Today is September 27. Below are some of the stories grabbing headlines this morning. I hope you share this briefing as doing so will make you the smartest person in the room.
1 – Obama Claims Racism to Suppress American Opposition to Biden’s Deadly Migration
“Right now, the biggest fuel behind the Republican agenda is related to immigration and the fear that somehow America’s character is going to be changed if, people of darker shades, there are too many of them here,” Obama told a meeting of Hispanic realtors on September 25 in San Diego, California.
Obama used his divide-and-rule claims of racism to hide the public opposition to migration’s economic impact, according to his comments posted in a September 25 report by the San Diego Union-Tribune:
I wish I could be more euphemistic about it except [they’re] not that subtle about it — they’re just kind of saying it,” Obama said. “You hear it on hard-right media, you hear it from candidates and politicians, you hear things like ‘great replacement theory’ — I mean, this is not subtle. Unless we’re able to return to a more inclusive vision inside the Republican Party, it’s going to be hard to get a bill done.
Obama also argued that public opposition to mass migration is more dangerous than government support for the nation-changing migration that has killed thousands of migrants and many more Americans:
When you have that kind of rhetoric floating around out there, we’ve seen in history that is dangerous rhetoric. It’s dangerous wherever it appears and it’s dangerous here in the United States.
MY TAKE: The man who Americans overwhelmingly elected as the nation’s first Black president claims America is racist. What a disgusting joke!
2 – Americans to get another wallet punch this winter despite already high inflation
Families already dealing with increased costs due to inflation are expected to pay even more than last year, according to a recent report from the National Energy Assistance Directors Association (NEADA).
Earlier this month, the NEADA projected that the average cost to heat a home would increase by 17.2% since last winter, rising from $1,025 to $1,202. Heating oil costs will jump an estimated 54% to $1,876, while natural gas costs may increase 24% to $709, according to the NEADA.
Overall, the total cost of home heating, including natural gas, electricity, heating oil and propane, is estimated to jump from $127.9 billion to $149.9 billion this year.
MY TAKE: Welcome to Joe Biden’s America. 81 million people voted for this, remember?
3 – ISIS, citing Trump’s criticism of FBI raid, calls US a ‘banana republic’
Voice of Khurasan, a magazine published by ISIS’s Khorasan Province’s Al Azaim Foundation for Media Production, had an article in its latest issue titled “America from the Land of Free to a Banana Republic,” according to Homeland Security Today. It focused on Trump’s criticism of the raid to retrieve classified material that he took from the White House to his Florida home.
“Donald Trump, an ex-US president who gained animalistic pleasure in butchering innocent Muslims of the third world countries, accused their Federal administration of behaving like the corrupt thugs of the third world countries, when on August 8 the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) raided his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida in search of classified documents,” the magazine said.
The author of the piece used Trump’s frequent criticism, including exact quotes, of the raid and that of his children to demonstrate the U.S.’s supposed fall.
“This ex-president of the US condemned this raid: ‘An assault [that] could only take place in broken, third-world countries.’ He continued to decry that America has ‘now become one of those countries, corrupt at a level not seen before,’” the piece added. “Poverty, healthcare, and other indicators clearly suggest that US citizens are enjoying no better lifestyle than those of the ‘banana republics.’”
MY TAKE: Now even ISIS can see America is weakened by Biden.
4 – Vagrant seen pummeling woman in NYC subway station killed grandmother in the ’90s
The suspect, 41-year-old Waheed Foster, has a lengthy criminal history, including a bust for beating his grandmother to death in 1995 when he was just 14.
The elderly victim, Ariela Mascha, had 20 broken ribs, a stab wound in the leg and a punctured liver, police said at the time. The brutal attack was sparked by a fight about money, police said then. He was later convicted in her death, but it’s unclear how long he served.
He was living with his grandmother at the time of her death and confessed to killing her days after the fatal encounter when he was confronted by detectives about inconsistencies in his story, Newsday reported in 1995.
Last week, Foster allegedly launched at a woman after she ignored him on a train, police said Monday.
The attack happened just after 5 a.m. Sept. 20 as the 33-year-old victim tried to exit the northbound A train at the Howard Beach stop without engaging with the man, cops said.
MY TAKE: He should’ve been in jail for LIFE. Why was this thug ever released?
5 – Biden’s student debt forgiveness will cost taxpayers $400 BILLION over 10 years, non-partisan Congress office says: White House says announcement is ‘coming soon’ on massive cancelation plan
The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office noted in a letter to the Senate and House Labor committees noting the high cost of the president’s relief plan, as well as reporting the plan would cause outstanding student loans to increase by $20 billion.
In August, Biden announced his plan to cancel $10,000 in federal student loan debt for borrowers making less than $125,000 individually and $250,000 jointly. That forgiveness would rise to $20,000 for those with Pell Grants.
The White House now says that more guidance is coming that will provide more information on how borrowers can apply for their slice of the forgiveness.
Biden’s announcement included extending the repayment moratorium for a fifth and final time past the previous August deadline – and making it so that student loan payments will resume in January 2023 for the first time since the onset of the coronavirus pandemic in March 2020.
MY TAKE: Can Biden think of anymore ways to take money from Americans’ pockets? Oh, 81 million people voted for this, remember?
