Democrats in the Senate voted to block the passage of a coronavirus stimulus package Thursday after months of stalled negotiations between Democrats and Republicans.
The vote was 52-47, and the measure needed 60 votes to pass. The $500 billion bill would include a federal unemployment benefit, Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) funding and additional money for more coronavirus testing. If the bill was passed, money would have been directed to schools. Every Democrat voted against the stimulus package. The only Republican who voted against it was Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul.
“Every Senate Democrat just voted against hundreds of billions of dollars of COVID-19 relief. They blocked money for schools, testing, vaccines, unemployment insurance, and the Paycheck Protection Program. Their goal is clear: No help for American families before the election,” McConnell said in a tweet after the vote.

Gun control is symptomatic of advanced parasitic infestation, marking the near completion of a parasitic divergence. Only when a host organism (e.g., the public) is disarmed and rendered defenseless against its parasite (e.g., the “elite”) can it be fully exploited; this is why wasps paralyze caterpillars before depositing their eggs in/on the hapless creatures, who will later be consumed by their carnivorous larvae.
Mail-in ballots, the scam that fails everywhere it’s tested. See also, Massachusetts fourth Congressional District.
Days after Tuesday’s election and MA-4 is finding ballots, thousands of ballots in all kinds of fun places, including some 3,000 mail-in ballots that never made it to their respective polling locations on Election Day.
Professor Turley is a famed constitutional law professor who is frequently asked to testify before Congress on matters of law. He is, or well perhaps used to be a Democrat, but it seems like so many, he has been “red pilled.”
Prof. Turley blasts The Atlantic (magazine) for their false hit pieces on President Trump.
…While denouncing Trump as a pathological liar, the media has been pathologically biased. There was a time when a statement in a major publication was taken as true. My kids, however, have no such presumption about any news source. Even more disturbing, neither do I these days.
MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A Shelby County man questions what is going on at the Shelby County Health Department.
His mother died six months ago, but the health department just sent her a letter saying she is COVID-19 positive.
Troy Whittington said he was surprised when he opened the letter this week from the Shelby County Health Department. He knew what was in that letter was false.
“I’m just having a hard time understanding how they can say someone has COVID-19 when they are not even alive,” said Whittington.
Whittington said a letter arrived from the Shelby County Health Department for his mother, Sandra Whittington. The letter says she has been diagnosed as COVID positive and needed to isolate.
That would be difficult, according to her obituary: the 66-year-old died February 16th. That was weeks before the first case of COVID-19 was detected in Shelby County.
“It’s been 6 months, almost 7, since she passed away. There was no testing that was done at that time. On her death certificate it was stated she died, what the cause of death was, and it was not COVID-19. It was COPD,” said Whittington.
The Millington resident said his mom fought a long battle with COPD and was considered in stage 4 when she died in hospice at the home of a friend.
Whittington said when he called the health department, he was told she took a COVID-19 test June 20th, which was clearly impossible. She was cremated.
If you live in the suburbs or you’re a city dweller eyeing a move to a quiet cul-de-sac where your kids can play outside, you need to know about Joe Biden’s plan for a federal takeover of local zoning laws.
The ex-veep wants to ramp up an Obama-era social engineering scheme called Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing that mercifully barely got underway before President Trump took office, vowing to stop it.
Biden’s plan is to force suburban towns with single-family homes and minimum lot sizes to build high-density affordable housing smack in the middle of their leafy neighborhoods — local preferences and local control be damned.
Starting in 2015, President Barack Obama’s Department of Housing and Urban Development floated a cookie-cutter requirement for “balanced housing” in every suburb. “Balanced” meant affordable even for people who need federal vouchers. Towns were obligated to “do more than simply not discriminate,” as a 2013 HUD proposal explained. Rather, towns had to make it possible for low-income minorities to choose suburban living and provide “adequate support to make their choices possible.”
Had the rule been implemented nationwide, towns everywhere would have had to scrap zoning, build bigger water and sewer lines to support high-density living, expand schools and social services and add mass transit. All pushing up local taxes. Towns that refused would lose their federal aid.
The rule was one of the worst abuses of the Obama-Biden administration — a raw power grab masquerading as racial justice.
Like Iraq, Syria is filled with jihadists and tribes that have been at war for ages. While some groups there are innocent and other countries should step up to take them as refugees, there is no fixing Syria to the point where they could ever have a peaceful life for long.
Tucker Carlson dedicated much of his show to this subject:
The Trump Administration has kept it’s promise to uphold free speech on campus with new federal regulations. The rules uphold the rights of students and academics to free speech, freedom of association and freedom of expressive association. Student groups, especially religious ones, cannot be discriminated against. Universities that violate these rules, and many have, will face a loss of federal grants. Private universities that promise to uphold free speech, will be required to do so as if such rules are part of a contract with the students.
This is a giant leap forward in civil rights as Marxists on campus have discriminated against those who buck Marxist orthodoxy.
