Florida Follows Georgia’s Lead, Tightening Voting Laws After 2020 Debacle

Could these laws be the key to preventing another January 6th?

While the election of 2020 did eventually end in the inauguration of Joe Biden as the 46th President of the United States, in many ways, it’s not over yet.

The fallout of this contest will live with us for some time still, particularly as we examine the ways in which ordinary Americans were excited and agitated to the point of believing that the election had been stolen, and that their only option was to commit violence at the US Capitol.

In order to prevent future elections from being perceived as less-than-secure, states such as Georgia are beefing up their precautionary measures – but at the cost of the liberal left accusing them of disenfranchising voters that would normally sway to the Democrats.

Now, Florida lawmakers are preparing to take similar heat as they move to secure their elections as well.

The Florida Legislature passed a sweeping election bill Thursday night that would make significant changes to mail voting in the state after a record number of Floridians voted by mail in the 2020 election.

Governor Ron DeSantis said on Fox News Thursday night that he plans to sign the bill. If he does, Florida would become the latest state to overhaul its election system in the wake of the 2020 election. Republican lawmakers around the country have proposed significant changes to the way elections are conducted and some have already been signed into law, including Georgia, Iowa and Montana.

The bill would add ID requirements for voters requesting to vote by mail. Voters would have to provide either their driver’s license or state ID number or the last four digits of their Social Security Number when asking for a mail ballot. The bill would also require this information to register to vote or to update a voter’s registration.

And that’s not all.

The bill would also make voters request mail ballots more frequently. Florida has allowed mail ballot requests to last for two general election cycles, but the new bill would require voters to request a mail ballot every general election cycle.

While the Democrats will almost certainly tell us that this is another racist ruse to raise the political prospects of Republicans, the truth of the matter is that beefing up election security could help to prevent the sort of doubt and despair that sent insurrectionists into the Capitol back in January.

Tokyo Woke No Mo’: IOC Bans BLM Apparel for Olympics

…and it was the players’ idea!

Published

Over the course of the last several years, Americans have been inundated with the melding of sports and politics, as athletes from around the nation continue to express their political and cultural beliefs while on the job. For many, this has been an annoyance and not an elevation of the game, as Americans continues to complain about their “escape” from the real world now being tainted with a whole lot of drama from the real world. That won’t be the case in Tokyo, however, as the International Olympic Committee looks to put the kibosh on virtue signaling.  Olympics athletes will not be allowed to wear “Black Lives Matter” apparel during ceremonies at the upcoming Tokyo Olympic games, according to new rules posted by the International Olympics Committee (IOC). The IOC revealed its newest policy changes last month, noting that no political demonstrations will be allowed on the field of play. And IOC officials have since confirmed that the rules also ban any use of Black Lives Matter imagery, logos, apparel, slogans, and activism, according to TMZ Sports. The move came after the IOC polled the participating athletes on the subject. The IOC claimed that its prohibitions on athlete activism came after a poll found that a “majority” of the 3,500 athletes polled favored the ban. “A very clear majority of athletes said that they think it’s not appropriate to demonstrate or express their views on the field of play, at the official ceremonies, or at the podium,” said IOC Athletes’ Commission chief Kirsty Coventry. “So our recommendation is to preserve the podium, field of play, and official ceremonies from any kind of protest or demonstrations or acts perceived as such,” Coventry added. Given the high profile nature of the IOC’s stance, it will be interesting to see just how many athletes attempt…
