Think about this for a minute—Joe Biden was seriously considering Stacey Abrams, failed gubernatorial candidate from Georgia as his pick as a running mate for vice president.
Abrams, whose only “claim to fame” was serving 10 years in the Georgia State Legislature and who to this date still hasn’t conceded an election she lost nearly two years ago could literally be one heartbeat (or in the case of Biden, one brain cell) from the presidency.
God help us.
Clearly, Democrats are down with the revolution right now, on board with violent riots that have torn our cities apart, down with statues and monuments that represent our history and our heritage being torn down or otherwise destroyed, and totally behind the fundamental transformation of our Republic into something none of us will recognize.
And as one of those “down for the revolution” Democrats, Stacey Abrams is in for the struggle.
Breitbart News reported that Abrams, who looks about as presidential as Elmer Fudd does for secretary of defense, went totally off the rails recently, blaming the United States Constitution for “the beginning of the practice of voter suppression in the United States.” Yes, she actually said that. The worst part is, she actually believes it.
“Voter suppression was baked into the notion of America,” she told Vanity Fair. “It was embedded not in our Declaration, which was a glorious document, but the Constitution began the practice of voter suppression.”
“We are reaffirming the experiment right now, but we are also seeing some terrible examples of the original flaw in our design, which is that we have delegated to the states the ability to determine not eligibility, but access.
Luckily, we have 34 states that already have some version of vote-by-mail with no excuses. We have 16 states that do it to a lesser degree.”
Stacey Abrams: U.S. Constitution ‘Began the Practice of Voter Suppression’
THE CONSTITUTION THAT ESTABLISHED THE RIGHT TO VOTE SUPPRESSES THE RIGHT OF NONCITIZENS TO VOTE?

President Trump has been an outspoken critic of mail-in voting, claiming that it is ripe for fraud and abuse. Abrams says that “voter fraud is not real” and “does not affect the outcome of elections.”
The funny thing is that Abrams made herself a household name claiming that voter fraud IS real. She claimed that so-called “voter suppression” is why she lost the governor’s race in Georgia.
Now she is claiming that “voter fraud is not real.” Abrams apparently is either dyslexic, has short-term memory loss, or is an opportunistic liar. We’ll go with the latter. Voter suppression is the same thing, or at least part of, voter fraud.
Of course, Abrams tries to equivocate between “voter fraud” and “voter suppression.”
“We know that, but we cannot allow them to frame voter fraud and treat it as an equivalence to voter suppression. Voter suppression denies the right to vote to millions. Voter fraud over 20 years, at best, occurred 1,300 times. Millions every year versus thousands over twenty years. There is no comparison.
“Delegitimization of elections happens when numbers are close and one of the ways that those who engage in voter suppression can claim victory, either in reality or putatively, is that they can shave the margins like anyone who tries to steal.”
For his part, President Trump is looking for a fair and honest process, which he says mail-in balloting does not allow.
“We’re not going to destroy this country by allowing things like that to happen. We’re not destroying our country,” Trump said. “This has more to do with fairness and honesty, and really, our country itself.”
President Trump isn’t the only one concerned about voter fraud. Last month, Attorney General William Barr warned that mail-in voting on a widespread basis “absolutely opens the floodgates to fraud.”
“Those things are delivered into mailboxes. They can be taken out. There’s questions about whether or not it even defines a secret ballot, because a lot of the states have you signing the outside of the envelope,” Barr told Maria Bartiromo on Fox News Channel’s Sunday Morning Futures.
“So, the person who opens—person who opens the envelope will know how people voted. There’s no—right now, a foreign country could print up tens of thousands of counterfeit ballots, and [it would] be extremely hard for us to detect which was the right and which was the wrong ballot.
So, I think it can—it can upset and undercut the confidence in the integrity of our elections. If anything, we should tighten them up right now.”
It really isn’t surprising that Abrams would go after the Constitution. With Democrats recently going so low as to actually condemn Founding Fathers such as George Washington and Thomas Jefferson as racists, and to even support the removal of monuments honoring Presidents Abraham Lincoln and Ulysses S. Grant, both instrumental in the defeat of the Confederacy and ending slavery, going after our founding documents isn’t much of a stretch.
It’s surprising that Abrams actually didn’t condemn the Declaration of Independence, since it said, “all MEN are created equal,” and didn’t mention women, gender-nonconforming, gender non-binary, and so on. After all, Democrats seem to believe that that was acceptable behavior over 246 years ago should play by 2020 rules. That’s ridiculous.
Let’s face it America, this isn’t the Democratic party of John F. Kennedy. The Democratic party today is comprised of radicals who are controlling the narrative, and whom Democratic leadership, Pelosi, Schumer, Hoyer, etc. are scared to death of.
They are letting the Ocasio-Cortez’s, the Omar’s, the Tlaib’s, and company dictate the direction of the party.
Seriously, going after the United States Constitution, the foundational documents that made the United States the most powerful nation on Earth?
Take a long, hard look at what Democrats are saying, but more importantly, what they are doing…or not doing. They are trying to defund the police as crime in our major cities exploding at levels not seen in decades.
They are throwing down with an organization, the founders of which have admitted that they are trained Marxists. Democrats take the side of violent protesters while condemning Americans who want to return to work and earn a living.
They look at a monument honoring four of our greatest presidents and recognized two of them as “white men who owned slaves.”
You want to know why President Trump is worried about mail-in voting and voter fraud? It isn’t about just HIS election. He knows that if he loses, America as we have known it for the past 246 years is done. Don’t think for a minute that China and Russia aren’t watching what’s going on in this country and realizing that America is awfully close to being ripe for the picking.
Democrats are about to nominate a man who clearly is losing his faculties. That is not an insult on Biden. It is there for anyone who chooses to open their eyes. Likewise, Democrats are NOT about to nominate a vice-presidential candidate based on qualifications—only based on their gender and the color of their skin.
