As America faces peril, its nemesis is NOT the Big Orange Monster!
The U.S. Senate passed a Coronavirus stimulus package by a 96-0 vote that may ease the pain of our nation’s economy during this frightening pandemic. Bipartisan concessions were made in a usually divided Senate chamber, including the unfettered disbursement of billions of dollars to corporations and provisions to disallow corporate stock buy-backs. Quite frankly, I find this refreshing as I’m sick of the classic corporate bail-outs and executive golden parachutes. I watched my retirement funds evaporate for the third time in 30 years, and at my age, I’m out of time to rebuild. Do I get a bailout?
I agree with the need to bolster the economy in the aftermath of massive unemployment and a plunging stock market during this global pandemic. What really makes me want to howl at the moon, however, are the idiotic Green New Deal initiatives the Democrats attempted to sneak into law during a time of real honest to goodness crisis.
All of this, my fellow Americans, is under the direction of America’s nemesis, liberal icon, and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D) CA. She’s a master a politician whose animus towards the 45th President, or for that matter any conservative, is fueled by a thirst to egomaniacally reign over both houses of Congress.
Besides force-feeding America the Green New Deal during a pandemic, of which Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R) KY would have no part, Pelosi secured her bribe in the Senate bill with a $25 million earmark for the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts (of which she is an ex-officio trustee.) To McConnell’s credit, he called her out for an array of liberal gems delivered by her spineless bagman, Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer, (D) NY, such as corporate diversification of boards if they take stimulus money, forgiving student loan debt, the lowering of airline emissions, and willy-nilly government investment in wind and solar energy. How will any of this help us during a global pandemic?
Pelosi’s demands sound as if she and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D) NY, did an all-nighter overdosing on Ritalin to come up with as many Green New Deal ideas they could sneak by, and threw in some of Barack Obama’s taxpayer waste reminiscent of his solar energy scam with big-bucks donor Solyndra. Pelosi presented all of this with the essence of the Obama legacy that really separated America – Identity politics.
Unfortunately, Americans now wait for a House version of a CoVID 19 stimulus package. Rest assured, it will be chock full of social gerrymandering and Green New Deal absurdity. Rep. Jerry Nadler (D) NY is already snorting at the trough for New York museums. Let’s not kid ourselves; What does any of the Green New Deal or museums for rich people have to do with our government coming to the aid of the people during a global pandemic? Am I missing something?
I am not naïve about the sausage factory involving our legislative process, but this is a time when we face one of the worst crises in our lifetimes, NOT a time for pet pork projects, or to paraphrase the famous Pelosi words: Let’s pass the bill and then let’s see what’s in it.
Political wheeling-and-dealing in a time of crisis infuriates this reasonable 64-year-old man to a point where I begin to understand our founding fathers’ reasoning behind the Second Amendment, where taking arms against corrupt politicians is a Constitutional right. Is this why Pelosi is so anti-gun?
Take a breath. I am not a madman condoning the removal of any politician or person by means of violence. I prefer and choose justice through due process – something Democrats have recently forgotten – twice.
Moreover, Pelosi believes that the radical left is her party’s and America’s future – and as much as I disagree with her, she has that unalienable right. But sneaking the Green New Deal agenda into law during a global crisis of this magnitude is significantly problematic behavior for the third most powerful elected official in our nation. For Pelosi to use a crisis like the Coronavirus pandemic to cunningly secure funding for pet projects and attempt to pass this controversial ideology into law, clearly displays a deficiency of conscience and ethics. It is the reason for Congressional term limits and should make Americans take pause to see if she is guilty of high crimes and misdemeanors or treason. Sound familiar?
We all know that Pelosi will never be voted out of office by San Francisco’s leftist elite. The media will also carry her water. She’s their icon. Her expulsion as Speaker of the House hinges on American voters taking the majority away from Democrats in November – which at least diminishes her power. This is not enough! She’s already dragged this nation into the muck and continues on her merry way. She should be removed from office by the means she implemented in the most partisan fashion in American history against an elected President, in an election year, in an attempt to deny the people from making their choice at the ballot box. Impeaching Nancy Pelosi is an idea whose time has come.
