( – President Joe Biden doesn’t even know what he is talking about. Everyone is noticing his decline. Everyone except the mainstream media.

Last week, Biden was asked if his administration will consider delaying the end of Title 42, a pandemic immigration restriction that allows for fast deportation of migrants illegally crossing our border in the name of stopping the circulation of COVID-19.

Biden replied, “No. What I’m considering is continuing to hear from my — my — First of all, there’s gonna be an appeal by the Justice Department. Because as a matter of principle, we want to be able to be in a position where if, in fact, it is strongly concluded by the scientists that we need Title 42 that we’d be able to do that. But there has been no decision on extending Title 42.”

It turned out he was talking about mask mandates on airplanes and other forms of transportation. That raises the issue of consistency: If the administration will continue to push masks on planes because COVID is still a threat, isn’t Title 42 protecting against that same threat?

On Friday, Biden tried to comment on Florida’s new Parental Rights in Education law and came out with this word salad: “There’s nothing conservative about deciding you’re going to throw Disney out of its present posture because Mickey Mouse? In fact, do you think we should be not be able to say, you know, ‘gay’? I mean, what’s going on here?”

On Easter Sunday, a reporter at the White House asked Biden about Afghanistan. As he started answering the question, a staffer in an Easter bunny costume appeared, waving her arms in front of Biden’s face and ushering him along to a different part of the event.

It has people asking, who is really running the show at the White House? The president often makes comments about what he’s “allowed” to say, how many press questions he’s permitted to take and which specific reporters he can call on. Who is making these decisions? Is Joe Biden the president or not?

We can all see that Biden is declining, but now we’re supposed to disregard what we see with our own eyes.

CNN’s Chris Cillizza wrote about various Republican officials questioning Biden’s awareness: “This is the sort of gross, lowest-common-denominator politics that drive people away from public life. If Republicans have some sort of proof that Biden is declining, they should bring it forward. If they don’t, they should stop doing what they’re doing. Immediately.”

The proof is in front of our faces. It is time for the mainstream media to stop ignoring it.

( – House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, the long-serving Democrat from California, refuses to investigate where covid 19 came from. According to Peter Schweizer, the author of “Red-Handed: How American Elites Get Rich Helping China Win,” is due to her very close financial ties to China and that includes her husband. 

Investigations could potentially be launched by House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), but Schweizer has said that Speaker Pelosi should not be let off the hook so easily and needs to answer questions about her financial endeavors in China.

It is no secret that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) plays a heavy role in nearly everything that happens in China, making it virtually impossible to avoid them if a foreign national wants to do business in the country.

On Pelosi’s Chinese investments, Schweizer said, “She and her family have strong financial ties in China,” adding, “The covid investigation, to me, is particularly important. I mean, it’s been now more than two years – covid’s happened. In the House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi has refused for there to even be a committee hearing on the origins of covid.”

As yet, there has been not a single committee hearing on the wu-flu’s origins and it has been clear for some time now, that the disease did not originate in a wet market in Wuhan, China.

“There’s not been one committee hearing to say, ‘Hey, maybe we should discuss to see where it came from.’ And honestly, I think one of the reasons, as I point out in the book, is she and her family have strong financial ties in China.”

According to Schweizer, Pelosi’s husband and son have also made a ton of money from deals done with the CCP and evidence suggests that the entire Pelosi family is heavily invested in China. Nancy also has questions surrounding her conduct around stock trading.

When recently asked whether or not members of Congress should be able to trade on the stock exchange, Pelosi stated that they should be allowed to, as they are private citizens and that should be their right to do so. However, when you literally control the laws of the land, including legislation that directly affects the stock market – it is beyond a conflict of interest at that point.

Sadly, whatever good was left in Pelosi has been seeping out for years now and we are all left with a third in charge, a corrupt leader, who is only interested in furthering her own agenda for the big bucks.

“She used to be quite critical on Beijing on human rights,” Schweizer says about Pelosi, noting that “she’s really pivoted” in recent years. “That has changed almost entirely.”

“So, if McCarthy comes in, I hope that those investigations happen and he has the power with some congressional committees to actually issue subpoenas. So, how about we have subpoenas and have Hunter Biden and others actually testify under oath about what’s going on.”

It appears that Pelosi may know more about the origins of covid than she lets on about and the fact that she refuses to speak on it, suggests that she may have a reason to hide these as it would undoubtedly expose her own ties and dirty deals with the CCP.

( – If you thought commute times were bad on California freeways before, just wait until after a new bill in the California Legislature becomes law. Democrats in the State Assembly are proposing banning freeway expansion because it’s “racist” to expand in communities with minorities — which is large portions of the state. 

