Sen. Ron Johnson confirmed to SaraACarter.com Saturday morning that he has tested positive for COVID-19 and noted that he was surprised he was positive, because he has no symptoms as of yet.

He was tested out of an abundance of caution because he was in contact with another Senator who tested positive for the virus. He is the third senator to test positive in recent days, among many other government officials.

On Thursday, President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump confirmed that they had contracted coronavirus, after it was confirmed that Hope Hicks, a close aide to Trump had the novel coronavirus.

By Saturday, White House doctors made the decision to send President Trump to Walter Reed Hospital in Bethesda for treatment for the virus out of an abundance of caution. Trump had mild symptoms, including a low-grade fever and a cough.

He is doing well according to White House officials and sent a Tweet thanking all those who have prayed for his speedy recovery.

According to Fox News, since Trump’s positive test, Senator’s Thom Tillis, R-N.C., and Mike Lee, R-Utah have all tested positive, along with the most recent, Johnson.

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.”
