    SAN DIEGO (AP) — A sharp drop in illegal border crossings since December could blunt a Republican point of attack against President Joe Biden as the Democratic leader moves to reshape a broken asylum system that has dogged him and his predecessors.


    You bet there's a sharp drop in border crossings. They're all here now! 
    Then why is everywhere still short staffed?
    Well they have a lot of work to do then to pay back the 150 billion they are costing us.

    Biden sticks it to Republicans with his budget proposal

    The president's proposal would seek to reduce the deficit by $3 trillion over a decade and shore up Medicare, partially by placing higher taxes on wealthier Americans.

    Joe Biden’s third budget and likely campaign blueprint — if and when he announces a reelection run — proposes tax hikes on the wealthiest Americans and corporations, the most funding ever for the military and $3 trillion in deficit-slashing policies over a decade.

    The government funding proposal, unveiled Thursday by the White House and which has no chance of passing Congress, marks both a campaign pitch and an opening shot at House Republicans who have demanded significant spending cuts. Democrats have been daring Republicans to put their demands in writing as the GOP seeks fiscal concessions in return for helping to lift the debt ceiling later this year.

    Biden went the opposite direction, instead proposing a 7 percent increase over current non-defense spending levels in addition to tax increases. And emphasizing that the document has become more a political message than policy, the president rolled out his funding proposal in Philadelphia, giving him a swing-state backdrop. Biden said his budget reflected his administration’s core value of ensuring all Americans have an “even shot.”

    “The things I’m proposing not only lift the burden off of families in America,” he said after taking the stage to chants of “four more” years. “It’s all going to generate economic growth.”

    Speaking to union members at a trade school, Biden framed his proposal as a direct challenge to House Republicans advocating for deep spending cuts amid a looming standoff over lifting the nation’s borrowing limit.

    “I’m ready to meet with the speaker any time — tomorrow, if he has his budget,” he said, referring to Speaker Kevin McCarthy. “Lay it down, tell me what you want to do. I’ll show you what I want to do.”

    Overall, the White House budget seeks more than $688 billion in non-defense funding for the fiscal year that will kick off in October. Biden is calling for a lesser increase for the military and national security programs, requesting about $886 billion for those efforts, about a 3 percent boost.

    White House officials and Democratic lawmakers have emphasized Biden’s plan to reduce the deficit largely through higher taxes on the wealthy, given Republican vows to unveil a proposal — which they’ve still not revealed — that would balance the budget within 10 years. House GOP leaders have said they’d do it without touching popular programs like Medicare and Social Security, which make up the bulk of federal spending. But they have not ruled out other benefit cuts, like placing new restrictions on federal food assistance and the Medicaid health program for low-income Americans.

    “They want to cut taxes for the wealthy and large corporations, and take away the power we just gave Medicare to lower drug prices,” Biden said. “If they say they want to cut the deficit but their plans would explode the deficit, how are they going to make the math work? What are they going to cut?”

    House Budget Chair Jodey Arrington (R-Texas) said Wednesday night that Republicans have “no timeline” for introducing that plan, and that they’re committed to studying Biden’s proposal, which “will take weeks.”

    “We are making good progress on our budget resolution,” Arrington told POLITICO.


    Until Republicans release their own plan, Biden indicated Thursday he was happy to fill the void. He warned that the GOP would seek to roll back provisions aimed at lowering drug prices and advancing clean energy, while slashing taxes on the rich.

    At one point he reminisced about his testy back-and-forth with Republicans during the State of the Union and boasted he’d successfully gotten the GOP to promise they wouldn’t touch Medicare or Social Security.

    “They’re all on camera, I’m counting on them keeping their word,” Biden said. “But just in case they don’t, I’m here.”

    Biden also used his nearly hourlong speech to tick off a list of his administration’s accomplishments, meandering at times through detailed descriptions of investments in infrastructure and semiconductor manufacturing that are likely to underpin his case for reelection.

    “We’ve got work to do,” he said. “But we made a lot of progress in the first two years.”

