The coronavirus conspiracy theories are running rampant all over the internet. I must admit I have my own theories about the so-called pandemic. Conspiracy theories aside, one thing I do know for sure is that the virus is being used to strike fear in the minds of people all over the world. I would never say that the virus is not real, but the twenty-four-hour coverage is ridiculous.
ABC News just posted an article addressing many conspiracy theorists that believe the virus was created in a lab.
Conspiracy theories claiming COVID-19 was engineered in a lab as part of a biological attack on the United States have been gaining traction online in recent weeks, but a new study on the origins of the virus has concluded that the pandemic-causing strain developed naturally. - ABC News

"There’s a lot of speculation and conspiracy theories that went to a pretty high level," Dr. Robert Garry, a professor at the Tulane University School of Medicine and one of the authors of the study, told ABC News, "so we felt it was important to get a team together to examine evidence of this new coronavirus to determine what we could about the origin."
I find it all well and good that mainstream media is able to debunk the theory of the virus’ origins, however, I do believe the powers that be are using this outbreak as a means to carry out their hidden agendas. All of the shutdowns across America are nothing more than drills for martial law. It almost feels as if this is one big test to see how people will react to these shutdowns and curfews. When you take into consideration the fact that some people have lost their jobs and may not ever get them back even after this coronavirus pandemic is somewhat resolved, it seems as if the powers that be are saying what Raum Emmanuel once said, “Never let a crisis go to waste”.
The laboratory theory will never be proven to be true or false, there will always be some new information and someone will later counter or debunk that information. Somebody has to gain from this pandemic and time will show who profited. All we will have to do is connect the dots.
The state of New Jersey is one of the first in the country to implement a statewide curfew. The governor has issued an 8pm curfew to keep people from gathering together in neighborhoods where people tend to congregate quite often. But the residents in Newark completely ignoring the governor's request and decided they would not only break curfew but they would also break the orders to not congregate with more than ten people.
The whole neighborhood was outside past 8pm and basically telling the police to go F... themselves!
This may be the beginning of people being detained and jailed. Martial law is almost a certainty.
WATCH THE VIDEO
Mayor of Newark, New Jersey, Ras Baraka:
“We need them to listen to the governor’s directive," Baraka said during a press conference at the city’s Office of Emergency Management headquarters. “But more importantly, if you live in those areas - and we’ll get that message out to you - we need you to take that one step further."
An Arizona man steals 29 coronavirus test kits. He appears to be a Hispanic man in his 30′s with a little gray in his beard. According to CNN the man entered the El Rio Health Center disguised as a delivery driver.
Police said the test kits are "essentially useless" to the suspect because they can only be tested in a "private lab equipped with the proper tools for testing and reading results."
You would have to wonder if this man feels as if his family and friends may have been infected and they may be undocumented citizens. If so then I can understand his frustration. I have a feeling this will not be the last person to steal desperate enough to steal test kits.
Donald Trump’s plan to stop poor people from receiving government assistance has been halted by a federal judge in Washington.
Bloomberg reports: In an 84-page ruling, Chief U.S. District Judge Beryl Howell issued a nationwide injunction that blocks two of the three changes the White House had made to the nation’s Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or SNAP.
“As a global pandemic poses widespread health risks, guaranteeing that government officials at both the federal and state levels have flexibility to address the nutritional needs of residents and ensure their well-being through programs like SNAP, is essential,” Howell said,
At a time like this, when the whole country is in a state of panic, it is almost unthinkable that the President of the United States is actually trying to cut government assistance from the people that need it the most.
Trump has made it clear that he does not care about poor people. Ironically, a lot of Trump supporters are poor people that need government assistance, yet for some reason, these same people support his policies that devastate them in the immediate future. You cannot buy this kind of stupid.
Dr. Shiva Ayyadurai has made a bold claim that the coronavirus is just a fraud that was created to manipulate economies. Many right-wing conspiracy theorists agree with Dr.Ayyadurai and publicly thank him for speaking out.
