Planned Parenthood Applied For and Got $80 Million in Loans From the Coronavirus Stimulus That They Weren’t Eligible For, Feds Want it Back

May 20, 2020

According to a FoxNews.com Exclusive Report,

Thirty-seven Planned Parenthood affiliates applied for and received a total of $80 million in loans from the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight” has learned — and now the federal government wants the money back, saying the affiliates should have known they weren’t eligible for the coronavirus stimulus payouts.

After this report was published, a slew of top Republicans — including Sens. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., Rick Scott, R-Fla., James Lankford, R-Oklahoma, and Josh Hawley, R-Mo. — called for an immediate investigation, with some warning that criminal prosecution may be appropriate.

The Small Business Administration (SBA) is reaching out to each involved Planned Parenthood affiliate explaining that affiliates of larger organizations with more than 500 employees aren’t eligible for PPP distributions, Fox News is told. The Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PFFA) alone has had more than 600 employees.

A Planned Parenthood affiliate in Metropolitan Washington (PPMW), for example, will receive a letter stating that although self-certified that it was eligible for a $1,328,000 PPP loan in accordance with the SBA’s affiliation rules, it will need to return the money.

PPMW’s request for money from the Trump administration came just months after the affiliate’s president and CEO, Laura Meyers, promised to turn down federal funds.

“Planned Parenthood is never going to allow the Trump-Pence administration to bully us into withholding critical health information from our patients,” Meyers said last August, after the White House banned Planned Parenthood clinics from making abortion referrals if they wanted to continue receiving federal funds. At the time, Planned Parenthood vowed to give up federal funds entirely, rather than comply with the order.

The SBA warned more “severe penalties” were possible, beyond mandatory repayment. In particular, incorrect or false eligibility certifications by PPP recipients could result in criminal or civil sanctions if the SBA determined borrowers made knowingly false statements, the SBA letter read.

The letter explained that PPFA affiliates clearly were covered by the PPP affiliate rules. “PPFA’s bylaws, a version of which is publicly available, reveal that becoming a PPFA affiliate requires a certification by the PPFA board,” the document continued. “Once certified, “[e]ach Affiliate shall be governed by written bylaws, which conform to PPFA policies.”

The largest single government loan was a $7.5 million allotment to the Planned Parenthood of Orange and San Bernardino Counties in California. One Planned Parenthood affiliate received a loan but declined it.

Rubio, who has served as chairman of the Senate Committee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship, said Planned Parenthood’s violation of PPP rules was “clear.”

“There is no ambiguity in the legislation that passed or public record around its passage that organizations such as Planned Parenthood, whose parent organization has close to half a billion dollars in assets, is not eligible for the Paycheck Protection Program,” Rubio said. “Those funds must be returned immediately. Furthermore, the SBA should open an investigation into how these loans were made in clear violation of the applicable affiliation rules and if Planned Parenthood, the banks, or staff at the SBA knowingly violated the law, all appropriate legal options should be pursued.”

“Across the country, Planned Parenthood refused to cease its abortion operation in wake of the pandemic, hoarding personal protective equipment and putting its staff and women at risk,” a spokesperson for the SBA List told Fox News.

“It is rich that they, in turn, feel entitled to taxpayer dollars meant to help businesses in need,” the spokesperson continued. “After decades of feeding at the taxpayer’s trough while running the nation’s largest abortion operation, they have over a billion dollars in net assets. They should return this funding immediately. We thank President Trump for his strong commitment to stop taxpayer funding of abortion and abortionists like Planned Parenthood.”

This past January, Planned Parenthood reported a record-high number of abortions and government funding. Planned Parenthood affiliates claimed to have performed 345,672 abortions from Oct. 1, 2017 to Sept. 30, 2018.

At the same time, Planned Parenthood claimed abortion constituted just a small percentage – 4 percent in 2018-2019 – of its services, and that federal funds didn’t go directly to abortions.

Some 98 percent of PPP loans have been less than $1 million; the program has provided an average loan of $118,000. Canceled or returned funds can be used during future PPP rounds.

Republicans have strongly resisted reported efforts from some Democrats to push abortion-related spending amid the pandemic. In March, The Daily Caller reported House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., tried to include federal funding for abortion in the coronavirus stimulus bill.

Multiple senior White House officials told the oulet that speaking to Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin, Pelosi sought a provision for up to $1 billion to “reimburse laboratory claims.”

That might set a precedent for health-related spending without the protections of the Hyde Amendment, a compromise restricting federal funds for abortion in most cases.

“A new mandatory funding stream that does not have Hyde protections would be unprecedented,” a White House official said. “Under the guise of protecting people, Speaker Pelosi is working to make sure taxpayer dollars are spent covering abortion — which is not only backwards, but goes against historical norms.”

No kidding.

But, it really does not surprise me.

Have you ever tried to have a discussion with an ardent pro-abortion supporter, either on Facebook or face-to-face? You won’t hear these “Champions of Tolerance” call those innocent lives, babies, human beings, a life, a soul, a gift from God, or anything remotely resembling something that they should feel remorse about killing.

Heck, Pro-Abortionists are opposed to the taking of sonograms of the woman’s womb, before she has an abortion. They’re afraid that the “seed-carrier” will realize that IS a HUMAN BEING inside her, and will decide not to kill that baby.

The push by the Far Left Democratic Party over the last several decades to dehumanize the human fetus (Latin for BABY) has been taken to its barbaric and inevitable limit over the past couple of years with the advocacy of abortion up to birth by Democrat Politicians such as New York’s Governor Mario Cuomo, and Virginia’s Governor Ralph Northam, a Pediatric Neurologist.

To deny the humanity of the life growing in a woman’s womb is a horrifyingly callous way of denying responsibility for that life.

Who defends the “right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness” for those who cannot yet speak for themselves?

They have no voice in the decision to end their lives….lives which they have not yet had a chance to live.

Or, as President Ronald Reagan observed,

“I have noticed that everyone who is for abortion has already been born.”

The mercenary callousness of Planned Parenthood is no surprise, either.

Back in 2017, The Washington Times posted an article in which they reported that

Planned Parenthood executives joked about decapitated fetuses, admitted to altering abortion procedures to preserve fetal organs and said clinics have a financial incentive to sell human tissue in a new undercover video released Thursday.

The three-minute video was recorded at an annual National Abortion Federation meeting by pro-life investigators with the Center for Medical Progress. The advocacy group said it’s just a preview of never-before-seen content that has been sealed for almost two years due to legal fights.

In the video, Deborah Nucatola, senior director of medical services at the Planned Parenthood Federation of America, admits to altering abortion procedures to preserve fetal organs.

“You know, sometimes she’ll tell me she wants brain, and we’ll, you know, leave the calvarium till last, and then try to basically take it or, actually, you know, catch everything, and even keep it separate from the rest of the tissue so it doesn’t get lost,” Ms. Nucatola says.

And, these are the monsters who Nancy Pelosi wanted to “take care of” in the first Coronavirus Relief Bill.

If you believe that Pelosi and her fellow Capitol Hill Democrats care about average Americans, you are sadly mistaken.

They don’t even care about us when we’re still in the womb.

House Dems Tell Supreme Court That They are in the Middle of an “Ongoing Presidential Investigation”, Must Have Grand Jury Material From “Russia Probe”

May 19, 2020

untitled (317)

“The Committee’s impeachment investigation related to obstruction of justice pertaining to the Russia investigation is ongoing” Douglas Letter, House of Representatives General Counsel, Supreme Court Filing

FoxNews.com reports that

House Democrats told the Supreme Court on Monday that they are again in the midst of an “ongoing presidential impeachment investigation” as part of their “weighty constitutional responsibility” – and, the Democrats argued, redacted grand-jury material from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s now-completed Russia probe must be turned over as a result.

