Democrat Governor Set to Receive an Award After Acting Like a Nazi

Governor Cuomo Trump Vaccine Lockdown New York

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is being awarded the International Emmy Founder’s Award for his daily Covid-19 briefings. The announcement came just days after Cuomo set a limit on Thanksgiving celebrations in the state. No more than ten people are allowed to gather in their own homes. Freedom is under attack.

Governor Cuomo thinks he’s king

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has enacted some of the most draconian Covid-19 lockdown measures in the country. His latest move was to limit Thanksgiving gatherings to a maximum of ten people to slow the spread of the virus during the holiday season.

He also told law enforcement that they must enforce his policies. Remember, these are the same Democrats calling President Trump an Authoritarian. Who’s the real Nazi here? Some New Yorkers are sick and tired of all the lockdowns.

Police break up religious gatherings but allow mobs of thugs to run loose burning, looting and murdering. Cuomo said Trump would need to bring an army if he wanted to visit New York. He also said he would “deck Trump” if he wasn’t Governor. What a classy guy.

But not everyone is upset by New York’s leadership. The International Emmy Founders decided the Governor’s handling of Covid-19 was so incredible that he deserves an award.

During a press conference, CEO of the organization Bruce Paisner said “The Governor’s 111 daily briefings worked so well because he effectively created television shows, with characters, plot lines, and stories of success and failure. People around the world tuned in to find out what was going on, and New York tough became a symbol of the determination to fight back.”

Cuomo will receive the award during the live awards show Monday morning “in recognition of his leadership during the Covid-19 pandemic and his masterful use of television to inform and calm people around the world.” How nice.

Meanwhile, murder is up 40% in New York City compared to last year. There is a mass exodus from New York City as crime spikes and the economy tanks. One New York writer says the city is dead, forever. That’s a bold statement but it may be true. The pandemic has forced a lot of businesses to close and other companies to work remote.

People are realizing they don’t need to live in a crowded, expensive, crime infested city like New York just to find employment. Cities are terrible for your physical and mental health. Rural America is the place to be. In case you missed it, here’s a clip of one of Cuomo’s award winning press conferences.

Supreme Court Justice Shocking Announcement Sends Democrats Running for the Hills

Supreme Court Justice Shocking Announcement Sends Democrats Running for the Hills

Addressing the Federalist Society earlier this month, Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito talked about various issues, including religious liberty, which he believes “is fast becoming a disfavored right.”

Here is Justice Alito’s speech:

[embedded content]

The Supreme Court Justice began his speech by cautioning that, aside from specific references to cases that have come before the Supreme Court, he will not comment on the legality of COVID restrictions, and is not making any statements as to whether the restrictions constitute good policy.

Alito stated that the COVID pandemic has “highlighted disturbing trends that were already present before the virus struck.”

The Supreme Court Justice elaborated on that point, stating that cases involving COVID restrictions have “pointed up emerging trends in the assessment of individual rights. This is especially evident with respect to religious liberty. It pains me to say this, but in certain quarters, religious liberty is fast becoming a disfavored right.”

Democrats’ Hatred of Religious Liberty

Alito mentioned how, when the Religious Freedom Restoration Act was voted on in 1993, the passage was bipartisan, contrasting it with the backlash faced by states that have attempted to pass or passed similar legislation in recent years.

He then turned to “the protracted campaign against the Little Sisters of the Poor,” the Ralph’s pharmacy case, and the Masterpiece Cakeshop case. Alito remarked, “You can easily see the point, for many today, religious liberty is not a cherished freedom, it’s often just an excuse for bigotry and it can’t be tolerated, even when there is no evidence that anybody has been harmed. And the cases I just mentioned illustrate the point. As far as I’m aware, not one employee of the Little Sisters has come forward and demanded contraceptives under the Little Sisters’ plan. There was no risk that Ralph’s referral practice would have deprived any woman of the drug she sought and no reason to think that Jack Phillips’ stand would deprive any same-sex couple of a wedding cake. The couple that came to his shop was given a free cake by another bakery, and celebrity chefs have jumped to the couple’s defense.”

Justice Alito then noted that COVID restrictions which “blatantly discriminated against houses of worship” in California and Nevada were upheld by the Supreme Court with the rationale that the court should defer to the governors. He added that this deference meant that Nevada treated “casinos more favorably than houses of worship.”

