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?

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.

Imagine what would happen if this confused old man had a difficult job that required him to make difficult, high-stakes decisions every day.

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 their congressional leadership "will not be permitted in the Capitol after 5 p.m.," according to the memo obtained by CBS News.  The sergeant at arms noted the event is restricted due to COVID-19, although it's unclear exactly how many members, and which ones, will be allowed in the Capitol.  Unlike a typical address before a joint session, invited members will not be permitted to bring a guest.  First lady Jill Biden will also attend, but will not bring any guests.  Mr. Biden is set to deliver his first address to Congress on Wednesday [4/28/2021] at 9 p.m.

Slow-Motion Suicide of the West.  One of the strangest things about the current administration (I hesitate to call it the "Biden Administration" because Joe Biden is clearly just a puppet in the hands of the factions and personalities that engineered his "election") — one of the strangest features of the administration, I say, is the breathless velocity with which they are proceeding the bring about that "fundamental transformation of the United States of America" that Biden's predecessor and (possibly) puppet master Barack Obama promised.  The current administration is behaving as if it had a huge popular mandate.  In fact, it won, if it won, by the narrowest of margins.  (I'll repeat parenthetically here what I have said elsewhere:  I believe Donald Trump actually won but that the concerted efforts of his opponents overturned the election.)  And stepping down from the top spot, the election of 2020 was a disaster for the Democrats, though not, I predict, as much of a disaster as the 2022 election will be.

Old Joe Biden vs. New Joe Biden.  Writer Salena Zito best described the Rorschach test that Donald Trump represented.  As she put it in 2016, "The press takes him literally, but not seriously; his supporters take him seriously, but not literally."  Now comes another presidential dilemma:  What to make of the new and radical Joe Biden?  On the surface, it seems an odd question about a 78-year-old man who has spent nearly 50 years in Washington.  But the new Biden, the President Biden, doesn't sound and act like the former senator and vice president. [...] The old Biden was proud about his friendship with Southern segregationists and called Sen. Robert Byrd, a former member of the KKK, a mentor.  The new Biden declares all America guilty of "systemic racism" and says it's "a stain on the nation's soul."  The old Biden defended the Senate filibuster and opposed packing the Supreme Court.  The new Biden calls the filibuster a relic of Jim Crow and forms a commission to study court changes.

The two faces of Joe Biden — Senile old fool or political genius?  Joe Biden is something of an enigma.  The image with the most publicity is that of a cognitively-impaired puppet who signs whatever is put in front of him.  Implicit in this image is the presence of an eminence grise — Obama, Soros, Pelosi, whomever — the real power behind the throne.  His handlers, critics suggest, are using Biden as a figurehead who will eventually step aside for Kamala Harris and the full-fledged leftist agenda.  "I don't think there's any doubt Biden's senile," said respected Fox News political analyst Brit Hume.  We have a lot of evidence for this interpretation.  Hiding out in his basement during the election campaign.  Joe's inability to put together a coherent sentence.  His refusal to hold press conferences and to answer questions from the media other than the ones that appear to be scripted.  Refusing to meet with foreign heads-of-state.

Biden's bizarre kabuki.  No one greeted the Prime Minister of Japan, Yoshihide Suga, a head of state, when he arrived at the White House last Friday for the first state visit President Biden's overseers allowed him to have since his installation.  A door guard had to admit Mr. Suga and he stood around in the foyer surely wondering if he had the date wrong or was at the wrong address, while someone summoned the Vice President from somewhere.  Mr. Suga then stood before the press while a grim-faced Mrs. Heiress nattered on about the terribly gun-violent country he was visiting, that there was no question that this gun violence must end and how she, that she and Mr. Biden were thinking of the families of the gun-violence victims [...] Then she smiled and tossed her Breck-girl hair and welcomed the Prime Minister of Japan and [...], who are these people?  Granny and Uncle Jed had better company manners.  You can't see Mr. Suga's entire face, but his eyes look confused about the [situation] he'd been dropped into and he was probably counting the minutes until he could leave.  I was embarrassed for Mr. Suga and the Japanese who had to watch their leader be treated as if he didn't matter.  Who's in charge of protocol in Mr. Biden's White House?  Is it the same person who led the Dalai Lama through the kitchen and out the back door by the garbage bags after his state visit with Obama?

Has Joe Biden Committed Impeachable Offenses?  Joe Biden, in the early days of his presidency, issued executive orders stopping the construction of the border wall and the Keystone pipeline.  Regarding the pipeline, this order put Americans out of work with the justification being the claim by so-called environmentalists that pipelines cause irreparable harm to the landscape, the animal kingdom, and the climate.  This argument was used decades ago regarding the Trans Alaska pipeline.  One notable claim was that the West Arctic caribou herd would be endangered.  The fact is that since the pipeline was completed, the herd is now four times larger.  While this fact alone may say nothing about Joe Biden, it does tell us that his reason for killing American jobs is based on lies.  I would say this qualifies as serious incompetence.  We will call this Article 1.

Biden Rushes to Short-Circuit the Economic Recovery Because He Has No Choice.  Joe Biden is not a stupid man.  He may believe crazy stuff but he certainly knows that raising taxes on the most productive members of society and their capital will choke off economic growth as the nation emerges from its self-inflicted, pandemic economic wounds.  With less growth and fewer jobs, Biden is fully aware of what his policies will do.  But looking at the politics of Biden's situation, you can see why he doesn't feel he has a choice.  Unless Republicans shoot themselves in the foot, they are bound to win back at least one house of Congress.  That telescopes Biden's time to make good on the trillions of dollars in promises he made to every racial, ethnic, and gender identity group in America from four years to now less than two.  The more than $4 trillion he's already sent out is just a down payment.

More evidence that Biden's first term is really Obama's third term:
Biden's Secretary of State Anthony Blinken will allow embassies to fly the Pride flag on the same pole as the US flag.  President Joe Biden's administration will allow US embassies around the world to fly the gay Pride flag on the same flagpole as the American flag, reversing a Trump-era policy.  In 2019, then-Secretary of State Mike Pompeo blocked embassy requests to fly the symbol of support for LBGTQ people on the same pole as the Stars and Stripes.  But now Biden's Secretary of State Anthony Blinken has given approval to fly the flag at diplomatic outposts around the world, according to a confidential cable reviewed by Foreign Policy magazine.

State Department permits LGBTQ Pride flags to fly at U.S. embassies and consulates:  Report.  A State Department cable reviewed by The New York Times says U.S. embassies and consulates may now fly LGBTQ pride flags.  Secretary of State Antony J. Blinken authorized the move for diplomats for International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia on May 17.  Diplomats may also continue the practice in June during Pride Month and when "appropriate in light of local conditions."

The Editor says...
"Local conditions" means the homosexual pride flag won't be required in Muslim countries, where it would probably get somebody killed.

Greg Gutfeld:  Biden's been 'leaving the stain' of disunity for 5 decades, America on a path to 'destruction'.  Greg Gutfeld implies that career politician Joe Biden should look in the mirror when he finds America guilty of systemic racism.  "If [Biden] believes in systemic racism as he said last night, is a stain on America, he was there leaving the stain for five decades."  The Fox News Channel host also insisted that America's purported disunity, a destructive narrative pushed by the Democrats and the corporate media, is playing into the hands of CCP-controlled China, which is rapidly expanding its political, economic, and military tentacles across the globe.  During a discussion of the Chauvin verdict and other related issues on The Five, Gutfeld indirectly reminded viewers that Biden entered federal office in 1973 and has been on the government payroll, apart from the four years of the Trump administration, ever since.

Biden to talk climate change awareness at very non-green 'drive-in rally'.  President Biden appeared to send a very mixed message Friday [4/23/2021], saying he will mark his 100th day in office with a Georgia "drive-in rally" to promote his policy agenda — including phasing out fossil fuels.  Pro-Biden car owners will spew greenhouse gases in the parking lot of a yet-to-be-named venue in the Atlanta metro area, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution first reported.  White House press secretary Jen Psaki confirmed the visit at her daily briefing Friday.  "On the president's 100th day in office, he and the first lady will travel to Georgia to highlight how he has delivered on his promises to the American people.  While he is there, he will participate in a car rally," Psaki said.

Biden address to Congress to feature fewer attendees, no first lady's box.  When President Biden delivers an address to a joint session of Congress next week, only about 200 people will be allowed into the chamber and no House members or senators will be allowed to bring guests.  In a break with tradition, there will be no first lady's box, which is often filled with guests of the first family.  Most White House staffers are also expected to watch the event remotely.  White House press secretary Jen Psaki told reporters Friday [4/23/2021] that first lady Jill Biden would not bring guests to Wednesday's event.  A spokesperson for the first lady later said that she will attend the speech in person.

Biden says fossil fuel workers should get new jobs 'where they live'.  President Biden on Friday [4/23/2021] said people who lose jobs in the fossil fuel industry as a result of environmental reforms must be provided new job opportunities "in the places where they live."  Biden claimed in a speech at the White House that phasing out coal, gas and oil doesn't require economic devastation in current energy-producing regions.  "As we transition to a clean energy future, we must ensure that workers who have thrived in yesterday's and today's industries have as bright a tomorrow in the new industries as well as in the places where they live and the communities they have built," Biden told a summit of world leaders.

How Biden's climate plan could limit you to eat just one burger a MONTH, cost $3.5K a year per person in taxes, force you to spend $55K on an electric car and 'crush' American jobs.  President Joe Biden's ambitious plan to slash greenhouse emissions by 50 to 52 percent over the next decade could prompt sweeping changes that could affect how Americans eat, drive and heat their homes.  Biden announced the goal to cut emissions by 2030, compared with 2005 levels, at the start of a two-day climate summit on Thursday [4/22/2021].  He vowed the plan, which would set the US on a path of a zero emissions economy by no later than 2050, would create jobs and boost economies.

The Editor says...
Exactly the opposite is true, as is often the case when Joe Biden speaks.  His plan would crush the U.S. economy and eliminate jobs — all for the sake of reducing carbon dioxide emissions slightly, which will have zero positive effects.

Joe Biden's climate summit attracts... 200 YouTube viewers.  Joe Biden's director for intelligence just declared climate to be front and center of American foreign policy.  Biden himself calls climate "the existential crisis of our time."  And with Biden's big climate summit featuring top world leaders as it played live, with all its fancy Zoom graphics and summit pageantry, how many viewers did he draw?  [Tweet]  That's some existential crisis of our time that you've got there, Joe, drawing that great big crowd of 200, for an event featuring China's President Xi Jinping, Russia's President Vladimir Putin, Pope Francis, Greta Thunberg, plus the Davos corporate crowd, and assorted union bigs.  Whole lot of virtue-signaling there, for that viewership of 200.  Sound like anyone's alarmed? [...] Probably the same 200 who attended his rallies.

China Joe Signs Executive Order Banning Federal Use of the Words "Wuhan Virus" to Describe Wuhan Virus.  China Joe Biden signed an executive order to ban the use of Wuhan Virus to describe the Wuhan Virus.  That's important!  Joe Biden still says it's xenophobic.

Isn't this what the RICO laws are for?
Joe Biden creating 'sophisticated, organized illegal immigration,' Michigan Republican charges.  A first-term Republican congresswoman accused the Biden administration of effectively abetting the cartels' human trafficking in the way that it resettles children who come over the border alone.  Rep. Lisa McClain of Michigan claimed the U.S. government was facilitating the back-end of the smuggling process after a trip to tour a government holding facility in her home state on Monday [4/19/2021].  "What I saw, quite honestly, was sophisticated, organized illegal immigration," said McClain.  "I choose those words very, very carefully because the system and the process that I observed was unbelievable."

Biden Military Disciplines Soldiers for Flying Choppers Too Low Over BLM Insurrectionists.  The Democrats and their media veer from condemning the National Guard for not immediately responding on Jan 6 (even though they were the ones who decided that a few hundred unarmed guardsmen should be limited to directing traffic) to condemning them for being there when Black Lives Matter racial supremacists were wrecking Washington D.C.  Here, without a trace of shame, they're pivoting from the "not enough force" to the "too much force" narratives.  But there's always too much force when Democrats are rioting, but not enough force when Republicans are rioting.

It isn't going to get any better:
Biden's team spends first 100 days in constant messaging cleanup mode.  President Joe Biden and members of his administration have spent much of their first 100 days struggling to put forward a clear message on everything from COVID-19 to immigration.  Composed of seasoned Obama administration and Democratic campaign veterans, the Biden White House's communications shop was heralded as a welcome departure from the Trump administration's often scattershot operation.  But the Biden White House has at times failed to clarify things that the president has said or has contributed to the confusion surrounding some of its policy rollouts.  And the press shop struggled to message a controversy of its own in February, when a communications staffer faced scrutiny for allegedly berating a female reporter who was working on a story about his romantic relationship.  White House press secretary Jen Psaki defended the decision not to fire the staffer amid criticism of his behavior until he resigned.

Biden Falsely Describes Race Rioters Who Burned America as Marching "In Peace".  Biden's response to the legal lynching of Derek Chauvin for the drug overdose death of George Floyd came with the false claim that the racist rioters and looters of the black supremacist Black Lives Matter hate movement had protested "in peace and with purpose".  Purpose, yes.  Peace, no.  Unless Biden considers $2 billion in looting damage, at least 8 mostly peaceful murders, including that of a black 8-year-old girl, and the destruction of entire communities to be peaceful.

Biden announces it's your 'patriotic duty' to get jabbed with the experimental Covid vaccine.  Yesterday [4/21/2021], while patting himself on the back for carrying out the program established by President Trump to create, produce and distribute vaccines against Covid-19, President Biden announced a first-ever "patriotic duty" to get vaccinated. [...] If the Constitution is being reinterpreted to mean that the state can impose medical procedures on its citizenry as a duty, then given the below replacement level birthrate, can the state impose a "duty" on pregnant women to carry their unborn children until birth?  I wonder what the feminists think of the idea of the state imposing medical procedures as a "duty"?

Biden to employers:  Offer vaccination incentives.  President Biden said Wednesday the government will reimburse small employers who give paid time off to workers who step out for a COVID-19 vaccine and need time to recover from any side effects.  Speaking from the White House, Mr. Biden implored businesses of all sizes to offer gift cards, compensation and other incentives to get vaccinated.  He characterized it as a win-win that ensures a healthy and productive workplace while building sufficient immunity in American society.  "One concern I've heard from so many Americans is that they can't afford the time to take the time off to get vaccinated or lose a day's work because they're feeling slightly under the weather after their shot," Mr. Biden said.  "No working American should lose a single dollar from their paycheck because they chose to fulfill their patriotic duty of getting vaccinated."

The Editor says...
Imagine that.  The guy who accepted the office of President, after his party stole the election, is lecturing us about our patriotic duty.

Biden's statement following the Chauvin verdict was disgraceful.  Biden was always a vicious buffoon. [...] In the 1970s, when Biden entered the White House, he attached himself to the white supremacists and segregationists.  By the 1980s, when their heyday had passed, he joined forces with Ted "Chappaquiddick" Kennedy," an alcoholic, manslaughterer and the terror of decent women, to launch a racist attack against Clarence Thomas, a black man of dignity, intelligence, and integrity, solely because Thomas wasn't prepared as a judge to jettison the Constitution to achieve leftist political ends.  In the 1990s, Biden reinvented himself as tough on crime.  One of his signature accomplishments was the 1994 Crime Bill, which sent three generations of Black men to prison.  It took Donald Trump to begin undoing its effects on the Black community, in which young men were raised by gangsters because their fathers were rotting in jail thanks to Joe Biden.

Christians must 'stand up' against 'horrible reality' of Biden admin.  Christian conservative leader James Dobson is urging Americans to take a public stand before it's "too late" against President Joe Biden's "radically-left agenda" that has brought the nation to a point where it is "teetering on the edge."  "It's more clear than ever that our nation is teetering on the edge," said Dobson, who has advised five presidents on faith and family matters over four decades, in a March 26 piece published on his website.

Joe Biden Has Already Betrayed The Christians Who Voted For Him As The 'More Moral' Candidate.  Many Christians are feeling frustrated with the Biden administration.  A recent op-ed in the Wall Street Journal points to how Joe Biden's flip-flop on refugees is frustrating evangelicals who foolishly voted for him last November.  As the Journal contributor noted, they have a reason to feel betrayed.  Believers who care about values, life, and religious liberty continue to find that the new administration has let them down time and time again.  While Biden may attend Mass regularly, many of his policy positions raise questions of how diligently he practices his Catholic faith outside the four walls of his church.

Why not just call each of the jury members while you're at it, Joe?
Tipping The Scales:  Joe Biden Calls George Floyd's Family Ahead of Chauvin Verdict.  On Monday's [4/19/2021] edition of NBC's "TODAY Show," Floyd's younger brother Philonse revealed that President Biden had called the family that day to "let us know he was praying for us and hoping everything would come out to be ok."  "He knows how it is to lose a family member, and he knows the process of what we're going through," Philonse reflected, alluding to the death of Joe Biden's son Beau in 2015.  This is not the first time Biden has contacted the family, having reached out to them soon after Floyd's death.

Biden says he's "praying the verdict is the right verdict" in Chauvin Trial.  Biden, who likely only knows the evidence in the case from the mainstream media, is setting up to excuse riots and looting if there is the "wrong verdict." He doesn't say that, of course, but that's what he's doing.

President Biden says he's 'praying' that jurors convict Derek Chauvin.  President Biden says he's "praying" that jurors convict former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin of murder for killing George Floyd — less than 24 hours after the judge in the case called on elected officials to stop talking about the trial.  "I'm praying the verdict is the right verdict.  Which is — I think it's overwhelming in my view," Biden told reporters at an unrelated Oval Office event Tuesday [4/20/2021].  The blunt assessment by the nation's top elected official comes the morning after the judge in the Chauvin case called on politicians to zip their lips.  Judge Peter Cahill said Monday that Rep. Maxine Waters' (D-Calif.) remarks urging protestors to be more confrontational in the event of an acquittal could lead to the whole case "being overturned."

'Solid Approval Ratings' Really?  Nonsense, Here's Why Americans Have Had Enough of Biden.  There is a "yuuge" disconnect between Joe Biden's alleged poll numbers and "solid approval ratings" the liberal lapdog media continues to try to push down the throat of America, and the widespread dissatisfaction with his near-daily decisions and the radical agenda he is hellbent on enacting.  And that disconnect has existed from day one. [...] Addled Joe Biden — who first ran for president in 1988, 33 years ago in a campaign that crashed and burned before it got off the ground, in large part due to his plagiarization of an entire speech by UK Labour Party Leader Neil Kinnock — finally made it to the Oval Office.  But the reality is when he finally made it, Corn Pop's pal was instantly reduced to little more than a not-Trump placeholder for the Democrat Party.  To the rest of us, Biden is little more than a mindless bot whose strings are pulled by radical leftists who purposely seek to destroy America as we know it.

New Survey On Hunter Biden Should Have Joe Biden Trembling In Fear.  A brand new survey that bot a majority of Americans want a special counsel to investigate Hunter Biden, the son of Joe Biden.  Ranging from his shady business dealings abroad, tax fraud allegations, and other trouble with the law — both Republicans and Democrats think someone free of political influence needs to investigate Hunter Biden.  TIPP Insights conducted a poll in which it asked Americans:  "Should a special counsel be appointed to investigate Hunter Biden?"

The Editor says...
Yes, the conservative internet news sites are sure this is Biden's Achilles Heel.  This is the scandal that's gonna sink him, if his habitual lying, his record-breaking age, his worsening senility, his pandering to China, his crass treatment of women and children, his gun control edicts, his trillion-dollar pork barrel spending, the crisis at the border, and his all-around stupidity and incompetence don't get him thrown out.  Any one of these scandals would be front-page news every day if a Republican president was in the middle of it.

White House Report Card:  Joe Biden, flip-flopper in chief.  This week's White House Report Card finds President Joe Biden showing more than ever that he's an able flip-flopper on major issues.  From his prior opposition to packing the Supreme Court, redefining his promise of "unity" to erase Washington Republicans, and putting out the welcome mat for refugees after promising to keep the numbers low, Biden has proven that few of his positions are heartfelt.

It's amateur hour at the White House when the Japanese Prime Minister visits.  On Friday [4/16/2021], Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga became the first world leader to visit the Biden White House.  These visits help set the tone for an administration.  That being the case, the new administration's tone is inept and rude.  Biden was also absent for the first part of it, leaving an awkward Kamala Harris to trash the U.S. for gun violence before turning to welcome Suga.  When Biden took over, things went downhill.  Much as the media liked to present President Trump as a coarse madman, he was in fact a polished man of the world.  He was entirely comfortable in the presence of world leaders and they seemed to like him.  The opposite is true with Harris and Biden.  The problems began the moment the Prime Minister arrived at the White House.  According to The Conservative Treehouse, there was "no-one greeting the head of the Japanese government upon arrival.  When you consider the leftist narrative about stopping Asian hate, there is a rather ironic aspect to this visit and snub."  Things didn't get better after that.

The oaf of office:
Biden Administration Conduct Hot Mess of Diplomatic Blunders During Japanese Prime Minister Visit.  Once Prime Minister Suga was inside the White House he was shunned for the greeting by his diplomatic peer, Joe Biden.  Instead, Kamala Harris was dispatched to deliver introductory remarks.  Beyond the inappropriate form, the subtle message of Kamala Harris being the acting head of the executive branch was on display.  Once PM Suga and Joe Biden sat down things got worse.  By the time they both attended the Rose Garden joint press conference, Biden was calling Japanese Master's Champion Hideki Matsuyama "a boy".  Biden said:  "I know how proud you are of the people of Japan are.  And you've got a Japanese boy coming over here, and guess what, he won the Masters."

Biden calls Masters golf champion Matsuyama, 29, 'a Japanese boy'.  President Biden referred to 29-year-old Masters golf champion Hideki Matsuyama as "a Japanese boy" during a joint press conference Friday with Japan's prime minister.  During an event in the White House Rose Garden, Mr. Biden told Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga that the Japanese are understandably proud of their country.  "You've got a Japanese boy coming over here and winning the Masters," the 78-year-old Mr. Biden said.  "He won the green jacket. ... the first Japanese player to take home that green jacket."

Hunter Biden's $2 million book deal sells just ... 10,000 books.  Last February, I excused Hunter Biden's steep $2 million book deal as unlikely to be a disguised political bribe as such things often go, on the grounds that it probably would sell a lot of books.  I was wrong.  The attempt to scarf up profit from old pop's name by the younger Biden has been a total dud.  According to the New York Post, it's only sold about 10,638 copies.  Assuming that all of them were sold at retail full price, that would be $297,864 net for the publisher at most.

JoeBama's Afghanistan Plan is to Follow The Afghanistan Withdrawal Plan of President Trump, But Not Give Him Credit.  In February of 2020, the Trump administration announced a breakthrough in negotiations between the government of Afghanistan and the Taliban.  Within the agreement the Trump administration committed to a withdrawal of American military this year.  Today [4/14/2021] Joe Biden read from a script which outlined his administration was going to follow that exact plan.  Biden didn't know what he was reading, he was just doing what they told him to do while adding some emotional talking points to make it sound like he is not announcing and following the exact plan that President Trump and Secretary Pompeo put together.  Read the Trump Afghan agreement and you will see Biden is just plagiarizing Trump and Pompeo.  At the time of the Trump agreement the media emphasized the negative opinions of it.  Now that they have changed the name to Biden, the media swoon.

Hunter Biden's autobiography 'Beautiful Things' sells just 10,000 copies in its first week despite his massive publicity push.  Hunter Biden's new autobiography, Beautiful Things, posted disappointing sales in its first week on the shelves, selling just over 10,000 copies despite a massive promotional push.  The new 272-page book detailing Hunter's struggles with addiction and tragedy debuted at No. 12 on the Publisher's Weekly hardcover nonfiction chart, after selling a meager 10,638 copies.  It was edged out slightly in the rankings by 'The Calcium Connection:  The Little-Known Enzyme at the Root of Your Cellular Health.'

"I'll Tell You Later, Let's Go" — Biden Tells Reporters to Leave Oval Office After Meeting with Congressional Black Caucus.  Joe Biden met with the Congressional Black Caucus in the Oval Office on Tuesday to discuss his infrastructure package and how he will allocate money to black communities.  After mumbling for 3 minutes, Biden had enough and told the reporters to leave.

Wasn't he invited to give a State of the Union address?
Speaker Pelosi Invites Joe Biden to Address Congress on April 28.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi invited Joe Biden to address a joint session of Congress on April 28.  New Presidents typically make their first address to Congress shortly after Inauguration Day, but Joe Biden is very feeble.  Biden barely made it through a scripted solo press conference a couple weeks ago.

Republican Attorneys General Plan to Create Legal Roadblocks for Biden Agenda.  Republican attorneys general are determined to mount numerous legal challenges against President Joe Biden, creating a formidable roadblock to the president's agenda.  In less than three months since Biden was sworn into office, Republican states have waged war on his agenda, suing the administration on climate change, energy, immigration, and taxation policy.  But the conservative attorneys general who started filing the lawsuits in March said they aren't done yet and expect to continue challenging the administration in court.

Biden Admin Announces It Will Deploy More Troops Overseas in Drastic Reversal of Trump Policy.  The Biden administration announced Tuesday that it will send 500 more U.S. troops to Germany, reversing former President Donald Trump's troop withdrawal policies.  Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin made the announcement during a trip to Berlin on Tuesday and said the troops will be stationed this fall "to strengthen deterrence and defense in Europe," according to Axios.  The announcement comes two months after Biden froze the withdrawal plans so the Pentagon could conduct a review of how American forces are deployed around the world, The New York Times reported.

Is Germany in danger?  U.S. soldiers should be at the Mexican border.
Pentagon will send 500 new troops to Germany in reversal of Trump plan.  The Pentagon on Tuesday [4/13/2021] said it will send an additional 500 U.S. troops to Germany in the coming months, marking a stark reversal of former President Trump's ill-fated push to move thousands of forces out of the country.  Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin announced the shift after meeting with German Defense Minister Annegret Kramp-Karrenbaue, who hailed the plan as a "strong signal" of America's commitment to its European ally.  The 500 troops will join the roughly 35,000 American personnel now in Germany.  They are expected to arrive by the fall.

Biden's policies are playing into Trump's hands.  Donald Trump's battle with the bipartisan post-Reagan American political establishment is settling determinedly into its third and, presumably, final round.  Trump astounded the world in 2016 when he won the first round and the presidency.  His opponents then rallied with extraordinary ingenuity and perseverance, taking advantage of Trump's many imprudent statements and lapses of judgment to mobilize a mighty counterattack at all levels.  They maintained their stranglehold on most of the national political media, too, which cast aside the entire basis of journalistic professionalism — the separation of reporting from commentary.  Nevertheless, Trump defeated the nonsense of "Russia collusion" and the Ukraine-based impeachment that succeeded it.  All polls indicated a year ago that he had a commanding advantage in the eight-month run-up to the November election.  But then the COVID-19 pandemic descended, and Democrats — with objectively impressive determination — saw the exposure of Trump's political jugular and lunged at it.

Manchin feels 'great' about wife's nomination to $160,000-a-year federal post.  Sen. Joe Manchin III of West Virginia, perhaps the most important Democratic vote for the Biden administration, said Monday [4/12/2021] that he hopes Mr. Biden's nomination of his wife to a $160,000-a-year post "goes through well."  "That's great," Mr. Manchin told reporters upon learning that the president formally nominated Gayle Connelly Manchin to serve as federal co-chair of the Appalachian Regional Commission.  "I hope to see she goes through well.  Everybody seems to know her pretty well."  The president had announced his intention to nominate Mrs. Manchin last month.  Mr. Manchin said his wife was recommended for the post by Randi Weingarten, president of the American Federation of Teachers.

I am a '2020 Doubter'.  I cannot prove my suspicion that anti-Trump forces worldwide joined together before the 2020 election to deny Trump a second term.  I cannot prove they invited China to release a biological weapon that hurt all countries except China.  I cannot prove that former President Barack Obama was at the forefront of this conspiracy.  I cannot prove that cabinet departments supposedly working for President Trump were actually undermining him every chance they got.  I cannot prove that the American government no longer serves the interests of the American people and, instead, now serves the interests of the Democratic Party and Uncle Xi Jin Ping.  I cannot prove that America, which once was a proud and independent democratic country, is now a servant of Communist Chinese interests.  I cannot prove these suspicions are true because the entities created to investigate these matters have been bought and paid for by Communist China.  Even if I could prove these things, I fear no one would care.  Then again, maybe I am wrong, and people do care.

Biden Administration Withhold $150 Million of Ukraine Aid Until Ukraine Government Reform — Exact Process Democrats Impeached Trump For.  Yes, as you read the following report from OANN, you would not be mistaken to identify the JoeBama administration is now doing exactly the same thing President Trump was accused of, wrongfully, which led to the a ridiculous impeachment effort.  Meanwhile Russian President Vladimir Putin is laughing hysterically.

Biden's German Shepherd is removed from White House for 'additional training' after he bit two government staffers.  President Joe Biden's rescue pup Major will be removed from the White House to undergo additional training after a second biting incident raised more questions about the dog's behavior.  The White House argues the three-year-old German Shepherd is still adjusting to his new life at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.  And, to help him, he'll have a few weeks of training in the Washington D.C. area.  'Major, the Bidens' younger dog, will undergo some additional training to help him adjust to life in the White House,' Michael LaRosa, a spokesperson for first lady Jill Biden, told  'The off-site, private training will take place in the Washington, D.C. area, and it is expected to last a few weeks.'

How the Obama Crew Makes Things Worse.  The question confronting us Neanderthals during the present leftward lurch is: who exactly is the man behind the curtain pulling the levers of the Biden operation?  Sundance thinks it's the Obama crew:  ["]Barack Obama and his ideologues (who took over the DNC) are now completely in control over the leftist policy execution...  Today, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki, the former spokesperson for Obama's State Department, essentially admitted that Obama's network was in charge, and Biden receives his instructions from the crew.["]  In a way, I'm encouraged, because I don't think the Obama crew is that smart.  I think that if President Obama, the First Black President, had granted America absolution from the sin of slavery in 2009, he would have been nominated for bipartisan political sainthood and the Democrats would have owned the future.  But he didn't: instead he doubled down on his race card bet and lost the House in 2010 and the Senate in 2014.

Also posted under Obama's third term.

The Mendacity of Joe Biden and the Ruling Elites.  An ex-business partner and I were recently reminiscing about an encounter we had with then Senator Biden at MBNA's new corporate offices in downtown Wilmington in 1996.  (MBNA was then the world's largest independent credit card issuer.) [...] The chance meeting at the MBNA building was appropriate as Biden was not only a Senator from Delaware but was so blatantly acting as MBNA's chief "lobbyist" that he was often referred to as "The Senator from MBNA."  In 1996, MBNA hired Joe's son, Hunter, fresh out of law school, having never worked in finance or banking, as a "senior vice president" making $100,000 per year ($168,000 in 2021 dollars) plus a substantial signing bonus.  It was after this run-in with Joe Biden that I began to pay more attention to his fabulist tendencies, lack of character and compulsive lying.  While his cognitive decline is an ancillary factor in what the American people see today, the reality is that he has always been someone who will do or say anything to advance his personal aspirations.

Sidney Powell Goes Off on Imposter President Joe Biden.  Attorney Sidney Powell joined radio host Rose Tennent to discuss her ongoing efforts to expose the fraud in the 2020 presidential election.  During the interview, Sidney Powell predicted that Maricopa County's upcoming audit will reveal over 100,000 fraudulent ballots in Arizona.  Maybe that explains why Democrats sent their top Attorney Mark Elias to stop the audit before the fraud is revealed.

Joe Biden considers ordering climate confessions.  President Joe Biden is readying an executive order that would require companies to disclose the risks they face from climate change, special climate envoy John Kerry said this week.  Kerry didn't elaborate on the details of the order or the timing, but the move would fulfill a promise Biden made on the campaign trail to require all public companies to report their emissions and climate-related risks.  Already, the Biden administration has taken a number of actions to bolster capacity at agencies such as the Treasury Department, the Securities and Exchange Commission, the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, and the Federal Reserve to address the risks climate change poses to the financial system.  Last month, the SEC asked for input on establishing a regime for climate disclosures.

The FBI / DOJ is MIA on Hunter Biden, Seth Rich, Anthony Weiner laptops.  The FBI and DOJ have been missing in action for years.  Failing in disclosing and acting on the information in the Hunter Biden, Seth Rich, and Anthony Weiner laptops.  The two-tiered system of American justice has never been more hypocritical on display.  Democrats and the deep state lie, cover-up and protect the likes of Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Hunter Biden, and the Biden crime family.  Yet the full weight and power of the government are brought against any Republican connected to Donald Trump.  The story of the Hunter Biden, Seth Rich, and Anthony Weiner laptops is a tale of just how debased and corrupt our Government institutions and modern media have become. [...] Attorney General William Barr covered up the existence of the Hunter Biden FBI investigation for two years.  Twitter, Facebook, and corporate media censored the Hunter Biden laptop story with weeks to go before the election.

Joe Biden sure does a lot of favors for China.  I wonder why.
Biden Is Determined to Create Jobs... in China.  Biden will, in his American Jobs Plan as it's formally called, create millions of good-paying jobs.  Many of those jobs, however, will not be in America.  For three principal reasons, his jobs plan will create full employment in China.  First, Biden will create substantially more demand for Chinese materials to go into America's planned physical infrastructure improvements.  Second, the large corporate tax increases he proposes will drive even more businesses out of the U.S. — and across the Pacific.  Third, Biden's "green energy" ideas will eliminate one of the crucial advantages American manufacturers now have: cheap energy.  In Beijing, there must be, at the moment, great elation and anticipation.  On the first point, America's infrastructure spending will thicken the profits mainly of Chinese producers.  Biden, at the Carpenters Pittsburgh Training Center, proposed to spend $621 billion to, among other things, modernize 20,000 miles of roadways, repair the 10 "most economically significant bridges" and 10,000 "smaller bridges," and "upgrade" ports and airports.  Those tasks and others requiring cement and steel will benefit the world's No. 1 producer of these products:  China.

If it ain't broke, Joe Biden will break it.  The president is on a tear, as in tearing up arrangements that were achieving their objectives.  His early results are disastrous.  In an act of astonishing foolishness, Biden created a humanitarian and public safety crisis on our southern border by dismantling a successful policy structure that took years to achieve.  In the Mideast, he looks determined to undo the Arab-Israeli alliance Donald Trump forged by returning to the failed policies Biden helped to implement in the Obama-Biden administration.  If that were all, it would be more than enough.  But it's not all.  Biden also wants to end the Senate filibuster and took the first step toward packing the Supreme Court.  Those two moves are so destructive that even Sen. Mitt Romney, who usually saves his criticism for fellow Republicans, drew the line.

Republican Attorneys General [are] Planning to Mount Legal Challenges to [the] Biden Agenda.  It appears President Joe Biden's effort to ram his agenda through using executive orders isn't going to go unchallenged.  According to a recent report, Republican attorneys general in various states are preparing to launch a series of legal challenges against the White House to oppose many of the numerous executive orders the president has issued.

My Predictions for Biden's Probably Truncated Presidency.  There's a reason candidate Biden barely campaigned and almost never spoke extemporaneously, and that President Biden has only given one highly cringy press conference so far, a record low in the modern era.  Biden, 78, is the oldest man to have taken the oath of office.  And while a lot of 78-year-olds are physically vigorous and mentally sharp, Biden isn't one of them.  Biden's cabal of handlers from former President Obama's era are doing their best to hide their fading commander-in-chief and his obvious-to-all-non-Democrats infirmities, running the country from behind the scenes.  His media allies have sacrificed their last vestige of dignity in their heroic support for the Dems' ridiculous "nothing to see here" narrative.  As professional gamblers evaluate the president's health and political performance, posted odds that he'll remain in office through Jan. 19, 2025 — when he'll be 82 — have already plunged from 75% to 60%. My guess is that no one is more aware of Biden's condition than Democratic National Committee bosses.  They would like Biden to hang on until after the November 2022 midterm elections and then step aside in order to allow Vice President Kamala Harris a year of incumbency, which could bolster her case for 2024.

Biden Lapses Into Nonsense Mid Speech, Refers to 'Merfin and Ruthers'.  Tongue-tied President Joe Biden appeared to botch the name of his own attorney general Thursday and offered a word salad in lieu of a coherent statement as he continued his war on the fundamentals of communication.  Is Biden suffering from a cognitive decline?  We don't know for sure, but all the anecdotal evidence clearly supports a theory that something isn't right with the 78-year-old.  He has built a career on gaffing things up, but in recent years — since he left the White House in 2016 after serving for eight years as vice president — things seem to have taken a turn for the worse.

High living Hunter Biden blew tens of thousands on prostitutes, drugs and luxury cars, was desperate to avoid jail for $320k in unpaid taxes.  Leaked emails reveal how Hunter Biden was desperate to avoid jail for unpaid taxes — after blowing hundreds of thousands of dollars on luxury cars, prostitutes, drugs and designer clothing.  The bombshell cache of 103,000 text messages, 154,000 emails, more than 2,000 photos and dozens of videos from Hunter's laptop and authenticated by experts retained by are packed with revelations conveniently missing from his newly published memoir, Beautiful Things.  The pictures, documents, emails and texts reveal that despite reporting more than $6 million of income from 2013 to 2016, Hunter's bacchanalian expenses left him with huge debts to credit card companies and the tax man.

The Millionaire Bidens' Incredible White Privilege.  Poor Joe Biden.  For nearly five decades, Mr. Biden has been getting everything wrong in Washington.  He has always been a low-watt thinker with verbal dysentery.  But harmless.  Which is why he wound up as vice president in the first place — White Privilege Joe.  Poor guy, he is so slow he was the last person to realize that nobody took him seriously. [...] But if you are dumb enough, extravagantly ineffective, and willing to blow with any wind, you can make yourself quite a living in Washington.  Joe Biden might have arrived in Washington a half-century ago as "Middle-Class Joe."  But he is "Millionaire Joe" today.  So is his dirtbag junkie son, Hunter.

Fellow Coloradans, let's boycott the boycotters.  Joe Biden lied.  And then he lied about lying.  And then his press secretary lied about him lying about lying. [...] What Biden lied about this time was the Georgia voting law.  He said it was a Jim Crow law.  He said it closed the polls at 5 pm, right as people got off work, and he objected to the requirement for a photo ID. He said it discriminates against black voters, as if white voters don't work till 5 pm and black voters don't have ID's.  It was all a lie.  The law doesn't close the polls at 5 pm at all.  In fact, it codifies what was earlier just an informal and inconsistent tradition of keeping them open till 7 pm in most counties.  As for photo ID's, that requirement has consistently been upheld by the Supreme Court even back in the days that the Court leaned left.  In any event, studies show that photo ID requirements do not in fact impact blacks disproportionately.  The only persons disproportionately impacted by photo ID laws are voters who aren't who they say they are.  Democrats know that such criminals overwhelmingly vote Democrat.

This is a polite way to say Joe Biden is a liar:
Biden White House blurs the line to advance goals.  President Joe Biden once fumbled the "truth over lies" line in his campaign stump speech, but now his administration keeps blurring the line between fact and political spin.  The White House likes to tout its belief in facts and science, an indirect rebuke of what critics condemn as four years of anti-intellectualism under former President Donald Trump.  Operation Warp Speed's vaccine development accomplishments aside, the Biden administration is increasingly shading black and white facts with politics, undermining the president's stated aim of rebuilding trust in government.

Biden's Chamber of Confected Hatreds.  Meanwhile, Joe Biden declares that the country is afflicted by "systemic racism," though he knows this to be false.  He declared the attack on the Capitol on January 6 was "white supremacist" as was the conduct of the Capitol police on that occasion, another falsehood.  He regularly declares an "existential crisis" over climate change, for which there is not a shred of real evidence either.  The president says that if everyone remains masked and socially distant for another three months, they may be able to have a couple of family members over for a hotdog on July 4.  There is not the slightest excuse for waiting until then.

You Can't Ignore Physics, Joe.  [Scroll down]  But Biden's vision of a passenger aircraft that can "traverse the world in about an hour, travel 21,000 miles an hour" is a strong argument for mandatory drug testing in the White House.  The fastest jet in the world is the SR-71 Blackbird, perhaps the most famous spy plane in the world, and it travels at 2,100 mph.  It is hard for us laymen to grasp the engineering challenges of designing something to fly that fast and keeping it functioning at that speed. [...] Biden is envisioning a commercial airliner that will travel ten times faster than the current fastest jet in the world.  He might as well have promised warp speed, a hyperdrive, or teleportation.  It goes well with his promise to cure cancer if elected president.

Forensic Experts Prove Hunter Biden's Laptop Exists and Belonged to Him, Media Lied Again.  As many of you know by now, Hunter Biden released his "Tell-all" memoir book entitled "Beautiful Things" on Tuesday [4/6/2021].  However an Exclusive Bombshell from The Daily Mail shows that he left out virtually everything from his life, and the book is a complete farce.

'He Knows It's His': Lawyer For Computer Shop Owner Rebuts Hunter Biden's Claims About Mystery Laptop.  A lawyer for John Paul Mac Isaac disputed Hunter Biden's recent comments about a mystery laptop he allegedly left at the computer repairman's store in 2019.  "There's no doubt that he knows it's his and that he's that one that dropped it off," Brian Della Rocca, a lawyer for Isaac, said in a podcast interview with Just the News.  Della Rocca was responding to Biden's remarks in an interview with CBS News in which the president's son said he did not leave his computer at Isaac's shop, as the computer technician has claimed.  Biden suggested that the laptop may have been stolen from him or that his emails were hacked, possibly by Russian intelligence operatives.  "There could be a laptop out there that was stolen from me, it could be that I was hacked, it could be that it was Russian intelligence," said Biden.

Jen Psaki Admits Biden Gets Instructions from Obama.  Perhaps the most consistent question about the installed dementia patient occupying the oval office, is about who actually is planning the policy, scheduling the implementation and giving Biden his instructions after his breakfast pudding.  For those who have followed politics closely, the answer has always been obvious:  Barack Obama and the Chicago crew.  JoeBama is not a meme, nor is it a snarky slap at the current White House occupant, it is a reality.  Barack Obama and his ideologues (who took over the DNC) are now completely in control over the leftist policy execution. [...] Today [4/8/2021], White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki, the former spokesperson for Obama's State Department, essentially admitted that Obama's network was in charge, and Biden receives his instructions from the crew.  [Video clip]

Hunter Biden jokes that keeping his pants on was a 'problem' when he was taking crack and continues to claim he doesn't know if laptop is his.  Hunter Biden has joked that 'pants were the problem' while he was on crack, during an interview with Jimmy Kimmel to promote his new memoir on Thursday night [4/8/2021].  Biden also doubled down on his claim that he does not know if the infamous abandoned laptop belongs to him - despite it being verified by top forensics experts for  The President's son insisted that he does not know if the laptop was his because he was so detached from reality while on drugs - and went on to say that the scandal around the computer is a 'red herring'.

The Dirty Secrets on Hunter Biden's Laptop Have Been Revealed.  [Scroll down]  According to text messages from 2019, Hunter begged his father to run for president.  Not because the country needed him, or because he was the most likely candidate to win... Hunter begged Joe to run to salvage Hunter's own reputation.  But that revelation is small beans compared to the one about Hunter repeatedly avoiding police action against him, due to his regular run-ins with drug dealers and prostitutes.  Hunter's illegal activities would normally have resulted in criminal charges or an investigation, including drug trafficking and prostitution.

All this could have been widely publicized before the 2020 election, if the news media had been inclined to do its job.
What Wasn't in Hunter Biden's book.  Hunter Biden's 'tell-all' autobiography promised the unvarnished story of his struggles with drugs, family turmoil and his controversial love life.  But there were many shocking details of his debauched life that the president's son chose not to share with readers, including details of his fragile relationship with his father. [...] The bombshell cache of 103,000 text messages, 154,000 emails, more than 2,000 photos and dozens of videos are packed with revelations conveniently missing from the memoir, including:
  •   How he begged his father to run for president in 2019 to salvage Hunter's own reputation
  •   How he repeatedly dodged police action against him, despite constantly dealing with drug pushers and prostitutes and having multiple run-ins with law enforcement
  •   Hunter was guarded by a Secret Service agent while on a 2018 drug and prostitute binge in Hollywood, despite not being entitled to protection at the time and amid denials from the federal agency
  •   Joe Biden was afraid his text conversations with Hunter were being hacked even as they discussed his White House bid
  •   How Hunter's laptop is brimming with evidence of apparent criminal activity by Hunter and his associates including drug trafficking and prostitution

Joe Biden's Riff on Trains Was Full of Complete Nonsense.  I'll give you a fair warning.  If you are triggered by politicians spewing absolute nonsense, there's a fair deal of that headed your way if you keep reading, and you'll be less than shocked to learn that Joe Biden is the one doing the spewing.  With the "infrastructure" bill taking center stage now as the White House's top priority, the push for trains to become more prominent in America is in full swing.  It doesn't matter that the country is far too massive to need a system of high-speed rail given that air travel costs far less.  But global warming and emissions and all that so you get the current, asinine obsession with making choo-choos great again.  Today [4/7/2021], Biden attempted to sell the idea, and things did not go well.

Anatomy of a Hunter Biden business deal involving Ukraine (It's not Burisma!)  In his new memoir, Hunter Biden declares there is a simple explanation for a life filled with addiction to drugs and alcohol.  "I have the capacity and tenacity to use to excess, and a single-minded unwillingness to quit," he writes.  "That makes addiction easy, rather than hard."  Unraveling his extensive deals with foreign characters — some with controversial histories — while his father was in government, however, is a more complex story.  And no other anecdote illustrates that better than Hunter Biden's brief engagement with a fugitive Ukrainian oligarch's team in 2015, one that began with discussions about lobbying his father's administration to make an indictment go away and ended with a separate $3 million deal and a handsome $275,000 transfer into a firm that routinely paid the younger Biden.  Following the money is a dizzying exercise, with multiple business firms and bank accounts and a discussion about one deal that ends with payment for another business opportunity.

China now dominates the world, thanks on large part to senile and corrupt Joe Biden.
State Department Backs Off US Boycotting Beijing Winter Olympics as China Threatens "Robust Response".  China has once again beat the US into submission.  The State Department backed off of talks of the US boycotting the Beijing Winter Olympics as China threatened a "robust" response.  State Department spokesman Ned Price on Tuesday said a boycott is something that the US wishes to discuss with our allies.  "It is something that we certainly wish to discuss," Price said, "A coordinated approach will not only be in our interest but also in the interest of our allies and partners."

Hunter Biden Is Going To Get Away With It.  We live in a time when justice is taking a vacation.  The Durham probe?  For naught or at least too late to matter.  Democrat election corruption?  Ignored.  Hunter Biden selling access to his father?  Par for the course in 2021.  And Hunter Biden is going to get away with it.  Just like all those who used government to try and stop Trump in 2016 and those who perpetrated election fraud in 2020, Biden will face no consequences for his actions.  Get used to it and stop waiting for justice.  It's not coming, not anytime soon if at all.  On Biden's story, FNC's Gregg Jarrett fills us in on the particulars.

Will [the] Spiraling Border Crisis Destroy Biden's Presidency?  t's not three months into a four-year term, but Joe Biden's presidency is already heading for the rocks.  Surging waves of immigrants have overwhelmed the U.S.' southern border.  With public anger growing, Biden now has been forced to tacitly recognize President Donald Trump's border success.  Just this week, Biden let it be known he's considering restarting Trump's border wall construction — just to "fill in" parts of it, his administration says.  Right.  In fact, it's desperation because the Biden-Democrat open border policy has been an epic disaster, one that could result in huge Democratic losses in 2022 and a lame-duck presidency for Biden.

The Editor says...
Today is April 8.  I will be very surprised if Joe Biden is still occupying the White House at the end of 2021, to say nothing of completing an entire term as President*.

More Vindication for Trump as Biden Admin Considers Resuming Border Wall Construction.  In what might be the most stunning admission that there's a crisis at the southern border of the United States, the Biden administration is considering resuming border wall construction.  According to a report from the Washington Times, Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas told department employees that while Biden had cut off funding for border wall construction, there's still "room to make decisions" to finish some "gaps in the wall."  "There are different projects that the chief of the Border Patrol has presented and the acting commissioner of CBP presented to me," Mayorkas said.  "The president has communicated quite clearly his decision that the emergency that triggered the devotion of DOD funds to the construction of the border wall is ended.  But that leaves room to make decisions as the administration, as part of the administration, in particular areas of the wall that need renovation, particular projects that need to be finished."

Biden adds stupidity to his lies about Georgia's voting laws.  If Biden were merely senile, I'd fear for America but perhaps summon up some sympathy for him.  But he's not merely senile.  He's a vicious, creepy, stupid man, and his nonstop attacks on Georgia are Exhibit A in the case against him.  In his latest pronouncements, not only did Biden continue to lie about the Georgia law, but he implied that the Masters Tournament should move from Augusta, Georgia, where it's been held since 1934, as if golf courses were fungible, not unique.

Biden backtracks, restores border wall contruction, claiming it's to 'plug holes'.  As a president, Joe Biden is a mess, always wrong on every foreign policy decision, as Bob Gates used to say.  One of his biggest, among many, is his hideous decision to halt construction of President Trump's border wall, which has since led to hundreds of thousands of illegals pouring in.  Being Incompetent Joe, he didn't see it coming.  Now, old Joe's got no choice but to backtrack. [...] All he had to do was check his urge to issue that executive order and find out what would happen, and listen to the findings.  He didn't do any of that.  Like a crazy old man, he just couldn't resist whipping out that pen and that phone.  With the backtrack, he now looks like a third-world clown dictator.  Hugo Chavez used to be like that.

Biden Admits He Has Not Confronted China About Pandemic Lies; Changes Tune On MLB Rhetoric.  Democrat President Joe Biden admitted on Tuesday that he has not confronted Chinese President Xi Jinping about China's lies during the pandemic.  The president also changed his tune as he talked about Major League Baseball pulling the All Star Game out of Georgia which followed his remarks last week that he would "strongly support" the league doing so.  While saying that he supports "whatever judgment they make," Biden expressed pity for the businesses that will be economically damaged as a result of MLB pulling out of the state.  "There's another side to it too, the other side to it too is when they in fact move out of Georgia, the people who need the help the most, people who are making hourly wages sometimes get hurt the most," Biden said.  "I think it's a very tough decision for a corporation to make or group to make.  But I respect them when they make that judgment."  Biden also fielded a question as he left the press conference on the issue of China and its lies during the coronavirus pandemic.

Hunter Biden Cements His Notoriety As "The King Of Cons".  In the pantheon of scammers, swindlers, and scoundrels Hunter Biden is a rock star.  He is a grifter extraordinaire — a shameless hustler who has established a lucrative career running a myriad of cons and capers.  Hunter made millions of dollars from foreign entities by leveraging the name "Biden."  Now he's running a new con by peddling a memoir that promises candor about his scandalous behavior.  Except that it doesn't really.  The truth about important events is scrupulously massaged or avoided altogether.

Joe Biden Isn't in Charge.  Who Is?  Everyone is familiar with the scenario wherein you are at a retail store and find yourself frustrated by a junior-level customer service employee who is giving you the runaround over some matter of store policy.  Once you've finally become fully exasperated by the exchange, you finally utter the words, "I want to speak to the manager!"  After some attempts to deflect, and an interminable wait, someone eventually comes to the front desk and says, "I'm the manager.  How can I help you?"  After Joe Biden's performance last Thursday, every American should be demanding to talk to the manager.  That's because while President Joe Biden's pathetic display during his "matinee" presser showed clearly that he is not in charge of our country, it also begged the obvious follow-up question not being asked by the 25 reporters in the room:  If Joe Biden isn't in charge of running our government, who is?

Joe Biden says, "getting vaccinated is a moral obligation."  It won't be long until he leaves out "moral"?
Donald Trump and Joe Biden's Easter Messages Reveal Everything You Need to Know About the Presidents.  Donald Trump and Joe Biden gave messages to Americans on Easter, the Christian religious holiday that celebrates the resurrection of Jesus Christ.  The 45th President of the United States gave the salutation "Happy Easter" and then decried that he lost the U.S. election. [...] Joe Biden, on the other hand, delivered an Easter Message that preached about the coronavirus, mentioning it 7 times, but failed to mention Jesus Christ even once.  “We share the sentiments of Pope Francis who said that getting vaccinated is a moral obligation, one that can save your life and the lives of others,” Biden said.

Hunter Biden has 'no recollection' of meeting stripper with whom he had a child.  Hunter Biden said he has "no recollection" of meeting a stripper who later gave birth to his child.  Writing in his memoir, "Beautiful Things," that will hit bookstores on Tuesday, President Biden's son describes years of drug and alcohol addiction and the numerous sexual encounters he had with women.  "It's why I would later challenge in court the woman in Arkansas who had a baby in 2018 and claimed the child was mine.  I had no recollection of our encounter.  That's how little connection I had with anyone.  I was a mess, but a mess I've taken responsibility for," he writes in the book.  The stripper, Lunden Alexis Roberts, was working in a DC strip club when she met Hunter, who had been going through "more than four years of active addiction."

Jill Biden's fishnet stockings are receiving mixed reactions.  Jill Biden turned heads on a flight back to the White House by sporting a pair of fishnet stockings — sparking debate online over whether the garment was first-lady material.  Biden, 69, received a mixed reaction after she was seen disembarking from the plane from California Thursday at Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland in the black floral fishnet tights, black heeled booties, leather skirt and a black blazer.  "Madonna called and wants her trashy look back, Doc," wrote a Twitter user.  Another added, "They might be expensive but she looks trashy as heck dressed like that.  What an embarrassment of 1st lady."

The Hunter and Jim Biden story
  •   Wasn't hacked material
  •   Wasn't Russian misinformation
  •   Is something people deserved to know before voting
  •   Big tech + corporate media tried to make sure that didn't happen
  •   And now they're going to gaslight you about all of it.

Hunter Biden Admits He Smoked Parmesan Cheese.  Hunter Biden confessed he was so addicted to crack that he smoked parmesan cheese because he thought it looked like the real deal.  President Biden's son opened up about his addiction in an interview with CBS News while plugging his new book, "Beautiful Things."  According to The New York Times, "the book is equal parts family saga, grief narrative and addict's howl."  "I spent more time on my hands and knees picking through rugs, smoking anything that remotely resembled crack cocaine — I probably smoked more parmesan cheese than anyone that you know, Tracy," Hunter said in the interview.  "I went one time for 13 days without sleeping, and smoking crack and drinking vodka throughout that entire time," he added.

Biden's Bipartisanship Lie Will Cost Dems the House.  When failed Democratic congressional candidate Rita Hart dropped her petition with the House Administration Committee to "investigate" the 2020 election in Iowa's Second Congressional District, it revealed far more than the outcome of an obscure Midwestern House race.  The querulous tone of her announcement suggested that the withdrawal wasn't voluntary.  A number of Democratic moderates had expressed reservations about overturning state-certified results and opening themselves up to charges of hypocrisy.  These representatives won their seats by pledging not to become mindless Myrmidons of the increasingly hyper-partisan House leadership, and they know that they will already have enough trouble surviving their next elections because of the president's broken promise to promote bipartisanship.

Biden Getting Together With Family For Easter, Despite Urging Against Gatherings Until July.  Rules for thee but not for me.  As many people are celebrating Easter today, Joe Biden had been urging against gatherings, saying in March that his goal would be for people to get together for "small family gatherings" perhaps by the Fourth of July to hold barbecues and normal celebrations. [...] But guess who's getting together with his family today at Camp David?  You got it, Joe Biden and his wife.  He left early on Friday for the retreat.  He wouldn't identify with whom he was getting together.  Apparently July Fourth is for the commoners.

Biden family values crawl out of the woodwork in Hunter memoir.  CBS asked a lot of softball questions of Joe Biden's ne'er-do-well son, Hunter, who was shilling a book for which he got a $2 million advance, and Hunter himself whitewashed all the important matters around the hard questions of his alleged tax evasion, multimillion-dollar no-show jobs with the Chinese and Ukrainian oligarchs, and cashy relationship with 'the Big Guy.'  But one thing came out in his skeezy memoirs and the information since was that he's a chip off the old block.  Like old pop, Hunter was reportedly "doing" his brother's wife, an accusation made today by the wife he shucked.

Will Joe Biden walk back these comments after son Hunter admits laptop 'could' be his?  In an interview clip released Friday by CBS News, Hunter Biden said that a laptop containing highly controversial materials first reported weeks ahead of the presidential election "could" be his, though his now-president father, Joe Biden, once dismissed it as "Russian disinformation."  "For real, I don't know," Hunter Biden told correspondent Tracy Smith when she asked him where the laptop came from during the interview for "CBS Sunday Morning."  Smith then asked if him if he thought the laptop "could" have belonged to him.  "Of course certainly," he said.  "It, it, there could be a laptop out there that was stolen from me.  It could be that I was hacked.  It could be that it was the — that it was Russian intelligence.  It could be that it was stolen from me."

Forget your phony laptop excuses, Hunter Biden.  Hunter Biden now is trying to deny that he dropped his infamous laptop off at a Delaware Mac Repair shop in 2019.  "You didn't drop off a laptop to be repaired, in Delaware?" he was asked in a softball interview Sunday [4/4/2021] on CBS, the same Democrat-aligned media conglomerate which paid him for the memoir he currently is promoting.  "No.  Not that I remember at all.  At all."  At least he acknowledged that the laptop "certainly" could be his. [...] Let us never forget that Big Tech and most of the media colluded to suppress a story which reflected badly on their preferred candidate less than three weeks before the 2020 presidential election.  It was always Hunter's laptop, and they knew it.  We have the receipts to show he dropped the MacBook off at a Wilmington repair shop on April 12, 2019.  There is his distinctive signature on the repair docket which tallies with signatures on his driver's license and other documents.  There is his personal cellphone number on the docket.

Hunter Biden 'cooperating completely' with federal investigators.  Hunter Biden says he is "cooperating completely" with a federal investigation into his tax affairs.  The 51-year-old son of President Joe Biden, who is on a book tour for his new memoir about his struggle with drug addiction, Beautiful Things, also said in an interview that aired on CBS on Sunday that he is "100% certain" he will be cleared of wrongdoing.  "All I can do is cooperate and trust in the process," Biden added.  In December, after Joe Biden won the 2020 presidential election, it was revealed that federal investigators were combing through Hunter Biden's financial information.

It doesn't get more shameless than Hunter Biden.  Hunter Biden has thrust himself back into the limelight.  At this point, you have to seriously question whether he's a masochist.  Or he just needs the money.  Could go either way.  Prince Biden began promoting his to-be-released memoir, "Beautiful Things," starting with an excerpt from the book recounting, in part, the attacks he faced from President Trump during the 2020 campaign.  "I became a proxy for Donald Trump's fear that he won't be reelected," Biden wrote.  "He pushed debunked conspiracy theories about work I did in Ukraine and China..."  Of all the things we've learned about Biden within the last year, "debunked conspiracy theories" are the least embarrassing.  But so long as he brought it up, what is he talking about?

Hunter Biden Says In Memoir He Wouldn't Take Burisma Job Again But Insists It Wasn't 'Unethical'.  Hunter Biden wrote in his new tell-all book that he does not regret taking a seat on the board of Burisma Holdings, but he would not do it again.  Biden was insistent that he had not done anything unethical in sitting on the board.  "Did I make a mistake by taking a seat on the board of a Ukrainian gas company?  No.  Did I display a lack of judgment?  No.  Would I do it again?  No.  I did nothing unethical," Biden said.  "Knowing all of that now:  No, I would not do it again.  I wouldn't take a seat on Burisma's board," he continued, citing former President Trump's frequent attacks and the harm he'd tried to inflict on his father's campaign.

The Editor says...
The harm that should have been done to Joe Biden's campaign, by the contents of Hunter Biden's laptop computer, would have been entirely self-inflicted.  President Trump attempted to let everyone know about this scandal, but was suppressed by social media and mainstream media outlets.

What body language study tells us about Joe, Kamala, and Juan Williams.  We're all spending good lifetime hours watching the likes of Democrat operatives: the three, President Joe Biden; V.P. Kamala Harris, pseudo-black personage who infuses every right-shoulder TV shot populated by Scranton Joe; and the longtime Fox TV cohost of The Five for umpteen years, Juan Williams.  All can start a conflagration in those not of the Democrat persuasion.  To watch them is to lose one's lunch. [...] Their body language gives us a clue as to how accurate or honest their public appearances are.  President Joe doesn't appear often, but when he does, it's usually to opine on maskery, stay-in-ery, don't-go-near-anyone-ery.  Joe rarely if ever answers a question yelled out from the peanut gallery of White House press corps stenographers.  If it's a question he can hear as he shuffles out on muffled feet, he'll grace the rabble assembled with a "no" or, rarer still, a "yes."

Report: Biden Quietly Hands Over At Least $60 Million To Palestinians.  The Biden Administration silently gave Palestine millions in financial aid, reversing Trump-era policies, according to the Associated Press (AP).  The administration announced on March 25 they would give $15 million to Palestinian communities in the West Bank and Gaza for pandemic purposes, according to ABC News.  The administration then alerted Congress on Friday that it would give Palestinians $75 million for economic support to be used to restore their "trust and goodwill" after Trump cut aid, according to the AP.  "Given the absence of USAID activity in recent years, engaging civil society actors will be critical to regaining trust and goodwill with Palestinian society," the notification sent to Congress said, according to the AP.

Hunter Biden:  Ukraine Laptop 'Could' Be His but Says It Was Possibly Hacked by Russians.  President Joe Biden's son Hunter has acknowledged a laptop computer with a slew of previously secret messages could be his but also suggested he was hacked by Russians.  "There could be a laptop out there that was stolen from me.  It could be that I was hacked.  It could be that it was the — that it was Russian intelligence," Hunter Biden told CBS in an interview clip released Friday [4/2/2021].  The laptop was dropped off in 2019 at a computer store in Delaware owned by John Paul Mac Isaac, who says Hunter Biden asked him to recover contents from the damaged machine.  An authorization allegedly signed by the younger Biden was submitted in a recent lawsuit filed by Mac Isaac against Twitter.  The computer contained explosive messages and emails between Hunter Biden regarding his various business dealings, which have taken place in countries such as Ukraine and China.

Quiet, everyone!  Our benevolent leader speaks!  All ri-i-i-ise!
Biden Tells Americans to Cower in Fear and Wear Masks So We Can "Have a More Normal July 4th".  Joe Biden on Friday once again told Americans to cower in fear and wear masks in order to be able to have barbecues and enjoy the 4th of July.  "If the American people continue to do their part — mask up, practice social distancing, we can have a more normal July 4th."  [Video clip]

Top 10 Moments of Joe Biden Foolishness (April Fools' Edition).  It's April Fools' Day, and what better way to pay tribute to stupidity than to consider the top ten foolish moments of our nation's top fool, President Joe Biden.  [#10] "Barack and I think it's a right to have 'badakathcare!'" — Well, who doesn't?  Of course we have a right to badakathcare.  At least he looked cool saying it with his shades on.  Originally it appeared likely Biden would make health care a primary talking point of the campaign, but he eventually put the issue on the back burner.  Perhaps his inability to talk intelligibly about the topic was the reason.  [Video clip]

Major Liability?  Biden's Dog Bites Another Employee After Returning From Delaware Seclusion.  I previously wrote about the historical and legal perspectives of a biting incident involving one of the presidential pets, Major.  Both Biden German Shepherds (Major and Champ) were previously whisked out of town.  They were then quietly brought back.  Now Major has bitten another person who reportedly required medical attention.  In the prior column, I noted that under tort law a dog is afforded (at most) "one free bite" before strict liability applies.  Major could now be treated as a known vicious animal for liability purposes.

Republican Sens. Demand Biden Admin Share Intelligence About Hunter's Shady Foreign Business Dealings.  Republican Sens. Chuck Grassley and Ron Johnson are asking the Biden administration to hand over intelligence documents concerning Hunter Biden's foreign business deals and his associates at a Chinese energy company who are suspected of ties to the communist regime.  "It's imperative that Congress better understand the relationship Ye Jianming, Gongwen Dong, and Patrick Ho had between and among themselves, with the communist Chinese government, CEFC China Energy, and their activities in the United States, including those relating to the Biden family," the letter concludes, asking for the documents by April 14.

Hunter Biden [...] admits Ukraine laptop 'could' be his but claims he was 'hacked by Russians'.  Hunter Biden has revealed his father staged an intervention to get him to give up drugs last year, during the Presidential election, in his first sit-down interview for months where he also admits the damaging laptop with details of his business dealings in Ukraine 'could' be his, but says he was 'hacked by Russians'.  Hunter did two interviews with CBS to promote his new memoir, Beautiful Things.  The first will air on Sunday morning, and the second will air on Monday morning.  The network teased a trailer for both on Friday morning.  It is the first time it is publicly known that the Biden family staged an intervention for Hunter.

Biden Is Unhappy That Baseball Fans Will Be Able to Enjoy Some Baseball.  You'd be hard-pressed to get Joe Biden to offer an update, opinion, or even a single fact about the border.  That's a huge mess.  It's his job for that not to be a huge mess.  The border is a national security issue.  He handed it off to Kamala Harris more than a week ago.  She laughed when the media asked if she was going to the border, then laughed at parents who want their kids back in school.  Laughing at problems has been Harris's chief public contribution to the administration so far.  Biden's chief contribution has been to make terrible decisions and get Americans to argue about them.  Unity!

Biden's Bait-and-Switch Presidency.  Joe Biden was elected as a moderate-left Democrat, but he is not governing as one.  He pledged repeatedly to work across party lines, but he is ramming through the biggest, most expensive progressive agenda in American history without any Republican votes.  He is almost certain to try it again with his next two spending proposals, the largest since Lyndon Johnson's Great Society programs.  As the White House pushes these mammoth bills with only Democratic votes, Americans are realizing they got a very different president from the one they bargained for, the one they were promised during the campaign.  What's unclear is whether they will recoil from this new reality.

GOP senators seek U.S. intel, FISA evidence on Chinese figures tied to Biden family.  The top Republicans on two influential Senate committees on Wednesday demanded the U.S. Justice Department and Office of the Director of National Intelligence turn over any intelligence and Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act evidence they possess about three Chinese figures reportedly tied to President Biden's family.  In the letter addressed to Director of National Intelligence Avril Haines and Attorney General Merrick Garland, Sens. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, and Ron Johnson, R-Wis., asked for "all intelligence records" including "all FISA-derived information" related to Ye Jianming, Gongwen Dong and Chi Ping Ho.  Grassley is the top Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee, while Johnson is the ranking member on the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations, one of Congress' most powerful investigative bodies.

The Coming Rebranding.  The "basement bunker" Biden was a shadow of the seasoned politician we watched float to the top of the primary field.  Though cued by a teleprompter we saw reflected in a framed picture, the veteran public speaker struggled for common words, sometimes losing his train of thought altogether. [...] More than once, Joe Biden 'said the quiet part out loud' — a tendency all too familiar to families dealing with dementia.  In October he boasted about "...the most extensive and inclusive voter fraud organization in the history of American politics." Did he mean "anti-voter fraud?" It makes no sense.  Democrats maintain that voter fraud is rare and irrelevant.  Why organize against it?  The "voter fraud organization" Biden spoke of was very real, as we would learn.  The truth had made its way through his deteriorating filter. [...] Cognitive decline can be delayed, but not reversed.  His long-postponed press conference, though entirely staged and scripted, was a grim reminder of that sad fact.

Biden Told a Lie So Big About New GA Election Law That Even The Washington Post Called Him Out.  Joe Biden recently told a lie so big about the new Georgia election laws that the far-left Washington Post called him out for it.  Washington Post Fact Checker Glenn Kessler knocked Biden for falsely claiming a new Georgia law "ends voting hours early," giving him its harshest rating of Four Pinocchios for spreading the misinformation.

Biden almost trips up Air Force One stairs, avoids falling this time.  President Joe Biden stumbled for a moment on the stairs of Air Force One Wednesday — but ultimately had a smoother climb than when he fell repeatedly while boarding the plane earlier this month.  Footage shows the coordination-challenged commander-in-chief carefully traversing the stairs before apparently nearly missing a step while leaving on a flight to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.  The 78-year-old president made the ascent while headed off to promote his $2 trillion infrastructure plan.  On March 19, Biden raised eyebrows when he tripped twice and then fell over as he tried to jog up the stairs of the idling aircraft at Joint Base Andrews.

AP Writes an Entire Story About Hunter Biden Without Mentioning the FBI Investigation.  In the glorious annals of journalism, this Associated Press headline deserves to be emblazoned on the walls of the Newseum, if the pathetic institution hadn't collapsed and evacuated its own building, as the perfect embodiment of modern journalism.  The AP is entitled to humiliate itself if it wants to.  But this is the same AP that instead of covering the Hunter Biden scandal during the election chose to launch an explainer spinning the revelations about him, and now offers up a promo for his memoir that avoids any mention of the issue.  In the 20 or so paragraphs about the son of the guy in the White House, the AP relentlessly promotes Hunter's narrative about drug addiction, pushes his memoir as hard as a crack dealer, but fails to mention the FBI investigation.

How Can Hunter Biden Say He 'Did Nothing Unethical' But 'Wouldn't Take The Seat' On Burisma Again?  President Joe Biden's son Hunter Biden claims in his memoir "Beautiful Things" releasing on April 6 that he never committed any wrongdoing "in our political environment" by taking a seat on the board of a Ukrainian energy company.  "I did nothing unethical, and have never been charged with wrongdoing," Biden writes.

Major Biden nips again, and folks wonder what CNN would do if Trump had a dog that kept biting people.  When it comes to the Biden White House, it's clear that you can't teach old dogs new tricks — and were not talking about 78-year-old President Joe Biden.  For the second time, first pet Major has been involved in a incident involving human flesh, and while there's no truth to rumors he was working toward getting his pound, the second incident came after the German shepherd was reportedly sent away to reeducation camp.  That is, if you consider Biden's Delaware home a reeducation center — after Major bit a Secret Service agent in the White House on March 8, he and Champ, the president's other German shepherd, were sent home only to return a couple of weeks later.

Joe Biden to Tax American Business at Higher Rate than Communist China.  President Joe Biden plans to propose a tax on American businesses at a higher corporate tax rate than Communist China charges American businesses.  Biden will travel to Pittsburgh Wednesday [3/31/2021] to present a 2.25 trillion dollar package that would, if passed into law, increase the corporate tax rate from 21 percent to 28 percent, outdoing Communist China's corporate tax rate of 25 percent, just after former President Trump lowered the tax from 35 percent to the current 21 percent.

Was this gas-guzzling trip really necessary?  Why is it necessary to travel to Pittsburgh to promote reckless spending?  What does Pittsburgh have to do with it?

"Why have elections if the whole thing is nothing but a show?"
President in Name Only.  The Praetorian Guard could make or break an emperor, so they had real power, but they existed outside the rest of the political structure.  The American Empire appears to have entered a similar period, in which it is not entirely clear who is in charge of the state.  This was made clear last week when Joe Biden held his first official press conference of his administration.  Biden was disoriented and slow in his responses, even though the questions were submitted in advance and he had prepared answers.  At one point he stopped pretending and just read a statement about North Korea off his sheet.  His struggle to do that underscored the fact that he is president in name only.  Now, this is not a revelation.  During the campaign it was clear that Biden was a shambling husk of a man.  The internet was full of hackneyed jokes about his campaign being "Weekend at Biden's" or operating out of a nursing home.  It was clear that while Biden was the candidate, he had no role in his campaign, other than to shuffle out on stage when told to by his handlers.  He was just a figurehead.

No presidency anymore.  The radical left did not steal the presidency — they eliminated it.  The Biden so-called press conference, a parody of itself, proved that.  While Biden had some moments in which he seemed lucid, he had many in which he could not conceal the fog that envelops his failing brain — not even with pre-approved non-questions from non-reporters and scripted responses.  Is this confused old guy the man who has his finger on the nuclear button?  Fortunately, he is not.  His handlers are well aware that he lapses in and (back) out of situational awareness, as the televised appearance made clear to everyone, even his supporters.  Biden, at times, cannot distinguish between a North American Aerospace Defense (NORAD) incoming-missile warning-screen, and an Xbox video game.  Joe Biden is not actually exercising the powers of the presidency.  He is not making any of the decisions.  He is not capable of doing either.  Who, then, is?

Joe Biden's Rule By Decree:  How Far Can He Go?  President Joe Biden's candidacy was built on the idea that he was an old, experienced, centrist in Washington, someone who could bring two sides together.  So far, with his penchant for issuing "executive orders" to fundamentally change America, he's governing precisely as a socialist dictator would.  Is that what Americans voted for? [...] He has power, and he plans to use it.  He's already issued more than 50 executive orders, including 22 reversals of previous Trump policies.  Even his aides have gotten in on the imperious act:  Last weekend one of Biden's public relations people physically interfered with Texas Sen. Ted Cruz's efforts to film the conditions of migrants at the U.S. border.  Is this the Soviet Union?  Biden's ready to do more — a lot more.

Biden will not throw first pitch at Nationals opening day.  President Biden will not throw the ceremonial first pitch on Thursday's opening day at Nationals Park, a team spokesperson confirmed.  "We look forward to welcoming President Biden to Nationals Park in the future," a team spokesperson told The Washington Post, which first reported the news.  A reason for why Biden will not throw the first pitch wasn't provided.  A team spokesperson told the Washington Times a decision on who will throw Thursday's first pitch will be released at a later time.