Top Democrats have repeatedly suggested since President Trump was acquitted on two articles of impeachment in February that they might initiate new impeachment proceedings. In their brief with the Supreme Court, which seeks testimony, exhibits and transcripts, the Democrats promised that leaks won’t be a problem, owing to their “special protocols” that will ensure “secrecy.”

“The [House Judiciary] Committee’s investigation did not cease with the conclusion of the impeachment trial,” the Democrats told the nine justices on Monday. “If this material reveals new evidence supporting the conclusion that President Trump committed impeachable offenses that are not covered by the articles adopted by the House, the committee will proceed accordingly — including, if necessary, by considering whether to recommend new articles of impeachment.”

Specifically, the Democrats said they were looking into “the possible exercise of improper political influence over recent decisions made in the Roger Stone and Michael Flynn prosecutions, both of which were initiated by the special counsel.”

In Stone’s case, the DOJ reversed a sentencing recommendation to Judge Amy Berman Jackson by former Mueller prosecutors that Stone should receive nine years in prison for obstructing Congress and related charges, saying it was obviously too harsh; indeed, Jackson later sentenced Stone to just three years in prison.

And, the DOJ has moved to dismiss Flynn’s case entirely, citing a mountain of exculpatory material that has surfaced since his guilty plea on one count of false statements to FBI agents, even after prosecutors had assured the court they had turned over all potentially relevant documents. Neither Flynn nor Stone were accused of conspiring with Russians, despite months of unfounded speculation. (“Flynn to testify that Trump directed him to make contact with Russians: Report,” read a false 2017 CNBC headline. ABC News’ Brian Ross was suspended for the report’s inaccurate claim that then-candidate Trump had told Flynn to reach out to Moscow, which the network admitted was a “serious error.”)

Earlier this month, the DOJ filed an emergency 3 with the Supreme Court to temporarily block an order by theD.C. Circuit Court of Appeals, which held by a 2-1 vote that the government needed to turn over the grand-jury materials. The DOJ has argued that Federal Rule of Criminal Procedure 6(e) protects the secrecy of grand-jury materials and that the exception allowing the disclosure “preliminarily to or in connection with a judicial proceeding” didn’t apply, especially given Trump’s acquittal by the Senate in an impeachment trial earlier this year.

But, Democrats have argued that preliminary impeachment hearings in the House constitute a pending judicial proceeding. They emphasized in their filing with the Supreme Court on Monday that the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals explicitly agreed with them on that point.

“[B]ecause that exception encompasses impeachment proceedings and the committee has established a ‘particularized need’ for the grand jury materials, the order of the district court is affirmed,” Judge Judith Rogers wrote in the D.C. appellate court’s decision, siding with the House Democrats.

To establish a “particularized need” under existing case law, the Democrats noted, parties seeking grand-jury material under Rule 6(e) must show (1) “that the material they seek is needed to avoid a possible injustice in another judicial proceeding,” (2) “that the need for disclosure is greater than the need for continued secrecy,” and (3) “that their request is structured to cover only material so needed.”

The lower court in the case had also held that precedent supported the idea that an impeachment trial is akin to a judicial proceeding, citing a case that allowed the disclosure of grand jury material for the impeachment investigation of President Richard Nixon.

The Circuit Court also agreed that the lower court properly used its discretion in determining that the possibility of new articles of impeachment stemming from the grand jury materials satisfied the requirement for a “particularized need.”

The DOJ, however, has countered that having a court evaluate the House’s needs related to impeachment would be “in considerable tension with the House’s ‘sole Power of Impeachment’ and the Senate’s ‘sole Power to try all Impeachments,'” as laid out in the Constitution.

The Justice Department has also emphasized the need for a pause in the case. “Absent a stay of the court’s mandate, the government will have to disclose those materials on May 11, 2020, which would irrevocably lift their secrecy and possible frustrate the government’s ability to seek further review,” the DOJ wrote in their filing, explaining the necessity for the Supreme Court to step in.

But, the Democrats maintained, any delay would serve no legitimate purpose for the DOJ, and only continue to frustrate their Article I impeachment power.

…Trump has noted that no Russian collusion with his campaign was proven, and Republicans and even left-of-center commentators argued that Russian disinformation was irrelevant, given that social media and other platforms are already rife with inaccuracies.

“Before a pandemic, there was a time when we were relentlessly told to fear Russian social media accounts,” mused journalist Aaron Mate on Monday. “Their juvenile memes not only elected Trump, but also ‘sowed chaos.’ When Mueller indicted 13 Russians over it, he was hailed as a hero. Well, DOJ just dropped the case.”

What we have here, boys and girls, is the Democratic Party being so consumed by their hatred for a sitting President and those who elected him, that they are devoting their energy to a strategy to remove him from office which has failed before instead of reopening America so that its citizens may return to their jobs and provide for their families.

In a meeting of the House Judiciary Committee last December, Rep. Nadler said,

“We cannot rely on an election to solve our problems, when the president threatens the very integrity of that election.”

Nadler, Schiff, Pelosi, and the rest of the House Democrats are aware that average Americans have more important issues to deal with that their frivolous attempts at removing President Donald J. Trump from the Oval Office.

They don’t care.

Americans have seen this load of fertilizer before.

During the closing arguments of the First Impeachment Hearings, the citizens of the United States of America witnessed a bunch of lies which they had heard and seen before during the “Impeachment Inquiry” held by the House Democrats.

The House Managers, chosen by Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, repeated these lies ad infinitum in the hopes that their verbal torture would force “Moderate” Republican Senators to turn against President Donald J. Trump and to side with them and their Democrat colleagues in the Senate, instead of doing the right thing and standing in unity with their fellow Republicans and vote for dismissal of the Sham Impeachment or to acquit the President .

During their closing arguments, not only did the Democrat House Managers lie their hindquarters off, they instructed and insulted Republican Senators, telling them that they would not be doing “right” if they did not vote to impeach Trump.

Quite frankly, in this Deplorable’s eyes, Schiff, Nadler, Pelosi, Waters, Jeffries, and the rest of the House Democrats accomplished nothing by their behavior before, during, and after their Sham Impeachment except to establish themselves in the eyes of average Americans between the coasts as the “Poster Children” for the 3-year long National Temper Tantrum which began the night of November 8, 2016 when Political Outsider Donald J. Trump defeated the “Chosen One” Hillary Clinton to become the 45th President of the United States of America.

If the Democrat Elite believe that they would accomplish anything by attempting another Sham Impeachment of President Trump, they have not been paying attention.

Average Americans were not paying any attention to them at all the first time.

We watched clips of their whining on Fox News before and after WORK.

And, those Americans who began watching them, soon changed channels, as the ratings showed at the time.

From the Democratic Elite to be allowing the House Democrats to be attempting another Sham Impeachment, tells me that they know that Sleepy Joe Biden does not have a chance of being elected President this November.

I wish those affected by Trump Derangement Syndrome, like the House Democrats would work as hard to help average Americans as they do trying to overturn their 2016 President Election Votes.

House Passes $3 Trillion Coronavirus Relief Bill So Full of Pork They Should Have Named It “Hogzilla”

May 16, 2020

F6ryN9QE

FoxNews.com reports that

The House of Representatives on Friday evening passed a $3 trillion coronavirus relief bill, the most expensive legislation approved in history, that Democrats hailed as the unprecedented response needed to deal with the unprecedented pandemic and economic fallout.

