U01: Ronald Reagan and the Federal Deinstitutionalization of Mentally Ill Patients

Ronald Reagan, the 40th president of the United States, is well known for his fiscal policies that stimulated economic growth, cut inflation and pulled America out of a recession (Cannon, 2017). What Reagan is not readily known for is the long term effect of a law he repealed that essentially deinstitutionalized mentally ill patients at the federal level (Roberts, 2013). While some of his fiscal policies had a positive effect on the U.S. economy during the 1980s, his decision to deinstitutionalize mentally ill patients had a much more deleterious effect on these patients, their communities, and the agencies that were left to contend with these individuals’ mental health issues (Honberg, 2015).

The Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act (OBRA) is the statute that repealed President Carter’s Mental Health Systems Act which was supposed to continue federal funding for mental health programs. Reagan gave the appearance of making a consequentialist ethical decision because he presented his repeal of OBRA as an action that would best serve American society and do more good than harm as a result. The OBRA gave mental patients a choice to seek treatment outside of a mental institution, an option to seek treatment at clinics at the state level, and the freedom to administer their own medication (PSY533, 2017) (Pan, 2013). However, Reagan was hasty in taking unsound advice to repeal OBRA because his real motive was to cut the federal budget (Roberts, 2013). He was a leader who “never exhibited any interest in the need for research or better treatment for serious mental illness” (Torrey, 2017).

To be an ethical leader, one must attempt to gather as much knowledge as possible when making decisions, especially if one has the power to affect so many lives (Toffler, 2009). The mentally ill are amongst the most vulnerable populations in society because most are unable to make sound decisions regarding their own care due to their mental state. The consequences of Reagan’s social policy can be measured by the fact that today one-third of the homeless population are suffering from severe mental illness which puts a burden on police departments, hospitals and the penal system which lack the training and resources to deal with psychiatric emergencies (Honberg, 2015). Reagan’s unethical choice to end federal funding for mental health programs was driven by the desire to cut the budget. As a result, he did much more harm than good (PSY533, 2017).

Biden Giving Federal Employees Paid Leave to Help Border Crossers


A report by the New York Times this weekend alleges the Biden administration is sending emails to federal employees asking them to take paid leave to help care for UACs who are arriving by the thousands every month.

The Times reports:

The desperate plea landed this week in the email inboxes of employees in government agencies like the Department of Homeland Security and NASA: Will you consider taking a four-month paid leave from your job to help care for migrant children in government-run shelters packed with new arrivals at the border? [Emphasis added]

A briefing memo sent to administration officials this week directed the health department to “identify and deploy all available federal volunteers to support” the effort to address the increase of minors, a drive reflected by the email seeking government workers to help. As of Friday, 2,722 employees across the government have volunteered, in most cases with their salaries being picked up by the health department. Some are caring for children at shelters. Others are helping with case management, I.T. services, food delivery, transportation and other logistics. [Emphasis added]

Biden's 'Made in America' electric vehicle push to benefit China


“I’m proposing a plan for the nation that … will grow the economy, make us more competitive around the world, promote our national security interests and put us in a position to win the global competition with China in the upcoming years,” Mr. Biden said recently.

But instead of putting the communist superpower on notice, the administration’s embrace of electric vehicles would benefit China, experts say.

“At the moment, Beijing leads every other country in the production of electric vehicle batteries,” said Dan Kish, a senior fellow at the Institute for Energy Research. “They control the resources and the technology that U.S. automakers will need to import in abundance to make electric cars a viable alternative” to gas-powered engines.

China produced 72% of the world’s lithium-ion rechargeable batteries in 2019, and the U.S. accounted for 9%. The batteries are used most frequently to power electric vehicles, according to the Energy Department.

The Chinese regime’s dominance is the result of long-range investment and planning.

Energy Sec Admits Biden Team Won't Go by 'Past Definitions' of Infrastructure


Joe Biden’s folks have truly embarked on an Orwellian effort.

They’re literally changing the meaning of words to fit their agenda.

[clip]

Listen to what Biden is now claiming is “infrastructure.” Words have no meaning anymore with these characters.





Of course, he’s reading again, so he doesn’t have to think for himself. But no, that’s not infrastructure.

The Oxford Dictionary notes that infrastructure is “the basic systems and services that are necessary for a country or an organization to run smoothly, for example buildings, transport and water and power supplies.” It isn’t whatever the Democrats want to make it be to ensure their power.

