I have, in 18 previous articles in this Second Civil War series—find them all by entering “second civil war” in the SMM homepage search bar–written about conditions that not only might, but surely would, provoke a Second Civil War. It has been widely asserted we have been in a Cold Civil War, arguably since the Obama Administration, and surely since the election of Donald Trump. No one should imagine Mr. Trump’s election was the proximate cause of this, nor that he actively encouraged it. He was elected because tens of millions of Americans were—and are—on the verge of exploding over the corrupt and ever-increasing deterioration of our republic. Donald Trump committed the unpardonable sin of putting America and Americans first and paring back government. For that he has been twice impeached, the second as something of a Parthian shot destined to miss.
D/S/Cs insist on referring to America as a democracy as though that term and “republic” were interchangeable. They are not. In a democracy, 50.000001% rule. They may write any law they please, ignore or wipe away any constitution, and deprive the majority of any right, or even their existence. It was this “tyranny of the majority” that motivated the Founders to establish a representative Republic, with the Constitution as the supreme law of the land, difficult to amend, because it prevents any majority from depriving the minority of life, liberty or property. However, that is true only so long as the politicians of all parties believe themselves the servants, not the rulers, of The People, and are voluntarily willing to uphold not only the letter, but intent of the Constitution as they swear to do upon taking office. Only when they voluntarily stay within the limits of their roles in our system of checks and balances, rather than constantly seeking to subvert them, can we survive as united states.
We find ourselves increasingly and reasonably fearing the outbreak of a hot Civil War, and even more so as the first week of the Harris Administration draws to a tragicomic close–Joe Biden is a senile place keeper, the bait of the vilest bait and switch scam in American history—as everything Biden’s handlers have done has damaged America and the American people and strengthened our enemies. They have done nothing to unify and strengthen America—quite the opposite—and promise to do worse, much worse.
There is one bill, which if passed, would ensure the outbreak of the Second Civil War and the destruction of our union: H.B.1, the deceptively named “For the People Act of 2019.” The full text is available here. Lest anyone imagine the danger is not imminent, understand it has already passed the House in March of 2019 and awaits passage in the Senate. In a 50/50 Senate with Kamala Harris breaking ties, it is entirely possible for this liberty destroying abomination to become law. And D/S/Cs are threatening to pass “major legislation” under budget reconciliation, the way they passed Obamacare. For D/S/Cs to realize their plan to rule—not govern—America, or the smoldering ashes of what used to be America, the passage of H.B.1 is an essential predicate.
Consider what CBS News said about the bill upon its passage in the House in March of 2019:
Democrats passed House Resolution 1 (H.R. 1) Friday, a bill which could be the most sweeping anti-corruption measure passed by the House of Representatives in a generation, by a vote of 234 to 193. The bill focuses on voting rights, campaign finance, and government ethics. But it appears to have no chance in the Senate.
Sponsored by Rep. John Sarbanes, D-Maryland, H.R. 1, or the ‘For the People Act,’ is a wide-ranging piece of legislation that in its words seeks ‘to expand Americans’ access to the ballot box, reduce the influence of big money in politics, and strengthen ethics rules for public servants and for other purposes.’ The Washington Post called it ‘perhaps the most comprehensive political-reform proposal ever considered by our elected representatives.’
Well. If CBS and The Washington Post think it’s wonderful, Normal Americans must flee in terror. In reality, it would unambiguously violate the Constitution, taking away all state power to regulate voting—which is mandated by the Constitution–and placing it in federal D/S/C hands. It would federalize vote fraud on a national scale and ensure no Republican could ever again be elected without the consent of D/S/Cs. It would turn every state into California, and then, where would Americans flee for freedom? The Independent Sentinel provides a basic list of the consequences (my commentary in bold):
*Internet-only registration with electronic signature submission. In other words, no voter ID. Vote early, vote often, vote on behalf of the dead, your cat, your favorite goldfish, your potted plant, there would be nothing to prevent you from submitting thousands of votes, and no way to disqualify fake votes. With registration not tied to any official record, computer manipulation will be easy and untraceable.
