I heard the blood on Biden's hands continues to rise as 54 border jumpers are roasted in a hot tractor-trailer stuffed by cartel human traffickers.

Biden's French parrot 🦜, Karine Jean-Pierre continues to lie for Lyin' Biden squawking “The fact of the matter is, the border is closed,”, adding “Which is in part why you see people trying to make this dangerous journey using smuggling networks.”

Do you see what she did there?

Now we're going to meet with the Taliban about unfreezing their money?



Suddenly it seems as if the Biden administration has launched into a flurry of meetings with foreign governments (and pseudo-governments) about all sorts of things. And they aren’t all countries you’d expect us to be talking to. On top of scheduling a meeting with the Saudi royal family (who are supposedly persona non grata because of assassinating a Washington Post journalist) and meeting with the unrecognized and illegitimate “president” of Venezuela, we’re now learning that a delegation is heading to Qatar to meet with the Taliban. And what will be on the agenda there? Why, they’ll be talking about unfreezing the Taliban’s overseas assets, of course. But we’re not doing it to help the Taliban. Perish the thought. We’re just making sure they have enough money to help their oppressed people after the recent earthquake in that country. (KRDO)

Afghan finance and central bank officials from the Taliban-led government have departed for Qatar to meet with U.S. officials. The move comes after last week’s deadly earthquake highlighted how critical relief efforts have stumbled under the weight of the country’s spiraling economic woes. The quake in southeastern Afghanistan killed at least 770 people. That’s according to the U.N, though the Taliban put the figure at around 1,150 people killed. Wednesday’s meeting in Qatar was confirmed by Afghanistan’s foreign ministry. The Washington Post first reported that Biden administration officials are considering ways to allow Afghanistan’s government to use its frozen central bank reserves to tackle the humanitarian crises there.

There’s no question that the earthquake that rocked Afghanistan was bad. It absolutely was. At least one thousand people are dead and many more remain missing. What little infrastructure they have was damaged badly. It was yet another body blow to the rank-and-file people of that country who have already been through hell and back again after the return of the Taliban.

But are we seriously talking about unfreezing their assets and treating them like a legitimate government? I’m not denying in any way that the people of that country need help. They clearly do. But foreign nations have already been pumping large amounts of cash and other forms of relief into Afghanistan but “mysteriously” the conditions for the average people on the streets have not been improving. If anything, they’ve gotten worse. And that was true long before the earthquake struck.

If we unlock all or most of their foreign-held assets, does anyone honestly believe that the pack of terrorists in Kabul is going to apply that money to sending out food and improving the lives of regular Afghan citizens? Also, by releasing the funds, that would be just one more step on the journey toward what the Taliban has desired all along. They want to be recognized by the world as the legitimate government of the country they took over in a violent coup after our botched withdrawal from the country last summer.

There is a way around this and it could be done by an existing international coalition if the Taliban would allow it. Send in humanitarian aid workers with food, medicine, and other needed supplies (but not cash) and see if the Taliban allows them to distribute the aid to the people who are actually in need. If they agree to that, then maybe we can begin thinking about them as a potentially legitimate government in the future. But I won’t be holding my breath. The Taliban don’t care about their own people and they have made that clear. And not to put too fine of a point on this, but we didn’t cause the earthquake. Earthquakes happen sometimes.

We seem to be cutting deals with some of the worst people in the world these days. And we’re doing it at the same time that we’re edging closer and closer to a potential war with Russia and/or China. There is little rhyme or reason to America’s current foreign policy.

Joe in Madrid was horrible as expected. He said to the other dicktators and the world that "The one thing that has been destabilizing is the outrageous behavior of the Supreme Court of the United States and overruling not only Roe v. Wade but essentially challenging the right to privacy," So I guess The Supreme Court actually reading the Constitution and stuff is the now the biggest obstacle to the progressive agaenda and it has to stop. Think

Then he said that Americans should suck it up and stop complaining about gas prices and inflation in general because it's even worse in all of you third-rate countries, "I can understand why the American people are frustrated because of inflation, but inflation is higher in almost every other country. Prices at the pump are higher in almost every other country."