Biden hits the dishonesty jackpot with claims about Georgia voting law.  The Washington Post has awarded Joe Biden four Pinocchios (the max) for a patently false claim he made about the new Georgia law on voting.  Biden said the following during a press conference:  ["]What I'm worried about is how un-American this whole initiative is.  It's sick.  It's sick ... deciding that you're going to end voting at five o'clock when working people are just getting off work.["]  Two days later, he followed up with this official statement:  ["]Among the outrageous parts of this new state law, it ends voting hours early so working people can't cast their vote after their shift is over.["]  But the Georgia law does no such thing.  Biden, or whoever feeds him his material, is just making it up.

Hunter Biden blockbuster:  Memos detail quiet effort to assist indicted Ukrainian oligarch.  Hunter Biden and his business partner engaged in an effort to assist a fugitive Ukrainian oligarch indicted by his father's administration, an effort that briefly captured the FBI's attention and led one of the lawyers in the case to express concern that using the then-vice president's son might backfire, according to emails, text messages and interviews.  The effort by Hunter Biden and Devon Archer to assist Dmitri Firtash began in spring 2015 when they were contacted by one of the oligarch's associates, and an American lawyer for the oligarch was instructed to provide them an overview of the case, including desires to contact U.S. government officials.  Firtash, one of Ukraine's wealthiest businessmen, already had been indicted by the Obama-Biden administration more than a year earlier on corruption charges in Chicago, allegations that Firtash has long denied.

Biden earns 'Four Pinocchios' from Washington Post for false claim about Georgia voting law.  The Washington Post Fact Checker knocked President Biden on Tuesday for falsely claiming a new Georgia law "ends voting hours early," giving him its harshest rating of Four Pinocchios for spreading the misinformation.  Biden repeatedly claimed last week a law signed by Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp, R., would make it harder for working-class people to vote.

Bidens' dog Major involved in another biting incident.  The Bidens' dog Major has been involved in another biting incident that required medical attention, two people with knowledge of the incident tell CNN.  The incident, which involved a National Park Service employee, took place on the White House South Lawn on Monday afternoon [3/29/2021].  The employee was working at the time and needed to stop in order to receive treatment from the White House medical unit.  First lady Jill Biden's press secretary Michael LaRosa told CNN that Major is "still adjusting to his new surroundings."

Biden's dog Major bites ANOTHER government employee on White House grounds while out for a walk.  President Joe Biden's dog Major has bitten another employee at the White House, according to reports.  A National Park Service employee was taken to the White House Medical Unit for treatment after the German Shepherd 'nipped' him while out for a walk.  Jill Biden's press secretary Michael LaRosa told CNN:  'Yes, Major nipped someone on a walk.  'Out of an abundance of caution, the individual was seen by WHMU and then returned to work.'

Biden Owes His 'Popularity' to Trump's Success With COVID. Here's Why.  Joe Biden can't always speak in full, coherent sentences.  He has trouble with stairs.  Half the time, I'm not sure if he knows what office he holds, yet, he has a 53.4% average approval rating, according to RealClearPolitics. [...] Biden has a whopping 75% approval for COVID vaccine distribution.  It just so happens that's the very thing the Biden administration has been lying about repeatedly by claiming the Trump administration hadn't given them a vaccine distribution plan and saying they had to start from scratch.  Not only did Dr. Fauci dismiss that claim, but, according to Dr. Moncef Slaoui, the former head of Operation Warp Speed, the Biden administration is still using the same vaccine distribution model developed by Operation Warp Speed under President Trump.  Joe Biden's Department of Defense also doesn't dispute that the distribution plan is the same as it was under Trump.

Biden Has Some Advice for States Like Texas.  Earlier today [3/29/2021], Joe Biden blasted governors who had relaxed restrictions and/or mask mandates on the Wuhan coronavirus, asking that they reinstate their mandates.  Even though he was reading, he seemed tired and rambling.  [Video clip]  Here, he forgets how long he's been in office and treats that time as though that's the only period of time in which we have been fighting the virus, under him.  [Video clip]  What does he say about those states who have reopened like Texas and dropped any government mandated restrictions?  He says that states should pause their re-opening efforts.  [Video clip]  o basically he would have us masked and locked down in perpetuity?  He's been vaccinated and can't transmit the virus.  He's still walking around with two masks on (and not following the guidelines touching his face and touching the inside of his masks).

Republican Senators Demand To Know Secret Service Involvement In Hunter Biden Gun Scandal.  Two Republican lawmakers sent a letter to the head of Secret Service on Thursday [3/25/2021] demanding records of the agency's involvement in the case of Hunter Biden's missing firearm in late 2018, a story Politico reported last week.  "In light of the recent press report, please provide all records relating to your agency's involvement in the alleged October 2018 incident with respect to Hunter Biden's firearm no later than April 8, 2021," wrote GOP Sens. Chuck Grassley of Iowa and Ron Johnson of Wisconsin on March 25.  The report to which the senators are referring is a bizarre story about a .38 revolver Hunter Biden purchased in late 2018 that Hallie Biden, Hunter's love interest and the wife of his late brother Beau Biden, says she disposed of in a trash can behind a grocery store and across from a school after having discovered the firearm while rifling through Hunter's truck over her "suspicions" of him.

Joe Biden Just Can't Bring Himself to Bring U.S. Troops Home.  Robert Gates served as Secretary of Defense for presidents of both parties.  He reports that as a vice president and a senator, Joe Biden was wrong on just about every single major foreign policy issue in the last four decades.  Last week Joe Biden, now president, opined that the May 1 deadline to withdraw all U.S. troops from Afghanistan would be "hard to meet."  Since Donald Trump had largely overseen military force rebuilding after the indifferent defense oversight of Barack Obama, such president-speak actually means "I'm not going to do it."

Biden Responds to Word That Trump Might Go to the Border With Classic Deflection.  As we previously reported, President Donald Trump said this weekend that he might go to the border since Joe Biden didn't seem to be addressing the border crisis; that he's been asked by folks in the CBP and ICE to go to the border.  Biden hasn't gone to the border and, in the past, when asked if he would go, has just blown off the question without any direct responses, downplaying the whole thing.  Today [3/28/2021], he was asked about Trump's remarks about going to the border — did he think that Trump going would be productive, and did he, Biden, have any thoughts on when he might go to the border?  Biden's response was classic Biden — deflection that actually says nothing.

Raging Joe Biden won't say if he'll go to the border & snaps 'I don't care what the other guy does' when asked about Trump's visit.  Joe Biden raged at reporters on Sunday afternoon [3/28/2021] when he was asked about Donald Trump's upcoming visit to the border, snapping:  "I don't care."  The president said he wasn't interested in "what the other guy does" as he disembarked Air Force One today. [...] The president was quizzed by reporters as he disembarked Air Force One at St Andrews [sic!] Joint Air Base in Maryland.

Eric Trump says he'd be in jail for allegedly lying like Hunter Biden over gun scandal.  Eric Trump said if he or his older brother, Don Jr., lied on a federal form as Hunter Biden allegedly did in paperwork to buy a pistol — which is the subject of a controversial incident involving the Secret Service — they would be jailed for life.  Eric Trump was asked by Fox host Maria Bartiromo on "Sunday Morning Futures" [3/28/2021] about the allegations swirling around President Biden's son and the gun that turned up missing in 2018 — and his involvement in business dealings in China and Ukraine, as reported by The [New York] Post last October.  "Obviously, Hunter is a troubled kid, right?  There's no question about that.  But if that was Don or I, or if that was anybody in the Trump family, and we lied on a federal form, we'd be in jail for the rest of our lives.  We really would be," former President Donald Trump's son told Bartiromo.

Biden's Two-Front War.  The old progressive world of Barack Obama, of which Biden was part, is no more.  In 2012, Obama ridiculed then-Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney for suggesting that foreign threats were back.  "The 1980s, they're now calling to ask for their foreign policy back because, you know, the Cold War's been over for 20 years," Obama replied.  In 2021, not only is Russia a threat but China is making a play for the top spot.  Obama's world was probably already over in 2012 but Biden promised his constituency a return to the past.  "Let me try again," was the progressive cry in the face of the populist revolt.  There is no alternative to "we just need to try harder" because without that past they really have no future.  And so they will try again.

News Flash:  Joe Biden plans a second term; But then, so did Trump.  Barely four percent of the way into his first presidential term, Joe Biden has decided he'll have a second term.  See if that sticky note stays up on your fridge door.  Donald Trump had similar plans for a second 1,461-day White House residency.  In fact[,] Trump filed second-election paperwork on Inauguration Day of his first term.  As most of us have since noticed, it didn't work out that way because — guess what? — it's not up to a president whether he gets a callback.  Eventually, all presidents talk about second terms, if only to avoid the early onset of lame-duckness.  Most presidents who try do get second election wins; only Jimmy Carter, Herbert Hoover, and George H.W. Bush failed in the last century.

Are Democrats Ready to Bet Their Party's Future on a Roaring Economy in the Fall of 2022?  [Scroll down]  But what really caught my attention was the idea that the true believer partisans around Dementia Joe have him believing he is this generation's FDR or LBJ.  The moment has chosen him to go "All In" on the Democrat Party agenda in all its radical glory.  But as [Matthew] Continetti's piece points out, some of the prominent voices on the left making this claim in 2021 were making the same claim in 2009 when the anointed one was newly-elected Barack Obama who came into office after a decisive victory over John McCain, and bringing with him huge majorities in the House and Senate by modern, post-Reagan standards. [...] This is where Dementia Joe benefits the Democrat Party — and shows how delusional he really is in his current state.  It's easy to persuade him in the fog of his advancing years that he's poised to be a historical figure of real consequence when, in fact, he's probably the person least equipped to lead the United States since Jimmy Carter.

A Mentally Deficient Joe Biden Completely Botches Georgia Election Law.  Joe Biden isn't with it, and that includes his breakdowns of major pieces of legislation.  One such new law involved a series of election reforms in the State of Georgia.  You'll probably recall the absolute chaos that was the vote-counting in that state during the last election, with most of that chaos happening in heavily blue areas around Atlanta.  Regardless, because Democrats need to make political hay out of everything, they've decided to relentlessly lie about the law.

Penalties for Lying on ATF Background Check Form — As Hunter Biden Allegedly Did Include Fines, Jail Time.  Amid reports Hunter Biden may have given false information on an ATF background check form, it is notable that the punishment for false answers on that form includes fines up to $250,000 and/or ten years of imprisonment.  ATF Form 4473 is the background check each would-be gun buyer fills out upon trying to buy a gun at retail.  A Federal Firearms License (FFL) holder then calls the FBI and relays the information from the form, receiving the all-clear to sell the gun or a rejection, which means the gun cannot be sold to the would-be buyer.  A third option is that the FBI can alert the FFL holder that it will extend the background check another three business days to give FBI reviewers additional time to check criminal records.

The Editor says...
The Democrats constantly harp about gun control loopholes, background checks for everyone, etc.  If Hunter Biden falsified his paperwork, shouldn't he be in jail?

Can the GOP stop Democrats from trashing the country?  Kamala Harris calls foreign leaders on Biden's behalf.  The White House has instructed the media that going forward, they are to refer to the Biden-Harris administration.  Jill Biden does more than finish Joe's sentences for him:  Biden reportedly consults with and relies on his wife to a larger degree than any president since Woodrow Wilson, whose wife Edith effectively took over after Woodrow suffered a debilitating stroke in 1919.  There were reports in February that several Democrats wished to deprive Biden of sole authority over the nuclear codes.  Do we now have a Committee for Commander in Chief?  Behind the scenes, Susan Rice, with the Pelosi/Schumer tag team out front, wields executive power that should rightly reside with the president.

Parallels between Biden's border policy and Cuomo's nursing home scandal.  Some friends of mine have been making interesting comparisons of the parallels between the completely unnecessary crises created by President Biden (at the border) and New York Governor Andrew Cuomo. [...]
Spreading COVID
  •   Biden requires CBP to allow COVID positive illegal migrants into our country and is spreading them across the country
  •   Cuomo sent COVID-positive elders into nursing homes, killing almost 15,000 vulnerable seniors there
Predictability of a self-created crisis
  •   The Biden border crisis was not only predictable but he was warned about what would happen
  •   Cuomo was warned by doctors who work in nursing homes about the risks to the other residents
  •   Biden is refusing to allow the media and American people to see the conditions in which illegal immigrants are held, especially children, and has delayed releasing the numbers of illegals allowed entry or not
  •   Cuomo notoriously and probably illegally covered up the number of nursing home deaths
Refusing to use Trump-provided solutions
  •   Biden abandoned Trump's successful border security arrangements with Mexico, his safe third country agreements with Guatemala, El Salvador, and Honduras to apply for asylum in their home countries, and ended border wall construction
  •   Cuomo didn't take advantage of the Federal assistance in creating hospital facilities in the Javits Center and the USNS Comfort hospital ship
Lack of preparation
  •   Biden issued executive orders on the border without being prepared in terms of personnel, procedures, or facilities to deal with their consequences
  •   Cuomo left nursing homes being unprepared and unequipped in terms of personnel, procedures, and facilities to isolate those admitted with COVID or otherwise protect the other residents
Family separation
  •   Biden encouraged family separations by encouraging unaccompanied minors
  •   Cuomo caused permanent family separations with elders' deaths while isolated from their family in long-term care facilities

President Biden's Border Crisis Borders on Treason.  Once again, America has an illegal immigration crisis on its hands, and there's only one person to blame:  President Biden. [...] According to U.S. Customs and Border Protection, federal authorities are encountering an average of nearly 600 unaccompanied migrant children per day — up from 313 children a day last month.  In 2019, barely 200 unaccompanied migrant children were crossing the border daily on average — a more than twofold increase between the Trump and Biden administrations.  Southwest border crossings are now on pace for the highest levels in two decades.  It gets even worse.  Under the Biden administration, Border Patrol agents are now considering releasing illegal immigrants who claim asylum without issuing a "Notice to Appear."  In other words, illegal immigrants may depart custody without a court date.  Put another way, they are invading the United States without repercussions.  All the while, caravans of illegal immigrants continue to make their way to the southern border, overwhelming federal authorities who are desperate for any semblance of help from President Biden.

The Case for Prosecuting Hunter Biden.  Charles C. W. Cooke had a post this week that said everything that ought to be said about why it would be fitting to prosecute Hunter Biden's apparent making of a false statement on the required firearms application form.  I want to add a few points about prosecutorial discretion, the potential of an additional gun crime, and our two-tiered justice system.  The Politico story Charlie cites stresses that prosecutions arising out of false statements on Form 4473 are rare.  As Charlie rightly observes, that in itself is a problem (a point Kevin D. Williamson also made a few days ago).  Still, it is worth widening the lens beyond the narrow false-statements provision in the gun laws because the government actually prosecutes false statements all the time.  There is a general false-statements statute (Section 1001 of the penal code) which can be applied any time someone makes a false statement, including a material omission, to some branch, department, or agency of the federal government.  Then there are false statements charges that apply to particular subject-matter areas, such as firearms or taxes.

The Gun Background Check Form Where Hunter Biden Claimed He Wasn't Using Drugs.  Hunter Biden was the subject of a strange missing firearm case in 2018 after Hallie Biden, the wife of his late brother and subsequently Hunter's girlfriend, tossed it into a trash can behind a grocery store near a high school, according to a strange new report from Politico.  It appears Hunter, the son of President Joe Biden, might have lied on the federal forms he filled out to purchase the gun a few months prior, forms The Federalist has now obtained.  Hunter answered "no" to a question on the Firearms Transaction Record asking whether he was an "unlawful user of, or addicted to, marijuana or any depressant, stimulant, narcotic drug, or any other controlled substance."  See question 11.e on the form below:  [Photos]

Sources: Secret Service inserted itself into case of Hunter Biden's gun.  On Oct. 23, 2018, President Joe Biden's son Hunter and daughter in law Hallie were involved in a bizarre incident in which Hallie took Hunter's gun and threw it in a trash can behind a grocery store, only to return later to find it gone.  Delaware police began investigating, concerned that the trash can was across from a high school and that the missing gun could be used in a crime, according to law enforcement officials and a copy of the police report obtained by POLITICO.  But a curious thing happened at the time:  Secret Service agents approached the owner of the store where Hunter bought the gun and asked to take the paperwork involving the sale, according to two people, one of whom has firsthand knowledge of the episode and the other was briefed by a Secret Service agent after the fact.

Did the Secret Service attempt to cover up a gun incident with Hunter Biden?  Anyone surprised to read that Hunter Biden, the drug-addled princeling son of Cheatin' Joe Biden at the White House, had a gun he shouldn't have had?  Turns out he did, and worse still, the Secret Service apparently tried to cover for him.  That's the news from a good investigative report from Tara Palmeri and Ben Schrekinger of Politico yesterday.

Hunter Biden's Texts Confirm Gun Was Taken, Left In Dumpster — 'Police, FBI, Secret Service Came On Scene'.  Today [3/26/2021] The National Pulse is publishing a full, unedited, long text message from Hunter Biden, son of the President of the United States, wherein Biden appears to admit the recent stories about his gun being taken and left in a dumpster near a school.  The following, near-2500 word text message, is between Hunter Biden and Hallie (his brother Beau's widow) Biden's sister Liz.  We have highlighted the key parts as they related to alleged criminality and the latest stories in the news.  We have not edited the text.  We have confirmed the phone numbers belong to Hunter Biden and Liz Secundy.

Why Did The Secret Service Get Involved In A Gun Case Involving Hunter Biden In 2018?  What on earth was the Secret Service doing intervening in a gun investigation involving an ex-vice president's ne'er-do-well son?  To set the stage, in 2018 Hunter's then-girlfriend Hallie discovered a .38 pistol in his truck and, for reasons that are unclear, threw it in the trash behind a store called Janssen's.  When she went to retrieve it later, the gun was gone.  Which is bad under any circumstances but really bad in this case considering Janssen's is located across the street from a high school.  Delaware state cops were called in to investigate.  And then, mysteriously, the Secret Service showed up to the gun store where Hunter had bought the weapon: [...]

Report: Secret Service Tried to Hide Hunter Biden Gun Purchase.  The Secret Service reportedly interceded two years ago on behalf of President Joe Biden's son, Hunter, in an alleged attempt to quash evidence of a gun purchase after the revolver vanished.  Agents tried to obtain the paperwork for the gun's sale to Hunter Biden from the store where he bought it, however, the owner refused to hand over the documents, according to two sources who spoke to Politico.  The report surfaced on the day President Biden was scheduled to hold his first solo press conference since taking office in January.  The Secret Service said it had no record of agents investigating the incident, and the president, not under protection at that time, said through a spokesperson he had no knowledge of Secret Service involvement, according to Politico.

Migrant surge:  Biden appoints Kamala Harris to come to his rescue.  Is there anyone more unfit for the job of "point person" or "leading diplomatic efforts" during the current migrant border surge than Vice President Kamala Harris?  It's an absolutely certain failure.  Naming Harris the "point person" on the Biden-created border surge such a bad idea that one almost wonders if Joe Biden did it on purpose.  After all, as the Sydney Morning Post notes in its headline:  "'It will not be easy:'  Biden hands Kamala Harris problem he couldn't fix."  The already failed Biden policy that triggered this current border surge is now a leading issue with the public that's eating into Biden's poll numbers.  According to a Hill-HarrisX survey, a "large majority" (76%) consider the illegal alien surge "a crisis."  A Gallup poll reports that 42 million would-be migrants from Latin America alone want entry.  A Politico/Morning Consult poll conducted in early February found that of Biden's seven least popular executive orders, five were immigration-related.

Secret Service intervened in 2018 police investigation when Hunter Biden's then girlfriend — Hallie — lost his gun after tossing it in a grocery store trash can.  The Secret Service tried to intervene in a police investigation in 2018 after Hunter Biden's then-girlfriend, his brother's widow Hallie, threw a gun she'd found in his car into a grocery store trash can because she thought he was going to kill himself with it.  The bizarre incident was revealed by Politico on Thursday [3/25/2021].  Hallie had been searching Hunter's truck because she had 'suspicions'.  She found a .38 revolver then drove to the Janssen's Market, a grocery store in Wilmington, where she threw the gun away.

Why Is Biden Creating His Own Crises?  Our mainstream media largely ignored it, the world media did not.  Ascending the stairs of Air Force One on Friday, to fly to Georgia, President Joe Biden slipped and stumbled.  Getting up, he slipped again and then fell.  The scene was jolting and disquieting.  Adversaries abroad will use it as a metaphor for the decline of the last superpower to emerge from the Cold War.  And while our major media may scoff at it, there is talk all over this town about what appears to be the visibly declining physical and mental capacity of this oldest of American presidents at 78.

Biden Unhinged:  Calls Attempts To Stop Election Fraud 'Sick' And 'Un-American'.  "Un-American."  "Sick."  "Despicable."  What got President Joe Biden in such a lather?  Was it the children packed liked sardines at border detention facilities?  The recent mass shootings?  China's human rights abuses?  Nope.  Biden flew off the handle over the fact that several states are taking steps to reform their election laws in ways he doesn't like.  "What I'm worried about is how un-American this whole initiative is.  It's sick," he said.  "It's sick ... deciding in some states that you can't bring water to people standing in line waiting to vote.  Deciding you're going to end voting at five o'clock when working people are just getting off work.  Deciding that there will be no absentee ballots under the most rigid circumstances."  "The Republican voters I know find this despicable," he added later.  "Republican voters."

Who's Actually Running This Thing?  No one believes that Biden is actually president.  Forget for a moment the questions about the election itself, and focus on the man:  Biden can't speak coherently, can't remember the names of his cabinet members, can't be trusted to give a live press conference.  He says he's willing to take questions and they turn his feed off.  So he's not in charge.  He's not running the show.  He's not president.  Who is?  The American press corps would like to think that it is they; which is why they're willing to go along with the cover-up.  They think they're the ones running the country.  And what exactly would be the difference between the current situation and an official government of the mainstream media?  This administration promises to enact, as if by media direction, every single woke prescription and pipe dream.

Joe Biden Bizarrely Claims That Dogs May Help Cure Cancer.  On Tuesday in Ohio during a brief appearance in front of the media, President Joe Biden claimed that dogs may help cure cancer.  The President was visiting the Ohio Cancer Center when he said that "dogs may help cure cancer."  "By the way.  Dogs may help cure cancer," Biden said as his speech began to slur.  "Not a joke.  Dogs are able to ... they're using dogs now ... to smell cancer in people's legs, in people's bodies, not a joke, it's a fascinating thing."

Unity Watch:  How Joe Biden's Ego and Insecurity Could Break a Deeply Divided Nation.  Joe Biden sold the American people a bill of goods in 2020.  He is not a moderate, and he will make his mark no matter what damage it does to our institutions, traditions, or country.  Biden is not even a Trojan horse for the radical Left.  He is leading the charge to transform the country. [...] Biden said he was not going to ban fracking, yet he did.  He also said he did not support eliminating the filibuster.  Yet, Biden may do all of this for no reason other than the ego bump of outdoing his former boss as a truly "transformational" president.

Biden 'has made the worst possible choice' by putting VP Harris in charge of the border crisis, claim GOP critics:
Administration ONLY allows cameras into under-capacity child migrant facility
.  Joe Biden has made 'about the worst possible choice' in putting Vice President Kamala Harris in charge of the border, the Republican governor of Arizona has said, as critics pointed to her previous statements as evidence of her being unfit for the role.  Biden on Wednesday [3/24/2021] announced that Harris was heading up his administration's approach to the U.S.-Mexico border, as they scrambled to get a grip on the increasingly fraught situation.  'She's leading the effort,' he said.  'The best thing to do is put someone when he or she speaks, they don't have to wonder about is that where the president is.

The Editor says...
I don't think Joe Biden is the one who put VP Harris in charge of anything.  I doubt that Joe Biden makes any substantial decisions any more.

The Unfit President.  President Joe Biden is functionally incapable of discharging his duties.  Robotically signing executive orders doesn't count.  In 1919, the stroke that waylaid Wilson was covered up.  Wilson wasn't paraded before the public.  Then, a measure of decorum was maintained in deference to citizens' sensibilities. [...] Not so with Biden.  The 46th president is trotted out before cameras often enough.  Almost inevitably, some aspect of his meager performances proves his dysfunction.  He fluffs lines, forgets, wanders off message, and, last Friday, stumbled so badly up the stairs to Air Force One that he was within an inch of serious injury.  Yet, however obvious Biden's fumbles and stumbles, his performances are gaslighted by administration flaks and the mainstream media.  Nothing to see, so move on.

Psaki says she never heard claim Hunter Biden got $3.5M from wife of ex-Moscow mayor.  White House press secretary Jen Psaki on Wednesday [3/24/2021] said that she's "not familiar" with a widely reported claim that a company associated with first son Hunter Biden received $3.5 million from the wife of Moscow's former mayor, after being asked by The [New York] Post what the payment was for.  "I'm not familiar with that claim.  It doesn't sound like it's backed up by a lot of evidence.  If you have evidence or specifics, I'm happy to discuss it further," Psaki said at her daily press briefing in response to a question from The Post.  Psaki said, referring to a report from the Senate Finance and Homeland Security committees that made the claim, "I'm not familiar with the report at all."  The alleged 2014 payment was frequently cited during the presidential campaign last year.  Then-President Donald Trump often raised it at public events including at campaign rallies and both presidential debates.

Psaki Brushes Off Reporter Asking Why Hunter Biden Received $3.5 Million From the Mayor of Moscow's Wife.  White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki on Wednesday [3/24/2021] was asked about the $3.5 million Hunter Biden received from the wife of the former mayor of Moscow.  Psaki brushed off the reporter's question as if it was total nonsense with no documents to back up the claims.  "I am not familiar with that claim.  It does not sound like it is backed up with a lot of evidence," she said.  Last September the Senate Finance and Homeland Security Committees released a devastating report on the Biden crime family and backed up their claims with documents from the Treasury Department.

New White House Directive Suggests They're Preparing for Kamala's Takeover.  There is no Biden administration.  Officially, it's the Biden-Harris administration, and federal agencies have been instructed to include Kamala Harris's name in a directive sent to all federal agencies from "a top White House communications team member."  "Please be sure to reference the current administration as the 'Biden-Harris Administration' in official public communications," read the directive, which was provided to Outspoken by "an employee of a federal government agency." [...] Ric Grenell, the former ambassador to Germany and former acting director of national intelligence, told Outspoken that Harris's elevated role is unsettling. [...] "The fact that the White House is instructing federal agencies to replace 'Biden' with 'Biden-Harris' after less than 60 days is indicative of the struggle Joe Biden is already having being President," Grenell added.  "This is a signal that he can't do the job alone."

Asked Wednesday how he is preparing for today's presser, Biden responded, 'What press conference?'  The common assumption on the right is that Joe Biden has been endlessly rehearsing answers to questions that will be asked by friendly reporters when President Biden holds his first-ever presidential press conference.  But his response to a question shouted out to him yesterday raises a couple of alternative possibilities to consider.  According to Peter Doocy, the White House correspondent for Fox News, "Somebody shouted out to Biden 'how are you getting ready for your press conference' and he said: 'What press conference?'" [...]  [Video clip]  I trust Doocy's account completely.  He has quickly distinguished himself in the briefings conducted by Jen Psaki with his tenacious and informed questioning.  His position as White House correspondent is a huge leap forward in his career, and he would be a fool to blow it by making up something like this.

Biden has a strange theory about women and men.  The mere fact that someone like Joe Biden has survived for 48 years in American politics, never mind that he's now occupying the Oval Office, is a testament to the overall degradation of American politics.  But while he was once merely a dishonest dullard and a political panderer, Biden has now departed entirely from reality.  His latest lunatic pronouncement is that women are not just the equal of men, they are better than men... in everything.

Joe is on the outer limits of feminism.
Biden: 'There's Not A Single Thing A Man Can Do That A Woman Can't Do As Well Or Better'.  President Joe Biden claimed during a White House event on Wednesday that there is nothing that a man can do that a woman can't do just as well or better.  Biden made the remarks in the South Court Auditorium at an event marking Equal Pay Day.  There's a lot to do, but together we can ensure that our daughters have all the same rights and opportunities as our sons," Biden said.  "And if we're able to do this, it'll be transformational for our nation.  That's the goal.  That's what this is all about.  That's what this team, all of you, are all about."  "Let me make one more point.  You know, I've told my daughters, granddaughters from the time they [were] old enough to understand what I was saying — and I mean it:  There's not a single thing a man can do that a woman can't do as well or better," Biden continued.  "Not a single thing."

If that were true, and it isn't, the NFL would have one unbeatable all-female team.

Hunter Biden had business ties with Xi Jinping himself, bombshell email reveals.  Stunning revelations about Hunter Biden and his family's notorious business dealings came to light in this week's episode of the John-Henry Westen Show during an interview with Jack Maxey, former co-host of Steve Bannon's War Room and one of the first people to go through the contents of Biden's alleged laptop last October.  Maxey revealed that Hunter Biden may have had business ties to China's Xi Jinping, based on emails from the laptop.  Correspondence also links the Bidens to possible Chinese espionage and illegal Beijing-backed business arrangements.  As the Biden family's China dealings went south, Hunter may have gone so far as to try to purposefully incriminate his own his father, now the President of the United States, Maxey said.

Pity poor Joe?  No.  [Scroll down]  Why did he do it?  Well, I have a theory:  Promises made but not yet kept.  VP Joe was in and out of China.  As we know, he took Hunter with him and they came back $1.5 billion richer.  The quid pro quo?  He made promises but didn't have enough time left to keep them all.  China trusted Joe, but 2016 was not Joe's turn, it was Hers.  China trusted Hillary.  Hillary let them down by not winning, and Trump's victory slowed the implementation of China's program for unquestioned regional dominance.  So, it was up to Joe — to run, to win, to serve, and to keep promises made to the Middle Kingdom that would probably terrify us if we knew.  And run he did, and win, for all intents and purposes, however fraught with deceit, he did.  Now he must serve.  What would those promises have been?  O'Biden was famous for standing America down.  Together their administration stood us down and funded Iranian expansionism and proxy terrorism.  Stood us down in confronting nuclear threats and ISIS.  Stood us down while Russia resurrected its imperialist designs starting with Crimea and Ukraine.

Joe Biden [is] Protected by [the] Same Guns He Wants to Ban After [the] Boulder Shooting.  President Joe Biden is protected by AR-15s and similar firearms while pushing to prohibit law-abiding Americans from owning those same guns.  Breitbart News reported that Biden responded to Monday's [3/22/2021] Boulder, Colorado, shooting by calling for Congress to pass an "assault weapons" ban that would include a ban on "high capacity" magazines.  Biden campaigned on such a ban in the lead-up to the 2020 election.  On August 12, 2019, MSNBC noted Biden expressing his commitment to banning "assault weapons" and making clear his belief that the Second Amendment is not "absolute."  At the same, Biden is protected 24/7 by Secret Service agents armed with AR-15s and similar rifles.

Psaki can't say if Biden saw doctor after tripping, falling on stairs.  White House press secretary Jen Psaki on Monday [3/22/2021] didn't give a direct answer to a question of if President Joe Biden saw a doctor after his Friday fall on the steps leading up to Air Force One, which she described as "tricky" to climb.  Psaki was pressed by a number of reporters at Monday's daily press briefing about whether the president saw a doctor after tripping twice and falling.  "First off, before I get to my other questions, just checking on the president.  He fell going up the stairs to Air Force One on Friday.  Is he doing OK?" a reporter asked her.  "He's 100% fine," Psaki replied.  "I don't know if you've been up those steps, they're a little tricky sometimes."

The Editor says...
[#1] She forgot to mention the 14 mph wind, which was their earlier (unbelievable) excuse for Biden's inability to stay on his feet.  [#2] If  the President  Mr. Biden is "100% fine, why can't we hear that from the White House doctor, who is probably less likely to lie about it?

Whenever You Disagree with Liberals, You're a Conspiracy Theorist.  Since the days of Joan Quigley, liberals have become attached to that phrase, "conspiracy theory."  Instead of answering questions, liberals like New York's Gov. Cuomo dismiss charges against him by calling them a "conspiracy."  So also with Hunter Biden.  There was enough evidence against him for the FBI to launch an investigation over a year ago.  But for some, just the mention of Hunter Biden amounts to a conspiracy theory.  In a Washington Post op-ed, one contributor attempts to rebut Glenn Greenwald's charges that the Chinese will blackmail Biden with what they know about Hunter's dealings.  Anything said about Chinese blackmail is deemed a conspiracy theory before the evidence is heard — and it never is.  Does anyone seriously believe that China will not attempt to blackmail Biden based on what they know about Hunter?  If you believe this, you must also believe that Xi Jinping is a "nice person" who has our interests at heart.

Joe Biden 'Will Always Tell You The Truth' (Except About COVID Vaccine, Economy, Border Crisis ...).  Almost exactly a year ago, then-candidate Joe Biden promised something that many apparently believed.  "I'll always tell you the truth," he said.  "This is the responsibility of a president.  That's what is owed the American people."  So how is Biden doing on that promise?  Not very well, when you consider his inability to tell the truth about the COVID-19 vaccine, the economic rebound already underway, or the border crisis.  Biden won't tell the truth about the first two because he'd have to credit President Donald Trump.  And he won't tell the truth about the border crisis because he himself is entirely to blame for it.  Biden has repeatedly claimed that when he got to the White House, there was no plan in place to distribute the vaccine and that the credit for the widespread distribution all belongs to him.

Jill Biden — the Edith Wilson of the new administration.  In the early days of America, presidential first ladies were hostesses at the White House.  In recent decades, they're goodwill ambassadors for feel-good causes.  One exception to this rule was Edith Wilson, who, in 1919, appointed herself as acting president when her husband, Woodrow Wilson, was felled by a stroke in the second-to-last year of his administration.  It's beginning to appear that Jill Biden, married to a decaying, increasing mentally incapacitated man, has chosen Edith as her role model. [...] Woodrow Wilson was a Democrat and a progressive.  He still supported the Confederacy; segregated the formerly integrated federal civil service; screened Birth of a Nation, the pro-KKK film, in the White House; and believed firmly in eugenics.  That is, he believed that Whites are a superior race and that people with darker complexions are inferior, with their inferiority increasing in direct proportion to their increased melanin.  (In other words, he was the mirror image of Kristen Clarke, Biden's choice to lead the Civil Rights division of the Department of Justice.)

A Detailed and Disturbing Overview:  Joe Biden Looks Seriously Unwell.  Something is very wrong with Joe Biden — mentally, medically, strategically[,] or all three.  Of course, he's long been known as a tone-deaf gaffe-meister.  Swearing on live mics.  Patronizing politically.  As head of administration transparency for Barack Obama, Biden closed the meetings.  Last year, as a candidate for the Democrat nomination, Joe spent much time looking lost in his own Delaware basement. [...] Before reducing personal appearances, Biden rambled, often without a point beyond being heard.  One time when Jill Biden was speaking and gesturing, Biden put her hand in his mouth.  Presumably, he was being silly, but it was a bizarre, worrisome action.  Last month she interrupted one joint interview to finish her husband's wandering answer.

Biden Intel Report Reboots Russia Hoax to Censor Hunter Corruption Stories.  Democrats never give up beating a dead horse until it's lying in pieces in the gutter.  Senate Democrats are back to demanding that the FBI investigate Justice Kavanaugh's high school years, and the Biden admin is rebooting the Russia hoax to protect Hunter and the Big Guy.  Director of National Intelligence Avril Haines presided over the release of the latest report, which claims to offer an intelligence analysis, but reads like a synthesis of Biden campaign talking points, right down to its absurd insistence that, Putin was helping Trump because he "probably also considers President Biden more apt to echo the idea of American Exceptionalism."  Finally we're getting an intel product that makes the Steele dossier seem credible.  The intelligence analysis also claims that the Hunter Biden thing is a Russian smear and that while the Russians tried to interfere in the election, nothing they did changed the outcome.  That's convenient.  Really convenient.

Someone Has to Save Joe Biden.  Elder abuse is now out in the open and happening before the nation's eyes, and we have all become complicit bystanders. [...] I am speaking about elder abuse happening in real time, televised without comment by the mainstream media, on Joe Biden.  We can speak up before this man is dead.  On March 18, Joe fell three times trying to board Air Force One!  All the media sites are running the footage.  The day before, he called his vice president, Kamala Harris, the president (again).  He is mentally unable to read the short cards in his hands anymore or the teleprompter's giant fonts.  Worse, though, is that he does not comprehend what he is reading.  Joe Biden is a danger to himself without an army of handlers boxing him in.  If he had a loving spouse in Dr. Jill or a loving son in Hunter, one of them would graciously lead him off the public stage to enjoy his sunset years (months?). [...] The situation has escalated in just sixty days, as Joe Biden has already become a danger to the United States, which he took an oath to protect on January 20.

Joe Biden Sure Looks Confused and out of It in This New Video.  Videos of Joe Biden appearing dazed and confused aren't exactly rare these days, but this latest example is fairly stark.  He's clearly not mentally well and has a hard time performing the basic duties of the office (including have much of any real interaction with the press).  Here's the video in which Biden looks like he forgets where he's at and/or what he's supposed to be doing.  [Video clip]  At the beginning, he seems to be greeting people in his typical robotic fashion but then tries to just wander off.  The secret service jump in and attempt to usher him back to Marine One, which he's supposed to be boarding.

President Biden, After 60 Days In Office Has Yet To Hold News Conference.  If President Biden makes good on a recent White House promise that he'll field questions from a roomful of reporters for the first time this coming Thursday [3/25/2021], he will be doing so on his 65th day since taking office.  Saturday marked the 60th consecutive day the nation's 46th president did not do a news conference with the White House press corps.  That stretch has been marked by several near-misses of interactions with the media:  On March 3, for example, Biden appeared ready to handle some questions from reporters during a virtual news conference with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, but the video feed of the event suddenly cut off.

US goes wobbly under Biden.  As metaphors go, it will be hard to top President Biden falling up the steps of Air Force One.  He went down not once, not twice, but three times before scrambling to his feet.  That was bad enough, but a silly White House excuse made it worse.  Wind gusts knocked him over, an aide claimed, apparently with a straight face.  The one hopeful sign is that nobody blamed Donald Trump.  If that thinking is contagious, there might be hope for the new president after all.  Otherwise, there are reasons to fear America is headed off the rails and into the weeds.  Up to now, the theme of the Biden administration has been that whatever Trump did, they will do the opposite.  The approach worked wonders during the campaign, but "opposite day" is a child's game, not a sensible governing principle for the world's superpower.

Steve Hilton Says Aloud What We've Known About Joe Biden for Months.  We've known for months that Joe Biden was not all there.  Yet the Democrats put this senile old man up as their candidate.  It didn't matter.  They could have put up a stuffed teddy bear, they were going to steal the election regardless.  The Democrats played this game but no one bought it.  They only allowed reporters near Biden who would keep their secret hidden — that Joe Biden was out to lunch.  This is a big reason why we know this election was stolen — no one was excited about Biden — no one.  But who was running the Biden show?  We suspect a number of individuals.  We also believe this is illegal and unconstitutional.

Stephen Miller:  America's enemies see 'the president is not home' and 'they are pouncing'.  Former Trump senior adviser Stephen Miller warned Friday [3/19/2021] that President Biden's verbal slips and gaffes are becoming a "national security crisis."  "Our adversaries around the world — Iran, Russia and Venezuela and China — they are looking at the United States and its chief representative, the president of our country, who is unable to get through even a softball interview without a cheat sheet and falls three times going up a flight of stairs.  It's sad to watch," Miller said during an appearance on Fox News' "Hannity."  Miller's remarks came after host Sean Hannity played clips showing Biden requiring a "cheat sheet" when responding to questions and referring to his vice president as "President Harris."

Joe Biden is much like Leonid Brezhnev.  Joe Biden's mental decline is becoming apparent to everybody.  Forgetting names, not understanding numbers, not knowing members of his own administration, and multiple referrals to his V.P. as "president" are just a few of the examples that a man considered the leader of the free world is cognitively struggling and is not able to govern the country in any meaningful way.  His rarely appeared in public during his presidential campaign because of his utter inability to either speak in public or give any coherent answers to the media.  After the inauguration, he continues to avoid the press, and he has not given a press briefing for longer than any other U.S. president in 100 years.  If that does not worry you, then you are not paying attention.  In addition to being mentally incapable to govern, Joe Biden was not a gifted political figure even in his younger days.  His 40-year-old political career is mainly remembered for his gaffes.  He has no achievements to his name.  He has changed his positions on every major political issue depending on what was the agenda of the day.  He never had any strong beliefs or personality and leadership to carry these beliefs into reality.  Biden ascended to the Presidency the same way Brezhnev did — not by honest and fair elections, but by the scheme orchestrated by a ruling political machine.

Half of American Voters Do Not Believe Joe Biden is in Charge of The Presidency.  This likely will not come as a surprise to most CTH readers, but a recent poll from Rasmussen shows the nation is split on whether Joe Biden is actually fulfilling the role of the presidency.  Forty-seven percent of those polled believe there are people behind Biden that are really in control. [...] Even die-hard democrats will admit privately that someone else seems to be running the White House.  The inability of the press secretary to outline who is actually in control of the cabinet-level staff is quite remarkable.

The Great Pretender.  Who's really running the show?  Just imagine the following scenario: [...] By the time Jill gets a Secret Service agent to help break down the door, old Joe has already started the launch sequences to annihilate Russia, and North Korea for good measure.  Once entered, these codes can't be canceled.  Russia and North Korea are alerted to the strike and launch retaliatory nuclear missiles.  World War Three has started or perhaps the end of the world as we know it.  Don't think this could happen?  Some Democrats are not so sure.  Why else do they want to wrestle these codes away from this senile old man?  They didn't even try this with their nemesis, President Trump, but they're doing it for their own man.  They know the reality of his condition.  He's a danger to everyone, even the world.  Shame on all those who put him in this position, including wife Jill and former boss Obama.

Jill Biden Is Hitting the Road, and It Says Nothing Good.  Traditionally, first ladies head up some largely non-partisan, pet project and stick to that.  To the extent that they have any role in governance, it's extremely unusual for them to involve themselves with highly political matters such as a bill that passed on a party-line vote.  Melania Trump had her no-bullying campaign.  Michelle Obama made school lunches taste terrible.  So why is Jill Biden once again pretending she's an elected official? [...] Not only is Jill nakedly ambitious, far more than any first lady in recent memory, Joe Biden simply doesn't function at a high enough level to fulfill the duties of his office alone.  Thus, you get Jill running around acting as if she's actually the president.  It's really, really awkward.

If the Covid Bill is So Popular, Why is It Important to Go Out and Sell It?  Joe Biden and Kamala Harris were planning on visiting Atlanta on Friday [3/19/2021] to promote their pork-filled Covid relief bill as part of their ridiculous "Help is Here" tour.  However, Biden and his babysitter Kamala Harris have postponed the event and decided to meet with Asian-American leaders in Atlanta instead.  Kamala Harris was confronted by a reporter on the "Help is Here" tour and Harris was so caught off guard that she awkwardly cackled her way through an answer.

Filmmakers Behind Hunter Biden Biopic Explain Chilled Creative Climate.  On this episode of The Federalist Radio Hour, filmmakers Phelim McAleer and Ann McElhinney join Culture Editor Emily Jashinsky to talk about their new movie "My Son Hunter" and how big tech, the media, and political elites covered up the Biden family's corruption right before the 2020 presidential election.  "We wouldn't be making this movie if the media, if journalists had done their jobs," McElhinney said. "...people at the mainstream media like the New York Times and CNN, NBC, CBS, all these places, you know, were just completely quiet in advance of the election despite the fact that this amazing bombshell was dropped into our laps on this laptop."  "I would argue, they were worse.  They actually intimidated other journalists from uncovering the story," McAleer added. "...this is going to be the story that big Hollywood big media and big tech don't want to hear."  This suppression right before a major presidential election, the filmmakers agreed, was not only concerning but requires attention from all angles including Hollywood.

Team Biden's Flop in Alaska Shows They Don't Have the 'Swagger' Trump's Team Had in Dealing With China.  When Joe Biden said "America is Back," many of us knew that meant we would be in the back seat on foreign policy again.  This attitude was on full display when Biden's secretary of state, Anthony Blinken, and his team met with China in Anchorage, Alaska.  The Obama-era philosophy of leading from behind is back with a vengeance, and nothing good will come of it.

Here is How the Joe Biden Administration Ends.  Joe Biden is in horrible shape, mental and physical.  We all know it.  The world knows it.  Putin knows it.  Xi knows it.  The only ones pretending Joe Biden is in any physical and mental shape to run the United States are the Democrats, the anti-Trump Republicans, the Democrat mainstream media, and his personal handler, Jill Biden.  Kamala knows Joe is lost.  She tag-teams with Jill, as handler, when the First Lady has other business to attend to.  The US fake news media is not fooling anyone by refusing to report on Joe's mental and physical state.

Will the real president of the United States please stand up?  Can anyone just tell us who [...] is running our federal government right now?  You literally get censored out of existence for suggesting that anyone other than Joe Biden won the election last November.  Yet there is no evidence today — four months later — that Mr. Biden is actually serving as president.  A weird Tron video this week appeared to show Mr. Biden — looking every bit the part of Max Headroom — interfacing with House Democrats in Congress.  Digitally, of course.  He droned on for a few minutes using scripted psycho-pablum, sitting alone at a table.  The table was empty except for his instruction manual.  As he spoke haltingly, he looked up at a giant screen from which House Speaker Nancy Pelosi stared awkwardly, fake smiling.

After Mocking Trump's Walk, Joe Biden Just Got Completely Owned By A Set Of Stairs.  President Joe Biden fell three times climbing up the stairs into Air Force One on Friday morning [3/19/2021].  Biden, the oldest president of the United States at 78 years old, stood up from the multiple stumbles after a few seconds on the ground to offer a salute in front of television cameras at the top of the staircase as he prepared to fly to Atlanta to discuss the recent shooting that left eight dead.  Biden's recent fall comes among a series of verbal gaffes and frequent mental slip-ups that plagued his campaign trail and carried over into his presidential speeches.  He also recently suffered a hairline fracture in his foot in November after he slipped and grabbed his dog's tail while stepping out of the shower, an injury that required a walking boot.  While some are questioning why Biden's newest fall should be considered news, many remained silent when the corporate media and Biden made a point to harp on then-President Donald Trump's physical and mental abilities any chance they could get.

Feeble Joe Biden Falls Several Times Boarding Air Force One — Ends Up on His Knees.  78-year-old Joe Biden fell several times while boarding Air Force One on Friday [3/19/2021].  Biden tried jogging up the stairs to board Air Force One en route to Atlanta and fell hard on his knee.  At first Biden appeared to trip on a step and quickly caught himself.  Biden tripped a second time and used his hand to break his fall but he couldn't pull himself up.

White House Spox Says Biden 'Doing Fine' Following Hard Fall — Blames the Wind — Doesn't Answer Question About Medical Explanation.  78-year-old Joe Biden fell several times while boarding Air Force One on Friday [3/19/2021].  Biden tried jogging up the stairs to board Air Force One en route to Atlanta and fell hard on his knee.  Joe Biden was visibly in pain and rubbed the side of his leg after he fell hard.  [Tweets]  Joe Biden's Deputy Press Secretary told reporters aboard Air Force One that Biden is "doing fine" following his hard fall, but refused to answer a question about a medical explanation.

White House blames Biden, 78, falling on the steps of Air Force One on the WIND and says he is '100% fine'.  The White House has blamed Biden falling up the stairs of Air Force One on the wind and insisted he is '100 percent fine'.  Biden, 78, was boarding the aircraft at Joint Base Andrews just before noon for a flight to Atlanta when he stumbled.  He gripped on to the railing, steadied himself and kept going but lost his footing a second time and then a third.  On the third trip, he fell to his knees.  He got back up then carried on up the stairs before giving a salute at the top then disappearing into the aircraft.  Once on the plane, White House Deputy Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre told reporters that he was '100 percent fine' and was preparing for his trip in Atlanta.

The Editor says...
That's all very nice, unless you understand that the White House press secretary would say Joe Biden was "100 percent fine" even if he had a broken leg.

Up the Down Staircase — Biden Style.  While ascending the staircase to Air Force One [3/19/2021], Biden fell not once, not twice, but three times, going up the stairs.  The White House blamed the three stumbles on the wind, as if brave Joe were scaling a mountain in the face of hurricane force winds.  Actually, it was only a light breeze, about 14 miles per hour.  Is Joe that frail that a light breeze can knock him to the ground?

The Editor says...
I suppose it wouldn't be good for the presidential optics if Air Force One had a stair lift machine, but maybe that's what he needs.

Have We Ever Had A President Like This Before?  Some believe that Woodrow Wilson's wife Edith ran the federal executive branch after the president had a stroke in October 1919.  Even the Obama White House said she "functionally" was in charge of the administration "for the remainder of Wilson's second term."  At least Wilson started his presidency in a sentient state.  Not sure the same can be said of Joe Biden. [...] Earlier in our history, with no television, no internet, it would have been easy to cover up a president's deficiencies.  But not today.  Biden's fading faculties are obvious, even as his aides try to hide them by limiting his exposure.  So who is running things at the White House?  Is First Lady Jill Biden playing the role of Edith Wilson?  After all, she has often been at her husband's side when the cameras have been on, sometimes helping him with his comments and responses.  But she wasn't on the ballot.  Voters didn't choose her.  No matter who is in charge, if it isn't Biden, then his presidency is a fraud.

Meet Joe Biden, America's first Idiocracy President.  [Scroll down]  Speaking of absurdity, the most powerful nation on Earth has a leader who more and more — if he's not saying it outright — has a searching, joyless expression that seems to ask "Where am I?  What am I supposed to be doing here?"  This is absurdity, but in an Idiocracy absurdity is ok.  When Biden does say these things outright like "Whatever you want me to do" to Nancy 'Nance' Pelosi, no one except for conservative news outlets expresses how bad this is for the leader of the free world to signal that he is not actually in charge.  No one elected Nancy Pelosi to the presidency the last time I checked.  The mainstream media has been praising nearly everything he does, but he is not doing anything, and everyone is pretending that this doesn't matter.  Sometimes, though, with all of the political props being shifted around, with all the raising and dropping of the curtains, with all of the hustle to do the most damage in the shortest amount of time, we catch a glimpse of what is really going on.

Biden calls his second-in-command 'President Harris'.  President Biden misspoke in a speech Thursday offering updates on an update on vaccination progress in the U.S., referring to his vice president as "President Harris."  "When President Harris and I took ..." Biden said, before momentarily pausing, "a virtual tour of a vaccination site in Arizona not long ago, one of the nurses on that tour injecting people, giving vax each shot, was like administering a dose of hope."  At the same time, the president announced the administration would achieve its goal of 100 million vaccines administered in 100 days on Friday, the 58th day of the new administration.  At this point, Biden said, 65% of people aged 65 and older have received at least one dose of a Covid-19 vaccine.

Thomas Sowell: Biden as America's Point of No Return.  America could come back from the moral rot, radicalism, authoritarianism, and rejection of everything the country used to stand for that are personified by Joe Biden and implemented by his handlers.  But we are like a baseball team down five runs in the bottom of the ninth inning.  [Video clip]

The Biden Administration Is Imposing A Media Blackout At The Border.  On Wednesday [3/17/2021], NBC News reported the Biden administration has imposed what amounts to a media blackout at the southwest border amid a worsening crisis.  Border Patrol agents, including sector chiefs and press officers, are under an unofficial gag order not to answer questions from the press, according to four current and two former Customs and Border Protection officials who spoke to NBC News on condition of anonymity.  Federal officials along the border, they say, have been verbally instructed — there is no official memo, no paper-trail — to deny all press requests for ride-alongs and refer all media inquiries, even from local reporters, to Washington.  Officials responsible for gathering data about the number of illegal immigrants in federal custody, they say, have been told not to share that information with anyone to prevent possible leaks.

Tell the Truth, Mr. President.  When a politician promises to "tell the truth," as President Biden did in his nationally televised address last Thursday, you can add that statement to familiar ones lacking the ring of sincerity. [...] A promise to tell the truth might imply that others (himself?) have been lying in the past.  Why not just be truthful?  Honesty is not only the best policy, it is a practice people don't have to brag about if they have a record of veracity.  If Biden told the truth, he might have mentioned that, as Sen. Joni Ernst (R-Iowa) told Fox's "America's Newsroom," "91 percent" of the $1.9 trillion relief bill he recently signed does not go toward pandemic-related recovery.  The rest has more pork in it than a pen full of blue-ribbon hogs.  Even the New York Times, CNN, and The Washington Post — no friends of Trump, but political and ideological allies of Biden and all things far left — are criticizing the president for his misleading claims.

It's not possible that the White House is faking Biden press moments, is it?  Almost two months into the Biden administration, it's an open secret that Joe Biden won't take spontaneous questions from the press.  That's why it was peculiar on Wednesday for a clip suddenly to appear purportedly showing Joe answering questions from random reporters somewhere in America.  What was even more peculiar was that Joe's hands magically passed through the microphones.  In other words, the weird hand illusion (combined with other oddities) in the video suggests that the White House is disseminating fake videos to make it look as if Joe is talking spontaneously to the media.  [Video clips]  This video doesn't look any more real than the first one, especially if you notice the peculiar shadowy quality when the pale gray fuzzy microphone appears in front of Joe's dark suit.  That is the look of something in front of a green screen in a poorly made movie.  It doesn't mean that's what's happening.  But it's what it looks like.  I'm not the only one noticing this.

There is No Biden Administration.  The Biden campaign has been open about Kamala Harris being trained to step into Biden's shoes because it doesn't expect him to run for reelection or even make it through one term.  Except that presidents aren't supposed to run for office as figureheads or stalking horses.  Kamala Harris isn't talking to foreign leaders because she has more experience, but because the guy whose job it is to do it isn't up to anything challenging beyond some photo ops, stumbling through a teleprompter speech, and then a trip back home over the weekend.  Don't ask him to hold a press conference or pull off an actual State of the Union address.  Obama was the teleprompter-in-chief, but Biden is also the telecommuter-in-chief.  Biden's face is everywhere, but there's no real sign that he's actually running anything.  Instead the Biden administration seems to be exactly the kind of mess that the 25th Amendment was designed to prevent in which a non-functional president is the figurehead for the cabinet members and the special interests who are actually calling all the shots.

Joe Biden:  More Heel Than Healer.  It is becoming obvious that in Biden's rare scripted addresses, the "message" tends to lose relevance because it is so often compromised by caveats.  Anyway, no matter what the subject, Biden sees himself as a calming, steady influence, the "adult in the room."  Anything he proposes is simply by way of righting the Draconian policies he inherited.  He promises that we'll smile again and glimpse that proverbial light at the end of the tunnel.  He helps himself to credit where it is not due.  He pretends to have a firm grip on the ball his predecessor dropped.  But Biden's flat delivery, blank stare, general confusion, and tortured shuffle defy his hopeful pronouncements.  All his deliberations about how "we" have to come together and how "this is America, after all," is nothing but trite tripe, cooked up by his speechwriters.  In reality, Uncle Joe, having already broken many of his campaign promises, is more a heel than a healer.

Joe Biden Makes Up Story About Turkey, Immigrants, Central America and Saving the Border in 2014.  George Stephanopoulos held a sitdown interview with Joe Biden that aired on Wednesday [3/17/2021].  During the interview, Joe Biden made up this story about Turkey and immigrants and his $800 billion bill to study on Central America. [...] In fact it is not clear if anything he said in the exchange was truthful and accurate.  Of course, political hack George Stephanopoulos did not follow up with Joe on his wild Turkish story.

Bubble Biden clearly not up for tough questions — or the job.  [Scroll down]  The story is in some ways typical of the big picture which shows, now that Donald Trump is gone, the media are free to return to trivial pursuits to protect their chosen president.  For four years, we were assured that journalism was about saving American democracy.  Now journalism is about ... nothing.  That might be reasonable if there was nothing to cover.  But the willful blindness illustrates how most of the Washington press corp has put aside the brass knuckles it used on Trump and taken out the pom-poms to cheerlead for another Democrat in the White House.  If they were serious about covering Biden seriously, the media would examine the elephant in the room instead of just mentioning it.  Why exactly isn't the president of the United States available for questions?

Biden Is Accused Of Filming A Green Screen Video As His Hand Appears To Pass Through The Microphone During His Latest Public Appearance.  Video footage of President Joe Biden meeting with reporters on Tuesday [3/16/2021] as he left the White House for a visit to Chester, Pennsylvania sparked a conspiracy theory, and people called Biden a green screen President.  You have to wonder after you see the video from outside The White House on Tuesday as Biden prepares to board Marine One.  Now, normally people focus on the crazy stuff that comes out of the mouth of President Joe Biden.  But today everyone is focusing on his hands.

'Gosnell' Movie Creators Working on Hunter Biden Movie To Expose 'Crimes of the Biden Family'.  The couple behind the movie Gosnell:  The Trial of America's Most Prolific Serial Killer, are producing a new film that they say will expose the "crimes of the Biden Family."  The movie, titled My Son Hunter, will be a "biopic of Hunter Biden chronicling his elitist party lifestyle, dodgy business dealings, family drama, and corruption."  They are looking to raise $2.5 million via crowdfunding to finance the film.  As of this writing, they are at 9.7 percent of their goal.  "The media and big tech covered up the bombshell report by The New York Post that showed the depth of corruption in the Biden family," explained producer Phelim McAleer.  "The truth deserves to be told and it needs to be seen by as many people as possible.  An entertaining and enjoyable movie is the best way to tell the story of the Biden family's corruption and to ensure as many people are educated about this as possible.  If the media won't do their jobs, we'll do it for them."

Yeah, that'll do it.  Who needs a fence?
Biden's blunt message to migrants at border: 'Don't come'.  President Biden on Tuesday [3/16/2021] issued a blunt message to migrants thinking about crossing the border:  "Don't come."  The president spoke about the crisis at the US-Mexico border in an interview with ABC News — in which host George Stephanopoulos asked, "do you have to say quite clearly, 'Don't come'?"  "Yes, I can say quite clearly:  Don't come over," Biden replied.  "Don't leave your town or city or community."  The number unaccompanied of children and teenagers taken into custody by US authorities at the southern border has shot up in recent weeks, amid an increase in migrants attempting to cross into the country.

Governed by Geezers.  Last Thursday, President Joe Biden was allowed out of his protective bubble to deliver a nationally televised address to the nation.  This was big news in Washington, as Biden has been in hiding since taking office. [...] The stated reason for the address was to inform the public about the party's heroic effort to fight the Covid panic.  The real reason, of course, was to prove that Biden was not already dead.  He shuffled out to the podium like a sad old man in a nursing home and mumbled through a mostly incoherent speech.  It was a good reminder that in his prime, Joe Biden was a glib dunce.  Now he is no longer glib.  The absurdity of the performance was amusing, but it was also sad.  This man should be at home playing with his grandchildren, whose names he never remembers.  Instead, he is being forced to play President, while minions from the inner party push through the great reset.  It is a disgusting and vulgar display that should never be allowed to happen, but it really does capture the state of the political class.

Time to Review the 25th Amendment.  It is no accident that Joe Biden has not given a State of the Union address or had a press conference since his inauguration.  He is simply not mentally capable of doing either.  I predict that Kamala Harris will become president of the United States before the end of the year, pursuant to the 25th Amendment.  The amendment was ratified by the states in 1967.  A review of its provisions is in order. [...] What is "inability," and who determines what it is?  What is "disability," and who determines what it is?  When the vice president succeeds the president, does the vice president become the president, or is he only the vice president acting as president (on a temporary basis)?

The Legends of Our Fall.  Another legend presented as fact is the vigorous presidency of 78-year old Joe Biden.  If he has not given a press conference in 50 days, we are told, it is only because he does not wish to become a distraction from pressing events.  His slurred speech, fragmented pronunciation, mental fogginess, slips, and blank stares are not reported fully.  In late 1944 if millions of Americans still believed the myth that FDR could walk on his own, albeit with difficulty, and remained in sound health, so in 2021 Joe Biden is supposed to be cogent, alert, and without cognitive issues.  The result?  The United States is now unknowingly engaged in a great experiment not seen since the hushed-up incapacity of stroke-victim Woodrow Wilson:  can the oldest president in our history, with obvious cognitive impairment, serve as a virtual commander-in-chief?

Joe Biden's part-time presidency.  [Scroll down]  Joe Biden is a different creature entirely:  he is not a dynamo like Trump, nor a slacker like Obama.  One gets the impression, instead, that he is incapable of putting in a full day of work.  The best evidence yet comes from his schedule for this week.  Steve Herman, a White House reporter, posted on Twitter what Joe Biden's schedule is over the next five days.  On Monday, he will deliver remarks; on Tuesday, he will travel to Pennsylvania; on Wednesday, he will have a telephone meeting with the President of Ireland; and on Friday, he will travel to Georgia.  In case you are thinking I skipped over Thursday, I did not.  He has nothing on his calendar for Thursday[.] [...] Even when you drill down into the daily details not available on the weekly calendar, Biden is barely moving.

Gropey Joe punts on Andrew Cuomo.  As New York's Gov. Andrew Cuomo politically immolates in sex-harassment allegations, one guy who's got to be uncomfortable about the entire wretched specter is Gropey Joe Biden.  Slow Joe's narrative-makers have finally let him come out of his shell with this ridiculous punt of a response: [...] See, if the investigators don't find anything indictable in this he-said, she-said world of sexual harassment accusations, then they didn't happen, right?  It all comes down to the investigators and courts to make it real, just as election fraud all comes down to whether the Supreme Court wants to hear about it.  If such bosses say 'yes,' then it happened.  If the bosses say 'no,' it didn't.  Truth is subject to their approval.  In Bidenworld, it's never about the merits of the actual case.  Which is absurd.  Either he "believes women" or he doesn't.  He probably does believe these seven and counting women because he's got a history of this of his own.

Has Joe Biden Sold America out to the Mexican Drug Cartels?  I've said for two years now on my national radio show that the best thing that could ever happen for the Mexican drug cartels would be a Democratic presidential victory.  Mexican drug kingpins have waited their entire lives for this fantasy.  They must be singing, dancing and toasting champagne right now, because President Joe Biden is the greatest gift ever bestowed upon the Mexican cartels.  Experts estimated the money made on drug trafficking by the cartels at around $500 billion a year.  That's half a trillion dollars a year — "trillion" with a T.  Who quotes that figure?  Republican senators.

Are We Still Free?  Possibly the strongest belief I had going into last year and the one I was saddest to lose when I realized it simply wasn't true anymore, was the belief that we were still a free country.  Biden's teleprompter speech Thursday evening paraded his non-belief in the Constitution.  While claiming to be a unity president, not only did he give President Trump and his team zero credit for getting the vaccine fast-tracked and the country supplied with at least 100 million doses, he, Emperor No-Clothes, pronounced that he has decided we might be able to get outside with our close family members for the 4th of July, only if we are good boys and girls.  If the new normal means the Democrats-in-charge will have the power to dictate the nature of small outdoor family gatherings two full months after his goal of getting every willing person vaccinated, then Biden doesn't understand the meaning of Independence Day.

Biden, the cigar store Indian of the White House.  It was strange watching our wooden Indian speak, totally without facial expression, totally unaware that he was glibly lying, totally without guile, and seemingly sincere in his effort to do his job persuading us about the great things he was doing for us.  He ignored all other issues than the one, COVID, that he was single-mindedly addressing.  He lied again and again but did so with a sincerity indicating that he didn't grasp the meaning of his own speech.  I couldn't help comparing Biden's usefulness to those figures back in the old days.  They attracted people into the store.  They were a successful gimmick.  Biden has a similar purpose.  He's an empty vessel, out front, where everyone can see him.  He doesn't engage with his audience, any more than those wooden figures could.  The real powers in the White House can dress him up and then do whatever they do to make sure he's awake.  They can train him to read the Jumbotron teleprompter he apparently needs as the words slowly scroll by.  He does his part, for sure.  He reads a script, slowly, precisely, as he's been trained.  It's a script clearly written by someone else.  But you can see it's all hollow.  You know he's not fully grasping what he's saying.  You know because he can lie without even blinking. [...] Being able to lie without blinking, without a tell, can indicate several things.  In Biden's case, the most obvious choices are that he's a psychopath who has no conscience at all or he is a person who doesn't know what is real anymore because of dementia.

Biden is a soporific cipher, a contrivance of the left.  Anyone who tried to stay awake throughout Biden's first speech to the nation likely zoned out after three minutes.  He is a boring speaker.  We all know he is laboring to read the teleprompter as written, but he has difficulty even doing that.  Biden is the emptiest of suits who is being shuffled before the camera on rare occasions as the pretend president, but anyone with a pulse can see that the man is senile, diminished beyond reach.  He is a clueless but willing tool of the Maoists who are calling the shots and are dedicated to their project, the third term of Barack Obama.  And boy, are those behind-the-scenes folks excited by their newfound political power.  They have achieved their nirvana:  a nearly brain-dead droid as the face of their totalitarian agenda, their one-world government global reset.

There is simply no way this buffoon got 81 million legitimate votes.
President Biden is crumbling before our eyes.  Joe Biden's decline has become so painful to see and so embarrassing to watch that it feels cruel to mention it.  But it's even more cruel that Biden's team act as if it's not happening, and most of America's media look the other way.  On Thursday night [3/11/2021], Biden marked the first anniversary of the Covid-19 shutdowns and his fiftieth day in the White House by giving the first televised address of his presidency.  He hadn't been seen in public for three days.  From the moment he wheezed up to the lectern and peered into the camera, you could tell Biden was on top form:  croaky sentiment, sporadic belligerence, and only the occasional moment when he looked oddly distant and perplexed.  He got through twenty minutes, then tottered off without taking any questions.  This is how low the bar now is for Biden.  And we can see how hard Biden has to fight, and what a long run-up he requires, if he is to clear it.  We can see it in his struggle to follow the simple lines on his autocue, and in his bungling of the simplest ad-libs.  We see it in the clips of his increasingly desperate handlers trying to block him from questions at his rare and carefully managed appearances before the cameras.  Most of all, we see it in his eyes.  "What am I doing here?" Biden asked after fumbling his autocue lines in an address in Texas in late February.  He reached for the cue cards that are now his constant companion.  "I'm gonna lose track here." [...] Compare how he moves and sounds now to how he was a year ago, let alone five years ago.  Biden looks and sounds frail.  He seems visibly distressed at his inability to carry out the simplest requirements of office — and at a time when the requirements are simpler than usual.

The Many Ways Biden Has Kicked Culture Wars Into Overdrive.  You'll see "equity" a lot in Biden's executive actions.  Besides requiring the entire government to commit to an "equity agenda," Biden has further inflamed the culture wars in more than two dozen other executive actions.  And we're less than two months into his presidency.  One executive order directs all administrative agencies to apply the Supreme Court's Bostock decision to all laws under their purview.  In Bostock, the Supreme Court reinterpreted Title VII, which prohibits employment discrimination on the basis of sex, to include transgender status and sexual orientation.  Under Biden's order, the government will apply this new definition to all federal laws and regulations.  That includes Title IX, which covers education, meaning that schools receiving federal funds will be forced, among other things, to allow biological males who "identify" as female to play on girls sports teams.  And just to make it extra clear that sex-specific sports teams and bathrooms are not permissible, Biden issued a separate order about Title IX, just in case anyone might have missed it.

When a Handful of Crises Aren't Enough.  The Biden administration has enjoyed no honeymoon.  The cabal that addled Joe Biden fronts really didn't want one.  Bridge-building, comity, and compromise are passé.  What Ron Klain, Susan Rice, and a knot of plutocrats and "progressives" who pull Joe's strings want are crises.  Manufactured crises are just as good as the real deals.  They're opportunities not to be wasted.

The Editor says...
If the "Biden administration has enjoyed no honeymoon," it is entirely his fault.  The flurry of executive orders he signed on his first day in office effectively terminated any smooth transition he might have expected.

Fact Check Nails Biden After First Speech to Nation Filled with Lies.  Even the mainstream media is nailing the president for stretching the truth in his first prime-time address to the nation.  The New York Times fact-checked President Joe Biden's speech Thursday night on the one-year anniversary of the coronavirus pandemic, and things don't look good.  Although it didn't call Biden out for lies explicitly, every statement it recorded was marked as either "exaggerated" or "misleading."

Welcome to the White Privilege Presidency.  Mr. Biden is living proof that no matter how dumb you are or how wrong you have always been or how many things you have screwed up, if you are just White enough and willing to wait around long enough accomplishing nothing, the kingship will eventually be yours.  This is a guy who had been rejected by voters — often in his own party — in his endless quest for the presidency many times during his five decades running his mouth in Washington.  It was only when a gifted political outsider needed an old White guy for a running mate that Mr. Biden's ticket to the White House finally got punched.

Mark Meadows Hilariously Rips Biden; 'Trump Was More Focused At 1am Than Biden Is At 1pm".  [Scroll down]  "Today, we heard about Biden's dog biting someone.  Can you imagine if President Trump had a dog at the White House and it bit someone, the press would go crazy.  They would say, 'This dog is working with Russia and we gotta have an investigation,'" [Rep. Jim] Jordan said.  He added that "the American people deserve to know who is making the decisions," and that "they're also sick and tired of the double standard they see every single day from the mainstream press."  Meadows responded with a poignant comeback that tens of millions of Americans believe.  "Jim's absolutely right," Meadows said.  "President Trump was more focused at 1 a.m. in the morning than Joe Biden is in the afternoon at 1 p.m."

"The Truth": What Biden Didn't Say in His Prime Time Address.  On Thursday night [3/11/2021], Joe Biden addressed the American people in prime time for the first time during the 50&Nbsp;days he's been in the White House, [...] But it's what he didn't say that is even more crucial for Americans to hear.  Almost in passing, Biden mentioned that he and Kamala Harris, and their respective spouses, along with members of his cabinet, will soon be out on the road across the country, The implication of his words is that he'll be explaining the "benefits" of the massive, one-party bill he signed into law Thursday, that Democrats in Congress rammed down the American people's throats.  But there's much, much more.

The Editor says...
Joe Biden is not going on a cross-country road trip.  Not now, not ever.  Air Force One might as well be in mothballs until President Harris takes over.

Joe Biden on Lockdown Anniversary: 'Stick with the Rules' and Trust Government.  President Joe Biden recognized the year-long anniversary of the coronavirus lockdowns on Thursday [3/11/2021] but urged Americans to continue obeying guidance from the federal government.  "Put trust and faith in our government to fulfill its most important function, which is to protect the American people," the president said.  In his first primetime speech as president, Biden spoke about the punishing emotional toll of the coronavirus lockdowns but encouraged Americans to continue following all of the rules from health officials.  "We need to remember that the government isn't some foreign force in a distant capital," he said.  "No, it's us.  All of us."

The Editor says...
From where I'm sitting, the federal government most certainly is "some foreign force in a distant capital."

Biden will announce in first prime time speech that EVERY ADULT will be eligible for the COVID vaccine by May 1.  President Joe Biden asked Americans to stay the course fighting the coronavirus while offering hope that life could begin to return to 'normal' later this summer.  In a prime time address to the nation, given from the East Room of the White House, Biden outlined the steps his administration has taken to combat the deadly disease, and said the 'goal' was to have Americans enjoy July 4th with their loved ones.  'July 4th with your loved one is the goal,' he said.  'If we do all this, if we do our part, if we do this together by July Fourth there's a good chance you and families and friends will be able to get together in your backyard or in your neighborhood and have a cookout or barbecue and celebrate Independence Day.  That doesn't mean large events, with lots of people together but it does mean small groups will be able to get together,' he said.

The Editor says...
"If we do all this, if we do our part, if we do this together" sounds a lot like a demand for mandatory vaccinations.  It also sounds like a veiled threat.

Biden Announces U.S. Will Now Be on 'War Footing' at [his] First Prime Time Address.  President Biden finally made his first prime time address on Thursday night [3/11/2021].  During his speech, the president promised the United States would be on a "war footing" with its efforts to "beat the virus," which entails vaccinating the public.  "My fellow Americans," Biden said, "you are owed nothing less than the truth."  "And for all of you asking when things will get back to normal, here is the truth," he continued.  "The only way to get our lives back, to get our economy back on track, is to beat the virus.  You've been hearing me say that while I was running, and the last fifty days I've been president."

The Editor says...
On the contrary, there is another way to get the economy back on track:  Get the government out of the way and let the free market take over again.

Joe Biden's Inspiring Vision of Defeating COVID-19 Is Depressingly Bleak.  [Scroll down]  Well, Biden's delivery certainly is boring — but he is driving America to the Left at breakneck speed, and his own words suggest he wanted to use the pandemic as cover for this "structural" transformation.  Biden's new "normal" championing abortion, railroading religious freedom, forcing the transgender destruction of women's sports, opening the southern border, and more will likely horrify the Americans who thought Trump's presidency was exhausting.  Yet Biden's dour tone on the end of COVID-19 may suggest something else, something perhaps too horrible to contemplate.  Is the president actually depressed that the pandemic is receding?  Does he fear that COVID-19 will no longer provide an "opportunity" for "structural" change?  That would be truly terrifying.

A Barely Alive Joe Biden Levies Threats, Appears Clueless in Primetime Speech.  Tonight, Joe Biden gave his first primetime address, and I could probably spend an entire article just riffing on his appearance.  The man is not well, and that was once again obvious tonight.  If one ever needed a visual for what being half-dead looks like, you got that in spades from this speech.  Biden stood behind his podium, often slumped over, squinting to read his teleprompter's massive font.  He's getting worse, and it's a sad scene.  Regardless, there was also some semblance of substance to address regarding what he said.  At one point, the president appeared to levy a fresh threat to re-lockdown the country if you don't follow his rules.

