UPDATE August 27, 2022:
During Overdose Awareness Week, Biden reminds us what he didn’t do to save the 100,000 lives destroyed by fentanyl.
With fentanyl pouring into the country and the president doing absolutely nothing to secure our nation’s open border with Mexico, it’s shocking that the White House would even touch the issue of overdose deaths and the 15% increase in mortality that happened the year Biden took over the White House.551
Ordinarily this would be a stunning admission from a president who already has too much blood on his hands because of progressive immigration and border policies that encourage human trafficking, drug smuggling, transnational gang activity, and the unstoppable flow of illegal foreign nationals into our country.
What makes this different is that Joe Biden is not an ordinary president. He is so removed from the consequences of what he has done to destroy America that the upsurge in overdose deaths simply doesn’t matter. His proclamation on Overdose Awareness Week, 2022 is another cookie cutter White House release that doesn’t read much different from his proclamation on Overdose Awareness Week, 2021 except for the update on all the overdose deaths.
It’s not as if there haven’t been legislative efforts to deal with the problem. Rep. Scott DesJarlais introduced the Stop Fentanyl Border Crossings Act in April 2022:
Rep. DesJarlais’ legislation would use Title 42 authority to expedite the expulsion process of illegal border crossers due to the immediate public health risks posed by the record amounts of fentanyl and other deadly and addictive drugs crossing the U.S.-Mexico border.551
Not a single Democrat backed the bill. Nor did any Democrats back the Senate version. Meanwhile, the Biden administration is battling to eliminate Title 42 once and for all so there are no more barriers to the flow of illegals into America.
The president’s perfunctory proclamation doesn’t mention fentanyl purveyor China. There was no comment on the border, either. Instead, the families of Americans dead from drug overdoses got jargon from whoever writes this nonsense for the president:
By adopting evidence-based approaches to reducing overdose risks and lowering barriers to treatment and support, we can save more American lives.552
Evidence is not the problem. We know who is responsible for flooding the U.S. with fentanyl and we need to stop it:
Mexican cartels are increasingly manufacturing fentanyl for distribution and sale in the United States Precursors are imported from China and other countries and then pressed into pills, powder or mixed into other drugs at massive, industrial-scale labs.553
Thanks to Biden’s border policies, the surge of migrants keeps agents busy processing the flow of illegals into the U.S. instead of dealing with problems like drug trafficking. Rep. Jody Hice (R-GA) warned last year:
Border Patrol agents are now critically understaffed, working longer hours but less time on the line patrolling the border as their attention is diverted to the care and custody of families and children due to the recent migrant surge.554
A year from now we’ll get another proclamation. More Americans will be dead from fentanyl, but don’t expect the president to care any more than he does now. Keeping America’s borders open and unrestricted to accomodate illegals and transnational gangs and making every effort to not anger the CCP are far more important priorities for this White House than saving American lives.
UPDATE August 30, 2022:
Americans own our democracy. It’s not Biden’s to destroy.
When you hear someone in the Biden administration talk about our democracy, who are they talking about? This was from Karine Jean-Pierre yesterday:
So, we have — you know, we have seen MAGA Republicans attack our democracy. We have seen MAGA Republicans take away our rights, make threats of violence, including this weekend, and that is what the President was referring to when you all asked me last week about the semi-fascism comment.555
Our Great Unifier is drawing the battle lines between right and left, ours and theirs. Joe Biden is the last man in America who should be calling others fascists or giving his flunkies the green light to accuse Republicans of attacking democracy. He is going down a path that can only end with locking down his political opponents so he can claim the “democracy” he willfully destroyed for himself, his party, and the leftist elites who support his every move.
Jean-Pierre failed to clarify what threats of violence she was referring to, though obviously the weekend reference was to Lindsey Graham’s comment to Trey Gowdy about what would happen if Donald Trump is prosecuted. That the DOJ will indict Trump seems like a foregone conclusion, just like the results of the January 6th Kangaroo Court were decided well before the proceedings got underway.
Graham’s comment was not a threat of violence. It was a statement about the mood of the nation and certainly nothing on the level of the direct threats we’ve heard from the likes of Chuck Schumer against Supreme Court Justices, Maxine Waters against Republicans in the Trump administration, or the nationwide violence Democrats promoted and protected during the summer of 2020.
