Wuhan virus, Pelosi and rich donors … Hidden among the pork guarded by anti-Americans Pelosi, Schumer, Schiff and the rest of the Democrat political Mafia destroyers, was the outrageous insistence on $25 million to the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. Not to become too cynical about the whole mess, but the very first thing the Kennedy Center management did with the loot, was to fire the entire orchestra, and promptly give back $5 million of the 25 to the DNC political coffers.
In anybody’s language that’s called a ‘kick-back’ (quid pro quo, even!) and consequently Pelosi and her malevolent cohorts should be arrested and the Kennedy Center shuttered. Yet We the (63 million) People know better, that indeed, nothing of the sort will occur.
To put a bit of perspective into play … President Trump closes the border with China January 28th. ‘Tide Pod’ Pelosi appears on TV imploring people to come to her home SanFranNan’s Chinatown for dinner.
President Trump talks about the Coronavirus at SOTU address on February 4th, in response to which ‘Tide Pod’ Pelosi morphs into a five-year-old temper-tantrum and goes on a tearing stunt, ripping apart in full view of the world, her copy of the president’s address.
Then on Feb 29th first death by Coronavirus recorded in America results in Democrats screaming ‘Trump is a racist’. Democrats are like Biden who painfully and mumblingly represents them – wrong on every issue.
Pelosi, Schumer, Schiff, etal and their political correctness is like a religious movement where everyone tends to become more politically correct to signal their belief/identity. The goalpost of political correctness shifts to extremism because its behavior is without rational goals.There now seems to be a Corona correctness where disease-fighting signaling behavior is increasingly more irrational and departing from reality. ‘Germaphobes’ determine correct behavior while ‘Covidiot-19s’ are attacked like racists.
That to yours truly appears to be what the main intention of the current stimulus is, yet the proverbial bull in the china shop is somewhat intent on wrecking the store.
Willis L. Krumholz, the Federalist: ‘Pelosi’s Wuhan Virus Priority is to Give Money to her Rich Donors’…
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., has political priorities. During negotiations over the three Wuhan coronavirus stimulus bills, Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., tried to include loans for abortion providers, as well as a bailout of the Obamacare exchanges that would end up funding abortion.
That led to some bad PR for Pelosi, but the House speaker may be a glutton for punishment. If there’s one thing Democrats are beholden to more than the abortion lobby, it’s the rich people in blue states who fund their campaigns.
How’s this? Pelosi just told reporters that one of her top priorities for a fourth stimulus bill — which may or may not be passed, since Congress has already passed three bills and spent more than $2 trillion — is a removal of the current cap on the state and local tax deduction, or SALT. [-]
[+] … Democrats didn’t dream this up yesterday, either. It has nothing to do with the Wuhan coronavirus. Democrats have been pushing for an end to the SALT cap ever since the GOP passed it in 2017. Here’s the New York Times: “In the 2018 midterm elections, Democrats wielded the SALT limits in House campaigns against Republicans in wealthy blue-state suburbs of cities like New York, Los Angeles and Chicago. Democrats voted last year to repeal the cap, but the effort died in the Republican-controlled Senate.” [-]
[+] … When Democrats voted to repeal the SALT cap in the House last year, on mostly party lines, they were even willing to “frontload” the bill to immediately cut the taxes of the blue-state wealthy by raising taxes for everyone else — including working Americans — at a later date. Earlier, they were so desperate to get rid of the SALT cap, they even funded a lawsuit to try to overturn the law in the courts. [-]
[+] … Democrats tell us normal people they don’t like how far corporate taxes were cut. That may be fair. But behind the scenes, congressional Democrats’ main priority is bringing back a big tax loophole for rich people in high-tax blue states: their donors. You can’t make this stuff up. Democrats are no longer the party of the little guy, and haven’t been for a very long time. [end]

When there’s value to be had, and as long as people can ride out the volatility, they generally take the risk. Maybe a touch smarter than before, but without wholesale changes to the underlying infrastructure. It’s always been government action, not the pandemic du jour, that is the root cause of so much damage to small business for instance. There are always sectors in the economy where government action can generate large risk factors in normal times, wherein the government should indemnify individuals and businesses for losses that the government itself caused.
While she rails about tax cuts for millionaires and billionaires Pelosi (and throw in there Schumer, Schiff, Nadler and the rest of the Clinton/#44 cabal) is forever lining up policies that favor her tax exposure and the exposure of other millionaires and billionaires. Hypocrisy is the underlying feature of Democrat ideology, running a close third to corruption and treason.
And on that note, time for today’s MAGA Pill – President Donald J. Trump – MAGA! KAG!
