THAT WAS FAST: Schumer Says ‘Politicization of the Courts’ is a ‘Threat to Democracy and Rule of Law’

posted by Hannity Staff - 5.14.20

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer raised eyebrows on social media this week; bizarrely blasting the “politicization of the courts” just weeks after warning two Supreme Court Justices they will “pay the price” for their “awful decisions.”

“The politicization of the courts is a serious threat to our democracy. It undermines the rule of law. Sitting federal judges should not be members of political organizations like the Federalist Society,” posted Schumer on social media.

In early March, Schumer said this:

“I want to tell you Gorsuch. I want to tell you Kavanaugh. You have released the whirlwind and you will pay the price. You won’t know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions.”

AOC: Senate’s Coronavirus Stimulus Package is ‘Historic Corporate Giveaway’

posted by Hannity Staff - 3.26.20

Controversial Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez ripped the Senate’s Coronavirus stimulus package Wednesday afternoon; describing the proposal as a “historic corporate giveaway” at the expense of American workers.

“Just a reminder that there is absolutely no good reason why Senate Republicans are tying a historic corporate giveaway to getting relief money in the hands of families. They could just authorize sending checks to families today, right now, & deal with the rest. But they refuse,” posted Ocasio-Cortez on social media.

Members of the ‘Squad’ demanded a series of far-left proposals be included in the Congressional relief package to help Coronavirus victims this week; asking for the cancellation of student debt, banning of evictions, and prohibition of “executive bonuses” in the plan.

“Any rescue package must:
1) Cancel student debt
2) Fund losses for small businesses and local governments
3) Ban evictions and foreclosures
4) Ban stock buybacks and executive bonuses
We need a groundswell of support for these critical measures!” posted Omar on social media.

“The developments of this Senate relief bill are concerning. We are hearing lots of vague statements, but not a single member of Congress has seen actual bill text. It seems to give a *HALF TRILLION DOLLARS* away to big corporations, w/ few worker protections. Half a trillion,” added Rep. Ocasio-Cortez.

The White House and leaders in the US Senate agreed to a $2 trillion stimulus package to help businesses impacted by the Coronavirus Wednesday; unveiling a sweeping bipartisan plan to shore-up the economy and protect American workers.

“The White House and Senate leaders of both parties announced agreement early Wednesday on an unprecedented $2 trillion emergency bill to rush sweeping aid to businesses, workers and a health care system slammed by the coronavirus pandemic,” reports the Associated Press.

“To the American people, we say, big help, quick help is on the way,” said Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer.

The proposal now heads to the Democrat-controlled House of Representatives.

“House Democrats will now review the final provisions and legislative text of the agreement to determine a course of action,” said Speaker Pelosi.

“After days of intense discussions, the Senate has reached a bipartisan agreement on a historic relief package for this pandemic,” said Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. “It will rush new resources onto the front lines of our nation’s health care fight. And it will inject trillions of dollars of cash into the economy as fast as possible to help Americans workers, families, small businesses and industries make it through this disruption and emerge on the other side ready to soar.”

BLAME GAME: Fancy Nancy Blames GOP for ‘Delaying the Bill’ After ‘Congratulating’ Dems for Blocking Aid

posted by Hannity Staff - 4.22.20

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi bizarrely blamed Sen. Mitch McConnell for blocking Coronavirus relief aid after “congratulating” Democrats in obstructing previous bills to help small businesses.

“We were very pleased that the Senate finally accepted the fact that we needed more money for testing, for hospitals, for smaller businesses… It took them a couple of weeks, but they finally did. This is the fourth bill that we’re passing,” said Pelosi.

“Mitch McConnell likes to say that we delayed the bill. No, he delayed the bill…So he was the one wasting time,” she added.

Pelosi publicly “congratulated” Senate Democrats this week after the lawmakers blocked a $250 billion relief bill aimed at American small businesses struggling during the Coronavirus pandemic.

“Last week, they asked for a quarter of a trillion dollars in 48 hours. I said, ‘I don’t think so.’ … So, Chuck Schumer and I, this all happened on the Senate side, I congratulate the Senate Democrats. They went to the floor when McConnell asked for his $250 billion, and they objected,” said Pelosi.