As an MIT PhD in Biological Engineering who studies & does research nearly every day on the Immune System, the #coronavirus fear mongering by the Deep State will go down in history as one of the biggest fraud to manipulate economies, suppress dissent, & push MANDATED Medicine! https://t.co/Q5VeOqzWEp

While I do believe the coronavirus itself is real, I do feel the media is doing a good job of scaring the shit out of everyone.
I honestly don't know what's worse, the coronavirus or the media coverage of it.
Public outrage over the coronavirus has turned into a nightmare. Every day people are walking around thinking they are safe by wearing masks and gloves. Every time someone sneezes people look on in fear of a virus that they do not even understand. Not to mention, CNN's around the clock coverage of the pandemic has become ridiculous.
The other day I spoke to a young man that was so paranoid over the virus, he told someone with a heart condition and a breathing problem (that he has had for years) that it was a symptom of the coronavirus. I had to calm him the man down and explain to him that a person with a heart condition does not equal coronavirus!
In 2018, Trump fired the pandemic response team, and yes, it was a stupid thing to do. However, even with a full response team staff, there still would be no vaccine. There is simply no way to actually contain a moving virus.
Even though I am not a Trump supporter, I can't blame him for this. Democrats have made it a point of blasting Trump over something he could not control even if he wanted to.
All in all, I'm pretty much fifty-fifty on this subject. Yes, I do feel there is a need to warn the public and take all precautionary measures but on the other hand, I hate the way this pandemic has been politicized. It feels as if Democrats love seeing this pandemic cause public hysteria while they sneakily giggle about how this will cause Trump to lose the election.
Rapper Meek Mill recently posted on social media his displeasure with law enforcement constantly targeting him. His private jet has been searched for the second time in just weeks. One would assume that they are looking for drugs or maybe an illegal firearm but lies beneath all of the harassment is a real conspiracy.
Meek Mill was released from prison last year after being arrested for popping a willy on an ATV in Philadelphia. The judge was a corrupt P.O.S that was angry at Meek Mill for not promoting a family member that was trying to make it in the music industry. When Meek Mill was released he welcomed home by the community, while the judge and the prosecutor were embarrassed.
Robert Kraft celebrated Meek Mill’s released from prison and joined Meek in his quest to bring awareness to prison reform. Robert Kraft later find himself being arrested for being soliciting a prostitute in a massage polar.
Since Meek Mill’s release, he has been very successful in his business endeavors, most notably signing to Jay-Z’s Roc Nation.
I believe the police departments all over the United States have a vendetta against Meek. They want him to make a mistake so badly that they are just looking for any little thing, hoping, they can put him back in prison.
Roosevelt Twyne, a 25-year-old African-American security guard, was arrested by Roselle Park Police.
Evan Nappen, Twyne's attorney, says his client was charged for illegally carrying a firearm and being in possession of so-called hollow point ammunition.
"He was arrested for the hollow point ammunition," Nappen told the Free Beacon. "Then they claimed he was transporting his handgun illegally. He had a permit to carry a handgun. The law … makes it clear that it's illegal to transport unless you are licensed pursuant to chapter 58. And that is precisely what a handgun carry permit is."
Nappen stated that the ammunition his client was carrying was not hollow points, instead, they were "critical duty" which is the same ammunition that his employer issues.
Twyne has stated that he has been unable to work for a month.
According to the Freebeacon, a crowdfunding effort to pay for Twyne's defense has raised nearly $5,500 from 189 donors as of Friday.
This incident does not surprise me what-so-ever. The officers that made this arrest did not care whether or not Twyne had the right to carry his firearms. They were trying to send a message. A black man with a gun is not tolerated in New Jersey. The fact that he was a security officer with a gun permit makes his arrest even egregious. It should be a lesson to black people everywhere, even if you are in compliance with the law, certain laws are not for you.
To be honest, I’m surprised Twyne wasn’t shot. Police know they can easily shoot a black man these days. With Twyne having a gun they could have shot him and said they felt like their live were in danger.
Newsone claims people want Stacey Abrams or Kamala Harris to be Biden's running mate and totally disagree. I have no idea why the writers at Newsone would make such a claim. Other than the fact that Harris and Abrams are black there is no reason to pick either one of these women.
