A recent move from Biden’s Pentagon indicated the administration has no plans to maintain Trump’s peace deal with the Taliban, ensuring 2,500 soldiers a safe return home.

The Pentagon’s top spokesman said the Biden administration has no plans to follow through with Trump’s peace deal, but is open to a renegotiation. 

“We are heavily involved in an attempted resettlement of Trump’s original deal. The Taliban, unfortunately, is not on board with renegotiation. It’s very hard to see a specific path forward before the looming deadline in May.”

The spokesman added the new Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin is hoping to find a logical end to this war without the danger of a swift pull-out. 

He included that the top military brass stationed in Afghanistan agreed the 2,500 troops currently stationed in the Middle East is sufficient to fight the remaining ISIS terrorists in the region.

The Pentagon reiterated that Biden has not yet made any final decisions regarded the troop drawback.

U.S. troops have been stationed in the Middle East since terrorist leader Osama Bin Ladin ordered the attack on the World Trade Center towers in September of 2001. 

The mission in Afghanistan was to destroy the Taliban regime that provided cover for Bin Ladin, and to prevent another terrorist attack from being planned in the country.

U.S. troops successfully completed their mission, but the goalpost was constantly pushed back by the war criminals in the Obama administration. Obama ordered thousands of troops to deploy in the years following the September terrorist attacks. 

Obama left the presidency with nearly 9,000 U.S. troops in Afghanistan and nearly the same amount of NATO soldiers. The Trump administration increased that presence to 14,000, but later ordered a drawback after a successful peace agreement with the Taliban. 

The details of that peace agreement ordered the U.S. to draw down to zero troops by May 2021. In return, Taliban agreed to cease all attacks against the U.S. and its allies, and to end all harboring of all terrorists. The Biden administration claims it will reexamine the terms of the agreement, but chances are slim of a total troop drawback. 

Joe Biden’s White House refused to answer questions on the federal government’s COVID vaccine stockpile. I think we now know why. A shocking new report is claiming that members of Biden’s team have yet to locate at least 20 million doses that shipped across the country last week.

The Saturday report said, “A ‘mystery’ has hampered Team Biden’s ability to locate millions of COVID vaccine doses. These vaccines are what’s preventing the American economy from reopening.”

Under Trump, millions of vaccines of both doses were successfully distributed. Team Biden has attempted to pass blame by saying, “Tracking the vaccine doses is the responsibility of the states and individual healthcare facilities. The administration is only informed when the doses have successfully made it their locations.”

 ‘It’s a mess,’” said one adviser close to the White House. 

From his basement in Delaware, President-Elect Biden vowed to distribute 100 million vaccines in the first 100 days of his presidency. However, the Trump administration was already crushing that goal before Biden even took office.  

After signing one of his many executive orders, a liberal reporter asked Biden if his target should be aimed a little higher, noting “that’s basically where the U.S. was at under Trump.”

The aged Biden responded gruffly, “C’mon, give me a break, man.”

Biden again balked at a reporter’s question when asked about the low bar his administration is setting for vaccine distribution.

Fox News reporter Peter Doocey demanded Biden take his question before his handlers carried him off to rest. 

“Now, wait,” Biden said. “His questions always have an edge to them, and I like that. So go ahead and ask your question.”

Doocey said before Biden cut him off, “You just said within three weeks you plan on reaching your goal of 100 million …”

“We will get there before that, I hope. I misspoke,” a very tongue-tied Biden said. 

Joe Biden ultimately felt the pressure and upped the goal to 1.5 million vaccines administered per day.

With Donald Trump forced to leave office, Democrats must have thought they were done with him for good. In addition to their doomed second impeachment, some Democrats have proposed a bill to prevent federal property from being named after the man. Geez, they hate Trump so much, they don’t even want to see him name on a bench. Talk about hatred.

Despite all their scheming, it’s going to be a long time before we’ve seen the last of Trump. He has already formed an “Office of the Former President,” which will enable him to continue his America first strategy through activism. On top of that, a Florida lawmaker wants to rename a highway after him.

And now, Ohio lawmakers are planning to honor his birthday with an official holiday.

Two Ohio lawmakers are reportedly seeking support from their fellow legislators to mark former President Donald Trump’s birthday in that state as “President Donald J. Trump Day.”