The bill, A.B. 1778, was passed by the Assembly Transportation Committee this week. If adopted by the full Legislature and signed by Governor Gavin Newsom (D), it would outlaw the construction of new freeway lanes in most of the state. Instead, your tax dollars would be diverted to green energy and “racial equality” projects. 

Cristina Garcia, a Los Angeles Democrat and the bill’s author, spoke during the committee meeting and explained that creating new freeways is racist because it displaces low-income residents — who she identifies as minorities. 

Carl DeMaio, chairman of Reform California, says the proposal “a ridiculous excuse” to impose punishment on those that drive cars in a desperate attempt to force the usage of public transportation.

“Screaming ‘racism’ at the top of their lungs has worked well in the past for these Democrat politicians and no one has challenged them – so I’m not surprised they are shamefully trying to claim that inanimate objects like freeways are now racist,” DeMaio says.

DeMaio says the absurd claim of racist highways is simply a cover for Democrats to justify the theft of transportation funds.

“California Democrats were all about expanding freeways when they wanted to raise our car and gas taxes – but we know they were lying just to get our money,” DeMaio says. “California Democrats will never expand our freeways because they are trying to impose enough pain on drivers to force them out of their cars,” DeMaio noted.

A.B. 1778 says it is “addressing inequities through environmental justice” because freeways were mapped through black and brown communities after WWII.

The bill targets these areas by using the Healthy Places Index, which depicts areas of the state with lower quality of living. Measurements are based on standards such as healthcare, housing, and education. 

However, DeMaio points out that the Healthy Places Index is a flawed way of measuring impact on minorities, as most of the state is rated low on the scale. Only the San Francisco Bay area, Sacramento, and most coastal communities are rated highly.

“Using the Healthy Places Index as your metric, most of the state is not ‘healthy,’ and that includes regions where there aren’t any major freeways for miles,” says Carl DeMaio. “Freeway expansion is needed in the cities not because of racism, but because they’re major cities with millions of residents and massive congestion problems.”

DeMaio says the real goal of the bill is to attack drivers and get more cars off the road.

“This is just one more thing in the long list of attacks on drivers in the name of forcing usage of public transportation: increasing gas taxes, adding a Mileage Tax, increasing car registration fees, removing driving lanes in favor of bike lanes, and more,” explained DeMaio.

( – The New York Post’s Miranda Devine and Jon Levine are out with another doozie looking at how often the now-first son’s closest business partner was lurking around the White House while Biden was VP during the Obama administration. 

The Post’s look at White House visitor logs between 2009 and 2015 found that Eric Schwerin, “Hunter Biden’s closest business partner made at least 19 visits to the White House and other official locations between 2009 and 2015, including a sitdown with then-Vice President Joe Biden in the West Wing” when Schwerin was “president of the since-dissolved investment fund Rosemont Seneca Partners.”

This fact, of course, makes President Biden’s claims that he was unaware of Hunter Biden’s business dealings increasingly dubious. 

Other meetings between Schwerin found in the White House logs reported by The Post include:

  • Meeting with Joe Biden aide Evan Ryan (10/28/2009)
  • Meeting with Jill Biden special assistant Meg Campbell (2/13/2010)
  • Meeting with Joe Biden assistant Michele Smith (10/24/2010)
  • Meeting with Joe Biden (11/17/2010)
  • Meeting with Joe Biden assistant Kellen Suber (8/22/2011)
  • Meeting with Jill Biden aide Betsy Massey (3/31/2012)
  • Meeting with Joe Biden assistant Michele Smith (2/7/2012)
  • Meeting with Joe Biden’s Director of Administration Faisal Amin (3/28/2013)
  • Meeting with Joe Biden assistant Kathy Chung (5/20/2013)

As The Post’s report explains, Hunter Biden’s business buddy “met with various close aides of both Joe and Jill Biden at key moments in Hunter’s life when he was striking multi-million dollar deals in foreign countries, including China.” And, as Devine and Levine point out from their work pouring over and reporting on the contents of Hunter Biden’s laptop, emails from that device show that Schwerin “was involved in Joe Biden’s personal taxes and discussed the vice president’s financial future with him.”

What’s more, then-Vice President Biden hired a Rosemont Seneca Partners employee to be a personal assistant, someone The Post previously reported “stayed in close contact with her former bosses, keeping them apprised of visiting dignitaries and official events they might have interest in.”

And Joe Biden now expects Americans to believe he was unaware of Hunter’s business deals — even while Schwerin worked on Joe Biden’s taxes and planned for his financial future and Hunter’s former employee was working for VP Biden while feeding intel back to Rosemont Seneca?

