This seems like something he should have known a month ago

Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden declared on Aug. 13 that he would call for a nationwide face mask mandate. “Every single American should be wearing a mask when they’re outside for the next three months, at a minimum,” Biden said in August. “Let’s institute a mask mandate nationwide starting immediately, and we will save lives.”

Biden’s running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), eagerly approved of Biden’s mask mandate. “That’s what real leadership looks like,” Harris said on the same day. “We just witnessed real leadership. Which is Joe Biden said that as a nation, we should all be wearing a mask for the next three months, because it will save lives.”

During Biden’s acceptance speech on the final night of the 2020 Democratic National Convention, he firmly declared that he would implement a national mask mandate if elected president.

“We’ll have a national mandate to wear a mask — not as a burden, but to protect each other,” Biden said on Aug. 20 at the 2020 DNC. “It’s a patriotic duty.”

However, Biden walked back his national mask mandate on Sunday, admitting that it would probably be unconstitutional.

Dennis Welch, political editor of the Arizona’s Family publication and host of “Politics Unplugged,” asked Biden about instituting a stronger federal response to the coronavirus pandemic, such as a national mask mandate.

“Here’s the deal, the federal government…there’s a constitutional issue whether the federal government could issue such a mandate, I don’t think constitutionally they could, so I wouldn’t issue a mandate,” Biden said.

“But I’d plead with…I carry my mask with me wherever I go,” the former vice president said. “I’d set an example.”

“It’s about making sure the public is safe and secure, and that is a local decision, but there should be national standards laid out as to how it should be gone about,” Biden said in the interview. “You can’t mandate that. But to set the example on what need to be done.”

Two weeks ago, Harris revealed that Biden’s order for mandatory face masks won’t actually be enforced.

“It’s really a standard. C’mon, nobody’s going to be punished,” Harris said during an interview on NBC’s “Today” show. She added that wearing a face mask is “a sacrifice we have to make.”

During the “Politics Unplugged” interview released on Saturday, Biden was also asked when he would visit Arizona; a valid question since the former vice president has been accused of using a “basement strategy” to avoid overexposure and gaffes.

“I hope to be there, but I’m going to do it responsibly,” Biden said. “I’m not going to do what the president does.”

“I’ve said, ‘I will set an example.’ And I will show up and make sure that I am setting the example of the way in which we should deal with this coronavirus…social distancing and the like… and we’re gonna be doing a lot of that from now through the election,” Biden continued. “But I’m gonna listen to what the scientists and the docs tell me.”

A Morning Consult poll from Sept. 1, shows Biden leading President Donald Trump in the battleground state of Arizona by 9 points, 52% to 42%. In 2016, Trump carried Arizona with 49.5% to Hillary Clinton’s 45.4%.

On “Pat Gray Unleashed,” the guys discuss how a federal mask mandate would be unconstitutional.

Is the voting system going to work?

President Donald Trump encouraged North Carolina voters to test the voting system during the 2020 presidential election. He advocated that voters send in their mail-in ballots early, but to also attempt to vote in-person to see if the mail-in ballot had been tabulated.

Critics said Trump instructed voters to vote twice, which is illegal, but the White House refuted the idea that the president was telling supporters to do “anything unlawful.”

President Trump visited North Carolina on Wednesday to deliver a speech at the Battleship North Carolina to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the end of World War II. Upon arriving at the Wilmington International Airport, Trump addressed a crowd that gathered to welcome the president. He suggested that voters test the integrity of the voting system.

“If you get the unsolicited ballots, send it in, and then go — make sure it counted,” Trump told his supporters. “And if it doesn’t tabulate, you vote. You just vote. And then if they tabulate it very late, which they shouldn’t be doing, they’ll see you voted, and so it won’t count. So, send it in early, and then go and vote. And if it’s not tabulated — you vote. And the vote is going to count.”

President Trump doubled down on his notion of testing the integrity of the system by voting via mail-in ballot, but also attempt to vote in-person if the mail-in vote was not tallied.

