Biden to Speak with India’s Modi as U.S. Continues Pressing for Tough Stance Against Russia

Sophie Mann

President Biden will speak Monday with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi as the U.S. leader continues to encourage other world leaders to take a hardline stance against  Russia’s ongoing invasion of Ukraine.

India has thus far taken a neutral stance on the war, which has raised flags in Washington but garnered praise from Russian leaders including Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov. He recently applauded India for assessing “the situation in its entirety, not just in a one-sided way.”

Last week, India abstained in a successful United Nations Human Rights Council vote to suspend member nation Russia over allegations of war crimes in Ukraine. 

White House press secretary Jen Psaki says Biden will discuss with Modi the continued impacts of Russia’s invasion and “mitigating its destabilizing impact on global food supply and commodity markets.”

She also said the leaders, who are meeting virtually, will discuss “strengthening the global economy, and upholding a free, open, rules-based international order to bolster security, democracy, and prosperity in the Indo-Pacific.”

India has continued purchasing Russian oil and gas, despite pressure from Western allies to consider other options. Last month, India’s state run oil company purchased 3 million barrels of crude oil from Russia at what it reported to be a 20% below benchmark price discount. 

FLASHBACK: Text Messages Reveal Joe Biden and His Wife Colluded to Suppress HUNTER’S ACTIONS WITH A CERTAIN MINOR

(The Gateway Pundit first published this article on October 28, 2020 – a week before the 2020 Election.)

Yesterday we reported on former VP Joe Biden who snapped at a reporter who dared to ask him about his son Hunter.  But VP Biden can’t get out of this one.

Biden did not let WYOU reporter Andy Mehalshick get through his question before snapping during an event on Saturday.

“Questions and controversy continue today about Hunter Biden, your son,” Mehalshick began.

“There is no controversy,” he interjected. “That’s all a lie.”

“It’s a flat lie because the president has nothing else to run on.” Biden said.

Biden does not want you to believe your own eyes.

Of course, Biden is the one who is lying, as leaked emails have revealed deep levels of corruption and homemade porn of his son smoking crack with prostitutes is all over the internet.

But today we have more – much more…

Hunter Biden sent the following text to a family friend where he shares that someone is accusing him of being sexually inappropriate around her daughter.  This is why Hunter claims he is not allowed to be alone with that person:

In another text message from Hunter to a family friend, Hunter shares that his mother, Jill Biden, propagates the claims that Hunter is sexually inappropriate around the children and VP Joe Biden is aware as well:

In a text message sent to Hunter Biden from his Uncle Jim Biden, former Vice President Joe Biden’s brother, Uncle Jim shares that both he and former VP Joe Biden are upset with accusations of impropriety but they don’t believe them.  Jim and Joe Biden want to discuss with Hunter so they can all get their stories straight:

In an email to colleague and fellow board member on Burisma, the now felon Devon Archer, Hunter explains how he is not allowed to be around a certain person without his father, Joe Biden, being there:

And a fifth text message shows Hunter explaining to a certain person that her mom told former VP Joe Biden that she would call the police if Hunter tried to see that person:

These texts paint a horrible picture of what is going on behind the scenes in the Biden family.

What the hell was going on in the Biden household?  If a minor was involved, why did no one contact the police?  Why was this hidden from the public?  Was this because it would tarnish Joe’s political image?  Most importantly, is the child safe now?

VP Biden, this is no lie.  It’s not coming from President Trump.  This is not Russian disinformation.  It’s coming from your nuclear family. 

As an officer of the court, why didn’t you address this horrible and potentially criminal situation within your family?

Obama White House Doctor: Biden Having ‘Cognitive Issues’ Is A ‘National Security Issue’

Martin Walsh
April 7th, 2022

OPINION: This article may contain commentary which reflects the author’s opinion.

Texas GOP Rep. Ronny Jackson, who previously served as the White House physician under the Obama and Trump administrations, says he has concerns about President Joe Biden.

During an interview on OAN with host John Hines, Jackson slammed Biden when asked about his mental fitness for office.

“I’m not trying to make a diagnosis,” Jackson said. “But I think the whole world sees that he’s having some issues. He’s struggling cognitively. It’s not a good time to have a commander-in-chief and a head of state that’s having these particular issues. I think there’s something going on … it’s a national security issue at this particular point.”

When asked if there were “national security implications” involved, Jackson responded, “Well sure, look at what’s going on … In that position, if you have cognitive issues, it’s going to be a national security issue regardless.”

