FLASHBACK: Biden Said ‘You Can’t Legislate By Executive Orders Unless You’re A Dictator’

“I have this strange notion. We are a democracy.”

This video from the 15th October 2020 speaks for itself.

During a town hall broadcast by ABC News just over a fortnight before the election, Joe Biden was discussing his tax proposals when he declared that in order to see them implemented he would need votes and approval from Congress.

“I have this strange notion. We are a democracy,” Biden sardonically declared, pointing out that “Some of my Republican friends, and some of my Democratic friends occasionally say ‘well if you can’t get the votes, by executive order you’re going to do something'”.

“You can’t do it by executive order, unless you’re a dictator,” Biden declared, adding “We’re a democracy, we need consensus.”

Fast forward to the first day of Biden’s presidency.

The guy implemented NINETEEN executive actions.

Before the first week of his presidency was over, Biden had signed THIRTY-THREESEVEN executive actions.

Despite the apparent fact that Biden doesn’t even know what he’s signing, he has already put pen to paper on more than three times as many orders as the previous four Presidents COMBINED.

In their first weeks Trump signed four, Obama signed five, George W. Bush signed none, and Bill Clinton signed one.

Indeed, no other President has ever signed as many orders as Biden, according to The American Presidency Project at the University of California Santa Barbara.

So, Joe… In your own words, what does that make you?

Video: Democrats OPPOSE Amendment To Recite Pledge Of Allegiance; Label Republicans ‘Insurrectionists’

Claim “insurrectionist” Republicans shouldn’t be able to lead the Pledge

Several Democrats took objection Wednesday to an amendment that would see the Pledge of Allegiance recited before House Judiciary Committee meetings, with one Rep. charging that ‘insurrectionist’ Republicans shouldn’t be able to lead the Pledge.

The amendment was introduced by Representative Matt Gaetz of Florida, who previously called for the Judiciary Committee to open with the pledge two years ago.

As he did then, New York Democratic Representative Jerry Nadler opposed the move, arguing that it is unnecessary.

“I don’t know why we should pledge allegiance twice in the same day to show how patriotic we are,” Nadler said, claiming that committee members already pledge allegiance when they arrive at the building.

Nadler added “I don’t think this is the most important amendment in the world.”

Democrat Rep. Deborah Ross cited a Supreme Court ruling that says officials cannot force citizens to say the pledge.

Other Democrats then used Gaetz’s proposal to further their obsessive ranting about the events of January 6th 2021.

Hank Johnson of Georgia stated “I regret the fact that many members of this committee voted against certifying the election results based on the ‘big lie,’ and they have continued to promote the ‘big lie’ and undermine public confidence in our government.”

Johnson then declared that it is “ironic” that Republicans who “supported the insurrection” now want to force Democrats to pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States.

Rhode Island Democrat David Cicilline also used the moment to dredge up the Capitol incident, claiming that he would support Gaetz’s amendment if it contained a provision that would restrict “anyone who supported insurrection” from leading the pledge.

Gaetz fired back, noting that if Cicilline’s definition of “insurrectionist” is anyone who objected to electors, “then there would be many Democrats on the committee that wouldn’t be eligible to lead the pledge.”

Gaetz tweeted footage of the discussion, asking “Why does patriotism make Democrats so heated?”

Watch:

Republican Rep. Jeff Van Drew, a former Democrat who switched parties in 2019, said he was “almost speechless,” that members would object to taking a minute to affirm their allegiance to the country.

“Come on, this can’t be real. I can’t believe we’re having this debate,” Van Drew said.

Republican Chip Roy of Texas, slammed the Democrats for opposing basic patriotic principles, also citing a recent proposal to condemn socialism, which was opposed by some Democrats.

“And that is the state of your Democratic Party today,” Roy asserted.

Here is the entire discussion:

Cicilline’s amendment was voted down, while Gaetz’s amendment was approved without opposition, with a vote of 39-0.

    Video: Biden Says “More Than Half The Women In My Administration Are Women”

    Biden spoke about sexual assaults on women with Bill Clinton standing awkwardly behind him

    During an appearance at the White House with former president Bill Clinton, the current incumbent bragged that more than half of the women in his administration are… women.

    It was another gaffe filled shit show from the now 80 year old Biden who first welcomed Clinton to “the United States Congress” despite being in the White House:

    Biden then dropped another pearler that will go down in history with the great presidential quotes:

    The statement is weirdly quite on point:

    Biden was talking about women in regards to the 30th anniversary of the Family Medical Leave Act, which Clinton signed into law in 1993.

    Things got awkward when Biden started talking about sexual assaults on women:

    Earlier, Kamala Harris made another of her kindergarten teacher style speeches, lauding how much Clinton has helped women progress:

    Kevin McCarthy Says Coward Cop Who Shot Ashli Babbitt ‘Did His Job’

    House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) told the media on Thursday that the coward cop who shot and killed unarmed 14-year Air Force veteran Ashli Babbitt in the Capitol on Jan 6th “did his job.”

    “Do you think Ashli Babbitt was murdered or do you think the police officer who shot her was doing his job?” was asked by a reporter during a press conference at the Capitol. 

    “I think the police officer did his job,” McCarthy responded.

    Babbitt’s killer, Capitol Police officer Lt Michael Byrd, claimed in his first public interview months after the shooting that he was the victim of “racism” and showed “the utmost courage” and saved “countless lives” by shooting the unarmed 5’2,” 118 lbs Babbitt.

    Byrd was exonerated by Merrick Garland’s corrupt DOJ without so much as an interview.

    Though most Republicans view Babbitt as the victim of a trigger-happy coward, Sen. Markwayne Mullin (R-OK) said he took Byrd into his bosom after the shooting and “gave him a hug” and told him, “Sir, you did what you had to do.”

    Sen. Kevin Cramer (R-ND) similarly said how “grateful” he was to the coward cop who shot her for “not complying.”

    Senator Lindsey Graham on Jan 6th similarly called on Capitol police to shoot and kill the Trump supporters who entered the Capitol building, screaming at the Senate sergeant-in-arms: “What are you doing? Take back the Senate! You’ve got guns. Use them!”

    Byrd was the only cop that day who felt it necessary to use deadly force and his victim was an unarmed woman and Air Force veteran who posed him no threat.
