Or Is It?

Well, can you believe this? Yesterday’s blog focused in on what Joe Biden said was the biggest threat to America. Remember? It was “white supremacy”. Apparently, Joe is ready to walk that back already? He said that was what members of the intelligence community told him.

Well, on Wednesday of this past week, Ol’ Joe was speaking to members of the military. Here’s what he had to say:

“When I went over to the tank in the Pentagon when I was first was elected vice president with President Obama, the military sat us down and let us know what the greatest threats facing America were, the greatest physical threats,” he said. “This is not a joke. You know what the Joint Chiefs told us the greatest physical threat facing America was? Global warming. 

“There will be significant population movements, fights over land, millions of people leaving places because they’re literally sinking below the sea in Indonesia, because of the fights over what is arable land anymore.”

I get it that Joe sometimes doesn’t know where he is, or who he’s speaking to, or what he’s speaking about. But this is supposed to be the “greatest threat facing America”! I mean, c’mon, already!

Here’s the problem. Democrats in general, and Biden in particular have all come together to fill our heads with these threats because they know if they say, “Oh, we’re killing polar bears because we’re heating up the earth’s atmosphere”, no one will listen. If they tell us what noted environmentalist and former climate change guru, Michael Shellenberger has said, which is basically that there is no man-made global warming or climate change, we basically will go on driving little Jimmy to soccer practice and little Jenny to her dance lessons in that nasty old SUV. More on that later. So, the threats keep getting greater and greater, and more and more dire. It gets to the point where we realize that the sky really isn’t falling, and Chicken Little was just a Democrat.

Apparently, America isn’t buying it. That’s because if you go back and look over the last 10 years (with the exception of last year because of COVID), SUV and truck sales in this country have skyrocketed. No one listens to people like this Greta character in Norway, or Al Gore, or now, Joe Biden.

Our greatest threat isn’t white supremacy. It isn’t black lives matter. It isn’t climate change (which is natural and we can’t do a damn thing about). Our biggest threat today is Russia and China, and Iran and North Korea. Our biggest threat domestically are liberal snowflakes that are upset over every little thing, and think that they know better than anyone else about every topic in the world. It’s people like Nancy Pelosi who screams that we should follow the science, until the science shows that she’s been wrong all these years. Then she conveniently moves on to another topic.

As for Joe Biden, isn’t it about time for him to be led back into his basement?

Carry on world…you’re dismissed!

Our Biggest Threat…

What would you say the biggest threat to America is? Think about that for a minute. There are so many different places that you could turn. If you were to listen to Al Gore or that girl in, what is it? Norway? It’s gotta be Global Changing Warming Climate or some such nonsense. If you live in Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, or San Diego, California, you might mention border security and the invasion of our country by illegal aliens. You may think if you live in Flint, Michigan that it’s lead tainted drinking water.

Of course, if you’re thinking in the past, you may believe that the biggest threat to America is al qaeda or the Taliban. Then of course, there is the Democrats’ favorite whipping boy, Russia and Vladimir Putin, right? What about former President Trump’s favorite? China? They say they are ready to go to nuclear war with the US if we press them any farther on the whole COVID investigation.

All of you would be wrong.

According to Joe Biden, the biggest threat to America is none of those things. It’s white supremacy. That’s right. Worse than the climate, worse than the millions of illegals streaming across our “closed” border, worse than bad drinking water. It’s worse than the Russians, or the Chinese, or the North Koreans, or the Iranians. It’s home-grown white supremacy.

Now, if you try to define “white supremacy”, you might run across a definition that calls it “the belief that white people constitute a superior race and should therefore dominate society, typically to the exclusion or detriment of other racial and ethnic groups, in particular black or Jewish people.” Which is interesting because I know several Jewish people. Most of them ARE white. But apparently, they don’t fit into “white supremacy”.

