By now you have probably heard that Major League Baseball (MLB) moved the All-Star Game out of Atlanta. MLB cowered like a frightened soy boy to a radical lunatic Democrat operative when it decided to join the Woke Supremacy in claiming the reason for its decision was that the new Georgia election integrity law was racist. Of course, the argument that the new law is racist is not real, but the fear of the crazy person pushing them to do it is.
As predicted by anyone who has kept up with Georgia politics, the lying miscreant applying behind-the-scenes pressure was failed Georgia lunatic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams, the same woman who still refuses to concede her race against current Governor Brian Kemp.
On Wednesday evening, Fox News confirmed that Abrams was the culprit behind the MLB Commissioner’s decision.
“Major League Baseball (MLB) commissioner Robert Manfred decided to move the All-Star Game on his own after holding extensive discussions with voting rights groups associated with NBA loudmouth Lebron James, Stacey Abrams, and racist loudmouth Al not so Sharpton,” according to sources familiar with the situation.
“Abrams and Sharpton told the commissioner players would boycott the game if not. Sources say that Abrams’ current stance, that she is disappointed about the Georgia boycott, is suspect as she was a key player in the decision,” the report continued. “James has publicly supported the Georgia boycott,” adding to the commissioner’s pressure.
In other words, Abrams lied about being “disappointed” over the boycott when she was instrumental in the threats made to the MLB commissioner.
Threats like that are called extortion, a felony, and I wonder if the Georgia Attorney General will investigate?
“Abrams’ group and Sharpton also urged the commissioner to support other issues, including voter drives and H.R. 1, the For the People Act — sweeping election reform that recently passed the House,” the Fox report continued.
Apparently, Abrams was not the only one who lied here. When the MLB issued its statement, it appears that it lied to baseball fans and the players about the reasons behind its decision.
“Over the last week, we have engaged in thoughtful conversations with Clubs, former and current players, the Players Association, and the Players Alliance, among others, to listen to their views,” the statement read. No mention of LeBron James, Al Sharpton, or Stacey Abrams.
Those “among others” are radical leftist members of various levels within the Woke Supremacy who seem to be the actual force behind the MLB’s decision to move the game out of Atlanta, a decision that cost small businesses and the state of Georgia about $100 million in revenue.
MLB has since moved the game to blue-state Colorado, which has even stricter voting laws than Georgia. They moved the All-Star Game out of Atlanta, a city that is 51 percent black to Denver, a city that is about 91 percent white because they said Georgia’s new voting law is racist. And yet Colorado’s voting laws, at least in the Woke Supremacy’s mind, are worse than Georgia’s.
For example, Georgia has 17 days of in-person early voting, while Colorado only has 15. Colorado also has a photo ID requirement to vote in person. Colorado has the exact same rule that campaign workers may not give anything to voters standing in line that Georgia has.
Knowing all of this, does the MLB’s move make any sense at all?
Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms on Tuesday did her due diligence for the Supremacy and issued an Administrative Order that fights Georgia’s election integrity law, which she is not allowed to do. What is it with Democrats overstepping their authority, and what is it with the media never reporting on it?
Bottoms’ Administrative Order declares that the election integrity measures signed into law by Governor Brian Kemp make changes that “include empowering officials to take over local election boards, limiting the use of ballot drop boxes, and imposing new voter identification requirements and limitations for the use of absentee ballots.”
Well, I’ve got news for the mayor. The Constitution’s Article I, Section 4, gives state legislatures sole authority over election laws. Anything that Bottoms was used to at the local level for federal elections can be changed by the legislature. That’s how it works.
Bottoms also made the same old argument that “voting restrictions will disproportionately impact residents in cities and counties with high-density populations, including the City of Atlanta, and will impose barriers to their ability to vote.” She could have shortened it to the law is racist.
These are the same Democrats who ignore, “…shall not be infringed,” when it comes to the Second Amendment and they don’t give a damn about a disproportionate impact on residents in cities when it comes to protecting themselves with a firearm.
Georgia law prohibits cities from creating a “sanctuary policy,” yet in 2019 Bottoms signed an administrative order blocking the city jail from holding US Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) detainees.
In short, Democrats have selective outrage.
