Old Joe Biden wants America to elect him president again, even if America didn’t elect him the first time, and in his first campaign ad, he presents himself as the only force standing between us and those who would destroy our nation as a free society and establish a dictatorship.

Prominent Democrats have questioned the integrity of every presidential election a Republican has won this century, and that’s a necessary and patriotic act, but when the tables are turned, “our democracy,” a phrase leftists use to refer to their own hegemony, is suddenly under attack. Then there is, of course, the Jan. 6 “insurrection,” but that narrative has steadily unraveled under the weight of footage that undercuts the Democrats’ claim that we were on the brink of becoming a dictatorship because some guy with viking horns was walking around in the Capitol…Continue Reading
