‘Brood X’ Attacks Biden, White House Press Corps, Delaying Flight

No, this is not some new sect of Antifa.

Brood X:  While this may sound like some offshoot of Antifa’s “Black Bloc” anarchists, a millennial-founded Russian hacking group, or at the very least some sort of underground punk rock band, the phrase itself has a much more mundane origin.

Brood X refers to the largest population of cyclical cicadas in North America, and 2021 just so happens to be the year that these strange, flying insects will emerge from their nearly two decades-long slumber to mature, mate, and die.

During this frenzy of activity, cicadas can be downright annoying.  They’re loud, they’re large, and they don’t really seem to care about much other than their mating mission.

The White House press charter plane scheduled to leave Washington on Tuesday evening ahead of Joe Biden’s first trip abroad as president was delayed by cicadas, the noisy insects that have emerged after their nearly two decades of slumber.

The chartered plane was scheduled to depart around 9 p.m. ET, but a new plane had to be dispatched to Dulles International Airport after airline officials informed White House travel aides that cicadas had invaded exterior sections of the plane late Tuesday afternoon.

The flight left early Wednesday morning, more than six and a half hours behind schedule.

Even the Commander in Chief found himself the target of a member of Brood X.

Brood X’s arrival has provided plenty of strange news over the course of the last few weeks, including an FDA warning not to eat the insects…only if you’re allergic to seafood.

Biden to Tackle Gun Violence with Summer Camps and Jobs

This is all just another plug for the American Rescue Plan.

Published

During the presidency of Donald Trump, many of his supporters were sure that the Commander in Chief was fighting a barely-secret war against a “deep state” of establishment politicians whose goal was to keep the status quo chugging along at all costs, enriching themselves in the process. And, given that Trump had to work in the shadows to accomplish this, many began using the term “4D chess” to describe his fight. Any time that The Don made a move that seemed a bit out of character, many believed that this was a subterranean attempt at stealing power from the deep state that only Trump could quite understand. Now, in a far more bizarre set of moves, it appears as thought the Biden administration is trying to play something like 7 or 8D chess when they are only truly qualified to handle tic-tac-toe. First, they insist that “climate change” is a “root cause” of illegal immigration, which is a dumbfounding declaration in and of its own right. Now they are aiming to tackle gun violence with summer camp. President Joe Biden on Wednesday will lay out his plan for addressing the surge in gun violence that has impacted cities around the country in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic. The president’s strategy will address five key areas: stemming the flow of firearms used to commit violence; providing law enforcement with more resources; investing in community violence interventions; expanding summer programs and employment opportunities, especially for young people; and helping formerly incarcerated people re-enter their communities. As part of Biden’s plan, the Treasury Department will issue new guidelines Wednesday making clear that communities experiencing a surge in gun violence as a result of the pandemic can use the $350 billion in state and local funding included in the American Rescue Plan to…

ABOUT TIME: Kamala Harris Makes Much-Anticipated Travel Plans

It only took three months!

It has taken three months, but our Vice President is finally about to tackle the border crisis head on. Sure, Kamala Harris has visited Guatemala, but, ask anyone involved in that debacle and you’re unlikely to find a glowing review of her diplomacy there.  In fact, after Harris left, the President of that nation told the world that the whole immigration crisis is Joe Biden’s fault anyway. Now, after incessant criticism from the mainstream media, Harris will finally be heading to the border. Vice President Kamala Harris is set to visit the U.S.-Mexico border on Friday, the White House confirmed, amid mounting criticism from Republicans for not yet doing so, following her appointment by President Biden to handle the “root causes” of migration. Harris is set to visit El Paso, Texas, with Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas. Harris has come under heavy criticism from Republicans and some Democrats for the way she has handled the role since being appointed to it 91 days ago. While the White House has emphasized she is tasked with the “root causes” of the border crisis, Republicans have criticized her repeatedly for not having visited the border at all – with former Trump officials saying she needs to go to the border in order to be able to conduct the talks effectively. Harris has thus far opted to work on the “root causes” of illegal immigration, stating that she believes “climate change” to be a major factor; a proclamation that has enthused the radical leftists of the Democratic Party.
