Joe Biden Quits On New Hampshire Before Polls Close; Heads Off To South Carolina

Published

on

Former Vice President Joe Biden is not having a whole lot of success with his current presidential campaign, having already lost Iowa and now resigning himself to defeat in New Hampshire before the polls even close.

In fact, Biden has blown off his own election night event in the state, opting to head off to South Carolina and try rallying some support ahead of the primary.

Here’s more from the Washington Examiner:

Biden’s campaign on Tuesday morning announced he would be skipping his final stop in New Hampshire, set to take place in Nashua after polls close at 8 p.m. EST, and will instead head to Columbia, South Carolina, to join key supporter Louisiana Rep. Cedric Richmond for a South Carolina launch party.

“Look, we got a lot of good friends here in New Hampshire, but this race ain’t over until you’ve got a significant portion of the electorate that haven’t voted yet,” he told reporters Tuesday.

The former vice president, 77, indicated Monday on the campaign trail that he would visit the first-in-the-South state before traveling to Nevada for the first-in-the-West caucuses on Feb. 22.

“We just talked to the folks down South Carolina; they’re pretty excited. So we are going there. Going to stop there probably on the way to Nevada,” he said.

South Carolina’s primary is due to be held on February 29, which comes a week after the third contest. Biden appears to be quite anxious over the so-called firewall which supposedly, according to his campaign, keeps them in the race even after poor results in Iowa and New Hampshire.

Currently, Biden has a 12.5 percentage point lead in South Carolina, but that is pretty low compared to what he had in polls last summer. Could we really be heading for a Sanders or Buttigieg face-off against President Trump this year?

Before, I would’ve said no way, but now, it’s really looking like that’s an actual possibility.

Biden Administration Reveal Unwieldy Goal for Greenhouse Emissions

Is this The Green New Deal decentralized?

Published

on

As the White House returned to Democratic control in the early days of 2021, there was a real hope among those on the left side of the aisle that this would bring about a new prioritization of climate issues, and possibly even the “Green New Deal”. That plan, which was buoyed by the involvement of social media maven and Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, was quickly labeled a deal-breaker by Republicans, and any mention of the Green New Deal would bring with it a great deal of political gravity. So, instead of pushing forward under the banner of that now-tainted name, President Joe Biden is simply decentralizing the plan and pulling several different climate levers at once. President Joe Biden is pledging to reduce U.S. greenhouse gas emissions by 50% to 52% by 2030, in the latest push by the administration to aggressively combat climate change. The target, announced Thursday, more than doubles the country’s prior commitment under the 2015 Paris climate agreement, when the Obama administration set out to cut emissions 26% to 28% below 2005 levels by 2025. The U.S. is currently not yet halfway to meeting that goal. Biden’s pledge on Earth Day is in line with what environmental groups and hundreds of executives at major companies have pushed for. The president announce the target at the closely watched global leaders’ climate summit on Thursday, during which he hopes to urge global cooperation to address the climate crisis. Make no mistake about it:  This is still the Green New Deal…the left just isn’t brave enough to call it that.

Capitol Riot Investigation: Official Commanded Officer to Target Anti-Trump Individuals

The complex investigation into the Capitol riots continues to surprise us.

Published

There is still a great deal that we don’t know about the events of January 6th, as an enormous investigation into the incident continues to uncover terrifying new angles in the case. The FBI has a complex and gargantuan task ahead of them, as they attempt to separate the wheat from the chaff. Thousands of hours of social media must be pored over still, and there are undoubtedly still arrests yet to be made.  Then will come the trials, which could, in turn, ignite new probes and arrests still. One of the most worrisome parts of the probe has come at the expense of the Capitol Police, who were seen on camera clearly giving a wide berth to a deadly mob.  Some officers were even seen opening barricades for the berserkers, while others took selfies with them. Now, an unbelievable bit of audio recorded during the attack is raising major concerns. A Capitol Police official radioed units outside of the building on the morning of Jan. 6 and told them only to scout for anti-Trump troublemakers — not pro-Trump protesters, according to Rep. Zoe Lofgren, who described what she said were details of an internal investigation conducted in the aftermath of the mob attack. Lofgren (D-Calif.) revealed the finding while she questioned Capitol Police Inspector General Michael Bolton, who appeared before the House Administration Committee Wednesday to testify about security failures that precipitated the Jan. 6 attack. Lofgren, who chairs the panel, described the findings as she asked him whether he had read the internal investigation reports. Lofgren said the department’s Office of Professional Responsibility was reviewing information that a radio transmission to “all outside units’ attention” that they should not be “looking for any pro-Trump in the crowd,” according to Lofgren. She added they were “only looking for any anti-Trump.” There…
