Senate Democrats block economic rescue bill after Pelosi pulls powerplay in House

Senate Democrats block economic rescue bill after Pelosi pulls powerplay in House

“Senate spends all weekend negotiating a bipartisan deal. Agreement reached. Pelosi flies in from California, whips out her unrelated ‘wishlist,’ and says no. Senate Democrats then vote against proceeding on a bill they negotiated. Jaw dropping.”

The supposed bipartisanship to help the economic fallout from the Wuhan coronavirus fell apart on Sunday after Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi returned to DC.

Coincidence? Probably not because the minute she gets back, shows off her “wishlist,” the Democrats vote no on a bill they negotiated.

Six hours ago:

Then it fails to advance.

From The Daily Caller:

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Sunday said she will halt negotiations with the Senate and move to pass her own coronavirus package in the House, which could drag things out longer than many expected. Pelosi’s legislation will be a $1.6 trillion emergency package, according to Politico.

The text for a phase-three Senate bill announced Friday would give $1,200 checks to every person, while couples would receive $2,400. That $1,200 check will go to Americans making less than $75,000 annually. Each child will receive $500. The amount is reduced by $5 for every $100 a person earns over $75,000. Those making above $99,000 would not get any money.

The GOP’s bill also includes specific provisions for disabled veterans, low-income seniors, and individuals with no income tax liability with at least $2,500 in qualifying income, according to The Senate Finance Committee. There will also be a much smaller benefit of $600 for millions without federal tax liability.

A task force reportedly gave the idea to Republicans during their caucus lunch. Republican South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham reportedly opposes direct payments. However, Graham said he is “willing to pay 75 percent of people’s income up to $80,000 to get us through,” adding, “this ought to be enough money to get us through the next six to eight weeks.”

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell unloaded on Pelosi after the vote:

Others noted on Twitter that they can see right through Pelosi’s games, but know that the MSM will spin it to blame the Republicans.

BACKGROUND — Democrats’ Plan: “This is a tremendous opportunity to restructure things to fit our vision”

The Hill:

On a Thursday conference call featuring more than 200 members of the House Democratic caucus, lawmakers one by one laid out a sweeping wish list of provisions they want to see included in the nascent package, including a boost in infrastructure spending, an expansion of Social Security benefits and funding for states to set up an all-mail voting system in the event the pandemic extends into November’s elections.

“This is a tremendous opportunity to restructure things to fit our vision,” Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-S.C.) told lawmakers, according to a source on the call.

    hubris appears to be kind…

    could it be dementia or de-nastiness…

There is a special place in Hell…

I believe she (and some others) wants to crash the economy, thinking it will defeat Trump and the republicans in the fall. Not really paranoid–but the timing “this can last nine months” — ie just long enough

Comanche Voter | March 22, 2020 at 7:38 pm

Nancy rides in, gets off her broom, and takes one of those mushy brown San Francisco treats she picked up on the street in her district, and throws it in the legislative punchbowl. Never let a crisis go to waste–get what you want and the heck with everybody else. Pelosi–a true patriot–sarc.

    Nothing says Wicked Witch of the West Coast better than breezing into town on her broom and setting a bipartisan bill on fire.

      artichoke in reply to georgfelis. | March 23, 2020 at 4:24 am

      I blame all the Dems. I don’t think it was ever bipartisan, they were just BSing the R’s.

      Recall how some of the senators said they would vote to acquit on the bogus impeachment. When the actual vote came, they had perfect party discipline. Schumer has managed to lead almost perfect party discipline. They care about nothing but their partisan agenda, and hurting Trump too.

It’s really too bad that vile skank doesn’t play softball for the R team. Or work out with Hairy Reed. She needs a dose of one or the other….maybe both.

Eastwood Ravine | March 22, 2020 at 7:39 pm

I had heard it’s all about keeping Planned Parenthood open and viable. What part of no “elective procedures” do they not understand. Even temporarily, those Planned Parenthood “medical professionals” should be serving real patients in clinics and hospitals.I have no doubt because, (a) Democrats never let a crisis go to waist to advance their agenda, and (b) Chuck-you Schumer thinks he’ll have the upper hand with 4 Republican Senators in quarantine because they’re positive for COVID-19.

    Dolce Far Niente in reply to Eastwood Ravine. | March 22, 2020 at 11:21 pm

    You don’t want abortionists giving real medical care to anyone; there is a reason they are abortionists, and its not because they were good at their trade.

