Why the President signed the spending bill

President Trump explains, in his own words:

As President of the United States it is my responsibility to protect the people of our country from the economic devastation and hardship that was caused by the China Virus.

I understand that many small businesses have been forced to close as a result of harsh actions by Democrat-run states. Many people are back to work, but my job is not done until everyone is back to work.

Fortunately, as a result of my work with Congress in passing the CARES Act earlier this year, we avoided another Great Depression. Under my leadership, Project Warp Speed has been a tremendous success, my Administration and I developed a vaccine many years ahead of wildest expectations, and we are distributing these vaccines, and others soon coming, to millions of people.

As President, I have told Congress that I want far less wasteful spending and more money going to the American people in the form of $2,000 checks per adult and $600 per child.

As President I am demanding many rescissions under the Impoundment Control Act of 1974. The Act provides that, “whenever the President determines that all or part of any budget authority will not be required to carry out the full objectives or scope of programs for which it is provided, or that such budget authority should be rescinded for fiscal policy or other reasons (including termination of authorized projects or activities for which budget authority has been provided), the President shall transmit to both Houses of Congress a special message” describing the amount to be reserved, the relevant accounts, the reasons for the rescission, and the economic effects of the rescission. 2 U.S.C. § 683.

I will sign the Omnibus and Covid package with a strong message that makes clear to Congress that wasteful items need to be removed. I will send back to Congress a redlined version, item by item, accompanied by the formal rescission request to Congress insisting that those funds be removed from the bill.

I am signing this bill to restore unemployment benefits, stop evictions, provide rental assistance, add money for PPP, return our airline workers back to work, add substantially more money for vaccine distribution, and much more.

On Monday the House will vote to increase payments to individuals from $600 to $2,000. Therefore, a family of four would receive $5,200. Additionally, Congress has promised that Section 230, which so unfairly benefits Big Tech at the expense of the American people, will be reviewed and either be terminated or substantially reformed.

Likewise, the House and Senate have agreed to focus strongly on the very substantial voter fraud which took place in the November 3 Presidential election.

The Senate will start the process for a vote that increases checks to $2,000, repeals Section 230, and starts an investigation into voter fraud.

Big Tech must not get protections of Section 230!

Voter Fraud must be fixed!

Much more money is coming. I will never give up my fight for the American people!

It's fair to observe that the President will still have to follow through on the recissions, but it looks as if the Impoundment Control Act will permit him to essentially line-item veto the various provisions that the American people found so offensive. In other words, the jury is still out.

And notice that this is not a move that makes sense for a President who does not expect to be in office after January 20, 2021. Regardless, as always, wait 48 hours before you attempt to judge his actions. And remember, Congress already had the votes to override a presidential veto. Perhaps the recissions will prove to be meaningless, but we already know that the veto would have been nothing but a symbolic gesture.

Mike Cernovich disagrees:

Tonight was the end of any remaining hopes - delusional or otherwise - that Trump would remain in office for a second term. 

He capitulated totally, a pathetic act of weakness leaving a stain on his presidency. 

Entered a lion, left a lamb. Mitch’s and Pelosi’s favorite mutton.

I've always had more confidence in the God-Emperor than Cerno. We shall see who is more correct in the coming four weeks.

Given historical twisting of statutes to apply in areas never envisaged in the original cases, it would be a supreme irony if Trump successfully applies the Impoundment Control Act to effectively give himself a line item veto. Especially in light of the SCOTUS' total abandonment of any principle when it comes to the state vs state suits.

Btw a dead Trump is not the worst possible scenario.

Is anyone else here absolutely DONE with Cerno?
Measured skepticism, a slight lingering doubt and average lack of confidence are one thing. Cerno's above evaluation equates to merciless piling on of someone he sees as utterly defeated.
Trump still has paths available to him and I've been hugely disappointed with Cerno's blackpilling as of late. I usually found the guy to be somewhat intelligent (albeit a little effeminate) and his recent comments have been a let down.

Didn't the spending bill pass with a Veto Proof majority? Trump could do nothing to stop it so he did the next best thing - he's publicizing the waste while extracting some promises from Congress. Congress can break the promises they've made (and no doubt will), but they'll own it.

Blogger The Lab Manager December 28, 2020 7:06 AM  

So it seems January 6 depends a great deal upon Pence who has the choice to rollover and accept this criminal election or take a stand for something and that's assuming there is enough Republicans with some balls.

I'm guessing if that fails, then the EO/Insurrection Act is a possibility.

