Biden’s federal overreach started with Obama
Under Obama, government abused power and targeted political opponents

The FBI recently raided former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort. Or, in other words: A federal agency mobilized against a political opponent of the sitting president. It’s deeply concerning. This is the way of Mao, Stalin, and Castro, not Washington, Adams, and Lincoln.

It’s not the only power grab in the works, either. Our government just expanded the IRS force with $46 billion in taxpayer money. They even want some of the new agents hired with these funds to be able and willing to use deadly force against the taxpayers who pay their salaries.

And let’s not forget that the Department of Homeland Security attempted to launch a censorship ministry called the Disinformation Governance Board before shuttering it due to public outrage.

Biden signs climate, tax and health bill into law

US President Joe Biden has signed a $700bn (£579bn) bill that aims to fight climate change and healthcare costs while raising taxes mainly on the rich.

The act includes measures to make good on decades of congressional promises to curb the price of prescription drugs.

The final version is more modest in scope than the $3.5tn package first envisaged by Democrats.

A flagship of Mr Biden's agenda, the bill could provide a boost ahead of the mid-term elections.

Voters casting their ballots in November will decide whether Mr Biden's Democrats retain control of Congress for two more years.

The president hailed the bill as he signed it on Tuesday as the "final piece" of his domestic agenda.

The package invests $375bn to fight climate change - the most significant federal investment in history in the issue.

An analysis by scientists with the Climate Action Tracker says the bill will reduce future global warming by "not a lot, but not insignificantly either".

It is projected to lower US emissions by up to 44% by 2030, compared with the current US trajectory, which would lower emissions by up to 35%, according to an analysis by the Rhodium Group, a consultancy.

The bill does not require companies to reduce their emissions, but includes tax incentives for firms to invest in renewable energy and rebates for people who buy electric cars or invest in energy-efficient home improvements.

In a major breakthrough, the package also allows the government to negotiate lower prices for some prescription medicines provided under its Medicare health insurance programme for those aged over 65.

That is expected to save hundreds of billions of dollars over the next decade, according to estimates from the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office.

On Tuesday, Mr Biden said the measure was a "historic moment", adding: "Every single Republican in Congress voted against this bill."

But Republican Senate leader Mitch McConnell said the legislation "means higher taxes, higher energy bills, and aggressive IRS [tax] audits".

Key economic claims about the legislation have been under scrutiny.

Despite being called the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA), the package will have zero measurable impact on inflation, according to an analysis by the Penn Wharton Budget Model, a group of economists and data scientists at University of Pennsylvania.

The bill sets a minimum 15% tax for corporations, and Democrats have pledged it will entail no tax hikes for those with incomes below $400,000 a year.

But an analysis of the legislation by the Congressional Budget Office said Americans earning less than $400,000 a year would end up paying an additional $20bn in taxes.

The bill includes about $46bn for the Internal Revenue Service to hire tens of thousands more tax agents.

Brett Reinford, 36, a dairy farmer from Pennsylvania, told the BBC he welcomed the climate funding and hoped it would help his family's cow farm reduce its methane emissions.

"If we can get some support from the government, it makes a lot of these projects make more sense economically," he said.

Biden slammed for signing Inflation Reduction Act: ‘Dark day for everyday Americans
Biden's $739 billion inflation bill was described as 'Orwellian'

President Joe Biden was blasted for his comments while signing the Inflation Reduction Act into law Tuesday.

The bill costs $739 billion and the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office and Penn Wharton Budget Model estimate it will not reduce inflation, despite its name.

Biden was criticized by conservatives on Twitter for his support for the legislation during the signing.

Conservative commentator Ian Miles Cheong, a refugee from China, tweeted, "Orwellian. This might be the single largest transfer of wealth from the middle class to corporate and state interests since the pandemic policies bankrupted numerous small businesses."

Canada eyes cash for critical minerals in Biden's big new climate bill

A historic climate bill just passed by the U.S. Congress could have implications in entrenching Canada's role in the shift toward clean transportation.

The legislation that passed last week established preferential tax treatment for electric vehicles assembled anywhere in North America.

That made-in-North-America approach generated some news headlines by bringing an amicable resolution to a months-long Canada-U.S. irritant.

Less noticed in the bill was a pot of money containing hundreds of millions of dollars to jump-start a new domestic industry in components for electric-vehicle batteries.

The ripple-effects could eventually be felt across the border, up into remote Canadian mining communities.

At issue is growing U.S. concern about becoming dependent on its great geopolitical rival, China, for the critical minerals powering future vehicles.

President Joe Biden invoked the U.S. Defense Production Act earlier this year allowing him to fund projects that would lessen dependence on U.S. rivals.

He's now getting the funds to do it: $500 million US set aside in this incoming law, after another $600 million was tucked into a recent Ukraine assistance bill, atop an older multibillion-dollar loans program.

Those funds are now at Biden's disposal to enact his stated plan to develop new suppliers for lithium, nickel, cobalt, graphite and manganese, as well as heat pumps.

Could some of that money create new battery-component projects in Canada? Canadian officials are hopeful it will.

