Welcome to Day +55 …
President Trump signs a $2.3 trillion pandemic aid and spending package to keep unemployment benefits flowing. But there is still hope for the $2,000.
In a statement accompanying the signing…
Statement from the President
As President of the United States it is my responsibility to protect the people of our country from the economic devastation and hardship that was caused by the China Virus.
I understand that many small businesses have been forced to close as a result of harsh actions by Democrat-run states. Many people are back to work, but my job is not done until everyone is back to work.
Fortunately, as a result of my work with Congress in passing the CARES Act earlier this year, we avoided another Great Depression. Under my leadership, Project Warp Speed has been a tremendous success, my Administration and I developed a vaccine many years ahead of wildest expectations, and we are distributing these vaccines, and others soon coming, to millions of people.
As President, I have told Congress that I want far less wasteful spending and more money going to the American people in the form of $2,000 checks per adult and $600 per child.
As President I am demanding many rescissions under the Impoundment Control Act of 1974. The Act provides that, “whenever the President determines that all or part of any budget authority will not be required to carry out the full objectives or scope of programs for which it is provided, or that such budget authority should be rescinded for fiscal policy or other reasons (including termination of authorized projects or activities for which budget authority has been provided), the President shall transmit to both Houses of Congress a special message” describing the amount to be reserved, the relevant accounts, the reasons for the rescission, and the economic effects of the rescission. 2 U.S.C. § 683.
I will sign the Omnibus and Covid package with a strong message that makes clear to Congress that wasteful items need to be removed.
I will send back to Congress a redlined version, item by item, accompanied by the formal rescission request to Congress insisting that those funds be removed from the bill.
I am signing this bill to restore unemployment benefits, stop evictions, provide rental assistance, add money for PPP, return our airline workers back to work, add substantially more money for vaccine distribution, and much more.
On Monday the House will vote to increase payments to individuals from $600 to $2,000. Therefore, a family of four would receive $5,200. Additionally, Congress has promised that Section 230, which so unfairly benefits Big Tech at the expense of the American people, will be reviewed and either be terminated or substantially reformed.
Likewise, the House and Senate have agreed to focus strongly on the very substantial voter fraud which took place in the November 3 Presidential election.
The Senate will start the process for a vote that increases checks to $2,000, repeals Section 230, and starts an investigation into voter fraud. Big Tech must not get protections of Section 230! Voter Fraud must be fixed! Much more money is coming.
I will never give up my fight for the American people! <Source>
Is attorney L. Lin Wood suggesting the Democrats are coercing Supreme Court Justice John Roberts? Will they try to impeach Roberts to get two Biden Supreme Court nominations?
Giuliani’s Christmas message…
In Episode 97 of Rudy Giuliani’s Common Sense posted on Christmas, Giuliani recaps the state of play in the major swing states – nothing you haven’t heard before – and assures us that the electoral issue will “blow up” in the coming weeks. (WHO Will Be Our PRESIDENT? The Current State Of Our Country | Rudy Giuliani | Ep. 97 posted December 25, 2020)
“So starting after Christmas, this is really going to blow up. Because the evidence that all these crooked television networks, newspapers, big tech, and the leadership of the Democratic Party, have been giving you is false. And you’re going to find that out all at once. It’s going to be very shocking to the country.”
As I see it, will the cowards in the judiciary take up the matter of rules changes and de-certify electoral results in the swing states prior to the joint session of Congress on January 6, 2021, when they meet to count and challenge electors? Will the Supreme Court have the guts to take on an unprecedented electoral issue and render a historic decertification remedy? Or is it more likely that the courts will continue to delay while hoping that the inauguration will render the remedy portion of their burdensome task moot and they can simply shunt the matter off to the state legislatures?
Considering that this is a shocking abdication of the Supreme Court’s role, the Court, like most other government institutions, has been severely weakened by cowardice and partisanship and has lost much of its credibility to adjudicate disputes between the states.
And, one may ask, where is the Department of Justice and the FBI … both institutions tainted by the partisan politics of Democrats.
Will the GOP members of Congress stand together for a GOP victory or will the little girls like Mitt Romney hand Trump his hat on the way out.
Democrat plunder is never enough…
It appears that Diane Feinstein’s husband, Paul Blum, is not content to get fabulously wealthy off his wife’s connections; he now wants to become a U.S. Ambassador. Possibly trading her resignation for an appointment by a President Biden. If the GOP holds the Senate, will they have the guts to question Blum on the deals that appear to be facilitated by his corrupt wife and, of course, his connections with China? <Read more…>
A veteran California senator has resigned as chair of a powerful military construction committee after reports that for years she abused her position to award her husband’s companies billions of dollars in government contracts.
During her six years as chair and ranking member of the Military Construction Appropriations subcommittee, Senator Dianne Feinstein annually supervised the appropriation of billions of dollars for specific military construction projects. The San Francisco lawmaker supervised her own staff of military construction experts and she lobbied Pentagon officials to support her favorite projects.
