How H.R. 4 Would Let Leftist Extremists At The DOJ Control The Entire Nation’s Elections; H.R. 4: The Guest That Just Won't Leave the Party

How H.R. 4 Would Let Leftist Extremists At The DOJ Control The Entire Nation’s Elections:
Forcing states to run election rules by the Voting Section of the Civil Rights Division is like giving that power to the Democratic National Committee.
Why are Democrats in Congress staging a series of show hearings to generate support for H.R. 4, “The John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act”? Because, they claim, there is a wave of “voter suppression” going on across the country.
That is nothing more than a political fabrication. Requiring voters to show ID to authenticate their identity, or trying to ensure voter registration rolls are accurate and up-to-date, are not “voter suppression” and don’t prevent any eligible individual from registering and voting.
H.R. 4 isn’t just unnecessary and unjustified. It’s a dangerous bill that would give the partisan bureaucrats of the Voting Section of the Civil Rights Division of the U.S. Justice Department administrative veto powers over states’ changes to election procedures.
As Cleta Mitchell noted in The Federalist earlier this month, H.R. 4 is “even more insidious” than its cousin, H.R. 1, precisely because “it would enable the vastly well-funded Democrat ‘voting rights’ apparatus to control American elections.” This control would extend over states’ election integrity measures like voter ID (even if passed by ballot referenda approved by all of the voters of a state).
These left-wing ideologues are hostile to the equal, non-partisan enforcement of federal voting rights laws. They are a threat to each state’s constitutional power to control its own election procedures and have repeatedly exhibited their biased attitudes over the course of decades. --->READ MORE HERE
H.R. 4: The Guest That Just Won't Leave the Party:
What's the likelihood it passes, and what are the consequences of the left's attempted election takeover?
Remember H.R. 1 or S. 1, the so-called “For the People Act?” We’ve done several episodes about it here on Explains where we’ve talked about how, if passed, it would fundamentally change America by letting D.C. control our elections instead of the states. Since our last episode, Democrat Sen. Joe Manchin from West Virginia actually wrote an op-ed digging his heels in, and rejected H.R. 1/S. 1. Or did he? Have you heard of H.R. 4? It's been described as the "backdoor" to the "For the People Act." The problem is that it might be worse. This week, we discuss the differences between H.R. 1 and H.R. 4, the state of play, and all that is at stake.
Tim Doescher: From The Heritage Foundation, I'm Tim Doescher, and this is Heritage Explains. I'm not a huge fan of hosting parties. However, if I set my mind to it, I've been known to throw a mean party every now and then, real ragers. Now, as a host, I have control of a lot of things: what time it starts, the food, the beverages, the entertainment, et cetera, et cetera. But one thing that's harder to enforce is when people leave. Even if you give an end time to the party, it's one logistic that just seems inherently flexible. A lot of the time, guests stay too long. Why? It's easy to invite people to come, but it's really tough to ask them to leave.
Doescher: But this isn't an episode about hosting parties. This is an episode about an issue in D.C. that doesn't seem to want to leave the party. Remember H.R. 1, or S. 1, the so-called for the people act? We've done several episodes about it here on Explains, where we've talked about how if passed, this law would fundamentally change America, by letting DC control our elections instead of states, and destroying things like donor confidentiality. Well, since our last episode on this, Democrat Senator, Joe Manchin from West Virginia, actually wrote an op-ed digging his heels in and rejected his party's bill. Or did he?
Nancy Pelosi: I don't give up on Joe Manchin. I've read the op-ed, and you read a part of it. I think he left the door open. I think it's ajar. I'm not giving it up.
Dana Bash: Well, and I wanted to ask you about that, because you're not just reading an op-ed, you have a relationship with him. Is there something that you know that we don't know, or a lot of people in your caucus were really upset don't know about Joe Manchin and the possibility of getting this election reform-  --->READ MORE or LISTEN HERE
