Biden’s Government is an Unmitigated Disaster

Published

on

Our planet is plagued with disastrous governments, e.g., Russia, China, North Korea, and Iran. It is not difficult to argue that one of these is the world’s worst. My vote, however, goes to adding the current US government to the list. When the most powerful and influential country in the world has a dysfunctional government like the one run by Joe Biden, the equilibrium of the entire world is threatened.

We have the most powerful economic engine and the most lethal military machine. Such a colossus should demand a government of equivalent power and capability. No such luck. What we have instead is a pathetic old man sitting at the controls. Not even counting Joe’s obvious cognitive and physical decline, every one of his actions as president has set us on a course of economic and social ruin.

Just before the 2020 election, I wrote the following: “If Biden wins, your lifestyle will fall to pieces, your economic security will collapse, your right to speak freely will cease to exist, unaccountable government bureaucrats will control your decisions, and you will live in constant fear of violence.” Sorry to gloat, but I was right.

“It is virtually impossible to identify a realm in which Democrats are wreaking anything but havoc, division and devastation,” said Deroy Murdock in the New York Post. You name the subject: the border, crime, inflation, energy, education, race relations, and growth of the bureaucracy. All of them have been impacted negatively since Biden took office.

Here is how Biden’s assault on America is paying off:
• Increased taxation
• Staggering inflation
• Astronomical gas, heating, and food prices
• Out-of-control crime statistics
• Economic regression
• Mounting indebtedness
• Growth of the Washington bureaucracy
• Capitulation to foreign energy
• Social disintegration via race baiting
• Weaponization of the DOJ, FBI, and IRS against Biden’s political opponents
• Forced redistribution of income
• Erosion of military effectiveness
• An avalanche of illegal immigration with resulting crime, disease, and welfare costs

Perhaps the worst example of Biden’s ineptitude is reflected in what I have referred to as the “Team of Fools” that occupy critical positions in his administration. (“Team of Fools: Biden’s Cabinet Picks Prove He is Unfit to Lead,” American Thinker, June 15, 2022)

Just look at this group of misfits:
Alejandro Mayorkas, Homeland Security: In direct contradiction to his statements and his sworn duty to uphold the law, Mayorkas deliberately has allowed millions to cross our southern border illegally. Under Mayorkas, deaths due to drug overdoses from imported fentanyl topped 100,000 for the first time ever. It is difficult to tell if he is a consummate liar or just plain delusional.

Janet Yellen, Treasury: “I can’t think of a more inept Treasury Secretary over the past 30 years,” said journalist and media host Charlie Gasparino. “If you’re mad about the current state of the economy,” said Tucker Carlson, “Janet Yellin is the first person you should blame.”

Pete Buttigieg, Transportation: In the midst of a massive supply-chain breakdown, what did Buttigieg do about it? He took a months-long parental leave after adopting twins with his “husband.” Buttigieg attempted to defend his performance by saying, “We’re doing a lot.” He should have stayed out on paternity leave. The country would be better off.

Merrick Garland, Attorney General: Biden’s henchman for the administration’s 1984 agenda. Garland’s intention appears to be the use of law enforcement and military force to arrest, imprison, and otherwise crush anyone who leads opposition to Joe Biden’s government. For example, Garland has made it clear that parents protesting the woke indoctrination of their children are domestic terrorists. He has directed the FBI and US attorney offices to crack down on these parents by characterizing their protests, which are completely legal, as crimes.

Jennifer Granholm, Energy: “Granholm’s credentials for the job [of Energy Secretary],” said Liz Peek on Fox News, “appear to be that she has swallowed Biden’s climate agenda hook, line, and sinker, and especially his affection for electric vehicles.” Our way of life is dependent on fossil fuels. There is no viable alternative, nor will one exist in the foreseeable future. Biden’s assault on the fossil fuel industry, if unchecked, will completely destroy the US economy.

