Democrat-run non-profit Demos seeks to take over the USPS to make voting by mail permanent and encouraged.

Thank You Sister, RW

“O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before the LORD our maker.”  Psalms 95:6 (KJV) 

“Vote-by-mail now, vote-by-mail forever,” is the rallying cry of today’s left.

I’ve already documented how the Center for Tech and Civic Life (CTCL), the poisonous well of “Zuck bucks,” has pivoted from privatizing elections to getting Uncle Sam to pay for all-mail elections, starting this year. The $80 million allocated to that campaign by the left-wing donor and partisan documentary film producer Jeff Skoll may seem extreme, but it’s a bargain compared to what CTCL hopes to accomplish: $10 billion in taxpayer funding for expanding vote by mail, half of it for changing the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) into a mail-in ballot machine.

But that’s only half of the story. Meet Demos, the tax-exempt group trying to transform the federal government into one gigantic get-out-the-vote machine for the Democratic Party.

Demos is a think tank with ties to Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Masachussets, the Green New Deal, and court-packing efforts. Miles Rapaport, who led the group from 2001 to 2014, was active with the Students for a Democratic Society in the 1960s, and Demos’s founder, David Callahan, now advises “progressive” mega-donors on giving to liberal causes via the website Blue Tent.

Before 2020, Demos wanted a constitutional amendment mandating automatic and same-day voter registration, restoring felon voting rights, abolishing the Electoral College, and granting statehood to Washington, D.C. The 2020 election only emboldened the group, and no wonder; its last president, Sabeel Rahman, is now senior counsel in the powerful Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs in the Office of Management and Budget.

Demos now demands the Biden administration “direct federal agencies to provide voter registration services” targeting “Black and brown” and “low-income Americans,” code for likely Democratic voters:

Integrating voter registration into routine transactions with federal agencies has the potential to add millions of eligible voters to the registration rolls—a vital step towards dismantling white supremacy in our democracy and building a more representative government.

What does this look like in practice? Imagine receiving a vote-by-mail application when applying for a federal education loan, when registering for Obamacare, when a Native American in Colorado and Arizona seeks treatment at the Indian Health Services, when immigrants are naturalized, when the Department of Housing and Urban Development offers rental assistance to the poor, or when receiving Social Security benefits. The list is nearly endless, which is why it’s such a powerful tool.

Demos also wants to use federal get-out-the-vote to “end prison-based gerrymandering” in Republican states and remake the nonpartisan Election Assistance Commission, which provides expert guidance on election administration to the states, into a voter registration machine. All of it is to be enforced by a weaponized U.S. Department of Justice that would make Lois Lerner’s IRS look evenhanded. That’s on top of passing the extreme John Lewis Voting Rights Act (H.R. 4), the Democrats’ latest effort to control state-run elections.

President Joseph Biden is following through on Demos’s demands. On March 7, 2021, the anniversary of Bloody Sunday, when Alabama state troopers beat civil rights protesters in 1965, the president signed an executive order directing federal agencies to begin dis…
