Biden administration launches investigation into…broken McDonald’s ice cream machines

September 4, 2021

You cannot make this stuff up: with everything that is going on in the country and around the world today the Biden administration has launched an investigation into McDonald’s ice cream machines, which apparently break down quite often. Here is more:

President Joe Biden’s Federal Trade Commission has begun to look into the too-oft broken McDonald’s ice cream machines, which have angered consumers and franchise owners for years.

The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has carried out an inquiry into the Mcdonald’s broken ice cream machines. The inquiry seeks to discover if Taylor Commercial Foodservice LLC, the manufacturer of the machines, has engaged in practices that hinder McDonald’s owners’ abilities to fix machines themselves or seek repairs from a third party.

The FTC has ramped up efforts to prevent manufacturing companies from prohibiting personal or third-party repair of products sold to consumers and businesses.

In a statement, McDonald’s aimed to cool down any buzz regarding a potential FTC inquiry. “Nothing is more important to us than delivering on our high standards for food quality and safety, which is why we work with fully vetted partners that can reliably provide safe solutions at scale.”

We know that Joe Biden cannot multi-task and you have to have priorities I guess. And we all know how much good ole Uncle Joe loves his ice cream…

Supreme Court refuses Biden plea to halt Trump’s ‘remain in Mexico’ policy

August 25, 2021

Joe Biden is in the process of trying to dismantle Donald Trump’s immigration policy and one of the items he tried to do away with was the “remain in Mexico” policy, which requires asylum seekers to stay in Mexico while their case is heard.

The Biden administration was quickly sued by a couple of States, and on August 14th a Federal Judge reinstated the policy, claiming that the President broke Federal law by halting the program. Needless to say, the Biden administration turned around and appealed the decision. The Biden administration was seeking to have a stay granted so that the policy reversal could continue while the case made it through the court system but yesterday, in a 6-3 decision, the Supreme Court refused to allow the administration to halt the remain in Mexico policy. Here is more:

The Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) denied a plea from President Joe Biden’s Department of Justice (DOJ) to halt the Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP) program while a lawsuit brought by Texas and Missouri makes its way through the courts.

On Tuesday evening, in a 6-3 decision, SCOTUS issued an order denying DOJ’s request for the Court to issue a stay that would block the re-implementation of MPP, commonly known as “Remain in Mexico,” while the case plays out in the courts — a process that could take more than a year.

Chief Justice John Roberts, along with Justices Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito, Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh, and Amy Coney Barrett, voted to deny the request, while Justices Stephen Breyer, Sonia Sotomayor, and Elena Kagan voted to grant the request.

“The application for a stay presented to Justice Alito and by him referred to the Court is denied,” SCOTUS wrote in the order:

The applicants have failed to show a likelihood of success on the claim that the memorandum rescinding the Migrant Protection Protocols was not arbitrary and capricious. Our order denying the Government’s request for a stay of the District Court injunction should not be read as affecting the construction of that injunction by the Court of Appeals.

This is not the first time the Supreme Court has allowed to remain in Mexico policy to continue during a court battle. Back in 2020 when the policy was first implemented and some States were suing to stop the policy the Supreme Court allowed the policy to continue. To me this is an indication that the policy is legal and I would believe this is a possible indication on how the Supreme Court will rule when the case finally makes it there.

New York Times: mask wearing will help children with nose-picking

August 21, 2021

Some people have raised concerns about the phycological long term effects of forcing children to wear masks for extended periods of time but have no fear the New York Times has found the bright side in this whole affair. It turns out children with masks on cannot pick their noses. Here is more:

Mask-wearing mandates for young children in schools offer many positive benefits according to a recent New York Times op-ed claiming masks provide “distinctive opportunities for learning and growth,” improve social and cognitive skills, strengthen self-control and attention, help conquer habits such as nose-picking and nail-biting, and empower children to “practice caring.”

Because there have been no studies done at this early date proving this theory one way or the other, the Times expert points to other certain cultures where some people are forced to cover their faces all day as proof there are no long term health concerns. But then to take it one more step she actually goes on to say that even blind people can speak and read. Who can argue with that logic?

