    1. @theWZZA, “Not the GOP”
      And not the democrats either
      Trump was all alone in that endeaver, but the Rich Elite and china and the both parties that they control are fighting like never before to stop Trump and his change for better for the little guy.
      – biden’s just same old, same old of the past 60 years

    2. *How Obama Destroyed Black Wealth*

      The nation’s first African-American president was a disaster for black wealth.
      Dec 2017 https://jacobinmag.com/2017/12/obama-foreclosure-crisis-wealth-inequality

      The Obama presidency was a disaster for middle-class wealth in the United States. Between 2007 and 2016, the average wealth of the bottom 99 percent dropped by $4,500. Over the same period, the average wealth of the top 1 percent rose by $4.9 million.

      This drop hit the housing wealth of African Americans particularly hard. Outside of home equity, black wealth recovered its 2007 level by 2016. But average black home equity was still $16,700 lower.

      Much of this decline, we will argue, can be laid at the feet of President Obama. His housing policies led directly to millions of families losing their homes. What’s more, Obama had the power — money, legislative tools, and legal leverage — to sharply ameliorate the foreclosure crisis.

      He chose not to use it.

      With Joe Biden surging in the polls, Wall Street executives are preparing for a potential scenario where he becomes president—with some firms warning clients the stock market could take a hit.

      *SURPRISING FACTS*

      According to a recent RBC Capital Markets survey, the majority of the firm’s clients still believe that Trump’s reelection is a positive for the market, with 60% saying that a Biden presidency would negatively impact stocks.

  1. The emergency on the FBI building is that the old building is near a Trump property, and Trump wants to make sure no one can build another hotel near his property. This is another Trump boondoggle that only profits him, and he wants it while Americans are dying because of his irresponsibility.

    1. @CITRUS KNIGHT I don’t think so! Bet if you launched another (of the myriad) investigations, the ORANGE TURD would have some connection!

    3. @CITRUS KNIGHT Slander has a high bar in the US thanks to the first amendment, but I wouldn’t expect Russian trolls to know that. If you want anyone to take you seriously you might want to STOP YELLING.

  2. The Republican plan is to cut support for everyone expect the ultra rich and big corporations and then make those who can’t afford to stay home go back to work and force them to put their children unsafely in schools during a pandemic …. All just to make and keep themselves rich at the price of American lives… Yesterday 07/28/2020 there were 1300 corona-virus deaths in America, that’s back to the fatality rate at the height of the pandemic from earlier this year….

    1. Don’t forget Trump’s not exactly a Republican and Trump’s plan is to reduce the Gravy Train to china for the Super Rich Elite in favor of the forgotten, little guy, American!
      And that’s why Trump’s the most viciously attacked President in American history by both parties!
      – From what I hear European schools are opening and there’s really nothing the gov can do about the virus other than let it run its course.

    2. Mr. Kocher, Trump’s incompetence laziness and stupidity makes him the perfect stooge for the Republican party. He owns them, but they also guide him. They’re both despicable, and the pandemic has finally wised up the majority of people. Trump will be gone after November, and I believe he will be taking a surprising number of Republican Senators and Congressmen with him.

    3. @John DiGiacomo,
      President Trump is the hardest working, most focused and least, if any at all, strings attached President I’ve ever seen, and I’ve seen them all since Kennedy (the last True Blue American Liberal democrat)!
      – It was the dems who did everything they could to make the chinese poison attack as bad as it could be and are still at it, and don’t think intelligent Americans don’t know the difference!
      – Can you give me the name of a prominent democrat who lifted a finger to pitch in with the virus?
      Trump is slated by the experts to win in a landslide, and it will be the greatest defeat since the Hildabeast defeat!

    1. The MAGA hat is the new white hood. Trump and all his supporters are fundamentally bad people and should be kept away from children.

    2. @Merrilou Neigenfind,
      All of the nazi rioting, unAmericanism, extreme hatred and Racism is on the Left and always has been

    3. @Rand Kocher We get it. All Trump supporters are racists and hate the US. Murica. Why don’t Trump supporters care about their own children. Weird and sad.

    4. @Rand Kocher wow I didn’t know someone could be so wrong and stupidity at the same time!

  3. Imaging using tax-payer money to help tax-payers in times of emergencies. Shocking revelation to Republicans, who only want to steal every last tax-payer dollar for themselves. They are all criminals!

    1. @A Centaur,
      The US is tapped out!
      There’s no more money because obama already wasted $9 Trillion, doubling the National Debt to an unpayable back amount giving it to his friends!
      And now in our time of need the emergency chinese poison attack closets were found empty and we’re broke!
      – Not Trump’s fault in the least!

    1. Good One. However, Moscow Mitch has been paid off by Russia, Trump, and His wife Is head of The U.S. Transportation Dept. She made sure that fat Gov Contracts went to her family and husband’s business. They made out like fat rabbits. Don’t forget what Steve MNuchin, said in 2019, $21 Trillion Plus went missing. He didn’t go missing. It was miss appropriated into Trump’s World Bank Account. The exact same place Ivanka started working part-time at. Trump, paid off The Senate Republicans to LIE DURING his Impeachment in 2019. They are all Grifters. Now Mnuchin is making Gold Bars with COINS to cover the $21 Trillion Plus that was partly funneled into the Trump’s World Bank Account that Ivanka works at. It’s a Trump Crime Organization – Not an Administration.

