Trump Pulls US Out of Treaty

0

(NewsBreakDaily.org) – President Donald Trump announced that the United States will be leaving the multinational agreement known as the Open Skies Treaty due to continued Russian violations. Of course, Progressive Liberals are accusing him of increasing international tensions during the pandemic, which could lead to unneeded military confrontation. At least, as far as their anti-Trump rhetoric goes anyways.

Conservative lawmakers are in support of this decision because the treaty has become increasingly one-sided in favor of Russia. It’s being hailed as a way to stop President Vladimir Putin from unfairly spying on America and strengthening the nation’s security.

Democrats, however, have described the maneuver as reckless. They’ve somehow developed respect and care for our European allies, which has not always been the case. How they equate our adherence to the treaty while allowing Russia to deny American overflights with recklessness is a bit mind-boggling. Then again, maybe they’re just not used to a president who won’t kowtow to other countries.

The country is seeing unprecedented turmoil in the face of the coronavirus that has wreaked havoc on employment, American society, and the economy. President Trump is doing all he can to keep us moving along safely in the world. But, the liberals in Congress and their media shills seem intent on derailing his efforts.

Just as they did with the virus relief bills, this effort just seems like one more attempt to push their Communist/Socialist Agenda ahead of the needs of the citizens they purport to represent. And, another scheme to steal the White House come November, by any means necessary.

Planned Parenthood Steals Millions in Relief Money

0

(NewsBreakDaily.org) – The Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) was created in the CARES Act as a means of helping small businesses survive the COVID-19 pandemic. The $2.2 trillion relief package contained language limiting which companies wouldn’t qualify. Included among these stipulations, is a limit of employees a parent organization and all its affiliates combined can have. However, at least 37 Planned Parenthood partners willfully disregarded that limitation.

These entities self-certified they did not exceed the 500 employee threshold established in the legislation. For all intents and purposes, defrauding the federal government out of $80 million, and not incidentally, taking it away from legitimate small businesses in need.

As of yet, the Progressive Liberals in Congress and their media shills have been silent on the matter. Perhaps they know there’s no real defense, since it was well-known from the start, as evidenced by the FAQ page of Rep. John Carter (R-TX). More likely, they’re trying to find a response that’ll somehow turn it back onto the Republicans.

For now, conservative lawmakers are demanding the organization return those funds immediately. It’s probably in their own self-interest to comply because at least one congressman is calling for prosecutions if it wasn’t a “mistake.”

Trump Taking Hydroxychloroquine, Lefties Go Nuts

0

(NewsBreakDaily.org) – President Donald Trump has been on the hydroxychloroquine bandwagon since the early stages of the COVID-19 pandemic that has America by the throat. On May 18, the president said he’s taking the medication to help prevent contracting the virus. And then — the war of words erupted. Naturally.

By and large, the debate was divided along Conservative and Liberal ideological lines. Commentators from the Right were more likely to give a virtual shrug of their shoulders, reminding everyone the president is an adult. And perhaps, they pointed out the fact that part of the Progressive Agenda is to foster the idea that Americans need a nanny-state.

But then, we have Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) saying — in what must have been her attempt to be witty — she was concerned for his health because side effects could dangerous for someone of his age who is also “morbidly obese.”

One of the news sites that’s been hypercritical of the president accused him of self-medicating without consulting a doctor. However, a memo from his doctor — US Navy Cmdr. Sean Conely, MD — confirms they’ve numerous talks and are on the same page.

When the Progressive Liberals ignore a group of doctors practically begging the governor of Arizona to reverse his ban on the drug, or an article in the New England Journal of Medicine about their “observational study,” people need to start asking: is their true motivation helping people or stealing the White House in November?

At least satire sites like the Babylon Bee and The Onion can help us keep a bit of a sense of humor about it. And that is sorely needed.

One State, Two State — Red State, Blue State

0

(NewsBreakDaily.org) – As red (Republican) states start to end lockdowns and reopen their economies, many blue (Democratic) state governors are pushing back at a rapid pace. Most Americans learned in history class about the American Civil War, including the notion that it all “started” with the attack on Fort Sumter in April 1861. Unfortunately, the curriculums in many schools gloss over the fact that tensions ramped up over years, if not decades.

The country has seen its fair share of political tensions lately, especially given the nearly 180-degree shift ideology between Presidents Trump and Obama. The COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting quarantine orders that have led to the patchwork manner of getting back to day-to-day routines, is becoming a war of words between the Left and the Right.

It’s not just politicians expressing their point of view either. In this day and age of internet communications, just about everyone can post about the evils of the Progressives and their attempts to foist socialism upon America and vice versa.

Some staunchly conservative sites decry the draconian measures being imposed by Democratic governors. On the other side of the spectrum, liberal sites have gone so far as asserting President Trump has committed treason in his support of anti-lockdown protestors.

Sometimes one has to wonder if the War Between the States truly came to an effective end at Appomattox Courthouse, Virginia back in 1865. The red/blue divide seems at least as wide now as at any time in the 19th century. It might even be worse since the ability to get news and opinions to the public at large is literally instantaneous.

