'Oh, look over there' says Don. Why won't you tell us why you think sexual harrasment of women you don't agree with, is something to joke about?
Billy, you're just shouting at the wind right now matey, you know that don't you.

In other Joe Biden news he's actually imposed sanctions on companies that he's deemed are cooperating with the CCP persecution of the Uyghurs in Xinjiang

'Look over there' tactics don't cut the mustard.

You've already shown us what you are made of with your earlier comments and displays. Give up whilst you can attempt to maintain a fig leaf of dignity...but I think we all realise we're well past that.

Mike.
Here's our original happy little sodomite to show off his fake outrage - yet again.

Better than Parwil or Marmite, hey Mike.

There there...I realise you've scraped a hole in the bottom of the barrel with nowhere else to go, perhaps I should ease up on you.

Yes Don, you're correct, I used a word which is more offensive than I thought. I publicly apologised. I will do it again.

I am sincerely sorry for using an offensive word. It was done through ignorance and not malice. I promise never to use the word again and offer my sincere apologies for anybody who was offended.

Your turn Don. You clearly stated that you find a picture of Joe Biden, an old man, groping Greta Thurnberg, a young woman, to be funny.

Will you apologise?

Here's the really weird thing, Billy. I thought your calling Mike a sodomite was in incredibly bad taste - not to mention the fact that it made you sound like you were a million years old.

And yet here you are saying the following

Here's our original happy little sodomite to show off his fake outrage

Yes, everything is in bad taste, except it seems when the mighty Don says it according to you.

Just give your head a little wobble will you.

Mike is a big boy, Mannie - I've heard rumours of his being able to tie his own shoelaces and take himself to the toilet.

He gives every bit as good as he gets.

How would you 'ease up' on me, Mike? By finally inviting me to three o'clock scones and tea?

Please, your sad old 'infinitely offended' act is hardly even notable on my person. Do continue thrashing me with that wet lettuce leaf you call a wit, it amuses us here at the palace no end.
Will you apologise?

So you follow me around for a week demanding an apology for something that YOU were offended by - and then you cry foul when I refuse to play your silly little game?

Stop playing the victim, Billy - you should know me well enough by now to know that I have no respect whatsoever for people who do that.

I'm not being victimised by Billy because I refuse to succumb to being brow-beaten by that sooky behaviour. Billy is entitled to whinge about being offended by that Greta Thunberg meme - and I'm entitled to tell him he's being sad and pathetic. End-of-story.

So Joe Biden ISN'T a 'pervy creep' despite the fact that he's the one that does this sort of thing to women?

Joe Biden's 'Build Back Better' bill is in serious trouble after a key Democrat Senator rejected the bill - CNN;

President Joe Biden and Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., spoke Sunday night after Manchin dealt a devastating blow to the Build Back Better Act, two sources familiar with the call said Monday.

The sources said that the call was cordial and that the two kept the door open to further negotiations after Manchin announced earlier in the day that he couldn't support the roughly $2 trillion legislation passed by the House. Biden and Manchin ended their call with an understanding that they would speak again, the sources said...

...Facing unanimous GOP opposition, the bill has no chance of reaching Biden's desk without Manchin in a Senate split 50-50 between the two parties. Manchin's announcement Sunday on Fox News, which was followed by a swift rebuke from the White House, raised questions about whether he would return to the negotiating table.

Manchin isn't usually one to hold grudges, said a friend and confidant who indicated that the fate of the Build Back Better Act won't hinge on the events of the past two days.

"The guy likes to get to yes," said the source, who requested anonymity to candidly explain Manchin's mindset. "I don't think it's dead until it's buried. And it's not buried."

Probably not a bad thing that the bill is delayed - inflation is running away in the United States and more borrowed money is just adding petrol to the fire.

There's a Premier in NSW keeping that seat warm until the next election that would like to make your acquaintance.

Wrong. Victoria and the Northern Territory have the very worst debt problems in our nation right now. The Financial Review recently reported that Victoria's debt is now projected to hit $190,000,000,000 by 2025;

On the back of pandemic-related spending, Victoria’s budget has blown out by $7.9 billion, with the state predicting an operating deficit of $19.5 billion for the current financial year... Analysis by ANZ economist Catherine Birch finds the figure most watched by ratings agencies – whole-of-government debt – is expected to soar to $190.9 billion by 2025, which would represent 32.8 per cent of state gross product.