Jackson said Biden’s mental fitness for office was “dangerous” and that the president needed to be under cognitive testing “immediately.”

During an interview last month, Jackson spoke about Russia invading Ukraine and the implications it can have on the world.

Jackson said Biden needs to undergo an immediate cognitive exam because he is “not fit to be our president right now.”

“The whole country is seeing his mental cognitive issues on display for over a year now, and there’s really no question in most people’s minds that there’s something going on with him, that he’s not cognitively the same as he used to be and, in my mind, not fit to be our president right now,” Jackson said during an interview.

“Every time he gets up and talks to the American people, it’s not just the American people that are watching him speak, it’s the whole world, and that’s part of what the problem is here,” Jackson also said. “He looks tired, he looks weak, he looks confused, he’s incoherent, and it sends a message of weakness all over the world, and they’re seizing up on that,” he added.

“He’s got 40 years of tape, you can go back and look at this man, so it’s not like we don’t have anything to compare it to,” Jackson said. “You can go back and look, he’s always made gaffes, he’s always made missteps, but never like this. This is something different. These aren’t gaffes…. This is something much more serious.”

Jackson said that Biden’s mental fitness for office, or a lack thereof, “was on full display during the debacle in Afghanistan” and that it could “get more Americans killed” and “ultimately get us in a war because of his lack of leadership.”

An Inside Look At Biden’s Weird And Fake White House Studio (VIDEO)

One of the most bizarre parts of the Biden administration is the phony White House set they created.

It was used for Biden to get his booster shots, It was used by Biden to deliver a pre-recorded speech for Martin Luther King, Jr. , and it was used for a meeting with business leaders:

President Biden meets with business leaders on the debt limit

We now have an in-depth look at the fake set on video.

WATCH:

Former Trump adviser Stephen Miller gave his thoughts on why the fake White House set is being used.

Miller pointed out that being in the fake room allows Biden to read off a script easier.

A “face-on monitor” would also would be hidden from the cameras.

Sen. Grassley Unveils Explosive New Docs That ‘Undeniably’ Show Strong Links Between Biden Family and Communist China

Kyle Becker
March 29, 2022

The Biden family international corruption scandal begins to snowball towards a mountain of ‘undeniable’ evidence that the First Family is linked to communist Chinese interests.

As the Wall Street Journal reported on Monday, the federal tax investigation into Hunter Biden is “gaining momentum as prosecutors gather information from several of his associates about the sources of his foreign income.” The New York Times recently corroborated the authenticity of the reporting prior to the 2020 election that the Hunter Biden laptop and its records are, indeed, authentic. The Times’ report raised the issue of Hunter Biden’s potential criminal exposure for failing to report his actions as a foreign agent of a government under FARA requirements.

Senator Charles Grassley (R-IA) rose on the Senate floor and disclosed new documents that he promised were just a ‘taste’ of what he and his colleague Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI) have in store to demonstrate ‘undeniable’ strong links between the Biden family and the Chinese communist government.

“Today, Senator Johnson and I begin a series of speeches on our investigations into the Biden family financial deals,” Senator Grassley said. “We’ll make these presentations with two themes. First, we’ll refute and we’ll dismantle the talking points that the liberal media and our Democrat colleagues pushed onto the American people.”

“Their talking points said that our investigation over the years advanced and spread disinformation,” Grassley continued. “On November 29, 2021; May 11, 2021; March 18, 2021; December 14, 2020; December 10, 2020; October 19, 2020; and December 9, 2020, I came to the Senate floor to rebut those false charges. Now, or at least then, the liberal media and my Democrat colleagues ought to be ashamed of themselves for the outright lies that they peddled about our investigative work.”

“As a result, Senator Johnson and I did what any good investigator would do,” he said. “We gathered even more records to prove all these people wrong, which brings me to the second theme. Senator Johnson and I will produce new records to show additional connections between the Biden family and the communist Chinese regime.”

“Before we get to those records, I’m going to discuss the background of our investigation,” he continued. “We started this investigation last congress. Then, I was Chairman of the Finance Committee, and at that time, Senator Johnson was Chairman of the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee. It began in August 2019. I started at that time an inquiry into a transaction involving Hunter Biden that was reviewed by the federal government’s Committee on Foreign Investment.”

