News and commentary about President* Joe Biden

Introduction by The Editor:
The news media declared Joe Biden to be the winner of the 2020 presidential election on November 4th, long before any state had so certified.  Then the Biden handlers set up the fictitious "Office of the President Elect" for his television appearances, to promote the perception that he actually won fair and square.  Officially, there is no such office.  There is nothing magical about any president's "First 100 Days" in office, yet that's all the news media could talk about in January.  One might be tempted to ask, What's the rush?  Indeed, Joe Biden is now acting like a dictator, just like Barack H. Obama, issuing dozens of unilateral decrees, in the form of executive orders, the purpose of which is to legislate from the White House all the policies that the Congress wouldn't be able to pass, and immediately implement the Democrats' socialist platform.  But Joe Biden is just a puppet:  He is a senile old man who will sign anything his handlers tell him to sign.  He will read whatever words come up on the teleprompter, just like Barack H. Obama.  He is apparently trying to weaken America's economy, just like Barack H. Obama.  The national news media are doing everything possible to portray Joe Biden in a positive light, just as they did for Barack H. Obama.  The Biden presidency is starting to look like Obama's third term.

The biggest mystery in America today is this:  Who is running the Executive Branch of the federal government? This is an original compilation, Copyright © 2021 by Andrew K. Dart

Yet another note from The Editor:
Perhaps I should apologize, or boast, that this page has turned into a four-megabyte heap of text related directly to Joe Biden.  Unlike the multiple pages of news and commentary about Barack H. Obama, no attempt has (yet) been made to sub-categorize articles about Biden's unwise decisions, mental state, cloud of corruption, or other topics — with the exception of his favorable treatment by the press, and his long list of objectionable appointments.  Use the "Find" function in your browser to get to a specific subject.

Obama's Former Defense Secretary Slams Biden on Foreign Policy, Praises Trump on China.  China's been making some very bold moves as of late and there's little doubt that it has to do with President Joe Biden's milquetoast position when it comes to dealing with the communist nation.  It's a take that former Obama Defense Secretary Robert Gates thinks Biden is getting very wrong, and something that Trump got very right.  Gates appeared on CBS's "60 Minutes" in an interview with Anderson Cooper where he had nice things to say about Biden's "integrity" but didn't softball it about the president's foreign policy decisions, especially on China.  "I think he's gotten a lot wrong," Gates said, making it clear he wasn't just talking about Biden's years as president either.

Biden Can't Even Honor America's Fallen Without Reducing Himself to Hyperbolic Political Nonsense.  President Biden in a Saturday speech at the U.S. Capitol, in which he honored law enforcement officers who died in the line of duty in 2019 and 2020, said "being a cop today is [...] a lot harder than it's ever been," while also saluting the brave men and women who currently serve. [...] It should be noted that Biden's assertion that being a law enforcement officer in America today is not only a lot harder than it's ever been; it's also far more dangerous.  And, of course, Biden came nowhere near explaining why it's more dangerous and predominantly made more dangerous by whom.  But what Biden did make sure he said was nothing short of blatant political expediency: he busted out the Jan. 6 breach of the U.S. Capitol building with this hyperbolic stretch: [...]

Biden is about to drive us off an economic cliff.  It is difficult to imagine a worse time for massive increases in taxes and spending, yet that's exactly what Democrats in Washington, D.C. have in mind.  We are all aware that, as Press Secretary Jen Psaki stated this week, President Joe Biden views the COVID-19 pandemic as an opportunity to "make fundamental changes in our economy."  But the changes he has in mind are about to drive us over an economic cliff.  Businesses of all sizes are already being buffeted by seemingly intractable supply chain constraints, along with labor shortages, and unusually high consumer demand — all driven by pandemic-lockdown conditions that are only going to cause prices to soar as we get closer to Christmas.  It doesn't take a Ph.D. in economics to recognize that restricted supply coupled with enhanced demand is a recipe for inflation, which has already been rising at a worrying rate for several months.

Hypocritical Joe Biden on 'Date Night'.  It's harder to get more hypocritical than [Joe] Biden, who has spent most of the past nine months preaching at Americans over wearing masks and getting vaccinated.  Even after he signed an executive order mandating wearing masks on federal property, he and his family violated it almost immediately, right after he signed it.  His wearing of a mask, while he demands it of others has often been hit or miss.  As we noted during his visit to Connecticut, he didn't have it on, put it on, and then took it off again.  But last night [10/16/2021], he got busted violating the D.C. mask mandate, which was put in place by his fellow Democrat Mayor Muriel Bowser in July.  Since July 31, all people over age 2 are supposed to be wearing a mask indoors in any business open to the public, including restaurants.

Biden And His Wife Walk Through High Class DC Restaurant Without Masks, Breaking DC Mandates.  This is what it looks like when the elite laugh at the rules they give to the peasants.  Joe and Jill Biden showed up maskless at Fiola Mare in Georgetown Saturday evening [10/16/2021].  [Video clip]

You will never guess what's topping iTune's hip-hop chart.  In just a few months in office, this utterly incompetent man [Joe Biden] has already managed to harm America very badly.  He has opened the southern border to millions of immigrants, instituted "green" policies that have sent the price of gas skyrocketing, and presided over policies boosting inflation is at levels not seen in decades (and promising to rise higher).  Worse even than these practical steps towards damaging America, Biden is in the process of outlawing half the nation over both factual and ideological ideology about vaccines.  He is effectively overseeing America's balkanization.  Then, to top this all off, he has presided over the destruction of the supply chain so that shelves will probably be bare for Christmas.  Moreover, given that the supply chain is an immensely complicated, interconnected entity that stretches around the world and across the length and breadth of America, there's no reason to believe that shelves will be any fuller after Christmas.

The late show, with Joe Biden:  The president on average is more than 20 minutes tardy for his events.  Wednesday at 2:58 pm, President Biden took to the podium in the East Room and began remarks on supply chain bottlenecks that are causing shortages of consumer goods and threatening to make Christmas gifts late.  What Biden did not address is whatever bottleneck it was that caused him to be 38 minutes late for his 2:20 pm event.  Nor did he apologize for keeping everyone waiting.  Perhaps he felt there was no need, because this is to be expected.  From June 1 through the end of last week, Biden was an average of 22.4 minutes late for his publicly scheduled events, according to a Fox News tally.  He sometimes keeps his audiences waiting an hour or more.

The Editor says...
Chronic tardiness is a sure sign of dishonesty and deceptiveness.  It is a serious character flaw.

Joe Biden was brought to you in part by the "never-Trump" National Review, which now says...
Joe Biden Is a Threat to the Constitution.  As president, Joe Biden is who he was as a candidate, and who he was as a vice president, and who he was as a U.S. senator before that.  He's a fraud.  President Biden is not good ol' folksy Joe.  He's not a political moderate.  He's not a defender of the American system of government.  He's a chameleon, whose only loyalties are to himself, to his party, and to wherever the loudest voices on the American left happen to be at any given time.  We are now nine months into Joe Biden's presidency, and he has already revealed himself to represent a substantial threat to the Constitution.

President Biden Falls Asleep at Nephew's Wedding, Wakes Up and Demands a Sandwich.  According to conservative journalist Jack Posobiec, President Joe Biden allegedly fell asleep at his nephew's wedding with his "chin to chest."  After he was awaken, Biden then demanded a sandwich from Capriotti's.  "Biden fell completely asleep 'chin-to-chest' at his nephew's wedding on Monday and when staff woke him up he would only eat a sandwich from Capriotti's, per Pennsylvania worker at the event," Posobiec reported.  "Asleep thru entire ceremony, and kept nodding off during reception," the source told Posobiec.  "Jill takes a stern, caretaker tone with him when he's groggy.  He decided he wasn't going to eat what the chef had prepared and only wanted capriottis."

The Traits of the Authoritarians Among Us.  There are two irrefutable and intertwined realities of authoritarianism that the citizens of any democratic nation must recognize and understand.  First, any political party that espouses ever greater power for the central government, socialist-centric economic policies and continual erosion of individual freedom is an existential threat to the nation.  Second, the leaders of these political parties and their disciples will lie incessantly and, under no circumstances, will they alter their policies or tactics, as they can never be wrong in their pursuit of unbridled political power. [...] Joe Biden, a life-long pathological liar, will never acknowledge that his Afghanistan withdrawal was an unmitigated disaster because he sincerely believes that it was not, as he achieved his goal of getting out of Afghanistan.  Biden and the Democrats are unconcerned about the cratering economy brought about by unbridled government spending, money creation, and inflation, as they believe it is an inconvenient by-product of their unerring vision of a quasi-socialist economy.

Psaki says Biden owing $500K to IRS was 'debunked' — experts disagree.  White House press secretary Jen Psaki on Tuesday [10/12/2021] claimed allegations that President Biden owes as much as $500,000 in unpaid Medicare taxes have been "debunked" — despite experts saying otherwise.  The issue re-emerged last month when Republicans accused Biden of hypocritically pushing for other wealthy people to pay their "fair share" to fund new social spending.  Psaki grew visibly annoyed when asked about the issue by The [New York] Post at her daily press briefing and cut off the line of questioning after an expert was cited, who affirmed Biden might indeed owe taxes.  "This is a very long question.  I think I know what you're getting at.  This has been debunked, as you probably know.  Also he's released many, many years of his tax returns so people can check them out," Psaki said.

Hunter Biden Complicates White House Anti-Corruption Push.  [Scroll down]  Following the election, it seemed the whole Hunter Biden saga might fade away amid Trump's efforts to overturn the result, the storming of the Capitol and an ongoing pandemic.  Instead, he has remained in the headlines.  Most recently, news broke this summer that Hunter Biden would begin selling paintings, with initial prices as high as $500,000.  It was an extraordinary sum for a debut artist, and immediately invited concerns that people who wanted to ingratiate themselves with the president would overpay for his son's art. [...] Along with new evidence that at least some of the alleged laptop material is genuine — as well as other emerging evidence about the deals family members have sought or received from people with an interest in influencing Biden — the bipartisan outcry over the painting venture suggests that the Hunter Biden issue is not going away, and that liberals may increasingly tune in.

The Editor says...
Wow, there's a lot of left-wing propaganda in that article.  So tell me, if "some of the alleged laptop material is genuine," what material extracted from Hunter Biden's laptop is not genuine?  Is Politico still hanging on to the "Russian disinformation" claim?

So, where's The Post's Pulitzer for Hunter Biden exposé?  [Scroll down]  The fact that, on any given day, competing outlets highlight different stories and even draw different conclusions from the same facts reflect the personal element involved.  In many cases, those differences are admirable, but not always, and certainly were not admirable when The Post stood virtually alone a year ago.  On this, its first anniversary, the Hunter Biden saga remains an outrageous scandal for two reasons.  One for what it revealed about how Joe Biden's brothers and surviving son got big payments domestically and from foreign governments and nationals for years while he held public office.  The laptop that Hunter abandoned at a Delaware repair shop was bursting with emails and messages revealing a sordid pattern of deals with oligarchs, Chinese Communists and thugs that brought the family tens of millions of dollars.  Moreover, the laptop contained compelling evidence that contradicted Joe's risible claim he never discussed his son's businesses with him.  In fact, there was correspondence showing Joe aided Hunter by meeting with his foreign associates.

Joe Biden could become embroiled in the FBI's probe into Hunter's finances, experts say.  President Joe Biden could become embroiled in an FBI investigation of Hunter's finances, experts say, as emails reveal the father and son shared accounts and paid each other's bills.  Emails recovered by from Hunter's abandoned laptop between Hunter and Eric Schwerin, his business partner at consultancy Rosemont Seneca, show Schwerin was working on Joe's taxes, discussing the father and son paying each other's household bills, and even fielding requests for a book deal for the then-vice president, as well as managing the donation of Joe's senate papers to the University of Delaware.  It is unclear why Schwerin had this intimate role in the vice president's affairs rather than government officials in the Office of the Vice President.

Impeach Him!  The GOP should make the clear case for impeachment a central piece of their congressional election plan for 2022.  We already have a House resolution; now we need a sizable majority in the House of Representatives and Senate to convict and remove him.  The time is ripe.  The need is urgent.  If the weak-kneed Republican leadership will not do it, they should be replaced.  The Paul Ryanesque House Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) is certainly not up to the job, never defended Trump, and has so many skeletons in his closet [...] that he is an unacceptable Speaker of the House come 2022.  Replace him now with someone like Steve Scalise (R-La.), who has a backbone, has taken one for the team, and is a patriot and populist of the first order.  Why wait?  He would impeach Biden.

Hunter Biden's oh so valuable artwork.  Hunter Biden's artwork may well have real financial value, not because his works have great intrinsic artistic value but because he himself has become both famous and notorious.  It wouldn't be the first time this has happened.  In the first decade of the 20th century the young, teen-aged Adolf Hitler left his hometown to journey to the big city of Vienna to seek his fortune there as an architect.  He failed miserably and wound up on the streets as a homeless bum. [...] One of Hitler's hustles was the watercolor postcards he painted and created and then sold on the street. [...] Today these cards are quite valuable.  Not because they are great artwork, but because of who their creator was.  I think the same thing may be true of Hunter Biden's artwork.

Am I a better artist than Hunter Biden?  You be the judge.  [Scroll down]  But then there's Hunter Biden.  Mr. Biden's paintings go for something like $75,000 to $500,000.  Each.  After the Big Guy's 10% cut, that's still a pretty penny for a pretty ugly picture.  But give the Big Guy's little guy credit.  He's a regular Renaissance Man.  According to the Ukrainians who hired him for a sweet 6-figure gig as an advisor, he's a shrewd oil tycoon.  According to the Chinese, he's an expert in Chinese business and other international trade.  According to his, um, female friends, he's an accomplished cinematographer who both acts and directs for fun and profit.  And this energetic man still finds time to get high on coke and lose his laptops. [...] Joe says he's very proud of Hunter.  Who wouldn't be?  Oh, Hunter's paintings?  They're on display at a gallery populated by patrons of the arts who want to give and receive political favors.

Why Are So Many People Still Dying from COVID?  COVID has been with us for more than a year and a half, along with masks and distancing, since last year, and vaccine mandates, passports, and booster shots have been added.  How many of us thought life would be back to normal by now?  Or if not back to normal, on an improving trajectory?  President Trump told us numerous times last year that it would soon be over.  President Biden, as a candidate, promised an end to COVID.  Promises, promises.  From Biden's campaign website:  "Joe Biden and Kamala Harris have a seven-point plan to beat COVID-19 and get our country back on track."  Whether Biden had a 7- or 17-point plan, America is not back on track.

What Does Joe Biden's Health Have to Do with the Future of Taiwan?  The Chinese are making serious assessments about what they can expect from the U.S. and the Biden Administration if they invade Taiwan.  What are the plans and intentions of the Biden administration in regard to China and standing alongside the government of Taiwan?  And while many here may not be thinking about it, they are also assessing Biden's health and how that may impact U.S. response and timing.  In my experience as a member of the House Intelligence Committee, I can say we did focus on the health and wellbeing of key foreign leaders.  My committee was briefed multiple times on the likely death of Cuba's Fidel Castro in the 10 years I served on the Committee.  Highlighting how difficult this task was, let's just say they were wrong multiple times before they eventually got the assessment right.  After meetings with foreign leaders, I was often questioned about things I might have observed about them.  This was especially true after meetings with the late Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat and Libya's Muammar Gaddafi.

Biden's Presidency Is a Ticking Time Bomb.  Joe Biden's massive $4 trillion spending bills are in mortal danger of collapsing under their own weight as the gap between what the radicals want and what less-radical Democrats will vote for widens.  To make matters worse for ordinary Americans, Biden has come down decisively on the side of the radicals, leaving party moderates to wonder where the sanity went.  The $1.2 trillion bipartisan infrastructure bill, already passed by the Senate, is languishing in political purgatory with radical Democrats in the House threatening to kill it unless their $3.5 trillion social safety net bill is approved first.  Resentful moderates feel they've been lied to by the president and Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who promised an up-or-down vote on the bipartisan bill before the end of September.

Joe Biden sure does a lot of business with China.  I wonder why.
Ex-Director Of National Intelligence Sounds Alarm On Biden Policy: 'This Makes Very Little Sense'.  Former Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe told Fox News host Maria Bartiromo on Sunday [10/10/2021] that the Biden administration's move to buy Chinese drones for federal law enforcement was perplexing and that the move jeopardized U.S. national security.  Ratcliffe noted that the Trump administration flagged the specific Chinese company in question over what it said was "moderate confidence" that the Chinese company was providing information on U.S. critical infrastructure to the Chinese Communist Party.  "Like so much that Biden administration has done on national security lately, this makes very little sense," Ratcliffe said.

Biden must apologize to the border agents he smeared.  Two weeks ago, the Biden administration assured the nation that swift action would be taken to punish the border agents on horseback who were falsely accused of whipping Hatian migrants.  Even after it was perfectly clear that no whips were used and that no whipping occurred a beleaguered President Joe Biden called the actions of the agents "outrageous," "horrible to see," and said that the agents would "pay."  This week, the Department of Homeland Security failed to meet its own deadline for finishing their investigation into this absurd episode.  Back on September 22nd, DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas told Congress:  "I want to assure you that we are addressing this with tremendous speed and tremendous force.  The facts will drive the action we take."  He promised the investigation "will be completed in days — not weeks."  Ok.  So here we are.  What has been discovered in the mysterious case of the border agents not whipping migrants?  Are there any leads?  Or is it exactly what it looks like, a ridiculous reaction to misleading photos that were almost immediately shown not to support the idea that anyone was whipped.

Gallery selling Hunter Biden's paintings saw federal COVID-19 loan increased from $150k to $500k after his father Joe took office.  The art gallery selling Hunter Biden's paintings saw its federal COVID-19 loan increased from $150,000 to $500,000 after his father took office, it has been revealed.  Public records, seen by the New York Post, show the Georges Bergès Gallery in Soho, New York City, applied for and was granted a $150,000 COVID disaster assistance loan from the Small Business Administration last year.  In July 2021 — six months after Joe Biden took office — this figure was then revised, awarding the company another $350,000 and more than trebling the total value of the loan.

Today's deep question:  Why does Biden use a stage set instead of the White House?  The "fake set" question first came up a week ago, when a few critics speculated that Joe Biden's booster shot was as staged as the environs.  There's not a shred of evidence that Biden didn't get his third dose, and no good reason why he wouldn't have either.  But what is undeniably odd is the White House's continued use of the set, rather than ... y'know ... the White House.

The Editor says...
I suspect that Joe Biden's alleged "booster shot" was probably sterile water.  There's no way to know what it really was.  Why would he get injected with sterile water?  Because he knows what's in the so-called "vaccine," and it's highly toxic.  That's why healthy people are dying with a few days of getting the shot.

Biden Claims He's Created 'Five Million Jobs' Since Taking Office.  Joe Biden addressed the nation Friday afternoon after a series of disappointing reports on the economy; insisting "jobs up, wages up, unemployment down" since his first day in the Oval Office.  "In total, the job creation in the first eight months of my administration is nearly five million jobs.  Jobs up, wages up, unemployment down.  That's progress."

The Editor says...
Joe Biden is fully dependent on the teleprompter, perhaps to an even greater degree than Barack H. Obama.  Joe Biden will say whatever the teleprompter tells him to say.  The script on the teleprompter is written by persons unknown.  If the teleprompter says ten billion people are living in poverty, or U.S. astronauts are going to land on the moon next week, or trillions of dollars in pork barrel spending will cost nothing, or something equally ludicrous, that's what he will say.

Art gallery repping Hunter Biden received $500K federal COVID loan, records show.  A federal COVID loan to the art gallery repping Hunter Biden more than doubled after his father took office, records show.  The Georges Berges Gallery initially received a $150,000 COVID "disaster assistance loan" from the Small Business Administration last year, according to public records.  But the loan was recently "revised," with the SBA approving a further $350,000 to the SoHo gallery this summer, records show.  The approval came on July 26, in the lead-up to Berges' exclusive marketing of 15 paintings by the president's scandal-scarred son, public records show.

Joe Biden Will Become More Destructively Radical as His Poll Numbers Crater.  With his poll numbers cratering, we have only seen the beginning of His Fraudulency Joe Biden's dangerous and destructive radicalism.  And once we hit a recession, which is almost certainly imminent, Biden will become even more desperate and dangerous.  Biden is already flooding America with hundreds of thousands of unvaccinated illegal aliens, is already using his Gestapo FBI to terrorize parents opposed to Critical Race Theory as domestic terrorists, is already thrilling the Global Warming cult by wrist-flicking the horror of inflationary energy prices that threaten to pull the poor underwater this winter, and is already ordering fascist and unconstitutional vaccine mandates. [...] Granted, Biden probably doesn't know who or where he is half the time.  But his puppet masters certainly do, and there is no question they are looking at his catastrophic poll numbers with white-knuckled terror.  And that terror comes from knowing there is no going back.

Who Really Runs Joe Biden's White House?  Believe It or Not:  Joe Biden.  My fellow Republicans and conservatives have disappointed me lately.  Yet again, the Right is too nice.  While my free-market friends count themselves among the president's most fervent detractors, they nearly all make excuses for Biden.  I constantly hear reasons why he is the last person who deserves any blame for the Technicolor epic fail that is this administration: Someone else makes the decisions in the White House.  He has no idea what's going on.  Biden doesn't know what day it is.  Nonsense.  This is Joe Biden's White House, and he calls the shots — or at least goes along with what happens there and across the executive branch that he oversees.  This has been so since Day One of Biden's presidency.

The Editor says...
The article above is the end product of a number of dubious presuppositions with which The Editor disagrees.  Joe Biden is out to lunch.  There is a huge difference between calling the shots and "go[ing] along with what happens there."  Joe Biden is a pathetic shell of the mediocre, dishonest and venal politician he once was.  Anybody else with as much accumulated wealth and as many age-related mental problems as Joe Biden would be in a comfortable "assisted living" facility with a nice view of the ocean.  If the press had done its job a year ago, or longer, and if the National Review hadn't taken a "Never Trump" approach to journalism, the country might not be in this mess, with some anonymous left-wing puppet master running the U.S. into the ground.

Joe Biden Told a Big Whopper About the Vaccine This Week - so Where Are the 'Fact Checkers'?  In my personal opinion, people should not let what politicians say unduly influence their medical decisions, but it's a reality that many do.  There are no doubt people who listened to Biden's remarks yesterday or read about them later in the news and thought that if they go to the doctor or hospital that a healthcare worker couldn't transmit COVID to them.  So where are the fact-checkers out there on this who in the past have gotten online commentators censored or banned and the traffic of websites throttled for posting alleged misinformation about COVID and the vaccines?

The only reason to make note of a story like this is because it will very likely turn out to be a lie.
White House:  Joe Biden's Renewed Cough Is 'Allergies'.  The White House said Friday [10/8/2021] that President Joe Biden's renewed cough is the result of "allergies."  "He's doing great.  He's got some allergies," White House press secretary Jen Psaki said as she left the daily press briefing and a reporter shouted a question about the president's health.  Biden appeared twice in front of reporters on Friday, speaking with a raspy voice, repeatedly clearing his throat, coughing, and wiping his nose.

Report: Hunter Biden Sells 5 Pieces of Art for $75,000 Each in Los Angeles Show.  Hunter Biden, the president's son, reportedly sold at least five pieces of art for $75,000 each at his Los Angeles exhibit on October 1.  "The Georges Berges Gallery sold the prints before the Oct. 1 opening of a 'pop-up' presentation in Los Angeles, a source familiar with the matter said Thursday," the New York Post reported.  "It's unclear who purchased the reproductions — which cost a fraction of the top price of $500,000 for an original piece by President Biden's scandal-scarred son — or if any more were sold after the LA show opened."

Biden just bragged about helping a friend jump to the head of the line in an emergency room.  I don't want to live in a country where friends of powerful politicians get preference in receiving medical care, but Joe Biden evidently thinks that's an appealing vision of the future he is building.  He is actually so proud of doing his part to make that a reality in practice that he bragged about it in public.

Biden Has Mental Breakdown:  "The Ohio Pennsylvania, The Ohio Pennsylvania, I'm From Pennsylvania — the Illinois President".  On Thursday during a visit to Chicago at the Clayco Construction site in Elk Grove Village, President Joe Biden had a mental breakdown while trying to promote his vaccine mandates.  At one point during his speech, Biden forgot how to speak.  "The Ohio Pennsylvania, the Ohio Pennsylvania, I'm from Pennsylvania," Biden said as he gestured to himself.  "The Illinois president."  [Video clip]

Joe Biden Brags About Getting Americans Fired in Rambling Mess of a Speech.  The president appeared in public today [10/7/2021], and that always means the delivery of some really good material.  Sure enough, Joe Biden did not disappoint in a rambling mess of a speech he gave on the economy.  In it, he slammed the unvaccinated.  Worse, he actually bragged about getting people fired, claiming that it helped raise vaccination rates by subtraction.  When's the last time you heard a president brag about putting Americans out of a job?

Biden pushes employer-based vaccine mandates: 'Without them, we face endless months of chaos'.  President Biden visited the Chicago area Thursday [10/7/2021] to highlight vaccine mandates imposed by some of the biggest local companies, hoping to rally support for rules that are increasing vaccinations while sparking furious debate over the best way to reach the leery.  Mr. Biden said he is pushing employer-based mandates because companies saw their vaccination rates rise above 90% after imposing them.  He also believes the economic recovery depends on broad immunization.  "Here's the deal, these requirements are already proving that they work," the president said during a visit to a Clayco construction site in Elk Grove Village, Illinois.  "In the past few weeks, as more and more organizations have implemented their own requirements, they've seen their vaccination rates rise dramatically."

Biden appears to defend the unvaccinated losing their jobs and says Americans who haven't got the shot are damaging the economy.  Joe Biden said Thursday the 'bigger story' isn't that thousands of people are losing their jobs, but that the new mandates are increasing the percentage of Americans in the workforce who are vaccinated against COVID-19.  'These requirements work,' Biden lauded during a speech at a Clayco construction site in Elk Grove Village, Illinois.  The new Executive Order mandates that all businesses with at least 100 employees require those workers to provide proof of vaccination or be subject to compulsory weekly testing.

Biden admits he personally called a nurse's desk to try and get his friend's partner into a Pennsylvania ER this week.  President Biden admitted that he personally called a hospital desk on Wednesday night to see what was going on when a friend's wife could not bee seen at a Pennsylvania hospital overwhelmed with Covid-19 patients.  Biden said his friend's 'significant other' had fallen ill, with difficulty breathing and a high fever.  Biden said his friend called him after he'd rushed her to the hospital, where the emergency room told her she couldn't be seen because 'things were so crowded, so backed up.'  'I called the desk, received the nurse and asked what the situation was,' the president said in remarks on coronavirus vaccine requirements.

The Editor says...
Who was the beneficiary of this abuse of power?  Somebody's wife, same-sex spousal equivalent, or something else?  What would the news media do if Trump had done this?

Joe Biden's Potemkin White House starts getting literal.  [Scroll down]  Tucker Carlson has broadcast an important theory from former Trump administration advisor Stephen Miller, who knows his way around the White House:  [Video clip]  Miller believes that the phony set was constructed to enable Biden to read from a computer screen below him instead of a very visible teleprompter.  Which seems like a lot of expense for something they could just admit and adapt the White House to.  But they'd rather fool the public.  Biden, it seems, cannot talk off the cuff, or perhaps see well enough, or read well enough, without the words before him and up close, in a professionally lit setting.  Which points to the Potemkin reason — that he's not in charge, he's lost his faculties, his brain is a shambling, ravaged Crimean village nobody of importance should see, and he wants to fool the voters.  That's what the Potemkin set is for.  Tucker makes this point again and again in his full segment, pointing out that voters still don't quite know who is in charge.

George Orwell was Right.  One question must be asked of the regime that placed Biden in the White House.  Who is actually in charge?  Who is making the decisions?  Who is demanding these new Nazi-like rules/regulations/procedures?  Who is making the final call? [...] One thing seems without question, the figurehead in the White House is not making the final call.  He is incapable of doing this.  He does not have the mental stamina, the intellectual girth, nor the energy level needed to carry this out.  Nor the capacity to demand it get done.  Biden is not the puppetmaster, he's the puppet.  Whether it is Susan Rice or Barack Obama, or even Ms. Jill Biden, we don't know.  Whether it is the permanent Deep State apparatuses, or George Soros, or Dr. Anthony Fauci, or Bill Gates — we're not sure.  If it is China making the final call, (which should make Taiwan very nervous), it is unclear but possible.  It would not be hard to argue that the globalists in the New World Order are making the final call.

Biden falsely claims vaccinated people can't spread Covid in Illinois speech promoting vax mandates.  President Biden spread what the social media giants like to call "harmful misinformation" when censoring conservatives.  In the case of Biden's speech yesterday on Elk Grove Village, a Chicago suburb, the misinformation was downright dangerous, encouraging people to engage in hazardous conduct that could result in catching Covid.  As many on the left believe that Covid is a virtual death sentence despite a 99.5% recovery rate, the lack of a hysterical response from social media labeling this "harmful misinformation" is a notable example of partisan application of the rules they claim they follow.  Biden was in Illinois campaigning for private employers to fire people who don't get vaccinated.  In the course of doing so, he claimed that vaccinated people can't spread the virus, a total lie.

Biden Rambles On for 50 Seconds, Proclaims 'That's How We Beat COVID'.  President Biden confused countless Americans during a speaking event in Elk Grove Village, Illinois Thursday where he discussed his 'Build Back Better' plan and his efforts to "beat COVID-19."  "The Ohio Pennsylvania, Ohio Pennsylvania, I'm from Pennsylvania.  The Illinois President of the Don Harmon...  Um, we got great leadership too.  Where's Tim? ... Folks.  That's how we beat COVID-19," said the President.

Facebook 'whistleblower' worked for unit that censored Hunter Biden laptop story.  Facebook "whistleblower" Frances Haugen — who urged members of Congress this week to force the social-media giant to increase its policing of "misinformation" — worked for a unit at Facebook that censored the New York Post's blockbuster Hunter Biden laptop stories last fall.  Haugen testified this week that the Facebook's "civic integrity" unit was established for the 2020 election to combat "misinformation" and wound down when Biden won, Breitbart News reported.  A poll indicated the "laptop story" — which was about evidence that Joe Biden and his family cashed in on his position as vice president in business deals that potentially compromised national security — affected the outcome of the election.  The White House still insists that despite further confirmation that the messages on the laptop are authentic, the claims amount to "Russian disinformation."

Questions Abound over Biden's Use of Fake Oval Office.  It has been discovered that the Joe Biden administration has been using a set of the Oval Office to conduct video conferences and online broadcasts, BPR reported.  According to Fox News, the set "was constructed across from the White House in the South Court Auditorium in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building."  The most recent use of this farcical facility was Wednesday, when President Biden used it to hold a debt limit round table with business leaders.  The mere existence of the set is a mystery — and a concern — to many in and out of political circles.

Biden's Fake White House Set [is] Located Across The Street From Real White House.  Joe Biden's fake White House television set, on which he acts like he is conducting presidential business, is actually located across the street from the White House according to a firsthand press report and photographic evidence.  This revelation is especially disturbing as the political class in Washington attempts to pass a massive spending bill that would further loot the severely debt-ridden American government and the people who pay to prop up the whole system.

'Truman Show presidency': Biden ridiculed for using fake White House set.  Social media users shamed and mocked President Biden Wednesday [10/6/2021] after he spoke, once again, from a fake White House set that featured a digital monitor showing the Rose Garden in full bloom. [...] The video set, which was constructed across from the White House in the South Court Auditorium in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building, is used by Biden for video conferences and events broadcast online.  Featuring professional monitors and lighting, it is the same set Biden used to show himself receiving a third dose of the Pfizer/BioNTech Covid-19 vaccine. [...] "Why did the White House build a literal game show set complete with fake windows for Joe Biden," asked Abigail Marone, press secretary for Missouri Republican Sen. Josh Hawley.  "So weird."  [Numerous tweets]

I would have left out "Brewing."
Biden is Brewing a National Crisis.  Have we ever had a president who in mere months made so many dumb, intemperate decisions, thereby precipitating major crises?  You'd think that the Afghanistan and border fiascos would suffice for one four-year term.  But the smart money is that we haven't seen the last of Biden-manufactured crises.  Biden is a nightmare version of Pig-Pen of the Peanuts comic strip.  A perpetual cloud of incompetence, conceits, corruption, and shabby political motives swirls around him.

Kerry: Biden 'Literally Had Not Been Aware of What Had Transpired' on Submarine Deal.  During an interview with France's BFMTV released on Monday [10/4/2021], Special Presidential Envoy for Climate John Kerry stated that President Joe Biden "literally had not been aware of what had transpired" with the submarine deal between the U.S. and Australia.

Biden refuses to answer foreign policy question after debt ceiling speech because it'll 'confuse' Americans.  President Biden dismissed a reporter's question about a foreign policy issue concerning Ethiopia during a briefing on Tuesday [10/5/2021] to discuss raising the debt ceiling because he said it would "confuse" Americans.  The reporter noted that he wanted to ask the president about raising the ceiling, in which Republican leaders have said they refuse to join Democrats in doing, but also wanted to ask Biden something about the east African country that borders, among other nations, Djibouti, where the U.S. and China have military bases in close proximity.  "I'm gonna answer one, I'm not gonna answer Ethiopia, let's stick on the debt so we don't confuse the American people," Biden chided the reporter.

Who Are the Advisors Who Circle a Confused President?  And just who counsels President Joseph Biden?  The official White House list offers titles and names including chief of staff Ron Klain, deputy chief of staff Jen O'Malley Dillon, senior advisor Mike Donilon, and National Economic Council Director Brian Deese but who are the Washington personalities and power players behind the scenes who have the President's ear, and by extension, play an enormous role in shaping the fate of our nation?  To those currently anonymous individuals seeking to guide the President into advancing their own agenda, history has a very important message for you.  Things do not always go as planned.

Psaki won't say whether Hunter Biden has divested from Chinese private equity firm.  White House press secretary Jen Psaki on Monday refused to say whether President Biden's son Hunter had divested his 10% stake in a Chinese equity firm despite the president's pledge to prohibit family members from engaging in international business dealings.  Chinese business records reviewed by Fox News indicate Hunter Biden still holds a 10% stake in Chinese private equity firm Bohai Harvest RST Equity Investment Fund Management Co. through Skaneateles LLC.  Hunter Biden is the sole beneficial owner of Skaneateles, according to Washington corporate records.  "I'd point you to his representatives on that.  He doesn't work in the administration," Psaki told reporters on Monday.

A Dog Whistle?  Biden Calls Disgusting Harassment of Sinema and Manchin 'Part of the Process'.  Remember when Joe Biden called for calm and civility in politics when he was running for president?  Well, I guess that's out the window now.  In recent days, Senators Joe Manchin (D-W.Va) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.) have been targets of a harassment campaign.  Unhinged leftists have followed Sinema to her house and even into a public restroom.

LA Mayor Eric Garcetti among 200 people to attend Hunter Biden's art show.  Hunter Biden hosted an art show in Hollywood on Friday for several California elites, including Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti.  Garcetti was a national co-chairman of President Joe Biden's 2020 campaign and was nominated by the president to serve as the U.S. ambassador to India.  Also in attendance was Shepard Fairey, creator of the Obama /Hope poster, and the musician Moby.  Approximately 200 people reportedly attended the Hollywood event that took place in a large white room in Milk Studios, Mother Jones reports.  Hunter Biden's gallerist, George Bergès, is reportedly charging up to $500,000 per piece of artwork, the Atlantic reports.

Between Afghanistan and Immigration, Have We Ever Had a Less Competent President?  [Scroll down]  The second completely self-generated Biden crisis is immigration.  As with many other issues, it's now apparent that more than anything else, Biden's goal was to undo what former President Donald Trump had done on immigration.  The dominant far-left activist wing of his party had campaigned on open borders.  This is not a concept that sane people find comforting.  Countries need borders.  Biden claims to understand this, but his actions to date have destroyed the border security measures in place when he took office.  To recap, when Trump first took office, the southern border was in crisis.  Human smugglers and left-wing activists realized there was no need to sneak across our border; if a migrant showed up and claimed political asylum and a fear of persecution in their home country, we would release them to an American community until a hearing could be held.  The vast majority would then never show up for the hearing.  Our goodwill was abused by those seeking to game our system.

How does Biden stack up against a list of Alzheimer's symptoms?  It is tragic for the individual, family, and loved ones of an elderly person suffering from dementia or Alzheimer's.  It is a disaster for our nation if it is our president.  Is President Biden suffering from a disease that is robbing him of his cognitive abilities?  President Biden's longtime personal physician and now White House physician, Dr. Kevin O'Connor, has either not performed or not released the results of a cognitive test.  President Biden's staff shield him from view, and the media continue to protect the president from scrutiny.

Carter 2.0 — Joe Biden Falls Apart Just Like Jimmy Carter, This Time on Immigration.  This Baby Boomer author finds it easy to write about Joe Biden — because he remembers Jimmy Carter.  So when the 46th president does something, I need only to recall what the 39th president did (and what was done to him during his single term, 1977-1981), and the similarities become clear.  Indeed, just this year, I've written about five Biden-Carter parallels:  on the economy, national security, crime, inflation, and Iran.  So now here's a sixth parallel, which is the president's inability to manage a difficult issue, specifically the issue of immigration.  (We can save a seventh parallel, infrastructure and reconciliation, for another time.)

The Editor says...
I would prefer to think of Barack H. Obama as "Carter 2.0" and Biden as "Obama 2.0."  Carter was weak and ineffective, and to some extent he might have been somebody else's puppet, but at least he wasn't senile, malevolent, corrupt and venal like Joe Biden.

Pathetic: White House Dubs "We Love Joe!" Chant in Video of Congressional Ballgame Appearance to Make Biden Seem Popular.  In an apparent effort to counter the nationwide trend of "F*** Joe Biden!" chants at sporting events around the nation, the White House released a video Sunday morning of Joe Biden's visit to the Congressional baseball game in Washington, D.C. last Wednesday night that opens with overdubbed girlish voices chanting "We love Joe!" as Biden entered Nationals Park.  In contrast to the thunderous "We love Trump!" chants by thousands of supporters at President Trump's rallies, the Biden cheers sound like a handful of female White House staffers recorded in a studio.  Hear for yourself.  [Tweet with video clip]

Biden's Handlers Need to Get Him Back in the Basement.  Joe Biden's handlers need to find a basement for him, and there's no time to waste.  Things went off the rails yesterday after he appeared on Capitol Hill and effectively blew up negotiations between his own party.  I'm not even sure how he did it, but Biden managed to undercut both Nancy Pelosi and Joe Manchin — despite those two being on opposite ends of the reconciliation issue. [...] After his excursion, when he was pressed on his ineptitude, he managed to joke about the various crises that have engulfed the nation over the last two months.  You know, because a collapsing nation is funny or something.  He couldn't be more tone-deaf if he tried.  [Video clip]

Joe Biden's Visit to the Capitol Was Much Worse Than Originally Thought.  [Scroll down]  While I'm always a skeptic when it comes to the government actually doing the right thing, which in this case would be not spending $3.5 trillion on broad entitlements that aren't needed, I'm not seeing how the two sides get together here.  Pelosi is already having a hard enough time rallying the moderates by herself.  Now, she has Biden and his White House actively rallying progressives to keep obstructing when they themselves have no leverage to speak of.  It's a recipe for nothing passing at all.  And that's great if you are a Republican, but it's still worth noting just how ineffective and impotent Joe Biden is.  This is a man who has no sense of his own ability or lack thereof.  He truly believes he's above it all, able to show up at Congress, say "c'mon man" a few times, and have his agenda rubber-stamped.  But he's learning quickly, to the extent he can process what's even happening, that he has no mandate.

And now, here's Joe's non sequitur of the week:
Joe Biden to Dems:  Vote for Trillions in Spending, or the Capitol Rioters Win.  President Joe Biden has sought to motivate Democrats on Capitol Hill to vote for his multi-trillion-dollar spending bills by warning them that if the bills fail, those who supported the Capitol riot on January 6 will celebrate a political victory.  One bill is a bipartisan $1.2 trillion "infrastructure" bill (most of which is not traditional infrastructure).  The other is a $3.5 trillion catch-all spending bill that includes Democrats' most radical priorities, and which Biden has recently linked to his "Build Back Better" policy agenda.  It can only pass the Senate through the so-called "reconciliation" process, which has been abused by recent Democratic administrations to evade the Senate's filibuster rule.

Biden Should Resign?  [Scroll down]  For what it is worth, I don't want Joe Biden to resign.  That would only give us Kamala Harris.  It is remarkable that Harris is no better than Biden, and in some respects worse, despite not suffering from dementia.  We need, not Biden's resignation, but rather a GOP sweep in next year's elections.  I think that will happen.  The great unknown is how much damage the Democrats, desperate and with their backs against the wall, will inflict via multi-trillion dollar spending and tax packages, designed mostly to fund lavishly and guarantee power to Democratic Party constituencies.

Anybody notice how often Joe Biden has empowered Putin?  Vladimir Putin of Russia, battered and diminished by the Trump years, is now in the catbird seat.  Joe Biden is the reason why.  In the midst of his incompetence, bad judgment, and quite possibly corrupt tradeoffs, he's enacted a string of bad decisions to empower the Russian autocrat.  Quite unlike President Trump, who was accused by a mendacious and maddened left of being 'Putin's puppet,' Joe Biden is the real thing.  Which is pretty ironic, really:  For a man who wrote the gushing book blurb to the most negative portrayal of Putin I've ever read, Fiona Hill's "Mr. Putin," which I wrote about [elsew]here, Biden's decisions to empower Putin are very strange indeed.  We often talk about China as being empowered and emboldened by Biden, but the less-noted Putin empowerment from Biden is clearly stronger.  Biden's latest is a jaw-dropper:  In the wake of his disastrous pullout from Afghanistan, he's now begging Putin for access to Russian bases from which to surveil for terror activity.

More 'Woke' Generals Need To Testify About Their Failures.  In August, President Joe Biden told ABC News' George Stephanopoulos that none of his military advisers suggested that he keep a residual force of 2,500 troops in the country to ensure that Afghanistan did not fall to the Taliban.  That was false.  The military brass told Congress that they had, indeed, presented that option to Biden.  [Joint Chiefs of Staff Chair General Mark] Milley went further:  he noted that in November 2020, then-President Donald Trump had ordered all troops to be withdrawn from Afghanistan, but that after the military warned him of a potential collapse, he rescinded the order.  Trump wanted to pull out of the country, but he listened to his military advisers.  Not so Joe Biden, who insisted on withdrawal — but on Sep. 11, not May 1, which ensured disaster.  Not only did the new date break the agreement Trump had reached with the Taliban — in negotiations started by Obama, by the way — but it also placed the withdrawal smack in the middle of the summer "fighting season," rather than the winter.

Hunter Biden and the Art of Corruption.  President Joe Biden's son, Hunter, has now plunged into the world of international art, with a New York gallery owner brokering art sales for the rare, emerging talent.  Apparently, Hunter's paintings might sell for as much as $500,000 to various anonymous aficionados, according to Hunter's new art dealer, Georges Bergès.  It is the latest in a string of scams Hunter Biden has undertaken.  First, it was his being named, with no expertise whatsoever in either Ukraine or the oil and gas business, to the board of directors of Burisma, a Ukrainian oil and gas company under investigation for fraud.  Then it was the deluxe payday in 2012 for his Rosemont-Seneca real estate investment partnership, which was bankrolled to the tune of more than $1.5 billion by Chinese investors with close ties to the Chinese Communist Party.  Hunter had little or no experience in private equity, either, but he had just arrived in Beijing aboard Air Force Two with his father the Vice President, just two weeks before that enormous deal was announced.

Biden Can't Help Himself, Traps Young Woman During Congressional Baseball Game.  During the Congressional Baseball Game on Wednesday night, President Joe Biden made an appearance and was booed by many in attendance.  At one point during the night while in the dugout, the maskless Joe Biden boxed in a young woman, putting his hands around where she was so she couldn't move.

Asked Why Joe Biden Is Better than Donald Trump, White House Repeats Bleach Hoax.  CLAIM:  White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki claimed that former President Donald Trump suggested "people inject bleach" to fight the coronavirus.  Psaki made the claim after a New York Times reporter asked her to respond to criticism that President Joe Biden was following many polices that Trump started.  VERDICT: MOSTLY FALSE.  President Donald Trump questioned an expert during a press conference about the value of injecting disinfectant or Ultraviolet rays into the body to kill the coronavirus.  He did not tell Americans to inject bleach into their arms.

What if it was Jill Biden who ordered the calamitous withdrawal from Afghanistan?  Many Biden watchers have long observed Jill Biden's grasping obsession with becoming the First Lady.  Throughout the campaign as Joe Biden's failing mental abilities became more and more obvious, did she love him enough to end it?  Oh no, not Jill.  She continued on with her elder abuse.  One explanation may be her long fascination with Edith Wilson.  She admired and apparently coveted the role that Mrs. Wilson filled after President Woodrow had a stroke in October 1919.  Edith Wilson hid the seriousness of her husband's condition and took over the job of running the country until the end of his term in March, 1921.  While Edith claimed only to be a "steward" of her husband's presidency and that she took over with the full approval of his doctors, in truth she was quite a bit more controlling than she said.

Marsha Blackburn Calls for POTUS to Resign over Afghanistan Debacle.  Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) on Tuesday [9/28/2021] called on President Joe Biden to resign over his fatally botched withdrawal of U.S. military forces from Afghanistan, accusing the Commander-in-Chief of making false statements about advice he received on pulling out from the war-torn country.  Testifying publicly before the Senate Armed Services Committee Tuesday, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley and head of U.S. Central Command Gen. Kenneth McKenzie both said they recommended keeping some U.S. troops in Afghanistan.

Dem Senator's Assessment of Biden Admin's Senate Testimony Is Searing: 'No One in Charge'.  [Scroll down]  But maybe no Democrat lit up the Biden team for their failures more than Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT).  I have to say, he has, at least on this incident, seemed like a different person. [...] Blumenthal stressed it was a "moral imperative" that we had to evacuate the people left stranded, yet the State Department pointed at the Department of Defense.  The Department of Defense pointed at the White House.  No one seemed to be addressing the real and continuing question that is an imperative right now, he said.  His point was a critical one.  Even now, almost a month and a half after Kabul fell, almost a month since the withdrawal, we still have people stranded with no coordination and no answers from the Biden team, with rescues left up to private individuals and members of Congress to figure out on their own.

Most Americans no longer trust Biden's COVID information:  Poll.  Most Americans no longer trust President Biden to give accurate information about the COVID-19 pandemic, according to the latest Axios/Ipsos Coronavirus Index.  Conducted Sept. 24-27, the survey of 1,105 Americans over the age of 18 reported that only 45% trust President Biden "a great deal or a fair amount" to give them honest information about the virus, while 53% trust him "very little or not at all."  "Fewer than half now say they trust the president, a 13-percentage point decline from his high water mark right after his inauguration in January," wrote the survey's four authors.

President Biden Governs Through Obvious, Ham-Fisted Lies.  Hardly a day passes anymore that President Joe Biden or members of his administration do not stand before the American people and lie through their teeth.  The latest lie to be exposed came Tuesday [9/28/2021], when Gen. Kenneth McKenzie, head of U.S. Central Command, told the Senate Armed Services Committee that he advised Biden to keep 2,500 troops in Afghanistan, and that withdrawing them "would lead inevitably to the collapse of the Afghan military forces and eventually, the Afghan government."  Chairman of the Joint Chiefs General Mark Milley said he told Biden the same thing.  The generals' testimony flatly contradicts Biden's claim in an August 19 interview with George Stephanopoulos of ABC News that none of his military advisors told him to keep 2,500 troops in Afghanistan, or ever warned him that withdrawing those troops would trigger the collapse of the Afghan military and government.

No Apology from Joe Biden After Falsely Accusing Border Agents of Hitting Haitian Migrants with Straps.  President Joe Biden has not apologized to border patrol officials after he accused them of hitting Haitian migrants with straps as they worked to secure the border while riding horses.  "It was horrible to see what you saw, to see people treated like they did," Biden said last week.  "Horses running them over, people being strapped.  It's outrageous.  I promise you those people will pay."  Biden accused the agents of hitting migrants even though there was no available evidence to back up his statement.  A photographer who took images even told Texas media that the images were "misconstrued" and that he never saw agents whip anyone.

"You Have My Word, as a Biden".  Joe offering his surname as his sword of fidelity is pretty rich.  Joe's fibs are legion.  I'm not sure there is anything in his falling upwards life that he hasn't lied about or inflated like a party balloon.  From his lifeguarding days to inflating his education, to the ugly and verifiably false claim that his daughter and first wife were killed by a drunk driver.  She was at fault and the other driver wasn't drunk.  Joe's brother Frank is part of the family grift circus.  Frank was part of the Chinese deal with the "Big Guy" and has his own sideshow of profiting off the family name.  Joe's son Hunter is in the grifting hall of fame.  Hunter has used the name Biden like a mugger uses a handgun.  That last name Biden brought him millions.  His wealth didn't come from a marketable talent.  He's a family name grifter and he's good at it.

Twitter Users Notice Massive Strange Detail Behind Biden in Photo of Him Getting Booster Shot.  Anyone who is already skeptical about the vaccine and the intentions of the Biden administration will by no means gain any confidence in its agenda in observing the president appear to be putting on a big show — literally — about getting his booster.  It would have seemed far more authentic — and a normal, presidential thing to do — for Biden to get the shot in the Oval Office.  The stage set just screams confirmation of phoniness to those who suspect the administration is just pandering to the public.  If hiring TikTok stars and bringing pop artists to the White House didn't seem performative enough, setting Biden up on a stage to get the vaccine certainly did it.

Biden Gets COVID-19 Booster Shot On Camera But Photos Reveal That It Was A Movie-Set With A Fake Background.  President Biden received his COVID-19 vaccine booster shot on Monday, after public health officials recommended boosters for many Americans, including those 65 and older.  Mr. Biden, 78, got his third shot on camera, and delivered brief remarks before his jab.  The Food and Drug Administration granted an emergency use authorization last week for booster doses of Pfizer's COVID-19 vaccine six months after the completion of the two-dose course for those 65 and older, those with some underlying conditions and those who work in high-risk environments.  The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention also recommended a booster shot for these groups of people.

It Is All a Potemkin Village.  Every single scripted aspect of this administration is a staged pantomime.

Cornered Psaki can't say which advisers told Biden to pull everybody out, annoyed press won't relent.  White House press secretary Jen Psaki was asked by reporters on Tuesday [9/28/2021] to provide proof to substantiate President Joe Biden's dubious claim that "some" of his top generals had supported his decision to withdraw all U.S. troops from Afghanistan.  But she failed to provide a single piece of evidence, and many are now suggesting that the president of the United States is a bold-faced liar.  The grilling occurred hours after all of the president's top generals testified to Congress that they'd, in fact, opposed the president's plan.  The grilling began with ABC News' Terry Moran, who asked Psaki to name the specific military advisors who'd "told him it'd' be fine to pull everybody out."

The left's three-pronged assault on America:  Covid, the border, submission to China.  Joe Biden allegedly got his third jab on live TV on Monday [9/27/2021].  He was already "fully vaccinated" and still wore a mask.  Does that give anyone confidence in the vaccine? [...] Biden, as surely everyone knows by now, even those who voted for him, is seriously cognitively challenged.  He was never a smart man but now he is non compos mentis.  He understands nothing about science, certainly not the science of virology or epidemiology.  He reads words from teleprompters others have scripted.  He has no grasp of the meaning of the words he is reading.

Biden's Vaccine Mandate Gets More Pointless Every Day.  Three weeks ago, President Joe Biden told America he'd ordered his regulators to draw up "emergency" workplace rules requiring vaccinations for everyone working for big companies.  Those rules have yet to emerge.  And they might not emerge for another month and a half.  Meanwhile, the Biden administration announced on Friday [9/24/2021] — which is the day politicians choose to release news when they want minimal coverage — that federal contractors will have until Dec. 8 to comply with that part of his mandate.  More than two months from now.  In other words, Biden hasn't managed to get his federal mandate implemented yet, and won't for some time.  What he has managed to achieve is dissension, confusion, lawsuits, and worker shortages — as well as a steady decline in daily vaccination rates.

Big Brother is bluffing.
White House Has No Idea When, or Even If, OSHA Will Ever Provide Rules to Support Legally Enforceable Worker Vaccine Mandate.  On September 9th, Joe Biden made the announcement that all employers with more than 100 workers would be required to enforce a national worker vaccine mandate.  The White House stated that OSHA would, "develop a rule that will require all employers with 100 or more employees to ensure their workforce is fully vaccinated."  However, following the announcement we noted OSHA was not taking any steps needed to engage with business interests to trigger the first-step in the organization of a process to initiate a rule-making process.  I'm only talking about the basic guidance aspect.  The labor discussions with internal and external customers of the DoL, OSHA, etc. to set a calendar for how to implement "guidance", just that part.  There was nothing, and there is nothing.

Impeachment fuel:
Does Biden Believe That Laws Should Only Be Observed Selectively?  Creaky Joe Biden's taste for lawlessness surfaced immediately in his administration.  Sean Higgens reported, "One of Joe Biden's first acts as President of the United States, the removal of National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) general counsel Peter Robb, was probably unconstitutional.  It was certainly highly unethical.  Biden fired Robb despite the NLRB being an independent federal agency." [...] In dealing with Covid, Biden's various mask and vaccination mandates have been a direct challenge to the very Constitution he is sworn to uphold. [...] On another front, Biden's CDC decided in early August to extend for two months a federal eviction moratorium on renters who are behind in payments to their landlords, although the Supreme Court had already indicated the CDC lacked legal authority to do so. [...] This is a highly troubling aspect of a disintegrating presidency that appears to run on the premise that if you don't like the law, evade it or ignore it.  But what else could one expect from a man whose sleazy, drug-fueled, wannabe porn star son has apparently been peddling access to his father to the Chinese and other foreign interests?

Here's Why Biden Is so Desperate to Sell the Lie That His Plan Costs 'Zero Dollars'.  As we previously reported, Joe Biden is going all-in with this ridiculous claim, suddenly, that his $3.5 trillion budget reconciliation bill costs "zero dollars."  [Tweet]  He wasn't alone in trying to push this claim.  As we pointed out, he had Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) parroting the claim.  Now, other Democrats have jumped aboard the narrative train including Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA), the head of the Congressional Progressive Caucus.  [Tweet]  Rep. Alan Lowenthal (D-CA) signed on board as well.  [Tweet]  Here's White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki trying to sell the same claim.  [Tweet]

Biden Claims His $3.5 Trillion Spending Package Actually Costs $0.  According to [Joe] Biden, or whichever handler runs his Twitter account, his $3.5 trillion spending package actually costs "zero dollars."  "My Build Back Better Agenda costs zero dollars," Biden claimed in a Twitter posts.  How does it cost "zero dollars" you may ask?  Because Biden just plans on robbing you, the American taxpayer, to pay for the package which in turn makes it "zero dollars."  Makes total sense!  "My Build Back Better Agenda costs zero dollars," he tweeted.  "Instead of wasting money on tax breaks, loopholes, and tax evasion for big corporations and the wealthy, we can make a once-in-a-generation investment in working America.  And it adds zero dollars to the national debt."

The Editor says...
Nobody is that stupid.  This guy is nuts.

The Collapse of Biden's World.  Despite his vow to "build back better," China is forcing all of Joe Biden's moves.  The Asian giant's decision to pursue its own climate policy, consisting largely of more industrialization with green trimmings, effectively kills the Paris accords, so long a part of the progressive platform.  How could it not?  Beijing produces more emissions than the EU and U.S. combined. [...] The fate of large parts of the U.S. economy consequently depends not on regulatory actions in Washington but on bureaucratic decisions in China.  The global world that Joe Biden had hoped to inherit is falling apart right under him, like a comedy car shedding its parts as it rattles down the road.

Joe Biden:  Tax Tyrant, Tax Cheat, Tax Hypocrite.  If there were any doubts that the Democrats are closeted authoritarians who sometimes crack the door and reveal their urge to rule like autocrats, all should have been removed last week when President Joe Biden yapped about federal tax policy.  "I'm running to change the dynamic of how the economy grows," he said.  "I'm tired of trickle-down.  Trillionaires and billionaires are doing very, very well." [...] Biden was elected to be the CEO of the federal government, and to "preserve, protect and defend" the Constitution, not to carry out his personal preferences.  Furthermore, Biden has neither the moral nor constitutional license to meddle in private affairs and employ authoritarian means to abolish something simply because he's tired of it.  He is not a king whose whims are law.

Biden White House's lies [are] a matter of life and death.  President Biden has gotten away his entire career with bending the truth and taking people for fools.  Now the habit has infected his entire administration.  So many lies are pumped out these days that it is impossible to keep up.  They aren't just the silly, self-aggrandizing exaggerations that used to send the Trump-hating media into paroxysms of outrage during the last administration.  They often are matters of life and death that have a profound impact on the future of this country.

Schadenfreude to start the week:  Biden and the Dems' plans are collapsing.  Only 8 months into the Biden presidency, disaster looms for the Democrats, and boy do they deserve every bit of humiliation and voter repudiation that looks to be in prospect.  Yes, it is almost 14 months until the midterm election gives the public a chance to correct the electoral results that were proclaimed as genuine, and that's an eternity in politics.  But two factors give me a fair degree of confidence that the trend we see now will continue and accelerate:
  [#1]   Biden is not going to get more coherent.  He is visibly declining, the victim of his pathologically status seeking wife who surely realized his ongoing dementia made him unsuitable for office.  And his potential replacement is so repulsive that Vice President Harris is kept hidden from the pubic as much as possible.  And
  [#2]   With the slimmest of Congressional vote margins, the Dems have committed themselves to a far-reaching transformation demanded by the far left faction of the party that would spell doom for the few remaining non-extremists in the party.
Biden's polls are collapsing.

Joe Biden sure does a lot of favors for China.  I wonder why.
Biden Admin Resolves Charges Against Huawei Executive, Hours Later China Releases the 'Hostages'.  China has been credited with practicing "successful hostage diplomacy" in a deal that saw two Canadian citizens freed.  To make that happen, the Biden administration's Justice Department cut a deal with Meng Wanzhou, 49, the chief financial officer of Huawei Technologies, according to The Associated Press.  The fraud charges against Wanzhou will be officially dropped next year, and she was allowed to return to China.

Why Your Otherwise Smart Friends Think Stupid Things.  In October 2020, shortly before the election, the New York Post published a scoop about Hunter Biden's emails.  ["]Hunter Biden introduced his father, then-Vice President Joe Biden, to a top executive at a Ukrainian energy firm less than a year before the elder Biden pressured government officials in Ukraine into firing a prosecutor who was investigating the company, according to emails obtained by the Post. [... "]  Neither Hunter nor Joe disputed the account.  Instead, as the Wall Street Journal reports this week, ["]Both men counted instead on the rest of the media to serve as a cordon sanitaire, and did they ever.  Twitter barred the Post's feed for a time lest Americans be able to read about the emails and their content.  A press that was interested in telling the truth about both candidates would have pressed to confirm the Post's story and examined the emails for themselves.  Instead they rose nearly as one to denounce the Post and claim without evidence that the emails might have been Russian disinformation.  That was a sorry repeat of the Russia collusion narrative from 2016, which the press flogged for more than two years but we now know was concocted by the Hillary Clinton campaign.["]

'Biden should have supported us before spouting off': Border Patrol agents blast president for false claim.  Border Patrol agents' outrage at Joe Biden is growing, with officers furious that the president has thrown them under the bus over the Haitian migrant debacle.  They are especially angry at the White House's rush to judgment over pictures of a mounted agent swinging the reins of his horse while confronting an immigrant, which were first believed to show him whipping the man.  That account has already been debunked with even the photographer saying his image showed no such thing.

Stolen Elections Have Consequences.  Progressives seem completely committed to the Cloward-Piven strategy, even those who have no idea what it is.  So here we are, stuck in the midst of a government induced labor shortage.  A completely man-made crisis either by design or stupidity or a lethal combination of the two.  Fast food joints can't hire burger flippers and fry droppers even at $16/hour, never mind the truly vital jobs of dock workers and long-haul truckers.  And still, Joey is "losing patience" with you dolts who refuse to get jabbed so he's going to mandate that you do if you want to keep your job.  That should help everything.  The evil geniuses in charge are starting to look less genius and a great deal more evil.  They have no idea how to turn things around much less fix what they broke.

Biden Isn't Facing 'Challenges.' Biden Is The Challenge.  Well-known Washington creature Amy Walters wrote this week on the "challenge" that Joe Biden is facing early in his presidency: "The former senator and vice president looks more like a helpless bystander than an experienced Capitol Hill deal maker..."  That, in a nutshell, is the national media's preferred framing of the absolute breakdown we're witnessing under Biden.  A collapse that he created and is wholly responsible for.  The media want Biden to look like a "helpless bystander," a victim of circumstances out of his control.  He's not.  He's the perpetrator of nearly every disaster anyone with eyes can see, from the obscenity at the southern border, to the loss of 13 service members (not fighting, but leaving a war zone), to the stratospheric inflation of household necessities.  We're led to believe these are simply "challenges" Biden is facing rather than the results of his own deliberate screw-ups.

The Hunter Biden e-mail coverup is the clearest evidence yet of media corruption.  The Hunter Biden e-mail coverup may not be the most contemptible example of the modern political media's corruption, but it is probably the most demonstrable.  Politico reports that Ben Schreckinger's new book, "The Bidens:  Inside the First Family's Fifty-Year Rise to Power," corroborates much of the New York Post's pre-election reporting on Hunter Biden's e-mails.  Two of them stick out:  The first is a 2015 missive from a Ukrainian businessman thanking Hunter for the chance to meet Joe Biden — then, still vice president.  The second is a 2017 e-mail in which a proposed equity breakdown of a venture with Chinese energy executives included the line, "10 held by H for the big guy?"  Of course, The Post story already had more substantiation than the histrionic and fallacious Russia-collusion scoops the nation had been subjected to for four years.  The Post had reported, in great detail, how it had physically obtained Hunter's laptop. [...]

Twitter and the 'Fact-Checkers' Line Up for Biden.  Twitter makes it easy to realize that the purpose of "fact-checkers" is most commonly rushing to defend President Joe Biden from misinterpretation ... and mockery.  On Sept. 20, Twitter warned, "A video of President Biden discussing hurricane preparedness has been edited out of context, according to fact-checkers."  Tweets aired this clip of Biden from Aug. 10:  "Let me be clear:  If you're in a state where hurricanes often strike — like Florida or the Gulf Coast or into Texas — a vital part of preparing for hurricane season is to get vaccinated now."  It's easy to see his point:  You may not want to be stuck in a shelter while you're unvaccinated.  But it does sound a little funny that your "vital preparations" would be to board up the house, batten down the hatches, and then get the shot.  It sounds like "insert a plea for vaccination in every public statement."

Biden opposes honorable discharge guarantee for troops who refuse COVID vaccine.  President Joe Biden came out this week in opposition to the military guaranteeing service members who refuse the mandatory COVID-19 vaccine will receive an honorable discharge.  On Tuesday [9/21/2021], the Biden White House submitted a Statement of Administration Policy voicing Biden's support and opposition for various provisions in the 2022 National Defense Authorization Act.  One key provision Biden voiced opposition to would guarantee U.S. military service members will be allowed to take an honorable discharge if they refuse to take the COVID-19 vaccines.  The provision of the 2022 defense budget, titled Section 716, was introduced by Rep. Mark Green (R-TN).  The provision states, "A member of an Armed Force under the jurisdiction of the Secretary of a military department subject to discharge on the basis of the member choosing not to receive the COVID-19 vaccine may only receive an honorable discharge."

HorseGate: Joe Biden Falsely Claims Mounted Border Patrol Agents Were "Strapping" and Whipping Illegal Border Crossers.  Earlier today [9/24/2021], Joe Biden claimed the mounted Texas Border Patrol officers were "strapping" and whipping Haitians who were attempting to illegally cross the Rio Grande river into Del Rio, Texas.  Biden declares to the nation:  "Those People will pay."  And now the rest of the administration and media will have to join with the Biden narrative and push the fake news.  Which is exactly what happened when DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas was asked moments ago.  Now that Biden is pushing a transparently obvious lie; and now the administration and media are forced to support this transparently obvious lie; and now the leftist supporters in America will have to maintain support for this transparently obvious lie; and that only further divides the country.

Border Patrol Council head says Biden would be arrested for 'aiding and abetting' illegal immigrants if he wasn't president.  The President of the National Border Patrol Council, Brandon Judd, told Fox News on Thursday [9/23/2021] that he would arrest Joe Biden for "aiding and abetting" if he wasn't president.  Judd told Fox News host Sean Hannity that he's been patrolling the borders since Bill Clinton was president, and of all the border policies he's worked under, President Donald Trump's "were by far the best," but President Joe Biden "completely and totally dismantled all of those policies."  "And when you look at our Border Patrol agents, when they are sent down there to that job, and by the way, Mayorkas was down on the border, and he saw the horses, he knew the horses were out there, and now he's making, doing a 180," Judd added.  [Video clip]  "But when our agents are out there trying to patrol the border, do their job to the best of their ability, then they're vilified by the president," he continued.

Joe Biden Tells Indian Prime Minister Not to Answer Questions from U.S. Press.  President Joe Biden continued his conflict with American reporters Friday [9/24/2021], urging Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi not to take questions from them during a meeting in the Oval Office.  "I think, with your permission, you could not answer questions because they won't ask any questions on point," Biden told Modi, referring to the American press.

Biden Insults American Press and Shuts Down Indian PM From Taking Questions During Meeting.  We've reported about how Joe Biden's staff has gone to great lengths to prevent him from answering questions.  His meeting with U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson at the White House was a great example of this.  Johnson took some questions from the British press.  But as he was finishing up, the Biden staffers interrupted him, screaming at the top of their lungs at the press to get out, creating all kinds of chaos.  The press then filed a complaint with White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki.  She basically treated them like dirt and like their objections meant nothing.  Then, when she was pressed on it the next day, she blamed Prime Minister Boris Johnson, saying he never should have taken questions, suggesting that he should have checked with them before taking any questions.  Clearly, their aim is to control the narrative.  They not only didn't want Biden answering questions, they didn't want Johnson to either, likely because then Biden's failure not to becomes much more obvious.

Biden heads off to Camp David despite border crisis.  President Joe Biden left the White House Friday night together with first lady Jill Biden for a weekend away at Camp David at the end of a chaotic week that saw an impromptu border camp in Del Rio, Texas, cleared of thousands of Haitian migrants.  Nearly 30,000 migrants had been encountered in Del Rio in the past two weeks but by Friday morning there were none left in the camp beneath the international bridge that links the U.S. with Mexico.  More than 12,000 migrants will have a chance to make their case for protection before U.S. immigration judges, an estimated 8,000 voluntarily returned to Mexico, and 2,000 were expelled to Haiti.  The fate of others detained is to be decided.

Hunter Biden Requested More Than $2 Million To Unfreeze Libyan Assets When Dad Was VP.  Hunter Biden requested a $2 million annual retainer and "success fees" to help unfreeze Libyan assets when his father, Joe Biden, was vice president, according to emails reviewed by Business Insider.  Through an intermediary, the younger Biden offered to help recover $15 billion in Libyan assets that the Obama administration froze during the reign of Muammar Qaddafi.  The intermediary, a Democratic donor, in a Jan. 28, 2015, email asked for a "close circle of people" to be involved in the offer "for confidentiality," adding that Joe Biden was considering running for president.  Another email on Feb. 26, 2016, stressed the importance of only a small, close-knit group's being involved "due to the sensitivities surrounding their involvement."

Biden Wants People to Pay 'Fair Share' in Taxes but He May Have a Big Problem of His Own.  Joe Biden is fond of saying that the rich should "pay their fair share."  That's a big part of the $3.5 trillion budget reconciliation plan that he's been pushing. [...] But there may be one rich person who hasn't paid his fair share — that's Joe Biden himself.  Biden may have avoided paying as much as $500,000 in back Medicare taxes on speaking fees and book sales in 2017 and 2018, according to Fox News.

Joe Biden Blames His Failures on 'What I Inherited' from Donald Trump.  President Joe Biden made excuses for his administration's failures on Friday by blaming former President Donald Trump.  "Take a look at what I inherited when I came into office, when I came into office the state of affairs, where we were," Biden said, repeating a familiar complaint by new presidents struggling in their first year of office.  The president spoke about the ongoing migrant and border crisis, his disastrous exit from Afghanistan, and growing Democrat infighting over his multitrillion-dollar agenda at the White House after a speech on coronavirus boosters.

Joe Biden Complains American 'Trillionaires' Not Paying Enough Taxes.  President Joe Biden referred to "trillionaires" not paying taxes on Friday [9/24/2021], even though no American is worth a trillion dollars.  "I'm running to change the dynamic of how the economy grows," Biden said.  "I'm tired of trickle-down.  Trillionaires and billionaires are doing very, very well.  You all report it."  There are currently no trillionaires in the United States.  According to Forbes list of richest Americans, Amazon founder Jeff Bezos is America's wealthiest person with a net worth of $177 billion.  The president spoke about raising taxes on the wealthy after an event promoting coronavirus vaccine booster shots at the White House.  He claimed his policies for a permanent childcare tax credit were not costing the government any money.

Biden preaches 'dignity' at U.N.  President Biden went before the United Nations this week to lecture the world about "dignity."  "Will we affirm and uphold the human dignity and human rights under which nations in common cause more than seven decades ago, formed this institution?" he wondered, just weeks after Afghan civilians tumbled through the skies from a U.S. military transport plane in the wake of Mr. Biden's historically disastrous retreat from Afghanistan.  "People have taken to the streets in every region to demand that their governments address peoples' basic needs, give everyone a fair shot to succeed, and protect their God-given rights," he lectured, weeks after handing Afghanistan back to Taliban terrorists who beat women for not cooking them meals.

If These Latest Revelations Aren't Enough to Arrest Hunter Biden, Then Nothing Is.  The only way the FBI would arrest Hunter Biden is if he took selfies in the Capitol on January 6.  Business Insider recently reported that it acquired two emails (not from the infamous Hunter laptop email chain) from an associate of Hunter Biden, showing that Hunter wanted $2 million a year to free up $15 billion worth of Libyan assets that had been frozen by Obama.  The first email is from January 2015, when Joe Biden was vice president. [...] Hunter Biden has had no artistic training, but his paintings have immediately become some of the most expensive in the art world.  This is reminiscent of the payola scandal, where DJs, no longer allowed to accept money from record companies to play their songs, had their wives sell "paintings" to the record execs.  This is perhaps the most annoying move Hunter has made, as he isn't even trying to hide the fact that he is a crook.  It's out there for everyone to see, and he doesn't care.

Civilization requires deterrence.  These are quite dangerous times because Joe Biden has cut the defense budget.  He withdrew recklessly from Afghanistan, leaving behind American citizens, our Afghan allies and friends, and tens of billions of dollars worth of modern weaponry and equipment.  He angered our NATO partners who were abandoned with some 8,000 troops, in a country which the United States had once implored them to enter.  He has politicized the military into a caricature of an elite woke top brass at odds with traditionalist enlisted soldiers.  The result is that our enemies — Vladimir Putin's Russia, the Chinese Communist apparat, the Iranian theocrats, the lunatic North Koreans — are now pondering whether Biden's reckless laxity is an aberration.  Or is it now characteristic of his administration?

New emails from Hunter Biden business associates reveal he asked for $2 million retainer plus 'success fees' to help them unfreeze $30 billion in Libyan assets while his father was VP.  A pair of emails from business associates of Hunter Biden reveal he offered to help them unfreeze Libyan assets for a $2 million retainer plus 'success fees', while they also discussed their misgivings over his drug and alcohol use.  The email exchanges were between mid-level Democratic donors Sam Jauhari and Sheikh Mohammed al-Rahbani, who in 2015 were both working on behalf of the new Libyan government to free up $30 billion in state foreign assets.  They had been frozen by the Obama administration under the deposed Muammar Gaddafi regime in 2011.  The emails are unrelated to those on his laptop, which outlined a number of his other business dealings.  The computer was found at a repair shop in Delaware.

Biden could owe as much as $500K in back taxes, government report indicates.  Republicans say a new nonpartisan report indicates President Biden improperly avoided paying Medicare taxes before he took office — raising eyebrows and the possibility that he owes the IRS as much as $500,000 in back taxes.  Biden is leading a Democratic push for a $3.5 trillion bill to subsidize child care, education and health care by targeting tax avoidance and raising tax rates on higher incomes so the rich "pay their fair share."  A House Ways and Means Committee draft of the bill would end the accounting trick apparently exploited by Biden and boost IRS funding for audits — but the new report, drafted by the Congressional Research Service and provided to The [New York] Post, suggests Biden owes taxes under current rules, according to the congressman who requested it.

The Bidenization of America.  Bidenization may be defined as a conspicuous and humiliating failure in every major area of government activity.  This catalog of disasters is too well-known to readers to require a long telling but it is notable that there is no precedent for a United States administration being uniformly consistent in turning every major public policy area to disaster.  Everything is going in the wrong direction.  The military high command now stands accused, at least in the press, of acts verging on treason during the late Trump Administration.  The conduct of the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Mark Milley, has incited the inference that he has been grossly insubordinate and in more recent events in Afghanistan indicate that he is also thoroughly incompetent.  If this was entirely the president's gig, some of the senior officers would have resigned.  If it wasn't chiefly the president's gig, he would have fired some of them.

Biden may owe up to $500K in back taxes.  President Biden may have improperly avoided paying Medicare taxes before he took office and could owe the IRS up to $500,000, according to a Congressional Research Service report.  "Joe Biden wants to raise taxes by $2.1 trillion while claiming the rich need to pay their 'fair share.'  But in 2017, multi-millionaire Joe Biden skirted his payroll taxes — the very taxes that fund Medicare and Obamacare," said Rep. Jim Banks, who chairs the conservative Republican Study Committee.  Banks said the report indicated that Biden improperly used "S corporations" while he and first lady Jill Biden raked in over $13 million on speaking fees and book sales in 2017 and 2018, but counted less than $800,000 of it as a salary that could be taxed for Medicare.

Hunter Biden bragged of having 'access to the highest level' in China, email claims.  Hunter Biden boasted of having "access to the highest level" in China, according to emails of his business contacts published on Thursday [9/23/2021].  The alleged claim by President Joe Biden's adult son was discussed in a Jan. 28, 2015, email obtained by Business Insider from Democratic donor Sam Jauhari to Saudi business tycoon Sheikh Mohammed al-Rahbani, as the men tried to put together a plan to free Libya's many billions in frozen funds.

Hunter Biden emails boast ties to White House and China.  Hunter Biden's business contacts touted his access to his father, "State, Treasury," his relationship with then-Secretary of State John Kerry's stepson, as well as his ties to the "highest level" in China, as they weighed whether to work with him on a potential Libya deal in 2015, newly uncovered emails show.  The two emails — published by Insider on Thursday [9/23/2021] — date back to 2015, when Joe Biden was vice president, and reference getting Hunter's help on a deal regarding billions in Libyan assets frozen by the Obama administration.  The emails are unrelated to Hunter's infamous laptop.  In the first email, dated Jan. 28, 2015, Democratic donor Sam Jauhari repeatedly referred to Hunter as "#2 son" — an apparent reference to Joe Biden's VP role at the time — and noted that Hunter had requested a $2 million retainer.

New Proof Emerges of the Biden Family Emails: a Definitive Account of the CIA/Media/BigTech Fraud.  A severe escalation of the war on a free internet and free discourse has taken place over the last twelve months. [...] But the most severe episode of all was the joint campaign — in the weeks before the 2020 election — by the CIA, Big Tech, the liberal wing of the corporate media and the Democratic Party to censor and suppress a series of major reports about then-presidential frontrunner Joe Biden.  On October 14 and then October 15, 2020, The New York Post, the nation's oldest newspaper, published two news reports on Joe Biden's activities in Ukraine and China that raised serious questions about his integrity and ethics: specifically whether he and his family were trading on his name and influence to generate profit for themselves.  The Post said that the documents were obtained from a laptop left by Joe Biden's son Hunter at a repair shop.  From the start, the evidence of authenticity was overwhelming.  The Post published obviously genuine photos of Hunter that were taken from the laptop.  Investigations from media outlets found people who had received the emails in real-time and they compared the emails in their possession to the ones in the Post's archive, and they matched word-for-word.

Confirmation of Hunter Biden's laptop also confirms media's ethics are putrid.  By now, it's easy to blast the establishment media for their dishonesty in handling the story of Hunter Biden's laptop.  Easy, but still necessary.  A new report from Politico shows why.  Top Politico reporter Ben Schreckinger released a book today [9/21/2021] examining the Biden family's "fifty-year rise to power" in which, among other reports about the family's problematic profiteering, Schreckinger confirms the authenticity of some of the emails found on the laptop in question.  This is, of course, about the umpteenth new story supporting the always-obvious legitimacy of the first New York Post reports about the computer.  Still, the venue here is noteworthy.  Politico is one of the "mainstream" publications that joined the frenzy last year hyping the flagrant lie that the laptop story was "Russian disinformation."  Don't hold your breath waiting for any of those media outlets to apologize for their botched coverage, nor for the "more than 50 former senior intelligence officials" who leveled that charge to atone for spreading a falsehood for which there was precisely zero evidence.

Biden exposes his dementia to the world.  Biden cannot function without either a teleprompter or pre-printed cheat sheets, which tell him how to meet and greet his peers.  As Andrea Widburg noted, Biden cannot even so much as say "hello" to Boris Johnson without reading it first from his cheat sheet. [...] Biden made an incredible claim about climate change.  ["] ... And dealing with the gravest threat to humanity we've ever seen which is the whole climate crisis we're gonna we're un we're undergoing that can only be met with global solutions ... ["]  The remark is so stupid that it is actually obscene.  "Climate change," supposedly a greater threat than Nazism.  Or Genghis Khan.  Or the Black Death of 1350, which killed off half the world.  The climate crisis of 536-540 when a volcanic eruption in the East Indies caused a global nuclear winter with mass famine and disease, that's not sufficient for what Biden claims now, either.

Biden 'Incompetent,' 'Unfit' to Serve, Republican Study Committee Chairman Says.  President Joe Biden's administration has been a "constant crisis" and has confirmed the suspicion of many Americans that he is "incompetent" and "unfit" for office, Republican Study Committee Chairman Jim Banks said Tuesday [9/21/2021].  The Indiana congressman cited the escalating crises at the southern border and in Afghanistan as needing oversight hearings in Congress, but he said that wouldn't likely happen under the current Democratic majorities in the House and Senate.  "It seems this administration is a constant crisis, and it seems like every day they create a new crisis," Banks said in an interview with The Daily Signal shortly after a press briefing by the Republican Study Committee, the House caucus of fiscal conservatives.  "It's a fundamental constitutional role of the Congress to provide oversight.  Obviously, the Democrats aren't interested in providing oversight ... of their own president."

Who is Controlling the Biden Presidency?  Just consider for one example concerning Afghanistan:  Why would Biden abandon Bagram Air Force Base?  It is key to all of Southwest Asia — just 400 miles to China and 500 miles to Iran.  It is a vitally important geopolitical, military and intelligence platform with consequences and "reach" that involve far more than just Afghan regional matters.  Who, specifically, made the recommendation to just walk away from Bagram — and then who gave the order?

Biden Tells United Nations Assembly It Will Take "Collective Political Will" To Force The COVID Vaccine into Global Population.  Something uniquely telling about these remarks today before the United Nations.  Something transparently obvious that most will miss.  While bragging about how the United States is the world's leading provider of COVID-19 mRNA gene therapy, Biden notes it will take a "collective act of political will" to deal with a public health emergency.  Think about that carefully.  [Video clip]

Who is controlling the Biden presidency?  [Scroll down]  Here are some potential answers — individually, in combination with key influencers of President Biden, or via convenient, passing, alliance.  Each of these have their own objectives for influencing those closest to President Biden:
  •   Professional Washington political operatives of the Democrat Party and the corresponding leftist "deep state" federal government officials that have incrementally occupied the headquarters of every executive branch department and agency in Washington DC.
  •   Lobbyists representing the military-industrial complex; big pharma; energy interests; and/or foreign powers and multinational corporations.
  •   Big tech and the related Silicon Valley business interests.
  •   Witting and unwitting agents of Communist China and its state "business enterprises" who pretend to operate independent of the government.
  •   Militant leftists from organizations like Antifa, BLM and associated organizations who see an opportunity for unchecked and sometimes subsidized activities purportedly endorsed by the Democrat establishment.
If we suggest that there is a combination or passing alliance of these various interests and groups, each seeking to advance their own agenda behind the official, hollow, front of "President Joe Biden," then we run the risk of being branded conspiracy theorists.  That is both dishonest and unfortunate, because asking questions of, and seeking accountability from, elected officials is not "crazy."  Interest groups do, in fact, lobby presidential advisors, White House staff, and even members of the president's family.

Articles of Impeachment Against Biden Introduced by Four House Republicans.  News articles of impeachment against the perpetually embattled Joe Biden were introduced on Tuesday by Ohio Republican Bob Gibbs over Biden's botched withdrawal from Afghanistan, the border crisis, and his efforts to continue the federal eviction moratorium despite warnings from the Supreme Court.  "I take this seriously.  I don't think it's haphazard.  I'm not trying to get media attention for myself," Gibbs told the Washington Examiner.  "He's done so much damage to this country in less than nine months, which is really scary."  "He's not capable of being commander in chief, and that's obvious by the actions since Day One when he took the presidency back in January," he added.  "Maybe something like this makes the White House think twice before they do some of this nonsense."  Gibbs' articles of impeachment has three other sponsors:  Rep. Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.), Rep. Brian Babin (R-Texas) and Rep. Randy Weber (R-Texas).

The Hunter Biden laptop is confirmed?! Color us shocked!.  In his new book, "The Bidens:  Inside the First Family's Fifty-Year Rise to Power," Politico reporter Ben Schreckinger says that evidence points to Hunter Biden's laptop being legit.  While we appreciate the support, the truth is The [New York] Post's reports always have been true, and it's only because the media wants to protect Joe Biden that they keep referring to the laptop as "unsubstantiated."  Schreckinger notes that "A person who had independent access to Hunter Biden's emails" confirms two of the emails The Post published, including one about a potential deal with China with the line "10 held by H for the big guy?" — that is, Joe Biden.  But Hunter Biden's former business partner Tony Bobulinski already said those emails were authentic — the media just ignored him.  Schreckinger adds that emails released by the Swedish government also match emails from the laptop (Hunter had gotten into a kerfuffle when he was staying in a Swedish embassy building).  That's also been reported.

White House Reporters File Formal Complaint Against Biden For Refusing To Answer Questions.  The White House press pool filed a formal complaint against Democrat President Joe Biden for refusing to answer questions from American media about the multiple crises that have erupted under his regime.  The complaint came as Biden met with British Prime Minister Boris Johnson in the Oval Office, which comes after Biden angered the British with his disastrous pullout from Afghanistan.  "[President] Biden and British PM [Boris Johnson] meet to discuss pandemic, trade and other issues," CBS News reporter Ed O'Keefe tweeted.  "Johnson took 3 questions.  White House aides shouted down U.S. attempts to ask questions.  I asked Biden about southern border and we couldn't decipher what he said."

Independent Source Confirms Authenticity of Hunter Biden Emails.  Two crucial emails included among the material reportedly taken from Hunter Biden's laptop last year are genuine, according to new evidence presented in the book The Bidens by Politico reporter Ben Schreckinger.  A 2015 email from Ukrainian businessman Vadym Pozharsky thanking Hunter Biden for "giving an opportunity to meet your father and spent [sic] some time together" is genuine, according to a person described in Politico Playbook as having "independent access" to Hunter's emails.  Pozharsky was an adviser to Burisma Holdings, the Ukrainian natural gas company on whose board Hunter Biden sat while his father was vice president.

