Everything is President Donald Trump’s fault. When a few private citizens got rowdy at the Capitol on January 6, Democrats and the media blamed Trump despite his pleas for calm — pleas that somehow got him banned from every social media platform except Parler, which Amazon took down. Seemingly everything from a pandemic with global reach to even the border crisis that has resulted from Biden’s failed immigration policies can be blamed on President Trump if one tries hard enough. And Nancy Pelosi? She’s trying pretty hard.

“The — actually, the facts of these, there are more children, about 600, 700 more children, unaccompanied children coming over the border. This is a humanitarian challenge to all of us,” Pelosi said in an interview on Sunday with ABC News. “What the administration has inherited is a broken system at the border and they are working to correct that.”

On Tuesday, President Trump told Americans the truth about what is going on at the border: abject failure. “We ended Catch-and-Release, shut down asylum fraud and crippled the vicious smugglers, drug dealers and human traffickers,” Trump said in a statement. “The Wall, despite horrendous Democratic delays, would have easily been finished by now, and is working magnificently.”

 “Our country is being destroyed at the Southern border, a terrible thing to see!” President Trump adds. And he’s right. Illegals who are swarming across the border say that they are here because of Joe Biden, no one else.

“Biden promised us that everything was going to change,” one woman attempting to come to America told The New York Times. “He hasn’t done it yet, but he is going to be a good president for migrants.” Another says “Biden promised us!” that they would be welcomed into the U.S.

Watch Pelosi’s disaster of an interview below:

“Migrant President” Joe Biden’s failed border policies are cause for concern. Mexico is concerned because he is making cartels, which now operate in the open, are gaining power at the border. Americans are concerned because the flood of illegals are not only stealing away jobs at a time when they are scarce but are testing positive for COVID-19, refusing to quarantine, and are infecting citizens with the virus. The illegals though? They’re concerned with coming to America because they know Biden will bend over backwards to hand our country over to them.

“Biden promised us that everything was going to change,” one “migrant” told The New York Times. “He hasn’t done it yet, but he is going to be a good president for migrants.” Another says “Biden promised us!” that they would be allowed into the U.S.

“He hasn’t done it yet” is something that can be said for many of Joe Biden’s broken promises to Americans. But like leftists, people flooding into our country are keeping the faith. The Daily Wire reports that:

Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers say that some 100,000 foreigners came to the border in February alone, and after weeks of claiming all is well, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) on Saturday acknowledged that “record numbers” of foreigners are overwhelming U.S. agencies, prompting the department to call in help from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).

“The federal government is responding to the arrival of record numbers of individuals, including unaccompanied children, at the southwest border. Since April 2020, the number of encounters at the border has been rising due to ongoing violence, natural disasters, food insecurity, and poverty in the Northern Triangle countries of Central America,” the DHS said. “The federal government is working around the clock to move unaccompanied children from Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to the Department of Health and Human Services’ (HHS) care and to place them with a family member or sponsor until their immigration case is adjudicated.  The risks posed by the spread of COVID-19 have made this mission all the more difficult.”

“Joe Biden and the Democrats … they don’t believe in borders. They don’t, therefore, think it is a crisis. They think this is a feature not a bug of their policy. They’ve literally turned detention centers — that are designed to turn people away at our borders — into reception centers. That’s what they’re gonna’ call them. What signal is that going to send? We’ve seen migrants wearing their shirts that say, ‘Biden, let us in.'”

One of Biden’s first acts in office was to do away with President Trump’s Migrant Protection Protocols. These kept illegals in Mexico while they awaited hearings related to their desire to enter the country. Now, we’re right back to the disastrous Obama-era “catch-and-release” that has consistently failed.

It’s too late to stop Biden from being elected. But midterm elections are around the corner. If we can take the House and Senate, we can put a stop to many of his schemes.

On Saturday night, riots erupted in major West Coast cities on the anniversary of the death of Breonna Taylor in a police raid. Taylor was innocent and officers were in the wrong house. The situation was mismanaged, but liberals say it was outright murder — that police hunted her down and killed her because she was black. This, of course, is untrue. Unfortunately, BLM and Antifa use Taylor’s death to periodically start trouble. And that’s exactly what happened on Saturday.

Liberal havens Los Angeles, Seattle, and Portland erupted in violence as “protesters” once again tore their cities apart to show that violence is bad or something. And naturally, these “peace-loving liberals” decided to attack conservatives and police. Here are some scenes from LA:

Seattle was a mess too. The same account shared what was going on there, with Antifa refusing to follow police orders to disperse:

These rabid “protesters” even attacked people who were filming them:

Here you can see Portland covered in graffiti — and all the destruction to which we have become accustomed when we think of Portland:

Despite all the violence, the riots, and the unrest, there were not many arrests. Only 13 were snagged by police in Seattle, for example. Compare this to the Capitol protest, where 315 have been charged with crimes for peacefully walking through a building. One woman lost her life because a cop swears she had explosives in her bag. She was carrying a sweater and scarf.

And notice that the media, which rushed to call Capitol protesters terrorists and more, is not saying the same thing about these people who are using violence to bully the government. This is the very definition of terrorism, but you won’t hear Rachel Maddow say that…will you?

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.
