(Luis Cornelio, Headline USA) The weaponization of government against conservatives was reportedly only the tip of the iceberg obscuring a much more Draconian scheme to usurp American elections.
In an op-ed for The Washington Times, journalist Fred Lucas broke down President Joe Biden’s “Tammany Hall 2.0” plot to turn federal agencies into “get-out-the-vote” machines, an effort that, if implemented, would lead to a complete Democrat takeover of U.S. elections. Tammany Hall was a Democrat, corrupt machine that had a political grip on New York City in the 20th century.
“In March 2021, President Biden signed Executive Order 14019, aimed at turning federal agencies into a get-out-the-vote operation, and working with so far unnamed private organizations to do so,” Lucas said in the scathing op-ed published Monday.
“Don’t worry. The White House assures us this is nonpartisan,” he wrote. “Democrats failed to pass a sweeping federal takeover of elections in 2021 and 2022 when they controlled Congress. They are relying heavily on this executive order to do the job for them.”
It is unknown how or when federal agencies will implement the plan because Biden appointees are withholding the “sketchy” details of their scheme.
Lucas warned that the Biden plan is “more subtle” than Tammany Hall, which “worked to get prisoners released to ensure they voted and even established a ‘naturalization mill’ to instantly turn immigrants coming off boats into voters.”
The Department of Homeland Security, Lucas said, was ordered by Biden to focus on voter registration in the style of Tammany Hall. DHS was instructed to provide so-called guidance to hundreds of thousands of “citizens naturalized each year,” while the Justice Department focused on providing “information about voting to individuals in federal custody, facilitate voting by those who remain eligible to do so while in federal custody, and educate individuals before reentry about voting rules and voting rights in their states.”
In 2022, DHS came under fire for initiating a Disinformation Governance Board, a group that focused on pushing back against so-called “disinformation” and “misinformation.” Conservative voices accused the board and its embattled leftist director, Nina Jankowicz, of plotting a scheme to silence speech, particularly those who went against their ideological beliefs. The Disinformation Governance Board, also known as the Biden Ministry of Truth, was halted merely three weeks after its initial launch amid relentless outcry from conservatives and the GOP.
The Democrat Party, through its operatives in the U.S. Congress, attempted to usurp U.S. elections through the federalization of COVID-related policies that relaxed a handful of electoral security measures that had been implemented by several states to prevent the exploitation of elections. Voting by mail, for instance, was often kept for voters who were indefinitely confided. That changed, however, amid the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, with some swing states mass-delivering paper ballots even to those who did not request them.
Lucas ended the op-ed calling out private entities for aiding in the Biden “Tammany Hall 2.0” plan.
“Tammany Hall 2.0 should be defined more broadly than just Mr. Biden’s order,” he concluded. “It must include the various private actors — such as election litigator Marc Elias, the Stacey Abrams-founded Fair Fight Action and the Brennan Center for Justice — that vigorously work to block any legal mechanism to stop voter fraud.”
