Life Expectancy Drops…Biden The Cause?

It hasn’t happened since the last worldwide pandemic. Life expectancy in the United States dropped by a year and a half last year. Now, I know what you’re thinking…it’s Trump’s fault because he was in office. Well, I’m not buying that one. And while Joe Biden hid in his basement during the campaign, afraid to come out and face We The People, except to very small numbers, he and his fellow Democrats shoulder a lot of the burden that occurred last year.

The life expectancy rate dropped from 78.8 years overall to 77.3. The former number was the highest average life expectancy this country has ever experienced. And yes, about 77% of the decline was due to COVID, which wasn’t anyone in THIS country’s fault (I’m looking at YOU, China!). But overall, there was a decline in the quality of life as well as Democrat administrations around the country closed businesses for extended periods of time, far longer than the Trump administration’s closing.

But is it fair to blame Joe Biden? My answer would be yes. Biden campaigned hard on Trump’s “failure” to bring COVID under control. He conveniently forgot that he was out campaigning while Trump was shutting down various segments of the society, and not allowing flights from China to the United States. In fact, Biden campaigned up through March 12th of last year. Trump shut down flights from mainland China on January 31st. If you’re keeping track, that’s 40 days sooner than when Biden went to hide in his basement. So, why blame Biden?

Biden bragged to the world that he had a 200 page plan that would bring COVID under control. He promised to vaccinate a million Americans a day if elected until we were all covered (which would take about a year according to his promise). What he didn’t tell you was that on January 20th of this year, Donald Trump had already hit and surpassed Biden’s promised figure.

And what’s Biden done since then? Not much really. While he swore up and down that Trump left the whole distribution of the vaccines in a shambles, he really never proved it. And the 200 page Bible on getting rid of COVID? Amazingly, Biden stopped talking about it when he entered the White House. Seems that most of the plan was copied from what the Trump administration was doing. Wait? Plagiarism? Biden? Really?

Biden failed to reach “herd immunity” on July 4th, like he said we would. He basically said that it was close to us celebrating a “normal 4th of July” with fireworks and cookouts. Whoops. That didn’t happen. Now, people that didn’t get vaccinated are getting free stuff, cash payments, trips, etc. just for doing what most Americans did for free a few months ago.

Still, while COVID has been the main cause of the life expectancy drop, Biden hasn’t done anything to really solve the problem. He’s kept Anthony Fauci on board as the face of the COVID pandemic in this country. Fauci has waffled more than an Eggo factory in the 16 months he’s held the position. And he’s gotten into tussles along the way. Not just changing his mind, but ignoring his own advice to the nation, and most recently getting into a shouting match with Senator Rand Paul (R-KY). Biden has continued to show faith in Fauci, even though most Americans have lost confidence in him.

I haven’t even mentioned in this so-called “year of the blacks” that black life expectancy dropped from 74 to 71. And Hispanic life expectancy dropping from 81.8 years to 78.8.

Did Dems’ Over Promise?

At times this past fall’s election seemed like a high school Student Council election. You remember that, right? Someone would get up and promise to make teachers give everyone “A’s” on their report cards, and would get cheers. And the next candidate would get up and say you didn’t have to come to school on Friday, and would get louder cheers. Then the third candidate would get up and promise a more cohesive and responsible student government, and get booed off the stage.

That was pretty much what Democrats all over the country did this past November. Think back to when Biden said that he had the solution for bringing the country together. He could solve the COVID problem in 100 days. He said that he’d be able to fix infrastructure, fix the border problem, he’d make sure that we adopted climate change regulations, we’d undo all of Donald Trump’s nasty conservative ideas. He’d be the most liberal president in US history. Remember all of that?

None of it is true.

Biden spent all of his political capital on a $1.9 trillion plan to “rescue America”. He hasn’t done squat at the border except make it worse…basically fixing a problem that Trump had already fixed. He hasn’t done anything with climate change other than rejoin the Paris Accords, which is going to cost you a few hundred dollars a year more in taxes. He’s joined with the other G-7 nations in pushing for an international tax on businesses who do international business and have more than a 10% profit, meaning that sooner rather than later, Google, Microsoft, Twitter, Facebook and the like will start charging you for using their services. Biden said he’d secure your right to vote, and make it easy as pie. There’d be no ID required, and you could send in your ballot by mail, no muss, no fuss. Of course, he didn’t foresee states like Georgia and Texas and a dozen other states waiting in the wings that have or will soon pass their own state voter initiatives, that while making voting in person easier, still will make you show an ID, and will limit mail-in ballots.

