Suspected Terrorists Who Crossed Border Into United States May Have Been Released: Mayorkas

Suspected Terrorists Who Crossed Border Into United States May Have Been Released: Mayorkas

Some of the 42 illegal immigrants who were arrested by U.S. border agents and identified as suspected terrorists may have been released into the United States, Homeland Security Secretary Alejandryo Mayorkas said on May 4.

“Some may be placed in removal proceedings. Some may be placed in criminal custody. Some may be cooperating with law enforcement. Some may be downgraded from the terrorist rating,” Mayorkas told the Senate Homeland & Governmental Affairs Committee in Washington.

Mayorkas said officials in his agency know the “precise disposition” of each of the 42 suspected terrorists but declined to share that information in a public setting.

Instead, he offered to give a classified briefing to Sen. Rob Portman (R-Ohio), who had been questioning him.

“I look forward to getting that information,” Portman said.

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) recently revealed that 42 people on the terror watchlist “attempted to enter the United States illegally” and were arrested by border agents between Jan. 20, 2021 and March 2022. The watchlist is maintained by the FBI, which says people on it are “reasonably suspected to be involved in terrorism (or related activities).”

In a hearing in late April, Mayorkas said he did not know whether any of the terrorists had been released into the United States, triggering criticism from Republicans.

In his opening statement, Portman, the ranking member of the Senate panel, described himself as shocked when he learned about the number of suspected terrorists apprehended.

Other Republicans during the hearing on Wednesday also touched on the issue.

The 42 “are the ones we know you caught; we don’t know how many you didn’t,” Sen. Rick Scott (R-Fla.) told Mayorkas.

Sen. Gary Peters (D-Mich.), the panel’s chairman, took a different angle regarding the watchlist.

Peters said Arab-Americans, including those in the state he represents, have “long endured lengthy and intrusive screening when traveling” and noted that Biden while campaigning in 2020 promised to order DHS to review how people are placed on the watchlist and the no-fly list to make sure that the processes “do not have an adverse impact on individuals or groups based on national origin, race, religion or ethnicity” and to “improve the process to remove names, when justified, from these lists.”

“Can you provide an update on the progress of your review and when you expect changes to be implemented?” Peters asked.

Mayorkas said the work is underway but that he could not provide any further information at this time.

Biden’s DHS Confirms Plans to Siphon Healthcare Services Away from Veterans to Illegal Aliens at Border

President Joe Biden’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has seemingly confirmed plans to siphon healthcare services away from American veterans treated at Veterans Affairs (VA) to illegal aliens arriving at the United States-Mexico border.

During a hearing before the House Homeland Security Committee on Wednesday, DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas confirmed to Rep. Ashley Hinson (R-IA) that the Biden administration is in talks with VA officials to potentially transfer doctors and nurses to the southern border to treat illegal aliens arriving every day in record-breaking numbers.

“Is the department planning to reallocate resources, doctors and nurses, from our VA system intended to care for our veterans to illegal immigrants at our southern border?” Hinson asked.

Mayorkas responded, stating that “the resources that the medical personnel from the Veterans Administration would allocate to this effort is under the judgment of the secretary of Veterans Affairs, who prioritizes the interests of veterans above all others for very noble and correct.”

When Hinson asked if Mayorkas had any conversations about the plan, he responded, “I have not personally, but of course, our teams, our personnel have. and I’d be very pleased to follow up with you.”

The remarks come as Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) had sought clarification on reports that the Biden administration was looking to siphon doctors and nurses away from the VA toward illegal aliens at the border.

“In the words of one [Customs and Border Protection] official, ‘We’re going to take medical services away from people that really deserve that, who went to combat … to give free medical attention to illegal migrants,’” Hawley wrote in a letter to Mayorkas.

Already, Americans are forced to subsidize medical care for illegal aliens to the tune of $18.5 billion annually. Last year alone, Americans footed the bill for more than $316 million in medical care for border crossers and illegal aliens who were detained in Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) custody.

UPDATED 12:00 PM PT – Thursday, April 28, 2022

President Joe Biden said he’s sending Congress a request for more security and humanitarian funding for Ukraine. During a press conference at the White House Thursday, Biden said in total he’s asking for an additional $33 billion for the war-torn country as the conflict continues for more than two months.

Twenty billion dollars will be used for military assistance, $8 billion for economic assistance and $3 billion for humanitarian aid, which is expected to last through September 30. The President stressed the aid will help Ukraine continue defending it’s sovereignty against Russian aggression.

