No matter what President Donald Trump does or doesn’t do in response to the Wuhan coronavirus, the mainstream media loves to complain. At the end of January when Trump placed a travel ban on all flights to and from China, the Democratic media complex labeled the move as “racist” and “xenophobic.”

Fast forward two months later and the very same people are complaining the president didn’t take the Wuhan coronavirus seriously.

“In late February, President Trump began downplaying the coronavirus by likening the illness to the seasonal flu,” MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski said.

But looking back at their coverage since January, one thing is clear: the mainstream media has continually said the flu is much worse than the coronavirus.

Doctors and hosts on NBC, MSNBC, CNN and CBS downplayed the seriousness of the Wuhan coronavirus. In fact, they told Americans to be more concerned with contracting influenza than the coronavirus.

“Half the people in America do not get a flu shot and the flu, right now, is far deadlier,” CNN’s Anderson Cooper said on March 4th. “So if you’re freaked out at all about the coronavirus, should be more concerned about the flu.”

The truth is this: China and the World Health Organization (WHO) lied about the origins of the Wuhan coronavirus. We were told in January that the virus is not transmitted through human-to-human contact. We now know that was a lie. Taiwan alerted WHO about the virus in December so other countries could be warned. And guess what happened? Everyone waved Taiwan off.

Instead of holding China and the WHO accountable for this pandemic, the Democratic media complex wants to blame the Trump administration. The Trump administration is doing the best they can with the limited, reliable information they have. They continually give the American people updates on what’s being done, how personal protective equipment (PPE) is being made and shipped to various areas throughout the country, and how to “flatten the curve.”

The 2020 election cycle has been strange. No one can deny that. When former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg entered the race his campaign strategy was the most unique one. He decided to skip Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada and South Carolina. Instead, he sunk all his resources into Super Tuesday states.

He spent hundreds of millions of dollars and came out with a whopping four electoral votes on Super Tuesday. He took the American Samoa territory. That was it.

Even though Bloomberg’s campaign looked doomed, Kevin Sheekey, the campaign manager sent an email to supporters at 12:30 a.m. EST Wednesday morning to make it clear they had a plan to win.

Hey friend —

I’m the campaign manager here at Mike Bloomberg 2020, and I want to thank you for joining our team at this critical moment. People like you are coming together across the country to form a nationwide coalition because they know Mike is the candidate to get it done — he will unite our country and defeat Donald Trump.

Don’t just take our word for it, check out the numbers:

We’re climbing in the polls and building the field’s most diverse, engaged and committed coalition. We’ve had more than 2 million conversations with voters. Over 300,000 people have taken action with the campaign. 2,400 staff members are on our team in 43 states & territories making sure we win in November.

No matter how you want to participate, there’s a role for you on our team — and the time to act is right now. Watch and share our powerful video, “How We Will Win” to let your friends and family know about our campaign’s strategy to run a national campaign — AND WIN.

Thanks for being on the team!

Kevin Sheekey,

Bloomberg 2020

The email also included an ad called “How we will win.”

Fast forward a few hours later and former New York City mayor dropped out of the race. Makes you wonder what changed in the few hours between this email and when the campaign decided to close up shop.

And to think, the hundreds of millions of dollars Bloomberg spent on ad buys could have been used for something more productive, like helping fight America’s homelessness or the coronavirus. He spent more than $500 million of his personal money to make himself a laughing stock. Bravo!

Former South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg attacked President Donald Trump’s Christian supporters during his town hall with CNN on Tuesday. According to Mayor Pete, he can’t seem to understand how Christians support President Trump.

“To the point, you’ve talked about God not belonging to any kind of political party,” CNN’s Erin Burnette started. “At the last CNN town hall you said if your faith calls upon you to help the marginalized, those who are afflicted, to comfort people, to strive for humility and decency, as the Christian faith does, and I quote, ‘Then I just can’t imagine that that requires of you be anywhere near this president.’ Do you think it is impossible to be a Christian and support President Trump?”

