OTHERS HAVE TO FEEL THE SAME – JUST NO MEDIA COVERAGE
The more the unrest in Cuba unfolds, the less it seems the MSM is covering it, and the less the current administration seems to be talking about it. An administration who has no problem calling us racist and asks the U.N. to investigate us, is awfully quiet on Cuba. Why is that?
We know many at the top of government now (like Senator Bernie Sanders) see Cuba as a model, but shouldn’t we be doing all we can to support the people of Cuba? What have you heard from the mouths of leaders like Schumer and Pelosi on Cuba? Why are they afraid to support freedom?
When Black Lives Matter said this:
Black Lives Matter “condemns the U.S. federal government’s inhumane treatment of Cubans, and urges it to immediately lift the economic embargo. This cruel and inhumane policy, instituted with the explicit intention of destabilizing the country and undermining Cuban’s right to choose their own government, is at the heart of the current crisis. Since 1962, the United States has forced pain and suffering on the people of Cuba by cutting off food, medicine and supplies, costing the tiny island nation an estimated $130 billion.”
They blamed the United States for Cuba. Where are the Democratic Leaders standing for us?
The statement went on to praise the Cuban Government for harboring escaped U.S. police killers:
For providing refuge to “black revolutionaries like Assata Shakur,” (convicted of murdering New Jersey State Trooper Werner Foerster). Shakur escaped prison in 1979 and fled to Cuba, where she was granted asylum by Fidel Castro.
“Do Democratic Leaders care about and support our police and nation?
The BLM statement went on to claim that:
“The people of Cuba are being punished by the U.S. government.“
Where was the coverage of the most outspoken Republican Senator (Marco Rubio) who said:
His Senate office is prepared to use its resources to help the leaders of Black Lives Matter relocate to Cuba. “My office stands ready to help the leaders of the Black Lives Matter organization emigrate to #Cuba. The extortionist ring known as the Black Lives Matter organization took a break today from shaking down corporations for millions & buying themselves mansions to share their support for the Communist regime in #Cuba,” Rubio said.
Pretty strong right? Did you see coverage? Why not? Is it because most of the American people would agree with him?
It can’t be just me who feels this way.
ISSUE TWO: THE NEW ENTITLEMENT
The new temporary child support program, which we told you would never go away, is already getting pressure to become “permanent.” Here’s a story on the Congress person who pushed it:
“She’s not resting on her political victory. She’s vowing to keep pushing to make the expanded CTC permanent. “The expanded credit is in place for only one year. We cannot stop now,” DeLauro stated last week. “We must seize this moment to permanently expand the credit. Doing so would cut childhood poverty in half and help us rebuild our middle class for the next generation.”
Let’s pause right there for a second. Remember that quote from her and the President. Childhood poverty will be cut in half. That’s a lie. It won’t even cut in half their cries for us to increase payments is my prediction.
She went on:
“If you did not earn enough to file income taxes in the past two years, you can sign up to receive payments by using the IRS Non-filer Sign-up Tool.”
That’s funny. We know most of those receiving it did not pay taxes. You make it sound like the exception. It’s the other way around.
Finally, she said she sold it to the President this way:
“I said, ‘Mr. President, you’re under this portrait of Franklin Roosevelt. Think about it. With the stroke of a pen, he lifted 90 percent of seniors out of poverty with the Social Security Act. You can lift 50 percent of children out of poverty in the same way.”
Do we really want to talk about the almost bankrupt social security system again? Remember, if you earn $100K a year they take $6,250 from your pay and your employer must match that, so $13,500 to “invest” in your future. You realize if they invested that for real in your name you would have well over seven figures in your retirement fund and not be taxed again on an average 2021 payout of $1,543.00.
Now, I know the argument is that “people would not do that on their own, so the government must do it for them.” Fine, I get it. But, since “it’s my retirement” why can’t the government give me options on how to invest “my retirement dollars?” You can control it, give me options, like the stock market. I guarantee you I would be better off, and the $1,543.00 would be much – much – much – higher.
It can’t be just me who feels this way.
ISSUE THREE – GETTING NERVOUS ARE WE?
Interesting tidbit in the news this AM. In New Hampshire the current popular Governor has indicated he may well run for the Senate seat held by a Democrat in 2022.
Guess what’s in the news on Monday morning?
Democratic Sen. Maggie Hassan says she wants to build bridges as she tries to hold on to one of the most competitive Senate seats in the country next year.
She has indicated she wants to be part of the bipartisan group of senators now for the infrastructure group and no doubt other measures. Interesting, right? Now she wants to move to the center? Where has she been as we’ve spent the future of our kids and grandkids away, defunded the police and labeled us all racist? Now you see the light?
Here’s hoping Governor Chris Sununu runs and the people of New Hampshire get to voice their opinion.
I can’t be the only one who feels this way.