What's Scarier?  Biden's Totalitarian Promises, or the Number of Americans Who Willingly Acquiesce?  Joe Biden's Wuhan Flu anniversary speech was insulting and disturbing in many ways.  He started out by lying about President Trump's actions at the beginning of the pandemic, then went through a list of everything we lost during these draconian lockdowns — attempting to convince us that he sympathizes with what we've lost and that We're All In This Together™.  Watching Biden lie to us and hearing him insult us is annoying and, frankly, boring at this point — because we expect it.  But in this speech Biden went far beyond annoying and straight onto a terrifying new path, the path of complete government control.

Tucker Carlson Delivers a Hilarious, and Then Deadly Serious Response to Biden's Speech.  Tucker Carlson didn't deliver the best response to Joe Biden's primetime address last night.  I think that honor goes to RedState's Jennifer Van Laar, who lambasted the tyrannical act delivered from the mouth of a man who is clearly barely hanging on at this point. [...] As an aside, the end of the speech is just really weird.  His body appeals frail, exasperated from having to stand for 25 minutes.  He looks at the camera and says "I look forward to seeing you," something that makes no sense whatsoever in context.  He then slaps the podium like he just knocked back a final shot after a long night at the bar.  I'm guessing that last segment wasn't on the teleprompter.

Biden's scary, boring, and bizarre address to the nation.  [Scroll down]  On Thursday night [3/11/2021], a masked Biden tottered down a long, empty hall to a podium.  He then gave the most bizarre presidential address in American history. [...] Biden kept saying he was going to tell the truth.  He quoted a woman he allegedly met who told him her heart's desire:  "'I just want the truth.  The truth.  Just tell me the truth.'"  "Tell the truth," Biden said again.  "My fellow Americans," he said, "you're owed nothing less than the truth."  Later, he added, "I will tell you the truth."  And then he said, "In the coming weeks and months, I'll be traveling along with the first lady" and a whole host of others "to tell you the truth."  Do you know who says things like that?  Someone who's lying.

The Progressive Imaginarium.  "T-Bone" lives in the progressive Imaginarium.  Senator Cory Booker (D-N.J.) conjured him up as his fake pal from the 'hood. [...] "Corn-pop" also resides in the Imaginarium.  Good ol' Joe Biden from Scranton occasionally would summon the "Pop." Supposedly he was one tough, African American, razor-wielding gangster that the youthful Mighty Joe Biden won over.  But first, as a lifeguard of an inner-city swimming pool, defiant, and armed with his own 6-feet of chain, Joe told us he taught Pop the meaning of obedience.  In his impromptu séances, Joe has conjured up lots of Imaginarium denizens.  Along with Corn Pop, there was the anonymous bully — son of a donut shop owner — whose head Joe slammed down on the counter.  The felony?  The brute had insulted his sister and the Biden family name.

Kamala Has the Best of Both Worlds.  [Scroll down]  Some pundits differ on the amount of time the left will wait before putting Biden out to pasture.  I've heard everything from a few months to two years, the only constant being its inevitability.  There's a certain amount of logic to it.  Like Biden, Kamala never met a standard she could keep or a moral she agreed with for anything other than cynical, self-aggrandizing motives.  She wouldn't recognize the commandment against lying if it bit her in the fundament, and she is (with apologies to Fedex) absolutely, positively a godless communist who hates America and everything that's good and decent in the world.  Admittedly, Sleepy Joe may not be an out-and-out communist, but as a good socialist, he's right next door to communism, making him and Kamala two peas in a pod.  They agree on 99.9% of everything, differing mainly on how fast their left-wing policies should be implemented.

President Biden Goes 50 Days Without a Press Conference.  President Joe Biden has not held a press conference in the first 50 days of his presidency, taking longer to do so than the last two presidents combined.  Wednesday, March 10, marks Biden's 50th day in office, but he has yet to hold a single press conference, prompting critics to question his administration's self-professed commitment to transparency.

How long can President Biden hide from real news conferences?  Just how long will the "Hide Biden" strategy last?  No modern president has gone this far into a term without holding a real news conference, according to The Associated Press.  And of course being The Associated Press, this is described as "discipline," not avoidance.  It is described by a sympathetic press ally as a White House "strategy."  But it is avoidance.  And the fact is, he should be having news conferences.  And by news conferences, I don't mean questions he can ignore as he's led off the stage by first lady Jill Biden, holding his elbow to direct him if he turns the wrong way.  And I don't mean Biden reading from a teleprompter.  He even has difficulty with that lately.

Day 49: Half the nation worried Biden not 'physically and mentally up to the job'.  It doesn't take much for the nation's voters to become concerned that President Biden, the oldest new chief executive at 78 years old, might not be up for the job.  The latest proof:  His resistance to holding a full-blown press conference now 49 days into his presidency has half the country worried.  In the latest Rasmussen Reports survey of likely voters, 50% said they are not confident that "Joe Biden is physically and mentally up to the job of being president of the United States."  Another 48% have confidence in Biden, though only 34% were "very confident" that he was up to the job.

Exactly what Obama would have done.
Transgender surgery is now free for military, thanks to Biden executive order.  Taxpayers will now foot the bill for gender reassignment surgery for active military personnel and veterans, with some treatments costing upward of $200,000 under an executive order signed by President Biden.  Tucked inside Biden's Jan. 25 transgender order, "Enabling All Qualified Americans to Serve Their Country in Uniform," is a clause that repeals an Obama-era policy that prohibited federally funded reassignment surgery.  This was followed up by memos from both Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin and Veterans Affairs Secretary Denis McDonough specifically stating that surgery is now an added benefit.  "This revised policy will also ensure all medically-necessary transition related care authorized by law is available to all Service members," Austin wrote.

Joe Biden Says Military Will Focus on Making "Maternity Flight Suits".  The Biden White House announced on Monday [3/8/2021], which happened to be International Women's Day, that the US military is focusing on "maternity flight suits" for pregant women.  Because it's important that pregnant women are able to drop into enemy territory during wartime.  Biden made the statement right before he forgot where [...] he was and the name of the general standing behind him.

This is more proof that Barack H. Obama is pulling Biden's strings.  Weakening the military was one of Obama's primary goals.

Jen Psaki Thinks You're a Moron, and She's Making It Clear We Don't Really Have a President.  The situation at the border is getting worse, specifically regarding the number of migrant children in custody, and the responsibility for that lies solely with Joe Biden and his pursuit of absolutely terrible policies that are encouraging a surge of illegal immigration.  Despite that, Jen Psaki decided to make some ridiculous claims in today's [3/9/2021] presser, clearly believing that those listening are morons.  In the process, she also made it clear that we don't really have a president.

Joe Biden's mental capacity is diminishing before our eyes.  The worst kept secret in Washington, D.C. is that Joe Biden is suffering from serious age-related cognitive decline.  In January, although some people predicted he would remain in office for up to two years before he was gently ushered out to make room for Kamala Harris, I looked at the man and thought he was going to be retired by June.  Lately, though, Biden looks as if he's heading for an April or May retirement.  On Monday, he had his worst public appearance yet, when he was unable to remember either the name for his secretary of defense or the Pentagon.  Anybody who's dealt with aging relatives unlucky enough to suffer from cognitive decline, whether Alzheimer's or age-related senility, recognizes what's going on with Joe Biden. [...] There's a reason Biden isn't doing any press conferences and that he's so far failed in his constitutional obligation to give Congress a State of the Union address.  He can't.

Press corps ushered away after asking Biden questions — again.  Aides to President Biden hurried the traveling press corps away as they shouted questions at an unresponsive commander-in-chief in Washington Tuesday — his 48th day in office without holding a solo press conference.  The incident occurred toward the end of a visit by Biden to W.S. Jenks & Son, a hardware store in the nation's capital that benefited from his temporary extension for smaller businesses of the Paycheck Protection Program.  After quietly watching Biden interact with store owners and employees for about 10 minutes, reporters began shouting a series of questions at him to no avail.  Immediately after, handlers for the 46th president began yelling back assertively, "Come on, press, you gotta go," as the entire gaggle of reporters was quickly removed from the scene.

Jill Biden, the Meghan Markle in the WH, is egregiously guilty of elder abuse.  The millions of Americans who were paying attention throughout the 2020 election campaign all became painfully aware of the fact that Joe Biden's cognitive abilities were slipping and slipping fast.  His wife, as the person closest to him, should have been the one to call the campaign quits in order to reduce stress on the man.  Instead, apparently so anxious to become the First Lady by any means necessary, Mrs. Biden continued to push her failing husband's campaign forward as if he were mentally qualified.  Of course all those around him knew as well that he was in the throes of dementia; it was impossible to miss the signs. [...] Not only was his progressive neurological dimming clear, so was the fact that at no time throughout the campaign could he draw a crowd.  We all saw that he could not give even a short talk without a giant teleprompter.  The man was toast then.  Now he is burnt toast.  He no longer ever credibly read that jumbo teleprompter.

Watch Biden try, really try, and utterly fail to remember the name of his own Secretary of Defense.  This is scary stuff:  [Video clip]  Translation:
"The guy" Biden spent 15 seconds trying to name before giving up = U.S. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin
"That outfit over there" = the Pentagon

Biden seems to forget defense secretary's name, calls him 'the guy who runs that outfit'.  President Biden on Monday seemed to forget Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin's name at a White House event — calling the Pentagon chief "the guy who runs that outfit over there."  Biden was announcing the nomination of two female generals to lead US military combatant commands.  "And I want to thank the sec — the, the, ah former general.  I keep calling him general, but my, my — the guy who runs that outfit over there," Biden said.  "I want to make sure we thank the secretary for all he's done to try to implement what we just talked about.  And for recommending these two women for promotion."  Earlier at the event, Biden mentioned the Defense Department leader by his name, "Secretary Austin," while appearing to read from a teleprompter.

Barack Obama And John Kerry's Fifteen Biggest LIES About Iran And The JCPOA.  Joe Biden and his foreign policy team are looking to push the U.S. back into the JCPOA Iran nuclear deal.  Many, especially on the left, support their objective, not realizing that the JCPOA allows Iran to build nuclear weapons in the near future, which will place the United States, the Sunni Gulf States, and Israel in grave danger.  I do not believe that most supporters of the Biden Iran policies are doing so out of a hatred of Israel, the US, or the Sunni states.  IMHO, their support stems from naivete.  Much of what America was told about the JCPOA by Obama and Kerry were not true.  Most of the MSM covered up the lies back then and are still not reporting the truth about the deal.  The below are what I believe are the fifteen most troubling examples of the lies we were told about the JCPOA by former President Obama and former Secretary of State John Kerry: [...]

Biden's German Shepherds Shipped Back to Delaware After 'Biting Incident' Involving White House Security.  Joe and Jill Biden's German Shepherds were shipped back to Delaware after a "biting incident" involving White House security, CNN reported.  Major was adopted by Joe Biden and his  handler  wife Jill in 2018 from an animal shelter.  Major and Champ moved into the White House in January and they're already gone.  The condition of the victim was not disclosed but it was serious enough to remove both dogs from the White House.

Biden's Incoherence Just Hit Critical Mass, This Is Scary Awful.  As we reported two days ago, Joe Biden completely made no sense when he was trying to explain the Wuhan coronavirus relief bill.  It was really bad and it explains why they're afraid to have him deliver an address to Congress or do any kind of a real solo press conference, because at this point they have to be afraid this is all going to fall apart if he does anything live and this all becomes too obvious to the American people.  But there's only so long that they can hold this off.  And it's getting worse, as video today revealed.  [Video clip] [...] He literally forgets the name of his Secretary of Defense, forgets the position, as well as the name of the Pentagon, calling him "the guy that runs that outfit over there."

Tracking all of Joe Biden's false or misleading claims.  Biden lives in the shadow of President Trump.  This is one of the things he is still aware of.  His criticism of the Trump administration has no limits, and it is not bound by reality or facts.  During a March 2 news conference on the COVID-19 pandemic, President Joe Biden claimed that former President Donald Trump's administration did not ensure there would be enough vaccines for the American public.  "When I came into office, the prior administration had contracted for not nearly enough vaccine to cover adults in America," said Biden.  "We rectified that."  It's been a common political lie since the Biden took office, that the initial vaccine rollout under Trump was "chaotic."  PolitiFact previously rated this claim as Mostly False.  Now he claims Trump did not order enough vaccine.  Here are the facts: [...]

Bombshell on Biden's mental health!?  President Joe Biden is facing new questions over his health after the 78-year-old's recent string of concerning public appearances.  Sky News Australia posted a video with the headline "Joe Biden needs help from Jill Biden as he is 'cognitively impaired'" featuring Australian journalist and New York Post columnist Miranda Devine.  Devine noted that first lady Jill Biden had been next to the president as he spoke to Univision on immigration issues.  "She was prompting him when he forgot words because he is cognitively impaired, that's clear," Devine said.  "It waxes and wanes, but he still is very foggy."  The first lady even inserted herself into the interview.

Grenell: 'President Rice is doing a great job'.  Former Trump administration official Richard Grenell said Director of the United States Domestic Policy Council Susan Rice is pulling the strings behind the scenes when it comes to foreign policy while President Joe Biden has been absent.  "President Susan Rice is doing a great job," Grenell told "The Count" on Newsmax TV Saturday [3/6/2021].  "She's literally behind the scenes just pulling all the strings and nobody's paying attention.  It's a joke that we think that she's not running foreign policy, we know she is."

Roger Stone:  Who Controls Joe Biden?  Who is really in charge of the United States, and why is the Deep State so desperate to put in such an obvious puppet like Joe Biden?  [Video clip]

Three Trump Foreign Policy Successes Biden Is Undoing.  President Joe Biden is undoing several foreign policy successes of the Trump administration for no apparent reason other than radical ideology and political spite.  In each case, former President Donald Trump was able to achieve goals that both parties had long claimed to share.  And in each case, Biden has not only hurt the interests of the United States, but reduced the leverage that he might otherwise have had to pursue foreign policy goals unique to his administration.

Uh-oh! They let Biden get in front of a microphone again.  Even ten minutes reading from a teleprompter on a Saturday afternoon was too much for the 45th President of the United States.  I suppose his handlers figured that it was important to mark Senate passage of the nearly $2 trillion pork-laden, blue state-bailing out "stimulus" bill with some presidential remarks.  It may, after all, turn out to be the high point of the Biden presidency, since Senate passage of the rest of the Biden agenda looks iffy, now that Senators Manchin and Sinema have stated their opposition to ending the filibuster.  But how much longer will the American people accept the spectacle of their command-in-chief visibly incapable of coherence?  It's painful to watch even 35 seconds of it.  [Video clip]

Joe Biden's Handlers Let Him Out, and Things Are Not Fine.  For some reason, all this led to Joe Biden's handlers seeing fit to let him out of his bedroom.  What followed was yet more proof that this is a man who isn't fit to be a dog walker, much less the President of the United States.  Here, you try to make sense of this.  [Tweet with video clip]  Biden truly looks barely alive at this point.  His skin is taut, his eyes are squinty, and he once again shows an inability to articulate even the most basic points.  None of his verbal fumbles are due to any supposed stutter.  Keep in mind, there's a teleprompter feeding him lines in a massive font right in front of him.  How in the world is this guy ever going to do a State of the Union address if he can't operate for ten minutes in an environment built to prop him up?

We're Nearing a Serious Immigration Crisis.  Earlier this week, I noted that 40 days of a Biden presidency had taught us that the new administration wasn't as centrist as advertised, but that it was offset by the new president and his team being less competent than advertised.  As the first week of March ends, Democrats at all levels are learning that governing is harder and more complicated than campaigning.  Biden is stumbling into another major crisis of unaccompanied minors crossing our southern border, Andrew Cuomo covered up nursing-home deaths while writing a book about how well he was managing the pandemic, and some of those allegedly "Neanderthal" pandemic decisions by Texas and Mississippi are cropping up in deep blue Connecticut.

Biden isn't bothering going to border, sending officials instead.  Joe Biden seems interested in the growing migrant crisis along the southwest border, but he's just not interested in it enough to see it for himself.  So he's going to send several administration officials to have a look on his behalf.  "President Biden has asked senior members of his team to travel to the border region in order to provide a full briefing to him on the government response to the influx of unaccompanied minors and an assessment of additional steps that can be taken to ensure the safety and care of these children," White House spokesperson Vedant Patel said in a statement reported by The Hill.  But as far as who is actually going and what area of the border they will visit is some sort of national secret because the White House isn't saying, citing 'security' concerns.

Psaki excuses Biden's lack of solo press conference, says he's been too busy with 'historic crises'.  President Joe Biden is reportedly the first president in at least 100 years to not hold a solo press conference within 45 days and counting of stepping into office, and for some inexplicable reason, White House press secretary Jen Psaki is unable to explain why.  Questioned about this discrepancy during a back-and-forth exchange at a White House briefing Friday, Psaki had no real answers — just excuses.

Biden Seemed To Want To Take Some Questions From The Press, Handlers Cut Feed.  President Sock Puppet made an appearance Friday to ramble about COVID and as the rambling subsided and what he was told to say was complete, "I'm gonna ask some questions now and the press is going to leave and I'm gonna get more personal with you if I can," Biden said as the White House cut the feed.  [Video clip]

Joe is Dangerous for a Lot of Reasons, But Mostly Because He Is Not Trying to Get Reelected.  Throughout this screed, I will be using the word "he" meaning Biden and company.  I do that because he is accountable for the actions of the administration, but I don't really believe he is in charge.  Obama is behind the curtain.  But, the kinds of things that are happening in the White House are not things that win another term from the electorate.  If you look at the hard left executive orders he has signed, and the fact that he has signed so many provides fodder for any opposition.  But, the kinds of things that are happening in the White House are not things that win another term from the electorate.  If you look at the hard left executive orders he has signed, and the fact that he has signed so many provides fodder for any opposition.  He has also turned the entire founding principles of this country on its head with the emphasis on equity, versus equality.  And then look at the appointments he has been making.  Sure they are liked by a sliver of hard core lefties, but they are a poke in the eye to most Americans.  As far as popular elections are concerned, he doesn't have a chance unless he does a major turnaround.  That won't happen because that would be admitting he was wrong, which is political suicide.  So why is he not even trying to govern in a way that will be seen as popular?  There are a few possibilities.

As even his media apologists complain, Psaki promises Biden will do a presser — but needs a few more weeks.  The failure of a newly-elected president to face questions from the media for six-and-a-half weeks (and counting) is so weird that even CNN's Brian Stelter is noting it. [...] Stelter is far from alone among Biden allies raising concerns.  Tom Darnell of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution joined many conservatives in citing the worrisome cutoff of Biden's video feed. [...] The cutoff came so abruptly — and obviously unexpectedly — that the sign language translator was left standing there all by her lonesome self next to the White House icon on the video feed.  [Video clip]

Biden will hold his first full press conference by the 'end of the month', White House claims.  President Joe Biden will hold his first presidential press conference by the end of the month, White House press secretary Jen Psaski said Friday [3/5/2021].  'We look forward to holding a full press conference in the coming weeks before the end of the month,' Psaki told reporters at the press briefing. 'And we're working on setting a final date for that and as soon as we do we will let you all know.'  Psaki was asked why Biden had delayed a full Q&A with journalists, bucking a tradition to do one in the early weeks of an administration, which has been around since the Reagan years.

'He's got the nuclear codes': Bannon dismisses humor over Biden's perceived cognitive issues.  President Joe Biden has gone longer than any sitting president in at least 100 years in not holding a press conference, having gone 44 days in office without taking questions from the media.  Former Trump White House aide Stephen Bannon expressed real concern about this on his "War Room Pandemic" podcast.  Saying that Biden "can't take questions," he then pointed out that as president, Biden has "the nuclear codes."  Bannon ran a clip of a White House feed suddenly being cut Wednesday after Biden said he was "happy to take questions" from Democratic lawmakers — the "arrogance" of the administration being seen when they offered no explanation on why.

Joe's Long Decline.  In their desperation for a president they could manipulate and in her zeal to be FLOTUS, the Democrat Party and Jill Biden offered Joe Biden as a sacrificial lamb to gain power — forcing the rest of us to watch, in real time, the disintegration of a human being suffering from dementia. [...] They can prop Joe up, but he increasingly stumbles in interviews, his public appearances are shorter, his press conferences nonexistent, and his jogs up to the dais have been replaced with him tottering off stage [...].  Not only does Kamala escort him off stage after standing legs athwart, masked in black like the Hand of the King, but Jill, the quintessential helicopter spouse, is ever-present, holding his hand.  They call it affection but it is really for backup.  This is astounding behavior for a POTUS and FLOTUS but common among spouses in denial or trying hide what is happening at home.  Jill is the latter — clearly by his side for reinforcement and to whisk him away when the time is right because he won't know when to leave a situation, where to go, or how to extricate himself — as we saw when he asked for questions at a House Democratic Caucus event and the live feed was abruptly terminated.

Trump the Pathfinder.  Joe Biden seems in a rush to wreck the economy, spread hate and division among the people, suppress our First and Second Amendment rights, and enable our potential foreign enemies.  Because he brazenly stole the election, Biden is due none of the courtesy or respect we give to an honestly elected president.  The Senate should reject all of his radical nominations and treaties.  In the Biden era, senators should see their constitutional advice and consent not as merely a veto on seriously unqualified appointments or bad treaties.  The usual standard of allowing the president to choose his appointments is not reasonable under the present circumstances.

Biden tells NASA engineer Indian-Americans are 'taking over the country'.  President Biden on Thursday [3/4/2021] made one of his most head-turning comments since being sworn in when he told an Indian American aerospace engineer that immigrants from the subcontinent are "taking over" the US.  "It's amazing.  Indian-descent Americans are taking over the country — you, my vice president, my speechwriter," Biden told Swati Mohan, NASA's guidance and controls operations lead for the Mars Perseverance rover landing.  Biden made the seemingly tone-deaf effort at levity before telling the NASA group that diversity in the US allows for the betterment of "every single solitary culture."

Video: White House Cuts Biden's Virtual Event Feed as He Says He'll Take Questions.  Joe Biden has not held a press conference in 7 weeks, and people are becoming more and more alarmed at the silence.  It's why eyebrows were raised tonight when Joe Biden's virtual event feed was cut when he said he would take questions.  Was it technical difficulty or more of the same controlled silence from Biden's handlers?  The virtual event included Nancy Pelosi and other key Democrats for a discussion on COVID and other topics.  As soon as Biden finished his comments by asking Democrats to help "restore faith in government," he said he would take questions if that's what he's "supposed to do."

The Editor says...
Ordinarily, the President of the United States doesn't have to ask somebody else what he is supposed to do, unless he's rehearsing for a big state dinner with multiple VIP guests.  Joe Biden is clueless, from one minute to the next, about his own daily agenda.

Psaki's Revelation as to Who Actually Wrote Biden Proclamation Speaks Volumes.  [Scroll down]  Notice how she tried to deflect any criticism of the proclamation leaving out Seuss by saying it was written by the Department of Education.  But it was written in the first person and signed by Joseph R. Biden.  So is she saying he's not the one writing official proclamations with his name on them, written in the first person?  Really.  Tell us more about this.

Montana's Governor Throws Joe Biden's Words Right Back In His Face.  Montana's Governor Greg Gianforte is taking Biden's slam on Texas and turning it political jujitsu.  President Joe Biden didn't like that Texas and Mississipi weren't playing along with the left's apocalyptic treatment of COVID-19 when it lifted its lockdown measures and mask mandate.  In response, Biden called Texas's decision "neanderthal thinking."

The Editor says...
The "neanderthal thinking" quip comes from a man who is famous for sniffing random women and girls, like some kind of baboon.

Hunter Biden probe 'active and ongoing' without White House interference: sources.  The federal investigation into Hunter Biden's "tax affairs" is "active and ongoing," two sources familiar with the status of the probe told Fox News.  The sources told Fox News that those involved in the investigation, which is being run out of the U.S. attorney's office in Delaware, are "treating it seriously."  And as President Biden and members of his administration vowed, sources told Fox News that the U.S. attorney's office in Delaware "has not heard from the White House" or the president's nominee for attorney general, Judge Merrick Garland.

Bipartisan Group Of Senators Seek To Strip Biden Of Certain War Powers.  A bipartisan group of senators on Wednesday [3/3/2021] introduced legislation seeking to rein in war powers from President Joe Biden by repealing two decades-old military authorizations.  The move comes on the heels of Biden's military air strike in Syria on Thursday night without first seeking congressional approval.  The legislation introduced from Sens. Tim Kaine (D-VA) and Todd Young (R-IN) "would repeal the 1991 and 2002 authorizations that cleared the way for a prolonged military conflict in Iraq, culminating in calls from Democrats and Republicans alike to end the so-called 'forever wars' in the region," POLITICO reported.  Kaine emphasized Congress' responsibility in relation to war efforts.  "Last week's airstrikes in Syria show that the executive branch, regardless of party, will continue to stretch its war powers," the Democrat and former VP candidate said.  "Congress has a responsibility to not only vote to authorize new military action, but to repeal old authorizations that are no longer necessary."

The Editor says...
This is extraordinary only because the Democrats in Congress almost never try to reclaim their "war powers" from the Executive Branch while a fellow Democrat is in the White House.

Watch: White House Cuts Video Feed After Joe Biden Asks for Questions.  The White House abruptly cut their video feed of a virtual event Wednesday [3/3/2021] after President Joe Biden asked reporters for questions.  [Video clip]  "I'm happy to take questions if that's what I'm supposed to do, Nance, whatever you want me to do," an uncertain Biden said.  Biden was speaking with members of the House Democrat caucus, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.  The president appeared to look off-camera for direction before his image was replaced with a graphic of the White House.  His final comment was deleted from the video of the event posted to the White House YouTube page.

Biden's Presidency Seems Ready to End.  We're now six weeks or so into the sham presidency of Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr., and already the end of the Biden Era seems near.  A bumbling shell of a man, constantly attended by his wife, Jill, and with the lengthening shadow of his vice president, Kamala Harris, looming in the background, Biden seems incapable of doing anything except signing the slew of executive orders his handlers shove under his nose until at last, exhausted, his team "calls a lid" on his workday and packs him back off upstairs at the White House for a nice lie-down before noontime.  It would be funny if it weren't so tragic — or perhaps it would be tragic if it weren't so funny.  No one has ever mistaken Biden for an intellectual; indeed he has long acted like the bully at the end of an Irish bar, full of bluster and braggadocio, without being able in the slightest to back up his boasts.  The good news is, he's not likely to be there very long.  The bad news is who might replace him[.]

Foreign News Shows Are Now Raising Questions About Joe Biden's Cognitive Issues.  We've been reporting on Joe Biden's issues, Democrats have been trying to avoid talking about them.  But what are some of the folks in the rest of the world thinking about him?  They can see everything we're seeing and see it without having the 24/7 American mainstream media trying to spin it.  At least some of them are seeing it and are worried.  Here's Paul Murray on his show from Australia via Sky News interviewing the NY Post's Miranda Devine and they spoke about their concerns that he was cognitively impaired.  [Video clip]

Blackout: White House curbs press, public access as Biden struggles with public demands of job.  Throughout his presidential campaign and continuing since taking the White House, Joe Biden has promised a transparent approach to press and public relations.  Yet in recent weeks, his administration has closed off — at least for now — several key avenues via which the press and public have for years gained a modicum of transparency, accessibility and accountability from the White House.  These moves to curb press and public access come as President Joe Biden himself has at times appeared to be struggling with the public demands of his job.  Notably, the White House has said that while it will divulge records of individuals who physically visit the White House, it will not be sharing virtual visitor logs.  The Biden administration has relied heavily on virtual meetings out of concerns that COVID-19 might spread in face-to-face gatherings.

The Enthusiasm for Biden's Presidency Appears to Match the Enthusiasm for His Campaign.  Americans' response to Biden's policies and the president himself is lukewarm at best.  Two separate polls, Rasmussen and Harvard/Harris, show that more Americans believe the country is on the wrong track than the right track.  Rasmussen reports that 56% of likely voters feel the nation is headed down the wrong path, and Harvard Harris says a plurality of 47% feel the same, with 43% responding we are headed in the right direction.  According to Rasmussen, for his first month in office, Biden has a Presidential Approval Index rating of -5.  This finding is consistent with the firm's Daily Presidential Tracking Poll, which has never entered positive territory.  On two days in mid-February, those who strongly approved of his performance and strongly disapproved netted out to zero, and that is the highest it has been.  There was a low of -10 on February 26th.  Economic confidence has also declined for the third month in a row following the election.  Be

Biden Gives China Full Access to Control the U.S. National Power Grid.  In his first week in office, President Biden put U.S. security at great risk by giving China autonomous ability to control the national power grid.  Biden issued executive order 13990 in which, buried amid matters purportedly designed to combat climate change, was an anomalous and potentially dangerous provision that suspends a key security measure put in place last May 1 by former President Donald Trump.  Biden's executive order permits China to have full access to the U.S. power grid for 90 days.  Trump's Executive Order 13920 declared an official national emergency with respect to the nation's electric grid and prohibited the acquisition or installation of "any bulk-power electric equipment ... designed, developed, manufactured, or supplied, by persons owned by, controlled by, or subject to the jurisdiction or direction of a foreign adversary."  In sum, Trump forbade the use of grid equipment that is made in China, Russia, or other hostile nations.  Trump's order was a common-sense response to real, proven threats.  Just last year, the Wall Street Journal reported that the United States seized a Chinese-built transformer because officials believed "its electronics had been secretly given malicious capabilities, possibly allowing a distant adversary to monitor or even disable it on command."

10 Big Warning Signs Biden is the 'Missing' President.  [#2] Biden schedule not posted online, White House visitor logs a secret:  "The schedules for the president and vice president aren't posted online," Politico reported.  "The White House comment line is shut down.  There are no citizen petitions on the White House's website.The White House has committed to releasing visitor logs.  But it doesn't plan to divulge the names of attendees of virtual meetings, which are the primary mode of interaction until the coronavirus pandemic eases."  So, who is making the presidential decisions?  Who is Biden meeting with?  Who are others in his administration meeting with?  It's a shroud of secrecy that America's failed press isn't doing enough to penetrate.

Investigate Biden Insiders For Crimes Against The Republic.  It was clear during the 2020 presidential campaign that Joe Biden was a man in decline.  Yet the Democrats ran him as their candidate anyway.  Was their obsession with removing Donald Trump from the White House worth turning over the federal machine, with its nuclear codes and ability to destroy innocent people, to a man whose faculties are failing him?  Biden's cognitive challenges have been obvious to anyone who's willing to make an honest assessment.  In both public appearances and in controlled conditions, he's slurred words, spewed gibberish, stumbled through remarks even with the aid of a teleprompter, and often had the look of a man lost.  His lowlights of 2020 include calling the Declaration of Independence "the thing," appearing to think he was still in the 1970s, 1980s or 1990s running for the U.S Senate, and bumbling basic facts. [...] Biden's caretakers, and the party operatives who continued to support his candidacy when it was obvious the man was failing, should be the targets of a thorough investigation.  They defrauded voters and helped install a puppet, putting the country in jeopardy.

Steve Bannon:  "Joe Biden Hasn't Given a State of the Union Because Joe Biden Can't Stand Up There and Give a State of the Union".  Former Trump Chief Strategist Steve Bannon on Tuesday [3/2/2021] mentioned Joe Biden and the Democrat party's obvious plan to skip over the State of the Union Address this year.  Biden will be the first president in decades to not give a SOTU speech.  We all know why.

Jen Psaki Explains Why American People Do Not See Joe Biden Press Conferences.  The White House head of narrative engineering is questioned about why the current occupant of the executive branch does not give press conferences where he can be asked random questions by the American Media.  Obviously, we already know why the control agents around JoeBama do not allow him to engage with the media without careful controls, previewed questions and scripted answers in advance.  Biden is cognitively impaired.  They have to retain the ruse of competency until they are prepared to replace him on schedule.  [Video clip]

Trump Reloaded.  Conservatives will not disagree with Trump when it comes to the issues he mentioned.  These issues included Biden allowing more immigrants to unlawfully cross our southern border and resuming a so-called "catch-and-release" policy Trump ended, the killing of the Keystone XL pipeline, which has led to lost jobs and higher energy prices, rejoining the Paris climate agreement and withdrawing Trump's restoration of UN sanctions on Iran, and the reversal of his energy policies, which Trump claims caused gasoline prices to soar by "30 percent" since he left office.  He predicted a gallon of gas could eventually cost "$5 $6 $7" dollars unless those policies are reversed.

Psaki's Revelation as to Who Actually Wrote Biden Proclamation Speaks Volumes.  On Tuesday [3/2/2021], Joe Biden issued a proclamation for Read Across America day.  We wrote about it and noted how Biden appeared to cancel Dr. Seuss by not mentioning him when he's been integrally connected to the day in prior presidential proclamations and since the event came into being in 1998.  The event is even on March 2, Seuss' birthday. [...] Jen Psaki was asked why Biden didn't mention Dr. Seuss in the proclamation for the event and her response was troubling on a couple of levels.  [Video clip]

Joe Biden Hosts Video Conference with President of Mexico: 'We Are Equal'.  President Joe Biden said Monday at the White House that the United States and Mexico are "equal" in North America, promising to work closely with the Mexican government.  "In the Obama-Biden administration, we made a commitment that we would look at Mexico as an equal, not as somebody who is south of our border," Biden said in his opening remarks.  "We are equal."

The Editor says...
Obviously it is a lie to say that Mexico and the U.S. are equal.  The Mexicans certainly don't believe it; otherwise, why would it be necessary to put up a fence to keep immigrants out of the U.S.?  Why do so many people climb the fence anyway?

President omits any mention of Dr. Seuss from his Read Across America Day.  President Biden has omitted Dr. Seuss from Read Across America Day, held annually on the children's author's birthday on March 2.  Biden made a proclamation on Monday, declaring Tuesday to be Read Across America Day, but he broke presidential tradition when he left out any mention of Dr. Seuss.  The omission came after a Virginia school system dropped the iconic children's books because of 'racial undertones'.

The Editor says...
President* Biden only reads what the teleprompter says.  If any mention of Dr. Seuss was omitted, it wasn't omitted by Biden.

This Administration Is Already a Failure.  Obama's administration was a policy disaster, but it was at least a competently implemented disaster.  The Zombie Administration is a disaster in both form and substance.  What has this desiccated, old weirdo achieved in his six weeks of semiconsciousness in the Oval Office?  Well, there's putting tens of thousands of Americans out of jobs, including union guys who voted for him.  There's telling the American people that their kids can't go to school because public school teachers take priority over children because of science or something.  There's another war in the Middle East.  Those are kind of accomplishments, but not really good ones.  His administration had someone named "Ducklo" who was mean to women.  He had another who wants to be a woman and who wants to let your little boys be surgically turned into women.  And Neera Tanden's confirmation was blocked because she was a woman and totally not because she was an inept loudmouth.  If this is normalcy, what's a freak show look like?

Crazy Old Biden and the Countdown to Kamala.  President Joe Biden is a shadow of his former self.  Long gone is the aggressive, pugnacious, and partisan Democrat who mistreated Supreme Court justice Clarence Thomas in the latter's confirmation hearings.  Today, Americans see a president who is clearly mentally diminished and is getting worse on a daily basis.  During the campaign, Biden refused to submit to a cognitive test. [...] Biden refused to take a test because it would show he is in mental decline.  His last medical report was issued in December of 2019.  While his doctor, Kevin O'Connor of George Washington University, labeled Biden "vigorous" and fit to successfully perform as president, other experts did not share that view.  Dr. David Scheiner, the former personal physician for Barack Obama, claimed that Biden is "not a healthy guy."  In fact, U.S. congressman Ronny Jackson (R-Texas), the former White House physician for President Obama and President Donald Trump, said Biden "does not have the mental capacity, the cognitive ability to serve as our commander-in-chief and head of state."

Priest: Joe Biden Is 'Most Aggressively Anti-Catholic President in History'.  Joe Biden is the "most aggressively anti-Catholic President in history" despite his outward show of piety, Virginia priest and director of Human Life International, Father Jerry Pokorsky, states.  "For most of his political life — from his consistent pro-abortion record to his officiating at a gay wedding in 2016 — despite his Catholic affiliation and public pious practices, Joe Biden has magnified and institutionalized countless major violations of the Ten Commandments," Father Pokorsky writes in an essay Friday [2/26/2021].  "The hypocrisy rivals that of the chief priests and Pharisees and is worthy of the same condemnation," the priest declares.  "Indeed, Biden is the most aggressively anti-Catholic President in history."  The reason for the harsh assessment of Biden's record is the dichotomy between his outward show of piety on the one hand and his record of supporting evil on the other, Pokorsky notes, adding that "Biden's habitual and unapologetic sinful acts are on full display."

Emoting and Oprahfying, Jill Biden leaves out a few details about her divorce.  [Scroll down]  She's a cold, calculating political creature posing as the queen of compassion.  She's targeting the pop press to better reach the low-information voters.  Now she's putting out a phony story, for her and her husband's own benefit.  Apparently, she does this sort of political work a lot.  When a key was made for one of Hunter Biden's foundation offices in Washington, the give-to list included a China state-linked business executive pal and... Jill Biden.  She knows what she is doing.  Anyone ask her about the teachers' unions keeping schools closed?  She's made much hay billing herself as a teacher.  Meanwhile, the ex-husband says he's writing a book about this so-called "devout Catholic" who eventually became his ex.  If he does, the sleazy history of the Bidens will once again come to the fore.

Obviously it will never happen.
36 days and counting:  When will Biden hold first solo press conference?  It was 27 days for President Donald Trump and only 20 for his predecessor, President Barack Obama.  But 36 days after he was inaugurated, President Biden has yet to appear before journalists for a solo press conference.  The delay has irritated members of the White House press corps, from CNN to Fox News, and raised questions about Biden's campaign promise to restore respect for the press after four years of Trump's "fake news" attacks.

No State of the Union Address, No President?  If Joe Biden gives a State of the Union address sometime this March, it will be late, based on precedence, but still in accordance with an 87-year tradition.  All of which brings up the question: if Joe Biden does not deliver or cannot deliver a State of the Union address, is he truly the president?  In 38 days, he has not held a full press conference.  Each of us who frequent and read the articles has known for quite a while that poor old Joe lacks the cognitive capability to handle the job.  He is a mere puppet to a cabal of Leftists who want to irrevocably reshape America, and not in a good way.  So, the question arises, if Joe Biden does not deliver a State of the Union address this March, or, let's say, even in February 2022, given that he lasts long enough, does anyone seriously believe he is the functioning president of the United States?

The Editor says...
If Biden make a State of the Union Address, I predict it will be pre-recorded, heavily edited, and then held up as proof that Biden's still mentally healthy, which he is not.

Biden Lied And 105,334 People Died.  uring one of his presidential debates last year when about 220,000 people had died from COVID-19, Joe Biden said that "anyone who's responsible for that many deaths should not remain as president of the United States of America."  So should Joe be looking for another job, now that more than 100,000 have died in just the two months that he's been president?  Biden said, after all, that he had a plan on "day one" as president to tackle the disease.  He was going to move "heaven and earth" to save lives, etc., etc.  But since Jan. 20, there have been 105,334 deaths attributed to the coronavirus as of Saturday, according to the COVID Tracking Project.  That means that one-fifth of all the COVID-19 deaths have occurred just since Biden took office.  Now Biden is busy casting blame for why the disease continues to claim lives, while repeatedly lying about what he inherited from President Donald Trump in order to make his own efforts seem more heroic.

Joe Biden Speaks in Houston, What Follows Should Make You Question Everything.  Earlier today, I wrote on Joe and Jill Biden doing yet another joint interview in which the latter basically asserted herself as the president's puppet master.  Yet, that's far from the only disturbing episode that Joe Biden has had lately.  After waiting nearly two weeks to respond, he finally left the bunker and headed down to Texas to do a photo-op in the wake of a massive winter storm.  A normal president would have been there meeting with FEMA officials and surveying damage a week prior, but we obviously don't have a normal president.  Therefore, instead of getting a public address when it mattered, we get this far too late performance that should leave you questioning everything.  [Video clip]

Someone From the Biden Administration Bombed Syria — White House Silent.  As of approximately 8 hours after the bombing of Syria, there is no statement from the White House on their official website or from the JoeBama spokespeople.  The cognitively disconnected pretend president is being cited for authorizing the bombing.  However, there's just as much reason to believe he thought he was ordering more jello pudding before nap-time.  The preferred narrative term "Iran-backed" is also so disengenous it is quite silly.

Progressives are Having a Meltdown Because Joe Biden Bombed Syria.  Well, it looks like we're going back to war again.  Joe Biden decided to bomb Syria last night.  I mean, the minimum wage cannot be included in the $1.9 trillion stimulus bill, the $2,000 relief check promise has been walked back, his OMB nominee, Neera Tanden, is about to go down in flames, and COVID deaths surpassed 500,000.  I guess it was time to bomb something, right?  Nothing gets America more riled up and united than when we bomb something, but after a decade of war, thousands of lives lost, and trillions spent on these nation-building projects in the Middle East that have only caused more instability, we're done.  Oh, and it's also allowed Iran to increase its regional clout and they're about to inch closer to acquiring nuclear weapons so — America is back, huh.

Ignored by Fake News Media:  Joe Biden Is Completely Lost in Texas Even with His Handler in Tow.  Joe Biden had another disastrous day Friday in Texas.  Of course, the liberal media once again hid this from their audience.  Biden traveled to Houston, Texas with his handler, Dr. Jill, but she couldn't save Joe from his mid-stage dementia.  Joe was confused and lost and even admitted it during his brief speech.  [Video clip]

President Biden Had Another 'Senior Moment'.  The mainstream media may be ignoring the president's cognitive decline, but it's still there.  On Saturday [2/27/2021], President Biden attempted to speak extemporaneously, butchering a long list of names in the process before expressing shock and bewilderment at his own forgetfulness.  "... and Representatives Shir-Shirley Jackson Lee, Al Greene, Sylvia Garcia, Lizzie Penelley, ugh, uh, excuse me, Pannill, and, ugh, what am I doing here?" Biden wondered aloud.  (It's Sheila Jackson Lee).  The president had to stop and look at his notes.  "I'm gonna lose track here," Biden said, after already losing track.  "Mayor Turner, Judge Hidalgo.  Thank you all for welcoming us," Biden added.

Jill and Joe Biden Do Yet Another Joint Interview, and It's Really Awkward.  [Scroll down]  Yet, more and more, it looks like Harris is being pushed into the background while Jill Biden is really pulling the strings.  Not only does she routinely act as the President's crutch during interviews, she's now interrupting him to articulate policy in language that makes it seem a lot like she's in charge.  This is some awkward, awkward stuff.  [Video clip]  There's being a supportive First Lady, and then there's the assertiveness with which Jill Biden shuts her husband down in order to explain what "we" are doing as an administration on immigration policy.  Further, why is she even there?  Have you ever seen a president do so many joint interviews?  Barack Obama certainly didn't drag Michelle to almost every media interview he did.  That would leave anyone with the ability to think critically asking what exactly is going on here.  Jill Biden sure appears to be operating as her husband's caregiver at this point.  Why is he unable to explain the immigration policies that are ostensibly his creation?  I can speculate with a reasonable expectation of accuracy that Joe Biden is simply incapable of explaining his policies on any given day.

As Biden Governs by Executive Fiat, States and Courts Begin Resisting.  The newly installed Biden administration made it clear during its first month in power that it doesn't expect to get much of its progressive agenda passed legislatively through the U.S. Congress.  Instead of working with lawmakers in the House and Senate to introduce new bills to enact his agenda, President Joe Biden unleashed a tidal wave of executive actions and orders, setting a historical precedent by signing 25 orders in just nine days, from Jan. 20 to Jan. 28.  He also signed eight executive memorandums in that period, which are official directions made to the federal government.  Continuing into the month of February, Biden has gone on to sign another five executive orders, bringing his total since taking the oath of office to 30.  That's an astonishing and unprecedented exercise of executive power.  The previous six presidents had signed a combined total of 22 executive orders in their first months in office.

Embarrassing excuse offered for Biden's vanishing State of the Union Address.  All of a sudden, here it is the end of February and there is no State of the Union (SOTU) address scheduled for President Biden. [...] Jimmy Carter, a failed one-term president, actually skipped his in the year of his inauguration, missing an opportunity to lay out his plan for the presidency and the nation, with blanket television coverage, plus plenty of pomp and circumstance.  And look what happened to him. [...] The lickspittle media are rushing in with "fact checks" to assure the nation that there is no requirement or deadline for a SOTU speech.  But is awkward, especially considering the rising doubts about Biden's mental and physical state. [...] Democrats know Biden is not all there.  That's why a bunch of them want to take away the power for him to launch a nuclear strike.

The Shame of Joe Biden.  Politicians are not, in general, renowned for honesty.  Spin is universal and exaggeration goes with the territory.  But actual lying — [...] about an important public issue — is relatively uncommon.  Unless we are talking about Joe Biden.  During the campaign, Biden absurdly alleged that President Trump had mishandled the COVID epidemic, and therefore had murdered the several hundred thousand Americans who allegedly died from that disease.  The theory was that if Trump had done something differently [...] the U.S. would have been the only country on Earth with zero Wuhan deaths.  Reporters went along with Biden's fantasy.  Since his inauguration, Biden has continued his assault on his predecessor by claiming, repeatedly, that little was going on with regard to vaccinations until he took office, and that the Trump administration "had no plan" to effectuate vaccinations.  This, too, is a [...] lie.  Biden repeated it today [2/25/2021].

If nobody's home, who called out the Syria airstrike?  Seven weeks into his presidency, senile Joe Biden surprised many by calling in a Syria airstrike.  Which was puzzling, given that there seemed to be no immediate threat.  And that's just for starters.  It was billed as a strike on pro-Iran militants stationed in the region, and in retaliation for an earlier strike of theirs against a U.S. installation.  Which seems a little eyebrow-raising, given Biden's eagerness to make nice with the mullahs.  Even that explanation has skeptics who call the whole thing laughable.  There are also those who think Biden is finishing up what President Obama started.  You know, for the legacy thing.  Favor to a pal.

Sen. Lindsey Graham to Newsmax TV: 'I Don't Think Biden's in Charge'.  President Joe Biden was a moderate senator, but the administration implementing all these progressive policies in his first weeks in office shows it just is not him in charge, according to Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., on Newsmax TV.  "I like Joe Biden, but the agenda is AOC [Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y.], [House Speaker Nancy] Pelosi, [Senate Majority Leader Chuck] Schumer, Sen. Bernie Sanders," Graham told "Greg Kelly Reports" of his former fellow senator Biden.  "So, no, I don't think Joe Biden's in charge."  Graham told host Greg Kelly, progressive policies on immigration, unwinding former President Donald Trump's Remain in Mexico policy for those seeking asylum, ceasing the border wall and the Keystone XL Pipeline, and a $1.9 trillion "liberal wish list" that has "nothing to do with COVID" are not something a moderate Biden would have supported as a senator.

Can You Translate What Biden Is Trying to Say Here?  Earlier this week, Joe Biden appeared to have another one of his signature verbal nonsense moments while attempting to memorialize those who succumbed to COVID-19. [...] It's not as bad as when, back in October, mere days away from the election, Biden said, "I'll lead an effective strategy to mobilize trunalimunumaprzure," but it's still pretty bad.

Biden Randomly Stops Talking Mid Sentence And Gives Camera Blank Stare.  On Monday [2/22/2021] during a speech at the White House, President Joe Biden suffered from another brain freeze when he completely jumbled his speech.  The comments were made at a ceremony for the 500,000 Americans who have died from Coronavirus, 100,000 of which have happened in the very little time Biden has been in office.  Biden couldn't even read what he was supposed to say from the teleprompter:  "The only way to spare more pain and more loss, the only way — these millstones no longer mark our national mourning — these milestones, I should say, no longer, no longer moke — mark our national mourning."  [Video clip]

House Democrats Want Biden To Relinquish Sole Authority To Launch Nuclear Weapons.  Dozens of House Democrats are calling on President Biden to relinquish sole control over the country's nuclear arsenal and the ability to launch a strike using those weapons.  Politico reports that the Democrats, led by Rep. Jimmy Panetta (CA) and Rep. Ted Lieu (CA), wrote a letter warning that "vesting one person" with the authority to initiate a nuclear war "entails real risks."  "While any president would presumably consult with advisors before ordering a nuclear attack, there is no requirement to do so," the letter explains.  "The military is obligated to carry out the order if they assess it is legal under the laws of war," they add.  "Under the current posture of U.S. nuclear forces, that attack would happen in minutes."

The Editor says...
This is a trap for the next Republican president, who will find it very difficult to regain the sole responsibility for the use of atomic weapons, after the Democrats gave it away in 2021.  If it is not a trap, and the Democrats only want to take away the keys because Biden is undeniably senile, then why did they nominate the man last year?

Biden's "Teleprompter" Fails Again, Prompting Series of Verbal Gaffes, No MSM Coverage.  Joe Biden is not well.  That marks one of several dozen times I've opened an article in that fashion or similar, yet those words have become no less relevant with time.  The former VP is only getting worse and that was on full display again yesterday [2/23/2021].  Biden made an embarrassing blunder during his first foreign meeting with Canada's Justin Trudeau. [...] Of course not one of the mainstream media reported about this.  The "leader of the free world" can't go through one video appearance without making false or misspelled statements.

House Dems urge Biden to give up sole control of nuclear codes as mental status concerns brew.  Dozens of House Democrats have sent a letter to President Joe Biden urging him to relinquish sole control over the country's nuclear weapons codes, citing "real risks" that could lead to an accidental or rogue launch.  "...Vesting one person with this authority entails real risks," said the letter, which was led by California Rep. Jimmy Panetta.  "Past presidents have threatened to attack other countries with nuclear weapons or exhibited behavior that caused other officials to express concern about the president's judgment."  "While any president would presumably consult with advisors before ordering a nuclear attack, there is no requirement to do so," the letter further states.  "The military is obligated to carry out the order if they assess it is legal under the laws of war.  Under the current posture of U.S. nuclear forces, that attack would happen in minutes."

Biden revokes Trump order to cut funding from New York City, Portland and Seattle 'anarchist' havens after BLM protests.  President Joe Biden on Wednesday [2/124/2021] formally revoked a series of presidential orders and memorandum signed by Donald Trump, including one that sought to cut funding from several cities he deemed 'anarchist' havens and another mandating that federal buildings should be designed in a classical aesthetic.  Since taking office last month, Biden has revoked dozens of Trump orders and issued dozens more of his own as he's sought to target foundational aspects of Trump's legacy and promote aspect of his own agenda without going through Congress.  The latest slate of revocations targeted a grab-bag of issues, including a few that Trump signed in his last months in office.

'Joe Biden Can Barely Form a Sentence in Between Naps,' Situation 'Getting Scary'.  Sean Hannity called-out the mainstream media mob and the Democratic Party Tuesday night for their "protection program" surrounding Joe Biden; saying the President can "barely form a sentence in between naps."  "We turn to some disturbing news surrounding Joe Biden.  Joe's now struggling to even form sentences and speak in a coherent way.  Earlier he tried to use a 'cheat sheet' for some remarks...  What's on the note card Joe?  Your name?  Address?  Contact information?" asked Hannity.  "This is now getting scary.  He's supposed to be our Commander-in-Chief.  This is the toughest job in the world.  Joe seemingly can barely form a sentence in between naps," he added.  [Video clip]

Apparently, Hunter Biden's life was even more sordid than we knew.  I'm sure that there are some Americans, somewhere, who voted for Joe Biden because the media assured them that Joe is an honest, decent family man — all of which is patently untrue.  Because they were unaware that the only thing "abnormal" about the Trump administration was the relentless attacks from the Democrat party and the media (but I repeat myself), they thought Biden would bring an era of peace and even honor.  No wonder, then, that the media and the tech tyrants corrupted the election by quashing any reports about Biden's sleazy son Hunter.  And now, it turns out that Hunter was even worse than we realized.  Those people who paid attention to conservative media outlets and learned of Hunter Biden's laptop, knew that Hunter Biden functioned as a conduit by which foreign governments, most notably Ukraine and China, funneled millions of dollars to the "Big Guy," aka then-Vice President Joe Biden.  They also knew that Hunter Biden is one of the sleaziest men in America.

Hunter Biden was living with his brother Beau's widow Hallie while sending raunchy texts and FaceTiming in the shower with her married sister.  Hunter Biden had a controversial affair with his brother Beau's grieving widow Hallie, while exchanging raunchy texts, 'partying', and even renting a house with her sister, can exclusively reveal.  Hallie Biden's older sister, Elizabeth Secundy, who was recently separated from her husband of 15 years, referred to Hunter as her 'prince' and told him she loved him, in a series of text messages dating back to 2016.  The pair's relationship was revealed in files and emails recovered from Hunter's laptop, the contents of which became public last year after it was abandoned at a Delaware computer shop.  While Hunter has promised to reveal details of his personal life and struggles with alcohol and drugs in his upcoming memoir, Beautiful Things, it is unclear whether Hunter has included details of his relationship with Secundy.

Biden Kicks Texas To The Curb — Denies Statewide Major Disaster Declaration Request.  Governor Greg Abbott requested statewide designation for major disaster relief from President Biden.  Biden denied the statewide designation and only approved some counties in Texas, not all of them.  Abbott asked for a declaration that covered the entire state because the winter storm knocked out power and heat throughout the state, as well as leaving millions of Texans without water.  Texas has 254 counties.  Biden approved only 77 counties for disaster relief.  The governor calls it an important first step but it falls far short of what Texas officials requested.  Biden signed the declaration late Friday.  It covers much of the Texas population.  The counties covered include the cities of Houston, Dallas, San Antonio, and Austin.  The assistance can include grants for temporary housing, home repairs, and low-cost loans.

The Editor says...
Texas is a deep-red state, except for Houston, Dallas, San Antonio, El Paso, and Austin.  By sheer coincidence, these are the only cities Joe Biden is inclined to help.

Joe Biden Held Hostage — Day 34.  While we expected that a Biden presidency would have nothing to do with Joe Biden, I certainly didn't expect it to look like this.  Is it just me, or do his executive order signing ceremonies look like creepy hostage situation videos?
  •   Prisoner sitting at a desk — check
  •   Prisoner appears disoriented and confused — check
  •   Prisoner reading a statement clearly written by someone else — check
  •   Masked captors flanking the prisoner to keep him on script — check
It's important to note that in these situations the power doesn't reside in the guy seated behind the desk — regardless of his title or any trappings of importance.  The power is held by the masked captors lurking the background.  The power brokers in the Harris/Biden administration are San Fran Nan and Not-Mrs. Brown Harris.  The most liberal former senator, and the most unhinged current congresswoman are the real shot callers in the executive branch now.  This raises another question, why would two people from the legislative branch be so anxious to circumvent the legislature?  Joe has signed something like 50 executive orders in his first month in office.  This puts him on pace for the most executive orders of any president in history.  This is an affront to representative governance.

Why media coverage of Biden is nothing like Trump's... nor Obama's.  [Scroll down]  No, the real reason is much more troubling.  They aren't covering Biden or his policies because they're being instructed to keep it all off the public's radar by their handlers.  Go ahead and put on your tinfoil hats if you'd like to at this point, but it's as crystal clear to me now as anything I've written about in weeks.  Whoever is pulling the various strings of their mainstream media puppets, they do not want the public to know the direction the Biden administration is taking the nation.  Joe Biden is not a leader.  He's a tool for the powers and principalities to quietly usher in their nefarious plans.  Whether it's the Chinese Communist Party, the United Nations, George Soros, Bill Gates, the New World Order, the Deep State, or a combination of all-of-the-above, they groomed Biden's entire candidacy and force-fed him to the American people through the most massive voter fraud the nation, and possibly the world, has ever seen. [...] Sleepy Joe Biden is the perfect vessel through which The Great Reset and the other plans of the globalist elites can be brought to America unnoticed.  His plan to "build back better" is not and never has been his plan at all.  He's a pawn, and that should terrify us all.

Start the Impeachment!  Joe Biden Admits Storming the Senate Chamber at Age 21 and Being Arrested.  In 2007 Joe Biden told David Letterman that he was arrested for trespassing in the US Capitol and taking a seat inside the Senate Chamber at age 21.  Joe Biden bragged about the alleged event on Letterman. [...] Today the US government including the DOJ and FBI are ruining people's lives for walking through the US Capitol on January 6th.  The FBI has arrested over 250 people so far in connection with the Capitol raid on January 6th.  A vast majority committed no violence and were just walking around inside the US Capitol building.

Biden Falsely Labels Police, Military Veterans As 'White Supremacists'.  Joe Biden has accused military veterans and retired police officers of so-called "white supremacy" in a grievous insult to servicemen and women.  "The impact of former military, former police officers, on the growth of white supremacy in some of these groups... it is a bane on our existence... these guys and woman are, in fact, demented," he stated during a CNN Town Hall.  Biden's remarks sparked fury among veteran and police groups who said they didn't serve and protect this country to become subject to a political smear campaign.  In that same interview, Biden falsely labeled patriotic groups as "domestic terrorists" while ignoring the threats posed by groups like Antifa and Black Lives Matter.

Biden Using Christian Religion as 'Cover for Extreme Policies': Pro-Life Activist Rose.  Lila Rose, founder and president of the pro-life organization Live Action, says Americans need to be aware of the serious deception by the Biden administration regarding abortion.  "Most Americans are not aware of the pro-abortion extremism of the administration," Rose said in an interview with NTD News on Feb. 17.  "And when they do become aware, they're deeply concerned."  Rose said that she and her organization are immensely concerned about the agenda of the Biden administration, which is "even more pro-abortion than when he served as vice president under President Barack Obama." [...] While Biden professes to be a "devout Catholic," a religion that carries clear and repeated messages that protect the sanctity of life, Rose says she thinks he's using the religion as a cover for his radical abortion agenda.  "The president is using the Christian religion as a cover for his extreme policies and his promotion of abortion.  And that is simply the worst kind of lie.  It's the worst kind of violence, it's what needs to be exposed."

The GOP's 2024 Race Will Be Brutal And It's a Fight We Need to Have.  President * has stumbled out of the gate with zero wins in his first month.  He signed a bunch of executive orders, all of which the next GOP president should undo on Day One.  His $2,000 promise has already been broken.  He is botching COVID, and parents are getting sick of indolent public school teachers demanding to be paid for not doing their jobs, instead of their usual demand to be paid for not doing their jobs well.  His global warming agenda has been frozen by the Texas arctic nightmare.  And also, people are noticing that he's a creepy weirdo.  He's literally done nothing but fail, and this despite the licensed, professional journalists of journalism explaining away his stumbles [...]

Joe Biden Met With The Chairman Of The Chinese Propaganda Unit Seeking To 'Influence Foreign Governments To Adopt Beijing's Preferred Polices.  On a 2013 visit to China, President Biden met with the chairman of the Chinese Communist Party's top propaganda effort that seeks to "influence foreign governments and other actors to take actions or adopt positions supportive of Beijing's preferred policies," The National Pulse can reveal.  A previously unreported-on press release from a U.S.-based Chinese Communist Party Consulate reveals that then-Vice President Biden participated in a welcome reception with Chinese Communist Party Vice President Li Yuanchao featuring Tung Chee-hwa.

Biden Fires Chicago U.S. Attorney Hot on the Trail of Democratic Corruption.  You've probably never heard of Chicago's U.S. attorney John Lausch.  For the last two years, he has been going after some of the biggest, most powerful Democrats in the state of Illinois. [...] In fact, it's believed Lausch has targeted some other high-profile Democratic politicians in other investigations.  It's a target-rich environment and Democrats in Illinois have gotten extremely nervous about who Lausch will go after next.  Now it appears, that bringing down corrupt Democratic politicians will be the job of the next U.S. attorney.  Along with 56 other U.S. attorneys named by former president Trump, Lausch will lose his job — fired by Joe Biden.  "It's tradition," said Biden supporters.  This is true.  But it's also "tradition" to keep prosecutors in place who were pursuing high-profile cases.  Lausch certainly qualified under that criteria.  Biden's firing hasn't gone down well in Illinois.

Mario Kart Playing President Has Been MIA on Winter Superstorm, and the Latest News Makes It Even Worse.  With Texas and the South being slammed by a once in a generation winter storm, you'd expect the President of the United States to be intimately involved in the response, and I don't mean just signing an emergency order.  After Hurricane Harvey, Donald Trump flew straight to Texas to meet with FEMA and show leadership over the situation.  Even Barack Obama did the same following Hurricane Sandy and other natural disasters that happened during his two terms.  Yet, not only has Joe Biden not made any attempt to go to Texas (or anywhere in the South that was hit hard), he hasn't even given a public address on the situation, nor has he done a public appearance with FEMA officials back in Washington.  In fact, he spent the first part of last week, while the storm was hammering away, playing Mario Kart at Camp David.

Meet the New President of the United States ... Barack Obama.  Republicans, conservatives and capitalists are sick right about now.  We're in shock.  We can't believe Donald Trump is no longer president.  We can't believe Americans voted against the greatest economy — perhaps in history — the greatest jobs picture ever, the greatest improvement in middle-class incomes ever and the greatest economic comeback ever, which Trump produced after the COVID-19 lockdown and economic collapse.  Remember 33% gross domestic product in Q3 2020?  That was the biggest number in history.  Who would vote against all that?  You'd have to be self-hating and suicidal.  We also can't believe America voted for a feeble old man with dementia who mumbles, who clearly signs executive orders without knowing what he's signing and who says "we didn't have" a vaccine before he became president, even though he got his two vaccine shots before he became president.  We all believe the election was rigged and stolen.  We all know the feeble old man now called "president" would be more at home in an assisted living home than the White House.  That man can't be our new president.  I have news for my fellow conservatives, Republicans, capitalists and patriots:  Joe Biden is not president.  He's a puppet.  Yes, we have a new president.  His name is ... Barack Obama.

The Editor says...
Maybe so, but even during Obama's first two terms, he only did what he was told by Valerie Jarrett.

Censored Hunter Biden Laptop Story Comes Back Around to Bite Twitter.  The former Delaware computer repair shop owner who gave Rudi Giuliani and the FBI emails alleged to be from Hunter Biden's laptop has again sued Twitter for defamation.  John Paul Mac Isaac claimed that Twitter defamed him by censoring a New York Post story over its alleged use of "hacked materials."  Due to Twitter's suppression of the story, Americans branded Mac Isaac a hacker, costing him business opportunities and ultimately leading him to shut down his business, the lawsuit claims.  "Plaintiff is not a hacker and the information obtained from the computer does not constitute hacked materials because Plaintiff lawfully gained access to the computer, first with the permission of its owner, Biden, and then, after Biden failed to retrieve the recovered data despite Plaintiff's reuses, in accordance with the Mac Shop's abandoned property police," the lawsuit claims.  "Plaintiff, as a direct result of Defendant Twitter's actions and statements, is now widely considered a hacker."

Hunter Biden Laptop Finder is Now Suing Twitter for Defamation.  John Paul Mac Isaac, whose discovery of a laptop that by virtually all accounts belongs to Hunter Biden, the son of current president Joe Biden, is suing Twitter for defamation.  "John Paul Mac Isaac has sued Twitter for defamation in connection with the social media giant's censorship last year of materials gleaned from a laptop that President Joe Biden's son, Hunter, left at a computer repair shop," Just the News reported.  "Isaac owned the computer repair shop in Delaware called The Mac Shop, and on April 12, 2019 was asked to 'recover information from damaged Mac computers allegedly owned by Hunter Biden," the lawsuit said, as pointed out by Just the News.

Bishops Whack Biden Over 'Equality Act': Goes Against 'Best Medical Advice' and 'Deeply-Held Moral, Religious Convictions'.  Of all the things Joe Biden congratulates himself about, his support for women's rights, and his Catholic faith are at least in the top five if not the top two spots.  He fancies himself a "devout Catholic," and like all good Democrats, he has railed against the Republican "war on women" for decades.  In both cases, Biden's actions consistently belie his words. [...] It takes neither a staunch conservative nor a proverbial rocket scientist to see that the Equality Act is anything but equal in respect to women and the unborn.  On the contrary, it is perfectly clear that the legislation is specifically, if not solely designed to cater to the LGBTQ community — at the expense of women and unborn children.

Voters agree with Don Jr.: Biden is a 'puppet of the radical left'.  The media portrayed President Biden as a centrist unifier during the campaign, a regular "Amtrak Joe" who took the train to work.  But after he has unleashed liberal policies and executive orders pushing agendas favored by unions, environmentalists, abortion advocates, and anti-gun groups, a majority of voters now agree that he is a "puppet of the left."  In the latest Rasmussen Reports survey, 54% agreed with the phrase used by Donald Trump Jr. in a recent [Washington Examiner] interview.  Some 40% disagreed.  Trump, whose book Liberal Privilege:  Joe Biden And The Democrats' Defense Of The Indefensible is one of the only ones critical of Biden, said the president is now shocking people by showing his true liberal colors.  "We're more popular with the base now than we were on Election Day, I think because they realize how bad it is.  They realize the tech censorship, which we talked about extensively.  They realize that the lies that the media sold them ... they realize that they have been played.  They realize that they've been sold in a bill of goods that was nonsense.  Joe Biden's not the moderate nice guy that they made him out to be.  He's a puppet of the radical Left, and he's their dream guy because they'll sign whatever they put in front of them, and he doesn't know the difference," Trump told us.

Europe Applauds Biden's Surrender of America First Policies in G7 Speech.  President Joe Biden on Friday [2/19/2021] rejected the "America First" policies that started no wars and brought about Middle East peace agreements, objectives that had not been achieved for decades under either political party.  Biden's G7 speech drew praise from foreign nations.  "Biden gave exactly the speech that many Europeans wanted to hear — an America that pats you on the shoulders, that doesn't criticize or demand," Germany's influential Der Spiegel magazine wrote.

Joe Biden brings America back to bad Obama days.  As winners never fail to remind losers, elections have consequences.  But rarely is there a single day where consequences pack as much wallop as Friday, where the irrationality of Joe Biden's policies came into full view.  From the border with Mexico, where the new administration started opening the doors to at least 25,000 migrants seeking asylum, to the Mideast tinderbox, where it moved to rejoin the misbegotten Iran nuke deal, the new president appears fixated by the desire to turn back the clock to 2016.  It's as if Biden has been seized by a sentimental longing to try to make the world like it was when the Obama-Biden administration left office.  Unfortunately, "The Way We Were" is a nice song but not much of a guide to the future.

Forget it, Joe.  During the CNN town hall in Milwaukee earlier this week, the gentleman from Madame Tussauds gave a short discourse on China and human rights. [...] I would only point out the cultural relativism that lies at the core of Democratic orthodoxy.  China has their thing and we have ours.  Their thing involves tyranny and abuse of human rights.  Our thing involves the condemnation of same.  When Biden says Xi "gets it," we see the tribute that idiocy pays to duplicity.  Xi "gets" Biden, all right.  Xi has Biden sized up as a complete and utter fool telling him that he has to say certain things, but don't worry.  They are obligatory and formulaic.  By the same token, Biden "gets" Xi.  He understands that, in light of Chinese history according to Joe, Xi's gotta do what Xi's gotta do.

Is the Biden honeymoon already over?  [Scroll down]  Given their predilection for wiping away more than $1.5 trillion in outstanding student loan debt, one would assume these Democrats were absolutely giddy when Joe Biden entered the Oval Office on January 20.  However, in a plot twist of epic proportions, President Biden has pivoted from his original position of somewhat supporting their dreams of canceling student loan debt to pouring a bucket of cold water all over it.  Biden recently held his first townhall event since becoming president, and he addressed the $1.5 trillion question with an answer that certainly didn't sit well with his fellow Democrats.  When asked if he would support the plan to cancel $50,000 per borrower in student loan debt, Biden responded, "I will not make that happen."  Unsurprisingly, Biden's answer was met with a mighty backlash by many in his own party.

Australian Media Runs Segment on Joe Biden's Dementia! — Something the Poisonous US Media Still Lies About.  Australian reporter Cory Bernardi is the first mainstream host to report on Joe Biden's obvious dementia that is apparent to anyone paying attention.  No one in the US liberal media is strong enough to point this out — President Biden is out to lunch.  He is in an escalating stage of cognitive decline.  Bernardi shared this on Friday [2/19/2021], "Such was the hatred of Donald Trump by the partisan and poisonous mainstream media that they chose not to highlight anything that may have derailed a Biden victory.  Even now after he's been sworn in many are still refusing to speak the truth."

Biden Grovels to Iran's Terrorists.  Just days after Iranian-backed terrorists launched an attack on Americans in Northern Iraq, killing a civilian contractor and wounding a U.S. soldier, the Biden administration has issued no punishment.  In fact, President Biden is rewarding the behavior by initiating talks with the regime, pulling off sanctions and green lighting new cash flows bound to fuel terrorism.  "The Biden administration said Thursday evening that it is ready to begin conducting diplomacy with Iran, an announcement that has rankled Iran hawks in and out of Congress who see the new White House as rushing into talks with a regime that continues to sponsor terror attacks against U.S. forces and build its nuclear weapons program," the Washington Free Beacon reports.  For the past four years, Iran has been isolated thanks to the Trump administration's maximum pressure campaign.

Biden says he was 'professor' — touting $1 million gig with few visits.  President Biden on Friday [2/19/2021] told a virtual summit of world leaders that he was a "professor" as of two years ago — touting a role that previously drew controversy because he was paid handsomely for nine reported visits to campus.  Biden earned nearly $1 million from the University of Pennsylvania from 2017 to 2019, despite appearing rarely at the Ivy League school.  Biden said in a livestreamed address to the Munich Security Conference, "Two year ago, as you pointed out, when I last spoke in Munich, I was a private citizen.  I was a professor, not an elected official."

Biden Administration Moves Goalposts Again, Now Says Schools Need Better Ventilation To Combat Asthma, Mold Before Reopening.  The Biden administration continues to provide numerous shifting answers on whether schools should reopen and how soon.  Now the administration wants ventilation systems in schools not just to combat COVID-19, but also asthma and mold.  Much of the confusion surrounding Biden's education plan comes from the administration's conflicting definition of what reopening schools would even look like.  Back in December, Biden pledged "to bring the coronavirus pandemic under enough control to open most of the nation's schools during his first 100 days as president."  "It should be a national priority to get our kids back into school and keep them in school," Biden said at the time.  "If Congress provides the funding, we need to protect students, educators and staff.  If states and cities put strong public health measures in place that we all follow, then my team will work to see that the majority of our schools can be open by the end of my first 100 days."

President Biden takes another snow day — get your milk cartons ready.  On the campaign trail, Joe Biden repeatedly called for so many early a.m. "lids" that The [New York] Post ran a "Where's Joe" front page, wondering when the "hidin'" Biden would come out.  We may need to run it again, because President Biden is still calling them:  On Thursday [2/18/2021], he postponed a trip to Michigan, where he was to tour a Pfizer vaccine-making plant, then called an 8 a.m. lid — notifying the press that he won't be seen in public for the rest of the day.  Why?  Because DC is getting snow.  Seriously.  Notably, Vice President Kamala Harris still went ahead with her schedule.

The Puppet Speaks — Biden Refers To China's Genocide As A "Norm".  There is a reason his handlers try to keep Joe Biden away from the cameras.  When he speaks, he has an alarming tendency to say exactly what he thinks.  That was on full display during a recent CNN town hall event at which Joe appeared.  Discussing China and its policies toward its citizens, Joe explained that he understands that it is a priority of Xi Jinping, China's brutal strongman dictator, to maintain a "united tightly controlled China."  This was, according to Biden, a consequence of abuse the Chinese suffered in the past when "they were victimized by the outer world."  Joe also suggested that Xi's methods of ensuring this cohesion were simply a matter of China having different social "norms."

All of President Biden's key executive orders — in one chart.  President Joe Biden has made aggressive use of executive orders since being sworn in on Jan. 20, acting without Congress on issues across the spectrum even as he calls on lawmakers to work with him on giving more aid to Americans hurt by the coronavirus pandemic.  Biden's orders to date affect health care the energy sector, prison stocks and other areas.  Below is a table showing orders that he signed on his first day in office, as well as other executive actions that have followed or are expected.  [Chart]

Xi stoops to conquer Biden.  Addressing a CNN town hall event on Tuesday, President Biden said he would stand up for human rights in China.  But, he immediately added, Americans should recognize that "culturally, there are different norms that each country, and their leaders, are expected to follow."  These were ill-chosen words.  Especially since Biden had just identified the top three human rights abuses that define Communist China as its repression of Hong Kong, its threat to use force to subjugate Taiwan, and its genocidal campaign against the Uighur people.  There is no cultural norm that can excuse or justify these grotesque abuses.  By suggesting otherwise, Biden is sacrificing America's moral leadership at the altar of Chinese Communist Party arrogance.

How gone is he?  President Biden claimed during his CNN town hall in Wisconsin on Tuesday that his administration came into office with no coronavirus vaccines available. [...] Biden's remarks are confused, confusing, and absurdly erroneous.  How gone is he?  Or aren't we supposed to ask?

Does Joe Biden Believe All Gun Owners Are Hunters?  A common refrain from Joe Biden over the past decade has been his commitment to hunters and other sportsmen.  In a 2013 Facebook town hall event with Parents magazine, then Vice President Biden proudly stated, "no one's taking my shotguns" when the issue of the Second Amendment was addressed.  Biden has stuck to his guns — or more accurately his shotguns — many times when the issue of gun control has been brought up.  The same year as the town hall, Biden offered advice for self-defense — buy a shotgun, not an assault rifle.  "You don't need an AR-15," Biden said as reported by the Reuters News Agency at the time.  "It's harder to aim.  It's harder to use and in fact, you don't need 30 rounds to protect yourself.  Buy a shotgun."