I usually try to stay away from race as a topic here, for one simple reason. I think ALL races are equal. There are good and bad in every segment of society, and in all races. No one race is exempt from that. There are good people and there are bad people. The color of their skin doesn’t determine that trait. In fact, it has nothing to do with it. There are just as many misguided and lunatic white people out there as there are black people, brown people, yellow people, or red people. And there are just as many good people out there in those races as well.

For Joe Biden to make such a stupid and inane comment like that in public, regardless how he feels personally is an assault on the 61% of non-Hispanic white people in America. Yes, there are some “white supremacists” out there. Just like there are black racists out there. But neither is the “greatest threat to America”. Such a statement speaks volumes of Biden’s lack of intelligence, and total disregard for decorum.

I thought Joe Biden said he was the guy that “could unite ALL Americans”. He was the guy that could bring us all together. How in the hell can you do that when you’re calling over half of your constituents “white supremacists” as the uber-leftist snowflake socialists are doing? Have you seen some of those ridiculous posts on TikTok screaming that all whites are bad? Most of them are done by little white girls.

Biden needs to get his act together quickly. He is rapidly becoming a non-entity in this country. Hell, he can’t even get an infrastructure bill passed because he needs to kow-tow to the left on overspending and bankrupting America.

I will close with this…you chose wrong, America. You chose wrong.

Carry on world…you’re dismissed!

Cable News Continues To Crater

If you are a fan of Cable News television, one thing is for sure. You are watching a lot less of it today than you did a year ago. That’s because all of the Cable News channels are sucking swamp water, and probably PRAYING that Donald Trump is reelected quickly!

Here are the total day breakdowns.

Fox News continues to lead the pack after losing huge viewerships after the election. Fox has 1.19 million viewers, which is down some 37% from last year in May. MSNBC is in second with 825,000 viewers. That’s down 28%. CNN continues to drop like a brick. They are down to just 660,000 viewers, which was a drop of 44% since last May.

The numbers for 25-54 year old viewers were even worse. Fox had 203,000 viewers, down 38%; CNN had 147,000 viewers, which was down 51%, and MSNBC was third with 108,000 viewers, down about 39%.

Those numbers are staggering when you consider that back in the day when I did a morning radio show in Toledo, Ohio, we had close to MSNBC’s numbers. And we were just talking about three counties in Ohio, not a national cable news channel. To say those numbers are embarrassing is a total understatement!

There was one bright spot, and it came from Fox News. Gutfeld! debuted in May with high numbers, winning the 11pm timeslot hands down. That show took the place of Shannon Bream’s news roundup program which got bumped to midnight.

So, what’s this mean for cable news? It basically backs up my theory on media. There is a birth, a death, and a rebirth and another death to every medium out there. And cable news doesn’t escape that. They were born in 1991 when CNN went on the air full-time covering the First Gulf War. They basically claimed dominance over the networks, ABC, CBS, and NBC, who couldn’t begin to offer the coverage that CNN did. And it made household names out of people like Wolf Blitzer.

Long story short, cable news needs something to happen in order to get out of their doldrums. It seems that the only people really tuning in anymore to any of those three places are older folks who are more interested in the happenings of the world than younger folks are. That doesn’t bode well for advertisers, which I guess is why you see a lot of ads for drug companies, and other “old folks” products. My only question is, how much longer can it continue? Some of those folks on cable news shows are getting quite a bit of money to show up day in and day out.

Joe Scarborough makes about $6 million a year on MSNBC hosting “Morning Joe” with his wife, Mika Brzezinski, who actually makes $2 million more than Joe. Rachel Maddow makes $7 million a year. Anderson Cooper rakes in a cool $12 million on CNN. Over at Fox, Bret Baier hauls in $7 million, Tucker Carlson gets $6 million, and the king-daddy of them all is Sean Hannity who makes a cool $40 million a year!

If the ratings continue to drop, there’s no way these news channels can continue to fork over that amount for 100,000 viewers!

Carry on world…you’re dismissed!

Biden Out In Left Field With Prediction

I get it that Joe Biden doesn’t have a medical degree. I guess we can all be thankful for that one. Last Thursday, Biden was speaking on the economy and made, what the Washington Post (VERY liberal paper) said was a “four Pinocchio comment”.

