Not His Own, But Biden Still Hiring Family Members at White House

Biden said family members would not benefit from his presidency and would never work at the White House. Apparently, that was a lie.

You may recall during the 2020 campaign when Joe Biden came under pressure over his son Hunter that he said family members would not benefit from his presidency and would never work at the White House. Apparently ,that was a lie.

In February, Biden was asked if he had put any provisions in place to keep his family from becoming enriched or joining the government during his administration. He said that he intended to keep his family at arm’s length.

“We’re going to run this like the Obama-Biden administration,” Biden told People magazine. “No one in our family and extended family is going to be involved in any government undertaking or foreign policy. And nobody has an office in this place.”

A review of White House staffers, though, seems to show that Biden wasn’t exactly truthful with his claim that family members would not work at the White House. While he hasn’t brought in his own family to work in the Oval Office, the truth is, the White House is a family affair, anyway.

For instance, Biden appointed Antony Blinken as Secretary of State and Blinken’s wife, Evan Ryan, is the White House cabinet secretary.

It turns out, Ryan was also Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs in the State Department under Barack Obama. Blinken, of course, also worked in the Obama administration and acted as national security advisor to then-Vice President Joe Biden.

Then there is White House press secretary Jen Psaki. Here sister is also in the White House and now serves as a senior adviser for the Department of Health and Human Services.

Blinken and Psaki are not alone in having brought family into the administration. National security advisor Jake Sullivan, senior adviser Anita Dunn, counselor Steve Richetti, deputy chief of staff Bruce Reed and Presidential Personnel Office director Cathy Russell all have at least one relative employed by the administration, according to the New York Post.

So, contrary to Biden’s claim that the White House would not be used to enrich and empower family members, it has been used for just that purpose.

Gunman Bricked to Death After Opening Fire on Forth Worth Party

You don’t mess with Texas.

You know what they say:  Don’t mess with Texas. This is the sort of placed where the locals have no problem reminding you, and swiftly, that you’re not from around here.  They are fiercely independent Americans, and they enjoy their freedom in their own unique way. Texans always seem to get their way, and they certainly have been known to find a unique solution to their problems. This is as true as ever this week. A gunman who opened fire at a party early Monday in Texas, fatally shooting one person, died after attendees struck him with bricks, authorities said. The incident began around 1 a.m. in the backyard of a Fort Worth home when an attendee became angry and left, the police department said in a statement. The person, identified by a Fort Worth police spokesperson only as a man, returned with a second person and got into an argument with other partygoers. The man opened fire, striking one person and causing a non-life-threatening injury, the statement said. But then… When people at the party began chasing him, he opened fire and they threw landscaping bricks at him, the statement said. Two people were struck by gunfire, one of them fatally, police said. The second person was taken to a hospital with a non-life-threatening gunshot wound. The gunman was pronounced dead at the scene, and has yet to be publicly identified.

Swastika Found Engraved at State Department Draws Condemnation

The Secretary of State was LIVID.

There’s nothing funny about the Nazi regime, and everyone knows it, except for a certain breed of adolescent dolt who’s simply looking to appear edgy and dangerous as some hormonal ploy to attract a mate. These are the kids that would draw toothbrush mustaches on the faces in the magazines, or throw up a sig heil behind the teacher’s back for a laugh. But this phase almost always fades as the years climb on, and most of these young idiots looks back at themselves in a perpetual state of cringe. This leaves us to assume that anyone continuing to exude such Hitleresque nonsense into adulthood is doing so very purposefully, and not with the naïveté of their younger years. At the State Department, this reality is causing a bit of concern. A swastika carved into an elevator car has been discovered at the State Department in Washington—in a location within the building’s security perimeter. The elevator is close to the office of the special envoy charged with monitoring and opposing anti-semitism, Axios reports. Secretary of State Antony Blinken emailed all employees Tuesday about the discovery. Blinken was livid. “The hateful graffiti has been removed and this incident will be investigated,” he wrote. Blinken is the stepson of a Holocaust survivor, per the Washington Post, and has emphasized the threat of anti-semitism, which he wrote “isn’t a relic of the past.” Officials have said President Biden will nominate an ambassador-at-large to deal with the problem; the Jerusalem Post called for such a position in an editorial this month. Hate has been on the rise in America in recent years, as white supremacist groups continue to recruit and spread their message online, and then, often violently, in real life.
