This is just further proof of how low down and despicable Pelosi and the democrats are and just one more reason to exclaim that the democrats don’t give a damn about American workers!
It seems not even a pandemic will deter them from advancing their America-last, leftist agenda.
Just try to get through this article without becoming infuriated. I dare you!
Please Mr. President – put America first and cancel this boondoggle!

Horowitz: With so many Americans hurting, Trump must cancel the H-1B visa lottery

Nothing demonstrates the darkness of the liberal agenda in the shutting down of America’s economy than the push for more foreign labor. If they are saying we need to spend trillions of dollars to help hurting Americans who are out of jobs, you’d think it would be a no-brainer to cancel foreign worker visas, not talk about increasing them. read more
Well, the democrats have shown once again just what underhanded and despicable sub-humans they really are.
For the longest time, conservatives and Republicans (not necessarily synonymous) have been telling all who will listen, that the democrats don’t care about you.
Their lust for power and control is absolute and they will try anything to obtain and then maintain it. And they don’t care who they injure to do so.
We’ve also been preaching about their ongoing mantra – “Never let a good crisis go to waste.”
We’ve seen these various “crisis” scenarios played out multiple times a year since Trump was elected.
In recent years, we’ve witnessed several so-called crises, but they’ve all been for one overarching purpose – to remove the president from office. The left’s derangement has caused them to concentrate on this one man.
But this time it’s different. This time it’s not all about Trump. This crisis has brought them, they believe, a golden, possibly once in a generation opportunity to force the entire nation further left – further toward a socialist/communist State. read more
Horowitz: The key bad assumption in the bipartisan panic pander bill

How can Congress treat the fallout of a problem it has failed to define and whose solutions are helping to drive the problem? What is the point of bankrupting our future for a stimulus when California is shutting down the entire state and the Trump administration is considering doing so for the entire nation? We are entitled to a robust debate and some answers.
Politicians and the media are telling the public to be prudent and not to panic, but everything they are saying and implementing is sowing panic, and they are now contemplating actions that reflect more of a bubonic plague dynamic. Their entire legislative approach is about feeding on panic and using the crisis to immediately implement socialism before we even know the scope of the problem and can more effectively target solutions. read more
There is no good news regarding the coronavirus outbreak. But as close as it gets to good news – if you owe the government money by way of a tax payment on April 15th, you have just been granted a reprieve of sorts.
You must still file by April 15th, but can defer any payment owed for up to 90 days. It’s no silver lining, but it’s as good as it gets these days.
from Business Insider:
The tax-filing deadline will remain April 15, but the IRS will waive penalties and interest on tax payments for 90 days
Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin announced on Tuesday that Americans who owe taxes can defer their payment for 90 days, interest and penalty free, up to $1 million.
It appears that the Republicans are showing their soft underside again. And it is also evident that very few of them have learned a thing from the last 3-1/2 years of the Trump presidency – namely how to fight back and do it publically without concern of voter “backlash.” Which of course never comes, as we’ve learned from the president.
Christopher Bedford at the Federalist writes that, beyond a bi-partisan agreement to provide free coronavirus testing, “Washington politicians appear poised to fail the country once again, agreeing Friday evening to a one-sided and partisan coronavirus bill disguised as compromise. It’s not a shock to any conservatives in Washington and probably isn’t surprising to Republican voters either. They’re used to betrayal.”
Oh, the Republicans always start out gangbusters, as they did this past Friday, proposing aid packages for struggling small businesses in the form of no-interest loans and a rollback of the payroll tax. Predictably, the dems did what they do – introduced a package of giveaways to extend the welfare state.
But as predictably as the Sun rising, the dems got virtually everything on their wish list and Republicans got bupkis. read more
I ask everyone to read this or any article on the proposed Trump Payroll tax cut with a large grain of salt. By that I mean you must read between the lines, as everyone has an agenda – good or bad.
The bottom line to consider is that a tax cut – any tax cut, is good for America and bad for government. It “allows” the people that pay the tax to keep more of their own money. This effectively shuts the government out of the equation, and they don’t like that. It’s why pundits, bureaucrats and politicians alike hate the idea.
They would much prefer to give “targeted” relief. This merely means that, as always, they will be the ones to pick the winners and losers.
A payroll tax cut positively affects both employees and employers. Many employers may even opt to add their portion of the cut to the employee’s salary, increasing take-home pay even more.
However, Trump wants to go even further by suggesting a suspension of all Payroll taxes for the balance of the year. This, I can assure you, will NEVER sell on Capital Hill.
All the government hacks in Washington understand something crucial that the general public likely does not. They understand that reinstituting this tax after people have gotten used to not paying it, would end in a citizen revolt. It’s why withholding was devised in the first place. What the public doesn’t see, won’t upset them.
But if they get a taste of reality – of an expanded paycheck, they’ll be hard-pressed to give it up.
After Coronavirus-Fueled Stock Market Drop, Trump Considers Payroll Tax Relief
Stocks are expected to rally today after a historic drop on Monday. Concerns over the price of oil (thanks to a price war between Russia and Saudi Arabia) and how the coronavirus will further affect the global economy sent shares tumbling by 2,013 points: the most significant point drop since Dow began recording stock averages in 1884. read more
Horowitz: Senate pushing bipartisan green energy social engineering bill

While there is no bipartisan clamor to use GOP Senate control to force votes on sanctuary cities, there is a rush to pass a bipartisan bill dumping more money into green energy programs. Some might have thought we were done with the green energy venture socialism after the Obama era of Solyndra scandals, but in Washington, both parties are addicted to corporate welfare. Hence the rush to pass S. 2657, the American Energy Innovation Act.
It’s hard to call this bill bipartisan, given that the lead GOP sponsor is Sen. Lisa Murkowski. Yet even after voting against Kavanaugh and flirting with support for impeachment, she seems to control the Senate floor agenda more than anyone pushing the Trump agenda on immigration. read more
Always wanted a home, but can’t afford one? Well it’s your lucky day. Just move to California, find a vacant house and squat in it. It doesn’t matter whether someone else “owns” it. If you want it, it’s apparently your “fundamental human right” to have it.
from the American Spectator:
Taking Property for Fun and Profit
Oakland rewards squatting while Los Angeles officials want to use eminent domain to seize apartments. Investors ought to run for the hills.
After a group of homeless moms simply moved into a vacant three-bedroom house in Oakland owned by a company that invests in local real estate, local progressives turned them into folk heroes. These women weren’t squatters who took something that wasn’t theirs, but valiant protesters who were standing up for their communities against — all together now — corporate speculators. read more
Regarding socialism, it wasn’t that long ago, only about 10 years, that Democrats were singing a different tune. In reaction to a 2009 Newsweek cover entitled, “We Are All Socialists Now,” then Rep. Carol Shea-Porter, D-N.H., at a town hall meeting in 2010, exclaimed, “I don’t think anybody in this country believes in socialism. I don’t know ’em, and I don’t hang out with ’em, but maybe you do.”
You can’t hardly say that anymore. Socialism/communism/leftism is on the rise, especially among younger voters. A Fox News poll from just a couple of weeks ago “finds 31 percent of voters view socialism favorably, up 6 percentage points since February (the first time the question was asked).”
This is lunacy, of course. But the poll is likely fairly accurate. So what can be done?
In the past, I and many other conservatives have insisted that we on the right must educate the electorate. But this requires us to hold their attention long enough to do so.
Sadly, that’s getting increasingly difficult. So what’s the alternative? Conservatism isn’t really conducive to sound bites and slogans. read more
