'It would be "racist" if this was a Republican': Kamala Harris is condemned for wiping her hand on her trousers after shaking it with South Korean president

Kamala Harris was condemned for wiping her hand on her trousers immediately after a handshake with South Korean President Moon Jae-in.

The Vice President met with Moon Jae-in on Friday as part of Joe Biden's second in-person session with a foreign leader since coming to office, because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Footage that has since gone viral on Twitter shows Democrat Harris appearing to immediately wipe down her hand after the pair ended their joint press conference.

Notre Dame cancels Biden! Catholic school will NOT give honorary degree traditionally handed to presidents amid outrage over his pro-choice views

Joe Biden will skip a commencement ceremony traditionally attended by presidents amid a row over his pro-abortion views at the Catholic university.

Biden's administration will be the first since Bill Clinton's to skip the University of Notre Dame's commencement ceremony, after more than 4,000 students and alumni signed a petition urging school officials not to invite the president over his pro-choice view on abortion.

A White House official told the Catholic News Agency on May 11 that the president was invited to give a commencement speech and receive an honorary degree from the school but would not attend due to a scheduling conflict.

Alarming Admission From Kamala Brings Up Question Of Who Is In Charge Of America?

Contrary to CNN, MSNBC and other outlets, it was Vice President Kamala Harris, not President Joe Biden on Thursday spoke to Jordanian King Abdullah II on account of President Biden to notify him of US attempts to back a ceasefire in the Israel-Hamas conflict.

Oddly enough, the leader of the free world, Joe Biden has not talked with the Arab nation’s leader since Hamas began firing rockets last week from Gaza into Israel following clashes in Jerusalem.

“I spoke with Jordan King Abdullah II to reaffirm our support and express our commitment to continued close cooperation,” Harris wrote on Twitter. “I briefed him on our intensive diplomatic efforts to support the path to a ceasefire in Gaza. The U.S. and Jordan will continue working to de-escalate tensions.”

White House makes $1.7 trillion infrastructure counteroffer — but Republicans say sides now seem further apart

White House aides working on a bipartisan infrastructure deal made a counteroffer on Friday to Republican senators, reducing the Biden administration’s initial proposal by $600 billion.

Within hours, those Republicans threw cold water on the new proposal and said the sides now seemed “further apart” after what had appeared to be progress in negotiations.

The latest offer would cost $1.7 trillion over a decade, according to a memo from the White House to Republican Sen. Shelley Moore Capito, of West Virginia, who is spearheading negotiations for the GOP.

Biden to Replenish Israel's Iron Dome Missile Supply in Addition to Sending $735M in Arms

Joe Biden has agreed to arm Israel to the teeth and replenish their Iron Dome missile supply as "Israel has the right to defend itself" but indicated the people of Gaza will only get US aid if they give up their right to defend themselves and accept being conquered.

Biden promises to replenish Israel's Iron Dome supply, help rebuild Gaza

US President Joe Biden promised to replenish Israel's supply of Iron Dome interceptors and to help rebuild the Gaza Strip in a brief address he delivered at the White House shortly after the announcement that a truce had been reached to end 11 days of IDF-Hamas conflict on Thursday evening.

"The US is committed to working with the UN... and other international stakeholders to provide rapid humanitarian assistance and to marshal international support for the people of Gaza and the Gaza reconstruction efforts," he said.

Biden’s opposition to an Israeli ceasefire is nothing new

The headlines read various versions of “Biden supports a ceasefire!” Israeli bombs and missiles have killed 232 Palestinians, 65 of them children, and left more than 1,900 wounded and 75,000 homeless in Gaza. Twelve have died in Israel. Shouldn’t support for an immediate end to the slaughter be automatic? What does it mean when the leader of the most powerful country in the world refuses, through days of death and devastation, to call for a ceasefire, and actually prevents the United Nations from doing so?

U.S. And Its Allies Try to Split the World in Two

America’s response to the increasing economic success of China and other nations that until recent decades were impoverished former colonies is to organize its own allies — especially the English-speaking countries — to become a totally separate global economic trading and military alliance standing against that “third world” — and thereby force all non-aligned nations to have to either choose to be allied with the United States or else become conquered by the U.S. and its allies. It’s “Us,” or “Them,” all the way. The top “enemies” (the “Them”) are the same countries that America and its allies were against during the anti-communist Cold War, Russia and China, even though Russia is no longer communist, and China has become a mixture between communism and capitalism.

America has on its side Saudi Arabia, Israel, Qatar, UAE, and all four of the fascist nations during World War II: Germany, Japan, Italy, and Spain — as well as many other nations.

"Please Clap" Moment: Biden Calls Coast Guard Cadets 'Dull Class' Over Lack Of Applause

President Biden - not satisfied indoctrinating the US military with Critical Race Theory and scouring their social media accounts for 'extremist content' - is now directly insulting Americans in uniform with a "please clap" moment.

During a Wednesday commencement address for 2021 Coast Guard cadets, Biden was peeved at the lack of applause - calling them a "dull class."

"You are a really dull class. Come on, man. Is the sun getting to you? I would think you'd have an opportunity when I say that about the Navy to clap — to be here together …"

Biden Urges "Significant De-Escalation" By "Today" In Gaza Call With Netanyahu

In their second call in just a few days as the Gaza death toll soars amid unrelenting Israeli airstrikes, President Joe Biden told Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Wednesday that he expects a "significant de-escalation" in violence which can open a window for a ceasefire soon.

According to the White House call readout, the two leaders held "a detailed discussion on the state of events in Gaza, Israel’s progress in degrading the capabilities of Hamas and other terrorist elements, and ongoing diplomatic efforts by regional governments and the United States," after which "The President conveyed to the Prime Minister that he expected a significant de-escalation today on the path to a ceasefire."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Biden's comment is purely for show. If the US really wanted de-escalation, they would not have blocked all those UNSC resolutions!

