Ted Cruz Reveals The Real Reason Left So Desperately Wants Schools To Stay Closed This Fall

(Liberty Bell) – Despite the good news that the death rate is dropping from the coronavirus across the country and that new cases popping up aren’t as severe as those that occurred when the illness first starting spreading like wildfire across the nation, the radical left in America still wants to try and shut everything down for a second time.

This has lots of folks on both sides of the aisle questioning why that is. Especially since another lockdown would cause economic disaster and ruin that would be far more devastating than the effects of the virus. Why would they be so desperate to see that happen in our beloved country.

Donald Trump.

That’s why.

Liberals are desperate to get rid of him this fall, to ensure that Democrats defeat him soundly in the November election. They are willing to do whatever it takes, including destroy the economy.

But that’s not all.

According to Sen. Ted Cruz, this same strategy is being applied to the drive to keep schools shuttered this fall.

Here’s more on this from Fox News:

Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz on Sunday accused Democrats of deliberately seeking to extend coronavirus lockdowns of businesses and schools so that President Trump suffers politically ahead of the presidential election.

Democratic-aligned teachers’ unions have remained opposed to opening schools. In Los Angeles, the teachers’ union has made overtly political demands as part of its reopening plan, including defunding the police, taxing the wealthy, implementing a moratorium on charter schools, providing “Medicare-for-all,” and obtaining more federal funding.

“We’re 100 days out from the presidential election — the only objective Democrats have is to defeat Donald Trump,” Cruz told CBS News’ “Face the Nation,” anchored by Margaret Brennan. “And they’ve cynically decided [the] best way to defeat Donald Trump is shut down every business in America, shut down every school in America.”

“We’re 100 days out from the presidential election, the only objective Democrats have is to defeat Donald Trump and they’ve cynically decided best way to defeat @realDonaldTrump is shut down every business in America, shut down every school in America.” — @tedcruz

Cruz specifically took issue with Democrats’ plan for a new coronavirus relief bill, which Congress is expected to take up this week. Brennan noted that top Republicans and the White House have also signaled support for a new round of stimulus relief, including $1,200 stimulus checks and tax credits for businesses. Top White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow also suggested Sunday the White House would extend the federal eviction moratorium.

But, Cruz urged them to focus on a broader recovery bill.

“The policy that [House Speaker] Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats are pushing adds an additional $600 a week of federal money to unemployment,” Cruz said. “Except, the problem is, for 68 percent of people receiving it right now, they are being paid more on unemployment than they made in their job.”

That was a concern that some Republicans voiced back in March, although it prompted some skepticism from economic analysts urging for a quick jumpstart to the economy. (“The weird thing about this hypothetical ‘generous unemployment pay will discourage people from entering critical industries’ is… they could just raise wages?” Alex Godofsky wrote on Twitter at the time. “Amazon has already raised wages. Like, it’s okay if wages — and prices — go up for a while. It’s fine.”)

On Sunday, though, Cruz said the problem has become more than hypothetical.

“And I’ll tell you, I’ve spoken to small business owners all over the state of Texas who are trying to reopen and they’re calling their waiters and waitresses, they’re calling their busboys, and they won’t come back,” Cruz continued. “And, of course, they won’t come back because the federal government is paying them, in some instances, twice as much money to stay home.”

Cruz then suggested an alternative measure, arguing in favor of a major payroll tax cut and tossing out the current economic restrictions that are in place. While Brennan has suggested that step would be taken sometime in the future, Cruz said this is something we need to think about doing immediately.

“What we ought to focus on, instead of just shoveling trillions out the door, we ought to be passing a recovery bill. Now, what’s a recovery bill? A recovery bill would be lifting the taxes and the regulations that are hammering small businesses so that people can go back to work. A recovery bill would suspend the payroll tax, which would give it a — a pay raise to everyone in America who’s working. That actually gets people back to work.”

The bottom line, folks, is the radical left is terrified of having four more years of Donald Trump as president. He’s a man they cannot control, unlike previous presidents going back to Reagan, who they had in their hip pockets — including some Republicans too — and could easily manipulate into allowing them to place socialistic infrastructure in our government brick-by-brick.

That ended with this billionaire outsider named Donald Trump. Trump doesn’t need their money. He has plenty already. He doesn’t need their accolades, their high praise, and is willing to suffer through the constant barrage of hatred and opposition he receives from the media because he’s always been hated by the media. This has prepared him for this battle.

