Grading Biden's First Year

[ Posted Thursday, January 20th, 2022 – 16:53 UTC ]

One year ago today, Joe Biden was sworn in as president of the United States. His Inauguration was notable for a few reasons, first and foremost the fact that it happened only two weeks after the U.S. Capitol had been besieged and overrun by insurrectionists attempting to prevent Biden from ever taking office. So the entire Capitol complex was heavily locked down and defended for what is normally a positive and upbeat public ceremony. The other two notable reasons that stick in my mind were: Amanda Gorman absolutely stealing the show with her poem "The Hill We Climb," and Bernie Sanders providing the best photo op by sitting on a socially-distanced chair wearing adorable homemade mittens.

Since it is precisely one year later, the traditional thing to do is to review Biden's performance in office over the past year. There are many ways a new president could be rated, of course, so I just settled on one to give my overall impressions and conclusions.

Some media outlets employ a letter grade for the president, and that's a pretty good way to sum things up, I think. If I was issuing a grade for Joe Biden's first year as president, it would probably be an overall solid B. Good job, but still room for improvement, in other words. Allow me to explain both the positive and the negative aspects of that grade.

I grade him that high because of the things he did manage to accomplish. First and foremost, Joe Biden is a sane, rational human being. He deals in honest facts instead of lunatic delusions and fantastical lies, and he (at times) is capable of admitting when he made a mistake. All of that was an enormous change from the previous four years. Biden didn't once go on insane rants or tweetstorms or personal vendettas against those he perceived to be his enemies. Again, that's a big difference right there. And that's precisely why 81 million Americans turned out to vote for him.

Second, Biden laid out one of the most ambitious legislative agendas ever seen for a new president, and on the economic and pandemic fronts he got roughly two-thirds of what he wanted done. You can quibble about the fraction, but he did get two legs of his three-legged economic agenda through a Congress where his Democrats have razor-thin majorities. By doing so, he passed landmark and historic legislation both to fight the pandemic and to rebuild America's infrastructure -- the latter being something oft-promised by the former president, but never delivered upon. The impacts of both of these laws have only begun to be felt and indeed will bear fruit for years to come.

Third, Biden made significant progress (most notably on the economy) that hasn't fully paid off for him politically quite yet; achievements both historic and impressive. He went from having two million Americans vaccinated to having 210 million fully vaccinated. The vaccine rollout was unprecedented in size and speed and although it may have had some minor hiccups, generally it ran smoothly and competently. Because the vaccine program was so successful, in fact, both the Delta and Omicron waves proved to be much less lethal than the earlier waves. If Biden hadn't gotten a huge majority of adults vaccinated by the end of the summer, this fall and winter would have been a lot worse, to put this another way. Hundreds of thousands of lives were saved. This is something Biden rarely gets credit for, both from the media and from the public. Sure, Republicans have decided that refusing the vaccine is some sort of ideological statement, but the worst of Delta and Omicron has hit them hard -- because the unvaccinated are the ones much more likely to get seriously ill or die.

The economy has been following the pandemic's waves, something economists seem to be incapable of taking into their calculations. When a big wave of illness hits from a new mutated variant, the economy is also going to take a hit. But overall things have been bouncing back at a breathtaking rate. Joe Biden saw more jobs created during his first year -- over 6 million -- than any other president in American history. The unemployment rate dropped to 3.9 percent, which absolutely nobody predicted, one year ago. The economy came back so quickly and strongly that supply-chain issues developed (as they had, much more disastrously, in the earliest days of the pandemic -- does anyone else remember getting up at dawn to stand in line to see if the store had some toilet paper that day?). It also brought inflation. But on the whole, the economy is doing far, far better than anyone was predicting when Biden took office.

Which brings up the other side of the coin. I grade Biden as low as a B because there was definitely room for improvement. I even considered going as low as a B-minus, truth be told.

Biden's biggest weakness is rather ironic, because it runs counter to how Biden sold himself. Even with all his decades of experience in the Senate and in Barack Obama's White House, Biden's biggest failing was corralling his own caucus in the Senate. His heart was obviously in the right place, but he wasted a huge amount of time seeking consensus when there was none to be had. Biden has utterly failed to rein in two rogue senators from his own party, and it has absolutely kneecapped his agenda and will likely continue to do so for the next year as well.

But while Senators Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema obviously deserve the lion's share of this blame, Biden himself is not blameless either. Granted, he can't afford to lose a single vote. Granted, the last Democratic president who managed to pass sweeping foundational change through Congress had a much bigger Senate majority to work with (L.B.J.'s 67 senators). But even so, Manchin and Sinema have put the country through at least six or seven months of spinning our wheels. Lots of talk, lots of posturing -- but in the end, zero action beyond the bipartisan infrastructure bill. The tortured and endless negotiations on Biden's Build Back Better plan just ate up half a year that could have been spent far more productively. If Biden had realized this early on -- say, during the August break -- then he could have shifted gears and tried to get a few other important issues dealt with. Maybe he could have succeeded, maybe he couldn't have, but he would have at least been seen as driving the debate and the agenda. Instead, we all had to sit through endless rounds of: "this is what 'President' Manchin thinks this week...."

