    (CNN)Russian President Vladimir Putin praised US President Joe Biden Thursday, describing him as a "professional" who is "completely knowledgeable on all issues," according to a Kremlin transcript of Putin's televised remarks.

    "Mr. Biden is a professional, and you need to be very careful when working with him so as not to miss something," Putin said during a videoconference meeting with graduates from Russia's Graduate School of Public Administration. "He himself does not miss a thing, I assure you, and this was absolutely clear to me."

    "Let me say it again: he is focused, he knows what he wants to achieve and does it very skilfully, and you can instantly sense it," the Russian President added.

    Ex-Obama Doctor Torches Biden In Brutal Letter, Demands Biden ‘Submit To A Cognitive Test Immediately’

    Rep. Ronny Jackson (R-TX), the former White House physician for former Presidents Barack Obama and Donald Trump, sent a letter to Democrat President Joe Biden on Thursday demanding that Biden immediately submit to a cognitive test because his “mental decline and forgetfulness have become more apparent over the past eighteen months.”
    The letter — which was signed by more than a dozen other lawmakers, including by another physician and a dentist — told Biden that he should “follow the precedent set by former President Trump to document and demonstrate sound mental abilities.”

    “The American people should have absolute confidence in their President,” the letter states. “They deserve to know that he or she can perform the duties of Head of State and Commander in Chief. They deserve full transparency on the mental capabilities of their highest elected leader. To achieve this, we urge you to submit to a cognitive test immediately. We implore you to then publish the test results, so the American people know the full mental and intellectual health of their President, and to set an example for all Presidents to follow going forward.”
    The letter then documented numerous instances of Biden appearing to have had struggles:
    Previously, while on the campaign trail, you agreed to a similar assessment. At first, you “grew testy” and questioned “why the hell would I take a test,” according to an AP report. Later, you relented and said you were “very willing to let the American public judge my physical, mental – my physical, as well as my mental fitness and to, you know, to make a judgement about who I am.”


    The letter continued documenting instances where Biden appeared to struggle:
    As you may remember, starting in 2018, political opponents and members of the media clamored for then-President Trump to take a cognitive test. In response, the White House Physician conducted a Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MOCA) for President Trump, at which he excelled.
    According to Dr. Ziad Nasreddine, the neurologist who created the test, MOCA is a simple screening tool to identify early signs of mental impairment. Dr. Nasreddine said the test is best administered when a person or their loved ones “start noticing mental decline,” particularly forgetfulness on ordinary tasks. MOCA results allow a medical expert to identify “cognitive impairment that comes with diseases like Alzheimer’s, stroke, or multiple sclerosis.” This is pertinent since it was publicly documented during your candidacy that you had previously suffered from aneurysms associated with at least one hemorrhagic stroke. Certain behaviors that signal someone should take the exam include “patients repeating themselves, losing car keys frequently, forgetting recent events, and multiple instances of forgetting conversations.” Unfortunately, your forgetfulness and cognitive difficulties have been prominently on display over the past year.
    Unfortunately, your mental decline and forgetfulness have become more apparent over the past eighteen months. In March, you forgot the name of the Pentagon, the Department of Defense, and the Defense Secretary, though you had said “Secretary Austin” just a few moments prior. The official White House transcript reads, “And I want to thank Sec- – the former general- I keep calling him ‘General.’ My – the guy who runs that outfit over there.”
    Additionally, at the end of February, you visited Houston to survey the winter storm damage, where you misidentified the time of day and Senator John Cornyn’s title, and you mispronounced Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee’s first name and Congresswoman Lizzie Fletcher’s maiden name of Pannill. Then, apparently forgetting the purpose of your visit, you questioned, “what am I doing here?” The White House transcript from 4:30 CST reads “…it’s dinner time. Good afternoon – or almost. Actually, it’s evening. And I want to thank you, Governor and Mrs. Abbott, for your hospitality and your friendship. And Representative – Senator Cornyn, I think he had to go back; I think he’s getting on a plane. He told me last – he came in to see me last event. And Representatives Sheila Jackson Lee, Al Green, Sylvia Garcia, Lizzie Pannilli [sic] – excuse me, Pannill [Fletcher] – and-what am I doing here? I’m going to lose track here.”
    In May, you remembered an article from “my fourth or fifth year as vice president. .. ” that said, “Biden travels 1,300,000 miles on Air Force One,” though, as you know, the Vice President actually travels aboard Air Force Two. You continued the story to explain that you took frequent trips home that year because your mom was sick, and to remember an Amtrak conductor named Angelo Negri who congratulated you on reaching 1,500,000 career miles on Amtrak. However, the timeline of that story does not match up. Your fourth year as vice president would have been 2013, Negri’s obituary states he retired from Amtrak in 1993, and your mother passed away in 2010.
    Finally, in March of 2020, you started to recite the oft-quoted first line of the Declaration of Independence, but you seemingly forgot the phrase. You stated, “We hold these truths to be self-evident. All men and women are created, by the, you know, you know the thing.” Most school-age children could recite that famous and revered patriotic phrase by heart, but you could not.
    The letter noted how Democrats have said in the past that there is a real chance that “there will be future situations where the president’s physical and mental state may create issues for us” and that Democrats introduced legislation to establish an independent commission to examine a president’s fitness for office and determine “whether the President is mentally or physically unable to discharge the powers and duties of the office.”

    The letter said Biden should “follow the example set by President Trump” by undergoing “a cognitive test as soon as possible and immediately making the results available for the American people.”
    Jackson reported to the White House Medical Unit (WHMU) during the Bush era in 2006, but he did not start as physician to the president until July 2013, a position in which he served until March 28, 2018. Jackson served as WHMU director from March 2010 through December 2014. Jackson also served as the first chief medical advisor to the president from February 2019 until December 2019. Jackson later ran as a Republican in Texas’s 13th Congressional District in this last election cycle and won.