Jim Bovard is a cigar-smoking libertarian BS detector.
He made the Obama regime so mad that their Justice Department tried to get his editorials canceled from USA Today.

But here is just a review of only 10 of Lyin' Biden Lies...

New York Post: Debunking 10 of Biden’s Lies


New York Post, June 16, 2022

By James Bovard

Quote:
“Inflation is the bane of our existence,” President Biden lamented last week to talk show host Jimmy Kimmel. Unfortunately, he was referring to inflation’s effect on presidential approval ratings, not the plight of average Americans brutalized to pay for gas and groceries.

The president’s speech Tuesday to the AFL-CIO was another Team Biden pity party that hard facts were not permitted to interrupt.

CLAIM: Biden boasted that he “put America in a position to tackle the worldwide problem that’s worse everywhere but here: inflation.”

REALITY: Were Joe’s speechwriters using “Common Core” math that makes all bad numbers vanish? Inflation is 8.6% in America and 5.4% in South Korea, 5.1% in Australia, 6.8% in Canada.

CLAIM: Biden continued blam­ing Russian President Vladimir Putin for price hikes here in America.

REALITY: But National Public Radio reported earlier this year that “between 2019 and 2021, the US saw one of the biggest inflation-rate increases in the world, behind only Brazil and Turkey.” Inflation had increased fourfold under Biden — reaching 7% — before Russia invaded Ukraine. Wholesale price inflation last month was almost 11% — signaling worse times ahead for US consumers.

CLAIM: Biden on Wednesday accused US oil companies of making excessive profits. He ordered them to “take immediate actions to increase the supply” of gasoline and diesel fuels.

REALITY: Biden’s own policies have disrupted energy markets. The American Petroleum Institute issued a list of 10 steps Biden could take to reduce supply disruptions, including ending obstruction of permitting on natural-gas projects, lifting development restrictions on federal lands and waters and ending Trump-era steel tariffs.

CLAIM: Biden apparently thinks that public raving can restore confidence in his leadership. He literally screamed at the AFL-CIO audience: “I don’t want to hear any more of these lies about reckless spending. We’re changing people’s lives!”

REALITY: Federal Reserve analysts estimated that Biden’s deluge of handouts added 3% to the inflation rate by late last year. The Federal Reserve has boosted the money supply by 40% since the start of the pandemic, helping fuel price surges across the board.

Top Democrats, Staffers Fume Over White House's Chaotic Impotence



Democrats are livid over the Biden administration's tepid response to several recent US Supreme Court decisions which struck devastating blows to the party's core tenets; abortion and gun control.

For example, former "Will & Grace" star Debra Messing was among dozens of celebrity Democratic supporters participating in a call with White House aides last Monday to brainstorm a response to the Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.

According to Messing (via CNN), "Messing said she'd gotten Joe Biden elected and wanted to know why she was being asked to do anything at all, yelling that there didn't even seem a point to voting. Others wondered why the call was happening."

After the call, the White House sent a follow-up email with a list of basic talking points and suggested clips of Biden speeches to share on TikTok.

The call, three days after the decision eliminating federal abortion rights, encapsulates the overwhelming sense of frustration among Democrats with Biden. It offers a new window into what many in the President's party describe as a mismanagement permeating the White House. -CNN

According to top Democrats - two dozen of which spoke with CNN (including White House staffers), Biden either isn't acting with - or isn't capable of - the urgency required in the moment, raising questions over 'basic management' abilities.

"Rudderless, aimless and hopeless," said one member of Congress in describing the White House.

As an example of the sheer incompetence, top Biden aides are still wrangling over a response to Roe more than a week after the ruling, despite the draft decision leaking six weeks beforehand.

