Democrat presidential hopeful Joe Biden spoke in Hudson, New Hampshire, this week and told attendees that it is “rational” to prohibit “50 clips in a weapon.” Ryan Saavedra quoted Biden maligning the absence of “a rational policy” that makes it illegal to have “20, 30, 40, 50 clips in a weapon.” Also in Hudson, Biden intimated that gun owners who cling to their AR-15s and AK-47s are no match for the government. He made reference to gun owners who quote Thomas Jefferson’s statement on the tension that exists between free men and the rulers who wish to subjugate them, a statement that includes Jefferson’s observation that “the tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots & tyrants.” Biden then said, “Those who say ‘the tree of liberty is watered with the blood of patriots’ — a great line, well, guess what: The fact is, if you’re going to take on the government, you need an F-15 with Hellfire missiles. There is no way an AK-47 is going to take care of you if you’re worried about the government knocking down your door.” He also stressed his belief that the right to keep and bear arms is limited, saying, “There is a Second Amendment, and you do have a right to bear arms but not an unlimited right.” He added, “The Constitution does not say anybody can own a weapon; it says only certain people can own weapons.”
Wow… Just think, crazy ol’ Joe is a former Senator and former Vice President of these United States, and he’s saying such spectacularly, factually incorrect statements like this. I’ve got the Constitution and the Bill of Rights right here in front of me, and NOWHERE does the Second Amendment specify who can, and who cannot own a weapon. As for the clips comment… C’mon.. We all know he means “rounds;” not clips. So, on that minor gaffe, we’ll give him a minor pass. But, he’s SO out-of-touch, and being 77, his age is showing. Joe should have just stayed retired. Now, he’s just making a fool of himself each time he gets on stage. Ya almost feel sorry for him.. It’s unlikely he’ll get the Dem nomination now, and even if he somehow pulls that off, he’d get destroyed and humiliated by Trump.
Here in Washington, our leaders spent the week focused on the Middle East, on Iran. But out there and the rest of the country, there are plenty of more pressing concerns — tangible concerns. For example, many of our cities are starting to fail. Infrastructure is aging; both crime and the cost of living are surging, and left-wing prosecutors have stopped enforcing the law. But for the leading Democratic presidential candidate, Joe Biden of Delaware, none of these problems matches what he believes is the greatest crisis of all — America isn’t importing enough desperately poor people. That’s his position. In a tweet on January 5, Biden lashed out at President Trump for his immigration policies: “Our Statue of Liberty invites in the tired, the poor, the huddled masses yearning to breathe free. Donald Trump has slammed the door in the face of families fleeing persecution and violence.” What a moralizer that Joe Biden is. Just a few months ago, Biden vowed that when he becomes president he’ll admit two million poor immigrants overnight, and then increase that number from there. Joe Biden, “We could afford to take in a heartbeat another two million people. The idea that a country of 330 million people cannot absorb people who are in desperate need and who are justifiably fleeing oppression is absolutely bizarre. Absolutely bizarre. I would also move to increase the total number of immigrants able to come to the United States.” How many of those immigrants will be staying at Joe Biden’s house? At Joe Biden’s expense? Zero. Of course, Biden’s view is that our chief mission as a nation is to admit as many poor people as we can possibly can. The less impressive their country of origin, the less they’re able to contribute to this country, the more we want them. You are rich, they are poor, therefore you must give them money, the right to vote, a permanent home. And once you’ve done that, then repeat it. Biden claims that’s our moral duty, and that Donald Trump and anyone else who shirks that duty is a racist. But is Trump shirking that duty? Is the basic claim even true? It’s worth assessing. There is so much lying. So once again, we go to the numbers, and here’s what they are. From October 2018 to September 2019, the Border Patrol apprehended 977,000 people at the U.S.