  1. I’m confused into why does it need to be re authorized America has a lot of dumb rules. This seems like a US VS THEM PLOY DO NOT TRUST MSNBC THEY SNUB ANDREW YANG AND PLAY PARTY LINES

  2. Soooo it surprised you that Republicans hate voters and fair elections?? They're absolute tampons that shouldn't surprise anyone.

  3. If Democrats wanted fair elections we would have voter ID laws. Democrats use the racist excuse that black people for some reason dont have ID.

  4. Another hit piece by MSNBC. No surprise there. The Voting Rights Act is a very complicated piece of legislation. The "traditional" anti-discrimination provisions are PERMANENT. Hovever, there were "special provisions" (including "coverage formula") added to the Act which originally expired after 7 years. In 1975, the special provisions were extended for another 7 years. In 1982, the coverage formula was for 25 years, but no changes were made to the coverage formula, and in 2006, the coverage formula was again extended for 25 years.
    Throughout its history, the coverage formula remained controversial because it singled out certain jurisdictions for scrutiny, most of which were in the deep South. In Shelby County v. Holder (2013), the Supreme Court declared the coverage formula unconstitutional because the criteria used were outdated and violated principles of equal state sovereignty and federalism.  The other special provisions that are dependent on the coverage formula, such as the Section 5 preclearance requirement, remain valid law. However, without a valid coverage formula, these provisions are unenforceable.
    Section 5 of the Act requires that certain "covered jurisdictions" receive federal approval, known as "preclearance", BEFORE implementing any changes to their election laws. In other words, the Feds have to approve changes to state voting laws before they occur.
    THIS is what the extension of the Voting Rights Act of 1964 is about. It's not about discrimination- is about control.

  5. IF you have been arrested repeatedly for acts that oppose our laws then you apparently do not understand them and have no right to vote for lawmakers. This is another liberal sham against a strong America.

  6. Bipartisan support for over 5 decades and now; divide and conquer at the behest of the Russians from this administration.

  7. That’s because the bill takes away your states rights, this should be opposed by both sides because the title of the bill is a lie, the bill itself is federal tyranny, whichever party supports this is the tyrannical one.


  9. Put in for leave for Nov. 3 2020 or make sure you early vote. I guarantee there be some shenanigans by the gerrymanderers. The voting districts should look like checkerboard squares, all about the same size instead of the Lines of Nazca.

  10. Our country is dying from auto-immune disease! It's sad to see the legislative branch's daily struggle for common sense laws, the executive branch being controlled by criminals and the judiciary branch totally skewed along party lines. If a person cannot use his brains, his hearts and his limbs, can we still call that the greatest human being in the world but by hallucination?!?

  11. Get rid of your state representative in Congress. They have lied about caring for the rights of their constituents and clearly show they have no intention of representing the state by the constitution. Get them out!

  12. And Brian we’ll be voted out..
    Yes they all did for your rights and yet you don’t appreciate anything that they’ve done you just whine and cry poor me I’m black poor me I’m black and I want everything

  13. 1:09
    This is conscious demographic replacement and a declaration of war against white people.
    If you think trump was "extreme", than you have no idea what is coming down the line with such a disgusting agenda against white people.

  14. It's 2019, and Democrats still believe that racism is systemically implanted in the foundation of our government.

    Hint: Democrats have always been racially biased, whether positive or negative. Just law doesn't recognize persons.

  15. Ok, so all this does essentially prevents states from exacting new voting laws, because in 2013 Congress was supposed to have a standard of coverage formula to understand who and who can’t vote which didn’t happen.