    1. @MR DEW Funny I don’t remember that costing the National Debt over 2 trillion dollars! (ie. BIG FAT TAX CUT FOR 1% AND CORPORATIONS!) Middle Class pat on the butt of a few more bucks a week in the paycheck! Pfffft! Not enough to fill my Prius gas tank!

    1. @CShield,
      Trump is the most experienced President America has ever had!
      He spent decades dealing with you corrupt, mentally ill, crooked, Liberal creeps the World over!
      Don’t you remember him telling us all that while campaigning?

    2. @Rand Kocher “Most experienced president ever?”
      Yeah, he’s running this country into the ground, just like his businesses!

    3. *How Obama Destroyed Black Wealth*

  4. Biden has my vote, because I am neither blind nor deaf. I am sick of the out right corruption coming from Donald and his cronies.

    1. You’ve been exposed for MSNBC & CNN for far to long…..the Democrat/Communist Party is the most corrupt and destructive criminal organization in the country.

    1. *THEM!* not just HIM…. *THEM*
      *ALL GOP AT EVERY LEVEL*
      It’s time to *DEFUND THE REPUGLIKKKANS*

  5. How about no Senators get paid until they do their job. Since they are dragging their feet at the expense of the American people. Then maybe they would hurry up and help people.

    1. @Kathrine Kerns,
      – Kathrine, the amount that Trump intentionally and unintentionally added to the National Debt doesn’t come anywhere near the $9 Trillion that obama/biden added to the Debt! The other thing is that every penny added to the Debt can be accounted for while Trump has been President while non of obama’s $9 Trillion can be!

    2. Actually Mr. Kocher, the debt that was attributed to Obama was Bush’s commitments from the wars and the banking bailout. About half of what was initially credited to him was Bush. Trump’s actually increased the debt more in one term, than any other president. Obama was also charged with recovering the worst economic crisis in since the great depression, before now. Fortunately As vice president Biden had experience with digging the economy out of a disaster. Trump’s experience is with causing bankruptcies, first businesses, now apparently our country.

    3. @John DiGiacomo,
      Biden’s experience is in one thing and one thing only, abusing his elected office to enrich himself and his family’s – Nothing More!
      When you consider the fact that Trump did a virtual 180 with the economy from obama’s in what 6 months?
      There was no digging out during the obama/biden Presidency whatsoever!

  6. I’m surprised to hear about the FBI building. I heard the ask was for some military contractors funds at the tune of 8 billion. Im starting to seriously worry that this may be the beginning of the end for the US.

    1. If you are American, the do whatever you have to do to vote.
      Make sure all family members and friends
      VOTE ALL GOP OUT OF OFFICE AT EVERY LEVEL.

    2. The building was expected to be sold and converted to a hotel. A new FBI building was to be constructed for less cost, but the old building would compete with Trump’s hotel.

  7. They are not trying to work with democrats. They don’t care how many people are being evicted, or have no money. They are trying to keep the money for themselves. Vote Blue.

  8. Cuts hurt and the GOP will only throw salt on the cut and say that you are better off then before you got cut.

  9. Trump and his party is skimming deep off the top and fattening their accounts before they get kicked to the curb.

    1. @ksuny You live under a rock! House passed those Bills 2 months ago! MOSCOW MITCH has been sitting on them and would rather confirm conservative judges instead! SO, YOU ARE SO FULL OF CRAP!

    2. ksuny the difference is that at least Trump did what he promised his folks!! Dems can’t get a s*** done! All fantasies

    4. @Keith Johnson – Shelby GT500 WTF are you doing here? Trump and positive don’t belong in the same sentence unless you mean “covid positive”.

    5. Keith Johnson, the stock market doesn’t affect the overwhelming majority of Americans, except negatively. The extra two trillion dollars spent to buoy stock prices would have had a better effect on the economy of it had been paid to the people instead of keeping stock prices high. Demand drives the economy, investment without demand is corporate suicide. Every time “supply side” economics is used as an excuse for corporate tax breaks it results in money siphoned from the economy and profit taking by the wealthy. Removing money shrinks the money supply, and results in recssion. Wake up and stop being a moron. Higher tax rates on corporations and the wealthiest individuals resulted in government investment in infrastructure, and higher wages for workers, as well as investment in education, technology, and communities. It actually increased investment because higher wages produced higher demand.

  10. It’s time to help the people. The rest is just an insult to everyone’s intelligence.
    Even the base has had enough. Pass the Democrats bill and move on. Please. Thank you.

    1. The Republicans have shown their hand. Two billion for the FBI building to prevent it from becoming a hotel competing with Trump’s hotel, tax breaks for expensive “business” lunches. They left for a long weekend without passing the relief package, letting it expire. They have interest or loyalty to their constituents, only the wealthy donors. They remained until after midnight to pass the tax breaks for corporations and the wealthiest individuals, but left early without a thought when it meant helping working families.
