Welcome to the RedState Weekly Briefing  — where we take a quick look at the week’s most viewed stories in case you missed any of them.

#1 – WATCH: ASU Senior Is Triggered After Learning Her Arrest During Pro-Hamas Protests Has Consequences — by Becca Lower

Reporter Ben Brown from Phoenix’s ABC affiliate, while reporting on the legal fallout from the protests, interviewed one senior who is triggered because she’s just learned that there are consequences for one’s actions.

Notice how she repeats “the cause” several times, without sharing much detail on this oh-so-important movement that she’s willing to throw away her future for. This attitude reminds me of a recent piece by RedState’s Brandon Morse; he pointed out that based on the naive answers these student revolutionary wannabes gave, so many of them just glommed onto the protests out of a desire for community, while not truly understanding what they’re truly supporting.

#2 – Joe Biden Just Committed an Impeachable Offense, and Donald Trump Might Have Something to Say About It — by Bonchie

In other words, Biden just committed an impeachable offense. Congress appropriated that aid to Israel. He doesn’t get to delay it in an attempt to smooth over his political misfortunes at home. How do I know that? Because that’s the standard Democrats set with their first impeachment of Donald Trump. 

The former president was impeached and given a trial in the Senate in early 2020 based on the idea that he had held up an aid package to Ukraine in an attempt to benefit politically (in this case, investigating Biden family corruption in the country). There is no tangible difference between that and what Biden is doing with this aid to Israel. Congress appropriated the money, and it is being held up by the president to benefit him politically.

#3 – Biden’s Handler Messes Up and Fails to Cover Him As His Stilted Walk to Helicopter Is Exposed — by Nick Arama

But there’s only so much they can do with the failed product they’re trying to sell. You can’t cover him every minute and you can only spin so much. And it looks like they failed a bit on Friday evening as he headed out to Marine One, on the way to yet another weekend vacation in Wilmington.

According to reports, they’re supposed to be walking with him to prevent the media from being able to focus on his bad gait that makes him look like he’s ancient. It has the side benefits of showing Biden where to go and preventing him from talking with reporters. 

But the handler walking with him made a mistake; she fell down on her duty. She walked initially on the left side, not the right side, so she wasn’t preventing the media from seeing Biden and the media got a good look at just how bad his stilted walk is. Check out the right leg, and the robotic, stilted walk to the helicopter.

#4 – Joe Biden’s Medal of Freedom Ceremony Goes South As His Brain Fries and He Slurs Uncontrollably — by Bonchie 

How could he get any worse, you might be asking? Well, ask and you shall receive because the end of the ceremony took things to another level. Biden misidentified the medal he was giving out twice in the span of a few minutes.

No worries. He’s fine. It’s fine. He doesn’t know what medal he’s giving out at a ceremony specifically designated to giving out a specific medal. We are assured, though, that he’s so mentally fit he runs laps around his staff. What does that say about his handlers?

#5 – Joe Biden’s Insane Interview With Erin Burnett Should Be the Final Straw for American Voters — by Bonchie

It’s cliche to call something astonishing, but it’s truly mind-blowing to see a U.S. president side with a terrorist group over a multi-generational ally. Never mind that Hamas continues to attack and is still holding dozens of hostages, including some Americans. Yet, Biden has decided he doesn’t care about any of that, instead choosing to prioritize his electoral prospects (and committing an impeachable offense in the process).

Do you know what you call someone who throws an ally to the wolves for cheap personal gain? You call them evil, and Biden is just that. He’s also a moral coward who is so terrified of his own shadow that he can’t even speak clearly about genocidal maniacs.
