Biden Wants To Move 635 Acres of Dirt, Trees And Buildings Out Of Georgia.

After making a ridiculous claim concerning professional athletes and getting cover from the media for it, President Biden was asked that now that MLB moved the All Star game, what should The Masters Golf Tournament at the Augusta National Golf Club do in light of the new Georgia voting laws.

I think that’s up to the Masters,” Biden said. “Look, you know, it is reassuring to see that for profit operations and businesses are speaking up about how these new Jim Crow laws are just antithetical to who we are.”

EDITOR’S NOTE: Does Biden remember that Jim Crow laws were passed by Democrats?

The Masters Tournament is played at Augusta National Golf Club in Georgia.

Biden acknowledged that when big tournaments, games and even corporations relocate, local workers and residents often experience the economic consequences.

“I think it’s a very tough decision for a corporation to make or group to make,” Biden added. “But I respect them when they make that judgment and I support whatever judgment they make. But it’s the best way to deal with this is for Georgia and other states to smarten up. Stop it, stop it. It’s about getting people to vote.”

Somehow we get the impression that Biden believes that the Augusta National Golf Course, all 635 acres of dirt, a 90,000 square foot retail and dining center, clubhouses, trees (including the famous Eisenhower tree on the 17th hole,) creeks, a pond, etc., can be somehow picked up and moved somewhere.

Just rent a really big U-Haul truck.

The fact of the matter is that the Masters tournament is tied to the Augusta National Golf Club. The history of the club and the tournament are in Georgia and trying to do anything to move it shows a complete total disdain for the history of the sport.

What makes it even worse is that Biden and many on the left continue to claim the new laws are designed to prevent people from voting.

That’s a lie and if Biden wasn’t so out of it mentally, he would know that.

For example, Biden claims that people cannot have or be given food and drink while in line.

That’s false.

The law on food and drink comes from electioneering workers using the premise of food and drink to get people in line to vote for a candidate. In short, campaigns were giving people food and water while inside the “no electioneering” area in order to talk to voters and or trade the food and drink for votes.

The new law clarifies that people cannot electioneer using food and drink inside the no-electioneering zone, but people can bring their own food and drink or poll workers can provide non-partisan food and drink to people in line.

Biden also makes the false claim that voting hours were reduced. They were not. They were expanded.

The confusion within the law comes from the fact the previous version of the law said that minimum voting hours would take place during “normal business hours.” Many rural counties were only open part time. The new bill requires offices stay open from 9-5 and that election boards can maintain hours from 7 AM to 7 PM, which were the same hours in the old law. Somehow in the mind of Biden and many on the left, more hours is a reduction of voting hours.

Biden and the left somehow claim that voter ID’s are voter suppression.

Not surprisingly, they are wrong.

Residents can receive a free ID Card from the state at any county registrar’s office with proper proof of residency and other documentation.

Out of Georgia’s near 11 million population, approximately 200,000 Georgian’s lack a drivers license or state identification card, according to CNN. That is less than 2% of the state’s population. AJC reports 97% of registered Georgia voters have an official driver’s license or state ID.

For the some 200,000 residents who don’t have identification, Georgia residents can receive a Georgia ID card which has no age restriction. Applicants have to fill out the required forms to receive an ID. Applicants must also provide proof of residency, their social security number and proof of citizenship. Utility bills, phone bills and a birth certificate are just some of the ways residents can prove they are Georgia residents.

Voters will be required to request and return an absentee ballot with an ID, be it either a driver’s license or state ID number. Voters can also verify their ballot with the last four digits of their social security number. Votes can be returned online through an online request portal so long as a voter has their driver’s license number or state ID number, according to Georgia Public Broadcasting.

Voter identification laws are not uncommon and at least 35 states require voters to show or present some form of ID when voting, whether it be by mail or in person. Georgia already has voter ID laws in place for in person voting.

We think a little background and history might be helpful.

In the 1980 and 1990, Florida, specifically Miami-Dade and Broward, were having election problems. Elections were being contested where it was shown that somehow people that were dead, or who no longer lived in the state were voting. Not only that, cats and dogs were voting as well. This was an issue where both Republicans and Democrats were complicit. A federal judge ordered the State of Florida to clean up it’s election rolls. The job was awarded to Electronic Data Systems (EDS,) the company of former Presidential candidate Ross Perot. EDS would later claim that they had no guidance from the State on how to clean up the voter rolls, but clean them they did. People that were about to be excluded from voting were sent multiple warnings and requests to verify they were still alive and in the same location. Some ignored the notices. In the now infamous 2000 election between George Bush and Al Gore, people in the state found they were off of the rolls. (If only they had responded to the verification requests like others had…..) Supervisors of Elections in all counties were instructed to allow people to cast provisional ballots and life went on.

Except it didn’t.

Democrats were livid at the results of the 2000 Presidential Election and then President Clinton appointed a commission to study what had happened in Florida.

The Commission’s report was deeply flawed as it was aimed at trying to overturn the election rather than solve actual problems.

The Commission did say some thing with which we agree such as the sanctity of a person’s vote must be protected from fraud, and secondly, when even one person cannot legal cast a vote or their vote is cancelled by fraudulent actions, that is one person too many and the system must be overhauled to protect that one person.

Fast forward 20 years, and the left’s tune has changed. Elections and votes should not be protected from fraud which is what ID’s help do.

The new refrain on the 2020 election from the left is that there is “no indication of widespread fraud that would have changed the results of the election.”

Somehow we went from making sure every vote was legal and no one was disenfranchised due to fraud, to “only widespread fraud” matters.

We have seen people state the idea of showing ID to vote somehow violates the Constitution.

Yet these same people want ID’s and government approval to purchase a weapon. They want people to pay for permits to exercise their rights of speech. More permits for the right to gather. Some state and local governments require ID’s to get into places where City Council meetings, legislative meeting or even Court cases are being held. Those requirements certainly impact the right to seek redress from the government.

Yet all of these rights – voting, speech, government access, bearing arms are predicated on one basic requirement that is enumerated in another foundational document of the United States.

From the Declaration of Independence:

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed…

Without life of the individual, there are no rights for that individual.

Which makes it all the more odd that Biden is proposing a mandatory “Vaccination ID Card” which at some point in time would be required to gain access to stores and the government.

People would presumably be barred from going into a store to purchase food in order to eat and stay alive.

Somehow Biden thinks that preventing people from eating – and thereby ending or at the very least negatively impacting their lives – is acceptable, but requiring an ID card to vote is not acceptable.

Biden lied about the Georgia voting laws and continues to lie about it today.

Then again, maybe he was too busy trying to figure out how to move 635 acres across state lines.