And the data is not on the mayor’s side with her argument about the election integrity law impacting residents in cities and counties – read black voters – because multiple studies show that voter ID laws do not and have not suppressed any voter registrations or voter turnout. Bottoms subscribes to the racist argument that black people are too stupid to learn how to get an ID even though she is black herself and has ID. The mayor also cannot lie about black voters being too poor to get an ID because voter IDs in Georgia are free, paid for by other people’s money if you qualify. I would venture to guess that it’s probably higher than 98 percent of black people who live in Georgia already have ID. Otherwise, they could not function in society today. And it’s incredibly insulting to claim otherwise, even for political reasons.
President Joe Biden, Stacey Abrams, and other members of the Democrat Woke Supremacy have referred to the Georgia election integrity law as “Jim Crow” infuriating Georgia Governor Brian Kemp, causing him to go public and fight back at such an egregious accusation.
“There is nothing ‘Jim Crow’ about requiring a photo or state-issued ID to vote by absentee ballot – every Georgia voter must already do so when voting in-person,” Kemp said in a statement to The Hill.
“President Biden, the left, and the national media are determined to destroy the sanctity and security of the ballot box,” Kemp said, adding, “It is obvious that neither President Biden nor his handlers have actually read” the Georgia law. Did anyone really expect them to read it?
Remember all that Jim Crow racism that was found in the new Georgia voting law? Yeah, I don’t either, but that didn’t stop the Major League Baseball (MLB) from caving to the radical Woke Supremacy from pulling the All-Star Game from Atlanta and moving it to a new stadium to host.
MLB went woke and is now going out of its way to let Republicans and conservatives know that it doesn’t give a damn if they ever watch professional baseball.
They pulled the game from Atlanta because of the Georgia election integrity law that is pretty much in line with the majority of states on top of most countries around the world. They chose who to award the All-Star Game to blue-state Colorado.
DENVER (AP) — AP source: MLB to relocate All-Star Game to Denver's Coors Field after pulling it from Atlanta over Georgia voting laws.
Colorado Governor Jared Polis is a Democrat, and it is one of the very few Democrat-run states out there that has rolled back their COVID-19 restrictions.
“For the first time in 550 days, fans will be welcomed back at Coors Field to cheer on the Rockies during Thursday’s home opener,” the Rockies announced. “Given new safety guidelines and protocols put in place at Coors Field to help protect fans from COVID, health officials feel optimistic about the decision to allow a reduced sized crowd within the stadium.”
Coors Field will still have some restriction guidelines for fans to be allowed to enter the stadium.
Here’s where it shows that the people running the MLB don’t know their butt from their elbow. Colorado has stricter voting laws than Georgia, a lot stricter. For example, Colorado has in-person voting voter ID while Georgia only has voter ID for absentee ballot voting. Colorado mandates signature verification for mail-in ballots that Georgia got rid of, and Georgia only requires the last four of the voter’s Social Security number or their driver’s license number (which I can almost guarantee the Democrats will exploit to cheat next election), and Colorado has a similar ban on food and water being given away to people standing in line to vote by campaign workers that Georgia has.
People asked me why is the food and water in line thing important? “Hey buddy, it’s hot out and you look like you’re sweating there. Here, have an ice-cold bottle of water on Joe Biden,” said the man wearing a “Biden for President,” shirt who works for the Biden campaign.
Not only was it a stupid move to cower to the radicals and pull the game from Atlanta, but OMG-stupid to hand it over to a state that the Woke Supremacy will most certainly scream about if they ever cared enough to find out what’s in Colorado’s voting laws.
The expectations of what the MLB has done will cost Cobb County, Georgia, where the stadium is situated, and estimates say that the surrounding areas will lose $100 million in revenues from tourism.
More than corporate 200 CEOs have caved with the MLB by also opposing election integrity laws like Georgia’s and Colorado’s.
The Democrats and their boot-licking sycophants in the Fake News media have lied about the new Georgia voting law. The Washington Post gave President Joe Biden a Four Pinocchios rating for blatantly lying about the new law when he said it rolled back the time that polls close to 5 pm, saying that it will hurt working people because they just get off from work at that time and they won’t be able to vote. The fact of the matter is the polls are open in Georgia from 7 am to 7 pm. The new Georgia law actually expands voting time for early voting as well. Biden just blatantly lied.
So why all the lying? What the Woke Supremacy is upset about is voter ID. Even though academic studies show that voter ID does not suppress anyone’s vote, Democrats make up whoppers that they do. Even the radical left of Lenin’s website Vox knows it’s not true. Voter ID is strong election integrity, and that scares the daylights out of Democrats who can’t win races without cheating. Without any credible reason to be against voter ID Democrats played the race card and said that having to show ID to vote is worse than Jim Crow, even though a black person who shows ID to vote knows that their vote is secure because they had to show ID. Democrats want to cheat and voter ID shuts that down.
