President Biden will pardon all prior federal offenses of simple marijuana possession, the White House said Thursday.

The move applies to those convicted of simple possession of marijuana, including those in the District of Columbia, according to senior officials. 

Sufficient evidence has reportedly been gathered against Joe Biden’s son Hunter to bring federal charges against him for tax crimes and false statements related to an illegal gun purchase, according to the Washington Post.

In response to the announced production cut of two million barrels of oil daily by OPEC+ nations on Wednesday to stabilize prices and maintain them above production costs, a White House statement roared disapproval, saying:

The move will “have the most negative impact on lower-and middle-income countries” — ones hegemon USA and its Western vassals exploit by plundering their resources and immiserating their people.

In response, dominant Biden regime hardliners in cahoots with their congressional co-conspirators will retaliate in their customary heavy-handed ways.

During an online conference at Australia's Lowy Institute, Ukraine's Volodymyr Zelensky called on NATO to carry out "preventive nuclear strikes" on Russia in order to "deter" Moscow from using nukes.

The United States has fast-tracked hundreds of millions of dollars worth of private weapons sales to Ukraine since the beginning of Russia’s special military operation in February, The New York Times reported on Thursday.

President Joe Biden tore into 'MAGA Republicans' and their 'extreme agenda' after a court ruled a program protecting millions of migrants from deportation is unlawful.

Joe Biden has warned members of his task force on abortion access to beware of Republicans ‘extreme’ policies on the procedure.

A Reproductive Rights Task Force meeting was held on Tuesday, roughly 100 days since the overturning of the Roe v. Wade. There, Biden warned blue state residents that they should be worried if Republicans win in this year’s midterm elections.