This is the difference between our democracy and their democracy, rules for us and rules for them. It’s the difference between the government established by our Constitution and the Banana Republic Joe Biden is building.
For the Biden administration “democracy” means an authoritarian state controlled by radical Democrats. It has nothing to do with the voice of the people and certainly not the people’s voice through elected conservatives. This is why Republicans are extremists and “semi-fascists” and a Supreme Court decision that returns the decision on abortion to the people is politicized as a threat to democracy and our rights and freedoms.
Having the strongest voice in the nation should imply some measure of ethical responsibility in how you use that voice:
Look, this is a President that believes when you are President of the United States, it is your duty, it is your responsibility to have the strongest voice of — when it comes to democracy, when speaking about democracy. And that’s what you’re going to continue to hear from this President.556
Biden has the strongest voice because he controls a politicized, weaponized Department of Justice, Homeland Security, and FBI. This gives him complete and total control. His agency heads have free reign to threaten and intimidate. Don’t confuse setting up his political opposition to be targeted by his security bureaucracy and making an example of Donald Trump by raiding his private residence with democracy. It doesn’t matter what Biden, Jean-Pierre, or anyone else in the White House calls it. This is authoritarianism, pure and simple.
UPDATE August 31, 2022:
This is not our America, Part II: Biden preaches unity by attacking Republicans over violent crime.
It was about time for the president to trot out a pre-midterm plan for the violent crime that’s been surging on his watch. During a speech at Wilkes University in Pennsylvania yesterday he didn’t do that. Instead, he reinforced the battle lines between Republicans and his destructive, radical left agenda and then, astoundingly, made an appeal for unity:
And when we are united, there is not a single thing we cannot do — not a single thing. (Applause.) I mean it.557
By now you have no doubt figured out what unity means to Biden: absolute submission to his authoritarian rule.
The president is well on his way to destroying any semblance of national unity with weaponized words like this:
Think about this now. Did any of you think, even if you’re as old as I am, you’d ever been an election where we talk about it’s appropriate to use force — political violence in America? It’s never appropriate. Never. Period. Never, never, never. No one should be encouraged to use political violence. None whatsoever.558
Never? In his senility did Biden forget about the summer of 2020 and how his party promoted, forgave, and even bailed out those who engaged in political violence? How about Chuck Schumer’s threats to Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh? How about his administration’s refusal to protect conservative justices after an assassination attempt in violation of a federal law requiring precisely that?
Political violence from the left is not an issue for Joe Biden or the Democrat Party. It’s a feared political tool and they know it.
This is the worst kind of divisive partisan politics imaginable. In typical Bidenesque fashion that drove up fuel prices instead of doing a common sense reset, the president is going into full-bore anti-Republican attack mode despite the already restive tone of the country.
Will Graham be the Biden DOJ’s next target?
Central to this effort is spreading disinformation about Senator Lindsey Graham’s comment about the potential fallout if Donald Trump is prosecuted. Anyone who heard the exchange with Trey Gowdy knows that the senator did not encourage violence. He warned about the implications of a federal bureaucracy that protects Democrats and is weaponized against the administration’s political opponents and Trump, in particular.
This was not a threat. It was a statement of fact attested to by the cover-up of the Hunter Biden laptop scandal during the 2020 election, the refusal to pursue Hillary Clinton over her email server, and the promulgation of the Democrat Party’s Trump-Russia collusion hoax. While we wait for the inevitable showy Trump indictment and maybe even a staged perp walk, will Graham be the next target of the Biden DOJ for inciting domestic violence? The president’s rising anger and hatred for his opposition seems so out of control that I wouldn’t expect anything to be off limits.
Biden didn’t mention Chicago, Los Angeles, or New York while promoting his Safer America Plan. This seems odd considering these are three of the violent cities we hear about every night on the news. Instead, he targeted mass shooting sites like Uvalde, Texas and Las Vegas and fell back on wholly irrelevant January 6th to attack the GOP:
And look, you know, if we’re in a situation where — to this day, the MAGA Republicans in Congress defend the mob that stormed to Capitol on January 6th. Defend them. You all saw it. I don’t care how frustrated you are.559
Driving Americans apart by further inflaming simmering partisan anger is not going to unify the country. It won’t encourage us to work together to make America safer. That’s not what his Safer Communities plan is about, of course. Biden’s abrupt reversal on funding the police isn’t nearly as hypocritical as it sounds. This is about left-wing “community policing” and inevitably, throwing money at Democrat-run cities that already have no cash bail laws in place and radical DAs entrenched to make certain criminal defendants are let off the hook.
