Fellow patriots, please listen to this short, inspiring message from General Flynn. General Michael Flynn exemplifies patriotism, courage, and love of God and country - despite some of his own countrymen relentlessly attacking him. Donations for his defense are greatly appreciated. If you can only give $5.00, please do so - every little bit helps. Thank you so much, and God bless. Letter from General Flynn.
(TCP News) In a marathon session lasting over 27 hours, Democrats managed to ram through a Coronavirus relief package. The main problem? This bill has little to do with relief of any kind.
A) The Senate has approved the sixth major coronavirus relief package.
The vote was 50-49
It was a party line vote.
Sen. Dan Sullivan (R-AK) was absent due to the death of his father-in-law.

Instead the Dems bill is a liberal wishlist shopping trip on steroids. While the Democrats pat themselves on the back and say relief is on the way, the truth is this so-called relief is more a noose about the neck of tax payers.
The Babylon Bee, a satirical site posted the perfect tweet on this news:
Gang Of Masked Bandits Steals Another Few Trillion From Your Grandchildrenhttps://t.co/cbwEHhPNOJ

From The Babylon Bee:
WASHINGTON, D.C.—A nefarious gang of masked bandits has voted to steal another few trillion from your grandchildren, investigators confirmed. The mysterious masked culprits are currently wanted for stealing trillions from your grandchildren but have not been apprehended yet and so are continuing to plot more heists.
While most criminal heists involve breaking into a vault, jumping onto a moving train, or blowing up the moon, this supervillain gang’s plan is more subdued but no less evil: they will simply print money, borrow money, and raise taxes until your kids and grandkids have nothing left.
The above is of course meant to be satirical, sadly it is far more of a reality than most of the reporting out there on this massive money grab for the libs and their pet projects.
This may actually not be satirical…. https://t.co/xPJJqyyTHI

What he said…
Inside this “relief” bill is a new BILLION dollar tax – on gig economy workers, like Uber drivers, DoorDash drivers, and other independent contractors and part time workers. So much for earning a little extra money especially after the lockdowns have damaged or destroyed so many people’s earning potential.
1.9T stimulus bill just passed where only 8% of the money actually goes to the people. Dozens of Democrats just made themselves billionaires! The dems just pulled off the biggest heist of tax payer funds in the history of our country!

The $15.00 an hour minimum wage increase failed to be included in the Senate version of the COVID stimulus bill. Unfortunately, there is plenty of other pork spending included with very little going to actual COVID relief.
A whopping 350 BILLION goes to bailing out failing state and city governments – mainly run by Democrats. AND – the plan puts into place a federal moratorium on evictions and foreclosures until the end of September. It also includes billions for food insecurity.
It needs to be noted here that a moratorium on evictions simply encourages people to NOT pay their rent and in some cases their house payment (yes there are people that are this stupid). A better solution would be to end the charade with the mask nonsense and lockdowns that are both proven to be ineffective – and reopen the economy and assist people with getting a job again. Even rental assistance would be better than the moratorium which is nothing more than an economic nightmare to many who own said rentals. There are also many who simply don’t want to work and would rather suck up the unemployment (this is being extended again as well) and whatever else the government will hand out. We see this all the time.
This Democrat vaunted “aid to Americans” bill is anything but. It is more like a tight noose around our necks, worse, it is a noose around our grandchildren’s children’s necks.
