The Traitorous “Gang of 18” Republican Senators!

Yes, traitorous!

Traitorous in the sense that we were implored to support republicans in the 2022 elections to prevent exactly what they ended up voting for.

I guess the results of the 2022 midterms reflected the support the republican senate candidates deserved.

At least with the democrats, we know where they stand.

The “Gang of 18” republican senators can all be rightfully described as “snakes in the grass” sell-outs!

All republican politicians will end up paying the price for The Gang of 18. Mark my words. The republicans’ contribution revenue stream has now officially dried up.

According to Anna Skinner, reporting for Newsweek, “The Senate voted to pass a $1.66 trillion omnibus spending bill Thursday afternoon with only a day remaining before a deadline that could partially shut down the government.”

The shutting down of our government, even a partial shutdown, would be the best thing that could happen for our country.  

“Eighteen Republicans joined all 48 Democrats and two independents [“Independents in name only!] in passing the bill, which must still pass through the House before it arrives on President Joe Biden’s desk to be signed into law. The final vote was 68-29.”

“If approved [by The House of Representatives], [and it was] the bill will extend government funding through September 30, 2023. It had been delayed for weeks as lawmakers argued over its proposals, which included funding around immigration, emergency disaster assistance and military aid to Ukraine.”

Now, even after this bill’s passage, they are still writing-in portions of the bill. It’s the democrats’ version of a late night voting dump.

“Before the Senate voted, former President Donald Trump slammed members of the Republican party for their potential help in passing the bill in a video message posted to Truth Social. Trump specifically targeted Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell [and rightfully so], who voted in favor of the bill.”

“Trump had urged all members of his party to vote against the bill and called the bill a ‘disaster’ for the Republican Party since Republican senators could have stopped it. Trump also criticized Democrats for pushing the bill through Congress before Republicans take control of the House in the New Year.”

“However, McConnell thought the bill was a win for Republicans because it increased the nation’s defense budget by nearly 10 percent, according to an article by The Hill. Nondefense and nonveteran spending received a more than 5 percent bump, totaling $772 billion.”

‘“The world’s greatest military will get the funding increase that it needs, outpacing inflation. Meanwhile, nondefense, nonveterans spending will come in below the rate of inflation, for a real-dollar cut,’ McConnell said on the Senate floor, according to The Hill.”

“If it is signed into law [and it will be], the bill will direct $19.8 billion toward Ukraine and NATO military aid and an additional $12.9 billion to help the Ukrainian economy as it battles through the Russia-Ukraine war, The Hill added.”

“The House is expected to vote on the bill Thursday night or Friday morning. Punchbowl News founder Jake Sherman tweeted that since the Senate added several items to the bill, it could ‘take a while to process and get to the House.’”

They did vote on the bill, and they passed it, and it didn’t take very long at all. It’s called “take the money and run.”

Here is a full list of Republican senators [traitors] who voted in favor of the bill (in alphabetical order):

Roy Blunt (Missouri)

John Boozman (Arkansas)

Shelley Capito (West Virginia)

Susan Collins (Maine)

John Cornyn (Texas)

Tom Cotton (Arkansas)

Lindsey Graham (South Carolina)

Jim Inhofe (Oklahoma)

Mitch McConnell (Kentucky)

Jerry Moran (Kansas)

Lisa Murkowski (Alaska)

Rob Portman (Ohio)

Mitt Romney (Utah)

Mike Rounds (South Dakota)

Richard Shelby (Alabama)

John Thune (South Dakota)

Roger Wicker (Mississippi)

Todd Young (Indiana)

This “Gang of 18” should go down in infamy, regarding their unnecessary capitulation to the democrats, and their disregard of their constituents and conservative Americans everywhere.

From the mouth of liberal propaganda news headquarters itself, CNN, we hear some of the lowlights of the omnibus bill.

Tami Luhby and Katie Lobosco report for CNN, “What’s in the massive government funding bill? Some [most, if not all] Congress members may not even know.”

And that’s another thing. Who actually wrote-up this 4,000 plus page behemoth of a bill?

And shouldn’t the actual author(s) be published on the bill?

Just sayin’.

“The House passed a $1.7 trillion yearlong federal government spending bill on Friday, paving the way for it to be signed into law by President Joe Biden.”

“The legislation includes $772.5 billion for nondefense discretionary programs and $858 billion in defense funding, according to a bill summary from Democratic Sen. Patrick Leahy, chair of the Senate Committee on Appropriations. That would represent an increase in spending in both areas for fiscal year 2023.”

