The New Issue Of JOHNSTONE: Biden’s Bloodlust

4 min readMay 5, 2024

For those who don’t know, I publish a print version of my work once a month called JOHNSTONE magazine. The new edition is called “Biden’s Bloodlust”, and is now available to order in print or download in pay-what-you-want digital.

As November gets closer and the Biden administration gets more murderous and tyrannical by the day, liberal spinmeisters are falling all over themselves to portray the president as some kind of passive witness to the atrocities we’re witnessing in Gaza and the authoritarian suppression of dissent we’re seeing in the US. No no, he’s completely powerless to stop the government that’s completely dependent on US military support from conducting a military operation. No no, he’s completely powerless to stop the violent police crackdowns he’s openly supporting and encouraging on protesters against his genocide.

Bullshit. Biden has always been a murderous swamp monster. That’s the only reason he got the job. And that’s why the cover of today’s issue of JOHNSTONE features the US president dining on an ice cream cone of gore.
