    “Psaki On Biden Keeping Migrant Kids In ‘Containers’ Versus ‘Cages’: ‘We Only Have A Couple Of Choices’

    “White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki avoided directly answering multiple questions from Fox News reporter Peter Doocy on Wednesday afternoon about the Biden administration’s decision to open detention facilities for children apprehended at the U.S. border while trying to enter the country.

    “We’ve seen some photos now of containers. Is there a better description?” Doocy asked. “Is it kids in containers instead of kids in cages? What is the the White House’s description of this facility?”

    “Well, let me give a broader description of what’s happening here,” she responded. “We have a number of unaccompanied minors, children who are coming into the country without their families, what we are not doing, what the last administration did, was separate those kids, rip them from the arms of their parents at the border, we are not doing that. That is immoral. And that is not the approach of this administration. These kids, we have a couple of options, we can send them back home and do a dangerous journey back, we are not doing that either. That is also putting them at risk.””

    Yeah so we let them stay with the unrelated and often abusive coyote human smuggler instead. That sounds so much safer for the kids. The only ones separated under Trump were ones where family ties with their escorts was in question. But they know this.

    “Every slander media flung at Florida’s DeSantis was true of Cuomo”

    “Throughout the pandemic, the media have been excoriatingly harsh on a governor who was slow to act, unnecessarily endangered the lives of the elderly, alienated experts and cooked the numbers.

    They just thought the governor in question was Florida’s Ron DeSantis, rather than New York’s Andrew Cuomo.

    After it has become clear that Cuomo’s handling of the pandemic was not just criminal in the metaphorical sense, but perhaps in the literal sense, the press has begun, only reluctantly and belatedly, to abandon its long-running Cuomo hagiography.

    It never made any sense to lionize Cuomo at the expense of DeSantis, except that one had a “D” after his name, and the other didn’t, and one hated President Donald Trump, and the other didn’t. The national media also labor under the assumption that New York must be competent, while the Sunshine State is the preserve of the embarrassingly boorish “Florida Man.”

    Finally, the media loved the way Cuomo talked about the pandemic at his take-charge news conferences. This was taken as the opposite of Trump’s approach, which it was — Cuomo talked a good game, while utterly botching the substance of the response, while Trump talked irresponsibly about the pandemic, while handling the substance pretty well (or, certainly, not as badly as advertised).

    All this meant that the press made both Cuomo and DeSantis into something they weren’t — a hero and a villain, respectively — when it should have been obvious all along that this wasn’t remotely justified.

    From the outset of the pandemic, New York has had the highest number of deaths of any state and still does (47,000), and the second-highest deaths-per-million of anywhere in the country. In contrast, Florida is right around the national average for deaths-per-million. Journalists brushed right by these top-line numbers in the interest of their tendentious narrative-building.

    They erupted in outrage when DeSantis was allegedly slow to close the beaches last March, but they didn’t dwell much on Cuomo saying, when the virus was already spreading throughout his state, “The facts defeat fear. Because the reality is reassuring.”

    They accused DeSantis of unnecessarily endangering seniors, when the Florida governor took steps to protect the nursing homes, and Cuomo, infamously, ordered nursing homes to accept COVID patients.

    They claimed DeSantis was rejecting the “science” by, among other things, pushing to reopen the schools, an approach that has proved out. Meanwhile, experts have fled the New York public-health bureaucracy in response to Cuomo’s high-handedness.

    They bought the bogus story of a Florida data manager who was supposedly persecuted for blowing the whistle on the state’s manipulation of its COVID numbers, when, of course, this is exactly what Cuomo was doing.

    And so the media’s anointed hero of the pandemic — who wrote a book on his own exemplary pandemic response, who won an Emmy, who was elevated to an authority with the standing to comment on how the country was handling the novel coronavirus — is facing calls to resign or face impeachment and is the subject of multiple investigations, while his routine bullying of critics is now out in the open.

    Not only are none of these things happening to DeSantis, his policy of avoiding strict lockdowns, which occasioned so much criticism, has avoided the educational and economic downsides of Cuomo’s approach. “

  4. Unfortunately, Dominion machines have great consequences.

    This administration is slowly dismantling the USA. Impeach Biden!

    https://www.theepochtimes.com/biden-revokes-7-trump-executive-orders-offers-no-explanation_3710425.html

    “President Joe Biden revoked seven executive orders on Feb. 24 issued by President Donald Trump between 2017 and 2021. The White House offered no explanation for the revocation in its formal press release.

    Biden’s action revoked one of the first executive actions Trump signed upon taking office—an executive order titled Core Principles for Regulating the United States Financial System. The order set out the Trump administration’s policy on financial regulation, with the first listed goal to “empower Americans to make independent financial decisions and informed choices in the marketplace, save for retirement, and build individual wealth.”

    The policy also sought to “prevent taxpayer-funded bailouts” and to “enable American companies to be competitive with foreign firms in domestic and foreign markets,” among other priorities.

    Biden also sacked an April 2018 executive order titled “Reducing Poverty in America by Promoting Opportunity and Economic Mobility.” Trump’s order directed the federal government to reform the welfare system around a set of core principles, including improving economic independence, targeting benefits for people with low incomes, and reducing “wasteful spending by consolidating or eliminating federal programs that are duplicative or ineffective.”

    The Biden administration also axed a presidential memo that unshackled the Department of Defense from collective bargaining constraints in order to give the military maximum flexibility “to cultivate a lethal, agile force adaptive to new technologies and posture changes.”

    The list of revocations also includes a COVID-19 executive order Trump issued that directed federal agencies to address the economic repercussions of the pandemic by “rescinding, modifying, waiving, or providing exemptions from regulations” which could imperil economic recovery. Another canceled Trump memorandum had directed the federal government to review funding for localities like Seattle, which took a lax stance on anarchy and riots during the summer and fall of 2020.”

  5. I guess they wanted to hear it directly from those committing it.

  6. Once again Biden puts the mentally ill in positions of power.

    This is disgusting. This fraud’s responsible for killing 1000’s of nursing home residents in PA, after removing his own mother from one, along with the Gov.

  8. That was hilarious. In a sad pathetic sort of way. What a poor quality evasion of the question. Totally lacking in nuance and finesse.
