A former ethics chief in the Obama administration has accused President Joe Biden of thumbing his nose at government ethics with the prevalence of family ties among his administration's hires. 'I'm sorry, I know some folks don't like hearing any criticism of him. But this royally sucks. I'm disgusted,' tweeted Walter Shaub, who led the Office of Government Ethics from 2013 to 2017.'A lot of us worked hard to tee him up to restore ethics to government and believed the promises.

Obama did the same thing with a string of black hires. Every President does it to a certain extent.

The big difference is that Ivanka and Jared did it without being paid, just like DJT did as president. The scum Biden, and his crony hires are like vacuum cleaners, sucking up the cash and the perks.

Is this the ''smoking gun'' or just a money quote: 'A lot of us worked hard to tee him up to restore ethics to government and believed the promises.' ?? Can't you just see Sir Gaffe-a-Lot work for no pay? Ne neither.

That's the big surprise in the article - that the Obama administration had an ethics chief. We all know that Biden is as crooked as a cold-blooded snake and doesn't know the meaning of the word.

Biden promised in his very limited campaigning that this would never happen, criticizing the roles of Jared and Ivanka. He is so ignorant that he did not know they were not accepting a salary. Meanwhile I am pretty sure and family member had to promise “10% for the big guy”.

The head of the office of ethics for 0bama is complaining about the ethics of Xiden? Seriously? He’s either completely in denial about his own career or this is part of the effort to begin the process of getting rid of Xiden. Keep in mind that 0bama told Xiden that he really didn’t have to run for the office and also that we’re pretty sure that it was 0bama who chose Commie-la.

Walter Shaub must have a blind spot when it comes to Obama's Government Ethics. That said, Obama looked down right ethical next to Biden. It must have given Obama heartburn endorsing him.

Just another "front" in the war on amoral, leftist elitists that have taken control of government, education, big tech, and the media, and are thumbing their noses at the average American citizen. Since this war has multiple fronts - similar to World War II - it must be waged by the American people via a multi-action, concurrent strategy. Some examples: (1) urge that individual state legislatures pass legislation to formally call a constitutional convention Per Article V of the US Constitution (many red states have already voted to do so, and it only requires 38 states); (2) take back the house and senate in 2022 with solid conservative candidates who will stand up to leftists, democrats, big tech and the media - and be prepared to financially assist these candidates; (3) inform your congressmen and senators you've had enough, they are on notice, and will be held accountable for their actions; (4) red state governors need to band together to address issues the feds refuse to address such as border control (use the power of state and local law enforcement to arrest illegals, build/shore up border walls, and then sue the federal government for the costs because it isn't doing its constitutional job); (4) if Republicans reclaim the senate and house, initiate legislation to end the stranglehold of civil servants - starting by not allowing "double-dipping" by retirees from the military, etc. to jump immediately to the federal government (and I am a US military-supporting vet); (5) break up big tech and remove their Section 230 exemption from liability ; (6) get involved in local politics - school boards, city councils; county government - and run candidates who will stop the nonsense of issues like critical race theory and indoctrination of our children, defund the police, and eliminating our fossil fuel energy sources in favor of "green" energy. Many of these are tactics the left has used for decades, and we are now going to have to fight hard to catch up, or face up to the fact that we lost the war.

I’m with #3 on this issue, Trump taking on his daughter and son-in-law as his close advisers in the White House with no Government salary, is completely different then the Biden crew hiring their close relatives into positions in the Executive Federal Agencies and Senior Executive Service positions where they will receive top levels of pay from the Federal Government. One thing you will never hear from the leftist and socialist Democrats is that Trump himself never took one penny in federal salary during the entire four years that he was US President.

In American journalism, there are supposed to be some clear, nonnegotiable third-rails. One is zero tolerance for overtly racist language and comportment among our movers and shakers. Reporters, for example, for four years damned Donald Trump for his neutralizing summation that there were both “fine people” and extremists mingled among the hordes of protestors during their occasionally violent encounters in Charlottesville, Virginia. It mattered little to the media that Trump added qualifiers of “many” and “both” sides of the protests: We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence, on many sides . . .

Now that Joe Biden has officially made Juneteenth into another federal holiday the activist left isn’t going to take time off to savor their victory.

CNN’s Don Lemon wore his thoughts on his sleeve in Sunday’s Washington Post Magazine feature on him (published online last Tuesday). In more than one instance he vented to reporter Eric Easter about just how racist America and white people were, while at the same time unironically lamenting about how we didn’t show enough grace to other people. At one point he even suggested that America may not even see blacks as “fully human” at all.The headline for the interview clearly laid out where they wanted to take things with a quote from Lemon suggesting: “We’re living in two different realities as Black and White people.”

Disney has been accused of pricing out loyal customers by targeting affluent families with $800 hotel rooms and $100 sandwiches at its theme parks, despite having scaled back its 'magic' since the pandemic began. A family vacation to Disneyland - once the pinnacle of summertime for middle-class American families - will today set a family of four back more than $6,000. With the average annual income now standing at $5,725 a month, this means a visit to the so-called 'happiest place on earth' is increasingly out of reach to the average American family.

There are two obvious reasons for this failure. One, Kamala Harris was an affirmative action pick for the second spot on the Democratic ticket

An ammunition shortage that began during the coronavirus pandemic and the heated 2020 election reportedly continues to plague manufacturers as Americans remain committed to stockpiling as many guns and as much ammo as possible.“It’s widely known the ammunition shortages continue. There is still a lot of interest in firearms,” Smith & Wesson CEO Mark Smith said this week to Fox Business Network.The data backs his statement. A survey conducted by the market research firm Southwick Associates in April found that, out of 1,800 ammo customers surveyed, 75 percent had already experienced out-of-stock issues this year, down by only 5 percent from the record high recorded in 2020.

The business, U.S. Private Vaults, had been charged in a sealed indictment with conspiring to sell drugs and launder money. Its customers had not. So the FBI could seize the boxes themselves, Kim decided, but had to return what was inside to the owners.
