Saturday News Roundup: Biden Declares that ‘America is back’ to Bowing to International Despots

This is what the left has wrought. – Speaking before the G-7 Summit on Friday, China Joe Biden declared “America is back,” and unilaterally surrendered American interests to Europe, China, and Russia. Because that’s what internationalists do. Calling an end to “America first” diplomacy, Biden signaled that the U.S. government would ensure that the interest of its citizens once again become subservient to other nations in a return to globalism.

From the story at DailyWire:

President Biden told leaders at the G-7 summit on Friday,the same day the U.S. reentered the Paris Agreement, that the days of “America First” diplomacy championed by former President Trump were over, according toThe New York Times.

As The New York Post, which cited Biden’s intent to declare on Friday that the “America First” era was over, noted, “Biden has swiftly dismantled Trump’s foreign policy agenda, which saw the U.S. withdraw from the World Health Organization, the Paris Agreement and the Iran nuclear deal, which Trump believed were against the nation’s interests.”

One official told the Post, “Now he will get the opportunity as president of the United States early in his term to declare that America is back and the trans-Atlantic alliance is back. He will look forward to driving home the core proposition that the trans-Atlantic alliance is a cornerstone for American engagement in the world in the 21st century, just as it was in the 20th.”

Biden claimed, “America is back, the trans-Atlantic alliance is back … we are not looking backward.” He stated, “We have to prove that our model isn’t a relic of history. We must demonstrate that democracies can still deliver for our people in this changed world. That is our galvanizing mission. Democracy doesn’t happen by accident. We have to defend it. Strengthen it. Renew it.”

The G-7 group includes the United States, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, and the United Kingdom in its organization.

So, we’re back in the worthless Paris Climate Accords, in which we are the only nation on earth that, thanks to the use of natural gas in power generation to displace coal, has already met our emissions goals through 2025. We will now fork over billions every year to be redistributed to the world’s other grasping nations under that agreement.

We’re back in the World Health Organization, that mouthpiece for China whose budget we pay a wildly disproportionate share. And we’re back “negotiating” with Iran so that we can go back to subsidizing the Mullahs’ pursuit of becoming a nuclear power, as we did during the Obama/Biden years.

All of this in Biden’s first month serving as our national DC Swamp sock puppet-in-chief.

We are so screwed.

The Sock Puppet was traveling yesterday. – During a trip to Michigan to visit a facility run by COVID vaccine manufacturer Pfizer, the Sock Puppet told reporters that the economy – which was in a major recovery while Donald Trump was still in the White House, but has faded since – won’t recover until “we beat this virus.”

From the story at The Daily Caller:

President Joe Biden said Friday that the American economy won’t recover “until we beat this virus.”

“I got a letter from more than 400 mayors from big cities and small towns. They understand we’re not gonna get our economy back in shape and the millions of people back to work until we beat this virus,” Biden said during a visit to a Pfizer facility in Michigan that manufactures coronavirus vaccines.

Meanwhile, this was what his brother Frank Biden was doing Thursday night:

That’s Frank on the left, partying with Floyd Mayweather and a couple of his mask-less pals. Yeah, the Biden family’s really serious about beating this virus, huh?

Repeat after me: The fence is permanent. The fence is permanent. The fence is permanent. – To no one’s real surprise, the head of the DC Capitol Police yesterday was making the rounds, urging members of congress to continue funding the wall, er, ‘fence’ around the capitol building and the 7,000 National Guard troops who remain deployed in DC through at least September.

From the story at JustTheNews.com:

U.S. Capitol Police officials are telling Washington lawmakers the recently installed security fencing should stay up until at least September, citing continuing security concerns, according to a news report Friday.

The plan is being reported by CNN, based on information from a source familiar with the matter.

The fencing was installed after the Jan. 6 breach of the U.S. Capitol and before the Jan. 20 inauguration of President Biden.

The roughly 7-foot-high, chain-linked fence, topped with razor wire, was supposed to be removed in March. But its future, like many matters in Washington, is caught in political crosswinds.

“While there is no specific, credible threat to the homeland at this time, DHS continues to gather, review, and analyze new intelligence each day and regularly updates its federal, state, local, tribal, and non-governmental partners on the results of those efforts,” a Department of Homeland Security spokesperson told CNN. “The most significant terrorism-related threat currently facing the nation comes from lone offenders and small groups of individuals inspired by domestic extremist ideological beliefs, including those based on false narratives spread over social media and other online platforms.”

[End]

Get that? He wants it to stay there through “at least” September, at which time he will no doubt urge it remain for another year or two years or four years or however long the DC Swamp believes they must “temporarily” extend it until the public has completely forgotten the days when it wasn’t there and become fully acclimated to it. In other words, as long as it takes to boil the proverbial frog.

The wall, er, ‘fence’ is permanent, as is the National Guard presence in the nation’s capitol. It is permanent because the denizens of the swamp know this government is illegitimate, and they know that we know it. Just as is the case in third-world countries all over the globe, the only way to ensure an illegitimate government remains in power is trough the force and protection of the military.

The Capitol wall, er, ‘fence’ is part of that protection. Washington, DC is a police state. Get used to it.

From our You Just Can’t Make This Stuff Up file… – Try to imagine the outrage if this internal Coca Cola training regime urged employees to be “less black” or “less Asian” or “less Hispanic”:

I would say this is unbelievably racist, but hey, it’s all too believable in today’s society.

