Here are some shorter video clips:

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin called in to Stuart Varney to provide updates on congressional funding for the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) and the Small Business Administration relief package.

The SBA/PPP program is designed for small businesses without access to the capital needed to continue payroll operations. Any big business that has access to capital could face severe penalties and/or investigation if they disregard the certification and make an SBA claim under the program.

Yesterday our President was questioned about Harvard receiving funds from the legislative CARES Act relief program:

Q: I wanted to follow up on — you said about the small business program, Harvard is going to pay the money back. How confident are you that you can claw back money from places like Harvard?

THE PRESIDENT: Well, I’m going to have to look. I don’t like when Harvard — that has, I think, a $40 billion endowment or some incredible amount of money — that Harvard gets this money. Harvard should pay that money back. I want Harvard to pay the money back. Okay? And if they won’t do that, then we won’t do something else. They have to pay it back. I don’t like it. I don’t like it.

This is meant for workers. This isn’t meant for one of the richest institutions, not only — far beyond schools — in the world. They got to pay it back. I want them to pay it back.

At first Harvard was refusing to give the money back. 24 hours later they had a come to Jesus moment:

From the link above:

[…] We have previously said that Harvard, like other institutions, will face significant financial challenges due to the pandemic and economic crisis it has caused. We are also concerned however, that the intense focus by politicians and others on Harvard in connection with this program may undermine participation in a relief effort that Congress created and the President signed into law for the purpose of helping students and institutions whose financial challenges in the coming months may be most severe.

As a result of this, and the evolving guidance being issued around use of the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund, Harvard has decided not to seek or accept the funds allocated to it by statute.

I love Charles Payne because he says it like it is.

Rightfully so Charles!

I have the utmost respect for John Solomon. He has been on top of the coup from day one. He is also someone that the White Hats trust to get information out to the public. He is not someone that says things for clicks.

John Solomon appeared on Fox Business News with Lou Dobbs yesterday to discuss his latest article about HPSCI Chairman Adam Schiff blocking release of congressional transcripts.

He also went on to say that he believes “clear evidence” exists to show that U.S. Attorney John Durham is going to indict people in/around the DOJ/FBI/CIA surveillance operation against Donald Trump and there will be more declassified material being released soon.

From the article linked above:

In late September 2018 with a mid-year election approaching, the often bitterly divided House Intelligence Committee forged a rare bipartisan moment: Its Republican and Democratic members voted to make public the transcripts of 53 witnesses in the Russia collusion investigation.

But what was hailed as an act of transparency has not been fulfilled 19 months later, even though U.S intelligence has declassified and cleared the transcripts for release.

The answer why lies in the backroom dealings of Adam Schiff, the committee’s top Democrat and its current chairman, according to interviews and memos obtained by Just the News.

Shortly after Schiff took over from Republican Rep. Devin Nunes as chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI) in 2019, he sent a letter to the office of then-Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats.

The letter obtained by Just the News specifically ordered that the witness transcripts — some of which contained exculpatory evidence for President Trump’s team — not be shared with Trump or White House lawyers even if the declassification process required such sharing.

Problem for Shitty is the fact that the POS Dan Coats is gone and Acting DNI Richard Grenell isn’t going to take his marching orders from him.

Iran is realizing that PDJT is not BHO! Having proudly served in the Navy, seeing what happened to our sailors under BHO was a travesty.

During the coronavirus task force briefing yesterday our President was asked about his tweet earlier in the day regarding Iranian gunboats harassing U.S. Navy Ships.  The President was unambiguous in his response: “We’ll shoot them out of the water”.

I love the fact that our President commented on Heshmat Alavi’s tweet:

With each passing day, more and more states are close to reopening. I love that Governor Abbott of Texas tweeted the following:

From the article linked above:

More businesses can be opened ‘in strategic ways,’ the governor says, offering a preview of plans to dial back his stay-at-home order.

Gov. Greg Abbott said on Wednesday that Texans, at least in many parts of the state, will be able early next month to visit hair salons, stores and — once they’ve been reconfigured to allow distancing — restaurants and movie theaters.

Abbott, raising expectations that his coronavirus orders will be greatly relaxed, also said that beaches will be open this summer.

From the article linked above:

Oklahoma is set to become the latest state to reopen some businesses on Friday amid the coronavirus pandemic after Gov. Kevin Stitt announced that hair salons, spas, nail salons and pet groomers can open their doors.

Stitt’s announcement, in which he said that the shops will be open by appointment only and will have to maintain social distancing and “strict sanitation protocols,” comes as a number of states have moved to reopen their economies as the country continues to battle the coronavirus pandemic that has sickened more than 839,000 people and killed almost 40,000.

[…] Stitt added that more businesses — including restaurants, movie theaters, gyms and churches — can reopen May 1 and that the state is adhering to the White House’s three-phase plan for reopening.

Governor Cuomo allows his mask to drop:

The daily press briefings will be coming to an end shortly because some reporters are questioning his ridiculous policy that has killed thousands of seniors in nursing and rehabilitation homes.

From the article linked above:

The letter was heartbreaking as it recounted the death of an 88-year-old woman in a New York nursing home. But it was also angry and accurate about a strange New York policy that is ­fatally wrongheaded.

“I am wondering who will hold Gov. Cuomo accountable for the deaths of so many older people due to his reckless decision to place covid19 patients in nursing and rehabilitation homes,” the letter began. “I am writing as a daughter who lost her beautiful 88 year old mother who was receiving physical therapy at one such facility.”

[…] Mullin had another complaint, too — that the media never asked the governor about an order mandating that nursing homes admit and readmit patients who tested positive for the coronavirus, despite the extraordinary number of deaths among the elderly.

That drought ended Monday when The Post’s Bernadette Hogan asked about the policy at ­Cuomo’s daily briefing. His answer was stunning.

“That’s a good question. I don’t know,” the governor said.

He turned to Howard Zucker, the state health commissioner, who confirmed the policy, saying “if you are positive, you should be admitted back to a nursing home. The necessary precautions will be taken to protect the other residents there.”

The second part of Zucker’s answer is debatable, the first part is not. The disastrous results speak for themselves.

The state concedes that 3,448 residents of nursing homes or adult-care facilities are known to have died from the coronavirus, or nearly 25 percent of all deaths in New York. More than 2,000 of the total are in the five boroughs, and officials acknowledge that the real numbers are almost certainly higher.

Democrats, MSM, Leftists, Never Trumpers etc. got what they wanted. What they are about to get will be far worse for them. Enjoy it will it lasts.

Cocaine Mitch promised us that no vacancy will be left behind. He plans on fulfilling that promise!

From the article linked above:

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said on Tuesday that Republicans will keep trying to confirm President Trump’s judicial nominees once the chamber returns to Washington, despite the coronavirus pandemic.

McConnell, asked during an interview with radio host Hugh Hewitt when they would return to confirming Trump’s picks, noted that the Senate is currently scheduled to return on May 4.

“As soon as we get back in session, we’ll start confirming judges again. We need to have hearings, and we need to confirm judges. … The pandemic will not prevent us from achieving that goal,” McConnell said.

[…] “Hugh, you and I have discussed this before. My motto for the year is leave no vacancy behind. That hasn’t changed,” McConnell added on Tuesday.

Lets take a look at what is left is assembling the Trump Judicial Armada.

  • U.S. Court of Appeals – 1 vacancy 
  • U.S. District Courts – 72 vacancies / 36 nominees pending