State Reps. Reggie Stoltzfus and Jon Cross reached out to lawmakers in the Ohio House on Friday, asking them to “recognize the accomplishments of [Trump’s] administration, and [show] that the Ohio House believes it is imperative we set aside a day to celebrate one of the greatest presidents in American history.” [Source: Just the News]

These lawmakers want to make June 14, which is also Flag Day, as an official holiday to commemorate the accomplishments of President Trump. They also admit it is a way for Ohio Republicans to show the rest of the country that they are not turning their back on Trump.

In the aftermath of the 2020 Election and the January 6 riots, a number of Republicans abandoned the president. It seems, after it became clear that Trump would not be able to overturn the fraudulent election results, D.C. Republicans were trying to save their own skins. Even though Trump helped restore the party—and get many re-elected—these RINOs were all too quick to abandon him.

With Democrats trying to erase Trump’s entire mark on the country, there seems to be a trend across the country to do the same. After four unprecedented years of success (even during a pandemic), the left wants us to just forget 2016-2020. These lawmakers refuse. They not only want to remember and honor Trump—they want to make sure Ohioans do it every year on his birthday.

We don’t know yet if the rest of the Ohio House will pick up this bill. But if it’s passed. “President Donald J. Trump Day” could become a holiday in the state. That might spark more efforts by state conservatives to honor Trump all over the country. I wouldn’t be surprised to hear about states like Texas, Florida, Indiana, and others coming out with inventive ways to celebrate President Trump.

The fact that it would burn up Democrats, just makes it even better.

Everybody seems to notice the unusual number of executive orders Joe Biden has signed in the first few weeks of his time in office. In the first week, Presidents Bush, Obama, and Trump signed a handle of orders. No more than 2 or 3. Biden? He’s already signed over 30. Yes, you read that right.

It’s hard to believe Biden is doing this in accordance with his vision for the country. Much more likely, these are orders cooked up by the people who pull his strings, the special interest groups that effectively call the shots within the Democratic Party.

Most of the orders, it seems, are aggressive attempts to roll back Trump’s policies. While he can’t undo everything Trump did through EOs, Biden is doing his darndest to pretend like Trump was never president.

Already, his orders have sparked lawsuits from the states. Expect more to come. But now, even the left-wing New York Times is calling on Joe to stop.

In a piece Wednesday headlined “Ease Up on the Executive Actions, Joe,” the paper’s editorial board said the raft of executive orders “is no way to make law.”

“A polarized, narrowly divided Congress may offer Mr. Biden little choice but to employ executive actions or see his entire agenda held hostage. These directives, however, are a flawed substitute for legislation,” the board wrote, with the Senate split 50-50 and Democrats having only a narrow House majority.

The board of the liberal-leaning, national newspaper also argued the directives are “intended to provide guidance to the government and need to work within the discretion granted the executive by existing law or the Constitution. They do not create new law — though executive orders carry the force of law — and they are not meant to serve as an end run around the will of Congress. [Source: Just the News]

How ironic. Way back when President Obama promised to get around Congress with his “phone and pen,” the liberal media applauded him. They were all too happy to see Obama ignore a Republican-held Congress to force his agenda.

But today, even the NYT has to worry about a president that is signing as many orders as his pen can handle. They warned that orders are not how a president of a democratic republic leads. The president is obligated to cooperate with Congress, listen to the will of the people, and submit to the rulings of the courts.

Biden thinks he’s some kind of dictator who can force his agenda through with these executive orders. The massive number he’s already signed is troubling. Does Biden ever bother to consult with Congress? With us?

Unions are ticked off. Democrats in various states are panicking. Now, even the mainstream media is worried. Perhaps Congress needs to get its act together and rein in this runaway president. Or, perhaps the courts need to check his power, before he tramples over them.

Regardless of any of that, it’s clear that liberals are suddenly realizing what a terrible mistake they’ve made.

It’s no secret that Democrats have abused the courts for years to force their agenda. They know that their most extreme goals aren’t supported by even the most liberal Americans (after all, few would support “green” initiatives that destroy thousands of jobs). So, they have relied on liberal judges to impose their policy onto the country, whether you like it or not.

They’ve been doing it since Roe v. Wade.

But thanks to Donald Trump, the left has lost one of its most potent avenues for re-writing the Constitution.

President Trump appointed a record number of judges to federal courts. He outraged Democrats by putting three justices on the Supreme Court, giving it a 6-3 conservative edge. But that was only the tip of the iceberg, compared to the many constitutionally-minded judges he placed all over the country.

But, don’t worry about all that. Because Joe Biden has formed a “commission” that will look for ways around the law to reshape the court system.

