~ Thank You MJA@IOTWReport &
Larwyn's Linx@ Doug Ross Journal for the Linkage! ~
My Fellow Americans,
Our great country is experiencing an unprecedented public health and economic challenge as a result of the global coronavirus pandemic. Our top priority is your health and safety. As we wage total war on this invisible enemy, we are also working around the clock to protect hardworking Americans like you from the consequences of the economic shutdown. We are fully committed to ensure that you and your family have the support you need to get through this time.
On March 27, 2020, Congress passed with overwhelming bipartisan support the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act), which I promptly signed into law. I want to thank the United States House of Representatives and the United States Senate for working so quickly with my Administration to fast-track this $2.2 trillion in much-needed economic relief to the American people.
This includes fast and direct economic assistance to you.
I am pleased to notify you that as provided by the CARES Act, you are receiving an Economic Impact Payment of $______ by Direct Deposit. We hope this payment provides meaningful support to you during this period.
Every citizen should take tremendous pride in the selflessness, courage and compassion of our people. America’s drive, determination, innovation and sheer willpower have conquered every previous challenge – and they will conquer this one too. Just as we have before, Americans will triumph yet again – and rise to new heights of greatness. We will do it together, as one nation, stronger than ever before.
President Donald J. TrumpThat’s it.
At the bottom of the page – in bold, one-inch-high characters – the letter is signed “Donald J. Trump.”
A former taxpayer advocate at the Internal Revenue Service called the letter “unbelievable” and said it makes the agency “look like it is the handmaiden of one administration and one party.”
“This will harm the IRS and its ability to appear nonpolitical and nonpartisan,” said Nina Olson, executive director of the Center for Taxpayer Rights. “If I were there, I would be strongly advocating against this.”What? There is no mention in the letter of any party. There is credit given to a bipartisan group in Congress that passed the bill. There is thanks given to the Senate (Republican-controlled) and the House (Democrat-controlled). It’s hard to imagine a less political letter.

It's a well known fact that whites don't get haircuts, do their nails, go to the gym, or eat in restaurants. It's science, amirite?— Max Diesel Incognito Mode (@MaxDieselRI) April 27, 2020

A very moving anecdote from the Democratic presidential candidate pic.twitter.com/jmRvRROe61— Tom Elliott (@tomselliott) April 16, 2020
“One thing everybody has learned by now is that the Republicans occupying the White House and running the US Senate are not interested in progress. They’re interested in power… They’ve given polluters unlimited power to poison our air and our water… The other side has a massive warchest. The other side has a propaganda network with little regard for the truth.”There may have been only one thing he said that I can agree with: “Our country’s future hangs on this election.”

|'Cuomo The Younger'|
“I don’t like what I do professionally, trafficking in things that I think are ridiculous. Like talking to Democrats about things that I don’t really believe they mean and talking to Republicans about them parroting things they feel they have to say.
I don’t think it’s worth my time. I don’t want to spend my time doing things that I don’t think are valuable enough to me personally. I don’t value indulging irrationality, hyper-partisanship.”Personally I suspect watching 'Cuomo The Elder' on the tube everyday giving his coronavirus press briefing, projecting an image of a respected voice and popular politician, not a ridiculed host masquerading as journalist of a basement rated opinion show on an embarrassment of a news network, has done a number on Fredo's head. I suspect he also spent some of his time alone the basement binge watching the other networks and realized how utterly ridiculous the media sounds as nothing but a verbal hit squad. He also said he wants to stop analyzing the president, “Who we all know is full of shit by design.”
“I don’t think it's worth it to me because I don’t think I mean enough, I don’t think I matter enough, I don’t think I can really change anything, so then what am I really doing?”
“I’m basically being perceived as successful in a system that I don’t value,” he continued. “I’m seen as being good at being on TV and advocating for different positions… but I don’t know if I value those things...."Then again, you can't be employed by CNN and also be part of a Presidential Campaign when your brother is drafted to replace Joey B. now can you???
“We have an opportunity, Chris, to do so many things now to change some of the structural things that are wrong, some of the structural things we couldn’t get anyone’s attention on. In a sense, no pun intended, the Band-Aid’s been ripped off here. Everybody now understands that we have a voting system that is not transparent and clear and available for everyone. Everyone understands that the environment has impacted on this coronavirus and there’s mounting evidence of that.”That’s some impressive gaslighting, and since it’s CNN, no reason to challenge him for any actual proof to back up those claims. But get used to it, because the media is going to have to cheerlead and NOT ask the right questions if they want to drag Joe’s sorry ass across the finish line Election Day.

Why today's WH briefing was disturbing: presidential misinformation from the podium; dangerous and unconfirmed claims about hydroxychloroquine; gratuitous shots at rival politicians. pic.twitter.com/dHqUtCzkKC— Brian Stelter (@brianstelter) April 4, 2020
If there is going to be a Lady Gaga bug, it’s going to be a treehopper, because they have these crazy horns and a wacky fashion sense about them. They are unlike anything you’ve seen before. The frontoclypeus, which is like the face, was shaped totally different. The genitalia also looked more like treehoppers from the Caribbean.When you pause for a moment that this is a guy who studies equatorial insect genitalia, you don’t know who should be more insulted: Lady Gaga or the bug that was just named after her? I would have thought naming a reptile species after her would be more appropriate.
