The White House abruptly cut the feed of President Biden's briefing on wildfires with federal and state officials. During Monday's visit to Boise, Idaho, Biden received a briefing about the ongoing wildfires that have plagued several states out west. While Biden spoke for much of the briefing, at one point he said he wanted to hear more from George Geissler of the National Association of State Foresters. "Can I ask you a question?" Biden asked. "Of course," Geissler responded. "One of the things that I've been working on with some others is —" Biden said before being cut off mid-sentence.

I have visions of psaki with a long hook (the kind they used in Vaudeville) wrapping it around biden's neck and yanking him off stage. The whole time she is whispering in his ear, "Don't worry sir, it's ice cream time, with sprinkles". I would like to be a fly on the wall when his "people" get together and talk about his advancing stage of dementia.

We need to find out who his handlers are and investigate them THOROUGHLY. This isn't funny, anymore. Considering the situation it is highly likely that unelected, and possibly not even appointed person are running the presidency. If the latter - frankly, they should be hunted down and executed.

November 29, 2020 "President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris announced an all-female communications team Sunday aimed at bringing "diverse perspectives" to the White House." "Jen Psaki, a top member of the transition team who served in the Obama-Biden administration, was chosen as White House press secretary. Kate Bedingfield, who was deputy Biden-Harris campaign manager, will be White House communications director."

Xiden's handlers? There's been a bit of talk about WestExec Advisors LLC, founded by T. Blinken and others after Trump kicked them out of the Whitehouse. They're in deep with everybody--corporations, governments, deep tech and media. They seem to be deliberately skirting the gray fringe of legality in their dealings; get a load of this from Wikipedia: "...The firm and its partners avoid becoming registered lobbyists or foreign agents so that they can (re)enter government service without delays..." Imagine what a legitimate investigative agency could dredge up from the bottom of that slough. Anyway, my money says they cooked up the scheme, hatched it and (sort of) control it. Consider who's responsible for this mess, and who should, but hasn't, and probably won't resign? Xiden's handlers.

Only democrats could produce such a thoroughly embarrassing bumbling fool and carry on as if nothing happens every time he gets in front of a camera. The mind boggling absurdity that comes out of the White House each day is a national disgrace. Serious people do not present mentally unfit people as their leader. This man is a pathetic excuse of a leader. He is a shell of a man who cannot find his way back into the White House even after he is instructed where to go. The people who are okay with this walking embarrassment are evil. In fact, there is something very wrong with a wife’s character who would allow this. I can’t begin to imagine what goes through these people’s minds as they witness this horror show. Anyone who has had a loved with with dementia or Alzheimer’s knows how heart wrenching it is to watch their mental decline. It is a heartless act of selfishness to continue this masquerade. Jill evidently has the kind of lust for power that allows this to continue. You have to really love the spotlight to be able to stand by and watch your husband humiliate himself on a daily basis. This only what they allow us to see. Can you imagine what he is like in an uncontrolled environment?

Perfectly stated as usual, #21. I have tried to imagine what it’s like inside the WH these days. I imagine that Joe spends most of his time locked in the family quarters when he’s not being programmed for his next public appearance. But as to Jill, for someone who wanted the spotlight so badly, she hasn’t been seen much in public recently. Apparently the feces on Joe is rubbing off on her.

Because this un-elected man and his evil regime was installed into the White House in a bloodless coup and are now wrecking the country, I have zero sympathy for his obvious dementia. Yes ... it is sad & pathetic ... but I'll save my tears & concerns and prayers for the real, everyday people this guy and his running-dog supporters and behind-the-curtain manipulators are truly hurting. The businesses that have been crushed by his policies and executive orders, those losing a fortune because of him & his mandates, the dead and maimed who were not just overseas but here as well, and on and on. I hope he goes full-blown crazy and starts talking to the curtains and soiling his pants in public and punching people out on camera. Hey Demo-rats .... you wanted him ... you got him.

I'm currently watching Sec of State Anthony Blinken testify on Capitol Hill over the Afghanistan fiasco. He appears to be an excellent fit for the Biden administration, given his propensity to avoid giving straight answers. So when a Republican Senator made the point that Americans don't really know who is in charge at the White House, and asked a smirking Blinken if he knows who has the authority to "cut" the feed on President Biden, as happened again yesterday, Blinken pretended to be unfamiliar with any such thing ever happening. To hear him tell it, he knows nothing of any such events yesterday, or any other day.

Somber ceremonies marking the 9/11 attacks are a hallowed annual tradition, but as the 20th anniversary arrives with the Taliban suddenly back in control of Afghanistan, America's enduring sense of loss is compounded by the realization that, in many ways, we're back where we started. Any “mission accomplished” moment President Joe Biden hoped to deliver by ending America’s longest war ahead of the historic date was irrevocably marred by the rapid collapse of the U.S.-backed government and its replacement by a regime of militant Guantanamo Bay alumni.

As Joe Biden entered office in January 2021, there still roared a left-wing revolution, a woke madness spreading through popular culture and Congress, much of which he indirectly has aided and abetted. It has redefined not just politics but the rules of the presidency. And the eventual casualty of these radical shifts in protocols and customs will be—Joe Biden. Take impeachment, which heretofore had been rare and has still never led to a Senate conviction. Prior to Trump, Andrew Johnson and Bill Clinton were the only presidents to have been impeached (Richard Nixon resigned to avoid it), and both were acquitted in the Senate.

A popular catch-phrase among pro-Trump patriots is: “Nothing can stop what is coming.” This is based on the theory that there are things quietly going on behind the scenes, that President Trump still has a hand in what is happening today. Perhaps he is laying a giant trap for Democrats and the deep state establishment. Or perhaps the military is in control under the theory of devolution. Or perhaps, this is all delusional wishful thinking.
