What once was a solidly red state, Texas has gradually become competitive over time. Changing demographics have been a contributing factor to Texas’s ever-changing political environment.
However, there’s one insidious factor that very few conservative pundits are talking about that’s making the state more competitive than it should be — voter fraud.
Just look at recent reports from the Blaze, which covered the case of a south Texas justice of the peace being arrested next to three other individuals for 150 charges of voter fraud.
The folks at the Blaze covered this incident earlier this week, which actually took place at the start of February. Not a shock that this story didn’t receive much coverage since the ruling class would have everyone in the country believe that the U.S. has the safest, most secure elections in the world. Well, not so much after we unpack all the shenanigans that took place in the fraud-ridden 2020 elections.
Tomas Ramirez, the Medina County Justice of Peace, was arrested on February 11, “assisting voter voting ballot by mail,” and 17 counts of illegal possession of a ballot or ballot envelope, per a KABB report.
Ramirez was arrested along with Leonor Rivas Garza, Eva Ann Martinez, and Mary Balderrama. The Bandera Grand Jury indicted the four individuals on February 9. According to the Blaze report, the four individuals in question were charged with organized election fraud along with “multiple charges of illegal voting, unlawful possession of a ballot or ballot envelope, election fraud, fraudulent use of an absentee ballot by mail, tampering with a government record, and purportedly acting as an agent.”
The Texas Attorney General’s office indicated that this case goes even deeper. Ramirez and his compatriots in crime were alleged to have engaged in vote harvesting at assisted living centers in Medina County during the 2018 Medina County Primary Election. In 2018, Ramirez was elected as a justice of the peace and was subsequently suspended from his position following his arrest.
Ramirez released a statement declaring that he was “stunned” by the allegations and categorically denied all of charges levied against him:
I was stunned by the allegations because there is absolutely no truth to them. I have spent the last 27 years building my law practice and serving in this community which has created my reputation for fairness, sincerity and integrity. I entered the race for JP because I wanted to serve Medina County and make the office function better for its citizens. I feel I have done exactly that up to this point. For people who know me, these allegations are absurd. To those who don’t, it provides reason to sneer and hate.
I will vigorously defend myself to the fullest extent and I fully expect to be vindicated.
Such arrests come at a time when election integrity has become a major issue in America. The fact is that the 2020 election was rife with irregularities and outright voter fraud. Election integrity is no joke. If Republicans don’t wake up, they will put America’s uniquely stable system of government in danger by letting the Left rig and steal elections in complete defiance of the will of American voters.
The Ramirez arrest just shows how deep electoral fraud goes across many parts of America. Nationalists should be at the forefront of leading the charge against these foul practices and work tirelessly to clean up our elections.
