As Biden Faces Questions About His Mental Health, He Makes Up War That Never Happened

Western Journal

Published

on

In January of 2020, shortly after a U.S. drone strike took out Iranian Maj. Gen. Qasem Soleimani — head of the country’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, denoted as a terrorist organization — presidential candidate Joe Biden said Trump put us “dangerously close” to war.

“No one wants war,” Biden said, according to CBS News. However, Trump’s strategy was “dangerously incompetent” which could “explode geopolitics in the region.”

Thus, while we didn’t want war, it could happen “by accident.”

Maybe we all missed the war with Iran that followed, considering the COVID-19 pandemic that began to sweep the world just weeks after Biden made these remarks. Maybe it got lost in the news shuffle; after all, CNN only had 24 hours to go after the Trump administration and it’d be hard to work a conflict with Tehran into the crawl.

Or maybe Joe Biden is a man who tends to do and say a lot of things “by accident.”

Whichever it was, on Thursday, speaking in North Carolina to promote the COVID vaccination, Biden claimed we’d fought a war against Iran, despite the obvious fact we haven’t.

“We lost 600,000 dead in America in about a year,” Biden said, according to the New York Post.

“That’s more than every life lost in World War I, World War II, the Vietnam War, Iraq, Iran, across the board — Afghanistan. More lives lost in a year than every major war in the 20th century and the 21st century.”



The speech came hours after a strange news conference at the White House in which he whispered at reporters and chuckled after he had to be reminded to mention the Shoreside, Florida condominium collapse. It also comes after a campaign and presidency filled with strange moments which called Biden’s mental fitness into question.

The Post raised the potential that Biden was bringing up the eight Americans that died when two helicopters collided in an attempt to rescue Americans during the Iranian hostage crisis in 1980. However, more have died in other actual invasions (19 during the 1983 invasion of Grenada and 40 in the 1989 invasion of Panama) than during the hostage rescue mission.

There’s also the potential that he meant to say Afghanistan and was merely correcting himself when he mentioned that conflict a few seconds later. Clarifications usually clarify, however — and in this case, you could just as easily say Biden forgot we had a war in Afghanistan, the same way he forgot we didn’t have a conflict with Iran.

And there is the point that no matter why Biden mentioned this, he’s correct — COVID-19 has killed more than our war with Iran, the same way it’s killed more than our wars with Uzbekistan, Lesotho, Liechtenstein, Freedonia and the moon.

The most likely explanation, given how often gaffery strikes Biden, is this: It was a place of conflict that came immediately to mind during a portion of his speech when he wasn’t looking directly at the teleprompter during the speech and he mentioned it.

Whatever the case, coming hours after the odd performance at the White House news conference, didn’t impress social media users.

The sad thing is, it doesn’t need damage control; the media is more than happy to pretend this problem doesn’t exist. In the meantime, as it regards Tehran, it turns out that promised war just slip under the radar during the COVID-19 pandemic. (Trust me, I googled it.)

It’s worth noting, however, that the Biden administration continues to attempt to steer the United States back into the Iran nuclear deal the Trump administration pulled us out of. That pact, negotiated under the Obama administration, did nothing to stop Tehran’s buildup of conventional weapons or its proxy wars abroad and only kicked the can down the road for a decade when it came to their ability to develop a nuclear weapon.

If you do want that war with Iran, in other words, perhaps all you need to do is wait.

'The View' Co-Hosts Who Tested Positive for COVID Didn't Even Have It

Western Journal

Published

on

A disturbing incident on ABC’s “The View” spotlights an alarming problem with current coronavirus protocols.

On Friday — just moments before Vice President Kamala Harris was scheduled to appear in person — “The View” co-hosts Ana Navarro and Sunny Hostin were abruptly rushed off stage amid revelations that they had tested positive for COVID-19.

Both Navarro and Hostin are vaccinated.

The Harris interview, which was supposed to be on-set, was changed to a remote interview following an awkward delay.

Insiders at the left-wing talk show told the New York Post on Sunday that both Hostin and Navarro subsequently tested negative, ruling their first tests a false positive.

“They were pissed because everyone’s been waiting for this big interview for two weeks now, and then it was derailed because of a false positive,” an insider said.

A second source said the incident was especially shocking because producers announced the hosts’ test results on air without their permission.

Not only is that embarrassing, but it’s also unethical to reveal someone’s health issues on national television without their express consent.

“It was not OK. They made the decision to reveal their COVID-19 results in the heat of the moment when they should’ve gone to commercial break,” a second insider told the Post.

“They could’ve stopped and thought about how to handle it, as opposed to being crazy on the air and running around like chickens with their heads cut off,” the source said.