Let’s hope historians in 2150 have a favorable report on 2020 America.

How Much of America Does China Own?

0

(NewsBreakDaily.org) – The novel coronavirus that originated in Wuhan, China — either from infected food at their wet-market or from the bio lab located there — has killed more than 313,000 people around the world as of May 17. It’s also caused unprecedented restrictions upon the American people. Combine that with aggressive military posturing and it seems appropriate to wonder just how much America relies on the communist nation.

Pharmaceuticals

Many would be surprised at how many of their medications China has an influence on. Whether it’s 100% manufactured in the country, or at least some of the ingredients come from the Asian nation, the pandemic has made at least one US senator take notice.

Some of the numbers are staggering. Reports indicate they’re responsible for making:

  • 90% of the antibiotics
  • 70% of acetaminophen
  • As much as 45% of heparin, a drug used to treat blood clots

If COVID-19 hinders the operation of the manufacturers there, the country could be facing an imminent shortage of as many as 150 drugs. This gives an ominous undertone to an article on the official state news website “suggesting” America owes China an apology. They even outline what might happen to us in the hypothetical event they cut off medical supplies to the United States.

American Businesses

Globalization is basically just what it sounds like — countries relying on each other to provide goods. One example is US companies outsourcing their products to nations where labor costs are a small fraction of what it would cost here. It makes sense that former President Barack Obama was a huge proponent as one of the goals is a one-world culture.

What that has meant in terms of ownership of American corporations vis-à-vis Chinese investors is another issue many are unaware of. By the end of the Obama administration, China controlled major companies such as Smithfield Foods, one of the country’s largest pork producers where a coronavirus-related shutdown could impact the food supply. Among others are General Electric Appliances and AMC Entertainment.

This hasn’t magically disappeared now that President Donald Trump’s in office. More recent estimates show Chinese ownership of approximately $29 billion in New York, $31 billion in California, and $11 billion in Texas.

Federal Debt

As most people know the government has operated at deficit-spending for decades. Since the spending authorized by Congress far outpaces what taxes bring in, they must borrow the balance, oftentimes from foreign governments.

As of February 2020, over $7 trillion — yes, that’s a “t” — of outstanding debt is owned by other nations. Note the date, this was before the $2 trillion COVID-19 stimulus bill was passed. Of that, China holds more than $1 trillion in notes owed by the United States. Let that sink in. One of the most politically anti-American nations on Earth owns almost 15% of its foreign-owned debt.

Half a century-plus of government glut and Liberal indoctrination of American schoolchildren, essentially patting them on the head and saying “run along and let us do the thinking for you,” has left the country in a precarious position. The pandemic only emphasizes this point. Fortunately, the White House, Senate, and Supreme Court are in the hands of fiscally-conservative men and women, which gives at least a small glimmer of hope for future generations.

Judge in Flynn Case Goes Off the Rails

0

(NewsBreakDaily.org) – Judge Emmet Sullivan sits on the United States District Court for the District of Columbia and is presiding over the Gen. Michael Flynn case. He’s made a series of controversial rulings recently. Now, he’s refusing to accept the request by the Department of Justice (DOJ) to dismiss the charges against Flynn.

1st Order

Sullivan is refusing to allow the DOJ to simply end the prosecution of Gen. Flynn, who was all but exonerated by the recent release of unclassified documents. The Bill Clinton appointee, in a move the defense counsel contends is not permitted by federal court rules, declared he was ordering outside third-parties to give their input on the motion to dismiss — known as amicus curiae.

Others in the legal field are equally shocked as former Utah US Attorney Brett Tolman said it “is an outrageous decision by a judge…” A lawyer who specializes in national security issues, Brad Moss, was a bit more judicious in his opinion that “…the need for amici is usually only warranted in civil cases.”

2nd Order

The next curious move by the judge was to bring in a retired colleague, John Gleeson who sat on the federal bench for the Eastern District of New York. One of his jobs will be to argue against the DOJ motion, in essence prosecuting the prosecutors.

His second task is to decide if Flynn should be held in contempt of court. The apparent logic there is warped. Apparently, by recanting his guilty plea after documents indicating he may have been a victim of entrapment came to light, he’s now guilty of perjury because he was tricked into his statement.

More disconcerting to some is the fact Gleeson has publicly opined he feels the DOJ has made a mockery of the American jurisprudence. He wrote, “The Justice Department’s move to dismiss the prosecution of former national security adviser Michael Flynn does not need to be the end of the case — and it shouldn’t be.

3rd Order

In a final maneuver, Judge Sullivan permitted the law firm of Covington & Burling, LLC to enter into the fray as an “interested party.” There was no indication as to what information they might offer the court. Though, there are some issues with the firm that could raise ethical concerns depending on what they intend to offer:

  • This firm represented Flynn and allowed him to enter a “guilty” plea.
  • Subsequent to being fired by the general, they were retained by Joe Biden’s campaign.
  • The firm has several prominent veterans associated with the Obama Administration, including Eric Holder, former US attorney general.

