FEC to Allow Foreigners to Fund U.S. Ballot Initiatives

Election integrity has been a major issue for many years, but concern for the security and fairness of our electoral process has never been more under threat than it is now. Following the presidential election of 2020, nearly half of Americans have lost all faith in the election system after the massive and blatant misconduct and irregularities surrounding Biden’s supposed win.

Unfortunately, Americans who are concerned about election integrity have more to worry about, not less. Now, the Federal Election Commission (FEC) has decided that foreign donors will be allowed to make financial contributions to American ballot initiatives.

This is in direct violation of the Federal Election Campaign Act of 1971, which prohibits foreign nationals from donating to American electoral campaigns. But that clear legal restriction didn’t even enter the conversation on Monday when the FEC made its ruling. Nevertheless, the FEC declared that foreigners may make direct donations to ballot initiatives that will affect the way in which elections are run and how they function.

The ruling states, “The United States Supreme Court has long recognized that the Act ‘regulates only candidate elections, not referenda or other issue-based ballot measures. Consistent with the Act and court precedents, the Commission has observed that spending relating only to ballot initiatives is generally outside the purview of the Act because such spending is not ‘in connection with’ elections.

This story was broken by Axios.com. According to the news site, 61 referenda are already on state ballots this year. This decision by the FEC has the potential to drastically alter the mechanics of American democracy.

Issues like congressional redistricting are commonly debated and changed, and with this new ruling, foreign powers can have a direct hand in how redistricting can be carried out and finalized. What that means is foreigners can now have a direct say in whether you can vote on issues that matter to you, or if someone else’s vote outside of your community will affect you or not. Voters may lose the ability to vote on issues that affect the areas where they live.

With the motivation to vote based on the needs of one’s own community eliminated, people will vote on laws and regulations that affect people who don’t even live in their area. For example, someone living in New Jersey might vote on an issue affecting the cost of oil and electricity in Northern Delaware. Someone who lives 50 miles from a lake may decide what people who live right on its shore can do in their own backyards.

With the motivation to vote on one’s own immediate interests eliminated, the only motivation to vote in state level elections will be to virtue signal or to vote someone else’s tax dollars into one’s own pocket.

But, of course, this goes far beyond the problem of artificial gerrymandering. This is about a kind of international “redistricting” in which foreign corporations will have the ability to bear weight in state-level elections.

The ruling developed from the response to a complaint from the Montana Mining Association about a 2018 measure which they say was illegally funded by a Canadian ancillary of an Australian company.

The director of the FEC, Brendan Fischer, said the ruling “[…] reflects a big loophole in the federal ban on foreign money in U.S. elections.

The consequences of this ruling will inevitably be that foreign non-governmental organizations will have the ability to influence American laws and regulations to give them the advantage in negotiations with American companies and customers.

This will weaken the buying power of the American consumer, it will hurt the profits and the productivity of American based companies, and it will allow foreigners to buy up American land at prices which they will determine.

The primary argument against this decision is the fact that foreign donations connected to elections are banned. It is also strongly connected to the ongoing issue of redistricting, which is always on the ballot and is always changing. Because these two issues were not addressed in the decision making process behind the ruling, it will likely be contested in upcoming debates at the FEC.

Clearly, these two primary arguments against the ruling are central to the issue, and should be obvious to anyone involved in this kind of decision making. It would be hard to argue that it isn’t obvious, which would mean that this is yet another direct attack on American sovereignty from within our own borders.

This can and should be considered to be the latest effort by the Biden administration to literally sell the freedoms of Americans to the highest bidding foreign interests.

Or just outright to the Globalists.

  1. Foreigners should not have any dealings with America`s voting. That is not and should not be LEGAL! Wealthy people should not be allowed to control the outcome of an ELECTION! THIS IS ALL WRONG! GOD BLESS THE USA!

    1. Absolutely correct. Just another way for the democrats to Control the voting process. Socialism socialism communism here we go in the United States of America. Why would America allow foreigners To vote in American elections. With these countries allow you to vote in their elections? These democrats are nothing but corrupt criminals who want to destroy this country. The American people should not allow this to happen.

      1. THE DEMOCRAP SHITBAG TRAITORS ARE GETTING AWAY WITH FRAUD. THEY ALL SHOULD BE CHARGED WITH TREASON. LOCK THEM UP LIKE THEY ARE DOING THE JAN 6 PROTESTERS

    2. in effect, 6 multinational corporations control the entire mainstream media, including “the net”, television, newspapers and magazines. a hungarian nazi can sweep into the united states and pick your local district attorney. foreign miscreants can hack into you local voting machine and pick your next mayor. schools and universities have become indoctrination centers. have you spoken with a typical college student lately? we are quickly becoming the people’s republic of amerika while most people are sleeping. time to wake up.

      1. Sounds like the only answer we have is to DECLARE THE democratic party a terrorist organization. Put an end to this criminal enterprise once and for all.

        1. I up for that! The democrat party apparently feels that since they are allowing illegal aliens to vote, they might as well allow foreign governments to vote, also! If that is not the action of a terrorist organization, what is?

