Former Vice President Joe Biden has campaigned on and promises to be a President that will work across party lines and be a ‘Uniter’ not a ‘divider.’ But the divide is exactly what he did when speaking on Thursday from his hometown of Wilmington, Delaware; far, far away from the issues taking place in Washington, D.C.
Biden, along with many Republican leaders, condemned the mob overtaking of the U.S. Capitol. However, he also further incited the flame amongst his followers that this is a racial issue. Saying the attack was one of the “darkest days in the history of our nation,” Biden lamented “I wish we could say we couldn’t see it coming. But that wasn’t true. We could see it coming.”
“No one can tell me that if it had been a group of Black Lives Matter protesting yesterday there wouldn’t – they wouldn’t have been treated very, very different than the mob of thugs that stormed the Capitol…we all know that is true, and it is unacceptable. Totally unacceptable” said Biden.
What is unacceptable, is for the president-elect to embolden racial tension instead of looking at the facts. BLM rioters and “allies” set up bricks prior to protests to be used to cause harm and destruction. There was zero ambiguity that a goal was complete and utter devastation; of private property, government property and small businesses, literally destroying lives and livelihoods for months on end.
So yes, a photo that Biden’s granddaughter sent him “of police in full military gear lining the steps of the Lincoln Memorial during a Black Lives Matter protest last year” was the appropriate precaution to take against a movement that had proven itself time and time again, in city upon city, to turn deadly.
Nonetheless, Biden helped feed the liberals’ racial and divisive narrative by claiming, “they weren’t protesters. Don’t dare call them protesters. They were a riotous mob. Insurrectionists. Domestic terrorists. It’s that simple.” Those are big and pointed words coming from a man who refused to condemn any of the riotous mob, insurrectionists and Domestic terrorists from earlier this year until polls showed his silence could hurt his electability.
BIDEN: We Can Stay Home During COVID Because “Some Black Woman” Stacked the Grocery Shelf
Biden was quickly roasted on Twitter for his comments
President Trump has proven he is the embodiment of a true leader after contracting the coronavirus while performing the duties of Commander in Chief, instead of keeping himself isolated in a bubble in the White House.
Vice President Joe Biden, on the other hand, has locked himself in his basement for months, leaving for mostly brief media appearances where he rarely takes questions from the press.
In a now-viral video clip, Biden credited people’s ability to stay sequestered in their homes during the COVID-19 pandemic because “some black woman was able to stack the grocery shelf.”
Why would Twitter delete a video that was nothing more than quoting a presidential candidate, @jack?

Fox News reported the full version of Biden’s comments:
“And they say, ‘Well, why in the hell would you say that Biden? You just talked about all these difficulties.’ Well, I’ll tell you why. Because the American public, the blinders have been taken off,” Biden told the roundtable attendees. “They’ve all of a sudden seen a hell of a lot clearer. They’re saying, ‘Jeeze, the reason I was able to stay sequestered in my home is because some Black woman was able to stack the grocery shelf. Or a young Hispanic is out there, these dreamers are out there, 60,000 of them acting as first responders and nurses and docs.’ Or all of a sudden people are realizing, ‘My Lord, these people have done so much. Not just Black, White, across the board, have done so much for me. We can do this. We can get things done.’ And I think they’re ready.”
Biden was quickly roasted on Twitter for his comments, with former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee pointing out the hypocrisy of the media for ignoring his comments. “He didn’t really say that, did he?” he wrote. “Yes, he did. If @realDonaldTrump said that he’d be called racist. But @POTUS didn’t say it. Joe did & the media won’t say a word about it.”

Biden’s Transition Co-Chair Hosted Hunter Biden-Linked Chinese Group at Obama White House
The Chinese Entrepreneur Club (CEC) has years of chummy history with Biden
The Chinese Entrepreneur Club (CEC), also referred to as the “richest club” in the People’s Republic of China has years of chummy history with Biden. Emails published this week by Peter Schweizer of Breitbart News and president of the Government Accountability Institute identify a clear role Hunter Biden and his business associate Devon Archer played in getting the Chinese group into the White House, first in 2011.
November of 2011, then-deputy director of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Jeff Zients hosted the Chinese group after “a colleague of Archer’s reached out to suggest there was an opportunity to gain ‘outstanding new clients” reports Breitbart. According to the email, Archer was told the CEC group was unable to secure meetings with high-ranking Obama administration officials during their November trip to D.C.
Enter Biden associate, Archer to the rescue. “Although it is unclear exactly what transpired after the emails reached Archer, only nine days later, on November 14, 2011, the CEC had secured its meeting at the Obama White House” according to Breitbart. “Administration records indicate that a delegation of 30 CEC members received a tour of the White House and met with then-Commerce Secretary John Bryson.”
That’s not all. According to members of the Chinese delegation, they also “met privately with Hunter Biden’s father, then-Vice President Joe Biden.” In 2014, Zients was appointed to lead the National Economic Council under Obama’s administration. Zients held the position until the end of Obama’s presidential term in 2017.
At the time of Zients’ meeting with the CEC, then-vice president Joe Biden was “playing a lead role in the Obama administration’s policy towards Beijing” according to Breitbart. Additionally, “just that past May, Biden had taken part in talks between the U.S. and China on how to improve ‘strategic and economic’ relations.”
“Since leaving office, Zients appears to have kept in close contact with the Bidens. In September, Biden appointed him to co-chair the presidential transition task force, which will be responsible for staffing a potential Biden White House” reports Breitbart.
