  • Debt ceiling: Biden admits progressive Democrats might not get on board with deal (usual commie suspects)

    Washington Examiner ^ | 5/29/23 | Ryan King
    resident Joe Biden admitted on Monday he may not be able to win over all members of his party after striking a debt ceiling deal with House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA). Progressive Democrats, including Congressional Progressive Caucus Chairwoman Pramila Jayapal (D-WA), as well as Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Jamaal Bowman (D-NY), and others, have been critical of Biden for working with McCarthy to find a deal. After striking a deal with McCarthy over the weekend, Biden was asked on Monday if the Congressional Progressive Caucus would get on board with the deal. "I don't know," he told a CBS reporter...
  • Is 80-year-old Joe Biden really fit for four more years? After a first term marked by gaffes and falls, doctors tell they fear for health of President who has suffered two brain aneurysms and has a heart issue - raises his risk of dementia

    Medical experts have raised concerns about whether President Joe Biden is fit to serve another term after the 80-year-old officially launched his reelection campaign. They fear Biden, who would be 86 at the end of a second stint in the White House, is already showing signs of 'cognitive impairment' and that the stress of another presidency could deteriorate his condition further and raise the risk of an on-screen accident. The President's first term has been marked by a series of high-profile gaffes, falls and visible signs of disorientation - including stumbling up the steps of Air Force One and falling...

    While inflation has come down slightly since record highs last year, nearly half of American voters feel President Biden's policies are hurting them and 83% of voters feel the economy is "only fair/poor." On "America's Newsroom" on Friday, Forbes Media chairman Steve Forbes argued that the state of the economy will cost President Biden the 2024 Democratic nomination. STEVE FORBES: I think what's happening with the economy, even though it's not officially in a recession, it's sort of the economic equivalent of walking pneumonia. Not enough to put you in bed yet, but just dragging you down, draining the energy....

    The Biden Administration has demanded that the Israeli government drop judicial reform from its agenda in exchange for the normalization of the Jewish State's relations with Saudi Arabia, Channel 12 News reported this evening (Tuesday). According to the report, the Saudis are demanding the resumption of peace talks with the Palestinian Authority, while the US was the party to raise the demand over the judicial reforms in exchange for mediating the normalization talks. On Sunday, it was reported that Bahrain had been mediating negotiations between Israel and Saudi Arabia on aspects of normalization, such as allowing direct flights between the...

    Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen reaffirmed June 1 as the hard deadline to raise the debt ceiling on Monday, saying she expects the United States will be unable to pay all of its bills in a little over a week. If an agreement isn’t reached to prevent the United States from defaulting on its debt, the country could descend into economic disarray, affecting millions of Americans from investors to Social Security beneficiaries. Nevertheless, consumers can take steps to safeguard their finances from some of the effects of the crisis. There isn’t much precedent on what to do in case of a...

    Iran's intelligence minister said a "terrorist" group linked to Israel was arrested on the western borders of Iran on Sunday, Reuters reported, citing the Iranian semi-official Nour News agency. "A terrorist group associated with the Zionist regime, which entered the country from the western borders, was arrested," said Esmail Khatib. The statement comes amid heightening tensions between Iran and its arch-enemy Israel over Tehran's nuclear program. Earlier Sunday, Iran International reported that Shahryar Haidari, a member of the Iranian parliament's National Security Committee, said the US suggested holding talks with Tehran without the presence of other JCPOA partners, Iran International,...
  • Biden bets DeSantis’ ‘Florida blueprint’ will help him flip the Sunshine State and win reelection

    Biden advisers believe they can hold up what the GOP governor calls his “Florida blueprint” as a warning to the country about what would happen if DeSantis or any other Republican wins the White House in 2024 – a human embodiment, essentially, of Biden’s argument that “MAGA extremism” goes beyond Donald Trump. And along the way, they believe the Florida governor’s record may give them a chance at the state’s 30 electoral votes. The Biden campaign has quietly started putting campaign cash and efforts into Florida – and will decide in the coming months whether to put more – as...

    resident Joe Biden tripped as he walked down the stairs of the Itsukushima Shrine on Friday in his rush to greet Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida. The president was running late - all the other G7 leaders had arrived on Miyajima Island and were waiting on him to begin the tour of the holy site - when he stumbled and caught himself before he fell. He and Kishida continued on as if the slip didn't happen, joining the rest of the heads of state to see the iconic 'floating' torii gate. The evening on the famous island, known for its...

