The Brew: Biden’s Memory Loss Saves His Bacon as Dudes Dominate Women’s Volleyball Match

By Al Perrotta Published on February 9, 2024

Happy Super Bowl weekend!

Today’s Brew comes with a bowl of chips and dip. But first … Oh, man. What a day.

Special Counsel Won’t Charge Biden for Mishandling Classified Docs … Because His Mind is Gone

Special Counsel Robert Hur doesn’t want to press charges on Joe Biden, despite how he “willfully retained and shared” classified documents. A prime reason offered is Hur’s belief a jury would have “sympathy” for an elderly man with severe memory loss who can’t recall when he was VP or even when his son died.

What more is needed to invoke the 25th Amendment?

We have the full details in “Biden ‘Willfully Retained and Shared Classified Info’, But His Memory is Too Shot to Be Convicted.”

Joe Biden Says He Talked to Yet Another Dead Foreign Leader

Joe Biden told donors at a ritzy New York fundraiser Wednesday that he had spoken to German Chancellor Helmut Kohl at the 2021 G7 Summit. Kohl died in 2017. The German Chancellor at the summit was Angela Merkel. Biden’s confusion came days after he said he spoke to long-dead French Prime Minister Francois Mitterrand at that same summit. And a day after blanking on the name “Hamas.”

And now you’ve got the Special Counsel’s devastating report. When’s enough enough?

Clearly, Joe’s not going to step down on his own, Harris and the Cabinet are too weak to do their constitutional duty, D.C.’s Adult Protective Services won’t dare act, Biden’s puppet masters are perfectly content, Jill obviously is okay with her husband humiliating himself, Hunter and Biden’s sibs won’t step up because the Big Guy’s the only thing keeping them in the money and out of prison. Where are his grandkids? Not one is willing to say, “Grandpa, you gotta hang it up”?

Yesterday we talked about how dangerous this all is. Today, it just seems so very, very sad.

Perhaps someone should ask Biden, “What would Beau want you to do?” Worth a shot.

SCOTUS Hears Argument Over Whether States Can Unilaterally Boot Trump Off Ballot, Isn’t Impressed

If yesterday’s oral arguments are any indication, the Supreme Court intends to make short work of the efforts to keep Trump off the ballot in certain states via the 14th Amendment. The justices kept smacking down the lawyer arguing that Colorado has the right to boot Trump. Even the liberal justices who’d love to skewer Trump were skeptical.

Liberal Justice Kagan, with the impatience of a lady running late for high tea, cut in at one point, declaring, “I think that the question you have to confront is why a single state should decide who gets to be President of the United States. … If you were not from Colorado … that seems quite extraordinary, doesn’t it?”

As Constitutional scholar Jonathan Turley noted, even radical Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson, who openly called Trump an insurrectionist during the arguments, “seemed to push the idea that the president may not have been intended to be one of those covered by the provision.”

Amy Coney Barrett delivered this body blow:

The only questions appear to be, “When will SCOTUS announce its decision?” and “Will it be unanimous?”

Five Dudes Play in Women’s College Volleyball Game in Canada

For those who want men participating in women’s competitive sports, don’t even try defending this. FIVE men played in a woman’s college volleyball game in Canada. It gets worse. According to Rebel News, the three guys for the Seneca Sting and the two guys for the Centennial Colts played the entire match. Meaning, subs who were female were stuck on the bench.

Seneca, with the three guys, won. In fact, they are 17-1 and on a 13-game winning streak, according to Not the Bee. When asked why he’d play men on his women’s team, Centennial’s coach replied, “I’m not.”

PETA Now Targeting Animal-Themed Carousels

PETA is now a few horses short of a herd. The animal rights group is now a pretend-animal rights group. PETA has gone after a carousel builder in Kansas City for incorporating animals on their merry-go-rounds. Not real animals, mind you. Just those finely-crafted, beautifully-painted horses and other creatures that have been a fixture on carousels forever.

According to a statement from PETA, animal-themed carousels unintentionally promote animal exploitation, showing kids animals are “conveyances” and “amusement.”

In their letter to Chance Rides, PETA pushes for merry-go-rounds to feature cars, planes, bulldozers and the like. Meaning, the very things that environmentalists say are destroying the planet.

And round-and-round we go. I mean, really, people. Merry-Go-Rounds are now a problem? Perhaps it’s a sign things are looking up when the activist demands get sillier and sillier.
