The ACLJ is filing a critical brief in Georgia to protect the integrity of our elections representing already seven members of Congress and talk about it today you informed and now is what I hear from you Sharon post, call 1-800-684-3110 secular secular if you heard that open over for members of Congress. The reason why say this, they had been our director of government affairs. None of the broadcast today because were still working up until the moment we file this lawsuit, which will be filed today that the brief we filed in support of the state of Georgia against this the lawsuit. The challenges to the voting law in Georgia. This is a gigabyte administration bringing the lawsuit through the Department of Justice represent 57 members of the House of Representatives, including all of the Republicans from Georgia, so the entire Republican delegation from Georgia and the House of Representatives course they don't have any in the Senate right now represented by the ACLJ but that's along with 57 total members of Congress that number likely go up by at least a few we got members of the leadership of Steve Scalise comes from stiff neck as well. So I did. This is, I get it just shows you that the ability the ACLJ to organize it.

We looked at it, we literally have representation for members of Congress from coast-to-coast from the reddest of red states to the bluest of blue states were Republican still get elected add that and there on board with us because this is being filed today.

It is to protect again the integrity of the election.

We don't want to see. I think most people of this country both sides. The out there. Being honest don't want to see 20/20. Again, where the outcome of the election is in question, and people have faith in the process we want to make sure it voter integrity is restored so that whatever happens on election day, win or lose your candidate wins or loses you feel like you know that it was fair that you were being fair and square. That's that that's the kind of quick process of healing in America. What doesn't work is the months of uncertainty which we saw out of out of the last election cycle and I think we are to be ready for it again because we start see the grouchy types go on TV and say this is going to get worse than we've ever seen. And when they say that month before school goes back and we get back it will fall if they can have this repeating pay kind of crisis feeling. I think that the Democrats think that benefits them because the laws go out the window may look at what's been challenged so that did Georgia put a prohibition on government entities mailing unsolicited, unsolicited, absentee ballot applications. In other words, the government isn't just to send out an absentee ballot because I've use absentee ballots before and you have to fill out an affidavit, but Georgia now is saying. Like most states, by the way, unsolicited, absentee ballots will not be sent out. That's just one that's being challenged Andy by the United States Department of Justice. This is federal power grab giant that's nothing short of that, the Constitution of the United States. We know given the time, place, manner and method of electing to the states. That's what the stakes are supposed to do.

The state of Georgia. In enacting this bill is really trying to establish election integrity and one of the things that you do and you establish election integrity.

Among the other things that the statute provides for is that if you don't solicit the bad faith. The ballot is being solicited by nongovernmental entity, it doesn't count. I voted absentee.

You have voted absentee. We asked for the ballot. We verify we give identification.

We swear doing, we send the ballot in. I don't see anything wrong with that process. Again, this is a fight. These these fights and certainly worth fighting for, which is one. The ability for the states to do with the Constitution gives the parody which is to set the rules of the game to set them up to make them clear so that everybody was running for office knows what the rules are what you can and can't do, how to move forward. How are going to proceed and vernacular do that happen this haphazard kind of throwing things together and election cycle suffered at the drop boxes to be official and campers on were given no happy not to worry about the situation for worry about fraudulent to worry about his uncertainty that they created lots lots of problems I this is a way to solve that and move forwards. Why we supported the ACLJ we do something about it, representing 57 members of Congress as we speak I think will be more than that right back on secular the American Center for Law and Justice were engaged in use at home and abroad. Whether it's defending religious freedom. Protecting those who are persecuted for their faith. Uncovering corruption in the Washington bureaucracy fighting to protect life saving Congress ACLJ would not be able to do any of this without your support for that.

We are grateful. Now there's an opportunity for you to help me way for limited time you can participate in the ACLJ's matching challenge every dollar you donate $10 gift becomes 20 oh $50 gift becomes 100. This is a critical time for the ACLJ. The work we do. Simply would not occur without your generous take part in our matching challenge today make a difference in the protecting the constitutional and religious freedoms you forgive today online ACLJ only one. A society can agree that the most vulnerable invoice. Is there any hope for that culture to survive. And that's exactly what you are saying when you stand with the American Center for Law and Justice, defendant the right to life, we've created a free powerful publication offering a panoramic view of the ACLJ's battle for the unborn Gold edition like it will show you how you are personally and publication includes a look at all major ACLJ cases were fighting for the rights of pro-life activist the ramifications of Roe V Wade, 40 years later Planned Parenthood's role in the what Obama care means to the pro-life in many ways your membership in the ACLJ is empowering the right question free copy of mission in life today online ACL data/ACLJ's opposition here filing a brief rep that 57 there was a counter should be able see that later today when it's filed have it up@aclj.org. You go through and see that list but it really is a coast-to-coast list includes all Republican House members from Georgia itself. This is Congress saying this is not our role. This is not the federal government's job. This should be the state. The state legislature, not us, not DOJ but Georgia state legislature have the Department of Justice has completely misinterpreted the United States Constitution first election closet and he said earlier of the Constitution gives the state legislatures. The role of power with broad authority to regulate the time, place and manner of elections that's in the Constitution election clause also gives Congress, not the executive branch, not the FBI, not the Department of Justice type reports the authority to override a state law.