    Its where the drunks and the hacks who should have had their licence to practice lifted end up; or the ones who are lured by the all cash nature of the “business”.

Morning Sunshine | March 22, 2020 at 7:45 pm

honestly, I am kind of glad…. It was a pork-ulus bill from top to bottom. The Rs are filling in some pet projects also. I do hope something sane can be passed to help my fellow Americans, but I do not hold out hope.

There is also the flip side that if this goes on too long, a lot more people will be hurt. Real Americans* who work hard and play hard and love hard

*as opposed to DC swamp rats and the media who do none of the above

    The problem is the Republican have been, and are, terrible at messaging. The political wing of the MSM throws a left handed monkey wrench into the already negotiated bill and the MSM will work overtime (with union negotiated overtime pay?) to make sure the people believe it is the Republican’s fault.

    The President needs to get on this and beat the Socialist-Democrats, in particular the Schmeckel and Pelousy, like a drum not only with twittercrap, but during his daily briefing. Again and Again and Again until they don’t know which way is up to get out of the hole they have dug for themselves.

    if you are naive enough to believe there won’t be far more pork when Pelosi gets done with it, I have some oceanfront property in Kansas I’d like to talk to you about.

      Morning Sunshine in reply to bw222. | March 22, 2020 at 9:02 pm

      oh yeah, totally more pork. I think people are misunderstanding my comment. I almost feel like ANY bill will be a long-term disaster.

      I feel like the best move will be for Trump to continue removing regulations that are killing innovation and jobs. And to use whatever constitutional authority to help those effected.

      Anything the congress can pass will be a bad thing for this country. Depend on it

1) “We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it.”

2) “and if there’s some collateral damage for some others who do not share our view, well, so be it”

Just a couple of my favorite Pelosi quotes…..for the children.

Katy L. Stamper | March 22, 2020 at 7:48 pm

Bill Maher is getting his wish. Another sick dysfunctional leftie.

I would like to be a fly on millions of walls, so I can see people who voted for dems in Congress react to what she is doing to THEM. Just like blacks, the dems are taking all their voters for granted.

Dems, you need to rein in this witch. She’ll burn America and YOU in the process. Dems, do you REALLY think this barn-burning can be kept hidden from the American people?

You’re betting your careers on it.

    Most of those Socialist-Democrat voters will believe whatever the MSM/Socialist-Democrats tell them. They will be 100% sure, as sure a Lemmings going over the cliff, that they are doing the right thing.

Sounds like an opportunity to rubbish that deadly “student loan cancellation” garbage. Now Pelosi can be blamed when that never happens after her blatant power move kills everything.

why was the house out of session last week in the first place?

Ten simple words:

Use the bully pulpit, and throw them under the bus.

    bhwms in reply to tiger66. | March 23, 2020 at 9:46 am

    Yes! Exactly! Lay out the vision directly to the American people. Then when they deliver something that is 180 degrees off course, slam them again.

Damn why did they put her to work right when she got off the plane? She probably had a “rough” flight and needed to sleep it off.

2smartforlibs | March 22, 2020 at 8:36 pm

Time to recall every liberal that represents you. Call you local GOP and find out how.

    Milhouse in reply to 2smartforlibs. | March 22, 2020 at 11:21 pm

    Members of Congress can’t be recalled. There is no such thing as recall in the US constitution.

      faboutlaws in reply to Milhouse. | March 23, 2020 at 1:00 am

      Why you guys diss Millhouse all the time is beyond me. Most of the time he’s right.

        Half the time at best.

        Morning Sunshine in reply to faboutlaws. | March 23, 2020 at 8:09 am

        I agree. Milhouse, while I might not always agree with him, and sometimes I do not have the knowledge base to say “he is right” or “he is wrong,” always makes me think about my preconceived thoughts and beliefs. I appreciate someone that makes me think.

        Thank you Milhouse.

      DaveGinOly in reply to Milhouse. | March 23, 2020 at 11:53 am

      Nor does the Constitution prohibit it. It is merely silent on the issue, not describing a method to recall a member of Congress. This is not the same thing as “unconstitutional,” “no allowed,” or “impossible.”

      Voting is a right. Recall must also be a right, because it is not prohibited. Because the federal Constitution neither creates a mechanism for it nor prohibit it, this must be a power reserved to the States and their peoples.