In short, Biden over-promised.

And now, as Democrats start to think about heading to the polls in 17 months from now, they are starting to wonder whether or not they over-reached in their promises. In their zest and zeal for replacing Trump, they may have over-played an already weak hand. I mean, let’s face it. Take COVID out of the picture and Trump wins in a landslide against Biden because even though he was hated by the left, the country was sailing along pretty well. Economically we were doing the best we had done since the 1990’s with the dot com craze. Unemployment was pretty well wiped out. The southern border problem appeared to be fixed. And while Democrats hated him, he was loved by his base. Could the Dems’ have over-promised in what they were able to get done?

When you consider there is only, what? a 9 vote margin for Democrats in the House, and a 50/50 Senate, basically either making sure all Dems’ are together on every issue, or that they’d need to rely on a vice president to break their ties, it’s a wonder they were able to get anything through. And they couldn’t if they hadn’t cheated so to speak and used budget reconciliation to advance Biden’s only major legislation to date to make it through Congress.

But the Democrats are going to have to answer why it is this is still a country divided. They are going to have to answer why nothing much has been done on anything…and how all of the major legislation that they promised would sweep through Congress and help the American people hasn’t materialized. The problem isn’t Republicans after all. It’s Democrats. They were going to pack the court. They couldn’t do that because they first needed to get rid of the filibuster, and Kyrsten Sinema and Joe Manchin, both Democrats stood in the way of that. Anything that doesn’t involve budget can’t be sent through budget reconciliation without wrangling the rules, which while Democrats are great at, they really stretch and break the current rules in place.

No, my initial feeling is Democrats are going to have a very hard time keeping both houses of Congress in 2023. Re-districting alone will cost them at least 7 seats in the House, and probably retirement will cost them at least two and maybe four seats in the Senate. If that happens, Joe Biden can wave goodbye to any major legislation he wants to have happen. Working across the aisle? Empty promise!

Biden’s Approval Continues To Crash

And you can’t blame Republicans for the latest drop in the approval numbers. This one comes to us from Newsweek, a rather liberal publication. They have basically stopped drinking the Biden Kool-Aid, and have actually started reporting some very interesting (and for Biden, troubling) information.

The last numbers that were released were from April of this year. It showed Biden with 54% approval rating, down from first year April numbers from Trump, Obama, and George W. Bush. The May numbers are even worse. Biden slipped another 6% to 48% approval and 43% disapproval in the latest poll.

What is interesting is that there was a gain in his approval numbers. It came from Republicans believe it or not! The GOP folks asked in the 810 respondent survey showed an increase from 11% approval to 19% approval. He dropped from 95% to 86% among Democrats, and went from 47% approval to 36% among Independents.

A whopping 80% of the country said that that we are going down the wrong road when it comes to the health of this country. That number was 90% in April, but the increase, once again, came from Republicans. Democrats saying we are on the right path dropped from 93% to 58% in one month! Independents rating us as doing the right thing with 32% compared to 38% in April.

So what does this mean? Basically, Democrats aren’t happy with Biden at all. They are not supporting his spending plans, and aren’t happy with his policies either at home or abroad. The mere fact that Republicans are giving him higher numbers than what Democrats are is very interesting to say the least. Maybe that’s why people like AOC and the Whackjob contingent, Bernie Sanders, and Chief Wahoo Elizabeth Sanders are not happy with Biden’s plans. And I think overall, most Republicans see the fear they felt when Biden was elected and was going to cater to the left wing of the party. They see that’s probably not going to happen, especially since more moderate Senators like Manchin and Sinema are starting to pull away from the uber-leftist-snowflake agendas being foisted by Chuck Schumer and company.

What the overall situation shows is that though Biden stresses he’s trying to bring the country together, more and more of his own people aren’t supporting him. And while a few more Republicans are, it isn’t enough to drop him into numbers that are close to him having a more negative than positive image among the voters. That’s a very rare instance to happen this early in a presidential term. Even Donald Trump was positive at this point. For Biden to show his weaknesses as much as he is should be sending red flags and blaring alarms through the White House.