FBI admits there is no evidence January 6th was an insurrection

August 20, 2021

For months we have heard from the Democrats and the mainstream media about the so-called armed insurrection by Trump supporters on January 6th. Democrats have gone so far as to form a commission to look into the attempted coup and we have heard some of our Democratic friends talk about how they feared they were going to be raped or killed in this violent overthrow of the government.

The FBI has been looking into this and now it is being reported that the FBI has found no evidence of any type on insurrection, here is more:

The FBI has found scant evidence that the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol was the result of an organized plot to overturn the presidential election result, according to four current and former law enforcement officials.

Though federal officials have arrested more than 570 alleged participants, the FBI at this point believes the violence was not centrally coordinated by far-right groups or prominent supporters of then-President Donald Trump, according to the sources, who have been either directly involved in or briefed regularly on the wide-ranging investigations.

“Ninety to ninety-five percent of these are one-off cases,” said a former senior law enforcement official with knowledge of the investigation. “Then you have five percent, maybe, of these militia groups that were more closely organized. But there was no grand scheme with Roger Stone and Alex Jones and all of these people to storm the Capitol and take hostages.”

FBI investigators did find that cells of protesters, including followers of the far-right Oath Keepers and Proud Boys groups, had aimed to break into the Capitol. But they found no evidence that the groups had serious plans about what to do if they made it inside, the sources said.

Yet the politically motivated January 6th commission plods onward and worse than that American citizens are rotting in solitary confinement and being abused and not one person is doing anything about this cruel and unusual punishment. It is truly unprecedented. Democrats made a scapegoat out of the Muslim cartoonist for the Benghazi attack and now they are showing us how far they will sink to make a political point.

Federal Judge reinstates Donald Trump’s ‘remain in Mexico’ policy for asylum seekers

August 14, 2021

Donald Trump had a policy that stated asylum seekers had to remain in Mexico while they awaited their hearings in the United States but back in June Joe Biden ended the policy. The State of Texas decided to sue the Biden administration to have the policy reinstated and now, according to this story, a Federal Judge in Texas has reinstated the policy. Here is more:

A federal judge has ordered the reinstatement of former President Trump’s “Remain in Mexico” policy, which required border crossers claiming asylum to stay in Mexico while awaiting their hearings, after President Joe Biden ended the program earlier this year.

On Friday evening, Judge Matthew J. Kacsmaryk, appointed by Trump, ordered the Biden administration to reinstate the Migration Protection Protocols (MPP), commonly known as Remain in Mexico, after ending the program June 1 while releasing thousands of border crossers enrolled in the program into the United States interior.

Kacsmaryk, in his ruling, states that the Biden administration violated federal law when the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) ended Remain in Mexico and failed to consider “several of the main benefits” of the program — including that border crossers returned to Mexico who did not have legitimate claims for asylum were returning to their native countries on their own.

“DHS’s first duty is to uphold American law,” Kacsmaryk writes. “It cannot just point at diplomatic efforts as an excuse to not follow the [Administrative Procedure Act] APA or fulfill its statutory obligations.”

In addition, Kacsmaryk states that the Biden administration violated federal law by when it began releasing border crossers enrolled in Remain in Mexico into the U.S. interior because the law requires DHS to detain or return border crossers.

Kacsmaryk ordered that the Biden administration is “permanently enjoined and restrained from implementing or enforcing the June 1 Memorandum” that had ended Remain in Mexico.

This is sure to be challenged by the Biden administration so we will see how “permanently enjoined and restrained” from implementing the new policy the Biden administration is, but the Supreme Court has already ruled once that the policy can remain in place when the rule was challenged during the Trump administration.

Hunter Biden admits losing another laptop to Russian prostitute

August 11, 2021

Hunter, Hunter, Hunter; the gift that keeps on giving. Of course I am talking about Hunter Biden and his laptop, but not that one. Nope, it turns out that the President’s son has admitted to losing another laptop, this time to a Russian prostitute after…well, you know. Here is more:

Hunter Biden claimed during a post-coital conversation with a woman identified by the Daily Mail as a prostitute that Russian drug dealers stole his laptop (not the one abandoned to a Delaware computer repair shop) during a Vegas bender where he nearly drowned in a hotel hot tub, according to footage unearthed by the tabloid.

The alleged incident would mean Hunter lost a total of three computers – the first abandoned at a Delaware computer store and the second seized by federal agents –  each likely to hold sensitive information on President Joe Biden and the embarrassing pictures, videos and communications of his son.