As with any successful presidential candidate, Biden promised a whole lot of things would be his "top priority" or "dealt with starting on Day One." All new presidents fail to make good on at least some of these promises, but Biden's loss of a half a year meant the majority of what he promised (other than the low-hanging fruit of reversing all of Donald Trump's executive actions) really never was the center of attention at all. He does seem to have realized this of late, so we'll have to see what course he now charts.

One big area that needs a whole lot of improvement is communication. Again, Biden seems to have realized this over the holidays and has spent all of this month trying to get better, with some notable successes. But he's got to keep this pace up, and he still has yet to learn the new media normal out there.

Biden's approach to communicating with the media and the public is, for want of a better term, very "20th century." Here's a good example of what I mean by this: quick, quote to me one tweet Biden sent in the past year. You probably can't (I couldn't think of a single one myself, so don't feel bad). He just has no social media presence at all, at least not to speak of (as in: "people are talking about it"). He's even stingy with the traditional media. Yesterday he gave a marathon 2-hour press conference, but it was only the second one he had given on American soil (he had given a handful of others on foreign trips) in an entire year. Twice in one year is far too few, Joe.

Even outside of formal press conferences (which presidents sometimes just refuse to do, as Trump did in his later years in office), Biden hasn't sat down for major interviews with television network journalists or pretty much any other journalists. How does he expect to get his message out if he's not out there telling people what he thinks? It's not going to happen spontaneously, and it's not going to happen by sending a few cabinet members out to the Sunday morning political shows (which, to his credit, Biden has regularly been doing). As he showed yesterday, he is fully capable of answering questions from the press, so he should really start doing it a lot more.

Which brings up a related failing -- and one that really shouldn't have happened. Biden fell down on the job of promoting the two enormous pieces of legislation he did manage to get signed into law. And he really has no excuse on this one. He'll even admit it -- when he was vice president, he saw how President Obama dropped the ball on selling Obamacare to the public to counter the negativity from the other side of the aisle. He keeps saying he learned his lesson from this, but how much cheerleading has he done for his pandemic relief bill? Do you even remember its name? [It's the "American Rescue Plan Act," in case you forgot -- again, I had to look it up just to be sure I had gotten it right (and I hadn't, I had forgotten the word "Plan").]

Biden has shown a little more interest in touting the infrastructure plan, but he really should be shouting to the skies what both of these historic achievements have made possible. And, just as he did yesterday, Biden should take special care to point out how many Republicans voted against these plans. It is an election year, after all.

You may personally have a different letter grade for Biden at his one-year mark. Keep in mind, though, when measuring up how much he's accomplished, that this is only one-fourth of his presidency. His two-legged economic stool still needs a third leg to stand on its own, he has much left to do on all sorts of other issues, but he also has three years remaining to get any of them done.

Biden has had some enormous successes (jobs added, the stunningly-fast economic recovery) and some enormous failures (the Afghanistan withdrawal, Build Back Better). He seems to have started 2022 re-energized and aware of the areas he still has to work on. He promised he's going to get out of the Washington bubble more (for speeches and campaign rallies), but he also needs to learn how to coexist with the denizens of the Beltway better (in particular, the media). He's got to learn what a powerful thing social media can be for directly getting your message to the people, too. And from now on he should just sit down with Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema before making a big legislative push, to see what their twisted sense of their jobs will allow them to agree to. Because, absent that, we've all seen how much time those two can waste.

Joe Biden has room for improvement, but all around his performance has been so much better than the nightmare we all lived through for the four previous years that it's a comfort just to have a sane and non-narcissistic individual in the Oval Office once again. He has achieved much more than the press or the public have given him credit for, and if the pandemic quickly fades back to manageable levels (something which is already fast underway in the areas first hit by Omicron) and if inflation and the supply chain calm down enough for the economic recovery to become much more of a positive for Biden, then 2022 could be a lot better year than some may now think.

    Nice writeup, CW. Thank you.

    His Inauguration was notable for a few reasons, first and foremost the fact that it happened only two weeks after the U.S. Capitol had been besieged and overrun by insurrectionists attempting to prevent Biden from ever taking office.

    Would anyone happen to have any eyewitness testimony that Donald Trump was part of the conspiracy to prevent Biden from ever taking office? Yes, sir:

    Committee Correspondence to Dear Ms. Trump
    *

    As January 6th approached, President Trump attempted on multiple occasions to persuade Vice President Pence to participate in his plan. One of the President's discussions with the Vice President occurred by phone on the morning of January 6th. You were present in the Oval Office and observed at least one side of that telephone conversation.

