Is the 47th president of the United States now “Mr. ‘Presidential Aide?'”
Article by Bob Unruh from WND.
Many Republicans disliked Joe Biden’s projected far-leftist policies and actions, and they opposed him during the 2020 election.
Other members of the GOP simply didn’t want a Democrat running the nation’s then-surging economy after the COVID-19 pandemic, for which President Trump had facilitated the quick development of vaccines.
Some DID support him, mainly because they didn’t like President Trump’s personality.
But a good number of others in the GOP were alarmed at his long history of, and worsening, gaffes. Verbal blunders, misstatements, lost thoughts.
It appears now even a number of Democrats are sharing that concern, as a new poll from Rasmussen Reports reveals, “A majority of voters don’t think President Joe Biden is mentally and physically capable of doing his job, and suspect the White House is actually being run by others.”
The poll found 39% of Likely U.S. Voters believe Biden really is doing the job of president – down from 47% in March.
“A majority of voter (51%) now say others are making decisions for Biden behind the scenes. Another 10% are not sure,” the report said.
The survey of 1,000 U.S. Likely Voters was conducted on August 18-19, 2021 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence.
Washington Secrets columnist Paul Bedard at the Washington Examiner, who regularly monitors such results, explained, “Pre-election concerns that President Joe Biden wasn’t physically or mentally up for his new job at age 78, the oldest-ever chief executive, are now settling in as the public sees him slow-walking, refusing to consider questions at press conferences, and seemingly befuddled with the crisis in Afghanistan.”
“Not only has his average approval rating fallen below 50%, the lowest of his presidency, but a new survey has found that in addition to likely voters believing that Biden is not all there, they believe that aides are doing his job.”
The poll showed 52% of respondents are not confident that Biden is “up to the job of being president.”
“Women, men, white people, Republicans, and middle-aged to elderly voters lack confidence in Biden, according to the survey,” Bedard said.
The idea, however, is far from new. Bedard report that a similar poll just a month into Biden’s president revealed 33% said he isn’t mentally sharp enough for the job.
Biden’s agenda on a number of items, from high-spending infrastructure and election takeover to his self-inflicted immigration crisis, appears to have failed. And Biden seems unconcerned about spiking inflation, sure to hurt the lowest-income parts of American society.
Biden’s stumbles were on full display this week, in a televised interview with George Stephanopoulos, after which it was reported ABC edited long sections in order to keep hidden the worst of his befuddlement.
Besides word salads, Biden also claimed that horrific images out of Afghanistan, where the Taliban took power when he ordered U.S. troops out, were from four or five days ago, when they actually were from two days earlier.
When Stephanopoulos noted that Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said such a disaster was predicted, Biden’s response was, “What – what did he say was predicted?”
So what failed, Mr. President? Stephanopoulos asked.
“Look, I don’t think it was a fa — look, it was a simple choice, George. When the — when the Taliban — let me back — put it another way. When you had the government of Afghanistan, the leader of that government get in a plane and taking off and going to another country, when you saw the significant collapse of the ta– of the– Afghan troops we had trained — up to 300,000 of them just leaving their equipment and taking off, that was — you know, I’m not– this — that — that’s what happened.”
Biden refused to admit that his own top military advisers warned against such a withdrawal.
He claimed there was no “good” time to leave.
“No one can name for me a time when this would end. And what– wha– wha– what– what constitutes defeat of the Taliban? What constitutes defeat? Would we have left then? Let’s say they surrender like before. OK. Do we leave then? Do you think anybody– the same people who think we should stay would’ve said, “No, good time to go”? We spent over $1 trillion, George, 20 years. There was no good time to leave.”
Biden also claimed, “No one’s being killed right now,” even though many fatalities already have been reported.
Stephanopoulos asked if the nation should “accept the idea” that an exit “was gonna be messy no matter what.”
Biden asked, “What would be messy?”
The president’s response when asked how history will view the U.S. experience in Afghanistan: “One that we overextended what we needed to do to deal with our national interest. That’s like my sayin’ they– they’re– they– they b– b– the border of Tajikistan– and– other– what– does it matter? Are we gonna go to war because of what’s goin’ on in Tajikistan? What do you think?”