“On September 23, 2020, Senator Johnson and I released our report,” he added. “On November 18, 2020, we released our supplement to that report. Those reports were based in large part on Obama administration government records and also almost a dozen transcribed interviews of government officials. In both reports, Senator Johnson and I made financial information public that hadn’t ever been known before.”

“Our report exposed extensive financial relationships between Hunter and James Biden and Chinese nationals connected to the communist regime,” he went on. “More precisely, these were Chinese nationals connected to the Chinese government’s military and intelligence service. One of those individuals was a person by the name of Patrick Ho. According to reports, Hunter Biden said of Patrick Ho, quote, ‘I have another New York Times reporter calling about my representation of Patrick Ho.’ Then Hunter Biden says the F-word denoting ‘a spy chief of China who started a company that my partner who is worth $323 billion founded and is now missing.’ End of that quote.”

“We’ll get into more detail with respect to Patrick Ho in future speeches,” Grassley added. “We’ll do the same with Gongwen Dong [CFO of the Kam Fei Group of Hong Kong], another close associate of Hunter Biden who is connected to the Communist regime. Hunter Biden’s reference to, quote, ‘my partner,’ end quote, is an apparent reference to Ye Jianming [former chairman of the Shanghai-based CEFC China Energy]. Yi had connections to the People’s Liberation Army (PLA). Yi had a company called CEFC, which had multiple variations.”

“Today and in future speeches, Senator Johnson and I will simply refer to that company as CEFC,” he said. “Documents show that CEFC’s corporate mission was, quote, ‘to expand cooperation in international energy economy and contribute to national development,’ end of quote. Now let me emphasize that word national in that quote — national development. CEFC existed for the communist state.”

“Indeed, records show that CEFC is dedicated itself to serve China’s national energy strategy, developing national strategic reserves for oil, and now I quote, ‘partnering with centrally administered and state-owned enterprises,’ end of quote,” Grassley continued. “Records prepared by one of Hunter and James Biden’s business associates, a James Gilliar, say the following about this company’s CEFC — quote, ‘at the time China was hungry for crude, but its state-backed companies were having difficulty closing some deals abroad. The optics of China’s state-backed giants marching into a country to buy and extract oil weren’t great for central Asian politicians. This paved the way for private firms like CEFC, which can strike oil deals in Europe and the Middle East, where Chinese state-owned enterprises could bring political liabilities,’ end of quote.”

“Documents also show that CEFC, quote, ‘is building an energy storage and logistic system in Europe,’ end of quote, to connect China, Europe, and the Middle East,” he added. “You may ask why. Plainly, to serve, quote, ‘China’s ambitions to have over seas storage locations connected with world markets,’ end of quote.”

“The document further states that CEFC’s investments and their bank division has investments in the energy sector, quote, ‘which are in tandem with the government’s $4 trillion one belt, one road foreign investment program,’ end of quote,” Grassley said. “So, then CEFC operated under the guise of a private company, but for all intents and purposes, as an arm of the Chinese government.”

“Hunter Biden and James Biden served as a perfect vehicle by which the Chinese communist government could gain inroads here in the United States through CEFC and its affiliates,” he said. “And these inroads were focused on Chinese advancement into the global and U.S. energy sector. Hunter and James Biden were more than happy to go along, of course, for the right price.”

“So, now let’s turn to the first poster which shows bank records that hasn’t been made public before now,” Grassley said while standing in front of a blown-up bank record. “This is a portion of a document that we, meaning Senator Johnson and I, will release in full. The topic of this poster shows a wire transaction, August 4, 2017, from CEFC to Wells Fargo clearing services for $100,000. Now look at the bottom of the poster. This is the underlying data of this transaction. It states, quote, ‘further credit to Owasco,’ end of quote. Owasco is Hunter Biden’s [law] firm.”

“Now, there is no middle man in this transaction,” he added. “This is $100,000 of what is effectively arm of the Chinese communist government direct to Hunter Biden.”

“So, a second question,” he said. “Question to the liberal media and my Democratic colleagues who accused us over the last two years of distributing Russian disinformation. Is this official bank document Russian disinformation?”

“Now, beyond this document, in future speeches, Senator Johnson and I will show you more transfers between and among such companies as CEFC, Northern International Capital [a Hong Kong-based investment company], Hudson West III, Hunter Biden’s Owasco and James Biden’s Lion Hall group. In doing so, please keep in mind the players in this game, Hunter Biden, James Biden, Ye Jianming, Gongwen Dong, Mervyn Yan and Patrick Ho, to name a few. All of these individuals mixed and mingled with related corporate entitites over a period of years with respect to millions of dollars.”

