New York Times questions President Biden’s ‘Boundaries’ of ‘the Presidency’

When even the New York Times writes a report showing concern for the capabilities and mental acuity of President Joe Biden, you know we are beyond repair.

Over the weekend, the New York Times reported they worry that Biden will “trip on a wire” because of the way he shuffles as he walks, and are concerned with his repeated gaffes.

The report title reads “At 79, Biden is Testing the Boundaries of Age and the Presidency.”

“I do feel it’s inappropriate to seek that office after you’re 80 or in your 80s,” said David Gergen, a presidential adviser dating back to the Nixon era. “I have just turned 80 and I have found over the last two or three years I think it would have been unwise for me to try to run any organization. You’re not quite as sharp as you once were.”

The Times report noted that in public, Biden will often lose his train of thought or struggle to recall details.

He’s referred to Vice President Kamala Harris as “President Harris” several times and still stumbles over his words, despite overcoming a stutter from childhood.

According to the report, White House aides say they don’t carve out accommodations for Biden, but privately, they try to protect his weekends away in Delaware.

Biden’s trip to the Middle East on Tuesday was originally scheduled immediately after he traveled last month to the NATO and the G7 summits. The trip was split up over fears it could unnecessarily tax the president, the report said.

Biden’s evening hours are limited and he has given less than half as many news conferences or interviews as some of his predecessors. “Biden has given 38 interviews, compared to 116 for Trump, 198 for Barack Obama, 71 for George W. Bush and 75 for Bill Clinton, the Times said.”

But Biden has taken questions more often after a speech or other event — 290 times, compared to Trump’s 213 and Obama’s 64. However, Biden’s aides often need to step in to end Biden’s response to questions.

Growing IRS is Biggest Police State Expansion in History

The Democrats’ new reconciliation bill is “going to be the largest expansion of the domestic police state in American history” reports The Federalist. The Federal Government “already collects $4.1 trillion every year—or $12,300 for every citizen” yet believes it “needs 80 new battalions of new IRS cops.”

The job posting itself listed prerequisites for agents who can “Carry a firearm and be willing to use deadly force, if necessary.” White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre promised that the IRS wouldn’t engage in new audits of anyone making under $400,000, an attempt at saying, essentially, the middle class is ‘safe.’

Connecticut’s Chris Murphy also said that the bill was passed to stop an “epidemic of tax cheating amongst the millionaires and billionaires” and promised that “audit rates won’t increase for anyone making under $400K.”

“This is a lie” adds The Federalist. “Nothing in the bill that Democrats passed through the Senate limits audits. Murphy, along with every other Democrat in the Senate, voted against a Republican amendment that would have prevented new agents from auditing individuals and small businesses with less than $400,000 of taxable income.”

The IRS doesn’t simply collect taxes, it also enforces speech codes. The Federalist reminds readers:

This is what empowered Lois Lerner to target conservatives groups – “crazies and “a—holes” — who used words like “Tea Party” or “patriots” in their names. But, even at the time, leftists at The New York Times editorial board praised the IRS for going after conservative groups because they did not “primarily” engage in “social welfare,” and so did not deserve an exemption under Section 501(c)(4) of the tax code. Has anything in the evolution of the Democratic Party given you confidence that such power would not be abused or that an engorged IRS would be immune from political pressure?

Wrestling with a insanely complex tax code — nearly 8 million words — costs Americans billions every year. Rather than flattening and simplifying this astonishingly convoluted code, which not only would have saved citizens but the government money, Democrats decided we needed up to another 87,000 people to enforce it.