    Interesting correspondence regarding persons in the room where it happened. The correspondence requests Ms. Trump weigh in on details obtained through other witnesses, and they share testimonial evidence from retired Army Gen. Keith Kellogg, the former national security adviser to then-Vice President Mike Pence.

    In his testimony, Kellogg confirmed that Trump was pressuring Mike Pence to overturn the election's results despite Pence's constitutional mandate and ceremonial role to certify Biden's win at the Capitol later that day. According to Kellogg, Trump made remarks to Pence along the lines of: "Mike, it's not right. You can do this. I'm counting on you to do it. If you don't do it, I picked the wrong man four years ago. You're going to wimp out."

    Kellogg also told the January 6 committee that at the end of the call the morning of January 6th, Ivanka turned to him and said, "Mike Pence is a good man."

    The January 6 committee also notes they have evidence in the form of documents showing that Trump's White House counsel may have concluded that had Pence followed through with the former president's plans, it would be a violation of the Constitution and/or would be illegal.

    The cat is now out of the designer handbag.

    I've been preaching patience for a while now. Historical trends be damned I think the Dems are in waaay better shape than the MSM is portraying. Consider,

Who knows where inflation will be in 6 months? I promise that if it calms down a predicted no one will remember December's 7% year-on-year.

    SECOND, Biden and the Dems are sane. We don't wake up to insanity every morning. And Joe is doing things for all Americans rather than writing himself a big tax cut like Trump did. Repugs are voting against all this popular legislation and offer MTG, Gaetz, Gomer, Gosar and "Trump won in 2020!"

    Next, the Select Committee is starting to go public with the investigation which will keep Trump/Sedition/Republicans Helped front and center for the rest of 2022 at least. And criminal charges against his Repug enablers are looking likely. Does anyone really think that Merrick Garland isn't going to stick a telephone pole up the GOP's collective you-know-what?

    Granted, Democrats are like the Palestinians: they never miss an opportunity to miss an opportunity. But the Progressive wing is ascendant and their policies are popular, so they may not screw it up this time.

    And he's only one quarter of the way into his first term. Too soon to call it. And remember, hand-wringing is in our Liberal DNA, amirite?

    Be patient with Merrick Garland. Remember the complexity and political danger of prosecuting this unprecedented attack on our democracy. It's undeniably more important that he gets it right rather than getting it done quickly.

    Be patient with inflation and supply chain issues and Covid. A Nurse researcher neighbor told me most unvaxxed people have already gotten at least one variant at this point. Add in 190 million fully vaxxed and we are approaching herd immunity. There won't be another variant and accompanying surge because the won't be enough vulnerable Muricans to catch and spread it. Which ain't hoing to be nothing but good news for the Party in power.

    I can easily imagine an October where inflation has subsided off the radar, the economy and real wages growing, at least some of the rest of the Dem agenda has finally passed and there are no Afghanistan-level blunders to speak of. Maybe Joe and the Europeans even keep Putin out of Ukraine.
    Meanwhile Trump and all kinds of Repugs are mired in Insurrectiongate. They've no agenda and nothing to offer Murica but Trumpworld.

    A Scandal For Every Month: The Biggest Botches, Failures, And Mess-Ups Of Joe Biden’s First 12 Months In Office

    It’s not hard to remember a Biden disaster for every month of his first year at the stern … or in the basement, as the case may be.

    Joe Biden has been in the Oval Office (or that weird set in the Eisenhower building’s South Court auditorium with the greenscreen windows) for a year now, and he’s already managed to make his short presidency known for a long line-up of scandals, botches, and slip-ups.

    It’s too hard to narrow the list down to one top failure, although his disgracefully handled Afghanistan withdrawal may be the most sobering and inflation may be the one that played the biggest role in Biden’s tanking approval ratings. Even though Biden’s mess-ups tally up to far more than 12, it’s not hard to remember a Biden-enabled disaster for every month of the septuagenarian’s first year at the stern … or in the basement.

    January: Biden’s Radical First Week
    On his first day in office, President Joe Biden signed a list of radically left-wing executive orders, including an order requiring that schools must ignore the biological differences between male and female students from the athletic field to the bathroom if they wish to continue receiving federal funding. In Biden’s first week, Press Secretary Jen Psaki also signaled the administration’s plans to reinstate federal funding for abortions around the world with the reversal of the Mexico City policy, and the new president canceled the Keystone XL pipeline.

    As Tristan Justice reported at the time, “Biden’s first 48 hours in office have launched the new administration with 17 executive orders, more than were issued in the first month of their presidencies by Donald Trump, Barack Obama, George W. Bush, and Bill Clinton combined.”

    February: Biden’s CDC Worked to Keep Schools Closed
    In February, Biden’s Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced strict reopening guidelines that would keep many schools around the country shut down. “Only K-12 schools in cities and areas with low or moderate virus transmission can fully reopen for in-person learning, as long as physical distancing and mask-wearing is enforced,” Jordan Boyd reported on Feb. 12. “Any transmission rate beyond what is designated as moderate requires hybrid learning or ‘reduced attendance,’ limiting which children are allowed in the classroom at the same time.”