    The release of Biden’s budget proposal marks the start of what’s likely to be a lengthy bout with Republicans over the nation’s economic direction, including showdowns later this year over the debt ceiling and government funding.

    Senate Democrats remain undecided on whether to introduce their own budget, arguing that the onus is on House Republicans to detail their preferred cuts.

    “I think we’re going to want the caucus to take a good, hard look at the president’s budget and see if there’s any reason to recommend anything different,” Senate Budget Chair Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.) said earlier this week.

    “The ball is … in the Republicans’ court on that because they’re the ones threatening the economic security of the country with the debt limit antics,” Whitehouse said.

    As Republicans wrestle over how to approach entitlements, Biden’s proposed budget aims to extend Medicare’s life by at least 25 years by upping the tax rate on the program for Americans making more than $400,000. It also would close a loophole that has shielded some wealthy business owners and high earners from paying that tax.

    The budget would also allow Medicare to negotiate the cost of more prescription drugs, funneling about $200 billion in savings into the program.

    Biden’s plan doesn’t offer a similar fix for Social Security, noting that the administration “looks forward to working with the Congress” to ensure “that high-income individuals pay their fair share,” ostensibly by expanding payroll taxes on the wealthy, although Biden hasn’t officially embraced that idea. The budget would provide a $1.4 billion boost, or 10 percent increase, for the Social Security Administration.

    Pennsylvania Rep. Brendan Boyle, the top Democrat on the Budget Committee, said Republicans’ “biggest opponent … is not any Democrat. The biggest opponent they have is math.”

    “Everything else that the federal government does would have to be completely zeroed out and eliminated for them to balance the budget and not touch Social Security, Medicare, defense and veterans,” he said in an interview.

    Biden’s third budget is a sharp departure from his first, when he proposed trillions of dollars to buoy the faltering economy amid the pandemic. Now, facing a divided Congress for the remainder of his first term, Biden said he’s looking to build on the major spending legislation that defined his first two years in office — like Democrats’ signature climate, health and tax bill and the bipartisan infrastructure package.


    Biden also cast his budget as focused on shoring up the country’s economic stability, vowing at one point to “whip” inflation and lower Americans’ everyday costs.

    “It’s not just going to save people’s lives and save people’s money,” he said of his proposal to expand Medicare’s drug negotiation powers. “It’s going to save the government. It’s going to reduce the deficit.”

    For the Pentagon, the president is calling for $842 billion, a $26 billion or roughly 3 percent hike. The White House is also asking Congress to provide another $121 billion to fund medical programs for veterans, about a 2 percent increase over current spending.

    Meanwhile, Republicans are zeroing in on Biden’s proposed funding for the Department of Homeland Security, which is a 1 percent decrease compared to current levels, given the constant pressures of increased immigration levels at the border. A GOP aide said the president’s budget “fails to adequately fund the Department of Homeland Security.”

    “As the agency with lead responsibility for protecting our nation’s borders, transportation systems and cyber security, this is an unacceptable proposal,” the aide said.

    With government funding set to expire in just over six months, lawmakers are already talking about approving military spending levels that go far higher than Biden’s ask. Even when Democrats controlled both the House and Senate during the president’s first two years in office, Congress backed tens of billions of dollars in additional defense funding above the White House’s request.

    Selling his policy ideas as a way to drive massive deficit reduction, Biden aims to shave off $3 trillion from the federal budget gap, proposing a new 25 percent tax on billionaires, an increase in the corporate tax rate from 21 percent to 28 percent and a quadrupling of the 1 percent tax on stock buybacks that took effect earlier this year.

    Democratic leaders also lauded Biden’s proposed restoration of the expanded Child Tax Credit ushered in by the $1.9 trillion coronavirus aid package that Congress passed during his first year in office. That popular credit expired at the end of 2021, amid resistance from Republicans and Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.).

    Biden’s fiscal 2024 proposal would also fund a federal-state partnership aimed at expanding free preschool, provide national paid leave and invest $500 million in a new grant program aimed at providing free community college.

