Democrats’ Coronavirus Wishlist Exposes Their Long-Term Strategies
by Don Rosenberg 3/31/2020
The Senate worked tirelessly last week on emergency coronavirus legislation and showed true bi-partisanship for the first time in many years. They divided up into working groups and developed joint plans in five major areas…
The bill provided for…
Direct payments to the American people ($1.2K/person, $2.4K/couple, $500/child)
$350B for small businesses
$250B in unemployment insurance
$100B for hospitals
$4.5B for the CDC
$11B for vaccines, therapeutics, diagnostics, and other preparedness needs
$5B for FEMA Disaster Relief Fund
$1.7B for Strategic National Stockpile
$12B for the military
$20B for Veterans health care
$12B for K-12 education
$6B for higher education

As the negotiations wound down, suddenly Nancy Pelosi flew into town and immediately called a halt to the negotiations, announcing she would be presenting the House Democrats’ proposal shortly.
She and other Democrat leaders didn’t want to miss their chance to hold America hostage in exchange for whatever they felt they could get away with. As House Majority Whip James Clyburn, South Carolina Democrat, reportedly said last week, “This is a tremendous opportunity to restructure things to fit our vision.”
Their list of demands starkly reveals their true motives as a political party.
Democrats pretend to be a united group of Americans with a common set of values, in reality they have only one goal, achieve political power and hold onto it forever.
Their path to power involves identifying different subsets of Americans, scaring them with lies about evil Republicans and pandering to them in order to get their votes.
The “Democrat Coalition” is made up of environmentalists, Hispanics and illegal immigrants, minorities, students, and unions. Each group was promised something big in their version of the emergency coronavirus bill in exchange for their votes in November.
Environmentalists were promised a $1 billion “cash for clunkers” airplane program where the Transportation Department buys fuel-inefficient planes from airlines in exchange for agreeing to buy new ones, expansive new tax-credits for solar and wind energy, mandates that airlines reduce their overall carbon emissions by 50 percent by 2050. And they promised to require all airlines that receive assistance to offset carbon emissions for domestic flights by 2025.
Hispanics and illegal immigrants were promised automatic extension of non-immigrant visas and restrictions to keep colleges from providing information about citizenship status. They proposed to limit Customs and Border Patrol’s ability to shutdown processing centers if there is a health crisis on the border and require CBP to assure the timely adjudication of asylums applications. Also they proposed requiring the Homeland Security Department to automatically extend visas and work authorizations expiring within the next year and offered extra funding to go to sanctuary cities.
Minorities were to get $1 billion and calls for federal authorities to immediately expand the “emergency lifeline broadband benefit” for every household that contains at least one “qualifying low-income consumer.” Federal agencies would be forced to explain to Congress how they are increasing their usage of “minority banks.” They would require “board diversity disclosure” for all publicly traded companies. They also threw in a permanent expansion of the Obamacare entitlement and sought to revive the Obama “free cell phones for all” program.
Students’ votes were to be bought with a provision offering $10,000 each to pay off part of their student loans.
Unions were promised a multi-employer pension bailout, nullification of White House executive orders on federal collective bargaining, new rules for taxpayer-funded union official time, permanent changes to who can serve on corporate boards of directors for companies that receive assistance for payroll and operating costs. They proposed to permanently raise the minimum wage to $15 for any business that receives federal aid for COVID-19 and to require a labor union representative on every airline’s board of directors.
Senator and Dr. John Barrasso summed it all up in an empassioned speech on the floor of the U.S. Senate…
That’s not enough…
But the Democrats are now realizing that their alliance is crumbling and they are losing voters they once thought were a sure thing. So in order to guarantee a win in all future elections, the Democrats revealed that enabling widespread voter fraud is the other side of their grand scheme to win permanent control of the United States.
This can clearly be seen in their proposals for election changes, many focusing specifically on 2020. They demand no-excuse voting by mail, nationalization of ballot harvesting, federal rules on how all states must run elections, they require same-day voter registration, and are actually requiring early voting. They even include rules that put states at risk of costly litigation if they are unable to implement these stringent mandates ahead of the 2020 election.
Holding dying Americans hostage to political demands is truly despicable, but the real horror is what it reveals about the long-term plans of the Democrat Party.
The final conclusion is this. If the Democrat Party were ever to regain power our Republic would be over. Their control of the electoral process would be so complete that eventually no conservative would ever win office. This has already happened in California. Democrat control has led to new election rules that stipulate that the top two vote getters in a primary run against each other in the general election, even if they are from the same party. This has eliminated almost all conservative office holders and disenfranchised a large section of their population.
Even in the midst of our coronavirus social distancing, as concerned Americans we need to be sharing the truth about what’s going on, and we need to take an active role in exposing the Democrats’ true intentions and supporting true conservative candidates at all levels.