Adding to the murkiness of the relationship between Joe Biden, Hunter Biden, and Schwerin inside and outside of the White House is the fact that the Wikipedia entry for Rosemont Seneca Partners was conveniently deleted on Wednesday. Reasoning that the investment firm was “not notable,” Wikipedia joined in the memory-holing of the business’ existence and an editor quoted by The Post “warned that ‘keeping it around’ ran the risk of the page becoming ‘a magnet for conspiracy theories about Hunter Biden.'”

The reasoning is as tone-deaf as it is biased toward protecting the Biden family. The New York Post’s reporting on Hunter Biden’s laptop from hell was deemed a conspiracy theory, banned from Twitter, and labeled “disinformation” by supposedly serious Democrat national security leaders…until after Joe Biden was declared the winner in 2020.

( – White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki has a new excuse for inflation almost weekly, but her newest claim might be the craziest one yet.

Democrats first blamed the inflation spike on transitory factors. Then they said it was due to supply chain issues.

Then President Joe Biden and White House press secretary Jen Psaki sought to pin inflation on Russian President Vladimir Putin’s decision to invade Ukraine.

They have even blamed oil companies for taking too much profit.

Now, the Democrats’ argument apparently is, “Sure, inflation’s bad, but it’s outside of our control, and Republicans would do no better.”

Last week, the party tweeted, “Republicans still have no plan to fight inflation.”

This latest tactic is built on a talking point Psaki floated in November.

“The president is using every weapon in his arsenal to fight inflation,” she told reporters at the time.

“What are the Republicans putting forward?” Psaki asked. “They’re screaming from a bullhorn. They’re tweeting about it. They have absolutely no plan.”

“What the American people should know and understand is that the president has had a plan to fight the pandemic, to address price increases, to keep the supply chain moving,” the press secretary said.

Republicans warned back in the spring of 2021 that passing the $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan would be inflationary. The legislation garnered no GOP support because so little of it had to do with directly responding to the pandemic.

According to USA Facts, the bill included over $413.6 billion for stimulus checks, $350 billion for state and local governments, $242.4 billion for enhanced unemployment benefits, $170.5 billion for schools, $88.5 billion for enhanced child tax credits, $87.7 billion for transportation and $21.6 billion for rental and utility assistance payments.

Much of this money was “printed” by the Federal Reserve buying the debt, flowing even more money into the nation’s economy. The amount of the national debt held by the Fed increased from $3.5 trillion prior to the pandemic to $6.1 trillion by the end of last year.

Last fall, Republicans universally opposed Biden’s $1.9 trillion Build Back Better proposal, both because the nation couldn’t afford it and because it would be inflationary.

Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia agreed and, along with Sen. Krysten Sinema of Arizona, blocked the legislation.

Another aspect of the Republican plan was keeping Trump’s pro-energy development policies in place. Under his leadership, the U.S. became the top oil producer in the world in 2018 — for the first time since 1973.

Market watchers have blamed inflation in part on Biden’s energy policies.

In the early days of Biden’s presidency, he signed executive orders under the auspices of addressing climate change that included suspending oil and gas exploration leasing on federal lands and reinstating an Obama-era carbon dioxide emission federal fee on oil-drilling operations, which had been lowered significantly under Trump.

Additionally, the Biden administration shut down oil exploration in the Arctic Wildlife Preserve, limited oil exploration in the National Petroleum Reserve in Alaska and canceled the Keystone XL Pipeline from Canada.

Now, the U.S. is producing over 1 million fewer barrels a day than at its pre-pandemic peak under Trump.

Nonetheless, Biden continued to blame Putin in a Wednesday tweet.

Last month, Republicans introduced the American Energy Independence from Russia Act. Among other provisions, it would immediately approve the Keystone XL Pipeline and restart oil and gas leasing on federal lands and waters.

Psaki and the Democrats  may say Republicans have no plan to address inflation. However, the GOP’s plan is to do pretty much the exact opposite of what the Democrats have done.

( – Former President Barack Obama in a major speech on Thursday called for more regulation of social media content, in order to diminish “disinformation.”

The former president delivered a speech on the issue at Stanford University after spending months studying the subject.

He described himself as “pretty close to a First Amendment absolutist” but immediately clarified that it did not apply to social media companies.

“The First Amendment is a check on the power of the state. It doesn’t apply to private companies like Facebook and Twitter,” he said, calling for more “value judgements” on content moderation and censorship on social media.

“While content moderation can limit the distribution of clearly dangerous content, it doesn’t go far enough,” Obama added.

The former president complained that current content models for social media platforms allowed all content to flow equally.