Biden Tells Netanyahu He Expects 'Significant De-Escalation Today' on Path to Ceasefire

Tensions in Israel have been worsening over the past few days, as Hamas has fired thousands of rockets at various Israeli cities and Israel's air force has retaliated by hitting Hamas facilities.

US President Joe Biden held a telephone conversation with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, saying he is expecting a major de-escalation of the recent tensions between the Israel Defence Forces (IDF) and Hamas, according to the White House.

"President Biden spoke with Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu today. The two leaders had a detailed discussion on the state of events in Gaza, Israel's progress in degrading the capabilities of Hamas and other terrorist elements, and ongoing diplomatic efforts by regional governments and the United States. The President conveyed to the Prime Minister that he expected a significant de-escalation today on the path to a ceasefire", the White House said in a statement.

Biden Administration Not Willing to Compromise Its Relationship With Germany Over Nord Stream 2

The Biden administration will waive sanctions on the corporate entity and CEO overseeing the construction of Russia’s Nord Stream 2 pipeline into Germany, according to two sources briefed on the decision.

Why it matters: The decision indicates the Biden administration is not willing to compromise its relationship with Germany over this pipeline, and it underscores the difficulties President Biden faces in matching actions to rhetoric on a tougher approach to Russia.

Driving the news: The State Department will imminently send its mandatory 90-day report to Congress listing entities involved in Nord Stream 2 that deserve sanctions. Sources familiar with the drafting of the report tell Axios the State Department plans to call for sanctions against a handful of Russian ships.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Inside The Biden Administration’s Devious Plan To Purge Conservatives From The U.S. Military

If you are currently a member of the U.S. military and you would like to keep your job, you may want to delete all of your social media accounts. We have just learned that the Pentagon is going to begin monitoring the social media accounts of the men and women that are serving in the military with the goal of identifying “extremist content”. And as you will see below, those that get labeled as “extremists” are in danger of being permanently relieved from duty. Not only is this fundamentally un-American, this radical new approach also threatens to permanently shift the culture of the U.S. military dramatically to the left. Even if a Republican is elected president in the next election, the U.S. military will never be the same after a relentless political purge that lasts for four long years.

Will Biden Stay in Bibi’s Pocket?

Netanyahu’s own words, videotaped two decades ago, show his disdain for the malleability of former U.S. presidents. As it turns out, Netanyahu had good reason to hold them in contempt as he "maneuvered" around them to ensure unstinting American support for status-quo Israeli domination of the Palestinians.

How about now? Will he see President Biden as a wimp, with Biden’s mealy-mouthed comment to Netanyahu earlier today that Biden "expects to see a significant de-escalation today on the path to a ceasefire" in Gaza.

If past is precedent, Netanyahu’s likely response will be a half-polite, "Joe, please take that and shove it … and oh, by the way, I meant to thank you for your proposed sale of $735 million-worth of smart bombs a couple of weeks ago. It came at just the right time for me."

A history of the US blocking UN resolutions against Israel

The United States has vetoed dozens of United Nations Security Council (UNSC) resolutions critical of Israel, including at least 53 since 1972, according to UN data.

With the latest escalation of violence between Israel and the Palestinians now in its tenth day, the US has stuck to that playbook. On Monday, Washington blocked a joint statement calling for an immediate ceasefire between Israel and Hamas – the US’s third such veto reportedly within a week.

For 3rd Time, US Blocks UN Security Council Statement Urging Gaza Ceasefire

For the third time within one week, the US blocked a statement at the UN Security Council condemning Israeli violence against Palestinians and urging a ceasefire in Gaza. Israeli bombs have killed over 200 people since last Monday, including over 60 children.

The latest statement blocked by the US was introduced by Norway, Tunisia, and China after an emergency Security Council meeting on Sunday. According to a draft obtained by The Times of Israel, the statement expressed the Security Council’s “grave concern regarding the crisis related to Gaza and the loss of civilian lives and casualties, and called for de-escalation of the situation, cessation of violence and respect for international humanitarian law, including the protection of civilians, especially children.”

Despite the US’s unwillingness to pressure Israel, other countries still want to push for a ceasefire at the UN. The UN General Assembly is set to discuss the Gaza onslaught on Thursday morning.

Biden Approves Sale Of $735M In Missiles to Israel, Including Same Type Used to Strike Gaza Tower

Secretary of State Blinken says US working ‘behind the scenes’ to end Israel/Palestine violence… despite new $735mn arms deal

US Secretary of State Tony Blinken has said that the Biden administration is working “behind the scenes” to end the violence in Israel and Palestine. Yet the administration intends to sell Israel $735 million worth of bombs.

Amid global calls for restraint, Israel and Palestinian militant group Hamas have continued to trade rockets and missiles for the past week. 10 Israelis have been killed, and around 200 Palestinians, including at least 58 children, have lost their lives, according to Palestinian sources.

US helping Israel kill more children with more precision: Zarif

“As US-made munitions rain down on innocent Palestinians, US gives another $735M in ‘precision’ missiles to Israel to kill more children with more precision,” Zarif tweeted on Tuesday.

Israeli airstrikes on Gaza resume as Tel Aviv thanks Biden administration for blocking UN statement calling for ceasefire

The Israeli military conducted a new series of air raids on Gaza after Israel’s defense minister expressed gratitude to the US for blocking a UN resolution calling for a ceasefire for the third time in a row.

Israeli warplanes pummeled the Palestinian enclave overnight on Monday, local media reported.

The Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) hit buildings near Al-Qatiba Square in the western part of Gaza, according to the Jerusalem Post, while local reports suggested that an office for Palestinian Prisoners' Affairs was targeted, as well as agricultural lands.

Footage purporting to show the bombardment and its aftermath has been shared on social media.

