How the Democrats Weaponize the Elections Process

Today, I argue the Democrats are weaponizing the elections process to rig elections in their favor.  Before I give you examples, let me first say that the recent exit of several states from ERIC – the thinly disguised get-out-the-vote effort for Democrats posing as a voter list maintenance operation – shows it is possible to undo the weaponization.  The days of Republicans and the political Right playing the patsy are over.

The first example of weaponization is federal DHS funding of a nonprofit called the Center for Internet Security to provide cybersecurity services to county elections offices free of charge.  The Center is not an honest broker.  It was instrumental in flagging supposed election ‘misinformation’ for the government / Big Tech censorship enterprise now well-known because of the release of the Twitter files and the Missouri court case.  So what we have here is censorship masquerading as cybersecurity.  This is the same artifice the U.S. Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) uses in claiming that preventing ‘misinformation’ is somehow part of their mission to protect critical infrastructure.  Critics say states are perfectly capable of strengthening cybersecurity in the elections process on their own, citing Florida as an example.

Another left-wing nonprofit – U.S. Digital Response – purports to help local elections officials with better digital tools to run elections.  It’s funded by big money from the Left, including the Ford Foundation and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.  It’s tied in with other left-wing entities which are all part of what has come to be called ‘Zuckerbucks’, the dubious private financing of elections.  Critics say US Digital Response in actuality works to help left-wing candidates win elections.

These are not the only nonprofits engaged in 501(c)(3) abuse – doing things never contemplated when tax-exempt status was initiated.   These so-called charities, which are supposed to be in the business of educating the public, have been weaponized to turn out likely Democrat voters in elections.  They are legally prohibited from conducting partisan voter registration drives, but get around the law by microtargeting certain demographics – “unmarried women, people of color, Millennials, Gen Z, and other historically under-represented groups in the electorate” – all of which lean Democrat.  Prominent nonprofits engaged in this effort include the Voter Participation Center and the Center for Voter Information.  They promote mail-in voting and ignore uncompetitive red states.  Critics have called for banning nonprofit voter registration drives.

State and local governments are also weaponizing elections.  A bill in the Democrat-controlled Michigan legislature would reduce citizen participation in the elections process under the guise of keeping election workers ‘safe’.  If enacted, all elections officials would have to do is claim they feel ‘intimidated’ or ‘harassed’ and citizen poll watchers could be slapped with felony charges.  Democrats keep saying elections officials are being threatened but haven’t produced much evidence of that, so far.  So this is a bill that addresses a non-problem but in actuality makes it easier for the Democrats to cheat in elections.

East Lansing is compelling landlords to help register new tenants to vote, another likely Democrat constituency.  The landlords have sued, arguing this is unconstitutional compelled speech.  Chicago is pressuring inmates to vote in elections.  They are another likely Democrat constituency.  The inmates themselves are objecting, saying they are not registered to vote or are registered  elsewhere.  Critics say the city is engaged in illegal ballot harvesting and scooping up votes where there are no cameras or poll watchers.   Seattle has been handing out taxpayer-funded “democracy dollars” to another likely Democrat constituency – low-income residents – since 2015.  These are $100 worth of gift cards the voters can direct to their favorite political campaigns.  I don’t know how that’s legal, but it shouldn’t be.  You can bet if this scheme benefitted the Republicans, the Democrats in control of Seattle wouldn’t be doing it.

All of this may seem like small potatoes to you, but here’s where it’s headed if Democrat weaponization of the elections process is left unchecked:  Tens of thousands gathered last month to protest election law changes in Mexico.  Critics say the changes hobble the election agency that helped end one-party rule there.  I guarantee you there are Democrats in the U.S. who are looking at that and wondering to themselves, ‘how can we do that here? How can we rig the elections process, achieve one-party rule, and never get voted out again?’   If this sounds implausible to you after hearing the stories I told you about today, all I can say is you’re naïve.  The stories show you without question the Democrats are up to no good.

Marx and the Banning of Elements in the Periodic Table

Examining the problem, reaction, solution/thesis, counter thesis, solution, or the dialectic scam of the left.

There certainly seems to be more than one understanding of this phrase. Here is our shot at it. Of course, there are scholars of Hegel/Marx who read this site, and we welcome any corrections or other interpretations of this well known phrase.

Picking Global Warming as an example, we have a completely invented problem which of course can be manipulated in any way needed to end up at the point you want to land on. Primarily, the destruction of the West with its notions of free market economy and individual rights. Since the problem is fake, and created and enforced by “consensus” (See video below) all the reactions from people calling it out as fake must be dealt with using the dialectic attack of hate speech. This was fabricated by a second generation Frankfurt School acolyte, a certain Habermas, in the form of “Discourse Theory”.

