Illinois governor fires back after Trump says states were unprepared: ‘He doesn’t understand the word federal’

Westlake Legal Group zxiJejiO7ozTg31BNPEn4TwW9LLShmVZydKc3to1V2A Illinois governor fires back after Trump says states were unprepared: 'He doesn't understand the word federal' r/politics

Here’s the grift:

1.) Eliminate oversight of the spending of nearly a trillion dollars of tax dollars: https://thehill.com/regulation/court-battles/490737-stimulus-opens-new-front-in-trumps-oversight-fight

2.) Aquire the authority to command which businesses get which contracts: https://youtu.be/MlQx7Qs2ACI

3.) Have trusted people stand up companies through which the money can be funneled (3 week old company, founded through a loan approved via the Coronavirus Stimulus bill, is now the center of medical supply distribution): https://www.politico.com/news/2020/03/27/republican-fundraiser-company-coronavirus-152184 “I don’t want to overstate, but we probably represent the largest global supply chain for Covid-19 supplies right now,” he said. “We are getting ready to fill 100 million-unit mask orders.”

4.) Have the federal government divert supplies from Project Airbridge to the new companies, run by your buddies: https://twitter.com/DavidBegnaud/status/1245841458323771393

5.) Have the states bid on the supplies, driving up the price: https://youtu.be/2zeEUs7tcpE

6.) Have the federal government spend taxpayer dollars to ship supplies purchased from China to these brand new private companies: https://www.npr.org/sections/coronavirus-live-updates/2020/03/29/823543513/project-airbridge-to-expedite-arrival-of-needed-supplies-white-house-says?utm_campaign=npr&utm_source=twitter.com&utm_medium=social&utm_term=nprnews

7.) Eliminate the competition. Attack any company that doesn’t play ball. https://mothership.sg/2020/04/trump-3m-10-million-masks/

I copied most of this but edited #4 from the original postas it got the contents wrong.

The Airbridge supplies (that were already paid for) are mostly being ‘injected into the market’ instead of going directly to states. The feds are then bidding on the supplies they just put on the market.

The 6-7 companies that are distributing the Airbridge supplies are making a fortune right now.

Democrats want to provide mail-in ballots amid COVID-19. Republicans don’t.

Westlake Legal Group x-_D-n4D4MMRn9PjM5pQAzPX7uF0C6WwV4VIkji4kE8 Democrats want to provide mail-in ballots amid COVID-19. Republicans don’t. r/politics

I’ve been voting by mail for years, and I gotta tell you, I can see why the republicans want to stop it.

You know how with regular polling you have to show up to a location, wait in line forever, and then hopefully get to vote if the state didn’t purge your ass? So, as a result, it’s hard to get motivated to go out and vote, especially because jobs don’t provide time off to do so?

Yeah, with a mail in ballot, none of that shit is a problem. You get your ballot weeks early, you have most of that time to turn it in, and as a result you can vote much more easily at your leisure and then throw the ballot envelope in the mailbox, go back home, and then kick back.

Every fucking young person in the ENTIRE country would be voting if they were all signed up to vote by mail. No waiting, no hassle, just fill out the ballot, turn it in before polling day, and you’re good. Young people would be voting like NEVER before, and so would every woman, racial minority, or sexual minority.

They would never win an election again. Never. Their ideas suck, their ideology is regressive, their candidates range from corporate shill to outright racist, and they nominated and elected donald trump president, which is the political equivalent of shooting yourself in the face with a rocket launcher and not being the protagonist of a 90’s first person shooter game while doing so. Their brand is broken and their ideas are unpopular, so the only way they win is to straight up try to demotivate people from voting at all.