Netanyahu Warns Biden Not to Get Involved

An interesting recent article by international lawyer John Whitbeck suggests that the billions of dollars that the United States gives to Israel annually is not technically “foreign aid” as the Jewish state is as measured by per capita GDP the 19th wealthiest in the world, ahead of countries like Germany. It is, instead “tribute,” which is defined as the “payment made periodically by one state or ruler to another, especially as a sign of dependence.”

Biden Steals $850 Mil from COVID Strategic Medical Stockpile for Illegal Aliens

Remember during the pandemic when we occasionally wondered where the supplies that the federal and state government was supposed to have stockpiled for emergencies like this were, and it turned out Obama and Democrat governors had emptied them out?

Even lackluster RINOs like Schwarzenegger had responsibly built up stockpiles of supplies for an emergency that Democrats trashed.

Once this became an issue, the media rushed into action, spinning frantically and tossing out denials. Except that we're now seeing the same process repeating itself in real time.

The Department of Health and Human Services has diverted more than $2 billion meant for other health initiatives toward covering the cost of caring for unaccompanied immigrant children (ed: illegal alien migrants of uncertain age), as the Biden administration grapples with a record influx of migrants on the southern border.

“Her response to the border crisis has been absolutely abysmal, so I am requesting that she be replaced as your ‘border czar,'” Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich wrote in a letter to Biden.

China: US choking criticism of Israel at UNSC

China’s foreign minister blasts the United States for choking any criticism of the Israeli regime’s barbarity against the Palestinians at the United Nations Security Council.

"Regrettably, simply because of the obstruction of one country, the Security Council hasn't been able to speak with one voice," Wang Yi told an emergency meeting of the Council on Sunday.

Since Monday, as many as 192 Palestinians, including 58 children and 34 women, have died during a significant escalation in the Israeli military’s attacks against Gaza, according to Gaza’s health ministry.

One strike recently slew a 10-member family, including eight children.

More than 1,200 others have also been injured so far.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has, however, said the regime’s strikes against Gaza were to continue “with full force.”

"We are acting now, for as long as necessary,” he said, claiming that the aggression was necessary “to restore calm” and “will take time" to cease.

Biden Administration Reportedly Blocking UN Cease-Fire Statement as Israel Bombards Gaza

The Biden administration is reportedly blocking the release of a United Nations Security Council statement calling for an immediate cease-fire as Israel continues its devastating assault on the occupied Gaza Strip, killing dozens of Palestinians and injuring hundreds more.

According to Reuters, which cited anonymous diplomats and sources familiar with the Biden administration's strategy, the United States is "delaying" the U.N. Security Council's "efforts to issue a public statement on escalating tensions between Israel and the Palestinians because it could be harmful to behind-the-scenes efforts to end the violence."

One source told the outlet that the U.S. is "actively engaged in diplomacy behind the scenes with all parties to achieve a cease-fire," but the official did not specify how a U.N. Security Council joint statement—which must be agreed to by consensus—would undermine those talks.

White House avoids question on Palestinians' right to self-defense

White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki avoided a reporter's question whether US President Joe Biden believes Palestinians have a right to self-defense amid Israeli airstrikes, Anadolu Agency reported.

"We've heard repeatedly with respect to the statements about violence in Israel that Israel has a legitimate right to self-defense but we're not hearing about the Palestinians right to self-defense. Why is that and does the president believe that Palestinians have a right to self-defense," asked a reporter.

In response, Psaki did not say "yes" or "no" to the question but said the US is working to de-escalate and try to reduce in the region.

"Let me first say, I think it's important to note, as I think you'd agree, that these [rocket] attacks are coming from Hamas and many Palestinian people are being put in danger because of the violence that is happening back and forth.

US Spends 90% More Than It Collects In First 7 Months Of Fiscal 2021

With "base effect" all the rage this month, moments ago we also got the 1-year anniversary of the Covid crash in the US budget deficit dataset when the Treasury reported the April government revenue and spending. And while the data in isolation wasn't pretty, it was absolutely stellar compared to last April's blowout $738 billion deficit.

Last month, the US collected $439.2BN in receipts, a solid improvement to the $267.6BN in March and 81.6% higher than the $241.9BN in receipts collected last April when the US economy was in freefall. Of note: $7.2BN of the money collected by the Treasury included $7.2BN in Fed remittances from "profits" on the Fed's QE.

Outlays, while ugly at $664.8BN, were also an improvement compared to the $927.2BN the US spent in March when it funded the latest Biden fiscal stimulus, and down 32.2% from the $979.9BN last April when the Trump admin unleashed the first stimulus.

More than 120 retired generals and admirals wrote to Biden suggesting he wasn't legitimately elected and questioning his mental health

More than 120 retired US military leaders have signed an open letter appearing to advance a false conspiracy theory that the 2020 election was rigged, and questioning President Joe Biden's mental capacity to rule.

"Without fair and honest elections that accurately reflect the 'will of the people' our Constitutional Republic is lost," said the letter released Tuesday by "Flag Officers 4 America," and signed by 124 former admirals and generals.

"The FBI and Supreme Court must act swiftly when election irregularities are surfaced and not ignore them as was done in 2020."

On its website, Flag Officers 4 America says it is a collection of "retired military leaders who pledged to support and defend the Constitution of the US against all enemies, foreign and domestic."

In the letter, the signatories, many of whom have been out of active service for decades, also addressed concerns over Biden's health.

As Jobs Report Massively Disappoints, Biden Quotes Irrelevant Stats To Explain Why It Didn't

U.S. Secretary of Commerce Gina Raimondo said on Sunday that the dismal April jobs report reveals the economy has a "long way to go" as it heals from the coronavirus pandemic amid judgment that extended unemployment benefits are reducing the incentive for Americans to get back to work.

The U.S. added just 266,000 new jobs last month, well below the 1 million forecast by Wall Street.

