out to President Joe Biden’s:

latest news at page 1:
    The brother of late Representative Jackie Walorski was graceful toward President Joe Biden after the Commander in Chief erroneously called out for her at a speech in Washington Wednesday.  Keith Walorski said that he was not angry at the president and added that he spoke with Biden after Walorski was killed in a car crash on August 3, 2022.  Walorski told the New York Post Biden is 'doing the best he can do with what he's got right now' and he feels sorry for the president, adding that it's 'par for the course' for the 79-year-old Biden.  He did acknowledge, however, that 'a nice way of putting it' is that Biden is forgetful, due to his age. Walorski added, 'I don't think anybody would look at the things that he's done and said and say that his mind is as sharp as it used to be.'  Walorski noted that Biden was 'very sincere' when he called the family after his sister was killed, noting that Biden himself has been through that process.  The brother of late Representative Jackie Walorski was graceful...
    Former President Donald Trump has revealed he asked FOX News host Sean Hannity go easier on his successor. The revelation came as Trump was concluding an exclusive two-part sit-down interview with Hannity at his Mar-a-Lago resort, in a segment that aired on Thursday. The FOX News host thanked the former president for his time, to which Trump asked whether he thought Joe Biden would provide him with that much time for an interview. 'Want my honest answer?' Hannity replied. 'I don't think he knows that today's Wednesday is my honest answer.' 'I hope he does, for the sake of this country, I hope he does,' Trump said. At that point, Hannity said he was 'very gracious,' adding: 'I should tell a story about how one time you requested I go easier on him. 'You did say that to me, you thought I was being too flippant.' Trump then recounted how he 'thought it was too tough, I thought you were very tough,' even as Hannity doubled down on his coverage of the president saying: 'I was telling the truth.' Former President Donald...
    Alex Wong/Getty Images Mitt Romney, the 2012 GOP presidential nominee and now Utah senator, reportedly offered some surprising advice to Joe Biden, who was one half of the ticket that kept him out of the White House, on November 6th, 2018, according to a new book out next week. Romney and Biden spoke on the phone after the Republican easily won his Utah Senate race and while Biden congratulated him, Romney reportedly urged the former vice president to run for president in 2020 in order to remove then President Donald Trump from power. “You have to run,” New York Magazine national correspondent Gabriel Debenedetti quotes Romney as telling Biden. The exchange is detailed in Debenedetti’s upcoming book, The Long Alliance: The Imperfect Union of Joe Biden and Barack Obama. The Guardian’s Martin Pengelly obtained an advanced copy of the book and highlighted the surprising exchange between former political rivals. Pengelly writes about the impact the exchange becoming public will likely have: Romney’s exhortation to a man then seen as a likely challenger to Donald Trump in 2020 will probably further...
    Former and potentially future Florida Governor Charlie Crist took his praise for President Joe Biden to eleven with a stunning 87-second litany that included repeated thanks to God almighty for Biden’s presidency. With Biden’s approval rating mired underwater for the past year or so, many Democrats have struggled with questions about whether they embrace the president, although conditions for Democrats have been improving. Then there’s Crist, whose victory Tuesday night puts him in a head-to-head race with current GOP Governor Ron DeSantis. On Wednesday morning’s edition of CNN’s New Day, co-anchor Kaitlan Collins concluded her interview with Crist by asking if he would welcome President Biden to Florida to campaign against DeSantis. Crist responded with an escalating cascade of superlatives that included an odd detour into the time Biden offered Crist his lunch, but Crist refused because he only eats one meal a day: KAITLAN COLLINS: You’re talking about the perks of Florida. Sure. I cover the White House normally. Will we be seeing you in Florida? Do you want President Biden to come and campaign with you? CHARLIE CRIST: Absolutely! This, and...
    (CNN)Pete Buttigieg wasn't quite feeling it. It was late and White House aides had given him the cryptic guidance during their prep call for his Sunday show appearances on July 24: "We're not taking any swings."That last weekend in July, the transportation secretary was -- like most Democrats -- still reeling from the latest death of a reconciliation bill tackling climate change that he and so many others had hoped for. The potential loss of the electric vehicles tax credits he had worked on most closely, and the bigger goals like carbon emissions cuts had Buttigieg feeling dejected, despondent. The circle of those in the know had been kept so tight that even Buttigieg, one of the Cabinet secretaries closest to President Joe Biden who was managing some of the policies involved -- and a top TV pitchman -- didn't know how much was on the cusp of changing. "There was a sense that things had stalled," acknowledged a top Biden adviser. "People felt that they weren't seeing what they thought they were going to see." Read MoreThe upside to...
    President Joe Biden delivered a triumphant speech Wednesday morning after testing negative twice for COVID-19, ending a period of isolation in which he was presented as working constantly to fulfill the duties of his office. The next step will be to get the 79-year-old Biden, who canceled travel to Pennsylvania and Florida after his diagnosis, back out on the road. DEMOCRATS SEE ONE CHANCE TO OUTPERFORM BIDEN'S DISMAL POLLING IN NOVEMBER The White House announced the president's positive case last Thursday, and less than a week later, he was back to working in nearly normal conditions as the Biden administration sought to project an image of strength and competence from the commander in chief. "My symptoms were mild, my recovery was quick, and I'm feeling great," he said. "The entire time I was in isolation, I was able to work. ... It's a real statement about where we are in the fight against COVID-19." President Joe Biden waves after speaking in the Rose Garden. Susan Walsh/AP Biden worked throughout his isolation period,...