Blogger onyomi December 28, 2020 7:06 AM  

I started ignoring Cernovich a little while ago. His recent opinions have included:

Trump will win if GOP turns out, but they aren't going to turn out with this campaign strategy.
Election's going to go big one way or the other.
Election's going to be super tight.
If Trump recovers from Covid he will win big because hero's journey.
Shut up, who wins the election is a boring question.
I'm getting out of politics, moving on.
It's come to me in a dream: Trump wins.
Trump knows it's over and is passing the torch, a hero. I wept.
Trump shouldn't declare martial law... guys this is embarrassing!!
Trump's Pelosi's bitch.

I'm not as confident in Trump's eventual victory as Vox is. I do have more confidence in Trump's judgment than Cerno's.

Blogger Al From Bay Shore December 28, 2020 7:07 AM  

Maybe I read Trump's statement wrong but it appears that he says that future revisions are not only on the table but are likely to be undertaken. I don't see how Congress can do the things that address this bill before the January 20 (about three weeks). The man clearly expects to be POTUS for a second term.

And then there's Pence's behavior. While he is not making the same claims of victory as Trump, he is openly stating that illegal votes were cast and they must be removed from the overall tally. Also, he is NOT offering any dissent to Trump's claims of having won the election in a landslide. That may mean nothing as he might be demonstrating loyalty in a noble (or virtuous) type of way. But then there is the "off the script" statement by Sec Def, something about Pence being a source of calm and strength in the face of one of the most complex military operations in U.S. history. Anyone following Q, BDA's CIA fren, and Thomas Wictor can reasonably conclude that these complex operations are those against the CCP and, maybe, the civilian intelligence agencies.

I see nothing wrong with a feeling of confidence in Trump being sworn in on Jan 20 in light of the aforementioned factors/ actions/ words/ behaviors. We are in one of those rare moments where normalcy bias is of no use.

Anonymous Anonymous December 28, 2020 7:19 AM  

Cernovich is an interesting guy but as a few have noticed, he tents to make multiple predictions and then choose the one that ends up being closest to right and runs with it. But in his defence, Twitter is a medium where you can quite easily contradict yourself if you post too often.

I do like Ramzpaul but he has been acting like the "concerned" and "worried" posters we get here lately. He also thinks Vox calls people gammas just for disagreeing with him and not because they are gammas.

Ramz was wrong about Trump in 2016 and I'm still confident he'll be wrong again this time.

Another thing is that, as far as I can tell, he wouldn't have been able to use the Impoundment Control Act if he had simply vetoed it and Congress had overridden it. He'd have gotten nothing.

Maybe Holy Thernovitch is right. A previous line-item veto had been declared unconstitutional under Slick Willie. But maybe Trump can argue laches. Heh.

I think many blackpillers were hoping for a pocket veto and govt shutdown.

Blogger Unknown December 28, 2020 7:32 AM  

The odds on Trump's presidency ending in 2025 have actually fallen a bit in the past 48 hours, from 33/1 to 27/1. That is one objective measure, based on people actually putting their money where their mouth is. Granted the odds are still very high. My view, echoing that of other readers, is that based on the EO in 2018 in addition to the complex personnel changes post-election we ought to assume that there is something to come which has not visibly manifested itself. What did Bob Dylan sing in Meet Me In The Morning - 'they say the darkest hour is right before the dawn' - are we not in such a moment, the still moment just before the pandemonium of the storm breaking out

Override is not an issue, because he could have pocket vetoed this. Although the next Congress could have just passed it in a week.

At the same time, Section 230 was not an issue, as that was a demand for the NDAA which he did veto, not this bill.

Is yet another shoveling of billions of dollars into a multi-trillion dollar hole really an important line in the sand? Section 230 has been around since 1996 and now suddenly its repeal is the lynchpin of the nation's future?

This socio-economic rape of Americans has been going on for decades. The idea that ending immediately, this very day!, is suddenly vital, or even feasible, stinks of yet another demoralization scheme, which appears to be working on the easily demoralized.

Trump went through the courts, let them expose themselves. Now it’s the turn of Congress. He is providing, with redlines, what Texas provided. He’s even giving 1974 a chance to stay relevant, for whatever reason. Here’s some rope MF’ers.

Cernovich is probably too busy figuring out what special word to use this week. Thing is, it does not matter whether he is right or wrong, he has picked a side and is fighting, against Trump.

If Trump believed he was gone on January 20th, he wouldn't be concerned about the political consequences of pocket vetoing the entire legislation. The fact that he signed it leads me to believe that he is expecting to remain in office.

