Biden administration is considering awarding $450,000 per person to families separated at the border under Trump's zero-tolerance policy: Payout could run to more than a billion dollars



The Biden administration is considering paying out a whopping $450,000 per person to families separated at the southern border as it tries to settle lawsuits with migrants who say the policy caused them lasting psychological damage. Officials from the Departments of Justice, Homeland Security, and Health and Human Services are considering the payments that could total close to $1 million for two people within the same family, people familiar told the Wall Street Journal. The American Civil Liberties Union, which represents the separated families, has identified about 5,500 children separated from parents at the border during the course of the Trump-era policy.

Is the administration literally so stupid to not realize that sums like that would immediately transform "being separated at border" into a booming business? They wouldn't necessarily use real relatives in some cases. This profligacy would make the the problem 10x or more worse. And as the swarms increase Biden would just shower them with more and more money?!

President Biden on Friday cruised through Rome with an 85-vehicle motorcade — drawing criticism for the poor optics ahead of a global warming summit in Glasgow, Scotland, to which Biden is bringing about a dozen top US officials.

“Biden arriving at the Vatican. His motorcade is lonnnnnng,” tweeted Washington Post reporter Chico Harlan, along with a video of the procession.

“#Decarbonize this,” one person captioned the video.

“America’s Marie Antoinette class is Washington’s elites – and that shows it,” another person responded.

Biden routinely says there’s a “climate crisis” caused by fossil fuels. It’s unclear how many of the motorcade vehicles are electric plug-ins or hybrids, but they appeared to be standard gas-guzzling limos, SUVs and vans.

A different Washington Post reporter, Seung Min King, wrote in a White House pool report that “we are told it is 85 vehicles” in the motorcade.

The president’s domestic motorcade usually features only a couple dozen vehicles, not including those used to block off traffic.

Video of the unusually long motorcade in Rome shows the presidential Beast limo and a decoy followed by a stream of other cars — some with flashing police lights.

It’s possible that the White House was not responsible for the massive protective detail. Offering security generally is the responsibility of the host country and US law enforcement provides protective motorcades for foreign leaders in DC.

Biden departed for the trip Thursday after unveiling a $1.75 trillion framework for social and environmental spending that includes $555 billion in green-energy and anti-pollution spending that he wants Democrats to pass.

Biden said the legislation would “turn the climate crisis into an opportunity.”

“Folks, we all have that obligation — that obligation to our children and to our grandchildren,” Biden said of curtailing the use of fossil fuels.

After reaching the Vatican in the massive motorcade, Biden said he and Pope Francis discussed climate change.

Biden said he and the pope discussed the “moral responsibility to have to deal with this.”

The media and corporate swine have short term memory, when the Hollywood actors used to say the exact same thing about Trump all of them were happy to report it...Now with their guy in office and failing miserably they can't stand it, what a bunch of shallow whiny snowflakes...

Anti-Biden rallying cry 'Lets Go Brandon' causes mainstream media meltdown

(Excerpt) x...3

An Associated Press reporter even admitted to nearly getting kicked off a plane for storming the cockpit when a pilot on a Southwest flight from Houston to Albuquerque allegedly signed off his announcement for passengers by saying, "Let's go Brandon."

The possibility of a pilot using the term caused reporters to hyperventilate.

At times I almost wish the craziest leftist policies would be fully implemented, so that they could be decisively discredited. But that is outweighed by the fear that the damage done could be permanent.

Politically speaking our country is center/right, liberals are the minority and these progressive/marxists are an even smaller minority...Yet people like Bernie Sanders and AOC think they have the will of the people, such narcissistic attitudes...

Welcome home, Joe: Stoney faced Biden REFUSES to comment on Republican Glenn Youngkin's victory over McAuliffe in Virginia's governor's race: Stunning rebuke to president's agenda comes HOURS after he declared Democrats WOULD win



All major news networks called the Virginia gubernatorial race in favor of Republican Glenn Youngkin just after 12:30am Wednesday morning. With 95% of precincts reporting, Youngkin leads Democrat Terry McAuliffe by about 2%, 51.1% to 48.2%. Virginia has now elected its first Republican governor since 2009. It also elected its first black woman to statewide office in the state's history, Winsome Sears, to the office of lieutenant governor as a Republican. Hours earlier, McAuliffe had refused to concede the race when he took the stage at 10:20pm, saying: 'We're going to continue to count the votes because every single Virginian deserves to have their vote counted.' Republican National Committee chairwoman Ronna McDaniel put out a statement declaring Youngkin victorious and congratulating him on the win. 'The red wave is here! Congratulations to Republicans Glenn Youngkin, Winsome Sears, and Jason Miyares on their incredible campaigns and hard fought victories.' 'A Republican wave is coming in 2022, and Virginia is just the start,' she said. Jason Miyares, a Republican, won his race for attorney general, spelling a GOP sweep in the Old Dominion. Republicans have not won a statewide race in Virginia in 12 years, and President Joe Biden carried the state by 10 percentage points.
