Joe Biden’s latest pandemic plan: At least $3,000 in cash to parents for every child

  Joe Biden’s latest pandemic plan: At least $3,000 in cash to parents for every child And make that $3,600 per year for kids 5 and younger.This plan, posted in an update to the tax proposals on Biden’s website, comes with a catch, though: Biden will only support the plan “for the duration of the crisis,” referring to Covid-19 and the associated economic downturn. In that respect, Biden is cribbing from the HEROES Act, House Democrats’ stimulus measure that proposed an identical expansion of the CTC but only for the year 2020. The HEROES Act has passed the House, but the Republican-run Senate and the White House have not acted on it.

In November last year Rawson was found in the street high on ice and trying to break into cars.

He was taken back to the Preston police station where he was charged and bailed, and afterwards put into a taxi.

But the cab had travelled just 150 metres when Rawson got out and made his way towards a boy and his father.

"You ran towards them and said, 'I'll help you down,'" the judge said.

"The man told you not to touch his child.

Rawson then seized the boy and ran, but not before being tackled by a bystander who managed to grab hold of his dressing gown.

He escaped but was later found hiding in a garden.

Victims attacked in what should have been 'a safe place'

Victoria's County Court heard Rawson, who has since written letters of apology to his victims, was probably in the grips of a drug-induced "psychotic state" which gave him delusions.

But Judge Hampel said that would have been little comfort to them.

"It was a terrifying experience for them and remains so, whether or not the father now knows that you had an impaired capacity to make reasoned judgments," the judge said.

She said both victims had lost their sense of safety and security.

"This was their neighbourhood. It was a safe place for them and clearly a time of family joy," she said.

Rawson turned to drugs after the breakdown of his marriage.

He was also convicted for assaulting and resisting a police officer after he was taken to hospital that night.

Rawson will have to serve at least two years and three months in prison before he is eligible for parole.

Trump’s ‘Peace Deal’ Fuels Orgy of Mideast Arms Sales Not Seen Since the Cold War .
JERUSALEM—In the lead-up to the signing of the Abraham Accords in Washington last week, President Donald Trump said that he would be open to sales of the advanced F-35 warplane to the “very wealthy countries” of the Gulf. The F-35, which costs around $80 million a plane, is one of the most expensive U.S. arms programs in history. The Trump administration, which has viewed many of its foreign policy accomplishments as a form of transaction, is supportive of pushing more U.S. arms sales in the wake of the U.S.-Bahrain-UAE deal. It is part of a much larger arms binge now taking place in the Middle East.