        LegalParty in reply to DaveGinOly. | March 23, 2020 at 1:14 pm

        Out of the blue, the Reserved Powers argument.

        Milhouse in reply to DaveGinOly. | March 23, 2020 at 4:05 pm

        This line of argument is completely invalid.

        Recalling a member cannot be a “reserved power” because before the constitution was enacted no such power could possibly have existed.

        The Congress is a creature of the constitution, so its criteria for membership are completely described in it. For instance, surely you don’t dispute that the qualifications for office listed in the constitution are exclusive, that no state may add to them, and that even the congress itself may not refuse to seat a member for any reason except those listed.

        Oh, and voting is not a constitutionally protected right. It’s a right granted by state law. All the constitution has to say about it is that states may not limit the franchise on certain specific grounds. And those limits didn’t start until the 15th amendment. Even the fourteenth amendment didn’t interfere with states’ right to restrict the franchise as much as they liked, it merely created a penalty if they did so.

          artichoke in reply to Milhouse. | March 24, 2020 at 1:37 am

          The president is also a constitutional office, but nobody checked the qualifications of 44. They were debated throughout his presidency, and 45’s announcement that he was copacetic didn’t resolve the question, it just killed off the issue that it was no longer worth hashing over.

As I see it there are only a few paths forward.

1. McConnell/Trump stand firm, Pelosi overwhelmed by negative reaction caves by Thursday.
2. Pelosi discounts negative reaction refuses to budge and r concede.
3. PDJT orders HoR and Senate into emergency session refusing to let them leave D.C. until he gets a meaningful bill without extra crap.
4. Some combination of the above.

Bottom line my prediction is that:
1. Pelosi and Schumer with d in general taking way more heat than they thought and conceding.
2. All sense of goodwill and bipartisanship has been destroyed for the foreseeable future based on this nakedly partisan power play by the d.
3. The regular folks are paying attention to this and are going to light up the phones to their elected officials.
4. The regular folks will recognize this power play for what it is and this alone will shift the elections another 3-5 percent towards PDJT, r Senate and House candidates.

This is the single most stupid display by supposedly crafty politicians, Pelosi and Schumer, that I could have imagined.

    artichoke in reply to CommoChief. | March 22, 2020 at 8:45 pm

    There was never any bipartisanship. All the Dems fell in line with Nancy’s proposals. That meant the other stuff didn’t matter and was essentially just meant water down the R position.

    Repeat. There was never any bipartisanship. In the worse national emergency perhaps ever, there was never any. There could never be any, if not now.

    Get us through this, but never, ever forget that.

      CommoChief in reply to artichoke. | March 22, 2020 at 9:48 pm


      The r Senate majority demonstrated their willingness to act in a bipartisan way by passing the two House proposals. They then negotiated the outlines of a deal with d Senate minority. That was bipartisan.

      Now that willingness to allow input by the d minority has expired. My suggestion is to require a substantive filibuster, maintaining floor through two opportunities to speak each, then moving the question. I take from McConnell the statement that he will bring the bill again ‘ at a time of his choosing’ to mean he is willing to keep the Senate in active session and stampede his members to the floor for a vote when d are unable to react.

      At any rate McConnell is quite aware of every parliamentary rule needed to make this happen. Like him or not, I mostly don’t, but you have to respect his ability to push legislation. When he wants to do so, now he wants to.

        artichoke in reply to CommoChief. | March 23, 2020 at 4:22 am

        I read that Mitch will bring the motion back 15 minutes after the markets open today, because according to futures markets, the prices will fall off a cliff.

        I like Mitch a lot. I really enjoyed his book.

    Katy L. Stamper in reply to CommoChief. | March 22, 2020 at 9:00 pm

    Remember when Trump, Pelosi and Schumer were in the Oval Office negotiating over the govt. shutdown. Pelosi wanted the cameras GONE.

    If McConnell had guts, he’d put cameras into all the negotiating offices and put it out live. LIVE!!!

    Let all of America Hear For Themselves, Who Wants Want. Pelosi would have a coronary, which would remove a roadblock to America remaining standing instead of sinking to her knees.

    Another alternative is that McConnell could nuke the filibuster, in a “national emergency”, and put a passed bill 100% in Pelosi’s lap. Let’s see if the house Dems would then dare to vote against it.

