The whole point behind the Department of Justice (DOJ) is that it is supposed to enforce federal laws and administer justice. But when you redefine the traditional use of the word “justice” to mean “social justice,” the DOJ begins doing something entirely different. It becomes irredeemably partisan. The DOJ would begin persecuting people for thinking the wrong things and for opposing the people in power. It would also help the party in power with voter outreach. As absurd as it sounds, the DOJ has been helping the Democrats with voter registration drives since Joe Biden took over.
In March of 2021 – just a few weeks after Joe Biden was illegitimately sworn in behind barbed wire fencing and 40,000 armed troops – he signed Executive Order 14019. That order directed every federal agency, including the DOJ, to come with a comprehensive plan for itself to “promote voter registration and voter participation.” Biden didn’t have to add the words “for the sole benefit of the Democrat Party” to the Executive Order, because all federal agencies just assume that’s what the boss already meant when a Democrat is in charge.
It’s like when Obama told the IRS to hold 501c4 entities up for greater scrutiny. He didn’t have to tell Lois Lerner to only target conservative 501c4s. She already knew.
And so, when Joe Biden told federal agencies to “promote voter registration,” he meant “promote Democrat voter registration” and everyone knew it.
Agencies were supposed to submit their plans to Susan Rice at the White House. She’s the mouthpiece for Barack Obama who has been running the White House the whole time that Captain Alzheimer’s has been “in charge.”
Government watchdog groups have since filed Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests to see the DOJ’s plan to promote voter registration. One of those groups is the Florida-based Foundation for Government Accountability (FGA). The DOJ responded to the FGA’s request for documents by completely ignoring them. Attorney General Merrick Garland never turned over a single piece of paper.
The FGA filed its first document request with the DOJ in August of 2021. All they got was dead silence. They didn’t even get a letter back telling them to buzz off. This silence and inaction went on for more than 200 days. The FGA then filed a lawsuit against Merrick Garland in April of this year, to try to force the release of the DOJ’s illegal voter outreach program.
In July, a federal district court ordered the DOJ to immediately comply with the document request, prior to the 2022 midterm elections.
Remember: Biden’s Executive Order called on each federal agency to submit A COMPLETED PLAN to Susan Rice. As of September 8th, the DOJ had turned over 135 pages of heavily blacked-out documents. But it did not include DOJ’s finalized 15-page plan that it sent to Susan Rice. We’re less than three weeks out from the 2022 midterms, and we still have no idea what the Department of Justice has been doing to “promote voter registration” for the past 18 months. There’s no accountability and no oversight, and the DOJ refuses to comply with a court order. That inspires confidence, doesn’t it?
Make no mistake about it, the DOJ’s actions here are completely illegal under at least two different federal statutes. (And not just the DOJ. We have to assume every federal agency is doing this.)
The Hatch Act bans government employees from engaging in certain partisan political activities. Voter outreach on behalf of one political party would definitely qualify as a Hatch Act violation. Federal agencies are supposed to be non-partisan.
The DOJ’s actions are also likely a violation of the Antideficiency Act. Biden’s executive order says that federal agencies can coordinate with “approved third-party vendors” in order to carry out its voter outreach efforts. The Antideficiency Act prohibits federal agencies from spending money Congress has not authorized and prohibits using “approved” third-party entities like Biden’s order directs them to do.
The whole thing is illegal. But that’s what the Department of Justice has been doing when it’s not harassing parents at school board meetings or arresting hymn singers outside of abortion clinics. The DOJ’s participation in the stolen 2020 election was covert, but it still happened. Now the DOJ’s participation in the 2022 midterms is overt. We know they’re doing it. And hopefully Republicans in Congress are watching and plan to do something about it.
One final thought: If Merrick Garland – the nation’s top law enforcement official – is refusing to comply with a court order, isn’t that grounds for impeachment?
