FOX NEWS: DAVID BOSSIE: Debt ceiling deal's biggest loser is the American people. Republicans, Dems hell-bent on driving us into debt

The so-called deal to raise the debt limit reached by President Joe Biden and House Speaker Kevin McCarthy fails to address America’s addiction to out-of-control spending.  

At a time when we’re staring down the barrel of a once-unthinkable $32 trillion national debt, our leaders are attempting to pull another fast one on the very people that they’re supposed to be fighting for. Exactly no one in Washington was elected to abdicate responsibility by putting off difficult decisions for another day, but this proposal does exactly that.

Kentucky Republican Rep. Thomas Massie’s vote in the Rules Committee to advance the measure to the House floor in the end will turn out to be a consequential mistake. Massie supplied the critical 7th vote for the deal because the package includes language he pushed that is supposed to make it more difficult for members of Congress to abuse the spending process if they don’t pass appropriations bills on time again. Massie’s idea is well-intentioned, but the idea that the Washington uni-party won’t find a loophole is naive.

Recent polling indicates loudly and clearly that the American people support a plan that raises the debt limit only if legitimate spending cuts happen simultaneously. Republicans in the House of Representatives had President Biden on the defensive with a common sense conservative message that proved impossible for the White House to defeat.

The one-two punch of fiscal responsibility and a return to normalcy after the COVID-19 pandemic was resonating deeply and after months of refusing to negotiate, Biden finally realized that he had to come to the table or get blamed for a default.

Hardworking taxpayers understand that it’s irresponsible to keep spending $2 trillion more annually than we did before the pandemic began.

In April, the House GOP passed a reasonable bill that dealt with our national debt crisis with the urgency it deserves. It acknowledged that Washington has a spending problem and that the broken status quo is no longer acceptable. The Limit Save Grow Act made tangible spending cuts -- no phony smoke and mirror cuts -- and put in place real work requirements for welfare recipients.

Changing the way Washington does business is what’s required to change our current trajectory of fiscal doom, no more no less. Congressional Republicans answered the call at a time when career politicians on the left were caught with their hands in the cookie jar yet again.

The Republican-passed bill rightly clawed back unspent COVID money, dismantled the unfair student loan giveaway, cut the $80 billion that Joe Biden wants for more IRS agents, and allowed for a debt limit increase only until March 2024 -- so voters get another say in future federal spending decisions during the heat of next year’s presidential campaign.

The negotiated Biden-McCarthy swampy agreement on the other hand smacks of your typical backroom Washington deal that amounts to more of the same. And when you consider how dire our fiscal situation is, it completely fails to rise to the occasion. Any family who racks up a sizable amount of debt would sit down and actually fix the problem -- not kick the can down the road again. The American people are sick and tired of tone-deaf politicians in D.C.

The first problem with this deal is that it punts the next national debt debate until after the presidential election in January 2025. This makes absolutely no sense.

Republicans must make federal spending an issue during the 2024 presidential campaign and this flawed agreement would take the issue off the table. Why any Republican would support a bill that saddles the incoming Republican president with this steaming pile immediately upon taking office is beyond comprehension.

The Biden-McCarthy bill also makes a mockery of what most people consider meaningful spending cuts and only claws back a small percentage of unspent COVID funds. The fact that this legislation fails to get back every cent of the funds that were intended to combat COVID-19 should tell you all you need to know about the wisdom of the proposal.

Furthermore, Speaker McCarthy’s negotiators Reps. Patrick McHenry and Garrett Graves also caved in to the White House on their unconstitutional student loan program, their Inflation Reduction Act heist, and their new battalion of new IRS agents. When it comes to the concept of actual fiscal reform, adding $4 trillion to our national debt in return for little in the way of spending cuts simply doesn’t pass the smell test and ought to be rejected.

Even in this hyper-partisan atmosphere, Americans of all stripes agree -- 79% of Republicans, 58% of independents, and 45% of Democrats – that real spending cuts in exchange for a debt ceiling increase are in order. So, it’s difficult to understand why the McCarthy team failed to demand more at a moment when they clearly had the American people on their side.

The good news is that it’s not a done deal. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen changed the default date once, so she’ll do it again if necessary.

So, there’s still some time to send the negotiators back to the table so that they can give Americans something that moves the needle in the right direction on our national debt for a change.

Let’s get this right. For once.

DAILY CALLER: DAVID BOSSIE: Republicans’ Common-Sense Demands Are Winning The Debt Ceiling Debate

Republicans are winning the debt ceiling fight for two main reasons. First, the vast majority of Americans value and understand common sense. The issues being debated are spending decisions not unlike the ones hardworking folks have to deal with at their kitchen tables on any given night. This reality alone has made it very difficult for President Joe Biden and his allies in the biased mainstream media to manipulate the narrative.

It’s simply a matter of common sense to reform spending habits if you accumulate a mountain of debt, everyone knows that. It’s common sense to claw back unspent COVID emergency funds now that the pandemic is over. It’s common sense to require able-bodied adults to find work in exchange for getting welfare benefits. And it’s common sense to let the American people have another say about federal spending next year before the 2024 presidential election. These are the positions being championed by House Speaker Kevin McCarthy at the negotiating table.

