The jig is up and creepy grampa joe is exposed -

While 49 percent said yes, 48 percent said no. When respondents were asked weeks before, between September 7-10, 49 percent said yes, and only 45 percent said no, handing Biden three more points of less confidence in his mental soundness on Sunday.

On the question asking if respondents believe “Joe Biden is a strong leader, or not?” only 45 percent said yes, down four points from October of 2020. Fifty-three percent said Biden is not a strong leader, up eight points since October 2020.

The poll also asked, “Do you think the country has become more or less united since Joe Biden took office?” Fifty-four percent of the country is less united, while 37 percent said the country is more united since Biden took office.

The poor polling numbers on Biden’s mental soundness come as the Foreign Relations Committee’s ranking member, Sen. James Risch (R-ID), on September 14 questioned who is in charge of the Biden-Harris administration. “There’s real questions right now as to who’s making the decisions,” he questioned State Department Secretary Antony Blinken.

“We know for a fact that the President of the United States is somewhat disadvantaged here, in that someone is calling shots. He can’t even speak without someone in the White House censoring it or signing off on it,” Risch explained about numerous incidents when the White House feed was cut mid-sentence by “a puppeteer act” while Biden was speaking during a scheduled event.

Hmm. The hate crimes perpetrated against Asians were blamed Trump for calling the worse world wide pandemic in a century the ‘China Virus’. Looks like these were not hate crimes at all. It’s were the money is. Like walking banks....or so the criminals thought. Easy marks, more bang for the buck.

Punched in the mouth, more like kicked in the balls by a punter -

There's a famous quip by boxer Mike Tyson - that "everybody has a plan until they get punched in the mouth" - and it's applicable to politics.

Joe Biden started his presidency full of plans - for Covid-19 relief, infrastructure investment and expanding government safety nets.

He has spent the past month and a half getting punched in the mouth.

Mr Biden's public approval ratings have tumbled into net-negative territory for the first time, as a chaotic withdrawal from Afghanistan, a spike in inflation and concerns about the spread of the Covid-19 delta variant have undercut perceptions of the Biden administration's competency, particularly among independent voters.

Border Patrol Chief Forced Out By Biden Issues Dire Warning About Who Is Sneaking Into America

‘Amid homeless surge, California spent only $2M of $316M homeless COVID relief allocation: audit’
California Gov. Gavin Newsom's state housing arm "did not take critical steps to ensure" that federal pandemic relief aid for the homeless "promptly benefited the vulnerable population for which it was intended," the auditor found

“The watchdog also found the state waited 14 months to hire a contractor to manage the ESG-CV program after the CDHCD realized it "lacked the capacity" to manage the program.

In addition, the auditor found the CDHCD still has yet to develop a formal plan, implement any procedures to manage the contract, or oversee disbursed funds to determine their effectiveness.

"The department is not collecting the information needed to measure the effectiveness of the state's use of these funds, and it does not have plans to evaluate the impact and value of the CoCs' projects in addressing or mitigating the homelessness crisis," the audit found.

Noting that the CDHCD "oversees more than 10 programs that have administered billions of dollars to address homelessness over the last three fiscal years," the auditor expressed doubts about the department's future role in alleviating the ongoing crisis.

"Taken as a whole, the department's delayed actions related to the ESG‑CV funds raise serious concerns about its role as a statewide leader in addressing California's homelessness crisis," the auditor concluded.”

It’s the rare poll that makes an entire party sit up and take notice. The new Iowa poll is one of those polls.

Just 31% of Iowans approved of how Joe Biden is handling his duties as president while a whopping 62% disapprove. Biden’s disapproval number is below the lowest ever measured by ace pollster J. Ann Selzer for former presidents Donald Trump (35%) and Barack Obama (36%).

“This is a bad poll for Joe Biden, and it’s playing out in everything that he touches right now,” Selzer told the Des Moines Register.

Biden’s approval on pulling American troops out of Afghanistan stands at a meager 22%. Approval for his handling of the Covid-19 pandemic is now just 36% among Iowans.

This poll is rightly understood as a blaring red alarm for not just Biden but especially down-ballot Democrats – in Iowa and elsewhere – who will be running in the 2022 midterms.

