“The White House abruptly cut the feed of President Biden‘s briefing on wildfires with federal and state officials.
During Monday’s visit to Boise, Idaho, Biden received a briefing about the ongoing wildfires that have plagued several states out west.
While Biden spoke for much of the briefing, at one point he said he wanted to hear more from George Geissler of the National Association of State Foresters.
BIDEN AGAIN SUGGESTS HE’S NOT CALLING THE SHOTS: ‘I’M SUPPOSED TO STOP AND WALK OUT’
“Can I ask you a question?” Biden asked.
“Of course,” Geissler responded.
“One of the things that I’ve been working on with some others is —” Biden said before being cut off mid-sentence.
The White House did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.
This isn’t the first time the White House intervened in blocking Biden from being heard by the general public. Last month, the president’s audio feed was cut as he was about to respond to a reporter’s question on his administration’s military withdrawal deadline from Afghanistan.
In March, the White House cut the feed as Biden said he was “happy to take questions” while speaking to Democratic lawmakers at a virtual event.
This latest incident comes just days after Politico reported how White House staffers will “either mute [Biden] or turn off his remarks” out of “anxiety” that he will veer away from “the West Wing’s carefully orchestrated messaging.”
Comment: This man requires high maintenance as a project focused on revolutionary transformation. How they do that is a bit of a mystery. They are dealing with senile dementia in a man who as I have written previously suffers from a delusion of centrality in the universe. Doctor Jill must play a major role in keeping him more or less under control. pl
Someone made a good observation. Biden is very likely heavily medicated. The medication kicks in strong so he can focus on reading the prompter. The problem is it kicks in so good, he starts feeling, for a brief moment, like his old self from 30 years ago. He can’t resist the urge to get in the ring even though he is instructed to stop. They are now aware of it so someone is always on the audio switch to shut down his Adderall quickening or whatever he is on immediately.
this writers remarks on biden covid mandates on 9/10 are as astute on the underlying reality as any i have read.
Agree. Biden and his revolution are going down the tubes and fast.
That’s great, but I worry about what kind of insane destructive thrashing it will do in its death throes. If only Trump could have acted a little less the boor. Desantis won’t make that mistake.
I remain concerned too. The ideologues and the cynical but extremely powerful elite behind them are desperate to have their revolutionary* transformation. The Covid ‘crisis’ is running out of steam and as tedrichard notes there is increasing pushback. I guess it’s hard to conjure up a climate ‘crisis’ event to order, which leaves me wondering about the nature of the next ‘crisis’ that’ll be used to justify unbridled State tyranny.
* revolutionary for us that is, not the elite who will of course remain in power
People follow leaders who lead from the front and who they can relate to. Even AOC is failing with her designer dresses and $30K a ticket evenings out. This is our war to lose. I have to believe that we are being heard. Trump heard us, but he was too flawed in his presentation. The next won’t be (IMO Desantis). Also, there are a bunch of veterans of our longest war(s) that are stepping up and continuing their service to the country by running for office. Some are in office now and more are well positioned for 2022 and 2024.
The current crop of elites that know that with fair elections, they’re out. That’s what worries me. No one trusts the media anymore; neither social media nor mainstream. That game is played out. Covid fear is, most appropriately, fading. All they have left is draconian EOs and messing with the vote; both of which could lead to civil war in my most humble and probably stupid opinion.
Senile under control. MAGA under control. It doesn’t matter who is POTUS or which side of the duopoly has the majority in Congress, the Party of Davos runs the show.
We see what GDP growth means. Where’s the contemporary Bastiat? All that’s old is new again.
I don’t agree. Policy is/was quite different under the two administrations.
Col. Lang, Sam (below),
Yes, Trump’s administration was trying to articulate an industrial policy, something that any serious nation really needs. As I recall, Wilbur Ross did yeoman work in this regard. Of course, this was not received with favor by the Globalists, whether of the corporatist or the communist stripe (see how that works?), and they did what they could to kneecap this right out of the blocks, and pretty successfully, I might add. Would have come in handy to stand up that satellite factory/research facility of Taiwan Semiconductor here, before the Chinese invade Taiwan, leastaways.
Tje trade adjustments insisted upon probably pissed off the CCP pretty good, and that has had downstream effects, not saying what exactly, but let your imagination run wild. Just sayin’.
My wife had a co-worker at her prior job who had grown up in the old Soviet Union. She had this reminiscence of the realities of communist economics, “First, they pay you to dig the ditch, then they pay you to fill it in, and finally, they pay you to dig the ditch again”. Sounds comparable to the circumstance in China that you reported, but that one hasn’t yet gotten to the third step.
