Worst President Ever?

If you’re going to listen to the latest poll taken by Politico/Morning Consult, the answer is going to be a resounding “YES!”

The publication asked in it’s most recent survey to give Joe Biden a grade on completing his first year in office. Only 11% gave Biden an “A”. Another 20% offered up a respectable “B”. 18% said a “C” was good enough and another 12% was close to failing him with a “D”. But a whopping 37%, the largest group by far, outnumbering the A’s and B’s combined, decided to flunk Biden on his first year in office.

The reasons were clear. Americans think Biden has done a bad job on three of the areas that he campaigned most on. Those three were the economy, which Biden constantly railed about on the campaign trail; immigration, which was basically fixed and not an issue under Trump, and “unifying America”, something Biden crowed at being able to do a lot better than Trump. His high marks weren’t all that high with only 35% gave him an A or B when it came to his actions on COVID, and 31% gave him the same score on healthcare.

It’s not a surprise to many people at all that only the most loyal of Democrats think Biden has been anything but a failure at his job. His rating was the worst in history, with more people flunking him after one year than gave Trump the same thumbs down after his first year in office (37% to 35%). And it only looks to get worse for Sleepy Joe.

Biden knows full well that the chances of Democrats keeping control of Congress are tipping on the precipice of an abyss. The mere fact that Chuckles Schumer decided to try and hold a vote on the voting rights act and to change the filibuster to a “talking filibuster”, knowing full well that both votes would be tanked is ample evidence of the Democrats’ feelings that they are doomed come November. Biden certainly can’t be blamed for the mess Democrats have made for themselves in Congress, but his weak leadership hasn’t helped anything either.

America’s distrust of the federal government is at an all-time high. Between Biden’s weakened position, a terrible response to Russia’s pounding on the door of Ukraine, an absolute disaster of a withdrawal from Afghanistan, and a general lack of world leadership has left most Americans feeling that Democrats can’t be trusted. In fact, studies have shown more people leaving the Democrat party and identifying as Republicans now more than ever in history. At the beginning of Biden’s term, 49% of Americans identified as Democrats and 40% identified as Republicans. By the end of the year, 47% identified as Republicans and 42% identified as Democrat. That’s a 14 point swing in just one year. And when asked, 62% of survey respondents replied that America is on the wrong path and needs new leadership.

It’s abundantly clear that Americans are loathing Democrat policies and poor leadership right now. They blame not only Biden, but Chuckles Schumer and Nancy Pelosi for the downfall. Schumer has shown to be over his head in trying to lead the Senate, and Pelosi has had no luck at all in trying to reel in the socialist arm of her party, instead settling to kowtow to the likes of AOC, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib and the like.

Most Democrat strategists will concede that there is little that can be done during the election year, and that they are ready to take their lumps in the election, and try and regroup afterwards. The interesting thing that seems pretty evident though is the people that are causing the problem, Biden, Schumer, and Pelosi, will still most likely be in Congress come next year at this time. And the likes of the Whackjob 5 will also be there as they were elected by wide margins in their home districts. If that trend continues, the left will push further and further from the center, where most of Americans reside.

What To Do With Omar?

Ilhan Omar (D-MN) is a Muslim first and an American second. She makes that very clear. That’s not bias. That’s not racist. That’s not anti-Muslim. That’s a fact. And there are a few Muslims in Congress that have the same the feelings. Now, let me say this first and foremost. I’m certainly a religious person and I believe that your belief in God, or Allah, or whomever you worship should indeed be first and foremost. But there is a problem.

What do you do when your religion is at odds with your job in government?

The latest problem with Omar occured when she said Lauren Boebert (R-CO) made an anti-Muslim comment against her in an elevator. Here was her tweet:

“Fact, this buffoon looks down when she sees me at the Capitol, this whole story is made up. Sad she thinks bigotry gets her clout. Anti-Muslim bigotry isn’t funny & shouldn’t be normalized. Congress can’t be a place where hateful and dangerous Muslims tropes get no condemnation.”

So what started this latest backlash? Well, Boebert was in an elevator with Omar. A Capitol Policeman ran up to the open door, and asked if everything was ok. Boebert replied, “Well, she doesn’t have a backpack”, referring to someone carrying an explosive device. That set off Omar on her latest rant.

Now, was Boebert’s comment anti-Muslim? Yes it was. Was it warranted? Well, that is open for discussion. From where I sit, some 2,337 miles from the Capitol, yeah, it was kind of warranted. Omar has made many comments that are over the top and very unAmerican. She is absolutely in the wrong career if she is so ready to tear down America and rebuild it as a Sharia Law State.

