that Sent $75K to Group Run by His Church

Sen. Raphael Warnock (D-GA) voted for a coronavirus stimulus package that handed $75,000 to a social justice group his church founded. The group, the Martin Luther King Sr. Collaborative, is run by the church, which compensates Warnock $120,000, according to the Washington Free Beacon. The money flowing to the Martin Luther King Sr. Collaborative raises questions about whether Warnock personally benefited from the American Rescue Plan while taxpayers shouldered the $1.9 trillion price of the bill that likely fueled 40-year-high inflation. From 2016 to at least 2020, Warnock was the CEO of Martin Luther King Sr. Collaborative, which was founded by the Ebenezer Baptist Church,


Of "forgivable" PPP loans that (surprise!) were forgiven, Poor Jared Kushner's family pocketed $3 million. Noted drunk driver/insider trader Paul Pelosi pocketed $1.7 million. Kanye West got $2.4 million, Jay-Z took $2.1 million, and Diddy took $1.9 million. Raphael Warlock snagged a mere $75,000 for a communist front group. If Mitch McConnell gets his wish and the Democrat Socialists retain their majority, wouldn't it be fitting to see Warlock as senate majority leader?

At 120K salary, Warnock also qualifies for student loan forgiveness.

Any church that took PPP money will one day regret that choice. With individuals it is actually a refund of taxes they paid. But churches never paid taxes, so it is a church allowing the government to fund their ministry! It is not a good thing to blur the lines between separation of church and state. What if the government some day wants your church to shut down again, or offer vaccines, or stop talking against abortion....and they tell you that you need to cooperate because they gave you funds?

Remember Duncan Hunter is in prison for misappropriation of campaign funds. Stephen Buyer was recently arrested. When is Warnock's court date for the "alleged" $61,000 he stole?

All these famous and rich people who got millions, makes me sick to my stomach. My sweet hairdresser who is an immigrant, had a successful salon for 40 years she lost during covid. She was denied PPP help because she rents her stations therefore they did not qualify as employees. Her and her husband would have had to mortgage their house to keep paying the high rent, ( Silicon Valley prices). And this was in the middle of the lock-down with no end in site. Now she is back renting a station herself somewhere. This is freaking criminal.

Of course he did. That is why I refer to him as Warlock. He is no more a Christian than my cat is. All of these preacher shysters are all the same. If Warlock truly were a Christian, he would be terrified of what God thinks about his lying and stealing.

Security guards at several high-end stores in the West Village and Soho say they feel like sitting ducks as thieves loot their stores in broad daylight with no consequences. The two NYC nabes—and their high-end shops—have become a target for enterprising robbers, like the group of seven men and women who sauntered into the Lululemon store on 14th Street and 9th Avenue around noon on Aug. 16 and made off with close to $30,000 in stolen goods.

Washington—Pfizer’s COVID-19 pill appears to provide little or no benefit for younger adults, while still reducing the risk of hospitalization and death for high-risk seniors, according to a large study published Wednesday. The results from a 109,000-patient Israeli study are likely to renew questions about the U.S. government’s use of Paxlovid, which has become the go-to treatment for COVID-19 due to its at-home convenience. The Biden administration has spent more than $10 billion purchasing the drug and making it available at thousands of pharmacies through its test-and-treat initiative.(Snip)But people between the ages of 40 and 65 saw no measurable benefit,

The United States is facing a looming crisis of utility shutoffs, with a record number of households falling behind on their power bills, industry observers and experts say. About 20 million US households, or one out of six homes, are behind on their utility bills, the most on record, according to the National Energy Assistance Directors Association (Neada). 'I expect a tsunami of shutoffs,' Jean Su, a senior attorney at the non-profit Center for Biological Diversity, which tracks the power industry, told Bloomberg this week. Electricity prices have soared due to rising costs for natural gas, which has skyrocketed following Russia's invasion of Ukraine in late February.

The devastation along Lake Street in Minneapolis that followed George Floyd's murder in 2020 has attracted millions of dollars of public and private money to rebuild the distinctive urban corridor. But U.S. Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg was in town Thursday to reinforce the role that public transit plays in the rebuilding. And he pointed to the federal government's $12 million grant to help Hennepin County upgrade the thoroughfare and prepare it for a new arterial bus rapid transit route called the B Line that will debut in 2024. "So much of life and vibrancy of this corridor is the small business community," Buttigieg said, standing outside the Mercado Central marketplace
