1 – Joe Biden has ‘no regrets’ over hiding classified docs until after midterm elections
The New York Post reports: President Biden said Thursday he has “no regrets” about keeping the discovery of mishandled classified documents dating to his vice presidency under wraps until after last year’s midterms.
A cache of documents with classified markings was found Nov. 2 — six days before the election — inside a DC office Biden used after he left the Obama administration, but the unearthing was kept under wraps until CBS News broke the story Jan. 9.
Biden scolded a female reporter who asked him about the controversy during a trip to tour storm damage in California.
“What quite frankly bugs me is that we have a serious problem here we’re talking about,” Biden said. “We’re talking about what’s going on, and the American people don’t quite understand why you don’t ask me questions about that.”

2 – Home Depot co-founder issues warning about new ‘woke generation’ of leaders
Fox Business reports: As some of the world’s richest CEOs and business leaders discuss climate initiatives on the World Economic Forum stage in Davos, Switzerland, Home Depot co-founder Bernie Marcus sounded off on the “woke” new generation of leaders who ignore the economy’s “bottom line.”
“I certainly don’t want to see the woke generation coming up, especially the leaders. I’m watching Davos, what happened in Davos, and they’re recommending spending more money on climate control when we don’t have it,” Marcus said Thursday on “Varney & Co.” “We’ve already overspent. And if anything, climate control has caused most of the problems we have today.”
“We need leaders who are basically thinking about the shareholders and their employees, and how well the shareholders are doing and their employees. And I think today it’s all about woke diversity, things that don’t hit the bottom line,” Marcus explained.
The business leader also expressed difficulty in understanding how there are more than 10 million job openings in America, but only 6 million are actively looking for a job amid a looming recession.
“I can tell you right now, after some meetings I had yesterday, you can’t hire people. They don’t want to work. Nobody wants to work anymore, especially office people,” Marcus noted. “They want to work three days a week. It’s incredible. How do you have a recession when you have people that don’t want jobs?”
“They’re entitled, they’re given everything,” he said of the “woke” generation. “The government, in many cases, if you don’t work, you get as much money as when you did work… And so you get this laziness, which you have, and it’s basically a socialistic society.”
ANNETA G: I agree 100% with Bernie Marcus! And speaking of Davos, here’s what former British Prime Minister Tony Blair just proposed… you’ve got to watch this one:

3 – New ATF Rule Sets The Stage To Classify Legal Gun Owners As Criminals
The Daily Caller reports: The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives’ (ATF) recently implemented pistol brace final rule could classify millions of gun owners as felons should they fail to comply with the updated requirements, according to the gun rights advocacy groups.
The rule, announced in January, will void all previous guidance on pistols braces, opting to redefine “rifle” as any weapon “designed or redesigned, made or remade, and intended to be fired from the shoulder,” forcing pistol brace owners, many disabled, to register their pistols as short barrel rifles (SBR) with the federal government. The ATF has allowed 120 days for gun owners with pistol braces to adjust the barrel longer than the required 16 inches, file a Form 1 to “make” the pistol a SBR, remove the brace, surrender the firearm or destroy the firearm.
Second Amendment Foundation founder and Executive Vice President Alan M. Gottlieb told the Daily Caller News Foundation that the ATF is in “confiscation mode.
“I mean, realistically, if you don’t register your gun with them in a certain timeframe and pay the $200 tax, you have to either destroy the gun, turn it in, or convert it somehow with a different barrel,” he said. There are currently between 10 million and 40 million gun owners who use pistol braces and pistol-braced firearms in the U.S., according to gun rights advocate Gun Owners of America (GOA).
The rule reclassifies pistol braces as SBRs, and if gun owners choose to leave their pistols as is, they will need to pay the $200 government tax stamp required by the National Firearms Act (NFA).