The question is, what do with do with her. The last election in 2020 showed that the people in Minneapolis, Omar’s district, aren’t anywhere near getting ready to bounce her. She, along with the other four members of the Whackjob 5 handedly won their contests. I’m never one that feels that you should overturn the will of the voters, even if it is at the behest of someone being anti-American. But at what point is enough enough?

If the GOP retakes the House in 2022, as is being predicted by pretty much everybody and their uncle, they should at the very least censor all of the Whackjob 5, and not assign them to any committees. But the way to make sure that they are really punished for their mis-statements and their lack of patriotism is to take away their podium. If the media were to not cover them, they’d be very much like Terry Sewell (D-AL). You’ve probably never heard of her, and that’s my point. She’s a Democrat, but she doesn’t make wild political anti-American statements. If Oman, AOC, Rashida Tlaib and the like, weren’t given carte blanche when came to the media coverage, they’d be very much like Sewell and a ton of other Congressmen and women that you’ve never heard of.

What are the chances of that happening? Very little. Unless and until the media is being redefined and “press” is defined as some organization that uses no more than reporting the facts with no bias on either side, there will be little chance of silencing someone who is obviously not a fan of the United States. That is what needs to happen in order to shut this racist, bigoted person. It needs to happen, not just with Omar, but with all folks who have a position of power, and want to denigrate the other religions of the world in favor of their view.

It’s Official…Masks Are A Waste!

If you are like me, you eschew wearing a mask in public. First of all, I’ve been fully vaccinated, and I don’t need a booster shot for a few months yet. So, I’m protected. Now, I realize there have been people that have caught this Delta Variant out there, and some have even died. And I’m not advocating, nor chastising anyone for not getting a vaccine. That is your choice. And frankly, I’m not one that believes the federal government should be telling you that you HAVE to get vaccinated when they have exempted Congress and all of the Congressional staffs from that mandate. That’s absurd.

So, I don’t wear a mask in public. The last time I did was flying back to the desert from Houston at the end of July. I used to keep masks in my car in case I needed one, but haven’t done that in a long while. And I don’t plan to.

If you need further proof that the whole mask thing is a way to keep you under politicians’ control and under their thumb, just listen to Whackjob Five member Rashida Tlaib. She’s the Michigan Congresswoman that was back in her home district over the weekend to do a few rallies. She was talking to someone who wasn’t wearing a mask. And they thought she was going to chastise them for not wearing one (she was), her comment was, “Oh, no, oh, not you!” Tlaib said in the video. “No, no, no – I’m just wearing it because I’ve got a Republican tracker here.”

The “Republican tracker” was a reporter from the Washington Beacon, who was video-taping Tlaib. And she hasn’t been the only politician caught not wearing a mask. Countless Democrats have been caught on camera not wearing a mask, then seeing the camera, they quickly put on a mask. As soon as the TV lights go out, they take the mask off again.

And of course, there is the picture that went viral about Whackjob Five member Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who appeared at that tony New York Met gala wearing the dress that said, “Tax The Rich”, remember that? No mask in sight. Of course there were a billion people at Bobo Obama’s 60th Birthday party back in August. No one was wearing a mask. No one was social distancing. No one cared about COVID. They were shaking their booty, drinking up a storm, and having a great time.

So, what does the left have to say about this? Well, they said those folks are all “sophisticated”. I would beg to differ with you on the actual definition of the word, because they are about as sophisticated as a pig in slop. But that’s the excuse that’s brought out.

There are two sets of rules in this country. One is for the politicians and the “sophisticated” liberals. The other is for you and me. Frankly, I think it’s time that Anthony Fauci disappear from our TV screens for good, and that someone in DC have the balls to write a law that says, “Congress shall not be excused from ANY law passed at any time.” Nuff said!

The Face of Ineffeciancy

When you think about it, there are actually a million different ways to rate lawmakers. There’s popularity of course, there’s name recognition (much different from popularity), there’s the myriad of PAC’s who rate lawmakers as to how they vote on that particular PAC’s issues, and then there’s probably the most important, but least heard from.

That would be Efficiency.

There are 240 Democrat Congressmen and women in the halls of Congress right now. And the University of Virginia and Vanderbilt University wanted to see who it was that was the most and the least efficient when it comes to actually doing their job; i.e. passing bills.