If the state law is in violation of other constitutional principles. So, Harry Hutchison, our Dir. policy list. Let's look at this from a policy perspective, here is what Georgia put in place in their law a prohibition on government entities, mailing, unsolicited, absentee ballot applications. Modification of the identification requirement because actually it did not show voter ID and timeframe for applying for the back absentee ballots regulating the use of the ballot dropbox. As Jordan said, so look at that and tell me why is any of that unconstitutional while it is not, and it clearly is not, and I would argue that the Democrats who are suing the state of Georgia. They know what so what they have done is that they have woven tail fantasy. Why because they dislike any law that increases voter integrity and voter security because they believe that that this favors Democrats. So at the end of the day the Biden administration is prepared to suit taxes. This report prepared to sue Georgia. Even though both states.

If you look at the proposals they would provide greater voter access than most blue states do today, including the state of Delaware. So at the end of the day. We have VP Harris. She is now on record claiming that rural voters they are harmed by voter ID laws. Why because they can't find a Kinko's, they can't photocopy so what it are we saying we are saying that the Democrats at the end of the day. Sorry to use this metaphor again and again they believe in elite condescension that he believed that anything that improves in election integrity is unconstitutional.

They have no grounds for that claim was this lawsuit is really the culmination of months and months of lies and half-truths by the President of the states by Stacy Abrams by the left-wing media and others I'll give an example of that is new Georgia law actually allows actually requires Saturday and Sunday early voting, which the something that many states do not have including President buying something Delaware.

But what they did on this on the Saturday Sunday early voting in the Georgia law says you have to be open from 9 to 5 normal burning. I think a 77 to the week. What Pres. Biden comes out to so there limiting the hours are shortening from 7 to 7 to 9 to 5 failing to mention that those new hours for expanded voting on Saturday and Sunday.

The week is still 77 and local counties can even extended past that deadline. In the evening up there a lot of people lined up. They don't mention that. So whenever I think is worth repeating.

Understand that they just increase the days of early bonus absolutely and so they latched onto the 9 to 5 on Saturday, Sunday and settle well the restricting when in fact they added two more days to early voting. That's the kind of lies and half-truths are being promulgated. This is a move toward you said earlier, this is a movement that looked it work for less time. Yes, it did work for the last time it was to try to scuttle these laws called racist but also I think what they like last time was the head of the years, throw it together that work better for Democrats went with the laws were clear and the laws word kind of written down and so everybody's kind of doing by county by county and you had that had state legislature say well will let the county registrars are whoever decide how they should move forward in their county and of course none of that, though, that worked. So you had people say their county list was rejected. But another county. This was accepted and that's because there was this that the credit throughout the law.

Yet this last lifecycle I Democrats it will be like that that helped us we had to put out ballots to whoever we wanted to. And now the idea is that you don't mail a ballot to everybody in the country. On every address you have your racist by not hit you out delivering the ballot to the not not the request but the actual ballot itself. Georgia put in the law there is no excuse mail out the mail and voting or be absentee or heavy workout to come up with the reasons that was only jury duty. You could get that the mailing ballot very easily, but you do have to take a step to request it so that they're not as we saw last time mailing out live ballots to people I don't know if they're there anymore. The people there were there anymore any people got an early ballot. They also could've voted.

It was no light voter ID verifications so look, here's what I am saying I as I look at the situation in Georgia.

Obviously, in a good despite what people are saying Stacy Abrams was very successful in both her application of challenging Georgia enter voter registration issues. So now what George is coming back. This isn't the innovate within the clip we played earlier. There's this talk that this is you know Stacy Abrams gets what she wants while she was able to because there was no real challenges to the stop estate consented to these orders Republican yet Republicans consented to the order so that's really a little disingenuous for them to be complaining about that one sense, on the other hand, if you look at it from a legal standpoint here brought about. If you look at the law. What does the law require a state has the constitutional authority to put in basic voter integrity measures and that's all this is that's exactly correct and Harry Hutchison again very tersely incorrectly and succinctly stated as he always does wear here to ensure election security and integrity that those two goals are left by the Constitution to the states. That's the unknot unclear you read the Constitution.

