    Bone Spurs Biden! Isn't that what you pukes accused Trump of? SO now that the shoe is on the other foot how do you feel about that?



    WATCH: Biden Tells College Graduates That ‘Systemic Racism,’ Climate Change Like Vietnam War

    On Saturday, in an apparent attempt to convince college graduates that they could emulate the halcyon days of the leftist movement in the 1960’s, President Biden released a video congratulating college graduates in which he consistently paid them obsequious praise while comparing “systemic racism” and climate change to the Vietnam War.

    How would he know about the Vietnam war ??? He never served in it!


    “Congratulations. I’m proud of each and every one of you,” Biden began. “This past year has been an extraordinarily difficult year for our country and for the world. Times of loss and anxiety and disruption, and I know you felt it, too. Losing loved ones and friends, losing time with each other, but you’ve been incredibly resilient, and you’re ready for what comes next.”

    “No graduating class gets to choose the world in which they graduate,” he continued. “Every class enters the history of the nation up to the point that has been written by others.”
    Then, in the traditional we-have-to-change-our country platitudinous mantra Democrats have been proclaiming for decades, Biden gushed, “But few classes — once in every few generations — enters at a point in our history where it actually has a chance to change the trajectory of the country.”
    And so, back to the 1960’s: “Just three years after I stood where you’re standing, two of my political heroes, Dr. King and Robert Kennedy, were gunned down. The Vietnam war divided the nation and divided families. We were in the midst of a great movement for civil rights, women’s rights, and environmental rights. We faced an inflection point, and we did our best to seize that moment because things were changing so rapidly.”

    Biden then linked his preceding statements to “systemic racism” and climate change:
    And now, you face another inflection point. As we put this pandemic behind us, rebuild our economy, root out systemic racism, and tackle climate change, we’re addressing the great crises of our time with a greater sense of purpose than ever before.
    Back to lionizing the graduates: “And because of you, your generation, I’ve never been more optimistic about the future than I am today. You represent one of the most gifted and talented and well-educated generations in American history.”

    A terrifying pronouncement: “And you’re going to see more change in the next ten years than we saw in the last 50 years.”
    “But it’s going to be up to you,” Biden stated. “It’s going to be up to you to translate that unprecedented change into a greater measure of happiness and prosperity for not only you and our nation, but for the world around you. And I know you will.”
    Of Biden during the Vietnam War era, USA Today noted:

    Biden came of age amid the Vietnam War. But unlike millions of men of his generation, he never served in the military. Biden received five student draft deferments, first as an undergraduate at the University of Delaware and later as a law student at Syracuse University. And after a medical exam in April 1968, he received the “1-Y” classification, which meant he could only be drafted in a national emergency. …
    He received four student draft deferments while an undergraduate at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. And in the spring of 1968, he, too, received the “1-Y” classification — for bone spurs in his heels, per The New York Times.

    Biden Neglects to Mention D-Day, Tweets About 1921 Tulsa Massacre Instead

    Sunday, June 6, was the 77th anniversary of D-Day, one of the most significant dates in the history of World War II. The Allied invasion of Normandy was the largest amphibious assault ever carried out.
    It marked the start of the two-month-long Battle of Normandy and the eventual liberation of France from the German occupation.
    Historians have calculated the number of confirmed Allied fatalities on that first day alone to be 4,415, according to the National D-Day Memorial. Total Allied casualties are estimated at nearly 10,000. Codenamed “Operation Overlord,” the D-Day landing involved “over 5,000 ships, 11,000 airplanes, and over 150,000 service men,” the memorial notes.

    Allied heads of state have traditionally marked the day of remembrance by honoring the brave men who sacrificed so much on the shores of Normandy so that we may enjoy freedom today.
    Two years ago, then-President Donald Trump delivered one of the most powerful speeches of his presidency on the 75th anniversary of D-Day. He even drew praise from critics such as MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough and CNN’s Jim Acosta.
    It was a different story this year for President Joe Biden, who neglected to acknowledge the momentous date at all. Instead, he chose to pay tribute to the survivors of the 1921 Tulsa Massacre.

    That Tulsa post was one of only two published on the “@POTUS” Twitter account on Sunday. The other was an empty brag about “getting American back on track.”
    My intention is not to minimize the atrocity that occurred on May 31, 1921, in Tulsa, Oklahoma. It is arguably the single most tragic day in the history of racial violence in the U.S. I posted about the National Black Power Convention held last weekend in Tulsa to mark this sad chapter in history here.
    For those who may be unfamiliar with this event, in the early 1900s, a large number of African-Americans settled in the Greenwood district of Tulsa.

    According to History.com, the neighborhood “grew and flourished as a Black economic and cultural mecca—until May 31, 1921. That’s when a white mob began a rampage through some 35 square blocks, decimating the community known proudly as ‘Black Wall Street.’ Armed rioters, many deputized by local police, looted and burned down businesses, homes, schools, churches, a hospital, hotel, public library, newspaper offices and more. While the official death toll of the Tulsa race massacre was 36, historians estimate it may have been as high as 300. As many as 10,000 people were left homeless.”
    The events that took place 100 years ago in Tulsa were heinous. No one is denying that.

