Democrats Create Committee To Scrutinize Trump’s Response to Coronavirus

Democrats have created a new House committee designed to scrutinize and review the Trump administration’s response to the coronavirus outbreak.

Committee Will “Examine All Aspects of the Federal Response” to Coronavirus

Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced the coronavirus committee on Thursday. They will investigate the management of the bailout package to help coronavirus victims (which amounts of over $2 trillion of government spending), and the general response from the White House, President Trump and his administration to the pandemic.

The panel, which will be chaired by James Clyburn, the Democrat House Majority Whip, will “examine all aspects of the federal response to the coronavirus and ensure the taxpayer’s dollars are being wisely and efficiently spent,” Pelosi told reporters. “The panel will root out waste, fraud, and abuse; it will protect against price-gauging, profiteering, and political favoritism,” she continued, saying that the country needed “transparency and accountability” in managing the outbreak and the funds. “Where there’s money there’s also frequently mischief.”

Schiff Demands 9/11 Style “Nonpartisan Commission”

It follows an announcement on Wednesday. from Representative Adam Schiff to set up a 9/11-style “nonpartisan commission” to investigate the administration’s response to coronavirus.

“After Pearl Harbor and 9/11, we looked at what went wrong to learn from our mistakes,” Schiff tweeted. “Once we’ve recovered, we need a nonpartisan commission to review our response and how we can better prepare for the next pandemic. I’m working on a bill to do that.”

We all know where this is going. Does anyone think the Democrats won’t simply use both the commission and the committee to attack the President for doing all he can to slow the outbreak of the Chinese coronavirus? Just like impeachment, this is going to end up as a partisan attack on the President, most likely led by Pelosi, Schumer, and Schiff – all working together to batter the deaths of American citizens over the head of President Trump for political pointscoring.

Dr. Fauci: President Trump’s Travel Ban Is What May Save This Country From Becoming Italy

Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, claimed in an interview Sunday that President Trump’s travel ban may be a key to America not getting hit as hard by the coronavirus crisis as other nations.

Never forget that while congressional Democrats were singularly focused on impeaching the President in late January as news of the coronavirus spread, Trump was implementing a crucial travel ban blocking visitors from China, the source of the deadly contagion.

This, Fauci believes, may prove critical in keeping America from going down the path of Italy, which has the highest number of cases and deaths resulting from coronavirus in the world.

Praise for the President

Fauci, in a segment with CBS’ “Face the Nation,” expressed optimism that the United States will “not necessarily at all” end up like Italy.

Why? Because of that travel ban Democrats tried to portray as a racist move by the President.

“Early on they [Italy] did not shut out as well the input of infections that originated in China and came to different parts of the world,” the renowned physician who has worked with six different administrations explained.

“One of the things that we did very early and very aggressively, the president put the travel restriction coming from China to the United States and most recently from Europe to the United States because Europe is really the new China,” Fauci continued.

Preventing an Influx

Dr. Fauci went on to explain that the ‘social distancing’ efforts touted by the White House and the restrictions on travel were key to keeping the coronavirus relatively at bay.

“The kinds of mitigation issues that are going on right now, the things that we’re seeing in this country, this physical separation at the same time as we’re preventing an influx of cases coming in,” said Fauci, “I think that’s going to go a long way to preventing us from becoming another Italy.”

It’s a testament to the President’s leadership that he implemented such a travel ban within days of the outbreak spreading, even in the face of impeachment. Even knowing the Democrats would label him a racist for doing so.

Democrats Wanted to Ban the Ban

Despite an unparalleled expert in the field praising the travel ban, Democrats just two weeks ago were actively pushing to end the President’s authority to implement new restrictions.

Rep. Judy Chu (D-CA) alleged such bans “hurt families and hurt our national security, and we must stop this president from overextending his authority and banning people from entire countries.”

“This is no time for Donald Trump’s record of hysteria and xenophobia — hysterical xenophobia — and fearmongering,” Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden said the day after Trump’s travel restrictions were imposed.

The resistance party’s reckless partisan politics are an attempt to smear President Trump and will end up costing people their lives.

Americans Are Rallying Around the President: Approval Rating On Coronavirus Handling Skyrockets

The American people are voicing their approval of how President Trump is handling the coronavirus crisis, with a new poll showing his approval ratings skyrocketing.

In the span of just one week, the President turned his negative approval ratings in dealing with the pandemic completely around.

According to a new ABC News/Ipsos poll released on Friday, 55 percent of Americans approve of the President’s management of the coronavirus problem, while just 43 percent disapprove.

These numbers mark a nearly exact reversal of results from one week earlier.

