Two Honest Aussies, and Now a Brit, Report What Our Own Media Will Not

Following President Joe Biden’s first primetime address to Americans on Thursday night, the conservative media pounced.

First, bloggers directed their criticism to the substance of the speech. Biden had cast blame on former President Donald Trump for his handling of the pandemic. He told Americans, “A year ago we were hit with a virus that was met with silence and spread unchecked. Denials for days, weeks, then months that led to more deaths, more infections, more stress, and more loneliness.”

Next, Biden claimed credit for the massive rollout of vaccinations, the plans for which had been put in place by the Trump Administration.

He even had the gall to tell us that if we behave, we might be allowed to get together with friends and family on the Fourth of July. Will anyone tell him we’ve been doing this for months?

Beyond the carefully prepared words he read from the teleprompter, conservative bloggers described the deadness in Biden’s eyes, the slowness of his gait and how quickly he appeared to tire by the end of the 20-minute talk.

The liberal media, on the other hand, praised the President:

The most cringeworthy response of all came from CNN’s S.E. Cupp:

Anyway, over the last week, I’ve posted two compelling monologues delivered separately by Sky News Australia anchors Alan Jones and Cory Bernardi. Both men delivered brutal, but accurate, assessments of Biden’s deteriorating cognitive abilities as well as his administration’s missteps. They each marveled at the U.S. media’s refusal to report on either issue.

This morning, Powerline’s Scott Johnson discovered another report, this one from the U.K.

In a post cleverly entitled, “But He Hasn’t Got Anything On,” Johnson writes that “the mainstream media are playing the part of the courtiers and townsfolk in ‘The emperor’s new clothes.’ Along comes historian and Spectator deputy editor Dominic Green to play the part of the little child in the Telegraph column “President Biden is crumbling before our eyes.”

Green’s article is hidden behind a paywall. I’ve printed a portion of it below:

Joe Biden’s decline has become so painful to see and so embarrassing to watch that it feels cruel to mention it. But it’s even more cruel that Biden’s team act as if it’s not happening, and most of America’s media look the other way.

On Thursday night, Biden marked the first anniversary of the Covid-19 shutdowns and his fiftieth day in the White House by giving the first televised address of his presidency. He hadn’t been seen in public for three days.

From the moment he wheezed up to the lectern and peered into the camera, you could tell Biden was on top form: croaky sentiment, sporadic belligerence, and only the occasional moment when he looked oddly distant and perplexed.

He got through twenty minutes, then tottered off without taking any questions. This is how low the bar now is for Biden. And we can see how hard Biden has to fight, and what a long run-up he requires, if he is to clear it.

We can see it in his struggle to follow the simple lines on his autocue, and in his bungling of the simplest ad-libs. We see it in the clips of his increasingly desperate handlers trying to block him from questions at his rare and carefully managed appearances before the cameras. Most of all, we see it in his eyes.

“What am I doing here?” Biden asked after fumbling his autocue lines in an address in Texas in late February. He reached for the cue cards that are now his constant companion. “I’m gonna lose track here.”

Biden’s supporters call him “gaffe-prone[.]” It’s true: he’s always thought with his mouth open. It’s also true that he bravely overcame a speech impediment in childhood, and that anxiety and age can cause a stutter to recur. But these aren’t gaffes or stutters.

Compare how he moves and sounds now to how he was a year ago, let alone five years ago. Biden looks and sounds frail. He seems visibly distressed at his inability to carry out the simplest requirements of office – and at a time when the requirements are simpler than usual.

Johnson notes that this article went viral in the U.K. on Friday.

If only we had an honest press. Instead, the U.S. media has aided and abetted a “Weekend at Bernie’s” presidency. And rather than being a comedy, it’s a national disgrace.

In Texas to Assess Storm Damage, Biden Struggles To Speak, Loses Train of Thought

President Joe Biden can no longer make it through a public appearance without stumbling over words or losing his train of thought. On Friday, he and First Lady Jill Biden visited Texas to support residents of the Lone Star State TWELVE days after a freak storm crippled the power grid leaving millions without heat and even clean water.