    Trump's former physician sent a letter to Biden asking him take a cognitive test - and more than a dozen Republicans signed it

    Declassified Biden Admin Report Listed 'Extremist' Pro-Life Groups as National Security Threat

    One of the left’s favorite political tactics is the false moral equivalency: treating the mistakes of one group the same as the mistaken aims of another — or the evil done by one group the same as the evil aims of another.
    The Biden administration happens to be full of leftists, and a declassified report from the director of national intelligence shows the false moral equivalency in action.
    In the report, made public in March, the office of the DNI provides its assessment of the most concerning domestic threats to national security.




    Office of the DNI



    @ODNIgov



    Today #ODNI, @TheJusticeDept, and @DHSgov released an unclassified summary of the joint comprehensive threat assessment on domestic violent extremism, view the full report here: https://dni.gov/index.php/news
    What’s shocking about this report is that, apparently, key players in our national security establishment believe “abortion-related violent extremists” pose the same threat to America’s safety as Black Lives Matter and antifa — neither of which is mentioned in the report by name.
    We like to pretend that federal bureaucrats are impartial employees of the people who serve a higher authority than the politicians who appointed them.

    But this is not true.
    In the Senate last week, Republican Sen. Mike Braun of Indiana asked Attorney General Merrick Garland why pro-life advocates were being treated the same as groups that spent much of the previous year wrecking the United States.

    “To me this seemed like kind of a wild attack on the pro-life community,” Braun said, according to the Daily Caller News Foundation. “It did not list groups like BLM and antifa, who have had a clear recent record of violent acts.”
    “So can you explain what that was about?” Braun asked. “Why there would have been focus on that, and has there been a rash of incidents related to it?”
    Garland said he didn’t know where pro-life groups fit into the “threat matrix” but suggested that they were not “listed at the high end of threat.”

    He said the left-wing “anarchists” mentioned by Braun would fit into the report’s anti-government or anti-authority category — right alongside “[domestic violence extremists] with ideological agendas in support of pro-life or pro-choice beliefs.”
    When was the last time pro-life advocates perpetrated an act of violence on par with torching businesses and attacking police officers?

    If this has happened, why haven’t we heard about it? Does anyone believe the establishment media would neglect to report on a pro-life group targeting an abortion clinic, for example?
    We haven’t heard about it because it has not happened recently.

    What has happened recently, however, is a widespread assault by leftist mobs against their own countrymen.
    This very real threat to national security has no business being mentioned in the same breath as the virtually non-existent violent extreme of the pro-life community.
    The fact is that both pro-life extremists and far-left extremists are evil because they employ violence for political ends in a civilized society.
    They should be targeted by law enforcement and prosecuted.

    But one of these is clearly not like the other. It wasn’t the pro-life community that occupied the so-called CHOP zone in Seattle or laid siege to a federal courthouse in Portland.
    And yet the Biden administration would have us believe the greatest domestic threat facing this country comes from the right.
    If you buy that, you’ll love what Rep. Ilhan Omar has to say about the moral equivalence between Israel and Hamas and between the U.S. and the Taliban.
    These are the people we put in power.
    They are determined to equate Americans who believe in the inherent value of life in the womb with those who want to overthrow our system of law and order.

    WATCH: Biden confuses Putin with Trump in latest gaffe

    After President Biden spent roughly four hours in a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, Biden gaffed and mixed up his name in a press conference Wednesday. Instead of saying he watched Putin’s press conference he said he “caught the end of Trump’s.”



    House Republicans



    @HouseGOP



    President Biden just confused President Trump with Vladimir Putin after meeting with Putin for nearly FOUR hours.


    https://twitter.com/i/status/1405217384139460608

    This is the latest of Biden’s many gaffes during the president’s first international trip to Europe this week. Another moment that gained traction on Twitter was during another press conference, where Biden took a long, awkward pause in the middle of speaking.

    You're missing the point.

    Let me spell it out for you. When Canada gets sick, no one cares. When the USA catches a cold, Canada comes down with pneumonia.




    Recession of 2008–09 in Canada


    The global financial crisis that began in 2007 dragged much of the world economy into recession, and Canada was not spared. Although the effects on Canada were milder than on the United States and in Europe, the Canadian recession of 2008–09 was still severe enough to generate sharp declines in output and employment and to require significant responses by Canadian policy-makers.

    Origins
    While its underlying causes are varied and still subject for debate, it is widely acknowledged that the global financial crisis was triggered by the surge and collapse of United States housing prices during the 2000s.

    LAUGH OUT LOUD!!!! That shit is Hilarious!
    What's more hilarious is that you and the liberal media take the Pooter seriously!

    This was obviously a "dig" at our president.

    Remember when Biden “..gave the Pooter a list of…16 specific entities, 16 defined as critical infrastructure under US policy from the energy sector to our water systems that are 'off limits' to cyber attacks,”?
    Pepperidge Farm remembers.

    Who the Fuck does that!!?? LOL!

    Joe: "Putin, We really really don't want you to attack certain entities in our country, like, really don't want them attacked, no way, no how, ya know?"

    Putin: "Oh, we would never think of it (*laughs*). Which ones are you talking about dear friend? Just so we are aware of which ones not to attack."

    Joe: "Which ones you ask? Well I just so happen to have a list of the super critical, super important, and super crucial infrastructure that should absolutely not, under any circumstances, be attacked. Don't even think about attacking these critical sectors that are right here on this list I'm giving to you. It would be devastating to our country if an attack were to happen on any of these entities on THIS LIST right here.

    Putin: "Don't worry comrade! Now that we have your list of super important infrastructure....you will be safe!"

    LMAO!
