It’s no secret that President Trump and the social media titans don’t have much love for each other.
While more than a few conservatives very well may agree with the Prez that the likes of Twitter and Facebook have a distinct bias against conservatives, we’ve also wondered what could ever be done to ensure these internet giants cease and desist from their collective heavy-handed silencing of anything and everything that even dares to slightly lean right.
With the official title of White House Correspondent, Jeff Mason of the Reuters news service is noting that White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany has cryptically told the WH press corps that President Trump that something, indeed, will be done.
.@realDonaldTrump will sign an executive order shortly about social media and internet companies, @PressSec tells reporters on Air Force One. The president has been very critical of @Twitter in the last 24 hours.
While McEnany was short on specifics, many on the Right are breathing a sign of relief that the very same supposedly “politically neutral” tech companies that have an almost total stranglehold on social media will finally be brought to heel.
While the likes of Google, Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter have a special dispensation from the US Congress that these Silicon Valley companies are not technically considered news organizations, there is speculation that the President very well may deem them such, therefore making them subject to anti-monopoly legislation.
Better known as the “Trump Stimulus Checks”, the $1,200 per individual and $2,400 for couples filing jointly, the Trump Administration’s announced on March 30, 2020 that the “Economic Impact Payments” would be hitting people’s checking accounts after as little as a hoped for three-week time frame.
Then at one of President Trump’s daily Covid-19 briefings at the White House, the wait time was shortened to a two-week period as of March 30.
Just yesterday afternoon, Larry Kudlow, Director of the U.S. Economic Council, announced the checks will “probably start going out…I think this week, perhaps early next.”
Your Coronavirus stimulus check may go out this week or next. Here’s what you need to know.
“The checks from the Treasury and the IRS probably start going out…I think this week, perhaps early next,” Larry Kudlow, Director of the U.S. Economic Council, said to CNBC.
That’s good news for millions of Americans who are waiting for their stimulus check due to the Coronavirus pandemic, which could be as much as $1,200 per person, $2,400 for married couples filing jointly and $500 per dependent child.
Not done yet, Forbes also noted that looking at this dispersal from a worst case scenario, AKA: If the Democrats get involved;
The House Ways and Means Committee memo says that check distribution could work like this
Week of April 13, 2020: 60 million checks distributed through direct deposit.
Week of May 4, 2020: The IRS will start sending paper stimulus checks
Each week thereafter: Approximately 5 million paper checks will be issued each week.
Since Covid-19 went world-wide, the same Dow Jones nearly slipped below 18,000 only a few short weeks ago. Under the leadership of President Trump, the DJIA has fought back to regain nearly half of the losses of the last two-months.
One other thing, keep in mind that when it comes to the national debt, we’re beholden to Communist China for a whopping $1.07 trillion.
But back to the topic at hand. While a guest on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Tonight with host Rebecca Mansour, Chang quite plainly stated that the US Government should physically seize treasury obligations (government bonds, or “CUBES”, normally held in Federal Reserve Banks) that were sold to China.
There are examples of Trump Derangement Syndrome… and then there are EXAMPLES of Trump Derangement Syndrome.
I’m fairly sure that few would argue that the antics of an apparent student at ASU (Arizona State University) captured for posterity by ASU’s Students for Trump are estrogen-fueled hysterics at their best.
For those that can’t make out what this Gamma-male, probable Gender Studies undergrad is spewing;
“Slash his throat! Every f*cking Republican. Suck my f*cking balls! Slash Republican throats! Slash Fascist throats! Death to Fascists!”
CRAZY LEFTIST ON COLLEGE CAMPUS
Watch as a tolerant leftist threatens to “slash the throat” of @realDonaldTrump and every Republican.
Supposedly, the ASU campus police are all over this. As reported by the Washington Times;
“We are aware of a video circulating on social media where an individual appears to be making threats,” the ASU police department tweeted Wednesday night. “We are working with the University to address the matter.”
Yeah… good luck with that. As if the crypto-Marxists calling the shots at ASU will do little more than give lip service to the general public.
But perhaps even better than this insignificant nobody losing his shit somewhere in the Sonoran Desert, would be the all caps tweet sent out by hasbeen Bette Midler. Apparently, she was a thing a few decades ago;
HE PINNED THIS. YOU THINK THIS IS A JOKE, DON’T YOU? IT’S NOT. HE MEANS IT. HE WILL CHANGE THE RULES AND HIS ENABLERS WILL LET HIM. IF HE WINS AGAIN, HE WILL RULE YOU UNTIL HE DIES, YOU DIE, OR BOTH. THEN…YOU’LL GET IVANKA. https://t.co/qdx1bZme80
Don’t let the “Aw, shucks” boyish Midwestern looks fool you. The former mayor of South Bend, Indiana, is just as radical and at the extreme fringes of the Left as anything that’s ever been vomited up by Bernie Sanders, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, or Ilhan Omar.
Buttigieg has already made quite clear that he want to splurge billions of hard earned tax dollars on healthcare for the millions who have already entered this nation illegally. Hizzoner has already made clear that the taxpayers would pickup the medical tab for those in the future who enter the nation illegally.
Not ending there, his own official website touts a hare-brained idea to add 1 million more federal employees for more Socialist bureaucracies known as the Climate Corps, the Community Health Corps, and the Intergeneraltional Service Corps.
One need not be a genius to see how many more federal regulations would be resurrected by Buttigieg’s Climate Corps after President Trump has already axed them. Then there’s the massive government takeover of healthcare with the hundreds of thousands of federal workers to be signed-on to the Community Health Corps and the Intergeneraltional Service Corps.
A MASSIVE federal take over of everything home healthcare related… what could go wrong? (Sarcasm off.)

But then there’s Buttigieg slamming all 63 million Americans who voted for Trump as “racists.” No provisions, no extenuating circumstances, no exceptions. All you Trumpers are simply racists… period. So sayeth St Pete. End of story.
As seen in the video below, Buttigieg was interviewed by CNN’s Jake Tapper (who, to his credit, actually asked some rather hard questions of the candidate);
“Republicans have been seizing, including in a new Trump ad, a statement you made that ‘Anyone who supported this president is, at best, looking the other way on racism.’ You’ve also said that on my show. That’s almost 63 million Americans who you’re painting with a pretty broad brush. Do you regret saying that at all?”
To wit, Buttigieg responded without hesitation;
“No. I’m very concerned about the racial division that this president has fostered, and I’m meeting a lot of voters who are no longer willing to look the other way on that, looking for a new political home.”
