Democrats own interest; not America’s interest with coronavirus
Frank Aquila

While millions of Americans are in a pandemic and suffering either economically or medically from the affect of the coronavirus, Nancy Pelosi, Josh Harder, and the Democrats are more interested in political games rather than pass an economic stimulus package to address the financial hardship that Americans and businesses have endured. In past national emergencies, all Americans put politics aside and came together for the sake of the country; but not today’s Democrats.  They would rather play political games to hurt the American people if it means hurting the economy to position themselves to win an election in November.

Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats have demanded a number of items on an economic stimulus bill that has nothing to do with either the virus or the economy; but more in their political interest such as:

• Using the federal government, under the National Voter Registration Act of 1993 to force changes nationwide to state voter registration and voting laws, such as forcing same-day registration, early voting, voting by mail, and ballot harvesting, which had its test run in California the last election, where any person can take the ballot of an individual and turn that ballot in. This has become the new voter fraud by Democrats as a number of ballots will have no prevention of tampering, verification, or chain of evidence that the ballot was appropriately filled out by the person receiving the ballots. There is also no proof that such a ballot received by a harvester who disagrees with a person’s voting position ever turned in or changed the ballots. During the 2018 midterm elections, seven congressional districts in California flipped Democrat days after Election Day as harvested ballots with no accountability or verification were turned in. In all cases, the Republican candidate was winning the district by thousands of votes only to lose once such ballots were turned in.  Statically this is improbable if not impossible.

Obviously same-day voter-registration, early voting, and voting by mail are disguised by convenience; but it is another avenue for tampering with an election and eliminating the validation of the voter or attempts to create voter fraud.  Democrats have also included online voter registration and a request for Absentee Ballots to be sent to all voters.  Democrats can manipulate the voting system to assure many votes are turned in including illegal votes on Election Day and with Democrats objections to any sort of voter identification or verification, you could easily have individuals voting for those that are deceased, recently moved, ill, or individuals who have verified they don’t plan to vote for various reasons. Then to top it off, there is a provision for limits on audits of elections. Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats never miss a trick or an opportunity to use a crisis for their own advantage.

What does voting registration or voting regulations have to do with the coronavirus?  Nothing; but power for Democrats to control future elections from the will of the people without any accountability  to assure all ballots are legitimate and verified.

What else is in Nancy Pelosi’s goody bag holding up relief to America? 

• Increased fuel emission standards for airlines to be cut by 25 percent bu 2035 and 50 percent by 2050.

• Payments for up to $10,000 in student loans.

• Preserving collective bargaining powers for unions.

• An expansion of wind and solar tax credits.

• Requirements for federal and corporate gender and racial diversity data.

• Post Office bailouts.

• Automatic extension of non immigrant visas.

• Restrictions of colleges from providing information about citizenship status.

• And of course, money for Planned Parenthood, a billion dollar baby part butchering business, where Democrats funnel money to Planned Parenthood and in return Planned Parenthood funnels money back to the DNC to support Democrats candidates like Josh Harder, who  no wonder supports infanticide, the killing of infant babies after they were born during a botched abortion. 

It is beyond disgust what the Democrat party has become today. Nancy Pelosi has deliberately hijacked America with a laundry list of goodies that have nothing to do with helping America or the American people against the coronavirus or the economy.

Some Democrats have publicly stated they wanted a recession even if it hurt Americans because that would provide them their best opportunity to beat President Trump. Democrats are not interested in what is best for America; they are only interested in what is best for the power and control of America for themselves.