-Mexico border. That’s the highest total in more than a decade and more than the previous two years combined. Now keep in mind that’s just the people being caught at the southern border. Many more are getting through without being caught, of course, and then there are the tens or hundreds of thousands of others who enter legally but then overstay their visas. These illegal immigrants are tethering themselves here with millions of anchor babies. It’s not a talking point. It’s a fact. According to the Center for Immigration Studies, for example, 372,000 children of illegal aliens were born in this country just last year. Every one of them is now an American citizen, and their parents are benefiting from a whole suite of benefits — food stamps, Medicaid, other programs. And, of course, they won’t be deported now. Wonder how we got 22 million illegal immigrants? That’s how. So by any actual measure, by the data, illegal immigration is worse than it has been in a long time. But for Joe Biden, it’s still not enough. 22 million illegals? Why not 30 million or 50 million? And every one of them gets free health care paid for by you. That’s his promise. Is your country really so spectacularly rich that we can afford this? And, of course, you know the answer. We’re not a rich country. We are more than $20 trillion in debt. Our middle class is dying, in part because immigrants are willing to work for less and have driven down wages. — This doesn’t make the immigrants bad. They’re coming from incredibly poor places with totally different standards of living. But it’s an economic fact that when you flood the labor pool with people willing to work for less, wages go down. And that’s been going on for decades. Not surprisingly, America’s most immigrant-heavy state, California, is also the most impoverished. Many people born in California can’t leave quickly enough. Just ask Idaho and Texas. But Joe Biden says we need more. According to Biden, our country is a sanctuary — must be a sanctuary — for those fleeing violence. But because Joe Biden knows nothing, he is not aware that some of America’s cities are deadlier than the places those people are fleeing from. For example, El Salvador. One-third of all living El Salvadorans live in this country now. But here are the numbers: El Salvador has 50 murders per 100,00 people. Last year, Baltimore — not a country, the city in Maryland — Baltimore had 51 per 100,00. In other words, it is more dangerous than El Salvador. Baltimore clearly hasn’t benefited — at all — from America’s policy of unlimited immigration. But you know, none of this matters because for people like Joe Biden and the rest of this country’s ruling class. Helping American citizens stopped being the point a long time ago. The point is getting reelected and feeling virtuous.
Yeah.. No kidding! Thanks to veteran journalist Tucker Carlson for that outstanding op/ed. It’s refreshing for someone like Tucker, who was at CNN, then MSNBC before landing at Fox News, actually call out the real numbers of illegal aliens in this country; over 22 MILLION. We’ve been saying that here at The Daily Buzz for almost 6 years, while the Democrats and the dominantly liberal mainstream media have used the figure of 11 million; a figure they’ve used for over 20 years, and yet somehow that number hasn’t changed in that time, because it would undermine their false narrative, as it relates to the illegal immigration crisis in this country. Thanks Tucker!!
Former Vice President Joseph R. Biden either called for the banning of most handguns or displayed basic misunderstanding of the simplest of firearms terminology. Campaigning Monday in Iowa, Mr. Biden demanded the elimination of “magazines that can hold multiple bullets in them,” calling such a ban so obvious that only ill motive could explain it. “The idea that we don’t have elimination of assault-type weapons, magazines that can hold multiple bullets in them is absolutely mindless. It is no violation of the 2nd Amendment. It’s just a bow to the special interests of the gun manufacturers and the NRA,” he said at a Labor Day picnic in Cedar Rapids. The phrase “magazines that can hold multiple bullets” raised eyebrows, though. Ryan Saavedra of the Daily Wire explained why, while posting the clip. “Joe Biden makes the most extreme gun-control push of all the 2020 Democrat presidential candidates: Biden calls for banning ‘magazines that can hold multiple bullets in them.’ All magazines hold ‘multiple bullets,’ that’s the point. This call from Biden would ban most handguns,” Mr. Saavedra wrote. With the exception of old-fashioned revolvers, whose basic design concept has remained unchanged since the six-shooters of the Old West, modern-design handguns store multiple bullets in magazines.
Crazy ol’ Joe is the gift that keeps on giving.. Honestly, he’s not firing on all thrusters these days, and really should just retire. He’s trying hard to pander to his liberal constituency during this primary season, and in the process making verbal gaffes like this on an almost daily basis. Even his handlers are getting frustrated trying to get him to stay on script. We just hope Joe continues to run his mouth and say things like this. 🙂
