Published

on

The state of New Hampshire is seeking to receive a federal disaster declaration in order to receive additional help that will aid in alleviating the suffering of the citizenry during the coronavirus outbreak that is sweeping the country.

Gov. Chris Sununu and the state of New Hampshire are currently set to receive $1.25 billion from the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act that was passed into law by Congress last week.

Many residents have suffered massive economic stress due to losing their jobs and are set to receive additional unemployment benefits to help offset their current hardships.

The governor signed the Relief for Workers Affected by Coronavirus Act agreement that will give the state 100 percent funding from the federal government for unemployment benefits.

Unemployed New Hampshire residents will receive an additional $600 a week in addition to the minimum benefit amount of $32 to $168 a week. The unemployment benefit period will be extended from 26 weeks to 39 weeks.

Gov. Sununu recently released a statement saying, “We are making every effort to provide assistance to families who are out of work during this time so that they can focus on what is most important – caring for their families and protecting their health by staying home.”

New Hampshire will also be extending business tax collections and interests and dividend payments all the way to June 15. This particular measure is going to impact roughly 98 percent of small businesses and interest and dividend taxpayers.

The “stay at home” order the governor issued last week has been made effective until May 4 to help contain the spread of the illness, as well as continuing to keep kids out of school. The state has suspended all standardized testing as of Monday.

“While remote learning has gotten off to an incredible start, we must continue to have flexibility in our approach to education, and onerous standardized tests from Washington send the wrong message to New Hampshire families who are already working hard to adapt to this new, challenging environment,” Gov. Sununu stated.

Barr Labels Seattle, New York City, And Portland As ‘Anarchist Jurisdictions’

Published

Attorney General William Barr has come out and labeled the cities of New York, Seattle, and Portland as “anarchist jurisdictions,” stating they have “permitted violence and destruction of property to persist,” after the president signed an executive order to limit federal funds sent to these places in the U.S. The announcement came via the Justice Department on Monday morning, saying the leadership in these three cities “have refused to undertake reasonable measures to counteract criminal activities” for months now following the death of George Floyd, which led to an explosion in violent protests, riots, and looting. Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: “When state and local leaders impede their own law enforcement officers and agencies from doing their jobs, it endangers innocent citizens who deserve to be protected, including those who are trying to peacefully assemble and protest,” Barr said Monday. “We cannot allow federal tax dollars to be wasted when the safety of the citizenry hangs in the balance. It is my hope that the cities identified by the Department of Justice today will reverse course and become serious about performing the basic function of government and start protecting their own citizens.” Trump’s early September memorandum stated that “it is the policy and purpose of the United States Government to protect the lives and property of all people in the United States from unlawful acts of violence and destruction” and that “without law and order, democracy cannot function.” The president said that “anarchy has recently beset some of our States and cities” and claimed that “for the past few months, several State and local governments have contributed to the violence and destruction in their jurisdictions by failing to enforce the law, disempowering and significantly defunding their police departments, and refusing to accept offers of Federal law enforcement assistance.” He…

Tom Cotton Weighs In On Filling RGB Seat: Democrats Who Voted For Kavanaugh Won Reelection; Those That Didn’t, Lost

Published

Sen. Tom Cotton made a very good argument for why Democrats should vote in favor of filling the SCOTUS seat left vacant by the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, by pointing out that those Democrats who supported Kavanaugh got reelected, while those that voted against him didn’t. This is a great strategy. What most Democrats want more than anything is to do maintain power and stay in office so they can get paid to do nothing, and they are willing to do whatever it takes to do so. Cotton knows that, hence, bringing up this very valid point. via The Daily Wire: “In 2014, the American people elected a Republican majority to the Senate to put the brakes on President Obama’s judicial nominations,” Cotton said during an interview on Fox News. “In 2018, we had a referendum on this question, just a month before the 2018 midterms. We had the vote on Justice Kavanaugh. There could not have been a clearer mandate because the American people didn’t just re-elect Republicans, they expanded our majority. They defeated four Democratic senators who voted against Justice Kavanaugh. They re-elected the one Democratic senator who did vote for Justice Kavanaugh.” “So we have a clear mandate to perform our constitutional duty. That’s what the Senate majority will do now. That’s what we did back in 2016 as well,” Cotton continued. “The Senate majority is performing our constitutional duty and fulfilling the mandate that the voters gave us in 2016 and especially in 2018.” Cotton later added that people should not “discount Democratic votes either” in the upcoming hearings after President Donald Trump announces who he is nominating to the nation’s highest court. https://youtu.be/0N2I3GVO_q4 We absolutely need to make sure that a true, pro-life, conservative appointee is confirmed and placed on the Supreme Court, as…
