Pelosi Stops COVID-19 Rescue Bill Hoping To Kill Economy, Trump Calls Her Bluff

Nancy Pelosi is once again playing politics with the COVID-19 national emergency. The Speaker has refused to pass the coronavirus relief packages over the weekend, hoping to make the GOP add all her pork projects. She is also loving that the longer she takes the outcome is killing the economy and hurting President Donald Trump’s re-election. Well, the president just called her bluff. Don’t miss this.

More and more Americans are questioning this total shutdown of the economy that has happened thanks to the hysteria surrounding the coronavirus. With Nancy Pelosi refusing to sign the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act, or the CARES Act, there are serious questions about the virus and the response to the virus. It appears to be purely political.

“Some Dems are betting that Trump will be received as Bush post-Katrina as opposed to Bush post-9/11. And there’s a split among Dems about how they ought to be handling Trump in this moment, which so far has ended up benefiting the president,” posted Maggie Haberman, the noted Trump-hating journalist who works for the New York Times.

“So for Democrats coronavirus isn’t about how best to handle a health crisis, or cope with the economic consequences, but rather how best to position their political narrative against President Trump? OK, got it. Thanks for clearing that up. That explains Pelosi and Schumer,” Conservative Treehouse responded to Haberman.

President Trump told Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to call Speaker Pelosi’s bluff. 

“Man-o-man, this is some high-stakes poker playing, and it’s the United States economy on the table. Mitch McConnell is going to put S.3548 The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act, or the CARES Act, back on the Senate floor at 9:45 am ET tomorrow, 15 minutes after the stock market starts collapsing,” CTH added Sunday night.

“Sweet Baby Jesus… I can’t remember ever seeing anything like this. A $20 trillion U.S. economy, and tens-of-millions of American jobs and businesses on the line….  And McConnell is calling Pelosi’s bluff. P.U.B.L.I.C.L.Y!” CTH declared. “Talk about seriously high stakes politics. Yikes. McConnell is going to make every Democrat senator vote again to close debate and advance the bill; putting them on record for negotiating a deal and then walking away from the deal they assembled.”

“I would imagine Senator McConnell has talked to President Trump about this,” CTH concluded.

Making matter worse, ZeroHedge published an article by technologist Aaron Ginn, that Google and the mainstream media had blocked. What was Ginn pointing out that was so “dangerous?”

“Aaron Ginn wrote a long, charts-and-statistics-filled blog post [originally] at Medium arguing that the available public health data shows that COVID-19 is less easily transmitted, less fatal, and more likely to fade away with the hot weather than the conventional wisdom would have you believe. Medium deleted the post, which is now hosted at ZeroHedge,” National Review reports. 

Ginn makes the point that if we continue down this path more Americans will die due to an economic collapse, than from any virus. This explains Nancy Pelosi’s behavior. It sure doesn’t appear that old Pelosi is scared of this virus. She’s using it to collapse the economy hoping to hurt Trump’s re-election.

Americans sounded off on the Speaker’s antics. 

“The left doesn’t give a d**n about anything but blocking Trump’s 2nd term, even if it means destroying our economy. We need a huge red wave this November U.S. Futures Dive as Democrats Accuse GOP of Rushing Rescue Bill,” tweeted Andrew Douglas.

Instead of the swift action that is needed, @TheDemocrats purposely crash the stock market. Don’t expect your job to be there when your employee is forced to go belly up due to Dems!” tweeted “DeplorabusUnum.”

Anything to hurt @realDonaldTrump– the #Democrat’s will damage the economy as much as possible, hurting every day Americans. Again, they have no interest in helping Americans- they are quietly celebrating the crash of our economy,” tweeted “Voice of Washington’s Silent Majority.” 

You get the picture. Pelosi and her cohorts have created mass hysteria so the economy crashes. 

“The data collected so far on how many people are infected and how the epidemic is evolving are utterly unreliable,” John P.A. Ionnidis, a professor in disease prevention at Stanford said.

Numbers don’t lie. The fact is the World Health Organization (WHO) based it’s coronavirus numbers on an unreliable formula that started the panic. They claim that 3.4 percent of those infected will die. Now, we have people who are experts in disease control and stats telling us WHO’s numbers are way off.

Those same experts, who have no dog in this game politically, are being censored. Meanwhile, we have Democrat governors shutting their states down. Luckily, President Trump just called their bluff:


We can help the president. Make sure he knows Americans are behind him. We do not want the Democrats to crash the economy. When this 15 day period is over on April 1, make sure Trump knows this shutdown must be stopped.

Damage has been done, but that doesn’t mean we have to keep digging our economy’s grave. It’s time we listen to all the experts and stop listening to the World Health Organization, which is funded by the Chinese government. Only then can we take the right steps to stop the virus while not collapsing our economy.
