Posted on 08/01/2020 4:01:04 AM PDT by Kaslin
We are three months from the Presidential election, and the stakes for the future of America have never been higher.
The COVID-19 global pandemic knocked America's robust economy back on its heels. As states cautiously re-open, President Trump has been laser-focused on supporting small businesses and getting our nation to work. However, in Washington, D.C., with 51 million people out of work, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Democrats, and their connected cronies have abused SBA loans. They have snuck numerous provisions into emergency bills under the cover of COVID-19.
The most terrifying sign of Democrats' plans is their embracing the previously dismissed "Green New Deal," which was a radical environmental proposal from self-described socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Senator Ed Markey (D-MA). Rep. Jim Clyburn (D-SC), the third-ranking House Democrat, was too honest by admitting his party wants to use billions in COVD-19 rescue funds to "restructure things to fit our vision."
Democrats are showing their cards of enacting this left-wing dream legislation in pieces through the tax code. It is time to sound the alarm, and conservatives must carefully watch the latest developments.
Democrats are focused on tax-bills because they only take a simple 51-majority vote in the Senate, utilizing "budget reconciliation" rules. First, this was tried with the so-called "Moving Forward Act" a $1.5 trillion spending bill full of radical environmentalist plans. Also, there were additional disturbing provisions in the highway reauthorization pork-barrel bill, including green-tax credits, which extends and expands credits for wealthy homeowners with solar panels, storage devices, energy-efficient windows, and geothermal converters until 2025.
Once presented as "temporary" tax incentives, it is clear Democrats never want these green handouts to affluent taxpayers and highly-profitable renewable energy companies to end.
The truth is, America does not need new environmental regulation. We, along with other industrialized nations, can lower carbon emissions and still generate massive growth. Dozens of the world's largest companies have reduced carbon emissions by 12 percent, and major oil companies report their methane emissions have declined by 40 percent while oil production is steadily increasing. America needs free-market innovation, not manipulative tax code changes, and job-killing policies, especially during a pandemic!
As Ryan Ellis of the Center for a Free Economy correctly observes, as COVID-19-related legislation continues to be rushed through Congress this year, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and President Trump must stop all sneaky "Green New Deal" tax provisions.
We are not out of this pandemic, but the American people can overcome any obstacle. Using disaster and death to enact an extreme agenda must stop. Let's re-elect President Trump, make real progress on ending the pandemic, and get Americans back to work.
SUPERCRIMINALS using Covid-19 for more nefarious deeds. The good, the bad and the EVIL...SUPEREVIL. They’re UGLY too. LOOK at them.
I’ve been thinking this for weeks. They’ve gotten rid of the cruising industry, airline industry, road trips. Sounds like the GND to me.
How are the vehicles on the Washington Beltway going to be powered in the future AOC?
From FReeper Sioux-san on the Michigan state message board...
It seems lot of people here on FR believe the Official Covid19 Narrative as indicated by the number of new posts published daily that PUSH THE NARRATIVE by earnestly discussing Case counts up or down, Deaths up or down, on and on, inadvertently (I hope) pushing the rationale for Lockdown, Masks, Testing, and ultimately the getting the Jab. Some seem to believe that surely this will pass and if we are patient and even put on the mask, we will soon be allowed to get back to Normal (that is, no more SOE/EO for Lockdown and all the new rules of engagement now in play will all go away).
Clearly, Whitmers SOE/EO extensions are designed to keep us in turmoil until the November election, as has been discussed here in the Michigan forum. Swinging Michigan Blue is the Goal in 2020 if all the same big population states vote as they did in 2016, then only ONE more big state needs to be flipped to the Dems to get back the WH (Trump won Michigan & Wisconsin both with R-governors by a thread in 2016 and now both have Dem Govs). A simple matter of electoral votes. The Polls mean Nada due to the unscrupulous sampling. Thats why Joe reminded everybody that Gretch is still on his VP short list. So, if you dont like what Gretch is doing, just get out of Michigan, preferably before November. Tempting, but where to go to avoid this massive Bait & Switch crime against our Nation. What has voting for RINOs gotten us when they had the power? Texas? Florida? Both their R-Governors have rolled mightily on their citizens with others following suit. Maybe there are communities here in Michigan who are freedom-loving enough to declare their sovereign human rights to have a sanctuary county where Karens and State Tyrants are not welcome. If you know any such place, let me know by FRmail, seriously.
To those who believe St. FAuci, that Covid19 is some new virus from nature, found in a bat shishkabob eaten by a pig that mutated within months with HIV/fungal components glommed on to the host virus to infect humans and drop otherwise healthy people dead, I cant help you. No such thing appears in nature all by itself - it must be mutated/created in a lab and weaponized by humans to hurt humans. Fauci wont say that, but other scientists who used to work with him have said it at great personal risk. It is a matter of public record that Obama and FAuci collaborated with the Chicoms and WHO, providing several million dollars to upgrade the Wuhan Bio-Lab to the highest level, where CDC, WHO, and University scientists from America and elsewhere have traveled back and forth freely for years and will again once the Heat is off. Probably already is business as usual. BigPharma/Big Govt./Rockefeller Foundation/Gates pawns and parrots are running the Show pushing us into economic collapse and the Big Reset long planned by the true NWO Puppetmasters.
The Gretch is unfazed by any citizen pushback because she already knows the End Game - you can see it in her reptilian expression and hear it in her voice that she has no fear of failure. Meanwhile the transformational actions continue unabated to get most everyone primed for the Jab - the Naysayers will continue to be demonized as a danger to Society, which has been very effective so far. All that is left is to show that our trusted PResident sold us out as bad as any Judas... but at least he is against Abortion! Crikey. COVID-19 Testing, Reaching, And Contacting Everyone (TRACE) Act, will be signed by Trump to codify his Operation Warp Speed EO. He even said he is going to be the first, or the last, to take the Jab. What in blazes does that mean? Yeah, I want what youre getting, Mr. Trump (purified water).
Get right with Jesus, and Fear Not, as He is with you to protect you, but only if you want His protection - He forces nothing on anybody. I believe that with all my heart and soul. My prayer is for a Reprieve from Operation WArp Speed along with its main purpose to reset the World Economy by taking down America first. We have done nothing to deserve this reprieve from God, so His Will Be Done. All we can do is get our own selves in order and help whoever needs help to do the same.
They are sending more money for people sit at home n watch tv while people break their backs. And hosptals are free to tell employees how to be safe or get fired whether at home or work.
Has trump outspent obama yet?
More freedom lost under a Republican than any timexi can recall. Gorsch and the supremes just sealed the deal on impeachment for people who believe the words of Jesus.
The green new deal.. lol..
America has been transformed under trump to in home confinement. To wearing a wet and warm mask for the viruses to stay alive on.
We can’t go back. Freedom lost is never regained.
This masked confined country is finished. Over a virus we paid to be released.
