NTD News White House Correspondent Iris Tao shared her footage of the encounter with Biden on Twitter. In it, Biden can be seen leaving the White House and approaching the reporters waiting outside until Tao can be heard asking about COVID-19’s origin, "Will you hold China accountable?" Biden put his hands up then turned away to board the presidential helicopter, Marine One.

"BREAKING: President Biden @POTUS was going to speak but turned away upon hearing my question on #Covid origin and whether he’ll hold #China accountable. @NTDNews @ChinaInFocusNTD @capitolreport," Tao tweeted.

Biden admin quietly admits White House's 9,000 unused oil permits talking point is wrong

"Despite the administration’s inaccurate and misleading numbers, the reality is that the U.S. natural gas and oil industry is confronting the global energy crisis by continuing to work to meet the energy needs of U.S. consumers and our allies abroad," Frank Macchiarola, the American Petroleum Institute's senior vice president of policy, economics and regulatory affairs, told Fox News Digital.

"It is time for the administration to end the finger-pointing and instead support American production with a comprehensive strategy for American energy development — one that includes a final five-year program for offshore leasing and quarterly onshore lease sales," Macchiarola continued.

The Biden administration has also dragged its feet on oil and gas lease sales, only holding sales when directed by either federal courts or the Inflation Reduction Act. The DOI has delayed issuing a congressionally five-year plan for offshore drilling and is weighing a complete block on such leasing through 2028.

Oil production on federal lands fell to 12.28 million barrels per day in November, the latest month with data. Production peaked at 13 million barrels a day under the Trump administration.

But a Biden administration official downplayed the alteration Monday, saying the number of unused oil and gas permits remains high.

"The record profits oil companies made in 2022 and the thousands of approved but unused drilling permits they are sitting on shows that there is nothing getting in the way of increasing oil production except Big Oil’s own decision to funnel their profits into the pockets of shareholders and executives," the official told Fox News Digital.

Biden makes unproven claim that he was a civil rights activist during Selma speech

"I remember feeling how guilty I was, [that] I wasn't here. How could we all be up there, and you going through what you went through," he continued.

But there is no historical evidence to support Biden's claim. Sunday's speech was not the first time Biden has claimed to be involved in the civil rights movement.

In 1983, Biden claimed that he participated in sit-in protests to desegregate public spaces.

"When I was 17, I participated in sit-ins to desegregate restaurants and movie houses," Biden said. "And my stomach turned upon hearing the voices of Faubus and Wallace. My soul raged on seeing Bull Connor and his dogs."

Biden's Offensive Pandering, Lying, and Confusion in Selma

But if you read media descriptions, like this from the New York Times, you would think we were barely away from those times.

“Even as Democrat-led efforts to protect access to the ballot have failed” — what the heck is this? That’s truly shameless. Exactly who is being denied the vote? And it’s Democrats who have lied and been divisive under Joe Biden acting as though somehow Republicans are denying people the right to vote, which is all about trying to manipulate the voters.

Joe Biden was at that again during his remarks in Selma. First, he of course had to lie again about his involvement in the civil rights movement to pander to his audience.

“I will not let a filibuster obstruct the sacred right to vote, the right of any other right to vote from there!”

What the heck did he just say? The worst part of it is that he’s operating from a teleprompter generally for his speeches and all he has to do is read it. Yet, you still have results like this. He doesn’t even seem to understand that he made no sense. And again, it’s pandering and playing into the lie that somehow there are people on the other side working to take away the right to vote.

Moreover, shall we remind him of how many times in the past he praised the filibuster before he decided it was an evil thing? How about how many times the Democrats used it in 2020?

Biden to use budget to fuel attacks on GOP

Some of Biden’s proposals were made public this week in the days ahead of the Philadelphia visit, key among them being a 5 percent Medicare surtax on individuals earning more than $400,000 per year, something the administration contends will extend the solvency of the national health care program by 25 years.

That will be among an array of tax increases on the wealthy and corporations that total a staggering $2 trillion over the next decade in an effort to reduce the deficit, a suggestion sure to be met with a resounding “no.”

“You know the president’s budget is replete with what they would do if they could — thank goodness the House is Republican — massive tax increases, more spending,” Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (Ky.) told reporters earlier this week.

“The American people can thank the Republican House” that Biden’s proposed tax increases “will not see the light of day,” McConnell said.

Biden’s Star Trek Diversity Ambassador Getting ‘Pale’ ‘Males’ Out of Diplomacy​

I can’t imagine why the rest of the world thinks we’re a joke.

Ambassador Gina Abercrombie-Winstanley, a 30-year diplomat, is the Chief Diversity and Inclusion Officer for the Department of State.

What exactly is she an ambassador to?

