Pelosi Suffers Massive Political Hit – Abandons House Scheme – Announces Acceptance of Senate Bill…

You can tell when Speaker Pelosi recognizes a political backlash for her manipulative schemes because it’s the only time she blitzes the media. After suffering a very large political hit, beyond the capability of the media to defend, Pelosi said today the House will take up the Senate coronavirus bill.

The writing was on the wall late yesterday as people started digging into the 1,400 page House proposal and exposing all of the far-left ideological efforts within it. Billions were earmarked for nonsense progressive projects and the House scheme was fraught with social engineering that had nothing to do with assisting workers and businesses.

Even Pelosi’s own party started telling leadership they had gone way too far with the assembled list of nonsense legislation. The speaker recognized if she did not quickly make a tactical retreat her party would be crushed by exposure of the brazen politics they were attempting. The reach was so extreme, the media could not protect her.

In an effort to save a horrid face, the speaker was forced to blitz the media alone while all other house members watched to see how she could recover. Whenever Pelosi stands alone, that’s the “tell” for the size of the political miscalculation.  Pelosi announced she was abandoning plans for the 1,400 page House scheme. Now the senate work continues…

WASHINGTON DC – Congressional negotiators signaled Tuesday they are likely hours away from clinching a bipartisan agreement on a nearly $2 trillion emergency stimulus package — capping five days of frenetic talks over a response to the coronavirus pandemic.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin are expected to announce an agreement later Tuesday, under immense pressure from President Donald Trump, a dire economic outlook and the growing number of Americans losing their livelihoods amid the crisis.

The Senate’s lead negotiators — Mnuchin, Schumer, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and White House legislative affairs director Eric Ueland — have spent most of Tuesday huddling behind closed doors as they finalized policy details and legislative text. If those last-minute talks are successful, lawmakers say they could vote within hours.

“The timeline is as soon as possible,” Ueland said leaving a more than hourlong meeting with McConnell, Mnuchin and a half-dozen GOP senators who have been heavily involved in the rescue package.

“We’re trying to finalize all the documents, going through a lot of complicated issues, and we’re making a lot of progress,” Mnuchin said, flanked by Rep. Mark Meadows, who was recently tapped as Trump’s next chief of staff.

Schumer took to the Senate floor on Tuesday to declare that senators were “on the 2-yard line” and said there were no remaining disagreements that couldn’t be resolved over the next few hours. (read more)

        The house bill was full of the “green new deal” UN 2030 plans! This is what the man made virus was all about— to see if they could actually shut down the govt, scare people and pass their Socialist bill and takeover! The President voiced this in an interview. He said the House bill was full of the Green New Deal legislation and he wasn’t going to sign something like that! The UN is already in my community— signed up by our city council members to receive grants from HUD to rebuild our Hurricane Harvey torn town! I doubt they knew what they were signing.
        I checked to see if other areas of my state had the same UN plan( Sustainable Development) as our town now has. I discovered they are just about in every town in my state! The APA (The American Planning Association) is part of the UN and comes to town to make plans for carrying out the UN plans for the use of bikes, new zoning laws, plans to build “Stack n Pack apartments, install smart meters for controlling our utilities etc.and the eventual elimination of our cars. See info about UN Agenda 2030 and their plan to take away private property and the above already mentioned. etc. You can go to the website The American Policy Association where they are fighting against the UN and their plans! This is Tom DeWeese’s website and he is the person who has been fighting against the UN plans for many, many years! Remember his website is not the as the other mentioned. So don’t be confused. Thx.

    To me, it appears Pelosi just tried to throw the entire Demrat platform for the 2020 election into this bill and get the funding for it to boot.
    For her to fold her cards now is MASSIVE and its about time. I can’t even imagine how the people in the House are reacting to her these days. Pelosi dissed all members by not even bringing up impeachment for a vote with them. And now this bill? She has put a SHAME on all associated with her. Greed (Envy) and Fame.(Pride). Sins under your professed religion dear Ms.Pelosi. When’s the last time you went to confession

    Pelosi’s Coronavirus Plan: Up to $1,000,000,000 for Sanctuary Cities

    By Joh Binder, Breitbart, March 24, 2020:

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) latest coronavirus plan includes a provision that forces American taxpayers to provide up to $1 billion in Justice Department grant funding to sanctuary cities that shield criminal illegal aliens from arrest and deportation.

    On Tuesday, Pelosi released a revised version of House Democrats’ plan in the midst of the coronavirus, which includes:

    A nationwide mandate for ballot harvesting
    $300 million for foreign refugees abroad
    An automatic visa extension for all foreign workers
    An expansion of foreign-language ballots
    Same-day voter registration for the 2020 presidential election
    An amnesty for nearly 800,000 DACA illegal aliens

    Pelosi’s plan also includes forcing American taxpayers to provide federal grant funding to sanctuary jurisdictions that refuse to turn over criminal illegal aliens to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents for arrest and deportation.