"I think we have a long way to go to recover from the pandemic. There are so many Americans still struggling. Eight million fewer jobs than there were pre-pandemic," Raimondo said during an appearance on CBS' "Face the Nation." "We are working very hard. In fact, we had a meeting with the president on Friday, and that was his direction to us, which is we are making bold moves, but there's a long way to go and we have to be there to help Americans find jobs."

US President Joe Biden and Russian President Vladimir Putin have agreed to maintain dialogue on strategic stability issues, such as arms control and emerging security issues, Ambassador Robert A. Wood, the US permanent representative to the Conference on Disarmament, said on Tuesday.

"President Biden and President Putin have agreed to explore strategic stability discussions on a range of arms control and emerging security issues. We are in the process of preparing for these discussions", Wood said at the Conference on Disarmament Plenary Thematic Debate.

The US president said on Monday he would not change his plans to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin. Biden said last week that a tentative meeting between him and Putin was being arranged for June.

THE AMERICAN CYBER STASI WILL SUPPRESS ALL DIGITAL DISSENT IN BIDEN’S DYSTOPIA

The dystopian hellhole that I predicted would become a fait accompli following Biden’s confirmation as President by the Electoral College is quickly becoming a reality after CNN’s recent report that the US security services are considering contracting the services of so-called “researchers” as a legal workaround for spying on average Americans. CNN’s recent report that the US’ security services are considering contracting the services of so-called “researchers” as a legal workaround for spying on average Americans confirms that Biden’s dystopian hellhole is rapidly moving in the direction of establishing a “Cyber Stasi” for suppressing all digital dissent against the Democrats as they continuing consolidating their de facto one-party rule of the country.

According to the outlet, these ostensibly independent contractors would be charged with infiltrating the social media circles of white supremacists and other supposedly terrorist-inclined domestic forces within the country.

Will Biden Have Blood on His Hands in Afghanistan?

President Biden has announced that America’s forever war in Afghanistan is finally coming to an end. He says that U.S. forces will exit the country by next September 11.

That’s a good thing. And it is long overdue.

But there is one big problem with Biden’s timetable: It violates an agreement that the U.S. government entered into with the Taliban to exit the country by May 1 of this year.

Under that agreement, the Taliban agreed not to attack U.S. troops prior to their scheduled departure on May 1. With Biden’s decision to deliberately violate the agreement by unilaterally extending the withdrawal to September 11, he is knowingly placing the lives of the 3,500 American servicemen still in Afghanistan at risk.

Trump’s Secret Rules for Drone Strikes and Presidents’ Unchecked License to Kill

On Friday night, in response to transparency lawsuits filed by the ACLU and the New York Times, the Biden administration released a redacted version of President Trump’s rules for the use of lethal force against terrorism suspects abroad. During the Trump administration, the Times and other media reported that the Trump rules weakened even the loose policy safeguards put in place by the Obama administration in 2013, which were also released in response to litigation in 2016. Despite redactions, the newly-revealed Trump rules show how far that administration went in casting aside any meaningful constraint on the United States’ use of lethal force abroad without meaningful oversight by Congress or the judiciary, and with devastating consequences for people’s lives.

Biden State Dept says Israel has right to self-defense, won’t say whether Palestine does

State Department spokesperson Ned Price began his Monday press conference by condemning Hamas for launching rockets at Israel. “This is an unacceptable escalation,” declared Price. “While we urge deescalation on all sides, we also recognize Israel’s legitimate right to defend its people and its territory.

Said Arikat, Washington Bureau Chief for al-Quds, had a very direct follow-up question: “Do Palestinians have a right to self-defense?”

“Broadly speaking Said, we believe in the concept of self-defense. We believe it applies to any state,” responded Price.

The AP’s Matt Lee took note of this assertion and had an inquiry later in the press conference. Price had said that any state has a right to self-defense. Does the Biden administration view Palestine as a state? If they do not, was Price saying Palestinians don’t have a right to self-defense?

Israel to US: Stay Out of Jerusalem Crisis

With violence against Palestinians escalating in East Jerusalem, the US expressed “concerns” over the situation and the planned evictions in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood. According to multiple media reports, the Israelis didn’t want to hear these concerns and told the US not to meddle in the crisis.

The “concerns” were expressed in a Sunday phone call between National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan and his Israeli counterpart, Meir Ben-Shabbat. According to Hebrew media reports, Ben-Shabbat told Sullivan that the US and other countries should stay out of the conflict. He said international pressure on Israel to halt the evictions or stop the violence would be “a prize for the rioters and those sending them who hoped to put pressure on Israel.”

Ben-Shabbat also said Israel was handling the situation “out of a position of sovereignty, responsibly, and with common sense despite the provocations.”

Yes, Biden Is Swindling Americans: White House Staffer Lets the Cat Out of the Bag

The myth of the “moderate” Joe Biden stubbornly refuses to die — partially because the Democrats and the legacy media are working overtime to keep it breathing.

He even called Georgia’s new election integrity bill “Jim Crow on steroids.”

The Butterfly Effect Re-Setting The Global Paradigm

The shift of paradigm centred on the U.S. pivot away from West Asia naturally impacts on Iran’s JCPOA calculus...

In chaos theory, the butterfly effect is the idea that small things can have non-linear impacts on a complex system. The concept is imagined with a butterfly flapping its wings, and though this, in itself, would be unlikely to cause a tornado, nonetheless small events can cause cascades of change within a complex system. And so to Europe, where Germany is changing. The Green Party is flapping its wings in the spatial void left by Merkel’s expected departure. And though the Party, some years ago, was almost wholly Corbinite (i.e. classic anti-establishment), today, beneath its liberal surface, the Green rhetoric is something different – It is fiercely North Atlanticist, pro-NATO and anti-Russian (even quasi neo-liberal).

Record-Low Deportations Part Of Biden's Plan To "Dismantle ICE": Former ICE Chief

The record-low number of deportations in the United States in April signals that the Biden administration is working toward abolishing immigration enforcement, the former acting chief of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) says.

