“How [could that] possibly happen? How [could] anyone…be that irresponsible. And I thought, ‘What data was in there that may compromise sources and methods? By that I mean names of people who helped…it [is] just totally irresponsible.”

Those are the words of Joe Biden in an interview on September 18, 2022, regarding the Trump “classified documents scandal.” It didn't take long for Biden’s hypocrisy to be exposed.

A brief timeline:

November 2, 2022: About 10 classified documents were found at Biden’s “Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement” in Washington, D.C. How they got there and who put them there is still, to my knowledge, unknown. Interestingly, but totally unsurprisingly, the documents were uncovered about a week before the midterm elections, but not reported until long after. The National Archives reportedly took possession of the documents the next day (November 3).

December 20, 2022: More documents were found at a former Biden private office. Again, no full disclosure on how the documents got there, when they arrived, who put them there, or why.

January 11, 2023: A Biden lawyer discovered some classified documents in a room adjacent to Biden’s garage in one of his Delaware homes. Nothing is known about this room. But, as Joe said, at least they weren’t found on the street.

Joe’s son Hunter apparently lived in this house while the documents were there. Recent disclosures from Hunter indicate that he was paying $49,910 per month in rent to stay at the house from March 2017 to February 2018. Joe’s 2017 tax returns only listed $19,800 in “rents received.” His 2018 return shows no rents received.

Did Hunter pay the rent or not? In 2018, he claimed to own the house where the classified documents were stored. This needs to be investigated immediately.

January 12, 2023: Five more pages of documents were discovered at the Delaware house. The White House announces, two days later, that these new documents had been found.

So, Joe, perhaps you should answer your own questions. How could anybody be that irresponsible? Have all the classified documents Biden stashed somewhere been discovered yet? Check some of Hunter’s girlfriends' homes. There might be some pictures of some on the crack kid’s latest laptop. How about looking around Beijing? They probably have a few, too. How many did you give to Zelensky, Joe?

Classified government documents floating around is bad enough. But the issue goes deeper than a stupid old fool who probably needs his wife to help him find his dentures every morning. We are talking here about a mindset towards the United States of America, its national security, and vital interests. As vice president, Biden worked under the man who was the most obvious American-hating chief executive ever elected, and Obama chose Biden as his VP for a reason. Well, he recognized that a bumbling vice president would certainly never be a threat to his popularity, but Obama also wanted someone with the same attitudes and visions of America that he had. Obama needed a clone and he recognized he had one in Joe Biden.

Biden’s deficiency is not just a few misplaced papers; his problem is his whole attitude of disrespect, animosity, and rejection of the system of government established from our beginning and designed to keep America a strong, vital force for freedom in the world. We are seeing here a man with no moral compass at all, and who has no knowledge of what qualities a leader needs in order to guide a nation and keep a country strong and viable. It’s all a game to Biden, a political power game; he couldn’t care less if America is hurt by his actions because he couldn’t care less about America. The only thing Biden is concerned about now is not the damage his reckless activities might have caused to the United States, but how such will affect his chances at re-election next year. This kind of hubris is way too common in Washington, on both sides of the aisle.

Deeds like this come from either utter stupidity and incompetence, or from sinister motives that show a deranged view of proper government service. Yes, Mr. Biden, how could anybody be so irresponsible? In your case, it is obvious. You have far higher priorities in your public service than the well-being of the United States and her people. You don’t even THINK in terms of the well-being of the whole, you think only of yourself (re-election), your family, and your party, and probably in that order. You wouldn’t be letting millions of unwashed foreigners into the country if you had one iota of interest in America and what those foreign unknowns might do or bring with them. Or that American taxpayers, the people you are SUPPOSED to represent, are having to pay their expenses. It’s a mindset, one the Democratic Party, as a whole, has, and one which is truly detrimental to the advancement of our society. That has been obvious from everything Biden has done since he became president two years ago.

Careless, reckless handing of classified documents, a matter which might risk the safety and welfare of the American nation and people, is totally inexcusable, I don’t care who does it. We are paying these people good money to do a job, to make wise decisions that will benefit and advance the American people. Both Democrats and Republicans are miserably failing us. They are failing us morally, economically, socially, militarily and by just about every other standard one can measure their actions. In what area ARE they truly succeeding?

These “classified documents” scandals are a symptom, folks, not the disease. We elected these people; we have no one to blame but ourselves. They are only a further reflection and representation of the utter corruption and misguidance of the garbage we have sent to Washington, D.C.
