U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is living up to the traditional Democrat mantra of never letting a crisis go to waste when it comes to essentially pushing for more socialism.
In yesterday’s Trump-bashing, GOP-bashing press conference – during which she somewhat incoherently promoted an additional, hyper-partisan spending bill under the fear-mongering guise of coronavirus relief – the San Francisco Democrat revealed the left’s standard agenda:
“There’s a drumbeat that says we need to do more… My interest is with the message to the American people send the Republicans in the Senate. We cannot take a pause. He has to end death and dying. We have to open the economy. We have to do so in a way that gives more opportunity for access to care, to credit, to opportunity in our country, because as Mr. Clyburn said, this is an opportunity. Every crisis is.”
U.S. Rep. James Clyburn (D-S.C.) is one of Pelosi’s chief lieutenants.
The opportunity she actually has in mind is to make more Americans dependent on government handouts rather than getting back to work as well as filling the coffers for certain Democrat constituencies. In other words, let the country go to waste rather than wasting a crisis for far-left opportunism.
Pelosi, a multi-millionaire who lives in a big mansion, represents a city where homelessness, drug abuse, and crime run rampant and with no end in sight. Pelosi was first elected to Congress way back in 1987.
In their legislative efforts, Democrats continue to push for vote-fraud-by-mail and ballot harvesting, which — among other things– caused the Republicans to lose House seats in Orange County, Calif. that they were leading on election night in 2018.
The Democrats have also implemented ballot harvesting within the House of Representatives in the form of unconstitutional proxy voting. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy has gone to federal court to challenge the proxy voting system which he says breaks 230 years of precedent.
In the same press conference, Pelosi claimed that she supported reopening the economy but accused President Trump of being on an ego trip in his desire to hold an in-person presidential nominating convention.
“We all want the country to open up. But science tells us there is a path, a healthy path, to open up in a healthy way. And that path is testing, tracing, treatment, and isolation, if necessary… The number of people who should be in church, the number of people who should be at any gathering, those are determinations that are made locally, and I respect that as we unfold this opening. I don’t think there is anyone who would say at this point that tens of thousands of people should come together for a political convention, no matter how great an ego trip it is for somebody. It’s dangerous for so many.”
The last thing that the left wants is for the Trump campaign to get lots of prime-time mainstream media coverage in August. Moreover, if the Democrats thought Sleepy Joe Biden was a viable candidate, they’d be all for holding a big coronation ceremony rather than keeping him sequestered in his Delaware basement.
In the meantime, Trump has threatened to pull the GOP convention from Charlotte, N.C., unless Democrat Gov. Roy Cooper eases the lockdown there. It would hardly be surprising if Democrats try to pull the rug out from under the Republican Party party even though the event would provide a significant boost to the state’s economy.
