Poll: 42% Still Believe in Wearing Masks Outside Despite CDC Update

A significant portion of the public still believes in wearing a mask outside regardless of guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), according to a recent survey.

The survey indicates that forty-two percent of respondents believe everyone in their area should continue to wear a mask regardless of the CDC guidelines.

Of the respondents, 39 percent said everyone should follow the CDC guidelines that state masks are only necessary outdoors when in crowds compared to only 19 percent of respondents who actually believe “everyone should do [what] they want regardless of guidelines.”

Of those who believe in continuing to wear masks, broken down by party, the results were almost even; 36 percent of Republicans and 37 percent of Democrats want everyone around them to wear masks.

Before the poll, the CDC had updated its guidance to state that vaccinated individuals do not need to wear a mask outdoors except in crowded areas. Last week, the CDC made an additional update, saying fully vaccinated people “no longer need to wear a mask or physically distance” and only must do so when required by laws, rules, or regulations, including local businesses and workplace guidance.

The CDC defines a fully vaccinated person as someone who received a second dose in the two-dose series of the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna or two weeks after the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine.

Since the latest update in guidelines, major business chains have revised their own guidelines. Chains such as Trader Joe’sWalmart, and Target have announced they will no longer require customers to wear masks; they did not mention a state by state policy, whereas Costco announced its policy updates will be on a state by state basis.

Last week, the fully vaccinated far-left Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) told her 8.8 million Instagram followers she will “probably” continue to wear a mask from “time to time” despite what the CDC says. She jokingly said masks are also “a nice accessory when you don’t want to do all your makeup.”

The Hill-HarrisX survey was conducted online among 918 registered U.S. between May 10 and May 11. It has a margin of error of +/- 3.23 percentage points. Results were weighted for age, gender, region, race/ethnicity, income, political party, education, ideology, and area type where necessary to align with their actual proportions in the population.

Report: Mexico Offers Biden a ‘Remain in Mexico II’ Border Option

Mexico’s government will open migrant camps to deal with the “humanitarian emergency” caused by President Joe Biden’s welcoming message for Central American migrants, the Los Angeles Times reported Monday.

According to the Times, “Mexico says it plans to open 17 new camps in coming weeks and months in southern states to accommodate migrant families and kids.”

It is not clear if the camps will be used to house migrants who are denied entry at the U.S. border, or if they will only be used for migrants caught at Mexico’s southern border.

Currently, Mexico cannot house and feed the migrants traveling through its territory and those quickly returned from the U.S. under pandemic health protocols known as Title 42, a measure invoked by the Trump Administration and kept in place by the Biden administration.

Last week, Politico reported that Democrats and immigration advocates accuse the Biden-Harris administration of keeping Title 42 in place to limit immigration, not protect the country against the Chinese coronavirus, highlighting another example of different views among the Democrats over how to handle the border crisis. Members from both parties have blasted the Biden administration for not providing any solutions.

On Monday, the Lost Angeles Times reported:

[W]ith most migrants … quickly returned under pandemic health protocols, Mexico is facing its own crisis — an escalating humanitarian emergency caused by what authorities and advocates call an unprecedented increase in migrant families traversing its territory.

The Mexican government has failed to develop a strategy to care for the tens of thousands of migrant women and children expelled by U.S. authorities or in transit or stuck somewhere in Mexico. Instead, Mexican authorities have mostly outsourced the task to an over-stretched patchwork of private and religious charity outfits, medical aid organizations and sundry good Samaritans.

Soon after taking office in January, Biden ended the Remain in Mexico program, which had proven remarkably effective in ending the Catch and Release policy whereby migrants are arrested and subsequently released into the U.S. interior while awaiting their asylum hearings.

President Biden vowed to allow migrants who had enrolled in the program during the Trump administration and were waiting in camps in Mexico back into the United States.

As of May, the Biden administration had released thousands of migrants who had enrolled in the Remain in Mexico program, offering them work permits to take American jobs.

The U.S. is now facing an almost two-decade high in U.S. Border Patrol apprehensions, along with a sharp increase in arrivals of families and unaccompanied minors, the majority from the Central American region known as the Northern Triangle (Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador).

Although the Biden Administration is not applying Title 42 to unaccompanied children and some families while claiming that the border is closed, the historic migrant surge has resulted in the U.S. denying admission to many people, mostly Central Americans, who end up in Mexico.

