Joe Biden Claims He Became a Professor ‘When I Left U.S. Senate’

Democrat presidential front runner Joe Biden confused his own personal history while talking with a student on Wednesday. Biden fielded a question from an 18-year-old journalist, and in an apparent attempt to relate to the student, Biden said, “When I left the United States Senate, I became a professor at the University of Pennsylvania.” According to Penn’s website, Biden became “the Benjamin Franklin Presidential Practice Professor” at Penn after he left the Obama administration in 2017. “Professor” Biden never actually taught a class. The Daily Pennsylvanian reported in 2017: “We are thrilled to have Vice President Biden here at Annenberg,” Annenberg Dean Delli Carpini said in a statement. “Although he is not scheduled to teach a formal course at this time, we are certain that there will be opportunities for our students to benefit from his presence at Penn.” In fact, a spokesperson for the former vice president said Biden won’t be teaching at all. “He will not be teaching classes,” Biden spokesperson Kate Bedingfield told The Daily Pennsylvanian on Tuesday morning. Biden’s work with Penn will be based out of Washington D.C. and Philadelphia, Bedingfield added. In February, Red State reported on the staggering amount Biden was paid to not teach a class: “…he was paid a ton of money for what looks like about four speeches a year each in 2017 and then in 2018. For that, he got $776,527.”

Why on Earth would Joe be so brazen in his exaggeration of his post-Obama years as VP?  The man is running for President, and EVERYTHING he says or does is fact-checked and put under a microscope.  Crazy ol’ Joe has been in politics for 40+ years.  So, he’s not new to the game.  There’s no excuse for this kind of silliness.  The only two explanations I can come up with are… #1)  He thinks we’re just too stupid to catch such brazen lies and exaggerations…or 2) He really IS getting senile, and isn’t mentally fit to be President.  By him saying his supposed tenure as a professor happened after he left the “Senate,” and not his eight years as Vice President, only adds to that suspicion.  We suspect that the Trump campaign will attack Biden on both fronts…and they should.  Joe is an easy target.

Biden mocked after apparent teleprompter issue during coronavirus remarks: ‘Let me go to the second thing’

Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden was mocked on Monday after the gaffe-prone 2020 Democratic front-runner appeared to lose his train of thought when his teleprompter malfunctioned during remarks on the coronavirus pandemic. Biden’s remarks, livestreamed from a studio set up in his home, began with his touching his face despite ongoing warnings not to do that during the coronavirus pandemic. His remarks were also short compared with the president’s near-daily coronavirus briefings, lasting less than 15 minutes in total, and featured a clear teleprompter issue that became a social media punchline. The former vice president was detailing his plan to fight the coronavirus crisis, but appeared to lose track of his place on the teleprompter. Biden signaled to his staff that there was something wrong, before going off on an awkward ad-lib. “And, in addition to that, in addition to that we have to make sure that we, we are in a position that we are, well met me go the second thing, I’ve spoken enough on that,” Biden said before going on to speak about the aggressive action he would like Trump to take under the Defense Production Act. “Joe Biden when the teleprompter stops working is a train wreck,” social media strategist Caleb Hull wrote. Biden — who had been oddly silent during the pandemic until Monday — covered a range of topics including what he would do if he were in the Oval Office and the lessons that can be learned from governors’ actions to fight the coronavirus – but some viewers harped on the blunders. “What a disaster,” GOP spokesperson Elizabeth Harrington wrote. “Biden has had plenty of time to think about this, and he can’t even figure out what to say without help from a teleprompter.”

Yeah..   Joe IS a disaster.  When he’s not debating a fellow liberal like Bernie (and can just spout decades-ingrained liberal talking points ad nauseum), or (more importantly) not reading from teleprompter, he’s a gaffe-machine.  That’s ok.  We VERY much look forward to Trump debating him later in the year.  It’ll be a hoot!  Bring the popcorn.    🙂

Fact Check: Biden Claims Trump Tax Cuts Left U.S. Unable to Afford Coronavirus Economic Rescue

Claim: Joe Biden said Sunday night that the Trump tax cuts of 2017 and Fed rate cuts of 2019 have left the U.S. unable to afford measures needed to stabilize the American economy during the coronavirus crisis. “The problem is the policies of this administration. Economically have we eaten a lot of our seed corn here,” Biden said during the Democrat presidential debate. “The ability of us to use leverages that were available before have been used up by this god-awful tax cut of $1.9 trillion and the fact that we have used, the fed will be of little consequence now. They’ve already used what leverage they have.” Verdict: False. Long-term interest rates are at all time lows, implying a robust appetite for the federal government’s Treasury bonds. And inflation is currently running below the Fed’s target, indicating that deficit spending is not creating a supply shortage that would push up prices. In short, there is no evidence that the U.S. is fiscally constrained by current borrowing or past deficits. Our seed corn is still right there for us to use as we need it. It is possible that the federal government’s fiscal deficits are higher than they would have been without the tax cuts, although that is unclear since we do not know if the economy would have grown by as much absent the tax cuts. Tax cuts arguably boosted economic growth higher than it would have been in an era in which the Fed was hiking interest rates, import tariffs were rising, and the trade war with China was dampening economic growth around the globe. What’s more, even economists who have concluded the cuts added to the deficit find that the tax cuts only account for around half of the additional borrowing. The other half is due to rising spending. Joe Weisenthal, the Bloomberg T.V. anchor, recently tweeted that interest rates prove there is no fiscal problem created by the higher deficits.

