From everything we’ve seen over the last nine months, it’s hard to believe Joe Biden is really running his administration.
A former moderate, Biden’s policies seem to have come out of the radical left’s playbook. On top of that, old Joe often seems tired, confused, and uninterested in the very thing he’s talking about. Then, we have to worry about comments he often makes about not being “allowed” to do this or that.
Many Americans have noticed all of this and are asking questions. But on Capitol Hill, few leaders have called out this odd behavior. But now, at least one Republican senator brought up this issue, during a sworn hearing.
[Senator James] Risch referred to a situation from the day prior when the White House appeared to cut off the feed of Biden at an event once the president started asking questions…
”One of the things we need to get to the bottom to is who is responsible for this? Who made the decisions?” Risch said. “[Biden] can’t even speak without someone in the White House censoring it or signing off on it.”

Up until now, comments about who was really running the White House were just rhetoric on the news. But Risch brought up the troubling situation, under oath, during a congressional hearing. It’s getting harder and harder for the administration to ignore or deny questions about who is in charge.
And they are doing a very poor job addressing them. When the White House hides Biden for months from the press, refuses to let him take questions, and literally cuts off his audio and video to avoid embarrassment, you have to wonder what is going on.
Secretary of State Blinken refused to fess up to what is really happening. But, as usual, he made a guarded and unclear response to Risch’s questioning saying, “Ultimately, the president makes the decisions.” Uh… that “ultimately” seems odd. Does that suggest other people are telling him what to do but Biden “ultimately” says, “Yes, I’ll do what you say?” Blinken’s answer seems to almost confirm our suspicions.
Risch went on to say, “Somebody in the White House has authority to press the button and stop the president, cut off the president’s speaking ability and sound. Who is that person?”
We are obviously not getting the answers we need. Biden’s administration continues to lie and hide the facts from the American public. Meanwhile, it’s becoming painfully obvious Joe is unfit to lead and is being told what to do by someone else.
That raises even more concerns about his decisions, policies, and legislative agenda. If Joe’s not the one in charge, who is? Perhaps it’s not one person, but a group of leftists, lobbyists, and international leaders.
Regardless of the case, we need major change in D.C. to fix it.
