Photos: Ice Cream-Eating Biden Trolled by Anonymous Billboard Buyer for His Afghanistan Failure

Western Journal

Published

on

This week, a billboard in Wilmington, North Carolina, went viral after displaying images that brutally mocked President Joe Biden and his horrifically bad management of the Afghanistan crisis.

Two spots on the rotating billboard featured memes, one of which showed Biden happily eating an ice cream cone as a Chinook helicopter airlifted American personnel from the Kabul embassy in the background. The other showed our commander-in-chief peeking through blinds, indicating he is hiding from what is now easily the lowest of the low points of his presidency so far.

Local news outlet WECT-TV confirmed that the billboards were not hacked but paid for by an undisclosed buyer.

WECT hilariously reported, “What the two images are trying to convey is not clear.” In reality, it doesn’t take any kind of analytical genius to see that the message was as clear as crystal: Biden is a joke, and he has been twiddling his thumbs and hiding from his failure as Kabul descends into chaos with thousands of Americans still stuck there.

Photos of the billboard spots quickly went viral and conservative Twitter was absolutely delighted:

The billboard is located on the corner of Market Street and Eastwood Road, a busy intersection through which over 65,000 vehicles pass each day, according to Biz Pac Review, which makes it the second busiest in the city.

BPR noted that although former President Donald Trump won New Hanover County, where Wilmington is located, by over 4,000 votes in 2016, Biden won it in 2020 by just 2,400 votes. Wilmington has a population of nearly 120,200.

Tedder Outdoor Media, which owns the billboard, confirmed to WECT that the spots were purchased but declined to provide details as to who paid for them, citing privacy concerns. The company has sold spots to groups from both sides of the political spectrum, including radical animal rights group PETA.

Owner Donald Tedder told the outlet that he would have displayed boards that praised the president and that this was simply another business transaction for him. Fair enough!

The Biden-bashing images first appeared as POTUS was conducting what would turn out to be ill-fated damage control before the American public.

Originally on vacation when Kabul fell, the president had promised that prior to Sunday’s siege of the Afghan capital, we would not see helicopters airlifting personnel from the U.S. embassy as we did when Saigon fell — when that is exactly what ended up happening, with eerie similarity to 1975’s disaster.

He watched the scramble to evacuate Americans from Taliban-overridden Kabul from Camp David on Sunday, before returning to Washington, D.C., on Monday to tell the public that while “the buck” stopped with him, what happened was also totally the fault of the Afghan military and also Trump (because of course it was).

Then, later in the week, he angrily refuted questions about desperate Afghans clinging to and falling off military planes that had taken off from the Kabul airport by saying “that was four days — five days ago!”

It had been two days, as it happened, but his response was as clueless as it was callous regardless of when the heartbreaking scene took place.

On Friday, things didn’t get any better as Biden once again addressed the nation, which he told that Americans were not having any problem getting to the airport and that his administration was in “constant contact” with the Taliban terrorists who are now calling the shots, as though they were ally forces working toward the same end.

Comments from his own Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin and multiple reporters staunchly refuted this bald-faced lie, pointing to multiple instances of Americans being beaten by Taliban fighters when they tried to access the airport.

Is Joe Biden a complete failure as president?

Meanwhile, European forces are swiftly and tactfully entering Taliban-controlled zones to retrieve their personnel — something that the U.S. military is beyond capable of doing, and yet for some reason, the Biden administration continues to insist cannot easily be done.

I’m not really sure why anyone would be confused about the message behind this billboard.

Since entering office, Biden has done nothing but wander around cluelessly, read off pre-prepared comments, worry about getting in trouble with his own staffers and spout off whatever nonsense comes into his head when confronted with the media.

The same media, which was more than happy to fawn over his consumption of ice cream a few short months ago, hasn’t even been able to hold back this time around.

The American people are angry, the Afghanistan crisis is a mess that will forever blacken Biden’s name and our country has no leader.

Marine Vet Gets Award for Stopping Robbery, But His Anti-Biden Shirt Steals the Show

Western Journal

Published

on

U.S. Marine veteran James Kilcer, who thwarted an attempted robbery in an Arizona convenience store last week, received an award Tuesday from the Yuma County Sheriff’s Office while wearing a “Let’s Go Brandon” T-shirt.

He was also sporting a red “Make America Great Again” hat, apparently in support of former President Donald Trump.

Sheriff Leon Wilmot presented Kilcer with the YCSO Citizen’s Valor Award, “For extraordinary heroism and exceptional courage while voluntarily coming to the aid of another citizen during an incident involving criminal activity at extreme, life threatening, personal risk in an attempt to save or protect human life,” the sheriff’s office said in a news release.

