Joe Biden is a miserable failure as president across the board, but few examples are quite as vivid as his failure in Latin America where he is doing literally nothing as the place goes to hell in a handbasket. The neglect is so bad even Democrats are embarrassed. According to Politico: Biden’s diplomatic team has spent most of his first term trying to rebuild alliances in Europe and Asia stressed by former President Donald Trump’s brash nationalism. They have only recently started to turn their attention to Latin America, but lawmakers and corporate officials alike say those efforts are scant — and their patience is starting to wear thin.


Anybody notice that Colombia is now awash in cocaine and Mexico has become a military regime?

Biden could care less about Latin America. What he does care about is allowing as many as possible poor and uneducated Latin Americans to unlawfully get into the USA, who can then be granted amnesty and US citizenship allowing them to ultimately transform themselves into millions of diverse “New Americans” and of course future leftist and socialist Democrat supporters and voters.

Once upon a time, New York City's top urban planning strongman, Robert Moses, built highways and bridges across and into New York City, aiming to stop traffic congestion. And more of them. And more. Moses is why New York City has the Triborough Bridge, the Brooklyn-Battery Link, Interstate 278, the Cross Bronx Expressway, and many other passageways. He built them all, and then he built some more. And as every journalism student, having read Robert Caro's The Power Broker, would know, Moses was astonished. Instead of less traffic coming into Manhattan from the outer boroughs and beyond -- there was more. Manhattan became more traffic-congested than ever as a result,

Some eighty-one percent of Democrat voters are perfectly happy to keep supporting Joe Biden for reelection to the presidency. But there's one subcategory among them that is scaring the heck out of Democrat pollsters: Black men, whose support for the old dotard has cratered. Biden is down by thirty points among this normally loyal political group. A very significant number just don't want to vote for him. According to the Daily Caller, citing a Washington Post report: Black voters are significantly less enthused about a Biden reelection campaign than they were in 2020, with only 55% saying they’re likely to support him in 2024, according to an early May AP/NORC poll.
Fake News: Washington Post tries to do

President Trump has had a lot of ups and downs in his real estate career, which means his relations with banks and credit can be pretty dicey. The matter was made worse for him in the wake of the January 6 protests, where wokester banks outright cut him off. His Trump Organization financial operation however did find a bank that would loan to his organization, a relatively small bank in San Diego called Axos Bank. and that set the Washington Post scrambling to look for some seedy Biden-style corruption. They found nothing. They must have spent some time on this, however, because they ran a story, and had to satisfy themselves with innuendo

Are the Democrats the only ones with a "Dianne Feinstein" problem, that of entrenched leaders who are visibly shambling apart, yet impossible to remove from power? Sure looks like it, with the sudden seize or freeze up of Senate Minotiry Leader Mitch McConnell yesterday: Here is the tweeted video of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnelll, aged 83 suddenly going silent during a speech: (Snip for tweet) We've seen this sort of incapacity in Feinstein, a 90-year old Democrat whose infirmities should require her to retire from office, and in Democrat Sen.

When your whole life is about freeloading, and from only the best, what's the problem with bumming a ride on Air Force One? Which is what Prince Harry and his disastrous wife were caught trying to do. Seriously. Here is the story from the New York Post: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle tried to hitch a ride back to America on Air Force One after the Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral but were quickly rebuffed. Sources told the Daily Mail Wednesday that it was an immediate no from the White House, adding that the request was a “non-starter.”

Who needs enemies when you've got Gen. Mark Milley running the Pentagon? Here's the latest military fiasco on his watch, as reported by the Financial Times (second link here): Millions of US military emails were misrouted to Mali by a “typographical leak” that exposed highly sensitive information, including diplomatic documents, tax returns, passwords and travel details of senior officers. Despite repeated warnings over a decade, the steady stream of email traffic to the .ML domain, the country identifier for Mali, continues to be the result of people mistyping .MIL, the suffix for all US military email addresses.

MEXICO CITY -Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador on Monday urged Mexican-Americans not to vote for Texas Governor Greg Abbott in response to Texas putting a barrier of orange buoys in the Rio Grande to stop migrants crossing into the United States. Mexico's incoming foreign minister, Alicia Barcena, said last week that the barrier violates a water treaty and may intrude on Mexican territory. "We don't have to do much, just tell our compatriots not to vote for the governor of Texas or for lawmakers of the Republican Party who support these measures," Lopez Obrador said in a press conference when asked about the Texan initiative.

How's this for a fake controversy generated by wokester identity-politics fanatics? A top country music star named Luke Combs pulled in a number-one hit by singing the 1988 song of a black female folk singer named Tracy Chapman, and instead of celebrating that happy revival, the radical left is out complaining, True to form, the Washington Post has created a fake controversy by quoting a malcontent: To quite a few people, this is cause for yet another celebration in Combs's whirlwind journey as the genre's reigning megastar with 16 consecutive No. 1 hits. But it has also prompted a wave of complicated feelings among some listeners and in the Nashville music community.

A few days ago, Americans were treated to this "edifying: spectacle: (Snip for tweet) Joe Biden looks wretched -- sleepy-eyed, strident, bitter, sneering, mirthless, slurry-voiced, and ugly.

