Joe Biden has always talked out of both sides of his mouth — and half the time, both sentences are gibberish.

He’s claimed that he has no interest in coming for your guns, but he owns guns and in fact even told his wife, “Dr. Jill,” to fire off two shotgun blasts in case there’s ever a break in at one of his many mansions.
Yet… on the other hand, he’s the author of a bill that banned “assault rifles” like the AR-15 and has said he’d like to scoop up all these weapons.
Now, he’s nominated someone to lead the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms — the ATF — who is an anti-gun extremist and accused racist.
That nominee is dangling by a thread, beset by opposition from his own state, his own party, and the Republicans in Congress.
Biden named one-time ATF agent David Chipman to lead the agency… but Chipman has created problems everywhere he’s gone.
This buddy cop story looks like it’s headed for a bad ending.
The latest controversy has to do with his career inside the agency: A current ATF agent has told the publication The Reload that Chipman had a reputation as a racist.
“He made some comments that he was surprised by the number of African Americans who have made it onto a specific promotional list. So, his insinuation was that they had to have cheated,” the agent said. “Which is kind of despicable.”
“That’s why he left Detroit,” the official said.
That would be a major step backwards from a man like Joe Biden, who said he ran for president to save “the soul” of America after he saw footage of Charlottesville… and who talks about racism and “white supremacy” 24/7.
Now he wants to bring in a racist to be his top cop?
As for Chipman, has big plans if he gets into office.

After he left the ATF, he became a professional anti-gun activist. He joined a group called Mayors Against Illegal Guns, the gun control organization founded by billionaire Democrat Michael Bloomberg.
He said that the people who bought a new gun to deal with last year’s pandemic of riots and crime — which has only increased under Joe Biden and VP Kamala Harris — are so stupid and useless in using guns that they’re actually “putting themselves and their families in danger.”
“In their mind they might be competent, they might think they’re die-hard and ready to go, but unfortunately they’re more like Tiger King,” he said.
And he’s lied about the events that took place during the 51-day standoff with members of David Koresh’s Branch Davidians at Waco. He said that two ATF helicopters were shot down by rifle-wielding people inside the compound… but in reality no helicopters were ever shot out of the sky.
So, it seems Biden nominated a gun-grabbing liar. He should fit in great in the administration… but he’d be a terrible choice for Americans.
The ATF agent who spoke to The Reload, said Chipman’s history as a racist gun-grabber makes him the mirror image of what you’d expect — or want — in an ATF leader.

“Almost every agent I’ve ever worked with is pretty apolitical. They take great pride in not being hyper-partisan. So, he’s the exact opposite of what most of us are. And he’s one of only two ATF agents I’ve ever met in my entire life who I perceived to be anti-gun. Most of them are actually quite fond of firearms; they’re just not fond of firearms in the hands of violent criminals. But he has shown a propensity to be anti-gun.”
It’s not just fellow agents pushing back. Chipman faces three strikes, from Montana legislators, Democrats, and Republicans.
More than two dozen Montana lawmakers sent a letter to U.S. Sen. John Tester, D-Mont., asking him to oppose the anti-Second Amendment nominee.
“I think opposing Chipman is the only option if you’re a pro-Montana Second Amendment rights person,” State Senator Greg Hertz told KGVO. “It’s widely known that Chipman was a lobbyist for anti gun groups and he has a very long history of being very anti-Second Amendment. He wants to include some of the many popular firearms in America.”
When asked whether he’d vote to support Chipman, Tester said, “I’m still reviewing it, and I’m not even sure it’s going to come up.”
Fellow Democratic Senators Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Independent Angus King, who caucuses with the Democrats, haven’t said they support Chipman yet, either — so right now, Chipman doesn’t have enough Democratic votes to get through the evenly-divided Senate.

And if Chipman makes it into office, Republicans say they’re ready to impeach him.
Rep. Matt Rosendale, R-Mont., said Chipman is already guilty of “high crimes and misdemeanors based on the grounds found in two distinct articles.”
First, Chipman would be impeached because of his “failure to support and defend the Second Amendment of the Constitution of the United States.” And, they say, he lied to Congress about having his personal gun stolen by his handyman.
So, there’s good news and bad news.
The bad news is our president is nominating extremists who want to trample all over our rights. The good news is, they’re so incompetent that they may be unable to pull off their assault on the Constitution and our freedoms.
