HE’S SHOT: Biden Malfunctions at Black-Tie Dinner with Governors (VIDEO)

Joe Biden Saturday evening welcomed Governors and their spouses for a black-tie dinner at the White House in the State Dining Room.

It was way past Joe Biden’s bedtime.

Biden malfunctioned as he tried to read a quote from “the man behind me here.”

He could not read his own notes.

They’re really running this guy again even though he is barely functioning.

San Francisco Store Resorts to Extreme Measures In Attempt to Stop ‘Rampant Shoplifting’

As the once beautiful city of San Francisco continues to devolve into chaos, one store has raised eyebrows for the extremes it is going to in order to stem the tide of retail theft it is suffering.

Retail theft has become an absolute plague in stores in most big, Democrat-run cities, and San Francisco has not been not spared the scourge that is closing stores all across the nation.

The problem has forced many businesses to simply give up and close down. Others have tried putting much of their wares under lock and key to prevent people from just grabbing armfuls of items and walking out.

But one business is taking a whole new approach, according to KRON-TV.

Fredericksen’s Hardware and Paint in the Cow Hollow neighborhood has lighted on a novel idea.

“It’s pretty bad,” store manager Sam Black told the station. “I mean, the dollar amounts are pretty significant, and with the tools and now we’re getting snatch-and-grabs when they take whole displays, so it’s getting kind of dangerous for the employees and the customers.”

The hardware store has not only launched a new way to stop the “rampant shoplifting” owners are suffering, but is also offering a new shopping experience.

During designated hours, the store is offering a one-on-one shopping experience. For two hours each morning and two more each evening, customers will be escorted through the store guided by an employee.

“We just want to make it uncomfortable for the thieves so they go somewhere else,” Black said.

As customers are being escorted, others will be left standing near a table being used to block the exits so that thieves can’t freely roam the store.

Black said that in all the years he has been in business, the retail theft he is now experiencing is the worst he has ever seen, he told the station.

The store has also taken to locking up many products to prevent theft.

“Yeah, people aren’t happy,” Black said of customer reaction to the product lockdowns. “The regulars can’t believe it like we can’t believe it, but they’ve been really understanding.”

Black also has criticism for the city over this whole situation, and added that they aren’t getting any help at all from the police or city officials.

The new one-on-one shopping plan has been going on for three weeks. Black says he will evaluate its success at the end of the month.

Black added that he is not sure how long he will maintain this program, but he has to do something.

San Francisco supervisor Catherine Stefani blasted the situation.

“This situation is tragic and embarrassing for our city, and it’s all the more reason to get serious about solving our police staffing crisis,” Stefani said in a statement.

“We need more police on our streets, and we need them now. That’s why I’ll hold a series of hearings in March to push our city agencies to fill the hundreds of vacancies at the Police Department as soon as possible — to stop the bleeding, reverse the damage, and finally protect our residents and small businesses,” she said.

Stefani, though she is right to want to empower the police after years of the defund the police attacks on law enforcement, is missing the bigger problem. The root of the problem is the George Soros-bought prosecutors who won’t put criminals in jail.

Crooks know that they are being given carte blanche to rob stores blind and that nothing at all will be done to them. So, why not just rob with impunity? Until this dereliction of duty perpetrated by the prosecutors is reversed, these constant waves of theft will not recede.

House Judiciary Committee Issues Subpoena for Health and Human Services Secretary, Accuses Agency of Concealing Gang Affiliations of Illegal Minors Charged With Serious Crimes

Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra

Jim Jordan (R-OH), Chair of the House Judiciary Committee, issued a subpoena for Health and Human Services  (HHS) Secretary Xavier Becerra on Tuesday requesting case files on unaccompanied child migrants charged with crimes in the U.S. after being released by HHS.

The letter accuses Becerra of concealing the gang affiliations of illegal aliens who are minors and are then caught committing serious crimes like theft, brutal assault, and murder.

