President Biden has already racked up an impressive list of accomplishments. He proved he can destroy some of the great things about America without any help from Congress. All it takes is a pen and someone to tell him where to sign.
Biden won’t look back at the damage he’s done. America was declared unworthy by Democrats. Now they have a president with the power to do something about it.
These are the great things about America Biden is destroying
Our ancestors gifted us with the greatest country on earth. We are the success story every nation aspires to. Hundreds of thousands of Americans laid down their lives to preserve and protect what the president is callously tearing apart and replacing with identity politics and liberal globalism.
The president didn’t waste any time apologizing to the rest of the world for the Trump years. Crawling back to the international community tops the list.
Great thing about America #1: respect for who we are
Trump commanded respect from our allies and our adversaries. He knew when to say no. Unlike Barack Obama when he drew a line in the sand he stuck to it. He didn’t care that our allies weren’t happy when he called them to task. He wasn’t afraid of China. Trump refused to allow America to be taken advantage of. He didn’t lack the courage to call out those who tried.
Biden? He made this remark to world leaders assembled for last week’s 2021 Munich Security Conference:
I know — the past few years have strained and tested our transatlantic relationship, but the United States is determined — determined to reengage with Europe, to consult with you, to earn back the position of trusted leadership.1
Trump made sure America stood tall. He knows we don’t have to earn back anything with anyone.
Biden put us on our knees.
Great thing about America #2: equality
We don’t need to worry about equal rights any longer. Now we value equity.
The Biden administration’s identity politics places skin color above all else. It opens the door to all manner of expensive, vote getting social engineering.
To the best of my knowledge the color of your skin doesn’t determine your competency for a job, but the White House bases its domestic policy and hiring decisions on a color and gender preference palette that allows the president to claim diversity victories.
Even science depends on diversity. A Biden order “Restoring Trust in Government Through Scientific Integrity and Evidence-Based Policymaking” makes science and diversity inseparable:
This report shall include a review of the impact on scientific integrity of diversity, equity, and inclusion practices related to the Federal scientific and engineering workforce and scientific Federal advisory committees.2
The ghost of the Obama presidency dictates Biden’s equity policies:
President Biden will reinvigorate the federal government’s role as a model employer by expanding and building on the efforts of the Obama-Biden Administration, by requiring all agencies to take affirmative steps to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion, as well as by requiring accessibility.3
Enforce is more accurate than promote. It means we appoint agency heads like Justice Department Civil Rights Division nominee Kristen Clarke. According to the The Daily Caller she promoted a theory of black racial superiority.4
If Clarke espoused white superiority she would be run out of town, possibly investigated, and almost certainly would never work again. Lucky for her Democrats have an unlimited ability to ignore what they condemn when it applies to them. Illinois Senator Dick Durbin did exactly that when he justified Clarke’s nomination with hate-laced talking points about President Trump:
While the former President was disrespecting the Constitution, undermining democratic institutions, spreading hate, and inciting insurrection, he also reduced the DOJ Civil Rights Division to a shell of its former self. Kristen Clarke is a Justice Department veteran who has the skills, experience, and tenacity to revitalize the Civil Rights Division and renew its commitment to protecting civil rights and ensuring equal justice under the law,” Durbin said.5
Durbin didn’t bother to explain how someone who espouses racial superiority will ensure equality of anything, but equality isn’t the issue. Equity is what’s important even if means advocating racial superiority to balance the books.
Equity is especially scary when we consider the millions and millions of illegal immigrants the president is determined to turn into citizens. What will it take and how expensive will it be to achieve equity for people who arrive with nothing and little, if any education? Biden has already started to answer that question by forgiving their crimes. Taxpayers will get their answer later after the damage is done.
Great thing about America #3: the rule of law
The Wild West isn’t gone yet. We still have shootouts and carjackings in broad daylight on the streets of our big, Democrat-run cities while cash bail is legislated away. Police-involved incidents involving black or brown people mean violent protests as activists and the media get the word out before the facts are known.
The southern border is a free-for-all that’s going to get incalculably worse thanks to Biden’s amnesty stance and catch and release immigration policy. Crimes by illegal immigrants will not only be forgiven, if Biden gets what he wants we will turn them into Americans as quickly as possible. Can Democrats give them the vote before 2024?
