I call elected to attention another unconstitutional scheme by this sitting president: Takeover of State Elections under the guise of ‘critical infrastructure’.

Among the enumerated powers of federal government, control of state elections by a sitting president is not among them.

Pertinent Law: Article I, Section 4

“The Times, Places and Manner of holding Elections for Senators and Representatives, shall be prescribed in each State by the Legislature thereof; but the Congress may at any time by Law make or alter such Regulations …”

This corrupt presidential administration’s  track record for lawlessness is legendary. I remind you how he used the IRS to target and harass conservative American groups and persons who publicly oppose him. Shall we roll over and play dead to allow this unconstitutional power grab corrupt state elections? I say, no.

Neither Congress nor the Texas State Legislature has authorized the DHS to take control of state elections.

Contact your elected representatives to voice your opposition to Jeh Johnson’s labeling of state elections ‘critical infrastructure’.

Barack Obama attempted to take over restrooms in public schools in order to allow men into women’s restrooms and dressing rooms. His Justice Department refuses to enforce current laws such as firearms laws and immigration laws. This is cause for alarm and cause for action by our citizens.