*Nationwide ‘Motor Voter’ registration. If you get a driver’s license, you are automatically registered to vote. Perfect for those states that issue DLs to illegals, and a predicate to national driver’s licenses issued to everyone, including illegals, the dead, your cat, your imaginary friend from childhood…
*16-year-olds required to be registered to vote. Children voting is a big plus for Democrats. The founders were wary about giving the vote to just anyone, fearing they’d be too uninformed to vote wisely. At this suggestion, they’re spinning like lathes in their graves. What could go wrong?
*Nationwide same-day registration. Nothing like letting people too lazy to register beforehand vote. This would ensure there would be no embarrassing discrepancies in the number of votes cast and the number of registered voters. Corrupt officials would know how many votes were cast, and how many registrations were needed to match. Either total could be easily manipulated as required.
*Grants ($25M) for using minors in election activities. [brainwashing] Socialists/Communists well understand the necessity of seizing the minds of the young as early as possible.
*Prohibiting attempts to clean voter rolls of non-residents. This too would help eliminate the aforementioned embarrassing discrepancies.
*Murderers and rapists can vote. Because who is more deserving or qualified, and who is more likely to vote for D/S/Cs? The Constitution gives the states the sole power to decide this issue. The Congress cannot invalidate the Constitution with any law—not that D/S/Cs give a damn about that.
*Mandatory early voting. Because responsible people—Republicans—prefer to vote in person on election day in the forlorn hope it makes fraud more difficult. This would help D/S/Cs know in advance precisely how many votes would have to be “found.”
*Banning voter ID. This is the primary factor getting in the way of fraud and absolute D/S/C rule.
*Roadwork for DC statehood and territory statehood. To ensure a permanent D/S/C Senate majority. Oh, and it’s unconstitutional to make DC a state—not that D/S/Cs give a…
*It gives federal workers [union people, mostly Democrats] SIX DAYS of paid vacation to work the polls. We must have politically reliable people in such vital, local roles to ensure the right—left—results.
*The bill provides stiff penalties for anyone who ‘harasses’ poll workers and government administrators. Questioning election results can be prosecuted under a broad definition of what constitutes harassment. We’re seeing the groundwork for this—and prosecution for wrong think/wrong speak in general–being laid as I write.
And there is more, as Heritage.org, explains:
*Require states to count ballots cast by voters outside of their assigned precinct, overriding the precinct system used by almost all states that allows election officials to monitor votes, staff polling places, provide enough ballots, and prevent election fraud. Mandates no-fault absentee ballots, which are the tool of choice for vote thieves. If elections are to be run entirely by federally controlled minions, these measures are a necessity. As an aphorism attributed to Stalin said, it doesn’t matter who votes, but who counts the votes.
*Prevent election officials from checking the eligibility and qualifications of voters and remove ineligible voters. This includes restrictions on using the U.S. Postal Service’s national change-of-address system to verify the address of registered voters; participating in state programs that compare voter registration lists to detect individuals registered in multiple states; or ever removing registrants due to a failure to vote no matter how much time has gone by. Every “ballot,” no matter how obviously fraudulent, will be counted. Any ballot for other than D/S/C candidates may and will disappear as necessary to achieve pre-determined results.
*Violate the First Amendment and could cover a vast range of legal activity. Voter intimidation or coercion that prevents someone from registering or voting is already a federal crime under the Voting Rights Act and the National Voter Registration Act. But H.R. 1 adds an additional provision to prevent interference with registering or voting that is so vague that it could easily interfere with free speech and other lawful activity. Any law that cannot be understood by the citizen of average intelligence is void for vagueness. When D/S/Cs write vague laws, they do it because they intend to violate the law and the Constitution and harass and punish their political enemies.