Joe Biden sure is reluctant to criticize China.  I wonder why.
Biden dismisses Uighur genocide as part of China's 'different norms'.  President Biden is dismissing the genocide against the Uighur population in China, dubbing the mass internment a "different norm" — despite the State Department this month responding to "atrocities" in the camps, following reports of systemic rape and torture.  The commander-in-chief made the remarks after being asked during his CNN town hall Tuesday evening [2/16/2021] about his recent conversation with his Chinese counterpart, starting his response by relaying Xi's justification for the abuses.  "If you know anything about Chinese history, it has always been, the time when China has been victimized by the outer world is when they haven't been unified at home," Biden began.  "So the central — well, vastly overstated — the central principle of Xi Jinping is that there must be a united, tightly controlled China.  And he uses his rationale for the things he does based on that."

Trump says Biden is either 'lying or he's mentally gone' after claiming there was no Covid vaccine when he took office.  Donald Trump has speculated that Joe Biden is either lying or 'mentally gone' after the president on Tuesday night [2/16/2021] said his administration arrived to find no COVID-19 vaccines available.  Trump, who on Wednesday broke his silence to give a series of interviews marking the death of Rush Limbaugh, told Newsmax Biden made 'a very dumb statement' about the vaccines.  The former president teased a possible 2024 run, boasting about his 'tremendous support', and said he would not be returning to Twitter — the platform from which he was banned last month.

Vaccines, Schools And Racist Insurance: 'Fact-Checking' Biden's Town Hall Claims.  On Tuesday evening [2/16/2021], President Joe Biden traveled to Milwaukee, Wisconsin to participate in a CNN Presidential Town Hall — his first as President of the United States.  Speaking with CNN anchor Anderson Cooper, Biden fielded questions from audience members, some of whom voted for him and some of whom did not.  In a similar fashion to Biden's television appearances while on the campaign trail, and the first days of his administration, the town hall event was dripping with falsehoods and misleading arguments.

Biden Won't Rule Out Using Executive Orders To Crackdown On Second Amendment Rights:  White House.  President Joe Biden reportedly won't rule out using executive orders to crackdown on Americans' constitutionally protected Second Amendment rights.  The revelation was made during a White House press conference on Tuesday in response to a statement that Biden put out last week calling for banning semi-automatic firearms in addition to other gun control measures.  "What is your timetable for action on what the president calls common sense measures?" a reporter asked Psaki.  "And what's the realistic hope that you have this will pass both houses?"  "Well, we haven't proposed a package at this point," Psaki responded.

Is There a Reason U.S. Media Pushing Weird "Biden Plays Mario Kart" Story?  If you closely follow the way leftists engineer narratives, specifically when they choose to push a particularly innocuous aspect, you can usually spot an ulterior motive.  In this example several media outlets are really pushing a story about Joe Biden playing the Mario Kart video game with his granddaughter. [...] However, if one accepts there's always a reason for this kind of stuff deep in the details, you might wonder if this isn't part of an *anti-dementia* effort of narrative building from the WH press office.  Sound crazy?  Actually there's a reason for that question:  According to scientists the specific Super Mario game could help prevent dementia in patients with symptoms.  Specifically playing Super Mario video games for two months "can improve brain function and help forestall dementia symptoms."

Biden playing video games
VP Kamala Harris Has Allegedly Begun To Take Calls With World Leaders On Behalf Of Biden While The Commander-In-Chief Is Busy Playing Video Games.  During his weekend retreat at Camp David, Biden, and his granddaughter Naomi played the racing video game, and he won.  Naomi shared a video to Instagram that showed Biden competing against her on the Arcade GP DX machines, complete with chairs and steering wheels.  Naomi Biden posted on Snapchat this weekend that she and her grandfather played an arcade-style game round of Mario Kart at Camp David over the weekend — and that he won.  [Tweet]  After playing Mario Kart for three days at Camp David, Joe Biden finally returned to the White House on Monday.  While he spent the weekend playing video games thousands of Americans died of Covid-19.

Who's In Control?  Harris, Not Biden, Calling Foreign Heads of State.  How many heads of state have ventured to the White House to visit with Biden?  Isn't it common for the White House to host a parade of foreign dignitaries in the first weeks?  Hasn't Biden received the COVID vaxx?

Biden Falsely Claims: 'We Didn't Have' A Vaccine 'When We Came Into Office'.  President Joe Biden falsely claimed during a CNN town hall on Tuesday night [2/16/2021] that his administration did not have a vaccine to work with when he came into office, saying, "It's one thing to have the vaccine, which we didn't have when we came into office, but a vaccinator, how do you get the vaccine into someone's arm?"

Joe Biden Aims to Erase Donald Trump's Successes in Combating China.  The Biden administration has already taken steps to undo former President Trump's policies in countering China, a Republican Study Committee report reveals.  Instead of displaying "American leadership through a strategy based on peace through strength, the Biden team so far has exhibited a pattern of weakness, and a return to Obama's failed approach of engaging rather than holding China accountable for it's bad behavior," the report states.

China is Eating Biden's Lunch.  Chinese President Xi Jinping greatly impressed President Joe Biden in their two-hour telephone conversation this week.  That's not entirely a good thing.  Biden, briefing reporters on the Wednesday call, said, "Last night, I was on the phone for two straight hours with Xi Jinping.  They're investing billions of dollars in dealing with a whole range of issues that deal with transportation, the environment, and a whole range of other things.  So, we just have to step up."  He added, "We don't get moving, they're going to eat our lunch."  But for the fact that he's president — given his track record of having been wrong on every defense and foreign policy issue for almost five decades — it would be easy to ignore his assessment of China.  This is a man who said in 2019, "China is going to eat our lunch?  Come on, man."  He added, "I mean, you know, they're not bad folks, folks.  But guess what?  They're not competition for us."  Despite the difficulty of being wrong on both occasions Biden managed it.

Archbishop Of Kansas City:  Joe Biden 'Should Stop Defining Himself As A Devout Catholic'.  President Joe Biden has described himself as a "devout Catholic," a description enthusiastically repeated by his press secretary and the media.  Archbishop Joseph Naumann of Kansas City, who also serves as chairman of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops' (USCCB) Committee on Pro-Life Activities, however, said that the president's open support for legalized abortion should put that label to rest.  Speaking with Catholic World Report, Naumann flatly said that Biden "should stop defining himself as a devout Catholic" while acknowledging that his abortion views stand in direct opposition to the Catholic Church.

Scwheizer: Biden, Harris Families Have 'Cultural History' of 'Cashing in' on Family Name — 'Semblance of Entitlement'.  Monday [2/15/2021] on FNC's "Fox & Friends," Breitbart News senior contributor Peter Schweizer reacted to the report that White House aides are reportedly concerned about Vice President Kamala Harris' niece Meena Harris profiting off of her aunt's name and position because it would violate ethics rules.  Schweizer, who has long detailed President Joe Biden's family's corruption of profiting off of his name, said the Harris family also has a "cultural history" of "cashing in."  He added that if neither Biden nor Harris call off their family members, it "is absolutely going to continue."  "Ultimately, it's the principle — in this case, Vice President Harris or President Biden that have to lay down the law in their family," Schweizer stated.

The Ugly truth about 'Honest Joe'.  Now that the election is over and President Biden is installed in the White House, it's safe for the truth about his character to dribble out.  And what do you know?  Turns out the ethical standards of "Honest Joe" aren't worth a hill of beans.  Starting with the obvious, Hunter Biden is still in business with the Chinese Communist Party.  White House press secretary Jen Psaki admitted a little over a week ago that the president's wayward 51-year-old son still owns 10 percent of Chinese equity firm BHR Partners.  So much for Joe's promise that "no one in my family will ... have any business relationship with anyone that relates to a foreign corporation or a foreign country.  Period.  Period.  End of story."

Biden lies about Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick's death.  Trump was a boaster, a puffer, and an exaggerator, but he was always straight about the essentials.  Biden, on the other hand, is a stone-cold liar.  For years he lied about his first wife's death and, beginning in 2019, he lied consistently about Trump's stance on white supremacists.  Biden has now added a new lie to his rhetoric:  He claims that Trump is responsible for the death of Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick, who died of unknown causes after the events on January 6.

Obviously a lie:
Joe Biden Confronts Trump Acquittal: 'Substance of the Charge Not in Dispute'.  President Joe Biden confronted the acquittal of former President Donald Trump on Saturday [2/13/2021] by declaring that although Republican senators in the main did not vote against Trump, the "substance of the charge" that spawned the impeachment trial to his mind was "not in dispute."  As Breitbart news reported, the Senate failed to clear the 67-vote barrier necessary to convict Trump of the charge he incited an insurrection on January 6, when Congress was certifying the 2020 presidential election.  Seven Senate Republicans voted to convict Trump of inciting an insurrection, including Sens. Bill Cassidy (R-LA), Richard Burr (R-NC), Susan Collins (R-ME), Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), Mitt Romney (R-UT), Pat Toomey (R-PA), Ben Sasse (R-NE).

Worshipping At The Altar Of Power.  Despite professing their Catholicism, both Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and President Joe Biden publicly support abortion.  It is no accident that neither Pelosi nor Biden would have the power they now wield if they opposed abortion as their professed faith requires.  But they too have made a choice to kneel at the altar of power.

The Blue-Collar Joe Biden Myth Is A Lie.  One of the great and enduring myths of President Joe Biden is that he grew up a man of the people.  Blue-collar Joe has always been part of his persona — he was the guy from Scranton, Penn. after all.  Throughout his political career, Biden touted his blue collar roots like a badge of honor.  He routinely speaks like the common man having a conversation after a hard day's work on the assembly line, using go-to phrases including, "look, folks." [...] It was the college-educated professionals who helped get Blue Collar Joe to the White House.  Perhaps the average working man and woman saw what we should all see — Blue Collar Joe is an act and a bad one at that.

Joe Biden sure is friendly with China.  I wonder why.
Biden administration expresses 'deep concerns' about WHO's China probe.  The Biden administration on Saturday expressed "deep concerns" about the World Health Organization's (WHO) probe into the Chinese handling of the coronavirus.  "We have deep concerns about the way in which the early findings of the COVID-19 investigation were communicated and questions about the process used to reach them," National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan said in a lengthy statement.  "It is imperative that this report be independent, with expert findings free from intervention or alteration by the Chinese government."  The WHO sent a team to investigate the origins of the virus in Wuhan, and was closely watched for evidence of Chinese stonewalling.  The team left this week after saying that it was "extremely unlikely" that the virus emerged from a lab in Wuhan — and said it was pretty much not worth "further studies."

Ted Cruz Reveals Submitted Questions Not Asked: 'Can We Build Keystone Pipeline if We Add Hunter Biden to the Board?'.  U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) revealed Saturday several questions his colleagues submitted that House impeachment managers did not entertain.  "Can we build the Keystone Pipeline if we add Hunter Biden to the board?" read one, according to Cruz.  That was referring to President Joe Biden's cancellation of the pipeline that would deliver energy from Canada to American refineries.  Biden's move ended 11,000 union jobs.  The wrinkle of Hunter Biden refers to the president's son landing a lucrative position on the board of Burisma, a Ukrainian energy company, despite no experience in energy production or knowledge of the language.

Biden WH can't say how it is refuting perception that the US border is open.  The White House struggled to answer on Thursday [2/11/2021] how it was working to dispel the belief among migrants that the US border is open, instead shifting focus to the administration's "moral and humane" immigration policy, amid a nearly 100 percent surge of illegal crossings.  Speaking to reporters at a briefing, White House press secretary Jen Psaki engaged in a back-and-forth with two reporters about her claim earlier this week that the US is turning away the "vast majority" of migrants at the southern border.  After being pressed on Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador saying this week that migrants believed the borders were open under President Biden, Psaki admitted that what she was saying "is not, I guess, what you're perhaps seeing if you're looking at a portion of the border, but what they are tracking in terms of numbers and data."

Joe Biden Mumbles Through His Face Mask, Blames Trump For His Own Administration's Vaccine Distribution Failures.  Joe Biden mumbled through his face mask and blamed Trump for his own administration's failure to administer vaccines to hundreds of millions of Americans.  Joe Biden is the biggest idiot to ever be installed as president.  The Biden Admin inherited Trump's vaccination program already meeting their target of 100 million shots in 100 days.  Joe Biden has repeatedly claimed he will use the Defense Production Act to speed up vaccinations — but Trump used the DPA repeatedly.  Biden continues to lie about Trump's vaccine distribution plan and blamed him for his own failures.

Joe Biden sure is friendly with China.  I wonder why.
China Applauds Biden for 'Showing Respect' to Xi Jinping in Lunar New Year Call.  Chinese media outlets praised President Joe Biden on Wednesday for what they characterized as a respectful, "positive" call between the head of state and Chinese dictator Xi Jinping.  The Xinhua news agency and the Global Times state propaganda newspaper both highlighted the timing — on the eve of the Lunar New Year — as a gesture of goodwill from the new presidential administration.  The former expressed hope that, after President Donald Trump's tenure featured policies designed to contain the influence of the Chinese Communist Party abroad and frequent condemnations of its human rights atrocities, America under Biden would return to the "right track" of policy favorable to Beijing.

Biden's Policies So Far Benefit Beijing:  China Expert.  Some of President Joe Biden's executive orders are misguided, as they will ultimately benefit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), China expert Gordon Chang said.  "Although he [Biden] talks about extreme competition with China, although he talks about holding China accountable, we have seen in those executive orders a flood of measures that Beijing just absolutely loves," Chang said.  Chang made the comments during a recent interview with The Epoch Times' "American Thought Leaders" program.  Among the executive orders that Biden has signed, Chang highlighted two in particular — one suspending former President Donald Trump's executive order on securing U.S. critical electric infrastructure and one revoking the permit for constructing the Keystone XL pipeline.

Biden Administration Drops Trump Plan to Track Campus 'Confucius Institutes'.  Campus 'Confucius Institutes' have been repeatedly accused of spreading Chinese Communist Party propaganda in the United States for years.  Trump took action on this issue last year, following the outbreak of the Coronavirus pandemic.  Biden is now turning back the clock and reversing this policy, which makes no sense.  Over the past year, there have been multiple cases of people in American academia arrested for unlawful contact with China, even at the top of Harvard's chemistry department.

Public Servants or Parasites?  When did politicians and federal employees start calling themselves "public servants"? Even more importantly, why are we letting them? [...] Take Joe Biden, for example.  He claims to have been in public service for over 50 years.  But what has he done in that time?  He was the first senator to initiate a personal attack on a Supreme Court nominee.  His attack on Robert Bork was shameful, and helped create the current environment of Supreme Court politicization.  He also used the power of his office to enrich his family members.  Exactly how did lunch-bucket Joe become a multimillionaire on the salary of a politician?  I fail to see how that has been a service to the country.

Media Fails to Report on the Booing of Biden Heard at Super Bowl.  Joe Biden has already had a lot of firsts.  Almost immediately, his first broken promise, failing to deliver the $2000 virus relief, and people are not letting him forget it.  Then he had his first court loss, trying to suspend virtually all deportations for the first 100 days and getting slapped down by the judge.  Now according to a lot of people who watched the Super Bowl, he had his first boos at a major event.  He and his wife Jill appeared virtually over a huge screen at the game.  Jill, as usual, did the most talking. [...] While people heard boos and the British media, The Daily Mail and Independent U.K. reported it, not so much American media, although it was acknowledged by this home page editor of Fox News although it didn't seem to have made it onto their front page.

Joe Biden Phone Call On Hunter's Laptop Links Him To Family Business Dealings.  Joe Biden faces revelations that he was personally involved in discussions regarding his family's dirty overseas business dealings, according to email communications found on Hunter Biden's laptop that have been reviewed in their entirety by National File.  "Don't mention Joe being involved," one of Hunter's business partners James Gillar told another Hunter business partner Tony Bobulinski in a WhatsApp text message, referring to Hunter's overseas dealings.  As we reported, Hunter Biden's business dealings link him to Chinese espionage against America, with Joe Biden personally meeting the CEO of a Hunter firm that invested in a Chinese nuclear power company that the Obama DOJ charged with trying to steal American nuclear secrets.

Biden's son-in-law Howard Krein's health care work reportedly draws ethical scrutiny.  President Biden's son-in-law's investment in a health care company involved in the coronavirus vaccine effort is raising eyebrows in ethical circles after the president pledged that family members would have no influence in government matters, according to a report Tuesday [2/9/2021].  Yosi Health CEO Hari Prasad created software that would help make the vaccine process more efficient and sought help from one of his company's first investors, StartUp Health, which employs Biden son-in-law, Howard Krein, as its chief medical officer, ABC News reported.  Prasad sought help from StartUp Health in December to pitch their software platform to government health officials, the report said.  "Our goal with StartUp Health is to leverage their relationships and work with state and federal agencies," he told ABC News.

Joe Biden's Climate Change China Crisis.  President Joe Biden has made fighting climate change the cornerstone of his administration's domestic and international policies.  This presents Biden with a huge China problem.  Biden believes greenhouse gas emissions are causing dangerous climate change.  China is the world's largest emitter of anthropogenic carbon dioxide emissions, emitting more than double America's present emissions and growing.  As such, Biden and his policy team, including John Kerry, his climate change envoy, and Secretary of State, Antony Blinken, see cooperation with China as necessary to reduce the threat of global warming.  Early on, the Biden administration talked tough about China. [...] Although Biden is talking tough with China in public, his policies are already quietly giving Beijing the upper hand in climate negotiations.

Rebuild Better, But Rebuild What?  President Biden, his administration, and many others in the US and elsewhere are suggesting that modern Western capitalism is so bad that it needs to be dismantled and replaced with something else.  "Rebuild better" they say, which — among other things — suggests a demolition of what we currently have. [...] There are some things that exist in America, today, that are so detrimental to our national freedom and well-being that need to be dismantled, but the free market and constitutional protections of individual liberties, cornerstones of the modern Western capitalism, are not among them.

Biden Threatens America's Dominance in Space.  Americans have gotten increasingly excited about our nation's space exploration goals during the last four years.  The culmination of the public-private partnership between Elon Musk's SpaceX and NASA saw Americans cheer wildly as Americans were lifted into space again in May 2020.  This was the first time since the Space Shuttle that Americans flew on U.S.-built spacecraft leaving from American soil.  Now, it appears the Biden administration is once again rolling back the clock on American space dominance.  In his first days in office, Biden gave just tepid approval to the "Artemis" lunar program, yet at the same time called into question Trump's bold plans to land an American on the moon in 2024.

Psaki: A Head Bob From Our Elderly President Does Not Indicate Comprehension.  To quote our 46th president — come on, man.  We knew the White House would eventually have to retreat from Joe Biden's answer on Iran and sanctions in his Super Bowl interview, but not by making it sound as though Biden couldn't keep up with Norah O'Donnell.  Rather than try to spin Biden's answer as no real change from his previous positions, Jen Psaki instead accused O'Donnell of putting words in Biden's mouth, and insinuated that Biden couldn't fend for himself in a national interview.

Psaki When Asked About Biden's EO Forcing Girls to Compete Against Biological Males:  Transgenders are More Important Than Your Daughters.  What about the rights of young girls?  When asked about the White House's message to young girls being forced to compete against biological males, Psaki said Biden's belief is trans rights are human rights.  In other words, Joe Biden believes biological males who identify as transgender, are more important than your daughters.  Psaki then deferred the reporter to the schools that are forced to allow biological males to compete with biological females — because of Joe Biden's executive order.

Biden gets flirty with nurse running vaccine site: 'You look like a freshman!'.  Maybe it's a good thing he was 2,000 miles away.  President Biden had an awkward, flirty moment Monday during a video conference event with health care workers in Arizona, during which he stopped to compliment one nurse for her youthful appearance — even gushing that she looks "like a freshman."  Biden got up to some of his "creepy" old antics when he responded to the nursing supervisor's detailed description of giving COVID-19 shots by asking her about her age.  "Are you a freshman at the university?" Biden asked Brittney Hayes at the end of a conversation in which she had laid out the process for getting shots to people at the State Farm Stadium vaccination site in Glendale.

Joe and Jill Biden get BOOED by Super Bowl fans during pre-game video message.  Moments before Super Bowl LV kicked off Sunday night, President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden made a pre-recorded appearance to honor the more than 463,000 people who have died from COVID-19 by asking for a moment of silence — instead they were booed by some of the crowd.  'Before kickoff we wanted to thank all the frontline healthcare heroes both at the game and watching across the country.  You put yourself at risk to keep the rest of us safe.  You and your families carried us through this year with courage, compassion and kindness.  We couldn't have made it without you.  With all our hearts thank you.  The president said:  'Now as we thank you and all of our essential workers, let's remember we all can do our part to save lives.  Wear masks, stay socially-distanced, get tested, get vaccinated when it's your turn, and most of all let's remember all those who we've lost.

Did Biden Get Booed?  Bidens Make Creepy Video Appearance at Super Bowl, Tell Americans to Wear Masks and Get Vaccinated.  Super Bowl LV: Kansas City Chiefs v. Tampa Bay Buccaneers kicked off Sunday [2/7/2021] at the Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida.  According to reports, 22,000 fans attended the Super Bowl on Sunday.  The Bidens barged in and made a creepy video appearance before kickoff to lecture Americans about "social distancing."  Americans just can't get on with their lives because the Democrats have to drone on and on about Covid every second of every day.  Joe Biden and his  handler  wife Jill made a video message from their Delaware basement bunker that played on the jumbotron — as if people watching football and drinking beer want to hear from Dementia Joe.

Biden Invents An Economic Crisis To Justify His Reckless $1.9 Trillion COVID 'Relief'.  President Joe Biden used Friday's [2/5/2021] jobs report as another justification for his massive $1.9 trillion stimulus bill.  "A once-in-a-century virus has decimated our economy, and it's still wreaking havoc on our economy today," he said.  Funny, because that's not what the data show.  Some Democrats are already coming to realize that piling another $1.9 trillion in deficit spending on top of the more than $3 trillion already targeting COVID relief is an enormous mistake.

The Editor says...
Covid-19 was not and is not a "once-in-a-century virus."  Something similar comes along every couple of years — usually in election years.

Joe Biden is Not My (Catholic) President.  It is hard to imagine a worse start to a presidency than Joe Biden signing 42 executive orders in a fenced-in Washington D.C.  The inauguration showed a strong military presence, but few actual citizens.  This presidency bears no resemblance to democracy.  None at all.  And now, with the stroke of a pen, Biden has alienated American Catholics and other Christians who hold strong values about life.  When asked about the abortion policies of the new administration, White House press secretary Jen Psaki responded that Biden is a devout Catholic who had gone to Mass on inauguration day.  Yet, one week later, Biden proved that he is not devout or even Catholic on the issue of abortion.  It is baffling why he considered it an urgent matter to end the Mexico City Policy that restricts taxpayer funding of abortion providers overseas.

Top Democrat Senator Slams Biden:  He's Going In 'Wrong' Direction By Being 'Strictly Partisan'.  A top Democrat Senator slammed President Joe Biden in remarks delivered at a policy event on Thursday, saying that the Democrats "started wrong" and that Biden is going in the wrong direction by being partisan in trying to get a coronavirus stimulus plan passed.  Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV), who made the remarks during an interview with the Bipartisan Policy Center, was talking about Democrats' attempts to pass the coronavirus stimulus package that they want, without bipartisan support, by using the reconciliation process.  "We started wrong," Manchin said.  "And I think that Joe Biden's advisers have led him wrong to start out in a strictly partisan direction.  We should have found something that we could have voted on bipartisan first and then gone down this lane when we hit a roadblock, and they didn't do that, but that's fine, we're going to start this, I'm determined to make it bipartisan because if we go off the rails and there's no bipartisan, you ain't coming back for two years."

White House Appears to Confirm Hunter Biden Still Holds Stake in Chinese Private Equity Firm.  The White House press secretary appeared to confirm that President Joe Biden's son Hunter Biden still holds a stake in a Chinese private equity firm.  "He has been working to unwind his investment," press secretary Jen Psaki said during a Friday press conference when asked about Hunter Biden's stake in Bohai Harvest RST Shanghai Equity Investment Fund Management, commonly known as BHR Partners.  Psaki's remarks confirmed an early report by the Daily Caller saying Hunter Biden still holds a stake in the Chinese company.  She then directed reporters to Hunter Biden for further questions.  "I would certainly point you — he's a private citizen.  I would point you to him or his lawyers on the outside on any update," she added.

This is exactly what Obama would do.  In other words, it was probably Obama's idea.
Biden administration to remove terrorist designation for Yemen's Houthi militia.  The Biden administration said Friday that it is removing the terrorist designation for the Iranian-backed Houthi militia in Yemen — reversing a move made in the final days of the Trump administration and the latest sign of a different approach to the war-torn Middle East.  "After a comprehensive review, we can confirm that [Secretary of State Antony Blinken] intends to revoke the Foreign Terrorist Organization and Specially Designated Global Terrorist designations of Ansarallah," a State Department spokesperson said.  "We have formally notified Congress of the Secretary's intent to revoke these designations and will share more details in the coming days."

Hunter Biden moves family to $5.4 million canal-front home in Venice.  Hunter Biden has moved his family to a stylish $5.4 million canal-front home in Venice, California, can reveal.  The president's son moved into the three-story property with wife Melissa and their 10-month-old son Beau toward the end of last year and the family is now under 24-hour Secret Service protection.  It's believed the father of five, who turned 51 on Thursday, is paying $25,000 a month to rent the posh property owned by Sweetgreen co-founder and CEO Jonathan Neman.  Hunter has some fresh cash to help pay for the pricey rental.  On Thursday it was revealed he has written a memoir titled Beautiful Things, that will be published April 6.  The advance for the book is said to be as much as $2 million.

Biden's Magical Mystery Energy Plans.  [Scroll down]  Biden said his administration would hire people to transform the American electrical sector to produce power without carbon pollution and provide rebates so that Americans would buy electric cars.  He said jobs would be created for Americans to build electric charging stations all over the country.  He plans to replace with electricity all the energy we get from gas.  Where is all that electricity going to come from?  In the same speech, he answered that question.  He said:  "We're going to take money and invest it in clean energy jobs in America — millions of jobs in wind, solar, and carbon capture" and "We need solar energy cost-competitive with traditional energy."  There's a fundamental problem with that.  Solar energy isn't anywhere close to being cost-competitive with traditional energy even when the sun is shining.  Neither is wind power.  This fact alone means that for every job that Biden creates multiple jobs will be lost.  That point was lost on the American public when they voted for Joe Biden.

The Editor says...
The American public voted to re-elect Donald Trump.  The election was stolen, and the presidency was handed over to Joe Biden, who was unscrupulous enough to accept it.  [#2] Please stop saying "carbon pollution."  Carbon dioxide it not carbon.  Nor is it a pollutant.  [#3] None of the Socialist Democrats' "clean energy" plans will ever replace the affordable energy that we currently enjoy through the combustion of hydrocarbons.  Various loopholes will be opened up to permit you to use gasoline, but only if you pay a hefty tax on every gallon.  The main goal of the Socialist Democrats' platform is to raise taxes, and then spend even more.

Hiding Biden.  The first impeachment failed to oust Trump from office, but it helped secure the White House for Biden.  It shielded him from scrutiny, enabling him and his supporters to cast allegations during the campaign about dubious Biden family business ties as rehashed Trumpian conspiracy theories.  Biden's razor-thin swing state victories might not have materialized if the Trump campaign had been able to gain traction from its October Surprise — a series of articles it helped orchestrate in the New York Post that reported information from a laptop owned by Hunter Biden suggesting corrupt foreign business deals that may have involved his father.  As many as 45 percent of Biden voters said they were unaware of Hunter's financial scandals before the election.  That's likely because Democrats and much of the media discredited or did not report the accusations in the final weeks of the campaign — accusations that were bolstered after the election when Hunter admitted that he has been the subject of an ongoing federal corruption probe since 2018.

Biden says US is at 'war' with virus, but his weekends lack a battle posture.  During President Biden's campaign, "lid" announcements, meaning he would not be seen the rest of those days, were the source of mirth.  And for a commander in chief who has declared war on the coronavirus pandemic, the president's weekend schedules so far have failed to adopt that war-like footing.  Biden took his first Air Force One flight as president on Friday, jetting home to Wilmington, Delaware, where he and first lady Jill Biden are expected to stay through Sunday.  The trip comes after the White House had a quiet two days last weekend, at least in the public eye.  The Biden campaign's habit of calling an early "lid," or informing reporters and news outlets they had no further public events planned, became an easy target of former President Donald Trump, his campaign, and Republican operatives online.

Joe Biden Revives False Claim He Was 'Shot At' While Overseas.  Joe Biden continues to lie about his past.  This time, he brought back a debunked story of him allegedly being shot at while overseas.  At a debate in 2007, Biden claimed he was targeted at the Green Zone in Baghdad.  He had to retract those comments after getting backlash from veterans.

Polis urges Biden administration to keep Space Command, BLM in Colorado.  Gov. Jared Polis (D-Colorado) is calling for the Biden administration to reconsider U.S. Space Command's impending move away from Colorado Springs and to keep the Bureau of Land Management headquartered in Grand Junction.  Polis, Lt. Gov. Dianne Primavera, Colorado Springs Mayor John Suthers and a bipartisan group of state lawmakers wrote in a letter to Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin that the decision to relocate U.S. Space Command to Huntsville, Ala., could "undermine our country's ability to respond to national security threats in space" if allowed to continue without review.

Biden Might [Have a Problem] Once the Migrant Caravan Arrives.  Remember that migrant caravan that started moving towards the United States southern border a few weeks ago?  Well, it's currently stuck in Guatemala, but another one has arisen and is on its way.  The Biden administration does not seem to have much of a plan for it.  Even worse, it appears that the president, who hammered his predecessor for his tough stance on immigration, doesn't have many good options to choose from.

Hunter Biden is Gonna Run for Senate, Isn't He?  Joe Biden has a Hunter Biden problem.  A pretty big one.  Big Tech suppressed the Hunter Biden story and a lot of social media conservatives drift from one trend to another.  There's still an FBI investigation of Hunter Biden, but even if his dad weren't in the White House, the odds of the feds doing anything other than what they did with the investigation of Bernie Sander's wife or Hillary Clinton's emails is slim to none.  But even with the media running cover for Hunter Biden, there's a whole range of awkward material about him out there.  That's not as big a problem for Joe, as it is for Hunter, because the business model of the Biden clan depends on him.  If Hunter Biden isn't close to his father, his economic value diminishes.  And if he's seen as an unstable loose cannon, he's less likely to score business opportunities.  All of this requires a whole bunch of image rehab.  And Simon and Schuster and a bunch of lefty writers were only too happy to help.

Hunter Biden scarfs up a lucrative book deal.  Joe Biden's family and associates are back in business, making money off the family name.  Sure, Biden reportedly admonished his brother to "watch yourself," but that didn't stop brother Frank getting busy advertising his ties to Joe in an ad for a Florida law firm on the day Joe was sworn in.  Son Hunter reportedly never divested himself of his China holdings as had been leaked earlier.  On the Kamala Harris side of things, stepdaughter Ella got a lucrative modeling contract, and niece Maya got herself a book deal and clothing range.  Now son Hunter has got himself a lucrative book deal, too, worth, as the Daily Mail reports, up to $2 million, about his dissolute life.  The White House dismisses it as a nothingburger since it's a book about a "personal struggle." But as Hunter said of his lucrative board seat on Ukrainian energy company Burisma, it's a fair guess to say it "probably" would not have happened had his name not been "Biden."  The book's title is Beautiful Things, and in this case, unlike Ukrainian energy, he actually writes about something he knows about, which is his life of addiction and drugs.

Simon and Schuster Give Hunter Biden Book Deal After Canceling Senator Josh Hawley Book Deal.  An interesting compare-&-contrast arises amid reports out today of Joe Biden's son, Hunter Biden, getting a book deal to publish his memoir "Beautiful Things".  The controversial life of Hunter Biden includes abusive relationships, sex scandals, drug use and retaining a position of affluence by trading on his father's position in government.  Everything surrounding Hunter Biden is not only sketchy, it is the life of a very troubled, manipulative, opportunistic and creepy person... e.v.e.r.y.t.h.i.n.g.

Biden brings back kids in cages.  How's this for buried news?  The Biden administration, through executive order, is scrapping President Trump's "Remain in Mexico" policy for illegal border crossers claiming asylum.  Which means, catch-and-release, but detention centers, for presumably vulnerable "unaccompanied minors."  That would likely include 14-year-old gang bangers, even as the media would present only toddlers.

Joe Biden: 'We're Willing to Work with Beijing When It's in America's Interest'.  President Joe Biden said he is willing to work with the communist government of China as long as it is in America's interests during a speech on Thursday [2/4/2021].  "We're willing to work with Beijing when it's in America's interest to do so," he said during a speech at the State Department outlining his approach to diplomacy.  The president promised to confront China's abuses on economic issues, human rights, intellectual property, and global governance, but his approach was starkly different from that of former President Donald Trump.  "We'll also take on directly the challenges posed by our prosperity, security, and democratic values by our most serious competitor, China," Biden said.

Joe Biden revives controversial claim that he was 'shot at' overseas.  President Biden on Thursday [2/4/2021] told State Department employees he was "shot at" overseas — reviving a claim that previously stirred controversy.  "You have great personal courage.  I've been with some of you when we've been shot at," Biden told a group of diplomatic aides in Washington.  Biden did not offer a detailed description of being shot at.  But he was forced to walk back a similar claim in 2007 as veterans warned him not to exaggerate.  Biden said during a CNN-hosted Democratic presidential debate in 2007 that he was "shot at" inside Baghdad's fortified Green Zone.  He later revised the claim, saying that in fact, "I was near where a shot landed."

Chasing the Dragon.  The Biden family's ties to China are now well known.  His son, Hunter, has made millions from an investment partnership called Bohai Harvest RST (BHR) that he built after stepping off Air Force Two in 2012 while his father was Vice President, making a state visit to Beijing.  BHR is a private equity firm founded by Hunter Biden and funded with $1.5 billion from the Chinese government via the Bank of China.  That was the first of many other deals Hunter and Chinese military-connected firms would broker.  In 2015, a Chinese state-run military contractor called Aviation Industry Corporation of China (AVIC), acquired a 51 percent stake in Henniges Automotive Co., an American company developing "dual-use" technologies with military applications.  The other 49 percent was purchased by Bohai Harvest RST (BHR).  Despite the dual-use concerns, the Obama administration approved the deal.  Hunter was involved in another deal called Chinese General Nuclear, a Chinese company that was implicated by the FBI in stealing nuclear secrets from the United States.  Executives from that company were arrested.  In 2017, he also worked on securing a deal with CEFC China Energy to invest in US energy projects, according to documents released by Senate Republicans investigating the matter.  That deal eventually fell through, but not before CEFC's founder and former chairman Ye Jianming reportedly gave Hunter a 2.8-carat diamond after a Miami business meeting.

Hunter Biden is to publish a memoir called Beautiful Things in April about his battle with drugs — despite his father Joe saying his family would NOT cash in on presidency.  Hunter Biden, son of President Joe Biden and an ongoing target for conservatives, has a memoir coming out April 6.  The book is called 'Beautiful Things' and will center on the younger Biden's well-publicized struggles with substance abuse, according to Gallery Books, an imprint of Simon & Schuster.  Acquired in the fall of 2019, 'Beautiful Things' was kept under wraps even as Biden's business dealings became a fixation of then-President Donald Trump and others during the election and his finances a matter of investigation by the Justice Department.

Biden Is Already Failing On His COVID Vaccine Promises.  When not attacking the Trump administration for the pace of COVID-19 vaccine distribution, candidate Joe Biden said he'd dramatically accelerate the rate at which Americans got treated.  What's more, he was supposed to be ready on day one.  At least, that's what he and his team kept telling the public.  So why is the growth rate of daily vaccinations decelerating?  And why is President Biden now busy making excuses?  Before taking office, Biden stated that he'd directed his team to prepare a "much more aggressive effort, with more federal involvement and leadership, to get things back on track."

Beijing Tells Biden Administration to Play by the CCP's Rules.  China's top diplomat Yang Jiechi warned the Biden administration not to cross Beijing's "red line" in a half-hour speech on the evening of Feb. 1.  "The United States should stop interference in the affairs of Hong Kong, Tibet, and Xinjiang," Yang said, calling the issues regarding the three regions China's "internal affairs." He made the remarks while speaking at a virtual event hosted by New York-based nonprofit the National Committee on U.S.-China Relations.  Yang added:  "They constitute a red line that must not be crossed.  Any trespassing would end up undermining China-U.S. relations and the United States' own interests."  He also told the United States that it should "strictly abide by the One China principle" with regards to Taiwan, a self-ruled island that Beijing claims is part of its territory.

Ex-colleague of Hunter Biden's lawyer gets top DOJ post.  Hunter Biden hired a new attorney to assist with his federal criminal defense a month before his father became president.  On Inauguration Day, one of that lawyer's close colleagues was tapped to temporarily lead the Justice Department's criminal division.  The moves put the new DOJ official atop a powerful arm of the justice system as his former colleague represents a client fending off a criminal probe.  While their connection will fuel scrutiny of a politically charged matter, ethics experts say strictly adhering to conflict-of-interest rules can address any legitimate concerns.

Hunter Biden's Attorney Just So Happens to Be Tied to White Collar Crimes Official in Biden DOJ.  In the Swamp, there are no coincidences.  The Biden administration tapped an official to work in the white collar crimes division of the Department of Justice that is directly linked to a Hunter Biden lawyer.  The official's selection was announced shortly after the Biden inauguration.  "Nicholas McQuaid, a former federal prosecutor in Manhattan who served as a White House lawyer during the Obama presidency, has been named the acting leader of the U.S. Justice Department's criminal division," the announcement said.  It explained it is "a role that will come with oversight of the Biden administration's early white-collar enforcement efforts."  An Axios report documents that McQuaid is tied to former federal prosecutor Chris Clark, who is a partner at the firm Latham & Watkins.  In December, Hunter Biden hired Clark.  The report states bluntly that, "Clark worked on multiple cases with Nicholas McQuaid, another partner in the firm's white-collar defense and investigations practice who is now leading DOJ's criminal division."

Biden is the most radical left-wing president in US history, period.  Joe Biden is off to the most left-wing start of any Democratic president in recent memory.  Just two weeks later, the dulcet tones of Biden's inaugural address already seem an artifact of a bygone era.  Republicans will hammer him for the rest of his presidency for failing to deliver on his unifying message, but the fact is that Biden is governing as he promised — further to the left of his own record, further to the left of his ex-boss, former President Barack Obama, and further to the left of any Democrat who made his career prior to the ascendency of the cultural left.

Biden Wants to Kill 80 Percent of America's Energy.  For millennials, supporting green energy is cool and even virtuous.  It's a popular and costless way to save the planet — until the power doesn't flow through the grid.  Then the laptops, hairdryers, Netflix shows, computer games and iPhones run out of juice.  That may happen one of these days — and in the not-too-distant future (just ask Californians about blackouts), when the sun isn't shining and the wind isn't blowing.  Which brings me to President Joe Biden's take-no-prisoners approach to energy.  The goals:  kill fossil fuels; stop the building of pipelines; enter international treaties that outlaw fossil fuel use; end drilling on federal lands; strangle the oil and gas industries with regulatory assaults.  And then throw billions and perhaps trillions of tax dollars at wind and solar farms.  So, let's go back to the question I ask students:  How much of our energy needs today are met with fossil fuels — the so-called dirty energy?

Biden wants to make his DOJ funnel money to the Left.  One of former Attorney General Jeff Sessions's most important acts in office was his genuinely swamp-clearing 2017 reversal of a corrupt Obama administration practice at the Department of Justice.  Sessions forbade the department from reaching settlements with deep-pocketed defendants that involved cash payments, not to taxpayers or victims, but to third parties — in practice, often to left-wing social justice organizations.  "When the federal government settles a case against a corporate wrongdoer, any settlement funds should go first to the victims and then to the American people," Sessions said, "not to bankroll third-party special interest groups or the political friends of whoever is in power."  Unfortunately, one of President Biden's first acts in office was to initiate the reinstatement of this corrupt practice.

Sunday Talks, Stephen Miller Discusses Impact of JoeBama's Executive Orders.  Stephen Miller appeared [1/31/2021] with Maria Bartiromo to discuss the impact of JoeBama's blitz of executive orders in the first ten days of the administration.  Miller outlines how these more than 40 executive orders work to undermine the U.S. economy, U.S worker and ultimately U.S. national security.  [Video clip]

Any excuse will do.
Biden working from home, cancels speech after DC gets 2-inch dusting.  President Biden decided to work from home — the White House — Monday despite what New Yorkers getting pounded by a foot-and-a-half of snow would consider a mere dusting for DC, as just about 2 inches coated the nation's capital.  Biden kept late-afternoon plans to host 10 Republican senators to discuss COVID-19 relief at the White House, but canceled plans to speak at the State Department a few blocks away.  After 10 p.m.  Sunday, Biden tweeted a daytime photo of himself outside a snowy West Wing, writing, "Grateful for the short commute on days like these."  Hours later, a White House official confirmed to a pool reporter that the State Department trip was nixed due to the snow.

Biden's Catholic Praetorian Guard.  Apart from the criticism of Gomez, Biden enjoyed almost a Catholic coronation on inauguration day.  It began with a Mass in his honor at St.  Matthew's Cathedral, where the homilist, Jesuit Father Kevin O'Brien, burbled, "We have much to look forward to as a country because of your and Kamala Harris' leadership."  By the end of that day, Biden had already signed an executive order promoting transgenderism, the opening shot in what is sure to be the most anti-Catholic presidency ever.  In his inaugural address, he had the gall to quote St. Augustine, whose warnings about the decadent "city of man" perfectly apply to Joe Biden's vision for America.  St. Augustine taught that realizing the common good requires adherence to the natural moral law.  Joe Biden's agenda is to reject the natural moral law in favor of a woke relativism that reflects nothing more than the caprice of powerful elites.

China Analysts:  Biden Giving China 'Everything' They Want, China Going To Be 'Quite Aggressive'.  Two China policy analysts warned that communist China is going to be "quite aggressive" toward the United States because they believe that they will surpass it and do not see President Joe Biden as a tough opponent.  "Well, Biden right now — the Chinese are testing him, but they don't really have to lift a finger to do this, because he's giving them everything that they want," said Gordon Chang, author of "The Coming Collapse of China," said on Fox News' "Sunday Morning Futures."

China Doesn't Have to Lift a Finger to Push Biden Around.  "Xenophobia" has been a constant Biden theme.  On January 31 of last year, President Trump announced the "travel ban," prohibitions and restrictions on arrivals from China.  Within moments of the announcement, Biden went on the attack.  "This is no time for Donald Trump's record of hysterical xenophobia and fear mongering to lead the way instead of science," he said.  Biden's campaign said the attack was not in response to the travel ban, yet on the following day the candidate expressed the same thoughts in a tweet:  "We need to lead the way with science — not Donald Trump's record of hysteria, xenophobia, and fear-mongering."  There was nothing "xenophobic" about Trump's travel ban.  It was imposed on arrivals from the country where the disease first appeared.  The ban, therefore, saved lives, and it would have saved even more if it had been stricter, announced sooner, and had been more rigorously enforced.

Schweizer: Biden Isn't Concerned about How Trading on Family Name Is Corrupt, 'Business as Usual'.  On Friday's [1/29/2021] broadcast of the Fox News Channel's "Hannity," Breitbart News senior contributor Peter Schweizer [...] said, "I think the recent report about Joe admonishing his brother, two things stand out, Sean.  First of all, it seems kind of pre-canned.  It's almost like they're trying to leak the fact that Joe is concerned about this, even though the family's been doing this for decades.  But second of all, notice what Joe Biden actually tells his brother.  What he says is, watch what you're doing, you don't want to get hurt.  There's no mention of how this is corrupt, how this is going to look bad, how this is going to affect the country, how it might create bad perceptions about cronyism and corruption.  There's none of that.  The focus is on the family and family members getting hurt.  So, it's going to be business as usual."  [Video clip]

Biden signs a stack of unilateral edicts and decrees
Biden signed FORTY TWO executive actions in his first 10 days and here's the full list.  I'm old enough to remember October when Joe Biden said you can't govern by executive order "unless you're a dictator."  Welp, in his first week and a half in office, Biden signed 42 executive orders, memos, and proclamations, outstripping every other president in history by about a hundred miles.  You could count the orders of most presidents during the same timeframe on one hand, even with the growing trend of governing by executive fiat.  Translation:  This number is insane.  I mean, does Congress even matter anymore?

Biden brood already cashing in on Joe's presidency.  They can't quit the grift.  No sooner had Joe Biden won the White House than his family went back to trying to make a buck off his name.  The latest sordid example involves one of Joe's younger brothers, Frank Biden, appearing in a Florida law firm's ad — on Inauguration Day no less.  The ad used the president's name to draw attention to the Berman Law Group's class-action suit against sugar cane growers.  "The two Biden brothers have long held a commitment to pushing environmental issues to the forefront," says the ad.  "The president-elect has vowed to rejoin the Paris Agreement and wants to set ambitious greenhouse gas reduction targets."  The ad, first reported by CNBC, appeared in the Daily Business Review and carried a picture of Frank Biden and quotes him saying, "My brother is a model for how to go about doing this work."  How touching.  And shameless.

Attorneys General Blast Joe Biden For Signing Record Number of Executive Orders in First Week in Office.  Several state attorneys general wrote a letter to Joe Biden slamming him for signing a record number of executive orders in his first week in office.  Dictator Biden has signed approximately 3 dozen executive orders in his first week in office.  Biden is unilaterally legislating and has completely ignored Congress — the Democrats control both the House and Senate yet Joe Biden is moving full speed ahead issuing executive fiats.  Attorneys general of Texas, Mississippi, West Virginia, Arkansas, Montana and Indiana, signed a letter to Joe Biden reminding him that a US president has "limited power."

Hiding Hunter Biden laying low in LA, starting art career with shady dealer.  As federal prosecutors continue their criminal probes into Hunter Biden's taxes and international business dealings, the President's son — shuttling between Washington DC and a sprawling Hollywood Hills home — is lying low, consulting with lawyers and focusing on his new career in art.  Biden, who turns 51 next week, is prepping a solo show with Soho art dealer Georges Berges, who currently represents Sylvester Stallone.  Berges was once arrested for "terrorist threats" and assault with a deadly weapon in California and has strong ties to China.

Unite and Heal With Show Trials and Fascist Purges.  Joe Biden has called for "unity" and "healing".  And nobody knows as much about healing as Joe whose wife has a doctorate in education from the university that hosts his Biden Institute and the Beau Biden Foundation which was charging $3K for lessons on preventing online child sex grooming even as Hunter's laptop with the Foundation's sticker allegedly showed him doing it.  Except maybe Joe's brother who took out $650,000 in personal loans from a company that bankrupted local hospitals while trading on his brother's name and connections to his campaign. [...] When asked how he defines unity, Joe Biden, with the help of three teleprompters and a small staff communicating with him through his earpiece and a series of frantic signals and hoots, explained that, "If you pass a piece of legislation that breaks down on party lines but it get passed, it doesn't means there wasn't unity — it just means it wasn't bipartisan."

Biden Inc: White House struggles to rein in potential family business conflicts.  The Biden administration only took over the White House last week, but it's already had to grapple with a web of ethical dilemmas created by the complicated business dealings of President Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris's families.  Biden's campaign was dogged by allegations that his youngest son, lobbyist-investor Hunter, profited from the Biden name, specifically in China and Ukraine.  His lucrative role with oligarch-linked Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings, for instance, was central to former President Donald Trump's first impeachment.  And during the transition, it was revealed Hunter was under a federal tax investigation dating back to 2018 into his foreign associations and accusations of money laundering.  Now Biden Inc. is causing problems for the White House.

Joe Biden's Abortion Extremism.  Joe Biden's supposed campaign of unity now extends to forcing American taxpayers to subsidize abortion regardless of their moral qualms.  In an executive order on Thursday [1/28/2021], Biden rescinded the Mexico City policy, which prohibits U.S. foreign-aid money from funding groups that provide or promote abortion in other countries.  President Ronald Reagan was the first to enact the policy, which has been in place under every subsequent Republican president and undone by every subsequent Democrat.  Despite his professed personal opposition to abortion, President Biden is no exception.

Certain Truths Won't Be 'Imposed' by Biden, a 'Devout Catholic'.  President Joe Biden and his press secretary, Jen Psaki, have assured us he is a "devout Catholic" who "attends church regularly."   The question is not new but should be asked again and a credible answer demanded.  How can one be devout about one's faith and not comport with Scripture and the teachings of the Catholic Church? [...] Many Catholic leaders have criticized him for his stand on abortion, same-sex marriage, and transgender equality.  Biden has added to his pro-choice stand a reversal on federal funding of abortion, which he long opposed until the 2020 presidential campaign.

The Editor says...
"Joe Biden is a devout Catholic" is not the answer to every question.  It isn't even true.

Funny how the party that claims to be for the little guy always supports the billionaires.  [Scroll down]  I have never seen anyone as dangerous in the White House as Joe Biden in his first nine days as he signs executive order after executive order, some 40 now at last count.  He has stacked his cabinet with radical leftists pushing the green agenda to destroy America.  He sends out John Kerry, with multiple mansions, a yacht and a private jet, to tell the public that is good for them that he is destroying their jobs.  After all, he drove a Tesla from Massachusetts to D.C.  On Fox News, I heard left-wing Juan Williams say he didn't really care about Kerry's or anyone else's lifestyle, even as they are dictating how all of us should live our lives.  [...] And no matter how often all these supposedly smart cabinet members, as well as Biden himself, his vice president, Kamala Harris, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and others repeat that we have to get rid of oil and coal to control temperatures and the climate, not one sock puppet at the Washington Post or any other journalist, including at Fox, ask for scientific evidence to support their theory and destructive policies.  There is no scientific evidence, so they never ask.  They just go along.

Biden warned brother over business dealings: report.  President Biden warned his younger brother Frank Biden not to get involved in any business deals that would dog the family before the younger Biden touted his relationship with the commander-in-chief in an Inauguration Day ad, according to a new report.  The former veep, whose scandal-scarred son Hunter Biden is under federal investigation for potential tax fraud, reportedly issued the stark warning to his younger brother on the campaign trail.

Hunter Biden Continues To Hold Stake In Chinese Private Equity Firm, Records Show, Despite Reports That He Was Planning To Divest.  Hunter Biden continues to hold a 10% stake in the Chinese private equity firm BHR Partners, Chinese business records show, despite multiple reports from December suggesting he was divesting his position in the company.  Both the Daily Mail and Fox News reported in late December that Hunter Biden was in the process of offloading his stake in BHR. Both outlets cited an unnamed source with Hunter Biden and his business dealings.  But Hunter Biden continues to hold his equity stake in BHR through his company, Skaneateles LLC, as of Wednesday, according to Qixinbao and Baidu, two independent services that provide business records on Chinese corporations based on China's National Credit Information Publicity System.

One week in, Biden administration shows its exquisite cruelty.  Joe Biden was inaugurated a week ago, and like the dictator his handlers have long yearned to install, his has started out as a cruel administration.  His 22 executive orders so far, more than any other president in history, have already sent tens of thousands of jobs down the drain with coldhearted carelessness.  He stopped construction of the Keystone XL pipeline with the stroke of his pen.  He has put all those who were working on the border wall out of work.  As all those who opposed his candidacy suspected, he is doing China's bidding.  Of course he is; the Chinese own him.  Every single person he has appointed to his Cabinet is aligned with China as well.  It is quite likely that Biden has no idea how catastrophic the E.O.s he has apparently signed have already been for blue-collar workers across the country.  Biden's handlers are leading him around by the nose, putting the words they compose on his teleprompter, which he has difficulty reading.  It took the Obama administration a year to do this much damage.

House GOP Calls on UPenn to Turn Over Records on Biden Center and China Funding.  Top Republicans on three House investigative committees are demanding that the University of Pennsylvania release funding records on the school's Penn Biden Center, a policy institute launched by President Joe Biden in 2017.  In a letter sent Thursday [1/28/2021] to University of Pennsylvania president Amy Gutmann, the lawmakers also asked for records related to the recent surge in donations to the university from China as well as information on any contracts and agreements between Penn and the Chinese government.  The university has received over $72 million from China since the Penn Biden Center opened — up from $21 million in the same time frame prior — prompting questions from watchdog groups and lawmakers about whether the uptick had any relation to the center.

Joe Biden is collaborating with Russia!  And the reporters don't care.
Off to a Bad START: Putin Schools Biden with One Phone Call.  According to Russian news service Ria Novosti, on Tuesday, the presidents of the Russian Federation and the United States, Vladimir Putin and Joe Biden, held a telephone conversation.  During the conversation, Biden and Putin agreed to a five-year extension of START-3, until 2026, "100% on Russian terms, without additions, in the form in which it was originally signed."  As a result of the call, the authorized Duma committees were ordered to urgently take the necessary steps to extend START-3.  On that same day, Putin submitted to the State Duma a bill on the ratification of START-3 through 2026; it immediately passed.

Biden Has to Rely on Note Cards for Simple Introductions to Executive Orders.  We reported during the campaign on Joe Biden's frequent confusion, misstatements, gaffes and fits of anger when challenged by a question.  But he was able to have limited debates thanks to the virus and hide out in his basement for a good part of the campaign.  When he did venture out, it often didn't go well. [...] He had frequent problems getting basic facts and numbers correct.  As we reported yesterday, that hasn't gotten better since.  He got confused about how many doses of the Wuhan coronavirus vaccine he was ordering, first saying that they were getting 100 billion, then saying, correctly 100 million.  After that he said, twice that would then be enough for 300 Americans.  He then corrected that to 300 million.  Now there's this video today that is more than a little troubling.  Here he is apparently needing to read off of note cards just to know what executive orders he's signing.  [Video clip]

Frank Biden uses his brother Joe's name in Inauguration Day ad for law firm.  The Biden family has done very well for themselves with the help of Joe Biden's name and connections.  Now there is another example of a family member cashing in on the family connection.  An ad for a Florida law firm featured Joe Biden's brother Frank touting their relationship.  The ad ran on Inauguration Day.  Subtle, eh?  The ad is on behalf of the Berman Law Group based in Boca Raton, Florida.  Biden is a non-attorney adviser to the firm.  Frank Biden has a home in Florida.  In 2019 lawyers with the Berman Law Group filed a lawsuit alleging a link between controlled burns of sugar cane by the sugar industry and health issues of surrounding residents.  Frank Biden joined the law group in 2018 as a senior adviser.  Biden has spoken about the lawsuit since it was filed.  As a matter of fact, he spoke about the lawsuit publicly the same day Joe Biden launched his environmental plan during his campaign.  "Our request is simple, and it's easily accomplished:  Stop burning the cane," Frank Biden said.  At the time he was asked if there was any coordination between the lawsuit and the Biden presidential campaign.  No, no, that isn't what is happening here, he said.  The timing of the lawsuit and Biden's release of his environmental policy was only a coincidence.

Who's in charge?  Biden ear piece tells him to salute Marines; Instead he says: 'Salute the Marines'.  Some viewing the inauguration on Jan. 20 noticed that Joe Biden was wearing an earpiece.  Some also noted that he didn't salute Marines upon entering the Capitol building but instead said "salute the Marines."  One Twitter user noted:  "He is using an ear piece!!!! Watch on C-span @ ~3.5 hours in, as Joe Biden enters the capitol building he DOES NOT SALUTE the Marines standing there.  Instead as he enters the building he says "Salute the Marines."

The Editor says...
If it is true that Biden wears an earpiece and his handlers tell him what to do, minute-by-minute, then the earpiece is connected to a radio, and the operating frequency of that radio link should be relatively easy to discover.  Need I say more?  If I get arrested for speculating about this subject, that will prove we're right:  He really is somebody's puppet.  Even more so than Barack H. Obama.

Dem Sen. Tammy Duckworth 'profoundly disappointed' Biden Cabinet doesn't include Asian Americans.  Sen. Tammy Duckworth said she's "profoundly disappointed" President Biden hasn't chosen a person of Asian American or Pacific Islander descent to fill his Cabinet positions.  The Illinois Democrat, an Army combat veteran of Thai descent, told CBS News in an interview Tuesday [1/26/2021] that Mr. Biden's decision not to appoint a Cabinet secretary who is Asian American or Pacific Islander, or AAPI, signals to the community that they aren't important.  "Yes, I am profoundly disappointed also that there is not a member of the AAPI community at the Cabinet secretary level," Ms. Duckworth said.  "And I think that for a Cabinet that is so historically diverse, to not have someone of AAPI descent at the Cabinet level is a real missed opportunity.

Oh, no.  White people!  How could this happen?
Report: West Wing Offices in Joe Biden's White House Are Occupied Mostly by White People.  An analysis of West Wing offices thus far handed out to senior advisers demonstrates that President Joe Biden's innermost circle of aides with prized real estate in the building is mostly white.  Out of 22 offices on the first and second floors, only four offices, including one occupied by Vice President Kamala Harris, are held by nonwhite individuals.  The rest — a supermajority of 18 such West Wing offices — are occupied by white people, according to Politico.

Buyer's Remorse?  Let's Blame the Press.  [Scroll down]  Evidence of legacy news media propaganda during the four years of the Trump administration are legion.  Reporting about the Biden family influence-for-graft business was nonexistent.  In fact, Joe's brother and his son received millions of dollars from China, the Ukraine, and Russia. [...] The legacy media didn't bother to mention that Hunter Biden is under federal investigation, and that Joe may be implicated.  Hunter Biden's laptop had been abandoned and its contents were legally disclosed.  The contents revealed that Joe Biden was actively involved in Hunter's business dealings — even to the point of sharing an office with a Chinese businessman.  The laptop even disclosed that a percentage of the business proceeds were to go to Joe.  Yet Joe has always claimed he had no involvement in Hunter's business.  The legacy media spiked stories on the subject and social media censored anyone attempting to report it.

Joe Biden sure does a lot of favors for China.  I wonder why.
Insane: Joe Biden Signs Executive Order Banning the Term "China Virus".  Joe Biden signed an executive order today [1/26/2021] that banned the term "China virus."  It's not clear how this will help with the pandemic.  The coronavirus is widely believed today to have been created in a lab in Wuhan China.  This was one of his 37 executive orders in six days.

Who is running the Biden administration?  Is it Joe Biden?  Maybe, but many question whether he has the mental capacity and the energy to run the show.  In [a recent] post about the Biden administration's early hard-left initiatives, I speculated that Susan Rice, Ron Klain, or some combination of the two are determining Biden's domestic policy agenda under pressure from the left.  On the foreign policy side, no known policy has yet emerged about which to speculate.  Ric Grenell, who until recently was the acting DNI, believes that Rice is dictating both domestic and foreign policy.  Rice is Biden's White House Domestic Policy Council director, so domestic policy falls under her jurisdiction.  Rice's experience, however, is in the areas of foreign policy and national security.  Thus, it's plausible to believe that she is a major player in these areas, as well.  Given Rice's lack of experience and expertise in domestic policy, what I wonder is whom she is looking to for guidance in this area.  She may be looking to her former boss, Barack Obama.

Barack H. Obama, in turn, appeared to make very few decisions without consulting Valerie Jarrett, who was always close by, because she lived with the Obamas in the White House.  That's just weird.

"Kiss My Ear!": Biden Rambles and Jumbles Speech During COVID Press Conference.  During a coronavirus press conference on Tuesday [1/26/2021], President Joe Biden mumbled and jumbled through a speech, making little sense.  At one point, Biden appeared to be calling out a lawmaker who refused to wear a mask as he incoherently rambled about kissing his ear.  "One Congressman pointed out, he used very colorful term to say, 'wearing a mask, I tell them to kiss my ear, I'm not going to wear a mask.'  Well, guess what, not very American.  The fact is, you want to be patriotic, you're gonna protect people," Biden said.

Some Inconvenient Comments Surface Involving Joe Biden and His Executive Orders.  According to Joe Biden, Joe Biden is a dictator.  No, that's not some misleading snark being delivered by the nebulous "right wing" media.  Rather, it's a statement based in an inconvenient past commentary offered by the president delivered prior to taking office.  In October of 2020, Biden appeared for a "town hall" with ABC News.  This is what he had to say about the use of executive orders without consensus.  [Video clip]  The initial question posed relates to raising taxes.  Biden then segues into a general spill about how he believes you can't just do things via executive order.  He ends by citing the need for consensus, a clear punt to the idea that he needs the legislature to actually legislate vs. him just enacting his will.  But what's his actual record now that he's president?  Biden signed 17 executive orders in his first few days in office compared to just one for Donald Trump.

Biden's False Catholicism.  [Scroll down]  Just as Biden dared black voters not to support him at the risk of their racial identity, Biden dared Catholic voters not to elect him despite his obvious qualifications of personal religiosity and chumminess with the Pope.  At the same time his campaign was protecting Biden from chancing specifics about his policy positions, there was a steady stream of video shots of Biden wryly crossing himself, and irreligious news outlets publishing smarmy profiles taking reverent note of the ever-present rosary in Biden's pocket and his weekly attendance at Mass.  At the first White House briefing on the evening of the inauguration, press secretary Jen Psaki batted away a legitimate question about Biden's promise to restore federal funding for abortion with, "'I will take the opportunity to remind all of you that he is a devout Catholic.'"  But that's the point:  has anyone taken the opportunity to remind Joe Biden about being a devout Catholic?  Archbishop Gomez's statement may have been his attempt to do that.

Marjorie Taylor Greene:  Articles of Impeachment Against Biden Prompted by 'Pattern of Abuse of Power'.  Newly-elected Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) told NTD that her decision to introduce articles of impeachment against President Joe Biden was motivated by what she claimed was "abuse of power."  Greene introduced articles of impeachment on Jan. 21, the day after Biden's inauguration, with her office announcing in a statement that the articles concern the president's alleged actions involving abuse of power "by allowing his son, Hunter Biden, to siphon off cash from America's greatest enemies Russia and China."  In the interview with NTD, Greene elaborated on this, saying, "we cannot have a president of the United States who is compromised, and has shown a clear pattern of behavior, which is his using his position of power to help his son, Hunter Biden, also his brother and himself, to make a lot of extra money through corrupt business deals with foreign countries."

Rule by Decree:  Joe Biden Sets Record for Executive Orders in First Week.  President Joe Biden has issued more executive orders in his first week in office — not yet complete, as of this writing — than any of his 45 predecessors.  As of January 25, 2021, Biden has "issued 33 executive orders, actions, proclamations, memoranda and agency directives," according to CNN.  Twenty-one of these, according to the White House website, are executive orders.

Joe Biden Mumbles to Himself, Grapples with His Pen as He Sits Down to Sign Executive Orders.  78-year-old Joe Biden signed a series of executive orders on Tuesday as he trashed Americans as racist, morally deprived people.  Biden mumbled to himself and grappled with his pen as he sat down to sign the orders.  'Wait a minute... tryin to put my pen away here,' Biden mumbled to himself as he struggled to put his pen away for 10 seconds straight.  Joe Biden's mental capacity is rapidly declining yet the media chooses to ignore his obvious signs of dementia.

Grenell Has a Theory About Who's Running a 'Shadow Presidency' in the Biden Administration.  Former Acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell believes that the person calling the shots in the White House is not the president or vice president, but rather, Susan Rice.  The former Obama national security adviser is now the White House Domestic Policy Council director and Grenell called that "a joke."  "Look, I've said it before but I think it's worth repeating... she's been given a portfolio as to domestic policy.  We all know that that's a joke," he said Monday on Fox News.  Though she lacks experience in domestic policy, "she's run the national security portfolio and certainly has run the U.N. portfolio," Grenell said.  "She knows the State Department and certainly wants to be the secretary of state," he added, "so there's no question that she's running domestic and foreign policy."

Ric Grenell doubles down on claim Susan Rice is the 'shadow' president calling the shots.  Former acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell said that, based on President Joe Biden's initial executive actions, he believes someone else is actually setting the agenda — Susan Rice.  Grenell raised eyebrows earlier this month when he first said he believes that Rice, who was President Obama's UN ambassador and national security adviser and is now serving as Biden's domestic policy director, is calling the shots in the current administration.  "Susan Rice has been tapped to do domestic policy, and what is really interesting about that is she's got no experience in domestic policy," Grenell, who served as acting DNI and U.S. ambassador to Germany under former President Trump, said.  "She is going to be somebody who is incredibly influential.  Remember that she was National Security advisor so she knows that entire apparatus."  Grenell repeated his views Monday [1/25/2021] in an interview with Fox News' Maria Bartiromo.  [Video clip]

Does Joe Know?  Does the mentally impaired Joseph R. Biden know that he was put into the presidency by a small committee* of hard Left operatives, and is currently serving as a figurehead, as all decisions about policy and personnel are made by others? [...] My bet is that Joe does not know.  Why?  Because committee frontman and marketing director Barack Obama in a recent interview with Stephen Colbert explained his ideal third term:  "I used to say if I can make an arrangement where I had a stand-in or frontman or frontwoman and they had an earpiece in and I was just in my basement in my sweats looking through the stuff and I could sort of deliver the lines while someone was doing all the talking and ceremony, I'd be fine with that because I found the work fascinating."

More about Obama speculating about his third term.

Operation Warp Speed staff:  We had 300-plus meetings with Biden's team reviewing the plan.  Did the outgoing Trump administration leave Joe Biden and his COVID-19 team without a plan to deal with the pandemic?  For the first week of the new administration, the messaging has emphasized the absence of any logistical plans, inventory control, or any coherent guidance.  White House officials tell reporters anonymously that the Biden team had to "start from scratch."  That's utter and complete malarkey, officials from Operation Warp Speed tell National Review today.  They held over 300 meetings with Biden's transition team members and laid out a clear plan for them to follow.  Furthermore, the results prove their plan worked.

So How's Biden's First Week Going?  A Side-By-Side Look At What He Promised Versus What He's Doing.  It's been less than a week since Joe Biden's inauguration.  In that time, how has Biden's campaign rhetoric matched his actions in office?  I'm not fooling around with "pants on fire" or childish Pinocchio ratings like the legacy media does (but, outrageously, won't now that Biden is in office).  He either lied or he didn't.  As adults you can make up your own minds.  During the campaign, Biden promised that he had a plan to "change the course" of the COVID pandemic.  But once in office, he admitted that "there is nothing we can do" to change the pandemic's course (trajectory is a synonym of "course" as used here).  So, he had no plan.

Caution:  This item comes from CNN and is replete with bias.
Biden's authority is on the line already in [the] first full week of [his] presidency.  As his first full week in the White House begins, Joe Biden already faces critical early tests of a presidency premised on political compromise and uniting Washington to fight the pandemic.  The President's team Sunday appealed for two things that may ultimately be elusive:  time to stand up an aggressive attempt to finally turn around the Covid-19 nightmare and Republican buy-in for his $1.9 trillion economic relief plan.  In the week ahead, Biden is expected to unleash a new blitz of executive actions to deliver momentum to his new administration — on Monday, for instance, removing the ban on transgender people serving in the military.

I have no doubt that Mr. and Mrs. Biden believe it, too, and they don't care.
At Least One Third of the Nation Believes Joe Biden Stole the Election — Unchanged from December.  One third of the nation believes that Joe Biden won the presidency due to election fraud, according to a Monmouth poll released on Monday [1/25/2021].  The number is even larger amongst Republicans, 72 percent of whom believe that the election was rigged.  The polling firm also found that ten percent of America will never accept Biden as president.

Biden administration can't say how many COVID-19 vaccines US has in reserve.  White House press secretary Jen Psaki on Monday admitted that the Biden administration does not know how many COVID-19 vaccinations the US has in reserve.  Psaki made the startling revelation during a briefing with reporters at the White House, where she was repeatedly pressed on the nation's lagging coronavirus vaccine rollout.  "Is there at least a ballpark amount that officials are aware of how much vaccine there is?" one reporter asked.  "We've been here for five days to evaluate the supply so that we can release the maximum amount while also ensuring that everyone can get the second dose on the FDA-recommended schedule," Psaki said of what President Biden had said would be his top priority, before she then tried to lay the blame on the Trump administration.

White House still can't say where COVID-19 vaccine supply stands.  White House press secretary Jen Psaki on Tuesday again lacked answers on how many doses of the coveted coronavirus vaccine the US has in reserve, one day after admitting that the Biden administration didn't know how many shots were on hand.  At her daily briefing, Psaki repeatedly danced around requests for hard numbers on the available jabs, at one point punting to a briefing by President Biden scheduled for later in the day.  "The president is going to have more of an update later this afternoon," she said, when asked point-blank how many doses are currently in the US stockpile.

This is the main reason he got the job:
Joe Biden signs whatever's put in front of him.  To begin his largely symbolic, retribution-based term of office, "President" Biden issued 17 executive orders on his first day.  There can't be any real doubt in peoples' minds that Biden didn't write or conceive any of these.  The 17 E.O.s presented to him in a painfully choreographed, ostentatiously grandiose fashion on his opening day in office were quite obviously prepared by his Progressive-minded operatives well in advance, his group of unelected, unaccountable sycophants who will control the puppet strings for as long as Biden is able to sit upright and remain awake behind the desk. [...] Looking at the list of orders, one is struck by their uniformity, their sameness:  every one of them is a pander to a voting bloc, a cave to a Progressive constituency for the sake of political correctness or to further the appearance of compassion or a supposed enlightened understanding of humanity.  Missing from all of them is any concrete action that makes America safer or more prosperous or enhances our national security or improves our position of energy independence or creates jobs or reduces the tax burden on the average wage-earner or moves to strengthen our fundamental constitutional rights of free speech, self-protection, and the right to peacefully assemble.  Not a single executive order redounds to the concrete benefit of the country as a whole.  Instead, all of them amount to nothing more than political sleight-of-hand, smoke and mirrors, activity and movement without meaning.

Biden Signs Executive Orders But There Is No Evidence He Has Any Idea What He's Signing.  What a clown show.  Joe Biden, signed a number of Executive Orders last week but there is no evidence he has any idea what he was signing.  Joe Biden signed 15 Executive Orders on Wednesday alone, his first day in office.  These orders involved providing billions of US taxpayer money 'to tackle the climate crisis', preventing discrimination 'on the basis of gender identity', and forcing federal workers to wear masks for months.  Per the official register only nine Orders have so far been recorded, all from January 20:  Biden's first Executive Orders were very unpopular popular, further distancing Biden from average Americans who already believe he stole the 2020 election based on evidence of election fraud.

Biden administration blames delay in vaccine rollout on Trump White House.  Members of the Biden administration on Sunday [1/24/2021] admitted they are behind in getting the coronavirus vaccine into the arms of Americans — but blamed the delay on the Trump White House.  Ron Klain, President Biden's nominee for White House Chief of Staff, said the process to distribute the vaccine — particularly outside of nursing homes and hospitals out into the community as a whole — "did not really exist" when the new team entered the White House.  "As every American has seen, the way in which people get the vaccine is chaotic; it's very limited.  We've seen this factor all over the country where millions of doses have been distributed.  About half of that has been given out," Klain said on NBC News' "Meet the Press."

Joe Biden Makes Not Wearing a Mask Acceptable Again.  Since the start of COVID-19 in 2020, journalists and other Democrats have taken it upon themselves to snitch on anyone (meaning Republicans) who didn't wear a mask and promptly accuse them of recklessly endangering the lives of others.  Now that Joe Biden is president, it appears that snitching is no longer cool, and not wearing a mask is acceptable so long as you're a Democrat doing it for a good reason, like "celebrating" a Democratic victory.  After Biden and his family were photographed without masks at the Lincoln Memorial on Wednesday — in violation of the federal mask mandate that he himself had just approved via executive action — White House press secretary Jen Psaki dismissed a reporter's question about Biden's refusal to follow the rules.

It's Happening Already:  Joe Biden Calls a Lid Four Days Into Presidency.  Joe Biden's campaigning from his basement and frequent lids, where Biden was kept away from the media, were a common punchline in conservative media.  "How can Joe run a campaign from his basement and hiding from the media?"  "How can he be trusted to run the country if he can't handle a campaign?"  Even when he did leave the basement he got questions about milkshakes.  There were times when Joe Biden wouldn't be seen for days.  His campaign told us that it was because of debate prep, but no one actually believed it.  But the campaign is over now.  Regardless of whether you believe Biden was legitimately elected, he has the job he applied for, the job we were told repeatedly by his campaign he was fit to handle. [...] Biden and his campaign assured the country he was perfectly fit and able to handle the duties of president, and yet Biden is already being hidden from the media four days into the job.

The Editor says...
If you reflexively believe anything a Democrat says, you're a simpleton.  "Biden and his campaign assured the country he was perfectly fit...."  Of course they were obviously lying.  If you voted for Biden anyway, you're either a chronically misinformed TV viewer, an irrational Trump hater, an irrational pro-abortion extremist, a loyal union goon who does whatever he's told, or an America-hating socialist who knew in advance that Biden wouldn't be in charge anyway.  At least not for long.  (The Big Guy is nearly 80 and Harris can't wait to take over.