Echoing some Central American governments, Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador’s (AMLO) administration continues to blame the Biden administration’s immigration policy for the ongoing border crisis at the U.S. southern border.

The LA Times noted:

Mexican officials say that, aside from poverty, crime and other issues in their homelands, migrants are propelled by two factors: Somewhat relaxed border controls under the Biden administration, especially for children; and the belief of some parents that crossing as a family might facilitate entry into the U.S.

Although Mexico is no longer accepting families with small children, it still takes in deported migrants under Biden, who wants the country to take even more.

On Sunday, the

New York Times indicated

that the Biden administration is not using Title 42 to deny admission to a growing wave of economic migrants from

160 countries

outside Mexico and the Northern Triangle region, including Brazil, India, Cuba, and Venezuela.

Under federal law, the U.S. can only provide asylum to groups fleeing political and religious persecution — not to people fleeing poverty. This rule means border agents can deny them access to U.S. asylum courts.

Poll: Overwhelming Majority of Voters Still Aligned with Trump Policies

Republican voters believe former President Donald Trump represents what the Republican party needs to follow on a wide range of issues, according to a recent CBS News/YouGov poll.

For example, 89 percent believe in following Trump’s example on economic issues, and 80 percent say we need to follow Trump’s form of leadership.

Looking deeper, 88 percent say Trump’s stance on immigration issues needs to be followed, including 73 percent of the respondents who said the former president set an example on race issues.

However, when it comes to the left and the media, sixty-nine percent said Trump set the example on how to treat the left, and seventy-seven agreed with the way Trump treated the media.

Additionally, a huge majority (67 percent) of Republican voters believe President Joe Biden is not the legitimate winner of the last presidential election, including 34 percent of respondents who think Republicans who are disloyal to the base should be punished.

The survey also asked about the Republicans’ strategy for winning reelection in 2022 and 2024, which would ultimately help win back the House for Republicans. Fifty-three percent said Republicans need to focus on the “message” to find more people to vote Republican. The poll added,  Republicans “should tell the public about popular policies and ideas, and will win if more people hear about them.”

The CBS News/YouGov survey was taken between May 12 and May 14, questioning 951 self-identifying Republicans who had previously taken a poll with CBS News in 2021. The sample was weighted to represent Republicans in the previous national polls, according to gender, age, race, education, geographic region, 2020 presidential vote, political ideology, and degree of partisan identification. The margin of error is +/- 3.5 percentage points.

Biden Issues Warning to Americans: ‘Those Who Are Not Vaccinated Will End Up Paying the Price’

Throughout the pandemic, the left has insisted on violating Americans’ medical freedom. Even as the danger from COVID-19 wanes, President Joe Biden is warning people who don’t want to do what he wants.

“If the unvaccinated get vaccinated, they will protect themselves and other unvaccinated people around them,” Biden said at the White House on Monday. “If they do not, states with low vaccination rates may see those rates go up, may see this progress reversed.”

There are multiple problems with this statement. First, it implies that it is the responsibility of every American to get vaccinated in order to protect others.

If people choose not to get vaccinated, that decision is made at their own risk, and it is not anyone else’s duty to protect them.

They have the right to make their own decisions, but they also face whatever consequences those may have.

In addition, the suggestion that everyone needs to get vaccinated in order to protect the vulnerable is anti-scientific at its core.

According to the American Journal of Managed Care, Democratic favorite Dr. Anthony Fauci said that “effectiveness is easily as good, if not better” for the vaccine in real-world settings than in clinical trials.

“The efficacy of the vaccine stretches across age groups and is 97.5% effective at preventing severe or critical illness and 96.7% effective at preventing COVID-19 deaths,” the journal reported Monday.

Since the majority of vulnerable people in the United States have already been vaccinated, they are now overwhelmingly protected from the threat of serious illness or death.

Should Biden have issued this warning to unvaccinated Americans?

Yes: 0% (0 Votes)

No: 0% (0 Votes)

This is true whether or not other people around them are vaccinated. If the vaccines are as effective as Fauci says, there is a very minuscule threat to vaccinated people even if they were to come into contact with someone who was unvaccinated and had the disease.

However, Biden continues to advocate forcing the vaccine on every American. He even issued a direct warning to those Americans who choose not to get vaccinated.