“If what I have said so far does not convince you that religious liberty is in danger of becoming a second-class right, consider a case that came shortly after the Nevada case,” Alito continued, pivoting to a discussion of U.S. District Judge Theodore Chuang’s ruling suspending the FDA’s requirement that women who wish to obtain an abortion pill must pick up the drug at a clinic.

Alito told the crowd that Judge Chuang’s rationale was that enforcing the rule would interfere with abortion rights, because some women may not obtain the pill due to fear of catching COVID if they leave their homes. He also remarked that, at the time of the decision, Maryland’s governor had opened many places of business, and “apparently concluded that Marylanders could safely engage in all sorts of activities outside the home… If deference was appropriate in the California and Nevada cases, then surely, we should have deferred to the federal Food and Drug Administration on an issue of drug safety. But no, in this instance, the right in question was the abortion right, not the right to religious liberty, and the abortion right prevailed.”

How COVID Holidays Will Change Our Relationship With Government

On this episode of The Federalist Radio Hour, Assistant Editor Kylee Zempel joins Emily Jashinsky to discuss how the bureaucratic restrictions on the 2020 holiday season will change Americans’ relationship with the government.

“This is the time of year when, take all of the 2020 craziness out of it, we’re going into a time when seasonal depression gets very real. People get really stir crazy. The weather gets pretty bad. And people are just ready to gather with their families,” Zempel said.

While many Americans usually gather together with family and friends, this year is different due to heavy restrictions in certain areas preventing people from even gathering in their own homes. These restrictions, Zempel said, are being enacted by people who aren’t following their own rules.

“The hypocrisy among government officials is just rampant,” Zempel said. “And we’re seeing it now as they’re telling us to lock down for the holidays, but we’ve seen it all throughout coronavirus. It was the reason why us peasant folk weren’t able to go to weddings or attend funerals but why we can have a funeral on Capitol Hill that brings thousands of people together.”

“We’re seeing all of the same hypocrisy now through the holidays and they’re getting away with it,” she added.

Justin Trudeau Spills the Beans about Covid

Covid Lockdown Biden Trudeau Great reset Vaccine

Justin Trudeau just revealed the shocking truth about Covid in a recent address to the United Nations Conference. “This pandemic has provided an opportunity for a reset.

This is our chance to accelerate our pre-pandemic efforts to reimagine economic systems that actually address global challenges like extreme poverty, inequality, and climate change.” One thing is for certain, Covid is going to change the world forever.

Covid is forever

Conspiracy theories have been swirling all year ever since this mysterious virus spread across the globe. Did it really come from bat soup? Or was it a Chinese bioweapon created in a lab then purposely released to destroy the world economy? Are the Covid-19 deaths being downplayed? Or are they being massively inflated? Is the entire thing a hoax to usher in a “great reset?”

The globalists at the U.N. want to re-imagine economic systems and address inequality. How would they do that? With Socialism of course. The Left has been calling for a Universal Basic Income for years.

However, a large portion of Americans reject their Socialist agenda. One way to change their mind is to destroy the economy, close their businesses and take away their jobs.

Make them so poor and desperate that they beg for that government check. Closing small businesses ends up helping the huge corporations. It’s not safe to go outside, so do your shopping online!

Amazon stock has nearly doubled from the same time last year. “COVID-19 has been like injecting Amazon with a growth hormone,” one analyst says.

Do you think Amazon founder Jeff Bezos is anxious to end the lockdowns while his stock is soaring? How about Bill Gates? His pharmaceutical company has been working on a vaccine for the virus.

He thinks 70% of the world’s population must be vaccinated with his vaccine at $3 a pop. You can do the math on that business venture. Gates also says the vaccines won’t be very effective, and it will be a long time before we return to normal.

“Even if the first two or three vaccines are approved, their effectiveness in terms of preventing you from getting sick and not transmitting may not be perfect.” Well that’s not very reassuring Bill. Who in their right mind would inject themselves with this stuff? Maybe stick to making computer software.

gates Covid Vaccine

Bill Gates pandemic vaccine

Is Bill Gates a doctor? An elected official? No. But both Gates and Bezos were quick to congratulate Joe Biden on his election win against President Trump.

In a recent Tweet Gates said, “I look forward to working with the new administration and leaders on both sides in Congress on getting the surging pandemic under control, engaging partners around the world on issues like poverty and climate change, and addressing issues of inequality and opportunity at home.”

Biden has made it clear he’s open to locking down the country again and also issuing a national mask mandate. In a recent interview, Dr Fauci told reporters that “Americans have an independent spirit, but now is the time when they should do what they’re told.”