“Basically, we’re out of money and so that’s why today, in order to sustain Ukraine as it continues to fight, I’m sending Congress a supplemental budget request, ” Biden stateted. “It’s going to keep weapons and ammunition flowing without interruption to the brave Ukrainian fighters, and continue delivering economic humanitarian assistance to the Ukrainian people.”

Biden also is sending a proposal to Congress to use funds from seized assets of Russian oligarchs to help Ukraine fight Vladimir Putin’s invasion.

Creepy: Biden Goes “Off Script” To Tell Teachers That Kids Are “Yours When You’re In The Classroom”

Creepy: Biden Goes “Off Script” To Tell Teachers That Kids Are “Yours When You’re In The Classroom”

While speaking at a White House event for National and State Teachers of the Year, Joe Biden told those gathered that children don’t belong to parents when they are in the classroom, and instead are the property of teachers.

Watch:

Biden addressed recent efforts in Florida and elsewhere to keep sexualisation, gender theory and critical race theory out of classrooms, declaring that teachers should not be “the target of the culture wars.”

Before he went on to make the creepy comments, Biden admitted that he ‘wasn’t supposed to be speaking’ and was going “off script” much to the concern of his staff:

Biden AGAIN repeated a made up story about “teaching” as a “professor” at the University of Pennsylvania, which never happened, as well as changing his never ending story on why he went into politics, before his brain finally froze up and he just began talking complete gibberish:

CDC Extends Federal Mask Mandate

International Airport in Phoenix, Ariz., on Dec. 18, 2021. (Spencer Platt/Getty Images) The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has extended the federal mask mandate for transportation for two weeks, citing the small recent increase in COVID-19 cases.

CDC Extends Federal Mask Mandate

The order, which was to expire on April 18, will remain in place until May 3 to let officials at the agency assess whether the BA.2 virus subvariant drives a fresh wave of cases. “In order to assess the potential impact the rise of cases has on severe disease, including hospitalizations and deaths, and health care system capacity, the CDC order will remain in place at this time,” the CDC said in a statement.

The order was first imposed in January 2021 and applies to trains, airplanes, and other modes of transportation under purview of federal officials, as well as transportation hubs such as airports. The CDC has repeatedly extended the order, despite growing opposition to the move.

Leaders of 10 U.S. airlines in a letter last month urged the Biden administration to rescind the order, noting that COVID-19 metrics have plunged and that authorities across the country have rolled back or eliminated restrictions.

Separately, groups of pilots and flight attendants filed lawsuits against the CDC and its parent agency, alleging the mask order is unlawful.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, a Republican, said in a statement that the latest extension “simply prolongs the misery that passengers and flight attendants are being forced to endure.” “This is not evidence-based, but simply more COVID theater,” he said.

The CDC’s move came after it said it would allow the expiration of Title 42, a pandemic-era order that enabled quick expulsion of illegal immigrants because they might carry the virus that causes COVID-19.CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky said the action was taken because COVID-19 cases fell by over 95 percent between January and March and because more of the population has some form of immunity from vaccination and/or prior infection.According to data reported to the CDC, about 36,300 COVID-19 cases were recorded on April 11. That was a slight increase from the week prior.COVID-19-related hospitalizations and deaths are also relatively flat after bottoming out following January’s peaks.Some experts pin the rise in cases on BA.2, a subvariant of the Omicron strain of the CCP virus, which causes COVID-19.White House COVID-19 coordinator Ashish Jha had said earlier this week that a mask mandate extension was “absolutely on the table” but that it would be up to the CDC whether to allow the mandate to expire or extend it once again

Pentagon reveals weapons to be sent to Ukraine

The $800 million package includes cannons, radars, armored vehicles and helicopters.


Washington is expanding the range of weapons deliveries to Ukraine to include artillery, armored vehicles and helicopters, the Pentagon revealed on Wednesday. US President Joe Biden credited the $2.6 billion in weapons he has supplied to Kiev since February with defeating what he called the Russian plan to “conquer and control” Ukraine.

“The steady supply of weapons the United States and its allies and partners have provided to Ukraine has been critical in sustaining its fight against the Russian invasion. It has helped ensure that Putin failed in his initial war aims to conquer and control Ukraine. We cannot rest now,” Biden said in a statement released by the White House, after his call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

In addition to more of the “highly effective” Javelin anti-tank missiles and Stinger anti-aircraft rockets, the US will now send “new capabilities tailored to the wider assault” it expects Russian forces to launch in eastern Ukraine, Biden said.


