I am approaching my 500th post. The negativity we have experienced in the last fifteen months has been overwhelming. I have started writing a positive story every Sunday about someone deserving. I want to write something positive about Biden, his administration, or Democrats, but I cannot. They continue to lie, defy the letter of the law, and take steps to tear down this great country.
Let’s take a look at a few examples:
Janet Yellen recently appeared before the Senate and found a way to conflate Inflation and Abortion. She was answering Tim Scott’s (R-SC) questions, which was not a good place for her to pull this thought out of the playbook. Yellen talked about the disproportionate impact of inflation on low-income Americans, which is agreed upon by all. She should have stopped there, but no. She went on to say how vital access to abortion is to fight the inflation impact on the poor. Young women are more able to participate in the workforce without the burden of raising an unwanted child.
In her words, abortion leads to freedom from poverty for young, especially Black, women. Scott told her how offended he was, raised in poverty by a single mother. He was glad his mother did use abortion as a ticket out of poverty.
Jen Psaki, speaking for herself and the President, and many Progressive members of Congress, including Senator Warren and Congresswomen Talaib and Omar, expressed support for pro-abortion protestors marching on Justices’ homes and church services. Even when the federal law forbidding public protest and acts of intimidation at the homes of Supreme Court Justices was read to them, they reiterated their support.
They are publicly encouraging these protestors to break the law because it works to reinforce their position and extends the news cycle. Just as these people supported the “peaceful” protests and encampments while protestors destroyed major cities after the death of George Floyd, they were now showing how irresponsible this team of misfits is. How can we expect protestors to obey the law when the President and his party encourage them to defy them?
The President addressed the nation yesterday, and many hoped he would have some answers or a plan to attack the runaway inflation impacting everyone. We were disappointed. The President seemed ill-prepared to speak and stumbled many times. He kept alluding to his plan but gave no details. Biden blamed the Pandemic, Putin, and suppliers for the highest inflation in forty years. He would take no blame and claimed his “plan” was helping to keep inflation in check.
He ramped up the rhetoric on Republicans by changing his catchphrase from MAGA Republicans to Ultra MAGAs. New polling data must have shown the new phrase worked better. Unfortunately, the term was challenging, and he stuttered each time he said it. He pointed to Senator Rick Scott of Florida, saying he was from Wisconsin, and misrepresented Scott’s 11-point plan claiming it was the position of all Republicans. That is just not true. The President’s speech was filled with blame, lies, and no answers. Americans deserve better from their leader. We are not getting better.
These three examples all happened in one day. These are not exceptions but indicative of the performance of President Joe Biden and his team. The abortion protests will probably fester until the actual opinion, and if the decision follows the draft, the protests will amplify. These protests will pull attention away from the other administration deficiencies, but it will be difficult not to notice the impact on our shrinking IRAs and cash in our wallets.
This administration is in a death spiral that will crash on the first Tuesday in November. The Ultra MAGA Crowd better have some solid plans ready to rescue this country being pulled by Biden to the abyss. When Republicans control Congress, Americans will be razor-focused on quick solutions.