  16. We are in a "times of Jacob's Troubles." This move has always been in the back of the minds of a majority of Southern and conservative white Republicans.
    Perhaps this could be one of the reasons why Trump has given the Law Enforcement community over 600 million dollars to ensure that any form of political resistance will be met with force; primarily lethal in nature.
    We are observing the final phase of what was a Demo- cra-cy or Satanic order. Since the days of Ronald Reagan the Repiblican Party has tampered with the idea of either abolishing voting rights, Affirmative Action, Civil Rights, voter suppression,gerry-mandering, eliminating welfare, refusing to increase the minimum wage, and reforming Social Security. All in an effort to restore their Republic to some era where white men ruled while everyone else lived in fear and intimidation.
    Methodically we are observing how William Barr, the head of the DOJ informed the black and brown communities that the " police are the military and the military are the police." If we choose not to give them the respect he believes they deserve, we could loose our protective services from the police. These inbreds are in desperation mode.
    A changing of the guard is gradually aiming its way in their direction. They see it and these measures of Totali-tarianism will only arise for so long. Again, this won't work either.
    The owner of this once beautiful "Vineyard" is returning and their will be some serious House Cleaning. I have to admit it; you people have run out of time.
    Your six thousand year old wicked, experiment is coming to an end.
    The dragon has given power to the "Beast". " And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, " Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?"
    And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months. 3& 1/2 years.
    And he opened his mouth I blasphemy against God, to blasphemy His name and His Tabernacle and them that feel in heaven.
    And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to over-come them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues and nations.
    And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the earth.
    If any man hath an ear let him hear.
    Revelations 13:18; " Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred, threescore and six "
    It took 600 hundred years to create this hybrid while living on the island of Patmos. He has been given six thousand years to rule.We have been given 60 years by the grace of TMH to get our act together and come out from amongst them. And now, it's time for judgement.
    This beast is fighting every way possible to avoid his fate. However he tries to fight against it, his fate is sealed; he is doomed.
    Again, no politician or educator or preacher from any Evangelical circles can impede of hinder what's coming. He that leadeth into captivity,shall go into captivity.
    These hybrids are going to be captive slaves. Our captive slaves.
    Isaiah 14: 1-3; " For the Lord will have mercy on Jacob, and will yet choose Isreal, and set them in their own land: and the strangers shall be joined with them, and they shall cleave to the house of Jacob.
    And the people shall take them, and bring them to their place: and the house of Israel shall possess them in the land of the Lord for servants and handmaid's: and they shall take them captives, whose captives they were; and they shall rule over their oppressors.
    And it shall come to pass in that day that the Lord shall give thee rest from thy sorrow, and from thy fear, and from the hard bondage wherein thou was made to serve."
    God has a plan.

  17. Americans can you not see your democracy is being taken away from you!?! for 2/ nearly 3 years people have been saying ( myself included) this is happening and various Trumpets have come on and hurled abuse at myself and others -please look at history – Weimar republic for example and DO something while you have a chance. The 2 branches of your Gov are pretty firmly in Trumpy's pocket – if you do not address this now it will be too late-T will designate his daughter to succeed him if he gets half the chance and I would be very surprised if he gave up the Presidency after 2 wins-even if he is already a semi-drooling cabbage.

  18. This is not to enforce voting rights act of 1965, it is to amend and add terminology so the government can regulate specific states through violations. Nothing to do with race and all law abiding citizens have the right to vote. Majority rule isn't how this works

  19. she looked at his wikipedia. LO nother fu##ing L. listen here stupids…..dont watch this garbage .they are only buying time till they finalize their living spaces underground.

  20. Rethugliklans are lowest breeds of life that was put in office. They're STILL trying to keep their feet on the necks of African Americans by opposing the rights given to us. VOTE ALL THOSE SOB'S OUT!😠

  21. Interesting how the democrats kicked every presidential candidate from N.Y. and California to the curb except the two billionaires that bought their way in.😂

  22. Rebublicans ALL KNOW
    They will be rigging,
    Gerrymandering, changing rules……
    LIEING….Always …LIEING

  23. The 2020VotingBLUE tsunami has just grown exponentially🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊

  24. Our vote will not count never has & never will ! These people have no shame. GOP shame on you. Won't be very long before we are in CHAINS AGAIN!!

  25. What?!?!? Why is this even a thing? Why are we even voting on this? What are the EVIL republicans doing? This is untenable. Every EVIL republican who voted to cancel the vote for minorities seriously need to be voted out of our system. We are looking in the hideous face of true EVIL folks!!!

  26. More evidence that all GOP candidates must be voted out in 2020. They have blatantly put party before country and will continue to do so until they're held accountable.

  27. Joe Biden insulted and disrespected a voter in Iowa and insulted an immigration protester at a town hall event. And to think that joe Biden is the democrat candidate MSNBC wants to be the 2020 nominee is hilarious

  28. Here goes the traitors in the GOP bleeding that Russia red again.. The GOP are ENEMIES of the people and should be dealt with accordingly. Enemies of our DEMOCRACY!!! DIE TRUMP!! DEATH TO THE GOP!!!

  29. The Republicans are experts, at Gerrymandering! Take the Republicans in the state of NC, for example…There were more Democratic votes, to win control of their State Legislature. But, due to GERRYMANDERING, they were able to keep the majority. These are some of the worst, in all of American politics. So, NO, I don't believe the Republicans engage in fair elections at all !!!! Especially, since they, also, engaged in Nationwide voter suppression in the last midterm elections.

