Here's a new aspect that hasn't been brought! Tip O'Neill, former Democrat Speaker off the House, once explained why Democrats won election after election! Since 1968 the most prominent and powerful Political Party in our country has been the Democrat Party! They've sculpted our society today! Tip made the simple statement that, "All Politics Is Local"! What he meant was that regardless of any National Issue, the rank and file voter will believe and vote for the politicians that stands before them with promises to deal with their local area the most! He can promise to fix the highways! He can promise a New Civic Center, and if he touches at all on a National issue it will be vague, wishy-washy but it will be in terms that affect the local people. We generally buy snake-oil from someone we can relate to! Once elections are won, promises are generally ignored! What Nancy Pelosi and her Democrats have done is scare the bejesus out of everyone, attempt to destroy our economy and, since the economy is nowhere near where it was at the height of Trump, they want to keep it that way. They can't, in any shape or form, defeat Trump with good ideas and strong policies. They have none! So their "ONLY" hope is to "TURN" the country against him. Nobody on the Left, in the Democrat Party or in the Mainstream Press gives Trump credit for anything (except for Cuomo and a couple of other Governors and they were taken to the woodshed) and have done nothing but complain, disagree, accuse, and generally vilify Trump on everything. Nancy has managed to make a National Issue a "REAL" National Issue which effects everyone in the country. It can't be ignored in favor of a new Dog Pound Facility! Does she really think that the people of Smalltown, Boise, Idaho, will really care if that Democrat politician in front of them promises a new Recreation Center or promises to get the roads fixed? They're worried about survival, a job, food, making bill payments, mortgage payments! Nancy Pelosi was a great fundraiser for her Party and she twisted arms to get the Speakership again after losing it the first time! She's NOT a political genius! She's a fool and she's destroying her Party and Democrats are going to let her do it!
TRUMP 2020 AND BEYOND!

REOPENING WITHOUT TESTING AND PUBLIC SPRAYING IS DEATH SENTENCE By: Dr. Israel Romero, JD (International Jurist), PhD To have a reliable and safe vaccine will take some time because coronavirus is unique, so the vaccine must be. Trying variations to current shots like flu and SARS doesn’t work even though COVID-19 has SARS as basis. Trump psychosis for the dollar constitutes a national security issue. He is pushing to “liberate Michigan, Minnesota and Virginia,” is dangerous. Some president supporters challenged Michigan governor asking to end the stay-at-home curfew. Unfortunately they don’t know what they are asking for. Immediate reopening without testing the entire country population and without disinfecting public places and streets by spraying to kill virus present in the environment, equals to a death sentence. Viruses are microscopic organisms that exist almost everywhere on earth. The coronavirus is a parasitic strand of DNA or RNA encapsulated in a protein coat that enters the cells by wearing a protein coat made out of proteins needed by a certain cell. Prefers the ACE-2 needed mostly by heart, lungs and kidneys in humans. Can stay in the environment for years but collapses at high temperatures or by the action of chemical insecticides. Like any other virus, the one causing COVID-19 will be in earth forever. Shall reappear for cycles, similar to the flu virus. Due to its condition, can be pushed to mutate in a lab by applying special proteins. Then, applying electric chokes is activated and mixes, forming a new microorganism. This is the biological theory that makes think coronavirus was produced at a lab for irresponsible scientists, or under duress by corrupt tyrant government entities. A question that can be answered without hesitation is, do illnesses provoked by viruses can be cured? The answer is NO! They can be prevented with a special vaccine for that specific virus because the shot stimulates the immune human defense system to produce specific antibodies for this specific virus. This is the reason why effective vaccines take long time, perhaps years to be developed with the least side effects. Remember, some medications cure something but produce worse illnesses, like cancer. So a vaccine can be. Based upon above statements we can tell people that looking for shortcuts is dangerous, and vaccines formulated for other illnesses don’t work but can have grave consequences, including death. Hydroxychloroquine may work in other sickness but tried for coronavirus COVID-19 can be fatal. People that tried already can testify about this. In Seattle, WA failed. So did in Brasil where 81 people participated in a trial, eleven died almost instantly and the rest are hospitalized. None was cured. Again, when you have COVID-19 in a serious condition, isn’t much medical experts can do for you. Those with mild attack of fever or cough will recover by passage of time, similar to what occurs with flu. There is a scientific principle that reads that humans can deceive humans. Humans can’t deceive a virus by attacking it with something created to prevent or cure other type of virus or illness. Not even a modified one works. When you see similarities between existing virus and a new one, you think, “I got it!” Only to wake up to reality: you have to go the whole nine yards! Illusion like when you are at a dessert dying by dehydration and see water everywhere, doesn’t work. CONCLUSION. President Trump economic psychosis trying to reopen the country to normal business may be a good try if we first test every single American –to know who must be in quarantine, and after spraying public places, streets, public transportation and controlling international traveling. Other than that asking to “liberate” any parts of the country is equivalent to a death sentence for the entire country.