The Pentagon on Wednesday afternoon provided some details about the new aid, which is valued at $800 million – about $50 million more than estimated in leaks to the media on Tuesday.

HERE WE GO AGAIN…

The corrupt Genocide CDC, Plandemic-Pusher’s, are at it again… as always… using any excuse they can, whether it makes sense or whether science agrees or not have come to another nefarious conclusion about masks mandates.

Here’s the kicker… their heinous excuse this time is to gather more information and understanding of the BA.2 variant of the coronavirus.

Can someone please explain this to me?

Here’s the article:

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention plans to extend the federal transportation mask mandate for another 15 days to early May, according to a Biden administration official familiar with the decision.

The announcement is expected as early as Wednesday afternoon from the CDC. The mandate is now set to expire on May 3. The Associated Press was first to report the extension.

The administration official familiar with the decision told CNN the goal of the extension was to gather more information and understanding of the BA.2 variant of the coronavirus.

“Since early April, there have been increases in the 7-day moving average of cases in the US. In order to assess the potential impact, the rise of cases has on severe disease, including hospitalizations and deaths, and health care system capacity, CDC is recommending that TSA extend the security directive to enforce mask use on public transportation and transportation hubs for 15 days, through May 3, 2022,” the official told CNN.

The official added, “This will give additional time for the CDC to learn more about BA.2 and make a best-informed decision.”

The US is now averaging 38,345 new Covid-19 cases per day, according to data from Johns Hopkins University. Cases are trending up in more than half of states — including all but one state in the Northeast, Delaware. But the daily rate is still one of the lowest since mid-July.

According to the latest estimates from the CDC, BA.2 caused 86% of new Covid-19 cases nationwide last week.

The mandate , which requires masks on public transportation such as planes, trains, buses — as well as in hubs like airports and bus terminalshad been set to expire on April 18. White House Covid-19 Response Coordinator Dr. Ashish Jha told CNN on Monday that the CDC planned to share a scientific framework this week for the federal transportation mask mandate.

This is a breaking story and will be updated. Source: (CNN)

Now that we have the masks thing cleared up go the next two weeks at least let me take this to another level.

if you’re one of those who’s thinking hasn’t quite caught up with some of your relatives, friends or coworkers or the rest of us, I would really like you to consider adjusting your thinking “outside the box” a little bit for a moment because you deserve to know and understand the truth like the rest of us. If society as a whole doesn’t start to grasp the entire truth of what has been happening and has happened, things are not going to turn out very well for any of us. This much I am convinced.

In case you missed it!

Just in case you missed the “venomous” conclusion regarding the origin of the coronavirus you might want to hear the latest findings. I was blown away! Videos discussion’s centered around the research findings of Dr. Bryan Ardis (www.ardisantidote.com), the real origin of the virus, the goal of this Plandemic, and who is behind it!

The plandemic continues, but its origins are still a nefarious mystery. How did the world get sick, how did Covid really spread, and did the Satanic elite tell the world about this bioweapon ahead of time? Dr. Bryan Ardis (www.ardisantidote.com) has unveiled a shocking connection between this pandemic and the eternal battle of good and evil which began in the Garden of Eden.

BREAKING: Biden Announces End of Important Immigration Law

President Joe Biden, in a widely expected but nevertheless highly disappointing to many anti-illegal immigration activists move, decided to end Title 42, an immigration law implemented by the Trump Administration that gave immigration authorities the ability to more easily and quickly get rid of illegal immigrants. Just the News, reporting on that move, notes that:

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention announced Friday the end of enforcement of Title 42, a decades-old federal law impose by the Trump administration to limit immigration to stop the spread of COVID-19 during the pandemic.

The announcement was widely expected and will be effective May 23, a date that was also expected.

The CDC, the agency technically responsible for the law because it related to public health and the pandemic, announced the end of Title 42 by saying in a statement that:

In consultation with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), this termination will be implemented on May 23, 2022, to enable DHS time to implement appropriate COVID-19 mitigation protocols, such as scaling up a program to provide COVID-19 vaccinations to migrants and prepare for resumption of regular migration under Title 8.

“After considering current public health conditions and an increased availability of tools to fight COVID-19 (such as highly effective vaccines and therapeutics), the CDC Director has determined that an Order suspending the right to introduce migrants into the United States is no longer necessary.

