Joe Biden is the 46th President of the United States after his inauguration on 20 January 2021, and formerly was the 47th Vice President of the United States from 2009 to 2017. In a 22-minute address after he was sworn in 11 minutes early by Chief Justice John G. Roberts, President Biden drew a sharp contrast between his presidency and the preceding four years, saying:

"My whole soul is in this. I'll keep everything I do in your service, thinking not of power but of possibilities, not of personal injuries but the public good."

President Biden did not mention Donald Trump by name but wove a thread of contrast through his speech. He denounced "lies told for power and for profit," said "there are truth and there are lies," acknowledged the bitter divisions in the country as an "uncivil war," and referred to the MAGA mob which rioted in the place he spoke just two weeks ago, saying: "Democracy prevailed."[1]

Family Corruption

His son Hunter Biden and other family members are conduits for large amounts of slush money, of which Joe apparently takes half. In a leaked text message, Hunter wrote his daughter Naomi: “But I don’t receive any respect and that’s fine I guess.[..] It’s really hard, but don’t worry, unlike Pop (Joe Biden) I won’t make you give me half your salary.”[2]

Policies

Iraq War Supporter

Biden publicly supported a war against Iraq both before, during, and after the 2002 invasion. During a 1998 Senate hearing with weapons-inspector whistleblower Scott Ritter, a hostile Biden said "that the only way, the only way we’re going to get rid of Saddam Hussein is we’re going to end up having to start it alone — start it alone — and it’s going to require guys like you in uniform to be back on foot in the desert taking this son of a — taking Saddam down...You know it and I know it.”[3] In 2002, he was among the 77 senators who authorised then-president George W. Bush's use of military force in Iraq.

Four months after the American attack, he staunchly defended the invasion to a roomful of foreign policy experts at the Brookings Institution in Washington. “Nine months ago, I voted with my colleagues to give the President of the United States of America the authority to use force, and I would vote that way again today,” Biden said on July 31, 2003. “It was a right vote then, and it’d be a correct vote today.”[4][5]

Biden co-authored (with Leslie Gelb) a 2006 divide-and-rule plan to segregate Iraq into three ethno-religious statelets — Arab Shias, Arab Sunnis, and Kurds.[6]

When he was vice-president, Biden contributed to the war propaganda against Libya and Syria[citation needed].

Prison-Industrial Complex

Biden supported the 1994 Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act, known as the "1994 Crime Bill".[7][8] [9]

The 1994 Crime Bill encouraged states to adopt 'three-strikes' rules that mandated life sentences for repeat-offenders as well as 'truth in sentencing' laws that required inmates to serve at least 85 percent of their sentences. It also withdrew federal funding for inmates enrolling in higher education while incarcerated. [10]

Especially due to the "three-strikes" rule, the bill is seen as having contributed to a large increase in mass incarceration, to the great profit of the prison-industrial complex, while keeping the black population politically down in a circle of violence, a continuation of COINTELPRO instigation of gang violence and Cocaine-Contras policies.[11]

Patriot Act

Joe Biden has repeatedly claimed that a Bill he wrote in 1994 was essentially the same as the 2001 Patriot Act.[12] "I drafted a terrorism bill after the Oklahoma City bombing," Biden said, "I introduced the terrorism bill in '94 that had a lot of these things in it."[13]

War against Yugoslavia

During the wars in Yugoslavia, he campaigned for the arming of Bosnian Muslims and supported the action of Osama bin Laden’s Arab Legion as well as that of Saudi and Iranian troops[14]. With his friend Republican Senator John McCain, he pushed President Bill Clinton to intervene in Kosovo.

September 11, 2001

Senator Joe Biden, as Chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee met with Pakistani General Mahmood Ahmed on the day after September 11, 2001. This is the same General Ahmed who transferred $100K to alleged 9/11 hijacker Mohammed Atta, as well as instructed Omar Saeed Sheikh.[15]

COVID-19 Policies

As part of his campaign promises, Biden said that as president he would require wearing face coverings in public mandatory in the US[16] .Michael Osterholm, a member of Biden's 12 person Covid advisor team, wants a U.S. lockdown of 4 to 6 weeks[17], a position denied by a Biden official as "not in line with the president-elect’s thinking.”[18]

"Nothing would fundamentally change"

In a 2019 fundraiser with rich donors, he promised "no one’s standard of living will change, nothing would fundamentally change." if he is elected. Talking to the New York (including Wall Street) crowd, he said “I mean, we may not want to demonize anybody who has made money". Biden went on to say that the rich should not be blamed for income inequality, pleading to the donors, “I need you very badly.”[19]

