Another Failed Presidency at Hand

Original Article

Posted By: IowaDad, 9/8/2021 6:45:42 AM

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

What a moron! Anyone who thought Old Demented would be "the man of the hour: a calming presence exuding decency, moderation and trust." had his head jammed so far up his backside orifice that he had lost all touch with reality. Bite-me as President is being the same as he always ever was as a Senator - a massive screw up. It was all so predictible, but hey, never underestimate the stupidity of American voters like Bret Stephens.

Let’s be clear, Stephens voted for him because he hated President Trump. No sane reasonable person could have watched a moment of Biden’s appearances and believe he could have handled the job. Fools like the author, who actually believed Biden would be a calming spirit exuding decency, moderation and trust are laughable. Biden was a proven plagiarist, liar, racist, pervert, and moron and Stephens knew it. Someone so dishonest deserves nothing but contempt which pretty much defines you both.

Why do these people think that Biden was any different than the dolt he always was? Now he’s worse because he is going Alzheimer’s. They call Trump a demagogue because he demanded that his appointments and Congress do some work and get results, and get them now. Washington wasn’t used to producing quickly but Trump changed that. If anyone noticed, you never heard a Trump employee criticize the man. Biden was doomed to fail from the beginning because he is dumb as a rock to go along with his rigid personality, and his appointments and advisors are just as bad.

What a truly waste of oxygen Stephens is. He is just now coming to realize how bad a choice in the demented, corrupt, deceitful, plagiarist Joe Biden was. But, worst of all, he praises George H. W. Bush's Presidency as "who would restore dignity and prudence to the Oval Office after the mendacity and chaos that came before"---meaning President Reagan. Stephens is so warped that he still has to attack the finest US President in the last 100 years, Ronald Reagan, even after 30 years.

Bret Stephens and the rest of the lefty media infrastructure go exactly what they wanted: A lefty Democrat as President, and Trump gone. You people dragged Biden over the finish line. You hid him for months. You had to know exactly what you got. The problem was the truth reared its ugly head, and you could no longer defend Biden or his policies. What do you want Bret? All this whining means you want something. Just spill it already. You want Biden to fit the image you built? Not going to happen. You want a president Harris? If you could not hide Biden, you sure as heck will be unable to hide Harris. You guys got exactly what you want, and it now hangs around your necks in all its ugliness. You got an anti-American President with anti-American policies, but for some inexplicable reason thought most American voters would love it, and now you find out you are WRONG. So now you are back tracking. It won't work.

WASHINGTON — Two weeks after celebrating America’s near “independence” from the coronavirus, President Joe Biden is confronting the worrying reality of rising cases and deaths — and the limitations of his ability to combat the persistent vaccine hesitance responsible for the summer backslide. Cases of COVID-19 have tripled over the past three weeks, and hospitalizations and deaths are rising among unvaccinated people. While the rates are still sharply down from their January highs, officials are concerned by the reversing trendlines and what they consider needless illness and death. And cases are expected to continue to rise in coming weeks.

Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen said Thursday on CNBC’s “Closing Bell” that the U.S. economy will have “several more months of rapid inflation.” Yellen said, “We will have several more months of rapid inflation. So I’m not saying that this is a one-month phenomenon. But I think over the medium term, we’ll see inflation decline back toward normal levels. But, of course, we have to keep a careful eye on it. Measures of inflation expectations, I think, still look quite well contained over the medium term. [Snip]. I believe fundamentally, you know, that this is something that will settle down.”

ROME — Pope Francis cracked down Friday on the spread of the old Latin Mass, reversing one of Pope Benedict XVI’s signature decisions in a major challenge to traditionalist Catholics who immediately decried it as an attack on the ancient liturgy. Francis reimposed restrictions on celebrating the Latin Mass that Benedict relaxed in 2007. The pontiff said he was taking action because Benedict’s reform had become a source of division in the church and been used as a tool by Catholics opposed to the Second Vatican Council, the 1960s meetings that modernized the liturgy. Francis issued a new law requiring individual bishops to approve celebrations of the old Mass

Key inflation measure rises at

Consumer prices roared higher last month, rising at their fastest pace in decades. Inflation rose 5% in the 12-months ending in May, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported Thursday. That marked the biggest jump since August 2008. Stripping out food and energy costs, which tend to be more volatile, inflation stood at 3.8% over that 12- month period. It was the biggest increase in so-called core inflation since June 1992. In the month of May alone, prices rose 0.6% on a seasonally adjusted basis, slightly less than in April. Core inflation, excluding food and energy prices, stood at 0.7%, down from 0.9% in April.

Perhaps, at long last, the deadly reign of Anthony Fauci will come to an end. That’s because The Intercept, a hard-left publication, has revealed 900 pages of government documents definitively proving that Fauci used his position to fund gain-of-function research into bat viruses at the Wuhan Institute of Virology (“WIV”)—and then lied to Congress about it. Since February 2020, the wizened Fauci has been the face of the government’s response to the pandemic. In the ensuing 20 months, Fauci was frequently wrong, incredibly arrogant, and deeply dishonest. Because he was the anti-Trump, though, we were stuck with him.

President Joe Biden on Thursday will impose more stringent vaccine rules on federal workers, and take steps to encourage private businesses to do the same, during a major speech meant to lay out a new approach to combating the coronavirus. Among the steps the President will take is signing an executive order requiring all federal workers be vaccinated against Covid-19, with no option of being regularly tested to opt out of the requirement, according to a source familiar with the plans. The President will also sign an executive order directing the same standard be extended to employees of contractors who do business with the federal government.

Just three months into Joe Biden’s presidency, his polling numbers were already showing signs that the honeymoon was over. A Washington Post/ABC News poll taken at the time showed that despite incessant media fangirling, Biden’s approval rating sat at 52%, which was the third-lowest 100-day rating since the days of President Harry Truman. Things haven’t gotten any better since that time as Biden has taken hits for his handling of the economy, the Wuhan virus pandemic, the border crisis, and Afghanistan. In fact, a trifecta of polls released within a 24-hour time span of each other last week showed some of the worst numbers of his presidency but he still

'That's not really okay with us.'She also insisted that every president has the 'right' to appoint people they feel are aligned with their values on these advisory boards, even though they are non-partisan.