And quotes

Insight: “Those who created this country chose freedom. With all of its dangers. And do you know the riskiest part of that choice they made? They actually believed that we could be trusted to make up our own minds in the whirl of differing ideas. That we could be trusted to remain free, even when there were very, very seductive voices — taking advantage of our freedom of speech — who were trying to turn this country into the kind of place where the government could tell you what you can and cannot do.” —Nat Hentoff (1925-2017)

Just don’t ask me how: “I stand here today for the first time in 20 years with the United States not at war. We’ve turned the page.” —Joe Biden

Race bait: “I urge President Biden and Secretary Mayorkas to immediately put a stop to these [illegal immigrant] expulsions… We cannot continue these hateful and xenophobic Trump policies that disregard our refugee laws.” —Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer

The BIG Lie: “We have reiterated that our borders are not open.” —Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas

Grand delusions: “Should we be looking at the budget of Department of Homeland Security? Because I was not aware that whips, which come from the slave era, slavery era, were part of the package that we issue to any sort of law enforcement or government-sanctioned personnel.” —MSNBC’s Joy Reid

Dumb and dumber: “Thank God for President Biden, for putting us on a different course where over a 150,000 people had been fully vaccinated.” —House Speaker Nancy Pelosi

Dezinformatsiya: “Last week, a 47-year-old man stormed into a law firm in China’s Wuhan city and shot dead a lawyer who he had ‘some disputes with,’ according to Chinese state media. … The fatal shooting shocked many in China, which has some of the world’s strictest gun control laws — so much so, that some people thought initial reports were about yet another American shooting. … China’s gun control policy is broadly popular among the public, which — like many in the international community — views US gun crime with bewilderment and horror.” —CNN

Who’d a thunk it? “BREAKING: The Taliban announce a list of deputy ministers, failing to appoint any women, doubling down on an all-male, all-Taliban government in Afghanistan.” —Associated Press (“A fundamental problem of liberalism is a denial of the reality of evil, a natural consequence of which is the pursuit of naïve visions of human self-redemption and salvation. The Taliban are innately evil. That is what liberals refuse to accept. Hence, ‘breaking news’ like this.” —Darrell B. Harrison)

Non compos mentis: “‘Parents’ rights’ has emerged as a centerpiece of the Trump-era GOP — an aggrieved rallying cry against mandating vaccines, masks in schools, or the teaching of content that parents find objectionable, including material on race, slavery and other so-called divisive concepts.” —Jennifer C. Berkshire in The Nation (“The implication here being that someone else has a superseding ‘right’ over your child.” —Grant Addison)

Get Out of Jail Free card: “We don’t need the fun police to come in and try and micromanage and tell us what we should or shouldn’t be doing. … I got up and started dancing because I was feeling the spirit and I wasn’t thinking about a mask.” —San Francisco Mayor London “Break My Own COVID Rules” Breed

And last… “Thousands upon thousands of people are pouring into the country every day illegally and the administration responsible for handling it is blaming border patrol for ‘whipping’ them. I’m honestly not surprised anymore.” —Caleb Hull

The ACLU thinks it can rewrite Ginsburgs quote to make it woke, talk about hubris!

The correct quote, from Ginsburg's written responses to U.S. senators during her confirmation hearing in 1993, reads as follows: "The decision whether or not to bear a child is central to a woman’s life, to her well-being and dignity. It is a decision she must make for herself. When Government controls that decision for her, she is being treated as less than a fully adult human responsible for her own choices."

The American Civil Liberties Union, in the act of celebrating the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and fighting restrictions on abortion, altered a famous Ginsburg quote to remove the word "woman" and replace female pronouns with the singular "they."

Conservatives and liberals remarked upon the move on Twitter, with some accusing the ACLU of "literally erasing women."

"The decision whether or not to bear a child is central to a [person's] life, to [their] well-being and dignity… When the government controls that decision for [people], [they are] being treated as less than a fully adult human responsible for [their] own choices," the ACLU posted in a photo on Twitter on the one-year anniversary of Ginsburg's death on Saturday.

"Russiagate was a daisy-chain of deceptions. The Clinton campaign systematically planted phony stories about things like the Trump-Alfa business, the pee tape/blackmail tale, and Carter Page’s supposed role as a Trump-Russia conduit; the FBI went along with the fiction that inquiries launched on these matters did not originate as paid research from the Clinton campaign; and a parade of news media figures were culpable either as dupes or witting participants in these frauds, which in the case of the Alfa stunt was executed in a “hurry” to affect a presidential election."