Did Biden's Political Needs Lead to Tragically Mistaken Drone Strike?  I don't think there's any doubt that the wars fought under Presidents Bush (43) and Obama resulted in U.S. forces unintentionally killing innocent civilians.  This might well have been the case under President Trump too, despite the scaled-back and changed nature of his war efforts.  However, the unintentional killing of innocents in that recent Afghanistan drone strike, as we were completing our evacuation of Americans and Afghans, is different in at least two respects.  The first is that accidental killings under Biden's immediate predecessors were carried out as we were trying to win.  By contrast, Biden's killings occurred after we had given up.  Our troops had already pulled out of Afghanistan and the evacuation of civilians, such as it was, had just about been completed. [...] But there's a second distinction.  This particular attack might well have resulted from Joe Biden attempting to save a little face over our disastrous exit from Afghanistan and, in particular, the killing of American forces at the Kabul airport.

Poll: Only 49% Think Joe Biden Is Mentally Stable Enough to Be President.  Only 49 percent of registered voters think President Joe Biden has enough "mental soundness" to serve as president, a Sunday [9/19/2021] Fox News poll revealed.  Respondents were asked, "Do you think Joe Biden has the mental soundness to serve effectively as president, or not?"  While 49 percent said yes, 48 percent said no.

Joe Biden is in way over his head.  The number, variety, magnitude, and speed of recent national and global crises have all clearly and without any doubt demonstrated that Joe Biden and his administration are simply in way over their heads and way beyond their abilities to understand and to respond to these events appropriately and intelligently.  [List of examples.]

Biden vacations at [his] Delaware beach house after [a] week of heavy losses.  President Biden took major hits this week, from the Pentagon confirming that a "tragic mistake" led to 10 civilians in Afghanistan dying in a drone strike, to the Food and Drug Administration rejecting his vaccine booster proposal, with much of the news breaking as the president headed to the beach for vacation.  "So the U.S. drone strike did NOT kill any ISIS-K but did kill 10 innocent civilians, including 7 children.  Unbelievable.  The Biden administration is a sad, tragic mess and an utter embarrassment on the world stage!," Trump-era White House press secretary and Fox News contributor Kayleigh McEnany tweeted on Friday.  U.S. Marine Corps Gen. Kenneth McKenzie, commander of U.S. Central Command, told reporters on Friday that an Aug. 29 drone strike targeting ISIS actually killed 10 civilians in Afghanistan, not terrorists.

Treason. There, Somebody Said It.  The actions of the current administration consistently undermine the welfare of the American people, they are endangering American welfare, and they have snuffed out American lives.  There is no other word for it.  This administration has committed treason.  Multiple fronts in multiple ways, multiple times. [...] At almost every turn this administration seeks to undermine the health, life and welfare of every American.  They do so through both what they choose to take actions on, and what they choose not to deal with.  The outcome of what they are working towards is adding up to a nation that looks like anything but America.  So what do you call it, when the goal is to harm the rights of the average American, defy the principles of our national laws and systems of justice, and implement policy or executive orders that erase our national identity, national priorities, and national security?  What is the term that adequately explains why the administration just this last week revoked life saving monoclonal antibodies from states who need the life saving therapy the most?

Biden Says Something Completely Ridiculous, but Doesn't Even Realize It.  It must be a tough thing to have the responsibility every day to cover for Joe Biden, never knowing when he's going to say something awful, commit a horrible gaffe, or lapse into incoherence.  Talk about an ulcer-producing job.  As I wrote earlier, White House staffers are reportedly doing the best they can to build a "wall" around him and "cocoon him," so they can prevent him from gaffing — but there's only so much you can do, when you have to throw him out in public all the time.  Biden should be retired somewhere, living out his days in peace, but for the fact that some folks want to use him to hold onto power for the Democrats.  So they have to deal with the whole, flawed package.

Joe Biden goes to the beach.  Joe Biden has a creepy way of making himself scarce whenever there's a crisis.  He gets a lot of crises. [...] The border is being flooded by 15,000 illegal migrants massing under a bridge near Del Rio, Texas in the biggest migrant massing in U.S. history.  For the Border Patrol, it's a disaster. [...] A very important ally has cut ties based on Joe Biden's mismanagement of a new alliance set up between Britain, France and Australia, which left France entirely out of the loop, and out a $50 billion defense contract, too, with the news sprung on them at the spur of the moment after it happened. [...] There's also Afghanistan fallout and it's ugly.  Turns out the Pentagon admitted that the ten "terrorists" they fired a rocket on in retribution for the suicide attack at Kabul airport, which killed 13 American service members and around 200 Afghanis, was a "mistake." [...] Here's another crisis:  Days before Biden was set to foist COVID booster vaccines onto the public, Biden's FDA flatly refused to recommend boosters at all as a response to containing COVID. That signals a rebellion over Biden's politicization of the COVID crisis to his partisan ends.

One stunning afternoon:  Setbacks imperil Biden's reset.  It was an hour President Joe Biden would no doubt like to forget.  On Friday [9/17/2021], the Pentagon acknowledged that a drone strike in Afghanistan killed 10 civilians, including seven children, not terrorists.  A panel advising the Food and Drug Administration voted to not recommend COVID booster shots for all Americans over 16, dashing an administration hope.  And France announced it was recalling its ambassador to the U.S. out of anger for being cut out of a secret nuclear submarine deal Biden had struck with the United Kingdom and Australia.

The Editor says...
Yes, it was "an hour President Joe Biden would no doubt like to forget."  And he probably has already.

With his Approval Rating in Free Fall, Biden Takes a Long Weekend Vacation.  The Taliban owns Afghanistan where Americans are trapped, the U.S. debt is nearing catastrophic levels, COVID is on the rise even with large amounts of vaccinated Americans, the border is overrun by illegals and President Joe Biden thinks it is a perfect time to relax.  According to the White House schedule, President Biden will be spending the long weekend at his vacation home in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware.

The Editor says...
Joe Biden is the only one enjoying a "long weekend" as far as I am aware.

No Supporters, Not Even Jill, Greet 81 Million Vote Getter Joe Biden as He Returns Home for Rehoboth Beach, Delaware Vacation.  Joe Biden returned to the sound of silence to his home state of Delaware Friday for a long weekend at his Rehoboth Beach vacation home — no supporters, not even wife Dr. Jill, were there to greet him, according to videos taken of his arrival.

Joe Biden is never going to answer any such questions, no matter how many there are.
10 Unanswered Questions Biden Must Answer.  CENTCOM commander Gen. Frank McKenzie apologized Friday after an investigation revealed that the U.S had killed an innocent man, Zemari Ahmadi — and nine other civilians, including seven children — rather than ISIS-K terrorists Aug. 29.  Though McKenzie accepted responsibility for what he called a "tragic mistake," he did not resign.  Instead, he provided an explanation of the circumstances for the strike, suggesting that the Pentagon believes it was legal under international law.  McKenzie told the media that the military had acted on intelligence that a "white Toyota Corolla" — one of the most common automobiles — would mount an attack.  At no point did the military know who was driving the targeted vehicle.

Something wicked this way comes — the midterms will be a Democrat apocalypse.  The Democrats lost 64 House seats in the 2010 midterm when Barack Obama was president and 54 seats in the 1994 midterm when Bill Clinton was president.  That's bad. [...] This time, the Dems don't even have politically competent Obama or Clinton.  They instead are headed by a stupid, senile, hair-plugged, incompetent, tongue-tied, foolish President Lite whom Obama warned we should "never underestimate" in his ability to "[mess] things up."  His son and business partner is a criminal, drug addicted life and laptop loser who videotapes his encounters of the prostitute kind while parlaying dad's political connections into a lucrative family racket that nets "10% for The Big Guy" according to his own emails that the FBI authenticates but the Democrats at the New York Times, which is everyone at the New York Times, dismiss as "unsubstantiated."

Because They Are Evil.  There are a great many things coming from Biden, Fauci, the CDC, the State Department, the military, the Justice Department, and basically the Deep State that make no sense.  From Biden and the Deep State, we are getting executive orders, mandates, guidelines, decisions, policies, and edicts that just do not make any sort of intellectual sense.  It is not just a difference of opinion.  It is not just different politics or a different point of view.  Decisions, guidelines, policies, and proposed laws are coming out of Washington D.C., Biden, and the Deep State that one just can't figure out in an intellectual, factual, common-sense sort of way.  The only way to explain what is coming from the placeholder at the White House and the Deep State elites is that they are just evil.  They are doing what they're doing because they are evil.  No other answer makes sense.

Twitter censored Hunter Biden laptop stories after 'rumors' from US intelligence warned of 'a hack-and-leak operation' that would 'involve' him.  An executive with Twitter told the Federal Election Commission (FEC) that the social media company blocked New York Post's reporting on leaked emails from Hunter Biden's laptop after hearing rumors from US intelligence officials that it would result in Biden getting hacked.  The head of Twitter's Site Integrity Team, Yoel Roth, said the company's decision to block access to New York Post's reporting in October of 2020 was justified because of the information they allegedly received from US intelligence officials, according to the Washington Free Beacon.  In a complaint filed with the FEC by a conservative group, Twitter was accused of giving an illegal campaign contribution to Joe Biden's 2020 presidential campaign by blocking the public access to the articles and withholding information from voters in a way that supported Biden's bid for the presidency.

Biden's latest former job of which there is no record:  Lumberjack.  On Monday [9/13/2021], Biden added another line to his resumé:  He was a lumberjack, or at least was offered a job as one fresh out of college.  He announced this newly minted biographical datum while in Boise, where he had traveled, the Daily Mail reports, to visit the National Interagency Fire Center — the federal agency responsible for coordinating the states' response to wildfires.  The lumberjack claim came up in the context of schmoozing the audience about what a beautiful state Idaho is and how he had once planned to live there because of the breathtaking scenery.  (He's still campaigning for president!)

Surrendering Afghanistan to the Taliban:  Who Is Managing Biden?  The last eight months have been a rolling U.S. disaster domestically and internationally.  We have witnessed the collapse of U.S, political and moral will to continue in Afghanistan and pretty much anywhere else in the world.  Given the daily headlines of the last two weeks, what is the Biden administration's message for Israel, Taiwan, Ukraine, and South Korea?  Not to mention, Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador and Mexico?  The most disturbing part is that apparently SOMEONE in the US government — or someone whose hands are on the levers of the organs of the state — wants it exactly this way.  It is not random, an accident, or a mistake.  "They" want a return to the "managed decline" that served as the hallmark of the Obama administration's eight-year-long "fundamental transformation" of America.  Given President Biden's apparent decline in mental acuity, we are compelled to conclude that whoever is REALLY in power in the United States is not Biden.

Biden's Presidency Is Already A Total Disaster, And It's All His Own Fault.  The first seven months of Joe Biden's presidency have been fraught with crises.  First it was the coronavirus pandemic and the vaccine rollout.  Then it was the border crisis.  Then it was the economy.  And now Afghanistan, where the Taliban are now reportedly hanging people by the neck from U.S.-supplied Blackhawk helicopters, and the U.S. withdrawal has left behind hundreds of Americans and perhaps thousands of Green Card holders in what now amounts to the largest hostage crisis in American history.  The administration is stumbling from one disaster to the next, with no end in sight and public opinion plummeting on nearly every major issue.  In each case, the disaster has been entirely of the Biden administration's own making.  Events are not overtaking Biden, his own rank incompetence is.

Something Else [is] Missing.  On September 9th, President Joe Biden made the announcement that all employers with more than 100 employees would be required to enforce a worker vaccine mandate. [...] Almost a week later, and that's the sum total of everything about the biggest economic and workforce disruption in the history of the nation.  That one paragraph posted on September 10th.  Why is this important?  Well, the U.S. Department of Labor website has ZERO mentions of this national mandate.  ZERO, nothing, nada, zilch.  Looking at the OSHA COVID information portal, used by employers and legal execs, will show you the exact same result.  Nothing.  Notice there's no date for DoL or OSHA delivery of any employer guidance or details.  Nothing.  Think about this.  This is the largest nationwide change to employment eligibility requirement in U.S. history.  Nothing else is even close; and yet, if you didn't watch the Biden announcement or read the media discussion about the Biden announcement, you wouldn't be able to find a single detail about it — anywhere.  This is not normal; not even close to normal, even for the federal government.

Biden's Feed [is] Cut As He Appears To Go Off Script.  The White House killed video feed of Joe Biden as he appeared to go off script.  Biden's speech was abruptly cut off on Monday in Idaho amid his rocky speech about so-called climate change.  The White house has developed a reputation for cutting off video feed during Biden's briefings without public explanation.  This time, the feed was cut as Biden tried to answer an unapproved question.  "Can I ask you a question?" Biden stated.  "One of things that I have been working on with some others is..." *screen goes blank*

The next day...
Sen. Risch Grills Blinken Over Who Cuts Biden Off At The White House.  Republican Idaho Sen. James Risch grilled Secretary of State Antony Blinken during Tuesday's hearing about who is "in charge" of President Joe Biden at the White House and specifically asked who has the authority to "push the button" and cut off Biden's microphone.  "Somebody in the White House has authority to press the button and stop the president, cut off the president's speaking ability and sound.  Who is that person?" Risch asked Blinked during the hearing.  "There is no such person," Blinken responded, saying Biden "speaks very clearly and very deliberately for himself.  No one else does."  "This is a puppeteer act, if you would, and we need to know who's in charge and who is making the decisions," Risch said.

The Editor says...
"'There is no such person,' Blinken responded," in an act which can only be described as lying to Congress, because everybody in America (except Mr. Blinken) has seen the video, and it is reasonable to presume that Mr. Biden didn't cut off his own audio and video.  My perception is that someone thought Mr. Biden was about to blurt out something confidential, so the media crew cut his mike just to be safe.  There's nothing sinister about that, so it should have been easy for Mr. Blinken to have explained it away — if he had come to the hearing fully prepared.

Uh oh:  Genealogist discovers Joe Biden's slave-owning ancestors.  Genealogist Alexander Bannerman says Biden has "not a lot of ancestors, and not a lot of slaves" in his family tree, according to a forthcoming book.  Yup, our house-plant-in-chief has ancestors who apparently owned slaves.

'Most Popular President in History' Gets Swarmed, Booed By Huge Group of Trump Supporters in Liberal California.  President Joe Biden, who is dubbed as the "most popular president in history" doesn't seem to be all that popular considering [derisive] chants seem to break out at every major event and he also gets booed most times he is seen in public.  While visiting the liberal state of California on Monday [9/13/2021], President Biden was met by more than 1,000 Trump supporters who were carrying [derisive] signs outside of Long Beach City College.  Biden was visiting the state to campaign for Democrat California Governor Gavin Newsom who is facing a recall election.  Biden's motorcade was mobbed and booed by angry protesters.  [Video clip]

Secretary of State Antony Blinken fails to say whether he has been interviewed by FBI over Hunter Biden [...] in congressional hearing on Afghanistan.  Secretary of State Antony Blinken faced at least one question he was not expecting when he appeared before Congress on Monday to discuss Afghanistan:  Had he handed over documents about Hunter Biden and his dealings in Ukraine to the FBI?  Republican Rep. Scott Perry used his five minutes of time to quiz the nation's top diplomat on what he knew about an investigation into the president's wayward son.  The result was a witness who struggled to find the words to respond.

They Want You to Hate Each Other.  Everything Joe Biden and his team are doing right now depends on the American people despising one another. [...] All they can do is distract from failure with oppression, hoping as they do that oppression will find grateful welcome among those whom they are not currently characterizing as subhuman undesirables.  And so they need us to hate each other.  This was the gamble Biden made with his venomous speech last Thursday [9/9/2021], when he announced his intention to conscript business owners and make them bully hesitant workers into being vaccinated against COVID-19.  This obscene decree was accompanied by a harangue against "the unvaccinated."  "We've been patient, but our patience is wearing thin," the President spat at tens of millions of American citizens, as if he were their governess and not their employee.  "We're going to protect vaccinated workers from unvaccinated co-workers."  Never mind that this statement is practically an advertisement against the effectiveness of the vaccine.  It is above all an invitation to pure spite.

Lara Logan:  Biden Regime Ordered OSHA 'To Start Hiding Information From the Public to Promote the COVID Vaccine'.  How can you tell when there's a conspiracy afoot?  Government agencies start making changes to long-standing common sense protocols in order to promote a narrative or push an agenda.  Such is the case of the Biden regime's handling adverse reaction reports pertaining to the so-called Covid-19 "vaccines."  [Video clip]

The White House censors Joe Biden.  Last week, word emerged from the White House that Biden's own staff can't stand to listen to him.  It's not that they don't agree with his policies[, ...] it's that he's such a verbal loose cannon that they shudder when they hear him speak off the cuff.  Yesterday [9/13/2021], the White House staffers paying attention to his answers about western wildfires were so worried about where his mouth was taking him that they pulled the plug on him in mid-sentence. [...] Puppet politicians are all well and good when they take their orders and do as they're told.  They become a problem either when they try to seize real power or when they become so verbally incontinent that they can no longer be trusted to stick to the script and speak only when their strings are pulled.

Joe and the Football.  The football, or Presidential Emergency Satchel, has existed since the Eisenhower administration.  The football is carried by a military aide and should accompany the president at all times.  The football gives the president the ability to order a nuclear strike regardless of his location. [...] On his person, the president is supposed to carry a plastic card nicknamed "the biscuit."  If the president issues a nuclear strike order, alphanumeric codes on the biscuit will authenticate his identity.  In other administrations the biscuit and the president have become separated.  President Carter left his biscuit in a suit coat that was sent to the cleaners.  After President Reagan was shot, his card ended up inside one of his shoes at the hospital.  President Clinton, in his typically irresponsible manner, lost his card and didn't tell the Pentagon for several months (thankfully the Cold War was over).  To foil an interloper, valid as well as invalid codes reside on the biscuit.  The president must memorize the location of the valid codes.  The current president could have trouble remembering the correct location.  Perhaps Dr. Jill helps him with that.

Joe Biden's great-great-great-grandfather owned two slaves in Maryland, new book reveals.  President Joe Biden has often shown pride in his Irish Catholic roots, but on another side of his ancestry, the progressive commander-in-chief's family lineage can be traced back to America's shameful past of slave ownership.  Jesse Robinett, Biden's great-great-great grandfather, owned two enslaved people in Maryland in the 1800s, according to a Politico story adapted from a bombshell new book, The Bidens.  Biden shares an apparent connection with Robinett through his full name — Joseph Robinette Biden Jr.

White House abruptly cuts feed of Biden mid-sentence as he asks question at wildfires briefing.  The White House abruptly cut the feed of President Biden's briefing on wildfires with federal and state officials.  During Monday's [9/13/2021] visit to Boise, Idaho, Biden received a briefing about the ongoing wildfires that have plagued several states out west.  While Biden spoke for much of the briefing, at one point he said he wanted to hear more from George Geissler of the National Association of State Foresters.

Cognitive decline: the mainstream media is still protecting Biden.  I am not a doctor and I have never met Joe Biden.  But even two years ago, as he announced his run for the presidency, it was clear, to phrase it as Mark Levin did, that "the spin was off of his fastball."  Of course Biden, always a mediocrity, never had much of a fastball.  And of course to prevent a Bernie Sanders Democratic nomination and a likely Donald Trump victory, US Rep. James Clyburn led the rush to annoint Biden as their only hope to defeat Trump.  And Biden campaigned, sort of, for the presidency from what Sean Hannity called "his basement bunker."  Greg Ganske, an MD and former Republican member of Congress, knows Biden, In an op-ed for the Des Moines Register, he decried Biden's mental decline. [...] Biden is a confused and tired old man — but only conservative pundits are noticing that.

Joe Biden isn't the person I knew in Congress.  He should get cognitive testing, with the result made public.  Why am I concerned about Biden's mental acuity?  During the campaign, he said, "I think we can win back the House" when it was already in his party's hands.  Super Tuesday became Super Thursday; he forgot the words of the Declaration of Independence, "We hold these truths to be self-evident.  All men and women are created, by the, you know, you know the thing."  He even misstated what office he was running for in South Carolina:  "My name's Joe Biden.  I'm the Democratic candidate for the Senate."  He repeatedly got confused about which state he was in, he called his son the attorney general of the United States and confused British Prime Minister Theresa May with Margaret Thatcher. [...] It's gotten worse since the election.  In a CNN interview, he opined, "Um, you know there's a, uh, during World War II, uh you know, where Roosevelt came up with a thing, that uh, you know, was totally different, than a, than the, he called it, you know, the WWII, he had the War Production Board."  In March he forgot the name of his Defense Secretary, Lloyd Austin, at a White House event, calling the Pentagon chief "the guy who runs that outfit over there."

Report: Book Reveals Biden Family Corruption.  A new book released Monday indicates Biden family corruption schemes sought to enrich son Hunter and brother Jim Biden while Joe Biden was the ranking member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.  Author of The Bidens:  Inside the First Family's Fifty-Year Rise to Power, Ben Schreckinger, was told by one of Jim's former business partners, "Jim's job is to ensure the lifestyle is good for the family."  The method of doing so reportedly entailed Hunter and Jim acquiring a hedge fund, Paradigm Global Advisors, which was founded and run by [...] James Park.

Biden Caught Telling Another Whopper, Falsely Claims His "First Job Offer" Came From a Lumber Company in Boise.  Biden traveled to Boise, Idaho on Monday [9/13/2021] as part of his visit to the western part of the US.  Joe Biden told a bizarre story about how he almost moved to Idaho decades ago because he was offered a job at a lumber company.  Biden, who is only a legend in his own mind, said he used to tell the late Idaho Senator Frank Church about his desire to move to the Gem State.  "I used to tell Frank Church this, I got a — my first job offer, where I wanted — my deceased wife and I wanted to move to Idaho because — not a joke — it's such a beautiful, beautiful state.  And I interviewed for a job at Boise Cascade," Biden said. [...] The New York Post reached out to to Boise Cascade and there is no record of Biden's story being true.

New book reveals how Biden's family used his position for profit.  In January 2006, Hunter Biden was a lobbyist for William Oldaker, who had served as a campaign counsel and treasurer to Joe Biden.  Jim Biden, Joe's younger brother, called his friend Anthony Lotito for a favor.  Hunter needed a new job.  Joe was getting ready to run for the Democratic presidential nomination, and his son's work for a Washington lobbying firm would be a problem.  At least that was what Lotito later alleged in court filings.  Jim and Hunter denied that a call like that ever took place.  One way or another, the three of them decided in early 2006 to get into the hedge-fund business.  Owning a hedge fund in New York in the years before the financial crisis was like being a sea captain in 18th-century Nantucket.  It was the thing to do.  They set their eyes on Paradigm Global Advisors, founded by James Park, who was married to the daughter of religious leader Sun Myung Moon.

Biden's Deflection Mandate.  President Biden's Thursday speech to the American people about "the battle against COVID-19" had little to do with public health.  Its purpose was to distract us from the unmitigated disaster he created in Afghanistan.  What better way to accomplish this goal than to issue an imperial edict that would outrage anyone with a rudimentary understanding of the Constitution?  Neither Biden nor any federal agency has the power to impose a vaccine mandate on private sector businesses or workers.  If Biden fails to grasp this, the people who actually run his administration get it, but they want nothing more from Thursday's speech than a change of subject.  Moreover, after a brief spasm of genuine journalism, the legacy media has reverted to slavish repetition of White House talking points regarding the Americans left for dead in Afghanistan and the history of "America's longest war."

Joe Biden Goes Golfing While Americans Left Behind in Afghanistan.  President Joe Biden returned to the golf course on Sunday, even though Americans are still left stranded in Afghanistan.  The president traveled to Fieldstone Golf Club in Delaware on Sunday where he planned to golf with former Sen. Ted Kaufman.  Since concluding his disastrous evacuation of troops out of Afghanistan, Biden has tried to shift the narrative away from the hundreds of Americans that were left behind.

Joseph R. Biden:  Hollow Man.  Just like a Hollywood set, Joe Biden is all façade and no substance.  He's a hollow man.  The Biden façade has been carefully crafted over decades by himself, his enablers, and the propaganda ministry. [...] The real Joe Biden is something very different from what one sees from the outside.  He is not the kind old uncle.  He is short-tempered and nasty when confronted with anything other than fawning adoration. [...] Joe's whole career has been an exercise in dishonesty.  We don't need to examine his 48 years on the government dole to get a sense of it.  We need only listen to what he's said in the past two weeks. [...] In addition to being a proven liar, Biden is perhaps the most corrupt politician to ever occupy the Oval Office.  While vice president, he had a Ukrainian prosecutor fired to stop an investigation of his son, Hunter — and bragged about it to an audience.  As revealed by Hunter's abandoned laptop, we now know that "the Big Guy" was getting a 10-percent cut of Hunter's ill-gotten proceeds.  The mob call that "wetting his beak."  Lunch Bucket Joe's net worth is estimated to be 9 million dollars.  Exactly how did someone who has spent his entire career on the government payroll acquire such wealth?

COVID Rules and Regulations are the Means to The End, They are Not The End Itself.  The announcement by the Obama Chicago Marxist group, through Joe Biden, will never succeed.  The U.S. Constitution does not provide the executive with the power they are attempting to exert; not even close.  Their arguments are weak, make no sense, are not framed in legal standing, and are easily dispatched in the courts.  The carve-outs themselves nullify most of their predictable arguments.  If the vaccine is required as a matter of urgent public health — under an emergency declaration — then why are any exemptions afforded, or groups exempted. [...] Joe Biden is a disposable front-man for the people organizing the objective, so they don't have to worry about political damage.  The Biden term was designed for a single set of four-year rapid advancements for the Communist, Marxist and Socialist agenda.  The Biden poll ratings and favorability, or lack therein, do not factor into the plan of action; those issues are irrelevant.

Against Biden's Mandates.  We oppose President Biden's lawless and authoritarian new mandates announced yesterday.  We also denounce his divisive rhetoric toward unvaccinated Americans, his reckless antipathy for federalism, and his threats to usurp state governors.  Contra Mr. Biden, this is entirely about freedom and personal choice.  His proposed executive orders represent nothing less than centralized tyranny, whereby the federal government operates under no legal constraints.  This is government anarchy.  The announced policies — including mandated vaccines for private employers of a certain size, mandated vaccines for all healthcare workers, and mandated vaccines for federal employees — are wildly extraconstitutional and far beyond any executive power imagined in the Constitution.  Of course, the same is true for OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration), which (since its magical creation in 1971) laughably claims jurisdiction over working conditions across millions of private US businesses operating on private property.  OSHA is the bludgeon Mr. Biden intends to use against business owners to dictate their arrangements with employees by requiring covid vaccines.

Open Letter to the Tyrant.  Some of the people may have voted for Joe Biden.  No one voted for mandatory vaccines.  No representative of the people so voted.  It was never put up for a vote.  It was ordered.  That is not America, anymore.  Americans are thus relieved of any obligation to obey.  The time has come to resist.  Not with violence.  With something more powerful.  Refusal.  We will not submit to this.  It is not negotiable.  You have neither the authority nor the right to order people to submit to any medical procedure, to take any drug.  To force people to submit their children for medical procedures and to take drugs of dubious palliative value that are known to cause harm.  We are not livestock, to be ear-tagged and injected at your pleasure.  And America is not a hospital.  The tyrant who now occupies the White House believes he can force his will upon you by threatening to remove your livelihood, using threats of financial ruin applied to employers by his regulatory apparat.

Biden Declares Himself Medical Dictator, Threatens to Nullify States' Rights and Coerce the Entire Population into Taking Deadly Vaccine Jabs Against Their Will.  We should be celebrating this moment of clarity, for Biden's audacious actions have just turned half of America into a powerful new vaccine resistance movement.  As the following map shows, state leaders in about half the states have openly declared their resistance against Biden's authoritarian power grab.  Many states have announced their intent to file lawsuits, and Texas Governor Abbott has already issued an executive order protecting medical choice for Texans. [...] As part of his dictatorial decree, fake president Joe Biden declared that he would remove governors from power if they don't comply with his vaccine mandates.  This is, of course, an act of treason and war against the United States of America, and it opens the window for the white hats in the US military to remove Biden from office and declare his "rule" to be an unconstitutional occupation.  From Biden:  "If they'll not help — if these governors won't help us beat the pandemic, I'll use my power as President to get them out of the way."  Of course, "get them out of the way" means Biden plans to try to arrest and remove the governors, then rule of America as a dictatorial tyrant.

Joe yelling inappropriately
Biden Morphed Into 'Old Man Yelling at Clouds' During Ground Zero Remembrance.  Joe Biden attended the 9/11 memorial on the 20th anniversary of the attack at Ground Zero this morning with his wife, Jill, the Clintons, and the Obamas. [...] But there was a picture of his visit there that had everyone talking.  It wasn't a contemplative picture during those solemn moments.  It was an odd picture that clashed with the solemnity of the occasion, of him taking down his mask and yelling at someone.  [Tweet]  It's not clear who he was yelling at.  But it is clear what he did, that he took down his mask in the midst of a crowd and yelled, obviating the alleged purpose of the mask.  It's something he's done before, even taking down his mask to cough into his empty hand, and then placing his hands on a podium and putting his mask back up.  It's like he forgot the script that he's supposed to be delivering on, when he does these things.  And it tells us that someone really doesn't believe in its worth when they do these things.  It's a picture that completely sums up Biden in one shot:  empty gestures and incoherence.

Washington D.C. Archbishop Unleashes on Fake Catholic Joe Biden Over His Support For Abortion.  Archbishop Cardinal Wilton Gregory is not happy with self-proclaimed catholic and president Joe Biden who recently said that he does not agree that "life begins at conception," a direct opposition of the Catholic church.  "I respect those who believe life begins at the moment of conception," Biden said, according to Catholic News Agency.  "I don't agree, but I respect that.  I'm not going to impose that on people."  The appalling statement by Biden is a direct contradiction of the Catholic Church's teaching on life and conception.

Turley says Ron Klain's vaccine retweet is legal issue for Biden: 'Breathtakingly daft'.  Constitutional scholar Jonathan Turley called White House chief of staff Ron Klain's recent retweet appearing to praise the Biden administration for executing the "ultimate work-around" for President Biden's recent vaccine mandate "breathtakingly daft."  "The retweet was breathtakingly daft on the eve of litigation over the order.  It is reminiscent of President Biden admitting that his own White House counsel and their preferred legal experts all said that the eviction moratorium extension was likely unconstitutional," Turley told Fox News on Friday [9/10/2021].  "Courts will now be asked to ignore the admission and uphold a self-admitted evasion of constitutional limits," Turley added.  The "problem is that the thing being 'worked around' is the Constitution."

Joe Biden Marks 20th Anniversary of 9/11 Criticizing 'Dark Forces' in America Against 'Peaceful Religion' of Islam.  President Joe Biden marked the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks by criticizing Americans for the anti-Muslim anger that occurred in the United States after the attacks took place.  "We also witnessed the dark forces of human nature.  Fear and anger.  Resentment and violence against Muslim-Americans — true and faithful followers of a peaceful religion," Biden said in a prerecorded video published for the occasion.  The president said that the principle of "unity" in the country was endangered by the attacks but ultimately prevailed.

Say Hello to My Little Friend -- Mandated Vaccines.  Biden stopped eating ice cream long enough to threaten non-vaxxed Americans.  Apparently, Joe is losing patience with us deplorable Americans who have been avoiding the injection and says we better watch out because he's done being Mr. Nice guy.  Nope, he doesn't mean you 640,000 U.S. Postal workers.  He won't force them to get vaccinated but (fingers crossed) he really hopes that they will-pretty please.  Nope, he doesn't mean all of the illegal immigrants he invited who walked across our southern border and were shuffled to secret locations around the country.  Nope, he's not threatening the Afghanistan refugees who may or may not have COVID, or other infectious diseases and were also shuffled to secret locations in American cities around the country.  Joe's running the largest hide and seek game in history.  Can you find the refugees?  Come on man, they're hiding in plain sight.  Boy oh boy, Biden has really been busy secretly transporting people under the cover of darkness by plane, train, and buses.  No wonder Biden is tired and must retreat to Wilmington for a nap and some ice cream.  Biden was visibly angry when he recently faced the nation and declared that his "patience is wearing thin."  He blamed everyone but himself for the debacles he orchestrated during his short tenure in the Oval Office.

White House Jen Psaki Announces Biden Will Use Full Weight of Federal Regulatory Agencies to Require Vaccination.  Here it comes:  the Jab is the priority.  It has little to do with public health, and everything to do with control toward the "Build Back Better" society.  Earlier today [9/9/2021], Jen Psaki was asked if the Biden administration was going to use regulatory agencies to push and enforce mandatory vaccinations in the workplace.  Her response was a direct, "Yes, stay tuned".  CTH has been warning about this likelihood since December of 2020.  The continuum is following exactly as one would suspect.  Establish the fear, then start pushing the solution. [...] Joe Biden is a disposable front-man for the people organizing the objective, so they don't have to worry about political damage.  The Biden term was designed for a single set of four-year rapid advancements for the Democrat Socialist agenda.  The Biden poll ratings and favorability, or lack therein, do not factor into the plan of action; those issues are irrelevant.

Biden's Sweeping Vaccination Mandates.  Joe Biden today [9/9/2021] announced sweeping new coronavirus vaccine mandates of the kind he and key administration officials have previously said they would not impose.  Biden will require that all federal employees be vaccinated, with no option for those who prefer to be regularly tested instead. [...] Much of the instant commentary I've seen about this decision views it as an attempt to deflect attention from the Afghanistan debacle.  That may be part of what's going on.  But the main reason for the policy is that the surge of the coronavirus constitutes a massive threat to Biden's presidency and to his political party.  Biden campaigned relentlessly on the pandemic.  He blamed Donald Trump for it, ridiculously, and pledged to end the pandemic.  He expected the vaccines that were about to become available (thanks in part to Trump) to do the trick, and he expected the end of the pandemic and the resulting economic surge to ensure his popularity.  It hasn't worked out that way, and voters are holding Biden responsible.  That's why he has reversed course on vaccine mandates.  It's an act of desperation.

Biden Has Completed the Most Lucrative and Devastating Treason In World History.  America has been sold to the Chinese.  This explains stolen elections and the disaster in Afghanistan.  The treason of Biden is unparalleled.  Follow this story as you will see how America has been sold out to Chinese interests.  This connects most of the dots.  On the industrial/economic front, lithium is the new oil.  The most important use of lithium is in rechargeable batteries for mobile phones, laptops, digital cameras and electric vehicles.  Lithium is also used in some non-rechargeable batteries for things like heart pacemakers, toys and clocks.  Big Pharma is happy because lithium has profound and far-reaching impacts on many medical conditions ranging from depression to thyroid to heart health.  Did I mention the military applications of lithium?  Every weapon system requires a battery to provide electrical power for various functions and this applies, without exception to all weapons systems and supporting transportation systems in military.

One Line From Biden's Vaccine Mandate Speech Should Make 'Free People' Very Uncomfortable.  During his speech announcing expansive new vaccine mandates on Thursday, President Biden took aim at Republican governors who have continued to value freedom in their responses to Covid-19, threatening to use his "powers" to "get them out."  After blasting the nearly 80 million Americans who have not gotten vaccinated, the president turned his ire to GOP governors, particularly Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and Texas Gov. Greg Abbott.  "To make matters worse, there are elected officials actively working to undermine the fight against COVID-19," he said.  "Instead of encouraging people to get vaccinated and mask up, they're ordering mobile morgues for the unvaccinated dying from COVID in their communities.

Biden's vaccine mandate speech!  Thursday [9/9/2021], President Biden delivered the most insulting, contemptuous and divisive speech by a president in US history.  We all know by now that Joe Biden does not care one iota about the American people.  His life's work has been dedicated to enriching his own family, no more, no less.  And like the rest of the left, he has contempt for any and all who dare to disagree with him.  His is the most destructive administration in history.  He set out to undo the many successes of President Trump and he has done exactly that:  opened the border to all comers, ended our energy independence, destroyed the economy and job market and instigated the worst inflation since the Carter administration.  His catastrophically idiotic withdrawal from Afghanistan has awakened previously unengaged citizens to the depth and breadth of Biden's malicious incompetence.

Joe Biden Threatens the Unvaccinated and Announces His Unconstitutional Vaccine Mandate in Disturbing, Dictatorial Speech.  Today [9/9/2021], Joe Biden took to the podium and officially announced a vaccine mandate from the federal level hitting all private businesses with over 100 employees.  In making that announcement, he trashed the unvaccinated, threatened them, and generally stoked the flames of division in such a way that should worry everyone.  He also asserted himself as a dictatorial figure, able to push governors "out the way" who push back on his tyrannical orders.  I'll go ahead and say it before we get into the clips:  This is the most disturbing speech I've ever heard from a president.  [Video clip]  Here's the president trashing the unvaccinated in a way that sounds like he's trying to foment a civil war, and no, I'm not kidding.  It's that bad, with him repeatedly talking about anger toward the unvaccinated and blaming them for all of society's ills.  [Video clip]  Later in the speech, he went at the unvaccinated again in threatening fashion.  I was almost in disbelief at his tone and word choice.

The Biden Administration Announces an End to Its Legislative Agenda.  Effectively, the Biden Administration is signaling to all parties involved that it no longer has any interest in attempting to get legislation through Congress.  Instead, it will simply fight through the use of executive actions that are almost certainly going to be challenged in the courts and fail.  They cannot get even the most basic parts of their agenda through Congress.  Biden himself is so underwater in the polling and in the eyes of his peers that he has no political clout to speak of.  His policies are being stopped by Joe Manchin, a member of his own party, who is more concerned with his voters and his re-election chances than he is pushing the party's agenda.  And that, by the way, is a clear sign that the Democratic Party, not the Republican Party, is falling apart at the seams.  When your party is in power, you have some leeway to push the party agenda even if your voters don't like it.  But if you can't even get a single piece of your legislative agenda through Congress because of a member of your own party, you're in serious trouble.

Biden Has A 'Whole Of Government' Plan For Everything, Except Rescuing Americans From Afghanistan.  After the Supreme Court decided not to stop a Texas abortion law from going into effect, President Joe Biden promised that he'd "launch a whole-of-government effort to respond to this decision." No one knows what that means, exactly, but Biden has promised "whole of government" solutions for everything under the sun.  Everything, that is, except rescuing Americans stuck in Talibanistan.  In his eight short months in the White House, Biden has made the already empty phrase "whole of government" a nauseating cliché.  He has a "whole-of-government agenda" to fight COVID, to tackle global warming, to "create good-paying, union jobs for Americans."  His administration announced a "whole-of-government process that will lift up the voices of federal scientists of many perspectives and backgrounds."  He promises a "whole-of-government effort" to promote competition in the American economy.

Biden's own staff can't stand to watch his press conferences.  [Scroll down]  When Biden is referring to the mysterious "they" who don't want him to take questions, he's talking about his "advisers."  In other words, we still don't know who is dictating his policies but it appears that everyone in Biden's orbit is begging him to keep his mouth shut and be the good little puppet they need. [...] In sum, Biden is a loose cannon who is all mouth and no brain — and his staff knows and fears it.

Joe Biden Is a Total Failure.  Indicative of the severity of the administration's problems is that the leak of the contents of the conversation with Ghani show that there are people in this administration, as there were in Trump's and Nixon's, who wanted to bring it down, even with illegal leaks.  Trump had the excuse of taking over a White House full of Democrats.  With Biden, even Democrats are disgusted and alarmed at the extent of his administration's shortcomings.  These internal indiscretions may indicate that there is some chance that the U.S. attorney in Delaware will open up the extent of the Biden family skulduggery in financial relations with several countries, centering on the president's flamboyantly beleaguered son Hunter.

President Biden Must Be Impeached.  Joe Biden should not be allowed to resign to escape punishment for he has committed high crimes and misdemeanors.  He must be impeached.  Even American allies agree. [...] Add treason to the charges of a necessary impeachment.  Biden threatened, in the depth of his self-induced chaos, "Any attack on our forces or disruption of our operations at the airport will be met with a swift and forceful response."  When his warning was answered with a suicide bombing outside the gates of the airport that left 13 US servicemen and women, and an estimated 170 Afghanis, dead, plus tens of other American soldiers badly maimed, Biden abandoned his commitment to remain until every American in Afghanistan was home.  Instead, he cut and ran, keeping to a self-imposed arbitrary deadline.  The American President deserted his countrymen and women, leaving them to their fate in enemy territory.  The death of those outside the Kabul Airport's perimeter was preventable.  The Taliban had offered America full control over Kabul until August 31. Biden refused.  This negligent act gave Kabul to the Taliban and, with it, full control of the city including all the access roads to the perimeter fence of the commercial airport.

Biden and the Left-wing Standard of Attacking Presidents.  When Donald Trump's confidential phone calls with foreign leaders were leaked to the press it was celebrated by the media and the Left as a sort of blood sport.  Now are we to think the same of the embarrassing leaked phone call between Biden and the Afghan president?  Donald Trump was impeached over a phone call with the Ukrainian president for supposedly pressuring Ukraine, by the threat of holding up foreign aid, to conduct an investigation of the Biden family syndicate's shenanigans.  So, what are we to make then of Biden's demand that the Afghan president lie to the world so that his fragile government did not appear in jeopardy, even if, Biden acknowledged, it, of course, was — with the added insinuation that Biden's commitment to support the Afghan government with U.S. military power was predicated on his compliance with parroting such lies?

Joe Biden and Gavin Newsom Urgently Need The Politics of COVID as a Tool For Distraction.  Biden's inflation is crushing the middle-class.  Gas prices are intentionally skyrocketing.  Obama Term-3 policies are destroying jobs and the working class.  The southern border is in crisis; widespread illegal immigration is alarming.  Biden's Afghanistan strategy was/is [very bad] (by design).  Thirteen U.S. service members were killed by JoeBama policy.  Leftist promoted wokeism as a social engineering tool is running amok.  Schools are a battleground between parents and Obama's union orcs.  Joe Biden himself is a hot mess of incompetence and dementia on a scale they can no longer keep hidden.  And the poll numbers for Biden overall are showing it.  The JoeBama crew must bury all of it by weaponizing the use of COVID-19 fear.  There is no other issue large enough to protect the JoeBama agenda without using COVID.  COVID-19 is the only political tool with the outcome to keep all other purposeful crises under control.  That urgent narrative is what's behind this little soundbite segment from the professional media proletariat.  [Video clip]

Why Can't Joe Biden Stop Lying?  Why can't Joe Biden stop lying?  That was my thought when I saw that the president had once again completely made up his attendance at a past event, this time while hosting a group of Jewish leaders.  According to Biden via a bumbling, confusing claim, he visited the Tree of Life synagogue following a mass shooting that occurred there some years ago.  Biden had not, in fact, visited the Tree of Life synagogue.  Further, the president has told that lie several times, yet he keeps repeating it.  That tracks with other whoppers, such as his claim that he was part of the Civil Rights movement in Delaware, or that he was arrested in South Africa.  More recently, he claimed to have driven an 18-wheeler in his younger years, something that decidedly did not happen.  Biden, for all the claims that his administration represented a return to honesty ("how refreshing" as Brian Stelter would say), has shown himself to be a consistent fount of dishonest commentary, and he often lies about the dumbest things.  Does anyone really believe he gave "Corn Pop" a good talking to at the city pool?

Biden's Afghanistan Speech Fails to Fool America.  President Biden's address to the nation concerning his surrender of Afghanistan to the Taliban was obviously a desperate attempt to convince the public that it wasn't the disaster we watched in real time. [...] Yet Biden's Tuesday address acknowledged none of this.  It was an unnerving admixture of delusion and defiance.  Where everyone else saw incompetence and chaos, he saw "extraordinary success."  Where everyone else saw betrayal and dishonor, he saw "a mission of mercy."  Where everyone else saw an arbitrary deadline, he saw a courageous decision "designed to save American lives."  Where everyone else saw surrender and shame, he saw an "honored commitment." [...] To grasp how strange and truculent this oration was, it is necessary to watch it.  Only the most rabid partisans will be able to do so and conclude that this man is "normal."

Joe Biden:  Out-Of-Touch Carnival Barker.  Joe Biden is an angry old man.  He addressed the nation yesterday afternoon [8/31/2021] by shouting at us about what an "extraordinary success" his retreat from Afghanistan had been.  None but the most loyal Biden poodles were fooled.  The president is so far gone that he seems unaware we watched his botched surrender to the Taliban in real time.  We saw a reckless mission that left both Americans and Afghans stranded and desperate to get to an airport that was being guarded by a band of erratic, medieval terrorists.  We saw our military blown to bits by suicide bombers.  We saw a president checking his watch during what is usually referred to as a "dignified" transfer of the remains of slain American warriors.  The Washington Post, which helped elect this fool, was unable this week to find a Gold Star family that felt the president treated them with dignity and compassion in Dover.  They said Biden was shallow, distracted and that he blabbed endlessly about Beau Biden and his own personal grief.  They know — and so do we — that Biden is nothing more than an unctuous huckster who's unable to read a room.

The glaring truth about Biden and his masters.  Joe Biden, the so-called president, is nothing more than a marionette controlled by a gaggle of career bureaucrats and academics, none of whom has ever contributed anything substantial to our once vibrant society.  Indeed, they are nothing more than destroyers, power-mad ideologues who use a demented old grifter as a mouthpiece while they dismantle, piece by piece, our once great Republic.  Globalism is their ultimate goal, and the nightmare we're experiencing brings us ever closer to that frightening reality.  Biden is a figurehead for the Marxist madness that's corrupting our schools, destroying small business, and slowly but surely eliminating our nation's sovereignty.  The current push to force Americans to "register" their firearms under a United Nations gun-grabbing scheme is just one example of the ongoing attack on our cherished freedoms.  Another glaring example is the fascist collaboration between the ruling elites and Big Tech to silence dissent, a clear violation of the First Amendment.  If the Marxist drive continues, it will go on and on until the Bill of Rights is little more than a footnote in a long forgotten history.

Biden Broke His Main Promise — to Control the Pandemic.  Joe Biden promised to control the coronavirus pandemic, and he is failing.  Today, there are more new coronavirus cases than there were at this point in 2020.  The economy is sputtering, and parents are starting to worry that schools will close once again.  Moreover, FDA officials are resigning in protest at the White House's effort to impose booster shots that they say are not yet supported by scientific evidence — breaking a central Biden campaign promise to "follow the science." [...] Biden's main pitch on the coronavirus pandemic was that he was going to impose draconian federal government controls that Trump had avoided using, and which many Democrats, having talked themselves into a panic, favored.  Biden adopted masks as a kind of talismanic symbol, along with promises to impose the rule of "experts" like Dr. Anthony Fauci, whom the media and the left elevated into a mythical political hero despite his many failures and reversals of medical opinion.

Biden Punts to Congress on Voting Rights, Abortion as Radicals Fume.  Joe Biden has issued more executive orders during his first eight months in office than every single president except his old boss, Barack Obama.  But he says he can't do anything to keep Republicans from establishing voting integrity in the states or restricting abortion.  That's a job that Congress has to do.  The Constitution is proving to be a pesky impediment to Biden and the Democrats' best-laid plans to remake America.  Biden says he's done all that he can legally do to "protect" voting rights and the right to abortion.  It's now up to Congress to move the ball forward.

It's a Movement:  Chanting Against Biden and They're Not Holding Back.  Demented grandpa is not a good look when it gets Americans killed.  The veil that the media had placed over Biden suddenly got ripped off for a lot of people and they saw what a deficient leader and human being he truly was — for a lot of people who may not have been looking closely before.  The media may try to spin for him in the future but it's going to be hard to stuff that genie back in the bottle, especially when he continues to fail to address the ongoing issues.

Is Joe Biden Senile or Just Dumb?  Sometimes it is difficult to know whether or not Joe Biden is senile or just dumb.  I know it's tempting to ascribe everything he does to his dementia, but he's been stupid for his whole life.  Even people suffering from dementia have moments of lucidity, so it's really impossible to know what is the true motivation behind the President's asininity.  The effects and the facts of it, however, are easy and important to dissect, because whether it's due to him losing his grip on reality, that he's just a very simple and dumb man, or a combination of both doesn't really matter, what matters is the end result.  There are, of course, countless examples of Joe Biden saying or doing things that are untethered to reality.  He regularly lies about his own life — in his first presidential run in 1987, he snapped at a questioner who dared to ask about his grade, famously going off on a rant about his own brilliance and accomplishments, all of which were lies (you'd think he'd know his own life's story) — and this was before his senility, he was in his 40s at the time.  A few months after making a complete fool of himself there, Biden suffered two brain aneurysms, doing untold damage to something already not functioning properly.  Joe Biden has never been playing with a full deck, now he doesn't even seem to be playing with cards.

"Cheat Sheet" Biden "Lost" Himself During A Speech Again, Ignores A Staffer As He Wanders Off In The Wrong Direction.  Joe Biden traveled to Louisiana on Friday [9/3/2021] to survey the damage caused by Hurricane Ida.  Biden delivered remarks on the destruction by Ida in 100-degree heat and humidity in LaPlace, Louisiana Friday afternoon.  It was obvious that Biden couldn't handle the heat or had another brain freeze during his speech.

Biden Surrendered to the Taliban; The GOP Must Not Surrender to Biden.  Only one man lost his job over Afghanistan.  Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller challenged Biden's incompetent and spineless Joint Chiefs of Staff to take responsibility for their dereliction of duty that led directly to the catastrophe in Afghanistan.  Taking responsibility meant resigning.  Biden's military men immediately smeared him as mentally ill and forced him out of the Marines.  Biden is directly responsible for the worst, most humiliating, most dangerous — yet completely avoidable — defeat in the history of American warfare.  He has betrayed the country that elected him and that he is sworn to serve.  Yet Biden has shown no remorse and taken no responsibility for the damage he has done.  Instead, he has brazenly lied and called his own actions a "success."  As for his allies, he has blamed the Afghan military, the Afghan president and, of course, his adversary Donald Trump for the mess he single-handedly created.  Hundreds are already dead and legions of unknown and uncountable others await death from terrorists whom Biden has freed, empowered and armed.

20% want Biden vote back.  Millions of people are reconsidering their vote for President Joe Biden last year as they see him hobble through a growing stack of national problems.  The latest Zogby Poll provided to Secrets said that 20% "regret voting for President Biden."  Remarkably, 21% of Democrats expressed regret, as did 29% of his Republican voters.  The overall hit to Biden was tempered by independents, of which just 14% said they wanted their vote back.

One in Five Americans Want to Take Back Their 2020 Biden Vote.  A remarkable one in five President Joe Biden voters said they regret voting for the 78-year-old in the last presidential election, according to the latest Zogby poll released on Friday [9/3/2021].  The Zogby poll was taken before Kabul, Afghanistan, was conquered by the Taliban jihadist organization, and Biden's botched Afghanistan withdrawal turned deadly, killing 13 U.S. services members and injuring more.  There was also 76 percent of the respondents who said "no" they do not regret their vote, and four percent said they were "unsure."

The 'Mr. Nice Guy Joe' everyone expected is suddenly 'Mean Mr. Biden'.  President Joe Biden got elected largely because millions of voters found him caring and empathetic.  Mr. Nice Guy, the argument went, would be a welcome relief from the sometimes abrasive and combative President Donald Trump.  Yet as the president retreated from Kabul, to the beat of the Taliban's drummer, Nice-guy Joe morphed into Mean Mr. Biden.  The president's true colors now shine with searing clarity.  He has exposed himself as calculating, callous and cruel.

Afghanistan fiasco may have been the result of blackmail.  Why would our military commanders willingly give up Bagram, a strategic airport built by the Russians, and why would they willingly leave $85 billion in military hardware behind?  Why would they leave thousands of Americans stranded behind enemy lines while providing the Taliban a "kill list" of those Americans left behind?  Unlike previous withdrawals, where it is customary upon withdrawal to first evacuate our citizens, and then destroy the equipment and blow up the bases, we did the opposite.  We did not evacuate our citizens.  We did not destroy the equipment.  And we did not blow up the bases.  We have learned that the Biden administration cut off all communication with the anti-Taliban resistance group, the National Front.  Although Ali Nazar, head of foreign relations for the group, has said he "tried to reach out," there has been no response from the Biden administration.  Glenn Beck recently reported that his mission to rescue Afghan Christians has been blocked by our State Department and the White House, and he fears that they may be burned alive or crucified by the Taliban.  Are we to believe that our military leadership, led by four-star generals, is so naïve and incompetent?  Highly unlikely!

Biden's Brain And Mouth Are Completely Disconnected.  During press conferences, Obama and Clinton were super cool, always dodging body blows and haymakers from the press corps.  They'd bob and weave, deflect and distract, pontificate and bloviate and win by TKO every time.  But President Joe Biden is the opposite of cool, the embodiment of a stumbling, stammering dweeb, immediately stumped when questioned.  His brain works so slow you can almost hear him mentally flipping through a Rolodex of flashcards filled with all the important things his advisers told him to say.  This last week has been really tough on old addled-brained Joe.  Amid the worst pullout of U.S. troops in history — which resulted in the deaths of 13 American service members and left hundreds of U.S. citizens stranded in the country — Biden was forced to face reporters and, to put it mildly, he did not fare well.

Jen Psaki keeps lying for Joe Biden on Afghanistan.  The truth doesn't mind being questioned, but a lie doesn't like to be challenged:  White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki offered a fine example of that observation Wednesday [9/1/2021] by refusing to discuss that [...] July 23 phone call — leaked audio of which shows President Joe Biden knew well in advance that Afghanistan's army was falling before the Taliban and that the situation was dire.  "The perception around the world and in parts of Afghanistan, I believe, is that things aren't going well in terms of the fight against the Taliban," he told Afghan President Ashraf Ghani.  "And there's a need, whether it is true or not, there is a need to project a different picture."  Truth [notwithstanding,] Biden needed his pullout to seem safe.

After Losing a War and Stranding Americans in Afghanistan, Biden's Pentagon Pivots Back to Race.  Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin and Pentagon spokesman John Kirby just left an untold number of Americans stranded in Afghanistan.  A week ago today, 13 American service members died in a terrorist attack at the Kabul airport that happened because Austin and the generals left it surrounded by enemy forces.  They had their eye off the ball of their main jobs, which are protecting Americans and protecting our forces.  They have reverted to taking their eye off the ball again.

Why Biden's Call With Ghani Matters.  Joe Biden came into office inheriting the war in Afghanistan.  But unlike previous presidents, he inherited a war that was relatively quiescent by Afghanistan standards, involved few American troops on the ground, and was in a phaseout due to an agreement his predecessor had struck with the Afghan government and the Taliban.  Under that deal, the U.S. would remove its troops by May 1, 2021, if the Taliban and Afghan government met certain conditions.  Biden has played both sides of the Trump deal, both arguing that it tied his hands and that he would have sought a similar deal himself.

Biden Claims He Visited Pittsburgh Synagogue That Was Attacked; Synagogue Says That's False.  Democrat President Joe Biden claimed on Thursday that he visited the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh, which was the site of a white supremacist terrorist attack that killed 11 people in 2018.  "I remember spending time at the, you know, uh, going to, uh, the, uh, you know, the Tree of Life synagogue, speaking with them," Biden said during remarks with Jewish leaders, later seeming to note that he was specifically talking about the attacks in Pittsburgh, which is where the synagogue is located.

Biden goes off on tangent about daughter's wedding, Jewish song in meeting with rabbis.  President Biden on Thursday [9/2/2021] diverged off-topic during a call with Jewish leaders to complain about his daughter's wedding to a Jewish doctor, while forgetting the names of two songs that are staples of Catholic and Jewish weddings.  The virtual call was to mark the start of the holiest time of the year for Jewish people.  Rosh Hashanah, which marks the new year in the Jewish calendar, starts Monday and Yom Kippur, the day of atonement, will be celebrated this month.  But Mr. Biden switched topics and spent a good portion of his remarks venting about his daughter, Ashley, not playing his favorite Catholic hymn at her wedding.

Tree of Life synagogue disputes Biden's claim he visited after massacre.  President Biden on Thursday told Jewish leaders that he spent time at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh after the October 2018 mass murder of 11 people there — but the synagogue told The [New York] Post he never visited.  "I remember spending time at the, you know, going to the, you know, the Tree of Life synagogue, speaking with them," Biden said in a 16-minute virtual address ahead of the Jewish holidays Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.  Barb Feige, executive director of the Tree of Life, said that Biden did not visit the synagogue in the nearly three years since the anti-Semitic attack.  In a phone interview, Feige, executive director since July 2019, said firmly that "no" Biden didn't visit, even before taking office when he had a lower public profile as a former vice president and then-Democratic presidential candidate.

Jen Psaki Goes Into Full Gaslighting Mode on the Leaked Call but Trips Over Her Own Words.  Yesterday [8/31/2021], I reported about a leaked call between Joe Biden and Afghanistan (former) President Ashraf Ghani.  Reuters got a transcript and audio of the July 23rd call during which Biden allegedly told Ghani that he had to publicly present the "perception" that the fight against the Taliban was going well "whether it is true or not." [...] So he's lying to our faces, blowing off his legal briefing requirement, and trying to get Ghani to basically do what he was doing and say something that wasn't true publicly.  Can we say impeachment yet?  White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki was asked about the leaked call and she did all she could, running as far and as fast as she could, from the question.  [Video clip]

Biden's Afghanistan speech written poorly with even worse delivery, experts say.  Former government speechwriters and messaging experts are slamming President Biden over his address to the nation Tuesday, criticizing the president for his defensive delivery and contradictory statements, while the nation mourns the deaths of 13 U.S. service members and while Americans remain stranded in Afghanistan.  Biden delivered a fiery speech a day after U.S. troops fully exited from Afghanistan, taking full "responsibility" for the decision to remove troops, while also shifting blame onto former President Donald Trump and the Afghan security forces for the chaos and death that unfolded.

Biden reportedly has a history of disrespecting Gold Star families.  President Biden is struggling to live up to his "empathizer in chief" label given by some media at the start of his presidency after facing a wave of backlash for his treatment of Gold Star families following last week's terrorist attack in Kabul, Afghanistan, that left 13 U.S. service members dead and 22 wounded.  The president on Sunday met in Dover, Delaware, with the family members of the 13 killed, but several of them have spoken out against him in the days since, accusing him of repeatedly bringing up his late son Beau and saying he routinely checked his watch during the dignified transfer of the deceased's remains.

No, Mr. President, we won't 'move on' from your Afghanistan disaster.  "That was four or five days ago" is quickly becoming the permanent mantra of the Biden administration and its media allies.  Journey back a mere two weeks, and you will recall President Joe Biden, in a home-field-advantage interview with George Stephanopoulos, saying those words about the harrowing scenes at the Kabul airport.  First of all, it wasn't true — it had only been two days.  More important, every promise the president made turned out to be false:  He didn't end the violence at the airport, and he didn't maintain our troop presence until every last American was out.  Now more than 100 American citizens are stranded.  In Afghanistan.  Under the Taliban.  Even journalists who worked for the US-government-funded Voice of America and Radio Free Europe are abandoned to the vicious whims of the Taliban.

Joe Biden's call to Afghan prez is impeachable.  Psst, Nancy Pelosi!  Still looking for a phone call worth impeaching a president?  Do I have news for you.  Reuters has a bombshell report about a July phone call between Joe Biden and then-Afghanistan President Ashraf Ghani, in which the US president promises military aid in return for lies.  The "perception around the world and in parts of Afghanistan, I believe, is that things aren't going well in terms of the fight against the Taliban," says Biden in the July 23 call.  "And there's a need, whether it is true or not, there is a need to project a different picture."  Whether it is true or not.  No, things weren't going well, three weeks after the US abandoned Bagram Airfield in the dead of night.  Biden's solution was to create the "perception" that all was fine.

Maybe If Biden Yells Loud Enough?  [Scroll down]  Americans also want to know why billions of military grade weaponry, vehicles, and equipment was left abandoned to fall into the hands of everyone from ISIS, to Iran, to China and Russia and all of the above.  Not to mention the military dogs and yes, the still unknown number of American citizens left stranded despite the constant lie anyone who wasn't evacuated simply wanted to hang around to see the Taliban late show.  This screaming, hours-late presentation by our pretend Commander-In-Chief was the last gasp of a man blaming everyone but himself for a debacle too great to gaslight, even for Democrats.  Agencies are turning on one another.  The Pentagon points to State.  State points to our intelligence agencies.  All of them deflecting Biden's blame away or back at him.

Unless he reveals whose idea it really was, and tells us whose orders he's following...
Joe Biden owns the Afghanistan debacle all to himself.  Joe Biden addressed the nation on his extremely flawed and deadly withdrawal from Afghanistan.  His comments came a day late and a dollar short once again, despite claiming that the buck stops with him."  His address on August 31 blamed everybody but himself for the utter failure of his withdrawal.  Once again, he threw his military advisers under the bus, stating that they unanimously recommended closing Bagram Air Base over Kabul International for the evacuation.  Anyone with an ounce of strategic planning training knew that this was a bad choice.  Why would you withdraw and surrender a base with a 30-mile defensible perimeter and air support over one crammed into a tight urban setting surrounded by high ground, cover and concealment, and civilian shields?

A President With a Head of Wood.  "No one's being killed right now", President Biden told George Stephanopoulos, as he knocked on wood.  That was after a 14-year-old girl was crushed in a stampede of humanity at the Kabul airport and just days after people were plunging to earth from C-17 landing gear.  13 Americans were killed by the Taliban enabling terrorists a week later.  Biden checked his watch while those 13 dead Americans were unloaded before him.  Then in a disgusting display of hubris, played his dead son "Beau Card" when he spoke to relatives.  Biden called the Afghanistan debacle, an objectively disastrous foreign policy decision and easily the worst in this century, a success.  The disaster, he created, was a Biden "win" because 100,000 (mostly un-vetted Afghans) stampeding to military transports.  He's an arsonist who sets a house on fire and later takes credit for saving a pet goldfish.

Biden didn't just lose Afghanistan.  He did it on purpose.  It's nearly impossible to overstate Joe Biden's incompetence. [...] He is a liar of galactic proportions.  He accepts no responsibility for anything.  Nothing he says its the truth.  Nothing.  Biden famously made a series of predictions over the last few months and absolutely all of them were wrong. [...] We are more at risk than we were prior to 9-11. One wonders how many Haqqani and ISIS will be brought into the US in the chaos of the evacuations.  Or they can simply walk into the US across the open Southern border.  For this disaster Biden is blaming everyone on Earth except for himself.  HE made the decision to leave Americans behind, HE made the decision to cut and run.  He blamed Trump for the deal HE ignored.

Biden Tried to Send Pallets of Cash to the Taliban as Kabul Fell.  On August 14, Secretary of State Blinken spoke with Afghanistan's former president and promised that the Biden administration would provide a bulk shipment of dollars.  The next day Kabul fell.  On that same call, Afghanistan's former leader had agreed to surrender power to the Taliban.  The Biden administration had effectively agreed to provide a massive infusion of cash to the Taliban.  But the final deal fell through, the Afghan government fled, and the Taliban took Kabul.  The bulk shipment of dollars never did arrive.  Biden's diplomats scrambled to evacuate from Kabul.  Ajmal Ahmady, the governor of DAB, Afghanistan's central bank, already had a ticket and headed to the airport.  He managed to get on a military plane.  Since then he's tweeted that he was warned that the Taliban had come looking for him.

This Guy Is Senile and Can the Media Stop Pretending He's Not?  [Scroll down]  The best part is when Biden just goes and gives away the scam, whether announcing that he's been ordered not to answer questions or that he's got a list of pre-approved questions he has to follow. [...] He's angry and shouts, or he whispers like he's offering passing kids a chance to see the puppies he's got in his van.  And whatever dope they pump him up with to get through the list of scripted questions lasts maybe ten minutes, and then you can see the wheels coming off.

The Editor says...
There are lots of people who should be ashamed that Joe Biden hasn't already been removed from office.  The one person who should be most ashamed is Kamala Harris.  The prospect of Kamala Harris becoming the U.S. President is so abhorrent to the leaders of both parties that the senile, incompetent puppet Joe Biden is safe.

Biden Is A Dirtbag Who's Always Exploited Tragedy.  The President of the United States has a history of exploiting his personal loss for personal gain, it just backfired this time.  Decorum and grief is likely the only thing that stopped one or more of these families from chewing out or even taking a swing at Biden.  You'd think someone would tell him to knock it off, that it's gross to use tragedy that way, but you'd be wrong.  You'd also think a man almost 80 years wouldn't need to be told that, which is an indication of just how stupid he really is.

For Joe Biden, It's All Downhill From Here.  Joe Biden's presidency is not going well.  That's been apparent for a long time. [...] No, it's not because Biden's breathtaking incompetence, lack of empathy, and visible anger have been surprising.  That's been baked into the cake since the beginning.  Rather, things have changed because, for the first time since Biden took the oath of office, he's taking heat from an entity he thought was on his side — the deep state.  Yesterday [8/31/2021], news broke of a not-so-perfect phone call between Joe Biden and Afghanistan's coward-in-chief, Ashraf Ghani, the former Afghan president who fled his country instead of staying to lead the fight for its survival.  What was revealed is that Biden asked Ghani to falsify the situation on the ground in order to change the "perception" that things were going badly against the Taliban.

Biden's Afghanistan baloney:  Such a success, let us count the ways.  Never mind what your lying eyes just witnessed, President Biden told the world and America, the end of the war in Afghanistan was a historic success.  The withdrawal that he promised not long ago would be "safe and orderly," that was nothing but, couldn't have gone any other way.  The only alternative to this horribly bungled pullout was escalation, another year or five or 10 of war, dooming the American military to even more perilous fighting.  In other words:  If you find yourself critiquing the frenzied and chaotic exit, wishing there had been some semblance of good planning, you may as well be rooting for the death of more American troops.  It was a success that, contrary to what Biden not long ago told the American people would happen, a government we supported over the course of two decades, with $2 trillion in taxpayer investments and 800,000 U.S. troops, melted in minutes.

Joe Biden Is Our Waterloo.  Thanks to Biden, every American in Afghanistan is surrounded by our enemy, the Taliban.  Biden's team is incapable of uttering that fact and instead calls them "security partners," He's gone so far as to give the Taliban intelligence on who is in-country under the guise of letting these people pass Taliban checkpoints.  In fact, those are death warrants for both the Americans and Afghan allies left behind.  There are people, though, making it to America:  Afghans.  In 2010, when Afghanistan was relatively peaceful and the Taliban subdued, 99% of Afghan citizens said they supported the imposition of sharia law.  Moreover, it appears that most of the people who battled their way onto the planes leaving Kabul are military-aged young men.  We have learned that these Afghans are not vetted before being loosed upon us — reflecting the same behavior seen on the Southern border.

The Cynical, Despicable 'Stuttering' Con Unravels.  [Scroll down]  By 2020, try as they might to "hide the decline," his handlers were losing control.  This is where the media came to the rescue.  Writing in the January 2020 edition of The Atlantic, former Esquire editor John Hendrickson offered would-be Biden voters a way to deny the obvious.  Yes, Biden's first Democratic debate in July 2019 was a "disaster."  Yes, some of his answers had been "meandering and difficult to parse."  Yes, he seemed "confused and out of touch."  Yes, "His verbal stumbles have voters worried about his mental fitness."  Being in on the con, wittingly or not, Henderickson threw Biden a lifeline — "Maybe they'd be more understanding," he said of tentative Biden supporters, "if they knew he's still fighting a stutter."  Yes, that was it, a "stutter."  Henderickson spoke with authority.  He was a stutter survivor himself.  Who dared contradict him?  Sort of like FDR, thought the credulous reader, Biden had fought valiantly throughout his political career to overcome a physical handicap.  Big Media played along.

Biden Declares War Over, Shifts Blame for Botching Withdrawal.  Almost exactly 24 hours after the last cargo plane carrying Americans lumbered down the Kabul airport runway, President Biden started walking.  He exited the Oval Office, passed through the Cross Hall of the White House, and entered the State Dining Room.  He arrived with a full head of steam, and he was there to say that the war in Afghanistan, the longest war in American history, was over.  In remarks that lasted roughly half an hour, Biden took "full responsibility for the decision" to end the war while, at the same time, pushing responsibility onto others for how it ended.

Who Shall Rescue Us from Joe Biden?  With placeholder president-in-name-only Joe Biden's horrifying, juvenescent, and callow surrender of Afghanistan, the Dems' and Never-Trumpers' grand succession plan après Donald Trump has now utterly collapsed.  President Joe Biden is officially a disgrace to the office, the nation, and its citizens.  Ruined by his native low IQ arrogance, malicious incompetence, and aging mental health infirmities, and shunned by our allies, Joe Biden has no standing.  Relegating serious Afghan retrograde decisions to a collection of woke fools, and duplicitous useless technocrats would never be forgivable even if Biden were a completely innocent incapacitated bystander.  Yet in his increasingly rare coherent nano-moments, Biden will not admit to having allowed — indeed steered — his handlers to orchestrate a colossal geopolitical wreck, easily avoidable, a predictable and ignoble coda to his mendacious, dishonorable, and mediocre career.

With Americans, allies left behind, a clueless Biden declares Afghan mission 'extraordinary success'.  Exactly 24 hours after the last US military transport plane departed Kabul, leaving hundreds of Americans and thousands of Afghan allies at the mercy of terrorists who've never shown any, President Joe Biden declared the mission an "extraordinary success."  What a slap in the face to the families of the 13 American service members and hundreds of civilians who died last week when the Taliban let a suicide bomber through their checkpoints outside the Kabul airport.  Clearly angry that any dare criticize him, Biden showed no remorse, admitted no real responsibility.  Instead, he resorted to the same tired talking points and weird non sequiturs he's trotted out for two weeks to explain once again why he had no regrets about his "wise decision."

Biden's Afghanistan Speech Shows He Is Sociopathic.  How many times has Joe Biden ranted at us about why he is right on Afghanistan?  I've lost track, but I think this at least the fifth "official" rant.  But this one was the worst yet and you could feel it.  He was just so angry.  He's not angry at the Taliban.  He's not angry at his own failures or those of his people.  He's angry at the people left behind.  And, he's angry at you.  He's angry at you for not simply accepting what an "extraordinary success" this all was.  He keeps screaming about ending the war, a point that no one is even contesting or really talking about — only about his incompetent handling of it — which he doesn't want to deal with, so he keeps trying to switch the focus.

Biden Administration Erased Afghan Weapons Reports From Federal Websites.  The War in Afghanistan has always been a black box, but the Biden administration just made matters worse.  According to an admission obtained from the State Department, Biden officials recently directed federal agencies to scrub their websites of official reports detailing the $82.9 billion in military equipment and training provided to the Afghan security forces since 2001.  The scrubbed audits and reports included detailed accounting of what the U.S. had provided to Afghan forces, down to the number of night vision devices, hand grenades, Black Hawk helicopters, and armored vehicles.  Reports further quantified 208 aircraft and helicopters; 75,000 war vehicles — including 22 Humvees, 50,000 tactical vehicles and nearly 1,000 mine resistant vehicles; and 600,000 weapons — including 350,000 M4 and M16 rifles, 60,000 machine guns, and 25,000 grenade launchers.

Transcript: Biden had a secret deal in July to hide imminent Taliban threat.  Reuters released a transcript today [9/1/2021] of a call between Afghanistan's then-President Ashraf Ghani and Joe Biden during which they agreed to keep secret how badly things were going in the war against the Taliban.  Biden asked Ghani to create the "perception" that Ghani's government could hold off the Taliban, whether "it's true or not."

There's That Impeachable Call:  Biden Pressured Ghani to Create "Perception" That They Were Beating Taliban.  Joe Biden was telling America in July that the Taliban weren't going to take over Afghanistan, that no one could have known that was going to happen.  He maintains that no one told him differently, a claim we've already shown was a lie as he received a cable in June from officials in the State Department indicating that there was a likelihood that the Taliban would take over quickly once the U.S. pulled out at the end of August.  But it turns out that Biden was playing even more games behind the scenes, and something different was going on than what he was telling Americans to our faces.  According to a transcript of a July 23rd call that Biden had with former Afghanistan president Ashraf Ghani that has been obtained by Reuters, Biden tried to pressure Ghani to change the "perception" of what was going on — which was that the Taliban was quickly taking over large swaths of the country and had by July taken much of the country.

Biden pressured Afghan President Ghani to create 'perception' Taliban wasn't winning 'Whether It's True Or Not'.  President Joe Biden wanted the now-departed Afghan president to create the 'perception' that his government was capable of holding off the Taliban — an indication he knew it was only a matter of time before the US ally fell to the Islamic group even while reassuring Americans at home that it would not happen.  In the last phone call between Biden and his Afghan then-counterpart Ashraf Ghani, the American president said they needed to change perceptions of the Taliban's rapid advance 'whether it is true or not,' according to excerpts published on Tuesday [8/31/2021].  The call took place on July 23 — weeks before the fall of Kabul — but Biden on Tuesday repeated his assertion that his team was caught flat-footed by the rapid Taliban takeover of the country.

Biden Blew off Law That Could Have Warned Congress of Coming Debacle in Afghanistan.  President Donald Trump left 2,500 troops in Afghanistan.  But when Joe Biden came in, he was barred from using money from the Department of Defense budget to reduce the number below 2,000 by federal statute, "without first briefing Congress about the expected impact on U.S. counterterrorism operations and the risk to American personnel" and providing a detailed report, according to the Free Beacon.  He was required to report on ISIS, the Taliban, al Qaeda, the risk for the expansion of terrorism, and the capacity of the Afghan security forces to deal with them all.  Of course, Biden did reduce the troop numbers below that — to nothing — and waived the mandate requiring him to brief Congress in June, that it was important to the interests of national security.  Some "mandate," if he can just waive it.  If he had not done so, they could have talked about all the terrorist risk which if it wasn't clear before, is certainly clear now — with thousands of ISIS-K fighters released from Bagram.  Not to mention the al Qaeda and Haqqani cells, as well as the Taliban themselves.

Biden's Presidency Is Already A Total Disaster, And It's All His Own Fault.  The first seven months of Joe Biden's presidency have been fraught with crises.  First it was the coronavirus pandemic and the vaccine rollout.  Then it was the border crisis.  Then it was the economy.  And now Afghanistan, where the Taliban are now reportedly hanging people by the neck from U.S.-supplied Blackhawk helicopters, and the U.S. withdrawal has left behind hundreds of Americans and perhaps thousands of Green Card holders in what now amounts to the largest hostage crisis in American history.  The administration is stumbling from one disaster to the next, with no end in sight and public opinion plummeting on nearly every major issue.  In each case, the disaster has been entirely of the Biden administration's own making.  Events are not overtaking Biden, his own rank incompetence is.

Bad Dismount.  Joe Biden took to the microphones yesterday to announce to the American public that the demonstrably disastrous pullout from Afghanistan was really a whiz-bang success of historic proportions!  Everything went perfectly smoothly and according to plan, with every single goal being met.  Seriously, this is the approach he decided to take (along with barking forcefully because someone told him to) and I just couldn't watch the whole speech. [...] Because if Joe Biden's rush for the exits was a "success," what [...] does a "failure" look like?  Jihad Joe just gifted the Taliban with $85 billion in state-of-the-art weaponry and munitions, making them one of the best-equipped armies in the world.  And that same world watched as Biden showed that America's promises no longer mean anything and we can't be trusted as allies.

Angry Joe Biden Refuses to Admit Mistakes or Accept Accountability in Disastrous Afghanistan Exit.  A defiant President Joe Biden defended his tumultuous exit from Afghanistan on Tuesday, refusing to admit mistakes or accept blame for lives lost or Americans left behind.  "Some say that the evacuation from Afghanistan could have been started sooner and completed in a more orderly fashion," Biden said.  "I respectfully disagree."  Biden began by describing the military evacuation as a success, defying critics of his rushed exit from the country after the Taliban seized control of Kabul on August 15.

They're "on the table" because they're the only legal options.
Rep. Roger Williams:  Impeachment And 25th Amendment On the Table To Remove Joe Biden.  Impeachment of President Joe Biden and use of the 25th Amendment are available options for Congress in response to the killing of U.S. military personnel in suicide bombing attacks in Kabul, Afghanistan, Rep. Roger Williams (R-TX) said [... 8/29/2021].  "It's certainly grounds for [Biden] to be to be removed from office," Williams remarked.  "He should resign if he truly loves this country and sees that this is a disaster of epic proportions.  When we lost those [14] young men and women the other day, it was about as low as America has gotten in our history."

The Editor says...
If Joe Biden "he truly loves this country," he would have retired after three terms in the Senate, he wouldn't have given the America-hating Barack H. Obama any assistance, and he certainly wouldn't have accepted the benefits of the stolen 2020 election.

Biden throws a tantrum.  Our hapless president's speech on Tuesday [8/31/2021] was not a speech at all.  It was a full-blown childish tantrum.  While he was ostensibly celebrating his massive "airlift" of thousands of mostly Afghan refugees, from the beginning, it was clear he is extremely angry.  He almost shouted his claim that his catastrophic misadventure in Afghanistan has been a smashing success.  This is a huge lie, and everyone knows it, even those trying to spin this debacle as a win.  In fact, Biden's surrender has probably set a genocide in motion, just as our betrayal of the South Vietnamese gave birth to the killing fields.  Women and girls are sure to be brutalized.  Biden had promised for days that no American would be left behind, but of course hundreds, perhaps even thousands, have been left behind. [...] Biden is, and has always been, a pathological liar of the worst kind, the kind who lies to boost his own ego, no matter how easy it is to prove his dishonesty.

Impeach Biden.  [Scroll down]  Biden had been given the opportunity to create a secure escape route for American civilians escaping Afghanistan and to keep American soldiers safe in the city.  Instead he set them up to be massacred by turning security in Kabul and around its airport over to a terrorist group.  Even while Biden falsely claimed at a press conference that Afghanistan would be nothing like Kabul, military and intelligence briefings had already prepared him for much worse.  If someone had to take the PR hit for chasing away refugees and a botched evacuation, Biden preferred that the Taliban play the bad guys while he disavowed all responsibility.  He didn't care how many Americans died as long as he maintained plausible deniability to cover up their deaths.  Biden's assumption that the Taliban could be trusted to do his dirty work without wanting anything in return except the end of our presence in Afghanistan was treasonously dumb. [...] Biden made numerous mistakes that led to the fall of Afghanistan, including the abandonment of Bagram Air Base, which not only cut off a secure evacuation route, but freed countless Jihadis, some of whom may have even taken part in the Kabul airport attack.  But the decision to turn over Kabul to the Taliban, and to turn over security around Kabul airport to allies of Al Qaeda whom the United States had designated as terrorists is nothing short of treasonous.

A Self-Inflicted Catastrophe.  This disaster in Afghanistan is worse than Benghazi, worse than Jimmy Carter's hostage crisis, because those were inept responses to an external situation.  By contrast, this is a disaster that Biden and his inept team themselves created.  I remember well how Carter's hostage crisis ended.  It ended on the very day that Ronald Reagan was inaugurated in January 1981.  Reagan had pledged that he would take very strong action against Iran, without specifying what that action might be.  Evidently the terrorists, who had the backing of the Khomeini regime, decided it was not a good idea to test Reagan's resolve.  They let the hostages go.  The current catastrophe in Afghanistan seems to have proceeded in reverse.

Joe Biden rushed the Afghanistan pullout for a political speech he wanted to give.  He hoped to use the 20th anniversary to proclaim himself the president who had succeeded in doing what none of his predecessors — George W. Bush, Barack Obama and Donald Trump — could:  end the "endless war" in Afghanistan.  The purpose of the artificial deadline was to provide Mr. Biden a dramatic backdrop for the speech he wanted to give.  The bungled exit has scuttled that plan.  Worse, it has forever surrendered 9/11 to the Islamist fundamentalists.  It is now what they meant it to be in 2001: their day of victory.  Part of this victory belongs to al Qaeda, which seared the date 9/11 into America's memory.  Today al Qaeda's leaders have regained the haven that they used to plan and carry out the 9/11 attacks, under the same Taliban hosts who refused to give them up even after President Bush declared the U.S. wouldn't distinguish between the terrorists who attacked us and those who harbored them intend to rub it in.  And why not?  They won.  The Taliban victory is bigger still.

Can Americans still beat Democrat voter fraud?  The voter fraud party got away with picking the perfect candidate for their purposes.  They put a man in office who was unelectable.  This truly is amazing.  Biden's many tries for the Oval Office had always been spectacular failures.  That alone makes him the perfect puppet for the interests that control the voter fraud party.  In addition, he was never an intelligent man, and, even better for his controllers, he is now in steep mental decline.  Also, he and his whole family are in the awkward position of being bent over a legal barrel for blatant corruption should it ever become necessary for his controllers to enforce a little discipline on him or his family.

Impeachment: High Crimes and Misdemeanors in 1787.  [Scroll down]  Madison's speech makes clear that vicious or bad character would be enough to be an impeachable offence.  He directly correlated violating any crime and misdemeanor as an impeachable offence.  Bad character alone would have been grounds for removal.  Impeachment was not written for the purpose of a criminal indictment, but solely for the removal of those few who the Constitution allows for.  There is nothing in the Constitution that allows for Congress to criminally indict and prosecute any president or any other civil officer listed.  It is a means of removal from office when action must be taken prior to the next election or death of federal judges.  The distinction between a crime and misdemeanor may have been lost to time, but there was a clear difference when the Constitution was written.  When that time is used as the sole reference of what constitutes an impeachable offense, it is clear that no crime must be committed for an impeachment to be justified.

'Long-held Doubts about Biden's Ability'.  In National Review Saturday morning, the great and the good are affirming their "long-held doubts about Biden's ability."  ["]The question that Biden's media allies and the Washington establishment are now privately wondering:  Is the Afghan disaster an aberration, or will the calculated risk they took in helping Biden into the White House prove to be an unending series of headaches and embarrassments?["]  So why in the world did you geniuses deep-six Bernie Sanders back in March 2020? [...] I guess you could say that this is progress.  Up till now, the only thing the "ruling clique" cared about was that Trump is a Problem.  Otherwise everything was copacetic, except that we had only 12 years to save the planet. [...] What does it take to humiliate a ruling class?  It takes a humiliating defeat in war; it needs a reckless inflation that impoverishes widows and orphans; it takes a people enraged by a justice system that calls some people peaceful protesters and others armed insurrectionists.  But it takes one thing more.  It takes a populace that is no longer afraid to be called racist, sexist, or homophobic.

Lawmakers Demand Pelosi Begin Biden Impeachment 'Immediately'.  Several lawmakers have written a letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi demanding that the California Democrat "immediately" begin impeachment proceedings against President Joe Biden after his administration stranded "hundreds" of Americans in Afghanistan.  "The American people must have full confidence in their Commander in Chief's judgment and ability to protect our country and respond decisively to national security threats," said the letter from Reps.  Claudia Tenney, R-N.Y., Ronny Jackson, R-Texas, Jeff Van Drew, R-N.J., Pete Sessions, R-Texas, and Yvette Herrell, R-N.M.  "We have no confidence in President Joseph R. Biden's ability to carry out his duties as Commander-in-Chief of the U.S. Armed Forces," they added.

Biden's War:  Image of President in Fetal Position Has Enemies Quaking.  Rarely has one image more perfectly captured the moment — and totality — of a man's presidency.  Befuddled by time, disoriented by a riot of terrible decisions, and confused by the demand for answers, President Joe Biden stood in the East Room of the White House, clutched his binder to his chest, and folded before the American people.  Almost weeping, he pressed his face into his hands and closed his eyes. [...] General McKenzie thus far has not shown the honor or decency to resign his post.  But our commander-in-chief is at least aware enough of his surroundings to curl up and cry, clutching his leather binder like a security blanket.  A reporter asked Mr. Biden if he took responsibility for the 13 deaths.  He said he did — before once again blaming Donald Trump.  In an earlier time, the press would have hidden such a demoralizing picture — just as they strained to never show F.D.R. in a wheelchair during World War II.  After all, propaganda is a powerful weapon.

