(FreedomWire.org) – President Biden slammed “MAGA Republicans” during a speech at the Finishing Trades Institute in Pennsylvania, and people across social media skewered him for it. 

While giving the speech, Biden said, “MAGA Republicans are calling for defunding the police department.”

He added, “And the FBI now. That’s a good one. I like that one.”

Twitter users went to the platform and condemned the president’s rhetoric as either uninformed or dishonest.

For the last three years after the entire Democrat Party said they wanted the police across the country to either be defunded or disbanded, and now Biden staffers had the nerve to write this for the president to say out loud to the American people.

It’s true that some Republicans called for either defunding or abolishing the FBI after, among other things, their politically-motivated raid of former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home.

But the phony claim from Biden about Republicans “calling for defunding the police department” is just just wrong when you consider the fact that Democratic leaders are on record as agreeing with the anti-police sentiment of the Defund the Police movement and/or supporting efforts to yank money from police departments in order to “reallocate” it to social services programs.

(FreedomWire.org) – With the ruling D.C. establishment having successfully beaten back the midterm election challenges to their unchecked power by congressional candidates who were supported by former President Donald J. Trump, the job now turns to snuffing out the MAGA movement and, in the eyes of many, two former leaders with much in common will be spearheading the effort.

Two of Trump’s fellow White House alumni Barack Obama and George W. Bush will be will holding back-to-back “democracy” conferences following the expected announcement that he will be officially declaring a 2024 presidential run, something that the corrupt uniparty appears to be determined to prevent at all costs.

According to a report from Axios, the two conferences will highlight “rising threats from authoritarianism and disinformation — and how to combat them globally and at home,” which will inevitably lead to increased demands for censoring of dissenting voices on social media and the further demonization of the “MAGA Republicans” who were effectively designated as enemies of the state by President Joe Biden in his disgraceful “Soul of a Nation” speech.

On Wednesday, the George W. Bush Institute will hold “The Struggle for Freedom” event in Dallas to be highlighted with an appearance by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky who will converse with Bush.

The next day, the Obama Foundation will hold its “Democracy Forum” in New York City where the glowing figure at the center of the American liberal universe will “speak on the state of democracy and participate in a conversation with emerging leaders from around the world,” according to Axios.

“At a time when democracy is under threat around the world, the promise and potential of the next generation of leaders is more important than ever. The Forum will bring attention to the biggest challenges democratic institutions face today and showcase democracy in action around the world. We will bring together hundreds of emerging leaders from across Obama Foundation programs, leading experts, and practitioners who are reimagining our institutions and protecting democratic values,” the Obama Foundation’s website bills the event.

The contrast of differing visions of “freedom” and “democracy” couldn’t be more clear than the two celebrated former presidents aligned against Trump, a man who unlike his predecessors and successor Joe Biden, did not start any new foreign wars, instead he chose to use his influence to advocate for peace, not a big moneymaker for the special interests that rule the roost inside of the Beltway.

Bush’s eight-year tenure was marked by wars in Iraq and Afghanistan turning both countries into sinkholes of carnage where obscene amounts of American blood and treasure to promote “democracy” were squandered.

The nation’s 43rd president, using the terrorist attacks of September 1, 2001 as a pretense also implemented the vast domestic surveillance apparatus that would later be abused by Obama for political means, including as Trump has contended, spying on his campaign and transition teams before and after his election in 2016.

In addition to turning the system intended to protect the American populace against those who hate us for our way of life upon law-abiding citizens as documented by the evidence of domestic surveillance programs leaked by whistleblower Edward Snowden, Obama took particular relish in droning innocent civilians, further contributing to animosity against Americans.

Both men are also bonded by their hatred of Trump, with it being intensely personal for Bush after Trump emasculated his younger brother Jeb during the 2016 primaries, single-handedly sparing the nation from a third Bush presidency.

According to Axios, “Bush and Obama — a Republican and a Democrat respectively — didn’t coordinate their timing, organizers say. But their events — Bush’s is Nov. 16 in Dallas and Obama’s is Nov. 17 in New York — are happening the week after the U.S. midterm elections.”

