D.L. Gardner: Biden's Ineptitude

What does President Biden really believe? What drives his policies? President Biden began his presidency as many other presidents-elect promising to unify a divided nation. Days after winning the election in November 2020 Biden said, "I pledge to be a president who seeks not to divide, but to unify; who doesn't see red states and blue states, only sees the United States.”

A scant 100 days after taking the oath of office Biden vowed to make racial equity the central focal point of his agenda according to a New York Times article April 24. Racial equity would guide elements of his response to the pandemic, selection of locations for new infrastructure, and how climate policies would be designed.

Biden’s first hallmark in foreign affairs came fewer than seven months later after he had told the Taliban in Afghanistan when he planned to remove our troops. When the fateful day came the Taliban had already captured Kabul and tens of thousands of Americans and Afghanis were scrambling to get through the gates hoping to escape. Biden’s promises to leave no one behind were empty. No plans had been made to meet that promise and tens of thousands have suffered atrocities ever since.

Former Secretary of the Defense Robert Gates had tried to warn voters before the election of Biden’s utter ineptitude in foreign affairs, writing Biden has “been wrong on nearly every major foreign policy and national security issue over the past four decades.”

Last week at one of the nation’s premier Historically Black Universities and Colleges Howard University, Biden pledged to the new graduates he would “stand up against the poison of white supremacy, as I did in my inaugural address — to single it out as the most dangerous terrorist threat to our homeland.” What a unifying challenge to our best and brightest as they enter the work force!

The day Biden was sworn into office, the inflation rate stood at 1.4%. Almost immediately inflation began to creep up and every family in America saw prices of food, consumer goods, and necessities like gasoline eat into every nickel in their pocket books. All the experts in Biden’s administration declared this inflation was transitory even as the creep continued to rise.

By August of 2022 inflation had dipped slightly to 8.5%. Biden’s response to that news was the U.S. had “zero inflation” in July! Although inflation had dipped a bit, the rate was still barely below a four decade high. Then Biden gave the press a lesson in economics saying, “Here’s what that means: while the price of some things go up — went up last month, the price of other things went down by the same amount. The result? Zero inflation last month.”

The corporate media have tried to play nice with old “Uncle Joe.” Now that Biden is president his decisions and pronouncements are beginning to wear a bit thin on even the most virulent woke folks.

 On top of these faux pas on Biden’s coat tails, the House Oversight and Accountability Committee has found some major financial scandals in the Biden family. Chairman James Comer (KY-R) said, “From a historical standpoint, we’ve never seen a presidential family receive these sums of money from adversaries around the world.” What’s this about the Biden family receiving millions from America’s adversaries like China?

Over 80 million idiots voted for this idiot as their leader so they’re happy. No point in trying write articles about said idiot that we’ve all known the whole time. My liberal quote of the day: Not My President

Obama and Susan Rice assured Biden he would be an historically important pres if he went boldly leftwards, plus Obama said publicly he'd be happy to remotely control a puppet president.

People should have known what Joe was like from his past performances. I am another one of the NOT MY PRESIDENT group.

Biden and the effects of his decisions will be with us for a given length of time. However, those that voted for him and their views of issues will be with us many, many years from now. And of the two, the latter is far more dangerous.

Agree with you on criticisms of Biden. If you think a Republican nomination of Donald Trump is the answer be prepared for another four years of Biden/ Harris.I would love DeSantis,Scott,etc. but will vote Democratic over Trump.

Nope, it doesn't make sense that way either.

8:26 I guess you are ok with open borders, inflation rising out of control, trans bs, and WW3. Ole Joe is ushering us into a nuclear war with Russia because of our interference with Ukraine war.

Most folks voting Democrat don’t have the intellectual capacity to understand the issues at hand. They are just voting for more gubmint benefits and less work, more marijuana, more student loan forgiveness, more stimulus, more abortions…that is why we are where we are in this country.

The folks voting democratic actually care for this country and their fellow man, get over it, the minority will not prevail! We the people have awoke and you folks have no idea! You want to label us as woke, you better wake because we are coming to the polls until we put you to sleep!

Perhaps a bigger problem that Joe Biden's cognitive deficiencies, is that the media is completely ignoring the fact that the President of the United States could likely not score 12 on the Montreal Cognitive Assessment exam.

This matter should be a persistent question within the White House press conferences, yet it has never been raised.

When Christiane Amanpour recently stated that is the job of the media to be truthful but not neutral, she made a false claim on the first point and a false assumption on the second point.

This is not even close to true. Trump and his family took billions from the Saudis and Russians. Does he not count Trump as a real president?

These never-Trumpers prefer for inflation to soar than to have the Orange Man back. Screw the poor, seniors, and working class. Keep Orange Man out!

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.