For the past many decades, various leftist controlled governments and leftist think tanks, have attempted to use the element of Carbon as a means to control industry and humanity in a highly selective manner. Like slavery as an issue, we must only examine the ‘problem’ of CO2 production in Western and free market nations, more accurately perhaps, in cultures with the concept of individual rights as being sacrosanct. We must not look at slavery in Africa or Islam ever but must focus on the past actions in The USA pretty much exclusively in terms of passing moral judgment. And we must not look at really dirty industrial activity, let alone CO2 production in China or India but must pretend that CO2 produced by any and all means connected to humans in the West as an existential threat to the entire planet.

There should be no need to try and disprove the idea that CO2 is a problem on this site. I do have a dedicated page to the science of it here on Vlad but I don’t maintain it very well as to engage in a debate based on a lie is to lose that debate since only one side seeks to know the truth and the power of the lie is much greater in the short run. At least where the goal is destruction.

One fact though, is that where CO2 is produced, more life happens. Plants grow etc. Plants, and life, are made of carbon. Even on the side of highways, plants tend to thrive from a truly poisonous form of carbon, CO1 or Carbon monoxide. CO2 is actually pumped into greenhouses to help plants hit their optimal growth rate.

But let’s pretend that CO2 production was a problem. Then why are those who wrap themselves in a false flag of environmentalism, so opposed to nuclear power? Its the obvious solution to those who claim that carbon dioxide is an existential threat to the planet. Whatever the issues with nuclear power, it cannot be as bad as that.

And then there is this:


A very worthy deeper dive:

So we have a solution now for food production that is safe, energy efficient and absorbs far more carbon than it produces.

Global Warming is a consensus based thing though. Meaning communists agreed on creating it and presenting it as an existential problem in order to get to the solution they want, which is communism. No real world approach to solving even the non-problem of “global-warming” will be entertained and any attempt to expose it as the fraud it is will be met with charges akin to hate speech. “Climate-denier” for example, makes moral equivalence with a Holocaust denier to one who would deny the ‘existential threat of global warming’. A fairly palpable use of the Hate-Speech tactic.

More recently, in order to destroy farming in the Netherlands and replace these farms with what will almost certainly be beehive brutalist housing for illegal mostly Muslim and African migrants forced on the local population since before 2015, a new element and compound had to be demonized as an existential threat. Nitrogen, which makes up damn near 80% of the total atmosphere, and ammonia.

I won’t even bother to deal with the issue of nitrogen. To think that the tiny amount of nitrogen released on a few dutch farms justify the actions against farmers we see in the Netherlands is even worthy of rebuttal on that basis, means a lack of understanding of the tactic at play. Much like when one knows that nearly all human beings are born either a man or a woman (with the exception of extremely few genetic mutations which end with those individuals as they tend to be sterile) and to pretend these are fungible is, well risible.

So let’s look at the new threat of ammonia.

How could we somehow solve the issue of ammonia in a way that would satisfy those who claim its a problem while maybe at the same time, solving other problems many are concerned about:

The bottom line is:

The problems we are bombarded with, from Covid to vaccine hesitancy. From global warming to cow flatulence. From Nitrogen to ammonia, are all fake problems which, even by engaging about it, causes us to lose. These are not problems at all, and some, to the extent they might be, are selectively enforced against the Western nations and peoples with zero effort to deal with these non-problems in places like China, North Korea, India and other places where the raw production of these gasses and so on are orders of magnitude higher than in the West.

We need to understand that so much of what we engage with on a day to day basis is we, the intellectual descendants of Socrates, being constantly basted with pseudo-reality and false cosmologies in order to destroy Western civilization where it actually lives.

In our own minds.

VIDEO: Defunding police is ONE STEP before banning all private property

Before anyone scoffs at the headline, remember that a few short months ago, even the most red pilled observer showed total denial that police departments would ever be defunded or even serious talk about it. Yet here we are.

After watching the FOX clip below, please watch the DSA clip edited in August of 2019, but filmed sometime before that.

UPDATE: BREAKING: Minneapolis Unanimously Approves Abolishing Police Force

On Friday, the Minneapolis City Council voted 12-0 to approve a measure to abolish the city’s police department.

The unanimous vote will not automatically dismantle the police department, but it is the first step in a much longer legislative process, according to the New York Post.

The idea of dismantling police departments gained recognition among city council members amid city-wide, and eventually nationwide, riots after George Floyd was killed by police officer Derek Chauvin last month.

The Post continues that the vote to abolish the police force will require amending Minneapolis’s charter, and that a draft amendment suggests replacing the police force with a “Department of Community Safety and Violence Prevention.” This department would consist of peace officers and use a “holistic, public health-oriented approach” to ensure public safety.

The proposal will have to first pass through a committee, be reviewed by Minneapolis’s Charter Commission, and finally approved again by the entire city council by August 21st. However, Mayor Jacob Frey, a radical Leftist in his own right, still is against the idea of abolishing the police and can veto the measure.