Exactly!!  To read Joe W.’s tweets, click on the text above.  Crazy ol’ Joe Biden is wrong, wrong, wrong!  So, even with this prepared nonsense from his team that he had for last night’s debate…he is 100% WRONG.  For more on what the Fed did last night with respect to interest rates, scroll down two articles and read.

Joe Biden: No Deportations for Any Criminal Illegal Aliens in My First 100 Days

Former Vice President Joe Biden (D) is vowing, once again, that he will not deport a single criminal illegal alien from the United States in his first 100 days. During CNN’s Democrat debate Sunday night, Biden recommitted to not deporting any illegal aliens, no matter their criminal history, in his first 100 days — and afterward allowing no deportations unless they are first prosecuted and convicted of felonies. “In the first 100 days of my administration, no one, no one will be deported at all,” Biden said. “From that point on, the only deportations that will take place is convictions of felonies in the United States of America.” Biden — who, along with Obama, oversaw thousands of deportations and detention of border crossers between 2008 to 2016 — has attempted to angle his national immigration plan to appease the open borders lobby that has blasted him for failing to commit, like Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), to ending all deportations of illegal aliens, regardless of criminal history. As Breitbart News has reported, research finds that deporting these 11 million to 22 million illegal aliens saves American taxpayers billions of dollars, compared to the costs they are forced to pay when illegal aliens are allowed to stay. Deporting every illegal alien in the country would amount to a cost savings of about $622 billion over the course of a lifetime. This indicates that deporting illegal aliens is six times less costly than what it costs American taxpayers to currently subsidize the millions of illegal aliens living in the U.S.

How crazy is that?!?!  As we’ve been saying from day one here at The Daily Buzz..  It is absolutely crucial that we continue deporting illegals.  In fact, we should be ramping that up substantially, and deporting them by the hundreds of thousands…regardless of age or gender.  And yes, you read that correctly.  What crazy Joe is suggesting he’d do here is insanity and gives criminal aliens a green light signal that they’d get a free pass under a Biden presidency.  Of course, this is just more pandering to the Bernie, open borders base of the party in this primary season.  Be sure to scroll down two articles to read about how gutless a wuss crazy Joe really is.

Opinion: It’s Beltway wishful thinking — Joe’s no fighter

“Hot takes” in politics are a little like armpit noises. Anybody can make them and nobody wants to hear somebody else’s. But there is one political “hot take” emerging this week that really must be considered. It is a little like taking a bite out of something that tastes terrible and then turning to someone you love and saying: “Hey, try this. It tastes terrible.” “Joe Biden proved he is a real fighter,” said some of the most revered political experts in the land this week. After the former vice president mopped the floor with Sen. Bernie Sanders in South Carolina and then cleaned up again this week in states like Michigan and Missouri. Yeah, a real fighter, that Joe Biden. A dog-faced-pony-soldier kind of fighter. He really knows how to plot a political rebirth and rise from the ashes like an ancient white phoenix. Actually, no. He is the same rotting corpse of a candidate he was three weeks ago. It’s just that Democrats have decided that they would be better off with the dead guy than with Mr. Sanders. In other words, the Democrat National Committee won. They killed Mr. Sanders in the crib — for the second straight primary in a row. It’s like “Weekend at Bernie’s,” only it stars anyone but Bernie himself. Either way, Mr. Biden is still a corpse. His electoral revival has nothing to do with Mr. Biden being a fighter, except of course when he is attacking defenseless voters. Then he’s a real tough guy. Calls young women “dog-faced,” cusses out gun owners, calls people liars or accuses them of being “fat.” President Trump is a real fighter. He took on the Republican establishment — and won. He gets into epic fights with people who buy ink by the barrel and newsprint by the freight carload. And then — scandal of all scandals — he took on Washington, delivering his First Inaugural that vowed to keep all the promises that had gotten him elected. (These people still haven’t forgiven him for that one.) Even amid the present crisis over coronavirus, Mr. Trump immediately shut borders at the earliest sign of trouble despite desperate accusations he was being alarmist and “xenophobic.” No. Mr. Biden is anything but a fighter. He would never do anything to upset his minders and masters along the Potomac, be they in the Democratic Party or in the press. Mr. Biden is nothing if not obedient and pliable. A Potomac pushover, bobbing for approval. There is another lesson to learn from these past few Democratic primary contests, as well. Despite all the Twitter hysteria and spinelessness among Democrat leaders in Washington, it turns out that regular voters even in the Democratic Party are not actually ready to turn to socialism. That’s a good sign. Quite possibly you have something more in common with your loony sister-in-law after all. Or maybe not. This, of course, should have been obvious to any adult from the beginning. Can you imagine if Democrats had, instead of washed-up Joe Biden, fielded a reasonable, likable and sane candidate last summer who crashed every early debate by demanding what in the hell happened to the Democratic Party? A candidate who refused to raise her hand when asked if she was in favor of giving free health care to illegal immigrants? A candidate who proudly embraced the legacy of former President Barack Obama? Forget the so-called “moderate” lane. Just run in the “adult” lane. Democrats could have fielded a much better candidate who was an actual fighter.

