Don Jr. Humiliates Himself And His Old Man By Comparing The Failed Former POTUS To Joe Biden

Bless his coal-black, shrunken heart, Donald Trump Jr. just cannot avoid owning himself as he engages in being a dutiful son/sycophant for a father who couldn’t possibly care less about him and has long ago made it clear that Ivanka is his favorite child that he wanted to have sex with when she was only 13.

According to Junior, his father is far more accomplished in his four failed years as president than the current head of state, Joe Biden.

Don Jr. made his claim on Instagram, because apparently he doesn’t like Twitter now that the platform banned his father for being a lying, traitorous sack of shit:

How pathetic can one person be? Well there’s Don Jr. pathetic and everyone else is in a distant second place.

That was all it took for social media to light up with derision and mockery of Traitor Tot:

It’s going to be so much fun to watch in the months ahead as members of the Trump family start to turn on each other in exchange for a reduced prison sentence.

President Biden Will Take On The Gun Violence Problem With Sweeping Executive Actions: Report

Later today, President Joe Biden will unveil a sweeping package of executive actions to decrease gun violence in the United States, a move that is almost certain to enrage Republicans and those on the right who believe the Second Amendment is absolute, even though the U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that it isn’t.

Politico reports that the planned executive actions are meant to help control some of the biggest problems with guns in America, especially as the landscape of the weapons market continues to evolve as technology allows for new ways to possess weapons of mass murder:

“Among the actions Biden will take will be to direct the Department of Justice to begin, within 30 days, the process of requiring buyers of so-called ghost guns — homemade or makeshift firearms that lack serial numbers — to undergo background checks and, within 60 days, regulating concealed assault-style firearms, according to the White House.”

The action to better regulate assault weapons will likely draw major resistance on the right, but the National Rifle Association (NRA) is badly weakened and currently in bankruptcy court after bilking its members out of millions of dollars that were spent on luxury items for the top brass of the pro-gun organization. That means the NRA won’t be able to marshal organized resistance to Biden’s executive orders.

Biden will be joined at the announcement by Attorney General Merrick Garland, and is expected to task the Department of Justice with making it easier take weapons from those deemed a danger to themselves or others:

“Biden will also direct the Department of Justice to provide states within 60 days with proposed red flag legislation that would permit courts to order the temporary removal of firearms from a person who may be a danger to themselves or others and issue a comprehensive report on firearms trafficking, according to the White House. The last report was completed in 2000. In addition, Biden will direct five federal agencies to redirect money to help prevent community violence. The Department of Health and Human Services will also help teach states how they can use Medicaid money for gun violence prevention.”

As you’d expect, carping from gun fetishists has already begun before Biden even unveils his plan, with the National Shooting Sports Foundation, the trade association for the firearms industry, remarking:

“Where those orders exceed his lawful authority and usurp the power of Congress to make law, NSSF will take all appropriate steps to protect the interests of our industry and the Second Amendment rights of our customers.”

But executive actions related to public safety are difficult to challenge in court, so the pro-gun camp may find they have almost no way to effectively fight the president’s new orders.

No matter what Biden does, you can count on the gun crowd asserting that the president wants to take guns away from everyone, even though that’s nothing but a lie they recycle anytime gun control is discussed in Washington.

Joe Biden Is Reversing Trump’s Attempt To Pack The Courts With Extremist Judges

During his four years in office, failed one-term former President Donald Trump made a lot of appointments to the federal bench, including two right-wing Supreme Court justices, Brett Kavanaugh and Amy Coney Barrett.

But that was only part of the impact Trump left on the federal bench, Washington Monthly notes:

“With Sen. Mitch McConnell’s help, the Senate became a judicial confirmation factory. Not counting the Supreme Court, Trump got 231 judges with lifetime appointments confirmed. No president got more lower court judges confirmed in a single term since Jimmy Carter.

“After flipping three Circuit Courts from majority-Democratic to majority-Republican, Trump left office with 7 of the 13 appellate-level courts staffed by a majority of Republican appointments. And when counting up all of the appellate-level and district-level judges at the end of Trump’s presidency, Republicans had more: 17 more to be exact.”

Yet despite all of the judicial appointments McConnell managed to get confirmed, President Joe Biden is on the verge of reversing nearly all of the gains Trump made during his term in office:

“Biden’s first set of judicial nominations this week is the beginning of something big: almost certainly by the end of this Congress, the majority of lower court seats will be filled by Democratic appointees.”

Yes, you read that correctly: By the time the current Congress is finished in 2022, the majority of lower court seats in the federal system will be held Democratic appointees.

But that’s not all the good news.

