A young Democrat in Minnesota joins a growing chorus of liberals who are frustrated and angry at President Joe Biden’s string of broken promises since being installed in the White House 46 days ago.
Ben Calvert, 27, said he and his friends are quickly losing confidence in the Biden administration and the Democratic Party for reneging on their pre-election promises to give $2,000 stimulus checks to struggling Americans.
“A lot of my friends are really frustrated because they were like, ‘We’ve got to elect these two senators in Georgia! We’ve got to get Joe Biden in office and then everything’s going to be better!’” Calvert told CNN last week. “It’s not a $1,400 check, it’s $2,000 checks.’”
He was referring to the fact that the Democrats’ pork-filled $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief package includes stimulus checks of $1,400 per person, with income limits. That was in addition to the $600 checks that Congress approved in December.
They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
