The Hill: How to bail out American workers in a crisis: Enact payroll and income tax holidays

In this crisis, no American was at fault. But all Americans are at risk.

It's worth taking a moment to understand why this crisis is not like anything we've seen in the past, whether in 2008 or the century prior.

You've often heard the term "GDP," or gross domestic product, as a measurement for how the economy grows. Economists break down GDP into four parts:

Consumption - Purchases by individuals of goods and services;

Investment - Purchases by businesses giving them increased capacity to offer their products;

Government spending - Local, state or federal government purchases of any good or service;

Net exports - The difference between the value of exports going out of the U.S. and the value of imports coming in.

As you probably guessed, consumption, which makes up nearly 70 percent of U.S. GDP, is the problem. With shutdowns taking place across cities and towns nationwide, going out to restaurants, gathering in stadiums, heading to the mall or to the gym are all, for now, out of the economic picture. And, as every payment is somebody else's income, this forced austerity is a big hit to small businesses, who need to pay leases and other debt obligations during this time.

It's a tough situation - but just as consumption is the problem, consumption can also be the solution.

Fox News: David Bossie: Americans uniting to fight coronavirus, just as we united to fight World War II

Even in this time of bitter partisanship, Democrats and Republicans in Congress are finding common ground and joining with President Trump in a bipartisan effort to respond to the surprise attack on our health and our economy by the coronavirus pandemic.

In order to defeat the Chinese coronavirus, the American people must step up to the plate and be prepared to sacrifice as an earlier generation did in the 1940's to defeat the scourge of Nazism and fascism. America entered World War II after Japan attacked our forces at Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941. Now we’ve been attacked by a microscopic enemy, but the threat is just as grave.

In the 1940s, members of our greatest generation put their lives on hold in order to defend a shared ideal: freedom. They rallied around the American flag by working in factories to build war supplies; they left their families; they went to battle on foreign lands and seas; and over 400,000 didn’t come home because they made the ultimate sacrifice.

It was through a strong belief in God that America persevered during those extraordinarily trying times.

The patriotism and honor of these heroic men and women gave us countless examples of American Exceptionalism. People of every nationality remain in awe of what the American people did even three-quarters of a century later.

Fox News: David Bossie: After Super Tuesday, socialist Sanders and Biden go to war peddling failed policies

Super Tuesday primary results – where 1,357 delegates were at stake – make it clear that the fight for the Democratic presidential nomination is far from over. It’s going to be a long, nasty, divisive slog all the way to the Democratic National Convention in Milwaukee in July.

With his campaign-salvaging win in the South Carolina primary Saturday, former Vice President Joe Biden has managed to use that momentum to get many of the failed candidates from the Democratic establishment to publicly back him. They are uniting in an attempt to stop the socialist candidacy of far-left Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt.

Biden picked up endorsements Monday from three of his former Democratic opponents in the presidential nomination race: Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota; former South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg; and former Rep. Beto O’Rourke of Texas. Klobuchar and Buttigieg ended their presidential bids this week, while O’Rourke dropped out of the nomination race Nov. 1.

Fox News projected that Biden was the winner in Texas, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Virginia, Tennessee, Alabama, North Carolina, Arkansas, and Oklahoma.

Fox News projected Sanders was the winner of the state with the biggest delegate haul – California. He easily won his home state of Vermont and also came out on top in Utah and Colorado.

Fox News: David Bossie: Trump wins debate as Democrats fight among themselves, focusing attacks on Sanders and Bloomberg

Tuesday night’s Democratic presidential debate in South Carolina was a pressure-packed fight between seven far-left candidates. It was dominated by efforts to slow front-runner socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders’ charge to the party’s presidential nomination and to stop billionaire Mike Bloomberg from buying the nomination.

Former New York City Mayor Bloomberg, in his just his second debate appearance, failed miserably to bounce back from his epically weak debate performance last week in Nevada.

The hundreds of millions of dollars Bloomberg is spending on television and digital advertising can’t obscure the fact that he’s a disaster on the debate stage and can’t handle the hand-to-hand combat and incoming fire from other candidates.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., resumed her role as Bernie Sanders’ chief defender in what looks like a not-so-veiled attempt to be chosen as his vice presidential pick if he is nominated to run against President Trump.

