Why is the *President fighting for non-citizens “right” to vote in a state where their voters outlawed it!
It seems as though the administration is willing break historic protocols to insure uniformity in the ranks. The firing of multiple independent appointments—specifically appointments designed to establish independent oversight integrity—must be curtailed because they believe too strongly in silly ideas like the first amendment.
“At the time I was nominated, I was asked if I would commit to do my best to fulfill my four-year term, and I answered yes,” Gustafson said in a letter to Biden. “Unless prevented from doing so, I intend to honor that commitment. I have confidently given this advice to countless embattled clients of the last 25 years: hold your head high, do your best work, and do not resign under pressure. In solidarity with them, I will follow that advice.”
Gustafson was appointed in March 2018 by former President Trump and was confirmed by the Senate in August 2019 to a four-year term, which Biden wanted cut short. The EEOC is an independent agency within the federal government.
“So far as I know, no previous General Counsel has been fired for being appointed by the wrong political party,” Gustafson wrote.
Anyone paying attention even half way in recent weeks has to note the unusual path that events have transpired on.
The newly elected President has yet to host a live press conference. The uncomfortable incident of the President having his zoom feed cut when he attempted to take a few questions last week went viral. The hardened left White House Press Corp is beginning to complain about lack of access. And Press Secretary Jen Psaki seems to have no clarification on where the President stands on a daily variety of issues. It almost feels as though the President has spent zero time interfacing with his number one mouthpiece.
Add to that the fact that Biden has punted on important discussions—the first of his administration’s—with nearly one half dozen world leaders and heads of state.
And as I noted in my column this week, even when he does make an appearance, even when armed with note cards, he has the worst case of forgot-what-I’m-doings we’ve ever seen in a President.
It’s been enough to make prominent journalists to ask prominent elected officials “what’s going on?”
Add to all of this the continued presence of the national guard in DC—when no threats are present, the barbed and razor wired fencing around all of Capitol Hill, the massive continuation of executive orders (this week aimed at loosening rules federally to create greater fraud in the future) and there does seem like a strident agenda is being enacted. (Even if the man supposedly enacting it seems more excited about the lime jello being served at lunch than the missile strikes “he has” launched in the Middle East.
Though the networks were woefully slow to report on it, President Biden dropped bombs on Iranian funded terror groups in Syria this week.
Retired four star General Jack Keane said on my show today that it was a solidly justified response to bad behavior by the Iranians in recent weeks. This admission by a general whose opinion I hold in high regard is comforting given the general mistrust half their nation has in the current administration. A mistrust exacerbated by the go-it-alone approach this administration has embodied since coming into office.
According to reports the raid was carried out in response to a series of hostile incidents by Iranian backed Shias in Iraq. One of these instances injured innocents and took the life of one American serviceman.
The Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin felt confident about the rational, execution and effectiveness for the mission.
It also seems to send a clear message that when bad actors take the lives of Americans there will be payback. And in this part of the world it is mission critical to send that message clearly in a post Trump administration especially.
Trump supporters attempted to draw contrast with Biden over the use of such strikes. But such comparisons are not remembering history properly. President Trump did order targets in Syria hit—the first time with President Xi from China at his dinner table—early in his presidency.
These strikes seemed targeted, and the evidence of civilian collateral damage has been non-existent.
In short I’m fine with the action taken. I’m sort of the opinion that we can’t show our strength to especially Iran “too much.”
But there is a significant point in this escapade that annoys me. When I brought it up to General Keane he indicated I had touched a “raw nerve.”
And I can understand why…
It was originally the Obama/Biden administration that delivered billions of American tax-payer monies to Iran in the first place. Iran then used those cash supplies to immediately fund terror operations and networks globally. President Trump suspended the said Iran deal when he came to office.
So we likely funded the bad actors who spent the last week attacking our green zone in Iraq. We then had to go fly F-15s to bomb said bad guys out of operations.
And here’s the most unnerving thing about it: President Joe Biden is making the fastest beeline possible to advance the same deal that put us in this situation to begin with!
A brand new 36 page report. Six damning areas to examine. More than enough evidence to swing the election. All six of the battleground states exhibited these irregularities/illegalities. Multiple strategies (possibly a dozen) at play. Error “acceptable” rates 1000’s of times higher than FEC allows. Glitches, surges, and no poll monitors when 100’s of 1000’s of votes added in the dead of night–coordinated across all swing states.
