Cornonavirus Is No Reason for the Feds to
Take Over the Election Process

Original Article

COVID-19—is there anything the coronavirus can’t do? Sens. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) and Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) seem to think it should make the feds tell the states how to run their elections. They’ve introduced a bill that would do just that. S. 3529, the “Natural Disaster and Emergency Ballot Act of 2020” is aptly named because it could bring an electoral disaster in November. Not only is it unnecessary, but it would also make it easier to fiddle with election results. Under our Constitution, Congress sets the time, place, and manner of federal elections, but it is the states and particularly county governments that actually administer the elections. Our Founders designed this structure

Part of the end game my friends. This is about trying to make sure that Trump doesn't get re-elected.

Bottom line, democrats will suffer an embarrassing defeat in November unless extreme measures are taken to allow cheating, fraudulent voting and intimidation of Republican voters. They will try everything and this is one of those attempts.

It has been a very long time since Americans last saw such a clear distinction between the considerable leadership qualities of their president, and the shameless political maneuverings of an opposition party constantly lusting for power. Let us review exactly what has happened in this country over the past two months, vis-a-vis the coronavirus pandemic. On January 29, President Donald Trump created a White House Coronavirus Task Force to coordinate the federal government's response to the virus outbreak and to keep the American people as informed about it as possible. At that time, you might recall, congressional Democrats were giving precisely ZERO attention to the coronavirus threat.

For a host of reasons, not the least of which being newly reported details of an alleged sexual assault, a social media campaign has emerged to remind Joe Biden that his time is up. The hashtag #TimesUpBiden began trending online after a former staffer accused then-Sen. Biden of forcibly penetrating her against her will with his fingers in 1993. As BizPac Review reported, Tara Reade accused Biden of inappropriate touching last spring, and she just admitted to Rolling Stone magazine that the 2020 Democratic front-runner’s behavior extended way beyond just mere touching. “I was wearing a blouse, and he just had me up against the wall, and the wall was cold,” Reade said.

Comedian Kathy Griffin continued to dramatize her stint at a hospital coronavirus isolation ward despite being sent home with an abdominal infection. Griffin bashed the Trump administration when she revealed she was in a hospital Wednesday but could not get tested for COVID-19 “because of CDC (Pence task force) restrictions.” Though the 59-year-old entertainer showed none of the coronavirus symptoms and was sent home with a different diagnosis, she took to Twitter to claim she “still has no idea” whether she tested positive or negative for the virus. In a series of tweets Thursday, Griffin quoted from a Los Angeles Times article on her experience,

After a shocking turnaround in his campaign — he was nearly left for dead after his crushing defeat in New Hampshire, only to become the presumptive nominee after Super Tuesday — Joe Biden was ready to pivot to a general election campaign against President Trump. But then the coronavirus hit the United States, and the ex-veep’s campaign has struggled mightily to deal with the political fallout. Trump has dominated the news cycles over the last three weeks, and his administration has been a whirling dervish of activity. He and his team offer daily reports about N95 masks secured, ventilators procured, production capacities increased,

A stockpile of 1.5 million expired N95 respirator masks belonging to the US Customs and Border Protection agency is expected to be deployed to the Transportation Security Administration to aid its underequipped workforce, a report said. Officials with the Department of Homeland Security decided to deliver the supply of protective masks to the TSA on a Wednesday conference call, sources told The Washington Post. The masks have been sitting inside an Indiana warehouse, the report said. While they are past their expiration date, a White House official told the paper that they still function properly. “The masks are fully capable,” the official said.

A German cathedral has dug out from a treasure chamber its collection of remains of St. Corona, the little-known Christian martyr who has been purported to be the patron saint of resisting epidemics. The Aachen Cathedral had already been planning before the coronavirus outbreak to showcase the remains and an elaborate shrine to the saint as part of an exhibit of gold craftsmanship, according to Reuters. But it has now accelerated its plans after the pandemic began sweeping across the globe — though it remains unclear when people will be able to visit the display amid strict restrictions on public gatherings. “We have brought the shrine out a bit earlier than planned