21 Times Joe Biden Promised to Leave 'No One Behind'.  President Joe Biden ordered a hasty, chaotic, and deadly withdrawal from Afghanistan, leaving hundreds of Americans stranded there on August 31.  Ironically, Biden had promised — repeatedly — to leave "no one behind" there, or anywhere.  Biden broke a specific promise not to leave Afghanistan until all Americans had been rescued: [...] The tagline — leave "nobody behind" or "no one behind" — has been a part of Biden's stump speech since at least the 2019-2020 Democratic presidential primary.  He has used it in several speeches, including his speech to the 2020 Democratic National Convention, and he has tweeted it frequently from his official account.

Biden Lied:  Americans Were Left Behind in Afghanistan.  Despite Biden's promise to get every American who "wants to leave" out of Afghanistan, hundreds of Americans remain stranded and are at the mercy of the Taliban.  The last United States evacuation plane left Kabul airport at 11:59 p.m.  Afghanistan time, 3:59 p.m. EST.  Marine Corps Gen. Kenneth F. McKenzie Jr. announced Monday evening that the last of the U.S. military personnel stationed at the Kabul airport had left, completing the military's drawdown and evacuation of Afghanistan, even though hundreds of Americans likely remain.  McKenzie, commander of U.S. Central Command, said some American citizens who wanted to leave Afghanistan remain in the country.  "We did not get everybody out that we wanted to get out," he said.

Biden breaks his promise, strands Americans in Afghanistan.  In an interview with George Stephanopoulos on August 19, Joe Biden said the U.S. would stay in Afghanistan until every American who wants to get out is out.  As of now, the U.S. is out of Afghanistan, but our government concedes that some Americans are still trapped in that chaotic Taliban-ruled country.  Moreover, our government does not intend to use the military to get these Americans out.

The case for impeachment.  Article II also obligates the President to "take care that the laws be faithfully executed." These include the immigration laws.  Article IV requires the federal government to protect every state against invasion.  Clearly, by opening the southern border, President Biden has failed to faithfully execute the immigration laws, to fulfill his constitutional duty to protect the states against invasion or to protect the health and safety of our citizens.  The political rationale for opening the border to Central Americans is to change the demographics of the country to bolster the rolls of Democrat voters.  Many states do not require citizenship as a requirement for voter registration, and several automatically register people to vote when they are issued a drivers' license.  Cubans, however, are unwelcome, presumably because they tend to vote Republican.  More than a million aliens have entered illegally since Biden took office.  Many who cross illegally carry COVID, or are members of criminal gangs, bringing fentanyl, heroin, meth, or children trafficked into sexual slavery.  It is outrageous that a President would sacrifice the health and safety of his citizens to solidify his Party's grip on power.

Biden calls Black adviser 'boy' during FEMA briefing.  President Biden called a Black adviser "boy" during a Federal Emergency Management Administration (FEMA) briefing on Monday [8/30/2021].  The president used the term while introducing his senior adviser Cedric Richmond, a former Louisiana congressman.  "I'm here with my senior adviser and boy who knows Louisiana very, very well and New Orleans, Cedric Richmond," Biden said at a press briefing with FEMA after Hurricane Ida rocked Louisiana.

Taliban Made Biden an Offer He Refused Which Could Have Avoided Debacle in Kabul.  [Scroll down]  Understand what they're really saying there:  Biden was offered control of the Kabul by the Taliban and he/his people turned it down.  And they then agreed to an impossible date to get everyone out by, shortening from his own date of 9/11.  He would have had ample opportunity — with a perimeter — to get people out safely.  He still might have had difficulty getting people outside of Kabul.  But you wouldn't have this obvious focus on the airport, being a largely unprotected target.  He chose to withdraw without any cover, and that's been a large part of the problem, in addition to not doing it fast enough beforehand, despite all the warnings.  "Control" of Kabul wouldn't necessarily have meant that they had to do a lot, just provide a little breathing room for the local authorities to reassert their own control.  But we'll never know what that result could have been, because risk averse Joe Biden refused to take the offer.  He refused both protection for our military and the city — because he wanted out immediately.

Report: Taliban Offered Biden Control of Kabul, but He Declined.  The chaos in Afghanistan could have reportedly been avoided altogether if President Joe Biden had accepted the Taliban's initial offer for the U.S. to have full control of Kabul and the airport.  According to a report from the Washington Post, as the Taliban began taking control of Afghanistan, senior U.S. military leaders met with Taliban political leader Abdul Ghani Baradar in Doha, Qatar, where an offer was made for the United States to have control of Kabul until all U.S. troops had withdrawn; the offer was declined.

Biden's meeting with Ukrainian President Zelenskyy revives troubles of corruption, Crimea, Russia.  Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy's visit to the White House on Wednesday [9/1/2021] will complete a circle of politics and intrigue spanning three U.S. administrations.  President Biden has put Ukrainian corruption near the top of the agenda when he sits down in the Oval Office with Mr. Zelenskyy.  It's the same issue that has imbued both Washington's and Mr. Biden's relationship with the Eastern European country for nearly a decade.  Mr. Zelenskyy, a comedian, actor and political neophyte who was elected Ukraine's president in 2019, wasn't always at the center of the U.S.-Ukraine circle.  But when he was, it was a doozy.

Joe, Go Home.  You see, Joe.  You've given them the information, the weapons, the training, and an exact calendar.  You've given them the confidence, the reason, the initiative, and the keys.  You have given them the ideological cover, that multiculturalist entelechy; you have given them more than obvious signs of your own deterioration and weakness; and you have given them the pleasure of ignoring every single one of the voices that warned you of the madness you were poised to commit.  You have given everything to that bunch of psychopaths and now you cannot seriously be surprised that they are murdering your people with the same weapons you have given them.  The Taliban terrorists are just as guilty of murder as the Islamic State terrorists: don't forget that the former opened the cells of Bagram and other prisons so that the latter could commit the attacks.  And there's something even more important: they don't respect you.  They don't fear you.  Most of the things that are happening would never have happened with Donald Trump, because the Taliban knew that if they were to go back on even the smallest detail of the contract, they would bear witness to the full might of the huge American military coming down on their black turbans.

The Sleepy Dormouse at 1600.  [Scroll down]  But regardless of whether our Joe was really listening to the prime minister's remarks and was just resting his eyes rather than catching 20 winks, this is one hell of a way to appear before the leader of a valued ally.  Joe could at least try to look alert.  He doesn't even have to really listen, because what is said in these staged events is predictable boiler-plate.  But courtesy, decorum, and optics require he at least appear to be listening.  Apparently Jen Psaki should be packing NoDoz tablets along with the large print cue cards on the rare occasions when she rolls Sleepy Joe out before the public.

Treason: Afghanistan Disaster Is More Proof Biden Is Owned Lock, Stock and Barrel by China.  The tragedy and catastrophe that just happened in Afghanistan is more proof positive of my contention — President Joe Biden, his family and his Democrat puppet handlers are China-owned.  They are doing China's bidding.  The Biden crime family is owned lock, stock and barrel by China and the Chinese Communist Party.  Biden's stolen presidency is the best thing to ever happen to China.  I don't need to remind all of you of what just happened in Afghanistan.  Everyone saw it.  The question is, can you believe your own eyes?  How could this happen?  This is the worst debacle in U.S. foreign policy history.  And it threatens to become the worst catastrophic failure in U.S. military history.  Why?  Because it was all foreseeable and preventable.  If only Biden and the Democrats were as good at foreign policy as they are at rigging and stealing elections.  We'd be ruling the world, not taking orders from the Taliban.

Biden Diverted Military Jet Away for Outrageous Reason in Middle of Kabul Evacuation.  The U.S. has been desperately trying to evacuate people out of the Kabul airport in Afghanistan.  There was such a large number of people and great need for planes that Joe Biden even ordered private airlines to provide planes to help with the process about a week ago. [...] So every military plane was desperately needed to help with the evacuation.  But it turns out that one military jet was being used elsewhere, despite the national security emergency, by Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm, who chartered it to go to a diplomatic summit in Ukraine, also last Monday. [...] This would have been wrong normally and worthy of investigation.  But especially in the face of the emergency, Biden approved her use of this plane for a non-essential summit that she shouldn't even be use a military jet to fly to to begin with.  Why?  Why is he ordering the private airlines into service, when he's doing stuff like this at the same time?  There's no possible justification for this ridiculous use of a military jet.  So far, the Department of Energy refuses to answer up as to what the justification for all this was.

The Editor says...
The Ukraine sure seems to be very important to Joe Biden.  I wonder why.

Gen. McMaster puts blame for Afghanistan disaster squarely on Biden — "self-defeat".  The Sunday morning [8/29/2021] political shows were not kind to Joe Biden and his disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan.  Any and all criticism leveled at his decisions is warranted, especially since the death of 13 military members, ages 20 [to] 31 at the Kabul airport.  There is no hiding from that tragedy at Camp David or in the basement of one of his Delaware homes.  One critic who keeps showing up is retired General H.R. McMaster who served as National Security Advisor in the Trump administration from 2017 to 2018. [...] McMaster ended his frequent appearances on FNC that he enjoyed as a member of the Trump administration and went over to CNN and MSNBC.  They were happy to welcome someone who they thought would criticize Trump.  Now, however, it is impossible to notice he is back on FNC.  He is a vocal critic of Biden's handling of the withdrawal of Afghanistan which must be a shock to his new friends in the Biden-friendly media.

Joe Biden's top 10 blunders.  As I've watched the events of the past few weeks — and thought about the nature of Joe Biden's young presidency — I began to ask myself:  How much more of this can we take?  In just seven months, President Biden has overseen a remarkable number of complete blunders.  To make sense of them all and consider how to overcome them, I decided to make a list of them.  Of course, it would take months of time and writing to list all the errors Biden has made in his 48 years in politics, so I decided to start at his inauguration in January.  These are roughly in chronological order.  It seemed impossible to rank them as so many of them could have lasting, unforeseeable consequences.

CNN 'fact checker' comes to rescue after Biden appears to fall asleep while sitting with Israeli PM.  CNN's "fact-checker" rushed to the rescue Saturday [8/28/2021] after Twitter users began speculating that President Joe Biden had "fallen asleep" during his Oval Office meeting a day earlier with newly appointed Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett.  For the majority of the 13-minute meeting Friday, the president was fairly lively — or, rather, as lively as a 78-year-old man suspected of having dementia can be.  Near the tail end of the meeting, however, he began acting suspiciously by allowing his head to droop so that it was pointing down as if he was dozing off.

Hunter Biden:  A legend in the art community.  While "Lunch Bucket" Joe was the vice president, his son Hunter had limitless business opportunities.  As revealed by Hunter's laptop, "the big guy" was even getting a 10% cut.  I believe that the mob calls that "wetting his beak."  But there was no influence-peddling.  That would be wrong, and Genuine Joe never does anything wrong.  Besides, as the MSM endlessly informed us, those allegations have all been debunked.  "There's nothing to see.  Please move along."  Now that Joe has ascended to the presidency, Hunter has miraculously become a world-renowned artist.  He is so well respected in the art community that his paintings can earn as much as a half a million bucks each.  Hunter specializes in abstract art, which coincidently doesn't have to look like anything in particular.  But I'm sure he's very talented — in fact, world-class — at painting things that don't look like anything.  I'm sure it's also just a coincidence that his art dealer has Chinese connections.  But again, "There's nothing to see.  Please move along."  I wonder if Hunter's art will still be fetching such high prices after Joe checks into a nursing home for the memory-challenged.

No Aspect of Biden's Afghanistan Fiasco Was Handled With Competence.  With every press conference from each department, we see nothing but ineptitude.  This week has seen a completely bungled extraction effort in Afghanistan turn from being a fiasco to a tragedy.  The suicide bombing has galvanized the country into seeing this as far more than a mishandled mission but instead as an enterprise being executed with abject incompetence.  It is not with ease that I say this about the country's leadership, but the perpetual presentation of evidence affirming this reality defies being ignored.

The Administration Lied About Giving a List of Names to the Taliban and Not a Fact-Checker to be Found.  Over the past several days, disturbing reports began to circulate that the US had provided the Taliban with the names of Americans and Afghan allies.  That was ostensibly done to help facilitate their passage through various checkpoints, but even still, it underscored the incredibly insane decision to rely on a terrorist group for security in the first place.  We first heard the word of the information sharing with the Taliban from Gen. Kenneth McKenzie of US Central Command.  But as the bad press started to pile up from the revelation, the administration decided to do what they do best — lie and obfuscate.

Sleepy Joe Biden Earns His Nickname As He Doses Off During Presser With Israeli PM.  Poor Joe, with the shitshow he caused in Afghanistan, he hasn't been able to put an early lid on things for days, which means no nap time.  [Video clip]

As Everyone Knows, Biden's Disastrous Afghan Exit Is Entirely Trump's Fault.  Even if he does have a little ear-bud feeding him words to say from a nearby room, Joe Biden doesn't seem to know or remember quite a few things these days.  Like the names of people standing right next to him or what you call that immense, five-sided building over in Virginia, you know, where all those military people are.  But one thing Joe Biden is absolutely certain and absolutely adamant about, when he can express a coherent thought, is that he must get all U.S. troops out of Afghanistan this week — because his mouthy predecessor signed an agreement with the Taliban.  Biden is equally certain that the Aug. 31 pullout deadline, which he himself set, and all the shocking deadly chaos in Kabul involving thousands of terrified people the last few weeks is due to that same agreement Trump's minions signed early last year with the Taliban or, as Biden calls those terrorists, the Tollybahn.  According to Biden, he is bound on this matter by these most likely ill-advised obligations made by Donald Trump.

Joe Biden Appears to Fall Asleep While Meeting With Israeli PM.  While Afghanistan collapses, COVID rages, and the U.S. economy stagnates, you can take heart in the fact that we have an energetic, dedicated leader ready to tackle any issue that comes his way.  Alright, so you can't take heart in that — because the president is actually Joe Biden.  But still, surely he can at least remain awake long enough to meet with the Israeli prime minister.  I mean, it's not like that's a demanding assignment.  Apparently, that was too much to ask, though.  Biden appears to have fallen asleep at one point during the meeting, and I don't mean that as a joke about the fact that he consistently looks out of it.  I mean that it looks like he literally fell asleep.  [Tweet]  To appease the fact-checkers, I'll note that I can't tell for sure that he's asleep here.  Perhaps he's just resting his eyes?  I don't know, but what I do know is that there's nothing normal about Biden hanging his head for 30+ seconds this way, instead of having his attention locked on the head of state he's ostensibly there to speak with.  At one point, the video zooms in and you can see that his eyes are closed.

Kevin McCarthy:  President Biden Picked the Taliban Over Our Allies and Over Americans.  McCarthy:  "Why would you quit?  Why would you quit with five days to go?  Why would you quit when Americans are still sitting over there?  Why would you quit when you have allies, the U.K., France, Germany, who have fought with us in Afghanistan, not because they were attacked, but because America was attacked, who have asked this president to extend the deadline so they can get their citizens out?["]  [Video clip]

The Declaration 2.0 (Revised).  [Scroll down]  The history of the present POTUS is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States.  To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.  He has usurped the nation's highest office, and because of his mental unfitness for that office, is the puppet of an illegitimate and hidden Cabal that has destroyed the bonds of trust most wholesome and necessary for the public good.  He has forbidden our Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them, and hath meanwhile ignored restraints issued by coequal branches of government not under his direct political control.  He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.  He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.

Yes, the 2020 election was stolen.  [Scroll down]  A shuffling, peevish and often confused Joe Biden attracted no more than 100 to 200 people to his pre-election rallies where he stumbled through short scripted speeches.  His vice-presidential candidate Kamala Harris, selected entirely for being a woman of color (Biden had committed publicly to choosing a woman VP and said he'd prefer one of color), turned out to be so jarringly repellant, even to Democrats, that she dropped out of the presidential race during the primaries, winning zero electoral votes.  Yet Biden and Harris won the 2020 election.

More Republicans Join Calls for Impeaching Biden After Kabul Massacre.  Calls to impeach President Joe Biden are growing in tenor in the wake of the disastrous and deadly attack on U.S. military personnel and Afghan civilians in Kabul.  Rep. Jeff Duncan, R-S.C., cosponsored articles of impeachment against Biden due to an alleged "foreign policy failure" in Afghanistan, according to Fox News.  Duncan signed on to articles of impeachment first filed last week by freshman Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga.  The South Carolina lawmaker said in a statement that he feels it's time to remove Biden following his "gross negligence" that lead to the Taliban retaking Afghanistan which then "resulted in a grave humanitarian crisis."

Biden's Bagram Blunder Surpasses Custer at Little Big Horn, Lee at Gettysburg.  [Scroll down]  Add now to the list of men responsible for the worst military blunders in American history President Joe Biden's decisions to abandon Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan and to commence the U.S. withdrawal during the fighting season for that perpetually war-ravaged region of Central Asia.  The Bagram abandonment — done in the dead of night without forewarning to the Afghan national government that we supported and without the prior removal of valuable equipment — is so obvious and colossal a blunder as to defy rational explanation.  Biden claimed Thursday that he asked his military advisers — primarily the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the Secretary of Defense — about the advisability of pulling out of Bagram and they told him not to worry.  If that is true — and I pray to God that Biden was either lying to cover his posterior or simply misunderstood what they said — then every one of those men should be fired from their posts and discharged from the U.S. military.

Biden's Botched Bug Out.  This week we were treated to a bloody horror show at Kabul Airport and a preposterous performance (a full day late) by a President who claimed responsibility and then quickly proceeded to shun it, blaming everyone else.  As commander in chief, he was responsible for the disastrous consequences of the withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan by a plan only an idiot would have conceived or endorsed.  What followed were continued lies from the Department of State, General Mark Milley, and probably the Department of Defense.  Only individual Americans stood fast to preserve our tattered honor.  The Biden Bug Out Plan was exactly the opposite of the plan President Trump and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo had crafted.  In that plan, our well-fortified base at Bagram, some 40 miles from Kabul, was to be the last thing shuttered.  In Biden's plan, it was the first.  He had our troops turn off the lights and leave in the middle of the night without warning to the Afghani government, doubtless encouraging the rapid Taliban advance to Kabul.

What Afghanistan Reveals about Joe Biden, Israel, and Iran.  The powerful bomb blast attack by an ISIS affiliate, ISIS-K (Khorasan), a deadly terror group of jihadists from Syria and other areas, on American forces and Afghan civilians in Kabul on August 26, 2021, killed 13 U.S. troops and more than 90 Afghans.  This was a dark day for the U.S., the deadliest day for U.S. military forces in Afghanistan since 2011. [...] In view of his inability to secure the drawdown of U.S. troops in an orderly way, the question arises:  "Is Biden reliable as an American and world leader, or is he detached from reality?"  Foreign countries are concerned:  Ukraine, whether Biden can help deter Russia; can Taiwan rely on U.S. protection from China; should NATO leaders now call for an independent European security operation from which the U.S. is excluded?  Most immediately, there is the problem of whether Biden is genuinely, as well as rhetorically, committed to preventing Iran from becoming a nuclear weapons power.

Has there ever been a President as cold-hearted as Joe Biden?  No.  There never has.  No previous president in US history has been as willing to sacrifice America, American lives, and American power and standing in the world solely for political purposes.  Are his traitorous actions purely political?  Perhaps his motives are personal as well.  Biden has been selling his soul for money for decades; to China, to Ukraine, to Pakistan.  How else can he explain his massive wealth and multiple mansions on a salary of $174k?  He cannot. [...] Every sentient American surely knows by now about Biden's plagiarism, his pathological lying about everything from his law school record to his fabricated exploits around the world.  Everyone surely knows by now of Hunter Biden's depravity, all of which China has proof of (as did the FBI in December of 2019).  Just as the truth about the covid vaccines is strictly suppressed, so was the depth and breadth of the Biden family's corruption.  The media, print and electronic, deranged by their irrational hatred of Donald Trump, covered up the truth about the Biden family's unscrupulousness.

7 Major Biden Disasters in 7 Months.  Joe Biden's first half-year in office concluded with a string of disasters and failures to deliver on his campaign rhetoric.  Afghanistan:  Of course, the list must begin with Biden's hideously bungled withdrawal from Afghanistan, a debacle that claimed the lives of 13 American military personnel on Thursday.  Biden's Afghanistan disaster is likely to haunt the United States for years to come.  Terrorists are emboldened far beyond the previous Democrat administration's Islamic State disaster, which blew jihadi recruiting through the roof while President Barack Obama helplessly dithered, lectured stone-cold killers about being on "the wrong side of history," and mumbled that it could take decades to do anything more than contain or "degrade" the ISIS caliphate in Iraq and Syria.

The Blood On Joe Biden's Hands.  The best-case scenario under Joe Biden's Afghanistan plan was the United States running away from Fred Flintstone and Barney Rubble fast enough to avoid offending troglodytes who pass the time waiting till they find a 12-year-old girl to marry by sexually violating even younger boys.  Let that sink in.  Now there are 13 Americans dead among 170 slaughtered by terrorists.  But at least there are no mean tweets, right?  Unfortunately, there aren't any coherent actions or words either.  Joe Biden has blood on his hands he can't ever wash off.  The attack came a day after a report that the White House was of the firm belief that they deserved praise for their handling of a situation their incompetence created.  Politico reported, "The president and his team have taken it on the chin for the past week.  Now, amid a massive evacuation effort, they want kudos too."  Even before the attack, that was like OJ demanding people celebrate him for all the days he didn't cut people's heads off.  This is an unbelievable situation for the world's only remaining superpower.  A few months ago, I would have been less surprised to discover Joe Biden was actually a Taliban sleeper agent than he was so incompetent that he'd find a way to arm a terrorist state, look like a coward doing it, and run away from protecting the lives of Americans after they'd been attacked.

GOP Rep. Ellzey, former Naval aviator, wants to know 'who's behind the curtain' at White House.  Rep. Jake Ellzey, R-Texas, who deployed to Afghanistan three times as a Navy fighter pilot, told Fox News in an exclusive interview he wants to know "who's behind the curtain" after President Biden said during a Thursday press conference that he had been "instructed" to call on certain reporters.  "Ladies and gentlemen, they gave me a list here.  The first person I was instructed to call on was Kelly O'Donnell from NBC," said Biden, following his remarks on the ISIS-K attack that killed at least 13 American service members outside the Hamid Karzai international airport in Kabul.  Ellzey acknowledged that while it's common for presidents to solicit advice from staff, he said "they don't take instructions."

State Department contradicts Biden's remarks that there may be a 'kill list' provided to Taliban.  State Department spokesperson Ned Price seemingly contradicted President Biden's acknowledgment that the United States may have provided the Taliban with a list of names of Americans and allies in order to usher them to the airport.  "The idea that we are providing names or personally identifiable information to the Taliban in a way that exposes anyone to additional risk, that is simply wrong, simply wrong," Price said in response to a question about reports that the United States provided what some have called a "kill list" to the Taliban.  On Thursday, Fox News confirmed a Politico report that U.S. officials in Kabul gave the Taliban a list of American citizens, green card holders, and Afghan allies in an effort to grant them entry to the airport, which resulted in outrage from military officials behind the scenes.

Joe Biden Actually Checked His Watch During Transfer of Bodies at Dover and He Wasn't Even Subtle About It.  President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden were at the Dover Air Force Base Sunday morning [8/29/2021] for the dignified transfer of 11 of the 13 service members who lost their lives on Thursday.  While there, the president actually checked his watch.  And he wasn't subtle about it, not even close to it.  [Tweets]  The bodies arrived last night, but the president did not go to meet them.  To be fair, Julio had on good authority that some family members did not want him there.

Not Incompetence:  Afghanistan and Globalism.  Democrats found the perfect puppet to happily sit in the Oval Office and lie and deceive with total ease.  In the first two weeks of Biden's presidency, he signed 28 executive orders to reassure international globalists and erase anything Trump had done.  The goal was to bring back trust and confidence in the promises American globalists have given international fellow globalists, especially China.  The message was "we're back in charge," and "never mind the four-year Trump glitch; we'll erase it from history by impeaching him twice."  Now they must rush to eliminate America's borders to pave the way for accomplishing the implementation of "Region 1." [...] Globalist's "Region 2" is coming along well.  Which region will fall to the globalist plan next?  Will it be Taiwan, given to China?  After giving Russia the pipeline, what's next?  Ukraine?  The actions of socialist-globalist Democrats speak for themselves, and no, they are not incompetent; rather, they are deceptive.  They're hell-bent on executing their globalist dreams without debate, elections, or transparency.  They are reckless with the future of America and determined to move with a historically proven failed plan with no guarantees from tyrannical nations who are happy to be given a weakened America without borders.

Here's The Full List Of Every Lie Joe Biden Has Told As President:  Part 60.  Just over 100 days into his time in the White House and the end to President Joe Biden's lies is nowhere in sight.  Here is part two of The Federalist's rigorous coverage keeping the Biden administration accountable with substantive fact-checking throughout the president's tenure.

GOP: Biden Has Blood On His Hands, Should Be Removed From Office.  Figures across the GOP have urged Joe Biden to be held responsible for the attacks at the Kabul airport and called for his resignation.  Reports on Thursday detailed the calls, including a tweet by former UN ambassador Nikki Haley.  Haley asserted Biden should step down or be removed for his handling of Afghanistan.  However, she acknowledged it would leave Kamala Harris in charge and added Harris would be 10 times worse.  GOP conference Chair Elise Stefanik said Biden has blood on his hands.  She went on to say the "national security and humanitarian disaster" was the result of his incompetent leadership.

"They just put all those Afghans on a kill list!" — Biden officials gave Taliban list of American citizens and Afghan allies to expedite evacuation process.  We are just learning today that Biden officials actually gave the Taliban a list of the names of American citizens and Afghan allies to expedite the evacuation process.  This has caused great consternation and pushback from lawmakers and defense officials: [...] Biden has said from the beginning that we were depending on the Taliban for a successful evacuation.  Little did we know just how much we were depending on them.  Now, as thousands of Americans and Afghan allies are left behind by Biden because he's too much of a coward to stand up to the Taliban, these 'targets' have to worry about the Taliban tracking them down and executing them.  Biden is setting up a potential bloodbath because of his irresponsible and horrific evacuation policies.

Unreal: Biden Team Gave the Taliban a List of Americans and Afghan Allies.  The Biden Administration has shown stunning incompetence throughout the whole Afghanistan debacle.  But this latest news may take the cake for outrageous and inconceivable action.  According to Politico, U.S. officials gave the Taliban a list of names of American citizens, green card holders, and Afghan allies to grant entry into the airport. [...] This is insane, since the Taliban is looking to kill anyone who worked with the U.S., and has beheaded and killed Afghan allies in the past.  Why would you give them what amounts to a "kill list" or hostage list?  They are our enemies.  Now, even if they don't nab those allies at the airport, they will have their name and can hunt them down.  It's already been reported that the Taliban has been going house to house to hunt people down to kill them and their families and you give them a list?  Who in the military thought that this was a good idea?  U.S. Central Command is refusing to comment on the report, which means you know it's true.

Nikki Haley, other Republicans call for Biden's resignation and impeachment after attack at Kabul airport.  A long list of GOP politicians are calling for President Biden to either be impeached or resign from office after the deadly attacks near Harmid Karzai International Airport in Afghanistan.  Nikki Haley, former ambassador to the United Nations, called for Biden's resignation — but expressed concern about leaving Vice President Kamala Harris in charge.  "Should Biden step down or be removed for his handling of Afghanistan?  Yes," she tweeted.  "But that would leave us with Kamala Harris which would be ten times worse.  God help us."  Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo., added:  "To say that today's loss of American lives in Kabul is sickening does not begin to do justice to what has happened.  It is enraging.  And Joe Biden is responsible.  It is now clear beyond all doubt that he has neither the capacity nor the will to lead.  He must resign."

Biden Subcontracts U.S. Security to Terrorists.  Even as suicide bombers attacked the Kabul airport on August 26 — killing, at this writing, at least 12 U.S. servicemen and scores of civilians — visitors to the Al Jazeera website could read an interview with Khalil Ur-Rahman Haqqani, the Taliban official and U.S.-designated terrorist who is responsible for security in the Afghan capital.  "If we can defeat superpowers, surely we can provide safety to the Afghan people," said Haqqani, whose guards brandish the helmets, night-vision goggles, small arms, and camouflage the Americans left behind.  "All of those people who left this country, we will assure them of their safety," Haqqani went on.  "You're all welcome back in Afghanistan."  He's lying, of course.  Lying is what terrorists do.  Haqqani's forces can't protect the Afghan people from ISIS, or, apparently, from the Taliban itself.  The Islamic militia is executing civilians and former members of the Afghan National Army, according to the United Nations.

Joe Biden Reveals in Latest Press Conference He Is "Instructed" on Whom He Can Call.  Joe Biden said during the 2020 Presidential campaign that he had the most experience of any person who ever ran for President because of the decades he spent in the United States Senate and eight years as Vice President for Barack Obama.  He knows the players in the Congrees [sic] and has palled around with them for decades.  He knows the players on the international stage and considers them friends in some cases.  He's been in the rooms where some of the biggest decisions in this country's history were made.  So now he has assumed the Presidency, and even with all the experience this current occupant of the Oval Office has from all his years in the swamp, he revealed during Thursday afternoon's [8/26/2021] press conference that someone tells him whom to call upon for questions.  Actually, he said he was "instructed" whom to call upon.

Biden Was the Best Democrats Had to Offer, and Now He Has to Go.  In 2020, the Democratic primary revealed that the most popular, most competent person to lead the Democratic Party was Joe Biden.  Truly, they tried to convince us when he was elected, the Renaissance of American Governance has returned and the world will respect the United States once more.  The grown-ups are back in charge.  There would be no more mean tweets.  Sanity had come back to the White House.  The Biden administration has been stepping into crisis after crisis since he took office with no actual response and no plan to any of the urgent issues facing the country.  But Biden wanted one thing to cement his legacy:  An end to the war in Afghanistan.  He wanted our troops out, and he wanted them out before the 20th anniversary of September 11.  [Regardless of] what the military leaders and intelligence community say, it was going to happen.

In [a] Hopeless Speech, Biden Refuses Liability For [the] Afghanistan Crisis He Created.  After delaying addressing the nation for most of the day, President Joe Biden is still avoiding the liability for the Afghanistan crisis and the deaths that have occurred during evacuation efforts.  In his White House speech, Biden called the at least 12 U.S. service members who were killed in the explosions heroes but spent minutes comparing the loss of his son Beau Biden to cancer to the pain his administration's incompetence has caused military families.  Biden claimed he was "outraged" at the situation and attack, which took more than 100 lives, but only repeated lies and deflected blame for his botched withdrawal that caused the American evacuation crisis which he celebrated last week as being death-free.

Biden's Disastrous Foreign Policy Instincts.  Former Defense Secretary Robert Gates wasn't kidding when he noted that Biden has "been wrong on nearly every major foreign policy and national security issue over the past four decades."  As a senator, he voted against the Persian Gulf War in 1991.  More than a decade later, he didn't merely support the Iraq invasion in 2003, but he championed it. [...] In more recent times, Biden was a proponent of the failed Iran deal and a harsh critic of the successful Abraham Accords.  As with the elimination of Osama bin Laden, Biden opposed taking out the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps terrorist leader Gen. Qasem Soleimani, accusing then-President Donald Trump of putting us on the precipice of an "endless war in the Middle East."  And, for the past 20 years, Biden has been on every side of nearly every position on Afghanistan — usually the wrong one at the wrong time.  It's surreal that a person so uncannily incompetent, so tenaciously wrong on foreign policy, could rise to the presidency, but here we are.

Biden Tried to Send Pallets of Cash to the Taliban as Kabul Fell.  On August 14, Secretary of State Blinken spoke with Afghanistan's former president and promised that the Biden administration would provide a bulk shipment of dollars.  The next day Kabul fell.  On that same call, Afghanistan's former leader had agreed to surrender power to the Taliban.  The Biden administration had effectively agreed to provide a massive infusion of cash to the Taliban.  But the final deal fell through, the Afghan government fled, and the Taliban took Kabul.  The bulk shipment of dollars never did arrive.  Biden's diplomats scrambled to evacuate from Kabul.  Ajmal Ahmady, the governor of DAB, Afghanistan's central bank, already had a ticket and headed to the airport.  He managed to get on a military plane.  Since then he's tweeted that he was warned that the Taliban had come looking for him.  The Taliban were hoping to get their hands on Afghanistan's money, but much of it is in the United States.  The most tangible part of Afghanistan's assets, $1.3 billion in gold, is sitting in downtown Manhattan, a little bit south of Ground Zero, in the vaults of the Federal Reserve.

Biden Says Quiet Part Out Loud:  "The First Person I was Instructed to Call On...".  President Joe Biden admitted someone else is calling the shots.  [Tweet with video clip]

Biden Administration Spikes the Football on Afghanistan a Little Too Early.  The White House this week prematurely celebrated the success of President Joe Biden's evacuation of U.S. citizens and allies from Afghanistan.  Administration officials boasted that they were "over performing" their own metrics and "defying expectations," even comparing the withdrawal operation to the Berlin airlift.  On Thursday [8/26/2021], that characterization of the evacuation effort fell apart, as suicide bombers struck the gates of the Kabul airport and killed at least a dozen American service members and 60 Afghans.

Joe Biden Admits Americans Will Be Left Behind in Afghanistan After Withdrawing Troops.  President Joe Biden tacitly admitted Thursday [8/26/2021] that some Americans in Afghanistan would remain in the country even after troops were withdrawn on August 31.  "We will continue, after our troops are withdrawn, to find means by which we find any American who wishes to get out of Afghanistan," Biden said.  The president said his military commanders told him the mission to get Americans and Afghan allies out of Afghanistan by the deadline would succeed.  But Biden defined the mission as "to get as many people out as we can within the time frame that's allotted" — not staying until every American is evacuated.

Biden Blames Generals for Abandoning Bagram Air Base:  Admin 'May Have' Given Taliban a List of Stranded Americans.  During his press conference on Thursday following the terrorist attack in Afghanistan that killed 13 U.S. servicemembers, President Biden blamed his generals for the decision to leave Bagram Air Base behind and did not deny reports that his administration gave the Taliban a list of Americans stranded in the region.  On the issue of Bagram Air Base, President Biden said that he made the decision to essentially abandon the location upon his generals' advice[.]

Biden Mumbles, Stumbles Through Address on Afghanistan Terror Attacks.  Despite Biden's words of assurance, Americans stranded in Iraq are still in great peril, as are members of the U.S. military.  Sadly, we have a commander-in-chief who doesn't seem fully able to grasp the gravity of the situation and the enormity of the disaster he's wrought.  It shouldn't have taken nine hours for him to get to the podium, but that's been Biden's modus operandi, both during the presidential campaign and at pivotal moments in his presidency.  Biden is adrift, out of touch, and irresolute — a failed president who appears to be merely going through the motions.  Exactly what the nation doesn't need in a time of crisis.

This Is How Trump Would Have Saved Americans in Afghanistan, But Biden Said No.  Thanks to the Biden administration, Taliban terrorists have taken control of Afghanistan.  President Joe Biden's reckless and rushed withdrawal from the country came with numerous consequences.  American citizens have been left trapped in Afghanistan, terrorist groups such as ISIS are regaining a foothold in the region and, as of Thursday, at least ten U.S. soldiers have been killed in suicide bombings.  Without a doubt, the Biden-led Afghanistan withdrawal is one of the worst foreign policy disasters of all time.  As the situation continues to devolve, it's worth remembering that it didn't have to be this way.  Biden was given a much better plan — a methodical, carefully constructed proposal for withdrawal.  Sadly, he scrapped this plan because of the man who made it:  former President Donald Trump.

Righting the Ship of State through Extraordinary Measures.  There's a cancer growing on the presidency.  The president displays symptoms of delusion and even dementia, but it is unlikely that he will resign from office.  The president is so addled that even if his family were to stage an intervention, he would still cling to power.  You see, the president knows things that the rest of us don't.  The president knows that handing over an entire nation to terrorists and arming them with sophisticated weaponry was unavoidable; it had to happen.  So, how do we irradiate, medicate, surgically excise, or otherwise treat our little cancer problem licking obscene quantities of ice cream?  If the president won't resign, then Congress should impeach and remove him from office.  Impeachment, however, starts in the House of Representatives, and that body is led by Nancy Pelosi, who just oversaw two failed impeachments of the dread Orange Man, Donald Trump, the ultimate outsider.  Given that, how likely is it that Pelosi would go after the ultimate insider and a member of her own party?

Senile or not, Biden has betrayed America.  President Biden's dementia no longer explains the destructive policies his administration has implemented since taking office.  The horror that took thirteen American lives in Kabul on Wednesday is intentional; there is no other explanation.  This is purposeful.  Biden may be out to lunch, but those around him are not.  They are calling the shots; it is Klain, Blinken, Austin, Milley, McKenzie, Sullivan, et al., who have brought us to the lowest the nation has ever found itself:  voluntarily defeated, at home and abroad.  Susan Rice, Eric Holder, and Obama are likely part of the left's destroy-America crowd.  Pelosi and Schumer are their second string, their tools.

The Closing of the Progressive Mind.  [Scroll down]  Let's look at the big issue where this really comes into play:  Biden is a fumbling, senile disaster who "won" by virtue of total election fraud, and virtually every Progressive's individual life and the country as a whole was incomparably better off under President Trump.  For many committed progressives, this was the scenario:  "It's tough to admit, but all I wanted was anyone but Trump.  I think of myself as 'smart' and analytical, but all I could taste was anyone but Trump.  The specific person didn't matter.  I'd have voted for King Kong."  Actual policy meant nothing to them.  Not the record low unemployment numbers for blacks, Hispanics, women and Asians.  Not the low gasoline prices, not NATO members paying their fair share, not finally levying tariffs on China and refusing to be their economic punching bag, not the American-worker-friendly USMCA trade agreement replacing the fatally-flawed NAFTA, not finally ending unchecked, out-of-control illegal immigration, not the rebirth of the U.S. military after being shamefully ignored by Obama for eight years, nothing.  In their deepest thoughts — never to be uttered in public — this is what many progressives are thinking now:  "I was totally sold on style and appearance.  I was totally "Orange Man bad:"  "I still hate President Trump personally, but I see now that Biden is an unmitigated catastrophe, both domestically and internationally.  His utter incompetence is costing American lives.  I see that he's not coherent and I know he's not in charge.  I don't know who is and that scares me, but I'll never admit it.  To save face, I've got to figure out a way to blame Biden's failures on Trump."

Hiding behind his tears — Sorry Biden's decisions led to Kabul carnage.  The deep grief on President Biden's face as his eyes swelled with tears was painful to watch.  But his personal suffering cannot exonerate him from the responsibility for what happened in Kabul.  Nor can his obscenely shameful effort to shift the blame to former President Donald Trump and even his own military commanders be taken seriously.  Biden says the buck stops with him, but he doesn't really mean it.  When the enemy strikes with deadly results, it's somebody else's fault.  That's not leadership and it certainly isn't presidential.  If he truly accepted responsibility, Biden would own up to the obvious fact that his actions played a big role in this horrific outcome.  Instead, his claim that every commander agreed with him on the withdrawal plan is a bald-faced lie.

Obama ethics chief blasts Hunter Biden's art scheme as 'absolutely appalling'.  Former President Obama's ethics chief on Wednesday [8/25/2021] ripped the Biden White House for brokering a deal last month so that Hunter Biden, and the American public at large, would never know who was buying his paintings.  Walter Shaub appeared on Law & Crime's "Objections" podcast, where he did not mince words about how he felt about the behavior of the White House, President Biden, and his son, Hunter, regarding his upcoming art shows in Los Angeles and New York City.  Hunter's paintings are priced between $75,000 and $500,000, despite his lack of artistic experience.  "There is simply no way an artist who has never even juried into a community center art fair is going to suddenly show up in New York selling art for half a million a pop," Shaub said.  "Let's talk about the magnitude of this...That's $6.5 million going to the president's son for being the president's son, not for being an artist and I just think that's absolutely appalling."

Biden's dog Major bit Secret Service members 8 days in row, emails show.  President Biden's German shepherd Major attacked many more people than the White House has disclosed, according to newly released emails.  The documents indicate that Major bit members of the Secret Service eight days in a row in early March — though only one such incident was publicly acknowledged.  At least one White House visitor also was bitten in early March, according to the emails, which were released Thursday by the conservative transparency group Judicial Watch, which slammed the "cover-up" of the incidents.  "We're sure Major is a good dog but these records show he was involved in many more biting incidents than the Biden White House has publicly acknowledged," said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.  "It is disturbing to see a White House cover-up of numerous injuries to Secret Service and White House personnel by the Bidens' family pet."

Laughing, snarking, lying Bloody Joe killed 12 brave marines and 60 innocent Afghans today.  Joe Biden recently learned a trick from Kamala.  When he's asked a legitimate question that he doesn't want to answer, he laughs.  This buys him time and maybe even avoids altogether the necessity for an answer.  Sometimes it works.  But it works less well when the question is about human lives at stake.  It's all part of his flippancy, snarkiness and gaslighting as he tries to divert attention away from the humanitarian catastrophe that he created in his Afghanistan abandonment.  His strategy seems to have been something like "ready, fire, aim."  It was "ready, evacuate the military, then bring them back ill-equipped and badly outnumbered to save some of the civilians."  Civilians that are scattered around a country the size of Texas.  This guy couldn't organize a company picnic.

One Day Has Arrived.  The entire Democratic party media cabal spent 4 years trashing Trump in order to enshrine a senile old fool in the White House who wasn't presidential grade material even in his prime.  Nor is his VP, the laugh-o-matic woman of color.  So I don't know who is actually running the show, maybe presidential advisor Susan Rice and her handlers, which would explain the fiasco that is Afghanistan.

Was This Where Biden's Detachment from Afghanistan Was Exposed?  Biden botched out withdrawal from Afghanistan.  He caved to terrorists.  We're following their timeline.  There was chaos at the airport in Kabul.  Our allies feel betrayed, thousands of Americans are still stranded in the country.  And now, we have US troops dead on the ground from today's bombings around the airport.  At least four US Marines are dead.  A total of 11 service members have been killed.  Given the chaos around the airport, this was coming.  ISIS is on the prowl as is al-Qaeda and contrary to what Biden has been saying — it's not easy to get to the airport if you're an American marooned.  The Taliban have checkpoints everywhere and they're seizing passports.  Biden's response is to trust the Taliban, not expand the security perimeter which obviously was needed.  The serial incompetence as we exited in a way more disgraceful than Saigon 1975 could be centered on Biden simply not caring about the situation.

Biden Embraces Defeat.  [Scroll down]  The exit from Afghanistan, then, appears designed to accomplish two things: first, to demoralize the American military and the American people.  Over 22,000 American service personnel have been killed or injured in Afghanistan.  Every American knows someone who served there.  Knowing full well that the Afghan military would not defend the country, there could be little doubt that the United States was turning the country over to the Taliban.  Moreover, the US did so with the appearance of being run out of the country in shame and defeat.  One can only assume this was meant to demonstrate to American servicemen that their sacrifice had been in vain, and to the American people that our cause of defending America from the scourge of radical Islam was not just.  How else are sensible people to view the footage of killings, chaos, desperation, harassment, and contempt for the US and our citizens in Kabul?  Taken together these images are far more effective tools of propaganda than nearly anything Al-Qaeda and ISIS has employed over the past two decades.  Their message is clear:  America is weak and resistance to Islam is futile.

Joe Biden sure does a lot of good things for China.  I wonder why.
Biden White House Approves Licensing Deal For Chinese Communist Party-Linked Huawei, Reversing Trump-Era Hardline.  The Biden White House granted the Chinese Communist Party-linked firm Huawei — which was crippled by Trump-era sanctions — licenses to purchase American auto chips, according to reports.  The decision follows the Beijing-backed tech firm hiring several lobbyists, including the brother of Biden's White House Counselor Steve Ricchetti and CNN guests who have pushed the Trump-Russia collusion hoax.  "U.S. officials have approved license applications worth hundreds of millions of dollars for China's blacklisted telecom company Huawei to buy chips for its growing auto component business, two people familiar with the matter said," Reuters reported.

Hey, Biden Voters!.  The Democrats put up a candidate who was plainly in mental decline.  It was obvious every time he spoke.  But you didn't pay terribly close attention to his speeches.  The sources from which you get your "news" carefully clipped out all of the bits of his appearances in which his befuddlement was manifest.  If you heard someone speak out about his senility, you dismissed the charges out of hand.  Biden also had a less-than-stellar professional history.  He'd spent decades in the Senate as little more than a fixture, an empty suit, a vapid, smiling shill for the credit-card companies and other corporations based in his shabby little state.  In the lead-up to the 2020 election, mountains of evidence were made public indicating that Biden was even more deeply corrupt than we already knew, taking massive bribes from nefarious foreign powers.  Yes, that story was banned from social media.  Still, you could have known about it if you'd had the slightest bit of curiosity — and the slightest sense of civic responsibility.

Joe Biden, With Eyes Bloodshot and Five Hours Late, Insults Everyone Watching With Surreal Presser.  Joe Biden finally gave his big Afghanistan presser this afternoon [8/24/2021].  Arriving five hours late for the event, the President took the stage.  His eyes were bloodshot and glazed over with his pace of speaking obviously labored as he began to robotically read the teleprompter.  What then transpired was one of the most insulting, tone-deaf spectacles I've ever seen from a president.  Instead of getting right into the crisis in Afghanistan, Biden inexcusably began the presser by plugging his "Build Back Better" agenda.  No, I'm not kidding.  It was absolutely surreal.  [Tweet]  Biden would go on to spend minutes talking about the "climate crisis" and bragging about Democrats passing a "voting rights" bill (that will die in the Senate).  Before he even mentioned the disaster unfolding in Afghanistan, he praised Nancy Pelosi for her work on the budget bill and claimed that he had produced 4 million jobs.  It was disgustingly disconnected from reality.

Why only NOW is there mounting concern over President Biden's mental health?  A Daily Mail story from last week reported on the growing concern of doctors and other health experts about the mental state of Joe Biden, the oldest American president ever. [...] This story only highlights a growing slew of news stories and op-eds that have appeared recently during the ongoing debacle in Afghanistan, in both the right and leftwing press, that have noticed how President Biden appears repeatedly confused in interviews while showing signs that he does not quite understand what is going on around him.  Of course, for the press and the political class to recognize these facts now, after Biden has become president, is equivalent to closing the barn door after the animals have escaped.  As I noted in October 2020, before the election, these cognitive issues have been obvious for the last two years, and had been getting steadily worse throughout 2020 during the election campaign.

Irish Soldiers Calls Biden The Word No One Is Supposed To Say On Live TV.  A Northern Irish soldier who was stationed for years in Afghanistan had a few choice words for Joe Biden over his disastrous handling of the Afghani withdrawal.  During an interview with RT, an Irish soldier by the name of Trevor actually went to the place no one is supposed to go on live TV, calling Biden a retard.  [Video clip]

Sources: No Biden firings.  President Biden isn't inclined to fire any senior national security officials over the chaos in Kabul unless the situation drastically deteriorates or there's significant loss of American life, people familiar with the matter tell Axios.  Dismissing national security advisor Jake Sullivan, Secretary of State Antony Blinken, Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin or CIA Director William Burns would be tantamount to admitting a mistake, and the president stands by his decision.

Biden Refuses to Answer Questions on Afghanistan, Flees Podium as Reporter asks About Stranded Americans.  Joe Biden was several hours late for his Tuesday press conference on his botched Afghanistan withdrawal.  After mumbling for 10 minutes and struggling to read the teleprompter, Joe Biden shuffled away from the lectern and refused to answer questions.  Biden confirmed the US is taking orders from the Taliban.  "The completion by August 31 depends upon the Taliban continuing to cooperate and allow access to the airport," said Biden of reports he is bowing to the Taliban and sticking to an August 31 deadline.

Likely Long-Term Ripple Effects of Precipitous Pullout From Afghanistan.  What has happened in Afghanistan will not stay in Afghanistan, but will have a ripple effect throughout the region and beyond.  In remarks Friday at the White House, President Joe Biden again proved he is out of touch with reality.  Responding to criticism that America's credibility has been damaged due to his precipitous withdrawal of U.S. troops, Biden said, "I have seen no question of our credibility from our allies around the world."  Several allies have been critical, among them German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who met with Biden at the White House last month.  She called the withdrawal "an extremely bitter development."  We were not in this alone, after all.  It is right for our allies who fought valiantly with us to feel betrayed.

Is There Any Job That's Worse Than Working For Joe Biden's Communications Team?  There may not be any job worse than working for President Joe Biden's communications team. [...] Biden's communications staffers are presented almost daily with the near-Herculean task of cleaning up whatever the president said last; [...] For example, White House communications director Kate Bedingfield spent most of Friday morning trying to explain why Biden had taken a vacation while Afghanistan proverbially burned.  He returned to the White House only to scold Republican governors for not forcing children to wear face masks in school and refused to take a single question on the chaos in Kabul.  In the wake of all that, Bedingfield argued that Biden "never shied away from taking questions," prompting an understandably bewildered look from "Morning Joe" co-host Willie Geist.

Joe Biden [is] groveling as Taliban calls the shots.  Neville Chamberlain can rest easy.  He is no longer the most shameful appeaser in modern history.  Joe Biden is the new champion of cowards.  Biden didn't just blink in the face of terror.  He is groveling before the Taliban, acknowledging their victory and laying the groundwork for their legitimacy as the rulers of Afghanistan.  Who could imagine any American president allowing murderous thugs to set the terms of our military's surrender?  But that's what has been happening and it crystalized Tuesday [8/24/2021].  The Taliban declared that no more Afghans should go to the Kabul airport, that those already there should leave and then they shut the main airport road.  For all practical purposes, those words and actions ended the mercy mission of getting our allies out.  And Biden didn't object.  Not even a whimper, just silent acceptance.

With Biden's latest statement, we know who's calling the shots in Afghanistan.  There's a lot of speculation about what's going to happen to the people trapped in Afghanistan and what Biden is going to do about their being trapped there.  The top contenders are either (a) that there are going to be massacres of both Americans and Afghans or (b) that, in addition to giving the Taliban $83 billion in state-of-the-art weapons and transport, we're going to give them additional billions to get them to release thousands of hostages.  Both scenarios are awful.

Awkward: Joe Biden Can't Explain Why He Picked Kamala Harris as His Vice President.  Well before he became the Democratic presidential nominee and even before then-Sen. Kamala Harris bowed out of the 2020 campaign before the first primary vote was even cast, Joe Biden was being urged, pressured, steamrolled, whatever you want to call it by the mainstream media and "woke" Democrats into picking a female as his running mate, preferably a black female. [...] Biden settled on Harris, who was viewed after the first primary debate in June 2019 to be Biden's staunchest adversary in the campaign.  But within weeks of her star rising after that first debate, her poll numbers fell.  Tulsi Gabbard scored a knockout punch against Harris during her second debate.  Polls were taken that summer that showed even a majority of black and female voters were not warming up to her.  Just a few months later, she dropped out.  But two summers after her presidential campaign cratered, Harris is still having a tough time of it, bumbling through one crisis after another along with getting hit with a surprising wave of bad press which has undoubtedly had an impact on her declining approval numbers.

Biden's crimes.  Where is Congress?  Biden has blown up the reputation of the US and proven that he and his band of milquetoasts are wholly without decency, ethics, and any sense of morality.  This is a bad bunch of people who have taken Obama's intent to bring America down a peg and doubled down.  They are orchestrating our defeat which, given what he has surrendered to the Taliban/Al Qaeda/ ISIS, may lead to our destruction.  So, why are the men and women of Congress not standing together demanding that these treasonous tools of China be removed from office immediately?  Who do they represent if not the American people?  Biden is putting their families at risk along with the rest of us.  Biden's clumsy and lethal withdrawal from Afghanistan proves, once and for all, his malevolence.  He opened the southern border to all comers on the first day of his administration.  He is hosting an invasion, welcoming migrants with covid, syphilis, AIDS, TB, and probably many more diseases, some long ago eradicated in the US.  They are gang members, cartel employees, and sex traffickers and of course there are innocents among them.  Biden is preventing the deportation of all of them.  This can only be a calculated plan to infect Americans with covid and other communicable diseases and the crime that will surely infect their communities.  And now he is vowing to bring tens of thousands of Afghani refugees to our cities and towns.

Joe Biden Caves to Taliban:  Sticks with August 31 Withdrawal Deadline.  President Joe Biden on Tuesday caved to the Taliban and pledged to honor the August 31 withdrawal deadline for U.S. personnel in Afghanistan, Reuters reported.  Biden's decision comes after Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid said Tuesday morning that the terrorists will accept "no extensions" to the August 31 deadline.

Biden Decides to Stick to August 31 Withdrawal Deadline amid Taliban Threats.  President Biden has decided to adhere to his initial August 31 deadline for withdrawing American forces from Afghanistan.  At a meeting with leaders of G7 nations, "the President conveyed that our mission in Kabul will end based on the achievement of our objectives," White House press secretary Jen Psaki said in a statement.  "He confirmed we are currently on pace to finish by August 31st."  Biden "also made clear that with each day of operations on the ground, we have added risk to our troops with increasing threats from ISIS-K, and that completion of the mission by August 31st depends on continued coordination with the Taliban," Psaki said.  "The President has asked the Pentagon and the State Department for contingency plans to adjust the timeline should that become necessary."

Joker Joe Biden can't laugh this Afghanistan debacle off.  The laughter was so off-kilter, it made you wonder if Joe Biden had taken leave of his senses during his mini-press conference Sunday [8/22/2021].  Americans are trapped behind enemy lines in Afghanistan.  Our troops at Kabul airport are faced with an uncontrollable surge of people so desperate to escape, they are dying in the crush.  America has suffered its worst self-inflicted humiliation and the free world is less safe — all because of his dumb decisions.  And he laughs?  A cold, inappropriate laugh, muscle memory deployed as a political weapon by a man operating on empty.

Dr. Jill and the fall of BidenFox & Friends Weekend host Rachel Campos-Duffy is catching a lot of flak for saying over the weekend what many of us noted during the campaign: that Joe Biden's loved ones should have spared this rapidly declining man the ordeal (and shame) of serving as POTUS when his health was obviously not up to the task. [...] As the debacle of abject surrender in Afghanistan unfolds and worsens, the commander in chief is barely working, frequently hidden away from the public, and quite obviously not up to they job. [...] Of course, I am not privy to the private conservations of the president and first lady, but given the frank admission that Mrs. Biden was animated by a lust for title in obtaining a doctorate in education with a term paper-length "dissertation" from a third tier school of education, I tend to see her as Lady McBiden, pushing and manipulating her hapless near-ward to keep her own grip on perks, title, and prerogatives.  A majority of the country now recognizes he is not mentally fit for the office he holds. [...] It's happened before with Edith Wilson.  It might well be happening now.

The Afghanistan Debacle Will Relegate the Current Ruling Class to the Dustbin of American History.  The disaster that is the withdrawal from Afghanistan coupled with other innumerable debacles that Joe Biden has singlehandedly precipitated in just seven months should not come as a surprise to anyone who has paid attention to his career.  His fifty years as a politician is littered with a litany of failures due to unforced errors, countless flip-flops, plagiarism, cupidity, mendacity and demagoguery all brought about by an overweening sense of infallibility and egocentrism.  Yet he was chosen by the current ruling class to be the figurehead in their devious scheme to defeat Donald Trump by any means possible in the 2020 election. [...] The current ruling elites were well aware of the failings of their fellow member of the fraternity.  Nonetheless, in their rabid fixation on ridding the nation, and more importantly themselves, of Donald Trump, they were determined to elevate a woefully compromised and incompetent Joe Biden to the Oval Office by overtly and perhaps illegally manipulating election laws and obfuscating or burying unflattering and negative stories about him and his family.

This Horrible Fiasco Demands Change.  The Biden Administration, after seven months, has shown no competence whatever in foreign or national security policy.  A moron would know that when evacuation is intended, the vulnerable, the civilians, the dependents, and the local supporters should all be evacuated under cover of the military and the armed forces should leave last in an orderly manner and in a well-covered and protected retreat.  The United States had the military capability to do this and the explanation for not doing it, from Secretary of State Antony Blinken, has been that everyone in Afghanistan and the whole world had plenty of notice that the Americans were leaving.  He should have been fired within one minute of uttering that statement.

Meltdown of a Superpower.  The inability of Lloyd Austin, Thoroughly Modern Milley, Tailspin Taylor and the other beribboned buffoons of the Potemtagon to adapt swiftly and effectively to ground conditions that are changing hour by hour is as telling as anything.  It is not just that General Milley and the Joint Buffoons of Staff cannot plan; they cannot execute.  Compare the 2,500 Americans evacuated from Kabul over this last week to the 7,000 Americans and allies choppered out of Saigon in just nineteen hours.  Can Milley do anything in nineteen hours other than call his tailor and order up his next row of ribbonry?  The Taliban know an American humiliation when they see one, and for the moment they're content to let Austin and Milley and the rest of Washington's worthless elite dig deeper.

Biden's Blustering His Way Into a Moral and Political Disaster.  Joe Biden was bluffing with a weak hand again.  Faced with the prospect that America's promised retreat from Afghanistan wouldn't be complete by month's end, the commander in chief began backtracking on his exit date last week.  "If there's American citizens left, we're going to stay to get them all out," he told ABC News.  But the enemy gets a vote now, thanks to our rush to the exits.  The Taliban called him on it, warning that his August 31 deadline — just one week from now! — was a "red line" and crossing it would "provoke a reaction."  Biden's counter?  To fold.  At least, that's my interpretation, based on the administration's comments on Monday.

Biden Says History Will Look on His Decision to Let the Taliban Take Over as the "Logical, Rational, Right Decision".  President Joe Biden thinks history will strongly support his Afghanistan decision which led to a Taliban takeover, deaths of innocent human beings, rape of children, oppression of women and the total waste of over $2 trillion.  During a train wreck of a speech on Sunday, Biden delivered comments from the White House where he continued to voice his support for his botched Afghanistan withdraw which has been widely criticized by most people in the media.  Biden went as far to say that his decision was not only right, but "logical" and "rational" as well.

Stand-by for the Real Insurrection — by the Democrats.  [Scroll down]  Biden did his share.  He signed a record number of executive orders, many of questionable constitutionality.  But now, as has been so painfully and obviously illuminated by the Afghanistan debacle, the president's competence and reliability are dramatically compromised by clearly advancing symptoms of old age.  Consequently, we are about to witness a genuine insurrection that will put Jan. 6, 2020, into proper perspective.  The unruly mob that stormed the Capitol was weak tea.  Even its most militant participants never intended to overthrow the government.  Their purpose was simply to have votes recounted and verified, which still hasn't been done.  What looms today is far more serious, infinitely more calculated and definitely more likely to achieve its goal:  to replace a sitting president in mid-term, probably against his will.  It ain't gonna be pretty.  It has the real possibility of resembling a banana republic coup d'état.

Empathizer-in-chief exposed as a lie.  The crisis in Afghanistan, mushrooming with the force and immensity of a nuclear bomb, is clearly a huge nuisance for President Biden.  His demeanor this week is that of a sullen 12-year-old boy whose summer vacation has been cut short.  He had to be dragged from Camp David to address the nation last Monday, and as the week went on he couldn't believe this was still a thing.  Irritation is his current mood. [...] Ladies and gentleman, the mask has come off.  This isn't old age.  This isn't political defiance or mental defect.  This is stone-cold callous disregard for human life — lives lost due to Biden's own insistence on a hasty withdrawal, keeping our allies in the dark.  American civilians on the ground, now in hiding from the Taliban, were given no heads-up.  As for the Afghans who risked their lives, and the lives of their family members, to help us — President Biden doesn't care about them either.

A reminder of how we got the Biden presidency.  [Scroll down]  But Biden didn't join the campaign trail — except when he did, and no one showed up.  On some occasions, even though Biden was briefly present, the media had to be satisfied with photos of Jill Biden or a local candidate actually doing the rah-rah stuff.  Basically, everyone knew this was not due to any other cause than Biden's declining cognitive faculties.  His online interludes from the basement in Delaware made that clear.  For months America hardly ever saw Joe Biden, but awarded him the biggest primary vote total ever.  The DNC was held "virtually" in August 2020, with almost no in-person appearances by top-drawer politicians, and Biden was nominated in absentia.  He chose as his running mate Kamala Harris, who had suspended her own presidential campaign for lack of interest in December 2019, and thereafter compiled a total of 844 primary votes in New Hampshire and Arkansas, where she was still on the ballot.  Harris did a few campaign events in the fall of 2020, although she wasn't going over well with voters, who failed to show up — as they continued to fail to show up for Biden's rare public outings.

The Drossy Touch of Joe Biden.  Biden has no clue about the actual destructive implementation of his toxic policies, and no concern upon whom these destructive agendas fall.  He vaguely assumes a lapdog left-wing media will repackage every Biden incoherence as Periclean, and every daily "lid" as Biden's escape for presidential research, deep reading, and intensive deliberation.  Biden appears to be about where Woodrow Wilson was in November 1919.

Biden confuses Afghan people with the country's currency.  Joe Biden's propensity for verbal gaffes haunted the US president again after he referred to Afghans as "Afghanis" — the country's currency.  The slip was noticed by Idrees Ali, a Pentagon correspondent with the Reuters news agency.  He voiced his irritation on Twitter [...] [Tweet]

The Media's Failure to Vet Candidate Biden Is Linked to the Afghanistan Debacle.  It was obvious to any sentient observer in 2020.  In defending himself on Afghanistan, Joe Biden fumbled his words, made weird comments and generally didn't seem up to the job of being president.  And the media pretended there was nothing to see.  This week Newsmax host Greg Kelly took the problem head on from a media perspective.  Afghanistan, Kelly observed with accompanying quite vivid video, "is a full blown disaster."  Which is most decidedly true.  After a video montage of Biden doing his bizarre kissing and hair-smelling routines, Kelly zeroed in again on Biden's competence — and the media.

Afghan Fallout:  Biden Blows Up His Entire Case For Being President.  For most of the past week, in the fires of the worst foreign policy crisis of his young administration, the president who won the White House on a promise of competence and compassion has had trouble demonstrating much of either."  That's not us saying that.  This is how the New York Times described the Afghanistan debacle, which is as sure a sign as any of how much trouble President Joe Biden is in right now.  But we'd go further than the Times.  Biden's backers — and Biden himself — didn't just portray Joe as competent and empathetic.  They said he was experienced, thoughtful, trustworthy, and had sound judgment.  That he'd unite the country, and restore America's standing in the world.  That he was, unlike Donald Trump, presidential.  It was the basis of Biden's entire presidential campaign, in fact. [...] Who can say any of that now with a straight face?

CBS Poll:  Majority of Americans No Longer Believe Biden Is Competent, Admit Botched Afganistan Withdrawal.  The majority of Americans no longer believe President Joe Biden is competent in his role as the Commander-in-Chief, according to a CBS News poll.  Fifty-one percent of the respondents said Biden is not competent in his position as president.  This is compared to only 49 percent who said he is.  Additionally, the poll found that 52 percent of the respondents did not feel the president has been focused.  The poll was taken during and after the fall of the now-Taliban-controlled Kabul, Afghanistan, when Biden botched the U.S. troops' withdrawal from the country.

The Rotten Edifice Revealed.  Doubtless you have read or heard comments like those of the TV journalist Jen Griffen about Joe Biden's brief remarks on Friday regarding Afghanistan.  "I'm having a hard time digesting what we heard," she said, "because I couldn't fact-check it fast enough in real-time because there were so many misrepresentations of what is happening on the ground."  Bottom line:  "This was just an alternate reality that was presented to us from the White House."  I presume what she had in mind were statements by Biden like this:  "We know of no instance where the Taliban are not letting our citizens through the checkpoints freely."  Or, in response to a question from the Associated Press, that he has seen "no question of our credibility from our allies around the world."  The problem is, of course, the wondrous world of instant communications.  We have all seen these videos of the Taliban manhandling the crowds outside the gates of the airport, not to mention the scads of anxious reports from people trapped in their homes, awaiting a knock on the door from the Taliban, and news reports of the condemnation of the Biden Administration by the British Parliament.

Joe Biden, Sinking into the Sand.  Put bluntly, Biden is not as advertised.  He was supposed to bring a divided nation together.  He promised to govern not with an iron fist, but with a velvet glove.  Now that hand has trouble finding his mask.  Joe represented himself as a serious candidate, well versed in affairs of state.  Instead, we are saddled with a cipher in the White House, a compromised head of state who takes in teleprompter content through his beady eyes and drones it out through his thin lips.  In many U.S. states, there are "lemon laws" that provide a remedy for purchases of cars and other consumer goods to compensate for products that fail to meet standards of quality and performance.  If the home you buy comes with unhappy surprises, there are legal remedies.  The Federal Trade Commission enforces truth in adverting laws.  Nothing like this applies to politicians who disappoint.

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene to submit articles of impeachment on Joe Biden.  Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) announced Thursday [8/19/2021] that she will submit articles of impeachment on Joe Biden on Friday in response to the United State's disastrous exit from Afghanistan that left thousands of Americans trapped behind enemy lines.  "Joe Biden is failing America and he needs to be impeached," Greene stated.  "I do have articles of impeachment drawn up to submit tomorrow because I believe in firing people when they're corrupt and they do a bad job," Representative Greene said.

What Afghanistan tells us about Team Biden's incompetence.  Last year, during the presidential campaign, Joe Biden promised the American people his administration would be characterized by order, discipline, experience, and, above all, competence.  That has turned out to be spectacularly and obviously wrong.  As we watch the spiraling disaster that is the withdrawal — which, unlike its antecedent collapse in Saigon, is likely to get worse, not better in the coming weeks — fundamental questions arise about the competence of the Biden administration and what the answers might mean for the remainder of its agenda. [...] There are seldom two meetings on the presidential schedule, and there have only been a handful of trips to places other than Delaware.  Announcements of the closure of the news-making portion of the day ("lids") have been called as early as 11 am.  During and after the fall of Kabul, the president was at Camp David, apparently by himself.  More disconcertingly, elements of the 82nd Airborne Division were placed on alert the morning of August 12th.  Yet five days later, the West Wing remained largely empty.  This egregious absence of senior staff, while our young soldiers try their best to extract Americans and allies under tough circumstances, is inexplicable and inexcusable.  Mr. Biden has given fewer than 10 in-person on-camera interviews so far, compared to the dozens both of his immediate predecessors had given at this point in their presidencies.  This leadership, or lack thereof, and its tempo dates back to the campaign and is exceedingly unusual for a sitting president.

Former British Commander in Afghanistan Calls for Joe Biden's Court-Martial.  Col. Richard Kemp, CBE, joined Mark Levin on 'Life, Liberty & Levin' this week following fall of Afghanistan. [...] During his interview with Mark Levin[,] Col. Kemp said the fall of Afghanistan has devastating effects on NATO.  "President Biden has completely destroyed his credibility single-handedly... Al-Qaeda and the Islamic State are strong in Afghanistan.  They will operate freely.  And they can operate more freely than before 9-11.  Jihadists from around the world will train, flock to Afghanistan... There is no one more who is cheering this than Russia and China.  They will now see they have pretty much an open field... In my opinion.  I don't say this often, and I don't say this lightly.  And I've never said this about anybody else.  Any other leader in this position.  People are talking about impeaching President Biden.  I don't think President Biden should be impeached.  He's the Commander in Chief of the US Armed Forces who has just essentially surrendered to the Taliban.  He shouldn't be impeached.  He should be court-martialed for betraying the United States of America and the United States Armed Forces."

If Only We Could Court-Martial President Biden.  [Ret.  Col. Richard] Kemp might not be aware that under our Constitution, a U.S. President cannot be court-martialed, as he is a civilian.  That's not to say he doesn't deserve to be.  We can joke all we want about taking the keys away from Grandpa, but it's too late for that.  He has already crashed the car. [...] Court-martialing Biden would be a great start, and I wish we could do it.  But it's that whole disreputable crew — the Democrat leadership — that is responsible for getting Biden (and Kamala) nominated, for knowingly covering up his cognitive inadequacy, for changing rules to make it easier to elect him (I won't even go into the various means of suspected cheating), and to essentially run his administration.

The Never-Trump National Review now laments the (alleged) election of Joe Biden.
Joe Biden Is Who We Said He Was.  Joe Biden has badly, visibly bungled America's withdrawal from Afghanistan.  He has compounded the problem with his sluggish and dishonest public statements.  This has gone so badly that even people and institutions that are normally sympathetic to Biden and his party have noticed.  American allies have been appalled, and vocal about it.  What is slowly dawning on people is that Biden's critics were right about him all along.  Not since James Buchanan has America had a president who came so prepared by experience for the job, yet had so little clue how to do it.

When the Peter Principle applies to the Oval Office, you get disaster.  The voters in Delaware were content to return Joe to the Senate every six years.  His legislative contributions were minor or nonexistent.  So what if it was suggested that he was on the wrong side of every foreign policy issue during his tenure?  But then along came Barack Obama, and everything changed.  The president-to-be chose Biden as his running mate because of what Obama later claimed to be "a gut feeling" that Biden was right for the job.  Biden lent years of service to the relative newcomer Obama but was enough of a lightweight to pose no threat in his subservient role. [...] Now, because of a perfect storm of a COVID pandemic, a corrupt media, and a badly divided Democrat party, old Sleepy Joe is the POTUS.  Heaven only knows what other debacles await.  One would think the Afghanistan disaster, the southern border mess, burgeoning inflation, and the return to OPEC energy dependence would be enough.  But remember:  Biden has the ability to mess everything up.

Joe Biden's aides were 'too afraid' to quiz him and his national security adviser Jake Sullivan over key decisions made in run-up to US withdrawal from Afghanistan.  The President is accused of insisting on recalling US troops ahead of the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks on New York and Washington DC, and allegedly ignored warnings that it would not leave the military enough time to get American nationals and allies out.  A former defence official in regular contact with senior White House aides suggested that there was not much pushback from concerned administration staffers because they were 'too afraid' of challenging Mr Biden and his National Security Adviser, Jake Sullivan.

Britain loses patience with Sleepy Joe:  Tony Blair brands Biden an 'imbecile' over 'tragic, dangerous and unnecessary' decision to quit Afghanistan.  Tony Blair has blasted Joe Biden's 'imbecilic' decision to withdraw US troops from Taliban-controlled Afghanistan, calling the President's scuttle 'tragic, dangerous and unnecessary' and claiming the move had 'every Jihadist group round the world cheering'.  Mr Blair, who was in Downing Street when London sent UK troops to the Middle Eastern country 20 years ago following the 9/11 attacks on New York and Washington DC, said Britain has a 'moral obligation' to stay until 'all those who need to be are evacuated'.  In a 2,700 article on the threat of 'radical Islam', the former British prime minister said the exit was not in the West or Afghanistan's interest as he lamented the likely reversal of gains made during the occupation, with the Taliban reasserting itself across most of the country in recent days.

Joe Biden Has Been a Monumental Disaster.  As commander in chief, Joe Biden carries ultimate responsibility for a decision that will haunt America for a generation or more.  His legacy will be one of failure, exceedingly poor judgment and staggering incompetence.  His advisers, including Secretary of State Antony Blinken and National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan, must also shoulder some of the blame.  Upon entering office, Biden's team promised to "restore America's credibility" following the supposed unpredictability of the Trump years.  Instead they now look like a bunch of amateurs, outplayed by the Taliban, a movement frequently depicted as living in the Dark Ages.  The handling of Afghanistan has been so bad that even Biden's cheerleaders in the Left-wing U.S. media, from CNN to The Washington Post, have loudly denounced him.  Unfortunately, the Afghanistan debacle is not an aberration for the Biden presidency.  It exemplifies the Biden approach.  On practically every foreign policy front, the Democratic presidency is driving U.S. decline.

The Chinese certainly have benefitted from Biden's presidency.  I wonder why.
British Parliament Unloads On Biden: 'Biden May Have Condemned The World To Chinese Domination In Future'.  Numerous members of the British Parliament slammed President Joe Biden this week in response to the catastrophe the president created in Afghanistan with his disastrous pullout and handling of the situation.  The remarks came on Wednesday [8/18/2021] from members in the House of Lords, which is one of the two chambers in the British Parliament.  Members blamed Biden for the situation and shamed him for trying to cast blame on others, including the Afghan military.  Many of the members said that America's image was seriously damaged around the world and the West could suffer greatly in the years to come because nations may no longer trust the West to keep its promises.

Rep. Claudia Tenney:  Biden Must Resign After Afghanistan Failure.  Rep. Claudia Tenney (R-NY) told Breitbart News Saturday [8/21/2021] that President Joe Biden must resign following his major foreign policy failure in Afghanistan as thousands of Americans remain stranded, blasting his "arrogant callousness" and false assertions that Americans are able to access the airport in Kabul as the condition in the area, under Taliban rule, worsens.  "Either he's lying to us or he doesn't know what's happening on the ground or he's not listening to the generals or our intel community.  There seems to be a miscommunication.  All this was already transpiring early on," Tenney said, referring to Biden's "festering mess" in Afghanistan and blasting the president for initially taking a vacation as the Taliban took over Kabul.

If Biden were a Republican, Dems in Congress would have impeached him.  They should.  The American-nurtured Afghan military of the last 20 years that had suffered thousands of prior casualties evaporated in a few hours in the encirclement of Kabul.  Enlistees apparently calculated that their own meager chances with the premodern Taliban were still better than fighting as a dependency of the postmodern United States — despite its powerful diversity training programs.  Forces more powerful than the Taliban, in places far more strategic, will now leverage an ideologically driven but predictably incompetent administration, a woke Pentagon and politically weaponized intelligence communities.

Video Re-Surface Where Obama Is Laughing About Joe's Mental Decline.  20 years ago Joe Biden was a wise-cracking Democrat politician on top of his game.  Whether you liked him or not, nobody could deny he had a way with words and knew how to work a crowd.  Fast forward to now, however, and the picture is not so rosy when it comes to the former vice president's cognitive health.  The latest developments have left many Americans demanding Joe Biden to take a mental health evaluation!  Joe Biden's cognitive decline is no laughing matter.  The real problem [i]s that the Democrats knew about his mental decline almost a decade ago and still, they let him run for President!

The Steep Cost of Mishandling Our Withdrawal From Afghanistan.  In March 1975, an American president was fighting to save an American ally from being overrun by an implacable enemy.  The North Vietnamese Army, mounting a massive conventional strike on the Army of the Republic of Vietnam, was plunging closer to Saigon.  Gerald Ford urged the Democratic congressional majority to authorize military aid to South Vietnam.  His pleas were met with intransigence and disdain.  An ally collapsed, countless refugees were forced into the sea, murder reigned throughout South Vietnam, and "reeducation" camps became a way of life.  One of those standing in the way of Ford's attempt to save our friends was a new senator from Delaware named Joseph Robinette Biden.  Sound familiar?  Now we have fresh confirmation of former Defense Secretary Robert Gates' warning that Biden has been on the wrong side of every major national security issue for over 40 years (he even opposed the operation to kill Osama bin Laden).  The benefit, though, of having Biden in the Senate and the vice presidency was that he never had his hands on the levers of kinetic power — until now.

Biden's Afghanistan presser did not match reality and then he ran out.  During today's [8/20/2021] Afghanistan presser, Joe Biden had a lot of trouble talking and often sounded like a drunk because of his mental problem.  Biden bragged about flying home 169 Americans yesterday.  That is out of 15,000 Americans, although he doesn't actually know how many are there.  He lied and said he is working in close cooperation with our allies.  He kept saying they are all working together.  It took him 36 hours to talk with Boris Johnson.  He is going to have a united front with our allies moving forward, he said.  The G7 will meet next week.  Biden is still relying on the Taliban to get safe passage for Americans.

Everything Is Not All Right.  In case you haven't noticed, the Biden Administration is a dumpster fire of seeming incompetence and dementia.  I don't believe that is by accident, and I believe those calling the shots wish to do harm to the United States.  A brief review of the Biden family's financial dealings in China begs the question of a compromised or even installed presidency.  Even the staunchest of corporate media allies have at times brought themselves to question the mental health status of Joe Biden, which has led to the assertion that the lights are on but nobody's home.  And given the projection on display during the Trump Administration, any recognition of the current state is met with a dose of leftist "whataboutism."  Accusations of poor mental health or incompetence are chalked up to retaliation in the current political climate.  Surely there is a puppet master pulling these strings?  Joe Biden didn't bother to campaign for office and yet raked in more votes than any candidate in history by a wide margin, after all.

Most voters deem Biden unfit to be president, poll shows.  Fewer than 40 percent of likely voters believe Joe Biden is carrying out the duties of the presidency, according to a poll released Friday as the US evacuation of Afghanistan continues to spiral out of control.  The survey from Rasmussen Reports found that just 39 percent of respondents thought that Biden was "doing the job of president," while 51 percent answered that "others are making decisions" for the 78-year-old, and 10 percent said they were not sure.  That represents a drastic drop from a similar poll conducted in March, when the response to that question was evenly divided 47-47.  In addition, 52 percent of respondents said they were "not confident" that Biden was physically and mentally up to the job of being commander-in-chief, compared to 46 percent who said they were.

Doctors say they would be concerned about 'anyone' with Joe Biden's symptoms at age 78 after two brain aneurysms and a heart condition.  Questions have been raised about US President Joe Biden's cognitive wellbeing after a car crash interview over his handling of the unfolding Afghanistan crisis.  America's oldest president provided jumbled responses to questions and mixed up details about his son in an interview with ABC.  The stumbles did not make the broadcasted version but were revealed when a full transcript of the interview was published overnight. [...] Mr Biden has previously suffered two brain aneurysms and a heart condition which makes the muscle beat too fast, causing dizziness and confusion.  A top cardiologist told MailOnline today [8/20/2021] that both conditions are linked to memory difficulties and confusion, as well as dementia.

Biden Admin Has No Plan to Keep Cash Out of Taliban's Hands, GOP Lawmakers Say.  As the Biden administration scrambles to evacuate American personnel from Afghanistan, it is overlooking the Taliban's plans to seize some $10 billion in assets held by Afghanistan's central bank, according to congressional foreign policy leaders.  Somewhere between $18 and $20 million in cash sits in the Afghan central bank's vaults and is likely to fall into the Taliban's hands unless the United States attempts to intercept the funds and fly them out of the country — a scenario that sources say is unlikely as the Biden administration struggles to pull Americans out of Taliban-controlled Kabul.  The Treasury Department would not answer questions about any plan it has to secure cash still located inside the country.  A Biden administration official, speaking only on background about the matter, told the Washington Free Beacon that all Afghan assets held as investments in the United States — which amount to around $7 billion — have been frozen and "will not be made available to the Taliban."

Recap of the week's events:
Biden just had his worst week as president yet.  President Joe Biden just faced one of his toughest weeks as president yet, with pandemonium in Afghanistan, skyrocketing COVID-19 cases, and a declining approval rating.  Roughly a month after Biden forcefully defended his move to withdraw US troops from Afghanistan, expressing "trust" in the capacity of the Afghan military to keep the Taliban at bay, the militant Islamist group marched into Kabul on Sunday.  The Taliban had rapidly seized major cities over the course of the prior week, often without much of a fight.  The militants regained control of the country just days after the US military assessed that it would take up to 90 days for Kabul to fall.  The Biden administration was ultimately forced to acknowledge that it got it wrong and was caught completely off guard by the blistering pace of the Taliban's advance.  Harrowing scenes have followed the Taliban takeover — including Afghans falling from US military planes as they desperately sought to flee the country.

Pentagon Confirms Biden's Either Lying to the American People or Incompetent.  Just minutes after President Biden failed to offer any real explanation for why things have gone sideways in Afghanistan amid the U.S. withdrawal, Pentagon officials proved that much of what Biden told the American people was untrue.  That or Biden is entirely unaware of critical information regarding what's going on in the world.  Despite standing at the President's side while Biden declared "we know of no circumstance where American citizens, carrying an American passport" have had trouble getting to Hamid Karzai International Airport, Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin reportedly told members of the House of Representatives that Americans are in fact being beaten by the Taliban in Kabul.

Biden lies through his teeth, fails to fess up to Afghanistan shambles for third time.  President Joe Biden still won't apologize for the complete chaos he's triggered in Afghanistan as tens of thousands of American and allied lives remain at risk.  Despite his claims to the contrary, his pullout has been an utter disaster, and America's standing has suffered.  His televised speech Friday [8/20/2021] was once again an exercise in delusion, misdirection — and flat-out lying.  In his remarks, for instance, the president declared:  "I have seen no question of our credibility from our allies around the world."  He then looked back at his court jesters, a masked Secretary of State Antony Blinken and clueless Vice President Kamala Harris, as if he really believed what he was saying.  "Matter of fact, the exact opposite I've got."  Does he think Americans are really that gullible?

Biden to Afghans: 'See ya, Suckers!'  [Consider] the millions of myopic and stupid Americans who last November voted for Joe Biden to become our 46th President.  Some were just partisan Democrats or Teamsters or members of the teachers union: garden variety drones who would have elected me President if I'd been the Democratic Party nominee.  Others were motivated by Donald Trump's "mean Tweets" which made them "uncomfortable." [...] Instead, every one of them bears the guilt and shame of inflicting on our nation a man who is unquestionably the most incompetent and pathetic "leader" in our nation's history, and who this week has foisted on America and the world the most humiliating defeat imaginable by literally presiding long-distance over the collapse of Afghanistan.  This doddering joke — who, let's face it, everyone knows isn't really in charge — loves to stumble his way through teleprompter speeches which his faceless underlings write for him, referring to our fellow Americans who question his 2020 election as "terrorists."  Meantime, he hid in radio silence at Camp David as actual terrorists took over a country we'd been defending for 20 years.

British Diplomatic Memo Reveals Biden Assured G-7 Allies in June US Would Ensure Kabul's Stability.  A British diplomatic memo leaked to Bloomberg News reveals Joe Biden promised G-7 allies in June at the summit in Cornwall, England that "critical US enablers" would remain in place to keep Kabul stable.  British officials took Biden's word and assumed they would keep the embassy safely functioning.  They were wrong.

Joe Biden Puts on an Obscene Performance After Finally Showing for Postponed Afghanistan Presser.  Until today, Joe Biden had yet to hold a single press conference since the disastrous collapse of Afghanistan.  With thousands of Americans and Afghan allies still trapped throughout the war-torn country in chaos, Biden was finally set to give remarks and answer questions.  That came on the heels of an inexplicable decision some days ago to appear and only speak on COVID while not taking any questions.  Within minutes of the presser's original scheduled time, it was postponed.

ABC Blasts Biden's 'Breathtaking' Lies on Afghanistan Catastrophe.  Immediately following President Biden's contentious Friday press conference about the ongoing disaster he created in Afghanistan, ABC News special coverage slammed him for saying things about the crisis that were just blatantly false.  Correspondents described his lies as "breathtaking" and completely out of touch with the dire reality facing U.S. citizens and Afghan allies still trapped in the Taliban-controlled country.

Fact-Checking Biden's Address.  CLAIM:  "My national security team and I have been closely monitoring the situation on the ground in Afghanistan and moving quickly to execute the plans we had put in place to respond to every constituency, including — and contingency — including the rapid collapse we're seeing now."  REALITY:  Biden Scrapped Trump's Afghanistan Rescue Plan.  "Raheem Kassam revealed on Wednesday that under President Donald Trump, Mike Pompeo's State Department had ordered the creation of a 'Contingency and Crisis Response' office whose job would be avoiding 'a future Benghazi-style situation for Americans overseas.'  But while Biden lied to ABC's George Stephanopoulos on Wednesday that 'We planned for every contingency,' behind the scenes, Biden's State Department had already 'revoked the funding and the approval' for Trump's response team, according to Kassam."  I'd also add that had Biden planned for every contingency, things would look [...] a lot different in Kabul right now.