Democrats are so terrified of voter ID they say things they don’t even realize are insulting the very people they claim to be fighting for. For example, Democrats will tell you that black people are too stupid to be able to get a voter ID. They won’t actually use the word stupid, they’ll use a much more flowery way of saying it, but you get the point. Democrats will also tell you that black voters are too stupid to learn how to get on the Internet to apply for a voter ID. How much more insulting can they be to black people and people of color who already have photo IDs because you can’t do anything in this country without one?
The bottom line is the MLB and hundreds of other corporations made the choice to say “screw you” to 40 percent of their buying market and with luck that bottom line will affect all of theirs until they get the point.
Cancel culture has now attacked America’s pastime, and it has become clear that corporations fear the Woke Supremacy. They haven’t yet learned that there is a whole country out that with far superior numbers than the Supremacy and then you start to anger them by siding with her Wokers, it’s going to harm your bottom line.
“Baseball is already losing tremendous numbers of fans, and now they leave Atlanta with their All-Star Game because they are afraid of the Radical Left Democrats who do not want voter ID, which is desperately needed, to have anything to do with our elections,” Trump said. “Boycott baseball and all the woke companies that are interfering with Free and Fair Elections. Are you listening Coke, Delta, and all!”
Major League Baseball made the decision to move its annual All-Star Game out of Atlanta after President Joe Biden told ESPN on Wednesday that he would “strongly support” the due to his objections with the new election security bill.
“I think today’s professional athletes are acting incredibly responsibly. I would strongly support them doing that. People look to them. They’re leaders,” Biden said. “Look what’s happened with the NBA, as well. Look what’s happened across the board. The very people who are victimized the most are the people who are the leaders in these various sports, and it’s just not right.”
Folks, this is the test of what the future will bring. Do we allow Democrats to continue to cheat during elections or do we stand up to them when they call us racist for wanting secure, free, and fair elections for everyone?
There was nothing racist in the bill. In fact, the new Georgia election security law expands voting hours and times, including on weekends. The only thing that the Democrats are upset about is the voter ID portion of the new law. Democrats for years now have resisted voter ID, giving the excuse that they believe it’s racist. That is another blatant lie. Only people with double-digit IQs could think that voter ID is a racist concept. Democrats want you to believe that black Americans are too stupid to know how to get a photo ID or how to vote online.
Joe Biden recently received Four Pinocchios from the Washington post for a blatant lie he told about the new Georgia law. Biden said that the new law in Georgia is “sick” and that the state is bringing back Jim Crow. The president of the United States said that the new law harms working people because they close the polls at 5 pm just when most folks are getting done work. The WaPo nailed him on that lie because there is nothing at all in the bill that says that. The law says that Election Day voting hours go from 7 am to 7 pm. Biden somehow twisted the expansion of voting times to a restriction.
In fact, the law expands voting hours and days for early voting. Think about how involved Biden’s lie was. He called it Jim Crow. He even said people can’t bring someone a bottle of water while waiting in line. That too is a bald-faced lie. The provision in the election bill allows voters to bring food or beverage in line, and they can even order food if they want. The provision Biden was lying about applies to people handing out campaign advertisements, or gifts, which is already found in similar laws in Minnesota, Montana, and New York, which has a likewise policy that applies to “meat, drink, tobacco, refreshment, or provision.” In other words, the law says that campaign workers cannot bring someone something when standing in line to vote. Anyone else can do whatever they want. In Biden’s home state of Delaware, election laws prohibit gifts and rewards during presidential primary elections. Biden lied because he wanted the Woke to believe that Georgia wanted to be mean to voters by not allowing someone to bring them water when they are standing in line to vote in the hot sun. It was a lie.
The All-Star Game was scheduled to be held at Truist Park, the home field of the Atlanta Braves on July 13. Atlanta has hosted the All-Star game only twice, once in 1972 and again in 2000. The game was expected to generate considerable revenue for the state’s economy. The MLB claims it moved the location of the game due to voting “restrictions” contained in SB 202. They were wrong about the bill, and I hope it hurts them in the pocketbook because there is no other way to stop Cancel Culture among corporations than to stand up to them and tell them that wed will no longer support corporations that cower to the Woke Supremacy.
“I have decided that the best way to demonstrate our values as a sport is by relocating this year’s All-Star Game and MLB draft,” MLB commissioner Rob Manfred said in a statement. “Major League Baseball fundamentally supports voting rights for all Americans and opposes restrictions to the ballot box.” Even though there are no restrictions to voting in the new bill.
