WASHINGTON, August 23, 2017 — Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., the top Democrat in the U.S. Senate, is demanding that President Trump disband his commission to investigate voter fraud. Schumer says the commission is a product of the same hate-filled ideology that spurred neo-Nazis and white supremacists in Charlottesville earlier this month.
Doubling down on all things Trump, Schumer says that if the President doesn’t disband the Commission, he will force a fight over an amendment to shut it down when Congress returns in September.
The only problem for Schumer and the Democrats is that their ability to scream their lies about how anything that happens in the world is a result of President Trump is coming to a close.
America is getting tired of stupid, particularly liberal-stupid, whose first rule is that “Voters are stupid.” No, we are not. Not even the ones who voted for Donald Trump. Particularly not those who voted for Donald Trump.
Schumer is attempting to whip up his base with feigned insult over the President’s remarks about Charlottesville. He is attempting to whip up mid-term support for Democratic candidates while doing anything and everything to stop the President from advancing his own agenda.
They—Schumer and friends—claim that there is no voter or electoral fraud in America, except for fraud perpetrated by Republicans with the help of Russian hackers. The Washington Times gives us ten clear instances of verifiable voter fraud. (No, voter fraud isn’t a myth: 10 cases where it’s all too real).
Unfortunately for Schumer and his ilk, Americans have pulled the MSM blanket off. They know that the only way to know what the president is doing is to follow him on Twitter or Facebook or watch his rallies on Fox.
Schumer claims that the commission, whose goals are to look at fraudulent voters and bloated voting rolls, is somehow an effort to keep minorities from the polls. That is, he claims that a commission on non-existent electoral fraud is itself an act of electoral fraud. Despite tossing out liberal trigger words like “white supremacy” and “conservatives”, he fails to explain how the commission perpetrates such fraud.
“Under the guise of voter fraud, which experts agree is practically non-existent, conservative forces in the administration, cheered on by white-supremacy-stoking publications like Breitbart News, are reviving the old playbook of disenfranchising minority voters,” Schumer wrote in a post on Medium. “Unfortunately, hardly anything would make the torch-bearing men who just marched on Charlottesville any happier than for this effort to succeed.”
The voter fraud commission is looking at illegal registration and voting by non-citizens, which has happened despite Schumer’s screeds that it has not. The Commission is also looking at barriers that would keep legitimate voters, including blacks, the elderly and the poor, from the polls.
One wonders what Schumer hopes to keep the commission from finding. He seems to be holding something behind his back, insisting all the time that nothing is there. It seems unlikely that Schumer is demanding the President’s obedience from a position of integrity.
The Commission has met exactly once. That, it seems, is entirely too often for Chuck Schumer.
