Top O’ the Briefing
Happy Tuesday, dear Kruiser Morning Briefing friends. I don’t know who first decided to split the pea but I am forever in his/her debt.
I’ve had it with the Biden water carriers in the mainstream media. OK, I know I am always in various states of “had it” with them but the you-know-what covering the flying monkeys in the mainstream media have been doing since the speech President LOLEightyOneMillion gave in my ancestral homeland Poland last week has been a bit rough even on my cast-iron stomach.
If not forgivable, it is understandable that they’re working so hard to cover for this absolute train wreck of a human being who is polluting the Oval Office. It’s what they do, after all. And, if we’re being honest here, their penchant for bias is what keeps me busy. What’s been happening since Trump won in 2016 is sort of like an accrual of compound interest of awfulness from them though. Now they’re at the point where the worse Biden gets — and that’s accelerating — the more over-the-top they go to pretend that he is a competent, serious statesman who is in complete control.
It looked world-historical, but it was just Old Joe having another senior moment: During a Saturday speech in Warsaw, Joe Biden declared, “For God’s sake, this man cannot remain in power,” referring, of course, to Vladimir Putin. As PJM’s Matt Margolis pointed out, “Bill Kristol actually hailed the remark as a historic call to action on par with Ronald Reagan.” Kristol wasn’t alone: The establishment media erupted in a chorus of hosannas for Old Joe, the newly anointed global statesman, until, that is, several key European leaders made it known that they weren’t at all happy with what Joe said and were glad that his handlers walked it back.
Former CBS News White House correspondent Mark Knoller exulted that Biden’s ill-considered exclamation “tops Reagan’s 1987 ‘tear down this wall’ speech.” On MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Joe Scarborough insisted that even though the White House had denied that the U.S. is seeking regime change in Russia, Biden’s remark was “a good thing.” Scarborough risibly claimed that Dementia Joe was engaging in “psyops,” and that, consequently, Putin would have to “sleep with one eye open.” Never-Trumper and former conservative, or at least former so-called conservative Jennifer Rubin tweeted: “Biden makes a speech akin to those at the Brandenburg Gate by JFK and Reagan. In a square with a crowd. His delivery is quite strong.”
Larry Sabato of the University of Virginia’s Center for Politics gushed even more unashamedly: “Watching #Biden Warsaw speech. Reminds me of JFK’s ‘Ich bin ein Berliner’ (1963) and Reagan’s ‘Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!’ (1987). Masterful. Now give #Zelenskyy more of everything. #StandWithUkraine”
Make it stop.
It’s one thing to participate in the mass leftist delusion that Biden is all there, another completely to gush forth a flood of comparisons to Ronald Reagan. Reagan, of course, was a brilliant orator. Biden is an addled idiot who is rarely aware of the words he’s randomly barfing up. What he said in Warsaw was an off-script gaffe that almost certainly had his handlers and aides scrambling for the Tums.
It wasn’t the move of a gifted statesman and all of the spin in the world isn’t going to make it so. What’s really sad here, is that none of them realize that. We all have eyes. We know what Biden is like.
My latest column is about our ongoing battle with the ever-worsening Biden apologists in the Democrat Media Complex and the way we’re waging it with the help of our VIP subscribers. Yeah, we’re doing a lot of good, REAL journalism, but I’m also doing videos, podcasts, and some columns that have nothing to do with politics. We’re conservatives, we like to have fun. It’s one of the big things that sets us apart from the left.
They’re a bit constipated and anti-fun over there. That’s why I keep trying to get more people to join us.

Everything Isn’t Awful
In Georgia, this elementary school custodian was worried sick about her family back home in Ukraine.
When the students found out, they stayed late one night to decorate the hallways.
This is what happened when she came to school the next morning. pic.twitter.com/Axfw09pDXB