“Now, the next poster,” Grassley said and turned to a record with a number of signatures. “Those connections are illustrated by the second poster which I made public last November. It’s an original bank record with one typographical error in all. Here you have Hunter Biden, Gongwen Dong and Mervyn Yan executing an assignment, an assumption agreement together.”

“So, now a third question to those who accuse us of disseminating ‘Russian disinformation,’ so especially to the liberal media, who are the ones who ought to be policing our government system to make sure that everything is done honest, they shouldn’t have to have members of Congress giving all this information out, but is this official record ‘Russian disinformation’?” he asked.

“In our next speeches we’ll show you more records that haven’t been seen before,” Grassley said. “Records that undeniably show strong links between Biden family and communist China. Today is just a small taste.”

Biden Says He’s Not Walking Back Comments About Putin Staying in Power, Claims it was ‘Personal Outrage,’ Not Policy (VIDEO)

Cristina Laila
March 28th, 2022

Joe Biden on Monday outlined his 2023 budget proposal to Congress with his OMB Director Shalanda Young in tow.

Biden took some questions from reporters after his remarks.

NBC’s Kelly O’Donnell asked Joe Biden if he regrets saying Russian President Vladimir Putin shouldn’t remain in power.

Joe Biden gave what the White House billed as a “major address” Saturday evening in Warsaw, Poland.

Biden closed his speech with what is either a policy change or a gaffe just like his comment on Friday to U.S. troops they were headed into Ukraine.

Biden said, “For God’s sake, this man [Putin] cannot remain in power.”

Biden’s handlers immediately went into clean up mode and ‘clarified’ Biden’s regime change remarks.

According to Axios and Washington Post, Biden’s last line calling for Putin to be taken out was not on his teleprompter.

So Dementia Joe just blurted it out and escalated tensions with a nuclear power for no good reason.

“Do you believe what you said that Putin can’t remain in power, or do you now regret saying that because your government has been trying to walk that back? Does you words complicate matters?” NBC’s Kelly O’Donnell asked Biden.

Side note: Since when is the White House a separate entity from Joe Biden?

“I’m not walking anything back,” Biden said before admitting he has no control over his emotions. “I was expressing moral outrage I felt toward the way Putin is dealing… and the actions of this man – just brutality… half the children in Ukraine — but I want to make it clear, I wasn’t then nor am I now articulating a policy change..”

Biden said he ‘makes no apologies’ for expressing his ‘personal feelings’ on Putin.

America is a non-factor on the global stage.

On Thursday Joe Biden arrived in Brussels for talks with NATO Countries on the Russian invasion of Ukraine. The meetings were mostly for show. Everyone knows NATO is not going to get involved in a war with Russia.

Joe Biden waddled through the halls barely able to walk. This is America today. From Reagan to Trump… to this smiling idiot nobody takes seriously.

Biden smiled but took no questions.

Once again, America was absent at the tables. The imposter sat in. Thank goodness the Europeans do not have to face any mean tweets or a US president demanding they pay their fair share.

Bidens Announce They Are Building a Wall – Around Their Delaware Beach House

Joe Biden has decided to build a wall, but not at the Southern border to protect the country, around his beach house in Delaware.

According to an attentive neighbor, the Bidens are requesting that they be allowed to build a bigger wall around their beach house in Delaware.

CDMedia reports:

An observant resident of Rehoboth Beach, DE, Joe Biden’s home community, brought to our attention that Jill Biden has applied for a variance from the Sussex County Planning and Zoning Commission to make the fence around their compound higher.

CDMedia has found out the fence addition will cost $500k.

Jill Biden has made the request on the wall.

The Biden’s don’t believe in walls for the rest of America.  The Southern border is wide open.  Biden stopped the building of a wall there.  Cartels and human trafficking happen every day on that border.

Microsoft Corporation Legal Documents Show Biden DOJ Spying on Project Veritas Journalists — Hides It From Federal Court Judge

 JD Rucker
 March 22, 2022

One of the reasons the 1st Amendment gives protection to the free press is because they are supposed to be one of the most important checks against a tyrannical government. Independence and protection for journalists can be argued as one of the biggest reasons the United States has flourished for a quarter millenium.