“Well, I’m not going to tell other Christians how to be Christians,” Buttigieg replied. “But I will say, I cannot find any compatibility between the way this president conducts himself and anything that I find in scripture. Now I guess that’s my interpretation but I think that’s a lot of people’s interpretation and that interpretation deserves a voice.”

One of the most irritating things about Buttigieg is his ability to pander and use his Christian faith to do it. He cherry-picks what he believes depending on when it’s convenient for him.

He plays the Christian card yet Romans 1:24-27 talks explicitly about homosexuality:

Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.

For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.

He plays the Christian card but supports abortion even though babies are continually mentioned as a reward in the Bible, as evidenced is Psalm 127:3-5:

Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, The fruit of the womb is a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior, So are the children of one’s youth. Happy is the man who has his quiver full of them; They shall not be ashamed, But shall speak with their enemies in the gate.

He plays the Christian card but supports illegal aliens, even though the Bible says those in authority positions are appointed by Him. Rules were established and resisting those rules is resisting God, as described in Romans 13:1-7

Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God. Therefore whoever resists the authority resists the ordinance of God, and those who resist will bring judgment on themselves. For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to evil. Do you want to be unafraid of the authority? Do what is good, and you will have praise from the same. For he is God’s minister to you for good. But if you do evil, be afraid; for he does not bear the sword in vain; for he is God’s minister, an avenger to execute wrath on him who practices evil. Therefore you must be subject, not only because of wrath but also for conscience’ sake. For because of this you also pay taxes, for they are God’s ministers attending continually to this very thing. Render therefore to all their due: taxes to whom taxes are due, customs to whom customs, fear to whom fear, honor to whom honor.

We could go on and on and on. Try again, Pete.

On Thursday, Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-VT) made the case that a border wall is not the answer to America’s problems. He made the statement during a forum sponsored by the League of United Latin American Citizens and Telemundo.

“You have called for the break up of ICE and CBP, so what exactly would you do to secure the southern border of the United States of America?” the moderator asked.

“Well, we have a lot of good technology out there. We need to protect the border. We need to do that in a way that does not build walls, does not separate us from our neighbors, and I think using modern technology and having sufficient manpower to do the job will do,” he explained. “Here is the bottom line. The bottom line is America cannot simply build walls. We look foolish to the rest of the world. We look foolish to Mexico. And that is not something that I will do in my administration.”

There are just a few problems with Bernie’s take:

1) If he wants to get rid of Customs and Border Protection, as well as Immigration and Customs Enforcement, he wants to get rid of Border Patrol agents. He wants to get rid of boots on the ground. You can’t abolish these agencies and still expect manpower along the border.

2) Walls don’t make anyone look foolish. Most countries have some sort of barrier along their borders. Hello, the Great Wall of China is one of the greatest landmarks in the world and what is it? A border wall.

This is just another example of how out-of-touch Bernie really is.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi discussed her legislative priority – America’s children – during the National Governors Association’s winter meeting in Washington, D.C. on Sunday. According to Pelosi, the children’s future is at stake and legislators have to be able to “take a punch” and “throw a punch” when the time comes.

“If your children said now, ‘I’m interested in running for elected office’ – and we all want our children to pursue their dreams and be happy – but what would you say them now?” New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D), the association’s vice chairman, asked. “Is it so tough and so toxic that you might be careful in the advice you give them?”

Pelosi didn’t hesitate to answer.

“Well, we used to say this a long time ago, before it got the way it is now, we all love our children so much we hope they never run for office,” she replied with a laugh. “Because this is not for the faint of heart.”

The House Speaker scanned the crowded room.

“You all know that. It’s not for the faint of heart. It’s difficult, more difficult now, especially for women. As I say to them, ‘You’re in the arena. Once you’re in the arena, again, this is not for the faint of heart,” she explained.

