I had to read it again.. and check the date to make sure I was not getting senile.. but yeah.


“America is in a serious crisis — but House Democrats see it as “leverage” to pass their socialist agenda,” he said. “Republicans reject Democrats’ liberal wishlist and will continue to focus on getting Americans back to work safely and defeating this virus,” McCarthy said.

But in this bill, $500 billion to bail out states who were failing prior to COVID-19. What’s not in this bill, Mr. Speaker? Money to hold China accountable for this whole mess. No money in this bill to hold China accountable. But again, what’s in this bill? Billions of dollars for people who are here illegally. Just look at this one page in the bill, just one page, two-word change that makes accessible hundreds of billions of taxpayer dollars to people here illegally. It’s in the bill.

Sad times we are in.

MIM's street talk about the spider web trap and June 12th is getting closer. Stay tune ATS members.


For those who don't know it, if I leave Japan, I'm not able to return to Japan because I'm an American. Seems right now its permanent . That includes all Americans. So all these English teachers here that left after April 3rd, they can not return to Japan.

I dont see how we can recover from things like this.. this is a huge amount of money.. and so much of it is being thrown into the wind.


I also just read that Trump has gone back on defunding WHO and is now partially funding. I voted for the guy and I like a lot of what he has done, but some things I just dont understand.

They cant come back.. I know. A friend of the husbands told him that Japan is afraid of an even worse second wave and it coming from the US because we have it so bad here. Thats the rumor anyway.

How in the hell can I help you out... I have no damned idea myself! Guess we have to read the whole thing before we can throw down our hot pockets and scream...

It was what Steve Scalise was quoted as saying. Ask him I guess.

It makes me wonder what the reasoning was behind that change.. the truth of it. Thats one thing we dont get too often. When I say something.. like an important decision.. personally Ill be damned if I go back on it unless there is some very compelling evidence that I made a huge error. Ill say why Im changing it and the reasoning behind the change. I have had to do this more times than Im comfortable with doing recently but the information kept changing.. I at least told the crew why things changed.

Yep. It seems at this point what we have is Scalise's interpretation of that one page . I too will wait until we can read it ourselves before I believe it.

Justin Haskins: $3T coronavirus relief bill passed by House Dems funds most radical programs in US history




House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., has acknowledged that the HEROES (Health and Economic Recovery Omnibus Emergency Solutions) Act will not become law, but said it can be the basis for negotiations with Senate Republicans and the Trump administration.



Oh like I said in the past... shoot to the moon and negotiate lower.

There is something weird about this photo of Nancy wearing a muzzle.

It's not a certified Covid-19 virus stopper. I thought she was scared to death of catching it.

Your pals had a fit when he stopped funding. Why aren't you tickled pink? The WHO can now resume their highly effective lobbying for the CCP.

Just remember as you delight in our printing of money, looking back you'll remember the good ol' days before the US dollar crashed and you could still afford food.

Regardless of parts or even theoreticly most of the legislation being good and agreeable, this will never be treated seriously by the Republican Senate.

They all vote no and nothing passes them into law because they are the majority in a higher branch of legislative government. It's the strongest setup possible in our democracy because the GOP holds the presidency and the Senate which has stronger powers than the House of Representatives.



Impeachment
Under the Constitution, the House of Representatives has the power to impeach a government official, in effect serving as prosecutor. The Senate has the sole power to conduct impeachment trials, essentially serving as jury and judge. Since 1789 the Senate has tried 19 federal officials, including two presidents.

Nominations
The Constitution provides that the president "shall nominate, and by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, shall appoint Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls, Judges of the Supreme Court, and all other Officers of the United States… (Article 2, Section 2)." The Senate has always jealously guarded its power to review and approve or reject presidential appointees to executive and judicial branch posts.

Treaties
The Constitution gives the Senate the power to approve, by a two-thirds vote, treaties made by the executive branch. The Senate has rejected relatively few of the hundreds of treaties it has considered, although many have died in committee or been withdrawn by the president. The Senate may also amend a treaty or adopt changes to a treaty. The president may also enter into executive agreements with foreign nations that are not subject to Senate approval.

This is no joke. I'm really afraid once the foreigners here start robbing people, the internment camps will happen. You have to realize that thousand of them have been working in the auto industry and its all but closed down. In about 15 more days here the weather will turn blistering hot. Them Brazilians are not going to stay in their company dorms or family housing.

Also typhoon #1 is on it way toward Okinawa now. It may end up going up the east side of Japan also. That is where most foreigners live. If destruction hits hard , where are all the foreigners going to go. The shelters? I think the Japanese will still be afraid of the virus, so many people will be living in their cars. Actually the govt. is all ready thinking of this disaster.