“The Biden administration is moving forward with the creation of a bipartisan commission to study reforms to the Supreme Court and the federal judiciary,” according to Politico.

“The commission will be housed under the purview of the White House Counsel’s office and filled out with the behind-the-scenes help of the Biden campaign’s lawyer Bob Bauer,” the article continues.

“Its specific mandate is still being decided. But, in a signal that the commission is indeed moving ahead, some members have already been selected, according to multiple people familiar with the discussions.” [Source: Daily Wire]

Don’t let that “bipartisan” nonsense fool you. This commission won’t have conservatives like Lindsey Graham or Ted Cruz on board. More like con artists like RINOs Susan Collins or Mitt Romney.

Joe Biden makes it seem like our courts are fundamentally broken. No, the legislative branch is broken (has been for decades), the White House is certainly broken (now), and many state governorships are broken.

The one thing that is working reasonably well are the courts, thanks to Trump. But this is one area where Democrats can’t easily erase Trump’s achievements. So, they have to come up with a bogus “commission” to cook up new ways of court-packing.

That’s what this is really about. They don’t like the fact that there are so many Trump-appointed judges deciding on the unconstitutional decisions Biden and his cronies will make in the coming years. The goal of this commission is to “recommend” radical changes to our courts, so that Congress will gleefully push to make.

The irony is, of course, that Congress just can’t reshape the courts with a wave of its hand. Guess who decides if laws are constitutional or not? The courts? Can Congress and the White House just upend centuries of law and tradition, without facing the backlash of the courts themselves? And do they think conservatives across America will take this lying down?

I have a feeling Biden is in for a rude awakening.

We can point to a mountain of reasons Democrats “won” the 2020 Election. The biggest, of course, were last-minute changes that allowed key states to count ballots days after the election. This opened the door to ballot harvest, and other less-than-legal means of collecting enough to give Joe the win. Add to that the use of universal mail-in ballots, triggers (as the left claims) by the COVID panic.

That and other reasons contributed to the mess that was the 2020 Presidential Election, an election many believe was not legitimate.

But things will be better in the future, right? Trump will run again in 2024 and things will be made right? As we’ve said before, if the results of the 2020 election were allowed to stand, Democrats would do the same things for every election in the future.

And if you think we were joking, Nancy Pelosi proved with the most bogus election bill we’ve ever seen.

House Democratic leaders are renewing their push for an election reform bill that stalled in the GOP-led Senate in the last session of Congress…

Under the legislation, Super PACs would be required to publicly disclose their donors, and the bill would “match small donations (up to $200) to participating congressional candidates at a 6-1 ratio.” The bill also establishes a nonpartisan redistricting commission, and it requires automatic voter registration with an opt-out provision for individuals. In addition, the legislation makes Election Day a holiday for federal employees. It also prohibits states from placing restrictions on a voter’s ability to cast mail-in ballots. [Source: Just the News]

Pelosi claims the bill confronts “dark money” that influences elections and simply seeks to prevent voter suppression. She even went on to claim the January 6 riot (which is looking more and more like an Antifa-coordinated affair) was really about voter suppression.

Uh-huh. What she doesn’t mention that this bill also takes redistricting power away from states. It requires automatic voter registration (never a good thing). And it ensures mail-in ballots are here to stay, nation-wide.

If you thought the 2020 election was a fluke, you were dreaming. Democrats are openly declaring they want the “irregularities” that tainted that election to become permanent. More than that, they want to ensure the problems that changed the outcome in states like Pennsylvania and Georgia occur in every state.

You can only interpret this bill as a gross attempt by the left to completely erode our democracy. Redistricting by the federal government? That’s insane, because it lets people like Pelosi determine the districts in states she would otherwise have no influence over (ensuring Democrats have the upper hand in elections).

Automatic voter registration means people who don’t want to vote get registered. Who gets their ballots, then? She also wants to make it harder for states to deny mail-in ballots, which would enable voter fraud worse than what we’ve seen before.

So yeah, if you think things are going back to “normal” anytime soon, you’re dreaming.

When Democrats won the two Georgia runoff elections this January, it created a 50/50 split in the Senate. With Kamala Harris being the “tie-breaker” vote, it gave the left an odd sort of majority.

They really aren’t “in charge,” but they have the votes to get what they want in many circumstances. This made plenty of people worried that Democrats will force their agenda by any means necessary.

