Memo to Democrats: Most European Governments Require Voter ID and Ban Absentee Voting

The pandemic provided Democrats with the perfect excuse to loosen voting laws and to expand mail-in voting across the U.S. They were so delighted with the result, they’ve been on a crusade to make these dangerous measures permanent ever since.

The left claims the voting reform laws recently passed in Georgia and Florida to curb the abuses that many of us believe led to widespread fraud in the November 2020 election, as racist.

President Joe Biden has referred to Georgia’s requirement of voter ID for absentee ballots as an “atrocity.” He called the law “Jim Crow in the 21st Century” and “a blatant attack on the Constitution,” according to the BBC.

RealClearInvestigations‘ John R. Lott, Jr. is the president of the Crime Prevention Research Center. His organization recently put together a database of worldwide voting rules which quite clearly shows that U.S. voting requirements are among the most lenient. He summarized his findings in an article entitled, “America the Outlier: Voter Photo IDs Are the Rule in Europe and Elsewhere.”

Contrary to what the Democrats would have us believe, most countries require voters to show identification before casting a ballot. Lott found that “election integrity measures [voter ID requirements] are widely accepted globally, and have often been adopted by countries after they’ve experienced fraud under looser voting regimes.”

Furthermore, Lott learned that, in some countries, a driver’s license is deemed to be an insufficient form of ID. “The Czech Republic and Russia require passports or military-issued IDs and others use national identity cards. Others go even further: Colombia and Mexico each require a biometric ID to cast a ballot.”

“Of 47 nations surveyed in Europe — a place where, on other matters, American progressives often look to with envy — all but one country requires a government-issued photo voter ID to vote.” Lott notes that “The exception is the U.K., and even there, voter IDs are mandatory in Northern Ireland for all elections and in parts of England for local elections. Moreover, [UK Prime Minister] Boris Johnson’s government recently introduced legislation to have the rest of the country follow suit.”

In fact, Lott cites a recent comment from the deputy leader of the Scottish National Party, Kirsten Oswald, that sounds remarkably familiar to the attacks lobbed at Republicans in the U.S.

Oswald claimed that “Boris Johnson’s Trump-like plans to disenfranchise thousands of voters across Scotland and the UK are an act of blatant Tory voter suppression – and must be stopped.” She opined, “There is a very real danger that many lower income, ethnic minority and younger people will be prevented from voting to fix a problem that doesn’t exist. These laws are designed to suppress votes among groups that traditionally vote against the Tories. It’s a disgrace.”

And, like many progressives in the U.S., she would like to open up voting to 16 and 17-year-olds, “refugees and foreign nationals with leave to remain.”

The rest of the world views the practice of mail-in voting even more harshly than the U.S. Lott discovered that “74 percent of European countries entirely ban absentee voting for citizens who reside domestically. Another 6% limit it to those hospitalized or in the military, and they require third-party verification and a photo voter ID. Another 15% require a photo ID for absentee voting.”

Although voter IDs are not required in Japan, Lott explains the Japanese government “provides each voter with tickets that bear unique bar codes. If the voter loses the ticket or accidentally brings the ticket for another family member, polling staff verifies the voter’s name and address using a computer with access to the city’s database.” In that case, the voter would be required to show “government-issued photo identification.”

As I see it, having to present a ticket with a unique bar code is a variation on a voter ID requirement. It’s simply a different way to ensure that one citizen gets one vote.

New Zealand also provides its citizens with a unique code.

According to Lott, “Australia has by far the loosest rules. …  a photo ID is required to register to vote” only.

I would be willing to bet that before too long, after witnessing the problems created in the U.S. by lax voter ID requirements, the Australians tighten up their rules.

Most developed countries, Lott says, did not enact emergency voting measures because of the pandemic. Poland was an exception. They allowed universal mail-in ballots. “Poland’s rushed plan played out so poorly it dissuaded other countries from following suit.”

The Democrats’ argument that asking a voter to show ID is racist, as I see it, is itself racist, and I’m surprised that minorities don’t criticize them for it. It implies that minority voters are too dumb and too incapable to obtain an ID. How racist is that?

Asking a voter to prove that they are who they say they are is essential for election integrity. Those who oppose voter ID laws do so only because it opens up the opportunity for voter fraud. I am convinced that the unprecedented expansion of mail-in voting and the loss of accountability that followed, cost former President Donald Trump the presidency.

