“When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men in a society, over the course of time they create for themselves a legal system that authorizes it and a moral code that glorifies it." -- Frédéric Bastiat, French economist

A pair of vulnerable Congressional Democrats vocally admitted this week that they believe President Joe Biden will lose reelection in November to former President Donald Trump.

Both Jared Golden, D-ME, and Marie Gluesenkamp Perez, D-WA, cited Biden’s performance in last week’s presidential debate – which was widely panned by critics from across the political spectrum.

Golden and Gluesenkamp Perez both represent Republican-leaning districts that Trump won in 2020 by seven and four points respectively.

In a Tuesday op-ed published by The Bangor Daily News, Golden wrote that “Biden’s poor performance in the debate was not a surprise … because the outcome of this election has been clear to me for months.”

“While I don’t plan to vote for him,” the Maine lawmaker stated, “Donald Trump is going to win. And I’m OK with that.”

The Democratic-leaning corporate media, consisting of outlets like MSNBC and CNN, have been lying consistently and vociferously about Joe Biden’s mental acuity for years now. Despite the president’s obvious decline, the likes of Anderson Cooper, Joe Scarborough, Joy Reid and many others have claimed that video showing Biden’s cognitive failures were “cheap fakes” and that Biden remains “sharp as a tack.”

Payroll moves down (in new jobs) are looking a little less like head fakes (or just getting better at it) as they are down in June for the 4th month in a row. Before anyone makes too much of that, though, I’d point out that this still leaves them higher than they were from August through November of last year when inflation had just started its long trek back upward, unseen because it was buried in the numbers no one was looking at that were faithfully noted all along the way here as a force that would break out in open view for all to see this year. However, these numbers by ADP, the payroll processing company, have consistently been lower than the Biden-his-time administration numbers for nine of the last ten months. So, someone might be overstating the truth just a little to look good for the election.

Why $30,000 a year? Several reasons. One, it's a full-time wage at $15/hour, a rate that is (or will be) minimum wage in some states and two, it's about half of the median annual earnings of full-time workers in the US. In other words, it's within reach of most workers with a few years of experience. $30K a year is $2,500 a month. Average Social Security/Medicare and income tax withholding is around 22%, or $550 a month, leaving the wage earner $1,950 net income. Self-employed people have to pay the employers' share of Social Security/Medicare on top of the employees' half--an additional 7.65%, a total of 15.3%. (Yes, that's a big chunk. You get used to it. Render unto Caesar that which is Caesar's.) That pushes their withholding closer to 30%, leaving around $1,750 to $1,800 a month income net of withholding.

Is this the real reason the media has turned on President Biden? 

From New York Times, "Biden's Lapses Are Said to Be Increasingly Common and Worrisome":
 

Aides present in the Situation Room the night that Iran hurled a barrage of missiles and drones at Israel portrayed a president in commanding form, lecturing Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu by phone to avoid a retaliatory escalation that would have inflamed the Middle East. "Let me be crystal clear," Mr. Biden said. "If you launch a big attack on Iran, you're on your own."

Mr. Netanyahu pushed back hard, citing the need to respond in kind to deter future attacks. "You do this," Mr. Biden said forcefully, "and I'm out." Ultimately, the aides noted, Mr. Netanyahu scaled back his response.

It's incredible to watch how the media went from shilling Biden to demanding he step aside.

Those with access to President Joe Biden behind closed doors say that his condition is deteriorating at an accelerated rate as he continues to face growing calls to step aside as the party’s presidential nominee this fall following his disastrous debate performance last week, according to reports.

The New York Times reported that those closest to Biden have noticed that he “increasingly appeared confused or listless, or would lose the thread of conversations” and that these incidents are “growing more frequent, more pronounced and more worrisome.”

Biden was so worn out from trips to Europe prior to last week’s debate that he had to be “given time for an afternoon nap each day” during his week-long debate prep — in which he never started work earlier than 11 a.m. — in order to recharge his batteries.

United States President Joe Biden has pledged to stay in the presidential race, despite media reports he was assessing an exit following a dismal debate showing against his Republican challenger, former President Donald Trump, last week.

Biden was resolute when he joined a call with campaign staff on Wednesday, despite growing concern about the 81-year-old’s viability in the race in November against Trump, including from members of his own party.

“I am running,” Biden said during the call, two sources told the Reuters news agency. He added he would not be pushed out as the Democratic Party’s nominee.

First son Hunter Biden has been joining West Wing meetings with his father since President Biden returned to the White House on Monday — as the oldest-ever sitting president resists calls from fellow Democrats to step aside, The Post has confirmed.

Scandal-plagued Hunter, 54, who was convicted June 11 of three federal gun felonies and is scheduled for a second federal trial Sept. 5 for $1.4 million in alleged tax fraud, is an advocate of his 81-year-old dad continuing to seek a second term as the Biden family reportedly blames longtime advisers for the president’s dismal Thursday debate performance.

“Hunter doesn’t trust” his father’s old guard of aides, one source told The Post. “I think Hunter wants to be there, and POTUS isn’t going to say no.”

The Economist, tossed Joe Biden under the bus on Independence Day.

Their new cover reads “No way to run a country” with the photo of a walker with the presidential seal.
Their report begins:

The presidential debate was awful for Joe Biden, but the cover-up has been worse. It was agony to watch a befuddled old man struggling to recall words and facts. His inability to land an argument against a weak opponent was dispiriting. But the operation by his campaign to deny what tens of millions of Americans saw with their own eyes is more toxic than either, because its dishonesty provokes contempt.

The globalist warmongers who read this prestigious journal have known about Joe Biden’s dementia for years. But suddenly, after Donald Trump beat Old Joe soundly in the CNN presidential debate, the international left is even coming out against America’s worst president.

A second Democratic Congressman has suggested that Joe Biden should withdraw from the 2024 presidential race after his calamitous debate performance last week.

Amid growing panic among the left about Biden’s rapidly declining cognitive abilities, growing numbers of Democrats are now publicly calling on the 81-year-old to call it quits.

The latest to do so is Arizona Rep. Raúl Grijalva, who told The New York Times that Biden has a “responsibility” to the party to step aside.

“If he’s the candidate, I’m going to support him, but I think that this is an opportunity to look elsewhere,” Grijalva said. “What he needs to do is shoulder the responsibility for keeping that seat — and part of that responsibility is to get out of this race.”

Democrats have a ready-made replacement if Joe Biden stands aside before November's election.

She's been vetted. Her election would be historic. And she would easily take up the Biden mantle.

There's one problem: Her name is Kamala Harris and by every measure she is the most unpopular vice president in American history – and among the least likely people to defeat Donald Trump in a general election fight. 

But Democrats may be stuck with her anyway.

Former Democratic National Committee chairwoman Donna Brazile explained the party's challenge most succinctly.

A New Zealand woman who was killed in front of her horrified husband at an upscale California mall by a group of robbers has been pictured for the first time. 

Patricia 'Trish' McKay, 68, and her husband Doug were at the Fashion Island Mall, in Newport Beach, when they were approached by two men on Tuesday. 

A struggle ensued, with one of the men fleeing the scene on foot and firing several rounds with a handgun as he did so, according to reports.

McKay was then dragged into the parking lot as the two men got into a car being driven by a third. 

As the suspects made their escape, they ran over McKay and continued firing shots as they led police on a high-speed chase.