Biden keeps digging hole deeper on his disastrous evacuation of Afghanistan.  This was his third speech in the last five days on the unfolding crisis in Kabul, and the president should bring a shovel to the next one.  It would be an appropriate prop for a man who is determined to dig himself deeper into the hole every time he opens his mouth.  As it is, the props he used — Vice President Kamala Harris, Secretary of State Tony Blinken and Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin — were worse than useless.  The silly masks they wore made them look as if they were trying to hide their faces in embarrassment.  You couldn't blame them — except they all share in the responsibility for this epic failure.  Even before we know the final outcome, the terrifying chaos so many Americans face in Kabul and our government's dependence on the kindness of bloodthirsty terrorists mark this as a singularly humiliating experience for the world's greatest superpower.

Resign.  Afghanistan has a fighting season.  In late autumn, the Taliban go to the fields and oversee harvesting poppies for the opium drug trade.  In winter, they retreat through mountain passes into northern Pakistan.  The winters in Afghanistan are rough and frigid.  In the early spring, after the snow melts, the Taliban return to Afghanistan and plant poppies.  Then they fight.  This is a well-known and well-documented cycle.  When Trump announced a withdrawal, he insisted on withdrawing while the Taliban were in the fields planting poppies.  They would be preoccupied and unable to sweep down into the cities.  For 18 months, with only 2,500 troops, Trump's military held the nation of Afghanistan together with zero American casualties.  Biden, so insistent on having 9/11 as a symbol, overrode his military commanders and diplomats and insisted on a withdrawal in the middle of the fighting season. [...] The president should resign.  If Trump were president, the Democrats and press would demand no less.

Tired of Being Tired?  There's no high-fiving and hashtagging on social media about Joe Biden's victories.  He has none.  Even his voters know it.  What's to celebrate?  Who's winning in the last eight months after the election of the "most popular candidate to ever run for president?"  Big government is winning.  Teachers unions are winning.  The Taliban is winning.  Big tech is winning.  Establishment party politics is winning.  China is winning.  Fear of a virus is winning.  Inflation is winning.  Five people who want to compete in sports as a different gender are winning.  Illegal aliens are winning.  Joe and Jane Q. Taxpayer aren't winning.  They have fast become demoralized, defeated, dispirited, and depressed.

Afghanistan, Not An Intelligence Failure — Something Much Worse.  While it's certainly convenient to depict the shock and miscalculation U.S. officials claim over Afghanistan's tragic, rapid fall to the Taliban as an intelligence failure, the reality is far worse.  It's a convenient deflection of responsibility for decisions taken owing to political and ideological considerations and provides a scapegoat for a policy decision that's otherwise unable to offer a persuasive defense. [...] In his prepared remarks on Monday, President Biden stated, "But I always promised the American people that I will be straight with you.  The truth is:  This did unfold more quickly than we had anticipated."  That's misleading at best.  The CIA anticipated it as a possible scenario.

You've just crossed over.  On Wednesday [8/18/2021] Joe Biden's minders in the daycare operation at the White House sent him forth to stare vacantly into the teleprompter and deliver remarks in the East Room.  With our ongoing national humiliation proceeding in Afghanistan, Biden sought to turn our attention to — booster shots.  The press was summoned to serve as extras.  Biden took no questions. [...] This is what he said, according to the transcript:  "Quite frankly, it's a tragedy.  There are people who are dying and who will die who didn't have to."  In other words, it didn't need to be this way.  Unbelievably, animatronic Joe wasn't referring to his own performance as Commander-in-Chief.  He wasn't referring to Afghanistan.  Nary a word about the historic debacle in Afghanistan.  The people running the daycare operation at the White House must be out of their minds.  What are they thinking?  What are we to think?

Afghanistan is much worse than the fall of Saigon.  Biden needs to act like it.  The past week was filled with harrowing images out of Afghanistan.  Helicopters evacuating U.S. embassy staff in a visual callback to the fall of Saigon.  Taliban soldiers roaming the streets, executing innocents.  Afghans clinging to the outside of C-17s, some falling to their deaths after takeoff.  Like most Americans, I agreed with Presidents Trump and Biden's goal to finally leave Afghanistan after 20 years.  In my naivete, I expected a modicum of competence as we withdrew.  By Sunday, everyone realized the withdrawal was a tactical fiasco.  But instead of correcting the problems, our governmental officials thought it best to point fingers.  The intel community leaked that they had warned the White House this would happen but were ignored.  The Pentagon leaked their own warnings but insisted Biden overruled them, too.  For his part, the president blamed everyone he could think of.

Report: Biden "Not Sleeping Well," Says He Wants to Go Home to Delaware to Sleep.  According to a new report from conservative journalist Jack Posobeic, President Joe Biden is not sleeping well and wants to go home to Delaware after taking a separate vacation last weekend.  "Biden telling staff he wants to go back to Delaware.  Hasn't been sleeping well all this week.  Thinks he will be more functional if he stays over at home in Wilmington," Posobeic reported.  Just an hour after Posobiec dropped this tweet, WMAL News reported that Biden would in fact be going home to Wilmington, Delaware for a long weekend. [...] When America needs him most, Biden is going home to sleep in Delaware.

The Editor says...
I'm surprised he can sleep at all, since he can already see some of the ramifications of his instantly-regrettable decisions.  I'm also surprised that he can sleep, knowing that the 2020 election was stolen, and how it was stolen, and knowing he was installed as president illegitimately, ending up as the hapless puppet of some person or persons yet unknown (to those of us outside Washington).  He probably can't sleep because he knows his power-hungry Vice President is circling like a vulture, a little too eager to take over.  I also suspect he can't sleep because he's probably pumped full of drugs that are supposed to turn back the hands of time and mitigate his senility.  It's also amazing that he can sleep, knowing exactly what is, or might be, on Hunter Biden's abandoned, lost, or stolen laptop computers, since Hunter Biden seems to foolishly document everything he does.  Including things the rest of us haven't heard about yet.  It's also not surprising that he can't sleep because he probably understands where he'll be in another 20 years or less — probably much less, as feeble as he is already — and it's not a good place.

What's Wrong With Joe?  Biden Calls a Lid on Public Appearances — Indefinitely.  Biden has taken public appearances off his schedule without explanation.  Reports indicate he has left Washington for his home state of Delaware, or soon will.  Kamala Harris has announced a trip to Singapore and Vietnam after being silent throughout the Afghanistan crisis.  Afghanistan remains a chaotic and extremely dangerous tinderbox with thousands of Americans stranded and surrounded by the Taliban while they await evacuation.  But Joe Biden has walked away again and called a lid.

Is Biden okay?  Why wouldn't the president want to be at the White House at a moment like this, signaling that he's in command and his administration is on the case?  Hiding out in Delaware makes it seem like he's on vacation while U.S. troops struggle to maintain order at the Kabul airport with the Taliban outside the gate.  Given the total disorder in American planning in Afghanistan over the past month, having Biden squirreled away in another state feeds the impression that no one's in charge.  Or, worse, that he doesn't really care.

Can the Biden presidency last much longer?  Though removal from office once was unthinkable, Joe Biden has lost the support of most of the key actors whose support helped him win the presidency, and whose cooperation is essential to maintaining the illusion that he is capable of fulfilling the duties of president of the United States.  Because impeachment or the 25th Amendment removal from office would hinge on their support — Democrat officeholders now understand that they are at risk of losing their next election thanks to his sullying of the brand of the party that foisted an already senile placeholder on the public.

Appalling: Biden Scrapped Trump Afghanistan Rescue Plan.  Raheem Kassam revealed on Wednesday [8/18/2021] that under President Donald Trump, Mike Pompeo's State Department had ordered the creation of a "Contingency and Crisis Response" office whose job would be avoiding "a future Benghazi-style situation for Americans overseas."  But while Biden lied to ABC's George Stephanopoulos on Wednesday that "We planned for every contingency," behind the scenes, Biden's State Department had already "revoked the funding and the approval" for Trump's response team, according to Kassam.  Biden didn't plan for every contingency.  He killed our ability to respond to the most likely contingency.

Ex-Trump aide lays out Afghan withdrawal plan that Biden scrapped.  he Biden administration ignored or jettisoned carefully designed plans to withdraw from Afghanistan, with the result being chaos and bedlam, a former national security official to President Donald Trump said.  "I don't even know that anyone could have made this awful scenario up," former National Security Council Senior Director Kash Patel told Just the News.  "It's literally worse than you could possibly conjure."  Patel, who handled the Pentagon transition to Biden's team as chief of staff to Acting Defense Secretary Christopher Miller, made his remarks while appearing Thursday on the John Solomon Reports podcast.

Why Joe Biden can't resign, or be removed — or die.  In the wake of the Afghanistan debacle, demands have arisen in Congress for President Biden to resign or to be removed via the 25th Amendment.  Elements of the formerly pro-Biden media have joined in the condemnation.  Many silent Democrat office-holders likely want Biden out, as they fear that the systemic incompetence of his administration will bring them down come 2022.  But Joe cannot resign or be fired.  The Democrat high command will not let either happen, no matter the short-term political cost.  On the surface, that makes little sense.  Joe's resignation or removal would not alter Democrat control of the presidency and Congress.  If Joe leaves, Kamala Harris becomes president.  She is incompetent, too, but no more so than Joe, and is on board with the administration's radical agenda.

Joe Biden Plans Exit for Vacation in Delaware After Speech on Afghanistan Disaster.  President Joe Biden will return to Delaware on Friday to resume his vacation, but first, he will deliver a speech about the disaster unfolding in Afghanistan.  The president is scheduled to deliver remarks at 1:00 p.m., specifically about the process of evacuating American citizens, SIV applicants, and "vulnerable Afghans," the White House announced. [...] After his speech, the president will depart the White House for his home in Delaware.  The president has stubbornly tried to maintain a vacation schedule, either in Delaware or Camp David, despite the ongoing crisis in Afghanistan as the Taliban rapidly seized control of the country before Biden's August 31st deadline.

Jen Psaki Accidentally Confirms Biden Lied About Military Commanders' Advice He Leave 2,500 Troops in Afghanistan.  President Joe Biden denied in a recent interview that his top military commanders advised him to leave a contingency force of 2,500 troops in Afghanistan to secure equipment and oversee the evacuation.  However, on Thursday [8/19/2021], White House Press Secretary was asked directly about multiple reports attesting to the advice given to Biden and indirectly confirmed that is exactly what happened.  [Video clip]

Biden's Surrender Presidency.  The seven months of the Biden presidency reveal a theme of surrender.  Surrender is to give up possession of something to another, or to give up to some influence or idea.  President Biden has surrendered so much on so many levels.  The only question is how much is due to his abject incompetence versus a deliberate attempt to surrender America, the country he swore an oath to preserve, protect, and defend, to dark forces in the world.  Start with the latest surrender, far from America in the war-torn country of Afghanistan.  Despite promises to the contrary, Biden and his foreign policy clown posse gave us a rerun of Saigon in 1975.  After hiding under his bed for a week, the President explained his brilliant strategy by blaming his predecessor President Trump, and the Afghan military.  Surprisingly his speech writers failed to mention climate change, as another cause for the fall of Afghanistan.

How Will Biden Handle His Next 3 Afghan Crises?  Biden was lying when he said the collapse of Afghanistan was inevitable.  Even if he was right, a fighting withdrawal could not have been any less catastrophic.  Why didn't Biden plan better to get out people and equipment?  Biden had convinced himself, despite military and intelligence advice to the contrary, that defeat was inevitable.  He assumed the Taliban would let him make a lightening withdrawal and U.S. forces and civilians would be gone before the country collapsed.  That strategy left no time for a methodical withdrawal.  Biden miscalculated.  The Taliban had every reason to seek to humiliate the U.S. rather than allow a graceful retreat.

Why does Biden always get it wrong?  Joe Biden's record on major foreign policy defies the law of averages.  It seems almost impossible to have been wrong time after time on the big questions. [...] A friend who used to lobby Biden in the Senate tells me that Biden has a very short attention span and little tolerance for hearing details or analysis.  And this was at a time when Biden was young.  When my friend tried to explain his positions to Biden, the Senator's eyes would glaze over quickly and he would become dismissive.  It's one thing to reject the views of experts.  After all, they are often wrong.  But to reject their views without really listening to them is a recipe for error.  So is overconfidence in one's judgment coupled with a short attention span.  Wehner thinks he has found a common thread in Biden's errors — a willingness to betray.

If he refuses to answer questions, it's not a press conference.
Biden Bolts Out Of Press Conference After Attacking GOP Governors, Refuses Questions.  Democrat President Joe Biden bolted out of a press conference on Wednesday after repeatedly taking shots at Republican-led states over their handling of the coronavirus pandemic.  Biden's press conference came as thousands of Americans remain trapped in Afghanistan and horrifying images have emerged from the nation showing violence and chaos erupting in the wake of his disastrous pullout from Afghanistan.  He did not take a single question from reporters.  [Tweet]

White House Walks Back Biden's Statement About Defending Taiwan, Says He Misspoke.  A senior Biden administration official said Thursday [8/19/2021] that American policy on Taiwan has not changed despite Joe Biden appearing to suggest the United States would defend the island if it were attacked.  In an ABC Interview, Biden grouped Taiwan in with countries that the U.S. is committed to defending.  "They are... entities we've made agreements with based on not a civil war they're having on that island or in South Korea, but on an agreement where they have a unity government that, in fact, is trying to keep bad guys from doing bad things to them," Biden said.  "We made a sacred commitment to Article 5 that if in fact anyone were to invade or take action against our NATO allies, we would respond.  Same with Japan, same with South Korea, same with — Taiwan.  It's not even comparable to talk about that."  In case you are unfamiliar, Article 5 is an agreement which states that an attack on one NATO member is an attack on all.  As reported by Reuters, a senior Biden official said the policy has not changed, however, and Biden simply misspoke.

Who Is Running The US Government Right Now?  Because It Sure Isn't Joe Biden.  It is clear that Americans need a leader now more than ever, but who is stepping up to the plate to fight this crisis head-on?  It certainly isn't President Joe Biden and his team at the White House, who have all been hiding behind each other and using vacation time to cower from the press.  Against expert and intelligence predictions, the Taliban swiftly dismantled the United State's decades-long pet project in Afghanistan in just one weekend.  This left thousands of Americans and U.S. allies stranded and at the mercy of terrorists who hate women and any religion but their own.  It's a situation that warrants all hands on deck, but the people who are supposed to be in charge of the country and barking orders to get Americans to safety seem to be snoozing, taking long weekends, and washing their hands clean of any responsibility. [...] Biden also finally took the time to sit down with ABC News's George Stephanopoulos and give one of his only presidential interviews since taking office. [...] It shouldn't be too much to ask the leader of our country and a global figure to do his job, but all we get is a confused, tired old man who obviously can't handle the pressure that comes with his position and offers gibberish and false statements as reassurance.

The Editor says...
One thing is certain:  Well-deserved mockery and derision of Mr. Biden will continue for the rest of his term as president.  Even the low-information voters are sure to hear quite a bit of it.  Ridicule is a language they understand.  Just ask Saul Alinsky.

Not a Joke:  Biden Admin's Response to Taliban Violence Is a 'Strongly Worded' Letter.  The Biden administration is dealing with its deeply serious disasters in a deeply unserious way.  Biden's ambassador to the United Nations, Linda Thomas-Greenfield, appeared on CNN with Wolf Blitzer Tuesday and said that the United States and its remaining allies worked really, truly, very hard on a response to the Taliban as it tightened its grip on Afghanistan.  That response — this is not a joke — came in the form of a strongly worded letter.

FBI Knew Of Hunter Biden's Missing Laptop As Early As December 2019.  The FBI knew as early as December 2019 that Hunter Biden believed Russians had stolen his laptop, which he believed made him vulnerable to blackmail because of compromising evidence on the laptop combined with his father's presidential ambitions.  This explosive revelation establishes that either Joe Biden lied to the American public, or the intelligence community lied to him.  When The New York Post went public in October 2020 with videos, text messages, and emails from an abandoned MacBook laptop belonging to Hunter Biden, Joe Biden told Americans the laptop was a Russian hoax.  But now Brian Della Rocca, an attorney representing John Paul Mac Isaac, has told me that the video of Hunter Biden telling a prostitute he thought Russians had stolen a second laptop, leaving him susceptible to blackmail, was "definitely on the hard drive" of the Biden MacBook abandoned at Isaac's shop and later seized by the FBI.

Fire them all.  The longest war in U.S. history ended on Sunday [8/15/2021] with a stunning defeat and global humiliation.  If America is going to bother with the expense of having a large standing army, navy, air force, and the rest, then it must make the entire chain of command in Washington make the Walk of Shame from office.  It rolls downhill, so start at the top with the derelict president.  He is cunning, crafty, and corrupt.  Biden insisted in June nothing could go wrong. [...] We gave billions of dollars worth of equipment.  Now that equipment belongs to the Taliban because they paid off the warlords.  PJ Media reported, "Hollie McKay, a foreign policy expert and war crimes investigator who covered war, terrorism, and crimes against humanity for Fox News Digital for more than a decade, is reporting today from Afghanistan that the Taliban is paying off military commanders to abandon their posts and surrender their cities.

Irritated Biden gives first interview after Kabul fiasco:  This withdrawal couldn't have been handled any better.  I was not expecting the talking point from the White House after the week we've just endured to be, essentially, "This was the best-case scenario."  The highlight below, I think, is Stephanopoulos asking him about desperate Afghans falling to their deaths after clinging to the outside of U.S. military planes taking off from Kabul and Biden answering, with visible annoyance, "That was four days ago, five days ago!"  It was two days ago, Joe.  But, okay, it's out of the current news cycle.  Which makes it unimportant, I guess?  Isn't empathy supposed to be the thing he's good at?  I can't believe I'm going to say this but the White House might be better off letting Kamala Harris handle the messaging duties from now on.

Obama Presidential Center: 'In Honor of the President and Vice President Responsible for The Deaths Of All Those Left To Die in Afghanistan'.  The overbearing hands of former U.S. President Barack Hussein Obama are all over the heartbreaking human crisis in Afghanistan.  It is Obama's former Vice President who will go down in history as the president who botched the pull out of American troops from Afghanistan, leaving thousands of Americans and Afghan citizens to the epic brutality of the murderous Taliban, before cutting and running to Camp David — as if it none of it were even happening.

Trump Jr. to Newsmax:  Taliban Waited Until [a] Weak Figure Was in the White House.  The Taliban waited until there was a weak figure in the White House to make its move and President Joe Biden acted now to pull U.S. troops from Afghanistan because he wanted credit for ending the 20-year war, Donald Trump Jr. said. [...] ''So he changed Trump's plan.  He tried to do it himself.  He waited until the peak of the fighting season.  He put no conditions on ... we had very clear conditions.  So they came down these roads, we would have been droning them, we would have been taking them out.  "The other difference is, most importantly, everyone looks at Joe Biden and all they see is an old man on his last legs, a man that can't walk up a flight of stairs, an empty suit who can't complete a sentence," Donald Trump Jr. told [Chris] Salcedo.  "There's a difference.  When they look at Trump, they understand that he has resolve, that he means business, that he is not to be trifled with.  So they didn't."  By pulling U.S. troops out of Afghanistan, the Biden administration created the largest hostage situation in the world, Trump Jr. said.

Joe Biden's State Dept Halted a Trump-Era 'Crisis Response' Plan Just Months Before Taliban Takeover.  Joe Biden's State Department moved to cancel a critical State Department program aimed at providing swift and safe evacuations of Americans out of crisis zones just months prior to the fall of Kabul, The National Pulse can exclusively reveal.  The "Contingency and Crisis Response Bureau" — which was designed to handle medical, diplomatic, and logistical support concerning Americans overseas was paused by Antony Blinken's State Department earlier this year.  Notification was officially signed just months before the Taliban's takeover of Afghanistan.

Biden Thunders Past Jimmy Carter as The Worst President Ever.  Sure, William Harrison died just 32 days after the inauguration.  He was too stupid to wear a coat.  But mishandling of the Shah in particular, and the middle east, in general, pushed Jimmy Carter into the "worst president" spot.  Now, Joe Biden is thundering past Jimmy Carter like a runaway train headed over the cliff.  In just seven months, America is experiencing the worst inflation, ever.  Biden didn't just "heat up" the economy, he put a hot iron into everyone's wallet.  Biden converted the southern border from a border, into an express lane of illegal immigrants many of whom have been released into the interior, with COVID, never to be seen again.  His handling of the exit from Afghanistan makes Napoleon's winter retreat from Moscow look like Grant's victory at Vicksburg.  Biden told America that what just happened in Afghanistan, would never happen.  Then, it happened.  Biden also told America, that American's left outside the wire, must find their own way out — and in the same breathe claimed he had a "contingency" for everything.

Something Is Very Wrong Here With Latest News About Biden.  Now, there's been a lot wrong, right down the line, when it comes to how Joe Biden has dealt with the debacle in Afghanistan.  But one of the main problems with his administration is the failure to actually speak frankly and with transparency with the American people.  They started this off very badly with both Biden and White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki being on vacation.  Biden didn't even come back until Monday to make his speech.  Then he went back to Camp David, and then came back to make a speech today.  But that speech, as we previously reported, isn't on Afghanistan, it's on the Wuhan coronavirus.  That's stunning.  Not exactly the thing that is most pressing with thousands of Americans and allies in danger in Afghanistan.

New Evidence of Something Really Wrong with Biden's Camp David Photos — Not Just the Clocks.  The White House on Sunday morning [8/15/2021] posted a photo of Joe Biden at Camp David, where he was vacationing when the news hit that Afghanistan was falling into the hands of the Taliban. [...] Maybe there's a perfectly good explanation for why the Camp David clocks are set to the way they would be in February.  Just like there's a reason why Biden got a bald spot, grew hair back, and then balded again — all in one weekend.  There's a better explanation:  President Biden was indisposed this weekend as Afghanistan fell to the Taliban and a White House staffer posted the unreleased Camp David photos that were on hand from February.  Of course, this must seem to be an 'impossibility' for a mainstream news media that often fails to be nearly as critical of the Biden administration as they were about the last.  But given the evidence at hand, it is the best available explanation at this point in time.

Joe Biden's Next Move Is One of Pure Delusion and Desperation.  As far as I can tell, Joe Biden finally arrived back at the White House yesterday evening after hiding out for the better part of the last two weeks.  While I can only find a text pool report claiming he did and not an actual confirmation (i.e. photos of him getting off Marine One), it does appear his activities today are scheduled to be in the Oval Office and East Room.  What those activities are, though, will likely leave you gobsmacked.  Is he going to do an emergency briefing and presser on the current disaster unfolding in Afghanistan?  Nah, he's going to talk about COVID instead.  Yes, while possibly over 10,000 Americans remain trapped on the ground in a hostile, foreign nation, the president is going to shoot the bull on the coronavirus again.

Joe Biden is imploding before our eyes.  Having created one crisis after another — e.g., a broken economy, a broken border, a broken energy supply and, now, a broken Afghanistan — you'd think that Biden would at least step up and lead us into some brave new Progressive future.  That, though, is not how Biden rolls.  Instead, he's either played the blame game, hidden at Camp David or in Delaware, attacked Republican governors, dismissed as bagatelles the horrors in Afghanistan, and generally been weirdly disconnected.  I've already commented on Biden's dreadful statement on Monday [8/16/2021], during which he created a straw man by contending that the main issue was whether withdrawing from Afghanistan was the right thing to do.  Of course, because few disagree with the decision to withdraw, the real issue was and is the utterly appalling mess the administration, whether in the White House, the Pentagon, or the State Department, made of the withdrawal.  However, Biden having presented his straw man knew where the fault lay:  With Trump.  It was Trump's fault that Biden, who has systematically reversed everything Trump did, was forced to fall in with Trump's planned withdrawal from Afghanistan.

Follow the money:  Did Biden admin know collapse was imminent?  Congressional committees will soon start delving into the most catastrophic American foreign-policy action since Saigon.  Perhaps they should take one lesson from Watergate — follow the money.  To set this up, let's start with a Washington Post report from late yesterday on the Biden administration's belated attempt to keep the Taliban from accessing Afghanistan's assets in the international banking system: [...] The US might have to use those assets to ransom Americans trapped in Kabul, too.  You can bet that the Taliban will seize some just to underscore that point, once they get around to checking their bank accounts.  However, don't be fooled by the seemingly reactive step described in the Post.  Stars & Stripes reported on the Taliban's violent suppression of protest in Jalalabad earlier, but they also included a curious development on the monetary front.  The US didn't add to those accounts as scheduled, and the head of Afghanistan's central bank has some suspicion as to why: [...]

Biden administration freezes billions of dollars in Afghan reserves, depriving Taliban of cash.  The Biden administration on Sunday froze Afghan government reserves held in U.S. bank accounts, blocking the Taliban from accessing billions of dollars held in U.S. institutions, according to two people familiar with the matter.  The decision was made by Treasury Secretary Janet L. Yellen and officials in the Treasury Department's Office of Foreign Assets Control, the people said.  The State Department was also involved in discussions over the weekend, with officials in the White House monitoring the developments.  An administration official said in a statement, "Any Central Bank assets the Afghan government have in the United States will not be made available to the Taliban."  The officials spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss government policy not yet made public.  Cutting off access to U.S.-based reserves represents among the first in what are expected to be several crucial decisions facing the Biden administration about the economic fate of that nation following the Taliban takeover.

Taliban violently disperse rare protest; one killed, six wounded.  [Scroll down]  In a sign of the monetary difficulties any future Afghan government will face, the head of Afghanistan's Central Bank said the country's supply of physical U.S. dollars is "close to zero."  Afghanistan has some $9 billion in reserves, Ajmal Ahmady tweeted, but most is held outside the country, with some $7 billion held in U.S. Federal Reserve bonds, assets and gold.  Ahmady said the country did not receive a planned cash shipment amid the Taliban offensive.  "The next shipment never arrived," he wrote.  "Seems like our partners had good intelligence as to what was going to happen."

The Mess is on Your Watch, Joey Boy.  Hey, Joey, it doesn't matter whose fault it is.  If things go wrong on your watch, then you are the guy that gets the blame.  In other words, when illegal immigrants storm the border on Joey's watch, it's Joey's fault.  When inflation bursts out on Joey's watch, it's Joey's fault.  When Saigon 2.0 happens in Afghanistan on Joey's watch, it's Joey's fault.  That's how the world works.  When something goes wrong on your watch, it's your fault. [...] Are you really sure that you guys were that smart when you absolutely did not steal the election last November?  Imagine the fun you would be having right now with the border, with inflation, with Afghanistan if Trump were president!

Anybody notice how cold and heartless Biden was in his Afghanistan speech?  Joe Biden and his media acolytes call him Mr. Empathy and Mr. Compassion.  His Afghanistan speech yesterday told a different story, and should end that phony spin forever.  My takeaway was how cold, and hard, and compassionless Biden was as he sought to extricate himself from the catastrophe of his own making.  He blamed everyone but himself for his failure, starting with the Afghan army.  He smarmily assured terrified Afghanis left behind he'd now speak out for their human rights instead of actually protect them.  He effectively told U.S. servicemembers their service was for nothing.  It was appalling.  Biden came off as a man without a soul.

The embarrassment that is Joe Biden.  Although the White House had intended to keep Biden under wraps for as long as possible, the demand that he say something — anything — about the unfolding debacle in Afghanistan forced him to leave Camp David for a 20-minute statement, after which he refused to take any questions.  The important part of what he said boils down to one sentence:  We had to leave and everything that went wrong was Trump's or the Afghans' fault.  Biden is a craven coward, a feckless fool, a dismal dummy, and a man who will soon have more blood on his hands than a thousand Lady Macbeths. [...] What people wanted to hear was what Biden had to say about the abrupt American pullout from Afghanistan, one seemingly made without any forethought about the needs of the American civilians there or the Afghan troops who, although they fought bravely, needed to feel Americans were at their back.  Instead, we just left.  And that's where Biden showed what a disgusting little weasel he is.

Fools, meet the evil you elected.  We tried before the election, to get you to see Biden for what he is.  Evil, arrogant, self-centered, and bereft of any qualities of statesmanship or even good judgment.  You didn't listen.  You believed the media stories; that the laptop was fake; that he was in his bunker, rather than campaigning, because of the evil virus; and that he wanted to heal the country and knew how to do it.  Guess you've graphically gotten your comeuppance now.  Argue all you want that Trump wanted out of Afghanistan.  That is true, but would he have left like this?  Nope!  He would have left from a position of strength that he could amply back up with action at the first hint of trouble.  He would have gotten our equipment, our manpower, and our allies and interpreters to safety if there was a need to.

Biden's Cognitive Decline Is Dangerous.  Biden's cognitive decline isn't merely a manifestation of his well-documented gift for gaffes.  It was noticeable during the 2020 presidential election, but his basement strategy enabled him to escape the kind of scrutiny most presidential candidates receive.  Since his inauguration, however, it has become all too clear that he has become increasingly impaired.  Consequently, 14 GOP members of Congress sent him a joint letter requesting that he take the Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MOCA).  This is the very same test that former President Trump took in 2018 — and easily passed — after the Democrats and the media accused him of senility.  The letter from the congressmen explains why Biden must acquiesce:  ["]The American people deserve to have absolute confidence in their President.  They deserve to know that he or she can perform the duties demanded of the office.  They deserve to have full transparency on the mental state of their highest elected leader.  To achieve this, we urge you to submit to a cognitive test immediately.  We implore you to then publish the test results, so the American people know the full mental and intellectual health of their President.["]  President Biden has not agreed to take the MOCA test, of course.

The real fraud of 2020.  We saw a lot of disappointment from the media about what just happened in Afghanistan, as reported by Joe Cunningham:  ["]If for one brief moment, it appears that the love affair between the Biden Administration and most of our legacy media is on the rocks. [... "]  Where were these reporters during the campaign?  What about the optics of a candidate who stayed in the basement and did not do press conferences?  I guess that those optics were O.K. because the objective was to defeat Trump.  Yes, there was fraud in 2020.  It was the media protecting a candidate from rigorous questions or questions period.  They all knew that Biden could not put in a full day on the job but that was overlooked to get Trump. [...] Yes, we are stuck with a diminished president and everyone in the media knew it in 2020.  That's the real fraud of 2020.

Joe Biden's Disappearing Act Is Not New.  It's How He Became President.  It was a running gag throughout his candidacy for president.  At 9 or 10 a.m. the Biden campaign would call a "lid" on the Democratic nominee.  The once inside baseball term indicating there would be no appearances from the candidate that day came into the public parlance.  Another day in the basement, we all laughed.  Well, that joke isn't funny anymore.  Last week as the Taliban stormed across the Afghanistan abandoned by Biden, he once again went into hiding.  Somewhere amongst the looming trees and homey wood paneling of Camp David, he sat, most likely mulling over how his experts could have misled him so badly.  The Americans he serves saw but a single image of their president, alone in a briefing room, staring at a Zoom call with those experts.  Finally Monday, amid growing pressure he emerged, to throw his predecessors, including Barack Obama, under the bus and pretend everything was going according to his plans.  Except, he has no plans.  He is barely even a president.

The Editor says...
Yeah, he is barely even a president — unless the election was overwhelmingly fraudulent, in which case he isn't the president at all.

The very center of all US problems is the rejection of Christianity.  Christianity has always been hand in hand with the greatest empires.  The abandonment of Christianity has always led to the collapse of any nation or people or family or person who abandons it.  This is an axiom. [...] Christianity itself is the most difficult way of life to live.  Any other religion is far, far easier, because they don't require of the faithful what Christ does:  everything.  Many people use "Christianity" as a brand to justify their own existence and behavior.  Look at Imposter Joe, for example.  He claims to be a "devout Roman Catholic", yet he supports gay marriage, abortion anytime anywhere, and acts like a pedophile at times.  He is false.  He probably doesn't think he is false, and many who prefer him because of political (not religious) reasons will participate in perpetuating the delusion.  But "by [his] fruits", we see he is no follower of Christ, he is instead, a hijacker of Christ, using the Lord's good name to get ahead politically among seculars.

Fleeing Afghanistan.  [Scroll down]  Biden announced a date-certain withdrawal without any conditions, the same error Obama made when he skedaddled from Iraq in 2011.  Worse, Biden abandoned our military bases and withdrew the in-country air support that gave the government in Kabul a fighting chance against the Taliban.  Pocketing these gifts, the Taliban started their march through the country two weeks later, and since then have been rolling up region after region and city after city.  According to the Pentagon, they could be in Kabul in a month. (In fact, on Sunday Taliban fighters were seen in Kabul, Afghan president Ashraf Ghani fled the country, and the Afghan National Reconciliation Council was left to negotiate the transfer of power to the Taliban.)  Biden's response is to send back 3000 troops to evacuate the embassy and Afghan employees, and protect the retreat from Kabul.

Biden blames Afghans for his desertion of them.  Images and facts on the ground speak louder than words, and certainly louder than the utterances of someone like Joe Biden.  If Biden thinks he can talk his way out of responsibility for this debacle, he's likely to be disappointed.

Chinese state media:  Once war breaks out with Taiwan, the US will abandon it.  One of my first reactions to the fall of Kabul over the weekend was concern about what this would communicate to our other allies and enemies.  It's hard to look at our abandonment of allies in Afghanistan and not conclude this is bad news for a place like Taiwan which is dependent on the US for its continued freedom.  As you're probably aware, China's Xi Jinping has recently vowed to reunify Taiwan by any means necessary.  "Solving the Taiwan question and realising the complete reunification of the motherland are the unswerving historical tasks of the Chinese Communist Party and the common aspiration of all Chinese people," Xi said.

Tucker Carlson Proclaims We Are Led by 'Buffoons' in Blistering Takedown of Our Political Establishment.  [Video clip]  Carlson opens his critique with a clip of the now-iconic scene at Kabul airport, where a C-17 plows through a crowded runway as people cling to it for their lives (some falling to their deaths).  Putting aside the failures of the last 20 years, the final moments of the war in Afghanistan ended with our stalwart experts in political and military leadership not even being able to clear a single runway to conduct an orderly retreat.  And that Carlson's main point — we are led by buffoons.  John Kirby and Mark Milley take the first round in the woodshed as Carlson notes the absolute idiocy of what our military has been focusing on over the last decade or so.  We have generals more worried about "white rage" and people who don't want to wear masks than jihadis.  But the real highlight is the takedown of Jake Sullivan.  Carlson quips that Sullivan "is 44-years-old, and as far as we can tell, he's never actually had a real job."  Rather, Sullivan is part of a disturbing trend in Washington whereby know-nothings with fancy degrees are placed in high positions of power.  We saw it with Ben Rhodes under Barack Obama, who was perhaps the most disastrous national security adviser in modern history.

Joe Biden Should Step Down Over Afghanistan.  There appears to have been no plan to evacuate American citizens from Afghanistan.  Those civilians are being told "you're on your own" in getting to the airport.  It is infuriating coming from the administration that came in saying the last President did not do his job in protecting Americans from a virus.  We abandoned the Afghanistan military, left weapons of war in the hands of the Taliban.  We have done little to ensure the safety and well-being of the people there, American or not.  We did not communicate and are not communicating with our allies.  The entire plan seems to have been "We'll be out before the 20th anniversary of September 11, 2001."  Biden gave a speech to Americans where he claimed the buck stops with him and then proceeded to blame everyone from Donald Trump to the Afghan military for the disastrous pull-out.  There was no buck stopping with him.

Number of Americans Trapped in Afghanistan May Be Even Worse Than the Biden Team Is Telling Us.  As we reported earlier, the Biden team is saying that there may be up to 10,000 Americans who still need to be rescued from Afghanistan.  I wrote previously about how they were begging people like Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) for help because our government wasn't responding and had just told them to shelter in place and fill out a form.  But it may be even worse than that, according to Bush Assistant Secretary of State Robert Charles.  According to Charles, he said there was a tally and it was between 15,000 and 40,000 people still waiting to be told when they'll be saved.

Intel Agencies Warned of Afghan Collapse as Biden Publicly Downplayed Possibility.  U.S. intelligence agencies warned of the collapse of the Afghan military and government at the hands of a resurgent Taliban over the summer, as President Biden publicly downplayed the possibility of a government rout.  While Biden assured Americans on July 8 that the Afghan regime's disintegration was far from inevitable, quieting fears of a "Saigon-like" foreign policy fiasco, previous intelligence reports indicated that Afghan security forces as well as the seat of government in Kabul were weakening and could falter, current and former American government officials told the New York Times.  A specific July report affirmed the increasingly vulnerable position of the capital to attack as the Taliban advanced across the country, capturing a chain of major provincial cities and towns, a person familiar with the intelligence informed the Times.

The Biden Illusion Crumbles to Dust.  From 11:15 a.m., Thursday, August 12, to a little past 4 p.m., Monday, August 16, President Joe Biden did not appear in public. [...] When the president did finally speak, he read from a teleprompter for 20 minutes, took no questions, and barely acknowledged that he had assured Americans, at the beginning of July, that no part of this disaster would unfold this way.  The lone admission was a vague, passive-voice, "this did unfold more quickly than we had anticipated," a strong nominee for the Disingenuous Public Relations Spin Hall of Fame. [...] Biden announced to the world that he finds everything that we're witnessing preferable to fighting the Taliban.  A little more than a month after Biden assured Americans that, "The likelihood there's going to be the Taliban overrunning everything and owning the whole country is highly unlikely," the president had the audacity to claim that, "We were clear-eyed about the risks."

The Afghanistan Failure Proves America's Regime Isn't Fit To Lead.  For nearly 20 years, American men and women have gone to Afghanistan and performed heroically.  But they were asked by our leaders to do an impossible task:  to turn a mountain backwater into a thriving democracy.  We lost our best and brightest in those mountains — men and women who would have started families, built businesses, and sustained communities.  My heart breaks that these dead may have died in vain.  But they won't if we learn the long-term lesson of Afghanistan:  the people who lead this country aren't fit for the task.  In this moment, it is tempting to focus on the short term.  Undoubtedly, the Biden administration has failed miserably in the short term.  They telegraphed and delayed our departure date, maximizing the Taliban's planning abilities, and they abandoned Afghanistan at the peak of Taliban fighting season.  They allowed critical weapons technology to fall into the hands of the enemy.  Perhaps most inexplicably, they abandoned the most important airbase before they ensured safe passage for Americans leaving the country.

Afghanistan and the Cost of Having a 'Normal' President.  Consider this a letter of congratulations.  I address it to Democrats everywhere who told us that Joe Biden would return the United States to a state of normality.  I address it also to those, many putative Republicans as well as Democrats, who fought tooth-and-nail against Donald Trump because — well, because he was not a "normal" politician.  Donald Trump issued mean tweets.  He made fun of the media, often singling out reporters by name.  He was bombastic (more bombastic than President Joe Biden?).  He lied (again, did he lie more often than Biden?).  No thoughtful person believed there was anything to the fabricated gossip about Russian collusion in determining the 2016 election — which does not, of course, mean that that tissue of grotesque lies was not believed and assiduously circulated by many Big Names in the media.  Nor did it insulate Trump from being compared to virtually every tyrant in history ("literally Hitler," remember?).  There is now a lot of hand-wringing about the performance of Joe Biden.

'The buck stops with me,' says Biden but then proceeds to blame Afghan fiasco on Trump and locaIs who failed to fight the Taliban — before ducking questions and fleeing for Camp David.  President Joe Biden delivered a speech of quiet fury at the White House on Monday [8/16/2021], defending his decision to bring home U.S. troops before blaming Afghan leaders for their failure to prevent the country collapsing.  'I stand squarely behind my decision,' Biden said.  'After 20 years I've learned the hard way.  That there was never a good time to withdraw U.S. forces.  That's why we're still there.'  Later Monday night, Biden authorized up to $500 million from an emergency fund to meet 'unexpected urgent' refugee needs stemming from the situation in Afghanistan, including for Afghan special immigration visa applicants, the White House said.

Biden Refuses to Take Questions From Reporters After Blaming Trump For His Afghanistan Disaster.  Joe Biden on Monday [8/16/2021] delivered a short speech on his Afghanistan disaster.  After mumbling through prepared remarks, blaming Trump and the Afghan security forces on his botched withdrawal, Biden fled the lectern without taking any questions from reporters.  Biden delivered the worst speech ever, said he stands by his decision to hastily withdraw from Afghanistan and admitted it 'unfolded more quickly that he anticipated.'  After blaming everyone under the sun, Biden quickly took off as reporters shouted questions.

Biden could have stopped the Taliban.  He chose not to.  The Taliban is sweeping across Afghanistan seizing more than a dozen provincial capitals in the past week, and is poised to seize more.  Afghan defense forces, finding themselves mostly cut off from U.S. air support, haven't been able to stop them, and the Afghan government may not survive for much longer.  The United States has all but abandoned the country.  A disastrous Taliban takeover wasn't inevitable.  President Biden said his hands were tied to a withdrawal given the awful peace deal negotiated between the Trump administration and the Taliban.  But there was still a way to pull out American troops while giving our Afghan partners a better chance to hold the gains we made with them over the last two decades.  Mr. Biden chose otherwise.  The way he announced the drawdown and eventual departure of American troops — at the start of the fighting season, on a rapid timeline and sans adequate coordination with the Afghan government — has in part gotten us into the current situation.

Leadership? Biden Goes Back to His Vacation After Addressing Afghanistan Crisis.  Joe Biden was widely criticized for going on vacation last week as Afghanistan fell to the Taliban.  After someone at the White House apparently figured out that the optics of this vacation were awful, it was announced that Biden would return to the White House to address the situation.  While it seemed like Biden was sacrificing his vacation by cutting it short, after his ten-minute speech, in which he blamed everyone but himself for the situation before saying "the buck stops with me," he went right back to Camp David to get back to his rest and relaxation time.

The Worst Part?  The Democrats Can't Use the 25th Amendment.  Kamala Harris is currently the tie-breaking vote in the Senate, and Republicans are only crossing over if Mitch McConnell supports a bill or if he realizes the Republicans will lose the fight anyway.  He has a very tight grip on his caucus, and he can get his 50 votes whipped if he wants to make a stand.  So far, he hasn't had to.  But there is a lot of power to be had in a 50-50 Senate with no tie-breaking vote, and he will take advantage of it.  So, Kamala Harris becoming the President via the 25th Amendment means the Democrats lose their tie-breaking vote in the Senate, and without a 51st vote, there is no way for the Democrats to break a tie in the Senate in order to confirm a replacement Vice President.  They are effectively stuck.

Biden's Failure on Afghanistan Has Been So Bad That Even a Friendly Press Corps Has Bailed on Him.  The U.S. efforts in Afghanistan have been undone so quickly after Washington spent trillions of dollars there over almost 20 years after 9/11.  Whatever you may think of the war and whether the United States should have withdrawn, there is no way to spin the consequences of what has transpired in Afghanistan.  It's so bad that even the friendly mainstream media has bailed on Biden to report this doom and gloom.  The MSM has rightly criticized the administration from how it conducted the withdrawal to it abandoning the Afghan translators and others that helped U.S. forces.  The MSM has also covered the part about the administration leaving behind the women who will again live under repressive Taliban rule.  The optics of the immoral abandonment cannot be ignored.

With 10,000 Americans Still in Afghanistan, Biden's Nightmare Is Far From Over.  Joe Biden will be haunted by those images of U.S. helicopters beating a hasty retreat from Afghanistan.  But his Afghanistan nightmare is only beginning.  There are between 5,000 and 10,000 Americans still stuck in Kabul, according to the Pentagon.  And the military apparently has no plan to evacuate them.  The possibility, indeed, the probability, that the Taliban or one of its rogue offshoots will start snatching Americans has always been there.  The reason is that the Americans will be huge bargaining chips — not just with the U.S. but with whatever government emerges in Afghanistan.  Hostage takers will be able to barter for power in the chaos following the collapse of civil authority in Kabul — just like the Iranians did in the aftermath of the fall of the Shah.

Fmr CIA Analyst Zeller:  Biden Lied, No Plan to Stop Allies Being Slaughtered by 'Nazi' Taliban.  Former CIA analyst Matt Zeller told MSNBC's Nicolle Wallace Monday on her show "Deadline" that President Joe Biden lied to the American people during his address on the chaotic evacuation of Afghans that worked with our military over the last 20 years.  On Biden's speech, Zeller said, "I feel like I watched a different speech than the rest of you guys.  I was appalled.  There was such a profound bald-faced lie in that speech, the idea we planned for every contingency?  I have been personally trying to tell this administration since it took office.  I have been trying to tell our government for years this was coming.  We sent them plan after plan on how to evacuate these people.  Nobody listened to us.  They didn't plan for the evacuation of our Afghan war-time allies.  They're trying to conduct it now at the 11th hour."

Trump Issues Blunt Response to Joe Biden's Afghanistan Speech.  Former President Donald Trump issued a short statement after President Joe Biden delivered maybe one of the worst speeches in US history where he blamed Trump for his own disastrous withdraw from Afghanistan while defending his decision to go through with the United States' abrupt removal from the region.  Trump made sure to punch back in a statement:  "It's not that we left Afghanistan.  It's the grossly incompetent way we left!"

Ex-CIA chief Panetta:  Afghan debacle is Bay of Pigs moment for Biden.  Former Defense Secretary Leon Panetta compared the reconquest of Afghanistan by the Taliban to the abortive CIA-backed Bay of Pigs invasion of Cuba from the early 1960s Monday, adding that the collapse of the Western-backed government in Kabul had harmed America's credibility.  "This is a situation that deteriorated rapidly, beyond anyone's imagination," Panetta, a former CIA director under Barack Obama and a former White House chief of staff to Bill Clinton, told CNN.  "No one expected what happened.  No one expected the Taliban to move as quickly as they did.  They obviously had a strategy to do this ... and we were not aware of just how rapidly that would happen."

Taliban leader was freed from Guantanamo Bay in 2014 swap by Obama.  When President Barack Obama released five Taliban commanders from the Guantanamo Bay prison in exchange for an American deserter in 2014, he assured a wary public that the dangerous enemy combatants would be transferred to Qatar and kept from causing any trouble in Afghanistan.  In fact, they were left free to engineer Sunday's sacking of Kabul.  Soon after gaining their freedom, some of the notorious Taliban Five pledged to return to fight Americans in Afghanistan and made contacts with active Taliban militants there.  But the Obama-Biden administration turned a blind eye to the disturbing intelligence reports, and it wasn't long before the freed detainees used Qatar as a base to form a regime in exile.  Eventually, they were recognized by Western diplomats as official representatives of the Taliban during recent "peace" talks.

Worse Than Saigon.  While President Joe Biden cowers at Camp David, the Taliban are humiliating America.  The retreat from Afghanistan is our worst foreign-policy disaster in a generation.  As the Taliban marches into Kabul, they're murdering civilians, reimposing their vicious Islamist law, and preparing to turn Afghanistan back into a bandit regime.  The U.S. embassy has told Americans to shelter in place.  Refugees are fleeing to the airport, begging to escape the coming bloodbath.  None of this had to happen.

Biden's Deflection Won't Work.  Joe Biden's speech today [8/16/2021] was a disgrace.  He read briefly from a teleprompter, and took neither questions nor responsibility.  It is reasonable to infer that his mental condition is such that he is not able to answer questions, or else his actions have been so indefensible that there is no answer to the questions that might be asked.  [Video clip]

Biden's appalling speech on Afghanistan merits a 25th Amendment discussion.  After nearly a week of radio silence while the Taliban were undoing 20 years of American investment in Afghanistan, Joe Biden returned to the White House to read from a teleprompter for under 20 minutes.  Given the predictable straw man he presented of an all-or-nothing binary choice between "forever war" and immediate abandonment, it was par for the course to see Biden try to blame his predecessor.  Biden's tactless defense consisted of impugning Afghans.  It was followed by his hasty departure without taking a single question from a group of reporters he hand-picked under the guise of "social distancing."  (Washington, D.C.'s total COVID-19 death toll this month:  one.)  This leaves only the ghastly conclusion Biden has no idea what [...] happened in the last week.  Biden will return to Camp David to vacation while Kabul burns.  This ought to leave the Cabinet — especially Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin, who reportedly begged Biden not to initiate such a hasty and disorderly withdrawal — wondering whether the president is willfully derelict in his duty, choosing to summer instead of govern, or simply incapable of handling his office.

Hiding from Afghanistan questions is the Biden playbook.  President Joe Biden has disappeared as his withdrawal from Afghanistan has resulted in the Taliban taking the country in a matter of days.  This isn't a surprise:  Biden did his best to avoid real questions throughout the campaign because he has no answers.  Biden's vanishing act during the campaign was designed not just to keep the narrative focus on former President Donald Trump but to keep Biden from answering tough questions about his own policies and track record.  It was most notable when he took the entire day off after the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg so he could avoid answering questions about packing the Supreme Court and about what kind of left-wing judges Biden himself would nominate as president.

Nobody home:  As Afghanistan collapses, Joe Biden goes on vacation.  Joe Biden's team at the White House spends a lot of time obsessing about 'optics.'  They insist there will be no Saigon-style evacuation in Afghanistan as Americans bail out.  Last July 8, Joe assured us there was no chance of Taliban takeover.  It's always about the optics, not the facts on the ground.  So what is one to make of Joe Biden heading off for a five-day vacation?  A major U.S. military commitment in Afghanistan is collapsing before the entire world's eyes.  And the White House?  Nobody's home at the White House.  Joe's got other things to do.  The White House says Biden is off to play with his grandchildren.  He'll catch up when he gets back.  Which is atrocious optics, and much, much more.  His entire presidency so far has been a failure of leadership and planning.

We're Fleeing Afghanistan.  Now What?  The withdrawal of U.S. forces from Afghanistan began with President Trump, who said Americans were tired of an war with no end in sight.  He was correct.  Americans were tired of seeing our brave young soldiers coming home with their arms, legs, and faces blown off or not coming home at all.  What was it for?  What was the purpose? [...] Biden's spokesperson Jen Psaki warned the Afghans that if they continue their attacks on the Afghan government, they will risk isolation from the international community.  Does anybody in his right mind think that these people care about that?  Nothing could be more naïve.  What we are seeing is a possibly historic victory for Islamic jihad, the radical Islamic conquest of a people.

Last Major City in Northern Afghanistan Falls to Taliban While Joe Biden Vacations at Camp David.  As part of "Biden's Worst Week as President Yet," the president left Washington, D.C. on Thursday for Delaware, and then headed to Camp David. [...] President Biden will be at Camp David until Wednesday, Aug. 18.  No public events will be scheduled.

Biden administration turns into a dumpster fire of blame-evasion.  Sheer cowardice has always been a Biden hallmark, so it might at first glance seem to be why Joe Biden is now in hiding as Afghanistan's collapse, the biggest foreign policy failure since Vietnam, engulfs the news.  But evidence is mounting that something different is going on:  the Biden team is splintering into some kind of internal warfare and trying to conceal its disarray.  Victory, after all, has a thousand fathers, as JFK used to say, and defeat is an orphan.  The Bidenites aren't stupid enough to believe their own propaganda about the Afghan horror being a news-cycle nothingburger, something that can be gone and forgotten if they can stay away from the cameras for a few days.  They know that this is a defeat of epic proportions.  So we are indeed seeing signs of an administration in disarray.

Weakness.  The Taliban have taken measure of Mr. Biden (and Mrs. Harris) and surely know and accept that there will be short-term conflict with the United States as they resurrect the Afghan Caliphate and return their country to the seventh century.  But they also know there is no one in American leadership willing to fight to protect what remains of America's interests.  Mr. Biden will not.  Mrs. Harris even less so.  The Chinese Communists must be watching our rapidly unfolding humiliation in Afghanistan and wondering whether now is the time to "re-assimilate" the rogue province of Taiwan into the greater People's Republic.  Like the Taliban, the Chinese leaders see that Mr. Biden, our Commander in Chief, has created an unsalvageable situation and is struggling to respond to events instead of shaping them.  On the heels of such a public and abject failure of leadership, will Mr. Biden order the Seventh Fleet to steam into the Taiwan Strait and meet the Chinese if they launch an invasion?  It is hard to believe on his track record that he will.

Biden Photo at Camp David Raises Red Flags as Questions Swirl About President's Whereabouts.  As Afghanistan crumbled on Sunday, the American people had one question on their minds: 'Where is the president?'  Joe Biden had taken off on vacation days ago to his Camp David "retreat" (as CNN called it) and was nowhere to be found.  Kabul fell and the presidential palace was overrun.  Afghanis were executed in the streets.  Interpreters sought desperately to flee from Kabul International Airport.  The Taliban declared the two-decades-long war "over."  But the word came on Sunday afternoon that Biden would not be giving an address to the American people.  A single photo was tweeted from the White House account with a picture of Biden being "briefed."  [Tweet] [...] Also, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki suddenly announced on Sunday night that she would be taking the entire week off.  No one knows quite for certain what is going on in Afghanistan, or in the White House, for that matter.  But as a near 20-year war comes to a disastrous close, the Biden White House is in full retreat, and no one is brave enough to give Americans any direct answers.

Yes, Joe, it's like Saigon.  Joe Biden made a big deal about his rigid, hasty, ill-planned, badly executed Afghan pullout not being another Saigon, a reference to the disgraceful final pullout of the U.S. presence in Vietnam in 1975.  [Tweets]  Those are people so terrified of what will happen to them under the Taliban they can't think straight.  They're desperate to get out.  They have no place to go.  They know the Taliban will rule forever and they will be as powerless as Cubans to stop it.  There's no safe haven even in Kabul anymore, they know that the Taliban is going rule with an iron hand erasing all freedoms, all means of getting them out of power, and will torture, rob, maim, and kill them.  The Taliban never keep their word on anything, ever, and these people know it.  There's also this:  Fear.  In the city, outside the airport, no one wants to come out.  They are terrified.  The State Department urged Americans who were still in the city to "shelter in place" and not come to the airport.  The Afghanis who live in Kabul didn't need to be told.

"The most infamous and devastating press conference ever held by an American President.".  [Tweet]

This is Joe Biden's Jimmy Carter moment.  President Biden's profligate spending policies are unleashing inflation that is sparking voter distrust so noticeable that even NPR is sounding the alarm.  He is begging OPEC to come up with more oil while interfering with US production. [...] Our president comes across as weak, meek, ineffectual, incompetent and confused.  (Momentarily confusing South and North Vietnam doesn't even make the list of the top 100 senior moments we've seen this year from this near-octogenarian, despite the fact that his staff is keeping him hidden to a degree with little if any precedent in the past half-century.)  Biden is embarrassing the United States in real time, and I await with eagerness the Biden version of the blame-shifting Malaise Speech.  Biden's version, of course, will be the This Is All Trump's Fault speech.

The American president isn't present, and that's a problem.  Scathing criticisms of Joe Biden's disastrous cut-and-run in Afghanistan have been issued by even his media cheerleaders at CNN, NPR and the New York Times.  Career diplomats including former Obama officials have publicly excoriated his administration for incompetence.  Foreign leaders are baffled.  Only the Taliban is happy. [...] Biden assured us just a month ago that this wouldn't happen.  He said the Afghan soldiers far outnumbered the Taliban, and there would be no "Saigon" moment where American embassy staff are helicoptered from the roof of the embassy as the barbarians bang down the gate.  But here we are, only a month later, and that's roughly what is happening.  It's in part because Biden discontinued nearly all the air support that was key to the Afghan government's military.  The Taliban now own the entire country, and are threatening even the chaotic Kabul airport where Afghans are clinging to the outside of airplanes trying to take off.  Hundreds or perhaps thousands of Americans may be trapped.

White House picture of Biden on Afghanistan video conference might have revealed CIA operatives.  A tweet Sunday [8/15/2021] by the White House showing pictures of President Biden hosting a video conference with other top U.S. officials about the Afghanistan crisis might have revealed the identities of CIA operatives, according to a former U.S. diplomat and other social media posters.  "This morning, the President and Vice President met with their national security team and senior officials to hear updates on the draw down of our civilian personnel in Afghanistan, evacuations of SIV applicants and other Afghan allies, and the ongoing security situation in Kabul," reads the tweet, which included a picture of Biden looking at a video screen with eight panels — including one labeled "CIA" and another labeled "Doha Station," in Qatar.

Joe Biden's defeat will echo for eternity.  Look at everything else he has messed up.  His first act in office was to dismantle hard-won Trump-era border protection measures.  The inevitable illegal migrant surge at the southern border has turned into an unchecked invasion, with national security and public health risks that will ricochet through history.  At this stage, we can confidently say that Joe Biden has the reverse Midas touch.  In Afghanistan, it didn't have to be like this.  The humiliating scenes of Americans evacuating from Kabul's airport were avoidable, as is the specter of American helicopters, planes, Humvees, weapons and ammunition in the hands of our enemies.

Report: Biden Refused to Listen to Top Generals' Warnings, Pulled Out of Afghanistan Anyway.  President Joe Biden is quickly proving that he is not only a threat to the safety of Americans, but he is also a threat to people throughout the world.  According to a bombshell report, Biden refused to listen to the advice of his top military officials and decided to move ahead with the disastrous US pullout in Afghanistan.  Biden allegedly overruled his generals who advised that he should keep 2,500 servicemen on the ground in Afghanistan to help with negotiations between Afghanistan and the Taliban.  Instead, Biden decided to conduct a complete withdraw which led to a quick Taliban takeover who now control many US assets including weaponry, helicopters and other vehicles.

The Shame of Joe Biden.  Joe Biden announced his decision to withdraw all military forces from Afghanistan, while explicitly deriding the idea that the Taliban would quickly take over the country.  He was wrong.  Now he has been reduced to pleading with the Taliban to be nice, lest they forfeit their entitlement to foreign aid.  We have to go back at least to the Carter administration to find such pathetic behavior by a president.  Having grossly miscalculated the situation in Afghanistan, Biden is now scrambling to return forces to that country, equivalent to those he just withdrew.  His only goal at this point is to get American citizens out before we see pictures of helicopters taking off from the roof of the embassy in Kabul as friendly Afghans cling to their runners.

Joe Biden isn't the next FDR, he's the next Jimmy Carter.  [I]t is clear Biden is just like Jimmy Carter, but worse.  The steady creep of inflation during Biden's first several months in office has already reminded many of the Carter years.  But the disaster in Afghanistan, the rushed, chaotic withdrawal and the Taliban's subsequent takeover, has solidified the similarity between the two administrations.  During Carter's administration, tensions in Iran were beginning to boil over.  For a while, Carter remained committed to the U.S.'s longtime ally, the shah of Iran, but eventually tossed him aside and denied him asylum after it became clear Islamic revolutionaries were fueling anti-American sentiment in the region.  Carter later relented under political pressure and allowed the shah to come to the U.S. to receive medical treatment, but he failed to make sure American officials in Iran were protected in case there was retaliation.  As a result, the Islamists were able to hold 52 Americans hostage for 444 days.  And to this day, we still face the threat of a radicalized Iran.

Biden Team Goes AWOL in the Middle of Afghanistan Disaster.  While the disaster is unfolding in Afghanistan, Joe Biden is off on vacation at Camp David.  As we reported yesterday, his handlers said that he may deign to talk to us within in the next "few days."  If they can get him into a coherent position to respond to everything that has happened.  The only thing they did was release a picture of him allegedly meeting with his national security team.  But they forgot to obscure the CIA operatives on the screen.

Networks Abandon 'Completely Wrong' Biden's 'Saigon on Steroids'.  The shocking fall of Afghanistan to the Taliban is such a failure that even the liberal networks on Monday [8/16/2021] have abandoned Joe Biden's decision making (at least for now), hammering the President as "completely wrong" and executing a Vietnam-esque Saigon "debacle."  On NBC's Today, co-host Savannah Guthrie opened the show by blasting, "A catastrophe for its people and a debacle for the Biden administration.  A triumphant Taliban storming the presidential palace in Kabul, seizing total control of the country."  Guthrie piled on:  "And the President at Camp David standing by his decision but under fire for a botched withdrawal."  All three networks eagerly and repeatedly compared Biden's disaster to the fall of Vietnam.  NBC chief foreign correspondent Richard Engel linked, "The Taliban had been taking potshots at the U.S. transport planes as they leave and many are drawing comparisons to the U.S. evacuation from Saigon."

President Trump Calls On Biden To Resign.  Moments ago, President Trump called on Joe Biden to resign from office after yet another monumental failure, this time on the foreign policy front.  As the crisis has continued to worsen in Afghanistan, Biden has been largely silent, mainly issuing boilerplate Twitter responses and casually telling the country he'll update us on the situation "in a couple of days".  In response, President Trump issued the following blistering statement:  "It is time for Joe Biden to resign in disgrace for what he has allowed to happen in Afghanistan, along with the tremendous surge in COVID, the border catastrophe, the destruction of energy independence, and our crippled economy.  It shouldn't be a big deal, because he wasn't elected legitimately in the first place!", Trump said.

Joe Biden Remains Hiding at Camp David After Afghanistan Collapses.  President Joe Biden will remain hidden at his presidential retreat at Camp David through Monday [8/16/2021], according to the White House, as the Taliban swiftly seized control of Afghanistan.  The president's daily guidance for Monday indicated Biden would remain at Camp David for at least one more day, with no public events scheduled.

Afghanistan Didn't Have to End This Way, but We Made Sure It Did.  This is a war that we won and then perversely chose to lose.  When the battle for Tora Bora ended in December 2001, we had achieved 100% of the objectives that President Bush laid out in his October 7, 2001, speech to the nation. [...] There was no reason to get involved in Afghanistan.  The "tell" was that no one could ever tell you what a win in Afghanistan looked like.  It had no national identity, no common language, [very] few natural resources, a medieval, at best, road and power grid, no national economy, no history of civil society.  It was landlocked, isolated, and impoverished.  It seemed to be pretty damned happy with the status quo, if you talked to anyone but Afghan émigrés on the DC cocktail circuit.  The correct solution, the school solution, if you will, would have been to withdraw US military forces less some Special Forces advisers, provide technical assistance to the forces trying to establish a new government, and underscore the warning to the new government that if terrorists again use Afghanistan as a refuge, we will be back to kill people and break things.  That isn't what happened.

Our Secretary of State does his best Baghdad Bob imitation.  Back in 2003, one of the most amusing things to watch on the news was Baghdad Bob (real name:  Muhammad Saeed al-Sahhaf).  He was the press spokesman for Saddam Hussein's administration during the 2003 Iraq invasion.  Even as American tanks were rolling into Baghdad behind him, al-Sahhaf was earnestly insisting that the Americans were on the verge of defeat (e.g., committing suicide "by the hundreds") and that Hussein and his troops would be triumphant.  Now, in the form of Secretary of State Antony Blinken, we have our own Baghdad Bob.  Of course, the entire notion of Baghdad Bob is less funny when Blinken is speaking about mission success even as the Taliban invades Kabul, aided by all the materiels the Americans abandoned; the embassy is evacuated; the airport is a scene of chaos and fear; tens of thousands of refugees are on the move; Afghan troops are being slaughtered; and Afghan girls and women to rape and sex slavery.  And no, that's not exaggeration or literary license on my part.  Despite the helicopter evacuation of the American embassy, Blinken insisted that what's happening is nothing like America's departure from Saigon in 1975.

Delaware: Where transparency goes to die.  The president of the United States is hiding in his basement — again.  Which is very peculiar stuff.  After all, the White House is nice, with all that security, the beautiful rose garden, the manicured lawn, and the fancy chandeliers.  There are strapping Marines who open doors and salute the dwellers.  If you have to work from home, 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue is a choice location.  So why is the president abandoning the special confines of his Washington, D.C. residence and scampering off to northern Delaware and his compound on Barley Mill Road?  That is only the first question. [...] If Joe meets, consults, negotiates or otherwise converses with anyone on behalf of the people of the United States, do we not have a right to know who these people are, and the subject matter or reason for the meeting?

Who Else Is Tired Of All This Winning Under Biden?  In early July, President Joe Biden said the sudden withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan wouldn't cause a repeat of the Saigon disaster in Vietnam.  "None whatsoever.  Zero," Biden said in response to a reporter's question about the chances of a repeat.  "There's going to be no circumstance where you see people being lifted off the roof of a embassy in the — of the United States from Afghanistan.  It is not at all comparable."  Five weeks later, that is exactly what happened, as the Taliban took over Kabul and, as the Washington Post reported it, the "U.S. scrambled to evacuate embassy staff and accelerate the rescue and relocation of Afghans who aided the U.S. military.  Helicopters began landing at the U.S. Embassy early Sunday and armored diplomatic vehicles were seen leaving the area around the compound. ... Smoke rose from the embassy's roof as diplomats destroyed documents to keep them from falling into the Taliban's hands."

The Afghanistan Collapse:  Americans died for this?  We were promised that the US and coalition efforts in Afghanistan would bring peace to a land of war and democracy to a land of terrorists, theocrats, and warlords.  And now, after 2,448 American service member deaths and spending over $2 trillion, the Taliban controls Afghanistan and the Acting US Ambassador has fled the $770 million embassy in Kabul (which the Taliban now owns).  The Afghan presidential palace is theirs.  We were promised by George W. Bush and his administration that the promotion of democracy — even through military force — would "be a watershed event in the global democratic revolution."  That the United States, through supporting the "growth of democratic movements and institutions in every nation and culture," could end "tyranny in our world."  He said that "the advance of freedom will lead to peace," that the multi-generational project in Afghanistan was essential "for the sake of our own security." [...] They all lied.

Report: Biden Ordered Afghanistan Pullout Against Top Generals' Warnings.  President Joe Biden reportedly overruled the advice of his top military officials when ordering the United States's pullout from Afghanistan.  Biden met with several top military commanders before announcing his intent to withdraw the United States completely from Afghanistan.  The generals recommended Biden leave a force of 2,500 servicemen in the country and step up negotiations with the Taliban for a peace deal.  The president declined their advice. [...] The Afghanistan government is quickly crumbling.  Afghan President Ashraf Ghani fled the country Sunday morning as Taliban militants entered Kabul, the nation's capital city.  The Taliban and what is left of the government are negotiating a transfer of power.

Blame Biden for Afghanistan's Return to the Dark Ages.  The Joe Biden who promised to put human rights at the center of his foreign policy is the same Joe Biden now stubbornly paving the way for the world's cruelest human-rights abusers to re-establish their regime in Afghanistan.  Biden had promised us that he would restore the soul of America, but words are cheap.  As the remaining U.S. troops have left Afghanistan, Afghan provinces have been falling to the Taliban like dominos.  Men of the Afghan military are reportedly being executed.  Women and young girls are being forced into marriage and sex slavery.  And the same Biden administration that prides itself on its concern for social justice, racial justice, gender justice, and LGBT pride is going to stand by and watch girls' schools shut down, ethnic cleansing against Shi'ite Hazaras, and homosexuals stoned to death.

Levin: Biden operating 'the most diabolical presidency and Democratic Party probably since slavery'.  President Biden is engineering the "most diabolical presidency and most diabolical Democratic Party, probably since slavery," former Reagan Justice Department chief of staff Mark Levin said Sunday on "Life, Liberty & Levin."  Hosting guests Stephen Moore and Stephen Miller, Levin called the sudden "Marxist" lurch of the federal government a "massive de-growth movement dress[ed] up as climate change and the Green New Deal."  He added that congressional Democrats with Biden's blessing seek to permanently transform America from a capitalist model to one that is far to the left by ushering in "American Marxism" through massive legislative bills disguised as "infrastructure" and "voting rights."  Combined, he said, the Democrats seek to nullify the opposition Republican Party and control all levers of power in a way not seen in over 150 years.

As 'Biden's Saigon' Becomes Reality, Pelosi Heaps Praise on Disastrous US Exit.  Joe Biden might just have secured his place as the most incompetent president of the United States in history, but Nancy Pelosi long ago secured her place as the most purposely divisive, partisan political hack to ever wield the Speaker's gavel.  The detached-from-reality statement released by the 81-year-old Pelosi on Sunday [8/15/2021] praising Biden's disastrous handling of the embarrassing "Escape from Afghanistan" merely secured her position in the top slot.

Biden Never Saw What Hit Him.  Not since the fall of France in May 1940 has so mighty a paper force collapsed so swiftly before a foe.  Biden has beaten the record and not in a good way.  That's the good news.  The bad news is that to this considerable tale of woe is likely to be added as much mischief as America's enemies can contrive.  They will pile it on.  For no less than the Taliban, America's near-peer adversaries, now have the estimate of the hapless man in the White House.  This confirmation of incapacity is possibly a greater loss than the fall of Afghanistan itself.  They know too that there is little American institutions can do to fix this problem in the short term.  The same partisan politics that sent compromise mediocrities to the White House will keep them there until 2024.  The same identity politics the balkanizers counted on to keep them in power will hinder the arrival of help from those they treated with contempt.  This combination of spiraling crisis and institutional paralysis means America and its allies are probably entering a period of rising danger which no one, not even America's enemies, can control.

Joe Biden, Commander in Retreat.  The depth of Joe Biden's ineptitude is stunning.  Nothing he's done in his first seven months has shown a breadth of competency — but his failure with Afghanistan has moved to the top of the list of failures.  Biden made promises he couldn't keep.  Just hours after "guaranteeing" that Kabul would not be a repeat to Saigon 1975, with helicopters evacuating personnel from the roof our embassy, that is precisely what is happening.  Biden issued a paper tiger, "Play nice or I'll get really mad" warning to the Taliban that, no doubt, was met with ridicule and mocking laughter.  The Taliban will do as they wish, likely using the equipment we left behind.  Biden's stated goal was to be fully out of Afghanistan by the 20th anniversary of 9/11.  Why he picked that date is incomprehensible.

Talibanistan.  To the surprise of no one except the entire Biden administration, our alleged intelligence agencies, our wokest-ever military, and the mainstream media, Afghanistan has quickly been taken over by the Taliban while remaining Americans and betrayed allies scramble for survival and escape.  This is a devastating military disaster which will likely be viewed historically as the event which marked the end of America as a credible world superpower.  Not that this was difficult to see coming, especially with Clueless Joe as a figurehead for foreign policy decisions being made by the resurrected (from Hell) Obama administration.

Bumbling Biden Radio Silent to Americans on 'Crisis,' May Have Outed CIA.  As everything has been falling apart into chaos in Afghanistan, Joe Biden has been silent on his vacation at Camp David.  But there's "breaking" CNN news now.  Administration officials told them Biden's going to address the "crisis" in Afghanistan "in the next few days."  [Tweet]  Is Biden losing his mind, when his people say things like this?  Actually one of our frequent readers tells me I have to stop assuming that he has any mind left to lose, that I'm giving him too much credit.  People are fleeing for their lives out of the airport; troops have to go back in to get them.  But Biden will say something and try to blame President Donald Trump in the "next few days?"  That's not living in reality.

At Last U.S. Troops Leave the Afghan War, but Biden Must Screw That up First.  Look, very few Americans want Americans to keep fighting in Afghanistan.  Twenty years — 19 of them mission creep — is more than enough time to do it, if you can.  But there's withdrawing, and then there is fleeing.  The American president is fleeing.  Like every president, Joe Biden has numerous problems, [...] Many, in fact, are of his own making.  Like withdrawing during the peak Afghan fighting season, instead of waiting for winter. [...] The optics are also awful, at home and abroad, and they cement the depressing impression that the Biden Administration is really a weak, apologetic 2.0 version of the Barack Obama Administration.

Biden Proven Wrong Again, as Helicopters Land on US Embassy Roof.  We're seeing a tragedy happening in Afghanistan because of Joe Biden's precipitous withdrawal without apparently any real preparation with the Afghan government or understanding the movement of the Taliban.  Now that the Taliban are moving into Kabul, we likely will not be able to save thousands of our allies who are now behind enemy lines.  Hopefully, we're able to get our own people out in time — even that may be a question now.  On Thursday, State Department spokesperson Ned Price talked about having "weeks" to get people out, when it was obvious it was days, if not hours, before the Taliban were at the gates.  The fact that the Biden bunch have been so ignorant right down the line about how to deal with all this and uncaring about getting our allies out when they have had months is just criminal.

It Sure Looks Like Joe Biden Sabotaged the Afghan Air Force.  With Afghanistan on fire, the airport in chaos, and uncertainty on how all US personnel will make it out alive, the recriminations for what is still transpiring are in full swing.  You'll be less than shocked to learn that some are blaming Donald Trump, who hasn't been president for the last seven months.  On the other hand, those living within the confines of our current reality are pointing the finger where it belongs, toward the current President of the United States.  While Joe Biden had previously taken credit for his supposedly fabulous withdrawal plan, he's now desperately trying to pass the buck, be it to Republicans or perhaps his own vice president.  Yet, things look to be even worse than they first appeared.  Reports are coming out that the reason the Afghan Air Force couldn't operate is that the Biden Administration banned foreign maintenance contractors (i.e. the only people with the expertise) from entering Afghanistan.

Biden's Historically Spectacular Miscalculations on Afghanistan.  Just five weeks ago, Biden assured Americans "[T]he likelihood there's going to be the Taliban overrunning everything and owning the whole country is highly unlikely."  What made that prediction ludicrous even at the time was that his own generals had been telling him that there were very few reliable units in the Afghan army that could resist the Taliban.  The endgame was always going to be played out swiftly and with minimum resistance from the Afghan national army.  In April, Biden said:  "We will not conduct a hasty rush to the exit.  We'll do it responsibly, deliberately, and safely."  How about now, Joe?

Joe Biden Finally Wakes up and Releases a Truly Awful Statement on Afghanistan.  The country is in the midst of, by far, the most chaotic week of Joe Biden's presidency.  Where is he?  Well, he's at Camp David for the next five days, after being in Delaware for most of the previous week.  Does that sound normal for a president in the current situation?  To be hidden away on a quasi-vacation while Afghanistan collapses and inflation soars?  Yet, here we are, with the reality that Biden isn't the president we need, but he's the president we have.  Now, he has awakened from his slumber to deliver a truly awful statement on Afghanistan, assuming he had any involvement in drafting it, that is.

Reality Bites Biden's Policies.  The Democrats' idiotic anti-fossil fuel campaign took a hit this week when Biden begged the Saudis to up production after shutting down as much of domestic production as he could.  (Apparently, he believes that oil from the Middle East doesn't affect the climate as much as fossil fuel from Canada and the U.S. Or, if it does affect the climate by warming it, that's now a good thing.) Dane Bjorn Lomborg who, unlike AOC and Greta, knows what he's talking about, explains that more people (166,000 of them) each year die from cold than die from heat.  In like manner to Biden's begging OPEC for more oil, California's loony decarbonization program hit a snag as it is forced to rely on carbon fuels to prevent widespread blackouts.

Saigon!  Bay of Pigs!  Benghazi!
Joe Biden heads to Camp David for the weekend while the Taliban rampages through Afghanistan.  President Joe Biden and first lady Jill Biden left Friday afternoon [8/13/2021] from Delaware for a long weekend at Camp David, as the president's planned withdrawal from Afghanistan is becoming a crisis.  Taliban fighters are closing in on Kabul, while more then 3,000 American troops are expected to arrive in the country this weekend, even though the Biden administration has set an August 31 deadline for all US forces to leave.  As the Bidens were departing from Delaware Air National Guard, the White House sent out a statement saying the president had been briefed about 'the ongoing efforts to safely drawdown the civilian footprint in Afghanistan.'

Biden's shameful Afghanistan pullout.  In July, when Joe Biden announced that he would be pulling the U.S. completely out of Afghanistan, he said:  "The likelihood there's going to be the Taliban overrunning everything and owning the whole country is highly unlikely."  Biden isn't bright.  He never has been.  But is he stupid enough to have believed it unlikely that the Taliban would, in short order, overrun Afghanistan and seize control of the whole country?  That's just what the Taliban is now doing, as anyone with an ounce of sense would have expected, not deemed "highly unlikely."

Sean Hannity says lawyers won't let him accept copy of Hunter Biden laptop.  Fox News host Sean Hannity said his lawyers won't accept a copy of the laptop believed to have belonged to Hunter Biden.  After showing a clip, obtained by the Daily Mail, of Biden telling a naked woman in bed about a 2018 bender in Las Vegas, in which he lost a laptop, and his ensuing fear of blackmail, Hannity explained why he himself does not have access to the materials.  "I have been offered the laptop, my lawyers won't let me accept it.  The reason, I'm told, is because of what is believed to be on it," he said on his show Wednesday [8/11/2021].  "I have three individual and separate sources that have told me that there are pictures on this laptop, probably the very things that alerted John Paul Mac, the computer repairman, to alert the FBI," Hannity added, appearing to allude to allegations of inappropriate content.

Biden maims US energy industry, then begs OPEC for oil.  During the pre-COVID-19 Trump era, the low price of gas helped sustain an economic boom that brought wage increases for lower-class workers and spurred unprecedented low levels of unemployment.  The main reason for the low gas prices was that a huge surge in domestic and North American production was driving prices down.  Even more importantly, the production was freeing the United States energy market from the vagaries of Middle Eastern politics and weakening such malign actors as Russian President Vladimir Putin, whose ability to sow chaos depends upon oil revenue.  During that period, thanks to fracking technology and a federal government committed to commonsense regulation, the U.S. became the world's leading oil producer.  It also became a net exporter of oil, even as the nation decreased carbon emissions, thanks to the surge in natural gas production.

Biden Bolts For Vacation After 5 Disastrous Developments This Week.  Democrat President Joe Biden bolted for vacation on Thursday, after returning to work midweek from being on vacation, following five damaging developments for the administration this week.  Biden departed the White House for a vacation in Wilmington, Delaware yesterday afternoon, after White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said earlier this week that the administration would not disclose who Biden meets with when goes back to his home state.  "And no, I can confirm we are not going to be providing information about the comings and goings of the President's grandchildren or people visiting him in Delaware," Psaki said.

Hunter Biden's Russian Prostitute Videos Indict Both His Father And U.S. Intelligence Agencies.  A Russian woman, a drug dealer, and two of his compatriots may have stolen a laptop from Hunter Biden in 2018, Hunter told a prostitute in another sex video, leaving the president's son concerned he may be blackmailed because of his father's political position.  While the salacious video of Hunter Biden released earlier this week exposes more details about the troubling lifestyle of the president's son, it reveals much more about a corrupt and complicit media, a corrupt and incompetent intelligence community, and a corrupt and compromised Joe Biden.

Team Biden Seems Caught Off Guard by Predictable Taliban Tragedy.  Since January 20, we've been subjected to a daily barrage of awful news, brought to us courtesy of the Joe Biden Oval Office Puppet Show.  This isn't a presidency, it's a national disaster.  Biden's Cabinet meetings should be run by FEMA.  It can be difficult to figure out which firehose of awfulness to focus on during any given news cycle.  One of the stories lurking in the background recently is the unmitigated disaster that is our hasty withdrawal from Afghanistan.  As with all Biden administration policy, the withdrawal seems like it was thrown together by a bunch of drunks who take all of their cues from MSNBC.

The Editor says...
Maybe Biden's cabinet meetings really are run by FEMA.  How would any of us know?  Nobody outside of Washington knows who is running the federal government.

The Biden Doctrine: Beg.  Joe Biden is begging the Taliban to spare the U.S. embassy when they knock down the Afghan capital of Kabul and overrun the country.  And with the fall of Kandahar, Herat, and all the other big Afghan cities, that could be any day now. [...] So after 20 years of warfare, the United States of America is reduced to begging the Taliban to spare our humble embassy so as to save America the humiliation of having a desperate, Saigon 1975-style rooftop evacuation as the communists close in. [...] Even Biden's implicit bribery offer sounds weak.  The Taliban already know how to deal drugs and ship illegals.  And they've already gotten hold of billions of dollars' worth of U.S. weapons.  Once they take Kabul, they'll have access to $9.5 billion in central bank reserves.  Bribes?  To people whose raison d'être is looting, pillaging, raping, marauding, trafficking, destroying, and dancing on the graves of their enemies?  It's kind of pathetic.

Biden urges investigation into 'illegal activity' that may be causing spike in gas prices.  President Joe Biden said Wednesday [8/11/2021] his administration is taking steps to crack down on illegal activity that might be contributing to a rise in gas prices.  Biden announced that the National Economic Council has asked the Federal Trade Commission to use "every available tool" to monitor the U.S. gasoline market and look for any illegal activity that might be causing gas prices to jump while the cost of a barrel of oil is going down.  "That's not what you'd expect in a competitive market," Biden said from the White House.  "I want to make sure that nothing stands in the way of oil price declines leading to lower prices for consumers."

The Editor says...
Ri-i-i-ight.  Nothing will stand in the way, except killing the Keystone XL pipeline on his first day in office, threatening Enbridge Line 3, perpetual ethanol mandates, Biden's ban on new oil and gas leasing and drilling on public lands,* and printing billions of dollars in U.S. currency that did not previously exist and aren't backed up by anything.

Report: A Stoned Hunter Biden Let Russian Drug Dealers Steal His Laptop.  "The smartest guy I know," as President Joe Biden called his son Hunter, was so stoned on a bender at a Las Vegas hotel that he passed out — and drug dealers stole his laptop.  The latest on the out-of-control drug addict and jet-setting "businessman," the Daily Mail reported, is on a shocking video.  It shows a naked Hunter baring his soul to a naked prostitute.  During that heart-to-heart talk, Hunter admitted that he had, once again, landed in hot water because of his addiction.  The drug dealers, whom the newspaper identified as Russian, have video of Biden's sexual monkeyshines, he said.  No wonder Sleepy Joe bragged about Hunter's cerebral powers.

Pillow talk video shows Hunter Biden saying he lost laptop in Vegas and feared blackmail.  Engaging in pillow talk, Hunter Biden shared a story about once losing a laptop during a summer romp in Las Vegas.  The president's adult son, nude and in bed with a naked woman, told his partner he feared the device was stolen and its videos of his sexual escapades could be used as blackmail, the Daily Mail reported on Wednesday [8/11/2021].  The video was taken from a laptop believed to have belonged to Biden, who has never definitively denied being its owner.  The Washington Examiner reached out to Biden's lawyer for comment on the new footage but did not receive a reply.

'Why is the FBI not doing anything?': Sean Hannity says feds are not properly investigating Hunter Biden's laptop.  Sean Hannity on Wednesday night [8/11/2021] demanded to know why arrests had not been made in the case of Hunter Biden — pointing out that the FBI have had possession of the president's son's computer 'for quite some time'.  Hunter's laptop, which was left at a Delaware repair shop, first became a political football in October 2020, and has provided a steady stream of damaging stories ever since.  On Wednesday obtained new video from the laptop, in which Hunter claimed Russians stole another one of his laptops for blackmail while he was close to overdosing in a Las Vegas hotel room.

Sean Hannity:  Why is FBI doing nothing about Hunter Biden?  News commentator Sean Hannity is questioning why the FBI is doing nothing about Hunter Biden after the Daily Mail in the United Kingdom revealed that it has obtained shocking video, from a laptop computer, showing a naked Biden with a prostitute.  And the president's son is fretting to her about another laptop that he reveals has similar explicit videos — and he suspects it was stolen by Russians.  Worry about blackmail and the fact his father, Joe Biden, was running for president, are key.  It's the latest stage of the scandal that just keeps on giving for President Joe Biden, as Hunter Biden has been documented, according to computer videos and emails, as involved in a wide range of questionable behaviors, up to and including his acceptance of money from controversial sources, and Joe Biden's involvement in Hunter's business deals to the point he let him ride on Air Force Two while vice president to pursue his money operations.

Video Surfaces of Hunter Biden Telling Prostitute The Russians Have His Laptop and Sex Tapes:  "They have videos of me doing crazy f***ing sex f***ing, you know".  Oh dear.  According to Hunter Biden the Russians have sex tapes of him doing "crazy [...] stuff" from drug fueled parties in Las Vegas where Russian drug dealers were partying with him.  As the story is told in his own words three Russian drug dealers were partying with him for several days with prostitutes, drugs and various debauchery; and when he woke up from passing out one night, all the recordings on his laptop were gone along with the laptop itself.  "They have videos of me doing this,' he said, referring to the filmed sex he just finished.