Democrats often point to the super progressive governments of European countries as something the U.S. should emulate. With the exception of the U.K. which is in the process of passing voter ID legislation, all European governments require voters to show IDs at the ballot box. There’s a reason for that – Europe values secure elections.

Next time a liberal begins criticizing voter ID requirements, show them Lott’s article.

No, Actually Ma’Khia Bryant’s Death Is NOT a Reminder the US Has a Long Way to Go

A widely read CNN op-ed claims that “Ma’Khia Bryant’s death on the day Chauvin was found guilty is a reminder that we have a long way to go.”

As he awaited the Chauvin verdict on Tuesday, University of Texas history professor Peniel Joseph worried that the “U.S. justice system was going to prove, once again, unable to recognize and protect the sanctity of Black life.”

Joseph had been pleasantly surprised by the jury’s decision. But when he later heard that a 16-year-old black girl had been shot by an Ohio police officer shortly before the verdict was announced, the temporary relief he’d felt quickly passed.

The teenager, Ma’Khia Bryant, had tried to stab a girl, and was lunging toward a second girl with a knife in her hand when the officer pulled the trigger.

Joseph writes that “many are openly questioning why this young teenager could not have been subdued with nonlethal force.”

Because given the facts as they have been reported so far, had the officer not acted, Bryant would have plunged a quite large kitchen knife into another girl. So, let’s see, should he have tried to subdue her first? He did offer two verbal warnings. The group of individuals involved in this episode had been unable to deescalate the situation. A member of the group had called the police 12 or more minutes earlier because none of them had been able to subdue her either.

This case has nothing whatsoever to do with race. It has to do with a police officer responding to a call for help because that’s his job. Does Joseph really believe the officer thought, “I’m going to shoot this girl because she’s black?’

Equating Chauvin’s actions to the Ohio police officer’s actions is a reminder that the far left has really gone off the deep end. Mr. Joseph and his ilk are trying to attach Chauvin’s crime to every conservative.

By seeing “systemic racism” everywhere and in everything, and labeling everyone who doesn’t see it as they do as racists, they’ve lost credibility.

It seems that local and state governments care more about property, building and money than people of color. … We need only to point to the outpouring of state and local resources to prevent violence in the event that Chauvin was acquitted. Imagine if the same level of care that Minneapolis officials and law enforcement agencies took in turning the Twin Cities into a military encampment had been directed toward investing in Black communities?

Considering Black Lives Matter members generally react to every perceived slight by burning a building or looting a department store, law enforcement had to be proactive.

While we’re on the subject, doesn’t the professor think that behavior is rather infantile? Does he feel that BLM members are entitled to destroy property because 160 years ago, people none of us knew, thought slavery was a good idea?

Like these people do:

I agree it was a horrendous institution, but sorry, I’m not going to feel any guilt over it.

Next, he addresses the new Georgia voting law. House Judiciary Committee member Burgess Owens, a black Republican from Utah, absolutely destroyed this  talking point on Tuesday. Owens spoke at the “Senate Judiciary Hearing – Jim Crow 2021: The Latest Assault on the Right to Vote.”

Owens grew up in the Deep South and said he has “actually experienced Jim Crow laws” and would “like to set the record straight.” He told colleagues that “any comparison between this law and Jim Crow is absolutely outrageous.”

He said he’d once protested with his friends outside of a movie theater where blacks were not allowed. He spoke about gas stations that had restrooms for white men and white women and then one filthy bathroom in the back for “coloreds.”

“In addition, Jim Crow laws like the poll tax, property tests, literacy tests and violence and intimidation at the polls made it nearly impossible for black Americans to vote.”

He cannot fathom how it’s considered racist to ask for an ID.

“By the way,” he notes, “97% of voters already have a government-issued ID.”

“What I find extremely offensive is the narrative from the left that black people are not smart enough, not educated enough, not desirous enough of education to do what every other culture and race does in this country: Get an ID.”

“True racism is this: this projection of the Democratic Party on my proud race. … It’s called the soft bigotry of low expectations.”

“To call this Jim Crow 2021 is an insult, my friends. … For those who never lived Jim Crow, we are not in Jim Crow.”

Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa told colleagues, “These claims about Georgia aren’t about truth, they’re about politics.”

On the other side of the aisle, Democratic Sen. Patrick Leahy of Vermont said Georgia’s law was “the greatest crisis facing our democracy today.”

Actually Senator, the greatest crisis facing our democracy today is the Democratic Party’s insatiable hunger for power.

Back to Joseph. He spends a lot of time elevating Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters of California and activist Stacey Abrams to rock star status. I’ve addressed Waters’ actions twice in the last week, here and here, and I have nothing more to say on the subject.

Then, mercifully, Joseph concludes, telling readers: “In the meantime, Black people continue to be shot, to be brutalized and to die at the hands of the police.”

He is gaslighting. He knows that blacks kill other blacks multiple times more often than white officers kill blacks. According to Manhattan Institute Fellow Heather MacDonald, one of the smartest conservatives I know, 0.2 percent of black homicides are the result of unarmed black men being shot by police officers.

MacDonald appeared on Newsmax’ Rob Schmitt Tonight show on Tuesday.

After the Chauvin verdict had been announced, President Biden said, we have to get “systemic racism out of policing.” Schmitt asked MacDonald, “What exactly do the numbers say about ‘systemic racism’?

“The numbers say that it does not exist,” she replied. “The police go where the crime is. We have a crime problem in this country. We do not have a police problem. We have been talking about phantom police racism for the last three decades obsessively so as to continue turning our eyes away from the cultural breakdown that you so rightly spoke about Rob.”

“America does not want to confront the disfunction in the inner city black community.” She said that ten percent of white and Hispanic homicide victims are killed by police officers while only three percent of black homicide victims are. “Why,” MacDonald asks. “Because the number of black homicide victims is so huge that it dwarfs anything else. Blacks die of homicide at a rate 13 times that of whites.”

In 2020, MacDonald said there were 18 unarmed blacks killed by police. “Unarmed is defined very liberally, to mean going after an officer’s gun or fleeing in a stolen car with a loaded handgun on the seat next to you. Those 18 unarmed blacks represent 0.2 percent of all blacks who died of homicide last year.”

“The police could end all police shootings and it would have no effect on the black homicide rate. This idea that blacks are being gunned down on a daily basis is an optical illusion,” She explains that this is created by the media which should surprise no one. Watch the whole segment here (starts at 13:30 in the video).

The message from the left is anti-American. It’s disgusting that our president is in on this farce. The left has gone down the rabbit hole.

Call me crazy, but I think it would be difficult to find a country where there are greater opportunities for blacks than in America. I wholeheartedly encourage those who feel life is so unbearable to move. Quite frankly, I’m tired of hearing about their perpetual victimhood.

So professor, I’m going to call BS on your attempt to use Ma’Khia’s death to advance your narrative. America does not have a long way to go.

If you’re truly concerned about the sky high homicide rate among blacks, please start with the inner city black communities.

Over the Top: 100 Corporate Leaders Join Zoom Call to Build Strategy to Fight ‘Restrictive Voter Laws’

I guess we knew it was never really about thirsty voters in hours-long lines. But it is pretty stunning that over 100 corporate leaders joined a Zoom call on Saturday to “brainstorm” on how they can penalize states for requiring voter ID.

All right Captains of Industry, enlighten us. First, did you finally settle upon an acceptable reason why asking voters to show identification before casting their ballot is racist? Because it’s important that you’re all on the same page. And did you decide on what form this punishment will take?

CBS News’ Ed O’Keefe reported on this astonishing phone call today on “CBS This Morning.”

Before turning it over to O’Keefe, the show’s host said, “In a first of it’s kind gathering, more than a hundred leaders from some of the most powerful companies met virtually on Saturday to talk about efforts by Republicans nationwide to overhaul voting laws. All this comes after a bill passed in Georgia led to allegations of racism and threats of retaliation against companies that oppose it.”

“Threats of retaliation against companies that oppose it?” Did that come out of nowhere? Oh, he must mean the decision by many Republicans to boycott Major League Baseball after its commissioner pulled the All-Star Game out of Atlanta over the law. And the big three airlines, who came out like dominos last week to denounce the Georgia State Legislature for passing the bill.