Pete Buttigieg has announced he's taking over the White House social media feed in order to tout Joe Biden's achievements. (Snip for Tweet) What could go wrong. To start with, the plan looks suspiciously close to being part of Biden's presidential campaign re-election strategy, given that Kamala Harris and Gavin Newsom are out touring the country to do the exact same thing. For Pete, that would violate the Hatch Act, which prohibits political campaigning while on the job. But let's put that aside. The front screen shot of the ad is so bad, what with that closeup of Pete with his mouth wide open it looks like a political enemy created it.

Bud Light, which reportedly saw a catastrophic drop in sales just prior to the Fourth of July weekend, still doesn't seem to get it. Here's their latest ad, featuring their customers in the act of grunting: [Snip for tweet] They are male, they are hetero, but they aren't exactly classy or uplifting as the cameras focus on a few pot bellies along with grunts away for the cameras. It would seem to go against basic marketing principles, as customers like to feel uplifted about their purchase of a product, which was why Budweiser's Clydesdale horse ads in the past have been so effective.

Fox News Chief Political Analyst Brit Hume called former President Donald Trump a failed president on Monday. Hume issued his condemnatory statement in response to a video from conservative commentator Charlie Kirk, who suggested that people oppose Trump due to his success as president. “If Trump was such a failed president, why are they doing everything they possibly can to prevent a second term of Trump?” said Kirk. “Oh, I don’t know. Maybe they don’t want a repeat of a failed presidency. Just guessing here,” responded Hume.

During an interview with NBC News on Monday, 2024 Republican presidential candidate Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis stated that the 2020 election was poorly run, but we had mass mail-in balloting because “Trump turned the government over to Fauci, they embraced lockdowns, they did the CARES Act, which funded mail-in ballots across the country. Donald Trump signed that bill that funded the mail ballots that all the Republicans have been so concerned about.” And that the censorship of the Hunter Biden laptop story “was Donald Trump’s FBI that was working with that.”

In 2015, David Burge (Iowahawk) posted a now-famous tweet describing leftism: “1. Identify a respected institution. 2. Kill it. 3. Gut it. 4. Wear its carcass as a skin suit, while demanding respect.” In that short tweet, he perfectly described what leftism has done to the Judeo-Christian religion. And that act of wearing a religion’s “carcass as a skin suit, while demanding respect” is the best caption possible for a video in which a female Presbyterian minister, draped in a Planned Parenthood stole, celebrates her abortion and abortions generally.

Ginormous toxic hammerhead worms - which can grow up to 15 inches - have invaded DC backyards as the slithering creatures shock residents and have scientists warning about getting too close. Americans are being advised to avoid touching the foot-long flatworms, which feast on slugs, snails and earthworms by paralyzing them with the same potent neurotoxin found in deadly puffer fish. Also known as spade-headed garden worms, the slippery specimens excrete a septic slime, which can be harmful to humans if ingested.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has urged House Republicans to avoid impeaching President Joe Biden. Speaking to the New York Times in an interview published Tuesday, McConnell said that he does not want to continue the impeachment cycle that Democrats started two years ago when they impeached former President Trump on dubious charges. “I said two years ago, when we had not one but two impeachments, that once we go down this path it incentivizes the other side to do the same thing,” McConnell said. “Impeachment ought to be rare,” he added. “This is not good for the country.”

President Joe Biden will soon ask Congress for a Ukraine aid package that could exceed $10 billion, a report released Tuesday found. Punchbowl News reported the Ukraine aid battle will resume when Congress returns from recess. The incoming request, which could be “north of $10 billion,” follows as Ukraine continues its slow-moving counteroffensive against Russia, and America and other NATO countries have pledged support for Ukraine. The Army’s acquisition chief told reporters on Monday that the Department of Defense was working on a funding package for lawmakers to consider. The package would be used to replenish American weapon stockpiles which have been depleted after providing munitions to Ukraine’s protracted conflict with Russia.

Former Vice President Mike Pence has attained the qualifications to attend the first primary debate for the 2024 GOP presidential nomination.

That number is one of the Republican National Committee's requirements to attend the debate on Aug 23 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The former vice president also reached the other needed qualifications, which include polling at least 1% nationally. He is the eighth candidate to qualify, and he's possibly the last.

Massachusetts Gov. Maura Healey on Tuesday declared a state of emergency in the liberal state over a surge of migrants that she says has left social services overwhelmed, calling for more funding and federal action. Healey, a Democrat, announced that a state of emergency exists "due to rapid and unabating increases in the number of families with children and pregnant people — many of them newly arriving migrants and refugees — living within the state but without the means to secure safe shelter in our communities." The state says there are nearly 5,600 families or more than 20,000 people in

The filing claims that “Had Tesla honestly advertised its electric vehicle ranges, consumers either would not have purchased

Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo, considered a rising star among Texas Democrats, will temporarily leave her post leading the state’s most populous county to receive treatment for clinical depression, she announced Monday. Hidalgo said she was diagnosed with the condition in July and checked into an out-of-state facility to undergo treatment late last month. She aims to return to work in early September. “From the beginning of my tenure as County Judge, I have stressed the importance of mental health services,” Hidalgo wrote in a letter Monday afternoon to Harris County residents. “Depression and other mental health illnesses are part of the human condition, and mental health illnesses
