Joe Biden is facing a crisis of competence 1

Joe Biden is facing a crisis of competence

President Joe Biden tried to build a narrative around competency based on his history in public service during the 2020 campaign, but his first term has been complicated by several issues that call that campaign promise into question. In the latest episode of The Point, CNN’s Chris Cillizza examines how Biden’s handling of Covid-19, Afghanistan and other policies have weakened the President’s approval.

    1. @your name it’s exhausting these are the posts these are the ppl. The nick names the fake news the cia the fbi antifa it’s just exhausting. God bless ya but sweet lord go out find happiness who cares about trump it’s over move on

    2. @Leah Gary they don’t care that’s what they do all day every day I see these on music posts everything is politics and conspiracy theories

    3. @Regulatory Affairs why because they called you out on info that’s not proven. But you guys live in conspiracy so I get it.

  1. It’s funny that THIS is what the media decides to critique Biden for. At least most people are calling them out on it.

    1. @Noé André you don’t know how ECONOMICS work…
      So let me help…in the SIMPLEST way…
      Inflation is the decline of purchasing power of a given currency over time. … The rise in the general level of prices, often expressed as a percentage, means that a unit of currency effectively buys less than it did in prior periods….
      So basically…What best describes why inflation occurs? increased money supply, relative to the supply of goods and services…more people are working…more things are happening… production was Slow because of RECESSION. . so now… Corporations…are just raising the cost of things because there’s more people DOING THINGS…
      Healthy Inflation
      Moderate inflation of around 3-7% is actually good for economic growth. When consumers expect prices to rise, they are more likely to buy now rather than wait..
      We’re currently at 5.2% inflation that’s not bad..as long as we don’t end up in a war..or run out of things…then prices will skyrocket..
      DEMOCRATs passed the infrastructure bill…that’s going to create MILLIONS of jobs…union jobs…those are decent wage jobs..
      943,000 jobs were added in the month of July, and the unemployment rate was 5.4 percent, down from 5.9 percent in June..more people are working..more jobs are coming .. Corporations had a year off last year because of COVID .. everything slowed down.. everything is picking back up..
      Supply..
      Demand
      ECONOMICS..
      If I have to educate you again honey..
      I’ll charge you a tuition fee

    2. @lou k did you even THINK about your comment prior to making it??
      You said
      “Biden pulled troops out instead of US citizens”….
      When did TROOPS stop being US CITIZENS??
      Biden TOLD the US civilians to EVACUATE MONTHS ago…the flights for AMERICAN civilians were covered…they could have LEFT AT ANY TIME…the military leaves on their OWN…Biden sent 3000 troops to AID in the evacuation of Americans…the CITIZENS of Afghanistan want to leave too…so THEY are the biggest issue at the airport..not the Taliban right now.. Because Biden made it clear ..if they don’t let AMERICA evacuate in peace he will retaliate Immediately..just like he did in March with the airstrike in Syria..he postponed the airstrike to let Syrian CIVILIANS leave..the Taliban. hasn’t killed any AMERICANS and hopefully they don’t .they’re letting the troops evacuate People…the PEOPLE of Afghanistan are now protesting the Taliban.. and talking a stand Biden is pulling us out of the mess…that we don’t have no parts in and Should not have been involved with anyway.. AFGHANISTAN does not belong to AMERICA
      keep in mind A REPUBLICAN put us in this mess to begin with

    3. @lou k lol, you mean the airbase they just turned over to the Afghan Army? Yeah, that’s what going to make sense.
      “US: Psych!! Ahaha, we know we are supposed to be leaving and that the number of people we are needing to evacuate is just a 1000 or so but we were having so much we decided to move back in….would you all just leave please? We’d like our place back? Who them? Just a small expeditionary force of 10, 000plus all the equipment, weaponry, structures, and technology we need. Oh, and all the water, fuel and other supplies as well.
      AA: WTF? We haven’t even had a chance to move in yet!
      US: Well that’s perfect then!!
      AA: How long will you be staying?
      US: Well in the time it’s taken us to show up again, send in all the stuff and get it ready for deployment, we could have had everyone e out in less than 1/4 of that time so, no more than a couple of months….tops! Unless we find some other reason to stay. You understand, its America….we do what we want, when we want, how we want, where we want…its called empire building and no, we don’t care that everyone will hate us, we’ve guaranteed they will be our enemy, we will change nothing as far as the outcome except guarantee you’ll be friends with China, the last thing our politicians want!!”
      You are a idiot and have just guaranteed we lose even worse than we already have. Good job skippy! Anything else you want to desrroy?