People aren’t buying that it wasn’t planned, and also if Obama and Bush are the spokesmen for misinformation.

(FreedomWire.org) – During Wednesday’s White House press conference, Fox News reporter Peter Doocy asked press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre if President Biden thinks Republican voters are a threat to Democracy.

Ahead of the midterms, Democrats and the White House have warned about candidates who deny the legitimacy of the 2020 presidential election, and have called Make America Great Again (MAGA) Republicans “a threat to democracy.”

“Following up on your comment that there is an alarming number of Republicans who are saying they’re not gonna accept election results, does that mean that President Biden thinks it is a threat to democracy if somebody votes Republican?” Doocy asked.

“No, that’s a ridiculous question, no,” Jean-Pierre said.

“Why is that a ridiculous question?” he asked.

“Because the American people should have their right to vote for whomever they want. Voting is a sacred right, it is something that the president wants to protect at every turn, and he has done that. He has taken actions to protect the right to vote, and you see Democrats in Congress also doing the work to protect the right to vote,” Jean-Pierre said. “We are talking about mega-MAGA Republican officials who have been very clear about this, who say they are pro-police but then are also pro-insurrectionist. You cannot be pro-police and pro-insurrectionist. Who also say they want to defund the FBI. That is a problem.”

Doocy then asked if Democrats and Republicans should be equally condemned for denying election results. The press secretary responded that the president will “call out any rhetoric” that threatens political violence, regardless of party affiliation.

During a speech in September, Biden said, “Too much of what’s happening in our country today is not normal. Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans represent an extremism that threatens the very foundations of our republic.”

He claimed so-called “MAGA Republicans” do not “respect the Constitution. They do not believe in the rule of the law. They do not recognize the will of the people. They refuse to accept the results of a free election.”

(FreedomWire.org) – From Ray Epps – to opening the magnetic doors from the inside – to the dozens of fed operatives in the crowd – to firing flash bombs and gas canisters on unsuspecting grandmas and seniors – to the mass arrests of hundreds of innocent Trump supporters who were waved into the US Capitol.

Now we have the proof that it was all a setup and the entire thing was filmed by a pre-staged camera crew.

On Thursday CNN released never-before-seen footage of Nancy Pelosi and Mitch McConnell inside the US Capitol on January 6, 2021 — the two people who refused to call in the National Guard prior to that day and during the rioting.

The footage was filmed by Nancy’s daughter Alexandra. Nancy’s son-in-law was outside filming the insurrection.

It was all staged.

In newly released video footage from January 6, 2021, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi threatens to assault then-President Donald Trump.

The video clip, recorded by Nancy Pelosi’s filmmaker daughter, Alexandra Pelosi, was released Thursday during the January 6 House committee hearings. An extended version of the clip was later aired on CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360.”

At the time of the recorded video, Trump was holding a “Stop the Steal” rally at the Ellipse, approximately two miles from the Capitol.

The clip begins with Pelosi’s chief of staff, Terri McCullough, explaining to the House speaker that the Secret Service has convinced Trump not to join his supporters at Capitol Hill because of safety concerns.

Pelosi responded, that she’s “gonna punch him out” for “trespassing on the Capitol grounds.” In her words:

“I hope [Trump] comes. I’m gonna punch him out! This is my moment. I’ve been waiting for this—for trespassing on the Capitol grounds. I’m gonna punch him out and I’m gonna go to jail and I’m gonna be happy.”

Trump ultimately decided not to march with protesters at the Capitol.

During the House committee hearing on Thursday, Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.) argued during his opening statements, “What Donald Trump proceeded to do after the 2020 election is something no president has done before in our country.”

Thompson called Trump’s questioning of the election a “staggering betrayal of his oath” and accused him of planning “an attack on a pillar of our democracy.”

“It’s still hard to believe,” said Thompson. “But the facts and testimony are clear, consistent, and undisputed.”

