(Continued from Part 1, An Odious Proposal.)
The Wall Street Journal article wants me to sign up to read it, so screw 'em, but this One Nation Blogger article Joe Biden Mulls $450K to Illegal Immigrants for Family Separation (and sorry for not providing the link last time) has some numbers. Depending on whether it's the Motherland Security or another branch of government, the ACLU, pissing and moaning about this separation of criminal families, there are either 2,800 or 5,500 children respectively, whose lucky lottery-winning parents should get nearly 1/2 a million bucks for each kid. In the grand scheme of Feral Gov't spending that's still peanuts, either $1.26 Billion or 2.48 Billion. Yeah, I mean it's only about 10% to 25% of what it would take to build a complete border barrier, which is still, like, peanuts. (Notice this free-spending administration** isn't even thinking about that.)
This proposed blowing of taxpayers money and rubbing it in the face of us taxpayers is setting a precedent though. Just as with the Feral Gov't's (Dept. of Justice) paying $80,000,000 to families with members shot by Dylann Roof in that Church in Charleston, SC, there's something different now. These monetary amounts are not being decided on in courts of law in civil trials. This is simply the Bai Dien administration flat out doling our money out on whims while Americans are struggling economically. Oh, sure, they have the excuse of a "faulty background check" for the latter and "Trump did this" for the former as reasons to just dole out settlements. This is complete bullshit, as anyone can see that this logic can be used to pay off anybody anytime, anywhere!
Secondly, more specifically, this latest illegal alien payout sets a precedent. Per Mr. Sailer's post's title, the incentive for more illegal families to get broken up like this and enter the country as millionaires - "we don't need to do no steeenking roofing, Senor!" - will guarantee that there will be more of this. There are hundreds of thousands of illegal entries per month now. The numbers could get up toward Trillion Dollar territory if the US Government regime deems it necessary. See, that's my question here. Are they purposefully trying to bankrupt the country?
I had thought the big idea was the replacement of the traditional American population. Don't get me wrong - that's been working swimmingly***. It looks like the US Gov't is making a concerted effort to go bankrupt at the same time.
You don't just go creating money in these huge amounts without prices of assets, goods and services going Sky High****. Since I missed out on that thread under the Steve Sailer post, I'll paste in a few comments from it here again. These ones relate specifically to the economic ruin that this Brazen Biden Border Bullshit will only exacerbate. One of my favorite commenters comes first:
Old Prude says:
This seems to a trend: Dump taxpayer dollars on the liberal pets: Illegals in NY State, the families of the victims of the Charleston church shooting, now criminal trespassers on the southern border. The one that really sets the teeth grinding is the cash being given to the family of the Afghan goat-herd zapped by Biden’s boys with the drone, so he could look like a hard-ass. “They will pay”.
Well guess what. A gaggle of incompetents in the intelligence community (but I repeat myself) targeted the wrong rag-head. So now who is paying? You and me, the middle class tax payer. And not only are we giving these wogs money, the government is going to bring them to our neighborhoods to crap up our communities. The jackasses who targeted the wrong family should be paying, but no: It’s you and me who had nothing whatsoever to do with this goat-rope. I hate this government.
Adept says:One of our Peak Stupidity commenters (also), PeterIke replies:
You have to laugh, I guess. This sort of payout would be a huge “fuck you” to middle America, and an accelerationist’s wet dream. It’s the sort of thing that won’t easily be forgiven or forgotten.
Regarding the expansion of this precedent-setting proposal:
Magic Dirt Resident says:
Why stop at families who were separated under Trump? Why not extend it farther back to include those who were deported under Eisenhower (and their descendants, of course)?
This is yet one more example of an egregious- quite frankly laughable- proposal by the dems against which I’m doubtful the republicans will be able to give a proper denouncement. At least no one can say the collapse of the American Empire hasn’t been entertaining. Show biz is what America does best, after all.
Dani says:Not quite about the bankruptcy aspect, but good points:
I feel exactly the same way and not ashamed to say so. I watch my 80 year old parents, who both worked full time their entire adult lives, having to fork over close to $700 a month for supplemental insurance coverage, and between Medicare and supplemental, vision and dental are not covered. I am sure millions have similar stories, and don’t even get me started on the homeless vets living in tents, the ones who haven’t blown their brains out yet.
(I left out the 2nd paragraph.)
Wilkey says:Finally, the commenter "Known Fact" is hopeful about a silver lining:
@Almost MissouriWhat’s really going on, of course, is that the current administration wants to make all actions of the previous administration appear to be illegitimate, as if they were crimes in need of remedy.Who are the law firms representing these poor victims? I saw the ACLU mentioned in at least one of the articles. How much of a cut will the law firms get? The usual 33%? So Biden could be handing over hundreds of millions to law firms politically allied with the administration, including the ACLU?
And how much of this money will ultimately end up in the hands of the human traffickers, as the recipients inevitably pay them to smuggle more of their relatives into the US? Ultimately tens or hundreds of millions of dollars will wind up in the hands of the very cartels that make Mexico so dangerous to begin with.
Known Fact says:When I mentioned Mexicans (or who knows, Haitians, Guatemalans, Hmong, I dunno?) coming in as millionaires, I did also want to point out that this may not mean that much, the way things are going. The Kung Flu PanicFest spending was no picnic, but this Biden and hard-left Congress seems to be purposefully killing the US dollar. That's going to hurt even the newcomers that they seem to love. Will it hurt the Globalist elite, themselves? Not if they put their currency into hard assets, here and around the world. If they are smart enough to be doing that, I guess they don't have a reason to care about the Dollar. I mean, that is, except for the being a Human Being thing and all...
I’m hoping this $450,000 thing is actually a clever sting operation — like when the feds advertise they’re giving away free stuff and idiots with outstanding warrants show up for some loot
As I went through these comments again, I see that I could pick out at least 10 excellent ones to describe how I feel about the Feral Gov't at this point and what we Americans ought to do, at least regarding the economic fall-out of free-spending-to-humiliate policies like this. That'll be in the 3rd part of this series.
The race is on. It's between a sooner than expected economic SHTF and population replacement to the point that most of the people are used to economic SHTF times from the shitholes they bolted from. Will there be many who still remember? I saw the lights go down on Broadway. I saw the ruins at my feet. You know I almost didn't notice it. We see it all the time, on 42nd street..."*****

** I know, I know, it's Congress that spends the money. That'd be in a Constitutional Republic, I mean ...
*** Or should I say "wadeingly" as in, across the Rio Grande. Not in the mood for humor? I understand completely.
**** For pop/Southern Rock aficionados, that post has the Jigsaw upbeat song, while this earlier post has the harder rockin' Atlanta Rhythm Section song from a live album. Both are pretty damn good.
***** That's from a Billy Joel Sci-Fi song expired last year. - nope, now 4 years back - Miami 2017, the hard-rockin' live version from Songs in the Attic.
