Biden Takes Multiple Jabs at Trump

1958: US atomic submarine USS Nautilus begins 1st transit of the North Pole “Operation Sunshine.”

President Joe Biden has recently ramped up insults toward former President Donald Trump.

The Hill noted that Biden’s taken to calling Trump “the defeated former president of the United States.”

During a virtual address last week, Biden challenged Trump’s patriotism and loyalty to the country.

“You can’t be pro-insurrection and pro-cop. You can’t be pro-insurrection and pro-democracy. You can’t be pro-insurrection and pro-American,” Biden said.

The following day, Biden doubled down on Twitter: “Call me old fashioned, but I don’t think inciting a mob that attacks a police officer is ‘respect for the law.’”  

The change didn’t go unnoticed by Fox News host Jesse Watters.

“He needs to drop the tough guy act,” Watters said of Biden.

Democratic strategists told The Hill that Biden’s uptick in Trump insults is intentional.

“Why not compare and contrast the person who truly is the face of the Republican Party?” Democratic strategist Rodell Mollineau told the outlet. “Donald Trump is the face of the opposition, and it’s smart to remind Americans who he is.”

Senator Alleges Widespread FBI Effort to Downplay Negative Information About Hunter Biden

1586: Walter Raleigh brings the 1st tobacco to England from Virginia.

Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) claims that “highly credible” whistleblowers have informed him of a widespread effort within the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to downplay or discredit “derogatory information” about President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden.

Grassley outlined his concerns in a July 25 letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray and Attorney General Merrick Garland.

“The information provided to my office involves concerns about the FBI’s receipt and use of derogatory information relating to Hunter Biden, and the FBI’s false portrayal of acquired evidence as disinformation,” Grassley wrote. “The volume and consistency of these allegations substantiate their credibility and necessitate this letter.” 

Grassley, the ranking member on the Senate Judiciary Committee, said that the whistleblowers claimed that the agency dismissed legitimate intelligence about Hunter Biden as “disinformation.”

The Iowa senator stressed that if the whistleblowers’ claims were true, then the agencies are “institutionally corrupted to their very core.”

“You have an obligation to the country to take these allegations seriously, immediately investigate and take steps to institute fixes to these and other matters before you,” Grassley wrote.

The whistleblowers claimed that in 2020, “the FBI developed information about Hunter Biden’s criminal financial and related activity,” Grassley wrote.

“Based on allegations, verified and verifiable derogatory information on Hunter Biden was falsely labeled as disinformation,” he continued.

Grassley added that such action continued until at least October 2020, shortly before the presidential election. The information was dismissed as disinformation even though it was “either verified or verifiable via criminal search warrants.”

The assistant special agent in charge then “allegedly ordered the matter closed without providing a valid reason” — and then “attempted to improperly mark the matter in FBI systems so that it could not be opened in the future,” Grassley wrote.

“If these allegations are true and accurate, the Justice Department and FBI are – and have been – institutionally corrupted to their very core to the point in which the United States Congress and the American people will have no confidence in the equal application of the law.”

“Attorney General Garland and Director Wray, simply put, based on the allegations that I’ve received from numerous whistleblowers, you have systemic and existential problems within your agencies,” Grassley concluded.

The senator demanded an investigation and release of any documents on the dismissed probes into Hunter Biden.

Biden: Military Says Pelosi’s Plan “Not a Good Idea”

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is planning on visiting Taiwan next month, and the military doesn’t think it’s a great idea, according to President Joe Biden.

“Well, I think that the military thinks it’s not a good idea right now,” Biden said when asked about Pelosi’s potential trip. “But I don’t know what the status of it is.”

However, Michèle Flournoy, who served as Undersecretary of Defense for Policy during the Obama administration, applauded Pelosi’s decision.

“I would say good for her,” Flournoy said. “We need to show Taiwan that we have their backs, that we are committed to support[ing] their self-defense, and that we care, and we’re going to show up, and we’re going to try to deter any unprovoked aggression against them.”

Joseph Nye, former U.S. Assistant Secretary of Defense for International Security Affairs, cautioned against the trip.

“I think we ought to be careful about not having high-level visitors to Taiwan,” Nye said. “What we need to do is deter Beijing from thinking they can use force. But at the same time, we don’t want to stick a finger in Xi Jinping’s eye, and provoke them into making some rash decision.”

Major Update on Biden’s Health

1306: King Phillip the Fair, orders expulsion of Jews out of France.

President Joe Biden tested positive for COVID-19 on Thursday morning, the White House announced.

White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said Biden is taking Paxlovid and experiencing “very mild symptoms.” He “will isolate at the White House while continuing to carry out all of his duties fully,” Jean-Pierre said.

Biden, 79, provided an update on his status in a video message posted to Twitter.