The committee unanimously voted to subpoena Trump to testify under oath. The former president posted his reaction to the vote on social media.

“Why didn’t the Unselect Committee ask me to testify months ago? Why did they wait until the very end, the final moments of their last meeting? Because the Committee is a total ‘BUST’ that has only served to further divide our Country which, by the way, is doing very badly,” Trump posted on Truth Social.

(FreedomWire.org) – White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre responded to the now former Los Angeles City Council President Nury Martinez’s racist remarks by pointing fingers at Republicans.

A leaked audio recording from October 2021 caught Martinez, a Democrat, saying that a white councilman, Mike Bonin, treated his black son like an “accessory” and a “little white kid,” then referred to the child as a “parece changuito,” which translates to “like a monkey.” Martinez resigned from her position as president Monday, and announced Tuesday that she is taking a leave of absence.

In addition to Martinez’s remarks on the child, Councilman Kevin de León compared Bonin’s handling of his son at the Martin Luther King Jr. parade to Martinez holding a Louis Vuitton bag. Martinez criticized Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascon, saying “f*ck that guy, he’s with the blacks.”

Martinez replied by calling the child a “su negrito,” a racially demeaning term in the Spanish language, the audio found.

Martinez announced Tuesday that she is taking a leave of absence from the council following the public outcry and demonstrations that have erupted at the Los Angeles City Hall. She and De Leon, plus Councilman Gil Cedillo and Los Angeles County Federation of Labor President Ron Herrera, have all apologized for the incident.

The press secretary said the four participants in the recorded conversation should resign from their positions on the council. She then claimed that Democrats hold one another accountable for racist and anti-Semitic remarks while “MAGA [Make America Great Again] Republicans” support it.

“The president is glad to see that one of the participants in that conversation has resigned but they all should. He believes that they all should resign. The language that was used and tolerated during that conversation was unacceptable and it was appalling,” Jean-Pierre said. “They should all step down and here’s the difference between Democrats and MAGA Republicans. When Democrats say something racist of anti-Semitic, we hold them, we hold Democrats accountable.

“When a MAGA Republican says something racist or anti-Semitic, they are embraced by cheering crowds and become celebrated and sought after in endorsements,” she continued.

The press secretary named Republican Alabama Sen. Tommy Tuberville stating that Democrats support reparations because they believe “the people who do crime are owed that” at a Trump rally Saturday and Republican Pennsylvania gubernatorial candidate Doug Mastriano for criticizing his opponent for sending his child to Bryn Mawr’s Jack M. Barrack Hebrew Academy, a Jewish school.

“The president used to say and I quote the president right now, ‘hate never goes away, it only hides, but lately it’s out in the open at these extreme MAGA rallies,’” she said.

Will Biden be held accountable for his racist remarks?

(FreedomWire.org) – Fox News correspondent Peter Doocy asked White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre on Tuesday if she believes the 2016 election was “stolen” following criticisms by President Biden against the GOP.

Jean-Pierre: “Oh, I knew this was coming!”

Doocy: “…in 2016 Trump stole an election. You tweeted…”

Jean-Pierre: “I was waiting Peter when you were gonna ask me that question. (Laughs.)

Doocy: “Well, here we go. You tweeted Trump stole an election. You tweeted Brian Kemp stole an election. If denying election results is extreme now, why wasn’t it then.?”

Jean-Pierre: “Yeah, so, let’s let’s be really clear. That, that comparison you made is just ridiculous. I have been…”

Doocy: “No, it’s not ridiculous”

Jean-Pierre: “…You’re asking, you’re asking me a question, let me answer it.”

Doocy: “And you said it was ridiculous.”

Jean-Pierre: “I was, I was talking specifically at that time of what was happening with voting rights and the, what was in danger of voting rights, that’s what I was speaking to at the time.”

Jean-Pierre tweeted on December 17, 2016 with no apparent context of voting rights, “Stolen emails, stolen drone, stolen election …..welcome to the world of #unpresidented Trump”

On March 12, 2019, Jean-Pierre said of the 2016 Georgia governor election in response to a comment claiming voter suppression and cheating, “Yes – the race was stolen.”

