Joe Biden President Joe Biden suffered yet another brain freeze Friday, appearing to forget the name of Xavier Becerra, his Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).
The embarrassing moment came as Biden called on Becerra to join him during the signing of the White House’s new competition executive order. The president seemingly could only recall his HHS secretary’s first name, Xavier, and moved on quickly to pay him a compliment about a recent media appearance.
“Mr. Secretary, I’ve been watching you on television, you’ve been really good,” he said, to laughs from members of the audience.

The HHS secretary contended that it is “absolutely” the federal government’s business to know who is vaccinated, saying “trillions of dollars” of tax-payer money has been spent to protect Americans.
Friday’s incident is not the first time Biden has forgotten the name of a Cabinet member. In March, Biden struggled to name his Defense Secretary, Lloyd Austin, during an event marking International Women’s Day.
“I want to thank you both, and I want to thank the sec… the former general, I keep calling him general but my… my, uh… the guy who runs that outfit over there,” Biden said as he concluded his speech.
Biden’s speaking errors have long caused concern from Republicans, chief among them, Rep. Ronny Jackson (R-TX), who served as Physician to the President under Barack Obama and Donald Trump. Jackson and several other House Republicans have called on Biden to undergo a cognitive assessment following his June trip to Europe, citing his “mental decline and forgetfulness [that] have become more apparent over the past eighteen months.”
Biden has not publicly responded to the request.

Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
