The democrats have a habit of foisting feeble minded presidents on the nation. They did it with Franklin Roosevelt in 1944, and they trying to do with Slow Joe Biden now, from Washington Examiner:

[Harry Truman] noticed that FDR was so ill that he couldn’t even pour cream into his coffee. Despite seeing direct evidence of Roosevelt’s poor health, Truman told reporters afterwards that Roosevelt “Looked fine…He’s as keen as a briar.”

Truman was lying. Roosevelt was a dying man, which was evident to everyone who saw him. But during the 1944 campaign, a conspiracy of silence reigned about his health. Roosevelt had a physical in the summer that showed he had high blood pressure and was suffering from congestive heart failure, but the results were kept from the public.

With the assistance of a compliant media that was overwhelmingly sympathetic to FDR, the issue of Roosevelt was a dying man, which was evident to everyone who saw him.

Europe payed the price for a feeble American President:

In February 1945, a dangerously ill Roosevelt traveled to Yalta to meet with Winston Churchill and Josef Stalin to discuss the future of post-war Europe. At Yalta, FDR effectively surrendered Poland and most of Eastern Europe to the Soviets. During the conference, Roosevelt lacked the stamina to keep up Stalin, and the agreements they reached reflected the poor state of FDR’s health.

Yalta should serve as a warning to what can happen when a president is materially unfit, physically or mentally, to serve in office. Biden’s health should and must be an issue, if not the key issue during the campaign. We mustn’t let history repeat itself.

The world was a dangerous place in 1945, as it remains today. Joe Biden is not capable of know what room or even what state he is in. Roosevelt was not able to confront Joseph Stalin, and Biden would neither capable nor willing to confront China.

Since nobody’s hording from the health and beauty isle, I figure we’re probably three weeks away from knowing everyone’s true hair color.

That said, I am frankly thinking that there is very little in the way of actual hoarding going on at all, even on toilet paper.

Oh, I know… Certainly, there is some of it, but I’d like you to consider that the average household doesn’t keep more than about a week’s worth of food in the house, or toilet paper or whatever supplies were talking about here.

Along comes the government which is now suggesting that we’re going to be quarantined pretty much for 3 to by some reports, 6 weeks? does anybody really supposed that’s not going to cause a run on the grocery stores?

That said, my cat got out earlier today, and we thought we’d lost him all together. However, two hours later it came back with 25 bags of kitty litter. We figure he’s been listening to CNN too much.

Two years ago Fearless Leader, Special Counsel Bobby Mueller, decided to make his pseudo investigation look like a real investigation by indicting some Russian nationals, who he knew would never show up in court, from News Thud:

In a stunning setback, the Department of Justice has decided to drop the case against the two firms that funded the Russian troll farms to cause chaos in our election.

Mueller indicted the two firms in February 2018, Mueller’s first big move in the investigation. The DOJ argues that the Russians companies are abusing our courts to try to get access to classified information and made the decision it is not worth it. After all that? Wow.

Then over two years later Team Fearless Leader dropped the case, with prejudice:

“Upon careful consideration of all of the circumstances, and particularly in light of recent events and a change in the balance of the government’s proof due to a classification determination, as well as other facts described in more detail in a classified addendum to this motion, the government has concluded that further proceedings as to Concord, a Russian company with no presence in the United States and no exposure to meaningful punishment in the event of a conviction, promotes neither the interests of justice nor the nation’s security.”

What changed in two years?  A defense counsel showed up in court.  End of case.

It’s not like we didn’t say anything about this:

With some experts predicting, at a minimum, anywhere from 480,000 to 1.6 million American deaths from the coronavirus over the next three to 18 months, how smart does urban living, mass transit, open borders, reusable straws, reusable grocery bags, reusable water bottles, gun restrictions, over-regulated housing, using the Centers for Disease Control to fight gun violence, and outsourcing to China look now?

