Republican Senator Wants To Know: Who Controls Joe Biden?

It's obviously not Biden himself.

Who has their hand up Joe Biden’s back? The suspects are myriad. But one thing is certain. Biden himself does not pull his own strings. The poor sod probably isn’t coherent enough to be able to, as the ravages of age and confusion are taking their toll on him. However, that was likely the deal. All of the show. None of the power.

“Okay, look Joe,” he was little doubt told by a major party player in mid 2018, “we both know your time has passed. But play ball and do what you’re told and you’ll sit behind the big desk. Just leave the rest to us.” The question is, who is us?

FNC: “Sen. James Risch, R-Idaho, claimed Tuesday that someone in the White House other than President Biden is ‘calling the shots.’

Risch made the comments during Secretary of State Antony Blinken’s hearing before the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations about the U.S. military withdrawal from Afghanistan, which the senator called a ‘dismal failure.’

Are you embarrassed that Joe Biden is our "president"?

The senator cited an instance Monday in which the White House abruptly ended the feed of Biden’s briefing on wildfires with federal and state officials, cutting him off mid-sentence during a question to George Geissler of the National Association of State Foresters.”

“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. This is a puppeteer act, if you would, and we need to know who’s in charge and who is making the decisions.”

Risch was on a roll. “There is not enough lipstick in the world to put on this pig to make it look any differently than what it actually is,” he said referring to the Afghanistan bugout. “The American people want to know who is responsible for this?”

“Ultimately, the president makes the decisions,” Secretary Blinken responded. “As in every case, ultimately decisions that can only be decided by the president are decided by the president.” But recent facts prove him wrong. Risch was not giving up.

“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?” the senator asked.

“There is no such person,” Blinken answered, saying that Biden “speaks very clearly and very deliberately for himself. No one else does.” Again, a provable lie. How? By this.

Biden has recently said, “I’m not supposed to take any questions.” He then confessed he was “instructed” to call on chosen reporters, and declared “they gave me a list of people I’m going to call on.” He said he would “get in trouble” if he didn’t follow the list and then unbelievably said, “I’d be happy to take questions if that’s what I’m supposed to do.” We ask again, who would he get in trouble with if he is running the show?

This reminds me of Joek’s Townhalls during the campaign.
After each one, all he had to do was “turn & exit stage left”.
The Problem was, he forgot each and every time; forcing a staffer to wave and yell “This way, Sir” !
