"Today, the Supreme Court ruled in favor of Minnesota voters by reversing the injunction against the Ballot Harvesting ban.
"Over the past few months, we've watched as Democrats have used COVID-19 as a means to circumvent the legislative process and instead change our election laws through the courts. Today's ruling upholds the ballot harvesting ban and brings some much-needed integrity back to our election system.
"While many recent rulings leave the door open to rampant fraud, today, voters can rest a little easier knowing that ballot harvesting remains illegal thanks to our joint efforts with the Republican National Committee."###
Today the voters of Minnesota received a big win in a preliminary injunction ruling from the Minnesota Supreme Court. The Supreme Court ruled in our favor in the DSCC vs. Simon Ballot Harvesting case.
Ballot Harvesting will REMAIN ILLEGAL this election cycle!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
What does this mean in basic terms?
Minnesota State Law currently says that you can help collect ballots for up to three people. Example: My 96-year-old grandpa may need help, so I can help him and turn in his ballot. But, I can do that for only up to three people in my life.
The Democrats lawsuit attempted to change this election law - from three people to unlimited. What they sought was to be able to go hundreds of people's doors and collect ballots and then dump in thousands of ballots on election day.
What is also of concern with Ballot Harvesting is the Democrats also try and fill out these ballots or change their ballots before dumping them in the ballot return boxes.
The Democrats attempt to change election laws in Minnesota to steal this election took a big hit today.
This ensures to keep Minnesota's elections FAIR AND FREE on November 3rd!!!
We should all be encouraged that this left appointed Supreme Court in Minnesota put the law above politics. FREEDOM!

Transmission of SARS-CoV-2
Note: A COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2) particle is 0.125 micrometers (μm); influenza virus size is 0.08 – 0.12 μm; a human hair is about 150 μm.
*1 nm = 0.001 micron; 1000 nm = 1 micron; Micrometer (μm) is the preferred name for micron (an older term)
1 meter is = 1,000,000,000 nm or 1,000,000 microns

*Data from a University of Illinois at Chicago review
“Masks may confuse that message and give people a false sense of security. If masks had been the solution in Asia, shouldn’t they have stopped the pandemic before it spread elsewhere?”
*The first randomized controlled trial of cloth masks. https://bmjopen.bmj.com/content/5/4/e006577
*A study of 4 patients in South Korea
Known patients infected with SARS-CoV-2 wore masks and coughed into a Petrie dish. “Both surgical and cotton masks seem to be ineffective in preventing the dissemination of SARS–CoV-2 from the coughs of patients with COVID-19 to the environment and external mask surface.”
*Singapore Study – Few people used mask correctly
Overall, data were collected from 714 men and women. About half the sample were women and all adult ages were represented. Only 90 participants (12.6%, 95% CI 10.3%-15.3%) passed the visual mask fit test. About three-quarters performed strap placement incorrectly, 61% left a “visible gap between the mask and skin,” and about 60% didn’t tighten the nose-clip.
*A 2011 randomized Australian clinical trial of standard medical/surgical masks
Medical masks offered no protection at all from influenza.
Conclusions from Organizations
The World Health Organization (WHO):
“Advice to decision makers on the use of masks for healthy people in community settings
As described above, the wide use of masks by healthy people in the community setting is not supported by current evidence and carries uncertainties and critical risks.”
“Medical masks should be reserved for health care workers. The use of medical masks in the community may create a false sense of security, with neglect of other essential measures, such as hand hygiene practices and physical distancing, and may lead to touching the face under the masks and under the eyes, result in unnecessary costs, and take masks away from those in health care who need them most, especially when masks are in short supply.”
“Masks are effective only when used in combination with frequent hand-cleaning with alcohol-based hand rub or soap and water.”
WHO acknowledges that most people do not use masks properly.
Dr. Nancy Messonnier, director of the Center for the National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases:
“We don’t routinely recommend the use of face masks by the public to prevent respiratory illness,” said on January 31. “And we certainly are not recommending that at this time for this new virus.”
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)
In March 5, 2019 regarding the flu: “Masks are not usually recommended in non-healthcare settings; however, this guidance provides other strategies for limiting the spread of influenza viruses in the community:
From the New England Journal of Medicine
“We know that wearing a mask outside health care facilities offers little, if any, protection from infection. Public health authorities define a significant exposure to Covid-19 as face-to-face contact within 6 feet with a patient with symptomatic Covid-19 that is sustained for at least a few minutes (and some say more than 10 minutes or even 30 minutes). The chance of catching Covid-19 from a passing interaction in a public space is therefore minimal. In many cases, the desire for widespread masking is a reflexive reaction to anxiety over the pandemic.”