You might remember what they were threatening to do prior to the election. They wanted to pack the Supreme Court, add new states to the Union, and eliminate a rule that gave the minority a voice in the upper chamber.

But now it looks like those radical dreams are coming to an end, after two key senators oppose them.

Democratic Sens. Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema will not back the elimination of the filibuster.

“I do not support doing away with the filibuster under any condition. It’s not who I am,” West Virginia’s Manchin said on Monday…

Sinema of Arizona is also unwilling to support nixing the filibuster. According to the Washington Post, a Sinema spokesperson said that the lawmaker is “against eliminating the filibuster, and she is not open to changing her mind about eliminating the filibuster.” [Source: Just the News]

The filibuster is an odd little rule that prevents a majority party from railroading their agenda. Filibusters are used by lawmakers to prevent a vote on a bill they don’t want to be passed—as long as they can keep speaking for the entire duration of a hearing. To overrule a filibuster, the Senate needs to vote with a 60-person majority.

But if that rule was eliminated, Democrats would be able to pass whatever they wanted, without Republican opposition.

It would have taken every Democrat in the Senate to vote on eliminating this rule. With both Manchin and Sinema against it, the left’s chances of ending the filibuster are gone. Mitch McConnell celebrated this news, calling for a “power-sharing” agreement based on 2001.

“I’m glad that two Senate Democrats confirmed they will not vote to end the legislative filibuster,” McConnell stated. “They agree with President Biden and me on protecting the Senate. With this win, we can move forward with a 50-50 power-sharing agreement built on the 2001 precedent.” [Source: Breitbart]

We can wonder why these two Democrats were unwilling to go along with the rest of the party. Chuck Schumer appeared all too happy to mow down Republicans by ending the filibuster. Numerous other Democrats were promising radical changes, thanks to their slim majority. It’s possible both Manchin and Sinema worried about becoming too left-wing, coming from conservative states.

But will be up for re-election soon—and they can’t count on miracle runoffs to save them, like what happened in Georgia.

Whatever the reason, Democrats are going to have a harder time pushing their left-wing agenda onto Americans.

Joe Biden ran on a platform of helping families who are struggling, due to the COVID panic. It would have been easy for him to help them, right? After all, it was Democratic governors who put these families in difficulties in the first place?

Most Americans are suffering because of state-mandated shutdowns. Millions can’t go to work, school, or go about their daily lives. The government came through with a one-time payment, back in April 2020. Since then, Americans have seen little in the form of federal relief.

Biden released a $1.9 trillion spending plan to target COVID. While it does deal with providing more resources for the vaccines, some lawmakers aren’t happy with one particular aspect of the plan. And both Republicans and Democrats are voicing their anger at old Joe.

A group of bipartisan Senators reportedly pushed back on the Biden administration on Sunday, informing the White House that it was providing too much money “to high-income Americans.”

“The senators told the White House officials they support spending more on vaccine distribution but some balked at the stimulus payments, urging the White House to make them targeted toward those in greater need, according to sources on the call. Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) pressed the Biden officials on why families making $300,000 would be eligible and urged a focus on lower-income workers.”

Even Sen. Angus King (I-ME) had issues with the amount of money that Biden was trying to get passed, saying, “This isn’t monopoly money.”

Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) said that “the more targeted the assistance can be where it’s needed most, the more helpful.” [Source: Daily Wire]

Isn’t it funny how a Democrat like Joe Biden is trying to send out checks to people earning six figures? I thought Democrats were the “party of the people?” Weren’t they the ones who daily attacked Trump, claiming (wrongly) his policies only helped the rich?

But suddenly, Joe Biden appears all too eager to hand out relief to those who apparently don’t need it. Let’s be honest, a $2,000 check is nice, but it won’t help families who have been struggling to pay rent for the last nine months. Nor will it replace the small businesses that closed shop for good, or recover what has been lost over 2020.

The least the government can do, though, is move quickly to reopen closed states and provide some measure of relief to working families. Biden claims to be a progressive looking to help regular folks. But, as we predicted, he’s just another corporate puppet looking to help the rich and powerful.

I wonder how many Democrats will get on board to oppose his agenda?

When Donald Trump was in the White House, he repeatedly called on Congress to address major problems in our immigration policy. He wanted a permanent fix for DACA. And he discussed a “pathway to citizenship” for long-time illegals, based on merit. Of course, Congress refused to even negotiate.

Joe Biden has promised what is basically an open borders policy for immigration. He not only wants to increase the number of migrants that enter the country, his plans would look the other way to those who come here against the rules. This week, he released a plan for current aliens that would provide a fast-track to citizenship for 11-22 million people.