“Ultimately, those who are not vaccinated will end up paying the price,” he said.

Immediately after this, Biden admitted the exact reason why his logic is flawed when he said that “the vaccinated will continue to be protected against severe illnesses.”

If that statement is true, and it appears to be so, then why is Biden so concerned with telling everyone else what to do?

Anyone who wants to be vaccinated can be, and they are largely protected from the virus at that point. Biden has been vaccinated himself and is therefore at extremely low risk.

By the same token, anyone who does not want to be vaccinated should be able to choose not to receive the vaccine. This may or may not be a smart decision, but it is one that Americans are afforded under the Constitution.

Furthermore, the argument that their decision could put others in harm’s way has lost almost all merit. Democrats used the same logic when attempting to force Americans to wear masks, but the fact that a very effective vaccine now exists renders that argument even less potent.

Medical freedom has always existed in the United States. Each time flu season rolls around, Americans choose whether or not to get vaccinated, and that has never been a huge problem.

It wasn’t until COVID-19 came around that people started arguing in favor of forcing medical decisions on every American. Such action is both anti-American and anti-scientific.

There is no problem with Biden telling Americans that the vaccine is effective and easy. However, his new rhetoric of “get the vaccine or else…” is crossing the line.

Pence: Biden’s Tax Policies Would Put China First, End the Jobs Boom That Trump Tax Cuts Unleashed

Former Vice President Mike Pence argued in an opinion piece for Fox News on Monday, tax day, that if President Joe Biden’s sock-it-to-American-job-creators tax plan were put in place, it would be a boon to China.

He’s right.

“Under the Trump-Pence administration, we proved that low taxes are the key to creating prosperity for Americans of every background and income group,” Pence wrote.

The passage of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act in December 2017 was the key.

“Within months, our economy took off like a rocket,” Pence recounted. “America gained more than 7 million new jobs, unemployment plummeted to the lowest rate in 50 years, and more than 10 million people were lifted off of welfare — the largest reduction in poverty in modern history.”

As the old adage goes: “The best anti-poverty program is a job.”

“Cutting taxes on American employers was a central part of our efforts to bring jobs and factories back home to the United States — and it worked,” Pence explained.

Do you think Biden’s proposed tax hikes would put China’s economy first?

Yes: 100% (1 Votes)

No: 0% (0 Votes)

“After losing 60,000 factories under the previous two administrations, America gained 12,000 new factories, because employers were no longer driven away by an exorbitant tax burden.”

One of the central components of the Trump tax cuts was cutting the corporate tax rate from 35 percent — the highest in the industrialized world — to 21 percent, more toward the middle.

Prior to the cuts, the combined federal and state effective tax rate averaged 37.5 percent, which dropped to 24.6 percent in 2019, according to the nonpartisan Tax Foundation.

Under Biden’s plan, the combined rate from slightly below China’s 25 percent to well above it at 32.34 percent.

In addition to raising corporate tax rates, Biden reportedly wants to raise capital gains taxes significantly.

The Wall Street Journal editorial board reported the top capital gains tax would go from 23.8 percent to 43.4 percent.

The capital gains tax is a tax on investments, so this policy would be a disincentive to invest, which is what allows businesses to grow and to create jobs.

As with corporate taxes, states also tax capital gains, meaning several of them, including California, New York and New Jersey, would have a combined rate of over 50 percent, according to the Tax Foundation.

“Job growth will trickle to a standstill,” Pence said would happen under Biden’s approach. “Capital investments will be canceled. Fewer products will be Made in the USA. Manufacturers will pack up and head overseas, leaving a hole in the heart of blue-collar communities.”

“Worse yet, China stands to become one of the biggest beneficiaries of the Biden tax hikes,” he added.

With former President Donald Trump’s pro-growth tax and regulatory policies still in place, the economy rebounded strongly following the COVID shutdowns of last spring.

Prior to the COVID-19 shutdowns, the U.S. was experiencing some of its best economic numbers in a long time, including a 3.5 percent unemployment rate, the best since 1969.

In March, the unemployment rate fell to 6 percent from a peak of 14.8 percent in April 2020.

It ticked back up to 6.1 percent last month, with 266,000 jobs added, well short of the nearly one million that some economists anticipated as COVID restrictions continued to lift.