A few hundred billion dollars here, and a few hundred billion dollars there, and pretty soon we’re talking about some real money!

“The sweeping package includes roughly $45 billion in emergency assistance to Ukraine and NATO allies, and an overhaul of the electoral vote-counting law…”

“It also would provide a boost in spending for disaster aid [But not for Florida hurricane relief, however. Hmmm, I wonder why?]…, and additional funds for the US Capitol Police, according to Leahy’s summary and one from Sen. Richard ‘Benedict Arnold’ Shelby of Alabama, the top Republican on the Senate Appropriations Committee.”

So, democrat politicians (and The Gang of 18) want the police defunded for us, but additionally funded for them. Isn’t that special?

“And the legislation contains several major Medicaid provisions, particularly one that could disenroll up to 19 million people from the nation’s health insurance program for low-income Americans.”

Well, isn’t that wonderful as well?

“However, the bill, which runs more than 4,000 pages [more than three times the size of The Bible], left out several measures that some lawmakers had fought to include. An expansion of the child tax credit, as well as multiple other corporate and individual tax breaks, did not make it into the final bill.”

That’s odd.

“The spending bill, which would keep the government operating through September, the end of the fiscal year, is the product of lengthy negotiations between top congressional Democrats and Republicans.”

Ahh, yes…, we love those “top congressional democrats and republicans!” Especially our top “bend over” republican snakes in the grass!

“Here’s what’s in the bill [some of the lowlights]:”

“More aid for Ukraine: The spending bill would provide roughly $45 billion to help support Ukraine’s efforts to defend itself against Russia’s attack.”

We surely can’t leave Ukraine off of the gravy train.

“Also, it would provide $13 billion for economic support to the Ukrainian government. Other funds would address humanitarian and infrastructure needs…”

Our own economy and humanitarian, and infrastructure needs are all good here, so…

“Emergency disaster assistance: The bill would appropriate more than $38 billion in emergency funding to help Americans in the west and southeast affected by recent natural disasters, including tornadoes, hurricanes, flooding and wildfires.”

Like I mentioned earlier, Florida hurricane relief is not included here for some reason. I wonder why that would be?

“Overhaul of the electoral vote-counting law: A provision in the legislation aims at making it harder to overturn a certified presidential election, the first legislative response to the US Capitol insurrection and then-President Donald Trump’s campaign to stay in power despite his loss in 2020. The legislation would clarify the vice president’s role while overseeing the certification of the electoral result to be completely ceremonial.”

This is the “how dare you attempt to question our illegitimate election results” portion of the program.  

“Funding for January 6 attack prosecutions: The bill would provide $2.6 billion for US Attorneys, which would include funding efforts “to further support prosecutions related to the January 6 attack on the Capitol and domestic terrorism cases,” according to a fact sheet from the House Appropriations Committee.”

“Domestic terrorists” as in concerned parents at school board meetings?

And would that “further support of prosecutions related to January 6” include Nancy Pelosi and all of her FBI co-conspirators?

“The package also gives $11.3 billion to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, including for efforts to investigate extremist violence and domestic terrorism. The funding measures are part of nearly $39 billion that would be for the Justice Department.”

We can’t neglect the support for our politically weaponized versions of our own Gestapo and KGB, can we?

“Changes to Medicaid and other health care programs: The spending bill would phase out the requirement that prevented states from disenrolling Medicaid recipients…”

Hmmm, seems legit.

“Under the spending bill, states would be able to start evaluating Medicaid enrollees’ eligibility and terminating their coverage as of April 1.”

Those damn Medicaid enrollees, wanting to be all heathy and stuff!

“Up to 19 million people could lose their Medicaid benefits, according to estimates, though many would be eligible for other coverage.”

Exactly what “other coverage” would that be?

Maybe we’ll get the special kind of coverage that Congress enjoys instead! Ya, that must be it!

“Plus, the package would provide more money for the National Institutes of Health [NIH] and the Centers for Disease Control…”

Oh, goodie! More money for the political, fake science, “doctors” to promote liberal control policies, propaganda, and out and out lies.

“It would include nearly $53 billion to address higher inflation [by actually increasing inflation] and $2.7 billion, a 25% increase, to support critical services and housing assistance for veterans and their families.”

I would really like to know exactly how this money will “support critical services” and “housing assistance.”

Why do I think we would be way, way better served by just turning this money over directly to an organization like Tunnels to Towers or Wounded Warrior Project?  

