The Joe Biden administration said Monday it will begin disbursing the monthly payments to families as a result of the child tax credit increase authorized in the recently enacted the American Families Plan.

The money will starting July 15 go to low-and-moderate-income families – $250 a month for each child over 6 or $300 for each child under 6.

“The American Rescue Plan is delivering critical tax relief to middle class and hard-pressed working families with children,” said Biden, according to The Hill. “With today’s announcement, about 90% of families with children will get this new tax relief automatically.”

Roughly 39 million households, covering 88% of children in the U.S., will receive the monthly payments. The payments will be calculated based on the taxpayer’s 2020 tax returns.

The $1.9 trillion American Families Plan was in March passed by Congress and signed into law. The packages extended the tax credit, increased the number of eligible families to receive aid and provided half of the funds for the monthly payments through December.

Biden says he is ‘very confident’ of Fauci amid coronavirus email controversy

Published

on


President Joe Biden on Friday expressed continued support for White House coronavirus adviser Anthony Fauci, declining to sideline the longtime federal official amid newly released emails that have called into question Fauci’s handling of the SARS-Cov-2 epidemic. 

“Yes, I’m very confident in Dr. Fauci,” Biden said in Delaware when asked for his opinion on Friday. 

The show of support comes as thousands of pages of Fauci’s emails were obtained and released by news and advocacy groups this week. The emails, which detail the doctor’s management of the earliest days and months of the COVID-19 pandemic in the U.S., have raised questions of potential conflicts of interest along with uncertainty surrounding heavily redacted exchanges between Fauci and several notable disease experts. 

Fauci has headed the federal National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases for decades. He is currently the highest-paid federal employee, making over $400,000 per year.

Aides unloaded on Joe Biden for going off script, email to son Hunter shows

Published

on

President Joe Biden has never been accused of having a gilded tongue. In fact, he once referred to himself as a “gaffe machine.”

But after a meandering speech in summer 2015, his top aides let loose their frustrations in a private communication to the then-vice president’s son Hunter.

“He just couldn’t end the speech,” senior White House aide Gregory Schultz exclaimed to the VP’s youngest son, in apparent disbelief.

The newly surfaced email, recovered by Just the News from a laptop Hunter Biden left behind at a Delaware repair shop and later turned over to the FBI, provides a rare glimpse into the Biden inner circle’s efforts to corral the oft-bumbling, gaffe-prone speechmaker.

“He went off script almost every 2 to 3 paragraphs, and did all the self-referential stuff we cut out,” Biden speech writer Vinay Reddy wrote in frustration, attaching the final transcript of Joe Biden’s July 16, 2016 speech to the Generation Progress annual convention in Washington D.C.

Reddy appeared to be particularly concerned that the vice president had ad-libbed remarks slamming Democrats for their reliance on dark money, just as the 2016 presidential race was heating up.

“This speech was pretty much everywhere, including why the Democratic Party should look to itself in curbing dark money ‘not that I am talking about any particular person,'” Reddy lamented.

The email string also reveals that Hunter Biden — struggling with drug addiction, a crumbling marriage and a Ukraine business controversy — apparently weighed in on his father’s speech draft.

“Hey Hunter — I know you were involved on this a little bit — so wanted to pass along from Vinay (speech writer),” Schultz wrote the Biden son. “Went great……and then he just couldn’t end the speech.”

Biden’s rhetorical ad-libbing continues to get him in trouble, even now as the 46th president.

He was sharply criticized late last month for “creepy” comments during a Memorial Day weekend speech where he went off script to make comments about the 7-year-old daughter of a veteran.

“I love those barrettes in your hair,” Biden said to the child in the audience. “Man, I’ll tell you what, look at her. She looks like she’s 19 years old sitting there like a little lady with her legs crossed.”

Here are four of President Biden’s more historically infamous speaking moments:

  • The 1987 attack on a New Hampshire voter. “I probably have a much higher IQ than you do, I suspect,” Biden barked as he rattled off an academic record that, reporters later found, was mostly contrived, including an instance of plagiarism.
  • The 7-Eleven joke. Biden was lambasted in 2006 by American-Indian groups after he took a stab at ethnic humor, stereotyping Indo-Americans in a “joke” that backfired politically. “You cannot go to a 7-Eleven or a Dunkin’ Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent. And I’m not joking!” he declared.
  • Called troops “stupid bastards” and “dull.” Biden raised eyebrows worldwide when during a 2016 speech with U.S. troops stationed in Abu Dhabi he became peeved they did not embrace one of his jokes. “Clap for that, you stupid bastards,” the vice-president commanded. “… Man, you are a dull bunch.”
  • Derided Iowa voter as “fat” and a “damn liar.” When an Iowa voter challenged him on the trail in 2019, Biden let loose with a tirade. “You’re a damn liar, man,” Biden snapped at Merle Gorman “And by the way, I’m not sedentary. Let’s do push-ups together, man, let’s run, let’s do whatever you want to do. Let’s take an IQ test, all right?”

Biden administration, House Democrats reach deal on ex-Trump lawyer McGahn testimony on Russia probe

Published

on

House Democrats and the Biden administration have reached a deal that would allow former President Trump attorney Donald McGahn to testify before Congress on allegations Trump tried to obstruct the 2019 Russia collusion investigation.

The sides reached the deal late Tuesday, after months of negotiating, according to The New York Times.

McGahn has been in a legal battle against a House subpoena to compel him to testify regarding special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into whether the 2016 Trump presidential campaign colluded with Russia to influence the outcome of the election.

An appeals court was set to hear arguments next week, but lawyers from the Justice Department sent a letter asking the case to be dismissed due to the recent deal.

However, whether McGhan will testify following the deal, which did not involve Trump, remains unclear.

The Biden administration has been wary about attempting to force a former White House lawyer to testify in front of Congress. Currently, the president has the constitutional power to keep secret conversations with a lawyer.

Officials worry the move could be used to force them to testify should Republicans regain the White House and Congress.
