  1. The Divider in Chief.

    He’s never been as advertised.

    He’s a senile old fool seeking to “other” half the country. He’s disgusting.

  3. “Biden Primetime Address to Attack ‘MAGA Republicans’ In Escalating Democrat Campaign Of Incitement

    Deliberate Democrat strategy: “This is an extreme threat to our democracy, to our freedom, to our rights,” Karine Jean-Pierre said in a preview of the speech.”

    https://legalinsurrection.com/2022/09/biden-primetime-address-to-attack-maga-republicans-in-escalating-democrat-campaign-of-incitement/

    “Once Joe Biden won the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination, he spent a considerable amount of time portraying himself as a uniter who would heal the nation’s political wounds after what he called, in so many words, four years of divisiveness from then-President Donald Trump.

    Indeed, in a speech one of the most bitterly divisive men in American political history gave in June 2020 as the George Floyd riots were underway, Biden promised the American people that he would bridge the partisan divide and work to represent all people, not just the ones who voted for him:

    The country is crying out for leadership. Leadership that can unite us. Leadership that can bring us together. Leadership that can recognize the pain and deep grief of communities that have had a knee on their neck for too long.

    […]

    For that’s what the presidency is: a duty of care — to all of us, not just our voters, not just our donors, but all of us.

    […]

    But I promise you this. I won’t traffic in fear and division. I won’t fan the flames of hate. I will seek to heal the racial wounds that have long plagued this country — not use them for political gain. I’ll do my job and take responsibility. I won’t blame others. I’ll never forget that the job isn’t about me.

    Biden uttered the word “unity” nine times in his inaugural address.

    Fast forward to this point in Joe Biden’s presidency. Even the mainstream media – including some of the same ones who pushed Biden’s “unity” message at the time – have noticed that Biden has not held true to that promise, especially in light of Biden’s recent declaration that “MAGA Republicans” are “semi-fascists”:”

    “Biden turning into an attack dog on over 70 million people in advance of the 2022 midterms has caused a flurry of questions to be asked of press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre, who has echoed Biden’s comments about MAGA Republicans being “extremists”:

    But, you know, the President thinks that there is an extremist threat to our democracy. The President has been clear as he can be on that particular piece. When we talk about our democracy, when we talk about our freedoms, the way that he sees it is the MAGA Republicans are the most energized part of the Republican Party. That extreme — this is an extreme threat to our democracy, to our freedom, to our rights.

    They just don’t respect the rule of law. You’ve heard that from the President. And, you know, they are pursuing an agenda that takes away people’s rights, so — which is what the President said last week on Thursday. You all heard him. This is what the President said yesterday. And that’s what he’s going to continue to say.”

  4. As The Senile One continues to project, remember who it is acting like a true fascist.

    “Biden Admin Colluded With Social Media Platforms to Censor and Suppress Content

    “The discovery provided so far demonstrates that this Censorship Enterprise is extremely broad, including officials in the White House, HHS, DHS, CISA, the CDC, NIAID, and the Office of the Surgeon General.””

    https://legalinsurrection.com/2022/09/biden-admin-colluded-with-social-media-platforms-to-censor-and-suppress-content/

    “Big Brother is watching you.

    Missouri and Louisiana alleged that the Biden administration and Big Tech colluded to censor and suppress “misinformation.”

    Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt dropped a bunch of emails proving the “cozy relationship” between Big Tech and numerous departments within the Biden administration.

    “Missouri and Louisiana filed a landmark lawsuit back in May that seeks to expose how top Biden Administration officials allegedly colluded with social media companies to censor freedom of speech on a number of topics, including COVID-19. We won in court in July, and the Court required the Biden Administration to turn over communications between federal officials and social media companies,” Schmitt wrote. “We have already received a number of documents that clearly prove that the federal government has an incestuous relationship with social media companies and clearly coordinate to censor freedom of speech, but we’re not done. The Department of Justice is cowering behind executive privilege and has refused to turn over communications between the highest-ranking Biden Administration officials and social media companies. That’s why, yesterday, we asked the Court to compel the Department of Justice to produce those records. We’re just getting started – stay tuned.”

    Schmitt and Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry filed a Joint Statement on Discovery Disputes “to compel the Department of Justice to turn over communications between high-ranking Biden Administration officials from the White House, Department of State, FBI and others and major social media companies.”

    The email drop included 45 officials at the DHS, Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), CDC, National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), and Office of the Surgeon General.

    Meta, Facebook’s parent company, admitted that 32 officials talked with the company about “content moderation on its platforms, many of whom were not disclosed in response to Plaintiffs’ interrogatories to Defendants.” These officials belonged to the FDA, White House, and U.S. Election Assistance Commission.

    YouTube confirmed officials at the White House and the Census Bureau spoke to the company, “many of whom were also not disclosed by the Defendants.”

