Are Recent Reports of COVID
Surges an Attempt to Suppress
In-Person Voting?

Original Article

Posted By: Magnante, 10/26/2020 4:38:08 AM

Back in March, the COVID mantra was, “15 days to slow the spread”, meaning flattening the curve. (snip) What if the latest surge is just another political move, an attempt to influence election, now a week away? What exactly is this current surge? Is it a surge in positive tests, cases, hospitalizations, or deaths? A positive test alone is not a case, according to the CDC. The “case definition” of COVID is a positive test and symptoms. People who might have had a mild case a month ago may still have dead viral particles in their noses, triggering positive tests.

Without a doubt. Read also about plans to prevent GOP poll watchers from doing their jobs by keeping them "socially distanced". I believe the report was out of Detroit Michigan.

Yep, I think so. Who cares about the surge.....it's flu season. It's to scare everyone to vote mail in ballots. Well, it's not going to work. We are saturated with this crap and want to get on with our lives WITHOUT a mask and the stupid distancing.

Definitely. We got a corporate email a week or so ago encouraging us to vote. The first 1/3 of it was a veiled attempt to create FUD, and discourage in person voting.

Of course, I believe it because this surge is just too convenient for the democrats. What I want to know is the number of survivors and actual deaths by COVID-19. They word parse so much you can’t pin them down. Dying of COVID-19 is very different than dying with Covid-19. They are lumping all the COVID-19 deaths into one group whether they actually die of it or with it at the time of their death. Our goofy governor is a mess. He is democrat lite and is destroying our state with his mandates. It is shocking what these governors are getting away with. They are despots,

If so, it will hurt the democrats more. Stats show that liberal viewers of leftist news are terrified! Worried about getting coronavirus: democrat men 77%, democrat women 80%, republican men 20%, republican women 29%

The answer is in the question. Of course it is. The reality that the President has gotten COVID and recovered is yuge in changing people's view of the danger of the disease, whether the individual is aware of the fact or not. The opposition knows this, and are trying to reinflate the fear factor to suppress the vote. I also won't be surprised to see more coverage of violence at polling stations either. They are pulling out whatever stops they have at this point.

The sad willingness of people to embrace the fear and wear useless masks in order to act in unison with some quasi government safety movement is scary. We now know how uncritical in thought and easily gullible portions of our population are and how helpless we are to get the truth out in the face of manipulations by global telecom antiAmerican monopolies and social media.

But instead, Iowa, MICHIGAN, MINNESOTA, PENNSYLVANIA, Ohio, and WISCONSIN, all necessary for Trump to win on his way to reelection. GOOD NEWS: In Connecticut, MICHIGAN, MINNESOTA, Mississippi, New York, PENNSYLVANIA and WISCONSIN you can have a VOTE do-over. Early voters are busy searching the Internet to discover how to change their vote for Biden.

Would the Marxists plant the Chicom virus in polling places to make sure people get infected? That way if the massive election fraud and cheating work for Biden and he is elected, the Marxists will convict anyone connected with Trump and of course DJT will be tried and convicted and imprisoned for their "crimes." Don't ever forget these Marxists ONLY double and triple down on their evil and they stop at nothing.

I received 3 unsolicited calls on my cell phone last week. Robo caller, female voice, tells me "This is the time to be safe. Be safe and stay home." Very short message. I saved the numbers, all from a number in my area code - at least that is what the screen said. I suspect it was Dem dirty tricks, calls to numbers in overwhelmingly "red" areas.

Well, the media's objectives are many: Make Mr Trump look bad in corona world, right before November 3, scare people to vote early before the information on the baby Biden laptop becomes widely known, commit to mail in ballot, that could get lost, be disqualified, thrown away, delayed The way media has been.pushing early voting, it's obvious they are up to something and they should be answered with a big fat NO, we will wait for ELECTION DAY to vote!

The flu surge is expected and predictable as more people are beating their fear and coming out, but the deaths are down. That is the important thing. In my county we have 4 super tents set up at the hospital with beds for the alleged spill over from huge numbers of expected Covid patients and not one bed or tent has ever been used there.

Don't believe anything that's reported. False positives are rampant and are being used to discourage voting in person. Just use common sense and go about your daily life. I voted last week. The whole process took 45 minutes from the time I parked my car to the time started it up to go home. The line moves fast.

The surge is in the number of tests that are being given - increases since March match more available testing facilities. Adding to that is seasonal traveling. Out-of-state vehicles everywhere with bicycles and kayaks attached, not that there's anything wrong with that.

The CBS 60 Minutes fiasco was all of Lesley Stahl’s doing; she embarrassed herself. She thought that she had the President in her sights and she intended to belittle him. Why not? She and her network have a long history of deceitful editing with the goal of destroying people they loathe. Remember Dan Rather’s “fake but accurate” defense of his phony documents meant to derail George Bush’s re-election. Stahl’s interview was not an interview, it was an ambush. She did not count on him pushing back; that is how dense she is.

Joe Biden has a well-deserved reputation as a gaffe machine, but an offhand comment yesterday in Pennsylvania while addressing a parking lot with a few cars in it, tells us exactly what we need to know about him at this precise moment.

GTV, a Chinese dissident billionaire’s Taiwan-based media outlet, is releasing sordid, depressing videos and photographs of a person purported to be Hunter Biden engaging in sex and seemingly smoking crack. That’s not the big news. The big news is that the same outlet claims that (a) Communist China owns Joe Biden; (b) Joe Biden sold out CIA assets in China who were then executed or imprisoned; and (c) GTV has millions of images showing other presumably influential people in comprising positions. If all this is true, we may see a complete realignment in Western politics. The Hunter Biden videos and images are at GTV’s video site.

The moment Donald Trump and Joe Biden appeared on the stage, Trump was in control. He looked robust, while Biden appeared frail and slow. Trump’s dominance extended beyond looks. He ably defended his record against attacks from both Biden and the moderator, Kristen Welker. He also politely, but insistently, pressed Biden on his decades of failure, the damage he caused to the black community, and his corrupt dealings with his son, Hunter. It was a rout. Those expecting Trump to be a bit of a madman, as he was during the first debate, were disappointed

Joe Biden’s tendency to now go into seclusion before presidential debates has raised many an eyebrow.

But there’s another possible explanation. (snip) Alter the candidate’s sleep schedule so that he retires and wakes up late, really late, so he can peak for an 8 p.m. event.