Biden Just Picked A CIA Director With a 7-Year-Long Relationship with Chinese Communist Party Fronts.  Bill Burns — Joe Biden's pick to lead the Central Intelligence Agency — serves as the President of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace which has over a decade-long relationship with the China-United States Exchange Foundation and other Chinese Communist Party-linked groups.  Burns has served as President of the think tank since 2014, overseeing its involvement with the China-United States Exchange Foundation (CUSEF) which dates back to at least 2009.

The real Joe Biden.  If there's any Joe Biden pose more phony than his purported moderation, it's his purported decency.  Biden is not a decent person.  Plenty of examples to support this statement. [...] We have replaced a lying scoundrel of a president with a lying scoundrel of a president.  The difference?  One, in his present incarnation, takes mostly conservatives positions; the other, in his present incarnation, takes almost exclusively left-liberal ones.

Media Proclaim Biden 'Most Religiously Observant' President, Compare Him to the Pope.  Since Joe Biden's inauguration, the rhetorical tongue bath he's received in the press has been a sight to behold.  I'm not sure it tops Barack Obama's first few days on the job, but it's [very] close, and it's the polar opposite of the treatment Donald Trump was privy to. [...] Biden is not a Catholic in any real sense of the word.  He's a typical liberal that picks and chooses what he likes like from Christianity is some kind of buffet.  The church is more of a social club than fits one's political sensibilities than it is an organization of infallible truth in God.  Biden is free to be that kind of "Christian," but he's not free to pretend he's devout or observant when he's clearly not. [...] Biden can't even hold to the most basic of tenants of his religion.  That doesn't make it him observant.  It makes him a heretic if you want to get technical.  There is no such thing as "liberal" Christianity.

New York Times feels the wrath of angry libs after story on Biden wearing a 'luxury' watch.  Reporters for left-wing publications and other liberal critics tore into The New York Times after the paper published a story focusing on an expensive Rolex watch worn by President Joe Biden.  Reporter Alex Williams, in a story headlined, "Is That a Rolex on Biden's Wrist?" claimed that the president is "breaking from prevailing presidential tradition" by wearing a brand of watch often associated with luxury.  "At his inauguration, Mr. Biden laid his hand on the family Bible wearing a stainless steel Rolex Datejust watch with a blue dial, a model that retails for more than $7,000 and is a far cry from the Everyman timepieces that every president not named Trump has worn conspicuously in recent decades," wrote Williams.

Buyer's Remorse Sets in Over Joe Biden, But It's Much too Late for the Crying.  Elections have consequences.  That's not a new adage, but it's certainly one that's extremely relevant right now.  Joe Biden has been in office for all of four days, and he's already destroyed tens of thousands of jobs while putting hundreds of thousands of other jobs in jeopardy.  His moves in the energy sector alone promise to kill industry and raise the cost of living for everyone.  He even managed to destroy women's sports in between his moves to blow up our immigration enforcement.  The myth of Biden being a moderate took all of a few days to get blown to bits.

Biden: Oh By The Way, I Can't Do Anything About the Pandemic.  Now he tells us.  Biden and the Democrats had one messaging ace up their sleeves.  Backed by their media, they falsely claimed that President Trump had mishandled the pandemic leading to hundreds of thousands of deaths and that once they were in charge, they would get everything right.  Granted, they couldn't actually explain what they would do differently except order everyone to wear masks on federal property (before violating their own rules.)  Now, a few days later, we're down to the admission that they don't have an actual plan for fighting the coronavirus beyond pushing pork to their base.

Biden Promises Pain:  America's new placeholder president speaks.  Joseph Robinette Biden Jr., 78, was installed North Korea-style as the placeholder president of the United States of America on January 20, surrounded by 25,000 U.S. troops, along with hundreds of socially-distancing well-wishers in front of an empty National Mall populated with a vast forest of planted American flags to distract from the fact that no one was there.  How long he will last before Nancy Pelosi invokes the 25th Amendment to replace him with the predatory Obama wannabe Kamala Harris is anyone's guess.  The speech came as the Washington Post admitted hours after militia members were charged in connection with the January riot that former President Donald Trump had nothing to do with the civil disturbance that delayed our Potemkin parliament's certification of electors a few hours.  This was, of course, the riot after which Biden, statist simpleton that he is, scolded lawmakers who thought they were running for their very lives for not stopping to put face masks on.

Biden Rescinds Trump Order Banning Chinese Communist Involvement In US Power Grid.  President Biden has revoked a Trump-era executive order that sought to keep foreign countries and companies out of America's bulk power systems — principally entities associated with the Chinese Communist Party — as part of his "Executive Order on Protecting Public Health and the Environment and Restoring Science to Tackle the Climate Crisis.  The executive order, which executes key tenets of President Biden's climate change agenda, was released on the former Veep's first day in office.

The Editor says...
Joe Biden is in a big hurry to help the Chinese.  I wonder why.

Biden removes military flags from Oval Office on first day as president.  President Joe Biden removed the U.S. military branch flags from the Oval Office on Wednesday [1/20/2021], a staple in the office during Donald Trump's term.  The missing flags were first reported by the Washington Post, who noted the absence of the flags that had been on the left side of the office near the window for years. [...] Most modern presidents have kept just two flags in the Oval Office — the American flag and the presidential seal typically displayed behind the Resolute Desk.  However, Presidents John F. Kennedy, Lyndon Johnson and Richard Nixon all kept military battle flags in the office during their terms.  President Dwight D. Eisenhower, who fought as a five-star general in World War II, displayed the Army flag alone across from his desk.

Biden Kills Up to 70,000 Jobs on First Day in Office.  President Joe Biden's first day in office may have been historic in more ways than one: he may have set a single-day record for the number of jobs killed by an American president.  Biden revoked the permit for the Keystone XL pipeline, as promised.  In so doing, he killed some 11,000 direct jobs that the pipeline's construction was to have created, and an estimated 60,000 indirect jobs in secondary, related industries.  Over 1,000 workers already on the job — mostly union workers — will be laid off as a result of the decision, even if it is litigated, as many expect it will be, in the courts.  Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) confronted Secretary of Transportation nominee Pete Buttigieg over the Keystone XL decision on Thursday morning, during Buttigieg's confirmation hearing.  If the administration was serious about infrastructure, Cruz asked, why was it killing an infrastructure project with "good, paying union jobs"?

Biden signs blank papers
Video And Images Allegedly Show Joe Biden Signing Blank Pages During His First Day In Office.  President Joe Biden signed more than a dozen executives orders on his first day in office, some of which reverse former President Trump's policies.  Biden signed a total of 15 executive orders, which his transition team announced ahead of his inauguration as part of the new administration's plan for the first 100 days in the White House. [...] But what caught the eye of the internet sleuths is the allegations that Joe Biden was signing blank pages.  [Video clip]  The mainstream media protected the newly elected President and didn't write a thing about these allegations.

Biden, the Bishops, and the New Face of Catholicism.  The Catholic Church in America has been thrust into a new and unprecedented crisis — namely the election of Joseph Biden to the presidency.  If not dealt with properly, Biden's presidency will cause serious damage to the very truth of what it means to be Catholic.  Of course, I am referring to the fact that while Biden professes the Catholic faith, he fully supports legalized abortion, same-sex "marriage" and transgenderism, and vowed that he will do all he can to advance these causes during his administration.  Nonetheless, Biden's practice of Catholicism will be on display for the whole world to observe — as he attends Mass and receives Holy Communion.

The Editor says...
If you're a leader in the Catholic Church, and you don't support legalized abortion, same-sex "marriage" and transgenderism, the you have no choice but to expel Joe Biden from your church, and do so in a very public manner, as a message to everyone else.  Otherwise you stand for nothing.  If you support Joe Biden, no matter who you are, you abet and enable the whole socialist Democrat platform.  Choose you this day whom ye will serve.*

Hail To The Thief.  On a cold, windy day with a small group of spectators watching from behind barbed wire, Joseph Robinette Biden Jr. swore another in a long series of false oaths before his motorcade passed between a long row of soldiers with their backs to him looking outward for threats.  No inauguration has been this empty in a century of American history.  And at no inauguration have the spectators been outnumbered by a raw display of armed force.  American presidents have been inaugurated in wartime and during actual national emergencies with a better turnout.  Through world wars and wars on terror, Washington D.C. has remained a national capital where the hundreds of millions of taxpayers who labor to pay for its grand edifices, free museums, and lavish lifestyles could briefly come to enjoy a little of the life lived by the ruling class in the Imperial City.  Now the ruling class has made it clear that it doesn't want peasants entering D.C.

The Mock Inauguration.  The conservative Catholic columnist John Zmirak ends his inauguration day column for The Stream with this expression of profound disgust:  ["]So by all means enjoy the mock-inauguration of a corrupt, senile hack as the fruit of ballot-box stuffing and fake COVID panic.  But remember that now we all live in a tinpot Bananas Republic.  And a disciplined, fanatically nationalist, resurgent Red China is smiling.  The virus it shipped worldwi de succeeded beyond its leaders' wildest expectations.["]  I quote Zmirak's peroration because of the openness of his loathing for the administration that began its reign on Wednesday.  Pat Buchanan, Roger Simon, Newt Gingrich, Roger Kimball, and Michael Walsh have all recently produced informative and eloquent columns underscoring the lies, deceit, and intimidation that they associate with the woke Left.  These columnists have also documented the extent of leftist control and underlined the need to resist their odious domination.

It's Clear Based on a Comparison Between President Trump's 2017 Inauguration and Biden's Inauguration that Biden Has No Support and Election Is Suspect.  Everything was different between President Biden's inauguration and any prior inauguration.  Of course, this indicates a total lack of support due to the fact the election was stolen.  A great report at compares the Biden inauguration to President Trump's inauguration in 2017.  The report provided the pictures [below] and says all you have to do is look at the pictures above to know Joe Biden didn't win the election legitimately.  The crowd for President Trump went all the way to the Washington Monument from the Capitol, Biden's gathering was almost nothing.

Trump's inauguration crowd vs Biden's
An empty Biden inauguration for a false victory.  For those who still think Joe Biden won his election legitimately and with popular support, you need only look at the two screen captures to the right, comparing the crowds at the previous presidential inauguration (at the top) and the crowd today at Biden's inauguration.  It is also important to note that the Trump crowd in 2017 was totally normal, comparable to every past public inauguration since such events became occasions of grand splendor.  For Democrat Joe Biden, however, the lack of a crowd is essentially unprecedented.  While past inaugurations were greeted with large enthusiastic crowds of citizens coming to celebrate the democratic and peaceful transition of power, today's event was heralded by wartime security, barbed wire fences, military checkpoints, and a military police guard of 25,000 troops.  Biden officials claimed this tight security was necessary because of the threat of violence.  I ask however:  If 80 million voters swarmed the polls on November 3rd to elect Joe Biden, why does his new administration feel so afraid of the American people?

Biden's militarized inauguration showcased Democrats' insecurity.  Nothing says, "This was a perfectly normal election, and now it's time to come together as a united nation," like having your swearing-in behind 12-foot-high razor wire surrounded by 25,000 troops whose loyalty you doubt.  That's what we witnessed at President Biden's inauguration on Wednesday [1/20/2021]:  a grim testament to the fundamental insecurity and fragility of the re-ascendant liberal elite.  Democrats no doubt hoped that the optics of this military-heavy presidential installation would convince ordinary Americans that the republic is in peril from the populist ferment that sent Donald Trump to the White House in 2016 and garnered more votes four years later than any GOP ticket, ever.  It's a peril that can only be addressed by, in James Comey's lovely phrase, "burning down" the Republican Party.  But the whole aura was less Lincoln and more bananas.  As in banana republic.  Abe Lincoln had fewer troops to defend Washington during the Civil War, even though the Confederate capital of Richmond was just down the road.

GOP Rep Files Articles Of Impeachment Against Joe Biden.  House GOP Rep. Marjorie Greene filed articles of impeachment [1/21/2021] against Joe Biden for his corrupt actions in Ukraine and allowing his son Hunter Biden to receive huge sums of money from foreign powers in exchange for political favors.  "President Joe Biden is unfit to hold the office of the Presidency," she said a statement found on her website.  "His pattern of abuse of power as President Obama's Vice President is lengthy and disturbing.  President Biden has demonstrated that he will do whatever it takes to bail out his son, Hunter, and line his family's pockets with cash from corrupt foreign energy companies," she added.

How Long Before Biden's Executive Orders Are Met With Nationwide Injunctions?  Joe Biden has been busy signing executive orders yesterday and today.  During the Trump era, Democrats streamlined a process of blocking Trump's executive orders through national injunctions.  Here's how it worked:  State Attorneys General from left-leaning states would file lawsuits in friendly courts where left-leaning and judges would promptly issue injunctions that applied to everyone.  This started with an injunction shutting down Trump's ban on entry for certain countries which became known as the "Muslim ban."  Trump revised that executive order but that too was met with a nationwide injunction.  When Trump tried to limit funds going to "sanctuary cities" that was met with a nationwide injunction.  When Trump wanted the Census to ask people if they were citizens, that got an injunction.  And so on.

British tabloids see snub in Biden's rejection of Churchill bust amid Oval Office makeover.  When reporters toured the recently redecorated Oval Office on Wednesday at the White House, they took note of the symbolic changes in scenery that have come to stand in for an incoming U.S. president's view of the nation.  President Biden's choices included a portrait of wartime President Franklin D. Roosevelt and a bust of civil rights hero Rosa Parks.

Joe Biden Is Manufacturing A Crisis At The Border.  On his first day in office, President Joe Biden signed six executive orders on immigration, proposed a sweeping amnesty bill, and ordered the Department of Homeland Security to pause deportations.  That's an awful lot of activity on an issue that he barely mentioned during the campaign.  In doing so, Biden is laying the groundwork for a new border crisis — the very thing his predecessor spent four years trying to avoid.  First, let's set the record straight on the Trump administration's achievements at the border.  While the wall was the only thing the mainstream press focused on — and which now covers 24% of the U.S.-Mexico border — Trump scored multiple victories in securing the border.

Biden Snipes at Reporter Questioning His Vaccine Plan: 'C'mon, Give Me a Break Man'.  President Joe Biden has gotten into his first dustup with the media since taking office.  It happened Thursday [1/21/2021] in the White House when the AP's Zeke Miller pressed Biden about one of the signature promises of his first 100 days — the pledge that 100 million doses of the coronavirus vaccine will be administered in that time.  "You set the goal at 100 million vaccines in the first 100 days — is that high enough?" Miller asked.  "Shouldn't we set the bar higher?  That's basically where the U.S. is right now."  Biden bristled at the question and sniped at Miller in response.  "When I announced it you all said it's not possible," Biden said.  "Come on, give me a break, man.  It's a good start, 100 million."  The president did not engage further.  He got up and left the room as an aide broke up the proceedings by urging reporters out.

Biden spokeswoman refuses to answer abortion policy questions, whips out the 'devout Catholic' card instead.  Joe Biden hates to answer 'hard' questions from the press.  So how's this for a typical Biden dodge?  A reporter from EWTN, a Catholic news broadcaster, asked on day one of Joe Biden's presidency, what his stance would be on two longstanding U.S. laws — the Hyde Amendment, which prohibits taxpayer dollars from bankrolling abortions, and the Mexico City policy, which prohibits taxpayer dollars from paying for abortions abroad.  The response?  White House press secretary, Jen Psaki, whipped out the 'Catholic' card like a cross aimed at Dracula.

Biden's Radical Agenda Ensures a Weaker, Poorer, More Divided America.  When Joe Biden becomes president on Wednesday, he won't waste any time in fanning the flames of division in the United States as he seeks to implement his far-left agenda.  All signals are flashing red, indicating that the incoming administration will govern in both radical poetry and radical prose.  That should make us worry that all his promises to govern not as a partisan, but as an American, will evaporate as the country suffers from an imminent top-down takeover imposed by liberal elites.  That means a weaker America, a poorer America, and a more divided America.

On Morning Biden Takes Over, China Posts Message Confirming He Was Its Choice.  An official Chinese government news source posted a tweet Wednesday revealing the communist regime was thrilled about President Joe Biden taking office.  Xinhua News posted an image of the U.S. Capitol with the words "Good Riddance, Donald Trump!" just hours before the end of Trump's term.  Xinhua is the state-run news agency of China, so the tweet indicates a consensus in the communist government that Biden was strongly preferred over Trump to lead China's chief global competitor.

What does this tell you?
Biden to keep Wray as FBI director: law enforcement source.  President Joe Biden has asked Christopher Wray to stay on as FBI director and he has confidence in the job Wray is doing, the White House said on Thursday [1/21/2021].

Biden Does Not Wear Mask At Lincoln Memorial After Signing Mandate Requiring Masks On Federal Land.  President Joe Biden appeared to not adhere to the federal mask mandate that he signed on Wednesday [1/20/2021] when he visited the Lincoln Memorial.  "The most pressing of his priorities are measures to combat the deadly coronavirus pandemic," The Washington Post reported.  "Biden signed executive actions to require masks on all federal grounds and asked agencies to extend moratoriums on evictions and on federal student loan payments."  The Wall Street Journal noted that the order lasts 100 days and "applies on federal property and on airlines, trains and transit systems traveling between states."  Despite his order, Biden was seen late on Wednesday night visiting the Lincoln Memorial and not wearing a mask while he stood only several feet away from [any] another person.

Biden executive order repeals Trump travel ban.  President Biden rescinded the Trump administration's travel ban against citizens from seven countries just hours after being sworn into office.  Biden on Wednesday afternoon repealed the first executive order that former President Donald Trump signed upon arriving at the White House in January 2017.  The move was one of 17 reversals aimed at altering policies Trump put into effect.  That ban on travel affected countries in northern Africa and the Middle East:  Iran, Iraq, Syria, Libya, Yemen, Somalia, and Sudan.  It was the first of three the Trump administration would set into action on the basis that those countries did not adequately vet travelers headed to the United States.

Biden to Cancel Trump's 1776 Commission That Promotes American Founding Values.  President Joe Biden plans to cancel the Trump administration's 1776 Commission, only two days after the advisory panel released a report calling for a U.S. history education centered on the nation's founding principles.  Biden, who was inaugurated on Wednesday, is expected to sign 17 executive actions, according to a press release.  A number of those actions are a direct reversal of Trump-era policies, including the travel ban on seven predominantly Muslim countries, the construction of barriers along the U.S.-Mexican border, and the 1776 Commission to promote a "patriotic education."  Through his day 1 executive order, Biden will "rescind the Trump administration's 1776 Commission," which "has sought to erase America's history of racial injustice," the Biden-Harris transition team said in a press release.

Joe Biden's Amnesty Bill Elevates Fortune 500, Migrants, but Sidelines Americans.  The amnesty plan pushed January 20 by President Joe Biden includes a few cursory mentions of American families while championing the demands of migrants, employers, and investors.  "The U.S. Citizenship Act of 2021 establishes a new system to responsibly manage and secure our border, keep our [migrant] families and [border] communities safe, and better manage migration across the Hemisphere," says the statement introducing the plan.  The plan mentions families 15 times, nearly all of which refer to foreign families.

Biden signs federal mask mandate, repeals Muslim Ban, and rejoins Paris Climate Agreement.  Joe Biden has signed his first slate of executive actions as president, erasing core aspects of Donald Trump's legacy on the coronavirus pandemic, immigration, climate change, and more with the simple stroke of a pen.  Following an afternoon of ceremonies that included a virtual parade through Washington DC, and the laying of a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia, the new administration immediately got to work at around 17.15 local time (12.15 GMT), rolling out 15 executive orders and two other action items.  "There's no time to start like today," the president said from the Oval Office's Resolute Desk.

I Watched Biden's Inauguration First-Hand:  Haunted and numb in a horribly sanitized city.  As I grabbed some coffee before heading to the Capitol Building to watch the 46th President of the United States of America take his title, the lovely lady behind the counter told me she had never seen anything like this in D.C. in her life.  And all I can say as I stand here now in the freezing cold with a handful of others is that I hope America never has to see anything like this again.  Nothing is as it seems.  It is just horrible, in every sense.  There is no one here.  And I am not saying that in the weird competitive way people talk about crowd sizes as a measure of popularity.  Remember the endless quarrel over the size of Trump's inauguration crowd versus Obama's?  What I mean is that there is literally no one here.  Even pressed up to the gates within sight of the Capitol Building there is barely a handful of Biden supporters — alongside a small gaggle of media, scratching about, trying to find something to film.

How many vice presidents have become president?  Joe Biden was inaugurated as the 46th US president on Wednesday, after previously serving as the vice president during the Obama administration.  Mr Biden, who served under Barack Obama between 2009 and 2017, is the first person in 32 years to be elected president after previously working as vice president.  The last person to work in both roles was George H W Bush, who became president after serving as vice president under Ronald Reagan for eight years.  In addition to Mr Biden and Bush, there have been 13 other US presidents who have gone on to serve as president since George Washington was America's first in 1789.

Cup of Joe.  Biden has one mandate — not to be Donald Trump.  Biden won't be able to settle for that.  The good news for Republicans is that recent Democratic presidents invariably overreach, and provoke a backlash among swing voters.  And the Georgia Senate election and the capitol riot of January 6 has emboldened the left, putting more pressure on Biden to deliver.  Biden has much less of a "mandate" (which are overrated in any case) than either Bill Clinton or Obama.  He also has much less congressional support for his mistakes.  He is Lyndon Johnson in 1965 — about to be made miserable by the far left of his own party.

Biden Calls Us Domestic Terrorists, Then Calls for Unity.  This inauguration speech lasted maybe 15 minutes, it's over, everybody's leaving.  It may be one of the least memorable inauguration speeches that there's ever been.  In this speech Biden called us domestic terrorists and then called for unity in the same breath.  And I tell you, the Dilbert cartoonist, guy named Scott Adams, had a little tweet here saying that Biden had the worst start of a presidency in history, and it hadn't even begun yet.  He wrote this yesterday.  What's Biden done?  One.  "Biden has refused to halt a divisive impeachment."  If Biden were serious about unity, which he's not, they are not.  They're not serious about unity.  The only way we're gonna have unity is if you give up.  If you surrender and acknowledge their legitimacy, if you give up and acknowledge the Washington establishment as your power, as the people that run and rule your life, if you do that, you're gonna be fine.

Biden's inaugural speech: banal, slurred, and slightly vicious.  Although Chris Wallace of Fox News declared that Biden's inaugural speech was "the best inaugural address I ever heard" in 60 years, I have to admit to being less charmed.  His slurred delivery, banal repetition, and vicious edge just didn't work for me.  What can I say?  I wasn't his target audience.  First, lest you doubt me, Chris Wallace really did go all fan girl on Biden.  Mind you, we all saw this coming when he moderated the first debate.  Wallace doesn't like Trump and, in the last year, he stopped trying to hide it:  [Tweet]  Second, let's talk about Biden's delivery.  To give him credit, he remained upright and coherent for the entire 22-minute speech.  I wasn't sure he could, so a big Bravo! for that.

Those who celebrate the Biden presidency will be disappointed.  In my moment of defeat — crushing defeat — I will make a few predictions.  Those who are opposed to the atrocity of abortion, and especially to partial-birth and even post-birth abortion, will soon see that those whom you celebrate will continue, and even expand, these barbaric practices.  Moreover, they will see the oppression of those who refuse to support these acts.  They will see the Little Sisters of the Poor bankrupted by fines and penalties.  Those who are opposed to avoidable wars will see the armed might of the United States turned against enemies who are evil people, but not threats to our nation.  They will see countless Americans sacrificed on the altars of the military-industrial complex, while their orphans and widows weep for them.  Those who believe in the sanctity of family will see the definition of family twisted and distorted until they no longer recognize the concept.  Worse yet, they will be compelled to celebrate these mutilations, because the right to not be offended trumps the right of conscience.

The Phantom Inauguration.  Phantom pain is pain that a person feels in a body part, usually a limb, that is no longer there.  That's kind of how yesterday's Presidential Inauguration felt.  The limb missing was the lack of supporters and even protestors at the event.  BOTH are part of American democracy, and both were totally restricted from the Capitol Mall.  The Inauguration is an American tradition, but regular Americans weren't allowed to be a part.  How wrong is that?  How difficult could it have been to pull off an event that allowed people with 28,000 National Guard troops in place to keep the peace?  Fireworks are great to see... in person.  On television, who cares?  But the paternalistic attitude of Biden, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser, and Speaker Nancy Pelosi urging people to stay home and then if they didn't, locking them out anyway, is very much reflective of the events that lead up to the inaugural, and the approach of this current administration.  The political elites are back, and they're all over making sure you know who is in, and who is out.  Democracy from a distance seems to be the mandate of this bunch.

Biden Signs Executive Orders Ending Trump's Travel Ban, Stopping Border Wall Construction.  President Joe Biden on Wednesday [1/20/2021] signed a series of executive orders on immigration, moving to preserve and fortify the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, to end the so-called "Muslim ban," and to stop construction on the U.S.-Mexico border wall.  Biden's executive orders are in line with campaign promises that he would overturn a number of former President Donald Trump's immigration policies on day one and come as part of a slate of 17 executive orders, memorandums and proclamations the Democrat will issue on his first day.  While the Supreme Court stopped Trump from terminating DACA, Biden's executive order directs the Secretary of Homeland Security to "take all appropriate actions under the law" to "preserve and fortify" the program.  It also calls on Congress to enact legislation providing permanent status and a path to citizenship for people who were brought to the U.S. illegally as children.

Why Does Biden Have A Bust Of An Anti Immigration Radical In The Oval Office?  The corporate press has been churning out puff pieces about the Biden administration since Election Day, and with Biden's inauguration on Wednesday, we're getting a fresh round.  One such article in the Washington Post stands out for what it omits.  The story, a hard-hitting account of how Biden has decorated the Oval Office, mentions that Biden is "nodding to segments of the Democratic Party's base via historic references," and mentions a bust of Cesar Chavez behind the Resolute Desk.  Who was Cesar Chavez?  If you ask a Democrat or a member of the press, they'll tell you he was a courageous labor leader and civil rights activist who helped organize Latino farm workers in California in the 1960s, culminating in the formation of the United Farm Workers union.  Today, he's a folk hero to the left.  What they won't tell you is that he was also a fierce opponent of illegal immigration, which he opposed because it drove down wages for American farm workers and diminished the organizing power of their unions.  He also opposed guest-workers from Mexico, and campaigned fiercely against the Bracero program, a guest-worker scheme put in place during World War II that allowed Mexican farm workers to enter the country legally for employment on American farms and ranches.

Joe Biden Signs Stack of Executive Orders to Roll Back Donald Trump Agenda.  President Joe Biden signed a stack of Executive Orders on Wednesday [1/20/2021], immediately rolling back some of former President Donald Trump's top priorities.  The president signed three executive orders in front of the press as he sat next to a stack of folders which he intended to sign afterward.  "I thought with the state of the nation today, there's no time to waste," Biden said, noting that he wanted to "get to work immediately."  There were at least 15 folders stacked on Biden's desk.  Biden signed executive orders mandating masks on federal property, ordering support for underserved communities to ensure equity and equality in health care and other areas, and an order reversing the Trump Administration's decision to withdraw from the Paris Climate Accord.

New White House Website Contact Form:  State Your Pronouns.  Now that Joe Biden has been inaugurated as president, the White House website contact form wants you to list something in addition to your name, address, phone, and email address:  your pronouns.  That's not the only change the Biden team has made in the digital world of the White House.

Biden Team Comes Up With a Replacement for the Lack of People at the Inaugural.  Joe Biden had difficulty getting anyone out of his events and campaigned mostly from his basement.  His speeches would frequently have more press than guests, looking isolated in their little white circles drawn on the ground.  So how many people was he going to be able to get out for an inauguration?  Biden's team is downplaying the number, claiming the pandemic and security concerns[.]  He's made it mostly virtual, according to reports, and reports are there are no real events the public can officially attend in person.  So instead having a live inaugural with very few people which is what likely would have resulted and which would have been embarrassing, the most popular president in history is going to try to convince us of his popularity with flags standing in for people.  The flags are supposed to represent the states that all the people would be coming from, 200,000 flags from all the 50 states.

200K flags placed on the National Mall ahead of Biden inauguration to represent missing crowd.  Nearly 200,000 flags have been placed on the National Mall ahead of President-elect Joe Biden's inauguration, signifying the tens of thousands of people who won't be able to attend this year's ceremony.  The Presidential Inaugural Committee first announced plans to install the public art display, which has flags representing all the U.S. states and territories, on Jan. 11.  The display was lit up Sunday evening [1/17/2021].

The Editor says...
They should have done this during Biden's campaign rallies, because those crowds were absent, too.

How I Switched From Never-Trump To Never-Biden.  [Scroll down]  This is what flipped me to Trump: Question:  Hunter Biden, your son, was getting paid a lot of money to serve on the board of a Ukrainian energy company facing serious corruption charges.  You were the Vice President, running point on the Ukraine.  The Average Joe hears that and says 'that sounds fishy.'  What's your understanding of what your son was doing?  Answer:  I don't know what my son was doing.  I know he was on the board.  I found out he was on the board after he was on the board.  And that was it.  [Ok, like my mom couldn't give you at least some thumbnail sketch of what I do for a living?  Of course she can.  Hunter "worked" at Burisma for 5 years, and he has no clue at all what he did?  This is a barefaced lie.]  Re-direct Question:  Well you've had a lot of time, isn't this something you want to get to the bottom of?  Answer:  No, because I trust my son.  [This is where he lost me forever. [...] He doesn't trust his son — that's total BS.  And if he does trust his son, after 30 years of drug addiction, then he's the dumbest man on the planet.  But the American public absolutely should not be asked to trust a drug addict.  Period.  This answer is manipulative, evasive and totally dishonest.]

Hunter Biden laptop repairman posts tell-all videos.  The Wilmington, Delaware, repair shop owner who distributed Hunter Biden's laptop contents to the FBI and Trump supporters has emerged on a GoFundMe page to tell his story.  John Paul Mac Isaac has posted a series of videos — titled "The Truth" and "I am Not a Russian" and "I am Not a Hacker" — to dispel what Democrats and President Barack Obama's intelligence kingpins said about him.  "To imply that I'm a hacker and that that information was hacked has had an irreversible impact on my business and my character," Mr. Mac Isaac says in a video.

Derisive mockery:
Most Popular President In History To Be Inaugurated In Secret Behind Giant Wall Guarded By Thousands Of Soldiers.  President-elect Joe Biden will be inaugurated this week, and due to his incredible popularity with the American people, he will be inaugurated in a top-secret location behind a massive 12-foot wall guarded by 30,000 soldiers.  "The reason President-elect Biden has to do this is that he's just so incredibly popular," said Don Lemon on CNN.  "He has so many rabid fans that they might try to rush the stage as they're overcome with enthusiasm and love for Biden who is by far the most beloved candidate who has ever run for President."

The Beginning of the End of Liz Cheney's Political Career in Wyoming — She Sees It Coming.  This has been a work in progress for several years, and Liz Cheney has long been destined to leave the ranks of GOP elected officials with the Trump coalition and its policy agenda in the ascendency.  She is a NeverTrumper at heart — as are many elected GOP officials, particularly in the Senate.  But they all desired to hold on to their elected positions long enough to outlast the Trump Presidency.  That is why so many in the Senate sat by and watched Joe Biden be coronated by the media and Big Tech when everyone connected to the Senate as an institution knows Biden was one of the dumbest individuals EVER to have been a Senator and is currently well on his way to full dementia.

Biden Institute reportedly won't disclose donors even as inauguration looms.  The Biden Institute, a policy research center at the University of Delaware founded by the incoming commander-in-chief, will not disclose its donors once Joe Biden becomes president, according to a new report.  The research center was one of a number of organizations founded by the former veep after he left office in 2017 and is in the middle of a $20 million fundraising campaign trading off its famous namesake.  But unlike other foundations and groups carrying Biden's name, which were shut down in 2019 when he announced his White House bid, the Biden Institute will continue to exist and fundraise as the 78-year-old takes the Oval Office Wednesday — sparking concern that donors trying to curry favor with the administration will continue funneling money to the organization, Politico reported Monday.

Ric Grenell:  Watch out for 'Shadow President' in Biden admin and it's not Kamala.  Former acting-Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell had a telling prediction about who will be the shadow president in the incoming Biden administration.  Speaking with Fox News host Maria Bartiromo about who could be Biden's puppet master as he steps in as the nation's 46th president.  With many already speculating that Kamala Harris, as incoming vice president, may wield more power, Grenell offered up another woman tapped for the Democratic administration.  Grenell's prediction came after Bartiromo set up a question on "Sunday Morning Futures" about how influential other players will be in Biden's administration noting, in particular, that former Obama national security adviser Susan Rice has been tapped by Biden to lead the White House Domestic Policy Council.

Texas Readies for Lawsuits Against Joe Biden's Incoming Administration.  Texas is reportedly preparing for lawsuits against Joe Biden's incoming administration, the San Antonio Express-News reported Friday [1/15/2021].  During his first 100 days in office, President-elect Joe Biden has "vowed to roll back the Trump administration's immigration crackdown, push policies addressing climate change and potentially forgive student debt for thousands of Americans," the article stated.

Frightening Question — Who Will Be Running Biden's Brain?  The only thing that is certain going forward is that there is no middle ground when it comes to the way Americans view the future.  One side seems to think the Republic is headed for a happier, calmer time.  People like me think this once-great country is about to begin its death rattle. [...] The Biden nightmare administration is going to have a lot of moving parts.  None of them, however, are going to be in the new president's brain.  We will all be keeping a close eye on the background players to try and figure out which one is pulling the strings of the drooling puppet POTUS.  Guessing who will be running Grandpa Gropes' brain has turned into a political parlor game in recent weeks.  We've all been making jokes about Biden's need for a food taster whenever he's dining with his vice president.  There's no doubt an element of truth to that.  Kamala Harris hasn't been very good at hiding her ambition these last several months and she's probably already measuring the Oval Office for drapes.

Who We 'Need to Watch' as 'Shadow President' in Biden Administration:  It's Not Who You Think.  In an interview on Fox News' "Sunday Morning Futures," former acting-Director of National Intelligence Ric Grenell weighed in with host Maria Bartiromo about who he thinks will be running what in the Biden administration.  Including the presidency. [...] In less than 72 hours, everything old will be new again.  Except for Biden.  He'll be even older, this go-around.  It's a good thing Kamala Harris and Susan Rice will be there to "assist" the addled old guy.

Biden's COVID-19 'Rescue' Plan Is Based On 5 Big Lies.  Joe Biden went on prime time this week to promote his COVID-19 plans.  For a guy who promises to be honest with the public, he's off to a terrible start.  Since mainstream media fact-checkers are now on their four-year vacation, we'll set the record straight on several key claims he made.  [#1] "You will see it very clearly if you examine what the twin crises of pandemic and this sinking economy have laid bare."  Sinking economy?  Where has Biden been for the past six months?  As the Bureau of Economic Analysis has already reported, the economy grew at a stunning 33.4% in the third quarter of this year — well above anyone's expectations.  The Atlanta Fed's GDPNow pegs growth in the fourth quarter at a very strong 7.4%.

Homeland Security Committee Releases Report Outlining Biden Family Selling U.S. Policy for Personal, Financial Gain.  The Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee finalizes a report [pdf available here] with evidence of Joe and Hunter Biden conducting financial deals with foreign governments.  The report outlines how the Biden family sold access to government policy for personal financial benefit.  Considering the scale of evidence showing massive conflicts of interest, it is quite astounding that Joe Biden is currently 'president-elect.'

Georgia House Rep Will File Articles Of Impeachment Against Biden On January 21st.  While speaking to Newsmax TV, Rep Marjorie Taylor Greene said she would file articles of impeachment against Joe Biden the day after he steps into office.  "Yes I would like to announced on behalf of the American people, we have to make sure our leaders are held accountable," she began.  "We cannot have a President of the United States that is willing to abuse the power of the office of the Presidency and be easily bought off by foreign governments, Chinese and Ukrainian energy companies" [...] Joe Biden isn't even in office, yet Greene's impeachment push already stands on more solid ground than the two attempts by Democrats to impeach President Trump.

What Do We Do with a Pretend President?  The last four years for liberals have been one long temper tantrum. [...] While Trump kept his promises and built the biggest following since the Beatles, the liberals whined and worked in the shadows to steal any chance he had of being re-elected.  And they did it in our faces, blatantly, openly, proudly — with another thoroughly corrupt, establishment, unappealing oldest-and-most-senile-candidate-ever, who couldn't attract a dozen people to a rally but could manage to draw more votes than Obama the Great.  It was the stuff of novels, boring movies, and conspiracy theorists.  It was crazy, absurd, impossible, you-can't-make-this-stuff-up kind of stuff, and it was all real.

You can keep my $2,000 check if you'll just return that election you stole.
Biden Will Introduce $2 Trillion Stimulus Bill With $2,000 Individual Checks.  Aides to President-elect Biden say that he will propose another massive pandemic relief bill costing $2 trillion dollars.  It will include $2,000 individual checks for taxpayers.  Biden will outline more of the plan later on Thursday, but Senate Democrats are also talking seriously about merging pandemic relief with a completely unrelated infrastructure bill.  It's likely the total cost for both measures together will exceed $3 trillion.  Moreover, Democrats are discussing ways to use budget reconciliation to pass most of their legislation.  This would mean the filibuster would be off the table and legislation could pass by a simple majority.

Joe Biden embraces deficit spending: 'We cannot afford inaction'.  President-elect Joseph R. Biden said Thursday that there's almost no such thing as spending too much money right now given the "twin crises" of the coronavirus pandemic and the associated economic fallout.  "There's no time to waste.  We have to act, and we have to act now," Mr. Biden said in a speech in Wilmington, Delaware.  "We cannot afford inaction."  Mr. Biden unveiled additional details about the $1.9 trillion rescue package he released Thursday.  The plan is designed to combat COVID-19 and mitigate the economic damage the public health crisis has caused.

National Mall to be completely closed for Joe Biden's inauguration amid security concerns.  The National Mall in Washington, DC will be completely closed off to the public on Inauguration Day amid ongoing concerns about the prospect of violent protests.  Only security personnel and the media will be allowed to access the traditional gathering place for crowds keen to see the ceremony.  The extraordinary shutdown of the entire mall for the inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden comes as the city and federal authorities act to prevent further violence following the 6 January assault on the Capitol Building.  More than 20,000 National Guard troops have been called up to protect the swearing in of the 46th president on Wednesday 20 January.  The FBI is monitoring threats ahead of the event, including the possibility of armed protests.

The Editor says...
If the Inauguration is as popular as the typical Joe Biden campaign rally, nobody will notice!

GOP Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene to Introduce Articles of Impeachment Against Joe Biden on January 21 Over Abuse of Power.  Freshman Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) announced on Wednesday night she will introduce articles of impeachment against Joe Biden on January 21, 2021 over his abuse of power.  Biden's son Hunter Biden is currently under investigation over the criminal contents contained on his laptop computer that was turned over to federal investigators last year.

Washington Post Says Joe Biden's Catholicism is All About "Healing," But He's Radically Pro-Abortion.  Much is being made of Joe Biden's Catholic faith in the leftist media.  Though the president-elect supports the killing of unborn babies in abortions and wants to force taxpayers to fund their deaths, he continues to promote himself as a compassionate, devout Catholic who cares about the most vulnerable.  And he relies on faithful leftist news outlets to promote this image.  On Monday [1/11/2021], the Washington Post described Biden as a "devout, churchgoing liberal" who is focused on "healing and inclusion," according to Breitbart.  "The country will soon observe for the first time a president who goes to Mass every Sunday, plus on Catholic feast days, and sprinkles conversation casually with scripture, religious hymns and references to religious history," the article states.  While the Post mentioned that many Catholics believe Biden is not a "legitimate Catholic" because of his positions on life, family and religious freedom, it dismissed these criticisms, noting that "Biden could redefine what it means to be a Catholic in good standing."

The U.S. Government is Hopelessly Corrupt.  [Scroll down]  Today, in addition to maximizing profits, the oligarchy wants to control what you read, what you think and what you are permitted to express.  There is an unholy and dangerous alliance combining the media and Big Tech with the national security state, that is, the intelligence services, the military-industrial complex and law enforcement.  It is, quite literally, an effort to abrogate the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution and eliminate free speech.  The United States government has gone beyond authoritarianism towards the Chinese Communist Party model of state capitalism and totalitarianism.  And what better candidate to carry that model forward than Joe Biden, who is already compromised by his close connections with the Chinese government?  Make no mistake, Donald Trump won the 2020 Presidential election.  It was stolen, not only from him, but, more importantly, it was stolen from the American people by the well-organized and well-financed application of massive electoral fraud.

Biden:  Trump 'not above the law.  Justice serves the people — it doesn't protect the powerful'.  President-elect Joe Biden said on Twitter Saturday [1/9/2021] that President Trump is "not above the law," after the House announced it would be bringing articles of impeachment on Monday.  "Our president is not above the law," Biden wrote.  "Justice serves the people -- it doesn't protect the powerful."  But the president-elect has stopped short of calling for Trump's impeachment.

The Editor says...
Nobody has said that Mr. Trump thinks he is "above the law."  Mr. Biden knows quite well that the powerful are protected by something other than Justice.  (Why isn't Hillary Clinton in prison?  How do BLM rioters escape jail time?)  Mr. Trump is merely objecting, on behalf of ten of millions of voters, to the theft of an election.  Is that an offense worthy of impeachment?

Biden Says He Will 'Defeat the NRA' While in Office.  President-elect Joe Biden on Jan. 8 promised to "defeat the NRA," or the National Rifle Association, after being sworn into office. [...] The NRA, which has over 5 million members, seeks to protect and educate about people's Second Amendment rights.

Biden declares that he'll 'defeat the NRA' under his term in office.  In a declaration that is certain to upset throngs of gun owners, President-elect Joe Biden has declared that he'll "defeat" the National Rifle Association during his term.  In response to a tweet from former Rep. Gabby Gifford (D-Ariz.), who was one of 14 people shot in January 2011 during an event in Tucson and whose husband, Democrat Mark Kelly, just won a U.S. Senate seat, Biden's official account pledged to "defeat the NRA."

The Editor says...
Gabby Gifford was shot by a psycho, not someone from the NRA.

Joe Biden's Boosters Wrote His Prodigal Son's Entire Resume.  Hunter Biden profited from his father's political connections long before he struck questionable deals in countries where Joe Biden was undertaking diplomatic missions as vice president.  In fact, virtually all the jobs listed on his resume going back to his first position out of college, which paid a six-figure salary, came courtesy of the former six-term senator's donors, lobbyists and allies, a RealClearInvestigations examination has found.  One document reviewed by RCI reveals that a Biden associate admitted "finding employment" for Hunter Biden specifically as a special favor to his father, then a Senate leader running for president.  He secured a $1.2 million gig on Wall Street for his young son, even though it was understood he had no experience in high finance.  Many of his generous patrons, in turn, ended up with legislation and policies favorable to their businesses or investments, an RCI review of lobbying records and legislative actions taken by the elder Biden confirms.

Joe Biden to unveil COVID-19 economic relief plan worth 'trillions'.  Joe Biden is poised to launch a COVID-19 economic relief plan worth "trillions" of dollars, the president-elect announced Friday [1/8/2021].  The relief plan will target state and local governments as well as provide new support for people who have lost their jobs as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, he said.  Biden's original plan was for a bill under $1 trillion but he said on Friday that "economic research confirms that with conditions like the crisis today, especially with such low-interest rates, taking immediate action — even with deficit financing — is going to help the economy."  Biden, who plans to unveil details on Thursday, has also called for raising the minimum wage to $15 — a campaign promise — and wants to hand out $2,000 in cash payments.  Democrats tried to hand out similar relief checks in the last COVID-19 support package but were unable to get Republicans to agree to the amount.

Joe Biden likens Ted Cruz to Nazi propagandist Goebbels for helping Trump spread 'big lie' about election fraud.  In extraordinarily sharp remarks Friday, President-elect Joe Biden compared Sen. Ted Cruz to Hitler's propaganda master in the way he peddled Donald Trump's "big lie" about election fraud, though Biden stopped short of blaming Cruz for the riot by a pro-Trump mob at the Capitol as many Texas Democrats have done.  Biden called Cruz's effort "shameful."  The Texas Republican led an attempt in the Senate to block congressional certification of Biden's victory in the Electoral College, insisting that widespread doubts about the legitimacy of the election demanded an emergency investigation to allay public concerns.

Biden References Nazi Propaganda Minister Joseph Goebbels as he Attacks Hawley and Cruz.  78-year-old Joe Biden on Friday [1/8/2021] referenced Nazi Propaganda Minister Joseph Goebbels as he attacked Senators Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz.  Biden compared GOP Senators Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz to Nazis because they supported President Trump and his "election falsehoods."  Both Hawley and Cruz exercised their Constitutional right when they objected to Biden's fraudulent electors this week when Congress convened in a joint session.  Biden compared them to Goebbels and said, "It's the Big Lie.  The Big Lie."

Hunter Biden owed hundreds of thousands of dollars to IRS, email shows.  Hunter Biden, now under investigation for suspected tax fraud, owed a "substantial" amount to the IRS in 2018, apparently for 2017 and prior years when he was receiving regular income from a Ukrainian oligarch and Chinese firms tied to the Communist Party, an email shows.  The October 2018 email from his certified public accountant to Mr. Biden, son of President-elect Joseph R. Biden, showed there was miscommunication between the CPA and Hunter.  It also shows the IRS had been assessing Hunter Biden late fees for unpaid taxes.  The CPA told him "The taxes owed are substantial" and listed $600,000 in personal taxes and $204,000 owed for Owasco, Hunter Biden's D.C. law firm.

Biden Fans the Flames, Labels Trump Supporters "Domestic Terrorists".  Joe Biden fanned the flames on Thursday following Wednesday's chaos at the Capitol and labeled Trump supporters "domestic terrorists."  Not all protesters who entered the US Capitol building were Trump supporters.  According to a former FBI agent who was on the ground at the US Capitol, at least one bus load of Antifa goons infiltrated the Trump rally as part of a false flag operation.  The New York Post reported that at least two known Antifa members were spotted among the pro-Trump protesters yesterday.

An Administration Of Plagiarists:  What This Means For The Country.  [Joe] Biden has been stealing other people's work since before he became a public figure.  He infamously had to withdraw from the 1988 presidential race after it became clear that during a debate in 1987 he had lifted passages from a speech made by British Labor Party leader Neil Kinnock.  Biden also ran into trouble during law school for plagiarizing from an article from the Fordham Law Review.  Earlier this year, he was "accused of copying the words of former New Democratic Party leader Jack Layton," Canada's National Post reported in August.  "Social media was quick to point out that the words" from his closing speech at the Democratic National Convention "were eerily similar to ones found in a letter Layton wrote before he died in 2011."  Biden also plagiarized President Donald Trump's coronavirus response — more than once — according to PJ Media.

Evidence China Was Colluding with the Bidens and Providing Information on How to Defeat President Trump in the 2020 Election.  Hunter Biden dropped off his laptop at a PC repairman more than a year ago for repairs.  Hunter's laptop eventually became the property of the PC repairman due to Hunter's inability to return and pick up his computer.  Per the agreement signed by Hunter and the repairman, if Hunter didn't pick up his laptop, the laptop became the property of the PC repairman.  Hunter never picked up his laptop.  Over the past few months, experts have been analyzing Hunter's laptop.  Based on these reviews, we have reported various disgusting details of Hunter's life and the Biden family by analyzing this data.  Hunter kept a diary on the laptop.  He also backed up his text messages and kept pictures and videos of himself and prostitutes and family members doing drugs and having sex.  Yaacov Apelbaum at the Illustrated Primer today provides some more shocking findings hidden on Hunter's laptop.

Trump Oppo Research Courtesy of the CCP.  Hidden between tens of thousands of emails, IMs, documents, videos, sound recordings, and encrypted files is a collection of communications between Hunter Biden and one JiaQi.  JiaQi, AKA JaiQi Bao, AKA Jiaqi Wang, AKA Jiaqi Wang Bao, AKA Wang Bao Jiaqi, AKA Qinping Bao, AKA TianTian Bo, was Ye Jianming's US based assistant/advisor.  If you don't recall the cast of characters in this Chinese finger puzzle, Ye Jianming, was the chairman of the China Huaxin energy conglomerate and Hunter's and Jim Biden's business partner.  Ye Jianming and his US based staff worked closely with Chinese intelligence which controlled large parts of the strategy, funding, and overseas operations of CEFC and another of the Biden's Chinese joint ventures named Bohai Harvest RST (BHR).

Anyone Notice That Biden Tried To Bribe Georgia Voters With $2,000 Checks.  At a speech in Georgia on the eve of two runoff elections that will determine the control of the Senate, Joe Biden tried to woo voters to his side by promising them $2,000 in cash if they voted for the Democratic contenders.  What he didn't tell Georgians is that if they elect those two Democrats — Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock — Biden will take all that money away, and more, to pay for his radical leftist agenda.  "If you send Jon and the reverend to Washington, those $2,000 checks will go out the door, restoring hope and decency and honor for so many people who are struggling right now," Biden said during his speech.  "If you send Sens. Perdue and Loeffler back to Washington, those checks will never get there.  It's just that simple."  Has vote-buying ever been more flagrant?

Biden Threatens to Unleash the Tribe of the Mask.  Joe Biden insists that mask-wearing saves lives.  "I will be asking the American people to wear a mask for the first 100 days of my administration," he said shortly before the New Year.  "Not as a political statement, but as a patriotic duty."  Biden made mask-wearing a pillar of his presidential campaign; he knows that in the current context it is fundamentally about politics.  So why risk further dividing the electorate, many of whom believe his victory is owing to massive election fraud, by asking them to signal they've forgotten their disenfranchisement and jumped to his side by conforming to his political messaging?  Didn't his advisors realize that he might be setting himself up for early public failure when much of the country ignores his call?  Sure they did and that's the point:  Biden was issuing a threat.

The Editor says...
Joe Biden says, "I will be asking the American people to wear a mask for the first 100 days of my administration."  What's wrong with that?  [#1] He's not asking.  If you're not a Democrat, it won't be voluntary.  [#2] There is nothing magical about "the first 100 days" of a presidential term.  That's a news media cliché.  At the end of 100 days, the mask requirement will be extended on the basis of some excuse yet to be fabricated.

As a new year dawns, be very grateful you are not Joe Biden.  Let's take a moment and analyze how Joe's situation is actually a terrible one.  First, and most obviously, he will be dogged by allegations of electoral fraud.  Whether they are true or not, the perception of illegitimacy will begin to erode his authority from day one. [...] And if the fraud allegations are true, his position gets even worse.  Somebody out there in the swamp was able to coordinate a coherent election theft across multiple states and cities.  This person owns Joe and will not let him forget it.  Second, Joe's physical and mental health is in decline.  It's not unusual for presidents to age rapidly, but Joe is sick going in. [...] Third, he's surrounded by horrible people.  His wife and the Vice President will engage in some of the most vicious back room power struggles ever witnessed.  It will be no holds barred, with "Dr." Jill vehemently preventing him from resigning while Kamala circles and provokes. [...] Fifth, Joe himself is actually a pretty nasty man.  He's mean to critics, arrogant, and has a long history of behavioral improprieties that will continue to leak out.  The pressure will eventually make him erupt in public.  Even a compliant media won't be able to cover it up completely.

Gaslight with COVID: Joe Biden declares scaled down inauguration.  How's this for never letting a crisis go to waste?  Or taking one festering problem and using it to solve another?  Or just a great gaslight?  Joe Biden has called for a scaled down inauguration, supposedly in the name of containing COVID. [...] The real reason Biden is scaling down his event is that he knows that very few people would even show up.  It calls to mind the howling from the press over the size of President Trump's inaugural, claiming that it was small, while photos showed that actually, it was pretty big.  They used that argument to compare Trump unfavorably to President Obama, and now the shoe is on the other tootsie.  Obviously, Joe Biden knows he couldn't in a million years win in any such crowd contest, even if COVID were gone and the weather were 78 degrees.  When you are taking office by fraud, the crowds aren't there to be had.

Hunter Biden email associate on Justice Department transition team.  One of the Biden family's closest political and legal advisers whose name shows up in Hunter Biden's laptop computer is on President-elect Joseph R. Biden's Justice Department transition team.  Alexander S. Mackler, who served as a deputy counsel to Vice President Biden, was a prosecutor in the Delaware U.S. attorney's office in 2018 about the time the Justice Department opened an inquiry into whether Hunter Biden had cheated on his taxes.  Mr. Mackler told The Washington Times that he did not know about the case when he was a federal prosecutor.  "I learned about the investigation through Hunter Biden's press statement," he said.

Joe Biden's Inaugural Parade Canceled as Event [is] 'Reimagined'.  President-elect Joe Biden's inaugural celebration will be considerably smaller as organizers have canceled the parade that traditionally takes place after the ceremony.  In a U.S. Army email obtained by Jon Nicosia, participants were informed the event will no longer be happening.  "The Inaugural Parade has been canceled," it read.  "The Active, National Guard, Reserve, and Academy marching requirements have been deleted and are no longer needed."  The information from the Presidential Inauguration Committee (PIC) was called "definitive guidance," according to the email.

Resistance to Biden-Harris fundamental to being American.  Here's the reality: if Joe Biden gets sworn in, America is over.  To talk as if that were not the case is fantasy.  To project future GOP victories or Trump comebacks is fantasy.  To imagine that the country will continue on pretty much as before under Biden-Harris is fantasy.  The Deep State that controls them is pervasive, the corruption so thorough, the hatred for us so total, that no honest candidate will ever again hold major public office.  Masks and lock-ins at home and business shutdowns will be permanent fixtures of life, not temporary dislocations.  We will be prisoners in our own homes in our own country.  To refuse to acknowledge this is to blind yourself to what's clearly on the horizon.

Never give up.  We needn't carry on this disingenuous debate about whether Biden is a centrist, because his growing mental incapacity makes it a moot point.  As long as he is titular president, some invisible committee, one of whose central members is likely former President Barack Obama, will be orchestrating his every move.  But it will be shocking if Biden, once sworn in, remains in office very long.  In one of his unforced gaffes, he casually acknowledged having told "Barack" that, while he and Harris agree on most things, if a disagreement on moral principle arises, he will "develop some disease" and resign.  The Democratic power brokers pulling the strings in this Manchurian horror show achieved a double coup.  They managed to arrange Biden's out-of-nowhere victory over the popular — but unelectable in a general election — Bernie Sanders, and they snuck in the wildly unpopular Kamala Harris as vice presidential candidate under the Biden cover.  The liberal media conspired in this ruse, presenting Biden as an affable and honorable centrist, shielding his frailty and corruption while ignoring Harris' undeniable extremism.

Joe Biden Team Blocks Reporters from 'Chatting' During Virtual Press Conferences.  Joe Biden's transition team has disabled the chat function for virtual press conferences hosted on Zoom after several reporters publicly used the forum to urge the president-elect to take more questions from the press. [...] The move came after numerous outlets raised concerns that the Biden and his transition team were not treating all members of the press equitably.  Last month, Fox News reported that some members of the press had become "frustrated" with what they saw as the Biden team playing favorites when it came to doling out opportunities to ask questions at press events.

How to Steal an Election in Four Steps.  [Scroll down]  Three weeks before the election the New York Post broke a story about Joe Biden's son Hunter based on information from Hunter's laptop, which had been taken in for repairs.  The laptop contained videos of Hunter flirting with underage girls while smoking crack.  More damaging, former Biden family business partners Tony Bobulinski and Bevan Cooney, along with computer shop owner John Paul Mac Isaac, confirmed — with tens of thousands of primary-source documents — that Hunter Biden was receiving millions of dollars from foreign nations including US enemies for access to Joe Biden, who knew his son was trading on his name with China, Ukraine, & Kazakhstan.  The China energy company CEFC had paid $5 million to the Biden family.  Joe Biden denied knowledge of any of it despite a photograph showing him standing with their Chinese business partner Jonathan Li in a Chinese Hotel lobby.  Ten days after the photo was taken, Hunter Biden was awarded a $1 billion private equity deal financed by the Chinese govt.

Biden is Not 'President-Elect' Until Congress Counts Electoral Votes on January 6, 2021.  Let us say it all together, "Joe Biden is not the president-elect."  Americans have been bombarded with fake news about Biden's status in the 2020 presidential election.  Facebook, Twitter, CNN, MSNBC, ABC, PBS have all declared Biden the winner.  But this is far from over.  We have reported on massive election fraud from multiple sources.  The media refuses to do so, therefore we must tell the truth.  [Video clip]

Joe & Jill Biden Awkwardly Laugh As Their Confetti Popper Duds.  The ball finally dropped on a year of ruinous Democrat lockdowns with the scenes from New York's Times Square resembling something out of a post-apocalyptic science fiction movie.  Streets that are normally jam-packed with revelers partying to ring in the new year were abandoned as the nation's largest city was a virtual ghost town on the last night of a dismal 2020.  Further contributing to the dystopian appearance of the Democrats' brave new world was the trotting out of the Bidens on national television in a propaganda exercise that one would expect in North Korea or some other totalitarian country but not in America.  That millions of Americans aren't buying the results of the most fraudulent election in U.S. history is a problem for the corrupt establishment and has necessitated the need to foist lunchbucket Joe and doctorate Jill off on the public as the legitimate rulers in waiting.

CBP Chief:  Joe Biden Will Spur 'Waves' of 'Uncontrolled Mass Migration' to U.S..  President-elect Joe Biden's plan to end a series of United States cooperative asylum agreements with Central America will spur "waves" of illegal immigration to the southern border, Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Chief Mark Morgan says.  As Breitbart News reported, Joe Biden is planning to tear down President Donald Trump's legal wall that he has built through U.S. agreements with Mexico, Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador that have helped stem illegal immigration at the southern border and allow federal immigration officials to quickly return border crossers to their native countries.

Biden backpedals on opening border on day one, but the damage is done.  President-elect Joe Biden may have realized he does not want a southwest border crisis in his administration, but the damage he created with his campaign promises is already done.  After irresponsibly making campaign statements that "we owe" illegal aliens amnesty and promising to end the Trump administration's "Remain in Mexico" program on day one, Biden has balked, stating he would make such changes at a slower pace than originally promised.  It's too late.  The alien smugglers have already cashed their checks.  Without even waiting for our election or heeding pandemic restrictions or the rapid increase in virus cases in the United States and Mexico, large migrant flows to our border restarted.

Joe Biden Has No Mandate.  If Joe Biden is sworn in as president of the United States in January, many Democrats and their friends in the liberal media will instantly claim that he has a mandate.  They will be mistaken.  Joe Biden does not have a mandate to effect change, and no amount of complaining from the professional left will change this fact.  The same people who will champion Biden's non-existent mandate have fought President Trump for four years.  They cast doubt on his 2016 victory, they investigated him and members of his team, they claimed he was mentally unfit for office, they called him an asset of Russia, and actively sought to ruin almost anyone who defended him.  These same people who cast doubt on the outcome of the 2016 election for four years now have the audacity to demand fealty.  The same election interference they swore stole the 2016 election for Trump is now branded a conspiracy theory if you dare question Biden's victory.

Ukrainian MP Confirms, The Bidens And Their Partners Received 16.5 Million From Burisma Through Laundering.  The Ukrainian Office of the Prosecutor General has drawn up an indictment against the owner of the Burisma Holdings energy company, ex-Ecology Minister Nikolai Zlochevsky, that contains information that the son of former US Vice President Joe Biden, Hunter, as a Burisma board member along with his partners received $16.5 million for their services, Ukrainian Verkhovna Rada MP from the ruling Servant of the People party Alexander Dubinsky told a press conference on Wednesday, citing the investigation's materials.  According to him, the money came from duplicitous criminal activity.  [Video clip]

Burisma Indictment Reveals Ex President Allegedly Obtained $7.4 Bil.  Through Fund "Close to Democratic Party".  According to a new bombshell report, an indictment of the Ukrainian gas company Burisma claims that former President Yanukovich acquired $7.4 billion and laundered the money through a fund close with the Democratic party.  Burisma was the company that former Vice President Joe Biden's son Hunter Biden worked with. [...] Over the weekend, an old video with Ukrainian politician Andrii Derkach went viral, detailing how the Biden family got rich.  [Video clip]

Joe Biden admits who he believes really won the 2020 election.  One of the things elderly people are famous for is losing their filter, that little auto-edit in the brain that stops them from saying inappropriate things.  Many lose their filter because they just don't care (and good for them).  Others, though, lose it because nature has cruelly attacked their brain function.  The problem is exceptionally bad when the person wasn't too bright or too filtered to begin with.  And that brings us to Joe Biden, who just announced that Kamala Harris is the real President-elect. [...] Deep down he's always known, which is why his mouth keeps slipping past his brain's filter to tell the world who's really taking over the White House should Biden manage to get in:  Kamala Harris.  In September, Biden referred to a "Harris Biden administration":  [Video clip]  In early December, Biden explained that, if Harris disagreed with him, he'd fake an illness and hand her the White House:  [Video clip]  And then, yesterday, Biden did it again.

And now, a word from the Abortion Party candidate:
Joe Biden: 'We're on This Earth to Care for One Another'.  Joe and Jill Biden recorded a videotaped message to wish people "Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays," in which the explained why they stayed away from their family this Christmas.  "Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays.  Jill and I wish you and your family peace, joy, health and happiness this season," Biden said in the message.

If you care so much about others, why did you steal the 2020 election through massive voter fraud?

Trump's gambit.  I have some very liberal friends who are absolutely giddy about Joe Biden's potential presidency. [...] Actually, I am profoundly sad for Joe.  At his advanced age and obviously suffering declining cognitive skills, Joe should be sitting on a beach in Hawaii, under an umbrella, drinking a piña colada and enjoying the final chapter of his life.  Instead, the Democrats and the media dragged Joe across the finish line and think that he will occupy the Oval Office in January.  I think their endgame is flawed because Trump's king is still on the board, and the game isn't over.  Across America, seventy-four million God-fearing, gun-loving, Bible-reading deplorables are praying for a miracle.  At this point, a Deus ex machina (an unexpected power or event saving a seemingly hopeless situation) is what is desperately needed to save our Republic.

Man Who Repaired Hunter Biden's Laptop Sues Twitter for Defamation.  Computer repairman John Paul Mac Isaac provided the explosive information in The New York Post's expose on Hunter Biden after he gave Hunter's hard drive to Rudy Giuliani.  Twitter stopped users from sharing the Post's articles because it came from hacked material.  Now Mac Isaac has sued Twitter for defamation and wants $500 million in damages along with a public retraction.  In the lawsuit, Mac Isaac noted he talked to the FBI and Mr. Robert Costello, an attorney for Giuliani, between July 2019 and October 2020.  The Post received the hard drive from Hunter's computer from Giuliani, not Mac Isaac.  Therefore, Mac Isaac did not know the Post had the hard drive.  He did not want the Post to print his name or give anyone permission to report his name.

Ukraine press conference explicitly ties Hunter and Joe Biden to corruption.  A video from a press conference in Ukraine is going viral.  It is the follow-up to a video press conference that Ukraine released over a year ago, in which Members of the Ukraine Parliament demanded that President Zelensky and President Trump investigate billions of dollars of corruption in Ukraine that is tied to the U.S. The newly released video is meant to provide documentary and eyewitness information about the corruption — and the Biden family figures prominently in the story.  The video is long — over an hour — and not all of it involves the Biden family.  This post quotes those portions of the press conference that address Biden family corruption.  The gist of it is that, while Democrats obsess about Trump's purported criminality, despite the absence of any evidence, their chosen standard-bearer is extraordinarily corrupt.  Indeed, I would argue that Biden is one of the most corrupt politicians ever in America.

Now What?  This coming year will be when the reality of a dementia patient in the White House becomes more than just a joke.  Biden is only lucid for a few hours a day, which has been fine as his handlers ran his campaign and now his transition.  How is that going to work when he must perform the duties of the office?  No one seems to have thought about that, and in fairness, the plan very well may be to push him aside in the spring.  A few months ago, Pelosi was babbling about a process to remove the president and everyone assumed she meant Trump.  At the time, they were sure they were going to win the election, so most likely she meant Biden.  Next year may bring the first example of democratic regicide.

Biden Flees Podium without Answering Questions After Delivering Remarks in Delaware.  78-year-old Joe Biden on Monday delivered remarks from Wilmington, Delaware.  Livestream of Biden's remarks had only 4,500 viewers but we're expected to believe he got more than 81 million votes in the 2020 election.  Biden bashed President Trump as he read from the teleprompter.  "We're going to have to regain the trust and confidence of a world that has begun to find ways to work around us or work without us," Biden said.  "We have to be able to innovate, to reimagine our defenses against growing threats in new realms."

Man who repaired Hunter Biden's laptop sues Twitter for saying that contents that he released were 'hacked'.  John Paul Mac Isaac, the Wilmington, Delaware owner of a now-closed computer repair shop, is suing Twitter for half a billion dollars for implying that he is a "hacker." [...] My sympathies are entirely with Mr. Mac Isaac, and I hope a jury can be found in South Florida that will give him a fair hearing.  But I do worry that establishing a link between Twitter's use of the term hacking and the negative consequences he suffered will be difficult.

Computer repairman who made Hunter Biden hard-drive contents public sues Twitter for $500 million after moderators 'labeled him a hacker'.  A computer repair shop owner who Hunter Biden handed his laptops over to in April 2019 is suing Twitter for defamation, claiming moderators labeled him a hacker.  John Paul Mac Isaac is seeking $500 million in damages from Twitter after The New York Post's story about Biden, obtained from the 50-year-old's laptop, was labeled as potentially coming from hacked material.  Facebook and Twitter both restricted viewing of the Post's story, and Twitter pointed to its ban on posting 'hacked materials' as an explanation.

Lobbyist brother of top Biden aide reportedly lands big contracts.  The lobbyist brother of a top adviser to President-elect Joe Biden has been raking in the clients ever since Biden's win was declared, according to reports — sparking conflict-of-interest concerns in the new White House inner circle.  Jeff Ricchetti, the brother of longtime Biden aide Steve Ricchetti, picked up a lobbying contract with Amazon Web Services in November, less than a week after Biden was declared the winner of the presidential election, CNBC reported Saturday [12/26/2020].  Two days later, Jeff Ricchetti registered as a lobbyist for Evofem Biosciences, pushing for contraceptive coverage in federal health-care plans.

At this point, Joe Biden has been "declared the winner" only by the news media, not by the Congress.

Trump: The American David.  A recent poll by McLaughlin & Associates now shows that 4.6% of the Joe Biden's supporters would have voted differently had they known about Biden family corruption.  The media ignored and censored two separate Senate committee reports in September, documenting the details of large payments from numerous foreign government-related entities to Hunter Biden and holding companies under his control, with most fund transfers coming from relationships that originated while Pops Joe served as vice president in the Obama administration.  What this says about the power brokers behind Biden who knew everything about him is that they prefer a weak and compromised leader, who is easier to control and influence so as to assure that their interests and goals are carried out.  They own Joe Biden.  No wonder we are where we are.

Mollie Hemingway:  By Trump Standards, Biden Should Already Be Investigated For Obstruction Of Justice.  Federalist Senior Editor Mollie Hemingway highlighted another set of elitist double standards about the Biden scandals Wednesday on Fox News, arguing if President-elect Joe Biden were President Donald Trump, a special counsel probe would already be underway.  "If we applied the same standards to Joe Biden that we applied to Donald Trump, Joe Biden himself would already have a special counsel on him for obstruction of justice," Hemingway said.  "Joe Biden is making false claims about the nature of the investigation into his son.  He said that it was foul play, that the investigation was foul play.  These were the standards that were used to put a special counsel that was very damaging against the Trump administration that went on for several years."

Biden's Team Complains:  We Want Trump's White House Twitter Account Followers.  The Biden-Harris transition team is complaining because Twitter decided the followers of White House Twitter accounts, the number of which exploded from 26 million followers at the end of the Obama administration to roughly 60 million by the end of the Trump administration, will not be turned over to the Biden team.  On Tuesday, Biden's digital director tweeted, "In 2016, the Trump admin absorbed all of President Obama's Twitter followers on @POTUS and on @WhiteHouse — at Team 44's urging.  In 2020, Twitter has informed us that as of right now the Biden administration will have to start from zero."

Biden Throwing a Conniption That Twitter Wouldn't Transfer Trump's Followers to Him.  Joe Biden, who had difficulty having anyone come to any of his events, whose "rallies" may have had those poor little social distancing circles, just not a lot of supporters, is now really upset that Twitter wouldn't just turn over to him the presidential Twitter account with President Donald Trump's massive number of followers.  Twitter has decided that while they are turning over the @POTUS and @WhiteHouse accounts to Biden, the account followers will be wiped to zero, that followers will be notified of the change of account and given the choice if they want to continue to follow.

Why an Editor's Open Letter to Journalists Got Totally Wrecked in a Single Twitter Thread.  [Scroll down]  Journalists were rightfully mocked for the last four years for being outright terrible at their jobs.  The bias was always there.  During the Trump administration, it reached absurd new heights.  There wasn't even a half-[hearted] attempt at hiding it.  Journalists should get a pat on the back for doing their job.  What job?  Burying the shoddy and reportedly corrupt dealings of the Biden family, how Hunter Biden got rich off his daddy's name because he's a perpetual screw-up, how he didn't report $400,000 from an unethical arrangement in Ukraine, and how he's under investigation for tax fraud.  Oh, and Joe is involved too.  Some of these deals, like the one in China, were being hashed out when Joe was still VP under Obama.  It's enough of a story that 17 percent of Biden voters said they wouldn't have voted for Corrupt Joe in the 2020 election if they had known about this pile of dirty laundry.

Here Is How Hunter Biden Allegedly Traded On Family Name, Influence To Make Millions.  Just days after outgoing AG William Barr said there is "no need" to appoint a special counsel to investigate Hunter Biden despite revelations about a federal criminal investigation into Biden's business conduct, we're seeing the latest "scoop" about the younger Biden's alleged misdeeds.  In a lengthy investigative report, the WSJ has reportedly confirmed that the younger Biden traded on his purported influence and family ties during his business dealings in Ukraine and China (along with his conduct at home in his personal life, where he has seemingly careened from one disaster to the next) to enrich himself — and, importantly, his family as well.  Importantly, in the story, WSJ explicitly notes that "none of the Journal's reporting found that Joe Biden was involved in his son's activities, which mostly took place around the time Obama's second term was wrapping up."  Our initial reaction:  Of course it wouldn't.

Joe Biden:  "Public Colleges and Universities Are Going to be Tuition-Free For Families Earning Less Than $125,000".  78-year-old Joe Biden on Wednesday [12/23/2020] announced his 'nominee' for Secretary of Education.  As usual, virtually no one watched Joe Biden's press conference on Wednesday but we're supposed to believe he got 81 million votes.

How Should a Christian Support Trump?  [Scroll down]  If you're unbothered by the prospect of a man with whom the Chinese communists and Iranian mullahs both are happy, you deserve a Biden presidency.  If you sympathize with the absurd notion that Basement Joe, who has sniffed more females' hair than a San Francisco hairdresser, is the more decent option, be aware that he's already promised both the homosexual lobby and Planned Parenthood that each is going to be his Number 1 priority.  Perhaps you're unaware the abortion crowd fully intends to legalize killing babies up to and even after the moment of birth and force taxpayers to pay for it, and that homosexual "rights" advocates are joined by the God-hating "secular" lobby in openly calling on Biden to persecute people of faith.  Elections have consequences, as did Trump's and Obama's, big time.  If you are bothered in the least by the idea that a national election may have been rigged, what makes you think that if they get away with it on this scale right in your face that they will ever allow fair and free elections again?

Biden says he Still believes his son's laptop revelations were Russian disinformation then calls Fox News reporter who asked question 'a one horse pony'.  President-elect Joe Biden said he still believed that the stories about son Hunter Biden's laptop were a Russian disinformation scheme, as he mocked the Fox News Channel reporter who asked about it.  Fox's Peter Doocy yelled up to Biden after he took questions from more favorable outlets onstage at Wilmington's Queen theater Tuesday: 'Do you still think that the stories from the fall about your son is Russian disinformation and a smear campaign, like you said?'  'Yes, yes, yes,' Biden answered on his way out.  'God love ya man, you're a one horse pony,' he told Doocy.

Maybe Jill thinks she's a doctor.
Joe Biden Gets Covid-19 Vaccine — Then Awkwardly Mumbles, 'Jill Loves Shots I've Had So Many'.  78-year-old Joe Biden on Monday received his first does of the Covid-19 vaccine by a nurse practitioner at ChristianaCare hospital in Delaware.  Biden thanked the scientists and frontline workers and begrudgingly gave the Trump Administration "some credit" for Operation Warp Speed.  "I'm doing this to demonstrate that people should be prepared when it's available to take the vaccine.  There's nothing to worry about," Biden said after previously trashing Trump and casting doubt on the safety of a vaccine.  Then things got awkward.  Biden looked over at his  handler  wife Jill and said she "loves shots" — "I know.  I've had so many."

The Smartest Guy Joe Knows Is Pretty Dumb.  Throughout the scandals of the last few years, former Vice President Joe Biden has repeatedly heaped praise on his troubled son Hunter.  In several interviews, including one this week, he has referred to Hunter as the "smartest guy" he knows.  To make such a statement, it is clear that Joe Biden needs a much larger circle of acquaintances.  Is Joe Biden even qualified to identify a smart person?  In fact, how smart is Joe Biden?  The record shows he is the antithesis of smart.  From his many asinine comments to his long record of questionable associations to his multiple episodes of outright plagiarism, Joe Biden is certainly not smart.  Since Joe Biden is not Mensa material, how about his son Hunter?  C'mon man, this is about as easy as it gets.  Hunter has a sordid personal life and has created a mess of professional life.