The other reason for the GOP’s momentum as we hurl toward the June 5th default deadline is that President Biden’s overall approval rating is way under water and how Americans view his handling of the economy is even worse. Just 41 percent approve of the job President Biden is doing compared to 54 percent disapproving. And according to a new AP poll, on economic matters, an abysmal 33 percent approve of the president’s policies. President Biden has finally decided to negotiate — after months of arrogantly refusing to do so — because he’s been in Washington long enough to know who gets blamed for economic downturns during election years: the person sitting in the Oval Office.

Making Biden’s hand that much worse is the fact that House Republicans already passed a debt ceiling bill nearly a month ago. By just putting his plan on the table for all to see, Speaker McCarthy surprised his leftist adversaries and put them on the defensive. In response, Biden and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer wrongly decided to offer more political gamesmanship instead of offering their own plan. Now people are coming to the conclusion that if the White House and Senate Democrats had operated in good faith, we wouldn’t be days away from going off the economic cliff due to a Biden-Schumer induced default.

But unfortunately, this is the modus operandi for career left-wing politicians like Biden and Schumer. Legislate from crisis to crisis, convince the lapdogs in the liberal media that a $31 trillion national debt isn’t something to worry about, and kick the can down the road for our children and grandchildren. It’s been refreshing to see McCarthy and the younger generation of House conservatives confront this failed mentality of the past. It’s flat out irresponsible to keep spending out of control like this. It took America 211 years to accrue $5 trillion of debt and only 23 years to tack on an additional $26 trillion. Anyone choosing not to see the enormity of this problem has no business serving in high office.

For Speaker McCarthy and his band of reformers in the U.S. House, now comes the hard part. Biden and those fighting to preserve business as usual are going to lie until they’re blue in the face. They’re going to say your responsible reforms are drastic; they’re going to make false assertions about entitlement programs; they’re going to throw it at all at the wall and see what sticks. But this is the time to stick to your guns. It’s been a long three years to get out from under the COVID pandemic and the American people desperately want to get back to normal and they expect their leaders to follow suit, particularly on matters involving federal spending.

We’re about to see if Joe Biden remembers what he said in his inaugural address just 28 months ago. “With unity we can do great things. Important things,” the president declared. We’re these just the hollow words of another out of touch career politician? We’re about to find out.

WASHINGTON TIMES: DAVID BOSSIE: Biden’s axis of secrecy: Control the narrative, cling to power

Congressional Republicans are finding out how challenging it is to fulfill their constitutional duty of executive branch oversight when forced to deal with an unprecedented axis of secrecy that has locked arms to help reelect President Biden.

The axis consists of the Biden administration — the least transparent administration in history — and its political allies in the corrupt mainstream media and a cadre of left-wing obstructionists in Congress. They work hand in glove to deny the American people information and to ignore newsworthy events that might damage their cause of fundamentally transforming the United States of America into a “woke” socialist state.

Due to this destructive pattern of keeping Americans in the dark, lots of important issues on Capitol Hill aren’t getting nearly enough attention. First, news broke that an IRS agent investigating the president’s son Hunter Biden, who blew the whistle on the Justice Department’s alleged mishandling of the yearslong inquiry, was removed from the case along with his entire team. Since then, a second IRS whistleblower has come forward to offer even more details about what’s happening behind the scenes.

Normally, using the levers of power in government to retaliate against a whistleblower is behavior that garners a strong bipartisan rebuke and is covered extensively by the media across the board. Sadly, in Joe Biden’s America, this is no longer the case. In the course of a little more than two years, Democrats and the left-wing media have gone from showcasing unflinching support for whistleblowers to disrespect and indifference.

Along the same lines, the FBI recently failed to comply with a congressional subpoena for a document that alleges specific and detailed criminal activity by Mr. Biden during his tenure as vice president. The existence of the document in question was disclosed by another courageous whistleblower and, due to the explosive topic, is something that would typically get wall-to-wall coverage.

Unfortunately, potential wrongdoing by powerful establishment Democrats like Joe Biden is largely ignored these days, and congressional subpoenas are treated differently by the mainstream media if they’re issued by Republicans.

Another important story that’s being glossed over by congressional Democrats and the liberal media is the State Department’s refusal to fully comply with a congressional subpoena for documents relating to President Biden’s botched withdrawal of U.S. forces from Afghanistan that would be politically detrimental if disclosed. The situation got so bad that House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Michael McCaul was about to hold Secretary of State Antony Blinken in contempt of Congress until Mr. Blinken finally bowed to pressure in the 11th hour.

The least transparent administration in history is still refusing to release the document to the public and allowed only Mr. McCaul and the ranking Democrat on the committee to review it in secret. This is the same stunt that Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen pulled with Hunter Biden’s suspicious activity reports after months of delay. The good news is that Republicans on the committee are continuing to fight for more transparency and accountability, and Mr. Blinken isn’t off the hook — not by a long shot.