The real purpose of Biden’s Wilkes-Barr address was to set the stage for tomorrow night’s televised event to bolster his anti-conservative threat propaganda. The appearance provided more backstory to an administration effort to throw the full weight of the federal government against conservative Americans. Blind hatred won’t create unity, but unity has absolutely nothing to do with what Joe Biden is after.
UPDATE September 2, 2022:
This is not our America, Part III: A deranged Joe Biden just incited political violence against Republicans and he knows it.
President Biden fell back on the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence during last night’s hateful, divisive, anti-Republican campaign address. He had the temerity to utter We, the People not once, but ten times. He warned our democracy is under attack and then he let America know who the enemy is.
Yes, this was a vicious campaign attack on Donald Trump. There is nothing new about that. Democrats are absolutely terrified of anyone who will make America great. Greatness is not what they want. Everything Trump did undermines their effort to destroy our country bit by bit so they can blame others for what they’ve done and spend our money to keep themselves entrenched. How else do we explain why these radical, far left hacks took the booming economy they were willed by their predecessors and turned it into the shambles Americans are struggling to survive today?
Had we left the Oval Office vacant, our nation would be better off. A mean-spirited, radical left autocrat will not make America better.
Political violence is not off limits for Biden and the Democrats.
Last night we saw a desperate, dangerous, cornered man with a legacy of destroying the country Americans entrusted him with. Biden declared that political violence is off limits. We know this is a lie. Political violence from the left is completely acceptable to this president, his party, and his increasingly dangerous, weaponized authoritarian bureaucracy.
Democrats will tell you that Antifa doesn’t exist. When Republican campaign offices are vandalized or worse, they will deny that Biden incited the party’s violent foot soldiers. We’ve already witnessed an assassination attempt against a Supreme Court Justice who Chuck Schumer publicly threatened and the White House repeatedly condemned as extremist and linked to America’s greatest enemy, MAGA Republicans. This was not a coincidence. If Schumer and Biden don’t know it, they are too mentally feeble to hold political office.
Joe Biden is the most dangerous man in America. Flanked by his military, he just incited violence against his political opponents. Democrats control both houses of Congress and our military, security, and justice apparatuses. We know from the left-wing riots they justified during the summer of 2020 that whatever political violence ensues in the days and weeks following Biden’s address will not only be ignored, it will be promoted with further inflammatory remarks to spur even more political violence as their divisive rhetoric bears fruit.
America’s president touched off an anti-Republican, anti-conservative and most important, anti-American civil war last night. Don’t expect left-wing domestic terrorist groups like Antifa and Black Lives Matter to differentiate between Republicans and whatever Biden means by MAGA. They won’t. Biden’s words were meant to incite violence again conservatives and he knows it.
UPDATE September 5, 2022:
America’s workers make us great without unions and Biden just admitted it.
Union membership in the private sector is dwindling. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics the number of workers who belong to unions continued to decline in the first year of the Biden presidency from 10.8% in 2020 to 10.3% in 2021.560
In 1983 the rate was 20.1%.561 I think we can safely call this a trend.
The public sector and especially education workers boast a much higher union membership rate, but it’s still barely one-third of workers in this sector. This gave the National School Boards Association enough clout to convince the Biden’s weaponized Justice Department to attack the First Amendment rights of parents concerned about how unions are schooling their kids. This was a pretty terrifying signal about the extremes to which this president is willing to go to enforce his far left values and a preview of last week’s unpardonable assault on conservative Americans.