It is a long way from pre-pandemic levels when Victorian Treasurer Tim Pallas controversially announced just 48 hours before the 2018 election that the state’s long-standing debt ceiling would be doubled from 6 per cent to 12 per cent and debt was forecast to hit $36 billion.

NSW is yet to update its budget to show the impact of the delta virus lockdown but is on track for a peak of $136 billion in whole-of-government debt, or 17.9 per cent of state gross product, which is less than two-thirds of Victoria’s updated net debt forecasts.

That would have to be some kind of record wouldn't it? $150 billion increase in debt in just seven years - in just one state - and NSW by contrast is left in the dust despite the fact that has more people and a much bigger land-mass. That's going to be about $32,000 of Victorian government debt per Victorian - impressive hey Mike!

But even Victoria's debt is dwarfed by the Northern Territory government which presently has $5 billion in debt for a state with a population of the City of Greater Geelong - that equates currently to about $20,000 in debt per Territorian - but that's set to explode to about $120,000 of Territory government debt per resident by 2030.

Even more alarming when you realise that the only reason these states have even been able to borrow money is because Fyrdenberg quietly used Treasury to buy state debt at the peak of the pandemic last year - but now that that's all over they might not be able to find credit so easily.

Excuse me for asking but watching the news last night and in relation to Biden, has the president  had a stroke?  

He looks like slurring words and his memory does not look right when he cannot remember names of those working closely with him

Pres. Biden has been slurring his words for decades. This is bacause he had a major stuttering problem as a child. This fact is well known.

Even the traditional left-leaning media has noticed Joe's recent inconsistencies and loopy non sequiturs: Howie Carr: Joe Biden is off his rocker … or should be in one - Boston Herald:

It’s Weekend at Biden’s, and Dementia Joe is already gearing up for the 2022 mid-term elections.

“I want to tell my Republican friends, Get ready, Bal!”

Does anyone know who this “Bal” person is? But the president continued calling Bal out:

“You’re gonna in for a problem!”

Remember that, Bal. Next year, you’re gonna in for a problem!

These are the words of Dementia Joe Biden, and all dialogue is guaranteed verbatim.

All quotes come from right here in the United States of America, or as Joe called it at one whistle stop this week, “the United Steak of Amerifa for God’s sake.”

Biden was one busy geezer this past week. He did a Zoom interview with a reputed comedian he called “Jim” Kimmel. He lauded the “Vicepresidentment” and her husband, whom he described both as the “First Gentleman” and as the “Second Gentleman.”

He talked a lot about his wife Jill — excuse me, “Dr.” Jill. Biden called her “an amazing first later lady uh I I don’t know how she does it.” He praised her as “scintillating,” which he pronounced as “sense-alating.”

“My wife Jill,” he said elsewhere, “is a first is a full-time teacher.”

He also found time to denounce autocracies, which he called “autocra-skies,” without elaborating whether they were Alpine or cross-country autocra-skies.

Biden was on the road this week, to Kansas City first and then to Kentucky, one of the states devastated by the tornadoes, or as he called the storm last weekend, a “hurricane.”

But help, he announced, is on the way to what he described as “the infected area.”

“A hundred and 44 thousand liters of drinking water, 24,000 meals uh you know uh uh I I just 74,000 and look thousands of cots and blankets look there are seven, seven shelters open in Kentucky which are now taking care of 300 occupants but a lot more is gonna open.”...

...Here are a few more of Dementia Joe’s Greatest Hits this week:

“They’re paying at higher tax rate than someone making a trillion dollars, I mean a billion dollars, for real.”

“And you qualified for federal aid you got ‘em just enough much of dam — of money money to get exactly what it looked like before.”

“You soul what you can soul, you don’t have the money to get it done, well my pan my plan addresses that.”

“I, I took 50 billion barrels, million barrels out outta the they call it the Oil Petroleum Reserve.”