Another Inflation Record Gets Broken as Biden's Senility Hits Home.  I'd like to say that I had good news to report today regarding the inflation we were assured would be temporary by the powers that be.  Unfortunately, it's only accelerating, with middle-class families seeing the entirety of the past several years' wage growth wiped out over the course of a few months.  Today, the record for the year-over-year increase in producer cost inflation was set at 7.8% and there's no end in sight.  That breaks the previous record which was set in June of this year. [...] What was Joe Biden's response to this?  Well, he took to the teleprompter to let it be known that his "build back better" policies were actually lowering costs.  It's like he's on another planet.

Biden admin refuses to release visitor logs for Delaware trips, Psaki shrugs off transparency.  Despite his campaign vow to restore transparency if he was elected, President Joe Biden isn't about to reveal the names of those he has met with during numerous trips to his residences in Delaware, yet another broken promise to the American people.  The administration rejected the idea that the public has the right to know about people who have been guests of the POTUS at his main home in Wilmington and his vacation home in Rehoboth Beach; Biden has made 17 trips to Delaware in six months with two more expected to come next week.  White House press secretary Jen Psaki confirmed that Biden's visitor logs were off-limits during an exchange with a reporter during Wednesday's [8/11/2021] press briefing.  "The president's been to Delaware 17 times, it's soon going to be 18 and 19 times over the last six months, I want to know how visits from visitors and from family members with potential conflicts of interest are being treated for the purpose of White House visitor logs disclosure," asked Steven Nelson of the New York Post, also inquiring about Biden's son Hunter and his controversial art sales.

Hunter Biden is seen in unearthed footage telling a prostitute that Russian drug dealers stole another of his laptops for blackmail.  Hunter Biden claimed Russians stole another one of his laptops for blackmail while he was close to overdosing in a Las Vegas hotel room, can reveal.  The alleged incident would mean Hunter lost a total of three computers — the first abandoned at a Delaware computer store and the second seized by federal agents — each likely to hold sensitive information on President Joe Biden and the embarrassing pictures, videos and communications of his son.  The third laptop still appears to be missing — and was taken by Russian drug dealers after they partied with Hunter in Vegas, he told a prostitute in a conversation caught on camera.

Biden's light schedule under scrutiny, calls early lid before noon: 'Good thing nothing important is going on'.  Biden and the White House called an early lid before noon on Monday following a daily presidential briefing at 10 a.m. and the President then proceeded to continue to relax at his home in Delaware as if nothing important was going on.  "It is Monday, before noon, and President Biden/the White House have called a lid at 11:27 am," conservative commentator Katie Pavlich reported.  "The White House has called a travel pool lid at 11:27," the White House pool report stated.  White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki also wasn't scheduled to give a briefing on Monday afternoon as she usually does.  Biden reportedly spent all weekend at his Wilmington, Delaware home.

The Hypocrisy Variant.  [Barack H.] Obama is hardly the only Democrat carrier of the Hypocrisy Variant, of course.  President Biden is a kind of one-man superspreader.  During last year's presidential campaign, Biden routinely denounced then-President Trump as a lawless authoritarian who had consistently exceeded his constitutional authority.  This claim was never accompanied by convincing evidence, but it was parroted by the media.  It goes without saying that as soon as Biden was installed in the White House, he began issuing constitutionally suspect executive orders as fast as his lackeys could shove them under his nose.  His most lawless act thus far has been the renewal of the unconstitutional eviction moratorium.

Joe Biden Finally Emerges and Looks as Old and Confused as Ever.  I'm happy to report that Joe Biden has been located.  After going off the grid in Delaware since last Friday, with lids being called early and no availability or statements made, the president eventually returned to the White House today.  In doing so, he looked as old and doddering as ever.  [Tweet] [...] Biden just does not look well here.  His gait is labored and his back is hunched.  When the camera shows him from the side up by the White House, he appears almost woozy, with a stutter in his step.  This is a guy who has been laying up at the family home for the better part of five days.  Where's the energy?

Biden Calls an Early Lid Before Noon on a Monday.  President Joe Biden is at his home in Wilmington, Delaware today.  After receiving his daily presidential briefing at 10 a.m., the White House called a lid shortly afterward.  "The White House has called a travel pool lid at 11:27," the White House pool report states.  White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki isn't scheduled to give a briefing Monday afternoon [8/9/2021].

Former Trump Lawyer Jenna Ellis Joins Chorus Calling on GOP to Talk Up Biden Impeachment.  Jenna Ellis, a former attorney for the 2020 campaign of then-President Donald Trump, has become the latest leading conservative to call on Republicans to push for impeaching President Joe Biden for "multiple" constitutional cases of abuse.  In comments to Newsmax TV on Saturday, Ellis pointed to Biden's border policies, which including allowing tens of thousands of migrants into the country illegally, including many testing positive for COVID, while ignoring a Supreme Court order barring eviction moratoriums as reasons why Republicans should begin talking about impeachment even though they are currently in the minority in Congress.  Biden's immigration policies are particularly egregious, Ellis said.

Why aren't congressional Republicans impeaching Biden now?  We all know that the Democrats fight dirty; always have, always will.  The Republicans on the other hand just sit back and let them lie, cheat and steal as if it would be rude to call them out for their crimes.  They seem to delight in being known as the polite party.  As a result, the left is plowing them under with glee.  They impeached President Trump twice over nothing, less than nothing.  And now, as Biden is transforming the country and its demographics before the world's eyes by encouraging migrants from all over the world to illegally enter the U.S. over the southern border, the Republicans are as usual sitting back and doing nothing.  Never mind that while the administration demands American citizens be vaxxed and masked, these migrants endure no such mandates.  Some are spreading COVID and all are welcomed. [...] This is an obvious national security nightmare as thousands of those entering the country are criminals of the worst kinds.  If this is not an impeachable offense what is?

Tom Cotton:  Hunter Biden's Art 'Looks Like Coronavirus Got Sick with Bacteria'.  Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) told Breitbart News in an exclusive interview that Hunter Biden's artwork "looks like coronavirus got sick with a bacteria."  "Who wants to buy a Hunter Biden painting for $500, much less $500,000.  Some of the pictures of his art have been online; it looks like a coronavirus got sick with a bacteria," Cotton critiqued Hunter's art he intends to sell to "anonymous" buyers.  "Who's gonna pay for a first time artist, whose art is mediocre at best, thousands of dollars.  Say nothing of hundreds of thousands of dollars," Cotton continued.  "I know the White House claims that they're somehow going to have private auctions where no one knows who the other people [investors] are," Cotton explained.  But it is an "incredibly ill-advised idea, and they need to stop it now.  Hunter Biden can paint all he wants.  And when his dad is out of office, and there's no more risk of corruption, then he can sell his paintings."

Time to impeach Biden.  After having appointed a special counsel, or in place of it, under 5 U.S. Code §1212 — Powers and functions of the Office of Special Counsel, specifically under (a) (aB), (a3), Congress must act to impeach this president for high crimes and misdemeanors, gross mismanagement, violating the nation's laws, and endangering the public health and safety of citizens. [...] Congress must begin impeachment proceedings against President Joe Biden, V.P. Kamala Harris, Attorney General Merrick B. Garland, and his deputies, who likely have knowledge of the events that squashed investigations into the nation's murderous governors.  The investigations should include the governors, secretaries of state, and attorneys general of New York and Michigan.  Charges include, but are not limited to, obstruction of justice, abuse of authority, abuse of power, abuse of office, covering up criminal activity, conspiracy, and criminal self-dealing.  Considering allegations of potential collusion among these individuals and associates to cover up crimes that resulted in the deaths of citizens, provisions of the RICO Act for fraud and conspiracy to commit fraud shall be attached.  Investigative subpoenas to the staffs of these politicians must be prepared immediately to protect the integrity of the nation's justice and political systems, primarily its national security to protect America's citizens from harm.

Joe Biden Does Not Inspire Trust, and That's Proving Contagious for the Rest of Us.  Something city people notice when they move to a small town is the almost palpable trust local folks display toward each other.  Walk up to a stranger in a large city and they pull back, wary of your purpose.  None of that in small American communities where they suspect the best of others, even strangers, instead of expecting the worst.  The default position is trust.  That used to be the national default position, too. [...] But in so many disappointing ways, all that has changed drastically.  It's seriously corroding our national character.  And it's profoundly affecting the way we live, work, vote, entertain, talk to each other.  Or, rather, talk at each other now.  It's virtually impossible for anyone to mount effective leadership, when collectively few if any trust or believe that person, the institution, or many of the institutions around him.  Sixty years ago, polls showed nearly three-quarters of Americans believed public officials.  Today, it's under 20 percent.

9/11 Families to Biden:  Don't Come to Memorial Events Unless You Release Evidence of Saudi Involvement in Attacks.  As the twentieth anniversary of the 9/11 jihad attacks draws near, nearly 1,800 people who lost loved ones on that terrible day have made it clear that one person they don't want to see at anniversary events is Old Joe Biden.  And it's not, as you may have expected, because they don't want commemorations to descend into a platform for yet another one of Joe's embarrassing displays of his rapidly deteriorating mental state.  NBC News reported Friday that the Dotty Puppet is not welcome at events in New York City and Shanksville, Pennsylvania, where the plane on which courageous patriots foiled the jihadis went down, "unless he upholds his pledge to declassify U.S. government evidence that they believe may show a link between Saudi Arabian leaders and the attacks."

Joe Biden Falsely Claims, Two Times In A Row, That 350 Million Americans Have Been Fully Vaccinated.  Joe Biden wore a tan suit as he delivered remarks on the July jobs report on Friday [8/6/2021].  As usual Joe Biden struggled to read his own notes because he of his cognitive decline.  Biden said 350 million Americans are vaccinated — over 100% of the entire population of the US.  "We have uh roughly 350 million people vaccinated in the United States and billions around the world," Biden said.

All Biden Has To Do Is Stop Sniffing Kids and He Just Can't Do It.  Joe Biden held a ceremony in the White House Rose Garden on Thursday honoring the Capitol Police and the Metropolitan Police involved in protecting the Capitol on January 6.  [Tweet]  So Joe Biden is talking about the Constitution although just the other day he basically said he didn't [care] about it, announcing that his administration was issuing a new eviction moratorium order to buy time, knowing that it was likely to be found unconstitutional.  He swore an oath to uphold the Constitution but he just threw that right under the bus.  It was a strange gathering where only kids seemed to be wearing masks.  [Tweet]  But that wasn't the only thing that was strange.  Joe Biden was at it again with the kids and the hair sniffing.

Biden's Brain Completely Melts Down During January 6 Medal Announcement.  Joe Biden announced on Thursday [8/5/2021] that he would be signing legislation to award four Congressional Gold Medals over the Jan. 6 events at the Capitol building.  The legislation passed the Senate by unanimous consent on Tuesday after it had passed the House.  Four medals will be awarded, including one to the U.S. Capitol Police force and one to the Metropolitan Police Department.  There will be a medal for the Smithsonian Institution to display, as well as one for the Architect of the Capitol, according to Politico.  President Biden, flanked by Vice President Kamala Harris, framed the Capitol Riot in dire terms, comparing it to the darkest days America had experienced during the Civil War.

Is it possible that Biden's not as stupid as he appears?  [Scroll down]  Don Surber, however, says we're fooling ourselves, that Biden does indeed speak like a former stutterer (substituting words on the fly for words he can't say), and that we're playing into leftist hands: [...] Surber argues that Biden's bumbling persona means it will be hard to get voters to blame him for everything that happened on his watch.  They'll vote for the kind grandfather, not for the nation-destroyer.  He warns, "Defeating Biden in 2024 will take an extraordinary effort by Republicans.  That effort begins by viewing Biden as one of the best politicians in U.S. history."  Certainly Biden, even more effectively than Obama, has pushed through his agenda, helped by an utterly supportive government and a Pravda-esque media.  Talk about a transformational president.  So, is he the incompetent, creepy, incoherent old man or is he crazy like a fox?

Don't misunderestimate Biden.  If conservatives want to restore the constitutional republic in 2024, we will have to take Biden as serious as brain surgery because the task is difficult and one slip can cause doom. [...] Far from being his 25th Amendment successor, Kamala has become a convenient scapegoat.  Jill no doubt is leaking stories diminishing her competition because a beehive can have only one queen, as Rush Limbaugh said of Pelosi's gamesmanship with Hillary in the Obama era.  Defeating Biden in 2024 will take an extraordinary effort by Republicans.

Mark Levin says Biden should be removed from office.  Mark Levin says it is time to start talking about using impeachment or the 25th Amendment against Joe Biden to remove the "most disastrous president in modern American history" from office.  The conservative commentator, who commands a large following on the Right, took aim at Biden's handling of the border situation and the coronavirus pandemic, making the case to fellow Fox News host Sean Hannity on Wednesday that the Democratic commander in chief violated the Constitution.  After a series of insults, Levin said Biden has "the border wide open in violation of our immigration laws" and invoked the administration's eviction moratorium, which came this week despite a Supreme Court decision in June ruling an earlier eviction moratorium could only be extended by Congress.

Psaki dodges when asked about claims of 'abusive' Jill Biden staffer.  White House press secretary Jen Psaki on Tuesday deflected when asked about a report that alleged abusive behavior by a top aide to first lady Jill Biden, saying it's "hard to look into" the allegations because the claims were made anonymously.  Anthony Bernal was accused of a "mean streak" in a Politico report that alleged it's common knowledge that he makes colleagues cry while controlling access to the first lady.  "You know, it's hard to look into anonymously sourced reports.  I'm not aware of that being the intention," Psaki told reporters at her daily press briefing.  Bernal has a habit of "berating" people and trashes his "stupid" coworkers behind their backs, according to the report.

TV Media Desperately Conceal Biden's Gaffes from Viewers.  It's no secret the left-wing media abruptly lose interest in covering presidential gaffes when Democrats take the White House.  Well, they're doing it again: over the past few months liberal cable and broadcast news networks have utterly ignored a slew of mistakes and fumbles by President Biden.  At the G-7 Summit in June, Biden mistakenly referred to Syria as Libya three separate times during a speech.  Aides later confirmed that he had, in fact, meant Syria.  That same month, the President wrongly conflated the Tuskegee Airmen — a predominantly black contingent of World War II fighter pilots — with victims of the notorious Tuskegee syphilis experiment.  Both times, broadcast (ABC, CBS, and NBC) and cable (CNN and MSNBC) networks shrugged.  Last week brought yet another gaffe that these same channels ignored.

Dirty Rotten Bidens:  Hunter is the very apotheosis of the spoiled, useless princeling.  Even at the peak of his powers, Joe Biden was every dumb, oily, empty-suit politician on a sitcom.  But he was a hell of a lucky guy, too.  Even tiny little Delaware gets two senators, and all it took for him to be re-elected repeatedly from that peninsular speck was absolute fealty to the credit-card giants that basically own it.  And Hunter?  Hunter is the very apotheosis of the spoiled, useless princeling who can't stop getting into preposterous scrapes.  Of course he smoked Parmesan cheese.  Of course he had a fling with his dead brother's widow.  Separately, father and son are cartoonish enough.  But when you put them together, they're, well, slapstick clowns out of a picture like Dirty Rotten Scoundrels.  China, Barisma:  these shameless pay-for-play operations beat everything else going for sheer brazen sleaziness.  If the Democratic Party weren't itself so crooked, and if the CIA and FBI and mainstream media weren't so totally in the tank, these two would've been locked up long ago.

Biden Staffers Reportedly Sick Of Biden, Hammering Him Behind His Back.  According to a new report from Human Events Senior Editor Jack Posobiec, President Joe Biden's staffers are referring to him as "the nightmare on elm street."  [Tweet]  The news comes after Monmouth University came out with a devastating poll for Joe Biden.  According to the poll that was released on Thursday, President Joe Biden's approval rating has plunged 20 points since he first took office on January.

Weekly Biden Report Card:  Inflation up, vax goal still unreached, approval rating struggles.  This week's White House Report Card finds President Joe Biden in a bad spot.  COVID-19 is on the rise partly because he failed on his vaccine goal, inflation is on the rise in part due to his spending, the border remains a mess, and his Rasmussen Reports average approval rating is the lowest yet.  Conservative grader Jed Babbin gave Biden a D-, citing the problems the president and the nation are facing.  Democratic pollster John Zogby, however, graded a B-, though he too highlighted the hurdles facing the White House.

The banality of our destructors.  This is not another knock on Biden.  And it is not really another knock on Kamala.  While neither is a Rhodes scholar, they were smart enough to work the system to become the top man and top woman in the federal government.  As for Rhodes scholars, Rachel Maddow is one and she is about as sharp as a button.  (And as cute as a tack.)  The problem with the Biden administration is not the Biden part but with the administration part.  Jen Psaki is the face of the hacks and unemployable nephews who are running the show.  As press secretary, she has somehow managed to [anger]z the largest gathering of Marxist reporters since the Soviet Union fell.  Her performance is so poor that I wonder if that is the plan.

Biden Angrily Attempts to Reconcile His Own Contradictions on Mask Mandates.  Earlier today [7/29/2021], the installed occupant of the White House announced that all federal workers will be required to undergo vaccinations against COVID-19 or subject themselves to weekly tests to prove their health status.  Going a step further, the administration announced all private contractors for the federal government will be held to the same standard as federal employees.  [Video clip]  Joe Biden was visibly unsettled[,] straining to keep his focus in place[,] as he read from the carefully prepared script on the teleprompter.  During the questioning following the prepared comments Biden said, "If in fact you are unvaccinated, you present a problem to yourself, to your family and to those with whom you work".  These comments highlight his intent to apply as much federal pressure as possible to force vaccinations.

Joe Biden Loses It:  Calls Fox 'Fax,' Snaps at Peter Doocy, and Wrecks His Own Argument on Masks.  Joe Biden spoke briefly from the White House today [7/29/2021] to reporters to announce a vaccination-or-masking requirement for federal workers, along with other steps to spur vaccinations.  He said that civilian federal employees will be required to "attest" that they have been vaccinated.  If not, then they would have to submit to regular COVID-19 testing and masking guidelines, with restrictions on their travel.  The White House also said they would be encouraging localities to provide $100 to newly vaccinated individuals using leftover COVID-19 relief funds, according to information they released today.  They're going to restrict travel?  Prepare for more constitutional challenges.  And give people more free money?  That should go over well with those already vaccinated.  The White House is now making the White House staff and reporters wear masks even if they are fully vaccinated and that's what they're pushing generally for most of the country where the Delta variant is having "substantial" impact.

Biden snaps at Fox News reporter Peter Doocy following vaccination announcement.  President Biden and Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy had a heated exchange Thursday [7/29/2021] at the end of a speech in which Biden announced a vax-or-test-mask-and-distance requirement for millions of federal workers.  As Biden left the podium in the East Room of the White House, Doocy reminded the president that he had said, "if you are fully vaccinated, you no longer need to wear a mask."  "No I didn't say that," Biden responded.  "I said if you're fully vaccinated in an area where you do not have — well, let me clarify that — "  Doocy interrupted to clarify his question:  "In May, you made it sound like a vaccine was the ticket to losing the masks forever."  "That was true at the time!" a visibly agitated president shot back.

Joe Biden's Brain Breaks Again, and Then It Gets Really Bad.  Joe Biden was at a virtual Zoom meeting from the White House with governors in regard to wildfires.  His brain broke again while he was talking about wildfires and Delaware.  "You know, I come from the state of Delaware," Biden said.  "We had more acreage burn last year than the state of Delaware and Maryland combined.  COMBINED."  Wait, what?  How does that make any sense?  Of course, it doesn't.  I think that he was trying to talk about how wildfires in the United States have burned nearly three million acres so far this year — that's the size of Delaware and Rhode Island combined.  But he didn't seem to be able to say it coherently.  But it gets worse.  At some point during the meeting, Kamala Harris appears to have taken over, so you can hear her droning on in the background of this clip.  Biden sits there, looking vacant.  But that isn't the focal point of the video.  The focus is that Biden receives a note from an aide, reads it, then wipes something off his chin and appears to eat it.  Yikes.

Something on your chin
Babysitting Joe Biden.  Joe Biden's descent into dementia continues apace.  Earlier today he was on a public Zoom conference when an aide stepped into the picture to hand him a note:  [Photo]  What followed was frankly disgusting, and I prefer not to write about it. [...] The absurd pretense on the part of the Democratic Party and its press that Joe Biden is fit to discharge the duties of his office is endangering our country.

Now There's Absolutely No Doubt It's Over for Joe Biden.  The trend among likely voters in the Daily Presidential Tracking Poll is clear.  It appears the flip-flop on CDC mask guidance is rubbing Americans the wrong way.  For the last three days, total disapproval has been over 50%, and the approval index between those who strongly approve and strongly disapprove has been -13, -16, and -15.  These ratings accompanied announcements about requiring vaccines at the Veteran's Administration and other federal agencies.  This poll is a valuable tool to detect trends because it uses a consistent methodology to assess the feelings of likely voters.  Rasmussen picked up the daily presidential poll when Gallup abandoned it during the Obama administration.  Biden's approval rating has not been above water since February 15, 2021, when it was at 53%.

Viral video:  Biden's unhealthy love for his son.  It's pretty clear that Joe Biden loves Hunter.  On the one hand, he seems to have used him which, of course, is not loving.  While Beau Biden got the legitimate career (perhaps because he was not a drug addict), it was Hunter who became Biden's bag man.  Hunter traveled hither and yon with Dad, picking up massive "business" contracts along the way, all for projects that he was incapable of accomplishing, and not just because he was a drug addict.  Drug addiction or not, there was nothing about Hunter's abilities or experience that qualified him to sit on Burisma's board.  On the other hand, putting aside Hunter's usefulness to Daddy Biden, it's clear from the many affectionate messages from Joe to Hunter that were found on the hard drive that Joe loves Hunter and isn't shy about showing it.  Indeed, I think part of Hunter's problem throughout his life has been that Joe was incapable of giving him the boundaries children need.

'Invest in Joe': How Hunter Biden's Financial Deals Extend Beyond Ukraine.  When Hunter Biden was on the board of the Ukrainian oil and gas company Burisma, he was included on an official government email in 2016 to his father, then-Vice President Joe Biden, regarding a phone call with Ukraine's leader at the time, according to a recent discovery reported in the New York Post.  But as detailed in my 2020 book "Abuse of Power," the various business dealings of now-President Joe Biden's son were not limited to the Ukrainian energy company.  Hunter Biden's now-infamous laptop, which came to the public's attention last year, contains 10 email messages from May and June of 2016 from a staffer for Biden, sent to the then-vice president and copied to Hunter.

Biden crowd in PA with no masks
Biden Administration and Democrats Promote New Mask Mandate, Then This Happens.  The Biden Administration, Nancy Pelosi, the CDC and scientific establishment along with the Democrat machine writ large, have re-instituted a new indoor national mask mandate that everyone is expected to abide by.  However, check out Joe Biden today in Pennsylvania.  Notice anything missing?  [Photo]  Not a mask in sight; which highlights the reality — Democrats do not even believe their own message.  It's not really hypocrisy because they know the mask narrative is a fraud.  They know their mask narrative is a purposeful ruse.  Their actual behavior is a physical representation of the lie they know they are selling.

Biden's latest whopper:  "I used to drive an 18-wheeler truck, man." WH staff scrambles to cover for him.  [Scroll down]  Biden looked slightly dazed and generally confused in the video clips I watched of his visit to the Mack Truck factory.  His small talk to workers was forced and awkward.  One comment, in particular, captured the attention of some observers.  Biden claimed to have driven 18-wheeler trucks in his earlier life.  Remember, this guy has been in elected office and a professional politician for almost fifty years.  He went to Washington, D.C. as a U.S. senator at the age of 29.  When did he drive a big rig?

Biden raises eyebrows with claim he 'used to drive' 18-wheeler truck.  Forty-eight-year political veteran President Biden raised eyebrows on Wednesday [7/28/2021] when he claimed to have driven an 18-wheeler truck — a claim the White House struggled to defend.  Biden was visiting a Mack Truck facility in Pennsylvania when he made the claim to have driven the massive trucks before, which require a special kind of license.  "I used to drive an 18-wheeler, man," Biden said on Wednesday in a video posted to Twitter.  "I got to."  There is scant evidence that Biden has ever driven an 18-wheeler truck.

Biden Motorcade Greeted by Jeers and Middle Finger Salutes Arriving in Pennsylvania, VIDEO.  The people of Pennsylvania showed up to greet the installed occupant of the White House, Joe Biden, upon his arrival in Pennsylvania — which he calls his home state.  The illegitimate office holder was scheduled to speak at Mack Truck Plant in Macungie, Pennsylvania.  Unfortunately for those who are attempting to manage the White House, the jeers, boos and middle finger salutes from the crowd was not exactly what they were looking for.  [Video clip]

Biden Mistakes Trump For Obama During Speech, Claims He Was Trump's VP.  President Joe Biden continues to be a total embarrassment for the United States of America.  During a speech on Wednesday [7/28/2021] in Allentown, Pennsylvania, the president gave a speech on American manufacturing.  At one point during the speech, Biden confused former Presidents Barack Obama and Donald Trump when talking about the 2009 recession.  Biden then claimed that his slip, which many think is due to mental decline or dementia, was just a "freudian slip."  How do you forget who you were in office with for 8 years?

Biden's cognitive dysfunction takes front and center.  Everybody knows President Biden has a speaking problem.  It used to be one rooted in gaffes.  "Oh, that's just Joe" was the standard line of explanation from his defenders on occasions that ranged from his blurting of racial insensitivities to his characterization of high I.Q. in the face of outed serial plagiarism.  Oh, that's just Joe.  His gaffes have turned a more serious corner.  By all appearances, "just Joe" is a fruitcake.  People are definitely noticing.  "There's something seriously going on with this man right now," said Rep. Ronny Jackson, Texas Republican and former White House physician for both former Presidents Donald Trump and Barack Obama, in a recent interview on Fox News with host Sean Hannity.  "And, you know, I think that he's either going to resign, or they're going to convince him to resign from office at some point in the near future for medical issues, or they're going to have to use the 25th Amendment to get rid of this man right now."

Hunter Biden's 'New Career' Is Selling Access To His Dad, Just Like His Last Job.  CNN and MSNBC will be running live coverage for days of the Liz Cheney Show (sometimes referred to as the House select committee hearings on Jan. 6) but can we talk just for a little bit about Hunter Biden openly using access to his president dad for financial gain?  It's obvious that's what's happening, just as it was obviously happening when Hunter was curiously appointed to serve on the board of a seedy energy company in Ukraine when his dad was in the White House as vice president.  And yet the national media act like this is nothing more than a matter of bad optics, a brief lapse in judgement that threatens to trip President Biden for a moment before he presses on.  That's not what this is.  The paintings by Hunter Biden — a name that has henceforth never been worth more on a piece of art than mine — will reportedly sell for up to [a half-million dollars] a piece.  A major story in the Washington Post three weeks ago revealed that White House officials were working with Hunter's dealer (His art dealer, a distinction we unfortunately have to make), supposedly in the name of transparency.

The Editor says...
If Hunter Biden is peddling access, I doubt if that access is to Joe Biden himself.  Illicit buyers are more likely to pay for access to the people who make Joe's decisions for him.

Amid Hunter Biden art scandal, GOP rep introduces transparency bill targeting POTUS family members.  Rep. Michael Waltz, R-Fla., is set to introduce a bill aimed at having the president and vice president disclose their non-dependent children's finances as President Biden's son prepares to attend art shows where he could meet potential buyers of his paintings.  Fox News exclusively obtained Waltz's bill, the Preventing Anonymous Income by Necessitating Transparency of Executive Relatives (PAINTER) Act, which will require that presidents and vice presidents provide financial disclosures for all of their non-dependent children.  A requirement already exists under the Ethics in Government Act for spouses and dependent children of presidents to disclose their finances.

Art dealer for Hunter Biden said he wants to be the 'lead guy in China,' circa 2015.  The art dealer who is handling Hunter Biden's work claimed in 2015 that he wanted to be the "lead guy in China," a development that could pose new problems for the administration as it is likely to generate new criticisms about undue foreign influence from a competitor nation.  The dealer, Georges Berges, has discussed dealing with artists and buyers in China in the past, so handling Hunter Biden now that his father is president is likely to pose major ethics issues, especially since the White House is not being transparent regarding who is purchasing the artwork.

It can't happen here?  It is happening here!  [Scroll down]  Biden cannot utter a coherent sentence.  He is the face of a corrupt band of radicals who, along with Obama, vowed to "transform America."  He was fraudulently installed and has little actual personal support.  The Trump presidency rendered the left well and truly deranged, without any moral compunctions going forward.

Joe Biden set up private email accounts using fake names from which he would send and receive government correspondence, Hunter Biden's laptop reveals.  Joe Biden used various private email addresses from which he would sometimes send, receive and forward government correspondence according to emails found on Hunter Biden's laptop.  The concerns over the use of a private e-mail server could represent a conflict of interest and the services are also more prone to hacking than secured government accounts.  Biden is said to have used various pseudonyms including 'Robin Ware,' 'Robert L. Peters' and 'JRB ware'.

Joe Biden sure is friendly with China.  I wonder why.
Biden DOJ Drops Charges Against China Military Members Accused of Lying to Get Jobs at U.S. Universities.  The Department of Justice (DOJ) has dropped charges against five members of the Chinese military whom federal prosecutors previously accused of lying to obtain visas to get jobs and a doctoral spot at United States universities.  Late last week, prosecutors wrote in a court brief that they would be dropping their criminal cases against China military members Juan Tang, Chen Song, Kaikai Zhao, and Guan Lei — all of whom had been accused of fraudulently obtaining visas to secure roles at U.S. universities in California and Indiana.

Ron Johnson on Hunter Biden Investigation: 'Agencies Are Covering for the Bidens'.  On this week's broadcast of FNC's "Sunday Morning Futures," [7/25/2021] Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) accused government agency of covering for the Biden family in denying congressional requests for information on investigations pertaining to President Joe Biden's son, Hunter Biden.  Johnson said there was a similar trend in dealing with the Centers for Disease Control.  "So, the Secret Service is not being — and so we have asked for — requested for information on that because they have no records of it," he said.  "So, once again, we subpoenaed FBI Director Wray.  He slow-walked our request.  We basically didn't get squat.  Now Secret Service, they gave us the initial records.  Past that point, they haven't given us squat.  What workers they have given are highly redacted.  So these agencies are covering for the Bidens.  They have always been covering for them.  Even though he supposedly ended Secret Service protection, they still apparently provided it as well, but off the books.  Who knows what's happening?  These agencies are not being forthright.  They're not being transparent.  And, quite honestly, Congress is losing its oversight capability."

Who are the two biggest scoundrels among Democrats?  I don't know.  That covers a lot of territory.  But if we limit the inquiry to very famous Democrats, the answer might be Andrew Cuomo and Hunter Biden.  They have much in common.  Both are sons of very famous fathers.  Neither, in all likelihood, would have become prominent but for what their fathers accomplished.  That's certainly the case with Hunter Biden.  Both are the subject of sex scandals, albeit of somewhat different sorts.  Andrew Cuomo has been accused of sexual harassment by several women who worked in his administration.  Hunter Biden apparently was a fixture in the VIP lounges of various D.C. "gentlemen's clubs" where, allegedly, he did crack cocaine with strippers.  One stripper says he fathered her child.  And both Cuomo and Biden are under federal investigation.

Joe Biden 'has to be taken out of circulation' after 'rambling about men on the moon'.  Sky News host Alan Jones says Joe Biden "has to be taken out of circulation" after a CNN Town Hall filled with blunders, including an "incoherent rambling about men on the moon and aliens".  Mr Jones said President Biden remained "unchallenged in his rambling" because "CNN are mouthpieces for Biden".  "This bloke has to be taken out of circulation," Mr Jones said.  "This bloke, Joe Biden, belongs in a home and that home is not the White House."  [Video clip]

Joe Biden Was Sending Sensitive State Department "Insider Intelligence" To His Son Hunter Biden Via Private Email Account.  According to a new report from John Solomon, Founder, CEO and Editor in Chief at Just the News, then Vice President Joe Biden used a private email address ( to send government information to his son Hunter during the years of the Obama Administration.  This is much like actions taken by Hillary Clinton when she had been found to be using a private email account as Secretary of State, although her emails were specifically marked classified in some instances.  The revelation was highlighted in an episode on Newsmax, on the show "Greg Kelley Reports" where Solomon goes into the details of the emails and how they were obtained including the certainty of their owner:  [Video clip]

Veep Joe Biden skirted 'no see' mail law with private accounts.  As vice president, Joe Biden kept a variety of private e-mail addresses from which he would sometimes forward and receive government correspondence, Hunter Biden's laptop shows.  "Robin Ware," "Robert L. Peters" and "JRB ware" were three such pseudonyms on e-mails that mixed official and family business.  In a four-week period in 2016, for instance, John Flynn, who worked in the Office of the Vice President, sent Joe his official daily schedule to his private e-mail address and copied Hunter.  There were 10 such e-mails copied to Hunter between May 18 and June 15, 2016.  In one e-mail from Flynn to Joe, a k a Robert Peters, on May 26, 2016, and copied to Hunter, the schedule includes "8.45am prep for 9am phonecall with Pres Poroshenko."

'The experts say we know that this virus is, in fact, uh, um, uh, it's going to be, or excuse me': Biden loses his thoughts.  Joe Biden overinflated the efficiency of vaccines, especially against the Delta variant, during his gaffe-filled town hall on Wednesday where he claimed the jab will prevent Americans from contracting coronavirus.  'We're not in the position where we think that any virus, including the Delta virus, which is much more transmissible and more deadly in terms of unvaccinated people, the — the various shots that people are getting now cover that,' Biden said during a CNN town hall in Cincinnati, Ohio on Wednesday [7/21/2021].  'You're OK,' he assured.  'You're not going to — you're not going to get COVID if you have these vaccinations.'

Ex-Obama Doctor Predicts Biden To Resign Or Face 25th Amend: 'A National Security Issue At This Point'.  Former White House physician Ronny Jackson, who served in the role under both Presidents Obama and Trump, told Fox News on Thursday night [7/22/2021] that he believes that President Joe Biden will be forced to resign or will face the 25th Amendment over issues related to his fitness for office.  Jackson, who now represents Texas' 13th Congressional District, told Fox News that he has been saying for a while that "something's going on here."  "And I've been saying that it's only going to get worse, and guess what?  We're watching that happen right before our eyes right now," Jackson said.  "And I'm at the point right now where, you know, I went from, you know, telling people, we should be concerned about what might potentially be going on, to now saying, hey, what is happening right now?"

Biden must release his secret cognitive tests.  Joe Biden told a half-empty town hall meeting sponsored by CNN this week that if you get the vaccine then you won't get COVID, that he plans to ban both handguns and rifles, and that a small restaurant owner struggling to hire workers who would rather be paid COVID dollars not to work should simply increase the wages he pays.  These lies and absurdities are of course not the first, and are only one facet of a man who is weirdly and wildly declining — from an already low base. [...] Which brings us to Biden's recent physical and mental stumbles.  He has repeatedly referred to his vice president as "President." He referred to his Secretary of Defense as "senator" and later that same week forgot his name entirely.  He hemmed and hawed and finally was reduced to calling him, "the guy who runs the outfit over there." He gestured as if in the direction of the Pentagon while actually gesturing in a different direction.  He said 120 million Americans have died of COVID. The actual number at that time was 120 thousand.  He told the story of President Franklin Roosevelt going on TV to talk about the stock market crash.  Except Roosevelt wasn't president when the market crashed and TV hadn't been invented.

The Mark of Klain.  On August 8 the White House chief of staff, Ron Klain, turns 60 years old. [...] Klain is the most powerful chief of staff in recent memory, the beating heart of Joe Biden's White House, a man whose portfolio is so wide-ranging and whose boss is so (let's face it) odd that Republicans on Capitol Hill refer to him as "Prime Minister Klain."  Like most Washingtonians, he is a well-degreed workaholic, a graduate of Georgetown and Harvard Law School who has spent decades rotating from positions in Democratic administrations to lucrative gigs at the intersection of law, technology, and finance.

Jill Biden Looks Like Cruella De Vil At The 2021 Olympics Opening Ceremony.  First lady Jill Biden appeared at the Tokyo Olympics opening ceremony on Friday [7/23/2021], wearing a mask as she joined just a handful of world leaders at the stadium closed to the public over the COVID-19 pandemic.  Biden, 70, wore a blue mask to go along with her black-and-white polka dot dress and long pearl necklace as she represented the US in her first solo international trip as first lady.  She could be seen standing and clapping in the almost empty stands while the United States team entered the 68,000-seat stadium.

Communist China Tech Firm Huawei Hires Democrat Lobbyist Tony Podesta For Biden Connections.  Democrat lobbyist Tony Podesta is joining Huawei, a Chinese firm known for kowtowing to nations adversarial to the U.S. and maintaining close relations with the Chinese Communist Party, as a consultant to help the tech giant push an agenda on the Biden administration.  According to a report in Politico, Podesta will use his experience and influence in Washington to convince the White House and other U.S. policymakers to lend a listening ear to Huawei's goals, despite the company's track record in facilitating surveillance states.  Podesta's former company previously represented the China-United States Exchange Foundation, a CCP-linked company that tried to fund events in the U.S.  Other nations have taken a cautious approach when choosing whether to engage with Huawei.  Last summer, the United Kingdom banned the telecom company from building the country's 5G network infrastructure.  Podesta, however, doesn't seem to mind the company's checkered past and criticisms from the Trump administration.

The Editor says...
Hardly anyone outside of Washington DC really knows who makes Joe Biden's decisions for him.  It is possible that Tony Podesta has a lot of influence with the person or people who make those decisions, and the Huawei people know the value of that influence.

Joe Biden Babbles Incoherently During CNN Town Hall Train Wreck.  Joe Biden repeatedly struggled to collect his thoughts during a CNN town hall event Wednesday night as he attempted he to address a number of important issues with host Don Lemon.  Over and over, Biden babbled incoherently as Lemon politely nodded his head as if in agreement with Biden's inscrutable gibberish.  Biden's town hall took place in a half-filled auditorium at Mount St.  Joseph University in Cincinnati, Ohio.  [Tweets]  When asked about when children under 12 will be eligible to be vaccinated against COVID-19, Biden delivered a mind-boggling word salad in response.  "That's underway, just like the other question that's illogical, and I've heard you speak about it because you always — I'm not being solicitous — but you're always straight-up about what you're doing, Biden told Lemon, who mumbled something inaudible in response.

Joe Biden Had the Opportunity to Denounce 'Defund the Police.' But He Says Something Disturbing and Unhinged Instead.  CBS News captured video of this brief but very bizarre and disturbing exchange between Joe Biden and a reporter.  The reporter asks Biden if any Democrats support defunding the police, after he insisted that none do.  Which is an obvious lie, since Democrats did defund police in many cities and many Democrats in Congress continue to support defunding the police.  [Video clip]  Biden's response is attracting attention.  A savvy pol who had his wits about him would use the opportunity to distance himself from the defund radicals whose policies are contributing to spiking murder rates across the country — actually killing people — and present himself as a sensible moderate who has public safety in mind.  Instead, Biden leans toward the reporter and says "Are there people in the Republican Party who think we're sucking the blood out of kids?"

Paltry Crowd Gathers to See Joe Biden Campaign For Terry McAuliffe in Arlington, Virginia.  Joe Biden will be in Arlington Friday evening to campaign for Virginia Democrat Governor hopeful Terry McAuliffe.  Biden supposedly won Virginia by 10 points in 2020 against Trump (after a 300,000 vote spike out of nowhere) but he can't even draw a decent-sized crowd.  According to the WaPo reporter on the scene, the vibe at the McAuliffe rally is much like a "pre-pandemic event[.]"  So what's the excuse for such a small crowd if Biden is the most popular president ever?

Biden's CNN townhall dumpster fire: flirty, flighty and frazzled.  President Joe Biden spoke to a half-empty auditorium in Ohio on Wednesday for a CNN town hall where he leered over and flirted with a newlywed bride and incoherently rambled on about "a man on the moon" and "aliens" in connection to getting vaccinated against COVID-19.  Don Lemon was the host and ironically referred to the president as "the big guy" at the town hall.  Biden stammered through most of the event and had a problem finishing sentences once again.  The third question during the town hall came from a newlywed couple who asked about getting vaccinations in their community and it quickly turned awkward.

So much for anonymity.
Hunter Biden will reportedly meet with prospective buyers of his art.  First son Hunter Biden is expected to meet with prospective buyers at shows carrying his artwork later this year in New York and Los Angeles, raising new ethical concerns about influence peddling tied to the sales, according to a report.  President Biden's son is expected to appear at during a private affair in Los Angeles and a larger show in the Big Apple, Georges Berges Gallery spokeswoman Robin Davis told CBS News.  "He's looking forward to it.  It is like someone debuting in the world.  And of course he will be there," Davis said.  Davis said the potential buyers "will be vetted ... so whomever is appropriate will be attending."  The arrangement appears to conflict with a promise from the White House that the identities of the potential buyers would be kept secret.

I have no doubt that the buyers' identities will be kept secret — from us.

Joe Biden Arranges Words Into Odd Cringe-worthy Sequence During Heavily Structured CNN Townhall Event.  What do you call it when you combine cringe with awkward discomfort?  Whatever it is, this is full of it.  The White House coordinated with CNN to put Joe Biden on stage so that the administration could convey a message of importance to CNN viewers.  The event was so terribly horrible it's doubtful the person in the White House is still employed.  [Video clip]

CNN fact check nails Biden on numerous lies and exaggerations during town hall event.  CNN fact-checked President Joe Biden on numerous statements he made during a town hall event on their own network and found him wanting.  Hosted by CNN host Don Lemon, the president responded to questions from the audience at the town hall event Wednesday [7/21/2021] in Cincinnati, Ohio.  On Thursday, CNN refuted many of the claims Biden made during the event.  [For example,] Biden made contradictory statements about the efficacy of vaccination against the coronavirus event.  "If you're vaccinated, you're not going to be hospitalized, you're not going to be in the ICU unit and you're not going to die," said Biden at one point.  Later, he added that even if vaccinated people were to become infected with the virus that they were "not likely to get sick."  In a third statement, he assured the audience that "you're not going to get COVID if you have these vaccinations."

Biden Freaks People Out With Talk About Republicans Who Believe 'We're Sucking the Blood Out of Kids'.  Joe Biden doubled down on his bizarre comments about 'sucking the blood' out of children while trying to deflect from the Democrats' undeniable record of supporting 'Defund the Police.'  Now that the obviously ridiculous position has backfired for the Democrats, Biden has a convenient scapegoat:  Q Anon.  Biden has been harping on this fringiest of fringe conspiracy theorists, who many believe is driven by "Blue Anon" bot farms attempting to frame the Democrats' critics as unhinged conspiracy theorists.  In any event, Biden unleashed a bizarre outburst about Republicans who purportedly believe the Democrats are literally 'bloodsuckers.'

Fact check: Biden makes false claims about Covid-19, auto prices and other subjects at CNN town hall.  President Joe Biden participated Wednesday [7/21/2021] in the second CNN town hall of his presidency, taking questions from anchor Don Lemon and local residents in Cincinnati.  As he did at his February town hall, Biden made a number of false or misleading claims.  We haven't been able to look into every single thing he said Wednesday night, but here is a rundown on some of his remarks. [...]

Biden says he asks Secret Service to keep out of his room at breakfast time because he isn't dressed.  President Joe Biden said he asks Secret Service agents to keep out of his bedroom at breakfast time because he hasn't dressed yet.  Biden gave some insight into his morning routine at a CNN town hall on Wednesday [7/21/2021].  He said he liked to start his days wearing his robe and eating breakfast undisturbed by his protection detail.  Secret Service agents usually stay close to the president as he moves around the White House, where he lives with his wife, Jill.  Asked by CNN's Don Lemon what life behind the scenes was like at the White House, Biden said the Secret Service agents who protect him are "wonderful."  But he said he liked to break with certain protocols in order to live a more normal life.  "Because things are so crazy out there, it is very hard to get comfortable, like I would ordinarily be," Biden told Lemon.

The Editor says...
One would think that a man who accepted the results of a stolen election would keep quiet about how tough his life is.  If the presidential palace isn't good enough for you, and you want to get comfortable, you may resign at any time.  But if you do, you can expect your next stop to be a nursing home with a "memory care" wing.  As soon as you are no longer useful to the baby-killing Democrats, you'll be unceremoniously discarded, and your influence won't be worth peddling.

Biden drifts off answering a question during CNN's town hall, appears to listen to earpiece to get out of incoherent ramble.  We've all seen this before, as has every leader of every country in the world.  A sitting president of the United States cannot put together a coherent answer to a simple question.  He pauses, appears puzzled, and then comes up with a string of words that appear to have entered his brain via an earpiece.  If the stakes weren't so high, it would be comic.  Wednesday saw the president of the United States engage in a town hall-format discussion, on friendly territory, with Don Lemon moderating on CNN.  It must have been one of those "good days" that dementia-sufferers sometime enjoy — in Biden's case, meaning no "lid" was called, removing the leader of the free world from public scrutiny.  ("Calling a lid" is an unprecedented admission that the POTUS is not in full command of his mental faculties and would have Democrats demanding that the 25th Amendment be invoked if a Republican were in office.  But Republicans are far too polite and far too scared of the media to make an issue of it with Biden.)

Clip Of Biden Goes Viral From CNN Town Hall Event.  A clip of President Joe Biden went viral on Wednesday night that focused on how Biden responded to a question during a CNN town hall event.  [Lengthy transcript of Biden's blithering omitted for brevity]  The clip garnered widespread attention with many raising questions about Biden in response.  "I don't know about you but I'm thrilled this is the guy in charge of the free world.  We should all sleep sound at night," Donald Trump Jr. said.  "Hey at least there's no mean tweets... mostly because this guy wouldn't be capable of a tweet or even a complete thought."  The RNC Research team highlighted the clip, saying that "Biden struggles to keep his thoughts straight when talking about vaccines."  Political strategist Caleb Hull tweeted:  "This guy is our president and can't even complete a sentence."

Bumbling Mess:  Biden Stumbles Over His Words for a Full 40 Seconds During CNN Town Hall.  Former Vice President Joe Biden is having a rough go of it during his fake news town hall on CNN.  During the shocking clip below, it's clear that he's struggling to even string together words for form sentences.  This is getting BAD.  While answering a question about vaccines, Biden spewed word salad for a full 40 seconds while the crowd sat there in stunned silence.  "Just like the other question that's illogical... and, I've heard you speak about it, because you alway-, I'm not being solicitous, but you're always straight up about what you're doing.  The question is whether or not we should be in a position where, um, you uh, why can't the... the... the experts say, we know that this virus is in fact, uh um, it's going to be, excuse me, we we know why all the drugs are approved but permanently approved," Biden said.

The Editor says...
If you're saying to yourself, "Wow, I could do better than that!  Maybe I should run for President," hold the phone.  Joe Biden was installed as President, without a lot of campaigning, without enthusiastic crowds, and without a majority of the legitimate votes.  The election was stolen and handed to Biden, who in turn has apparently agreed to sign whatever is placed before him.  Don't waste any time thinking you could be a better president.  Biden is a mere placeholder.  He is a puppet.  A pawn.  He is a tool that's rapidly wearing out.  Do not envy him.

CNN's Biden Town Hall Went Exactly the Way You Expected.  On Wednesday night [7/21/2021], President Biden was granted the second town hall of his presidency (with the first in February and the third in the last year) by his adoring fanboys and girls at CNN and, not surprisingly, the Jeffrey Zucker-led network made sure that the 80-minute event was little more than a foot-massage (or smelling of the hair since that suits his fancy).  Along with an eight-to-three split in Democrat to Republican audience questioners, CNN Tonight host Don Lemon repeatedly inserted himself in trying to help Biden along, press him from the left, and offer only one real challenging moment.  [Video clip]  The most noteworthy audience question and Lemon interjection came with the eighth question as Cory Marcum (who was likely a Democrat, though Lemon never gave him a label) drew applause when asked if it was "logical to get rid of the filibuster so we can protect our democracy and secure the right to vote" in the face of the GOP "efforts to restrict voting rights."  The far-left CNN host took this opening and ran with it, [...]

Psaki Spreads a Bunch of Baloney About 'System' Dealing With Hunter.  As I reported back in June, Hunter Biden had taken up a new racket to make a lot of anonymous money.  He was going to be doing "art" which unidentified people were going to pay for at prices that no new untested artist not named Biden would ever get, with estimates up to $500,000.  Now I'm sure, given it's Hunter, there's no way it would be an avenue for money laundering, bribery, or other influence peddling, right?  I mean just because Joe lied about meeting with Hunter's business associates in the past and met with them in the White House and the vice president's residence doesn't mean he would do it again, right?  But then, the White House really stepped in it.  In general, whenever one mentions the sketchy things Hunter does, the Democratic formulaic response is "well, he's not in the White House."  That's true.  But when the White House actually involves itself in Hunter's deals, then yes, they make themselves involved.  When he involves Joe, they are involved.

Biden speaks to half-empty room at CNN town hall.  President Biden on Wednesday [7/21/2021] spoke to a half-empty auditorium while doing a live CNN town hall event in Ohio.  The more than dozen empty rows weren't apparent to television viewers thanks to flattering shots that appeared to show a full, non-distanced crowd packing the front rows — in a striking visual display of normalcy after more than a year of COVID-19 restrictions.  But members of the traveling White House press pool shared photos from the back of the room, revealing that, in fact, the venue was far from packed at Mount St.  Joseph University in Cincinnati.  Bloomberg News reporter Jennifer Epstein, who traveled with Biden as a representative of wire services, tweeted an image of "[w]hat the Biden CNN town hall looks like from the back of the auditorium."

Joe Biden and his administration are attacking us, and they're not even being secretive about it.  Rather than trying to subvert our truth-seeking journalism surreptitiously, the Biden White House is announcing their attacks as if it's a point of pride.  In fact, the White House is so proud of its anti-conservative offensive that Joe Biden's communications director Kate Bedingfield went on MSNBC this week to directly identify their target.  "There are conservative news outlets who are creating irresponsible content that's sharing misinformation about the virus," she said.  Bedingfield didn't say that conservative news outlets were lying or publishing falsehoods because we aren't.  Instead, she said our content is "irresponsible" because we dare to point out the contradictions, obfuscation, and misdirection presented by Dr. Fauci and other "experts" who expect Americans to follow them blindly and without question.  To the Biden White House, questioning their party line and reporting the whole story in order to let our readers make up their own minds is irresponsible.

Biden Does More to Help Russia Than Trump Ever Did in 4 Years as He Clears Way for Nord Stream 2 Pipeline.  President Joe Biden just paved the way for the isolation of former Soviet states by greenlighting Russia's controversial Nord Stream 2 natural gas pipeline that aims to bypass Ukraine in favor of a direct route to Germany through the Baltic Sea.  The Obama and Trump administrations each opposed the pipeline's construction, considering, as The Wall Street Journal noted, that the pipeline would allow the Kremlin to "increase European dependence on its natural gas, then use it to blackmail U.S. allies."  Still, the Biden administration is caving, as expected.

Joe Biden just gave Vladimir Putin a multibillion-dollar gift.  Congressional hearings are all but intentionally designed to be uninteresting, but anyone who tuned into the Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing this Tuesday [7/20/2021] would have seen something remarkable.  I asked Undersecretary of State Victoria Nuland if she agreed that allowing Russian President Vladimir Putin to complete his Nord Stream 2 pipeline to Germany would be "a disaster for American national security," that it would make our European allies subject to economic and energy blackmail from Russia, and that it would empower Putin to carry out exactly that blackmail.  She tersely answered, "I do, senator."  A few hours later the Biden administration announced it had inked a deal to allow Putin to complete his Nord Stream 2 pipeline.  This decision is a total surrender to Putin.  It is a multibillion-dollar gift that will keep on giving in perpetuity at the expense of the United States and our allies.  It is a generational geopolitical mistake.

Biden Gives [an] Answer So Unintelligible It Sounds Like He's Speaking a Foreign Language.  President Joe Biden's brain failed him again Wednesday, this time as he spoke to CNN's Don Lemon during a scheduled town hall at Mount St.  Joseph University in Cincinnati.  As he so often does these days, the 78-year-old slipped into utter nonsense when speaking publicly.  On this issue of whether 12-year-old children should receive the COVID vaccine, Biden fell into a verbal hole that took him the better part of a minute to climb out of.  [Several video clips]  Despite those head-scratching moments, none matched Biden's 40 seconds of pure word salad about children and vaccines.  It isn't even clear if he knew where he was briefly on Wednesday.  It's terrifying.

Republicans slam Biden's 'total surrender' to Russia by dropping opposition to Nord Stream 2 pipeline.  The Biden administration is expected to drop the US's years-long opposition to a new natural gas pipeline between Russia and Germany as early as today, earning swift backlash from top Republicans.  'This is a terrible mistake, it's a mistake that's opposed by both parties in Congress.  It's just another example of the pathetic appeasement of Joe Biden for Vladimir Putin,' Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton said on Fox News Wednesday [7/21/2021].  On top of 'costing' American jobs, Cotton claims the move empowers Russia and 'badly undercuts our allies and partners in Eastern Europe like Poland and Ukraine, who Joe Biden is now apparently pressuring to stay silent.'

CNN Town Hall:  Joe Biden Suggests a 9mm Pistol Ban.  During his Wednesday night [7/21/2021] CNN town hall, President Joe Biden talked about a "push to eliminate" 9mm pistols that have an ammunition capacity beyond that of which the left approves.  Biden said, "The idea you need a weapon that can have the ability to fire 20, 30, 40, 50, 120 shots from that weapon, whether it's a 9mm pistol or whether it's a rifle, is ridiculous.  I'm continuing to push to eliminate the sale of those things."

Biden Tells One Breathtaking Lie at CNN Town Hall.  As we reported earlier, Joe Biden's CNN town hall did not go well.  He completely lost his mind, talked about aliens, praised Xi Jing Ping, and told several lies.  But other than that, great job!  But one lie he told was just so shocking, in light of what we know, it deserved to be highlighted with a post all its own, for how breathtakingly false it was.  Biden has spent months focused on pitching vaccinations.  Despite that, he failed to meet his vaccination goals.  But when he spoke about vaccinations on the town hall he said something shockingly untrue.

Hillary 2.0: Biden Used Private Email While VP to Send Government Intelligence to Hunter Biden - Report.  When now-President Joe Biden was serving as vice president in the Obama administration, his son Hunter Biden was galivanting around the world (sometimes on Air Force Two) in his pursuit of various business deals over which much hay has been made by Biden critics.  This, of course, is quite fair.  It is certainly worthy of note that the father and son jetted off to China together on the vice presidential plane in 2013 and Hunter returned with a business deal with a Chinese state-linked bank.  There's also the matter of Hunter's position on the board of Burisma Holdings, a Ukrainian oil and gas company that was under investigation for corruption at the time that Vice President Biden was spearheading the Obama administration's foreign policy in that nation, something which was likely impeded when Biden, by his own admission, pressured the government to fire the prosecutor heading up the probe by threatening to withhold millions in U.S. aid to the nation if he didn't.

Joe Biden used personal email account to send government intelligence to son Hunter.  As vice president, current President Joe Biden reportedly used a personal, unprotected Gmail account to purposefully transmit State Department information to his crack-smoking son, Hunter.  Emails from the account,, were found on Hunter's infamous laptop, according to investigative journalist John Solomon, the founder of Just The News.  "Some of the messages from the vice president to his son obtained by Just the News were deeply personal, others were political in nature, and still others clearly addressed business matters, often forwarding information coming from senior officials in the White House, the State Department and other government agencies," Solomon reported Tuesday.

Biden speaks at half-empty town hall.  Joe Biden told a restaurateur to simply pay staff more at a town hall on Wednesday night when asked how his administration planned to get people back to work after increasing unemployment benefits by so much that business owners now say they can't compete.  The President was speaking at a half-empty town hall in Cincinnati when he was asked by Ohio restaurant owner John Lanni how he planned to resolve the labor crisis unfolding across America.  Lanni owns the Thunderdome Restaurant Group which has 39 restaurants across the country.  He said he, like thousands of others, can't find staff willing to take restaurant jobs now.  One of the reasons restaurant owners have cited is that people have earned more than ever in unemployment benefits.  At the height of the pandemic, people were earning as much as $16-an-hour in COVID payments.  Twenty-six states have ended them early to get people back to work and in those states, more people are taking jobs.

The real reason why Biden so often indulges in ice cream.  Are all those media items featuring Joe Biden eating ice cream not a diversion from the serious issues of the day, but rather a coded warning?

Here's Joe Biden's report card after six months in the White House.  The first marking period is over and President Biden's grades are coming in. [...] Biden served as a US senator from Delaware for 36 years and earned a bipartisanship ranking that placed him 47th out of all 250 senators between 1993 and 2008, according to a study by The Lugar Center, a nonprofit think tank founded by the late Sen. Richard Lugar (R-Ind.), and Georgetown University's McCourt School of Public Policy.  And during his campaign, Biden repeatedly pledged to work with Republicans, including during an Oct. 6 speech in Gettysburg, Pa., in which he invoked President Abraham Lincoln's Gettysburg Address and said, "We need to revive the spirit of bipartisanship in this country, the spirit of being able to work with one another."  But his first major legislative achievement — a $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief bill dubbed the "American Rescue Plan Act" — was pushed through both the House of Representatives and the Senate without any Republican votes following a failed effort by 10 GOP senators to scale back the spending to $600 billion.

Animatronic Biden joining Hall of Presidents at Disney World.  Forget an inauguration ceremony.  The true indicator of having made it as president is being added to the Hall of Presidents at Walt Disney World in Florida, an honor President Joe Biden will soon receive.  Disney World officials said Monday [7/19/2021] that they were putting the finishing touches on the animatronic Biden replica ahead of its debut next month at the Magic Kingdom attraction that features a tableau of the nation's presidents.

Left-wing Washington Post finally addresses Hunter Biden's ethical scandals in scathing Op-Ed.  The Washington Post's attempt to mock Hunter Biden's artistic aspirations with a full-page op-ed featuring parody paintings inspired by his many ethical controversies backfired when critics slammed the newspaper for failing to take those controversies seriously in its past coverage.  The op-ed by Meghan Kruger was published Monday [7/19/2021] under the headline Sneak Preview!  Paintings from the Hunter Biden Art Show — making light of the real art show the president's son will be featured in at a Manhattan gallery.  Earlier this month it was revealed that the White House helped carve out a deal under which Hunter could sell his paintings for up to $500,000 without disclosing the identity of the buyers — thereby ensuring that they would not win presidential favors.

The Editor says...
What is the name of the organization that will serve as the referee for Hunter Biden's "art" sales, insuring that the names of the buyers will never be known to the Biden family?  With this insulation in place, why would anyone pay more than $100 for any of Hunter's pedestrian artwork?

Shades of Clinton:  Joe Biden used private email to send government information to Hunter.  In a communications backdoor reminiscent of Hillary Clinton's infamous private server, President Biden used a personal email account during the Obama years to send information he was getting from the State Department as vice president to his globetrotting, foreign-deal-making son Hunter Biden.  Messages, sometimes signed "Dad," from the email account were found on a Hunter Biden laptop seized by the FBI in December 2019 from a Delaware computer shop owner.  Some of the messages from the vice president to his son obtained by Just the News were deeply personal, others were political in nature, and still others clearly addressed business matters, often forwarding information coming from senior officials in the White House, the State Department and other government agencies.

The Editor says...
The FBI did not seize Hunter Biden's laptop from a Delaware computer shop.  The shop's owner turned it over to the FBI, after he found out what was on it.

Unscripted remarks start to haunt President Biden.  President Biden has been more freewheeling with his remarks in the last few weeks, leading to slip-ups the White House has had to clean up.  The most recent example came Friday, when Biden accused Facebook of "killing people" because of the misinformation spread on the social media network about coronavirus vaccines.  It was a striking statement that triggered a furious response from Facebook.  And on Monday, it became clear Biden had gone further and been more biting than he intended.  Less than three days after his initial remarks, the president reversed course, saying Facebook "isn't killing people."

Joe Biden's Fears Are Expressed and They Show How Far Gone He Is.  [Scroll down]  This is not a president who is going to look at a problem and solve that problem.  Rather, he's so compromised that he looks at a problem and immediately thinks "how does this affect me?"  If Biden weren't so thoroughly controlled by the left-wing of his party, the simple answer here would be to just fix the border.  I realize that's easier said than done, but much of the flow could be stemmed by simply reinstating the Remain in Mexico policy, quickly rejecting fraudulent asylum claims, and allowing the expedited deportation of those who are detained for crossing illegally.  But if Biden tried to do that, it would enrage his voters, and more importantly, his handlers who actually run the show.  At this point, it should be clear that Biden is simply along for the ride.  If he were truly concerned about receiving blowback for the border crisis, he would take action to fix the border crisis.

Hunter Biden was arranging for VP Joe to quit politics and start a DC 'swamp' consultancy firm together.  Joe Biden had plans to join a law and consultancy firm with his sons Hunter and Beau, emails reveal.  Hunter discussed the proposed firm in a November 2014 email with his business partner and Biden family friend Jeff Cooper, a lawyer and entrepreneur.  The plans were thwarted by Beau's tragic death in 2015 from brain cancer, setting the whole family on a drastically different path.  Had Beau not passed away, the emails suggest that Joe Biden might have quit politics and entered the DC 'swamp' of politically-tied lawyers and highly-paid consultants and lobbyists — a world he has decried in speeches.  The email also raises questions over the president's claim that he never discussed business with Hunter.

Biden answers 'unchecked inflation' question by attacking Trump's obsession with the stock market.  President Joe Biden deflected a question Monday about "unchecked inflation" and turned it into an attack against his predecessor.  Biden fielded a number of questions from reporters after delivering remarks on the economy at the White House and responding to one inquiry on rising prices.  "There's nobody suggesting there's unchecked inflation on the way, no serious economist," he stated.  "Look, the stock market is higher than it has been in all of history."  "Now, I don't look at the stock market as a means by which to judge the economy like my predecessor did," Biden continued.  "He'd be talking to you every day for the last five months about how the stock market is so high, higher than any time in history, still higher than any time in history, so that's not how I judge whether or not we're having economic growth."

Just like Barack H. Obama, Joe Biden has never run a business in his life.  Now he presumes to know more about economics than Donald Trump.

Master of Misinformation:  Joe Biden's 10 Worst Lies.  President Joe Biden is pushing social media companies to suppress what he calls "misinformation" about coronavirus vaccines, blaming it for stalling the administration's rollout and claiming that bad information is "killing people."  Yet Biden has been assisted by deliberate misinformation by social media companies, who suppressed the (true) story of Hunter Biden's laptop, and he has also produced misinformation, for political advantage, that has damaged the country.

Biden's dangerous assault on freedom of speech.  Just days after calling voter identification requirements "the most significant test of our democracy since the Civil War," President Joe Biden accused Facebook of "killing people" by failing to censor what the White House characterizes as "misinformation" about COVID-19 vaccines.  Biden's penchant for hyperbole would not be so worrisome if his press secretary, Jen Psaki, had not called on social media companies to work together in banning sources from all social media platforms.  "You shouldn't be banned from one platform and not others for providing misinformation out there," Psaki said.  The White House's efforts to deputize social media platforms into becoming de facto government censors should be deeply troubling to every citizen who has ever voiced an opinion outside of the politically acceptable mainstream.

Sidestepping the First Amendment.  Emperor Joe Bay-den and Jen "Goebbels" Psaki have decided to start walking down a very dangerous path into the early stages of fascism:  [Video clip]

Biden Brags About 'His' Economic Recovery, But Has To Lie To Do It.  As TV screens showed the Dow Jones tumbling on inflation and renewed COVID fears, President Joe Biden took to the podium Monday [7/19/2021] to brag about how great the economy is doing and why he deserves all the credit.  It was a remarkable act of prestidigitation for such an old man.  Biden said that "it's true that the economy was sputtering before I got here."  That's provably false.  He said that:  "We've gone from 60,000 jobs per month to ... more than 600,000 jobs per month since I took office."  That's grossly misleading.  He went on to boast that:  "Look, we've brought this economy back from the brink."  That is a bald-faced lie.  Biden's intent with his remarks is to argue that his $1.9 trillion "rescue" bill saved the economy, and the even bigger spending bills he wants Congress to pass will keep it going.  No one should believe a word of it.

Biden Argues Massive Government Spending Will Help Fend Off Inflation, Not Exacerbate It.  President Biden argued that a massive influx of government spending bill will help fend off inflation, in a speech on the state of the economy at the White House on Monday.  The White House has dubbed the $1.2 trillion bipartisan infrastructure bill that Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer plans to bring to the floor this week — and the $3.5 trillion budget resolution that Democrats plan to pass in the coming days without Republican support — the "Build Back Better" package.  Biden said Monday that the two bills will help prevent, rather than exacerbate, runaway inflation.

The Left's Contempt for the Masses.  [Scroll down]  It's not just Biden's progressive appointments that are troubling — it's his cagey, secretive manner of instating Marxism.  Biden pretends to be "Joe Sixpack," but he has never worked for any length of time outside government, and he displays contempt for those who do, even to the point of challenging them to fight or do push-ups.  He is the least transparent of presidents, refusing to answer questions as if he is above having to do so.  No questions on the border crisis, no questions on pipelines, no questions on Afghanistan, no questions on anything except "playing ball" — and that answer showed what he thinks about the involvement of ordinary Americans in government.  Just shut up and watch the game.

The Biden Administration is Bringing America to its Knees.  President Biden's Secretary of State Antony Blinken has extended an invitation to two different United Nations Special Rapporteurs.  One deals with contemporary forms of racism while the other is concerned with minority issues.  Binken also welcomed "the UN Human Rights Council's adoption of a resolution that calls for action to combat systemic racism against Africans and people of African descent in the context of law enforcement." [...] The Biden administration has embraced the most radical leftwing approach that America has ever seen.  Communists are now at the helm of government, education, media, entertainment, and the military and their aim has always been to destroy liberty.  In order to be in charge, they must plant doubt about the greatness of America to an already historically-ignorant generation of young Americans.

Mark Levin:  Joe Biden 'Is a Human Pandemic'.  During this week's broadcast of FNC's "Sunday Morning Futures," conservative talker Mark Levin, author of "American Marxism," warned against President Joe Biden's so-called progressive policies, adding they were a threat to America's prosperity.  "My reaction to the agenda is that Joe Biden and his merry group of proletariat supporters there in the White House are destroying this country," he said.  "If I'm communist China, and I'm communist North Korea, and I'm communist Cuba, and I'm communists Venezuela, if I'm the regime in Iran, and so forth, all of our enemies, I'm sitting back and I'm laughing, because Joe Biden is destroying this country from within, and I don't have to raise a finger."

Joe Biden's troubling TECHnique.  Any assessment of Joe Biden's performance last week runs into an obstacle.  While it was awful from start to finish, the hard part is deciding which was the absolute worst moment.  Was it the president's latest attack on state voting law reforms, which he bizarrely called "the most significant test of our democracy since the Civil War"?  Was it the administration's outrageous invitation for the pampered popinjays at the United Nations to sit in judgment of America's racial strife?  Or perhaps it was Biden's decision to push a one-party spending spree of trillions of dollars even as inflation levels reached their highest mark in 13 years?  Under almost any president, each of those events would qualify as a low point.  But Biden is proving to be spectacularly awful at his job, and he did something else that captures the award for the week's Worst of the Worst.  Friday, the president accused Facebook of "killing people" and demanded it silence those opposed to or questioning the coronavirus vaccines.

He Doesn't Seem to Know It, But Joe Biden's Problems Are Mounting Fast.  Joe Biden reaches the six-month mark of his presidency in a few days.  It just seems much longer. [...] Biden or someone acting on his behalf decided he will not attend the opening ceremony for this week's misbegotten Olympics in Tokyo, which is wrapped in a pandemic emergency.  Instead, they're sending the other Biden.  No, not Hunter, the professional artiste.  But Jill.  She's done nothing these six months to hide her smoldering ambition to become something other than a mere first lady; Perhaps the other President Biden, his unelected surrogate, as she's been acting in numerous appearances around the country telling people to get vaccinated on behalf of the Big Guy. [...] Mrs. Biden, who just turned 70, announced that she would not be doing merely ceremonial thingies in Tokyo but would be seen meeting on substantive issues with other foreign leaders.  This could be rich to watch, better even than any of the athletic events, which will have zero spectators.  News coverage is sure to be adoring.

Dementia Joe Goes All in With His Most Insane Comment Yet.  What is misinformation and who gets to define what it is?  The Biden team thinks that they get to.  They think they get to censor what is misinformation because they say so and they put pressure on/or work in tandem with social media platforms.  That's what White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki has made clear.  She admitted it yesterday and then made it worse today, saying that if someone is banned for misinformation from one platform, that person should be banned from every social media platform.

Nothing Is Joe Biden's Fault.  With the Biden administration failing to hit its much-ballyhooed vaccine goal, the blame game is on, and you'll be less than surprised to learn that absolutely none of that failure is Joe Biden's fault.  It's not like the President of the United States should be held accountable for his own messaging campaign.  Rather, the White House has assured the American people that the real culprits here are Facebook posts.  Yes, Democrats blaming Facebook (and social media in general) for their failures worked so well after the 2016 election that they are trying to run the same play again.  Yesterday, Joe Biden asserted that social media companies were "killing people" by allowing "misinformation" to spread about the COVID vaccine.  Jen Psaki backed that up by making Facebook's moderation choices a key issue instead of, you know, Biden's leadership.  In more normal times, such a ridiculous obfuscation of responsibility would be labeled for what it is.  Yet, in our hyper-partisan environment, Biden and his cohorts must be protected at all costs.  As a result, you get insanity like this from people who are ostensibly journalists.  [Tweet]

Ex-lawmaker: Joe Biden 'took direct benefit' from Hunter's dealings.  A former House lawmaker is claiming that there is "direct evidence" that President Biden "took direct benefit" from son Hunter's business dealings.  Former Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) — who now works as a Fox News contributor and fellow at the Government Accountability Institute, a conservative think tank founded by Steve Bannon and Peter Schweizer — made the claim while speaking to "Hannity" Wednesday evening [7/14/2021].  Chaffetz referenced Schweizer, senior editor-at-large at Breitbart News and president of the GAI, while talking about his investigative work on the younger Biden's foreign deals.  Schweizer, Chaffetz explained, had found materials on a hard drive Hunter Biden left at a Wilmington, Del., laptop repair shop — first reported by The Post last October — that prove that the current president directly benefited from his son's work.

Biden Is Unfit to Be President — And the Media Is Unfit to Cover Him.  Joe Biden is not mentally or physically fit to be president of the United States.  This has been obvious to anyone with eyes or ears for the entirety of his presidency. [...] Biden is merely a figurehead.  He is a facsimile of a leader in an office that normally demands sharpness, stamina, and clear-headedness.  No honest assessment can conclude that Biden's public appearances present a man who is in control of his faculties or who looks sharp and confident.  On the contrary, he looks frail, weak, indecisive, unsure of himself, and unsteady.  When he speaks, he often says things that simply don't make sense, even as he almost exclusively reads from a teleprompter or uses notecards.  He has repeatedly said that if he takes unscripted questions from the press, he's "gonna get in trouble" from his staff.  Yet those who do not follow politics closely or ignore conservative outlets could be forgiven for thinking that Biden is fully capable, thanks to the corrupt Fourth Estate that has refused to accurately cover Biden's ever-increasing list of embarrassing moments.

Delaware US Attorney Blocked Hunter Biden Warrants and Subpoenas in Order to Protect the Joe Biden 2020 Election Effort.  Baselines are always important when reviewing information; I cannot stress this enough.  When the corrupt [institutional] officials within the DOJ and FBI need to justify their corrupt activity, or get out in front of any exposure of their corrupt activity, they consistently run to two media outlets, The New York Times and Politico.  [State Dept use CNN, Intelligence Community use Washington Post]  This is the one constant you will notice in all reporting.  That is the baseline for Politico writing today about U.S. Attorney David Weiss intentionally burying information about an investigation of Hunter Biden in the summer and fall of 2020 in order to protect the candidacy of Joe Biden.  USAO Weiss of Delaware stopped the investigation of Hunter Biden, stopped issuing grand jury subpoenas, and stopped the issuance of search warrants in order to keep the public from knowing that Hunter Biden was under a criminal investigation.

Federal Prosecutor Deliberately Delayed Hunter Biden Probe To Shield 2020 Election.  U.S. Department of Justice officials deliberately delayed an investigation into Hunter Biden's potential tax law violations and sketchy overseas business dealings because of the effect it could have on the presidential election, according to a Politico report.  Delaware's U.S. Attorney David Weiss allegedly postponed allowing prosecutors to obtain search warrants and issue grand jury subpoenas last summer, after facing pressure from other officials who feared the investigation's influence on the 2020 presidential election and now-President Joe Biden's campaign.

Hunter Biden prosecutor paused investigation before election: report.  The top federal prosecutor in Delaware decided to pause a criminal investigation of Hunter Biden months before the 2020 election to prevent the public from learning about it, according to a report.  US Attorney David Weiss, appointed by former President Donald Trump, decided not to seek search warrants or issue grand jury subpoenas so as not to "alert the public to the existence of the case in the middle of a presidential election," Politico reports.  The prosecutor's office reportedly was torn over whether to continue its probe or pause it due to the election, and Weiss, who remains in his job leading the case, sided with those who wanted to wait.  "To his credit, he listened," an unnamed source told the publication.

Longtime FBI signature expert says Hunter Biden signed receipt for abandoned laptop.  A retired FBI counterintelligence agent with longtime expertise in signature analysis tells Just the News that Hunter Biden signed an April 2019 Delaware computer repair shop receipt, adding fresh evidence that a controversial laptop turned over to the bureau with eye-popping emails about Ukrainian and Chinese business deals belonged to the president's son.  Retired Special Agent Wayne A. Barnes, a 29-year FBI veteran who mastered signature analysis while unmasking Soviet spies during the Cold War, says the "R.H. Biden" signature — short for Robert Hunter Biden — on the receipt issued in spring 2019 from John Paul Mac Issac's repair shop in Delaware matches those on documents known to have been signed by the president's son, such as Social Security cards, driver's licenses and other public documents.

Barr's Mistaken Choice.  Polls showed Biden as the only Democrat with a realistic chance of beating Donald Trump, so despite having lost two prior attempts at the nomination, and cognitive decline so apparent his deficiencies were painfully on display even during the most closely controlled of public appearances, he and those advising him viewed 2020 as his moment. [...] As the murky depths of Hunter Biden's bizarrely "discarded" laptop are finally plumbed and his father's clear complicity in corrupt dealings becomes more apparent, it will finally dawn on most halfway intelligent people just how badly they were misled and how a little bit of truth parceled out at a few key moments could easily have spared us the unpleasantness that awaits.

Contra Biden, drilling permit approvals are increasing.  You probably recall a proclamation that President Joe Biden issued on his first day in office.  There would be a "pause" in the issuance of new drilling permits on public lands or for offshore sites.  Many of us who follow the energy industry closely had a sinking feeling because that "pause" could easily turn into a de facto ban.  But not long after that, a strange thing happened.  Permits began to quietly be approved again.  Unless I missed it, I never saw an official announcement from the White House declaring an end to the pause, but business seemed to be returning to normal in the oil and gas industry.  (Or as close to normal as anything gets these days.)  And now, in news that will likely come as a shocking disappointment to many of Biden's most ardent supporters in the environmental movement, the total number of permits issued since Joe Biden was sworn in has grown to record levels not seen since George W. Bush was in office.

House Republicans demand answers about Biden family 'cash-grab'.  A dozen Republican members of Congress demanded Wednesday that the White House turn over information related to the business interests of President Biden's family in order to "understand the extent of the Biden family's use of its connection to the President to enrich itself."  The letter to White House Counsel Dana Remus from the members of the House Oversight Committee seeks information on trips then-Vice President Biden took with son Hunter to China in 2013 and Mexico in 2016.  It also asks for a list of "all past and ongoing foreign business interests and past and ongoing foreign relations for members of the Biden family," as well as all "documents and communications regarding Hunter Biden's artwork."  Then Vice President Joe Biden, left, and his son Hunter Biden appear at the Duke Georgetown NCAA college basketball game in Washington on Jan. 30, 2010.

Biden's ironic 'raw power ... big lie' rant is served as a particularly slimy word salad.  President Biden issued a nonsensical word salad that warned about "raw power" as the "centerpiece of common life" in connection to voter integrity laws, which he called the "most dangerous threat to voting" in history.  "Whether it's stopping foreign interference in our elections or the spread of disinformation from within, we have to work together, Biden said in a speech given at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia that called for Americans to rise up against new voter integrity laws that he claims make it harder for people to vote[.]  "Vice President Harris and I will be making it clear that there's real peril in making raw power rather than the idea of liberty the centerpiece of the common life," the president confusingly stated.

The strange career of Jim Crow, Joe Biden edition.  The prominent historian C. Vann Woodward saw The Strange Career of Jim Crow through three editions.  Originally published in 1955, the book was last updated in a third revised edition published in 1974. [...] I wish Woodward were around to comment on the resurrection of Jim Crow — of the charge of "Jim Crow" — for such dishonest uses as those to which Joe Biden put it in his July 13 remarks on "Protecting the Sacred, Constitutional Right to Vote" at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia.  The regime of legal segregation in the South was of course a mainstay and preserve of the Democratic Party.  Although he may have forgotten them by now, Joe Biden himself had warm friendships with several of his Senate colleagues who signed off on the 1956 Southern Manifesto (all Democrats, opposing Brown v.  Board of Education).  The Democrats' imputation of r-a-a-a-cism to Republicans is historically illiterate and otherwise in bad faith.

'One of the Worst Narratives for Us': Facebook Execs Feared Trump Win.  Facebook executives were terrified of being blamed for a Trump presidential victory, according to a New York Times story.  Those same executives later censored the Hunter Biden story that helped Joe Biden win the presidency. [...] This is the same Facebook that violated its own rules to censor the Hunter Biden story before the presidential election.  Director of Communications Andy Stone tweeted then that Facebook would be suppressing the New York Post story, saying, "While I will intentionally not link to the New York Post, I want be clear that this story is eligible to be fact checked by Facebook's third-party fact checking partners.  In the meantime, we are reducing its distribution on our platform."  The International Fact-Checking Network's Associate Director Cristina Tardáguila called that move "dangerous."  Yet now it's pretty clear why they did it.  Facebook executives were terrified about being called "a far-right echo chamber," and didn't want the blame for a Trump sequel.

Biden's Philly speech demonstrated that he doesn't understand the Constitution.  President Biden's July 13 speech in Philadelphia to denounce current Republican attempts nationwide to restore election integrity was an angry, non-stop vomitus of lies and hysteria. [...] More important than Bidenisms was his great cascade of lies.  At the 4:48 mark Biden made a long, hysterical attack on all those who challenged the 2020 elections results, including this falsehood:  ["]More than 80 judges, including those appointed by my predecessor, heard the arguments.["]  No they did not.  That is a LIE.  Those cases were dismissed without hearing on procedural grounds.  No hearings on the merits were held.

Joe Biden's Shameful Voting-Rights Speech.  Republican "anti-voting laws," President Joe Biden claimed during his demagogic speech at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia this afternoon, are the most "significant threat to our democracy since the Civil War." These laws are "odious," "pernicious," "vicious," and "unconscionable," a "subversion and suppression," the "21st-century Jim Crow," and the sure sign of an emerging "autocracy." Biden's fabricated panic offers lots of space for hyperbole, but precious little room for specifics.  I was prepared to fact-check Biden's contentions about new election laws, but the president offered few details.  Perhaps he comprehends that most Americans would probably find voter-integrity laws rather innocuous.

Joe Biden, shameless liar.  In an impassioned speech today [7/13/2021] (or what passes for one in his current condition), Joe Biden claimed that the voting laws being passed and/or considered by some Republican controlled state legislatures such as Georgia's pose "the most dangerous threat to voting and the integrity of free and fair elections in our history." This claim isn't just false, it's absurd.  Biden doesn't know much about history, but he's surely aware that there was a time in the last century when Blacks in some states had to answer difficult questions to the satisfaction of racist local officials to be able to vote.  And even if they passed these tests, they might be shot at or even killed for exercising their right to vote.  (All of this and more is set forth in excruciating detail by Robert Caro in his biography of Lyndon Johnson.)  Now, all Blacks have to do is prove they are who they say they are — same as Whites and everyone else.  More than 80 percent of Americans support this common sense requirement.  More than 60 percent of Democrats do.  (The numbers are 75 and 60 percent in a different poll.)  Moreover, 69 percent of Blacks support voter ID laws.  There was a time when virtually all voting occurred on Election Day.  If you wanted to vote early, your options were limited and sometimes non-existent.  Now, in Georgia and elsewhere there are all sorts of opportunities to vote early.  And the new Georgia law expands, rather than shrinks, these opportunities.

Joe Biden Quotes Nazis, Lies Relentlessly, and Generally Goes Nuts During 'Voter Suppression' Speech.  Unlike many of his past speeches, the story wasn't Biden's brain breaking down as he attempted to read the teleprompter.  Sure, there were moments where he looked as if he were going to pass out, but it was the substance that was far more disturbing.  The basis of Biden's speech was the idea that Republicans are trying to stop minorities from voting by having normal standards for the election systems in their respective states.  Texas is currently in the crosshairs by daring to attempt to outlaw ballot harvesting and no-request absentee ballots.  If you've been reading RedState the last day, then you know about Texas Democrats fleeing the state in a ridiculous gambit to deny the Republican majority a quorum to vote.

Hunter Biden's Art Sales:  Ethical Mess Made Worse by White House.  Allow me to join the chorus of voices congratulating Hunter Biden for waking up one day recently as an accomplished and commercially successful artist, a sudden event that curiously corresponded with his father's becoming president of the United States.  This is surely a coincidence, and certainly only represents the latest shift in Hunter's colorful career path.  In his latest endeavor, he has moved from trading on his father's name to siphon a fortune from shady foreign businessmen to trading on his father's name to siphon a fortune from shady "art collectors" from places unknown.  In case you missed the news, President Joe Biden's son is now a hot commodity in the art world.  Though Hunter Biden hasn't publicly presented his work for sale before, New York City art dealer Georges Berges will conduct two exhibitions this fall — in Los Angeles and New York.  Berges projects the pieces will sell at prices ranging from $75,000 for drawings on paper to $500,000 for large paintings.  But if you're concerned that this represents an opportunity for nefarious characters to covertly line Hunter's pockets in efforts to influence his father, never fear, the White House has a solution:  All details of the transactions will be shrouded completely from public view.

Want Proof That Hunter Biden's 'Art' Sale Is An Influence-Peddling Scam?  President Joe Biden's disreputable, drug-addled son Hunter recently decided to sell his "art," which sparked a round of hand-wringing over the ethical implications.  Hunter, you see, has no experience as an artist.  And, based on the paintings we've seen, he has no discernible talent.  But Hunter's "artwork" will be sold at "a private and confidential opening" in Los Angeles, with the various pieces said to be priced between $75,000 and $500,000.  This is Clinton Foundation-style corruption all over again, without the pretense of a charity.  The White House says the sale is perfectly ethical because the buyer or buyers will be anonymous.  As CNN reports, "the White House was involved in forming an agreement between a SoHo New York Gallery owner, Georges Bergès, and Hunter Biden in an effort to address any ethics concerns."  As far as the "truth to power" media is concerned, they can wash their hands of this whole affair.  After all, if the Biden White House says this is on the up-and-up, who could ever doubt that?

Trump Responds to Joe Biden's Panicked Flight to Pennsylvania In Fruitless Attempt to Stop Forensic Audit.  If they can's cheat — They can't win[.]  Last week Pennsylvania State Senator Doug Mastriano announced he was initiating a full forensic audit of the 2020 presidential election on several Pennsylvania counties.  This news obviously shocked the Democrat state leaders in Pennsylvania.  Late Friday the Pennsylvania Department of State issued a directive prohibiting county election boards from cooperating with the Senate's election audit.  And then Joe Biden announced he was flying into Philadelphia to push the Democrats' talking points on voting without confidence.

