Did Sarah Palin say she could see Russia from her house? Of course not. This liberal lie has been debunked over and over and over for a decade. Despite the fact that she has never said anything like it, the Left has repeatedly used it to discredit her — typically by calling her stupid. And Joe Biden, despite his talk of unity and being the President of ALL Americans, is no different from the rest of those on the Left who are willing to blatantly lie about others with whom they disagree.

“You watch people lose confidence in government, just lose confidence when you tell the truth. That’s why, when I announced, I quoted Franklin Roosevelt, I said ‘I’ll give it to you straight from the shoulder.’ The American people can handle anything if you tell them the truth,” Biden said while celebrating the passage of the inaccurately-labeled COVID-19 relief bill that does little to actually provide relief. “I remember being given the dubious distinction of having to implement the Recovery Act, back in (pauses), when we came into office,” he added, apparently forgetting the year he became Vice President. And while Biden touted his own honesty just moments earlier, he launched into an unprovoked lie about Sarah Palin of all people:

“I spent literally four, five hours a day day for six months. I talked to ’em over a hundred and sixty mayors, probably more than two or three times. Every governor save one who was looking at from Alaska to Russia,” Biden said — a reference to “I can see Russia from my house.”

So if Sarah Palin didn’t say it, who did? And why did she receive credit for such a stupid statement? Naturally, it was liberal Tina Fey in a Saturday Night Live sketch.

The President of the United States thinks a SNL sketch is real. We repeat: the President of the United States believes that what he sees on a scripted sketch comedy show is something that actually happened.

Many have been talking about Joe Biden’s clear cognitive decline for a while now, but even the LEft must face the reality that the man with the nuclear codes cannot distinguish between what is real and what is not. Eventually, we need to do something about it — before Dementia Joe kills our country.

As Democrats told us a lot before the election, it’s important to quarantine when you are infected with COVID. But now that Biden is President*, it just doesn’t seem all that important — at least as far as illegals are concerned.

Recently, it was reported that more than 100 illegals who had tested positive for COVID were released into the wild in Texas. Were they forced to quarantine like American citizens would be? Tracked? Humiliated just for being a little sick? Not at all — they were advised to quarantine and sent on their way wherever they wanted to go. And many said they didn’t plan to follow the quarantine advice. In other words, these COVID-positive illegals are out there right now infecting Americans.

Asked if illegals are forced to quarantine, Biden Press Secretary Jen Psaki pretended that she didn’t know the answer:

“I just wanted to convey because I knew you were asking a good question here,” Psaki said. “That’s the very specific processes that are taken for each scenario…um, and certainly, there are with these in with the individuals who are coming across alternatives who are treated with again noted sometimes ankle bracelets as they come across while they’re waiting for adjudication of their cases.”

“Those are the steps that are taken. Those are the recommendations that are made…and I just noted that testing is…there’s a proposal for testing all of these individuals as they come across…so that’s what our policy processes are,” she continued. “Still, in terms of specific data and numbers, I would certainly refer you to CBP, or I’m happy to talk to them as well…”

In other words, the reports coming out of Texas are accurate and she doesn’t want to admit it — despite the administration promising transparency.

Joe Biden’s failed immigration policies are putting Americans at risk in a number of ways — and one of them contributes to the thousands of COVID deaths we see daily on his watch.

The still-anonymous D.C. police officer who opened fire on and murdered Ashli Babbitt at the incident at the Capitol on January 6 has some ‘splaining to do. Not only was Babbitt unarmed when she was gunned down by the officer, but his justification for using lethal force against someone who committed, at most, the crime of trespassing is falling apart.

The Gateway Pundit reports that part of the officer’s justification for using lethal force was that he had heard alleged reports “that pipe bombs had been found” in the area and he worried that Babbitt was carrying explosives. He had no evidence of this but, according to the report, “Babbitt was wearing a backpack, which allegedly compounded his fears.”

So, to recap: He was worried about his own speculation based on unsubstantiated reports and, feeling he was in danger, chose not to retreat and call for backup. Instead, he gunned down an unarmed woman despite an ability to easily call in help — all because she was wearing a backpack. In addition, a tactical team was already on its way up the stairwell behind Babbitt.