Yeah, really. Like I say, it’s not like we haven’t said something about this previously…

What do these environmental loons think? That the whole idea of disposable items was just for laughs? That single-use was developed by some Bond villain desperate to destroy the planet? That going out to the country for “fresh air” was just some quaint concept?

No, the reason disposable items became so popular was sanitation. What could be safer than removing a straw from a sealed paper sleeve? Those straws are now outlawed in California.

What could be safer than single-use grocery bags where you throw away that leaked meat juice instead of carrying it around until you finally throw the bags in the wash? Those single-use bags are now banned in eight states, including New York, whose ban took effect on March 1.

And for how many years have we been talking about exporting our entire manufacturing capability to China, and the economic frailties involved with that process?

These are all things that the left has been pushing for generations now …and that’s who’s been ignoring the warnings that everybody else has been giving them.

Those problems are coming home to roost. And they all can be laid directly at the feet of the worldwide left…. And they should be called out on it.

Found elsewhere:

Ok, everyone wants to talk Corona virus… let’s talk about it.

Let’s talk about how China was fighting against the Hong Kong protesters that were waving American flags and praising Trump…. gone.

Let’s discuss how Trump has been tough on China and trade and theft of intelectual property. Now china threatens to withhold the ingredients for medicines.

Let’s talk about how the Democrats and main stream media have blamed Trump for everything since he was elected and have come out and said they hoped the stock market would crash to make him look bad.

Let’s talk about how we had a Harvard professor of bio chem working secretly for the Chinese and getting paid really well, while lying about his connections. We all have seen what these leftist college professors have indoctrinated our young people and how nasty they’ve been towards anyone that supports Trump. We’ve all seen how far the left and dems are willing to go to regain power and how the media has been used to promote their fake stories.1

Now we see them blame Trump for a Chinese virus and use the dem media to scare people and destabilize our markets.
Let’s talk about the Chinese girl that they’re looking for, that they think is now back in China , that had access to our defense department and military.

How about the Chinese guy they busted at the airport with vials of bio materials hidden in his sock! How about the Chinese driver that was discovered working for Fienstein?

Let’s talk about how there’s not more talk about protests in Venezuela.

How about the fact that there’s a Soros-owned bio lab in Wuhan, near that market they blamed, and the professor had ties to that lab.

Now China is trying to blame the virus on our military… makes no sense…since when do we have troops in China?

How about Nancy Pelosi trying to sneak in abortion funding into the funding bill for the virus.

Let’s talk about all the scandals that aren’t being talked about now…. like Hunter and Joe Biden’s corruption in Ukraine or how Nancy and Schiff abused power in congress to continue this never ending witch hunt against our President.

So all you sheeple…go ahead and beat each other over toilet paper. You’re now getting a taste of socialism at it’s finest. Lack of supplies, waiting in line, media scaring everyone while screwing the economy and only telling you what they think you should know.

Let’s look at Italy where they’re not going to treat the elderly because it’s too much money and they want to treat the young people.. there’s your socialized death squad medicine for you.

Go ahead and panic like Dems want. The rest of us that are still sane and are the last bastions of common sense aren’t going to panic, We’re not falling for the BS and yes, we will still vote Trump!

Of course, at this point, nobody’s leveling charges of racism, xenophobia, or what have you against the Europeans on this action, as they did against Trump…. back when it might have done some good.

Democrats, and especially Slow Joe Biden, have a fracking obsession with choo-choo trains. Albeit they like euphemisms like light rail or high speed rails. Of the latter it is only practical on the costs. As to the west coast, just ask California how the high speed rail project is going, other than no where.

The last time I checked, trains, be they fast or slow, run on fuel and Slow Joe doesn’t like fuel either, from Daily Wire:

Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden made extreme remarks during CNN’s presidential debate on Sunday night, suggesting that he would end the oil industry’s ability to drill, would ban new fracking projects, and would take millions of cars off the road.