This little deep state troll must be dizzy from wearing that mask for so long. The spirit of independence is alive and well in every red blooded American, and if they try to force a “great reset” on us they will face a fierce resistance.

It’s clear they want us to shut up, stay home living in fear, take our vaccines, collect our government checks and submit to their agenda. But us patriots will not go down without a fight.

Trump Supporters Plan To March On Washington In Protest Of Election Fraud

One week after crowded gatherings outside of the White House following the mainstream media’s projection of former Vice President Joe Biden’s presidential victory, multiple pro-Trump organizations are scheduled to hold protests, caravans, and marches in the nation’s capital city on Saturday to support President Donald Trump and protest election fraud.

Several groups known as Women for Trump, Million MAGA March, and Stop the Steal DC are planning organized gatherings near the White House and down the National Mall.

A counter-protest held by an organization called Refuse Fascism is scheduled to begin just 30 minutes before most of the pro-Trump events.

Roads will begin to close down starting Thursday evening in anticipation of the flood of people.

Washington D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser said that the city is gearing up for the series of anticipated protests and that police will be on the ground ready to take action if there are clashes.

“We continue to follow those activities and be prepared for those activities,” Bowser said at a press conference on Tuesday. “Our police chief will have a similar posture this weekend as he did last week and we will be there to support peaceful exercise of First Amendment demonstrations.”

Last weekend, hundreds of people took to the D.C. streets and Black Lives Matter Plaza to celebrate the media’s projections of Biden’s presidential victory. Many of the people in the crowd were yelling, dancing, taking pictures, and popping champagne to commemorate Trump’s defeat, ignoring the social distancing and COVID-19 guidelines about mass gatherings.

Even Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer strolled about a New York mass gathering without a mask on Saturday.

While many media outlets and the Biden Campaign were critical of Trump’s popular campaign rallies, saying that they would be superspreader events that cost hundreds of lives, live feeds of crowded celebrations all around the nation were amplified by news outlets, free of any of the shaming that applied to people who protested COVID-19 lockdowns.

Just days after the mass partying at BLM Plaza, D.C. recorded 206 new coronavirus cases on Wednesday, its largest number in one day since May.

Andrew Cuomo: Vaccine is ‘Good News,’ but ‘Bad News’ Because Trump Will Roll It Out

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo told Good Morning America on Monday morning that while the development of an effective coronavirus vaccine was “good news,” it was “bad news” that it would arrive while President Donald Trump is in office.

Cuomo was reacting to news that Pfizer’s coronavirus vaccine had proven more than 90% effective. Stock market futures soared, and President Donald Trump welcomed the news exuberantly. Former Vice President Joe Biden, whom the media have declared the winner of the election, warned Americans that it would be “many more months” before they received it.

Cuomo went further, lamenting the timing of the announcement, because Trump would be managing the vaccine rollout:

George Stephanopoulos: We were talking yesterday about the importance of vaccine distribution in the next two months. What do you make of this news?

Cuomo: Well, it’s good news/bad news, George. The good news is the Pfizer tests look good and we’ll have a vaccine shortly. The bad news is that it’s about two months before Joe Biden takes over, and that means this administration is going to be implementing a vaccine plan. The vaccine plan is very important and it’s probably the most ambitious undertaking since COVID began. … And the Trump administration is rolling out the vaccination plan and I believe it’s flawed. I believe it learns nothing from the past. They’re basically going to have the private providers do it, and that’s going to leave out all sorts of communities that were left out the first time when COVID ravaged them.

Cuomo provided no evidence for his assertion that communities would be “left out” by the vaccine distribution under the Trump administration.

Asked what Biden would do differently, Cuomo struggled to answer, saying that the Trump administration focused on the private sector rather than the government.

He added: “We can’t let this vaccination plan go forward the way that Trump and his administration is designing it because Biden can’t undo it two months later. We’ll be in the midst of it and I’m going — I’ve been talking to governors across the nation about that, how can we shape the Trump administration vaccine plan to fix it, or stop it before it does damage.”

How Pennsylvania Democrats Deliberately Stoked 2020 Election Chaos

I can’t tell you how many texts I’ve received this week from friends and acquaintances across the country asking—usually in all-caps and peppered with profanity—what is going on in Pennsylvania? As a native Philadelphian, and from my current vantage in politically coveted Bucks County, I can see why Americans are demanding answers.

Ballots can be counted up to three days after Election Day? Mailed ballots with no postmark still qualify? Unsupervised drop boxes scattered across cities are entrusted to secure tens of thousands of votes?