What Changed

We would argue that it occasionally takes time for the truth to come out in the United States when the entire media complex is hell-bent on destroying the President.

Yes, Trump did try to quell panic by downplaying the threat early on. But as any good President does, he evolved on the matter. Remember when Barack Obama was hailed as a hero for ‘evolving’ on things?

The President quickly – faster than any Democrat who was more focused on impeachment – buckled down and got to work trying to solve this crisis.

“Over the course of a week, the president has shifted his approach and tone, giving daily briefings on the crisis since Saturday, alongside the White House task force leading the response to the coronavirus and announcing some severe measures to combat the virus,” ABC News reported.

“He’s also taken on a more somber tone, saying of his own tenor ‘people actually liked it’ as the reality of the scale of the virus set in.”

Democrats Support Trump

Here’s where things get a little shocking – Despite every attempt by prominent resistance lawmakers to paint Trump as a racist for calling the pandemic a “Chinese virus,” Democrat voters’ support for the President has doubled.

“30 percent of Democrats approve, which is about double the number from last week’s poll, and 69 percent disapprove, down from 86 percent,” reports ABC News. “Meanwhile, an overwhelming 92 percent of Republicans approve, up from 86 percent last week.”

President Trump recently signed the Families First Coronavirus Response Act which will provide economic assistance to America’s businesses and workers.

At the same time, FDA Commissioner Dr. Stephen Hahn noted the “record time” it’s taking to pursue a coronavirus vaccine due to an “impressive public-private partnership,” something the President has been advocating.

Near-Universal Praise

You know the tide has to be turning on public opinion when even Rep. Ilhan Omar, a Trump-hater to the extreme, is praising the President for an “incredible” and “right response” to the coronavirus crisis.

“[Ayanna Pressley] always says, unprecedented times require unprecedented leadership and we are seeing that in our country right now,” Omar wrote.

Ronny Jackson, the former lead White House doctor appointed by Barack Obama, praised President Trump saying his ‘quick and decisive’ actions have saved “countless American lives.”

Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, provided positive feedback on the President’s quick action in implementing necessary travel bans.

President Trump has reminded the American people that “nothing will stand in our way as we pursue any avenue to find what best works against this horrible virus.”

That is the kind of leadership we need right now.

Bette Midler Blasts Trump for Mocking the Oscars: ‘I’m More Upset That a Parasite Won the White House’

By PoliZette Staff | February 22, 2020

Hollywood star Bette Midler, who seems to bash President Donald Trump on a daily basis, just went after him once again on social media, this time for his comments mocking the Academy Awards.

During a rally in Colorado on Thursday, Trump slammed the fact that the foreign film “Parasite” won Best Picture at the Oscars earlier this month.

“The winner is a movie from South Korea. What the hell was that all about? We’ve got enough problems with South Korea, with trade,” Trump said. “And after all that, they give them best movie of the year?”

“Parasite” was the first foreign film to ever win Best Picture at the Oscars, and it also won awards for directing and original screenplay, according to Fox News. Midler took to her own Twitter page to make it clear that she was livid about Trump’s remarks.

“At his rally, #Trump complained about #Parasite winning the Oscar,” Midler tweeted. “I’m more upset that a parasite won the White House.”

Unfortunately for Midler, however, her tweet backfired on her when social media users used it to go after Barack Obama.

Thank goodness that parasite Barack Obama is gone!” one user wrote, with another adding, “Me too. I still can’t believe we had a parasite in the WH. 8 years of Obama was too much.”

During the same rally, Trump also went after Brad Pitt, who won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his work in “Once Upon A Time In Hollywood.” While accepting his award, Pitt used his speech to attack Republicans who shut down Democrats’ attempts to call more witnesses in the Trump Senate impeachment trial.

“They told me I only have 45 seconds up here, which is 45 seconds more than the Senate gave John Bolton this week,” Pitt said. “I’m thinking maybe Quentin [Tarantino] does a movie about it. In the end, the adults do the right thing.”

Trump had some choice words for Pitt over these comments.

“And then you have Brad Pitt, I was never a big fan of his,” Trump said. “He got up, said a little wise guy thing. He’s a little wise guy.”

Hollywood stars like Midler and Pitt don’t realize that when they go after Trump, they’re just making themselves look like out of touch liberal elitists who have no idea what they’re talking about. Trump did not become president to help wealthy liberals like them. Instead, he became president to help average working Americans who have been cast aside by Democrats.

Trump should know that if Midler and the rest of Hollywood keep bashing him, he’s just doing something right!

