Speaker Johnson Says What We Are All Thinking: Joe Biden Isn't the Guy in Charge

On Friday, Speaker of the House of Representatives, Mike Johnson (R-LA) mused about the possibility of something that is becoming more and more apparent with each passing day:


Joe Biden isn't the guy in charge in Washington.

Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La.) speculated Friday that President Biden’s staff is keeping him from taking executive action to stem the flow of migrants on the southern border.

“He knows that he has the authority. We’ve documented it for him. I’ve read to him the law myself — to the president. Read him the provisions of the law and said, ‘Mr. President, please take action,’” Johnson said on Fox Business on Friday morning.

“I don’t think he’s allowed to do it. I’m not sure Joe Biden is actually making these decisions. I think it’s staff around him, and they’re pushing him to hold the — or to keep the border open,” Johnson said.

Whoever is making these policy decisions, it's obvious they don't have the best interests of Americans at heart.

Speaker Johnson blames the policies on "staff around him," although I've speculated in the past that Jill Biden is enjoying playing Edith Wilson to Joe's Woodrow. But whoever is pulling these strings on the ever-more-impaired President is claiming that the Chief Executive, somehow, lacks the power to execute.


The White House has disputed that Biden can do more through executive authority and accused the Speaker of resisting the Senate border deal and pushing for executive actions — despite previously calling for enactment of other border legislation — for political reasons. Former President Trump has urged Republicans, and Johnson specifically, to reject the Senate border deal.

The President, as the head of the Executive Branch, has the primary responsibility for control of our nation's borders. In this, the Biden Administration has failed so completely, so utterly, so inexcusably, that the states themselves are throwing their own forces into the breach.

As is so often the case, there's an elephant in the room here, and that is that Joe Biden is not fit to serve as President, and has not been for some time. (If you ask me, he never was, but that's another story.) His deterioration, both mental and physical, is becoming more apparent and more worrisome at every appearance, every time he speaks, every time he answers a question. 

The Mayo Clinic lists signs of dementia as including such things as memory loss, problems with word-finding, trouble planning and organizing, poor coordination and control of movements, confusion and deterioration, anxiety, agitation, and inappropriate behavior. The President has presented all of these symptoms in recent weeks. His inability to come to grips with any serious problem is allowing these unknown string-pullers to tacitly approve an invasion across our southern border, while our enemies are emboldened by the President's weakness.


This is precisely the situation that the 25th Amendment was intended to address.

It's been a long time since a President put the nation's interests ahead of his own. Whoever is pulling President Biden's strings, be it the First Lady or parties unknown, certainly is not; what they are doing is putting the country in actual no-s**t danger by allowing this "Weekend at Bernie's" Presidency to continue. And it's more difficult all the time to see how the situation at our southern border can wait for the next President before something is done.