You see that and if there's going to be any change because of discrimination or animus based upon race or some suspect classification that is Congress's responsibility to do and it is not the executive branch's responsibility, nor the federal courts and what this simply does this Georgia law.

This very comprehensive and I think very constitutive constitutional Georgia law does is it creates a situation where we do not and cannot hopefully have a repeat of 2020. Gordon has said this before, we don't want a repeat of 2020.

The legislature sat down and said let's figure out where the problems were.

That's correct.

Those absent the balance mail and balance voter identification, things of that nature and the legislature using its constitutional power under the United States Constitution enacted this comprehensive law and I think that it should stand constitutional scrutiny and the same goes not only for the ACLJ but for 57 the members of Congress, including the entire Georgia Republican House delegation led, I must say in a dip of the hat to Congressman Rick Allen who really spearheaded this in Georgia and other Congressman who signed on the question of course is that the using the voting rights act.

As the basis upon which the Department of Justice says Georgia violated the law here that's what they're basing this on. They are, but the subtext is that they are claiming that voter integrity laws are essentially racist inventions but it's important to note that 80% of African-American voters support voter ID laws. It's also important to note that a majority of voters both Democrat and Republican support voter ID laws and thirdly, it's important to note that voter ID laws are's supported by something called common sense but it's clear. Also, beyond question that the Democrats they reject common sense. They reject anything that inhibits their ability to win free and fair elections going forward.

So rather than having a contest between all that is decided by all legal voters. The Democrats want to decide to expand the voter role to individuals who are not even citizens of the United States. One of the concerns I have drawn there was any way these cases go with Georgia wins.

We think that we win the case.

This becomes our talking point though than for their pet court packing plant sure this is a light like the other me a major case of touch with the life case the direct challenge to Roe versus Wade. This these would be the two I think you could buy those to that that the election laws and the life issue and that they pay they would try to make the glisten that court packing could be a private endless cycle of partisan politics become sore courts. It would throw out that the get any any sense. If the court is independent would be gone because the next group and come in they try to rewrite for additive removed Jess's buddy. I would like to have appointments what takes a while to get away and it is to go back. It would be. We have nine I do not number it works gives a big city get age variation difference in a difference of opinion and you get time on the bench and no reason to do that but you don't back down from these fights because of what they think might threaten to do because so far, they've been able to do that. That's been like a wish list item, let's fight for what's right will be right back. Second, only one. A society can agree that the most vulnerable invoice is protected. Is there any hope for that culture to survive. And that's exactly what you are saying when you stand with the American Center for Law and Justice, defendant the right to life, we've created a free and powerful publication offering a panoramic view of the ACLJ's battle for the unborn Gold edition life will show you how you are personally support the publication includes a look at all major ACLJ pro-life cases were fighting for the rights of pro-life activist ramifications of Roe V Wade, 40 years later Planned Parenthood's role in the abortion industry and what Obama care means to the prone life in many ways your membership in the ACLJ is empowering the right question free copy of mission in life today online ACLJ/the American Center for Law and Justice were engaged in critical issues at home and abroad. Whether it's defending religious freedom.

Protecting those who are persecuted for their faith.

Uncovering corruption in the Washington bureaucracy fighting to protect life in the courts and in Congress. ACLJ would not be able to do any of this without your support for that. We are grateful. Now there's an opportunity for you to help me way for limited time you can participate in the ACLJ's matching challenge for every dollar you donate $10 gift becomes 20 oh $50 gift becomes 100.

This is a critical time for the ACLJ. The work we do.

Simply would not occur without your generous take part in our matching challenge today and make a difference in protecting the constitutional and religious freedoms most important to you beautiful gift today online ACLJ's example I had to fight the extreme Evenson New York Times opinion piece yet there's no good reason you should have to be a citizen to vote.

Read that again think I did.

There is no good reason. You have to be a citizen to vote in the United States of America yet either the pieces that you illegal residents should be able to vote. This sometimes hear people that have legal residency don't want to be citizens. There's reasons why that there there they are, put them selves the position they do others. Yes, they are waiting to be senses with AR you will get to vote, but there's a process I be the idea. This would this is the idea of the Chaos theory versus because I was determined that your stress for green cards they don't like asking Friday's.

So how would we know who is a legal resident under their view is a type they don't want to see 90 and receipt certificate require people to do that you require.

People bring green cards to give up.

Of course this is the absurdity even have the discussion that a noncitizen could vote. That's where they want to push it though because her saying the elections are legitimate because they don't reflect who's actually the country that that's it again so they realize that these laws are to hurt them. They know there's a Republican wave company likely the house. Seven.