Here’s what he said:

“You know, if we don’t do something about Alzheimer’s in America, every single, solitary hospital bed that exists in America—as the nurses can tell you—every single one will be occupied in the next 15 years with an Alzheimer’s patient—every one.”

Now, compare what he said last Thursday, to what he said last March in Ohio during a campaign stop at a hospital:

“If we don’t do something, for example about Alzheimer’s, every single bed in American hospitals today will be occupied by someone with Alzheimer’s within 20 years, every single bed.”

I do know something about this topic. My wife worked in the long-term care field for years and her last job before retirement was in a memory care facility where they had LOTS of Alzheimer’s patients. But even if I had no idea what Alzheimer’s was, I’d call this weird. How do you lose five years within 14 months?

The funny thing here is that no one can source this information to any credible place. There is nowhere under the sun that says that we are going to run out of hospital space because of Alzheimer’s. In fact, let’s run the numbers, shall we?

Currently in the US, there are 6 million Alzheimer’s patients. That’s according to the Alzheimer Association. The predict that number jumps to 11 million by the year 2040. The Milken Institute says it will be 13 million by then. Take your pick. Now, there are currently 538 cases of Alzheimer’s that require hospital stays for every 1,000 people over the age of 65 on Medicare. If you do the numbers for 13 million people, you get 7 million hospital stays. Currently there are about 36 million hospital stays per year in the United States…so Biden’s numbers are out in left field somewhere. That’s using the 2040 projected numbers, and the highest projected numbers at that!

I have no idea where this guy gets his statistics. It must be on some cereal box that he’s reading during breakfast in the morning, because no one can figure it out. When the liberal rag Washington Post comes out and gives four Pinocchio’s, you know there is something wrong with the comment. And by the way, just for the record…this was the fifth “four Pinocchio” comment Biden has had from the Post since taking office on January 20th. That means he averages a whopping lie once every 26.2 days.

And you guys elected this idiot?

The New Warfare

I remember being told way back in the 1980’s somewhere that the “new warfare” wouldn’t be fought on the battlefield with soldiers. It wouldn’t be fought on the seas with naval vessels. And it wouldn’t involved thousands of aircraft blowing another country to bits with bombs.

It would involve computers.

It took about 40 years, but it seems whoever told me that back then was absolutely right. And as I happened to say back in 2001 when the World Trade Center, and Pentagon were attacked, we were at war back then, but it was a religious war that nobody wanted to call a religious war…today we are at war with Russia. Nobody in DC wants to say that, but we are in fact at war.

When you realize that in the last couple of months, we’ve had a major gas and oil pipeline shut down that sent gasoline prices skyrocketing to levels we haven’t seen since Joe Biden was VICE president, and that was blamed on “hackers” from Russia, and now we’re dealing with the world’s largest meat packer getting hacked, again by Russia, we are under attack.

The question is, will anybody in DC be smart enough to call a spade a spade?

This is the new warfare. It won’t be fought on the battlefield. The loss of human life is far too great for both sides. It won’t be fought with robots, as had been postulated early on. That’s too expensive, especially when you can get some 19 year old geek with a computer to hack into another country’s “secured” system, or some business’ system, and bring it to it’s knees.

Now, I would hope that the US is engaging in similar warfare with Russia, and Iran, and China, and North Korea. I don’t know that for a fact. I know that someone pretty well infected Iran’s nuclear program a few years back, and no one stood up to claim credit (and never will). But I’m hoping that somewhere up the road, IF this is actual war, and it’s looking more and more like it is, that someone needs to retaliate in a way that will be destructive to the perpetrators. We cannot let them run wild through out cyber-infrastructure.

Do you realize that our electric grid is run by computer? Do you realize that water plants everywhere are run by computer? Everything that you do, everything that comes into your daily life is regulated in some way, shape, or form by a computer. And if it’s being run by a computer, it’s most likely connected to the internet in some way. And if it is, it’s vulnerable to attack by outsiders.