JUST IN: @MLB announces it’ll move the All-Star Game and Draft out of Atlanta due to the state passing a new elections law last week. pic.twitter.com/rBVUQ6FMJG
Kemp criticized the MLB for its decision to cower to the Woke Supremacy, citing “cancel culture.” He told The Hill, “Today, Major League Baseball caved to fear, political opportunism, and liberal lies,” said Kemp. “Georgians — and all Americans — should fully understand what the MLB’s knee-jerk decision means: cancel culture and woke political activists are coming for every aspect of your life, sports included. If the left doesn’t agree with you, facts and truth do not matter.”
Republican Speaker of the Georgia House David Ralston said Georgia will not “be bullied by socialists and their sympathizers.” He added, “This decision is not only economically harmful, it also robs Georgians of a special celebration of our national pastime free of politics. But Georgia will not be bullied by socialists and their sympathizers,” Ralston said. “We will continue to stand for accessible, secure elections that are free and fair. And we will continue to speak truth despite extortion and intimidation.”
Major league baseball may have shot themselves in the foot. After they announced that they were pulling the All Star game out of Atlanta, Rep Jeff Duncan announced that he has ordered his staff to draft legislation to do away with their antitrust exemption. MLB is the only sport with such an exception. I love sports and I love politics but I can’t stand it when the two are combined.
The antitrust exemption was first established in 1922 and was reaffirmed in the Curt Flood Act in 1998 that was passed by congress. Duncan’s bill will eliminate the exemption and could cost major league baseball an arm and a league and would make them give up a lot of control on how the league is run. The Ted Cruz hashtag #GowokeGobroke.” says it all. If MLB wants to be political, they must be made to pay a price. And a hefty price it could be.
“An overwhelming bipartisan majority of Americans support requiring an ID to vote, and any organization that abuses its power to oppose secure elections deserves increased scrutiny under the law.”
Sen Bill Lee added:
“Why does @MLB still have antitrust immunity?”
“It’s time for the federal government to stop granting special privileges to specific, favored corporations—especially those that punish their political opponents.”
Popular teams such as the Yankees and the LA Dodgers would be able to control the movement of their franchises and would also allow them to negotiate their own television and radio contracts dealing with nationally televised games and could eventually change how free agency works and to their detriment at that.
MLB earlier Friday announced its decision to pull the All-Star Game out of the Peach State amid mounting calls to boycott businesses and events in Georgia that failed to condemn the state’s newly enacted voting measures. The law requires voters to have a photo ID to submit an absentee ballot and limits the number of ballot drop box locations, among other provisions.
Democrats and voting rights activists have condemned the law, arguing it will disproportionately make it harder for voters of color to make their voices heard in elections.
MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred defended the league’s decision to move the game, writing in a statement that it is “the best way to demonstrate our values as a sport.”
“Major League Baseball fundamentally supports voting rights for all Americans and opposes restrictions to the ballot box,” he added.
President Joe Biden and the rest of the Democratic Party circus minced no words about their anger over Georgia’s new voting law that Republican Governor Brian Kempsigned into law last week.
Biden just got slammed for lying about the Georgia law by none other than the Washington Post that gave him Four Pinocchios, which means a bald-faced-lie. Biden said there were things in the law that aren’t in the law. You can’t lie more blatantly than that.
Now they’re going to attack Major League Baseball.
Folks, there is nothing in the bill that should have sparked a mental breakdown for Democrats, that is, honest Democrats. The ones who are screaming bloody murder are upset that the new law shuts down a lot of their cheating during elections.
Regardless, Democrat activists are pushing the league to move the All-Star game out of Atlanta, and now they have President Joe Biden’s support.
The Midsummer Classic on July 13 is scheduled to be hosted by the Atlanta Braves at Truist Park, but haters of the new voting law want the MLB Players Association and the leaders of the organization to move the game.
It’s interesting that no one is talking about anything in the bill that is a real problem for black voters, yet they’re all saying that all the changes in the bill are a problem for minority voters. I had it out with a knucklehead leftist on Twitter this afternoon who kept telling me that changing the voting box deadline to 5 PM was going to harm black voters. I had to point out to him that the law adds an extra early voting day for primaries and general elections, and that people can vote all day long on Election Day, Georgia has early voting, and they can vote by absentee ballot. There is no reason under the sun to lose your mind over that part of the bill.
