EXTRA! Dodged That Bullet!

And to think…with all of the angst and criticism going on around the country right now about Merrick Garland’s decision to “personally sign the search warrant” for Mar-A-Lago, we could have very easily had that guy sitting on the Supreme Court bench for life!

That would have been a travesty of justice to say the least!

Merrick Garland, the current Attorney General of the United States of America, is the first and only Attorney General to sign a search warrant that instructs the FBI to raid the home of a former president. Bobo Obama never had this. Hillary Clinton never had this. Joe Biden never had this. Jimmy Carter never had this!

Why in the world would this idiot of a lawyer sign a document that had NEVER been signed in the history of our country before? Because he’s nothing more than a political hack, and not a very good one at that.

When I think back to Bobo Obama nominating this clown for the high court during his last year in office, and Mitch McConnell telling the world he wasn’t going to get a hearing, but that he was going to wait until the elections were over to see who won before granting Garland floor time for a confirmation hearing, I kinda sorta felt sorry for Garland. That was pure emotion and had no logic behind it. I know McConnel has taken a lot of crap from a lot of people over the years as Majority and Minority Leader in the Senate. But he was spot on for this one.

Can you imagine for a second (no longer than that please!) that Garland would be deciding constitutional issues? He would have been the worst Supreme Court justice in our nation’s history! As it is, I don’t know that he is going to be able to hold on to his job as Attorney General much past January if the GOP wins the midterms. Kevin McCarthy, the next presumptive Speaker of the House has already tweeted the Garland needs to clear his calendar for next year’s hearings, and to be ready to update his resume.

I know Democrats who don’t want to see Trump run against Biden are gleeful at this, even though most of them aren’t willing to comment publicly about it. And while I think that’s a pretty smart move that will save them embarrassment up the road, they need to realize the path they have put this country on is heading down the road to destruction. Forget an infrastructure bill. They need a bill that says Congress and the White House will follow the Constitution under the penalty of loss of all personal property.

What’s Going On With The Shootings?

I don’t usually say much about these mass shootings that have been going on. There’s usually enough grousing about it on both sides. Let me just say this. It IS a tragedy. However I think the media, who rarely gets anything right, and the Democrats and leftists out there are getting it wrong on one account. It ain’t the guns doing the killing. It’s other people.

Joe Biden called the latest mass shooting at a Tops Friendly Market in Buffalo, “a national embarrassment.” Presidents going back as far as the eye can see have tried to stop the violence. It hasn’t worked. So let’s take a look at why it hasn’t worked.

It’s not the guns.

If you look at what the left is saying, they are calling the latest shooting in Buffalo a “racist” killing. 18 year old, Payton Gendron was taken into custody after killing 10 people. He was arraigned Saturday evening on first degree murder charges. Gendron is white. The shooting occurred in a mostly black neighborhood. But is race the issue here? I think not. In 2021 in Boulder, Colorado, a Syrian man shot and killed ten people at a King Soopers grocery store. Look at the mass shooting in New York City on the subway last month. The shooter was black. Race isn’t the issue here.

Was it right-wing ideology? Nope. That doesn’t fit either. Shooters have crossed ideological lines all over the place. You can’t blame it on Trump. You can’t blame it on George W. Bush. You can’t even blame it on Biden or Obama. It’s not ideological.

So, what was it?

I’m going to have to join the ever-growing group that says it’s a mental illness situation. I think it’s basically the situation that we’re seeing a decline in our social fabric. What’s causing it? I really believe it’s the breakdown of the family, and a laxness in religious belief. We’re seeing fewer and fewer people going to church. We’re seeing families that are now second and third generation single parent households. And those kids grow up without the proper parental guidance. I’m not going to blame it on Hollywood or violent video games, though that may be part of it. But somewhere, these shooters have a few screws loose. That seems to be the cause, and that is the issue that needs to be addressed.

Let’s all agree on one thing. If you got rid of guns altogether, and no one had them, there would still be murders. People would be stabbed, bombed, strangled, you name it. Guns are convenient, yes. But guns aren’t the cause of the murders. People are the cause of the murders. And by the way, don’t blame Trump. In the last three presidents, Barack Obama in eight years in office had 18 mass shootings in which eight or more people were killed. Donald Trump had seven on his watch in four years. Joe Biden in 16 months has had 12.