    That’s what I figured. You should read it because it’s intentionally misleading by including “US born” children. Those folks aren’t illegals. I imagine the majority of the costs are associated with children; citizens and the ones not born here but brought by their parents. So a big chunk of the expense is healthcare and education. Money well spent as far as I’m concerned, and I’m sure the ones worried about kids a drag shows would agree with me 🙂

    More than 15.5 million illegal aliens live in the United States today, costing American taxpayers over $150 billion annually, analysis from the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) estimates.
    Thanks for showing us your true colors. Much appreciated.

    The Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) is a group with one mission: to severely limit immigration into the United States. Although FAIR maintains a veneer of legitimacy that has allowed its principals to testify in Congress and lobby the federal government, this veneer hides much ugliness.

    FAIR leaders have ties to white supremacist groups and eugenicists and have made many racist statements. Its advertisements have been rejected because of racist content. FAIR’s founder, the late John Tanton, has expressed his wish that America remain a majority-white population: a goal to be achieved, presumably, by limiting the number of nonwhites who enter the country. One of the group’s main goals is upending the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965, which ended a decades-long, racist quota system that limited immigration mostly to northern Europeans. FAIR President Dan Stein has called the Act a “mistake.”

    IN THEIR OWN WORDS

    “Immigrants don’t come all church-loving, freedom-loving, God-fearing … Many of them hate America, hate everything that the United States stands for. Talk to some of these Central Americans.” – FAIR President Dan Stein, interviewed by Tucker Carlson, Oct. 2, 1997

    “Do we leave it to individuals to decide that they are the intelligent ones who should have more kids? And more troublesome, what about the less intelligent, who logically should have less? Who is going to break the bad news [to less intelligent individuals], and how will it be implemented?” – John Tanton, letter to eugenicist Robert K. Graham (now deceased), Sept. 18, 1996

    “I blame ninety-eight percent of responsibility for this country’s immigration crisis on Ted Kennedy and his political allies, who decided some time back in 1958, earlier perhaps, that immigration was a great way to retaliate against Anglo-Saxon dominance and hubris, and the immigration laws from the 1920s were just this symbol of that, and it’s a form of revengism, or revenge, that these forces continue to push the immigration policy that they know full well are [sic] creating chaos and will continue to create chaos down the line.” – FAIR President Dan Stein, "Oral History of the Federation for American Immigration Reform," interview of Dan Stein by John Tanton, August 1994

    “I’ve come to the point of view that for European-American society and culture to persist requires a European-American majority, and a clear one at that.” – John Tanton, letter to eugenicist and ecology professor Garrett Hardin (now deceased), Dec. 10, 1993

    “As Whites see their power and control over their lives declining, will they simply go quietly into the night? Or will there be an explosion?” – FAIR founder and board member John Tanton, Oct. 10, 1986

    On Oct. 9, 1988, the Arizona Republic published excerpts from embarrassing memos that had been sent by Tanton and Conner to members of FAIR’s leadership. The documents were known as the WITAN memos; they came from an October 1986 conference in which Tanton met with a number of anti-immigration activists for a strategy session. The memos revealed Tanton’s innermost, and controversial, thoughts. Tanton warned of a “Latin onslaught,” complained of Latinos’ allegedly low “educability.” He asked, “Will Latin American migrants bring with them the tradition of the mordida (bribe), the lack of involvement in public affairs, etc.?” He also wondered: “Can homo contraceptivus [meaning whites] compete with homo progenitiva [meaning Latinos] if borders aren’t controlled? Or is advice to limit ones [sic] family simply advice to move over and let someone else with greater reproductive powers occupy the space?”

    In the memos, Tanton, sounding much like the Klan of the 1920s, expressed concerns over the role of the Catholic Church in the United States. He worried that the church would capitalize on the Catholic faith of Latino immigrants to exert more political influence in the U.S. Specifically, he thought the church would try to subvert the division between church and state and limit abortion and birth control.