The CIA is also stiff-arming legitimate congressional oversight efforts by failing to turn over all records relating to the infamous October 2020 letter signed by 51 former intelligence officials falsely claiming the Hunter Biden laptop was Russian disinformation. The letter was used to give then-candidate Biden an angle to dismiss the contents of the laptop in a prime-time presidential debate against then-President Donald Trump. As it turns out, the Biden laptop is real, and the letter in question was actually disinformation.

This disturbing turn of events is precisely the kind of information that the axis of secrecy wants to contain at all costs.

Last but not least is the left’s monolithic push to discredit and suppress special counsel John Durham’s long-awaited report on the Obama-Biden administration’s decision to allow the Justice Department and FBI to investigate then-candidate Trump during the 2016 presidential campaign. Mr. Durham’s troubling findings confirm that the investigation should have never been opened because the bogus allegations were based on phony political opposition research paid for and executed by Hillary Clinton and her failed campaign. Everyone knew it, including then-President Barack Obama and then-Vice President Biden.

The fake Russia collusion investigation and the liberal media’s blind coverage of it dragged on for more than four years, even though it should have never gotten off the launch pad. It’s a story that should be dominating the news and drawing outrage from both sides of the political aisle so that it never happens again, but not in Mr. Biden’s closed society.

Sadly, we’ll never know the full story because former FBI Director James Comey, former FBI acting Director Andrew McCabe and many others weren’t even questioned by Mr. Durham’s office — another story the mainstream media won’t touch with a 10-foot pole.

After nearly 2½ years, it’s become clear that secrecy, delay, nondisclosure, obstruction, and frivolous document redactions are the Biden administration’s preferred modus operandi, but left-wing media elites and dishonest Democrats in Congress couldn’t care less because they share a goal: Control the narrative and cling to power in order to realize their dream for the Socialist States of America.

DAILY CALLER: DAVID BOSSIE: The Biden Crime Family Report Is A Game-Changer

The U.S. House Committee on Oversight and Accountability chaired by Congressman James Comer of Kentucky released a game-changing interim report in their investigation into Biden family corruption this week sending shockwaves through Washington, D.C. that could have been measured on the Richter scale.

The meticulously detailed 36-page briefing memo made one thing perfectly clear: The Biden family is in politics not just for public service, but also to make money — and lots of it. Four subpoenas yielded the mother lode of bank records and wire transfer reports that provided critical details into the alleged criminal enterprise that the American people have been reading about — and lied to about — for years now. The underlying source documents show how Biden family members and business associates set up a complex network of over twenty limited liability corporations and shell companies in order to move and conceal funds, and in the process make it abundantly more difficult for any investigators like Chairman Comer to follow the flow of money from business to business and account to account.

To date, official financial records show more than $10 million flowing from foreign sources in China and Romania into accounts controlled by Biden business associates who then disseminated large amounts of cash to as many as nine Biden family members, including Hunter Biden. And anyone who’s been following this story for the past five years knows that this is just the tip of the iceberg. There are more countries, more international businessmen, and millions more in foreign income for the Biden family — and it’s all going to come out for the American people to see for themselves. House Republicans will continue to methodically follow the money, just like in the case of President Richard Nixon and Watergate. And much to Joe Biden’s chagrin, bank records didn’t lie back then and they don’t lie now.

The Comer report has put everyone on notice that this scandal is real and it’s not going away. Now that the public has gotten to see images of all of these big money wire transfers from foreign sources with their own eyes, President Biden can no longer simply dismiss it all as “not true.” You see, someone is lying and it’s not the documents. These shady and lucrative financial transactions took place both during and after Joe Biden’s vice presidency and that goes to the core questions of the case. First, what exactly did the extended Biden family do to earn all of this of this income; and second, what did Joe Biden know and when did he know it?

The White House and their allies in the biased mainstream media are trying — with a straight face believe it or not — to say that President Biden wasn’t a part of these corrupt business ventures that were taking place while he was serving as Barack Obama’s vice president. That strains credulity because anyone with a lick of common sense sees this for what it is — a high dollar influence peddling operation that spiraled out of control. Those suggesting that Hunter Biden and James Biden would have made all this money if Joe Biden wasn’t a very powerful politician sitting at the highest levels of government can’t be taken seriously. Let’s be honest; this money didn’t come in because Hunter Biden is some business genius or public policy expert. This money came in because Joe Biden was a sitting Vice President of the United States who someday might be president. And on January 20, 2021, those investments paid off in spades.

In fact, the evidence suggests not only did Joe Biden know about these deals, but that he was the lynchpin of the whole operation. It’s for that reason and that reason alone that this investigation is an investigation focused on the activities of the president of the United States and not his son, or any other family member. Case in point is several of the sinister wire transfers in question ended up in an account labeled simply as “Biden.” President Biden must come clean about these transactions without delay and tell the American people who this bank account belongs to. No more disinformation campaigns. No more lies. No more ducking questions. No more malarkey.