    President Joe Biden commiserated with pro-choice Americans during his remarks Monday evening marking the Fourth of July, reminding the country that the U.S. has always been a 'work in progress.'  'In recent days there's been reason to think our country is moving backward, that freedom is being reduced,' the president said. 'That rights we assumed were protected are no longer.'  'I know it can be exhausting and unsettling,' Biden said , speaking to military families and standing alongside First Lady Jill Biden in the South Lawn. 'But tonight, I want you to know: We're going to get through all of this.' Biden pointed out that in the country's 245-year history 'the worst of our past has reached out and pulled us back on occasion,' noting that freedoms are 'under assault.'  Ten days ago the conservative-leaning Supreme Court rolled back federal abortion protections overruling the landmark 1973 decision Roe v. Wade.  Biden also seemingly touched on the Highland Park, Illinois shooting that occurred at a Fourth of July parade earlier in the day.  'You all heard about what happened today,' the president said.   'And...
    In last week’s issue of New York magazine, two photos of Sen. Dianne Feinstein are laid out side by side. In the first, from 1971, she is smiling broadly, hair bobbed, wearing pearls — the first female president of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors. She’s about 38 years old. On the facing page is Feinstein today, half a century later, in almost the same pose and pearls, but now her face is deeply lined, her shoulders hunched, her expression substantially less joyous. She looks irritated. The caption: “The oldest sitting U.S. senator.” It should go without saying, of course, that there’s no shame in getting old. Each of us, if all goes well, will someday get wrinkles and our hair will thin and, over time, our strength and vitality will decline. But Feinstein, who turned 89 last week, has kicked off a heated national debate by refusing to step down from her job even as people begin to clamor about her age and competence. And she is hardly alone among her peers in clinging to power as she ages. Famously, Ruth...
    President Joe Biden left the White House late Friday morning for an early weekend trip to the beach. The president hosted a climate summit at the White House with other world leaders and his climate change czar John Kerry earlier in the morning, then called it a day. Biden and first lady Jill Biden exited the White House at 10:59 a.m., making some comments to the press before they left for their home in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. The president appeared to be in denial about his upcoming meeting in Saudi Arabia despite vowing during his presidential campaign to treat the country as a “pariah” after the murder of Jamal Khashoggi. “I’m not going to meet with MBS [Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman]; I’m going to an international meeting and he’s going to be part of it,” Biden told reporters when asked about the upcoming meeting with the Saudi leaders in July. Biden is expected to discuss energy production in Saudi Arabia, as he continues urging the Saudis to produce more oil in order to help lower record-high gas prices in the...
    The White House is hoping President Joe Biden, with his reputation for verbal missteps and mistakes, can be his own best messenger. Biden has reiterated his desire to criss-cross the country and connect with the public, but multiple crises have derailed his plans. Now, five months before the midterm elections, he and the White House are floating travel again, optimistic they can turn the public opinion tide against them and congressional Democrats. Biden has "a very uphill climb" to improve his former President Donald Trump-low approval ratings, according to Republican strategist Douglas Heye. That task is further complicated by economic outlooks or at least gloomy consumer sentiment, a fractured media environment, and Biden's performance. For instance, Biden frequently interrupts his remarks with references to the fact he has been speaking for a long time. The tic tends to undermine his authority rather than render him overly relatable. "He's not a perfect messenger," Heye told the Washington Examiner. "But he is perhaps the person who is most capable of delivering those messages and getting the attention necessary. ... You're not going...
    President Joe Biden joked with Jimmy Kimmel that Republican rule-breakers should be in jail, slammed Trump and called inflation the 'bane of our existence' in his first TV interview in 118 days. 'I think you need to start yelling at people', Kimmel told Biden amid his dire approval ratings and reports of his frustration at staff for failing to get his message across and being left out of the loop in crises such as the baby formula shortage. The beleaguered president appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Wednesday night, with the host expressing frustration on Washington being unable to solve a bevy of issues like gun violence, abortion and climate change.    Kimmel began his interview asking Biden 'why haven't we done anything about this?' pointing to the recent string of mass shootings.  'This is not your father's Republican Party,' the president replied - a favorite phrase he's been using recently in front of political donors - and then blamed his political opposition for being too afraid to do anything about guns because they fear primary challenges. Kimmel pressed Biden on whether he could...
    President Joe Biden continues struggling to get his message to break through on social media, despite having over 70 staffers dedicated to digital content, according to a new report from CNN. CNN reporter Edward-Issac Dovere cites in his article statistics provided to him by Deputy Press Secretary Andrew Bates, who noted that Biden’s schedule included weekly time to create digital content from “the over 70 people on staff who help create it and manage his various accounts.” But the White House communications office continues struggling to get Biden’s message to the American people, the report notes. Digital White House staffers spend their days repeating Biden’s scripted remarks on his social media or editing footage of the president filmed behind the scenes and out of public scrutiny. Gone are the days of former President Donald Trump, who paid close attention to his social media profile together with his closest aide and digital adviser Dan Scavino. His online videos with celebrities like South Korean boy band BTS and stars like Selena Gomez continue performing well on social media, but his messaging attempts...
