Wednesday, FNC host Tucker Carlson dissected the new Biden administration’s approach to immigration policy and why it might be offering low estimates on the number of illegal immigrants within the country. The “Tucker Carlson Tonight” host speculated a process was underway by the White House to import as many Democratic voters as possible. Transcript as follows: CARLSON: Have you ever noticed how nobody in Washington can agree on a number? Now math is supposed to be objective except in Oregon where it is racist. But in the real world, you would think that people with functioning calculators could come to similar math-based conclusions once in a while, but not in D.C. Try getting a consensus on unemployment projections or consumer confidence levels from Members of Congress. You can’t even get a straight answer on how many troops will be occupying the Capitol three months from now and that’s something they directly control. Even allowing for the fact that most politicians … [Read more...] about Carlson: Point of Biden Immigration Policy ‘Is to Import as Many New Democratic Voters as Possible and There’s No Limit’

( CBS Detroit ) — A third stimulus check may be just weeks away. The $1,400 direct payment is an important part of the American Rescue Plan, President Biden’s $1.9 trillion economic relief package designed to help millions of Americans dealing with the economic fallout from COVID. It has support from both Democrats and Republicans and looks destined to end up in the bill’s final version. The package also includes higher unemployment benefits, an improved child tax credit, a $15 minimum wage, and more. While a third check seems destined for bank accounts, the specific timeline isn’t clear yet. When Could My Stimulus Check Arrive? The administration remains focused on signing the American Rescue Plan into law by March 14 . That is the day when the current $300 federal unemployment benefit bonus expires. Assuming President Biden can sign the relief package on March 14, direct deposits would likely start the week of March 22, with checks beginning to arrive the week of March 29. … [Read more...] about Third Stimulus Check: When Could You Get Another Economic Relief Payment?
NEW YORK (AP) — Home sales in Manhattan rebounded at the end of the year, but experts predict a weak recovery for the new year because the number of pending deals declined. Five housing reports released Tuesday painted a picture of a market that is emerging from a crisis that reshaped Wall Street and threw thousands out of work. Experts said the psychology of the market has changed, but the city’s 10 percent unemployment rate remains a risk. “There are a lot of unknowns in 2010,” said Jonathan Miller, president and chief executive of real estate appraisal and consulting firm Miller Samuel Inc. “It’s too early to call for a sharp housing recovery, but the worst is behind us.” In the last three months of 2009, sales of condominium and co-op units posted double-digit gains over the July-September period and were as much as 50 percent above year-ago levels, depending on the report. The median price fell about 5 percent from the third quarter to between $765,000 and … [Read more...] about Manhattan home sales rise in 4Q, but prices vary
Chinese dictator Xi Jinping announced Thursday that China had achieved “complete victory” against poverty, claiming not a single person among the nation’s 1.4 billion people was poor. Xi asserted that this meant the Communist Party had achieved its “first centenary goal” of creating a “moderately prosperous society” by 2021. The declaration — similar to a claim in November that China had defeated “extreme poverty” — follows a year in which China reached record levels of exports and greatly outperformed most world economies, in part due to the effects of the Chinese coronavirus pandemic. China also faced, however, significant threats to its food supply in the past year and water shortages in the nation’s south — threats that Beijing has not yet fully eradicated and that call into question the claim that not a single individual in China lived in poverty. The biggest threat to the nation’s food supply last year was extensive flooding in almost the entirety of the Chinese heartland, … [Read more...] about China Declares ‘Complete Victory’ Against Poverty amid Food Supply Concerns