“The YCSO Citizen’s Valor Award is the highest award for citizens whose actions warrant recognition.”

Surveillance video of Kilcer stopping the robbery at the Chevron convenience store early in the morning on Oct. 20 went viral.

The now-U.S. Army Yuma Proving Ground employee had just purchased some Gatorades and other items and was talking to the clerk when the suspects came in, Kilcer told the Defense Visual Information Distribution Service.

“I heard the door start opening forcefully and my ‘Spidey senses’ or whatever kind of tingling, and I turn around and saw they were coming in real quick,” he said.

The veteran turned around and his military training kicked in as he sought to disarm the robber.

“I was ready: I saw it coming,” Kilcer said. “The minute my hands closed around it, I never lost contact with the gun. And I pulled him down.”

He held the suspect down until law enforcement arrived.

The person arrested was a 14-year-old juvenile who has now been charged with one count of armed robbery and one count of aggravated assault.

“Kilcer served as a tactical air operations technician in the Marine Corps and was deployed to Afghanistan during his time in the military. He credits his actions to his Marine Corps basic training and mindset,” DVIDS reported.

“I guess I was just in the right place at the right time,’’ Kilcer said. “I was doing what needed to be done.”

While appearing on Fox News on Friday, the Arizonan also waded into the political when he ended the segment, saying with a smile to host Dana Perino, “And remember, [Jeffrey] Epstein didn’t kill himself.”

“OK, got it,” said Perino, who laughed and added, “Very clever.”

Surgeon Fired After Speaking Against School Mask Mandate: ‘Professionals Such as Myself Are Being Silenced’

Western Journal

Published

on

A Minnesota doctor is paying the price for standing up to authority.

On Oct. 11, Dr. Jeffrey Horak told the Fergus Falls school board that parents, not school officials, should be in charge of deciding whether their children wear masks to school, according to Fox News.

Nine days later the surgeon was informed by Lake Region Healthcare, a hospital in Fergus Falls, that he could either resign or be fired.

At the meeting, the school board decided to put in place a mask mandate for elementary school students as a two-week experiment, according to KFGO-FM.

Horak spoke out against the mandate.

“I’m used to wearing masks. I’m not trying to do it while I’m running or playing in the gym or all that other stuff. These masks, you want to stop the virus. The example of it is like trying to stop a mosquito with a chain-link fence, good luck,” he said, according to KFGO-FM.

Horak said parents are the ones who should be making decisions about masks.

“Who does God put in charge of these kids? Their parents. God gave each one of these kids … to their parents, and they speak for them. They may be wrong, they may be dumb, they may be perfect in their decisions. But it’s still their responsibility. It’s not yours. God gave it to them. Honor their wishes, either side of the fence,” he said.

Horak said he was then told his “views were no longer congruent with that of Lake Region Healthcare” and he had to choice to quit or be fired, Fox reported.

“We live in America where freedoms are held close. I am a man who believes individuals have the right to do their research and decide what is best for them and their children when it comes to their health. I don’t believe governments or institutions should dictate that,” Horak said in a post-dismissal statement published by KVRR-TV.

In his statement, Horak said there were many possible reasons for his termination, adding “perhaps my termination is because I was empowering the parents.”

Dr. Greg Smith, the president of the Medical Group Board for the Lake Region Medical Group, said the board made the “decision to discontinue Dr. Jeff Horak’s employment contract after a thorough review process,” according to a statement given to Fox.

“The reasons for Dr. Horak’s separation are a confidential matter,” Smith said. “To be clear, this was a decision that was made by Dr. Horak’s peers who serve on the Medical Group Board, not by Lake Region Healthcare, the community-based hospital where Dr. Horak practiced General Surgery.”

Local residents rallied on behalf of Horak.

“This isn’t a conservative vs. liberal, or vaxed vs. unvaxed, or mask vs. no mask issue,” rally organizer Angie Brown said, according to Fox.

“This is an issue of right vs. wrong, and I am so happy that so many in our community recognized this wrong and were willing to show up, both to support Dr. Horak, but to also, in a peaceful way, voice their disagreement with Lake Region Medical Group,” she continued.

Horak spoke at the rally, noting that in the current climate, freedom is in danger.

“One, you’re becoming aware that your freedoms are being taken away. Two, professionals such as myself are being silenced, and then so are you. If it happens to me, it can happen to all of us,” Horak said. “And third, you’re afraid. We’re all afraid. Today I want to empower you to say, ‘I stand up with Dr. Horak. Truly, I stand with you.'”