Catholic bishops cower as Biden assembles pro-abortion administration.  For decades, Christians have supported candidates who have assured us they believe what we believe.  But a Joe Biden administration, for Christians and Catholics in particular, is more than dangerous to our faith — it will be outright hostile.  Even before the Electoral College certified the votes of each state, Joe Biden started putting his Cabinet together.  He already demonstrated his willingness to blatantly go against the core tenet of Catholicism that holds abortion to be a grave evil when he chose Kamala Harris as his running mate.  Harris's record on supporting abortion is unprecedented, which was already revealed during the campaign.  That's only the beginning.

Bunches Of Planes Dragging Anti-Biden Sky Messages Across Florida.  [Here is an example.]

Biden spokeswoman says AG candidates won't be asked about Hunter Biden.  President-elect Joe Biden will not discuss with attorney general candidates a federal investigation into his son Hunter Biden, incoming White House press secretary Jen Psaki said Sunday [12/20/2020].  "He will not be discussing an investigation of his son with any attorney general candidates. ... he will not be discussing it with anyone he is considering for the role and he will not be discussing it with a future attorney general," Psaki told host Chris Wallace on "Fox News Sunday."  Wallace asked Psaki about the US attorney for Delaware's investigation into Hunter Biden's tax affairs and whether the former vice president would allow it to run its course.

Hunter Biden and China:  A timeline of his business ties to the Far East.  For at least seven years, many when his father was vice president, Hunter Biden pursued a lucrative deal to run an investment firm founded by millions of dollars from a Chinese partnership.  Joe Biden claims he never spoke with Hunter about his dealings, and never profited from any group his family set up, but e-mails and text messages found on Hunter Biden's old laptop hard drive — first published by The Post — show "the big guy" being referenced repeatedly.  A federal investigation into Hunter is ongoing, and Republicans vow to continue to probe how Hunter profited off his father's name, and what President-elect Biden knew about it.  "I'm not going to turn a blind eye on this," Senate Homeland Security Committee Chairman Ron Johnson (R-Wisc.) said last week.  "We'll keep digging."

Hunter Biden associate texts hint at push to 'get Joe involved,' make it look like 'truly family business'.  Hunter Biden's former business associates were hinting at a push to "get Joe involved" in a joint venture with Chinese Energy Company CEFC and make the venture appear as a "truly family business" to the Chinese, according to text messages obtained and reviewed by Fox News.  In text messages dating back to 2017, Hunter's now-ex-associates James Gilliar and Tony Bobulinski discussed a breakdown of the joint venture with CEFC, the "stakes" and appeared to hint at discussions about getting the now-president-elect involved.

Joe Biden's niece Caroline gets no jail time after DUI guilty plea.  Another Biden walks free.  Joe Biden's niece Caroline Biden pleaded guilty to DUI on Dec. 3 — and was sentenced to 20 days to six months of "confinement," Pennsylvania court records said.  But the small print shows Biden, 33, won't see a day behind bars after she negotiated a plea deal with the Montgomery County district attorney.  Instead of jail, she got five-plus months of probation, with 20 days of rehab in January counted toward her sentence.  The walk-free plea continues a long Biden family tradition of avoiding jail time.  A [New York] Post investigation in July found at least eight other busts of Bidens resulted in wrist slaps.

COVID Panic To Rule Biden's First 100 Days.  Team Biden will wring every last infected droplet out of the COVID-19 panic for at least the first 100 days of a Biden Administration.  Democrats and the Biden campaign shamelessly exploited the health crisis to damage President Trump, push for an unprecedented volume of absentee ballots that overwhelmingly favored the Democratic presidential nominee, and leveraged "social distancing" dogma to keep Republican poll watchers far away from mischievous Democratic canvassers in several key cities.  Why give up the political gift that keeps on giving?  The incoming president only has hosted a smattering of public appearances while successfully avoiding tough questions about investigations into his son.  A frail Biden coughed repeatedly during another "acceptance" speech Monday night and had to be guided out by his wife; the media dutifully reported later that Biden has a minor cold.  The coronavirus cover-up of Biden's obvious lack of focus, energy, stamina, and patience — he snaps at any reporter who dares to even mildly confront the next leader of the free world with legitimate questions — will continue into the foreseeable future.

'Dr. Jill Biden' Sure Flies with the U.S.-Hating, Stalinist Castro Regime.  "'Dr. Jill Biden' sounds and feels fraudulent, not to say a touch comic. [...] When she honored this Stalinist, terror-sponsoring [Castro] regime with a promotional visit as second lady, the KGB-trained Russia-colluders all gleefully referred to her as "Dr."  And why not?  She gleefully starred in and helped produce a tourism commercial to boost the America-hating, terror-sponsoring regime's income.  To wit:  "Dr. Jill Biden in Cuba to study Cuba's achievements in health and education," read a headline in Stalinist Cuba's media, Oct. 6, 2016.  More interestingly, during Jill Biden's co-production with communist apparatchiks of her Potemkin tourism commercial to boost the income of Castro's military and secret police who majority own Cuba's tourism industry — her frequent escort was a Cuban lady named Josefina Vidal.  The KGB-trained Vidal was expelled from the U.S. in Oct. 2003 for her suspected operational links to Cuban spy Ana Belen Montes, responsible for the deepest and most damaging penetration of the U.S. Department of Defense in recent history.

Jill Biden and Her Less Than Stellar Dissertation.  Jill Biden is what some in military circles might call a "ring knocker." My son-in-law told me what that term meant when he was a senior at the Naval Academy.  In short, it refers to service academy seniors who bang their huge class rings on desks, mainly to intimidate underclassmen, especially plebes. [...] Now doesn't that sound like someone who's been in the news lately?  Perhaps a designated First-Lady-To-Be, hmm?  Like Jill Biden, who refers to herself as "Dr. Jill Biden," and insists that all Americans do so as well?  Because we're not worthy of such a brilliant FLOTUS!  But as we've learned recently, Mrs. Biden (yes, I said it!) holds a doctorate in education.  An Ed.D, not an MD.  She is not a medical doctor, even though she fooled the geniuses on "The View."  One of the cackling hens, Whoopi Goldberg, in fact, called her a "hell of a doctor" and thought she would make a great surgeon general.  However, the truth finally came out, leading one former instructor at Northwestern University in Chicago to advise Jill Biden to stop the puffery.

Sticking with Trump to the Bitter (or Glorious) End.  A nation presided over by a sorry puppet who has been put in place by a political, technological and wealthy elite employing counterfeit means will become progressively dysfunctional.  Secondly, an administration that owes its ascendancy to obvious electoral chicanery will look and sound like a banana republic, a wavering shadow of its former self, and an international laughing stock to be taken advantage of by its adversaries and competitors.  Finally, the idea of secession will enter the public domain.  Rush Limbaugh worries that America is "trending toward secession."  Texas GOP chairman Allen West suggested that law-abiding states should "bond together and form a union of states that will abide by the Constitution."  Though he asserted "I never say anything about secession," the implication is certainly present.  Texit is in the wind.  As Rep. Kyle Biedermann (R-Fredericksburg) said, "I am committing to file legislation this session that will allow a referendum to give Texans a vote for the State of Texas to reassert its status as an independent nation."

Jill Biden:  I Worked Really Hard on My Misspelled, Mathematically-Incorrect, Dissertation.  In the victimhood olympics, some players start off more privileged than others, by being born a minority, or choosing to become a sexual minority.  While others have nothing going for them except being the mediocre trophy wife of a creepy old man.  So they've gotta play the hand that they were dealt.  Just ask Dr. Jill, who is still whining about not being called Dr for her degree in education which she uses to teach community college students. [...] More to the point, critics have correctly pointed out that Dr. Jill's dissertation strings along a bunch of cliches.  It's a typical enough student paper in a lot of settings, but it's not a dissertation.  And its author insisting that she worked hard on it is sad if true, and makes her insistence on being called "Dr" even more pathetic.

Jill Biden's Garbage Dissertation, Explained.  To call Jill Biden's dissertation thin gruel is an insult to gruel.  Whatever meager substance puddled in Bob Cratchit's miserable bowl at mealtime was a bountiful feast compared with this paper.  I wrote yesterday about the problems with this capstone project, the foundation of her Ed.D. degree and of the insistence of so many in recent days that we must call her "Dr."  Mrs. Biden's only original research consists of interviews with two — that's right, two — ex-students and a few colleagues at Delaware Technical Community College, where she used to teach, plus the results of a vacuous questionnaire she wrote that was returned by about 150 people who worked or studied there.  Oh, and she also called two nearby community colleges seeking interviews about their retention rates.  One of them wouldn't answer the question; the other wouldn't assign anyone to speak to her at all.  Telling us about this misadventure serves no academic purpose, though it does fill up four pages of her generously spaced paper.

Jill Biden Whines During Interview After People Make Fun Of Her "Doctorate" Degree.  During an interview with "comedian" Stephen Colbert, former Second Lady Jill Biden spoke out about everyone making fun of her for her "doctorate" degree.  "You once said in your own memoir, 'The role I always felt most at home in is Dr. Biden,'" Colbert started.  "Now some people have recently taken upon themselves to question that title of yours.  Do you have any reaction to those people?"  The Daily Wire reports:  "Colbert was apparently referencing a Saturday op-ed by Joseph Epstein in The Wall Street Journal titled "Is There a Doctor in the White House?  Not if You Need an M.D." Epstein, a former lecturer at Northwestern University who served as editor of The American Scholar from 1975 to 1997, argued that Jill Biden, who obtained a doctorate in education from the University of Delaware in 2007, should drop the title."

The Editor says...
As long as Doctor Jill Biden insists on being called Doctor, the derisive mockery will continue.  This is apparently an effort by the dishonest news media to make us believe Mrs. Biden a medical doctor.  They do this because they think you're stupid.  If you teach college-level classes, you can reasonably insist that your students call you "Doctor."  Everywhere else, it is a sign of insecurity.  If you have credentials, everybody knows.

Oblivious Biden.  What kind of man must Joe Biden be to accept being illegitimately put into the Oval Office?  We've all seen the clips.  Nearly every recent Joe Biden public appearance has been an embarrassment.  The media called his garbled statements 'gaffes,' as if they were innocent, harmless mistakes, but many have suggested far worse age-related cognitive failures.  We experienced embarrassment with him, and pitied a man clearly past his prime.  What seemed most prominent about Joe Biden, other than his mental decline, was his obsession with one singular goal — to be president of the United States. [...] While the election is still contested, and more evidence of widespread Democrat fraud surfaces daily, Biden speaks and behaves as if he were the clear and universally accepted victor.  Looking back, one may ask, 'Why didn't Biden run in 2016 as the heir-apparent after eight years as vice president?'  He claims it was due to the death of his son, but here's the far more likely answer:  Because Obama lacked confidence in him.

Both the Left and Right Have a Biden Problem.  Joe Biden will never be my president, period.  This election was stolen for him even if he is the only one who does not know it.  He is a despicable man who has been one of the most divisive politicians of the last half century. [...] Americans know this election was stolen.  And just in case we did not realize how little respect they have for us, Democrats boasted continuously of their millenarian machinations as they absconded with the election for all to see. [...] The left is now faced with Joe Biden, President Select, an addlepated buffoon standing on home plate in an adult diaper absolutely convinced Americans believe he hit a home run.

Joe Biden Is Not President Elect.  You won't hear it said anywhere else, but until the joint session of Congress and the Senate meet on January 6, Joe Biden is not the president elect.  [Video clip]

Fighting Biden.  Joe Biden is a lie wrapped in a sham hiding inside a moron — he is an epigone of a president at best.  Yet, once he takes that oath, we should do everything in our power to make certain he serves out his term while opposing him every day and, in every way, including continuous mostly peaceful protest.  Why should "mostly peaceful" be the sole dominion of Antifa?  You see, Kamala Harris is much more complicated than Joe but also much more dangerous.  She is a political creation who believes at any given moment whatever is the passion of that moment.  She was once the "law and order" district attorney of San Francisco jailing young black men for smoking pot.  Now she is a radical leftist, critical theory adherent, and hopeful dictator.

Joe Biden Will Serve at the Pleasure of Obama.  I really think Obama's running the show.  Obama's been running the Democrat show since 2016.  He ran the operation against Trump.  He ran the Russia sting.  He ran the Russian coup.  He ran everything, and he's now running this.  And as long as Biden accomplishes or does what Obama wants, then he'll be fine.  But I do believe that it will be up to Obama, Biden's fate.  We'll see.

Newly Released Texts Show Hunter Biden Associate Asked to 'Get Joe Involved' in China Deal to Make it Look Like 'Truly Family Business'.  Newly released text messages obtained by Fox News show Hunter Biden's ex-associate James Gilliar asking to 'get Joe [Biden] involved' in a China deal to make it look like 'truly a family business.'  Joe Biden is a national security threat. [...] A May 2017 text message previously released revealed Tony Bobulinski was warned by his business partner James Gilliar not to mention Joe Biden was involved.  Tony Bobulinski was brought into Sinohawk Holdings to be CEO by James Gilliar and Hunter Biden — James Gilliar made sure to warn Bobulinski never to mention Joe Biden being involved because they were paranoid.  "Don't mention Joe being involved, it's only when u are face to face, I know u know that but they are paranoid."  Joe Biden continues to claim his son Hunter did nothing wrong while at the same time asserting he had no idea what Hunter was up to with his overseas business deals.

Joe Biden's looming disaster.  [Joe Biden's] two central problems are that he has set the wrong expectations and that his policies will not work in the current domestic and international political, economic and military environment.  The only message in his "I'm-not-Trump" political campaign was that President Trump made a mess of domestic and foreign policy and that Biden would fix all of that.  The deadly trap is that Trump did very well on many key measures and Biden inevitably will do much worse, creating a failed Biden presidency.  His Day One issue of COVID-19 already is a loser.  Researchers developed vaccines in record time, under Trump's direction, and are rolling them out.  The complex issue of distribution now goes to Biden.

What Joe Biden is hiding.  We all know he is hiding something.  [Web site]

Might we have a Republican president — in 2023?  Yes, and that's 2023, not 2024.  Here's how.  It all starts with Joe Biden's truculently delinquent and pathological son, Hunter.  You know, the guy who was and apparently still is a cocaine addict and was drummed out of the Navy.  The deadbeat father who denied paternity and avoided support obligations to the mother whom he met at a strip joint.  But those are the least of his troubles.  Hunter's "business" is to monetize his dad's political position.  He did so in the Ukraine where Hunter was paid millions by an oil and gas company, though he probably doesn't even pump his own gas.  The payors of these millions thanked him for introductions to dad.  The Bidens admit that the son's payments from the Ukraine were because he was Joe's son — they couldn't possibly deny that — but contend that the payments did not affect U.S. policy toward the Ukraine.  In other words, they say they accepted the payola but it's OK because they cheated the Ukrainians out of getting anything for it.

Biden Should Beware of Nemesis.  Once the last of the other Democratic primary candidates dropped out and Biden was nominated, all prior negative media stories about his apparent cognitive decline and his family's financial entanglements disappeared.  From April 2020 on, a virtual news blackout surrounded Biden.  His rare interviews were scripted.  Biden communiques were teleprompted.  Press conferences were either nonexistent or revolved around his favorite milkshake or his socks.  Mentions of Hunter Biden's business dealings in China and Ukraine were taboo.  It was sinful to reference reports of a Hunter Biden email allegedly detailing a 10 percent distribution of such revenue to the "Big Guy" — presumably Joe Biden.  Unlike Donald Trump, Joe Biden never really campaigned.  After the primaries, he outsourced his fall 2020 campaign to subordinates and pet journalists to attack Trump.

Hunter Biden Was Due 'Significant' Pay From China Firm Starting In 2019; Requested $10 Million In 2017: Reports.  Multiple new emails allegedly from Hunter Biden, son of Joe Biden, reveal financial ties to firms inside of communist China.  The alleged emails have surfaced after it was revealed last week that Hunter Biden is under federal criminal investigation over his business dealings, particularly in China.  Hunter Biden was informed in 2018 by one of his business partners that he would start to receive "significant" payments the following year from a firm in China that was co-owned by the Bank of China, which is owned by the communist Chinese government.

'Dr.' Jill Biden?  Critics of Op-Ed Often Omitted the Title.  Last week an opinion piece in the Wall Street Journal by Joseph Epstein provoked a heated debate over the use of the honorific "Dr." by future first lady Jill Biden when the writer suggested that only medical doctors should use the courtesy title, rather than anyone with a doctorate.  The op-ed drew considerable backlash, with widespread support expressed across news outlets and among the punditry for her use of the prefix.  Yet, a close examination of media coverage of Jill Biden over the course of this year suggests that for all their outrage, some of the very media outlets most critical of the op-ed have themselves consistently omitted her preferred title.  The debate over whether all doctorate holders should be referred to as "Dr." isn't new.  In 2018 some news outlets, including NPR, declined to use the prefix in referring to Brett Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford.  In the words of NPR's standards editor at the time, "the idea is that for most listeners a 'Dr.' practices medicine."

Scrutiny of her doctoral dissertation will make 'Dr. Jill Biden' wish she had stuck with 'Mrs. Biden'.  The real scandal around Joe Biden's second wife wanting to be called "Dr. Jill Biden" is not that people like Whoopi Goldberg incorrectly assume that she is a physician and recommend her for the position of surgeon general.  The real scandal is that the title is handed out to people who can't produce scholarly work, as exemplified by the pathetic "dissertation/executive position paper" that Jill Biden "submitted to the Faculty of the University of Delaware in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the degree of Doctor of Education with a major in Educational Leadership."  The problems with the 33,000-word document begin on the title page with the label "dissertation/executive position paper." Why the hedging with two labels?

Bombshell Email Shows Hunter Biden Requesting $10 Million From China, "Best Wishes" From "Entire Biden Family".  According to a new bombshell report dropped by Fox News, former Vice President Joe Biden's son Hunter Biden urged CEFC Chairman Ye Jianming to "quickly" send a $10 million wire transfer to "properly fund and operate" a business venture.  The email from Hunter Biden shows exactly how the Biden family leveraged their name considering Hunter Biden made sure to note that he was extending his "best wishes" from the "entire Biden family."

Biden says 'I'm confident' Hunter did nothing wrong, amid federal probe into 'tax affairs'.  President-elect Biden on Wednesday [12/16/2020] directly addressed questions about a federal investigation into his son, Hunter Biden, for the first time, saying "I'm confident" that he did nothing wrong.  Hunter Biden in a statement released last week by the transition organization for Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris acknowledged that the U.S. Attorney's Office in Delaware is "investigating my tax affairs."  He said that he takes "this matter very seriously but I am confident that a professional and objective review of these matters will demonstrate that I handled my affairs legally and appropriately, including with the benefit of professional tax advisors."

Hunter Biden investigations could touch on sprawling range of foreign dealings.  Concerns about Hunter Biden gained broader attention last week after multiple outlets reported that he is being investigated in connection to his taxes and overseas business with China and other countries in a federal inquiry that was opened as far back as 2018. President-elect Joe Biden's campaign, along with many in the media, had dismissed the Hunter Biden laptop story and other allegations as being part of a Russian disinformation operation, even though Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe said that "there is no intelligence that supports that ... Hunter Biden's laptop is part of some Russian disinformation campaign."  It was reported by CNN last week that "investigators appear to be focused on Hunter Biden's business activities connected to China" and "at least one of the matters investigators have examined is a 2017 gift of a 2.8 carat diamond" that Biden received from Chinese tycoon Ye Jianming in 2017.  Politico reported that "investigators in Delaware and Washington were ... probing potential money laundering and Hunter Biden's foreign ties."

Jill Biden's Doctorate Is Garbage Because Her Dissertation Is Garbage.  You can tell someone is smarting from an inferiority complex when he insists on being addressed as "Dr." on the basis of holding an academic doctorate rather than being a physician.  Ph.D. holders who have genuine accomplishments don't make you call them "Doctor," which is why you never hear about "Dr. Paul Krugman" and "Dr. George Will."  None of the professors I knew at Yale, even the ones who were eminent in their fields, insisted on the title, and I think most of them would have scoffed if someone had addressed them as "Dr." [...] Insisting on being called "Doctor" when you don't heal people is, among most holders of doctorates, seen as a gauche, silly, cringey ego trip.  Consider "Dr." Jill Biden, who doesn't even hold a Ph.D. but rather a lesser Ed.D., something of a joke in the academic world.  President-elect Joe Biden once explained that his wife sought the degree purely for status reasons:  "She said, 'I was so sick of the mail coming to Sen. and Mrs. Biden.  I wanted to get mail addressed to Dr. and Sen. Biden.'  That's the real reason she got her doctorate," Joe Biden has said.

Jill Biden Wants Us to Call Her 'Dr.' So Here's a Look at Her Ed.D 'Position Paper' to Receive That Doctorate.  Media, Democrats, and Jill Biden's team have all been insistent upon calling Jill Biden "Dr."  She received an Ed.D not a Ph.D and is not a medical doctor.  Now, it's common for people who have doctorates to use them in the academic setting, although usually they don't in the rest of their lives.  That's generally considered pretentious.  But I frankly didn't care whether she used the term or not until they went after an academic, Joseph Epstein, who mentioned the normal standard and how, while she has the doctorate, she really shouldn't use it in the rest of her life.  Now, whether you agree with him or not, that's his opinion and he's entitled to it and it's the general opinion of a lot of academia.  But they went after the Wall Street Journal for printing it and Epstein himself, trying to shut down that opinion, calling him "misogynist."  The point?  To teach the lesson that if you say anything critical or questioning, you will face a mob going after you or your job.

Joe Biden's Call for Unity and Healing Begins Self-Destructing.  Ever since Election Day, the calls for unity and healing from Democratic leaders, the Biden campaign, and the mainstream media (but I repeat myself) have been rolling in fast and furious.  We must now all join together in the spirit of bipartisanship in order to move our nation beyond the deep political divisions that exploded over the past four years, they have stated in so many words.  Joe Biden, in particular, has made frequent statements to this effect, claiming he's ready to start building bridges and forging ahead in an effort to get things done, yada yada.  Considering Biden and his surrogates have spent the last year and a half demonizing President Trump and his supporters as racists and "chumps", it's not too terribly surprising that not many Republicans have found the calls sincere enough to step up to the plate and oblige him beyond mouthing off platitudes about how we must respect the Electoral College.

Joe Biden's Inaugural Committee: 'Stay Home,' 'Limit Gatherings During the Inauguration'.  Joe Biden's Inaugural Committee does not want supporters to travel to Washington, D.C., in January for the swearing in of the 46th president.  The Presidential Inaugural Committee (PIC) consulted "with medical experts advising President-elect Joe Biden" and announced "initial protocols to protect public health during the inauguration," an event that takes place outside on the Capitol lawn.  Biden's advisors said in a press release that the "historic ceremony" will include "vigorous health and safety protocols," and "honors and resembled sacred American traditions while keeping Americans safe and preventing the spread of COVID-19 [Chinese coronavirus]."

I wish they were more concerned about keeping us free than keeping us safe.

Hunter Biden email says he must amend taxes after failing to report $400G in income from Burisma.  Now that the 2020 election has come and gone and the American people, have cast their votes, there's a sudden flow of information on Hunter Biden, the son of former Vice President Joe Biden.  Information that would not have been favorable to the Democratic nominee ahead of Election Day.  Information almost guaranteed to have been blacked out by the corrupt media establishment running interference for Biden, just as they blacked out reports of the candidate's ties to his son's nefarious business dealings.

Time To Heel.  President-Select, Trojan dementia patient, Joe Biden, has been attempting to utter the words his handlers put on his teleprompter on the rare occasions when they let him out of the basement. "Time to Heal" has been the slogan his PR flunkies have told him to yammer about regarding their fake plan to reunite the country after surviving four years of bad orange man.  The propaganda machine media gush with praise for all Biden's Deep State apparatchik cabinet selections as Biden's handlers attempt to engineer a 3rd Obama term.  Biden is the clueless "nice guy" dupe who mouths words of reconciliation, unity and healing, while his fabricating financier fascist controllers implement their Great Reset plan in conjunction with their global elite co-conspirators.  CNN conducts an "interview" with 3rd grade level questions, designed to comfort the ignorant masses.  Not one challenging question about his bagman Hunter or how he got 80 million votes without campaigning, putting forth his agenda or leaving his basement.  CNN and the rest of the propaganda corporate media are just a division of the Democrat party, along with Facebook, Twitter, Google, Soros, Bloomberg, CIA, FBI, and the rest of the Deep State empire.

Now we know for sure that our judges and justices are abject cowards.  [Scroll down]  Obviously, Biden is not well, he is declining quickly.  And now that the family's illegal financial dealings around the world are coming to light, their allegiance and submission to China for example.  Biden may have to resign (if inaugurated) within months.  If that happens and the absurdly unqualified Harris becomes president, the America we knew and loved will be over.  The US will be just another rough and brutal place run by some really awful people drunk on power.

Big Tech, MSM attempt to snuff out Hunter Biden investigation.  The mainstream media is being exposed for attempting to kill the New York Post's article on Hunter Biden.  Following the release of the article, mainstream news outlets began pumping out stories alleging the documents used in the article were apart of a Russian disinformation campaign or just not credible.  The majority of the media's reporting on Hunter Biden's shady business dealings attempted to dismiss the allegations.  At the same time, Big Tech media companies like Twitter and Facebook tried to limit the breadth of the stories reach online.  Twitter went as far as to suspend the New York Post's account, which is one of America's most read newspapers.  This week, the nation learned that, in fact, there is an active investigation underway into Hunter Biden's taxes.  While little is known about the case, the subject matter of the investigation, which has been going on since 2018, could prove some of the facts in the New York Post's article to be valid.

Only Then.  [Scroll down]  Now, they ask us to believe in an election, the results of which are so outlandish as to ask us to believe that Joe Biden, a person who could not stay in two previous presidential primary races; once for unethical behavior and once because he suffered a brain aneurysm, garnered more votes than Barack Obama at the height of his popularity.  Joe could not win more counties in 2020 than Hillary Clinton did in 2016.  The mathematical possibilities of his miraculous last-minute surge of votes (overnight and in the darkness) to beat Trump were one in a quadrillion, a number so vast not even congress can spend in that quantity yet.

Michigan's presidential electors vote for Biden, Harris at Capitol.  Michigan's 16 presidential electors cast their ballots Monday afternoon [12/14/2020] in the state Capitol for Democratic President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris following a bitterly contentious election process.  As the electors convened and organized, about a dozen Republicans attempted to enter the Capitol building as the Democratic electors were casting their votes inside.  They said they were GOP electors there to cast their vote for president.  Michigan State Police officers denied them entrance.

President Trump Threatens to 'Declassify Everything' Related to the Democrats.  President Donald Trump is still on the warpath.  On Saturday, he posted a tweet saying that he intends to "declassify everything" regarding the Hunter Biden investigation.  The president expressed his anger at the fact that Attorney General William Barr kept secret information regarding a Justice Department probe into Hunter Biden's business dealings and finances.  Last week, Hunter Biden, the son of former Vice President Joe Biden, publicly acknowledged that he is being investigated over issues concerning his taxes and income from Burisma, a Ukrainian oil and gas company.  The Wall Street Journal reported on Friday [12/11/2020] that Barr has known about the investigation into Hunter Biden since the spring, but worked to keep the information secret from the public.

Feds Issue Subpoena Against Hunter Biden For Key Records in Shady Business Dealings.  According to a new report from the Associated Press, a new subpoena was issued from the U.S. attorney's office in Delaware against former Vice President Joe Biden's son Hunter Biden over records relating to Burisma Holdings and Chinese companies.  This news comes just days after we discovered that Joe Biden's brother Jim Biden was also under federal investigation for a now-bankrupt healthcare firm.

Bill Barr directly intervened to keep the Hunter Biden probe secret before the election.  Attorney General Bill Barr used the force of his office to instruct prosecutors investigating Hunter Biden not to take any steps that might cause the probe to be publicly revealed in the run-up to the election.  The directive, reported in the Wall Street Journal, was in keeping with existing Justice Department policy against taking investigatory steps close to an election that might interfere with it.  Barr and his team took steps to 'insulate' the investigations, according to the report, even as President Donald Trump repeatedly demanded a probe of his political rival's son.

Feds Show They're Serious:  They Just Took a Big Step Against Hunter Biden.  Hunter Biden tried to get a jump on the media stories by describing the investigation against him before the media did.  When CNN contacted the Biden transition team to ask about the story they were planning to run about Hunter, the team used that as an opportunity to put them off suggest they were going to respond, but then put out their own press release spinning the story.  According to Hunter in a statement released by the transition team and run on their website, the federal prosecutors were looking into him for his "tax affairs."  Joe Biden has denied that he was involved with his government position in any way with his son's business.  But here he was not realizing the basics conflict, that he was using tax payer dollars and transition resources to defend his son and his son was using those taxpayer dollars to not tell us the full story.

Anyone surprised?
DOJ probe into Hunter Biden reportedly extends beyond Burisma.  A subpoena issued to Hunter Biden seeks information about his work with Ukrainian energy company Burisma, his dealings in China as well as documents from more than two dozen entities, according to a report on Sunday [12/13/2020].  President-elect Joe Biden's son revealed last week that the Justice Department is investigating his taxes while he held a lucrative seat on Burisma's board, but the new information indicates the probe into Hunter will examine a wide swath of his international pursuits, the Associated Press reported, citing a person familiar with the case.  It's unclear, the report said, whether Hunter's work on Burisma's board while his father served as vice president in the Obama administration is the main focus of the probe or whether the Justice Department is just collecting information about his sources of income.

Obama lets the cat out of the bag:  He's got plans to make Joe Biden his stooge.  Joe Biden, who couldn't even get President Obama's endorsement during the primaries, now has word that Obama may well use him as his marionette stooge for what's in fact a third Obama term.  He's not even trying to hide it. [...] Everyone suspected that this was the real idea, though, Biden serving as a placeholder for a third Obama term while Obama called the shots.  RedState points out that this is exactly what Vladimir Putin did, when election laws prohibited him from seeking an additional term, so he placed a obedient loyalist, Dmitri Medvedev, into the presidential slot until he could get himself back into power.  The same thing happened in Argentina as the Kirchner gang, husband and wife, traded off with each other for the nation's top job, leaving the country in shambles.

Biden's Catholic faith will be on full display as the first churchgoing president in decades.  Joe Biden rarely misses Sunday Mass.  So it was notable when the President-elect didn't attend church on November 29, the first Sunday of Advent and the beginning of the season when Roman Catholics like Biden prepare for Christmas.  Biden's absence was understandable, since just a day earlier he had broken his foot.  But the following weekend, Biden was back at his home parish in Wilmington, Delaware — St. Joseph on the Brandywine — for Saturday's vigil Mass.  He was there again on Tuesday on the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception, a holy day of obligation.

The Editor says...
[#1]  Anyone who serves as a leader in the Abortion Party is hardly a devout Catholic.  [#2] I read lots of news articles every day, and if Joe Biden attended church any time in the last six months, I haven't heard about it.  He hid in his basement almost every day.  If he had gone to church, we all would have heard about it.  [#3] Wasn't Barack H. Obama a regular church-goer — at least at Jeremiah Wright's TUCC?  After that, the only times Barack H. Obama went to church were those occasions when he was the featured speaker.  [#4] When a Republican attends church services, the Left howls about the "separation of church and state."

This investigation will probably come to a halt on January 20, 2021.

Attorneys for Biden family refuse to cooperate in probe, Catherine Herridge reports.  Unlike President Donald Trump's family and associates, Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden's family and associates refuse to cooperate with Senate investigators, according to the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs.  On Saturday [12/12/2020] investigative reporter Catherine Herridge released a press release from the committee detailing all the "outstanding requests to the Biden family and their associates" that have thus far gone unanswered.

Eric Swalwell, Hunter Biden and the DNCCP.  Low-hanging fruit.  When enemies of our country look to infiltrate and/or compromise someone to their side, that's exactly what they reach for.  No point in going to the top — the likelihood of getting to them, let alone turning them, is minimal.  But the easy targets, the ambitious or troubled, far enough away from the goal so as to not be noticed, but possibly on their way, are ripe for the pickings.  Those wishing this country ill need only an opportunity; an in.  With the same goals, only different tactics, the Chinese Communists went fishing for and caught Eric Swalwell and Hunter Biden.  Honestly, is anyone surprised that the Communist Chinese would seek and find welcoming arms in the Democratic Party?  Infiltrating the Republican Party would require the ability to pass off as someone who loves the country.  Even the best of actors can't stay in character forever.  A better approach to gain access to a nation's secrets is to find kindred spirits in the most like-minded political movement you can.  In the case of the Chinese Communist Party, Democrats were the obvious and easy choice.

Hunter Biden failed to disclose $400K in Burisma payments in 2014 tax return.  Hunter Biden failed to disclose $400,000 in payments he received from the Ukrainian energy company Burisma on his tax returns according to yet more revelations contained on his Delaware laptop, according to NBC News.  "In 2014 you joined the Burisma board and we still need to amend your 2014 returns to reflect the unreported Burisma income," wrote Hunter Biden's business partner Eric Schwerin in a 2017 email, NBC reported.  In 2014, Hunter Biden's father — President-elect Joe Biden — was serving as vice president of the United States.  Hunter Biden sat on the board of Burisma from 2014 to 2019.

Report: Bill Barr Knew of Criminal Investigations into Biden Family in Spring and Worked to Keep It Quiet.  A report within the Wall Street Journal does not necessarily come as a surprise; however, it also does little to provide solace for the lack of action by Attorney General Bill "Bondo" Barr.  According to the article AG Barr has known about at least two investigations related to the Biden family since early spring 2020, and he worked to keep them quiet.

So, Hunter Biden's Laptop Was Real After All, Huh?  Hunter Biden, an admitted drug abuser, abandoned one of his laptops at a repair shop less than five miles from his father's home.  The laptop is real.  The information on it is real.  The trouble Hunter finds himself in is real.  The NY Post's story was censored on Twitter, and the outlet's Twitter account was suspended.  A lot of other Twitter users (including yours truly) were suspended for talking about the story.  And now the Delaware computer repairman who stepped forward with hard evidence of Hunter Biden's misdeeds has been driven into hiding.

Exclusive:  Hunter Biden Called His Father And Chinese Business Partner 'Office Mates' In September 2017 Email.  Hunter Biden called his father, President-elect Joe Biden, and his Chinese business partner "office mates" in a Sept. 21, 2017, email to the general manager of his former Washington, D.C. office building.  "[P]lease have keys made available for new office mates," Hunter Biden wrote in the email before listing Joe Biden, his stepmother Jill Biden, his uncle Jim Biden and Gongwen Dong, who he identified as the "emissary" for the chairman of the now-bankrupt Chinese energy conglomerate CEFC.  Hunter Biden also requested that a sign be made for his office stating "The Biden Foundation" and "Hudson West (CEFC US)."

New Hunter Biden Email Further Implicates Joe Biden.  The Daily Caller is running an exclusive this evening which reveals a new email sent by Hunter Biden that further implicates his father.  While the elder Biden has steadfastly asserted he knew nothing about his son's overseas dealings, ample evidence has previously emerged saying that's almost certainly not true.  Now, this new email adds another piece to the puzzle. [...] This is a big deal because this means Joe Biden must have been aware of Gongwen Dong's presence and purpose.  They were quite literally sharing an office space according to this email from Hunter Biden.

Memo: Kamala Harris Implicated in Hunter Biden's China Energy Company Scheme.  In a story that received next to zero coverage in the mainstream media, an internal email/memo from Democrat presidential hopeful Joe Biden's brother, Jim Biden, to the hierarchy of SinoHawk Holdings, the partnership between the CEFC China Energy Company (CEFC) and the Biden family, cataloged a rich list of "key contacts" that included then-US Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), and other high-level Democrats and Progressives.  The memo was sent from Jim Biden to James Gilliar, Tony Bobulinski, Hunter Biden, and Rob Walker with the subject line, "Phase One Domestic Contacts/Project."

What Happens When a Communist Regime Penetrates Our Government.  [Scroll down]  So what will the Biden administration do about China?  One place to start making a good impression would be the full and frank disclosure of the $22 million that anonymous Chinese individuals or interests donated to the University of Pennsylvania's Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement.  During the Trump years, the so-called Penn Biden Center served as a kind of holding center for once and future Biden aides, including Tony Blinken, Biden's pick to be the next secretary of state.  So what's up with that $22 million?  Who gave it?  Why did they give it?  What are they getting for it?  If and when those questions are answered, there will be more questions to be asked.  A lot more.  Because this is Cold War II with China — and the stakes couldn't be higher.

Attorneys For Hunter Biden and James Biden Refusing to Cooperate with Senate Committees.  Senators Chuck Grassley (R-IA) and Ron Johnson (R-WI) on Saturday said attorneys for Hunter Biden and James Biden are refusing to cooperate with senate committees.  "After issuing our report on September 23 on the conflicts of interest and foreign financial entanglements of the Biden family, Senator Grassley and I have continued to seek information and testimony from the individuals involved," Johnson said referring to the bombshell senate report on Burisma corruption.  "Attorneys for Hunter and James Biden have refused to cooperate with the committees.  It should be noted that, collectively, President Trump's family and associates produced documents and agreed to appear at interviews with a number of congressional committees," the GOP senators said in a statement.

Joe Biden's 12 worst gaffes of all time.  Throughout his 47 years in public life, our presumptive president-elect has had a habit of letting his glib tongue run ahead of his brain.  Just last week, Biden raised eyebrows with a garbled explanation of how he and his soon-to-be veep, Kamala Harris, would resolve a serious disagreement.  "I will develop some disease and say I have to resign," he told CNN, as Harris shook her head in bewilderment.  Many supporters see Biden's verbal stumbles as endearing — but his chronic case of foot-in-mouth often reveals his ornery side.  Take the incident last December when he exploded at an Iowa Democrat who challenged him with some impertinent questions.

Email to Hunter Biden raises fresh questions about his tax dealings.  Hunter Biden's former business partner sent him an email in 2017 saying he did not disclose on his tax returns $400,000 in income from the Ukrainian natural gas company where he sat on the board, according to a copy of the email obtained by NBC News.  The message from Eric Schwerin, then president of Rosemont Seneca Partners, says Hunter Biden would need to "amend" his 2014 returns to reflect the "unreported" income, according to the copy of the email.  "In 2014 you joined the Burisma board and we still need to amend your 2014 returns to reflect the unreported Burisma income," says the email dated Jan. 16, 2017.

CNN's April Ryan To Other Journalists:  Stop Exposing Leaks On Biden.  CNN analyst and American Urban Radio Networks White House correspondent April Ryan wants the name of the person who taped a meeting between Joe Biden and civil rights leaders this week and then leaked the tape to the press.  According to Ms. Ryan, that person has some 'splainin' to do.  Her message is clear — during the Biden administration, there must be no unfavorable reporting provided by the use of leaks to the press.  Ryan was tweeting about the leaked tape that brought to light Biden's frustration about the defund the police message coming from so many Democrats, especially the far-left progressive wing of the party.  He told the civil rights leaders that the defund the police message allowed Republicans to "beat the living hell out of us" in down-ballot races.  He was pointing out that though he won the presidential election, Republicans flipped seats in the House and increased their numbers in state and local offices.  The blue tsunami that we were promised in the November election never happened.

Feds Show They're Serious:  They Just Took a Big Step Against Hunter Biden.  According to the Associated Press, the investigation by the U.S. Attorney's Office in Delaware just dropped a subpoena on Hunter and they're not just interested in tax records.  They want records related to more than two dozen entities including Burisma Holdings as well as information related to his Chinese business dealings and "other financial transactions."  Imagine all the things that will turn up and the information that can come out.  It's going to be a hot time for Joe Biden pretty soon.  Hunter Biden has come under question because he was named to the board of Burisma in 2014 when they were trying to improve their image and their head was under investigation.  That of course was also when his father Joe was still Vice President.

Gun control first for Biden executive orders.  Joe Biden plans to move quickly against guns, adding the issue to his list of first executive orders, according to his top policy aide.  Stef Feldman, the national policy director of Biden's presidential campaign, included the Democrat's gun plan in a list of initial executive actions set to be unleashed after Inauguration Day.  Speaking in a Zoom briefing hosted by Georgetown University's Institute of Politics and Public Service, she said that Biden is planning to "make big, bold changes through executive action, not just on policing and climate like we talked about previously, but in healthcare and education on gun violence, on a range of issues."  She added that "there's really a lot you can do through guidance and executive action."

Report: Joe Biden's Brother Under Federal Investigation for Role in Bankrupt Healthcare Firm.  Joe Biden's younger brother, James, is purportedly under federal investigation by the United States Attorney in the Western District of Pennsylvania for his role in a now-bankrupt healthcare firm.  On Wednesday [12/9/2020], Politico reported that federal prosecutors "have been asking about James Biden's dealings" with Americore Health, a company that operates rural hospitals.

Report: Hunter Biden Investigation Linked to Chinese Company in Laptop Emails.  CNN's Simon Prokupecz reported Wednesday that an investigation into Hunter Biden's taxes includes a gift given to him in 2017 by Ye Jianming, the founder of the CEFC China Energy Co.  Emails reported by the New York Post from Hunter Biden's laptop in October — which CNN deliberately ignored — suggested that Hunter Biden was involved in a joint venture with CEFC to create a new company in which former Vice President Joe Biden may have been assigned a 10% ownership stake.

4 Points About the Federal Prosecutor Investigating Hunter Biden.  The Justice Department's investigation of Hunter Biden's financial dealings is being led by a federal prosecutor who was appointed by President Donald Trump with the endorsement of two Democratic senators.  Former Vice President Joe Biden's son announced Wednesday that he had just learned he is under investigation by the U.S. Attorney's Office in Delaware for tax-related issues.  David C. Weiss is U.S. attorney for the district of Delaware.  His investigation, which began in late 2018, includes Hunter Biden's Chinese business dealings, The Associated Press reported.  Should Joe Biden become president Jan. 20, it's not clear what the future holds for Weiss, since most incoming administrations appoint new U.S. attorneys.

Game On:  Tom Cotton Comes Out Swinging, Calls for Hunter Biden Special Counsel.  The news on Hunter Biden is not good, or at least it's not good if your name is Joe Biden.  After years of various reports, it has been confirmed that the son of the (trigger warning for Chris Wallace) former vice president is under federal investigation.  And while Hunter and his dad tried to spin this as a routine tax matter, the real story is that they are looking into money laundering and other serious crimes.  Given that, and given that Joe Biden is probably going to be the next president (at least for a little while), the next question becomes how exactly this investigation should be handled.

Biden Refuses to Discuss Family's Legal Troubles: 'I'm Proud of My Son'.  Joe Biden is refusing to discuss the legal troubles of his son amid revelations that the Department of Justice is investigating the younger Biden's "tax affairs."  Biden, who has been declared president-elect by numerous media outlets, was asked after a press conference on Friday [12/11/2020] in Wilmington, Delaware, if his son, Hunter, "committed a crime."  The question was in regards to Hunter Biden's recent admission that he had been informed by the United States Attorney of Delaware that there was an open investigation into his "tax affairs."

Great news:  It's also okay to report on James Biden's corruption, too.  Some of us haven't shied away from the Biden Inc graft over the last year, including some legit media outlets — Politico, for instance, which had been rather vocal about it during the primaries.  Now that the general election has concluded, however, perhaps we'll start to hear more about Hunter, James, and maybe even Frank.  Today, however, it's Biden's brother James that has the graft hot seat.  The newly reported investigation into Hunter also includes Uncle Jim.

Will Anyone Face Any Consequences For Gaslighting Americans On The Hunter Biden Story?  So now that it is overwhelmingly evident the New York Post's initial Hunter and Jim Biden story wasn't based on hacked material, wasn't Russian misinformation, is clearly something people deserved to know before voting, and that big tech and America's corporate media tried to make sure that didn't happen — and that once again rather than alter their behavior or ask for forgiveness, they're going to instead attempt to gaslight you about all of it — I have a number of questions.  First, when did Joe Biden first learn that his repeated claims the stories about his son and his brother were Fake News — or in his phrasing, debunked, smears, and the like — were in fact false?  When was he briefed on this exactly, and by whom?  And why, given that every effort was made to distance Hunter from the campaign, did the defensive announcement come from the Transition instead of just from Hunter himself if Joe, as he has always claimed, has nothing to do with this?

Why They Hate Trump.  [Scroll down]  Even the Court can't defend us against the corruption of the political elite.  They believe they have a right to practice graft and influence peddling, and to reap the benefits of drugs, fine liquor, call girls, and the rest.  Eliot Spitzer and "Client 9" aren't the only politicians caught up in prostitution — Hunter Biden may be worse.  As progressives see it, this behavior is just something to smirk about and look the other way.  They think it's provincial to think there's anything wrong with Hunter's behavior.  Will Hunter Biden's behavior change if his father becomes president?

Confirmed: Barr kept Hunter Biden probe a secret until after Election Day.  Someone on Twitter said last night that this is the most ethical thing Barr has done as Attorney General and he's probably going to get fired for it.  Which would make this administration two for two in dispatching AGs for the crime of behaving ethically.  I'll be a little surprised if he survives the day.  Trump was already thinking of firing him.  Now he has confirmation from the WSJ that Barr could have revealed that Hunter Biden was under federal investigation at any time before the election — and chose not to.

Daily Beast:  Isn't it odd that the Hunter Biden money-laundering probe went "largely unnoticed" until now?  "Largely unnoticed," purposely ignored, or actively suppressed?  The Daily Beast's reporting team on Hunter Biden's legal woes sound somewhat surprised that the FBI's money-laundering probe didn't get noticed before the election: [...] The word "unnoticed" is doing an awful lot of heavy lifting in this sentence.  Not only did it get noticed, it got reported by Sinclair TV's James Rosen a few days before the election.  A large number of online outlets — mostly conservative — picked up on Rosen's report about the FBI's criminal probe of Hunter Biden, including us.  Rosen reported that Tony Bobulinski had cooperated in the probe, and that its focus was money laundering.

Hunter Biden probe followed string of suspicious foreign bank transfers.  Hunter Biden, a son of presumptive President-elect Joseph R. Biden, capitalized on a steady influx of suspicious multimillion-dollar foreign bank transfers before the Justice Department opened a criminal investigation in 2018 into whether he dodged federal taxes.  Senate Republicans laid out his network of shady beneficiaries, including oligarchs in Moscow and Ukraine and a tycoon linked to the Chinese Communist Party in Beijing, from 2014 to 2017.  Their Sept. 18 report was based on suspicious activity reports filed with the Treasury Department's financial crimes enforcement network.  Lending institutions contact the agency when they suspect money laundering and/or tax evasion.  Transactions like Hunter Biden's "can trigger such an investigation," said Brett L. Tolman, a former U.S. attorney for Utah.  "Typically it starts as money laundering or tax [evasion] but can expand."

Here Are All The Times Joe Biden Falsely Claimed Stories About Hunter Were Debunked.  For months, former Vice President Joe Biden has vehemently denied that any evidence exists that his son, Hunter, was involved in criminal activity or wrongdoing.  These denials now look like dishonesty after the Biden-Harris transition team released a statement Wednesday [12/9/2020] acknowledging that Hunter is indeed under investigation by the Department of Justice for potential tax crimes.  "I learned yesterday for the first time that the U.S. Attorney's Office in Delaware advised my legal counsel, also yesterday, that they are investigating my tax affairs," Hunter wrote in the statement.  This news, as Federalist Editor Mollie Hemingway pointed out, is not actually new and was reported before the election, but was purposefully suppressed by gatekeepers like Facebook, Twitter, and corporate media outlets who ignored the reporting on Hunter Biden's affairs.

My Prediction:  If Joe Biden Is Sworn in, the Investigation of Hunter Biden Will Lead to Joe's Resignation.  There is no "happy ending" to this story for the Biden family.  Joe Biden has wanted to be President for 45 years — maybe more — and if he makes it to January 21, 2021, he may actually realize that dream.  The revelation yesterday by Hunter Biden that his attorney has been advised by the US Attorney's Office in Delaware that he is under investigation offers little in the way of specifics, but an informed view of this acknowledgment reveals some practical issues that are of profound significance — in ways that are not good for Joe Biden.  Such notification likely came by way of a "Target Letter", which is the kind of "overt step" that would have been against DOJ Policy during the self-imposed "quiet period" leading up to the election.  First, Hunter Biden's public statement claims that his taxes are under investigation.  That is likely true, but the fact that the investigation is located in the US Attorney's Office for Delaware means this is not just a tax case.

Federal authorities conducting criminal probe into hospital business tied to Biden's brother:  Report.  Federal authorities are reportedly conducting a criminal investigation into a hospital business that has ties to President-elect Joe Biden's younger brother.  According to a report by Politico, the FBI has asked questions about James Biden's role in a healthcare business that was raided earlier this year by federal authorities, though details on the investigation remain unclear.  The FBI seized boxes of documents from Americore Health hospital in Ellwood City, Pennsylvania, but there was no indication the raid was due to any actions related to James Biden, who hasn't been accused of criminal wrongdoing.  Americore's owner has battled its own legal problems and allegations of mismanagement.

Justice Department's interest in Hunter Biden covered more than taxes.  The federal investigation into President-elect Joe Biden's son Hunter has been more extensive than a statement from Hunter Biden indicates, according to a person with firsthand knowledge of the investigation.  On Wednesday [12/9/2020], Hunter Biden said he had been contacted about a tax investigation out of the U.S. Attorney's Office in Delaware.  In addition to Delaware, the securities fraud unit in the Southern District of New York also scrutinized Hunter Biden's finances, according to the person with direct knowledge of the investigation.  The person said that, as of early last year, investigators in Delaware and Washington were also probing potential money laundering and Hunter Biden's foreign ties.  The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because they are not authorized to discuss the matter publicly.

How the media covered up the Hunter Biden story — until after the election.  It's now clear that the Hunter Biden story was real, with Hunter himself acknowledging a federal probe into his taxes — one that reportedly began in 2018.  Really, it was always clear.  Yet, when The New York Post broke the details, virtually the entire journalistic establishment and left-wing punditsphere defamed the newspaper, claiming it was passing on Russian "disinformation" or partisan fabrications.  The political media quickly began pumping out process stories about the alleged discord in The Post's newsroom and about the problems with the reporting.  In so doing, of course, they did practically no reporting on the substantive allegations that Joe Biden's family had spent years cashing in on his influence.  Tech companies, spurred on by these censorious journalists, shut down the account of one of America's most-read newspapers to inhibit users from reading the story.  It was completely unprecedented.

The Editor says...
The whole story about Hunter Biden's laptop (containing courtroom-quality evidence of corruption) would still be under the rug today except that Joe Biden is no longer useful to the Democratic Party.  Joe Biden is now being set up for a hasty resignation — probably after he is sworn in as president, so he can have a lifetime of benefits and his wife can make book deals.  Then the real nominee, Harris, takes over and names her vice-president — probably either Hillary Clinton, Valerie Jarrett, Oprah Winfrey, or Michelle Obama.  Along the way, the news media will only report the stories they are permitted to mention — by their puppeteers in the Democratic Party.

Joe Biden's Son, Hunter, Officially Under Investigation Over Chinese Money.  On Wednesday [12/9/2020], Hunter Biden purported president-elect Joe Biden's son, admitted that he is under investigation for tax evasion over millions in payments from China.  Just ahead of the 2020 election, the New York Post reported that emails in Hunter Biden's abandoned computer showed that he was involved in a joint venture with CEFC to create a new company in which former Vice President Joe Biden had a 10% stake.  On Wednesday, the Biden campaign put out a statement admitting that Hunter is being investigated for fraud and money laundering.

2.8-carat, $80K diamond given to Hunter Biden reportedly part of probe.  A diamond given to Hunter Biden by a since-vanished Chinese energy tycoon is part of the ongoing tax fraud probe and a potentially broader probe into President-elect Joe Biden's son, according to a report Thursday [12/10/2020].  Investigators have examined the gift of the 2.8-carat gem Hunter got from CEFE China Energy founder Ye Jianming in 2017, CNN reported, citing a source briefed on the matter.  It's unclear whether the diamond — which has been estimated to be worth as much as $80,000 — remains a focus of the tax probe that Hunter and his father's transition team unexpectedly revealed on Wednesday, according to CNN.

Intelligence expert weighs in on what a spy could gather by lurking on Facebook friends lists.  Christine Fang, or Fang Fang, a suspected spy whose reported mission was to network with and befriend up-and-coming American officials on behalf of China, remained Facebook "friends" with a number of her lesser targets for years after her cover was blown and she left the country in 2015.  Among her most high-profile targets was Rep. Eric Swalwell, who cut ties with her after the FBI briefed him on her activities, also in 2015.  But his father and brother were among dozens of people who remained on her Facebook friends list until this week.  While it's unclear whether she continued to maintain the account herself or if her victims even realized they were possibly being spied upon, China likely was monitoring the feed to mine potentially useful information, experts believe.

Trump Ally Shames NY Times Reporter for Dismissing Hunter Biden Accuser.  Arthur Schwartz, a close ally of Donald Trump Jr. tweeted some juicy material on Thursday morning [12/10/2020], claiming he sat in on a phone call between former Hunter Biden business partner Tony Bobulinski and New York Times reporter Kenneth Vogel, who he said was focused on "discrediting the Biden-China docs & emails."

Report: Joe Biden Already Planning Executive Orders On Gun Control.  Joe Biden has not even been certified as the winner of the 2020 election yet, but is already reportedly crafting new measures for gun control.  And it should come as no surprise that he is not even planning legislation to send to America's representatives but rather is planning to take steps through executive action.

Circling Vultures:  The far left is at war with Biden and it's getting out into the open.  We think of Joe Biden as a Democrat wretch whose main focus is on thwarting President Trump.  But have you gotten a load of the war he's having with the far left of his party?  Those guys seems to be circling in for some kind of kill. [...] Suddenly the mainstream media, Biden's handmaiden up until now, along with their social media coevals, are not ignoring Hunter Biden. [...] Sure, Hunter Biden is news, he's been news for awhile.  But what's maybe even bigger news is that the leftist press is finally covering it.

Joe Biden, the Manchurian President.  The Chinese government didn't just want America or Donald Trump to lose, they apparently wanted Joe Biden to win.  Cui bono?  Biden has been thoroughly corrupted through the business dealings of his son, Hunter, according to well-documented public information and confirmed by Joe's own words, and not just corrupted by China.  We know about the Ukraine and Burisma, and that Hunter also allegedly accepted $3.5 million dollars from Elena Baturina, a Russian billionaire.  We have evidence, and a corroborating witness.  Everyone seems to have forgotten that Tony Bobulinski's claims confirm the authenticity of Hunter's laptop as indisputable evidence of Joe Biden's corruption.  Bobulinski, a patriotic American citizen, came forward to defend himself against accusations of being part of a Russian disinformation campaign and confirmed that Joe Biden accepted millions of dollars from the Communist Chinese through his son Hunter.  The evidence of Joe Biden's corruption is ubiquitous, actually, and that body of evidence grows by the day.  Tucker Carlson's most recent bombshell report revealed that a Chinese economics professor confirmed in a speech that foreign agents have corrupted our federal government at the highest levels.

Joe Biden's Brother James Biden Also Under Federal Investigation:  Report.  James Biden, brother and alleged business partner of Democrat presidential nominee former Vice President Joe Biden, is under federal investigation, according to a report by Politico published late Wednesday night [12/9/2020].  The investigation into Joe Biden's brother was included in an article about the extent of the federal investigation into Joe Biden's son Hunter Biden.  The Politico report claims Joe Biden does not appear to be under investigation.

Hunter Biden reveals he is being probed by federal prosecutors over his taxes — his Chinese business dealings and NOT contents of his laptop.  President-elect Joe Biden insisted Wednesday he is 'proud' of Hunter after federal prosecutors publicly launched a probe into his son's taxes.  Federal authorities had paused their investigation in the run up to the election to avoid affecting the outcome, which would be a breach of the Justice Department guidelines.  Now the election is over, prosecutors in Delaware, the IRS Criminal Investigation agency and the FBI, have stepped up their probe by issuing subpoenas and seeking interviews, CNN reports.

Federal criminal investigation into Hunter Biden focuses on his business dealings in China.  After going quiet in the months before the election, federal authorities are now actively investigating the business dealings of Hunter Biden, a person with knowledge of the probe said.  His father, President-elect Joe Biden, is not implicated.  Now that the election is over, the investigation is entering a new phase.  Federal prosecutors in Delaware, working with the IRS Criminal Investigation agency and the FBI, are taking overt steps such as issuing subpoenas and seeking interviews, the person with knowledge said.  Activity in the investigation had gone covert in recent months due to Justice Department guidelines prohibiting overt actions that could affect an election, the person said.

Hunter Biden under federal investigation for possible tax fraud.  President-elect Joe Biden's son revealed Wednesday [12/9/2020] that he's under federal investigation for possible tax fraud, with a report saying the Justice Department is examining his overseas business dealings.  The probe also reportedly involves a laptop that belonged to Hunter Biden, the existence of which was first reported by The Post, and which contains communciations and documents detailing some of his business dealings in China and Ukraine.  Hunter Biden, 50, disclosed the probe in a statement released by his father's presidential transition office.

Mainstream Media, Big Tech Coverup Collapses with Hunter Biden Investigation.  The revelation Wednesday [12/9/2020] that Hunter Biden is under investigation for tax violations relating to his foreign business affairs confirms that the media/Big Tech censorship of stories during the election about his laptop and emails was entirely without merit.  When the New York Post reported on October 14 that Hunter Biden had introduced an official from the corrupt Ukrainian energy company Burisma to then-Vice President Joe Biden — contrary to the latter's denials that he had ever spoken to his family about their businesses — Facebook announced that it would be suppressing the story, and Twitter prevented people from sharing it.  Those who dared were suspended; the Post itself was locked out of its account for more than two weeks.

The Editor says...
The Democrats are wasting no time replacing Biden with Harris — possibly before Biden is inaugurated.

This Election Doesn't Pass the Smell Test.  Let's start with this inconvenient and overriding truth about the 2020 election:  there is no such thing as a Joe Biden fan.  Nobody actually likes Joe Biden, nobody admires him, nobody looks up to him.  He's no one's idea of role model or an aspiration.  Throughout his nearly 50-year career as a Washington hack politician — a nobody from a state that most Americans can't find on a map, a lifelong, superannuated swamp dweller who has enriched himself and his family through "public service" and contributed nothing to the commonweal — Biden, 78, has "run" for president on a couple of occasions, only to discover that nobody cared. [...] And yet here he is, the self-proclaimed "president-elect" of the United States, a doddering senescent braggart, serial liar, plagiarist, and handsy hair-sniffer, who is even now assembling a fantasy cabinet chosen strictly along the progressive lines of race, sex, and class.  If the count is to be believed, Biden somehow received more votes for president (80 million) than anyone in history, even more than the media-canonized Barack Hussein Obama, whose yes-man and water boy Biden was for eight years.

Senate Committees Drop New Report on Hunter Biden, Alarming Connections to China.  The Republican led Senate Finance and Homeland Security Committees published a new and lengthy report Tuesday evening further detailing national security concerns related to Hunter Biden's shady foreign dealings in China and Ukraine.  "The Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs (HSGAC) and the Senate Committee on Finance undertook this investigation into potential conflicts of interest, and the involvement of the Biden family in foreign business ventures while Joe Biden was vice president, following allegations that the Obama administration's Ukraine policy could have been affected by Hunter Biden's position on the board of Burisma, and that family members may have improperly sought to benefit from their relationship with the vice president," the report states.  The Committees found the relationship between the Biden family, through Hunter and former Vice President Joe Biden's brother James, is deeply connected to the Chinese Communist Party.

Joe Biden's Latest Speech Shows the Democrat Bait and Switch is a Scandal.  It's been a while since I've written on Joe Biden turning into a mental dumpster fire for the cameras.  That's partly because he's been mostly in hiding (even more so than usual) since the election.  There's also been a lot of other news out there to cover.  But rest assured, Biden's mental acuity has not been the recipient of a miraculous change.  He's still as incapable and obviously senile as he was during the campaign.  Case in point, today [12/8/2020] Biden gave a speech in which he appeared to be a dead man walking:  At one point he announces Xavier Becerra for Health and Human Services head, except he is so far gone that he couldn't get either one of those points correct.

Biden botches HHS pick Becerra's name, calls nominee 'Secretary of Health and Education Services'.  President-elect Joe Biden did not make the smoothest introduction of Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary nominee Xavier Becerra during a Tuesday [12/8/2020] event unveiling Biden's health and coronavirus team.  On Monday, the Biden transition announced that Becerra, California's attorney general and a former Democratic congressman, would be the president-elect's pick to head HHS. The choice led to criticism from prominent Republicans who have pointed to Becerra's past support for Medicare-for-all and his progressive stance on abortion.  However, Biden briefly took the focus off that controversy by botching the formal introduction of the pick.

The Saddest Inauguration Ever?  Joe Biden Just Canceled The 'Crowds', Instead Plans To Take His Swearing-In Virtual.  Sure, the media says that Joe Biden will be the next president.  Odd how we've hardly seen him lately, huh?  Yeah, he broke his foot.  But if you think that Hidin' Basement Joe was gone, think again.  When he did show up for election events, he could only muster a small crowd.  And now the man with the lowest enthusiasm for a candidate in decades seems to be continuing that pattern.  Because, blaming COVID, he wants to put on what might be considered the saddest inauguration in history.

The Editor says...
I suspect the real reason for the internet-only swearing-in ceremony is that the Socialist Democrats want to avoid the impromptu Trump rally that would take place at the Capitol, if Biden were to appear in person.  Biden's oath of office would probably be drowned out by the loudest angry, booing crowd ever seen there.  In fact, if he won't even show up to be sworn in, Mr. Biden may never make another public appearance.

Schumer: Biden 'Considering' Forgiving $50,000 in Student Loan Debt via Executive Action.  President-elect Joe Biden is "considering" forgiving $50,000 in federal student loan debt for low-income and middle class students, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.) said Monday [12/7/2020].  Schumer held a press conference alongside Democratic Congressmen-elect Ritchie Torres, Mondaire Jones and Jamaal Bowman of New York, during which the group announced they have "come to the conclusion" that Biden can "forgive $50,000 of debt the first day he becomes president."  "You don't need Congress, all you need is the flick of a pen and President-elect Biden — then President Biden — can make this happen," Schumer said.

The Editor says...
[#1] Apparently it is Harris/Biden's intention to rule by decree, bypassing the Congress.  [#2] Why not forgive the national debt, too?  Or is that what the "Great Reset" is all about?

Key battleground states show massive election fraud, voting irregularities totally erase Biden's lead.  Voting irregularities and evidence of fraud are quickly piling up in key battleground states across the country.  [Video clip]

GOP Rep. Ken Buck calls for Hunter Biden special counsel in letter to Barr.  Republican Rep. Ken Buck on Monday urged Attorney General William Barr to appoint a special counsel to investigate Hunter Biden's business dealings and a laptop purportedly belonging to him in order to ensure an investigation "free from political interference."  In a letter sent to Barr, obtained by Fox News, Buck, R-Colo., urged him to "appoint a Special Counsel to investigate Mr. Hunter Biden's conduct and the contents of his laptop that is currently in the Federal Bureau of Investigation's possession."  "This investigation is critical to defending the integrity of our republic and ensuring a potential Biden Administration will not be the subject of undue foreign interference," Buck wrote.

Biden Reveals He's Completely Ignorant About 'Science' Behind Coronavirus.  Joe Biden basically built his whole campaign around bashing President Donald Trump over the coronavirus.  Never mind that virtually every position he took, he was wrong, late or copying Trump on.  Some big "plan."  But that's Joe.  But you would think with focusing completely on that and hiding out in his basement otherwise, that he would have been able to absorb at least some basic facts about the coronavirus.  But apparently not.  According to Biden, who claims to be about the "science," elementary schools are where people have the highest risk of transmission of the virus. [...] But Joe's going to solve that "high" transmission problem that doesn't exist.  How?  He's going to spend $100 billion of our money to order smaller classes by hiring more teachers.  Of course you'd have to have more physical spaces, so more money for that as well.

The Editor says...
Obviously Mr. Biden is pandering to the teachers' unions.

Biden contradicts Obama's memoir in which he opposed the mission to kill Bin Laden and claims he told Barack to 'trust your gut'.  Joe Biden has continued to contradict his story regarding his role in the 2011 mission to kill Osama bin Laden, claiming he had suggested doing 'one more pass' over the compound, before telling Obama to 'trust his instincts'.  The president-elect recalled the administration's discussion on whether or not to take action during Operation Neptune Spear, in CNN's new documentary, 'President in Waiting,' that aired Saturday night [12/5/2020].  "When it came time to go or not go, the president went around the room.  I think there were 17 people around the table ... and [he] said, 'what do you think we should do?'" Biden said in the film.

Minnesota Witness:  Mentally Handicapped Individuals Forced to Vote for Biden.  Stealing the elderly and mentally disabled vote is a well-documented and fraudulent election practice taking place across the nation.  Specifically, voting "handlers" have been known to register to vote on behalf of these vulnerable citizens or force them to vote for the candidate they are representing.  On Nov. 2, 2020, in Otsego, Minnesota, a retired construction worker, developer, and land investor made one such declaration.

Is America ready to commit suicide?  The presidential election has been hijacked by the radical left.  The investigations and appeals are proceeding according to law, that is to say methodically — and, therefore, slowly.  It is conceivable that there will not be enough time remaining for the process to be completed before the Electoral College casts its votes.  This means that Joe Biden may be installed in the White House after fraudulently winning the election.

Canceling Christmas:  The COVID Straw to Break the Camel's Back?  "Christmas is going to be a lot harder," Joe Biden told an audience in a virtual briefing on December 2.  "I don't want to scare anyone here, but understand the facts.  We're likely to lose another 250,000 people dead between now and January ... because people aren't paying attention."  The purpose of Biden's statements was clearly to scare people into canceling their holiday travel plans and embracing lockdowns, making his opening disclaimer a complete lie.  He certainly aims to provoke panic, but any reasonable person knows that this particular prediction is a desperate attempt at fear-mongering. [...] Biden's purposefully exaggerated and dark prediction, thankfully, isn't "likely" to happen at all.  What's more, Americans all know it.  That's why they traveled for Thanksgiving and will travel for Christmas, too.  That's a problem for the media and progressives, because they like to imagine the American people to be children who can't be trusted with access to the cookie jar, and that's why, for their own good, daddy government and mommy media need to hide it from time to time.

Joe Biden:  Unity, Fraud, and Power.  It's this column's opinion that Biden isn't actively provoking conflict by calling for unity.  Instead that's simply evidence of a has-been political hack saying the things has-been political hacks can be expected to say.  Typically someone who wins a presidential election calls for unity, and Biden thinks he's won, so he's calling for unity.  It comes off as stupid, but so does Biden.  But a significant portion of America's voting public sees something else in those calls.  And they shouldn't be dismissed.  If Joe Biden truly wanted unity, rather than political power, he would not be claiming himself "president-elect."  He is most certainly not "president-elect" and cannot be so until one of two things happens.  Either President Trump must concede the election in order to make Biden truly president-elect or the Electoral College must meet and award Biden 270 of its 538 votes.  Neither of those has happened. [...] So what he's asking for is not unity.  It's obedience.

Former Philly Archbishop:  Joe Biden Should Be Denied Holy Communion.  Though Joe Biden may indeed be a Catholic, he directly opposes church teaching on grave moral matters, especially abortion.  As a public servant committing a public sin, church teaching stipulates that he should be denied access to the sacrament of Holy Communion until he repents.  However, D.C. Cardinal Wilton Gregory has said he will administer Holy Communion to Joe Biden in the spirit of dialogue; former Philadelphia Archbishop Charles Chaput disagrees.

Official Catholic doctrine on pro-abortion politicians:
Worthiness to Receive Holy Communion:  General Principles.  [Scroll down]  Regarding the grave sin of abortion or euthanasia, when a person's formal cooperation becomes manifest (understood, in the case of a Catholic politician, as his consistently campaigning and voting for permissive abortion and euthanasia laws), his Pastor should meet with him, instructing him about the Church's teaching, informing him that he is not to present himself for Holy Communion until he brings to an end the objective situation of sin, and warning him that he will otherwise be denied the Eucharist.

Mr. Biden and the Matter of Scandal.  Public figures who identify as "Catholic" give scandal to the faithful when receiving Communion by creating the impression that the moral laws of the Church are optional.  And bishops give similar scandal by not speaking up publicly about the issue and danger of sacrilege.

Biden's Disturbing Answer on How He'll Resolve Fundamental Differences With Kamala Harris.  Joe Biden and Kamala Harris gave a joint interview to CNN's Jake Tapper on Thursday.  Biden also gave one of his signature, bewildering answers when asked how he plans to resolve fundamental disagreements with his vice president.  "When we disagree, so far it's been just like when Barack and I did," Biden said. "... And like I told Barack, if I reach something where there's a fundamental disagreement we have based on a moral principle, I'll develop some disease and say I have to resign."  So if and when Biden realizes that he has fundamental disagreements with his vice president, the most liberal member of the U.S. Senate, we can expect Biden to say that he has developed a disease and resign?  My guess is COVID or some form of dementia.

Biden: If Kamala And I Disagree, *Someone* Will Claim A Disease And Resign.  Under normal circumstances, this might be an amusing way of understanding the ethics of serving in an administration.  And it still might be, if not for a lack of clarity on precisely to whom Joe Biden applies this standard, especially as the nation's oldest presumptive president prepares to take office.  CNN's Jake Tapper wondered how Biden and Kamala Harris, once bitter rivals, have gotten along as running mates and now transitioning to office.  Just fine, Biden said, but if that changes, Biden says he'll fall back on the understanding he had with Barack Obama.  Someone will have to "develop a disease and resign," Biden says, but who?

Joe Biden says Hunter won't work any jobs that conflict with his role as president.  President-elect Joe Biden on Thursday said that his son Hunter Biden won't reap an overseas business windfall from his new job as commander in chief.  "My son, my family will not be involved in any business, any enterprise that is in conflict with or appears to be in conflict with where there's appropriate distance from the presidency and government," Biden told CNN journalist Jake Tapper in a taped interview.  Hunter Biden's business relationships in China, Kazakhstan, Russia and Ukraine became a major focus in the weeks ahead of the Nov. 3 election.  An abandoned laptop provided by a Delaware computer repairman to President Trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani contained bombshell documents appearing to implicate Joe Biden in his son's business relationships in China and Ukraine.

Biden to urge mask-wearing for first 100 days in office.  President-elect Joe Biden plans to call on Americans to wear masks for his first 100 days in office, he announced Thursday [12/3/2020].  Biden has long urged Americans to wear masks to combat the COVID-19 pandemic.  During an interview with CNN's Jake Tapper on Thursday, he put a specific time frame on what his request will be.  "Just 100 days to mask, not forever.  100 days.  And I think we'll see a significant reduction" in COVID-19 infections, Biden said, according to a preview of the interview that will air Thursday evening.

The Editor says...
Politicians are quick to say things like, "It's only for 100 days."  What they never say is, "This will be the last 100 days, and the problem will be solved."  There will always be an extension, a renewal, a second (third, or fourth) wave, accompanied by some lame excuse.  The ugly truth is that wearing masks is all about showing your submission to the state.  Wearing masks accomplishes little else.

The Best Security Cabinet the Yuan Can Buy.  If Joe Biden assumes office in January, it appears that he will make boring tedium and reliability a priority.  The machine is going to run so smoothly that it can be put in the toddler's room and not even interrupt nap time, which is precisely the point.  Apart from critics in the pundit sphere, the conservative grassroots, and the far-Left anti-war movement, many of the faceless myrmidons who will fill the administration are strangers with an almost invisible presence in the public eye.  They are trading in the flashy tones of Senators Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) for the bland and uninspiring cadence of Janet Yellen at Treasury and Alejandro Mayorkas at Homeland Security.  The list is so full of no-names that USA Today mostly focused on their ethnic and family heritage lines, which obscures another major issue:  their lack of fame is not an indicator of clean records.

MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell hits Biden team for not being 'forthcoming' about president-elect's foot injury.  MSNBC anchor Andrea Mitchell dinged the Biden team Monday [11/30/2020] for their lack of transparency about the president-elect's foot injury over the holdiay weekend.  On Sunday, Biden's doctor announced that the president-elect had twisted his ankle the day before while playing with his dog, Major.  The injury will likely require Biden to wear a walking boot.  "Initial x-rays are reassuring that there is no obvious fracture and he will be getting an additional CT for more detailed imaging," Dr. Kevin O'Connor said in a statement.  "Follow-up CT scan confirmed hairline (small) fractures of President-elect Biden's lateral and intermediate cuneiform bones, which are in the mid-foot.  It is anticipated that he will likely require a walking boot for several weeks."

The True Source of Catholic Democratic Confusion.  Townhall reports that Los Angeles Archbishop José Gomez, president of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB), has formed a working group of bishops expressly "to navigate challenges posed by a Biden administration."  The archbishop is concerned that Biden's "positions that are opposed to Church teaching, like abortion," not only "pose a serious threat to the common good whenever any politician supports them," but cause "confusion among the faithful about what the church actually teaches on these questions."  It's a sad truth that every Catholic officeholder professing a heart aflame for the faith who meanwhile toils night and day for a party at war with every Christian value, wouldn't be in office without the votes of a lot of confused Catholics.  The most notorious burning heart right now beats inside Joe Biden, the man NPR loves to remind listeners "carries a rosary in his pocket and attends Mass every Sunday."  And of course Nancy Pelosi, whose grating sanctimony as she defends abortion as "sacred ground," or lectures on the demands of morality (Trump's impeachment), and depths of immorality (a secure national border), are peddled to Catholics as the prayerful outpourings of an "ardent" practitioner of the faith.