No kidding!!  Thanks to Charles Hurt for that spot-on op/ed on crazy ol’ Joe.  Let’s put aside his obvious mental issues for a moment..  Joe is the worst kind of panderer.  He kisses butt to whomever he thinks will give him a vote or promote him.  So, he’s the perfect candidate for the DNC.  They know they can mold him into whoever they want, and he’ll just go along because he’s a gutless, shameless wuss.  The only be people h’ll “fight” are those mentioned above.  And, really..  Don’t you find it weird that a 77 year old guy would challenge an auto plan worker wearing a hard hat, who is probably in his late 20s/early 30s to a fight outside?  Joe has this crazy inclination to challenge young guys, who would beat his ass to a pulp, to a fight.  Why would you do a thing like that?  Because he has NO situational awareness…and is crazy/senile.  Charles is exactly right..  Democrats could be electing a FAR better candidate than Joe.  But, to their least the Democrat primary voters are largely rejecting socialism.

Biden’s Coronavirus Proposal Cribs Heavily from Trump Administration

Former Vice President Joe Biden’s proposal for combatting the coronavirus cribs heavily from actions the Trump administration has already taken against the pandemic. Biden, whom many believe has locked up the Democrat nomination, unveiled his plan in a televised address on Thursday. The speech, which was billed beforehand by supporters as commander-in-chief-worthy, heavily criticized President Donald Trump’s efforts to contain the pandemic. “Our government’s ability to respond effectively has been undermined by the hollowing out of agencies and the disparagement of science,” Biden said. Adding that “our ability to derive a global response” was also “dramatically undercut by the damage Trump has done to our credibility and our relationships around the world.” Instead of urging unity and calm, Biden spent a large portion of the speech leveling political attacks on the president. Biden, in particular, argued that Trump’s policies and demeanor in the White House only exacerbated tensions in the public health and safety sectors. “Unfortunately, this virus laid bare the severe shortcomings of the current administration,” the former vice president said. “Public fears are being compounded by [a] pervasive lack of trust in this president, fueled by an adversarial relationship with the truth.” Despite the tough rhetoric, many of the proposals Biden suggested for combatting the virus were, in fact, already central to the Trump administration’s efforts. For instance, Biden’s plan calls for “no efforts” to be spared in getting private laboratories and universities to help test for the virus. The suggestion mirrors a move the Trump administration took in February in ordering the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to allow hundreds of academic hospitals and private laboratories to start testing for the coronavirus. Similarly, the former vice president’s plan argues in favor of a federal relief effort for small businesses negatively impacted by the pandemic. The idea is identical to one Trump, himself, proposed on Wednesday, while addressing the nation in primetime. Trump’s version, which has been presented to Congress in the form of a $50 billion appropriation for low-interest loans to small businesses, includes detailed requirements for cost, eligibility, and implementation. Biden’s proposal, on the other hand, is vague in terms of cost, only stating the former vice president would push for the creation of a small-business loan program upon taking office. Other core recommendations from Biden’s plan are indistinguishable from current Trump administration efforts. Specifically, the former vice president’s proposal calls for revising existing laws and regulations to ensure insurance companies waive co-pays and deductibles for coronavirus testing and “any eventual vaccine.” Although Biden’s plan has an elaborate mechanism for ensuring such payments are waived, it remains unclear if such an extensive structural change is needed. The question is especially uncertain after Trump announced on Wednesday that he had convinced insurance providers to commit to waiving the costs for coronavirus. Trump has also secured other important concessions, including the expansion of coverage for treatment across all insurance plans. While this means that an eventual vaccine for the virus would not necessarily be free, portions of the cost would likely be covered. Likewise, the former vice president’s pledge to “accelerate” the development of a vaccine is something the Trump administration has undertaken. In January, officials from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) announced they were fast-tracking the development of a coronavirus vaccine in anticipation of potential outbreak. At the time, health officials were hoping that a streamlined process would ensure the vaccine was ready for clinical trials by at least May. Biden’s proposal does not elaborate on how it would expedite the process any further, apart from stating the NIH “must be responsible for the clinical trial networks and work closely with the FDA on trial approvals.” The similarities between Biden’s proposal and what the current administration is already doing to combat the coronavirus did not escape notice on Thursday. “Joe Biden’s coronavirus remarks today sounded awfully familiar,” Andrew Clark, the Trump campaign’s rapid response director, said in an email to Breitbart News. “Listening to him, we felt a sense of déjà vu.” This is not the first time this election cycle the former vice president has attracted scrutiny for the similarities between his official proposals and other sources. In July 2019, Biden’s campaign released its policy for tackling climate change to much fanfare. Later it emerged, however, that some of the text and ideas presented had actually been borrowed, without attribution, from several high-profile climate change advocacy groups.