I know the familiar mantra is to blame the guns and call for the banning of assault rifles. That doesn’t matter. Until we start getting serious in this country about mental health, and not allowing those that aren’t sane to have guns, this will continue. Payton Gendron was a racist, that we know is true. But he also had to be mentally ill. You don’t travel three hours from home to target a black neighborhood’s grocery store and then target blacks in that grocery store if you’re all there mentally. Banning guns isn’t the problem. Banning people that shouldn’t have guns is. That’s not to say that is going to get rid of the problem either, but it will help.

Look at the city of Chicago. There are more shootings in Chicago than just about everywhere else in the country. There have been 186 murders in Chicago (up to the point this was written) in 2022, and there were 800 there last year! And this is a city that has outlawed guns. How is that happening? It happens because the shooters don’t care if they are breaking the law of having a gun. They are already breaking the law in murdering someone. Why would they care if you tack on another three years to a life sentence?

Until the leftists realize what the problem really is, and take steps to solve that problem, you’re going to see these mentally ill people continue to shoot up America. What’s it going to take to get them to realize, guns don’t kill people. It’s the person with their finger on the trigger.

Dems’ Increase Call For Filibuster Removal

The apparent overturning of a key Supreme Court case from 50 years ago is fueling a blazing fire in the Senate and beyond. And while it’s got something to do with Roe v. Wade being potentially overturned, it has more to do with the filibuster in the Senate staying or being removed.

First of all, a quick reminder. The filibuster has been in place since 1806. It wasn’t a part of the Founding Fathers’ original design of the government. But early lawmakers realized that the makeup of the Senate was markedly different from that of the House. So, they created a way to slow things down and deliberate the ideas a little longer. They created the filibuster, which basically said that anyone can stand on the Senate floor and talk for as long as they want. If, by chance, they talked until a quorum wasn’t available, then the topic they were debating would be called for a vote, and it would die for lack of a quorum. It was rarely used and made headlines when it was used for the first 200 years or so. Then in the 1970’s the rules were simplified. Instead of having a Senator speak for 24 hours (which is still available today), if a filibuster was threatened, they’d just move on to other business. Nowadays, if a bill doesn’t have 60 votes, they don’t even try to get it passed unless they want to show the world who is voting for and against something.

OK, with that in mind, the Democrats are calling for a filibuster removal so that they can “codify Roe v. Wade” in law. That means they would pass a federal law that would make sure that abortion was legal in all 50 states. However, according to what I’ve read in the leaked ruling that is coming out next month, that probably wouldn’t fly either. It wasn’t the legality of abortions that was in question in the Mississippi case the court was hearing. It was more of a states’ rights issue. It sounded like abortion could still be legal where you live if your state decided it to be a good thing. Therefore, if the federal government decided to “codify” the law, it would still violate the 10th Amendment, and would most likely end up back in the Supreme Court, where it would get batted down.

But what the Democrats fail to understand is that the filibuster move may hurt them more than it helps them. Filibusters help the minority party, and hurt the majority party. And while a filibuster in codifying Roe would in the short term, help the Democrats, in the long run it will kill them. If they were to lose control of the Senate in November, starting next January, they wouldn’t have any filibuster in place to protect them against anything the Republicans wanted to do. It would be what I call the “Harry Reid fiasco” all over again.

Reid went nuclear when he couldn’t get Bobo Obama’s federal judge picks confirmed, so rather than tell Bobo to get somebody less socialist, he did away with the need for 60 votes for all presidential appointees except Supreme Court Justices. That helped out Obama, but it also helped Republicans more. When they got into power, they expanded the Reid fiasco to include the Supreme Court nominees. And that’s how we got a 6-3 conservative court. Had Reid never pulled that trigger, the high court would be a LOT less conservative.

The word to Democrats is caution. Be careful what you wish for today, because as we’ve seen in the past, it can bite you in the butt tomorrow!

Obama’s Revisionism

What is it about Bobo Obama lately? The guy all of a sudden has been popping up in the news left and right. It’s as if he see what a buffoon Joe Biden is making of himself and the presidency, and he wants to step in and “save” the day. He did it last week when he attended that Obamacare event at the White House. And of course that turned out to be anything but a Biden Builder of confidence. I’m sure you’ve seen the video of Joe wandering around looking for someone…anyone…to talk to while all of the audience was crowded around Obama.

