Michigan County Board approve resolution in support to impeaching Whitmer

Governor Whitmer is a thorn in the side of every conservative and every decent law-abiding American Patriot. Some say she’s far worse. Her Draconian laws and mandates are causing more death, a spiraling out of control economy and a very unsettled citizenry.

Governor Whitmer has no regard for the citizens of Michigan she has an agenda and it does not resemble or represent America.

Dow jumps 433 points to break 30,000 for first time ever

Dow closes above 30,000 for the first time in history By Noah Manskar and Thornton McEnery November 24, 2020 | 12:01pm | Updated Dow Crosses 30,000: Biggest Market Drivers Tuesday The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed above the 30,000 mark for the first time ever Tuesday as Wall Street cheered good news on coronavirus vaccines and a key step toward a peaceful transfer of power in Washington. The blue-chip index surged 454.97 points, or 1.5 percent, to close at 30,046.24. Earlier in the session, the index hit 30,116.51, an all-time intraday high. Investors were jubilant after President Trump directed his administration to start the formal process of handing control of the White House to President-elect Joe Biden, even as prospects continued to brighten that multiple and effective ­COVID-19 vaccines will be widely distributed next year. More broadly, Wall Street analysts say investors are piling into stocks on signs that the coronavirus-battered economy is recovering amid record-low interest rates from the Federal Reserve and fiscal stimulus from the Treasury that have encouraged riskier investments.

Savings are maybe at their highest level. And now people are being forced to spend money.” The benchmark S&P 500 and the tech-heavy Nasdaq rose 1.6 percent and 1.3 percent, respectively, as concerns ebbed about Trump refusing to cooperate with the presidential transition. On Tuesday, Trump convened a surprise news conference at the White House that lasted about a minute in which he appeared to take credit for the Dow’s milestone. “The stock market’s just broken 30 thousand. Never been broken, that number,” Trump told reporters. “That’s a sacred number, 30 thousand. No one thought they’d ever see it.” It has been a roller-coaster year for the Dow. After flirting with the 30,000 mark in February, the index got clobbered as the coronavirus arrived in the United States a month later, briefly plunging below the 19,000 mark. It has since clawed back those losses, with most analysts citing aggressive measures by the federal government to prop up the economy. Tuesday’s gains put the Dow up about 1,404.10 points, or 5.6 percent, for the year. Streible gives credit to the market for weathering a contentious election cycle and anticipating an incoming Biden administration that is now taking shape. “When Georgia called it, people were like, ‘It’s over,’ ” Streible said. “Bringing in Janet Yellen [Biden’s pick for Treasury secretary] is bringing in someone we know, someone we trust.” US stocks have been on a tear since Election Day, lifted by the likelihood of a Republican Senate blocking big policy changes under Biden — including and especially big tax increases. Drugmakers’ major strides toward producing a coronavirus vaccine provided another boost. “Trump’s attempts to overturn the election result was not the disruptive influence it could have been in the markets,” said Craig Erlam, senior market analyst at OANDA. “The reaction we’re seeing is probably more relief at the process delivering in the way we all expect it should.” Still, crossing the 30,000 mark is just a “symbolic moment” for the market, according to James McDonald, CEO of Los Angeles-based Hercules Investments. “It is simply a continuation of the market’s euphoria after the pre-election selloff,” he said. “At the end of the day, Dow 30,000 is just a number and the milestone doesn’t hold any credence in determining the near-term stock-market outlook.” Indeed, it’s record government spending, and “full-blown market mania” that’s driving the Dow in recent weeks, versus economic fundamentals, said Zach Abraham, chief investment officer at Bulwark Capital Management. Still, he expects the Dow will continue to outperform other indices as many of its blue-chip components are trading at relatively low valuations, especially anything related to energy. “It’s always historic when the Dow crosses these milestones,” Abraham said. “Pretty incredible in a year like 2020 that all of these indexes are pushing substantially higher. “Investors should enjoy the gains, take it in, but make sure they’re rebalancing and taking profits.” Filed under dow jones industrial average , stock market , wall street , 11/24/20 Source: https://nypost.com/2020/11/24/dow-jumps-433-points-to-break-30000-for-first-time-ever/?utm_source=maropost&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=news_alert&utm_content=20201124&mpweb=755-9182014-720701364.