“They’ll go out and they’ll vote and they’re going to have to go and check their vote by going to the poll and voting that way because if it tabulates then they won’t be able to do that,” Trump said in an interview with WCET-TV. “So, let them send it in and let them go vote and if their system’s as good as they say it is, then obviously they won’t be able to vote. If it isn’t tabulated they’ll be able to vote so that’s the way it is.”

“I don’t like the idea of these unsolicited votes. I never did. It leads to a lot of problems,” Trump added. “They’ve got 11 problems already on very small contests. I’m not happy about it. At the same time, we’re in court with a lot of it. We’re going to see if it can be stopped.

“But send in your ballots, send them in strong, whether it’s solicited or unsolicited,” the president concluded. “The absentees are fine, we have to work to get them; you know it means something. And you send them in, but you go to vote. And if they haven’t counted it, you can vote. That’s the way I view it.”

52 U.S. Code § 10307 prohibits voting more than once, unless “all prior ballots of that voter were invalidated.”

Whoever votes more than once in an election referred to in paragraph (2) shall be fined not more than $10,000 or imprisoned not more than five years, or both. The prohibition of this subsection applies with respect to any general, special, or primary election held solely or in part for the purpose of selecting or electing any candidate for the office of President, Vice President, presidential elector, Member of the United States Senate, Member of the United States House of Representatives, Delegate from the District of Columbia, Guam, or the Virgin Islands, or Resident Commissioner of the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico. As used in this subsection, the term ‘votes more than once’ does not include the casting of an additional ballot if all prior ballots of that voter were invalidated, nor does it include the voting in two jurisdictions under section 10502 of this title, to the extent two ballots are not cast for an election to the same candidacy or office.

North Carolina Board of Elections Executive Director Karen Brinson Bell issued a letter about voting more than once.

“It is illegal to vote twice in an election. N.C.G.S. § 163-275(7) makes it a Class I felony for a voter, ‘with intent to commit a fraud to register or vote at more than one precinct or more than one time…in the same primary or election,'” the letter read. “Attempting to vote twice in an election or soliciting someone to do so also is a violation of North Carolina law.”

“There are numerous checks in place in North Carolina that prevent people from double voting,” Bell wrote. “Electronic pollbooks with information about who has already voted are used at every early voting site. If a voter tries to check in who has already voted, they will be prevented from voting a regular ballot. A voter will be offered a provisional ballot if they insist on voting, and this ballot will be researched after Election Day to determine whether it should be counted.”

The North Carolina State Board of Elections website states, “If someone has voted an absentee ballot and then shows up to vote in person, the check-in system will alert the poll worker that the person has already voted.”

United States Attorney General William Barr was asked about Trump’s comments by CNN’s Wolf Blitzer on Wednesday afternoon.

“Well, I don’t know exactly what he was saying,” Barr said of Trump’s remarks. “But it seems to me what he’s saying is he’s trying to make the point that the ability to monitor this system is not good and if it was so good, if you tried to vote a second time, you would be caught if you voted in-person.”

Then Barr vigorously condemned anyone advocating for mail-in voting and said lawmakers are “playing with fire” because of the threat of widespread fraud.

“This is playing with fire. We’re a very closely divided country here. And people have to have confidence in the results of the election and the legitimacy of the government, and people trying to change the rules to this to this methodology which, as a matter of logic is very open to fraud and coercion, is reckless and dangerous and people are playing with fire,” Barr said on CNN’s “The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer.”

“The only time the narrative changed is after this administration came in. But elections that have been held with mail have found substantial fraud and coercion,” Barr explained. “For example, we indicted someone in Texas — 1,700 ballots collected from people who could vote — he made them out and voted for the person he wanted to, OK, because, that kind of thing happens with mail-in ballots.”

Blitzer claimed that there is no evidence of widespread mail-in voting fraud.

“We haven’t had the kind of widespread use of mailing ballots as being proposed,” Barr replied. “We’ve had absentee ballots from people who request them from a specific address. Now what we’re talking about is mailing them to everyone on the voter list when everyone knows those voter lists are inaccurate.”

On the topic of media coverage, the attorney general told Blitzer, “The media should be fair and balanced no matter who the president is. [It] doesn’t give the media license to lie the way a lot of the media is.”

