Determined not to see United Nations officials make a return visit to snoop around the state’s polling sites during election time, the Tennessee Senate passed a measure earlier this week barring the practice, according to KnoxBlogs.com.
Congress, take note: The bill is one sentence long.
“Any representative of the United Nations appearing without a treaty ratified by the United States senate stating that the United Nations can monitor elections in this state, shall not monitor elections in this state,” the measure says.
The bill is awaiting Gov. Bill Haslam’s signature.
There was no debate. Senate approved the bill 23-2. The House earlier approved the measure 75-20 after some discussion. House sponsor Rep. Micah Van Huss characterized the measure as an assertion of the state and nation’s sovereignty.
U.N. inspectors were sent to polling places in Tennessee and other states during the 2012 elections after liberal organizations filed grievances over newly-enacted election laws, according to The Hill.
The U.N.-affiliated Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe sent 44 poll watchers to various locations around the country, and Tennessee attracted their scrutiny because of its new voter ID law.
“Starting in 2012, registered voters in Tennessee will have to show government-issued photo identification in order to cast a ballot at the polls,” the Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security’s website states.
The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, the NAACP and the American Civil Liberties Union sent a letter to the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe, warning of “a coordinated political effort to disenfranchise millions of Americans — particularly traditionally disenfranchised groups like minorities,” according to The Hill.
Sorry, Ms. Lerner, Trey Gowdy nailed it: ‘Brought BOOM to the ROOM!’
Conservatives weren’t pleased.
“These activist groups sought assistance not from American sources, but from the United Nations. The United Nations has no jurisdiction over American elections,” True the Vote’s founder and president, Catherine Engelbrecht, told The Hill at the time
Although only a relative few U.N. observers were sent, their interference in the polling process was an affront to America’s national sovereignty.
Are we heading toward a one-world order? Not those living in Tennessee.