The record-breaking bill narrowly passed by a 208-199 vote. Fourteen Democrats defied their party and voted “no,” while one Republican, Rep. Pete King of New York, broke with the GOP and voted “yes.”

“If you don’t understand the suffering, you haven’t been paying attention,” said Rep. Nita Lowey, D-N.Y., the chairwoman of the House Appropriations Committee.

“The time for action is now. The American people have unprecedented needs and the federal government must step up to the plate [and] provide the necessary assistance to meet those needs,” she said.

Unlike the first four coronavirus bills that passed with overwhelming bipartisan support, this 1,815-page package was drafted by Democrats alone and earned a veto threat from the White House and condemnation from the GOP as a “liberal wish list” that’s dead on arrival in the Senate.

Even House Speaker Nancy Pelosi couldn’t get all her members on board. The most liberal members of the party panned the legislation as not going big enough, while moderate members in swing districts said they couldn’t support vote a bill that was too partisan and costly.

“At a time when our country is in real trouble, we should not be spending precious time on one-sided solutions that aren’t going anywhere,” said Rep. Joe Cunningham, D-S.C.

…Dubbed the HEROES Act, the legislation includes $915 billion in state and local aid that could prevent layoffs of public workers, like first responders and teachers; a new $200 billion “heroes” fund for hazard pay for essential workers; $100 billion for K-12 and higher education and $75 billion for coronavirus testing.

The legislation aims to get more money into the pockets of Americans hard-hit by widespread business closures. Eligible individuals would receive $1,200 checks for each person in their household, up to $6,000.

The bill extends add-on unemployment benefits of $600 payments, in addition to state benefits, through January 2021, creates a special enrollment period for the Affordable Care Act exchanges for the uninsured and provides $175 billion for families to pay their mortgages and rent. The legislation includes student loan forgiveness, an employee retention tax credit and increases maximum SNAP benefits, which are currently $768 a month, by 15 percent.

But tucked into the legislation are provisions that rankled the Republicans including expanding $1,200 checks to certain undocumented immigrants, restoring the full State and Local Tax Deduction (SALT) that helps individuals in high-taxed blue states, a $25 billion rescue for the U.S. Postal Service, allowing legal marijuana businesses to access banking services and early voting and vote-by-mail provisions.

“So much of what’s in this bill simply has nothing at all to do with the current crisis,” said Rep. Tom Cole, R-Okla. “It’s more like a liberal Christmas … wish list. It would make more sense … to just send it straight to Santa Claus than to send it to the United States Senate. It would have a better chance of becoming law that way.”

Acknowledging this bill won’t get passed in the GOP-led Senate, Democrats framed the HEROS Act as their opening offer for negotiations. Democrat leadership said bipartisan legislation wasn’t an option because Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell wanted to put the brakes on any new relief bill and suggested that states go bankrupt.

Pelosi, D-Calif., hit back on critics who say now’s the time to “take a pause” on more spending and that the bill is bloated with goodies.

“This is not a Christmas tree, there’s nothing joyful about this,” Pelosi said. “This is a very strategically planned piece of legislation.”

Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., chided members who pay lip service to first responders and heroes but don’t back it up with money. “Put up or shut up,” Waters told her colleagues. “Now is the time to do it.”

There has always, at least as long as I can remember, been give and take between the Republican and Democratic Parties in the creation of a bill which they wish to be made into a law.

However, for the last few decades, the Democrats and Republicans, to a certain extent, have used the passage of bills into law as a means of paying back their political contributors and their favorite lobbyists, who treat the Capitol Hill Politicians “very well”.

That being said, the 3 trillion dollar coronavirus relief bill which Pelosi and her fellow Democrats have passed not only deserves to die in the Senate, Sen. McConnell needs to set it on fire and toss it into the nearest waste basket.

Average Americans want to go back to work…as least most of them do.

The problem is, small businesses, such as restaurants, may not reopen.

If Congress is going to spend more of our money, at least give it to the Americans who need it…the small business owners.

Another thing, if someone who is receiving unemployment is called by their employer and offered their job back, there must be incentives for them to leave unemployment behind such as stopping their unemployment if they do not accept their old position back at full salary.

All of the Democrats’ Pet Pork Projects which Pelosi and Waters so conveniently ignored in their defense of their “Hogzillia” of a bill have nothing whatsoever with assisting in reopening America., with good reason.

The Democrats do not want America to reopen.

They want to recreate The Great Society.

Only this time, it’s purpose is to damage a sitting President and to radically change a Constitutional Republic into a Democratic Socialist country.

Which is quite the opposite of “raising people up”.

Come to think of it, that is what happened when they passed into law the first “Great Society”, also.

Pelosi Includes Billions of Dollars for Illegals in New Stimulus Bill, Would Give Them $1,200 Each Like American Citizens

May 13, 2020

Pelosi

Nancy Pelosi making it rain for illegals. This scam is easier than standing at the polling places with a fistful of fifties, I guess…

– James Woods, Twitter

DailyCaller.com reports that

Speaker Nancy Pelosi introduced her party’s coronavirus relief package, which includes billions of dollars in carve-outs for eligible illegal aliens, grants to sanctuary cities and other protections for the undocumented community.

House Democrats released the HEROES Act on Tuesday, a bill that provides $3 trillion in stimulus funds to state and local governments, along with other industries affected by the coronavirus pandemic. The legislation — which was not negotiated with the GOP or the Trump administration — includes $500 billion for state governments and $375 billion for local governments.

A dive through the 1,815-page bill also showed that it includes billions in payments to certain individuals living in the United States unlawfully.

Under a provision in the HEROES Act, recipients can receive stimulus money if they file taxes with a Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN), allowing many illegal aliens to be eligible for direct funds. A TIN is an identifying number used for taxpayer purposes instead of a Social Security number.

The previous coronavirus relief package, the CARES Act, only allowed those who filed with a Social Security number to be eligible for stimulus money, leaving out undocumented aliens. The current bill, if passed, would also retroactively provide those using Taxpayer Identification Numbers to obtain funds from the CARES Act, according to the Federation for American Immigration Reform.

The House Speaker said in late April that Democratic leaders were in discussions to include a provision for Taxpayer Identification Numbers in the next coronavirus relief package.

The bill “pertains to the TIN provision giving illegal aliens access to any new stimulus payments and retroactively providing them with payments from the CARES Act,” Preston Huennekens, a government relations associate with FAIR, told the Daily Caller News Foundation on Tuesday.

“FAIR estimates there are 14.3 million illegal aliens, meaning that in the last stimulus alone illegal aliens could have received over $17 billion in direct payments from the Federal government,” Huennekens continued.

He added: “This bill provides other relief to illegal aliens outside of the recovery rebates. Take for instance the eviction protection for renters. The way the bill is written, illegal aliens also benefit from that protection because it is so broadly written.”

The legislation includes a multitude of other benefits for illegal aliens and the institutions that allow them to remain in the United States.

The HEROES Act, for example, calls on the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to release all illegal aliens under Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detention who do not pose a “threat to public safety or national security.” The bill also provides $300 million in federal grants to law enforcement agencies, and specifically forbids the Trump administration from withholding these funds from agencies that refuse to cooperate with ICE, also known as “sanctuary cities.”

Numbers USA, a nonprofit that advocates for less immigration into the United States, criticized the bill’s provisions regarding foreign workers.

“House Democrats prioritizing foreign workers, legal and illegal, over unemployed and underemployed Americans in the middle of a crisis is shameful,” said Numbers USA president Roy Beck. (RELATED: Democrats Across The Country Are Fighting To Give Coronavirus Aid To Illegal Aliens)

Beck also derided a provision in the bill that would “expedite the permanent importation of foreign health care professionals, apparently to take the jobs of the tens of thousands of American health care professionals who have been laid off or furloughed during the pandemic.”