The disappointing number came after Democrats passed and Biden signed into law the $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan Act in March, which increased taxes by $60 billion and extended the enhanced unemployment benefits, set to expire that month, until September.

At least both of these moves are relatively minor in size and scope.

If Biden and the Democrats manage to push through drastically increasing taxes on corporations and investments, it would be disastrous.

“After four years of America First tax and trade policy, our foreign competitors would gladly welcome the self-imposed competitive disadvantage,” Pence concluded.

“China stands to gain thousands of jobs as employers flee the crushing tax and regulatory burden of Joe Biden’s America.”

The Handout That Rocks the Cradle: 88% of Kids Covered by Monthly Payments Starting in July

The Treasury Department said Monday that it will start sending out payments to nearly all families with children in the U.S. beginning on July 15, launching one of the biggest cash distribution schemes ever undertaken by the federal government.

The payment will cover 39 million families, according to the Treasury Department. Nearly 88 percent of children will be covered benefits their parents will automatically receive without the parents needing to take any additional action.

The payments are part of President Joe Biden’s $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief package, which expanded the child tax credit for one year and made it possible to pre-pay the benefits on a monthly basis.

“This tax cut sends a clear and powerful message to American workers, working families with children: Help is here,” Biden said in remarks at the White House.

Qualified families will receive a payment of up to $300 per month for each child under 6 and up to $250 per month for children between the ages of 6 and 17. The child tax credit was previously capped at $2,000 and only paid out to families with income tax obligations after they filed with the IRS.

But for this year, couples earning $150,000 or less can receive the full payments on the 15th of each month, in most cases by direct deposit. The benefits total $3,600 annually for children under 6 and $3,000 for those who are older. The IRS will determine eligibility based on the 2019 and 2020 tax years, but people will also be able to update their status through an online portal. The administration is also setting up another online portal for non-filers who might be eligible for the child tax credit.

The president has proposed an extension of the increased child tax credit through 2025 as part of his $1.8 trillion families plan. Outside analysts estimate that the payments could essentially halve child poverty. The expanded credits could cost roughly $100 billion a year.

Some have proposed that the Biden program be extended permanently, essentially creating a new federal entitlement program that would make American families far more dependent on government payments than any time in U.S. history.

Joe Biden Thinks The Failures Of Big Government Can Be Fixed By… More Big Government

According to the new jobs report that was released last week, the economy appears to be struggling.

“The numbers are out, and on the top line they are way worse than expected. Something seems very off: only 266,000 jobs created in April, and the unemployment rate ticked up to 6.1%, according to the report,” reported Bloomberg

CNBC wrote, “Hiring was a huge letdown in April, with nonfarm payrolls increasing by a much less than expected 266,000 and the unemployment rate rose to 6.1% amid an escalating shortage of available workers. Dow Jones estimates had been for 1 million new jobs and an unemployment rate of 5.8%.”

“Economists were hoping for a figure roughly 1 million jobs larger — making this the biggest miss, relative to expectations, in the history of the payrolls report,” added Axios.

As The Daily Wire reported, “The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics said that nearly 10 million Americans, 9.8 million to be exact, remained unemployed in Biden’s economy.”

In bizarre fashion, Biden suggested that this disastrous jobs report actually stands as evidence in favor of his American Rescue Plan and that “more help is on the way.”

“And so, you know, we’re gonna help schools and children, and child centers across the country as well, accelerate the reopening and that’s underway,” Biden said.

“So look, it’s going to continue to improve,” Biden added. “Today’s report makes clear: Thank goodness we passed the American Rescue Plan. Help is here and more help is on the way, and more help is needed.”

On Twitter, Biden appeared to pivot on his previously positive rhetoric regarding recovery.

We’re still digging our way out of a very deep hole,” he tweeted. “No one should underestimate how tough a battle this is. We still have a job to do here in Washington. The American people are counting on us. So, let’s get it done.”

This strategy is not only a Biden classic, it’s the standard Leftist reaction to their own failures. The solution to all problems is “more government,” and when the problems get worse because of “more government,” the cure is even more government.

Biden’s American Rescue Plan was a $1.9 trillion spending bill and stimulus package passed in early March to supposedly speed up the United States’ economic recovery following the pandemic.

On January 20, Biden announced the plan, “laying out the first step of an aggressive, two-step plan for rescue, from the depths of this crisis, and recovery, by investing in America, creating millions of additional good-paying jobs, combatting the climate crisis, advancing racial equity, and building back better than before.”