The most efficient Democrat from last year isn’t even in Washington, DC any longer. That would be New York Representative Nita Lowey from Westchester, who retired at the end of the term. During her tenure in Congress, Lowey offered up 29 major bills (not naming buildings or railroads after people), and had seven of them passed. John Katko, a Republican from Syracuse, New York was second. He had six of his bills signed into law.

And one of the least efficient, ranking 230 out of the 240 Democrats ranked? Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. AOC introduced 21 bills during her first term in office. None of them received backing from a number of her colleagues and the bills went nowhere. Thus, while probably one of the best known as far as name recognition or followers on TikTok, AOC trails the field when it comes to actually being able to do her job.

And her buds in the Wacko Five are actually faring better than she is.

Ilhan Omar introduced 33 bills. But none of them reached the Committee level or made it to the House floor either. She ranked just ahead of AOC because she tried more times. And Rashida Tlaib actually scored in the top half of Democrats at #92 with some bills making it to committee, and one actually becoming law.

And what does all of this tell us?

It tells us that the people that we hear from a lot in Washington, DC are not the people that are actually getting the job done. I mean, how many of you had ever heard of Nita Lowey, unless you’re from the New York City area? And how many of you have actually heard of John Katko unless you live in Syracuse? Probably none. You never see them on Fox News or CNN. There’s probably a very good reason for that. They are too busy working “for the people”.

What this list should tell us is that the people that are always looking for the cameras to espouse their views, people like Adam Schiff or Jerry Nadler, or Nancy Pelosi, aren’t the ones that actually do anything in Congress. Oh, they may be viewed as the “leaders”, but are they really leading if they aren’t actually writing bills? Isn’t that after all, why we put them there in the first place?

The federal government is filled with egomaniacs from both parties who’s only job is to get in front of as many TV cameras as they can find and become better known. After all, winning the “name game” is one way to advance your career. Such a sad way!

AOC Needs To Worry

So, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has a primary today. There are 13 people vying for her seat, with eight on the Republican side, and five on the Democrat side. And in the weekend leading up to the New York Democrat primary, a contest that determines whether or not she’s going to be able to keep her seat in the House of Representatives, does she do? She is all over Twitter on how she got a bunch of kids to prank Donald Trump’s campaign by signing up for reservations at his Tulsa rally on Saturday. My, she was proud of that one.

Maybe she should be worried about today’s vote instead of Trump’s attendance figures.

A recent poll showed that 75% of the likely voters out there know who Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is. You’d think that would be pretty damn good, right? Well, you’d be wrong. Like Hillary Clinton before her, AOC has a 22% approval rating. You’re not going to win many contests with an approval rating like that.

And the front-runner in her campaign for reelection is one Michelle Caruso-Cabrara, a former CNBC anchor that has decided that the New York-14th Congressional District, which by the way is solidly Democrat, needs someone a lot more conservative, much more moderate, and a whole lot smarter than a former bartender.

Fernando Cabrara (no relation to Michelle by the way) is a current NYC Councilman, who says that the district needs someone more moderate, not a “no show”. Apparently, AOC is flitting around the country and doesn’t have a whole lot of time to go and talk to her constituents.

Either Caruso-Cabrara or Cabrara are favored to finish ahead of AOC today. Either way, the 14th Congressional District of New York would be farther ahead. By the way, in case you missed it…Ilhan Omar, the representative from Minnesota’s 5th District is in even worse shape. She has a 9% approval rating from likely voters, and has five Democrat and three Republican challengers. The Minnesota primary was pushed back to August 11th due to the Coronavirus.

Rashida Tlaib, who represents Michigan’s 13th Congressional District is also going to have a primary challenge. She’s going to be going up against Detroit City Council President, Brenda Jones, who is bringing a lot of muscle with her. Michigan’s primary for the House is going to be a week earlier than Minnesota’s, taking place on August 4th.

It would seem that AOC and her gang have some problems in their reelection bid. And instead of playing childish pranks on Donald Trump, the “whackjob four” need to focus on keeping their jobs, IF that’s important to them!

Spoiled Little Brat

I’ve waited on writing this one. In fact, the news cycle on this may actually be over. I thought for a long while that I wasn’t going to give the WhackJob4 any further publicity when they go off the rails, but decided after Rashida Tlaib asked her numbed nutted followers to boycott liberal icon Bill Maher, that it was fun to wade into the melee.