FOX NEWS: DAVID BOSSIE: The walls are closing in on Biden family corruption

Chairman James Comer and his dogged Republican colleagues on the House Committee on Oversight and Accountability made history this week. They came forward with factual evidence against President Joe Biden and his extended family that make President Nixon’s Watergate investigation and President Clinton’s Whitewater investigation look like traffic infractions by comparison. 

If there was ever a doubt, it’s clear now that a thin five-seat majority in the House can make an enormous difference in the fight for transparency and integrity at the highest levels of government in Washington, D.C.

The consequential information that was released makes it clear that Joe Biden is the central figure in this investigation because it was his powerful position in high office that made the millions in foreign income for his family and business associates a reality.

Wednesday’s press conference at the U.S. Capitol outlined in granular detail how Biden family members and business associates set up a tangled web of limited liability corporations in order to receive more than $10 million from foreign nationals and companies in Communist China and Romania.

The explosive allegations made public Wednesday aren’t just claims or opinions; the Comer Committee is simply reporting to the American people what official bank records are indicating took place.

Wednesday’s fact-dominated briefing led by Chairman Comer was the press conference that former Special Counsel Robert Mueller was supposed to have conducted. Mueller was appointed to investigate President Donald Trump’s alleged connection to Russia and any business he was doing overseas.

For two years, an army of prosecutors and investigators found no evidence of wrongdoing by President Trump or his family because there was no there-there. But the Biden case is very different and House Republicans came with the receipts to back it up.

The oversight committee’s mantra that "bank records don’t lie" is an inconvenient fact that President Biden can’t explain away by simply denying these transactions ever took place. By insinuating these records are false, President Biden is in essence accusing reputable financial institutions of keeping phony records.

Now that images of these records are out there for public inspection in the committee’s new 36-page memo, the burden is on President Biden and his family to explain why they’re lying to the American people by insisting this is all some far-fetched conspiracy theory.

Their explanations are such an insult at this point that they can no longer be accepted.

Everyone knows -- due to the mountain of documented evidence -- that Hunter Biden’s laptop is real, the wire transfers coming in from foreign nations are real, and the deposits in Biden bank accounts are real.

If the mainstream media chooses not to engage on this story, their credibility will be so damaged that it will be impossible to repair. Just because they got the Trump story wrong then, it doesn’t make it right to ignore the Biden story now.

Just four targeted bank subpoenas have provided a treasure trove of evidence pointing to an overseas-focused family influence peddling operation designed to cash in on Joe Biden when he was vice president of the United States.

Peeling another layer of onion has brought into focus how far the Biden’s lucrative business extended and the sinister steps that were taken to make it all so difficult to trace.

It’s well worth noting that there was a time not so long ago when congressional Democrats cared a great deal about foreign influence.

The question of whether the sitting president of the United States is compromised on account of his family’s shady international business endeavors is a subject that should enjoy robust bipartisan support -- not underhanded obstructionist tactics by the minority party in the U.S. House. While following the money through bank records and Treasury Department Suspicious Activity Reports is a critical component of the Biden investigation, so is listening to government whistleblowers.

To date, two credible whistleblowers have come forward with enlightening evidence that must now be drilled down on. An IRS special agent has information pertaining to alleged preferential treatment that Hunter Biden is receiving with the Biden Justice Department’s handling of his investigation by the U.S. Attorney in Delaware.

The other allegation goes directly to the pay-for-play operation that the Biden family was conducting during Joe Biden’s vice presidency. Chairman Comer has subpoenaed the FBI for these records and is awaiting the details. This has caused many to wonder what President Barack Obama, Attorneys General Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch, and former FBI Director James Comey knew about "Biden, Inc." since a lot of it was unfolding on their watch.

Let’s face it, if the pile of evidence that Chairman James Comer just presented was directed at former President Donald Trump, there would have been calls for his immediate impeachment.

The elites responsible for this double standard must change direction, take these weighty allegations seriously and give them the attention they deserve for the sake of the country.

In the meantime, President Biden and Hunter Biden should stop ducking and provide some basic honesty and transparency.

WASHINGTON TIMES: DAVID BOSSIE: Biden’s pathetic and bizarre reelection launch: Not a worry in the world

President Biden doesn’t have a worry in the world. His staff is telling him that everything is going as planned. Democrats on Capitol Hill are telling him his policies are working perfectly. And because of that, no Democrat of any consequence is challenging him for his party’s nomination — because how could they? All you have to do is read the papers — we’re in the midst of the great American comeback, according to the Biden-Harris administration.

Mr. Biden’s reelection campaign pledge to “finish the job” tells you everything you need to know. We’re almost there, he says — all we have to do is persevere for a little longer to get to that sunny utopia that Uncle Joe is promising. According to the biased corporate media — the folks that decide what is information and what is disinformation — Mr. Biden’s first term has been an amazing thing to behold. Just trust us, they say — and don’t ask any questions — just like with the Trump-Russia hoax and Hunter’s laptop.

