With the most recent CDC estimates pointing to a 0.26% fatality rate among Covid-19 patients, many people around the country are ready to get back to work and end the shutdown.
Yet, some Governors, such as Gavin Newsom (D-CA), seem to be doubling down on the strategies they implemented when the initial models projected doom and gloom (Fauci said over 1.5 million could die), leading to an unprecedented shutdown of businesses, schools, churches, sporting events and anything else deemed non-essential by that state’s governor.
Apparently Gavin Newsom still expects California to be shut down all the way throughout November. He has declared via executive order that every registered voter in California will receive a mail-in ballot. He claims this is for the health and safety of his citizens, but many people question his true intent.
This doesnt sit well with many Americans who are already skeptical about the legitimacy of the voting process. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know that votes would be much easier to manipulate through mail-in ballots. The RNC, and other GOP groups, have filed lawsuits against Newsom in an attempt to block his executive order, calling it a “recipe for disaster”.
In a tweet this morning President Trump declared “There is NO WAY (ZERO!) that Mail-In Ballots will be anything less than substantially fraudulent. Mail boxes will be robbed, ballots will be forged & even illegally printed out & fraudulently signed.”
There is NO WAY (ZERO!) that Mail-In Ballots will be anything less than substantially fraudulent. Mail boxes will be robbed, ballots will be forged & even illegally printed out & fraudulently signed. The Governor of California is sending Ballots to millions of people, anyone…..

In 2016 when Donald Trump warned that the presidential election could be rigged he was ridiculed by the mainstream media, Democrats, and the president. Before the election, Barack Obama mocked Trump saying “there is no serious person out there who would suggest somehow that you could even rig America’s elections.”
Yet, after Trump won the presidency, he did a complete 180 and claimed Russia rigged the election for Trump. For years, we heard nonstop coverage about “Russian Collusion” from the very same people and outlets who said it was impossible to rig an election before their preferred candidate lost.
Now, those same outlets are releasing a blitzkrieg of stories proppipng up mail in voting as “a safe way to vote”. They’re painting those who are concerned about making sure each voted is counted fairly and accurately as “conspiracy theorists”. They’re painting them as selfish people who want to risk public health to prove a political point. This is propaganda at it’s finest.
A large portion of Americans already feel like their vote doesn’t matter, or is not truly counted. If we add to that uncertainty with millions of mail in ballots, their lack of trust in the voting process will only continue to grow.
