Today during an interview on the Fox Business channel, Secretary of the Treasury Steve Mnuchin released the Trump Administration’s plan to directly put cash into the hands of American families who are being harmed by the current Chinese Virus pandemic.
“This is an unprecedented situation, where for good reason the government has instructed major parts of the economy to close down so that we can win this fight against this virus,” remarked Secretary Mnuchin.
“We understand that there are impacts on hardworking Americans and the President is determined that we are going to support that. So we have announced a trillion dollar plan. The part of this is three hundred billion dollars that goes to small businesses. That money needs to go to hiring people, keeping people on the payroll, and if they do there will be loan forgiveness on that afterwards…The second component is, well I referred to it as ‘checks in the mail’ but it really is ‘money directly deposited’, the plan is five hundred billion dollars….a thousand dollars per person and five hundred dollars per child. So for a family of four that is a three thousand dollar payment and as soon as Congress passes this we can get it out in three weeks and six weeks later if the President still has a national emergency we will deliver another three thousand dollars.”
The President’s administration has made clear that direct payments would go to U.S. citizens only, and would be “tiered based on income level and family size.”
President Trump’s efforts to put cash directly into the hands of Americans who are being affected by the Chinese Virus outbreak has landed him some non-traditional allies; Andrew Yang who made Universal Basic Income the cornerstone of his presidential campaign said “I am thrilled that they are doing the right thing”, and Democratic Congresswoman from Hawaii Tulsi Gabbard said it is ‘good news’ that President Trump is speaking out in support of direct cash payment to every American.
The broadly supported bipartisan plan that is being led by President Trump for direct cash relief is finding some opposition, most recently from Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer.
The American Right Should Beware of Campaign Consultant Grifters
Some people want to make a quick buck with zero results to show for it.
Heading into 2022 and 2024, America First operatives should be careful dealing with campaigns run by grifters.
Patrick Clerbune of VDARE put out an informative post that serves as a warning to all about the rampant corruption within Republican political consultant outfits.
He highlighted a Washington Post piece detailing how donors gave more than $8 million to Kim Klacik, a black woman running as a Republican candidate in Maryland’s 7th district. In reality, the money donated to Klacik’s campaign went straight to the fat pockets of political consultants who knew full well that she couldn’t win.
The Post went into further detail about this naked grifting opportunity:
Her campaign is an example of how some consulting firms are profiting handsomely from Republican candidates who have robust appeal in today’s politically charged environment…
By the end of Klacik’s campaign, she would raise a staggering $8.3 million and pay nearly $3.7 million of it to Olympic Media, according to campaign finance filings.
For political veterans, this is nothing new under the sun. Political consultant parasites such as Karl Rove are notorious for enriching themselves by running failed campaigns and diverting resources from actual winnable races. Rove was also involved in the Georgia Senate dumpster fire, where the GOP dropped a whopping $1 billion and still ended up losing both seats.
Pointing out how the managerial state is detrimental to all Americans, especially minorities, is one thing. But using failed ethnic pandering and running campaigns in districts that can never be won by Republicans is another.
In the aforementioned case, Maryland’s 7th district has never gone Republican in its history and was the long-time home of Elijah Cummings from 1996 until his death in 2019. Democrat challenger Kweisi Mfume completely obliterated Klacik 74 to 25 in the 2020 general election.
Intelligent nationalists would be wise to recognize that certain races are lost causes, which drain resources that could otherwise be allocated towards winnable campaigns. A large degree of skepticism should always be directed towards the political consultant class. Their money-making model does not always translate into electoral success.