    On the same day, CDC Director Rochelle Walensky admitted that far-left teachers unions that have worked to keep students out of school buildings over the course of the Covid pandemic had influence when the CDC created its school reopening guidelines.

But further revelations about Hunter’s exploits emerged in May of last year, adding to the pile of unsavory behavior that may implicate the president himself.

    New emails from Hunter Biden’s suspected laptop published on May 26 by the Post show that Joe Biden “met with Ukrainian, Russian and Kazakhstani business associates of his son’s at a dinner in Washington, DC, while he was vice president” in April 2015.

    Hunter Biden rears his ugly cocaine fueled head again..

    Further proof of Joe Biden's collusion with Anti-America forces of the world..

    Ooops.. SUBMIT'ed too soon..

    “Dear Hunter, thank you for inviting me to DC and giving an opportunity to meet your father and spent some time together,” wrote executive Vadym Pozharskyi of the Ukrainian energy company Burisma, where Hunter sat on the board.

    Other emails published by The Daily Mail in May revealed that Hunter Biden bragged he “smoked crack with [former D.C. Mayor] Marion Barry” when he was a student at Georgetown University.

    Perhaps that explains Biden's burst of energy of late..

    Crack cocaine...

    And here is where Biden starts to flame out and plummet to record low approval numbers, even worse than President Trump's...

    June: Record-Setting Crisis at the Southern Border
    Biden’s crisis at the Southern border has been setting records all year, but it was in June that apprehensions surged past 1 million for fiscal year 2021 and border crossings were at the highest levels since 2006. In May alone, “170,000 people were captured, marking a 20-year high,” Gabe Kaminsky reported at the time. June also saw the border state of Texas declare an emergency over Biden’s border crisis, which the president helped cause by reversing Trump-era stances like the “Remain in Mexico” policy.

    As the crisis raged, Biden’s border czar Vice President Kamala Harris couldn’t be bothered to visit the actual U.S.-Mexico line, snapping “I haven’t been to Europe” when reporters pressed her on the topic. She finally caved and scheduled a trip, but only after former President Donald Trump announced his plans to visit.

    The open southern border is especially ironic when one considers how restrictive Biden wants to be with Americans vis a vis pandemic issues...

    Yet Biden opens the southern border and lets anyone in without even so much as an identity or health check..

    Biden simply HAS to import as many illegals as he can because he NEEDS their votes come November...

    But the failure of the OTHER Democrat Wet Dream, the Elections Cheating Act has put a huge dent in THAT plan... :D

    Thank the gods for patriotic Americans like Manchin and Sinema... It STILL amazes me that they are Democrats..

    July: Bragging about Working with Big Tech to Silence Dissent
    In July, the Biden administration bragged about colluding with Big Tech to shut down perspectives with which the regime disagreed. In a press briefing on July 15, Psaki touted the administration’s policy of “flagging problematic posts for Facebook that spread disinformation.” A few days later, Psaki admitted there was nothing “off the table” in the effort to smear dissent as “misinformation” and have it removed from social media.

    In July, Biden's collusion with Big Tech over squelching and censoring the facts that are disfavorable to Democrats..

    Which, let's face reality.. Mostly ALL the facts available are disfavorable to Democrats...

    Big Tech helped Biden cheat in the 2020 elections by putting up upwards of a BILLION dollars to buy entire election boards in strategic locations and man them solely with Democrat operatives...

    These are well documented FACTS...

    Biden and the Democrats are SOOO desperate to do it again in 2024, but patriotic Americans are ready for that and will definitely prevent a repeat of 2020 in 2022...

    And, as usual, the pathetic Weigantian(™) Troll, Victoria starts her gross and pathetic attacks on my family..

    Three things:

    (1) You will always be the Weigantia(™michale) Troll. You accidentally were kind enough to trademark and proprietary name your demonstrable trolliness, and I picked up on it so now you're stuck with it, Weigantia Michale Troll. It obviously doesn't work on me (or anyone else) since I used it on you first.

    (2) When attempting to exude a modicum of perspicacity, one should never use the same word twice in a sentence; it spoils the effect you were so desperately trying and flailing to achieve. Work on it.

    (3) If you don't wish to discuss your wife, you might want to stop bringing her up over and over ad nauseam:

    Bitch be PWN'ed!!! :D

    ~ Weigantia Michale Troll [cannot stop itself]

    But I do wish to thank you for the tacit admission; it was a nice touch on your part, which I admit without hesitation I was not altogether expecting.

    Once again, Victoria Troll realizes that her personal attacks on me do absolutely NOTHING.. So she has to attack my family...

    Three things:

    (1) Nope... it doesn't work on me because I used it on you first, Michale Troll.

    (2) As for the redundant "attacks," they are all your handiwork... always have been and always shall remain ever thus.