Sadly, it’s all true. None of these practices inspires confidence that the standard of “one person, one vote” is being upheld. Nor were these practices valid in any prior general election in Pennsylvania.

Scratching your head as to why we chose the most consequential election in our lifetimes to run an experiment? Here’s what I’ve told my friends: the experiment was a wild success—once you understand that the chaos we’re witnessing was the plan all along, carefully orchestrated by Pennsylvania Democrats, including the governor, party activists, and the state Supreme Court. Here’s how it happened.

In Pennsylvania, Democrat Gov. Tom Wolf used the COVID-19 pandemic as cover for hurrying through new voting rules that bypassed reasonable deadlines or restrictions. The result? Many voters now have deep suspicion about wide-scale voter fraud in Philadelphia.

Republicans and Democrats have long understood the problems with mass mail-in ballots. The usual stages of ballot security are lost: unlike absentee ballots, some people are claiming they received unsolicited mail-in ballots, a practice Pennsylvania does not allow. Could it be ballots are being illegally sent or is it simply that voters forgot they signed up to get them?

Worse, it’s impossible to ensure the ballot is filled out by the voter or with her approval. And when the ballot is submitted, the chain of custody observing that ballot is broken. It’s a recipe for contested election results.

The seeds of public distrust were sowed in June, when Wolf decreed by executive order that mail-in ballots in the primary election could trickle in from certain counties for an extra week. The state Democratic Party followed up in July by suing to similarly extend the general election deadline for mail-in ballots. Their suit also sought to allow unprecedented “drop boxes” to collect mail-ins and to limit the number of election observers.

Wolf’s administration then asked the state’s elected Supreme Court, which is 5-2 Democratic-majority and has become notorious for partisan rulings, to grant all the Democrats’ requests—and they did on Sep. 17. The court went further than expected, granting the Democrats’ deadline extension, approving drop boxes and satellite “election offices” for ballot collection, and even ruling that postmarks could not be used to verify when ballots had been mailed.

In addition, the court removed the Green Party presidential candidate’s name from the state ballot over a technicality, a move that may have shifted Green Party votes to Joe Biden’s camp. In their decision, the justices acknowledged that the new deadline violated state law but claimed that “in light of the current COVID-19 pandemic” such laws could be dismissed.

It got worse. Sensing an opportunity, the Wolf administration pronounced that county officials “are prohibited from rejecting absentee or mail-in ballots based on signature comparison.” On Oct. 23, not long before Election Day, the court approved this last nail in the coffin of election integrity.

On Thursday, Republican Sen. Pat Toomey expressed concern about these unprecedented rule changes that fueled this week’s chaos, making clear that free and fair elections aren’t a partisan issue. Now, the U.S. Supreme Court will have to rule.

But on Oct. 28, the Supreme Court postponed any decision with a 4-4 ruling—excluding newly appointed justice Amy Coney Barrett—that returned the case to its court of origin. At the time, Justice Samuel Alito noted that it is likely “that the state Supreme Court decision violates the Federal Constitution,” opening a possibility that the justices will review the case post-election, with the potential outcome of eliminating thousands of illegal ballots.

On Friday, GOP state House Speaker Bryan Cutler, who noted that the election “confusion is a direct result of the court decisions,” called for a full audit before any certification of the results. Cutler also cited Pennsylvania’s 100,000 provisional ballots—cast when a voter’s eligibility is in question—that further indicated problems with the mail-in system.

Elections decided by the courts is a nightmare scenario for either political party. But Wolf refused to reform the state’s election procedures in concert with the legislature. In October, GOP lawmakers proposed compromise legislation, House Bill 2626, that included several, but not all, of the governor’s proposed changes to Pennsylvania voting laws. Wolf threatened to veto their bill in an all-or-nothing negotiation standoff.

To prevent a future election debacle in Pennsylvania, we need election integrity reform through the normal legislative process. Only legal votes should be counted, and controls should be put in place—like polling place verification and absentee ballot chain-of-custody at every stage.

But Democrats have resisted these reforms for years, creating the present chaos. The U.S. Supreme Court must respond accordingly and assure Pennsylvanians that their election was fair—regardless of the presidential outcome.

10 Ways to Make BANK During the Pandemic

make bank
make bank

We are going through the worst pandemic since 1918, and there really isn’t anyone anywhere that hasn’t felt the negative effects of it. The economy in particular has been devastated and even if you don’t have family members you have lost, you still have to worry about your finances. However, don’t fret.