Fact-Checking 6 Big Claims in Biden's Partisan-Tinged Speech on Voting.  [#2]  Biden talked about several states, but singled out Texas, which Democratic state legislators fled Monday for Washington, D.C., to avoid casting a vote on Republican-backed election reforms.  "In Texas, for example, the Republican state Legislature wants to allow partisan poll watchers to intimidate voters and imperil and impartial poll workers," Biden said, apparently flubbing a line.  According to news reports, the proposal in Texas would give more autonomy to partisan poll watchers, granting them "free movement" at polling places other than in a voting booth when a voter casts a ballot.  The legislation would make it criminal for an election worker in Texas to obstruct the view of a poll watcher or position him "in a manner that would make observation not reasonably effective," The Texas Tribune reported.  Texas law currently allows poll watchers to sit or stand "conveniently near" election workers.  It is a criminal offense to prevent them from observing.

President Biden's pathetic attempt to rig the rules.  Before 2020, drive-thru voting was virtually non-existent in the United States.  But now that the state of Texas has banned the practice after it was used by some localities in the 2020 election, suddenly our democracy cannot survive without it.  "We're facing the most significant test of our democracy since the Civil War," said President Joe Biden of Republican efforts to enact voting laws in states they control.  "That's not hyperbole, since the Civil War."  If we are to take Biden seriously, if our nation really is facing its biggest threat since the Civil War, then why didn't Biden ask Senate Democrats to end the filibuster?  With the filibuster gone, Democrats could pass their "For the People Act," which would federalize U.S. elections and prevent states and localities from enacting common-sense voting regulations like voter ID requirements.  If the stakes are really so high, why not make this speech back in June, before the Senate voted to reject the Democrats' voting legislation?

Greg Abbott accuses President of spreading 'misinformation'.  Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said President Joe Biden and his fellow Democrats' efforts to enact voting reform pose 'the greatest threat to the United States since the Civil War.'  Gingrich spoke on Fox News hours after Biden gave a speech in Philadelphia blasting 'un-American' and 'undemocratic' election laws passed by Republican governors and legislatures.  Biden said that the fight to preserve voting rights is 'the most significant test of our democracy since the Civil War.'  It comes as Republican Texas Governor Greg Abbott accused Biden of purposefully spreading 'misinformation.'  Taking to Twitter, Abbott said Biden 'ignores the facts' and claimed proposed voting reforms would 'uphold the integrity of our elections and ensure that Texas who do qualify to vote by mail will have the ability to do so.'

[Biden] Delivers Angry Speech in Philadelphia Demanding All Resources Must Activate to Defend His Legitimacy.  The speech Joe Biden delivered Tuesday [7/13/2021] in Philadelphia was not the rant of a righteous or confident man.  Instead the speech was a bitter, angry and divisive plea for help from those extreme leftists who supported his installation.  The need for control is a reaction to fear.  That fear was what Biden displayed above all other attributes.  A fear that more American people will begin to see the false construct of his installation.  A fear that those who perpetrated the fraud of his election will be exposed because the scale of their manipulation is far too great to continue hiding.  The fear that a small amount of actual investigation, with more audits looming, will reveal how a few key corrupt counties coordinated a massive election fraud. [...] The angry speech was full of projection, denial and extreme defensiveness.  Yup, the need for control is a reaction to fear, and it was very obvious Joe Biden feels the control is slipping away.

"Have You No Shame?"; Biden Melts Down During Angry Speech On Voting Rights.  Republicans are trying to make it harder for Democrats to steal future elections, and this is making Joe Biden incredibly angry.  During a speech on Tuesday, Biden's anger came through.  At one point, he even shouted "Have you no shame?" at Republicans.  The elderly man in the White House is clearly having a rough go of things.  "Stand up [...] and help prevent this concerted effort to undermine our election and the sacred right to vote," Biden said, directed at Republicans.  "Have you no shame?!" he added.  [Video clip]

Biden Implies that Civil War Confederate Soldiers Were Better People Than Trump Supporters on Jan. 6th.  During an unhinged speech on Wednesday in Philadelphia, President Joe Biden implied that Confederate soldiers were better people than the Trump supporters at the January 6th riot because not even the "confederates" during the Civil War "never breached the Capitol."  The comments from Biden came when he accused Republicans of attempting to "suppress and subvert the right to vote" with voter security laws.  "There's an unfolding assault taking place in America today, an attempt to suppress and subvert the right to vote in fair and free elections, an assault on democracy, an assault on liberty, and assault on who we are, who we are as Americans, for make no mistake, bullies and merchants of fear, peddlers of lies, are threatening the very foundation of our country," Biden stated.

Biden Labels GOP Voting Laws Greatest Threat to American Democracy Since Civil War.  Speaking from the National Constitutional Center in Philadelphia on Tuesday, President Biden forcefully condemned the wave of election integrity laws recently passed in red states, calling the laws an "assault" on the right to vote and the "most significant threat" to the U.S. since the Civil War.  There is "an unfolding assault taking place in America today, an attempt to suppress and subvert the right to vote," Biden said.

Biden's nutty speech in Philadelphia capped by reference to notorious quote attributed to Stalin.  President Biden escalated his already inflammatory rhetoric over election integrity safeguards yesterday in a speech delivered in Philadelphia.  Having previously denounced basic measures such as requiring voter ID (an almost universal requirement in other advanced democracies) as "Jim Crow on steroids," he claimed, "We're are facing the most significant test of our democracy since the Civil War," a shockingly irresponsible comparison.

Biden calls GOP voting bills 'odious and vicious' and are 'the most significant threat to democracy since the Civil War'.  President Joe Biden on Tuesday [7/13/2021] launched an assault on attempts by Republican-controlled states to change voting rights laws, blasting them as a 'threat to democracy' and vowing to protect 'free and fair elections.'  'This is election subversion.  It is the most dangerous threat to voting in the integrity of free and fair elections in our history,' he said, speaking at the historic National Constitution Center in Philadelphia.  Voting issues have become a top priority for both parties.

First lady Jill Biden to fly to Tokyo for virus-plagued Olympic Games.  First lady Jill Biden will travel to Tokyo for the 2020 Summer Olympics despite the Japanese government declaring a state of emergency in an effort to prevent the postponed competition from becoming a COVID-19 superspreader event.  Biden will attend the opening ceremony on July 23 as the head of the U.S. delegation, the East Wing announced Tuesday morning [7/13/2021].  Jill Biden led the U.S. delegation to the 2010 Vancouver Olympic Winter Games when her husband, President Joe Biden, was vice president.  This year's iteration of the quadrennial competition promises to be like no other after it was delayed by 12 months because of the coronavirus pandemic.

China seems to benefit from most of the things Joe Biden does.  I wonder why.
China will benefit when Biden caves to climate activists:  Marc Morano.  [Quoting Marc Morano]:  Well these activists, and by the way, make no mistake Biden is going to cave on this, right now the White House is posturing themselves as hawks they are not going to give in, but essentially the Earth is facing such a climate catastrophe that it doesn't matter what China does.  It doesn't matter what China does in any human rights violations and any other policy all that matters is that we save the planet.  So, in doing so, we are going to completely kneecap the United States by continuing to shut down our energy and then turning it over to China, which by the way is building the equivalent of one new coal plant a week as America shuts down our energy.  This is bonkers but this is going to the American foreign policy pause the sunrise movement, union concerned scientists heavily involved.

Why Congress Should Demand An Audit Of Biden's Taxes.  A bipartisan Senate working group has proposed paying for new infrastructure spending in part by providing $40 billion to the Internal Revenue Service.  But before Congress even considers the legislation, conservatives rightly skeptical of doling out new funds and authority to the IRS should pose one simple request to the Biden administration:  You want to audit other "rich" people?  Why not audit yourself first, Mr. President?  While the press has largely ignored it in favor of wall-to-wall coverage of his predecessor's tax practices, Biden's returns raise their own set of questions.  If the current president declines this offer, Congress should take the matter out of his hands, and propose an amendment to the infrastructure bill requiring the IRS to audit the last four years of tax returns for Joe and Jill Biden.

Peter Schweizer:  Our Copy of Hunter Biden's Laptop Confirms 'Joe Biden Was a Direct Beneficiary' of His Son's Deals.  Peter Schweizer, president of the Government Accountability Institute (GAI), said on Monday [7/12/2021] that his organization had confirmed that President Joe Biden "was a direct beneficiary" of Hunter Biden's financial deals with foreign interests.

The Editor says...
I predict that within a couple of years (if not already), you will be able to purchase an exact replica of Hunter Biden's laptop, with all the data that it contained when it was left at the repair shop, and eventually abandoned.  That way, you can explore it yourself and draw your own conclusions.  Who knows — maybe somebody has already done this.

Psaki claims Biden didn't discuss business with Hunter — despite docs that suggest otherwise.  White House press secretary Jen Psaki insisted Friday [7/9/2021] that President Biden "does not" talk business with his son — despite new records indicating otherwise — and separately confirmed that Hunter Biden still co-owns a Chinese investment firm.  Psaki denied that the president talks business with his son in response to new evidence that he met, while vice president, with Hunter Biden's business associates from Ukraine, Russia, Kazakhstan and Mexico.  "The president does not discuss business dealings with family members and otherwise I'm not going to respond to Rudy Giuliani's lawyer," Psaki said in response to a question from The [New York] Post at her daily press briefing.

Media has little interest in photos of Biden invading personal space of grieving 12-yr-old girl.  A seemingly nice gesture by President Joe Biden has drawn negative attention because of his history of inappropriate behavior toward females, including young girls.  While visiting with and reportedly consoling victims of the Surfside condominium building collapse on July 1st, the president reportedly zeroed in on a 12-year-old girl whose father and uncle remain missing and are may be among the deceased.  A viral photo of the encounter shows him standing right in the young girl's face, his hands firmly gripping her wrists and her eyes meekly staring down.

Psaki says White House has protected Hunter Biden's questionable art 'career' with 'safeguards'.  The White House is reportedly now proudly involved in the so-called art "career" of Hunter Biden, the crack-smoking son of the president, and this is so potentially unethical that even CNN, a Biden administration sycophant, has noticed.  The Washington Post confirmed Thursday that White House officials recently "helped craft an agreement" concerning the selling of Biden's so-called "artwork."  The agreement was crafted in response to concerns that the selling of Biden's "artwork" could easily be exploited to conduct the sort of nefarious influence-peddling that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was notoriously accused of.  While Clinton was never charged, evidence exists showing that the Clinton Foundation had peddled influence through a "pay-to-play" scheme in which donors gave them money, and in return, they gave donors access to the then-secretary of state.

Hunter Biden art show sparks ethics concerns.  Government ethics watchdogs and art critics alike are voicing their concerns as first son Hunter Biden prepares for his first solo art exhibition this fall — where paintings from the former lawyer and lobbyist are expected to fetch between $75,000 and $500,000 and buyers will remain anonymous.  "The whole thing is a really bad idea," Richard Painter, chief ethics lawyer for President George W. Bush, told the Washington Post.  "The initial reaction a lot of people are going to have is that he's capitalizing on being the son of a president and wants people to give him a lot of money.  I mean, those are awfully high prices."  Walter Shaub, who led the Office of Government Ethics under President Barack Obama, told the paper that the art buyers having their identities protected created a host of problems.

Joe Biden Finally Gets Some Tough Questions and Things Go Badly.  Joe Biden held a press conference Thursday [7/8/2021] to discuss the pull-out from Afghanistan, with the military mission set to end August 31st.  In the process, perhaps because it wasn't the normal, fawning press corps asking him questions (these were mostly reporters from the national security beat), the president finally got some tough questions thrown at him.  Let's just say that he didn't handle it very well, but to start, here's a clip of Biden blanking out, something that is basically a given anytime he speaks in public.  [Video clip]

The White House helped Hunter Biden reach deal to keep buyers of his paintings confidential so they could 'avoid' ethics issues.  The White House helped broker the deal that would allow buyers of Hunter Biden's paintings to remain confidential, despite widespread concerns it could lead to bribery and influence peddling, it was revealed on Thursday [7/8/2021].  The plan will allow Hunter Biden to forge ahead with his new career as an artist after a career change from a high-paid consultant on international deals, by also shielding him from the identities of those who purchase his pricey works.  The deal came about after Biden administration staffers reached out to Hunter's lawyers to forge a plan intended to 'avoid' ethics concerns and let the president's son pursue his new career.

Jen Psaki says Hunter Biden has 'the right' to pursue new career and denies anonymous painting buyers will have improper influence.  White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said Hunter Biden had a 'right to pursue an artistic career,' as she tried on Friday to justify the administration's role in brokering arrangements for the sale of his paintings.  It followed revelations that the White House helped set up a deal for buyers' identities to remain hidden to ensure they did not win presidential favors.  This White House has frequently promised full transparency in pursuit of the highest ethical standards.  Now that means secrecy.

Joe Biden Gives the Most Painful Pause in Presidential History Before Botching Historic Quote.  If Joe Biden had a 'pregnant pause' during a speech on Thursday, then this one might be considered the 'octomom' of presidential pauses.  The sitting U.S. president appeared to struggle to complete a semi-coherent thought, and in the process, appeared to comically botch a quote about slain terrorist Osama bin Laden.  "We went for two reasons," he said.  "One, to..." Biden added then paused awkwardly.

Yesterday, Joe Biden had one of those 'bad days' that dementia patients get.  We all have good days and bad days, but for people undergoing cognitive decline, the bad days are both dangerous and noticeable to others.  It's a very tough thing to go through, both for the sufferer and for his/her relatives and loved ones.  With Joe Biden as president, we are all in the position of loved ones impacted by the decline of cognition, trying to avoid the sort of disastrous consequences that can befall someone who's losing the ability to fully function mentally.  During his press conference Thursday, President Biden twice got completely lost and went silent, looking pitiful.  Did he hear something via an earbud?  We may never know, but these two tweets excerpted the brain freezes.

Biden's cognitive decline continues to be swift and obvious.  More video emerged on Thursday [7/8/2021] showing that Joe Biden's cognitive decline has neither slowed nor stopped.  As I've mentioned before, I don't feel sorry for him because his long history of corruption, nastiness, racism, and pervy behavior disqualifies him from getting my compassion.  And while I'd like to feel Schadenfreude as to the Democrats — that is, I'd like to enjoy watching Democrats struggle with a mentally decompensating president — the fact that Biden is theoretically the leader of the free world makes the situation too scary for Schadenfreude.  The latest evidence of Biden's swift mental decomposition occurred when he appeared before the press to take questions about Afghanistan.  This video is admittedly a compilation of select bad moments over a more extended time, but you're seeing repeated examples of a man struggling to hunt down the elusive thoughts in his head so that he can verbalize them.

"More Criminal Activity Than Al Capone"; Trump Claims He Has Seen Hunter Biden's Laptop.  During a press conference in Bedminster on Wednesday, President Donald Trump claimed that he had seen Hunter Biden's "laptop from hell," asserting the computer had "more criminal activity than Al Capone had."  The comments from the former president came as he revealed his massive lawsuit against Big Tech giants including Facebook, Twitter and Google.  "The laptop from hell," Trump said during the event.  "You look at that thing, there's more criminal activity on that laptop than Al Capone had if he ever had a laptop," he added.  The former president continued by stating that he has seen Hunter Biden's laptop first hand and it is worse than he thought.

"How Old Are You? 14?" Biden Asks Little Girl if She's a Teenager During Tour of Child Development Center in Illinois.  Joe Biden on Wednesday [7/7/2021] traveled to Illinois to promote his infrastructure bill that has nothing to do with infrastructure.  Biden was greeted by 1,000 Trump supporters as he arrived in Crystal Lake.  Joe Biden creeped on a little girl as he toured a child development center.  Creepy Joe beelined it to a little girl as soon as he entered one of the classrooms.

Even Obama Ethics Chief Blasts Hunter Biden Art Scheme Arranged By the White House.  As I previously reported, there are a lot of questions being raised about Hunter Biden's latest venture — that of selling his "art." Why?  Because it was announced that they would not be revealing who was buying the art and it allegedly would involve vast sums of money being paid to Hunter through an art dealer.  His 'artwork' was being priced between $75,000 and $500,000 dollars apiece, depending on the size and nature, according to Fox Business.  As I said, do they think we were born yesterday and we really think this guy's art is worth that?  His art is worth more than the art of even famous artists to start with?  According to Fox Business, a piece by Andy Warhol sold for $725,000 at a New York auction, by comparison.  So we're really supposed to believe that Hunter's art is so inspired?

Who Is in Charge?  Last week President * went out for ice cream again, and the media was on it, quizzing him on what flavor he selected, the kind of cone, whether it was yummy.  It seemed to be yummy, according to the flashcards that he uses to help him survive these intense journalist grillings.  It's great to know that our alleged president is capable of licking an ice cream cone.  Unfortunately, besides watching "Matlock" reruns, that's about all this crusty old weirdo can do.  He's senile, and he's a mess.  That's not open to debate, because we aren't allowed to debate it — at least not in the mainstream media.  It is the truth which must not be uttered.  Everyone sees the emperor has no clothes, mostly because Dr. Jill went out for coffee and Joe forgot to put on his pants again.  So, who is actually in charge?

The Future of Hunter Biden's Laptop.  Many — actually, most — big press and social media organizations have ignored and even suppressed news that has come from Hunter Biden's laptop.  They started the censorship just before the 2020 election, when Biden's father Joe was on the presidential ballot and vulnerable to negative news, and they're still censoring today.  But in the past few weeks there has been a stream of stories, in the New York Post and a few other outlets, based on information contained in the Biden laptop.  The stories are significant and suggest, but do not prove, shady financial dealings in the Biden family.  The question is whether some media organizations will finally admit there is news on the laptop.  The most important thing to remember is that the Hunter Biden laptop story is not about Hunter Biden.  It's about Joe Biden, President of the United States.  S

Joe Biden's shocking admission of addiction is disclosed in texts to son Hunter.  Five members of Joe Biden's close family have been to rehab for drug or alcohol abuse, can reveal.  The president's brother Frank, children Hunter and Ashley, his niece Caroline and his late son's widow who also became Hunter's lover, Hallie, have all suffered from addiction issues and had spells in treatment centers — some at the orders of a judge.  In text messages to Hunter, Joe even referred to his son's addiction as a 'disease from mommy and me.'

The question is when, not if, Hunter Biden's laptop will bring down Joe Biden's presidency.  Thanks to a series of leaks from the hard drive of Hunter Biden's abandoned laptop computer, we know there is more than enough evidence to appoint a special counsel, or at least convene a grand jury to investigate bribery, tax fraud, and probably several other categories of crime involving the Biden Crime Family.  Three recent articles by highly respected reporters Miranda Devine (who has a book on the subject about to come out and whose work informs the other two writers), Byron York, and Emily Jashinsky present evidence typed in Hunter's own hand of the schemes whereby Hunter acted as the bagman collecting vast wealth from foreign interests by selling access to Joe when he was vice president and a potential candidate for the presidency.  All three accounts are worth reading, though there is considerable overlap.

In A Healthy Country, The Bidens Would Be Seen As The Picture Of Elite Corruption.  On January 3rd, 2019, around 7:30 p.m., Hunter Biden sent a text message to his 25-year-old daughter Naomi.  "I love all of you," he wrote, "But I don't receive any respect and that's fine I guess — works for you apparently.  I hope you all can do what I did and pay for everything for this entire family for 30 years.  It's really hard."  "But don't worry," Hunter continued, "unlike Pop I won't make you give me half your salary."  We know this because the Daily Mail just published a screenshot of the message, which was reportedly recovered from Hunter's infamous laptop.  The laptop, like his memoir, continues fleshing out a tragic picture of addiction and dysfunction.  Importantly, however, the addiction and dysfunction are the public's problem too, given that Hunter was wrapped up in an influence peddling operation in which he traded on his father's name to carry out lucrative business deals.  That makes the sad work of reading his personal correspondence crucial given that his father is the president of the United States.

Video evidence suggests Biden is a Potemkin president, without real support.  When Catherine the Great of Russia traveled in the late 18th century, her former lover, Grigory Potemkin, would travel ahead of her and build hasty façades along the main thoroughfares in impoverished, bedraggled villages to create the impression of a prosperous nation.  Thus, a Potemkin village is a fake that artificially puffs up a leader's competence and popularity.  Two recent videos, one of Biden's fans turning out to greet him in Michigan and another of Trump's fans turning out for him in Florida, show that Biden is a Potemkin president.  It's all fake.  The first video shows Biden traveling through Antrim County, which he purportedly won.  And remember, as you watch it, that we're being told that Biden got more votes than any other president in history, including Barack Obama:  [Video clip shows sparse crowd.]

China certainly has a lot of good luck, now that Joe Biden is president.  I wonder why.
China makes its move on Afghanistan:  Beijing prepares to fill the vacuum left by Biden's premature military exit.  While American troops were leaving their main military base in Afghanistan on Friday, China was already preparing to enter the war-torn country to fill the vacuum left by U.S. and NATO troops.  Authorities in Kabul are considering extending a $62 billion China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) as part of China's Belt and Road Initiative (BRI).  First launched in 2013 by Chinese president Xi Jinping, and written into the Chinese constitution in 2017, it is billed by Beijing officials as a global infrastructure development fund which aims to better connect China to the rest of the world.

NLPC: China increased donation to UPenn's Biden Center by 400 percent after Biden announced 2020 presidential campaign.  New disclosures have shown the Chinese government could have indirectly contributed to Joe Biden's 2020 campaign.  The Biden Center at University of Pennsylvania received $50 million from China after Biden announced his presidential bid in 2018.  According to an analysis conducted by the National Legal and Policy Center, the Biden Center opened in 2017 and received $8 million from China that year.  However, after Biden announced he was running for president in 2018, his donations from China soared by nearly 400 percent.

Hunter Biden Proposed Union for Prostitutes, According to Texts on Leaked Hard Drive.  Hunter Biden, who spent thousands of dollars on prostitutes across the nation, proposed a plan for them to unionize in a 2019 conversation that was on his leaked hard drive.  The president's son also asserted that he has been "telling strippers for 25 years that they should unionize."  In a March 2, 2019, conversation with an employee from Los Angeles's Chateau Marmont, obtained by the Washington Examiner, Biden said prostitutes need to organize more.

The Editor says...
Hunter Biden's laptop, and the hard drive therein, were abandoned at a repair shop.  The hard drive was not leaked, hacked, or stolen.

President Dementia is getting worse.  Embarrassing incidents of inappropriate Biden behavior are accumulating, even as the agitprop media begin publishing material that makes Kamala Harris look unsuitable as a replacement should the 25th Amendment be invoked. [...] In a clear sign that cognitive impairment has destroyed his understanding of normal behavior, not to mention protocol, Joe Biden humiliated himself and the United States by dropping to his knee before a foreign guest in the White House. [...] A scientist friend who is an expert on brain function emailed me:  ["]I think he's become too bizarre and irrational to last long.  The whispering thing has occurred three or four times, a clear loss of adult judgment about normal behavior.  This is even worse.  It's also on international display, cannot be hidden.["]  Last Friday, the president made an easily disprovable boast that puts him in the company of communist dictators who were claimed to have performed impossible feats of athletic accomplishment.  Back in 1966, when he was launching the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution, Mao Zedong's henchmen claimed he had swum nine miles in the Yangtze River in 65 minutes, stopping along the way to teach the backstroke to a youngster.  It was obvious nonsense.

The 3 Biden Scandals You're Not Hearing About.  Although President Joe Biden has been known to angrily confront reporters for what he considers overly harsh questions, the legacy media have taken it remarkably easy on the president and his family.  While the media have circled hungrily around every potential charge facing Allen Weisselberg and remain focused on the Trump family, they have ignored multiple scandals facing Joe Biden, his son, and his brother. [...] Emails and photographs retrieved from Hunter Biden's laptop appear to show that then-Vice President Joe Biden met repeatedly with his son's business associates, raising issues of influence peddling.  A photograph shows the then-sitting vice president meeting with Hunter and two business associates, Carlos Slim and Jeff Cooper, on November 19, 2015.  The New York Post's Miranda Divine reports that Hunter had spent much of that year pursuing Slim to invest in a number of business options, including Cooper's online gambling platform, Ocho Gaming.  This would be at least the second meeting Biden allegedly attended with his son's foreign business connections while vice president. [...] It's become a national tradition for Democratic presidents to have shady brothers, from Billy Carter to Roger Clinton to Ted Kennedy.  But each of those figures caused their siblings far greater media embarrassment with fewer scandals than first brother James Biden.  The 46th president's younger brother has raised the practice of grift to a fine art.

New Hunter Biden Disclosures Feature $100,000 Donation Of Former FBI Director Freeh To The Biden Grandchildren.  We recently discussed the latest disclosures from the laptop of Hunter Biden showing new business dealings leveraging access to his father — and further contradicting President Joe Biden's repeated denials of any knowledge or involvement with his son's deals.  Now there is a new disclosure of $100,000 given to the Biden grandchildren by former FBI Director Louis Freeh, who was seeking business deals with the Bidens.  As usual, there remains a virtual blackout on the Biden laptop or the mounting evidence of Hunter Biden's influence peddling.  Beyond a couple outlets like the New York Post, voters have to rely on the foreign press for coverage of the disclosures.  Freeh reportedly made the gift in April 2016 to the trust for the children of Hunter's late brother, Beau Biden, who died of brain cancer in 2015.  The donation would well be a humanitarian gesture.  However, it was the contemporaneous pitches for business deals with Hunter that has attracted the attention of some.

This is what happens when you let him hide in the basement.  For the record, I am not a psychiatrist or expert.  I just see a president of the U.S. who has to check his 3x5 cards before answering a question about Russia. [...] In reality, what we are seeing is what happens when the media lets a candidate hide in the basement and does not hold a single press conference.  Yes, candidate Biden did some video interviews but it was always controlled.  Did he ever appear with Chris Wallace on Sunday?  Love or hate Wallace, he would have asked some tough questions, such as ones about his border policies.  None of this happened.  We allowed a man who keeps showing his age to avoid the kind of scrutiny that President Trump got.  This is on the media.  They were obsessed with Trump and forgot that the other guy had a chance of winning and deserved some attention.

Hunter Biden memos call into question congressional testimony of Democrat lobbying firm.  Hunter Biden memos on a laptop recovered by the FBI directly conflict with the congressional testimony of two key executives at a Democrat-connected firm who asserted they did not deal with the current president's son while working for a Ukrainian energy firm where the younger Biden served on the board.  The questions about the testimony from Blue Star Strategies officials comes as the Justice Department is reportedly investigating whether the firm violated the Foreign Agent Registration Act with its work contacting federal officials on behalf of the Ukrainian natural gas company Burisma Holdings.  Blue Star, a lobbying and strategy firm with deep Democrat connections dating to the Bill Clinton era, was hired in late 2015 by Burisma in an effort to improve its image and fight corruption allegations the Ukrainian firm had been facing since early 2014 when Hunter Biden joined its board, according to documents previously published by Just the News.

Hunter Biden Consulted for Oil Man Connected to Notorious Congolese Warlord, Emails Show.  Hunter Biden consulted for a Nigerian-American businessman who tried to buy gold from a wanted Congolese warlord known as "The Terminator," according to emails from Biden's abandoned laptop.  Biden arranged introductory meetings in 2011 and 2012 for Kase Lawal, the president of CAMAC International, a Houston-based oil company, and the ambassadors of the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia, the emails show.  Biden partnered with Mike Axelrod, the son of Obama adviser David Axelrod, on the consulting agreement.  Lawal was appointed to serve on President Obama's international trade advisory board in September 2010.  Months later, Lawal paid $10 million to purchase gold from Bosco Ntaganda, a Congolese rebel warlord accused by the International Criminal Court of leading an ethnic cleansing campaign.

The truth is not in him.
Biden Gets Busted Over False Baseball Boast.  Joe Biden told us yesterday, "word of a Biden" we were on the verge of America's "greatest future."  There are a couple of problems with that.  We may be on the verge of America's "greatest future" but it will be in spite of Biden, not because of it and likely only after we are past Biden because of his awful policies.  But the other problem is that the word of a Biden isn't worth anything.  Media doesn't acknowledge them as lies, but Biden lies like he breathes.  His most common type of lie is the one that puffs him up — the boasting lie.  That's the kind of lie that made him have to drop out of his first presidential race in 1988, when he plagiarized other politicians and lied about his educational background.  He's lied about marching for civil rights.  He's lied about being arrested trying to see Nelson Mandela.  That kind of lying is one of the reasons he was dismissed as a buffoon for years until the Democrats thought they needed him as the safe, congenial old guy to secure their power.  But now, he told another whopper when he had the World Series winners, the Los Angeles Dodgers, to the White House on Friday [7/2/2021].

The Editor says...
America used to have reasons to be optimistic about the future, until Joe Biden torpedoed most of them with his executive orders immediately upon assuming the office of president.

Biden's Administration Is the 'Wrecking Crew'.  Imagine a somewhat buffoonish, past-his-prime, cognitively challenged man entrusted with the survival of the free world who is surrounded by handlers who both take care of him and count on him to come through in the clutch.  If you are thinking of Joe Biden, you are only half correct.  More than half a century ago, Dean Martin perfected the role of the bumbling big cheese in his 1960s spy spoof movie series based on the Matt Helm novels.  Martin, of course, was playing a self-absorbed, alcohol-drenched hedonist with a gun whereas Biden is the leader of the free world with a nuclear arsenal, but beyond that the similarities are uncanny.

The Most Popular President in US History:  Biden's 4th of July Speech Gets 10,000 Views on White House YouTube Channel.  Joe Biden, the most popular president ever that no one cares about.  Biden traveled to Michigan over the weekend and virtually no supporters lined up to greet him.  Biden's 4th of July speech got 10,000 views on the White House's YouTube channel.

Biden's 4th Of July Speech Barely Gets 10,000 Views On WH YouTube Channel.  Joseph Robinette Biden, the 46th President of the United States who won 81 million votes in the 2020 election, barely received more than 10 thousand views on the White House YouTube channel for his 4th of July speech.  Joe Biden, the most revered and popular President in the history of the United States, barely managed to get just over 10 thousand views on his 4th of July speech on the White House YouTube channel.  Biden struggled to read off the teleprompter, attempting to put words together, shouting and repeatedly coughing for a whopping 15 minutes in celebration of Independence Day.

Foreign Media Skewer Joe Biden As 'Barely Cogent,' 'Bizarre'.  While the U.S. media frequently look the other way at President Joe Biden's verbal and intellectual foibles, foreign media have questioned the president's mental acuity.  Australian reporters have lamented that "the leader of the free world" is "struggling," "barely cogent," and a "human corpse" who has sunken deep into "cognitive decline."  Those quotations come from Sky News Australia, the center-right cable news network launched in 1996 by NewsCorp Australia.  Its collection of hosts and journalists have told their growing audience what many in the U.S. media have refused to say:  Joe Biden's declining intellectual capabilities threaten all Western democracies.  In March, Sky News Australia host Cory Bernardi compared the Biden-Harris administration to a "reality show where the Democrats put up a barely cogent candidate for president just so that they could enjoy the spoils of office for four years.  And, of course, it features an all-star cast of the politically semi-lucid."

Hunter Biden paid Joe's AT&T bill and spent thousands on house repairs for him while he was Vice President, new laptop emails claim.  Hunter Biden complained that 'half' of his salary went to paying his father's bills while he was Vice President, casting doubt on the Joe's previous claims that he's never benefited from his son's business dealings.  The bills included a $190-a-month AT&T phone bill and thousands in repairs on Joe's lakeside home in Wilmington.  The payments were described in a 2010 email, when Joe Biden was earning $225,000-a-year as Vice President.  He had already made well over $100,000-a-year for decades prior as a senator and author.

The Democrat Blame Game.  Sleepy Joe Biden has spent a half-century supping at the public trough, during which time his views on critical issues proved overwhelmingly wrong.  Since Sleepy Joe moved into the White House, it has taken him and his handlers about five months to turn our optimistic, forward-moving country into one beset with crises here and abroad.  In the political jungle, Biden may fancy himself the king of beasts, but in terms of successes he is more like a Detroit Lion than a lion king.  His "roar" has been reduced to mumbling copy from a teleprompter and, in a number of bizarre instances, leaning into a mic to spout eerie gibberish in unintelligible whispers.

Replacing Joe, the vegetable.  The mental decline of Joe Biden accelerates.  How long can he function as even a puppet president?  The bigger question is:  what happens when drugs can no longer keep Joe semi-coherent?

Poll Finds Most Americans Believe 'Others' are Controlling Biden and That's Bad News for Democrats.  President Joe Biden doesn't exactly give off the impression that he's a man in charge of things.  Watching any of his speeches for more than a few minutes will lead you to believe he's a fry short of a happy meal.  His colleagues and the media can make excuses for him till the cows come home but between his outbursts, constant confusion, and controlled interactions with the public, Biden's not exactly selling us on being the decision-maker.  The Trafalgar Group wanted to see how many people aren't sold on Biden being at the front, and sure enough, they found the majority of Americans think Biden is hardly taking the lead, but instead, is being led.

Who's the boss?  Stunning numbers say Biden not running own administration.  The stumbling, bumbling gaffes that litter President Biden's public speaking these days appear to be taking their toll.  Only 36%, a new poll shows, believe he is "fully in charge" and running his own administration.  Fifty-six and a half percent say others are directing his policy and agenda, and that includes nearly 32% of the Democrats responding to the poll by Convention of the States Action, in partnership with The Trafalgar Group.  A stunning 83.6% of Republicans and even 58.4% of independents say Joe Biden isn't the one making the decisions that are coming from the White House.

Poll reveals that a solid majority of Americans believe Biden isn't calling the shots in his own presidency.  The electoral campaign implications of a new poll from the highly respected Trafalgar Group are enormous.  Trafalgar posed the question:  "Do you believe President Biden is fully executing the duties of his office?" [...] The answers reveal that the Democrats have failed to sell the public on the notion that the rapidly-fading Biden is in charge of his own presidency, except among self-identified supporters of the party.  And even there, a substantial cohort of doubters exists.

Joe Biden's Happy Things.  The Fourth of July weekend is one of those bright, smiling occasions that normally begets happiness, though in truth the White House occupant was not smiling on Friday [7/2/2021] when reporters ventured to ask him about the decision (I won't say his decision) to turn over Bagram Airfield to the Afghans after nearly 20 years, $2 trillion in taxpayer money spent, and thousands of U.S. casualties.  Question for the future:  what did we get for all that blood and treasure?  Don't answer now, just put it on your mental to-do list.  Anyway, the leader of the free world didn't want to talk about Afghanistan.  "I want to talk about happy things, man," he snapped.  The Taliban is such a downer, you know, and besides "It's Fourth of July" weekend.  "I'm going to celebrate it.  There's great things happening."  Like gasoline prices about double what they were last year?  Out-of-control inflation?  A humanitarian and national security crisis on our Southern border?  Mr. Happy did not mention those items.

Further evidence (if you need it) of Biden's increasing dementia.  [Scroll down]  When he was young, even if you disliked him, you had to concede that he had a certain breezy charm and bluff good humor.  But behind it all, always, he was a corrupt, supremely stupid, vicious man.  Now, that real man is exposed for the world to see.  Just as he was always rotten on the inside, he's now visibly rotting from the inside out.

Hunter Biden engaged in some daddy pay care.  While Joe Biden careens around the country eating ice cream and behaving like a kind, but slightly dotty grandpa, it's worth remembering the cynical way he used his son, Hunter, to generate cash for the family.  Hunter, now 51, wanted to be an artist or a writer, but he was assigned by his father the role of family breadwinner through lucrative grace-and-favor jobs and sweetheart deals facilitated by Joe's network of connections in Delaware and, later, throughout the world.  The irresistible temptations of gushing torrents of unaccountable cash would lead Hunter into a brutal addiction to crack cocaine, which he details in his memoir "Beautiful Things."  Resentful of the expectations placed on him, Hunter complained that he was forced to give half his salary to his father.  "I hope you all can do what I did and pay for everything for this entire family for 30 years," Hunter wrote in a 2019 text message to his daughter, Naomi, that was found on his abandoned laptop.

Jonathan Turley on Hunter Biden laptop disclosures: 'Greatest frame up of all time, or greatest cover up'.  Against the backdrop of more email disclosures, constitutional law expert Jonathan Turley apparently thinks that the corporate media could be a willing partner in an all-time coverup of the extent of Hunter Biden's alleged international influence pedaling while trading on his father's name.  Turley, the high-profile, fair-minded George Washington University law professor and self-described liberal, suggested that the Biden family has never disputed that validity of the alleged damning emails on Hunter Biden's laptop, and that perhaps makes the media's possible malpractice even more glaring.  The law professor implied that a binary choice is in play:  either a frameup over a coverup[.]

Biden is not up to his job's most important requirements.  Biden constantly gets facts wrong.  He confuses politicians, cities, and countries.  He regularly needs his handlers to remind him what to say.  He depends entirely on a TelePrompTer and flashcards to get him through a speech.  He often seems confused as to where he is.  During the 2020 presidential campaign, Biden mixed up Donald Trump with George W. Bush and confused his sister with his wife.  Throughout the 2020 Democratic Presidential Primaries, Biden's rivals commented on his mental decline. [...] If there is any major crisis in the world, Biden will have to lead.  He'll likely repeat his handlers' words but he will not inspire confidence.  Indeed, if he is stressed, he may not even be able to convey his handlers' message.  As long as Biden is at the helm, sensible Americans will dread what could happen.

Is Hunter Biden's art worth $500,000? Here's what a curator has to say.  When most professional artists begin their careers, they are often lucky not to starve.  This general rule, like most rules, does not apply if you are the son of the president of the United States.  Hunter Biden, the son of President Joe Biden, recently started painting and has agreed to put some of his art up for sale in a gallery, some of which may fetch as much as $500,000.  "How much of that value is due to the art itself?  That's easy:  None of it," wrote Jeffry Cudlin, professor of art curatorial studies and practice at the Maryland Institute College of Art, in an email to the Washington Examiner.  "They're fine decorative amateur work.  Hey, everybody needs a hobby!"

Democrat Senator Excited 25 People Showed Up to Greet Joe Biden in Michigan.  Biden on Saturday [7/3/2021] visited a cherry farm near Antrim County with Michigan governor Gretchen Whitmer and democrat senators Peters and Stabenow.  About 25 people lined up along the route to King Orchard to see Dementia Joe.  Democrat Senator Debbie Stabenow bragged about the 2 dozen people (probably paid staffers) lining up along the road to see Biden.  25 Biden supporters.  But he got 81 million votes.

Confused Joe Biden Takes out Notes to Answer Question on Russia.  President Joe Biden took notes out of his jacket when asked about "the most recent hack by the Russians" during an ostensibly unscripted visit to a farmer's market on Saturday in Central Lake, MI.  A woman, unseen in video of the moment, asked the president, "With the most recent hack by the Russians, would you say that this means that...?"  Biden interrupted the woman before she could complete her question.  "We're not sure it's the Russians," the president interjected.  "I got a brief while I was on the plane.  That's why I was late getting off the plane.  I got a brief.  I'll be in better shape to talk to you about it, hang on a second."  Biden then reached for and withdrew notes from his jacket pocket.

Bidens speak to mostly empty hall at teachers' union convention.  President Biden couldn't even draw a big in-person crowd at a teachers' union convention on Friday evening, telling a mostly empty hall in Washington that teachers deserve a pay raise.  Only about 50 members of leadership and staff of the National Education Association were in the cavernous hall at the Washington Convention Center when Mr. Biden and first lady Jill Biden, an educator with close ties to the NEA, took the stage.  "Hello, everyone," Mr. Biden said to laughter.  "They tell me there are a few people out there watching [online]."

Biden's pick for German ambassador is president of university that paid him nearly $1M.  President Biden's nominee to be the next ambassador to Germany is an Ivy League president whose university paid him nearly $1 million for an honorary professor gig where he was seldom seen, it was revealed Friday [7/2/2021].  University of Pennsylvania President Amy Gutmann, who has headed the Philadelphia-based institution since 2004, is the first envoy to a G-7 nation to be nominated by Biden.  If confirmed by the Senate, the 71-year-old Gutmann would be the second woman to serve as America's chief diplomat in Berlin.  (Robin Quinville has served as acting US ambassador to Germany since June of last year.)

Quid Pro Joe?  Biden's Pick for Ambassador to Germany Raises a Lot of Questions.  As we previously reported, Hunter Biden's emails revealed that when Joe Biden was vice president, Joe and Hunter used his office as a way to advance his son's business deals, even using Air Force Two to fly one of the business associates and Hunter to Mexico for a "gigantic" business deal.  Giving access to meet the big guy paid off very well for Hunter.  Even with all the emails and pictures of Joe Biden meeting with Hunter's business associates, Joe Biden still claimed during the campaign that he knew nothing about his son's business.  Imagine the nerve that takes to say that, when he knew he was doing all this and that the evidence was likely out there.

Co-President Jill Biden Thinks You're Stupid.  That's the only conclusion that I can draw after her latest commentary.  To get specific, the ambitious First Lady recently spoke to the NEA (National Education Association), a vile union that has had a large hand in keeping many schools closed for the last year.  In fact, I just wrote on them yesterday, noting that their latest demands to re-open schools are essentially impossible to meet and completely void of any scientific reasoning.  Here's a taste of the absolutely inane thought emanating from the group.  [Tweets] [...] These union leaders and their members do not want to return to work, and they see the current circumstances as a chance to further milk taxpayers.  Despite all that, Jill Biden wants you to know that American families aren't mad about that at all.  Rather, they see the teachers who are members of the NEA as "champions."

Hunter Biden used Joe's VP perks to pursue deal with Carlos Slim.  Hunter Biden used the perks of the vice presidency — parties, meetings with Joe Biden and flights on Air Force Two — to pursue business deals with Mexican billionaire Carlos Slim while his father was in office, records show.  Hunter's involvement with Slim, at one time the world's richest man, commenced soon after a White House state dinner the magnate attended in May 2010, along with Joe Biden and his wife, Jill, to honor Mexican President Felipe Calderon.  The diary on Hunter's abandoned laptop shows he and Slim were both guests at a State Department luncheon during Calderon's visit, which was hosted by his father and then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.  Spanish tenor Placido Domingo also reportedly attended.

New Emails Raise New Allegations of Influence Peddling By Hunter Biden And Direct Knowledge Of President Biden.  We have previously discussed the concerted and often embarrassing blackout in the media on stories involving Hunter Biden's influence peddling during his father's tenure as Vice President.  That includes the burying of the laptop story and the growing contradictions over his father's denial of any knowledge or involvement in his shady business dealings.  Even recent reports that Hunter may have paid prostitutes with his father's account were blacked out by mainstream media which exhaustively pursued any story related to the Trump children and their dealings and life styles.  Now, however, there is a major allegation that Hunter used access to his father to seal previously unknown deals with Mexican businessmen, including Carlos Slim.  A picture shows Hunter with the businessmen in the Vice President residence with his father.

Why Are These Kamala Harris Stories Happening Right Now?  Harris really wants to run for President in 2024, but she can't make a move until Biden decides not to run, if he makes that decision.  That keeps her from being able to build a campaign team and getting in contact with donors and allies.  But, Biden is still in the game as of now, and that is keeping her from being able to make any moves.  Now, there's a lot of speculation in what I am about to write, but what I mentioned earlier about something shaping up?  These stories seem to point to a struggle in the White House over the future of the Biden administration.  What is really bad for the Democrats here is that this debate is taking place just six months into the man's first term.  Biden is in a pretty weak position right now.  He isn't really the commander of his own agenda.

Biden Hosted Son's Business Associates in His VP Office and That Wasn't the Worst of It.  We've reported before what a lie it was that when Joe Biden said that he knew nothing about his son Hunter's business or business associates.  That indeed, Joe had met some of Hunter's foreign associates, that it appeared they used Hunter as a conduit by which they could actual make that connection with his father.  But it isn't only that Joe Biden was lying when about not knowing about his son's business, contrary to what he said.  According to the Daily Mail, Joe Biden actually met with some of them in his vice presidential office, as Hunter Biden's laptop reveals.  Joe flew Hunter and one of Hunter's business associates, Jeff Cooper, on Air Force 2 for a meeting in Mexico City in 2016 for a 'flippin gigantic' business deal.  Emails even indicate that Biden met business associates of Hunter's in the White House.

Ouch! Confused Joe Biden Embarrasses Himself Again.  Crazy Joe Biden strikes again.  This time, it was at a bill signing event that included House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA), and Rep. Jesús "Chuy" Gracia (D-IL).  First, Biden slurred the title of the bill.  Then, he called Waters by the wrong name, referring to her as "Maxine Walters."  And it only got worse from there.  When Biden saw Waters, he said, "Senator, I hope.  You think I'm kidding.  I'm not."  She's not a senator and, at 82 years old, she is very unlikely to be considering running for Senate and leaving her safe seat in the House, which she's held for decades.

Biden Executes Perhaps the Most Pathetic Brag in Presidential History.  I've written several times in the last few months about the skyrocketing inflation that middle America is enduring right now.  The costs on some of the most commonly bought items have jumped, including food, building materials, used cars, and of course, gasoline and other types of energy.  With that very negative news really setting in with voters, the Biden administration has decided to go on the offensive.  In doing so, they've executed perhaps the most pathetic brag in presidential history.  [Tweet]  I'm not sure how the Farm Bureau calculates prices, but anyone that's been to the grocery store lately is going to be highly skeptical.  There's also the consumer price index to look at, which shows that prices are up across the board.

Another smoking gun about Joe Biden's lies and machinations for Hunter.  While the mainstream media in America is lavishing love on that frump Hausfrau, Jill Biden, and reveling in the fact that, after spending millions of dollars, New York's prosecutors were able to find some alleged, marginal tax malfeasance by Trump's corporation (not Trump), Britain's Daily Mail is doggedly sifting through the treasure trove that is Hunter Biden's hard drive.  The latest revelation shows that Biden, contrary to his denials during the campaign, used his position as Vice President to actively further Hunter's "business" deals — in this case, a "flippin gigantic" one in Mexico.  We all remember how, during the second presidential debate, Joe Biden emphatically denied having anything to do with business deals involving his son Hunter, a corrupt, child-abandoning, widow-shtupping, prostitute-frolicking, drug-taking, and otherwise all-around disgusting human being.

Top 10 Examples of Leftist and Democratic Racism.  [#6] Candidate Joe Biden:  "Poor kids are just as bright and just as talented as white kids."  — When then-candidate Biden made this statement almost two years ago, the left predictably brushed it off as "That's just Joe being Joe," and simply chalked it up as just another Biden gaffe.  But it wasn't.  A Biden 'gaffe' is when he thinks he's in Vermont but is actually in New Hampshire, or when he asks a wheelchair-bound politician to stand up.  But when Ole' Joe states that "Poor kids are just as bright and talented as white kids," we're getting a clear look into his half-empty brain and his attitudes towards race.  In President Biden's mind, white kids are talented and bright, and poor kids are black.  And it's his job to make sure you understand that those within those two categories are equal.  At the risk of being scolded by our Department of Redundancy Department, can you imagine the uproar if Donald Trump had made this statement?  [Video clip]

The incredible shrinking Kamala Harris.  The cognitive decline of the Elected Official Formerly Known as Joe Biden is plain to see.  The old Joe was a glib glad-hander who played the game as well as anyone.  He could explain without missing a beat his devout Catholicism and his simultaneous support for abortion on demand.  He was also quite electable, to a point. [...] The frail, wandering Biden who emerged from his basement for a mini-campaign sometimes resembled an audio-animatronic replica of the veteran pol. [...] The mainstream media, propaganda arm of the Democrat Party, would haul Joe across the finish line by praising manufactured virtues and burying ugly truths.  The loyal or clueless would pull the Biden lever.  Dead people and photocopies would provide the winning margin.  Then, after a dignified interval, he could "develop some disease and say he'd have to resign," as he told us plainly, on camera with Harris.  That card could be played whenever needed.  Let the con run too long, and the public would get wise.  Joe was certainly not up to the task of his new office.  When he repeated aloud the whispered directive from his earpiece to "salute the Marines" upon entering the White House on inauguration day, we knew it wouldn't get better.  Six months of word salads and vacant stares from the leader of the free world have removed any doubt.

Joe Biden entertained Hunter's Mexican billionaire business associates in the vice president's office in 2014.  Joe Biden entertained his son's business associates in the vice president's office, including Mexican billionaires Carlos Slim and Miguel Alemán Velasco.  The then-vice president also flew Hunter and his partner Jeff Cooper on Air Force 2 to Mexico City in 2016 where Hunter arranged to meet Alemán's son for meetings over a 'flippin gigantic' business deal.  The revelations, laid bare in photographs and emails on Hunter's abandoned laptop, are the latest in a growing body of evidence calling into question the president's claim that he never spoke about business with Hunter.

Laptop shows Joe Biden attended meetings between Hunter and his Mexican business partners.  At some point the Biden White House will have to confront evidence of the president's involvement in his son Hunter's shady overseas business dealings.  Joe Biden insists he never knew a thing about Hunter's lucrative deals in countries where he wielded influence as vice president.  But evidence abounds on Hunter's abandoned laptop of Joe's involvement.  For instance, Joe invited Hunter's foreign associates to breakfast meetings at his vice-presidential residence and to his office in the White House, the laptop shows.  He took his son on Air Force Two to countries where Hunter was doing deals, and on at least one occasion, included one of Hunter's business partners on the trip.  Among more than 100 events scheduled in Hunter's diary at the VP's residence at the Naval Observatory in Washington, DC, there are meetings which appear to overlap with Hunter's business interests.

The Top Ten Pending Eruptions.  [#10] Hunter Biden:  He's at the end of the list because what happens with him is not likely to directly impact any of us, but he's such a shocking collection of immoralities and corruptions that we all know deep in our bones that such nastiness cannot be condoned in a reasonable, prosperous, free society.  Hardly a week goes by without some new scandal surfacing, and each seems worse than the last.  Now he's selling "paintings" as a money-laundering scheme.  He and his slimy doings are bad enough by themselves, but he's the president's son.  Sooner or later something has to be done about him and about the part his father has played in all of it.  [#9]  Speaking of [Joe Biden], something is also going to have to be done about Joe's mental state, but that is complicated by the fact that Kamala's mental acuity is not much better.  She's not suffering from dementia per se, but I suspect that she's never been all that bright.  And Pelosi is next in line and her mental problems border on insanity.  So, what we will do about this mortifying state of affairs is going to require some divine intervention — and soon — have you heard him whisper/hiss his way through a press briefing?  Yikes.

The Concierge of Decline.  Joe Biden's handlers and media friends continue to delude nobody but themselves that his legacy will land him in the history books alongside FDR and LBJ as a beloved, era-defining Progressive hero.  His supposedly moderate priorities — infrastructure, family policy, and voting "rights" — have readily been exposed as deceitful partisanship and wasteful graft, and laden with power grabs so objectionable a senator of his own party had to distance himself to save face.  Further complicating his aspirational legacy, Biden is beholden to an eye-popping amount of dark money from leftist sources that propelled him to the White House in the first place. [...] As Biden's early months lurched from one failure to stand up for our country to the next, it became clear that he is indeed era-defining, but not in the way his consiglieres would have hoped.  Weak and negligent, derelict in the most basic duties a leader has to his people, licking ice cream to delight reporters as his homeland falls apart, Joe Biden is happily at your service as the concierge of decline.

Biden can't even do brief remarks welcoming an ally without reading notecards.  A friend emailed me the less than 5 minute video below of President Biden seated next to the President of Israel, Reuven Rivlin, welcoming him to the White House. [...] While Biden did look up from his notes from time to time, he must have been worried that he'd "get into trouble" with the people whose wishes he carries out, because he kept [looking] down and reading most of the time.  This was not glancing at notes to refresh his mind about key points.  This [was] reading his script.

As Biden bumbles, the question is Who's really running the country?  [Scroll down]  Joe Biden, though, is the granddad of the country, and when you listen to Granddad, sometimes you wonder whether it's safe for him to be near a pair of scissors.  No big deal, though; it's just that there's this guy who looks like he'd have trouble using Google Maps and he happens to be in charge of all the nukes.  On the rare occasions when Biden's staff let him out of the dayroom to be seen on camera, pre-selected members of the press ask him the gentlest conceivable questions and then wind up cringing anyway as Biden gives one unnerving display after another.  Xi Jinping and Vladimir Putin must watch these press conferences giggling uncontrollably at their good fortune:  Suddenly the world's greatest power is in the hands of a slightly dazed-looking fellow who seems like he is always just waking up from heavy anesthesia.  On Thursday, Biden three times bent over and, taking care to set his eyes to "crazy," whispered into the microphone as though he was auditioning to play a stalker calling from inside the house to terrorize a baby-sitter in a 1980s TV movie.

The Three-Way Squeeze.  Here is why the "Joe Biden" regime only has a few months to live:  it is caught in a squeeze between some of the greatest lies in world history, and they're all unraveling now.  Anyway, "Joe Biden" is not really functioning as president of the US; he's just the doddering, photo-op front-man for a kind of politburo centered around Barack Obama, and that group lives in terror of being found-out, which it will be, despite its capture of the traditional news and social media.  Big Lie No. 1 is actually a whole bundle of lies surrounding the Covid-19 pandemic. [...] Big Lie No. 2 is that "Joe Biden" won the Nov 3, 2020 presidential election. [...] The third "Big Lie" is that the US economy is "recovering" from the Covid-19 disruptions.

Joe Biden Has Already Called a Lid on His Olympics Appearance.  In a move that should surprise no one, Joe Biden will not be attending the Tokyo Olympics as a representative of American leadership.  The Japanese outlet The Yomiuri Shimbun is reporting that Biden will skip the ceremonies, even though it is typical of American leadership to attend such events.  The Biden administration is instead looking to send First Lady Jill Biden in his stead.

White House Mystery:  Who's the 'They' Giving Joe Biden Orders?  We have an intriguing and rather disturbing mystery going on with our current president.  Someone behind the scenes — we don't know who — is telling Joe Biden what to do.  He even acknowledges that, referring often to an unidentified "they" who gave him a list of people to call on, who told him something to say or something not to do.  "They're going to get mad at me," he says.  And a sympathetic D.C. press corps is stunningly uncurious.  No one is asking the leader of the free world who this person or persons are, instructing him to do or not do things or get angry at him for taking too many questions.  It's eerie, even creepy, like a dramatic movie scene where U.S. Special Operators break into a foreign prison to rescue a scientist kidnapped for the secrets stored in his mind.  And he looks up at them with drugged eyes and says, "I can't go with you.  They told me to stay here."

If Joe Goes, What Next?  Everywhere other than in Big Media newsrooms, Americans speak openly of President Joe Biden's cognitive decline and wonder whether he can last out his four-year term. [...] Lacking access to the White House, I take my cues from presidential history and the extensive research I have done on Barack Obama, including his presumed third term through proxy Joe Biden.  One historical given is that timing matters.  During the 2020 campaign, having finessed Bernie Sanders out of the race, Democratic leaders knew they had to ride the seemingly moderate Biden as far as he could take them.  With the help of the media, they were largely able to conceal the erosion of Biden's mental facilities.  Unless the polls show an impending disaster, Democrats have no more motive to dump Biden before the 2022 election than they did in 2020.  After the election, party leaders will have a decision to make.  If they hold majorities in both Houses, they can put that decision off indefinitely.

Obama and the Broken Nation He Made Come Of Age.  Youthful leftism is anarchic.  It's CHAZ, BLM, and Antifa.  It's open air heroin markets, smashed store windows, and political assassinations.  Turning that anarchy into collectivism requires hysterical propaganda and rallies that appear anarchic, but are actually tightly controlled, ideas that seem edgy, but are actually the work of men who were born during the age of the steam.  If you think Bernie's old, Karl Marx celebrated his 203rd birthday in May.  Obama's policies have aged as badly as Marx, Biden, or their front man.  But instead of moderating as they grow older, they only grow more radical.  Obama equivocated on gay marriage, while Biden entirely erases the existence of women by calling them "birthing people".  Obama covertly weaponized the government against conservatives, while Biden is doing it openly.  Everything from election rigging through H.R. 1 to indoctrinating every government employee with critical race theory is happening more openly and blatantly under Biden.

Why Should Anyone Trust Biden After This?  On Friday [6/25/2021], President Joe Biden and the Democrats thought they had pulled a fast one on Republicans when the president announced he would support the bipartisan infrastructure deal that had been hashed out over several weeks of negotiation.  But he said he would only sign the deal if his gargantuan "American Families Plan" was also agreed to using the reconciliation process.  In other words, Biden said he wouldn't sign a deal he had just said he would support.  Republicans saw that as a bait-and-switch tactic, which it surely was.  And they reacted angrily.

Hunter Biden Invested in The Pandemic Firm Collaborating With EcoHealth And The Wuhan Lab.  Rosemont Seneca Technology Partners — an investment firm led by Hunter Biden — was a lead financial backer of Metabiota, a pandemic tracking and response firm that has partnered with Peter Daszak's EcoHealth Alliance and the Wuhan Institute of Virology.  Rosemont Seneca Technology Partners (RSTP) was an offshoot of Rosemont Capital, an investment fund founded by Biden and John Kerry's stepson in 2009, that counted Biden as a Managing Director.  Among the companies listed on archived versions of the firm's portfolio is Metabiota, a San Francisco-based company that purports to detect, track, and analyze emerging infectious diseases, The National Pulse can reveal.

Joe Biden Conflates Tuskegee Airman With Tuskegee Syphilis Study.  President Joe Biden on Thursday blamed vaccine hesitancy among black Americans on the past experimentation by the U.S. government on the Tuskegee Airman, conflating the famed World War II pilots with the Tuskegee Syphilis Study.  "The reason why it's been harder to get African Americans, initially, to get vaccinated because they are used to being experimented on — the Tuskegee Airmen and others," Biden said. [...] This isn't the first time Biden has conflated the two Tuskegee events.  During an interview with YouTuber Jackie Aina last month, the president once again got his history wrong.

Joe Biden picks second DOJ nominee with Hunter Biden connection.  President Joe Biden has, for a second time, selected a nominee with ties to his son Hunter Biden for a top post at the Justice Department, picking a former longtime partner at the law firm where his son worked for years and that was involved in helping the younger Biden in his business dealings with Burisma.  Biden announced on Friday [6/25/2021] that he had nominated Hampton Dellinger, a Yale Law School graduate and former deputy attorney general in North Carolina, to be assistant attorney general for DOJ's Office of Legal Policy.  Dellinger's LinkedIn indicates he founded Hampton Dellinger PLLC in November after working as a partner at Boies, Schiller, and Flexner from May 2013 through last year.  Hunter Biden was a counsel at the same firm, starting there in 2010 and reportedly leaving in 2017.  In 2014, the president's son landed the Ukrainian energy giant as a client for the firm and took a lucrative position on its board.

Joe Biden's and Kamala Harris's very weird day.  [Scroll down]  When Biden was sold as "normal," that was the real con.  Biden was a known quantity.  He was the man who palled around with segregationists, constantly made racist remarks, suffered from chronic foot-in-mouth, used his debauched son and other family members to funnel millions in dirty money to himself, and constantly pawed and sniffed little girls in public.  Biden is not normal.  And now that Biden is almost certainly suffering from dementia, his tenuous grasp on normalcy is diminishing even more.  Having reached an agreement with the Senate about the infrastructure, Biden gave a brief press conference.  That led to a viral video of super-Biden weirdness.  The video making the rounds cuts off the question asked of Biden, which was apparently an ordinary one regarding how much money went to COVID relief.  What matters is Biden's response: [...]

Joe Biden Vows Not to Sign Infrastructure Deal Without 'Tandem' Bill for More Taxes and 'Human Infrastructure'.  President Joe Biden said Thursday [6/24/2021] he would not sign a bipartisan infrastructure deal with moderate Republican senators without an additional partisan funding package for entitlements.  "I control that.  If they don't come, I'm not signing it.  Real simple," Biden said, when reporters asked how he planned to get both measures through Congress at the same time.  Biden spoke to reporters after he met with moderate Senate Republicans and Democrats and announced a deal on infrastructure.

Bishops to Biden:  There is no such thing as 'private' Catholicism.  When Joe Biden was sworn in as America's 46th president, he laid his hand on an ancient Douay-Rheims family Bible, a translation made by Catholics in France, where they'd taken refuge from the Reformation across the Channel.  In doing so, the new president reminded some 40 million viewers of a truth he may now prefer to forget: namely, that the Catholic Church is inherently political, and faith in her teachings is never a merely private matter.  For decades, American Catholic politicians insisted the opposite was the case.  For generations of Democrats, especially, the faith meant dated jokes about stern nuns and sentimentality about Notre Dame football.  Catholicism was a cultural institution, quaint but lovable, like a bowling league.  The Roman church, in this view, required little of its members, certainly not serious adherence to her moral precepts — about the sanctity of unborn human life, for example.

Why Are They Woke?  There are lots of reasons why wokeism spread like wildfire once America lost its collective mind during the pandemic, quarantine, self-induced recession, and rioting of 2020.  Wokeism was never really about racism, sexism, or other -isms.  Instead, for some, it illustrated a psychological pathology of projection: fobbing one's own concrete prejudices onto others in order to alleviate or mask them. [...] Joe Biden about every two weeks lectures America on its racism.  And he unleashed the bureaucracies of the federal government to root out mythical white supremacist conspiracies.  Does Medieval penance explain Biden's fixation on systemic racism?  After all, when he condemns anonymous white racists, does his outrage mitigate his son Hunter's habitual use of the N-word and anti-Asian riffs?  No Washington politico has compiled a longer record of racialist put downs than Joe Biden.  So apparently, the more Biden hunts for a white racist under every bed, the less necessary it becomes to look in the mirror or at least to beg his son Hunter to knock off his racist slurs.

Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi Wear Masks to Funeral Service Despite Being Fully Vaccinated.  President Joe Biden and a number of Democrats were spotted wearing masks at a funeral service for former Sen. John Warner (R-VA) on Wednesday [6/23/2021], even though they are fully vaccinated.  The president, First Lady Jill Biden, and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) were spotted wearing masks at the service, as well as Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-VT).  Some advocates of the vaccines criticize vaccinated people who keep wearing masks, arguing it raises doubts about their effectiveness.  The Centers for Disease Controls have advised that fully vaccinated people can resume activities as normal both inside and outside, except for separate regulations for those using public transportation and airplanes.

The Editor says...
Do vaccines work, or do they not?  Are they still wearing masks because they got injected with sterile water instead of an experimental vaccine?  That would be the simplest explanation.  The second-simplest explanation would be that the mask is a political symbol — like a Nazi armband — rather than a medical device.

Now Even Dems Are Telling Those 'Awkward' Joe Biden Stories.  We've reported repeatedly on the issues with Joe Biden's confusion and incoherence based mainly on the videos we've seen and statements he's made.  But beyond that, one would have to imagine there's a lot going on that we're not seeing because media isn't hearing about it or isn't reporting it.  What must the folks behind the scenes, like the Democrats and Republicans who have to deal with Joe Biden, be seeing and saying about it?

Is Joe Biden Catholic?  [Scroll down]  In short, Biden practices Catholicism through private rituals at home or in the sanctuary but practices the religion of leftist progressivism in public.  The Catholic faith does not speak to his actions.  Again, Biden echoes JFK, who said, "For contrary to common newspaper usage, I am not the Catholic candidate for president.  I am the Democratic Party's candidate for president, who happens also to be a Catholic.  I do not speak for my church on public matters, and the church does not speak for me.  In other words, Christianity does not inform or even speak to Biden when it comes to public policy, domestic or foreign.  Hence the schizophrenia and resultant chaos and confusion accompanying his policies.

Secret Service swooped on Hunter after he accidentally paid Russian prostitute $25K.  Hotel bills show Hunter then moved to a $470-per-night room at The Jeremy in West Hollywood later that month, where he hired another escort while under the protection of two recently retired Secret Service agents.  And messages saved on the laptop show Joe Biden might have inadvertently been the person actually paying the bill for the wild week, according to the messages obtained by the [New York] Post.

Angry Leftist Complains That Pedophile Priests Can Receive Communion but Moloch Worshipping Joe Biden Can't.  I've been sort of shocked at the reaction of the Democrat Party, a party that is, at best, pagan though usually godless, to the debate within the US Conference Catholic Bishops (USCCB) over a teaching document, not a policy document, on standards for admission to Communion. [...] The Democrats fear that the document will, rightfully, be used to point out to the voters in districts represented by "Catholic" Democrats that those Democrats are about as Catholic as your average gerbil and have been trading off a professed Catholic identity for the sake of deceiving voters.  As I noted a couple of days ago, this whole spectacle is unnecessary as Canon Law and the Catechism of the Catholic Church are clear and unambiguous on the subject of abortion (and on support for homosexual "marriage").  To support abortion, particularly by a public official, carries with it the automatic penalty of excommunication.

It's Beginning to Look Like Enemy Action.  Dong Jingwei is a Chinese defector working with the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA).  He served as Vice Minister of State Security in the Chinese Ministry of Defense.  Before defecting, he was responsible for the counterintelligence efforts in China.  He was in a position to know about all things "espionage" in China and is perhaps the highest-level Chinese defector the U.S. has ever had.  Even though the legacy media is playing it down, this is a big deal. [...] Dong provided copies of Hunter Biden's laptop hard drives to the DIA. Granted, there's not much that's secret about that laptop anymore.  But isn't China verifying their possession of those drives kind of like a blackmailer showing his victim pictures of himself in bed with an underage girl?  How incriminating is that picture when information from Hunter's laptop is combined with financial records which the Chinese surely have?  Maybe there's more than one underage girl in that photo.

Catholic bishops push for pro-choice president to be denied communion.  White House press secretary Jen Psaki dodged a reporter's question on Monday [6/21/2021] whether President Joe Biden believes a 15-week-old unborn baby is a living person.  'Does the president believe that a 15-week-old unborn baby is a human being?' the reporter asked, a possible reference to arguments the Supreme Court is scheduled to hear in the fall on Mississippi's ban on abortions past the 15-week mark of pregnancy.  Psaki replied:  'Are you asking me if the president supports a woman's right to choose?  He does.'

Did Joe inadvertently pay for Hunter Biden's wild night at Chateau Marmont?  It's May 2018, and Robert Hunter Biden is trawling through his favorite Los Angeles escort sites.  He orders "Yanna," a 24-year-old Russian native from Emerald Fantasy Girls.  "Russian, Green Eyes, Thin Brunette, an elite courtesan" is Yanna's pitch, along with a menu of sex acts.  "Hi, My name is Rob.  I'm staying at Chateau Marmont.  Are you available now?"  Yanna goes to the cottage.  He smokes crack, they drink vodka, have sex, make porn. [...] All of these messages, all of these pictures, are saved on Hunter Biden's laptop, which he treats like a diary, storing every email and text conversation, his financial records, and his copious selfies.  A year later, Hunter will forget the laptop at a Delaware repair shop, and it will end up in the hands of the FBI — and The [New York] Post.

Hunter Biden's Scandals [are] Far, Far, Far Worse Than Any of Trump's.  There is Bernie Madoff-level government corruption in Washington.  There is Clinton Foundation-level grift in politics.  And there is Anthony Weiner-level sleaze wherever the media, government, and politics collide.  And then there is Hunter Biden. [...] [S]omehow there is this religious hysteria among the media to cover up his misdeeds no matter what he gets caught doing.  Hunter Biden uses incendiary, racist, anti-black and anti-Asian language casually with family and colleagues.  It would be enough to destroy a political career or get a child kicked out of school.  But Hunter Biden?  Hardly a peep.  Hunter Biden gets caught using his father's powerful position as vice president of the United States to secure lucrative contracts with international concerns — including our global adversaries.  No big deal.

The Truth:  Biden is Supposed to Deny Himself Communion.  In the controversy over whether Joe Biden and other pro-prenatal-infanticide politicians should be denied Communion — a story now that the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops is drafting a "teaching document" about the meaning of the Sacrament — some Democrats are tacitly indicating that they consider church attendance a ploy and Communion a prop.  They're signaling that they have no respect for the Church — even as they imply that receiving Communion from it is so important.  Denying oneself Communion isn't just a Polish thing.  When a woman close to me who ceased following Church teaching decades ago occasionally attends Mass, she reflexively refrains from receiving Communion.  She's no theologian, but she knows the rules.

The Shakespearean Father-Son Tragedy of the Biden Family.  Joe was a man of boundless ambition and self-regard, elected to the Senate in his twenties, full of quick-tongued Irish blarney, able to talk at any length without tiring, convinced that he could become president in his forties as the young voice of the Baby Boom generation (despite being four years their senior).  He flew too high, and his wings melted.  His campaign and national reputation were immolated by his serial fabulism and belligerence with the press, making him a laughingstock on late-night TV in the innocent days before Bill Clinton and Donald Trump redefined dishonesty.  Biden returned to the Senate, where he had been since the Nixon Administration and was practically part of the furniture.  Twenty years later, pushing seventy, he ran again and got steamrolled.  He was visibly thrilled to be chosen for the vice presidency.

Biden's Policies Feed a Criminal Monopoly.  Mexican criminal cartels — not U.S. border communities, nor illegal immigrants — are the beneficiaries of President Joe Biden's open border policies.  Biden's neglect of border security is feeding the money-making machine of the Mexican cartels, a criminal enterprise that exploits immigrants by taking their money — and sometimes their lives.  "[The cartels] have the northern border of Mexico sealed," Jay Whetten, a rancher residing in Cochise County, Arizona, told me in an interview.  "Nobody comes through that border illegally without their authorization."  In May 2021, Border Patrol encounters with illegal immigrants from the Mexican border increased 674% as compared to May 2020, demonstrating the magnitude of the increase in business for Mexican cartels.  And, according to a veteran Department of Homeland Security law enforcement officer, these are only the crossings of which Border Patrol is aware.

Nepotism abounds in Biden administration.  Soon after becoming president, Joe Biden promised that no member of his family would be involved in the federal government.  It was an easy promise for Biden to make considering all the money his son and brother had already made off of Joe's name and office in the private sector.  You can't get rich in the federal government like you can peddling influence in countries like Ukraine and China.  Still, the federal government isn't a bad place in which to make a buck and enhance a resume.  Thus, senior members of the Biden administration are finding places in government for their children, spouses, and siblings.

Biden Declares War On America.  Joe Biden entered the Oval Office with no mandate of any kind.  The Senate is deadlocked.  Democrats in the House hold a razor-thin majority.  Joe himself is widely considered by many Americans to be an illegitimate President who took power based on widespread electoral fraud.  Under these circumstances one might normally anticipate four years of standing pat, playing it safe and steering toward the middle.  These, however, are not normal times.  Biden's administration is under the control of zealots and insurrectionists bent on transforming America and making revolutionary change.  What you have seen to date, radical as it has been, has been only the beginning.

White House insists it has 'highest ethical standards' of any administration amid criticism of family hires.  White House press secretary Jen Psaki, responding to reports of alleged nepotism in the Biden White House, said on Monday [6/21/2021] that the Biden administration has higher ethics standards than any other presidential administration ever.  "Let me say first that we have the highest ethical standards of any administration in history," Psaki said, speaking in Trumpian superlative.  "A number of ethics officials have conveyed that and we're proud of that.  We've also staffed up at an unprecedented pace and this is the most diverse administration in American history.  So we certainly expect that everyone will abide by those high ethics standards.  It applies in how we operate it also applies in how hiring is done."  Psaki — whose sister was appointed a senior adviser in the Department of Health and Human Services in March, Fox News reported earlier this month — was not asked a follow-up question on the topic.

Hunter Biden's close relationship with Blue Star consulting firm under federal investigation for its involvement with Burisma is revealed in emails.  Hunter Biden may have had a far closer relationship with a DC consultancy under federal investigation for alleged illegal lobbying than its CEO implied when she testified under oath, emails reveal.  The emails bring into question sworn statements given to Congress by the Washington firm Blue Star Strategies co-founder and CEO, Karen Tramontano.  Blue Star was dragged into the political firestorm around Hunter's involvement with Ukrainian gas firm Burisma in 2019 when it emerged that the company hired the Washington, DC lobbying shop to improve the image of its owner, Mykola Zlochevsky, who has been accused of corruption in Ukraine and investigated by British authorities.

The Biden No-Go Zones.  In American journalism, there are supposed to be some clear, nonnegotiable third-rails.  One is zero tolerance for overtly racist language and comportment among our movers and shakers. [...] Another no-go zone is any hint of contextualizing sexual harassment or assault. [...] A third zero-tolerance zone is any hint of presidential debility. [...] Finally, lying, fibbing, and even presidential exaggeration are deemed intolerable — or so we are told by the media.  It does not matter that the newsroom is currently one of the great purveyors of untruth, as we saw in the Russian collusion hoax, the dubious Wuhan wet-market narrative, or the yarn about the Lafayette Square militarization to green-light a Trump photo-op. [...] Yet it is arguable that while no other president in modern memory has trespassed more egregiously on these no-go areas than Joe Biden, he has received no criticism for his transgressions.

Are We Stuck with Biden?  It was widely believed, and not without evidence, that the media, Big Tech, and other Democratic actors were pushing Biden into the White House with the hope that he could be replaced if certain developments occurred — that is, if his failing mental condition or corrupt past made his continued occupation of the Oval Office problematic.  Certainly, there has been abundant evidence that Biden's mental lapses and incoherent speech patterns have grown worse since his election.  Further, incriminating information about the illegal behavior of Joe's son Hunter and his own deep involvement in Hunter's financial dealings with foreign government keep popping up, no matter how hard Democratic lapdogs in the media work to suppress such revelations.  One might think the other player in what Biden himself has described as a "co-presidency" would be rapidly moving forward in media- induced public attention as a successor in the near or middle term.  Why have the media failed to sell Kamala Harris to their viewers as someone ready to jump into Joe's shoes, if his advancing debilitation required it?

Joe Biden Is Betraying Our Military.  [Scroll down]  Joe Biden is not known as a supporter of the military.  Robert Gates, who served presidents of both parties as Defense Secretary, has written of Biden's frequent warnings as vice president to Barack Obama that Pentagon brass was not trustworthy.  But Biden also dispatched as climate-threat messenger the vice president, the woman with the notorious cackle who's a single heartbeat from becoming leader of the free world.  He sent her to speak to graduates at the Naval Academy.  She told a military audience a lame but enthusiastic, politically correct story to deliver the same looming climate disaster tale.  "Just ask any Marine today," Kamala Harris said, "would she rather carry 20 pounds of batteries or a rolled-up solar panel, and I am positive she will tell you a solar panel — and so would he."  One person laughed.  Harris herself.  The forced PC message went over like those 20 pounds of batteries among new officers, who don't get to choose what packs they carry anyway.

The Editor says...
Ms. Harris's speech was probably written by someone who has never served in the military.

BlackRock in The White House.  With Joe Biden in the White House you can expect to hear the name "Blackrock" in the headlines connected to a variety of issues from real estate purchasing to green energy projects with massive domestic and international investments.  BlackRock, Inc. (together with its subsidiaries) is a massive publicly traded multinational investment firm with over $8.68 trillion in assets under management [December 31, 2020 financial statement] in more than 100 countries across the globe.  To say that Blackrock is invested in globalism, climate change and leftist politics, would be a severe understatement.

After Meeting With Russian President Vladimir Putin Joe Biden Freezes Military Assistance to Ukraine.  President Donald Trump was impeached under the false pretense of withholding military assistance from Ukraine (he never did).  Intelligence Community operative Lt. Col Alexander Vindman testified to congress that President Trump's decision to pause military assistance to Ukraine was evidence of some suspicious relationship between President Trump and Russian President Putin. [...] Fast forward a little more than a year, Joe Biden meets with Putin, gets eviscerated and embarrassed by the diplomatic smack-down from the Russian President, and suddenly Joe Biden is freezing formerly approved military assistance for Ukraine.  IMPEACH!

Democrats Go to War With the Catholic Church.  Because we don't have more important issues going on in the world like out of control inflation, a floundering economy, China rising, Joe Biden's brain-melting, or a border crisis, Democrats have decided it's time to go to war with the Catholic Church. [...] The background on this is that Catholic Bishops have been convening on the issue of denying communion to heretical Democrat politicians.  That would include Joe Biden, who is rabidly pro-abortion. [...] In regards to the Catholic Church, their doctrine denotes that someone who supports abortion is disqualifying themselves from the Eucharist.  Now, whether a person agrees with that or not is irrelevant.  If someone doesn't like how Catholics do things, they can go start their own religion, correct?  Regardless, it's absolutely asinine to ask a 2,000-year-old church to bend to the political wants of modern Democrats.

Feeble Biden Spends Another Weekend at Delaware Basement Amid Calls For Him to Take Cognitive Test.  Joe Biden barely worked on Friday [6/18/2021] and left Washington DC to go hide in his Delaware basement for the weekend.  Biden just returned from his first foreign trip where he spent 8 days in 3 different countries.  78-year-old Joe Biden looked weak on the world stage, stumbled his way through pressers and spoke gibberish in meetings with foreign heads of state.  Biden was in such poor shape overseas that Trump's White House doctor-turned Congressman, Ronny Jackson and 13 other House Republicans are calling on Biden to take a cognitive test.

Levin: Biden, Military Leaders 'Promoting The Enemy' with Critical Race Theory.  On Thursday [6/7/2021], conservative talk show host Mark Levin delivered a monologue addressing the inclusion of "How to Be an Antiracist" by Ibram X. Kendi in the Chief of Naval Operations Professional Reading Program.  Levin said on FNC's "Hannity" that the Democratic Party is "seeking to universalize and devour all of those who disagree with it."  He noted critical race theory such as Kendi's book derives from Marxism and seeks to destroy the existing society.

What Biden Did to Ukraine Is Worse than What Trump Did.  President Joe Biden's administration allegedly suspended $100 million in "lethal" aid to Ukraine ahead of his summit this week with Russian President Vladimir Putin.  Without denying that allegation directly, White House Press Secretary said Friday that the administration gave $150 million in aid — including "lethal" aid — to Ukraine last week, and had spent the amount appropriated by Congress.

Obama's ethics chief says Biden is [flouting] integrity standards with a string of family-related hires in the administration.  A former ethics chief in the Obama administration has accused President Joe Biden of thumbing his nose at government ethics with the prevalence of family ties among his administration's hires. [...] The scrutiny on hiring practices was triggered in part by the Treasury Department's announcement on Monday that it was hiring J.J. Ricchetti, son of Biden counselor Steve Ricchetti, leading to accusations of nepotism.  J.J. Ricchetti, a recent college graduate with no other experience listed on his department bio, will be a special assistant to the Treasury's office of legislative affairs.

Joe Biden Just Did What the Democrats Impeached Donald Trump For.  Good news, everyone.  Freezing lethal aid to Ukraine in order to thwart Russia is now good again.  All it took was Donald Trump leaving office. [...] When was that aid frozen?  You guessed it, right after Biden met with Vladamir Putin.  Prior to that meeting, the Russian Defense Minister had said they would pull troops back that had been stationed near the Ukrainian border.  That hasn't actually happened, though, so why would Biden make this move after meeting with Putin?

GOP lawmakers, led by ex-White House doc, ask Biden to take cognitive test.  More than a dozen Republican House members, led by former White House doctor Ronny Jackson, asked President Biden Thursday to undergo a cognitive test and release the results "so the American people know the full mental and intellectual health of their President."  "The American people should have absolute confidence in their President," reads the letter to Biden in part.  "They deserve to know that he or she can perform the duties of Head of State and Commander in Chief.  They deserve full transparency on the mental capabilities of their highest elected leader."

Republican Rep. says president is 'clearly incapable of running the country' with aides 'protecting' him from the press.  Republicans have torn into President Biden's performance at his press conference in Geneva on Wednesday and criticized hearing more about his 'favorite ice cream flavors' than his inability to answer 'basic' questions, with aides stopping him from going off-script.  GOP House members also criticized his 'weak' performance at his summit with Vladimir Putin and insist the US needs to put 'our best leaders forward'.  Their condemnation follows comments from CNN Chief National Affairs Correspondent Jeff Zeleny that Biden is the most 'protected' president he has seen, and aides were screaming at him to stop answering when he strayed from his pre-approved list of reporters at the end of the briefing.

Documents Show Joe Biden's Brother Frank Caught Violating Florida Traffic Law, Case Dismissed Due to Police Officer Out for 'Training'.  Public documents show President Joe Biden's brother, Frank Biden, was caught speeding in Florida and received no punishment in another example of how the Biden family lives above the law.  Court video reveals the case was dismissed June 16, 2021, because the ticketing police officer was absent from the hearing attending police "training" instead, which began May 15 and ended June 17, one day after the hearing.  The traffic stop occurred in January of 2021 in Palm Beach County, Florida.

Corruption Concerns Mount as Hunter Biden's Artwork to Go on Sale for Up to Half a Million Dollars Per Painting.  President Joe Biden's scandal-plagued son Hunter Biden is reportedly now engaged as a "full-time artist" and is working with Soho art dealer Georges Bergès to hold an exhibition in New York in the coming months, with prices for Hunter's artwork ranging from $75,000 to $500,000, according to Artnet.

Hunter's Dip into the Art World Connected to 'Weed Slut' Lingerie Entrepreneur Zoe Kestan.  President Joe Biden's 51-year-old scandal-plagued son is venturing into the art world, with Soho art dealer Georges Bergès, who reportedly has some ties to China, holding a private viewing for Hunter's artwork in Los Angeles, followed by an art exhibition in New York in the fall.  Hunter has reportedly been working on his art full time, and his pieces, Bergès told Artnet, will "range from $75,000 for works on paper to $500,000 for large-scale paintings." [...] However, Hunter's new venture has sparked growing concerns about the potential for pay-for-play corruption in light of the fact that the buyers will remain anonymous, and the shadowy nature of the art world is a notorious avenue for money laundering.

Hunter Biden, booted and blacklisted from Chateau Marmont in 2018.  Back when Joe Biden was shaking down fat-cat donors for cash and getting out there in his first moves to run for president in 2018, son Hunter, was having the time of his life.  No one in the press noticed this.  But among West Hollywood's elite hoteliers, they knew, they knew it very well. [...] New York Post columnist Maureen Callaghan wrote that she believes his memoirs signal that he hasn't changed any, and he likely remains a drug addict.  This, despite the oodles of cash that are apparently rolling in from his new gig at creating "art," where his "masterpieces" with unnamed buyers, sell for $500,000 a pop.  The Chateau Marmont banning was not some long-ago event, but quite recent.  The press was ignoring it at the time, particularly the corrupt aspect of it around how he was financing this lifestyle.  It now continues to ignore the art sales, also born of political influence.

Camera Man Gets Close-Up Of Biden's Note Card At G7, Littered With Trump's Name.  A closeup photo from OAN at the G7 conference shows exactly what President Joe Biden and his handlers are putting on his pathetic flash cards.  Biden has proven to be a total embarrassment on the world stage this past week and it now appears that he is trying to pin America's current problems on former President Donald Trump.  He is also so incompetent that he needs a notecard to tell him what to say!

Biden started to lose the traveling media on his European trip.  The White House press corps desperately wants to love Joe Biden, simply because he is not Donald Trump.  But the stresses and strains of traveling with an addled figurehead, with a bad temper and a need for "lids" that keep the media away from him, started to accumulate on his first European tour.  Signs of hurt, anger, and distrust are starting to accumulate.  In the end, the editors back in New York and Washington will do their best to protect Biden, but unhappiness in the ranks of those who travel with him is not a good sign for the continued ability of his handlers to keep the public bamboozled about his senescence and the identity and power of his handlers.  On Monday, the media were kept waiting two and a half hours for Biden to speak to them, with no explanation.  My guess is he was getting jabbed with vitamins, or maybe stimulants, or God knows what sort of pharmaceuticals to revive him and make him semi-coherent.  NewsBusters reported on how it all played out on MSNBC, with this compilation of excuses for the delay of his appearance "any moment now."  With Biden, there is a lot of waiting.  He earned the nickname "Slow Joe" long before age took its toll, mainly for his mental limitations, but it applies to his promptness as well.

