"President-elect" Joe Biden is a tool of the Left and will be disposed of once he is no longer of value to them. For now, he is subject to their desires, and virtually every item on the Left's wish list, from no need for voter ID to restrictions on the First Amendment, is harmful to society.

Okay or Not Okay?

Suppose real journalists began posing vital questions to Biden. Wouldn't that make for a press conference that people would actually watch? Here are more than two dozen questions that would make Biden cough, stammer, drift, and choke:

Have you ever taken any money from China? Have they established a massive spy network in the U.S.? What will you do about China’s vigorous program of intellectual property theft? Have you ever taken any money from Ukraine? Did you give Ukraine a six-hour ultimatum to fire the prosecutor looking into nefarious activities involving your son, Hunter? Have you ever taken any money from Russia? Are you aware that your son has received substantial payments from these countries as well as Kazakhstan and Romania? Why did Hunter mention that he needed to make a key to his office for you?

What is your relationship with Tony Bobulinski? How many times did you meet? Did your brother meet with him as well?

On the Home Front

Are you willing to have Dominion voting machines undergo forensic audits? If everything is on the up-and-up, there should be no problem here, right?

Do you support packing the Supreme Court? Do you believe that increasing the number of justices to 16 or 25 or some other number is in the best interest of our Republic?

Are mathematics, the sciences, and other core academic disciplines to be taught to accommodate "politically diverse points of view?" Should entire college curricula be redesigned because most of the great works of literature throughout history have been written by white males? Do you believe that children may choose their gender?

Is it okay for colleges to hold separate graduation exercises and celebrations for different ethnic minorities? Is it fair when conservative speakers on campus are disrupted from speaking or banned altogether from campus? Should colleges set up safe spaces? Can a university promise students an unbiased education when 97% of college professors’ political donations go to Democrats? Is it prudent that all student loan debt be exonerated?

Are migrants to be given free healthcare the moment they cross the border, as you and all Democrat presidential contenders stated on live television? Should we have open borders and let in anybody who wants to come here? Are sanctuary cities a good idea, and do they support the lives and aspirations of actual American citizens?

Is late trimester abortion acceptable? After a baby is born, is it the right of the mother and the doctor to choose whether or not that person will continue to live? Should Medicare be provided for all and, if so, how do we pay for it?

Towards a Civil Society

Do you support defunding the police? Is it reasonable to condemn the nation’s entire police force? Is it okay when law enforcement stands down in the face of violence committed by those on the left? Is BLM justified in its lawlessness, political extortion, and intimidation? Is calling others "racist" acceptable when, in your own heart, you know that you are biased at times against this group or that? 

Are the goals and violent tactics of Antifa acceptable to you? If they're proud of what they stand for and forthright in their actions, why do they wear ski masks? Why do they often go after the most vulnerable people they can find in any gathering? 

No Meeting of the Minds

Too many people who apparently voted for Biden embrace mass insanity and it's getting more absurd by the week. What's more, such people misunderstand the magnitude and ramifications of many of their political and social views, which, unchecked, would destroy our civilization in less than a decade.

Ronald Reagan said it best, “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men [and women] were free.”