    The provision states:

    $1 billion [in Byrne Justice Assistance Grants] to help prevent, prepare for, and respond to coronavirus, including for purchasing personal protective equipment. Funds are to be distributed under the same requirements, conditions, compliance, and certification as 2016, thus preventing DOJ from blocking any of these funds from going to sanctuary jurisdictions. [Emphasis added]

    Pelosi’s plan reverses former Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ implementation of Justice Department policy that cuts federal grant funding to sanctuary jurisdictions such as the sanctuary states of California, New York, Illinois, and New Jersey.

    The reversal slipped into the coronavirus plan comes just a month after the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit ruled that the Trump administration has the authority to withhold federal grant money from sanctuary jurisdictions due to their failure to meet federal requirements that include abiding by federal immigration law.

    The nation’s largest sanctuary jurisdictions – Los Angeles County, California and New York City, New York – release thousands of criminal illegal aliens every year. In 2018, New York City officials released close to 3,000 criminal illegal aliens back into communities. Meanwhile, Los Angeles County officials release up to 100 criminal illegal aliens every day.

      And
      Diversity provisions
      The House Democrats’ bill requires that any company getting coronavirus-related aid disclose its diversity stats, including its employees’ race, gender, pay, corporate board diversity and the structure of its offices that deal with diversity and inclusion.

      The reports, which will be made public within a year of the companies accepting federal coronavirus-related assistance, will also include the “number and dollar value invested with minority-and-women owned suppliers … including professional services (legal and consulting) and asset managers, and deposits and other accounts with minority depository institutions, as compared to all vendor investments.”

      Post Office bailout
      One section of the bill would eliminate $11 billion worth of debt for the U.S. Postal Service — money that it currently owes to the Treasury Department. It would also require the Treasury to “eliminate the $3 billion annual borrowing limit in current law,” according to a summary of the bill released by House Democrats.

      Union boosting
      In addition to requiring each airline that receives money through the bill to have a union representative on its board, the House Democrats’ summary says the bill would nullify a variety of executive orders issued by the Trump administration on collective bargaining.

      Environmental provisions
      Any airlines that accept assistance from the House Democrats’ bill would be forced to “offset their carbon emissions and reduce their overall emissions by 50 percent by 2050.” That matches with environmental plans from Democratic presidential candidates Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders to have the U.S. reach net-zero carbon emissions by 2050.

      The House bill would also expand an FAA program that incentivizes airports to purchase environmentally friendly equipment and create a “cash for clunkers” program — similar to one created by the Obama administration for cars — but for older airplanes.

      Additionally, it will provide $1.2 billion in grants over five years for the production of “sustainable aviation fuels” that reduce greenhouse gas emissions by “at least 30 percent” compared to traditional jet fuel.

      Obamaphones

      One section of Pelosi’s bill allocates $1 billion and calls for federal authorities to immediately expand the “emergency lifeline broadband benefit” for every household that contains at least one “qualifying low-income consumer.” That would include any “mass-market retail service by wire or radio that provides the capability to transmit data to and receive data from all or substantially all Internet endpoints, including any capabilities that are incidental to and enable the operation of the communications service.”

      That benefit would include cell phones.

      The National Republican Congressional Committee said the House bill is “full of unrelated liberal goodies, including the return of the Obamaphone,” a program that the Government Accountability Office found was “rife with fraud” according to a Washington Times report at the time.
      ——-
      Newspaper retirement plans
      House Democrats’ plan, according to its summary, expands a recent law that provides “pension funding relief for a number of community newspaper plan sponsors.”
      —–

      $15 minimum wage for companies accepting assistance
      Two different sections in the House Democrats’ summary of the bill address minimum wage. One provision would “require corporations that receive any federal assistance” to pay all of its workers at least $15 per hour. In addition to the minimum wage, that same provision includes a ban on golden parachutes, restricted bonuses and compensation for executives, a ban on stock buybacks and a ban on companies changing their collective bargaining agreements.
      ——-

      Kennedy Center
      The House Democrats’ bill provides $35 million to ensure that the D.C.-based John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts is able to remain operational and pay its expenses during the coronavirus-related economic slowdown.

      The next page of the bill indicates that $300 million would be allotted for the National Endowment of the Arts with an additional $300 million for the National Endowment of the Humanities.
      ——

      Voter registration

      The House Democrats’ bill has a variety of election-related mandates, including that states allow at least 15 days of early voting for elections and no-excuse absentee mail-in voting — two things that could be useful in holding elections during the continuing coronavirus threat.

      But is also prohibits states from “imposing additional conditions or requirements on the eligibility of a voter to cast an absentee ballot such as notarization or witness signatures, and prohibits requiring identification to obtain an absentee ballot.”

      It also forces states to allow same-day voter registration, a practice that is becoming more common throughout the U.S. but is far from universal,
      ————–

      Student loans

      Democrats’ summary of their bill would eliminate “a minimum of $10,000 of federal and private student loan debt for each indebted borrower.” Student loan forgiveness has been a go-to issue for Democrats in Congress and on the presidential campaign trail.
