Bad News On The Job Front As Jobless Claims Rise To 1.4M After Weeks In Decline

Published

on

One of the worst consequences of the lockdown orders we all had to endure during the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic here in the United States was the loss of millions of jobs and the fact so many people were put out of work.

Over the course of the last few months and weeks we’ve seen those jobless numbers decline drastically, which was evidence that the country was bouncing back, despite increasing cases of COVID-19.

Unfortunately, it seems that’s not continuing like it was. In fact, jobless numbers have risen to 1.4 million according to new reports from the Labor Department.

Thursday’s report marked the first weekly increase in jobless claims since the end of March, when new applications peaked at 6.9 million, a troubling sign of danger for the economic recovery.

The uptick in jobless claims comes as some states have reversed reopening plans for their economies. Coronavirus hot spots had the highest number of claims. For the week ending July 11, claims were over 65,000 in Florida, more than 33,000 in Georgia, and roughly 20,000 in California.

On top of these are the nearly 1 million new claims for the $600 Pandemic Unemployment Assistance for the week ending July 18, an increase of nearly 20,000 from the prior week.

This is precisely why we cannot allow another shutdown to take place, which could possibly happen as large numbers of new coronavirus cases pop up across the country, spooking out governors and local authorities.

We cannot sustain another massive hit like that to the economy. It would be devastating with a potential total collapse. Think things are in chaos now? Just imagine that scenario.

President Trump Calls On United Nations To Hold China Accountable For Causing Pandemic

Published

on

President Trump has come out and called upon the United Nations to step up to the plate and hold China accountable for causing the coronavirus pandemic that has swept across the globe, killing hundreds of thousands of people and almost leading to economic collapse for America and many other nations across the world. The president made his confrontational speech to the United Nations General Assembly in a recorded address a day earlier at the White House. The tone of his talk made it absolutely clear he’s not at all happy with China, the nation where this mess originated from. via Washington Examiner: His speech contained a list of accusations against Beijing, from allowing travelers to spread what he called the “China virus” around the world to polluting the oceans. “The Chinese government, and the World Health Organization, which is virtually controlled by China, falsely declared that there was no evidence of human-to-human transmission,” Trump said, calling on the U.N. to hold Beijing to account. “Later, they falsely said people without symptoms would not spread the disease,” he said. “The United Nations must hold China accountable for their actions. China absolutely should be held accountable for causing this mess. There are a lot of theories out there that suggest this virus was created and purposefully leaked into the world. We don’t know if that’s true, but even if it isn’t and the whole thing was an accident, the Chinese Communist Party is responsible for all of the horrific loss of life and economic damage this has caused. As such, they need to step up to the plate and make this right. They need to take responsibility for their actions and their blatant failures to get the spread of this illness under control.

Liberal Officials At State And Local Level Using Coronavirus Aid Money For Free College, Guaranteed Income

Published

on

State and local officials are taking full advantage of the millions of dollars they have received from CARES Act funding — before it reverts back to the federal government — by spending the money for many, many different kinds of liberal priorities, including free college, “Trunk or Treating,” or an experimental income program. The CARES Act has provided $139 billion for state and local governments. These payments have been used to fund a plethora of programs, including police budgets and utility assistance for struggling residents. And that is the sort of thing this money is supposed to go toward. Helping folks of all walks of life endure the hardships caused by the coronavirus and the subsequent shutdowns. However, liberals are using this money to support their own little pet projects and causes too. via Fox News: Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer is spending millions on free college for more than 600,000 essential workers. Honolulu Mayor Kirk Caldwell agreed to spend $629,000 to hire 15 community relations specialists. Democratic St. Paul Mayor Melvin Carter recently announced a guaranteed income program for low-income families using $300,000 in CARES Act money but has received pushback from a fellow Democrat. Earlier in September, Rep. Betty McCollum, D-Minn., wrote a letter to Carter expressing concern that the spending fell outside of federal guidelines and could be subject to recoupment by the U.S. Treasury. https://twitter.com/MayorCarter/status/1301936145585106944 It’s not at all surprising to see liberals take money that was supposed to be designated to help folks struggling in the wake of the pandemic closures for things they’ve always wanted to have the money to put in motion. What’s maddening is these same officials are already standing in line, hands out, begging for more money because there isn’t enough to actually help people in their communities because they misappropriated the…