“The bill would also help families who have had their food stamp benefits stolen since October 1 through what’s known as ‘SNAP skimming. It would provide them with retroactive federal reimbursement of the funds, which criminals steal by attaching devices to point-of-sale machines or PIN pads to get card numbers and other information from electronic benefits transfer cards.”

Say what? Is this really that big of a thing? I’m sure it would be hilarious to see exactly how this would be processed and administered. Why do I think the criminal will find a way to double dip on the skimming and the reimbursement? Just a wild, but educated, guess.

“Help to pay utility bills: The bill would provide $5 billion for the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program. Combined with the $1 billion contained in the earlier continuing resolution, this would be the largest regular appropriation for the program, according to the National Energy Assistance Directors Association. Home heating and cooling costs, and the applications for federal aid in paying the bills have soared this year.”

Here’s an idea! Why not just reverse some of the idiotic democrat anti-energy policy, and nip this in the bud, so people won’t need assistance to begin with? Of course, with that scenario, people would be less dependent on government, and we can’t have that!

“Additional funding for the US Capitol Police: The bill would provide an additional $132 million for the Capitol Police for a total of nearly $735 million. It would allow the department to hire up to 137 sworn officers and 123 support and civilian personnel, bringing the force to a projected level of 2,126 sworn officers and 567 civilians.”

As I mentioned earlier, democrat politicians (and The Gang of 18) want the police defunded for us, but additionally funded for them. They require 2,700 people to protect 635 representatives? That’s roughly four people for every representative. Boy, they must really be important! On our end of things, we’re lucky to have one police officer for every 300 of us.

“It would also give $2 million to provide off-campus security for lawmakers in response to evolving and growing threats.”

I’m not even sure what to say about this. If I did, it would be nothing good.

“More resources for children’s mental health and for substance abuse: The bill would provide more funds to increase access to mental health services for children and schools. It also would invest more money to address the opioid epidemic and substance use disorder.”

Again, not a bad thing. But while we are allowing tons of drugs to flow over our border every day, it seems like an attempt to additionally fund our missile defense system with fly swatters.

“Investments in homelessness prevention and affordable housing: The legislation would provide $3.6 billion for homeless assistance grants, a 13% increase. It would serve more than 1 million people experiencing homelessness.”

Oh, yeah! Because these current homelessness prevention programs are working so well!

“The package also would funnel nearly $6.4 billion to the Community Development Block Grant formula program and related local economic and community development projects that benefit low and moderate income areas and people, an increase of almost $1.6 billion.”

Another stupid and wasteful program that will just continue to line the pockets of people who are talking a good game, but actually doing nothing to help these low income areas.

For a good example of these wonderfully wasteful programs, please let me refer you to one of my prior blogs:

“More support for the environment: The package would provide an additional $576 million for the Environmental Protection Agency [EPA], bringing its funding up to $10.1 billion.”

More increased funding for a government agency with way too much uncontrolled power as it is.

Let me just add that all of the alphabet of government agencies, with all of their unelected Nazi wannabes, are up to no good, and are all involved in only controlling us more. That would include, for starters, in no particular order, the IRS, NSA, NIH, CDC, DHS, DEA, FBI, CIA, EPA, DOE, FCC, FEC, NRC, and the DOJ. And like I said, this is a list just for starters.   

In addition, we see funding for:

A Michelle Obama “trail” for $3.6 million,

An LGBTQ museum in New York City for $3 million,

$410 million to secure foreign borders, with nothing to secure our own borders,

$7.5 million to study the “domestic radicalization phenomenon,” whatever that means. Since they feel it is a “radicalization,” I can only assume it is a study to target and minimalize normal, everyday, patriotic citizens.

And, $200 million for something called the “Gender equity and Equality Action Fund.” Here, again, I’d like to see an actual accounting of where this money is going, and how it is actually being used.

And there is more disgusting wasteful spending we will hear about as people continue to dissect this monstrosity of a bill.

Oh, and I forgot to mention they threw in a 16.5% raise for themselves. How’s that for a cherry on top?!

Thank you “Gang of 18” for your irresponsible and unexplainable support of the democrats and their continued degradation of our great country. You have officially become heroes of “the swamp,” and newly minted members of “the dark side.”

The Rise of the “Decepticons!”

The term “Decepticon” may be a foreign one to many of my readers, and a very familiar term to others.

The “Decepticons” are a part of the “Transformers” family. That may help more of my readers.  

The name “Decepticon” refers to deception, or attempting to deceive.

