Biden ha tenuto un discorso ‘emotivo’ a Philadelphia. Tutto da gustarsi.

Biden 001

Per Joe Biden sono ‘inconcepibili’ le leggi degli stati, le quali sono state sentenziate dalla Suprema Corte essere perfettamente costituzionali. Quindi, secondo lui, anche la sentenza della Suprema Corte sarebbe ‘inconcepibile’.

Lo stesso Bloomberg, fedele scudiero, ha dovuto ammettere che è stato un “emotional  speech”, affermazione che è tutto tranne che un complimento.

«Arizona’s challenged voting regulations governing precinct-based election-day voting (rejecting ballots cast in the wrong precinct) and early mail-in voting (making it a crime for anyone other than an authorized proxy to possess the early ballot of another voter) do not violate §2 of the Voting Rights Act of 1965; Arizona House Bill 2023 (enacting the early mail-in voting regulations) was not enacted with a racially discriminatory purpose.»

Usa. Corte Suprema. Biden intona le geremiadi. Mai un presidente disse cose più sconce.

Usa. La Harris-Biden Administration potrebbe dichiarare default a breve termine.

Harris-Biden Administration. Stanno iniziando a litigarsi. Kamala-Harris.

Harris-Biden Administration. Potrebbe non sopravvivere al midterm.

Usa. Dopo quello di Milwaukee anche un giudice della Florida blocca una legge di Biden.

Usa. L’incubo della inflazione. Alita sul collo della Harris-Biden Administration.

Harris-Biden Administration. Brucia sulla graticola degli eventi che non sa dominare.

Usa. Suprema Corte. Sentenzia a favore dell’Arizona sulle restrizioni al voto.

Con la sentenza Brnovich v. Democratic National Committee (19-1257) la Suprema Corte degli Stati Uniti ha dichiarato che le leggi dell’Arizona che regolamentano le procedure elettorali sono costituzionalmente corrette.

Di conseguenza, chiunque le critichi ovvero le avversi, critica ed avversa nel contempo sia l’operato della Suprema Corte sia un provvedimento costituzionale.

«President delivers emotional speech on voting in Philadelphia»

Con questo discorso ‘emozionale’ Biden avversa la Suprema Corte e la Costituzione americana.

«To me this is simple. This is election subversion …. “an assault on democracy, an assault on liberty, and an assault on who we are”»

Sono frasi che si commentano da sole.

Che una sentenza della Suprema Corte sia un assalto alla democrazia sembrerebbe essere frase molto fuori da ranghi.

L’articolista segnala anche che

«He didn’t mention the Senate filibuster».

La filibustering è una comprovata tecnica dei gestione del senato, che consente alla opposizione di fare innalzare la soglia del voto valido da 50% più uno al 60%.

Ben difficilmente la Harris-Biden Administration sarà in grado di far approvare al senato una legge che contrasti la sentenza della Corte Suprema.

Quasi sicuramente scateneranno la piazza, ma tanto indietro non si torna.

Sembrerebbe essere tramontato il tempo della baldoria elettorale, ove si dice che taluni abbiano votato più volte e che i morti abbiano adempiuto al dovere de voto.

Biden Calls Voting Rights Bills ‘Imperative’ to Fight GOP Curbs

– President delivers emotional speech on voting in Philadelphia

– He calls GOP state laws curbing ballot access ‘unconscionable’

*

President Joe Biden delivered an emotional and combative speech in defense of broadening the right to vote, declaring it a “national imperative” for Congress to pass legislation that would counter new Republican laws in several states that curb ballot access.

“To me this is simple. This is election subversion,” Biden said Tuesday in Philadelphia, referring to the GOP state laws.

Republicans “want the ability to reject the final count and ignore the will of the people,” he said, noting that some of the laws would enable state legislatures to strip control of elections from local officials. “If their preferred candidate loses, they’re trying not only targeting people of color, they’re targeting voters of all races and backgrounds.”

“It’s unconscionable,” he said.

Republicans say that the voting restrictions are necessary to protect election integrity. The wave of legislation, though, is inspired by former President Donald Trump’s false claims that he lost the November election because of rampant fraud, primarily in cities with large Black and Hispanic populations. Black voters turned out overwhelmingly for Biden during the Democratic primaries and the general election.

Biden called the state laws “an assault on democracy, an assault on liberty, and an assault on who we are” and said “bullies and merchants of fears and peddlers of lies are threatening the very foundation” of the country.

He didn’t mention the Senate filibuster.

Last week, Biden met with the leaders of civil rights organizations at the White House to discuss voting rights legislation and police reform. They told Biden that there would be nonviolent protests during the remainder of the summer to call attention to voting rights.

Activists have been frustrated at Biden’s reluctance to endorse eliminating the filibuster. So far, he has only been able to address voting rights through executive actions that lack the teeth or sweep to respond to the state laws.

“We also have to be clear-eyed about the obstruction we face. Legislation is one tool, but not the only tool. It’s not the only measure of our obligation to defend democracy,” Biden said.

He cited Attorney General Merrick Garland’s June announcement to double staff working on voting rights issues and to challenge the restrictive state laws in court.

“The focus will be on dismantling racially discriminatory laws, like the recent challenge to Georgia’s vicious anti-voting law. The Department of Justice will do so with a voting rights division, that at my request, is doubling its size in enforcement staff,” Biden said.

Still civil rights groups have indicated that they will continue to pressure Biden and Congress to support a modification of the filibuster to get the bills passed. Al Sharpton, in comments to reporters in Philadelphia after Biden’s speech, said he reiterated to Biden that he wanted him to change his position on the procedure. He said the president “didn’t commit” on supporting a modification.

“He said we’re still working through our position on that, so he’s noncommittal,” Sharpton said. “You’ve got to do a workaround or change the filibuster, otherwise all of what he said and we’ve been saying is at risk here. And that’s why I wanted to be here. I thought it was monumental that he did this.”

Sharpton, leader of the National Action Network, was among civil rights leaders that met with Biden at the White House last week. Wade Henderson, interim president of the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, also applauded Biden’s speech, though he called on the White House and Congress to do more to pass the bills. Henderson also participated in the meeting last week.

Biden and Harris “must do everything possible” to ensure the voting rights legislation passes, Henderson said in a statement. “Even if that means supporting the change of archaic Senate rules to protect our freedom to vote.”
