  • Black History Biden: Veep calls for 'emancipation' of people's wealth

    Washington Examiner ^ | FEBRUARY 25, 2015 | 8:10 AM | BY PAUL BEDARD
    Vice President Joe Biden used a Black History Month event at his official residence Monday night to decry the rich, both white and black, for stunting economic growth and suggested that “emancipation” is in order. “A lot of wealthy white and black people aren't bad but they control 1 percent of the economy and this cannot stand,” Biden told about 100 guests, including past civil rights activists and NBC weatherman Al Roker. “It's not fair because the business experts are saying that concentration of wealth is stunting growth. So let's do something that's worthy of emancipation,” said Biden, according to...

To say she looked a bit uncomfortable would be an understatement of biblical proportions.As we noted in the previous story, Biden has a long history of having roaming hands, and the good people over at The Washington Free Beacon have complied a hilarious video featuring every cringe-worthy, uncomfortable grope fest Biden’s participated in for your viewing enjoyment.Happy Friday!

    The Obama administration’s new excuse to explain why Vice-President Joe Biden will be “out of the country” when Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu addresses Congress next month is that he has to attend a Panama government inauguration – that occurred last July. The vice president of the United States normally attends joint sessions of Congress, but National Security Council Spokesperson Bernadette Meehan stated last month, “As a matter of long-standing practice and principle, we do not see heads of state or candidates in close proximity to their elections…. The President has been clear about his opposition to Congress passing new legislation...

    So what could be creepier than inappropriately placing your hands on the wife of a new cabinet official? How about inappropriately placing your hand on the leg of a gruff police chief during a solemn ceremony? Joe Biden did both but the first act is all over the news and the classic photo of the latter was buried by the mainstream media. Why? The reason seems to be timing. It is okay now to have a laugh at the expense of Biden since his days in office are numbered and few, perhaps not even Biden himself, believe he has...

On today's Morning Joe, Mika declared that Biden was not being "creepy" when for 20 seconds he put his hands on Stephanie Carter during her husband Ash's swearing in as Defense Secretary. For good measure, Mika claimed that Stephanie Carter was "fine" with Biden's unseemly ministrations. Has Brzezinski spoken with Mrs. Carter, or is she showing off her skills for a second career as Real Psychic Mika? View the video here.

    EXCERPT In this case, Biden said at the ceremony today he has known Ash Carter for years and, when you watch the full video (click above), it doesn't appear entirely obvious that he makes Stephanie Carter uncomfortable. In fact, she nods her head in agreement after Biden talks to her. If you watch for more than a Vine's-length, the ceremony goes on normally after the whisper seen 'round the web.

    The United States must ensure that immigrants are fully included in the fabric of American society to prevent violent ideologies from taking root at home, Vice President Joe Biden said Tuesday as he opened a White House summit on countering extremism and radicalization. Joining local elected officials, community leaders and religious figures, Biden portrayed the U.S. as far better positioned than Europe, thanks to what he called America's successful record at cultural integration. He said societies must offer immigrants an "affirmative alternative" to extremism, cautioning that military force alone could not address the threat. Across the Atlantic, deadly terrorist attacks...

    Tuesday, at Defense Sec. Ash Carter‘s swearing-in ceremony, Biden got all touchy feely with Carter’s wife, Stephanie. From the pictures, it looks like he’s whispering sweet nothings into her right ear. He’s also getting a good whiff of her shampoo. Let’s give him the benefit of the doubt: Perhaps he was trying to be comforting after her spill on the ice at the Pentagon this morning while she was accompanying her husband on his first day on the job.

    When Iraqi tribal leaders came to D.C. looking for help against ISIL, the White House refused. Then the former president made a call. Late in the evening of Sunday, January 18, an eleven-member delegation of tribal leaders from Iraq’s western Anbar Province arrived in Washington, D.C. Just as their plane was touching down, Islamic State units back in Iraq attacked the compound of one of the delegation’s senior leaders, Sheik Ahmed Abu Risha, killing nine Iraqi police officers and wounding 28 of the sheik’s guards. A nearby Iraqi military unit failed to respond to repeated calls for help. The brutal...

The two sides insisted that the meetings were informal. But it reportedly revolved around security matters and the Zionist Union’s defense strategy, Israeli media reported.

    There are understandable differences of opinion between the American and Israel leaders on the issue of Islamist terrorism. It is wholly appropriate and desirable that they should be heard in the U.S. Congress. It is therefore painful that some honorable Democratic members of Congress should be so misguided as to declare that they will not attend the Israeli leader’s address. John Lewis (Georgia), a hero of the civil rights movement, G.K. Butterfield (North Carolina), chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus, and Eric Blumenauer (Oregon) are among those who are engaging in what is tantamount to a boycott of Israel. According...

Biden and Opposition leader Yitzhak Herzog, head of the Labor party, met on the sidelines of the Munich Security Conference. The Likud party was incensed at the meeting between Herzog and Biden, which also came as leaders from the left, including Herzog himself, were busy attacking Netanyahu and blaming him for Biden’s boycott of the speech. “Buji’s behavior in Munich is an irresponsible crossing of red lines,” the party...

The vice president’s office on Friday confirmed the plans to skip the March 3 speech. “We are not ready to announce details of his trip yet, and normally our office wouldn’t announce this early, but the...

    AS we were reminded last summer when thousands of unaccompanied children showed up on our southwestern border, the security and prosperity of Central America are inextricably linked with our own. The economies of El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras remain bogged down as the rest of the Americas surge forward. Inadequate education, institutional corruption, rampant crime and a lack of investment are holding these countries back. Six million young Central Americans are to enter the labor force in the next decade. If opportunity isn’t there for them, the entire Western Hemisphere will feel the consequences.

She messes up small talk and doesn’t have her head in the game. Yesterday, January 6, was sort of a real-life version of this. While the man who in real life is a heartbeat away from the presidency also messed up small talk, he was almost too locked in. He was extremely attentive. Particularly to underage girls. And,...

Joseph Biden is the first Catholic occupant of the White House since JFK, 51 years and a couple weeks ago. And here he is being presented with an image of St. Peter's Cross. That's a Catholic symbol. Protestants don't use it at all; they either think it's satanic or Catholic. So I think that it is significant enough for a sort of meditation. I imagine that Simon Peter had...

"It's frozen the program, it's given us a shot for a peaceful solution," he said. "I tell you, I think it's a less than even shot but it's a shot,...

As the president must know, this delay gives the revolutionary jihadist regime everything it needs: time; further preservation and legitimization of its nuclear program; continued sanctions relief, including $700 million per month from the United States; and no pressure to acknowledge, much less repudiate, its status as the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism (i.e., the reason why its acquisition of nuclear weapons is — or...

Impeachment talk has swirled around Washington since the president announced that an executive order overhauling America's immigration system is imminent.

    Many children have imaginary friends. But few of those BFFs are called Joe Biden.... ....Earlier this year, Avery's grandmother, Becky Burke, posted a message on Biden's website, informing him of his littlest fan and their regular 'chats', according to KCCI News 8.... Then, last Wednesday night, she answered the phone - and Biden was on the other end. 'He said, "This is Joe Biden" and I said, "Who the hell is this?' said Ms Burke.