Sanders’ irresponsible $60 trillion in economy-destroying spending proposals – like the lie he calls “Medicare-for-all” – were even too much for the ultra-liberal candidates on the debate stage.

Fox News: David Bossie: Desperate Dems face dilemma: Embrace flawed Bloomberg and his billions, or seek to destroy him?

The 2020 Democratic presidential primary contest is a slow-motion train wreck.  After almost a year of campaigning – complete with debates, town halls, hundreds of millions of dollars spent on advertising, and a biased media promoting their out-of-the-mainstream agenda – the crew of far-left Democratic presidential candidates remains stuck in mediocrity, with no one able to break out of the pack.

It’s become abundantly clear why the do-nothing Democrats in Congress – led by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of California – have been so focused on impeachment hoaxes and never-ending partisan investigations of President Trump. The truth is that they don’t want the public to pay attention to their looming electoral disaster.

The muddled results for Democrats from the Iowa caucuses and the New Hampshire primary earlier this month have only made matters worse. In fact, the situation has gone from bad to horrific. The winners of the first two Democratic nominating contests are Pete Buttigieg, a 38-year old former mayor of a small Indiana city of 100,000, and Sen. Bernie Sanders, a socialist career politician from Vermont – a state with a population of about 620,000.

Buttigieg and Sanders won by slim and unconvincing margins. The Democratic Party’s earlier supposed front-runner – former Vice President Joe Biden – can barely string together a coherent sentence and has been exposed as a corrupt swamp creature. The fading campaign of Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts is taking on water and sinking fast. Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota, the surprise third-place finisher in New Hampshire, is a totally unspectacular backbencher.

Due to this incredibly weak field of candidates, establishment Democrats are frantically trying to get their primary voters to give former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg a serious look. Mini Mike – as President Trump has aptly nicknamed him – represents everything the left despises. Bloomberg is a billionaire – 60 times over – who is trying to buy the 2020 election and drown out the voices of everyday Americans. Bloomberg governed as “Mayor Stop and Frisk” and even voiced support for throwing kids up against the wall to find out if they’re carrying guns.

Fox News: David Bossie: Socialist Sanders’ NH victory shows left-wing radicals are pushing Dems in dangerous direction

Results of Tuesday’s New Hampshire Democratic primary provide little clarity in the crowded race for the party’s presidential nomination that is being dominated by socialism, chaos and a pathetic field of left-wing candidates.

Fox News projected that career politician and socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont was the narrow winner of the primary. Former South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg came in a strong second, followed by Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota in third place.

Darkhorse candidates Andrew Yang and Sen. Michael Bennet of Colorado dropped out of the race Tuesday night after poor performances in New Hampshire and in the Iowa caucuses last week, but nine Democrats remain in the nomination battle, preventing any one candidate from garnering a majority of the primary votes.

Sanders’ victory tells us he is gaining momentum among a small plurality of Democratic primary and caucus voters in the opening rounds of the competition to become the Democratic nominee who will run against President Trump in November.

With 86 percent of precincts reporting, Sanders had close to 26 percent of the vote in the New Hampshire Democratic primary – a far cry from the 60 percent he received when he defeated Hillary Clinton in the Granite State in 2016. Buttigieg had just over 24 percent and Klobuchar had almost 20 percent.

Fox News: David Bossie: Trump SOTU address showcases success of his America First policies

Under the leadership of President Trump, the state of our union is as strong as it has ever been – and the best is yet to come.

The president walked into the well of the U.S. House of Representatives Tuesday night for his third State of the Union address with great purpose and a message of hopeful optimism that America’s best days are still ahead of us. His speech was a showcase for American exceptionalism.

There are countless reasons for Americans to feel optimistic about the future, because we are better off today than we were four years ago. We’re in the midst of the great American comeback – but the Democrats and their allies in the anti-Trump media can’t come to grips with that reality.

The stark contrast between President Trump’s extraordinarily successful tenure in office and the agenda-less Democratic Party’s utter disarray – from the impeachment circus to the Iowa caucus fiasco – is undeniable.

