Biden goes to Florida to campaign to veterans, but accidentally misspeaks and references “Harris-Biden” administration

TAMPA, FL – During a campaign stop in the sunshine state on Tuesday, former Vice President and current Democratic Presidential nominee Joe Biden tried to sell his administration to military veterans.

In a live streamed appearance with nearly 200,000 views on Twitter, Biden told U.S. veterans that he would work to expand employment opportunities for not just them but their family members as well, if elected to office.

Biden said:

“It’s so much harder for military spouses to find good jobs and build their careers. We have to change that and we’re working on it. For example, making it easier to carry your professional credentials with you, from one state to another, when your spouse moves.”

He doubled down on that promise by saying that his administration would bring security.

However, it is unclear whether he stumbled or misread a teleprompter when referencing not a “Biden-Harris administration” but rather a “Harris-Biden administration.”

He said:

“The Harris-Biden administration will relaunch that effort and make it easier for military spouses and veterans to have meaningful careers, to ensure teachers know how to support military children in the classroom, and to improve support for caregivers and survivors so much more than we do now.”

Biden bungled the order of the names on the democratic ticket, just days after Senator Kamala Harris made the same misstep while on the campaign trail.

In an appearance streamed live on ABC News and since posted to the Trump Campaign YouTube channel, Harris referenced a “Harris administration together with Joe Biden.”

Her full quote was this:

“As part of our Build Back Better agenda, we will need to make sure you have a president in the White House who actually sees you, who understands your needs, who understands the dignity of your work, and who has your back.

A Harris administration together with Joe Biden as the president of the United States, the Biden-Harris administration will provide access to 100 billion dollars in low-interest loans and investments for minority-business owners.”

The repeated rearranging of the candidates during interviews and speeches has led some to now question who is actually steering the ship for the democratic duo.

In the comment section under the YouTube video, the comments are straight to the point.

A user named Krishna Murthy quoted Winston Churchill, writing:

“A gaffe is when a politician accidentally tells the truth.”

Another poster, Greg Ireland, commented:

“Imagine how many times she’s said ‘Harris Administration’ in private.”

Biden himself has commented in the past on choosing Harris as his running mate because of her ability to step in and “lead on day one.”

This recent verbal placing of Harris at the top of the ticket dovetails with frequent speculation over whether or not Biden is physically capable of the office.

His health has come into question by media outlets on many occasions during his run for the White House.

His past stenographer publicly questioned his physical and mental fitness for the Oval office just last week.

He called Biden “a shell of his former self.” 

In an interview with Fox News’ Laura Ingraham, longtime stenographer Mike McCormick said that Biden’s public speaking abilities have deteriorated since he left office. 

McCormick said the changes are so significant that he’s “not the same Joe Biden” and described him as a “different guy” than the man he worked with four years ago. 

The Biden campaign has tried to combat the controversy by releasing information from his physician dating back to his time in D.C. 

In that statement, Dr. Kevin O’Connor said: 

“Vice President Biden is a healthy, vigorous 77-year-old male, who is fit to successfully execute the duties of the presidency, to include those as chief executive, head of state and commander in chief.” 

Law Enforcement today reported on the exchange last week, and you can read the full story here.

The Biden campaign has not commented on the most recent slip of the tongue at Tuesday’s campaign appearance in Tampa.

Biden calls for more gun control after deputies ambushed by criminal who didn’t care about laws

LOS ANGELES, CA –By all accounts, a lone coward approached two deputies as they sat in their patrol vehicle and opened fire. 

There was no warning, no interaction that we know of between these deputies and the coward. 

Instead of focusing on the criminal and heinous crime he committed, Democratic Presidential Nominee Joe Biden calls for more gun control.

Initially, it appears that, at the very least, Biden seems to be on the right path.  He tweeted:

“This cold-blooded shooting is unconscionable and the perpetrator must be brought to justice.  Violence of any kind is wrong; those who commit it should be caught and punished.  Jill and I are keeping the deputies and their loved ones in our hearts and praying for a full recovery.” 

