Joe Biden Is A More Problematic Climate Hypocrite Than Kylie Jenner

Biden’s actions show he’s perfectly content to let working families suffer, while indulging in his own desire for luxury and comfort.

Afew weeks ago, socialite Kylie Jenner got “climate shamed” on social media after she published an Instagram post with a picture of herself and her sometime-partner Travis Scott, along with their private jets. Jenner’s caption to the post, “you wanna take mine or yours?” received torrents of criticism for its poor taste.

But for sheer chutzpah, people should look to Washington, not Hollywood, when it comes to climate hypocrisy. Over the last year, the middle class has gotten punched in the teeth when it comes to energy policy, with gasoline prices still nearly double the roughly $2.31-per-gallon mark from when President Trump left office, and home heating prices soaring too. The increases come in no small part because Democrats believe in leaving American energy buried in the ground to appease leftist activists outraged about the “climate crisis.”

Even as Democrats in Congress prepare a massive tax-and-spending binge full of “green energy” pork to address this “crisis,” their putative leader, Joe Biden, acts like a jet-setter when it comes to his own lifestyle. Biden’s actions demonstrate not just that he has no intention of practicing what he preaches, but that he’s perfectly content to let working families suffer, while indulging in his own desire for luxury and comfort.

The dam breaks, and key Dems run away from Biden '24

THE DAM BREAKS, AND KEY DEMS RUN AWAY FROM BIDEN '24. You've seen the polls showing that large majorities of Democratic voters want the party to pick a new nominee for president in 2024, bypassing incumbent President Joe Biden. Now we're seeing the living embodiment of those polls as some important Democratic lawmakers distance themselves from, or outright oppose, a reelection run by the nearly 80-year-old president.

It's not that senior Democrats are eager to disparage a president of their own party. They're not. Instead, they're being forced into it by the process of the 2022 campaign, in which they are trying to assure their own reelections. They're campaigning, doing interviews, and taking part in debates, and the question comes up.

Start with Reps. Dean Phillips (D-MN) and Rep. Angie Craig (D-MN). Last week, Phillips appeared on radio station WCCO, where host Chad Hartman asked him outright: "Do you want Joe Biden to run in 2024? Because the number of Democrats who don't is staggeringly high."

Biden used to keep Trump mentions to a minimum. Not anymore

In the early part of the Biden administration, there was an unwritten rule: Don't talk about the former guy. But with the midterms around the corner, Donald Trump seems to be back on the tip of President Biden's tongue.

Biden called him "the great MAGA King" in May. In early July he said Trump dismissed and ignored "the forgotten people he promised to help."

After the most recent Jan. 6 committee hearing, Biden went after Trump by name.

"The police were heroes that day," Biden said in a virtual appearance with a law enforcement group. "Donald Trump lacked the courage to act."

This Trump bump comes as the former president is endorsing candidates running in this year's midterm elections and as he loudly hints he'd like to be on the ballot again himself in 2024.

"The reemergence of the former guy is that he reemerges," said John Anzalone, president Biden's pollster. Trump is "the one that is becoming more visible and more contentious."

Not only is Trump out on the campaign trail, giving speeches and making attention-grabbing endorsements, but the House Select Committee on January 6th has directed significant attention back to the waning days of Trump's presidency.

Anzalone says calling out Trump is appropriately part of President Biden's midterm message.

"Joe Biden is the leader of the Democratic Party and Donald Trump is the leader of the Republican Party," Anzalone said, getting animated. "For the leader of the Democratic Party to tell Americans what he is for and what the leader of the Republican Party is against is absolutely normal and expected."

US President Biden signs new executive order on abortion rights

United States President Joe Biden has signed an executive order that lays the groundwork for Medicaid to help women seeking abortions to travel between states to obtain access to the procedure.

The details of the new order, signed on Wednesday, are still being worked out, and the administration faces a challenging legal landscape because it is illegal to use federal funding to pay for abortions unless the woman’s life is in danger or the pregnancy is the result of rape or incest.

However, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said the Department of Health and Human Services would invite states where abortion remains legal to apply for permission to use Medicaid funds to “provide reproductive healthcare to women who live in states where abortion is banned”.

Like Biden’s first order signed in July, it is meant to address the recent Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v Wade which opened the door for new restrictions on abortion at the state level.

The National Abortion Federation said Wednesday that it has seen more women asking for help travelling to get the procedure in the month after the decision. The organisation paid for 76 hotel rooms and booked 52 bus or plane trips, up from only a handful in the same time period last year.

Biden’s order also calls on healthcare providers to comply with federal non-discrimination laws and streamline the collection of key data and information on maternal health at the National Institutes of Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Biden described the court’s decision on abortion as a “healthcare crisis,” and he said he wants to make sure “every part of the federal government does its part at this critical moment where women’s health and lives are on line”.

The president’s actions come a day after Kansas voters rejected an effort to remove abortion protections from the state’s constitution. The vote was a resounding win for the abortion rights movement in the first statewide electoral test since the Supreme Court ruling.

“I don’t think the court has any notion for that matter or the Republican Party for that matter … how women are going to respond. They don’t have a clue about the power of American women,” Biden said. “Last night in Kansas they found out.”

Monkeypox: Biden promises accelerated virus response as more states declare emergencies

President Joe Biden has appointed two top federal officials to coordinate his administration’s response to monkeypox, the White House said on Tuesday, as more states declared emergencies to help boost vaccines and other resources to combat the virus.