      Katy L. Stamper in reply to jb4. | March 22, 2020 at 11:12 pm

      Good idea. Reid nuked it for inferior judges, so it can be selectively altered!

      Milhouse in reply to jb4. | March 22, 2020 at 11:32 pm

      No. Because once it’s gone it’s gone. It can never be brought back, and the scope of the repeal can’t be artificially limited, as we saw with Reid’s distinction between Supreme Court justices and all other offices, which collapsed as soon as a vacancy appeared on SCOTUS (and would have done so under a D majority too, as the Ds openly admitted).

        artichoke in reply to Milhouse. | March 23, 2020 at 4:30 am

        Reid’s nuclear option was artificially limited, and the only reason SCOTUS got included was because the R’s get a Senate majority.

        There is no bipartisan desire to work together anymore. Zero. The country can go down the tubes and the Dems won’t care, they may like it if they can hurt Trump thereby. They want communism, and if the US has to be destroyed first, they’ll call it creative destruction among themselves.

        Therefore one doesn’t invite the Dems to destroy the filibuster for most legislation if one destroys it for one bill now. They would do it anyway if it helped their agenda, if they got the majority.

        Just destroy the filibuster with a rule applying to this particular bill. Shove it down their throats, the more aggressively the better. Because the American people can see that this bill is needed.

      CommoChief in reply to jb4. | March 22, 2020 at 11:45 pm

      Could end the rule allowing the legislative filibuster, but that would be forever more, not likely to be resuscitated.

      IMO better by far would be to force a floor vote on a motion to proceed and have Schumer and the d minority filibuster. All day video of the d minority standing between the average person and a check is a look the d do not want. Based on their duplicity McConnell is likely to force their hand.

        artichoke in reply to CommoChief. | March 23, 2020 at 4:37 am

        Can they force them to do Mr. Smith Goes to Washington? I thought it was all handled with votes now due to rule changes, no need to actually “debate” on and on.

        artichoke in reply to CommoChief. | March 23, 2020 at 4:41 am

        I believe the motion that failed yesterday, that needed 60 votes, was the “Motion to Proceed”. If it had passed with 60 votes, then there would be up to 30 hours of debate and amendments, followed by the vote on the bill which would require only a simple majority.

        bhwms in reply to CommoChief. | March 23, 2020 at 10:00 am

        That’s what I would do. Force them to really filibuster.

        Remember that Star Trek episode “A Taste of Armageddon?” The planet was at war with another planet – all simulation by computer. They forgot what real war was like. This feels just like that episode.

        I don’t think the Republicans remember what a real Filibuster is like. The Democrats have to hold the floor. Sure they can yield around, but make them do it. 24×7. No breaks. Eventually, the American people will get pissed off enough and public sentiment will go against the Democrats they will be forced to allow a vote.

Republicans should henceforth budge an inch behind the scenes, their cooperation is over. Let Nancy take the blame. Where’s Biden urging bipartisanship? His inaction accrues against him now as the presumptive nominee.

    4fun in reply to artichoke. | March 22, 2020 at 9:27 pm

    I see his picture now and again on milk cartons and a picture with phone number strips on telephone poles asking anyone who sees him to call the number and let them know where he was last seen.

There is America, and then there is the democrat/GOPe cash cow.

Pelosi, the media, biden, kerry, obama, clinton romney and the rest are part of the latter. Treason comes into it as well.

It’s that simple. We are being played like no one has ever imaged.

Time to close the curtain on the treasonous rats like pelosi and clinton.

Katy L. Stamper | March 22, 2020 at 8:51 pm

Here’s Pelosi’s office number. I just left a message.

(202) 225-4965

Katy L. Stamper | March 22, 2020 at 8:54 pm

Here’s her contact page if you wish to email her.

Was she sober? This fossil has been known to find her way into the Grey Goose.

I don’t care who blocks this travesty, but dropping hundred dollar bills from helicopters is pure insanity.

My God, what an evil human she is. Just. Pure. Evil.

I heard a question at the presser today that seemed fed in by Pelosi to her minion in the MSM. It seemed to be a set up for something like this….and so it was.

The Wuhan Corona Virus reaction is ALL political theater. And, it is much wider than these incidents make it seem.

It is unlikely that Pelosi is working on her own or solely for herself. This is all interconnected.