“As last month’s jobs report underscored, the virus and our economy are intertwined. We cannot rescue our economy without containing this virus,” the Biden announcement stated in January.

The problem for Biden here is that we are — by almost all available metrics — containing the virus. The economy should be recovering as a result. And yet, the jobs report suggests otherwise.

As The Daily Wire noted, “The U.S. Chamber of Commerce directly blamed the Biden administration’s stimulus spending for the worsening economy, saying that he was paying people to not work.”

“The disappointing jobs report makes it clear that paying people not to work is dampening what should be a stronger jobs market,” the U.S. Chamber of Commerce said. “One step policymakers should take now is ending the $300 weekly supplemental unemployment benefit. Based on the Chamber’s analysis, the $300 benefit results in approximately one in four recipients taking home more in unemployment than they earned working.”

It’s becoming clear that COVID-19 is no longer the roadblock to economic recovery in the United States. Instead, that role is being played by Democrats.

EXCLUSIVE: A Comparison Between Maricopa County Board of Supervisors’ Audits and The Senate Audit – Ultimately There’s No Comparison

The Maricopa County Board of Supervisors (MCBOS) are doing everything possible to disparage the auditors hired by the Arizona Senate and to try and stop the audit. If they believed in the results of the Election in their County they would be welcoming the audit.  

The MCBOS knows their results from the 2020 Election are bogus.  They show this every day.  They were totally frightened from the first moment that the Arizona Senate mentioned that they wanted to perform an audit of the county’s 2020 Election results.  The Democrats, the media, and the biggest ‘Non-Profit’ Democrat entities continue to do all they can to stop the audit.

Now the MCBOS is going to Twitter and is having a press conference to besmirch the Senate’s audit with some more bogus messages and outright lies.  They sound pathetic and frightened.  If the MCBOS was confident in the results of the 2020 Election in their county they would be welcoming an audit.  Their actions show the opposite.

Let’s compare the MCBOS audits with the Senate’s audit and to get at the truth.

Audit Sponsors:

The Arizona Senate clearly just wants to get to the truth and the accurate vote count from the 2020 Election for President and Senator.  They have no agenda other than that.  They have listened to their constituents and are doing the audit in response.

The MCBOS recently released a series of tweets besmirching the current audit in progress.  They desperately want to shut it down.  They have attacked any and all efforts to audit their results from the 2020 election.  They sued the Senate to stop any audit and then hired their own auditors when they lost the case with the Senate.  The auditors they hired they claimed were certified but we found they were not.

WE CAUGHT THEM: Arizona’s Maricopa County Board of Supervisors Lied – EAC Updated Website after Gateway Pundit Report Discovered Their Auditors Were Uncertified

Independence and Objectivity of Auditors:

In such a big audit, these items are going to be challenged and they are.  The Senate hired a team, led by a Florida firm, Cyber Ninjas.  These auditors are constantly attacked by the left as biased based on some statements made by one of the members of the team.  In a typical audit, social media activity by the auditors is not under the microscope like it is in this audit.  Overall, we have seen no signs of a lack of independence and objectivity in the activities in the audit to date.

The MCBOS, as noted above, chose two audit firms, claiming they were certified, but at the time they were not.  Per a cursory review of the work of these teams, which is limited, we have come across no audits where these auditors ever claimed differences between the results of the election.   These firms are also highly involved in certifying the machines used in audits.  We also did not observe a lack of independence and objectivity by these auditors but they were onsight for only a short period of time.


The Senate audits include audits of 8 truckloads of voting machines, estimated at up to 120 voting machines.  It also includes an entire forensic review and recount of every ballot counted in the election (2.1 million ballots).  The auditors have requested routers and system passwords which the MCBOS is refusing to provide.

The MCBOS also deleted an entire database before handing the machines to be audited to the Senate auditors:

BREAKING: Maricopa County Elections Officials DELETED ENTIRE DATABASE DIRECTORY from Voting Machines – Including “All Election Information” from Main Database — With Copy of Senate Letter

Each of the firms used by the MCBOS audited a few voting machines.  It’s unclear how many machines were tested, but appears to be only a couple per audit team.  The auditors’ results are available on the County’s website.  Quickly you can see that not much work was done.  These audits did not touch the ballots.  They weren’t recounted, forensically reviewed, nothing.  These were only reviews of a few machines.  From this work, the auditors determined the machines were good to go and to be used in an election.  To no one’s surprise, they found no issues.


