Flashback: Joe Biden Vowed to Ban Sanctuary Cities During Second Run for POTUS In 2007

Changed his mind?

1988. 2008. And now, 2020. Former Vice President Joe Biden is attempting to become president of the United States for the third time. Back in 2007 at a New Hampshire primary debate, handsy Joe was asked about “sanctuary cities.”

He said he wouldn’t allow them.

It’s pretty convenient how often Democrats evolve on the issues, isn’t it? But who knows, maybe one day they’ll evolve into people who love their country. It’s possible!

Biden’s exchange with New England Cable News’s Alison King went as follows:

KING: I’d like to hear from Senator Biden, would you allow these cities to ignore the federal law? [Emphasis added]

BIDEN: The reason that cities ignore the federal law is the fact that there is no funding at the federal level to provide for the kind of enforcement at the federal level you need … Part of the problem is you have to have a federal government that can enforce laws. This administration’s been fundamentally derelict in not funding any of the requirements that are needed even to enforce the existing law… [Emphasis added]

KING: So Senator Biden, yes or no, would you allow those cities to ignore the federal law? [Emphasis added]

BIDEN: No. [Emphasis added]

With everything Joe has said over the years, how in the world is this man the Democrat frontrunner?

It’s almost baffling.

Almost.

The former VP can’t seem to escape his gaffe-prone ways, yet continues to remain in the public eye.

When it comes down to it and Joe goes head-to-head with President Trump in the 2020 general election, Biden stands an excellent chance of being a thrice failed candidate for POTUS.

Check out this recently unearthed clip of Biden sounding eerily similar to Trump when it comes to Mexico – and it’s not from that long ago.

LOOK:

A review of rhetoric from Joe Biden’s record on immigration. It included boasting about needing a 700 mile fence to stop “tons…tons…tons” of drugs from “corrupt Mexico” in 2006. Jailing employers who hire “illegals” and not allowing sanctuary cities.

Members of Biden’s 2020 presidential campaign are apparently physically blocking reporters from asking the former vice president any questions.

Sounds like a typical leftist move, doesn’t it?

From Free Beacon:

A freelance reporter covering Joe Biden’s presidential campaign launch says the campaign has gotten physical in its attempts to block the press from questioning the former vice president.

Marcus DiPaola, a videographer who was on the trail with Biden Wednesday night in Iowa, used his Twitter account to voice complaints from multiple members of the press regarding poor treatment from campaign staff, which was reportedly blocking reporters from asking questions and taking photographs of anyone who objected.

A reporter approached @JoeBiden to ask a question and a member of his staff told the reporter to leave, and when the reporter explained that they were just doing their job, the staffer said she was too. The staffer then took a photo of the reporter.

A different reporter just told me that yesterday a staff member physically put their body between the reporter and @JoeBiden. The reporter said they weren’t even that close and that there were several supporters between the reporter and Biden.

This second reporter tells me the staffer physically invaded their space to the point that the reporter could smell the staffer’s ponytail.

A THIRD reporter just told me that a staff member physically put their body between @JoeBiden and the reporter, moments ago at this rally in Des Moines.

This third reporter just told me that the @JoeBiden staffer blocked his camera shot by putting up her hands.

@JoeBiden staffers just tried to remove us from what appears to be a public lot, said we could not ask questions.

While getting the video I just shot of Biden calling for Barr to resign, a @JoeBiden staffer physically placed her body between me and the candidate, causing me to bump into her.

I cannot express how difficult it was to get this video. @JoeBiden staff moved his motorcade THREE TIMES to avoid us, and he eventually went through what appeared to be a TUNNEL to a nearby Jimmy John’s to dodge our questions.

Save conservative media!

Published

on

The suspect involved in the killing of three individuals and the wounding of several others at Naval Air Station Pensacola was apparently a Saudi Arabian aviation student. Authorities investigating the shooting that occurred on Friday are working to find out if the incident is terrorism-related. The suspect, as of this writing, has not yet been named, though it is known this individual was here in the United States to receive flight training. Here’s more from Washington Examiner: The U.S. Navy confirmed that the gunman and two other people were killed in the mass shooting, which took place in one of the base’s classrooms. Eight people were transported to the hospital where an additional victim died. Two of those wounded in the shooting were deputies who engaged in a shootout with the man. One was shot in the arm and another in the knee but both are expected to survive. The gunman was killed shortly before 8 a.m. by other responding law enforcement officers. More than 23,000 military and civilian personnel work at NAS Pensacola. It’s considered one of America’s oldest stations and is known to be the home of the well known Blue Angels flight demonstration team.

Hungarian Officials Says Impeachment Witness George Kent Not Credible. ‘I Was There, He Was Not.’

Published

on

A top Hungarian official recently stated that George Kent is not a credible witness for the impeachment proceedings against President Trump, poking fun at his allegations that Prime Minister Viktor Orban encouraged the president to view Ukraine negatively. Here’s more from Washington Examiner: “This is a great honor for us, to be honest, that we were portrayed as a central European country which can change the position of the president of the United States,” Hungarian Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto joked in an interview with the Washington Examiner on the sidelines of the NATO Leaders’ Meeting. “It can be taken as an honor. Well, I’m afraid it has distance from reality, to be honest.” Orban emerged as an unlikely player in the Ukraine impeachment controversy in October, when a senior State Department official testified that the Hungarian leader had contributed to Trump’s distaste for Ukraine. George Kent, one of the State Department’s top officials for Europe, told lawmakers that Orban echoed Russian President Vladimir Putin in portraying Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky as in a “thrall” of corruption. “He’s not that credible in this regard,” Szijjarto said of Kent, whom he noted did not attend Orban’s May 13 meeting with Trump. “Simply because he was not there. I was there, he was not there.” “Viktor Orban’s beef with Ukraine is derived in part [from] his vision, in my opinion, of a greater Hungary. This issue of greater Hungary is at the top of Orban’s agenda. And so he has picked this particular issue and, for instance, blocked all meetings in NATO with Ukraine at the ministerial level or above because of this particular issue. So, his animus towards Ukraine is well-known, documented, and has lasted now two years,” Kent continued. Kent then went on to say in his testimony that the Hungarian…