This is similar to arguments in the summer when some argued that Trump should have tried to declare martial law in places like Washington and Oregon. Instead Trump made the Democrats own their own shit-holes. If Trump had tried moving troops into Portland the Democrats would have used this as a tool for mobilizing "anti-fascist resistance." Better to let them stew in their own juice. That's also the aim here.

Cerno is ignorant...Presidents used to be able to rescind spending items, until the SC stuck its nose in against Nixon…Now Presidents can only suggest rescissions to Congress, which is one reason spending has exploded..But Trump would have looked bad vetoing even the measly 600, and probably getting overridden, so smart move politically…

Cerno has developed an effeminate tenor this year. I wrote him off this summer when he implored us to "be kind" and wear our masks. By that time, he should have known enough about the virus, its transmission, and the science on the ineffectiveness of masks to reject the self-suffocation devices. Kindness to low information dimwits is a call for mass cuckery.

Beyond that our faith is in God not Trump. Trump is an agent, smart one, and a good man but he not the end. Cerno needs to remember America's faith.

Blogger Nostromo December 28, 2020 9:50 AM  

I look at it differrntly. Of CV ouurse Trump knew that any promise he extracted from congress was worthless. Anyone with a brain knows any promise extracted from congress is worthless. But he got them to say "Yeah, we'll cut some stuff out. Give Americans moraid. He signed?! PSYCH!!"

Almost all Americans hated congress to ztart because of this abomination of a bill. Then to lie about rescinding the foreign aid stuff, and telling Americans "Here's your $600. Buy yourself something nice." Americans are absolutley livid at congress right now. So when Trump starts the storm, who is going to be backed by the populace? It ain't gonna be congress. Then youbadd on the vite evidence about to spill. If anything, this makes me MORE certain that Trump is going wading.

Trump is baiting the Republicans by forcing them to reveal that they agree with the provisions. They all used the excuse of "the American people hurt so bad, we HAVE to accept these to help them." Trump will deny them this ability by allowing them to fight the offensive provisions directly, and point it out when they likely refuse to do so.

And then there's Pence's behavior. While he is not making the same claims of victory as Trump, he is openly stating that illegal votes were cast and they must be removed from the overall tally. Also, he is NOT offering any dissent to Trump's claims of having won the election in a landslide. That may mean nothing as he might be demonstrating loyalty in a noble (or virtuous) type of way. But then there is the "off the script" statement by Sec Def, something about Pence being a source of calm and strength in the face of one of the most complex military operations in U.S. history. Anyone following Q, BDA's CIA fren, and Thomas Wictor can reasonably conclude that these complex operations are those against the CCP and, maybe, the civilian intelligence agencies.

Pence is super interesting in being Trump’s exact opposite in personality but thus far has demonstrated the same strength of will Trump has.

I want to see him follow this to the end. He may prove to be the meekest man in American politics.

Methinks Cernovich has been attending the same parties as Matt Drudge.

Cerno now believes not in God, but in "responsible shamans" whilst taking Ayahuasca. He might as well believe in Sai Baba, Baghwan, Krishnamurti or the efficacy of the lotos position for achieving longevity.

My thoughts exactly. It’s apparently too difficult for some people; they can’t resist venting their feelings, morale of the group be damned.

With the signing of this bill he has taken his last gulp of swamp water. He's no longer an outsider, he's Swamp Thing. Stop following men and follow Christ's path. I won't shed a tear if he swings with the rest of them. #DayoftheRope

@58, that is freaky stuff indeed. Is that the Cernovich that Vox knows?

Blogger MrNiceguy December 28, 2020 12:26 PM  

Veto-proof majority? If he had done a straight veto, yeah, Congress probably would have overridden it. But by impounding the terrible parts of the bill, Congress has to specifically defend those terrible parts.

A lot of congressmen that voted for the entire turd sandwich won't vote to put the turds back in.

Many are curious about what happened to Cerno. My theory: He may be suffering the way and fate of Saruman. And Judas.

Wow. He's really gotten into that gorilla mindset. I eagerly await his new book on his journey quest throughout the southwest.

The main problem with CERNO; he acts like there is gonna be an after-Trump for him. Like many people making a living out of Twitter, he's ready to move on. The 2020 US election resulted in a ''in limbo'' situation. We are left hanging in uncertainty because the Deep State cheated in the election and because DJT will rightly not concede to a fraud.

The result is : we have to wait. But Cerno and other Twitter dwellers have a lot of difficulties to stand by and accept they don't know what is going to happen like the rest of us. One can choose to see the positive side of things or the negative side. I choose the former.