The big question is, is there anything they can do to stop the bleeding?

Have The Tables Turned?

Do you happen to remember back when Donald Trump was president and Democrats in the House and Senate were adamant that he undergo some sort of mental test to prove that he was sane enough to lead our nation? Remember how there was all of this discussion as to invoking the 25th Amendment to the Constitution, which basically was written to take the power away from a president that can no longer function properly. It harkens back to 1965, when Congress passed it (it was ratified by the states two years later). So, what’s going on since?

One would have to agree that while Donald Trump was certainly more verbose and unpresidential when it came to his communications style, there really wasn’t anything in anything he did that suggested that he was not capable mentally to do the job throughout his four years. In fact, I’d argue the case that a lot of his issues and solutions were rather brilliant. But now, his former White House physician, Ronny Jackson (R-Tx), now a member of the House, who Trump ended up praising highly throughout his tenure at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, is calling for Joe Biden to undergo the same tests that Democrats demanded Trump take. In fact, Jackson administered a cognitive test to Trump as part of his annual physical. It showed Trump to be “very, very smart”.

So, why would Democrats not want Joe Biden to take such a test? What are they afraid of? Could it be that they realize that he’s not in full control of his mental faculties and that if he were to take such a test, he’d probably not come out of it smelling like a rose?

There are currently 14 House members, including Jackson, that have sent letters to Biden, the CDC, and to Anthony Fauci, asking that Biden take a mental acuity test for the good of the nation. Personally, I’m thinking that ALL presidents should take such a test every year as part of their annual physical, and the results of the test, along with the complete results of their medical exam should be made available online. Why would you not want a sitting president to demonstrate that he/she was capable of serious, long-thought out decisions, and that they had the mental ability to deal with the job they were elected to do?

Democrats want to make it so easy for Americans to vote. They don’t want you to have to show any drivers’ licenses, or any identification of any kind, though you’d have to show the same if you wanted to visit your Congressman or Senator. You’d have to show ID if you wanted to tour the White House or the FBI building. You’d have to show ID if you flew to Washington DC for all of that. And if you drove and wanted to stop for the night at a hotel, you’d have to show them your drivers’ license. So, what’s the big deal when it comes to showing a drivers’ license or other form of ID issued by the state or federal government for free when it comes to voting? Democrats want that so everyone is allowed to vote. They say they’re open and transparent. However, when it comes to the mental health of the Commander In Chief of our nation’s forces, someone who has his finger on the nuclear bombs of this country, we aren’t going to test to see that the person is mentally fit? Does that make sense?

It would seem to me that Ronny Jackson’s proposal is a good one. Now, it won’t go anywhere at least until after 2022’s midterm elections. But should the GOP take over both the House and Senate, I would hope that Jackson and his colleagues would revisit this proposal once again. After all, you can’t be a good president unless you’re a sane president!

Biden’s Next Broken Promise

Oh, it hasn’t happened yet. In fact, it isn’t scheduled to happen until probably the kids are all back in school. But trust me it WILL happen. That’s because the country can’t afford to not let it happen.

Joe Biden will break yet another campaign promise.

Biden campaigned vigorously in the fall last year that he was going to erase $10,000 in college loan debt. Students all over the country flocked to him. In fact, one could say, it’s probably what won him the election. At least one of the things. But just like having “the most ethical presidency in history and I’ll fire anyone who treats anyone poorly”, and then takes two months to wait for an aide to resign over poor behavior to a reporter…it’s failed. Just like promising that you won’t have any new taxes unless you make over $400,000 a year, and then woops… that became $400,000 per HOUSEHOLD. And then of course, it was Biden’s own Treasury Secretary that had secretly proposed and then publicly supported a 15% world tax on corporations that had a 10% profit margin or greater (which meant your prices were going to increase. Yeah, and this is the guy that promised he could “bring us all together” so we could have one big kumbaya party, and has failed. He had a 200 page plan to get rid of COVID. It failed. He ended up using Trump’s plan. He opened the southern border, and he’s fought for eliminating the filibuster in the Senate, though for 47 years he was against it.