Torpedoing the essentially bipartisan Senate bill is necessary to keep the crisis alive as well as making it possible continuing to blame Trump. This is all about the 2020 Presidential election, it is no longer about the virus. There is one Democratic nationally known politician who is going against the Democratic grain, Gov. Cuomo. He is, quite literally, the only Democrat who is sounding even remotely sane, on the Democrat side. And, he suddenly rose to prominence as the hysteria over the virus is beginning to wane among the populous. At the same time, Joe Biden has suddenly dropped out of sight, after recent rambling remarks. Now the Conservative Tree house has an interesting theory concerning recent Democrat actions. That theory is that Cuomo is being set up as the Democrat nominee for President, rather than Biden. But, a leopard remains a leopard and its spots can be seen if someone looks closely, even if it is painted to look like a pony. Of course, if there is a distraction, it is possible that people will not look too closely. whether this is accurate or not, is presently unknown.

So, do not lose sight of the big picture, with regards to the short term goals of the Dems. That is to defeat Trump for President in 2020. And, they do not care who they have to hurt to accomplish that. If you remember that, a lot of things happening make more sense.

    artichoke in reply to Mac45. | March 23, 2020 at 4:34 am

    Cuomo is indeed acting like a leader now, for the first time in his governorship. He grew up under his father Mario Cuomo, NY governor. There is nothing broad-minded about them, but Cuomo may see an opportunity to replace a senile presumptive party nominee. His father always wanted to be president.

    At least this way Cuomo will earn that bridge (the new Tappan Zee Bridge) that he renamed after his father and, by association and shared name, himself.

This is the moment I decided this virus is nothing more than a giant political football.

If it were serious, she would already be dead.

Subotai Bahadur | March 22, 2020 at 11:31 pm

In ANY political system that works, regardless of specific ideological basis, there has to be a level of legitimacy and there has to be a level of trust in the word of political opponents in any legislation. When the people lose belief in that legitimacy, and the political opponents have to assume that any agreement is a lie; the only alternative is to eventually resort to Clausewitz’ dictum:

Der Krieg ist eine bloße Fortsetzung der Politik mit anderen Mitteln.” War is merely a continuation of Politics by other means.

Subotai Bahadur

Ok, I’m trying to figure out exactly how to react to this.

On the one hand, if she and her cronies have ANY worry about the risk of this move in a fair and objective world, then they should know they just screwed up big time.

What do I mean by that? The time to play these games and grandstand while pretending to care about “the people’s needs” was yesterday during the negotiations. Now, they look either incompetent, like bad faith negotiators at America’s expense, or both.

On the other hand, my pessimistic side sees Democrats getting complete media cover for this desperation attempt at grabbing political clout and pulling off another big kabuki theater ploy just like most of Obama’s years.

I hope my pessimistic side gets put in check and reality wins the day.

    CommoChief in reply to healthguyfsu. | March 23, 2020 at 12:07 am

    The d are, as usual, hoping that the r Senate majority allows itself to be held hostage. The d strategy is twofold:
    1. Jam up the legislation with unrelated amendments that they know the r Senate majority won’t agree on and:
    A. Now hope the r concede and give in, Preston they have moved the ball on a bunch of d agenda items
    B. Now the r Senate majority refuses and the d MSM allies are able to cast the r as the bad actors

    Their problem is that their ploy depends upon the average person not recognizing what is actually happening and that the MSM will be able to help disguise the truth for a long time.

    If McConnell and PDJT hold firm, those of us who do see the ploy can raise Hell on the Congressional phone lines, local op-ed, radio call in etc then the ability of the MSM to mask the ploy is limited in duration. That means McConnell and PDJT can tell Schumer and Pelosi to pound sand, because the pressure on the d will mount by the hour. It already is mounting. The coverage of this so far is neutral to the d at best. That fact alone tells you the MSM believes that Schumer and Pelosi will have to walk this back.

      artichoke in reply to CommoChief. | March 23, 2020 at 4:46 am

      There’s also the fact that the media members or their families are personally scared of the consequences of not handling this as well as possible.

      Also more primally, in times of trouble, the alpha male becomes more attractive. Some of those Dem tools may actually be starting to appreciate PDJT, although if it gets fixed they’ll probably spring right back to their normal hatred, because they’re such righteous and grateful souls.

    This is EXACTLY the same routine that North Korea, Saddam Hussein, Iran, Palestinians, and the Democrats have pulled on Republicans for years.