Cerno has stated many times he was done helping Trump. He's not going to support Trump now that times are the hardest. Please note that he was stating not too long ago that ''election frauds always happen'' and that Biden ''stole the election fair and square''. No comment.

What's most idiotic in Cerno's behavior is that he believes political punditry will still be a thing if the DS succeed and force install Robinette Biden.

Guess what, Mike, it would be over. You would have to be stupid to still play in politic after witnessing a stolen election. Why in the world anyone would want to make political commentary when in the end the election is rigged? It means you have no more input whatsoever, Mikey! They choose the winner, it is no longer determined by votation. Hence, no more use for influencing voters with commentary.

He sees himself criticising Biden for the next 4 years... lol what a moron! And no controversies! We wouldn't want Mike to loose his blue verified tablet, wouldn't we?

“that is freaky stuff indeed. Is that the Cernovich that Vox knows?”

He has gone off the deep end. He’s also destroyed any credibility he had left.

People in the comments were saying things like, “I know what Trump did to you, but I just don’t want communism.”

Wth did the President do to Cernovitch?

Sounds like Rod Dreher talking about being a dissenter under communism, as if things will just go back to 2015. Real communists don't argue with dissenters; they kill them. I wouldn't want to count on the odds of being one of the exceptions they keep around as a useful idiot.

Maybe Trump talked to Santa, and that's why Cerno didn't get a pony for Christmas? Maybe Trump's long game has been totally frustrating to Cerno, just like it has for all of us? Come on, Donny, strike and get it over with!

The GEOTUS signed this probably for the sake of the American people who are suffering without the checks, if I have perceived his personality correctly, which seems in line with his Alpha-ness. He is like a king who is committed to cultivated fields.

Ramzpaul's disillusionment concerning Trump seems to go back to him realizing the President is a CivNat. Maybe but perhaps RZP should just ignore him in that case rather than piling on.

Blogger History Diver December 28, 2020 4:59 PM  

Everyone including the God Emperor must choose his battles. Right now Trump stands before the Rubicon and would be well advised to ensure that the poor and huddled masses on the other side of its green waters greet him with a laurel wreath instead of a crown of thorns. The bloody tears that Cerno sheds over Trump's presidency are irrelevant because they don't feed the Rubicon, they feed the black waters of the river Styx.

Trump is not an austerity junkie which is why he signed the bill, along with trying to remove the wasteful spending and redirect it back into the pocket of Americans.

Trump understands that the economy took a dive because of government (Democrat) actions. The Wuhan-Democrat virus excuse allowed the government to destroy the economy, thus destroying cash flow. The government has a duty to fix the mess they caused, either by re-opening the economy so cash flow resumes, or by replacing that cash flow with public spending.

You can see dummies like Mitt Wormney defaulting to their bean-counting bona fides. Dummy, this is not a stimulus. This is a correction to what people like you caused.

Blogger The Pitchfork Rebel December 28, 2020 7:55 PM  

I believe I said it before, but Cernovich is Ann Coulter with less T.

While I understand a woman with repressed needs being disappointed because she knighted The President from afar and was disappointed because he didn't slay all of her dragons with a single blow, Cernovich has no such excuse.

In both cases, they are principally concerned about promoting themselves.

58 Ah, Thernobitch is taking the devil's drug now. What a maroon. Maybe he shoulda just got some psilocybin, then wake up and realize all the things he already knew in his heart, but which his head was telling him were false.
I make no real claims for anyone else, but a few years ago I took hero doses of shrooms on a few occasions. I don't know if I'd be a Christian now if I hadn't done so, but I'd not be willing to risk it. Things just started lining up more and more after that. All the truths which the whole world told me were lies started being reaffirmed for me. Maybe it was just a coincidence and I just happened to be exposed to better information. Totally possible, I'd already been on my red pill journey for at least 2 years prior, so maybe it all would've happened the same with or without the psilocybin, but like I said, I'd rather not risk it.
This is not advice for anyone else.

We are in one of those rare moments where normalcy bias is of no use.

No coach or team would put up with such perpetual whining, hyperventilating and pearl clutching.

Hear, hear. I encourage everyone to consider - before hitting Publish - what it is you hope to accomplish with your comment. Not the fake justification your Gamma brain came up with for it, but the real reason. If the real reason isn't something you care to defend, then learn to squelch it.

"austerity junkie"

Tell me when you figure out what that means instead of just trying to leverage it against people who see that you have no clothes.