But here’s the thing; even if the Chinese were overshooting the mark on housing, they were certainly in some fashion, building up the scientific, technological, and manufacturing capabilities of their nation, and not incidentally employing their population while training them up on tangible skills. I.e., they had an industrial policy, albeit with some degree of waste motion (and no doubt, this being China, with a lot of corruption and/or organized crime involvement).
Whereas, in the US, where every absolutely useless, or even pernicious, activity counts toward the great idol of GDP, the Fed has been throwing conjured up money, but money still oweable by future generations, at all manner of boondoggles. And what worries me the most is that this orgy of aimless waste wherein the Fed, through capitalizing retrograde investments while degrading the “full faith and credit” of the US, is almost certainly impeding capital formation needed for forward-looking entrepreneurial ventures in new technologies such as the commercialization of space, or in novel technologies for large scale energy generation that would redound to our nation’s lasting benefit.
That capital formation used to be the function of the stock market, but nowadays it looks to be a place where scam artists cobble together tranches of stinking garbage to fob off on their asshole buddies at the Fed. A new exponation of the Monster from Jeckyll Island, it is. Sooner, rather than later, this will crash the dollar, and then it’ll be “Katy, bar the door” time. And do you really think, if it comes to such a pass, that the IMF will show any mercy?
Call your elected representatives and ask them to investigate Milley. Send him to GITMO.
If the allegations of Milley’s treason are true, GITMO might not have enough facilities for punishment. From what I can gather, Milley took the risk of committing treason at Pelosi’s instigation. It would be interesting if Pelosi could be put on trial for treason. It would be even more interesting if a military tribunal could be applied to this case.
Various anonymous Internet writers are claiming the Trump knew about Milley’s lack of loyalty all along and that Trump was playing five-dimensional chess.
How was Milley promoted to Chairman of the Joint Chiefs under Trump?
One of many personnel mistakes that Trump made.
Trump claimed to appoint him for two reason.
1. Obama already fired him once before
2. Mattis hated him and refused to recommend him.
Trump considered it to be an affront to both men and….well he kind of kept his enemies closest to him. Accepting an appointment to his administration was the kiss of death. He used it purge people from popularity. It was a skill set he learned from a decade of firing people on reality TV. He was The Don.
Bring back cashiering
Above Milley there are only Austin and Biden. What do you think they will do?
I heard this from the White House with incredulity. “We’ve been patient but our patience is wearing thin.”
Presumably that message to the unvaccinated came straight off the teleprompter. From what I’m hearing the President, like most other statesmen these days, has his scripts prepared for him and delivers them word for word.
My thoughts went back to that time in 2016 when a burly character, strange and sometimes disconcerting to English ears, rumbled up to the podium and spoke ad lib, sometimes fetching out of his jacket pocket what looked like a scrumpled A4 sheet that presumably had a note or two on it; then tucking it away again and continuing on his periphrastic way.
The naysayers saw the errors and the bêtises. Those have been fodder for the crony press ever since and the crony press makes the most of them. Some saw what I saw. A real person, not a teleprompter puppet like the rest, putting forward with true conviction fresh policies, policies that promised so much more than the sterile status quo prescriptions that were all the other politicians knew to peddle.
They think they’ve got rid of him. Maybe they have. The sense of relief among the elites, in Europe as well as the States, was palpable. Back to business as before. So much more comfortable.
They’re fooling themselves. The genie’s out of the bottle now. Trump let it out. Try as they will it will not be crammed back in.
And in the meantime today’s teleprompter puppet reads his screen. “We’ve been patient but our patience is wearing thin.” And that got past script conferences and policy teams. They really mean it. That’s not to persuade the unvaccinated. Even fools know those are not words of persuasion. That is throwing down the gauntlet. That is to let all know the iron fist might be, just might be, waiting for those who don’t get in line.
I heard those words, then, with incredulity. All know the iron fist is there but seldom do we get to see it waved at us by a top politician. Not often does that get past the script conferences. The pretence of persuading or cajoling “We the People”, the whole vast industry of misinformation and misdirection that persuades and cajoles, has been cast aside and any of we the people who don’t follow the script are told to get in line or else.
I’m all for vaccination, Larry. I think without it we’d be in a hell of a mess as these new variants emerge. But the men and women of power have made a grave error if they believe those who aren’t can be dragooned like that. If they think it’s the job of those who find themselves at the top of the heap to show the iron fist to the electorate that put them there.
Throwing down the gauntlet is exactly what this is. You will be ruled, or else.
Trump did not let this genie out, here merely acted as the catalyst to bring the tyrants out into the open earlier than would otherwise have been the case.
Colonel, I should have written above “as said to Larry”, otherwise it’s unclear that the comment was submitted in the right place.
