Published

Senate Democrats don’t feel that President Trump’s $2.5 billion budget request to help fight against the spread of the coronavirus, instead seeking to pull in $8.5 billion.

According to a top aide, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer “is preparing a detailed Senate request” to ask Congress for the money.

“Expect Schumer’s request to be finalized this morning and sent to appropriators,” the aide said.

Democrats on Tuesday dismissed the Trump administration’s $2.5 billion emergency funding request as far too low to prepare the nation to combat the virus in an adequate manner, given its spread in several countries. Democrats point out Congress appropriated $7 billion to battle the spread of the H1N1 virus 11 years ago.

Congress is preparing to take up the supplemental spending measure soon, but the final number will have to be negotiated between Democrats and Republicans in both chambers.

The House, which is currently run by Democrats, hasn’t yet proposed a spending number, but will take up the legislation first as usual.

Republicans in the Senate actually agreed with their Democrat counterparts, stating the figure proposed by President Trump might be a bit too low.

Regardless of where you stand on spending for this, the bottom line is that the coronavirus is pretty scary stuff and nations around the world need to be taking proper precautions to ensure the spread of this virus is contained until a vaccine and treatment can be created to prevent it from being a worldwide pandemic.

The disease’s death toll has risen substantially since the outbreak began in Wuhan, China, and if we want to avoid seeing those kind of numbers here on American soil, it’s going to cost a pretty penny to put all the safety measures in place.

Pro-Trump Georgia Democrat Says Kamala Harris Is ‘The Wrong Person’ To Win The Black Vote

Published

on

Georgia Democratic state Rep. Vernon Jones, who is bold and brave enough to have tossed his support behind President Donald Trump, stated that Democrats thought Sen. Kamala Harris, who has been announced as Joe Biden’s vice presidential running mate, would “help them save the Black vote, but that was the wrong person for that job to do that.” Jones made these controversial statements on the Wednesday morning edition of “Fox & Friends,” just one day after Biden made the announcement concerning Harris. One of the interesting facts about Harris the left hasn’t addressed yet is her deep background with law enforcement. Here is more from Fox News: “This was a good day for President Trump” Jones said. He then pointed out that “Trump has a better record on helping black men and women than Kamala Harris has, than Joe Biden has and as this story gets told more and more African-Americans are coming his way and that is what they’re afraid of.” “She flip-flops,” Jones added on Wednesday. He also accused her of saying “anything she can to get elected.” “Joe Biden has the right string, but the wrong yo-yo,” he went on to say, pointing out that Harris is “liberal.” “She accused Biden of being biased when it came to busing,” Jones added. He’s absolutely spot on about her flip-flopping on the issues. Whatever the popular take on a leftist agenda item happens to be at the moment, that’s the stance she’s going to take. Period. She’s an opportunist to the core. There are no principles, not even leftist ones, to which she seems beholden to, and that’s dangerous. Someone like that is easy to control, to manipulate. To use as a mouthpiece for agenda items passed down from those in power in the Democratic Party. And make no…

Biden’s VP Pick Kamala Harris Actively Promoted Group That Provided Bail For Alleged Violent Criminals

Published

Sen. Kamala Harris, who has been tapped to be Joe Biden’s vice presidential running mate on Tuesday, supported and promoted an organization that helped to provide bail money for violent criminals who were arrested during the riots that exploded after the death of George Floyd. That same group has now gone on to put up bail for an alleged murderer and a previously convicted rapist. A report from FOX 9 on Monday revealed that the group, Minnesota Freedom Fund, has in recent weeks bailed out people like Darnika Floyd, who was charged with second-degree murder after allegedly killing a friend by stabbing them to death. They also provided bail support for Christopher Boswell, who is currently facing charges of sexual assault and kidnapping. The MFF helped put up $100,000 for Floyd and $350,000 for Boswell. Check out the details from Fox News: MFF received about $35 million in the wake of Floyd’s death — which came after a Minneapolis Police Department officer knelt on his neck for almost nine minutes — with at least some of it coming from a number of Biden staffers who donated to the group and then tweeted about it. And Harris, D-Calif., a former prosecutor who served as the attorney general of California for six years, promoted the fund herself in a June 1 tweet, telling her followers that the group would be able to help protesters swept up in clashes with police as unrest gripped Minneapolis. https://twitter.com/KamalaHarris/status/1267555018128965643 But MFF, which received so much money amid the unrest that it asked people to start donating to other groups instead, didn’t just bail out protesters who may have been victims of overzealous policing. FOX 9 also reported that Jaleel Stallings, who is accused of shooting at police during the May riots, was bailed out by MFF…
