Kid Rock took to Twitter on Wednesday to verify that a new website, KidRockForSenate.com, is legitimate. The website reads, “are you scared?” along with a photo of the rocker next to a stuffed deer. The site also links to a web store to buy campaign merchandise.

The Macomb County musician, whose real name is Robert Ritchie, added that a big announcement was soon to come.

“Stay tuned, I will have a major announcement in the near future,” Kid Rock tweeted.

The Michigan Republican Party has previously hinted that they were seeking to draft Kid Rock to challenge Senator Debbie Stabenow in 2018, the Detroit Free Press reports.

Kid Rock had originally endorsed Ben Carson in the Republican primaries, but quickly shifted to support the Trump campaign.

“My feeling: Let the motherf*cking business guy run it like a f*cking business,” Kid Rock told Rolling Stone during an interview in February, 2016. “I’m digging Trump. I feel like a lot of people, whether you’re a Democrat or a Republican, feel like if you get Hillary or Bernie, or you get Rubio or Cruz or whoever, there’s going to be the same sh*t.”

The ‘Bawitdaba’ singer visited the White House in April along with Sarah Palin and Ted Nugent. The group made waves when they mockingly posed in front of a portrait of Hillary Clinton.

In December, Kid Rock began selling red hats in his merch store that said, “Make America Badass Again” — a play on Trump’s iconic “Make America Great Again” hats. He also sold shirts that read “GOD GUNS & TRUMP,” and one which showed the electoral map and labeled the red areas as “America” and the blue as “Dumbfuckistan.”

Another shirt in his highly political merch store reads “_onald Trump,” then adds,  “The ‘D’ is missing because it’s in every hater’s mouth.”

Arizona’s McSally Introduces Resolution to End Senate Salaries Until Stimulus Passes

If the people won’t get paid, neither will their legislators.

Published

on

Arizona Senator Martha McSally has introduced a Senate resolution that would withhold pay from all U.S. Senators until the chamber passes the eagerly-awaited Coronavirus stimulus, termed as ‘TrumpBux’ by some for the one-time payments of $1,200 to almost all American adults.

McSally announced the resolution, titled the ‘No COVID-19 Relief, No Pay Act‘ on Tuesday.

Americans have been largely cut off from everyday economic life by the governmental response to an act of God. It’s all too obvious that federal compensation is required.

If Americans aren’t getting paid, then neither should the Senators failing to support the workers and families who need help making ends meet,” said the freshman Arizona Senator.

Today, I introduced legislation to have Senators’ pay withheld until relief is passed. It is despicable that millions of Americans are without a paycheck in this time of crisis, while the Senate wastes precious time playing political games. The Senate must pass this relief package now in order to get cash straight to the people.”

Fortunately for Senators that would prefer a path of continued political grandstanding, the planned stimulus may be sent to the President’s desk on Wednesday after negotiations between Chuck Schumer and Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin.

The final estimate of the stimulus cost has been gauged at $2 trillion dollars, a sizable package that will be distributed in a combination of TrumpBux and loans to small and big businesses.

There are some similarities between the TrumpBux proposal and universal basic income. The former isn’t ‘universal-‘ individuals who reported more than $75,000 in income on their 2018 tax return will get less money and those who reported more than $100,000’ won’t get anything.

McSally’s proposal ultimately could prove to be the final metaphorical poker stick to the feet of obstructionist Democrats seeking to delay the stimulus package with feckless political gamesmanship.
