The stock market reacted negatively to the news that Joe Biden's $1.9 trillion Covid-19 relief plan contains $1,400 stimulus checks.

The market was unhappy that the plan doesn't include the $2,000 that the president-elect promised if the Democrats swept Georgia in the Senate runoffs.

Biden announced his 2-step plan of "rescue and recovery" on Thursday, Jan. 14. The $1.9 trillion stimulus plan will include $400 billion for vaccine distribution and Covid-19 testing, $130 billion to reopen schools, as well as billions in economic aid to small businesses run by Black and brown people.

The plan also includes a hike in the minimum wage to $15 per hour, extending unemployment benefits and the federal ban on evictions, both of which are set to expire in March.

"We have to act and we have to act now," Biden said.

His proposed bill is more than double the $900 trillion recently passed by Congress that included $600 stimulus checks for Americans, while billions were sent overseas to foreign countries.

About those stimulus checks: Americans were expecting Biden to keep his promise of additional $2,000 checks if the Democrats swept the Georgia Senate runoffs in early January.

Instead, the plan includes $1,400 stimulus checks, on top of the $600 checks already sent out -- for a total of $2,000.

  • $400 per week in supplementary unemployment benefits through September.
  • $350 billion to bailout mismanaged states, cities and territorial jurisdictions.
  • $160 billion to create a national program to mobilize vaccinations to 100 million people vaxxed in the first 100 days of the Biden administration.
  • $30 billion to help landlords pay their bills while their tenants live rent-free.
  • $25 billion for childcare providers.
  • Expanded food assistance, expanded child tax credits, and expanded medical and family leave of absence for illness.

    President Donald Trump has promised an "orderly transition" of power after President-elect Joe Biden won the majority electoral college vote on January 6, 2021.

    The outgoing President, who has repeatedly accused the Democrats of orchestrating a coup against him and stealing the November 2020 election, issued a statement on Thursday.

    "Even though I totally disagree with the outcome of the election, and the facts bear me out, nevertheless there will be an orderly transition on January 20," Trump confirmed.

    "I have always said we would continue our fight to ensure that only legal votes were counted. While this represents the end of the greatest first term in presidential history, it's only the beginning of our fight to Make America Great Again."

    Trump released the statement through his deputy chief of staff Dan Scavino's Twitter account at 3:50 am ET Wednesday.

    Trump spoke to his followers via his official accounts on conservative social media platforms GAB.com and Parler.com late Wednesday.

    Trump's personal Twitter account was locked for 12 hours after he shared tweets and a video telling MAGA protesters to go home amid riots and bloodshed in Washington, D.C.

    Earlier in the day, MAGA protesters forced their way into the Capitol building and broke through doors leading to the offices of Congressional lawmakers, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Activists scrawled notes on Pelosi's desk and one protester walked off with her lectern.

    DC police sprayed tear gas at the protesters. One lawmaker reportedly suffered chest pains during the assault on the Capitol building.

    Air Force veteran Ashli Babbitt, of Ocean Beach, Calif., was shot in the face by a DC police officer when she and others forced their way through a locked door.

    Babbitt, 37, was unarmed and on the other side of a locked door when the officer shot her through the door. The officer has not been identified. Babbitt was later pronounced dead.

    Prior to the incident, Trump addressed his followers, who gathered maskless on the Ellipse near the White House: "We're going to walk down to the Capitol. We're gonna cheer on our brave senators and congressmen and women, and we're probably not going to be cheering, so much for some of them, because you'll never take back our country with weakness, you have to show strength and you have to be strong."

    After Vice President Mike Pence refused Trump's direct order to block the electoral college vote by Congress, Trump called Pence a traitor and locked Pence's chief of staff out of the White House.

    Trump was widely condemned on social media, with calls to have Trump removed from office by impeachment or through the invocation of the 25th Amendment.

    Black Twitter expressed outrage over Joe Biden's dismissive demeanor during a Dec. 8 Zoom call with Black civil rights leaders.

    According to those who listened to the nearly 2-hour audio, Biden "talked down" to the civil rights leaders, including Rev. Al Sharpton, who later defended Biden, saying he was not dismissive at all.

