New Poll Has Some Bad News For Liberals In Love With Reparations And Health Care For Illegals

Better hand out a box of tissues.

If you happen to listen to the mainstream media on a daily basis — why you would put yourself through such torture is beyond me — they’d seemingly have you convinced that reparations and health care for illegals are the top issues that the vast majority of Americans are concerned about right now and will have some sort of impact on the 2020 election.

And if you think that, it’s time to unplug from CNN and MSNBC stat, because a new poll says that’s not at all the case.

In fact, only 27 percent of folks surveyed supported reparations, and only 33 percent favored giving taxpayer-funded health care to illegal immigrants. The vast majority of those polled also stated that decriminalizing border crossing — a position held by most Democrats running for president — is a horrible idea.

The NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll of 1,346 adults was conducted July 15-17 and has a 3.5% margin of error.

Last month, the Democrat-led House Judiciary Committee debated reparations, the first such hearing in a decade. In the Senate, Sen. Cory Booker, a 2020 candidate, introduced a reparations bill in April, saying, “This bill is a way of addressing head-on the persistence of racism, white supremacy, and implicit racial bias in our country.”

“It will bring together the best minds to study the issue and propose solutions that will finally begin to right the economic scales of past harms and make sure we are a country where all dignity and humanity is affirmed,” Booker said. “Since slavery in this country, we have had overt policies fueled by white supremacy and racism that have oppressed African-Americans economically for generations,” he said.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said reparations are a “bad idea,” and he’s totally right for a number of reasons. For starters, it’s unjust to hold innocent people accountable for the crimes of guilty people, especially when those guilty people are no longer even alive.

Secondly, reparations would be funded by tax dollars. We’re already taxed to the gills and can’t really afford much more of our daily household incomes to be drained away.

McConnell stated, “I don’t think reparations for something that happened 150 years — for whom none of us currently living are responsible — is a good idea. We’ve tried to deal with our original sin of slavery by fighting a civil war, by passing landmark civil rights legislation, by electing an African American president. I think we’re always a work in progress in this country but no one currently alive was responsible for that.”

Sen. Elizabeth Warren is a big fan of the idea, writing on Twitter:

“Slavery is a stain on America & we need to address it head on. I believe it’s time to start a national, full-blown conversation about reparations. I support the bill in the House to support a congressional panel of experts so that our nation can do what’s right & begin to heal.”

It’s important for us, as consumers of news product, to be aware that the mainstream media has given up on being objective journalists who present their audiences with facts and allow them to make up their own minds.

Now these outlets are propaganda arms that are designed to push forth the progressive agenda, making you believe the vast majority of Americans buy into what liberals are selling, when that isn’t at all the case.

Take the news with a grain of salt, folks. Or better yet, find better sources of information and factcheck often.

Save conservative media!

President Trump Criticizes Democrats After What He Called A ‘Crazy, Chaotic’ Debate

Published

on

Tuesday evening’s Democratic presidential debate was an absolute dumpster fire, a complete clown show of totally epic proportions, a fact that even many Democrats and Democratic voters recognize. The whole event might as well have been a political advertisement for President Trump’s reelection campaign because the only winner to come out of the evening was definitely the current commander-in-chief. President Trump weighed in on the whole fiasco, calling the debate “crazy, chaotic,” two descriptors that fit the evening perfectly. Here’s more from the Washington Examiner: Trump sounded off on Tuesday’s debate, hosted by CBS News, on Wednesday morning in a pair of tweets upon returning to Washington, D.C., after visiting India. “Crazy, chaotic Democrat Debate last night. Fake News said Biden did well, even though he said half of our population was shot to death. Would be OVER for most,” Trump said. “Mini Mike was weak and unsteady, but helped greatly by his many commercials (which are not supposed to be allowed during a debate).” “Pocahontas was mean, & undisciplined, mostly aiming at Crazy Bernie and Mini Mike. They don’t know how to handle her, but I know she is a ‘chocker,'” Trump added. “Steyer was a disaster who, along with Mini, are setting records in $’s per vote. Just give me an opponent!” https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1232657640515342336 Tuesday’s debate was the 10th of the 2020 Democratic primary and featured seven candidates: Sens. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota, Bernie Sanders of Vermont, and Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts; former Mayors Michael Bloomberg of New York City and Pete Buttigieg of South Bend, Indiana; former Vice President Joe Biden; and billionaire Tom Steyer. After the debate was over, lots of folks had harsh words for the debate moderators, even more so than the actual candidates, for not keeping control of the situation and allowing it transform…

Schumer Calls Trump Budget Demand To Fight Coronavirus Inadequate, Requests $8.5B

Published

on

Senate Democrats don’t feel that President Trump’s $2.5 billion budget request to help fight against the spread of the coronavirus, instead seeking to pull in $8.5 billion. According to a top aide, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer “is preparing a detailed Senate request” to ask Congress for the money. Check out more from The Washington Examiner: “Expect Schumer’s request to be finalized this morning and sent to appropriators,” the aide said. Democrats on Tuesday dismissed the Trump administration’s $2.5 billion emergency funding request as far too low to prepare the nation to combat the virus in an adequate manner, given its spread in several countries. Democrats point out Congress appropriated $7 billion to battle the spread of the H1N1 virus 11 years ago. Congress is preparing to take up the supplemental spending measure soon, but the final number will have to be negotiated between Democrats and Republicans in both chambers. The House, which is currently run by Democrats, hasn’t yet proposed a spending number, but will take up the legislation first as usual. Republicans in the Senate actually agreed with their Democrat counterparts, stating the figure proposed by President Trump might be a bit too low. Regardless of where you stand on spending for this, the bottom line is that the coronavirus is pretty scary stuff and nations around the world need to be taking proper precautions to ensure the spread of this virus is contained until a vaccine and treatment can be created to prevent it from being a worldwide pandemic. The disease’s death toll has risen substantially since the outbreak began in Wuhan, China, and if we want to avoid seeing those kind of numbers here on American soil, it’s going to cost a pretty penny to put all the safety measures in place.
