Joe Biden Camp Agrees to Trump’s Bombastic Request for a Urine Test

Joe Biden’s camp agrees to Trump’s bombastic request to take a urine test before or after their first 2020 Presidential debate scheduled for Tuesday, September 29.

Trump has repeatedly bolstered claims that Biden does not have the mental acuity to lead this nation as President of the United States. Hence, he has given him the nickname “Sleepy Joe.”

At a rally in Fayetteville, North Carolina he suggested to his supporters that performance-enhancing drugs were the reason for his Democratic opponent’s efficiency during debates and public appearances.

His base laughed when the President of the United States, referring to Biden, said:

You never know, they gave him a big, fat shot in the ass and he comes out. And for two hours he’s better than ever before. The problem is, what happens after that.

Biden’s camp fired back at Trump’s baseless rhetoric with pun intended. Kate Bedingfield, Biden’s deputy campaign manager, stated it was fitting that Trump would ask for a urine test since he pissed away his opportunity to prevent 200,000 deaths due to his poor response to COVID-19.

BidenRequest for a Urine Test Could Backfire

Trump’s angle that Biden is a “dumb guy” and his request for a urine test to rule out drugs could backfire as he is setting a very low bar for the Democratic presidential hopeful to pass during the first of three upcoming debates. Trump, who does not always complete his sentences, was also called out on his own mental prowess when he was admitted to the hospital in Nov. 2019.

Chris Wallace from Fox News will moderate the debate but it is not his job to fact check either opponent.

Trump 74, and Biden 77, will debate the following six topics on Tuesday, Sept. 29:

  • Both their records
  • The Supreme Court
  • COVID-19
  • The Economy
  • Race and Violence in our Cities
  • The Integrity of the Election

Biden commented that his strategy is —  to tell the truth.

Rep. Marjorie Greene Starts Impeachment Process Against Joe Biden

Published

greene

Rep. Marjorie Greene (R-Ga.) announced she filed articles of impeachment against Joe Biden. As she promised a week ago, the documents were submitted the day after his inauguration — Jan. 21, 2021.

The articles’ content specifying impeachable offenses has not been released as yet. However, Greene indicated the document accuses Biden of abuse of power during his term as vice president under ex-President Obama. Greene asserts he allowed “his son, Hunter, to serve on the board of a Ukrainian energy company,” reports Cristina Marcos for The Hill.

greeneGreene says the president is not fit to hold office. Biden’s pattern of abuse of power is lengthy and disturbing. She further contends he has proven that bailing his son out by doing whatever it takes.

Moreover, Greene said he lined his pockets and his family with cash from corrupt foreign energy companies.

The president’s son, Hunter Biden, is under Federal investigation that is supported by Suspicious Activity Reports (SARs) regarding questionable foreign business dealings. In December 2020, a source told FOX News that the suspicious transactions involved China and other countries.

Both Bidens deny they have done anything warranting such scrutiny. The younger Biden acknowledged the federal probe but adamantly states he handled all of his dealings legitimately and legally.

The White House Secretary Jen Psaki told the press corps that the president would not discuss the investigation.

Balance of Power Shifts in Senate as Impeachment Trial Awaits

Published

on

senate

As Senators return from their break on Jan. 19, 2021, major changes are on the docket – three new Congressmen to be seated and confirming President-elect Joe Biden’s Cabinet. Now that the Senate is split 50-50, leadership will be shared between Mitch McConnell and Chuck Schumer. Then, there is Donald Trump’s impeachment trial.

Warnock, Ossoff, and Padilla

Once their meeting begins, Democrats Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff of Georgia did not take their oath of office on January 3 when the rest of the Senate was as they did not win their runoff races three days later.

The third new Senator joins Congress as Vice-President-elect Kamala Harris’ replacement — California Secretary of State Alex Padilla. Gov. Gavin Newsom appointed Padilla on Tuesday, January 18, after Harris resigned. His first day in Congress has yet to be announced.

New Balance of Power

Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) entered Congress in 1985, was elected as a minority whip in 2004, was elected as the minority leader, and finally elected as majority leader in 2015. He has held that position for the past five years.

senateMinority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) joined Congress in 1999, and in 2017 he was elected as the minority leader.

Once Warnock and Ossoff have taken their oaths, the Senate composition will be 48 Republicans, 48 Democrats, and two independents who vote with the Democrats.

The balance of power will shift. Both McConnell and Schumer will lead the Senate. They “will have to agree on a set of rules, known as an organizing resolution, which governs how the Senate works. The organizing resolution determines everything from committee membership and staff budgets, to who gets the best office space,” according to Time Magazine.

On January 20, Vice President Harris will lead the Senate — she will be the “tie-breaker in chief.”
