What Happened to Joe Biden’s State of the Union Address?

Have you been wondering what happened to Joe Biden’s State of the Union address?

Generally, the State of the Union address is delivered in late January to early February.

So, again, we go back to that question: where’s Biden’s speech?

What’s sort of interesting about this question is that Joe Biden himself apparently indicated to reporters that it would be in February, that he wanted to talk about COVID relief, according to Axios.

Some media seem to have had it tentatively scheduled for Feb. 23, as you can see from these screenshots.

Check the dates:

 

 

BLM even had an event scheduled, based on that tentative scheduling.

 

One would think the AP and PBS had some reason to pick that date and not just pull it out of the air.

But when questioned, Jen Psaki said there were no plans for Biden to address the joint session this month and that despite what Biden had said and the tentative scheduling some media had, she claimed it “was never planned to be in February.”

Fox News’ Chad Pergram reported that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) says there won’t be an address until the COVID deal is done. In other words, Biden is giving up the opportunity to talk about the virus and the bill until after it’s passed? Alrighty, now.

Politico is now suggesting that it might be March, which as they observed would be the latest in “decades.”

As we previously reported, Biden hasn’t even had a solo press conference with the media yet. By this time, both Barack Obama and Donald Trump had done solo pressers. When Jen Psaki was asked about that earlier this week, she refused to give the media a date as to when he would be doing one, but said he would do it at some point in the future. Not exactly what you would call leadership in a time of pandemic.

Boilerplate Blah Blah Blather, not worth the time to copypasta.
Read it if you want, but that one line under the link pretty much says it all.
More meetings than action? Acknowledgment that his campaign promises to use Executive Orders for gun control was fraudulent propaganda. There is very little he can do as President to exert control on the domestic side of the equation and they all know it.


Biden considers regulating ‘ghost guns,’ other executive actions to curb gun violence
The president’s movement on guns has, so far, been more meetings than action.

Montana Governor Greg Gianforte Signs Permitless Carry Legislation Into Law

HELENA — Gov. Greg Gianforte signed a major ‘constitutional carry’ bill Thursday that will let Montanans carry concealed firearms in public settings including banks and bars without a permit, in addition to limiting university system officials’ ability to restrict firearm possession on college campuses.

The measure, House Bill 102, has been described by proponents as a way to enhance Montanans’ Second Amendment rights and promote public safety by making it easier for law-abiding citizens to defend themselves from criminals. Opponents have argued that making it easier for Montanans to keep guns close at hand won’t necessarily promote public safety.

“Our Second Amendment is very clear: The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed,” Gianforte said at a bill signing ceremony Thursday afternoon. “Every law-abiding Montanan should be able to defend themselves and their loved ones.”

The measure allows concealed firearm possession without a permit by default in most places in the state, with exceptions including secure law enforcement facilities, federal buildings, courtrooms, and K-12 schools. Property owners and tenants would have the ability to expressly prohibit firearm possession in private homes and businesses.

Additionally, the measure forbids the state university system from restricting firearm possession on campuses beyond requiring gun owners to have safety training akin to a hunter’s education course and safety measures such as requiring that firearms be transported in cases and stored with gun locks. The university system will also be allowed to forbid gun possession by students who have been formally disciplined for substance abuse or “interpersonal violence,” and prohibit possession by attendees at football games and other events that are supervised by armed security guards.

The university system provisions of the new law take effect June 1. Its other provisions are effective immediately.

Ohio Knife Law Reform Bill Signed!

Knife Rights’ Ohio Knife Law Reform Bill, SB 140, was signed today by Governor Mike DeWine. We sincerely thank Gov. DeWine for signing this important bill. Thanks and all of you who used Knife Rights Legislative Action Center for the hundreds of emails and calls to the governor.

NOTE: The new law does not take effect until April 10, 2021, 90 days after signing. The existing law is still in effect until then.

NOTE: We have not yet passed Knife Rights signature knife law preemption in Ohio, so individual cities and towns may still have knife ordinances more restrictive than state law. Knife Rights’ LegalBlade Knife Law App  will be updated when the new law goes into effect. LegalBlade App includes laws in a number of Ohio cities and provides links to find municipal codes of many Ohio cities and towns.

