“On the Holmes Front,” with Frank Holmes
When 78-year-old Joe Biden became the oldest president in U.S. history, some warned it wouldn’t be long before someone would take his place in the Oval Office.
As it turns out, critics were right; he’s already been replaced — and he hasn’t even left office yet.
Vice President Kamala Harris, Obama insider Susan Rice, and a swarm of unnamed Beltway operatives have taken over so much of the president’s powers, critics have started to wonder out loud if Joe Biden is already nothing more than a figurehead in his own administration.

Take Kamala Harris, who has usurped the traditional presidential role of representing the United States with foreign heads of state.
Harris spoke with the president of France, Emmanuel Macron, on Monday, where she “expressed her commitment to strengthening bilateral ties between the United States and France” and “thanked President Macron for his leadership on the issue of gender equality.”
Foreign policy is the president’s job, unless he’s not up to it—or he’s no longer president.
What’s more, the White House is not exactly hiding it. The news came in an official White House press release—and Harris tweeted about it the same day.
Today I spoke with President @EmmanuelMacron of France. We discussed COVID-19, climate change, supporting democracy at home and around the world, and regional challenges. @POTUS and I look forward to working with President Macron to build a better future for our two countries. pic.twitter.com/H04Y3LbU0a

And just a month into the Biden administration, this wasn’t the first time she’s taken over his job: She spoke with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on January 22.
Of course, the mainstream media haven’t said a peep about things. That’s a far cry from how they handled former President George W. Bush’s administration, where they regularly claimed that former Vice President Dick Cheney really ran the show.

Now, they say nothing even though Joe Biden isn’t even going through the motions! In fact, White House press secretary Jen Psaki said Biden won’t meet with any foreign leaders for at least “a couple of months.”
Voters knew Biden was elderly when they elected him — so, they knew Harris would likely assume at least parts of the presidency sometime in the next four years.
But well-connected Washington officials say Biden’s White House is actually being run by people who were never on the ballot—people hidden deep within the shadows of the Deep State.
One of them is Susan Rice. She served as Barack Obama’s UN Ambassador, then his National Security Adviser. She was also the one who spread the lie that the attack on the U.S. Embassy in Benghazi had been triggered by an anti-Islamic YouTube video.
Biden named her his domestic policy adviser—but a top-ranking Trump administration official says Susan Rice is the real power behind the throne.
“There’s no question that she’s running domestic and foreign policy,” said former acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell, who was appointed by President Donald Trump.

Who voted for Susan Rice? Who’s even heard of Susan Rice?
Another name no one knew until recently is Jen Psaki. She’s supposed to announce Biden’s policy, but she appears to be setting Biden’s policy and—some say—even overruling the president himself.
At times, Joe Biden has given one very definite policy, only to have Psaki announce a much different one.
When asked during an interview before the Super Bowl if Iran would have to stop enriching uranium before he let them rejoin the sweet deal Barack Obama, Biden nodded.
But then Psaki walked back the hardline gesture, saying, “The president never said that, exactly.”
When policies switch from day to day, “it’s not certain who’s in charge—the president, or his handlers and staff,” wrote Jonathan Tobin.
Biden’s staffers “may think the president can’t be trusted to stick to the policies they’ve drawn up for him if let loose in an interview on television.”

So, they’re keeping him out of the spotlight — and he knows it.
Biden even called himself a “transitional candidate” and said, if he and Kamala ever had a major disagreement, he would pretend to resign for health reasons.
But Kamala is also tied up, since she has to cast the tie-breaking vote in the evenly divided U.S. Senate.
Meanwhile, “the shadow presidency of Susan Rice is front and center,” said Grenell.
Biden’s always wanted to be president, but critics say he may be little more than window dressing while the Deep State runs the show behind the scenes.
“Joe Biden is an empty suit. He does not control the Democratic Party,” said Leo Terrell on Fox News earlier this month.
But who really is controlling the White House? What are their plans? If we don’t like them, how can we vote them out of office, since they were never voted into office in the first place?

These are the sorts of questions no one should be asking in a free country.
