The White House invoked the personal tragedies experienced by President Joe Biden when asked about his response to a drone strike in Afghanistan that killed 10 civilians and declined to say whether someone in the line of command should be held accountable for the errant attack. “As a human being, as a president, as somebody who has overseen loss in a variety of scenarios, both as a leader and personally, his reaction is, it is a tragedy,” press secretary Jen Psaki told reporters on Monday. On Friday, the Defense Department confirmed the strike killed 10 civilians, including seven children and


Personal tragedies are no excuse for terrible judgment and a lack of competence. Make them stop.

Cancer is horrible. That Biden’s son died of cancer is horrible. That Biden has had other tragedies is horrible. But I’m the case of the family killed in the drone strike, Biden and his administration are the cancer; they caused the tragedy. If we could hold cancer accountable, we would. We cannot sue it; we cannot lock it up. But we can hold accountable people and organizations that cause harm and death. This White House is disgusting. They really don’t care about anyone but themselves.

Joe "Dementia" Biden October, 2020 "Joe Biden told Oprah Winfrey that his son Hunter 'is the smartest guy I know' during a Zoom event." Part of the love-fest: "Biden praises his son to Oprah as she refuses to ask him one single question about laptop scandal and his involvement in China business during campaign trail love-in." Jen "Psycho" Psaki knows that the MSM pukes adore her.

All of us come into contact with people who are struggling with some difficult or even tragic circumstances in their lives of which we are unaware. That is because they don’t go around in widow’s weeds or dabbing at their eyes with handkerchieves while they blubber about their sadness and they certainly don’t use dead loved ones as props or as excuses for their own failings. The constant references to Biden’s dead family members is becoming like John Kerry who couldn’t shut up about being in Viet Nam. If Joe’s goal has been to get revenge at God by causing others to know his pain he’s surpassed it.

Dementia Joe appears to be sorely incapacitated, strongly inclined to spiteful and wildly sociopathic behavior, and incapable of following the plot of anything more complex than a Sunday comic strip, but... there he is. Realistically, attempts to remove him run all of the risks and consequences we are aware of, based on the specifics and penalties of the Law, the loyalties of the media, and the sympathies of a good portion of the public (49% think he's competent??). It was clear almost immediately that he was installed as a semi-functional, frequently near comatose, crash test dummy to give the Progressives a semblance of credibility to the public, and a cover of authority if it came to it, for the plots and damage they have been trying to create for decades. Do they care if we are inclined to punch away at him? Knock yourself out. These evil people and their leaders abandoned faith in America long ago, and sacrifices (of others) are their stock in trade for the Progressive/Marxist cause. He's a human rope-a-dope, untouchable and clueless, a pitiable picture of confusion and old age. So, it is far too easy to blast away at Joe, where he is shielded from reality by the media, his handlers and his condition. If the opportunity were to come in some secret, quiet moment of insight, where perhaps some reasoning, responsible patriots could deliver cold sober truth to his befuddled mind about what is happening under his watch - a Grand Intervention to save the Nation, if you will - maybe... but, even at his best, he was famously never the brightest bulb on the tree. Worse, his mental condition now seems to be such that criticism, frustration, and pushback only makes him angry and more irrational. No, but his staff, spokes-persons, Secretaries, handlers, and supporters - they do not necessarily have the sympathies and immunities he enjoys as the Chief Executive. A frontal assault on Joe lets them carry on, scurrying about like rats behind the deflections and mis-directions. Those are the ones doing the deeds and pulling the strings, writing his Orders and presenting "his" words to the public, creating the climate and facts of mayhem and treason. Whether through aggressive stupidity or evil intent, these are not people worthy of our regard and respect. They are the ones that need to be isolated, "frozen", and personalized, pulled out from behind the curtain and spotlighted, and hounded, "othered" and cancelled. They are like the tormentors, the demons of medieval art and mythology, frolicking in settings of misery, loss and destruction of that which we should be protecting with our hearts and souls. Pick your targets carefully, because although they are vulnerable, they have teeth. But at this point, I believe they are desperately hoping that, as Dementia Joe fades and flounders in the eyes of the American public and of the world, you will (to paraphrase) "pay no attention to the clowns behind the curtain".

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and three other House Democrats from New York called on Mayor de Blasio and Gov. Hochul Tuesday to release all inmates held on Rikers Island, citing a long-running pattern of “human right violations” at the jail. Ocasio-Cortez made the extraordinary demand in a letter to de Blasio and Hochul issued jointly with Reps. Jamaal Bowman, Nydia Velazquez and Jerrold Nadler, who chairs the powerful House Judiciary Committee. In addition to freeing the roughly 6,000 inmates on the island, the four lawmakers wrote that the jail itself should be “immediately” shuttered and federal funding for its operations seized.

Former U.S. Rep. Beto O’Rourke, a Democrat, is reportedly preparing a bid to challenge Republican Gov. Greg Abbott in the Texas gubernatorial race next November.

More than 500 current and former female athletes have urged the Supreme Court to reject a Mississippi law that would ban abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy. The Biden administration has also backed Jackson Women's Health Organization, the only abortion clinic in Mississippi, in its fight over the state's attempted ban. The legislation is at odds with the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade decision which granted women's rights to access abortion with limited government interference. On December 1, the Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in the case against the ban, titled Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization.
