The Big Money Behind the Big Lie is what The New Yorker called its latest article about the ultra-right Heritage Foundation. If the Republicans in the states’ government succeed, huge swaths of the American people will be completely blocked from voting. This is now a war against American voters, but we are fighting back.

The Brennan Center reported on how extensive and inclusive that war against American voters has become:

‘Between January 1 and July 14, 2021, at least18 states enacted 30 laws that restrict access to the vote. These laws make mail voting and early voting more difficult, impose harsher voter ID requirements, and make faulty voter purges more likely, among other things. More than 400 bills with provisions that restrict voting access have been introduced in 49 states in the 2021 legislative sessions.’

The Democrats have been sending a strong message to the U.S. Senators and Representatives that the “rich and powerful…are determined to win.” The NewYorker continued:

‘Donald Trump’s attacks on democracy are being promoted by rich and powerful conservative groups that are determined to win at all costs.’

Congress and Political Reporter for The New Republic, Grace Segers tweeted about how protesting Democratic voters, Texas state, and federal politicians have taken the fight to the American people. They have been protesting across from the capitol:

‘Meanwhile, across from the Capitol, some Democratic senators and state legislators are rallying in favor of voting rights and advocating for passing the For the People Act. Senator Warnock (D-GA) calls efforts to restrict voting rights “the delta variant of Jim Crow.”‘

Senators and state legislators have been “advocating for passing the For The People Act,” because without the right to vote, there will be no Democratic laws. Instead, the U.S. will slide into an Autocracy led by Donald Trump, a fascist government:

‘As soon as the Fox News Decision Desk called the state for Biden, at 11:20 p.m. on November 3rd, Trump demanded that the network “reverse this!” When Fox held firm, he declared “This is a major fraud.”’

The Recount tweeted about Senator Raphael Warnock (D-GA), who has a voice reminiscent of Martin Luther King Jr. He addressed the crowd of protesters:

The New Yorker added more details about the “Fraudit” in Arizona:

‘The Cyber Ninjas audit was supposed to conclude in May, but at the company’s request Fann has repeatedly extended it. On July 28th, the auditors completed a hand recount, but they are still demanding access to the computer routers used by Maricopa County and also want to scrutinize images of mail-in-ballot envelopes.’

The U.S. Department of Justice warned that “private actors who have neither experience nor expertise in handling” ballots could face prosecution for failing to follow federal audit rules:

‘Trump, meanwhile, has fixated on Arizona’s audit, describing it as a step toward his “reinstatement.” On July 24th, he appeared in Phoenix for a “Rally to Protect Our Elections,” and said, “I am not the one trying to undermine American democracy—I’m the one trying to save American democracy.” Predicting that the audit would vindicate him, he rambled angrily for nearly two hours about having been cheated, calling the election “a scam—the greatest crime in history.”’
