us’

Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick is calling on Congress to show solidarity with Americans hurt by the coronavirus crisis and take a pay cut. With millions of people across the nation facing financial hardship due to government decisions to shut down the economy, Patrick believes members of Congress who “are not hurt” by the same constraints should stand with citizens, telling Fox News host Laura Ingraham that it’s high time lawmakers in Washington “feel some of this pain.” The Republican lawmaker noted on “The Ingraham Angle” Friday that Texans are ready to get back to work and a slow, safe reopening is being planned by state officials.

Amen to that, especially the leftists blocking help for small businesses!!

Bravo to our Lt. Governor. It is a shame that not one of our many Christians Senators or Congressmen have not stepped forward weeks ago with this idea. God bless you for your stalwart leadership.

Would the pay cut negate the raise they just gave themselves in the first stimulus package?

Great idea, but the House is currently on vacation until May 4. Nancy Pelosi is eating gourmet ice cream out of her $25,000 freezer while tens of millions of Americans are out of work and small businesses are on life support.

I agree that the Republicans in both the House and Senate show up every day and ask: where are the democrats? Also, take the pay cut and challenge the democrats to do the same. Make a list, every day, of the ones that are not at work, and have not taken the pay cut! The Pandemic might end a little sooner that way...

I'm thankful that I'm still employed, But I have had a 36.5% reduction in income. My bills still have to be paid and I don't get the benefit of paid vacations whenever I decide. In fact, for at least the next 60 days all paid time off is suspended unless its an emergency. So yes, Congress should take a pay cut while they are out. Better yet, lay them off in proportion to their own states unemployment. The later and former probably just wishful thinking.

Joe Biden Advisor Tries to Blame Republicans

Posted by ladydawgfan 4/20/2020 1:17:49 PM Post Reply
I guess Joe Biden isn’t the only part of his campaign that can devolve into incoherence on a live stream, but I’d think this example isn’t a result of dementia. Rather, she’s just choosing to outright lie. Symone Sanders, who once worked for Bernie Sanders, is a senior adviser for the Biden campaign now. She “interviewed” Tony Goldwyn via one of their streaming hits and then went to Twitter to make a rather ridiculous assertion. She actually attempted to blame Republicans for the PPP money running out for small businesses.

Veteran investigative journalist Carl Bernstein said President Trump's son-in-law and adviser, Jared Kushner, played a key role in convincing the commander in chief to take more serious steps in combating the coronavirus. The Watergate sleuth told CNN colleague Chris Cuomo on Friday that Kushner, who is leading a coronavirus task force, helped sway the president in March to get serious about the pandemic, along with Drs. Anthony Fauci and Deborah Birx, as the number of cases and deaths shot up. Citing people in the White House, Bernstein said he was told Kushner "had to convince" Trump "to stop being delusional and in denial."

It has become conventional "wisdom" on the left that Russia wanted Trump to win in 2016, and therefore they helped his campaign. The latter belief was debunked by the Mueller report—though many on the left still believe it. The theory that Russia wanted Trump to win has also persisted, but newly declassified evidence suggesting that Russia was spreading false information about Donald Trump during the 2016 campaign "is calling into question the Obama administration’s intelligence assessment that Moscow was trying to help the Republican win the 2016 election," according to a report from Just The News's John Solomon.

Earlier today after I made my coffee I noticed we were a little low on milk. So I timed my grocery store run to a point in the day I figured the local HEB would be less crowded, and I went for it. The store was well-stocked, everyone was friendly and observing distance and mask requirements, and I got what I needed and got home. But what if I couldn't do that? Today I'd have had coffee black, which isn't a huge deal, but in a few days I'd have less and less to eat for myself and my family. A hungry writer is an unhappy writer.

If you weren’t convinced until now that Democrats are crazy, insane and a danger to us all, I now have clear and irrefutable proof. It’s spelled Hydroxychloroquine. That’s the anti-malaria drug that has become a miracle weapon in our arsenal to defeat Coronavirus.

They are no longer “anecdotal.” This Trump-touted drug appears very likely to be a miracle drug. I’ll get to all those stories in a moment. But first, let me mention the latest Rasmussen poll which shows that only 18% of Democrats would take hydroxychloroquine if they were sick with Coronavirus. Folks, that’s just nuts.

As the ongoing Chinese coronavirus pandemic turns out to be far less deadly than previously feared, certain segments of the population are itching to get America’s economy rolling again. Except, although we were initially told to hunker down for a few weeks to “flatten the curve,” the goalposts were moved as soon as the original goal was met. Now, a significant chunk of people seemingly want the lockdowns to last forever or until a vaccine is developed, whichever comes sooner. Interestingly, the politics behind who wants to get back to work and who wants to keep their PJs on and continue their weeks-long slumber party ad infinitum are blatantly obvious.

In a shocking essay for Harvard Magazine, a professor of law and director of Harvard Law School’s child advocacy legal clinic, claims homeschooling is a threat to children’s rights, a method of promoting white supremacy, and a drain on democratic society — and even goes so far as to suggest a national “presumptive ban” on the practice.Harvard is playing host to a “homeschooling summit,” slated to take place (at least digitally) June 18-19, according to the Daily Caller News Foundation. But Harvard’s concern isn’t so much whether homeschooling is a viable, cost-effective, and comfortable method of education for many Americans, but rather whether homeschooling is (and homeschooled children are)

Illinois Democrats are demanding $41 billion from the federal government for coronavirus relief, including $10 billion for Illinois's cash-strapped and underfunded public pension plan. The most fiscally mismanaged state in the union that has criminally neglected funding its public pension fund for two decades wants Washington to pull its chestnuts out of the fire? Certainly, states should get something. But what Illinois is asking for is shocking. Chicago Sun-Times: “I realize I’ve asked for a lot, but this is an unprecedented situation, and we face the reality that there likely will be additional, unanticipated costs that could result in future requests for assistance,”

As the president of the United States shelters in place with the White House press corps, and Joe Biden gibbers senselessly into the GoPro camera in his Delaware basement, this fall’s national election has been thrown into a cocked tricorn by the coronavirus. Many of Donald Trump’s retail-politicking strengths — the huge rallies, his command of crowds — have been neutralized, and while he still has control of the narrative from his bully pulpit in the West Wing, the national media remains dead set against him, and puts the worst possible spin on every word he speaks.

They think it hurts Trump, plus they really love wielding power over you. Just look into the dead doll eyes of Governor Karen (D-Minncounsinigan)