    President Joe Biden joked to Navy midship on Friday that he pursued football and politics over a military career as he warned them the next 10 years will be a 'decisive decade' in American history.  'Things are changing so rapidly that the next 10 years will be the decisive decade of this century. Because they're going to shape what the world looks like, and the values that will guide it - not just for the immediate future but for generations to come,' Biden said in his commencement address to the Naval Academy. Biden, in his remarks, tore into Russian President Vladimir Putin and Chinese President Xi Jingping. He also paid tribute to the late Senator John McCain, one of the academy's most famous graduates. He laid out for the class of 2022 the world they are going into as officers in the United States military. He slammed Putin for the 'brutal, brutal war in Ukraine.' Biden charged the Russian president with trying to wipe out Ukraine's culture.  'Not only is he trying to take over Ukraine, he's really trying to...
    Parents and politicians alike are slamming President Biden for his failure to address the US' ongoing baby formula shortage - with one distressed dad saying 'never did I think I would have a problem finding food for my baby in America.' The backlash against Biden comes as the formula shortage has reached crisis levels in recent weeks, with at least 12 states facing 40 percent or higher out of stock rates. As shelves across the country meant to carry formula remain largely barren, parents such as Russell Bleck, a husband and father in Lexington, Kentucky, have become desperate to get their hands on the all important product. The couple, who survived the notorious Las Vegas concert shooting in 2017 - the deadliest mass shooting by an individual in US history - moved to Kentucky later that year ahead of the birth of their daughter, Aurora, now 3, with plans to raise a family. Speaking to Fox News Digital Friday, Bleck - whose wife, Bre, gave birth to the pair's second child, Asher, six weeks ago - said he finds the shortage 'very stressful,' and pleaded for both the...
    Joe Biden was so sick after suffering an aneurysm three decades ago that a priest read him his last rites, a new biography about the First Lady reveals. The President was rushed to the hospital in 1988 for a bulging artery that supplied blood to the right side of the brain - and could have caused a stroke. Biden, who was 45 at the time, had ignored warning signs for weeks and was popping 10 Tylenol a day to cope with the headaches. His doctors thought his condition was so bad they asked for the priest to give sacrament to Biden, a devout Catholic, and a nurse told his wife Jill not to go into the room while it was administered. A furious Jill ignored the advice and burst in, screaming at the medics: 'Get out! Get out! My husband is not going to die!' The anecdote sheds new light on the episode which nearly claimed the life of Biden who at 79 is the oldest President in history. Joe Biden was rushed to the hospital in 1988 after suffering...
    A California mother was left horrified by a video of her preschooler daughter and her classmates chanting 'we wanted Biden out,' after they were 'indoctrinated' by their teacher during a President's Day lesson.  Christina McFadden, of Norco, said her daughter and her 5-and-4-year-old classmates were denied the chance to form their own beliefs and did not fully understand what was going on.  Instead, the outraged mother said a teacher at the private Turning Point Christian School, who was 'talked to' but will not be fired, indoctrinated the children.   'Everybody has a right to believe in what they want and my daughter wasn't given that opportunity,' McFadden told local news station KTLA.  'And especially at that age, I don't even think that she can comprehend to make an informed decision on who and what she should believe in.' The video, which was sent through an internal app for parents, showed at least eight children chanting 'Biden...we want him out,' after a female teacher asks 'Who is our President?/ What do we want to do with him?'  Christina McFadden, of Norco, said her her...
    President Joe Biden has added Poland to his Europe trip this week as Russian forces continue to escalate their nearly month-old invasion of neighboring Ukraine. Urgent talks with NATO and other allies are planned to feature on the diplomatic foray. Biden will first travel to Brussels and then to Poland to meet with leaders there, press secretary Jen Psaki said in a statement Sunday night. The flying visit was first announced last week, as Breitbart News reported, with staff promising then “the president is a big believer in face-to-face diplomacy so it’s an opportunity to do exactly that.” Press secretary Jen Psaki confirmed nothing has changed Biden’s diplomatic ambitions in the interim, announcing the president will head to Warsaw for a bilateral meeting with President Andrzej Duda scheduled for Saturday as he seeks to impose “severe and unprecedented costs on Russia for its invasion.” Joe Biden Plans Visit to Europe for ‘Face to Face Diplomacy’ About Ukraine and NATOhttps://t.co/j7N9Kd3eAT — Breitbart London (@BreitbartLondon) March 16, 2022 Biden will discuss how the U.S., along with its allies and partners, is responding to “the humanitarian...
    President Joe Biden pivoted from high gas prices and the Russian invasion of the Ukraine on Tuesday to a more personal issue - veterans' health care. Biden was in Fort Worth, Texas, to meet with veterans and their caregivers and push for more help for members of the military who face health problems after exposure to burn pits.  'We don't know enough yet about burn pits and the connection between these diseases that our veterans are suffering,' the president said but noted he was committed to pushing for more funding for the issue.  It's a personal issue for Biden, whose son Beau died of brain cancer in 2015. Biden has said he believes there could be a connection to the burn pits Beau was stationed near during his time in Iraq and his illiness. 'We don't know for sure if a burn pit was the cause of his brain cancer, or the diseases of so many of our troops,' Biden said in his speech. 'But I'm committed to finding out everything we can.' 'But we only have one truly sacred...
    White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain gave President Joe Biden grade-A marks for his fitness in a post-State of the Union interview Wednesday.   'He's definitely in better shape than I am, that's for sure. He's very fit, he works out almost every day in the morning before he comes down to the Oval Office,' Klain said in a virtual interview with the Economic Club of Washington. 'I think his fitness, his vigor, is beyond question.' Speaking to billionaire philanthropist David Rubenstein, Klain pointed to the 79-year-old Biden's performance at Tuesday night's State ofthe Union as evidence that being the country's oldest president isn't holding the Democrat back.  'And I think the American people saw for themselves last night the president stand and give an hourlong address that was filled with passion and power and wisdom and energy,' Klain said. 'They saw him hold the longest press conferences in the history of presidents,' he added, pointing to Biden's Q&A session in January.  Biden had one noticable slip-up during the 1 hour, 1 minute and 49 second-speech - accidentally referring to the Ukrainians...