And now, Joe Biden is going to be set to charge those poor students that bought his line of BS even more interest on their outstanding student loan debt. OK, let’s review for a second. When Donald Trump started closing everything down last February (while Nancy Pelosi was inviting everyone to “party in Chinatown”, and Joe Biden was still out campaigning), Trump decided to suspend interest and payments on student loan debt because of COVID. That has been in place since that time.

But COVID is waning all across the country. And now, as those kids are thinking about their next job, they are going to have their school bills coming due again. And it will be at a 1% higher interest rate than what they were paying last March. That’s all due to the inflation rate that Biden has caused. So, for every $10,000 in student loan debt these kids have accrued, they now need to pay an extra $529 or so in interest thanks to Biden.

Biden isn’t erasing the student debt. In fact, Biden has never erased the student debt. He postponed the inevitable. And because he’s fighting to pass a $1 trillion infrastructure package in Congress, and hoping to get some $6 trillion for a budget next year, he doesn’t have the money to deal with the student loan debt situation. They are going to learn the hard way not to listen to a politician’s promises!

So we can count that as broken promise #17 of 18 that Biden has broken in the first half year of his first term. How many more can he do? It’ll probably set a record!

Carry on world…you’re dismissed!

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.

Carry on world…you’re dismissed!

Making China Pay

It’s amazing that a year ago, the Trump administration, and Republicans in Congress came out and said that the Coronavirus was started in the Wuhan Institute of Virology in Wuhan, China. Everyone that came out and said that was where they thought the virus that caused a world-wide pandemic were all but castrated for their views. They were told they weren’t following the science. They were told they were conspiracy theorists. They were told they were crazy. They were vilified in such places as MSNBC and Morning Joe, CNN had a field day with the story, as did the New York Times, and the Washington Post.

And it turns out these so-called media experts were dead wrong. And now they can’t back-pedal fast enough. In fact, it’s so bad that several media outlets that actually said Trump was right in his summation of the entire COVID situation by calling it “a China virus”, have begun re-writing their headlines and stories that were posted on the internet. Now, they are starting to join the Trump bandwagon, much to their own chagrin.

While science was wrong, while the media was wrong, and while Tom Cotton, Donald Trump, Mike Pompeo, and a slew of others hit the nail on the head, there is still a problem out there. China caused this virus. China is responsible for this virus. China isn’t going to allow inspectors in to Wuhan to go through the Institute to make sure it happened there. And they’re denying this has cost the United States trillions of dollars. In fact, the Journal of American Medical Association (JAMA) has come out with a study that says that figure is about $16 trillion dollars.

So how do we make China pay?

China currently holds $1.6 trillion in US bonds. While that’s only 10% of the total cost for COVID in this country, it’s a start. They also own some 191,000 acres of land totaling $1.9 billion. That’s a sizable chunk of land. So, how do we make China pay? Simple. We start by nationalizing their land (as Mexico has done in the past and other countries have done). That 191,000 acres becomes federal land that can be sold back to the American people for pennies on the dollar. Most of the land China owns is actually farm land. As for the bonds that the Chinese hold, that becomes a down payment on their repayment of the debt from Wuhan that they caused. And if they don’t want to go along with us, they can allow the investigators in to do their research.

Now, I know the feeling out there is that America should never default on our debt. No, we shouldn’t. But this isn’t defaulting on our debt. This is making a guilty party who won’t allow an investigation to go forward to pay for what’s going on.

The other thing America needs to do, and the Trump administration was doing until they lost the election, was to basically ban China from doing business in the United States. Especially in the pharmaceutical industry. And though the amount of trade deficit with the Chinese has been shrinking over the past few years (from a high of around a half trillion dollars a year to about $300 billion a year), we could certainly damage their economy by pulling the plug on “Made in China”. Last year alone, China sent about $2.5 trillion around the world in exports, and leading the way was the United States with about 17% of that total. If you take 17% of their GNP away from them, you will most certainly hurt them financially.

The question isn’t whether we SHOULD do it. They question is whether the current administration has the guts to do it. And yes, it would be painful to the American people. Most of what we get in the way of electronics, and other household goods comes from China. The prices most certainly would go up. But they would be hurt as bad as us. Japan, South Korea, India, and Vietnam make up the rest of the top five trading partners. If you add up all of our allies’ figures as well, it would be hurtful to say the least.

