Biden continues to hide out

Published

on

It has 43 days since Biden has been in office and has not held a press conference. Let’s compare Biden’s length of time to former presidents, President George W. Bush took only 34 days, President Barack Obama took only 21 days, and finally President Donald Trump took only 28 days. Other Presidents seemed to move quickly to meet the press with progress and goals for the country. President Biden just continues to stay out of the limelight.

The daily press briefings have resumed, and Jen Psaki has been steering clear of certain topics, promising to circle back. It seems like she is just giving reporters a run-around, and is often caught with a blank stare of confusion.

Given that President Biden has kept out of the spotlight it seems he cant create any controversary. It seems like that is the plan they had all along.

Anti Trump

Back to Biden’s 43 days of no press conference, he continues to lay low. His leftist policies continue to persevere. Biden’s anti-Trump tactic that got him into the White House in the first place. No tweeting, no controversial topics, and avoid the public.

He has been pushing leftist agendas that have resulted in, “34 executive orders, 13 presidential memoranda, 16 proclamations, and three notices,” according to Ballotpedia.

The orders have been a radical path — pushing transgender into athletics, funding foreign abortions, putting an end to immigration restrictions, canceling the XL pipeline, and also resuming the non-treaty the Paris Climate Accords.

All these orders are completely controversial, and pushing this presidency to the far left. The support of the media and the hiding out as worked for Biden.

Not completely AWOL

The President has done a few limited interviews. Keeping it limited has kept them easy to control and to avoid saying the wrong things.

His interviews were simple things like the Super Bowl interview with questions about his past in football. He also did a People Magazine interview about how him and his wife have kept the marriage alive for 43 years.

With interviews such as these where is reasoning for Biden to change? He can continue to hide out, and wait for the COVID-19 relief bill — that mostly only bails out leftist causes, not people who are suffering from the pandemic.

In August, CNN editor Chris Cillizza wrote an article calling Biden out. It was headlined: “It’s long past time for Joe Biden to start taking questions from the press.” The article bashed Biden for taking 48 days to meet with the press.

These 48 days when he was only running for president, and now 43 when he has the job. The press seems to just fall over with these leftist orders.

Assault on The Second Amendment

Biden stands behind House gun background check bills that would stiffen restrictions

The Biden administration stated Monday that they “look forward” to working with Congress to fortify the federal gun background check system and to implement “commonsense” steps to reduce gun violence, persuading for support of the House to pass two measures that would “close existing loopholes” in the system.

“Gun violence is a public health crisis,” the Office of Management and Budget had stated on Monday.

OMB claims that the federal gun background check system “is a proven tool to reduce gun violence and save lives.”

Rep. Mike Thompson, D-Calif., and 131 joint sponsors this month brought in H.R. 8, the Bipartisan Background Checks Act of 2021, which would warrant a background check for every firearm sale.

The legislation would use the present-day background check process in the U.S. to “ensure individuals prohibited from gun possession are not able to obtain firearms.”

And Rep. James Clyburn, D-S.C., and 91 cosponsors brought in the Enhanced Background Checks Act of 2021, which would further fortify background check procedures before a federal firearms licensee may transfer a firearm to a person who is not a licensee.

The White House press secretary Jen Psaki, who last month called gun control a “priority” for the Biden administration.

Psaki claims gun control is “a priority to him on a personal level.”

The National Rifle Association recently pledged to resist any pressure from Biden: “It will be up to these millions of law-abiding gun owners, and millions of NRA members, to make their voices heard in opposition to any infringement upon their constitutional rights.”

Biden said, “Today, I am calling on Congress to enact commonsense gun law reforms, including requiring background checks on all gun sales, banning assault weapons and high-capacity magazines, and eliminating immunity for gun manufacturers who knowingly put weapons of war on our streets.”

“We owe it to all those we’ve lost and to all those left behind to grieve to make a change,” Biden said. “The time to act is now.”

