Across the nation it seems everyone is watching Michigan in the 2020 Presidential race. The focus on Michigan came after a Michigan county flipped back to its historically republican roots when a manual recount discovered that roughly 6000 votes for President Donald Trump had been given to Democratic candidate Joe Biden.

On Saturday Michigan’s Republican state joint legislature will hold a meeting to look into what some say are serious concerns with the ballot counting machines used in many counties in the state.

Officials with Antrim County posted updated results showing President Trump won the county with 9,783 votes making up 56.46% of ballots cast, as reported. Moreover, Joe Biden had only earned 7,289.

We will investigate the elections process and seek to determine whether improprieties exist.

According to reports Antrim County officials have blamed the county’s election software saying totals counted did not match tabulator tapes. A local news station 6 News learned the “Dominion Voting System” is used Antrim County. It is also used in 64 other counties across the state of Michigan. This presents a huge problem and one that the Trump campaign is going to take up in the courts.

Even though Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson, told the local 6 News the massively skewed results were the result of a “county user error” not a software issue, Republican state leaders aren’t buying it and want a manual recount of the other counties considering how close the two candidates are in ballot counts.

That same voting system is also used in 64 other counties across the state including, Ingham, Jackson, and Shiawassee, locally. The New York Post is reporting that “Biden holds a substantial 2.5 percent lead over Trump in Michigan, with 95 percent of the vote counted. Trump won the state by less than one percentage point in 2016.”

There can be no question that based on what was discovered in Antrim County the Trump campaign, along with the Republican leadership in Michigan have every right to demand recounts of the other counties that used the voter counting machines.

It’s the only way to ensure the sanctity of the vote and ensure that whoever won the state did so without any question of improprieties or mistakes.

“One candidate seems to want to pour gas on every potential fear and doubt … while the other seems uninterested in some very troubling reports and witness testimony,” tweeted State Sen. Ed McBroom, chairman of the Senate Oversight Committee. “We will investigate the elections process and seek to determine whether improprieties exist.”

Oklahoma passes bill banning majority of abortions from ‘moment of fertilization’

Oklahoma’s Republican Governor Kevin Stitt signed a bill into law on Wednesday which bans virtually all abortions “from the moment of fertilization.”

“I promised Oklahomans that as governor I would sign every piece of pro-life legislation that came across my desk and I am proud to keep that promise today. From the moment life begins at conception is when we have a responsibility as human beings to do everything we can to protect that baby’s life and the life of the mother,” Stitt said in a statement. “That is what I believe and that is what the majority of Oklahomans believe.”

The state legislature first approved the bill, which goes into effect immediately, last week. It bans abortions from the moment of fertilization, except for in cases where rape or incest occurred, or where the mother’s life is in danger.

The law also allows for private citizens to sue doctors or those who participate in “producing an abortion for up to $10,000, mimicking the enforcement mechanism in Texas’s fetal heartbeat law” reports National Review.

Under the new law it is a felony offense to perform an abortion, “which will take effect in August unless a court challenge blocks it.”