These are indeed uncertain times in America, and the once-respected mainstream media is doing its part. These years will be remembered as the moment when the Fourth Estate became a full-time political partner of the Democratic Party and no longer pretended to care. We’re seeing the death of impartial journalism and, sadly, the havoc it’s wreaking on an open society. President Biden’s remarks at the White House Correspondents’ Association dinner were fitting of the situation: “In a lot of ways, this dinner sums up my first two years in office. I’ll talk for 10 minutes, take zero questions, and cheerfully walk away.”

As Mr. Biden delivered this punchline the other night, the who’s who of the D.C. media elite exploded with laughter, with a wink and a nod. Mr. Biden’s behavior is so extraordinarily arrogant and carefree these days because the legacy media has become his enabler. You see, the president understands the game that’s afoot — the media is “all in” in its cover-up for him — because former President Donald Trump is still out there.

Mr. Biden’s reelection launch was pathetic and bizarre — and the liberal media in his pocket gleefully went along for the ride. They didn’t ask any tough questions, like, when’s the swing state rally in front of thousands of supporters? What problems have your policies fixed?

Are Americans better off today than they were four years ago? And perhaps most urgently, should a person in your condition — someone who didn’t remember just being in Ireland — really be in charge of the nuclear codes?

It was certainly clever how the disingenuous left-wing media made it about Mr. Biden’s age for a split second, then agreed in unison that it wasn’t cause for concern because he’ll probably be fine. But common sense tells us that things are far from all right in Mr. Biden’s America because people have an uneasy feeling — and that’s something the mainstream media can’t manipulate.

Hardworking American taxpayers are concerned about a prolonged economic downturn; they’re worried about interest rates, and they’re sick and tired of the high price of gas and groceries due to Mr. Biden’s out-of-control spending habits. They don’t like the new normal that this president’s have brought about.

This is not the second coming of the election of 1984, as Mr. Biden, Vice President Kamala Harris and their allies in the media so desperately want you to believe. But rest assured; this is not President Ronald Reagan’s morning in America; this is a souped-up version of President Jimmy Carter’s malaise. In 1984, Reagan revitalized our economy with pro-growth policies and had America out in front leading the world again as the shining city on a hill. Reagan spoke optimistically about hope, growth, and opportunity for all.

The Biden-Harris team has produced the exact opposite. We’re back to the failed big government ideas of the past that didn’t work then, and, surprise — aren’t working now either. And on foreign policy, peace through strength abroad has been junked for the Obama doctrine of leading from behind. Our adversaries are toying with us again because they don’t respect us again.

Mr. Biden didn’t have any good news to share in his reelection campaign rollout because there isn’t any. Crime is up; our border is a sieve; fentanyl deaths are through the roof; we’re funding another forever war in Ukraine; and our national debt is a once unfathomable $31 trillion with no end in sight — thanks to Mr. Biden’s unwillingness to compromise with House Republicans.

Make no mistake about it; If 2024 looks and feels a lot like 1980, then maybe it is 1980 all over again. If Mr. Carter had chosen “finish the job” as his slogan in 1980, he would have been laughed out of the room — by the mainstream media. But today, they laugh, wink and nod — and ask no tough questions of the old man — ever.

THE DAILY CALLER: DAVID BOSSIE: Biden Announces His 2024 Retirement Campaign

Joe Biden has chosen “Let’s Finish The Job” for his 2024 re-election campaign slogan. To tens of millions of hardworking taxpayers, this is a very scary proposition because they know that the job President Biden wants to finish is fundamentally transforming America into the world’s next failed socialist state.

Curiously, nowhere in Biden’s video announcing his candidacy for four more years in the White House did he mention even one accomplishment. Nowhere did he mention the economy, crime, foreign policy, or immigration. And there’s a good reason for that; the Biden agenda has failed us miserably. The Biden-Harris ‘24 three minute kick-off spot isn’t grounded in reality. In fact, it depicts the warped vision of a hopelessly tone deaf 80 year old career politician who’s in complete denial of where we are as a country.

Imagine for a moment if Jimmy Carter ran on “finishing the job” in 1980. He would have been laughed out of the room — and the same should go for Joe Biden. Biden came to office promising to heal and unify, but since coming to power he’s behaved like a bull in a china shop, breaking almost everything he’s come into contact with. This president opened our southern border and created a war zone and fentanyl epidemic; he spent and borrowed taxpayers dollars like a drunken sailor and created an inflation disaster; he embraced George Soros’ vision of “reimagining policing” and made our cities and neighborhoods far less safe; his drive to gut the American energy industry has caused gas prices to skyrocket and remain uncomfortably high; and despite our staggering $31 trillion national debt, Joe Biden is unwilling to trim even one dollar from the budget.

Because of Joe Biden’s reckless policies, recent polling indicates that 69 percent of the American people hold pessimistic views about our economy both now and for the future. Only 25 percent think America is on the right track compared to 65 percent who think we’re headed in the wrong direction. And President Biden himself is stuck with a dismally low approval rating in the low 40s — and that’s on a good day.

