    We have a dozen forms of ID to vote and most of them are given for free by the govt. Individual states cannot make their rules for voting and voter ID’s.

    Voter lists are updated every year by both central and state election commissions (which are constitutionally appointed and authorized independent completely neutral entities where even our supreme courts cannot interfere). There are four cut off dates in a year to register to vote so that more young voters who turn 18 year are eligible to vote. (previously, Jan 1st used to be the cut off date, and if you are born on Jan 2nd, then you had to wait for one whole year to register to vote. Now January 1, April 1, July 1, and October 1 are cut off dates for every year to register so that waiting period is only 3 months max). And about a million polling stations (about one for every 1000 voters) and about 4 million voting machines (about one for every 250 voters). It’s a yuuge exercise.

    Sen. Rev. Warnock yesterday:

    “Fantastic news, Georgia:

    The Administration has finally heeded my call to rescind Georgia’s waiver
    that would have eliminated http://Healthcare.gov in our state
    and limited health care access for more than
    640K+ Georgians.

    Proud to have led this fight.”

    —–well done, yay!

    Remarks by President Biden at the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner

    Washington Hilton
    Washington, D.C.

    (April 30, 2022)

    “This is the first time a President attended this dinner in six years. (Applause.) It’s understandable.
    We had a horrible plague followed by two years of COVID. (Laughter and applause.)”

    “So, if you’re at home watching this and you’re wondering how to do that, just contact your favorite Fox News reporter. They’re all here, vaccinated and boosted — all of them. (Laughter and applause.)”

    “And, folks, I’m not really here to roast the GOP. That’s not my style. Besides, there’s nothing I can say about the GOP that Kevin McCarthy hasn’t already put on tape. (Laughter.)”

    “Tonight, we also honor the legacy of two historic reporters, and that is Alice Dunnigan and Ethel Payne. I’m glad you saw that tonight. (Applause.) I didn’t know you were doing that. These are the first Black women to be White House reporters who shattered convention to cover a segregated nation.”

    “We honor journalists killed, missing, imprisoned, detained, and tortured; covering war, exposing corruption, and holding leaders accountable.”

    “And, Trevor, the really good news is: Now you get to roast the President of the United States and, unlike in Moscow, you won’t go to jail. (Laughter.)”

      “The signals that the United States and President Biden are giving today are very important.
      These are recent strong steps in defense and financial support for Ukraine, as well as decisions on Lend-Lease – we are grateful for that,” he said.” (CNN)

    Pelosi, Congressional Delegation Statement on Visit to Kyiv, Ukraine

    MAY 1, 2022

    Rzeszow, Poland – Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Members of a Congressional delegation issued this statement following their visit to Kyiv, Ukraine. This visit is the first official Congressional delegation to have visited Ukraine following Russia’s invasion. The full delegation, which includes Chairman Jim McGovern, Chairman Gregory Meeks, Chairman Adam Schiff, Congresswoman Barbara Lee, Congressman Bill Keating and Congressman Jason Crow, will continue travel in southeast Poland and Warsaw.

    “Our Congressional Delegation had the solemn opportunity and extraordinary honor of meeting with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy and other top Ukrainian officials in Kyiv.

    “Our delegation traveled to Kyiv to send an unmistakable and resounding message to the entire world:
    America stands firmly with Ukraine. Our meeting with President Zelenskyy began with him thanking the United States for the substantial assistance that we have provided. He conveyed the clear need for continued security, economic and humanitarian assistance from the United States to address the devastating human toll taken on the Ukrainian people by Putin’s diabolic invasion – and our delegation proudly delivered the message that additional American support is on the way, as we work to transform President Biden’s strong funding request into a legislative package. Our delegation conveyed our respect and gratitude to President Zelenskyy for his leadership and our admiration of the Ukrainian people for their courage in the fight against Russia’s oppression.

    “Our delegation will now continue our travels in Poland, where we will meet with President Andrzej Duda and senior officials. We look forward to thanking our Polish allies for their dedication and humanitarian efforts.
    We will proudly convey the gratitude of America for the work of U.S. servicemembers and diplomats and other civilian leaders in Poland. When we return to the United States, we will do so further informed, deeply inspired and ready to do what is needed to help the Ukrainian people as they defend democracy for their nation and
    for the world.”

    FACTS ABOUT REP. JORDAN:

    Evidence mounts of GOP involvement in Trump election schemes
    By FARNOUSH AMIRI

    “Rioters who smashed their way into the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, succeeded — at least temporarily — in delaying the certification of Joe Biden’s election to the White House.

    Hours before, Rep. Jim Jordan had been trying to achieve the same thing.

    Texting with then-White House chief of staff Mark Meadows,
    a close ally and friend, at nearly midnight on Jan. 5,
    Jordan offered a legal rationale for what President Donald Trump was publicly demanding —
    that Vice President Mike Pence, in his ceremonial role presiding over the electoral count, somehow assert the authority to reject electors from Biden-won states.”

    New Details Underscore House G.O.P. Role in Jan. 6 Planning
    A court filing and newly disclosed text messages provide additional evidence of how closely some fervent pro-Trump lawmakers worked with the White House on efforts to overturn the election.

    By Luke Broadwater and Alan Feuer

    “WASHINGTON — It was less than two weeks before President Donald J. Trump’s staunchest allies in Congress would have what they saw as their last chance to overturn the 2020 election, and Representative Scott Perry, Republican of Pennsylvania, was growing anxious.

    “Time continues to count down,” he wrote in a text message to Mark Meadows, then the White House chief of staff, adding: “11 days to 1/6 and 25 days to inauguration. We gotta get going!”

    It has been clear for more than a year that ultraconservative members of Congress were deeply involved in attempts to keep Mr. Trump in power: They joined baseless lawsuits, spread the lie of widespread election fraud and were among the 147 Republicans who voted on Jan. 6, 2021, against certifying President Biden’s victory in at least one state.

    But in a court filing and in text messages obtained by CNN, new pieces of evidence have emerged in recent days fleshing out the degree of their involvement with the Trump White House in strategy sessions, at least one of which included discussions about encouraging Mr. Trump’s supporters to march to the Capitol on Jan. 6, despite warnings of potential violence. Some continued to push to try to keep Mr. Trump in office even after a mob of his supporters attacked the complex.