The liberal then repeated talking points by his leftist masters, saying that the state will now have more control in the election over County workers. I had to point out to him that the US Constitution says that the state legislature has sole authority over election laws; it says nothing about County workers. Democrats are upset about this because County workers were able to get away with changing rules and election laws, which is illegal, but no one pressed it because who wants to be labeled a racist?
Pretty soon all sports teams are going to be located in California.
MLBPA executive director Tony Clark allegedly said he “would look forward” to discussions about punishing the city over the new voting law. Translation: Holy Crap, why does this kind of nonsense have to happen now?
Sage Steele of ESPN interviewed Biden Wednesday night on the eve of Opening Day and asked him about Clark’s comments and about the insane argument of moving the All-Star game.
I don’t think Joe Biden has ever said no to any direct question about taking a policy stance on something that is bad for America and good for the Woke Supremacy. So naturally, he said he was all for it.
“I think today’s professional athletes are acting incredibly responsibly,” Biden began. “I would strongly support them doing that.” I wonder if Biden even knew what they were talking about?
“People look to them; they’re leaders,” he added, referring to the Woke Supremacy that has dominated professional sports over the last few years, especially at ESPN, which is why their ratings dropped drastically. Of course, they will blame everything else under the sun, but the fact of the matter is that the American people turn to sports to get away from the daily barrage of leftism that is thrown at them through every other facet of life. So when ESPN went Woke, it turned a lot of people off. And apparently, the network doesn’t care, because they’re still invoking politics into sports.
“Look at what happened with the NBA, as well. Look what’s happened across the board. The very people who were victimized the most are the people who are the leaders in these various sports, and it’s just not right.” Did Joe Biden just say that multi-millionaire athletes are victims?
“This is Jim Crow on steroids what they’re doing in Georgia and 40 other states,” he said. “What’s it all about? Imagine passing a law saying you cannot provide water or food for someone standing in line to vote. Can’t do that? Come on. Or you’re going to close the polling place at 5 o’clock when people just get off? This is all about keeping working folks that I grew up with from being able to vote.”
People forget the Jim Crow was a Democrat thing, not a Republican thing. The Republicans have always been for civil rights. They passed an Amendment that gave women the right to vote. They fought for the 15th Amendment, which says that the federal government may not discriminate against anybody from voting based on who they are. Democrats have party machines that control the county level of election workers. For decades they have had irregularities during elections that always seem to wind up in favor of Democrats. Article I, Section 4 of the US Constitution says that state legislatures have the power over state election laws. Therefore, Joe Biden is arguing against the Constitution by coming out against the Georgia legislature because the new law hurts the Democrats’ ability to cheat in elections, but the despicable thing is he’s playing the race card to do it.
The new voting law keeps the current Election Day voting hours of 7 am to 7 pm and will expand voting hours and voting days for early voting, despite what the Left is telling you.
We reported last week after President Joe Biden and progressive leftists of the Woke Supremacy supported by the Fake News industry spread vulgar lies about the new election integrity law in Georgia claiming the bill has voter suppression throughout and that it disproportionately impacts people of color, and that in turn Major League Baseball (MLB) commissioner Ron Manfred cowered to the radical leftists and moved the All-Star Game out of Atlanta.
Atlanta is 51% black, and in the name of racial justice, the MLB’s action will cost the surrounding Atlanta area about $100 million in revenues. The MLB has moved the game to Denver, Colorada, a city that is only 9% black. Colorado has even stricter election laws than Georgia. As dumb a decision as this was, no one should be scratching their heads wondering how this could have happened.
It is not a mystery to anyone with a triple-digit IQ that over the last few years the top officials at MLB, the National Football League (NLF), and the National Basketball Association (NBA), have decided to go Woke and alienate a big chunk of their paying audience by giving in to the cries for social justice and cowering to the leftist Woke Supremacy.
Red Sox President Sam Kennedy last year said, “Silence in the face of injustice is unacceptable,” after the death of George Floyd. Kennedy has made a commitment for Social Justice, Equity & Inclusion under the banner of Black Lives Matter where they have created Employee Resource Groups and Race-based roundtables, a bias audit on HR policies and practices, enhanced education and training for employees, players, and coaching staff related to diversity, equity, and inclusion and more. A lot more. Other teams have done similar things.
