Welcome to the Joe Biden Challenge!

All you have to do is name a single thing the leader of the free world can do competently. Hard, isn’t it?

Roll up, roll up, roll up, for there are prizes to be won! That’s right, ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, it’s time for the Joe Biden Challenge. And all you need to do to win the big game is, wait for it . . . name a single — yes, a single — thing that this president has demonstrated himself to be good at since he took office back on January 20.

There are a few rules, caveats, and provisos here, of course. First, this is a game of absolutes, so you can’t use any relative words such as “better,” “preferable,” or “improvement.” If he’s not good at it in a vacuum, it doesn’t count. Second, we’re talking about President Biden — you know, the man in charge — so you can’t skirt the inquiry by shouting “but Donald Trump!” And, third, this is not a matter of whether you agree or disagree with the president’s political views, or whether you voted for him in the 2020 election given the choices that were on offer. It’s much, much simpler than that. To win the game, you just have to find a single concrete virtue that Joe Biden brings to the table as the head of the executive branch of the federal government.

Tough, right? He’s not an ideas guy — indeed, it’s hard to conceive of a politician less likely to arrive at a coherent solution. He’s not an independent thinker. He doesn’t sit above the fray. And he’s more of a rambler than a listener, all told. As a communicator, he’s just awful. His speech is incomprehensible, his briefs are rarely mastered, and, on the rare occasions on which he has been permitted to try, he has proven unable to answer questions in an apprehensible manner. He has access to the bully pulpit, yes. But he has no idea how to use it. He is utterly, completely, unusually unpersuasive.

Another great act by the always awesome President Joe Biden! This proclamation again shows how America under President Biden is so much better than his predecessor who spent 4 years spewing hatred and division.

Thank you President Joe Biden for making America great again, again!! :130:
Biden tips hat to Indigenous

President Joe Biden on Friday issued the first-ever presidential proclamation of Indigenous Peoples’ Day, lending the most significant boost yet to efforts to refocus the federal holiday celebrating Christopher Columbus toward an appreciation of native peoples.

Biden also issued a proclamation of Columbus Day on Monday, Oct. 11, which is established by Congress.

“For generations, Federal policies systematically sought to assimilate and displace Native people and eradicate Native cultures,” Biden wrote in the Indigenous Peoples’ Day proclamation. “Today, we recognize Indigenous peoples’ resilience and strength as well as the immeasurable positive impact that they have made on every aspect of American society.”

In a separate proclamation on Columbus Day, Biden praised the role of Italian Americans in U.S. society, but also referenced the violence and harm Columbus and other explorers of the age brought about on the Americas.

“Today, we also acknowledge the painful history of wrongs and atrocities that many European explorers inflicted on Tribal Nations and Indigenous communities,” Biden wrote. “It is a measure of our greatness as a Nation that we do not seek to bury these shameful episodes of our past — that we face them honestly, we bring them to the light, and we do all we can to address them.”

It's a break from President Donald Trump's ardent defense of “intrepid heroes” like Columbus in his 2020 proclamation of the holiday.

“Sadly, in recent years, radical activists have sought to undermine Christopher Columbus’ legacy," Trump said at the time. “These extremists seek to replace discussion of his vast contributions with talk of failings, his discoveries with atrocities, and his achievements with transgressions.”

Great move by President Biden.
President Joe Biden signed several proclamations Friday to restore two sprawling national monuments in Utah that have been at the center of a long-running public lands dispute, and a separate marine conservation area in New England that recently has been used for commercial fishing.

Former President Barack Obama enlarged the federally protected area in Bears Ears in 2016 near the end of his administration. Trump cut it to about 200,000 acres. His administration also cut Grand Staircase-Escalante by nearly half, leaving it at about 1 million acres. Both monuments were created by Democratic presidents.

Biden Admits to Supreme Court: The ‘Forever War’ Is Not Over, After All

To the extent President Biden’s pull-out from Afghanistan was not criminally negligent, it was pervasively mendacious.

There was the president’s lamebrained targeting of September 11 as the withdrawal deadline — a strategic and propaganda boon for the Taliban. There was the stunningly backward plan to draw down forces before evacuating civilians and diplomats, which led to the mind-blowing Bagram bug-out. Thus the domino effect of U.S. mistakes: our inability to evacuate from a fortified, well-equipped airport, instead shifting operations to the impractical Kabul airport; our removal of the technical support (especially air support) that the Afghan forces needed; the Taliban rout of remaining Afghan provinces; and the jihadists’ inheritance of tens of billions of dollars in American weaponry (which is now at the disposal of terrorists who have designs on attacking Americans). The Taliban took the capital without firing a shot, placing the Haqqani network — notorious jihadists formally designated by the U.S. as an al-Qaeda aligned terrorist organization — in charge of security in the city.

