Joe Biden compared Republican measures to combat voter fraud and error to the regime of laws and practices used to oppress American POC after the Civil War. That right there is some major obtusity. Is it deliberate? In some cases, yes, but in other cases I think these people are sincere, which if so calls […]

‘I Don’t Know, To Be Clear’: Biden’s Painful Press Conference

 

The President’s first press conference has just concluded. Joe Biden mumbling and stumbling his way through an hour of sympathetic softballs proved, once again, that he is not up to the job. He hasn’t “lost a step,” he’s lost the whole staircase. Even his media boosters couldn’t maintain the charade.

Biden strained to keep up with his scripted briefing document, calling one hand-selected reporter at a time. Each question was a mild critique from the far left.

FINALLY! Climate Alarmists on Defensive; Fox News States ‘Skeptics’ Have Science on Their Side — Jim Lakely

 

Wednesday evening was the second night in a row the new report from the Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change (NIPCC) was featured on “Special Report with Bret Baier” on the Fox News Channel. It should be noted: Baier’s show destroys its competition on cable news with about 1.7 million viewers each night.

FNC covered the press conference the Heartland Institute and NIPCC held Wednesday morning at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. It informed a fantastic story from Doug McKelway, who said the NIPCC report presents “a torrent of new data… poking very large holes in what the President has called the scientific consensus about global warming.”