These are bright lights. What happens if you look through history so there there coming up with ways to figure out around that they saw in 2020 2061 way and 2021 way to do that is if if you soak the Chaos theory, they were able to use that to their advantage. This would be another example extreme example, but pushing this agenda that were bad people because we don't allow go to the CRT because all that stuff.

This is the most is it would allow people who are here working to vote, even if they are not citizens, not citizens were bad this is. This is no country would allow this. So why would we a constant personal query, constitutional Republic, a representative government represent all the people. What are those people.

The people that are the citizens of the United States of America people to just happen to be here.

What's your next meet you on vacation for two weeks to get the boat yet remain United States and you know what what citizenship doesn't matter, but here I go back to the basics of this lawsuit, Georgia past clarification a clarification statute. They said you know what when I can just mail out absentee ballots which I get which which is absurd when you think about people requested and there's it's very liberal and how you can get it unit that I would be in such and such. I will be able to do this question you're going to get it. But you have to request it to me.

That is just fundamental fairness, absolutist, common sense, but what were looking at here is political expediency on the part of the Democratic Party you know and what the Georgia laws attempting to do, along with about 16 or 18 other states is rain in the Chaos from the last election, but the chaos worked in favor of the Democrats and so right now therefore Chaos.

I think what I find really really offensive. Also, J is when Pres. Biden talked about this being a Jim Crow allowing Jim Crow to point out accusations of racism when racism does not exist lessens the impact of real racism which is out there right and is an insult in a disservice to people who face real racism for him to come out this guy who's been in Congress get out your 37 years. He knows about Jim Crow laws. He knows what the Jim Crow laws really are and to bring in racism and to accuse us of being Jim Craig Jim Crow knowing knowing how horrible that period was in our history is an insult to people who still face racism adheres to hear the political reality.

This is any debate there is the sense among the left that conservatives are vulnerable right now because of the last election and because of the issues that have developed over the last year so any attempt by a state to use its constitutional authority is can be viewed with suspicion. That's exactly right. J another word press your position when you see that your opponent is down or potentially down.

They see the ride and as conservatives as being down as having been beaten as having been trounced. We have a man. Even my job situation in the Senate. They have the majority in the house.

They have the White House and they say when islands press the advantage.

This is a typical typical Democratic move of political power grab on the part of the Democrats through the executive branch of government and that exactly what you just said when you have the advantage of press the advantage. Let's take let's take on the state of Georgia.

Let's say that this comprehensive voter security and intensity, and integrity act is really racist and pointed some rhetoric in their no fact by the way whatsoever that prove that it's a race as well. I think that the federal district judge in this case is been assigned is going to see through that nonsense and that the actions of the ACLJ supported by 57 members of Congress think about this. J 57 members of the United States House of Representatives have supported us in the view that the Georgia law is constitutional.

That is pretty impressive. There's an interesting question came in from Laura on Facebook is as wide selection of postal elections being fair on's been successful like they were successful less than that's what their idea of what's fair is different so they are able to better utilize in that those times would be at because you look at the sites on the red states like Georgia are the states blue what they do is a go with a single report we can utilize a Democrat stronger like the major cities and will utilize the chaos to our advantage. Don't make the settled that we have the drop boxes but were not running them when we want outside organizations from the drop boxes we don't want the state to rub so the idea that hey we need these drop boxes because it helps people the areas it be difficult to get to you. Napoleon makes it easier there, providing that Georgia but do not allow you to just run Euro dropbox and that hurts the state seems tight. That's what they were doing.

They were running the registration voting and the dropbox and the they were providing a lot of people to vote me there was a lot more than just it, you know, kind of just a little water with a date they were incurred in encouraging people height they were hiring some people very small levels to put these teams together they ran that that the gathering a bout the date they were harvesting valid harvesting. It's what George is saying is if really do any of this is to be run by the state and by the actual government suck to be run by outside groups so that no one can point a finger regardless and was at next lecture Georgia at admin future and say it's because of this group and we don't have laws on the books that to handle. The election because of the U.S. Constitution gives the state legislatures the authority to regulate. We said this earlier time, place and manner of elections. That's the election clause of the Constitution has Georgia done anything really got a minute before the breaker that med violates that in your view, absolutely not. I think a clear reading of that statutory provision provides Georgia with sufficient constitutional authority to do what precisely they have done. However, we should also keep in mind that the Democrats by and large increasingly do not believe in the Constitution.

They believe that the nation's founding was oppressive. They seek a new framing a new funding so they don't believe in opposition.