Biden Administration Returns to Trump-Era Policy of Central American Agreement to Secure Honduras and Guatemala Border


After taking apart the Trump agreement with central American nations (Honduras, Guatemala, El Salvador) to secure their own northern border the mass migration toward the United States began…. a crisis created. However, once the crisis turns public opinion against them, the JoeBama administration then proposes to return to the exact same policy President Trump initiated and Biden destroyed.

The White House and the media then herald the return of the Trump agreement as a groundbreaking new policy initiative instituted by JoeBama. It would be funny, if it were not so ridiculous to watch it in real time.

Biden Administration Withhold $150 Million of Ukraine Aid Until Ukraine Government Reform – Exact Process Democrats Impeached Trump For


Yes, as you read the following report from OANN, you would not be mistaken to identify the JoeBama administration is now doing exactly the same thing President Trump was accused of, wrongfully, which led to the a ridiculous impeachment effort.

Meanwhile Russian President Vladimir Putin is laughing hysterically….

OANN – Joe Biden is withholding military aid from Ukraine that had already been approved by Congress in the face of Russian military maneuvers at its borders.

The crazy thing is that it isn't Biden doing all of this stupid sht.
Yes---------------------he is taking the rap for it, but in reality it is the Wizard of Oz behind the curtain that is running things.
Who is this wizard or wizards. IMO it is Obamaladingdong. and his Administration of yesteryear, still working hard to destroy America.

Of course lets not forget the rest of the Democrats who are going along for the ride.

Number Of Migrant Children In Border Patrol Custody Drops 45% As Biden Admin Transfers Kids To HHS


At one point, CBP had custody of nearly 6,000 unaccompanied minor children who crossed the United States-Mexico border without parents or relatives and we either captured or presented themselves to border patrol agents seeking asylum. Now, CNN reports, CBP has just 3,400 children in border detention facilities, with the rest having transferred to one of the dozens of temporary holding facilities across the country.

Overall, however, the United States government is still responsible for approximately 18,027 unaccompanied minors, many of whom have been in custody for far longer than the 72-hour limit set by immigration courts.

“The number of unaccompanied minors in US Customs and Border Protection custody, akin to jail-like conditions, has dropped 45%, according to the latest government data, amid an ongoing effort by the Biden administration to find suitable spaces to accommodate kids after facing scrutiny for overcrowded facilities,” CNN reported Tuesday. “As of Sunday, there were 3,130 children in the custody of CBP, an agency not intended to care for children for prolonged periods of time, marking a drop from the peak — 5,767 on March 28 — since the government started providing data, indicating progress in alleviating Border Patrol stations.”

Biden Admin Claimed It Inked Deal With Guatemala To Increase Border Security. Guatemala Says It Never Signed.

The Hill notes that White House Domestic Policy Council aide Tyler Moran repeated the claim in an interview with MSNBC earlier this week, claiming that the administration had “secured agreements for [the three countries] to put more troops on their own border. Mexico, Honduras, and Guatemala have all agreed to do this. That not only is going to prevent the traffickers, and the smugglers, and cartels that take advantage of the kids on their way here, but also to protect those children.”

Guatemala’s government, though, said in a statement Tuesday that it did not negotiate or sign an agreement with the Biden administration and that it moved troops to its border months ago, in January.

Biden’s UN Ambassador: ‘White Supremacy’ In America’s ‘Founding Documents And Principles’

President Biden’s UN Ambassador, Linda Thomas-Greenfield, told the National Action Network, founded by the Rev. Al Sharpton, that “the original sin of slavery weaved white supremacy into our founding documents and principles.” She also championed Black Lives Matter, saying, “I remain hopeful in part because of the influence and the insistence of organizations like yours. Just look at the way [the] Black Lives Matter movement spread this past summer.”

Saying it was “so important to engage on a global scale,” Thomas-Greenfield called for “recommitting to multilateral institutions”:

If we go it alone and retreat from the world, then we let existing inequalities fester. But if we engage, then we can push for change and demand justice. That’s why under President Biden’s leadership, we’ve been restoring our alliances and recommitting to multilateral institutions. We rejoined the World Health Organization because we believed we can make the WHO smarter, nimbler, and more just by rolling up our sleeves and getting involved. We proudly rejoined the Paris Agreement because the only way to reverse the effects of the climate crisis is to join forces. And we know that if we don’t act, poor communities and communities of color, especially in the Global South, will suffer the most. And we immediately [reengaged] with the UN Human Rights Council and have announced our intention to seek election to that body so that we can advance our most cherished democratic values around the globe.

