From The Bible, Luke 2:1-20
The Birth of Jesus
1 And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be taxed.
2 (This was the first census that took place while Cyrenius was governor of Syria.) 3 And everyone went to their own town to register.
4 So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the house and line of David. 5 He went there to register with Mary, who was pledged to be married to him and was expecting a child. 6 While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, 7 and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in swaddling clothes and placed him in a manger, because there was no room available for them at an inn.
8 And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. 9 An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. 10 And the angel said unto them, do not be afraid: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. 11 Today in the town of David a Savior has been born unto you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. 12 This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in swaddling clothes and lying in a manger.”
13 Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying,
14 Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.
15 When the angels had left them and gone into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, “Let’s go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us about.”
16 So they hurried off and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby, who was lying in the manger. 17 When they had seen him, they spread the word concerning what had been told them about this child, 18 and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them. 19 But Mary kept all these things and pondered them in her heart. 20 The shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things they had heard and seen, which were just as they had been told.
May you and yours have a blessed Christmas season, Christian or not.

Thank you, MrEricksonRules.
The COVID Stimulus being peddled has a lot nonsense having nothing to with bailing out American local businesses but offers foreign aid. Why?
Well take for example Nita Lowey (NY) wanting and receiving millions of dollars for Burma. Its never published voluntarily to the public who is sponsoring money to these foreign countries in these bills because she’s probably receiving a kickback if the money goes through.
Of course it’ll have to be laundered first. Perhaps through a charitable organization she is connected to (worked for the Clintons).
But how else can a congressperson whose paycheck never stops, even through a pandemic or a government shutdown supposed to get by?
How are swamp monsters (establishment politicians regardless of party affiliation) supposed to become millionaires if they don’t get a little taste from making these deals?
If President Trump’s landslide win over Biden isn’t proven for POTUS to continue his presidency we can expect more DC corruption.
This is why Trump cannot count on the GOP. The money tree has dried up in.many ways for the establishment politicians. Our money, tax dollars.
I totally agree with everything you said. Trump is Trump. He’s really not a “republican.” He’s Trump, who had to fly under the republican flag. And the republicans will only support him when it benefits them. Even with Trump in office, we could see how deep the DC corruption runs. The FBI and the DOJ only have the swamp’s agenda in mind. Thanks for your comment.
Merry Christmas Yo’ster!