White House counsel Dana Remus had assured senior aides the Supreme Court wouldn't rule on abortion that day. A White House press aide assigned to the issue was walking to get coffee when the alert hit. Several Democratic leaders privately mocked how the President stood in the foyer of the White House, squinting through his remarks from a teleprompter as demonstrators poured into the streets, making only vague promises of action because he and aides hadn't decided on more. -CNN

Meanwhile, frustrated Democratic politicians say they've reached out to work with Biden on a variety of issues - between specific bills, brainstorming, or outreach - and often never hear back. Potential appointees are left sitting for months for word on whether they'll get jobs, or when the Biden admin will be done vetting them. What's more, the Biden admin rarely sends invitations to events, and 'thank-you calls barely happen.'

Others within the administration are wondering why Biden didn't fire anyone from the West Wing or the FDA over the baby food formula debacle.

Inside the White House, aides are reportedly exhausted from 'feeling forever on red alert,' and dealing with a flood of never-ending crises that seem to just get worse.

Several officials say Biden's tendency to berate advisers when he's displeased with how a situation is being handled or when events go off poorly has trickled down the ranks in the West Wing, leaving several mid-level aides feeling blamed for failings despite lacking any real ability to influence the building's decision-making. That's contributed to some of the recent staff departures, according to people familiar. -CNN

As a result of the chaos and impotence, Democrats worry that midterm elections will be a bloodbath - as the sheer level of ineptitude are "feeding a sense that the President couldn't truly handle the extra complications of a run for reelection in 2024 -- and along the way, reinforcing narratives that he's an old man not fit for the moment."

"There's no fight," another Democrat told CNN. "People understand that a lot of this is out of his hands -- but what you want to see is the President out there swinging."

CNN notes that what little the Biden admin has done (release oil from the SPR, invoking the Defense Production Act to address baby formula shortages, and suggesting a temporary suspension of the federal gas tax) hasn't made a dent; "The baby formula shortage persists, inflation remains high and gas prices, though slightly down from their high, are still hovering close to $5 a gallon."

"It had the appearance of throwing spaghetti at the wall and seeing what sticks," one official said off the record.

Other sources say that the White House is 'bottlenecked' by indecision - with veteran advisers urging Biden to look at the bigger picture vs. focusing on fast responses, while few are trying - and even fewer succeeding - in getting Biden past his 'infamous inability to settle on decisions' on everything from Chinese imports to canceling student loan debt.

Biden has been mulling what to do on student loans for more than a year. White House staff drafted a memo on the topic weeks ago, and a final decision is now being targeted ahead of when the current repayment pause expires on August 31 -- further aggravating progressives who say Biden's indecision is hurting people with debt who are trying to make plans, and losing much of the political benefit he could get from it. -CNN

Biden's defenders argue that he's a scapegoat.

"The country didn't elect Joe Biden because they wanted a Democratic Donald Trump to go out there every day and divide the country more," said former Congressman Cedric Richmond, who served in the West Wing during Biden's first year, adding that Democrats attacking Biden are "scapegoating the President, or distracted and not focusing on what they should be focused on. He saved democracy once by beating a tyrant. He's doing it again, but he doesn't do it by beating his chest."

White House Dodges Questions Over Leaked Audio Proving Joe Lied About Hunter's Foreign Biz Dealings



In yesterday’s White House press briefing, there was an extraordinary moment when White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre refused to discuss a 2018 voicemail from President Biden that showed that the President lied repeatedly in denying ever speaking with Hunter Biden about this foreign dealings.

Jean-Pierre refused to answer a question from Fox News’ Peter Doocy and then refused again to answer a question from RealClearPolitics reporter Philip Wegmann. The rest of the press seemed content with an answer that was not just openly evasive but contemptful of the press. It is continuing evidence of the success of the Biden campaign to get the media to maintain a false narrative that they helped create during the campaign.