Trump and the Republicans are thriving, while the entire Democratic establishment is falling apart at the seams. Independent voters are taking note.

Fox News: David Bossie: In Trump impeachment trial, Senate Republicans should block testimony by Bolton and others

President Trump’s defense team in his Senate impeachment trial rested its case Tuesday after a forceful, convincing and professional presentation of the facts that showed the president committed no crime and did absolutely nothing rising to the level of an impeachable offense.

The American people know this entire pathetic impeachment undertaking is a political attack by radicalized Democrats out to meddle in the 2020 election.

Democrats know they have no answer for President Trump’s success story and the great American comeback we’ve seen unfold over the past three years because of his leadership. So House Democrats impeached him and put him on trial in the Senate to hurt his reelection chances.

Facts are stubborn things and for four months the facts of this partisan impeachment hoax haven’t changed.

First and foremost, in the spirit of transparency, the president did something no other chief executive would have done. He proactively released the transcript of his July 25 routine phone call with the Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky that showed no quid pro quo was discussed.

Fox News: David Bossie: Supreme Court 'Citizens United' decision still protects the First Amendment 10 years later

On the 10th anniversary of Citizens United’s landmark Supreme Court victory for free speech, its incredible impact and legacy has come into focus. At its core, the Citizens United decision encourages more participation in America’s political process.

Much to the dismay of the left, Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission was a case about free speech and whether the First Amendment protected the American people from government attempts to limit speech. Nothing more, nothing less.

The origins of the case begin with Citizens United’s ability to produce a film and run advertisements for a film critical of Hillary Clinton. At that time, the McCain-Feingold campaign finance regime would have jailed me for doing just that — a fact that the left purposefully omits from their flawed arguments against the Supreme Court’s opinion.

In 2004, I recognized that liberal activist and filmmaker Michael Moore had produced a documentary, "Fahrenheit 9/11," a film highly critical of then- President George W. Bush. While the film had a huge impact on the campaign, it was Moore’s television trailers supporting the film — produced with corporate Hollywood money — that truly affected the Bush reelection effort.

I simply asked the Federal Election Commission if I could do what Michael Moore was doing. The FEC told me "no." If I moved forward anyway, I could face five years in jail for each count, as well as tens of thousands in fines. To this day, I still can’t believe that our federal government was going to jail me for making a movie and running advertisements for a film.

Wash Times: Bossie/Boos: Revisiting the landmark Citizens United v. FEC decision

In the 10 years since the U.S. Supreme Court handed down its landmark decision in Citizens United v. FEC, history has proven the ruling’s chief critics completely wrong about its impact on American democracy.

The ruling did not usher in an era of unrestrained corporate campaign spending that drowned out the voices of ordinary Americans. Instead, by opening up alternative funding sources, Citizens United and its progeny have helped our democracy to flourish by taking power from the establishment political elites and their news media cronies, and made it possible for outsider candidates, such as Donald Trump, to effectively compete for votes in the American political arena.

Before the ink even had a chance to dry, The New York Times, itself a corporation, fired off an editorial decrying the decision, saying it “thrust politics back to the robber-baron era of the 19th century.” President Barack Obama in his 2010 State of the Union address a few days later claimed the court’s ruling “will open the floodgates for special interests — including foreign corporations — to spend without limit in or elections.”

As our new film on Citizens United discusses, in the decade that has followed, none of this has come to pass. Yes, corporations may lawfully play a role in American elections, but their financial impact has been quite small compared to other funding sources.

A Report by the Committee for Economic Development of The Conference Board summed it up as follows: No major corporation has spent money independently in support of a candidate. Only two companies in 2014 and 10 in 2016 made independent expenditures from corporate funds, and these companies spent relatively miniscule amounts.

Even when it comes to the funding of so-called Super PACs, groups that can accept unlimited contributions from corporations as well as individuals, corporate funding amounted to just 5 percent of those groups’ receipts in 2014 and 6 percent in 2016. This is hardly the Genesis flood of corporate funding that the decision’s critics predicted.
