Arizona Lawmakers Unveil A Bill Banning Foreign Components In Voting Machines

OPINION:  This article contains commentary which may reflect the author’s opinion

A blockbuster election development out of Arizona over the use of voting machines with parts manufactured in foreign countries is making some ‘America First’ people very happy with what would seem to be just a common sense bill.

Republicans in AZ are making the phrase ‘Made in America’ a popular saying again, especially with people concerned with election integrity.

Of course, Democrats don’t support the idea, even while they are trying to convince Americans that they care about American jobs and recapturing our manufacturing.

Nonetheless, the bill is getting some steam.

On Monday, the Arizona state Senate Committee on Elections passed a proposed amendment to Arizona’s election laws that would require that voting machines be made entirely of components sourced in the United States.

This idea seems so common sense, so of course, radical Marxists are not happy with the idea because it would curtail their usurpations against the American Republic. But Republicans in AZ, like firebrand state Senator Wendy Rodgers, are ready for a battle to push this bill forward and make it a reality.

The proposed change in election law backed by Arizona Senate Majority Leader Sonny Borrelli and sponsored by Sen. Anthony Kern — both Republicans — relies on the constitutional legislature’s authority to oversee elections. Therefore, the lawmakers argue, it does not need Democratic Gov. Katie Hobbs’ signature to become Arizona’s voting policy,” the Western Journal reported on the details of the bill, adding:

“The resolution states right up front that the U.S. Department of Homeland Security in 2017 designated election infrastructure as critical infrastructure. In light of this, Republican senators said that Arizona should follow the Department of Defense policy of requiring the supply chain for the machines to be sourced in the U.S.”

What was supposed to be a non-partisan elections committee has gotten very partisan, KOLD reported about the hearing, highlighting:

“The committee meeting will be conducted as a model of decorum, this is your warning,” said Rogers, a Republican from District. “If you misbehave in any way either at the microphone or from the audience you will be ejected.”

The committee was scheduled to vote on 10 election bills, including one which would do away with vote centers and another which will require people who have an early ballot to show identification if they decide to drop it off on election day.

But before they voted on the bills, they heard a second day of testimony for We the People AZ Alliance, which are challenging the veracity of the 2022 election.

.“The PAC status of your organization indicates the partisan nature of your organization, Sundareshan said.

“A PAC isn’t necessarily partisan just so you’re clear on that,’ Rogers said. “Please don’t infer that.”

“Okay, Shandareshan said. “Having taken a look at your website, the highly partisan nature of your website.”

“I would take exception to your characterization of that,” Rogers said.

“Can I ask that your website includes videos of the Kari Lake campaign that includes a lot of the election denial claims,” Shandareshan asked?

“I do not want the phrase election denial used in this room please,” Rogers said. “It’s a partisan term in and of itself.”

Rogers posted about the update, confirming the details about American manufacturing:

“Yup. SB 1074: “Prohibits use of electronic voting equipment as primary method for tabulating votes in any city, town, county, state or federal election unless outlined requirements are met & prescribes requirement relating to the source codes for electronic voting equipment.”

Martin Walsh reported for Conservative Brief with more details and how the bill effects Kari Lake:

This comes as Arizona Republican Kari Lake said she’s “entertaining” a possible U.S. Senate run.

During an interview with Charlie Kirk on his Real America’s Voice show, Lake hinted that she could run for the Senate in the 2024 election if she doesn’t get a “decent ruling” in her lawsuit for the Arizona gubernatorial election.

When Kirk asked if she was “entertaining” a Senate run, Lake replied: “Yes I am entertaining it. I mean my number one priority is our court case, and I have full confidence in our court case and I hope we will get a judge to do the right thing. But I’m also looking at what happens if we don’t get a decent ruling in that, and they want me to go away, they want our movement to go away. I represent we the people, and if they want us gone so badly that they’re willing to steal an election then I’m not going to let them have that, I won’t go away.”

“I’ve seen some internal polling that shows I’m the only Republican who can beat these other two. I find both of them incredibly dangerous to the people of Arizona, Kyrsten Sinema’s voting record being 93 percent of the time voting for Joe Biden’s agenda, I find Ruben Gallego being a self-admitted socialist really frightening for Arizona and if I’m the only Republican who can beat them, I would be willing to jump in,” Lake added.

A state appeals court in Arizona has agreed to expedite a hearing into Lake’s lawsuit. The decision by the Arizona Court of Appeals comes after the state Supreme Court rejected her case earlier this month and remanded it to be heard first in lower courts. In a brief order, the court agreed with Lake’s arguments that her challenge should be handled as a “special action petition.” The court date is reportedly scheduled for March.