    The presumptive president-elect reportedly said the "defund the police" movement "beat the living hell out of" Democrats during the November elections.

    He also said Hispanics, who are double the population of Black people in America, will outnumber white people soon.

    One group that was not invited to the table was Black Lives Matter, who continue to complain that Biden is ignoring them.

    Here are some of the YouTube comments in response to the leaked audio:

    "I don't think a lot of people realize how racist Joe Biden is. It's impossible for him to talk 'to' black people, he's always talked 'at' us."

    "Biden has a tone of SCOLDING them as though he was expecting nothing but praise. I thought the point of the meeting was to SPEAK about the issues."

    "Omg. You can't have a conversation with the guy. Nothing will get done. He's defensive because he knows he's not on the side of the working class."

    "Biden is commit to raising up dozens of already affluent black people, while continuing the tradition of screwing over millions of poor black people."

    "This is embarrassing. He's speaking to ppl as though they are children."

    Joe Biden had an interesting exchange with CNN's Jake Tapper on Thursday. Tapper asked Biden how he and presumptive vice president Kamala Harris are getting along these days. Biden said they are getting along just fine.

    Biden added that if they have a disagreement, he would fully expect Harris to "develop some disease" and resign -- just as he agreed to do when he was former President Barack Obama's vice president.

    "Like I told Barack, if I reached something where there's a fundamental disagreement we have based on a moral principle, I'll, uh, I'll I'll I'll I'll I'll I'll develop some disease and say I have to resign."

    He then turned to Harris -- who shook her head no as Biden continued: Uh, we don't have -- that I'm — we haven't — and we've discussed at length our views on foreign policy, on domestic policy, on intelligence."

    Biden's supporters say he was "joking." But if he was joking, you couldn't tell by the mortified expression on Harris' face.

    Watch Biden's latest gaffe below.

    A viral video shows a Black mom going off on her son for not voting for Democratic candidate Joe Biden on Nov. 3.

    "I told you to do Biden! Now we done lost the vote... that's gon' go to Trump!" the woman screamed as she struggled to keep her car on the road. A woman in the car is heard giggling hysterically as mother and argue over his right to vote for the candidate of his choice.

    "Stop worshiping these people like they're a f***ing god," said the son.

    "Ain't nobody worshipping them. But gotdammit Chris, we need somebody in there with some mf sense!"

    Eric Benet says President Donald Trump will do anything to win the 2020 election. The 36-year-old was seen leaving a polling place on Nov. 3.

    The R&B crooner told Backgrid.com Trump will "lie, cheat and steal," to win the election. So far, the presidential race is too close to call.

    Georgia, Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Arizona are still counting votes.

    Trump supporters are stunned that Trump didn't win in a landslide on Tuesday. When America went to bed Tuesday night, Trump was comfortably in the lead in battleground states.

    Unfortunately, those states paused the vote count and resumed in the morning with hundreds of thousands of ballots counted for Joe Biden.

    In his victory speech after 2 a.m., the president called the newly found ballots "a fraud on the American public."

    He added: "This is an embarrassment to our country. We were getting ready to win this election, frankly we did win this election."

    Trump vowed to challenge the outcome in the Supreme Court where the conservatives have the majority.

    "Our goal now is to ensure the integrity for the good of this nation, this is a major fraud on our nation," he said.

    "We want the law to be used in a proper manner. We will be going to the US Supreme Court. We want all voting to stop. We don't want them to find any ballots at four o'clock in the morning and add them to the list. It's a very sad moment. To me this is a very sad moment. We will win this. As far as I am concerned, we already have won."

    Beyonce declared her support for Democratic candidate Joe Biden and his running mate Kamala Harris at the last minute - the day before the presidential elections.

    One can only guess why Beyonce took her time declaring her support for Biden, 77, and Harris, 56.

    The singer posted a Boomerang clip of herself wearing head-to-toe Balmain with a Biden and Harris mask with an "I voted" sticker on her hat.

    She captioned the image: "Come thru, Texas! #vote..." in reference to her home state, which is one of the swing states Biden needs to defeat Trump.

