Biden Responds To Reporter Asking Him About His Vaccination Plan: ‘Give Me A Break’


“Mr. President, you said you set the goal at 100 million vaccines in the [first 100 days]. Is that high enough?” a reporter asked Biden. “Shouldn’t you set the bar higher? That’s basically where the U.S. is right now.”

“When I announced it, you all said, ‘It’s not possible,'” Biden responded. “Come on, give me a break, man. It’s a good start.”

Biden made the remark while in the White House — which is federal property — while not wearing a mask. This comes on the heels of the president having signed an Executive Order on Wednesday that requires people to wear masks while on federal property. Biden appeared to have a mask on at certain times while in the room, but not while talking. There were numerous other people in the room, most of whom appeared to have masks on.

Biden Signs Order Requiring Travelers To Wear Face Masks

The executive order, titled Promoting COVID-19 Safety In Domestic And International Travel, calls on various cabinet agencies to use existing authority to implement the new mandate on applicable methods of public transportation, which can include at airports, on commercial aircraft, on trains, on public maritime vessels and ferries, and on intercity bus services. However, it’s not clear how the Biden administration plans to enforce the mandate.

White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain previously said in a memo that Biden would be implementing an interstate-travel mask mandate at the start of his term, in addition to requiring masks on federal property, reported the Associated Press. (Biden later addressed members of the media at the Lincoln Memorial while not wearing a mask himself). He has also called on Americans to wear masks for the next 100 days as part of a “100 Day Masking Challenge.”

According CNBC News, major U.S. airlines already require travelers to wear face masks when flying, and airports already require face masks as well. Even before Biden’s order, more than 2,500 people had already been prohibited from flying over policy violations.

Under Biden’s executive order, international travelers visiting will also be required to test negative for COVID-19 prior to departing for the U.S.
And quarantine for 14 days when they arrive. Didn't Trump propose something like this and democrats threw a fit.

Biden Stops Trump Order To Slash Price Of Insulin, EpiPen


“The HHS Thursday froze the former Trump administration’s December drug policy that requires community health centers to pass on all their insulin and epinephrine discount savings to patients,” Bloomberg Law reported Thursday. “Centers that don’t pass on the savings wouldn’t qualify for federal grants.”

“This freeze is part of the Biden administration’s large-scale effort announced this week that will scrutinize the Trump administration’s health policies,” the report noted. “If the previous administration’s policies raise ‘fact, law, or policy’ concerns, the Biden HHS will delay them and consult with the Office of Management and Budget about other actions.”

A report for Bloomberg Government said the Biden administration is on a “different page” about curbing drug prices than the Trump administration, noting of the Biden team awaiting “at least a dozen lawsuits … over Trump-era moves to lower drug prices”:
Biden enters the presidency with at least a dozen lawsuits waiting over Trump-era moves to lower drug prices, an issue the new administration will likely tackle in its own way. The Department of Health and Human Services under Biden inherits challenges to rules that tie drug reimbursement to cheaper foreign drug prices and allow medication imports from Canada. It also faces complaints over Trump’s push for drugmakers to ship discounted drugs bought by low-income health centers to commercial contract pharmacies.

Biden Orders DOJ Not To Renew Contracts With Private Prisons As Part Of Racial Equity Agenda



Before signing the executive action, Biden said he believes “we’re in a battle for the soul of this nation,” adding, “and the simple truth is, our soul will be troubled as long as systemic racism is allowed to persist.”

“I firmly believe the nation is ready to change, but government has to change as well.”

The order says that there are “a disproportionate number of people of color” currently incarcerated in the United States. It claims “privately operated criminal detention facilities consistently underperform Federal facilities with respect to correctional services, programs, and resources” that help prepare inmates to reenter society.

Biden Continues Fossil Fuel Crackdown, Plans To Suspend New Oil Drilling Permits On Federal Land, Report Says

Biden is prepared to suspend issuing new drilling permits to oil companies for wells on federal land indefinitely while the Department of the Interior conducts a review of oil development’s impact on climate change, according to The Wall Street Journal. While federal land only accounts for about 9% of onshore U.S. oil production, Biden’s order will have an outsized impact on states such as New Mexico where the federal government controls about a third of the state.

