    By now, most Americans have received the federal stimulus checks directed by the CARES Act in March to help consumers weather the economic downturn caused by the coronavirus pandemic. Three months later, the downturn has been declared an official recession and the official unemployment rate has soared into double digits, heightening calls for a second round of stimulus checks. There's good news and bad news on the prospects for additional government assistance. The proposed $3 trillion Health and Economic Recovery Omnibus Emergency Solutions, or HEROES, Act would authorize another round of stimulus payments for most U.S. households. While the bill...

    Three months ago, the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) was hardly on the radar for most Americans. Today, it's completely upended the largest economy in the world, displacing more than 20 million workers and unceremoniously ending the longest economic expansion in U.S. history. 1. Your payout was sent to a temporary bank account set up by a tax-prep service 2. You're receiving a paper check 3. You filed a paper tax return 4. The wrong bank account info is on file with the IRS 5. It's been seized by your bank or a collection agency

    **SNIP** Normally, when you're behind on certain debts or obligations, like back taxes or federal student loan payments, you risk having your tax refund garnished. Under the CARES Act, you won't lose your stimulus payment for those same reasons -- but overdue child support is the one exception. If you're behind on child support, your relief check could be partially garnished or garnished in full, depending on the amount you owe. Here's even more bad news: If you file a joint tax return with your spouse, and your spouse is behind on child support, your entire stimulus payment could be...

    I have heard reports of people getting their stimulus checks deposited into their accounts. My son has for sure. Mr mm went to the IRS webstie and it told him that they had not determined if we qualified or not, which is ludicrous based on the income we had for the last couple years. Has anyone else gotten their money or had problems like this? Does anyone know how to resolve it?

    Over 80 million Americans are expected to receive a stimulus check by the end of this week as part of the first wave of payments, the Treasury Department said this week. The Department expects “a large majority of eligible Americans” will get their payments in the next two weeks. While some have received theirs already, those who are still waiting for one will soon be able to track it online. Americans will also be able to provide the Internal Revenue Service with their direct deposit information if it’s not on file with the agency. “If you do not receive them...

    Most Americans can expect to get a cash payment of over $1,000 as part of the heaping $2 trillion coronavirus relief bill President Donald Trump signed on Friday to stimulate the faltering economy. The nonpartisan Tax Policy Center estimates that the free money will go to about 90% of U.S. households to help ease some of their financial pain from the pandemic, which has caused massive business shutdowns and layoffs and is making it tough for people to pay their rent, mortgages and other bills. When will I get my stimulus check? Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin has indicated taxpayers should...

Have hearing this morning on the phone at 7:30 a.m. - any advice from knowledgeable Freepers? My brother, who is a manager, said to stay calm and just stick to the facts. So, will do at least that.

    Federal law prohibits the purchase and possession of firearms by people who fall within certain categories, such as convicted felons, domestic abusers, and people with specific kinds of mental health histories. Although background checks have prevented over 3 million people in these categories from obtaining guns, federal law does not generally include other types of people identified by public health researchers as being at a significantly higher risk than the general population of being dangerous, including: -Those who have been convicted of violent or gun-related misdemeanors. -Those with a history of abusing alcohol or drugs. -Those convicted of juvenile offenses....

    Not strictly limited to politics, is a website that supposedly attempts to debunk and invalidate urban legends, Internet rumors and other stories of uncertain origin. Today, they are the voice of the statist globalist oligarchy. Of course, others mostly rich country-club Democrats, think otherwise. They point out the mission statement at the website. It is officially an “independent entity” privately owned by its operators. Not for profit? The owners, Barbara and David Mikkelson, have both publicly stated that they receive no funding in any form. Curious. Most curious. This is really, really interesting. You know, it sure is curious...

    **SNIP** The Daily Caller notes that the Privileged Account Access Form (pdf) used by the House, to garner access to IT services, allows the “authorizing official” to provide their assessment of trustworthiness via a background check in accordance with the guidance or via an attestation of trustworthiness. The Daily Caller called 44 members of Congress and found that none disputed that they had used the attestation option, but none would identify which of their colleagues provided the original attestation of trustworthiness.

As if to make up for its own chronic tardiness in updating poll results, the site has also provided conclusive figures for Alaska (Trump +3 EV) and Hawaii (Hill +4 EV), leaving the final tally at Trump 279, and Hill 218.
  • July Gun Sales Crush Previous Record (2.2 million checks)

    08/02/2016 3:10:18 PM PDT · by Red in Blue PA · 33 replies
    The number of gun-related background checks performed in July far exceeded those of any previous July, newly released numbers from the FBI show. The National Instant Criminal Background Check System, or NICS, processed nearly 2.2 million checks last month. That represents an increase of almost 600,000 checks over the previous record set last year. It is also an increase of more than a million checks over July 2011. The July record is the latest in a string of 15 record-setting months for firearm background checks. July also saw an increase over June’s numbers as the gun industry’s seasonal lull comes...

    The makers of a new Katie Couric documentary on gun violence deceptively edited an interview between Couric and a group of gun rights activists in an apparent attempt to embarrass the activists, an audio recording of the full interview shows. At the 21:48 mark of Under the Gun a scene of Katie Couric interviewing members of the Virginia Citizens Defense League, a gun rights organization, is shown. Couric can be heard in the interview asking activists from the group, “If there are no background checks for gun purchasers, how do you prevent felons or terrorists from purchasing a gun?” The...

    The Obama administration sent the first $500 million to the United Nations' Green Climate Fund this week, thumbing its nose at Republican opponents who say taxpayers shouldn't be on the hook for the money. Critics of the U.S. participating in the fund came out against the president's actions Tuesday. "President Obama continues to prioritize his political interests over the interests of the American people," said Tom Pyle, president of the conservative American Energy Alliance. "The administration intends to funnel hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars into the U.N.'s climate slush fund while pursuing a domestic agenda that will raise energy...

    Google says it is "appalled" that its new Photos app mistakenly labelled a black couple as being "gorillas". Its product automatically tags uploaded pictures using its own artificial intelligence software. The error was brought to its attention by a New York-based software developer who was one of the people pictured in the photos involved. Google was later criticised on social media because of the label's racist connotations. "This is 100% not OK," acknowledged Google executive Yonatan Zunger after being contacted by Jacky Alcine via Twitter. "[It was] high on my list of bugs you 'never' want to see happen."

You can write a check, do you hear me?” Obama told them, according to the White House pool report. “I’m serious, write a big fat check. Write the biggest check you can possibly write.” She told the group of donors that they should be as “passionate” and as “hungry” as they were in 2008 and 2012. The...

    When Siskiyou County, CA Sheriff John Lopey tried to buy an M1 Garand rifle through the Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP), he was denied and told he failed to pass the background check conducted via the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS). Lopey is a sheriff: he carries a gun and enforces the law for a living. Prior to being a sheriff, he spent 33 years with the California Highway Patrol and is a retired Army Colonel. He had Top Secret clearance in the Army. The FBI handles NICS background checks for firearms purchases. Ironically, Lopey recently went through and...