Team Biden, for its part, argued that ending the measure would not mean that illegal immigrants would be able to stay in the US, arguing in a press conference conducted by Kate Beddingfield that:

To be clear, most individuals who crossed the border without legal authorization will be promptly placed into removal proceedings and if they are unable to establish a legal basis to remain in the United States, they’ll be expeditiously removed.

“As a reminder, economic need and flight from generalized violence is not a basis for asylum, but rather asylum is for those with a well-founded fear of persecution on a protected ground.

Biden’s lackey can claim whatever she wants, but illegal immigrants themselves don’t seem to believe her. They, supposedly in desperate need of help but still somehow able to stay up to date on changes to US policy, have been massing around the border in expectation of Title 42 being done away with. As I reported a few days ago:

[A]ccording to Axios, there are not only perhaps 170,000 migrants waiting to head to the border once Title 42 ends, but there are also perhaps 25,000 migrants waiting along the US-Mexico border to cross once it’ll be harder to deport them.

So, while Team Biden claims that getting rid of a major tool for removing illegals won’t prove deleterious to the anti-illegal immigration mission, a tool Yahoo reports has been used about 1.7 million times in the Biden presidency, the illegal immigrants who are risking the border crossing seem to think otherwise. That means, at the very least, that the Border Patrol officer bravely manning the border despite Biden’s bumbling could soon have an even larger problem to deal with.

Joe Biden told a huge lie about Hunter Biden that just came back to bite him

The fallout from the “laptop from hell” scandal continues to spread.

Joe Biden is now entangled in this mess.

And that’s because Joe Biden told a huge lie about Hunter Biden that just came back to bite him.

During the final Presidential debate, Donald Trump blasted Joe Biden over reports that his son Hunter raked in millions from companies in Communist China.

Joe Biden claimed that was false.

“My son has not made money in terms of this thing about, what are you talking about, China,” Biden stated.

This was the same debate where Joe Biden lied to the American people and falsely claimed the emails on Hunter Biden’s laptop – which formed the basis for the New York Post’s reporting on alleged Biden family corruption – was the product of Russian disinformation.

NBC’ Kristen Welker asked White House Communications Director Kate Bedingfield about reports in the Washington Post that a Communist Chinese-linked energy company CEFC China Energy paid a business run by Hunter Biden and Joe Biden’s brother, James, nearly $5 million.

Unbelievably, Bedingfield stood by the lie.

“We absolutely stand by the President’s comment,” Bedingfield answered.

The Washington Post reported:

While many aspects of Hunter Biden’s financial arrangement with CEFC China Energy have been previously reported and were included in a Republican-led Senate report from 2020, a Washington Post review confirmed many of the key details and found additional documents showing Biden family interactions with Chinese executives.

Over the course of 14 months, the Chinese energy conglomerate and its executives paid $4.8 million to entities controlled by Hunter Biden and his uncle, according to government records, court documents and newly disclosed bank statements, as well as emails contained on a copy of a laptop hard drive that purportedly once belonged to Hunter Biden.

The damn broke on the Hunter Biden laptop story.

In addition to the Washington Post, the New York Times, CNN, and CBS all reported that Hunter Biden faced an intensifying and expanding federal investigation.

CNN even reported there was a good chance Hunter Biden may face criminal charges.

The lie Joe Biden’s campaign told about Hunter Biden’s laptop being “Russian disinformation” looks more ridiculous by the day.

And it also appears that there are forces within the Democrat Party and the government who now leak details about the investigation into Hunter Biden to the press to embarrass Joe Biden.

Biden’s falling poll numbers leave many on the Left uncertain if Biden could win a General Election in 2024.

And Biden’s “allies” may be feeding the press stories about Hunter Biden as a means of forcing Joe to withdraw from the 2024 race.

Statement by Donald J. Trump, 45th President of the United States of America on ‘Conspiracy to Defraud the United States by Democrats Rigging the …

In the following statement, the 45th President goes over things in Arizona, Georgia, and other areas where he says the 2020 election was a conspiracy by the Democrats to rig the election, and the fake news media and Unselect Committee are covering it up. 

You can read the full statement below. 