According to a press release, since June 2023, the Committee has requested several HHS case files for criminal aliens “but has been stonewalled by HHS, which has baselessly withheld the case files for months.”

“As an extraordinary accommodation to HHS, the Committee agreed to review the case file materials in camera; however, once Committee staff began to review the documents, it became clear that HHS had applied pervasive redactions to the documents—without notice to the Committee. Across multiple case files, HHS redacted information about whether specific UACs had ‘identifying scars, marks, or tattoos’—information that can be indicative of gang affiliation. Worse, HHS went so far as to redact information explicitly requested by the Committee, including information shared with HHS by other agencies and immigration case history information.”

“By unilaterally redacting the case files, HHS rendered the requested materials provided for in camera review all but useless, frustrating and impeding the Committee’s investigation into HHS’ release of criminal aliens into the U.S.”

In the letter to Secretary Becerra, Rep. Jordan concludes,

HHS’s failure to provide the requested case file materials hinders the Committee’s ability to fulfill its constitutional oversight obligations and is unacceptable. The Supreme Court has recognized that Congress has a “broad and indispensable” power to conduct oversight, which “encompasses inquiries into the administration of existing laws, studies of proposed laws, and surveys in our social, economic or political system for the purpose of enabling Congress to remedy them.”26 Pursuant to the Rules of the House of Representatives, the Committee has jurisdiction to conduct oversight of matters concerning federal immigration law to inform potential legislative reforms. These potential legislative reforms could include reforming HHS ORR’s placement process, including to ensure criminal aliens are held in secure placements, rather than being released to a sponsor, or to enhance the level of scrutiny ORR applies in vetting UACs and potential sponsors before UACs are released in the care of a sponsor.

Accordingly, and considering your disregard of our earlier voluntary requests and rejection of the extraordinary accommodation as offered by the Committee, please find attached a subpoena for the requested documents and information.

Self-immolation is commonly used as an act of extreme protest and has happened multiple times in DC.

On Earth Day in 2022, April 22, climate activist Wynn Alan Bruce set himself on fire outside the Supreme Court Building. He died from his injuries.

In 2017, an anti-Trump protester lit himself on fire outside what was then Trump Hotel. He was transported to the hospital and treated for non-life threatening burns.

As “Pharmacy Deserts” Spread Across The USA, One Way To Protect Your Family From Medicine Shortages

(Note: Thank you for supporting businesses like the one presenting a sponsored message below and ordering through the links below, which benefits Gateway Pundit. We appreciate your support!)

For decades, Walgreens, CVS, and Rite Aid invaded towns across the United States, pushing Main Street independent mom-and-pop pharmacies out of business.

NOW CONSUMERS ARE PAYING THE PRICE

Profit targets, cost cutting, and inflation have led to the “big 3” shuttering over 1,500 pharmacies across the United States.  The past 2 years have been especially brutal. Supply chain shortages, theft, pharmacist strikes, and financial penalties for Big Pharma’s role in the opioid crisis forced the closure of many pharmacies.

PHARMACY DESERTS

A new reality is here to stay: over 40% of counties in the United States now live in a complete “pharmacy desert” – meaning that every resident needs to drive at least 15 minutes to get to the closest pharmacy. Moreover, over 80% of counties in the US now lack adequate healthcare infrastructure. If you need medical help quickly, living in the United States could cost you dearly.

It doesn’t have to be this way.

A lot of people agree on 2 things:

The next medical crisis is just around the corner.

You can’t count on the healthcare system to keep you well.

Dr. Thorp, one of the nation’s leading critics of the corrupting influence of big pharma, believes that now – more than ever – people should be prepared for the next pandemic:

“I’ve strongly recommended “stock piling” critical medications including antibiotics since the turn of the century. This has been an incredible investment as many friends, family and patients have benefited.  Now, in winter of 2023, this recommendation is even more crucial.”