Many view the new moratorium as a significant step towards Biden fulfilling his campaign promise to end oil drilling on federal land and offshore, according to WSJ. Critics have pointed out that multiple times during the campaign, Biden and his team promised he would “not ban fracking.”

On Biden’s first day in office, interim Interior Secretary Scott de la Vega issued an order freezing new oil and gas drilling permits on federal land for 60 days. The limited order brought stiff blowback from officials in New Mexico as well as leaders of the Ute Indian Tribe in Utah, which is nearly two-thirds owned by the federal government.




here comes more foreign wars and $ 5.00 gsal gasoline ....

Biden’s Energy Policy Is AOC’s ‘Green New Deal Dressed Up As Executive Orders,’ GOP Senator Says

“What we’re seeing here is the Green New Deal basically dressed up in executive orders,” Sen Barrasso continued, referring to a set of drastic goals to combat climate change championed by progressive Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-New York).




Barrasso said Biden’s new direction would hit his constituents hard, many of whom are employed by coal, oil, and gas industries. He estimates the changes could cost up to 30,000 jobs in Wyoming alone.

“The Democrats have gone back to the blame America first approach,” Barrasso said. “The reason we want a strong energy economy in America is its jobs, its affordable energy, and it’s because of our own national security. Energy security is national security.”

The United States became the world’s largest energy producer under the leadership of former President Donald J. Trump. According to CNBC, America surpassed “both Russia and Saudi Arabia in oil production” and “became a net exporter of oil, when including refined products like diesel, jet fuel, and gasoline.”

It sure is getting depressing reading about what this mentally ill moron is doing every day.
When Biden had his faculties he was not that sharp, now he is off the freaking wall stupid.

Biden’s DOJ Nominee Repeatedly Posted Misinformation About Breonna Taylor’s Death On Social Media

Kristen Clarke is among several blue-check marks on Twitter that amplified the false claim that Ms. Taylor was lying in her bed when she was slain by police during the deadly raid. On at least one occasion, Clarke helped distort the narrative even further, erroneously stating that Taylor had been asleep in her bed when she was killed.

The facts of the case, however, indicate that Taylor was fatally shot in the hallway of her apartment after her boyfriend had shot a police officer who had busted through the door while executing a warrant.

Still, the widely-shared misinformation remains on Clarke’s Twitter feed as she awaits confirmation to become the first black woman to lead the DOJ’s Civil Rights Division. Clarke currently serves as the executive director for the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, a tax-exempt charitable organization that focuses on several progressive issues such as voting rights, hate crimes, income inequality, and combating alleged racial disparities in the criminal justice system.

I think many of the facilities are state owned, just operated commercially. Either way, it's better to get business out of detention. How many stories have we seen in the last few years where judges and prosecutors were charged with inflating sentences in exchange for kickbacks from private prisons? I know several have been on this very forum. And if they actually charged these guys, that likely means that it's a much larger issue where most get away with it. Not only because they are part of the system, but because in general we only catch a small percentage of the criminals in any particular group. Take away the profit motive, and the issue should sort itself out.

Or people could just stop breaking the law.

At last count our humble household has a combined 118 years here on earth. The last count we had zero felony convictions. Likewise we have zero misdemeanor convictions. Now before you dismiss my claims with a yeah but about how we had a high priced legal defense team ala OJ that won us freedom while absolutely, unequivocally, 100% guilty, you would be wrong. We are people that obey the laws of society. Yet somehow I read about people with 30 - 40 arrests and have been alive 1/3 of the amount of time that I've been around.

People play in the NBA because they are good at what they do. People end up in prison because they are good at breaking the law. If the percentage of the people in jail are disproportionate to their racial makeup of the country, then that group has a criminality problem. It's not the prison that has a racial problem. Cops aren't rounding up minorities willy nilly and tossing them to prosecutors to have a court convict them and hand them jail sentences.
