President Joe Biden should stop invoking his late son Beau Biden as a way of deflecting criticism of his handling of the withdrawal from Afghanistan, a former speechwriter for George W. Bush wrote. ‘Mr. Biden is not a Gold Star father and should stop playing one on TV,’ William McGurn wrote last week in an op-ed for The Wall Street Journal.(Snip)Biden’s invoking of his late son to justify his decision to remove soldiers from Afghanistan was out of place because Beau Biden did not die in combat and was never deployed to the country, according to McGurn. 'Meantime, the president refuses to acknowledge any hint of failure,


Exceedingly rare: a former Bush associate speaks the truth.

I'm tired of hearing about his dead son. Let's hear more about his crackhead son who was thrown out of the military and slept with his dead brother's wife. He's the one who truly represents the Biden family values.

I sympathize with people who have lost sons or daughters, but Biden's incessant, maudlin, moping about Beau is unseemly. Beau died after being treated for brain cancer for two-years. The family surely was told at some point that he was terminal. It isn't like he suddenly died in a terrorist bombing or freak accident. I'm at the point when I doubt the sincerity of Biden's "suffering." Beau's death makes a nice prop Joe can use to gain sympathy.

It is likely that Joseph Biden Jr, as an attorney, served in the green zone in Baghdad. The green zone suffered zero losses or injuries during the Iraq war. Zero. (A family friend, a Lt. Col. MP, served two tours, both as a shift commander at the green zone. And he was proud of that record.) Now that Dementia Jo has lied to himself and connected Jr's cancer to his Iraq service, and even, last week, said a lot of returning GIs from Iraq died of brain cancer (not true, as far as I know) who knows what Dementia Jo will say next?

Major B. Biden who made major in under 4years, (the bare minimum time in service to be elevated to mere Captain, 10+Years to become a Major is 'normal', with a minimum of three years Time In Grade as a Captain 1st) after not even entering the military reserves until he was in his middle 30's, truly "remarkable" advancement) Was already the duly elected Att. General of Delaware when he voluntarily deployed as a JAG officer, drawing pay from both positions, while polishing his political resume and preparing himself for a senate run...and eventually the presidency. He flew back from that deployment for the Obama/Biden Biden's own inauguration he tearfully told the media "It should be Beau being sworn in". Inquiring minds are also curious as to how B. Biden got a Bronze Star for his 6mo Kosovo 'service'(posthumously) when he was there as a civilian employee of the UN and the war had already ended before he arrived..

Vice President Kamala Harris criticized new abortion restrictions in Texas Thursday as an “abortion bounty law empowering vigilantes” and said Congress needs to “codify” the 1973 Supreme Court ruling that legalized abortion.

The American Federation of Government Employees, which is part of the AFL-CIO and represents over 670,000 federal workers, said they encourage members to get vaccinated. However, they said COVID-19 vaccine requirements should be negotiated with the unions during collective bargaining, not mandated through an executive order. “Workers deserve a voice in their working conditions,” said the union’s national president Everett Kelly. “We expect to bargain over this change prior to implementation.” The National Treasury Employees Union, which represents 150,000 employees across 31 agencies,

Perhaps, at long last, the deadly reign of Anthony Fauci will come to an end. That’s because The Intercept, a hard-left publication, has revealed 900 pages of government documents definitively proving that Fauci used his position to fund gain-of-function research into bat viruses at the Wuhan Institute of Virology (“WIV”)—and then lied to Congress about it. Since February 2020, the wizened Fauci has been the face of the government’s response to the pandemic. In the ensuing 20 months, Fauci was frequently wrong, incredibly arrogant, and deeply dishonest. Because he was the anti-Trump, though, we were stuck with him.

Just three months into Joe Biden’s presidency, his polling numbers were already showing signs that the honeymoon was over. A Washington Post/ABC News poll taken at the time showed that despite incessant media fangirling, Biden’s approval rating sat at 52%, which was the third-lowest 100-day rating since the days of President Harry Truman. Things haven’t gotten any better since that time as Biden has taken hits for his handling of the economy, the Wuhan virus pandemic, the border crisis, and Afghanistan. In fact, a trifecta of polls released within a 24-hour time span of each other last week showed some of the worst numbers of his presidency but he still