“I can speak for us, we are fair and balanced,” Blitzer said of CNN.

Barr responded with a chuckle and said, “OK.”

White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany said that President Trump was not advocating that people “do anything unlawful” when it comes to voting.

“The president is not suggesting anyone do anything unlawful. What he said very clearly there is make sure your vote is tabulated and if it is not, then vote,” McEnany said Thursday in an interview on Fox News.

“Basically, when you get an absentee ballot and you send it in, there are poll books and it is recorded that you have in fact voted,” McEnany added. “And if you show up at a polling site, they look at the poll book and say your vote has been counted. He wants verification.”

Then there was the time Obama said: ‘It’s the post office that’s always having problems’

Former President Barack Obama accused President Donald Trump of purposely attempting to sabotage the U.S. Postal Service in an effort to alter the results of the 2020 presidential election.

“What we’ve seen in a way that is unique to modern political history is a president who is explicit in trying to discourage people from voting,” Obama said during an appearance on his former campaign adviser David Plouffe’s podcast on Friday. “What we’ve never seen before is a president say, ‘I’m going to try to actively kneecap the postal service to encourage voting and I will be explicit about the reason I’m doing it.'”

He added, “That’s sort of unheard of.”

The unfounded accusation was immediately amplified by the media, and the conspiracy theory took hold on social media. Even pop music singer Taylor Swift parroted the unsubstantiated allegation.

A photo from Portland of a truck with several USPS mailboxes in the bed went viral last week.

Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden embraced the conspiracy theory that mailboxes were being collected in Portland as a form of voter suppression for the election in November.

“They’re going around literally with tractor trailers picking up mailboxes,” Biden said at a virtual fundraiser. “You oughta go online and check out what they’re doing in Oregon. I mean, it’s bizarre!”

USPS spokeswoman Kimberly Frum told The Hill that the removal of mailboxes is common.

“Historically, mailboxes have been removed for lack of use and installed in growth areas,” Frum said. “Relocating low-use boxes to high traffic areas such as shopping centers, business parks, grocery stores, etc. for increased customer convenience.”

“When a collection box consistently receives very small amounts of mail for months on end, it costs the Postal Service money in fuel and workhours for letter carriers to drive to the mailbox and collect the mail,” she continued. “Removing the box is simply good business sense in that respect. It is important to note that anyone with a residential or business mailbox can use it as a vehicle to send outgoing mail.”

USPS spokesman Steve Doherty told Boston.com that many mailboxes are being repaired or replaced with newer ones. “These trucks are on the street daily,” Doherty said. “They’re part of our field maintenance fleet.”

“This is why you may see one box on a corner that previously may have had two or three side by side,” Doherty continued. “With declining letter volumes, we try to keep the system efficient.”

“In short – this is all routine maintenance,” Doherty concluded. “There’s no effort underway to reduce collection boxes.”

In fact, between 2011 and 2016, there were roughly 14,000 USPS mailboxes removed, which was during the Obama-Biden administration.

A 2009 Washington Post article stated, “In the past 20 years, 200,000 mailboxes have vanished from city streets, rural routes and suburban neighborhoods – more than the 175,000 that remain.”

“The U.S. Postal Service says it removes ‘underperforming’ mailboxes – those that collect fewer than 25 pieces of mail a day – after a week-long ‘density test,'” the report read, echoing what Frum said last week.

Because of the hysteria over the relocated mailboxes, the USPS said they would not remove any boxes until after the election.

“We are not going to be removing any boxes,” USPS spokesman Rod Spurgeon told NBC News. “After the election, we’re going to take a look at operations and see what we need and don’t need.”

However, it wasn’t only mailboxes that were on the chopping block during the Obama-Biden administration, 3,653 post offices were targeted to be shut down, according to a 2011 Washington Post article. The United States Postal Service ultimately decided against closing the nearly 3,700 post offices, and cut costs by reducing operating hours.

The USPS was looking to cut costs because it was hemorrhaging money, as the mail delivery service has been doing for decades.