Then…four hours later, he starts off on attacks on guns:

“26 years ago today, the Senate passed 10-year bans on assault weapons and high-capacity magazines-it was an effort I was proud to champion.  These bans saved lives, and Congress should have never let them expire.  As president, I’ll take on the @NRA. And we’ll ban them once again.”

So, we have officers being violently attacked throughout the United States, eight alone in St Louis, and Biden wants to target gun ownership? 

Not sure if he even looked at the video in which shows the cowardly criminal ambushing the deputies, but, it certainly appears he has some type of handgun, not a long gun.  Not sure what banning long guns would do to prevent that situation.

Biden then tweets:

“Weapons of war have no place in our communities.  We need to ban assault weapons and high-capacity magazines.” 

Now, let us, for a moment, take a look at what President Trump had to say on the matter with his tweet:

“Animals that must be hit hard.”

The President, according to Fox News, calls for a “fast trial” when the criminal is located.  The President also comments that the death penalty should be an option.

The President, while at a campaign event in Las Vegas said:

“He’s [Biden] not strong for law and order and everybody knows that.  When you see a scene like happened just last night in California with the two police people – a woman, a man – shot at stone cold-short range.”

So here we have a presidential hopeful, that, to his credit, says that he and his wife are praying for the fast recovery of the two officers that an unknown person walked up to and shot in cold blood while they were sitting in their marked police vehicle. 

However, when it comes to speaking about how to handle the situation, Biden starts talking about gun control. 

When the President starts talking about this, he calls for the arrest of the suspect.  He did not appear to use the situation as an opportunity to call on some type of campaign issue, unless you think that it equates to his law and order stance.

At any rate, the attention should be focused on whomever the coward is that, for whatever reason, walked up and shot two people without provocation.  It should be talked about on both sides of the aisle throughout the country, and in some cases, it is. 

However, Biden trying to use the situation to talk about banning long guns is nowhere near what the conversation should be about, especially since the firearm used most certainly was not a long gun.  Especially when there are instances of people protesting the deputies while they are in the hospital.

As far as the two deputies who were shot, they did undergo surgery on September 12th and are listed in critical condition.  Law Enforcement Today wishes them a speedy recovery.

Regarding the person who pulled the trigger, he or she will be found, but as of now, there has been no information released that would indicate that the person has been identified yet.  However, a $100,000 dollar reward has been offered for any information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person responsible.

Reporter: Are you coming for guns? Biden: “Bingo! …if you have an assault weapon.”

March 12, 2020 – DETROIT, MI– In Joe Biden’s latest captured-on-video snafu, he got a little shook-up when engaging with a Detroit, Michigan plant worker over his stance on guns. During the heated interaction, Biden claimed that he wasn’t coming for people’s guns.

Except that’s exactly what he said that August of 2019, while speaking with Anderson Cooper.

To be fair, he was making reference to “assault weapons,” but that term has become more malleable than a fresh can of Play-Doh.

If Biden has difficulty differentiating between his wife and his sister, do we really want this guy calling the shots on what is and is not an “assault weapon?”

During an interview on August 5th, Anderson Cooper asked Biden:

“So, to gun owners out there who say, well, a Biden administration means they’re going to come for my guns?”

Biden responded with:

“Bingo. You’re right if you have an assault weapon. The fact of the matter is, they should be illegal, period. Look, the Second Amendment doesn’t say you can’t restrict the kinds of weapons people can own. You can’t buy a bazooka. You can’t have a flame thrower.”

Biden’s response went even further to mock those who believe the population should be afforded arms that could protect them against a tyrannical government.

His thoughts are that someone would need an “F-15” or something more powerful to go against our government, citing that an assault weapon couldn’t go toe-to-toe if our government becomes oppressive.