    4. @Bernardo Guerra Arthur I know and you’re right. Thank you for that reminder, it is to easy to forget that it’s a losing battle to try and explain something that makes sense to most people. Have a great day, im glad it’s almost over.

    5. @Joseph P HoldmeupJill why are you commenting? It’s all illogical and childish drivel? I could have more intelligent conversations with rocks and guaranteed they would be closer to correct than you’ll ever be.

  2. I like how the Afghanistan coverage is in a past tense, as if that isn’t a current situation to be covered still.

    1. THAT’S WHY THEY’RE STILL TALKING ABOUT IT ON REAL AMERICAN CABLE-SATELLITE T.V!! THEY JUST SHOWED THE DEFENSE DEPARTMENTS LATEST NEWS BRIEFING LIVE!!

    2. Riddle me this, Batman.

      This press conference may make sense now given Andrew Twiggy Forrest mines graphene…
      https://youtu.be/x4a05hvrQfc All roads lead back to graphene.

      As we already know, graphene is a super conductor.

      As Dr Jane Ruby stated on the Stew Peters Show, the blood of a vaccinated person under microscope showed the red blood cells strangely ‘light up’ due to the inclusion of graphene in the vaccines.

      https://ugetube.com/watch/what-covid-injections-do-to-your-blood-2021-07-16-dr-jane-ruby-stew-peters-video_WHWo5YWPOYBZm2H.html?__cf_chl_jschl_tk__=pmd_f0b12ea2247efeb48e24854a2d74b300c5c7d47b-1628756847-0-gqNtZGzNAqKjcnBszQfi

      Then I found an article on an experiment done at none other than the University of California, which just so happens to include one Professor Robert (Bob) Hunt, who by pure coincidence is Australian Health Minister Greg Hunt’s brother and who receives funding through a foundation called The Hunt Lab, as does his other brother Professor John Hunt at the University of NSW. UNSW has coincidentally received millions in grants from Greg Hunt and the Federal Government.

      UCI ‘grant funded’ experiments discovered they could remote control the heartbeat of a mouse, speeding it up or down remotely by way of graphene. https://www.photonics.com/Articles/Graphene_Biointerface_Optically_Controls_Heart/a63489

      https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/26960413/

      So then I look up what could ‘light up’ or ‘activate’ graphene in respect to ‘light robotics’ and I found an existing remote control technology called LiDAR – https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lidar that, like graphene, has many applications.

      One of the applications of this LiDAR technology includes drones, just like the ones they have in Sydney right now – https://nationaldrones.com.au/drone-services/inspections/lidar/

      https://spheredrones.com.au/collections/lidar?gclid=EAIaIQobChMI3YDxiISr8gIVDRsrCh0Pdwq9EAAYAiAAEgLLKPD_BwE

      This LiDAR technology is also already in our mobile phones, pulsing out silent and unseen messages –

      https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.cnet.com/google-amp/news/lidar-is-one-of-the-iphone-ipad-coolest-tricks-its-only-getting-better/

      Lidar is also currently implemented in medical equipment in hospital and various therapies –

      https://3dheals.com/clinical-applications-of-medical-modeling-part-2-3d-scanning

      And just look at all the LiDAR companies in Australia – https://www.environmental-expert.com/companies/keyword-lidar-30170/location-australia

      So in a nutshell, my thought are the COVID-19/Delta variant ‘hot-spots’ are being targeted by LiDAR, activating those who have been vaccinated by way of drones, cameras and satellites to induce a variety of health issues including heart attacks, myocarditis, strokes, tremors and more depending on how your body reacts when the graphene is activated. This of course is then labelled a COVID-19/Delta death and they will then move onto the next ‘COVID-19 ravaged’ suburb and continue. This of course may be along with mind-control (Google graphene and mind medicine).

      Google Mind Medicine a ‘foundation’ created by Greg Hunt’s other brother, Peter Hunt and Mind Med, a friend of big pharma.

      And his other brother Steven Hunt is the Director of graphene company Sparc https://sparctechnologies.com.au/about-us/directors-and-management/ and sits on the board of the ‘Graphene Enabled Industry Transformation’. https://arcgrapheneresearchhub.com.au/people/stephen-hunt/

  3. “What did you think of the images of people falling out of that airplane?” – ABC

    “That was 4 days ago.” – Joe Biden

    1. @aurora_occidentalis how would you think that ? Its daytime in Afghanistan while its night here. So he has to speak to whomever in Afghanistan during our night hours. Hes had to take time during the day to converse with different sources about Haiti during the day as well as the border migrants. And all other presidential interests.
      Havent you ever wondered why presidents go into office looking fairly well kept for their ages. But when they come out, theyve grown old and wizened.
      Trump may not have done that because he slept with till noon most every day.

