Both the Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA) and the Pandemic Emergency Unemployment Compensation (PEUC) programs are set to expire on December 26 unless Congress reaches a stimulus deal. Both the Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA) and the Pandemic Emergency Unemployment Compensation (PEUC) programs are set to expire on December 26 unless Congress reaches a stimulus deal. “If people had known that Congress was going to be derelict in their duty, and not provide any relief after the CARES Act, people would have done things a lot more differently,” Ajilore said. “Still, people saved their money, but saved money won’t last long when nothing’s coming in.” ‘Certain people are going to struggle a lot more’ More than half of respondents (53%) say they’ll need more than seven months for their household finances to return to pre-pandemic levels, with 1 in 3 saying it may take more than a year, the survey found. “Certain people are going to struggle a lot more,” Alijore said. “People are taking on more debt now, because they have to pay the bills.” More than a third of Americans (33.9%) reported they’ve had a somewhat to very difficult time paying basic household expenses in the first week of November, according to a recent report by the Census Bureau released last week. While jobless workers more than doubled their liquid savings between March and July, according to a study from the JPMorgan Chase Institute, they spent two-thirds of those accumulated funds in August alone. That occurred as the extra $600 in weekly unemployment benefits expired at the end of July, followed by the September expiration of the extra $300 under the Lost Wages Assistance program. “This is going to be really tough for them,” Alijore said. “The more debt you take on, the further it is going to be before you can become whole again.”

Roaming bands of white supremacists trawled the streets of Washington D.C. on Saturday, setting fires to Black Lives Matter banners and getting into stabbing fights in what appeared to be a free-for all outpouring of racist rage.

Earlier in the day, MAGA supporters gathered in the nation’s capital for a rally to protest the election results, where the Washington Post reports they heard from Alex Jones and Michael Flynn (who was recently pardoned by Trump for lying to the FBI)

Videos posted on social media show a band of diminutive, pinch-faced, red-hatted white men chanting that they will “destroy the GOP” because the party has not ensured Trump stays in office—though he has absolutely no valid claim to do so because he undeniably lost the election.

Roaming bands of white supremacists trawled the streets of Washington D.C. on Saturday, setting fires to Black Lives Matter banners and getting into stabbing fights in what appeared to be a free-for all outpouring of racist rage.

-By that evening, members of the white nationalist Proud Boys group began spreading out across the D.C. area, pulling Black Lives Matter signs off of historically Black churches and destroying them—including by setting the signs afire:

“Last night demonstrators who were part of the MAGA gatherings tore down our Black Lives Matter sign and literally burned it in the street,” said the Rev. Ianther M. Mills of Asbury Methodist Church, one of the institutions whose sign was taken by the marauding MAGAs. “For me it was reminiscent of cross burnings.”

Rev. Mills added that the church would “move forward, undaunted in our assurance that Black Lives Matter and we are obligated to shout the truth without ceasing,” but said that he found it alarming that the incidents were not being denounced at the highest levels.

President Trump notoriously told the Proud Boys to “stand back and stand by” during the presidential debates in September, and it appears that they have consequently responded to the statement as marching orders in light of their leader’s electoral loss.

At some point last night, the white nationalist group also clashed with counter protestors in physical fights in which multiple people were stabbed.