The HEROES Act, if it passes the House, is not expected to make it past the Republican-controlled Senate. House GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy called the bill a “liberal wishlist that has no chance of becoming law” in a statement Tuesday.

Apparently, Nancy Pelosi and the rest of the House Democrats are under the same false impression that they were during their Sham Impeachment of President Trump.

That being that average Americans believe the same things that they do.

You would have thought that they would have learned their lesson on the night of November 8, 2016.

Unfortunately for them (and us), they have been living in denial ever since.

You may have seen this already. It explains illegal immigration as succinctly as anything I’ve come across:

Let’s pretend I broke into your house.  When you discover me there, you insist I leave.  But I say, “I’ve made all the beds, washed the dishes, did the laundry, and cleaned the floors; I’ve done all the work you don’t like to do. I’m hardworking and honest (except for breaking into your house). Not only must you let me stay, you must also add me to your insurance plan, educate my kids, and provide these benefits to my husband, too (he will do your yard work, he’s honest and hardworking too–except for that breaking in part). If you try to force me out, I will call my friends who will picket your house and proclaim my right to be there! It’s only fair, because you have a nicer house than I do, and I’m trying to better myself. I’m hardworking and honest…except for, well, you know. I will live in your house, contributing only a fraction of the cost of my keep, and there is nothing you can do about it without being accused of selfishness and prejudice.

Oh yeah, I want you to learn my language so you can communicate with me.

Good plan..don’t you think?

Actually, no.

Average Americans have already made it clear that they do not want those who have entered our Sovereign Nation illegally to receive the same benefits as American citizens.

What makes the current influx of illegal immigrants exempt from the rules and regulations that every other generation of immigrants to this country had to abide by in order to become legal citizens of the greatest nation in the world? By being here illegally, they are not entitled to the same rights as natural-born or naturalized American citizens.

And, yet, even as I write this, they are in our hospitals, taking advantage of our charity and the finest health care system in the world, and driving our streets, with either forged drivers licenses or those obtained from states who have acquiesced and given them to these “undocumented workers”.

This is in no way a human rights issue.

Freedom is God-given, and with freedom comes responsibility. With citizenship comes responsibility, like paying taxes and making your own way.

Attempting to assign “Constitutional Rights” to those who are here illegally is a usurpation of power Democratic local and national Politicians.

I understand that people want a better life for themselves and their children.  We are all immigrants in this land, except for American Indians, and they got here by crossing the Bering Straight.  But there is a huge difference between immigrating here legally and sneaking in illegally, between assimilating into an existing culture, and insisting on replacing a country’s existing culture with that of the country you left.

I’m all for assisting anyone in becoming a legal citizen of the United States, if that is their wish.  But, it must be done the right way, and they must accept responsibility for their illegal entry, show a willingness to learn our language, and embrace our American way of life, including respecting the American Flag.

The Democrats want to give illegal immigrants the same rights and privileges as American citizens.

Their “breaking into our country should not be rewarded with American Taxpayer money in the form of $1,200 Stimulus Checks.

If they want to become Americans and enjoy our rights and privileges, they can get in line and do it legally.

“Schiff in Panic Mode”, House Russia Probe Transcripts Show NO Evidence of Trump Campaign Collusion…Can You Say “Sedition”?

May 7, 2020

OIP

 

FoxNews.com reports in an Exclusive that

Transcripts of House Intelligence Committee interviews that have been cleared for release show top law enforcement and intelligence officials affirming they had no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia during the 2016 election, senior administration and intelligence community officials told Fox News on Wednesday.

This would align with the results of former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation — which found no evidence of illegal or criminal coordination between President Trump, the Trump campaign and Russia in 2016 — but the numerous transcribed interviews could raise further questions about committee Chairman Adam Schiff’s past statements saying that there was “direct evidence” of collusion.

“Schiff is in panic mode,” a senior administration official told Fox News.

Earlier this week, House Republicans sought over 6,000 pages of transcripts pertaining to interviews conducted by the committee in 2017 and 2018, after the panel in September 2018 voted on a bipartisan basis to approve their public release.

A day later, acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell notified Schiff, D-Calif., that the redaction and declassification process was complete, and that the records were ready for release, putting the ball in Schiff’s court.

However, intelligence officials told Fox News on Wednesday that Schiff has had his subcommittee staff director reaching out to heads of intelligence community agencies asking how Grenell was involved and what role Grenell — a known Trump ally — may have played in the declassification and redaction process.

Fox News is told, however, that the declassification process was completed before Grenell took the helm as acting director this past February.

The process, according to an intelligence community official, took place under both former directors Dan Coates and Joseph Maguire, and was conducted by career intelligence officials. The official also told Fox News that the relevant heads of appropriate agencies were consulted on the declassifications and redactions of all 53 transcripts.

Grenell, in a letter to Schiff dated May 4, wrote that the review of 43 of the 53 transcripts “was completed in June 2019,” and that the “interagency review of the remaining ten transcripts has been completed.” Grenell added, “pursuant to your guidance, these transcripts have not been shared with the White House.”

The remaining 10 transcripts included interviews with President Trump’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., former adviser Steve Bannon, the president’s son-in-law and adviser Jared Kushner, Trump aide Hope Hicks and former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski.

Further, Grenell wrote Schiff that he was “willing” to release the transcripts directly from the Office of the Director of National Intelligence [ODNI] “as to ensure we comply with the unanimous and bipartisan vote to release the transcripts.” It’s unclear, at this point, when Grenell could release the transcripts.

A House Intelligence Committee spokesman told Fox News on Wednesday that the panel received Grenell’s letter on Tuesday.

“After more than a year of unnecessary delay, the ODNI has finally concluded its protracted classification review of the committee’s transcripts, and it also appears the White House has now abandoned its improper insistence on reviewing key transcripts, which the committee appropriately rejected,” the spokesman said.

“We are now reviewing the proposed redactions from ODNI based on classification, law enforcement sensitivity or items ODNI requests be for official use only,” the spokesman continued. “Given the overtly political role now played by the acting DNI, including the leak of his letter, this committee and the public can have little confidence that his determinations are made on the merits.”

The spokesman added: “This process had already taken far too long, most notably because the ODNI improperly held up the declassification review and release of several transcripts at the request of the White House.”

The spokesman also said that the committee’s review of ODNI’s “newly proposed redactions” would be “as expeditious as possible given the constraints of the pandemic.” He continued, “We look forward to releasing these transcripts, which relate to misconduct by the Trump campaign and the president himself.”

The 53 transcripts eligible for release, according to a source familiar with the transcripts, included interviews with Trump Jr., Bannon, Kushner, Hicks, Lewandowski, former Trump attorney Michael Cohen, Roger Stone, Brad Parscale, Michael Caputo and Rick Dearborn.

Also expected to be released, according to the source: transcripts for interviews with Obama officials such as former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper; former Attorney General Loretta Lynch; former Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power; former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe; former National Security Adviser Susan Rice; former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates; former Obama adviser Benjamin Rhodes; and former Obama counselor and Hillary Clinton Campaign Manager John Podesta.

Another source familiar with the transcripts told Fox News that the people interviewed by the House Intelligence Committee during its Russia probe were asked whether they had evidence that Trump, himself, or the Trump campaign conspired, colluded or coordinated with Russia during the 2016 election.

Two sources familiar with the transcripts told Fox News that not one of the 53 witnesses could provide evidence of collusion.