MLB team jerseys are being made into a million protective masks to support medical workers on the frontlines of the coronavirus pandemic in Pennsylvania, New York and New Jersey. The announcement was made on Thursday by MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred and Fanatics mogul Michael Rubin, whose apparel company makes jerseys for the league. Rubin’s Fanatics brand is the licensed apparel partner of all major sports leagues. It makes the MLB jerseys in a 360,000-square-foot plant in Easton, Pennsylvania. He posted on Instagram of the idea to create the masks from the same material as the authentic baseball gear:

On Tuesday, President Trump, Vice President Pence, Deborah Birx, and Surgeon General Vice Admiral Jerome Adams sat down for a Fox News virtual town hall. It was the most-watched town hall in cable news history, with around 4.4 million viewers. Americans are obviously hungry to hear information directly from those people who will make decisions about how our country approaches the coronavirus situation. In addition to the town hall, President Trump has been making himself and his team available every day for press conferences. While the President is always going to be Trump-esque, he’s learned the virtue of gracefully stepping aside so that the experts can speak directly to the public.

Donald Trump plays a different game of chess. He thinks several moves ahead, as any chess master would, but he also plays multiple games simultaneously. He contends with a confrontational media, an insatiable Democratic House leadership, and ill prepared state government–managed health care facilities. Trump would be amazed should he get true bipartisan support in his effort to stem the coronavirus crisis. Trump chose to express his desire for a return to normal. He hoped America could reopen by Easter. The media immediately rushed to condemn him. But when his tweet Sunday evening was sent out,

Coronavirus is frightening. I'm working from home, practicing "social distancing." Experts say it'll help "flatten the curve" so fewer people will be infected simultaneously. Then hospitals won't be overwhelmed. But the infection rate grows. Doctors and hospitals may yet be overwhelmed. It didn't have to get to this point. Coronavirus deaths leveled off in South Korea. That's because people in Korea could easily find out if they had the disease. There are hundreds of testing locations -- even pop-up drive-thru testing centers. Because Koreans got tested, Korean doctors knew who needed to be isolated and who didn't. As a result, Korea limited the disease without mass quarantines and shortages.

The reeling US newspaper industry will be eligible to tap a portion of the $2 trillion stimulus package that contains $349 billion earmarked for small businesses. But the potential rescue package comes too late to help dozens of newsrooms that have been slashing jobs as shuttered local businesses stop advertising. News advertising has plummeted between 20 and 30 percent in the past two weeks compared to a year ago, according to the International News Media Association. The Washingtonian stopped using freelancers, laid off all its fellows and instituted a 10 percent pay cut for surviving staffers. The Austin Chronicle is moving from a weekly

Governor Gretchen Whitmer from the Michigan Directorate has threatened to turn the eye of the state upon any doctor or pharmacist who would attempt to prescribe chloroquine to treat their patients suffering from coronavirus. Medical licenses may need to be revoked. The agency’s March 24 letter warns physicians and pharmacists of professional consequences for the prescribing of hydroxychloroquine (and chloroquine). Beyond the rational recommendation against hoarding, the letter includes threats of “administrative action” against the licenses of doctors that prescribe hydroxychloroquine.

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was blasted on social media Friday for her swipe against President Trump amid the growing coronavirus outbreak within the U.S. Since the availability of testing kits has broadened in recent days, the number of confirmed cases in the U.S. has skyrocketed. On Thursday, the U.S. has reportedly outpaced both China and Italy with more than 97,000 reported cases. Clinton took the latest developments as an opportunity to knock her former 2016 rival on Twitter. "He did promise 'America First,'" Clinton wrote, referring to one of the president's oft-repeated campaign slogans.

Earlier this week, Texas issued a directive banning all non-emergency surgeries and procedures, including abortions, to free up resources. “Texas and other states are using the coronavirus as an excuse to deny women their constitutional right to an abortion,” James said in a statement. “This is a full-on assault on women’s reproductive rights not only in Texas, but across the country, and I will not allow any state to usurp the rights of women enshrined in the Constitution.”

It shows, for one thing, how far COVID-19 has to go before it equals the average seasonal flu mortality, worldwide. If I had to predict, I would guess that it will eventually reach the average level.

Thomas Massie may have just delayed that relief from reaching businesses and families. Massie announced Friday morning that he would defy GOP leadership and request a roll call vote on the relief package, which means that if 216 lawmakers are not physically present in the House to vote on the measure, the relief package will remain at a standstill until quorum is reached. While Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez also considered blocking the bill, it seemed set to pass quickly on Friday, until Massie