    NASHUA, N.H. — Top Democrats are scrambling for ways to avoid a catastrophe in New Hampshire in which Joe Biden may not appear on the primary ballot, ceding the first unofficial contest of 2024 to a fringe candidate. The bizarre predicament is one of the president’s own making, after he pushed for changes to the party’s presidential nominating calendar that stripped the Granite State of its first-in-the-nation primary. The move was designed to reward South Carolina, which catapulted Biden to the nomination in 2020. But there’s a state law requiring New Hampshire’s contest be held a week before any others,...

    US President Joe Biden on Tuesday denounced antisemitism and reiterated his support for Israel, as he spoke at a White House event in honor of Jewish Heritage Month. Biden condemned antisemitism as a “stain on the soul of America”, and noted that it was the 2017 white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, where protesters carried torches and chanted phrases including “Jews will not replace us,” that convinced him to run for the White House in 2020. “That’s when I knew we had to stay engaged in the work of our time. Hate never goes away,” Biden said, before pointing out that...

    The Biden administration on Thursday released a sweeping plan to curb fossil fuel-fired power plant emissions, sparking concerns from experts about future U.S. power grid reliability. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) plan - which would curb nationwide power sector emissions by about 617 million metric tons through 2042 - forces electric power providers to slash pollution by about 90% over the next two decades. To achieve such aggressive emissions reductions, power plants must adopt carbon capture, a nascent and costly technology, or shut down. "Electricity in America is becoming increasingly intermittent, and it's because we are transitioning rapidly towards unreliable...

    President Joe Biden is facing the prospect of impeachment by Republicans in Congress amid as-yet unspecified allegations of a "criminal scheme" involving bribery and an unnamed foreign individual. Senator Chuck Grassley and Representative James Comer, both Republicans, are demanding that the FBI produce an unclassified record "alleging a criminal scheme involving then-Vice President Joe Biden and a foreign national." Comer, who is chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Accountability, has issued a subpoena to the FBI seeking an unclassified FD-1023 document that a whistleblower has told the Republicans exists. The FBI was given until May 10 to comply...

    Arizona Independent Sen. Kyrsten Sinema attacked the White House on Sunday for doing nothing regarding the border crisis despite having two years to plan for the Title 42 mandate to expire. The pandemic-era policy, which originally allowed the U.S. to expel certain migrants as a health mandate, is set to expire on Thursday. Even with the policy in place, the Biden administration has faced record levels of illegal border crossing since taking office in Jan. 2021. "Face the Nation" host Margaret Brennan spoke with Sinema on the border crisis as well as her proposed bill to continue a similar policy...

    Rep. Comer sent a message to the DOJ during the interview, not to indict Hunter Biden before Wednesday. “My message to the Department of Justice is very loud and clear,” said Comer. “Do not indict Hunter Biden before Wednesday when you had the opportunity to see the evidence that the House Oversight Committee will produce with respect to the web of LLCs, with respect to the number of adversarial countries that this family influence peddled in. This is not just about the President’s son. This is about the entire Biden family, including the president of the United States.”

    President Biden complained about "negative" news coverage, suggesting it's to blame for his bad polling during an interview on MSNBC. "You're talking about real, practical solutions… Why do you think you don't get more credit for it? Why do you think your polling is where it is?" MSNBC's Stephanie Ruhle asked on Friday. Biden pushed back at the premise of the question, telling Ruhle presidents who've won re-election had bad polling numbers prior. "Put polling aside then," Ruhle said. "Sentiment in this country, despite all these wins, is not very good." "All they've heard is negative news for three years....

    Young voters played a critical role in delivering Joe Biden to the White House in 2020. But as his reelection campaign kicks off, leading activists are uneasy about vouching for the president and concerned the administration could squander years of momentum In 2020, Biden’s campaign aggressively courted younger, progressive voters as part of a strategy to fire up the grassroots and bridge the divisions that roiled the party in the run-up to Donald Trump’s election in 2016. More than three years later, though, the relationship between the White House and young organizers is at a crossroads. The president and congressional...

    DETROIT – Leaders of the United Auto Workers are withholding a reelection endorsement for President Joe Biden until the union’s concerns about the auto industry’s transition to all-electric vehicles are addressed, according to a Tuesday letter sent by UAW President Shawn Fain to union staff. Fain, who was elected union president in March, said the UAW wants a “just transition” for workers. He argues that is currently not the case as automakers invest billions of dollars, with the support of taxpayer money, to move from traditional vehicles to EVs. “The federal government is pouring billions into the electric vehicle transition,...
