He has a weapon!

"REVEALED: How Biden rejected a reasonable way forward in Iran deal talks" (Parsi):

"A crucial turning point in the negotiations occurred earlier in May of this year. The Iranians had insisted on legally binding commitments that the United States would respect its signature and not re-quit the JCPOA, were it to be revived. Though the U.S. team found the Iranian demand understandable, it insisted it could not bind the hands of the next administration, nor guarantee that a future administration hostile to the JCPOA wouldn’t again abandon it.

But according to both Western and Iranian diplomats involved in the negotiations, the Iranians then lowered their demand and requested a commitment that Biden would simply commit to staying within the deal for the rest of his own term, granted that Iran also would remain in compliance. According to these sources, the U.S. negotiation team took the matter back to Washington but to the surprise of Tehran and others, the White House was not ready to make such a commitment, citing legal obstacles. Instead, it offered changes to the negotiating text that fell short of a legal commitment."

"Oops, they did it again: Senate Dems want 5% defense boost, GOP says not enough" (Lautz).  "Beijing’s recent hypersonic missile test launch may have just rendered all Washington’s defense systems useless" (Ritter).  "China conducted two hypersonic weapon tests this summer" (Sevastopulo):

"One person said government scientists were struggling to understand the capability, which the US does not currently possess, adding that China’s achievement appeared “to defy the laws of physics”."

"Judge finds Ontario women were defamed in social media firestorm over alleged George Floyd post" (Platt).  Note that absolutely nothing has been learned:

"Isak’s lawyer, Cedric Nahum, said they intend to appeal the decision, and argued the screenshot was not taken out of context.

“I believe that everyone should understand that ‘the context’ in which one’s activities will be viewed is greater than one’s own isolated personal worldview,” Nahum said in an email, stressing that he was speaking only for himself and not his client.

He also said the question of what is and isn’t racist is a matter of opinion, subject to one’s personal beliefs and biases.

“I believe Ms. Isak was free to view the act complained of as racist and that she ought to have been free to express it,” he said. “I disagree that a white judge should be telling Ms. Isak or any other Black person what is and is not racism.”"

The plaintiffs were very lucky to be Inuit, for if they were white there would be no judge in Ontario brave enough to do the right thing.

"Joe Biden and the Disappearing Elephant: How to Make a Full-Sized Scandal Vanish in Front of an Audience of Millions" (Turley):
"Influence peddling is common in Washington and can be done legally. Yet, it has also been the subject of intense criminal investigations. For example, the FBI raided the home of Trump counsel Rudolph Giuliani and others based on allegations of influence peddling in an ongoing criminal investigation. The Justice Department wants to know if Giuliani secured contracts in exchange for access or influence. The media gleefully recounted the raids and how Giuliani may have cashed in on his access. 
Yet, an influence peddling scheme that directly impacts the President and his family continues to be officially unseen. Indeed, the value of involving the media in the original trick is that it invests reporters in the illusion. It is like calling audience members to the stage to assist in the performance. Reporters have to insist that there was nothing to see or they have to admit to being part of the deception."
