Susan Rice, President Biden’s top domestic policy adviser, is stepping down from her post next month, according to multiple reports.
Rice, charged with the Domestic Policy Council, and a controversial figure in the Biden White House, spent her tenure directing the Biden Administration on national policy issues that have been widely criticized by both the GOP and many independents. The Biden admins immigration policy has been one of those major issues that has plagued the White House over Biden’s tenure.
While Rice has been advising and directing policy under Biden, legislative actions on health care, student loans, policing, and stringent gun control policies have exposed a progressive agenda by one of the most leftist-Democratic administration’s in U.S. history. She was on Biden’s short-list for possible vice presidential candidates and considering how Vice President Kamala Harris is doing, this columnist is certain that many in the Biden Administration would have rather that has been the case.
According to reports from the White House, Rice’s last day will be May 26, as reported by NBC news.
Although Rice worked under Obama and Clinton administrations as an expert on Foreign Policy, she had no experience in domestic policy issues. She was responsible for the creation of the Domestic Policy Council, a group that brought in policy experts to deal with domestic challenges.
I’m certain that the Biden Administration will pick another extreme progressive to replace her during Biden’s last year of his first term and before the 2024 presidential elections. The question is, why is she ending her tenure now? Is there something in the works for Rice? I sure think so.
We will continue to follow this new developing story. Stay tuned.

Hunter Biden Indicted on Federal Gun Charges Amidst Special Counsel Investigation
In a significant development, Hunter Biden, the son of President Joe Biden, was indicted on Thursday on federal gun charges as part of Special Counsel David Weiss’ ongoing investigation. The indictment alleges that Hunter Biden made false statements during the purchase of a firearm, among other charges.
The charges against Hunter Biden include:
• Making a false statement in the purchase of a firearm
• Making a false statement related to information required to be kept by a federal firearms licensed dealer
•Possession of a firearm by a person who is an unlawful user of or addicted to a controlled substance
According to the indictment, the alleged incident occurred on or about October 12, 2018, in the District of Delaware. Hunter Biden is accused of knowingly making a false and fictitious written statement during the acquisition of a Colt Cobra 38SPL Revolver. According to reports from Fox News, the statement, submitted on Form 4473, falsely certified that he was not an unlawful user of, and addicted to, any stimulant, narcotic drug, or controlled substance.
Furthermore, the indictment further states that between October 12, 2018, and October 23, 2018, in the District of Delaware, Hunter Biden knowingly possessed the same firearm despite being an unlawful user of and addicted to controlled substances. This marks the first set of charges brought by Special Counsel David Weiss against Hunter Biden since being granted special counsel status.
The investigation came to public attention when it was reported by Fox News in 2021 that police had responded to an incident in 2018 involving a gun owned by Hunter Biden.
Reports state that, Hallie Biden, the widow of President Biden’s late son, Beau, who was in a relationship with Hunter at the time, discarded the gun. Hunter’s gun was thrown away in a dumpster near a market, located close to a school. It was subsequently revealed that Hunter Biden had purchased a gun earlier that same month.
Hunter Biden’s legal troubles do not end with the gun charges. Earlier in July, an original plea agreement collapsed, which would have seen him plead guilty to two misdemeanor tax counts for willful failure to pay federal income tax, thus avoiding jail time on a felony gun charge. Instead, he pleaded not guilty to two misdemeanor tax charges and one felony gun charge.
Attorney General Merrick Garland appointed David Weiss as special counsel to oversee the Hunter Biden investigation and related matters. The White House has declined to comment on these developments, which continue to draw significant public and media attention.