CCP Media Outlet Continues Paying US Counterparts Millions to Publish Its Propaganda

Chinese State-run Outlet Continues Paying US Newspapers Millions to Publish Its Propaganda

China Daily, the Chinese regime’s propaganda outlet, has spent millions for the past six months on U.S. publications, according to its statement (pdf) filed last week with the Department of Justice under the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA).

According to the statement, China Daily’s overall expenses from May 1 to Oct. 31 this year were above $4.4 million, in which around $3.1 million was spent on printing, advertising, and distribution, and about $1.3 million for payrolls and other operating expenses.

The Wall Street Journal, Los Angeles Times, Foreign Policy, the Seattle Times are some of the notable receivers.

Over the past few years, China Daily has spent millions running supplements—called “China Watch”—containing propaganda disguised as news in major U.S. media outlets. These supplements are inserted as advertisements in newspapers or paid programs online.

However, scholars researching Chinese influence activities in the United States said in a 2018 report (pdf) that “it’s hard to tell that China Watch’s material is an ad.”

On Feb. 18, China Daily and four other media outlets from China were designated as Foreign Missions by the Department of State. On June 22, the Department of State designated another four news outlets from China as Foreign Missions.

“[General Secretary Xi Jinping] said ‘Party-owned media must. . . embody the party’s will, safeguard the party’s authority … their actions must be highly consistent with the party,’ in short, while Western media are beholden to the truth, PRC media are beholden to the Chinese Communist Party,” Department Spokesperson Morgan Ortagus said in her statement in June.
China Daily’s previous financial filings (pdf) with the Justice Department showed that it paid more than $4.6 million to The Washington Post and nearly $6 million to the Wall Street Journal since November 2016. It also showed the outlet paid The New York Times $50,000 in 2018.

The Washington Post and The New York Times stopped running the advertising insert early this year.
The Wall Street Journal, Foreign Policy, and the LA Times didn’t immediately respond to requests for comments from The Epoch Times.

According to China Daily’s recent filing, for the past six months, its total subscription and advertisement income was only $123,700.56. However, the “Fund from Headquarter Office” was $4,416,133.35, accounting for about 97.3 percent of total income.
China Daily is headquartered in Beijing, China. It is owned by the Publicity Department, an internal division of the CCP (China Communist Party).


Trump’s Election Lawsuit Leads to 3rd Circuit Grant for Expedited Review

2020 Presidential Election

Campaign has just hours to file a brief in the case following the court’s decision
By Ronn Blitzer | Fox News

The Third Circuit Court of Appeals granted the Trump campaign’s request for an expedited review of a lower court’s decision to dismiss a lawsuit over voting in Pennsylvania.

Trump campaign attorney Jenna Ellis tweeted the news with an image of the court record Monday morning.


The appeal comes after U.S. District Court Judge Matthew Brann in Pennsylvania threw out the campaign’s lawsuit, which sought an injunction that would stop the certification of the election in Pennsylvania. Most counties in the state are expected to certify their results on Monday.

The Trump campaign argued that the Constitution’s guarantee of equal protection under the law was violated by the state when counties took different measures to inform voters of technical issues that arose with the unprecedented number of mail-in ballots.

Pennsylvania Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar, along with seven counties that were sued by the Trump campaign and where Joe Biden led, argued Trump had already raised similar claims.


Brann issued a blistering ruling in which he dismissed the case with prejudice, not allowing the Trump campaign to file an amended complaint.

“Plaintiffs ask this Court to disenfranchise almost seven million voters,” Brann said. “This Court has been unable to find any case in which a plaintiff has sought such a drastic remedy in the contest of an election, in terms of the sheer volume of votes asked to be invalidated.”

The campaign raised a narrow appeal of Brann’s denial of its motion to amend the complaint “solely on the basis of undue delay.” The campaign asked the Third Circuit to send the matter back down to the lower court “to promptly decide it on the merits and proceed expeditiously to a hearing to enjoin certifying the results of the Presidential Election.”


The Third Circuit’s order says the Trump campaign has until 4 p.m. local time Monday to file a brief supporting its argument for overturning Brann’s decision. Boockvar has until the same time Tuesday to file theirs.

It remains to be seen whether the Third Circuit will call for oral arguments before issuing a ruling.
