  4. Pelosi is proud that she left the American people waiting for relief while she played politics.

    “Nancy Pelosi Let Millions Suffer To Win An Election

    Pelosi didn’t care about the American people, all she cared about was winning.”

    “Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has cackled the quiet part out loud. In a statement Friday, she announced that all of a sudden, after months and months of American people and small businesses begging for relief, that she will now compromise on a $908 billion stimulus package.

    Why the sudden change of heart? Because Joe Biden is the proclaimed winner of the presidential race. What is as plain as the couture mask on Nancy’s face is that she let millions suffer for one reason and one reason only, to help Joe Biden win the election.

    Here is what she had to say:

    “Finally, we have a new dynamic, a new president in a little more than a month committed to crushing the virus … and more than one successful vaccine to make all the difference in the world.”

    First of all, we have known that there would be vaccines on the way for months, so just throw that garbage excuse out the window. What she is saying is that she held the American people hostage until they voted the way she wanted.

    Pelosi had two paths before the election, to accept the $1.8 trillion-package President Trump offered as a compromise (which last I checked was actually bigger than $908 billion) and see what happened in the election to seek more, or to stiff the American people while she got her hair done without a mask and ate expensive ice cream. She chose the latter in a cynical effort to hurt Donald Trump.

    Pelosi and her sycophants will say that they had no guarantee that Trump, if reelected, would follow through with more stimulus in the new year. Even if that is true, and there is not much reason to believe it is, so what? In what universe is nothing with a chance of more later better than something with a chance of more later? It makes absolutely no sense.

    Pelosi isn’t even arguing that she was delaying as a tactic to move Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to her position before the election. She knew that wouldn’t happen and she didn’t care. She refused to compromise.

    This is truly one of the most disgusting political maneuvers in American history. She made a calculation that letting businesses close for good, disproportionately minority-owned businesses by the way, so that her party could win the White House was worth it. She allowed children to go hungry to get votes. She should resign in shame.”

    She has no shame.

  9. Moving beyond “hack,” those interested in what is usually a very good and thoughtful survey of the media these days might want to check out Howard Kurtz’s MediaBuzz on Fox News Sunday mornings. He offers a hard look at where coverage of our national politics has gone wrong but does so with an insider’s knowledge and experience and context. Good guests, too. He doesn’t go easy on the press, but has some good insight to offer.

    You’re welcome.

  10. https://www.theepochtimes.com/this-election-puts-corruption-of-the-media-on-full-display_3606750.html?utm_source=news&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=breaking-2020-12-07-3

    “It’s an enviable position to be in, this of the ultimate and thus presumptively infallible arbiter of truth and falsehood, but the media simply assume it as their right. That they should do so is of course not surprising. That so many good liberals should concede that right to them without so much as a peep of protest—and even join in the abuse of anyone advocating suspension of judgment and investigation into the claims of fraud—is rather surprising.”

    “Instead of such bad-faith efforts to refute the allegations of fraud unheard, why wouldn’t the Democrats themselves take the lead in seeking to dispel the widespread suspicion on the part of the public that the system is rigged by supporting a thorough investigation of the allegations and suspending the certification of the result until it was complete? Isn’t this the only way for trust in the integrity of the electoral system to be preserved? And isn’t such trust vital for democracy to succeed?

    I’m afraid we must conclude that neither democracy nor the public’s trust in it are high priorities for the Democrats, who appear to have decided that such things are less important than their No. 1 goal during four long years of getting rid of Trump by any means necessary.”
