​​​​​​U.S. envoy to Haiti resigns over migrant deportations“I will not be associated with the United States inhumane, counterproductive decision to deport thousands of Haitian refugees and illegal immigrants to Haiti,” Daniel Foote wrote in a letter.
Republican's should be happy, they always complaining about illegal immigrants and stuff.

It really doesn't matter what Biden does.

He could stop heat resulting from climate change and one side or the other would complain of being too cold, or turn back hurricanes in the Gulf and they'd complain it wasn't windy and wet enough, it's what you get when you allow the 'news' media to govern policy.

It's a cultural thing. I like to watch Fox occasionally but find that I have to turn to CNN because I find the 'news' content too gutteral to be easy watching and I've no doubt that the Trump team find CNN much the same.

When faced with an intractable issue like illegal immigration across an indefensible land border those tasked with the job of holding back the tide will inevitably, like Canute, get their feet wet.

Like Biden, I don't know what the solution is, but it's one that'll taint his leadership legacy and the republicans will make sure of it, but that's their job and it's just one issue of many that's being used to drive a thicker and thicker wedge into the american public consciousness.

In the past we looked to the press to read our preferred version of the news over breakfast, or later in the pub, but it wasn't hammered into us every waking minute of the day. It's almost as though the nation has become indoctrinated into one or other politico-religeous cult having no real freedom of will but simply serving the intents of their chosen messiah, and these messiahs need to keep at it to generate the funding needed to keep them afloat.

It's a form of madness really. My wife and I discussed what might happen if one side or the other did arbitrarily nullify an election to their benefit, is the outcome as predictable as I think it would be.. civil strife?

Who would sensibly argue for such an outcome?

It seems to me that the lunatics have already taken over the asylum.

Odd that so many have been coming from Chile, a VWP country.

Big issue now is 5,000 are missing. Nobody seems to know where they have gone.

I used to watch Fox News sometimes for entertainment watching their talking heads get all out of breath and angry over silly things, they do at times make for good entertainment, although I would not take what they report as news, the CNN talkikng heads are not a huge improvement, and still more entertainment than news.

Just avoid the talking head entertainment style news.

Remember when CNN was just basically 24 news and not filled with entertainment like talking heads.

Our cable package makes it easy, Fox News costs extra so we don't get it as I am surely not paying extra for it, CNN is included but I think MSNBC is a paid add on.

You were ok with Trump's policies. So I take it you have now changed your mind?

I can't differentiate between Boiler and Susan Collins. Are they the same person?

That would explain the odd obsession with gender questions.

CNN just announced 30,000 more Haitians believed to be fleeing from Columbia. Chile Brazil mentioned but no numbers.

Rep Wilson being interviewed, she is pissed with Biden.

Is that Rep. Joe Wilson, a Republican? The same one who voted to overturn the election results after returning to the Capitol after the insurrection ended on Jan 6th.

How can he be pissed at someone almost his entire party and a large number of their supporters believe didn't win the election? Is he now accepting Biden did in fact win, and is President?

Laurence Fox, of all people, is going to play Hunter Biden.
Laurence Fox has bragged about being “uncancelled” after announcing his role as Joe Biden’s son in a forthcoming independent film.

The 43-year-old revealed the news of his casting via a Twitter post shared on Wednesday (22 September).

Fox will portray the US president’s son, Hunter Biden, in My Son Hunter. The film is the creation of conservative Irish documentary filmmakers Ann McElhinney and Phelim McAleer.

It seems it might please the MAGA crowd...

The Lewis star described the script as “brilliant, surreal and funny basically because it’s true”.

“The Hunter story fascinates me so much, especially the vigour with which the mainstream media continue to try and suppress it,” the actor claimed. He said he “couldn’t resist the offer to enter [Biden’s] world and tell his truth”.