As a go-getting entrepreneur, there are still a number of ways for you to “make bank” and help keep yourself afloat financially. Take a look at these ten ways:

Take a look at businesses that are being boosted BECAUSE of the current climate.

Even though the ship has probably sailed on investing in businesses that make hand sanitizer, there are still plenty of business ventures that you can begin. For example, now that many areas are easing up on the lockdown, you could begin a cleaning service business.

How about E-learning? Because of this lockdown, there are even brick-and-mortar colleges that are going online. There is now a renewed interest in webinars and other forms of online learning. You also could do business ventures with entertainment apps, virtual healthcare, supply-chain logistics, contactless technology, and even investing in digital wallet technology.

Sell your extra items around the house.

Many individuals were in a decluttering phase even before the pandemic hit. Many professionals were simply tired of wasting their time looking for misplaced items, and they had too. much. stuff.

It was too big of a distraction. Since you have a need to be efficient and you have too much stuff, why not use this to your advantage? For example, you can sell plenty of used electronics on sites such as uSell or Gazelle. This would even work with damaged electronics! Do you have too many clothes? Sell them on thredUP or Poshmark. Moreover, there are plenty of online venues where you can sell your furniture or your books and collectibles.

Do a part-time gig.

No, it’s not the most glamorous thing that you could do to make extra money, but one of the ways you could improve your finances during this pandemic would definitely be in finding a part-time gig. Doing such things as stocking shelves, running a register, or delivering items to customers can offer you a large degree of flexibility during this difficult time.

Consider doing childcare.

There is no question that the pandemic has turned everything on its head. One of these areas would have to be childcare. In many cases, parents still have to go to work, but what do they do about their kids? You could help these parents out in a number of different ways. First of all, you could start your own childcare service.

However, you should be aware that there can be a significant amount of red tape. However, if you stay below a certain number you could do it without any licensing requirements. Another way to get around it would be through simply just watching kids in the parents’ own home.

Capitalize on your expertise.

If you have in-demand skills or expertise, you should put them to good use! If you are a lawyer, accountant, mechanic, or even an antique appraiser, you could potentially make a small fortune on a site such as JustAnswer. Even if you don’t have one of these skills, you still could find freelance work at FlexJobs or PeoplePerHour.

Start running errands.

In this day and age of COVID-19, there are a lot of people who dread venturing out of their house. However, most people realize that they still need essential items such as food.

There is nothing wrong with delivering pizza. Along these same lines, there is nothing wrong with picking up a side hustle such as joining a delivery service such as DoorDash or InstaCart. Additionally, you could even expand this venture and become someone’s personal shopper.

Start sharing your opinion!

There are so many sites out there that would value your opinion. No, the extra money isn’t very much, but every drop in the bucket counts, right? Sites such as Survey Junkie, Vindale Research, or Swag Bucks all will pay you for your thoughts on various issues.

Start redeeming those reward points.

This one is a toughie, especially considering that most of the time these credit card rewards are good for travel-related expenses. However, if you don’t use them, you’re throwing your money away. But how do you use these rewards in the middle of a pandemic? Easy.

Luckily for all of us, these credit card rewards can also be used for such things as subscriptions, identity protection, and other handy treats.

Take a hard look at your recurring expenses.

You probably are surprised that I mentioned this one, but this is much better than just killing time or binge watching something on Netflix or Hulu. No, getting your budget under control isn’t making you new money, but it is at least improving your passive income.

That is why you should take a look at all of your statements and see what needless expenses that you can eliminate.

Invest (Just do it wisely!)

Of course, this is another thing that you might be hesitant to do. However, if you want to avoid the stock market you can still invest in such things as bonds, CDs, or mutual funds. Still want to invest in stocks. That’s okay; just do it with stocks that have a reliable track record.

POTUS Signs New Law That Will Save Millions of Lives

President Trump suicide prevention signing

President Trump just signed a law establishing a new suicide hotline. The hotline number is 9-8-8 and will go live starting in mid 2022. The National Suicide Hotline Designation Act passed in September.

The new law will replace the current ten-digit suicide hotline number which is currently 1-800-273-8255. It’s a good move, as 9-8-8 is far easier to remember, and with the right marketing campaign, this could save a lot of lives.

Suicide hotline in America

The FCC has estimated the costs associated with switching to the new three digit hotline will cost approximately $570 million dollars the first year and another $175 million dollars the second year.

This would cover the call center’s staff and training as well as a new public awareness campaign. Law makers have stressed that the importance of saving American lives will far outweigh the close to $1 billion dollar price tag on the new initiative.

