For every time Joe Biden shuffles to a podium to blame the nation’s problems on the pandemic, Putin, and his predecessor, there should be a Will Smith-type who walks to the podium, slaps him for his egregious insults to America’s intelligence, then takes his seat and yells: “Keep the lies to the American people OUT! OF! YOUR! @#&%! MOUTH!”

That’s tame compared to what Americans scream at their TVs every time Biden makes a speech.  On April Fool’s Day, he took credit for a strong jobs report that a resilient market produced due, most likely, to eased COVID restrictions.  “It means that our economy has gone from being on the mend, to being on the move,” he said.

That was three days after Bloomberg estimated that households should expect to pay an extra $5,200 a year to buy the same batch of gas and goods, due to inflation.  The jobs speech came a day after his Transgender Visibility Day speech where he promised to advance transgender equality in sports, the classroom, at work, and in the military because of the onslaught of hateful anti-transgender state laws.

“Over the course of my presidency,” Biden bragged, “our recovery has now created more than 7.9 million jobs – more jobs created over the first 14 months of any presidency in any term, ever.  And that’s striking.”

He continued.

“But what’s even more striking is this; in March, the unemployment rate fell to 3.6 percent, down from 6.4 percent when I took office about 15 months ago – the fastest decline in unemployment to start a president’s term, ever recorded. … Our policies are working.”

Two years ago was not that long ago, Joe.  We remember Trump’s economy like it was yesterday.  

The economy was Trump’s greatest strength, which is why terrified Democrats were so gleeful when COVID came along.  Campaign advisor Anita Dunn admitted  privately that “COVID is the best thing that ever happened to him (Biden).”

To hurt Trump’s reelection, Democrats used COVID to keep the economy shut down, blamed him for the weakened economy, and Biden wickedly blamed 200,000 deaths on Trump’s COVID response while completely ignoring China’s Xi, who covered up the origins of the virus that killed millions.  

If that wasn’t enough, Democrats used COVID as an excuse to change election rules, including mail-in ballots, in a way that exposed the vote to massive fraud and coercion, as Bill Barr so sternly warned CNN’s Wolf Blitzer in September 2020.  Still not sure what happened to Barr but on this, he was right.

“Wolf, this is playing with fire! …” Barr said.  “… if people have to have confidence in the results of the election and in the legitimacy of the government; and people trying to change the rules to this methodology which, as a matter of logic is very open to fraud and coercion, is reckless and dangerous.”

Blitzer didn’t blink.  He, like the rest of the propaganda media, weren’t looking for facts.  As voting anomalies piled up, they looked the other way, ignored Hunter’s laptop scandal, and Biden was elected under the blackest cloud in American history.  Then, “on Day One,” Biden overturned Trump policies that were great for the country to replace them with policies that would, predictably, wreck the country. 

Biden and the Democrats have since fomented political unrest among discouraged groups and pretended to solve problems that don’t exist.  As the entire world watches the mess he’s made, bumbling Biden blames it all on the pandemic, Putin, and his predecessor.

When Biden tells us with Corn Pop braggadocio that, “Our policies are working,” it’s infuriatingly insulting because it’s such a blatant lie.  

Police reform policy is not working.  Border policy is not working.  Equity and social justice policy is not working.  Climate policy is creating an existential disaster.  Foreign policy is a joke.  The COVID mandates were crippling.  The system of “checks and balances” has no checks and weighs heavily against one side.  The justice system is arbitrary.  The rule of law is optional.  Economic policy has created inflation with no protection against recession.  The election system is deeply compromised.  And the Afghan pullout was a catastrophe.  

In fact, lying straight-faced that his “policies are working” reminds me of what Biden told former Afghan President Ashraf Ghani, in July 2021, when Afghanistan was facing a full-scale invasion from the Taliban and 10,000 to 15,000 international terrorists.  Ghani desperately needed air support.  

“… I need not tell you,” said Biden, “the perception around the world and in parts of Afghanistan, I believe, is that things aren’t going well in terms of the fight against the Taliban. … And there’s a need, whether it is true or not, there is a need to project a different picture.”

Projecting a different picture, whether it’s true or not, is Biden-ese for lying.  His botched Afghanistan retreat put on full display just how far he’d go to “project a different picture.”

The Taliban was “drunk on the fumes of victory,” as Victor Davis Hanson put it.  Biden offered Ghani a flight out, that he took.  Thirteen servicemembers and hundreds of Afghans were murdered by an ISIS-K suicide bomber.  Author Douglas Murray called the pullout “a colossal, massive, generational screw-up.”  The House of Lords seethed openly, exhausting the English language of synonyms for the word “catastrophe.”  And the British Parliament punished Biden with censure.

But Biden shrugged off stark reality.  He called the pullout “an extraordinary success.”  

After he yelled out a twisted version of reality in his speech ending the 20-year war, Biden turned his back on America and its friends, took no questions, and shuffled away.  This was the first tectonic plate of international power that shifted in favor of bad actors in the Middle East, Russia, and China.  

Today under hardline Taliban rule, Afghan families are selling their children and their organs to buy food.  A Senate Foreign Relations Committee, in February, released a report that found that 9,000 Americans were left behind, not 100 to 150 like Antony Blinken publicly told Americans.

As animated that so many politicians are against Vladimir Putin, and rightfully so, Putin has caused nowhere near the damage to the fundamental institutions of the United States that Biden has.  Biden, “expressing moral outrage,” told the world that “this man [Putin] cannot remain in power.”

Fine, but what Putin has done to Ukraine with bombs, tanks and artillery, Biden is doing to American institutions through sloth, incompetence, and horrendous policies that have no connection to reality.  The incompetent sloth is “brother to the great destroyer” as Proverbs 18:9 says.  

Like Ukrainians, America’s desperate cries for help – from anyone! – have either come too late or not at all, and millions are fleeing for refuge to red states from the constant shelling from the federal government and its blue-state allies who threaten their lives and livelihoods with police “reform,” high minimum wages, high taxes, high regulations, draconian green energy policies, and big welfare and “equity” programs.  

Come midterms, we need to slap Biden and his ilk into “political oblivion,” as Trump once put it.  Joe Biden and his savage pack of political cannibals – politicians who devour their own country – cannot remain in power.