Project Veritas has been targeted by our government on multiple occasions they do not abide by the standing orders given to journalists that they must be supportive of progressive ideologies. While most major news outlets pander to the left willingly, offering cover for corrupt Democrats while seeking dirt on conservatives, Project Veritas has taken a stand for the truth. It’s no secret that they expose leftists more than conservatives, but that’s only because the field is wide open; none of the other investigative journalist groups or “fact-checkers” even attempt to expose corruption from the left.

The latest bombshell report from Project Veritas exposes Joe Biden’s Department of Justice and others colluding to deprive private citizens of their Constitutional rights, including several people with Project Veritas itself. Watch:

According to their press release:

  • Microsoft Corporation legal documents obtained by Project Veritas show that after a U.S. District Court Judge rejected the DOJ’s argument to ignore Project Veritas’ “journalistic privileges,” the DOJ went behind the judge’s back to obtain an extension on two sealed non-disclosure orders from a magistrate judge to conceal the fact they already had unsupervised and unfettered access to privileged emails and contacts of eight Project Veritas journalists.
  • Judge Torres had ruled that prosecutors must operate under the supervision of a Special Master to ensure first amendment protections are upheld for Project Veritas journalists and their source material.
  • These documents reveal that the government not only ignored that order, but also attempted to hide the fact they had obtained emails for time periods far outside the scope of the investigation.

[NEW YORK – Mar. 21, 2022] Bombshell Microsoft Corporation legal documents released by Project Veritas reveal that President Biden’s Department of Justice filed a series of secret warrants, orders, and a subpoena to surreptitiously collect privileged, and constitutionally protected, communications and contacts of eight Project Veritas journalists from Microsoft Corporation.

The Department of Justice then muzzled Microsoft from disclosing these orders via a series of secrecy orders signed by magistrates.

The documents further reveal the DOJ then went behind U.S. District Court Judge, Analisa Torres’, back to obtain extensions on the gag-orders on Microsoft from magistrate judges after Judge Torres ruled Project Veritas was entitled to “journalistic privileges.”

Despite multiple opportunities to do so, the DOJ has not publicly disclosed the orders, warrants, or subpoenas to Judge Torres or Special Master Judge Barbara Jones – who was appointed by Judge Torres to protect Veritas’ “journalistic privileges” from potential DOJ overreach. Judge Torres ruled that the DOJ’s investigation must be overseen by Judge Jones and ordered the DOJ not to review any materials seized from Project Veritas without Judge Jones’ approval.

The DOJ has not sought Judge Jones’ approval to review Project Veritas’ materials seized from Microsoft.

The documents uncover a sixteen-month clandestine campaign against journalists in which the DOJ obtained 7 secret orders, warrants and subpoenas from six magistrates within the Southern District of New York.

Paul Calli, an attorney for Project Veritas, fiercely opposed the actions from the DOJ which he called an act of “violence” to the First Amendment.

In a motion filed Tuesday, Calli argued, “By the time [Project Veritas] filed the Motion to Appoint a Special Master, the government already had the opportunity to review Project Veritas’ journalistic and attorney-client privileged materials.” Based on preliminary research data, the SDNY appears to be in possession of nearly 150K documents they should not have. In addition to the emails, the SDNY obtained over one thousand contacts from journalists that they also failed to disclose to Judge Torres or to the Special Master.

Project Veritas’ Motion seeks to require the SDNY to comply with the Special Master order by stopping their review of the surreptitiously obtained emails and disclose other hidden spying campaigns executed against the non-profit’s journalists.  The SDNY “has launched a retributive campaign that does violence to the First Amendment,” writes Calli.  “While the Special Master litigation proceeded, the government apparently misled the Court by omission, failing to inform it, and failing to inform the aggrieved journalists, that the government had already obtained the contents of privileged emails from Project Veritas’ cloud computing provider.”

The documents reveal a peak into the SDNY’s covert surveillance of American journalists, commenced by Assistant United States Attorney, Robert B. Sobelman.

The surveillance culminated in a search warrant seeking every email sent to or from Project Veritas founder and CEO, James O’Keefe, for a three-month period, along with every contact he had ever saved.  By virtue of these orders, the SDNY gained unsupervised and unfettered access to O’Keefe’s emails – including privileged communications with his attorneys and notes to and from O’Keefe’s confidential sources, among other constitutionally protected communications.

The SDNY also managed to convince a rotating cadre of magistrates to give the SDNY unchecked access to seven other journalists’ emails and contacts.