Hesitation washed over her as she continued on.

“It’s Sunday morning. I know I just came from church – mass but, nonetheless, I’ll say this. You’re in the arena. You gotta be ready to take a punch and you gotta be ready to throw a punch,” Pelosi said, holding up a fist. Before the crowd could react, she held up her finger in clarification. “– for the children,” she said.

“For the children, because, really, aren’t we all about the future and how we envision the future?” the Speaker asked. “And it’s about the children and their future.”

Pelosi said there are “three important issues” that continually face Congress.

“I always say the same thing: our children, our children, our children,” she explained. “Their health, their education, the economic security of their families, a clean, safe environment, including gun safety violence protection, in which they can thrive. And a nation, a world at peace in which they can face their fulfillment. There’s plenty of common ground in that.”

If Nancy Pelosi and the rest of her Democratic cohorts cared about America’s future, they would focus on doing the people’s work. They would have worked to get USMCA passed sooner. They would have worked on infrastructure and lowering prescription drug prices instead of impeaching and attempting to remove President Trump from office. If Democrats cared about making sure families had economic security, they would back Trump’s tax cuts that have resulted in more money in Americans’ pockets and record-low unemployment, especially for Hispanics and African Americans, the very demographics they claim to work on behalf of.

If Nancy cared about America’s children, she would come up with policy proposals, not block policy solutions simply because they come from a Republican president or member of Congress. If Nancy cared about America’s children, she would get things done, not play partisan politics.

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) has done everything in his power to get President Donald Trump ousted from office. For more than two years we heard about how the Trump campaign colluded with Russia. Schiff told the American people to wait for Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report, promising he would provide the smoking gun that absolutely proved collusion happened. When Mueller’s report came out, Schiff’s narrative was blown up. Mueller found no collusion took place. What did Schiff do? Instead of admitting that Trump was duly elected and the man the American people wanted to lead this country, Schiff looked for a different “impeachable offense.” That’s when he latched onto Trump’s call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. Schiff and the rest of the Democrats claimed Trump engaged in quid pro quo, that he threatened to withhold military aid to Ukraine unless Zelensky investigated former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter, for corruption.

Now we’re in the middle of this disastrous impeachment saga that takes away from the important work that Congress should be doing, like addressing the homeless crisis in places like San Francisco and Los Angeles.

Dr. Drew Pinsky realized he lives in Adam Schiff’s district and feels compelled to run against the sitting congressman. He came to the realization while watching the impeachment hearings.

“I went to the White House and gave a presentation to the Homeless Symposium we had there. And it was a really meaningful experience for me. They played some of the CSPAN tapes and at the end of that I said, you know, I feel so upset about this. I feel like I have to do something politically,” Pinsky told Fox News’ Laura Ingraham. “I wake up every day upset. I feel like I must do something.”

“People have come to me for various kinds of political engagements and I was watching the impeachment hearings and I was like wait a minute. I think I live in Adam Schiff’s district. I didn’t even know he was my congressman,” Pinsky recounted. “I’ve lived there for 20 years and we’re dying out here. I am sick of the political theater and I want someone to govern. We need help. I need the IMD exclusion lifted so we can treat the mentally chronically ill. We need infrastructure. We are dying in Southern California and these guys are engaged in political theater.”

“I’m like morally obliged to do something,” Pinky said. “I don’t want to, Laura. I don’t want to. I don’t want to do this. It’s not my thing but I feel like I have to.”

America would be better off with a Congressman Dr. Drew Pinsky. Please, Dr. Drew. Run. California needs you. America needs you.

Even though the House of Representatives voted to impeach President Donald Trump, Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has held onto the articles of impeachment. She has continually demanded that the Senate impeachment trial is “fair,” which Democrats argue means calling witnesses to testify.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has refused to comply with the Democrats’ demands, especially since the Senate is under his control, not Nancy’s. The Democrats needed four Republicans to vote in line with them in order to call witnesses. But it’s looking like that won’t be happening after all.