Of course, you know the backstory. Tlaib, and Israel hating racist, Ilhan Omar, both freshmen members of the House, were trying to go to Israel. Well, that’s not exactly true. They were basically trying to go THRU Israel. They wanted to go to Palestine to meet with Palestinian leaders, and make a side trip to see Tlaib’s 90 year old grandmother. After a call from the White House, Israel decided not to allow the pair of troublemakers into their country.

Then Tlaib sent this “heartfelt” letter to the head of Israel’s security force claiming she wanted to see her grandmother “one more time”. So, he relented under the banner of “humanitarianism”. That’s when Tlaib went ballistic, claiming that she didn’t want to go to Israel after all because it was racist.

Let’s get one thing straight. Israel is a country. I don’t care WHO wants to get in, for what reason, they have a right to deny entry into their country for anybody, and for any reason. It doesn’t matter that Tlaib and Omar are members of the House of Representatives. Why would that have anything to do with it? If a country views you as a threat of some sort…and Israel views everyone that supported the “Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions” movement (BDS) against Israel as a threat…they have a right to keep you out.

Let me put this another way. Does the United States have a right to deny an ISIS terrorist admission into this country? Should we allow the Taliban to go roaming around the country? Now, we probably do because the liberal snowflake leftists out there want to make sure that our southern border is open to anyone that can make it there. But the answer is yes. The United States has a right, nay, a DUTY to make sure that the people that are coming here are not going to do our citizens harm.

Likewise, does any other country on earth have that right? Of course they do. What we have here is a couple of Israel-hating, leftist snowflake racists, who hate America, hate Israel, hate whites, hate men, hate anything that isn’t revolutionary and violent and they are crying because they are getting called on it. My fervent hope is the people of Minnesota, Michigan, Massachusetts, and New York get some brains between now and next November and vote these bitches out of office. Send them back to the districts from whence they came. Don’t employ them in any way, shape or form, and deny their governmental benefits.

“WhackJob 4” Are GOP’s Best Friends

The mainstream Democrats, especially in the House of Representatives are hoping that the “WhackJob 4”, the four freshmen Congresswomen that have become the new face of the Democrat party go away and quickly. Frankly, I hope they hang around and win re-election.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is already going to be facing a primary fight from a Jamaican immigrant who says AOC doesn’t have a clue about anything to do with money. Ilhan Omar, who is facing a new scandal of her own that basically says she cheated in getting access to America, gets about 100 or so people at her events, and has an 8% approval rating. Rashida Tlaib isn’t even considered a “woman of color” because technically Arab-Americans are considered white. And Ayanna Pressley is the newest member of this group…being a socialist from Massachusetts.

And while most of the Democrats hate the fact that these four girls are able to get top news coverage any time they want, and people that have served in Congress for years, even decades are virtual unknowns.

Frankly, I hope all four of them get re-elected. They ARE the new face of the Democrats, and they ARE the biggest pain in the side of mainstream Democrats who are actually in DC trying to get things done. Well, that may be somewhat of an overstatement. But they aren’t here to necessarily destroy America.

The longer these four whackjobs are in the news, the less chance Democrats have to keep control of the House of Representative, and the more chance Donald Trump has to tie whomever becomes the Democrat nominee to these four. And what happens when your presidential candidate is less known as the “standard-bearer of the party” than four twenty-something millennials? The only thing that happens is that you have a presidential candidate that can’t get the traction they need, can’t draw the crowds they need, can’t raise the funds they need in order to get elected. So far, that’s pretty much what’s happening to the Democrats. And when you compound that fact with someone like a Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, or Kamala Harris as the nominee, it’s very easy to come away with the feeling that the Democrats have gone off the deep end.

So, let’s keep the WhackJob 4 in DC. It’s going to save the nation…and reassure the re-election of Donald Trump.

How Far Do You Let It Go?

In the United States, we’ve got something called “Freedom of Speech”. It’s in the First Amendment to our Constitution along with four other topics such as Freedom of Religion (not FROM Religion!); Freedom to peaceably assemble; Freedom of the Press; and Freedom to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

So, we protect someone’s right to speak their mind. That goes even when they say something stupid or outlandish. They have a right to say stupid things. If you’ve read some of the comments left on this blog, you understand my point fully. But at what point do you say “Enough!” The fact that I disagree with you shouldn’t be interpreted as me trying to shut you down. You still have the right to say things, even though I disagree with you. Hence the very reason I allow people to say stupid and inane ramblings here.

