INSANITY: 125 Democrats Just Voted To Let 16 Year Olds Cast a Presidential Ballot

The one Republican might surprise you.

Thursday, the U.S. House of Representatives voted to reject an amendment to HR1 that would have lowered the voting age to 16, despite 126 House members who voted in favor of the resolution.

As reported by Bloomberg’s Greg Giroux, the amendment that was introduced by Rep. Ayana Pressley (D-Mass.), and was shot down by a count of 126-305.

Lowering the voting age is generally a Democratic Party trope, given that uneducated, idealistic children who have never had to pay massive amounts of taxes imposed by Democrats generally lean left. But one Republican surprisingly voted in favor of the amendment.

Rep. Michael Burgess (R-Texas) voted with 125 Democrats to lower the voting age, first noted by columnist Phil Kerpen. Burgess, usually a reliable conservative who is strong on border security and outspokenly anti-amnesty, has not provided an explanation for his vote.

HR1, which is scheduled to be voted upon Friday in the House, is a controversial bill on the whole. The bill would remove the power of states to create voting districts, instead giving that power to “independent” commissions. It would also have wide ranging ramifications in the arena of campaign finance and impose a code of ethics for Supreme Court Justices.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) mocked the bill as a “parade of horrible.”

Mitch McConnell Will Vote to Confirm Far-Left Open Borders Merrick Garland as Attorney General

What is he thinking?

Published

on

Republican Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell confirmed that he plans to vote for President Biden’s Attorney General nominee, Merrick Garland, speaking on Tuesday afternoon to Politico.

Garland’s confirmation hearing took a sharply partisan approach, with the spurned former Supreme Court nominee vowing to prioritize political prosecutions of trespassers involved in the January 6th Capitol riot.

Garland may be among Biden’s most radical cabinet nominees, and some have questioned if he intends to pursue revenge on Republicans for spiking his Supreme Court nomination in 2016. The circuit judge espoused a legal philosophy that wouldn’t view illegal immigration as a crime, a radical embrace of Biden’s “America Last” migration approach that prioritizes the interests of illegal aliens over American citizens.

Garland had likened a handful of raucous protestors who trespassed in the Capitol to the Oklahoma city bombing, stating the politically charged incident would be his highest priority as Attorney General. In reality, the vast majority of the dozens of people charged in the riot are charged with misdemeanors- a far cry from an “armed insurrection.” Garland went on to reference vaguely-defined “domestic extremism” as a supposed imminent threat, a recurring sentiment from Biden cabinet nominees looking for an easy means to criminalize activity that challenges the interests of establishment liberalism.

McConnell may live to regret the day in he handed a green light to Biden’s personal attorney. With the Democrat-Corporate-Media complex set to build a system of ‘Total Governance,’ Garland stands to become a crucial figure in an attack on traditional American law and order, aiming to replace it with a system in which neoliberal globalism reigns as the highest law in the land.