Democrats appear all too happy to embrace this plan, that ignores current immigration rules and does little to reform the system. But, it seems, key senators—who once supported amnesty—are now opposing it.

Key Senate Republicans, many of whom have supported amnesties in the past, are rejecting President Joe Biden’s plan to give amnesty to about 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the United States that also includes increases to legal immigration…

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), a former member of the infamous “Gang of Eight,” which sought an amnesty for illegal aliens in 2013, shot down Biden’s amnesty saying congress must aid Americans and the growing threat of China before prioritizing foreign nationals.

“Before we deal with immigration we need to deal with COVID, make sure everyone has the chance to find a good job, and confront the threat from China,” Rubio said in a statement. [Source: Breitbart]

Rubio said a “blanket amnesty” plan for people in American “unlawfully” is not the solution, especially as it neglects hurting Americans who need to go back to work. That is actually the opposite of what Rubio’s wanted in the past, as he previously supported plans to help aliens. It appears his priorities have changed in the face of COVID.

Joining Rubio is Lindsey Graham, who also supported the “Gang of Eight” plan, says Biden’s plan won’t pass in the Senate. Instead, he said Biden should focus on a DACA deal, given the current “environment.”

Tom Cotton also opposed Biden’s plan, warning Republicans in the House and Senate not to support it. Even Mitch McConnell called the plan a “rough day one for American workers.”

In the age of COVID, little has been done to address immigration. It’s further proof that the government’s response to the disease is not sustainable in the long run. You can’t shut down travel for good—that includes immigration. The nation needs to function, as well as provide a plan to deal with potential newcomers.

On top of that, with so many Americans still struggling to find work, the last thing they need is for immigrants to come in and take what few jobs are available. For a president to want to fast-track such a plan suggests he’s not even thinking about American workers.

Would be pretty much the case for Biden.

When an administration first enters office, they want to hit the ground running. Some of their most important and lasting decisions happen in those early months. It’s when most Americans are watching, expecting all the campaign promises to be fulfilled.

Joe Biden made plenty of promises during his campaign. In fact, he recently revealed a whopping $1.9 trillion measure to—among other things—battle the COVID pandemic that hit our shores a year ago. Biden claims he’d do a better job of ending the crisis than Trump did, despite Trump’s efforts to provide 2 vaccines in record time.

But Biden is already hitting a major snag in his agenda. Even though he has a Democrat-controlled Congress, they won’t provide him with a billion for months.

Democrat lawmakers expect to fail on providing another round of coronavirus relief until March despite President Joe Biden outlining a $1.9 trillion relief measures last week, Punchbowl News founder Jake Sherman reported Wednesday.

“In @PunchbowlNews AM — Democrats do not expect to be able to send @JoeBiden a Covid [coronavirus] relief bill until early March,” Sherman reported the morning of the inauguration…

While Democrats have identified additional coronavirus relief as a legislative priority, they are also focused on convicting Trump in the forthcoming Senate impeachment trial, with Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) expressing hope they will be able to prevent Trump from running for office in the future. [Source: Breitbart]

Sen. Chuck Schumer admitted his priority is not helping Americans through one of the worst crises to reach our country, but to attack a man no longer in office.

Schumer revealed the Senate would hold an impeachment trial against Trump, even though he’s out of the White House. The Democrat revealed it was only about preventing him from running again, even though nobody knows if Trump will.

Keep in mind, the Senate does not have the votes to convict Trump, not even close. With each passing day, it becomes even less likely that any Republicans will vote to convict a man out of office (Democrats need 67 senators to vote to convict).

Yet, Schumer and Democrats in the House are focusing on this, not on relief that could help millions.

And they want us to believe they care about America?

Has all this been a game for Democrats? Do they really view government as just a playground where they fool around in a sandbox, handing out favors to their supporters and attacking their enemies? Is all the rhetoric about helping people in need just talk?

What else can we conclude, when Congress focuses on their vendetta against Trump, instead of doing anything remotely beneficial for the country?

Make no mistake, Democrats are doing this because they blame Trump for the January 6 riot. They didn’t care about riots in Portland, Seattle, New York, Minneapolis, or anywhere else. Just the one that affected their building. The one that forced them to huddle and hide like terrified mice under desks. That’s what they really care about—saving their own skins.

The rest of us? Oh, I guess we can wait until March.

But can you?