It scares them that their plans might be laid to waste by him. It’s no wonder they are desperate to use this virus as a weapon.

  1. Richard you’re the scum who wants everything for free but sits on your ass and lets others work. The trouble is people are smart and will quit working so you can’t get the money you think you deserve. Your pathetic and need to take your ass to Venezuela, China or North Korea and take your benefactors with you!

  2. The “November Virus” will mysteriously end in the fall. Maybe the placebo vaccines will miraculously cure everyone on Nov 6th. Perhaps the vaccine will be a time bomb for the next time a worldwide catastrophe is needed for the control so badly desired by the elite. The setup has been a long time coming. If the general population was not so dependent on the re-distribution of wealth we would not be in this predicament.

  3. It’s shocking that teachers are refusing to go to work while they can shop at a supermarket, visit a doctor or nurse, enjoy police protection, etc. — all provided by people who ARE willing to work.
    Maybe the police need to start campaigning to defund the teachers– an appropriate response to the teacher unions.

  4. I’ve been saying that since the beginning that Democrats are keeping states closed so the economic numbers aren’t as good. It’s purely political, I don’t believe for one minute that a Democrat cares one bit about the people they are over.

  5. It is funny the hue and cry I read about, hear of on a daily basis. To me, this whole schlamielle falls upon each and every American. You want things to run right? Smoooooth? consistent? Equal? Then get up off of your fat lazy asses and actually do something constructive-like really check out the ‘political stockyards’ for the ‘Best and the Brightest’, as David Halberstam’s book suggested. You people seem to forget the phrase; ‘of the people, by the people, and for the people’… It’s real, y’know. It’s yours, y’know. Ask any Veteran who swore an oath to protect it-and the rest of the Constitution from all enemies, both foreign and domestic.
    Remember; YOU can-and should-control the destiny of this great and wonderful country; you do this by treating each and every political candidate-from two-bit ward healer to the President with the same astute consideration as would any other BOSS of a CORPORATION! It is, y’know…

  6. They need to keep the Public “CHINESE PROPAGANDA” Schools CLOSED…Parents, see to it that your Kids are getting Taught at Home, as it has been, or get them into other Schools, just NOT Public Schools anymore…It will take time to get our Schools BACK from the COMMIECRATS – DERANGED LIBTARDS……!!!!

  7. If someone is offered their job back and they refuse, they should be cut off from unemployment. It was sufficient for them when they worked. They should have used their unemployed time going on-line to improve themselves and look for a better job. Pointless to pay someone who wants to stay home.

  8. The dummycrats don’t seem to realize that they could be putting their teacher buddies out of a job. I’ve read where some children prefer learning at home because of less distractions. Then there’s also parent who will set up a type of block party scholl with neighborhood children and a few parents teaching, like out of a garage or basement, while giving other parents the chance to go to work. And home schooling is also on the increase and new interest in private schools is taking hold. The NEA may end up being a weak useless union for the dummycrats. This may even be the issue to force school choice in all states. I see more advantages to leaving the public propaganda schools closed. They don’t real teacher anything of value anymore.

  9. Can’t wait for covid to end on November 15. No more fake news reporting the infection and death toll like it’s the latest baseball score, schools and businesses safe to open; we can finally get back to living our lives.
    Of course the China bug won’t be going away but with our President in place for four more years all the political bs will, hopefully, go away and the libs will move on to their next scheme.

    • Ah but that depends on who wins doesn’t it. If Biden win’s it’s magically over by time he takes oath. If Trump wins the virus worsens and more riots until they can come up with another impeachment idea that they can hope to sneak through and stick.

  10. As much as I am concerned about the horrible rise in the number of coronavirus cases in Alabama over the last few weeks, the thought of an out of control election going in the wrong direction is fearful. But my word9 to Alabamians and all other stubbornly selfish people in the South is CARE MORE ABOUT OTHERS. Don’t just hang a mask around your chin. Otherwise the bottom of your nostrils and your mouth. What you’re doing protects no one. I get hot too. My glasses fog up too. BUT I will protect you. Please return the favor and protect me.

