      Yes, democrats rejected the release of liability mitch wanted f or corporations and something about lunch right offs and trump’s requests to rebuild fbi building on same spot instead of moving it to MD so no competitors can put a competing hotel there… Meadows has been torpedoing the talks since mitch and trump put him in charge since they’ve left town …

    • @Chasmal I can tell you only watch watch CNN. they didn’t mention the 8 kids in Chicago killed in BLM protest. Or the riots. They don’t mention that abe Lincoln was murdered cause he free’d the slaves back in 1865. But then rioters want to take down the abe Lincoln statue. They don’t mention the girl shot for saying “all lives matter”. They don’t mention the rioters are destroying black folks businesses. They don’t mention. I can go on

      The bill he was talking about is the one that Nancy and the Dems made, he act like he made it but no.but anyway they finally got it done

      @Mekilla 17 and the dems blocked a law enforcement reform, I suppose something they view to be so important can wait… so that they can give biden the credit?

    • @Guatanama Buddha That law enforcement bill didn’t do a damn thing, that’s why they blocked it.

  5. Michael Shapiro | August 7, 2020 at 10:01 PM | Reply

    That doesn’t mean sht. There’s a thing called Congress & they can/will block it. Like Steve said last time, the people want the money & they want it now….

    • Executive actions, so far, are a blow hole. The grotesque is not king, not the the big guy. The President has powers. He’s not all powerful. The branches of government are structured as such, for a reason. We are a democratic society. No dicks need apply…

    • ElectricPickleAttack | August 7, 2020 at 10:53 PM | Reply

      In the very long term (as in after trump leaves office), yes. In the short term… no. Congress could try to pass a bill blocking Trump’s action but Trump would just veto it, and without a 2/3rds majority in both houses actually willing to show some spine, congress isn’t likely to overturn the veto. The more likely route is that congress would sue, kicking the matter to the courts, who would probably say “no, you can’t do that.” Trump would appeal and the whole thing would keep getting kicked up the totem pole until it ended up in the supreme court, who would probably say “no, you can’t do that and here’s why.” The way the executive orders are set up the president can do a lot with very little restriction from congress, although while he can use money already assigned he can’t actually apportion money towards an unintended purpose, as it is the role of congress to control the purse. Also any order he signs can be immediately rescinded by his successor. He COULD declare a national emergency to free up funds dedicated to dealing with fires, hurricanes, earthquakes, etc., which he already tried to do with the border wall. This would probably be a more viable use of that power and he could probably get away with it in the courts. In the long term though congress needs to more clearly define what a national emergency is and limit just how long an emergency lasts after a president declares one. We’ve technically been in a state of “emergency” with Iran since 1979, which frees up the president to act (in regards to Iran) in ways that would normally require approval from congress. If something goes on for over 40 years it may be a disaster but it probably isn’t an emergency (unless it’s like a meteor slowly headed for the planet or something).

      You have been lied to and brainwashed by Media propaganda, Hydroxychloroquine is 10x safer than Tylenol. Its been generic for decades, one of the most common treatment, its being used world wide, used for chronic diseases, the very comment you make shows how misinformed the Media warching public is.

    • He is tired and frustrated and bored with his complicated new toy that he can not operate, and he doesn not eant to llay with it anymore.

      I do not put it above him to dump Pence and make a spectacle chosing another VP, or dumping the R label and running on his own label.

      When he loses, he will attach his name and to anything he can sell to his diehard followers.

    As we all know, when Trump is a parrot repeating himself over and over like he did here with his words ” *The End Of The Year* ” is always the confirmation of him lying. So this is his political attempt too give him brownie points for the election again with lies. By the way, did Mexico ever pay for the wall as he mentioned at this time in early 2016 before he was president also? Similar at least money wise but different area. How did that work out for America? *Not to well at all* ! The difference here is he is playing with all our lives this time.

    TRUMP: “Democrats are holding relief hostage”
    *FACT: The House passed a bill over two months ago, and Moscow Mitch wouldn’t even read it. As he promised, he will obstruct ANY bill coming from democrats. He is holding relief hostage until democrats capitulate to HIS demands, he is NOT negotiating at all.*
    TRUMP: “Payroll tax cuts help the People”
    *FACT: Payroll tax cuts only help the rich, and exclude the unemployed, veterans, the disabled, and the elderly, which reduces the amount of aid given out overall while gutting Social Security, saving more money for republicans to embezzle from taxpayers for themselves.*