According to The Hill, McConnell has the votes to keep the Senate trial short, meaning new witness testimony and documents would not be included. Two of the moderate Republicans – Sens. Susan Collins (R-ME) and Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) – are voting siding with McConnell.

Both Collins and Murkowski believe the precedent set during the Clinton impeachment trial should be followed. They want to see House impeachment managers and Trump’s defense team make their opening statement. Then, if necessary, the Senate could subpoena for additional documents and witness testimony.

“The process moved to a period during which the Senate debated and voted that three witnesses should be deposed. I believe that this process — the Clinton approach — worked well,” Collins said in a statement.

Murkowski said the Senate should make a decision about calling key witnesses, like former National Security Advisor John Bolton, after the articles of impeachment are actually sent to the Senate.

“We don’t have anything to get to? So do you have any interesting news for me on that? Like when we might be able to get articles?” Murkwoski said. “I don’t think there is any decision on Bolton because we don’t have articles.”

The fact that Collins and Murkowski are siding with Republicans is big. Democrats needed a simple majority in order to pass a resolution to call additional witnesses. That means they needed the entire Democratic Caucus, plus four Republicans, to make that resolution a reality. The Democrats were banking on moderates, like Collins and Murkowski, to vote with them.

The economy is booming. We have the lowest unemployment rate in 50 years. Unemployment is at a historic low for Hispanics and African Americans. People are working. Their taxes were reduced thanks to President Donald Trump’s tax cuts. People have more money in their pockets every paycheck and they are feeling confident in our economy.

More businesses are hiring because their tax burden was reduced when Trump signed the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. Small businesses are able to reinvest in their business, which, in turn, means they have more flexibility to hire people.

Despite those successes, CNN flat out lies about what things are like for the average American, you know, those “Deplorables” in flyover country that voted for this president. That became extremely evident during Sunday’s episode of “Reliable Sources with Brian Stelter” when the panel discussed the economy.

“Before we had this $2 trillion dollar tax cut that’s below the long-term post war average of about three percent. It’s actually way below what it was when Bill Clinton was impeached. When Bill Clinton was impeached we were growing at about four-and-a-half percent,” Washington Post Opinion Columnist Catherine Rampell said.

According to Stelter, it is “fair to say the economy is growing” but those who are “Trump fans are exaggerating the growth.”

“All I hear on Fox is the economy, the economy, it’s growing incredibly,” he said.

“The economy today is not substantially different from the economy before Trump took office,” Rampell replied. “It’s not like you can point to a point in the decline in unemployment and can see that Trump took office, the Red Sea parted and suddenly all these people gain jobs. These are basically the same trends we saw before, despite the fact that there has been all of this fiscal stimulus Trump has pumped into the economy through tax cuts, higher spending. We’re not seeing much payoff from any of it. But because those trends continue, because the economy has not crashed, for some reason Trump gets to claim credit for it, for the fact that things are okay.”

Rampell ran with the argument that things were better when Clinton was impeached in December 1998. According to the U.S. Bureau Labor of Statistics, unemployment was at 4.4 percent at the time. The current unemployment rate is 3.7 percent.

Do any of the people who appear on this network do any basic research before they make baseless claims like this one? Or do they simply say whatever comes to their mind? It seems like the latter.

But then again, we cannot expect the people at leftist “news” organizations, like CNN and MSNBC, to understand what it is like to live in rural America. We cannot expect them to understand what it is like to want to keep your hard-earned money and decide how you spend it. Instead, they sit on their elitist pedestals and flap their gums about how “orange man bad.” The funniest part is they continually wonder why no one taxes them seriously and why their ratings are continually taking.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said, in a round about way, that she disagrees with 2020 Democrats’ Medicare for All plan. Specifically, she takes issue with people losing their private health insurance and doesn’t see Medicare for All as a workable solution.