Lloyd Austin, Defense: Oversaw the most embarrassing military event in American history—the withdrawal from Afghanistan—and is replacing combat readiness with the destructive woke agenda. As China challenges our military superiority, we cannot afford to play this game.

Karine Jean-Pierre, Press: “If press secretaries reflect an administration,” writes Andrea Widburg at American Thinker, “Biden has just the right person in Jean-Pierre. She’s driven by identity politics and otherwise knows nothing.” She is a total embarrassment every time she opens her mouth.

• And the list goes on and on.

“Every single thing this man and his administration touch they absolutely destroy,” said Arkansas Governor Sarah Huckabee Sanders. “Something has to be done to stop the craziness that is going on in Washington.” The media has landed in the pocket of the Democrat Party, so we can’t depend on them to do anything about it. Gullible voters continue to support the insupportable. MSNBC features a gallery of voters who all parrot the same refrain: Biden is doing a great job. What are they smoking?

The one thing I try not to forget is that the leftists who want to destroy the US are a minority. “Our country is being run by a deranged group of extremists,” said Donald Trump. “But no matter how big or powerful these corrupt radicals may be, you must never forget this nation does not belong to them. This nation belongs to you.” Have we forgotten, or is there light at the end of the tunnel?

Will Democrats Do What They Must?

Published

on

On a warm August evening in 1974, President Richard M. Nixon said from the Oval Office that he was resigning, becoming the first president to do so. He confessed that he no longer had “a strong enough political base in the Congress” to finish his term.

Sen. Barry Goldwater, Ariz., the 1964 GOP presidential nominee, was a respected conservative leader in a Senate whose Republican ranks were less conservative than now. In a May 1973 interview with Time magazine, Goldwater had given an early warning, “If it can be proved that he (Nixon) lied, resignation would have to be considered. It would be quick. Everything would be over, ended. It wouldn’t drag out like impeachment.”

At a regular Senate Republican Conference lunch on august 6 of 1974, Goldwater had fumed: “There are only so many lies you can take, and now there has been one too many. Nixon should get his ass out of the White House today!” When he went to see President Nixon, Goldwater confided, “There’s not more than 15 senators for you.” After that showdown, the curtain on President Nixon’s presidency came down three days later.

In this challenging time in our history when President Biden’s competency is under serious question, will Democrat leaders have the courage to do the same? With this report, more Democrats and Independents will be less inclined to vote for Biden. That may very well impact the future of many Democrat politicians whose own election could be impacted if their voting base stays home. After his Wednesday night address, the evidence that Biden is in trouble is plainly obvious.

President Biden’s poll numbers are now at an all time low. The shocking Department of Justice Special Counsel Robert Hur report suggests that Biden should not be indicted because Biden is “a sympathetic, well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory” that a jury would be unlikely to convict. The Special Counsel also noted that Biden “willfully retained and disclosed classified materials after his vice presidency when he was a private citizen;” he noted that such actions “present serious risks to national security.” It is clearly a risk for Biden to remain in office.

When President Biden addressed the country after the report was disclosed, he asserted that his memory was fine, and the report confirms that he was not indicted and did nothing wrong. His comments to the press questions were combative and defensive. He took no personal responsibility, blaming his staff for the faulty storage of classified documents. His message was strident and clear-Trump is guilty, and I did nothing wrong.

If he is not competent to stand trial for his actions, how can he be confident enough to remain president? It’s time for a private confrontation by Democrat leadership. If Biden does not listen, it is time to exercise the 25th amendment option to remove him from office.

It is not easy to use that 25th Amendment option. It is even more difficult with only 9 months before a critical national election. Waiting until the Democrat Convention in August leaves little time to right the ship and promote a replacement candidate.

Democrats, do your job to clean out your own house. President Biden is not competent to meet the challenges of our time. Do it now or pay the price in November. As Republicans, we hope you let Biden remain your candidate, but that is selfish. President Biden is our current leader and his decisions impact all of us and a world in turmoil. This isn’t about politics. We can’t afford even eleven more months of a mentally incompetent President.

