Today’s China Joe Biden Energy Policy Impact Update. – The price of a gallon of gasoline has now risen by 50 cents since Election Day, 2020.
Today’s Authoritarian Thought Control Update. – Facebook last week started censoring linking or cutting and pasting any news stories coming from Australia because the government there is cracking down on its monopolistic practices. This week, Twitter has begun suspending accounts whose messages it clams are “undermining faith in NATO.”
It took only two years to go from disappearing Milo and Alex Jones to banning content said to "amplify narratives that undermine faith in NATO."
Imagine where the line will be two years from now.
Censorship is an intoxicating power that endlessly expands until it's smashed. https://t.co/ShrHhTqxGY

Joseph Goebbels would be so proud.
Here’s the reward for announcing you’re going to start doing a new podcast with Barack Obama:
Bruce Springsteen news: U.S. prosecutors have agreed to drop the DUI and reckless driving charges against him, saying they can't prove their case. He'll plead guilty to a lesser charge of consuming alcohol in a U.S. park and pay a $500 fine.

I think maybe it’s time Bruce Springsteen cuts all those songs about how unfair the justice system is to the “working man” out of his repertoire.
Even the media knows Joe Biden is mentally impaired. – How do you know that’s the case? When you see multiple news reports doing “fact checks” talking about how it is perfectly normal to indefinitely delay delivering a State of the Union – style address to congress.
First, there indeed is not a requirement in the constitution or law for any president to deliver a state of the union speech. The constitution simply requires the president to update congress on the state of the union “from time to time,” and the form of that update could be a speech, or it could just be in writing as several early U.S. presidents chose to do. But over time, it has become an annual tradition for the president to deliver a speech.
In its story making excuses for Biden’s failure to make any such speech, USA Today notes that none of the last 6 presidents have chosen to deliver what was called a “state of the union” speech to congress during their first year in office, although they all, including Donald Trump, chose to make a speech without tagging it with that name. Biden’s White House initially set this past Tuesday as a tentative date for his giving such a speech, but that day came and went with little media notice, because to notice it would be to invite questions about Biden’s capacity for delivering such a speech.
Indeed, when you think about it, why would a Democrat president turn down the opportunity to deliver a nationally-televised speech to a congress in which his own party has nominal control of both the House and Senate? It’s a tailor-made opportunity to show off all the things you’ve already done and all you intend to do for the rest of the year with a captive audience of tens of millions of Americans. That’s certainly how Donald Trump used the opportunity in 2017 and how Barack Obama used it in 2009.
The USA Today excuse-making piece details how the White House initially said the speech would be this month, and how his spokesperson, Jen “Circle Back” Psaki, falsely claims that no such speech was ever contemplated:
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said on Feb. 16 that Biden’s first appearance before a joint session “was never planned to be in February,” even though Biden said in January that it would be, according to Axios.
Pelosi said on Feb. 11 that a joint session wouldn’t likely be convened until after Congress passes a COVID-19 relief bill, potentially delaying Biden’s first address until March, Roll Call reported.
“We won’t be doing any of that until we pass our COVID bill. That’s the first order of business,” she said.
So, why would China Joe’s handlers be reluctant to put their sock puppet out before the American people for such a prime PR opportunity? The answer’s pretty clear, isn’t it? They don’t want the American people en masse to get a good, long look at this guy as he struggles to read text from a teleprompter. Plus, they’re scared to death about what he might blurt out in the middle of the thing, or that he might start repeating the stuff they’re saying to him through the earpiece he constantly wears out loud, something he has already done several times now.
The man is a potential pratfall on feeble legs, and they know it. That is why he hasn’t already delivered a speech to a joint session of congress, and why he most likely never will.
His fellow Democrats in congress know he’s an accident waiting to happen, too. – They’re so worried about Biden’s advancing impairment that they want him to give up sole possession of the nuclear codes.
I swear I’m not making this up:
Breaking: Several House Democrats ask Biden to relinquish sole authority to launch nuclear weapons | Just The News https://t.co/Mj0MV9psJS
— John Solomon (@jsolomonReports) February 25, 2021
From the story at JustTheNews.com:
Multiple House Democrats have signed a letter urging President Biden to look at ways he can end his sole authority as president to order the use of America’s nuclear weapons.
“As president, you will have the final say on any changes to U.S. nuclear policy. We respectfully request that you, as president, review ways in which you can end the sole authority you have to launch a nuclear attack, and to install additional checks and balances into the system,” the letter states.
The letter notes that there have been multiple possible systems proposed and lists several of them. One proposal involves “Requiring additional officials in the line of presidential succession, starting with the vice president and the speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives — neither of whom can be removed by the president if they disagree — to concur with a launch order, and utilizing the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s tracking of those officials to ensure prompt communication.”
That’s three dozen House Democrats – Biden’s own Party – tacitly acknowledging how little confidence they have in the sock puppet they helped to install in the White House.
We are so screwed.
The perks of being a federal employee never end in a Democrat administration. – Check this out:
Wow. The BidenBucks bill pays federal employees up to 15 weeks of paid leave at $1400 per week if they have to stay home to virtual school kids.
You get $1400 once. They get it every week for 15 weeks. Swamp takes care of swamp.https://t.co/4A7ktpm1Zc

Think about that: You get $1400 one time, they get it every week for 15 weeks. My daughter has been home schooling her two daughters for 11 months now, and hasn’t received a dime from the feds for doing so. But if you’re a federal employee, you’re fixing to get 15 weeks of paid leave, which not coincidentally should get you through the rest of the school year. And my daughter and her husband’s taxes will help pay for that.
That is all.