“I don’t think you can decide one day that, in a matter of days, no one will have their private health insurance. I just don’t see that as a path,” Pelosi told CBS News’ Margaret Brennan. “I do think that though people have these exuberance and their why and what excites them about running for office, and that has to be taken into consideration when we make judgments about their policies. Plus, everyone knows that once you’re elected then you have to work together.”

The American people were upset with Obamacare. Not only did the quality of health care plummet but the individual mandate penalized the poor for being just that… poor. People couldn’t afford health insurance so what happened? They had to pay a penalty to the government.

When the Affordable Care Act was merely a proposal, average Americans had issue with it. When it became a reality, we felt the sting of the policy. And, at the time, Obamacare was considered extreme. What’s scary is these 2020 Democrats think Obamacare “doesn’t go far enough” or it can “be improved.” And by improved, they mean the government can dig deeper into your pockets and your medical records.

The fact that Pelosi and former President Barack Obama are telling these candidates that their far-left policies are hindering them should be a warning they listen to. We know they won’t listen though.

As Democrats continue with their impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump, one thing is increasingly clear: the Democratic Party is worried about their ability to beat Trump in 2020. Voters go to the polls in the Iowa Caucus in less than 12 weeks and the Democratic field is still fairly packed.

The Trump campaign is focused on reminding the American people of promises the President made during the 2016 election cycle and kept once in office. He has successfully delivered on tax cuts, unemployment rates have hit a record low – especially for Hispanics and African Americans – and the Senate has successfully confirmed 99 judges (with more slated for the remainder of the year).

New data from the Republican National Committee shows Americans are feeling the benefits of having President Trump in office. Voters in three key battleground states – New Hampshire, Michigan and Pennsylvania – say they are better off financially today than they were three years ago.

“Democrats know they cannot beat President Donald Trump at the ballot box in 2020. The American people are better off today than they were three years ago, and a socialist nominee would only destroy the economic progress enjoyed by tens of millions,” Trump Victory spokesperson Rick Gorka told Townhall. “We know the partisan impeachment witch hunt is fueled by political motives but we also know the American people believe President Donald Trump is the reason for more money in their pockets.”

In Michigan, voters are 17 percent more likely to believe they are better off financially today than they were three years ago. That number jumps to 22 percent with voters under 35 years old. Those who reside in Macomb County, part of the Detroit metro area, are 22 percent more likely to agree that they are better off financially than they were three years ago.

Voters in New Hampshire are 33 percent more likely to believe they are better off financially than they were before the Trump administration. Working moms in the state are 31 percent more likely to feel their financial situation has improved since Trump took office. For voters in rural Coos County, it’s 34 percent more likely.

Pennsylvanians are benefitting from the Trump economy and are 20 percent more likely to agree that they are better off than they were three years ago. That number jumps with voters under 35 years old to 25 percent. Working moms in the state are 18 percent more likely to feel their financial situation has improved.

The RNC invested more than $350 million in data that tracks key issues in every state, which allows their data and analytics team to closely monitor electorates and the issues that are important to them.

According to Bill Skelly, CEO of Causeway Solutions, a leader in the data field, the RNC’s information is “unmatched.”

“I work with RNC voter data every day and the quality and breadth of information is unmatched. The data is refreshed daily with information collected through the tireless efforts of RNC-led volunteers, activists and campaigns out there making phone calls and knocking on the doors of real voters in real time,” Skelly told Townhall. “As a result, Republicans have an extremely valuable asset that their Democrat counterparts are rightly jealous of.”

This data is provided to campaigns at the federal, state and local levels free of charge. The only thing the RNC asks for in return: for Republicans across the country to keep the data up-to-date when they knock on doors and phone bank.

“Instead of paying for data, the GOP candidates and organizations use sweat equity to improve it,” Skelly said. “It is the secret weapon Republicans all over the county are able to deploy to win their political battles.”
