Today’s Campaign Update (Because the Campaign Never Ends)
They literally corrupt everything they touch. – Including stimulus bills in time of national emergency, as we found out last night. At the prodding of Nancy Pelosi, Senate Democrats banded together to filibuster the stimulus bill working its way through that chamber, a bill that had been exhaustively negotiated between congressional leader of both parties – including San Fran Nan – for three days. By late morning on Sunday, it appeared that a deal had been struck:
This morning I hosted a meeting with congressional leadership and Sec. Mnuchin. It is time to come together, finalize the results of our bipartisan discussions, and get the CARES Act to the President’s desk. pic.twitter.com/HierUIlNVC

But just hours after that meeting concluded, San Fran Nan began making noises about how the Senate bill was “inadequate” and promising to move her own bill in the House. The hangup? Well, abortion, of course. Seems the Senate bill doesn’t provide a bailout for Planned Parenthood, and the party of abortion on demand cannot possibly allow their baby-killing machine to suffer like everyone else in our society. It’s their religion, after all. Well, one of their religions, along with Climate Change and Alinskyism.
From the PJMedia article linked above:
Even more ominous to Democrats was a Medicaid restriction that would hurt Planned Parenthood and other non-profits.
A Democratic aide said that the small business provision was drafted to exclude non-profits who receive Medicaid from being eligible for Small Business Administration assistance offered under the bill. That, according to the aide, would impact Planned Parenthood but also community health centers, rape crisis centers and disability service providers.
Planned Parenthood is not a “small business” and non-profits, as their name implies, aren’t “businesses” either. Tens of millions of dollars — or more — could be denied to real small businesses who need that cash as well.
Thus, the Democrats are willing to tank the stock market even further and throw thousands more people out of jobs so that their baby-killing “non-profit” (except from the sale of baby body parts) factories can keep killing. Does it get any more ghoulish than that? Hard to imagine how.
Meanwhile, Quid Pro Joe prepares to create even more confusion and division. – Many have been wondering where the nation’s Unfrozen Caveman Senator has been over the past week, since he basically disappeared from view after wins in several state primaries on Tuesday.
The answer came in a piece by Politico on Friday: He’s planning to hold what he is calling “regular shadow briefings” to provide his supporters in the corrupt news media with alternative talking points to what the President’s Coronavirus Task Force is telling the public:
Joe Biden is planning a regular shadow briefing on coronavirus to start as early as Monday to show how he would handle the crisis and address what he calls the lies and failures of President Trump.
Biden gave a preview of what’s to come in a conference call with reporters Friday, where he listed a litany of false and misleading statements from Trump, who has been holding regular White House press conferences concerning coronavirus preparedness and response that have been broadcast live on all major networks.
“President Trump stop saying false things, will ya?” Biden said. “People are worried they are really frightened, when these things don’t come through. He just exacerbates their concern. Stop saying false things you think make you sound like a hero and start putting the full weight of the federal government behind finding fast, safe and effective treatments.”
Biden made his comments from his home in Wilmington, Delaware, where he has been holed up for more than a week in adherence with Centers for Disease Control guidelines that urge people to practice social distancing.
Why would he do this, you ask? Why, because the Task Force briefings have proved to be very effective in keeping the public informed, in the process providing the President with a platform to speak directly to the American people. As a result, the President’s public approval rating has skyrocketed, rising into the mid-50s in multiple polls last week.
This reality created a panic situation in the Democrat/media complex of propaganda late in the week. The media responded with a new narrative, accusing the President of lying, with op/eds in both the NY Times and Washington Post demanding that the networks actually stop covering the briefings. Now, despite Quid Pro Joe’s obvious advancing mental decline, they are urging him to get out there multiple times a week to provide a rebuttal to the President that all the networks will also air.
So, in a time of national crisis and a declared state of national emergency, we see the Democrats and their media toadies planning a process that is intentionally designed to decrease public confidence in government, increase confusion and produce outright panic.
Make no mistake about it: That is literally the outcome these demented and depraved people prefer. They are so mad with their pursuit of power that they would rather see millions of ordinary Americans suffer, lose their retirements, and see mass rioting in the streets than to see President Trump’s public approval ratings tick up by 5 percentage points because he’s doing a good job.
It used to be fair to merely say that a vote for a Democrat is a vote for socialism. As of this morning, it is entirely fair to say that a vote for a Democrat is a vote for the destruction of our economy and our society.
Stop doing it, folks.
That is all.
