A man with a firearm staged a protest in close proximity to President Joe Biden’s residence in Wilmington, Delaware, on Sunday. Dressed in a conspicuous yellow and orange safety vest, the protester prominently displayed a sign bearing various allegations.
One side of the sign accused the Bidens of being involved in criminal activities, including references to shell companies and a missing laptop.
The reverse side of the sign contained claims of Joe Biden using aliases such as Robert L. Peters, Robin Ware, and JRN Ware.
As he moved along the road leading to the president’s home, a Secret Service vehicle discreetly trailed him, ensuring security without interference with the president’s movements.
Peaceful Protest in an Open Carry State
Delaware, where this incident occurred, is an open carry state, allowing citizens to openly carry firearms. President Biden, who had arrived in Wilmington the previous Friday, was briefly at his White House residence on Sunday afternoon before embarking on a trip to New York City for fundraising events and participation in the U.N. General Assembly.
During this weekend visit, the president maintained a low profile, with his only public appearance being attendance at a Saturday mass at his regular church, St. Joseph on the Brandywine. Notably, President Biden has not issued an official statement regarding the indictment of his son, Hunter Biden.
Hunter Biden’s Legal Troubles
Hunter Biden, the president’s son, is currently facing three federal charges that carry a potential sentence of up to 25 years in prison. These charges are related to his acquisition of a firearm, with allegations that he provided false information on the firearm purchase form while struggling with drug addiction.
As President Biden left the church services on Saturday, a reporter inquired about the possibility of a presidential pardon for his son.
White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre had already clarified the administration’s stance, stating that President Biden would not pardon his son. The president himself declined to address the question on multiple occasions.
References to Alleged Pseudonyms
The armed protester’s signs made reference to alleged pseudonyms that President Biden purportedly used in emails during his tenure as vice president. These claims emerged from an investigation conducted by the Republican-controlled House Oversight Committee.
This incident underscores the complex and often contentious nature of political discourse in the United States, where protests and public demonstrations are an integral part of democratic expression.
