Eric is at it again upping the anti at the (CNBC) Conference of National Black Churches by misrepresenting current voter ID laws enacted by 32 states. The Attorney General acting as President Barak Obama's affirmative action mouth piece presented the administrations anti-white liberal agenda as he addressed the (CNBC) on Wednesday 05/30/12. As the keynote speaker Mr Holder presented his case of Republican racial bias to a room half full of black clergy. Mr holder made a point of linking the CNBC with the (CBC) Congressional Black Caucus who sponsored the event clearly entwining church and state into a rope tied directly to the Obama Administration.
Checking the web web site for the CBC you will find a page dedicated to the CNBC a religious organization of large profitable churches. This is a clear attempt to politicize the black churches and empower the pastors and by encouraging them to be political activists. These black political leaders are their for one ultimate purpose to reelect Barak Obama. One Black politician after an other stood up denouncing white establishment politicians and encouraging these religious leaders to turn their pulpits into bully pulpits on behalf of Barack Obama.
The issue that is being addressed in this “call to action” is the voter ID. Laws that have been enacted in 32 states. AG Holder and the Justice Department has sued many of these states clamming that their ID laws are in violation of the Voting Rights Act specifically section 2 and section 5.
Section 2 contains a general prohibition on voting discrimination, enforced through federal district court litigation. Section 2 prohibits any voting practice or procedure that has a discriminatory result. A 1982 amendment to section 2 provided that proof of intentional discrimination is not required. The provision focused instead on whether the electoral processes are equally accessible to minority voters.
Section 5 of the Act requires that the United States Department of Justice, through an administrative procedure, or a three-judge panel of the United States District Court for the District of Columbia, "pre-clear" any attempt to change “any voting qualification or prerequisite to voting, or standard, practice, or procedure with respect to voting..." in any "covered jurisdiction." The United States Attorney General or the United States District Court for the District of Columbia, must demonstrate that a proposed voting change does not discriminat based on race or color or in some cases, a "language group." Membership in a language minority group includes "persons who are American Indian, Asian American, Alaskan Natives or of Spanish heritage." The burden of proof under current Section 5 jurisprudence is on the covered jurisdiction to establish that the proposed change does not have a retrogressive purpose.
AG Holder's position has been that voter ID laws being enacted are discriminatory based on the fact that Spanish speaking people are unable to obtain a state photo ID or that it is to difficult. Therefore the premiss for this conference is completely false. The membership of the CBC one by one browbeat the black preachers into submission by propagandizing that these laws are as Maxine Waters put it “The worst laws since Jim Crow” or in the words of Sheila Jackson Lee “A twenty first century poll tax” is appalling and insulting to the erudite members of the black clergy in attendance.
As far these voter ID laws being discriminatory, AG Holder is 100% right. The states that are enacting these laws are being intentionally discriminatory, and the discrimination is also targeted to a specific minority group. However none of them were represented at the conference that AG Holder addressed on May 30th, unless they were illegal aliens. The voter ID laws are simply meant to strengthen the electoral process not to hinder any eligible citizen from voting. But this subject was never broached by the AG he intentionally mislead the audience by inferring that these laws targeted Black people by offering examples such as. “Yes, we have walked far on the long road toward freedom – but we have not yet reached the Promised Land. And, in too many places, it’s painfully clear that our nation’s long struggle to overcome injustice, to eliminate disparities, to bridge long-standing divisions, to eradicate violence, and to uphold the civil rights of all citizens has not yet ended.” AG Holder puncuated that statement by ading this.“That means it is time, once again, to ask Dr. King’s most famous and enduring question: Where do we go from here?”
After making statements like that what are these people going to think? AG Holder also used the Texas redistricting plan as an example of racism, he was suggesting that there is a deliberate attempt to minimize the black vote by combining dissimilar geographical arias. The fact is that the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Texas ordered the redistricting to be in compliance with the US Constitution and not because of racial animist. AG Holder in an attempt to deliberately mislead his audience he left out the reason why certain districts are being redrawn and that it is due to 2010 census data. In an attempt to accurately represent the nations population every 10 years a national census is undertaken so as to measure the ebb and flow of the population in order to give all citizens equal representation in Washington DC.
On CBC's web site a page was created and dedicated to advertising the Voting Rights Summit. On this page the CBC touts the fact that Attorney General Holder will be giving the keynote address and offers these comments about the summit.
“The attack on voting rights is not only coordinated, it is dangerous and it is the worst we’ve seen since Jim Crow. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. called voting the ‘foundation stone for political action.’ The laws restricting access significantly chip away from that stone”, said Chairman Emanuel Cleaver. “Given the immense challenge before us, the CBC has decided to take this matter into our own hands and this time we are working with the Black Church, which has diligently served our community for over 200 years fighting for freedom, justice, and equality when African Americans had nowhere else to turn”.
AG Holder has doubled down on failed programs such as third party registration and the National Voter Registration Act aka the "Motor Voter" law. AG Holder's remarks,
“We also will continue working to enforce provisions like the “Motor Voter” law – and, to that end, have recently filed two lawsuits to increase access to registration opportunities. In one of those cases, we reached a settlement with the State of Rhode Island that resulted in more voters being registered in the first full month after our lawsuit than in the entire previous two-year period.”
“In addition to these and other efforts to ensure access to the ballot box, we’re also working to uphold the integrity of our elections systems. And, on this front, I want to be clear that no form of electoral fraud ever has been – or ever will be – tolerated by the United States government.”
If these statements are sincere and truthful then why has AG Holder not recognized the rampant fraud associated with Motor Voter or the fact that (Acorn) The Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, had 400,000 fraudulent and duplicate voter registration forms submitted prior to the 2008 elections. This was due to the fact that the registrars were collecting a commission for every 21 applications submitted, the program was called Blackjack.
These are not the only glaring examples of hypocrisy in AG Holders remarks. The AG made reference to the civil rights movement in the south when blacks where persecuted by saying.
“Our efforts honor the generations who have taken extraordinary risks, and willingly confronted hatred, bias, and ignorance – as well as billy clubs and fire hoses, bullets and bombs – to ensure that their children, and all citizens, would have the chance to participate in the work of their government.”
It is doubtful that the Attorney General has played his last race card in the poker game we call the Obama Election Campaign. And events such as the Congressional Black Caucus sponsored Faith Leaders Summit for the Conference of National Black Churches only proves how desperate President Obama is. Sooner or later The Ace and King of spades will go all in and the excrement will hit the oscillating device.