    (3) I am honored at your second tacit admission and must admit freely that you've been more than liberal in your multiple asseverations. Dare I dream for a third?

    One would think there would be a Weigantia(™) rule against dragging a Weigantian's family into their disgusting and perverted personal attacks..

    Three things:

    (1) Snowflake whining desperately for a "rule." Weigantia Michale Troll can sure dish it out but whimpers like a manky prat if anyone responds accordingly.

    (2) I agree you and your attacks are "perverted," but the Weigantia Michale Troll cannot stop itself.

    (3) A third... THIRD... tacit admission. I am speechless *shakes head*

    But I guess the Weigantian(™) Troll, Victoria is simply espousing on how desperate she is..

    Three things:

    (1) You are the Weigantia Michale Troll; this attempt of yours to use this device I used on you first works on no one else in Weigantia because you properly trademarked it for yourself and no one else.

    (2) The "espousing" is all yours.

    (3) "Desperate"... said the snowflake prattling on and on whining for a "rule."

    Victoria Troll knows she is no match for me intellectually... So she has to drag my family thru the mud....

    Three things:

    (1) Alrighty, Michale Troll, you are now officially a copy cat; still doesn't work on anyone else because you own it, trademarked it, and it's all yours.

    (2) To describe the Weigantia Michale Troll, you used the terms "me" and "intellectually" in the same sentence. *points and laughs*

    (3) If you've got an issue with somebody dragging your "family thru the mud" into your festering swamp in Shithole, check your mirror for the illiterate poon looking back at you who couldn't stop itself.

    What a sad piece of excrement Victoria Troll is...

    Three things:

    (1) I am never sad.

    (2) Your projection of your trollshit mountain is again duly noted.

    (3) Doesn't work on me because I used it on you first, Weigantia Michale Troll.

    We should all pity her...

    This also doesn't work on me because you are again using my terms that I use on you... it's how you let someone know what hits the target, and I am flattered by the attempts, I really am, but when I said "get some new material," that didn't mean you should steal my own phrases, you pilfering poon.

    Trump's rants, tweetstorms and vendettas were against people that the people Trump was conning and manipulating perceived to be their enemies.

    OK now, where were with Biden's dismal 2021...

    Oh yes.. August.. Biden's "extraordinarily successful" Afghanistan withdrawal that was a COMPLETE and total cluster frak that cost the lives of 13 brave Americans that Biden's incompetence was directly responsible for their deaths...

    August saw the largest-scale disaster on Biden’s watch so far, when the administration’s disorganized withdrawal from Afghanistan left 13 American service members dead and thousands of American citizens and allies stranded under Taliban control.

    From the administration’s decision to vacate Bagram Air Base before evacuating Americans from the country, to leaving weapons and equipment to fall into the hands of the Taliban, to Biden taking an out-of-touch, hollow victory lap after the service members’ deaths and while Americans remained stranded, to the administration’s ongoing decision to ignore the allies still behind enemy lines, every action taken by the Biden team was a disaster. In the same month, the administration carried out a drone strike targeted at ISIS operatives that actually killed at least 10 civilians, seven of whom were children.

    Biden's TOTALLY moronic decision to abandon our ONLY strategic asset in the TOP is what DIRECTLY led to 13 brave American troops being killed..

    In addition to giving terrorist groups over EIGHTY BILLION DOLLARS in top of the line military hardware, including Apache gunships, to releasing thousands of ISIS terrorists, Biden could not have caused more harm to the US and US allies if he had tried..

    This total cluster frak of a military action alone is enough to have Biden impeached..

    There was a reason why no American died in Afghanistan in the last 18 months of the President Trump administration..

    Because President Trump is a LEADER and knows how to lead men and support America...

    Biden wounded America deeply... Everyone who voted for Biden has the blood of American troops on their hands..

    “It was horrible to see. To see people treated like they did? Horses running them over? People being strapped? It’s outrageous,” Biden claimed, even though the photographer who took the viral photo insisted he’d “never seen them whip anyone.”

    Let's move on with assessing Biden's complete and utter incompetence..

    October: Biden’s Ed Secretary, DOJ Collude with NSBA to Smear Parents as Domestic Terrorists
    On Sept. 29, the National School Boards Association sent a letter to the White House asking Biden to use the FBI and other federal law enforcement to target parents using terrorism laws. A few dayes later on Oct. 4, in response to the letter, Attorney General Merrick Garland directed the FBI and federal attorneys to investigate and address “a disturbing spike in harassment, intimidation, and threats of violence against school administrators, board members, teachers, and staff.”

    As it turns out, however, Biden’s own Education Secretary Miguel Cardona appears to have secretly requested the letter from NSBA, presumably to use as a pretense for the administration’s push to target parents unhappy with public schools’ closures, mask mandates, and extremist LGBT and critical race theory curricula.

    This bumbling attempt to attack patriotic American parents DIRECTLY led to Glenn Youngkin winning the Virginia election...