    Kyle Rittenhouse wants an apology from President Joe Biden for linking him to white supremacy. Fresh off announcing a new initiative to challenge those the teenager believes have defamed him, Rittenhouse told Newsmax host Eric Bolling on Friday he has reached out to Biden several times, to no avail, and is considering another way to contact the commander in chief. "I tried reaching out to him five times to have an interview, but he was too cowardly to sit down and talk to me," Rittenhouse told Bolling. "So, we may be sending him a letter." KYLE RITTENHOUSE THANKS GOD FOR MAKING SURE 'JUSTICE WAS DONE' DURING TRIAL When asked by Bolling what the letter would say, Rittenhouse said that he wants Biden "to apologize." "What he said was wrong," Rittenhouse said. "I want him to sit down with me, and I want him to learn the facts about what happened." RITTENHOUSE: "The President of the United States called me a 'white supremacist.' I tried reaching out to him five times to have an interview,...
    President Joe Biden remains stubbornly opposed to lifting coronavirus restrictions, despite the way Europe is leading the way back to normal. A group of United States governors meeting with Biden at the White House on Monday said afterward they pleaded with the president to outline a path out of the pandemic, rather than continuously extending ongoing coronavirus restrictions. “We need to move away from the pandemic,” Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson told reporters at the White House Monday after members of the National Governors Association met with the president. “And we asked the President to help give us clear guidelines on how we can return to a greater state of normality.” Before the Q-and-A portion of the meeting, Biden indicated that the United States was not ready to loosen restrictions. “We got a way to go on that, in my view, but we’re moving,” Biden said, hinting that governors should not jump ahead of the federal government on the strategy to reopen. “I think it’s all about making sure we have the same standards we’re applying across the board,” he added....
    President Joe Biden met with American governors at the White House on Monday, but only spoke briefly about migration and the crisis on the southern border. The president acknowledged that border security was an issue, claiming he was “working a lot with neighboring countries” on the migrant crisis. But he stressed the most important thing he wanted to do is fix the foreign countries from which migrants were coming. “There’s a lot to do.” he said. “There’s a lot. I think one of the fundamental things we gotta do in addition to some of the changes we’ll make — we won’t get into them today — is that if we figure out why they’re leaving in the first place.” Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris, along with cabinet officials, met with governors from the National Governors Association. The president argued that migrants only seek to sell their belongings and pay smugglers to take them to the United States out of desperation, not because it would be “fun.” “There’s gangs we’re working on, there’s a whole lot of illegal movement, but...
    Russian President Vladimir Putin has agreed to hold talks with Germany, France and Ukraine as NATO fails to take action on the rising conflict in Easter Europe and President Joe Biden's announcement on Friday that he would deploy troops 'in the near term' without backing from NATO.   The blow to NATO and exclusion of America in negotiation talks on the Russian-Ukraine crisis came after Putin accused the U.S. and NATO of ignoring the Kremlin's 'fundamental concerns' over NATO's growth during a call with French President Emmanuel Macron on Friday.  During the call, Putin argued that the West had refused Russians demands of 'preventing NATO expansion, refusing to deploy strike weapons systems near Russian borders' and withdrawing allied forces to positions they held in 1997, prior to NATO's expansion into Eastern Europe, Politico reported.   Rather than meet with NATO, Putin has agreed to discuss the issue with the European-led Normandy Format, a grouping that includes France, Germany, Ukraine and Russia. Their meetings center on the cease-fire agreement that the countries brokered in eastern Ukraine in 2015, and it also offers a path to...
    The White House on Thursday denied President Joe Biden thinks the 2022 midterm election will be illegitimate - their second clean up from his press conference the previous day. But the messaging got mixed when a prominent black Democratic lawmaker said he was 'absolutely concerned' this year's election won't be legitimate.  Biden, in his nearly two-hour press conference on Wednesday, was asked if the 2022 election would be legitimate if Democrats' voting rights package didn't pass in the Senate. 'I’m not going to say it’s going to be legit,' he said in response. 'The increase and the prospect of being illegitimate is in direct proportion to us not being able to get these reforms passed.' Critics immediately lashed out, asking how Biden could question the legitimacy of the election after slamming Donald Trump for his false claim he won in the 2020 contest.  White House press secretary Jen Psaki took to Twitter Thursday morning to clarify. 'Lets be clear: @POTUS was not casting doubt on the legitimacy of the 2022 election. He was making the opposite point: In 2020, a record...
    President Joe Biden expressed his frustration at being trapped in the White House on Wednesday, unable to travel and speak directly to the American people. The president spoke with reporters for 112 minutes during a rare solo press conference at the White House. Biden was confronted by NBC News reporter Kristen Welker who said during a visit to South Carolina, black voters she spoke to had written off his efforts on voting rights as a “last-minute PR push” The president was disappointed to hear the news, lamenting he had been trapped in the White House during the first year of his presidency. “Part of the problem is, as well: I have not been out in the community nearly enough,” he said. “I’ve been here an awful lot.” He lamented that the coronavirus pandemic and Washington politics prevented him from interacting with the people. He said: I find myself in a situation where I don’t get a chance to look people in the eye, because of both COVID and things that are happening in Washington, to be able to go out...
