Flip-flop: Joe Biden to restart construction of border wall

May 13, 2021

First Joe Biden flipped, and then he flopped, and then he flipped again when it came to the number of people he was going to allow to claim refugee status and now he is having trouble deciding what to do with the border wall. First Joe Biden cancelled funding for construction of the border wall but now, according to this story, he has caved to pressure and will allow construction to restart. Here is more:

BREAKING: .@FoxNews has confirmed via the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers that construction on a 13.4 mile stretch of border wall in the Rio Grande Valley will *RESUME* after pressure from local residents & politicians.

The Biden admin previously halted all wall construction in Jan.

I think it is pretty clear what is going on here: Joe Biden is a xenophobe, a white supremist, and a racist who does not want anybody who does not look like him coming into “his” country…

Idaho Governor signs law preventing State from enforcing Biden’s gun control proposals

May 11, 2021

Back at the end of April, in anticipation of Joe Biden’s expected gun control Executive Actions, Montana’s Governor signed a bill into law which would protect his residents from said actions. At that time we learned there were 12 other States that were preparing legislation along the same lines and now, according to this story, another State has followed suit. Idaho Governor Brad Little has signed a law to prohibit Joe Biden’s gun control Executive Orders from being enforced. Here is more:

Idaho Gov. Brad Little (R) signed legislation Monday to prohibit enforcement of the executive actions for gun control put forth by President Joe Biden.

One outworking of those executive actions has been the Department of Justice’s attempt to reclassify certain gun parts kits as “firearms.”

The executive actions are also expected to lead to DOJ action against AR-pistols with stabilizer braces.

The new law is retroactive to January 20, 2021. It is designed to prevent “Idaho government entities from enforcing executive orders, federal laws, treaties, agency orders and rules of the U.S. government involving firearms, firearm components, firearm accessories or ammunition that conflict with the Idaho Constitution.”

It is good to see the States starting to fight back against these unconstitutional measures, but it is time for all these other States to step up as well!

Vacation

May 7, 2021

I just wanted to take a moment to let you all know that we are on vacation and will not be back until late Monday so I probably will not be around much, if at all, over the next few days. I meant to post something yesterday but it got a little crazy in the morning before we left.

The FBI is breaking into corporate computers

May 5, 2021

Using the excuse that the government needs to protect corporations from malware attacks, the FBI has been breaking into private corporate computers. Here is more:

The FBI has the authority right now to access privately owned computers without their owners’ knowledge or consent, and to delete software. It’s part of a government effort to contain the continuing attacks on corporate networks running Microsoft Exchange software, and it’s an unprecedented intrusion that’s raising legal questions about just how far the government can go.

And unfortunately it was a court decision in Texas which has granted the FBI this permission:

On April 9, the United States District Court for the Southern District of Texas approved a search warrant allowing the U.S. Department of Justice to carry out the operation.

Here is a some more detail about this covert operation:

The FBI is accessing hundreds of these mail servers in corporate networks. The search warrant allows the FBI to access the web shells, enter the previously discovered password for a web shell, make a copy for evidence, and then delete the web shell. The FBI, though, was not authorized to remove any other malware that hackers might have installed during the breach or otherwise access the contents of the servers.

What makes this case unique is both the scope of the FBI’s actions to remove the web shells and the unprecedented intrusion into privately owned computers without the owners’ consent. The FBI undertook the operation without consent because of the large number of unprotected systems throughout U.S. networks and the urgency of the threat.

The FBI can sneak into a corporation’s computer without the owner’s permission, poke around in there, delete certain files, and leave without leaving a trace. It does not take a genius to figure out what is wrong with this, nor does it take much imagination to understand this is ripe for abuse by the politicalized FBI.

Flip-flop…flip: Joe Biden will raise refugee cap to 62,500 after all

May 4, 2021

During the campaign Joe Biden claimed that Donald Trump’s 15,000 person limit on refugees was a bigoted, racist, xenophobic policy and he vowed that under his administration it would be come one, come all. Even after he became President, Joe Biden promised to raise the refugee cap to a total higher than it was when Barack Obama was President, however he quickly flip-flopped on that promise and decided he would keep the cap at Donald Trump’s 15,000 after all.

You can imagine the ire and the consternation this decision drew from the left, they were not very pleased to say the least. Well, apparently they put enough pressure on good ole Uncle Joe because now he has flipped back to his original position and will increase the refugee cap to 62,500 after all. Here is more:

President Biden on Monday reversed himself and said he would allow as many as 62,500 refugees to enter the United States during the next six months, eliminating the sharp limits that President Donald J. Trump imposed on those seeking refuge from war, violence or natural disasters.

The action comes about two weeks after Mr. Biden announced that he was leaving Mr. Trump’s limit of 15,000 refugees in place, which drew widespread condemnation from Democrats and refugee advocates who accused the president of reneging on a campaign promise to welcome those in need.

Mr. Biden quickly backtracked, promising only hours later that he intended to increase refugee admissions. With Monday’s announcement, the president formally bowed to the pressure.

Even the New York Times is having difficulty trying to keep up and defend Joe Biden’s wind-blown positions on immigration.

