CNN Praises Biden’s Maui Speech Where He Compared Historic Fire To Small Kitchen Fire | Eastern North Carolina Now

    CNN climate reporter Bill Weir gushed over President Joe Biden's remarks this week in Maui where he compared the worst fire the U.S. has experienced in over 100 years to a small kitchen fire at his home nearly two decades ago.

    The Maui wildfires earlier this month killed well over 100 people, with more than 1,000 still unaccounted for, and destroyed nearly 3,000 structures, according to state and local officials.

    "President and Dr. Biden spent several hours both over Lahaina on the ground here and meeting with both first responders and victims of this tragedy at the big shelter, the War Memorial shelter in central Maui," Weir began.


    Weir said that Biden "said the right things in many cases when he came to the microphone to give his statements," later adding that he "did serve as empathizer-in-chief after five days of being mostly silent on the issue publicly."

    Biden, who faced intense criticism early on for vacationing and seemingly not taking a personal interest in the tragedy, visited the island on Monday and generated more controversy with his remarks.

    Biden landed himself in hot water when he compared the fire to a fire at his home in the early 2000s that the Associated Press said at the time was "small" and "contained to the kitchen." The Delaware fire chief said they got to the home quickly, and the situation was under control in a matter of minutes.

    "I don't want to compare difficulties, but we have a little sense, Jill and I, what it's like to lose a home," Biden said. "Years ago - now 15 years ago - I was in Washington doing 'Meet the Press.' It was a sunny Sunday, and lightning struck at home on a little lake that's outside of our home - not a lake, a big pond - and hit a wire and came up underneath our home into the heating ducts - the air conditioning ducts."

    "To make a long story short, I almost lost my wife, my '67 Corvette, and my cat," he continued. "But all kidding aside, I watched the firefighters, the way they responded."

    Biden said firefighters ran into the "flames" in his home "to save my wife and save my family. Not a joke."


    "The smoke - and the firefighters here can tell you - sometimes smoke is so thick. From the windows out, it was that thick inside the home. And we were - we were insured. We did not have any problem, but being out of our home for a better part of a year was difficult," Biden added. "I can only imagine what it's like to lose your home completely burned to the ground."

Considering what real news is available for all to witness, and in great specificity, should one pursue what is true outside of the channeled realm of the corrupt corporate /legacy media, and: Is Institutionalized Corruption real, and is it a hindrance to sustaining our Constitutional Republic now, and for future generations of American citizens?

Since only about 20% of the News Media has any shred of Journalistic Integrity remaining: How does our Constitutional Republic continue without a "Free Press"?
  Demand real information, using real sources, backed up by facts.
  Promote real journalist entities only, and admonish those that prostitute their profession.
  We Democratic Socialists are doing just fine, thank-you, by promoting lies while having very little real knowledge about so much.

Considering what has happened to our Representative Republic since the corruptive orthodoxy that led to the tolerated abomination - The Russia Hoax - where felonies were perpetrated upon the American People by the creation of the Two Tiered Justice System, in the misnomer of "Social Justice:" Where do you stand on sustaining our constitutionally guaranteed freedoms in a society where injustice is chronically sanctioned by one political orthodoxy?
  I believe in a perfected society by employing a higher governmental authority to train the behavior of the public.
  The United States Constitution does not allow just a few freedoms, it guarantees ALL freedoms promised to Humankind by God.
  Just don't take away my Social Media.

This is part and parcel what Institutional Corruption looks like: The Corrupt Corporate Media trotting out fake journalists to advocate stupidity to stupid people, and, sadly, to far too many that do not know better, but should.

The 1st Amendment of the US Constitution guarantees a "Free Press;" it does not guarantee a smart press or an honest one.

The Non Patriot Left knows this to their core, and that may one of the reasons that they are so intent in destroying our public education now, and for far too long a time.
