More Than 100 Corporate Leaders Meet To Plan Fight Against Election Security Bills

Over the weekend, more than 100 corporate executives and leaders met on Zoom to discuss ways to take action against the new election security laws being discussed across the country, including the law passed in Georgia last month, according to the Washington Post.

“Executives from major airlines, retailers and manufacturers — plus at least one NFL owner — talked about potential ways to show they opposed the legislation, including by halting donations to politicians who support the bills and even delaying investments in states that pass the restrictive measures,” people on the call told the Washington Post.

The Post reported that the meeting was largely led by “Kenneth Chenault, the former chief executive of American Express, and Kenneth Frazier, the chief executive of Merck, who told the executives that it was important to keep fighting what they viewed as discriminatory laws on voting.”

“A statement could come early this week, the people said and would build on one that 72 Black executives signed last month in the wake of changes to Georgia’s voting laws,” The Wall Street Journal reported. “Mr. Chenault told executives on the call that several leaders had signaled they would sign on, including executives at PepsiCo Inc., PayPal Holdings Inc., T. Rowe Price Group Inc. and Hess Corp., among others, according to the people.”

The election security law passed in Georgia has generated controversy after lies from President Biden and other leftists, who have falsely claimed the bill restricts legitimate voting and “ends voting hours early.”

An analysis of the bill by Stephen Fowler of Georgia Public Broadcasting found that “One of the biggest changes in the bill would expand early voting access for most counties, adding an additional mandatory Saturday and formally codifying Sunday voting hours as optional.”

Charles Stewart III, an election expert at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, also examined Georgia’s election security bill on behalf of the Washington Post, and he claimed the bill expanded early voting.

    It’s amazing to me all the controversy on making elections more secure. Although the main stream media and most democrats and liberals are perfectly ok with elections being susceptible to fraud and corruption. Hopefully, the election of 2020 will go down in history as the most indecisive victory of a candidate who has no qualifications at all for being a leader of a country, except for being able to hug, kiss, and fondle girls and women of all ages, and, oh yes, he likes for youngsters to go underwater in a pool and rub his hairy legs. Check out you tube video on Joe’s hairy legs. Listen to this weird sociopath brag about this. Yuck! This is not a person we should have as this country’s leader. God help us all!

    How can these corporate executives be so stupid and yet achieve their positions? Have any of them actually read the bill? I doubt it. They are cowards afraid of the cancel culture.

    The usual Wall Street parasites along with pro sports: as for Pepsi what’s their beef? And the airlines, they are setting themselves up for failure, with the hope that they will be bailed out by the government should they fail.

Sen. Sinema Appears To Quickly Pull A U-Turn After Seeing Biden

Published

Joe Biden
Kyrsten Sinema

Senator Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) – who dealt a potentially fatal blow to the Democrats’ election reform legislation by refusing President Biden’s push to reform Senate filibuster rules – appears to have avoided Biden as he spoke to reporters after meeting with Senate Democrats to the legislation.

In a video posted on YouTube, as Biden speaks to reporters, Sinema can be seen emerging from a Senate room in the background. As soon as Sinema appears to see Biden, she turns around and walks in the other direction.

Under current Senate rules, at least 60 senators would need to support Biden’s election reform legislation for it to pass. With the 50-50 split in the Senate, Democrats would need at least 10 Republicans to support the bill for it to have any chance of passing. In order to bypass this, Biden has pushed for eliminating the filibuster, which would effectively allow Democrats to ram through their legislation.

On Thursday, Sinema announced that she did not support eliminating the filibuster to allow the bills to pass through the Senate.

“There’s no need for me to restate my longstanding support for the 60-vote threshold to pass legislation. There’s no need for me to restate its role in protecting our country from wild reversals of federal policy,” Sinema said, according to Fox News. “This week’s harried discussions about Senate rules are but a poor substitute for what I believe could have and should have been a thoughtful public debate at any time over the past year.”

“But what is the legislative filibuster, other than a tool that requires new federal policy to be broadly supported by senators, representing the broader cross-section of Americans… Demands to eliminate this threshold from whichever party holds the fleeting majority amount to a group of people separated on two sides of a canyon, shouting that solution to their colleagues,” she continued.

“These bills help treat the symptoms of the disease, but they do not fully address the disease itself. And while I continue to support these bills, I will not support separate actions that worsen the underlying disease of division affecting our country,” Sinema added.

“Some have given up on the goal of erasing our divisions and uniting Americans. I have not,” Sinema stated. “I’ve worked hard to demonstrate in my public service, the value of working with unlikely allies to get results.”
