Here Are Some of the Most Outrageous Line
Items In Biden’s $2.2T ‘Infrastructure’ Bill

Original Article

Posted By: Imright, 4/1/2021 12:17:29 AM

President Joe Biden has introduced a gargantuan spending bill ostensibly aimed at shoring up and expanding America’s crumbling infrastructure, but as usual, there are a lot of things in the measure completely unrelated to ‘infrastructure.’To be sure, the measure would spend hundreds of billions on roads, bridges, airports, and so forth. In fact, a Washington Post analysis found that the bill earmarks $650 billion for those kinds of projects.But again, that’s just $650 billion out of $2.2 trillion. So — if this is an ‘infrastructure’ spending bill, where is the other two-thirds of the money (that we don’t have) going?

Can anyone or anything stop this madness? At the rate we are going, we will outpace Venezuela on the road to destruction. The spending is insanely irresponsible, dangerously reckless but most of all unsustainable. There is only one way this ends. The democrats are knowingly and gleefully destroying the country. And then what? When our wealth is gone, our economy is shot, inflation soars, shortages appear, is it then that the purge begins? Will these radical ideologues do what every regime has done in the history of fascism and resort to violence against their own people? If they continue down this, it is a assured. They will need a scapegoat.

The dems WANT to bring the USA down. They want us on the same level as other countries. Its what they've always done. Lower standers to squander success. Whether it be education, gov't backed industry, and welfare. They want to keep the people DOWN for Control. It's so obvious its pathetic.

It's been a while, but I took some rudimentary economics courses in college and none of this makes any sense if what I learned was accurate. Printing and borrowing money without regard to receiving money through taxation in a similar amount (especially when doing so at an insane volume) will eventually create a situation similar to that faced by the Wiemar Republic of Germany after WWI when it took a wheelbarrow full of German marks to buy a loaf of bread. And we all know what happened in Germany after that. Dems are either stupid beyond belief or inutterably evil.

It's no coincidence that Biden's wish list is an exact continuation of the reign of error started by the Obama/Jarrett clueless wish list. The money disappeared and the items on the wish list that actually made sense were not addressed. Make no mistake, ALL of the multi-trillion dollar thefts are going into pockets that have no interest in helping America. When are blacks going to figure out that they are being used as just an excuse to rob the entire population of America and they will be much worse off four years from now? They probably won't have long to worry because international interests are going to remove the incompetent boobs in Washington and we will be answering to another dictator quite soon.

This may be the ultimate in targeting the printed currency (folks it is NOT money, it is currency, stop calling it money. Gold is money. Silver is money. Ink and ones and zeroes are NOT money) at the phony name of the bill. A whopping one third is going towards infrastructure. In the recent 1.9 trillion relief bill, a whopping ten percent went towards relief. How proud they must be. On a more serious note, I see someone not being patriotic because they're not wearing two masks. Come on Dominioners, mask up. It's patriotic!

Just like the $1.9 Trillion American Rescue Plan, 2021 (AKA, COVID-19 Stimulus bill) contains less than 10% for COVID-19 relief. the $2.2T ‘Infrastructure’ Bill contains little for shoring up and expanding America’s crumbling infrastructure. Both bills contain huge amounts of wasteful, pork barrel spending that the public does not want. The Democrats love to bundle their pet pork projects, toss in a token amount for something the public wants, and then pretend that all, not a token, will be spent for the desired token.

Corporations are just going to raise their wholesale and retail prices on consumers to defray their increased tax costs. Meaning that anytime consumers purchase anything they will pay a higher cost, kinda like inflation will be back, maybe even like the Carter era where interest rates topping 17%. The Democrats always claim when they raise taxes that they are going to target their tax increases on the so-called “rich”. But that never actually never happens, because the rich through lobbying efforts always have all sorts of loopholes built into the tax laws, along with high priced tax accountants and tax lawyers who insure that their rich and famous clients actually pay the lowest amount of tax possible. So who actually pays, as always, it will be the vast, but diminishing, middle class who will pay whatever taxes the Democrats raise up, as that is where the money actually is located that the Democrats can get their hands on. If this Biden spending bill becomes law, the vast majority of the money spent will go to leftist Democrat supporting operatives and entities to spend on and support the leftist and liberal Democrat political agenda . That’s always the way it is with the Democrats. Biden has been a corrupt liberal Democrat and “UniParty” politician in DC for almost a half a century and you have to figure that he knows all that.

‘Infrastructure’ is liberal code for ‘income redistribution’. And that’s exactly what this is. Government contracts will only go to minority owned businesses.

Donald Trump Jr. and his girlfriend Kimberly Guilfoyle have just shelled out $9.7 million on a Florida mansion. And it looks like they snagged a bargain. The home was initially listed back in 2017 for a whopping $19.9 million, property records show. But after three years on-and-off the market, and a $10 million price cut, the home finally sold to Trump Jr., 43, and his gal pal, 52, who recently revealed that she already feels like she’s married to him. The sale took place two-and-a-half months after the pair made their exit from the Big Apple following the results of the 2020 election.

Georgia’s election reform legislation is pretty good. But the future of the republic is at stake, and “pretty good” isn’t good enough. Unfortunately, while the omnibus bill contains a number of laudable provisions, such as stricter ID requirements and absentee ballot safeguards, it also includes glaring flaws that could render the final product largely meaningless.Most significantly, the language used to “ban” private funding of election administration has a loophole large enough to drive a semi-truck full of ballots through. Although the legislation bars election officials from directly accepting private funding, the wording expressly allows funding to flow through “the governing authority of the county or municipality,”

Such cuts have led some departments to lay off officers, cancel recruiting classes or retreat from hiring goals.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez have pressed him to pursue $50,000 in debt relief per student.

The 10 Radical New Rules That Are

Posted by Dreadnought 4/1/2021 12:37:04 AM Post Reply
There are 10 new ideas that are changing America, maybe permanently. 1) Money is a construct. It can be created from thin air. Annual deficits and aggregate national debt no longer matter much. Prior presidents ran up huge annual deficits, but at least there were some concessions that the money was real and had to be paid back. Not now. As we near $30 trillion in national debt and 110 percent of annual GDP, our elites either believe permanent zero interest rates make the cascading obligation irrelevant, or the larger the debt, the more likely we will be forced to address needed income redistribution. 2) Laws are not necessarily binding

Bernard Goodwyn said the city of Charlottesville could take the statues down because a 1997 law protecting war memorials did not apply retroactively to statues erected before the law was passed. “In the present case, the statues were erected long before there was a statute which both authorized a city’s erection of a war memorial or monument and regulated the disturbance of or interference
