Editorial: Joe’s document dilemma

Column By Mike Bibb

Today, we learned that when Joe Biden left the vice presidency, boxes containing classified documents, vice presidential records, and other items were stored in three different locations around the Washington, D.C. area, including an office near the White House, an office in Chinatown, and eventually the Penn-Biden Center.  At some point, the boxes were transported by personal vehicles to an office location.  The boxes were not in a ‘locked closet’ at the Penn-Biden Center and remained accessible to Penn-Biden employees as well as potentially others with access to the office space.

Mr. Comer did not mention additional classified papers were also discovered at Joe’s two homes in Delaware.

Who knows where else?

Now, comes word some have also been viewed on Twitter!

Good grief, Joe’s document scandal seems to have acquired a life of its own.  Guess anyone with a phone or computer can access them.  Why doesn’t he simply place an ad on Craigslist?

Actually, he almost has. 

According to the New York Times, April 7, 2023, another batch of about 50 documents involving national security issues, and sensitive information regarding Ukraine, China, and the Mideast appeared on social media sites, including Twitter.

Obviously, not a good scenario – when the peace and safety of the nation is concerned.  Particularly, when actual photos of many of the records were posted.

Can Joe’s crew get anything right?  Anything?  If so, name one!

This whole classified document debacle is getting completely out of hand.  While the Biden Department of Justice had no qualms about sending squads of armed FBI agents into former President Trump’s Florida residence looking for classified reports, it has been considerably more tolerant when dealing with Joe’s repeatedly offensive antics.

The double standard of justice is painfully apparent.  Even more so,  considering Hunter’s entanglement in a myriad of national and international intrigues involving large sums of money.  In spite of Joe’s continued insistence that he knows nothing about it.

Witnesses and photo evidence reveal otherwise. 

If these newest reports of Joe’s improprieties are true – and, it appears they are – why haven’t moderate Democrats begun to question the misdeeds?

I realize today’s Democrat Party has drifted a considerable distance from where it was only a few years ago, but surely not every member has gone woke or supports extreme left-wing policies.  There must be a few older individuals who still believe moderation, reasonableness, and equal treatment under the law remain valid options.

Unfortunately, I’m not completely convinced that’s the case.  Especially, in an environment determined to eradicate a former president any way it can, by any means possible.

Including, altering the law to create an alleged crime, and then intentionally prosecuting an individual for being in violation of the fictitious legalism. 

At the same time, ignoring a growing list of suspicious conduct and activities by the current president.

To avoid embarrassing questions, Joe and Hunter jumped on the big airplane and shuffled off to Ireland to learn a little family history and tour a few old castles.  Of course, Joe has reminded us several times “I may be Irish, but I’m not stupid.” 

A statement that would probably qualify as a perfect example of the dictionary definition of an oxymoron. 

As pieces of the puzzle fall into place, and the overall picture becomes more apparent, I suspect Joe Biden’s administration will ultimately be exposed as one of the most fractious, and fatuous political organizations in United States history.

His previous boss, former President Barack Obama, had Joe pegged when he remarked “Never underestimate Joe’s ability to f*** things up.”

Truer words were never spoken.

I just hope his face doesn’t soon appear on a blue Bud Light beer can – like TikTok trans star Dylan Mulvaney – with a caption assuring us “COVID-19, open borders, inflation, spy balloons, and my boot-legged document papers were Trump’s fault.  That’s a fact, Jack.”

There may actually be a few dimwits, and corporate beer marketing geniuses foolish enough to believe it.

Wait, I just remembered Mulvaney was a guest of Joe’s at the White House several months ago.

Maybe, they discussed similar social and political interests.  Perhaps, Dylan was interviewing for an appointment as the new U.S. Ambassador to Transylvania.

I think I need something a little stronger than a Bud Light to cope with this nonsense!