Slow Joe on his investment for the future:

“No new fracking and, by the way, on the Recovery Act, I was able to make sure we invested $90 billion in making sure we brought down the price of solar and wind that is lower than the price of coal, that’s why not another new coal plant will be built,” Biden continued.

Thanks to the prying journalism skills of Katy “The Perky One” Couric, we know than Joe “Slow Joe” Biden (moron – DE) has, or at least did have eleven years ago, some requirements to be President, video:

Now forget the particular “facts” that Slow Joe is trying to enter into evidence, and just note the point the Slow Joe was attempting to make.

Now ask yourself, Slow Joe having established a standard of necessary fitness to be President, some eleven years ago, does Slow Joe pass his own standard today, video:

I would argue that by Slow Joe’s own self-proclaimed standards, he flunked his own test on the Couric interview.  What say you?

The Wuflu horses have escaped from the barn. The good news is the democrat presumptive nominee Slow Joe Biden (moron – DE) has announced plan to fight the virus. The bad that while the Wuflu horse have escaped, Slow Joe has no plans, or even see the need, to close the barn doors, from Breitbart:

Former Vice President Joe Biden’s plan to combat the coronavirus in the United States does not include a single travel ban on any foreign country and revamps welfare-dependent legal immigration to the U.S. that President Trump’s administration has sought to end.

On Thursday, Biden unveiled a series of measures to fight the coronavirus but did not include so much as a travel ban on Wuhan, China, where the virus originated and where the majority of the more than 80,000 Chinese nationals infected with the coronavirus live.[…]

Biden’s coronavirus plan is similar to that of his 2020 Democrat opponent Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) in that both have effectively ruled out protecting American citizens by implementing travel bans. Sanders, this week, explicitly said that he would not close America’s borders even if it stopped the spread of the coronavirus.

There have been 1,422 confirmed cases of the coronavirus and 38 deaths in the U.S.

Slow Joe is too concerned about pandering to his Chinese handers to worry about protecting the American public.

The President seeks to protect our country from the Wuflu, from Breitbart:

The travel ban, Department of Homeland Security (DHS) officials confirmed, will begin Friday, March 13 and ban foreign nationals who have been in certain European countries at any point during the 14 days prior to their scheduled arrival to the U.S.

The countries from which foreign nationals are banned include: Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, and Switzerland.

, 220 House Democrats have signed onto the “No Ban Act” to stop Trump from being able to executively issue travel bans. Under the Democrats’ plan, travelers directly from Wuhan, China, and Italy would be allowed to continue entering the U.S. via flights.

Means while some in Congress seek to make political points rather then protect our country:

“This bill imposes limitations on the President’s authority to suspend or restrict aliens from entering the United States and terminates certain presidential actions implementing such restrictions,” a summary of the legislation reads.

The legislation would mandate Trump “only issue a restriction when required to address a compelling government interest,” although that interest is not defined. Before imposing a travel ban, Trump would have to “consult with Congress,” the legislation dictates.

Likewise, Democrat Senators Christopher Murphy (D-CT), Christopher Coons (D-DE), Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), and Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) have introduced legislation to stop Trump’s recent expansion of a travel ban on some legal immigration from Burma, Eritrea, Kyrgyzstan, Nigeria, Tanzania, and Sudan, along with Iran, Libya, North Korea, Somalia, Syria, Venezuela, and Yemen.

Meanwhile back at Congress, while not willing to protect our collective home, Congress is willing to protect their home:

Congress is shutting down the U.S. Capitol to the public until April 1, the Associated Press reported Thursday.

Leave it to some in Congress to both want to allow infected foreigners in the country but to keep Americans out of the Peoples’ House.