Anyway, O’Keefe told viewers: “The high-powered Zoom meeting signals a larger move among U.S. companies to oppose voter suppression and signals they won’t fear reprisals by politicians or others when speaking out. It’s something we haven’t seen of this magnitude to date. Attendees included top bosses from WalMart, United Airlines, LinkedIn and AMC Theatres, with some CEOs even chiming in from Augusta, Georgia, the site of the Master’s Golf tournament. The head of our parent company, Viacom CBS, also attended. …”

“The nonpartisan Brennan Center, which tracks proposals across the country today, found lawmakers in 24 states are moving at least 55 bills through state legislatures that would restrict voting access.”

“Keep in mind, many of these bills are based on the lie that the presidential election was stolen. The executives discussed several ways to respond to these restrictive bills including cutting donations to politicians who support them and holding off on investments in those states.” O’Keefe said.

“The meeting came together extraordinarily fast,” he noted. “Organizers tell us they invited 120 CEOs with about 50 hours notice and 90 of them opted to attend. The next test of the voting rights debate will be in Texas where legislators are going to be considering two proposals that observers might ultimately go farther than the new Georgia law.”

This Zoom call signals a new and more dangerous phase in the Democrats war on America. The left is actively organizing against Republicans to throttle us into submission.

O’Keefe made several false and/or uninformed statements.

First, the Brennan Center is one of America’s most far-left think tanks.

Next, the refusal of judges and elections officials to even hear any of the evidence doesn’t mean the election was not stolen.

I would ask what Washington, D.C. attorney Marc Elias, who commissioned the Steele dossier on behalf of the Hillary Clinton campaign and the DNC in 2016, is currently doing in Arizona. The Arizona state Senate was poised to begin an in-depth ballot by ballot audit of the results in Maricopa County, which accounts for nearly two-thirds of the votes in the state. Elias, backed by the Democratic machine is trying to prevent it from happening.

As for “holding off on investments in those states,” at a certain point, CEOs need to remember they are charged with maximizing shareholder value. Shareholders will quickly become angry, for example, by a CEO’s political decision to avoiding doing business in, say Texas, opting instead for a less business-friendly state, whose only attraction is that they don’t require voter ID, and will quickly force them out of a job.

It’s an unwise strategy for many reasons. These business leaders are forcing Americans to pick a side. Considering that voter ID laws are supported by over 70 percent of Americans, it will be an uphill battle.

People know why Democrats oppose voting reform. Because it handed victory to the pathetic, feeble politician who now occupies the White House. Even in his heyday, he never gained any traction in either of the presidential primaries he participated in. He never even made it into the top tier of candidates. In 1988, Biden was pressured to withdraw from the race after he’d been accused of plagiarizing a speech by Neil Kinnock, then-leader of the British Labour Party. It was also reported at the time that he had been accused of plagiarism while a student at the Syracuse University School of Law in the 1960s.

Few, if any, have ever regarded Biden as a strong leader. He was a gaffe-prone buffoon who had simply remained in Washington for so long that people grew used to him, comfortable with him.

His 2020 candidacy was on life support after coming in fifth in the New Hampshire primary. Fortunately for him, the Democrat machine decided that the socialist senator from Vermont, Bernie Sanders, could not lead the ticket and went into high gear.

The explosion in mail-in voting afforded by the pandemic and the lax standards of verifying ballots and I believe, the outright fraud committed by Democratic elections officials, and even some Republicans, delivered the White House to Biden.

Democrats know there is no valid reason to oppose voter ID requirements. It doesn’t matter that voting in some states is the only thing that can be done without an ID today in America.

But they also know that their ostensible reason doesn’t matter. However ludicrous it is, politicians will keep repeating it, Democratic PACs, think tanks and the media will repeat it and now it appears that corporate CEOs have hopped aboard the train.

I don’t see how this fight can end well for them.

United Airlines’ Diversity Pledge: ‘50% of the 5,000 pilots we train in the next decade to be women or people of color’

Who’s the wokest of them all? United Airlines believes “Our flight deck should reflect the diverse group of people on board our planes every day. That’s why we plan for 50% of the 5,000 pilots we train in the next decade to be women or people of color.”

Last week, Delta Airlines’ CEO Ed Bastien denounced Georgia over their recently passed voter reform legislation. On Saturday, America Airlines followed suit by announcing their opposition to similar legislation proposed in Texas.