Then we get him, a week ago today, talking at the “Disinformation And The Erosion Of Democracy” conference at the University of Chicago. He was doing one of those sit down and talk to some moderator (Jeffery Goldberg, Editor of The Atlantic), and basically said, “I will say that, as someone who grappled with the incursion into Crimea and the eastern portions of Ukraine, I have been encouraged by the European reaction. Because, in 2014, I often had to drag them kicking and screaming to respond in ways that we would’ve wanted to see, from those of us who describe ourselves as Western democracies.”

Huh?

I think Bobo is remembering his time in the White House a little different than what really happened. Let’s go back, shall we? In 2012, wasn’t it Bobo that chastised one Mitt Romney during a presidential debate when Romney said that Russia was our number one threat? Didn’t he say something like “The seventies called and they want their foreign policy back”? And what exactly did Obama “grapple” with when Russia invaded Crimea and the eastern portions of Ukraine? As I recall, he may have put some meaningless sanctions on a few Russian oligarchs, but he never did anything when Russia took over Crimea.

This revisionist history isn’t going unnoticed by folks in the Twitterverse. Oh, there were plenty that called Obama out for his making up (another word for “lying”) stories about how tough it was for him, but he prevailed and succeeded. He didn’t succeed against Russia. In fact, I do remember that he was in a “hot mic” situation with Dmitry Medvedev, when he was president. It was just before Obama’s reelection campaign of 2012. He explained to Medvedev that he had this election coming up, and for Dmitry to let Vladimir know that he could “be much more flexible after the election”. But I guess that one never made the history books did it?

Somehow, and I’m really not sure how, we need to make sure that when these presidents leave office, they leave office. It doesn’t help anybody, especially the guy sitting in the Oval Office who now has to compete with someone that views themselves as “a legend”. In Obama’s case, he’s not.

What’s The Outcome For Hunter Biden?

Over the past couple of weeks, there have been a myriad of news organizations change their story when it came to Hunter Biden. Back before 2020, they all said that the laptop was a hoax. It was Russian propaganda. They were ready to stake their news credibility on the fact that all of this wasn’t true. And now, the New York Times, the Washington Post, ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, and MSNBC all have joined the dance in actually reporting that there were indeed emails that were found on that laptop. And there were indeed instances where it looks like the Biden family made money off of Ukraine and yes, China.

So, let’s look at the next obvious question. What is the outcome here for Hunter Biden?

Not since the days of Richard Nixon resigning over Watergate has there been a presidential family thrust into a criminal spotlight. Even Nixon escaped being charged with anything after receiving a pardon from Gerald Ford. But that doesn’t mean that there haven’t been issues with various families. In fact, to say that a president and his family skated through at least four years in the White House without scandal is a rarity.

When you look at all of the scandals that have materialized over the past five presidents, for example. Each one could have been charged with a crime (or their family could have). Yet, because it seems we are in a Teflon age for these folks, nothing ever seems to happen to them. Bill Clinton lost his license to practice law, but there were so many scandals in his administration it’s hard to count. And was anyone ever brought to trial over the death of Vince Foster. Oh, I know…it was ruled a suicide. But there was plenty of evidence to suggest otherwise, and that evidence was never followed up. George W. Bush had some very shaky dealings that got him out of the Texas Air National Guard, and why he lost his flight status.

Then you had Bobo Obama. And while a lot of the stuff did indeed deal with members of his administration, it’s hard to believe that Obama himself wasn’t in on a lot of this. Stuff like the whole Benghazi fiasco (which involved Hillary Clinton); or maybe you’ll remember the IRS Scandal that wouldn’t allow right wing organizations tax exempt status, while allowing liberals to fly through inspection? Then there is the AP phone wire taps, and looking into Fox News Reporter, James Rosen (now of Newsmax). And of course, there was the whole Fast & Furious escapade where guns were sold to people believed to be smugglers, in hopes of tracing them back to Mexican drug cartels. That one resulted in the death of Border Patrol agent, Brian Terry. Eric Holder was held in contempt of Congress for that one, but nothing ever happened to him.

Then you’ve got Donald Trump. Sure he got impeached twice over what I would call “ticky-tack” charges, basically drummed up by House Democrats. And then there was his “misbehavior” over the whole January 6th thing at the Capitol.