    Linda Chavez, then the executive director of another group founded by John Tanton and of which he was then president, U.S. English, resigned because of the memos, calling them “repugnant and not excusable” and “anti-Catholic and anti-Hispanic.” Several members of U.S. English’s board, including Walter Cronkite and Arnold Schwarzenegger, also quit the group, and Tanton resigned. But there was no fallout for Tanton with his colleagues at FAIR. There, Tanton was supported and a committee created to craft his defense for the incendiary comments in the WITAN memos.

    The memos were far from the sum of Tanton’s extremism. As reports by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) would document, Tanton had a lengthy record of friendly correspondence with Holocaust deniers, a former Klan lawyer and leading white nationalist thinkers, including Jared Taylor (who wrote in 2005, “When blacks are left entirely to their own devices, Western civilization – any kind of civilization – disappears”). On another occasion, Tanton wrote a major FAIR funder to suggest she read the work of radical antisemitic professor Kevin MacDonald – to “give you a new understanding of the Jewish outlook on life” – and suggested that the entire FAIR board discuss the man’s theories about the Jews. In a letter to FAIR board member Donald Collins, Tanton enthused over the work of John Trevor Sr. – a key architect of the bluntly racist Immigration Act of 1924 and a man who distributed pro-Nazi propaganda and warned shrilly of “diabolical Jewish control” of America – and said it should serve FAIR as “a guidepost to what we must follow again this time.”

    SAN DIEGO (AP) — A sharp drop in illegal border crossings since December could blunt a Republican point of attack against President Joe Biden as the Democratic leader moves to reshape a broken asylum system that has dogged him and his predecessors.


    You bet there's a sharp drop in border crossings. They're all here now! 
    Then why is everywhere still short staffed?
    Well they have a lot of work to do then to pay back the 150 billion they are costing us.

    one single line in that "article" negates virtually everything it asserts.

    "and their u.s. born children"

    not to mention the fact that the undocumented include those who overstay visas and that many , or I would argue most ,  of the remaining undocumented are requesting asylum. those who dont immediately turn themselves in to cpb benefit business by under the table wages or if business attempts to do it mostly on the level , pay onto all these systems and do not have a chance of it coming back.

    Oh so this is a game of "My source is better than your source". Well then I retract my statement. Illegal immigration is good and does not cost us anything. It only adds to the quality of our lives. My apologies.

    You mean the most trusted name in news is lying to me???  I just can't believe it. I better switch over to the other state run media sources so I can at least get equally lied to.  All news orgs are owned and sponsored by huge corporations who are going to always protect their interests and they just love when the people fight between ourselves so we don't focus on the actual "Big Lie" which is the government actually gives two shits about it's people. It's a big club my friend and we are not in it.

    Sounds great but, I mean, you specifically mentioned Tucker Carlson only a few weeks ago regarding the Jan 6th footage. But, sure!

    And, yeah, like Mick mentioned there are plenty of reputable sources that are not in the cable news lexicon. Avoid something like Brietbart like the plague though....at least for the sake of your phone or computer getting infected with a virus

    Fuck Fox News! I don't think you heard me Jose. All news orgs lie and distort the news to some extent at any given time. I watch several different news channels and web sites, both left and right leaning and then make up my own mind. Yes I gravitate to the more right leaning places because that is who I identify most with. You want to talk a bullshit news organization lets look at CNN. What a shit show that place is. I tune in to them for laughs. They don't know which of their newscasters are coming or going at any given time. Sheez!

    Boy you guys are some cherry picking sons of guns aren't you? I just said I watch multiple news sources so yes I do watch Tucker from time to time. Just because he may hate Trump doesn't mean he can't aptly defend him against the Washington establishment.

    Thanks for the advise Jose but I'll pass on NPR. I do listen to them from time to time but they do lean left so don't have them as a favorite.