The Senate’s goal is to forensically audit all the ballots for validity by checking folds, paper types, ink, the format of ballots, and more.  The truckloads of voting machines are being audited by a separate team of auditors than those auditing the ballots.  This audit has been in progress for nearly a month and has been put on hold as the facility the audit is being held in is used for other activities.  The audit team has indicated it is through about 25% of the ballots to date and no results have been supplied from their work.

The MCBOS audits each took one week on-site.  The limited scope provided for such a short period of time for the audit.


The Senate has allowed for around $150,000 for the audit.  There apparently are others who are funding the work of the auditors but their names have been kept a secret.  This is one of the MCBOS’s bones of contention.

The MCBOS wasted around $100,000 on their audits.

Wait Till the Citizens of Maricopa County Realize Their Board of Supervisors Wasted $100K on Bogus Audits to Help Cover Up the Real Results in the County

Quality of Audit:

The Senate audit is really incredible.  It is taking time but the scope warrants it.  We already know that there are issues with the routers which indicates the County doesn’t want the auditors to know where data went during the election time frame.  There are issues with passwords, indicating that Dominion ran the audit and not those legally required to do so. No doubt there is more in the ballot review.

The MCBOS audits were weak.  They were limited in scope.  They didn’t even look at ballots.  They basically said – these few machines are fine so the audit must be fine.

Transparency and security:

The Senate’s audit is best in class in regards to transparency and security.  At least 9 cameras are on the audit floor 24 hours a day.  (This has never been done before in any audit I am aware of.  I’ve done hundreds of audits around the world and never was videotaped while performing my work.)

The MCBOS audits lacked security controls.  They left the doors to the facility open.  There was only one camera filming the work which sometimes went down.  They also appeared to be rude in at least one account.

Not Only Were Election Auditors in Maricopa County Profane, Sending Out “F##k You” Messages to Observers – But Their Work Was Shoddy and Unprofessional

Overall there is no comparison between audits. 

The Senate’s audit is comprehensive and bold.  They will determine the accurate results of the 2020 Election in the County and will likely identify any issues with voting hardware and software as well. 

The MCBOS audits were a waste of money and were put in place to obtain a clean bill of health based on a very limited audit approach.

Disgusting MSNBC: Pro-Life Conservatives ‘Won’t Be Happy’ Until Rape Victims Are in Jail

MSNBC was one step away from saying we were literally in “The Handmaid’s Tale”, Monday afternoon. Host Nicolle Wallace and her frenzied feminist panel spent the first twenty minutes of her show hysterically panicking over news that the Supreme Court would be eventually ruling on a Mississippi abortion law that passed in 2018. 
The state law bans abortions after 15 weeks where the mother or baby was not in danger. Apparently, that is radical and extreme to the majority of Americans, at least according to MSNBC’s Wallace. She declared, “Just the decision to take up this case really strikes fear in the hearts of everyone who cares about this issue, which if you look at polls is 65% of Americans that support reproductive freedoms.”
Former Democrat Senator and MSNBC analyst Claire McCaskill then lectured women younger than her who don’t remember life before Roe while she savagely smeared pro-life advocates as callous to rape victims:
And you know I got to tell you Nicolle, I don’t think younger voters remember what it was like before Roe V. Wade.  I don’t think they realize these folks will not be happy until a rape victim is put in prison for taking the morning-after pill. That’s the road they are going down. That’s the road they’ve been trying do go down for a long time even though they are really pushing provisions that are widely rejected by the vast majority of Americans. 
An enthralled Wallace wanted to hear more about the terrifying future Republicans supposedly wanted for women. She wondered to McCaskill if “just the decision to take up this case is ominous enough?”
McCaskill predicted that if the court upheld the law, every state that voted for Donald Trump would “immediately” make abortion virtually illegal:
“They will immediately begin shutting down the ability of women to have the freedom to choose to terminate a pregnancy with all kinds of limitations and then eventually they’ll keep pushing the cases up until there are none left except the few states that might make it legal,” she feared.
Wallace couldn’t get enough of the panic porn. "It’s such a terrifying thought," she gushed. McCaskill warned that it would be a "wake up call" to young women who were fortunate enough to never have had experienced the fear of an unplanned pregnancy, and she hoped they would drive the upcoming election: 
"This will all be a wake-up call. This will be a shock to their systems. And we have more young people voting this last time. If the court does this, I predict that young women will be a driving force in the midterm elections. Especially if those who support reproductive freedoms are doing their job," she proclaimed.
After moaning again about how "chilling" this news was, Wallace invited McCaskill to whine with her over Fox News Channel host Tucker Carlson using the pro-abortion rhetoric of “my body, my choice” when it came to taking the COVID-19 vaccine. Wallace fumed at the Republican “hypocrisy” moving to the “front burner of the culture wars.” 
McCaskill AGAIN smeared pro-life conservatives as heartless to teenage sexual assault victims:
People don’t understand what happens with incest. The young girls who are the victims of incest don’t tell people. It is the most torturous, painful secret that they keep. And when those young girls get pregnant from a stepfather or a father or an uncle, they don’t immediately speak up or understand they’re pregnant. So what Mississippi is saying, if you come forward after 15 weeks you must have your father’s baby, you must have your uncle’s baby but on the other side of their mouth saying no problem if you don’t want to take a vaccine. These guys have a lot of nerve. 
As the segment wrapped up, Wallace hyped the “horrifying” reality before us that Donald Trump set in place with his picks for the Supreme Court. She asked SCOTUS blog writer and attorney Katie Barlow what “65% of Americans who support reproductive freedoms” could cling to as their “best-case scenario”?
Barlow affirmed her fears that it was unlikely the court would rule against the law but she hoped it would be a "very narrow ruling," at least.