For a long time now, the sports network ESPN has seen their ratings plummet after going Woke. In June 2020, the Woke sports network saw the lowest ratings it has ever had in 41 years, their entire existence. It’s hard to fathom that a sports network became more ideologically leftist than CNN and the left-wing conspiracy network MNBC combined, but it did. In some of their programming, they completely abandoned sports coverage. My point is the result of going Woke is they are going broke as viewers who up to that point were willing to watch ESPN during the COVID pandemic since there was limited sports activity everywhere in the world, they have now abandoned the network. Needless to say, the network went into panic mode. I’m talking full-on crisis mode level awfulness.
And now the sports business world may also come to regret their decisions to go Woke because they too are alienating large numbers of fans. People are bombarded with left-wing political crap day in and day out, and it is in every facet of their lives. You can’t go to school, go to work, shop online, or do most of anything else without being hit in the face with left-wing politics these days. Social media is the playground of the Woke Supremacy, where social justice warriors have a rigged system created by the leftist tech tyrants.
People loved sports because none of the leftist gobbledygook was found there. Instead of constantly being told America is evil and unfair and that our society is systemically racist and all the other nonsense of mentally ill racial agitators, sports was the one place left where God-given talent and hard work won the day. It was the last place in America with an even playing field, and that attracts Americans. And now the Left ruined sports too, the impact of which is already being felt.
After the MLB’s decision to move the All-Star Game to Colorado, Atlanta Braves fans are already asking for refunds on season tickets. In 2020, all the major sports leagues saw their TV ratings spiral down. You can’t really blame COVID totally for this because when regular television shows were affected by the pandemic lockdowns and there were more people staying home than ever before, sports viewership should have risen, but instead, it went the other way.
Sports leagues and their networks thought they had the fans locked up as a captive audience and that they could throw at them whatever political garbage they wanted because they were hooked on sports. They had to sit there and take it. Until they no longer did.
I don’t think sports owners and the corporate folks ever grasped the level of anger and disgust that watching spoiled millionaire athletes kneel for our National Anthem yet stand for the Black Anthem while disrespecting the American flag and trashing law enforcement did to their fanbase.
In 2020, during the NFL regular season, viewership dropped 7% from the previous year. That’s the lowest average audience since 2017. MLB’s World Series TV ratings dropped 36% from 2019. The NBA didn’t do much better with the viewership during the NBA finals between the LA Lakers and the Miami Heat, where viewership dropped from 15.12 million the year before down to only 6.4 million. That’s more than half.
These trends show that fans will not tolerate professional sports being ruined by politics, and they will find entertainment elsewhere. That means they take their money elsewhere as well.
Ratings mean revenues and when ratings drop, so do the revenues. The question is are the corporate businesspeople of the professional sports world willing to continue the trend of losing money all to kiss the rear end of the Work Supremacy or will they learn that to stay alive you have to give the consumers what they want?
On Tuesday, Republican Wyoming Governor Mark Gordon signed a bill into law that now requires state residents to provide identification when they go to cast a ballot in an election.
The bill called HB0075, stipulates that Wyoming voters must show “acceptable identification” when voting in person and that “in-person voters can be challenged for failure to show acceptable identification,” when voting either on Election Day or during early voting.
State Representative Chuck Gray (R) was the primary sponsor of the bill, which nearly two-thirds of the Wyoming legislature co-sponsored.
“Today’s signing of my Voter ID legislation is a victory for the citizens of Wyoming,” Gray said on Tuesday, as reported by the Cowboy State Daily. “It is a necessary function of our Republic to provide our citizens with confidence that our elections are secure, fair, and valid. I am proud that we were able to meet this important milestone for Wyoming.”
Forms of identification that include a valid Wyoming driver’s license, a US passport, a Medicaid or Medicare insurance card, will all be acceptable under the new law.
“You really have every available type of identification to be used in this case, so no one has to feel like there’s an ID they can’t get,” Wyoming Secretary of State Ed Buchanan said during a Senate committee meeting last week. “One of the important things I emphasized early on this was in no way disenfranchising any voters.”
Some people on social media are already saying that hardly anyone lives in Wyoming, so they must all know each other. Idiotic comments aside, voter ID is about more than that.
In every state, dead people and people who moved out of the state remain on voter rolls. Democrats are famous for finding out voter registration information for those people and use it to vote in their name, either in person or by absentee or mail-in voting. That type of voter fraud made up the bulk of voter fraud cases during the 2020 election, at least according to the testimony of whistleblowers and more importantly data experts who analyzed the 2020 voter data.
Queue screaming Democrats.