For instance, to ballot harvesting. They believe that illegal should have the free right to vote and so the column from the New York Times which says there is no good reason you should have to be a citizen to vote.

I would argue that 30 to 50% of the left actually believe that because they see that as a way of absolutely destroying the country. I agree that this is again we had a second ever come up on secular we get into this because this this is a catalytic habits to Facebook you to persevere otitis on the air. 1-800-684-3110 at 2000 684-3110 later today and NACLJ.R will have this posted for all of you to seek and see the brief see the members of Congress begins at 57 right now if they admitted our director of affairs work at increasing the number as we speak in a big thank you to everyone who participated last. What's a matching child. I really appreciate that the American Center for all and justice were engaged in critical issues at home and abroad for limited time you can participate in the ACLJ matching challenge for every dollar you donate, it will be now $10 gift becomes $20, $50 gift becomes 100 you can make a difference in the world who knew protecting the constitutional and religious freedoms most to you and your family.

Give a gift today online ACLJ.you informed and now this is secular secular secular. We are to take a conference call to 164, 31 to the doctors on air fuel.

Your comments and Facebook, YouTube, periscope Instagram as well they could do that T monitoring. That's we can bring this to you live on the air just to reset what we are prepared to file a brief today. What's unique about this to what we did get into it too much. The first half-hour, but it's unique for the ACLJ when were filing an amicus brief like this, we represent members of Congress here.

Our up to 57.

They been our director, government affairs is is not on the air today because is working on adding to that number but includes every Republican House member for the state of Georgia as well as of course all these additional two members of the Republican leadership as Steve Scalise at least a 5 foot on top of that we this is unique because were filing at the District Court level I to fight for voter integrity.

I try for the that that trustworthiness our electoral process. We may not all like the outcome in our in our country we should have to have to go to court. We should have to question whether the outcome was correct and at the same time.

States should have the flexibility to put in place the laws that are best for them. Georgia is different from North Dakota date they should have different laws are oriented in a different loss and that's okay.

That's how the framers intended this to work is that there would be is what you need to do. You then determine what the best way to go about that in your state, and that will leave this very small role for Congress to come in and make corrections. The allegations are not that we don't like this process but that it's a racist process and so when you coveted say it's a racist process. It's goes back to like the New York Times op-ed.

You don't need to be a citizen if you oppose this subject. Your your bad because these are people work in the country. But how would you ever prove they don't like voter ID so they can have not seen this about her and her mom is all it's all to get to chaos. How do you get people to say I don't believe in this process anymore.

I don't trust this process.

I'm not wasting my time with. That's exactly worked it in the last election cycle. That idea of forcing this this this I did. That was Democrats love.

We had all these conservative leaders got there we were not part of that I began logic it serves at the site is not worth your time. Don't trust the process. So what people did show up to vote they lost. Now, what did Georgia say, well, okay, we need to do something so distant that is happening.

It voter should feel like it doesn't matter. That's not a good thing for our country for our Democratic Republic to survive Peapod to have faith in the basic institutions whether or not the person they wanted and they voted for one or lost. They believe that they wanted or lost and they think they trust the process was fair.

That's all this gets to this whole idea that voter identification is some like you know you know what you gotta that's impossible to jump over in order to vote maybe is absurd voter ID to get on an airplane.

If the voter ID thing. When your kids are going to go visit your kids or grandkids at school. Of course you have to you think that would be required for voting minimizes fundamental right is voting is. You would think that identification is required but I would tell Atty. Gen. Merrick Garland, can you get into the Justice Department without an identity. I know you can and you can't get in to see you Atty. Gen. Garland or any of your assistance while at the Department of Justice in Washington DC unless you go through machine and unless you present some sort of identification as to who you are. Should have the any less so for exercising the sovereign for the privilege of voting, the answer is absolutely not voter ID is not racist. It does not discriminate against a person because of race, nationality, creed or religion or any suspect category it's applied evenly to everybody you showing identification in Georgia. If you don't have a drivers license, you get a government ID there is a way to do that.

The law provides for that. It's not that were keeping you out but we want to do is ensure integrity in voting from scrimmage to take your thoughts or comments on this as well. If you're such a stance would hundred 6431 Facebook YouTube periscope Instagram whenever you're watching and what I could to produce check this out later today to see the breath of the representation who were representing the merciful on justice and ACLJ.org the American Center for Law and Justice were engaged in critical issues at home and abroad. Whether it's defending religious freedom. Protecting those who are persecuted for their faith. Uncovering corruption in the Washington bureaucracy fighting to protect life in the courts and in Congress ACLJ would not be able to do any of this without your support for that. We are grateful. Now there's an opportunity for you to help me way for limited time you can participate in the ACLJ's matching challenge for every dollar you donate $10 gift is $20, $50 gift becomes 100. This is a critical time for the ACLJ the work we simply would not occur without your generous take part in our matching challenge today and make a difference in protecting the constitutional and religious freedoms most important to you. You forgive today online ACLJ only one.

