Georgia U.S. Senate Appointee Kelly Loeffler is a Corporate Welfare Queen, Reaps Benefit From Tens of Millions in Crony Deals

This is in addition to donating to Democrats and indirectly supporting abortion.

WNBA team owner Kelly Loeffler will be appointed to the U.S. Senate at the end of the year to replace departing Sen. Johnny Isakson, and Georgia Governor Brian Kemp will make the official announcement on Wednesday.

Loeffler is getting picked over President Donald Trump’s preferred choice, Rep. Doug Collins, who has a strong conservative voting record in the U.S. House. In addition to being a long-time Democratic Party donor and serving on the board of the state’s largest abortion provider, Loeffler also has benefited from crony capitalism due to her association with the violent lesbianic thugs of the WNBA.

The WNBA franchise co-owned by Loeffler, the Atlanta Dream, will be hosted in the Gateway Center Arena starting in 2020. This new venue cost the taxpayers $46.5 million, and stands as a heinous example of cronyism that serves no benefit to the people.

Sports columnist Tom Joyce wrote an op/ed with the Washington Examiner explaining how Loeffler’s grift is harmful to the public at large. He explained that the city of College Park, the small city which hosts the arena, looted their general fund of $9 million to build the facility. Mayor Jack Longino admits that the stadium will not make money for the town, but Loeffler and other team owners will certainly cash out from it.

“We’re not doing it because we’re building stupid arenas for professional teams,” said John Duke, who unsuccessfully challenged Longino for Mayor in November. “No business person would ever take this deal.”

According to the work of Stanford economist Roger Noll, sports stadiums are always terrible investments for the taxpayer, and would be paid for otherwise by the rich team owners. Joyce notes that Loeffler’s unprofitable WNBA team is being doubly-subsidized, making her a welfare queen par excellence.

“Part of the reason why the WNBA exists today is because it is subsidized by the NBA. The league as a whole has never made a profit. Interest in the league is low, with league-wide regular season attendance falling in the past two seasons,” Joyce wrote.

“Calling a taxpayer-funded arena home is nothing new for the Dream. Gateway Center Arena will be the fourth publicly funded stadium that the Dream has called home during Loeffler’s ownership,” he added.

For pilfering the taxpayer, Loeffler will now be rewarded with a U.S. Senate seat. Even though President Trump is now its figurehead, the Republican Party establishment continues its unethical and disreputable practices.

Pelosi is Emboldened by Coronavirus Bailout, Vows to Dupe Republicans Harder Next Time

The Democrats’ socialist agenda is winning big during the coronavirus panic.

Published

on

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) pulled the wool over the eyes of President Donald Trump and Congressional Republicans with last week’s $2 trillion coronavirus stimulus package. The disaster relief money was earmarked for many liberal pet projects, and Pelosi aims to do the same thing for the next round of bailouts.

She said on Monday that House Democrats are already preparing another massive stimulus bill, using the coronavirus pandemic to enact more socialism. She is likely to include massive infrastructure spending and serious government intervention into the health care markets in the upcoming legislation.

“Our first bills were about addressing the emergency. The third bill was about mitigation. The fourth bill would be about recovery. Emergency, mitigation, recovery,” Pelosi said during a conference call.

“I think our country is united in not only wanting to address our immediate needs — emergency, mitigation, and the assault on our lives and livelihoods — but also, how we recover in a very positive way,” she added.

Republican leaders are up in arms about how Pelosi is exploiting a crisis to get her partisan agenda muscled through Congress, but it is unclear if they have the courage to actually stop her.

“They’re approaching it — it seems like — as an opportunity to pass their political and ideological agenda. We’re approaching it as, ‘How do we protect the public health and our economy?’ And those are pretty divergent goals,” Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) said.

Pelosi is eager to exploit the coronavirus crisis quickly and use the panic and fear in the public as an excuse to massively increase government spending and control.

“I do think that it is really important that as soon as we are here, we are ready to pass legislation,” she said.

President Donald Trump and Congressional Republicans did Pelosi’s bidding when they moved forward a $2 trillion bailout bill that included funding for liberal policy goals that had nothing to do with the coronavirus.

Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) sounded the alarm over the sham and attempted to get Congress to actually deliberate and vote on the bill. It instead passed on a voice vote with most legislators sequestered away from Washington D.C.

Massie’s principled stand against Pelosi’s profligate spending bill earned him a tongue lashing from President Trump, who now wants Massie replaced in Congress because he’s too conservative.

With no Republicans seemingly willing to stand up against Pelosi, there will likely be more bailout socialism on the way as the Democrats use coronavirus for their far-left power grabs.