Joe Biden cabinet picks are setting presidency up to be 'Swamp Things 2'.  John freakin' Kerry.  Again.  After a summer of discontent driven in part by protests against racial injustice and in part by the not-altogether-unrelated desire of a great many Americans to be rid of Donald Trump, Joe Biden has responded to his party's call for sweeping social change by taking a deep dive into the Ivy League trash heap and coming up with the pale desiccated carcass of John Kerry, the man whose chiseled face appears next to the entry for "mediocrity" in the American political dictionary.  Kerry is leading a parade of familiar faces, a hack pack if ever there were one.

Buyer's remorse, already.
Nearly one out five voters would change their vote for Biden.  The Democrats knew what they were doing when they pushed voters to vote early. [...] Turns out that was great for them, but a bad deal for the voters.  In fact, it was a sleight of hand comparable to three-card monte, to a lot of sad marks who gave up their right to an Election-Day vote, cast their ballot as told for Biden, and now can't get it back.  According to OAN One America News, a survey from the Media Research Institute found that 17% of Biden voters regretted their votes.  Some 45% said they had never heard of the Biden scandals, ranging from the sexual assault allegations from legislative staffer Tara Read, to the evidence of selling influence to China and other rogue actors found in the abandoned laptop of Biden's son Hunter.  In the OAN interview, MRC's Dan Gainor told OAN's John Hines that 9% of those Biden voters surveyed said they would have changed their votes based on the news of corruption allegations, which had been repressed on social media and ignored by most of the mainstream press.

Democrats fight over who should serve as Biden's Agriculture Secretary as influential party members push for black Congresswoman to be picked.  A fight is breaking out among Democrats over who Joe Biden should pick to be his Secretary of Agriculture.  The president-elect has yet to appoint the person who will head up the Agriculture Department, which oversees various agencies including the United States Forest Service, the United States Food Safety and Inspection Service, and the Food Stamp Program.  South Carolina Rep. James Clyburn — who is widely seen as playing a crucial role in Biden's Democratic primary victory — told The New York Times on Thursday that Biden should name Ohio Rep. Marcia Fudge to the powerful position.

Pre-selecting the race and gender of an employee before reviewing the candidates' qualifications is racism and sexism.  Some people call it "affirmative action," if it precludes white males, but it's still racism and sexism.

Trump Wants Biden to Prove His 80 Million Votes Aren't Fraudulent if He's to 'Enter the White House as President'.  President Trump decided to hit Twitter with a Black Friday surprise, saying that "Biden can only enter the White House as President" if he can prove that he didn't get there fraudulently:  [Tweet]  As is always the case with Trump's best trolling, the triggering effect on the libs is worth the price of admission.  What they're calling delusion, conservative Republicans are calling a spine.  There is no quit in this president.  We're almost four years into this and that fact is still a new thing for Republicans.  We're just barely getting used to it after decades of weak GOP leaders rolling over and playing dead whenever the Democrats and their media mouthpieces told them to.

Lucky Joe gets phone call from China President Xi Jinping.  Like clockwork yesterday [11/24/2020], one day after Biden unveiled his Definitely-Not-America-First foreign-policy and national-security team, China President Xi Jinping phoned to congratulate him.  Xi said he hoped "the two sides will uphold the spirit of ... win-win cooperation."  Oh yes, Biden knows all about "win-win cooperation" with China.  They win and then they win some more.  Biden was the Obama administration's point man for Beijing during the period when millions of American jobs were shipped to China.  It began with China's entry into the World Trade Organization in 2001.  That was the last time "win-win" was loaded with so much irony, when President Bill Clinton lauded the move as "a win-win result for both countries."  After that, the trade deficit exploded.  We couldn't compete with the low wages, and the AFL-CIO estimated US manufacturing wages dropped between 46 percent and 86 percent.

Joe Biden Tries to Quote Book in the Bible, It Goes Horribly Wrong.  Joe Biden was playing at being president today, giving a 'Thanksgiving message.'  But Joe Biden being Joe Biden meant that not only was he falsely assuming a role he didn't have, namely president, but that he also was going to just completely mess it up.  First, he told people it was their "patriotic duty" to "forego family traditions" for Thanksgiving because of the Wuhan coronavirus. [...] He's clearly reading off a teleprompter again and has absolutely no idea what he's even saying.  [Video clip]

Even if he's a phony Catholic who has never spoken the word psalmist before, or never opened the Bible just to look around, one would think that Mr. Biden would have rehearsed the speech in the presence of one of his writers.

Computer Repairman Who Threatened Biden's Electoral Prospects Goes Into Hiding.  The only person who burns for revenge more than a Democrat who just lost is a Democrat who just won.  The Dems are getting what they want, a Trump-free White House, and it makes them furious.  Now they're publicly yearning for vengeance against the computer repairman who almost cost them their victory.  And he did so by telling the truth, which they hate like poison.  Just weeks before the election, the owner of a computer repair shop near Joe Biden's home claimed to have a laptop full of incriminating evidence that Hunter Biden had abandoned 18 months ago.  The New York Post broke the story, which set off such a panic that Twitter suspended the centuries-old newspaper and blocked all links to the story.  Of course, this triggered the Streisand Effect, bringing even more attention to a story they were trying to suppress.

There's More Than One Way to Steal an Election.  The evidence is strong that the Democratic Party press swung this year's election to Biden by its selective non-coverage of critically important news stories that reflected well on President Trump or poorly on Biden.  The Media Research Center has conducted extensive polling in seven key swing states.  The MRC asked Biden voters whether they were aware of certain facts or news stories, and if they were not, whether awareness of those facts or issues would have caused them to change their vote away from Biden. [...] You might think that Democratic voters simply don't care about the facts.  But that isn't what respondents said in this survey.  MRC asked whether, if the respondent had known a particular fact, he would nevertheless have voted for Joe Biden, voted for President Trump, voted for a third-party candidate, or not voted at all.  It turns out that all of these under-reported stories had the potential to swing significant numbers of voters away from Joe Biden.

Poll: One In Six Biden Voters Would Have Changed Their Vote If They Had Known About Scandals Suppressed By Media.  A new report from the Media Research Center shows that the media's lack of coverage and big tech's suppression of certain issues and scandals surrounding Democratic Presidential Nominee Joe Biden could have cost President Donald Trump the election.  The survey results report that 17 percent of Biden voters would not have voted for the Biden-Harris presidential ticket if they had known about at least one of the eight news stories that were suppressed by big tech and mainstream media outlets.  "This is not happenstance.  This is not coincidence.  This is not oversight and this is not just a mistake," president and founder of Media Research Center Brent Bozell said at a press conference Tuesday.  "These were deliberate decisions that were made thousands of times, literally thousands of times, to either twist or to not cover it at all, which we found in this case."

FBI Buried Hunter Biden Laptop.  [Scroll down]  After the New York Post published damning excerpts from correspondence found on the laptop, the bureau needed to show it was in hot pursuit.  But it wasn't.  Otherwise, the FBI would have interviewed Bobulinski, whose name is on correspondence found on the laptop, long before last month's kabuki show.  So, if there was no real investigation, why did the U.S. Attorney's Office in Delaware, a state dominated by Joe Biden for nearly half a century, issue a grand jury subpoena for the laptop?  As grand jury material, it could be kept under wraps.  The FBI and other agencies have known about Hunter Biden's relationships with allegedly corrupt foreign entities for quite some time.  In 2015, State Department officials warned then Vice President Biden about Hunter taking a seat on the board of a Ukrainian energy company, Burisma, which was under various corruption investigations.  Nonetheless, Hunter continued to draw a monthly salary of more than $50,000 from a company whose owner was on Ukraine's most-wanted list.

The media are complicit in the fraud we see today.  On November 15, 2020, Ukraine announced that Biden is wanted in that country on Class A felony charges.  The former president, Viktor Poroshenko, is on trial for corruption and treason.  We know Joe Biden's role in this because he boasted about it.  There are also taped conversations in which Biden discusses using American money in a way that would end up protecting his son.  Ukrainians actually refer to our senate Democrats as Democorruptionists.  That's right.  A country we often add the qualifier "corrupt" to thinks we are a joke.  Think of this:  Vice President Biden concocted a scheme where he would perform certain favors with taxpayer money for a personal benefit.  Ukrainian investigators have traced the transfers of millions of dollars from Ukraine to the Biden family.  The American media completely ignore Joe Biden's role in this scheme.  Viktor Poroshenko is looking at life in prison, and the media have anointed Joe Biden as the American president — and it is Ukraine with the corruption problem?

Joe Biden, Hunter Biden, George Soros, Facing Indictment in Ukraine?  According to New York One News and SCE News, the criminal case involving Joe Biden's abuse of power with regard to Ukraine and the subsequent political favor hiring of his son, Hunter, by a large Ukrainian energy company is coming to a close.  In a Ukraine Federal Court, warrants have been issued for the arrests of both Hunter and Joe Biden with charges of corruption and conspiracy.  Interpol has been alerted and an arrest will take place should either set foot in Europe.  They have not yet requested extradition from the USA, not sure if extradition would even be granted.  A third warrant is also being issued and this one is a surprise, sources point to George Soros has also been named as a co-conspirator in the case for it turns out that Soros is a partner in the energy company.  This should come as little surprise though.  When business corruption is involved, Soros whose involvement in election fraud in the U.S. is currently under investigation.

Biden picks architect of DACA to lead DHS.  Presumptive President-elect Joseph R. Biden said Monday he will nominate Alejandro Mayorkas, the man who oversaw the creation of DACA during the Obama years, to be his Homeland Security secretary.  Mr. Mayorkas has extensive experience in the department, having served as head of the citizenship agency and then as deputy for the whole department, underneath then-Secretary Jeh Johnson.  While head of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services he oversaw the 2012 creation of DACA, the Obama-era program that has protected hundreds for illegal immigrant "Dreamers" from deportation and given them a chance to hold a job.

Report: Biden to Name Russia Hoaxer, CNN Analyst Tony Blinken Secretary of State.  Former Vice President Joe Biden is reportedly set to announce this week that Tony Blinken, who supported the idea of "Russia collusion," would be his Secretary of State. [...] Blinken, who served as deputy secretary of state and deputy national security advisor under President Barack Obama, has also been a New York Times opinion writer and a "global affairs analyst" for CNN.  In that capacity, he supported the "Russia collusion" hoax.

Do Trump-Supporters Live in an Alternate Universe?  [Scroll down]  The laptop belongs to Hunter Biden.  Russia has nothing at all to do with it.  There is a massive amount of information on the laptop demonstrating schemes to enrich the Biden family by selling influence.  Tony Bobulinski worked closely with the Bidens to set up some of the questionable transactions.  Tony met with Joe and said Joe was fully onboard with these business plans.  Joe got a percentage of the foreign money.  Hunter made deals with high-ranking Chinese communists, plus lucrative deals with several other countries.  Joe is thoroughly compromised.  The way that the MSM and all of social media worked to hide this story is shocking.

Parallel presidency:  So-called 'president-elect' Joe Biden muscles in on President Trump.  The votes haven't even been tallied in some places, let alone audited or recounted or certified, and already Joe Biden is running a parallel presidency. [...] but the broader picture is that Biden is holding a conference of governors.  That's with Biden, who holds no office, presiding as head of state.  And no, he's not telling them to stop the rioters trashing the blue states, that would take leadership.  He's undoubtedly making a play for his tax-and-spend agenda, promising federal bailouts to mismanaged spendaholic blue states, to be financed by productive well-managed red-states and their taxpayers.  The governors of course, are looking for their best piece of action, trying to get on Biden's good side, knowing that crony deals are a way of life for him.  Deals are being cut.  Worse still, they aren't subject to the usual Freedom of Information inquiries since they aren't being done on the government dime.

Rudy and Sidney's Krakentastic Spectacle, and What It Could Mean.  [Scroll down]  There are lots of elements to the case, but essentially it boils down to this: the Biden campaign, in league with nefarious actors both domestic and foreign who are invested for various reasons in replacing Donald Trump as the president of the United States, engaged in a rather brazen smash-and-grab of the 2020 presidential election.  No.  Not brazen.  That's not a correct description. Desperate is more accurate.  Because what was done in the counting of votes in the election on Nov. 3 and days following is best explained, as Giuliani suggested, as sloppiness derived from a frantic struggle to produce votes for Biden at Trump's expense in key states.  Initially it was thought that those states were six — Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan, Wisconsin, Arizona, and Nevada.  Now it appears New Mexico and Virginia might be added to the mix following investigations of irregularities there.

The Left's Utter Nonsense.  [Scroll down]  Furthermore, we're expected to believe that a basement-dwelling, muddle-minded plagiarist collected more real votes for president than a wildly popular (note his rallies), highly successful incumbent.  We're to believe that a man who didn't, nay, couldn't campaign, could amass more votes than any other presidential candidate before him.  Really?  A man who has accomplished nothing in almost a half-century of public office?  A man we know has enriched himself and his family by selling out America and her interests to enemy countries?  We're supposed to just go home and carry on as if nothing really important has happened?

'They want Kamala in there tomorrow': Limbaugh says Dems to dump Biden.  Joe Biden, if he becomes president, could be in danger from his own party, suggests talk-radio host Rush Limbaugh.  It's because the Democrats favored candidates from the far left during their primary but knew none of them could win the White House.  So they put an extremist on the ballot as vice president, Kamala Harris, and once Biden is in office, he's done, Limbaugh said.  "They want to get rid of him as soon as they can.  They have no intention of this guy serving a full four-year term," he said.

Reminder:  Joe Biden has no authority until at least January 20, 2021.
COVID 1984: Joe Biden Announces His Absurd Thanksgiving Recommendations for Americans.  With mayors and governors issuing edicts about Thanksgiving celebrations that are unlikely to be followed, it's good to see that the presumptive president-elect is getting on with it, too.  During the question-and-answer portion of a speech delivered Monday in Delaware ostensibly focused on the economy, Joe Biden said he would "suggest five people, maximum 10 people" who have previously quarantined attend Thanksgiving celebrations so "that we're able to be together next Thanksgiving, next Christmas."

Report Suggests Mainstream Media Silence On Hunter Biden Laptop Story Vital To Biden Success.  Internal data from the Biden campaign shows that bombshell stories relating to a laptop apparently owned by Hunter Biden made more noise online than the massive Hillary Clinton email scandal of 2016. However, Team Biden was spared scrutiny from the mainstream media, seemingly boosting him in the 2020 presidential election.  "According to Biden campaign metrics, online chatter about the Hunter Biden story during the election's last week was greater than it was around Hillary's emails during last month of '16," the Daily Beast's Sam Stein reported Monday [11/16/2020].  "The difference:  it never spilled over into mainstream outlets."

People who live in glass houses should not throw stones.
Biden claims he wants to avoid federal investigations into Trump for sake of unity:  Report.  Democratic nominee Joe Biden is not interested in launching federal investigations into President Donald Trump once he leaves office because he believes it will be too divisive for the country, according to sources who have spoken to him about it, NBC News reported.  The outlet, quoting five people supposedly familiar with the discussions, said the former vice president is pushing back against vindictive Democrats who seek investigations into President Trump, his policy decisions, and some members of his administration.  It's not clear what legal violations the president is alleged to have committed that would warrant investigations, presumably by a Biden Justice Department.

Jihadists Are Rooting for a Biden Presidency.  It should be of grave concern that America's avowed enemies are cheering on the possibility of a Biden presidency.  Thus, "Iraq's pro-Tehran factions have welcomed Joe Biden's election as US president[.]"  That such politicians who have called the U.S. "evil" and shout the phrase "death to America" would be pleased by a possible Biden win speaks volumes. [...] In truth, the Muslim Brotherhood is hoping that under a President Biden, the U.S. would remove the group from the list of terrorist organizations.  Yet "no US administration can afford to dismiss the warning bells sounded by Arabs in the wake of the Muslim Brotherhood's attempt to present itself as a peaceful group that seeks to bring freedom and democracy to the Arab world."  Here in America, anti-Semite activist Linda Sarsour has made her preference for Biden quite clear.

Look Who Biden Is Asking For Advice On How To Create Jobs.  If the business executives Joe Biden met with Monday [11/16/2020] are an indication of the kind of advice he's seeking out on the economy, the country is in for trouble.  At Monday's briefing, Biden was practically giddy about a meeting he'd had earlier in the day with CEOs at four big companies — Microsoft, The Gap, Target, and General Motors — along with five union bosses.  "It was really encouraging, quite frankly," he said, to get "business and labor agreeing on the way forward."  "I wish you could have all heard the conversation."  Why these companies?  Biden didn't say.  But if he wanted advice on how to grow the economy and create jobs, he picked a sorry lot to get it from.

What We Must Believe to Believe Biden Won.  The Democrats dismiss any mention of the innumerable irregularities that tainted the general election as little more than crackpot conspiracy theories.  This is a convenient way to avoid addressing serious questions raised by serious observers, but it will further undermine confidence in key institutions that form the foundation upon which the republic stands.  Public trust in government, media, and even science was already declining before Election Day.  This trend will dramatically accelerate if Americans don't get answers to questions such as the following:  Why would the voters deliver the Democrats a comprehensive down-ballot drubbing yet hand the White House to the worst presidential candidate in living memory?  The last time a Democrat "won" the presidency while his party sustained a double-digit loss in the House was in 1960, during an election tainted by probable vote fraud in Illinois and Texas.  Still, we're expected to believe that Joe Biden achieved the same feat in 2020 with no skulduggery?

Emboldened by Biden, the Lockdown Fascists Return for Round 3.  Joe Biden's election hasn't even been certified yet and he is already my least favorite American president ever.  When I wrote last week that Biden was going to soon make us all miss Barack Obama I was being sarcastic.  Now it appears that I may be Nostradamus reincarnated.  After Grandpa Gropes ran a campaign where he simply barked "Pandemic!" over and over like a trained seal, it's no surprise that he and his Democratic minions in various statehouses are already cranking up the COVID panic-porn alarms.  Our betters are now telling us that we should avoid friends and family and cancel Thanksgiving.  Of course, it's another "Rules for thee, but not for me" bit of COVID nonsense, as evidenced by the recent antics of California dictator Gavin Newsom.  We've seen nothing but hypocrisy from the tyrants who insist that the only way to make the 'rona go away is for the peasants to stay home and go broke while they go on about their business and pleasure as if nothing whatsoever were going on.

Joe Biden may be your least favorite president so far — but only because Harris hasn't been sworn in yet!

A Hunter Biden-linked firm's pursuit of Russian money.  A few months before Russian oligarch Elena Baturina wired $3.5 million in February 2014 to a Hunter Biden-linked firm, his business associates scrambled to secure U.S. bank approval because she was on a federal government "watch list" for financial transactions, according to never-before-revealed emails and documents.  The document trove may be viewed [elsewhere.]  The memos, obtained by Just the News, show Hunter Biden's primary business partner, Devon Archer, and business associates Jason Galanis and Bevan Cooney, began working in November 2013 to overcome regulatory and compliance issues so they could take the Russian billionaire's money in one of their companies, called Burnham.  Baturina had asked the men to set up a U.S. bank account for her as part of the transactions, the memos show.  "She's so rich she has Burnham money stuck in her sofa.  Good luck Archie," Galanis wrote Archer in late 2013 about the ongoing effort to lure her investment and get a bank account open for Baturina.

Joe Biden's Potemkin Presidency:  Will Socialist Soros And Other Extreme Leftists Call The Shots?  Joe Biden's big selling point to both the Democratic Party and the American people was that, in a crowd of candidates standing far left of center, he was the moderate choice.  Now, as he staffs a possible White House with far-left media re-treads and George Soros' socialist acolytes, we're seeing that his supposed moderation was just another of his endless lies.  No one should be surprised.  President Barack Obama played the moderate in his first campaign, then became the most far-left president in our history.  He, too, opened the White House doors to Soros-linked socialist apparatchiks.  Their inept policies led inevitably to economic stagnation and the worst foreign policy disasters in decades.

Grassley To DOJ: Hunter, James Biden's Actions [Possibly] 'Make Them Agents Of The Chinese Government'.  Iowa GOP Sen. Chuck Grassley, the chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, is going after Joe Biden and his family big time.  In a letter to Attorney General William Barr, Grassley stated, "... the actions by Hunter Biden and James Biden on behalf of CEFC, Ye Jianming, and other officers connected to CEFC, potentially make them agents of the Chinese government."  Grassley began the letter by stating that he had served "in both the Obama and Trump administrations, I have conducted oversight of the Department of Justice's (DOJ) lax and selective enforcement of the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA)."

Biden faces immense backlash and friction for the next four years, if he is sworn in at all.
Biden campaign reportedly worries inauguration could turn into Trump MAGA rally.  Some members of Joe Biden's campaign team are reportedly worried that Inauguration Day in Washington, D.C. might turn into a huge President Trump rally, similar to the raucous "Make America Great Again" events he held throughout the campaign.  In a Daily Beast piece headlined "Biden World Fears Trump Will Bring 'Weird S***' to Their Inauguration," the liberal website says Biden supporters, more worried about COVID-19 than Trump supporters, might not attend — but MAGA supporters just might fill that void.  "Inaugurals always require intricate planning.  This one will be a really delicate dance to have that element of accessibility without risk," Steve Kerrigan, who served as the CEO of the 2013 Presidential Inaugural Committee (PIC), told the Beast.  "I cannot see a President-elect Biden, like Trump, putting narcissism or ego ahead of the safety of people."

Catholic Pro-Life Leaders Denounce Bishops for Congratulating Joe Biden.  Judie Brown, the president of ALL [American Life League], the nation's oldest grassroots, Catholic pro-life organization, said in a statement this week:  ["]The USCCB has affirmed what many of us have suspected for many years, and that is that most Catholic bishops have no problem with a Catholic politician spitting at the face of Christ by supporting the vile murder of the preborn.  Joe Biden is such a man; he claims to be Catholic, yet he gives 100 percent support for abortion every day of the week and in every manner of brutality against the innocent.  The Catholic bishops have erred, and as a Catholic, I am ashamed of them.["]

Confirmed: Biden Cancer Initiative Spent on Salaries — and Little Else.  The New York Post confirmed Saturday [11/14/2020] what Breitbart News and others had reported earlier this year:  that the Biden Cancer Initiative, founded by former Vice President Joe Biden, spent millions on staff salaries but did little about cancer research.

This would have been nice to know in October, although Democrats wouldn't have cared.
Tax filings reveal Biden cancer charity spent millions on salaries, zero on research.  A cancer charity started by Joe Biden gave out no money to research, and spent most of its contributions on staff salaries, federal filings show.  The Biden Cancer Initiative was founded in 2017 by the former vice president and his wife Jill Biden to "develop and drive implementation of solutions to accelerate progress in cancer prevention, detection, diagnosis, research and care and to reduce disparities in cancer outcomes," according to its IRS mission statement.  But it gave out no grants in its first two years, and spent millions on the salaries of former Washington DC aides it hired.  The charity took in $4,809,619 in contributions in fiscal years 2017 and 2018, and spent $3,070,301 on payroll in those two years.  The group's president, Gregory Simon, raked in $429,850 in fiscal 2018 (July 1, 2018 to June 30, 2019), according to the charity's most recent federal tax filings.

Joe Biden and the Bunker Presidency.  This year's presidential election showed that slightly more than half of America no longer wants a president who speaks to them openly and often.  They don't want a chief executive who tweets, regularly takes contentious interviews, routinely answers questions from hostile reporters, and does freestyle stand-up at his boisterous rallies.  Instead, they want a fragile, cosseted figurehead — a museum piece — who gives few speeches (all shopworn and canned), avoids tough questions from the press, and utters nothing without a teleprompter.  They want T. S. Eliot's hollow man, a headpiece filled with straw.  They want a basement candidate who will be a bunker president.  They want Joe Biden.

Joe Biden Says Pope Francis Offered Him 'Blessings and Congratulations'.  The Biden-Harris Transition team announced Thursday that Mr. Biden had spoken by telephone with Pope Francis, who offered him "blessings and congratulations."  The press release does not specify who initiated the call, but only that "President-elect Joe Biden spoke this morning with His Holiness Pope Francis." Since, however, the pope as a rule does not call to congratulate people for political victories, it must be assumed that the Biden team made the call.

Biden Prepares To Impose Sweeping Green New Deal Measures On America.  Last Saturday [11/7/2020], [Joe] Biden was unanimously declared as the winner of the 2020 election by a crooked media that ran interference for him throughout the campaign and coordinated to censor a late story on his son Hunter's abandoned laptop.  Nevermind that not one state has certified their elections or the courts have had a chance to rule on multiple legal challenges over irregularities and other fakery, forces that are behind the geriatric gaffe machine are going full speed ahead with their plans.  One of their top priorities is the imposition of socialism upon unsuspecting Americans by using the Green New Deal to capitalize on climate change doomsday scenarios as an excuse to completely remake society which includes controlling how citizens will be allowed to live their lives.

Biden Said Two Months Ago He Would Not Declare Victory Until Election Was Independently Certified.  There are a lot of things Democrats, NeverTrumpers, and the mainstream media have said and done in the aftermath of the election that are just flat out rotten, as my RedState colleagues and I have previously documented.  Among the most rotten of all has been Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden going back on what he said in September about how and when he would declare victory.

Senator Grassley Questions DOJ About Chinese Influence Over Hunter and Jim Biden.  Yesterday Senator Chuck Grassley sent a letter [pdf below] to Attorney General Bill Barr pointing out the serious compromise amid the Biden family and their relationship with the Chinese communist government.  Within the letter Grassley outlines the revelations of payments from CEFC China Energy, an entity owned by the Chinese government. [...] It is stunning that we could face a possibility of the Biden family in a position of power while the demonstrable payments from China stare us in the face.

Meet Joe Biden's seventh grandchild Navy Joan Roberts — the two-year-old lovechild Hunter tried to deny he had with stripper.  Growing up behind a veil of secrecy, the adorable little girl who Hunter Biden didn't want to claim as his own is a happy two-year-old living in rural Arkansas with her mother and her mother's family, can reveal.  On Saturday [11/7/2020], Joe Biden invited six of his grandchildren on stage when he announced to the world that he had won the 2020 presidential election.  But the seventh was missing from the smiling ranks of America's next First Family:  Navy Joan Roberts, the two-year-old daughter Hunter fathered with stripper Lunden Roberts then shamefully denied was his.

Hostile Takeover:  Wall Street Assumes Command of Joe Biden Transition Team.  Wall Street and the biggest U.S. banks, after spending a fortune to unseat President Trump, are getting key spots in Democrat Joe Biden's transition team that he has devised before the presidential election is certified.  Detailed by the New York Times, Biden's list of transition team members includes former Wall Street employees and those with close ties to Wall Street.  Many of the big banks with links to Biden transition team members were major donors to the former vice president.

George Soros Looms Large Over Biden Transition.  Joe Biden's transition team includes several people affiliated with organizations bankrolled by the left-wing billionaire George Soros.  Biden's "Agency Review Teams," which include lists of individuals "responsible for understanding the operations" of each government agency, will prepare "President-elect Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris ... to hit the ground running on Day One."  Soros is well represented on those lists.  Sarah Cross, an advocacy director at Soros's Open Society Foundations, received a seat on Biden's State Department transition team.  Michael Pan, a special adviser in the executive office of the Open Society Foundations, will join the United States Mission to the United Nations team.  Diane Thompson, who is listed as "self-employed" and a member of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau team, is a current Leadership in Government Fellow at the Open Society Foundations.

The Left's Civility Claptrap.  Joe Biden's campaigns have rested on the most rancid racial politics.  In 2020, he routinely accused his opponent of racism and support for white supremacism, drawing on nothing but his own libelous twisting of Trump's words after the rioting in Charlottesville.  In 2012, Biden had accused Republicans of planning to put blacks "back in chains."  His venom came out also on non-racial matters.  He once called opponents of gay marriage the "dregs of society."  In the Senate, he habitually hurled dirty charges, becoming the father of Borking.  But now Biden's thoughts turn to civility.  He promises to lead us out of a "grim era of demonization."  Biden is not the first Democrat to peddle this claptrap.  Indeed, it is a standard hypocrisy of Democrats:  out of power, they extol incivility; once they regain power, they denounce it. [...] "Civility" to the Left is simply a tool of propaganda with which to secure docility from the people.  But liberals have never felt the slightest need to practice it themselves, much less adhere to any moral system that would require it.

Joe Biden, Candidate of Lies.  [Scroll down]  Unfortunately, Biden's willingness to use race as a cudgel to achieve political power has a long history.  For years, Biden huddled with segregationist Democrats when he thought it suited his Senate career.  Then, as Barack Obama's vice president, he switched sides to become a full-on racially obsessed agitator, constantly assailing our country as systemically racist.  In fact, Biden's tenure as vice president oversaw a marked deterioration in race relations in America, in no small part because he and his boss regularly inflamed racial division.  Polling tells the tale.  When Biden took office as vice president in 2008, fully 66 percent of Americans regarded race relations as good, according to New York Times/CBS News polling.  But by the time Biden left the White House eight years later, the popular assessment had flipped, with 69 percent of Americans reporting race relations as poor.  So much for Biden as a "healer."

No time for phony healing.  After liberal media operatives prematurely declared Biden the winner of election 2020 this weekend, Biden's handlers carefully trotted him out in front of the cameras to read a script that proclaimed:  "It's time to put away the harsh rhetoric, to lower the temperature, to see each other again, to listen to each other again."  "Listen"?  Biden's already hatching plans to crack down even harder to silence patriots and dissidents who share their ideas online.  Twitter, which ran censorious interference for Biden throughout the campaign, allows thousands of tweets by users wishing to "assassinate Trump," but deplatforms peaceful conservatives and independent investigators exposing voter fraud, COVID-19 hypocrisy and left-wing violence.

Calls For 'Unity' From Those Who Demonize Opponents As White Supremacists Are Deeply Unserious.  Former Vice President Joe Biden delivered a victory speech Saturday night calling for national unity, insisting the country to move past partisan divides to new heights.  "With the campaign over, it's time to put the anger and the harsh rhetoric behind us and come together as a nation," Biden said celebrating his media-declared victory.  "It's time for Americans to unite.  And to heal."  True to form, however, Biden cast no blame on the loudest voices within his own party or the Trump-deranged media vilifying the president and his supporters as white supremacist enemies of the state at every turn.  In truth, Democrats want Trump-supporting Republicans to heel, not heal, while punishing those billed as "complicit" in the president's supposedly authoritarian regime cutting taxes and opposing Democrats' draconian lockdowns.

The Editor says...
Tell the business owners who had their stores burned and looted in Seattle, Minneapolis, and Kenosha that it's time to heal, and see what they say.  Tell the cops that were blinded by laser pointers that it's time to heal.  The Biden voters rioting in the streets have caused permanent damage in many ways that can't be brushed off with "get over it, unite and heal" messages.

Joe Biden in September:  I will Not Declare Victory Until the Election Is Independently Certified.  During the first presidential debate between President Donald Trump and Joe Biden, Chris Wallace of Fox News asked Biden if he would "pledge not to declare victory until the election is independently certified," to which the former vice president answered, "yes."  "Will you urge your supporters to stay calm while the vote is counted, and will you pledge not to declare victory until the election is independently certified?" asked Wallace of Biden at the first presidential debate in Cleveland, Ohio.  "Yes," answered Biden.  [Video clip]

Low-level mob rule:
CNN Lists Republican Senators Who Have Not 'Acknowledged Biden Is President-Elect'.  Tuesday [11/10/2020] on CNN's "Right Now," host Brianna Keilar featured a list of Republican Senators who have not made public comments "acknowledged Joe Biden is president-elect."

Biden Plans To Create An Army Of 100,000 'Culturally Competent' Contact Tracers.  Despite what the media and Democrats claim, the election is not a done deal yet with several states still dragging out the process and multiple legal challenges being brought by President Trump and state officials to address irregularities that border on outright fraud.  But Biden is a Trojan horse who has nearly breached the city gates and the furious efforts are intensifying to finish the job by ordering Americans to accept their new leader and to surrender through pledging unity than speak out against the nullification of their votes.

Joe Biden's taking a bow for the COVID vaccine.  [Scroll down]  President Trump pointed out that Pfizer, which embraced a $2 billion incentive from the feds to buy vaccines, should they develop one, was part of the vast operation of Operation Warp Speed, cutting useless regulations and red tape on the government side, providing funds, ramping up industrial production, so that the private sector could find a way to destroy the coronavirus.  This was Trump's baby, Trump's unheralded response to COVID-19, the one thing he could do to stop an imported virus, and did.  Biden, though, was the one standing up there on the podium, offering his congratulations to Pfizer, and commanding everyone to go out and wear masks.  No thanks of course to President Trump.  The victory was all his and he was patting the participants on the back.

Biden Campaign Urges Federal Agency to Approve Official Transition of Power.  Americans should be outraged at the liberties Joe Biden and his media cronies have taken following the still-contested results of the 2020 presidential election.  The presumptive president-elect is making speeches and taking victory laps while President Donald Trump's team seeks to uncover all of the glitches and ghosts that may have accounted for Biden's sudden electoral advantage in key states.  Meanwhile, there is mounting pressure for the U.S. General Services Administration, the government body in charge of the transition to a new presidential administration, to release millions of dollars and other resources to the Biden/Harris campaign for their new administration.  Biden is urging the GSA to officially approve the transition of power despite the election still be contested and the Trump administration suing in several states.

The calls for unity are falling on deaf ears, at least for now.  We are now one week out from the general election on November 3.  The election is not settled. [...] Biden is going full steam ahead.  He declared victory and delivered an acceptance speech Saturday night to honking automobile horns and fireworks near his home in Delaware.  During his speech, he made a pitch for unity.  Joe Biden actually delivered the same message that Donald Trump delivered four years ago.  Both men promised to be the president of every American, whether someone voted for him or not.

Unity? Yes, We Will Give You Unity.  You want unity?  That's fair.  We will give you unity:
  [#1]   In unity with you, we will follow your example of the past four years and deny the legitimacy of the 2020 election for the next four years.
  [#2]   In unity with you, we will follow your example of the past four years and investigate the Biden family's every business dealing at home and abroad.
  [#3]   In unity with you, we will follow your example of the past four years and question Biden's mental fitness to hold office.
  [#4]   In unity with you, we will follow your example of the past four years and question Biden's physical fitness to hold office.
  [#5]   In unity with you, we will follow your example of the past four years and blame Biden for every person who dies from the coronavirus.
  [#6]   In unity with you, we will follow your example of the past four years and blame Biden personally for every Black person who is shot anywhere in America.

The list goes on, to point #16.  It is well worth reading.

Voter Fraud Plus Bait-and-Switch Equals Tyranny.  As their candidate for president of the United States, Democrats selected Joe Biden, 77, a 47-year Senate veteran and loser in 1988 and 2008 presidential bids.  In 2020, Biden says he's running for the Senate, doesn't know his location and claims 200 million Americans have died from Covid.  And so on.  Joe may be above ground, but to all but the willfully blind he is completely incapable of carrying out the duties of the presidency, the most difficult job in the world.  Democrats [...] wanted to get somebody else in the office.  That would be Kamala Harris, supposedly qualified as an intersectional "woman of color."  Harris is a favorite of the "composite character" president formerly known as Barry Soetoro, who called her the "best looking attorney general in the country."  That invites a look at the way Harris became attorney general of California, and its relevance to the current campaign.  Democrat queenmaker Willie Brown also thought Harris, 30 years his junior, was good looking.  In a daring act of poontronage, Brown set up Harris in lucrative sinecures and backed her runs for San Francisco district attorney and state attorney general in 2010.

Report: Yale professor to co-chair Biden's COVID task force.  A professor with the Yale School of Medicine will serve as a co-chair of President-elect Joe Biden's task force on the coronavirus, according to a report from CNN.  Marcella Nunez-Smith, associate professor of internal medicine, public health and management and founding director of the Equity Research and Innovation Center, will be among three co-chairs of the group, two sources reportedly told CNN.  Former Surgeon General Vivek Murthy and former Food and Drug Administration Commissioner David Kessler will also helm the group, CNN reported.

Dr. Marcella Nunez-Smith:  Racial discrimination could be the key reason for high mortality rates of COVID-19 among African Americans.  The COVID-19 has claimed over 190, 000 American lives.  There is increasing evidence that African Americans are being disproportionately hit hard by the virus.  Black people continue to experience the highest actual COVID-19 mortality rates nationwide — more than twice as high as the rate for Whites.  The new CDC data — made available after The New York Times sued the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention — reveals a clearer and more complete picture.

Reaction to the article above:
We're Saved!  Biden's COVID Science Team Will Have Intersectional Pokemon Points Galore.  In contrast, high COVID death rates among blacks couldn't possibly have anything to do with problems that blacks could actually do something about on their own initiative, like lose weight or like, as movie director Tyler Perry has suggested, get more Vitamin D during colder seasons.

Congratulations President Kamala.  The kindest thing we can say about Joe Biden is that he is a proven scatterbrain whose physical and cognitive daily life depends on his wife's vigilant handling of his word and foot.  She is forever present wherever he is: whispering to him his forgotten word, and showing him where podium and exit door is.  Simply, she is his guide-dog and theatrical standby coaching him from the wings.  And for all we know, Biden may also already be incontinent and needing adult diapers under his pajamas and Mrs. Biden here plays the role of personal diaper-changer too.  This is the pre-election status of our new president, Joe Biden.  But what of post-election?  How will our handicapped and dependent president manage complex state affairs and even more complex foreign policies for the next four years?  He is already 77 years of age and clearly his cognitive abilities will continue to naturally diminish with age, with no prospect whatsoever of their return to robust elasticity.

Rhodes: 'Foreign Leaders Already Having Phone Calls with Joe Biden,' Same Act for Which Michael Flynn Was Investigated.  Ben Rhodes, former deputy national security adviser during the Obama administration, claimed on Monday [11/9/2020] that "foreign leaders are already having phone calls with Joe Biden."  Gen. Mike Flynn, the first national security adviser for President Donald Trump, was investigated under an arcane law called the Logan Act for having precisely such communications with foreign leaders before Trump was sworn in.  Former Vice President Joe Biden has been accused of suggesting the Logan Act as a pretext for investigating Flynn, although other Obama administration officials claim the idea did not come from Biden.

Less than half in new poll believe Biden is legitimate winner of election; a third say Trump won.  More than a third of registered voters believe Donald Trump legitimately won the presidential election, according to a new Just the News Daily Poll with Scott Rasmussen.  Less than half of all respondents — 49% — believe Joe Biden legitimately won the race, while 34% said they believe Trump won the election, and 16% said they are not sure who really won.  Of Republican respondents, 77% said they think Trump is the legitimate winner, while just 12% of Republicans believe Biden is the legitimate winner.  About a quarter of independent voters also said they believe Trump won.  Among Democrats, 87% think that Biden is the winner.  Rasmussen noted that the survey was conducted from Thursday night [11/5/2020] until Saturday early afternoon.

Biden transition team not ruling out legal action if Trump admin doesn't cooperate.  The Biden team will consider taking legal action in transitioning from Trump's administration as long as the president continues to refuse to cooperate after the election.  A transition official told Fox News that several options are on the table to move forward with Biden's transfer to power with Trump not living up to the law.

The Editor says...
The election is being contested.  There is no need for "transition official[s]" if there is to be no transition.  At this point, no state has certified Joe Biden as the winner of the election.

Mexico, Brazil, Russia and China hold off on congratulating Joe Biden.  A number of countries, including Russia and China, are holding off congratulating Joe Biden on his 2020 presidential victory because President Trump has not conceded and continues to pursue legal challenges surrounding the vote.  Russian President Vladimir Putin will remain silent about the results, the Kremlin said on Monday [11/9/2020].  "We think it appropriate to wait for the official vote count," Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters.  Peskov said there are differences between 2020 and 2016, when Putin congratulated Trump on his victory over Hillary Clinton.  "You can see that there are certain legal procedures that have been announced by the current president.  That is why the situations are different and we therefore think it appropriate to wait for an official announcement," he said.  Beijing is also waiting until the legal issues are resolved.

Newly appointed Biden coronavirus task force member accused of profiting off of lockdowns he advocated for.  Presumptive President-elect Joe Biden named Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel to his coronavirus task force.  Emaunel has been accused of profiting off lockdowns he has advocated for earlier this year.  Emanuel serves as a consultant for COVID-19 RECoVERY Consulting, which works with businesses on reopening and operating during the coronavirus pandemic by navigating laws regarding the virus.  The work earned him the ire of former New York Times reporter Alex Berenson in September, who said Emanuel was profiting off the "lockdown that he's pushing."  "Zeke is doing good by doing well and doing well by doing good.  He has his own consulting firm where he consults with people for profit to make money from giving them recommendations about how to get around and get past the lockdown advice that he's pushing.  The lockdown that he's pushing," Berenson told Fox News's Tucker Carlson in September.

Biden Prepares His Virus Response Which Looks Awfully... Familiar.  Over the weekend, I reviewed Joe Biden's victory speech and pointed out his claim that he was going to roll up his sleeves and get to work on getting the pandemic "under control."  What was missing from his remarks was any hint about what he was going to do to accomplish this.  I somehow doubt Uncle Joe reads Hot Air, but he came out yesterday with an attempt to answer the questions I raised.  He set forth a few of the steps he planned to take in terms of the virus, at least in general terms, along with naming some people he planned to assign to his pandemic "working group."  Let's see if we can spot the brilliant new ideas he will be deploying to save us all from the plague.

GSA Responds to Biden Campaign: 'Ascertainment Has Not yet Been Made' on Power Transfer.  As the campaign for Joe Biden attempts to push the General Services Administration (GSA) to approve a transfer of power, the agency said that it hasn't made a final assessment of the situation.  "An ascertainment has not yet been made.  GSA and its administrator will continue to abide by, and fulfill, all requirements under the law," a spokesperson with the GSA told The Epoch Times on Nov. 9.  The agency said that GSA administrator Emily Murphy will only initiate the transition when a "clear winner is clear, based on the process laid out in the Constitution."  "The administrator's ascertainment is done for the purposes of making services provided by the [Presidential Transition Act] available," the spokesperson said.

Keep Fighting in the Courts, and Start Fighting the Libertarian Party.  Through it all, the media ran interference for Biden and the Democrats.  Biden is a lifelong racist, with the most remarkable of blatantly racist comments reflecting racist beliefs.  Yet he was portrayed as an opponent of "systemic racism" — itself a bogus fraud in a country where all races have an equal opportunity to succeed and flourish.  He is a public liar and has lied brazenly for half a century, even about his own biography.  Whole swaths of his family are engaged in massive financial corruption.  Yet the media protected him, buried the news of his and their evil, and portrayed him as a smiling Uncle Joe.  He was able to hide for so long in his basement because he had CNN, MSNBC, ABC, NBC, CBS, PBS, the New York Times, and the Washington Post doing his campaigning for him.

Class Conflict Will Cripple the Democrats.  If Biden were to prevail and be sworn in as President on January 20, 2021, it will be solely due to his party executing the greatest fraud in American political history, along with considerable help.  The Democrats' co-conspirators in the Ruling Class provide financial and media collaboration, while the radical American left, with their organizing ability and willingness to unabashedly break election laws to justify the ends, provide the muscle.  [Tweet]  Saturday night, after the media proclaimed that Biden was elected, demonstrators in the nation's capital chanted "Burn it down!"  Joe Biden would not have any national mandate nor the support of the bulk of the citizenry.  Due to his cognitive decline and inability to viscerally connect with the people, he will not be able to unite the nation behind him on any issue.  Thus, he would be, in effect, the prisoner of and a foil for those responsible for carrying him over the finish line:  The Ruling Class and the American left[.]

If Elected, Biden Will Wield 'Phone and Pen' with Flurry of Executive Orders.  The far-left Washington Post reports that if Joe Biden wins the presidential election, he intends to bring back the Obama era phone and pen approach with a flurry of executive orders.  "President-elect Joe Biden is planning to quickly sign a series of executive orders after being sworn into office on Jan. 20, immediately forecasting that the country's politics have shifted and that his presidency will be guided by radically different priorities," the far-left Post reports, and does so inaccurately by referring to Joe Biden is "president-elect."  Joe Biden is not president-elect.  Only the corporate media have said he won the election, which is still going through a series of recounts and lawsuits.  You are not "president-elect" until the electoral college meets and confirms your victory.

The Editor says...
The executive orders signed on Joe Biden's first day as president — if that happens — will be written by somebody else (lobbyists, staffers, and party bosses) and then pushed in front of the senile president for his signature.  Five minutes later, Joe Biden won't be able to tell anyone what he just signed.  Thus, Mr. Biden will be a mere appliance, to be used by unelected members of the White House staff.  One after another.  Immediately after assuming his position in the Oval Office.  One might reasonably ask, "What's the rush?"

Photo of Malia Obama's Credit Card Next to What Appears to be Cocaine Released Amid Hunter Biden Laptop Scandal.  Amid the continuing info-dump from Hunter Biden's notorious laptop, GNews has released what appears to be photos of former President Barack Obama's daughter, Malia Obama's credit card with what is being claimed to be lines of cocaine.  The images are said to have originated from Hunter Biden's laptop, and clearly show Malia Obama's name on the credit card, but others claim these photos were not connected to the laptop dump and from a separate incident in 2019 where supposed hackers leaked the picture of the credit card.

Media Declares Joe Biden Winner of 2020 Election.  The strategy of using of mail-in ballots to structurally steal the 2020 election predictably contained an inevitable series of events to support it.  The media's preemptive declaration of a Biden victory is one cascading domino in that very predictable sequence.  The media effort is to build a wave narrative strong and heavy enough to block any sunlight upon the fraud perpetrated by regional election officials.  The statistical improbability of the U.S. election outcome are glaring; there are hundreds of examples that just don't make sense.  Thus the need for the media narrative becomes more important.  Perhaps the most unnerving aspect to this election fraud is knowing that Joe Biden is merely a puppet for a group of political and deep state interests; the Milli Vanilli candidate with a giggling high-school-minded VP.

Media Calls the Race For Joe Biden But Is it Really Over?  The television networks have called the 2020 presidential election, announcing Joe Biden as the winner in Pennsylvania — giving him, in theory, enough electoral college votes to become the next president.  But is it over?  Election officials have yet to call the win, and the Trump campaign has several legal challenges in play.  Networks rushed to the airwaves to announce that Biden had taken the 20 electoral votes in PA less than 15 minutes before Trump's legal team was to hold a press conference in Philadelphia, PA.  Trump campaign attorneys represented by Rudy Giuliani spoke about irregularities in the voting and ballot-counting process.  Leftist media outlets immediately launched sensationalized headlines such as "You're Fired" but the president vowed in a statement that the fight is not yet over.

MSM's declarations do NOT mean Joe Biden will be president.  Mainstream media outlets are calling the election for Joe Biden.  To millions of Americans, this seems to be "game over" for the Trump campaign.  They're mainstream media, after all.  They'd know, right?  Actually, yes, they would know.  And the fact that they DO know the irregularities associated with the voting and are still willing to "call it" tells us one thing without a doubt.  They weren't just shilling for Joe Biden.  They were and are directly involved with this attempted coup against a lawfully elected President of the United States.  The fact that they're now spreading the lie is meaningless.

Joe Biden Wins U.S. Presidency After Bitter Contest With Trump.  Joseph Robinette Biden Jr. has defeated Donald Trump to become the 46th U.S. president, unseating the incumbent with a pledge to unify and mend a nation reeling from a worsening pandemic, faltering economy and deep political divisions.  Biden's victory came after the Associated Press, CNN and NBC showed him winning Pennsylvania and Nevada and gaining more than the 270 Electoral College votes needed to secure the presidency.

The Editor says...
Biden has not been officially certified as the winner of the presidential election in any state.  The news media declared him the winner on a Saturday morning, knowing that no lawsuits will be decided or even considered before Monday.  By then, the news media will have repeated the lie (that Biden won) so many times, it will have become "common knowledge."

Text of statement from President Donald Trump.  Text of a statement from President Donald Trump on the election result:  "We all know why Joe Biden is rushing to falsely pose as the winner, and why his media allies are trying so hard to help him:  they don't want the truth to be exposed.  The simple fact is this election is far from over.  Joe Biden has not been certified as the winner of any states, let alone any of the highly contested states headed for mandatory recounts, or states where our campaign has valid and legitimate legal challenges that could determine the ultimate victor.  In Pennsylvania, for example, our legal observers were not permitted meaningful access to watch the counting process.  Legal votes decide who is president, not the news media.  Beginning Monday [11/9/2020], our campaign will start prosecuting our case in court to ensure election laws are fully upheld and the rightful winner is seated.  The American People are entitled to an honest election:  that means counting all legal ballots, and not counting any illegal ballots. [...]"

Trump Campaign Refuses to Concede as Networks Call Election for Joe Biden.  The Trump campaign refused to concede defeat in the presidential race on Saturday [11/7/2020] after networks projected a win for Joe Biden.  The Democratic nominee is projected to win at least 290 electoral votes, with victories predicted in Pennsylvania and Nevada, according to the Associated Press.

The Editor says...
TV networks do not determine the winner of a presidential race.  The Electoral College does that.  TV networks can issue projections, and "declare" the winner, but that's not official.

Joe Biden will become the oldest president in American history, a title previously held by Ronald Reagan.  Joe Biden has defeated Donald Trump and will become the oldest president in American history, a title previously held by Ronald Reagan.  President-elect Biden, who will turn 78 on Nov. 20, was born in 1942 during World War II.  The oldest sitting president in U.S. history was Ronald Reagan, who was 77 when he left office in 1989.

Biden calls for unity, healing after capturing the presidency.  President-elect Joe Biden called on a deeply divided United States to come together and "heal" on Saturday [11/7/2020] moments after he was declared the winner of the presidential election.  In a statement, Biden said he was "honored and humbled by the trust the American people have placed in" him and his running mate, Vice President-elect Kamala Harris.

The Editor says...
Mr. Biden was "declared the winner of the presidential election" by the news media.  That does not mean that he officially won the election.  Trump has not conceded, recounts are pending, lawsuits abound, and any number of things may happen before (and during) the Electoral College vote.

Media call election for Biden.  With tens of thousands of outstanding mail-in ballots waiting to be counted, Joe Biden led the presidential race in Pennsylvania by 34,243 votes on Saturday.  Mailed ballots have overwhelmingly favored the former vice president in the state, so most major news outlets assumed Biden's lead would widen as the count finished, giving him the state's 20 Electoral College votes and enough to cross the 270-vote threshold to win the presidency.  Is it really over?  The Trump campaign has lawsuits pending over the vote in Pennsylvania and could request recounts in individual counties.  As of Saturday, Biden's margin in the state hovered at .51 percent — just above the .5 percent that would trigger an automatic recount under state law.

Joe Biden Claims 'Mandate' But Stops Short of Declaring Victory.  Joe Biden appeared late Friday evening and claimed he received a "mandate" from American voters, but he stopped short of declaring victory.  "We don't have a final declaration of victory yet," he said, and argued the numbers tell "a clear and convincing story:  We're going to win this race."  Biden touted his new-found leads in Georgia and Pennsylvania.  He said he is winning Arizona, a first for a Democrat in 24 years.  Similarly, he is the first Democrat to claim victory in Georgia in 28 years.  He said he is on his way to "over 300 Electoral College votes."

Communist Chinese State Media Gushes Over Joe Biden After Election.  Communist Chinese State media is currently sharing their opinion on the 2020 election and they couldn't be happier with how well former Vice President Joe Biden is doing.  According to editor at China's state-run Global Times Hu Xijin, former Vice President Joe Biden is a super star and is very admired by Chinese internet users see him as a "tenacious man."

Sleepy Campaign Strategy Mystery Solved.  How could their candidate win when he basically refused to campaign?  We now know the answer.  Biden didn't really campaign because he — or at least his handlers — knew the fix was in.  They knew that compliant polls would cook the numbers to show that Biden was 10, 15, or even 17 points ahead nationally and in all the battleground states even though he was more or less tied or even behind.  The psychological, which means the political effect of that, was to insinuate an element of unreality into the whole campaign and to present the public, and the pundits who were there to spoonfeed them, with a false narrative about the performance and therefore the prospects of the two candidates.  The committee fielding Biden also knew that the media was almost totally on board with a Biden candidacy.  This was clear during the campaign when an overwhelming majority of media coverage was both hostile to Trump and almost comically careful about Biden.

Thoughts on Where We Stand Now.  For Republicans, the future is bright.  2022 shapes up as a great year.  Beyond the advantage that the out-party always enjoys in a new president's first midterms, the Democrats will have to come to grips with the fact that they nominated and elected a man who is not able, either physically or mentally, to discharge the duties of his office.  What will Biden's White House calendar look like?  8:00 breakfast, 9:00 lid?  By November 2022, Biden may not even be president.  Republicans should be able to take the House and expand their lead in the Senate, where the landscape will be much more favorable. [...] The Democratic Party will be in a state of civil war for the next two years, with its bitterly opposed factions vying for influence in an administration ostensibly run by a man who has little idea what is going on.

Biden launches presidential transition website as he nears 270 electoral votes.  Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden on Wednesday [11/4/2020] launched a transition website as he neared the 270 electoral votes needed to defeat President Trump.  The site [...] says "Biden-Harris Transition" against a solid blue background.  "The American people will determine who will serve as the next President of the United States.  Votes are still being counted in several states around the country," an unsigned message on the site says.

How the Bidens Made Off With Millions in Chinese Cash.  The Senate's report on Hunter Biden's activities released several months ago, which was spun by the New York Times as having shown "no evidence of wrongdoing," nevertheless had several important gaps in the business activities of the troubled son of the former vice president.  Draft legal documents and 2017 bank records obtained by The American Conservative show at least $5 million was transferred to Hunter and Jim Biden from companies associated with the Chinese conglomerate CEFC, with millions coming after the company had come under legal scrutiny both in the United States and China.  CEFC official Patrick Ho was arrested in November 2017 and charged by the Southern District of New York with corruption, and was convicted last year.  In addition, on or about March 1, 2018, CEFC Chairmen Ye Jianming was arrested in China for economic crimes and hasn't been seen since.  CEFC assets in China were seized by Chinese state agencies.  In the U.S., major beneficiaries were Hunter and Jim Biden.

Recap and overview:
The Hunter Biden Corruption Scandal Is a Reckoning for the Legacy Media.  Americans are likely familiar with the basic narrative of the Hunter Biden-Burisma scandal because it featured prominently in the House Democrats' impeachment against Trump.  While Joe Biden served as the Obama administration's point person on Ukraine, his son Hunter — who had no experience in fossil fuels — was named to the board of a notoriously corrupt Ukrainian gas company, Burisma.  The VP's son reportedly raked in $83,000 each month for the gig.  Later, his father pressured the president of Ukraine to fire a prosecutor who says he was investigating Burisma at the time.  The new emails from Hunter Biden's laptop appear to demonstrate that Joe Biden met with a Burisma executive months before he pressured Ukraine to fire the prosecutor.  While Joe Biden was the Obama point person on China, Hunter Biden flew to the Middle Kingdom and entered into many lucrative deals with the Chinese Communist Party and Chinese state-owned businesses.  Hunter's deals arguably endangered American military and nuclear secrets, and the Obama administration went soft on China at the time.

Disposable Joe.  [Scroll down]  It highlights the fact that Joe Biden has been living on the mere idea of plausibility for most of his career, never most so than in this election cycle.  Even before he went into politics he has been stealing ideas, wholesale chunks of speeches and written words.  He has become uber wealthy on a senate salary that has never gone higher than $175,000 a year.  His immediate family has accumulated fabulous wealth through government contracts and no show jobs with organizations in countries Joe has had responsibility for in his posts and senator and vice president.  He has skated by with all of that because of the fog of plausibility conferred by his position, political correctness and his connections to the power brokers of the Democrat party.  Nobody in a position to do anything about it, it seems, has been interested in truly evaluating the actuality of his plausibility.  If this is all very insubstantial, it is even more mysterious that he is now so close to becoming the what would plausibly be the first temporary president of the United States.  Finally, in the twilight of his life, dispoability has become his defining attribute.

Joe Biden Is a Bald-Faced, Lying Slimeball.  [Scroll down]  Morally, we're at an inflection point as well.  Because while Joe Biden ambles about the country, now that political realities have forced him from his basement playroom claiming we're in a "battle for the soul of America," the limited truth in what he's saying cuts opposite to what he means.  Joe Biden is the moral reprobate in this race, not Donald Trump.  His manifest corruption aside, Joe Biden is the most aggressively mendacious, insultingly dishonest and shamelessly contemptuous liar in modern American political history.  Biden's campaign has told so many lies one often can't quite understand what the point of the lying is.

Joe confuses his two granddaughters and then introduces one of them as his dead son.  Joe Biden made an embarrassing gaffe during his final pit stop on election day as he introduced his granddaughter Finnegan as his late son Beau Biden, then called her by her cousin Natalie's name, before finally correctly introducing Natalie as Beau's daughter to a crowd of supporters in Philadelphia.  'This is my son, Beau Biden who a lot of you helped elect to the Senate in Delaware,' he said as he put his arm around Finnegan's shoulder.  He then continued with the slip-up by calling her Natalie and saying she is Beau's daughter.  Natalie, 16, is Beau's daughter while Finnegan, 20, is actually the daughter of Biden's other son Hunter.

In Election Day flubs, Joe Biden says son Beau was senator, mixes up granddaughters.  Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden on Tuesday made a pair of Election Day gaffes during a rare in-person campaign stop in Philadelphia, saying his late son Beau Biden was a senator and mixing up his granddaughters' names.  Just hours before potentially becoming the nation's oldest-ever president-elect, Biden spoke about his family to a crowd of supporters in swing state Pennsylvania's largest city.  "This is my son, Beau Biden, who a lot of you helped elect to the Senate in Delaware, this is my granddaughter Natalie — no wait, I've got the wrong one.  This is Natalie, this is Beau's daughter," Biden said as he introduced his granddaughters.

Report: If Media Declare Biden Winner, He Intends to 'Address Nation' as 'New Leader'.  Former Vice President Joe Biden will "address the nation as its new leader, even if President Trump continues to fight in court" if the media declare him the mathematical winner on Election Day.  "We're not really concerned about what Donald Trump says," Biden campaign manager Jen O'Malley Dillon told reporters Monday.  "We're going to use our data, our understanding of where this is headed, and make sure that the vice president is addressing the American people."

Biden's last-minute Hail Mary on gun control.  For months now, disappointed liberals have been scratching their heads and bemoaning one question hanging over the 2020 elections.  Why aren't Democrats talking about gun control?  It was all the rage last year, but now you don't hear a peep about if from almost any of their candidates and it wasn't even mentioned at the Democratic National Convention.  The reasons seemed fairly obvious to me and it looked as if the issue had been put to rest for this cycle.  But then, only this weekend, Democratic candidate Joe Biden broke the mold and ended the silence.  His Twitter account chimed in, seemingly out of nowhere, with a promise to infringe on your Second Amendment rights if he's sworn in as the 46th president.

Trump Campaign Airs an Amazing Biden Montage During Final Wisconsin Rally.  Kenosha, Wisconsin.  It's a town that made headlines earlier this year when riots broke out there following the police shooting of Jacob Blake. [...] The city was one of President Donald Trump's final campaign stops on the eve of Election Day, in hopes of making voters there realize they deserve better.  One of the ways his campaign drew a contrast between the president's leadership and the leadership of Joe Biden included a video montage of the former vice president.  Their video did a phenomenal job calling into question Biden's cognitive abilities, something that many have speculated over the course of this election cycle.  Just in the first third of 2020, Biden had 18 major gaffes where he forgot important information, like what office he's running for, who his wife is and what the Preamble of the Declaration of Independence states.  Since then, he's had plenty more, some more serious than others.  Remember:  Biden told Charlamagne tha God "You ain't black" if you vote for President Trump.  That, in itself, shows how much Democrats take for granted the black vote.  That's part of the reason so many rappers have stepped out in support of President Trump.

What to Make of DOJ Announcement That Hunter Biden Is Under Investigation — Just Money Laundering or More?  Joe Biden is so hopelessly compromised that if he happens to win the election on Tuesday, when he's confronted with what the intelligence community knows about his overseas entanglements, he'll be forced to decline to take the oath of office.  He'll step aside in favor of Kamala Harris, and the Democrat party will have their first female minority President — which has always been the goal — and not a septuagenarian recycled white male politician with a room temperature IQ and a troubling history of overt racism.  The "support" that Joe Biden thinks he has in the party will suddenly evaporate and he'll be standing alone in an empty room he thought was full of supporters — courtesy of Barack Obama.

Biden Reminds Americans He Plans to Shred the Second Amendment.  Amid the pandemic, violence, rioting, looting, and the "defund the police" movement, gun ownership in America has soared, with some estimates saying there are 5 million first-time gun owners so far this year.  That could mean a new and "formidable" voting bloc has formed.  "From now on, we expect millions of new gun owners to pay closer attention to candidates, and reject those who would trample on their Second Amendment rights," Alan Gottlieb, chairman of the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms, said in a statement this summer.  It's curious then that just days before the election, Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden made abundantly clear that he plans to trample the Second Amendment if elected.

If Joe Biden is dragged over the finish line, Democrats will quickly drop him.  For the media establishment that spent the last year and a half resolutely ignoring Biden's long history of lying, bad judgment and allowing close relatives to sell his name to questionable foreign entities, not to mention his creeptastic behavior around women and little girls, President Biden presents a couple of problems.  One:  Biden was a senator starting when Nixon was still president and is well-liked by that institution.  It's said that Biden is even pals with Mitch McConnell, and though the press can forgive Uncle Joe's history of being palsy-walsy with fellow Democrat and onetime Exalted Cyclops of the Ku Klux Klan Robert Byrd, it can't abide the idea of Biden working with a guy who shepherded Amy Coney Barrett onto the Supreme Court.

Sleepy Joe Biden Invites Anti-Fracking Lady Gaga to Final 'Drive In' Rally in Pennsylvania and It's a Total Flop.  Sleepy and creepy Joe Biden invited Pop star Lady Gaga to his final 'drive in' rally held in Pennsylvania but Lady Gaga is anti-fracking.  It's as if Biden is trying to lose the race.

Biden Family Corruption Does Matter.  The conventional wisdom — on both right and left, among political strategists in both parties — is that voters care much more about the economy and COVID-19.  That's correct.  They do, and the polls show it.  But that doesn't mean the scandals are irrelevant.  They matter politically for several reasons, all of them bad for Joe Biden.  They imply the following:
  •   Biden is just another grifting politician who got rich in office;
  •   Uncle Joe's persona as average, lower-middle class guy is just a cover story;
  •   His self-enrichment makes him the "Washington Swamp" incarnate, no different from all the other politicians turned lobbyists; and
  •   The media is so crooked it won't honestly tell the public about these problems, lest they vote the wrong way.

Senior Retired CIA Officer:  The Laptop Is Real And So Is The Corruption It Lays Bare.  On October 19, 2020, a group of fifty former "intelligence officers" signed on to a letter branding the New York Post's story about Hunter Biden's laptop as having all the hallmarks of "Russian disinformation."  The letter was carefully caveated, no doubt out of necessity because otherwise many of the signatories would not have agreed to put their names on the document. [...] To my knowledge, none of the fifty individuals who signed the letter in question has seen the contents of Hunter's laptop.  I have.  I have had unfettered access to it for days and continue to do so.  Here is my take.  There is no question that the material on the hard drive I have reviewed belongs to Hunter Biden.  It is filled with emails, documents, text messages, and images that cover a span of many years.  All of these have the associated metadata.  Most of the emails are to known individuals with known email accounts.  Anyone who has ever done even a cursory forensic examination of a laptop seized from a terrorist safe house or taken from a hostile intelligence officer would not believe for a second that all of this information could somehow be fabricated.  Any attempt to do so would be detected in almost no time once the laptop was put under review.  As noted above, what is on the hard drive is not a few emails.  It is the entire contents of Hunter Biden's laptop containing data compiled over years.

Democrats are masking Biden's frailty.  [Scroll down]  After Biden had shouted his way through a short teleprompter speech, Obama came back onstage, perhaps to escort him off, because Biden did not seem to know where he was.  Obama mimed an elbow pump with his former VP to signal they should leave the stage and then quietly whispered to him, after which it dawned on Biden he'd forgotten his mask, not for the first time.  When your entire campaign is about mask-shaming Trump supporters, it's not a forgivable lapse.  Poor Biden looked like a chastened schoolboy as he fumbled through his folder and all his pockets looking for that pesky piece of cloth.  He walked back to the lectern and searched, to no avail, before fumbling through his pockets again.  Finally, he found the mask in his left trouser pocket, held it aloft sheepishly at Obama, and placed it on his face.  But then he paused and looked in seeming confusion at the microphone lying on the lectern where he'd left it.  He picked it up and held it briefly to his masked face before laying it down again and rejoining Obama.

The Bidens: A Delaware mafia.  [Scroll down]  Hunter was a principal in pay-to-play on a global scale.  Recent electronic and documented evidence confirms years of scuttlebutt that suggested that Hunter Biden, and Uncle Jim, were trading and profiting on the name and office of the "big guy."  Throughout, Joe claims he knew nothing of any family pay-to-play hustles in Oman, Luxembourg, Romania, Kazakhstan, Ukraine, Russia, Guatemala, and China.  The ignorance defense is an instant replay of Clinton family tactics; deny, deny, deny, and when denials are no longer plausible, depend on Deep State Democrat Party Beltway hacks to cover or come to the rescue. [...] Withal, the Biden exposé is, by any metric, a day late and a billion dollars short — at best a pyrrhic victory for critics.  The Justice Department and the FBI have had the goods on Biden for some time, yet official Washington is still mute and inert.  Inertia at justice is a symptom of a much larger problem:  institutionalized federal double standards.  A Republican might be indicted by an ambiguous phone call while Democrats, like the Clintons and Bidens, get a pass on obvious felonies.

Evidence of Biden Payments from China Support Tony Bobulinski and Show the Bidens Made Millions Swindling America.  The MSM, Democrats and the Biden Campaign are complaining that the Tony Bobulinski story is a lie.  They want Americans to believe that Hunter and Joe Biden are men of character and Bobulinski is the man lacking integrity.  Unfortunately for this corrupt group, we have evidence that proves Bobulinski right.

Court File Shows Joe Biden Listed as Possible Witness With Son in Fraud Case.  A federal judge named Joe Biden as a possible "witness" along with his son Hunter in a criminal fraud case last year that ended in the convictions of two of Hunter's business partners, according to little-noticed court documents.  The Democratic presidential candidate's appearance on a witness list casts new doubt on his claims he knew nothing about his son's shady business dealings.  Hunter Biden blamed one of his convicted partners — Devon Archer — for his father's name appearing on a list of potential witnesses in a juror questionnaire in the case, which was filed Jan. 11, 2019.  In a 47-minute recording recovered from his abandoned laptop, an agitated Hunter can be heard grousing about calls he's been getting from his father, who apparently was upset with the developments as he prepared to launch his campaign for the White House.

He's got one foot in the nursing home already:
Barack Obama had to call Joe Biden three times before he finally emerged at Michigan rally, then had to remind him to put his mask back on and help guide him off the stage.  'Sleepy' Joe Biden was caught napping twice during a rally in Michigan on Saturday, missing his cue to appear on stage and then forgetting his mask as he walked off it.  The 77-year-old was speaking at a rally in Flint alongside Barack Obama when he suffered the 'senior moments', just the latest in a series of gaffes that have dogged his presidential run and raised questions over his mental capacity.  The first came as Obama had just finished warming up for his old Vice President, and tried to welcome him to the stage by shouting: 'My friend, the next President of the United State of America, Joe Biden!'  But Biden was nowhere to be seen, prompting Obama to shout for him again.

Biden Will Impose Highest Capital Gains Tax Rate Since Jimmy Carter in 1977.  Joe Biden wants to impose the highest capital gains tax rate since the Jimmy Carter era known for its economic stagnation.  Biden wants to take the current capital gains tax rate of 20 percent and double it to 39.6 percent.  That's the highest rate since 1977, when the highest possible capital gains rate was 39.875 percent.

Eight hard questions for the Democrats.  A malleable, mediocre, now-senile, angry hack politician with decades of non-accomplishment and with a history of personal and family corruption.  A record of personal nastiness and lying and fantasy stories, of personal subservience to special interests (Delaware's banks) and exponential enrichment of his family through obviously corrupt multimillion dollar bribes from China, Ukraine, and Russia.  Biden is just a temporary front man.

Summarizing Joe Biden.  Biden will be 78 this month.  For more than a year he has been exhibiting a loss of mental acuity necessary to performing the job of president.  At least twice in the last week he's been unable to form comprehensible sentences.  Just a few days ago, in a stump speech apparently talking about Iran, Biden said, "I'll lead an effective strategy to mobilize Truaninonashufodopressure."  He apparently meant "true international pressure," but couldn't manage to get the words out.  A vote for Biden is a vote for Kamala Harris ousting him in 2021 under the 25th Harris is the most radically liberal member of the Senate.

'Joe Biden is a pathological liar'.  [Scroll down]  President Trump may be a pugnacious man with many flaws that he doesn't even care to hide, but Joe Biden is a proven, habitual, unrepentant fraud and a pathological liar of the highest order.  Civil rights activist Shaun King says this.  "Since the early 1970s, Joe Biden has been a serial liar ..."  Mr. King goes on to explain.  "In 1987, when Joe Biden was running for president for the very first time, his campaign got swallowed up in a swarm of lies that [he] told about himself all over the country.  First, Biden was caught plagiarizing a famous speech from, then, Britsh Labor Pary Leader Neil Kinnock — including parts of the speech that came straight from Kinnock's personal life that were not true for Biden.  "Then, he plagiarized yet another speech from the late Robert Kennedy and another from JFK and another from Hubert Humphrey ... Soon, it was discovered that Biden had not just plagiarized those four speeches, but had lied about academic awards [that he never earned], lied about scholarships [that he never received], and lied about his ranking in law school [stating he graduated in the top half of his class when in fact he finished 76th out of 85]."

Biden Invents Yet Another New Word, To Join 'Trunalimunumaprzure'.  Here's Joe telling people that he doesn't need them to help him get elected, that he needs them once he gets elected.  [Video clip]  Then he came up with another new word, "Barack and I think it's a right for people to have badakathcare."  [Video clip]

Joe Biden Says Americans Have a Right to 'Badakathcare'.  Former Vice President Joe Biden suffered yet another brain freeze Saturday [10/31/2020], proclaiming he and former President Barack Obama believe Americans have a right to "badakathcare" during a rally in Flint, Michigan.

Joe Biden's silence on Hunter's emails speaks volumes.  Ed Koch never missed an opportunity to tell his side of a story.  When a newspaper or television report said something about him he saw as wrong or unfair, the late New York mayor invariably fired off a letter of complaint.  The habit was so pronounced that I once asked him why he bothered, especially when the issue was minor.  His answer:  If you don't object, your silence is assumed to be agreement.  Attention, Joe Biden.  This is why your silence in the face of serious allegations of corruption is highly suspicious.  It makes you look guilty.  If you are innocent, why don't you say so?

National security nightmare of Hunter Biden's abandoned laptop.  The son of the man expected by many to be America's next President abandoned a laptop containing a treasure trove of top-secret material, including his father's private emails and mobile phone numbers, The Mail on Sunday can reveal.  In an astonishing lapse, Hunter Biden chose to protect his MacBook Pro computer — crammed with what an IT expert last night described as a 'national security nightmare' and 'classic blackmail material' — with a single, simple password:  Hunter02.  Remarkably, the 50-year-old businessman and self-confessed drug addict took the machine to a back-street IT store in Delaware in April 2019 to get it repaired — yet never returned to collect it.

Biden's Plausible Deniability Isn't Plausible.  [Scroll down]  It's up to you to decide if this financial arrangement was wrong or not, but let's see what Joe Biden himself said about the arrangement around the same time of his first denial.  "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.  Period.  Period.  End of story[.]"  So, his son did nothing wrong, but if he's president, he won't allow his son to do the same thing that he just said wasn't wrong.  I mean... if it wasn't wrong when he was vice president, why wouldn't he allow it if he were to be president?

Biden: 'Nothing to' Hunter Biden Laptop Story, 'My Son's an Honorable Man'.  During an interview with Iowa's KCRG on Friday, 2020 Democratic presidential nominee former Vice President Joe Biden stated that "there's nothing to any" of the "smear" stories about his son, Hunter's laptop and "my son's an honorable man."  KCRG Anchor and Managing Editor Beth Malicki asked, "So, what about the Americans who really, today, only want me to ask you about Hunter Biden's laptop, how are you going to get them to see that you are fighting for them, when they're so dead set against you?"  Biden responded, "By the way, there's nothing to any of that, nothing to any of that.  It's all a smear.  Every major outfit, every serious investigator has pointed out that this is a smear.  This is classic Trump.  We have four days left, and all of a sudden, there's a laptop. [...]"

The Editor says...
The laptop was known to the FBI almost a year ago, not just four days, and the contents have been shown to be authentic.  There is no reason to ask Joe Biden any questions, except to show that all his answers are untrue.

Report: FBI Opened Money Laundering Investigation into Hunter Biden and His Associates.  A Justice Department official confirmed Thursday [10/29/2020] that the FBI opened a criminal investigation into Hunter Biden and his business associates focused on money-laundering, and that it remains "open and active," Sinclair investigative reporter James Rosen reported on Twitter.  The FBI has had possession of Hunter Biden's laptop since December of 2019.  A recently leaked audio recording allegedly from Hunter Biden's laptop features the younger Biden discussing in a phone call his business involvement with a "[...] spy chief of China, and how both he and his father Joe Biden have been named as witnesses in a Southern District of New York criminal case.