They point to a document recently posted on the White House website, from a binational panel: It explicitly mentions Canada being included as a domestic source under the U.S. Defense Production Act and says that creates potential co-operation opportunities on critical minerals.

"There is an opportunity the way [the bill is] structured — to take advantage of some of that," Kirsten Hillman, Canada's ambassador to Washington, told CBC News in an interview.

"This will spur domestic production [in the U.S.]. It also includes Canada as a domestic source. So we look forward to shared opportunities."

Biden Called Cheney After Her Loss to Trump-Backed Challenger

President Joe Biden called Liz Cheney on Wednesday after the Wyoming congresswoman and vocal critic of former President Donald Trump was defeated in her state’s Republican primary.

Biden reached out to Cheney, who earned the ire of the former president when she voted to impeach him over his role in the January 6, 2021 insurrection and her subsequent work on the congressional committee investigating the matter, according to a person familiar with the conversation.

The White House declined to comment. A Cheney spokesman did not immediately respond to requests to comment on the call.

Following her 37-point loss Tuesday night to Trump-backed conservative lawyer Harriet Hageman, Cheney said she would do “whatever it takes” to block the former president’s path back to the White House.

“I believe that Donald Trump continues to pose a very grave threat — a risk to our republic — and I think defeating him is going to require a broad and united front of Republicans, Democrats and independents and that’s what I intend to be a part of,” Cheney told NBC News.

The 56-year-old is serving her third term in Wyoming’s sole US House seat, and is the daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney. She has said that she is considering launching a presidential campaign in the coming months to challenge Trump’s expected candidacy.

Only two of the 10 House Republicans who voted to impeach Trump following the attack on the Capitol will stand for re-election. Four, including Cheney, have been defeated in Republican primaries, while another four have announced their retirement.

Last month, Cheney attended a ceremony at the White House where Biden awarded former Senator Alan Simpson, another Wyoming Republican, with the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation’s highest civilian honor.

Biden approves largest oil, gas lease sale in US history, steamrolls eco review with inflation bill
The Inflation Reduction Act reinstates Lease Sale 257, an oil and gas sale spanning 80.8 million acres across the Gulf of Mexico

President Biden reinstated the largest oil and gas lease sale in U.S. history, essentially steamrolling the need for environmental review, by signing the Inflation Reduction Act into law on Tuesday.

While the Inflation Reduction Act includes several green energy provisions opposed by the fossil fuel industry, the bill also orders the Department of the Interior (DOI) to take a series of steps to boost fossil fuel production on federal lands and waters. The legislation specifically requires the DOI to reinstate Lease Sale 257, a massive offshore oil and gas sale spanning 80.8 million acres across the Gulf of Mexico, within 30 days of enactment.

"There should be no questions about the issuance of leases from Gulf of Mexico Lease Sale 257," National Ocean Industries Association President Erik Milito told FOX Business in a statement Tuesday. "The legislation is clear and mandatory."

"Congress has acted, the leases must be issued and the lawsuit must be dismissed," he continued.

Biden approval rating ticks up 3 points in one week: poll

President Biden’s approval rating ticked up 3 percentage points in the past week, according to a Politico-Morning Consult poll released on Wednesday, as Democrats scored a major legislative win with the passage of their climate, health care and tax reform package.

The poll showed that 42 percent of registered voters said they approve of the job Biden is doing as president. The same poll released last week showed Biden’s approval rating was at 39 percent.

At the same time, the number of registered voters who said they disapproved of his job performance dropped from 59 to 56 percent.

More people in the latest poll also said the country was on the right track — 30 percent, compared to 25 percent last week. Seventy percent of registered voters said it was on the wrong track, compared to 75 percent the previous week.

The latest poll is likely welcome news for Democrats less than three months ahead of November’s midterm elections. Presidential approval ratings are considered one indication of how the president’s party will perform in elections, though Biden’s numbers remain underwater and Democrats still face other headwinds.

The survey was conducted in the days after House Democrats passed a sweeping health care, tax reform and climate bill, with every member of the caucus voting in favor. Senate Democrats had passed the bill through reconciliation the previous week.

It was a key win for the president and his party after a year of trying to pass various versions of a larger climate and social spending bill and being stymied by Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) because passing the measure through reconciliation required the support of all 50 Democrats.

The surprise deal between Manchin and Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) was a slimmed down package, but it still contained some of Biden’s campaign promises and significant climate investments.

The Politico-Morning Consult poll was conducted between Aug. 12-14, among 2,005 registered voters. The margin of error is plus or minus 2 percentage points.

Breathing room for Biden: Big summer wins ease 2024 doubts

President Joe Biden and his allies hope big recent wins on climate, health care and more will at least temporarily tamp down questions among top Democrats about whether he will run for reelection.

That optimism may be short lived, at risk if and when former President Donald Trump announces another White House campaign. But for now, the “Will he or won’t he“ Washington parlor game appears to be on hold.

“I think the naysayers are pretty quiet right now,” said former Democratic Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe. “I think they’ve seen reality.”