A year later on April 2, 2020, with no apparent context of voting rights, Jean-Pierre accused Kemp of stealing the election from Abrams, “Reminder: Brian Kemp stole the gubernatorial election from Georgians and Stacey Abrams.”

Last week, Biden slammed Republicans loyal to Trump as a threat to democracy, saying there was “no question that the Republican Party today is dominated, driven and intimidated by Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans. And that is a threat to this country.”

Doocy tried to get to the bottom of who exactly the President thinks is a threat to our country.

Many conservative critics, including on Fox News, have criticized Biden’s remarks as intentionally divisive and partisan ahead of the fall midterm elections.

(FreedomWire.org) – Left-leaning media figures on MSNBC, CNN, as well as number of Democrats, have attempted to defend and unpack President Biden’s comments in which he referred to “extreme MAGA” Republican philosophy as “semi-fascism.”

“What we’re seeing now is either the beginning or the death knell of an extreme MAGA philosophy,” Biden said during a Thursday Maryland fundraiser. “It’s not just Trump, it’s the entire philosophy that underpins the — I’m going to say something, it’s like semi-fascism.”

Several reporters and guests over the weekend attempted to decipher Biden’s statement, often clarifying that they did not believe it was a criticism of all, or even most Republicans. CNN national politics reporter Eva McKend said it seemed like Biden was attempting to “bring in” some Republicans to the fold with his words.

“It almost seemed like he was trying to call in some Republicans by delineating between MAGA Republicans and mainstream Republicans and try to bring them into the fold,” she said. 

CNN political commentator Errol Louis also provided his thoughts on Biden’s critique, arguing that despite being perhaps “harsher” than anticipated, it really just happened to be the “truth.”

“I think the president is laying out the terms of the debate in very stark terms. A little harsher than maybe some of us expected, but that happens to be the truth. It happens to be what’s at stake here,” Louis said.

The topic was also discussed at length on CNN Newsroom with Pamela Brown, in which the host asked CNN political commentator Maria Cardona if she felt that Biden’s “semi-fascist” comment aimed at millions of Americans was a mistake. 

“No, because the president actually didn’t call millions of Americans semi-fascists,” Cardona said. “He called the Republicans that are supporting the big lie that Joe Biden did not legitimately win the election—

“But that’s milli—that’s a lot of people,” Brown interjected. 

“But, why is that Pam?” Cardona replied. “It’s because Republican leaders from Donald Trump on down, to many that are in the Congress, many that are in the Senate, many that are on the ballot, many that are on the ballot going into the midterm elections who if elected would be in positions of power over elections and would overturn free and fair elections—that is fascism.”

The discusson continued on over at MSNBC, where “The Beat” host Ari Melber asked The Atlantic staff writer Mark Leibovich what he thought of Biden using “the f-word.”

“Well he said semi, so there was a modifier there,” Leibovich said. He added that Biden and his administration seemed much more “emboldened” to use that kind of language, and to discuss threats to democracy as an election issue heading into the midterms. 

MSNBC “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough felt that Biden did not go far enough in his comments, and instead should have outright called MAGA Republicans fascists. 

“I must say actually, for the most extreme saying semi-fascist leads me only to the question—what’s semi about that?” Scarborough said. “It’s full-on fascism.”

Only NBC’s Peter Alexander and CNN’s Don Lemon appeared to push back on the Biden administration’s latest description for Trump-friendly Republicans. 

Alexander suggested Sunday that Biden’s comment likening Trump’s philosophy to “semi-fascism” undercut his pledge to be a unifier.

Alexander noted that Biden’s more aggressive tone as of late “fires up Democrats” and “juices up the base.”

“But it also does become problematic because, you know, this is a guy who said he wants to be a unifier,” Alexander added.