Newsmax anchor Grant Stinchfield highlights two of Biden’s worst moments in his address to Texans.

At 0:30 in the video below, the President struggles as he introduces several state politicians: “Lizzie Panilli, uh, excuse me, Pannill, and uh, what am I doing here? I’m going to lose track here.”

He struggles again with his speech later on. “And, uh… Mayor Turner… My family spent a lot of time here in Houston by the way. And, uh, hey John Eddy, how are you buddy I didn’t see you there?… I could be known for as president. I would be the end, the president who end during his era ended cancer as we know it (cough).”

Conservative podcast host and Fox News contributor Dan Bongino appeared on “Hannity” last week. The two had been discussing the letter that nearly three dozen House Democrats had sent to Biden last Monday in which they urged him to “relinquish his sole authority to order the launch of nuclear weapons.”

The letter read: “Vesting one person with this authority entails real risks. Past presidents have threatened to attack other countries with nuclear weapons or exhibited behavior that causes other officials to express concerns about the president’s judgement [sic].”

This led to a discussion of why they believed this was necessary. Which led to – you guessed it – a discussion of Biden’s cognitive decline, something the mainstream media has been working hard to conceal.

In the video below, Bongino tells Hannity, “It was something I was getting from my sources. Sean, it gives me absolutely no joy in saying this. And I mean that. He is in real significant trouble, Joe Biden. And listen to me. Everyone around him. Everyone knows it. Everyone knows it. This is the scandal that they’re not telling you – how bad his condition really is. … I’m telling you from what I’m hearing from people in my network, everyone knows how bad it is. Everyone. It’s not a mystery, it is the worst kept secret in the White House.”

Hannity replies, “That would mean a cover-up… ”

Yes, that would mean a media cover-up.

Although right-wing media has been writing about Biden’s obvious dementia since he launched his presidential campaign in April 2019, no mainstream media outlet in the U.S. will go near this story. Last week, I posted here about Sky News Australia anchor Cory Bernardi’s brutally honest report on Biden’s condition.

I suppose the U.S. media will start reporting on it when they’re ready to push BIden aside to make room for Kamala.

Biden Tells a Whopper at CNN Townhall: ‘We didn’t have [the coronavirus vaccine] when we came into office’

It’s at moments like this that we really regret former President Donald Trump’s permanent ban from Twitter.

Discussing the COVID-19 vaccine at CNN’s Townhall on Tuesday night in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, President Joe Biden said, “The biggest thing is when you and I talked last, we talked about it’s one thing to have the vaccine – which we didn’t have when we came into office – but a vaccinator. How do you get the vaccine into someone’s arm?”

“President-elect Joe Biden received his first dose of the Pfizer and BioNTech coronavirus vaccine on live television Monday afternoon and reassured Americans of the vaccine’s safety,” reported CNN on December 21.

And he received the second dose on January 11.

Apologists are saying the President misspoke. They point out he had previously said that “only” 50 million doses had been available when he took office.

But why didn’t CNN’s Anderson Cooper correct him? Had Trump “misspoken” like this, no journalist would have remained silent.

What the President says matters.

There will be viewers of Tuesday night’s Townhall who will insist to their friends today that the vaccine wasn’t available until after Biden took office. They will say they heard the President say so on CNN.

Additionally, Biden’s remark that there were “only” 50 million doses of the vaccine available when he took office is an attempt to downplay what truly was an amazing accomplishment.

Trump’s Operation Warp Speed was responsible for providing the world with two coronavirus vaccines in record time. It may have happened even sooner, but the pharmaceutical companies waited to announce the positive results of their clinical trials until after Election Day.

I’d bet my life that the Biden Administration could not have achieved this.

As time goes on, Democrats may very well try to “revise” the history of the vaccine to minimize or to even eliminate Trump’s instrumental role in its creation.

It’s kind of hard to believe that 80 million Americans voted for this man, isn’t it?