The actual conspiracy to defraud the United States was the Democrats rigging the Election, and the Fake News Media and the Unselect Committee covering it up. Few things could be more fraudulent, or met with more irregularities, than the Presidential Election of 2020. They refuse to cover the facts, such as just this week the special counsel in Wisconsin called for the decertification of the 2020 Election because of massive illegality, including election bribery, and the preying on the elderly for votes, which resulted in fraud of “95-100 percent turnout,” an impossibility, in at least 91 nursing homes. This is true with many other states, especially swing states. In Arizona, 204,430 mail-in ballots had mismatched signatures that were never sent to review, and 740,000 mail-in ballots had broken chain of custody, all far more necessary than the votes needed, 10,457, for “President Trump to win.” In Georgia, over 240 ballot harvesters have been identified in an illegal operation spanning multiple swing states, all caught on video.

The evidence is monumental but the Unselect Committee of politically partisan hacks, and someone who had a steaming hot affair with a Chinese spy, hides the facts. Judges and even justices of the United States Supreme Court, are afraid to even look, as was the Attorney General of the United States, who was so petrified of being held in contempt or being impeached by the Democrats, which they were constantly threatening him with, that he was virtually a broken man who allowed for the systemic violation of election laws and other things to take place.

The reason for January 6th was that millions of people in our Country know the Election was Rigged and Stolen, and Nancy Pelosi refused to put the requested 10,000+ troops in the Capitol three days earlier, as strongly recommended by me. She didn’t like “the look.”

The Unselect Committee’s sole goal is to try to prevent President Trump, who is leading by large margins in every poll, from running again for president, if I so choose. By so doing they are destroying democracy as we know it. Their lies and Marxist tactics against political opponents will not stop the truth, or the biggest political movement, Make America Great Again/America First, in the history of our Country. And now we have a war waging in Ukraine that would have never happened, record-setting inflation, an embarrassingly poorly executed withdrawal from Afghanistan, and an economy that is teetering, at best. All because of a corrupt Election result.

The Brief: Biden Is To Blame For Inflation And Driving America Off An Economic Cliff


Gregg is joined by Michael O’Neill, assistant general counsel at Landmark Legal Foundation

A true leader has the courage and humility to admit their own mistakes. A coward blames others.

Since the first day of his presidency, Joe Biden has waged all-out war on our domestic energy industry, crippling our nation’s ability to provide the needed resources to sustain our own economy. It was a grievous mistake that has caused prices to soar and left consumers struggling financially.

Americans are smart. They know that Biden is responsible. 70 percent disapprove of his handling of inflation and gas prices, according to a new ABC News/Ipsos poll. It is a damning indictment of Biden’s policies, if not his incompetence.

Instead of having the fortitude to admit that his misguided green agenda badly damaged the U.S. economy, Biden blames Putin. And our nation’s oil companies. And OPEC. And bankers on Wall Street. And transportation companies. And COVID. And the kid who kicked the cat.

Never once has Biden looked in the mirror for a moment of self-reflection. He is incapable of recognizing that he was wrong in his decision to reverse our nation’s energy independence.

With stubborn arrogance, Biden ignored all the warnings by economists and energy experts who rang the alarm over his debilitating energy policies.

They correctly predicted that America would be left vulnerable to an unstable global marketplace…resulting in an inflationary spiral that would push us to the precipice of recession.

But Joe refused to listen. Now, he blames everyone but himself. In refusing to accept responsibility as a true leader would, Biden is a profile in cowardice.

When Biden took office a little more than a year ago, the U.S. was energy independent and a net exporter of oil. With the stroke of a pen just hours after his inauguration, our new president put an end to it.

Biden signed the following Executive Order: “The Secretary of the Interior shall pause new oil and natural gas leases on public lands or in offshore waters.” Drilling and production on hundreds of thousands of rich oil and gas fields came to a screeching halt.

Biden also shut down the Keystone XL pipeline that would bring over 800,000 barrels of oil to market every single day. He ordered other pipelines capped.

He then targeted oil and gas companies with punitive regulations that made it difficult, if not impossible, to maintain a consistent flow of energy to support our bustling economy. Making matters worse, Biden directed the EPA to raise the costs on power plants which began to reduce their output as a direct result.

Biden has tried to regulate oil and gas companies out of business. All on his own, he engineered an energy deficit in America. The U.S. was forced to turn elsewhere for its needs —Saudi Arabia, Russia, Canada, and Mexico. Of course, importing petroleum added its own exorbitant expense that was passed on to the consumer.

Fast forward one year and America is in the death grip of an energy and inflation crisis. Gasoline prices at the pumps are at record highs. That has driven up the price for other goods such as food, clothing and other manufactured products that are influenced by increased fuel costs. Overall inflation has skyrocketed…depressing economic growth.

