    Default Democratic Hat Trick: Biden, Schumer, Pelosi

    IF the Democrats manage to take both the White House and the Senate because of Republican blunders, the Democrats will have full control of the reigns of government for the first time in 10 years. The last time they did they the result was Obamacare in the middle of the Great Recession.

    The Triumvirate of Biden, Schumer and Pelosi will, no doubt see another Clinton gun ban on the table almost immediately after the election and signed into law by next Spring. There will certainly be other changes as the Democrats seek to jam as much mandatory law down the throats of Americans as they can until the 2022 Midterms since they know the same thing that happened in 2010 will probably happen again.

    Despite Newt's fear-mongering and other bullshit, he does make some good points in this article about what a Biden-Schumer-Pelosi Triumvirate would look like:
    https://www.newsweek.com/biden-schum...pinion-1510532
    Every time some supposed conservative or Republican explains why he or she can't be for President Donald Trump, I wonder if they have thought about the alternativeóthe Biden-Schumer-Pelosi machine.

    Our choice this fall is not between President Trump and President Perfection. It is between President Trump and a nightmare that would end America as we have known it...

    A taste of what is to come in 2021.

    https://nymag.com/intelligencer/2020...ial-plans.html
    Biden will presumably spend that time developing a detailed map of what will be necessary come Inauguration Day. Long before the pandemic, he described a range of actions he’d take on day one, from rejoining the Paris climate agreement to signing executive orders on ethics, and he cited other matters, like passing the Equality Act for LGBTQ protections, as top priorities. Already his recovery ambitions have grown to include plans that would flex the muscles of big government harder than any program in recent history. To date, the federal government has spent more than $2 trillion on the coronavirus stimulus — nearly three times what it approved in 2009. Biden wants more spending. “A hell of a lot bigger,” he’s said, “whatever it takes.” He has argued that, even if you’re inclined to worry about the deficit, massive public investment is the only thing capable of growing the economy enough “so the deficit doesn’t eat you alive.” He has talked about funding immense green enterprises and larger backstop proposals from cities and states and sending more relief checks to families. He has urged immediate increases in virus and serology testing, proposing the implementation of a Pandemic Testing Board in the style of FDR’s War Production Board and has called for investments in an “Apollo-like moonshot” for a vaccine and treatment. And he floated both the creation of a 100,000-plus worker Public Health Jobs Corps and the doubling of the number of OSHA investigators to protect employees amid the pandemic. If he were president now, he said in March, he would demand paid emergency sick leave for anyone in need and mandate that no one would have to pay for coronavirus testing or treatment. As the crisis deepened, he said he would forgive federal student-loan debt — $10,000 per person, minimum — and add $200 a month to Social Security checks.

    Hello Dutch Uncle,

    Well, this was expectable cherry-picking and fear mongering by Gingrich, but then he simply goes off into fantasyland with this: " it is likely the Biden-Schumer-Pelosi team will "pack the court" and create more seats for the U.S. Supreme Court."

    That's ridiculous. If he posted that I would immediately ask for something to back it up. Sounds like purely conjured imagination.

    Obviously this biased piece is written purely for the purpose of reelecting Trump, and carefully contrived with that goal from the outset.

    "Police (if they survive at all) will face ..." - Shameless scare tactic.

    Piled higher and deeper: "theft-based economies and might-makes-right will replace the rule of law."

    Mixed with more realistic projections:

    "The Iran nuclear agreement will be renewed. The United States will rejoin the Paris Accord on Climate Change—and will meet its full funding obligation to the World Health Organization."

    Those things sound like a very good idea.

    "None of these examples are partisan exaggerations."

    That was a bald faced lie.

    I'm good with the US re-joining the Paris Accord.

    Gingrich? remember his contact on America stunt
    Nationalism is an infantile disease. It is the measles of mankind. Albert Einstein

    America's future is bright, not white

    And it's not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy toward people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment

    Again, what "importance"? What will it solve?

    She won't. As it stands, she won't outlive a few of the ones already there.
    And if she was elected (slim chance) president, or even takes over for Biden,
    she won't get the chance to nominate more than one or two at most.