But how far do you let it go? The Supreme Court has said in 1919 that you can’t yell “Fire!” in a crowded theater. Basically what they said was that you cannot say anything that might incite others to some type of lawless action, or to an action that would harm others, in the very near future (“clear and present danger”).  I believe that was Oliver Wendell Holmes who issued the opinion on that one…but don’t quote me on that.

So, when Ilhan Omar, the uber-leftist liberal snowflake Representative from Minnesota said of 9/11, describing the attack as “some people did some thing”. Well, that didn’t incite anyone to some type of lawless action or action that would harm others, but it does show her total ineptitude at tact. In fact, it drew the ire of both Republicans and most (not all) Democrats. Who would be so callous, so insensitive, so downright belligerent that they wouldn’t come out against such a damning comment? Well, how about Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for one? Surprised? No? Me neither. How about Rashida Tlaib? Surprised? No? Yeah…me neither.

Here we have three women that are so far off the map of reality about what America is, and what America stands for that they really are an embarrassment to their constituency. All three feel that they represent the “new generation” of younger, female voters in this country. Actually, they don’t. Actually, they don’t represent the mainstream of their party. They represent a sliver of America that is radical. I’m talking so left of center they make the Chicago 7 look like Pat Boone. I’m talking about radical as in Barack Obama joining the John Birch Society. I’m talking about…well, you get the idea.

Look, do these women have a right to spew this type of garbage? Of course they do. They have as much right to be idiots as anyone else in America. Does that mean that we need to listen to them? Does that mean that we don’t call them out and harass them, and refuse to serve them in restaurants, or we can’t chase them down airport hallways and scream nasty stuff at them like they like to do to Republicans? I say we give them a taste of their own medicine. I’m not saying we threaten them. I don’t go for that. But harass them? Absolutely. They need to be taught a lesson of what it’s like to be an American, and frankly they don’t have a clue.

So if you’re walking down the street in The Bronx and you see AOC, hound her. If you are on Woodward Avenue in Detroit and you see Rashida Tlaib, jump in her face and call her out. Is it respectful? Nope. It’s as respectful to them as they are to our country. They ought to be ashamed.

Carry on world…you’re dismissed!

The Voice Of A New Generation?

Nope…it’s not Coke or Pepsi. It’s Rashida Tlaib. The first Muslim woman elected to Congress. And depending on who you listen to, she could be either the voice of a new generation of congresspeople, or she could be some loud-mouth attorney from Detroit who makes a living out of stirring the muck.

Tlaib is the freshman Congresswoman from Detroit that yelled the infamous three words, “Impeach the Motherf***er” when she was sworn in back in January. Oh, some of the people in the extremely Democrat district she represents (which is also the third poorest district in the country by the by) loved her. But then she had to go and open her mouth again.

This time, it started changing the way people felt about her.

The latest incident was when Mark Meadows (R-NC) who happens to be the head of the Freedom Caucus, brought a long-time Trump employee, who happens to be black, to a Congressional hearing to tell the folks on the Hill that, No…Donald Trump is not a racist. Tlaib slammed Meadows for using what she called “a prop”, and called it a racist incident.

Well, first of all, there’s nothing racist about having a black person (or any person of color) disagree with someone about who’s a racist. That’s kind of the antithesis of racism. And it got the people back in Detroit wondering whether or not they’ve made a mistake. See, they are starting to take the bent that Tlaib is all talk and no action, “just like Donald Trump”. Tlaib will dispute that, of course, and hates the fact people are comparing her to the person she most detests.

And that leads us to the point in all of this. The same thing is happening with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. The same thing has happened to Elizabeth Warren. The same thing happened to Bernie Sanders (actually, his wife). It seems that when people actually get to know these socialists, they start liking them less and less. That’s very telling. Because what these people are doing is turning off the very people that thought they were different, because the people that voted for them, say they’re just a different flavor of the same ice cream.

I have this sneaky feeling that the Rashida Tlaib’s and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’ of the world will be short-lived in Congress. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. When the youth of today, that are actually voting for these people in the primaries, and then not showing up at the general election (because they are in heavily Democrat districts, and they don’t need to vote), realize what they are getting, they’re going to do what they do all of the time…change their tune and run the other way. That’s one of the defining characteristics of the Millennials. And it’s one of the very interesting things that will be fun to watch over the next few years. Will the Tlaib’s and the AOC’s of the left actually burn themselves out before they can cause any damage to our country? I’m betting on it.
