The COVID-19 pandemic has closed schools and many businesses across the nation.
Social distancing is a way of life now, while decorative face masks have set new fashion trends. I have mine adorned with The Ohio State Buckeyes.
The mainstream media has treated President Trump with blatant disrespect, and they seem to be cheering for the virus to wreak havoc on the economy during the daily press briefings.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi proudly showed off her stash of ice cream while her district in San Francisco was in chaos.
But one thing is evident.
The party she leads has lost focus and does not appear to have the immediate best interest of people in mind. I believe she wants this virus to keep the nation shut down, and the economy to remain in the tank.
She and her party have held stimulus packages for ransom, and they now believe they can manipulate the outcome of the presidential election in their favor. Instead of helping the nation recover, she wants to help her own liberal agenda.
In their minds, the pandemic’s collateral damage is the last chance to defeat President Trump this November.
All other schemes and tactics failed miserably over the past three years.
The Democrats appear willing to allow the economy to crumble while people suffer massive job losses in hopes of taking over The White House.
If they can manipulate and change the rules, then they can sabotage the outcome of the election in their favor.
Prominent Democrats are all now pushing to change the rules to allow for mail-in voting this year. That’s absurd.
Dr. Anthony Fauci, who said in February that the coronavirus was not a serious health threat, now says he doesn’t foresee a situation where citizens should be allowed to turn out in person to cast a vote.
Although he is touted as the best in health care, he is also considered by many to be a supporter of Hillary Clinton.
The sudden call to switch the rules and open the door to potential cheating is alarming.
Pelosi is proposing legislation in favor of “ballot harvesting.” Those two words are chilling enough.
It will permit any person to collect and turn in someone else’s ballot with little oversight of how many votes one person can gather. A scenario where a person harvests and turns in multiple tainted ballots to be counted is a real threat to democracy. And Democrats have a history of tinkering with ballots that suddenly appear from closets or trunks of cars when they are needed.
If they can hold fake impeachment hearings, fake Russia probes, a fake porn star fiasco and fake investigations into Trump’s life, they can produce a trillion votes for Joe Biden and scoot him into the Oval Office.
If that is not an option, there is talk from the Democrats to push back the election until the pandemic crisis is over. And who knows when that might be because Democrats don’t appear to want to allow people to go back to work.
They might want to delay the elections because Joe Biden, their presumptive nominee, cannot form a coherent sentence when he talks. By delaying the election, they could find a way to push him out of the way for another candidate.
His incoherent jabbering, combined with the sexual misconduct allegations from a former staffer that has come to light, have caused red flashing lights all over. However, the mainstream media have intentionally ignored the signals. Instead, they have opted to play as hypocritical cowards and not cover the scandal because it will only help Trump.
The election is six months away, and no one knows if the virus will be around when voters go to the ballot box.
People are permitted now to go the grocery store. Residents can go to Walmart and shop and are encouraged to adhere to guidelines.
But they can’t go vote? Democrats see this pandemic as an avenue to capture the White House. They are selfish and dangerous.
If some state leaders can allow abortion clinics to remain open, then all Americans should be permitted to vote for president without having their rights and votes harvested.
