Biden gives remarks in Anchorage

Warriors stood and sat at attention while the Commander-in-Chief read remarks from a teleprompter on Monday, with the snow-capped Chugach mountain range in the background at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson.

President Joe Biden read words from a screen pertaining to heroism and history to an audience that included U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken, U.S. Special Presidential Envoy for Climate John Kerry, Gov. Mike Dunleavy, and Alaska Rep. Mary Peltola. Also attending and greeting the president’s arrival was Anchorage Mayor Dave Bronson.

Biden’s visit included stopping for jet fuel and observing the anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on America. He is returning from a visit to Vietnam.

None of the veterans from the Alaska House of Representatives were invited, but invitations were sent to Democrat Party, non-military elected representatives, such as Rep. Jesse Kiehl of Juneau, Cliff Groh of Anchorage, and Ashley Carrick of Fairbanks. Veteran legislators Will Stapp, Stanley Wright, Laddie Shaw, Kevin McCabe, Ben Carpenter, and Jamie Allard were snubbed by the White House. All are Republicans. It’s unclear if Rep. Andrew Gray, a Democrat, received an invitation; he serves in the Army National Guard.

One legislator who is a veteran said he would not have attended anyway, after watching Biden’s speech in Vietnam, which was marked by incoherence, and the statement that he was just following orders from his staff.

  1. Nothing is sacred to this man. Not even following the honored tradition of remembering the 2977 lives lost and expressing gratitude, in person, to their families. How many times did he check his watch? As many times as memorializing the soldiers killed in his Afghanistan debacle? Disgraceful.

  2. And somehow, this tone deaf ignorant ass “visiting” was reason to shut down the airport all day as well. Pretty bold of him to shut down oil production and commerce just so he can snub actual heroes.

  3. Your story should be titled Alaska takes one for the team, Biden here for 9/11.

    Then, it should state as a gift to 9/11 families and gold star families, FJBiden is in Alaska so he won’t insult and offend them with his presence and by checking his watch continually during the 9/11 ceremonies.

    It is unclear whether he got a picture sitting on some cannons with Hanoi Jane while in Hanoi on his pre 9/11 commie trip.

    We did notice that the country is running better without his and his teams’ presence.

    He doesn’t know where he is anyway.

  4. After what Biden has done to Alaska and add in this headline “Biden admin hands $6,000,000,000 to terror sponsor Iran for hostages, in deal announced on 9/11” Those who attended today should be ashamed.

  5. I was there under orders from above. You should have seen the eye rolling and mumbling about this fool trying to speak from those listening. In my 26 years of service, I have never felt ashamed of a leader more than I do of this one, and he even beats out #44 in that time. Please get don’t reelect (dominion select) him let’s get rid of him and his VP soon!

    • AKNDAN, you have my sympathies.

      I can just imagine Dear Leader Potato trying to read the speech prewritten by his handlers:

      “My fellow Ukrainians, on this historic anniversary of December 11th, marking the attack on Gettysburg by the Russians, I ask you all to remember that we can only save our Democrazy by rooting out every far right extremist and all others who do not automatically bow to the glorious globalist agenda, with equity and gender confusion for all.”

  6. Leave it to Joe Biden and his administration to make a national tragedy into a partisan event.
    It is unforgivable and disrespectful not to invite those who served, especially considering that this event was held at a military facility. An invitation should have been extended to all, regardless of party affiliation.
    At least Mary Peltola surfaced….maybe she is hoping to hitch a ride back to Washington!

  7. JBER should have refused to refill the plane and leave it sit there. Especially since FJB and Kerry are so totally opposed to fossil fuels and carbon emissions. FJB and Kerry should have to demonstrate their commitment to their rhetoric. The plane is being filled with with gas/fossil fuels. FJB and Kerry should have to take an EV back to DC, preferably one of the pothole filler size.

  8. Nothing beats having the fake xxx in Anchorage. If you watched the fake inauguration and know they did not follow standard military protocol and how certain military members turned their back to him you are way ahead of the other half of voters

  9. It must have pained Bronson and Dunleavy to be there, listening to an old pervert and crooked president address the troops on a national day of rememberance. Did Biden even know he was back on US soil?