Suffice it to say that Biden’s approach to energy has been an economic disaster for Americans. He has suffocated economic productivity in America and steered us into a financial abyss that will be exceedingly difficult to survive.

But Biden insists he’s not to blame. Look…It’s simply not true that my administration or my policies are holding back energy production,” he vented.

Biden isn’t the only one who’s blatantly lying about what he did.

Joe is in a chronic state of denial.  He keeps claiming that Putin is the boogeyman to blame.

His White House flacks say that the current inflationary crisis proves that Joe’s green agenda is working. That’s right. Press Secretary Jen Psaki actually said that. Not to be outdone, the president’s chief of staff, Ron Klain, dismissed it as “a high-class problem.”

Forget that low-income and middle-class Americans are the hardest hit. They can now scarcely afford the gasoline that gets them to work so they can put food on the family table and keep a roof over their heads. The Biden administration is about as tone-deaf as they come.

Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg and Vice President Kamala Harris professed they had the answer for what ails America. They held a splashy news conference to announce an expensive plan to develop electric public buses. But in the meantime, they urged everyone to give up their cars and trucks in favor of expensive EVs. Harris asked her audience to “imagine a future” with only electric vehicles. “That’s why we are here today —because we have the ability to see what can be, unburdened by what has been, and then to make the possible actually happen,” she waxed in her dreamy state.

Well, Kamala…imagine this: more than 60 percent of Americans live paycheck to paycheck. They can barely cobble together the cash to fill up their gas tanks. They can’t possibly afford to buy a pricey electric vehicle.

The average transaction price for an EV is roughly $60,000, according to the most recent Kelly Blue Book data. Yes, there are a few cheaper ones…but they’re small, hard to come by, and cannot accommodate a large family. But even those cars are well out of the price range for most Americans who just don’t have the money to fork over.

Harris and Buttigieg don’t know any of that because they live a life of privilege courtesy of taxpayers.  Their transportation is free.  They travel in style and luxury.  So does Joe Biden.  They have no clue what it’s like to hold down a real job and make ends meet when the monthly bills come due.

This invites another important question: when you plug in your EV (assuming you can afford one), where do you think that electricity comes from? It comes from the nation’s power grid, much of which is derived from the very fossil fuels that the Biden administration is waging war against.

Biden, Harris and so many other climate activists seem to think that they can wave a magic wand or flip a switch and poof! —we can suddenly transition to an environmentally sustainable economy with nothing but renewable green energy.

Here’s a reality check. It doesn’t exist. We don’t have the capacity, infrastructure, and technology to accomplish it. We don’t have the ability to produce, capture, and transport enough green energy to supply even a quarter of the country. I wish we did, but we don’t. And we won’t have it for at least another generation, if not longer.

We have made steady progress in scientific achievements that have advanced wind, solar and other renewable energy sources. But they still amount to only 20 percent of our nation’s electricity. And that’s the maximum output that our systems can process. In the meantime, demands for energy continue to grow as our society continues to develop.

None of this is a remedy for the economic catastrophe that the U.S. is facing right now. Biden created it with his ill-conceived assault on domestic energy.

His policies hiked the cost of oil and gas to intentionally make fossil fuels unaffordable without a viable replacement for them. His regulations drove up the expense of production while reducing the supply just as consumption went up. Inevitably, prices skyrocketed. Hardworking Americans are now suffering because of it.

But Joe is in a chronic state of denial.  He keeps claiming that Putin is the boogeyman to blame.

Forget that gasoline prices and inflation across America reached near record levels long before Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. They’ve been on the rise during the past six months. Inflation is close to 8 percent —a new 40 year high for the third month in a row. This obviously predates Putin’s war.

Just days ago, at a conference of Democrats, both Biden and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi tried to convince members of their own party that they’re not to blame.

Biden: “I’m sick of this stuff…because the American people think the reason there’s inflation is because the government is spending more money. Simply not true.”

Pelosi: “It’s Putin’s gas hike, that’s his gas hike, there’s so much of this increase in this gas tax…uh… gas price… started…uh, weeks leading up to what happened there.”

Biden: “Make no mistake, inflation is largely the fault of Putin. I love, you know, Republicans saying it’s Biden’s gas pipeline…Biden said he’s going to stop the Keystone Pipeline…and I did!”

