The fake media was more merciless than usual over the weekend, starting with its onslaught of rage against Trump for initially refusing to sign a COVID deal full of pork and pet projects that had nothing to do with COVID relief.
Whereas Trump openly argued for $2,000 for Americans, the fake news media did what it did best: Frame Trump’s initial refusal to sign as refusing to provide relief for Americans, especially “unemployment benefits” (i.e., further disincentivizing people from working).
Thus, by the weekend’s end, Trump did sign the bill, ensuring that he reminded everyone who was truly responsible for the crisis in the first place: China. Much to the Democrats’ chagrin. After all, their “president-elect” is in bed with China.
“As President of the United States, it is my responsibility to protect the people of our country from the economic devastation and hardship that was caused by the China Virus … I understand that many small businesses have been forced to close as a result of harsh actions by Democrat-run states. Many people are back to work, but my job is not done until everyone is back to work.”

“Back to work.” Exactly! As shocking as this fact may seem to Democrats, people that want to work actually do exist. After all, working is the key to economic autonomy, which leads to real freedom and liberty.
Which the Democrats hate. That’s why the fake news media focused far more on “ending unemployment benefits” rather than Americans not receiving the $600 stimulus checks. Stimulus checks help stimulate the economy, whereas government dependence stifles the economy.
Nonetheless, that same stifling also means that Democrats consolidate their power in such a way that even Castro would envy, mainly because the United States offers up seriously significant wealth to control. Not to mention global influence.
In addition, Trump did not blindly sign the bill, however. In fact, he signed it with a twist: The bill must remove pork and it must increase payments to Americans. He rightfully called out the $600 stimulus as a joke, especially after months of Pelosian inaction, and he knows that Americans deserve a minimum of $2,000, especially after being ramrodded by China.
“Fortunately, as a result of my work with Congress in passing the CARES Act earlier this year, we avoided another Great Depression. Under my leadership, Project Warp Speed has been a tremendous success, my administration and I developed a vaccine many years ahead of wildest expectations, and we are distributing these vaccines, and others soon coming, to millions of people … As President, I have told Congress that I want far less wasteful spending and more money going to the American people in the form of $2,000 checks per adult and $600 per child.” [Source: The Daily Wire]
Then, Trump presented everyone with the real kicker: He is supporting the bill, though he is also seeking support from the Impoundment Act, which permits the President to “impound funds when he transmits a ‘special message’ in accordance with the ICA.
“I will sign the Omnibus and COVID package with a strong message that makes clear to Congress that wasteful items need to be removed. I will send back to Congress a redlined version, item by item, accompanied by the formal rescission request to Congress insisting that those funds be removed from the bill … I am signing this bill to restore unemployment benefits, stop evictions, provide rental assistance, add money for PPP, return our airline workers back to work, add substantially more money for vaccine distribution, and much more.”

Did you hear that, fake news media? The same 6,000 page bill that the House didn’t even read, yet voted in favor of, is being redlined by Trump. So much for him “playing golf all weekend” instead of working towards the American people’s benefit. In fact, it sounds like just about everyone plays around except for Trump.
Trump also indicated that the House must review Section 230, which pertains to the disturbing protections that anti-capitalism big tech currently enjoys (not to mention big tech’s impunity from its extreme irresponsibility).
“On Monday the House will vote to increase payments to individuals from $600 to $2,000. Therefore, a family of four would receive $5,200 … Additionally, Congress has promised that Section 230, which so unfairly benefits Big Tech at the expense of the American people, will be reviewed and either be terminated or substantially reformed.” [Source: The Daily Wire]
One can only hope that the House follows through, though someone certainly couldn’t be blamed for assuming the swamp will just fester like it has for months, doing everything but caring for the American people.
The United States needs Trump for its survival.