She left the foreign service during the Trump administration because she was disillusioned with its direction.
“It has always been a struggle for minorities and women to reach our full potential in the white-male-dominated world of diplomacy,” she wrote of her decision in The New York Times. “The State Department has long struggled to reflect ‘looking like America’ among our senior officer corps, and under this president the refusal to utilize the talent, experience and passion of so many people dedicated to serving our nation was heartbreaking.”

As long as it’s not the talent of the pale male people.

A more diverse US State Department is taking on its ‘male, pale, and Yale’ legacy – The Atlantic Council

“I have often argued that we are not inherently better at the job, but that we are prepared. Because as women, as minorities in this country, we have always started in a position of not being in power,” Abercrombie-Winstanley told Rama Yade, the senior director of the Atlantic Council’s Africa Center (and a trailblazing Black diplomat in her own right in France). “We have to make friends. We have to be able to convince people to support our positions. Those basic qualities, frankly, make for better diplomacy.”
She noted that while lower and mid-level positions are often more diverse than they have been in the past, it’s a different story for senior-level posts. “Our workforce notices the extreme lack of diversity in our senior positions—whether it is parity or diversity—and that the process of getting to these positions is very opaque.”
While she laid out the monetary and moral case for diversity and inclusion initiatives, Abercrombie-Winstanley compared her diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility reforms to taking action on cybersecurity: “We may not love it, but we do it. So I don’t mind what’s in your heart, what’s in your head—it’s what you do.”

Priorities, Joe? President's new budget mentions 'equity' 63 times, 'transgender' eight times and 'queer' seven times - but 'fentanyl' is only used twice, while word 'opioid' appears just four times

It has largely replaced the word 'equality' in progressive circles. Equality means offering everyone the same opportunity, while equity means ensuring everyone achieves the same outcome.

Supporter say equity helps eliminate unfair barriers which make it harder for some to achieve their full potential. Critics say it often involves unfair bias against certain groups deemed as successful, and that equal outcomes are often achieved artificially, by lowering overall standards.

'On his first day in office, the President signed a sweeping Executive Order directing the entire Federal Government to advance an ambitious equity and racial justice agenda—not as a one-year project, but as part of a sustained commitment to make the promise of America real for every American,' the document reads.

'Since then, the Administration has made significant progress advancing equity across the Federal Government, including by releasing a second Executive Order that strengthens its ability to create opportunities for communities and populations that have been historically underserved, and continues to build an America in which all can participate, prosper, and reach their full potential,' it continues.

Gov's Statement Exposes Biden's Hypocritical Lies and Targeting of Medicare Advantage

But what makes his remarks truly disgusting and hypocritical is not only is he lying about the Republicans, he’s the one who is targeting Medicare by targeting Medicare Advantage.

As I wrote last month, 48 percent of Americans who are eligible for Medicare have Medicare Advantage, so what he’s doing can hurt a lot of Americans.

First, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) announced that they would “claw back $4.7 billion from 2023 through 2032” in overpayments. That could then lead to “higher costs to plans” that “could lead some insurers to pull out of markets — and beneficiaries could face higher costs, fewer plan choices or reduced supplemental benefits under the Medicare Advantage program, per an Avalere analysis.”
In the second move — which is even more concerning — Medicare Advantage insurers would face an average 2.3 percent cut to baseline payments in 2024, Biden’s CMS said on Wednesday. That would be a net cut of more than $3 billion to the industry.

Now the governor of Puerto Rico, Pedro Pierluisi, a member of the New Progressives, is very upset. According to El Nuevo Dia, he told the Biden administration that the preliminary plan to regulate 2024 Medicare Advantage reimbursements, which could lead to a reduction of $800 million annually in payments to these health plans on the island, would represent “the biggest cut in federal funds for health care in Puerto Rico’s history.” Pierluisi called on Secretary Xavier Becerra to stop the changes in Medicare Advantage plan reimbursements.

Not to be outdone, Vice President Kamala Harris had her own fantasy to share. On Feb. 24 during a speech at Bowie State in Maryland, Harris created a shopping list for Americans to buy stuff with all that money they were saving because of lower energy costs. “For working families, we have reduced heating and electricity bills so folks have more money in their pockets to buy things like schools supplies, replace the dishwasher, or take a family vacation,” she said.

Can you take a family vacation on the difference between what gasoline cost in July and what it cost in February? Maybe you could ask your neighbor to put you and the kids up for a few nights. And what kind of dishwasher would you be able to buy?

Our incurious and slavishly devoted media can’t rouse themselves to comment on the utter stupidity of both Biden’s and Harris’s flagrant lies.


“Gas prices are up $1.03 a gallon from when Joe Biden took office. Biden’s administration continues to undermine American energy,” RNC rapid response director Tommy Pigott tweeted at the time. “Families have lost $2,250 paying higher energy costs since he took office.”
In December, California Gov. Gavin Newsom called a special legislative session to tax California’s oil refiners while blaming them for the state’s high energy prices.