“The transcripts show a total lack of evidence, despite Schiff personally going out saying he had more than circumstantial evidence that there was collusion,” one source involved in House Russia investigations told Fox News.

Mueller, similarly, at the conclusion of his nearly two-year-long investigation, said he and his team found no evidence of criminal conspiracy or coordination between the Trump campaign and Russia, but did not reach a conclusion on obstruction of justice, which current Attorney General Bill Barr ultimately decided not to pursue.

While law enforcement officials have long maintained that there was clear intelligence Russia meddled in the 2016 presidential election, to date, there have been no charges concerning actual conspiracy against people associated with the Trump campaign, which was at the core of the Russia investigation.

The Russia probe never produced charges linking the Trump campaign and Russia as part of a criminal conspiracy.

I apologize for the length of the preceding article.

However, the information contained in it was just too important to leave any of it out.

Try to wrap your astute minds around this, gentle readers.

For most of the 45th President of the United States of America’s First Term, the Democratic Party spent the American Taxpayers’ hard-earned money in trying to impeach a sitting president over a fairy tale…a fabrication…A LIE!!!

Speaking of which, here’s a video that did not age well…

This new information confirms what Americans who have been paying attention have suspected all along.

Spygate, the Sham Impeachment…this whole Democrat-supported “Deep State Covert Operation” against President Trump resembles a spider’s web in its malevolent intricacy with its “alarm thread” leading directly back to Obama, Hillary and their co-conspirators like Schiff, Pelosi, and Badler among others in the Democrat Elite.

The incestuous nature of this covert operation resembles something out of a Tom Clancy Novel, only twice as large a conspiracy and three times as unbelievably dangerous.

This has been a well-planned “silent coup” designed to keep the Democratic Party in control of the Presidency and to further their goal of turning the United States of America into a Democratic Socialist Country, where the Politboro (Central Government) would prosper and us average Americans would spend our lives working for the glory of the State.

The election of a “Citizen Statesman” in the form of Donald J. Trump to the office of the Presidency ruined their plans.

That is why they are still attempting to overturn the results of a fair election with Pelosi’s and Schiff’s announcements of the formation of new House Committees to “investigate” Trump’s handling of the Chinese Coronavirus.

There is a word for what the Democrats have been doing: SEDITION.

Merriam-Webster.com defines “sedition” as

: incitement of resistance to or insurrection against lawful authority

That being said, the intentional interference in the passage of Presidential Authority from one political party to another as the result of a fairly held election as prescribed by our Constitution can not be considered to be anything less. According to Federal Law, the punishment for Seditious Conspiracy is detailed as follows..

If two or more persons in any State or Territory, or in any place subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, conspire to overthrow, put down, or to destroy by force the Government of the United States, or to levy war against them, or to oppose by force the authority thereof, or by force to prevent, hinder, or delay the execution of any law of the United States, or by force to seize, take, or possess any property of the United States contrary to the authority thereof, they shall each be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both.

The Trump Administration and its specified duties regarding the operation of the Government of the United States of America and the oversight of the safety and welfare of its citizens are under attack by members of a Former Presidential Administration who are still working within our own Department of Justice, taking orders from the hierarchy of the Democratic Party, including House Democrats like Rep. Adam Schiff.

No wonder he is nervous. He should be.

I believe that it is time that the laws against interference with our fairly elected government be enforced against those who would sabotage their own country for the sake of their own egos, to assuage their hurt and anger from a lost Presidential Election, and to preserve a legacy of failure which average Americans did not wish to continue.

I also believe that simply calling witnesses in front of Senate Committees, as has been suggested, will not accomplish anything.

I believe that it is time for U.S. Attorney John Durham and Attorney General William Barr to wrap up their investigations and present their respective reports of the whole attempted coup by the Democrats and their Deep State Operatives.

Then, a special Grand Jury should be convened to investigate and indict all of those former and present “public servants”, along with private citizens. who have engaged in this Seditious Conspiracy to subjugate the will of the American people and to overthrow our nation’s government from within.

Our Sovereign Nation must remain a Constitutional Republic in order to preserve our liberty.

There are Now 4 Sources Who Claim That Tara Reade Told Them About Biden’s Sexual Abuse…Will the Democrats Keep Ignoring This Scandal?

May 3, 2020

believe-biden-cdn-600

FoxNews.com reports that

At least two additional sources have claimed that former Senate staffer Tara Reade told them about aspects of her sexual harassment and assault claims against former Vice President Joe Biden, according to a new report.

The Associated Press revealed Saturday that its reporting uncovered two sources, who spoke on the condition of anonymity and who added to the already-mixed bag of individuals either corroborating or casting doubt on Reade’s claims.

One friend, who said they knew Reade in 1993, said she told them about the alleged assault when it happened, according to The AP. The second friend met Reade more than a decade after the alleged incident and confirmed that Reade had a conversation with them in 2007 or 2008 about allegedly experiencing sexual harassment from Biden while working in his Senate office.

Reade claimed she told three of Biden’s other staff members about harassment, although none of them reportedly said they remembered hearing those allegations from her. However, two other individuals, including a former neighbor of Reade’s, corroborated her sexual-assault allegation in a report released earlier this week.

In addition to the two sources reported Saturday by The Associated Press, that makes at least four people who have corroborated Reade’s allegations of either sexual assault or harassment against Biden.

Lynda LaCasse, one of Reade’s former neighbors, reportedly claimed that Reade shared details about the alleged assault in the mid-1990s. One of Reade’s former colleagues, Lorraine Sanchez, also told Business Insider that she remembered Reade complaining that her former boss harassed her.

Reade was one of eight women who came forward last year with allegations that Biden made them feel uncomfortable with inappropriate displays of affection. Biden acknowledged the complaints at the time and promised to be “more mindful about respecting personal space in the future.”

After reviewing interviews with Reade from 2019, The AP interviewed her again on Friday. The outlet claims that Reade says she filed a limited report with a congressional personnel office at the time that did not explicitly accuse Biden of sexual assault or harassment.

“I remember talking about him wanting me to serve drinks because he liked my legs and thought I was pretty and it made me uncomfortable,” Reade reportedly said. “I know that I was too scared to write about the sexual assault.”

Reade said she described her issues with Biden but “the main word I used — and I know I didn’t use sexual harassment — I used ‘uncomfortable.’ And I remember ‘retaliation.’”

Reade has denied this report, however, tweeting after the article’s publication that The AP’s report was “false.”

Reade later told Fox News that the “story itself is correct” but that the headline is “wrong.”

An Associated Press spokesperson told Fox News that it “stands by its story.”

“I do not know what is on the form until we see it. I filed a sexual harassment complaint and included retaliation,” Reade said.

Reade said she told The AP that she had filed an “intake form” regarding sexual harassment but did not disclose the alleged sexual assault in the complaint.

“I asked AP to retract [the] headline,” Reade told Fox News.

On Saturday evening, The AP changed its headline to “Reade: ‘I didn’t use sexual harassment’ in Biden complaint.”

“The headline of this story was changed for clarity and to incorporate a direct quote from Reade,” an editor’s note read at the bottom of the article.

However, Reade told Fox News that it’s “still incorrect” and “misleading.”

“They’re standing by the fact… that I said I don’t think I used the term ‘sexual harassment.’ We didn’t use it as much back in 1993, so I don’t know but that’s not to say that there isn’t a box that I didn’t check. Until we get that form, we don’t know,” Reade explained.

The existence of the Senate report has become a key element of the accusations against Biden, which he has flatly denied. Reade says she doesn’t have a copy of the report, and Biden said Friday that he is not aware that any complaint against him exists. He asked the Senate and the National Archives to search their records to try to locate a complaint from Reade.

