    No crisis at the border, eh? And Biden want’s to tear down the wall. Imagine if this were Trump’s policy of bringing them in and let them loose at this time of the pandemic and economic morass. Making America better for whom?
    Biden suggested that Trump's China Travel Ban of January 30, 2020 was xenophobic, as did Pelosi. Then during the campaign, both had the gall to claim that Trump did nothing of substance to protect against the virus.

    You can not engage a reasoned conversation with such intellectually twisted people who present their presumptions as settled facts, engage in "Doublethink," and who are further inclined distort, twist, and misrepresent facts.

    Regrettably, such people exist on this forum.

    Children and adults are coming across the border testing positive for Covid. The detention facilities are near capacity and these individuals will be released into the general population. And the crossing are expected to increase.

    No wonder Biden hasn't had a solo press conference in 43 days. They have him under lock and key when he is not signing one of his 50 executive orders to destroy Trump's legacy.

    The question is: Are liberals really this stupid or are playing stupid for nefarious purposes? Besides doing everything they can to increase their voter base. Most of them can't come up with one sound platform or idea that the dem party has. I would take just one that makes any sense whatsoever.

    Crybabies, well we don't like filibuster so let's get rid of it. We don't like the supreme court so lets pack it. We don't like the electoral college so let's get rid of it. Petulant children this bunch are.

    Dispute on things not Covid-related in the $1.9 trillion relief bill

    Fortunately, Republicans are railing against the legislation, saying it is replete with excess spending unrelated to the coronavirus pandemic and unnecessary after Congress already devoted some $4 trillion last year to fighting the pandemic. Issues:

    • Eligibility for $1,400 relief checks
    • Excluding a $15 minimum wage.
    • $350 billion pot of state and local aid, setting aside $10 billion of it for infrastructure needs that could include broadband
    • Including a rule barring cities and states from using any new federal money to pay down pension costs or offset new attempts to cut taxes.

    Senate votes to open debate on Biden’s $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief bill

    Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has guaranteed the House will pass the Senate’s version of the bill, despite some changes that liberals dislike, including narrowing eligibility for $1,400 relief checks and excluding a $15 minimum wage.

    Cuomo advisers altered COVID-19 nursing homes report: WSJ


    BY JORDAN WILLIAMS - 03/04/21 10:53 PM EST

    Advisers to New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) pushed state health officials to alter a public report from July over COVID-19 deaths in nursing homes, people with knowledge of the report’s production told The Wall Street Journal.

    The report focused only on residents who died inside long-term care facilities and didn’t include those who died in hospitals after becoming sick in nursing homes. The report said that 6,432 nursing home residents had died, which was an undercount of the death toll, the sources told the newspaper.

    The report in question came as a result of a study from the New York State Department of Health (DOH) into the impact of a March directive which stated that nursing homes couldn’t refuse to readmit residents or admit new residents from hospitals simply due to a COVID-19 diagnosis.


    According to the newspaper, the report shifted the blame of the virus’s spread to staff who brought the virus with them to work.

    The initial version of the report included data on deaths of nursing home residents inside of homes, as well as deaths that occurred in hospitals, the Journal reported. However, members of Cuomo’s COVID-19 task force, which included Secretary to the Governor Melissa DeRosa, requested that the report downplay the role of the March directive, which was rejected.

    According to the Journal, the published report said the directive was “not a significant factor in nursing home fatalities.”

    Garvey told the Journal that task force members didn’t request the change to the report, but were “very cautious to not overstate the statistical analysis presented in the report. Overall, ensuring public confidence in the conclusion was the ultimate goal of DOH and the Covid task force in issuing the report.”

    The Journal’s report comes as Cuomo faces mounting calls for his resignation amid his handling of COVID-19 deaths in nursing homes, as well as allegations of inappropriate behavior from staff members.


    State lawmakers came to an agreement on Tuesday to strip Cuomo of his pandemic-related emergency powers amid the controversies.

    New York Attorney General Letitia James (D) released a report in January which found that Cuomo’s administration underreported nursing home deaths by as much as 50 percent, and faulted the March directive.

    Those damn non compassionate Republicans

    President Biden’s surrogate mainstream media outlet decided to deride the Republicans in general today as heartless for daring to claim the Covid stimulus bill as more than a relief package, but a wish list for the progressive Democrats.

    Republicans Won Blue-Collar Votes. They’re Not Offering Much in Return. (BS)

    https://www.nytimes.com/2021/03/04/u...ovid-bill.html

    Republicans have offered very little to advance the economic interests of blue-collar workers.

    In Washington, where Democrats won a vote on Thursday to advance a nearly $2 trillion economic stimulus bill to the Senate floor, they were facing universal opposition from congressional Republicans to the package, which is chock-full of measures to benefit struggling workers a full year into the coronavirus pandemic. The bill includes $1,400 checks to middle-income Americans and extended unemployment benefits, which are set to lapse on March 14.

    It’s possible that Republicans who are not prioritizing economic issues are accurately reading their base. A survey last month by the G.O.P. pollster Echelon Insights found that the top concerns of Republican voters were mainly cultural ones: illegal immigration, lack of support for the police, high taxes and “liberal bias in mainstream media.”

    “The Covid-19 relief bill was directly aimed at the struggles of working-class people,” Mr. Ryan said, adding that Republicans voting against the package were “in for a rude awakening.”

    But Republicans who vote it down may not pay a political price, said Patrick Murray, the poll’s director. “They know that the checks will reach their base regardless, and they can continue to rail against Democratic excesses,” he said.

    “There would only be a problem if they somehow managed to sink the bill,” he added.

    The Biden border plan

    Let’s see if I have this right.

    I live 15 miles away from the Canadian border, but the Peace Bridge is closed because Prime Minister Justin Trudeau decided to close the border because of Covid concerns. Closed (as of now) to even American citizens who have received both Covid vaccinations. Biden spoke to Trudeau on open the border and was told: ‘Not yet.”

    Near one year of lockdowns, mandated masked wearing, gathering and social distancing restrictions, quarantines, testing / trace testing, Dr. Fauci’s daily scare tactics, opening the southern border to illegals sounds like a good idea to Biden.

    Continue to shut down schools, businesses, restrict travel, etc., for Americans, but open the border to illegals; many of whom are not wearing masks, testing positive for Covid, if tested at all, and those not tested will eventually be sent on busses to all parts of America.

    What could possibly go wrong there?

    How does that make America better?