That’s where I’m trying to go with this.

Let’s call out some of our political “decepticons”…, those pretending to be Independents, those pretending to be Republicans, and those pretending to be Americans!

Regarding The Senate…, they say the democrats “control The Senate,” which means they control the agenda, and what gets voted on and what doesn’t. This is because the Senate is split 50-50, with Vice President Harris breaking the tie, making it 51-50. 

But wait…, is it really? How can that be?  There are only 48 democrat senators in The Senate.

It’s true.

If you look at the make-up of The Senate, there are 50 republicans, 48 democrats, and 2 “independents.”

The two senators who identify as being an “independent” are Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont and Senator Angus King of Maine, however, they also say these senators choose to caucus with the democrats, thus adding to their numbers.

I say they shouldn’t be able to have it both ways.  Either identify as a democrat or not.

This brings to the forefront the most egregious “decepticon” of all, Senator Bernie Sanders. Honestly, I had never even heard of Senator Angus King before.

Does anyone actually believe that Bernie Sanders is an Independent?

I mean he has run for president as a democrat (TWICE), and his socialist ideologies would even place him on the far left edge of the democrat party these days, which is really saying something! Russia and China would probably even have to reign him in a bit!

Our next group of “decepticons” would be those “republicans” who should really identify as democrats, and those whose allegiance really lies with “the swamp.”

Heading up the “swamp” list of “decepticons” are Senators Mitch “Swamp Turtle” McConnell and Lindsey Graham.  

Those “republicans” who we see “transforming” into democrats from time to time are, Mitt Romney, Liz Cheney, Adam Kinzinger, Susan Collins, and Lisa Murkowski.

The list of the democrat “decepticons” masquerading as Americans, while disregarding the oath they all took to follow and protect The Constitution, is quite long, in fact.

Just for starters, this list would include “the big guy,” the “illegitimate guy,” Joe Biden, “Cackling” Kamala Harris, Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, Ayanna Pressley, Maxine Waters, Jerrold Nadler, Adam Schiff, Pramiya Jayapal, Eric Swalwell, and Cori Bush. And again, that’s just for starters.

Yes, my friends, it’s getting to the point where the democrat “decepticons” don’t even bother to hide the fact that they’re anti-American anymore. This can be done when they aren’t even worried about the opinion of voters anymore, since the democrats can just manipulate the vote in their favor…, and get away with it.

With “friends” like these, who needs enemies?!

The “republican” leader in the senate, Mitch McConnell, was among 19 Republicans to vote for the “infrastructure” bill.  Let’s take a look at him and the other “republicans” who helped it over the finish line.

Rick Rouan for USA TODAY reports that, “A group of 19 Senate Republicans, led by Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, joined the entire Democratic caucus in passing a $1.2 trillion infrastructure package on Tuesday.”

“The bill passed with a vote of 69-30, more than two weeks after President Joe Biden declared ‘we have a deal’ with a bipartisan group of negotiators.”

A bipartisan group of sell-outs more like.

So, what’s in the “infrastructure” bill?

According to CNN, “The Republican National Committee has claimed, “Joe Biden’s ‘infrastructure’ plan is not really about infrastructure, it is another multi-trillion dollar far left wish list.”

“According to the GOP, ‘Only 7% of the bill’s spending is for what Americans traditionally think of as infrastructure.’”

“Under their ‘traditional’ definition of infrastructure, the GOP limits what counts as infrastructure spending to include the $115 billion the plan allocates for modernizing highways, roads and main streets, $25 billion to airports and $17 billion for inland waterways, ports and ferries.”

Well, that accounts for the $.2 part of the $1.2 trillion. Hardly enough to warrant this bill being called the “infrastructure” bill.

Even with the democrats’ liberal definition of “infrastructure” (pun intended), “infrastructure” still only accounts for about 30% of the spending in the bill.

Why do the democrats have to be so consistently deceitful and disingenuous?

Why are “traditional” definitions not good enough anymore?

The simple answer is, they have to change the playing field when they know they aren’t capable of winning if they are forced to play by the accepted rules.    

Rick Rouan, for USA TODAY, continues, “Biden said after the vote on Tuesday that he called most of the 19 Republican senators who voted for the infrastructure bill to praise them.”

Ugh.

‘”You have, and no doubt you will, disagree with me on many issues. But where we can agree, we should,’ he [Biden] said. ‘And here on this bill, we proved that we can still come together to do big things, important things, for the American people.’”

