On Tuesday Joe Biden threatened US ally Saudi Arabia during his CNN interview. Biden told Jake Tapper Saudi Arabia will face “consequences” for its oil production cuts announced this past week. Less than 24 hours later on Wednesday night the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’s Foreign Ministry released a public statement on social media. The Kingdom confirmed that Joe Biden attempted to coerce them to cut oil prices until AFTER the election. In the Foreign Ministry’s statement, the kingdom confirms that Joe Biden pressured the Saudi royalty to delay cuts in output and lower oil costs for another month until after the midterm election.


this is my "surprised" face.

I am not one bit surprised. The Green Climate Extremists wanted Gas Prices to skyrocket so the average citizen would be forced to buy an EV. Biden's resultant low approval rating before the Midterm Elections scares him not just because his leftist programs will be ended but because he is petrified a Republican Congress with Impeach him and tie him to Hunter's Laptop. Unfortunately they would have to get rid of Pierre Delecto (who won't even support fellow Utah Senator Lee who is running for re-elction) and then there is Murkowski (who McConnell is sending $$ to help re-elect for some reason when her opponent is a much more reasonable Republican) and then, of course, Collins (Maine)! Ironically the filthy oil from countires like Venezuela is actually dirtier than US coal and our Oil is the cleanest in the World. Wonder who besides Hunter's International Business partners are black mailing Biden to make him so beholden to the Greenies ... Gates, Soros, Bloomberg, Black, Page, Brin, Bezos, Kerry, Gore ... Musk is at least reasonable. Fingers crossed. I'm tapped out donation wise for November!!!

So Joe, did you think they would keep your little ploy a secret? They see your desperation and why should they help you out of a mess you have created. Now you are tough talking again like the big man you think you are, about "consequences". Threatening them will get you nowhere and they may just reveal some more of your dirty secrets. Beware Joe your sky is falling..NOT A JOKE! You fool.

Biden Attacks the Very Legitimacy of SCOTUS 6 replies
Posted by ladydawgfan 10/15/2022 1:36:41 AM Post Reply
Democrats have constantly attacked Republicans because some raised questions about the 2020 election, even though the Democrats have questioned elections and challenged electors in the past. Democrats have termed this “election denialism” and termed it a “threat to democracy.” Yet the Democrats have also been attacking the Supreme Court. They’ve incited protesters against the Court. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi encouraged protesters to pressure the Court to change its upcoming decision in Dobbs v. Jackson, the case that ultimately overturned Roe v. Wade. One person tried to assassinate Justice Brett Kavanaugh over the abortion question. Now, Joe Biden himself tried to cast doubt on the legitimacy of the Supreme Court

After initial complaints about the hurricane response, and some pre-storm criticisms, the press has little to say as the recovery impressively takes place. There was a curious news item at CNN, regarding an announcement concerning the upcoming election in the storm-torn areas of southwest Florida. Due to infrastructure damage and other physical challenges in the aftermath of Hurricane Ian, contingencies will be put in place to facilitate the ability to vote for residents adversely affected. In the three counties most affected by the storm, early voting will be extended. Also, Sarasota, Charlotte, and especially Lee Counties will have broadened early voting sites,

Wisconsin Democratic Senate candidate Mandela Barnes was riding high in August. The state’s Lt. Governor had a 7-point lead in the respected Marquette Law School poll and Senator Ron Johnson — the most vulnerable Republican senator running in 2022 — couldn’t get any traction against the Democrat. But in September, quotes surfaced that suggested Barnes was in favor of defunding the police and granting lesser bail for most crimes. More recently, Barnes has refused to rule out abortion in the later stages of pregnancy. Those two issues have combined to allow Johnson to portray Barnes as just another Democratic extremist and not right for Wisconsin.

A new study suggests that measures to reduce the transmission of COVID-19 during the height of the pandemic such as mask mandates and lockdowns have hindered the development of babies. The study, posted in the Archives of Disease in Childhood, claims that compared to a historical cohort, babies born during lockdown have shown a deficit in social communication. It appears that the stringent precautions taken by state and federal governments across the globe led to babies of the pandemic cohort having “one definite and meaningful word (76.6% vs 89.3%), could point (83.8% vs 92.8%) or wave bye-bye (87.7% vs 94.4%) at 12-month assessment.”

Never let a crisis go to waste, Rahm Emanuel once advised. Add to that this new axiom: Never let your emergency powers expire. As incompetent as Joe Biden might otherwise be, he’s proven adept at following both. Again: The Biden administration extended the Covid-19 pandemic’s status as a public health emergency for another 90 days, preserving measures such as expanded Medicaid and higher payments to hospitals. The decision follows comments President Biden made in September describing the pandemic as over. Some Republican lawmakers said afterward that the administration should wind down its pandemic response and the emergency designation.
