It’s always January 6 somewhere

The Biden administration has exerted itself to elevate President Trump in the eyes of Republican voters. Donald Trump is in any event President Biden’s opponent of choice in the 2024 election. Is that really debatable?

Biden seems to have tired of promoting Bidenomics as his ticket to reelection. He kicked off his 2024 campaign in earnest yesterday near Valley Forge with a speech whose heading tells you everything you need to know: Remarks by President Biden on the Third Anniversary of the January 6th Attack and Defending the Sacred Cause of American Democracy. The New York Post covers the speech in this story by Steven Nelson and Victor Nava.

The video below is posted at Kamala Harris’s YouTube site. YouTube seems not to have larded it with advertisements. They want to give viewers unimpeded access. The festivities begin at about 2:10. I have teed up the video to begin as Biden takes the stage with the guidance of Dr. Jill at about 5:00. He only spoke for 35 minutes. On a feels-like basis, however, the speech was of Castroite length.

His mental acuity and thought process supports my vote! He knows more about democracy, and upholds democracy than most other politicians (some who support Orbin, Putin, and other dictators).

Fact-Checking 4 Biden Claims in Valley Forge Speech

Fred Lucas

January 05, 2024

President Joe Biden on Friday accused Donald Trump, his predecessor and the leading contender for the Republican presidential nomination, of wanting to be a dictator. 

Biden spoke at a community college about 15 miles east of Valley Forge, a historical site in the battleground state of Pennsylvania that Trump won in 2016 but lost in 2020 to Biden. 

The president’s remarks targeting Trump came on the eve of the third anniversary of the riot on Jan. 6, 2021, in which Trump supporters stormed the Capitol. Some were attempting to stop a joint session of Congress from certifying Biden’s defeat of Trump in the 2020 presidential election.

During the Revolutionary War, Valley Forge was an encampment for American soldiers during the cold, harsh winter of 1777-78. Gen. George Washington, commander in chief of the Continental Army, recruited a former Prussian military officer, Friedrich Wilhelm von Steuben, to reinvigorate his despairing troops for battle with the British.


Here is a look at the accuracy of some of Biden’s stronger assertions in his speech Friday, billed as the first event of his reelection campaign in the new year.


4. ‘Book Banning’

In his speech Friday, Biden brought up a talking point among Democrats who advocate that sexually explicit books be available in school libraries. 

Biden talked about “those who seek to bury history and ban books.” He asked the crowd: “Did you ever think you could be in a political event talking about book banning in a presidential election?”

Biden didn’t offer examples of anyone seeking to ban books. Democrat politicians and some interest groups, however, have used the term “book banning” regarding parents’ concern about age-appropriate books for elementary school libraries. 

The books in question include the titles “Gender Queer,” “Flamer,” “Lawn Boy,” “Fun Home,” and “It’s Perfectly Normal: Changing Bodies, Growing Up, Sex, and Sexual Health.” Critics say the books contain images of people engaged in sex acts or graphic descriptions of those acts.
