Josh Hawley is clearly being groomed as a placid figure to control part of the right-wing in a post-Trump era. They are aware that anyone under the age of 50 probably isn’t into Libertarianism, given that even the softest dope has realized that this doesn’t benefit normal people, so they come out with this guy.
A second set of stimulus checks could be in the works for millions of Americans, based on Congress’ ongoing negotiations for more coronavirus relief legislation.
But a fight is brewing over the amount that will be written on those checks.
Currently, those talks point to new direct payments to Americans of $600 per individual and $600 per child. In contrast, the first stimulus checks sent earlier this year were for $1,200 per adult and $500 per child under 17.
Now, Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo., plans to go on the Senate floor on Friday to try to push for those checks to be increased to $1,200 per individual and $2,400 for married couples who file jointly.
“Tomorrow I will go to the Senate floor to ask for an up or down vote on my bill to provide a direct payment of $1,200 to working Americans, $2,400 for couples, $500 for kids,” Hawley tweeted on Thursday. “This is the Covid relief working families need.”
Last week, Hawley introduced the bill for second $1,200 direct payments to Americans. At the time, he said he intended to ask for an up or down vote on the proposal if needed.
Hawley has also teamed up with Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., to come up with an amendment for $1,200 checks that could be included in the legislation Washington lawmakers are working on.
Teaming up with Bernie! Edgy!
Giving people $1200 checks in response to what they’ve done with this coronavirus lockdown is like if someone tells you they’re starving and you vomit in their face and say “bon appetit.”
People have had their entire lives destroyed by this lockdown. Many or even most people have lost businesses and careers that they spent their entire adult lives building. Imagine working for decades to carve out a small business, then having it ruined over this hoax. A lot of you reading this don’t have to imagine it – you’re living it.
What’s actually even worse than that – because yes, it is even worse than that – is that people have no ability to rebuild. All of this wealth has been transferred to the ruling elite. The richest man in the world, Jeff Bezos, has almost doubled his wealth, adding more than $70 billion, and that doesn’t even begin to scratch the surface of just how much has been looted. This is government policy is designed to transfer the wealth to the elite, and once they have it, it is no longer moving around among the people. It is permanently out of our reach. I suspect UBI is on the horizon.
Money is a game, but it symbolizes real values – property, primarily. The coronavirus hoax gives the elite the opportunity to use money to transfer what will end up being virtually all property from the people to them. That then sets the stage for a totally new society, where the peasants are truly landless. This was done under Mao in China and is known as the the “Chinese Land/Agrarian Reform”, also under the Bolsheviks in Russia and is known as “Collectivization” or the “Stolypin land reform”. In both scenarios, the wealth and properties of the people were stolen and transferred to the state, run by a ruling elite.
The dollar is being collapsed, and that is going to steal even more from people. Most working class people, and a good portion of the middle class, bought into the idiocy they teach you in school that saving dollars is a good idea, and all that wealth will be stolen from them. The rich will be able to pay off their debt for pennies on the dollar, with the wealth they’ve gained from your bank account. That is, the value that you created with your blood and sweat are kept in dollars, changes hands when the dollar becomes useless and all the debt they have disappears.
What is a man whose lost everything supposed to do with $1200? What does $1200 buy? Two weeks worth of groceries for a family? It’s nothing. It’s a joke.
Obviously, it’s better that they give it than not, but it’s also all part of the plan. Things are going to get really bad, you’re not going to have anything, then they’re going to swoop in and give you an apartment in a high rise condo and a monthly allowance in the form of credits transferred to a computer chip in your hand, and you’re going to say “thank you, sir” or you’re going to go to a camp.
That is the plan, at least.
The GOP is going to send out people to keep you believing in democracy. I don’t necessarily disagree with anything I’ve seen from Josh Hawley (other than the standard anti-China nonsense), but it is clear that he’s being groomed to take a role in trying to make people believe that there is some future for change through national politics. Assuming Joe Biden assumes office, there isn’t any future in politics. That will be the end of it.
Just don’t get caught back up in this. It will be easy to get caught up in it. It’s comforting, but it’s not real.
This is like if you’re a child and some guy breaks into your home and slits your parents’ throats in front of you and then his partner comes in and is like “shhh, don’t worry – you’re parents are just sleeping, and when they wake up, they’re going to take you to get a brand new puppy. For now, you can have this bag of Reese’s Pieces.”
