Biden's Brain Breaks, He Misquotes Declaration of Independence Then Forgets the Rest

Western Journal

President Joe Biden’s brain failed him Wednesday during his latest attempt to quote the Declaration of Independence, although this time it occurred as Biden postured to reporters about how tough he was during an earlier meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Biden sat down with Putin for several hours in Geneva on Wednesday for a much-anticipated meeting of the two leaders. Confidence in Biden’s ability to go toe-to-toe with the Russian leader dropped significantly when it was announced Biden would not participate in a joint media briefing with the former KGB agent following the talks.

But at his own briefing, Biden portrayed the meeting as having been one where he talked tough and Putin listened.

Do you think the president spoke with vigor and tenacity during the meeting? If he did, he was spent by the time it was over.

Biden again gaffed during his solo media briefing: He again couldn’t remember the words to the Declaration of Independence, a document he has struggled at length to recall since last year.



Biden said he told Putin that “no president of the United States could keep faith with the American people if they did not speak out to defend our democratic values, to stand up for the universal and fundamental freedoms that all men and women have, in our view.”

“That’s just part of the DNA of our country, so human rights is gonna always be on the table, I told him. … It’s about who we are. How could I be the president of the United States of America and not speak out against the violation of human rights?” the president said.

“I told him that unlike other countries, including Russia, we’re uniquely a product of an idea. You’ve heard me say this before, again and again, but I’m gonna keep saying it. What’s that idea? We don’t derive our rights from the government. We possess them because we’re born. Period. And we yield them to a government.”

Biden then attempted to invoke the Declaration of Independence but failed as he’s done before, while also divulging that he criticized his own country while sitting with a man whose country has never once come close to placing value in human life.

“So at the forum, I pointed out to him … I will continue to raise issues of fundamental human rights,” he said. “Because that’s what we are, that’s who we are.

“The idea is, we hold these truths self-evident, that all men and women — we haven’t lived up to it completely, but we’ve always widened the arch of commitment.”

The line Biden was looking for was, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

It eluded him on Wednesday in Geneva, just as it did in March 2020 during a speech on Super Tuesday.

“We hold these truths to be self-evident,” he said after series of surprising victories in the Democratic primary. “All men and women created by the go — you know the, you know, the thing.”

The thing, yes. That “thing” is that all men and women were created by God and that their rights to life and liberty are in fact inalienable. Those rights are not a gift from the government but are divine.

Do you think Biden made that much clear to Putin without the use of flashcards, or without pivoting before conveying a lucid point to a tyrant about the values Americans hold so dear?

We can only hope so. The reality is, we don’t know what happened behind those closed doors in Switzerland.

We can only imagine.

Family Escapes Through 2nd-Story Window During Armed Standoff After Suspect Barricades Door: Report

Western Journal

On July 25, in Auburn, Alabama, a man reportedly put his family, his neighborhood, first responders and himself in a very dangerous position. Calls came into the Auburn Police District around 7:00 p.m. reporting a domestic violence incident in the Camden Ridge Subdivision. When police arrived, the man reportedly began firing at them with a handgun. Police fired back, and the man retreated into the home, where he also had his family trapped in a room. Thanks to the police and fire department coming together and working smarter instead of harder, the situation was resolved without injury to the family members trapped upstairs. It was firefighter Andrew Kiser, Chief of Police Cedric Anderson and Shift Supervisor Lt. Cody Hill who were responsible for carrying out the daring rescue that helped bring the threat to an end. While the shooter refused to exit the house, the men carried a ladder to the house and set it up to reach one of the second-story windows, where they learned the man’s family had been trapped. While Anderson held the ladder steady, Hill climbed the ladder and Kiser assisted the family as they climbed out of the window. With the family out of the way, Lee County SWAT was able to enter the house and capture the suspect. He was taken to Baptist Medical Center South after he was found to have sustained what appeared to be a gunshot wound. “Auburn PD Alerts: Heavy Police Activity in the Camden Ridge Subdivision, in the area of Wedgewood Ct.,” a public safety alert for the area read, according to WRBL-TV. “The scene is secure at this time, NO ONGOING THREAT.” Auburn Assistant Police Chief Clarence Stewart praised the efforts of all involved, highlighting how each group present played an important role in…

After Receiving Call About Blazing Attic Fire, Police Rescue Man Trapped Inside Smoke-Filled Bedroom

A family in Marlboro Township, New Jersey, woke up just before midnight on Sunday and sensed something was wrong. They called 911 at around 11:38 p.m., reporting a “possible fire at the residence,” according to The Journal NJ. Officers Ryan Anzalone, Donna Gonzalez, Michael Morgante and Colin Murray with the Marlboro Township Police Department were first on the scene and quickly assessed the situation. They found smoke pouring out of the attic, but were relieved to see the family appeared to have exited the home. After a short time, though, the family realized one of their members was not with them, and was likely still trapped inside on the second floor. Gonzalez and Anzalone charged in and found the man, as described, in a bedroom on the second floor. By the time they got there, the room was “completely filled with smoke,” but they managed to rescue the resident. The fire department had a difficult time accessing the home due to the long, narrow driveway and a large landscaping rock. “While enroute Chief 2-66 was advised of heavy smoke from the attic,” the Robertsville Volunteer Fire Co. #1 posted on Facebook. “At the time the mutual aid response plan was put in place and the box alarm was requested to bring in initial assistance.” “Upon the arrival of 2-66 Chief advised the house was located down a 180 foot narrow driveway. Once engine 2-75 arrived there was trouble accessing the house due to a large ornamental boulder and trees. Members of the engine and police moved the 400lb boulder so the engine could get to the house and attack the fire. “As the incident progressed, the second alarm mutual aid plan was requested for this deep seated, hard to access attic fire.” The two officers who…