“Nobel 17 Nobel winners of the ec-ec-ec-economics have written a letter.”

Clearly he's in cognitive decline - no wonder Putin was laughing at the poor hapless man after he met him. He's not up to the job - which is probably part of the reason why the Democrat machine stuck him there.

Manchin is a despicable self service @rsehole. He waived through the $800 Billion a year defence budget, in peacetime. Did not worry about inflation then.

Self serving piece of crap. Corporate Democrats and Republican are two cheeks of the same backside.

Sounds like a bit of fiscal responsibility to me. Some elements of the Democratic Party think you get money because you 'deserve' it according to their twisted world view and that's all there is to it. Out your hand in the bag, pull out the money.

Rubbish Billy. A lot of them are working poor who work a lot harder than you or I. Now you are anti-working class.

Did I not say that Manchin waived through $800 Billion for defence? Whilst ending schemes that reduced Child Poverty in the US by 30%. But its alright to put through $2 Trillion in tax cuts to the wealthy and corporates during the one who must not be named presidency.

Manchin is a self serving creep.

Biden administration hoping to stimulate away any recession that might be on the cards by deferring public student loan payments further - NBC News;

The Biden administration announced Wednesday that the moratorium on federal student loan payments would be extended through May 1 as the highly transmissible omicron variant of the coronavirus poses a new threat to the economy.

In a statement, President Joe Biden said "millions of student loan borrowers are still coping with the impacts of the pandemic and need some more time before resuming payments."

The White House maintained for months that Biden would not extend the pause beyond the Jan. 31 deadline, warning borrowers that they should be prepared to resume payments in February even as Covid case numbers increased and as inflation concerns gripped the country. The administration's language began to soften in recent days as the omicron variant spread rapidly, with White House press secretary Jen Psaki telling reporters Tuesday that Biden had "not made a decision yet" about whether to issue another extension.

Some Democrats have also argued that it would be a poor political decision for Biden to restart student loan payments — which have been paused for nearly two years — ahead of a difficult midterm elections year.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., tweeted last week that it was "delusional" to believe Democrats could get re-elected without acting on student debt relief, among other priorities.

The moratorium began in March 2020, when former President Donald Trump signed into law the CARES Act, which paused payments through September 2020 and eliminated interest rates for the roughly 42 million borrowers.

Not re-starting student loan payments will allow an extra $16.8 billion to remain in the US economy - yet another form of stimulus.

The Biden administration is getting desperate and openly considers reintroducing something not seen in fifty years: Price controls. From America's ABC;

On Monday, the Biden administration announced it is taking steps aimed at bringing down the cost of meat by bolstering competition among processors.

It’s one way the White House says it's trying to address the high prices Americans are paying for just about everything but one economist says the federal government needs to take a more drastic measure.

In an op-ed for The Guardian, political economist Isabella Weber makes the case, comparing today’s inflation to inflation after World War II.

Weber says President Joe Biden and Congress should use arguably one of the boldest tools available to them through the Defense Production Act: strategic price controls.

Price controls would buy time to deal with bottlenecks that will continue as long as the pandemic prevails,” Weber wrote.
It’s been done before — getting the country through both world wars and in the summer of 1971.

Instead of the strategic price controls that Weber argues for, former President Richard Nixon announced a blanket freeze. But Nixon’s move is widely viewed by historians as politically motivated and responsible for the 1973 recession.

Biden has already called for price controls on pharmaceuticals and now they're considering them for a range of goods including fuel and food. The events we're seeing right now are an almost identical replay of the circumstances that led to the economic problems of the mid-to-late 1970's.

Excellent and inspirational speech by Pres. Biden calling out loser Trumps insistence, 12 months on that the election was 'stolen'.

Predictably the right wing media called the speech divisive. As they have been proven to be complicit in the January 6 insurrection it might have served them better to have said nothing at all.

I must have watched a different speech. What I saw was hyperbole, hypocrisy, and lies.  Raising the temperature for political gain. Standard stuff for both sides of US politics.

Even the optics were all wrong. The President stood by patiently while the VP spoke, the VP walked out like she had better things to do than hear what he had to say.