Claudine Gay, Ex-Harvard President, Will Strike it Rich in 2024

Gay will be a hot ticket at conferences leading up to the 2024 election.

Published

on

If she were a straight white male, Claudine Gay’s career in academia would have been completely finished weeks ago. Along with the presidents of MIT and (then) University of Pennsylvania, as a result of Gay’s anti-Semitism and her disastrous testimony before Congress in December, much of the country was in an uproar.

Pretzel Logic

Days later, when it was discovered that Gay had plagiarized or inappropriately paraphrased and lifted passages from other authors, from a variety of academic works, that would have sealed her fate. In this utterly illogical age of unreason, just the opposite of what ought to happen actually did happen. The Harvard bigwigs backed her!

Gay punched all of the intersectionality buttons: Black, gay, female, and what else you want to throw into the mix. So was she not terminated from her widely visible, high-profile position. Luckily for Harvard, she quit as president! She retains her cushy post as professor, however, at $900,000 per year. And more amazing good fortune likely is in store for her. She may well reap an income bonanza unlike most other college presidents in the U.S. or around the world.

You have to understand that Gay is actually a hero to many factions on the Left. Let’s see … she stood up to the man! She let Congress have it with both barrels. She defended her academic turf. She stuck with what she believes in. She didn’t kowtow to the U.S. pro-Israeli faction. She spoke her truth! My goodness, what a leader, what a noble soul, what a speaker we might have at our convention!

Media Darlings

A variety of questionable figures on the Left have become darlings to groups who lap up their every word. If you think this won’t happen with Ms. Gay, think again.

Unbelievably, the parents of Trayvon Martin became media darlings. Martin was a violent teenager who punched a bus driver in the face, stole money and other items at school, and was suspended from school at the time of his death. He met his fate while pounding George Zimmerman’s head into a sidewalk.

Democratic groups have celebrated the Martins ever since then. Their public appearances were considered to be special. In another minute, with a cracked skull, Zimmerman might have bled out and died, making Martin a murderer.

Honored at the DNC Convention

The parents of Michael Brown also made the rounds and were accorded celebrity status. The super-sized 18-year-old from Ferguson, MO had stolen cigars and choked a small Asian convenience store clerk just 10 minutes before he had tried to wrestle a gun away from an officer sitting in his police car.

Had Brown, whose fingerprints were all over the officer’s car, successfully taken the officer’s gun, Brown, too, might have been a murderer. At the Democrat National Convention attendees couldn’t get enough of Brown’s noble mother. Sadly, the city of Ferguson, MO, paid Brown’s family an extorted $1.5 million, largely due to fears of more mob violence.

If parents who’ve raised career criminals are celebrated, what are Claudine Gay’s prospects?

Prospects Aplenty

Presumably, she has no violent incidents in her past. Prior to her resignation as Harvard president she may have already, privately signed on with one of the top speaker’s bureaus from either in Boston, New York, or Washington, D.C. Bureaus value having partisan speakers in their lineup when they can book such individuals at large conferences and conventions. Gay will be a hot ticket leading up to the 2024 election.

She will be featured as the head liner at many conferences.

How much can she glean from such appearances? The floor is 20 to 40 thousand per outing, but 50 to 75 thousand is within reach, of which the bureau takes 25%. At that level of earnings for a speech, she could easily exceed another $900,000 by the end of the year. Will you earn $1,800,000 in the next ten years?

Knowing No Bounds

As one audience after another offers her special treatment, her already outsized, over-privileged ego will know no bounds, and all of her past sins will be long forgotten. The groups to whom she speaks will consider themselves to have done their part in promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion. Gay’s intersectionality seals the deal, so by any measure, it’s a win-win-win (bureau, speaker, and audience) for Leftists.

To those on the Right, such developments are sickening, but we’ve come to accept that this is the world as it is currently. With all the devastation and destruction promulgated by the Biden administration, we have much bigger fish to fry.