  10. I am appalled at the utter hypocrisy, stupidity, and arrogance of the hair-sniffer in chief. Not often is Rich speechless, but the thoughts in my head aren’t printable…

  11. Kudos to Resident Biden for staying about as far from the actual site of the attacks as possible while still remaining on US soil. He knows that he doesn’t belong anywhere near where heroes sacrificed everything. And the military make fantastic audiences because they have no choice but to follow orders or be punished. Hopefully there was an adequate supply of air sickness bags or, maybe, the higher ups anticipated by canceling the foregoing meal. It definitely takes a strong constitution to stomach listening to that idiot speak.

  12. I’m in complete agreement with FJB and Hanoi extraterrestrial Kerry’s comments. Envoy for Climate John Kerry, Peltola and any other anti-hydrocarbon zealots in attendance should never be allowed to refuel let alone land their aircraft here while, at the same time, voting against oil and gas development in Alaska and other oil-producing states in the nation. Labeling them “hypocrites” would be too good for them. Maybe throw ’em in a battery powered airplane with a suicidal pilot and let them use their magical unicorn powers to get to their next destination. Or maybe Kerry could have pumped Air Farce 1 full of Heinz ketchup or the beer that his wife used to grab armfuls of during stops in his failed presidential campaign. Regardless, I feel for the soldiers who were forced to attend such a farcical event.

  13. And Biden had to mention in his remarks that he and Governor Dunleavy were both from Scranton. It must have pained the governor to hear that after Biden cancelled the Anwar state leases. Come to think of it, Dunleavy didn’t look all that pleased. It’s amazing to think of how much jet fuel Kerry and Biden have burned while denying the rest of us simple trips to the grocery store and food at reasonable prices. All because they refuse to see how restricting fuel availability means higher transportation prices for anything we eat for us serfs. Shameful.

  14. MRA should have acknowledge the stamina of Biden who gave a speech following a 14-hour flight to India, a G20 Summit, a 4-hour flight to Hanoi, a press conference, and a 10-hour flight to Alaska, all of that in 5 days. I’m pretty sure most of the people here, including the lead author, will complain about jet lag after the 2nd day!

    • Oh please all us “regular people” fly commercial, crammed into a tiny seat. Air Force One has much better accommodation and comforts including nice sleeping facilities, staff to bring you a hot chocolate and comfy sheets. It’s like a home in the sky. Why should we acknowledge his “stamina” when all his predecessor did the same and all including you expected them to be on their best game wherever they appeared. If he is too old for the rigors of the job, he needs to resign!

    • I guess the presence of a king sized bed, shower, and other amenities have no bearing on the stamina of the pResident.
      I am sure you would have remember that Air Force One is basically a five star hotel with wings if President Trump was on board.

  15. I never realized the depth and sincerity of Joey’s military service nor the extent of his personal sacrifice. What was his rank? At least a Lt. Colonel, certainly. If anyone can inspire our Nation, it is Joey.

    Gosh, and I thought the the language was “ know the thing…”. That lingo about being endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, sounds so stuffy.

    Double dose of Aricept today.

  16. How not every single one of those soldiers in attendance of this performance was able to refrain from shouting out “You lie!”, or some other truthful disparagement of this sociopath and usurper, is utterly beyond me.

  17. I enjoyed ever second of it. Especially when he said, “the wheels came off the canoe because a doghouse can fit 47 pancakes.”
    That really spoke to me. The man is a true genius when it comes to that thing.

  18. U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken: I heard in a Mike Adams report for today (9/13/2023) that Anthony Blinken was supposedly planning with Hillary Clinton’s regime that if she had won the election in 2016, they’d get a nuclear war started. I find it concerning to see Blinken, Kerry, Pete Buttigieg, and other White House Regime all made a point to come to Alaska in a short span of time this summer. Makes me wonder if we’ll be the ones that get hit by a nuclear weapon (compliments of our own illegal gov’t) as a false flag event trying to blame Russia?
