What Are the Libs Up to Now?
A former Secret Service agent assigned to the Vice President Joe Biden residence claims that the Service often had to protect female agents from him.
Speaking on the condition of anonymity, the agent asserted that, “We had to cancel the VP Christmas get together at the Vice President’s house because Biden would grope all of our wives and girlfriend’s asses.” The annual party was for agents and Navy personnel who were tasked with protecting the Biden family.
“He would mess with every single woman or teen. It was horrible,” the agent said.
According to the source, a Secret Service agent once got suspended for a week in 2009 for shoving Biden after he cupped his girlfriend’s breast while the couple was taking a photo with him. The situation got so heated, the source told Cassandra Fairbanks, that others had to step in to prevent the agent from hitting the then-Vice President.
Additionally, the agent claims that Biden would walk around the VP residence naked at night. “I mean, Stark naked… Weinstein level stuff,” he added.
He said that the men on duty would frequently stand in front of female agents and Navy women that were present “like a damn guardian.” On some occasions, they would make up reasons to get the women away from where he was.
The agent said he was specifically concerned about women in the Navy.
“They weren’t allowed to disobey him at all, but we’d take them away under pretend auspices,” the agent stated.
The official Vice Presidential residence is the Queen Anne style house at One Observatory Circle in Washington, DC, which is located on the northeast grounds of the U.S. Naval Observatory. The property is maintained and cared for by the service branch.
The agent also worked under the Bush administration, and added that Vice President Dick Cheney “never grabbed any butts or breasts.”
The Trump Agenda
President Donald Trump honored a group of nurses at the White House on Wednesday, thanking them for their efforts to fight the coronavirus.
“America’s nurses are waging a war against the invisible enemy,” he said.”They’re fighting on the frontlines of the battle risking their health to save lives of fellow citizens.”
The president signed a proclamation in honor of National Nurses Day and met with six nurses and the presidents of the American Nurses Association and the American Association of Nurse Practitioners.
One reporter questioned whether the president was sending the wrong message to Americans for meeting a group of nurses who were not socially distancing in the Oval Office and were not wearing masks.
“I’m trying to be nice, I’m signing a bill and you criticize us,” Trump replied.
The president turned and looked straight into the camera and said, “Look, here’s a story. There’s not a single thing I can do to satisfy the media, the Democrats, and the fake news.”
Many of the other nurses said they had sufficient supplies. One nurse from New Jersey said she hated news reports of medical shortages because they alarmed medical staff.
“It makes it so much worse for us nurses to work,” she said. “We’re seeing the reality of it, but to hear it on constantly … in reality, I’m not seeing it. I’m in a hot zone right now.”
“You know why? Because they’re fake news, that’s why,” the president replied.
Labor Secretary Eugene Scalia said on Wednesday that the American economy is “well-positioned” to rebound after the coronavirus-related economic shutdowns are lifted across the country.
“As the president said, we are in a war, a war that has drawn on Americans across the country in a way I don’t think we’ve seen since World War II,” Scalia told “America’s Newsroom.”
Scalia credited the United States’ “incredible productive capacity” for winning two world wars, saying the same type of effort is helping the country turn the corner in slowing the spread of coronavirus.
“Not just what we did at the front lines, but you know, Rosie the Riveter. What we did at home and the ingenuity, the creativity, the energy in the private sector,” Scalia said.
Since the virus outbreak gained a foothold in the U.S. about two months ago, forcing a majority of states to shutter nonessential businesses and direct residents to stay at home, 30 million Americans have filed for first-time jobless benefits.
Job losses were concentrated heavily in the leisure and hospitality industry, as bars and restaurants were forced to close. In total, the sector saw 8.6 million job losses, even as businesses tried to compensate with delivery and takeout options.
Scalia said that “somewhere near 90 percent of people who have gone on unemployment said that they expect to return to their jobs.”
“We know that some will be quicker than others. But, we came into this economic downturn very suddenly because of public health measures and that gives me hope that we can come out of it quickly to the very strong economy that we had under the president’s policies just weeks ago.
“I think we are well-positioned,” Scalia added.
In Other News
In a video that has gone viral, police in Lethbridge, Alberta, can be seen converging on, surrounding, with weapons drawn, and handcuffing a woman dressed as a stormtrooper in celebration of May the Fourth after they received multiple “firearms” complaints over the woman’s obviously fake, plastic Star Wars blaster. Video of the arrest shows the woman crying hysterically while her boss tells police, “It’s a plastic gun!”
A “May the Fourth Be With You” promo by Coco Vanilla Galactic Cantina quickly escalated into an alarming situation, owner Bradley Whalen told Lethbridge News Now on Monday.
“We had music playing in the parking lot, we had one of our staff dress up as a stormtrooper kind of waving to people walking up and down the road, we had people stopping by and getting pictures with the stormtrooper, we put a couple of promotions on in the restaurant to entice people to come,” Whalen told the outlet.
One of Whalen’s female employees got into full costume that morning with the plan to promote the restaurant and interact with passersby. One of those potential costumers filmed his interaction with the employee — then ended up catching the stunning police response to the harmless promotional stunt.
“At approximately 11:20 am, three police cruisers arrived and a truck followed shortly after,” LNN reports.
“Police officers had guns drawn, pointed at my employee,” Whalen told LNN. “They were yelling at her to put the gun down so she threw the plastic gun on the ground. At that point in time when I came out, she was on her knees kneeling down on the ground. The police had already checked and seen that the gun was plastic so they already knew that there wasn’t an issue or a risk there.”
Though video shows that the “stormtrooper” indeed dropped her plastic blaster, Walper claims that she “did not comply with the police verbal directions,” only finally complying “after multiple repeated orders given by the police officers.”
“She kept yelling at them that she couldn’t kneel down because, in that stormtrooper costume, you can’t even sit down in it, like it’s impossible to sit down,” the restaurant owner told LNN. “She kept telling them that she couldn’t get down is what she explained to me after we talked to her. It wasn’t a matter of her not wanting to cooperate. She dropped the gun when they told her to and just forcing her, making her get down on the ground after they determined that she wasn’t a risk and that the gun wasn’t even a real gun, it was a plastic Star Wars blaster.”
The video shows the employee getting on her knees, at which point, the officer “pushed the individual down to the ground,” as Walper admitted, and handcuffed her.
“As a result of being pushed to the ground, the employee had a bloodied nose,” LNN reports. “Neither Whalen nor Walper could confirm if she had suffered any other injuries.”
The video captures the employee crying loudly as she is lying on the ground being handcuffed. LNN cites evidence of “blood stains on the concrete.”
