Every time Lead and I talk about DOJ over-reach, we always get this "guffaw" from the left. So in my normal morning news I found this tidbit of DOJ in bed and having just one of its orgies with the left. DOJ of course, wanted to bury the facts in the case, but the judge ruled against them and ordered the opening of the files.

This also is about the lies the left. What pedojoe plugged as "Jim Crow 2.0" claiming it was racist (which doesn't even mean anything anymore) and sets the law back decades. The lie was so bad, MLB moved the all-star game from Atlanta to denver to protest the law, a huge hit to Atlanta in particular, and Georgia in general. Now we have the written documents to show this was nothing more than a BS wokester straw man. It's also a great example of the DOJ being politicized for wokester causes. Putin and Xi would be proud of using the government to run such a propaganda tool here.


Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger scored a victory over the Biden Justice Department when a federal judge ruled Tuesday that the law enforcement agency has to turn over secret communications with liberal interest groups targeting Georgia’s new election reform law.

In 2021, the Georgia Legislature passed and Gov. Brian Kemp, a Republican, signed into law SB 202, known as the Election Integrity Act, which expanded voter ID requirements to absentee ballots, established guidelines for ballot drop boxes, required that wait times at polling places be no longer than one hour per person, and gave the State Election Board more oversight over election administration in the counties.

In June 2021, the U.S. Justice Department announced a lawsuit to overturn parts of Georgia’s law, claiming it violated the 1965 Voting Rights Act.

President Joe Biden and other Democrats falsely labeled the law “Jim Crow 2.0,” a reference to the era of racist laws and segregation in southern states that suggested an official effort to prevent blacks from voting.

In response to the Justice Department’s lawsuit against Georgia, Raffensperger requested any communications that may have influenced its decision to challenge his state’s law. After the department refused to comply with a request under the Freedom of Information Act, Raffensperger’s office sued.

“These documents should show the coordinated effort between liberal activists and the United States Department of Justice to use Georgia’s election reforms as a scapegoat for political losses,” Raffensperger said in a written statement Tuesday after the ruling.

“Considering how blatantly political the Biden lawsuit against Georgia’s commonsense election law was from the beginning, it’s no surprise they would stonewall our request for basic transparency,” Raffensperger said. “I’m gratified that the court agreed that there should be no secrecy between the Biden Justice Department and liberal activists, and I will continue to fight for truth and integrity in Georgia’s elections.”

Voter turnout increased in Georgia during the 2022 midterm elections, the first major test of the 2021 law.

In a 32-page opinion, Judge Trevor N. McFadden of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia denied the Justice Department’s motion to dismiss the case.

    Sounds like a reasonable request by Georgia's Secretary of State, but I'm not a lawyer.

    "What pedojoe [Biden] plugged as "Jim Crow 2.0" claiming it was racist (which doesn't even mean anything anymore) and sets the law back decades."

    Can anyone provide a link showing where Biden called Raffensperger's request that the Justice Department turn over certain info regarding this as "Jim Crow 2.0" or racist ???

    Do you read anything? It was the Georgia law he called "Jim Crow 2.0."


  3. by islander on March 4, 2023 7:45 am

    These are the parts of the Georgia law that Biden was referring to back in 2021;

    “Among the outrageous parts of this new state law, it ends voting hours early so working people can’t cast their vote after their shift is over,” Biden said. “It adds rigid restrictions on casting absentee ballots that will effectively deny the right to vote to countless voters. And it makes it a crime to provide water to voters while they wait in line — lines Republican officials themselves have created by reducing the number of polling sites across the state, disproportionately in Black neighborhoods.”

    I've provided a link so anyone can read about it.

    Jim Crow laws are state and local laws that make it harder for many Americans to exercise their Right to vote. This was done throughout the south after the civil war, they hurt blacks and the poor most.



    I’ve provide a link for anyone who wants can learn more about them.

    The article is about the EXACT opposite. You (yet again), missed the point. It was a fabrication of the truth to say what you said, and you bought off on it hook, line and sinker. From my guess it was from mopsie and sparkles. This actually is about DOJ being bought off by your left wing-nuts.

    YOU: "Mopie, I'd like to buy a clue. No? I can't buy one?"

    You're wasting my time.


  6. by HatetheSwamp on March 4, 2023 9:39 am

    isle! You're a geezer. You're over the hill. Retired.

    Your time is unwastable.


  7. by oldedude on March 4, 2023 9:46 am
    Again, Mopsey? can I buy a clue? You don't have one either?

    If I'm wasting your time, fine. But next time, bring some updated information.

    This from CBS, not nearly a "conservative" site. And although there's some liberal bias, it's a fairly good summary of the bill.

    In writing the bill, Georgia lawmakers debated several high-profile changes to voting laws, including banning Sunday voting, a tradition for Black voters following church services, and getting rid of no-excuse absentee voting, a measure passed by Republicans in 2005, neither of which made it into the new law.

    The effect of the new law on Georgia's 7.4 million voters will be mixed: it contains new restrictions on absentee voting, while at the same time expanding early voting opportunities. The law also formalizes provisions that were put in place to accommodate voters during the coronavirus pandemic and changes the composition of the state election board, which is charged with conducting all of Georgia's elections.

    The law does make significant changes to the way the state will run elections moving forward. It expands early voting access for some Georgia voters, adds an ID requirement for absentee voting, codifies the use of drop boxes with strict rules on how they can be used and sets new rules for state and local election officials.

    What you did was to take pedojoe's "word" for it without looking at facts. I used a traditionally liberal company so it easier for you to understand.

    Oh. FYSA? I understand what Jim Crow Laws are/were. They were created by dims in southern states to keep people from voting among many, many other things. (think Rosa Parks real hard).

    OD and HtS,
    You both can let go of your faux indignation. When Joe Biden used the phrase Jim Crow 2.0 he he did not say the bills were enacted. He was warning against there enactment. He was slamming Republicans for their proposed laws and the goals of the former president as he put it. That all the bills to limit voting did not get passed is good news. But we all know that it wasn’t for a lack of GOP trying.

    OKaaaaayyyyyy...... So this is how the whole thing started, and why MLB pulled out of the All Star game there. Either way, pedojoe made a statement, and kept using it even after it was passed.

    So, The law was signed March 25th.
    Georgia's 98-page election law, passed by a GOP-controlled legislature and signed by Republican Governor Brian Kemp at the end of March, has stirred a nationwide debate over voting rights in the wake of the 2020 election.

    On April fools day (which has been for over 2 years+) Psaki doubled down, as she did on the on the 2nd, 3rd, 5th, 6th and evaded the question on the 7th.

    That is a doubling down by the Administration. Media types will ONLY say what they are told to do.