She wielded quite a bit of power and succeeded in steering hundreds of billions of dollars in military contracts to companies partially owned by her wealthy husband, Richard Blum. One company alone earned $792 million from military construction and environmental cleanup projects approved by Feinstein’s committee and another $759 million.
The blatant ethics violation and obvious conflict of interest was first exposed earlier this year by a weekly Northern California publication. The story details how Feinstein voted over the years for appropriations that enriched her husband’s firms and that her top legal advisor also happens to be one of her husband’s longtime business partners; in other words, a financial beneficiary of the senator’s decisions. <Source>
Media dishonesty is worse than the rigging of elections?
What could be worse than the rigging of elections and denying “We the People” the representative government we chose for ourselves? How about the collapse of an honest, ethical, and free media that reports the truth and does not loosely collude with a major political party to control the free flow of information that would impact elections.
Election fraud has always been with us, but we have never seen the mainstream media and social media platforms actively collude to hide truthful stories that can damage a candidate or minimize the possibility of the candidate being a national security risk and working with our enemies.
Will Trump go to war?
2:30 a.m. Baghdad time…
For the last three nights, we have seen command and control aircraft, aerial refueling tankers, and fire-suppression aircraft orbiting in the skies over Iraq.
An imminent joint attack on Iran? Protection from Iraq-launched Iranian drones that destroyed one-third of Egypt’s refinery capacity in a coordinated attack? Protection for Israel? Revenge? January 3rd is the anniversary of the dead Iranian military leaders. January 20th and Trump may leave the Presidency.
Will the American people demand a President Biden respond to an attack in the region or will he display Obama’s weakness and cowardice?
Israel sent a nuclear-capable submarine into the Persian Gulf – in full view of the world using a surface transit for all to see. An Israeli Defense Forces spokesperson was quoted accurately without the customary mocking or threats that are standard in Saudi Arabian media.
Will, the Democrats, suppress their Antifa and Black Lives Matter insurgents in this next Senate runoff period? Or for the inauguration?
With all that has happened with our corrupt premier intelligence and law enforcement agencies, we would be remiss if we did not question this unclassified (U) field alert bulletin that was circulated for official use only (FOUO) as being a potential partisan threat of street violence to elected officials, election-related individuals who are being asked to ignore massive irregularities in their state or a warning to whistleblowers and the judiciary who may be asked to nullify certain electoral actions?
(U//FOUO) Threat Environment Leading into US Senate Runoff Election in Georgia
(U//FOUO) Prepared by the Department of Homeland Security Intelligence Enterprise (OHS IE) Field Operations Division (FOO) - Southeast Region, Count9rterrorism Mission Center (CTMC), Cyber Mission Center (CYMC), and the Georgia Bureau of Investigation - Georgie Information Sharing and Analysis Center (GBl-GISAC).

(U) Georgia's US Senate Runoff Election
(U) Georgia Is holding a runoff election for both of its US Senate seats on 5 January 2021. Under Georgia state law, the top two candidates for a seat must compete in a runoff when neither candidate receives the required majority (i.e., more than 50%) of the vote.States rarely have both US Senate seats open during the same election, and both seats being subject to simultaneous runoff elections is unusual. Georgia's runoff election will decide which party controls the US Senate and is expected to draw significant national attention, according to multiple US national media outlets.
U//FOUO) We judge that Georgia faces a potentially heightened physical threat environment over the course of its US Senate runoff election cycle, which may drive ideologically motivated violence or threats of violence similar to those seen nationwide leading Into the 2020 presidential and state election season. We base this assessment on a review of national and local media coverage, relevant social media postings, state law enforcement officials detailing ideologically motivated violence or threats of violence, and OHS election violence assessments that have been disseminated over the previous six months.
Incidents of violence in or near the state capitol, courts, and other symbolic political institutions-similar to dozens of incidents observed nationwide-could also negatively impact elected officials or election workers in Georgia over the course of the election cycle.
We further judge that violent extremists or other actors could quickly mobilize to violence or generate violent disruptions of otherwise lawful protests in response to a range of issues, including possible disputes over the results of the US presidential election.
Kamala Harris and Kwanzaa…
Vice President-elect Kamala Harris is wishing all who celebrate a happy first day of Kwanzaa. She posted a video on Instagram commemorating the holiday that honors African American and Pan-African culture and talked about celebrating the holiday growing up.
"Every year, our family and our extended family, we would gather around, across multiple generations, and we'd tell stories," she said. "We'd light the candles, and of course afterward, have a beautiful meal."
Amazing that someone who first claimed to have been raised in the Indian tradition now suddenly loves Communist Christmas – the made-up holiday invented by Ronald McKinley Everett, aka Ron Karenga, aka Maulana Ndabezitha Karenga, a Marxist and professor of Africana Studies at California State University, Long Beach.
Life goes on, and the leftovers are being eaten quickly. Looking forward to the machinations of Congress today.