A society can agree that the most vulnerable invoice.

Is there any hope for that culture to survive. And that's exactly what you are saying when you stand with the American Center for Law and Justice, defendant the right to life, we've created a free powerful publication offering a panoramic view of the ACLJ's battle for the unborn Gold edition life will show you how you are personally support, and publication includes a look at all major ACLJ cases were fighting for the rights of pro-life activist the ramifications of Roe V Wade, 40 years later Planned Parenthood's role in the abortion industry and what Obama care means to the pro-life discover many ways your membership in the ACLJ is empowering the right to question a free copy of mission in life today online ACL data/countries that were not really have the pandemic, as we all see everybody stretching and get it really varies depending on where you are the country about what the laws are like rules so it's it's the time to put the rules about the voting.

In the end because we don't know knowing who predicted that we are to still be in this spot today that the world would be the spot it's in today with the same covert even without after vaccines or whatever you want to talk about that but they were in that spot in the vernacular utilized when I cannot allow this or anything else like it in the future that we may encounter to put our democracy are Democratic Republic our country in jeopardy.

That happened in 2020. I don't think is done by the way I I don't think that that that that integrity is been restored. I don't think the trust is been restored. I think some of his hesitancy on the vaccine is that that distrust of politics. Everything becomes political. The Olympics's political sports is political. And of course voting that, with the most political political things of the actual ballot be cast becomes the center point. I think this actually if you compare this to Roe versus Wade that and in that if this was at this these laws versus the child is to reverse Wade.

I think this unfortunately the idea to put in-laws up everybody can follow actually is a more appealing to the left to do.

The court packing that even the abortion-rights I think you guys, this is this is truly they know what the abortion issue think if they with the election of jailbait. We have very easy for them. But if if they don't get to change the way the game is played regularly so you can't prepare and they utilize that that that that whatever crisis the country is going through at that moment, the laws need to be ready for those but is exempt.

What this is doing this exactly what this pandemic in a crisis. What can we do so that while we still have the drop boxes overnight can allow outside groups to run the dropbox anymore.

We did last time. Okay it was a scramble but now we don't to scramble at this moment, let's put in-laws that make sense that every body Republican, Democrat, independent can follow.

That's how you make the election fair elections fair if everybody has the same rules within the New York Times you don't like you said, people are not concerned before then, the New York Times runs an op Ed a guest essay that says there's no good reason you should have to be a citizen to vote in the United States of America that if you're not a citizen of France do you get the boat. I don't think so that mean whoever this is, this is insanity. Actually, this is where you're making such a mockery of the system so in one hand, Georgia gets sued by the Department of Justice because they have monitored drop boxes and there can essay you wanted absentee ballot. You actually have to ask for. On the other hand, the left is asserting the most read newspaper supposedly United States that there's no good reason that you should have to be a citizen anti-devout. While there is no there is no rationale that whatsoever. J this business. For example, of drop boxes.

I personally witnessed that driving down a main thoroughfare in Atlanta where I live in Ponce De Leon Ave. next to a newspaper stand where you know you put a quartering in your opening if they can newspaper out was a male ground is not a corner and along Bolognese along that well I thought and I can use accorded to make a telephone call anymore. Now that's interesting. Anyway, that was a box next to or mail dropbox. It was not monitored. There was no one looking at it you can put anything you want into that and someone just came up take the box. Take the bag up.

It was a paper bag.

It was a paper bag and it was a male depository bag, picked it up and took it away.

You can't do that anymore. The Georgia law look the states have the right to enact under the Constitution, laws peculiar to their jurisdictions. Idaho, North Dakota, Minnesota, Georgia. Every jurisdiction is different than enact laws governing how they conduct their elections. The Constitution says you can do that. There is no racial animus here is not saying that only white people can ask for absentee ballots. That's not saying that it's not saying that only black people going out for absentee it says you can but it comes from the government. It doesn't come from third parties and you have to show an ID. What is wrong constitutionally with that J. Department of Justice says quite clearly, this is the argument the DOJ makes that the Georgia law is a disadvantage for minority voters.