      2. The FEC has committed a flagrant act against the laws of out country and those there that voted for this abominable act need to be held accountable. There are legal remedies to this act afforded to the Legislature to countermand such overreaching acts of any federal agency and they must be taken today. Not tomorrow or next week, but TODAY! FEDERAL AGENCIES MUST BE HELD ACCOUNTABKE TO THE LAW!

  2. Unfuc.ing real! When will the luancy stop and common sense prevail? Big brother once again proves they can’t be trusted!!

    1. When will Soros be deported to Hungry or Russia? When will all of his organizations lose their tax exempt status?
      Take all of his assets and put them into our treasury for all the harm he has caused the USA. Then start on the foreign governments who are interfering in our government. Start bringing treason charges against the socialist and communist leaders on Capitol Hill as well as this incompetent president and all of his cabinet.

  3. Among other things, what right does the FEC have to decide that foreign donors will be allowed to make financial contributions! It’s all very well to think that it’s alright to do such a thing but it isn’t! Foreign donors will want something in return for their contributions and that something might well not be suitable to Americans! I wuld suggest that this be reconsidered before it’s too late!

  4. I admonish the SC for its role in losing control ( or possibly just looking the other way) on many of our Constitutionally backed rights and powers of the States to control issues on their own terms…IE, Biden’s luring new voters to democrat party by not maintaining legal border controls and flooding America with illegals who eventually will be given citizenship and funds from taxpayers). This is literally a “paid invasion”! States Rights are going to be retested as they are now being done in TX with pushback on allowing their borders to be OPEN. i believe, Geo Soros, that sad ass communist Nazi is behind the legal system failures and the rampant criminality that is pervading the Nation…he is single handledly subverting the prosecutorial system which is letting criminals to run freely all over law enforcement….only at your front door with the “castle doctrine” may citizens react within their rights of self defense if someone breaks into your domicile and threatens you or your family….Rules of Law are being broken apart by Communist elements to have our country take itself from within…make the leftists fight us for supremacy by any means possible…this weakens us and makes us vulnerable to outside attack….could it get any worse…Biden is a Criminal as was Obama…sold our country to the dogs while they enrich themselves by selling their power……bob

    C

  5. This is treasonous! Foreigners, Foreign Governments, and billionaires like Soros, Dorset, Zuckerberg, and the lot should not be permitted interfere with elections! They should be tried for treason and if found guilty, hung immediately!!

  6. This is clearly foreign interference which is ILLEGAL!!! The FEC needs to be held accountable and everyone that voted for this need to be arrested and charged accordingly!

  7. who initiated this change? the FEC didn’t propose this on their own,,,,,why and how isn’t mentioned, it wasn’t on any ballot initiative that i was privy to….it is certainly disingenous and disgusting, i believe that the small faction of Americans who are with soros/obummer/sanders need their proverbial heads handed to them on a silver platter…we need to take this country back, not let it slip into the great abyss!

  8. TERRIBLE. This has to be stopped and never allowed. Want voting from China, Russia, NKorea, Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan and all Middle East, Cuba, Venezuela and all Socialist/Communist countries, terrorist supporting countries? Absolutely not. What the HEJJ are they thinking to allow all these anti-American actions? Does this Admin want to destroy America in record time? SICK.

  9. What is wrong with these people. They are trying to kill our democracy. stop it and never let it happen. The people that voted for this needs to be arrested. It’s ILLEGAL.

  10. WE NEED TO MAKE ANY OUTSIDE INTERFERANCE IN ANY AND ALL OF OUR ELECTIONS HERE IN THE UNITED STATES “ILLEGAL” AND TOTALLY BAN ANY FOREIGN MONEY FROM ANY ORIGANIZATION TO BE FILTERED INTO OUR ELECTIONS. BAN ALL FOREIGN CONTRIBUTIONS TO LOCAL “LEGAL” organizations WHO WILL THEN USE THE MONEY TO SUPPORT CANDIDATES WHO RUN FOR any GOVERNMENT OFFICE.

  11. Sounds like the only answer we have is to DECLARE THE democratic party a terrorist organization. Put an end to this criminal enterprise once and for all.

    I WHOLLY AGREE 1000%!! TIME TO GO TO WAR ON THOSE COMMIE BEASTS!!!!

  12. No foreign country or foreign company should have any say in our elections period! It appears to be a major step in the direction of One World Order. This allows socialistic/communists countries to control what happens even in our back yards literally destroying our democracy and our freedom! This is unconstitutional and should be treated as such!

  13. Oh my, I have been praying so hard that they would let rich men from other countries control who is elected in our country. Obviously they are more likely to have our best interests in mind and surely they know what is best for us. Putin and that Chinese guy surely will be a true asset in our elections. They are so smart! You believe that don’t you? Yeah, like I have lost my mind? I can’t imagine what is the matter with the idiots that dreamed this up. Any one caught getting money from ANYONE who is not a citizen of The United States of America should be imprisoned and the donor banned from the country for life.
