Last week the State of Oklahoma passed legislation that gave direction to review all federal executive orders and determine if they were constitutional.
“The Bill would allow the Oklahoma state legislature to review each executive order and determine if the order should be given to the Oklahoma attorney general, who would determine if it is allowed under the U.S. Constitution. If the attorney general deemed an executive order unconstitutional, the bill seems to indicate the attorney general could sue for a court order invalidating the executive order.
If the attorney general decides not to take action on an order, the legislature could conduct a majority vote declaring it unconstitutional.
If the legislature invokes its option to declare an executive order unconstitutional, the statute is unclear whether the Oklahoma government would file suit or the state would ignore the order inside the state, leaving it to the federal government to enforce or try to take it to court.
Apparently, the State of Oklahoma had advance notice that President Biden is about to sign an Executive Order that would allow federal agencies to work with any state’s election board to serve as a voter registration center.
The administration describes the executive order as an “initial step” to protect voting rights — one that uses “the authority the president has to leverage federal resources to help people register to vote and provide information,” according to an administration official.
As reported by others, Republican Party members in multiple states are seeking 250 laws across the nation to suppress the vote at some level. Taking cues from the Bible, it shall be easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a poor person, a person who uses a PO box, a person without a driver license, or a predominantly black community or Indian nation to register to vote or to actually vote.
So now we know why the State of Oklahoma passed such an incredibly unique law. It one fell swoop the Attormey General could declare that this Executive Order to work with states on elections is unconsitutional… and then begin to ignore the federal government.
As we have seen in this recent election, the Republican Party wishes to have sole control over who is allowed to register and, utlimately, who can actually vote in all elections.
And the Democrat Party wants to allow everyone to vote, whether or not they are citizens.
May God save us from both!