Manchin promises to block Biden infrastructure bill

Manchin said he won’t pass Biden’s next legislative proposal using reconciliation if Republicans aren’t included

Senator Joe Manchin, a democrat, has pledged to block Biden’s infrastructure bill if it does not gain any support from any Republicans.

In an interview with Axios that aired Sunday, Manchin said he’ll insure GOP lawmakers have more of a voice on Biden’s next package. The previous package they did notwas the nearly $2 trillion coronavirus relief package that Democrats are passing via budget reconciliation, which requires only a simple majority.

“I’m not going to do it through reconciliation,” Manchin, D-W.Va., said. “I am not going to get on a bill that cuts them out completely before we start.”

Manchin, one of the most powerful members of the 50-50 Senate, said he believed that it would be possible to get 10 Republicans to support an infrastructure bill and reach the 60-vote threshold needed to avoid a filibuster: “I sure do.”

President Biden is said to be laying the foundation down for another major economic relief package, with senior Democratic officials proposing as much as $3 trillion in new spending on a jobs and infrastructure bill that would become the foundation of Biden’s “Build Back Better” program, according to The Washington Post, citing three people familiar with the matter.

It’s uncertain what the measure would entail, but on the campaign trail, Biden emphasized the need for new infrastructure investments and measures to combat climate change, as well as ways to restore the manufacturing industry and revamp housing, education and health care.

The White House has refused to comment on what the next big legislative priority is.

The infrastructure proposal is sure to get a lot of criticism from Republicans, and possibly some moderate Democrats, who are worried about the excessive level of government spending.

The legislation would be in addition to the $1.9 trillion relief plan that congressional Democrats are set to pass by mid-March, as well as the nearly $4 trillion in stimulus measures under former President Donald Trump.

The nation’s deficit totaled a record $3.1 trillion for the 2020 fiscal year, and the national debt is on course to hit $28 trillion.

Manchin said the infrastructure bill can be big, as long as it’s paid for with tax increases, including raising the corporate tax rate to 25% from 21% “at least” and repealing portions of the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act that disproportionately benefit wealthy Americans.

He said he would start by demanding that the package be 100% paid for. Otherwise, he said, the nation’s soaring debt could trigger “a tremendous deep recession that could lead into a depression if we’re not careful.”

YouTube to possibly reinstate Trump

once ‘risk of violence has decreased’

On Thursday, Youtube’s chief executive officer announced that the company plans to reinstate former President Donald Trump’s channel once an “elevated risk of violence” associated with him has ended.

The video-sharing platform, which is owned by Google, first issued a temporary suspension of the then-president’s account on Jan. 12, following the riot at the U.S. Capitol. Since then, his suspension has become permanent.

Now the YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki is suggesting that Trump will be permitted to return to the platform once she and other company leaders asses that the risk level has decreased.

“We will lift the suspension of the Donald Trump channel when we determine the risk of violence has decreased,” she stated at an event that was hosted by the Atlantic Council, according to Politico.

YouTube will reportedly rely on a mix of indicators to determine the level of violence, including statements by government officials, law enforcement preparedness, and the presence of violent rhetoric on its own platform.

Wojcicki claims the recent warning from Capitol Police about a potential militia attack on the Capitol on March 4th, which caused the House to adjourn Wednesday, constituted what she called an “elevated risk of violence.”

“We will turn the account back on, but when we see reduced law enforcement in capitals in the U.S. and fewer [threat] warnings,” she said. “Those would be signals to us [that it is] safe to turn the channel back on.”

The statement from YouTube may appear to indicate the company is going to end its censorship of Trump, supporters shouldn’t get their hopes up just yet.

On Thursday, the day Wojcicki made the statement, YouTube deleted videos of Trump’s speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference from its platform and even suspended one popular channel, Right Side Broadcasting Network, that chose to post it.

These actions don’t exactly indicate that YouTube will be allowing Trump back on the platform. It could also mean they are planning to string the suspension along, and they have set up framework to do so.
