U.S. President Joe Biden left Jeddah, Saudi Arabia aboard Air Force 1 on Saturday, ending his first Middle East visit since taking office after four days in the region without major announcements.
The lukewarm reception and lack of enthusiasm were evident when the governor of the Mecca Region, Khalid Al-Faisal, was sent to the airport to receive Biden upon his arrival in the city of Jeddah, in striking contrast to the extravagant reception that was given to then-President Donald Trump when he visited Riyadh in 2017.
The way Biden greeted Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, with a fist bump rather than a handshake, and the serious expressions they maintained as they barely moved their lips, left no doubt about how they felt toward each other. Source: Ynet News
President Joe Biden delivered a 20-minute gun speech at the White House on Monday in which he called on Congress to pass “safe storage” gun laws holding gun owners personally liable for locking up their guns, in addition to bans on “assault weapons” and “high capacity” magazines.
While speaking to commemorate the passage of the “Bipartisan Safer Communities Act” he signed into law last month, Biden said, “We should have safe storage laws requiring personal liability for not locking up your gun.”
“If you own a weapon, you have the responsibility to secure it and keep it under lock and key,” Biden said. “Responsible gun owners agree: No one else should have access to it, so lock it up.” Source: American Military News
“My plan is to address inflation. That starts with a simple proposition: respect the Fed, respect the Fed’s independence, which I have done and will continue to do,” Biden said.
Additionally, Biden placed the blame for Americans’ suffering squarely on the shoulders of Russian president Vladimir Putin and his “Putin Price Hike.”
Sen Bill Hagerty (R-TN) addressed the Biden narrative, noting that “the problem [of inflation] hasn’t sprung out of nowhere,” before asking Powell the following question:
“Would you say that the war in Ukraine is the primary driver of inflation in America?”
“No. Inflation was high, certainly before the war in Ukraine broke out.”
“And so — I mean that sincerely. I often get asked — look, the Republicans don’t play it square, why do you play it square? Well, guess what, if we do the same thing they do, our democracy will literally be in jeopardy. Not a joke,” President Joe Biden said.
Kimmel asked Biden, “how do you ever make any progress if they’re not following the rules?”
“You’ve got to send them to jail,” the “no-joke” Biden said.
“I don’t think the country will stand for it,” Biden said of a possible Roe defeat in the Supreme Court on Kimmel. “If in fact the decision comes down the way it does, and these states impose the limitations they’re talking about, it’s going to cause a mini-revolution and they’re going to vote these folks out of office.”
President Joe Biden commenting on 9mm ammunition stated that “the Second Amendment was never absolute.”
George Soros stated last week at the World Economic Forum, “We have a foundation in Ukraine and it happens to be one of our best foundations… I also want to mention that there’s one person who was very deeply involved in Ukraine and that’s Biden. In fact, I got to know him with regard to Ukraine. He had a lot more patience than I had.”