“It’s terrible. You got record numbers, people coming into the country illegally being released, and a record low of people being removed,” Thomas Homan, who headed the agency during the Trump administration, told The Epoch Times.

“But that’s by design, this isn’t an accident—they want to dismantle ICE. Rather than abolish them, which they had a tough time doing they’re just making them not effective. Looks like it’s working,” he added.

The end goal, according to Homan, is completely halting immigration enforcement.

“They want open borders because they think they’re going to be all future Democratic voters. This is about perpetual power of the government,” he said.

Rickards: The Sky Is Falling

What do you think is America’s most serious geopolitical challenge - China, Russia, Iran, maybe North Korea?

None of the above, apparently. According to President Biden’s Director of National Intelligence, Avril Haines, climate change needs to be “at the center” of countries’ national security and foreign policy.

Well, Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen will be doing her best to make sure the crusade against climate change gets plenty of funding.

Yellen has called for a “whole-of-economy” approach to fighting climate change — which essentially means massive subsidies to finance so-called green energies and discourage fossil fuel production.

In other words, climate alarmism is the official position of the Biden administration.

America’s richest boost fortunes by $195 billion in Biden’s first 100 days

Herland Report: During US President Joe Biden’s first hundred days in office, the wealthiest billionaire Americans have – as expected – become one of the main beneficiaries of his presidency.

The combined net worth of the top 100 ultra-rich people in the US has skyrocketed by $195 billion since Biden took office, according to Bloomberg. From his election to his inauguration, they added $267 billion to their fortunes, bringing their total gain to $461 billion since November 4, reports RT, citing Bloomberg:

“The rise in billionaires’ wealth in the first 100 days of Biden’s presidency is around 20% of the cash stockpile those billionaires raked in between Trump’s inauguration and the 2020 election. According to Bloomberg data, they became $860 billion richer over that period.

Will there be a 4th stimulus check? Here’s the latest update on another payment.

President Joe Biden and congressional Democrats fulfilled a campaign promise by including $1,400 checks in their $1.9 trillion coronavirus stimulus law.

So will there be a fourth wave of stimulus checks?

Biden was urged to support it last month by 21 Senate Democrats, including U.S. Sen. Cory Booker. They want continue automatically until the economy recovers,

“This crisis is far from over, and families deserve certainty that they can put food on the table and keep a roof over their heads,” the senators wrote. “Families should not be at the mercy of constantly-shifting legislative timelines and ad hoc solutions.”

But the president did not propose another round of checks in either of his next two spending plans, one for infrastructure and one for education and child care. So nothing’s on the table right now.

Joe Biden's Offshore Wind Energy Mirage

President Biden recently announced ambitious plans to install huge offshore industrial wind facilities along America’s Atlantic, Gulf of Mexico and Pacific coasts. His goal is to churn out 30 gigawatts (30,000 megawatts) of wind capacity by 2030, ensuring the U.S. “leads by example” in fighting the “climate crisis.”

Granted “30 by 2030” is clever PR. But what are the realities?

The only existing U.S. offshore wind operation features five 6-MW turbines off Rhode Island. Their combined capacity (what they could generate if they worked full-bore, round the clock 24/7) is 30 MW. Mr. Biden is planning 1,000 times more offshore electricity, perhaps split three ways: 10,000 MW for each coast.

Why Did Biden Census Bureau Add 2.5 Million More Residents to Blue-State Population Count?

There is something very fishy about the new 2020 Census Bureau data determining which states picked up seats and which states lost seats.

Most all of the revisions to the original estimates have moved in one direction: Population gains were added to blue states, and population losses were subtracted from red states.

The December revisions in population estimates under the Biden Census Bureau added some 2.5 million blue-state residents and subtracted more than 500,000 red-state residents. These population estimates determine how many electoral votes each state receives for presidential elections and the number of congressional seats in each state.

Is this a mere coincidence?

Who Wags the Dog? Israel’s Friends in Washington Mean Constant War in the Middle East

Donald Trump, who was elected President of the United States in 2016, may have won due to voters attracted by his pledge to end many of the “stupid” wars that the American military was involved in worldwide. In the event, however, he ended no wars in spite of several attempts to withdraw from Afghanistan and Syria, and almost started new conflicts with cruise missile attacks and the assassination of an Iranian general. Trump was consistently outmaneuvered by his “experts” on the National Security Council and at the Pentagon, who insisted that it was too early to disengage from the Middle East and Central Asia, that America’s own national security would be threatened.

SHOCK: CBS Understands Biden Is President, Actually Responsible for Afghanistan

In a stark contrast to the Biden decision making blackout at NBC, CBS This Morning on Wednesday repeatedly brought up Joe Biden's role while talking about the perilous state of Afghanistan as U.S. troops prepare to leave. In an interview with Robert Gates, co-host Anthony Mason even quoted his epic slam of Biden.

Talking to the former Secretary of Defense, Mason brought up Biden’s decision to remove all U.S. troops. He reminded, “You famously said in your memoir, sir, that Mr. Biden has been wrong on nearly every major foreign policy and national security issue over the last four decades. Is he wrong on this one, too?”

Biden’s Anti-White Speech Writer

On April 28, 2021, unelected President Joe Biden spoke the following statement in his address to the Joint Session of Congress: “We won’t ignore what our intelligence agency determined to be the most lethal terrorist threat to the homeland today: White supremacy’s terrorism.”

An examination of how “our intelligence agency” came to this determination will be reserved for another essay. Here let us explore how such a statement could have made its way into the speech of our current installed President, speaking to the entire US Congress (though due to displays of viral fear and social distancing policies, only a token few were actually present), and supposedly by proxy, the entire US population legal and illegal.

Here is the rest of Biden’s speech content relating to “racism” in America and implications that Whites are to blame:

Jen Psaki admits Biden taking impromptu reporter questions is ‘not something we recommend’

White House press secretary Jen Psaki admitted in a CNN podcast published Thursday that President Joe Biden taking impromptu questions from reporters "is not something we recommend."