Now, you’ve got Biden who came into office under a cloud because of his son, Hunter. Oh, he denied it throughout the campaign. But now, he’s facing the music. And what will happen to Hunter?
Well, if the FBI is actually non-partisan, and the Department of Justice is also non-partisan as is claimed by both institutions, they will proceed and if there is enough evidence to convict, they will try Hunter on a myriad of charges ranging from tax evasion to violation of the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA), which says that you have to register with the Department of Justice when you work for a foreign government. Both could bring not only hefty fines, but also jail time.

And then there are the emails that point at Joe Biden actually getting his hands into the cookie jar, as Hunter outlined in an email that there had to be money set aside for “the big guy”, referring to Joe.

So, what is Hunter looking at? If he were a “normal person”, each charge (and we don’t know how many charges are to be filed at this point) carries a maximum jail time of five years, and a $250,000 on top of the taxes that were evaded and need to be paid along with interest and penalties. At the minimum, he’s looking at 10 years in prison, and $500,000 in fines, plus over $1,000,000 in overdue taxes.

And then there is “the big guy” in this equation. He can, of course, make all of this go away with a simple pardon. And if Joe Biden pardons Hunter, with all of the publicity that’s been going on, what do you think that does for his chances to be reelected in 2024? Well, let me put it another way…how much did pardoning Richard Nixon cost Gerald Ford for his election bid against Jimmy Carter in 1976? It killed him.

And then there’s the other “conspiracy side” to this whole topic. We’ll cover that tomorrow!

Joe Biden’s Feckless European Trip

Last week, Joe Biden went to Europe to deal with the Ukrainian war situation. He met with NATO members, he met with Polish President, Andrezj Duda. And he met with Urkainian refugees, some two million of whom went to Poland when they fled their homeland.

In a word, Biden’s communications were seen basically as feckless, and he did nothing to dissuade the notion that he is a weak and ineffectual leader. His words did nothing but get the White House staff back in Washington forced to go to work earlier so they could correct Biden’s ill-timed and incorrect statements.

Biden calling Russian President a “butcher” wasn’t the worst thing he did. Though that has been reserved over and over for people more like an Idi Amin, Pol Pot, and yes, Adolf Hitler. Now, don’t get me wrong. Putin has killed countless people, both of his own nationality and thousands of Ukrainians. But a butcher? Well, if that’s the case, the same moniker can be applied to not only Joe Biden, but Bobo Obama, and both George HW Bush and his son George W. They all have been guilty of killing thousands of non-citizens in their fight for “American truth and justice”.

Biden’s biggest slip was when he mentioned that Putin “cannot remain in power”. First and foremost, this was a throwback to Bobo Obama’s comment that Hafez al-Assad be removed as the President of Syria. Where did Obama, and now Biden get off having anything to say who should be the leader of a foreign country and who should not? Look, I’m not a fan of Vladimir Putin. The guy is bad news from the word go. But let’s be honest here. Putin was elected President of Russia. That means he was voted into office by the Russian citizens. That makes him every bit as legitimate as Joe Biden getting elected by American citizens. So, where does Biden get off telling the world that Putin cannot remain in power?

Just because you don’t like a leader doesn’t mean that they need to be replaced. Frankly, I’ve felt for a very long time that Joe Biden needs to be replaced as President. I have more right to say that, as an American citizen, than Joe Biden has the right to say that about Putin, or any other foreign leader in the world. Who died and made Biden world boss?

And of course the White House went into overdrive to “correct” Biden’s statement, saying that he could not remain in power as far as taking over other independent countries. It was a huge stretch, and everybody in the world understood what Biden said was a major gaffe. Russia offered their own response to Biden’s outrageous remarks stating that “Russia’s ruler is not to be determined by Mr. Biden.” As much as I don’t like Vladimir Putin, his people were correct in their rebuff.

Somebody needs to get to this addle-minded “leader of the free world”, and let him know that his words mean things. And he can’t go off script. He can’t let his emotions get the better of him, as they did in Poland. A decent President, not even a good or great President, knows that. Biden apparently does not. If he would have stuck to the script, instead of trying to ad lib his way out of it, this could have been another speech comparable to Ronald Reagan’s “Tear Down This Wall” speech given at the Berlin Wall. Instead, it gets tossed onto the scrap heap of blown opportunities and gaffes that has become common place with this administration.