    2. @SNOOP SNOOP COLEMAN #1 you ok? You didn’t forget to take your hormone blockers again, did you? Come-on little slave boy, be a good little girl and take your dem/perv/trans pills or your big daddy joe will send you to Afganastan

    3. So its not our country they want to kill themselves let them but we are not gonna sacrifice US troops to a Civil War that has nothing to do with us and the afghan forces aren’t fighting back so what is the point

  4. The history of Afghanistan was to get the Russians out supplying Pashtuns with weapons. They ended up being the Taliban. Certainly getting out is difficult and messy but hopefully, be over soon.

  5. I would like to know who is advising him, he is not alone in all this they are a team working together .

    1. This is so funny. Ole joe really F up, he dismantled the very program that would of gotten everyone who needed out of Afghanistan out weeks before all this happened. This is beyond inept. TRUMP will be president again. Thank you joe biden and kamala.

    2. @Von Olds Actually, Trump did. He signed the pact with the Taliban in February of 2020. His negotiation was to be out by May 1,2021. There is so much more to this deal 45 made with them that we do not know. True, the withdrawl by Biden was not great in any way, but he is but one piece in this mess. The US military generals have to ultimately advise him and come up with the plan.

    3. @Kris Wingert NOPE INEPT BIDEN IS GOING TO OWN THIS ONE. Under his LEADERSHIP THIS FOOL CREATED SOMETHING WORST THAN ISIS JUST LIKE OBAMA! Ppl know how WEAK JOE BIDEN is THE USA RIGHT NOW LOOKING LIKE THE 70’s under CARTER! I DIDNT KNOW IT WILL BE SOMEONE WORST THAN TRUMP.

    1. @Stare into the sun Ok. How do you even know Biden watches CNN? And don’t be ashamed of your support for Trump, you are not alone.

    2. @Samuel Matheri we’re not watching Fox this is a CNN video so I’m not sure what your point was

  6. Let me get this straight,

    Biden with the stroke of a pen was able to reverse every single Donald Trump/America First, policy. He dismantled energy independence, the border, the economy and more. But, the thing he could not figure out how to do differently was #Afghanistan?

    1. @Barbara Woodward refusing to acknowledge the facts by asking a meaningless question to attempt to virtue signal…….inflation. Higher taxes. Higher gas. Higher groceries. Higher energy. Open border crisis…..thanks liberals

    2. @wgooetrik I guess the democrat propaganda wing have to when the incompetence is so over the top even a moron can see it!

    3. The funny thing is that they first discover it now!!! Maybe that signals something about how bright the journalists at CNN are. 🙂

    4. @DireMerillo Seems it take them 6 to 12 months to get the real news after the facts in most things. Russian troop bounties, Trump photos ops, Fake fire extinguisher stories, Nicolaus Sandman confronting a helpless native american, Wuhan lab is a conspiracy, just a couple!

    1. @L S CNN is propaganda, just like MSNBC and Fox News. If you can’t see that, don’t be so arrogant.

    2. @Belly Dancer Em I’ve seen way to many lies from CNN. If they want to repair their image it will take a lot of truth and effort. I’m open to any news organization who tells the truth.

    1. @Trevor Scott Stop spamming your lies all over troll. Im reporting it all as spam so good luck. CNN is just reporting the situation as it stands and what they say is completely fair pretty much EVERY network around the world is saying the same thing.

    1. Opposing???? It’s his doing. He does everything in his power to divide americans and disrupt the systems we depend on. Is there a single decision he has made that would be seen as an attempt to breach the political divide????

  7. I think it was Gates, an Obama cabinet member who said Joe had been wrong on every foreign policy situation for decades.
    Man did he put a cherry on top of that statement with this clown decision and response in Afghanistan.

    1. What did Gates say about the former guy’s policy since most of the fall out was caused by policies he backed,

    2. Haha and Obama said “never underestimate Joe’s ability f*ck things up.” Yet these news anchors are acting surprised

  8. Biden’s reponse: “Look, let me be clear, start over. Here’s the deal. Never had Taliban always is. It’s the thing. We knew this.”

  9. Seems like only few weeks ago that Joe was the darling of CNN. I won’t ever forget how they were drooling over him, or how my comments would mysteriously disappear if I said anything negative about him.

  10. It took a total disaster to convince some that Biden was incompetent. That’s funny, I knew it all along.

  11. ANY *VARIANTS* THAT SHOWS UP ARE A DIRECT RESULT OF THE *VACCINATED* PRODUCING AND DISTRIBUTING THEM TO THE GENERAL POPULATION…