People wonder why I have absolutely no interest in making my home a “smart home”. The reason is simple. It’s the same reason that I don’t buy into the electric company’s offer to buy me a new thermostat. I don’t want them having the ability to control it…and they would. I don’t want door locks, or burglar alarms, or video cameras on my property tied to the internet where someone with a 10th grade education can jump on a laptop or a cell phone and disarm everything. Talking about giving a thief the keys to the castle!

And the same is true for our country. Joe Biden wants to spend trillions of dollars “updating” our infrastructure. What he should be doing is spending trillions of dollars securing our computer networks so that they are impenetrable, if that’s even possible. It needs to be done. We are at war. If we don’t do something of a defensive posture soon, these hacks of companies and government run computers will continue until we will be controlled by a keystroke from somewhere outside out borders.

Manchin To The Rescue?

Joe Manchin (D-WVa) appears to be the lone guy (well, sometimes with Arizona’s Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) who is fighting for his constituents rather than his party. At least that’s the short end of the story on the surface. Manchin came out this past weekend and said that he was going to be voting against S-1, the sweeping Voting Rights Act that basically would create havoc for anyone not a Democrat trying to get elected.

S-1, better known as the “For The People Act”, is the Democrats’ attempt to insure that voting by mail (which has lead to massive voter fraud in the past) along with automatically registering everyone of age to vote (again, leading to massive voter fraud), and “increasing access to the ballot box” for everyone (see above two topics), is heading to a vote in the Senate. Now, normally, if people were voting on party lines, this would pass 50-50 with Kamala Harris voting in favor as the tie breaker. But this isn’t normal times, and apparently, Joe Manchin is thinking with his head, not with his wallet.

The problem with S-1 is that, while it allows for early voting, and insures that those that Democrats claim are being disenfranchised with their vote can get to the polls, it does add several layers of concern besides those outlined above. The main reason for this bill is simple. It’s to make sure that Democrats are the only ones elected to Congress and the White House for the foreseeable future. And it does so, because of the fact it allows for voter fraud.

Now, I’ve said many, many times on this blog and elsewhere that in 2020 there was indeed voter fraud. Yes, I do believe that. I don’t believe there was enough voter fraud to overturn the election. Joe Biden won the election. There was never any proof given in any courtroom in this country that signified otherwise. I’ve read the transcripts. The arguments that people like Rudy Giuliani gave in public and the arguments that he gave in the courtroom where he could be slapped with a perjury charge were incredibly different. Why? If Giuliani had what he claimed to the media that he had, why didn’t he produce it in a court of law?

This act, however, isn’t the answer. If you’re looking at fair and unbiased elections, and I really do believe that MOST Americans are in agreement with that, you don’t want S-1 to pass. It doesn’t insure fair and unbiased elections. It insures biased, rigged elections at almost every turn. There is a very simple solution.

You make people vote in person. You make election day the first Tuesday after the first Monday in November and leave it at that. You do not allow absentee voting unless there is a medical reason why a person of voting age, and registered to vote cannot get to the polls. And you make Election Day a federal holiday. Nobody works. You make it illegal to campaign or stand within 100 yards of anybody standing in line to vote, or harass anybody in line to vote. When you vote, you receive a purple ink spot on your thumb that wears off after 2 weeks. Nothing else can get it off. And once the voting is over, the machines, with a paper trail, are confiscated and taken to a secure place guarded by armed guards. There they are counted and reported immediately, and the tallies sent to a central location.

After those tallies are sent to a central location, the results are final and there is no allowing for any extra ballots to be counted. This insures that no one “finds” a bunch of absentee ballots hidden in a closet somewhere as has happened several times. Or that someone in the middle of the night drives up and delivers boxes of absentee ballots as was alleged that happened in Wayne County, Michigan in November.

Anyone caught tampering with voting is locked away for the rest of their lives with no chance for parole. If you make the punishment severe enough, you will see voter fraud disappear. It’s that simple.