You know what happened next. With the environment converted into a jihadist’s dream, ISIS bombings killed 13 American military personnel (the most we’d lost in years). In the aftermath, Biden’s desperation to be seen as doing something about the lethal mess he’d made resulted in a rash “retaliation” strike that managed to slaughter not terrorists but ten civilians, including a mistakenly targeted humanitarian aid worker and seven children.

In the chaotic air lift, Biden tried to run up the numbers of Afghans evacuated in order to change the subject from the Americans and pro-American Afghans he has left behind. The result is that tens of thousands of insufficiently vetted denizens of an anti-Western, sharia-supremacist culture will be resettled in the United States (investigations are already under way for child-sex and spousal-abuse offenses by some of the “refugees,” as well as the sexual assault of a female U.S. soldier by a group of Afghan men at a military complex in New Mexico).

By contrast, and to our nation’s enduring shame (as Jim Geraghty steadfastly continues to report), Biden left to the tender mercies of the jihadists scores of American citizens, untold thousands of green-card holders, and tens of thousands of pro-American Afghans who actually qualified for resettlement in our country by assisting our forces at great peril — as reports increasingly indicate, mortal peril — to themselves.

And now the administration has quietly acknowledged that, in effect, all of the disgrace and dishonesty have been in the service of a big lie — namely, that Biden has ended the “forever war.” He hasn’t . . . though he’s hoping you won’t notice.

SNIP

So just to be clear, President Biden has not ended the war, nor could he have given that the jihadist enemy has not been defeated and continues to target the United States and American interests worldwide. What Biden has done is restore to our terrorist enemies what they needed to carry out the 9/11 attacks that killed nearly 3,000 of our fellow Americans: an operational partnership with an anti-American sharia-supremacist regime in Afghanistan that gives them safe haven to recruit, train, and plan.

Panama official tells U.S. another 60,000 Haitians are on the way

No caravans sighted in Southern Mexico, but hundreds of Haitians coming over daily; Panama reports arrest of al-Qaeda operatives trying to blend in

EL PASO, Texas (Border Report) – Panama’s Foreign Minister was in Washington, D.C., this week to discuss migration and security issues with U.S. federal officials.

She then went on to tell American news outlets there’s a new wave of 60,000 citizens of Haiti and other countries making their way to the U.S. border.

“We have seen the growing phenomenon of irregular migration and have gained the attention of key actors,” Erika Mouynes said in a statement released by the Foreign Ministry after her meetings with Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, Special Envoy to Northern Triangle countries Ricardo Zuniga and others.

Mouynes told reporters more than 85,000 migrants headed north have passed through Panama since Jan. 1. With some 20,000 having already crossed into the U.S. at Del Rio, Texas, and other places, she said the rest are likely on the way.

Biden Administration: Parents Who Oppose Racism Are Domestic Terrorists
Crazy but true: Critics of the Biden administration's critical race ideology and coronavirus policies have been classified as domestic terror threats.

It is no coincidence that the Department of Justice heeded the National School Boards Association’s call for the Biden administration to target parents critical of critical race theory curricula and dubious coronavirus policies in schools by labeling them domestic terrorists and mobilizing the DOJ and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The administration’s National Strategy for Countering Domestic Terrorism mandates just such chilling action.

That little-discussed but hugely significant document codifies a War on Wrongthink, demanding that the full weight of the federal government and private-sector allies like Big Tech be brought to bear against dissenters from Biden regime orthodoxy. Consider “pillar four” of the strategy, titled “Confront Long-Term Contributors to Domestic Terrorism.” It reads in part:

…tackling the threat posed by domestic terrorism over the long term demands substantial efforts to confront the racism that feeds into aspects of that threat. We are, therefore, prioritizing efforts to ensure that every component of the government has a role to play in rooting out racism and advancing equity for under–served communities that have far too often been the targets of discrimination and violence. This approach must apply to our efforts to counter domestic terrorism by addressing underlying racism and bigotry.

On day one of the Biden presidency, the administration issued an executive order lamenting America’s “systemic racism.” In response, it called for the administration to pursue “an ambitious whole-of-government equity agenda.”

It also revoked the Trump administration’s executive order barring training of federal employees in “anti-American race … stereotyping and scapegoating” — an implicit reference to critical race theory and related critiques of America. This revocation could be seen as at minimum a tacit endorsement of CRT, as could the Biden administration’s dissolution of the Trump administration’s 1776 Commission, a group whose work could be seen as challenging CRT.

