Trump Campaign Handed Major Win in Pennsylvania

The Pennsylvania State Department has handed the Trump campaign a major win. As the election is less than a week away record amounts of absentee and mail-in ballots are flooding polling places. Recently, guidelines were released advising polling places how to handle ballots received after polling places close at 8 p.m. on Election Day.

The Pennsylvania Supreme Court ruled that polling places will be given a three-day extension to count ballots postmarked on or before Election Day by Friday, Nov. 6 at 5 p.m. The Trump campaign and the Republican National Committee are challenging the ruling with hopes the Supreme Court will rule in their favor. Because a final ruling has not been given the Pennsylvania Department of State has told polling places to separate ballots received before 8 p.m. on Nov. 3 and the ballots received after 8 p.m. and before the cut-off date.

In a report from Townhall:

County boards of elections are not to tally those ballots received between the time that polls close and the end of the three-day extension window. They are, however, to keep a log with the voter’s name, address, date of delivery, whether the ballot’s envelope has a legible postmark and the postmark’s date.

“The Department of State will promptly update the county boards of elections on how to pre-canvass and canvass the segregated ballots and of further developments related to the Court-ordered extension. County boards should remain alert for further direction regarding the ballots subject to the Supreme Court’s decision,” the guidance document concluded.

The Trump campaign celebrated the decision, calling it a “victory.”

“President Trump secured a big victory when the Pennsylvania Secretary of State saw the writing on the wall and voluntarily complied with our injunction request, segregating ballots received after the legislature’s November 3 deadline to ensure they will not be counted until the U.S. Supreme Court rules on our petition,” Justin Clark, Deputy Campaign Manager and Senior Counsel, said in a statement. “The Supreme Court deferred the important issue in this case—whether state courts can change the times, places, and manners of elections contrary to the rules adopted by the state legislature—until after November 3.”

Just go on ahead and say it, they are cheaters, they will commit fraud when and where ever they can, why because that’s what cheaters do. They all need to be introduced to bull whip emotional therapy and have the holy crap beaten out of them, so they wake up, stand up and become a man once and for all, and knock off this girly-man nonsense.

Just watch. The biggest fight of all will be over ballots without legible postmarks arriving after November 3.

I think if they arrive after the third they should be thrown out. look at the months they have had to get their votes in. the ones that come in late are probably from the illegals or dead people.

People have had more than enough time to get their ballots in on time and to get their asses in and vote. there is no excuse for late ballots. once the third has come and you haven’t gotten your vote in or your ballot in on time to bad. the election ends on the third. this exting the time is stupid. if they can protest and burn and loot then they can forget it. they shouldn’t be voting in the first place. we never had this problem before

They had plenty of time to vote by mail and get them in on time. There is no reason to extend this. We should go back to in person voting only, providing a valid ID to prove who you are, and only give absentee ballots to people who cannot physically show up in person on voting day. The rest of this just promotes vote fraud. But I would bet these dems will mix up the envelopes and it will cause another mess that will take the courts to sort out. Are their envelopes prepaid – if so they aren’t usually post marked either.

Those votes will amount to a lot of bogus votes, but the killer is when certain programmed machines flip, or switch thousands of votes from one candidate to the other. Consider the six thousand switch. Six thousand away from Trump, Six thousand to Biden. That is a spread of twelve thousand votes. Do that all over the Nation through these certain machines and it could well be millions of votes! No doubt massive fraud was going on. Trace it back to who set it up and prosecute them. I believe Trump won the election if only valid votes are counted.

How far the mighty democrats have fallen. Now they stoop to lie, cheat and steal power from ‘we the people’ in any way possible. It’s become a sad commentary on their desperate need for power and influence. Poor poor democrats. So so sad.

A vote for a Democrat is a vote for suicide, poverty, and a soup line.

Let us pray that the Judges will be honest and order a manual recount in all disputed states. All the machines similar to the one which flipped six thousand trump votes over to Biden should have to be manually recounted in ALL states as they may have switched a lot more votes over to Biden. All illegal votes, dead folks, and repeaters, should be dumped as invalid.