As previously discussed, the recording clearly proves that President Biden has lied about his knowledge of these dealings. The audiotape of the President concerned a Times report on Dec. 12, 2018 detailing Hunter’s dealings with Ye Jianming, the head of CEFC China Energy Company. Ye was later arrested amid allegations of economic crimes. Biden associates reportedly worked on the Times to change aspects of the story and President Biden appears to view that effort as successful.

The plan with the Bidens (which included Joe Biden’s brother) specified a proposed 10 percent share for Hunter for “the big guy.” According to Biden associate Tony Bobulinksi, that was a reference to Joe Biden.

The voicemail, discovered on Hunter’s discarded laptop, reveals that Joe Biden was following the stories of his son’s alleged influencing peddling and specifically his Chinese dealings.

In his message, Biden tells Hunter,

“Hey pal, it’s Dad. It’s 8:15 on Wednesday night. If you get a chance, just give me a call. Nothing urgent. I just wanted to talk to you. I thought the article released online, it’s going to be printed tomorrow in the Times, was good. I think you’re clear. And anyway if you get a chance, give me a call, I love you.”

Some of us have written for two years that Biden’s denial of knowledge is patently false. Indeed, it is baffling how Attorney General Garland can ignore the myriad of references to Joe Biden in refusing to appoint a special counsel.

Doocy asked the obvious question now that we have an actual audiotape of the President: “Why is there a voicemail of the president talking to his son about his overseas business dealings if the president has said he’s never spoken to his son about his overseas business dealings?”

Despite clearly contradicting the President, Jean-Pierre declared “Well, first I’ll say that what the president said stands. So if he - that’s what the president said, that is what stands.” Such an absurd response is only possible when you know that most of the media will go along with the evasion.

Doocy followed up “He’s leaving a voicemail about a New York Times article concerning Hunter Biden’s business dealings and he says, ‘I think you’re clear.” How is that not him talking to his son about his overseas business dealings?”

Jean-Pierre then dismissed further questions, saying “We’re not, from this podium - I’m not going to talk about alleged materials from the laptop.” When pressed again, she said “I am not going to talk about alleged materials from the laptop. Peter, I refer you to his son’s representatives.”

She repeated that position with Wegmann who appeared the only other journalist even remotely interested in whether the President lied repeatedly about an influence peddling scheme run by his son.

Notably, neither reporter was looking for a response from Hunter or their representative. The tape captured President Biden’s voice not Hunter’s voice. Indeed, Hunter previously contradicted his own father and said that he did discuss dealings with his father.

There is no plausible reason why the President would not be willing to answer a question about his own statement captured on audiotape. He is not denying that it is his voice, which appears obvious. He simply will not answer a question about whether he lied during the campaign and repeatedly as president.

Again, this is only possible when you have the media in your pocket. Could you imagine if this was Trump caught on a tape and refusing to answer a question about the content. For example, the media has Trump’s call to Georgia officials on a virtual continual coverage loop.

I previously wrote a column on the one year anniversary of the Hunter Biden laptop story that marveled at the success of the Biden family in making the scandal vanish before that 2020 election. It was analogized to Houdini making his 10,000-pound elephant Jennie disappear in his act. The Biden trick however occurred live before an audience of millions. The value of involving the media in the original trick is that it invests reporters in the illusion. It is like calling audience members to the stage to assist in the performance. Reporters have to insist that there was nothing to see or they have to admit to being part of the deception.

The problem is that the media is now obviously concerned that the Democrats could lose the White House as well as Congress. They have begun to openly criticize Biden and even press him to clear the path for a successor. While recognizing the false narrative will be embarrassing, the Biden White House may be faced with a media more concerned with a possible GOP win in the coming elections. The risk that that journalists may decide to see the elephant.

“Peter Doocy asked about a recent poll that found 88 percent of people think the U.S. is "on the wrong track."

Jean-Pierre responded that the White House knows the American people are "feeling" the high costs, but assured reporters that the U.S. economy is doing well.

"We stronger economically than we have been in history," she said, pointing to decreasing unemployment numbers and new jobs creation.