While millions wonder where their next meal is coming from, Nancy is at home eating ice cream . . .
Editor: The GET MY PAYMENT site (IRS PORTAL) does NOT work whatsoever if a person filed for 2019 and the taxpayer owed ZERO taxes. Perhaps millions of taxpayers (mostly older folks who faithfully filed in 2109 file but owed no taxes) today NOW cannot use GET MY PAYMENT. Description of problem: The choice on the GET MY PAYMENT site is to enter a number only for refund or amount owed in taxes. That number is of course a "0". Above that is the choice of pressing OWED MONEY or REFUND. These are the only buttons you can choose. I tried each time (various attempts) pressing one or the other button, but entering "0" of course. Each time the site tells me the system is unavailable: "We apologize for the inconvenience but this service is currently unavailable. Please try again later." If one tries NOT pushing either button, OWED MONEY or REFUND, it simply directs in bold red color warning to push one button or the other, it REQUIRES to push either button, in order to proceed. There is no choice for "NEITHER" or something like that. So it then locks the taxpayer out. So there is no way for millions of folks who are owed the stimulus $1200 to enter their BANKING INFO at all, nor to check on any status. This should be an easy fix for the IRS but no way for me to contact the IRS. Perhaps the editor of this site can, or can at least publish the issue so tax experts know about this. By the way there are dozens of posts all over the web of people who also have figured out this major "ZERO" problem exists. Not in your publication though. I was putting the info in for my mom who owed ZERO taxes on her 2019 return (which was filed in February 2019). For my wife and I the GET MY PAYMENT worked fine, easy (but I have not received our $2400 yet of course). Either way my wife and I are very technically adept, not to worry about that. I have a doctorate, I am a lawyer, my wife a business degree and was a controller. This is truly a major defect affecting millions of mostly older folks who already faithfully filed their taxes for 2019, knew they were not owed a refund, so their tax experts correctly entered no banking info (ie., not a good idea to enter banking info with a 1040 if you are to receive no refund, as you may in future change banks, etc. Note the other recent glitch now of the stimulus checks going to older defunct bank accounts, etc). Now many (like my mom) may die before the paper checks actually arrive perhaps months from now, making the paper checks essentially useless? That is just not right. Contact me if you wish.
Just a bit to make you aware
TRUMP’S NAME IN STIMULUS CHECKS RENDERS THEM NULL AND VOID By: Dr. Israel Romero, JD (International Jurist), PhD President Trump and US Treasurer have violated both Elections Law and Business Law when inserted Trump’s name in the stimulus checks. The question is whether or not banks will honor them? Probably not. Experts have the opinion that trying to make President Trump signing the checks and later inserting his name where the MEMO goes, are only delay tactics by this unconventional/nontraditional president pursuing his desire to show off his hate, disdain and efforts to discriminate against poor people, that are in dire need of funds to cover some of their monthly expenses. If the move is political or psychopathic motivated, we most analyze if violates American Law. The answer is: maybe yes because pursuant to Business Law Ch.24 states that a check is a negotiable instrument, unconditional written order that involves three parties to wit: drawer, drawee and payee. President Trump is neither. Therefore, his name on those checks violates the law, and renders the stimulus checks null and void, and banks have a legitimate reason to refuse payment when presented by beneficiaries for cashing. The MEMO section of a check indicates the reason for payment. President Trump is not the reason for such a payment by the Federal Government. Therefore, the checks will be null and void if his name appears as reason for payment because then, unquestionable will be considered political campaign advertising in violation of the Elections Law because takes advantage of a governmental program to publicize his name, something not authorized by US Congress when passed the bill for the stimulus to the economy due to the coronavirus crisis. American Elections Law states that only campaign managers or treasurers must be involved in payments or business transactions. The candidate is not authorized to appear as MEMO of any payments, even when the campaign works in promoting his candidacy. Campaign funds are an item very well scrutinized by watchdogs and by the government, especially the National Elections Board, and candidates never sign checks or receive money into personal accounts. CONCLUSION. Trying to take advantage of US Congress inability to curb him, President Trump violates the law everyday. The best chance for American voters is November 2020. Vote for Biden to get rid of this psychiatric ill person Donald J. Trump from the White House and bring the country back to normal and together.
