Former Vice President Joe Biden is in.

After all this time of thinking about it, Joe is finally prepared to declare a bid for the presidency.

It looks like Thursday is the day he has planned to make the announcement.

Here’s what’s up, via NBC News:

Former Vice President Joe Biden will announce his presidential bid Thursday morning with an online video, two sources close to Biden with direct knowledge of the planning confirmed to NBC News.

Biden will then appear in Pittsburgh on Monday for an event at a local union hall, NBC News has learned. Biden will then embark on a tour of the four early voting states — Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina and Nevada — in the following weeks.

The former vice president finds himself atop of many early primary polls. The RealClearPolitics polling average has him at just above 29 percent, with Vermont independent Sen. Bernie Sanders in second place at about 22 percent.

Will Democrats prefer to see Trump versus Biden? Will they go for Trump versus Democrat Socialist Bernie Sanders?

Time will tell, but we’ll know for certain in the near future.

Former Saturday Night Live star Jason Sudeikis returned to the show this past weekend to reprise his role as former Vice President Joe Biden.

Surprisingly, the long-running sketch series lambasted “creepy” Joe given all the headlines he has made in recent days due to his touchy-feely ways.

The skit was actually pretty funny.

WATCH:

Biden was recently in Germany. He decided to bash America because apparently doing so on U.S. soil just isn’t enough.

According to Biden, the United States is “an embarrassment.”

Even if he truly feels this way, admitting it to foreigners is a dirty move.

WATCH:

Hasn’t anyone told Joe that the economy is thriving, there’s no risk of nuclear war with North Korea, and that minority unemployment is at record lows?

That’s allllll because of President Trump and Republican policies, Joe.

Barack Obama’s VP sure seems to want to run for president against Donald Trump in 2020. He just hasn’t made it completely official yet.

According to Biden, though, he’s the “most qualified person in the country to be president.”

Vladimir Putin Begins Mass Production of Unstoppable Nuclear Rockets

These missiles are little more than overcompensation, similar to when men with little confidence by a sports car to show off.

Published

In a move that reeks of overcompensation in the same way that a loud exhaust on a 4-cylinder car does, Russian President Dictator Vladimir Putin is now ramping up production on a bit of nuclear overkill meant to have the rest of the world shaking in their boots.

Putin, after being caught red-handed attempting, (and failing), to influence American politics via some sort of army of cyber-trolls, is now pouring Russian resources into amassing a cadre of “unstoppable” hypersonic missiles.

MASS production of Russia’s terrifying Zircon hypersonic missile has begun, as tensions with the West mount.

The Kremlin boasts that the 6670mph weapon – which carries a conventional or nuclear warhead – is “unstoppable”.

The go-ahead for full-scale production of Zircon at a top-secret plant near Moscow follows recent successful tests of the missile.

Most recently, there was a successful test of the hypersonic missile from a frigate in the White Sea on 18 November.

Most recently, there was a successful test of the hypersonic missile from a frigate in the White Sea on 18 November. A month earlier the Zircon was fired from a submarine for the first time. Vladimir Putin has ordered the Zircon missile to be deployed next year by the Russian Navy boasting that it is “truly unparalleled … in the world”. And while this all may sound very frightening, the move is likely just another bit of puffery from Putin. The US and Russia have long had a policy of “mutually assured destruction”, in which the two nations would reciprocate any nuclear strike against them with a full emptying of their entire nuclear arsenal.  Even if Putin managed to get one of these “unstoppable” devices airborne in the direction of the United States, it would be a death sentence for everyone from Moscow to Mongolia.

Looting Flash Mobs Turn Deadly as Security Guard Shot Dead

When will it end?!

Published

on

Despite what The Hallmark Channel would like you to believe about the holiday season, it is far more often true that the weeks in between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day bring out the worst in us.

You see, the holidays are extremely stressful when it comes down to it.  There are immense social and familial pressures to succeed, and to do so in a spectacular fashion.  The purse strings tighten in one aspect of our lives to afford something special in other aspects, and this shuffling can cause a great deal of tumult.  For those already living paycheck to paycheck, these expectations can be absolutely heartbreaking.

And, with the Biden administration’s unwillingness to get inflation under control, some are even turning to flash mobs of crime in an attempt to offset these stressors.

In suburban Minneapolis, a large group of at least 30 people targeted a Best Buy in Burnsville, while a group of 10-12 people, including juveniles, targeted another Best Buy in Maplewood. No one has been arrested in connection to the incidents as of Saturday and there are no estimates on how much merchandise was stolen.

“Across the board, retailers are getting more concerned with this growing trend. … It is definitely a tough problem to solve, given the organized nature and number of people involved in many of the incidents,” Chris Walton, a former Target executive who co-leads retail blog and podcast Omni Talk, said of the incidents, according to Star Tribune.

This week, one of these herd-looting incidents turned deadly.

The most tragic incident unfolded in California, when an Oakland security guard was fatally shot during an armed robbery while protecting a news crew covering a previous smash-and-grab theft.

“It is with the deepest sadness that I let you know security guard Kevin Nishita has passed away,” said Mark Neerman, vice president of news and news director at KPIX. “He died protecting one of our own, a colleague reporting on the very violence that took his life. I know you join me in sending condolences to his family and in sending thanks to Kevin for standing up for us all.”

Compounding the issue are lackadaisical corporate policies on theft that have forbidden store employees from confronting shoplifters, with larger companies simply comparing the cost of the lost merchandise against the cost of a settlement to those employees who may be injured, (or worse), during such incidents.