[Members of] The Press Are Now Praising Joe Biden for Verbally Assaulting a Reporter.  As I reported this afternoon [6/16/2021], Joe Biden blew up at a CNN reporter today, insulting Kaitlan Collins multiple times after she asked him a basic question about expectations and Vladimir Putin.  While Biden's shows of senility and outbursts aren't exactly new, that he was unable to control himself in this situation was still surprising.  The real question, though, was how the media would react.  They had already been mistreated, by their own claim, earlier that day.  Would they go after Biden the way they went after Trump for every perceived slight?

Biden says he 'stressed the importance of free press' to Putin before taking questions from list of Pre-Approved reporters.  Joe Biden was condemned for taking pre-approved questions from journalists during his Geneva summit with Vladimir Putin — then moaning at a journalist for 'never asking a positive question.'  'To be a good reporter you gotta be negative.  You gotta have a negative view of life, ok, it seems to me — the way you all — you never ask a positive question,' Biden told one of the reporters on the tarmac at the airport in Geneva Wednesday [6/16/2021] before boarding Air Force One for a flight back home to Washington.  Biden made his complaint after being asked to provide 'concrete evidence' that 'suggests any movement has been made' with the Russian leader.

CNN's Jeff Zeleny slams Biden handlers for 'screaming at him' to stop him answering questions.  Joe Biden's aides are preventing him from taking questions, according to CNN's chief national affairs correspondent, who claimed Wednesday night that the president's advisors are regularly 'screaming at him to stop'.  Jeff Zeleny spoke on Wednesday after Biden's much-hyped meeting with Vladimir Putin in Russia.  Biden angrily confronted Zeleny's CNN colleague Kaitlan Collins [...] when she questioned him about the summit.  Biden later apologized, before boarding the plane to leave.

Joe Biden arranges for big July 4 celebration — after telling states to shut those down.  Just weeks after telling states not to hold large Fourth of July celebrations, and banning fireworks at Mount Rushmore, his White House is busy throwing a huge party for it, and oh, if other states want to join him at this late date, they're welcome. [...] Biden has known for a long time the origins of the COVID virus.  He's also known for a long time the effectiveness of hydroxychloroquine, and ivermectin.  Yet he's constantly harped and hectored in a bid to extend lockdowns.  He's been particularly harsh on South Dakota's Gov. Kristi Noem, who's tried to lift her state from the post-COVID doldrums in the natural way of the state, which is to celebrate at Mount Rushmore.  Noem was suing him for that one.  Yet Biden carried on, and somehow, we learn that now he encourages celebration.  This is a far cry from "if you don't behave, no Fourth of July for you," which he said in April as a means of threatening citizens into getting vaccinated.

Five MSM Lies for Which Trump Has Been Vindicated, and the Damage They Caused.  [#4] Hunter Biden:  Everyone knew Hunter Biden was a cad, and we also had a pretty good idea that he was on-the-take with foreign actors, particularly in Ukraine.  President Trump knew it as well, made no secret of his thoughts, and got impeached for an unprecedented second time for his efforts.  The media, meanwhile, pooh-poohed the whole story for as long as the could, which just happened to be until after the election in early-December when the validity of the story became clear. [...] This scandal was obvious going back to the Democratic primaries.  If the media had reported accurately on it from the beginning, and Biden had been held to account for his possible illegal associations with his son's business partners, there's a good chance Biden never would have been nominated and another Democrat would have ran against Trump.  As with the other gaslighting the media has participated in, the cumulative effect of the lies on the electorate can't be overstated, and the credibility for those telling the truth, most of whom work at conservative media outlets, would likely enjoy more trust from many Americans who turned them off as a result.  Hunter Biden's shenanigans weren't just potentially criminal, they quite possibly could have jeopardized national security.  The investigations into whatever it is he did are no doubt continuing, but if the media had done their jobs, we would likely already be aware of the whole story.

Biden Privilege:  A Tale of Two Racists.  We are living in a P.C. culture.  In the past few years, we've seen multiple celebrities canceled for comments that have been taken to be offensive against African Americans or Black Lives Matter.  Meanwhile, Joe Biden and his son, Hunter, get a free pass when openly insulting Black people.  There's a long list of celebrates who got canceled after they purposefully or accidentally said or tweeted offensive remarks against Black people, including remarks that were not objectively racist but were perceived as racist. [...] Things are different if you're a Biden.  Throughout his political career, Joe Biden has regularly made racist remarks.  Beginning in the 1970s, when he started his career, Biden proudly associated with segregationists and said busing would lead to a "racial jungle."  As a U.S. Senator, he said quoted the n-word thirteen times during Senate hearings in 1985. Just fifteen years ago, Biden said, "You cannot go to a 7-Eleven or Dunkin Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent."

Hunter Biden Has a New Racket to Pull in Huge Amounts of Anonymous Cash.  [Scroll down]  We've seen there are a lot of questions of conflicts of interest.  Democrats would like to try to dismiss all that as irrelevant by saying, "Hunter wasn't elected."  But his father is in power now and it's his father who lied about not knowing anything about his son's business associates.  And it's his father who met with some of those very associates as the emails on Hunter's laptop and pictures of Joe with those associates prove.  So one has to ask if everything was on the up-and-up; if people weren't bargaining for access to Joe and whatever benefit the big guy could bring them, why all the lies?  Neither Joe nor Hunter have been called to account yet, which means that frankly, it could be continuing even now.

NYC Gallery Owner Predicts Hunter Biden's Artwork Will Sell over Double Its Worth Because of His Family Name.  A New York City art gallery owner predicts that Hunter Biden's latest venture as a full-time artist will prove to be profitable, with his art selling significantly over its actual value because of his family name alone.  Hunter Biden, President Joe Biden's scandal-ridden son, is now reportedly engaged as a full-time artist and is already working with a Soho art dealer, who reportedly has some ties to China — Georges Bergès.  Bergès is expected to hold a private viewing displaying the president's son's work and will hold an exhibition in New York in the coming months.  Prices for Hunter's artwork range from $75,000 to half a million dollars, according to Artnet.

The Editor says...
[#1] Joe Biden is unapologetic about his own history of plagiarism, therefore one could easily surmise that Hunter Biden has no qualms about it himself.  Famous people hire ghost writers all the time; perhaps they do the same for art.  [#2] Joe Biden may be completely senile, but he still occupies the office of U.S. President.  Joe Biden signs the orders that somebody else writes.  If there is influence to be peddled, the influence is in the hands of Joe Biden's mostly-anonymous handlers; for example, DOCTOR Jill Biden, who has tasted power and doesn't want to give it up.  If you purchase one of "Hunter's" paintings for a million dollars, even if he painted it himself, and even if the painting is pretty good, the transaction still carries the aroma of graft.

Joe Biden Fiddles with Notecard Covered with Anti-Trump Talking Points in England.  President Joe Biden fiddled with a notecard covered with anti-Trump talking points during a press conference in England on Sunday [6/13/2021].  The card was accompanied by several others as One America News filmed Biden during the press conference in Cornwall.  It was labeled "DOJ Talking Points" and featured an array of subjects, most all of which had to do with former President Donald Trump's time in office.

Sometimes a Coincidence isn't a Coincidence.  The pandemic resulting from COVID-19 was used as rationale for fundamental changes to our election processes.  These changes facilitated the most questionable election outcome in U.S. history.  51% of the population now believes that fraud affected the election outcome — and that number is growing.  Coincidentally, the election of 2020 neutralized China's biggest threat — President Donald J. Trump.  The beneficiary of the compromised election of 2020 is Joe Biden.  Coincidentally, old Joe has deep and troubling financial connections to China.  His son Hunter accompanied him to China when Joe was the vice president and subsequently made millions of dollars from Chinese-sponsored business ventures.  Emails from Hunter's abandoned laptop indicate that Joe was the recipient of a sizable portion of those proceeds.

Biden Versus Trump: a Video Comparison.  Watch these three, short videos.  No words are necessary. [Video clips]  Here are a few points that come immediately to mind:
  [#1]   One of these two is a complete embarrassment.
  [#2]   One of these two is operating in a diminished capacity, both physically and mentally.
  [#3]   One of these two is a de facto Hologram and incapable of independent thought.
  [#4]   One of these two has zero gravitas (to use a once-favorite word of the Democrat-media complex).
  [#5]   One of these two is being laughed at around the world.
  [#6]   One of these two has no command presence whatsoever.
  [#7]   One of these two is the victim of elder abuse.
  [#8]   One of these two cannot respond to a simple question without a script.
  [#9]   One of these two is flat-out un-presidential in demeanor and actions.
  [#10]   One of these two should be in a rocking chair somewhere and not on the world stage.
  [#11]   One of these two is a humorless doppelgänger.
  [#12]   One of these two ALMOST makes you feel sorry for him.

Joe Biden Confuses Himself Again This Morning, Gets Lost Reading His Notes.  President Biden broke his own standard of the political protocol by attacking his Republican rivals during an overseas summit — but escaped scrutiny from the same media that ripped former President Donald Trump for similar moves.  The commander-in-chief claimed the Republican party was "fractured" and Trump only had "phony populism" as he spoke at a press conference after a NATO summit in Brussels on Monday [6/14/2021].  Like his "clown show" from yesterday wasn't enough he embarrassed our country this morning again!

Report: Vatican 'Nixed' Request for Joe Biden to Attend Mass with Pope Francis.  Joe Biden's entourage requested permission for the president to attend Mass with Pope Francis during his European visit, which the Vatican "nixed," according to a Wednesday report from Catholic News Agency (CNA).  The Vatican's refusal stemmed from "the impact that Biden receiving Holy Communion from the pope would have on the discussions the USCCB [U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops] is planning to have during their meeting starting Wednesday, June 16," the report stated, citing an unnamed Vatican source.

US Bishops To Discuss Communion Ban For Biden, Left-Wing Politicians With 'Antithetical' Views.  American bishops will discuss whether the Catholic Church should bar pro-abortion and pro-LGBTQ politicians from receiving Holy Communion.  Church leadership remains divided on the issue as Biden, only the second Catholic U.S. president, holds stances that are contrary to church teachings.  The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) will hold their annual meeting, virtually, from Wednesday through Friday, during which they will decided whether or not to ask the Committee on Doctrine to draft a teaching document on the topic of Communion, Reuters reported.

In any Christian denomination, if a congregation includes unrepentant homosexuals, drunkards, thieves, sorcerers, or abortionists, the congregation has every right to ostracize or expel them, whether they are elected officials, church leaders, celebrities, or peons.

To Stage the Counter-Counter-Revolution, GOP Must Learn From Lenin.  [Scroll down]  Now, under the "Biden administration" — which is by all accounts being run directly and indirectly from chez Obama in Washington's tony Kalorama neighborhood — the goal is to bury the Trump administration and make sure such a thing never happens again.  (Why do you think Obama, alone among past presidents, broke with tradition and remained, along with his family and his advisors, in D.C. throughout the Trump administration?) [...] If the 2020 election wasn't a counter-revolutionary coup, abetted by unconstitutional changes in state election law "justified" by the non-threat of COVID-19 and assiduously promoted by the media, it certainly is beginning to look very much like one.  So let the counter-counter-revolution begin.

More Evidence Emerges That Joe Biden Is Not Well.  Joe Biden's disastrous G7 performance has been well documented here at RedState. [...] Unfortunately, it's not over yet, and more evidence is emerging that the current President of the United States is simply not well.  Let's take a look at the timeline.  Yesterday, he was 2.5 hours late for a NATO press conference, offering no explanation for his extreme tardiness. [...] After finally showing up, Biden then started to call on reporters from a pre-selected list prepared by his handlers.  That's when his brain locked up harder than an engine starved of oil.  [Video clip]  That was probably the most awkward moment of his entire trip.  Calling that a pregnant pause would be offensive to real pregnant people, who typically give birth in less time than it took him to finally answer that question.  Was he waiting for help?  Or is his brain really just that broken?  Either way, there is no explanation available that says anything good about the country's top leader.

Why Merrick Garland Must Appoint a Special Counsel to Investigate the Bidens.  It is now clear, after the appointment of new attorney general, Merrick Garland, that he must, not may, appoint a Special Counsel to investigate Hunter Biden in public corruption matters that may substantially involve his father.  This is especially clear now that it is known, contrary to his fervent denials, that Joe Biden met with Hunter's corrupt Ukrainian and Russian clients at least once at Café Milano in Washington, D.C.  There are likely more meetings, but once is enough.  He also met at length in the White House with Hunter's partner, Devon Archer, as the two were pitching their services to the corrupt Burisma Holdings, as it was being targeted by a joint UK/US task force.  As a result, they scored a deal in which they each received $1 million annually in fees, plus other lobbying and legal fees.  More strikingly, an email from Hunter on his laptop states without ambiguity he was paying his father half of his fees.  He need do that, of course, only if Joe was in on the game.

Biden Freezes Like a Deer in Headlights for 10 Seconds Straight When Reporter Asks About Vladimir Putin.  Joe Biden was nearly 3 hours late to his NATO presser on Monday [6/14/2021].  The White House gave no explanation for why Joe Biden was late.  Joe Biden gave a short speech then took a few questions from a list of pre-approved reporters.  Biden awkwardly laughed when CNN's Jeff Zeleny asked if he still believes Russian President Vladimir Putin is a "killer.  Then Biden froze like a deer in headlights for 10 seconds straight.

The Biden European Chaos Continues:  Biden's Brain Breaks in the Middle of Press Conference.  Joe Biden was supposed to have a press conference after NATO meetings today in Belgium at 9:00 p.m.  But he was at least three hours late with 100 members of the press waiting that whole time, with no real explanation being given to the press.  So when Biden finally showed up, it might have been better had he not done so, because they were primed and ready.  One of them asked him about Vladimir Putin and asked Biden if he thought Putin was a killer, a term that Biden has used for Putin in the past.  That seemed to be too much for Biden, who just started weirdly laughing.  [Video clip]  Then his brain seemed to break.  "Well, look, I mean he has made clear," Biden said.  Then he seemed unable to finish his sentence and had a long pause as he appeared to be searching for words.

Joe Biden's Tenuous Grip on Reality Put on Full Display for the World At NATO Summit Press Conference.  On Monday Joe Biden attended a NATO summit in Brussels, Belgium, after which he conducted a 30-minute press conference.  My colleague Nick Arama has specifically examined Biden's seeming inability to answer a question posed by CNN's Jeff Zeleny about Biden having previously called Russian President Vladimir Putin a "killer" and how that might impact their talks in his upcoming summit meeting with Putin.  But the overall tenor of Biden's press conference put on display for the European press and the entire world the obvious mental deficiencies that Joe Biden is suffering from.  His condition — however it might be diagnosed — is not constant and continuous, but his press availability is so tightly controlled and scripted that when Biden does find himself in a difficult moment, his confusion and inability to articulate a coherent response are obvious to everyone.

Joe Biden Absolutely Beclowns Himself at NATO Presser With Lying, Partisan Rant.  Remember when we were assured that Joe Biden was going to bring about a return of normalcy and decorum?  Yeah, good times.  That's all gone out the window since Biden officially took office and things aren't getting any better.  When the president's mind is not melting, he's pushing a far-left agenda that is enough to make Bernie Sanders blush.  Even still, you'd expect the partisan rantings to be few and far between while overseas at the G7, where he's already beclowned himself multiple times throughout the last week.

Fed up Reporter Calls Biden out After Latest Instance of Handlers Intervening on His Behalf.  Whether it was appearing confused at times or needing help from others including First Lady Jill Biden and other world leaders, there's just no hiding the fact that President Biden's trip overseas for the G7 and now the NATO summit has been a major catastrophe for this administration.  It's gotten so bad that even his handlers are getting in on the act in order to try and contain the damage.  As if shooing a Sky News reporter away from one G7 event over the weekend as cameras were rolling wasn't embarrassing enough, there was another incident just today as the NATO summit got underway.  Biden was sitting at a table full of Turkish and American diplomats in advance of his bilateral meeting with Turkey's President Recep Erdogan, who was sitting across from him.  Watch below as reporters ask questions but are ignored by Biden as his handlers quickly shoo them away from the scene:  [Video clip]

Biden Gets Played by Putin and Adviser Has to Clean up the Mess.  I'm not sure who thought it was a good idea to send Joe Biden to the G7.  Probably the same person who thought it was a good idea to send Kamala Harris to Guatemala and Mexico.  It's been a complete embarrassing mess for Biden.  It started with his wife providing some bad optics, sitting at the presidential desk on Air Force One, tweeting that she was "prepping for the G7" and then once they got to England, scolding Joe to "pay attention."  It continued into Sunday, with Biden getting confused and Boris Johnson actually shushing him twice, with the other leaders laughing.  Then Biden really screwed up the press conference, losing his cool and saying weird things, as well as saying his team didn't want him answering questions.  On top of all that, he confused Syria with Libya three separate times without seeming to realize it and even while trying desperately to straighten himself out by looking at his note cards.

Jon Voight Rips 'Racist' Hunter Biden, Media's N-Word Double Standards.  In response to an explosive report last week which revealed President Joe Biden's son Hunter using the N-word multiple times in text messages with his attorney, Academy Award-winning actor Jon Voight posted a powerful video Sunday, blasting the hypocrisy of the left and media for justifying Hunter Biden's racism "while the Trump family were harassed night and day."  The clip, posted with the byline "Hope is real," is slightly over two minutes and features Voight against the backdrop of an American flag.  [Tweet]

Alternate headline: Biden proposes massive international slush fund.
Joe Biden Goes Global with $40 Trillion 'Build Back Better for the World' Infrastructure Plan.  President Joe Biden will announce during talks with world leaders at the G7 summit on Saturday a global $40 trillion infrastructure plan to "Build Back Better for the World."  During their meeting, World leaders at the G7 summit plan to meet about the importance of a "fair, sustainable, inclusive global economy," including a discussion about China.

Biden signs on to $40T 'Build Back Better World' plan to build infrastructure in 'poorer countries'.  Several G7 nations have agreed to a plan reportedly drafted by President Joe Biden's administration to spend a combined $40 trillion to "help poorer countries build infrastructure."  The ostensible goal of the Build Back Better World (B3W) plan is to "challenge China's huge Belt and Road Initiative," Reuters noted.  BRI is a competing global infrastructure project launched in 2013 by Chinese President Xi Jinping.  "China's belt and road plan was launched by Xi in 2013 and involves development and investment initiatives stretching from Asia to Europe and beyond," the Hong Kong-based South China Morning Post notes.  "More than 100 countries have signed agreements with China to cooperate in BRI projects like railways, ports, highways and other infrastructure," it adds.

The Editor says...
It sounds to me like China will build the roads (in Asia and Europe) and the U.S. will be expected pay for them.  What a deal!

Joe Biden's European Vacation.  Dominic Green's New York Post column explains the offense the escapee from Madam Tussauds has given his British hosts.  The column is "Biden opens European tour with slap at Brits."  However, Prime Minister Boris Johnson appears to be taking it well.  Green is deputy editor of the Spectator's world edition as well as a historian and journalist of the first rank.  While our mainstream media serve Biden like the courtiers and townsfolk in "The emperor's new clothes," Green plays the part of the the little child, but with the eye of an educated adult: [...]

G-7 members laugh at Biden as he insists in introducing a guest that already was introduced.  Yesterday, at the G-7 meeting, President Biden said twice in a row, "America is back at the table," in an unsubtle dig at President Trump.  But he forgot to add that the other people at the table were laughing at him.  Dementia Joe interrupted UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson as he was presiding over a session where visitors were being introduced and insisted on adding the President of South Africa — who had already been introduced.  PM Johnson maintained a calm voice, but was clearly annoyed, as this transcript from TGP shows: [...]

Why isn't Hunter Biden being condemned for unacceptable use of the N-word?  The N-word is the most atrocious word in any language.  Historically, it was the last word many heard before they were lynched or jumped off slave ships.  It was the last word women on plantations heard before they were beaten and raped by their slave masters.  It was the last word husbands and children heard before they watched slave masters snatch up their wives and mothers for the masters' diabolical pleasures.  The N-word was likely the last word heard by Emmett Till, a 14-year-old African American from Chicago who was accused of whistling at a white woman before he was kidnapped, tortured and murdered by two white men in Mississippi.  This most heinous word has been a favorite of white supremacists, members of the KKK, slave owners, and racists in general.  It may shock you to learn that it is also a favorite word of Hunter Biden, the son of the president of the United States.

I Think I've Figured out What's Behind That Weird G7 Photo of Jill Biden.  Yesterday, the White House released a perplexing photo of Jill Biden supposedly "prepping for the G7."  The First Lady is pictured sitting at her husband's desk on Air Force One, sorting through a large notebook in all business attire.  It left many people wondering exactly what she was preparing for.  After all, she's not elected to anything nor has she been appointed to any executive position.  Was she highlighting things for her husband because he's so obviously incapable of doing his job himself, or was it something else?  While we can't know the answer to that question for sure, the presentation of Jill Biden as somewhat being in charge is too deliberate to ignore at this point. [...] I'm not sure how it hasn't dawned on me before, but I think I have the reason figured out behind this campaign to make Jill Biden seem so presidential — I think she's going to run for president.

Joe Biden's G7 Presser Was an Absolute Train Wreck on the World Stage.  [Scroll down]  This is the President of the United States unable to answer a basic question, instead, leaning into the mic and growling about it how it has only been 120 days.  I'm not sure if that's the senility coming out — or if he's really just this awkward when he's of sound mind — but it's not a good look.  Besides, Biden has been in Washington, D.C., for 47 years.  The idea that he just needs "more time" to do something as simple as lifting steel tariffs makes no sense, on its face.  Things got weirder, though.  When asked why he wasn't going to do the traditional joint presser when he meets with Russian President Vladimir Putin soon, Biden basically admitted that his brain is too broken to handle it.

Australian News Service Laughs at U.S. Media Hypocrisy During G7 Where Mumbling Fool Biden is Laughing Stock of World Leaders.  Australian Sky News pundits laugh at how the U.S. corporate media hype the JoeBama administration while the world laughs at the G7 pantomime on display.  At least one news agency is honest...  [Video clip]  Once you see the strings on the marionettes you can never watch the pantomime and not see them; regardless of how hard the media attempts to proclaim the contrary.

President Biden Continues to Reverse Trump-era Policies for No Reason Other Than Erasing His Legacy.  While certainly entitled to do so, what's notable is the lack of reasoning behind President Biden making these moves.  The desire to put his fingerprint on his administration is one thing, but then when you have the added leftist desire to eradicate anything and everything affiliated with Donald Trump it leads to the avalanche of executive orders and other actions taken by President Biden since January.  Many of these moves have carried the whiff of doing so strictly out of pettiness and spite.

Lost at G-7: Joe Biden wanders into the wrong cafeteria at the G-7 until Jill finally finds him and leads him away.  Move over, Kamala Harris — Joe Biden is about to show you something about how to blow it abroad. [...] The first video shows him wandering into a cafeteria for the public instead of the special accommodations reserved for the G-7 leaders.  Notice that the crowd guffaws as someone throws out a flip question, which he has to ask her to repeat.  When he gives a dullard's answer, the laughter roars harder.  It's an obvious mockery of a lost old fool looking for the buffet table at the senior citizens' home, or maybe the right bingo hall on a Thursday.  Nobody applauds Biden's entry as if he were there to see him, nor does anyone indicate terror and awe or basic respect for the leader of the free world.  Nope, for them, he was "just trying to get some ranch."  Or perhaps they were when he obviously wandered in, not knowing what day it was or where he was at.

My Top 10 media lies.  Just as liberals have become illiberal, media have become more focused on suppressing the truth than revealing it.  Take Hunter Biden's laptop, which is No. 6 on my Top Ten, although it rivals Russia, Russia, Russia in importance.  When The Post first showed how the contents revealed his shady foreign business deals and how his father helped him, it was not unreasonable for the Times, Washington Post and others to hold off until they could confirm the explosive information late in the campaign.  The role Rudy Giuliani played in getting the material to The Post, which the paper disclosed, created additional concern because Giuliani was Trump's lawyer.  So there were legitimate reasons for caution — up to a point.  But the real motivation in avoiding the story soon became apparent.  The outlets that held their noses over the laptop had no trouble embracing the claim from Joe Biden's campaign that the e-mails on it were "Russian disinformation."

Is Jill Biden staging a little coup?  Kamala Harris's short tenure in the Veep's office, in its own way, has been even more disastrous than Biden's equally short tenure in the Oval office.  We all knew Biden would be a bumbling fool, but thanks to the power of the pen and the executive orders the radicals on his staff have been writing, he's been incredibly effective.  In six months, he's dismantled America's security, economy, and sanity.  Meanwhile, Kamala has failed at the one thing for which she was responsible:  Bringing control to the border.  Now, some are wondering if that failure was orchestrated in the White House and if Mrs. Jill Biden was responsible.

Hunter Biden Facilitated Deal for Democratic Consultants Now Under Federal Investigation.  Emails from Hunter Biden's laptop show he was instrumental in setting up a consulting deal between a Ukrainian energy company and two Democratic consultants under investigation for violating foreign lobbying laws.  Biden and colleagues at the private equity firm Rosemont Seneca helped Burisma Holdings hire Blue Star Strategies, a firm owned by former Clinton administration officials Sally Painter and Karen Tramontano.  Biden's emails show he played a bigger role than anyone had known in arranging Blue Star's consulting work for Burisma.  Neither Biden nor the Blue Star founders registered their work under the Lobbying Disclosure Act or the Foreign Agents Registration Act.  Biden's work as a middleman could also explain why federal prosecutors began scrutinizing Blue Star's work for Burisma.

Covering Biden — or Just Covering for Him?  Unless Joe Biden's memory is as weak as his critics contend, he has been lying for years by claiming, "I have never spoken to my son [Hunter] about his overseas business dealings."  As reported in the New York Post, an email from his son's abandoned laptop, which Joe Biden and much of the media inexplicably dismissed as Russian disinformation[,] confirms that the senior Biden met with Vadym Pozharskyi, an executive of the Ukrainian energy company Burisma, in Georgetown on April 16, 2015.  "Dear Hunter," Pozharskyi wrote the next day, "thank you for inviting me to DC and giving an opportunity to meet your father and spent [sic] some time together.  It's realty [sic] an honor and pleasure."  At the time, Vice President Biden was overseeing U.S. policy toward Ukraine and his son Hunter was being paid $83,333 a month to sit on the board of Burisma, which was accused of corruption.

Joe Biden Seems To Get Lost At The G7 Summit In England, Jill Comes To The Rescue.  President Joe Biden on Friday [6/11/2021] met with top allies in Cornwall, England, for a G-7 leaders summit, the first such in-person meeting since the coronavirus pandemic began.  While the focus of the summit's agenda is on multilateral initiatives affecting the G-7 countries, all eyes are on the president's upcoming sitdown with Russian President Vladimir Putin set for next Wednesday. [...] Putin probably is having a nice laugh while he is watching Joe Biden embarrass himself on the international level.

Creepy Joe Biden Can't Keep His Paws Off of Boris Johnson's Young Wife.  Joe Biden and his handler Jill arrived in Cornwall on Thursday to participate in the G7 summit.  Creepy Joe just couldn't keep his paws off of UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson's wife.  Biden beelined it to Boris Johnson's young wife, Carrie Johnson as soon as he arrived in Cornwall, England.  "Wait a minute!  Wait a minute!" Biden said ignoring Boris Johnson's extended hand after he exited the motorcade.

Everything was better with President Trump in the White House.  Incredibly, only four months have passed since Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr. was installed as president and in that brief time, he has done more damage than anyone could have thought possible.  On day one Biden stopped work on the Keystone pipeline, now truly defunct, which cost thousands of jobs. [...] President Trump made us energy independent.  Now we are again importing oil, even from Iran.  He removed sanctions that prevented Russia from completing their Nordstream pipeline that will enrich that country fabulously.  He has stopped drilling on federal lands including ANWR and put an end to nearly all drilling for our own oil on federal lands.  He is intentionally strangling the US oil industry without regard for the hardships this will bring to all Americans.

Leo Terrell Goes OFF: If Don Jr.  Or Eric Were Recorded Saying the N-Word, There'd Be Riots.  Joe Biden's son, Hunter Biden, is back in hot water.  Earlier this week, Hunter Biden's leaked text messages showed him repeatedly using the "n-word" while speaking with his attorney.  These messages were obtained by the Daily Mail, and show Hunter saying "true dat n***a" in a January 2019 text to corporate attorney George Mesires.  During an interview on Fox News, conservative commentator Leo Terrell reminded everyone how the mainstream media would treat this story if those racist words were used by Donald Trump Jr. or Eric Trump, the two sons of President Donald Trump.  "Very clearly, back Democrats, wake up.  If this was Eric Trump or Donald Trump, you would have had Al Sharpton on 24/7.  And I'll tell you right now, you would have riots.  You would have riots and protesting in the streets," Terrell said.

21,000 sign petition protesting US Catholic bishops vote on Biden, abortion.  More than 21,000 people have signed a letter calling for U.S. Catholic bishops to cancel a planned vote on whether President Biden should receive communion.  Biden, a Catholic, supports abortion rights and has long come under attack from some Catholics over that position.  The vote is set to take place next week at a meeting of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops.  The petition, organized by Faithful America, argued that the receiving of communion was being weaponized through the vote against Biden and congressional leaders who support abortion rights.

Biden to Harris:  Disaster 1 to Disaster 2.  For those among this readership who have a compromised older family member, it isn't merely the grotesquely obvious signs of dementia that mark Biden as severely limited.  It's the more subtle behaviors that betray his overwhelming incapacity. [...] It's tough to put into exact words, but anyone with a badly slipping elder family member or friend recognizes this demeanor.  Biden is well past even the vaguest pretense of mental competence.  This brings us to Kamala Harris.  For these and other reasons, the Democrats will ditch Biden for Harris when they believe Biden has outlived his usefulness and feel that a Harris presidency can be leveraged for maximum political advantage.  But other than transparently boasting that Harris is the country's first female president, how would a Harris administration benefit the country?  It won't.

Exactly what Barack H. Obama would have done:
Biden to Celebrate 20th Anniversary of 9/11 by Freeing Gitmo Terrorists.  Biden is restarting every terrible Obama project.  And he's trying to finish those that Obama couldn't.  Obama's big dream was freeing all the terrorists and closing Gitmo.  One of his first executive orders addressed Gitmo's terrorists.  He forced out Secretary of Defense Hagel over it, and terrorized Secretary of Defense Ash Carter to such an extent that at one point Obama actually asked a Republican Congress for the power to override him on this.  The Osama mission wasn't about killing the terrorist leader, but detaining him for a civilian trial so he could justify dismantling Gitmo and the military court system.  Biden is following in Obama's footsteps, but he's chosen to be less confrontational about it.  That's a matter of tactics, not ends.  Unlike Hagel and Carter, Biden picked Lloyd Austin as a guy who will rubber stamp the worst possible abuses and crimes against national security.

More about Obama and Iran.

Jill Biden Posts Pic on Air Force One That Has People Asking Questions.  [Scroll down]  I'm having Edith Wilson thoughts and pretensions to the office about this one.  Edith Wilson is widely understood to have taken over to some degree after her husband President Woodrow Wilson had a stroke and she misled people as to his capacity, making decisions in his place.  This appears to have been taken at the presidential desk aboard Air Force One.  You can see Joe Biden's Air Force One jacket on the chair.  So if she's sitting in his chair, apparently looking at briefing books, where's Joe?  Why is Jill Biden "prepping" for the G-7, isn't that supposed to be the job of her husband, that guy who allegedly got more votes than anyone in history?  When was Jill elected?

Tucker Raises Some Savage Questions About the Pic on the Plane of Jill Biden.  Jill Biden posted a picture on Twitter of her sitting at the presidential desk on Air Force One with her looking through a large briefing book and the message, "Prepping for the G-7."  That sparked a lot of questions from people as to where Joe was and what she was doing in his seat.  So, after a classic skewering of Kamala Harris the night before, Tucker Carlson took on "Dr. Jill" and what she was doing at the desk, preparing to represent us abroad.  "Dr. Jill's in charge now... so the point couldn't be clearer."

Is Biden Sabotaging Kamala Harris?  Biden putting Kamala Harris in "charge" of dealing with the illegal migrant surge or its root causes was a thankless job.  Kamala keeps getting gigs like this because she's supposedly the next in line for the job.  It's the Biden-Harris administration and there were strong indicators that Biden might not run for a second term.  Except that now Biden is signaling that he will run again.  Kamala's numbers are terrible and some White House people are stabbing her in the back with the usual anonymous comments.

The Editor says...
I suspect DOCTOR Jill Biden has tasted the power and fame of being the First Lady, and she doesn't want to give it up.  That would explain why Joe Biden was once expected to serve only one term, but now indicates he's going to attempt re-election.  In the absence of (additional) widespread election fraud, there's not the slightest chance Biden will be re-elected, but DOCTOR Jill Biden probably thinks it's worth a try.

Jill Biden Scolds Her Husband to 'Pay Attention,' as Media Cleans Up His Stumbling Speech.  [Scroll down]  Then Biden and his wife later landed at Royal Air Force Mildenhall in England, where Biden met with U.S. Air Force personnel stationed there.  Jill Biden (is she in charge now?) had to scold Joe to "pay attention."  She sounds like an old grandmother scolding a five-year-old.  There he is with that mask again, despite being vaccinated.  Then Joe mispronounced the RAF as the RFA.  Teleprompters can be hard to read, even overseas.  He also exaggerated how many times he'd been to Afghanistan and Iraq, claiming that he'd been to Afghanistan and Iraq "well over 27, 28 times."  He's repeating a false number despite the fact that it's previously been debunked during his campaign.  But he also seemed confused about what the "greatest threat to the country" was.

'Joe, pay attention!' Jill snaps at Biden while she's speaking to US troops stationed in the UK.  Jill Biden admonished her husband Joe to pay attention when she addressed American troops in the United Kingdom Wednesday night [6/9/2021].  'Joe pay attention,' the first lady told the president.  She was giving remarks as the president interacted with the crowd of Air Force personnel at Royal Air Force Mildenhall.  She had just told the service members to sit down.  President Biden, standing behind her, turned around to see the troops positioned behind the stage.  That was when the first lady asked chided him to watch her as she addressed Air Force personnel at Royal Air Force Mildenhall.

Joe Biden: 'Not A Joke' — Global Warming the 'Greatest Threat' Facing America.  President Joe Biden claimed Wednesday [6/9/2021] that the greatest threat to America was global warming in a speech to American troops in the United Kingdom.  Biden asked the nations of the world to commit to "ambitious climate action" to stop climate change and stop the world from warming no more than 1.5 degrees celsius.  Biden claimed that when he was elected as vice president with President Barack Obama, the Joint Chiefs of Staff told them that global warming was the greatest threat to the United States.

Biden to purchase 500M Pfizer shots for rest of the world.  The Biden administration is planning to buy 500 million doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech coronavirus vaccine to share with the rest of the world.  President Biden teased the plan Wednesday before boarding Air Force One for his first foreign trip, saying he would outline his strategy at the Group of Seven nations summit in England.  The White House declined to comment, but a source familiar with the plan said 200 million doses from the purchase will be donated this year and 300 million during the first half of 2022.

12 People Who Were Canceled fo Using the N-Word like Hunter Biden.  Revealing text messages derived from Hunter Biden's laptop show the president's son repeatedly using racial slurs in messages to his white attorney, but members of the radical left — members of the establishment media, particularly — have remained relatively silent despite their history of calling for the cancellation of individuals who have done the same.  Text messages obtained by the Daily Mail show Hunter Biden repeatedly using the N-word in communication with his attorney, George Mesires.  Figures on the right immediately observed the seeming hypocrisy from left-wing personalities and media outlets, given their penchant for attempting to cancel others for similar improprieties.

Reports: Hunter Biden used N-word with lawyer, had racist Obama meme on laptop.  Hunter Biden repeatedly used the N-word in conversations with his lawyer and kept a racist meme involving his father and former President Barack Obama on his laptop, according to multiple media outlets.  The racist exchanges in conversations with attorney George Mesires, which also included lewd sexual talk, were taken from the presidential son's abandoned laptop, the New York Post and Britain's Daily Mail reported Tuesday [6/8/2021].  In a text exchange on Dec. 13, 2018, the Post reported, Mr. Biden asked the Chicago-based corporate lawyer, "How much money do I owe you."

N-Word Usage Score — Bidens 15, Trumps 0.  Not only has His Fraudulency Joe Biden used the N-word at least 13 times (that we know of), but that chip off the old block named Hunter Biden has used it at least three times (that we know of).  The racist apple does not fall far from the racist tree.  Oh, but former President Trump, the man the fake news media, Democrats, Big Tech, academia, and Hollywood assured us was a demonic racist; how many times has he been caught uttering the N-word, or any racial slur?  Zip, zero, nada, not once, not ever.  Literally, billions and billions of corporate media dollars and Democrat party dollars and dark money dollars have been spent, along with countless man-hours, looking for even one racist slur Trump's uttered, just one that a man who's been world-famous for four decades has uttered.  They came up so empty all they could do was fabricate lies and hoaxes, like the "very fine people" hoax.

Leo Terrell Goes OFF: Biden Family Is a 'Klan Family' and Joe Is the 'Imperial Wizard'.  Joe Biden's son Hunter Biden appears to not be able to escape controversy with his laptop and emails.  It has happened to him before with various photos and emails found on the laptop and it has happened again, this time with racist language, The Daily Mail reported in an exclusive story.  During an interview on Fox News, conservative commentator Leo Terrell unleashed on "racist" Joe and Hunter Biden.

Grand theft:  More say Biden [is] taking credit for Trump achievements.  When it comes to giving credit to former President Donald Trump on issues ranging from the coronavirus vaccine to the improving economy, President Joe Biden and his team have gone radio silent.  But a new survey of likely voters shows that they haven't.  In fact, in the latest Zogby Poll provided to Secrets, likely voters, by a 49%-37% margin, believe Biden is taking credit for Trump's achievements.

A New Hunter Biden Scandal Emerges That the Media May Be Unable to Ignore.  Unlike many traditional media organizations, we've reported extensively on the various scandals related to President Biden's son Hunter Biden, like the laptop emails which inadvertently led to the release of a treasure trove of damaging information on both Bidens, Hunter Biden's post-election admission that he was under investigation by the DOJ, his business dealings with Chinese entities, and so much more.  But while "news" outlets like CNN and the New York Times at best grit their teeth through bare-minimum "reporting" on Hunter Biden (if at all), a new scandal involving the president's son may finally be the one that reporters simply cannot ignore.

We Finally Found the Russian Collusion! (It's in the Oval Office Right Now).  Everything Trump did or at least tried to do promoted our (and Europe's) interests while taking a strong stance against Putin's.  Everything Biden is doing will weaken our defenses and energy independence, fill Putin's coffers with oil dollars, and strengthen his position versus Ukraine and our NATO allies.  If Biden were openly colluding with Putin, what would he be doing any differently?

Political winds shift against Biden.  The atmosphere is changing fast for President Biden.  Sen. Joe Manchin's (D-W.Va.) opposition to weakening the filibuster has thrown the president's legislative agenda into flux.  The COVID-19 vaccination push has hit serious resistance, meaning Biden could fail to meet a key benchmark for the first time.  And the economic picture is mixed, with some weaker-than-expected employment data and new fears about inflation, even as jobs return and businesses reopen.

White House Admits Joe Biden Ignored D-Day; Claims It's 'Close to His Heart'.  The White House argued Monday that the historic D-Day mission was important to President Joe Biden, despite his failure to follow the lead of past presidents by publicly acknowledging the anniversary.  [Tweet]  White House press secretary Jen Psaki addressed Biden's failure to acknowledge the D-Day anniversary during the daily press briefing, after the snub was first highlighted by Breitbart News on Sunday [6/6/2021].  "I can tell you that certainly his value for the role that the men who served on D-Day, and the memory of them, the families who have kept their memories alive over the course of years on this day is something the president has spoken to many many times in the past, it's close to his heart," she said about Biden, after a question from Peter Doocy of Fox News.

Biden tells US graduate class of 2021 that systemic racism is one of 'the greatest crises of our time' and compares it to the Vietnam War.  President Joe Biden told new graduates that systemic racism is one of the 'greatest crises of our time' and said it was an 'inflection point' similar to the Vietnam War.  Biden's brief video message to graduates was released by the White House under his @POTUS address as the coronavirus pandemic has put a dent in commencement ceremonies.  Comparing today's students to those who graduated during the era of the civil rights and anti-war protest movements, Biden encouraged them to seize the moment to tackle climate change and systemic racism which he described as one of 'the great crises of our time'.

Exactly what Barack H. Obama would do:
Who need the pipeline and jobs in America?  Biden reportedly allowed U.S. import of Iranian oil despite sanctions.  The Biden administration imported a rare cargo of 1.033 million barrels of Iranian crude in March despite sanctions on Iran's energy sector, data from the U.S. Energy Information Administration showed.  The cargo is only the second oil import by the United States from Iran since late 1991.  [Tweet]  In 2020, the Trump administration imposed sweeping economic sanctions against Iran's oil sector as tensions between Washington and Tehran continued to escalate in the days leading up to the American presidential election.

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

Hunter Biden was hired by a Romanian real estate tycoon to overturn his bribery conviction through a massive propaganda campaign.  Hunter Biden and a former FBI director were hired by a Romanian tycoon later convicted of bribery — and represented him in meetings with top U.S. officials — emails from Hunter's laptop show.  Romanian real estate tycoon Gabriel Popoviciu was convicted in his home country in 2016 of bribing a university official to buy a 550-acre plot of government-owned land for a drastically reduced price.  Popoviciu hired Hunter earlier that year as part of an influence campaign to persuade anti-corruption prosecutors to cut a deal or drop the case.

Biden Says He's 'Very Confident' in Scandal-Plagued Dr. Fauci.  Joe Biden on Friday [6/4/2021] said he was "very confident" in Dr. Anthony Fauci when asked about his embattled medical advisor during a press conference in Delaware.  Fauci has been under fire from Republicans after explosive emails released earlier this week showed that he was aware of evidence supporting the Wuhan lab-leak theory, and quietly worked with self-interested scientists to cover it up.  The White House, meanwhile has defended the longtime National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) director.  "Do you have confidence in Dr. Fauci?" a reporter shouted as Biden was leaving the room at the Rehoboth Beach Convention Center following his remarks about the May jobs report.  Biden poked his head out from behind the door to answer the question.  "Yes, I'm very confident in Dr. Fauci," he replied.

Democrat lobbying firm linked to Hunter Biden and Burisma offered Ukrainian prosecutor 'access' to the Clinton campaign in 2016, Obama State Department official email shows.  Former Ukrainian prosecutor Yuriy Lutsenko said he had been pitched by a lobbying firm linked to Hunter Biden and the energy company Burisma, offering him 'high levels' of access to members of the Clinton campaign ahead of the 2016 election, according to newly released emails.  They raise fresh questions about the work of Blue Star Strategies after it emerged that the Justice Department was investigating its work.  And it demonstrates that while probes of foreign lobbying efforts have concentrated on former President Trump and his allies, there may be legal jeopardy for firms linked to the Democratic Party.

Biden's Tulsa remarks should be judged in the context of his own racist past.  In his speech in Tulsa on Tuesday, newly minted hyperprogressive Joe Biden once again declared that terrorism from white supremacy is a bigger threat to the homeland than ISIS or al Qaeda, citing "the intelligence community" as his source.  At one point in his latest diatribe, the unifier-in-chief took a detour down memory lane to emphasize to his audience just how racist the country that elected him is.  "If my memory is correct," he can be heard saying in the video that follows, "there were 37 members of the House of Representatives who were open members of the Klan.  There were five members of the United States Senate, open members of the Klan."  [Video clip]

Hunter Biden's Laptop Keeps Doling Out More News About Joe's Sleazeball Operations, But No One Cares.  [Scroll down]  For Joe Biden, his son, Hunter, left his laptop at a repair shop in Delaware, where the owner made copies of the hard drive and gave one to the FBI and the other to Rudy Giuliani's lawyer.  The New York Post reported on the shady dealings, one of which was corroborated by Tony Bobulinski, a former Biden associate, who also turned over all documents and devices that involved a failed deal with CEFC China Energy.  This deal was hashed out while Joe was still vice president.  Oh, and it blew up the lie that Joe knew nothing about what Hunter was doing.  He knew from the get-go.  He was invited to meet and greets when Hunter was on the board of Burisma.  He also participated in dinner meetings arranged by Hunter with disreputable business leaders from central Asia.  This is Joe's nest egg, which he has smartly distributed to his other family members.  They hold on to his share until he leaves public life presumably.  The NY Post editorial board has done well to go after this real story of corruption.  This was the 2020 October surprise that was suffocated with a pillow, a sign of how powerful the liberal media establishment is at protecting their own.

I'm Tired of Joe Biden Calling Me a Terrorist.  Since the attacks of September 11, 2001, the Democrats have expended enormous amounts of energy not calling real terrorists, well, terrorists.  They've worked so hard to twist reality to fit their identity politics hallucination that it's broken them.  Or was breaking them, to be more precise.  Donald Trump broke them.  That mental and emotional breakage is now manifesting as a lust for finally labeling people as terrorists.  Sadly, they're labeling the wrong people.  It's no big secret that Joe Biden [...] was a blithering idiot even before this blank-eyed, empty-headed Biden incarnation we're being subjected to came on the scene.  America is now suffering under a lethal combination of Biden's natural stupidity and the fact that his diminished capacity makes him so easily manipulated by the false narrative pimps.  Some of the most awful people in the land can make the president of the United States lie about anything.

Exactly what Barack H. Obama would have done:
Biden Administration Rewards Terrorists:  Abbas and Hamas.  US Secretary of State Antony Blinken's May 25 announcement that the Biden administration will ask Congress to allocate $75 million in aid to the Palestinians and that Washington will reopen the US Consulate in Jerusalem — which previously had served as a de facto embassy handling US relations with the Palestinians — is sending the wrong message to the leaders of the Palestinians.  First, these overtures signal to Palestinian Authority (PA) President Mahmoud Abbas that the US will support and lavish funding on any Arab leader who seriously abuses not only his own people but also his neighbors.  This policy would also include leaders such as Vladimir Putin in Russia, Xi Jinping in China and "Supreme Guide" Ali Khamenei in Iran, as well as other despots.  One pretext for the war that Hamas initiated was that Abbas had cancelled parliamentary elections to have been held in May and July.  The real reason the elections were canceled was that they would have resulted in another victory for Hamas.

Biden, Jill headed to beach house midweek, marks 12th Delaware trip in 4 months.  President Biden on Wednesday will make his 12th trip to Delaware since taking office to spend two nights at his beach house.  The trip to Rehoboth Beach will end a short work week for Biden, who returned to DC on Monday morning after spending most of Memorial Day weekend at his home in Wilmington, Del.  The beach trip will coincide with first lady Jill Biden's 70th birthday on Thursday.  The trip was first reported upon notice of a Federal Aviation Administration notice restricting local airspace from Wednesday to Friday.  The White House did not immediately offer a comment on the trip.

Biden's Dishonest Domestic Terrorism Claims.  It was hardly surprising when President Biden used his speech on the 100th anniversary of the Tulsa Massacre to exacerbate racial tensions by shamelessly revising the history of black progress during the past century.  Such demagoguery has long been a standard Democratic tactic.  It was, however, startling to hear him claim that "Terrorism from white supremacy is the most lethal threat to the homeland today, not Isis, not Al-Qaeda — white supremacists."  If Biden truly believes this, he is unfit to be the commander in chief.  Despite his insistence that this information was provided by the "intelligence community," a joint report from the FBI and the DHS clearly refutes this claim.

Joe Biden Makes Racist Comments About Black Entrepreneurs.  On Tuesday [6/1/2021], while commemorating the 100th anniversary of the Tulsa race massacre, Joe Biden managed to say something so ridiculously racist that it's hard not to cringe.  "The data shows young black entrepreneurs are just as capable of succeeding given the chance as white entrepreneurs are," Biden said.  "But they don't have lawyers.  They don't have, they don't have accountants, but they have great ideas."  "Does anyone doubt this whole nation would be better off from the investments those people make?" he added.  "And I promise you that's why I set up this National Small Business Administration that's much broader because they're going to get those loans."  [Video clip]  "These people"?  Black people don't have lawyers or accountants?  Was he reading off a teleprompter or going rogue with those comments?

The Hunter Biden Omission Continues.  It's a feeling you get that echoes last fall, a sense that every new example of investigative journalism on the Hunter Biden laptop is going to be ignored by the "mainstream media." To be fair, when they didn't ignore it back then, they constantly implied it was a Russian disinformation plot.  On May 28, the New York Post returned to the corrupt scene with a story on how "A photo shows Joe Biden with a pair of his troubled son's business associates from Kazakhstan" at the Georgetown power-dining spot Café Milano.  The photo "shows the Bidens smiling while flanked by Kazakhstani oligarch Kenes Rakishev and Karim Massimov, a former prime minister of Kazakhstan." The Post reported this event occurred on April 26, 2015, while Biden was vice president.  A third man, banker Marc Holtzman, emailed Hunter Biden following the gathering.  "Thank you for an amazing evening, wonderful company and great conversation," wrote Holtzman, then chairman of Kazakhstan's largest bank.  "I look forward to seeing you soon and to many opportunities to work closely together."

Joe Biden Thinks He Was Sworn Into Office 15 Months Ago.  Joe Biden on Wednesday delivered remarks on his administration's Covid-19 response and vaccination program.  [Biden quote omitted for brevity, and because he was just reading from a teleprompter, and an hour later, he wouldn't have remembered anything he said if a reporter had asked him, which is something that will never happen.]  Biden also got confused (again) and said January 20 was 15 months ago.  Dementia Joe thinks he was sworn into office 15 months ago.  [Video clip]

Hunter Biden's 'stripper' baby mama was an Employee at his firm when she became pregnant.  Hunter Biden claimed he had 'no recollection' of the Arkansas woman who bore his child — but texts reveal that she worked for him, and that she told him about the pregnancy in 2018.  The bombshell messages also show that just three months after Lunden Roberts gave birth to their baby girl, Navy Joan Roberts, Hunter asked his assistant to make sure that the new mother had been kicked off his company's health insurance plan.  The texts are on Hunter's abandoned laptop, obtained and exclusively verified by

Hunter Biden Claimed He Didn't Know His Baby's Mama — Turns Out She Was On His Company's Health Insurance Plan.  Hunter Biden claimed he didn't remember his baby's mama — now it turns out she was on his company's health insurance plan and he sent a text ordering she be taken off of insurance.  The Daily Mail released another Hunter Biden story today.  It turns out Hunter did know his baby's mama and he had her kicked off of his company's insurance plan after she got pregnant.

Leo Terrell Debones Biden, Says: 'Somebody Needs to Tell Him He's a Racist'.  Leo Terrell doesn't think too highly of Joe Biden.  As covered by RedState's Bonchie, the President gave a speech in Tulsa, Oklahoma Tuesday that may not have hit it out of the park.  Firstly, Joe laid into Caucasian corruption:  According to the Commander-in-Chief, "White supremacists are a greater threat than ISIS and Al Qaeda."  But if you wonder just how supreme white racists are, here's a path to better understanding.  Consider the fact that black people can't get lawyers. [...] [Tweet]  It seems Joe really wants to help those black people.  He'd love for 'em to be able to vote — if only they could figure out how to get online.

Biden stupidly tried to bully Sens. Manchin and Sinema with yet another big lie in Tulsa.  I was utterly disgusted yesterday [6/1/2021] watching President Biden speak in Tulsa on the solemn occasion of the 100th anniversary of race riots there that cost lives and destroyed a community of African Americans.  Biden dishonored the memory of the victims by politicizing the event, primarily directing his bile against Republicans, whom he lied about and demonized as racists.  I turned off the coverage and missed Biden very foolishly turning his lies into an attempt to bully fellow Democrats whose support he badly needs.

Joe Biden Says Black Entrepreneurs Don't Succeed Like Whites Because They Don't Know How to Find Lawyers or Accountants.  Joe Biden on Tuesday delivered a speech on the 100-year anniversary of the Tulsa Race Massacre.  Biden was being his old perverted, racist self on Tuesday [6/1/2021].  He just can't help himself.  Joe Biden made a racist remark during his speech after telling little girls in pigtails they would get ice cream if they sat through his speech.  "The data shows young black entrepreneurs are just as capable of succeeding given the chance as white entrepreneurs are, but they don't have lawyers, they don't have accountants, but they have great ideas," Biden said.

Joe Biden Lies His Head off About Manchin and Sinema.  Does Joe Biden ever get anything right?  It's a good question.  He surely doesn't like to own any failure and he likes to shift blame when it happens. [...] The issue is not that Manchin and Sinema have voted differently so far, the issue is they are against blowing up the filibuster so Democrats can't pistol-whip things through without 60 votes.  That's what's at issue here.  Biden wants to eliminate that so Republicans can't use the filibuster to block anything.  Biden wants to eliminate minority party rights, despite the fact that he's fought FOR the filibuster for most of his career in the Senate.  Despite the fact that the Democrats relied on it heavily last year, using it over 300 times.  But now it's "Jim Crow" and "racist."

A Truly Fraudulent Presidency.  Earlier in Joe Biden's presidency, we wondered if his wife Jill was running the White House, and in effect the country.  It's still not out of the question, but it's beginning to look more like Chief of Staff Ron Klain, unelected and not confirmed by the Senate, is the real president.  This should make all Americans uncomfortable.  Klain, who was the vice president's chief of staff when Biden held that office, has been called "the man executing Biden's mission" (which seems to be carrying out the Cloward-Piven model that advocates manufacturing a political and economic crisis so that politicians can accrue more power in order to fix it, and use that power to kill off capitalism).  He's also been called Biden's "co-pilot and fixer."

Hunter Biden's laptop: most media just ignore it.  Hunter Biden's laptop continues to yield [condemnatory] information that shows his dad, President Joe Biden, played a significant and knowing role in his son's sleazy influence-peddling.  And while the media efforts to pretend these revelations are nothing but "Russian disinformation" have ceased, The [New York] Post's scoops still get ignored by outlets that would be all over them if they were about the Trump family.  The latest, of course, is the photographic evidence that then-Veep Joe attended an April 16, 2015, dinner with shady Ukrainian, Russian and Kazakh "businessmen" and even posed for photos with the unseemly guests.  To put some face-saving cover on the event in the private "Garden Room" at Café Milano, a posh Georgetown eatery ("Where the world's most powerful people go," run its promos), Hunter billed it as "ostensibly to discuss food security," as he e-mailed one guest, and invited several officials from the World Food Program.

Hunter Biden violated divorce settlement by not paying delinquent taxes.  Although Hunter Biden made millions, he hampered his ex-wife's quest to build a new life after their 2017 divorce by refusing to pay back property taxes or deed over one of their homes to her, according to documents obtained by the Washington Examiner.  Biden's actions violated his divorce settlement agreement and resulted in the federal government garnishing Kathleen Biden's $5,345 tax return.  She was also unable to refinance a home in her own name in 2018, Kathleen Biden's divorce attorney, Rebekah Sullivan, wrote in a letter to Hunter Biden.  At the time, Biden was making up to $50,000 a month from his consultant job with the Ukrainian gas company Burisma Holdings.  Property records show the couple owned homes in Washington, D.C., Delaware, and on a lake in Indiana.

Mark Meadows Teases Huge Revelation About Corrupt Biden Family Businesses.  A former top Trump White House official is teasing a major revelation about the corrupt Biden family and their foreign business dealings.  During an interview on Newsmax, former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows suggested he may know about the Biden family's business dealings.  "I can tell you, there is more to come with Hunter Biden," Meadows said.

Mark Meadows says 'more to come with Hunter Biden'.  A top Trump White House official suggested the public will be hearing more about President Joe Biden's son in the future.  Former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows teased what he may know about the Biden family's business dealings during an interview Wednesday [5/28/2021] on Newsmax.  "I can tell you, there is more to come with Hunter Biden," Meadows told host Grant Stinchfield.  "It's amazing how Joe Biden and Hunter Biden actually had a quid pro quo, and to accuse President Trump of using his influence to enrich his family was just not accurate," Meadows added.  "And now, what we're seeing is perhaps the real influence-peddling that took place was by then-Vice President Joe Biden."

Joe Biden Is Sick.  The 78-year-old President of the United States, Joe Biden, is not well.  He is suffering from an obvious mental decline.  Americans are not sure of his exact condition because he has not released any mental competency test results.  When he was asked about it during the presidential campaign, he responded in anger and accused the news reporter who posed the question of being a "junkie."  Clearly, Biden does not exhibit the same mental acuity that he did as a United States Senator.  Comparing videos of Senator Biden versus President Biden shows he is a shadow of his former self.  The younger Biden was much sharper and able to engage in wide-ranging, rapid-fire conversations.  Today, President Biden often stumbles through his speeches, having to repeat passages that he could not communicate correctly.  Even more troubling, he frequently forgets what he is doing or where he is going, showing a much more severe decline than the normal aging process.

Biden vs.  Alzheimers.  In the week leading up to Memorial Day 2021, President Biden made a number of incredibly stupid remarks. [...] I have to leave out some good ones, but I think the absolute best Bidenism of the week occurred at the 23:26 mark of Biden's Cuyahoga Community College speech:  "Folks, diseases like Alzheimer's, diabetes, cancers, they're all on the cusp of being able to be dealt with.  You know, if we don't do something about Alzheimer's in America, every single, solitary, hospital bed that exists in America, as the nurses can tell you, every single one, will be occupied in the next 15 years with an Alzheimer's patient.  [E]very one, costing us an excess of a trillion dollars."  No mothers giving birth.  No cancer patients.  No accident victims.  No heart patients.  No narcotics overdoses or gun shooting victims.  Nothing but Alzheimer's patients.  First of all, who are these "nurses"?  And furthermore, when one thinks about it, during the next 15 years we should expect to see Alzheimer's Disease deaths decline.

Rep. Mike Turner Predicts Biden Will Dismiss Investigation Into COVID-19 Origins.  Republican Ohio Rep. Mike Turner said Sunday that he believes President Joe Biden will dismiss any investigation that blames the coronavirus on the Wuhan lab because he "has no interest in pursuing China."  "He's already blown it off in a number of ways to indicate that it's not important.  I mean, remember, he was uninterested in the origins of the virus, but wanted to give the vaccine of Pfizer and Moderna to China," Turner told Fox News' "Sunday Morning Futures."  [Video clip]

Biden gets 1500 down votes out of 7300 viewers
7,300 People Tune in to White House YouTube Channel to Watch Joe Biden Deliver Memorial Day Service Remarks.  Joe Biden on Saturday delivered remarks at an annual Memorial Day Service in Delaware.  Biden slurred his way through a 9 minute speech. [...] 7,300 people tuned in to the White House's YouTube channel to watch Biden speak.

For Biden, the White House is 'a Monday-through-Friday kind of place'.  Beginning in 1973, when he was a United States Senator from Delaware, Joe Biden had a ritual: nearly every evening he would hop a train back to Wilmington after his work day on Capitol Hill, spending most nights and weekends at the place he considered home, 100 miles from Washington. [...] Turns out old habits die hard.  Since taking office four months ago, the President has spent more weekends away from the White House than he has stayed there, almost three times as many.  Counting this Memorial Day weekend, Biden has been in Wilmington nine weekends and passed five weekends at the presidential retreat, Camp David, in rural Maryland.  The numbers far exceed any modern president's weekends off-campus at this point in his tenure.  "He thinks of (the White House) more like a Monday-through-Friday kind of place," said one of several people familiar with Biden's thinking who spoke to CNN for this story and were granted anonymity in order to preserve relationships.  This person said the people's house was akin to presidential corporate housing.  "Really, really high-end corporate housing."

GOP Senator Ron Johnson Says He Was "Set Up" by FBI Agents to Stop Him From Talking about Crackhead Hunter Biden.  Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI) joined Dan Bongino on the Dan Bongino Show on Friday [5/28/2021].  During their discussion, Senator Johnson said he was "set up" by FBI-Stasi agents to stop him from talking about Hunter Biden and his filthy perverted lifestyle.

Biden keeps rewarding the world's villains.  Take Hamas, which just agreed to a cease-fire for the faceoff it started by launching hundreds, eventually thousands, of rockets at Israeli civilians.  Even before that, Biden dropped the Trump policy of refusing aid to the Palestinian Authority until it ends its support of terrorism, promising $250 million in assistance — in potential violation of the Taylor Force Act, since the PA continues to pay "salaries" to imprisoned terrorists and the survivors of ones who died in the act.  This week, Secretary of State Antony Blinken promised more aid, upping the total to $360 million, theoretically to help rebuild in Gaza.  Yet even State admits there's "no guarantee" Hamas won't divert the money to, for example, rebuilding its tunnels for terrorists to sneak into Israel.

The Editor says...
Venal and corrupt politicians reward the people to whom they owe favors.  In Joe Biden's case, this list appears to include the labor unions, the electric car lobbyists, the environmental lobbyists, Planned Parenthood, China, Iran, and Barack H. Obama.  Who benefits from high gas prices?  Who benefits from wide-open borders?  Who benefits from inflation?  Who benefits from legalized marijuana?  Who benefits from tax increases?  Who benefits from prolonged Covid-19 hysteria?  Who benefits men identifying as women?  Who benefits from anything accomplished by any of Joe Biden's numerous executive orders?

Biden's Russian Collusion.  Is Joe Biden a Russian asset?  After reading this tale of three pipelines, that unhappy ending will be hard to avoid.  First, on Jan. 20, Biden's first afternoon as president, he ditched the Trump-approved Keystone XL pipeline.  Some 11,000 high-paying jobs, many unionized, vanished.  While these suddenly unemployed Americans sulked, Russian President Vladimir Putin cheered.  By trapping Canadian oil underground, Keystone's cancellation curbed long-term supplies of crude oil.  This boosted global prices for Russia's key export.  Indeed, for this and other reasons, crude has crept from $53 per barrel at Biden's inauguration to $67 Thursday — up 26%.  Second, Colonial Pipeline shut itself down May 7 after a ransomware attack.  Carteresque gasoline lines soon stretched from Georgia to Washington, D.C.  Biden stayed mum until May 10, when he tepidly exonerated the Kremlin.

Biden's Brain Implodes Again With Math, Facts and All That Confusing Stuff.  Joe Biden's brain really hit full-time overload today [5/27/2021].  Biden visited the Manufacturing Technology Center at Cuyahoga Community College Metro Campus in Cleveland, for about three hours, to promote his Blue Collar Blueprint for America plan.  Biden was pushing for free tuition for community college students[.]  Apparently, this event today was a bit too much.  It started off badly when he seemed to want to wander out of the frame of the camera, not really clear that he was doing so.

Biden Wanders Away From Podium Mid-Presser Then Says That Every Single Hospital Bed Will Be Occupied By An Alzheimer's Patient In 15 Years.  President Joe Biden's $6 trillion budget proposal for next year would run a $1.8 trillion federal government deficit despite a raft of new tax increases on corporations and high-income people designed to pay for his ambitious spending plans. [...] While speaking at Cuyahoga Community College in Cleveland at one point he wandered away from the lectern and looked lost.  [Video clip]  After the fiasco, Biden went on to say that every single hospital bed will be occupied by an Alzheimer's patient in 15 years!

Xi and His Boys Enjoy a Good Laugh After a Biden Advisor Bends the Knee.  I'm not sure we've had a presidential administration as weak as Joe Biden's since, well, the Obama administration.  Actually, when I put it that way, I guess it hasn't really be that long.  Still, the stakes are high and making impotence a key part of one's foreign policy is a recipe for disaster.  Unfortunately, that's exactly what Biden and his handlers are doing.

Fawning NYT, WaPo Reports Portray Biden as a Child in Need of Guidance and 'Treats'.  As anyone can plainly see, Joe Biden isn't there anymore.  Sure, there's an older dude in the Oval Office who looks like him, but the upstairs part of him has clearly been vacated.  Those of us who are honest about history would like to point out that the younger, fully functional Joe Biden wasn't exactly hanging around any Mensa meetings.  We're not always known for letting the cream rise to the political top here in the U.S. [...] The nation's two biggest biased propaganda rags — The New York Times and The Washington Post — recently did profiles on the alleged president that are part creative fiction and part parents cheering on a slow toddler who finally managed to not eat the crayon. [...] WaPo should have tasked this fluff job to a more adept writer.  The Times profile is worse in different ways.  Three writers penned a six-million-word article that attempts to portray Biden as oh-so-engaged in the process and super with-it.  It's positively exhausting.

Joe Biden Scolds Republicans for Blocking Jan. 6 Investigation of 'Greatest Assault Since the Civil War'.  President Joe Biden scolded Republicans Thursday for blocking a Democrat-led effort to investigate the January 6 riots on Capitol Hill.  The president spoke about the upcoming Senate vote to establish a commission as he made a stop for ice cream while visiting Ohio.  The vote is expected to fail, as not enough Senate Republicans plan to support the legislation.  Biden purchased an ice cream cone and one for a bystander, prompting reporters to ask what flavor he ordered.  "Chocolate Chocolate Chip," Biden replied.  "What's your message to Republicans who are prepared to block the January 6th commission?" the reporter continued.  "Eat some chocolate, chocolate chip," Biden said.

Dumb and getting dumber.  We've watched the past four months as the Biden administration has ushered in a rash of idiocy, leaping from one harebrained concept to the next like folks in an attention deficit disorder counseling session. [...] During the election, Biden's advantage was that nobody, including himself, had any idea what his campaign platform was.  Once elected he collected the dumbest street rubbish and ran with it.  If he had mentioned what he was going to do in advance, the American people wouldn't have elected him, they would have lynched him.

'Keep That Between Us': Hunter Set Up Meeting Between Then-VP Biden, His Shady Business Partners.  Joe Biden, as vice president, reportedly met his son's business partners from Ukraine, Russia, and Kazakhstan in Washington, DC, over dinner in 2015.  The revelation, made by the New York Post Wednesday [5/26/2021], further fuels suspicions that the elder Biden likely knew of his son's business activities overseas, despite the president's repeated claims of ignorance of his son's dealings abroad with businesses and government officials.  Critics, including some of his former business partners, have accused Hunter of using his father's name and political connections for personal gain, particularly when it comes to gaining access to business dealings overseas.

Joe Biden lied about his involvement in Hunter's Ukrainian affairs.  Through the presidential campaign, Joe Biden was clear:  His son Hunter's affairs in Ukraine were his own business and Biden had nothing to do with them.  Like Sergeant Schultz, he knew nothing.  Even when one of Hunter's old partners, Tony Bobulinski, said that Biden was absolutely involved in Hunter's China business affairs, Biden continued to deny involvement.  However, emails from Hunter's abandoned computer show that, while Biden was vice president, he met the whole Russian and Ukraine cabal for dinner.  In September 2019, the Democrats, as part of their endless efforts to oust Trump, charged that he committed an impeachable offense during the call.  This faked charge stemmed from Trump asking Ukraine's president to investigate Hunter Biden's involvement with Burisma, which may have led to Biden extorting the new Ukraine government by threatening to withhold badly needed funds if it didn't fire the prosecutor looking into Burisma.  By attacking Trump, Democrats were desperately trying to divert attention from the fact that Biden is one of the most corrupt politicians in American political history, who used his drug-addled, debauched son as a conduit for payments from foreign governments.

Hunter Biden brought VP Joe to dinner with shady business partners.  Joe Biden met with Ukrainian, Russian and Kazakhstani business associates of his son's at a dinner in Washington, DC, while he was vice president, records on Hunter Biden's abandoned laptop show.  The dinner, on April 16, 2015, was held in the private "Garden Room" at Café Milano, a Georgetown institution whose catchphrase is:  "Where the world's most powerful people go."  The next day, Hunter received an email from Vadym Pozharskyi, an executive of the Ukrainian energy company Burisma, to thank him for introducing him to his father.  "Dear Hunter, thank you for inviting me to DC and giving an opportunity to meet your father and spent [sic] some time together," Pozharskyi wrote on April 17, 2015.

Hunter Biden took a big pay cut from Burisma after 'The Big Guy' lost office....  Among the Bidens, coincidences abound.  So sure enough, the New York Post, in its daily journalistic diggings, found this beaut from deep inside the bowels of Hunter Biden's abandoned laptop computer. [...] Joe in office?  The money flows.  Joe out of office?  Much less cash to be paid.  Funny how that happens.  And no, this wasn't based on some oil or natural gas bust going on in Europe, energy prices being volatile things that can affect profits of companies.  Nope, prices of natural gas imports in Europe were largely flat at the time (see the second chart on the 'interactive' tab), meaning Burisma's profits were likely steady at the time.

Blue Pill or Red Pill — Choose Wisely.  [Scroll down]  All Joe needed to do was provide normalcy rather than demand unity — and issue everyone their daily dose of the blue.  Instead, Joe has behaved like an unsupervised child in a candy store, indulging his every wish.  He shocked the body politic with too much radicalism, too fast — and it has awakened the citizenry for a brief moment.  Joe "red pilled" the body politic.  In reality, the blue pill (leftist propaganda) is losing its efficacy.  Once people know propaganda is propaganda, they stop believing the propaganda.  I know this is a difficult concept for the left to grasp, but when one catches someone lying to them, they're less likely to believe future lies.  The propagandists overplayed their hand.  The propaganda is no longer convincing.  At the same time, Joe has hit us with an unprecedented level of radicalism which runs counter to logic and common sense.

Biden's unprecedented purge of federal advisory boards accelerates.  The Biden administration wants to force taxpayers to continue to pay for ugly, unpopular federal buildings and is resorting to possibly illegal demands for resignations-or-be-fired from a federal advisory board more than a century old. [...] Yesterday [5/25/2021], the Biden administration notified four Trump-appointed members of the U.S. Commission of Fine Arts that they must resign by the end of the business day or be terminated, despite the fact that there is no provision for firing members who are appointed to four-year terms.

Joe Biden sure does give China the benefit of the doubt.  I wonder why.
White House won't say if China will be punished if lab leak theory is proven.  The White House said it hasn't ruled any theories out yet on COVID-19's origin but refused to say whether there would be retribution if the tracks led back to a Chinese lab.  "We haven't ruled out anything yet," principal deputy press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre told reporters in her first time at the briefing podium, when asked whether the virus had emerged in a manner that was "deliberate or not an accident."  President Biden said earlier Wednesday [5/26/2021] in a statement that the intelligence community is torn between "two likely scenarios."  He said 'two elements' of the Intelligence Community leaned toward the theory that the virus emerged from human contact with an infected animal and one element leaning toward the accidental lab leak theory.  "The majority of elements do not believe there is sufficient information to assess one to be more likely than the other," Biden said, adding that each theory had been assessed with "low to moderate confidence."

Joe Biden Falsely Claims Donald Trump Campaigned on Idea that 'Black Folks Are Taking Your Job'.  President Joe Biden accused former President Donald Trump of campaigning on the idea that black Americans were taking jobs from the white working class, in an interview published Tuesday [5/25/2021].  Biden spoke to Atlantic reporter Edward-Isaac Dovere about Trump's campaign message in an Oval Office interview. [...] Biden's puzzling claim has no basis in reality, as President Donald Trump repeatedly spoke about rebuilding for the working class for all races, and was especially proud of historically low black unemployment numbers.

Did you lunch-bucket Democrats think you were voting for THIS?
Biden State Dept.  Urging U.S. Embassies to Fly BLM Flags to Mark 1-Year Anniversary of George Floyd's Death.  The Biden State Department is encouraging all U.S. "Diplomatic and Consular posts" to display Marxist Black Lives Matter flags on May 25 to mark the one year anniversary of the death of George Floyd, according to a memo obtained by Human Events reporter Jack Posobiec.  [Tweet]  The memo, signed by Secretary of State Antony Blinken, said the United States would be among "many in the international community" honoring the career criminal. [...] The vandalism and looting that followed the death of Floyd reportedly cost the insurance industry up to $2 billion, more than any other violent demonstrations in recent history.  At least 25 Americans were killed during the unrest, according to the Armed Conflict Location and Event Data project (ACLED).  Additionally, the radical organization's "Defund the Police" agitation has led to a massive surge in violent crime throughout the nation.

Jen Psaki says Biden is so fit that she has trouble keeping up with him.  White House press secretary Jen Psaki told reporters that President Biden is so healthy, she sometimes has a hard time keeping up with him.  During the White House's Monday press conference, Psaki was asked by a reporter about the president's workout routine and if he is still using a Peloton stationary bicycle.  Psaki said she did not have any information to share on Biden's "private exercise regime" but said that she sometimes has trouble keeping up with the 78-year-old president when out and about with him.  "I can tell you, having traveled with him a fair amount, sometimes he's hard to keep up with," Psaki said.

Jen Psaki Says Joe Biden Is So Fit She Has a Hard Time Keeping Up with Him.  The lies they tell get more preposterous by the day.  [Video clip]

Rep. Gaetz:  Has the Transition to Harris Already Begun?  Rep. Matt Gaetz says the transition of power from Joe Biden to Kamala Harris may already be underway.  After Rasmussen reported half the country does not believe Biden is mentally or physically up to the job, Gaetz told War Room not to expect Biden to be around long.  "I think it is reasonable to ask if the transition to Harris has already begun," he said.  After Rasmussen reported half the country does not believe Biden is mentally or physically up to the job, Gaetz told War Room not to expect Biden to be around long.  "I think it is reasonable to ask if the transition to Harris has already begun," he said.

Biden Speaks Absolute Gibberish at FEMA Meeting — His Inability to Speak English is the Real 'Emergency'.  President Joe Biden certainly wasn't elected for his oratorical skills.  But the American people who did vote for him at least expected their incoming president would be able to speak basic English in speeches and at meetings.  Those people would be wrong.  On Monday [5/24/2021], President Biden was called in to receive a hurricane briefing from FEMA. [...] When he attempted to give his thoughts at the FEMA meeting, that's when things got a little jumbled.  "Biden drops his most inspiring line yet at a FEMA roundtable," Newsmax host Benny Johnson noted.

Biden Fails to Condemn Antisemitic Attacks by Pro-Palestinian Activists Nationwide.  Jewish groups wrote to President Joe Biden on Friday [5/21/2021] as he failed to speak out against a wave of antisemitic violence across the nation, as pro-Palestinian activists targeted a synagogue, attacked pro-Israel protesters, and assaulted innocent bystanders.  On Sunday, a synagogue near Chicago was vandalized, and a "Freedom for Palestine" poster was found on the grounds.  On Tuesday, a mob of pro-Palestinian thugs attacked a group of diners in Los Angeles, in what police are investigating as a hate crime.  And on Thursday, pro-Palestinian protesters attacked Jews in Times Square and on 47th Street in New York City.

For the first time, I'm rootin' for Putin, if he will expose Joe Biden's corruption.
What Does Putin Have on Biden?  Only a few months ago, the Biden administration argued that Nord Stream 2, a proposed natural gas pipeline running from Russia to Germany, was "a bad deal" that "exposes Ukraine and Central Europe."  White House press secretary Jen Psaki had noted at the time that any new pipeline carrying the fossil fuel on the continent "goes against Europe's own stated energy and security goals."  This week, Axios reports that President Joe Biden is set to waive sanctions against a major company building the pipeline — as well as its CEO, Matthias Warnig, a former Stasi agent and a Putin, er, associate.  Setting aside a debate over the usefulness of waivers, the muted reaction to the lifting of sanctions once again exposes that the Russian collusion hysteria that enveloped the media and political conversation for nearly five years was a contrived effort to spin a lie.

Notre Dame will NOT give [Biden an] honorary degree amid outrage over his pro-choice views.  Joe Biden will skip a commencement ceremony traditionally attended by presidents amid a row over his pro-abortion views at the Catholic university.  Biden's administration will be the first since Bill Clinton's to skip the University of Notre Dame's commencement ceremony, after more than 4,000 students and alumni signed a petition urging school officials not to invite the president over his pro-choice view on abortion.  A White House official told the Catholic News Agency on May 11 that the president was invited to give a commencement speech and receive an honorary degree from the school but would not attend due to a scheduling conflict.

Joe Biden mistakenly brands Korean President Moon Jae-in 'prime minister'.  Joe Biden mistakenly branded Korean President Moon Jae-in 'prime minister' a day after he called Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu 'president.'  When President Biden, 78, presented 94-year-old Korean War veteran Ralph Puckett with the Medal of Honor on Friday, he said, 'The people in the Republic of Korea haven't forgotten, as evidenced by the fact that the prime minister of Korea is here for this ceremony,' The New York Post reported.  Less than 24 hours earlier, Biden referred to Netanyahu as 'President Netanyahu' during his speech celebrating an Israel-Hamas cease-fire, according to The Post.

Biden confuses job title of South Korean president after mixing up Netanyahu's post.  President Biden on Friday mistakenly called South Korean President Moon Jae-in a "prime minister" — one day after also botching the title of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.  Biden delivered the latest eyebrow-raising remark while presenting 94-year-old Korean War veteran Ralph Puckett with the Medal of Honor.  "The people in the Republic of Korea haven't forgotten, as evidenced by the fact that the prime minister of Korea is here for this ceremony," Biden told Puckett.

Joe Biden sure does a lot of favors for China.  I wonder why.
Biden's Worst Move Yet:  Giving U.S. Vaccine Tech to China.  President Joe Biden is moving to surrender to China U.S. patent and trade secret protections on America's COVID-19 vaccines.  Two of those vaccines, made by American-based Pfizer and Moderna, employ revolutionary mRNA technology.  Specifically, the Biden administration has agreed to support a request by India and South Africa for waivers that would permit members of the World Trade Organization to not enforce laws protecting patents and trade secrets covered under the Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights Agreement (TRIPs).  "This is a global health crisis, and the extraordinary circumstances of the COVID-19 pandemic call for extraordinary measures," declared U.S. Trade Representative Katherine Tai in a May 5 statement.  "The Administration believes strongly in intellectual property protections, but in service of ending this pandemic, supports the waiver of those protections for COVID-19 vaccines."

Why the American People Have Turned Against Biden.  Biden has only been president for a little over 100 days.  He supposedly got the most votes of any candidate in history.  He should be wildly popular right now, considering we're still in the "honeymoon phase" of his presidency.  Instead, Americans have turned on him.  Why?  First, Americans don't believe Biden is the rightful president.  The so-called Silent Majority believes, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that Biden and the Democrats rigged and stole the election.  Second, no one in their right mind believes Biden got the most votes in history.  A senile old man who never left his basement got more votes than former Presidents Obama and Clinton?  No way.  Third, Americans have seen the radical Biden agenda.  It is a communist takeover of the United States, clearly perpetrated by evil globalists who want to destroy America.

Secret Service Records Show Hunter Biden Took at Least 23 flights Through Joint Base Andrews.  Despite this evidence that there was not an "absolute wall" between Hunter and Joe when it comes to business endeavors, the establishment press has shown little interest in exploring whether Hunter was actually leveraging his father's power to enrich himself.  In fact, quite the contrary.  The New York Times, for example, published a story in 2020 portraying Hunter as a skilled artist who was mastering painting.  The article, headlined "There's a New Artist in Town.  The Name Is Biden," un-ironically featured glossy photographs of a relaxed and polished Hunter Biden working away in his studio.  The American public has been told consistently that Hunter Biden is as pure as the driven snow.  Joe Biden called his son "the smartest guy I know."  Dr. Jill Biden (Ed.D.) and Joe both expressed confidence that Hunter had done nothing wrong.  And, of course, Joe said he thought it was all Russian disinformation.  And of course, Facebook and Twitter famously censored bombshell reporting by the New York Post on Hunter Biden that has not been proven to be "Russian" or "disinfo."

What Joe Biden Demanded of Israel in Exchange for a Cease-Fire Will Infuriate You.  [Scroll down]  Let's take all three of these things, because they only get more and more absurd as we go.  In regards to the evictions in Sheikh Jarrah, those were Jewish-owned properties that Palestinians had been squatting on for decades, refusing to pay restitution.  The cases were adjudicated through the courts over many years.  Why should Israel simply abscond from lawful evictions because it makes terrorists mad?  Further, how is Israel supposed to lower tensions on the Temple Mount when Palestinians keep attacking Jews who go there, using the mosque as a staging area?  The Temple Mount is already locked down in the sense that Jews aren't even allowed to pray there.  How much more appeasement is necessary?

The Truth Behind Biden's Superpowers.  By all accounts, Joe Biden wasn't expected to be the 21st century's reincarnation of Franklin Delano Roosevelt.  Senator Biden wasn't cerebral; stolidly toed his party's line; smeared Republican Supreme Court nominees; ended up on the wrong side of nearly every major foreign policy decision; and had a penchant for off-color and highly offensive remarks as well as an affinity for plagiarism, which sank his 1988 presidential bid.  Even when he was selected to be vice president (an early indication of then-Senator Barack Obama's decision-making prowess), Biden's singular achievement was milking his contacts with our nation's friends and foes to enrich his ne'er-do-well son, Hunter, and other family members (and likely the "Big Guy," too).  What changed in 2020 for "Racial Jungle" Joe?  What transformed a Delawarean septuagenarian into a Proglogdyte superstar?

Biden, Reversing Trump, Permits a Key Putin Goal: a New Russian Natural Gas Pipeline to Germany.  That the Kremlin had taken over American political institutions through its blackmail control of former President Donald Trump was a media conspiracy theory as pervasive as it was deranged.  This once-exciting script was excavated from the CIA's Cold War basement, dusted off by their operatives, and then kicked off by the intelligence community's purposeful dissemination of the now-debunked Steele Dossier.  And once this fairy tale was launched, there were seemingly no limits on the depths to which media figures would sink to promote it.  Journalists published best-selling books and column after column hyping this melodrama of international intrigue.  In what was just one of many low points, MSNBC's host Chris Hayes earnestly interviewed New York Magazine's Jonathan Chait about the latter's 2018 cover story speculating that Trump may have been groomed as a Russian intelligence asset since 1987.  "Unlikely but possible" declared the on-screen cable graphic as Hayes spoke, summarizing the media's Trump-era renunciation of all standards of rationality and evidence for disseminating unhinged conspiracies to their audience, at great profit for themselves but great harm to everything and everyone else.

A new book savagely attacks Obama from the left.  [Scroll down]  Both Biden and Kamala got reverential treatment, but it was nothing like Obama.  Biden was grandfatherly, experienced, kind, and stable, and he'd learned his White House politics under Obama's aegis.  Kamala was brilliant, multi-racial and multi-cultural, female, and compassionate.  Kamala was sold especially hard because everyone understood that Biden, no matter what he said, wasn't in it for the long haul.  She was obviously going to be the real president, even before Biden inevitably withdrew and she got sworn in.  But as noted, something's been happening with the Democrats.  They should be a jubilant party joyously imposing Marxism on the land, but, instead, they're angry, and they're starting to turn on each other.

Did Hunter Biden Help China Steal Nuclear Technology?  When the Hunter Biden laptop story broke before the November election, the legacy media that functions as the propaganda arm of the Democratic Party swung into action and largely buried the story.  Now, four months into the disastrous Biden Administration, the scope of the corruption of the Biden family is only just now beginning to bubble to the surface.  Hunter was, it appears, the bagman for a family enterprise vacuuming up cash around the world.  The true story may be much worse than that, however.  Hunter may be directly tied to Chinese espionage.

Awkward moments loom for mistake-prone Biden after pandemic.  The White House communications shop has mostly had it easy with President Joe Biden's penchant for generating unwanted headlines with his loose lips in unscripted moments.  But that could soon change.  As the COVID-19 pandemic abates and masking and social distancing precautions ease, Biden left the safe confines of the White House twice this week, with mixed results.  Democrats are not concerned by the headaches Biden's reemergence will likely cause his staff as he enters his second 100 days in office, according to Eric Schultz, one of former President Barack Obama's White House spokespeople.