Psaki made the admission while being interviewed by CNN Senior Political Commentator David Axelrod on his podcast "The Axe Files," and claimed that she, at times, even tells Biden to not take questions from reporters.

The two began discussing the subject when Axelrod asked Psaki about a particular instance when Biden inadvertently ran into CNN reporter Kaitlan Collins at the White House, who proceeded to ask the president if a minimum wage increase to $15 would be included in the coronavirus relief package that was signed into law in March.

Biden's Plan To Revoke The Second Amendment Starts With This Man

Dozens of House Republicans are prompting the Senate to reject President Biden's selection of David Chipman as director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (ATF), describing him as an "enemy of the 2nd Amendment" and saying his approval would "jeopardize" the constitutional rights of gun owners.

Biden last month tapped Chipman, a former federal agent, and adviser at the gun control group Giffords, to be director of ATF.

Fox News received a letter from House Republican Study Committee Chair Jim Banks, R-Ind., and 68 other House GOP members written to Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell. R-Ky., on Monday.

In the note, the GOP members described Chipman as a "longtime gun control activist and lobbyist."

"His beliefs and hostile attitude toward the rights of gun owners are well known," the letter wrote. "Thus, we respectfully ask that you oppose his confirmation."

White House edits transcript to nix support for Ukraine joining NATO

The White House on Thursday made a rare foreign policy pivot by simply crossing out the words in a transcript that had expressed support for Ukraine joining NATO.

The revision is likely to avoid upsetting Russian President Vladimir Putin, but it could fuel a perception of the Biden administration as fickle on Russia policy ahead of a summit next month between President Biden and Putin.

The White House published the unusual transcript edit about four hours after a gaggle on Air Force One between reporters and White House Deputy Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre.

“The Biden administration is committed to ensuring that NATO’s door remains open to aspirants when they are ready and able to meet the commitments and obligations of membership and contribute to security in the Euro-Atlantic area,” Jean-Pierre said.

How Washington Lost the Ultimate Drug War

Originally posted at TomDispatch.

Shouldn’t we be amazed? After all, for almost 20 years, the U.S. military has been supporting, equipping, training, and building up the Afghan military to the tune of more than $70 billion. The result: a corrupt mess of a force likely to prove incapable of successfully defending the U.S.-backed Afghan state from the Taliban once our troops are gone — that is, by this September 11th.

Recently, three New York Times reporters interviewed Afghan officials and military and police figures across the country and concluded that Washington had

Milley: US Considering Training Afghan Forces in Other Countries

n Thursday, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley said the US was considering training the Afghan military in other countries after US troops are pulled out of Afghanistan.

“We’ll continue to take a look at training them perhaps in another location,” Milley said at a joint press conference with Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin. When asked if that means the US would train Afghan forces from a different country, Milley said, “It’s possible.”

“There’s a lot of different options out there, and we haven’t settled on one of them yet,” he added. Milley reiterated that the US will continue to provide financial support for the Afghan military.

The Afghan military, especially the air force, is reliant on Pentagon contractors to maintain their equipment. At the press conference, Austin said the plan is to remove US contractors from Afghanistan, but Milley suggested some sort of contractual support could continue.

White House Supports Social Media’s Ability To Silence ‘Misinformation’

According to the White House, social media companies have the responsibility of shutting down misinformation. During a press conference Wednesday, Press Secretary Jen Psaki was asked about Facebook’s decision to uphold its ban of President Trump.

Specifically, she was asked if Big Tech oligarchs can muzzle a former president, what’s to stop them from silencing anyone? Psaki said she had no comment on Trump, but said Joe Biden’s view is that the major platforms have the job to stop amplifying “untrustworthy content.”

“His view is that there’s more that needs to be done to ensure that this type of misinformation, disinformation, damaging, sometimes life threatening information is not going out to the American public,” stated the press secretary.

IEA: U.S. Lacks Critical Minerals, Biden’s Policies Benefit China

The International Energy Agency (IEA) warned Joe Biden’s policies are bolstering Chinese control over the global supply of critical minerals.

In a new report, the IEA said the U.S. is lacking a stable supply of rare earth materials along with copper, cobalt and lithium. The agency pointed out that China controls between 60 and 90 percent of the supply of such minerals, which are mainly used in advanced electronics and clean energy production.

Back in 2019, President Trump took steps to boost America’s own supply, but the IEA said those efforts were not enough and the U.S. must diversify its sources of rare elements.

“As you can see on the screen for lithium, cobalt and rare earth elements, the world’s top three producing nations control well over three quarters of global output,” explained Tim Gould, the IEA’s head of division for energy supply outlooks and investment. “And in some cases ,a single country is responsible for around half of worldwide production.”

The Biden administration is preparing to directly confront the rash of anti-LGBT, and specifically anti-trans bills proliferating in state legislatures, according to the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), the country’s leading LGBTQ advocacy organization.

Separately, the Department of Justice has told The Daily Beast it will “fully enforce our civil rights statutes to protect transgender individuals,” giving hope to campaigners that the DOJ is preparing to challenge in the courts the legality of bills that have been introduced—and some passed—in a number of states, outlawing transgender youth’s access to health care and sports.

Biden team says it supports waiving patent protections on Covid-19 vaccines

The United States said on Wednesday that it supports waiving valuable patent and other intellectual property protections for Covid-19 vaccines to help expand production of life-saving shots worldwide.

“This is a global health crisis, and the extraordinary circumstances of the Covid-19 pandemic call for extraordinary measures,” U.S. Trade Representative Katherine Tai said in a statement announcing the move.

The decision is a victory for progressive Democrats who have pushed President Joe Biden to endorse India and South Africa's call for a broad waiver of all intellectual property protections for Covid-19 vaccines, therapeutics and diagnostics.