Instead of simply honoring the spirit of American workers no matter who they are or where they work, the president opted for division and threw the familiar Biden race card:
Our Nation continues to fall short of its promise to deliver equal opportunity to workers of color and women, among others, and we can do more to ensure that good-paying jobs are accessible to everyone.562
His race and equity-obsessed communications staff probably doesn’t know that more black Americans belong to unions than white Americans.563 Nevertheless, Biden threw the union race card a second time yesterday in support of California’s Agricultural Labor Relations Voting Choice Act:
And it’s especially important today for Black and Brown workers whose voices have long been silenced through shameful race-based laws and policies.564
Like Obama’s “you didn’t build that” rejection of America’s entrepreneurial spirit, the president implies that unions are responsible for everything that the middle class has:
The middle class built America, and unions built the middle class. When organized labor wins, families win. We all win.565
As our economy recovers and rebuilds, we must build it from the bottom up and the middle out — not the top down — so everyone benefits.566
He said the same thing after the release of the July jobs report, only the president took the credit for 3.5% unemployment for himself:
And, it’s the result of my economic plan to build the economy from the bottom up and middle out.567
Which is it? The impact of Biden’s economic policies is far more disastrous for America’s working and middle classes than the fact that only 1 in 10 of our non-public workers belong to a union. Let’s chalk this up to our nation’s entrepreneurial spirit and best in the world workers who rise to the occasion every morning to get their job done despite the Biden administration’s best efforts to interfere in their lives to benefit the Democrat Party and its Big Labor donors.
UPDATE September 6, 2022:
America is too great a nation to allow Biden’s dangerous, anti-Republican propaganda to continue.
I’ve always considered any reference to WWII Germany off-limits in any kind of discussion about politics in America. It’s a line so reprehensible you never cross it, but I’m going to make an exception in Joe Biden’s case. He chose to step over it and never looked back.
The president is obviously convinced that repetition will help gaslight Americans into believing that Republicans are violent, hateful extremists:
But the extreme MAGA Republicans in Congress have chosen to go backwards — full of anger, violence, hate, and division.568
This is incredibly dangerous propaganda and shameful lies from a shameful president who accuses others of fascism while he retraces the footsteps of those before him who chose a very wrong path with terrible consequences for their country.
There is absolutely no place in America for political propaganda purposely designed to turn Americans against alleged enemies of the state. After last Thursday’s hateful diatribe many of us hoped that someone in the administration would stand up, do the right thing, and convince the president to change course. Instead, Biden continued his
assault and contradicted his excuse that he’s not talking about Trump voters or most Republicans:
The biggest contrast from what MAGA Republicans — the extreme right, the — the “Trumpies” — they want to go to — these MAGA Republicans in Congress are coming for your Social Security as well.569
If “Trumpies” are the extreme right, then Biden is targeting millions and millions of Americans who support the former president as enemies of the people, the state, and our democracy. His threats are lies, of course. The repeated assertion that Republicans are a violent threat is especially troubling:
Look, extreme MAGA Republicans don’t just threaten our personal rights and our economic security, they embrace political violence. (Applause.) Look — no, look, the reason — I’m not talking all Republicans, I’m talking about these extreme MAGA Republicans.570
This is America, not pre-WWII Germany. It’s unacceptable to turn anyone into America’s enemy to wrangle political advantge knowing that encouraging more hate after you’ve spent nearly two years dividing the nation could easily result in bloodshed. We saw with the Brett Kavanaugh and Lee Zeldin assassination attempts what can happen. Despite the president’s insistence that he doesn’t support political violence, his inciteful words speak for themselves.
It’s shocking to think that anyone could believe that life in America is better with Biden at the helm, but that’s what he wants you to believe:
We can choose to build a better America or we can continue down this sliding path of oblivion to where we don’t want to go.571
In contrast to his anti-Republican propaganda, Biden’s better America really is all about violence. Rampant crime. Gang warfare fueled by the drugs his border policies bring in. Horrendous abuse, human trafficking, and the death of migrants on both sides of our border. Promoting a culture that has no respect for life and has made killing our most helpless and vulnerable a political raison d’etre for the Democrat Party.
This is Joe Biden’s America. We need to put an end to his reign of terror the moment the polls open on November 8. History provides too many examples of what happens when a despicable, valueless autocrat like this president takes things too far because it benefits him politically to do so.
UPDATE September 9, 2022:
Roadmap to ruin: Biden releases new misinformation about what he’s done to destroy our economy.