Every time someone attempts to purge the dead and non-residents from the voter rolls, a screaming Democrat will pop up shouting “VOTER SUPPRESSION!” Democrats know that the more states that have voter ID, the fewer elections they will win.
Wyoming law prior to now has always required people to show proper identification when they go to register to vote, and not when they go to vote in person. Think of how many dead people and non-residents have voted because of that. Not anymore, at least not until Democrats figure out how to scam the system.
HB0075 goes into effect starting on July 1 and it will not apply to absentee voting, so you can bet the farm that absentee voting is what Democrats will switch to in order to cheat in future elections. Remember, give the Democrats an inch and they’ll steal an election.
After the 2020 election, a lot of states are going to be similarly doing election integrity laws just like what happened in Georgia. Georgia received an enormous amount of backlash and it was patently obvious that the Democrats were lying their tails off about voter suppression and claims that the new election integrity laws Georgia passed recently were akin to Jim Crow. Democrat lies about the new law caused Major League Baseball to pull the All-Star Game out of Atlanta with the MLB claiming they did it because after the new election integrity bill was signed into law it was “the best way to demonstrate our values as a sport.” Even though there is nothing racist or suppressive to black people in the new law, the MLB moved the game from a 51% black city and gave it to the 91% white city, Dever, Colorado. The potential of $100 million in revenues for the surrounding Atlanta area would have gone to black-owned businesses, and black communities in Atlanta are now gone because the MLB caved to the Woke Supremacy’s hysterical lies.
I believe the Left went so nuts over the Georgia law just to send a message to other states about what will happen to them if they follow suit. It didn’t work. Wyoming is now a voter ID state and hopefully, many more states will follow.
This story is the height of racism. When people use racism as a weapon when there is no racism to be found, they’re being racist. When people throw out accusations of racism without sufficient evidence, they’re a piece of garbage.
Media political and financial commentator Eric Bolling shut down an interview he was doing on the BBC on Wednesday when another guest who was on with him simultaneously said he was faking his concern for black communities.
Bolling suddenly left an interview by walking off camera with BBC’s “Newsnight” after the other guest, political commentator, and racial agitator Aisha Mills said that his concern for black communities wasn’t real.
The two of them were discussing Georgia’s new voting law as well as Major League Baseball’s (MLB) decision to pull the All-Star Game from Atlanta and moving it to Denver, Colorado, as a punishment to Atlanta over the new law.
Bolling pointed out that the MLB’s decision to pull the game from Atlanta hurt minorities, including minority-owned businesses. Bolling was responding to how the Democrats made the issue racial from the minute Governor Kemp signed the bill into law.
Atlanta is 51% black, therefore many businesses in the Atlanta surrounding area have to be black-owned. The potential for $100 million of revenues from the game was taken away from Atlanta businesses. The point Bolling was trying to make was that the MLB was pressured by Stacey Abrams and others to move the gave upon a threat that they would get MLB players to boycott games if they didn’t. Imagine that every game. Bolling pointed out that the MLB’s decision, which they claimed in a statement was based on the new voting law hurting black voters, actually hurt black people by killing the $100 million in revenues and gave it all to a city that is about 91% white.
Bolling is a financial guy. It’s one of the things he does for a living. He is qualified to talk about this subject.
Mills started out referring to what Bolling said as rubbish.
“Well, first of all let me just go back and address the rubbish that was just said, you know, this attack on liberals and boycotts, as if, um, somehow one holding corporations accountable, uh, is a problem…” Mills said.
Here is the problem with the asinine logic of what she said. First off, it wasn’t Major League Baseball that added voter integrity laws to Georgia law. They are about baseball. The same goes for Delta Wokelines, Woka Cola, and other businesses that cowered in the face of race-baiters like Mills, Stacey Abrams, Al Sharpton, LeBron James, and others. Those corporations didn’t act irresponsibly at all, so there was nothing they had to be held accountable over. That part was all made up by lying leftists like Aisha Mills.
So are we to believe that established corporations are now supposed to just get up and move out of a jurisdiction that the Woke Supremacy deems a problem for whatever is the issue of the month and they just happen to be unfortunate enough to be nearby? That would be a hell of an economic boom for U-Haul. But then again, U-Haul may have to up and haul ass out of Pheonix, Arizona if some Woke Supremacist race hustler wets their pants during a temper tantrum over something that has nothing to do with renting a moving truck.
Aisha Mills and her ilk are dividing our country based on racial sophistry.
During the exchange, Mills said, “I think it’s really rich for any Republican — especially a white man — to run around and claim they care about the economic condition of black communities and black businesses when that’s all a lie.”
