Biden Edgy After Putin Summit, Snaps at CNN Reporter

The President later apologized.

Wednesday marked a major milestone in the young Biden presidency, as the Commander in Chief had his first face-to-face pow-wow with Russian President Vladimir Putin, in the apropos nation of Switzerland.

The White House and the Kremlin had long been locked in what looked like the first inklings of a new Cold War, as cyber attacks and psychological warfare operations began to ratchet up.  This meeting needed to mean something, and that can be quite the task when Putin is involved.

So, of course, there were some Kremlin-arranged fireworks to kick the day off, as the US press was seen being manhandled at the beginning of the meeting, within sight of President Biden.  It would not be alarming to find out that this was a premeditated action that Putin was well aware would be coming.

In their respective remarks at the conclusion of the summit, both leaders seemed optimistic about the results that they’d reached, but US President Biden was undeniably a bit tense during his post-Putin presser.

President Joe Biden snapped at CNN reporter Kaitlan Collins on Wednesday, at a press conference following his meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

As Biden began leaving the summit, Collins asked the president how he was confident that Russian President Vladimir Putin would change his behavior.

“I’m not confident that he will change his behavior. What the hell? What do you do all the time?” Biden snapped. “When did I say I was confident?”

Collins replied that Biden had said he would know in three to six months whether the meeting was a success.

“What I said was, what will change their behavior is if the rest of the world reacts to them and it diminishes their standing in the world,” Biden said. “I’m not confident of anything; I’m just stating the facts.”

It continued…

Collins noted Putin’s behavior did not change after meeting with Biden, saying, “How does that account to a constructive meeting as President Putin framed it?”

“If you don’t understand that, you’re in the wrong business,” Biden replied before walking away from the press conference.

Biden would go on to apologize to Collins, referring to his outburst as a “wise guy” answer.

Legendary Guitarist Set to Boycott Venues Requiring Vaccine Proof

WOW!

With nearly half of Americans now fully vaccinated against COVID-19, the Biden administration has hit a wall.  The folks who are left unvaccinated are, by and large, abstaining by their own decision.  They don’t want a vaccine, and they don’t believe that the federal government has any right to tell them otherwise. But some private companies have begun suggesting that they may institute new regulations that would require customers or users to prove that they’ve been vaccinated in order to interact with them.  This could include some convert venues requiring that ticket holders can prove their vaccine status before seeing their favorite musical acts once they hit the road again. Legendary blues guitarist Eric Clapton isn’t into it.  At all. Eric Clapton has said he will not perform at any venues that require attendees to prove that they have received their full vaccination from the coronavirus. The musician and outspoken vaccine skeptic issued a statement that was highly critical of U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s announcement that vaccine passes would be required to enter nightclubs and other live performance venues in light of increasing coronavirus cases. The “Wonderful Tonight” singer issued a statement on the Telegram account of film producer and architect Robin Monotti, a known COVID-19 vaccination skeptic as well. In it, he issued a direct response to Johnson’s announcement and called the situation for those who do not wish to get the vaccine discriminatory. “Slow hand” got right to the point. “Following the PM’s announcement on Monday the 19th of July 2021 I feel honor-bound to make an announcement of my own,” Clapton said. “I wish to say that I will not perform on any stage where there is a discriminated audience present. Unless there is provision made for all people to attend, I reserve the right to cancel…

Tucker Carlson

It is well understood that passion is a large part of the punditry game.  Human beings want to know that the person delivering their news is invested in the story, (for some reason), and the primetime players are all very aware of this fact. But there are times in which the rabbit hole that they’re chasing stories down becomes too dark, too cavernous for even the most skilled orator, or the fastest on-their-feet thinkers that we have. Sometimes things go a little far in the mainstream media, and the nation at large leers in to rebuke the extremes. Tucker Carlson may very well be having one of these moments. Fox News’ Tucker Carlson sparked outcry Wednesday night when he called Black Capitol police officer Harry Dunn an “angry left-wing political activist.” “On Tuesday, [House Speaker Nancy] Pelosi will call on police officer Harry Dunn. Dunn will pretend to speak for the country’s law enforcement community, but it turns out Dunn has very little in common with your average cop. Dunn is an angry, left-wing political activist,” said Carlson, referring to Dunn’s forthcoming testimony in front of the Congressional committee converged to investigate the deadly Jan. 6 riot. He pointed to social media posts Dunn, who is Black, has made about racism before. The backlash came swiftly. Dunn’s lawyers, David Laufman and Mark Zaid, released a statementWednesday night that read, “Tonight Fox News allowed its host Tucker Carlson, who has not served a day in uniform, whether military or law enforcement, to criticize the heroism and service of African-American U.S. Capitol Police Officer Harry Dunn. Our client has served 13 years in law enforcement and on January 6, 2021, fought against an insurrectionist violent crowd — no doubt many of them Carlson’s supporters — to protect the lives of our elected officials, including…