It seems you’re getting better at reading your teleprompter coherently, Illegitimate Joe!

Did these “republicans” actually read the “infrastructure” bill?

If so, whose side are they on, anyway?

Which Senate Republicans voted for the infrastructure deal?

Roy Blunt, R-Mo.

Richard Burr, R-N.C.

Shelley Moore Capito, R-W.Va.

Bill Cassidy, R-La.

Susan Collins, R-Maine

Kevin Cramer, R-N.D.

Mike Crapo, R-Idaho

Deb Fischer, R-Neb.

Lindsey Graham, R-S.C.

Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa

John Hoeven, R-N.D.

Mitch McConnell, R-Ky.

Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska

Rob Portman, R-Ohio

James E. Risch, R-Idaho

Mitt Romney, R-Utah

Dan Sullivan, R-Alaska

Thom Tillis, R-N.C.

Roger F. Wicker, R-Miss.

Remember these names.

I can understand the list of the usual RINOs [Republicans In Name Only]: Murkowski, Romney, and Collins…, but what about the rest?  Especially Mitch McConnell and Lindsey Graham?!

Mitch McConnell and Lindsey Graham?!!!!!!!

To put this in perspective, that would be like Chuck Schumer voting to support former President Trump’s infrastructure proposal.

And that would be a cold day in hell.

Apparently, the republicans don’t need to wait for cold day in hell.  These “republicans” were willing to jump right into the fire with this deal with the devil.  

Again, with “friends” like these, who needs enemies?!

Most “Trumpers” are not Republicans.

It’s true!

Most “Trumpers,” people who support President Trump and his “America First” ideology, do not feel an allegiance to the Republican Party.

I know I don’t.

And why would they?

Why should they?

As we prepare for the inauguration of Illegitimate Joe, let’s take a walk down memory lane.

If you’ll recall, back in 2016, then candidate Donald Trump received NO support from the establishment republicans.

The RNC (Republican National Committee) only offered their support once Donald Trump won the republican presidential primary.

Early on in the election against Hillary Clinton, the RNC seemed to be hedging its bets, not wanting to potentially hurt the conventional republican candidates for The Congress and The Senate.

It wasn’t until later in the game, when candidate Donald Trump appeared to be building some momentum, that the RNC threw its full support behind him.

Even at this time, establishment republicans offered him no real support.

It wasn’t until Donald Trump shocked the world and beat Hillary Clinton (please note this was back in the day before unchecked election fraud) that the establishment republicans decided to “play ball” with the newly elected president.

Note: The election fraud problem (or a lack thereof) would be corrected by the democrats four years later.

So, the establishment republicans begrudgingly “played ball” with President Trump, but it wasn’t until his policies started bearing fruit, and became more and more popular with the American people, that they actually made it seem like they had gotten on board.

Then, even as they used President Trump’s popularity and his supporters to gain their own re-elections, they just as quickly abandoned their support for The President once the election had officially been stolen from him.

The establishment republican leaders I am specifically referring to are Mitch (The Swamp Turtle) McConnell, Lindsey (The Lying Loser) Graham, and Kevin (Kiss A$$) McCarthy.

Their true colors were demonstarted again, today, as McConnell and McCarthy attended church along with Biden, Harris, and the rest of the democrat crew.

Are you kidding me?!

After they just had the 2020 election shoved up their backsides?!

The “bend over boys,” McConnell and McCarthy, obviously have no limit to their shameless politics.

If President Trump decides to run for president again in 2024, it won’t be as a republican, it’ll be as a third-party candidate.

You heard it here first, folks!

Donald trump will be the candidate for the “America First Party” in 2024!

Screw the republicans!

Screw the democrats!

Screw the mainstream media!

And, screw social media!

Screw everybody, except the American people!   

President Trump will have learned his lessons well, and before the 2024 election, he will have his own media company and his own social media platform, and there will be no stopping him!

The democrats won’t even be able to manufacture enough votes to steal the next election!  

Let’s just hope there is enough left of America to save.

C’MON MAN!

You can say that again!

According to Joe Hernandez and Nicholas Pugliese of WHYY-FM, a PBS and NPR affiliate in Philadelphia, “During his daily press briefing Wednesday, Murphy [Governor Phil Murphy of New Jersey] unleashed an uncharacteristically angry tirade [Why does an “angry tirade” need to be characterized?] against U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for comments he made earlier in the day.”

anj 1

“The Republican from Kentucky suggested that some states and cities should declare bankruptcy instead of relying on the federal government to prop up public finances that have been obliterated by the COVID-19 pandemic.”