The General Accounting Office, a government agency that provides auditing and analysis for Congress, said, “USPS financial viability continues to be high risk because USPS cannot fund its current level of services and financial obligations from its revenues.”

Between fiscal years 2007 and 2019, the USPS netted losses of roughly $78 billion, despite receiving approximately $18 billion each year from American taxpayers.

“USPS’s overall financial condition is deteriorating and unsustainable,” the GAO’s 2019 High-Risk update read. “USPS’s total unfunded liabilities and debt have grown to double its annual revenue.”

Even Obama knew that the United States Postal Service was a money pit.

In 2016, then-President Obama proposed that the USPS slash 12,000 jobs.

In 2009, Obama compared the USPS with private mail carriers, and pointed out that they were thriving while the USPS consistently struggled.

“I mean, if you think about it, UPS and FedEx are doing just fine, right? No, they are,” Obama said at a town hall meeting in New Hampshire. “It’s the post office that’s always having problems.”

The National Association of Postal Supervisors President Ted Keating was irked by Obama’s USPS insult and fired off a letter to the president.

Keating reportedly said there was “collective disappointment that you chose the Postal Service as a scapegoat and an example of inefficiency.”

“Your negative references to the Postal Service without knowledge of the facts was a disservice not only to the members of our organization, but to all postal employees,” Keating wrote.

It appears that Obama also tried to kneecap the postal service in some ways.

Trump said Biden would be on the “ground crying for mommy” if he was interviewed by Wallace.

Fox News host Chris Wallace called out presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden on Sunday for turning down an interview. The challenge issued by Wallace arrives a week after President Donald Trump sat down with Wallace in what was at times a contentious interviederw35wqw.

“In our interview last week with President Trump, he questioned whether his Democratic opponent Joe Biden could handle a similar encounter,” said Wallace at the end of his “Fox News Sunday” show. “Well this week we asked the Biden campaign for an interview, and they said the former vice president was not available.”

President Trump retweeted a video clip of Wallace announcing that the Biden campaign rejected his interview invitation.

During Trump’s interview with Wallace last Sunday, the president questioned whether Biden could handle the same scrutiny that he received during the interview.

“Let Biden sit through an interview like this,” Trump said last week. “He’ll be on the ground crying for mommy. He’ll say, ‘Mommy, mommy, please, take me home.'”

At one point during the at-times contentious interview, the president asked his staffers to fact-check the Fox News host.

After the interview aired, Wallace credited Trump for fielding his questions for an hour.

“The fact is, the president is out there. He’s out there in this broiling heat with me for an hour, he took all the questions,” Wallace told his colleague Bret Baier. “You can like his answers or dislike them but he had answers and Joe Biden hasn’t faced that kind of scrutiny, hasn’t faced that kind of exposure.”

The last time that Biden sat down for an interview with Wallace was on March 1, two days before Super Tuesday, at a time when he wasn’t a lock to win the Democratic primary. In that interview, Biden accidentally called the Fox News host “Chuck,” possibly confusing him with NBC’s Chuck Todd.

Last week, President Trump received a much less challenging interview when he spoke to Barstool Sports President Dave Portnoy. In the very casual, matter-of-fact conversation, Trump revealed that he “often” regrets sending out certain tweets or retweets.

Biden seems to have lingering issues with frequent gaffes, which has sparked speculations that he may have a cognitive impairment. A new survey from Rasmussen Reports found that 20% of Democrats and 38% of all likely U.S. voters believe that Biden suffers from some sort of cognitive impairment.

BlazeTV’s Sara Gonzales, host of “News and Why it Matters,” wants to know what is happening with Biden’s speech issues.

Some states had 77% of their coronavirus deaths connected to nursing homes

Nearly half of all COVID-19 deaths in the United States are connected to nursing homes and long-term care centers, according to a new report from the New York Times.

The analysis found that there were more than 54,000 residents and workers at nursing homes and long-term care centers who have died from coronavirus-related illnesses. There were over 282,000 people infected at 12,000 senior facilities across the country. COVID-19 cases at nursing homes made up only 11% of all COVID-19 cases, but accounted for approximately 43% of the total U.S. deaths.

