President Joe Biden charged in a prime-time address Thursday that the “extreme ideology” of Donald Trump and his adherents “threatens the very foundation of our republic,” as he summoned Americans to help counter what he sketched as dark forces within the Republican Party trying to subvert democracy.

In his speech at Philadelphia’s Independence Hall, Biden unleashed the trappings of the presidency in a sweeping attack on Trump and what he said has become the dominant strain of the opposition party. His broadside came barely two months before Americans head to the polls in bitterly contested midterm elections that Biden calls a crossroads for the nation.

“We must be honest with each other and with ourselves,” Biden said. “Too much of what’s happening in our country today is not normal. Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans represent an extremism that threatens the very foundations of our republic.”

Biden said the GOP is “dominated, driven and intimidated by Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans. And that is a threat to this country. These are hard things. But I’m an American president, not a president of red America or blue America, but of all America.”

“MAGA Republicans do not respect the Constitution. They do not believe in the rule of law. They do not recognize the will of the people. They refuse to accept the results of a free election. And they’re working right now, as I speak in state after state, to give the power to decide elections in America to partisans and cronies, empowering election-deniers to undermine democracy itself.

“MAGA forces are determined to take this country backwards. Backwards to an America where there is no right to choose, no right to privacy, no right to contraception, no right to marry who you love. They promote authoritarian leaders and they fan the flames of political violence that are a threat to our personal rights, to the pursuit of justice, to the rule of law, to the very soul of this country.

“They look at the mob that stormed the United States Capitol on January 6th – brutally attacking law enforcement – not as insurrectionists, who placed a dagger at the throat of our democracy, but they look at them as patriots and they see their MAGA failure to stop a peaceful transfer of power after the 2020 election as preparation for the 2022 and 2024 elections. They tried everything last time to nullify the votes of 81 million people. This time, they’re determined to succeed in thwarting the will of the people.

““MAGA Republicans have made their choice. They embrace anger, they thrive on chaos. They live not in the light of truth, but in the shadow of lies.”

  1. ““MAGA Republicans have made their choice. They embrace anger, they thrive on chaos. They live not in the light of truth, but in the shadow of lies.”

    Uh… Look whose talking. And I despise Trump!

  2. “threatens the very foundation of our republic,” means sleepy joe who is a wicked filthy thief & burglar for having stolen the 2020 election from President Donald Trump שליט”א who definitely was duly reelected.
    This speech was so sickening to the its very core, delivered by a sick & corrupted piece of meat.

  3. What a hateful, vicious person he is. And it’s not the senility talking; he was like this before it set in. He was always stupid (“Slow Joe”), and he was always nasty. Everything he said is true about himself and his own Democrat Party, which holds the constitution in utter contempt, and routinely engages in political violence while blaming its victims if they occasionally dare to fight back.

  4. Joe is a uniter. Joe is a unifier. His outpouring of love and togetherness really shined forth in his speech. Such a positive uplifting hopeful message he left the Nation with. Joe has truly brought civility back to Washington. Joe is a natural born leader. Hopefully all those 70+ million deplorables that voted for the white racist Trump will leave this country asap.

  5. Senile Joe is just acting like Hitler did.
    Who wants an of man in the White House who, indeed, set America back close to a major recession when he belongs in a nursing home.
    I’m not a Trump fan but he did make strides to move our country forward.
    For one thing look at the price of gas. Under Republican rule the cost of gas was in the low $2.00 range. After Biden took over the price of gas more than doubled to around $5.00 because he both closed the pipeline and stopped domestic exploration. True, the price has come down somewhat but the damage has been done.
    Now he is going to sign a new Iran deal that will fund the terrorists with somewhere in the area of a trillion dollars so they can go nuclear and destroy Israel and other pro western countries.
    His speech is a redo of how the Democrats manipulated the 2020 elections.
    It’s amazing how an anti-semite like Biden and his cronies can manipulate many, many Jewish people as well as people in their graves to vote for him just to mess up our beloved country.

  6. Embrace anger? Thrive on chaos? Was Biden paying attention when BLM was burning down cities, looting stores and terrorizing whites in restaurants? Or was he napping?