In late November 2020, without the public announcements that accompanied the president-elect’s cabinet picks, Team Biden added to its agency review groups several picks from big corporations, including Monica Maher, vice president for cyber threat intelligence at Goldman Sachs; Eric Goldstein, an 18-year Goldman Sachs veteran; and Josh Zoffer, a former engagement manager at McKinsey who now works at private equity firm Cove Hill Partners. Biden’s transition also “quietly added four Facebook and Google employees to its agency review teams".[20]

In a January 2020 interview, Biden claimed there is already a "significant representation of progressives in our administration"[21] The progressive wing in the party responded with incredulous indignation to the claim, like Bernie Sanders, who said that given the significant role the progressive movement played in Biden’s victory, “the progressive movement deserves a number of seats—important seats—in the Biden administration - Have I seen that at this point? I have not”.[22]

The return to normal also means a return of the Council on Foreign Relations This is the case for Anthony Blinken (State), Lloyd Austin (Defense), Alejandro Mayorkas (Homeland Security), William J. Burns (CIA Director), Janet Yellen (Treasury), Linda Thomas-Greenfield (Ambassador to the UN), Gina Raimondo (Commerce), Cecilia Rouse (Chair of the Council of Economic Advisors), John Kerry (Special Envoy for Climate), and even Tom Vilsack (Agriculture).[23]

Friend of Hollywood

Biden is also a big supporter of the Hollywood-led ever expanding copyright racket. Kim Dotcom, founder of New Zealand based MEGA site, said “I do know from a credible source that it was Joe Biden, the best friend of former Senator and MPAA boss Chris Dodd, who ordered his former lawyer and now state attorney Neil MacBride to take Megaupload down"[24], after a meeting with Hollywood tycoons. The Motion Picture Association also spent money lobbying the office of Vice President Joe Biden.[25]

2020 Presidential Election

CNN counts more than 50 executive orders, actions and memorandums by mid February 2021.[26]
Full article: US/2020 Presidential election

After winning a campaign a large percentage of the American voters believed[citation needed] was rigged in his favor, many analysts dismissed his physical and mental abilities and predicted that "Biden’s VP Pick Will Be President. Biden Is Just A Placeholder."[27]

Health Issues

In connection with the 2020 Presidential Campaign, where Biden would be the oldest candidate ever, Dr. Kevin O’Connor of the George Washington University released a medical summary[28][29],at Biden's the request, in which he described Biden as a “healthy, vigorous, 77-year-old".

Biden's uncertain health status gave rise to several internet memes, including this comparison to 1980s comedy "Weekend at Bernie's"

During the campaign, critics frequently pointed out Biden showing signs of cognitive decline, including an inability to hold on to his own train of thought, forgetting where he is and who he’s with, grossly incorrect use of language, and inappropriate behaviour[30]. Democrats scramble to defend this as "a stutter", while Trump nicknamed him 'Sleepy Joe').

Biden survived two brain aneurysms in the late 1980s. The condition was later complicated by subsequent deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism. After the second aneurysm was surgically repaired in May 1988, Biden's recuperation kept him away from the Senate for seven months.[31]

During a live TV debate during the 2020 campaign, Biden's left eye began to go dark red in colour and fill with blood. It is thought the cause of Biden's scare was a broken blood vessel in the eye, which can be caused by high blood pressure or straining.[32]

Other Corruption

His brother James joined a company called Hillstone International in 2010. At that point, Joe had been Vice President for two years. And as luck would have it, in 2011 Hillstone won the bid for a 1.5 billion project in Iraq. The company was supposed to build 100,000 apartments there. The project failed, practically nothing was built, but unfortunately the money was gone[33].

Rape allegations

Joe Biden has been accused by Tara Reade of rape that has happened in 1993.[34][35]

User clips of Biden on C-Span

C-Span allows for users to create shorter clips of uploaded videos.[36][37] It appears that many videos that show Biden inappropriately touching children are getting deleted soon after creation in the 2020 election year.[38] The issue in general has also been part of mainstream news reporting since mid 2019,[39] after it was reported about in alternative media for years.[40] It came up again in September 2020 when Twitter flagged the footage as; "child sexual exploitation", despite originating from and being hosted at C-Span.[41]

“Some will think “Oh, they are protecting Biden — they don’t want the public to see how he acts.”

Who knows? I just know that what he is doing is wrong and signifies a crude, animalistic expression of male dominance. He is seeing how far he can go without being stopped. How far can he dominate these Senators? Watching the whole 12 minutes of these swearing-in ceremonies where you can see Biden “doing his thing” and the reactions of family members was difficult, but very instructive.

By the end I thought, “These people won’t even lift a finger to stop him from touching their own innocent children. Why in the hell would anyone think they’d lift a finger to do a thing to help a stranger? Or strangers?”