The response from the left to the destruction of the rule of law is to demand we restrain law enforcement while we put more criminals back on the streets. Obviously this puts law-abiding citizens at risk, but an even greater danger is the progressive destruction of the threat of consequences for criminal acts.
The one exception? Trump supporters. If you plan to riot and loot make sure to do it in the name of progressivism. All will be forgiven.
Great thing about America #4: good jobs
It’s no surprise that people from all over the world want to come to America. There is no greater place to earn a living and raise a family.
Depending on what you do and where you work there is no greater tragedy than losing the means to make that living.
This country is all about the independence and initiative we’re about to lose to a president backed by socialist-leaning Democrats who will dictate one standard of living for politicians, party bureaucrats, and big money donors and a separate standard for everyone else.
Americans who already lost jobs with one stroke of Biden’s pen thanks to the left’s radical climate policies are being asked to wait for good paying, green union jobs to replace what the administration took away. Despite a White House promise to share details about what’s next for those whose jobs the president destroyed, when pressed Press Secretary Jen Psaki turned combative:
Well, I’d certainly welcome you to present your data of all the thousands and thousands of people who won’t be getting a green job. Maybe next time you’re here, you can present that.6
That’s not what you want to hear when the president just took away your livelihood and put you at the mercy of whatever liberal politicians have planned for your future.
Great thing about America #5: we are all Americans
These days it feels hypocritical to use the word “American.” Now we’re just an assortment of different colors and more genders and sexual preferences than we can keep track of.
Our national identity was the one thing all Americans could rely on no matter what. When a crisis hit we set down our differences, drew together, and did what we had to do to get through it.
The COVID-19 pandemic is one of those crises. Democrats used it to drive us apart. They even managed to inject racism into their anti-American argument as if hundreds of thousands of deaths weren’t sufficiently painful for the nation.
COVID will soon fade into the background thanks to the vaccines developed on Trump’s watch that Biden is taking credit for. That’s bad news for Democrats and the White House. Lucky for them if the worst happens and we actually get this pandemic under control they already have a fallback: domestic terrorism at the hands of anyone who might support Donald Trump in 2024.
Liberal identity politics drive us apart. We’re easier to dominate when we’re divided. That’s why even during the very worst days of the pandemic Democrats were hard at work stirring up trouble and ignoring the destruction caused by their radical base.
This won’t get better with Joe Biden in office. It’s going to get much, much worse. Nancy Pelosi is already hard at work channeling Joe McCarthy and she’s just getting started.
Great thing about America #6: self-reliance
Obama’s flawed liberalism globalism is back:
The Biden Administration has already taken a number of disastrous steps to undo President Trump’s success in countering China. Rather than demonstrating American leadership through a strategy based on peace through strength, the Biden team so far has exhibited a pattern of weakness, and a return to Obama’s failed approach of engaging rather than holding China accountable for it’s bad behavior.7
Like Obama, Biden trades America’s self-reliance for dependence on our adversaries:
The Biden Administration’s recent climate agenda orders will reverse much of that hard work by making the U.S. more dependent on energy imports and technologies from China, Russia, and Saudi Arabia. This will not result in more affordable, reliable energy for Americans and raises serious national security concerns.8
Biden eagerly negated Trump-era policies without the slightest thought to the good they accomplished. As we crawl back to Obama’s international community and beg forgiveness for the four best years America has seen our self-reliance will fall to the demands of allies and opponents who will suck us dry if they can get away with it.
Under Biden, rest assured they can and will get away with it while the administration pats itself on the back for re-engaging with our partners.
The last, greatest thing about America that Biden will destroy?
Great thing about America #7: being American means something
These are confusing times. Being an American used to be a big deal. Now it could mean being an illegal immigrant. It might not mean a citizen the left believes doesn’t deserve to be called American like white people, the police, Republican politicians, and anyone else who offends their woke values.
Being American is the first, greatest thing about living in America. Now we’re back where we were during the Obama presidency with a nation ashamed of its own greatness and a party of anti-American liberals pushing to offer citizenship to anyone lucky enough to stumble across the border with their hand out.
When you devalue citizenship, destroy our national sovereignty, and apologize for our success you have destroyed what makes America great. This appears to be the point of everything Biden is doing.
Why? Let me know your thoughts.