S-1 is a bad idea. It’s not American. It’s foisted by people who want to control you in ever avenue of your life while they are held above the law. And we can all thank Joe Manchin for deciding it’s not what the United States Senate needs to do.

Time For Fauci To Go?

There is a “circle of life” type of thing that goes on in basically everything. Anthony Fauci is finding that out the hard way. The guy that was one of two heads of Donald Trump’s COVID team and has since basically thrown Trump under the bus, and gotten on board the Biden train, has realized that he may have stepped in it up to his neck…if not hire.

It may be time for Anthony Fauci to go.

Fauci has been at the forefront of a LOT of criticism lately. More and more mainstream media types are waking up to the realization that Donald Trump was probably more right than wrong over the COVID virus coming from that lab in Wuhan, China. As it turns out, Fauci was more involved than previously thought with that lab. First of all, he has admitted that the United States gave that lab money to do research. That would have been a major red flag in most people’s worlds when it was learned that the Coronavirus came from Wuhan. But wait…there’s more.

Fauci it’s now learned, has a trail of emails with bunches of people that had the similar thoughts as Trump early on. Fauci basically dismissed their ideas as conspiracy theories and nonsense. But it’s looking more and more (we don’t have, and probably never will get positive proof) that the Chinese lab started the whole pandemic. And we are learning that Fauci was more involved with it than originally thought.

Look, this guy has never come clean with America. First he’s telling us that masks aren’t the answer. We certainly don’t need to wear masks…save them for the front-line workers in the hospitals who are treating people. Then of course, we rush out and buy tons of masks from where? China. Oops. Then Fauci says we SHOULD be wearing masks. It’s the safe way to get through the pandemic. Then he’s photographed at a ballgame of all places, WITHOUT a mask on.

Fauci has flipped and flopped more than a freshly caught bass that’s just been reeled into the boat. He hasn’t been long on facts, he’s been long on BS. And there’s a problem when someone that is supposedly one of the top people in his field resorts to BS. It means either he’s on the take and doesn’t want the truth to be learned, or it means he just doesn’t know and doesn’t want the world to realize how ignorant he is on a subject he’s supposed to know a lot about.

No, it’s time for Anthony Fauci to retire, or quit, or be fired. However Joe Biden and his team decide that Fauci’s tenure in government should wind down, this guy is bad news and has to go. Unfortunately for Fauci, he isn’t able to hide behind extremely partisan voters in his district like other incompetents such as AOC, or Ilhan Omar, or Nancy Pelosi or Maxine Waters, or Adam Schiff….I could go on and on.

The time has come, Anthony. Resign now and at least save whatever little face you have left. You’ve become a laughing stock and nobody believes you anymore.

Your Taxes Are Going UP!

The G-7, meeting yesterday unanimously decided that you don’t pay enough in taxes. Regardless what Joe Biden promised when he was running for president, even if you and your family make less than $400,000 a year, you’re going to be seeing a tax increase soon. It will be at least a 15% bump.

Here’s why.

The G-7, comprised of the United States, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, and the UK have decided that in order to make sure that multi-national companies all “pay their fair share”, they need to pay a global tax. So, every single company that does business outside of the United States in any way, shape, or form, will have to pay a 15% tax, and it could be as high as 20% on any company that makes a profit of 10% or more.

So how do YOU get taxed on this?

Have you ever known a company not to pass on their costs to consumers? Of course they will! And this is no difference. Companies the world over, that do business everywhere, think major corporations have just had a 15% hit to their bottom line. And the person that’s responsible for this? United States Treasury Secretary, Janet Yellen.

Yellen has been pushing this idea inside the White House since she got the job. It’s her way to “insure that the middle class isn’t hit with tax increases” while the government gets much needed money so they can pay for Biden’s outrageous $6 trillion budget. It takes wealth redistribution to a whole other level.