The Wellness Company and their doctors are medical professionals that you can trust and their new medical emergency kits are the gold standard when it comes to keeping you safe and healthy.

Italian TV Brutally Mocks Feeble Joe Biden (Video)

Screen Image/Source: Nove Canale 9

Everyone is laughing at the United States and the pathetic leadership of dementia Joe.

A clip shared on X from Italian TV shows what the world really thinks of old Joe.

As the skit opens, a wandering Biden misses the podium multiple times while in a state of confusion.

The Biden character opens his remarks by mistaking Israeli President Isaac Herzog with the deceased former leader of the Soviet Union, Mikhail Gorbachev, and then names former NBA star Michael Jordan.

“I said to the president of Israel, Mikhail Gorbachev…” he says. “Sorry, Michael Jordan, when he went to the moon…long shot from Dallas.”

“Sorry, it wasn’t the moon, it was Mars. ‘Mars Attacks.’ Beautiful film where Netanyahu sang, ‘Somewhere over the garage,’” the performance went on before a briefcase representing the nuclear football was pulled out and opened to reveal a giant red button.

“I forgot to take the pills!” he yells before pushing a button and then the screen cut to an explosion.

WATCH: Newsom Laughs After Reporter Asks If Biden Has Better Chance of Beating Trump Than Him

California Governor Gavin Newsom laughed after a Fox News reporter asked if Joe Biden has a better chance of beating former President Donald Trump than he does.

Newsom has long been rumored to be running a shadow campaign, intending to step in and replace Biden at the last moment.

“The special counsel report that came out last week against it for President Biden. It had, quote, he is a sympathetic, well-meaning elderly man with a poor memory. What do you think of this?” the reporter began.

The reporter continued, “And then also for the 2024 election… Does 81-year-old President Biden have a better chance of beating Donald Trump than you? And do you disagree with 86% of Americans who think he’s too old to run?”

The question prompted a round of giggles from Newsom and members of his administration.

“Well, I appreciate, the question in the framing, but, I also appreciate my president and, and his performance,” Newsom began.

“I’m a little old fashioned. I care about results,” the governor said. “I care about governing. I care about people that deliver. And I care about people’s record and, and what President Biden has accomplished in just three years is the most significant list of accomplishments in my lifetime.”

Newsom continued, “And I don’t say that lightly. I say that knowingly, because we’re quite literally here as a beneficiary of those accomplishments. The Homekey motto was inspired by the partnerships that we formed with this administration. The remarkable investments in the infrastructure bill, the remarkable Investments, CHIPS and Science Act, the remarkable and unprecedented investments across a spectrum including Safer Communities Act and new investments in mental health and gun safety.”

The heaps of praise did not stop there.

“The work he’s done to eliminate that, for so many, that are burdened with student loans, I can go on and on. The work he’s done in terms of his alliance management. NATO is stronger and it’s larger than it’s been. Russia’s weaker than they’ve ever been,” Newsom said. “The work he did as it relates to strengthening our alliances, including perhaps, some of the most and most consequential as it relates to, the partnerships now and the new strategic alliances with Japan and South Korea in relationship to what’s going on around the globe.”

Finally, the governor concluded, “So I’m very proud of this president, and I’m very enthusiastic to be out there on the campaign trail for him. When asked, the answer’s yes. And I say that enthusiastically, regardless of time of life. And, I am very, very proud to be a Democrat and proud to support his reelection.”

“It Doesn’t Make Sense!” – CNN Panel Has Epic Meltdown After Trump Gets Double the Number of Votes Ever Received in South Carolina (VIDEO)

CNN had a meltdown after Trump crushed Nikki Haley in her home state in South Carolina’s presidential primary.

Trump scooped up the 50 delegates in South Carolina after he was the projected winner one minute after the polls closed.

It wasn’t even close. Trump won South Carolina by double digits: Trump 59% – Haley 40%

Trump has swept four states so far: Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada, and South Carolina.