    More from the joint statement:

    The discovery provided so far demonstrates that this Censorship Enterprise is extremely broad, including officials in the White House, HHS, DHS, CISA, the CDC, NIAID, and the Office of the Surgeon General; and evidently other agencies as well, such as the Census Bureau, the FDA, the FBI, the State Department, the Treasury Department, and the U.S. Election Assistance Commission. And it rises to the highest levels of the U.S. Government, including numerous White House officials. More discovery is needed to uncover the full scope of this “Censorship Enterprise,” and thus allow Plaintiffs the opportunity to achieve fully effective injunctive relief. Defendants have objected to producing some of the most relevant and probative information in their possession—i.e., the identities, and nature and content of communications, of White House officials and officials at other federal agencies who are not yet Defendants in this case because they were unknown when Plaintiffs served their discovery six weeks ago. Defendants have objected to producing discovery that would reveal both the height and the breadth of the federal “Censorship Enterprise.” The Court should overrule these objections and order Defendants to provide this highly relevant, responsive, and probative information.

    One email showed a White House official pushing Facebook to remove a parody Fauci account.”

  5. There it is… Leftists are now openly calling half of the country ‘fascists’ (and it’s only going to get far worse in the coming weeks), but it’s now clear that they (specifically officials and agencies of the “Censorship Enterprise”) are the true fascists.

    https://www.theepochtimes.com/over-50-biden-administration-employees-12-us-agencies-involved-in-social-media-censorship-push-documents_4704349.html

    More than 50 officials in President Joe Biden’s administration across a dozen agencies have been involved with efforts to pressure Big Tech companies to crack down on alleged misinformation, according to documents released on Aug. 31.

    Senior officials in the U.S. government, including White House lawyer Dana Remus, deputy assistant to the president Rob Flaherty, and onetime White House senior COVID-19 adviser Andy Slavitt, have been in touch with one or more major social media companies to try to get the companies to tighten rules on allegedly false and misleading information on COVID-19, and take action against users who violate the rules, the documents show.

    In July 2021, for instance, after Biden said that Facebook was “killing people” by not combating misinformation effectively, an executive at Meta reached out to Surgeon General Vivek Murthy, a Biden appointee, to say that government and Meta teams met after the remarks “to better understand the scope of what the White House expects from us on misinformation going forward.”

    The same executive later wrote to Murthy saying, “I wanted to make sure you saw the steps we took just this past week to adjust policies on what we are removing with respect to misinformation, as well as steps taken to further address the ‘disinfo dozen,’” including removing pages linked to the group.

    The White House publicly pressured social media companies to take action against a group that officials dubbed the “disinformation dozen,” which a nonprofit claimed were producing the bulk of “anti-vaccine misinformation” on the platforms. Also in July 2021, Murthy said Facebook hadn’t done enough to combat misinformation.

    Flaherty, director of digital strategy for the White House, told Slavitt and others in April 2021 that White House staff would be briefed by Twitter “on vaccine misinfo,” with the meeting including “ways the White House (and our COVID experts) can partner in product work,” according to one of the messages.

    In another exchange that year, a Department of Treasury official working on “mis, dis, and mal-information” told Meta workers that the deputy Treasury secretary wanted to talk about “potential influence operations.”

    In a text in February 2021, meanwhile, U.S. Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) Director Jen Easterly wrote to another agency official that she was “trying to get us in a place where Fed can work with platforms to better understand the mis/dis trends so relevant agencies can try to prebunk/debunk as useful.”

    The documents were part of a preliminary production in a lawsuit levied against the government by the attorneys general of Missouri and Louisiana, later joined by experts maligned by federal officials.

    “If there was ever any doubt the federal government was behind censorship of Americans who dared to dissent from official Covid messaging, that doubt has been erased,” Jenin Younes, a lawyer with the New Civil Liberties Alliance who is representing some of the plaintiffs in the case, said in a statement. “The shocking extent of the government’s involvement in silencing Americans, through coercing social-media companies, has now been revealed.”

  9. I would like more of the posts if you did less name-calling, Aj. I do believe our president has dementia issues but calling him a senile old man as an epitaph is insulting to old men who suffer from dementia. (I have a friend who was just placed on hospice care who has suffered from Alzheimer’s now for a few years, so perhaps I am more sensitive about it. Plus, I see many people who suffer this way.) I really think you would help others see your POV more without the name-calling. It does nothing to promote your viewpoint to call someone a clown, as another example. TIFWIT.

  10. I agree with Kathaleena.

    The use of “scum” last night was over-the-top even for you, AJ. I often think of the verse from Matthew (5:22) that includes:

    “And whoever says to his brother, ‘Raca!’ shall be in danger of the council. But whoever says, ‘You fool!’ shall be in danger of hell fire.”

    Please by more careful, for the sake of your readers and for your own sake.