    President Joe Biden shrugged off polls showing voters believed he was not mentally fit, during a press conference at the White House on Wednesday. One reporter asked Biden why only 40 percent of voters in a new Morning Consult survey believe Biden is mentally fit, 37 percent say he is in good health, and 43 percent believe he is stable. “I have no idea,” Biden replied. The president appeared aware of recent polling showing his approval ratings at record lows but expressed disbelief that his approval was low even among independents. “I don’t believe the polls,” he said shortly. Biden appeared to relish the length of his 112-minute press conference, telling reporters he was considering staying for as long as three hours. “I can still stand. It’s amazing,” he said wryly when reporters thanked him for taking their questions. “I can do pushups.” But his answers to questions from reporters grew longer and more meandering as the press conference continued. Biden indicated he would shift his communications strategy in the coming months, and get out of the White House to...
    JILL and Joe Biden have been slammed for going maskless during a Christmas concert at the White House this week just hours after the president told Americans to mask up indoors. The president and first lady were seen in footage captured by PBS sitting side by side without face coverings as they marveled at a live performance by opera star Andrea Bocelli on Tuesday night. 4Jill and Joe Biden were seen standing side by side during the event on Tuesday without FacemasksCredit: PBS 4The pair had been enjoying a performance by Andrea BocelliCredit: PBS The performance came as part of the White House's "Spirit of the Season" TV special, an event which has in of itself been the subject of ridicule as the Omicron variant of Covid-19 causes cases of the virus to soar nationwide. Hours earlier, President Biden urged Americans to follow the guidance of experts and wear a mask at all times when inside. “According to our doctors, even if you’re fully vaccinated, you should wear a mask when indoors in public settings,” he...
    President Biden and the congressional Democrats will conclude 2021 with a slew more issues than the beginning of the year, said Laura Ingraham. "They are not listening," she said Friday on "The Ingraham Angle." "Biden and the congressional Democrats end 2021 having failed on almost every front. Inflation is skyrocketing. Violence is on the rise. There is a needless omicron freakout and tens of thousands of illegals are flooding across the border and the Left's agenda is stalling out thankfully." "Americans are fed up with it." As of late, one of the Democrats' strongest voting bases — Hispanic Americans — have shifted toward the GOP by a sizable amount, she said. "Among young people, Biden has fallen 50 points since the beginning of the year," she added. On Thursday, Ingraham offered both a warning and advice to Biden and his party — to "reset" themselves in the new year and tack to the center, like other Democrats including former President Bill Clinton did to much success, she noted. Former President Barack Obama, President Joe Biden, and former President Bill...
    "The Five" reacted Monday to unflattering reports on Vice President Kamala Harris' management style, including that she blames her staff for her own lack of preparedness.  "The vice president is trying to fake her way through. And as you try to fake your way through the second most powerful job in the country, you're going to fall flat a lot," Jesse Watters said. "And so when she falls flat, she takes that out on her staff; and the staff doesn't like that because they expected more from the first female of color vice president. And so they're trying to pivot out of these positions as fast as possible, so they're not labeled ‘Kamala people.’" Democratic presidential candidate and former Vice President Joe Biden and U.S. Senator and Democratic candidate for Vice President Kamala Harris celebrate outside the Chase Center after Biden accepted the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination during the largely virtual 2020 Democratic National Convention, in Wilmington, Delaware, U.S., August 20, 2020.

    Donald Trump shared some harsh words for President Joe Biden in a Saturday night interview, claiming his Democratic rival will take the United States to 'a point where the country can’t come back.' He continued hammering the 79-year-old commander-in-chief on Sunday when he released a new ad claiming 'Joe Biden stole Christmas.' It comes as Biden grapples with a supply chain crisis and record inflation leading to empty shelves and high prices for frustrated Americans going into the holiday season. 'This country has tremendous potential, tremendous, but we’re giving it away, and there’ll be a point where the country can’t come back, and we can never allow that point to be reached,' Trump, 75, told Fox News. He was speaking to host Mark Levin to promote his new picture-heavy coffee table book Our Journey Together, filled with images from his four years in the White House. The $75 book goes on sale December 7.  Trump lashed out at Biden in an interview on Fox on Saturday night, pointing out that even former Obama officials criticized his handling of the economy...
    Last Saturday was a typically glorious autumn day in New York — refreshingly chilly under a bright, clear blue sky.  ‘We’re going for a brisk walk through Central Park,’ I informed a dear friend and native New Yorker.   ‘Take off your watches,’ she shot back, ‘tell Susan [my wife] not to wear any jewellery and don’t carry cash. There are muggers everywhere.’ Such warnings were commonplace when I first moved to New York in the late 1970s and the city was the crime capital of America. But over the years, under a series of strong mayors (above all Rudy Giuliani), New York became a pretty safe city by American standards. No longer. The Big Apple is on the slide once more. The pandemic has scarred the city much more than London. Signs of decay and dereliction are everywhere, even in the affluent parts. As we headed for the park through midtown Manhattan, row upon row of retail outlets were boarded up. The homeless lie in sleeping bags at street corners. Panhandlers (as Americans call beggars) are back, contributing to a...