    The 40-year-old singer and her 50-year-old husband, Jay-Z, always vote for blue no matter who is on the ticket.

    They spoke out in support of Hillary Clinton in 2016 at a rally in Ohio, where Beyonce performed.

    Clinton lost by a landslide in an election upset that still reverberates with Democrats and the news media to this day.

    50 Cent's ex Chelsea Handler says the hip-hop mogul will "absolutely" vote for Joe Biden after Fiddy threw his support behind President Donald Trump last week.

    "I DM'd him and said, 'Please give me a call, I don't wanna do this publicly,'" she told NYC radio show Breakfast Club on Thursday.

    Handler apologized for telling Jimmy Fallon she had to remind 50 Cent he was a Black man.

    "He called me and I just asked him if he was serious." Handler said. "I [was] not telling him, as a white woman, because I misspoke earlier when I said, 'I had to remind him he was Black.' I don't have any business saying anything like that, so I need to apologize to everyone for saying that, because that's inappropriate."

    Handler said she asked how 50 could possibly support this "white supremacist" for President. "Whether you're Black or white, it should be a problem for you," she added. "I asked him, and he was like, 'No, I was just screwing around... The taxes are a pain in the ass.' Yeah, but Republicans have told us all how to avoid taxes, so if that's our goal we can figure out a state to live in where we don't have to pay our taxes."

    Handler said 50 told her he "absolutely" would be voting for Biden.

    Trump supporters on TheDonald.win expressed their disappointment by depicting the rapper as a runway slave being whipped by his master (Handler).

    In an effort to reconnect with his old flame, Chelsea Handler, rapper 50 Cent denounced President Donald Trump a week after endorsing him.

    In a post on Instagram last week, Fiddy endorsed Trump, saying he was not in favor of Democratic challenger Joe Biden's planned 62% tax hike for New Yorkers.

    But the rap mogul changed his mind after his alleged ex-girlfriend Chelsea reminded him that he was Black and she offered to take him back if he denounced Trump.

    "Hey fucker! I will pay your taxes in exchange for you coming to your senses," Handler tweeted. "Happily! Black lives matter. That's you, fucker! Remember?"

    During an appearance on Jimmy Fallon's talk show, she said, "I had to remind him that he's a Black person so he can't vote for Donald Trump and he shouldn't be influencing an entire swath of people who may listen to him because he's worried about his own personal pocketbook."

    She continued:

    "I haven't heard from him yet but I'm ready to seal the deal in more ways than one if he changes his mind and publicly denounces Donald Trump. I might be willing to go for another spin if you know what I'm talkin' about."

    Fiddy appeared to take her up on her offer. He posted on social media:

    "A what, another spin. Fuck Donald Trump, I never liked him. For all I know, he had me set up and had my friend Angel Fernandez killed but that's history. LOL."

     

    Black people in America are trained to only vote for Democrats who offer them nothing in return for their blind loyalty.

    Joe Biden also reminded Black people who they should vote for simply because of the color of their skin.

    In May, Biden, 77, sparked public backlash when he told radio personality Charlamagne tha god "you ain't Black" if he didn't choose him over Trump.

    Black Twitter erupted with condemnation and a plethora of Biden dementia memes. Biden is rumored to be suffering from the longterm effects of senile dementia.

    Many on Black Twitter said Biden would not have insulted any other race in such a manner.

    MSNBC interviewed three undecided Black women voters in Atlanta the day before the third and final presidential debate. The segment aired on Thursday, Oct. 22, hours before the debate.

    The women were passionate and very vocal about what they view as the Democrats taking their votes for granted. They each expressed their opinions that they want to hear what the Democrats are going to do for Black people NOW - not after the election.

    Every four years Black people stroll to the polls and get nothing in return for their votes. They then watch as every other community benefits, while the Black community continues to struggle.

    If you missed MSNBC's segment last night, I posted a clip below. I also posted a reaction video from a young man who digs deeper into the problem of Democrats courting the Black vote before every election and then ignoring the needs of the Black community for years.