    What *IS* it about Democrats that they are completely and totally incompetent???

    November: That Tyrannical, Unconstitutional OSHA Vax Mandate
    After issuing a September press release threatening a vaccine mandate for private businesses with 100 or more employees, Biden’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) released an emergency temporary standard on Nov. 4 that would require businesses to comply by Jan. 4 or incur fines of up to $14,000 per violation.

    The Supreme Court struck this down in January, of course, and the Biden administration knew it was flagrantly unconstitutional all along — but exploiting the delays of the judicial system allowed the administration to bully many corporations into compliance anyway. Never mind the fact that the Biden administration had promised during the campaign that it wouldn’t mandate the Covid vaccine.

    Oh yes... The SCOTUS... The 6-3 Conservative SCOTUS that is a testament to the utter STOOPIDITY and short sightedness of the Democrat Party...

    December: Supply Chain and Inflation Nightmare
    December saw the climax (so far) of Biden’s joint inflation and supply chain crisis, dually caused by the administration’s radical spending and Democrats’ Covid lockdowns. As Americans faced shortages and shipping delays during their Christmas shopping, the Department of Labor released its November figures revealing 6.8 percent year-to-year inflation, or “the largest 12-month increase since the period ending June 1982.”

    December’s inflation numbers were even higher, clocking in at 7 percent.

    Biden's Administration kept swearing up and down that inflation wasn't a thing and, even if it was, it was transitory..

    Once again, Biden and the Democrats were proven totally and 1000% WRONG..

Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona — to former Alabama Gov. George Wallace and Confederate leader Jefferson Davis.

    “Do you want to be the side of Dr. King or George Wallace? Do you want to be the side of John Lewis or Bull Connor? Do you want to be the side of Abraham Lincoln or Jefferson Davis?” Biden said. Comparing his critics to notorious segregationists isn’t a good way to start year two of the Biden era.

    Biden's Election Integrity Reply Puts WH in Cleanup Mode

    Less than 24 hours after President Biden told RealClearPolitics – and a national TV audience – he was not prepared to say that the coming midterm elections would be legitimate, White House press secretary Jen Psaki was saying the exact opposite Thursday during television interviews, on Twitter and twice to reporters in the briefing room.

    The clarification may have come too late. Before Psaki could do damage control, both Vice President Kamala Harris and House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn, the Democrat perhaps most responsible for making Biden president, seemed to amplify a message that the White House would have to disavow hours later.

    It all started with a routine press conference question Wednesday but ended with an answer that crowded out some of the positive headlines the administration had hoped to earn on the one-year anniversary of Biden’s inauguration.

    If his preferred election reforms didn’t become law, asked Allison Harris of NewsNation, would the midterms be fair and legitimate? Biden hedged.

    “Well, it all depends on whether or not we’re able to make the case to the American people that some of this is being set up to try to alter the outcome of the election,” the president said, referring to Republican-controlled state legislatures engaged in their own changes to voting laws and implying that the legitimacy of those elections remains in question.

    When Biden later called on RCP, the president was asked to clarify that response. Given the state-level efforts his administration believes restrict voter access, did he believe that the next election “would in any way be illegitimate”? He didn’t hesitate this time. “Oh, yeah,” Biden replied, “I think it easily could be illegitimate.”

    And then the president turned his attention to the last electoral contest. “Imagine if, in fact, Trump had succeeded in convincing Pence to not count the votes,” he said.

    RCP interrupted to clarify: “In regard to 2022, sir – the midterm elections.”

    “Oh, 2022,” he replied, before returning to finish his last thought about 2020. “I mean, imagine if those attempts to say that the count was not legit. ‘You have to recount it and we’re not going to count — we’re going to discard the following votes.’

    “I’m not going to say it’s going to be legit, The increase and the prospect of being illegitimate is in direct proportion to us not being able to get these reforms passed,” he continued, tying passage of his preferred federal voting rights legislation to the legitimacy of the midterms.

    At the White House press briefing Thursday, Peter Alexander of NBC News quoted Biden’s words from the day before. “When a reporter followed up, the president said to him, ‘I'm not saying it's going to be legit. The increase in the prospect of being illegitimate is in direct proportion to us not being able to get these reforms passed,’” he said before asking again: “So yes or no, does the president believe, if all remains as it is right now, that the elections this fall will be legitimate?”

    Psaki answered, “Yes,” insisting again that Biden was talking about the 2020 election, not the one in 2022.

    Alexander asked again, “If there are no changes in terms of voting rights legislation going forward, the president does still feel confident that the elections this fall will be legitimate?”

    Psaki said “yes” a second time.

    OK... OK... So if the 2022 election is going to be legitimate as Biden (NOW) claims, then we don't have to worry about passing this Election Cheat Act....