    Joe Scarborough laughed out loud at former President Donald Trump’s so-called “Envoy Ambassador” Ric Grenell, who the Morning Joe co-host derided as “a guy I would not send to 7/11 to get a Slurpee.” “Former President Trump has been saying for months that he should be the actual president, as you know,” said Scarborough on Friday morning. “And now he’s taken his fantasy a step further.” “As a private citizen, Mr. Trump sent former Ambassador, of all people,” he continued, bursting out laughing, “Ric Grenell to the Kosovo-Serbia border in what he is calling an envoy ambassador. A guy I would not send to 7/11 to get a Slurpee.” Scarborough noted that “Grenell landed in Kosovo this week.” He continued, “But because Donald Trump is actually not the president because Joe Biden got well over 300 electoral votes, Grenell’s not there in any official government capacity.” Scarborough read a statement a White House official sent to RealClearPolitics: “Outside of his very active imagination, Donald Trump is no longer President and doesn’t have [any ‘envoy ambassadors’] representing the United States.” Scarborough...
    New York (CNN Business)"Saturday Night Live" offered audiences not one, not two, but three Joe Biden's on Saturday night.The NBC variety show opened Saturday's episode with President Biden, played by James Austin Johnson, bummed out that no one likes him as much as they used to."I don't understand. People used to like me. The press would call me 'Uncle Joe.' I miss the old me. Where the hell did that guy go?" Johnson's Biden asked.Then a ghostly fog filled the Oval Office and Jason Sudeikis, who is hosting this weekend's episode, appeared as Vice President Joe Biden -- a character he famously played when he was a cast member on the show."Hey-o!"

Eh, I'm just kiddin'."Read More!!!!!!!!!! pic.twitter.com/zWXzZ5yVkL— Saturday Night Live - SNL (@nbcsnl) October 24, 2021 He then told new Biden that he was "the Ghost of Biden Past," and explained that where he comes from, he's still VP, which is an easy gig.

                      by Victor Davis Hanson  Sheer chaos and anarchy on the border? Afghanistan—the most humiliating defeat in recent U.S. military history? A labor-starved supply chain in shambles and holiday shelves emptying out? The worst inflation in 30 years that seems soon ready to match Carter-era levels? Gas hitting $5 a gallon with winter heating fuels soaring? Free-for-all looting in the major cities without consequences? Joe Biden’s policies and Biden himself diving in the polls? Never in recent American history has any administration birthed such disasters in its first nine months. Yet most Americans are arguing not over the sheer chaos and disasters of the Biden Administration, but rather how could such sheer pre-civilizational calamity occur in modern America? Were these disasters a result of historic incompetency? Or mean-spirited nihilism? Or a deliberate effort to create the necessary turbulence to birth a new American revolution? Or a bit of all three? Start instead with the idea that what most Americans see as sheer ruin is not what the left-wing puppeteers, who are...
    President Joe Biden laughed off a suggestion that he invite senators Bernie Sanders and Joe Manchin to the White House to 'hash it out' as the pair feud over the Democrats' stalled $3.5 trillion infrastructure plan.  Biden, 78, spoke to reporters on the South Lawn on Friday when one asked the president if he thought the Senators would reconcile their difference.  The reporter asked: 'Mr. President, can Senator Bernie Sanders and Senator Joe Manchin ever reconcile their differences on your agenda?'  The president laughed, but did not provide an answer.  When she suggested he 'get them together and hash it out this weekend,' the president laughed again before sarcastically replying: 'No problem! I can do that. Not a problem.'   Last week, when Representative Ro Khanna suggested the President have a private conference call between the two, Biden said it would be like 'homicide.' Moderate Manchin and fellow Democratic Senator Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona have refused to rubber-stamp Biden's $3.5 trillion plan because of its exorbitant price tag.  Progressive Sanders went head-to-head with West Virginia senator Manchin by publishing an op-ed in...
    President Joe Biden had a good laugh and a snappy quip when a reporter suggested inviting Senators Joe Manchin and Bernie Sanders to the White House for a hashing-out session. The president spoke to reporters briefly after he arrived on the South Lawn Friday evening, and he was repeatedly asked about the state of the negotiations on his Build Back Better agenda. One reporter asked about the conflict between Sanders and Manchin, and proposed a solution out of an episode of The West Wing. Biden was amused: Q Mr. President, can Senator Bernie Sanders and Senator Joe Manchin ever reconcile their differences on your agenda? THE PRESIDENT: (Laughs.) Q Why not get them together and hash it out this weekend? THE PRESIDENT: No problem! I can do that. Not a problem. (Laughs.) Thank you. Q Do you think the talks will come to a conclusion next week? THE PRESIDENT: Well, I’m pushing hard to try to get it moving as quickly as I can. Q Is there a deadline? THE PRESIDENT: No. No. The conflict between Sanders and Manchin over...
    CHICAGO (CBS) — As President Joe Biden visited northwest suburban Elk Grove Village on Thursday, restaurant owners in Chicago wanted him to know they’re still struggling because of COVID-19. CBS 2’s Mugo Odigwe reports local restaurateurs said they need more federal grants, and fast. READ MORE: Second Spill Reported At U.S. Steel In Past Two Weeks, Nearby Beaches Closed AgainSeveral restaurant owners held a virtual press conference on Thursday to say help is needed now. Without it, they said thousands more restaurant will close, and even more people will be out of jobs. “My real objection is that this thing got funded, and 70 percent of the people weren’t able to get any funding,” said Joel Nickson, owner and chef at Wishbone. Nickson is talking about the Restaurant Revitalization Fund, a $29 billion federal program created to help restaurants survive the pandemic. Nickson said many restaurants, including his, didn’t see a dime of that money. “A lot of independents and smaller places got left out,” Nickson said. That fund has been depleted, even though the need is still very much...