Economically, could the US hurt China? Yup…but it’s not a question of could we. It’s a question of would we. And with the Biden administration in bed with China as they appear to be, my hunch is, it’s a pipe dream to hope we could ever hold them fiscally responsible.

OOPS! Notre Dame Slaps Down Biden!

It hasn’t been what I’d call a “long-standing tradition”. But it has in fact become a tradition. Notre Dame, that Catholic school in South Bend, Indiana, has been inviting the President of the United States to speak at their commencement during his first year in office. They did so with George W. Bush in 2001. They did so with Bobo Obama back in 2009, and they did it with Joe Biden this year.

Except they’ve had a change of heart.

See, most students that attend Notre Dame are Catholic, which makes sense. And in the Catholic church, abortion is not allowed. It’s a sin. And while the students raised a ruckus with Obama speaking back in 2009, he did actually speak. What’s interesting is that the nation’s first Catholic president, John F. Kennedy was never invited to speak at Notre Dame’s commencement. Neither was Donald Trump, Bill Clinton, or Richard Nixon. Instead, this year, the graduating students heard from someone almost as famous as Biden…they heard from finance executive and trustee at the University, Jimmy Dunne.

Here’s what the students had to say in their letter to the administration, citing that Biden should not give a speech, nor pick up the traditional “honorary degree” for speaking stating the signers of the petition were, “dismayed by the pro-abortion and anti-religious liberty agenda of President Joe Biden.”

They went on to say, “He rejects Church teachings on abortion, marriage, sex and gender and is hostile to religious liberty. He embraces the most pro-abortion and anti-religious liberty public policy program in history. The case against honoring him is immeasurably stronger than it was against honoring President Obama.”

Now, I have to say, being a consistency guy, that I applaud the students for their decision. Yes, I’m certainly pro-life, but what I’m applauding is their consistency to stay true to their church’s tenets. They could very easily have thought it an “honor” to have the POTUS speak at their graduation, but they decided against it. They felt it was much more important to be true to their belief system. Unlike Joe Biden and others like Nancy Pelosi, who hide behind their cloak of convenience, stating that while they personally are against abortion, they feel it’s up to the woman and they don’t want to get in the way. I kinda wonder what St. Peter would have said if faced with a similar decision on starting the Catholic church and being martyred for it, or deciding to say, “Yeah, I’m a Christian, and I believe in Jesus Christ as our Savior. But I don’t want to foist that onto other people, if they don’t want to believe in it.”

Sometimes you just have to put your beliefs ahead of popular culture.

That is one of the over-riding problems that I have with liberalism. Oh, they claim to be religious when it suits them. They tell everyone how they were raised a certain way, and how they were happy they were. Then they turn their back on everything and go with the flow because it’s easier, and they don’t lose the votes. Sometimes the right decision is hard. Sometimes people actually do give up their lives rather than their religion. It’s sad that we have a president and a Speaker of the House that don’t know how to do just that!

But then again, that’s most liberals, isn’t it?

Doing The Mask Shuffle

So, do you wear a mask now or not? The CDC’s own Director, Dr. Rochelle Walensky was speaking to Congress the day before she touted the now famous line, “If you’ve been fully vaccinated, you can attend indoor or outdoor activity, with large groups or small groups, without a mask”. She sang a different tune in front of Congress citing that masks were indeed necessary.


So, if I’ve been vaccinated, I do not need to wear a mask, regardless where I’m going, inside or out, with large groups or small groups. Or, maybe I do if I’m to believe what she told Congress less than 24 hours earlier. Now, Walensky states that she’s “following the science” on this one, and not kowtowing to political pressure from Joe Biden, who wants nothing more than to claim that HE is the one that oversaw the end of the Coronavirus. Walensky stated that science is moving so quickly with this disease that what was mask-mandated one day, was mask optional if at all, the next.

But wait, as Ron Popeil would say…there’s more.