What was in this backpack? What is so deadly? The officer’s wild imagination gave him, in his own opinion, license to execute her. So, it must have been bad, right?

It was a wool sweater and a scarf of mass destruction — two items people typically carry in cold.

We The People deserve to know the name of this officer. He must be charged, tried, and found guilty. Babbitt, who served our country with honor, did nothing to threaten anyone. She was not a danger. She was peacefully demanding election integrity. The office is currently in hiding, but Ashli is dead. Dead because he got trigger happy. Americans, and her family, deserve justice.

If Oregon Democrats have their way, it will soon be a good time to be black in the Beaver State — six figures good. As the United States struggles to keep up with the costs of a deadly pandemic, and Americans are more divided than ever, Democrat state Senators in Oregon have somehow come up with something that will both rack up a ridiculous amount of taxpayer debt and further the divide between races — a massive “Reparations” payment to African-Americans.

Not a single black person alive was a slave, nor were their parents. Slavery is a shameful part of our history we left behind long ago. Since then, African-Americans have been given the same rights and opportunities as everyone else — moreso when discriminatory “affirmative action” policies are taken into account. But Oregon Democrats say that simply for the virtue of their skin color, African-Americans need to be paid the handsome sum of $123,000 — each. The Daily Wire reports:

According to a copy of the state Senate bill, the government will pay six figures to any person who can demonstrate that they are a descendant of American slaves and have “identified as African-American” on legal documents. 

The text of the bill directs the state Department of Revenue to establish a reparations payment program to black Oregonians “who can demonstrate heritage in slavery” and provide documentation that they identify as “African-American” for at least 10 years. Recipients must reside in the state for at least two years before the application deadline of Dec. 31, 2022. 

The payment would be an annuity where recipients would receive $123,000 paid out over the course of their life, plus interest. 

A “lifetime” would be determined by the average lifespan of an African-American person. In an example given, a 30-year-old black man would receive a salary of $2,733 per year just for existing because the average lifespan of a black man is 75 years. With interest, that number could rise to $2,870 per year. This would be paid in addition to any actual income that man earned. Republicans estimate that this race-based gift could cost Oregonian taxpayers a whopping $11.8 trillion and would likely increase taxes for everyone else.

There is also worry among those who are willing to think more reasonably about this exercise in government overreach and waste that a yearly stipend just for existing may cause an influx of black folks to come to the state in hopes of getting another round of reparations payments.

Democrats’ push for Reparations doesn’t stop at the state level either. Joe Biden is exploring a plan to make historically black colleges and universities free for African-Americans — on the taxpayers’ dime, that is.

We are all Americans. This is true regardless of creed, race, or any other factors Democrats traditionally use to divide us and create an “us versus them” mentality. Now is the time for unity, but the Left is going in the opposite direction.

Joe Biden has lost Mexico. While our neighbor to the South repeatedly attacked President Trump for his remarkably successful border policies, they are now realizing that, just perhaps, President Trump was right — something we knew all along.

Shockingly, or not so shockingly if the sarcasm isn’t appropriately evident, Reuters reports that Biden’s disastrous policies are probably a.) causing an increase in illegal immigration and b.) helping prop up organized crime — and Mexico is understandably displeased.

“They see him as the migrant president, and so many feel they’re going to reach the United States,” Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said of Biden’s policies, which have led to a flood of immigrants, many of whom have tested positive for COVID, beating down America’s door. “We need to work together to regulate the flow, because this business can’t be tackled from one day to the next.” And indeed, detentions at the border in February were the highest in 15 years.

But Mexican officials are concerned not with the flood of illegals into the United States, but with another effect of the Biden Administration’s already-failed policy decisions — organized crime:

One Mexican official familiar with migration developments, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said organized crime began changing its modus operandi “from the day Biden took office” and now exhibited “unprecedented” levels of sophistication.

That includes briefing clients on the latest immigration rules, using technology to outfox authorities, and disguising smuggling operations as travel agencies, assessments showed.

“Migrants have become a commodity,” the official said, arguing they were now as valuable as drugs for the gangs. “But if a packet of drugs is lost in the sea, it’s gone. If migrants are lost, it’s human beings we’re talking about.”