Joe Biden is not a strong leader. And his words, however tough he tries to sound, do not give him the right to try and overthrow foreign governments. The sooner this idiot realizes that, the better off we all will be.

Inflation Not Backing Down

Remember when we started seeing inflation last year? Remember when it was basically called “transitory”. It wasn’t a big deal. It was going to go away in a month or two. Nothing to see here, folks…move along!

Then it became a COVID problem. The reason everything bad was happening in America wasn’t because of Joe Biden. It wasn’t because of Democrats in Congress. It was because of COVID. Once the whole Coronavirus thing passes, inflation rates will come down. I even heard a talking head pundit say that it was Donald Trump’s fault, even though he was months removed from any federal decision making!

And then of course, it became a Ukraine problem. It’s always something. Gas prices going to the moon is now “Vladimir’s prices”. Inflation last year closed out the year at about 7%. The February 2021 to February 2022 tally now shows inflation at a 7.9% rate, with no real sign of slowing down.

I had spent quite a bit of time last fall talking to a bunch of money people that I know around the country. Some are Democrat, some are Republican. All of them told me basically the same thing. Inflation in 2022 was going to be somewhere in the 7-10% range. Inflation looking ahead if nothing changes would be 10-13% in 2023 and we would most likely get a recession along with that. The severity of the recession would be basically determined by how the government reacts to it. If Biden panics and tries to help us out by spending more money, it will be a longer, much deeper recession. It will basically be what you saw under Obama. If Biden lets nature take it’s course, it will be a lot less severe, and shorter in length. So far, these guys and gals have been spot on in their analysis.

Inflation is back with numbers we haven’t seen since Jimmy Carter’s term, and the very beginning of Ronald Reagan’s when he tried to clean up Carter’s mess. Gas prices have risen over 40% in the last year alone. Real estate prices are up about 25%. Construction costs vary depending on where you live, but they’re through the roof. And if you can find what you want at the grocery store, you’re paying about 12-15% more. Meat is a LOT more than that out here.

Regardless what you choose to believe, and where you want to place the blame, it falls squarely at the feel of one Joseph Robinette Biden. We didn’t have inflation before he took office. Well, we did…it averaged about 1.5%. The Fed wasn’t concerned about inflation and was doing a good job keeping it in the 1.5-2.0% range. Then Biden took over and started printing money. And the inflation rate went up. See any correlation?

Biden is to blame for this spike in prices. It’s not a supply chain issue due to COVID. It’s not a problem because workers refused to get vaccinated. It’s simple Econ 101. When you print a lot of money, the money out there in circulation becomes worth less, and it takes more of it to purchase goods and services. THAT is what happened. And Biden is just playing games to avoid being blamed. Well, I just blamed him.

Filibuster Rules Change?

Chuckles Schumer realizes he’s in a terrible position. Having just 50 Democrats in the US Senate is like having 10. They really can’t do anything without the Vice President coming along for the ride. And trust me, Schumer realizes that unless you can convince the Senate Parliamentarian that you can use the “budget reconciliation” measure to pass something with only 51 votes, you’re doomed.

Chuckles Schumer is doomed.

So, in typical Democrat style, if they can’t win, they cheat. If they can’t cheat, they change the rules. And that’s the position that Schumer finds himself in today. He can’t win when it comes to what he feels is the most important legislation he’ll deal with this year, which is his voter “rights” legislation. It’s designed to make sure no Democrat anywhere in the country ever loses another election. And it has nothing to do with the budget, so according to the filibuster rules, he needs 60 votes to get it passed. And therein lies the rub.

So, Schumer wants to get rid of the filibuster. Maybe not altogether (though he’d love that), but on this ONE item. Then he could insure that his party could always win their elections because it would make it impossible for Republicans to compete. It’s the ultimate stab. He’s got a problem or two however. Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) are standing in the way. He still would need 50 votes, plus K-baby Harris to get rid of the filibuster. And he doesn’t have the votes to do that. Manchin has said that the talk has been to do a “carve out”, which is basically an exception to the rule. He’s not in favor of that either.

IF (and it’s a pretty big if) the Democrats are able to finagle the rules to get the filibuster rule changed, they’d be able to get the voting rights issue passed. And that is their ultimate goal prior to the November elections, because it’s the only way they see of keeping Congress under Democrat control. And there is another rub they aren’t seeing.