SB 140 reforms Ohio knife law by making two separate substantive changes:

1. The ban on manufacture and sale of “switchblade,” “spring blade,” and “gravity” knives is repealed;

2. It clears up the vague and confusing Ohio law regarding carrying of ANY knife by defining a knife, razor, or cutting instrument as a “deadly weapon” or “weapon” ONLY if it is used as a weapon. This would allow carrying any knife concealed under state law.

This is the 13th ‘flip’ of a seat in congress held by a demoncrap.


Republican David Valadao unseats California Democrat Rep. T.J. Cox

Republican David Valadao has been declared the winner over Democrat Rep. T.J. Cox in California’s 21st Congressional District.

The Valadao win marks yet another blow to Democrats, who entered the election expecting to expand their majority, only to watch the GOP flip a number of House seats.

Mr. Valadao served in Congress from 2013 to 2019.

It’s possible that 2020’s election fraud is way bigger than we thought

Two massive Twitter threads contend that serious computer fraud two years ago in Texas, which turned strong red districts blue, was essentially a trial run for what’s been playing out across America in this election.  This post summarizes the core claims in those threads, along with interlineations of information I found.

One Twitter thread comes from Roscoe B. Davis, the other from Bad Kitty.

Scytl is a Barcelona-based company that provides electronic voting systems worldwide, many of which have proven vulnerable to electronic manipulation.  Scytl has (or had) Soros and Democrat party connections.  Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen’s Vulcan Capital has invested $40 million in Scytl.

In 2012, Scytl acquired all the assets of SOE Software, which was then America’s largest voting machine and software vendor.  Scytl also acquired the trade name “Clarity Elections” and rebranded its American operations as “Clarity,” with a data process domain at clarityelections.com.

Everything on the Clarity site is unsecured on Amazon Web Services.  By 2018, Scytl, using the Clarity network, supported elections in more than 12 states and 900+ jurisdictions, covering 70 million voters. Continue reading “”

Poor widdle babay not getting her way.


AOC said she might quit politics, as some centrist Democrats blame progressives for House losses

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez told the New York Times in an interview that she might quit politics, depending on the hostility of her own party towards progressive causes.

“I don’t even know if I want to be in politics,” she told The Times. “You know, for real, in the first six months of my term, I didn’t even know if I was going to run for re-election this year.”

The Bronx native said the Democratic party has been hostile to progressive causes, like Medicare for All and the Movement for Black Lives.

“Externally, there’s been a ton of support,” she said, according to The Times. “But internally, it’s been extremely hostile to anything that even smells progressive.”

The interview happened Saturday, shortly after major news networks called the election for President-elect Joe Biden. While Biden won the presidency, Democrats down-ticket didn’t fare quite as well, with some centrist party leaders blaming progressive messaging for the loss of House seats.

Ocasio-Cortez, who handily beat extremely well-funded opponents, pushed back on that accusation, blaming the losses on deficient digital campaigns and the avoidance of progressive issues. In a tweet, she said some campaigns spent $0 on digital ads the week before the election……..

Rural California is divided, armed for revolt. What’s the matter in the State of Jefferson?

Carlos Zapata has a message for any government official who shows up at his Tehama County restaurant and tries to enforce California’s pandemic shutdown orders.

“I’ve made it very clear that if they come to shut us down, I’m going to call 100,000 people that’ll be there with guns, and what happens happens, you know?” Zapata said Tuesday. “I’m hoping that they’re not stupid enough to want that kind of a fight over a restaurant being open, but if they want it, we’ll definitely give it to them.”

It’s not the first time the Red Bluff restaurant owner and U.S. Marine combat veteran has made those kinds of threats. A few weeks ago, he told the Shasta County Board of Supervisors to expect trouble if they enforce Gov. Gavin Newsom’s COVID-19 restrictions on local businesses.

“Right now, we’re being peaceful,” he said in a short speech that has since made Zapata a celebrity among far-right groups. “But it’s not going to be peaceful much longer.”