Someone finding jest in the notion of “you couldn’t stop us if you wanted to” is troubling. Why would a presidential hopeful find it clever that the greater populace essentially couldn’t measure up to standing up against possible tyranny in their homeland?

Biden didn’t speak an untruth with regard to what’s available commercially to the public versus what the military and police have access to in terms of weapons.

Still, it’s neither cute nor charming to be flaunting of the fact that one cannot usurp the bigger stick if push comes to shove. That’s rather dangerous rhetoric and causes people to worry one’s agenda and intent.

During the interview with Cooper, Biden was also in favor of smart guns.

We’d covered one of the most idiotic displays showing a Vice News correspondent showing off a “smart gun,” while proving how un-smart the news host was.

A media personality for Vice News recently broke one of the essential rules of gun safety: never let a gun barrel face anything that you are not willing to destroy.

While doing a piece on “smart guns,” the reporter pointed a weapon at his own cameraman and pulled the trigger.

While the “smart gun” worked as it was intended to, that had to be one of the most flagrantly dangerous manners to handle and treat a firearm, and further exposed the ignorance of people who are trying to ban guns altogether.

For those unfamiliar with what a “smart gun” is, it’s a firearm devised in a way that is intended to only discharge a bullet under certain circumstances. Often called the personalized-gun, most employ technology like RFID chips that function as proximity tokens. What those proximity tokens are meant to do is render a weapon useless unless the proper token is held by the person firing the weapon.

Employing technology into guns would obviously help to cut down on negligent accidents – except there are still several well-stated liability concerns.

Still, that didn’t stop this Vice News journalist and host from pointing a loaded weapon at one of his crewmembers and pulling the trigger.

While the motivations behind the creation and prototypes of “smart guns” are noble, since they aim to decrease accidental shootings, the data isn’t out yet on how reliable they actually are.

Furthermore, while they’re aimed to deter accidental shootings, there’s nothing “accidental” about pointing a gun at someone and firing it intentionally. Had anything remotely failed, then that cameraman would’ve either been dead or seriously maimed by the blatant display of idiocy.

Former Marine turned writer, Julio Rosas, posted a clip on Twitter showcasing the demonstrably dangerous maneuver of pointing a weapon at a camera man and pulling the trigger:

“Still can’t get over that a Vice reporter, in a video on “smart guns” helping prevent accidental shootings, decided to it was a good idea to point a Thompson, that had a drug mag in, at his cameraman, pull the trigger, and then say, “I didn’t think it was going to do that.””

No matter what safety measures are present on a firearm, that doesn’t mean someone should be frivolous with regarding the four essential rules of firearm safety. The rules are:

  1. Treat all guns as if they are always loaded
  2. Never let the muzzle cover anything that you are not willing to destroy
  3. Keep your finger off the trigger until your sights are on target and you have made the decision to shoot
  4. Be sure of your target and what is behind it and always secure your guns from unauthorized persons

The fact that the reporter essentially disregarded nearly all aspects of firearm safety is completely irresponsible. There are countless instances where people assumed the “safety” was “on” which then results in an accidental shootings.

“Smart gun” technology is nothing more than an elaborate “safety” feature, and vesting so much trust in that feature to point a loaded weapon and fire at someone is an example of a person who should never handle a weapon.

Even the technology publication TechCrunch is extremely skeptical of the effectiveness of these “smart guns”. Journalist Jon Stokes stated the dangers of adding smart-technology to a firearm:

“Whenever you attach software to some new category of things — especially software that has any kind of connection to the outside world, whether via RFID or an actual network — then in addition to whatever problems that thing had before, you’ve introduced a whole host of brand new security and identity problems.”

According to the CDC, there are approximately 487 unintentional gun deaths per year in the United States. Unintentional gun deaths are preventable ones more often than not, and the easiest way to not add to the statistics is to not point loaded guns at people. Remember – guns don’t kill people – it’s the folks operating them that kill people.