The truth is Joe Biden does not really have multiple positions on this issue, or any other issue for that matter, the truth is Joe Biden has NO position on any issue. His handlers fight over which position they will go forth with and Joe Biden delivers the message, he is just a puppet dancing at the end of the strings and on the refugee cap they had him dancing a jig.

Xenophobic Joe Biden bans travel from India

April 30, 2021

It is being reported that Joe Biden has banned travel from India in response to an alleged COVID-19 surge in that country, here is more:

U.S. President Joe Biden on Friday imposed new travel restrictions on India in light of the COVID-19 epidemic, barring most non-U.S. citizens from entering the United States.

The new restrictions, which take effect on Tuesday, May 4 at 12:01 am ET (0401 GMT), are on the advice of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and were imposed because “the magnitude and scope of the COVID-19 pandemic” in India was “surging,” the White House said.

Biden on Friday signed a proclamation implementing the restrictions, which were first reported by Reuters.

I think you all know where I am going with this so I will keep it short and sweet. I thought it was Xenophobic and racist to ban travel from certain countries, even if you are doing it to protect your constituents? Isn’t that what the left had been saying for the last four years? I no longer can keep tabs on what is racist and what is not any more. America first Joe…

Leaked audio contradicts John Kerry’s excuse for leaking Israeli State secrets to Iran

April 30, 2021

Earlier this week newly leaked audio dropped the bombshell news that John Kerry, while Secretary of State, gave Iran Foreign Minister Javad Zarif information about secret Israeli military actions in Syria. Since that time the State Department has been making excuses for John Kerry by basically saying it is no big deal because Iran knew about actions anyway.

However, this same leaked audio contradicts the lame excuse the State Department has been throwing around. Javad Zariff did not know about the Israeli strikes until John Kerry told him. Here is more:

Leaked audiotape of Iranian foreign minister Javad Zarif indicates he had no knowledge of covert Israeli military strikes before former secretary of state John Kerry provided him with the information, new details that contradict the State Department’s recent defense of Kerry.

The New York Times reported that Zarif said on the tape that Kerry told him Israel launched 200 airstrikes against Iranian interests in Syria. The Times did not provide further details on that issue.

Stop the presses! The New York Times did not report all the details of the audio, shocking! Why would that be? Let us read on and see:

 But an independent translation of the audiotape commissioned by the Washington Free Beacon shows that Zarif went on to clarify that he had no prior knowledge of these Israeli strikes before Kerry told him.

“Kerry told me that Israel had launched 200 airstrikes against you [Iran],” said Zarif. “You didn’t know?” asked his interviewer. “No, no,” he replied.

These new details contradict top State Department officials, who have repeatedly said the information was already in the public domain and not classified.

There are only two possible reasons why the New York Times left out this little detail, either the paper was trying to set him up or it was trying to protect him. Seeing as John Kerry is a liberal Democrat the first option is eliminated, so that means the paper was trying to protect him and is it not ironic that in trying to protect John Kerry they exposed him as a liar? Maybe this was all just a botched joke…

Joe Biden moves to ban menthol cigarettes…because they are racist

April 28, 2021

Menthol cigarettes have been coming under fire for years and it looks like Joe Biden is going to ban them. In an age where the Government is forcing people to wear masks for health reasons it was only a matter of time before something like this happened, and it will eventually spill over into regulating what types of food people can eat. So while this move is not surprising you might find the reasoning a bit weird, it turns out menthol cigarettes are racist. Here is more:

The Biden administration is expected to announce this week that it will propose a ban on menthol cigarettes, an action urgently sought by tobacco opponents and civil rights groups that say African Americans have been disproportionately hurt by the industry’s aggressive targeting of Black communities.

The administration also is poised to say it will seek to ban menthol and other flavors in mass-produced cigars, including small cigars popular with young people, according to administration officials familiar with the situation who spoke on the condition of anonymity because they are not authorized to discuss it publicly.

I don’t know, banning something because black people like it more than white people do is what seems racist to me…

Leaked audio has Iran’s foreign minister admitting John Kerry leaked secret Israel intel to Iran

April 27, 2021

We already know that John Kerry was trying to undermine Donald Trump’s Iran policy by conducting secret meetings with Javad Zarif via a backdoor channel, and we know this because he admitted it. This is a pretty clear violation of the Logan Act, but it is getting even worse for the former Secretary of State because audio has surfaced in which Javad Zarif admits that John Kerry was giving him secret intelligence on Israeli activity in Syria while serving in the Obama administration.

Here is more:

Iranian foreign minister Mohammad Javad Zarif claimed in recently leaked audio that John Kerry, when he was serving as Secretary of State during the Obama administration, informed him of more than 200 Israeli operations in Syria.

Kerry shocked Zarif by revealing that Israel had attacked Iranian targets in Syria more than 200 times, according to leaked audio obtained by The New York Times and other outlets. 

Of course John Kerry is denying the claims but we should remember that John Kerry does have a special interest in the goings on of Iran considering his daughter is married to a prominent Iranian, I do not think it is too hard to figure out where he true loyalty is.
