Biden Baits Trump with Purposefully-Inflammatory Border Claim

This is a stunt…plain and simple.

When it comes to determining someone’s political leanings here in American, there are a few subjects upon which the divide becomes ferociously obvious, with immigration reform likely topping that list in recent years.

That’s thanks to former President Donald Trump, who not only campaigned heavily on his promise to build a wall on the border between the US and Mexico, but who also spent much of his first term in office striving endlessly toward a stricter enforcement of the immigration laws that this nation already had on her books.

Joe Biden, along with the rest of the Democratic Party, took the polar opposite stance of Trump, and they did on just about every subject imaginable.  This led to a massive influx of migrants headed toward the US as Biden began his time in the West Wing.

Now, in a move that appears to be designed to lure Trump to the public eye, Biden is suggesting that this humanitarian kerfuffle on the border is somehow Trump’s fault.

In an exclusive interview that aired Friday with “TODAY” show co-anchor Craig Melvin, Biden said his administration inherited “one god-awful mess at the border” from former President Donald Trump. He said it’s the result of “the failure to have a real transition — cooperation from the last administration, like every other administration has done.”

After the November election, Biden said that he had dispatched his transition team to meet with the officials leading the major departments across the government.

“The two departments that didn’t give us access to virtually anything were the immigration and the Defense Department,” said Biden, who added that his team didn’t know until he was sworn into office that Trump had fired many people from those departments and they were “understaffed considerably.”

There’s no reason to believe that Biden means what he says here; it is just far too absurd a suggestion to be taken seriously.  Instead, it seems more likely that this is nothing more than an agitating, offensive lure of a slur designed to enrage Donald Trump.

Biden’s handlers and PR team could see this as an opportunity to conjure a realtime reminder to the American people of the differences in leadership style between the two Commanders in Chief, should Trump lash out as he is prone to do.

All the world’s a stage, and Biden’s people certainly know it.

Friends of Giuliani Want Trump to Help Rudy with Insurmountable Legal Debt

That’s not good…

Rudy Giuliani

In the waning days of 2020, on through the first 3 weeks of this new year, Rudy Giuliani was Donald Trump’s ride or die.  His “BFF”, if you will. The former NYC Mayor was the attorney for Trump at the time, and was tasked with finding a way to prove that the 2020 election was “stolen” from Trump. Rudy hit a number of brick walls, litigiously, and apparently did so at great personal cost. Giuliani’s advisers are pleading with Trump’s team to dip into its $250 million campaign bank account and pay the attorney for the work he did to try to overturn the results of the 2020 election, according to a report from The New York Times. Giuliani’s team increased the pressure on Trump’s camp, the Times reported, after federal prosecutors executed a search warrant at the lawyer’s home and office as part of an investigation into his dealings with Ukraine. They are looking into whether Giuliani illegally lobbied the Trump administration on behalf of Ukrainian oligarchs, the same officials who were helping him search for dirt on Trump’s political foes, including then-Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden. Rudy and The Don had a bit of a falling out near the end of Trump’s first term, with the then-President allegedly infuriated over the inability of his longtime confidante to reverse course on the election.

Facebook Rules on Trump Ban in Major Free Speech Decision

This will haunt our nation for decades to come.

1984

The Trump presidency will undoubtedly go down in the history books as one of the most memorable of our lifetime, and there are repercussions still piling onto us today that could impact the way in which our nation operates for decades to come. Near the end of his first term, something previously unthinkable happen to Donald Trump:  He was banned from Twitter and Facebook outright, and arbitrarily. The two tech giants had decided that there was a real chance that Trump could or would incite violence around the nation, perhaps even via the infamous “storm is upon us” text that Qanon theorists repeatedly spoke of. Regardless of the reason, a sitting US President had just been censored by two incredibly powerful companies for reasons that they didn’t have to justify to anyone.  This was a terrifying adjustment to the way in which we think about free speech in America, and the struggle continues this week. Facebook was justified in its decision to suspend then-President Donald Trump after the Jan. 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol, the company’s Oversight Board said on Wednesday. That means the company does not have to reinstate Trump’s access to Facebook and Instagram immediately. But the panel said the company was wrong to impose an indefinite ban and said Facebook has six months to either restore Trump’s account, make his suspension permanent, or suspend him for a specific period of time. Scarier still:  A recent interview with Donald Trump was also removed from Facebook, with the social media magnates declaring that statements “in Donald Trump’s voice” would now be subject to such censorship.
