Texas Attorney General Warns UN Observers of Criminal Prosecutions in Election

Not only is this encouraging on its own, but the howling from the Left is even better.
If you cut and paste the title and name below in Google search, your results will be the Huffington Post, Think Progress, and NPR, just to name three:

Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott

"Don’t mess with Texas elections.

That’s the double-down message Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott delivered Thursday to poll watchers affiliated with United Nations who want to come and observe voting on Election Day.

The squabble started after Abbott wrote to the Organization for Security and Co-Operation in Europe, threatening to prosecute any of its members who come near a polling location.

“The OSCE may be entitled to its opinions about Voter ID laws, but your opinion is legally irrelevant in the United States, where the Supreme Court has already determined that Voter ID laws are constitutional,” Abbott wrote.

Abbott concluded his letter by adding that the Texas Election Code governs all election participants and that OSCE officials are not authorized to enter a polling place. He said it “may be a criminal offense for OSCE’s representatives to maintain a presence within 100 feet of a polling place’s entrance.”

“Failure to comply with these requirements could subject the OSCE’s representatives to criminal prosecution for violating state law,” Abbott wrote.
The OSCE wants to go to Texas this year, like it has to poll locations across the U.S. since 2002.

The group calls Abbott’s threat “unacceptable” in a letter to the State Department. Abbott on Thursday tweeted his response: “BRING IT"

These people are the trash of Europe. It is they who are running Western Europe into the ground and chafe at the thought of any nation going in a political direction contrary to what they desire for us.

While they target their own people for demographic and political impotence, they pretend to be under the impression that the US needs supervision in our voting processes. Voter ID laws, which threaten voter fraud  are being presented as tools of oppression.

This is what we need from free and sovereign US states - make it painfully clear that they will not be subject to UN oversight.
