Nancy Pelosi, guest on a Bloomberg TV show, about the huge 33% GDP 3rd Quarter numbers.
“Does that make you think that we may not need another stimulus as much as we thought we did?”
PELOSI: No. In fact, it is proof that we need the stimulus even more so. The reason we had a good — a better third quarter is because what we did in the CARES Act and the subsequent legislation for PPP that put money into the economy. That’s gonna wear off, and we need another infusion.”
With no shame, Pelosi claims credit for the 33% increase in GDP 3Q. She also claimed that it required their wish list of COVID relief that has nothing to do with COVID.
Makes you wonder how much better the numbers would have been if New York, California, New Jersey, Hawaii, and a few other Blue states had participated?
During the relatively flat 2% +or- GDP years of the Obama/Biden administration, we suffered two stimulus packages that did more for labor unions than the economy. No effect to GDP.
Truth is, Democrats are never satisfied, and can never be satisfied, when it comes to growing the size of government and government spending. That’s why they call it investing. Sounds better to the dumb masses.
“Tony Bobulinski, former business associate of Hunter Biden, addresses media in Nashville, Tenn. ahead of second presidential debate.”
And by “media,” only FOX News covered it live or reported it.
Here’s where the media is today. Well, aside from being the PR Department for the Democrat Party. For over three years, they have been reporting nothing but Trump/Russia collusion in trying to rig the election to favor Trump. Which was proven to be a lie. And they still carry it on today, a la Rep. Adam BullSchiff.
And today, when there is a real live participant (that would be like a real whistleblower), who wants to publicly set the record straight, the same media will NOT cover it. Which arguably could be considered an attempt to rig THIS election.
Now that D’s and the media, for the most part, recognize that the Southern border is out of control, they all still resist any attempt of the Trump administration to fix it.
They scoff at President Trump’s invites to Democrats to meet and fix it. Meanwhile, record number of illegals make their way here to get on the gravy train. The incentives that the current immigration laws provide them.
Some R’s accuse the Democrats as not having a plan to deal with the crisis on the border. It should be obvious by now that they actually do have a plan. Democrats’ plan is to do nothing. They’re seeing undocumented democrats. The rest of America and Americans be damned.
This budget deal is Democrats’ way of saying “FU Trump. We Heart Open Borders. Here’s what you have to work with. Have a nice day!”
As small as it is, it comes with a qualifications. For instance, no increase in the number of Border Patrol Agents.
As for the “barrier,” the legislation limits designs to only those that were in use two years ago, before Trump’s election. No Trump innovation, no new wall construction or design is permitted.
The legislation does not pay for the increase in beds the administration requested for detention facilities. Left up to what the House appropriated, they intend to continue the catch and release of illegal aliens, including those with criminal records.
Let them sleep on the floor then. The ‘plus’ from that would be that it would be a negative incentive for others to come and crash the border. Which is currently estimated to be 60,000 per month. And, that they will not be released to prey on Americans and American Cities because Democrats won’t spring for a bed.
The House of Representatives is not responsible for the National Security. The Executive Branch is. That’s why President Trump has declared a National State of Emergency, to give him the means to fulfill his responsibility of keeping us safe.
Oddly, Nancy Pelosi and her Party are crying that Trump has overstepped his bounds by going around Congress. In reality, it is Congress that failed to provide funding necessary for national security, something they are not responsible for. By virtue of their actions, NOT funding national security as requested by the DHS, Border Patrol, and the President, Congress is the one interfering with business of the Executive Branch. Not the other way around.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren, trying to sell herself as your average beer-swigging multimillionaire former Harvard Law prof who’s a champion of the middle class, pops a bottle of beer. Pulled that cap off with her bare hands. The name Michael Dukakis comes to mind.
Wanting to appeal to the middle class, she pops a beer. Stereotype much? Hillary’s hot sauce. John Kerry tried to relate with ‘get me a hunting license’ line, in full camo. Odd how Democrats always pretend to be something they’re not.

Democrats say that a border wall won’t work, and is a waste of taxpayer money. They can’t know that because we’ve never had one. $5 billion the President is asking for is too much money? Yet they have no problem paying $113 billion A YEAR, and growing, to support illegal aliens already here.
And that doesn’t count the social cost of murders, robberies, kidnapping, human trafficking, and drugs they bring with them.
No, their priority is not public safety or fiscal responsibility. Their priority two-fold. Resisting whatever Trump wants to do, and political power to the exclusion of about half the country.
Belly up to the counter. Politics are on the menu and Ross is on the grill.
