Bad Acting Is Always Around Biden

The following was copied from Personal Liberty Digest. The author of the piece is Ben Bullard  But first we offer this disclaimer as to copyright and Fair Use


Fair Use

The policy behind copyright law is not simply to protect the rights of those who produce content, but to “promote the progress of science and useful arts.” U.S. Const. Art. I, § 8, cl. 8. Because allowing authors to enforce their copyrights in all cases would actually hamper this end, first the courts and then Congress have adopted the fair use doctrine in order to permit uses of copyrighted materials considered beneficial to society, many of which are also entitled to First Amendment protection. Fair use will not permit you to merely copy another’s work and profit from it, but when your use contributes to society by continuing the public discourse or creating a new work in the process, fair use may protect you.

Section 107 of the Copyright Act defines fair use as follows:

[T]he fair use of a copyrighted work, including such use by reproduction in copies or phonorecords or by any other means specified by that section, for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching (including multiple copies for classroom use), scholarship, or research, is not an infringement of copyright. In determining whether the use made of a work in any particular case is a fair use the factors to be considered shall include —

  1. the purpose and character of the use, including whether such use is of a commercial nature or is for nonprofit educational purposes;

  2. the nature of the copyrighted work;

  3. the amount and substantiality of the portion used in relation to the copyrighted work as a whole;

  4. and the effect of the use upon the potential market for or value of the copyrighted work.


‘Pure Intimidation’: Biden Press Secretary Apologizes After Staffer Goes Gestapo On Journalism Student

‘Pure Intimidation’: Biden Press Secretary Apologizes After Staffer Goes Gestapo On Journalism Student


Vice President Joe Biden

Joe Biden has issued an apology through his press secretary following an ugly incident in which a credentialed journalism student was rousted to surrender photos he had taken of the Vice President at a domestic violence speaking engagement in Rockville, Md.

Jeremy Barr, a student journalist attending the Tuesday event, was there on behalf of the University of Maryland’s Philip Merrill College of Journalism, covering featured speakers including U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, Senator Ben Cardin (D-Md.) and Biden.

Barr was reporting for the university’s award-winning, student-run Capital News Service; and he had received full clearance to cover the talks.

But after Barr (along with others in the general audience) took some iPhone pictures, Biden staffer Dana Rosenzweig confronted him and began putting the clamps down.

Barr had sat inadvertently in an area of the venue not designated for the press, although he observed that there was no obvious demarcation separating regular guests from those there to cover the event. At any rate, it was one of the staffers who directed the badge-wearing journalist to take his seat among the general audience in the first place. Also, the law allows anyone — regular citizens or members of the press — to take pictures of government leaders in public.

[The staffer] asked, “Did you take any photos during the event?” Barr said. He told the staffer, yes, he had taken a few photos.

She said, “I need to see your camera right now.” Barr said. The staffer called Barr’s presence in the non-press area an “unfair advantage” over the other members of the media at the event.

The staffer then requested to watch as Barr deleted the photos from his camera to ensure his compliance, Barr said.

After deleting the photos from the camera, the staffer asked Barr to show her his iPhone to make sure no photos were saved. Barr complied.

“I assumed that I’d violated a protocol,” Barr said. “I gave her the benefit of the doubt that she was following proper procedures.”

Barr was then asked to wait while the staffer contacted her supervisor. After approximately 10 minutes of waiting, the staffer made contact with her supervisor, apologized to Barr for the delay and permitted him to leave the venue.

Journalism School Dean Lucy Daglish went full Doberman in a letter to Biden’s press secretary that same day, saying Rosenzweig’s behavior was “pure intimidation” and a violation of every citizen’s 1st Amendment principles — one that wouldn’t have been out of place in a “third-world country where police-state style media censorship is expected.”

Biden press secretary Kendra Barkoff refused an interview with Capital News Service, but phoned both Daglish and Barr separately to apologize after Daglish filed a formal complaint.

Barr told the university newspaper he was glad the matter had been resolved. Daglish noted Barr has a right, under the law, to sue if he chooses.

“This was pure intimidation,” Dalglish said, adding that “it’s clear from the circumstance that the journalist did nothing wrong.”

Would Biden In Black Face Be Any Worse

The video below shows Uncle Joe as he speaks to newly elected Senator Tim Scott (R-SC) and members of the Senator’s family.  Uncle Joe attempts to show he is a common man by affecting an accent and pattern of speech out of his reach and purely out of line given the people to which he speaks.  I can almost guarantee if a Republican or Conservative performed in the same manner, the MainScreams and other progressives would have tried to make something akin to public whipping of such an episode and the word “racist” would be part of the accusation..

Biden is not a common man, he is a lawyer, and some would say, a polished politico.  You look and listen and decide for yourself:

Obama’s Imperial And Immature Government Pay Raises

I’m sure other ignorant executives have granted wage increases to undeserving elected officials and federal employees, but it is doubtful that any president has done so when this country is facing financial collapse close to the present extent.

This sort of action points to the immaturity and imperial attitude of Obama and his minions.  Below is an excerpt of the  action taken by Obama through another executive order (EO). After you peruse the EO information, follow the link found after the wage information for an article from The Weekly Standard:

Here’s the list of new wages, as attached to President Obama’s executive order:

“A new executive order has been issued providing for a new pay schedule beginning ‘on the first day of the first applicable pay period beginning after March 27, 2013,'” reports “The pay raise will generally be about 1/2 of 1%.”

Jeryl Bier points to an example of the pay increase for average government executives:

A Promise Keeper: HARDLY

A promise made by Obama is a worthless pronouncement made by an insincere politician.  We don’t need to go through a laundry list of Obama’s fake promises, but they are many.  One of the most telling of his broken promises relates to his pledge to kick the lobbyists from the White House.  We now know, thanks to investigations of White House visitor logs, many lobbyists, and Obama “party hardy” in the White House.

Quote Freely From The Article – Leave The Pseudonym Alone

Stranger things have happened with the election of our current president, but I wouldn’t call that election result funny or satisfying in any way.

In a recent short interview, when asked by Candy Crowley if he (Biden) had thought about a possible run for president in 2016, the gaffester replied to the effect: he did not want to get into that “now.”  Then he added he was having the best time of his life and he is in the best shape of his life.  I suppose he was letting the public  know in his opinion he is suitable and fit for a run for POTUS.  Not being a psychiatrist or other mental health professional, I can’t cast authentic doubt on the validity of his self-evaluation.

I can’t, but reviews of some of his gas-blown remarks are not likely to cause folks to support him for any future office, but then I am nominally prejudiced in my opinion of the man.  In any case, readers and viewers of this blog have had ample opportunity to hear and see him make several foolish and ignorant remarks.  I suppose we can get to the video and written narrative showing Crowley’s interview with the man.  You won’t have time to be bored.  The video is 30+ seconds and the text is short:
