Nets Censor Senate Hearing on Shady Voting Bill to Nationalize U.S. Elections


With the broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) pushing lies about Republicans supposedly trying to “roll back voting rights” and bring back Jim Crow laws, it was obviously suspicious when these same networks refused to cover the Senate’s Wednesday hearing on S. 1, a bill Democrats claimed would put an end to these GOP machinations and be the savior of voting rights.

In reality, it was a sweeping piece of legislation that stripped the states of their constitutional right to run their own elections and handed it over to the federal government. But instead of reporting on what would be an “attack on our democracy” if the parties were reversed, ABC’s World News Tonight talked about the weather while the CBS Evening News and NBC Nightly News pushed the gender pay gap myth.

Luckily, Fox News Channel’s Special Report wasn’t interested in keeping the Democratic plot a secret from their viewers. Congressional correspondent Chad Pergram was on the story and he showcased many soundbites from the hearing, including this one featuring Nebraska Senator Deb Fischer calling out the crux of the bill:

PERGRAM: Republicans note the Constitution says voting methods are left to the states.

FISCHER: Why in the world would we give up state control of our elections to the federal government?

To highlight how serious the debate over S. 1 was, Pergram and anchor Bret Baier pointed out the significance of having both Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) testify as witnesses during the hearing.

 

 

“A rare sighting in the Senate today, both the majority leader and the minority leader appearing as special expert witnesses. It’s all part of the debate over the democratic plans that Republicans say will nationalize elections,” Baier announced at the top of the segment.

Pergram added: “It’s been seven years since Senate majority leader and minority leader both testified at the same hearing. It speaks volumes about why this voting measure consumes the two sides.”

Delving into more of the arguments made by Republicans, Pergram reported: “Republicans contend this bill enhances voter fraud. It requires states offer more than two weeks of early voting and permit online registration. But the bill’s supporters say they don’t have problems back home.”

And according to Pergram, Democrats were having an issue with party cohesion because of the bill. “Everyone is watching West Virginia Democrat Joe Manchin. He says the bill has good things, but worries about stoking mistrust in the voting system,” he said. “Even if Democrats stick together, they lack the votes to kill the filibuster. Democrats are now mulling nixing the filibuster on all bills, be it for guns or S. 1. Both big promises to liberals.”

This was all part of the broadcast networks’ intent to cover-up any and all Democratic Party shadiness when it came to elections. Two days before blacking out the hearing, the networks ignored their plot to steal the House seat from Congresswoman Mariannette Miller-Meeks (R-IA).

This cover-up of the Democratic Party’s plot to nationalize U.S. elections was made possible because of lucrative sponsorships from Cadillac on ABC, Crest on CBS, and Ford Motor Company on NBC. Their contact information is linked so you can tell them about the biased news they fund.

CHAD PERGRAM: It’s been seven years since Senate majority leader and minority leader both testified at the same hearing. It speaks volumes about why this voting measure consumes the two sides.

SEN. CHUCK SCHUMER (D-NY): We’re going to hear that this bill – gasp – register Americans to vote is a Democratic power grab.

SEN. MITCH MCCONNELL (R-KY): This is clearly an effort by one party to rewrite the rules of our political system.

SCHUMER: Voting rights are sacrosanct, they must be inviable.

MCCONNELL: It’s an invitation to chaos.

PERGRAM: Democrats say that’s exactly why this bill is necessary.

SEN. AMY KLOBUCHAR (D-MN): Let me tell you what chaos is. [Transition] Chaos is purging names of longtime voters from a voter list.

PERGRAM: Democrats fear Republican state legislatures curbing voting access.

SCHUMER: The shadow of Donald Trump falls dark and large over this caucus. When they act like that.

PERGRAM: Republicans contend this bill enhances voter fraud. It requires states offer more than two weeks of early voting and permit online registration. But the bill’s supporters say they don’t have problems back home.

SEN. ANGUS KING (I-ME): We have same-day registration, no-excuse absentee voting, no voter I.D., and no fraud.

PERGRAM: Republicans note the Constitution says voting methods are left to the states.

SEN. DEB FISCHER (R-NE): Why in the world would we give up state control of our elections to the federal government?

PERGRAM: The bill is S. 1, as in Senate bill 1. Republicans argue that says a lot about Democrats’ priorities.

SEN. TED CRUZ (R-TX): It’s keeping Democrats in power for a hundred years.

PERGRAM: Everyone is watching West Virginia Democrat Joe Manchin. He says the bill has good things, but worries about stoking mistrust in the voting system.

Even if Democrats stick together, they lack the votes to kill the filibuster. Democrats are now mulling nixing the filibuster on all bills, be it for guns or S1. Both big promises to liberals. Bret.

BAIER: Chad Pergram live on Capitol Hill. Chad, thanks.