Let’s face it; Joe Biden had a chance to do something important by bringing Americans together after the 2020 COVID-19 election and he chose not to. So, the questions going forward are familiar ones. Are you better off today than you were three years ago? And is the world a more stable place with President Biden calling the shots? We all know the truth.

Unfortunately, Biden’s failures don’t stop at the water’s edge. No, this president’s incompetence is having a negative impact overseas as well. President Biden’s incomprehensible decision to pull out of Afghanistan has allowed the Taliban to retake the country, thus wasting twenty years of American blood and treasure. And his policy of sending untold billions of unchecked taxpayer dollars to Ukraine for “as long as it takes” to fund America’s next forever war is simply continuing his decades-long record of wrong moves on matters of foreign policy.

No one believes that President Biden is leading an American comeback. That’s a blatant lie that’s only been allowed to remain on life support due to the biased mainstream media’s ongoing cover-up. To be sure, the malaise that Joe Biden has brought to America smacks of the depressing days during the second half of President Carter’s term in 1979 and 1980. And similar to Carter’s leadership gap, our country isn’t respected around the world today; and this time the reason is Biden.

To make matters worse, Joe Biden is 80 years old and going on 90 it seems. Even the casual observer can see that this president isn’t firing on all cylinders. President Biden’s advanced age has forced him to delegate too much power to unelected senior staff and faceless bureaucrats and that’s yielded cataclysmic results for American families who deserve a fully functioning chief executive.

Questions about Biden’s cognitive decline and health will be an issue in the 2024 campaign, but just as important are the questions about whether this president is compromised due to his family’s complex web of overseas business entanglements with foreign adversaries. The liberal media won’t touch this story with a ten foot poll because they know an essential truth: bank records don’t lie. With each passing week, congressional investigators discover more international wire transfers ending up in Biden bank accounts. These allegations won’t go away and credible evidence from government whistleblowers will only keep them in the forefront going forward.

Washington Democrats have decided to throw caution to the wind and put all their eggs in Biden’s basket despite the downsides. It appears that no one in the Democrat Party with any electability has the courage to take on the perilous Biden-Harris ticket, like Senator Ted Kennedy did with his challenge to the unpopular Carter-Mondale team in 1980. So, leftists in Congress, the mainstream media, academia, and Big Tech are now forced to continue their efforts to prop up Joe Biden, but thankfully the American people have the ultimate say.

2024 will be a referendum on President Biden and his failed agenda — and it’s time for voters to “finish the job” and send him back to Delaware for his long overdue retirement.

FOX NEWS: DAVID BOSSIE: Soros' radical agenda: Here's how far his power and influence extend

Billionaire left-wing philanthropist George Soros has been back in the news lately.  This time it pertains to questions about the 92-year-old Democrat mega-donor’s connection to Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg. 

In the wake of Bragg’s openly political indictment of former President Donald Trump, Soros has been scrutinized for a $1 million contribution he made to a group that spent significant resources in support of Bragg’s candidacy.

While Soros didn’t donate to Democrat Bragg’s campaign directly, tweets and statements in defense of his actions have raised eyebrows and rekindled a debate that’s been on everyone’s mind in the political world for a very long time. How much sway does Soros have with Democrats at all levels of government?

For the past two decades, Soros has been an extremely influential benefactor of liberal candidates and causes. But these days, questions about his true reach extend far beyond the man himself to organizations and family members that push the same radical agenda.

When Soros tweeted, "While I didn’t contribute to Alvin Bragg’s campaign, I have supported many other reform-minded prosecutors…," it struck many as disingenuous because his son and daughter-in-law both contributed over $10,000 each to Bragg’s campaign directly.

So, when Soros’ spokesperson added, "George Soros and Alvin Bragg have never met in person or spoken by telephone, email, Zoom, etc… There has been no contact between the two," questions should have been asked about whether Bragg or Bragg’s staff had any contacts with any Soros family members or representatives of any of the advocacy groups under their control.

Once again, the uncurious mainstream media failed to drill down in search of the whole truth, perhaps intentionally.

According to the Soros-founded Open Society Foundations’ website, "George Soros… has given over $32 billion to fund the Open Society Foundations, which work in over 120 countries around the world." Even by today’s standards, that is extraordinary largesse.

In calendar year 2021 alone, Open Society Foundations spent $401 million on programs in the United States, and it’s noteworthy that the group’s U.S. activity has skyrocketed in recent years. In 2016 by contrast, the group "only" spent $162 million in America.

So, on the charitable side, evidence suggests that the Soros’ influence over U.S. public policy is on the rise. On the political side, similar trends are apparent. A recent Washington Post article entitled, "Meet the mega-donors pumping millions into the 2022 midterms," ranked Soros number one on the list with $128.5 million in contributions in support of Democrat candidates.

Soros’ massive financial support for left-wing candidates has opened doors in Washington at the highest levels of government. According to the New York Post, Alexander Soros "scored at least a dozen meetings with White House officials in 2022, according to recently updated White House visitor logs." Additionally, Tom Perriello, the executive director of an arm of Open Society Foundations, also visited the Biden White House multiple times in recent years.