    Dobbs Case Adds New Hope to 2022 March for Life

    Hope has been an essential part of the March for Life since the first march in 1974, but rarely has that hope seemed so palpable or concrete as it does now. That’s because this year, the Supreme Court will issue a ruling in the landmark abortion case Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization, which could right a historic injustice and transform the way we protect life in America.

    The case involves a 2018 Mississippi law that bans most abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy. The Supreme Court is set to determine whether that 15-week limit or any pre-viability limits on abortion are constitutional – a decision with profound ramifications for the lives of all Americans, particularly those yet to be born.

    The justices will determine another matter of crucial importance to the future of our constitutional democracy: Is abortion policy best decided in a courtroom by a panel of unelected judges (such as the all-male Supreme Court that usurped the people’s voice in Roe v. Wade) or by elected officials in state legislatures and Congress, who are accountable to their constituents?

    If Mississippi’s law survives its Supreme Court test, authority to determine abortion policy would return to the states. The tragedy of abortion would not disappear overnight. Rather, the battle for life would shift to state legislatures, where the resulting laws will finally mirror the wishes of the people – an opportunity for pro-life leaders to build consensus. “It will be messy and it will be hard, and may play out differently from state to state,” tweeted Mississippi Attorney General Lynn Fitch. “But that is the role the Constitution gave to the people, and the court needs to return to us now.”
    https://www.realclearpolitics.com/articles/2022/01/21/dobbs_case_adds_new_hope_to_2022_march_for_life.html

    There Mississippi’s law is the norm rather than the exception, with 47 out of 50 European countries placing limits on elective abortions at 15 weeks or earlier – eight don’t allow elective abortion at all. During oral arguments for Dobbs in December, Chief Justice Roberts noted the shocking fact that America’s unlimited abortion-on-demand policy has more in common with China and North Korea than what we think of as progressive Europe.

    Rather than having a sound foundation in the Constitution, Roe relied on flawed and now outdated science that contended an unborn child could not be viable outside the womb prior to 24 weeks of pregnancy. Advances in medical care allow premature babies born at just week 22, and sometimes earlier, to survive and thrive. Groundbreaking fetal surgeries have made it possible to treat conditions like spina bifida or twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome right in the womb and save babies before they are even born – making it impossible to ignore that there are at least two patients in every pregnancy.

    Exactly..

    The idea that Democrats espoused, MY BODY MY CHOICE is flawed and factually inaccurate...

    A week later, at the cherry festival in Traverse City, Michigan, Biden leaned into Sen. Gary Peters, who's in charge of Democratic Senate campaigns, with the same promise. He's always cared most about Senate races, Biden told the Michigan Democrat,?and he wanted to have a meeting, an hour at least, to talk about helping his party hold the chamber in 2022.

    Maloney's staff eagerly followed up. So did Peters'. Then they followed up again. And again. Seven months later, there are still no meetings on the books.?

Biden is coming across as old and absent, they say. Real and perceived fumbles play into deep fears that he's not up to the job and that Democrats are incompetent. Few Americans can say what was in the massive bills he's signed, though many have heard about Democratic infighting and failure in what he hasn't signed.
    "What is the plan to fix that?" asked one operative in touch with the White House. "They can't tell us what they're talking about next week."?
    ?Though most Democrats in power believe there's still ample time for a turnaround, several top operatives are already talking triage. They're fearful of discussing all of this publicly because they don't want to create more problems. But privately, they are petrified that a Republican majority would end Biden's agenda and swamp them with endless investigations and subpoenas, promise impeachment and potentially endanger fair certification of the next presidential election. All this comes as former President Donald Trump has begun assembling a stricter political operation from Mar-a-Lago, aiming to use a strong presence and win record in 2022 to potentially bulldoze his way through 2024.

    I decided to use your playbook for a day and take everything out of context and generally be insulting. Admittedly I cranked it up to 10 for fun. I can keep doing that, at least till I get bored. I'm happy to bring back civilized decorum but it starts with you policing your own behavior...

    But you crossed a line when you dragged my family into it..

    So, attacking innocent people is "fun" to you?

    "This your idea of fun, Mav???"

    I can keep doing that, at least till I get bored. I'm happy to bring back civilized decorum but it starts with you policing your own behavior...

    You attack my family and then you beg for "civilized decorum"..

    Any personal insults I commit are limited SOLELY to Democrats in general or you (or Victoria or Cad or whomever) personally ONLY.. And *ALL* are well deserved..

    But you had to cross the line and attack innocent family members...

    You do what you want... If you want to see daily comments of 100... 200... 300 comments, keep up with your attacks and I will be happy to oblige... You KNOW I can do it...

    If you want to see comments in the mid 20s or 30s, chill the frak out and get your fellow Weigantians to do the same..

    The choice is yours...

    Get off your high horse and read what I posted. I insinuated you insulted your wife. The worst I directed toward your wife is that I assume she is wonderful. I obviously don't know the woman, so maybe she isn't wonderful. In that case I promise to never assume your wife is wonderful...I guess?

