President Trump Considers Unilateral Action Over COVID-19 Relief Bill Jammed Up In Congress



The Trump administration is working hard to find a solution to move the latest coronavirus aid package through without the need for congressional approval after the bill has gotten stuck between the White House and mostly liberal lawmakers on Capitol Hill who want to use the legislation as a means of trying to get “wish list” items passed into law.

A senior administration official spoke with Fox News on Monday saying that the White House is looking into a number of different options to try and ease the economic hardships that have resulted from the effects of the coronavirus and the subsequent shutdowns used to try and slow the spread of the virus.

“As the negotiations continue to progress as a snail’s pace, the administration is considering a number of options that might be available without congressional legislative action,” the official told Fox News.

At this point, it is unclear what item the administration could attempt unilateral action on, but much of the negotiations on Capitol Hill have come to a stalemate with regards to unemployment benefits.

“Those that are counting on enhanced unemployment need to be gravely concerned about the lack of progress,” White House chief of staff Mark Meadows told Fox News. “My recommendation would be for them to call their members of Congress and their senators and ask them why they are not willing to compromise when obviously the White House is willing to compromise.”

Meadows then went on to add, “There are two things standing in the way to a deal on enhanced unemployment benefits continuing. One is Sen. [Chuck] Schumer and Speaker [Nancy] Pelosi and the other is a negotiating tactic that puts people at risk.”

The original enhanced unemployment benefits offered folks who were put out of work an additional $600 a week. This program expired at the end of July, but Democrats want to continue it as part of the new package. However, many folks in the Republican Party have noted that this amount makes some individuals earn more money than they did when they were working, which might disincentivize folks from wanting to return back to work.

The Republican HEALS Act, which is going to cost taxpayers $1 trillion compared to the $3 trillion from the HEROES Act the Democratic Party wants — only provides an additional $200 a week.

Republicans have offered to allow the extra $600 for one more week while negotiations continue, but the Democrats rejected it.

At the end of the day, none of this is good for the economic future of America. The only way forward is for a full reopening of our economy and allowing folks to get back to normal as much as possible.

Yes, this does come with some risks. However, the repercussions of not doing it will be devastating and take years to repair, if they can even be repaired at all.

Biden Set to Provide Pathway to Citizenship for Upwards of 20 Million Undocumented Aliens

How do you say, ‘this is a terrible idea,’ in Spanish?

John Salvatore



The goal of the Biden administration is simple. It’s not too dissimilar from the goal of the Obama administration’s, either. In a nutshell: destroy America. That’s the plan. From Los Angeles Times: During his first days in office, President-elect Joe Biden plans to send legislation to congress that would provide a pathway to citizenship for 11 million immigrants who are in the country without legal status. Biden’s legislation does not include money to support detention and deportation. Previous immigration bills passed under both Democratic and Republican administrations linked an expansion of immigration with stepped-up enforcement and security measures. CONTINUED: The bill would provide a shorter pathway to citizenship for people with Temporary Protected Status, for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival (DACA) recipients and likely also for certain frontline essential workers, vast numbers of whom are immigrants. Biden’s proposal would be the most sweeping and comprehensive immigration package since President Reagan’s in 1986 Immigrants would become eligible for legal permanent residence after 5 years and wait 3 more years for U.S. citizenship. After Joe is sworn-in as president, how long will it be before he gives way to Kamala? What say you? A year and half? Two and half years at best? WATCH: Here’s Commiela getting the shot…

They’re baaaaaacccckkkkk. Except this time, the United States doesn’t have a strong, pro-American leader in the White House to stop them. Instead, we’re all stuck with beta male Joe and alpha woman Kamala. Lucky us. From New York Post: Guatemalan authorities have detained hundreds of Honduran migrants from the caravan including families with young children, though thousands of others were able to breach border security and continue their march northward, Reuters reported. “We are going to leave the country, to ask for help wherever they receive us,” one migrant told The Associated Press. Some 6,500 souls are on the move, fleeing poverty and political corruption in the hope of ultimately finding a better life in the United States. WATCH: Here we go again…
