I think assigning the VP to handle the border issues should blunt the criticism that Biden isn’t taking the border seriously. Of course, I’m hoping conservatives suddenly become rational adults instead of simply changing the goal posts.

The White House was limiting media access on Wednesday’s tour, keeping it to just one TV crew.

The above is completely wrong. What is the White House trying to hide? Even anti-democracy media like Fox, Breitbart, RT etc. should be permitted to see what's going on and be able to report from their perspective, as wack as that perspective might be. A free, for-profit press is critical to democracies.

It’s likely for health and safety reasons related to covid.

This is not surprising since the White House issued a memorandum insisting that the once Biden administration now be referred to as the Biden-Harris administration. 

I fail to see how there's anything wrong with that.

I would much rather see Harris take the lead on several vital aspects of the presidency then... Biden's son-in-law.

Well, like the reporter told Psaki: the White House itself can release photos to the media. But as usual, Psaki said she’ll circle back—just in different words. But basically the media is being denied access.

Except for the one TV crew, but it was likely comprised of lizard people working on behalf of the Deep State with funding from Soros.

Hilarious!

So today it’s a “challenge” and no longer a “crisis”.

Yep. It’s clearly a conspiracy by the liberal MSM to protect Biden. They all had a conference call last night and agreed to change the adjective used to describe the mess Trump left at the border.

One obvious way to stop the root causes would be for the US to send reparations for its repeated coups against and interference in socialist Latin American nations, along with an apology, and pledge to let the people it its "back yard" determine their own destinies. But that isn't good for American corporations, so.

The truth will set you free, but you’re wrong about the liberal MSM. The MSM are corporations. The MSM being only one tentacle that seek power, control and mindless followers. Biden is just an old screwdriver in a high tech tool box.

Appreciate the correction. Conspiracy theories aren't what I spend time on, so it’s nice to have an expert.

.....that they themselves caused with their open invitation. Tapping the fox to guard the henhouse.

.....that they themselves caused with their open invitation.

Was it an engraved invitation? Did the recipients have to rsvp? I ask because I didn’t see any invitation, but you clearly know something the rest of us don’t. Don’t be shy, share with us where we can get accurate information.

Read between the lines.

50% of Democrat’s believe he has dementia, and, she is the biggest threat to his presidency.

Send her off to border to fight an impossible war, her ratings will be down. He can blame her for the immigration failure.

-7 ( +5 / -12 )

Her decades of success in all of her prior roles make her uniquely equipped to sort out the mess left by Orange. She should also be put in charge of fighting domestic violent extremism. And of ending the senseless mass slaughter of innocents in mass shootings.

‘that will leave Joe with the time to focus on crucial matters like purging the military, working towards a more equitable and free society and creating a fully diverse team to run the country.

I have often seen in the big firms that I have worked for that the CEO will assign the hardest projects to an ambitious one-down who thinks he is next in line for the big seat. If the project succeeds, the CEO will take the credit and if it does not then the one-down is shown his place in the world. Seems that Biden is not as dumb as some think he is.

The kraken? Trump's personal attorney claimed in court no reasonable people would believe her, using the same defense Fox lawyers use to defend Tucker Carlson's tuckercarlsons.

Problem solved. As a daughter of immigrants she is uniquely qualified to deal with this

-1 ( +4 / -5 )

I'm hopeful, but this is doomed to fail regardless of how great any plan is.

Most people in the US (nearly all) are from immigrants, so her story isn't really all that unique on the immigration front. Many lawyers come from immigrant families too, so that really isn't that unique either.

For now, I'm willing to see what her team comes up with on immigration. It will never be far enough for some and it will be way too far for others, but doing nothing hasn't been working either. If Joe decides to step down in 2 yrs, she will become President and likely be elected 2 times unless the GOP can flush 80% of their people and become a party of ideas, not just blocking everything and lying.

Biden is already proving himself to be an ineffectual president, devoid of leadership and completely out of his depth.

Having visited California early last year I saw first hand the damage caused by Democratic liberal policy.

Why? For not carrying the lefts talking points about the border?

RT?....

So let’s not have journalists ask questions, darn those conservatives for not falling in line and painting a fine face on this administration.

Of course, once you tell anyone of a poor nation to come, they’re going to take you seriously, now that they’re exposed as frauds and we see the facilities on how horrible the conditions are, these people can’t eat crow fast enough.

Odd how cheerleaders for 45 applauded his refusing to answer questions from the press.

Damn them for lapping up and regurgitating the lies the previous junta told.

Once again reading skills are difficult for far rightists. Now wonder they only read headlines and parrot the tuckercarlsons they hear on Fox.

Has nothing to do with the left trying to cover up for this administration, the townspeople and government officials as well as the CBP want an end to this, the left has a fundamental problem with reality concerning the border.

Now wonder they only read headlines and parrot the tuckercarlsons they hear on Fox.

No, they’re just angry that FOX is the only conservatives network that the Dems and social media can’t control or touch and it’s driving them crazy.

Why would "the left" cover up for yet another disappointing Government?

If the conservatives here actually talked with left wing people (rather than ascribe the term to everyone who isn't far right) you'd find a lot of them don't rate Biden at all.

Why would "the left" cover up for yet another disappointing Government?

By not allowing Journalists to view the facilities all even CNN the Biden cheerleading network criticized this administration for not being open and more transparent on this serious issue.

If the conservatives here actually talked with left wing people

We are trying to, so please don’t make excuses for the liberals.

I'm not making excuses for the liberals. I'm talking about actual people on the left.

You appear not to be able to discern the difference.