Hunter Biden's Laptop Is "National Security Nightmare" With Personal Cell Numbers for Clintons, Obama Admin Officials, More.  The Daily Mail on Sunday morning [11/1/2020] (UK time) published additional details of what is contained on Hunter Biden's "National Security Nightmare" laptop, and statements from forensic experts vouching for its authenticity.  The laptop was first reported on by the New York Post, and almost immediately Twitter and Facebook worked to scrub the story from its platforms and to cast doubt upon its authenticity.  In the Daily Mail report, experts say that the material on the laptop wasn't encrypted or protected by even basic two-factor authentication, and was only secured by the password "Hunter 02."

The Editor says...
You can bet someone has scolded Hunter about his weak password by now, and encouraged him to change it.  So now it's probably "Hunter 03."

Feds reportedly seized second Hunter Biden laptop in February.  A second laptop belonging to Hunter Biden was taken by the feds back in February.  The computer was found in the Massachusetts offices of celebrity psychiatrist Dr. Keith Ablow during a raid and seized by Drug Enforcement Administration agents, according to a new report from NBC.  Ablow's medical license was suspended after he was accused of sexually exploiting patients and other professional misconduct.  He has not been charged with a crime and has denied the allegations.  Hunter Biden has not been the target of the search or the investigation and his lawyer ultimately got the laptop back, the network reported.  It's unclear what was on the machine or why it would have been in Ablow's offices.

CNN Claims Hunter Biden "Burisma Deal" Stinks; Story On ABC News Confronting Hunter Biden Resurfaces.  Now that the dam has broken, more MSM "journalists" are jumping on the Hunter Biden story, including CNN's Jake Tapper, who acknowledged on Saturday that Hunter Biden's relationship with Burisma — initiated just weeks after his father became the top US diplomat responsible for purging corruption in Ukraine — "stinks"[.]  [Video clip]  CNN followed that up with something even more surprising:  An opinion piece arguing that Trump does deserve a second term.

Obama officials were 'bothered' by Hunter Biden Burisma job: book.  President Obama's White House was "bothered" by Hunter Biden's ties to the Ukrainian energy company Burisma and Obama officials found Hunter's presence of the company board of directors while his father was vice president "unseemly," according to a new book.  The revelations were first published by New Yorker writer Evan Osnos in "Joe Biden:  The Life, the Run, and What Matters Now," which hit bookstores earlier this month, the Daily Mail reported.  "In the Spring of 2014 at the same time Biden was playing a central role in overseeing US policy in Ukraine, Hunter joined the board of Burisma, one of Ukraine's largest natural gas producers," Osnos writes.  The situation, however, was allowed to persist by the administration even as "distance was becoming harder to maintain" between the two Bidens.  Obama veterans continue to insist Hunter's business ties had no impact on US foreign policy.

How the Democrats Plan to Steal the 2020 Election.  As President Donald Trump tirelessly barnstorms the country, firing up voters from all walks of life at increasingly massive rallies that epitomize political Americana, Democrat Joe Biden is staggering around the political stage, desperately hoping to run out the clock and avoid any of the exploding controversy around his treasonous secret business dealings with the communist Chinese, among other appalling revelations.  Biden's campaign communications team — also known as the entire corporate "mainstream" media and all major social media and information platforms — are scurrying about crazily in an unprecedented suppression and censorship rampage to ensure that the growing body of authenticated evidence of Joe Biden's active complicity in his son Hunter's influence pedaling in Ukraine, China and Kazakhstan receives zero coverage, effectively bamboozling the American electorate.

The Nightmare Scenario of Biden-Harris and the Ascendancy of Kamala.  Kamala Harris is a radical with anti-America positions who will be within a hair's breadth of the Oval Office should Joe Biden win the presidency.  It's not just because Kamala has had her eye on the top slot, which she does.  It's not just because there are legitimate questions about Biden's cognitive state, which there are.  It's because the Biden Family Scandal may well be the most expedient means by which Harris' eye on the Oval Office comes to fruition.  The Biden Family Scandal is monumental, which explains why the media and Big Tech moved quickly and aggressively to censor it.  There's mounting evidence that the Biden family made millions of dollars from deals with foreign entities (China, Russia, the Ukraine for starters).

"America is dead" — Joe Biden actually said this at his Iowa rally.  Joe Biden actually told his audience today in Iowa that "America is dead" because of COVID-19:  [Video clip]  Wow.  Biden really knows how to inspire voters to come out to the polls.

Biden Pledges to 'Collaborate' With CCP in Chinese-Language Newspaper.  Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden promised a more collaborative approach to China in an op-ed published in a Chinese-language newspaper whose editors frequently attended junkets organized by the Chinese government.  Biden published an op-ed in the World Journal, a U.S. newspaper widely read by the Chinese-American community, on October 22.  World Journal, which is owned by a Taiwanese news conglomerate, historically had an anti-CCP tilt but has become open to Beijing in recent years.  The newspaper's editors have attended annual conferences hosted by the Chinese government and reportedly complied with a demand from the Chinese consulate to scrub an advertisement about the Falun Gong, an oppressed religious movement.

A Collusion Tale:  China and the Bidens.  Understand what's going on here:  The media-Democrat complex is warning you, on the basis of no evidence, that if you don't close your eyes to the explosive revelations from Hunter Biden's computers, you will be abetting a Russian intelligence operation; yet it has become increasingly obvious that this is because, if you open your eyes, you may find out that the Bidens were selling themselves to an actual Chinese intelligence operation.  Among the more amazing revelations in the Biden corruption scandal that the media-Democrat complex is blocking voters from seeing is this:  The corrupt Chinese businessmen with whom the Bidens were colluding not only had a record of buying political influence, not only were known to have high-level ties to the Chinese Communist Party and the regime, but also were clandestine agents of China — at least, that's what the FBI and Justice Department seem to have told the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court.

Hunter E-mails Request 'Formal Meetings With Dad' To Secure Billion-Dollar Deals.  The National Pulse has identified emails from Hunter Biden's hard drive appearing to reveal him and his business partners coordinating introductions to then-Vice President Joe Biden to solidify a deal involving billion-dollar bonds.  An email thread entitled "Engagement" from June 2011 reveals a Hunter Biden business associate — Sean Conlon — telling the former Veep's son: "we need to get these guys to an event or something where they get to just formally meet your Dad.  For follow on they can talk to Chief of Staff."

Joe Biden's Mind Goes Berserk, Says He's Going to 'Mobilize Trunalimunumaprzure'.  Joe Biden's mental acuity has become a hot topic as we approach the election day.  There were signs of degradation as early as last year, with the former VP flying off the handle at voters and forgetting where he was.  Things have only escalated this year, to the point where there's a new clip of his mind melting almost every day.  To the extent that they aren't coming out every day is mostly due to him calling lids on his campaign frequently as he hides in the basement.  Biden did come out today though, as he's obviously feeling the heat of President Trump's late barnstorming of the swing states.  That's when this happened.  [Video clip]

Joe Biden's Hand in Corruption, Subversion and Crime in Guatemala.  [Scroll down]  According to Peter Schweizer's new book Profiles in Corruption, Joe Biden met with the President of Costa Rica in 2009 and a few months later news broke of a "new multilateral partnership, 'to reform real estate in Latin America.'" Biden's brother, Frank, envisioned a huge development project with "thousands of homes, a world-class golf course, casinos, and an anti-aging center," in the Costa Rican jungle.  To support the project's energy needs, the Costa Rica National Power and Light Company would build the Guanacaste Solar Park, the largest solar farm in the nation — with Frank's company Sun Fund Americas as a partner, even though Frank had no experience in the energy field.  The U.S. government provided a $6.5 million loan for the project, and $47.5 [million] for another Sun Fund solar project in Jamaica.  Given the Biden family's other pay-to-play schemes in Russia, China, Kazakhstan, the Ukraine, and who knows where else, it would seem reasonable that Biden might expect something in return for pushing Baxter.  In fact, with Biden, it would be surprising if there were not some quid pro quo.  Guatemala is now on the cusp of becoming a Communist state thanks to Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and their minions.

Report: There's Another Hunter Biden Laptop in the Feds' Custody.  Over the last few weeks, conservative media has zeroed in on a laptop Hunter Biden left at a repair store in Wilmington, Delaware last year.  Both the Department of Justice and the FBI concluded that the laptop does, indeed, belong to Hunter.  But now it looks as though there's another laptop that belonged to Hunter.  And it's currently in the Drug Enforcement Agency's (DEA) possession, The Washington Examiner reported.  The laptop was allegedly taken during a search warrant that was executed against former celebrity psychiatrist, Keith Ablow, in Massachusetts.  Ablow is accused of "professional misconduct," NBC News reported.

Another Hunter Biden laptop taken into custody during DEA raid:  Report.  Another laptop tied to Hunter Biden was reportedly obtained by the Drug Enforcement Administration earlier this year.  Sources told NBC News that the device belonging to the 50-year-old son of former Vice President Joe Biden, who is now a presidential candidate, was taken into custody by the DEA in February while executing a search warrant in the Massachusetts office of a psychiatrist who was accused of professional misconduct.

Biden's Laptop Problem.  [Scroll down]  First there is the media, which used to be thought of a fourth estate bringing another level of checks and balances to government.  For the first two hundred years of American history, no one doubted or questioned the fact that the media was a necessary institution to protect and ensure the integrity of the American democratic republic by informing voters of vital information — like corruption — bearing on candidates for public office, with the Presidency clearly being the most important office.  Now we have the spectacle of the mainstream media not only ignoring a record of political payoffs documented in Hunter Biden's verified correspondence found on his computer's hard drive — corroborated by two former business associates — but also a media blackout on the recently released Senate Intelligence Committee report that contains confirmation by the U.S. Treasury Department of a $3.5 million wire transfer from the wife of the former mayor of Moscow, Elena Baturina, to Rosemont Seneca Partners, a firm Hunter Biden cofounded with Christopher Heinz (stepson of Secretary of State John Kerry) and Devon Archer (who currently awaits sentencing from a securities fraud conviction).

Biden Pledges to Gut Religious Freedom Protections, Saying They Give 'Hate' a 'Safe Harbor'.  Joe Biden made no bones about it:  If he wins the presidential election, he will gut religious freedom protections that allow faith-based homeless shelters, charities, and small business owners to act according to their consciences.  Specifically, he will shove LGBT ideology down the throats of religious Americans in the name of fighting "discrimination."  On Wednesday [10/28/2020], the Democratic nominee told Philadelphia Gay News that President Donald Trump has given "hate" a "safe harbor" by protecting religious freedom and enabling what Biden condemned as "discrimination."

Chris Wallace says he 'never believed' that Joe Biden did not speak about Hunter's business activity.  Fox News Sunday anchor Chris Wallace during an interview on the Brian Kilmeade radio show said that he "never believed" Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden's claim that he never spoke to his son Hunter Biden about Hunter's business activities.  Former Hunter Biden associate Tony Bobulinski has alleged that Joe Biden discussed Hunter's business dealings:  "I've heard Joe Biden say that he's never discussed business with Hunter:  That is false," Bobulinski said while delivering a statement before the media last week.  Wallace noted that Tony Bobulinski's claims run counter to Joe Biden's.  "I can tell you I know what my kids are up to and if they were up to business dealings in Beijing or Ukraine it would've come up at some point," Wallace said.

'It's Not Going Away'; Tucker Fires Back at 'ProfessionalClass' Ignoring Biden Corruption.  On Thursday night, Fox News Channel host Tucker Carlson continued to reiterate the mounting evidence of corruption by the Biden family, two days after his interview with Tony Bobulinski and two days into the "complete media blackout" that raises questions about how we can "maintain a democratic system when reality itself has been banned."  Carlson said that, "until recently, no one debated" whether the Biden family was selling access based on their family name, but "since Joe Biden received the Democratic nomination," "anyone in the media has claimed otherwise" with the Bobulinski blackout being the latest.

What problems did Joe Biden solve during his decades in government?  The "60 Minutes" interviews of the presidential and vice-presidential candidates last Sunday were more revealing for questions not asked and for sidestepping than for what inquiring minds really want to know prior to Election Day.  First, there was the presumption that government has all the answers to contemporary problems.  There was nothing said about liberty, personal responsibility, or accountability for one's actions.  The presumption among Democrats is that no one can do anything without government and if they succeed independent of Washington they will be penalized with higher taxes and more regulations to discourage initiative and risk-taking.

Joe Biden's character.  [Scroll down]  Biden launched his campaign by falsely accusing Trump of having praised the white nationalists in Charlottesville, Va., as "very fine people."  He has compared Trump to the Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels.  Biden has repeatedly lied about the man who got into the tragic accident that killed his late wife — falsely claiming that the driver "drank his lunch" when he was not drunk during the accident.  Biden has bragged about the historic smear campaign against Supreme Court nominee Robert Bork.  The attacks Biden helped lead turned the word "Bork" into a verb meaning to publicly vilify someone to destroy his or her reputation utterly.  Biden bragged about defaming Bork, claiming that this act defended Roe v. Wade (1973).  It also poisoned America's public discourse for a generation.  The Democrat has also grown increasingly radical on the issue of abortion.  While he long supported the Hyde Amendment, which protects pro-life Americans from having their tax dollars directly support abortion, he now supports taxpayer funding for abortion.  Not only does this ostensible Roman Catholic support legal abortion — apparently with few restrictions — but he also wants taxpayers to foot the bill, and he would force the Little Sisters of the Poor to pay for abortifacient contraceptives.  This kind of egregious support for the killing of unborn babies is arguably also a character issue.

Evidence of Joe Biden Corruption Just Keeps Piling Up, and the Media Refuses to Cover It.  On Wednesday, Fox News host Tucker Carlson condemned the legacy media for attempting to bury the bombshell story of Tony Bobulinski, Hunter Biden's former business partner who has testified that Democratic nominee Joe Biden was involved in his family's influence-peddling operations in China, Ukraine, and elsewhere.  More and more sources have confirmed parts of Bobulinski's story — most recently a Senate committee — but many media outlets have refused to cover it.  "Bobulinski told a remarkable story.  Joe Biden — who once again could be [elected] president of the United States next week — was planning business deals with America's most formidable global opponent.  And when he was caught doing it, Joe Biden lied.  And then he went further, the slandered an innocent man as a traitor to his own country," Carlson explained.  He lamented that "no one in America's vast media landscape has pressed Joe Biden" for his excuse to smear Bobulinski.

NY Post's 'Smoking Gun' Hunter Biden Email 100% Authentic, Forensic Analysis Concludes.  An email Hunter Biden received in April 2015 from a Burisma executive discussing an introduction to then-Vice President Joe Biden, which lies at the heart of a New York Post investigation, is unquestionably authentic, a cybersecurity expert told the Daily Caller News Foundation on Thursday [10/29/2020].  The DCNF obtained a full copy of Hunter Biden's alleged laptop from former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani on Wednesday.  The DCNF provided Robert Graham, the founder of the cybersecurity firm Errata Security, with a copy of the email and its metadata for forensic analysis.  Graham, who has been cited as a cybersecurity expert in The Washington Post, the Associated Press, Wired, Engadget and other news and technology outlets, told the DCNF that he used a cryptographic signature found in the email's metadata to validate that Vadym Pozharsky, an advisor to Burisma's board of directors, emailed Hunter Biden on April 17, 2015.

Joe Biden Announces He Will Lead an Effective Strategy to Mobilize 'Trunalimunumaprzure'.  Former Vice President Joe Biden has the internet collectively scratching their heads after announcing that he will "lead an effective strategy to mobilize trunalimunumaprzure."  The hilarious gaffe came during a campaign stop earlier this week, but began making the social media rounds on Friday afternoon [10/30/2020].  [Video clip]

The Editor says...
It sounds like some kind of Chinese dog whistle.  It probably means, "Don't call me right now, I'm in trouble."

Hunter's 'Smoking Gun' Email Implicating Joe Biden Just Blew Up.  The Daily Caller News Foundation reports that a cybersecurity expert has authenticated the email that implicates then-Vice President Joe Biden in his son's shady business dealings in Ukraine.  Rudy Giuliani, a former New York mayor and former federal prosecutor, gave the DCNF a copy of the contents of Hunter Biden's laptop.  The news website then gave the founder of Errata Security, Robert Graham, a copy of the so-called "smoking gun" email and all the metadata associated with it.  Errata is the same company used by The Washington Post, Wired, and other publications.

Joe Biden Runs from Reporters on Friday — Refuses to Discuss Family Financial Scandals and Perversion.  Joe Biden and Democrats are hoping they can run out the clock.  Joe Biden refuses to acknowledge his family's corruption scandals and perversion.  The Biden family was accused of numerous financial crimes by a former associate Tony Bobulinski earlier this week. [...] And the lapdog media refuses to corner the Democrat candidate with ANY questions that may embarrass him or expose him.  They are faithful party members.  On Friday Joe Biden approached reporters before his small campaign stops later today.  But then Joe Biden turned and fled from the media.

Strange behavior:
Obama-Biden Michigan Rallies Closed to the Public, Locations Being Kept Secret.  Democrat presidential nominee former Vice President Joe Biden and his ex-boss former President Barack Obama are scheduled to hold two joint-appearance rallies in Flint and Detroit, Michigan on Saturday.  However the public is not invited and the locations of the drive-in rallies have not been disclosed.

The Editor says...
[#1] How will Mr. Biden draw a crowd at a secret location?  [#2] When has a presidential candidate ever done this before?  [#3] Why is it necessary to keep the rally location secret?  Because the Trump supporters will crash the event and outnumber the Biden supporters ten-to-one!

Email Emerges Showing Democrat Rep. Ro Khanna Vouches For Biden Whistleblower Tony Bobulinski.  Rep. Ro Khanna (D-CA) vouched for the credibility of Hunter Biden's former business partner Tony Bobulinski, who has alleged that former Vice President Joe Biden was intimately involved in the shady business dealings of his son, despite his claims of ignorance.

How Serious Is The FBI's Biden Inc. Investigation?  Almost certainly very serious.  In the Indian tribe fraud case in which two Hunter Biden associates were convicted (Devon Archer's conviction was very recently reinstated on appeal), a lot of evidence regarding these key Biden Inc. players was gathered.  One is now cooperating from prison.  Next question:  What will Devon Archer do?  Obviously what they have to offer to the government, their bargaining chips, all have to do with Biden Inc.  And the Biden Inc. case is open.  Ongoing.  But they've had to wait for the hoped for cooperation, working the documentary trail of evidence while they wait.  There's another indicator, and it's a significant one. [...]

FBI Investigating Hunter Biden for Money Laundering:  Report.  The FBI opened an investigation into Hunter Biden and associates in 2019 on suspicion of money laundering, a Justice Department official told Sinclair Broadcasting.  The criminal investigation is ongoing, the DOJ official said.  The revelation comes after Tony Bobulinski, a former business partner of Hunter Biden, came forward with a trove of documents regarding the Biden family's dealings with now-defunct Chinese energy firm CEFC.  While Joe Biden has denied that he has ever spoken with Hunter regarding the latter's overseas business dealings, Bobulinski claims the former vice president is lying.

Hunter Biden Has Been Under Federal Investigation for Money Laundering Since 2019.  How long can the media ignore this story? [...] Sorry, you may not like it.  I know you hate the timing, liberal media, but Joe Biden, his son Hunter, and his brother Jim might all be dirty.  The Biden camp has yet to refute the scores of emails from Hunter Biden that weave a sordid and wide-reaching web of corruption.  You already know about Hunter's Burisma gig in Ukraine, where he was getting $50k/month to reportedly sell access to top Obama officials. [...] With the China deal, which looks like another corrupt venture, that arrangement has been further fleshed out by whistleblower Tony Bobulinski, who gave the FBI all records and devices related to these alleged shady deals with CEFC China Energy, which has ties to the government.  This deal was first hashed out when Joe was VP, the deal sought to give Joe, identified as "big guy" in these emails, a 10 percent equity stake, and Bobulinski straight-up has said that a) the Bidens are compromised, b) Joe knew full well what his son was doing.  He was in on it.

FBI conducting criminal investigation into Hunter Biden and associates days ahead of 2020 election:  Report.  The FBI reportedly has an active criminal investigation into Hunter Biden, the son of Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, and his associates.  James Rosen, a reporter with the Sinclair Broadcast Group, tweeted on Thursday, less than a week until Election Day, that the bureau opened the inquiry into allegations of money laundering in 2019. [...] The elder Biden, a former vice president, has denied having any involvement in foreign business ventures with his family and claimed he had no awareness of his son's pursuits.  However, neither Joe Biden nor his son have denied the authenticity of the computer materials, and a former business partner of Hunter Biden, Tony Bobulinski, claims Joe Biden was involved with his son's business dealings in China, and documents back up his claims.

Yes, [the] Media Are Rigging [the] Election Against Half The Country.  Here's How.  [Scroll down]  The story was sourced to a laptop computer allegedly left by Hunter at a Wilmington computer repair store.  Big Tech moved immediately to squash the blockbuster story on both Twitter and Facebook.  Twitter has banned the New York Post from tweeting and Facebook publicly announced they were suppressing the story, pending journalistic fact checks.  It's been more than two weeks since Facebook announced it was suppressing the story pending fact checks.  It has not shared who it tasked with the fact checks, and the only journalistic checks on the information have confirmed the story.  One of the recipients of an email found on the laptop confirmed it was real, on the record.  Government officials said it was not Russian disinformation.  No information has come to light to suggest it was Russian disinformation.  And last night, the key email in question was verified as legitimate by a cyber expert who was given access to the metadata for the email.  Other media outlets participated in the coordinated effort to squash the story, either by ignoring it completely or by claiming it wasn't a big deal.

Hunter Biden Has a PornHub Account Where He Uploaded His Personal Porn — Including with Family Member.  The Biden Family wants America to believe that they are the typical hard working American family, but nothing could be further from the truth.  Joe Biden said his son Hunter had done "nothing but good things his whole life" per the Daily Mail in a report on Valentine's day earlier this year: [...] Additional information uncovered this past week shows a different story.  On Monday [10/26/2020] it was uncovered that VP Biden and his wife colluded to suppress Hunter's actions with a certain minor.  On Tuesday we uncovered information showing how Hunter put his family at risk for Russian Blackmail after participating in seedy actions in West Hollywood with at least one Russian woman.  On Wednesday we reported that Hunter took pictures exposing himself in the presence of a minor.

Joe Biden's Campaign Schedule Contradicts Public Polls.  If you believe the polls, Joe Biden has a commanding lead nationally and is beating Trump in the battleground states.  For sure, he's headed to an easy victory, right?  Trump supporters say, "Don't believe the polls," and pollsters are convinced that after their embarrassing failure in 2016 they've got it right this time.  Okay, well, then why is Joe Biden going to Minnesota on Friday [10/30/2020]?  A Republican hasn't won the state since 1972, and yet, four days before the election, the Biden campaign, which has enough money on hand to work at expanding the map for Democrats, is coming to what should be safe territory for them.

Trump Team Tells Off Mitchell:  Biden & Media 'Colluded' to Exploit COVID.  Appearing on MSNBC Thursday afternoon [10/29/2020], Trump campaign communications director Tim Murtaugh told off anchor Andrea Mitchell as he exposed how the Biden campaign and the leftist media "colluded" to exploit the coronavirus pandemic and turn it into a "political weapon" against the President.  To Mitchell's utter contempt, Murtaugh also called out Biden's "anti-vaxxer rhetoric" and the press sowing doubt about COVID-19 treatments.  "We are inches away from a vaccine in record time.  Meanwhile, you have Joe Biden on the other side using this anti-vaxxer rhetoric, scaring people away from taking the vaccine, and then the media happily trumpeting the polls that say that people are afraid of the vaccine," Murtaugh hammered.  He emphasized how irresponsible the rhetoric was:  "Joe Biden, a candidate for President, is warning people that it could be dangerous, that's reckless."

Joe Biden's Last Minute Schedule Change Shows He's Much Less Confident than the Media Purports.  We are now in the final stretch of the campaign and even Joe Biden is leaving the basement for the last big push.  He's recently spent time in Pennsylvania, a key state that may decide the entire election.  But it's where he's going next that signals something important about where his campaign actually sees this race.  Biden will be heading to Minnesota tomorrow, a state he's supposedly got in the bag, and the decision to go there was apparently made at the last minute. [...] That Biden is rushing to Minnesota at the final moment is evidence that his campaign sees Trump rushing through the same holes he took advantage of in 2016.  Whether that will actually happen is anyone's guess, but there's obviously a palpable concern that it's a very real possibility.

Report:  All of the Bobulinski material reviewed by Congress so far has been verified.  The Senate committee tasked with verifying materials submitted to Congress by former Hunter Biden business associate Tony Bobulinski has found all of the material reviewed so far to be legitimate.  Bobulinski submitted materials to the FBI and to Congress last week that he said proved the Biden family — including Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden — leveraged their family name to broker a partnership with CEFC China Energy Co. in 2017.  Bobulinski was a member of the business consortium that dealt with the Chinese firm before things went south.  A spokesperson for Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), who chairs the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, told the Daily Caller on Wednesday [10/28/2020] that all of the electronic devices and records of business dealings reviewed to date have been verified.  The spokesperson also reportedly said that committee has not come across any "signs" or evidence to suggest the content is false.

About That 'Uncoverable' Biden Story.  Journalists claim they can't cover the New York Post's Hunter Biden email scoop because the underlying evidence has yet to been verified.  Also, they won't look for any verifying evidence because there isn't enough evidence.  It's quite the conundrum.  Because other than the now-corroborated emails, the laptop, the on-the-record source who was a CEO of a Biden corporation, a trove of text messages and documents, and a lack of denials, the Hunter Biden email story reminds me of the "Russian collusion" story.  Surely it deserves a modicum of scrutiny and follow-up.  Anyone who watched Tony Bobulinski's interview on Tucker Carlson's show this week — apparently it pulled over 5 million viewers — was confronted with a seemingly credible character.  Bobulinski says he met with Joe Biden in 2017, and that the former vice president was intimately involved in the family business.  Maybe someone will ask the candidate about this.

Complaint: Biden Center Received $22 Million In Donations From Unidentified Chinese Donor.  As questions loom about the Biden family's deep connections to the Chinese Communist Party, news comes that the Biden Center for Diplomacy & Global Engagement at the University of Pennsylvania has received $22 million in donations over six years from anonymous Chinese donors.  With just days to go before one of the most critical elections in modern times, requests by the National Legal & Policy Center (NLPC) to the University of Pennsylvania and the US Department of Education to release the names of those donors have been denied.  The NLPC filed a complaint with the Department of Education citing the donations because federal law requires universities to publicly disclose any donations over $250,000.  The NLPC said that despite this federal disclosure requirement the Department of Education will not compel the Biden Center to disclose the donor list.

Twitter, Facebook Confess There Is No Evidence Of Russian Disinformation Behind Hunter Biden Story.  In Wednesday's [10/28/2020] Senate hearing on Big Tech and Section 230, both Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg admitted that neither had any evidence that the New York Post's reporting on Joe Biden's knowledge of his son Hunter Biden's foreign business deals is Russian disinformation.  "For both Mr. Zuckerberg and Dorsey who censored the New York Post stories or throttle them back, do you have any evidence that the New York Post story is part of Russian disinformation or that those emails are not authentic?" Sen. Ron Johnson of Wisconsin asked.  "Do you have any information whatsoever they are not authentic or they are Russian disinformation?  Dorsey and Zuckerberg both denied receiving any indication that the story was part of a Russian misinformation campaign.

Confidential documents related to the Biden family have vanished.  Everyone knows the old joke that "even paranoid people have enemies."  Perhaps that needs to be expanded to say, "even conspiracy theorists sometimes stumble across real conspiracies."  During his Wednesday night [10/28/2020] show, Tucker Carlson said a source had sent documents about more Biden shenanigans to Fox News's New York office.  Carlson's producer forwarded the documents to Los Angeles, where Carlson was interviewing Tony Bobulinsky — but the documents vanished along the way.  Carlson explained that, on Monday, his producer deposited the envelope with a major American shipping company.  However, by Tuesday morning, the shipping company notified Carlson's team that the envelope was now open and empty.  The shipping company carefully tracked the envelope's progress across the country, beginning in Manhattan.  It learned that at 3:44 in the morning on Tuesday, an employee noticed that the envelope was open and empty.  The company interviewed every employee who touched the envelope and searched the drop-off office, the airplanes, the trucks, and the sorting warehouse through which the envelope passed.  It found nothing.  According to Carlson, the company has no idea what happened and doesn't like it.

Tucker Carlson Tells Viewers a Package with Biden Documents Sent By Producer from NY to LA Was Tampered with and Contents Went Missing.  Tucker Carlson told his audience on Wednesday night that on Monday his team received a collection of confidential and damning documents related to the Biden Family.  Tucker said he believed the documents were real and damning.  Tucker and his producer were in Los Angeles at the time and had an associate ship the documents to California overnight so Tucker could see them.  But the damning Biden documents never made it to Los Angeles.  The envelope was discovered during shipping and it was empty.  The contents of the package went missing.  The shipping company investigated and the company did not find out what happened to the contents of the package.

UPS Finds Mystery Tucker Carlson Package.  A spokesman for UPS told The Daily Beast on Thursday that they had located a mysterious packaged that Fox News host Tucker Carlson suggested had been deliberately misplaced or intercepted because it contained "damning" materials on the Biden family.  "After an extensive search, we have found the contents of the package and are arranging for its return," the spokesman said.  "UPS will always focus first on our customers, and will never stop working to solve issues and make things right."  Carlson suggested on Wednesday that he'd been the victim of a nefarious plot because the package he'd arranged to be sent to him had gone missing while being shipped.  Carlson claimed on his show that a Fox staffer had shipped the documents to him in California.  While Carlson never explicitly said the documents were stolen by some deep-state surveillance network, he implied as much, saying the documents had disappeared from the mailing company's network and couldn't be found even after an exhaustive search.

UPS says it has found the contents of Tucker Carlson's lost package reportedly 'damning' to the Biden family.  UPS said it found a cache of documents that the Fox News host Tucker Carlson said went missing under mysterious circumstances.  Carlson went on the air Wednesday night [10/28/2020] to announce the loss of the documents, which he said would be "damning" to Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden's campaign.  He told viewers his team received the documents from a source recently and that they were related to the Biden family.  He did not give other details.

Tucker Carlson says UPS can't explain how flash drive with Biden documents got separated from package.  Fox News host Tucker Carlson said there are unanswered questions about the brief disappearance of a package containing a flash drive with documents related to the Biden family's business ventures.  On his show Thursday [10/29/2020], one day after he announced that the package had disappeared, Carlson addressed how UPS tracked down the missing parcel but was unable to answer how the flash drive was separated from the envelope that contained it.  "The envelope was securely sealed, we know that," Carlson said on Thursday.  "Two witnesses saw our producer seal it, and UPS does not dispute that.  Was the package torn open accidentally by a machine?  That seems unlikely.  UPS says that almost never happens.  So, we're left with the obvious explanation.  Someone, for some reason, opened our package and removed a flash drive containing documents that were damaging to the Biden family.  We would love to know who would do that and why."

The case of the disappeared Biden documents.  We've been following the story of the Biden crime family documents delivered to the team of Tucker Carlson Tonight at FOX News.  The documents (on a flash drive) disappeared in transit in transit between New York, where they had been received, and Los Angeles, where Tucker was preparing to interview Tony Bobulinkski. [...] After Tucker reported the disappearance on his show this past Wednesday, UPS somehow found the flash drive.  What happened?  That is the question that Tucker raised last night.  Tucker reports that the recovery of the flash drive has closed the case from the perspective of UPS.  Tucker disagrees and notes that UPS has clammed up.  [Video clip]

Carlson's Biden Docs [have been] Found.  But How, Why, Did They Disappear?  UPS found the "damning" Hunter Biden documents that disappeared somewhere in transit to Fox's Tucker Carlson, the company said yesterday.  But Carlson says UPS hasn't come clean.  How, he asked on last night's program, were the contents of the envelope separated from the package?  Why was the envelope containing the flash drive that held the documents empty?  UPS, apparently, is mum.

What the missing Tucker docs really tell us.  In a politically charged year, the appearance of deliberately intercepted documents days before the election is just as damning as the contents the documents would reveal.  Which of the two would motivate the Trump base more is hard to say.  Unless UPS gives a legitimate reason for why the package was opened and the documents removed, their finding is not the end of this story.  It's never been about whether the Tucker Carlson's team had backup documents — I'm sure they do.  The shocking revelations confirm a familiar pattern of liberal sympathizers breaking the law in order to sabotage President Trump's chances at re-election.  Whether it's Antifa beating up reporters or FBI agents hashing out an "insurance policy," the rise of the illiberal left and the Deep State is what is on voters' minds.

We Soon Learn Whether Most Americans Are Any Different From the Masses Who Fell in Line With Hitler and Stalin.  [Scroll down]  Lesley Stahl said a great deal when she told the president she would not ask him about the Hunter Biden laptop because CBS had not independently verified its ownership.  So the biggest scandal imaginable — a corrupt and immoral presidential candidate who leveraged his political positions for half a century to get his family and him rich by compromising the national interest in order to curry favor with our nation's mortal enemies — is kiboshed.  In lockstep Facebook and Twitter will not allow the New York Post to share its extraordinary journalistic breakthrough on the Hunter Biden laptop.  Of course the laptop was Hunter Biden's — the signature on the repair order, the photos within it of him naked in a bathtub, the emails verified by a third party who worked with him.  But they will not tell the story, and they will not allow others to tell it, so half the country's voters do not even know enough about the story to reject it.

Senate Committee Successfully Verifies All Bobulinski Materials Reviewed To Date.  The Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee has been successful in verifying all materials reviewed so far from Hunter Biden's ex-business partner Tony Bobulinski, the Daily Caller has learned.  Committee Chairman Sen. Ron Johnson will not call Bobulinski to testify before the November 3 elections, as the committee is working to review all the information provided to the committee by Bobulinski.  The information has to be verified, as it is subject to the same false information to Congress laws that verbal or written testimony does.  However, a Johnson spokesperson told the Caller that all the material provided by Bobulinski that has been reviewed so far has turned out to be legitimate.  The committee has "also" not come across any "signs" or evidence to suggest the content is false, the spokesperson added.  Bobulinski, who said Tuesday [10/27/2020] he believes "Joe Biden and the Biden family are compromised" in an interview with Fox News host Tucker Carlson, has turned over evidence to the FBI alleging he met twice in the past with the former vice president in regards to business with his son Hunter.  The Biden family has not yet disputed this information.

Short Thoughts on Bobulinski Interview.  Essentially, Hunter Biden was a bag man for the Biden family; courting foreign businesses and governments for money so the payments could be laundered (by front businesses) and used to support the Biden family.  That is the general takeaway from the interview with one of the legitimate business people, Tony Bobulinski. [...] As Bobulinski detailed the engagements, one of the more glaring aspects was how easily the U.S. intelligence and law enforcement apparatus could monitor everything that was happening.  Many of the meetings were with foreign officials outside the U.S; and many of the structural parts of the network were assembled in locations easily infiltrated by the U.S. intelligence apparatus.  The Biden network's attempted communication was not too sophisticated.  Their electronic trail of communication was captured and recorded by people inside the network.  There is a ton of evidence for what they were doing including text messages, emails, phone call records and traceable meetings with all of the participants as outlined by Bobulinski.  So, knowing that, why did the U.S. intelligence apparatus not do anything about it?

Hunter Biden emails:  Tony Bobulinski says he was warned, 'You're just going to bury all of us'.  A former Hunter Biden business partner said Tuesday he was warned against going public with information about their business dealings when another ex-partner told him:  "You're just going to bury all of us."  During an appearance on Fox News, Tony Bobulinski said he spoke with former partner Rob Walker to demand that Walker get US Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) to retract his claim that The Post's recent reporting on Hunter Biden's emails was part of a Russian-orchestrated "smear on Joe Biden."  Host Tucker Carlson then played a snippet of an audio recording that Bobulinski said was part of the phone conversation.  "If he doesn't come out, on record, I am providing the facts," Bobulinski said.  "Ah, Tony, you're just going to bury all of us, man," Walker responded.

Never Forget the Time Joe Biden Said 'Don't Assume I'm Not Corrupt'.  The Democrats' lone shot at seizing power from the American people next week is currently embroiled in controversy surrounding reports that he used his son to peddle his influence while he served as the country's vice president.  Contents discovered on a laptop that reportedly belonged to his son Hunter Biden continue to bring up questions about Biden's alleged involvement in the younger Biden's international business dealings.  Numerous and credible reports that Biden himself was involved in making money from Hunter Biden's business in China, Russia, Kazakhstan and Ukraine have also not been challenged on substance.  But they portray a political family rooted in corruption, and they make a case that Biden himself allegedly guided American foreign policy while serving as VP with his own financial interests in mind.

Zuckerberg:  We Censored the Hunter Biden Story Because an Unnamed Individual at the FBI Told Us to be On the Lookout for Russian Disinformation.  Two possibilities:  [#1] The FBI gave him a general, nonspecific warning about Russian disinformation, and Zuckerberg is just using this as an excuse for his own company's partisan censorship.  [#2] More chillingly — the FBI, which was sitting on the laptop for a year and thereby keeping the story bottled-up, took the extra step of poisoning the well and claiming that the story was Russian disinformation to Zuckerberg, to make sure it got censored if it did come out.  If Zuckerberg's telling the truth, it's #2.

Tucker Carlson's interview with Tony Bobulinski is must-see TV.  On Tuesday night, Tucker Carlson did something he'd never done before: He dedicated his entire show to a single interview. The person he interviewed was Tony Bobulinski, an experienced international businessman who found himself working with Hunter Biden, James Biden, and others on a deal between the Biden group and CEFC, a Chinese energy company with ties to the Communist government and the military. [...] Bobulinski had saved everything — every document, every email, and every text. That's the quick background to the interview with Carlson, during which Bobulinski said that
  •   Hunter and James Biden brought nothing to the deal other than the Biden family name,
  •   What China wanted was the Biden family name,
  •   Joe Biden was involved in the business deal, so much so that he had veto power over negotiations,
  •   In 2017, Bobulinski met Joe Biden twice when the Biden side of SinoHawk was courting him to step in and act as CEO,
  •   Bobulinski also spoke at length with James Biden, Joe's brother,
  •   When Bobulinski asked James how they could get away with this kind of deal, which seemed to be falling into dangerous territory given that Joe could run again for president, James announced, "plausible deniability," and
  •   The Biden group stiffed Bobulinski, leaving him out of pocket for all his expenses while channeling CEFC's money into another entity that did not involve Bobulinski.
If we had a decent media, this story would be on every front page and at the top of every news hour.  Instead, Bobulinski is trying desperately to get Americans to know that he is not a Russian agent and that Joe Biden was in bed with the Communist Chinese government, starting when he was Vice President and continuing after he left the White House.

It's Not About the Money or the Prostitutes — It's about China.  It's not a Russian disinformation operation; it's not a political dirty trick based on lies.  Hunter Biden's laptop is real.  As are the emails and pictures on it.  Here are the facts.  We have the actual service agreement signed by Hunter Biden from when he dropped his hardware.  It is his signature at the bottom.  We have confirmation of the veracity of the emails from those involved in the Bidens' money-laundering scheme.  We have the FBI subpoena for the hard-drive with a "272-" prefix code indicating a money-laundering case.  And both the FBI and the director of national intelligence, the man who sits atop all 17 federal intelligence agencies, have publicly confirmed that there was zero indication of any foreign involvement in the laptop revelations, including Russian involvement.  Additionally, America's Mayor, Rudy Giuliani, has handed over his copies of the Biden hard drive to local police authorities in Delaware, where the laptop was abandoned, because it contained images that suggesting inappropriate sexual relations with an underage girl.  This after Hunter Biden was linked directly to prostitution and indirectly to a human-trafficking ring in the official Senate report released before the laptop's existence was revealed.  And then there is the Bobulinski press conference.

For Shame:  American Media Silence Over Biden Family Scandal.  The silence is deafening regarding the establishment media's refusal to cover the sordid tale of an influence-peddling scheme run by the Biden family.  A lengthy and detailed interview with Tony Bobulinski, a former business partner of Hunter Biden, blew the lid off this story last evening on Fox News.  It is a substantiated story with physical evidence piling up — yet we hear nothing but crickets from the national news media this morning.  Kudos to Tucker Carlson for his specific and thoughtful questioning of the former Navy veteran, who says he's come out of the shadows because his name was being sullied by false claims that he is somehow connected to Russia.  Mr. Bobulinski meticulously named dates, places, and conversations with presidential aspirant Joe Biden.  This was not a sketchy account of business dealings, but rather one with a great deal of specificity, including text messages, emails, and audiotapes to back up his claim that Mr. Biden is lying about his lack of involvement in his family's effort to peddle his influence in exchange for cash.  Where is a free and fair press at this moment?  Why are we witnessing a conspiracy to cover up this information?

Media Titans Are Misleading The Public About The Biden Scandal.  After big tech companies suppressed a New York Post article exposing written evidence that Joe Biden "spent some time together" with a top executive of a corrupt Ukrainian energy firm that was enriching his son, media titans are misleading the public about the central facts of this explosive affair.  Twitter, for a prime example, pinned a post to the top of its home page claiming that Biden "played no role in pressuring Ukraine officials into firing the prosecutor" at the core of this case.  That is flatly disproven by the words of Biden himself, who stated on video that he told Ukraine's president and its prime minister that he would withhold $1 billion in U.S. aid from their nation unless they removed the prosecutor.  "If the prosecutor is not fired," warned Biden, "you're not getting the money."

GOP Senators Call for Special Counsel to Investigate Hunter Biden Business Dealings.  Several Republican senators are calling for a special counsel to investigate Joe Biden's son, Hunter Biden, over allegations surrounding the family's business dealings overseas.  Republicans and President Donald Trump have focused on the business dealings of the Bidens while the Democrat was vice president, asserting that he may have engaged in an influence-peddling scheme to enrich his family.  They have cited data apparently sourced from a laptop that allegedly belonged to Hunter Biden, which included an alleged message from a Ukranian gas executive to Hunter saying that he would meet the former vice president in Washington in April 2015.  Biden's campaign denied a meeting took place.  Other than the emails, an eyewitness, Tony Bobulinski — a former business partner of Hunter Biden — said at a press conference on Oct. 22 that he would turn over several cellphones to the FBI, while telling news outlets that there was a deal outlined between state Chinese energy firm CEFC and the Biden family.  Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) said a special counsel might be needed to keep an investigation going whether President Trump wins another term in November or whether Joe Biden wins.

Scandal number N+1:
The Bidens Got Into the Hospital Business and People Died.  In the three years since Americore CEO Grant White was allegedly introduced by James Biden to Joe Biden at a fundraiser for the Beau Biden Foundation, a charity co-chaired by Hunter Biden whose laptop bearing the foundation's sticker is at the center of a new scandal, there have been lawsuits, an FBI raid, and investigations in different cities and states.  "James Biden mentioned that his brother's connections to labor unions and the Department of Veterans Affairs would help DMM expand its model nationwide," a lawsuit filed by one company claims.  Mayor Anthony Court, a Democrat, recalls White constantly dropping Biden's name.  White would later claim that Biden told him, "there's not a single door in the country that we can't open."  James Biden, Joe's brother, had become a principal at Americore whose business model was based on buying and turning around rural hospitals.  But the turnaround was into the grave.

Biden Whistleblower:  The Biden Family Is Compromised.  Tony Bobulinski, Hunter Biden's former business partner, sat down with Fox News' Tucker Carlson for a no-holds-barred interview for 45 minutes.  Bobulinski didn't want this interview.  He doesn't need to do it, but his reputation was being smeared as Russian misinformation.  He was a guest at the final debate and when the former vice president denied being involved in Hunter's business dealings, he almost stood up and shouted, "liar."  He added that Joe Biden is the "big guy" referenced in an equity arrangement with a shady Chinese firm with ties to the government.  The "chairman" is also what Hunter called his dad during these negotiations.  It's in the texts Bobulinski turned over to the FBI from his other business partners, Rob Walker and James Gilliar.  Bobulinski turned over all devices and business records relating to these Biden dealings and was interviewed by the FBI.  He re-confirmed what we already knew in the wake of the exposure of Hunter Biden.

Hunter Biden Audio Confesses Partnership With China 'Spy Chief'.  An audio recording exclusively obtained by the National Pulse reveals Hunter Biden discussing business involvement with a "spy chief of China" and how his business partner Devon Archer named him and his father as witnesses in a Southern District of New York Criminal case.  Hunter Biden — in an audio file labelled "Most Genius [...] Ever" — appears to be referencing Patrick Ho, who was a former Secretary for Home Affairs in Hong Kong, as a "spy chief of China" while lamenting how his business partner Ye Jianming of CEFC China Energy had disappeared.

Media Titans Subvert Reality About Biden/Ukraine Profiteering.  After big tech companies suppressed a New York Post article exposing written evidence that Joe Biden "spent some time together" with a top executive of a corrupt Ukrainian energy firm that was enriching his son, media titans are misleading the public about the central facts of this explosive affair.  Twitter, for a prime example, pinned a post to the top of its home page claiming that Biden "played no role in pressuring Ukraine officials into firing the prosecutor" at the core of this case.  That is flatly disproven by the words of Biden himself, who stated on video that he told Ukraine's president and its prime minister that he would withhold $1 billion in U.S. aid from their nation unless they removed the prosecutor.  "If the prosecutor is not fired," warned Biden, "you're not getting the money."

Hunter Biden and Lobbyist Named in IRS Complaint Against National Security Non-Profit Where They Both Served on Board.  A Virginia man filed an IRS complaint on Tuesday [10/27/2020] accusing a left-leaning national security non-profit of violating tax law by failing to disclose a business relationship between two of its board members — Hunter Biden and Sally Painter — and Burisma Holdings. [...] The complaint reads, in part:  "Organization did not disclose existence of business relationship via a shared client and coordination with that client."

Biden Is the Plug-n-Play Chinese Dupe.  The role of finding a "useful idiot," which led to the duping of Hunter Biden and his vice president father, was outlined in a question posed by the colonels on page 191 of Unrestricted Warfare: "Can special funds be set up to exert greater influence on another country's government and legislature through lobbying?"  The question might well be answered:  "Well, yes, we could co-opt the degenerate son of the vice president of the United States and have reflexive control over the father."  (One has only to listen to Anthony Bobulinski's detailed and extremely well-documented story about the greed of the Biden family to realize that until now Colonels Liang and Xiangsui must have been doing backflips of glee with the success of their plan, [...])  Ironically, in the very next sentence, the colonels asked:  "And could buying or gaining control of stocks be used to turn another country's newspapers and television stations into the tools of media warfare?"

Hunter Biden's former business partner releases audio of 'Biden family friend imploring him not to go public'.  A former Navy lieutenant who spent six months in 2017 in business with Hunter Biden, trying unsuccessfully to get a joint venture with a Chinese firm off the ground, has made public an audio recording from earlier this month, which he claims was a Biden associate trying to silence him.  Tony Bobulinski appeared on Tucker Carlson's Fox News show on Tuesday night and an audio was played of Rob Walker — whose wife works for Jill Biden — allegedly warning Bobulinski not to go public with the information.  'If he doesn't come out on record I am providing the facts,' Bobulinski told Walker.

Tony Bobulinski Plays Tape of Biden Partners Begging Him Not to Go Public.  Tony Bobulinski gave some rather compelling tidbits of information about the Biden family's business dealings with a Chinese company during his interview with Fox News' Tucker Carlson on Tuesday night.  At one point in the conversation, the whistleblower played an audio recording of a phone call with a Biden family representative who attempted to talk him out of taking the story public.

Hunter's Ex-Business Partner Tony Bobulinski: 'Joe Biden And The Biden Family Are Compromised'.  Hunter Biden's ex-business partner Tony Bobulinski told Fox News host Tucker Carlson on Tuesday that Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden will be "compromised" as president because of his family's business dealings with China.  "I think Joe Biden and the Biden family are compromised," Bobulinski said.  "I just don't see, given the history here in the facts, how Joe can't be influenced in some manner based on the history that they have," Bobulinski said.  "So as a citizen and an American taxpayer, I'm very, very concerned."  Bobulinski explained how he met with Joe Biden in Los Angeles on May 2, 2017, at the request of Hunter and his uncle, Jim Biden, to discuss the Biden family dealings at a high level.

Feds Authorized FISA Warrant Against Hunter Biden Chinese Business Associate, Report Says.  Federal law enforcement officials reportedly obtained a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant against a Chinese business associate of Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden's son, Hunter Biden.  The Daily Caller News Foundation reports that the revelation suggests that the man, Patrick Ho, was "suspected of acting as a covert agent of a foreign government."  The revelation was made in a court documents from early 2018 that were obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation.  "Ho was charged on Dec. 18, 2017 with conspiracy to violate the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and money laundering related to CEFC China Energy contracts in Uganda and Chad," the report stated.  "Ho had been an executive at the multi-billion dollar Chinese energy company prior to his arrest."

Bobulinski: Biden's Brother Said They Got Away with Dealings with 'Plausible Deniability'.  During an interview aired on Tuesday's [10/27/2020] broadcast of the Fox News Channel's "Tucker Carlson Tonight," former Hunter Biden business associate Tony Bobulinski stated that 2020 Democratic presidential nominee former Vice President Joe Biden's brother, Jim, responded to Bobulinski's question on whether the Bidens were taking a political risk with their business dealings by saying, "plausible deniability."

'Look out for my family' — Hunter's biz partner tells all on meetings with Joe Biden.  For Tony Bobulinski, the meetings with Joe Biden are unforgettable, and not because they had anything to do with politics.  It's because that's when Bobulinski fully understood that Joe was very much involved in the foreign business schemes that son Hunter Biden and Joe's brother Jim had cooked up.  The final proof came during two conversations over two days in May 2017.  He first met the former vice president in the lobby of the Beverly Hilton Hotel, where Joe was to speak the next day at the Milken Conference on the "moonshot project" of finding a cure for cancer.  "Hunter and Jim and I are there, and Hunter gets up and talks to his father when he comes in," Bobulinski told me in a Tuesday [10/27/2020] interview.  "He then brings Joe over and introduces me, saying he's the one who's helping us with the business we're doing with the Chinese." If Joe Biden was honest with the public when he said he never discussed Hunter's business with him, the next words out of his mouth would have been, "What business with the Chinese?  What are you talking about, son?"

Biden rally October 27
Ronna McDaniel's Twitter feed tells you what the polls are missing.  If you pay attention only to the polls and the mainstream media narrative, you'll believe that, even though the presidential race is tightening, Biden still maintains a lead and can handily win the upcoming election.  However, if you look at the information on the Twitter feed of Ronna McDaniel, the GOP Chairwoman, you'll see an entirely different story and one that is more in sync with Trump's well-attended rallies compared to Biden's anemic afternoon teas.  Today, Joe Biden shuffled out of his basement for another one of his "rallies."  It was an embarrassment:  [Photo]  Meanwhile, Donald Trump is doing two to three rallies a day, every day, and looking more vibrant and alive with each passing appearance before tens of thousands of people.

Joe Biden Campaigns to 38 Circles of Supporters and Media in Warm Springs, Georgia.  38 circles were drawn on the ground today in Warm Springs for Joe Biden's "rally" today [10/27/2020].  It appears the media was sitting in a few of the circles.

Joe Biden Rallies Dozens in Georgia.  Former Vice President Joe Biden spoke to a few dozen attendees, including press, for his scheduled remarks in Warm Springs, Georgia, Tuesday afternoon [10/27/2020] with the presidential election just one week away.  Reporters took to social media to share photos from the event, which divided the small number of supporters up using large white circles.

The Editor says...
Virus or no virus, if the presidential election is a week away and one of the two candidates can't get three dozen chairs filled at a rally, the candidate surely must know that he's about to lose the election.  Joe Biden knows he lost the election last week, when Hunter Biden's laptop hit the fan, and Joe himself said he would eliminate the petroleum industry if given the chance.  No amount of media spin can save him now.  His only hope is massive voter fraud (e.g., dead voters, duplicate votes, corrupt election judges, fraud at the central counting station, etc.), combined with weeks of hair-splitting legal arguments (e.g., hanging chads), activist judges, and frivolous litigation in courtrooms all over the country.

Biden Expresses Openness To Rotating Justices Off The Supreme Court.  If court packing sounds too extreme, then maybe court rotation will do the trick.  Now that Judge Amy Coney Barrett has been confirmed to the Supreme Court, Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden has said he will consider rotating justices if he gets elected next week.  Speaking at a campaign stop in Chester, Pennsylvania, Biden said he will consider shifting the Supreme Court justices to lower courts during his tenure.

Joe Biden Refers to Doug Emhoff as 'Kamala's Wife'.  Former Vice President Joe Biden suffered a brain freeze during a television interview in Texas on Monday when he called Sen. Kamala Harris's (D-CA) husband, Doug Emhoff, "Kamala's wife."  Democrats in Texas have been calling on Biden to take the state more seriously, and in an appearance with NBC 5 in Dallas-Fort Worth, Biden attempted to defend his attention to the state. [...] Biden did not correct himself.  NBC 5 did not reference Biden's blunder in its story.

Joe Biden Calls Running Mate's Husband 'Kamala's Wife'.  2020 Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden referred to his running mate California Sen. Kamala Harris's husband, Doug Emhoff, as "Kamala's wife."  "My wife, Jill, as you know and Doug Emhoff, Kamala's wife were there," Biden said speaking of Texas on Monday [10/26/2020]. [...] If sworn in, Biden, who will be 78 by January would be the oldest president ever to take power.  Biden's repeated gaffes also help explain the Democratic nominee's light campaign schedule just days before the November contest.

Hunter Biden's former business partner Tony Bobulinski is set to reveal explosive "new allegations" and recordings detailing his relationship with the Bidens.  Hunter Biden's former business partner Tony Bobulinski will appear on Tucker Carlson's Fox News show on Tuesday night with 'new allegations', which sources claim will 'bury' the Biden family.  Bobulinski has since early October been pushing the story of his time in business with Hunter Biden, 50, and his claims that Joe Biden was involved in the attempts to make deals.  Sean Davis, co-founder of The Federalist, tweeted: 'According to a source familiar with the planning, Bobulinski will play recordings of Biden family operatives begging him to stay quiet and claiming Bobulinski's revelations will "bury" the reputations of everyone involved in Hunter's overseas deals.'

Hunter Biden's 2017 rant about Burisma: 'I was fighting for the only income I have left'.  After his father left office as vice president, Hunter Biden lamented to a business partner in spring 2017 that his lucrative and controversial relationship with the Ukrainian gas company Burisma Holdings was in danger of falling apart.  "I was fighting for the only income I have left right now from Burisma," Hunter Biden wrote in a series of terse, f-bomb-laden text messages in June 2017 to Tony Bobulinski, the chief executive officer of a China-related venture the Biden family was creating at the time.  The messages were contained in dump of communications that Bobulinski, now a whistleblower to the Senate and FBI, made public in the last week.  They were independently verified by Just the News with one of the recipients and provide fresh evidence that Hunter Biden's business fortunes appeared in many ways tied to his father's proximity to power.

Former Goldman Sachs Chief Pours $100K into Joe Biden's Campaign.  A former Goldman Sachs president made a huge, last-minute donation to Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden's campaign against President Trump.  Harvey Schwartz, former president of Goldman Sachs, donated about $100,000 to the Biden Action Fund in October, according to Federal Election Commission data.

Biden Looked Normal At The Debates, So Why Does He Appear Senile At Most Other Times?  Biden's staff, which includes much of the media, must by now be weary of having to cover his repeated stumbles and descents into a momentary, but growing, madness.  In only the last year, Biden:
  •   Called the Declaration of Independence "you know, the thing."
  •   Addressed Chris Wallace as "Chuck."
  •   Failed to recall Mitt Romney's name so just labeled him "the senator who was a Mormon."
  •   Said he was running as "a proud Democrat for the Senate."
  •   Identified himself as an "Obiden-Bama Democrat."
  •   Apparently thought Dec. 7 is D-Day.
  •   Blundered his way through the U.S. COVID-19 death toll — was it 20, or 200,000 or 200 million?
  •   Struggled to recall the word "manifesto," which is not a term unknown to politicians, until it was provided to him by someone at a campaign stop who had asked him about the New Green Deal and Medicare for All.
  •   Lost count before he got to three while going over a list.
  •   Either said Arizona is an "important city" or so thoroughly slurred the word in question that no one could be sure what he said.
Heaven knows Biden has a long history of making gaffes.  And maybe some of his bungling can be attributed to him just being a natural-born blooper machine.  But all of it?  Unlikely.  The volume of slip-ups is too much.

Hunter Biden: White Crackhead Privilege.  [Scroll down]  Look: people aren't perfect, but how do normal nonviolent drug offenders who aren't the sons of vice presidents get treated?  Hunter Biden is not an accomplished attorney, military leader, or businessman.  He's a millionaire because his name is Hunter Biden.  How did he get to be a millionaire?  He got there the old fashioned way, the same way Benedict Arnold became famous and the same way Mata Hari became famous:  He traded honor for dollars.  Facebook and Twitter have done everything they can to hide Hunter's cocaine-and-hookers act, but here's the gist:  He traded access to his father, then the vice president of the United States, for extremely lucrative deals with very questionable companies and associates, some of whom are enemies of America.  He put the White House up for sale to the highest rollers and bidders.  Imagine Donald Trump, Jr. or Charlotte Pence Bond trying to pull this menagerie of corruption.

Joe Biden is just not qualified, for health reasons.  Joe Biden is exhibiting clear symptoms of failing mental health.  It is increasingly obvious he really is unaware of what is going on around him, and this condition appears to be worsening at a frightening pace.  The other day he forgot he was running against Trump, referring instead to "George," as in George Bush.  Earlier he forgot the president he had worked under while vice president.  Another time he started quoting the most famous line from the Declaration of Independence, and lost his way in the middle.  Then there was the time he actually removed his mask during a speech in order to cough.  He has repeatedly made the mistake of saying he is running for "the Senate,", has claimed 200 million have died from COVID-19 in the U.S., and forgotten the name of the Republican candidate for President in the 2012 election.  The list of these strange gaffes is quite long.  Normally I do not pay much attention to such errors, as every candidate makes these kind of verbal mistakes during the campaign.  It is the number that is disturbing, and the fact that they seem to be happening more and more often, almost on a daily basis.  Worse, the increasing number of Biden's gaffes, errors, and apparent confusion have been accompanied by what seems an increasing requirement that he be guided closely in whatever he does.  While he definitely has periods of lucidity, such as during both debates, Biden more and more seems incapable of doing anything without a teleprompter or a script or guidance from his staff or wife.

Putin comes out in support of Joe & Hunter Biden.  Reuters reported that Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Sunday that he saw nothing criminal in Hunter Biden's past business ties with Ukraine or Russia.  Is this Russian disinformation or does that only happen when Putin appears to support Trump?  He claimed Hunter had successful businesses in Ukraine and was annoyed when asked about Trump's comments concerning Putin's ties to the former mayor of Moscow and alleged payment of millions to Hunter Biden.  He said he knew nothing of such a commercial relationship.

Did Joe Biden Give The Chinese The South China Sea?  As the evidence mounts suggesting Joe Biden was directly involved in taking cash from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) there is a growing chorus of voices raising the possibility that Biden could be blackmailed by the Chinese into doing their bidding in the future.  As terrifying as that possibility is it should not be our chief worry.  Our primary concern should be not that Biden might be turned.  It should be that he has already been turned, and he is already doing Beijing's bidding.  The reality is that in the world of intelligence sources are rarely blackmailed into doing anything.  Instead, they are slowly recruited, manipulated, and bought.  Ultimately, they are completely in the pocket of whoever is targeting them and doing their bidding.  That process may well have begun years ago with Joe Biden, and he may have begun acting on behalf of the Chinese Communist Party when he was still Vice-President of the United States.  Consider the confluence of events surrounding China's seizure of the South China Sea and the almost inexplicable refusal of the United States of America to push back against that aggressive and illegal action.

Biden Ad Misleads, But Snopes Attacks Conservative Media for Exposing It!  The Biden campaign took an ad down from its YouTube page after it was exposed as deceptive.  Michigan bar owner Joe Malcoun said "For 50 years, The Blind Pig has been open and crowded — but right now it's an empty room.  This is the reality of Trump's COVID response."  He added "we don't know how much longer we can survive not having any revenue."  But reporters discovered Malcoun inherited money from his wife's grandfather, which he likened to "winning the lottery."  Did the "fact checkers" come after the Biden campaign?  No, they attacked conservative outlets!  On Thursday, Dan MacGuill at strangely called out Fox News, the Washington Free Beacon, the Daily Caller, and others for "Mostly False" analysis.

Which Flavor of Commie Is Joe Biden?  [Scroll down]  Biden has been wrong on every major foreign policy issue for nearly 50 years, siding with Communist policy objectives of the Soviet Union, China, and others at every turn.
  •   During the late 1960s and early '70s, when he first entered politics (!), he wanted to divide Vietnam into small pieces.
  •   During the Reagan era, he opposed the Reagan Doctrine, the Strategic Defense Initiative, deployment of the MX missile, deployment of nuclear Tomahawks to Europe to counter Soviet medium-range SS-20s, and support to the Nicaraguan contras (who opposed the Sandinistas who were the Soviets' proxies in Central America).  He also supported a "nuclear freeze" during the height of the Cold War (which would have locked in the Soviets' numerical advantage in land-based multi-warhead nuclear missiles).
  •   He opposed President Bush 41 on the Persian Gulf War, he opposed President Bush 43 on the surge that finally won the war in Iraq, and he even opposed Obama's decision to kill Osama Bin Laden. He voted for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan in 2001 and 2002.  He claimed that Turkey would prove that Islam and democracy could peacefully co-exist.
  •   He claimed that Benghazi was the intelligence community's fault for not having forewarned the Obama regime that the attack was due to a protest over a previously unheard-of movie trailer (a complete lie, as we now know).  He helped Obama enable the rise of ISIS in Syria.  He denounced President Trump's decision to kill Qassem Suleimani, the commander of Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps.
  •   He supported Obama's deal with Iran (the JCPOA) which has since been exposed as a gift to the mullahs, but the Iranians received their "pallets of cash."  What do you suppose the world's foremost state sponsor of terrorism did with that money?

Bobulinski To Play Damning Recordings Of Biden Family Operatives On Tucker Carlson.  According to a bombshell new report, ex-Biden associate Tony Bobulinksi will be joining Fox News host Tucker Carlson on Tuesday evening to play recordings of Biden family operatives, begging him to stay quiet.  "Tucker Carlson's show tomorrow night will be devoted entirely to an interview with Tony Bobulinksi, the Biden family insider-turned-whistleblower whose explosive e-mails show that Joe Biden himself was deeply involved in Hunter's foreign business dealings," reported The Federalist's Sean Davis.  "According to a source familiar with the planning, Bobulinski will play recordings of Biden family operatives begging him to stay quiet and claiming Bobulinski's revelations will "bury" the reputations of everyone involved in Hunter's overseas deals," he continued.

Media Weaponize COVID Fear to Cover Biden Disappearance.  With reports of Joe Biden cancelling all in-person campaign events, the Club members are trying to carry their Potemkin candidate across the finish line.  Everyone is now aware Joe Biden is a cover for the real person the puppeteers want in the oval office, Kamala Harris.  That said, the DNC needs to weaponize the COVID-19 threat as a cover story to explain the lack of campaigning by the Democrat candidates; hence, the media hype of the coronavirus is back this week in full swing.  COVID fear is a narrative cover-story to hide the lack of support for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.  Part of that cover-story is needed because the MAGA community was showing up in overwhelming numbers at Biden-Harris events, and the false illusion of support — propping up the Potemkin village — was being exposed.  All of these machinations are part of a remarkable attempt at psychological operations in this election.

Media Firemen Scramble to Save Biden Candidacy.  During the Biden stretch run, the firemen on the left have shredded what is left of their reputations as journalists to destroy information the Deep State does not want their audiences to have.  Even before Hunter Biden's laptop surfaced, the media busied themselves suppressing information that was readily available to the ordinary citizen — montages of Biden plagiarizing, groping little girls, making racially insensitive comments, eulogizing exalted KKK cyclops, threatening Ukrainian prosecutors, even sexually assaulting at least one very credible Democrat — and they did so with enough success that the Biden camp felt comfortable positioning Joe as the candidate with "character."  The Hunter laptop was too tangible to dispose of subtly.  Not since Joseph Goebbels urged the German Student Union "to commit to the flames the evil spirit of the past" has a western nation so flagrantly thrown in on the side of ignorance.  Twitter has gotten most of the attention for its total blocking of the New York Post, which broke the laptop story, but the firemen at NPR were not far behind.

The October Laptop Surprise.  Please promise not to even whisper amongst yourselves what you are about to read here.  Do not share it, or even comment below about Hunter Biden's laptop, because social media tells us that you are not qualified to know or discuss this information at the risk of having your account banned, where you will possibly be electronically scorned for life.  And, as if the threat of being banned by FB or Twitter were not bad enough, the ultimate warning was laid down by James Clapper, "Fight if you want, but there's nothing you can do. 'The emails are Russian' is going to be the official dominant narrative in the mainstream political discourse, and there's nothing you can do to stop it!  Resistance is Futile."  Who amongst us will volunteer to tell former DNI James Clapper that he is — so yesterday — and would he please mind sitting down.  And, furthermore, that it has been confirmed by the current DNI John Ratcliffe that, "Hunter Biden's laptop is not part of some Russian disinformation campaign."

Hunter Biden Is Just the Tip of the China Iceberg.  Thanks to a statement from a former Hunter Biden associate and leaked emails that were never supposed to see the light of day, we now know that former Vice President Joe Biden may have been involved in his son's business dealings with China.  This is concerning, since one of his affiliated investment firms directly supported a Chinese company accused of the espionage of nuclear technology in the United States.  This episode demonstrates the great lengths to which China seems willing to go to influence U.S. public policy and get ahead of its military.  But this example is far from an anomaly.  It only scratches the surface of what the People's Republic has been doing to counter American military superiority for years.

America's Leading Pro-Life Priests Agree That 'No Catholic Can Vote for Joe Biden'.  Leading Catholic priests in the United States — Fr. Frank Pavone, Fr. Michael Orsi, and Fr. Stephen Imbarrato — are saying that no believer in Christ should vote for Joe Biden for president this year.  Biden has advertised his Catholic bona fides despite supporting the murder of babies in the womb and LGBTP "rights."  These hardline Catholics, who have not allowed the world to warp their understanding of faith like Pope Francis has done, believe that Biden's hypocrisy makes him an unacceptable choice for president.

The March of The Deplorables — President Trump's Army Has Chased Biden Off Campaign Trail.  In early October a large number of Latino supporters for Trump in Miami-Dade county Florida surprised the Biden-Harris campaign by swarming a local Kamala Harris event. [...] The Deplorables are on the march, and their assembled visibility, the political optics, have destroyed the media narrative.  The downstream impact on the messaging of the Biden-Harris campaign, their surrogates and the DNC club writ large, is devastating.  That's almost certainly the real reason Joe Biden has abandoned his in-person campaigning.

Text Messages Show VP Biden and His Wife Colluded to Suppress Hunter's Actions With A Certain Minor.  [Scroll down]  Of course, Biden is the one who is lying, as leaked emails have revealed deep levels of corruption and homemade porn of his son smoking crack with prostitutes is all over the internet.  But today we have more — much more.  Hunter Biden sent the following text to a family friend where he shares that someone is accusing him of being sexually inappropriate around her daughter.  This is why Hunter claims he is not allowed to be alone with that person: [...] These texts paint a horrible picture of what is going on behind the scenes in the Biden family.  What [...] was going on in the Biden household?  If a minor was involved, why did no one contact the police?  Why was this hidden from the public?  Was this because it would tarnish Joe's political image?  Most importantly, is the child safe now?

Biden's federal fracking ban prompts warnings from big energy.  The oil and gas industry is doubling down on countering Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden's promise to neuter fracking, which could upend America as an energy leader and eliminate thousands of jobs.  Biden said on Saturday [10/24/2020] that he supports a fracking ban on federal lands and waters, which account for 13% of the nation's natural gas production.  The comments came as he attempted to clarify remarks made at last week's debate that supported transitioning the U.S. away from oil.  On Monday, President Trump in a tweet, reminded voters that his plans would hurt jobs.

Joe Biden's insane war on oil.  Joe Biden wants to take one of the great American success stories of the last several decades — and drive it into the ground.  He would turn his back on the stupendous wealth represented by proven reserves of oil and gas in this country.  Rather than focusing on producing cheap, abundant energy — a key ingredient to human progress through all of human history — he would embark on the fool's errand of trying to adjust the world's thermostat 80 years from now.  After a 50-year effort to diminish our reliance on Middle Eastern oil, which has miraculously happened at last, Biden would force America to transition to solar and wind, industries currently dependent on Chinese supply chains.

Putin: 'I Don't See Anything Criminal' About Hunter Biden's Dealings.  Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Sunday [10/25/2020] he saw nothing wrong with the business dealings of presidential candidate Joe Biden's son Hunter in Ukraine and Russia.  The American mainstream media passed along Putin's comments without any warning messages about "disinformation" or "election meddling," even though they have breathlessly reported claims that Russia influenced the 2016 election and is attempting to influence the 2020 race.

Vladamir [sic] Putin Speaks Out Against Hunter Biden, Says He "Made Very Good Money".  While speaking to reporters on Monday [10/26/2020], Russian president Vladamir Putin commented on the ongoing Hunter Biden scandal, stating that the former Vice President's son had made "very good money" in Ukraine.  The Russian president said that Hunter Biden's business dealings had little to do with Russia.

Confronting political censorship.  The bombshell discovered on a laptop purportedly belonging to Hunter Biden, son of Democratic presidential contender Joe Biden, were quickly contained last week when dominant social media platforms chose to shield them from public view.  A New York Post exclusive, including email references to a meeting between then-Vice President Biden and an executive of corruption-tainted Ukrainian energy firm Burisma Holdings, lent fresh rationale to President Trump's call last year for investigation of the Bidens for peddling access.  Congressional Democrats retaliated and tried unsuccessfully to oust Mr. Trump from office.  The Hunter Biden revelations comprise an epic October surprise with the potential of tarnishing Mr. Biden's image weeks before his Election Day faceoff against the Republican president.  But Twitter and Facebook chose to block users from linking to the story, effectively forcing readers to engage in a game of online hide-and-seek to read it.

Joe Biden Cuts Off Reporter During Question on Hunter Biden.  Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden cut off a Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, television reporter on Saturday who was attempting to ask a question about his son, Hunter Biden.  WYOU reporter Andy Mehalshick began saying, "Questions and controversy continue today about Hunter Biden, your son," before Biden jumped on him:  "There is no controversy," he snapped.  "That's all a lie."

Hunter Biden messages 'independently confirmed' to be authentic, GOP lawmaker says.  A top House Republican said his staff independently authenticated materials from a laptop that purportedly belonged to Hunter Biden.  Rep. Jim Jordan, the ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee, insisted during a Sunday [10/25/2020] interview on Fox News that the emails generating controversy for Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden in the final weeks of the 2020 election cycle are "as real as real can be."  Biden [...] has issued a patchwork of denials in response to allegations that he got wrapped up in foreign business dealings involving his family.  As Trump and his allies have sought to leverage the laptop controversy, one point they often make is that neither the former vice president nor his son Hunter have denied the authenticity of the emails, photos, and other contents found in a laptop and hard drive given to a Delaware computer shop that have been shared with the FBI and Rudy Giuliani, a personal attorney to the president.

Democrats Resurrect 'Russia Bogeyman' Ruse to Cover Joe and Hunter Biden's Foreign Misconduct.  If a U.S. political giant falls in Washington, D.C. but nobody is around to hear it, did Russia do it?  Judging by the way the Democrats have been overplaying the anti-Russia card for the past four years, we already know the answer to that question.  Last week, the New York Post fired off a bombshell story that exposed emails allegedly belonging to U.S. presidential candidate Joe Biden's son, Hunter Biden.  The messages — discovered on a laptop that the younger Biden had reportedly dropped off at a Delaware computer repair shop in April 2019 — point to a level of corruption and nepotism that is shocking even by modern standards.

Hunter Biden Sought To Avoid Registering As Foreign Agent In Chinese Business Venture, Text Message Shows.  Hunter Biden suggested setting up a shell company to do business with a Chinese firm in order to avoid registering as a foreign agent, and to be able to bid on contracts with the U.S. government, according to documents from May 2017 obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation.  A day after sending the message, Biden arranged a meeting between his father, Joe Biden, and Tony Bobulinski, one of the prospective partners in a deal with CEFC China Energy, a Chinese conglomerate whose chairman had links to the communist regime in Beijing.  "We don't want to have to register as foreign agents under the FCPA which is much more expansive than people who should know choose not to know," Hunter Biden wrote to Bobulinski on May 1, 2017, according to a message obtained by the DCNF.

Jim Biden Lashes Out At Tony Bobulinski For Revealing Biden Corruption.  Ex-Biden business associate Tony Bobulinski recently came forward and provided damning information on the Biden family, specifically how they went behind his back and did a shady $5 million deal with the Chinese energy company CEFC.  On Saturday [10/24/2020], Bobulinski texted Joe Biden's brother, Jim Biden, about going behind his back.