She blames the high costs on Russian President Vladimir Putin's "price hike" amid the war in Ukraine and the "once in a generation pandemic."”

"We Are Not Tacos": Hispanic Association Slams Jill Biden For Comparing Latinos To 'Breakfast Tacos'



Hispanics are livid after First Lady Jill Biden compared them to "breakfast tacos" during a Monday speech to the 2022 UnidosUS Annual Conference held in Texas, where she opined on Hispanics' "Quest for Equity."

During her speech, Biden said that "the diversity of this community, as distinct as the bodegas of the Bronx, as beautiful as the blossoms of Miami and as unique as the breakfast tacos here in San Antonio, is your strength."

This did not sit well with Latinos, who spent the day dragging her on Twitter. It also caught the attention of the National Association of Hispanic Journalists (NAHJ), which said in a statement: "We are not tacos."

"Using breakfast tacos to try to demonstrate the uniqueness of Latinos in San Antonio demonstrates a lack of cultural knowledge and sensitivity to the diversity of Latinos in the region," reads the statement.

"Our heritage as Latinos is shaped by a variety of diasporas, cultures and food traditions, and should not be reduced to a stereotype."

Memes and hot takes abound: (See link provided to see these hilarious vids!)

Remember kids...everytime the word LatinX is mentioned the GOP gets another supporter!


Getting back to your question though...not very good. Muy malo.

"Micahel LaRosa sent out a tweet on Tuesday morning saying that Biden apologizes if “her words conveyed anything but pure admiration and love for the Latino community.”

A few odd things. For one, it lacks the “x” the left loves to attach to the Latino community in order to make the term more “inclusive.” It’s a term the majority of the Latino community expressly rejects, so I can’t help but wonder if the lack of the “x” this time is the left’s way of doing a small bit of damage control.

Secondly, why didn’t the First Lady say this herself?

I feel like this was a message she could have delivered herself to a nearby reporter, yet she relegates this apology to a throwaway tweet by one of her underlings? That doesn’t actually convey regret, it conveys annoyance or cowardice. Either way, it’s not much of an apology."

Again with the hating latkes...

The fam met the FIL for breakfast this weekend (lord help me), and a ?ten? year old at the table next to us ordered what he thought was some special pancake. What he got was a plate with a giant latke (menu called it a "rich potato pancake" or something). He covered it with syrup and tasted it, but was not pleased and I overheard his dad asking to send it back in favor of a normal pancake.

Poor poor latke....

WSJ: The baby-formula shortage is getting ... worse?



A White House website didn’t solve it. Airlift flights from Europe didn’t fix it. Nine months after the New York Times first reported the shortages and three months after Joe Biden acknowledged he finally learned of it, retail inventory of baby formula dropped to its lowest level in July, the Wall Street Journal reports this morning:

Availability of powdered formula products in U.S. stores earlier this month dropped to the lowest level so far this year, with about 30% of products out of stock for the week ended July 3, according to the market-research firm IRI. While availability improved slightly last week, out-of-stock levels remain higher than in recent months, and shortages remain acute in states including Alaska, Utah and Wyoming, IRI data showed.

At the same time, consumers are finding fewer choices of brands, sizes or formats of formula on grocery-store shelves as the variety of available products shrinks. U.S. supermarkets over the four weeks ended June 26 sold an average of 11 different formula products per store weekly, according to IRI, compared with a weekly average of 24 from 2018 to 2021.

Keith Milligan, controller of Piggly Wiggly stores in Georgia and Alabama, said his stores are carrying five of the 30 formula products they typically sell, compared with about 10 in late spring. Store shelves aren’t empty, but have many gaps, Mr. Milligan said, and customers are purchasing what is available.

“It has not improved at all,” Mr. Milligan said of Piggly Wiggly’s formula supply.

