The Obama Foundation’s Democracy Forum Is Raising Serious Concerns

On countless occasions, Democrats have spoken about the important roles elections play in American democracy. At the same time, Democrats continue pulling out all the stops to swing elections in their favor.

Look no further than Joe Biden ordering various federal agencies to involve themselves in election-related endeavors. Some critics of the president warn this is likely illegal, due to the Constitution giving Congress and states, not the executive branch, authority over elections.

On top of that, Democrats have tried to pass election overhaul bills, such as the For the People Act, that would gut states’ rights to run their own elections.

Now, the Obama Foundation is joining in on the action. Next month, this group will host a democracy forum that boosts a non-profit with significant involvement in the 2020 presidential election.

A Closer Look at the Upcoming Democracy Forum
The democracy forum of the Obama administration is going to be led by the Center For Technology and Civic Life (CTCL).

Coincidentally, CTCL founder Tiana Epps-Johnson donated roughly $350 million via grants to elections offices during the last presidential race. CTCL was able to come into these funds, thanks to fundraising from Mark Zuckerberg, the CEO of Meta.

Issues with this exist because of the inherent bias associated with CTCL. The organization’s funds somehow end up boosting left-wing voter turnout, rather than voter turnout across the board.

Though this makes sense, considering that Epps-Johnson herself previously worked with pro-left-wing organizations.

Nevertheless, the Obama Foundation is praising the CTCL founder as a herald of democracy who makes elections safer and more “inclusive.”

Seeking Any Advantage Possible in Elections
Between Biden’s unpopularity, polls showing Democrats losing leads, and the massive issues facing America, it’s very clear the midterms could end up favoring Republicans.

Americans can see the writing on the wall with CTCL and the Obama Foundation. Democrats aren’t truly trying to make elections more secure for legal voters. On the contrary, they want to make elections more titled in their favor.

This is why certain communities like Washington, D.C., and New York City have tried to give voting rights to noncitizens. It’s why grants from CTCL during the 2020 presidential election overwhelmingly helped Democratic voter turnout, not voter turnout across the board.

At this rate, it’s only a matter of time before Democrats find new ways to get around their growing loss of support.