When dealing with courts and judges, the presumption must be that they’ll be fair and unbiased, but it’s extremely foolish not to keep a watchful eye on them to ensure all American’s rights are vigorously protected. Especially one that’s fraught with national political ramifications, up to and including the fast-approaching presidential election.

Legislators Buck Party Lines On Stimulus

0

(NewsBreakDaily.org) – House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) took a risky step proposing a new $3 trillion stimulus bill knowing it had less chance than a snowball residing with Satan. She was likely hoping to portray Senate Republicans and President Donald Trump as uncaring and corporate-owned. Instead, all she managed to highlight was the fractures within her own party.

Far-left Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Pramila Jayapal (D-WA) have both publicly stated their intent to vote against the measure. Of course, their concerns are the bill doesn’t do enough to push America towards their Socialist/Communist plot for the country.

Jayapal posted a letter to her official house webpage stating it doesn’t do enough to turn the nation into “The People’s Republic of Amerika” “[a]t a time when we should be strengthening collective bargaining and worker power…” What she fails to note is an explanation as to why “collective bargaining” is so time-critical that she’ll say “nay” about getting help to the people.

The fact of the matter is the bill will pass through to the Senate, even with a few traitors in Nancy’s house. It’s equally true it’ll die in the upper chamber. The pandemic has certainly shown us that the Progressive Liberals are so focused on pushing their agenda they really couldn’t care less about the citizens of the United States.

Study: 42% of Layoffs Will Be Permanent

0

(NewsBreakDaily.org) – A working paper published by the National Bureau of Economic Research delivered a bleak prediction to laid-off American workers. Their models show that nearly half of all COVID-19 related job losses could be permanent.

This might come as a gut-punch to the unemployed across the country, especially considering 78% of them expect to have a job when things settle into the “new normal.” That may prove to be more of a pipedream than reality, however.

It should be noted that, like all mathematical models, they use data from prior experiences combined with a set of defined presumptions to predict future events. In this case, some of the variables that could impact the number include the length of the lockdowns, any possible reapplication of those orders, and the speed (read: slow, slower, slowest) of government response.

Another factor the paper notes is one that should’ve been glaringly obvious from the start — the $600 per week bonus in unemployment benefits. If a person’s weekly income is higher by staying home than returning to the workforce, they have less incentive to go back. In some states, this could impact a company’s ability to survive because the loan-forgiveness aspects of the Paycheck Protection Program are tied to employee retention.

Everyone’s aware of the devastating effect the pandemic has had on the world economy. They’re also somewhat prepared for what may be permanent changes to social interactions. But, as America sputters along towards reopening, some groups are looking more deeply into the future.

Dems Launch $3 Trillion Wish List

0

(NewsBreakDaily.org) – The Democrats launched what’s bound to be the first shot in a bitter, partisan war of words. Their weapon of choice? A new COVID-19 stimulus draft bill — one that’s over 1,800 pages long and carries a $3 trillion price tag.

The proposed legislation was put together without the input of a single member of the Republican party. However, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), aka AOC, and the infamous Squad members are pushing back a bit because the bill doesn’t go far enough. They crafted a letter indicating the bill had to have their $2,000 monthly payment scheme “lasting at least [emphasis added] the duration of this crisis.” While it doesn’t currently mention this, it does contain a round of $1,200 payouts per household member, up to $6,000.

Over in the Republican-led Senate, the response was … less than enthusiastic. The document released by Pelosi doesn’t address issues Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) considers “must-haves,” like protecting business owners from lawsuits once they reopen.

What would a Progressive Liberal proposal be without addressing their pet projects? They’ve been beating the drum for allowing mail-in-voting for everyone, an idea that’s ripe for election fraud. This includes a provision that effectively negates all voter ID laws, mandating that states accept a person’s word that, “I really am a citizen, honest and truly I am!”

It looks like their precious agenda won out over the American people — again.

Social Media Liberal Bias Hits Unprecedented Levels

0

(NewsBreakDaily.org) – Social media platforms like YouTube, Twitter, and Facebook have become the way many — if not most — Americans communicate with each other. Sadly, it’s also what they seem to rely on for information to build their beliefs. However, the companies behind these sites appear to be removing material that doesn’t align with the Progressive Liberal Agenda.

A prime example is President Donald Trump’s #Obamagate. He tweeted and started a trend on Twitter after documents came to light showing Obama’s part in the machinations to entrap Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn. The hashtag spent hours in the top 10 of Twitter’s “trending” list. That is until the company caught wind of it and scrubbed it. The hashtag then abruptly dropped from number five to zero.

The experiences of Robert Bluey, VP of Communications for the Heritage Foundation, detail their dealings with these companies. In one case “Facebook removed a…video of a pediatrician warning about the dangers of puberty blockers for children,” which would be anathema to transgender activists.

The second instance was when one of their employees was suspended from Twitter for using a “misgendering” word. In both cases, the public applied enough pressure to get the situations resolved with an “apology.”

History has proven people who want to create a system of oppressive government work to control the flow of information in education systems and public newsfeeds. Adolf Hitler did it, as did Joseph Stalin, and Chairman Mao Zedong.

Let us hope America doesn’t have to learn that lesson the hard way.