United Airlines was the last of the big three to weigh in. On Monday, the airline released a statement which read:

Some have questioned the integrity of the nation’s election systems and are using it to justify stricter voting procedures, even though numerous studies have found zero credible evidence of widespread fraud in U.S. elections.

Legislation that infringes on the right to vote of fellow Americans is wrong. We believe that leaders in both parties should work to protect the rights of eligible voters by making it easier and more convenient for them to cast a ballot and have it counted.

On Tuesday, the company took it a bit further with a diversity pledge.

Today, United has one of the most diverse pilot populations of any U.S. carrier with nearly 20% of our pilot group made up of women and people of color. We are working toward raising that number even higher by partnering with diversity-led organizations and continuing to remove gender and racial barriers. And we’re going one step further with plans for 50% of United Aviate Academy students being women and people of color to ensure our students reflect the diversity of the customers and communities we serve.

United announces they are continuing to remove gender and racial barriers. Yet, that is precisely what they are doing by putting quotas in place to guide their hiring decisions.

Considering that the safety of millions of passengers is at stake, why not be colorblind when making your hiring decisions? Why not choose your pilots on the basis of competence, experience and training rather than on gender and race?

A novel concept for the wokest among us, I know. But perhaps best from a safety point of view.

Biden’s Dementia Aside, We Really Have to Question The Wisdom of a President Who Singles Out an Entire State

I was surprised that a U.S. president would even suggest that MLB commissioner Rob Manfred pull the All-Star Game out of Atlanta. But I was gobsmacked when he opened the door to moving the Masters out of Georgia and then went on to cite the state’s new Jim Crow laws in his response. What do we make of a president who singles out an entire state?

Even before dementia began taking its toll on Joe Biden, he was never what one might consider a smart man. Nor was he ever a particularly honest man. But the ease with which he has embraced the radical left’s agenda is stunning.

On Tuesday, a reporter asked, “Mr. President, do you think the Masters golf tournament should be moved out of Georgia?”

“I think that’s up to the Masters. … It is reassuring to see for profit operations and businesses are speaking up about how these new Jim Crow laws are just antithetical to who we are. … The best way to deal with this is for Georgia and other states to smarten up. Stop it. Stop it.”

Um. Didn’t The Washington Post just give him Four Pinocchios for these precise comments last week?

Biden is well aware that he owes his victory to the explosion in mail-in voting and the lax oversight of absentee ballots in November. We get that he’s trying to discourage other states from strengthening their voter ID requirements, but he’s the President of the United States. And he’s lying through his teeth.

He has singled out the state of Georgia. A state in which top Republican officials, including anti-Trumpers Gov. Brian Kemp and Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, were key to his victory.

Biden’s remarks influenced the decision of the MLB commissioner to pull the All-Star Game out of Atlanta, a city which has a black population of over 50 percent. As a result, the city will lose approximately $100 million in expected revenue.

The game will now be played in Denver, Colorado, which has a black population of 9 percent. The state also requires voter ID.

The candidate who campaigned on uniting the country after “the divisiveness” of the Trump Administration, has become the most divisive president we’ve ever had.

But, from the President to the MLB commissioner, they all keep spouting the lies.

What is new (sort of) is that we’re seeing corporations joining the fray. Last week, Delta, American and United Airlines all condemned Georgia for passing election reform legislation.

University of Tennessee professor Glenn Reynolds, better known to conservatives as “Instapundit,” appeared on Fox News’ “Primetime” on Tuesday to make some sense of this.

Host Mark Steyn asked Reynolds, “Why has the business world suddenly turned super Bernie Sanders, AOC left?”

Reynolds explains: “The thing you have to understand first is none of this has anything to do with justice or fairness or concern for the well-being of black people or anyone else. It’s all about power.  Woke politics is the state religion of the corporate oligarchs now and they use it to enhance their own power and to suppress their opponents. That’s all it’s about. Everything else is noise. And that’s why it doesn’t make sense, because it’s not meant to make sense. It’s just meant to procure compliance. They hope you’ll just be afraid.”

“How do you push back against it? If you’ve got American, United and Delta all going woke, what do you do? Boycott them and take the Greyhound?” asked Steyn.

