If you have always believed that everyone should play by the same rules and be judged by the same standards, that would have gotten you labeled a radical 50 years ago, a liberal 25 years ago and a racist today.
Funny but true in the minds of 10s of millions (approx. 115 million in point of fact) of Americans – two unrelated and extremely geographically separated cryptids telling you to “fuck off” has an equal to- or greater Confidence Level and Interval than Joe Biden having actually and legally won the 2020 election for POTUS. I.e., neither seems particularly believable to most of those Americans.
Unsurprisingly, the response by the sorts who possess that firmly held belief that “Creepy Uncle Joe” did win the 2020 election fair and square is also quite similar to the reaction of most people to those who believe in Bigfoot and the Loch Ness Monster.
Ah yes; the border, then and now – with then being 2020 and now being 2021. If one makes the mistake of lending unearned credence to the Democrats’ lamestream media, one would likely believe that things are quite different. Of course, one would be wrong to do so. The situation surrounding the quarantining and processing of the hordes of Central and South American invaders is almost exactly the same now as it was then. Indeed, it has changed very little overall since Obama had the “processing centers” created during his tenure in the White House.
No; the only thing that has objectively and significantly changed is who is POTUS. But then, that is sufficient unto itself for the media to completely change their narrative and “reporting” of the border crisis, its fallout, and its human toll. When Donald Trump was POTUS, how his administration handled the illegal aliens was “horrific,” “abominable, and “racist.” But, now that Biden has been installed in the White House, everything his regime does is copacetic or just a sad fact of “properly” handling the influx of “refugees,” even though nothing of substance has changed.
Of course, the media’s behavior now is also essentially the same as it was when Obama’s regime set up the camps at the southern border in the first place. Hellfire! back then, what passes for journalists these days even defended or remained silent upon his regime’s handing unaccompanied minors over to human traffickers!
But then, even this exuberance of bias and lying is the same as always in these degenerate times. The Dems’ propaganda corps reports based upon who is doing something, not what is being done.
Sometimes I look at- or hear about the Dems’ token, Kamala Harris, and see the Joker. Specifically, I see Harris as Heath Ledger’s more street thuggish Joker in Jack Nicholson “Whiteface.”
Now, normally I wouldn’t really care that much because the office of Vice President serves little function and presents an equally little risk in the vast majority of cases. Hence, I wouldn’t be so serious. But Creepy Uncle Joe’s dementia-ridden mind is already softening and it’s likely to go full-on spongiform mush before too long and those running the Democrats know that and have probably planned this so that Harris can take over as POTUS without actually have been elected to the office.
Much like Rep. Rashida Tlaib(D MI-13), Kamala Harris, the Democrats’ Vice-President, bears a funny but unfortunate resemblance to certain members of Animal Kingdom. I say that the resemblance unfortunate because, again like Tlaib, the resemblance does a grave disservice to those animals. 😉
Biden was installed as POTUS by the Democrat Party and their Lamestream Media 52 days ago and, during that time, we’ve heard very little from him or about him and his actions. In many ways, Biden is MIA or, at least, whatever he’s doing, e.g., Executive Orders (EOs), is going largely unremarked and unreported upon by the MSM. And, he’s yet to hold a single formal press conference since the “election.” Of course, this has been “explained” by Leftist secondary media sources as being Fox News’ fault. 🙄
So, all humor and sarcasm aside, we, the People really have no real idea if Biden is just doing essentially nothing to-date or if he’s doing things but the Democrat-controlled media is failing to report upon while, at the same time, the few less-than-Leftist outlets are shut out completely. Either way, this is a problem, a potentially existential problem.
Biden – Biden – Biden Where’s Biden And What Is He Doing?
A Do Nothing POTUS
In the former case, Biden doing little to nothing of import beyond what little we’ve heard of, this is a problem for our nation because a “Do-Nothing” POTUS is not a good thing. It turns over the reins of governance to the Legislative branch alone. This threat is, however, mitigated in Biden’s case because there’s vanishingly little chance that anything he did or has done was or would be in the best interests of the nation and our People.
But … That begs the question of why is Biden doing so little since taking office and why is he sequestered away from the media. Is he just overwhelmed and incapable of moving forward at a more normal pace due to the vast amount of changes he and his handlers would obviously want to make? Or, is Biden incapable of doing anything safely and is being kept away from the media because dementia has robbed him of cognizance?
That the Democrat-controlled Congress is seeking to strip Biden of both his sole authority to use nuclear force and his War Powers, scarily lends some evidence to the latter possibility – the possibility that the Democrats installed senile and mentally incompetent almost-octogenarian as POTUS and are now mitigating the risk such a person could pose. And that is an existential threat to our nation and people – and to the world at large, come to that.
A Say Nothing Media
The latter option, that Biden quietly doing things but the Democrat-controlled media is remaining silent upon it, is a different yet equally threatening possibility. While less physically dangerous, keeping the American citizenry ignorant of the actions of the POTUS strikes at the very core of our nation and People’s liberty, since a properly functioning democracy depends on an informed electorate.
The path to tyranny normally starts with censorship of negative press about the ruling person or party. In the end, it doesn’t matter if that is enforced censorship or allegiance-derived codes of silence by a complicit media. The latter does, however, indicate that there is a deeper problem in America that patriots will need to solve for.
In the end, it does matter what the issue is with Biden’s apparent lack of activity in office so far. Yet, it is a case where either reason is evidence of a great, glaring, and dangerous problem with both him and the media.