Some of you may not realize it but the content never stops being made over here in BingeThinker land. All week long we are doing hours and hours of radio (17-19 hours per week most weeks.) And then there’s the punditry for FoxNews, Eric Metaxas, NewsMax etc.
Since this year’s #MAPs started coming out I’ve also had a ton of even foreign media interest. Thanks to Rush Limbaugh, a bunch of patriots on social media, and listeners/viewers — it’s been non-stop.
But in case you missed some of the highlights from the most recent days here’s some convenient connections to catch up:
THE COLUMN: “When Corruption Becomes Commonplace”
We just take a look at the stark reality that everything the left touches has not only become corrupted but corrupts so badly that it expects everyone else to do the same. It doesn’t HAVE to be this way, and leaders from past even Democrat generations felt that way.
RADIO NIGHT LIVE: Guest starring this week: “The Map,” Rudy Giuliani, Kristin B. Tate, Erin Perrine, and #AngryOldJoe. Revisit on-demand.
WHERE IN THE WORLD: My friend Eric Metaxas has had me on a TON in the past month, mostly critiquing the election and where we are at. If you missed it he had me on last Friday for like half the show. (Honored and Humbled!) Watch it here.
LOOKING AHEAD: This week should be absolutely amazing. Just three of the reasons why…
1. Joe Biden called a “lid” on the week – on Sunday. Meaning he intends to not campaign, make public appearances, do any interviews. In fact he’s called the lid THROUGH ELECTION DAY! I’m not sure what to make of it except to believe that he thinks he’s so far out in front that there’s no way he could lose. (Or as normal people call it — #HillarySyndrome.) OR he believes he’s slipped, the difficult questions from the press will be too numerous, and he’s just not egging for the fight anymore. My bet is on the latter.
2. Today is the day Judge Amy Coney Barrett, becomes Associate Justice Amy Coney Barrett. Now some may wonder why this is such a big deal. But to be candid — I never believed we would arrive at a 6-3 majority (for easy cases) nor a 5-4 majority as a backstop. But we HAVE. The President faithfully executed his duties as President. And it is amazing to see what happens when someone keeps his word. It is a DAY to be celebrated! #HappyBdayHillary
3. My newest map (second to the end) will drop on Wednesday at 3pm ET. Salivate away!

There was something truly stomach churning about watching our finest having to grovel to Iranian state television thugs:

I don’t know about you. But I am thoroughly unsatisfied with every piece of the explanation I have heard over the matter of 10 of our Navy being held as captives in Iran for even a single night. Within minutes of learning of the issue, why didn’t our President and all proper lines of command take all necessary action to immediately demand their release?
Will we ever know?
We were first told they had mechanical failure. What were the parts that failed? How did the repairs take place? Can anyone verify any of it?
We were told that they were treated well. Why were their hands commanded above their heads as though they were criminals? Why were they forcibly taken from their boats?
We were told that they were going to be on their way shortly… at 5pm on TUESDAY. Why was it well in to Wednesday before they appeared to be?
Why didn’t the President address the matter in the State Of The Union–knowing most Americans were concerned for the safety and welfare of our sailors? Was it because he was as feckless on the matter as he is on the issue of our private citizens that Iran is also illegally holding?
Why did Vice President Biden insist that no apology was given, when clearly our boys were coerced into offering one?
Why did John Kerry even get to open his mouth?
See why I’m dissatisfied?
This incident stunk from the first moment it was reported on Tuesday. Even after their supposed release, it still stinks. I believe there is something else far more nefarious that either happened or was on the brink of happening, that we will only find out about someday in the distant future.
Sadly I also doubt our top officials have the stomach to do anything more to reveal any more details.
Iran is not to be trusted–haven’t been since they busted up their free society in exchange for some whack-jobs in bed-sheets. Their people desire to be free, and they are suffering too.
It is those who choke hold the power into their tiny few hands that believe they are preparing for the end-of-days showdowns with the biggest Satans on the planet that we must watch.
But it would be nice–so, very, nice–if we had an administration who had the backs of our servicemen and women as much as they have ours.
It’s my feeling that we failed them last night.
I HOPE… I’m wrong!