So, there are four corroborating witness.

That is more than the Democrats had to support their erroneous claims against Former Judge, now Associate Supreme Court Justice, Bret Kavanaugh.

Why are the Democratic Elite, the Founders of the #MeToo Movement, so quiet about the allegations of sexual abuse against their presumptive Presidential Candidate?

What happened to “Every woman has a right to be heard”?

Does the presumption of guilt involving a claim of sexual abuse only hold true if the accused is a Conservative Republican?

Or, considering Harvey Weinstein and Matt Lauer, only if they are not the presumptive Democratic President Candidate?

Isn’t it funny how things have come back to bite all of the self-righteous Democrats in  Washington, New York, and Hollywood right in the gluteus maximus?

From the moment that the revelations about Hollywood Producer and star maker Harvey Weinstein to Charlie Rose to Matt Lauer to Tom Brokaw to Less Moonves and now, Sleepy Joe Biden, the warm feelings of schadenfreude have brought a smile on my face.

Since Donald J. Trump first announced his candidacy for the Presidency of the United States of America, the MSM and the Entertainment Industry have been accusing President Trump of being the biggest Lothario since Adam took a bite out of an apple offered to him by a naked woman.

Their desperation to bring down a sitting President has transcended the bounds of broadcast journalism to the point to where broadcast news outlets now resemble a revolutionary faction vying for power in Venezuela.

This desperation has led them to publish unsubstantiated lie after unsubstantiated lie in order to assuage their own still hurt feelings over their failure to aid lousy Democratic Candidate Hillary Clinton in her quest to become the 45th President of the United States of America.

The depth of their grief and the blind rage of their ensuing temper tantrum has, without a doubt, wiped out any vestiges of journalistic integrity that remained after decades of being the Propaganda Arm of the Democratic Party.

The funny thing is, that during all of those decades of Liberal Self-righteousness, CBS, NBC and other Liberal Show Biz Organizations were condoning sexual harassment and intolerance in their own corporate confines, just like the Democratic Elite who stride the Halls of Congress have excused Joe Biden’s sexual abuse of women as “just Joe being Joe”.

That’s right.

The same bunch of “morally superior” East and West Coast Liberals, who have been insulting and talking down to average Americans, from their positions of notoriety and power, simply because we believe in Traditional American Faith and Values and we would not swallow the Kool-aid they we offering during the 2016 Presidential Campaign and elected Donald J Trump as President, instead of the Queen of Mean, knew all along about the debauchery going on both behind closed doors and out in their open in their “places of business”.

It takes a special sort of hypocrite to sit in judgment as their have with all of their sexual harassment baggage neatly hidden away…or so they thought.

And now, it has all come back to bite them.

No wonder Nancy Pelosi refuses to allow Congress to reconvene.

As Popeye the Sailor used to say,

Tsk, tsk. How embarrasskin’.

“Marie Antoinette” Pelosi on Americans Pushing Back Against Overstepping Governors: “It’s Really Unfortunate”

April 19, 2020

nancy-pelosi-eating-ice-cream

FoxNews.com reports that

In her first interview on “Fox News Sunday” since 2017, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., spoke to anchor Chris Wallace about the coronavirus pandemic and its effect on Americans.

“People are taking to the streets, pushing back against some of the more stringent restrictions in some states,” Wallace said during the interview, which is set to air Sunday on Fox News Channel. “Can you understand why they’re doing that?”

Pelosi responded: “No, not, not really because what we have to do is, is, is shelter in place. That is really the answer.”

“Testing. Tracing. Treatment. Shelter in place. And I do think that it’s unfortunate,” Pelosi told Wallace. “But, you know, people will do what they do. But the fact is, we’re all impatient. We all want out. But what they’re doing is really unfortunate.”

Around 22 million people filed for unemployment over the past month. Only essential businesses have remained open and operational during the various stay-at-home orders across the country, leaving many without work.

Protests have taken place across the U.S. the past week and on Saturday, with residents in several states calling for an end to respective stay-at-home orders.

“Really Unfortunate”.

Translation: “How dare the peasants revolt! They are interrupting my vacation and my time with my precious ice cream!”

In case you didn’t hear, Pelosi has announced that she will not be returning to Capitol Hill until May 1st.

The word “delusional” does not even begin to cover San Fran Nan’s s Superiority Complex and her tone-deafness when it comes to average Americans’ wishes.

Nancy Pelosi’s station in life defies logic.

As she has shown us for decades and this week especially, she has to be the most tone deaf aristocrat since Marie Antoinette, who, when supposedly asked about the starving rabble in France, quipped,

Let them eat cake!

For her to completely brush off the plight of America’s small business owners and employees and the overstepping of authority by Democratic Governors which has brought about these protests, does not just “strain” credulity…it stomps that sucker flat.

There are two possibilities for Pelosi’s miss judgment of the American People:

  1. She has been so sheltered from us “rabble” during all of those years up on Capitol Hill, that she simply is clueless to the daily lives of average Americans and how we feel on the issues of the day. Or…
  2. She, like the future Presidential Candidate of her political Party, Joe Biden, is a victim of galloping dementia.

The brilliant Conservative Economist, Dr. Thomas Sowell once wrote,

…Perhaps the most remarkable feature of the world envisioned by today’s liberals is that it is a world where other people just passively accept whatever “change” liberals impose. In the world of Liberal Land, you can just take for granted all the benefits of the existing society, and then simply tack on your new, wonderful ideas that will make things better.

Pelosi and her compatriots are holding up giving additional money to America’s small businesses to leverage for add-ons to the bill which will strictly be political pork to the Democrats’ handpicked special interest groups and these add-ons will have nothing to do with the Chinese Coronavirus.

Like the money they added to the Stimulus Package for the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.

Liberal Ideas always cost taxpayer money…and they never make things better for the average American.

President Ronald Reagan once famously said,

It isn’t so much that liberals are ignorant. It’s just that they know so many things that aren’t so.

A quotation which also helps to explain Pelosi’s gross overestimation of the popularity of Liberal Ideals among Average Americans here in “Flyover Country”.

Pelosi’s continued denial of the fact that Americans rejected the political ideology of the Democrats and voted for change in the 2016 Presidential Election appears to be a part of an alternative reality that she and the rest of the “Special Snowflakes” who voted for Hillary Clinton and who compose the Far Left Base of the Modern Democratic Party, have transformed themselves into, considering all they have done during the past almost 3 and I/2 years since the election is to try to damage President Donald J. Trump and remove him from office by any means necessary.

The pain of their frustration is so immense over Clinton’s loss that they have created a reality in which Clinton actually beat Trump, one in which their embracing of the tenets of Marxism has won the hearts and minds of the American People.

Their undersized medulla oblongotas and oversized craniums will not allow them to accept the fact that Americans completely rejected their candidate, Hillary Clinton, and their Political Ideology on that fateful day in November.

So, they have retreated to that alternative reality, where they can feed and ride their unicorns somewhere over the rainbow and where they will find rest in their “Safe Space”.

And, if “Marie Antoinette” Pelosi and all of her cronies want to remain “sheltered in place”, let them stay there.

Average Americans want to get back to their jobs so that they can provide for their families.

Average Americans’ individual freedom means more to them than Pelosi’s room-sized freezer full of ice cream means to her.

The time to “Reopen America’s Economy Again” is at hand.

Her and her fellow members of the Democratic Elite can either help or shut up and get out of the way.