The third laptop still appears to be missing – and was taken by Russian drug dealers after they partied with Hunter in Vegas, he told a prostitute in a conversation caught on camera.

“I think he’s the one that stole my computer. I think the three of them, the three guys that were like a little group. The dealer and his two guys, I took them everywhere. F***ing everywhere, crazy out of your mind sh**,” he says. “They have videos of me doing crazy f***ing sex f***ing, you know.”

There is quite a bit more if you follow the link if you care to read the sordid details but he does end up telling the prostitute that he is very concerned the laptop could be used to blackmail his father.

If you are like me this story immediately made you think of the Russian “pee dossier” and how it revolved around a prostitute and certain things which will not be mentioned here. We also know that it was all made up and yet it was used for four years to investigate a President who was supposedly compromised by Russia, yet here we have an admission by Hunter Biden that Russia is in possession of material which could compromise Joe Biden and yet there is nary a word from the left…

Joe Biden’s ATF nominee in trouble in the Senate

August 9, 2021

Before I start this post I just would like to make the point that I only have one problem with the ATF and that is that there is an ATF. But as long as we have an ATF it supposedly needs somebody to head it and Joe Biden chose the gun-grabbing David Chipman to do so. But now, according to this story, David Chipman is in serious trouble with the Senate and his nomination could be doomed. Here is more:

David Chipman, Joe Biden’s choice to head the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, is in danger of not being confirmed in the Senate thanks to his work with an anti-Second Amendment group and his withholding of vital information during his confirmation hearing.

Several moderate Democratic senators, including Angus King of Maine and Jon Tester of Montana, don’t believe that Chipman can work with the gun industry. Other Democrats like Senators Joe Manchin question his veracity after Chipman withheld the fact that he made an appearance on a Chinese state-run propaganda outlet that was used by the Communists to explain away a mass stabbing.

“Earlier this week, news reports indicated that Mr. Chairman had failed to disclosure to our colleagues on the Judiciary Committee a TV appearance he made several years ago,” stated Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell. “And this wasn’t just any TV appearance. Mr. Chipman had granted the interview to a propaganda network overseen by the Chinese government.”

Biden has to convince Democrats to support his man, and it doesn’t look good at this point. There is little chance that Majority Leader Chuck Schumer will bring the nomination to the Senate floor before the August recess given the tight Senate schedule. The longer that the nominee remains in limbo, the stronger the opposition to his nomination will get.

Dick Durbin also expressed doubt that a vote would be taken on David Chipman before the recess. With all of these Democrats seemingly opposed to the nomination it would appear he is doomed, but I am sure they are standing there with their hands out waiting to hear what they will get in return of a vote in favor.

Joe Biden’s Homeland Security admits ‘significantly increased rates’ of COVID positive people crossing the border illegally

August 6, 2021

Earlier this week we learned that at least one Texas town declared a State of Disaster and began erecting emergency shelters due the high influx of illegal immigrants which the Biden administration is dumping into the community who have tested positive for COVID-19.

That one town reported that the Biden administration has released 7,000 COVID-19 positive illegal immigrants into its community alone, we can only imagine how many are either being detained or released into communities all over the country. And now the Department of Homeland Security was forced to admit in a court brief that yes, people who have COVID-19 are crossing the border at “significantly increased rates.”

Here is more:

The rate at which coronavirus-positive border crossers are arriving in the United States has “increased significantly,” according to President Joe Biden’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS).

David Shahoulian, DHS’s assistant secretary for border and immigration policy, admitted in a court brief filed this week that the agency has seen “significantly increased rates” of coronavirus-positive border crossers arriving at the U.S.-Mexico border, spurring “extremely worrisome” conditions at border facilities.

From the brief:

DHS is also experiencing significantly increased rates of noncitizens testing positive for COVID19. 

This risk has recently increased due to the recent spread of the highly transmissible COVID-19 Delta variant. The rates at which encountered noncitizens are testing positive for COVID-19 have increased significantly in recent weeks. And although the rate of infection among CBP officers had been declining, this rate recently began increasing again, even though the percentage of officers and agents who have been fully vaccinated has grown significantly since January. This has led to increasing numbers of CBP personnel being isolated and hospitalized.