It’s not just Biden’s deranged energy policy that is wreaking havoc. His profligate spending compounded the crisis. Like drunken sailors on payday, he and Pelosi pumped trillions of dollars into the U.S. economy. It’s impossible to saturate the marketplace with that much currency without causing prices to go up. It is basic Economics 101.

Yet, Pelosi stood before microphones and turned the fundamentals of economics on its head by stating, “Government spending is doing the exact reverse —reducing the government debt. It is not inflationary.”

Pelosi’s tortured logic was an embarrassing face-plant. Our national debt, which stands at $30 trillion is going up, not down. And even Biden conceded in a previous speech in November that his $2 trillion American Rescue Plan caused prices to go up. It was an uncommon moment of clarity. But now he’s changed his tune…because politicians are nothing if not duplicitous.

Voters understand economics far better than Biden and Pelosi. The polling data shows that Americans are deeply unhappy that the president and his party have driven energy prices and inflation off the proverbial cliff. They know that this is Biden’s inflation. Yet he refuses to own it.

Nor are they buying his vacuous excuses. You remember them. First, he claimed that inflation was “transitory.” Then it was merely a supply chain snafu. Then the White House said it was “actually a good sign.” When that didn’t sell, it was all Putin’s fault.

All the while, Biden keeps pretending that economy is in great shape, and we should double-down on his green energy agenda to eliminate all fossil fuels now. If that sounds like a sane strategy, you should get your head examined.

What happens when cars run out of gas and the lights go out? What happens when people can no longer heat their homes? Will Joe keep scapegoating and gaslighting? You can bet on it.

When he was sworn into office, Joe vowed that he would exhibit the courage and humility that true leadership demands. He declared, “I promise you, I’m going to take responsibility. When I make a mistake, I’ll admit it.” He hasn’t done it, and he won’t do it.

Instead, Biden has embraced the tactics of a coward…who blames others for his own mistakes.

BREAKING EXCLUSIVE: Hunter Biden Firm Rosemont Seneca Invested in Firm Tied to Ukrainian Biolabs

BREAKING EXCLUSIVE: Hunter Biden Firm Rosemont Seneca Invested in Firm Tied to Ukrainian Biolabs

Hunter Biden’s firm Rosemont Seneca provided capital for the firms behind the creation of Biolabs in Ukraine.  

We heard on Tuesday from the US State Department that there were US Biolabs in Ukraine. Then on Wednesday the Biden regime backtracked and insisted there were no US-funded Biolabs in Ukraine.

Why the sudden confusing messaging from the Biden gang?  Especially when there are documents that prove the US was funding several of the Biolabs they set up in Ukraine to study potentially dangerous pathogens.

It may be because Hunter Biden’s firm Rosemont Seneca was funding the firms involved in the building of these labs in Ukraine and they felt this was not something they wanted the American people to know.

InfoWars put together an excellent article with connections between Hunter Biden and the firm Metabiota, which was involved in the creation of Biolabs in Ukraine.

The Gateway Pundit identified through the Wayback Machine that Rosemont Seneca provided capital (invested in) Metabiota as noted on the firm’s website back in 2014.

It is listed as “Our Team’s Investments” on the Rosemont Senaca webpage.

We also located a number of documents from the Wayback Machine (meaning they have been since deleted off the Internet) that show the Department of Defense investing in the creation of Biolabs in Ukraine with the help of firm Black & Veatch.

Here is a sample of one of the documents located.  (We’ve located nearly a dozen of these documents.)

Metabiota publicized its relationship with Black & Veach in 2018:

Today, Metabiota, the pioneer in epidemic risk modeling, announced it has been awarded a subcontract from Black & Veatch (B&V) to support the U.S. Defense Threat Reduction Agency’s (DTRA) Cooperative Biological Engagement Program (CBEP) in Iraq under the Biological Threat Reduction Integrating Contract (BTRIC). Metabiota has also partnered with B&V on DTRA’s recently awarded Cooperative Threat Reduction Integrating Contract (CTRIC) III with an Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (ID/IQ) contract ceiling of $970M.

The US State Department admitted to having Biolabs in Ukraine on Tuesday in front of the US Senate.  Then yesterday the Biden White House claimed these Biolabs in Ukraine were not biological weapons labs.

Today we have confirmation that there were Biolabs in Ukraine and Hunter Biden’s firm Rosemont Seneca invested in the firms who were building these labs.

Kakistocracy: noun, government by the worst persons; a form of government in which the worst persons are in power

Kakistocracy: noun, government by the worst persons; a form of government in which the worst persons are in power.