According to an order the DOJ sought to keep secret, to justify obtaining access to journalists’ emails, the Justice Department appears to have argued “there is probable cause to believe the email account(s), maintained at premises controlled by Microsoft Corporation, USA, contain evidence, fruits, and instrumentalities of crime.”

Each order, warrant and subpoena were accompanied by a Non-Disclosure Orders (NDO) which barred Microsoft from disclosing the SDNY’s surveillance for one year, claiming without evidence, that disclosure could lead to destruction of evidence by Project Veritas.  Multiple NDOs were set to expire in January, 2022.

On December 8, 2021, however, Judge Torres, over the opposition of the SDNY, granted Project Veritas’ request to appoint a Special Master to supervise the SDNY’s review of materials seized from journalists to protect the news organization’s “journalistic privileges,” among other things.

Judge Torres ordered the SDNY to provide the seized “materials to the Special Master” Judge Barbara Jones who, rather than the SDNY, would “conduct an initial review of the extracted materials,” and rule on “objections” raised by Project Veritas “on any grounds – including on grounds related to any First Amendment concerns, journalistic concerns, and attorney-client privileges.”

Although the SDNY began issuing nearly weekly reports to the Special Master only a few days after Judge Torres’ order, the SDNY has never submitted any report disclosing its surveillance of Project Veritas’ emails to the Special Master, let alone provided the seized emails to the Special Master.  The SDNY’s briefings submitted to Judge Torres regarding the Special Master procedure also fail to disclose the SDNY’s covert spying or the voluminous records seized by the SDNY.

When a round of the SDNY’s NDOs requiring the spying to be kept secret began expiring in January 2022, the SDNY, having had their arguments rejected two out of two times by Judge Torres, apparently opted to again keep the surveillance of journalists secret from Judge Torres and instead obtained renewals of those orders from Magistrates who were apparently unaware of Judge Torres’ order.

The SDNY’s final act of secrecy was seeking yet another round of renewals, prompting Microsoft to point out in a scathing un-filed motion that the government’s claims that Project Veritas might destroy evidence if the surveillance were disclosed were unsupportable.

Microsoft pointed out that the DOJ’s investigation was already public and no proof that Project Veritas would destroy evidence had been offered by the SDNY.  As a result of Microsoft’s briefing, the SDNY relented and permitted Microsoft to disclose the surveillance, which Microsoft did within hours.

These revelations come on the heels of a trio of FBI raids of Project Veritas journalists, including O’Keefe, during which the SDNY indiscriminately seized 47 devices (including a device belonging to a journalist’s roommate).

The SDNY’s spying campaign represents the latest example of governmental misconduct in a seemingly politically-motivated investigation by President Biden’s Department of Justice into Project Veritas’ news-gathering activities surrounding allegations against then-candidate, Joe Biden, made by his daughter, Ashley Biden, in her diary.

Though Project Veritas ultimately did not publish the allegations in the diary, it attempted to corroborate the allegations by requesting comment from Mr. Biden and his daughter, whose attorney, Roberta Kaplan, reacted by saying, “We should send [the request for comment] to [the] SDNY.”  The SDNY appears to have been doing Ms. Biden’s bidding ever since with little to no oversight beyond what appear to be judicial rubber-stamps from magistrates not fully briefed on the matter by the SDNY.

Why the Biden Administration’s Department of Justice sought voluminous amounts of journalists’ emails, including confidential sources and attorney-client privileged data from Microsoft despite vowing a year ago to protect press freedom, is one of many questions the Biden Administration will likely have to answer in the coming days.

Scientists Discover 330-Million-Year-Old Fossil, Name New Species After Joe Biden

CULLEN MCCUE
 March 22, 2022

Scientists have discovered what is believed to be the oldest ancestor of the octopus species after a 330 million-year-old fossil of a ten-armed squid was discovered. The researchers who discovered the fossil decided to name the prehistoric species after Joe Biden.

Scientists named the animal Syllipsimopodi bideni, derived from the Greek words “syllípsimos” for “prehensile” and “pódi” for “foot,” along with “bideni” after President Biden, according to a report from Forbes. The animal lives 330 million years ago in what is now Montana, and is believed to be the earliest known relative of octopuses and vampire squid.

It is the first and only known vampyropod to possess 10 functional appendages,” said lead author Christopher Whalen, a researcher at the American Museum of Natural History and Yale University. According to Whalen, the newly discovered fossil is 82 million years older than the earliest known animal from the group. That is more time separating the species from humans than the Tyrannosaurus rex.