Fox News said Biden was panned for his comments.
British media personality Piers Morgan said: “Biden’s failure to even admit to his catastrophic mistake, when the whole world has watched the disaster unfurl on live TV, is both breathtakingly arrogant & disturbingly delusional. He either doesn’t care or is in denial.”
The Dangers of Speaking the Truth Diminish If We Work Together
It’s becoming harder and harder for patriots to ignore the deep suppression of truth that’s happening in America today.
In all of my years in journalism, I have never received as many threats or been attacked by big companies like Google and Facebook as I have in 2021. I’d say that ever since we started covering widespread voter fraud, government-endorsed Pandemic Panic Theater, vaccine cover-ups, Critical Race Theory, and the various Neo-Marxist and Satanic agendas at play, I’ve been targeted more in months than the entirety of my life prior.
Speaking the truth is getting harder with so much censorship and suppression rampant. Prior to 2020, I was not a “conspiracy theorist” or an “anti-vaxxer,” but if there’s one thing the onslaught of exposed lies have taught us in the last 18 months, it’s that we cannot take what we’re told by the “arbiters of truth” at face value. There’s an agenda behind every message, a narrative driving every story, and a series of gigantic cover-ups designed to keep the masses in the dark.
This is why we’re building a network of news outlets that are willing to go against the narrative and expose the truth. We need help. We’re establishing strong partnerships with like-minded news outlets and courageous journalists. Even as Big Tech suppresses us, the honest messages they’re trying to quash are finding their way to the eyes and ears of patriots across the nation. With the help of new content partners like The Epoch Times and The Liberty Daily, we’re starting to see a real impact.
Our network is currently comprised of nine sites:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Truth. Based. Media.
- Freedom First Network
- Based Underground
- Uncanceled News
- American Conservative Movement
- Conservative Playbook
- Our Gold Guy
Some of our content is spread across all of these sites. Other pieces of content are unique. We write most of what we post but we also draw from those willing to allow us to share their quality articles, videos, and podcasts. We collect the best content from fellow conservative sites that give us permission to republish them. We’re not ego-driven; I’d much rather post a properly attributed story written by experts like Dr. Joseph Mercola or Natural News than rewrite it like so many outlets like to do. We’re not here to take credit. We’re here to spread the truth.
I’ve said much of this before. From time to time I reframe this request for assistance by taking the most relevant message of the day and adjusting the story accordingly. We’ve discussed this network in previous articles. Now, it’s time to talk about help. First and foremost, we need financial assistance detailed below. But we could also use more writers who are willing to volunteer their thoughts for the sake of spreading the message. Those who are interested should contact me directly.
As far as money, we’re looking better than we have in the recent past, but we are currently experiencing a gap between revenue and expenses that cannot be overcome by click-ads and MyPillow promos alone (promo code “NOQ” by the way).
To overcome our revenue gap and keep these sites running, our needs fluctuate between $2200-$7800 per month. May, 2021, for example, was amazing and we almost broke even. June, revenue was sluggish at best and we had to make up a big difference out of our pockets. But we’re not just trying to get out of the red. If and when we start getting enough contributions to expand, we will do just that. Very few get into journalism to try to get rich and we’re definitely not among those who do. Our success is driven by spreading the truth, profitable or not.
The best way you can help us grow and continue to bring proper news and opinions to the people is by donating. We appreciate everything, whether a dollar or $10,000. Anything brings us closer to a point of stability when we can hire writers, editors, and support staff to make the America First message louder. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal or Bitcoin as well. Bitcoin: 3A1ELVhGgrwrypwTJhPwnaTVGmuqyQrMB8
Time is short. As the world spirals towards radical progressivism, the need for truthful journalism has never been greater. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report and the other sites in the network going. Our promise is this: We will never sell out America. If that means we’re going to struggle for a while or even indefinitely, so be it. Integrity first. Truth first. America first.
Thank you and God Bless,