    Did I post it knowing full well it would trigger you into victim mode? Hell ya! Will I do it in the future under similar circumstances? Hell ya!

    Purely my opinion, but I'm really am not particularity bothered by your threat. If you really want to spend your life scouring the net for every possible version of the right wing story du jour to fill up this comment section that just about everyone will just scroll past and never read...all the power to you. I'm happy to laugh my ass off as I go about my day occasionally posting barbs. Heh...

    The choice is yours...

    No, the choice is yours. I'm good either way...

    Why don't you just try leaving our partners and other loved ones out of our discussions here unless they start contributing? Sound like a plan!?

    I insinuated you insulted your wife.

    You brought here into our battle.. Just like Victoria.. We're having a bloodsport (virtually speaking) and, like Victoria, you (victually) grabbed my wife and used her as a shield..

    That is unacceptable behavior... Even in the bloodsport that is Weigantia that is unacceptable..

    Did I post it knowing full well it would trigger you into victim mode? Hell ya! Will I do it in the future under similar circumstances? Hell ya!

    The fact that you enjoy using another man's wife to attack a man because your attacks directly on the man are futile proves that you are no man at all... :^/

    You have my terms.. Accept them, don't accept them.. Either way, it works for me..

    Here's what I don't understand ... why can't Biden find a way to prevent Ukraine from ever becoming a member of NATO.

    While Biden is at it, he should wangle a way to shoo Canada out of there too. /sarcasm

    Were you on mind-altering substances when you decided Biden should "go to bat" for Russia? Rhetorical questiton.

    That is a very reasonable demand by Russia.

    Nope. :)

    Bullshit. You are a delicate flower who can't handle a school yard insult equivalent to "your mother wears combat boots". If you want to play victim that's your problem not mine. To me you lost the moral and ethical high ground the second you doubled and tripled down on what was probably an honest mistake thus turning it in to a lie. Your "bloodsport" is you being a dick. Once you go there you don't get the moral and ethical high ground back. And once you go too far and bring in the "B" word, well you brought you wife into it, not me. Don't want that taunt, don't use the "B" word. And for some twisted reason you need to do your victim complex thing then go for it.

    The fact that you enjoy using another man's wife to attack a man because your attacks directly on the man are futile proves that you are no man at all... :^/

    The fact you think this is an attack on your wife and not an attack on you proves just what a snowflake you are. A real man owns up to his mistakes...

    I'm with Kick on this, you have to stop talking about your wife in these threads. it's disrespectful...

    I know, right? The Michale Troll cannot stop itself. He constantly disparages his spouse, and if that's no bad enough, then he pulls his grandkids out of his ass and starts hammering away at them too.

    So, to recap: The Michale Troll cannot stop itself because it is a wife beater and a pedophile.

    If the Weigantia Michale Troll wants to constantly post about her, we'll just naturally end up discussing her. If he didn't bring her up ad nauseam, I would wager no one else would either. Not rocket science.

    Yes, a real man does..

    And you not owning up to the fact that you dragged my wife into this is proof you are not a real man..

    So I guess you made your choice..

    So be it..

    If someone has to explain to a bitch like you the difference between a man posting about how much he loves and adores his wife of 40 years and a disgusting scum sucking troll using the man's wife to attack the man???

    Well, then it's obvious that the scum sucking troll would never understand the difference.. Probably because she is simply a bitter old biddy who is all alone in this world, who has no one that really cares about her...

    I will react accordingly...

    I get it Bashi.. You are embarrassed because, like the bitch Victoria, you are also alone in this world.. No one who cares about you.. No one who would give a rip if you lived or died..

    Of course you're embarrassed... If I was as pathetically alone as you are, I would be embarrassed too...

    You just can't stop yourself from talking about your wife, can you? Bashi is absolutely correct... it's that whole Jekyll and Hyde demeanor of yours on full blown display.

    If you're going to keep brining her up, you will naturally be called on it. That is a promise; count on it.

    Well, then it's obvious that the scum sucking troll would never understand the difference.. Probably because she is simply a bitter old biddy who is all alone in this world, who has no one that really cares about her...

    Au contraire... for on this forum alone, there is quite obviously a whiny little snowflake who is demonstrably obsessed with me. Hell, you aren't even a snowflake; at this point, you are an entire collection of little snowflakes. Not that you haven't proven the depths of your inherent ignorance to the entire forum already, but please keep whining like a snowflake mountain and digging.

    As for me personally? Like I said, you are obsessed with me. I've never been alone. Even in the womb I wasn't alone because great things come in multiples... looking at you MtnCaddy and MyVoice.

    Explain to the forum again how my attacks on you "do absolutely NOTHING.." (your words) While you're at it, keep repeating my pseudonym over and over and prattling on and on incessantly about me. That'll show everybody!

    I will react accordingly...

    You will clutch your pearls and whine like a pissy little snowflake. It's what you always do.