Deadline: White House
NICOLLE WALLACE: Claire McCaskill, you and I co sort of talked the way through the confirmation of at least the last two Trump appointees. This was Trump’s goal. Just the decision to take up this case really strikes fear in the hearts of everyone that cares about this issue which if you look at polls is 65% of Americans that support reproductive freedoms.
CLAIRE MCCASKILL: This may be the situation that is often described as the dog catching the bus and what happens in America in terms of the political climate if in fact this court overturns decades of precedent and fails to protect women’s reproductive freedoms via this Mississippi case. And you know I got to tell you Nicolle, I don’t think younger voters remember what it was like before Roe V. Wade.  I don’t think they realize these folks will not be happy until a rape victim is put in prison for taking the morning-after pill. That’s the road they are going down. That’s the road they’ve been trying do go down for a long time even though they are really pushing provisions that are widely rejected by the vast majority of Americans. 
WALLACE: Claire, what do you make of the early reaction, just the decision to take up this case is ominous enough? 
MCCASKILL: Yeah. I think what will happen if this case is upheld and if you look at the tea leaves you have to believe it’s going to be upheld. Then look at all of the Republican dominated legislatures in all of the states that’s voted for Donald Trump. They will immediately begin shutting down the ability of women to have the freedom to choose to terminate a pregnancy with all kinds of limitations and then eventually they’ll keep pushing the cases up until there are none left except the few states that might make it legal. That’s the way it was before Roe V. Wade was passed by the court, what? 40, 50 years ago. 
WALLACE:  It’s such a terrifying thought and I think you are right on the generational point. I want to give you a chance to say more about what’s at stake. 
MCCASKILL: I don’t — for young women who went to planned parenthood in college and got birth control, for young woment have never known the fear of an unwanted pregnancy, have never known what that represents in their lives if there is not a safe and legal place to terminate a pregnancy, this will all be a wakeup call. This will be a shock to their systems. And we have more young people voting this last time. If the court does this, I predict that young women will be a driving force in the midterm elections. Especially if those who support reproductive freedoms are doing their job. 
WALLACE: You know Erin It was such a chilling — I will never forget covering the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and then the confirmation of Justice Amy Coney Barrett because everyone talked about all that was at stake and this came up. I wonder first your thoughts about the decision and same question to you about what’s at stake. 
WALLACE: Katie, let me just follow up on that, I mean I—guess the point being— it is indicative of how far to the right. I mean Roberts doesn’t even matter! So Roberts sides again with the liberal justices–It doesn’t matter how he rules — say he goes with them again. If you’re betting on Brett Kavanaugh as your swing vote that might actually be why people are so anxious.