On CNN last week, Walensky decided to deepen the doubt that this whole thing has been blown way out of proportion. She mentioned that there is a difference of people who died “with” COVID, and people who died “from” COVID. See, you could have COVID in your body, but actually die of a heart attack, or a stroke, or a gun shot wound. So, does that count as a COVID death? We’ve been counting them that way. In fact, the lady that’s in charge of infectious diseases at Johns Hopkins wrote an article that showed that last year, the deaths from COVID, pretty much matched the 2019 death rate of cancer, heart attack, stroke, etc. when added together. I had heard from a few sources that hospitals were being told to count those deaths as COVID related deaths even if the person that died was stabbed to death. Her article, by the way, was taken off of the Johns Hopkins website only a few hours after it was posted…but you know that anytime you post anything on the internet, it’s there forever. I actually posted that article in an earlier blog. You are free to search for it if you like.

But it makes sense now what this lady at Johns Hopkins was saying. IF everything was being reported as a COVID-related death, even if it was really due to something else, then the numbers the US was showing, including all of the crap that Joe Biden and K-baby Harris was spewing toward Donald Trump would be absolute BS. All of the campaign crap would have been a lie. And it’s sounding more and more like that may have been the case. As I say, the truth always comes out…and most of the time it’s a lot uglier than we are originally told about.

So, is this whole thing a major pandemic? Or was this some sort of conspiracy theory played out to see how much control governments could enforce on it’s people? Certainly when you look at the numbers that appear to be fudged, now admitted to by the Director of the CDC no less, you have to wonder. Were we conned? Were some people dying from this and most people were dying from other causes and would have died anyway if not having been classified as a “COVID-related death”?

Regardless which you choose to believe, whether you believe that the government was complicit in a campaign to control the population and see what they could get away with (and it would have to have included both Republicans and Democrats), or it was a real pandemic that was botched by classifying things that shouldn’t have gone under COVID as such, it’s the government that loses credibility. Frankly, can you believe your government now when they tell you something? I’m not so sure I can.

And who’s to say that this thing won’t rear it’s ugly head somewhere up the road? One thing I’ve learned from past government shenanigans, they like to keep pushing the boundaries as far as they can. Only this time, it’s your absolute freedoms that are on the line!

Saying Goodbye To “Circle Back”

Oh, it happens in Washington, DC a lot. In fact, Donald Trump had not one, not two, not three, but FOUR Press Secretaries over his four year term in the White House. But I don’t think that any of them made their intentions known publicly only four months into the job. Jen “Circle Back” Psaki is looking to move on.

Now, the official reason Psaki is giving is because she’s got rather small kids. Her oldest daughter is just starting Kindergarten this fall, and she says she wants to spend time with “her magical unicorn”. But you and I know that can’t be all of it.

The Press Secretary’s job is a 24/7, type of deal. It’s not something anyone would want to aspire to. I mean, if you’re looking at something like a 9 to 5 type of job, go down to your local bank branch. Press Secretaries have to be on call all the time. There isn’t a day off in the White House, and that means there is always news being made, and that means there are always reporters wanting to know every little detail about every little thing. With this president, it’s what time did he take his nap?; Did he get his oatmeal for breakfast today? How many lies has he told? Why hasn’t K-baby Harris gone to the southern border yet? And a myriad of other questions.

Psaki, you’ll recall was the State Department spokesperson when Hillary was there. She did a pretty good job, looked halfway decent on camera, and was able to do a semi-credible job at handling those guys at Foggy Bottom. And she was certainly a ton better than her replacement, Marie “Neato” Harf, who really was the epitome of a dumb blonde. Psaki got booted upstairs to the White House, though never took over the role of Press Secretary.

This go-around, she appears to have exemplified the Peter Principle. She appears to be well over her head, and I’m not so sure it’s her fault. She has her hands full making a stumbling, bumbling idiot like Joe Biden look and sound like he belongs as leader of the free world. It’s a job I wouldn’t wish on my worst enemy, because quite frankly, you’re going to end up losing, regardless what you say, or what you do.

Psaki told David Axelrod in his podcast recently that she probably will leave within the next year. That would put her on par with a bunch of Press Secretaries. And I would look for her to show up somewhere like CNN or MSNBC as a “Democrat strategist” or some such nonsense. Trust me, she ain’t about to become some homeroom mom for her daughter baking cookies and going on field trips to the zoo!

Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