The announcement “is a critical step forward in the fight against Covid-19 and will be a game-changer in the global rush to put shots in arms and save lives," Rep. Earl Blumenauer said in statement. "What’s happening in India right now has made clear that time is of the essence."

Social media platforms must implement measures that will ensure untrustworthy information is not amplified as tech companies are responsible for stopping the promotion of harmful content on their sites, the White House declared on Wednesday.

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki told reporters during the daily briefing that US President Joe Biden believes that "major platforms have a responsibility related to the health and safety of all Americans to stop amplifying untrustworthy content, disinformation and misinformation, especially related to COVID-19, vaccinations and elections.”

Biden’s Stimulus Springs Leaks as March Trade Deficit Explodes to Highest Level Ever

The direct stimulus payments that hit bank accounts across the U.S. in March increased incomes by a record amount—but much of it found its way into foreign coffers, pushing the trade deficit up to the highest level on record.

The U.S. international trade deficit rose to a record $74.4 billion in March with more imports on the books than exports, the Commerce Department said in a report Tuesday.

Exports of goods and services through international trade for the month rose 6.6 percent to $200 billion compared to imports of goods and services (up 6.3 percent to $274.5 billion), the report said.

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.

Impending doom? Economist predicts ‘Biden’s woke economics will lead to disaster’

Economist and University of Maryland Professor Emeritus Peter Morici penned a fiery op-ed headlined, “Biden’s woke economics will lead to disaster.” In the piece, Morici argued that “Mr. Biden doesn’t just want guardrails on markets — limits on bank risk taking, regulations to police discrimination and subsidies to reshape health care.”

Morici decried how Biden is trying to arbitrarily “reprogram American capitalism and culture to address alleged sexism, structural racism and climate change.” Morici didn’t hold back: “Economic policy has become a playpen for the woke Gestapo.”

Morici noted that “[s]ocial efficacy is subjective — what criteria should central banks and private lenders use to assess a race-neutral or transgender-friendly workplace?” In his estimation, Morici said that Biden’s massive influx of “woke” into economic policy “is leading to terrible investment choices.”

Biden Coronavirus Relief Prioritizes Funds for Non-White Business Owners

Restaurants and venues owned by white men will be last in line for federal relief under President Joe Biden’s “Restaurants Revitalization Fund” (RRF), prioritizing funds for women and minority groups first.

As part of Biden’s American Rescue Plan Act of 2021, the Small Business Administration (SBA) is opening the application process by which owners of restaurant, bars, and other venues can apply for federal relief to help make up for the loss of revenue as a result of economic lockdowns spurred by the Chinese coronavirus crisis.

The plan allows business owners to apply for relief of up to $10 million per business and no more than $5 million per physical location. Business owners do not have to repay the funds so long as the money is spent by March 2023.

Biden Admin Drops Dozens Of Charges Against Violent Protesters In Portland

We recently discussed how the plea agreement with a BLM protester (who tried to cut the brake lines on a police vehicle) may indicate a significant shift from the Trump Administration in prosecuting violent protesters. New figures out of Portland would indicate that there is such a major shift occurring. The Justice Department are dropping 58 of the 97 criminal charges brought after the Portland riots, including assaults on officers.

I previously criticized the federalization of these protest cases. Local police were clearly relying on the federal government - as opposed to their own local prosecutors - to address violent protesters. Yet I was also critical of the role of local officials in dismissing and even in some cases fueling such violence with their rhetoric or inaction.

There is clearly a reluctance by many local officials to prosecute violent protesters. Indeed, cities like Atlanta have dropped charges against protesters.

Economist: American Cannot Handle Biden Spending Spree, 'No Logic' To Plans

Biden’s address to a Joint Session of Congress last week was "pretty boring," he noted, "but he did lay out a very aggressive left-wing tax-and-spend agenda — massive spending for everything from babysitting services to free healthcare, everything is going to be free.”

“Everyone knows that everything cannot be free,” he went on to say.

Moore continued, “we used to talk about the V-shaped recovery, so that's what we're seeing right now, and I'm here to tell you, I don't think we need a blizzard of additional spending. Just let the economy heal on its own; we don’t need this avalanche of programs that Joe Biden is talking about. After all, somebody is going to have to pay the tab for all this spending. I think the American people are starting to turn against it."

The Biden administration is modestly laying the groundwork for a long-term increase in food assistance for tens of millions of Americans, without going through the difficulty of a fight with congressional Republicans.

The instrument is an obscure U.S. Department of Agriculture shopping list used to define food stamp benefits, perceived as the market basket.

A review of the so-called Thrifty Food Plan, directed by Biden two days after he took office, could trigger an automatic boost in benefits as early as Oct. 1, a day after expiration of a temporary 15% boost in food stamp payments that Biden included in his $1.9 trillion Covid-relief package.

Biden’s new plan lets the IRS snoop on your bank accounts…

Biden’s plan wants to give an extraordinary amount of new power to the IRS.

Take a look at this fact sheet from the Treasury Department, explaining a new provision that would require banks and financial institutions to start telling the tax agency what people have in their bank account, when money is moved around, and the like. This proposal, according to the fact sheet, “leverages the information that financial institutions already know about account holders, simply requiring that they add to their regular, annual reports information about aggregate account outflows and inflows. Providing the IRS this information will help improve audit selection so it can better target its enforcement activity on the most suspect evaders, avoiding unnecessary (and costly) audits of ordinary taxpayers.”

Biden Executive Order Strips Americans Of Their Rights If They 'Directly Or Indirectly' Aid Russia

Joe Biden last month quietly signed a ridiculously broad executive order to allow the government to "deprive American citizens and organizations of their rights and property by arbitrarily linking those persons to real, imagined, or vaguely defined activities of the Russian government," the American Thinker reports.