Kristen Clarke Is Unfit to Be in Government



Kristen Clarke, Joe Biden’s nominee for assistant attorney general of the United States, once promoted racist pseudoscientific quackery, arguing that the human brain was structured in a way that makes black people superior to white people, and that “human mental processes” in the brain have chemicals that imbue one race with “superior physical and mental abilities” and “spiritual abilities.”

Rather than owning up to a youthful relationship with radicalism, Clarke, who made these comments in the Harvard Crimson as a 19-year-old, claims that her racist diatribe was a merely a parody mocking the controversial book, “The Bell Curve.” “What I was …

Beware Biden’s Ghost-Gun Protocol

Thing is, the difference between a finished receiver and an “80 percent complete” receiver is small. Here, in visual form, is the ATF’s own explanation of the distinction:


In essence, the difference here is whether the receiver has “holes.” Indeed, as the ATF explains, “receiver blanks, ‘castings’ or ‘machined bodies’ in which the fire-control cavity area is completely solid and un-machined have not reached the ‘stage of manufacture’ which would result in the classification of a firearm per the GCA.” Why? Because in one case, the receiver is capable of being attached to other parts, and in the other it is not.


Advocates of stricter gun control will presumably look at these photographs and say, “Okay, so change the regulations.” Which, of course, is exactly what Biden hopes to do. But at some point, the attempt to tighten up what the federal government classes as “a gun” becomes absurd. How different, one must ask, would an “incomplete” lower receiver need to be before it was exempted from the rules? That’s a serious question, and, given that the federal government is presumably not going to start adding serial numbers to any commercially available rectangular block of metal that could in theory be machined into a different shape, it requires a serious answer. Is there one?

Biden’s essential problem is that he is attempting to use a set of federal laws that were passed solely to regulate commerce as a pretext to regulate noncommercial activity. The 1968 Gun Control Act, on which the ATF’s rules are primarily based, makes no mention of homemade weapons beyond noting that its terms apply only to those who are “engaged in the business” of manufacturing and selling firearms. As it stands, Americans who wish to manufacture weapons for sale or distribution need to obtain a federal license before they may do so, while those who are engaged in noncommercial production that affects nobody outside of themselves are permitted to do as they wish — yes, even if they buy key materials from commercial dealers across state lines. Writing in the Times recently, Gail Collins asked “how the founding fathers would have felt about the right to bear arms if they knew their nastiest neighbor had just installed a printer that manufactures guns in his basement.” But we know how they felt about forging firearms — and, indeed, we know how subsequent generations felt about it — because for all of American history has it been legal to do precisely that. It still is today.

The Center for Immigration Studies, a think tank that supports low immigration whose writer was reporting from Del Rio, Texas, said in March that buses departing from Texas “often drop their Haitian, Venezuelan, and Cuban passengers in Florida and New Jersey. Those from Nicaragua and other Central American nations have been delivered to Tennessee, Massachusetts, Indiana, Michigan, North Carolina, Georgia, Kentucky, and to large cities in Texas such as Dallas and Houston.”

The report was called “Catch and Bus.”

If the Joe Biden administration had its way, destinations would include well into the American heartland. Earlier this month, Iowa governor Kim Reynolds, a Republican, said that she refused a request from the federal government to transport migrant children to the state, calling it “the president’s problem.”

Biden Quotes ‘Holy Qur’an’ in Ramadan Greeting, says ‘Muslim Americans Have Enriched Our Country Since Our Founding’


And there it is again: “Muslim Americans have enriched our country since our founding.” State Department wonk Ned Price recently said this as well, claiming that Arab-Americans’ contributions to the US “are as old as America itself.” Obama started this particular ball rolling, claiming in 2016 that “Islam has always been part of America. Starting in colonial times, many of the slaves brought here from Africa were Muslim. And even in their bondage, some kept their faith alive. A few even won their freedom and became known to many Americans.”

Repetition won’t make this claim true. The claim that the slaves were Muslims, or a significant percentage of them were Muslims, is increasingly common. In fact, however, this is unlikely, as the African slavers were Muslims, and a Muslim generally does not enslave a fellow Muslim, just the Qur’an’s prohibits a Muslim from killing another Muslim (4:92). (There are Muslims who are born into slavery in countries such as Mauritania, but that is a different phenomenon from capturing and enslaving someone.)

And who were these other Muslims who have enriched America since its founding? In his 2016 speech, Obama offered two examples besides his claim about the slaves: “Muslim Americans worked on Henry Ford’s assembly line, cranking out cars. A Muslim American designed the skyscrapers of Chicago.”