Despite losing every primary so far to Trump, former UN Ambassador and South Carolina governor Nikki Haley has vowed to stay in the race.

Trump brought the house down with a fiery victory speech Saturday night.

“I was just informed that we got double the number of votes that has ever been received in the great state of South Carolina,” Trump said on Saturday night in a victory speech.

Jonah Goldberg called Tim Scott “the black guy” while David Axelrod said Senator Scott “subjugated” himself Saturday night.

“It is the greatest political comeback in history,” Trump’s former White House Communications Director Alyssa Farah Griffin said.

“It doesn’t make sense!” a panelist shouted.

Letitia James Posting Daily Score of Massive Added Interest on Trump Fine: “+$114,553.04 = $464,805,336.70”

New York state Attorney General Letitia James (D) is posting a daily score of the added interest in the fine imposed on President Trump by Judge Engoron in the judgment in the civil case accusing Trump of inflating property values. Trump denies the charges. Lenders to Trump have not claimed fraud against him and have testified they were paid back in full and would gladly do business with Trump again.

File screen image.

In addition to barring Trump from doing business in New York for three years, the fine imposed by Engoron on February 16 in the non-jury trial case is about $355,000,000, however interest has pushed the amount to over $454,000,000 according to on entry by the clerk of the court on Friday (excerpt from ABC News):

The clerk for New York County’s Supreme Court signed and entered the judgment order Friday in former President Donald Trump’s civil fraud case, in which he owes $355 million in fines plus approximately $100 million in interest.

Shortly after, New York Attorney General Letitia James filed a notice of entry in the case, which started the clock on Trump’s financial penalties in the case, which come to $454,156,783 in disgorgement and pre-judgment interest.

Trump now has 30 days to appeal the case to New York’s Appellate Division, First Department. In order to stay the execution of the fine in the case, the former president needs to post a bond or put cash into an escrow account to cover the fines plus interest, according to James.

…Until he places the full amount of the fine into an escrow account, Trump will owe 9% interest on the full judgment, or over $3 million per month.

A timeline of the case from last year can be read at this link.

Starting on Friday after she filed the notice of entry for the accumulated $454 million fine and interest, James has posted a daily tabulation.

Engoroan sent an email Thursday to Trump attorney Clifford Robert rejecting an appeal by Trump to delay the fine while he filed an appeal:

“Dear Mr. Robert,
You have failed to explain, much less justify, any basis for a stay.
I am confident that the Appellate Division will protect your appellate rights.
Justice Engoron

Trump must put up the total amount of the fine and interest or purchase a bond to appeal the judgment. Details of the appeal process can be read at this link.

Transgender Killer Sentenced to 22 Years on ‘Manslaughter’ Charge for Brutal Stabbing of Portland Cab Driver

A transgender killer has been sentenced to 22 years in prison for “manslaughter” after brutally stabbing a Portland cab driver to death on April 9, 2023.

Moses J. Lopez, 30, was convicted of one count of first-degree manslaughter and one count of unlawful use of a weapon for the unprovoked deadly attack on Reese McDowell Lawhon, 43.

Footage from inside the cab showed Lopez sitting in the backseat wearing a tiara and women’s clothing.

Lopez refused to apologize for the killing, instead playing the victim.

The Oregonian reports:

Lopez had been out partying earlier that night in downtown Portland, but the evening took a turn for the worse, so Lopez called 911 and asked for a ride home. The operator told Lopez to call a cab, Lopez said, but the Radio Cab dispatcher entered the wrong address.

“I ended up in a very scary part of town where I was genuinely afraid,” Lopez said. “I refuse to apologize for the lack of help that I so desperately needed.”

Lopez said they are often afraid of being targeted because they identify as a transgender person.

Lawhon was driving to the correct location when Lopez stabbed him in the neck using a brass-knuckle punch-dagger.