Thanks to Biden, Mexican cartels, which are operating without fear, will gain power in an already dangerous region. Only time will tell how much damage our current President* will do, but it’s already clear that damage will indeed be done.

American media may dance around Joe Biden’s clear cognitive decline. But the rest of the world, not so much. Recently, Australia’s Sky News anchor Cory Bernardi stated the obvious: “Never before has the leader of the free world been so cognitively compromised.”

“It’s clear to me at the least that US President Joe Biden is struggling with dementia and is clearly not up to the task he’s been sworn in to do,” Bernardi continued, pointing out that it was “evident” during the election. However, he says, the “partisan and poisonous” media didn’t mention it because they were afraid of anything that may “derail” a Biden win. “Even now, after he has been sworn in, many of them are still refusing to speak the truth about Biden’s lack of capacity.”

During a White House event, Biden once again put his issues on full display. TheBlaze reports:

During a White House event this week, President Joe Biden struggled to name both his defense secretary and the Pentagon, instead calling Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin “the guy who runs that outfit over there.”

“I want to thank the sec … the, the, ah, former general. I keep calling him general, but my, my — the guy who runs that outfit over there,” Biden said.

A video clip of Biden’s blunder has gone viral, with critics calling it evidence of the president’s cognitive “decline” while others, such as fact-checking site Snopes, suggest the 78-year-old commander in chief may just have gotten “stuck doing an extended ‘folksy’ ad lib after initially tripping over his words.”

The liberal media may be willing to ignore the fact that a mentally-compromised man has been effectively installed to “lead” the country. But the rest of us should be terrified. Joe Biden was never intended to serve — he was intended to act as a placeholder until the day Kamala Harris eventually takes his place. Watch this unsettling incident below:

Keep a list of names. Ever since Joe Biden “won” the shady, suspicious 2020 election that caused more than a dozen states to demand answers, many RINOS have been toadying up to him. And on Thursday, eight of those “Republicans” joined Democrats to push through a major gun control bill.

Vern Buchanan. Brian Fitzpatrick. Maria Salazar. Andrew Garbarino. Chris Smith. Fred Upton. Carlos Gimenez. Adam Kinzinger. These are the names of so-called Republicans who think it’s OK to use Democrats’ 2020 coup as an opportunity to strip gun rights away from Americans by making it harder to purchase one. We already have to jump through a lot of hoops to buy a firearm. Now, i this bill becomes law, One Democrat — Jared Golden — voted against the massive gun bill.

The  “Background Checks Act” prohibits firearms transfers without a background check being performed. In other words, private gun sales are going to become a bureaucratic mess. The Hill reports:

The legislation would implement new background check requirements for gun transfers between private parties.

Under current law, unlicensed and private sellers are not required to conduct background checks for gun transfers despite licensed firearm dealers being required to do so. 

The bill would require “a licensed gun dealer, manufacturer, or importer” to first take possession of the gun while a background check is being conducted. 

This bill will do nothing to stem gun violence, but it will make everyday Americans uneasy about selling their guns, and it will absolutely make the process more expensive.

When Joe Biden began enacting his disastrous border policies, it became clear to everyone that they were a failure. Illegals surged to the border hoping to take advantage of the newly-lax security to muscle their way into the country. And, of course, gang activity increased along the border. While “hope” might be a strange word to apply to the situation, it’s the one Biden’s Southern Border Coordinator Roberta Jacobson chose.

 “We’ve seen surges before. Surges tend to respond to hope, and there was significant hope for a more humane policy after four years of pent-up demand,” Jacobson, who once served as ambassador to Mexico, said at a White House briefing. “There was a hope for a more humane policy after four years of pent-up demand, so I don’t know if I would call that a coincidence.”

She also admits that Biden’s policies may have helped smuggling operations.  “But the idea that a more humane policy would be in place may have driven people to make that decision, but perhaps, more importantly, it definitely drove smugglers to express disinformation, spread disinformation about what was now possible.”

“We are trying to walk and chew gum at the same time,” she says, referencing an age-old adage related to stupidity — as in “he’s so dumb I bet he can’t walk and chew gum at the same time.” Accidental self-burn aside, Jacobson says that they plan to solve the problem by spreading awareness that you can legally cross the border too:

We are trying to convey to everyone in the region that we will have legal processes in the future … But at the same time, you cannot come through irregular means.” 

