The Q nuts are going bonkos.

Lots of garment rending?
I say, put Vivek Ramaswamy into the position for the rest of the year.

Yes, he talks a good talk, so...  give him a job where he has to "walk the walk" and prove himself.

Actually I think he'd do just fine.
The closer: Fourth witness places Biden at center of son’s China, Russia business deals

 By Susan Ferrechio - The Washington Times - Updated: 6:08 p.m. on Monday, February 26, 2024

New jailhouse testimony from a former Biden family business associate details at least two calls between Hunter Biden and his father, then the vice president, about lucrative business deals with China and Russia.

One of the calls puts Mr. Biden in contact with a Russian oligarch and former mayor of Moscow.

Jason Galanis, sentenced to more than 11 years for securities fraud, is the fourth former business associate to put President Biden in the center of Hunter Biden’s enormously profitable business deals as lawmakers investigate him on charges that he helped his family carry out an influence-peddling scheme.

“It’s a tale as old as time. A government official takes action. That action benefits his family. And then, when questions are asked, there’s a cover-up,” House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan, Ohio Republican, said Monday.

Galanis told House lawmakers in a jailhouse statement obtained by The Washington Times that Mr. Biden participated in a May 4, 2014, call with Yelena Baturina, a wealthy Russian real estate investor seeking a financial foothold in the United States.

Hunter Biden rang his father on speakerphone from a restaurant in Brooklyn, New York, where he met with Ms. Baturina and her husband, a former mayor of Moscow.

Ya know, airports close whenever AF1 is there (FAA Regs).  His crew probably decided Biteme's vacay is way more important than any crimes.
Alabama had better realize:
This could come back to bite conservatives on the rear.

Remember the vote up in Ohio not that long ago, re changing the Constitution and abortion...?

j. myrle claimed:
"SOTU is a required part of the Presidency."

No, it is not.
At least, a "State of the Union SPEECH" is not required.

I believe the requirement is that the president send information to the Congress as to the condition of the country.

For years, this was delivered as a written message. Pretty much "a formality".
The grandstanding "State of the Union speech" came much later.

I'll take a GUESS that ol' white joe's appearance before Congress this time 'round will be a relatively short one -- short speech and then try to find his way back out the door... (will Jill accompany him right up to the podium...?)
That's a violation of the UCMJ.   

Yup!  Wanton destruction of "Military Property."  (Not the clothes, the person we spent a lot of money to train.)
Joe Biden Lobbies to Preserve Border Program Used by Laken Riley’s Accused Illegal Alien Killer: ‘Let’s Get It Done’

John Binder 26 Feb 2024

President Joe Biden is asking Congress to pass a Senate bill to preserve a program at the United States-Mexico border that the illegal alien charged with murdering 22-year-old Laken Riley used to get into the United States.

This week, Biden sent out a series of statements aimed at members of Congress — calling on the House and Senate to approve legislation crafted by Sens. James Lankford (R-OK), Kyrsten Sinema (I-AZ), and Chris Murphy (D-CT) that fizzled out following backlash.

“Months ago, I instructed my team to begin working with bipartisan lawmakers to fix our immigration system,” Biden wrote on Twitter. “They did a hell of a job, and together, we put forward some of the most fair reforms ever. Speaker Johnson, it’s time to call a vote and send this bill to my desk.”

“Look, our bipartisan border deal is the strongest our country has ever seen,” another post from Biden reads. “It includes the most fair and humane reforms for legal immigration – and a vast majority of Congress supports it. Let’s get it done.”

The bill, among other things, would preserve Biden’s expansive Catch and Release network at the border, including a parole pipeline where thousands of border crossers and illegal aliens are released into American communities every day after securing so-called “humanitarian parole.”

“[The bill authorizes] a clarification of how humanitarian parole is used at the land borders, but NO changes to the President’s ability to bring in vetted, sponsored migrants through the program known as CNHV (Cuba, Nicaragua, Haiti, and Venezuela parole),” Murphy wrote of the bill.

Biden’s lobbying for the parole pipeline comes just as Laken Riley, a nursing student at Augusta University, was murdered allegedly by an illegal alien who was released into the United States interior thanks to the parole pipeline put in place by the administration.

A White House spokesperson issued a statement offering condolences to Riley’s family but failed to mention that the illegal alien suspect was in the United States with the help of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS):

    We would like to extend our deepest condolences to the family and loved ones of Laken Hope Riley. People should be held accountable to the fullest extent of the law if they are found to be guilty. Given this is an active case, we would have to refer you to state law enforcement and [Immigration and Customs Enforcement].