    Btw, Nancy Pelosi does not drink.

  11. The latest “speech of unity” by Biden was hate filled and the backdrop in my estimation was not a coincidence. Someone behind the curtain wanted this to chill the bones of our citizenry. I have a feeling it did just the opposite. People better wake up.
    If Pelosi doesn’t drink then she’s on drugs. There is no way this woman is operating on all cylinders. To think she, Biden and Harris are “in control” is downright scary. But then we know the Lord is Lord overall therefore we do not fret.
    Politics can incite emotions and while I believe we need to keep them in check I am not offended when someone speaks honestly. If a friend crosses the line so to speak I might step back and tell them they might want to rethink their response. But I need to say I appreciate your passion and honesty Aj….you’re kind of Paul Revere in my life….the British are coming the British are coming…but it’s not the British I am concerned about!!

  12. I think that this is not going to be taken well – and I am sorry for that – but I have to say that insinuating that someone is drunk or that someone has dementia or any similar insinuation is bearing false witness unless you have actual proof of such a thing.

    Many people on social media play fast and loose with facts and the reputations of others. We believers should not be among them.

  13. No offense taken. So I will rephrase. It would appear to me that Pelosi is not in a stable frame of mind. What is causing it I know not but I do know every report of those close to her and her protective mainstream media states she doesn’t drink alcohol…not sure those are reliable sources. As it also has appeared to me from the beginning that Biden is in some stage dementia. I place the cruel blame on those closely around Biden for using him in this farce of an administration. Just my observation not trying to sway anyone else’s

  14. Politics is emotional but as believers it helps to remember our common humanity with even those we disagree with. How would we deal with those folks we seem to despise if we were to talk to them in person? Would we see something different, something more in them as a result of the Holy Spirit?

    When I feel strongly opposed to a politician or candidate and find myself thinking uncharitable personal thoughts about them that go beyond legitimate political criticism but instead is highly personal, I try to imagine them with their families and friends, see them in my mind’s eye as actual “people,” as family members, mothers and fathers, sisters, best friends, with all the trials and struggles and life challenges we all are going through also. That brings me back to a more charitable view of them (while I can still strongly disagree with their politics).

    I remember feeling alarmed as a believer at some of the rather hateful emotions I felt about former President Clinton when all of that controversy was going on. I knew my feelings about him were much too tied up in anger, I remember talking about that to a friend at church.

    So yes, I look at Biden and I disapprove of him as a leader — but I also cringe when I see the clips of him struggling to get into his jacket (amid audience laughter when the clip is shown) or stumbling over his words. It’s sad, life is hard, getting old is hard.

    We’re all dust. And we will all be there soon enough, my friends.

    In that sense I believe we always need to maintain our compassion for others, including those we consider our “enemies,” even those we believe are poor and unworthy leaders. We’re called to do that as believers. We can pray that they be converted or not remain in or gain power, that’s fair enough. We can and should vote against them.

    But the personal derision and assuming the worst about them personally when we don’t even know them at all I think is when we step over the line, whether it’s voiced or not.

    How do we model political involvement and engagement as believers to the rest of the world? It’s a question I think we should be asking ourselves.

    And no, it’s not always easy and we all fail at it, me (definitely) included. But it is the biblical standard we are called to pursue.

  15. Pointing out the well known fact that Nancy is a day drinker is reality.

    Sorry if you’re offended, but I’m offended by her day drinking while “on duty”.

    Scum is my opinion of him and his ilk. Again, reality. He proved it again last night. He hates us, vilifies us, and attempts to turn half the country on us. That’s as scummy as it gets, and that’s just reality.

    I will try to limit it for your sakes, but that garbage last night needs to be pointed out, and sorry if you thought I did so too harshly. The man is pathetic, unqualified, delusional, and an embarrassment. That needs to be pointed out and shouted from the rooftops.

  16. But is it a “well known fact”? How do we know that? (An honest question, how do you have that information about her and know it to be true?)

    That’s setting aside the biblical issue of compassion, but I realize that opinions and “information” about personal lives now is thrown pretty carelessly about.

    How do you (really) know what you know — is always a good question to ask others (and ourselves).

  17. This is one piece among many that refer to this rumor. Videos have been slowed down to make it appear that she slurs her words, and photos have been taken out of context.

    https://www.tampabay.com/florida-politics/buzz/2020/08/04/politifact-nancy-pelosi-doesnt-drink-so-why-do-false-claims-about-her-being-drunk-keep-going-viral/

    But even if somebody does slur their words or look drunk, that doesn’t mean that they are. There are other reasons for appearing that way. I often half-wonder if my neighbors think I look drunk when I walk up the lane because I can rarely walk in a straight line – I weave this way and that as I walk. Perhaps related to my balance issue? Not sure, but it can be embarrassing.