The White House’s “Biden-Harris Economic Blueprint” was released this morning. It may be the best example of big government misinformation you will ever read:
The President’s first two years in office have been two of the most productive in American history, and as the Blueprint explains, these accomplishments are all part of one economic vision.572
This is no joke, as the president would say. You may be thinking yes, Biden’s first two years in office were extraordinarily productive because he managed to turn an economy that worked into an economy that hurt in a matter of months. He transitioned the world’s greatest economic powerhouse into a beggar nation and he still has the arrogance to take credit for flying in baby formula from other countries and lowering unaffordable gas prices by draining our National Petroleum Reserve instead of backing off on his anti-fossil fuel agenda.
The White House tried to squirrel its way out of being blamed for the atrocious COVID-19 death toll on Biden’s watch that defied his 100 days campaign promise:
When President Biden and Vice President Harris took office, our Nation faced multiple unprecedented crises: a once-in-a-century virus taking as many lives in one year as U.S. lives lost in all of World War II, millions of jobs lost, hundreds of thousands of businesses closed, and the existential threat of climate change.573
Since Biden won’t be honest, I will:
More people died from COVID under Biden than when Donald Trump was president. Trump’s Operation Warp Speed gave us vaccines that saved countless lives. Biden ran out of COVID tests and was forced to buy a supply from the same country his family does business with and that he let off the hook for the the truth about the origins of this pandemic virus.
Democrats closed schools and businesses with their authoritarian lockdowns. Republicans like Ron DeSantis were viciously attacked for trying to keep their state economies open.
The existential threat of climate change is Democrat propaganda. Yes, we need to pay attention to how our activities impact the climate. No, we are not facing imminent climate Armageddon but without a reliable power grid, we may well face doom from not having affordable energy we can depend on.
The Biden administration’s credit-taking is so appalling it questions whether Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre is responsible for ridiculous statements like this:
President Biden, Vice President Harris, and Congressional Democrats quickly spurred the strongest and most equitable economic and labor market recovery in modern history, after inheriting a pandemic economic crisis.574
The truth is the Biden administration took a sound economy and destroyed the foundations it was based on. Now everything costs too much, 401k(s) have dropped in value, inflation is out of control, and the only solution Biden and the Democrat Party have to the destruction they wreaked is to spend as much money as possible to appease their donors so they can take credit for a better economy that’s always just a bit more spending around the corner.
Remember, these are the same people who jacked inflation all the way to 9.1% and then passed a massive spending bill to fix the damage that was really an updated AOC Green New Deal in disguise and had nothing to do with reducing inflation.
The White House admits that “there is more work to do, including immediate work to support the U.S. economy’s transition from historic recovery to stable, steady growth with lower inflation …”575
The White House is fond of the word “transition.” It means socialism, destruction, and ruin for the greatest economy on earth and hurting working families who Biden is convinced will believe anything he promises for midterm votes because they just aren’t capable of seeing through his lies.
UPDATE September 12, 2022:
Biden’s September 11 remarks about national unity dishonor the presidency and our nation.
President Biden’s comments on yesterday’s anniversary of the September 11 terror attacks would have been stirring and even inspirational if he or anyone in the White House believed a word of what he said. National unity is not the goal of this administration. It is a long-forgotten campaign promise designed to install a divisive, far left progressive in the White House.
If you want to hear a genuine, heartfelt speech about unity, listen to King Charles’ address after the passing of Queen Elizabeth. If you want to hear a politician say things he doesn’t believe or live up to, then Biden’s 9/11 speech is your ticket:
You know, we regained the light by reaching out to one another and finding something all too rare — a true sense of national unity.576
Biden is correct. September 11 brought the nation together for a time. Any sense of national unity gained from that day is all but extinct.
A president who targeted “MAGA Republicans” as semi-fascists trying to destroy our democracy can’t possibly think that anyone believes there is sincerity in these words:
We’ll secure our democracy together as one America, the United States of America. That’s who we are. That’s who your loved ones were and why they gave so much.577
It’s who we were. Thanks to Joe Biden’s brand of leadership we are a divided, angry nation and yet the president keeps talking unity while he pushes the envelope. With a decisive election around the corner, he has ramped up the partisan hate to truly unprecedented levels.
