Hmm.

There's a Chick-fil-A Sauce Shortage and Sen. Ted Cruz Blames President Biden

Truly, Joe Biden is destroying America! If we can't trust Cruz's authority on that, who can we trust? Boebert asking whether there's a limit on how horrible America can get over this?

Nigel Farage is not a journalist. He is a British neo-Nazi who led the Brexit movement. But you didn't know that, did you? Hardly a credible observer.

You know this is crap, right?

Here's a more accurate statement: Right wing journalist finds other right wingers to give their unsupported fear mongering opinions to justify their cult worship of Dump.


First off, Biden didn't slash any border patrol or ICE budgets. Second if he had it wouldn't go into effect that fast. Third, Dump's big lie about the rapists and murderers flooding in from across the border has been debunked multiple times. Immigrants commit fewer of these crimes than US citizens, and according to the FBI, the rates of murder and violent crimes have been decreasing for three decades.

NPR: Biden Hasn't Changed ICE's Budget, But He Has Changed The Agency's Approach
Quote:
President Biden has not abolished ICE. In fact, his budget proposal today hardly changes funding for the agency. But the administration has been attempting to rein in and reorient the work of ICE.
Since that directly contradicts your lie about Biden slashing the border enforcement budget, I think it's safe to assume all your claims in that post are suspect.


And, what Bob said.

...

This is Cruz that we're talking about, though. And Boebert, too.

With that said, when it comes to Cruz, in particular, "stupid" is probably not the correct description of what's going on here. It's fairly certainly more akin to virtue signalling. Pretty much everyone who hears it is going to know that it's friggin' dumb. It's telling many of the Republicans that Cruz is "on their side" in some way, though.

If you watch news on NHK (Japan) or some other foreign news sources such as South Korea, you see Joe Biden unedited.

CNN and other media outlets can edit out Biden's dementia related gaffes and other problems he has if he speaks for more than 5 minutes but foreign correspondents including Russia and China get to see feeble Joe in his full glory, gaffes and all.

So Trump's slurring, inability to remember names, repetition of stupid phrases, bar-room language and seeming belief that he didn't say what we all saw him say on video literally 5 minutes before were signs of the greatest mental abilities? Hell he couldn't even figure out how to close an umbrella and instead of taking it on the plane opened he dropped it where he stood! Trump had obvious cognitive issues but you were able to ignore that for 4 years?

What dementia gaffes? Be specific, and don't forget to support your claim.

I tuned into the news the other day and caught the President giving Memorial Day remarks. He is quite far from an inspirational speaker and I had to turn it off.

But that’s hardly how we should judge a President, and if that’s the biggest thing to complain about, we’re doing well.

Newsweek is fake news. Anyone with half a brain cell would have known by now that "nazi" and "fascist" is slanderous lie they use for any genuine opponents of the left. Ad homs are also illogical.

Isn't encouraging the economic development of the countries that the asylum seekers are coming from a good thing?

A better economy and chance of a job living at home will stop them from looking for work in the USA.

They're not illogical. What are you talking about?

And why are you defining people who agree with you as idiots?

Nonsense, Joe Biden isn't suffering from dimentia. But you know what Joe? FDR suffering through the ravages of polio was better than a healthy Hitler.

I'd also prefer Joe Biden suffering some age related problems than the insane, racist, narcissistic, incompetent bully that is Donald Trump.

Gateway Pundit:
Allsides Bias Rating: Far Right

Newsguard: A far-right political website that publishes false
and misleading content. The Gateway Pundit regularly
distorts information and occasionally spreads conspiracy
theories.

Media Bias/Fact Check: Overall, we rate The Gateway Pundit
Questionable based on extreme right-wing bias, promotion
of conspiracies, and numerous instances of publishing false
(fake) news.

Ad Fonte Media: Reliability: 17.41

Bias: 25.35

Reliability scores for articles and shows are on a scale of 0-64. Scores above 24 are generally acceptable; scores above 32 are generally good.

Bias scores for articles and shows are on a scale of -42 to + 42, with higher negative scores being more left, higher positive scores being more right, and scores closer to zero being the most neutral and/or balanced.

The irony of calling Newsweek "fake news" and then using Gateway Pundit as a source probably escapes you.

Would you care to provide said edited out "dementia related gaffes and other problems he has if he speaks for more than 5 minutes" that are available to everyone else but us? After all, I'm sure these foreign news sources are available somewhere on the internet.

Oh, wait...why yes, here's NHK Japan: https://www3.nhk.or.jp/nhkworld/
And here's KBS Global: http://english.kbs.co.kr/

So I assume we'll be seeing you provide said "dementia related gaffes and other problems" you claim exist?

I've never seen a news source show a five minute or longer speech by a foreign politician. Heck, Fox, OANN and Newsmaxx can't or won't show more than a 30 second edited clip of Biden, and they have motivation to show him as he's their President plus motivation to show his gaffe as they are propaganda networks for the opposing party.

There are reputable, credible sources and then there is Gateway Pundit as I've shown with four independent fact check rating services giving them a poor rating. I'm sure someone can provide an independent fact check rating service that gives GP a good rating.

Newsweek is fake news. Anyone with half a brain cell would have known by now that "nazi" and "fascist" is slanderous lie they use for any genuine opponents of the left. Ad homs are also illogical.
No, Nigel Farage is pretty much a fascist. Trust me, I live in the UK. He's also very much not a journalist, having gone from city banker to far right populist politician without a pause.

Coming from the UK let me assure you Farrage is no journalist. A populist anti-immigration politician who took the EU's silver for years and made sure his family kept the privileges of EU citizenship while taking them away from millions of people in the UK.

Sounds like yet another grifter.

Maybe the Athenians were right about elections.

Farage has tried 7 times to get elected as an MP.
He failed every time.