That's what they say essentially what they are claiming is that they are morally superior individuals. Number one, number two, they are engaged in massive condescension, and it's important to note that this is a policy approach taken by the Biden administration. So the Biden administration, their opposition to voter ID laws features dueling messages from VP Harris and Pres. Biden who apparently are engaged in a contest to see which of the two can out hustle, the other in weapon icing race and racial hysteria for political purposes. The facts on the ground are basically undergird the fact that Georgia is moving in the right direction. So if you look at a comparison between the Georgia law and what is going on in the state of Delaware. Unlike Georgia Biden's home state of Delaware has never allowed early in person voting on the state will perhaps begin to do so in 2022. So what we have if we actually look at the laws side-by-side dispassionately and impartially is that Delaware's law historically has been far more restrictive then Georgia. Nonetheless, you have Pres. Biden standing before podium and articulating the following message that Jim Crow is alive and well in Georgia as opposed to being alive and well in Delaware. So if he wants to engage in such a comparison. He looked at his home state he ought to look at what the legislators in his state have done and perhaps the DOJ up to turn its attention to Delaware and argue that Delaware is in violation of the voting acts right you have this at this again at I believe this is the biggest issue politically facing offices that the idea is that we cannot have large groups of people in its receipt.

Again, this is the left knows this is affecting the right more than the left who are saying I don't trust this process. I don't trust these people and get it doesn't matter if it's it if if that trust and in the trust it's lost is right or wrong will get past that were past that now past that election if it how you moving forward. Make sure the people are willing to go through the process to vote some at the difficult process that they are willing because they understand that it's going to be fair doesn't mean they will win that it will be fair and they don't have to question the outcome of every election. We don't want to live like that in our society. We don't need to create that kind of uncertainty and unfortunately what were saying is it to get to just here's the rules, the game is habitable for were modernizing the process were utilized in the mail and were utilizing the drop boxes were to do it at state level to do what's best for the state of Georgia and that that's the people who elected to serve in the state of Georgia at the state level state legislature.

This is what's best for us.

That's how you get to move forward. If you fight these, like the DOJ is doing. You will see another 2020 that I don't know what will come from that. I don't know if it'll just be apathy or physically war the streets again, but we saw a supper of war, the streets, culminating in the smashing of the capital.

People are you at all for months on top of the pandemic pandemic is still here and there. They are starting again I think is the strictest of this fire again in a way to put their fire out is safe to fight this we put the laws in place that everybody can play by the same rules will unlike last time where the litigation was haphazard right at best. Okay not being critical, but being critical haphazard at best. With in conspiracy theories galore that were being promulgated by lawyers. What were doing is actually looking at the law and saying this law as drafted and passed by the Georgia legislature meets the constitutional requirements of the election clause of the United States Constitution.

In other words, it's constitutional. So that's why we entered in even at the trial court level, which is very rare for us at the Americans in Florence is not unheard of, but very rare but we didn't hear because it's that important. We believe in voter integrity. Okay, we oppose discrimination and racism in any form, but requiring voter ID on the plane we get back from the break with VP Harrison about voter ID and he said to go see Mayor cartons officer to go visit one of his deputies, yet the show about right yet to show ID to get in the Supreme Court of United States got a show ID to get on an airplane you have to show ID visit to turn this into a racial argument is ridiculous not get into theories about machines and all this other stuff, but all and forget all that. It's not about reality. Reality it is the law constitutional or not. In our view, the Georgia law is and that is why we are defending it at the trial court state rifles. We come back okay to take your comments on secular chicken ACLJ.org be thinking everyone participate in our matching challenge the month of July think that will be right back only one.

You forgive today online ACLJ back to secular you see on Facebook for their weapon eyes or federal law enforcement agencies against us thereby to the IRS scandal targeting to restate what is what's happening. So in red states.

The DOJ that's where the edges going review of the voting laws in the list even though those laws are more restrictive and usually don't have all these other options and ways to vote and certainly not the widespread level their tidy states that combined to make up again. Then their strongholds but not reviewing those rules you went with Anna and again I think if you look historically back.

It states that the kind of do everything possible to make it fair for everyone state is states that were subject to.

Until recently, voting rights act reviewed by the DOJ Georgia. These states have tried to do everything.

But last time around. They got put the badges there was a lot of bad decisions at the state level by Georgia by Republicans just speak a word were honest and clear.