The president fell back on history to reflect on values he has worked hard to obliterate:
The American story — the American story itself changed that day. But what we did change — what we will not change, what we cannot change, never will, is the character of this nation that the terrorists thought they could wound.578
On September 1, 2022 Joe Biden attacked that national character, something he called the “soul of the nation,” in an angry partisan rant the likes of which Americans have never heard from a president. Like 9/11, this was a historic tragedy we will never forget. Now we know in no uncertain terms that when this man speaks of national unity, he’s just mouthing meaningless words. You heard the real truth in front of a blood red background, flanked by our military.
Biden doesn’t believe what he said to commemorate what we lost on September 11. His efforts to divide the nation and set us against our fellow Americans dishonor the presidency, our nation, and the memory of those who died that day.
The 9/11 terrorists failed to irrevocably wound the character of our great nation, but our 46th president just might.
UPDATE September 13, 2022:
Great Thing About America #73: We help our neighbors. Biden deserves more credit than he gets for his commitment to economic growth in Mexico.
For perhaps the first time ever, the White House is failing to give itself credit where credit is due. During “U.S.-Mexico High-Level Economic Dialogue” in Mexico City yesterday, Secretary of State Anthony Blinken, Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo, and other administration representatives lauded the “furthered cooperation and commitment to our regional economic growth, integration, and longstanding strategic partnership”579 with our neighbor to the south.
The potential for growth in Mexico has not been overlooked. Thanks to White House border policies, business for Mexican cartels is booming. Human trafficking profits are reported to be as high as $14 million per day and $20,000 per migrant.”580 When the Biden administration is finally successful at ending Title 42, the human trafficking business should be even more profitable as word gets out that America’s very last vestige of a territorial boundary has finally been obliterated. Finally, our border will be just like the Wild West again, ready to be exploited for profit.
As the White House pointed out after the meeting:
Regional economic strength has enabled total trade between the United States and Mexico to surpass pre-pandemic levels.581
Again, kudos to our president. Not only is the human trafficking business booming, the drug trade between our countries is also thriving. The results are impressive:
Someone in the United States dies every 7.5 minutes from fentanyl poisoning. Illicit fentanyl overdoses are now the number one cause of death among adults 18-45. More than COVID-19, cancer, heart disease, and all other accidents. Illicit fentanyl overdose deaths among teens accounted for 77% of adolescent overdose deaths in 2021.582
Even though they were called semi-fascists by the president, Republicans still stepped up and gave credit for commerce with Mexico where it is richly deserved:
Law enforcement officials confirm that the drugs found on the streets throughout the country are laced with fentanyl and other synthetic opioids that have been manufactured in China and smuggled across our southern border.583
The White House also gets credit for business innovation. Human trafficking into the U.S. is so successful that smugglers have taken to the skies, or at least try to:
On August 31, RGV agents received information of possible noncitizens attempting to board a private plane at the South Texas International Airport in Edinburg. Upon arrival, Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) troopers requested assistance with two vehicle pursuits that was initiated at the airport. Both vehicles eventually came to a stop, where multiple people were observed fleeing into the nearby brush.584
Since Republicans are the worst threat our nation faces, it’s best to ignore their legislation like the ‘Stop the Cartels Act’ and allow unfettered access to our country so these criminal organizations can benefit from the greatly enhanced business environment. Forget about warnings that “criminal cartels have more control of our southern border than our border patrol.”585 The Biden administration says the border is secure, business is better than ever, and that should be good enough for America.
Besides, on a day when the Dow dropped nearly 1,300 points isn’t it nice to know that someone is profiting from the president’s policies?
UPDATE September 16, 2022:
Biden’s hate-based Unity Agenda seeks to destroy America’s soul for the sake of a few votes.
America is not a hateful country and conservative Americans are not hateful people just because Democrat midterm propaganda says so. What is hateful is a White House unity agenda that drives a stake through what President Biden calls the soul of America so our country can be replaced with a nation built by and for Democrat Party elites and their big money supporters.
Hate will never be a unifier no matter how hard the White House tries.
When Democrats repeat a word or phrase over and over it is never by accident. Karine Jean-Pierre mentioned hate 16 times in her press conference yesterday.586 We heard about hate-fueled violence and hate-motivated violence and just plain old hate.
