A Virginia health official is warning of a “severe public health threat” if a planned campaign rally for President Donald Trump goes forward Friday evening.

Dr. Natasha Dwamena, a Department of Public Health district director, said in a letter Thursday that the 4,000 people expected to attend Trump’s rally at the Newport News/Williamsburg International Airport would be breaking Gov. Ralph Northam’s executive order generally banning gatherings of more than 250 people. She said the rally should be canceled, rescheduled or scaled down to comply with the governor’s order.

“The rally poses a concerning public health risk,” Dwamena said in the letter, which was addressed to the private company that leases the hangar where the rally is set to take place.

Hours before Trump was to arrive on Friday, Northam announced that he and his wife Pamela Northam had tested positive for the virus. Northam’s office said he is not experiencing any symptoms and Pamela Northam is experiencing mild symptoms.

Northam’s top health and transportation aides also sent letters Thursday to airport officials around the state reminding them that they have “the authority to enforce” the state’s laws.

But it’s unlikely to make a difference, as the Trump campaign has routinely flouted public health guidelines intended to halt the spread of COVID-19. Trump has tried to use this summer’s mass protests over racial injustice and police misconduct as cover for his rallies, making the case that, if demonstrators can gather en masse, so can his supporters.

John Fredericks, a conservative radio host and chairman of the Virginia delegation for the Trump campaign, said Democrats are trying to block the rally for political reasons.

“Panic has set in amongst Virginia Democrats,” Fredericks said. Northam is a Democrat.

Hillary Clinton easily won Virginia in 2016, and the state has not been a focal point of either campaign this year. But Fredericks said the internal polling data he sees each morning shows the race tightening to the point where he said it’s now winnable for Trump.

Trump’s campaign has insisted it takes appropriate health precautions, including handing out masks and hand sanitizer and checking the temperatures of rallygoers. But many of his campaign rallies have seen thousands of maskless supporters standing shoulder to shoulder, something Dwamena noted in her letter.

"Some things are apparent. Where government moves in, community retreats, civil society disintegrates and our ability to control our own destiny atrophies. The result is: families under siege; war in the streets; unapologetic expropriation of property; the precipitous decline of the rule of law; the rapid rise of corruption; the loss of civility and the triumph of deceit. The result is a debased, debauched culture which finds moral depravity entertaining and virtue contemptible."

This was the one debate (that I know of) between Gade and Warner

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pq4-U-DGk8s



adding: of course I'm biased, but I thought Gade was very effective in the above debate

We will keep him comfortable while Tea Party officials discuss whether to provide any further treatment.

https://www.breitbart.com/2020...wo-absentee-ballots/


Over 1,000 Virginia voters who sought an absentee ballot to vote received an additional ballot in the mail , raising further concerns about possible electoral fraud in the November election.

Fairfax saw the majority of the duplicate ballots, with about 1,000, out of roughly 1,400 across the state. Another 300 were sent to voters in the city of Richmond and 100 in Henrico County, just to the north.

(all heavy DEM)



Officials blamed the confusion on label printing machines that jammed, erroneously causing some to be duplicated when entire pages were reprinted due to damage to just some of the labels. “Before the supervisors caught it, the people applying the labels applied them to the entire sheet of labels rather than just pulling out the ones that should have been processed,” Fairfax County Registrar Gary Scott told NBC 4

“We knew the Democrats’ many last-minute changes to our election law would make our elections less secure, but no one could imagine voters receiving two ballots,” Virginia Republican Party chairman Rich Anderson said in a statement.

Same goes for Richmond. Very curious, isn't it?

"Maybe he's concentrating ad funds on the NoVa area, but we (my group at work) are of the opinion he could really stand to get some air time out here in the mountains too."

I emailed Daniel Gade about this. There is a reality we need to face, and a reality we need to overcome.

Warner will out spend Gade by a factor of 8x to 10x. That is the reality.

So you will see very significantly more Warner ads than Gade ads.

How do we overcome that ?

It all hinges on grassroots energy and action. It hinges on us.

1.

Keep spreading the word about the election and the Gade campaign. Use email, letters, phone calls, face to face. Any effort, no matter how small, helps us to win.

Remember a fundamental campaign rule - a political message is much more effective when someone hears it from a person they know and consider honest .

That is why communicating w friends, neighbors, coworkers & relatives is so powerful.

2.

Share that Gade/Warner debate video w as many as you can. Link:

https://youtu.be/pq4-U-DGk8s

Gade did a great job. Warner comes off as the swarmy full-DEM person that he is. For a first time politician, Gade was very effective in his delivery, timing, and facts.

3.

If you have a few $ to spare, send a contribution to Gade. Every little bit helps and don't hesitate because you think your contribution is too small to make a difference. It all helps.

gadeforvirginia.com

4.