    President Joe Biden floated the idea on Tuesday of using a one-time change to Senate rules to prevent a Republican filibuster in order to suspend the debt limit. It comes as Democrats scramble to find ways to avoid a historic debt default that could plunge the country into recession. After traveling to Michigan during the day to hawk his $1.2 trillion bipartisan infrastructure bill and an even bigger spending plan, he returned to Washington and an impending debt crisis. When asked whether he would consider the so-called nuclear option of a filibuster carve out, he said: 'I think that’s a real possibility.' The maneuver would allow Democrats to suspend the federal government's $28.4 trillion borrowing cap without Republican votes.  The federal government risks running out money by the middle of the month, according to several forecasts, if it cannot raise the debt limit and borrow more money. Failure risks undermining the pandemic recovery and triggering economic disaster. However, Republicans have made clear that they will not offer any support and are pressuring Democrats to go it alone.   President Biden told...
    Senator Joe Manchin on Tuesday signaled he is open to supporting President Joe Biden's budget package in the range of $1.9 trillion to $2.2 trillion, going above his previous limit of $1.5 trillion.  'I'm not ruling anything out, but the bottom line is I want to make sure that we're strategic and we do the right job and we don't basically add more to the concerns we have right now,' Manchin told reporters in the Capitol. Biden responded positively to Manchin's comments amid signs the two warring wings of the Democratic Party - moderates and liberals - are moving closer together on a deal that would fund expanded education, health and environmental programs. 'It sure seems like he’s moving. I hope that’s the case,' the president said during a stop in Michigan, where he was promoting his economic agenda.  Senator Joe Manchin signaled he is open to supporting President Joe Biden's budget package in the range of $1.9 trillion to $2.2 trillion Talks are continuing with Senators Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema, seen arriving at the Capitol on Tuesday Biden has...
    Former U.N. Amb. Nikki Haley slammed President Joe Biden for attending Wednesday night's Congressional Baseball Game.   'The fact that Joe Biden has time to go to the Congressional baseball game but not time to take questions on Afghanistan or see the humanitarian crisis at the border is a disgrace,' the ex-Trump official tweeted Wednesday night.  Biden made a surprise trip to the game to glad-hand lawmakers as members of his own party look poised to strike out his domestic agenda.  Former U.N. Amb.

    Piers Morgan laid into President Joe Biden in a Wednesday column, arguing that mixed messages from the White House were creating an untenable crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border. Morgan responded, as many did, to the viral image of an American Border Patrol agent on horseback attempting to drive back Haitian migrants on foot — but he argued that there was more to that image than met the eye. (RELATED: ‘He Knows What He’s Done’: Piers Morgan Accuses Biden Of ‘Shocking Moral Cowardice’ In Afghanistan) “The sight of US border agent horsemen charging into desperate Haitian migrants shames America – but how dare President Biden pass the buck for this chaos when it’s HIS shocking ‘Get out but come in!’ mixed messaging that’s causing it?” Morgan wrote. *NEW COLUMN* The sight of US border agent horsemen charging into desperate Haitian migrants shames America – but how dare President Biden pass the buck for this chaos when it’s HIS shocking ‘Get out but come in!’ mixed messaging that’s causing it?https://t.co/28vcbZPz0o pic.twitter.com/X7KPtRfqd7 — Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) September 22, 2021 In the column,...
    Boris Johnson will fly to America today to warn US President Joe Biden that time is running out to reach agreement on new green policies before an historic global summit on climate change in Glasgow in November. The Prime Minister will host a meeting on climate change at the United Nations tomorrow and address the UN General Assembly before making his first visit to the White House since President Biden took office for discussions on tackling Covid, the new US-UK-Australia submarine alliance and the security situation in Afghanistan. Mr Johnson's manoeuvres come less than six weeks before the COP26 climate meeting in Glasgow, which he hopes will cement his status as a global leader by securing agreement on limiting global warming to 1.5C by ending coal power, shifting to electric vehicles and halting deforestation.

    Top cabinet members failed to dissuade President Joe Biden from pulling all US troops out of Afghanistan, a new book claims.  In the new book Peril, veteran journalist Bob Woodward details how Secretary of State Anthony Blinken and Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin tried to get President Joe Biden to slow down the pullout from the 20-year war.  While Blinken and Austin believed Biden's plan would encourage the Taliban and the US-backed Afghan government to negotiate, the secretary of state's mind was changed after meeting with NATO allies in March.  In the new book Peril, Woodward details how Secretary of State Anthony Blinken and Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin tried to get President Joe Biden to slow down the pullout from the 20-year war According to The Telegraph, Woodward alleges Blinken told Biden that their allies said the United States should use the withdrawal to force political progress in the nation.       'Previously, [Blinken] had been foursquare with Biden for a full withdrawal,' Woodward writes. 'His new recommendation was to extend the mission with US troops for a while to see if it could...
    Former President Donald Trump boasted on Thursday that he'd knock Joe Biden out in 'seconds' as he prepared tp MC a boxing match this weekend.  Trump called into a press conference ahead of the match between Evander Holyfield and Vitor Belfort on Thursday. He will MC the match on Saturday at the Hard Rock LIVE at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel in Miami.  Trump, who at 75 is just three years younger than Biden, was asked who he would pick to box out of anyone in the world.  'If I had to box anybody in the world, and I'll take a pass on the professional boxers because that can be a very dangerous  subject, but if I had to box somebody probably my easiest fight would be Joe Biden. 'He'd go down very, very quickly. He once said "oh I'd like to take him behind the bar" and he'd be in big trouble if he did. I think Biden would go down within the first few seconds,' he said.  Scroll down for video  Former President Donald Trump, 75, says he'd knock Joe Biden, 78, out...