Trump Announces Plan to Reopen America, Pelosi Shows America Her Huge, Expensive Refrigerator Full of Gourmet Ice Cream

April 17, 2020

FoxNews.com reports that

President Trump announced on Thursday the White House’s plan for eventually rolling back social distancing measures and reopening the country’s economy in several phases — depending on location — amid the coronavirus pandemic.
The plan calls for three phases to reopening the country, based on the severity of the coronavirus outbreak in each individual state or region.

“We can begin the next front in our war, which we are calling ‘Opening Up America Again,'” Trump said during a press briefing at the White House. “To preserve the health of Americans, we must preserve the health of our economy.”

The plan, which Trump announced along with the formation of a bipartisan council of lawmakers from both chambers of Congress, outlines “recommendations” for governors to develop their own plans to reopen. It also includes a number of criteria that must be met in terms of numbers of infections and hospitalizations before they can open up.

White House guidelines for … by Fox News on Scribd
The “Opening Up America Again” plan was signed off on by the president’s medical advisers, Dr. Deborah Birx, Dr. Anthony Fauci and Dr. Robert Redfield, and will be a “data-driven” approach with governors taking the helm in deciding, down to a county-level, how they will reopen their states, the White House said.

“We are not opening all at once, but one careful step at a time,” Trump said, adding that the guidelines were “based on hard verifiable data.”

He added: “Some states will be able to open up sooner than others.”

“Phase One” is for areas of the country who solely satisfy the criteria laid out by the White House and calls for social distancing to remain in place, avoiding gathering of more than 10 people, and avoiding any unnecessary travel.

“Phase Two,” which is for regions that have met the criteria twice and have not seen “a rebound” in infections, still calls for residents to practice social distancing and try to avoid large gathering but opens up the possibility of resuming non-essential travel.

The third phase, which is for areas who have met the criteria three times and have no rebounds of the virus, is the most open and allows vulnerable parts of the population to go back in public, opening back up gyms and bars, resuming full-time staffing at worksites and letting people head back to large venues like restaurants, movie theaters, churches and sports venues – albeit at a reduced capacity.

“This is a gradual process,” Trump said. “Throughout the process, citizens will still be called on to use all the weapons in this war.”

Trump said he’s spoken to governors of some western states who said they already have met the criteria in “Phase One.” The president, however, did not specify which states were set to open back up.

“I heard from a number who said they are in very good shape,” he said. “They will be ready to open literally tomorrow.”

Democrats’ reactions were mixed. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said in a statement, “The White House’s vague and inconsistent document does nothing to make up for the president’s failure to listen to the scientists and produce and distribute national rapid testing.” Oregon Gov. Kate Brown said, “I am pleased to see the federal government’s guidance follows a data-driven, science-based approach, similar to Oregon’s framework.”

The White House guidelines come amid a tempestuous week in which protestors across the country descended on state capitals to express their anger over the effects the lockdown measures were having on the economy despite thousands of new cases of COVID-19 being reported every day.

While President Donald J. Trump is trying to get Americans working again, what are the Democrats doing?

Well, while the Democratic Governors in the North are attempting their impersonations of a Medieval King or Queen, Nancy Pelosi is doing her impression of Marie Antoinette.

Per House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, Pelosi is holding up replenishing the Small Business Administration’s now-empty fund for loans to small businesses facing closure because of the Chinese Conoravirus Pandemic.

We now ran out of money, $350 billion. More than 1.6 million small businesses out of 5,000 banks got this loan. But as of today, we ran out of money and now we are in jeopardy of all the other loans that are in there because we requested last week to move it,” McCarthy continued. “Speaker Pelosi and Chuck Schumer said no.

“She is the only thing holding it up. She sent an individual to the floor of the Senate to object,” he added. “Had they not objected, this would have passed [with] unanimous consent. The Democrats are objecting.

“Now we are up to 22 million Americans [unemployed] and Nancy Pelosi is spending the time behind a very expensive refrigerator bragging about her gourmet ice cream.”

Rep. McCarthy is referring to a segment on last Monday Night’s “Late, Late Show” with James Corden. Here it is for your viewing displeasure.

I combined these two stories to provide a stark contrast of two American “Leaders”

President Trump is working day and night to try to get America’s Economy functioning again so Americans can feed their families and pay their bills.

Meanwhile, Speaker Pelosi is showing off her enormous freezer with all sorts od decadent ice cream and gelato, safe within her walled mansion in San Francisco, California, where the homeless defecate of the streets, oblivious to all of the Americans who are out of work and the business owners who have had to lay them off and who now may have to close the doors of their businesses for good.

President Trump needs to call Congress back in session immediately and make them do the jobs which they were elected to do.

Liberals have been reminding everyone lately that America does not have a King.

They are exactly right.

However, we do have an Aristocracy…a Democratic one.

Trump Predicts a “Big Bounce” of an Economic Comeback After the Coronavirus Lockdown is Over…Why He is Right

April 10, 2020

1054122335

FoxNews.com reports that

President Trump on Thursday predicted a “big bounce” as he argued the U.S. economy will recover quickly from the massive hit it has taken because of the coronavirus pandemic — despite 16.8 million Americans losing their jobs in just the last three weeks.

As he teased possible deals to help out the ailing airline industry and help oil prices recover, Trump said he was confident that the flagging U.S. economy would come back from the drubbing taken since it was effectively shut down from the current pandemic.

“The economy is just going to do very well,” Trump said at the daily coronavirus taskforce briefing at the White House. “I think we’re going to have a big bounce…we’re going to open up very strong.”

Trump’s bravado was juxtaposed by the staggering jobs numbers from the week in which 6.6 million more Americans filed for unemployment benefits. Those number now mean that one in every 10 working Americans have lost their job in the last three weeks.

The figures collectively constitute the largest and fastest string of job losses in records dating to 1948. By contrast, during the Great Recession it took 44 weeks — roughly 10 months — for unemployment claims to go as high as they now have in less than a month.

The job market is quickly unraveling as businesses have shut down across the country. All told, in the past three weeks, 16.8 million Americans have filed for unemployment aid. The surge of jobless claims has overwhelmed state unemployment offices around the country. And still more job cuts are expected.

More than 20 million people may lose jobs this month. The unemployment rate could hit 15% when the April employment report is released in early May.

The viral outbreak is believed to have erased nearly one-third of the U.S. economy’s output in the current quarter. Forty-eight states have closed non-essential businesses.

The president’s optimistic outlook on economic recovery is not shared by some of the world’s top economists who say there are emerging signs that any recovery will fail to match the speed and severity of the economic collapse that occurred in just a few weeks. The 2020 presidential and Senate elections likely will take place as the world’s largest economy is still attempting to climb back from the deadly outbreak.

“Anyone who assumes we’re going to get a sharp snapback in activity isn’t thinking about how consumers are going to feel. They’re going to be very cautious,” said Nariman Behravesh, chief economist at IHS Markit. “Households and businesses have seen their finances deteriorate. People are buying groceries on their credit cards.”

If there is one bright spot, it is that Wall Street closed out its best week in 45 years on Thursday after the Federal Reserve launched its latest titanic effort to support the economy through the coronavirus outbreak.

…Trump’s press briefing began shortly after he finished a phone call with Russian President Vladimir Putin and King Salman of Saudi Arabia regarding global oil prices and the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries. Russia recently announced a deal with OPEC to cut down its oil production in an effort to prop up global prices.

Trump has said that output could be cut by as much as 15 million barrels a day, or about 15 percent of global production, though experts said that was unlikely. Instead, OPEC and Russia announced on Thursday that it cut the amount to 10 million barrels per day, or 10 percent of global supplies. Reductions of five million barrels per day are expected to come from other nations to help alleviate the largestt oil crisis in decades.

