Have we confirmed there's an earpiece?
Some tech-savvy people should do an EM spectrum scan whenever Joe is in public . . .

(Wouldn't it be a hoot to find the frequency and have someone else put words in Joe's mouth?  >:D )
Trump won in 2016. Democrats haven't been so offended since Republicans came along and freed their slaves.

Or just jam the signal.

If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.

Yeah, like, how do you know, normal Joe vs. earbud Joe?

Not that I'd heard.  I'm guessing there'd be other, much more discreet, methods of piping hints to Joe.   Bone conduction?  Or "that's a hearing aide, like Ronald Reagan had."

Maybe a wi-fi speaker inside his empty skull.

I think Ol' Joe is more of a "two tin cans and a string" kind of guy.  His head counts as a tin can.

Headline I saw this morning " Democrats want Biden to be the Dictator they said Trump was".

Another  article I read was about a little unnoticed EO that will unleash the regulatory state, streamlining their ability to regulate without oversight, "Modernizing regulatory review".

Better buckle up, going to get rough.

Up to 40 EOs in 9 days, and still signing away.

I will laugh if we are lucky enough to get another non-establishment R in 2024 or 2028, who immediately signs an equal number of EOs cancelling 46's EOs, then doubles down and signs like 50 more to push his agenda. Same with court packing. If 46 puts in 5 new justices, then the new guy puts in 10.

We can still have some fun while the Republic crumbles.

Have you ever watched an old movie called "The President's Analyst"?  >:D

So I’m wondering, is Joe making his mark via EO’s before something happens, like him stepping down, or something more sinister?  Something smells fishy...

Or am I buying into the conspiracy theory junk?

It isn't "conspiracy" if it ends up happening.  That might be "precognition" (aka "Minority Report") or just realizing how despicable and treacherous these people have shown themselves to be.

IIRC, it is now over 40.

At some point, he's going to issue an executive order for which he has no authority - maybe he already has - and the level of political rhetoric will be notched up another level or two.

Oh, come on.   Who hasn't thought the D.s have had some plot in the works, since at least the disaster of a primary season and convention?