    But Biden had already acknowledged the anniversary. He traveled to Tulsa last Tuesday to commemorate the occasion.
    He spoke to survivors. His comments ranged from the ludicrous to the downright dangerous. Please read my post “Biden Managed a Trifecta of Stupid in His Tulsa Massacre Speech” to see for yourself just how disturbing his remarks really were.

    The Tulsa massacre anniversary rated a trip to Oklahoma, but the memory of D-Day, a date that changed the course of world history, didn’t elicit even a mention from the president of the United States.
    Biden’s failure to recognize D-Day tells us, and our foreign adversaries, a lot about his and his administration’s priorities.
    During his speech last week in Tulsa, Biden said, “According to the intelligence community, terrorism from white supremacy is the most lethal threat to the homeland today. Not ISIS, not Al Qaeda, white supremacy. That’s not me. That’s the intelligence community.”

    On Sunday night, former Republican Rep. Trey Gowdy of South Carolina, now a Fox News contributor, concluded his new Fox News program by posing a question to those who can’t answer, those who sacrificed their lives on D-Day. A visibly emotionally Gowdy asked: “Was it worth it?”
    “Was it worth it to the men and the women who were killed serving, protecting and defending this country?” Gowdy asked. ” … You might frame the question differently, you may ask, ‘Are we worth it?’ Are we now, as a country, what you sacrificed for us to be? Are we worth, as a country, worth what you gave up? … “
    He continued: “I do wonder sometimes what those women and men who died on behalf of this country would say. … When we reflect on the state of our politics, was it worth dying for? When we reflect on what has become of our First Amendment, was it worth losing your life over? When we reflect on the divisions in our country, these divisions that seem so intractable at times, was it worth dying for? … “

    “Have we become the country you imagined we would be when you fought and fell for us? Is this the America you dreamed of when you were taking your last breath? …”
    Perhaps five months ago, when we had a patriotic president who loved America, the answer might have been “yes.”
    But what if they were shown a clip of Biden or House Speaker Nancy Pelosi spewing their stupidity? Desperately trying to take away our liberties for the sake of political power?
    Or Dr. Anthony Fauci conspiring with his cronies in the world scientific community to turn the lab leak theory into a conspiracy theory? What if they were shown a clip of Rep. Adam Schiff trying to impeach a president over what he knew to be lies? What would they think about H.R. 1, the Democrats’ latest attempt to consolidate power for years to come?

    The 1921 Tulsa massacre occurred over 18 hours from May 31 to June 1, 1921. It had already been covered by the news media on the 1st. The left leaning news report I saw claimed that there were 300 dead and that it was the worst massacre on US soil ever. According to History.com, "the Tulsa Race Massacre stood as one of the deadliest riots in U.S. history, behind only the New York Draft Riots of 1863, which killed at least 119 people." Official records list only 36 dead. https://www.history.com/topics/roari...-race-massacre

    The worst massacre on US soil in recorded history not counting terrorist attacks would be Wounded Knee. https://www.history.com/topics/nativ...y/wounded-knee

    Democrats really have no morals. They have now turned on their own people and are calling them racist.




    Progressives Fume over Manchin’s Opposition to the For the People Act: He’s Helping GOP ‘Preserve White Power in America’




    Democrat Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV), in an op-ed published Sunday, explained why he will not be supporting the left’s controversial “For the People Act” — the House-passed bill which would strip states of their ability to implement basic election safeguards, effectively nationalizing U.S. elections — prompting anger and frustration among far-left Democrats who are accusing him of helping the GOP “preserve white power in America.”
    The moderate Democrat, whom progressive Rep. Jamaal Bowman (D-NY) has described as “the new Mitch McConnell,” detailed his opposition to the bill, contending that “voting and election reform that is done in a partisan manner will all but ensure partisan divisions continue to deepen.”
    “I believe that partisan voting legislation will destroy the already weakening binds of our democracy, and for that reason, I will vote against the For the People Act,” he explained, assuring he will also not vote to “weaken or eliminate the filibuster.”
    “I think it will divide us further,” Manchin said during an appearance on Fox News, defending his decision. “I don’t want to be in a country divided any further than I’m in right now.”
    Prominent progressives swiftly lashed out. After calling him “the new Mitch McConnell,” Bowman, accused the West Virginia Democrat of “doing the work of the Republican Party by being an obstructionist”:






    The For the People Act, which passed in the Democrat-led House in early March, would essentially overhaul the U.S. election system, stripping states of their ability to implement basic election integrity safeguards, such as voter ID requirements or bans on ballot harvesting.


    The bill also provides protection for illegal aliens who are registered to vote, prevents states from purging ineligible voters from rolls, and makes nationwide vote-by-mail without photo ID a reality.


    Twenty attorneys general signed a letter at the time of the bill’s passage, warning they will “seek legal remedies to protect the Constitution, the sovereignty of all states, our elections, and the rights of our citizens” if the bill becomes a law.

    Burger King is making a statement during pride month: It's trying to get a leg up in the chicken sandwich wars by taking a not-so-subtle dig at rival Chick-fil-A's fraught history with the LGBTQ+ community.

    The fast-food chain tweeted last week that it would donate 40 cents to the Human Rights Campaign for every Ch'King chicken sandwich sold in June. The Human Rights Campaign is America's largest LGBTQ civil rights organization.

    The Human Rights Foundation? It sounds gay. I'd stay away.