When you think about it, companies for years have been able to dodge paying taxes in the United States, not because of any fault of their own. They are following the tax code. And the tax code is full of loopholes. They get credits here in this country for foreign taxes paid. And they get credits for a ton of other things that brings their US liability down to zero. The left loves to parade those that pay no taxes as “not paying their fair share”, yet it’s Congress that writes the tax laws, and Congress that makes the rules. If they aren’t paying their fair share, and they aren’t breaking the law, then who really is to blame? It’s the people you and I send to Washington, DC.

The whole thing is a push to raise taxes on certain industries. Big Tech is most likely to be targeted by European countries that are upset that companies like Microsoft, Alphabet Google, Twitter, Facebook, and Amazon continue to rack up huge profits without paying any taxes in their countries, and they want to share in the wealth. Likewise, the Biden administration is looking at raising the corporate tax rates from 21% to 28% here in this country.

What does that mean for our economy? Traditionally, when you raise taxes it slows incentive. It will most likely mean that less will be spent on R&D, and less will be spent in bringing new products to the market, especially if when the costs are passed on to consumers, the consumers back off and don’t purchase as much. And, just saying here, it could very well bring an end to the “free” stuff that you and I have enjoyed on the internet since it’s inception. If Big Tech can’t make what they want to make through ad sales, and selling your personal information to anyone willing to fork over enough money, sooner or later places like Facebook and Google will become subscription based (Amazon already is if you have Amazon Prime!). It’s just going to be more and more expensive for Americans, middle class Americans to enjoy what they are doing for free now.

And you have Janet Yellen to thank for it!

Which Biden Is Right?

I’ll give it to Joe Biden. He’s got all of his bases covered. Well, he’s got all of THE bases covered. I guess that’s because if you have to change your mind on something in politics you’re known as a “flipper”, or a “waffler”. Biden could open an IHOP with all of the waffles going on!

Do you remember a Joe Biden that hung out with Robert “Sheets” Byrd? Byrd was in the Ku Klux Klan. In fact, he was a leader in the group, reaching some sort of title known as “Exalted Cyclops”. Joe Biden gave the eulogy at Byrd’s funeral. He called him a “mentor” and a “friend”. Today, Joe Biden is all about trying to win back the sins of the past by giving free money to people of color. Not because they’ve earned it. But because they have a different skin color. I was under the impression that was basically the whole definition of “racism”.

Do you happen to remember a Joe Biden back in 1994, when as a Senator he authored a crime bill? He said at the time that “the person that accosted my mother or your parents….doesn’t matter if they were deprived as a youth. It doesn’t matter if they had a background that um, allowed them to become socialized into the fabric of society. It doesn’t matter whether or not they are the victims of society. The end result is they’re about to hit my mother on the head with a lead pipe, shoot my sister, beat up my wife, take on my sons. So I don’t want to ask what made them do this? They must be taken off the streets.” That was a speech on the Senate floor on November 18, 1993. So, what about Biden these days? His Department of Justice is quietly taking all of the people that had been destroying government property in the past year in those riots, and have turned long-term sentences (10 years because of a Donald Trump Executive Order), and given them community service. Apparently, Biden’s mother, sister, wife, and sons weren’t in any of those buildings that got burned over the past year.

Do you happen to remember a Joe Biden that historically has said he opposes ending the filibuster. That’s the rule in the Senate that says you need 60 votes to invoke cloture and stop people from speaking (the Senate has no time limit on debates and a Senator can talk forever if they choose to do so). Of course, now, Biden is all in favor of canning the filibuster. He lambasted West Virginia’s, Joe Manchin, and Arizona’s, Kyrsten Sinema because they don’t favor blowing up the filibuster. Now he says he’s going to “fight like hell” to end the filibuster.

Finally, do you remember a Joe Biden who during the 2020 campaign promised not to raise taxes on people making less than $400,000 a year? Oops. Fast forward to this Joe Biden. Once he got elected, that magic number became the “household income”, meaning that if the household made more than $400,000 a year, they’d get a tax increase. And now, there’s talk with a $6 trillion budget sitting on the table waiting for Congress to pick it up, that even that may not fly. Biden will most likely have to lower that $200,000 per person number even further. Don’t be surprised if this becomes another George HW Bush moment, “Read my lips…no new taxes”. Remember what happened to him because of that!