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre defended Biden’s remarks during Friday’s press briefing. When asked if Biden respects Americans who voted for President Donald Trump in 2020, Jean-Pierre replied that the president was “pretty clear” with his comments. 

“I think he was pretty clear, and he was very powerful last night. Look, what the president said last night was that when it comes to MAGA Republicans, when it comes to the extreme, ultra wing of Republicans, they are attacking democracy, right? They are attacking, taking away rights and freedoms,” Jean-Pierre said.

She later noted that, between threats of violence, and voting rights, historians would agree that Biden simply “called it what it is.”

She later clashed with CNN’s Lemon last week over why he used the terminology.

Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chair Jaime Harrison on Sunday said that Biden was being “consistent” when calling the MAGA philosophy linked to former President Trump “semi-fascism” despite Biden’s own past calls for lowering the temperature on harsh rhetoric.

Earlier this year, President Biden rolled out a catchphrase trying to negatively characterize the GOP as “ultra-MAGA, referring to Trump’s “Make America Great Again” slogan. 

(FreedomWire.org) – President Biden has attempted to divert focus away from his own record and toward Donald Trump because he has been criticized on most of his administrations policies as the 2022 mid terms approach. “This is not the Republican Party of your father. This is a MAGA party, after all,” he declared last week during a news conference He referred to Trump as “the great MAGA king” in a speech on Wednesday.

“Under my predecessor — the great MAGA king — the deficit increased every single year he was president. The first year of my presidency, the first year, I reduced the deficit, literally reduced the deficit by $350 billion, first year,” Biden had said in remarks at an International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers conference in Chicago.

Jen Psaki, the outgoing White House press secretary, defended President Biden on Thursday for referring to his predecessor, former President Donald Trump, as “the great MAGA king.”

Psaki was asked whether the president’s statements were uniting during her daily press briefing by Fox News.

“Well, I would say that the president is not afraid to call out what he sees as extreme positions that are out of line with where the American people stand,” Psaki responded.

“And whether that is supporting a tax plan that will raise taxes on 75 million Americans making less than $100,000 a year, or whether it is supporting efforts to overturn Roe v. Wade, something that two-thirds of the American people in a Fox News poll, may I add, supported, and there are countless examples from there.”

“The president believes that there is still work we can do together,” she continued. “The bipartisan innovation is a good example of that. But again, he is not going to stand back and stand aside while people are pushing for extreme positions that are not in the interests or supported by the vast majority of the American people.”

Whether or not Mr Biden understands the actual meaning of the acronym is now under speculation as Trump has clearly taken the so-called jab as a compliment.

(FreedomWire.org) – Former Vice President Pence calls President Biden’s “MAGA crowd” extremism charge a “desperate” deflection by the administration “grasping for straws” due to its tanking approval rating.

Biden labeled MAGA as the “most extreme” political organization in recent U.S. history on Wednesday, in reaction to a leaked draft Supreme Court opinion overturning landmark abortion case Roe v. Wade, and support by Republicans for the end of federal protections for abortion and returning that power to states. 

“What are the next things that are going to be attacked?” Biden asked. “Because this MAGA crowd is really the most extreme political organization that’s existed in American history—-in recent American history.”

“With all due respect, President Biden sounds desperate. It sounds like the rhetoric of an administration grasping for straws,” Pence told Fox News Digital during an exclusive interview Saturday ahead of his commencement speech at Patrick Henry College in Virginia.

“I mean, look, the president’s approval rating speaks for itself. He is exploring of the bowels of American approval numbers in modern history. And it’s because the American people see the failed policies of this administration at home and abroad,” Pence continued.

Biden’s approval rating tumbled to the lowest point of his presidency, with just 33% of Americans approving of his job performance.

“And I think there’s no amount of, you know, any effort by this administration to demean the 74 million people that supported this [MAGA] movement. And millions of Americans who know our economy can be strong, our borders can be secure, and that that America can be respected on the world stage and our values can be respected in our courts, [values] that they love.”

Pence said that Biden’s dig at MAGA will likely have the opposite effect that he may have anticipated.
