Biden Checks Watch and Disrespects Dead Warriors

Published

on

The disrespect of President Biden for the warriors who sacrificed their lives in the service of the country continues.  At the “dignified transfer” of the warrior, President Biden seemed callous and uncaring about the suffering of the families who lost loved ones by checking his watch.  Families of the fallen had gathered at a  Dover Air Force Base to welcome home their bodies.

The Service Members Who Lost Their Life

The 13 service members who were killed in a terrorist attack at the Kabul airport were:

Sgt. Johanny Rosario Pichardo, 25, of Lawrence, Massachusetts

Sgt. Nicole L. Gee, 23, of Sacramento, California

Staff Sgt. Darin T. Hoover, 31, of Salt Lake City, Utah

Cpl. Hunter Lopez, 22, of Indio, California, a rifleman

Cpl. Daegan W. Page, 23, of Omaha, Nebraska, a rifleman

Cpl. Humberto A. Sanchez, 22, of Logansport, Indiana, a rifleman

Lance Cpl. David L. Espinoza, 20, of Rio Bravo, Texas, a rifleman

Lance Cpl. Jared M. Schmitz, 20, of St. Charles, Missouri, a rifleman

Lance Cpl. Rylee J. McCollum, 20, of Jackson, Wyoming, a rifleman

Lance Cpl. Dylan R. Merola, 20, of Rancho Cucamonga, California, a rifleman

Lance Cpl. Kareem M. Nikoui, 20, of Norco, California

Navy Corpsman Maxton W. Soviak, 22, of Berlin Heights, Ohio

Staff Sgt. Ryan C. Knauss, 23, of Corryton, Tennessee

The combined average age of these brave warriors is 22.38 years old.   Five of the service members were only 20 years of age.  Biden, who has served in Congress for over 50 years, made decisions that took the lives of these young warriors, which will now impact the lives of their families forever.  The least that a commander and chief can do in honor of those who have given their lives to protect this country is to show respect in transferring their bodies.

President Biden wants credit for the decision to leave Afghanistan but wants to take no responsibility for how the withdrawal has taken place.  The reality is that President Trump was the one that decided that it was time to end US troop occupation in Afghanistan, not Biden.  Trump understood the dangers of the withdrawal and wanted to ensure the safety of all Americans.  President Biden should not get credit for a decision that he would not have the courage to make. He should, however, get all the credit for how the withdrawal has unfolded and the complete disaster it has made America look on the national stage.

They Deserve Better, and So Does Every American

President Biden will continue to make bad decisions if the first months of his presidency are any indication.  It was a bad decision to remove the troops before moving the equipment.  It was a bad decision to trust a terrorist organization with the lives of American citizens.  And it was a bad decision to check his watch during a somber event honoring fallen heroes.  The warriors deserved better, and so does the American people.

Conservative Justices are Still in Danger. Joe Biden Could Change That Today

Published

on

United States Supreme Court

Just because the Supreme Court ruling that overturns Roe v. Wade has finally been issued, it doesn’t mean the lives of the court’s conversative justices are any safer from pro-abortion extremists.

The President could immediately use the bully pulpit to minimize any threat to the lives of those sitting on the bench. It’s something he should have done weeks ago but should certainly do in the wake of the Dobbs. v. Jackson ruling.

Here’s the question that needs to be asked of President Biden or his spokesperson today:

Trending on PolitiCrossing.com: Tucker: Scarred by Insurrection 2.0

“As you know, a man with the intent to kill Justice Kavanaugh was arrested outside his home a few weeks ago. The pro-choice group, Jane’s Revenge, has committed many recent acts of violence and is now threatening a night of rage in response to today’s SCOTUS ruling. If, God forbid, a pro-choice extremist were to assassinate a sitting justice, how would the President think about filling such a vacancy?”

That answer should be simple:

“Obviously, this is a horrible hypothetical which reasonable Americans of all parties hope never comes to fruition. That said, it’s a fair question given today’s heated political climate and one he has thought about deeply. In such a terrible situation, the President would nominate a new appointee that looks as much like the deceased justice as possible. Beliefs, age, temperament – all of it. Were a conservative justice to suffer such harm, the President would ask Republicans to find that matching replacement, whom he would then nominate. Those rare, few extremists who might think to do harm to sitting members of the court must know they will never gain a political advantage through such an act of violence. I would hope that leading Republicans would make a similar pledge regarding the next time they hold the White House, that this thinking will become the unwritten and well understood rule here in D.C.. It is one of the few concepts that members of both parties should be able to commit to with full voice.”