“Hey folks, I guess you heard, this morning I tested positive for COVID,” Biden said. “But I’ve been double vaccinated, double boosted. Symptoms are mild. And I really appreciate your inquiries and concerns. But I’m doing well, getting a lot of work done. Going to continue to get it done. And in the meantime, thanks for your concern. And keep the faith. It’s going to be okay.”

The announcement comes a day after the White House shut down speculation that Biden had revealed a new cancer diagnosis during a speech.

“That’s why I, and so damn many other people I grew up with, have cancer,” Biden said during a speech in Massachusetts. “For the longest time, Delaware had the highest cancer rate in the nation, but that’s the past.”

When asked for clarification, White House officials pointed media outlets to a tweet from Washington Post columnist Glenn Kessler.

“Check out Biden’s medical report. Before he became president, he’d had non-melanoma skin cancers removed,” Kessler said.

“It is well-established that President Biden did spend a good deal of time in the sun in his youth. He has had several localized, non-melanoma skin cancers removed with Mohs surgery before he started his presidency,” the medical report read. “There are no areas suspicious for skin cancers at this time.”

DeSantis Blasts Disney’s “Stupid Activism”

1945: Potsdam Conference – Harry Truman, Joseph Stalin, and Winston Churchill hold 1st post-World War II meeting.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) decried Disney’s “stupid activism” over his state’s Parental Rights in Education Act, which critics dubbed the “Don’t Say Gay” bill.

“What we’ve done, maybe better than any other state in the country, is we have drawn a very clear line in the sand that says our school system is for educating kids, not indoctrinating kids,” DeSantis said during remarks at the Moms for Liberty National Summit.

“We’ve also drawn a clear line in the sand that says parents have a fundamental role in the education of their kids.”

DeSantis said he was a bit surprised by the backlash from the Walt Disney Company following the bill’s enactment. He thought “the left would have their spasm,” but he “honestly didn’t think that companies were going to say anything again.”

“All I’m doing is trying to defend parents,” DeSantis said. “The reality is Americans are sick of some of these companies and their stupid activism.”

The governor continued, saying, “It’s one thing to advance things in the political arena, but when they can’t get things done through the ballot box, they use corporate power to do it and to impose a leftist agenda through corporate America.”

“You’ve got to be concerned about that.”

DeSantis also criticized President Joe Biden for record-breaking inflation and high gas prices.

“When you see Brandon blundering around, bad energy policy you see every time you go fill up gas, and there’s the grocery bills — there’s a lot to be pessimistic about, particularly in terms of Washington, D.C.,” he said, noting that “in the state of Florida … [the] sun is rising.”

Biden’s “Shameful” Fist Bump with Saudi Crown Prince Sparks Outrage

President Joe Biden was widely criticized for fist-bumping Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (MBS), who U.S. intelligence concluded was responsible for the murder of The Washington Post columnist and U.S. resident Jamal Khashoggi.

U.S. officials released an intelligence report last year finding that MBS was responsible for Khashoggi’s death, based on his “control of decision making in the Kingdom, the direct involvement of a key adviser and members of Muhammed bin Salman’s protective detail in the operation, and the Crown Prince’s support for using violent measures to silence dissidents abroad, including Khashoggi.”

During his presidential campaign, Biden said MBS was responsible for Khashoggi’s murder and vowed to “make them pay the price and make them, in fact, the pariah that they are.” As such, the friendly greeting caught many by surprise.

The interaction quickly garnered many critics across the political spectrum, including The Washington Post CEO Fred Ryan.

“The fist bump between President Biden and Mohammed bin Salman was worse than a handshake – it was shameful. It projected a level of intimacy and comfort that delivers to MBS the unwarranted redemption he has been desperately seeking,” Ryan said in a statement.

WaPo reporter Tyler Pager noted that the “Saudi government [was] quick to post photos of the fist bump between Biden and MBS.”

Author Brahma Chellaney said: “Biden lectures the world on morality, including using ‘moral outrage’ as a weapon to rally support against Russia. But his pilgrimage to Saudi Arabia betrays his false moralizing. His trip essentially is about cozying up to the mastermind of Jamal Khashoggi’s ghastly murder.”

“A fist bump for the Saudis and the middle finger to Texas, Colorado, Alaska, North Dakota, and New Mexico, who stand ready to produce the oil Biden is begging Saudi Arabia for,” Rep. Byron Donalds (R-FL) said. “America LAST.”

Biden Slammed For “Creepy” Interaction with Child [Video]

President Joe Biden was slammed by critics as “creepy” after a new video of him whispering into a little girl’s ear gained viral attention on social media.

A Twitter user posted a 14-second video earlier this week, writing: “Dad ran into Joe on a biking trail in Delaware and got a live sniffing video.”

In the video, Biden poses for a photo with a woman and a young girl, presumably her child. Biden lowers his head and whispers something in the girl’s ear.