If Coca-Cola management attempted to apply this training to Black, Asian or Hispanic folks, the company would be hounded out of business by the media and the government, and deservedly so. But because the company’s bigotry is directed at White people, no one in the corrupt news media will even bother to report the story.

Hey, what’s wrong? China Joe Biden says it’s all just a cultural difference.:

Hilarious. Does anyone doubt for a single second that Alisyn Camerota voted for Joe Biden? Of course she did.

 

That is all.

And Just Like That, The Wall Around the Capitol Will be Made Permanent

Hey, nobody could’ve seen this one coming! Oh, wait… – During my weekly Saturday morning interview on NewsTalk 93.1 FM in Montgomery, AL, last week, I told host Greg Budell that we should expect the National Guard troop presence and fencing around the Capitol Building to become permanent fixtures in the nation’s capital. That prediction was based on a number of factors, including my 20 years as a lobbyist and having been in D.C. on business the day after the Clinton Administration shut down the stretch of Pennsylvania Avenue that runs in front of the White House.

That action was taken in September 1994 after a man flew his Cessna 150 airplane into the White House, and was viewed at the time as a reasonable safety measure that all the talking heads on television initially assured the public would be temporary in nature. After all, shutting down that stretch of Pennsylvania Ave. caused an amazing amount of disruption to the city’s traffic patterns given that it was one of the most heavily-trafficked paths between the government part of the District and Georgetown.

But the D.C. cabbies knew different. Every cabbie I rode with on that 3-day trip told me with absolute certainty that they would never be able to drive that stretch of road again. Even though the members of congress and staff I met with that week all assured me that the road would eventually be re-opened, the cabbies uniformly reminded me that once such barriers to public access go up in D.C., they never come down. Indeed, within a year the temporary concrete barriers were removed from the street and replaced with permanent barriers – a Democrat-ordered security wall, for all intents and purposes – and remain in place 27 years later.

Even more, the security measures spread.  Using the plane crash and the first terrorist attack on the World Trade Center as justification, within another year metal detectors had sprung up at all executive branch buildings, the Capitol Building, the Supreme Court Building and in all congressional office buildings as well. More barriers to public access.

The January 6 riot at the Capitol will now be used to limit public access to their elected representatives even further in our burgeoning Orwellian police state. The Chief of the Capitol Police – whose members were caught on tape voluntarily allowing rioters to waltz into the Capitol building on that day – kicked off the latest move on Thursday by urging Congress to allocate funds to make the barbed-wire topped prison wall constructed around the Capitol in the wake of that riot permanent.

Because of course he did.

From a story at Reuters:

Acting Capitol Police Chief Yogananda Pittman noted a 2006 security assessment specifically recommended the installation of a permanent perimeter fence around the Capitol.

“I can unequivocally say that vast improvements to the physical security infrastructure must be made to include permanent fencing, and the availability of ready, back-up forces in close proximity to the Capitol,” Pittman said.

But Congressman Hakeem Jeffries, chairman of the House Democratic Caucus, told CNN it was “premature to determine what are the appropriate steps that need to be taken to better secure the Capitol.”

Washington Mayor Muriel Bowser wrote on Twitter that “we will not accept extra troops or permanent fencing as a long-term fixture in DC,” but said “potentially volatile events” would require temporary extra security.

The Department of Homeland Security did not cite specific threats in its bulletin, which was issued Wednesday, but said some “domestic violent extremists” may feel emboldened by the Capitol rampage.

[End]

Congress will easily overrule the tepid objections from Mayor Muriel Bowser, a fellow Democrat who will do what the DC Swamp tells her to do in order to be allowed to continue getting rich by holding her office. Note also she says she will not accept “extra troops” and not “any troops”, giving her the ability to say what she meant was that she would not accept any more on a permanent basis than are currently in the District, which by all reports remains in the thousands.

Indeed, the National Guard presence there is being beefed-up yet again due to a claim of a “heightened security threat” issued by Homeland Security. The Chicago Sun-Times reported yesterday that Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker alone is sending another 500 National Guard personnel to DC as a result of that suspect claim:

Gov. J.B. Pritzker said Thursday he’s activated 500 Illinois National Guard members for a “security mission” in Washington, D.C., that will last until mid-March.

“The U.S. Department of Defense has asked Illinois to assist federal and local agencies in this continued effort, and Major General Neely and I are ready to ensure that the state of Illinois continues its proud legacy of protecting our democracy,” Pritzker said in a statement.

“Ultimately, we must root out the dark forces of racism, white supremacy and disinformation that have created this moment, but until we do that, our extraordinary troops will deploy with honor.”

[End]

I added the bolding there myself, because that justification – an effort to “root out dark forces of racism, white supremacy and disinformation” – is what today’s Democrats and Swampy Republicans believe they can use to justify literally any action they wish to take against the people of this country.

Here is the current expansive footprint of the Capitol fence the Swamp is about to make into a permanent security wall:

May be an image of map

So, walls along the border designed to protect our nation from invasion are, in the minds of the DC Swamp, bad.

But a wall around the Capitol and all of the congressional office buildings designed to limit the public’s ability to petition its elected representatives? That kind of wall is good.

Welcome to Prison State America.