    • Alabaman aren’t smart enough and patriotic enough to heed your words, they are following their cult leader’s actions, Mobster-in-Chief Trump

    • What is your evidence? Are you making your mask-wearing conditions based on someone you trust? Or are you following the crowds of lemmings virtue-signaling “we’re all together”?
      Care more about others? You fear infection?
      “Cases” will continue to ‘show up’ because there is more and more testing. The virus is already EVERYWHERE. The only way to prove that is testing.
      No one has escaped the virus, just like no one escapes influenza EVRY year.
      98.8% of all infected with coronavirus recover, just like having the flu. Many don’t bother going to any clinic or hospital, but you don’t see that being reported. The flu actually kills 10% of infected people, including small children. Cornoavirus does not affect small children the same way.
      Coronavirus does appear to infect the elderly more often than younger populations, but that does not mean you’ll die just because you are old. Most deaths occur in those with other health conditions, namely obesity and diabetes 1 & 2. It seems to like blood fats.
      Look at the death rates, percentages, and classes/age groups. They ARE declining, despite what the media alludes – with all their “cases” reporting. The CDC is posting the actual “numbers” of deaths, but even they say the ‘counting’ may “have some discrepancies” (probably a reference for all the hospitals who test and retest patients as ‘new cases’).
      A meta-analysis found that face masks had no detectable effect against transmission of viral infections. “Compared to no masks, there was no reduction of influenza-like illness cases or influenza for masks in the general population, nor in healthcare workers.”
      Randomized controlled trials of face masks did not support a substantial effect on transmission of laboratory-confirmed influenza, either when worn by infected persons (source control) or by persons in the general community to reduce their susceptibility.
      Another recent review found that masks had no effect specifically against Covid-19, and only “very slightly reduced” odds of developing influenza-like illness.
      Face mask use was likewise found to be not protective against the common cold, compared to controls without face masks among healthcare workers (the people who have to wear the things all the time).
      A 2019 study of 2862 participants showed that both N95 respirators and surgical masks “resulted in no significant difference in the incidence of laboratory confirmed influenza.”
      A study of 44 mask brands found most medical masks had over 20% penetration, while “general masks and handkerchiefs had no protective function in terms of the aerosol filtration efficiency.” The study found that “Medical masks, general masks, and handkerchiefs were found to provide little protection against respiratory aerosols.”
      In another study, penetration of cloth masks by particles was almost 97% and medical masks 44%.
      Honeywell is a manufacturer of N95 respirators. These are made with a 0.3 micron filter. N95 respirators are so named, because 95% of particles having a diameter of 0.3 microns are filtered by the mask forward of the wearer, by use of an electrostatic mechanism.
      Coronaviruses are approximately 0.125 microns in diameter.
      The Honeywell study found that 624 out of 714 people wearing N95 masks left visible gaps when putting on their own masks (not worn right, so why bother?).
      The surgeons’ masks were found to give no protective effect to the patients.
      Other studies found no difference in wound infection rates with and without surgical masks.
      With most masks STILL being made in CHINA, are they SAFE?
      Mandating masks, knowing they could be contaminated, is a sure-fire way of eliminating a population you don’t like . . .
      Studies have also shown wearing any mask all day can make you sick from carbon monoxide poisoning; FROM simply breathing!

      “There is a lack of substantial evidence to support claims that facemasks protect either patient or surgeon from infectious contamination.”
      If face masks will not protect a SURGEON, or their PATIENTS, why do WE NEED to WEAR a MASK?

      The demons want us to wear masks everywhere, even in our homes and cars, because the more you wear a mask, the longer it will take for “herd-immunity” to occur. Herd-immunity is when the virus mutates within a population to the point the population is no longer effective as a host. Viruses mutate at lightning-speed. The sooner herd-immunity occurs, the faster we go back to normal.
      The demons NEED the virus until November, so they’ll have a somewhat plausible excuse to stall or alter elections.

  11. There is a plus in not opening government run schools. This will shorten the exposure of children to the twisted dogma of NEA goose steppers. There are other ways to grow and develop life long skills than learning how to put condoms on cucumbers.

    • You are the Nazis Litchfield, not the NEA or any Democrats. The Nazis and all the white supremacist groups not only support Trump many salute the punk.

  12. If the democrats get control this country as we knew it will be gone. Look at how many cities are being destroyed as it is. This is all in an attempt to get rid of this President. This must not happen and those democratic lifers in Washington must be replaced or we might not even recover from this mess. There is no limit to are far they will go to bring down this President as you can see every night on the news. We MUST STOP THEM before it’s to late.