Biden tries to claim credit for cease-fire between Israel and Hamas.  President Biden sought to take credit for a cease-fire Thursday [5/20/2021] between Israel and Hamas, despite reports that it was Egypt that brokered the peace.  Biden, who spoke at the White House, included a sentence in his remarks commending Egyptian officials for their "critical role" in ending the fighting.  But he repeatedly emphasized the intensive work he said was done by his own administration.  "Over the last 11 days, I spoke with the prime minister six times.  I've also spoken with President Abbas and the Palestinian Authority more the once and part of our intense diplomatic engagement," Biden said, "And I want to also thank secretary of state, the secretary of defense, our national security adviser, and everyone on our team for their incredible efforts to bring this about, this outcome that we're about to see. [...]"

Biden lifts Trump sanctions on Russian pipeline, in exchange for absolutely nothing.  Democrats accused Donald Trump of being too soft on Russia's Vladimir Putin for, suspicious reasons.  Now, it's Mr. Mask, Joe Biden, who's going soft on the Russian leader for life likely.  This week for nothing in return, Biden had his Secretary of State Antony Blinken waive U.S. sanctions on the Russian company building a massive undersea gas pipeline from Russia to Germany.  The pipeline is a huge deal for Russia's economy and prestige and Putin's long-range plans to tempt European countries closer to Moscow's economic orbit and, by extension, weaken NATO.  President Trump had slapped the sanctions on Nord Stream 2 AG and its chief executive officer, Matthias Warnig.  He's a Putin pal, which is how you get ahead in Russia today and, who knows, perhaps some percentage slides back to the Big Guy there too.

The real Joe Biden stands up — again.  The Office Holder Formerly Known as Joe Biden told anyone still harboring doubts all they needed to know about him in half an hour Wednesday [5/19/2021].  He addressed the graduates of the Coast Guard Academy, an elite group of 200, chosen from over 3000 who apply. [...] They listened politely as Biden did four things in rapid succession that revealed his character and fitness to lead.  Spoiler alert:  he can claim neither.  He could not recall the name of the Coast Guard Commander.  No doubt teleprompters were in place, as usual, and perhaps an earpiece, too, but it was beyond him.  He turned away from the microphone for help, then uttered a few garbled syllables.  This comes as no surprise to anyone who has observed his remarkable cognitive decline.  He borrowed without accreditation a longstanding quote about the Coast Guard; namely, that it is "the hard nucleus around which the Navy forms in time of war."  Doing so was a bad idea for a politician known for shameless plagiarism.  Ronald Reagan and Dick Cheney both used the quote in speeches, with greater care about its source.

Joe Biden Begins Yelling in the Middle of a Speech for No Apparent Reason.  Earlier this week and a month after the Senate overwhelmingly passed it 94-1, the House passed the anti-Asian American hate crimes bill also known as the "COVID-19 Hate Crimes Act" in a 364-62 vote.  The signing ceremony for the bipartisan legislation was held today and on hand were of course President Biden and Vice President Harris among other D.C leaders and dignitaries.  Though Biden gave what some media outlets charitably characterized as an "impassioned" speech imploring Americans to come together to stop hate against Asian-Americans, what others saw during Biden's remarks was a man that looked like he was in the middle of a personality change as he began yelling and gesturing animatedly with a wild look in his eyes at one point before settling back down again to finish his speech in almost a whisper.  [Video clip]

The Editor says...
The behavior shown in the video clip is apparently just Biden's obedient response to his coaching and his teleprompter cues.

Biden Is FDR Reincarnated, and Just as Destructive.  It appears as if Joe Biden can't (or won't) remember and is going to repeat what FDR (and others) did.  Politicians (primarily Democrats such as Schumer, Pelosi, Newsom, Cuomo, and Whitmer) wrecked the U.S. economy through a completely unnecessary and wildly inconsistent power-grab.  Now Biden plans to finish it off. [...] About his plan, he said, on March 31, 2021, in Pittsburgh, "It's not a plan that tinkers around the edges.  It's a once-in-a-generation investment in America, unlike anything we've seen or done since we've built the interstate highway system or the space race."  Biden claims spending on infrastructure will "help us compete with China, combat climate change, kickstart economic growth, and, incredibly, reduce the federal deficit."  Did Biden remember when he mentioned the interstate highway system and the space race?  History informs us about an infamous megalomaniac who raised his country's economy out of the doldrums via an Infrastructure and Jobs program:  Hitler.  He built, among other things, autobahns and V-2 rockets.

Biden issues sweeping executive order requiring agencies to combat climate change.  President Joe Biden is directing federal agencies to identify and address financial risks posed by climate change in a sweeping executive order that could affect much of the government budget and many private industries.  The Thursday [5/20/2021] order is the latest action by the Biden administration to enlist the financial sector in fighting climate change, both through dedicated efforts to reduce climate-related economic risks and actions to minimize public investment in fossil fuels. [...] In April, during Biden's climate summit, the White House released the first international climate finance plan.  As part of that plan, Biden pledged that the United States would double the amount of money it offers to developing countries to help curb climate change within the next three years and move away from financing fossil fuel-intensive projects overseas.

The Editor says...
[#1] There are no "financial risks posed by climate change."  If you have financial risks in your future, they have no connection to the changing climate.  [#2] Global Warming, which was Climate Change's maiden name, occurs at a rate of one or two degrees per century.  Maybe less!  That's nothing that we can't deal with.  There is no "climate emergency."

His Returns Show Joe Biden Has Dodged Half A Million In Taxes While Urging Tax Increases.  On Monday [5/17/2021], the delayed due date for filing federal taxes for the last calendar year, the White House made a theatrical show of releasing President Biden's 2020 tax returns.  In so doing, the new administration wanted to show a contrast with Biden's predecessor, Donald Trump, who did not release his tax returns.  But while the White House emphasized the release of Biden's returns, it does not want reporters to scrutinize the content of those returns, because doing so would highlight a pattern of hypocritical behavior by the current president and his family.  To wit:  For the fourth year running, the First Family used a questionable tax loophole to avoid paying more than $500,000 in Medicare and Obamacare taxes — a loophole that the Biden administration now claims it wants to close.

The Biden Honeymoon is Definitely Over.  This isn't the normal grumbling of citizens embarrassed by a President's Texas accent or his mean tweets.  This is the seething anger that one gets when cheated by a con artist.  We were promised a return to normalcy.  What we got was a doddering old fool with the most radical agenda in history. [...] When Joe declared war on the fossil fuel industry it was apparent that his policies would eventually drive-up prices at the pump (and the electric meter).  But gasoline has gone up each week for 17 consecutive weeks — something that hasn't happened since 1994.  That represents a 50% increase in some places.  How many Americans do you suppose live 50% below their means?  Because if they don't, every time they fill up their tank, they have to think about what they'll give up to pay for it.

It's possible that Biden faked a basic task.  Thomas Lifson caught the fact that Biden made a joke that would have sent journalists screaming to their psychiatrists had President Trump made it:  when they asked about Israel, he said he'd run them over.  What someone noticed later is that, in addition to threatening violence to journalists who made him uncomfortable, Biden may have been faking that he was driving.  Sharp-eyed observers noted that his steering wheel didn't control the tires and believe that someone else was driving the car.

Exactly the behavior you would expect ... in North Korea.
Biden Calls Coast Guard Graduates a "Dull Class" and Demands They Clap for Him.  Two factual notes:  (1) Biden is a person of generally intemperate disposition.  (2) The rank and file military do not like him.  The installed White House occupant calls the graduating class of the Coast Guard "dull" after they do not clap for him.

Joe Biden Snaps at Coast Guard Grads for Not Clapping at Applause Line He Plagiarized.  President Joe Biden admonished Coast Guard graduates for not clapping for the president at his first speech at a service while in office.  [Video clip]  "I can only assume that you will enjoy educating your family about how the Coast Guard is, quote, 'the hard nucleus around the Navy forms in times of war'," Biden said.  The president was expecting it to be an applause line because that is exactly what Dick Cheney got when he used the phrase in a speech as vice president in May 2008.  Except Biden botched it.

Biden Cites Mass Murderer and Communist in Speech to Coast Guard Cadets.  During his speech to Coast Guard cadets on Wednesday, President Joe Biden appeared to quote mass murder and communist leader Mao Zedong.  "There's a saying... 'Women hold up half the world.'" Biden said as he quoted the communist murder.  "It's an absolutely stupid position not to make sure sure they represent at least half of what we do."

1979 was way better than 2021.  Cyber Buddy Silvio Canto Jr. posted a piece, "Who put the 1979 calendar on the wall?"  His point is the Biden administration is off to a Jimmy Carter start, but I want to thank whoever put that calendar up for reminding us of a much better time than today.  Even at his worse, Carter was better than this president.  Both of course were in way over their heads as president.  But Carter was merely incompetent, while Biden is a mean-spirited, willfully ignorant puppet controlled by an anti-American administration.

White House Occupant:  "Even the Martin Luther King Assassination Did Not Have The Worldwide Impact That George Floyd's Death Did".  Joe Mumbles, the politically installed current occupant of the Oval Office, just said something very revealing:  [Video clip]  Beyond the disrespect to the MLK legacy, this outlook shows a lot of perspective for how the current leftists viewed their intent to manipulate the events around the George Floyd death.

Biden Caught Fake Driving — Someone Else Is Steering Vehicle — It Was All a Stunt!  78-year-old Joe Biden traveled to Dearborn, Michigan on Tuesday to visit the Ford Rouge Electric Vehicle Center.  Biden promoted his highly unpopular $2 trillion infrastructure bill that has nothing to do with the infrastructure that includes $174 billion to develop electric vehicles. [...] Following his speech, the declining septuagenarian was put in an electric vehicle where he pretended to be driving.  This was all a show by his handlers to make Joe Biden look like he's in charge.  [Video clip]

Joe Biden Hits Golf Ball in the Wrong Direction.  American presidents are well known for playing golf, but as the video shows, Joe Biden did not do the White House any favors with his sad excuse for a chip shot during a recent game.  Not only did Biden not get his ball up on the green, he actually hit the ball in the wrong direction and back out onto the fairway.

Spoken like a dictator:
'You're a really dull class': Biden calls out Coast Guard Academy in commencement remarks for not laughing at jokes.  President Joe Biden mirrored former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush's awkward "please clap" moment as he addressed the United States Coast Guard Academy's graduating class of 2021.  "You're a really dull class.  Come on, man.  Is the sun getting to you?" Biden said Wednesday [5/19/2021] in Connecticut after comparing the Coast Guard with the Navy.  "All kidding aside, being here together is a victory in and of itself."  [Tweet]  During his 25 minute-plus speech, Biden also admitted that he needed "absolution" after his college years at the University of Delaware for "minor infractions like using a fire extinguisher to hose down an RA," the abbreviation for residential adviser.  A president traditionally absolves military academy graduates of their own minor infractions.  [Tweet]

Joe Biden Jumbles Words, Repeats Lie That His Great-Grandfather Was a Coal Miner.  Joe Biden once again lied about his great-grandfather being a coal miner.  78-year-old Joe Biden traveled to Dearborn, Michigan on Tuesday to visit the Ford Rouge Electric Vehicle Center.  Biden promoted his highly unpopular $2 trillion infrastructure bill that has nothing to do with infrastructure that includes $174 billion to develop electric vehicles.  At one point Joe Biden repeated the lie that his "great grandpop" was a coal miner.

Corruption: New Emails Show Joe Biden Was Directly Tied to Hunter Biden Business Plans.  A newly discovered email shows Hunter Biden and an associate discussing plans to include then-Vice President Joe Biden in future business plans.  The bombshell email raises new questions about Hunter and Joe Biden's potentially corrupt conduct while in office.  "In order to develop this as a platform for both JRBs I think it is imperative we (the three of us) have full control come 2016 when JRB1 comes on board," Hunter Biden wrote to Jeff Cooper back in 2014.  "JRB" is referring to Joseph Robinette Biden, the current president.  "I think we can pull this off," Cooper replied.

Biden's 'Uncle Joe' moments feed Republican claims someone else is in charge.  Republicans contend Biden's sometimes-doddering ways are calculated to obscure his liberal priorities as he, his aides, and their congressional allies take advantage of narrow majorities on Capitol Hill before the 2022 midterm elections.  Biden's folksy reputation and low-key approach to the presidency belies the political transformation being spearheaded by his administration, according to Republican strategist Jeanette Hoffman.  "These things when Joe Biden says, 'It's not me, I'm not in charge,' it's part of the whole shtick that he has going that he's just 'Uncle Joe' and you can trust him.  He's just a nice guy, and he's not out to do anything crazy or make any big changes, but that couldn't be further from the truth because this is the most liberal and radical socialist agenda our country has ever seen," she told the Washington Examiner.

On Israel/Hamas Conflict, CNN Paints Picture of Feckless, Golfing Biden.  What got into CNN this morning [5/17/2021]?  We're accustomed to the network's unrelenting coverage of how the Republican Party is endangering America, but when it came to the current conflict between Israel and Hamas, the tone turned against President Biden.  The media finds space to criticize Biden, when it's coming from the hard left.  New Day painted a surprisingly negative picture of a feckless, golfing, Biden lacking the relationship with Bibi Netanyahu that President Trump enjoyed, and incapable of making any real impact on forcing the Israelis into a ceasefire.  As a gauge of just how unusual was the segment, when's the last time CNN compared Biden unfavorably to Trump in any regard?

Sounds like a threat.
Biden's COVID warning:  Unvaccinated 'will end up paying the price'.  President Biden highlighted on Monday that for the first time since the coronavirus pandemic swept the nation early last year, cases of COVID-19 "are down in all 50 states."  But in a pitch to encourage unvaccinated Americans to get their shots, the president warned that "those who are not vaccinated will end up paying the price."  And Biden, in remarks from the White House, also announced that the U.S. will share millions more doses of coronavirus vaccines with other countries around the world.  The president highlighted that "deaths are down from COVID by 81%," which he said was "their lowest level since April of 2020."

Joe Biden is proving even more of a 'master of disaster' than Jimmy Carter.  President Joe Biden entered office poised to oversee a record recovery and a return to the booming economy and all-round stability of pre-pandemic life.  Instead, he's turned out to be a master of disaster, with self-inflicted crises across the board threatening to set America back to the 1970s — with that era's infamous "stagflation" as well as a foreign policy in flames. [...] You can thank Biden's focus on expanding government at the expense of everyone else.  Democrats (alone) passed his $1.9 trillion COVID "relief" bill — which had little to do with either — in March, as things were finally picking up.  Throwing money into the economy without much consideration of its necessity directly led to the inflation we're seeing now, with the money supply up by 25 percent over last year.  That "relief" bill also extended the $300 weekly federal unemployment supplement to Sept. 6, meaning nearly half of people getting checks make more by staying home than going back to work.  Employers coast to coast have cited it as a reason they're having trouble hiring.

NY Times:  Slow Joe Getting Slower.  The New York Times has a remarkable story out this weekend that offers its typical "behind the scenes" construction of how the White House operates — in this case, under President Biden.  While the story tries to soften the blows with lots of fluff and filler, it paints a devastating picture of Biden for the careful reader.  It explains he has a quick temper, takes a long time to make decisions, and needs to be heavily propped up by staff to function.  It reminds us that Biden is indeed a creature of the Senate, where he mostly attended hearings, made speeches, fiddled with legislation, and seldom made any decisions that suggested executive skill (Quick — can anyone name a major piece of Biden legislation?  The crime bill of 1994?  Likely written mostly by the Clinton Justice Department.  The bankruptcy reform bill of 2007?  Likely written largely by Delaware-based banks.  You get the picture.)

Who's really in charge in America?  Nearly six months into the Biden-Harris administration, ordinary Americans are increasingly wondering who is really running the country.  Joe Biden is ostensibly the president, yet he continues to show signs of cognitive impairment — despite the controlled media insistence that all is well and there is nothing to see here. [...] After a number of high-profile gaffes, the White House press office recently conceded that Biden's handlers don't want him answering unscripted questions from the media.  Yet now the issue of presidential authority has taken a more ominous turn.  On May 11, a group of 124 retired U.S. military admirals and generals signed a letter questioning Biden's fitness for office and seemingly challenging the outcome of the 2020 presidential election.  "Recent Democrat leadership's inquiries about nuclear code procedures sends a dangerous national security signal to nuclear armed adversaries, raising the question about who is in charge," the letter said.  "We must always have an unquestionable chain of command."

You will never believe what Jen Psaki called Joe Biden.  Listening to the exchange between Fox New's Peter Doocy and White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki regarding the administration's sudden announcement that masks were no longer necessary for vaccinated people, it was hard to tell what was worse:  Psaki's prevarication and condescension, or the way she referred to Biden.  Having thought about it for a little while, though, I'm pretty sure it was the name Psaki gave to Biden. [...] You may not believe this, but she referred to Biden — the gropey, creepy, demented, and not very nice Biden — as "our North star."  [Video clip]  Only in a party that is defined by a cult of personality could someone say that.

Report: Biden Snapping and Losing It in Profanity Laced Tirades at Staff.  There's a new report out from the New York Times about Joe Biden based upon talking with two dozen current and former Biden associates regarding Biden's demeanor.  The report describes Biden as having "scolded his aides in profanity-laced episodes."  The interviews paint Biden as having "a short fuse."  It also says he needs "hours of debate" and that it "takes days or weeks to make up his mind as he examines and second-guesses himself and others" before he's able to come to decisions.

Report: Biden Has Scolded His Aides In Profanity-Laced Outbursts.  President Joe Biden has reportedly scolded his aides in profanity-laced episodes and often demands hours of debate from policy experts before coming to a decision on issues, according to a report from The New York Times (NYT).  The NYT spoke with over two dozen current and former Biden associates regarding the president's demeanor and how he conducts business.  According to the report, the interviews painted a picture "of a president with a short fuse, who is obsessed with getting the details right — sometimes to a fault."

Mark Levin slams Biden for creating crises: 'He's a human pandemic'.  [Quoting Mark Levin]  Joe Biden is a human pandemic.  That's exactly what he is.  From the border, to the currency, to inflation, the price of food the price of gasoline, the price of toys and plastics and steel — go right down the list.  He has opened a Pandora's Box to inflation and that is a tough box to shut.  But, the Democrats are used to these sort of things since they create inflation, and recession, and depressions all the time, taking our money and money that doesn't even exist and throwing it all over the place to give money to its base as they follow this Marxist ideology of class warfare an oppression oppressor.  Joe Biden is the greatest president — not for our allies but for our enemies.

The Beasts Smell Blood.  China and Russia are aggressively raising their stakes against Taiwan and Ukraine.  Why?  Just take a sober view of Biden's America, at war with itself.  China and Russia came to a pragmatic conclusion:  America in 2021 has neither the desire nor the courage nor the political will to protect itself and its allies.  It was under Biden that the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline work continued.  It was under Biden that the preparations for the seizure of Taiwan by China entered the final phase.  Under Biden, China's seizure of the South China Sea, suspended by Trump, is close to completion.  Under Biden, both Russia and China decided on something that was simply unthinkable under Trump — they forced preparations for open aggression against neighbors. [...] Beijing and Moscow are well aware that Biden is a temporary, accidental person in the White House, and it is necessary to strike while the iron is hot.  Under Biden, Beijing's and Moscow's expansionist plans are destined to come true.

Joe Biden Unveils His Big Distraction.  As RedState has chronicled, the last week has been an absolute disaster for the Joe Biden Administration.  It started with a disastrous jobs report which fell 700,000 below expectations.  Then there was the report on inflation which showed a 4.2% rise in April alone, crushing the savings and buying power of normal Americans.  Meanwhile, war has broken out between Israel and Palestinian terrorists at a level that hasn't been seen since the year 2000.  But if that weren't enough, we also had a ransomware attack on a major pipeline that caused days of gas shortages.  Yeah, it hasn't been a good week.  That meant that a distraction was needed.  Enter today's CDC guidance changes. [...] Joe Biden and the Democrats sense the coming backlash.  They are watching an economy that was on cruise control burn to the ground as inflation swallows any gains people have made.  The Middle East is descending into a new round of chaos after a relative peace had settled under Donald Trump.  Gas prices have shot up over 50% since Biden took office.  People are hurting, and the pain is getting worse.

Biden to reporters: 'I'm not supposed to be answering all these questions.  I'm supposed to leave'.  During a White House briefing on Wednesday [5/12/2021], President Joe Biden said something that made it sound as if he was a little child who was supposed to just deliver his speech and then go take a seat at his desk with the rest of the kids.  After the briefing concluded, he started walking away from the podium but was peppered with questions.  This prompted him to return to the podium to answer one.  After answering the question, he tried walking away once more, but again he was prompted to return to the podium and answer yet another question.  This wasn't necessarily unusual behavior, though former President Donald Trump, known for his transparency, likely wouldn't have tried walking away, period, as he almost always stuck around and answered questions.  But once Biden had answered the second question, he tried again to step away but was drawn back to the podium once more, at which point he said something bizarre.

The No Confidence Administration.  We now are experiencing the consequences of the Biden regime mishandling everything it touches and creating new problems by implementing policies derived from a brain trust of nincompoops, communists, and crackpots.  Does anyone have a clue what the Biden administration will do when our ally Taiwan is attacked by the communist Chinese?  Perhaps it will do what it did when our ally Israel was bombarded with hundreds of Palestinian rockets by terrorists financed and armed by Iran — that is to say, nothing.  Maybe it will do the same as it did when Russians hacked the Colonial Pipeline, resulting in immediate gasoline shortages and automobiles queued up in long lines reminiscent of the last "nice guy" to be president, Jimmy Carter.  That is to say, maybe nothing.  Again.  Indeed, even as the gasoline lines stretched out in southern States, the administration denied there was a shortage.

Sounding a Bit Like a Dictator There, Joe Biden.  The CDC has finally basically admitted that if you're vaccinated, you don't need to be wearing a mask.  [Tweet]  Now this has seemed fairly logical for awhile to anyone who understands science.  But apparently not to the Biden team, who kept wearing masks despite everyone being vaccinated.  [Tweet]  As we reported earlier today, CNN asked White House adviser Andy Slavitt why they kept doing this, seemingly sending mixed signals to the American people?  Slavitt's response?  Biden is a "very important man."  Alrighty now.  So because he's so "important,' he'll just keep doing something that makes no sense?  What kind of sense does that make?  But despite not being clear in his own actions, Biden was out trying to spread the vaccination message again today, but sounding pretty dictatorial in the process.  [Tweet]

Tucker Carlson Torches Biden's Mask 'Ultimatum'.  President Joe Biden's declaration Thursday that the unvaccinated would have to continue wearing masks didn't sit well with Fox News host Tucker Carlson, who made it abundantly clear that such an "ultimatum" was not "within his powers to demand."  Biden, responding to the Centers for Disease Control's announcement Thursday that vaccinated individuals would no longer need to mask up even in indoor settings, tweeted what he considered a "simple" choice for Americans.  "The rule is now simple:  get vaccinated or wear a mask until you do," Biden (or whoever handles his social media account) wrote.  "The choice is yours."

Inflation Is the Issue That Will Topple the Democrats.  A 10% surge in used car prices pushed the "core" US Consumer Price Index (CPI) up by 0.9% in April — an annualized rate of increase of more than 11% — in the highest inflation print since the Great Financial Crisis of 2008.  There's worse to come, as higher housing costs feed into consumer prices.  The consensus forecast called for an increase in the "core" rate (excluding food and energy) of just 0.3%.  We have been warning for weeks that visible price increases for homes, cars, and other items would produce an inflation surge.  This one lands on Biden's lap.  Republicans, take note.

Retired Generals and Admirals Pen Letter Questioning Joe Biden's Mental Health.  What goes around comes around, I suppose.  After four years of the media fluffing letters from "former officials" and the like insisting that Donald Trump should be impeached, be charged with crimes, and not eat chocolate ice cream, the tables have turned just a bit.  A group of 124 retired generals and admirals have penned a letter questioning Joe Biden's mental fitness and urging the government to take election integrity seriously.  You'll have to excuse The Hill's framing in the excerpt below.  They aren't nearly as accepting of this act of "civic duty" as they were when the target was Trump.

From inflation to jobs to the border, Biden is flailing — when will the media notice?  If the media could take a break from obsessing over the House Republicans choosing a new conference chair, they might have noticed that Joe Biden's presidency is falling apart.  On every major front, Biden is flailing — even by the depressingly low bar set for him by the Washington press corps.  April just saw the highest rate of inflation in 13 years, according to the Department of Labor.  Prices for everything, including food and gasoline, immediately skyrocketed after Biden's $2 trillion welfare scheme (sometimes referred to as a "stimulus package") went into effect and flooded the economy with more money than anyone knows what to do with.  Biden's preoccupation?  Spending even more.

Joe Biden Proposes More Education Spending to Solve Gas Shortage.  President Joe Biden proposed more federal spending on education Wednesday [5/12/2021] when asked how to end the gas shortage on the East coast.  "I think that this shows that I think we have to make a greater investment in education as it relates to being able to train and graduate more people proficient in cybersecurity," Biden said when asked how to alleviate the crisis.  The president spoke about the gas shortage — sparked by a ransomware attack on the Colonial Pipeline — after delivering remarks about fighting the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.  "I think that one of the most important things we have to do to reclaim our place as the leading innovator in the world is to have a better-educated workforce," Biden said, admitting his answer was not a "direct response" to the question.

More than 120 retired generals and admirals sign open letter questioning Biden's mental health and backing election fraud claims.  A group of more than 120 retired military officers have written President Joe Biden to tell him his election was less than legitimate — while questioning his mental acuity.  The letter echoes former President Donald Trump's claims of widespread election fraud — which have not been borne out in the courts — and comes on a day when Rep. Liz Cheney ripped Trump for his claim that the election was 'stolen.'  'Without fair and honest elections that accurately reflect the 'will of the people' our Constitutional Republic is lost,' the letter from retired officers says.

Joe Biden Is Turning Out To Be A Jimmy Carter Reboot.  The parallels are striking.  What characterized Carter's one-term presidency?  Disasters at home and abroad.  At home, the country suffered a self-inflicted energy crisis, with gas shortages and long lines.  Inflation surged even as unemployment climbed, making the "Misery Index" a household term.  Abroad, America's adversaries sensed Carter's weakness as commander in chief and the world was thrown in chaos — from the Iranian Revolution to the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan.  Carter's response to these disasters was to tell people to turn down their thermostats.  He blamed Americans for what he called a "crisis of confidence."  What's happened after just over three months with Biden in the White House?

Biden's claim of support from five former Fed chairs for tax plan [is] erroneous.  President Biden was either confused or misleading the public when he claimed that the past five former chairs of the Federal Reserve support his tax hike plan as a way to boost the economy.  The president caused a lot of head-scratching when he told reporters last week, "By the way, you saw — you know, the last five leaders of the Fed coming out and saying — what'd they say?  They said, 'Biden's plan is going to grow the economy.'"  What did they say, indeed?  For starters, two of the previous five Fed chairmen — Paul Volcker and G. William Miller — have died.  Of the others, only Janet Yellen is advocating publicly for the president's proposed tax increases, and she happens to be Mr. Biden's Treasury secretary.  The White House didn't respond to a request for clarification.

What a polite way to put it!
Sky News:  The Leader of the Free World is "Cognitively Delinquent".  Sky News Australia host Alan Jones absolutely trashed Dementia Joe Biden on his show recently, calling Biden "cognitively delinquent" and calling for his resignation.  "This bloke is without shame," Jones said.  "He hailed the Covid-19 vaccines distributed across the United States as a 'dose of hope'.  That hope, Mr. Biden, was launched on Trump's watch.  Trump ordered millions of vaccines before anyone thought of it."

What Hasn't The Media Told Us About Joe Biden?  Going into Biden's presidency, we suspected the media would treat Biden with kid gloves, and we haven't been disappointed.  Some of the omissions by the media have been on less critical matters, but there is one particularly egregious example which is just remarkable.  Biden stated when he came into office that there was no vaccine "distribution plan to speak of," and Vice-President Harris claimed that the administration was essentially "starting from scratch" with COVID vaccines.  Both are barefaced lies.  The Washington Post gave Harris' claim "two Pinocchios" on a four-scale, but it should have been given 4+.  Meanwhile, the rest of the media are just ignoring the nonsense.  When the Biden Admin took office, we were vaccinating approximately one million Americans per day, and predictably that number had been trending upwards since late-December when vaccinations began.

We Don't Have a President.  As I type this, an all-out war on the streets of Israel has broken out.  The Mayor of Lod is comparing what's happening to Kristallnacht, the night Nazis smashed Jewish businesses and destroyed synagogues in the lead up to the Holocaust. [...] Meanwhile, on this side of the ocean, a cyberattack has taken down a major pipeline that supplies gasoline to the East Coast.  That has led to gas shortages, even further exacerbating the skyrocketing energy costs Americans are already enduring.  Couple those two events with the recent, floundering economic news, the ever-growing crisis at the border (we reached a two-decade high in apprehensions last month), and a COVID vaccine distribution program that's cratering due to the Johnson and Johnson pause, and you've got one of the most chaotic weeks in years on tap for the country.  So where exactly is Joe Biden, the man who is ostensibly the President of the United States?  No one can seem to figure that out.

Biden: New Deal or Just Big Deal?  [Scroll down]  If there is a more apt, if surely imperfect comparison (at least in motivations) to be made between Joe Biden and some past president, it's probably Lyndon Baines Johnson. [...] Johnson desperately needed to prove to himself and the world that a crude, profane Texas deal-maker who rose from squalor could enact more landmark progressive legislation than the suave, handsome, rich-from-birth son of a former ambassador to Great Britain, whom Johnson succeeded only by virtue of an assassin's bullet.  Similarly Biden, who attained the presidency at a far more advanced age than Johnson, more than anything else wishes to make a mark on history as his very own "big [...] deal"; as consequential a president as Obama, and it doesn't seem to matter to him just how he gets there.  But in life, Kennedy and his coterie of "whiz kids," sophisticates and Boston brawlers took no great pains to hide their contempt for LBJ.  So too, Biden is dogged by the bitter knowledge that his former chief and those around him treated him with a quiet, but still unmistakable disdain.

'Things Fall Apart' With No End in Sight.  Joe Biden, the phantom president, gave a speech recently that the world immediately little noted nor long remembered.  For the doddering, barely ambulatory, linguistically challenged Biden, his first address to Congress was intended as a substitute State of the Union speech, but like everything else he does, it fell as flat as he nearly did when scrambling up the steps of Air Force One back in March.  So let me help our poor president out:  the state of the union is terrible, and getting worse.  Examples abound: [...]

Biden is the New Carter, and we Now Have the Gas Lines to Prove it.  Candidate Biden tried to do a song and dance about ending energy production in the United States, but no one wanted to believe that he actually would.  After President Biden's Day One executive order killing the Keystone XL Pipeline, then others that put a moratorium on fracking and domestic gas production, I think it's apparent that he meant what he said the first time.  It is now around Day 130 [sic - it's Day 112] of the Biden administration, and we have had the privilege horror of seeing the result of his bad policy decisions in real-time.  Gas prices have increased.  Quite a lot, in fact.  After the Colonial Pipeline ransomware attack this weekend, we are now seeing a full-on fuel shortage, to a degree we have not seen since... oh, 1978?  The end result of this is increased prices that you pay at the pump.

Biden HHS Redefines Sex as Non-Biological in New 'Anti-Discrimination' Rule Change.  The Biden administration is reversing a rule initiated by former President Donald Trump that defined "sex" as biological, in an effort to prevent "discrimination" against transgender people in health care practices, the Department of Health and Human Services announced on Monday [5/10/2021].  The notice of enforcement, while not a binding federal rule, signals that the federal government will begin interpreting Section 1557 — the non-discrimination provision of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act — to include a ban on discrimination based on sexual identity, rather than simply banning discrimination based on biological sex, as the Trump administration had.  The change will likely require that states, which set their own Medicaid eligibility requirements, provide gender-reassignment surgery and hormone therapy to Medicaid recipients.

Biden Administration Decides Sex Is Non-Biological In New HHS Announcement.  On Monday [5/10/2021], the Biden administration's Health and Human Services department, headed by Secretary Xavier Becerra, announced that the Office for Civil Rights would throw out the Trump administration's view that sex is biological and "interpret and enforce Section 1557 (of the Affordable Care Act) and Title IX's prohibitions on discrimination based on sex to include discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and discrimination on the basis of gender identity."  The Biden administration rolled back the June 2020 final regulations implementing Section 1557 of the Affordable Care Act by the Trump administration, which eliminated the general prohibition on discrimination based on gender identity and sex-stereotyping that the Obama administration had instituted.

Biden HHS Lays the Groundwork for the Chemical Castration of Children.  On Monday [5/10/2021], the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) laid the groundwork for forcing doctors and hospitals to perform transgender surgery in the name of fighting "discrimination."  HHS Secretary Xavier Becerra and Assistant Secretary of Health Rachel Levine (a biological male who identifies as a woman) announced that HHS would adopt the Orwellian redefinition of "sex" to force transgender ideology in the medical field, mainstreaming the arguable chemical castration of children.  "The Supreme Court has made clear that people have a right not to be discriminated against on the basis of sex and receive equal treatment under the law, no matter their gender identity or sexual orientation.  That's why today HHS announced it will act on related reports of discrimination," Becerra announced in a statement.

Hunter Biden Disclosures Offer New Details On His Chinese Financial Dealings And Associations.  There are new disclosures from Hunter Biden's laptop that offer an added perspective on his dealings with Chinese figures, including Patrick Ho, secretary general of Chinese oil giant CEFC, who was later indicted and has been connected with Chinese intelligence.  The emails and pictures relate to the young Chinese assistant supplied to Hunter who makes revealing statements about the fluid expense accounts and level of support given Hunter by the Chinese.  I have read through the new messages and I am not clear about the relationship with the young aide who tells him that she still has his dog tags in her New York apartment.  However, the new emails include details on how Biden was paid and the fluidity of the accounts established by the Chinese.  There is much on the Internet suggesting that the 29-year-old Chinese-American assistant, JiaQi Bao, was an effort by Chinese intelligence to create a sexual relationship that could be used to influence Hunter and ultimately his father — much like the scandal involving Rep. Eric Swalwell's intimate relationship with an alleged Chinese spy.  It is not clear that Biden had any intimate relationship with Bao.

Hunter's laptop and the Art of the Bribe.  Liz Cheney, the daddy's little girl who believes the world revolves around her, says she opposes Biden's policies but she attacks President Donald John Trump incessantly over what she calls character issues.  Baloney.  It is Biden's policies she likes because his character is unacceptable.  A new disclosure shows that Biden's character is not just flawed but damaged beyond repair.  Through his son, Hunter, Biden accepts and launders bribes from Red China.  Jonathan Turley reported, "There are new disclosures from Hunter Biden's laptop that offer an added perspective on his dealings with Chinese figures, including Patrick Ho, secretary general of Chinese oil giant CEFC, who was later indicted and has been connected with Chinese intelligence.  The emails and pictures relate to the young Chinese assistant supplied to Hunter who makes revealing statements about the fluid expense accounts and level of support given Hunter by the Chinese.

Report: Hunter Biden's Connected to 'Chief Spy of China' Through His Chinese-American Secretary.  A business partner Hunter Biden called "the chief spy of China," assigned the president's son a Chinese-American secretary who was feeding him opposition research to help Joe Biden's 2020 election bid after the business venture collapsed in 2018, the Daily Mail reported Friday [5/7/2021].  The Daily Mail obtained the information from emails contained in Hunter Biden's alleged "laptop from hell," which has become the gift that will not stop giving to critics of President Joe Biden and his troubled son.

When Fools Rule.  There is no question that the country is at odds with itself and its ruling class over a long list of issues.  The race issue remains as troublesome as it was when Lincoln gave the Gettysburg Address.  Our politics are a disaster of fraud and corruption.  These are true things, but the ruling class talks about them from a position of ignorance.  They sound so weird, because they have no idea what life is like for the rest of us.  This starts with Joe Biden, a man who has spent his adult life in government.  His "private sector experience" was at a political law firm for a year fifty years ago.  Now, of course, his brain is scrambled eggs, but even if he were still in control of his faculties, he would have no reason to question the claims about invisible Nazis hiding around the capital.  Why would he?  Everything he knows comes from government.

Biden and 'elitist environmentalists' lost at least 1,000 steel jobs in Pennsylvania.  Pennsylvania State Senate Majority Leader Kim Ward argued on "Fox & Friends" on Thursday that Scranton native Joe Biden and his administration are "partially responsible" for the cancelation of a $1.5 billion steel project, which would cost "at least 1,000 blue collar jobs" because "of their focus on only green energy."  Late last month, Pittsburgh-based United States Steel Corp. said that it is canceling the project to bring a state-of-the-art improvement to its Mon Valley Works operations in western Pennsylvania, citing the fact that the landscape has changed in the two years since the company announced its intentions.  According to the company, project permits initially stalled by the coronavirus pandemic never materialized, U.S. Steel has added capacity elsewhere and now it must shift its focus to its goal of getting rid of greenhouse gas emissions from its facilities by 2050.  [Video clip]

Do vaccinations work, or do they not?
Snarky Biden snaps at reporter who asked about mask use: 'I'm worried about you'.  As his administration continues to be criticized for sending mixed messages to Americans on face mask use, President Biden snapped at a reporter Friday who asked why he wore one to a sparsely attended indoor event. [...] The remarks were in the cavernous White House East Room.  Most, if not all, of Biden's staff and most White House journalists are vaccinated.  To access White House grounds, reporters also must test negative each morning.  Biden has struggled with messaging on masks after the CDC last week said that there's no reason for vaccinated people to wear them outdoors.  Shortly after that announcement, the president stood masked on a largely empty outdoor rally stage near Atlanta as his wife introduced him.  The first lady helped plant a tree on the White House lawn the next day while masked.

'Amtrak Joe' Biden's moving story about conductor called into question.  President Biden appeared to go off the rails with a heartfelt story about reaching 1.5 million miles on Amtrak and being personally congratulated by a conductor — after it emerged the Amtrak worker actually retired some 20 years before his story took place.  Speaking at an event in Philadelphia commemorating the 50th anniversary of Amtrak Friday [4/30/2021], Biden — an avid rail user who earned the name "Amtrak Joe" as a senator — launched into a touching tale about hitting the milestone in his "fourth or fifth year as vice president" as he traveled home. [...] However, Biden's emotive story doesn't quite add up, with skeptics quickly poking holes in the commander-in-chief's long-winded account.  Fox News noted that he entered the fourth year of his vice presidency around 2013 — 20 years after Negri's obit said he had retired from Amtrak in 1993, when Biden would have been in the Senate.  Meanwhile, the president's mother, Catherine Eugenia Finnegan, died in 2010 — years before his story allegedly took place.

'I'm not a deficit spender,' Biden says.  In a pitch to Louisiana voters, President Joe Biden touted tax hikes on corporations and wealthy people, measures he said were necessary to pay for his sweeping infrastructure package.  "I'm not a deficit spender," Biden said in Lake Charles, standing before a 70-year-old bridge that former President Donald Trump had promised to rebuild two years ago were he to win a second term.  It was Biden's latest stop on a nationwide tour to build support for his nearly $2.3 trillion "American Jobs Plan," where he was joined by Lake Charles Mayor Nic Hunter, a Republican.

Biden's proclamation of National Day of Prayer omits the word 'God'.  When the Biden presidency does something odd, it is impossible to read the event the same way the actions of previous presidents could be examined.  We never know if a doddering mediocrity has once again misspoken, or if some nameless handler is implementing a plan that is part of the transformation of America being foisted upon us with a bare majority in Congress.  At least we know that yesterday's official Proclamation on National Day Of Prayer was not a Biden verbal gaffe of the sort we are already well accustomed to.  In its 470 words, not once did the word "God" appear, something that might be somewhat understandable in a spontaneous speech.  The Proclamation was a document that was drafted by some staffer, even though it is signed at the bottom "Joseph R. Biden."  (Not only is that normal for presidents, but Biden has a long history of claiming others' words as his own.)

The Editor says...
[#1] It's business as usual at the White House:  Somebody else writes up a proclamation, and Joe Biden — without any idea what it says — happily signs it.  [#2] Wait, what happened to "Joe Biden is a devout Catholic" — which used to be the White House motto?

Biden's proclamation declaring National Day of Prayer omits the word 'God' — prompting Franklin Graham to say 'there's no one else to pray to'.  President Joe Biden's proclamation of the annual National Day of Prayer failed to include the word 'God', an omission that is drawing criticism from some religious leaders.  Biden, a devout Catholic, typically ends his public remarks with the phrase 'May God bless you all, and God protect our troops' — but his proclamation for Thursday's Day of Prayer contained no such acknowledgement of a higher power.  'Prayer has nourished countless souls and powered moral movements — including essential fights against racial injustice, child labor, and infringement on the rights of disabled Americans,' the proclamation read in part.

The Internet Has Spotted a 'Lump' on Biden's Head — Now People Think They Know What It Is.  President Joe Biden delivered yet another bizarre speech to the American people, filled with gaffes and odd statements on Wednesday.  It was so bad that people are now wondering what is wrong with Biden's head.  Literally.  The founder of Grabien, a video aggregation service used by a number of online news sites, pointed out what appears to be a lump on Biden's head.

Joe Biden Mumbles About His "Infrastructure" Bill, Bizarrely Claims His $3 Trillion in Tax Hikes "Doesn't Cost Anybody Anything".  Joe Biden on Thursday [5/6/2021] stumbled through remarks on the American Jobs Plan while visiting Lake Charles, Louisiana.  Biden is completely clueless and he struggled to read through his notes (as usual).  Joe Biden falsely claimed his "infrastructure" bill that has virtually nothing to do with infrastructure will create 16 million jobs.  Biden also absurdly claimed that his $3 trillion in tax hikes "doesn't cost anybody anything."

Biden's Amtrak story about hitting 1.5 million miles unravels.  President Joe Biden's strange anecdote about reaching 1.5 million miles on Amtrak has come under scrutiny after key inconsistencies emerged that make it impossible to have occurred as he told it.  On Friday [4/30/2021], delivering a speech in Philadelphia commemorating the 50th anniversary of Amtrak, Biden launched into the tale of a certain conductor congratulating him on reaching the milestone as he traveled to visit his sick mother.  Biden said the incident occurred in his 'fourth or fifth year as vice president', or around 2014-2015, at which time the conductor he named had been retired for 20 years and his mother had passed away, inconsistencies first pointed out by Fox News.

It Got Serious In A Hurry.  Joe Biden aspired to mediocrity in his prime and it's been downhill ever since.  As for Kamala Harris:  some are born hacks, some achieve hackness, and some have hackness thrust upon them.  She's all three.  They and their string-pullers have taken things from fun to serious — deadly serious — in a little over two months.

The Bleak Biden Way.  Biden frowns.  He grimaces.  He occasionally barks and yells as he delivers a gloomy view of America and its people, past and present.  Admit it:  We are all racists, then and now, captives of Jim Crow still.  Biden needs as many fabricated enemies as he can find; otherwise, his speeches, his demeanor, his agenda are little more than absurdities.  They cannot stand or fall on their own merits because they have none.  So grumpy Biden, in his latest and final incarnation, is always anti-something, usually anti-Trump, anti-racism, and anti-everything traditional America is for.  Lots of bad white people still need to be rooted out — outside of the beltway.  These are the ones never woken by Wall Street, Silicon Valley, the media, academia, the corporate boardroom, professional sports, and the foundations.  These retrograde deplorables apparently won't give up their "privilege" without a fight.

Biden Visits Elementary School in Virginia, Asks the Children if They're High Schoolers.  Joe Biden and Jill Biden visited an elementary school in Yorktown, Virginia on Monday — and it went about as well as one might expect.  Biden walked into a classroom full of masked children sitting at desks behind massive plastic partitions.  The sight alone of children being fully masked and behind these jail-like plexiglass barriers is enough to enrage most Americans.  But then Biden made matter worse when he asked the clearly young children if they were teenagers in high school.

One hand washes the other:
Biden salutes journalists:  They 'uncover truth, check abuse of power, and demand transparency.'.  President Joe Biden offered admiration and praise for the American media in a statement Monday [5/3/2021] recognizing World Press Freedom Day just a few days after major outlets published false information pertaining to the Justice Department's investigation of former Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani.  "Journalists uncover the truth, check the abuse of power, and demand transparency from those in power.  They are indispensable to the functioning of democracy.  Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, journalists and media workers have been on the front lines to keep the public informed, at significant risk to their own health," said Biden.  "And, at a time when the truth is increasingly under attack, our need for accurate, fact-based reporting, open public conversation, and accountability has never been greater.["]

When Can We Expect That Apology From 'Biden Republicans'?  In the run-up to the 2020 elections, we were bombarded with stories about Republicans who were not only opposed to Donald Trump's reelection but were actively campaigning on behalf of Joe Biden.  These Republicans didn't just express disdain for Trump, they sang Biden's praises, calling him a uniter, a reasonable centrist, an honest man, someone who'd reach across the aisle "to get things done."  Now, after Biden's first 100 days in office, we can see how well those promises have held up.  Our judgment in three words:  Not.  At.  All.  Biden is governing as the most leftist president in history.  He has shunned Republicans at every turn.  He's attacked the U.S. as racist.  He's been caught in flagrant lies.  And so on.  So let's see what exactly those "Republicans for Biden" were promising that a vote or Biden would produce.

Only 36% Say Biden's First 100 Days in Office Were a 'Success'.  Joe Biden has been in office for just over 100 days and a new poll reveals that just about no one is very happy with his job performance.  According to Rasmussen Reports, only 36 percent of Americans say Biden's first 100 days in office were a "success." [...] Biden's handling of the border crisis is one major aspect of why his approval ratings are so low.  According to a recent CNN poll, a majority of Americans think there is a "crisis" at the U.S.-Mexico border and do not approve of how Biden is handling it.

A weird photograph perfectly encapsulates the Biden administration.  There's a photo rocketing around the internet that, once seen, cannot be unseen.  It shows Joe and Jill Biden posing with the nonagenarian Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter.  However, it appears that the Carters having become Lilliputians, for they are teeny people in a teeny house next to the giant Bidens.  Also, Biden's invariable mask is missing, despite the Carters' advanced age.  The whole thing is bizarre and almost certainly deliberately intended to make Biden seem important. [...] First, did you notice that Jill and Joe, who are in close proximity to people in their 90s, are not wearing masks?  Joe wears his mask everywhere, all the time.  Even though he's been vaccinated, he considers it his patriotic duty to wear it outdoors, in that bright disinfecting sunlight, and when he, who has been vaccinated, is in the presence of other vaccinated people.  Yet here he and his wife are, unmasked, with two of the most vulnerable people in America.

Joe Biden searches desperately for someone he can overshadow.
The Bidens Visit The Carters and Take a Really Weird Photo.  The White House purposefully found the one couple that could make frail and feeble Biden appear healthy?  Or is this unmasked giants meeting with frail mini-people?  Whatever the reason, Joe Biden is following the Jimmy Carter economic model for inflation; so perhaps they were talking about the best way to do the exact wrong thing for the U.S. economy.

Jimmy Carter, 96, and wife Rosalynn, release picture from last week's meeting with maskless Joe and Jill Biden - leaving social media baffled at its Very odd perspective.  Former President Jimmy Carter and his wife Rosalynn have released a picture from their meeting this week with President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden — but it left social media users baffled by its odd perspective.  The photo saw both Bidens appearing to loom large over the Carters who were pictured on sitting on two living room chairs.  All four were pictured without face masks — despite Joe Biden insisting that he wears a mask while outdoors even though he has been vaccinated against COVID-19.

Who Gets To Define What's Patriotic?  ast week, President Joe Biden said it's the patriotic duty of Americans to wear masks while outside.  Years ago, while campaigning as Barack Obama's running mate, he said it was patriotic to pay higher taxes.  It's hard to decide if these statements are more akin to the ramblings of a child or are uncomfortably similar to Third World despots who demand obedience from their subordinated citizens.  Frankly, they're both.  Making a distinction is virtually impossible.

Biden Is Using Lies To Divide America.  The current President's record of lying is alarming.  In 1998, Biden lost his first bid for the Presidency because the media actually reported he was a repeat plagiarist.  He became president this time around at least in part because, in 2020, the mainstream media did not report his record of plagiarism.  The Democrats of today also either chose to ignore his history or did not research their candidate, instead accepting the left-leaning media's narrative at face value. [...] As President, a couple of weeks ago Biden made a statement about Georgia's election law[,] in which every allegation is untrue.  The new law does not end voting hours early, end early voting, place restrictions on casting absentee ballots that deny "countless voters" the right to vote, reduce the number of polling sites, or criminalize providing water to voters waiting in line.  I believe in redemption, but Biden's behavior as a candidate and as president has not indicated he is anything but a bald-faced liar.

Biden frantic after forgetting he put mask in his pocket.  President Biden spent 30 seconds frantically looking for a mask he left in his pocket before his outdoor rally in Georgia this week — saying he'd be "in trouble" without it — despite being fully vaccinated.  Footage from Thursday's drive-in event in Duluth — which marked his 100th day in office — showed the commander-in-chief immediately hunting for his missing mask after arriving at his podium.  "I can't find my mask!" he could be heard saying, initially drowned out by the loud welcome music of Jackie Wilson's "(Your Love Keeps Lifting Me) Higher and Higher."  First lady Jill Biden joined him in his desperate search as he repeated his plea, taking the same folder to flick through and also bending down to look on the floor.

The Never-ending Hunt for a Trump Crime.  President Biden's son, Hunter, had a lucrative position with a Ukrainian energy company, Burisma, and it raised suspicions that this created a conflict of interest respecting U.S. policy toward Ukraine.  Suspicions about improper influence upon the Bidens by certain Ukrainian officials were heightened when Joe Biden publicly bragged that he was effective when he threatened to cut off aid to Ukraine unless the prosecutor investigating Burisma was fired.  Although the FBI received Hunter's laptop with relevant evidence, to my knowledge the FBI declined to examine it.  In the course of his representation of Donald Trump, Rudy Giuliani traveled to Ukraine in December 2019, accompanied by a team from One America News.  OAN produced a documentary of the trip in which it publicized the relationship between Hunter and Burisma and Joe Biden's publicly admitted action to cover this up by getting the prosecutor fired.  The first account I read was in the Washington Post, where Ellen Nakashima, Shane Harris, and Tom Hamburger clearly megaphoned the FBI story in an account which suggests we are seeing the phony baloney Russian Collusion tale being repeated with the same sort of willing collusion by the press, a role long played by Nakashima.

100 Days Into Biden's Presidency, Hunter Still Owns Stake In Chinese Private Equity Firm, Business Records Show.  Hunter Biden continues to hold a minority stake in a Chinese private equity firm 100 days into President Joe Biden's term, business records show.  Hunter Biden holds a 10% equity stake in BHR Partners through his company, Skaneateles LLC, according to Qixinbao and Baidu, two independent services that provide business records on Chinese corporations based on China's National Credit Information Publicity System.  Joe Biden promised in October 2019 that if elected president, nobody in his family would have any business relationship with any foreign corporation or country.  "No one in my family will have an office in the White House, will sit in on meetings as if they are a cabinet member, will, in fact, have any business relationship with anyone that relates to a foreign corporation or a foreign country," Joe Biden told reporters in Iowa.  "Period.  Period.  End of story."

Who's really running Biden's White House?  Step forward President Klain.  The name's Klain — President Klain.  Washington insiders delight in assigning the White House chief of staff this mischievous title as the driving force behind the actual president, Joe Biden.  The man himself, Ron Klain, would never describe himself this way, but his firm grip on the levers of government has enabled the 78-year-old president to cruise through his first 100 days in office without breaking sweat.  Everybody who is anybody in Washington knows Klain, although few people outside the Beltway — the ring road surrounding the capital — have heard of him.  He is a powerful, confident operator who knows the business of government inside out.

Rejoice! Biden Says No One Making Under $400,000 Will 'Pay a Penny in Taxes'.  President Joe Biden on Monday delivered truly unbelievable news for U.S. taxpayers:  No one making under $400,000 will "pay a penny" in taxes.  [Video clip]  Of course, this would totally revolutionize America's entire tax code.  The $400,000 threshold would eliminate over 95% of all income earners from paying taxes.  The Tax Foundation in 2021 released an analysis for the latest published IRS figures from 2018.  It showed that the bottom 95% of income earners pay approximately 40% of the taxes.  It will be quite the accomplishment to see Biden pull off balancing a budget while making the most aggressive tax cuts in U.S. history.  That is, of course, unless Biden simply forgot what taxes were, who pays them, or even what's in "his" tax plan.

Joe Biden, after 100 days, finally talks truth — cutting US carbon emissions won't matter.  President Joe Biden, contrary to expectations, said something consequential in his first address to members of Congress... by mistake.  It was a whopper that went unnoticed on Wednesday night; with just a few ill-chosen words Biden utterly toppled any justification for the Green New Deal, which plays a central role in his $2.3 trillion American Jobs Plan and which, without a doubt, puts our economy at risk.  This is what he said, according to a New York Times transcript of the president's remarks:  "The United States accounts, as all of you know, for less than 15 percent of carbon emissions.  The rest of the world accounts for 85 percent.  That's why I kept my commitment to rejoin the Paris Accord, because if we do everything perfectly, it's not going to matter."  That was not in the version of the speech the White House handed out ahead of time.

Amtrak Joe pushes billions in train investment including a 'party' route from LA to Vegas.  President Joe Biden took planes, automobiles — but not trains — to Philadelphia to mark Amtrak's 50th anniversary on Friday [4/30/2021].  The president, who earned the nickname 'Amtrak Joe' during his Senate career, stood in front of a new Acela train outside of 30th Street Station and gushed about his 'family' of train workers while warning cuts to the service 'would be a disaster for our environment and our economy.'  'I want to tell you these guys, women they work like the devil.  They really, really, really do.  And Amtrak wasn't just a way of getting home, it provided me — and I'm not joking — an entire other family,' Biden said at a speech attended by real members of his family, his granddaughters Finnegan and Maisy.

Again at home in Delaware, Biden's weekends are mostly a mystery.  President Joe Biden is again spending the weekend in Delaware, but just how he spends his days of leisure are shrouded in mystery.  The White House has so far released very little information about what he does on Saturdays and Sundays, providing the public with scant details about whom he spends time or speaks to.  When he arrived at his Wilmington residence Friday afternoon, it marked his seventh trip home as president as the country returns to some semblance of normal amid the coronavirus pandemic and a day after he cleared his 100th in office.

Biden keeps masking despite updated guidance.  President Biden sought to send the message this week that the nation is in a new phase of the pandemic when he strode away from a podium outside the White House without a mask after announcing guidance that the vaccinated no longer need face coverings when outdoors.  But days later, Biden was spotted with a mask while walking outside to Marine One with first lady Jill Biden, even though both have been vaccinated and no others were around.  The president again donned a mask at a Georgia drive-in rally while his wife spoke a few feet away, despite nobody else being on stage.

DOJ Targets Journalist Investigating Biden Family Ukraine Scandals.  As part of an investigation into former President Donald Trump's personal attorney Rudy Giuliani, the Biden Justice Department is seizing communications between the former mayor and a journalist investigating President Joe Biden's business dealings with Ukraine.  Agents from the Manhattan U.S. attorney's office and the FBI raided the New York residence of Giuliani early Wednesday morning.  The investigation stems from at least a two-year-old probe into potential crimes of federal lobbying laws.  Federal investigators seized Giuliani's electronic devices.  The warrant presented, however, according to Giuliani's lawyer, Robert Costello, raises questions surrounding the scope and motivation behind the investigation, where prosecutors began issuing subpoenas around the same time of Trump's first impeachment inquiry launched by Democrats centered on conduct in Ukraine in 2019.

Biden Tells Awkward Story About Amtrak Conductor Who Grabbed His Cheeks.  Joe "Amtrak" Biden made an appearance yesterday [4/30/2021] to push his infrastructure bill and to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Amtrak.  Biden rambled on in different directions during his speech, but then he broke out one of his tall tales.  He just can't help himself with the awkward stories.  First, it was Corn Pop and kids rubbing his leg hair in the community pool, and now it's a story about the Amtrak conductor who grabbed his cheeks and said, "Joe Baby!"

Biden plugs jobs plan at Amtrak anniversary event:  They 'became my family'.  President Biden on Friday plugged his $2.3 trillion infrastructure plan at an event commemorating the 50th anniversary of Amtrak, a company near and dear to the longtime rail commuter.  "I've been riding Amtrak almost as long as there's been an Amtrak," said Mr. Biden, who famously commuted from Delaware to Washington, D.C., via rail when he was a U.S. senator.  "Amtrak became my family."  He was speaking from a station in Philadelphia, Pa., where he says he ended up a handful of times after falling asleep.

We Told You So — The First 100 Days of Biden's Radical Presidency.  President Joe Biden is not as radical as conservatives said he would be.  He is much, much worse.  The man who was sold to Americans as a "moderate" by First Lady Dr. Jill Biden, and who told voters, "I beat the socialist," has been the most radical president in U.S. history.  Biden has proposed a staggering $6 trillion in spending, most of it unpaid for, and most of it on big government programs.  He has also proposed massive tax hikes, in the midst of what he claims is a historic economic crisis.  House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) has called Biden's first 100 days in office a "bait and switch," and he's not wrong.

Who is Joe Biden worried about being 'in trouble' with?  The speech President Biden gave to a couple hundred solons acting as a "joint session of Congress" apparently sapped his energy enough to cause some embarrassing moments for the man playing the part of Leader of the Free World...for the next two days.  Commemorating the fiftieth anniversary of Amtrak yesterday, he lapsed into an incoherent word salad, unable to complete a sentence or stay on the same topic.  A jumble of thoughts, none of them complete, but all vaguely related to trains:  [Video clip]  That's sad, and if he were not occupying the White House, it would be uncharitable to mock him for his mental infirmity.  And his physical infirmity, as well:  [Video clip]  But Joe Biden was plucked from the pack of Democrat presidential contenders and pushed into the nomination and then into an Electoral College majority through the actions of people whose names we don't really know.  Criticizing the front man is just a substitute for criticizing the puppet masters.  And now he acts as commander in chief on behalf of those people, spouting the rhetoric of compromise and centrism but carrying out radical policies aimed at establishing a one-party state.

Biden from the Beginning:  Right from the start, the Delaware Democrat was all about power and money.  White House resident Joe Biden was first elected to the U.S. Senate in 1972, at the age of 29. [...] Jump ahead to 2021 and the First Amendment is under attack as Joe Biden seems determined to take away the Second Amendment rights of every American.  In the White House, Victor Davis Hanson notes, Biden is "as he always was," as incompetent as Jimmy Carter, as corrupt as Bill Clinton and "a greater racial divider than Barack Obama."

Biden goes hard left in his first 100 days; GOP has been unable to block agenda.  About the only stumble in President Biden's aggressive move toward the left during his first 100 days was when he tripped over his own feet climbing the stairs to Air Force One.  A $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief package, the first major test of Mr. Biden's domestic agenda, passed Congress without a single Republican vote.  Democrats can ram through Mr. Biden's two-phase infrastructure and social safety net plan, costing another $4.1 trillion, with the same narrow partisan majority.  All but two of Mr. Biden's highly diverse Cabinet nominees have made it through the 50-50 Senate.  The exceptions are Neera Tanden, who mean-tweeted too many senators before her nomination to head the Office of Management and Budget, and Eric Lander, whose nomination to become the president's top science adviser has stalled amid scrutiny of his meetings with Jeffrey Epstein, the notorious sex trafficker who died in prison.

Confused Elderly Dictator Delivers Rambling Speech Demanding Money.  Sometimes the pills work and sometimes they don't.  They really didn't work this time around.  The same identity politics theatrics were there as at the Oscars.  And just as at the Oscars, the man of the hour turned out to be an elderly man who wasn't there.  Except Anthony Hopkins wasn't there physically.  Joe Biden wasn't there mentally.  Instead, Americans got something closer to Biden unfiltered, squinting in bafflement, turning his head from side to side like a wind-up doll, and delivering a long tedious series of demands for money, empty promises, and even more hollow talking points.  The set was empty.  And so many empty seats only highlighted the utter emptiness of this administration.  The demands for money have gone from the billions to the trillions.  The promises are even more ridiculous and astronomical.  But the figure at the center of it could barely sell ice on a hot summer day to a man dying of thirst.

Guns, taxes, and the border:  Biden's speech [was] awash in whoppers.  Using his first address to a joint session of Congress to pitch an ambitious expansion of government, President Joe Biden made several broad misrepresentations of the issues he pledged to tackle.  The president's overall message Wednesday night involved offering his liberal agenda as the remedy for a litany of crises that he said the country faces.  But on multiple fronts, Biden painted an inaccurate picture of the problems his proposals aim to fix.

Mark Levin Shreds Biden's Radical Speech to Joint Session.  [Video clip]

No, Joe — You are Not a Nice Guy.  Despite your need to keep telling us, we know the ugly truth.  You are a pretty nasty guy.  You are pugilistic, a plagiarist, a documented racist, a race hustler, creepy with woman and children, the "Big Guy" of a crime family, and have thrown a wrecking ball into America.  Your pugilism is epic.  How many times have you garnished your weakness with the threat of taking someone behind the gym?  There is a difference between a bully and a tough guy.  The truth is you are the archetypal man of the pampered class.  If reporters dare to ask uncomfortable or "unfair" questions, you either freak, cop a few alligator tears, or hastily leave the podium.  Mostly you hide.  If you are as bright as you think you are, why do you have a history plagued by plagiarism?  Was it necessary for you to commit fraud in law school to get by?  And who can forget your plagiarizing leaders such as Neil Kinnock?  Do you realize that you were stealing his life story?  The curious are wondering what was missing in your own life story.  Adding that to your plagiarism of Hubert Humphrey and the Kennedy brothers classifies you as a first-rate charlatan.  And stop taking credit for what Trump did to make vaccines available in "Warp Speed."  It is his success, not yours.

'I'm in Trouble' — Joe Biden Loses Mask After Outdoor Campaign Speech.  President Joe Biden lost his mask during an outdoor drive-in car rally with supporters in Georgia on Thursday [4/29/2021].  Biden wore his mask up to the podium and kept it on throughout first lady Jill Biden's introductory remarks.  After hugging the first lady, the president removed his mask to deliver his remarks.  He coughed and cleared his throat throughout his speech, which lasted about 20 minutes. [...] The first lady pointed at her mask and reminded the president to put on his own mask, but he could not find it.

Biden Calls Out Senate Republicans for Lack of Gun Control Progress, Laments 'Daily Blood Shed'.  President Biden struck a subdued tone in his first address before a joint session of Congress on Wednesday, gently pushing the assembled lawmakers and viewers at home to unite behind his aggressive spending agenda.  The low-key address touted the administration's accomplishments on the coronavirus pandemic and the economy and also called on Republicans to reach across the aisle and compromise with Democrats to pass his $2.3 trillion infrastructure plan and his newly introduced $1.8 trillion "American Families Plan."  "Investments in jobs and infrastructure like the ones we're talking about have often had bipartisan support," Biden said.  "Vice President Harris and I meet regularly in the Oval Office with Democrats and Republicans to discuss the American Jobs Plan," Biden said of his $2.3 trillion proposal.

The Ratings Are In for Biden's Big Speech, Embarrassment Commences.  Joe Biden's big speech before Congress went about as well as you'd expect.  The president stumbled through his notes, making numerous verbal gaffes and seemingly getting less energetic as the night wore on.  He also managed to downplay major attacks like 9/11 and repeat various lies about things like guns and the Constitution.  Now, the ratings are in, and the embarrassment has commenced.  The original numbers were catastrophically bad, and while the latest counts are higher, they still pale in comparison to Donald Trump's numbers.

The lies of Joe Biden.  Last night, Joe Biden lied about a range of issues.  NRO identifies three of Biden's deceptions.  Phillip Klein exposes Biden's falsehood regarding health care.  Biden claimed that giving Medicare the power to negotiate lower prices for prescription drugs will "strengthen the Affordable Care Act — expand Medicare coverage and benefits — without costing taxpayers one additional penny."  Nonsense.  Klein points out that the Congressional Budget Office has twice concluded that "providing broad negotiating authority by itself would likely have a negligible effect on federal spending."  Yet, Biden claimed that the supposed savings would be enough to pay for an Obamacare expansion that would cost $200 billion, according to the White House "fact sheet" released earlier in the day.

Biden's Dishonest Sales Pitch.  President Biden's address to Congress connected only intermittently with reality.  On his telling, every good thing that has happened in America since he took office — from vaccination to job creation — is a tribute to his wisdom, rather than a continuation of a trajectory set beforehand.  All presidents say such stuff, and they all get away with it, although Senator Tim Scott made a valiant attempt to correct the record.  Worse was the dishonesty of Biden's sales pitch for his policies.  He insinuated that the ten-year ban on assault weapons had reduced the murder rate in the U.S. — something neither careful studies nor a casual look at the trends supports.  He pretended that the Trump administration had ended successful efforts to control migration across our southern border, a brazen inversion of the truth.  He claimed that the country supports federal legislation that would, among other things, ban states from verifying voters are who they say they are.  Poll after poll says otherwise.  He promised that Medicare could save hundreds of billions of dollars by cracking down on drugmakers.  Not according to the Congressional Budget Office, it can't.

Biden's first big speech to Congress bombs on all counts.  President Biden's speech Wednesday night failed on all counts:  It didn't sell his latest spending plan, it didn't sell his larger agenda — and, worst of all, it didn't sell him.  Start with the utterly bizarre "mask theater."  All the politicians in the room have been fully vaccinated, and Biden's own CDC says that's enough.  So why the universal masking, and the social distancing?  The message, cutting across the president's occasional optimism, was that this nightmare will never end — which simply isn't true.  Equally, obviously false was Biden's now-routine effort to claim all the credit for successful vaccinations:  All that was set in motion before he took office.  Then he moved into a series of disjointed claims about his "American Families Plan" that barely tracked, even though he was reading a prepared text.  It seemed like he was just skipping whole paragraphs and even pages.  You could see even Democrats wincing above their masks.  He tossed in a few blatant whoppers, like his repeated claims that economists "left, right and center" agree his program will work just as he says.

Biden Slammed For 'Divisive And Radical' Speech That May Cause 'Bloodbath For Democrats' In 2022.  Democrat President Joe Biden faced intense backlash over the speech he delivered to Congress on Wednesday night with many critics calling it extreme, full of false statements, and divisive.  Biden spent the night pushing for big government spending, mocking gun owners, and saying that he did not want conflict with America's enemies.  Biden failed to give the Trump administration any credit for Operation Warp Speed, which did the heavy lifting when it came to getting vaccines developed in historic time.  [Numerous tweets]

MSNBC Struggles to Find Biden Speech Watchers: 'They Just Went to Bed'.  On Thursday [4/29/2021], disappointed MSNBC reporters struggled to find anyone who had watched President Biden's address to Congress.  The correspondents, looking for voter reactions in Georgia and Florida, admitted that most people they talked to didn't see the speech and that some "just went to bed" Wednesday night rather than tune in for the political theater.  "I've got to tell you, most of the folks that I've spoken to here did not actually watch Joe Biden's address last night," correspondent Priscilla Thompson revealed while reporting from Atlanta, Georgia during the left-wing cable channel's 10:00 a.m. ET hour.  She added:  "I've spoken to around a dozen folks and only two of them watched and listened to what he had to say last night."

Biden Got More Views Falling Down The Stairs Than Speaking To Congress.  Last night, former Vice President Joe Biden gave a divisive speech to Congress where he slandered Trump supporters as 'terrorists' who conducted an 'insurrection' on January 6th.  Instead of working to heal the nation, he did everything he could to tear us apart even more.  However, as fate would have it, very few people tuned in to watch the senile old man deliver remarks that were written for him by a staffer.  The ratings have come out, and they're bad.  Only 11 million people tuned in to watch Sleepy Joe speak last night.  For perspective, President Trump's *lowest* rated speech got a whopping 37 million views:  well over 3 times the amount that Joe Biden received.

'Biden sounded like a 15-year-old who's been given a credit card': GOP tears into President's $6 trillion spending spree.  Politicians and pundits from both parties are tearing into Joe Biden's massive spending proposals as questions arise over how the president plans to pay for it all.  'The words of this speech sounded like what you would hear from a 15-year-old if you gave him a credit card with no credit limit on it,' former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie said Wednesday night during a discussion on ABC News.  'Except the words came out of the mouth of an adult who should know better,' the Republican added.

US Catholic bishops may ask Biden to stop receiving Communion if he keeps publicly advocating for abortion rights.  When U.S. Catholic bishops hold their next national meeting in June, they'll be deciding whether to send a tougher-than-ever message to President Joe Biden and other Catholic politicians:  Don't receive Communion if you persist in public advocacy of abortion rights.  At issue is a document that will be prepared for the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops by its Committee on Doctrine, with the aim of clarifying the church's stance on an issue that has repeatedly vexed the bishops in recent decades.  It's taken on new urgency now, in the eyes of many bishops, because Biden — only the second Catholic president — is the first to hold that office while espousing clear-cut support for abortion rights.

More evidence that Biden isn't in charge, and he knows it:
Biden cuts off press questions:  'I'm really gonna be in trouble' if I keep answering.  President Biden said he would be "in trouble" if he continued to take questions from reporters during a rare back-and-forth with the press Tuesday afternoon [4/27/2021].  After speaking about new federal health guidelines for mask-wearing for vaccinated and non-vaccinated individuals, Biden answered a few shouted questions from gathered reporters at the White House.  "I'm sorry," he said, after listening to questions about his own mask-wearing and a potential summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin.  "This is the last question I'll take, and I'm really gonna be in trouble."

I'm pretty sure this is what Biden said.  You didn't need to watch (p)Resident Biden's dim address to the diminished Congress marking his first hundred days in installation to know what would come dribbling out of his mouth.  The party that has made a god of government has seized power, and the figurehead of that government knows he must dance to the Marxist-socialists' tune if he doesn't want to find himself 25th-Amendment-ed (or Jeffrey Epstein-ed!) in short order.  So if you happened to miss Dementia-in-Chief's big speech, here's the official State narrative: there are all kinds of problems in America, and almost all of them should be blamed on the last legitimately elected president and his coalition of Make America Great Again (yuck!) "white supremacists."  Every problem created by those terrible sub-humans can be solved if we just spend more money, give the government more power, stifle economic growth by fighting the weather, stay terribly afraid all of the time, and pray five times a day at the altar of "woke" racial grievance.

First thoughts about Biden's address to Congress.  Biden spoke for over an hour to roughly 200 masked, vaccinated Congresspeople in a mostly empty House chamber.  Showing the manic energy of a grasshopper on amphetamines, he did much better than I expected.  Barring a few verbal slips, Biden managed to stay on point the whole time.  Really, the only problem with the speech was that it was a lie from beginning to end.  The biggest lie was Biden's relentless calls for togetherness. [...] That's a lovely sentiment — and Biden uttered it with a straight face on the same day that his Department of Justice sent the FBI with an open-ended search warrant to conduct a pre-dawn raid on Rudy Giuliani, President Trump's lawyer. [...] Despite a year of Antifa and BLM riots across America — none of which he mentioned — Biden said that "the most lethal terrorist threat to the homeland today is from white supremacist terrorism."  Maybe that explains why the people who were arrested following January 6 are in solitary confinement four months later without ever being tried.

Twitter ridicules Joe Biden after he calls Capitol storming the 'worst attack on our democracy since the Civil War' in first address to Congress.  Joe Biden said during his first address to a joint session of Congress on Wednesday evening [4/28/2021] that the Capitol storming on January 6 was the 'worst attack' on democracy since the Civil War.  The claim immediately led to major backlash, especially from those on right-wing Twitter, who pointed to a slew of other tragedies in America between the 1860s and 2021 — like the September 11, 2001 terrorist attack, Pearl Harbor, presidential assassinations and others.  'January 6 was worse than 9/11?  Or Pearl Harbor?'  Glenn Greenwald, a journalist and former attorney wrote in a Twitter thread.

Obama's puppet spoke last night.  To borrow a phrase from Genesis and the story of Isaac and Jacob and Esau, the voice in the April 28 speech may have been the voice of Biden, but the handiwork was that of Barack Obama and his coterie (including Susan Rice).  We have, it is becoming increasingly clear, our first figurehead president, who will be trotted out from time to time to deceive the American people into believing that he is chief executive. [...] Recall, that Obama was no friend of Israel.  His last act concerning Israel was to enable passage of a Security Council resolution critical of Israel, a resolution the incoming Trump administration tried to prevent, and was sharply attacked by Obama bureaucrats for trying to undo the slap against the Jewish state.  As vice president to Obama, Joe Biden was Obama's errand boy.  And now, the slur hurled against President Trump (in the Putin context) is rather apparent as to Biden:  in the White House, he is, in truth, Obama's puppet.

Here's a Mask Guideline for Joe Biden to Follow.  Joe Biden is scheduled to issue his new mask-wearing guidelines for Americans this week.  Can't wait.  Something else to chuckle over and ignore seeping out of this White House.  Here's my guideline for you, Joe, on wearing masks:  Stop it!  When you're on a Zoom call in front of an international audience and their unmasked leaders, lose your mask, Joe.  You're vaccinated and talking to a screen.  That's not a virtue signal.  That's a stupid signal.  At your desk in the Oval Office, lose your mask.  Everyone around you has been vaccinated.  They've been tested that day.  You look dumb.

'Worst attack on our democracy since the Civil War!' Can Biden really be this dumb?  Whoa!  Joe Biden thinks that that relatively mild, wholly unarmed breach of the Capitol was the "worst attack on our democracy since the Civil War!" How historically ignorant are his speechwriters?  They seem to have forgotten about the assassination of Lincoln, WWI, Pearl Harbor and WWII, the Kennedy assassination, 9/11!  Did they really think that line would resonate with anyone with a modicum of historical knowledge?  While the entire speech was banal, this was the most egregious spoken line.  That an American president would utter such an unspeakable lie is the measure of this man.  He is a fool.  Surely, he knows better but he and his handlers believe that most Americans are so dumb, so uninformed, they will accept such a lie as true.  That one line tells us everything we need to know about who Biden and the cabal running him are; they absolutely believe the American people are not only simpleminded but virtual toddlers who will believe anything they say.

Biden wears a mask for no reason
CDC Concedes the Outside Mask Person is Nuts.  The Centers for Disease Control ordered Americans in 2020 to wear masks when outside and coming anywhere within 6 feet of another person.  The agency never gave an explanation for the guidance since there is no evidence that the novel coronavirus can spread between people who are walking, running or biking past each other outside.  Finally, under pressure by a frustrated public, the CDC acknowledged Tuesday that its order to wear masks for over a year was complete nonsense. [...] I won't even discuss here what most media outlets are reporting that the new CDC guidance on maskless outside relief is mostly for vaccinated people.  I refuse to engage in any government order about wearing masks after getting the vaccine.  As you know, Facebook has censored me for saying that Pres.  Biden is worsening vaccine hesitancy by wearing a mask now.  He added to this drama by walking to his press conference about the new CDC outdoor guidelines by wearing a mask while walking alone outdoors.

Biden's State of the Union update — here's the truth you won't hear from the president.  President Biden will address a joint session of Congress Wednesday night and give Americans an update on the state of the union as he approaches his 100th day in office.  He will tout the $1.9 trillion COVID bill he signed — of which only 9% goes to actual COVID relief.  He will also trumpet his $2 trillion infrastructure plan that would do very little to improve America's infrastructure.  And it's been reported that he'll propose an "American Families Plan" that is likely to cost over a trillion dollars, as well as a huge tax increase that would take more out of the pockets of hardworking Americans in a struggling economy.  In fact, let me save you an hour of your time this evening and sum up President Biden's speech in three words:  boring, but radical.

Pelosi Is Only Allowing 200 People to Attend Biden Speech, Most Republicans Shunned — Don't Want Loud Noises to Trigger Joe's Dementia.  Speaker Nancy Pelosi only invited 200 individuals to Joe Biden's speech to a limited joint session of Congress tonight.  The chamber holds 1,600 individuals.  Only 200 will be allowed in.  During the last sham impeachment of Donald Trump at least 300 individuals were allowed into the House chamber to vote to impeach President Trump.  This is an obvious attempt to protect Joe Biden who continues to slide into the dark night of dementia.  According to HHS Solutions loud noise can be frustrating, confusing, scary, and can even physically hurt a person with dementia.

Biden's 100-Day Rampage.  Not since 1932, when Franklin Delano Roosevelt's first 100 days as president set a benchmark for presidential performance, has any president done so much so quickly as Joe Biden.  In fact, Biden is surpassing Roosevelt significantly in imposing massive damaging changes on America that may not be reversible.  Unlike Roosevelt, Biden isn't only relying on Congress to pass legislation.  Biden is achieving his goals by making international agreements, imposing executive orders and policy decisions, and working hard to undo everything his predecessor did.  Biden will brag about his accomplishments later this week in a speech to a joint session of Congress.  We can expect to hear about his rejoining the Paris Climate Accord and his promise last week to cut U.S. carbon emissions by 50 percent by 2030. [...] If we analyze what these "successes" mean to us, our national security, and our economy, it's quite clear that Biden defines success in terms of his ability to diminish our economy and national security.

Hunter Biden could face federal probe for allegedly illegally buying firearm if GOP's demands come true.  More than 20 House Republicans are calling on President Joe Biden's nominee to lead the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives to investigate the Hunter Biden for allegedly falsifying information in order to obtain a firearm.  "I write to ask that you publicly commit to investigate allegations that Hunter Biden falsified information during a background check in order to illegally obtain a firearm should you be confirmed by the U.S. Senate as the Director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF)," Rep. Bob Good (R-VA) wrote in a letter to Biden's nominee for ATF Director.  The letter, which was obtained by the Daily Caller, was signed by 23 other House Republicans.

Joe Biden Makes an Absolute Clown of Himself on the International Stage.  We are not led by the best in this country.  That's been clear for a while, and Joe Biden is content to keep showing us that over and over.  Yet, there comes a point when his weakness becomes dangerous.  Yesterday was that point.  Biden appeared in a Zoom call with other international leaders, including Russia's Vladimir Putin and China's Xi Jinping.  This was a moment to show American power and greatness.  Instead, Biden stumbled his way through wearing a mask, the only person on the call to do so.  [Tweet]  There are 17 people on that call.  Only Biden chose to wear a mask, while sitting alone on a remote video call, after being vaccinated.  Does he not realize how stupid this makes us look?

Only Biden wears a mask
So Long America, And Thanks For All The Fish.  Welcome to the New World Order:  [Illustration]  Where our PINO is the only tool who feels it necessary to mask up for a virtual climate change summit.  They say a picture is worth a thousand words which is good because I have none; so allow me say simply... **so long America, and thanks for all the fish.  Although Joey is a fish out of water on his best days it still seems like the rest of the world is shooting fish in a barrel now.

It's Biden's 'First 100 Days' Week.  Biden is trying to pack the Supreme Court.  Even though Biden had said on multiple occasions that he would not try to, that is exactly what he and his handlers are trying to do.  Can you imagine if President Trump had tried to pack the Court?  The Supreme Court is historically the guardrail in stopping those who lust for power and seek total control.  If a packed Supreme Court becomes nothing more than a rubber stamp to progressive ideology there will be no separation of powers nor checks and balances.  Biden has enacted more executive orders in his first 100 days of office than any other president during the same time period.  Biden has put Kamala Harris in charge of the border crisis illegal immigrants pour into America, and Harris has been down to the southern border zero times.  Zero times. [...] If someone is in the country legally, they are presumed by Biden to have Covid, urged or even commanded to wear a mask in public.  If someone tries to come into the country illegally, they are assumed not to have Covid and transported to the destination of their choice.

With Polling at 100 Days Will Joe Biden Finally Realize His Agenda Does Not Have a Mandate?  On Sunday morning [4/25/2021], media talking heads were touting President Joe Biden's approval rating after 100 days in office citing polls from NBC News and ABC News/The Washington Post.  Both polls found that Biden's approval sits at 52%, which the commentators pointed out is ten points higher than Donald Trump's at the same milestone in his presidency.  However, as the Washington Examiner's Byron York pointed out, Biden's approval is the third lowest since President Harry Truman.  Only President Trump and President Gerald Ford scored lower.  Both of them had the media united against them, and Biden has received nothing but air cover and glowing coverage from the corporate media.

The Editor says...
Was there ever a mandate for open borders, race riots, high gas prices, weakening the military mask mandates indefinitely, deploying more troops overseas, and the end of gasoline-powered cars because of an imaginary "Climate emergency?"

Biden's Approval Fails to Beat Margin of Error in ABC Poll, Network Floored.  In a brand new ABC News/Washington Post poll the liberal outlets released on Sunday [4/25/2021], President Biden's approval rating was supposedly sitting at an anemic 52 percent.  And according to their methodology, the margin of error for the poll was 3.5 percent.  Now given how that meant Biden could be below 50 percent, it was understandable that the cast of characters on ABC's Good Morning America were floored by the results.  "52 percent of Americans approve of Joe Biden's work in office as he approaches the 100-day mark.  That is ten points higher than Donald Trump at this point in his presidency, but 17 points lower than Barack Obama," touted co-anchor Dan Harris, trying to put a positive spin on the floundering president.  Of course, they failed to mention the margin of error.  Harris was speaking to ABC political director Rick Klein, who didn't share his rosy outlook on the poll results.  "Dan, Biden's honeymoon appears to be ending, if it was even there in the first place," Klein huffed.

Australian Journalist:  Biden Seems 'Determined To Weaken America's Standing, Her Military, And Emboldening' Enemies.  Sky News Australian host James Morrow criticized recent moves President Joe Biden has made that, at least on the surface, appear to be weakening America's military might while America's and Australia's enemies are growing increasingly aggressive.  Morrow made the remarks Saturday [4/24/2021] on Anzac Day, a day where Australians commemorate those in their military who died for their freedoms. [...] "I gotta say, Putin an Xi must be quaking in their boots... or more likely laughing," Morrow said.  "Because, ever since Biden took office, both men have been seeking to cause instability and probe Biden and his weaknesses, which go a lot further than just being unable to string together a coherent sentence.  China is looking increasingly muscular when it comes to Taiwan while Russia is conducting an unprecedented military buildup on the borders of Ukraine, actions which, whether they lead to actual conflict or not, have already raised the prospect of how Biden will or will not respond."

Son-in-Law Benefited From Loan Program Biden Ripped.  The Biden family, like other political families before it, had and still has assorted business interests.  If not properly set apart from official government actions, these interests can present the appearance of impropriety.  Caution was in order during the 2020 campaign, and so too now.  On Inauguration Day, Biden issued a sweeping executive order that outlined ethics requirements for executive branch personnel, and as the federal government continues to pump trillions of dollars into the economy to combat the pandemic and its impact, his administration has put in place guardrails to ensure that the relief money gets into the right hands.  His family, meanwhile, continues to go about its business.  Enter Howard Krein.  A doctor and the president's son-in-law, Krein advised Biden during the campaign on issues related to the coronavirus while simultaneously running a venture capital firm.  That entity, called Startup Health, has invested in entrepreneurs eager to combat the pandemic.  Krein is listed on its website as the chief medical officer.

Republicans Not Very Interested in Hearing Joe Mumble On About His 100 Days.  In case you hadn't heard, Granny Wine Box has invited 46* to the capital to give his very first address to Congress next Wednesday, which will roughly coincide with the 100th day of his Identity Politics-Social Justice handler's control of the our government.  It's a limited seating affair and not to be a State of the Union, because if it was he'd have to admit their responsibility of deepening the racial division of the country and the ongoing damage they are doing because of lack of Law and Order. [...] Rank-and-file Republicans appear to have little interest in attending the speech, even if they could.  The House is out of session that day, which means members would have to make a special trip back to D.C.  Most would rather be in there districts and spend some time with their families and probably wouldn't go in the first place anyway.

Biden's first address to Congress is invite-only.  Only invited members of Congress will be allowed to attend President Biden's address to a Joint Session of Congress on Wednesday, and the event "will be invitation-only for a limited number of members of Congress," according to a memo from acting House Sergeant at Arms Timothy Blodgett.  Any members who have not received an invite from th