There were 24 states that had more than half of all COVID-19 deaths linked to nursing homes. New Hampshire was the highest at 80% of coronavirus deaths connected to long-term facilities, followed by Minnesota at 77%, Rhode Island at 77%, and Connecticut at 73%.

New York was only at 21%, but they have by far the most total coronavirus deaths in the U.S. with over 31,000 as of Sunday afternoon. New York has recorded the most coronavirus-related nursing home deaths with 6,250, followed by Massachusetts at 5,115, and Pennsylvania at 4,518. That’s compared to only 293 in New Hampshire and 715 in Rhode Island.

“I don’t know if we’ve gotten a full and correct accounting of how many people died of COVID-19 in nursing homes and how many nursing residents transferred to hospitals died of COVID,” state Senate ­Finance Committee Chairwoman Liz Krueger (D-Manhattan) told the New York Post.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said the criticisms that he has received over the thousands of nursing home-related coronavirus deaths are politically-based. Cuomo appeared on “Meet the Press” on Sunday, where the Democratic governor dodged taking responsibility in nursing home fatalities.

“I’ve taken political heat, OK. There’s facts and then there’s politics,” Cuomo told NBC News’ Chuck Todd when asked if senior centers were safe.

Cuomo blamed the nursing home deaths in New York on “staff that got infected and brought it in.”

“But in New York, we’re No. 46 in the nation in terms of percentage of deaths at nursing homes compared to the total percentage. By the New York Times, we’re No. 46,” Cuomo said, referring to the New York Times report. “So, it’s been unfortunate. In every state, we have to do more. We have to figure it out, but if they want to point fingers, not at New York. We’re No. 46. You have 45 other states to point fingers at first.”

“They are as safe – well, in this state we’re testing every week every nursing home employee,” Cuomo told Todd. “So you could argue that they are safer than a senior citizen at home who is receiving care at home. The safest environment? My mother? Stay home, don’t see anyone. If you are at home and you have an aide coming in, that aide is not tested. In a nursing home, the staff is being tested once a week. And seniors do have to be careful, wherever they are.”

A report from the Associated Press in May found that more than 4,300 recovering COVID-19 patients were sent to nursing homes and long-term care facilities under Cuomo’s directive.

Cuomo’s directive on March 25, which was in place until it was rescinded on May 10, sent coronavirus-infected elderly patients who were discharged from hospitals to “New York’s already vulnerable nursing homes.”

Autonomous: adjective – having the right or power of self-government an autonomous territory.

Early Saturday morning, two men were shot in Seattle’s Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone, one later died from his gunshot injuries. One of the prominent leaders of the CHAZ is enraged that Seattle EMT’s refused to enter the autonomous zone, but emergency officials explain why medics didn’t enter the “self-governed” area.

A Seattle rapper named Raz Simone is allegedly one of the leaders of the CHAZ. Simone gained national notoriety following the George Floyd protests after he was one of the early organizers of the autonomous zone in Seattle.

He was labeled as a “warlord” by many after video emerged of him screaming, “This is war!” into a megaphone and ordering “armed paramilitaries to guard the barricades in shifts.”

The City Journal said the AK-47-wielding activist was “filmed allegedly assaulting multiple protestors who disobeyed his orders, informing them that he was the ‘police’ now, sparking fears that he was becoming the de facto warlord of the autonomous zone.” Simone has since denied that he is a “warlord.”

Following Saturday’s shooting inside the Capitol Hill Organized Protest area, Simone fired off an angry tweet attacking Seattle medics for not venturing into the autonomous zone to help the shooting victims.

“Medics refused to help even after people in the CHOP begged,” Simone tweeted. “They let our bro bleed out for 30 minutes till he died. F*** politics. F*** your currupt system.”

The Seattle Fire Department released a statement explaining why the emergency medical technicians did not enter the CHAZ.

“On June 20, 2020 at approximately 2:19 a.m., 9-1-1 received reports of a shooting at 10th Ave and E. Pine St. SPD officers responded to the scene and SFD dispatch was notified,” the statement read. “Between 2:26 and 2:28 a.m. SPD officers staged at 12th Ave and Cherry St. and initially entered the scene but were unable to secure the location for SFD medics.”