    The Afghan interpreter who helped rescue Joe Biden from a remote valley in 2008 said he feels betrayed by America and pleaded with the president on Thursday to not forget him and his family as they fear retribution from the Taliban. 'Do you feel betrayed?' Fox & Friend First co-host Jillian Mele asked the interpreter, who goes only by his first name Mohammed – for safety reasons. 'Yes, yes, they exit their forces from Afghanistan,' Mohammed said in a phone interview. 'They left me and my family and like me, the other people left behind. But it's very scary, man, as we are under great risk.' Mohammed, who is hiding from the Taliban with his wife and four children, said if the Taliban were to find him, they would kill him. According to a Tuesday report from The Wall Street Journal, Mohammed had been trying to get out of Afghanistan for years. When asked Thursday what message he has for Biden, Mohammed said: 'Hello, President, do not leave – do not forget me and my family.' 'At the moment in...
    Former George W. Bush campaign strategist Matthew Dowd said Monday on MSNBC’s “Deadline” that he thanked God that President Joe Biden completed the withdrawal from Afghanistan. Dowd said, “For me, today is, yes, but the sadness is moreover political decisions that have been made over the last 20 years that allowed us to be in this place where we lost thousands of men and women, and we lost trillions of dollars in the midst of this, and we’re having to leave. I have to say thank you, President Biden, in this for the first in four presidents to make the hard decisions. Before, it was the easy decisions. It was, honestly, the easy political decisions to not pull up and not make the decision and not be clear with the American public that this was failed from the start and was never going to be successful in this.” He continued, “It was a hard decision for President Biden to make, but it was the right decision. In the end, the implementation of the decision, he got out three times as many...
                        Several members of Georgia’s congressional delegation have commented on this week’s terror in Afghanistan, and many of them criticized U.S. President Joe Biden for what they described as a weak response. Twelve U.S. Marines died in explosions in Afghanistan, while the lives of thousands of Americans and allies within the country remained imperiled. The Georgia Star News contacted every member of Georgia’s congressional delegation Friday. Several, but not all, responded. U.S. Representative Rick Allen (R-GA-12), in an emailed statement, said Biden must make clear he will act and will not tolerate these attacks. “Several thousand American citizens and allies still remain in immediate danger as they await evacuation out of Afghanistan, and my office has been in communication with hundreds of folks and working with the State Department to get them to safety,” Allen said. “If you know someone currently stranded, please contact my Augusta office immediately.” U.S. Representative Austin Scott (R-GA-08), on Facebook, said what happened was no intelligence failure. “This was the end result of the refusal by President Biden and...
    On a card in his breast pocket, Joe Biden keeps a tally of members of the U.S. armed services who have died in Iraq and Afghanistan. Until Thursday, none had died on his watch. The deaths of at least 13 American servicemen and more than 150 others in a double suicide bomb and gun attack in Kabul has plunged Biden into the greatest crisis of his presidency. It has also helped reveal the essence of the man who said he would lead us out of the chaos of the Trump era.  A politician who came to power on a ticket of competence, empathy, foreign policy experience and simply not being Donald Trump has been found out.  And some of his former supporters now think that even Trump might have made a better fist of America's catastrophic departure from Afghanistan. Liberal Americans who, from the street parties of Chicago to the dinner parties of Manhattan, rejoiced in his election as the great saviour are waking up to the fact that his feet are most certainly made of clay. This in an...
    Joe Biden got in a tense exchange with 'interesting' Peter Doocy of Fox News as the president once again took on the Trump administration for negotiating a deal with the Taliban that he said boxed in his options.  Biden went off a pre-planned list of reporters he said he was 'instructed to call on' following his remarks on the situation in Afghanistan and the terror attack that resulted in the deaths of 13 service members Thursday. After working his way through a list, Biden opted to select 'the most interesting guy that I know in the press' as one of just six reporters he called on, Doocy, who also followed Biden on the campaign trail. 'There had not been a U.S. service member killed in combat since February of 2020,' Doocy told him. 'You set a deadline, you pulled troops out, you sent troops back in, and now 12 marines are dead,' he said, at a time when the Pentagon had confirmed a lower figure.  'You said the buck sops with you. Do you bear any responsibility for the...
    Rep. Mark Green (R-TN) on Thursday called for President Joe Biden to resign or for his “cabinet to step up and take him out.” Green made these remarks on Fox News in the aftermath of two explosions outside the airport in the Afghan capital of Kabul on Thursday. At least 12 U.S. service members were killed and at least three others were injured, according to Fox News. America Reports co-host Sandra Smith asked Green, who served in the U.S. Army in Afghanistan and Iraq, “Do you think that this president is showing any willingness to change strategy? Every time we hear from him, he seems to place blame on everyone but himself for what is happening there while sticking to that Aug. 31 deadline [for withdrawing all U.S. forces from Afghanistan].” “The best thing for America right now would be for Joe Biden to resign or for the Cabinet to step up and take him out,” said Green. “He’s either lying to the American people or he can’t comprehend what’s going on. His Secretaries of Defense, State come out and...
