March 25 2021 - that was the date I (and the world) saw about the most embarrassing press conference you could imagine. Hopefully we won’t have to sit through another one for another 65 days. If Joe’s puppet masters have any sense they won’t - the optics were awful. Cheat sheets ID photos Seating maps Friendly pre-selected journalists Friendly pre-selected questions Border crisis denial Nothing about jobs Fake threats on China. Played race card again. More division and hate. No detail on anything. Just vague Bidenisms. And when it all hits the fan blame Trump. Says a lot about Jill Biden and the Biden family that they allow Joe to be used as a pawn and to continue to humiliate not only himself but America too. It borders on elder abuse. The man slips in and out of cognitive consciousness in mid-sentence. That whole stage managed circus looked like a cry for help! And the funniest part was Joe stating he’s going to run again in 2024. We all know that’s BS but Joe doesn’t. I bet that was news to Kamala - that would have given her heart palpitations. Soon the only thing Biden will be running will be bingo night at Shady Pines Retirement Home. This would all be funny if it wasn’t all so real. I couldn’t believe what I was seeing. It felt like some kind of alternate universe. And the woke partisan corrupt mainstream media all ignored the elephant in the room and genuflected and kissed the ring like nothing was amiss. Folks, is this what democracy in America has come to? After 65 days the White House serves up a CNN town hall puff piece to the American people. A cardboard cut-out would have been more honest and transparent and lucid than Joe was. Donald Trump didn’t hide anything from you, he said what he was going to do and did it. At least Joe spared us all another Corn Pop tale. Thank God for small mercies!

The foxes and wolves -- Kim, Putin and Xi, not to mention the Mullahs -- are salivating in anticipation of the next Biden fumble, and if Kamala 'steps up,' Heaven help us! ~ gw

America and western democracies are doomed. The left control academia, Hollywood, mainstream media, Silicon Valley, and increasingly the boardrooms of corporate America. I despair for our children.

USA leadership is lacking. Constitutional Republic is in dire jeopardy. Personal interests are rampant. World oppressors couldn't be happier. Founders, invoking God, left a priceless legacy...that legacy (and treasured living document) is being assailed by tyrannical (intentional) buffoons. Watch and weep...

If the media did their job these people would be exposed for their lies and hypocrisy and their radical socialist extremism but sadly 90% of the media are complicit. The people we used to mock and dismiss 30 - 40 years ago are now running the world. They’re teaching our kids, they’re hiring our kids, and they’re brainwashing our kids. Woke Stalinist censorship has usurped freedom of speech and opposing views of the current zeitgeist are cancelled. These people hate America but obviously don’t know what the rest of the world is like. America and the free world are under threat from within.

Does anyone really think after that “Weekend at Biden’s” press conference that Beijing or Iran or Putin or the drug cartels in Mexico at the border would be shaking in their boots?

I loved how in his speech, he said he missed Trump. "My Predecessor, God, I miss him." BJ

I think most sane Americans miss Trump. The country needs Trump. The media myth that Biden is not an addled old fool but a quirky grandfather figure has been totally busted. The sad thing for America is that the world was watching that clueless press conference. Cheers BJ.