“The border is not open,” she added, though she noticeably chose to say “irregular” rather than “illegal” to soften the statement. This administration is, to put it bluntly, a total sh**show on immigration — so much so that Jacobson was forced by Fox News’ Steve Doocy to admit that Trump did a better job at stopping illegals than Biden. Watch below:

Surprise, surprise. Yet another woman is now accusing New York Governor Andrew Cuomo of sexual harassment. And while Cuomo says that he didn’t touch anyone inappropriately as he stubbornly refuses to resign from his role as the head of a coverup of nursing home deaths under his watch, that’s what the latest accuser says happened.

The Albany Times Union reports that Cuomo summoned her to his mansion, where he touched her without her consent. And on the timeline, this accusation is by far the most recent. The woman, who has not been named, says that this happened in late 2020 — right before the beginning of the pandemic:

The alleged incident took place after the woman, a member of the governor’s Executive Chamber staff, had been summoned to the mansion to assist the governor with a work-related matter. The woman’s supervisors recently became aware of the allegation and alerted the governor’s counsel of it on Monday.

An official close to the matter on Tuesday confirmed to the Times Union that the new allegation had been made, although Cuomo, during a news conference hours later, denied knowledge of it.

“First, I’m not aware of any other claim,” Cuomo says. “As I said last week, this is very simple: I never touched anyone inappropriately. … I never made any inappropriate advances … (and) no one ever told me at the time that I made them feel uncomfortable. Obviously, there are people who said after the fact they felt uncomfortable.” Notably, Cuomo did not deny touching the woman. As the sixth woman stepped out to speak up, Donald Trump Jr. asked a very good question: “I wonder how many more there are?”

Good question. Cuomo finds himself embroiled in scandals, most of which involve former staffers and others he could bully into submission. But we must also remember the big one — the one the sexual harassment allegations distract from. His responsibility for nursing home deaths as he made bad decisions — lethal decisions — then lied to cover them up. Just like he is attempting to do now with the numerous women who have spoken out about his actions.

Last year, Democrat Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer issued an executive order that had everyone — liberals, conservatives, horses, and any other group one can imagine — questioning her fitness for office and her status as a human being. This policy contributed to nursing home deaths at unimaginable levels. Now she may have to finally pay the piper for her irresponsibility.

Despite warnings that this was a bad idea, Whitmer issued an executive order prohibiting long-term-care facilities like nursing homes from telling “residents who tested positive for COVID-19 regardless of whether they were contagious” to quarantine elsewhere despite the particularly high danger presented to residents at nursing homes, who are among the most vulnerable among us. TheBlaze reports that the damage Whitmer did cannot be accurately calculated, largely because of the government’s reticence to provide data:

The exact number of long-term facility residents who died of COVID-19 in Michigan is not known, and state Republican lawmakers say Whitmer’s administration is not disclosing critical data. As of the end of February, state data indicated that more than 5,500 Michiganders had perished from COVID-19 in long-term facilities, WDIV-TV reported, or about one-third of all COVID-19 deaths in Michigan.

But Whitmer can’t cover up her crimes forever, and Macomb County prosecutor Peter Lucido says that he’s open to prosecuting her once evidence surfaces.

“If we find there’s been willful neglect of office, if we find there’s been reckless endangerment of a person’s life by bringing them in, then we would move forward with charges against the Governor,” Lucido says. Of course, we would. Nobody’s above the law in this state.”

According to WXYZ, Lucido asks Michiganders  “who lost loved ones to COVID as residents or staff inside nursing homes should go back to get the vital information about the circumstances of their death and take that to local police and make a complaint as a wrongful death” to help further matters.

Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel, a Democrat, is resisting all efforts to bring Whitmer to justice, however. “If you can give us some evidence that there’s been violations of the law, and you can give us some evidence that there was not just conduct that, again, is bad policy, but conduct that violates state or federal statutes, let us know about it for certain,” she says. “But if not, I get weary of the constant calls for our department to investigate things that are not crimes.”

Despite her policies killing people, Whitmer calls Lucido’s remarks “shameful political attacks based in neither fact nor reality.” Whitmer can hide, but she can’t evade justice forever.
