Another Failed Presidency at Hand
Sept. 7, 2021


This Sept. 11, a diminished president will preside over a diminished nation.

We are a country that could not keep a demagogue from the White House; could not stop an insurrectionist mob from storming the Capitol; could not win (or at least avoid losing) a war against a morally and technologically retrograde enemy; cannot conquer a disease for which there are safe and effective vaccines; and cannot bring itself to trust the government, the news media, the scientific establishment, the police or any other institution meant to operate for the common good.

A civilization “is born stoic and dies epicurean,” wrote historian Will Durant about the Babylonians. Our civilization was born optimistic and enlightened, at least by the standards of the day. Now it feels as if it’s fading into paranoid senility.

Joe Biden was supposed to be the man of the hour: a calming presence exuding decency, moderation and trust. As a candidate, he sold himself as a transitional president, a fatherly figure in the mold of George H.W. Bush who would restore dignity and prudence to the Oval Office after the mendacity and chaos that came before. It’s why I voted for him, as did so many others who once tipped red.

Instead, Biden has become the emblem of the hour: headstrong but shaky, ambitious but inept. He seems to be the last person in America to realize that, whatever the theoretical merits of the decision to withdraw our remaining troops from Afghanistan, the military and intelligence assumptions on which it was built were deeply flawed, the manner in which it was executed was a national humiliation and a moral betrayal, and the timing was catastrophic.

We find ourselves commemorating the first great jihadist victory over America, in 2001, right after delivering the second great jihadist victory over America, in 2021. The 9/11 memorial at the World Trade Center — water cascading into one void, and then trickling, out of sight, into another — has never felt more fitting.

Now Biden proposes to follow this up with his $3.5 trillion budget reconciliation bill, which The Times’s Jonathan Weisman describes as “the most significant expansion of the nation’s safety net since the war on poverty in the 1960s.”

When Lyndon Johnson launched his war on poverty, its associated legislation — from food stamps to Medicare — passed with bipartisan majorities in a lopsidedly Democratic Congress. Biden has similar ambitions without the same political means. This is not going to turn out well.

Last week, Joe Manchin, Democrat from West Virginia, published an essay in The Wall Street Journal in which he said, “I, for one, won’t support a $3.5 trillion bill, or anywhere near that level of additional spending, without greater clarity about why Congress chooses to ignore the serious effects inflation and debt have on existing government programs.”

Is the White House paying any more attention to Manchin’s message than it did to classified intelligence briefs over the summer warning of the prospect of a swift Taliban victory?

Who cares what the NY Times has to say? I don't understand why people even bother to pay any attention to this stupid lying blowhards anymore. They've been caught in numerous lies over the years, they will fucking lie, their "opinions" are purchased, and the people that still read this shit, are - I'm sorry - stupid at this point.

This reads like "Biden is making everyone question our totalitarian rush" instead of actually being critical of the policies. Typical NYT.

Anyone that couldn't see he was slipping into senility before the election is truly blind.

This is the real significance of that article.

The NY Times is a mouthpiece for the corporations running the government.

This shows that those corporations have lost faith in Biden to run the country on their behalf.

Their problem is not that he's evil. He proved that he is with the mandates. The problem is that he is incompetent at implementing their evil.

Here's another one from CNN:

Biden is not living up to his promises

(CNN)Joe Biden's presidential campaign was built on two pillars -- "I'm going to shut down the virus" and I am not Donald Trump. He is failing on both promises, as Covid rages and Biden's behavior more and more mirrors his predecessor's.

Biden's message to the country on Thursday, in which he outlined his new six-point strategy to handle the Covid-19 pandemic, was (another) tirade from a president who promised to unify the country in his inaugural address, but has devolved into an angry, lecturing partisan as his administration drowns in criticism from the public over Afghanistan, the economy, and a surge in coronavirus cases nationwide.

When you are the president, you have two primary ways to move people to your point of view: inspiration or coercion. It was said that Biden would employ the former, but he has resorted to the latter via a series of executive mandates and scolding speeches as he seeks higher vaccination rates. Gone is the soaring rhetoric of Biden's campaign, replaced with the kind of bile and disdain many Americans hated about "the former guy," as Biden would say.
It is doubtful this will work. In fact, it may backfire as many unvaccinated Americans recoil against being told what to do when it comes to their own health care, if you believe recent polling. Heck, the same day Biden was rolling out his plan directing the Labor Department to require all employers with more than 100 workers to require either the vaccine or regular testing, Vice President Kamala Harris was making videos supporting abortion rights using the my body, my choice arguments common on the left.
Which is it, guys?