Now, we have been told over and over again, and again in the quote above, that this Delta variant is highly contagious and that is why it is so dangerous. Also, the Department of Homeland Security is admitting that this policy of releasing illegal immigrants into the community who are COVID-19 positive because of the Delta variant is increasing the risk of contagion and yet the Biden administration continues to adhere to this potentially deadly policy. Does any of this sound like this administration cares about the American people and does any of this sound like this virus is as deadly and as dangerous as we are being told? If the virus is as dangerous as we are being told then Joe Biden is criminally negligent in his sworn duty to protect the American people.

Texas town declares State of Disaster after Biden administration releases 7,000 COVID positive illegal immigrants into the community

August 4, 2021

We have known for quite awhile that despite new restrictions being put on Americans in some areas of the country, and despite the talk of creating a no-fly list of unvaccinated Americans that illegal immigrants are being released into the community without even being tested for COVID. It seems fairly obvious to everybody who is not in the Biden administration that if your policy is going to be catch and release that people who are caught trying to sneak into the country should be tested before being released.

Now we are learning that one Texas town has declared a State of Disaster because the Biden administration has released 7,000 COVID positive illegal immigrants into the community and that includes 1,500 last week here is more:

And according to this story McAllen is building emergency shelters to house COVID positive illegal immigrants:

The city of McAllen constructed emergency shelters for illegal aliens released by Border Patrol agents.

The city of McAllen told Fox News that the federal government is releasing “an alarming number of immigrants into McAllen, and that the feds aren’t testing them for COVID.”

It seems to me that if the Biden administration was really concerned about the spike in cases across the country that one of the first things he would do would be to secure the border, and if not that then at least he would test people who are sneaking into the country and make them quarantine for 14 days. If this variant is as dangerous and as contagious as we are being told it is to do anything less should be criminal. Nothing this negligent has been done concerning COVID since Andrew Cuomo released COVID patients into the nursing homes…

Joe Biden resumes fast-track deportation flights

July 31, 2021

There seems to be two simultaneous illegal immigration battles being fought in the country. The first is the public battle being fought between the two sides in the media, and the second is what is going on behind the scenes that Joe Biden would rather keep behind the scenes so as not to alienate (pardon the pun) Democratic voters.

Despite his campaign promises and rhetoric, and despite much of the coverage in the mainstream media, Joe Biden’s immigration policies have been closer to Donald Trump’s than he, the Democrats with a few exceptions, and the media would care to admit.

Do not get me wrong, I am not trying to say Joe Biden is anywhere as close to being as tough on immigration as Donald Trump was, however he has quietly either kept or reinstated some of the Trump administration’s policies. The President actually expanded the much maligned “kids in cages” program, is still implementing what we were told was the inhuman and heartless policy of separating families at the border, and at one point was considering keeping the refugee cap at Trump administration levels. All of this was ignored by the media…

Now we are getting word that Joe Biden is resuming fast-track deportation flights so he can get some illegal immigrants out of the country as fast as possible. Here is more:

The Biden administration on Friday resumed fast-track deportation flights to Central America following another spike in families crossing the border into the Rio Grande Valley of Texas.

The administration announced plans to resume the expedited removals on Monday, responding to building pressure on the White House to increase enforcement at the Southern border as the Covid Delta variant spreads in Texas and across the U.S.

“Families apprehended by Customs and Border Protection were removed via U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Air Operations to their home countries of Guatemala, El Salvador, and Honduras,” a statement from the Department of Homeland Security said. “The expedited removal process is a lawful means to securely manage our border, and it is a step toward our broader aim to realize safe and orderly immigration processing.”

The Biden administration has continued to use the public health order, known as Title 42, which was invoked by former President Donald Trump at the start of the pandemic to expel migrants without allowing them to seek asylum.

There is always the chance that this article was written as a way to make Joe Biden appear to be tougher on illegal immigration than he really is in order to maybe win over some votes from right-leaning people, however I do not think that is the case.

I think it is more likely that Joe Biden (actually, the person who is really in charge) understands he has a real problem on his hands at the southern border but does not want to admit his policies have failed, or admit the left was wrong on this issue. So these policies are being put into motion under the radar and without media scrutiny so that Joe Biden will not seem to be the nativist, xenophobic, racist the left claimed that Donald Trump was for implementing the same policy.
