Original Article

Posted By: Boliver, 12/22/2020 11:13:15 PM

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) signaled that they are open to increasing the amount for the stimulus checks after President Donald Trump threatened to veto the COVID relief bill unless the direct payment was increased to $2,000 per individual.“Republicans repeatedly refused to say what amount the President wanted for direct checks. At last, the President has agreed to $2,000—Democrats are ready to bring this to the Floor this week by unanimous consent. Let’s do it!” Pelosi wrote on Twitter on Tuesday.

They 're just adding to the debt. They probably don't give a damn that all debts must eventually be paid back. Their ancestors did it by murdering the debt holder... and let that be a forewarning for you.

Its pretty clear that nobody has any intention of paying off the debt. When it gets too high to sustain they will just cancel it. What can anyone do about it? Same thing we can do about election stealing and blackmailing a Chief Justice. Not a darned thing.

The other shoe, of course, is that the increase HAS to be offset by slashing elsewhere! Otherwise, I pray Trump vetos anyway. These slimy congress creatures all deserve to rot...there's going to be Hell to pay the way it stands.

Once again the networks are the only reason they can be so blatant about it. The filthy networks don't report on the outrageous amount of money given away or stolen for every enemy of America foreign and domestic. Maybe they would all be ducking rocks if everyone knew they are GIVING Egypt 1.3 billion and Sudan $700,000,000. Ok, some sort of mideast bribe for peace money or something, but 1 billion for the Smithsonian? It's a great set of museums, but are you kidding me? Taxpayers lose their jobs and are FORCED to close their businesses and foreign countries get billions, as well as a museum that the taxpayer can't even visit? That's not a story only stories about how difficult President Trump is being in the face of unprecedented election crimes.

After all the pork has been revealed in this monstrosity, the President should insist on a stand alone bill. Nothing that is not directly related to the COVID stimulus should be in it. I would like to see the President make a speech to that effect with a large board listing every obscene amount that is going to foreign countries and ridiculous organizations that have nothing to do with the COVID virus. Just put the facts out there for everyone to see. The American people know the political leadership of both parties in Washington DC are corrupt. It’s time to put it out there in black and white. This atmosphere of self-serving corruption must be exposed. Let them answer some questions from the A,Eric an people. After all, who do they serve their constituents or foreign countries? Expose them. I don’t care what party they are in. There is no justification for gender studies in Pakistan. Yes, I am looking at you, Lindsey Graham. Your defense of this massive give away while our own people are suffering is reprehensible.

First of all, I'm not for this stimulus bill at all. Just open up the nation and let small business get back to work. But if it must be done, throw out all the padding of money for special interests and foreign countries. These special interests and foreign countries have NOTHING to do with our COVID. If done, the new stimulus bill will be smaller then the original $900 Billion. President Trump said that he wanted the special interests and foreign countries out of this bill. He wanted it for the U.S. people.

The point here, folks, is a lot bigger than posted concerns about the national debt. The point is, the Congress has made it clear that they are willing to foot the globalist agenda and may the middle of America, the working class, rot in hell. The second and not unrelated point is: President Trump has still got our backs; DO YOU HAVE HIS?

Some of my fellow l dotters will be able to relate to this. When you go to Disneyworld, you quickly have to suspend reality when it comes to money and costs of things. We haven't been there in 20 years, but even then, prices were shocking. Lunch for four at the Rain Forest Cafe was 100 dollars, and the waitress brought the printed bill with a 15 per cent gratuity automatically added, plus a space for the tip, and when I handed her cash, she said, "Do you want your change?" We have entered a Disneyworld governance. All I can do is sit back and enjoy - and purchase gold coins with the free money.

First, STRIP OUT the foreign aid! This is a COVID bill, not payments from very hard-working .American taxpayers! Second, the Golden Goose has been stopped from earning money, OPEN OUR BUSINESSES, e.g., restaurants. They will thrive when citizens have earned money by working to pay for services such as food and travel. We cannot afford to finance the rest of the world. Teach them to fish, as in earn your own way, provide for your own lives. Third, stop with the “studies / research” projects that only enrich participants and accomplish nothing at all! These people couldn’t conduct a one car funeral. Kudos to those who stood up and voted against this behemoth money drain!

The real story is the offsets that will be needed to accommodate the $2000 individual grants. Legislators were given only a couple of hours to digest a 5600 page document, so most of them probably didn't know what they were voting on. Now that the outrageously dirty details are starting to come out, it looks to me like they should start over from scratch.

Hey dems how did you like your socialism this year? Gov't telling us who is "essential"(I think we are ALL essential). Which businesses can flourish while others fail. (depending on if you voted for them). Now you get $600 of your own money while they send 700 Billion of YOUR money to other countries. THIS is socialism. Hope you love it. You support it.

