Chinese Spies, Joe Biden, and the Ghost of Beau

The greatest show on earth begins in earnest.

Editor’s Note: From the Back Forty is Liberty Nation’s longest running and most popular weekly column. 

President Joe Biden delivers a message of condolence complete with an impromptu lie. Comedian Bill Maher has conservatives wondering if the man is on seriously strong feelgood meds, and the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has been cleared of one spying incident in India. Heartlanders have a bad case of whiplash this week.

The Ghost of Beau Biden

Beau Biden tragically lost his life to brain cancer in 2015 – but his military service has kept his father haunted for years. President Joe Biden continually claimed he lost his son in Iraq and that he and Mrs. Biden felt despair in seeing Beau’s flag-draped coffin. This claim drives people batty – especially those who actually lost their children to war.

Curtis Houck, managing editor of NewsBusters, posted a video clip on X of the recent reality detour: “Oh well, I tell you what, it means a lot, a lot to me. My son spent a year in Iraq. That’s how I lost him,” Biden expressed sympathy, consoling Gold Star families of the three service members killed in the recent drone attack in Jordan.

The casual yet intentional falsehood had one Gold Star mom, Cheryl Rex, speaking out about the botched Afghanistan withdrawal that caused the deaths of 13 US service people:

“His words to me were, ‘My wife, Jill, and I know how you feel. We lost our son as well and brought him home in a flag-draped coffin.’ My heart started beating faster, and I started shaking, knowing that their son died from cancer, and they were able to be by his side.”

Linda Welch just wants to know: “Why the hell doesn’t Jill tell him before he meets with the families NOT to say his son died in Iraq?”

Let’s Try It Again

The House Democratic Caucus Issues Conference has invited the Big Chief to rally the troops in anticipation of the 2024 election. Mr. Biden will speak at Lansdowne Resort in Leesburg, Virginia, on the outskirts of the Swamp. It’s time to strategize and pin down talking points and soundbites.

Ben Polis of North Carolina wonders if there will be a repeat of Groundhog Day: “Organizers of the Presidential Groundhog Day Celebration report President Biden did, in fact, see his shadow after emerging from the West Wing late Tuesday Morning and immediately attempted to shake its hand.”

Minnesota boys Vernon Dozier and Ryan Seifert were also concerned. “The dementia patient is about to drool out some muttering, stuttering drivel to his Dolt base,” claimed Vernon. Ryan was less subtle: “The message is stammering incoherent dementia noises. *Sniffs little girl on the way out.”

Bill Maher on the Border

Heartlanders don’t quite trust leftist comedian Bill Maher but often – begrudgingly – agree with the man’s Captain Obvious routine regarding politics. On the HBO show Real Time, Maher recently began with this statement: “Republicans act like they want to solve this, but the Democrats called their bluff. There is a bill right now that, a lot of them, Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY), some pretty conservative senators, saying, this is as good a deal as you’re going to get. They don’t want it because they don’t want this issue to be solved. Because they need it as an issue.”

And just when the good people of Middle America were about to commence a tirade on X, they quieted down. Maher was not quite finished. He tossed the hot potato back to the Oval Office:

“I was going to say, part two of the acting is Joe Biden saying, you know what? If you just give me a new law. A new law? Why doesn’t — the President can fix this. He already has the existing laws. This is all so silly. I need a piece of paper from Congress to deal with the border. No, you already have that.”

In Norfolk, Nebraska, Jean Wacker observed: “An absolutely dysfunctional administration! They care nothing about the citizens of the US.”

Steven Stein of Medina, Ohio, chimed in: “The *President knows this. The question people need to ask themselves is, why won’t he close the border? I know the answer, but people have to come to the realization on their own in order to get their heads right.”

Free at Last

After being imprisoned for eight months by police in India, an alleged Chinese spy was released from the cage. As reported by the Associated Press, a pigeon was found near a port in Mumbai last spring. The bird became a pigeon of interest for espionage because it wore two rings on its legs and carried a Chinese-like script.

After being detained for almost a year, the bird – which had evidently gone AWOL from Taiwan – was released. As weird as the news was, it wasn’t the first time a pigeon was suspected of spying in India. In 2020, India released a Pakistani fisherman’s pigeon for lack of evidence. In 2016, another bird braved the no-fly zone and delivered a threat to Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Even that jail bird was eventually released.

Roger Anglin asked: “I wonder if they tortured the poor thing into spilling state secrets?”
