The Washington Post declared poverty is over, comrade! Chairman Xiden killed it.
ITEM 1: The Washington Post reported, "President Biden’s stimulus package, which passed the Senate on Saturday, represents one of the most generous expansions of aid to the poor in recent history, while also showering thousands or, in some cases, tens of thousands of dollars on Americans families navigating the coronavirus pandemic.
"The roughly $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan, which only Democrats supported, spends most of the money on low-income and middle-class Americans and state and local governments, with very little funding going toward companies. The plan is one of the largest federal responses to a downturn Congress has enacted and economists estimate it will boost growth this year to the highest level in decades and reduce the number of Americans living in poverty by a third."
Reduces poverty by a third!
Those $1,400 stimulus checks are a miracle.
Of course, there is the inconvenient little fact that stimuluses of $600 and $1,200 last year (a total of $1,800) failed to do that.
But that was under Donald Trump. He lacks Biden's magic, which turns $1,400 into a miracle cure for poverty.
ITEM 2: Flashback to January 11, 2018, when Nancy Pelosi called bonuses of $1,000 to $5,000 per worker under the Jobs and Tax Cut Act crumbs.
She said, "In terms of the bonus that corporate America received versus the crumbs that they are giving to workers to kind of put the schmooze on is so pathetic."
One year later the unemployment rate was at a 50-year low of 3.5%.
ITEM 3: Speaking of crumbs, while Americans get $1,400 stimulus checks, federal employees will get $21,000.
Gee, I wonder why so many government employees vote Democrat.
ITEM 4: The New York Post reported, "Venezuela said it will introduce new large-denomination bolivar notes as hyperinflation renders most bills worthless, forcing citizens to turn to the U.S. dollar for everyday transactions.
"The country’s central bank posted a statement on its website Friday saying it would begin circulating the new 200,000, 500,000 and 1,000,000 bills to 'fulfill the current economy’s requirements' without providing further details. The 1,000,000 note -- the largest in the nation’s history -- is worth only $0.53 cents."
Those $1,400 stimulus checks are worth 2,641,509,430 Venezuelan bolivars. We are all going to be Venezuelan billionaires. Just keep printing the money, Democrats.
The problem is not the stimulus checks per se. They represent 9% of this $1.9 trillion giveaway. It is all the bailouts of state and local governments that are ginning up inflation. States killed their local economies and are now rewarded for ending the middle class. It will not be long before the government is half the U.S. economy.
Do your really expect Biden or Harris to do better than Maduro in Venezuela?
Remember, it was not that long ago that Venezuela was the most prosperous and best educated country in Latin America.
ITEM 5: The Portland Police reported, "An arson fire that damaged vehicles parked at the administration building of Portland Public Schools is under investigation.
"On Saturday, March 6, 2021 at 3:15 a.m. Portland Fire and Rescue responded to a fire alarm at the Portland Public School Administration Building at 501 North Dixon Street. They encountered three PPS vehicles on fire in a parking garage. Two were cargo vans and one was a large box truck. They extinguished the flames.
"The fire was determined to be suspicious in nature and fire investigators from PF&R responded. Preliminary information is that the suspect or suspects gained entry to a fenced area on the property, started the fires, and vandalized the building."
Fighting fascist parking garages since 2020.
ITEM 6: New York magazine reported, "New York State Senate majority leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins said that if one more woman accused Governor Cuomo of misconduct, she would call for him to resign, as other state lawmakers already had following allegations that Cuomo had sexually harassed at least three women (and reports that his administration had tried to hide the number of nursing-home residents who died from covid 19 in the first several months of the pandemic)."
She told a TV station, "Any further people coming forward, I would think it would be time for him to resign"
There were 3 accusers at the time.
Now there are 5.
The Daily Mail reported, "Two more former aides of New York Governor Andrew Cuomo have publicly accused him of sexual misconduct, bringing the total number of accusers to five.
"Ana Liss, 35, previously served as Cuomo's policy and operations aide between 2013 and 2015. She told the Wall Street Journal on Saturday that during her time in his administration, the governor had subjected her to unsolicited advances.
"Liss claims it included asking her if she had a boyfriend, touching her on the lower back during an event reception and kissing her on the hand.
"Also on Saturday, Karen Hinton, 62, spoke to the Washington Post about an incident in which Cuomo summoned her to his 'dimly lit' hotel room and embraced her after a work event in 2000."
In response, Andrea Stewart-Cousins called for Cuomo to quit.
So governors, remember, you can harass only 3 women. After that, you must resign.
But why are we empowering women like this? Why is an accusation of hitting on a woman enough to undo the will of the people? If women are so strong and able, why can't they just tell the guy to shove off?
I have a feeling they already do.
Impeach him for his role in killing 15,000 people in nursing homes, but not this junk. This is not Victorian England.
ITEM 7: Of course, the governor could enter a Pepé Le Pew plea, which holds that a cartoon skunk's unwanted advances on a cat taught him it was OK to harass women.
There also is the Yogi Bear defense for stealing picnic baskets.
My favorite is the Elmer Fudd plea for poaching. You just tell the judge you didn't know if it was Duck Theathon or Wabbit Theathon.
ITEM 8: Just the News reported, "President Joe Biden's nominee to fill a top Pentagon post is under fire from Republicans for a history of uncertain support for the top U.S. ally in the Middle East, support for the Iran nuclear deal and — much like failed OMB director nominee Neera Tanden — a trail of caustic partisan swipes on social media.
ITEM 9: Ryan Saavedra reported, "Senate Democrats blocked an amendment by Republicans on Saturday that would have stopped taxpayer-funded stimulus checks from going to illegal aliens and incarcerated criminals.
ITEM 16: The Daily Wire reported, "Americans are rejecting Disney’s dive into woke politics, and disapprove of the firing of Mandalorian standout Gina Carano, exclusive polling data has found.
" 'Corporate America’s lunge into ‘wokeness’ and cancel culture might hit a bump in the road given public reaction to Disney’s recent actions,' pollster Neil Newhouse of Public Opinion Strategies concluded, assessing data from a recent survey conducted Feb. 26 to Mar. 3.
"Among other recent Disney news, participants of all stripes — Republicans, Democrats, and Independents — were asked questions concerning Disney’s ties to China, the company’s threat to abandon doing work in Georgia over pro-life legislation, and the recent firing of Carano over an allegedly offensive social media post. Notably, participants were shown the social media post in question from Carano, and overwhelmingly thought the firing was unjustified — 72%-28%."
By the way, the largest individual shareholders are the Murdoch family from its sale of most of Fox to Disney. They still own Fox News.