When it comes to Biden policy and Soros policy, it’s tough to tell where one ends and the other begins.

According to Open Society Foundations’ website, on the issue of voting rights, "politics in the United States have been marked by partisan assaults on voting rights."

On immigration, the group says they "support a range of groups that work on immigration issues, from local and state organizations that provide frontline legal advice, to individuals seeking asylum or facing deportation."

On criminal justice reform, Open Society Foundations "advocate for an approach to policing that emphasizes community engagement and accountability, particularly for the use of force."

And on climate issues, Soros recently tweeted, "Climate change is an existential threat to our civilization."

If any of these statements were attributed to Joe Biden instead of someone in Soros world, no one would blink.

The problem with these positions is that they are both failed and dishonest. Turnout statistics indicate that Biden’s divisive attacks on voter suppression are a total farce; the Biden administration’s lawless immigration policy has created a war zone and fentanyl epidemic at the border; the left’s drive to "reimagine policing" has caused crime and the feeling of danger to skyrocket in our cities; and the irresponsible push for wasteful spending on the green new deal agenda has caused an inflation crisis that won’t go away.

In addition, the Soros pet project of bankrolling the campaigns of left-wing district attorneys and local prosecutors around the country has been extremely detrimental to the American ideal of law and order. Unsurprisingly, Soros is in complete denial. In fact, if an op-ed he penned on the subject is any indication, he may be more out of touch than President Biden himself.

Soros opined that "reform-minded prosecutors and other law-enforcement officials around the country have been coalescing around an agenda that promises to be more effective and just." It takes just a cursory look at what’s going on in Chicago and so many other cities to realize that nothing could be further from the truth.

But Soros continued his tall tale by saying, "the funds I provide enable sensible reform-minded candidates to receive a hearing from the public. Judging by the results, the public likes what it’s hearing. "This is absurd. Poll after poll say that Americans are very concerned about the rise in crime.

And perhaps most alarmingly, the tone-deaf Soros has indicated he’s planning to continue his assault on safe streets in the future. He boasted in the article that he has "no intention of stopping" his support of radical prosecutors like Kimberly Gardner in St. Louis, Larry Krasner in Philadelphia, and Kim Foxx in Chicago.

If there’s a silver lining in the case of Alvin Bragg’s sham indictment of Donald Trump, maybe it will be the country refocusing on the failed radical agenda of George Soros, his family and their deep-pocketed organizations that are driving the Democrat Party’s dangerous lurch to the left in the areas of crime, illegal immigration, and climate change. It won’t be a moment too soon.

WASHINGTON TIMES: DAVID BOSSIE: Bank records don’t lie: Bidens’ business dealings will be uncovered

President Biden and the Biden family business have a big problem on their hands: Bank records don’t lie. For years now, with the help of the corporate mainstream media, they’ve obfuscated, ducked, denied and dismissed their lucrative influence-peddling operation — hiding in plain sight — as one big outlandish conspiracy theory. But as Congress starts connecting the dots with critical evidence that has eluded the public until now, the old lies no longer hold water.

Even when the treasure trove of evidence on Hunter Biden’s laptop was first reported by the courageous New York Post, the Bidens and their powerful Washington allies perpetuated their big lie, this time with the help of former high-ranking U.S. intelligence officials, Big Tech social media giants, and even the FBI.

And for the first two years of the Biden administration — the least transparent administration in history — the White House was not pressured by the biased liberal media to answer serious questions about any of the corruption allegations swirling around about the Biden family’s business interests in China, Ukraine, Russia and other foreign countries. Even after The New York Times admitted in March 2022 — 18 months late — that the laptop and its contents were authentic, the legacy media continued to assist in the cover-up by keeping the story from “getting legs.”

But now that Republicans are in the majority in the House of Representatives, the American people are finally getting some long-overdue transparency and accountability. As with so many other major issues that the mainstream media has failed to cover adequately for political purposes, such as the origin of COVID-19, Reps. James Comer and Jim Jordan — chairmen of the House Oversight and Judiciary committees — are now in a position to provide a much-needed check on the once-untouchable Biden administration.

Recently, the Committee on Oversight and Accountability disclosed a $3 million wire transfer from a Chinese company by the name of State Energy HK Ltd. — in 2017, about 40 days after Mr. Biden left the vice presidency — that was sent to a Biden family business associate who then disgorged over $1 million to members of the Biden clan. These transactions raise big questions that demand answers from Mr. Biden and other members of his family. House Speaker Kevin McCarthy has indicated that there are 11 more subpoenas for more bank records relating to Biden pay-for-play business deals in the pipeline. So rest assured, this is just the tip of the iceberg.

These initial documents provided to Congress by Bank of America confirm that Joe and Hunter Biden have been lying about the family’s overseas financial entanglements for a very long time. In an interview with ABC News in 2019, Hunter Biden even went as far as to say that the allegations of corruption had “no basis in fact” and that he hadn’t received any money — “not one cent,” as he described it — as a result of his foreign business dealings.