Let’s call that the Harry Reid Rule.

See, Reid is the guy that decided back when Bobo Obama was president that he was going to have to allow only 51 votes to approve confirmations of everyone except Supreme Court Justices. That meant Bobo could pack the courts. And he did. But what Reid didn’t count on was losing the Senate to Republicans and then they could add to that rule, or should I say take away from that rule. Rather than making 60 votes confirming Supreme Court nominees, they included that in the Reid Rule. Now it only takes 51 votes to confirm a Supreme Court nominee. What helped Reid out in the short term, has allowed the Supreme Court to swing to a 6-3 conservative court. And it allowed Donald Trump to appoint 261 federal judges (in several different courts). By contrast though, Obama appointed 349 federal judges in his eight years.

So, my theory is that if the Democrats are able to somehow change or suspend the rules for the filibuster for their voting rights act, it’s going to be problematic for them when the Republicans take charge again (and they will). First of all, the law will be challenged, and it will have to go to the Supreme Court eventually. It will be found unconstitutional, and voided. But second, it will allow the Republicans to make further inroads and further tear up the Senate. Did the Dems learn their lesson with Harry Reid? All they are doing is causing a short term victory that will at some point be overturned by the Supreme Court.

The best way for the Dems to move forward is to try and play fair. If you can’t do that, you lose. It’s about the only thing that makes any sense. Of course, Democrats don’t make much sense!

Biden’s Biggest Problem Isn’t The Voters

When you have to take a look at the predicament Joe Biden finds himself in, you would naturally look at his approval rating at 38%, his chances for maintaining a majority, however slim, in the House and Senate, so his misguided agenda could move forward. You might look at the infighting that’s occurring between the progressive socialist snowflakes and the more moderate Democrats, which has been basically the only reason it took him all of this time to pass a signature infrastructure bill that 62% of the people in this country wanted. But that’s not Joe Biden’s biggest problem. Nor is it the Democrats’ biggest problem.

Kamala Harris is their biggest problem.

I’m sure you’ve heard by now that there has been infighting between Biden’s advisors and staff and Harris’. The reason is relatively easy to discern. Harris is not a leader. She has fumbled the ball every time it’s been given to her. Now, there’s debate as to whether Biden gave her tasks that he didn’t want to do because he knew that they would have an unpopular outcome regardless which way they went, and he was trying to shield himself. Or maybe, I’m be way too kind to think he has that much planning capability. Either way, K-baby Harris has done nothing right since she’s been in her current post. She has an approval rating that’s now 10 points lower than Biden’s. She’s got all sorts of Democrats betting that Biden isn’t going to run for reelection in 2024, and that she’s not going to be nearly strong enough to carry the ball across the line if she decided to run.

The rumor I’ve heard a lot lately is that Biden is trying to figure a way out of this mess. He knows if something were to happen to him, either he has a stroke, dies, or gets 25th Amendmented, that she would be there to take over. And while she has been an even bigger buffoon than he has been, nothing she’s done so far rises to the level of impeachment. The rumor is that Biden is thinking of actually promoting her up the ladder to get her out of the White House by nominating her to the Supreme Court should Steven Breyer retire or die. But like most of Biden’s other plans, I don’t think this one has been thought through carefully. First of all, I don’t know if there are the votes in the Senate to get her approved. She’s pissed off a lot of people in the upper chamber while she was there, and a lot more since she left. Confirmation is nowhere near certain. And that’s more egg on Biden’s face that Jill needs to wipe off.

My feeling is that Biden needs to get her to resign, which I don’t see happening either. I mean, if you were in a job that you couldn’t be fired from, and you knew you were in over your head, but it was a cushy job and when you’re done, you could retire to a life of luxury at a relatively young age of 57, wouldn’t you want to hang on for as long as you could? So, resignation is out of the question. Short of being impeached, there are few other options on the table.

And that is Joe Biden’s dilemma. He made a terrible choice for Vice President, and as was the case with Bobo Obama, being the first woman Vice President, and first person of color as Vice President, she hasn’t done her race or her gender proud. At least Obama played like he was a success. Harris can’t even do that. She’s been an unmitigated failure. Even Democrats are saying that.

