Fred Weinberg: 3 Biden Disasters That Make Him Look Like an Absolute Amateur

Western Journal

I hate to have to call the president of the United States a moron, but, based on his actions since the inauguration, his speech on gun control, his blithe assumption that term limits could be imposed on the federal judiciary and his inability to do anything about the crisis he has imposed on the southern border, that seems to be the case.

Let’s start with gun control.

In the words of Republican Sen. John Kennedy of Louisiana, “In my judgment, we do not need more gun control, we need more idiot control. How do we do that? We have already tried, the Republicans have. Sen. [Chuck] Grassley, Sen. [Ted] Cruz had a bill to strengthen our national database. We regulate gun ownership in America.

“If you’re convicted of certain crimes, if you have a tendency to violence, if you’re mentally ill and you want to buy a gun, your name has to run through a database. The problem is that the database has huge holes in it. And many federal agencies and state agencies are very cavalier about sending in the names.

“Grassley and Cruz’s bill, which I support, would have tightened up the database and it would have cracked down on people who have guns who shouldn’t have guns. Do you know why the bill didn’t pass? Many of my Democratic colleagues filibustered it.”

Question: Do you think that the average street criminal buys his (or her) guns legally? That falls under the heading of, “But Achmed, we cannot do that in the United States … they have a law against that!”

According to a 2016 study by the Department of Justice (under the JoeBama administration), “An estimated 287,400 prisoners had possessed a firearm during their offense. Among these, more than half (56%) had either stolen it (6%), found it at the scene of the crime (7%), or obtained it off the street or from the underground market (43%). Most of the remainder (25%) had obtained it from a family member or friend, or as a gift. Seven percent had purchased it under their own name from a licensed firearm dealer.”

So, what background checks do is to stop … nothing!

And folks, only a moron thinks guns cause crime. If guns disappeared tomorrow, cars, knives and more creative weapons would take their place.

You cannot stop crime when you have George Soros bankrolling the election of district attorneys who don’t want to prosecute anyone. (See Los Angeles, Chicago, St. Louis, New York City and Portland, Oregon.) Crime and criminality are simply part of a free society. You can deter it and reduce it, but you cannot eliminate it. The alternative is China and Russia, where death is the deterrence.

Leftists like being soft on crime because it gives them an opportunity to grab power and keep us scared of our own shadows. Go spend some time in Pilsen or Canaryville in Chicago and you’ll instantly see what I mean. Or, better than that, watch “Chicago P.D.” and see art imitating life.

That Biden can be a very decent human being is occasionally flashed when he has to address something neutral that cannot be turned into a partisan event, such as the killing of Capitol Police officer Billy Evans. No guns, no support by the killer for President Trump, just a sad event. Biden’s eulogy came from his heart and was spot on.

He needs to escape his handlers more often.

Let’s talk about court packing and federal judge term limits.

It probably won’t happen because the “support” for it is coming from people who have no real influence among the voters.

As Biden himself once said, it’s a “bonehead” idea.

Finally, the southern border.

No amount of lipstick will turn that pig into “not a crisis.”

Enabling Mexican drug cartels to engage in human trafficking is the blackest mark on Biden’s very short presidential record.

If our president allows these things to continue, he is a moron.

If he takes some control of “his” administration, he still has a chance to salvage his place in history.

Texas House Speaker Issues Arrest Warrant for Dem Rep as He Flees to DC for Second Time

Republican Texas House Speaker Dade Phelan is seeking serious consequences for his Democratic colleagues who left the state to avoid key legislative work. Phelan has initiated a civil arrest warrant for Rep. Philip Cortez after Cortez flew back to Washington after briefly returning to Texas for talks regarding a Republican-supported election bill, according to The Washington Post. Speaker Dade Phelan signs civil arrest warrant for Texas House Democrat who returned to Washingtonhttps://t.co/waprrFq6tN — Midland Reporter-Telegram (@mwtnews) July 26, 2021 New: Here’s a copy of the civil arrest warrant for @CortezPhilip signed by @DadePhelan yesterday after he returned to DC. #txlege pic.twitter.com/oqbQtQ86vN — Brad Johnson (@bradj_TX) July 26, 2021 Two weeks ago, Texas House Democrats flew to D.C. in order to prevent a quorum necessary for the lawmaking body to debate and vote. The Democrats flew on a private charter jet maskless, and six of them later tested positive for coronavirus. Phelan said in a statement that Cortez “has irrevocably broken my trust and the trust of this chamber” and “represented to me and his fellow members that he wanted to work on policy and find solutions to bring his colleagues back to Texas,” according to The Texas Tribune, an online news outlet. But Cortez, whose district office is in San Antonio, insists that he flew back to Washington because the Republicans in Austin were being stubborn on the legislation — as if they were being the non-cooperative ones. “Last week I went back to Texas with a goal of improving the restrictive elections bill. After discussions with Republican leadership didn’t yield any substantive results, I have rejoined my Democratic colleagues in Washington D.C. to continue this fight on this front,” he wrote in a Twitter post published Sunday. Last week I went back to Texas with a goal of improving…

Restaurant Tapes Sign to Front Door: Proof of Being Unvaccinated Required for Entry

Western Journal

A restaurant in Huntington Beach, California, is trolling the fascists so hard, leftist Twitter is about to blow a gasket. As California businesses consider requiring proof of vaccination for entry, one rebellious eatery, Basilico’s Pasta e Vino, recently taped a sign to its door that reads “Proof of being unvaccinated required.” Underneath this warning is an image of a broken syringe and the declaration, “We have zero tolerance for treasonous, anti-American stupidity. Thank you for pondering.” Basilico’s has a history of thumbing its nose at California’s far-reaching coronavirus mandates. Last year, when the state shut down indoor dining, Basilico’s stayed open, the Los Angeles Times reported. Later, when the state issued a mask mandate, Basilico’s declared itself a mask-free zone and required patrons to remove their face coverings. The new sign is just the latest jab at the powers that be, and it is a hilarious one at that. It is clearly a gag, as it is impossible to prove one is not vaccinated, and an employee confirmed to the dismayed Times that the restaurant is not, in fact, checking anyone’s vaccination status. Of course, it was all too much for Twitter leftists, many of whom seem to be under the impression that the unvaccinated are keeling over and dying in the streets and that this novel inoculation is the only thing keeping the more enlightened Americans from doing so themselves. This restaurant down the street from me in Huntington Beach is asking that diners show proof they have **not** been vaccinated. Partisan politics has broken so many brains. Get me off this ride. pic.twitter.com/GSFVqNMiEX — Billy Binion (@billybinion) July 27, 2021 Good morning. Happy Tuesday. ICYMI “proof of being UNvaccinated” is actually a death certificate. And dead people don’t eat at Basilico’s Huntington Beach or any restaurants. Anti-American stupidity…