Similarly, in a 2020 debate against then-President Donald Trump, then-candidate Biden told the American people that “I have not taken a penny from any foreign source ever in my life.” But the false statements don’t end there. Don’t forget that Mr. Biden claimed he’s never, ever discussed business with Hunter even though emails and firsthand accounts have contradicted him. He even called a voter in Iowa a “damn liar” for daring to ask about Hunter’s gig with Burisma in Ukraine, and just the other day, the president told a reporter asking a question about the new wire transfer from China that it is “not true,” even though bank records make clear that it is true. It reminds me of the old Bill Clinton approach, “are you going to believe me or your lying eyes?”

To make matters worse, as the biased media remains unwilling to cover the story and turn up the heat on the Biden White House, they’re in a full-blown frenzy covering District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s circus in Manhattan. Radical Democrat Bragg’s partisan drive to indict former Mr. Trump for a minor bookkeeping allegation for which the statute of limitations has expired should be viewed as nothing more than a blatant abuse of power for political purposes. The American people are sick and tired of this un-American double standard and the politicization of our justice system.

Every one of us should want to know if the sitting president of the United States is compromised — even left-wing operatives posing as journalists. But rest assured, by simply following the money like in the case of Richard Nixon and Watergate, House investigators are going to find out whom Mr. Biden answers to one way or another. In the end, the truth will prevail.

DAILY CALLER: DAVID BOSSIE: Step One To Fixing America’s Border Nightmare — Show Mayorkas The Door

The brutal murder of two Americans by the Gulf Cartel crime organization in Mexico is just the latest reminder of the decades-long national tragedy that’s playing out at our southern border.

Like Kate Steinle and Mollie Tibbetts before them, Shaeed Woodard and Zindell Brown are dead because of America’s irresponsible “Wild West” open border policies that fail to protect our citizens and defend our national sovereignty. While President Joe Biden funds Ukraine’s war against Russia, there’s another war zone right under his nose that his reckless policies have greatly exacerbated.

So the question is, how many more people have to die before someone is held accountable?

It’s been more than 10 years now since Donald Trump started calling out members of both political parties for their tone deaf policies on illegal immigration. The stated positions of both the Obama-Biden administration and scores of establishment Republicans at the time was to simply reward illegal behavior with blanket amnesty and ignore security, drug and crime concerns.

During his term in office, President Trump did a lot of positive things to secure our border — including getting large portions of border wall built — even in the face of constant resistance from the uni-party in Washington, D.C. But that all ended with the election of Joe Biden and his decision to make Alejandro Mayorkas Homeland Security Secretary.

On the campaign trail, candidate Biden telegraphed to would-be illegal immigrants and drug cartels what his open border policy would look like and on day one he made good on his promise. Now, we’re in the midst of a crisis the likes of which we’ve never seen.

If you’ve come to the conclusion that Secretary Mayorkas was installed in his lofty position to manage the invasion of our country, you’re not wrong.

He regularly lies to Congress and the American people, and in the process has allowed a fentanyl epidemic to sweep the nation. There were over 100,000 drug overdose deaths in America in the last calendar year and yet the Biden White House says with a straight face that fentanyl trafficking is at “historic lows.” This Orwellian doublespeak is completely unacceptable — but the corporate media is out to lunch.

At a recent hearing on the border crisis, Congressman Clay Higgins — a former sheriff’s captain — said of Secretary Mayorkas, “if I could arrest you for violations of Louisiana revised statutes, I would.” Rep. Higgins is exactly right and is simply saying out loud what millions of common sense Americans are thinking.

While Congress doesn’t have the power to arrest someone, they do possess the power to impeach executive branch officials for high crimes and misdemeanors — and that’s exactly what needs to happen in the case of Secretary Mayorkas.

The crime scene at the U.S.-Mexico border must be addressed with a sense of urgency because what’s taking place there right now must never become the new normal. That’s why before Congress leaves for August recess, they should lay out the mountain of evidence against Secretary Mayorkas and vote to remove him from office.

House Republicans must make the Mayorkas impeachment vote a referendum on Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris’ horrific open border policies. It’s a vote that says no to lawlessness, drug trafficking, cartels, murder, sanctuary cities, illegal immigrant voting rights — the entire catastrophe.

For those weak-kneed politicians in the U.S. House — in either party — who may think impeachment is unjustified, make your voice heard and embrace Mayorkas’ disgraceful tenure by voting to allow him to proceed with his invasion unimpeded.

Furthermore, sending articles of impeachment to the U.S. Senate would force battleground state senators to take a position. Do Democrats up for re-election in 2024 support Secretary Mayorkas and his deadly invasion or not?

The American people deserve a national debate on the open border disaster that’s crippling our country and Mayorkas’ impeachment can serve as the vehicle.

The Mexican crime cartel responsible for the recent murder of Americans issued a handwritten letter of apology for a reason. They’re concerned that the American government is finally going to get smart, secure the border and help put them out of business once and for all.

It’s time to make their nightmare a reality and it starts with showing Mayorkas the door.