This message has to be plain and, given the political climate, it must be stated ASAP.

Would a Biden white house make such a statement? Doubtful, given the left’s tacit support of the violence it likes through its refusal to condemn Jane’s Revenge, BLM riots, etc.

So be it. If Joe Biden won’t answer the question clearly, it should then be forced upon him. How?

By asking the same hypothetical of all leading national GOP figures. Take this same question straight to Trump, DeSantis, Noem, Haley, etc. and let’s see what they say.

I have a lot of hope they would all answer that question correctly and convincingly, but let’s find out.

Joe Biden told us he would be a unifying figure. Is he capable of finally delivering on that promise for the first time, at a moment when it’s needed most?

Tech Tools Leading to Our Fast-Forward Future

Researchers will likely develop nearly every tech tool you’ve seen in science-fiction movies and television

Published

on

Lowell Catlett, a retired professor in Agricultural Economics and Agricultural Business, observes that all the high tech products on your desk and in your home will soon be antiques from a capability stand point. The almighty chip grows smaller and more powerful, and thanks to advanced microscopics, they’re proceeding towards a time in which the chip will be no thicker than a fraction of a human hair. In fact, microscopic motors today are no thicker than a human hair!

A World of Marvels

Scientists and engineers will likely soon develop nearly every technology you’ve ever seen in sci-fi movies, Superman comics, and all of the versions of Star Trek. Many miraculous breakthroughs are available now, but simply are not cost-effective for the masses. Existing sunglasses – far beyond the ill-fated Google Glass – allow you to watch any television show while you’re wearing them, wherever you are.

As “sun glass” technology is perfected, future models can be built right into your eye. You’ll automatically have protection from sun glare as daylight levels change. Laser technology in sunglasses for U.S. Air Force pilots will enable them to fire missiles or operate plane controls through their eye movements!

Professor Catlett says, “Once you combine laser and computer technology, you’re able to read smart books – books that know when you’ve lingered on a word and hence, don’t understand its meaning.” So, then and there, while you’ve got your magic sunglasses on and are reading this book, a synonym pops up on the screen.

Instant Updates

Well-funded fire and police departments will equip each of their officers with such sunglasses to instantaneously give them updated information in the field. A firefighter entering a burning building could be told to turn left to safety, rather than right. A police officer could be told that the bridge is out 50 yards ahead and to take a hard right into the sandbank.

One day, politicians will be fitted with such technology. A new algorithm for identifying thumb prints, ten times faster than what currently exists, is nearly ready. Hence, about 30 seconds after you look at someone across a room his name will spell out in the corner of one of your lenses. No more forgetting old what’s-his-name.

Every sales force worth its salt will be outfitted with such lenses. Imagine, you walk into a new company, you don’t know a soul, and soon enough you’re greeting everyone by his/her first name. Until the technology is widely known, you’ll be regarded as some type of wizard.

Think Your Way Through It

The electronic headband, an emerging product, allows you to think your way to everything you want to do in your home. Sitting in your armchair, you’ll be able to lock the doors. You’ll be able to start your coffee maker. Want the television on or off? You’ve got it. Same with the lights. Refrigerator door. Windows up or down.

If you want to write a letter to your sister in Des Moines, you’ll only need to think the letter. You’ll be able to “program” your personal computer, write, and e-mail the message simply through your thoughts.

Soon, jet pilots flying billion dollar planes will be able to sit in the cockpit, think about what they want to do next, and have the plane be totally responsive. “Ultimately,” says Catlett, “machinery will be totally user-friendly. No instructions, no need to speak, no need to do anything, just think what you want to do.”

The Ubiquitous Computer

The world will enter a stage of the “ubiquitous computer.” Computers will be all around you, anywhere you go, built into the side of walls. They’ll be so powerful and all encompassing that they’ll be virtually invisible.