I better switch over to the other state run media sources so I can at least get equally lied to.  All news orgs are owned and sponsored by huge corporations who are going to always protect their interests and they just love when the people fight between ourselves so we don't focus on the actual "Big Lie" which is the government actually gives two shits about it's people. It's a big club my friend and we are not in it.
    Faux just got exposed to how they manipulate its audience to believe total nonsense! Right wing media can’t be impartial news source they tried to be legit but just couldn’t so they decided to just feed their audience what they like bullshit news! 
    Fuck Fox News! I don't think you heard me Jose. All news orgs lie and distort the news to some extent at any given time. I watch several different news channels and web sites, both left and right leaning and then make up my own mind. Yes I gravitate to the more right leaning places because that is who I identify most with. You want to talk a bullshit news organization lets look at CNN. What a shit show that place is. I tune in to them for laughs. They don't know which of their newscasters are coming or going at any given time. Sheez! 
    It’s time you switch to non cable news NPR or some of the above that Mickey posted way more reputable I don’t watch CNN 
    Thanks for the advise Jose but I'll pass on NPR. I do listen to them from time to time but they do lean left so don't have them as a favorite.

    You specifically mentioned Tucker Carlson just a couple weeks ago because you were excited for his Jan 6 clips. Now you want us to believe you hate Fox News? Seems as if the dishonesty of the Fox hosts has rubbed off on their viewers. 
    Boy you guys are some cherry picking sons of guns aren't you? I just said I watch multiple news sources so yes I do watch Tucker from time to time. Just because he may hate Trump doesn't mean he can't aptly defend him against the Washington establishment. 
    He not only hates trump, despite saying the opposite on his show, he thinks the idea of the election being stolen from Trump was absurd. Yet he has peddled that blatant lie to you on a nightly basis for over 2 years now. Fox is not news. Plain and simple.

    The only thing Carlson does aptly is deceive his 3 million viewers every night. Him and the rest of the Fox hosts are nothing more than performance artists. Please stop watching that channel.

    SAN DIEGO (AP) — A sharp drop in illegal border crossings since December could blunt a Republican point of attack against President Joe Biden as the Democratic leader moves to reshape a broken asylum system that has dogged him and his predecessors.


    You bet there's a sharp drop in border crossings. They're all here now!

    Well there it is! The question of the week. You or someone else asked me this the other day but I didn't have time to properly respond so I  didn't as I knew what I said may be used against me in a court of law. Haha! I do believe Trump doesn't think Biden won. I think he thinks he won and that's why he is so adamant about it. 

    I realize this is a loaded question as if I say no then you are going to demand proof which I don't have but at the same time I don't need a weatherman to know if it is raining outside. Do I think a man who spent a lot of his campaign time in his basement and when he did try to organize a rally had 12 people show up but he got 81 million votes. Many millions more than Obama got on his best day. That seems like quite a stretch don't you think?

    I have had a few people tell me that 81 million people weren't voting for Biden as much as they were voting against Trump and if that is true then that brings us to the main reason the election was fraudulant: The mainstream media and the Washington establishment aka The Swamp for 4 years tried to unfairly smear President Trump with the many now known lies that they contrived such as Russian Collusion Hoax, The Ukraine Hoax, all of the lawsuits filed against him in New York etc. Not to mention what we knew all along and finally got validation with the Twitter files that the Feds colluded with social media to censor Trump and many conservatives to sway the election. This cannot be disputed if you have half a brain. They not only tried to suppress the majority of conservative Americans first amendment right of free speech but they also suppressed the Hunter Biden laptop which polls said could have easily swayed the election to Trump if it had gotten out. 

    Washington was asleep at the switch when Trump got elected as they never thought it could happen, hell they even tried to pump him up into running as they thought he would be an easy target for Hillary but they underestimated the American people. Of course the FBLie agency put an insurance plan in place by illegally spying on Trumps campaign and then formulated the Steele Dossier and the Russian Collusion Hoax which you guys may or may not know of based on all of those great and reputable news sources you listen to. 

    At the end of the day the majority of the Republican voters believe there was some type of fraud in the election and that is the travesty here. 
    Arguably the worst thing that can happen to a democratic society is to lose faith in their elections which is where we are today. 

    See you at the bar!

    I've never been to a political rally.  I'm guessing very few on this board have.  If that's the your barometer, well we're not in a cult.  We don't LOVE our candidate unconditionally.  

