Joe Biden is going all out to win over the hearts and minds of Democrats, with around thirty days remaining until the midterm election that his political party is certain to lose.
His most recent huge attempt to appear heroic to his base is awarding blanket pardons to everyone charged with a certain federal felony. From college tuition debt relief to thousands of simultaneous pardons, Biden is playing Santa Claus to garner votes, at the expense of American taxpayers.
Except for those who actually need it, who are paying record prices and surviving on less than they were two years ago, everyone appears to be bailed out of their duties. But Biden doesn’t care, and it’s probable that his people who are receiving the giveaway don’t care either, as long as they’re receiving it.
If only we could claim these people as dependents on our taxes, since an army of 84,000 new (and now armed) IRS officials will hunt us down for every last cent they can obtain… but I digress.
The Daily Caller reported on Thursday that “President Joe Biden announced Thursday he was ‘pardoning all prior federal offenses of simple marijuana possession,’ saying ‘no one should be in jail just for using or possessing marijuana.’
“The president also called for governors to follow his lead and pardon ‘simple state marijuana possession,’ and asked for a review on how marijuana is classified under federal law, arguing it makes ‘no sense’ that the drug is on the same legal level as heroin.”
Given that marijuana is legal in many areas and should not be considered a felony, the timing of this news is excellent. Biden is attempting to fill the news cycle with “good news” to distract from everything else that is going wrong under his watch, such as the rising cost of petrol, food, electricity, and everything else. It’s all gone WAY up, and it’s only expected to become worse after he removes his finger from the inflation plug after the 2022 elections, when he will no longer be able to keep inflation artificially low.
It’s also worth noting that his son is a known drug addict, so it’s ironic that he continues to ignore Hunter’s issues, which have become a security nightmare for the nation. What follows? The legalization of crack cocaine and the acquittal of those charged with its abuse or distribution? That is a certain technique to keep charges away from his nepotistically-favored child.
Biden said in his statement on the pardon,“As federal and state regulations change, we still need important limitations on trafficking, marketing, and underage sales of marijuana.”
CNN further emphasized the timeliness of this story in relation to the forthcoming election and the possible impact it may have. “The announcement comes less than a month before the midterms, and would affect “thousands” of federal offenders,” CNN reported.
According to a White House letter, “The pardon would extend to offenders who were U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents at the time, not unlawful immigrants.”
Biden stated in 2019 that he wanted additional research into whether or not marijuana was a “gateway drug,” but he also pledged to decriminalize its use and “automatically expunge prior convictions.”

The Daily Caller report added that Biden’s “campaign promise on marijuana stalled during his presidency due to the COVID-19 pandemic, according to Vice President Kamala Harris.”
“In April of 2021, Harris said the administration hadn’t ‘yet’ taken on the issue of decriminalizing marijuana.” CONTINUE READING…
