Pelosi’s crazy $3T coronavirus spending bill may
have secret purpose – Don’t underestimate her

Original Article

Posted By: Harlowe, 5/16/2020 12:40:29 PM

When House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced the $3 trillion coronavirus spending bill she and her allies had written--a bill passed by House Democrats Friday night with only a single Republican vote in support--my first reaction was that it would be dead on arrival in the Senate and that the move made no sense.(Snip)Pelosi is a survivor. She is tough. She is hardworking, and she has been through a lot of campaigns--and seen and executed a lot of maneuvers. Therefore, you must assume there is a sound strategic reason for Pelosi to bring forward a bill that is this radical, expensive, and controversial.

Comments:

Newt offers sound reasoning forNancy’s strategy such as this being a base turnout election with Republicans more energized thanDemocrats. The bill designed to mobilize cannibus users; pro-abortion activists; illegals; tax cuts for richest in blue states; cash for debt-ridden states, especially pension debt to stir support from unions. Possibly counting on Republicans and Independents losing focus so in a few weeks they will have forgotten this monstrous bill. Her base will be fired-up to elect JoeBiden as well asDemocrat majorities in the House and Senate “so they can get the ideological and financial goodies she has woven into this bill.”

Probably true. Pelosi is not especially sharp in many ways, but she is conniving, devious, manipulative, and cunning when it comes to power politics.

Fist, I would like to know who the Republican was that voted for this really, really, stupid bill. No Republican in the Senate will vote for this bill. Yes, Pelosi is planning to use this bill failure as a political weapon. She, and all the Democrats, have done nothing but try to oust Trump since he was elected. Pelosi has done nothing for the nation in the last 3 years.

Yup, its just Nancy's little preview of coming attractions. The only problem is that hard-core communist voters are not the only ones sitting in the theater. In addition to the ever-present political geeks there are now millions of home bound Americans who once led productive lives that left them little time for politics. They've endured a lot under house arrest and have had the time to see, hear and experience the real world consequences of "progressive" policies. The commies have overplayed their hand and overstayed their welcome, yet they are gripped by panic and unable to think and behave in any other manner. MAGA:KAG - The Big Ugly is here. Hang tough Trumpers.

The problem with the Republicans is, while the Democrats vote in lockstep, a lot of Republicans are “UniParty” wimps who are scared to death to offend the Democrats, who in a minute would kick those wimpy Republicans into the gutter.

Newt knows well that this is a House Christmas tree. He knows well that most of the nonsense will fall away in final negotiations. He knows some of the foolish stuff will come through, because Mitch will decide "It was the best we could do", and Mitch is a UNIPARTY stalwart who wants badly to spread that THREE TRILLION around like everyone else, both to his home state and to his supporting special interests. And the little guy will get his beak wet, too. $1200 wasn't enough...how about $6000?

It's no secret...she absolutely knows it won't get through the Senate the way it is, and if by some insane reason it does get pared down and Trump refuses to sign it, she can then harp that the President didn't want to yada yada yada...she needs to go away..permanently...sad that so many good people die and those like her keep on running like the Energizer bunny....beating her liberal drum...

We know Pelosi is crazy but I'm more worried about what McConnell will do. Is he considering trade offs in order to pass something and make it look like Congress is doing something? Usually all Mitch cares about is getting something for his state. I certainly hope Trump is not wanting to sign anything to appear to be doing something also.

This bill is was not created by Pelosi. She has a committee that write eveything up for her. She is only given the bullet points. "You have to pass the bill in order to know what's in it." Yeah, that Pelosi! Does anyone actually think she can write a paragraph. I heard her answer a question on one of the shows yesterday. You could tell she was reading the prepared answer to it. Which meant she knew the question before hand. When has to speak off the cuff, she's worse than Biden. She couldn't remember Gavin Newsom or Kevin McCarthy's names.

She puts all this outlandish rubbish in the bill so when they bargain and she gives up something, she can tell liberals the Republicans are mean and hate them. She gets exactly what she wants. When she came out with that mask on the other day, I couldn't help but call her what she is- a robber.

'It was the greatest political crime in the history of our country,' Trump said of his predecessor and Biden, the presumed Democratic nominee.

The opening credits of the Perry Mason television drama featured a statue of justice as a blindfolded woman raising aloft a pair of scales. This common visual metaphor captures the two critical dimensions of justice: balancing the punishment with the crime, and the equality of all under the law. Four years ago the Obama administration and rogue partisans in the FBI and DOJ abused their powers in order to keep Donald Trump from being elected, and then to hamstring and sabotage his administration.(Snip)But if the verification of these crimes is not followed by indictments and the malefactors put on trial, our political system will be seriously damaged

"This will be one of the first opportunities for Dr. Fauci to tell the American people the unvarnished truth without the president lurking over his shoulder,” Sen. Charles Schumer said Monday. So the New York Democrat had high expectations for Fauci’s testimony to the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions on Tuesday. “If some areas--cities states or what have you--jump over those barriers, checkpoints and prematurely open up without having the capability of being able to respond effectively and efficiently,” Fauci testified. “My concern is that we will start to see little spikes that might turn into outbreaks.” But the news wasn’t all bad.

Former U.S. Attorney Brett Tolman thought he had "seen everything" over the course of his career until a federal judge opened the door Tuesday for legal experts and other outside parties to oppose the Justice Department’s motion to drop the case against former national security adviser Michael Flynn. Appearing on "Fox & Friends," Tolman said he believed Judge Emmet Sullivan's decision was "outrageous" and that the Washington D.C. judge had turned himself into an "activist," willing to set aside rules, ethics, and precedent in favor of partisanship.

The Department of Justice, after concluding that the prosecution of Michael Flynn was the product of misconduct by FBI and DOJ officials, moved to drop the case against Flynn.(Snip)A judge has discretion whether to allow a case to be dropped, but normally if the prosecution doesn’t want to prosecute, a judge will not force a prosecution. But where a guilty plea has been entered and accepted by the court, and a motion to withdraw the plea rejected by the court, the court has a lot more power because the prosecution, in a sense, is over already. Only sentencing remains.

Facebook controls as much as 80% of social media traffic. That means that it has the power to erase conversations, shift narratives, and control how people speak to one another. With 190 million users in the United States, the social network monopoly has more control over what people see than all of the media giants combined do. And now Facebook is putting some very troubling political activists in charge of its Oversight Board who will decide how it censors.(Snip)Only a quarter of the Oversight Board originates from the United States. That means three quarters of the censorship court comes from countries with no First Amendment.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is happy to play rank politics with the federal coronavirus response. Exhibit A is the absurd $3 trillion “relief” bill she’s set for floor vote on Friday. It’s the first emergency bill written by one party with zero input from the other. Some Dems say it’s just an “opening bid,” but why waste time crafting 1,800 pages of legislation full of poison pills for the opposition? It seems Pelosi thinks virtue-signaling to her base is worth the trouble. The bill is packed with junk that has nothing to do with the pandemic or the economic chaos the response to it has created.
