MUST WATCH – Tom Cotton Outlines Nancy Pelosi Emergency Relief Scheme…

There are many people, many voters, simply stunned at how the Democrats are trying to use the COVID-19 economic emergency to add unrelated ideological elements to the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act.

Senator Tom Cotton walks through some of the items the Democrats are demanding before they will allow economic relief to U.S. companies and workers. MUST WATCH:

    On Tucker Carlson’s show tonight, both doctors, one from the FDA and the second one is FOX news contributor Mark Seagal, call Hydroxychloroquine as a Anti-Malaria drug. Why didn’t they mention that the drug can also be used to treat Rheumatoid Arthritis by modulating immune system response. People infected with COVID19 go through severe cytokine storm that actually kills them. It’s quite dishonest of them not mentioning it. It could be COVID19 sufferers have autoimmune issues to begin with before being infected with COVID19, that is why the drug is effective?! Autoimmune issues are huge in our country and the world and it’s a huge money maker. These 2 doctors should be ashamed of themselves!

      Unfortunately Tucker seems to have gone off the sanity cliff on this issue as he has bought into the fear mongering and is avoiding any discussion of near-term hope or relief.

      Must be taking orders from Paul Ryan and the other NeverTrumpers managing Fox.

      Because the drug was orginally FDA licensed for use in the treatment of malaria. Also, if you don’t think that everyone in the US doesn’t know by now about the potential of hydroxycholorquine and the treatment of COVID-19 infection then you’re living on Mars. The only issue at this point is that since the FDA licensing guidelines/regulations have been been modified and shortened to allow this drug to be utilized ASAP there are possibly some minor concerns regarding overall effectiveness, additional side effects and liability issues.

        Dan Bongino has shared that his wife has been on this drug forever, so they know a lot about it.

        He has also made a great point about the FDA that I’ve heard on and off for years, but is worth repeating now:

        It makes sense for a government agency to test the safety of a drug. Public health is a reasonable function of government. If it makes people sick or kills them, we need to know.

        It does not make sense for them to rule on the effectiveness of a drug. That decision should be in the hands of doctors and their patients. In the case of charlatans claiming things work that don’t – the market will sort that out, always has.

        And yes, agree with DWC, everybody except hermits in caves now knows about this drug and is probably trying to get it. That’s a different issue that I am sure PDJT is already a month ahead on…

They are no longer our fellow citizens and deserve not the slightest bit of sympathy or aid. If President Trump sent the U.S. Marshals to arrest and indefinitely detain malig-Nancy and Upchuck, I’d cheer. I’d cheer louder if both of them received a good wooden shampoo for resisting arrest. They are not just enemies to this nation, they are traitors. They deserve every last bit of the opprobrium and obloquy all such people merit. Benedict Arnold was a great American patriot and hero by comparison to those two.

        I for one am glad schools are closed. The less indoctrination of leftwing garbage on kids the better. Although I think teachers who are simply home should get a break from getting paid with our tax dollars.

        Would love to save some money in taxes in order to help the poor (which I do anyway, but lower taxes would help me help others), or some charity that helps victims of this horrible virus. Teachers get paid year round. Not expecting them to be income free, but those who are highly paid could take a pay cut to help victims at the very least. Since the Dems don’t care about health victims these days.

    What we have with regard to the senate bill, is a war to seize the narrative. Dems usually win at this due to media assistance, which is why they seem to win these skirmishes so often. But the GOP is getting its message out that the hold up is the fault of the dems more quickly and effectively than usual. Do what you can do help seize the narrative. Post on other forums, twitter, facebook, etc; tell folks to call their dem senators and ask a simple question. “Why is Senator X letting my family lose our life savings and our jobs over jet fuel and ballot harvesting? Why is that more important to Senator X than our lives?” Then just hang up. Thousands of calls like these will weaken the resolve of the more marginal dem senators such as Manchin and the like.

    2. Bailing out all current debt of postal service

    3. Required early voting

    4. Required same day voter registration

    7. Provisions on official time for union collective bargaining

    8. Full offset of airline emissions by 2025

    9. Greenhouse gas statistics for individual flights