These are just four of many examples of a president drunk with power. Biden sees this as a chance to make “real changes” in the fabric of our society. Actually, the fabric that needs changed is a new, sweeping immigration law that protects those of us that live in border states from getting invaded by illegals from the south. Actually, the fabric that needs changed is to hold people responsible for their actions and to stop making excuses for them when they riot and burn buildings, and then want to hang people in front of the Capitol for what happened on January 6th. Actually, the fabric that needs to be changed is to get this drunken spending under control and pay off our massive federal debt, so our grandkids actually have a future…at least one where they won’t be eating with chopsticks. Actually, the fabric that needs changed are the curtains in the White House.

EXTRA! Jobs Report…Biden Cheers, Economists Shrug

I have to wonder what color the sky is in Joe Biden’s world. It certainly isn’t blue. And I guess I’m being nice in that vein because I could wonder where he’s getting his medications filled. They are a lot more potent than anything I take.

The latest jobs report came out yesterday. You would have thought Joe Biden had just hit a home run in the bottom of the ninth of Game Seven of the World Series to bring his team the championship. Ah…that’s not what happened.

Let’s look at the numbers.

There were 559,000 jobs created in May. Yes, that is MUCH better than the dismal jobs figure that came out in April. But then again, it should. Businesses are opening up again, and they can’t find enough people to fill the jobs out there. But while over a half million jobs were created last month, the economists yawned. They had predicted about 100,000 MORE jobs would be created. So, while 559,000 jobs is a good number, it wasn’t what was expected. On that account, Biden loses.

But you’d never hear him say that. He thought he invented the word “job” based on his speech. Now, in fairness to Biden, the unemployment rate went down from 6.1% to 5.8%. But it should have. In fact, it should have gone down further. And I don’t mean on tripping a guy taking victory lap, but the economy HAD to roar back after a pandemic that has lasted going on 15 months.

Biden was quick to point out that HE was responsible for the bulk of the new jobs created in the economy. “We have now created over 2 million jobs in total since I took office, more jobs than have ever been created in the first four months of any presidency in modern history. Triple the rate of my predecessor, eight times the rate of President Reagan.”

And then he pulled a big one.

“In short, this is progress, historic progress, progress that is pulling our economy out of the worst crisis there has been in 100 years,” 

The worst crisis there has been in 100 years? Joe…have you heard of something that occurred from 1929 through World War II? It was called the Great Depression. That was less than 100 years ago, and I have a feeling those folks that lived through that would argue that the one year of suffering at the hands of a pandemic doesn’t come close to the 15 years of misery that they endured.

I guess we just chalk it up to another Bidenism. Yes, that’s a new word that’s going to be introduced into the dictionary soon. It means basically that regardless what was actually said, it’s the thought that wasn’t said that actually counts. So, even though Biden said it was the worst crisis in 100 years, what he really meant to say was, “we’ve finally turned the corner on COVID.”

Its a wonder whether or not the American public is smart enough, or tuned in enough to actually figure out that Joe Biden really doesn’t understand much. It’s caused his press relations people fits and many sleepless nights trying to figure out how to walk back all of the inane comments, like “Young black entrepreneurs don’t have lawyers and accountants to succeed.” It’s a Bidenism. What he meant to say was that young black entrepreneurs are opening their businesses on a shoe string budget a lot of times (not really true, by the way), and they can’t afford to hire the professionals that other races can. It’s a really racist comment if you think about it. First of all, I don’t know of ANY sustainable business in this country that doesn’t employ either an attorney or an accountant. They all do. Second, to suggest that they don’t is a slap in the face to every single black-owned successful business out there. He ought to be ashamed.

The gaffes just keep coming with this guy. And the only time you can tell that he is “self-editing” his teleprompter is when he looks down at the podium, shakes his head and mumbles something like, “Well, I better not say that. That’ll get me in trouble.”

And to think we have 43 more months of this!

Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
