Mornings with the One Percent™ Live Weekdays 7-10am, This Morning's Replay of Below!

Arnold, CA…Mornings with the One Percent™ is live weekday mornings from 7-10am. The premise for the show is that the USDA ranked all 3,142 counties or county equivalents in the USA on a livability or desirability scale based on factors such as climate, scenic beauty, bodies of water for recreation, humidity and much more. All of our area ranked not only in the top one percent but in the top one half of one percent. So in the ups and downs of daily life remember you don’t have to be a Gates, Buffett or Bezos to live like the one percent. Just live here!

Treasury sent $1.4bn in stimulus payments to dead people
The federal government spent more than $1bn on stimulus payments that went to dead people, according to the US Government Accountability Office.

The congressional watchdog said in a new report, “The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and the Treasury moved quickly to disburse 160.4m payments worth $269.3bn. The agencies faced difficulties delivering payments to some individuals, and faced additional risks related to making improper payments to ineligible individuals, such as decedents, and fraud.

“For example, according to the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration, as of April 30, 2020, almost 1.1 million payments totaling nearly $1.4 billion had gone to decedents.”

The direct cash payments were approved as part of the $2tn Cares Act, which was meant to offer Americans financial assistance amid the coronavirus pandemic and the ensuing economic fallout.

Shortly after the government started distributing the payments, reports emerged that Americans had received checks addressed to family members who had already died.

The IRS issued new guidance last month asking those who received checks addressed to dead relatives to return them to the federal government.

A new poll shows Joe Biden leading Trump in several key battleground states – including Wisconsin, where the president is visiting today to tour a shipbuilding facility.

According to the New York Times/Siena College poll, Biden leads by 11 points in Wisconsin, 11 points in Michigan, 10 points in Pennsylvania, 6 points in Florida, 7 points in Arizona and 9 points in North Carolina.

Trump won all six of those states in 2016, and he can only afford to lose a couple of them in November and still win the electoral college.

More broadly, if Trump is struggling in states like North Carolina, he’s likely losing support in other states that should be safely in his column. A poll released yesterday showed the president and Biden are virtually tied in Ohio, which Trump carried by 8 points in 2016.

There are still more than four months left until the general election, and plenty will change in that time. But it’s clear that Trump needs to start quickly turning around this trend, or he will have no chance at a second term.

      I liked that spam! Give us more. It's wonderful seeing Trump getting his butt kicked daily, mostly because of his own ineptitude. Total LOSER, with LOSER supporters.

      REPUBLICANS FOR BIDEN 2020!!!!!

We didn’t threaten TSA agents after 9/11. Why threaten health officials over masks?

When public health officials tell us to wear a mask to slow the spread of COVID-19, we should thank them, not threaten them.

    Newsome threatens jurisdictions with defunding if they do not enforce mask order.

    Defund the Calaveras County Sheriff's Office until they start to ticket people in public without masks.

A viral compilation video shows American rappers speaking out against violence in black communities and addressing police brutality.

https://youtu.be/nxc7GF2yW-0

At the beginning of the video, A$AP Rocky exposes the hypocrisy of people rioting over a single death at the hands of law enforcement while ignoring the massive amount of shootings and murders taking place in urban communities.

Explaining how black Americans can take action, A$AP said, “We have to do something first. It’s within us internally, we can’t internally blame the police officers.”

Next, rapper Kevin Gates also criticized black-on-black violence, saying, “We kill each other. As soon as a white boy kill one of us, everybody go to hootin’ and hollerin’ and all that. That’s bul**hit. If you stand for something you gotta stand for [it] all the way, not halfway.”

The Game and Snoop Dogg spoke out during an LAPD press conference to address gun violence, calling for dialogue between police and the community.

Another rapper, Wale, also said black Americans have to fear each other more than “the white man,” explaining they’re not “waiting in the bushes with a choppa. The white man ain’t trying to take the rims off your car. The white man ain’t doing all this wrong, we doing this to each other.”

Will America listen to these individuals or will white liberals continue to use the black community for their political agenda?

    It's really nice that Frogtown can show movies. I guess the local theater isn't opened yet and thought it would be, SRS.

    It’s a complicated issue, that doesn’t have one solution. People have diverse opinions, and unless you’re in Trumpland, that’s okay.

    Musicians are who I always go to for policy advice. Why ask the experts when Taylor Swift can just tell us whet she thinks should be done about the national debt?

    Maybe Mick Jagger is free to head up the covid task force?

    It is fair for the rapper to criticize black on black crime. That is no goddam excuse for police to abuse their authority, to beat, choke, shoot black citizens, some who have been innocent of any crime whatsoever.

      Exactly right, except you wrote black instead of people. Don't forget more whites are killed by police than blacks.

        True. They must not abuse their authority against anyone. I suspect though, that percentage wise, more black and brown and native people are assaulted.