When I read the above article, I could not believe how absolutely gloom and doom negative that the writer was about Trump being able to restore our economy to the juggernaut that it was before the Chinese Coronavirus came to our shores.

Then I remembered that Rupert Murdoch was no longer in charge of Fox News Channel, his sons and their Liberal wives were, along with Never-Trumper Paul Ryan, among others.

I believe that the major factor concerning the ability for America’s Economy to come back is the amount of Government Aid given to small businesses to keep solvent so that they will be ready to rehire their staff and open their doors when the time comes.

Small businesses are the backbone of our economy.

Mitch McConnell suggested that more money be allotted to small business right now and Nancy Pelosi and the Congressional Democrats denied it because that would get in their way of tanking Trump’s Economy and making America a Socialist Paradise after they win the 2020 Presidential Election.

American businesses must be ready to hit the ground running once this “National Lockdown” is over with.

Any American with common sense knows that no one ever got a job from a poor man or woman.

The Democrats must be maneuvered into cooperating with the President and the Congressional Republicans in the matter of clearing the pathway for businesses to be able to start the engine of Capitalism moving once again.

If this happens, then just as he did the first time, President Trump will once again use his business acumen to help enable American businesses to rehire and run unencumbered.

Americans will work, they will get paid for their work, and they will spend their paycheck at other businesses, who will in turn hire more employees, etc. The same “geniuses who predict that the American Economy will not recover from this “invisible enemy” are the same ones who said that Trump would never be President and, once he was elected, said that the economy was never coming back.

The “Smartest People in the Room” also predicted that 2.2 million Americans would die from the Coronavirus. That number has been revised to 60,000 and will probably be revised to an even lower number.

Never underestimate Americans.

We can accomplish anything that we put our minds to.

Sham Impeachment 2-WuFLu Boogaloo: Pelosi Announces New Committee to “Investigate” Trump’s Response to Coronavirus

April 3, 2020

n_mitchell_brk_pelosi_committee_200402_1920x1080.nbcnews-fp-1200-630

FoxNews.com reports that

President Trump, speaking at the White House coronavirus briefing on Thursday, unloaded on Democrats who have created a new House committee with subpoena authority to investigate the federal response to the coronavirus pandemic.

Also during the press conference, Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin announced that the first round of stimulus checks will be directly deposited into Americans’ bank accounts in the next two weeks. And, Trump revealed he had again tested negative for coronavirus.

“We have seen Americans unite with incredible selflessness and compassion,” Trump began. “I want to remind everyone here in our nation’s capital, especially in Congress, that this is not the time for politics, endless partisan investigations. Here we go again. They’ve already done extraordinary damage to our country in recent years.”

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced Thursday she’s creating a new House committee to oversee the coronavirus response.

“It’s witch hunt after witch hunt after witch hunt,” Trump continued. “And in the end it’s people doing the witch hunt who are losing — and they’ve been losing by a lot. And it’s not any time for witch hunts.”

Speaking of the virus, Trump said: “It’s time to get this enemy defeated. Conducting these partisan investigations during a pandemic is a really big waste of vital resources, time, attention. And we want to fight for American lives, not waste time and build up my poll numbers, because that’s all they’re doing, because everyone knows it’s ridiculous.”

Trump echoed those remarks in a harshly worded letter to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., on Thursday. Trump was responding to what he called Schumer’s “Democrat public relations letter and incorrect sound bites, which are wrong in every way” concerning the federal coronavirus response.

“If you spent less time on your ridiculous impeachment hoax, which went haplessly on forever and ended up going nowhere (except increasing my poll numbers), and instead focused on helping the people of New York, then New York would not have been so completely unprepared for the ‘invisible enemy,'” Trump wrote.

The president added: “I’ve known you for many years, but I never knew how bad a Senator you are for the state of New York, until I became president.”

Trump further asserted that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez would “likely” defeat Schumer in a primary if she chose to run.

Schumer’s office later told Fox News that Schumer had worked things out with Trump, and that “after Sen. Schumer further made clear what he was requesting, the president said he was already in the process of sending a ‘very nasty letter’ to Sen. Schumer, but he would try to stop it from going out and would apologize to Sen. Schumer if he didn’t stop it in time.”

That apparently didn’t happen.

On Wednesday, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., compared the current pandemic to Pearl Harbor and the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, and called for a comprehensive probe.

“After Pearl Harbor and 9/11, we looked at what went wrong to learn from our mistakes. Once we’ve recovered, we need a nonpartisan commission to review our response and how we can better prepare for the next pandemic. I’m working on a bill to do that.”

Unlike the 9/11-style after-action committee that Schiff and others have proposed, Pelosi said the committee she formed Thursday is designed to address the “here and now” — specifically concerning the allocation of the historic amount of federal funds directed to economic recovery.

Pelosi compared the new committee to the Senate bipartisan committee chaired by then-Sen. Harry Truman in 1941 to investigate waste, fraud and abuse in defense spending in the early days of World War II.

“With over $2 trillion in emergency relief, we need to ensure those dollars are spent carefully and effectively,” Pelosi said of the massive stimulus bill Congress already passed to address the coronavirus pandemic.

Democrats’ allegation that the White House dawdled in the face of crisis came as Republicans pointed out that in January, when the Trump administration blocked travel from China and formed a coronavirus task force, Democrats were leading his impeachment.

U.S. intelligence reports in January and February warned of a likely pandemic, The Washington Post reported recently.

According to the Post: “Intelligence agencies ‘have been warning on this since January,’ said a U.S. official who had access to intelligence reporting that was disseminated to members of Congress and their staffs as well as to officials in the Trump administration, and who, along with others, spoke on the condition of anonymity to describe sensitive information.”

Despite that apparent warning, Schiff’s intelligence panel was focused elsewhere. Schiff’s Twitter feed did not mention the virus at all until Feb. 24, 2020, and Schiff’s House Office press releases didn’t mention it until March 15, 2020.

Instead, Schiff was almost exclusively focused on hiring staff to handle impeachment.

Well, gentle readers, it has finally happened.

Pelosi and the rest of the House Democrats’ Trump Derangement Syndrome has gotten so out of control that saving American lives is not their number one priority.

Their number one priority is to impeach President Trump over and over again until they somehow remove him from office.

As I was explaining yesterday after Rep. Adam “Ahab” Schiff expressed his desire to head an investigative committee about Trump’s handling of the Chinese Coronavirus, President Trump could raise his hand and part the Potomac River and the Democrats would say that he did not part the waters far enough apart.

Pelosi and the Democrats are so out of touch with average Americans living between the coasts that they actually believe that the majority of Americans are backing them in this petty and vindictive crusade of theirs, when the opposite is exactly true.

President Trump’s poll numbers have never been higher. Average Americans appreciate the manner in which he is handing this pandemic, as seen by the amount of Americans viewing the daily Coronavirus Taskforce Update.

Trump’s Press briefings have become so popular, in fact, that MSNBC and CNN have stopped carrying them, no doubt following the request of their masters, the Democrat Elite, like Pelosi.

Trump’s surging popularity, along with Joe Biden’s rapidly deteriorating mental capacity is no doubt helping to fueling this new “investigative committee” which Pelosi has pulled out of her backside.

It is both sad and infuriating watching politicians who are supposed to be serving the American Public only care about their own political power.

And, this self-involvement and TDS are causing the Democrats to attempt to rewrite history and to attempt to hide the fact that Trump’s China Travel Ban in January was the right thing to do while they were involved in their Sham Impeachment, causing them to be oblivious to approaching Coronavirus until it was too late.

Revisionist History leading to a farcical and failed attempt at impeachment.

Gosh, haven’t we already gone through this already recently?

Until He Comes,