Contact your local Republican Party and the VA REP Party. Ask them what they are doing to get Gade elected.

Bottom line: No cavalry is coming to save us. We are the cavalry. Saddle up.

Thank you, sdy.

I'm spreading the materials you sent me -- some of the peeps at work are mighty excited about a chance to unseat Warner.

I hadn't seen the debate video -- thank you for that link. I'll watch it momentarily, and share it wide.

One of the fellows at work is active with the local Republican Party group, and we've talked a good bit about Dr. Gade and the necessity of getting him elected.

We're working on it, sir!




God bless America.

To my Central Virginia friends:
Daniel Gade, our Republican Candidate for US Senate, will be in Rustburg on Sunday, October 18, from 12:30PM to 2:00PM. We are very fortunate to have this opportunity to meet our candidate for senate.

Holding and expanding GOP control of the US Senate is critical! Remember, the current Senate majority prevented Nancy Pelosi, Adam Schiff, and Jerry Nadler's attempt to impeach our president. Also, never forget that the US Senate is the body that approves nominees to the US Supreme Court.

The location is Del. Matt Fariss's "Haybarn Atop Hyland Farm" at 1287 Lynbrook Road, Rustburg. Don't worry, Lynbrook Rd is no longer blocked for construction. See the attached document for details.

Admission is free but I encourage contributions to help our candidate compete against Mark Warner, the wealthiest member of the US Senate, who is supported by out of state Billionaires and PACs.

Also, you can join me in contributing on-line at 'GadeForVirginia.com' or send contributions to "Gade for Virginia, Inc., 7330 Staples Mill Rd, #100, Richmond, VA 23228".

This will be our very best opportunity to get to know Daniel Gade, a truly inspiring American Hero and Patriot.

Sincerely,
Doug Barringer, Chairman
Campbell County Republican Committee

Two weeks to the election. Getting very close.

Gade has collected total campaign funds of $ 3.5 million

Warner $ 16.3 million

Most of Daniel Gade's funds came after the primary. A lot of people hold back until they are sure someone will really be the candidate.

And this:

"Our campaign is the only Senate campaign that outraised their incumbent Democrat opponent in Q3.
Thank you, Virginia." Daniel Gade

In a sign of increasing enthusiasm for his race, US Senate Candidate Daniel Gade raised $2.5 million dollars compared to Mark’s $2.2 million dollars in the last quarter.

“The polls are tightening, we are out raising Mark and there is something special happening here in the Commonwealth,” said Daniel Gade. “With 15 days to go until November 3rd, I am extremely confident our campaign is going to shock the nation. Mark’s false negative attacks are a clear indicator he’s feeling the pressure. This is a competitive race and I am honored by all the support we have.”

I'm seeing lots of Gade signs in my area, and saw a Trump/Gade parade rolling through town yesterday afternoon -- probably about 60 vehicles. Cool




God bless America.

https://spectator.org/virginia...ndment-1-bipartisan/

Virginians will be voting on an amendment to the Commonwealth’s Constitution to create a bipartisan commission that will draw congressional and state legislative districts based on the 2020 Census, ideally in time for the House of Delegates races next year. The commission will be comprised of 16 members, eight from each party, equally divided between sitting legislators and citizens. The Virginia Supreme Court would resolve any deadlocks, though both sides have strong incentives to reach compromises before the Supreme Court steps in.

In short, if it passes, Constitutional Amendment 1 will end abusive gerrymandering and promote competitive, fair, bipartisan redistricting in the Commonwealth.

Republican Party of VA favors Amendment 1.

I voted for it recently during "in person" early voting.

Well folks, here we go.

Please be sure to vote tomorrow if you haven't already.

If you know anyone who might be "iffy" about voting, give them a call.

From now on, the polls and probabilities don't matter. Vote every chance you get and be the spark that gets other conservatives to the polls.

No matter what happens tomorrow, we will have a year long battle to take our state back and defeat the most radical and extreme DEM party that has ever existed.

Happy Warriors!


adding: VCDL reports that about 60% of the Virginia vote has already been cast.

The estimates from VCDL are that more DEMs voted early than REPs. They expect election day turn out to heavily favor REPs.

Well I did my part.
I voted straight R and yes to the issues.

I hope Gade beats Warner.
I have not liked Mark Warner since the first week I reported for duty at the Gov. Mansion way back in 2002.

I think Mr. Gade has some good ideas, and will be a breath of fresh air.

I was joking with one of the poll workers who was in Iraq for the elections. I said Mr. Gade is not too bad for an Occifer and branched as a 19K to boot. Well I am biased though since I started as a lowly enlisted 19D.

I wish him the best.