The Seattle Fire Department said they “needed SPD presence to enter the scene” to ensure the safety of the medical technicians.

“Due to SFD’s existing policy of staging and requesting law enforcement to first secure the scene before entering for scenes of violence, SFD units staged at Broadway and Pine St. at 2:25 a.m.,” the Seattle Fire Department stated. “This is a standard procedure for any scene of violence and is also currently in place for any fire and medical emergency inside the area deemed the CHOP due to firefighter safety.”

Both shooting victims received medical attention from volunteer CHOP medics, and were transported to the Harborview Medical Center, where one man was pronounced dead, and the other was said to be in critical condition.

Residents of the CHAZ attempted to block entry to Seattle police officers who wanted to help the shooting victims and get them medical attention by securing the area for the SFD. Seattle police entered the CHAZ between 2:26 and 2:28 a.m., but were told to leave the autonomous zone because the first victim was already taken to the hospital. CHOP inhabitants created a human wall to prevent the cops from advancing.

“Officers attempted to locate a shooting victim but were met by a violent crowd that prevented officers safe access to the victims,” a statement from the Seattle Police Department read. “Officers were later informed that the victims, both males, had been transported to Harborview Medical Center by CHOP ‘medics.'”

The Seattle Police Department shared a video of the shooting scene as well as bodycam footage of cops entering the CHOP, where they were greeted by a mostly aggressive crowd.

There was reportedly a fight between numerous people inside the CHAZ before the shooting, according to Post Millennial editor-at-large Andy Ngo.

Seattle’s Democratic Mayor Jenny Durkan recently said that the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone “is not a lawless wasteland of anarchist insurrection – it is a peaceful expression of our community’s collective grief and their desire to build a better world.”

Dr. Birx was allegedly worried that the CDC was inflating coronavirus statistics, such as mortality rate and case count

Dr. Deborah Birx allegedly criticized the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention last week. During a coronavirus meeting on Wednesday with Robert Redfield, the director of CDC, Birx, said, “there is nothing from the CDC that I can trust,” The Washington Post reported.

Birx, who is the White House coronavirus task force response coordinator, reportedly said that the CDC was inflating COVID-19 statistics by up to 25%.

“Birx and others were frustrated with the CDC’s antiquated system for tracking virus data, which they worried was inflating some statistics — such as mortality rate and case count — by as much as 25 percent, according to four people present for the discussion or later briefed on it. Two senior administration officials said the discussion was not heated,” the newspaper reported.

“The flare-up came two days after it was reported that an internal government model, based on data from the CDC and other agencies, projected the daily death count would rise to 3,000 by June 1,” the Post reported.

The 3,000 projected daily COVID-19 deaths number was taken from a report by Justin Lessler, as associate professor of epidemiology at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. He created the novel coronavirus model but says the report was a “work still in progress.” Lessler wasn’t sure how his research was turned into a slide deck by government officials, or how it first appeared in the New York Times last week.

In a statement, Birx commented on the report: “Contrary to data from Johns Hopkins, which shows daily coronavirus deaths in the U.S. staying steady at 2,000 per day for several weeks. Mortality is slowly declining each day.”

The U.S. had 1,422 confirmed coronavirus deaths on Saturday and 1,687 on Friday.

Last week, Birx said that the medical community might have underestimated the number of asymptomatic cases of coronavirus at the beginning of the pandemic.

“I think we’re learning every day about the virus and how it interacts with us as human hosts,” Birx told Fox News host Jeanine Pirro. “And that’s been very important, to constantly be triangulating data.”

“I think we underestimated, very early on, the number of asymptomatic cases. And I think we’re really beginning to understand there are people that get infected — that those symptoms are so low-grade that they don’t even know that they’re infected,” Birx added. “And we’re beginning to see that with the New York studies of their zero-antibody studies.”

In early March, the World Health Organization said that the mortalirty rate for COVID-19 was 3.4%.