On Saturday, Navarro tweeted that she had tested negative for a third time. This indicates that her initial positive test result on Friday was indeed a false-positive.

Hostin had not commented on the incident, but she and Navarro were back in the studio on Monday.

At the start of Monday’s show, co-host Joy Behar announced that both tests had turned out to be false positives and everyone is “safe, healthy and COVID-free.”

The show’s executive producer, Brian Teta, issued an apology to Navarro and Hostin.

“The View” hosts and staff are tested for the coronavirus multiple times a week. It’s unclear why this measure is necessary when they’re all supposedly vaccinated.

However, the shocking incident from Friday has enraged some employees, who slammed ABC’s sloppy testing protocol as an “epic fail.”

“It was so crazy,” one insider told the Post. “Nobody knew what was going on. Everyone at ABC had a different answer about what was going on.”

The Food and Drug Administration has warned that false-positive results do occur with COVID-19 tests.

“The FDA is aware of reports of false positive results associated with antigen tests used in nursing homes and other settings,” the agency revealed in November 2020.

It issued another warning about false-positive tests eight months later in July.

The alarming regularity of false positives is worrisome because it suggests that infection rates are being artificially inflated.

This stokes public panic and suggests that we’re not being told the truth about the pandemic and the actions taken to fight it.

One Twitter user wrote: “So proof that the number of positive cases is most likely inflated? How many people got one test and went home to quarantine and never questioned it?”

Conservative commentator Christian Walker mocked the delicious irony of the vaccinated co-hosts of “The View” testing positive “after screaming about how the unvaccinated are super spreaders.”

Janice Dean, Fox News’ senior meteorologist, was stunned that “The View” producers apparently announced Navarro and Hostin’s test results without their express consent.

This farcical incident underscores that the fearmongering being fomented by Democrats and their media puppets can boomerang on even the most virtue-signaling COVID alarmists, such as Navarro and Hostin.

In other words, self-righteous vaxxers who attack Americans because they’re unwilling to submit to oppressive vaccine passports are not exempt from becoming victims of left-wing hysteria.

Former Marine Allegedly Kills Deputy, Manhunt Underway Amid Fears His Training Gives Him an Edge

Western Journal

Published

on

A Florida deputy died Sunday, two days after he was shot during a traffic stop.

In response to the death of Deputy Joshua Moyers, 29, a Blue Alert has been issued in Florida’s Nassau County for Patrick McDowell, a former Marine suspected of shooting Moyers during a traffic stop early Friday morning just north of Jacksonville, according to WBFS-TV.

Nassau County Sheriff Bill Leeper said doctors tried to save Moyers, who was shot in the face and back, but “there was just nothing they could do for Josh.” On Saturday, Leeper said Moyers would not survive, but was being kept alive until his organs could be donated.

McDowell, 35, has been on the run ever since. Some say finding McDowell could result in even more death.

“I know he was military trained, and he was a very good student, very professional. I didn’t know anything negative about him,” weapons instructor Del Angelo, who trained McDowell as a security guard, told WJXT-TV.

“We just trained him basically for security response and how to use a handgun for self-defense or for protecting an area and he was very accomplished in his use of a handgun.”

Angelo said he thinks McDowell will make it in the woods.


“He’s very much a survivalist and he’s been military trained on survival and weapons use. So he’s very accomplished at survival and being unrecognized,” he said. “He can’t change his appearance but he can sure hide well and know how to stay out of people’s line of sight.”

According to WJXT, McCowell served in the Marines from 2005 to 2009, deploying twice as part of Operation Iraqi Freedom. He served in the Marine Corps Reserve from 2009 to 2013, WJXT reported.

Marine veteran Dallas Harpe, a Nassau County resident, said the hunt for McDowell might take some time.

“A man could survive in the woods with the training that he’s got up to 30 days or so,” said Harpe, a small arms and rifle instructor, according to WJXT-TV.

“The most important part of the basic training that would be helping him is when you’re going through infantry training, you’re taught to camouflage yourself, blend in with your surroundings. You’re taught discipline where you can remain absolutely still no matter what’s going on around you and the ability to move quietly through the woods,” said Harpe.

“It looks like there’s a lot of wetlands, so a man could slip through where it’s wet and his scent would be lost to the dogs and that would help him hide. If he walks through water, they’ll lose the scent,” he said.

Police are using heat-seeking technology, helicopters and drones in the hunt.

The technology could defeat training, Harpe said.

“You could have all the training in the world, but you can’t hide your body heat from heat sensors unless you have special material, and I doubt that he has because of the way that he entered the woods,” said Harpe.

A flashlight and a hat believed to belong to McDowell have been found, WJXT reported.

Police organizations are offering more than $50,000 for information the leads to McDowell’s arrest, according to the Tampa Bay Times.