    1. Negotiate in good faith until an acceptable compromise is reached.
    2. Nuke it by throwing in a giant pile of ‘gimmies’ and demanding the Republicans give in to all of it or the whole thing is scrap and they’ll blame us.
    3. Watch as the spineless Republicans cave to every demand.

    I have no confidence in any Republican other than Trump to withstand this kind of Lucy yanking the football crap. The Wicked Witch of the West Coast deserves to be roasted royally.

Clown 1396 XL | March 22, 2020 at 11:49 pm

Remember, all things good are credited to Democrats by the press, and all things bad are credited to Republicans. So the press will say that the GOP is holding up funding. Then the GOP will cave like they always do.

They’re probably concerned that elective surgeries, including planned parenthood, will be delayed in order to prioritize medical resources to treat people and save lives. That, and the social contagion spread by media and social platforms, will probably tamp down the curve.

November can’t come fast enough, prune face.

Anyone who supports the self-serving and vile Dhimmi-crats at this juncture in time, with their open borders insanity, and, their prosperity-killing agenda, is utterly insane and deserves total condemnation.

Paul Compton | March 23, 2020 at 6:52 am

Can someone please explain to me how the Democrats suddenly have the numbers to block a bill in the Senate?

Asking from the other side of the World!

    It was a 60 vote required to pass cloture vote.

    Milhouse in reply to Paul Compton. | March 23, 2020 at 4:13 pm

    In the senate it takes 60 votes to end debate (or rather to allow only 30 more hours of debate) and then proceed to a vote. Reid got rid of this rule for nominations, which is why Trump’s nominations have been moving, but for legislation the rule remains in place.

    Remember that 0bamacare only passed because the Dems had 60 senators, and the moment they had only 59 they could no longer pass any amendments to it.

I recommend you all get out today and buy more guns and ammo to be prepared for the coming revolution.

Once again the dems cannot miss a good crisis. China is at the root of this crisis. Having said that the behavior of the dems sadly is what we see all the time.

The dems screw the people and America. They clearly want to see the America destroyed either by moving to socialism or wreaking the economy. Their most important goals are always get a job in politics, stay in the job, steal all they can from the people and work for chaos every day.

I am a member of the last best living American generation thanks to the actions of the dems. My children and their children will never, ever have lives as good as I have had.

The malaria drugs are being blind tested in our country right now.These are the drugs that are going to squash this bs flu and get us over this political pandemic. I believe this whole thing is all political. Deaths are not even near numbers for the regular flu but we listen to totals and updates daily. Are we going to have influenza totals thrust at us daily next winter?

Yes I agree that the dems have gotten what they want out of this. A wrecked economy, Americans being made to be dependent on government AGAIN.

I hope the American Voters are Awake enough to remember this next time they vote and REMOVE ALL DEMONRATS FROM PUBLIC OFFICE !!!!

Why does the single mom working as a waitress to support her kids suffer until PLANNED BUTCHERHOOD gets fully funded? How can you support the left on anything?

Well, I guess the Senate GOP has no choice now but to roll over like good little doggies and pass the Speaker’s bill. After all, we gotta get it done and we don’t have time anymore.

Mykee the Patriot | March 23, 2020 at 10:07 am

Government corruption. That’s all there is to it. 330 million Americans and 4% are millionaires. 535 or so congressmen and women and 51% are millionaires and they make less than $200,000.00 a year. How? Corruption. It’s time for this s**t to stop! They don’t care about us. Only money and power. One more time I’m going to say this. 8 year term limits!!! Get them out of there now! Anyway we have to do it!!!!!

Americans are not stupid. The tighter folks’ finances become, the more they’ll look to Congressional wrangling as the real source of their current woes. This is going to work as well as refusing to submit the impeachment articles to the Senate in a timely fashion did.

Like I said, Americans are not stupid.

    DaveGinOly in reply to Hollymon. | March 23, 2020 at 12:38 pm

    The Dems are counting on fake news to see them through. But that horse may have already left the barn after the “Russia, Russia, Russia” debacle. Americans are now wary of the constant, anti-Trump wailing of the MSM. The Dems and their MSM confederates shot their collective bolt with the Mueller investigation and it missed the mark, revealing that fake news is not a conservative fantasy.

Anyone who doubts that the democrats are NOT this country’s biggest enemy is NOT paying attention.
