During a press briefing Friday morning from the White House, Chief of Staff Mark Meadows detailed how the administration has approached Democrats three times to reach a deal on relief for education, unemployment, and more.

Meadows said Democrats have made zero offers to find a solution — despite the proposals being the same or better than their original Health and Economic Recovery Omnibus Emergency Solutions Act (HEROES) that Democrats proposed in May.

Meadows called on Congress to “get serious” about negotiations as the enhanced unemployment benefits expire today — he accused the Democrats of playing politics in a serious and grim time for the nation.

“The President has been very clear for us to be aggressive and forward-leaning to make sure that [Americans] get protected,” Meadows said Friday morning. “What we’re seeing is politics as usual from Democrats up on Capitol Hill.”

The Chief of Staff highlighted the importance of finding a temporary solution to the expiring enhanced unemployment. Meadows said the Democrats have been approached with solutions that meet exactly what they passed in the HEROES Act — now they claim the numbers are outdated and need to be higher.

The Democrats believe they “hold all the cards” in negotiations and as a result Americans are hurting, Meadows argued.

“The Democrats have made zero offers over the last three days. Zero.”

Meadows argued the Democrats are going in the “wrong direction” in pursuing partisan politics over aiding the populous in a “dire” time.

The Chief of Staff did not take questions and turned the conference over to Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany who gave remarks and took questions.

Hidden Camera captures Principal Economist at the Federal Reserve talking about Jerome Powell’s legacy as “somebody who held the line against like, Trump.” According to hidden camera footage of Aurel Hizmo, principal economist at the Federal Reserve, the U.S. agency could have fixed inflation a while ago but refused to do so for fear of hurting President Joe Biden’s re-election efforts.

Hizmo told an undercover reporter that the Fed stopped raising the rates to tackle inflation because it could cause a recession that would likely end Biden’s 2024 campaign.

The influential agency responsible for maintaining a stable monetary system appears to not just be establishing interest rates, but to be setting policies for desired social outcomes. “Under Powell, the Fed has changed to think about equity issues, like racial issues, think about wealth inequality as part of the mandate, as part of the things we are following. Think about climate change.” Aurel Hizmo, Principal Economist at the Federal Reserve, who prior to working at the Fed was an Assistant Professor helps write speeches for Federal Reserve Board Chair Jerome Powell for the Federal Open Market Committee.

Hizmo says “Trump is just a crazy person” and conservatives are “dumb” as he describes to OMG’s American Swiper Citizen Journalist a politicized Federal Reserve Board where Powell has promoted ESG issues like climate change and “wants to be remembered in history” “as a savior.” But shhh…don’t tell anyone because Hizmo says: “I’m just really worried that I’m saying stuff that’s classified…It’s all classified.”