    Why do you think the media isn't supposed to be biased?  It's always been biased.  When this country formed, political parties had their own newspapers.  They were called 'organs'.  The WashPo is left, the NY Post is right.  MSNBC is left, Fox is right.  If that's your argument as to why the election was fraudulent, well that's pretty weak sauce.

    Get your news from better sources. 
    Oh so this is a game of "My source is better than your source". Well then I retract my statement. Illegal immigration is good and does not cost us anything. It only adds to the quality of our lives. My apologies. 
    TJ, MY MAN!

    One of your main "news" sources has admitted to lying to you each and every night. But, sure, continue to trust it. 
    I'm here Juggler! 

    You mean the most trusted name in news is lying to me???  I just can't believe it. I better switch over to the other state run media sources so I can at least get equally lied to.  All news orgs are owned and sponsored by huge corporations who are going to always protect their interests and they just love when the people fight between ourselves so we don't focus on the actual "Big Lie" which is the government actually gives two shits about it's people. It's a big club my friend and we are not in it.
    Faux just got exposed to how they manipulate its audience to believe total nonsense! Right wing media can’t be impartial news source they tried to be legit but just couldn’t so they decided to just feed their audience what they like bullshit news! 
    Fuck Fox News! I don't think you heard me Jose. All news orgs lie and distort the news to some extent at any given time. I watch several different news channels and web sites, both left and right leaning and then make up my own mind. Yes I gravitate to the more right leaning places because that is who I identify most with. You want to talk a bullshit news organization lets look at CNN. What a shit show that place is. I tune in to them for laughs. They don't know which of their newscasters are coming or going at any given time. Sheez! 
    It’s time you switch to non cable news NPR or some of the above that Mickey posted way more reputable I don’t watch CNN 
    Thanks for the advise Jose but I'll pass on NPR. I do listen to them from time to time but they do lean left so don't have them as a favorite. 
    Is President Brandon the honest and duly elected, fair and square, POTUS?
    Well there it is! The question of the week. You or someone else asked me this the other day but I didn't have time to properly respond so I  didn't as I knew what I said may be used against me in a court of law. Haha! I do believe Trump doesn't think Biden won. I think he thinks he won and that's why he is so adamant about it. 

    I realize this is a loaded question as if I say no then you are going to demand proof which I don't have but at the same time I don't need a weatherman to know if it is raining outside. Do I think a man who spent a lot of his campaign time in his basement and when he did try to organize a rally had 12 people show up but he got 81 million votes. Many millions more than Obama got on his best day. That seems like quite a stretch don't you think?

    I have had a few people tell me that 81 million people weren't voting for Biden as much as they were voting against Trump and if that is true then that brings us to the main reason the election was fraudulant: The mainstream media and the Washington establishment aka The Swamp for 4 years tried to unfairly smear President Trump with the many now known lies that they contrived such as Russian Collusion Hoax, The Ukraine Hoax, all of the lawsuits filed against him in New York etc. Not to mention what we knew all along and finally got validation with the Twitter files that the Feds colluded with social media to censor Trump and many conservatives to sway the election. This cannot be disputed if you have half a brain. They not only tried to suppress the majority of conservative Americans first amendment right of free speech but they also suppressed the Hunter Biden laptop which polls said could have easily swayed the election to Trump if it had gotten out. 

    Washington was asleep at the switch when Trump got elected as they never thought it could happen, hell they even tried to pump him up into running as they thought he would be an easy target for Hillary but they underestimated the American people. Of course the FBLie agency put an insurance plan in place by illegally spying on Trumps campaign and then formulated the Steele Dossier and the Russian Collusion Hoax which you guys may or may not know of based on all of those great and reputable news sources you listen to. 

    At the end of the day the majority of the Republican voters believe there was some type of fraud in the election and that is the travesty here. 
    Arguably the worst thing that can happen to a democratic society is to lose faith in their elections which is where we are today. 

    See you at the bar!  

    he didnt ask you what trump or anyone else thinks. he asked YOU.
