Joe Biden mumbled and fumbled through a FEMA meeting, again revealing that there really isn’t much going on in his dusty old brain, according to The Western Journal.
The meeting was held in part to discuss doubling funding in preparation for the busiest time of the year for disasters in America,” referring to hurricanes and wildfires.
Biden claimed that funding is “going to help communities, including those too often overlooked, and it’s going to invest in resilience and better protect themselves to serve for other climate events that we’re going to be facing.”
Joe Biden gets lost reading his notes, makes no sense:

“There’s help is — we — there, you know, being there to help clear roads, rebuild main streets, and so that the families can get back to their lives, uh — that’s what FEMA does every single day.”
Among other issues, Biden has been associating with South Korean President Moon Jae-in as North Korea has shown indications of becoming more of an imminent threat.
Intelligence has revealed that Pyongyang is getting closer to making a nuclear-armed ICBM that could have the capacity to hit the U.S. mainland.

“This includes everything from strengthening our cybersecurity to deepening our cooperation to build out an open secure G5 network — 5G network, I should say. I’m talking about the G-5, that’s another organization,” Biden stated.
“I’m thinking organization, Mr. President — to secure the 5G networks.”
From The Western Journal:
Second, it was a good opportunity to highlight Biden’s aggressive pitch on climate change spending. (Or is it the “climate crisis” now? Are we still calling it that?)
Biden just signed an executive order directing federal agencies to assess financial risks to the public and private sector. He didn’t put too fine a point on that during his brief opening remarks on Monday, but he did make note of how the funding is “going to help communities, including those too often overlooked, and it’s going to invest in resilience and better protect themselves to serve for other climate events that we’re going to be facing.”
And when I say these remarks were brief, we’re talking eighth-grade essay brief. If you stumbled reading something like this to the class when it came your turn to present, you’d get marked down to a B-.
For the uninitiated, the G-5 is a group of five emerging world economies: Brazil, China, India, Mexico and South Africa. Think of it as a shadow G-7, the international group of industrialized economies: the United States, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, and the United Kingdom. It has nothing to do with 5G, which is the wireless infrastructure we’re apparently working tirelessly with Seoul to secure.
During another part of Friday’s ceremonies, Biden awarded the Medal of Honor to 94-year-old Korean War veteran Ralph Puckett, according to the New York Post.
Unfortunately, South Korea doesn’t have a prime minister, it has a president: Moon Jae-in.
Also unfortunately, both of these mistakes on Friday happened while the White House workplace gaffe counter was at zero due, all to a similar error Biden made during a speech announcing Thursday’s cease-fire between Israel and Hamas, when he referred to Israeli leader Benjamin Netanyahu’s job title incorrectly.
Netanyahu is, of course, the prime minister of Israel, not the president. Biden got that fact mostly right during the rest of the speech — but the speech lasted 3:21.
What’s most worrying about the FEMA and Netanyahu gaffes is that they came during prepared remarks of remarkable brevity. There was no improvisation, no question that caught Biden off guard, nothing like that.
On Thursday, there was a teleprompter. On Monday, there was a piece of paper. In those controlled hothouse conditions, we got “President Netanyahu” and “uh, there’s, you know, there’s to be, you know, beginning, uh, this effort for 2021 is, uh — I think we’ve learned a few lessons from the last year, as well.”