What about Joe Biden’s touted airlifts of supply from Europe? That may have helped take the edge off, but that’s all. The amount transported covers less than a week of US consumption:

In May, the White House directed the Defense Department to use its contracts with commercial air-cargo lines to bring formula from other countries into the U.S. The effort, known as Operation Fly Formula, by July 17 will have flown in baby formula on nearly 50 flights from places such as Europe, Australia and Mexico, and transported the equivalent of more than 55 million 8-ounce bottles to the U.S., according to the administration.

U.S. consumers typically purchase enough powdered formula to make about 65 million 8-ounce bottles a week, according to IRI data.

What gives? First off, Abbott hasn’t gotten its production facility back on line yet after having it shut down by the FDA for months over a contested contamination claim. They restarted production recently, but storms in Michigan produced flooding that required Abbott to close it down again. They are now producing a relatively low output of a badly needed specialty formula for infants with digestive problems, the WSJ reports, but won’t restart Similac production at scale for another several weeks. Abbott is the prime contractor for the food-stamp program’s baby formula program, which means their absence is hitting low-income families hardest.

The group that manufactures Enfamil says they are trying to ramp up domestic production and plan to import more formula from Europe. The problem with that is that their import aims — 66 million 8-ounce bottle equivalents — is again only a week’s worth of US consumption. And that import boost will get stretched out over the next four months, making the market impact minimal.

Joe Biden made a big deal about the airlifts and his use of the Defense Production Act, but the former was more show than substance and the latter even more so. The problem wasn’t a lack of desire to produce, but a lack of capacity and a difficult time getting the precursors. The futility of that action — which Biden took after first trying a website for a response — has been made clear in the two months since Biden signed the DPA order. The existing supply-chain crises, which have largely remained unresolved, is hampering formula production and the DPA isn’t going to solve those issues.

Finally, the Biden administration could have taken immediate steps to prevent this issue from getting worse once it appeared in October, and especially after the FDA shut down the Abbott facility in late January. Biden and his team could have lifted the tariffs on imports of baby formula and ordered the FDA to approve the labeling of European-produced formula, a point that has nothing to do with its nutritional value or safety. They could still take these steps, which would then allow those manufacturers to regularly ship their product to the US for sale rather than have the US Air Force transport it on an emergency basis to provide a drop-in-the-bucket level of assistance to hungry infants and panicked parents.

Instead, Biden’s doing as little as possible while hoping no one notices that he hasn’t solved the crisis, or even dented it. That’s been Biden’s modus operandi for eighteen months now, and … it’s working about as well as his website solution to the baby formula crisis.

Baby formula. Can't even manage that "crisis"? I suppose they thought they'd starve em out for surviving the birthing process. THIS is the DNC in action.

New York Times questions President Biden’s ‘Boundaries’ of ‘the Presidency’




When even the New York Times writes a report showing concern for the capabilities and mental acuity of President Joe Biden, you know we are beyond repair.


Over the weekend, the New York Times reported they worry that Biden will “trip on a wire” because of the way he shuffles as he walks, and are concerned with his repeated gaffes.

The report title reads “At 79, Biden is Testing the Boundaries of Age and the Presidency.”

“I do feel it’s inappropriate to seek that office after you’re 80 or in your 80s,” said David Gergen, a presidential adviser dating back to the Nixon era. “I have just turned 80 and I have found over the last two or three years I think it would have been unwise for me to try to run any organization. You’re not quite as sharp as you once were.”

The Times report noted that in public, Biden will often lose his train of thought or struggle to recall details.

He’s referred to Vice President Kamala Harris as “President Harris” several times and still stumbles over his words, despite overcoming a stutter from childhood.

According to the report, White House aides say they don’t carve out accommodations for Biden, but privately, they try to protect his weekends away in Delaware.

Biden’s trip to the Middle East on Tuesday was originally scheduled immediately after he traveled last month to the NATO and the G7 summits. The trip was split up over fears it could unnecessarily tax the president, the report said.

