I had to laugh when I heard this faux President claim that this was a good job report because, well, we didn’t lose any jobs but gained almost 200,000. Impressive if you ignore the fact that economists were predicting a gain of 500,000. He also crowed about the unemployment rate going down, leaving out the inconvenient truth that the reason it declined was because almost 50,000 people left the work force (stopped looking for work). Joe Biden is a fraud and an embarrassment. Judging by his poll numbers, much of America is waking up from it’s Trump hating stupor and are coming to terms with this reality.

Congressional Republicans insisted Friday that the disappointing September jobs report showed that President Biden’s economic plan was not working.

“President Biden’s delusions have suggested for months his economic plan is ‘working,’” House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy tweeted Friday.

“Anyone who saw today’s jobs report knows it’s failing. Democrats have turned what should have been an economic resurgence coming out of the pandemic into an economic crisis.”

US employers added just 194,000 jobs in September — fewer than the 336,000 jobs added in August and the fewest since December of last year, when employers actually cut jobs amid a winter surge of COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations and deaths.

Biden attempted to put a positive spin on the worst jobs report of his administration by pointing to a decline in the unemployment rate from 5.2 percent to 4.8 percent — even though economists say that’s a reflection of fewer Americans seeking work.

Rep. Kevin Brady (R-Texas), the top Republican on the House Ways and Means Committee, said the report was “more dreadful news for America’s slowing recovery, for Main Street businesses struggling to find workers, and for families whose paychecks just can’t keep up with higher prices.

How out of touch is this guy? He obviously thinks the takeaway from this anecdote is how overwhelmed hospitals are from COVID cases. The false narrative is bad enough but the real takeaway is that the President of the United States, who has shown himself to be impotent in dealing with the myriad problems facing our country, used the awesome power of his office to help a personal friend to not have to wait her turn with the rest of the peons. The hypocrisy is stunning but this is lost on President Biden. The fact that he is bragging about this blatant abuse of power is a testament to just out of touch he is.

President Joe Biden said Thursday he personally reached out to a hospital the night before to ensure the wife of his “good friend” received immediate care because the “waiting room was so crowded.” “Last night, I was on the telephone with a person at an emergency hospital ward in Pennsylvania because a good friend had called, and he had rushed his significant other to the emergency room because this woman was having trouble breathing, had a high fever, and could not catch her breath,” Biden said during a speech in Illinois promoting COVID-19 vaccine mandates for businesses. “They got her into the hospital. The waiting room was so crowded, things were so backed up they couldn’t even get her to be seen initially. So, because I knew this person, I called. I called the desk receiving nurse and asked what the situation was.”

Masks are political. They are not about protecting anyone, they are about controlling everyone.

Squad” member Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., was caught on camera saying she was only wearing a mask because she was being tailed by a “Republican tracker.”

The Michigan congresswoman made the admission while speaking to a maskless attendee at an event in Detroit featuring Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Secretary Marcia Fudge.

Tlaib told the attendee that she only had the mask on because of the tracker, who was filming the exchange, after the person mistakenly thought Tlaib was scolding him for going maskless.

“Oh, no, oh, not you!” Tlaib said in the video. “No, no, no – I’m just wearing it because I’ve got a Republican tracker here.”

Tlaib also pointed at the tracker filming the pair’s exchange in the video first reported by the Washington Free Beacon.

The congresswoman came under criticism in August when she was caught maskless on a dance floor in Dearborn, Michigan, while the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidance called for indoor masking due to high coronavirus case counts.

 A comprehensive UK report into transgender participation in sport determined Thursday trans men who identify as women retain distinct physiological advantages when competing in female categories, even if they suppress testosterone levels.

Such is the competitive advantage the report urges consideration be given to adopting “universal” or “open” categories in order to protect female-only competition, while allowing transgender participation after concluding men who identify as women do retain physique, stamina and strength advantages.

The report follows the Tokyo 2020 Olympics this summer where transgender athlete Laurel Hubbard made history by competing in the women’s +87kg weightlifting.