Kamala Harris has no black support what so ever and Abrams is hardly known. Harris has a terrible record from her time as a prosecutor in California which caused black people to disregard her as a viable presidential candidate. Biden would likely lose the black support that has if he picks Harris as his running mate.
Newsone is claiming that people online have craving for one these women to be Biden’s VP pick but I have yet to see anything to validate that claim. I understand that Newsone is a pro-black news publishing, however, it would be dishonest of them to make such a claim without validation.
Personally, I think Corey Booker would make a better running mate for Biden.
- NEWSONE'S FULL ARTICLE BELOW-
The “Independent Sentinal” is making the claim that Bernie Bros are calling Black people in the South uneducated and unqualified to vote.
One the so-called Bernie Bros said this: “It’s not racist” to say black voters are “low information.” Another called black voters “low IQ monkeys.”
I personally think this is more likely to be some rightwing trolls posing as liberals that are trying to divide the Democratic party. In other words, this is fake news!
It seems as if this is just another attempt by conservatives to make all liberals look racist. Of course, now that Bernie is clear front runner and inches closer to becoming the democratic nominee, conservatives have shifted their focus to Sanders and have begun to try to discredit him in every way possible.
There have been a recent barrage of incidents of rightwing trolls posing as progressives, flagging Youtube and Twitch accounts. David Pakman has exposed a fake legal representative of CBS News that flagged his Twitch account during the democratic presidential debate in South Carolina.
New England Patriots wide receiver, Antonio Brown has been the topic of discussion for many weeks now, mostly for his on the field antics and his controversial departure from the Pittsburgh Steelers which sent him to the Oakland Raiders. Without even playing a down for the Raiders, Brown was released and picked up by the Patriots. Before even playing a down for the Patriots, a new story drops that has taken the sports media by storm.
Antonio Brown's former trainer "Britney Taylor" has accused her of raping her 3 times. She claims it happened back in 2017. Okay, this is where the story gets a little weird, Brittney Taylor claims Brown raped her but yet she continued to be his personal trainer. Not only that but she waited for 2 years to even report that she was raped.
You can read the full complaint by clicking the link below.
This is one of the weirdest stories I've heard in my life. One of the complaints Taylor made against Brown was he allegedly kissed her and then stood behind her and masturbated on her.
To be clear, I'm not siding with Antonio Brown, I'm confused about the timing of the reveal. It seems so odd that Ms. Taylor would be revealing this now after so much time has elapsed. It may be true that Ms. Taylor was too ashamed to publicly make these claims and maybe she has found the courage to talk about the alleged assault.
Here is the kicker, from what I understand so far, Ms. Taylor is only seeking financial compensation for the alleged assaults. There is no indication that Taylor wants Brown to face any jail time.
Things that make you go hmmm?
I have not agreed with much of anything Trump has done so far as President but this one thing he got right, on Tuesday, September 10, 2019, President Trump fired the warhawk himself, John Bolton.
Bolton was appointed National Security Adviser back in 2017 but like most of Trumps hires he was fired after just 2 years. Actually, nobody knows if Bolton was fired or if just resigned. Either way, it needed to happen.
There is speculation that Bolton leaked information about internal affairs. The Trump administration has a no snitching policy and has had one from the beginning. Trump has always been weary of insiders spilling the goods on him.
Senator Lindsey Graham chimed in on the release of John Bolton:
“I like John Bolton. I thought he did a good job, I shared his worldview, however, I think the trust was lost—there’s a view that the leaking allegation is pretty sensitive to the president.”
It was a few months ago when every week there was a new story about Iran. There seemed that an eventual war with Iran was evident. Bolton has been beating the war drum for years openly calling for war with Iran as if it was just something to do. When Trump hired Bolton as National Security Adviser back in 2017, it worried a lot of people who feared it would turn into Iraqi freedom part 2.
Rumor has it, Trump and Bolton were not seeing eye to eye when it came to Iran. Trump openly stated he did not want to start a war with Iran and I'm sure Bolton had to have been greatly disappointed.