2020 has been a rough year for the economy. Unemployment rose higher in three months of COVID-19 than it did in two years of the Great Recession. Not only are many Americans out of work, they’re also facing the fear of some new unseen enemy. The Covid-19 virus has turned our entire way of life upside-down.

president trump suicide prevention hotline

With the downturn in the economy came a huge spike in mental heath issues. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has reported a rise in substance abuse and suicidal ideation in 2020. Symptoms of anxiety and depression have increased considerably in the United States from the same time last year.

In 2019, approximately 8.1% of American adults reported having feelings of anxiety. That number has risen to 25.5%, a three-fold increase. That is substantial, and it’s no surprise. Many Americans have lost their jobs and businesses due to the pandemic. Many states are forcing small businesses to close, which is totally destroying some American’s only way to earn a living.

Normal way of life shattered

Furthermore, social distancing measures are keeping loved ones away from each other and children out of schools. Our familiar daily routines and normal ways of life have been shattered by this virus and many Americans are finding it hard to cope.

On top of all this, we have protests, riots and civil unrest in cities across the country. Every time you tune into the news it seems to be happening somewhere else. The presidential election is just days away and many Americans are preparing for the worst if their chosen candidate loses.

2020 has been a hard year for many of us but there’s still hope. It’s important to remember that America has been through plenty of hard times before.

A Civil War, several World Wars, depressions, recessions, pandemics and terror attacks. We’ve seen it all, and we’re still here. Americans are strong and brave people. We’ll get through this.

If you or someone you know are feeling depressed or having suicidal thoughts, just know that you are not alone. There are people here to help you. Please, don’t hesitate to call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255) and text “HOME” to 741741 for the crisis line. Crisis support in Spanish is available at 1-888-628-9454.

Keith Ellison Wields Power to Restrict Freedom of Assembly of Political Opponents at Minnesota Trump Rally

The venue for President Donald Trump’s political rally in Minnesota scheduled for Friday will be restricted to only 250 people after Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison put pressure on the business owners of multiple locations.

The rally was initially planned at the Rochester airport, but Ellison’s office demanded a “COVID preparedness plan” from officials from the City of Rochester, Olmsted County, and the Rochester airport, as well as the Republican National Committee to ensure the event was safe.

The event was then moved to Dodge Center, prompting Ellison’s office to ask the Trump campaign and the owner of the building McNeilus Steel for their “COVID Preparedness Plan.”

That prompted the Trump campaign to move the event again, back to the airport.

“Thanks to the free speech-stifling dictates of Gov. Tim Walz and Attorney General Keith Ellison, only the first 250 people will be admitted,” the campaign said in a statement sent late Thursday night.

“Without question, Minnesota Democrats had hoped that the President would simply cancel the event, but he will not allow partisan politicians to deprive people of their First Amendment rights to gather peacefully to hear directly from the President of the United States,” the statement continued.

Trump supporters volunteering for the event immediately expressed their outrage on social media when they found out from organizers that the rally location was canceled. Comparisons were made with the large crowds of protesters last summer over the death of George Floyd.

Minnesota Republican chairwoman Jennifer Carnahan called out Ellison and Gov. Tim Waltz for suppressing the First Amendment right to free assembly.

“Suppression. Interference with our first amendment rights,” she wrote on Twitter. “This is what Gov Tim Walz and Attorney General Keith Ellison are doing by abusing the power of their offices to block us from seeing our President!”

President Trump repeatedly calls his rallies “peaceful protests,” exempting the campaign from coronavirus restrictions on crowds, primarily in Democrat states.

The local politics of rallies during the coronavirus continues to build in states led by Democrats.

Former Vice President Joe Biden will hold a campaign rally at Mitchell International Airport in Milwaukee tomorrow, less than a week after the airport refused to allow President Trump to hold a rally there.

An airport spokesman told Dan O’Donnell, the host of a local talk show in Wisconsin, that Biden’s rally would be much smaller and permitted.

In September, pressure from local officials forced the Trump campaign to shift rally locations in Nevada.

Ellison defended his actions in a statement to ABC5 News as part of his responsibility to keep Minnesotans “safe” from the coronavirus.

“We did not cancel this event: indeed, we have no authority to cancel events and have never cancelled an event,” he said, and added, “As Attorney General charged with enforcing our executive orders, I take very seriously my responsibility to stop it from spreading and cannot not exempt anyone, regardless of their political views, from complying with requirements to keep all Minnesotans safe from it.”
