Has Trump already won the election with his four new executive orders? From Tom Luongo at tomluongo.me:
President Trump won re-election this weekend with his four executive orders.
We haven’t even reached the DNC convention in Milwaukee and it looks to me like this election season is over.
I know the polls keep trying to convince me that Joe Biden, most likely suffering from dementia, is leading President Trump but I just don’t buy it.
And neither do the Democrats.
Because if they did they wouldn’t be so desperate to push through unlimited mail-in voting as their political hill to die on.
And die on it they have.
Speaker Nancy Pelosi held up a new round of stimulus legislation over this issue. The massive gap between the GOP and DNC proposals highlight only part of the political divide between the two sides (see graphic, H/T Zerohedge).
The real divide was in enshrining in law the kind of mail-in voting which would ensure near unlimited cheating and ballot harvesting which would give the Democrats their best chance at “winning the election.”
Pelosi thought she had Trump cornered on this because he had to cave to spend that $1.7 trillion he’s already collected through treasury auctions which prove the Big Lie that the dollar is about to die false.
But all he had to do was make payroll tax irrelevant for a majority of taxpayers in this country.
Go over those Executive Orders he signed. And each one attacks a core position the Democrats carve out for themselves in the public discourse.
- Defer Payroll Tax Collection — Here Trump is doing at least two things. First, he’s a Republican lowering taxes on the poor and middle class. Second, he lowers the cost of U.S. labor, cuts away red tape and makes it easier for businesses in a cash flow crunch to stay open not having to worry about paying monthly/quarterly tax payments. This attacks a core Democrat talking point, “Republicans don’t care about the little guy, we do!”
- Extend Student Loan deferments – This is one step closer to debt jubilee on debt that, again, freezes people in place, dealing with debt servicing rather than creating demand in the real economy for goods and services. This also attacks the banks who made these predatory loans, which most student loan debt is, which undermines the “Occupy Wall. St.” talking point that all the money goes to the banks.