The top officials from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) will coordinate the U.S. response across the federal government even as Biden’s administration has stopped short of declaring a national emergency.

The appointments come as the United States aims to bolster vaccination efforts to slow the spread of a monkeypox outbreak that has infected more than 5,800 Americans.

“Over the coming weeks… the administration will advance and accelerate the United States’ monkeypox response to mitigate the spread of the virus, protect individuals most at risk of contracting the virus, and care for those who have been afflicted with it,” the White House said in a statement.

California and Illinois on Monday announced a state of emergency over monkeypox, following New York’s declaration last week.

Robert Fenton, a FEMA regional administrator, will serve as the White House monkeypox coordinator and Demetre Daskalakis, CDC’s HIV prevention chief, will serve as deputy coordinator.

The pair will coordinate Biden’s response “including equitably increasing the availability of tests, vaccinations and treatments,” the White House said. The administration has estimated it may need nearly $7 billion to combat the outbreak, according to the Washington Post.

Paul Krugman is an imbecile.
New York Times' Paul Krugman mocked for claiming the economy is experiencing a 'Biden Boom'
Krugman's 'Biden boom' argument is 'the biggest' 'big lie', argued one columnist

New York Times columnist Paul Krugman doubled down on his claims that the economy is experiencing a "Biden boom" despite a record 40-year-high inflation and the United States entering a recession.

"Since I get lots of mockery for having talked about a "Biden boom", I thought I'd share a chart," Krugman tweeted.

Krugman neglected to mention that most of the jobs added during the Biden presidency are reflective of a reopening of the economy after the government imposed COVID-19 lock-downs. The lock-downs artificially pushed the United States into a recession, leaving millions unemployed and harming small businesses.

Biden signs executive order in attempt to help low-income women pay for abortions if they have to cross state lines

President Joe Biden on Wednesday signed an executive order that his administration says will help low-income people pay for abortion services if they have to travel out of state to obtain them.

The order, according to administration officials, paves the way for Medicaid to cover abortion-related costs for people who have traveled from states where their abortion is banned to states where it is not.

But Biden and other officials on Wednesday provided few details about how the change would work -- or a timeline for it to be implemented.

"Today, I'm signing the second executive order that responds to the health care crisis that has unfolded since the Supreme Court overturned Roe [v. Wade] and that women are facing all across America," he said at a White House event.

It remained unclear how this change to Medicaid coverage would avoid legal run-ins with the Hyde Amendment, a federal law that prohibits federal government dollars from being spent on abortion except in cases of rape, incest and to save the pregnant person's life.

Already, people covered by Medicaid have extremely limited abortion coverage in 34 states and the District of Columbia, while just 16 states use their own funds to aid abortion coverage under Medicaid.

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre told reporters on Wednesday the order "will not violate the Hyde Amendment," but she did not elaborate.

Biden's order directs the secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS) to pursue these changes, and Jean-Pierre deferred specific questions about how the change would work to that agency.

The Democrats’ Collective-Action Problem

On the menu today: One member of the Democratic National Committee wants to put the organization on the record as officially supporting Joe Biden’s running for another term in 2024; Warner Bros. makes an extraordinary decision about a nearly completed film; and a hearty thanks to all of you out there supporting my fiction writing.

Uncertainty Generates Anxiety, in Life and in 2024 Politics

On paper, everyone in politics should be focused on the upcoming midterms, not the presidential election two years after that. But the increasingly loud speculation and grumbles of discontent reflect a circumstance that Americans haven’t seen since the late 1960s: a first-term president who could conceivably not run for another term

More embarrassing Trump disasters fixed by the awesome Biden administration!

Way to go, President Biden! :130:
Biden administration task force reunites 400 migrant families separated under Trump

The Biden administration has reunited 400 children with their parents after they were separated as migrants crossing the southern border under the Trump administration, said Michelle Brané, the executive director of the Family Reunification Task Force.

More than 5,000 families were separated under Trump’s 2018 “zero tolerance” policy and a 2017 pilot program and advocates estimate over 1,000 remain separated. Because the Trump administration did not keep records of which children were separated and where they were sent, the task force and lawyers working on behalf of separated families have had a difficult time identifying families to offer them the chance of reunification.

In the majority of recently reunited cases, Brané said, the parents were deported while the children remained in the U.S. Now, parents are given the opportunity to come to the U.S. on paid travel, bring other members of their family who are dependent on them, and live and work in the U.S. legally for three years.

Lawyers for the families have advocated for legal permanent status on behalf of separated families, but so far the Biden administration has not agreed to that provision.

Brané said the reunification also includes mental health services for families both before and after reunification. She said many of the families have suffered from profound mental health issues after their separation and counseling is often needed before they reunify.

“You don’t want to just throw kids into an environment with a parent they may not have seen for five years,” Brané said.

President Joe Biden signed an executive order soon after he took office establishing a task force to find and reunite separated families, and the task force began reunifying families in May 2021. Previously, other families were reunited on their own or through the help of lawyers.

Lee Gelernt, a lawyer for the American Civil Liberties Union representing the separated families in a class action lawsuit, said, “We are thrilled for the hundreds of children who will finally be with their parents after all these years, but we are not even halfway through reuniting all the families that remain separated by the Trump administration.
