Georgia Democrat Who Supports Trump Decides Not To Resign Due To ‘Outcry From The People’

Published

on

Finding a Democrat serving in any capacity in any government anywhere in the country is about as rare as finding a unicorn, however, it seems that one such individual exists in the state of Georgia and rather than stepping down from his post after supporting the president, he’s decided to stick around thanks to the outcry of support he’s received from citizens of the state.

Rep. Vernon Jones announced that he supported President Trump on April 14, indicating that it is the commander-in-chief’s “handling of the economy, his support for historically black colleges, and his criminal justice initiatives” as the reason for backing him.

As you might imagine, Jones immediately received backlash from other Democrats in the state who vowed to take revenge on him for openly making such a move. In the wake of the threats, Jones had planned to step down, but then people supported him and he’s now decided against that course of action.

“Because [of] what you did for me, I am going to remain on the battlefield. I am going to complete my term. I am going to continue to put my country before my party, and I’m going to do everything I can to help Donald J. Trump get reelected,” Jones said in a video posted on social media, explaining that his decision was made after discussing it with his family and supporters.

The tweet included #MAGA, which is the acronym for Trump’s 2016 campaign motto: “Make America Great Again.”

“Little did I know that I would receive such [a] barrage of attacks and name-calling by the far Left in the Democratic Party,” Jones said. “Yesterday, I had announced that I would not be completing my term, but then, when I started receiving the overwhelming amount of support, and outcry from the people that I represent in House District 91 … that was emotional, and that was motivational.”

Jones represents one of the most Democratic districts in Georgia and has held his seat, representing parts of DeKalb and Rockdale counties in the suburbs of Atlanta, since 2017.

Isn’t it sad that a black person, a Democrat no less, cannot express a difference of opinion within his own ranks and back the president without receiving threats? This from the party that claims to be all about equality and tolerance. Guess that stuff only counts when you are part of their borg collective.

Groupthink is the order of the day for modern progressives and they are pretty strict about making sure folks adhere to the talking points. Glad that Jones is sticking around.

NC Democrat Who Slammed Coronavirus Program Received Millions From It

Published

on

North Carolina Democratic Senate nominee Cal Cunningham was a rather outspoken hater of the coronavirus stimulus package, but it seems that his criticisms weren’t enough to get him to forego allowing his company to receive $2 million in taxpayer dollars from the Paycheck Protection Program, which he claimed “harms communities.” Funny how many of these individuals on the left will slam a program like this, but secretly put their hands out for it when they think no one is watching. Here’s more on this from The Free Beacon: WasteZero, a Raleigh-based environmentalist trash service, obtained between $1 and $2 million in PPP funding on May 3, data released by the Small Business Administration on Monday show. Cunningham earned about $400,000 in 2019 in his role as the company’s general counsel and vice president. He has repeatedly criticized the federal program, which aims to support small businesses struggling with coronavirus shutdowns. Just two months after Senate Democrats blocked a Republican effort to bankroll the depleting fund in April, Cunningham called the program “unacceptable,” saying it “harms communities.” “For PPP loans to have ‘generally missed the industries and areas most heavily impacted by COVID-19′ is unacceptable,” he said in a tweet. “Leaving behind small businesses—and disproportionately those that are Black- and Latino-owned—harms communities.” The former state legislator “supports [WasteZero’s] outreach to municipal and state leaders,” according to an archive of the company’s website. Cunningham also has stock options and a convertible note of up to $50,000 tied to the company, according to his candidate financial report. Cunningham told reporters that he was still working for the company in February. He has since been removed from WasteZero’s website and the company does not publicly acknowledge any legal representation on its site. Neither Cunningham nor WasteZero responded to requests for comment about PPP or…

White House Now Considering $1 Trillion Pandemic Relief Bill

Published

on

The White House is mulling over a second coronavirus relief package and is estimating that it will cost somewhere in the ballpark of $1 trillion, according to reports from Marc Short, chief of staff for Vice President Mike Pence. Yes, you read that correctly. That’s “trillion,” with a “t.” The last major bill that was crafted to help small businesses and individuals directly impacted by the coronavirus shutdown was over $600 billion. Short spoke with the folks on Bloomberg radio saying, “There’s obviously a lot of stimulus put in the system over the last couple of bills, and so the price tag for us would be that.” Folks, this is racking up the national debt in ways that are almost unfathomable to comprehend, which is why this isn’t a very good long term strategy. We cannot keep pumping funny money into the economy and expecting it to make a full recovery. What we need is to get back to producing, full swing, to stop things from getting worse. This requires state governors to open up their economies a bit faster than they already are and to loosen some restrictions on companies that might require such measures. Of course, we still need to be as careful as possible not to cause a second spike of the virus, but without herd immunity, this thing is never, ever going to go away. We have to think of the long term picture and not just the short-term. Leftists want to look at the mortality rate for this thing and want it to be zero, completely eliminated. That, of course, is a wonderful goal and something we should want as well. However, we have to acknowledge that as much as we want that, it’s not going to happen. People are still going to die from…