“Over time we lose our capacity to distinguish between fact, opinion, and wholesale fiction. Or maybe we just stop caring,” he said.

Obama also complained that an overwhelming flood of information made it difficult to discern the truth.

“Our brains aren’t accustomed to taking in this much information this fast, and a lot of us are experiencing overload,” he said.

Obama warned that dangerous people were using social media to distract the public.

“People like Putin and Steve Bannon for that matter understand it’s not necessary for people to believe disinformation in order to weaken democratic institutions, you just have to flood the public square with enough raw sewage,” he complained.

The former president argued for a series of social media reforms and regulation, warning the nature of democracy itself was at stake.

He complained there was no way to distinguish online between “a peer-reviewed article by Dr. Anthony Fauci and a miracle cure pitched by a huckster.”

The wide variety of content on the coronavirus and vaccines, Obama said, was concerning, as some people chose not to get vaccinated.

“People are dying because of misinformation,” he said.

Obama noted that content moderation by tech companies already exists, but argued for more moderation, even though disinformation is difficult to identify.

“That doesn’t mean some things aren’t truer than others. Or that we can’t draw lines between opinions, facts, honest mistakes, intentional deceptions,” he said.

The former president laid out a set of principles of how content should be moderated, either by tech companies themselves or by a government entity:

Whether it strengthens or weakens the prospects for a healthy inclusive democracy.

Whether it encourages robust debate and respect for our differences.

Whether it reinforces rule of law and self-governance.

Whether it helps us make collective decisions based on the best available information.

Whether it recognizes the rights and freedoms and dignity of all of our citizens.

“Regulation has to be part of the answer,” Obama said, calling for ways to start “slowing the spread of harmful content” online.

Obama expressed regret that he believed, prior to the 2016 election, that the public could still distinguish fact from fiction on social media, even though he suffered personally and politically from disinformation.

“What does still nag at me was my failure to fully appreciate at the time just how susceptible we had become to lies and conspiracy theories,” he said.

The former president cited the principles in the “Fairness Doctrine,” widely criticized by the conservative movement, to help control what kind of information was allowed in broadcasting. He also called for social media algorithms to be regulated by government inspectors and regulators, just like other industries.

Obama recalled what he described as the happier days of the internet, when he was first elected president. “In the early days of the internet and social media, there was a certain joy of finding new ways to connect and organize … there was so much promise,” he said. “I know — I was there.”

Obama expressed sadness that the internet and socialism has had “a grimness to it” since he left office, and called for change.

“We have a choice right now: Do we allow our democracy to wither? Or do we make it better?” he said.

( – Less than a month before one of the most consequential decisions of his presidency is supposed to take effect, President Joe Biden was asked on Thursday if he’d given any thought to reversing course on a policy that’s going to swell the flood of illegal immigration that’s already reached historic proportions.

He answered about something completely different.

In a statement released by the White House shortly after he spoke, Biden admitted his mistake. But by then, it was too late.

The moment came when Biden was meeting with reporters at the White House and was asked if he was having second thoughts about his decision to stop invoking Title 42, a law that makes it easier to deport illegal immigrants because of public health concerns.

Biden’s response focused on a separate subject entirely — the Monday ruling by a federal judge in Florida that ended the Biden administration’s mandate requiring masks for travelers on public transportation, such as airplanes and trains.

“What I’m considering is continuing to hear from my, uh, my — first of all, there’s going to be an appeal by the Justice Department,” Biden said.

“Because as a matter of principle, we want to be able to be in a position where if, in fact, it is strongly concluded by the scientists that we need Title 42, that we’d be able to do that. But there has been no decision on extending Title 42.”

That would have been a dodgy answer even if it had anything to do with the question. But what Biden had clearly done was confuse one of the few remaining tools for immigration authorities to hinder the flood of illegal migrants with a widely detested mandate forcing Americans to wear masks aboard airplanes.

That’s not the behavior of a man a sane country wants making decisions in the White House.

Naturally, liberals turned out desperately to try to defend Biden’s gaffe, but even the White House admitted it was indefensible.

“I want to clarify that, in comments at the conclusion of my remarks this morning, I was referring to the CDC’s mask mandate and there is no Department of Justice action on Title 42,” Biden said in a written statement distributed less than two hours after the briefing, according to The Hill.

( – While on the road in California this week, Vice President Kamala Harris made a stop at Vandenburg Space Force Base north of Los Angeles to announce a new U.S. policy that again handicaps U.S. defense capabilities when it comes to ensuring foreign threats are able to be deterred or destroyed. 