Oh, if you really look at the uber-leftist snowflakes, they are saying that the reason Harris is getting all of this negative attention is because Americans are racist or misogynistic. Neither is really a factor in this case. Harris is getting this negative attention for the same reason Dan Quayle got all of the negative attention he got under George HW Bush. He was an idiot and never deserved to be in the position in the first place.

There is no easy solution if you’re Joe Biden. Your best bet is to keep your head down, hope you don’t die in office, or have some debilitating disease, and make it to 2024 on your own so you can gracefully step down. After all, he wanted to be the president that was totally different than Donald Trump. I think he’s succeeded at that. He’s been a flop by all accounts.

Biden’s $$ Plan Vs. “The Score”

The Congressional Budget Office has started, mind you, only started to weigh in on what the yet to be passed Biden plan for spending will cost. The “Build Back Better” plan is going to be north of a trillion dollars even by the most conservative budget, but how far north? Remember when Biden’s old boss, Bobo Obama was trying to get his healthcare initiative passed? He swore it HAD to be under $1 trillion, and it came in at $900 billion. Actually it was over that. About two years later, the CBO came back and said Obamacare was going to cost America about $1.76 trillion. That’s about double what the original cost estimates were.

And so, we take a look at Biden’s massive spending boondoggle.

Now, to be fair, the CBO has 13 committees to look at their recommendations. It has only looked at four of them. The four are the House Veterans’ Affairs, Small Business, Homeland Security, and Science, Space and Technology committees. And the cost for the four of them is going to be about $20 billion additional over the next ten years. That’s not a bad number, and actually I’m in favor of spending a LOT more in Veterans’ Affairs! I’ve often said if you serve your country, you should be getting the Cadillac healthcare plan for life for you and your family for free. You were willing to sacrifice your life if need be. Free “great” healthcare is the least the country can do to show it’s gratitude.

The problem I have with the CBO is they rarely get the number even close to accurate. Look at the Obamacare figure for instance. They missed it by half of the actual amount. That would be a 50% in school and that’s an “F”.

Biden has said that he’s going to spend about $1.75 trillion on his plan, and hopes to raise $1.45 trillion in new taxes. That is a pipe dream. Democrats have this problem with getting things to pay for themselves. In this case, the cost is going to be more like $3.5 trillion (which is what the scaled down version of Biden’s wish list was), and the taxes that come in from the tax hikes “to the rich” and to corporations is going to be roughly $800 billion. That leaves about $2.7 trillion in debt, which goes right to the federal debt and gets picked up by China in the form of bonds that they are buying. Is that really where we want to be?

Biden’s plan, like his administration lacks a lot of attention to details. He’s big on Green New Deal stuff, but has no solid basis other than government funded (by a liberal government) studies that it’s going to be able to do anything. They have computer models that were ginned up to show huge gains to an increasing average temperature, but no one other than savvy scientists who aren’t dependent on government funding (very rare), and former climate change guru, Michael Shellenberger, who has debunked the whole climate change theory as a hoax to get more money.

Now, having said all of that, I’ll go on record and say you really can’t blame the Democrats. Well, you can, but you have to do so understanding that their whole mantra for the last 80 years has been that government can solve all of your problems. It doesn’t matter if it’s poverty, racism, equal pay for equal work, or something that mankind has nothing to do with…climate change. It’s failed at all of the things it says if we throw enough money, and pass enough laws, we can solve the problem. Some things, sorry to say Democrats, cannot be legislated. Our climate is one of them.

But I get it that they need to try. Because if they don’t at the very least try to “save the planet” with massive spending and send us down a very dark, and very deep rabbit hole that there is no end to and no way out of, they lose the argument that their entire existence is based on. And that’s the real problem here. They have to double down because they can’t lose. If they do, they lose everything. So, they keep doubling down and the demands get wilder and wilder because they have to.

Biden’s spending plan has most Americans shaking their heads at the lunacy of it all. Most people are starting to wake up to the fact that Democrats’ plans aren’t well thought out, and certainly are not fiscally sound or based on fact. They’re based on a wish list of ideas that give the largest groups of people a payout in hopes of gaining their future votes. And that in a nutshell is the Democrat party. It’s also one giant reason why they need to be defeated at the polls to the point where the party dies. It’s the only way we as a nation survive.

Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