There are also rumblings that some of the current Republican-appointed Supreme Court justices could also be ready to retire. The name most often mentioned is Clarence Thomas, who is 73 and reportedly tired of being on the bench.

Justice Stephen Breyer, who was appointed by President Bill Clinton in 1994, may also be close to retiring, since he’s been on the bench for almost 30 years and is 83 years old.

Even if Thomas and Breyer stay on the high court, many of the lower courts are about to be populated by Democratic appointees, and that means decisions will be favorable to the Biden administration as its moves forward with its legislative agenda.

In other words, Donald and Mitch may have thought they had hijacked the courts, but it turns out their efforts are about to come to naught.

Trumpers Are Absolutely Livid Joe Biden Isn’t Painting The Border Wall

Joe Biden won the 2020 election. That’s a certified fact that no right-winger can possibly dispute.

And yet, to hear a lot of the Trumpers tell it, Biden should be following up on his predecessor’s policies and make sure they’re seen through to a conclusion.

Such is the case with Trump’s infamous wall on the U.S.-Mexico border, funding for which has been eliminated by Biden because it’s a massive waste of money and won’t actually work, not to mention that the majority of Americans don’t support building such a structure.

But to hear Trump adviser Jason Miller tell it, Biden should at least agree to paint the sections of the wall that were built while Trump was still president.

According to Mediaite, Miller had this to say on The Michael Berry Show:

“All of his hard work. They won’t even paint the wall. They were supposed to paint the wall this month. So it would be a black color as opposed to the rust color because elements and such. And Biden has even stopped that.”

If the wall is so damn effective and awesome, why does it need to be painted? Will the paint magically deter those seeking to enter the United States? And why should another dime be spent on this waste of taxpayer funds?

Miller went on to whine about the way the Biden administration is handling the surge of immigrants coming to the border and seeking asylum:

“To make matters worse, Joe Biden throws gasoline all over the fire by putting Kamala Harris, Mrs. Open Borders herself, in charge of the entire Southern border? I mean if this doesn’t scare the you-know-what out of you, it should.”

First of all, there is no crisis on the border. What’s happening is a seasonal influx of immigrants and it takes place each and every year.

Also, Joe Biden won the election by being the antithesis of Donald Trump. So why in the world he suddenly start carrying on Trump’s policies?

Lindsey Graham Is Furious That Joe Biden Won’t Abuse Migrant Kids The Way Trump Did

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) likes to pretend that he’s a decent and compassionate human being, but he isn’t.

Ever since he attached himself to failed, one-term former President Donald Trump like a human carbuncle, Graham has become even more far right-wing and extremist in his policy stances and statements, almost as if he’s trying to become some sort of newfangled version of Trump. Call it Trump 2.0.

A perfect example can be found in remarks Graham made in a video he posted on Twitter on Thursday afternoon, just minutes after President Joe Biden held his first formal press conference since taking office.

In the video (which you can see below), Graham suggested that President Biden had made the problem of immigration worse, and he seemed to suggest that he’s angry because Biden won’t agree to be as cruel and inhumane to migrant children as Trump was:

“President Biden’s news conference today has made all of our immigration problems worse. . His announcement that were are going to open up 5,000 beds for unaccompanied minors is going to increase the flow. It’s clear to me that President Biden doesn’t know the basics of our own immigration system…This whole idea of doing away with the remain in Mexico policy where people had to wait for their asylum date is going to lead to a tsunami this summer.”

As you might expect, Graham was lying, and he got busted by the Washington Post, which noted that the current increase in migration on the U.S-Mexico border fits an established pattern that happens every year at this time:

“We analyzed monthly U.S. Customs and Border Protection data from 2012 through February and found no clear evidence that the overall increase in border crossings in 2021 can be attributed to Biden administration policies. Rather, the current increase fits a pattern of seasonal changes in undocumented immigration combined with a backlog of demand because of 2020s coronavirus border closure.”

As a matter of fact, the entire narrative that there’s a sudden “crisis” at the border is complete bullshit. What’s currently happening happens each and every year. It happened under Trump. It happened under Obama. It happened under Bush. So to try and pretend this is something new is an enormous lie.

Of course, as we’ve seen on too many occasions to count, Graham and the vast majority of the Republican Party are only too happy to lie. It has become their default position. They think lying worked great for Trump, completely forgetting that his lies about COVID-19 were one the main reasons he got so badly beaten by Biden.

Lindsey Graham is furious that the current president won’t act like a heartless bastard and toss migrant children into cages. But as the American electorate made clear last November, we’re better than that, and we don’t intend to ever go back to the bad old days again.

Here’s Lindsey’s video:
