Biden Calls For Second Stimulus “A Hell of a Lot Bigger” Than $2 Trillion

Biden wants an environmental stimulus program.

Joe Biden called for a second stimulus bailout in the wake of the coronavirus recession in an interview with Politico published on Saturday, claiming that the economy needs a stimulus that is a “hell of a lot bigger” than the $2 trillion CARES Act that was signed into law last month.

Biden said that the country needs a “trillion-dollar infrastructure program that can be implemented really rapidly,” that would be focused upon “dealing with environmental things that create good-paying jobs.”

Biden’s call for an enviromentally-oriented stimulus package sounds similar to appeals from more progressive Democrats to utilize the coronavirus recession to pass sweeping environmental packages such as the Green New Deal. New York progressive congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez stated that she “loved to see” the American oil and energy industry struggling in the wake of the recession and declining gas prices, openly stating that she wants to use the crisis as a means to advance her environmental agenda.

The former Vice President seemed to adopt rhetoric from some of his progressive primary opponents such as Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, taking a page out of the books of the populist Democrats by accusing the Trump administration of setting up lacking oversight for the stimulus package. He reiterated a false talking point from mainstream media operatives, claiming President Trump is delaying payments to small businesses to place his name on checks. “The guy waits to hold up money because he wants to make sure his name is on the checks!

Biden has struggled to remain a relevant figure in the national political arena in the midst of the pandemic. His sudden marketing of more drastic Democratic policy views, that resemble the Green New Deal, may be little more than an attempt to make noise.

President Donald Trump Will Move the 2020 Republican Convention Out of North Carolina

The state had interfered in the convention.

President Donald Trump confirmed that he will move the 2020 Republican Convention away from Charlotte, North Carolina in a series of tweets Tuesday night. The state’s Democratic governor, Roy Cooper, had refused to allow the Republican Party to conduct the event at full capacity, citing supposedly necessary coronavirus social distancing restrictions.

The event was slated to be held in late August, well after the apex of the national coronavirus epidemic. Cooper still refused to allow the Republican Party to proceed with its plans to hold a full-sized major party political convention.

The loss of the Republican convention is set to cost North Carolina millions of dollars in revenue for the state’s economy. Major party conventions are regularly sought by governors and mayors, but it appears that Cooper’s desire to restrict the GOP convention overrode his desire for the benefits of the event.

The President had earlier been threatening to move the convention if North Carolina failed to give the Republican Party the green light to proceed in organizing for its convention as planned.

Sources indicate that GOP officials are already scouting out potential alternative locations for the party’s convention. Early reports suggest that either Arizona or Florida could be selected as possible replacement locations for the event, with both states set to be competitive electoral battlegrounds in the fall presidential election.

Arizona Republican Debbie Lesko called for the RNC to move the convention to her Glendale-area district, and Arizona Governor Doug Ducey has suggested that the state would be willing to welcome the President and Republicans across the country for the crucial political event.