Now that Pelosi and Schumer have jumped on the $2000 bid, Trump needs to pull the rug out from under them by saying "Only on a stand-alone bill, or I will not sign." Then the Dems will have not only tried to use our money to fund their socialist agenda (and prop up foreign countries at our expense), they will have stolen $2000 from the pocket every American. Not a good look, idiots.

Keep in mind that every dump of money on a foreign country is the setup for kickbacks, direct and indirect. The corrupt Democrats-- and Republicans-- are actually paying themselves via the stimulus bill. Washington is a pig sty, a swamp, Augean stables. I never dreamed the corruption was so vast until I saw the AG come right out and approve the theft of an election, and the Supreme Court show themselves to be utter cowards. What a disgrace for all of them except Alito and Thomas, but especially the three Trump nominated and fought for-- Kavanaugh, Gorsuch and Barrett! I loathe the Democrats, but I feel even more contempt for the Republicans. Watch the video of President Trump explaining the stolen election and you see one courageous man making a stand against a horde of villains.

Consider this: a $900B stimulus bill, divided by 300M people, should result in $3K per person. If SOME people (not all) are to get $600 per person, where is the rest of the money going ? Much of it is going overseas. Exactly hoe does sending money to Pakistan help the average American who has lost their job due to government edicts ?

People, please e-mail the White House, ask President Trump to veto this bill. Billions to be spent (wasted/thrown away ) that have nothing to do with covid relief. A raise from $600 to $2000 does not placate or shut up people that know about the billions that the professional politicians want for their pet projects and ideologies.

Some math to consider: 300,000 people x $600 = $180,000,000 $2,000,000,000 - $180,000,000 = $1,820,000,000 Only 9% would be for Covid relief for the people. For every $100 of debt per person, they would get $9. Who would get the other $91 ? This is Pelosi's and the Democrat's idea of "significant" relief. Heaven help us!

We have a Congress that has not submitted or passed a budget in almost forever. It is one of their most important duties. American Citizens of all stripes should demand that Congress submit a budget for approval, after being made available for taxpayers to peruse. Also taxpayers should scream until Any spending package or budget gives the President the power of Line Item Veto. If Congress can't submit a clean bill. then the President should have the duty.

Once again, a headline that lies. Nothing is agreed upon until signatures are in ink. Then there is the issue of removing the rotten pork and replacing it with more stimulus money, not IN ADDITION to the pork. Having no help to small businesses, it will not fly with the American people.

At last, the President has agreed to $2,000—Democrats are ready to bring this to the Floor this week by unanimous consent. Let’s do it!” Pelosi wrote on Twitter on Tuesday.

Flare-ups from Australia to Japan show the world hasn’t learned an early lesson from the coronavirus crisis: to stop the spread, those with mild or symptom-free coronavirus infections must be forced to isolate, both from their communities and family.(SNIP)But lessons from Italy, South Korea and others that have successfully contained large-scale outbreaks show that there’s a tried-and-tested approach to cutting off transmission: move them out of their homes into centralized facilities while they get over their infections, which usually doesn’t require longer than a few weeks.

Republican Senator Pat Toomey said Sunday morning Donald Trump will be remembered as a president of 'chaos and misery and erratic behavior' if he doesn't sign the $900 billion coronavirus relief bill by midnight. 'You don't always get what you want, even if you are the president of the United States,' the Pennsylvania senator said in reference to Trump's demand for $2,000 stimulus checks. Toomey said during his interview with 'Fox News Sunday' that he opposes the president's proposed increase of direct checks to $2,000 from the $600 price tag already included in the most recent bipartisan coronavirus relief legislation.

Two governors said Sunday it’s fine if President Trump wants bigger stimulus checks for Americans, but he must sign a $2 trillion coronavirus relief and government funding package and then fight for the extra cash. “Sign the bill, get it done. And then if the president wants to get more, let’s get that done, too,” Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan, a Republican, told CNN’s “State of the Union.” “The president needs to sign it.”(Snip) Rep. Adam Kinzinger, Illinois Republican, said the nation has been “put in a lurch” after Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin negotiated $600 checks, only for the president to demand more after the fact.

Saturday was a day ending with a “Y,” so that meant Kamala Harris was pandering to another valued Democrat identity group. Saturday’s pander was to those blacks who have embraced Kwanzaa, an anti-white, anti-Christian, Marxist holiday that began to gain mass adherence within the black community in the 1980s and 1990s. Kamala’s tweet honoring the holiday, of course, was as false as all her other pander stories have been, whether she’s talking about smoking pot and listening to Tupac in college or making inane comments about Hanukkah. Kwanzaa is not a traditional African holiday.

On January 6, a joint session of Congress will open with Vice President Pence presiding as president of the Senate. His power will be plenary and unappealable. You heard that right. As president of the Senate, every objection comes directly to him, and he can rule any objection "out of order" or "denied." His task will be to fulfill his oath of office to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States and to ensure that the laws be faithfully executed. This is a high standard of performance, and V.P. Pence will have two choices.