Please notice how McConnell is tagged as “the republican from Kentucky, but that Murphy is not identified as a democrat.

Specifically, according to Ted Barrett and Manu Raju of CNN, “Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell took a hard line Wednesday against more funding for state and local governments in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak, saying that Republicans are not interested in ‘revenue replacement for state governments’ or ‘solving their pension problems.’”

“McConnell’s tough words came a day after the Senate approved a $484 billion bill [known as coronavirus response bill phase 3.5] to help small businesses and hospitals respond to the coronavirus outbreak.”

“McConnell suggested in interviews Wednesday that Democrats are trying to get the federal government to essentially bail out state and local governments for bad decisions they have made related to public pension obligations and other sources of expensive debt.”

‘“I would certainly be in favor of allowing states to use the bankruptcy route,’ McConnell told Hugh Hewitt in a radio interview. ‘It saves some cities. And there’s no good reason for it not to be available. My guess is their first choice would be for the federal government to borrow money from future generations to send it down to them now so they don’t have to do that. That’s not something I’m going to be in favor of.’”

Agreed.  Why should states, that have been fiscally responsible, now be forced to bail out those states which have blown their budgets year after year after year, and spent money they never had, or were ever going to have.

anj 3

“New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, a Democrat, also slammed McConnell’s remarks Wednesday, calling it ‘one of the dumbest statements of all time.’”

I ask you…, why should the people of McConnell’s state, Kentucky, who are looked down upon as “ignorant hillbillies” by the “oh so wise and smart east coast liberals,” pick-up the tab because these “oh so wise and smart east coast liberals” don’t know how to balance their checkbook?

anj 4

And it’s gone way beyond the “balancing of checkbooks.” These “oh so wise and smart east coast liberals” have the equivalent of multiple personal loans, multiple second mortgages, and a wallet full of maxed out credit cards.

anj 6

Governor Cuomo then told his brother, CNN’s Chris Cuomo on “Cuomo Prime Time,” ‘“He then says this is a bailout to the blue states, which was a really offensive statement.’”

This is the worst kind of “offensive statement” for a liberal…, BECAUSE IT’S THE TRUTH!

‘“Come on, man,’ Murphy said. ‘That is completely and utterly irresponsible [referring to McConnell’s suggestion that the states consider bankruptcy].’”

“C’mon yourself, Murph!

It is you and your blue state friends who are, and who have been, “utterly irresponsible.”

“Murphy suggested that, absent federal help, states would be able to stay financially afloat but be forced to make painful decisions about spending cuts.”

Cry us all a river Murphy.

Everyone, everywhere, is forced to make painful decisions from time to time.  That’s why you all are in the position you’re in.  No one chooses to be responsible or accountable.

‘“We will gut the living daylights in every state in America out of the services — the exact services — that our citizens need right now. We will just cut, cut, cut, and cut,’ Murphy warned.”

No, Governor Murphy…, not “every state…,” just those states, like yours, which have been mismanaged, while spending foolishly and irresponsibly for decades.

“Murphy again called on federal lawmakers to provide direct cash assistance to states that have been hardest hit by the pandemic so they could help residents ‘in their most profound hour of need.’”

anj 2

Are you not aware Governor Murphy, that on March 25th, Congress passed phase 3 of the coronavirus response bill, called The CARES Act [Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security]?

This was a $2 trillion [that’s $2,000,000,000,000.00] relief bill that has already targeted $340 billion [that’s $340,000,000,000.00] in aid to cities and states, based on need, regarding those states affected the worst by the virus.

Your share of that should be quite substantial, Governor.

In fact, New Jersey would be second in line for this money based on the coronavirus case numbers, and would stand to receive over $40 billion [that’s $40,000,000,000.00] in aid!

SO, WHAT IN THE HELL ARE YOU CRYING ABOUT, GOVERNOR?

anj 8

Is that a “depends” you’re wearing for a mask?

I don’t see anybody bailing me out, my friends, our families or our businesses if we choose to be stupid with our money.

But apparently you “oh so wise and smart east coast, blue state, liberals” don’t have to play by the same rules as everyone else.

You just spend, spend, spend and spend, and then expect someone else to pick up the bill?

Like I said…, I don’t see anybody bailing me out, my friends, our families or our businesses if we choose to be stupid with our money.

As usual…, your liberal sense of entitlement just rubs all of us ignorant “hillbillies” and deplorables the wrong way.