  30. Your family hid from the democrats as they are the KKK and you vote for them today ???? Have you ever wondered why the Black race were Republicans before that time , like the civil war and Lincoln as a Republican FREEING the black race ???? How were they able to change the black vote to democrat that led them to poverty ?????

  31. This is why we need to arm ourselves against the tyrants like trump & his supporters. They are the enemy of freedom & democracy.

  32. They want a dictatorship,they want their fancy cars,stake dinners and powerful people representing big companies as allies offering deals , favours high paying jobs to family members and all the package,they are drunk with power,and they want to keep it!
    GOP is a corrupt body that needs to go!

  33. Lol black lady acts so happy that the country will be majority non white someday but is too stupid to realize black numbers aren’t going up it’s Hispanics

  34. The republicans argument that so called hear say does not hold up to me since I am a christian,like most republicans so i have been told! My argument to the point is i could not be a christian unless i put a great value on hear say due to the fact that i have never seen God yet i beleive in God, i beleive the bible is true and it is based on hear say as to the subject of God which it is written no one has seen God…… so if hear say is worthless then how can i beleive what jesus said?Then Jesus told him, "Because you have seen me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed."

  35. Hillary secretly lobbied to convince the republicans to vote against the Voting Rights Act of 1965. Google it.

  36. The original bill was not a problem for GOP it was the revisions, On Friday, Republicans accused the Voting Rights Advancement Act of doing more than just reinstating the preclearance formula, contending the bill constituted broad federal overreach of states’ rights.

    GOP lawmakers also complained the bill prohibited states from implementing voter ID laws and would require states to get permission before putting in place very specific election procedures that have a history of being used for discriminatory practices — even if the procedures weren’t intended to be discriminatory

  37. Filibustering the system is a form of the typical dna tantrum… Deny everything, Normalise everything or the criminal acts, if all fails ATTACK everyone

  38. But I thought the Russian traitors wanted to add a citizenship question on the 2020 census to improve The Voting Rights Act. ya right a~~holes

  39. Why can't this voting rights act become permanent? Why do we have to keep voting for this? Its too vulnerable an issue, too important. Make it permanent!!

  40. It's the only way Republicans can win Elections, restoring it would shut them down. "National Registered Voter Turnout in Federal Elections" it's a website, 2016 was the LOWEST in 20 years and they lost by just under 3 Million, 2018 set new Mid-term records. The HIGHEST Mid-term turn-out number in history, the highest Mid-term turn-out % in over 100 years, US Census bureau site, 54.3%. 114 Million Citizens of the United States of America voted and Republicans lost the popular vote by OVER 10 Million, they just lost they 2019. TRADITIONALLY, low turn-outs have gone Republican, high turn-outs have gone Democrat, that is obviously NOT what happened, the reason, is Donald Trump.

  41. Voting rights is the only right that has been dealt with 4 TIMES in the Constitution and they are STILL jerking around with it.

  42. The attempt to get rid of the Voting Rights Act is shrouded in us living in a supposed "post racial society" and from the standpoint of mostly white Republicans, we don't need it anymore. On its face, this is truly an attempt at "Making America Great AGAIN" and if it was ever contested that the phrase wasn't harkening back to a time when blacks were in subservient positions with little to no power, I think those who contested should reconsidered. This administration is trying to take us back pre-1965 and even further, perhaps.

  43. This has nothing to do with this bill, it's all political because of the impossibly deep and unimaginably wide rift between the parties. Impeachment of Trump is a given. If Trump is removed from his office, there will be vendetta that will be held by Republicans for decades.

  44. The Yanks are All show , and No One , held accountable for 9/11 . For using unoffical servers, for threats against the President, for Killing a president, for selling Arms to both sides in a conflict… Nearly as bad as Ireland. Thieving Bankers, pervy priests, lousy EPA and corrupt politicans… LoL

  45. Voting rights should be universal and guaranteed to everyone and not determined by politics. If politics can decide who gets to vote then there is a quid pro quo. It's like saying: If you vote for me you can get to vote!

  46. Our electoral system merits a complete overhaul if it follows what our forefathers intended. There is voter suppression, blatant gerrymandering, intimidation and voting inconvenience.

  47. I never imagined that in America the right to vote depended on the direction the political wind is blowing.
    This should not happen in America.
    We're about to see the GOP remove the distinctive nature that makes the U.S. a democratic republic..
    POOF… The GOP . with an insolent smile on it's face and forked tongue flicking in and out through it's lips made America disappear .

  48. This is all about importing voters so the Democrats can resume power regardless of how much damage it will cause the country.

  49. Nothing should surprise. Republicans are fascist criminals who want nothing more than to transform America into another Russian nationalist state.