Of course, we know Bolton was only looking to profit from another war much like Bush and Chaney did 2002.
According to the Daily Beast, John Bolton was not happy about Trump inviting leaders of the Taliban to Camp David for a formal meeting. The invitation to the Taliban may just have been the final straw.
Finally, my last entry may be a big problem for Trump. According to multiple sources, John Bolton is preparing to write a book about his time as a NSA and it may be released in the final weeks of the 2020 election.
Jim Carey is on the hitlist for right-wing websites. Carey put a target on his back when he sent a tweet scolding Mitch McConnell.
“10,000 gun deaths in 2019 and the year is far from over. What Osama bin Laden did to us was terrible but he doesn’t hold a candle to Mitch McConnell.” - Jim Carey
With so many people in Kentucky mad at Mitch for his mishandling of the coal miners black lung fund, you would think Mitch would not have as support as he does. However, after Jim Carey sent out that blistering tweet, a right-wing news site "Front Page Mag" ripped into Jim Carey and deemed him untrustworthy and pretty much-rejected the idea of Carey having an opinion. Of course, the site made it a left-wing issue.
The Front Page Mag editor went on an epic rant defending Moscow Mitch's record, attempting to debunk the history of gun violence in America and blamed liberal media for bringing awareness to the violent nature of white supremacist groups.
What gets me is right-wing blogs are always calling liberals snowflakes and cry about media censorship. Often these bloggers are the most disrespectful writers who constantly talk about locking up Hillary Clinton and hanging Obama.
Yet when it comes to Moscow Mitch, they want lefties to leave him alone. Right-wingers are the real snowflakes. I am not a fan of liberals but conservatives are the bullies that beat people up but when someone punches them in the face they run and cry to their mommy.
So what if Jim Carey compared Mitch McConnell to Osama Bin Laden, it's no different from what conservatives have said about Obama and every other so-called liberal.
As we all remember, the infamous building 7 was never struck by a plane but yet the building fell to the ground, demolition style. Building 7 has been a topic of discussion for many conspiracy theorists and 9/11 skeptics and rightfully so. There is even rumored to have been secret information that needed to be destroyed inside of building 7. One conspiracy site makes the claim that building 7 was the command center for the 9/11 operation. http://www.911hardfacts.com/report_07.htm
A new study conducted by 9/11 Truth researchers believe they have proof that World Trade Center building 7 did not collapse because of an uncontrollable fire.
Dr. Leroy Hulsey, a civil engineering professor at UAF, led the 4-year study which according to his report disagrees with the NIST report which claimed debris from the north tower caused the fires to ignite in WTC 7.
"The primary and backup water supply to the sprinkler systems for the lower floors relied on the city's water supply, whose lines were damaged by the collapse of WTC 1 and WTC 2," a fact-sheet on the NIST investigation said. "These uncontrolled lower-floor fires eventually spread to the northeast part of WTC 7, where the building's collapse began."
Dr. Leroy Husley also released a statement:
"We virtually simulated the building and we looked at that analysis and we also virtually simulated what they did, we couldn't get it to do what they did," Hulsey said.
Interestingly, the new report by the UAF has made little to no headlines and has been buried only to be revealed b certain conspiracy websites. I find this to be odd because for weeks the media has replayed the speech that former Daily Show host John Stewart made, slamming Congress for not acting fast enough to protect the funding of 9/11 victims.
I called it! Biden may have just confirmed my sneaky suspicion. I knew when Kamala Harris called him out for being on the wrong side of the bussing issue back in the 70s, Biden would most likely pick a minority for his VP to win over whatever Black voters he may have lost.
This is just a personal opinion of mine but I believe Biden will pick Corey Booker as his VP. It just makes sense when you think about it. Booker is popular but not so popular that he would overshadow Biden.
Some people think he may pick Kamala Harris but I don't see them getting along and plus to reiterate my point I made earlier, Kamala would overshadow him. Plus to Kamala Harris has too much baggage. She is not popular in the Black community due to her horrible record as AG in California.
According to The Washington Post, Biden spoke about who he would pick for VP.