The old saying goes that even a blind squirrel finds a nut occasionally.  So you might think that during a 50-year political career, the odds would dictate that Joe Biden would, once in a blue moon, make a correct decision — just based on the odds.  But you’d be mistaken.  Biden has stumbled and bumbled from one disastrous decision to the next.  Disastrous, that is, for America.  Biden himself has prospered handsomely in spite of his glaring incompetence and corruption. 

Biden’s long Senate career was based on being the credit card companies’ man in Washington.  While crowing endlessly about the working class being “his people,” Biden sponsored bills allowing bank issuers to charge egregious interest rates and to make it harder for working men to escape the credit trap through bankruptcy.

When Biden chaired the Senate Judiciary Committee, he turned the confirmation of Clarence Thomas into a political smear campaign that descended into a degenerate three-ring circus. In his first campaign for president, he failed to garner a single percentage point before having to withdraw when confronted with his past lies and blatant plagiarism. He literally stole a speech detailing a British politician’s life story. He ran again in 2008 but again failed to reach even one percent of the vote.

When Barack Obama took him off the primary trash heap to make him vice president, Biden first made a hash out of the 2009 American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, wasting hundreds of billions on boondoggles and giveaways to Democrat cronies. Little of the recovery billions was spent on anything useful to America. Biden went on to manage our relations with China and Ukraine, pocketing untold millions for himself and his family by selling out America’s security interests.

By the time he ran for president again in 2020 he was a spent husk of his former corrupt and incompetent self, delivering asinine performances in the Iowa caucus and New Hampshire primary. When the Democrat establishment propped him up to once again stop Bernie Sanders, Biden was set up for the strangest presidential campaign in modern history. While Donald Trump barnstormed the nation with packed, enthusiastic rallies, Biden cowered in his basement, occasionally venturing out to speak with a few dozen voters sitting in circles drawn on the floor.

For his vice presidential pick, he chose — if you can believe it — an even more buffoonish candidate than himself.

Had it not been for Mark Zuckerberg buying and staffing government election offices in swing states, and the media and Big Tech’s censorship of the Biden family’s corruption, Biden would now be enjoying his dotage in Delaware, creeping on unsuspecting children with yarns of Corn Pop and South African arrests.

Instead, the man with one of the most astonishing records of abject failure in Washington was installed in the White House, and he has remained true to form.  As one of a hundred senators and then as vice president, there was a limit to how much damage he could do.  But as president, the shackles have been removed.

His first agenda item was to throttle our oil and gas sector, offshoring tens of thousands of good paying jobs to Russia and the Middle East — along with our energy independence. He threw open our southern border and encouraged virtually unlimited illegal immigration — during a global pandemic.

He sponsored trillions of dollars in wasteful spending, pushing our national debt to over $31 trillion.  Were it not for two Democrat senators who had not yet taken leave of their senses, it would have been even worse.  As it is, Biden has sparked the largest one-year increase in inflation in 40 years.

Biden’s “defund the police” rhetoric delivered us soaring violent crime in Democrat-run cities, while he sicced federal law enforcement on parents who object too strenuously to their children being indoctrinated with anti-White racism and LGBTQIA+ ideology. 

It can truly be said that as president, Biden’s record of failure remains unblemished.  

But now comes what may be the capstone on Biden’s long history of buffoonery and corruption.  In Ukraine, we have an armed conflict that threatens to plunge the world into an economic depression and raises the specter of nuclear war.  Not only did Biden set the stage for this calamity when, as vice president, he was in charge of Ukraine policy and led Kiev to believe that NATO membership was in Ukraine’s future, but on the eve of the Russian invasion, he refused to admit that it was not.  Then Biden all but admitted to Vladimir Putin — on live TV, no less — that NATO would not defend Ukraine if Russia chose to invade. 

In the aftermath of Russia’s invasion, Biden and his administration have crafted sanctions that seem almost designed to boomerang on America’s and Europe’s fragile post-pandemic economies, while forcing Russia into a deeper alliance with China

With the U.S. over $31 trillion in debt, Biden seems totally oblivious to the perilous position of the U.S. dollar as the world’s reserve currency and the consequences should that privileged position end. 

Economists predict that food and gasoline will cost the average U.S. household an additional $3,000 this year, and inflation threatens to push millions of lower-middle income-earners into abject poverty.

And bumbling, corrupt Joe Biden isn’t yet halfway through his first — and please God, last — term.