From The American Thinker, "Executive Order Canceling the Constitution":
On April 15, President Biden signed an Executive Order on Blocking Property with Respect to Specified Harmful Foreign Activities of the Government of the Russian Federation. Contrary to its title, this EO is not about Russia. It is designed to allow the Biden administration to deprive American citizens and organizations of their rights and property by arbitrarily linking those persons to real, imagined, or vaguely defined activities of the Russian government.

Snowden says Assange prosecution shows Biden’s lip service to ‘brave journalists’ on World Press Freedom Day rings hollow

As US President Joe Biden marked World Press Freedom Day with praise of heroic independent media, his government still seeks to jail Julian Assange of WikiLeaks for the act of journalism, said NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden.

The famed national security whistleblower took the administration to task on Monday, after Secretary of State Antony Blinken boasted of the US devotion to “press freedom” and “the safety of journalists worldwide.” Assange’s ongoing prosecution is impossible to square with those vows, Snowden said.

“This would be more persuasive if the White House weren't aggressively seeking an 175-year sentence for the publisher of award-winning journalism of global importance – despite pleas from every significant press freedom and human rights organization,” he tweeted.

America Is Still Servicing Saudi Aircraft Bombing Yemen

The Biden administration has finally clarified the extent to which it is still supporting Saudi Arabia’s military in Yemen.

In comments to Vox, Pentagon officials admitted that the US is still maintaining Saudi Arabia’s warplanes by using contractors. The US could cancel the contracts at any time, which would effectively ground the Saudi Air Force, ending the vicious bombing campaign that has been raging since March 2015.

“The United States continues to provide maintenance support to Saudi Arabia’s Air Force given the critical role it plays in Saudi air defense and our longstanding security partnership,” a Pentagon spokesperson told Vox over the weekend.

The maintenance is done through the Pentagon’s Foreign Military Sales program, which means Saudi Arabia pays the US to provide contractors that can maintain the warplanes.

“Hear me clearly: America is not a racist country.”

Asked the next day what he thought of Scott’s statement, Biden said he agrees. “No, I don’t think the American people are racist.”

Vice President Kamala Harris also agreed with Scott, “No, I don’t think America is a racist country.”

What makes these rejections of the charge of racism against America significant is that Biden and Harris both seemed to say the opposite after Derek Chauvin was convicted.

CNN: Biden Admin Considering Using Private Firms To Conduct Warrantless Surveillance Of U.S. Citizens

President Joe Biden’s administration is reportedly considering working with private firms to monitor “extremist chatter by Americans online” because the federal government is legally limited to what they can do without a warrant.

The report said the federal government is also banned from using false identities to gain access to private messaging apps and groups. The government can scan public social media profiles.

“The plan being discussed inside DHS, according to multiple sources, would, in effect, allow the department to circumvent” laws that limit what the federal government can do in surveilling U.S. citizens without a warrant, CNN reported. “A source familiar with the effort said it is not about decrypting data but rather using outside entities who can legally access these private groups to gather large amounts of information that could help DHS identify key narratives as they emerge.”

Hawks okay with Israeli attacks on Iran leading to all-out war

A former advisor to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Monday that Israeli actions against Iran may lead to a war that endangers civilian life, but supported that strategy over the Biden administration’s current diplomacy with Iran.

Speaking at the Jewish Institute for National Security of America, retired major general Yaakov Amidror found a receptive audience of American hawks who believed the Biden administration needed to be saved from its own policy choices.

Amidror, who served as Israel’s national security adviser from 2011 to 2013 and is now a distinguished fellow at JINSA, spoke about the Israeli-Iranian “shadow war,” which has involved alleged Israeli sabotage attacks on Iran.

“At the end, we might face Iranians who decide to retaliate,” he said. “Might it lead to a war? I think that the decision makers understand that the answer might be yes.”

Blinken: US, UK and Allies Must Work Against China’s Threat to ‘International Rules-Based Order’

On Monday, Secretary of State Antony Blinken met with UK Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab ahead of an in-person meeting of the foreign ministers of the Group of Seven (G7).

At a joint press conference, Blinken and Raab discussed the need to rally the G7 countries against China and Russia. “We’ll talk about threats to the international rules-based order and to democratic values and human rights,” Blinken said of the G7 meetings that are happening over the next few days.

Blinken and other US officials often claim China is a threat to the so-called “rules-based order.” While the US is clearly following a policy of containment with Beijing, Blinken claims that is not the case. He said the Biden administration’s goal is not to “contain China or to hold China down” but to “uphold the international rules-based order.”

World’s most tyrannical regime can’t stop babbling about 'human rights'

“America won’t back away from our commitment to human rights and fundamental freedoms,” reads a Wednesday tweet from the presidential Twitter account. “No responsible American president can remain silent when basic human rights are violated.”

The tweet, an excerpt from the US president’s prepared congressional address, was retweeted on Saturday by Secretary of State Tony Blinken with the caption, “We will always defend human rights at home and abroad.”

Like all US secretaries of state, Blinken’s public statements overwhelmingly focus on the claim that other nations abuse human rights, and that it is America’s duty to defend those rights. Which is very silly, considering the fact that the US government is the single worst human rights abuser on planet Earth.

And it’s not even close.

As Joe Biden And Democrats 'Declare War' Upon Half Of America, Prepare For Martial Law And America Under Occupation

The election of 2020 proved to most patriotic Americans that elections could be tampered with if not outright stolen. Progressive socialists call the election the "Big Lie." I admit they are right. They thump their chests and tell us that the election was held following the requirements of our Constitution. Thousands of affidavits signed under penalty of Perjury were ignored, as were observations of people on the ground from both parties. There are recounts in Arizona, and will be more recounts in other states.

If the election was so straightforward, why do we still have a military presence in our Capitol.? This is not a position of answering to the American people. This is a show of force to silence the citizenry for what is to come. The political agenda of the progressive socialists will bring willful and immediate resistance, forcing a breakdown of the functional political order that has been part of the American landscape for over 250 years.