“Whomever I pick, preferably it will be someone who was of color and/or a different gender, but I’m not making that commitment until I know that the person I’m dealing with I can completely and thoroughly trust as authentic and on the same page [as me].” Biden said.
During the second Democratic Presidential debates, Biden mistakenly called Booker "Mr.President" and they chuckled at the slip-up. I don't think it was a mistake. I believe Biden knew exactly what he was doing and was sowing the seed right there in front of the entire country.
Jeffrey Epstein's death has sparked much controversy and speculation. The biggest rumor is the higher-ups are trying their best to hide the Epsteins connection to some very important people. Although Epstein is dead the case is still very much alive.
According to multiple sources, the FBI is still investigating Jeffrey Epstein and his associates. Here's where things get a little strange, one of the key witnessess in the Jeffrey Epstein case has disappeared.
Not only has this key witness disappeared but this witness has vanished without a trace. It's hard to believe this is even possible, after all, the FBI is involved.
You would think a key witness in a high profile case would not only be protected but certainly watched by the FBI closely.
Jeffrey Epstein committed suicide and somehow managed to do it in prison after being taken off of suicide watch. It sounds to me like a major cover-up is going on here. There are women that are set to testify and reveal some damaging information about some of Epstein's associates. Prince Andrew has already been outed as one of the men tied to Epstein that forced a then underage teen to perform sexual acts on him.
After learning that the key witness, in this case, has disappeared without a trace, I strongly feel these women that are set to testify against Epstein and his associates are now in danger.
This story is unbelievable but true. Two NYPD officers took turns having sex with a teenage girl back in 2017. The girl goes by the alias, "Anna Chambers" accused the officers of taking turns having sex with while she was handcuffed in the back of a police car.
Officers Eddie Martins and Richard Hall could have gone to jail for 25 years but as we all know, cops are almost nearly never arrested for anything ever!
According to "The Sun" - the officers took a plea deal in order to avoid serving time.
After Anna Chambers heard about the ruling, she went on twitter and let the world how she felt about the ruling.
“F*** the justice system lmfaooo s***s a joke.”
This is just another example of the broken justice system and shows the corrupt the police departments are.
There is no way in hell the same people that are supposed to uphold the law and lock up people for breaking the law should be able to continuously break those same laws and not be punished for it.
Prosecutor Eric Gonzalez:
“These defendants engaged in a shocking abuse of power, which they finally acknowledge."
Former Secretary of Defense James Mattis sends a warning to America in an essay that will be followed up by a book he be publishing in the near future.
Mattis warns of the United States occupying an "increasingly lonely position" that "puts us at increasing risk in the world."
As Trump continues to ruin the reputation of America across the world, this warning is just common sense to anyone with a brain but Trump supporters for some reason believe Trump's tactics are a sign of strength. This has further emboldened Trump to act more like a dictator than as the President of the United States.
Mattis suffered the same fate as everyone who served under Trump's administration. He spoke his mind and he was fired for it.
"Using every skill I had learned during my decades as a Marine, I did as well as I could for as long as I could," Mattis writes of his time in the Trump administration. "When my concrete solutions and strategic advice, especially keeping faith with our allies, no longer resonated, it was time to resign, despite the limitless joy I felt serving alongside our troops in defense of our Constitution," Mattis wrote.
Mattis would also point out the division within America itself pointing out the tribalism that continues to be a dangerous trend among citizens.
Although Trump is not to blame for everything, he has definitely has been adding fuel to the fire, invoking a us versus them attitude which is in complete
contrast to the Presidents that proceeded him.
I am not a person that has jumped on the recession is coming bandwagon, however, I can see why some would believe a recession is on its way. Trump still a year left to bankrupt America which is plenty of time to get the recession ball rolling.
One thing I have said since day one is Trump will completely destroy whatever credibility the United States has left with its allies as well as its rivals. How many times has Trump made a threat and backed away from it later? How many deals have and policies has Trump tried to destroy that were in place under the Obama administration? Again there are too many examples to count. Fake news and broken promises have become the everyday practice under the Trump administration. It has come to a point were world leaders don't even take Trump seriously and Trump represents America.
