Obama once said that he would be President for a third time if he could just call the shots behind the scenes with someone else as the frontman. The joke sounds more like reality every day, especially when Joe Biden continues to fill his administration with controversial Obama-linked appointees.
Now a Washington Free Beacon report states that “President Joe Biden put former national security adviser Susan Rice in charge of directing hundreds of federal agencies and departments to expand access to mail-in voting.” She will be the Stacey Abrams, only the federal version.
Biden’s executive order gives Susan Rice the new title of assistant to the president for domestic policy. According to the report, it means she will be “in charge of soliciting strategies from federal agencies to produce “relevant information” on expanded voting registration procedures.”
The order requires federal agencies to create and submit “a strategic plan outlining the ways identified under this review that the agency can promote voter registration and voter participation.” Federal agencies have 200 days to complete the task under the order.
“Agencies shall consider ways to expand citizens’ opportunities to register to vote and to obtain information about, and participate in, the electoral process. The head of each agency shall evaluate ways in which the agency can, as appropriate and consistent with applicable law, promote voter registration and voter participation,” states the order.

The order is so bold as to urge federal agencies to use “approved, nonpartisan third-party organizations and State officials to provide voter registration services on agency premises.”
It shouldn’t shock the American people that the Democrats would want to bolster mail-in ballots. The record numbers showing up in counting centers caused Biden to be installed into office. It only makes sense that they would want to all but ensure this method of voting is available to them in the future.
States rights advocates argue that Biden’s orders go too far. Legal Affairs Director for the Foundation for Government Accountability, Chase Martin, argues that Biden’s order is “an overly broad federal mandate.” He said, “the order is about inflicting the federal government’s will on the states. There’s a ton of room for this process to be abused.”
Martin continued, “The Supreme Court has constantly punted to the states and allowed states to create their own election systems as long as they respect the Constitution. As long as there isn’t a specific federal law on the issue, states are free to create their own processes, strengthen their own voter integrity systems, develop measures to get out the votes, the administration process.”
According to the report, “The Brennan Center of Justice found that as of mid-February 2021, 43 states are considering bills that seek to limit mail-in voting or impose voter ID requirements on in-person voting.” If 43 out of the 50 states limit the use of mail-in ballots in their election process, how is the Supreme Court going to punt this one?
