Pelosi touts HR 1 as a tool against ‘misinformation’ as conservatives raise election fraud concerns

Even as many conservatives express concerns about the election reform bill known as the For the People Act, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) had words of effusive praise for her Democratic colleagues during a press conference this week.

Specifically, she struck a jubilant tone as she celebrated the decision to pass H.R. 1 along partisan lines.

“Big, dark special interest money”

According to Breitbart, Pelosi cited the input of the late Rep. John Lewis (D-GA), who wrote “the first 300 pages” of the bill in an effort to “remove voter suppression tactics from our political system.”

As for the rest, the House speaker declared that it was intended “to protect the integrity of our electoral system, the physical infrastructure of our elections,” and other related concerns.

“What’s exciting about it is it restores confidence that people have that their vote and their voice is as important as anyone’s,” she said.

The longtime Democratic congresswoman heralded the fact that her party “can address the climate crisis if big, dark special interest money is not suffocating the airwaves with misinformation about how to protect the planet.”

Going on to applaud other provisions included in H.R. 1, Pelosi said that Democrats “can have background checks passed in the whole Congress of the United States to protect our children if big, dark special interest gun lobbying money is not suffocating the airwaves.”

“Sweeping and irrevocable damage”

Right-wing pundits and politicos, on the other hand, were not nearly as impressed. For his part, conservative writer Ben Shapiro dedicated much of his daily podcast on Friday to the argument that the bill would make free and fair elections all but impossible.

“H.R. 1 would seize the authority of states to regulate registration and the voting process, forcing states to implement early voting, automatic voter registration, same-day registration, online registration, and no-fault absentee ballots,” he claimed.

According to Shapiro, the act “would also make it pretty much mandatory that elections would go on for weeks at a time” as officials count absentee ballots, thus promoting further distrust in the electoral process.

The For the People Act, Shapiro concluded, “would make it easier to commit fraud and chaos at the polls through same-day registration — literally you would walk up and you would cast a provisional ballot, and you would register at the exact same time.”

In a statement last month, dozens of prominent conservatives signed on to a statement opposing H.R. 1 “in the strongest terms” on the basis that it “would cause sweeping and irrevocable damage to the free speech, privacy, and integrity that are central components to free and fair elections in America.”

  1. All senators must kill this bill! Call your senators, and demand they vote it down, if you want free and fair elections! This bill cannot stand!

    1. I contacted my congress people and they voted for it anyway. With the people in power now, we’re doomed. Only good thing: so are they!

    2. After the allowing and “cover-ups” of rampant voter fraud in2020, “free and fair elections” in this country are no longer. (and actually were a “MYTH” to begin) with as powerful people behind the scenes DICTATE who can and Cannot “win ” elections. It was NEVER about the “voters’ that is nothing but an illusion.
      This presentation will clear up a lot it is long, but very “enlightening”
      I would suggest anyone that cares about this country to watch and spread it around.

  2. This is just garbage!! We can never again vote knowing our vote is counted….NEVER! What ever happened to honesty and integrity? It must have just flown out of the window??

    1. Yep. It just flew out the window on the same BROOM that the Old Witch Pelousy flew off on.

      Lies and Corruption all enshrouded around Nancy Pelousy!! It’s time to remove that OLD Witch, likely I mis-spelled her true Name Witch???

    2. Well what happened is we got too many Dems in office and they are under the direction of Piglosy who is probably the most dishonest person in America.

  4. The bill is to prevent “voter suppression” says Pelosi. Voter suppression in her mind is requiring that a voter is a legal voter and votes only one time. The Democrats have found the formula for evading this and has used it effectively and want to continue the practice, no, they want to legalize it. Vote early, late and often. Does anybody, anybody really bellieve Biden legally got 12 million more votes than Obama? Really believe this? From the basement ? Come on man.

  5. Traitor Pelosi can lie all she wants as it seems the DOJ, FBI and SCOTUS will ever bring her to justice. So now it is up to the Patriots, regardless of party affiliation, to point out that ALL VOTING LAWS ARE EXPRESSLY GIVEN TO THE SEPARATE STATES BY THE CONSTITUTION. So stop wasting the valuable time it will take to have such a bill overturned by the SCOTUS as unconstitutional and overwhelmingly vote against this travesty of a bill. Any Senator, regardless if party affiliation, who has the the unmitigated gall to vote for a bill they know to be unconstitutional should be recalled or impeached by their states citizens. This bill is clearly unconstitutional and you do not have to be a Constitutional scholar to see that, a 6th grade education would more than suffice!

  6. I agree with all the comments We need to pray for a clear path back to the White House for President. Then every state needs to clean up it’s voter roles with Tom Fitton’s help. Take back both houses of congress(I’m wondering if they both really went red this 2020 election), then make sure the same voter fraud NEVER happens in any state again.

  7. Read this hr1 carefully it’s all the tricks they used in the 2020 elections.
    The only thing the Democrat’s can FIX is elections every thing else they destroy!

  8. It appears to me she seems to know a lot about t dark money, I wonder why?? Is that why they’re trying to destroy this country and give handouts to everyone? So these politicians are going to give up part of their salaries back to the people along with bathe milionaires? I think not. Bible says don’t work don’t eat. Everyone can and should do something productive not hand outs and being bought off. Where’s the money gone to now, who’s getting the kick backs now with what they have??? Think on it….!!!!

  9. I think a little revolution once in a while is a good thing, don’t you?

    Also. The tree of liberty must be watered regularly with the blood of true patriots.

  10. This bill is to ensure that Democrats win every election now and in the future. This is how they won this election based on fraud. They saw it worked and want to do it all the time. They must be stopped. Biden has already ruined the Country in 4 more years this Country will be totally destroyed.

  11. Any Democrat that votes for this Bill HR1. Will be in trouble with their home state… House or Senate…. Be mindful of this when going along with Pelosi…. We will find out!! Do not vote for it Mr Vela or Cuellar…..

  12. NANCY PELOSI, there is not one danged thing you can do or say that will restore confidence in the American public! WE DO NOT TRUST YOU ANY MORE! DO YOU UNDERSTAND WHAT I AM SAYING? You have destroyed any faith that good Americans might have had in your ability to do your job!!! May God forgive you because I am not sure we Americans can!

  13. The foundation of our constitution is under attack by this bill. Mail in voting can work if the ballot an individual receives is bar coded specifically to that voter. It has worked in Colorado and is an expensive process and has taken 20+ years to get there. Making it easier for voters to vote must not be at the expense of fraudulent practices by local officals. All states must purge voting roles of dead citizens and inactive voters to prevent fraud. No voter harvesting should be allowed. Absentee voting is fine if proof of ID is provided. Voting in person is a basic process reserved to the States in the 10th amendment.

  14. This bill would make MORE Election Fraud . Pelosi is again is looking out for themselves and not the American people. Democrats only care about getting it done their way. Democrats want to create a new world, only democrats can be in it and you have to do everything the way they want you to do things. Their Laws, their Rules, their Way. It has to benefit them and their Lives only.

  15. I think that if anything should be changed about our election integrity. Is that California, be required, like most of us, to go the polls. The Pelosi family has to be stopped. Like her Nephew, the present Governor of California.

  16. That is a good tip especially to those fresh to the blogosphere.
    Simple but very accurate information… Many thanks for sharing this one.