They wouldn't fight Stacy a prison court. They were afraid of her and they were afraid of the claim she was making so what happened chaos in the Georgia election but that's because they said okay that chaos they created, they they welcomed in the chaos theory of while who's going to the opera whose gathering the ballots who's putting this together and get out tasers worked a lot politics would when you're at the base level of not be able to understand what the law is throw your campaign apparatus at the window. It doesn't matter because if if if if it's unclear for people who have been from the whole how they should go about getting ballots to people. It was during a pandemic. I think we can be prepared not to were nestling to be dealing with covert in the next major election cycle. The mentors we might be or something else who does not deal with it. Let's get ready as a country and let the states do what they think is best so that people don't say don't show up to vote yet. Which by the way, Republicans were saying including Republicans that were no hurt. The Georgia election but not even that were not talking about was the election stolen was, it would become one of the outcome been different fundamental constitutional fairness. Now I want to play though what the Atty. Gen. Atty. Gen., Mayor Carlin said about the lawsuit and then I want to get Harry whets any responding listener what he said our complaint alleges that recent changes to Georgia selection laws were enacted with the purpose of denying or abridging the right of black Georgians to vote on account of their race or color in violation of section 2 of the voting rights act that that is a very serious allegation made against the state legislature that they were basically engaging in Jim Crow now looking at what the law actually did, you got it request a mail-in ballot that the drop boxes are to be monitored and be state official drop boxes and the basic identical boat identification requirements summer start with Harry, the Atty. Gen. has said this is abridging the right of black Georgians to vote on account of their race that is a fundamental charge of racism by the Georgia legislature. Well, there is not a scintilla of evidence in support of Merrick Garland's claim. Indeed in Georgia it is easier for African-Americans to vote then African-Americans in Delaware and many other states. So in Georgia. They have expanded the hours for voting. They are allowing absentee voting, they are simply ensuring greater inlet, election integrity and election security and African-American voters by and large, support what Georgia is doing unlike what dark Merrick Garland is saying right Wes you said earlier, I think this is important for audience to say that that when you do something like this you cheapen the actual issues of race and some that do exist within culture. Absolutely, you know, I do not believe we are a racist nation.

But like any nation were a nation that has races in it and there are some racist policies out there in certain places, but to accuse the state of Georgia of racism or any other entity when there is no racism involved is an affront to the victims of true racism is an insult to them and not only that J these accusations from Merrick Garland are an affront to anyone who is for free and fair elections. I encourage people to read the 98 page piece of legislation Georgia it it really is not racist at all. There's not even at a scintilla of race and stuff and it it makes it easy to vote hard to cheat what Merrick Garland and his Department of Justice is doing their losing their integrity by attacking voter Integra listener what VP Harris had to say about voter identification agreeing to voter ID.

One of those compromises.

I don't think that we should underestimate what that could mean because in some people's minds.

That means Jack and I have to on Xerox HF art art photocopy your ID defended and to prove you are who you are well there.

Holland people special people are living in rural communities don't. There is no Kinko's. There's no OfficeMax and then people have to understand the monetizing of voter ID. Be clear about who you have in mind and what would be required to prove who they are? To prove who they are but not in a way that makes it then it almost impossible for them to prove. Of course, people have to prove who they are but not in a way that makes it almost impossible for them to prove who they are not party addresses were taught not the state of Georgia will issue you an ID card, you can go to any County city local township and get it copied.

Nobody's going to be a problem. You don't have to own a Xerox machine and maybe make diving by the copy machines.

This is absurd.

It really is gay and really as you can be in a county in rural south Georgia where I spent my professional career and you could go to the county registrar's office in the county seat and you can get a county or a state ID issued that would allow you to be vote if you don't have a drivers license, you don't have to own a Xerox machine. You don't have to have a Kinko's nearby, you, you don't have to have a massive reproduction facility in which you go in and get copies made vice President Harris is absolutely incorrect, as is Merrick Garland statement that this is a racist law. These are not racist laws.

These are laws that are supported by most all of the citizenry votes in the state of Georgia and those statements are just my balls either free you have to pay for no cost or I just got notification from our counselor exhibiting that our brief has been fact Jordan been filed yesterday. Got it. We we are again finds the District Court level, which is not where we usually take three representatives in Congress that we usually start the at the appellate court level. We believe this is so critical to get ahead of this site that the trial court.

What could be the term of the trial court phase of this so critical not just in Georgia but to more than a dozen other states, red states, predominantly that day there. Also, the DOJ's crosshairs. This is the first test. This is the this is the test number one.

Can we be Georgia if so that we could take this around and we beat all these other states were to be back to the same place but I was about 20 Miller said because I live in the in 2021. She is try to talk like we don't live in a time we can scan things on your phone edit. By the way the folder free and so people are handing out phones and every one set of four. Yes, that there's people that are in tough economic situations or rural areas laws. That's why you have the flexibility at the state level to figure out what's best for your state, and the residence of your state was live in urban areas would live the rural areas. You get to deter because you actually live there and represent them at the state level, which is what our founding fathers intended is that type figure out what's best for that FedEx Kinko's or not you time and outdated things. Let's be honest we write back on secular.

They live in like two decades ago. They love that?