“Especially a white man?” How racist is that? Eric said nothing out of line, not even coming close. But this is how it is today. Black race-baiters feel that they can say anything they want regardless of it being racist to make their point. They all have the same self-righteousness about them as if the world owes them something. It’s called Black Woke Privilege and it’s just as dangerous to the civil society as the gibberish rhetoric of white nationalists.
Bolling shot back, “That is not fair! You don’t know me. You don’t know who I am.”
Mills threw a “how dare you” at him while turning herself into a racial victim, claiming Bolling was only showing empathy for black people to create a wedge.
“I am … a black person in America,” Mills said. “Everything that these voting laws stand for … is all about racial discrimination. How dare you try to act like you are somehow a proponent of black people and businesses just to make a point and try to create a wedge? It’s ignorant, and it’s disrespectful.”
Did you catch her bizarre leap in logic? Mills was saying that being a white person, Bolling would not normally show empathy for black people or black-owned businesses and that he only mentioned how a majority-black city got screwed out of $100 million in revenues by MLB’s decision just to stir up racial problems in the country and create a wedge between racial groups.
That’s nuts. Who thinks like that? A sick person, a racist nut job who wears race on their sleeve, that’s who.
At that point, Bolling had enough and shot back, “That’s disgusting. I’m done. Put me off. That’s disgusting. I am nowhere near anything you are painting me to be, and the problem with American politics is exactly that. Because I’m white, you think I’m racist? That’s BS! I’m done.”
As Bolling moved to leave the interview, “Newsnight” host Emily Maitlis asked if he would remain for a question.
Bolling sat back down saying, “I don’t know why I’m staying here.” He followed up saying, “I need an apology.”
Mills fired back, “I’m not going to apologize for being offended.”
Can you believe this crazy woman? SHE was the one who was offended! She fabricated what she claimed to be offended about.
Folks, this is why I am believing more and more every day that this country is divided so badly it will never come together again. I don’t believe the country is divided by race. I believe we are divided by ideology and it is the Left’s decision to be this divided. They are the ones who use cancel culture, racial sophistry, and reverse racism disguised as righteous indignation. When you have people who are capable of making up disgusting things about other people out of whole cloth, knowing they can do it with impunity, and they share absolutely no values with anyone outside of their political ideology, how can you go on as a society? You cannot. Decent people of all walks of life, all races, colors, and creeds do not live this way, they do not think this way. And the decent people among us have absolutely nothing in common with the Woke Supremacy of the leftists.
After adding insult to injury Bolling finalized his intentions saying, “I’m done” and he walked off not to return.
Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms (D) Wednesday signed an executive order to “mitigate the impact” of the new voter integrity law passed by the state legislature, which Gov Brian Kemp says he will sign.
Bottoms does not have a legal right to counter state election law.
The Executive Order will have some minor impact inasmuch as the order requires making sure that the voters understand the new law and what is expected of them in order to vote.
Train staffers on voter registration related to early, absentee and in-person voting.
Inform residents about how to obtain a valid form of identification for absentee voting.
Place QR codes with links to voter registration and absentee voting information on official mailings, like water bills.
Develop public service announcements that adequately articulate the new voting deadlines, timelines and requirements.
The bill that Kemp signed was in reaction to the many suspicious activities during the 2020 vote. It makes it harder to cheat and therefore makes it much harder for Democrats to win and that’s why they oppose the law.
The voter integrity bill actually increases access to the polls, providing more hours when people can cast their ballots early. What the Democrats oppose is the voter ID requirement.
In Georgia, they are planning on auditing the votes in Fulton County where most of the problems arose.
Biden allegedly only won by about 12,000 votes and with the various problems they had, auditing Fulton County could swing the count to Trump but at this late date do not expect the election to be reversed no matter what.
“I want to be clear: I will not be backing down from this fight,” Kemp said during a Saturday press conference after the MLB decided to move the All-Star game from Georgia to Colorado. “We will not be intimidated, and we will also not be silenced.”
“The voting restrictions of SB 202 will disproportionately impact Atlanta residents—particularly in communities of color and other minority groups,” Bottoms said in a statement. “This Administrative Order is designed to do what those in the majority of the state legislature did not—expand access to our right to vote.”
“… I am hereby directing the Chief Equity Officer to consult with the Department of Law and develop a plan of action to mitigate the impact on City of Atlanta residents of the voting restrictions imposed by Senate Bill 202,” the executive order states.