This essay by James Mattis is just confirmation by the former Secretary of Defense.
Rashon Kahn has the internet buzzing after dropping a bomb on everybody. He made the bold claim that Paul Mooney had sex with Richard Pryor's son Richard Pryor Jr. He would go on to state that not only did this happen but Richard Pryor Sr knew about it and was willing to pay someone $1Million to kill Mooney.
TMZ managed to get a response from Richard Pryor Jr. When addressing the issue he said:
“Whatever happened in my life, it happened when I was young. Way before the ’80s.”
Paul Mooney has denied Kahn's claim.
People associated with Mooney said this:
“The timeline of events simply doesn’t add up, especially since Richard Sr. and Paul were hanging out as late as 1999.”
At this point it hard to know who is telling the truth. Mooney actually brought up a good point about the timeline being out of order. If Richard Pryor Sr actually wanted to kill Paul Mooney back when this alleged incident took place, it would be hard to ses how Pryor Sr would have still kept Mooney around as an associate/friend. Nobody in their right mind would be caught hanging out with a man that molested their child.
The question I'm asking is this,is Rashon Kauhn making this story up? Is he just trying to sell his book that is to be published soon?
It appears that something happened the question is when did it happen? Mooney is being accused of child molestation so the timeline of the events in question is more important than the gossip.
We may never know the truth.
I got a nice little conspiracy theory for yah and it's not about Qanon this time but I'm sure Qanon would love it. There is theory floating around that Steve Kobs faked his death. Yep, that Steve Jobs, the Apple guy.
Someone took a picture of a man in Egypt and posted it online making the claim that the man in the photo is actually Steve Jobs.
I saw the photo and I actually have to admit the man sort of looks like Steve Jobs. So the theory is Jobs faked his death and is hiding out in Egypt.
In an article posted in the Irish Post, it says conspiracy theorists have already pointed out the man slipped off his shoes when he sat down, which is something that Jobs use to do all of the time.
The photo was originally posted on Redditt and has received a lot of attention. People these days love good conspiracy. Who knows, maybe its true, maybe Steve Jobs faked his death to live a nice quiet life but then you would have ask why and whats the point?
Jean Cramer, a candidate for city council in Maryville Michigan, shocked everyone in the political forum by actually suggesting that they keep the city as White as possible.
“Keep Marysville a white community as much as possible,” said Cramer, one of five candidates vying for three open council seats in November.
As much as the politicians may act as if they are shocked by Jean Cramer's comments but we all know gentrification is happening in every major city in America. Although Marysville is not a major city and is a majority-white town, it is the way Cramer wants to keep it.
It's very rare that you see a politician actually be honest and tell the whole world how they feel about Black people.
This is one of those moments.
[Keep city as white 'as much as possible,' council candidate says, stunning forum in Michigan]
The Trump administration has added another reason to vote Trump out of office in 2020. The administration's proposal to change the food stamp program will likely cut off millions of poor people from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP).
Trump's food stamp proposal may become a scary reality to the people who need it the most. The proposal potentially takes away SNAP from 3.1 million families that depend on it.
Ironically, many of Trumps supporters will be hurt by the proposal as well. It has been reported that the majority of Americans that are receiving government assistance such as food stamps are poor White Americans. Newsweek posted an article back in January of 2018 stating the following, "whites are the biggest beneficiaries when it comes to government safety-net programs like the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families, commonly referred to as welfare."
The full article can be seen in the link
It seems as if Trump is making an effort to cut welfare and food stamps, as he continues to attack poor people while giving tax cuts to the wealthy. However, Trump's proposal to change food stamp qualifications has been met with pushback.
According to USA Today, 70 mayors from across the country spoke out against the proposal in a letter sent to the Department Of Agriculture on Wednesday.
"During times of economic downturn, every additional $5 dollars in SNAP benefits generates up to $9 dollars of economic activity, and every $1 billion increase in SNAP benefits results in 8,900 full-time equivalent jobs," the letter said.
The USDA responded by stating that the cuts could help save money. Baltimore Mayor Jack Young was among the 70 Mayors that rejected the new proposal and with good reason. The city of Baltimore could be devastated by the cuts. Approximately, 15,000 people in Baltimore City depend on SNAP.