“Honestly, you should do what the left does which is you make life unpleasant for their CEOs and other corporate officers. Don’t waste your time with economic boycotts. Send buses full of protestors to the CEO’s house and go to their shareholder meetings and make a big stink and you generally do stuff that reduces their quality of life. The left has done this and it’s worked for them. I think the right is starting to do that and Republican governors are starting to really push back on this in a formidable way for the first time really,” Reynolds said.

In short, we need to start using their tactics against them. We can make a difference. We already have.

Watch: Fox Reporter Grills Psaki on Georgia Voting Law, Responds by Doubling Down on Lies

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki is a terrible liar.

During last week’s press conference, President Joe Biden was asked about efforts by numerous state legislatures to pass voting reform bills intended to prevent the widespread “irregularities” that have led so many of us to question the results.

“What I’m worried about is how un-American this whole initiative is. It’s sick. It’s sick … deciding that you’re going to end voting at five o’clock when working people are just getting off work,” replied the President.

The next day, Biden attacked Georgia’s new legislation again in a statement which said, “Among the outrageous parts of this new state law, it ends voting hours early so working people can’t cast their vote after their shift is over.”

A fact check of these obviously false remarks performed by The Washington Post earned the President “Four Pinocchios.”

At Thursday’s White House briefing, Fox Business News reporter Ed Lawrence summarized what Georgia’s new voting law actually requires and asked Psaki, “Is there going to be a correction? … Is the tone going to change out of the White House?”

She repeated the lies that Biden had just been publicly rebuked for and added, “The tone for a bill that limits voting access? That makes it more difficult for people to engage in voting in Georgia?”

Lawrence pushed back. “No, that’s actually not what the governor of Georgia has said.”

“Well, I think that is not based in fact, what the governor of Georgia has said,” Psaki replied. “So, no, our tone is not changing. We have concerns about the specific components of the package including the fact that it makes it harder and more difficult to vote by limiting absentee options, by making it not viable, not possible for people to provide water to people who are in line, by not standardizing longer hours, so if you’re making it harder to vote, no we don’t support that.”

The only item on Psaki’s list the left is truly upset about are the limitations on absentee ballots, because the explosion in mail-in voting (arguably) handed Biden the White House.

The “Election Integrity Act of 2021,” as the new Georgia law is called, requires applicants for absentee ballots to provide their state ID number. The state offers a free ID Card to those who cannot afford one. In order to verify their ballots, voters will be required to provide either their state ID number or the last four digits of their Social Security number.

This measure will go a long way to ensuring election integrity, something that was sorely lacking last November.

In the following clip, conservative commentator Ben Shapiro, in his inimitable style, eviscerates an article written by liberal Jemelle Hill in The Atlantic in which she attacks Georgia’s new law as voter suppression. She runs through all of the Democrats’ talking points and Shapiro expertly bats each one down.

“‘Jim Crow explicitly created a separate system of law for black Americans and treated them as inferior.’ There’s nothing in the law like that. That’s not only an overstatement. It’s an outright lie.

But, says Jemelle Hill … ‘The law imposes new voter identification requirements for absentee ballots.’ Well, clearly that’s racist. I mean you really have to show that you are who you say you are when you vote absentee? If you can explain to me how that’s racist, I’m willing to hear it. Anyone? Bueller? Bueller?

‘It limits the use of ballot drop boxes.’ Oh, you mean like ballot drop boxes where people could just stuff the ballot box or take ballots out of the ballot box?

‘It hands the state officials more power over local elections. Even before the legislation passed, many voters of color in Georgia faced hours long queues at the polls.’ By the way, voter suppression doesn’t involve long lines, any more than long lines at Disneyland are ride suppression. You know what voter suppression is? Voter suppression is where you don’t get to vote.

‘Making those waits even more arduous, the new law makes giving food and water to people in line to vote.’ That’s not even true. It bans giving any gift to people in line when they are within 150 feet of the polling place. You can bring water with you, there are people outside who can give you water. It’s just not true.”

Biden, Psaki, Hill and the rest know what they are saying is false. They also know that the new law will address many of the problems encountered in November with duplicate voting, dead or otherwise ineligible voters, and custody issues; in other words, much of the chicanery that went unchecked in November.

Democrats oppose anything having to do with election integrity. They do not want secure elections. And they will lie about whatever they need to, to advance their agenda.
