Wow! At least there is some good news on the U.S. stock market front. It’s been a tough several weeks in the news with the killing of George Floyd by a Minneapolis Police officer and the ensuing rioting and protests that have gripped our nation.
But on Tuesday, the DOW surged higher than expected and according to Market Watch, it’s “looking to extend the previous day’s gains, partly boosted by better-than-expected data on retail sales and a report of a potential therapeutic for patients with severe COVID-19 symptoms.”
That’s two pieces of news everyone can agree is good for our nation. Moreover, the stock market surge is also due to President Donald Trump’s recent announcement that he is backing a $1 trillion infrastructure spending package. The package has been necessary for years and will add more fiscal stimulus to help the economy recover from the coronavirus pandemic.
The United States has really needed this plan to rebuild our nation’s eroding infrastructure. It is a plan that both Republicans and Democrats – can for the most part – agree on.
Congressional GOP hopeful Lacy Johnson, who is running against Democrat Ilhan Omar in Minnesota’s fifth Congressional district, told me on “The Sara Carter Show” Monday, that his community, which has been rocked by violent protests after the tragic death of Floyd, will best be served when you put the attention back into the real issues affecting impoverished communities. Fundamentally, Johnson said its education and economics.
“It’s a blessing, and we’re going use that and we will use (Trump’s) capabilities, his strength of things that he’s able to do for this community,” said Johnson. The Minneapolis community has suffered more than $300 million dollars worth of destruction since Floyd’s death.
Johnson said, “we’re gonna take that and we’ll move forward, rebuild this community. Once we rebuild it, we’re gonna put some things in place to bring economic growth. We’re gonna put some things in place to include to improve the quality of education. We’re gonna put things in place to improve families and make them stronger. ”
Getting the United States economy back on track after the COVID19 lockdown is imperative and a top priority for President Donald Trump. According to administration officials that I’ve spoken with, a priority is to bring back the economy, particularly in impoverished communities, and continue Trump’s plan to bring American manufacturing jobs back to the United States.
The $1 trillion plan will assist in reviving the economy. In fact, Bloomberg reported Tuesday that a preliminary version of Trump’s plan is being prepared by the Department of Transportation.
According to the Bloomberg report, under Trump’s plan, “most of the money will be earmarked for infrastructure work in roads and bridges meanwhile the rest of the funds will be devoted to building the US 5G network and improving internet services in rural areas of the country.”

Stacy Abrams: ‘No such thing as heartbeat at 6 weeks’, ‘manufactured’ for men to ‘take control of a woman’s body’
“There is no such thing as a heartbeat at six weeks,” Abrams claimed during an event at the Ray Charles Performing Arts Center in Atlanta last week. “It is a manufactured sound designed to convince people that men have the right to take control of a woman’s body.”
As National Review reports, even her own man-hating rhetoric is antithetical to the website of Planned Parenthood which said a “very basic beating heart and circulatory system develop” during the fifth to sixth week of pregnancy.
Planned Parenthood later amended its website to more closely reflect pro-abortion messaging against heartbeat laws, which ban abortions once a fetal heartbeat is detected. Now the site says a “part of the embryo starts to show cardiac activity” during that time.
Abrams is running for governor in Georgia in a rematch against incumbent Governor Brian Kemp. Abrams lost to Kemp in 2018 by more than 54,000 votes. Additionally, Abrams has never concededto Kemp and has claimed the 2018 election was “stolen from Georgians.”
Abrams words were to suggest that Georgia’s heartbeat law shouldn’t be referred to as the “Fetal Heartbeat Bill.” Her reasoning? Because “that’s medically false, biologically a lie.”
When The View co-host Alyssa Farah asked Abrams “Do you think there should be any legal limits on abortion, such as the third trimester or viability?” Abrams responded: “I believe that abortion is a medical decision, not a political decision…Arbitrary politically-defined timelines are deeply problematic because they ignore the reality of medical and physiological issues.”
“Abortion is a medical decision, not a political decision … The limit should not be made by politicians who don’t understand basic biology or apparently basic morality,” she added.
Kemp is up 6.6 percentage points in RCP polling average over Abrams.