These proposed cuts could cause children to in low-income communities to go hungry at school.
The USDA is not backing down from their stance claiming the proposal could save billions in taxpayer funds.
With all the talk about an impending recession, no one wants to hear about a trade war with China, no one except the President of the United States. Trump made it clear that the trade wars will not end anytime soon. Despite the recession talks and damn near every economic forecaster saying there are obvious warning signs of a recession Trump has doubled down on his trade war with China, bragging that China has had it's worse year in financially in 24 years.
Trump would tell reporters that China has been ripping America off for far foo long and somebody had to take them on. Trump spoke about himself in a heroic manner as if he was David taking on Goliath. The important part of all of this is Trump feels a 2-month recession is something he willing to allow for the greater good which is bringing down China.
A recession is very tricky and falling into one can be dangerous for many reasons.
To assume that the recession will only last for 2-months gives us all a little bit of a peek inside of the mind of Trump.
As of right now, there is a lot of chitter-chatter about a coming recession. Of course, opinion matters and political affiliation usually determines one's belief in political matters. I have come across websites that have debunked the recession reports, claiming the economy is doing better than ever. Right-wing bloggers are mostly claiming all of the recession talk is just left-wing propaganda and should not be taking seriously. The question is who's data is correct? Who is producing the right information and what is the truth in the matter?
Some bloggers claim the very idea of a recession is a myth and a giant hoax. Their theory is recessions are just a creation of the powers that be. Some make the claim that information on the economy is something that is manipulated by people in power to control the mind set of the average joe and small businessmen. We are change wrote an article about this back in 2014.
I left the below.
Another article worth reading is "Debunking the myth of the great recession" by dailyreckoning.com
Check out the link below.
Assuming the recession is real, it could potentialy sink Trumps ship before the 2020 Presidential debates.
Trump's trade wars have been a political talking point and could very well become Trump's version of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, leading into a recession and possibly something worse. The world has changed its view on American policies on trade and international affairs. Trump has shwon the world that the U.S does not keep it's word and depending on who the President is, the U.S will not always keep it's promises nor honor the agreements that have been made by prior administrations. Who can trust the U.S at this point and why would they?
It is not possible for republicans to ever blame Trump for anything. I remember when Obama first took office, he inherited the Bush recession and Republicans called it Obama's recession.
You may be thinking why am I bringing up Bush and Obama? Well, history repeats itself. Liberals are using the word recession more and more these days and it is hard to tell if it is real or just a scare tactic. Either way, Trump has owned the economy. Trump has taken credit for the so-called economic surge since the day he stepped foot in the white house.
Every President has a legacy they leave behind and at the moment Trump's trade wars have become his legacy.
If the U.S economy actually tanks within the next year, it will be interesting to see who Trump blames this time. I can all but assure you that republicans will somehow blame the next president. Ironically, this possible recession will hurt Trump's base the most. Yet, I cannot see his base admitting it. Will his base even be smart enough to understand what happened to them? Or will history continue to repeat itself?
After news broke out about Jay-Z's partnership with the NFL, the rapper and businessman has a new title, he is being labeled a sell-out by the people that still support Colin Kaepernick. Jay-Z criticized Travis Scott for performing at the SuperBowl this year. Just six months later Jay-Z partners with the NFL and is asking the Black community to just move on.
The internet has been mostly divided on this topic. The real question is, can we move on? More importantly, is it time to move on? The NFL has shown its ability to blackball an athlete that speaks on social justice. Also, the NFL has become defiant towards Kaepernick who did not say anything disrespectful, he just to a knee in silent protest but the league took issue with it in the worse way possible.
I believe the real reason the NFL is even doing this partnership with Jay-Z, is damage control. Sometimes businesses underestimate the power of the Black community. By blackballing Kaepernick, it made the NFL appear to be siding with Trump. That's not a reputation you want to have when the majority of your players are Black. The Jay-Z partnership is just too little, too late. All they can do now is ruin what little credibility JayZ has in the Black community.