Perhaps one of the Biden administration's biggest failures handling the pandemic has been these kinds of mixed messages. Harris early on was one of the worst offenders, stating in a debate that she would take the vaccine when health officials said it was ready, but not if President Donald Trump said so. I suspect this is a similar feeling some of the unvaccinated have at being told to take a vaccine by President Joe Biden. Health experts overwhelmingly agree the vaccine should be taken, but the reflexive partisan instinct to reject advice from politicians you hate isn't confined to one party, even as Democrats have memory-holed their own part in causing vaccine hesitancy.
After taking office, the mixed messages from Biden and Harris continued. In April, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Food and Drug Administration abruptly paused use of the Johnson & Johnson one-dose Covid-19 vaccine after extremely rare reports of blood clots. White House officials didn't immediately brief the President and the news seemed to have caught the administration off guard. The handling of the situation soon turned messy and officials worried it could erode the public's trust in the vaccine. (The pause was ultimately lifted, but the damage was already done.)
In August, CNN reported, "Top health officials in the Biden administration have added to the confusion with a series of contradictory messages on everything from masks to mandates." And more recently, on booster shots, the Financial Times reported that "Biden's Covid booster shot plan" was "mired in confusion amid regulatory hold-ups." Two weeks ago, two senior leaders in the FDA's vaccine review office announced they're stepping down this fall, further depleting an agency with an eroded morale due to the workload and that still doesn't have a permanent head eight months into Biden's term.

And during his speech Thursday, Biden said his new plan was necessary to "protect vaccinated workers from unvaccinated co-workers." If you believe in the efficacy of the vaccines, why do the vaccinated need protection? Yes, there have been some breakthrough infections, but they are extremely rare and mild. If you were already skeptical of whether you needed a vaccine, there's a strong chance you would interpret Biden's words and actions as a total lack of confidence that these shots work.
Time and again, when given a chance to inspire and unify, Biden and his team have confused and hectored the very unvaccinated Americans he needs to reach the most. It was just in July that his CDC director, Rochelle Walensky, and White House press secretary Jen Psaki said that there would be no national vaccination mandates. Now we have mandates and an angry president who has given up on his supposed legendary empathy in favor of the kind of dictatorial style that Democrats once hammered Trump for.

Oh, he's not incompetent - he's not believable or likeable. THAT'S the problem.

The job of the "president" is to make credible excuses for whatever policy they are ordered to implement. So if Al Gore were "president" in 2001 his job would have been to convince the country to go to war with Iraq, probably, for humanitarian reasons instead of a "weapons of mass destruction program".

Biden is making people distrust the establishment. Which is great. I liked Trump because he both did SOME things I liked, and he undermined the trust in our criminal syndicate establishment. I like Biden because he's obviously a meat puppet and he's undermining the trust in our criminal syndicate establishment.

I'd prefer Trump over Biden, but I'll deal with Biden. He's FAAAAR from perfect, which is ironically a good thing. We're lucky to have an complete fucking asshole as our president who wasn't elected who is destroying the credibility of our establishment. We don't need to replace our presidents, we have to replace our establishment.

Raising corporates taxes is just Biden doing the bidding of his Chinese handlers. Higher taxes here means more companies move off shore. Notice how Biden removed Trump's tariffs and has completely taken tariffs off the table.

Uhhhhhhhhhhhh, Biden hasn't removed Trump's tariffs, and the house bill increases the amount corporations have to pay on foreign earnings as well as a higher tax bracket. Corporations HATE this.

Or:
Biden's phase is nearing its end. Biden was set up to be the scapegoat for the unpopular policies they want implemented, and to set up Harris as VP. Next phase, Harris as President.

When Lyndon Johnson launched his war on poverty, its associated legislation
The impulses that led to The Great Society social engineering schemes were the same that propelled us into the Vietnam war--it was even given a name: Guns and Butter. The federal government can solve every problem of human existence by funding and staffing a federal agency--no local solutions allowed. The US with its mighty military can beat any enemy in the world, until it couldn't even beat an enemy from the stone age after deploying half a million soldiers and killing 10% of them. Ten years later, both were a disaster with loss in Vietnam and in 1975 the 3rd year of the worst recession in the Postwar era with double digit inflation and unemployment.

That won't make it in the final bill presented to Dementia Joe's desk. Globalist Corpo Dems...esp in the Senate...are already making PUBLIC noises about killing it.

It's even made the globalist corporate controlled press.