*Expand regulation and government censorship of campaigns and political activity and speech, including online and policy-related speech. H.R.1 imposes onerous legal and administrative compliance burdens and costs on candidates, citizens, civic groups, unions, corporations, and nonprofit organizations. Many of these provisions violate the First Amendment, protect incumbents, and reduce the accountability of politicians to the public. Any bets on whether unions will actually be regulated? At least as long as they stick to the narrative?
*Reduce the number of Federal Election Commission members from six to five, allowing the political party with three commission seats to control the commission and engage in partisan enforcement activities. That commission has, all too often, insisted on following the law and the Constitution. That must change.
*Prohibit state election officials from participating in federal elections and impose numerous other ‘ethics’ rules that are unconstitutional or unfairly restrict political activity. And in so doing, demolish the Tenth Amendment.
*Transfer the right to draw congressional districts from state legislatures to ‘independent’ commissions whose members are unaccountable to voters. H.R. 1 makes it a violation of federal law to engage in ‘partisan’ redistricting and mandates inclusion of alien population, both legal and illegal, in all redistricting. This is an anti-democratic, unconstitutional measure that takes away the ability of the citizens of a state to make their own decision about redistricting. Which is precisely the point. I’m sure the “independent” commissions will be fair and non-partisan.
*Violate separation of powers and directly interfere with the President’s constitutional duties.H.R. 1 bans his political appointees, such as the Attorney General, from participating in, directing the defense of, or assisting in any matter (including lawsuits against a President’s policies, programs, executive orders, or his enforcement of the law) in which the President is named as a party. Can’t have America’s primary law enforcement officer able to enforce the law, now can we? He might not be politically reliable.
Take the link and read the whole, evil bill, gentle readers. It’s long, but it’s the initial and essential first step to the elimination of our republic. This bill would not only make it easier to commit election fraud on a national scale, it would codify it–require it by federal law, overriding all state election laws and the Constitution.
There’s a reason D/S/Cs increasingly call what they want “democratic socialism.” I’ve covered only the high points of the portions of this demolition of our republic that relate to voting. There is a great deal more damage, designed not only to silence and punish dissenters, but to give D/S/Cs near-total power, establish an eternal D/S/C state unaccountable to voters, and wield total control over every aspect of their lives. If this bill passes, normal, honest Americans might vote one more time in 2022. A few hopeless optimists might even vote in 2024, but thereafter, no sane American would believe their vote mattered at all, and when that realization sinks in, D/S/Cs will quickly discover how very wrong they are about the essential nature of Americans and what they will and will not abide.
If this passes the Senate, if there are no Democrat Senators that remain Americans, will the shooting begin the next day? That’s unlikely. Americans will put up with a great deal before they are moved to fight. It almost certainly won’t start with wide spread armed conflict.
Emboldened by their ever-increasing seizure of power, by the near-total defeat of Republicans in 2022 and 2024—probably even earlier–D/S/Cs will be encouraged to more, and more brutal, acts of repression. Federal bureaucrats will exercise arrogant, cruel and personal power as never before. As more and more Americans are imprisoned, their families and lives obliterated, individuals, at first, and then groups, will not engage in polite protests within a Constitution that exists only on paper. They will respond with finality against their tormentors in federal offices throughout the land. They will come for the bureaucrats, enforcers and politicians that have stolen their liberty and their dignity. They will come too, perhaps even more wrathfully, for collaborators, as it is in every civil war.
That’s an important point. A wise senior Air Force Security Police NCO once told me you could get people to do what you asked, unless you took away their dignity. The process of seizing absolute power, of ripping away liberty, is the ultimate act of depriving a people, and individuals, of their dignity. It’s necessary to turn them into obedient, fearful peasants, but people deprived of their dignity have nothing left to lose, and everything to gain.
It has been said we can vote ourselves into a socialist dictatorship, but we have to shoot our way out. This bill would bypass that voting step. There will be other usurpations on the path to tyranny, but this is the most dangerous and far reaching thus far—in only a week–and it was begun long before the 2020 election. Even without the passage of this bill, America as we know her may be living on borrowed time. With this bill as corrupt and unconstitutional law, our time will run out more quickly than any have yet predicted.