The video quickly spread online, with many critics calling it “creepy.”

“Just a creepy weirdo,” tweeted John Cardillo.

David Cotterill tweeted: “Creepy as f—k.”

“Why is he unable to stop doing this creepy behavior,” asked former UFC fighter Jake Shields.

Former NFL player Derek Anderson tweeted: “Not sure why people let their kids around this dude!”

This isn’t the first time Biden has been criticized for this behavior. In 2019, the New York Post published an op-ed entitled “‘Gropey Uncle’ Joe Biden has always been creepy and should stay out of 2020 race.”

In 2015, New York Magazine highlighted “9 Times Joe Biden Creepily Whispered in Women’s Ears.” Despite title’s phrasing, two of the instances featured children.

‘Read the Polls, Jack’: Biden Lashes Out at Reporter [Video]

President Joe Biden lashed out at a reporter after he was asked to comment on a recent poll that found a majority of Democrats would prefer a different candidate in 2024.

“Mr. President, what’s your message to Democrats who don’t want you to run again?” the reporter asked.

“They want me to run,” Biden said from a distance.

“Two thirds say they don’t,” the reporter responded.

“Read the polls,” Biden said, approaching the reporter. “Read the polls, Jack!”

“You guys are all the same,” he continued. “That poll showed that 92 percent of Democrats, if I ran, would vote for me.”

When the reporter pointed out that, in fact, “a majority of Democrats say they don’t want you to run again in 2024,” Biden insisted that the reporter had it wrong.

“No, 92 percent said if I did [run again], they’d vote for me,” Biden said.

The reporter was referencing a new New York Times/Sienna College poll that found 64% of Democrats would prefer a different candidate for their party’s presidential ticket in 2024.

The 92% figure does appear in the poll — but it wasn’t related to a question about whether he should seek reelection. Instead, 92% of Democratic respondents said they would still vote for Biden if it was between him and former President Donald Trump.

Most Democrats Want Someone Other Than Biden in 2024: Poll

Most Democrats would rather have a different candidate than incumbent President Joe Biden as the party’s nominee in 2024, according to a new poll.

The New York Times/Siena College poll found that 64 percent of Democrats said they’d prefer a different candidate. Only 26% of Democrats said they would support Biden in 2024.

Thirty-three percent of poll participants cited age as their primary reason for wanting a different candidate, while 32% said job performance. Ten percent of respondents said Biden isn’t progressive enough for their liking.

Despite an overall lack of enthusiasm, 44% of respondents said they’d vote for Biden if the election were held today, while 41% said they’d vote for former President Donald Trump.

The poll marks the latest in a trend of dismal polls for Biden. Recently, another survey found that 76% of Americans think the U.S. is headed in the wrong direction.

Biden’s approval ratings have continued to dip. Last month, just 36% of Americans said they approve of his job as president.

Lauren Boebert Reported to FBI Over Biden Tweet

1804: Former United States Secretary of the Treasury Alexander Hamilton dies after being shot in a pistol duel the previous day by Vice President Aaron Burr.

Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) struck a nerve with a tweet about President Joe Biden, prompting critics to report her to the FBI.

“We need to terminate this presidency,” Boebert wrote on Twitter. “End quote. Repeat the line.”

The congresswoman was poking fun at Biden’s latest teleprompter gaffe, in which he apparently read instructions aloud.

During the speech, Biden mistakenly said the word “presidency” instead of pregnancy” while talking about abortion rights in the U.S. after the overturning of Roe v. Wade.

“Just last week, it was reported that a 10-year-old girl was a rape victim in Ohio — 10 years old — and she was forced to have to travel out of the state, to Indiana, to seek to terminate the presidency and maybe save her life,” Biden said last week.

According to Newsweek, dozens of Twitter users reported Boebert’s tweet to the FBI, arguing that it incited violence against Biden.

“Well, that sure sounds like a threat against the legitimately elected President of the United States, Squeaky,” writer Tara Dublin said. “Lock her up, [FBI]. End quote.”

“Why is Boebert not in custody? She is making threats,” one user tweeted to the FBI’s official account.

Another user tagged the FBI, writing: “Add my tweet to the growing list of tweets asking you to investigate Boebert for her comment that most of us perceive as a threat directed at [Biden].”

This isn’t the first time that Boebert has received criticism for her comments about Biden.

Boebert said she prays for Biden’s demise at an event in Colorado last month.

“I do want you to know that I pray for our president. Psalm 109:8 says, ‘May his days be few and another take his office.’ Hallelujah! Glory to God,” Boebert said on June 11.

Former congressional candidate Russell Foster (D) publicly condemned Boebert’s remark.

“So Lauren Boebert is praying for the death of President Biden at a church camp in front of the campers,” Foster tweeted. “How very ‘Christian’. That she gets wooed and applause for it is even viler.”