In just the past several weeks, Biden has signed into law a climate and prescription-drug package that accomplishes many of his party’s long-held objectives; Congress has sent him bills that impose strict limits on guns and set out a plan to boost U.S. high-tech manufacturing. A drone strike killed al-Qaida leader Ayman al-Zawahri, average gasoline prices have fallen back below $4 per gallon and there are signs that inflation — while still white-hot — may finally be cooling.

All that has eased a debate over Biden’s future that was spreading. Fellow Democrats running for reelection were struggling to answer whether America’s oldest president should seek another term. But now they have a fresh agenda they can campaign on heading into the November midterms.

The president has increased his Democratic fundraising efforts, and next week in Maryland he’s holding his first rally for the party of the fall campaign season. He also plans to travel aggressively to boost candidates.

As a former senator, Biden knows some lawmakers may need to create distance from him to best win their races — but also that others could benefit from joint appearances. Aides say Biden may prove most useful amplifying Democrat-championed issues that are broadly popular, like lowering prescription drug costs and protecting abortion rights.

Cedric Richmond, one of Biden’s closest White House advisers before leaving for a senior Democratic National Committee job, said he wasn’t sure the spate of positive news would put an end to 2024 questions, “but it should.”

For “tried and true Democrats, the answer was a simple, ‘Yes, he should run. Yes he’ll be our nominee. Yes he’ll win.’”

But comments like that don’t make the news, said Richmond, a former Louisiana congressman. “So the only story was when somebody waffles or blows the question.”

The Biden Administration’s Quiet Failure on Monkeypox

In the last few days, Katherine Eban of Vanity Fair, as well as authors at the Washington Post, Axios, and the Wall Street Journal have all published in-depth portraits of the Biden administration and federal health agencies’ response to the monkeypox outbreak, each telling the same bleak story of a sluggish reaction, key missteps, confusion, and miscommunication.

Eban:

As cases of monkeypox ticked upward around the country, spreading primarily via skin-to-skin contact among men who have sex with men, six long weeks passed without significant action to deploy vaccines widely. Vulnerable Americans found themselves hunting for elusive shots and scrambling to add their names to digital sign-up sheets that filled up within minutes of being posted.

Said a former federal health official who worked on the US smallpox response plan, “I can’t see where any part of it was activated.”

. . . to critics, the six-week delay in inspecting the Danish plant is just one in a cascade of unforced errors by the federal government that has allowed the US monkeypox outbreak to spiral out of control.

Biden 'rejects' defunding the FBI amid calls from some Republicans

The White House is strongly condemning calls from some members of the Republican Party, including some elected lawmakers, to "defund the FBI" in the wake of last week's search of former President Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate.
The pushback marks the White House's most aggressive response to the FBI's search to date and comes as other Republicans, including former Vice President Mike Pence, are sounding alarms on this message amid heightened threats to law enforcement.
"Just like President Biden rejects defunding the police, he rejects defunding other law enforcement, including the FBI," White House deputy press secretary Andrew Bates said in a statement exclusively to CNN Wednesday.

"The President has called for boosting police funding through the COPS program and hiring 100,000 additional officers. He also included over $10.8 billion for the FBI in his most recent budget. The men and women who bravely serve in law enforcement to keep all of us safe deserve the resources and support that they need to do their jobs - not seeing their budgets slashed," he said.

White House chief of staff Ron Klain blasted the calls to defund the FBI as "a reckless and irresponsible idea," in an interview on CNN's "Don Lemon Tonight" on Wednesday.

The statements come as GOP calls to defund the FBI ramped up in the past week, signaling Trump's grip on his party. Reps. Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia, Lauren Boebert of Colorado, and Paul Gosar of Arizona have each posted the sentiment on their social media accounts, and Greene is selling $30 hats and T-shirts with the slogan.

The senile idiot won't build a wall to stop millions of illegals from streaming over the US border, but hey, let's build a taxpayer fence around the old beach house. What pure scum.
Biden building $490,000 taxpayer-funded security fence around beach house

President Joe Biden is building a $490,000 taxpayer-funded security fence around his Delaware beach house.

The Department of Homeland Security awarded a company $456,548 to install the fence in September of last year, according to USAspending.gov. Since the original payment, costs have crept up to $490,324.

"Due to the need to maintain operational security, the U.S. Secret Service does not comment on the means, methods or resources used to conduct our protective operations," the Secret Service told Fox News when reached for comment regarding the construction.

BIDEN ADMINISTRATION TO FINISH PORTION OF TRUMP'S BORDER WALL FOLLOWING PRESSURE FROM DEMOCRAT

According to USAspending.gov, there have been two additional payments on top of the original $456,548 that led to the current total. A payment of $6,844 was made on Nov. 30, for "SUPPLEMENTAL AGREEMENT FOR WORK WITHIN SCOPE," specifically the installation of three "6X6 GRAVEL PADS AND CRANE SERVICES." The latest payment was made on June 8, to the total of $26,933, for "ADDITIONAL WORK."

The anticipated end date for the construction is given as June 6, 2023.

Biden is expected to head back to the $2.7 million Delaware beach house on Saturday, Fox News reported.