John Bolton Speaks Out, Blasts Democrats’ Impeachment Of Trump As ‘Grossly Partisan’

Former National Security Adviser John Bolton finally spoke out this week, slamming Democrats for their “grossly partisan” impeachment effort against President Donald Trump.

During a public appearance alongside Susan Rice, who had his same role in Barack Obama’s White House, Bolton said that his own testimony would not have changed the entire outcome of the Senate impeachment trial, according to the Associated Press. Despite what Democrats who wanted him to testify said, Bolton does not believe his testimony would have made a difference in the final impeachment vote.

“People can argue about what I should have said and what I should have done,” Bolton said. “I would bet you a dollar right here and now, my testimony would have made no difference to the ultimate outcome.”

He also said that the way Democrats handled the impeachment trial “drove Republicans who might have voted for impeachment away because it was so partisan.”

Rice disagreed with him, saying that nothing could have led her “to refuse to share information with Congress or the public that I thought was of national import.

“I can’t imagine withholding my testimony, with or without a subpoena,” she said. “I also can’t imagine, frankly, in the absence of being able to provide that information directly to Congress, not having exercised my First Amendment right to speak publicly at a time when my testimony or my experience would be relevant.”

Bolton, however, stood his ground, saying that the reason he didn’t “spill his guts” about Trump’s business dealings with Ukraine was that doing so would have led to him being prosecuted criminally. When asked if he would have complied with a subpoena from the White House, Bolton brought up the White House review process that is determining whether the contents of his upcoming book about working in the Trump administration can be disclosed.

“I’m not here to speculate on that with the pre-publication review process under way,” Bolton said as the audience laughed. “Laugh all you want. This is the judgment of my counsel, somebody I worked with 35 years ago, 30 years ago at the Department of Justice.”

Bolton is correct that his testimony would not have changed anything because it was clear from the get-go that the Senate would be voting along party lines. The only senator to break from his party was Mitt Romney (R-UT) who had his own personal vendetta against Trump. No other senators were swayed by the Democrats’ nonsense, as they saw right through their partisan effort. Nothing Bolton could say or not say would have had any impact on this.

Chris Matthews Frets: If Bernie Wins the Nomination ‘We’ll Lose 49 States’

MSNBC host Chris Matthews is sounding the alarm suggesting that if the Democrat party goes all-in on radical socialist, Bernie Sanders, President Trump will wipe the floor with them on Election Day.

In discussing how the other candidates have withheld their fire against Sanders and his radical policies, Matthews predicted the ultimate outcome would be Trump winning 49 of 50 states. Or is it 57, Barack?

“They’re [other candidates] just pandering to the Bernie people and you know what pandering gets you? Nothing,” the MSNBC host complained. “It certainly doesn’t get you respect.”

“They’ve got to get out there and say I disagree with socialism; I believe in the markets; I think he’s wrong,” Matthews continued. “I think you’ll never get it done and this country will never go that direction, by the way we’ll lose forty-nine states.”

Safe to say, Chris has no thrill going up his leg for Bernie’s socialist candidacy.

Let’s Analyze Those Comments

There is a lot to unpack in Matthews’ comments, not the least of which is how his prediction will probably come true. We’ll get to that in a minute, however.

Let’s begin with how the MSNBC host, who wants to convince viewers that he and his network are not an arm of the Democrat party, framed the comment.

We’ll lose forty-nine states.”

Why would he consider that a personal loss? A rhetorical question, of course.

Also worth considering, Mr. Matthews, is the possibility that Democrats aren’t exclusively pandering to Bernie’s people. Perhaps they have conformed to the extreme elements of the fringe left and are supportive of his socialist policies and platforms.

It’s not exactly a far-fetched notion for a party that has conformed to Bernie’s acolytes on impeachment hoaxes and theatrics from top to bottom.

He’s Right

Now back to our initial analysis – that Matthews may very well be right when he says the Democrats will suffer incalculable electoral losses on Election Day.

A new ABC/Washington Post poll shows the socialist curmudgeon dominating the field while more palatable choices amongst party moderates are plummeting.

And while Bernie-mania and his dreams of American socialism are popular amongst the extreme left, it remains extremely unpopular to the rest of America.

new poll found only 28% of Americans have a favorable view of socialism, while 58% have an unfavorable impression.

The National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) believes Sanders’ name on the Democrat ticket will result in overwhelming losses for the party in November. Perhaps enough that the House could be flipped.

“Bernie Sanders and House Democrats’ socialist agenda will put an end to Nancy Pelosi’s unsuccessful second stint as Speaker,” NRCC Spokesman Michael McAdams said in a statement.
