Published

Unelected appointee Sen. Kelly Loeffler of Georgia is under fire for selling off stock shortly after a Senators-only meeting about the coronavirus in February.

Big League Politics reported on Loeffler’s suspicious sell-off on Thursday:

Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-GA), who was appointed to her post undemocratically against the wishes of President Donald Trump, has been revealed for selling stock shortly after a private briefing on the coronavirus.

“Appreciate today’s briefing from the President’s top health officials on the novel coronavirus outbreak. These men and women are working around the clock to keep our country safe and healthy,” Loeffler wrote in a tweet about the briefing at the time.

Loeffler dumped stocks worth between $50,001 and $100,000 in Resideo Technologies following the hearing. The stock for Resideo has dropped by half since that point, as the Dow Jones has tanked by losing roughly 10,000 points.

She also made a buy of between $100,000 and $250,000 in Citrix, a tech firm specializing in teleworking that has bucked the market during its downturn due to the increased demand for remote networking because of coronavirus.

Fox News attempted to cover for Loeffler, who is the favorite candidate of the Republican Party establishment, by painting her as a diligent public servant fighting to help the ordinary people as they are devastated by the coronavirus pandemic.

She appeared on “America’s Newsroom” on Friday where she made excuses for her disreputable behavior.

“So, if you actually look at the personal transaction reports that were filed, it notices at the bottom that I’m only informed of my transactions after they occur — several weeks. So, certainly, those transactions — at least on my behalf — were a mix of buys and sells. Very routine for my portfolio,” Loeffler told Fox News host Ed Henry.

“Who are these third-party advisers? They seem to have a good idea about where the market was headed,” Henry retorted.

“Well certainly I am not involved in the decisions around buying and selling,” she said, alleging that she understands zilch about her own finances.

“I come out of the financial services industry where I have over 20 years of experience of dealing and complying with very strict standards around material non-public information. I’m the only chartered financial analyst in the Senate,” Loeffler added, rattling off credentials that make it seem very dubious that she knew nothing of her own stock being sold.

Henry asked if it was a “conflict” of sorts because Loeffler’s husband is the CEO of the company that owns the New York Stock Exchange. Loeffler defended her insider connections and gave lip service to the public.

“I’m up here in Washington working for hard-working Georgian families and families across our country so that the American dream can stay intact. I’ve spent the last ten days, 24/7, around the clock, working to hear the stories of our hard-working Georgians – waitresses, hospital administrators, state and county public health officials – to figure out what is needed,” she said as Henry cheered her on.

While Henry gave Loeffler an easy interview, he did hit her with one question at the end that exposed the RINO lawmaker.

“If the Securities Exchange Commission or other entities like the Senate Ethics Committee want to look at this, are you going to cooperate fully?” he asked Loeffler.

“Absolutely,” Loeffler responded with her body language giving her away, as she nodded her head as if to say “no.”

The entire interview can be seen here:

Loeffler will be on the ballot against Rep. Doug Collins, who was President Trump’s endorsement for the position, in November.

Louie Gohmert Blames Mask Usage for COVID-19 Diagnosis, Plans to Take Hydroxychloroquine to Treat Virus

The mask may have caused him to catch the Chinavirus.

Published

on

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) has reportedly tested positive for COVID-19, which the fake news media has attributed to his lack of using a face mask.

However, Gohmert says he tested positive for the disease after complying with mask mandates more than ever. He feels the mask usage did not protect him from getting the virus and may have even contributed to it.

He told reporters that it is “ironic” that he would catch COVID-19 now “because a lot of people have made a big deal out of my not wearing a mask a whole lot, but in the last week or two I have worn a mask more than I have in the whole last four months.”

“I can’t help but wonder if by keeping a mask on and keeping it in place, if I might have put some germs, some of the virus on the mask and breathed it in,” Gohmert said.

Democrats are chiding Gohmert because he has talked against lockdown policies, mask mandates, and more overreach implemented because of COVID-19 mass hysteria.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said that she is “sorry for my members, who are concerned because he has been showing up at meetings without a mask and making a thing of it.”

Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) added that he is “concerned about the irresponsible behavior of many of the Republicans who have chosen to consistently flout well-established public health guidance perhaps out of fealty to their boss, Donald Trump, who is the head of the anti-mask movement in America.”

Big League Politics has reported on how the mass hysteria has caused Americans to turn on their heritage of freedom and liberty to support forcible unconstitutional mandates:

A new poll from Morning Consult/Politico reveals that a solid majority of Americans support a mask mandate that would implement fines of jail time for those that refuse to wear masks in public places.

The asks registered voters if they’d support a mandated implemented by their state government. 72% of of responding registered voters stated that they’d “strongly” or “somewhat” support a state-implemented mask mandate that is punishable by jail time or fines.

The poll asked the following question.

Based on what you know about the COVID-19 pandemic (coronavirus), would you support or oppose your state instituting a face mask mandate in public spaces, where not wearing a mask could be punishable by fine or jail time?

Curiously, Baby Boomers, one of America’s most conservative voting demographics, support a mask mandate most strenuously. 78% of Boomers support the mask mandate. Millennials (68%) and Generation Z (63%) support it the least, although wide majorities still do.

Democrats support the mask mandate in almost unanimous fashion, with 86% of them supporting it. A solid majority of Republicans support mandatory masks as well, with a majority of 58%.

There simply is widespread public support for wearing a mask and taking limited measures to deter the spread of coronavirus in the United States. Republicans and conservatives risk alienating such popular sentiment at their own electoral peril.

Gohmert plans to take hydroxychloroquine in order to treat COVID-19 and fend off potential symptoms.

“My doctor and I are all in, and I got a text just before I came on from a dear friend, [a] doctor, who just found out he had it, and he said he started a HCQ [hydroxychloroquine] regimen, too,” Gohmert said while appearing on Fox News.

“I got a tiny little taste of what you and the president get every day,” Gohmert said to host Sean Hannity, “The left went nuts.”

Gohmert hopes to be among the 99.7 percent of coronavirus sufferers who recover from the disease.