Ever heard of German Measles, Spanish Flu, Ebola Virus, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever or Lyme Disease. It is common practice to name diseases after people or places. Evidently Speaker Nancy Pelosi, has never heard of the practice or never before expressed objections. Well it appears that Nanny Nancy’s Chinese handlers don’t like the term Wuhan Virus and directed to raise a fuss, from News Turd:

Politico reports House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy is taking heat for calling Covid-19 the “Chinese coronavirus” in a recent tweet — a reference that prompted the Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to demand an apology Tuesday.

“Calling the 2019 novel coronavirus the ‘Chinese’ or ‘Wuhan’ coronavirus is as descriptive as calling it the ‘CPAC coronavirus’ — that is to say not descriptive at all,’’ CAPAC Chairwoman Rep. Judy Chu, the first Chinese American woman elected to Congress, said in a statement. “Worse, it’s harmful.’’

Diseases named after places.

I don’t know about this theory of Representative Chu that having a disease share a name with a locality somehow causes harm to that locality.  After all, Germany, Spain, the Rocky Mountains and Lyme, Connecticut all seem to be quite well.

Then what about Representative Chu describing the Wuflu with the name of the flagship Beer of the Rochester area’s biggest distilling comoany.

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive.

It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. They may be more likely to go to Heaven yet at the same time likelier to make a Hell of earth.

This very kindness stings with intolerable insult. To be “cured” against one’s will and cured of states which we may not regard as disease is to be put on a level of those who have not yet reached the age of reason or those who never will; to be classed with infants, imbeciles, and domestic animals.

– C.S. Lewis

Yet another Slow Joe Thursday, another primary, and all wrapped up in one sentence.  It is the Snark of the Day, from J.J. Sefton, Ace of Spades:

Forgetting for a moment his age, dementia, combativeness and nearly 50-years of scandal and criminality with the cherry on top of his son and Burisma, the Democrats have incessantly proclaimed themselves the paragons of diversity, but are now choosing one of two elderly white men as their nominee.

Other than that Mrs. Lincoln, how was the play.

Slow Joe Biden in a campaign stop in Michigan did a John Kerry on the Second Amendment. He was for the Second just moments before he was against it, from NOQ Report:

[A]t a campaign stop at a factory today, [Slow Joe] Biden got a little agitated over a question about the 2nd Amendment.[…]

Biden initially noted that he wasn’t going to take guns away, noting that “you’re full of sh*t.” Then when the worker mentioned a “viral video” Biden lampooned the notion, comparing it to other viral videos that he seemed to insinuate were false. He then proceeded to describe his love for guns, including shotguns that he and his sons used for hunting.

agitated over a question about the 2nd Amendment.

So far, we’ve found two versions of the video. The one above is longer and seems to have better audio, while the one below from Benny Johnson gives a clearer picture of Biden’s angered facial features as he berates the guy.

Biden initially noted that he wasn’t going to take guns away, noting that “you’re full of sh*t.” Then when the worker mentioned a “viral video” Biden lampooned the notion, comparing it to other viral videos that he seemed to insinuate were false. He then proceeded to describe his love for guns, including shotguns that he and his sons used for hunting.

From there, he says he’s only going to take AR-14s away. There are, of course, no such thing as AR-14s, but it’s close enough for the discussion. He later appropriately calls them “AR-15s.” But the sticking point in the heated debate seemed to be Biden’s description of them as “machine guns” while the worker rightly referred to them as semi-automatic rifles. Biden continuously asked him why he needed 100 rounds. The typical AR-15 clip holds 30 rounds.

Video:

Text of the Second Amendment:

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

Points:

  • There is no language in the actual text of the Second to suggest that the amendment is only applicable to sporting fire arms.
  • Outside of Slow Joe’s fervid imagination there appears is no such weapon as an AR-14
  • An AR-15, even in Delaware, is semi-automatic rifle and not a machine gun.
  • Slow Joe did suggest that he would appoint Beto O’Rourke to take away American weapon. Yet Slow Joe feigns support for the Second Amendment.

Imagine if President Donny assaulted an American voter by brandishing his finger.