Democrats Belatedly Realize Joe Biden Is a Lousy Leader

On the menu today: Try not to spill anything as you laugh at Democrats as they realize in October 2021 that Joe Biden is a lousy leader, overpromising and underdelivering and stumbling badly when he needs to communicate clearly; two questions lurking in the background of the surprise resignation of Las Vegas Raiders head coach Jon Gruden; a horrific scandal in Loudon County Public Schools; and apparently, if you work at certain federal agencies, the vaccine mandate isn’t really much of a mandate.

Biden’s Party Is Making Some Unfortunate Discoveries about Him

We’ve got ships sitting 17 miles offshore, waiting nine days each for access to the port of Savannah. The backlogs and delays in international shipping are so severe that a supply-chain consultant told the Wall Street Journal this weekend, “If it wasn’t on the water four weeks ago, it’s not going to be here for Christmas.” The U.S. has 10.9 million unfilled jobs, another record, while the workforce-participation rate drags, particularly among women, despite the reopening of the nation’s schools. Gas prices are skyrocketing. Grocery prices are skyrocketing. In the words of CNN, “America’s economic recovery has hit a roadblock.” And the total U.S. public debt has reached $28.4 trillion.

If you look at the state of the country, there’s only one fitting reaction that comes to mind: “Let’s go Brandon.”

If you’re looking for a laugh amidst all the bad news, there’s the remarkable phenomenon of Joe Biden fans stumbling around in shock that things are going so poorly. CNN warns that, “Mounting problems test Biden’s presidency and Democrats’ hold on power.” FiveThirtyEight asks, “Why Has Biden’s Approval Rating Gotten So Low So Quickly?” Politico offers a headline that is a quote from Democratic strategist Simon Rosenberg: “The president’s decline is alarming.” (No, that’s not a reference to Biden’s mental abilities or memory.) The story accompanying that headline has some equally alarming quotes from other strategists:

“There is a malaise,” said Sarah Longwell, a moderate Republican strategist who became a vocal supporter of Biden in 2020, and led the focus group of Democratic voters. “People don’t feel like their lives have been improved. They did sort of feel that promises aren’t being kept.”

Joe Biden isn’t keeping his promises? Who could have seen that coming?

One of the reasons that covering presidential campaigns is less interesting than it used to be is that the primaries — and to a certain extent, the general election — have turned into contests in which candidates can make the biggest, most grandiose, and most unrealistic promises, and often, these candidates are numbskulls who doesn’t have the slightest idea how to bring those promises to fruition.

Really disappointing so many have replaced common sense, intelligence and making conscious decision's, for some new personal issue.
Kinda like Waco Texas years ago. People just need someone or something to cuddle them.

Out-of-touch Biden threatens private sector companies as polls nosedive

President Biden has figured out how to fix the supply chain problems that are pushing prices higher and frustrating consumers. His solution? Threaten the private sector.

That's what he did recently as he spoke of measures that are being taken to ease the shortages of workers and materials that are clogging ports and railyards, delaying shipments and adding to inflation.

Biden announced that, after weeks of negotiations, the Port of Los Angeles has joined the Port of Long Beach in allowing 24/7 operations, which is the norm for most such facilities around the world, but which conflicted with union contracts in California. Biden also said that FedEx, UPS and Walmart have agreed to initiate round-the-clock operations in a bid to shorten delivery times.

But Biden saved his fire for this remarkable statement: "If the private sector doesn't step up, we're going to call them out and ask them to act."

In other words, Biden suspects private corporations of not working hard enough to satisfy customers' needs in a timely manner. He seems to think that retailers are content to have bare shelves come Christmas, and that shipping firms don't worry that they will not get goods delivered to their destinations on time.

What on earth is he talking about?

Since, as usual, Biden took no questions from reporters after his remarks, we will never know.

SNIP

But Biden is not blameless. He and the Democrat-controlled Congress have helped cause an outsized surge in demand by unnecessarily pumping too much money into an already-hot economy. They have also contributed to a shortage of workers that is plaguing every aspect of the supply chain. By rolling out benefits like extended unemployment pay, rent subsidies and increased food stamps, all offered with no work requirements, Biden and Democrats in Congress reduced the pressure to get back on the job.

In addition, the president's vaccine mandate has caused truckers and other workers key to the movement of goods, already in short supply, to leave their jobs at the worst possible time.

Biden has not just crimped the number of people working; his administration has also intentionally raised prices by pursuing pro-labor policies that are also uniquely ill-timed.