As ABC7 reported, “the vice president announced that the United States is committing to a ban on destructive, anti-satellite missile testing, and calling on other countries to do the same.” The Biden administration’s ban comes after Russia and China have already carried out such tests in the past and are unlikely to heed the Biden administration’s request that they stop pursuing offensive space capabilities. 

If the U.S. sticks to Harris’ commitment, that puts America at a disadvantage in space against foreign foes who may seek to take out critical satellites and now know there won’t be a retaliatory hit from the United States. So, not exactly the “peace through strength” that’s necessary to deal with nations like China and Russia. 

Harris also, in the course of her remarks to Space Force Guardians, attempt to explain…space. In a section of her remarks delivered Monday, ones that were reminiscent of her comments on the “significance of the passage of time,” she really went for it:

“I think everyone here recognizes how extraordinary space is,” Harris said. “Whether it is satellites that orbit the earth, humans that land on the moon, or telescopes that peer into the furthest reaches of the universe, space is exciting,” she told the Space Force Guardians who presumably were already aware of what space is. “It spurs our imaginations, and it forces us to ask big questions,” Harris added. “Space, it affects us all — and it connects us all.” 

Thank you, space cadet Harris. 

( – Apparently bypassing Joe Biden, Manchin today dressed down the Secretary of State for negotiating concessions for Iran in order to access their oil production. Manchin declared himself “particularly worried” that Blinken and his team would de-list the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) from the State Department’s list of terrorist organizations — especially since they’re still funding terror proxies.

Manchin stated, “I am particularly worried about reports that you might be considering removing the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) from the State Department’s Foreign Terrorist Organization list in the hopes that trade relations can be reestablished with Iran to assist with our energy crisis.” He went on to suggest, “Congress has the opportunity to pass additional bipartisan energy legislation to further expand our ability to deliver the energy our allies and partners need. We cannot and should not look to Iran to solve our energy problems.”

With that in mind, Manchin’s “respectful request” to have the White House provide a “detailed briefing” and an opportunity for Congress to have “due process” on the renewed Iran deal sounds like a shot across Biden’s bow. Manchin makes that almost explicit in his final point, in which he pledges to “do everything in my power to ensure we do not repeat the mistakes of the past.”

In other words, Manchin’s not going to go along this time, either. One has to wonder just how many other Senate Democrats will, especially while Biden’s tapping bottom on job approval ratings and has clearly lost the confidence of the electorate.

Interestingly, Manchin doesn’t even make the best point about the idiocy of the current negotiations, which is that Biden’s working with Vladimir Putin on negotiations. That’s the same Vladimir Putin that Biden has accused of being a “war criminal,” not without justification, and called for his removal from power. An even better question than energy policy would be why Biden and Blinken are allowing Putin to craft American national-security policy at precisely the same moment that he’s threatening NATO and violating numerous treaties and conventions with his invasion of Ukraine.

( – Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis announced Tuesday that lawmakers would move to consider terminating Disney’s special district and privileges.

DeSantis urged the state legislature in a Tuesday press conference to pass bills eliminating special tax districts created prior to 1968 including Disney’s Reedy Creek Improvement District. Lawmakers are considering legislation in a special session to eliminate the districts, including Disney’s, which allows the company to function as its own municipal government and control functions such as taxation, land use, environmental protection and emergency medical services.

“I want to thank Speaker Sprowls and Senator Simpson for not only working obviously for the reapportionment but for stepping up and making sure that we make the sunset or the termination on those special districts happen, which I think is very important,” DeSantis said.

“The governor has consistently supported a more even, fair playing field for all businesses in Florida,” a spokesperson for DeSantis’ office stated. “Should a corporation be serving as a regulator and a business at the same time? Should a corporation get to avoid standard environmental permitting processes? Should a corporation engage in eminent domain? Other businesses don’t get these privileges.”

The move by DeSantis was not intended as retaliation against Disney for their public opposition to Florida’s Parental Rights in Education bill, the spokesperson told DCNF.

“It was unfortunate that Disney decided to wade into a political debate and attempt to undermine a common-sense law, enacted by a duly elected legislature and signed by a duly elected governor, with the support of the vast majority of Floridians,” the spokesperson said. “In fact, it was Disney that ‘retaliated’ by publicly vowing to ‘repeal’ or have the law ‘struck down.’”

Disney recently came under fire for opposing the bill, which banned classroom instruction on gender identity and sexual orientation for children in kindergarten through third grade. DeSantis signed the bill into law March 28.

Tensions escalated further when leaked videos purportedly revealed internal Disney company meetings in which employees and corporate leaders reportedly divulged plans to inject gay and transgender content into children’s programs and help employees medically transition their children to the opposite sex.