Biden’s evening hours are limited and he has given less than half as many news conferences or interviews as some of his predecessors. “Biden has given 38 interviews, compared to 116 for Trump, 198 for Barack Obama, 71 for George W. Bush and 75 for Bill Clinton, the Times said.”

But Biden has taken questions more often after a speech or other event — 290 times, compared to Trump’s 213 and Obama’s 64. However, Biden’s aides often need to step in to end Biden’s response to questions.

1...Biden's train of Thought has been derailed DECADES ago!

2...If traveling in Air Force One with a full entourage nullifies anyone from doing anything...they're NOT FIT!

3...Thank God for the Easter Bunny and Dr. "Taco" Jill???

“In his first year in office, Biden did just 22 formal sit-downs, compared to Donald Trump's 92 and Barack Obama's 156, according to data from Towson University's White House Transition Project.

The press has taken notice of Biden’s lack of availability for sit-down interviews, as Politico published a piece last year headlined, "Why Biden's not doing interviews," which noted he conducted more formal interviews as vice president than he has through the same period of his current gig.”

Of course he takes more questions, because the press asking them are hand-picked to toss fluff at him, the one guy that doesn’t is called a ‘stupid SOB’ for asking an important question about the economy “Do you think inflation is a political liability ahead of the midterms?” Who is the stupid SOB now?

Biden Was Fed Pills to Function During Campaign, Supervised by Dr. Jill; Before Dosing Biden Was ‘Like a Small Child’: Tucker Carlson Source

By Kristinn Taylor
Published July 16, 2022 at 2:10am

Quote:
Joe Biden’s cognitive function was so far gone that he was fed pills by staff supervised by his wife Jill to be able to function during the 2020 presidential campaign–and still is to this day, according to a report Friday by Fox News Channel host Tucker Carlson.

Tucker Carlson: “How did he manage to get through the campaign? Well, it turned out, we learned later his staff, supervised by Dr. Jill, his wife, was giving him pills before every public appearance–checking the time and at a certain hour giving him a dose of something. Now it’s not a guess, we’re not making that up. We’ve spoken directly to someone who was there and saw it happen multiple times. Now, before taking the medications this person said, Biden was quote ‘Like a small child. You could not communicate with him, he changed completely because he was on drugs and he clearly still is on drugs.’ Someone’s pushing, we don’t know what those drugs are. We should know.”

Fist Bumps and Failure: Joe Biden Begs Saudis to Pump More Oil — Saudis Tell Joe Biden to Pound Sand

By Jim Hoft
Published July 16, 2022 at 7:50am

Quote:
Joe Biden was on a mission.

The Fist-Bumper in Chief flew to Saudi Arabia to beg the monarchy to pump more oil.

Joe Biden does not want the US to pump more oil. That would make too much sense. No, Joe Biden wants hostile regimes to provide the US with oil.

It wasn’t that long ago that the US was an oil exporter and gas was under $2.50 per gallon. But all that changed after Joe Biden took office.

On Saturday the Saudi Minister of State told CNN that the regime refused to commit to boosting oil production.

Sorry, Joe. You’re on your own.

Place Where Biden Face-Planted Off Bike Is Named 'Brandon Falls' On Google Maps



The place where Joe Biden face planted into the concrete falling off his bike last month has been named as ‘Brandon Falls’ on Google Maps.

Someone has managed to place a landmark in the Delaware location, naming it after the infamous ‘Lets go Brandon’ chant, which was initiated after the White House claimed Nascar fans were not chanting ‘F*ck Joe Biden’ when they totally were.

At time of writing, ‘Brandon Falls’ is still listed as a ‘historical landmark’ on Google Maps:

There is also a bicycle shop at Brandon Falls:

People have even left reviews of the place:

As we highlighted yesterday, people at Brandon Falls and beyond are reenacting the historical moment and labelling it #bidening or #BidenBikeChallenge:

This will never get old.

That was so the President and his son as well as several senator's kids could get paid.