Soo..  Joe, and his team “crib,” or plagiarize, the ideas of others…and in this case, criticize before espousing those ideas.  Try and wrap your brain around that one.  It’s bad enough that crazy ol’ Joe is weaponizing this issue for personal political gain, and that he’s been so spectacularly wrong about the travel bans and walls, etc.   But, then the whole “cribbing” thing mentioned here.  He really has some incompetent advisers and speech writers.  He needs to get his s_it straight, before he gives another prepared speech.

Dan Crenshaw rips Biden coronavirus tweet slamming Trump actions: ‘Walls quite literally stop a virus’

U.S. Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) fired back overnight after former Vice President and Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden criticized President Trump’s actions on the coronavirus outbreak. “A wall will not stop the coronavirus,” Biden wrote on Twitter on Thursday night, attempting to link the outbreak to Trump’s signature immigration goal of a strong barrier along the U.S.-Mexico border. “Banning all travel from Europe – or any other part of the world – will not stop it,” Biden continued, taking aim at the temporary travel policy Trump announced this week. “This disease could impact every nation and any person on the planet – and we need a plan to combat it.” Biden’s tweet echoed comments he made the same day in a speech in his home state of Delaware, which he represented in the U.S. Senate for more than three decades before becoming vice president under former President Obama. But Crenshaw, a freshman Republican congressman from Texas, spotted what he viewed as flaws in Biden’s thinking and shared his thoughts in a Twitter message of his own. “First, walls quite literally stop a virus,” Crenshaw wrote. “It’s kind of the whole point of a quarantine, for instance. “Second, assuming you meant this metaphorically, health experts like Dr. Fauci and everyone else agree travel restrictions have vastly slowed the spread of the virus in the US.” Crenshaw was referring to Dr. Anthony Fauci, a respected immunologist with the National Institutes of Health who serves on the president’s Coronavirus Task Force, charged with crafting the federal government’s response to the outbreak under the direction of Vice President Mike Pence. Earlier in the week, Fauci told Fox News’ Sean Hannity there was “no question” that Trump’s initial travel restriction targeting China – epicenter of the outbreak – had helped protect the U.S. “Yes, there’s no question that if we had not done that in a timely way, there would have been many more travel-related cases from China,” Fauci said during an appearance on “Hannity.” “And as you know, the outbreak that we’re having here in the country, these cases originated from travel-related cases that came from China — and then we had the issue in Washington state and what we’re seeing now in other states. “So, coming from outside within was the thing that started it. So, I think [Trump’s travel restriction against flights from China] saved us a lot of — a lot of concern and a lot of suffering, I think.” Meanwhile, many people concerned they might have been exposed to the virus – but not yet certain, as they await testing or testing results – have voluntarily quarantined themselves in hopes of avoiding spreading the virus to others. The self-quarantining individuals have included members of Congress as well as professional sports figures — all of whom travel extensively, coming in contact with large numbers of people in multiple parts of the country, as part of their work. Democrats like Biden, who is running for president, have come under fire for using the coronavirus to score political points against Trump as the 2020 presidential election looms. The president spent part of Thursday posting Twitter messages in which he shared ways that Americans could help protect themselves, their families and co-workers from the virus.

Kudos to Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) from the great state of Texas, and former Navy SEAL officer, for calling out Joe’s idiocy.  All Joe is doing is political posturing as he works to clinch the Democrat nomination in this election year.  Let’s be honest here..  Joe is just pandering to his base.  But, in so doing, what he’s saying is dangerous because it sends a mixed message.  Dr. Fauci has made it abundantly clear that the travel restrictions/bans, and the walls on our southern border HAVE helped to contain the spread of this Wuhan virus.  Suggesting otherwise flies in the face of established FACTS, and runs contrary to what our top medical professionals have clearly stated.  Sorry, Joe.  You’re wrong.  Moron..