Just about anywhere else in California, that sort of talk would have been widely condemned. But here, in what’s arguably the capital of the State of Jefferson — a decades-old movement to break off conservative northern counties from Democrat-controlled California — many have shrugged Zapata off as commonplace.

Yep. NFA’34 & GCA ’68 work soooo well


Feds indict Youngstown man for having converted machine gun

It is Black’s third charge of being a felon in possession of a firearm since 2016 and second within a year

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) — A federal grand jury has indicted a Cambridge Avenue man for having a converted machine gun.

Marlin Black, 27, faces charges of possession of a machine gun and possession of an unregistered firearm.

The indictment was issued Friday but unsealed Monday in the U.S. Northern District Court Of Ohio.

The indictment said Black had a 9mm Glock 17 semiautomatic pistol in his home July 31 that was found after police responded to a call for a fight with weapons.

His girlfriend and mother of his three children told police she was arguing with Black over carrying his fourth child when she drove to the house.

She said she tried to talk to Black through the home’s surveillance system but when she got no answer, she went to drive away and heard shots.

When police got there, Black tried to run out the back door but went back inside, reports say. He later surrendered to police and told them they could check for a gun.

Officers went inside and found a revolver, drugs and cash. They waited for a search warrant before looking further, at which point they found three rifles, a revolver reported stolen out of Jefferson Township, more drugs and $80,845 in several vacuum-sealed bags throughout the house.

The Glock 17 is a handgun but the indictment said Black had a device attached to the gun that allowed it to fire like a machine gun. It is not uncommon for handguns to have high capacity magazines attached that allow them to fire as many rounds as a semiautomatic rifle. Continue reading “”

Will President Trump Let ATF Continue to Rule by Unchecked Diktat with Honey Badger ‘Reclassification’?

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (‘ATF’) recently informed firearm manufacturer Q, LLC that, in ATF’s view, Q’s ‘Honey Badger’ pistol with stabilizing brace is actually a short-barreled rifle and therefore subject to the National Firearms Act (‘NFA’), the National Rifle Association Institute for Legislative Action noted in an Oct. 6 alert asking members to take action by contacting the Department of Justice. “Since 2012, ATF has repeatedly found that firearms with pistol stabilizing braces, like the one equipped on Q’s Honey Badger pistol, are not ‘designed, made, and intended to be fired from the shoulder,’ and are therefore not subject to regulation under the NFA. Now, with no notice or opportunity for public input, ATF appears to be reversing course.”

NRA directed members to a notice from Q, LLC that explained the “cease and desist” letter ATF had sent the company in August, with instructions emphasized in bold-case ordering the company to:

Cease and desist all manufacture and transfer of the “Honey Badger Pistol” firearm unless you properly register each firearm manufactured on an ATF Form 2 as required by the NFA, and file the appropriate ATF Form prior to the transfer.
Contact ATF to develop a plan for addressing those firearms already distributed…
Provide a sample of the Sugar Weasel and Mini Fix firearms to ATF for an official clarification…
Just to make sure everyone was clear they were telling, not asking, ATF warned of consequences if they weren’t promptly obeyed:

“Your failure to take the above steps may result in (1) law enforcement action by ATF, including a referral of this matter to the United States Attorney’ Office for criminal prosecution; (2) tax assessment and collection; and/or (3) seizure and forfeiture of the firearms and property involved in violations of Federal law.”

Boston Field Division Special Agent in Charge Kelly Brady didn’t even think highly enough of the subjects he was threatening to sign the order himself but assigned that to an underling. When projecting unopposable power, it pays to be arrogant. Continue reading “”

Well, you know the next few days most of the oxygen is going to be sucked out of anything newsworthy other than the Senate hearing for Judge Barrett.

But MILESFORTIS will still span the globe to bring you the thrill of reporting, hopefully without the agony of the propaganda.

If he actually has the power to do it (and that’s quite debatable); This has to be the most glaring example of the lack of self awareness I’ve ever seen, or Cuomo has finally channeled his inner fascist and thinks he’s Mussolini reincarnated.