The White House fact sheet for its unity-promoting United We Stand initiative uses the word hate 21 times and calls for:
a shared vision for a more united America, demonstrating that the vast majority of Americans agree that there is no place for hate-fueled violence in our country, and that when Americans stand united to renew civic bonds and heal divides, we can help prevent acts of hate and violence.587
I would take this even further and say that almost all Americans agree that there is no place for hate-fueled violence. Nevertheless, the Biden administration is determined to convince us that hate, like racism is a problem endemic to our nation because it furthers the cause of the Democrat Party’s activist base.
New United We Stand website can’t stop talking about hate.
The White House offers a new, United We Stand website to rally Americans with a big, bold announcement:
We must all enlist in this great cause of America.588
The word “hate” is used 67 times on the home page of this Biden unity site.
Hate is not a unifier unless your goal is to unite against something. Biden’s great cause is turning the nation against Republicans and electing Democrats. If this was politics as usual that would be fine, but it’s not. This is a scary display we might call semi-fascism or outright fascism because the Biden administration is marshaling federal resources to target those who disagree with our Democrat-controlled government.
Encouraging hate for Republicans may unite those on the political left who want desperately to believe that America is seething with conservatives planning violent acts. Most of us will reject Biden’s attempt to turn neighbor against neighbor for political gain out of hand as the propaganda it most assuredly is.
Democrats will quickly spread this message of hate so it becomes a virulent, ideological virus. Michigan Congresswoman Debbie Dingell agrees with the president:
I stand strong with President Biden and his message on the importance of uniting this country against hate. For more than a year, I’ve warned of the vitriolic language, the hatred, and the fear being weaponized to divide us as a country. This extreme rhetoric is a real and significant danger to the foundations of our democracy. Language of violence has become too common and too easy. This is not a partisan issue – we must all come together to unequivocally reject hate-fueled violence.589
This isn’t about uniting the country against hate. It’s about uniting the country against Republicans before a critical election using propaganda about hate. They are not one and the same. Not even close.
You can’t stand strong with Joe Biden and ignore the vicious attacks he has leveled on good Americans whose only crime is that they don’t share his political beliefs. This is politically-motivated hate. It is inherently damaging and destructive and so one-sided it’s hard to imagine anyone but the most deluded far left activists will fall for it.
When Dingell’s “vitriolic language” and hatred comes from Democrats like Chuck Schumer, who threatened Supreme Court Justices and Maxine Waters, who tried to stir up public confrontations against Trump administration officials, it is ignored just like urban riots are quickly recast as peaceful protests.
On the other hand, the president’s own language and what we heard on September 1 and inferred from his “semi-fascist” targeting of Republicans is political hate incarnate. This is about midterm election politics and the now irrevocable push to silence First Amendment political speech by conservatives as a violent threat to Americans and our democracy. Meanwhile, the Biden administration and Democrats are free to engage in whatever hateful propaganda they believe best advances their prospects for retaining power.
Folks, this is how far our great country has deteriorated under the leadership of Joe Biden and the Democrat Party. We can stop this with our votes on November 8. If we fail, it will likely destroy the soul that for a short time made America the greatest nation on earth.
UPDATE September 20, 2022:
Biden will protect the sacred right to vote, but not in the way you think.
Joe Biden called out tens of millions of conservative American citizens when he labeled us enemies of the state. At the same time the president continues to hold our border wide open to millions of foreign nationals he seems to believe are better people more likely to uphold our democracy than the semi-fascist citizens who have lived here all of our lives, paid our taxes, and love this country.
The president swears he will “protect the sacred right to vote.” His promise should be considered in context. It’s foolish to trust anyone after they have lied to you repeatedly and even dumber to believe them when that person is a ruthless, radical left autocrat who is bound and determined to split this country cleanly down partisan political boundaries because he thinks a divided nation will make him more powerful.
What does this have to do with the right to vote? It’s voter registration time again and the Biden administration is recycling tired, debunked propaganda about Republicans restricting access to the polls:
Unconscionably, state legislatures across the country have passed laws that make it harder to vote. Recent Supreme Court rulings have made it even harder to counter discrimination.590
Turning Americans against any policy, law, or institution that doesn’t endorse Biden administration plans or help Democrats get elected is divisive politics 101 for this White House. What makes it different this election is Biden’s very public use of a politicized and even weaponized Department of Justice and FBI to intimidate Americans and stifle dissent.
No, Stacy Abrams is not the governor of Georgia, Hillary Clinton did not win the 2016 election, and Al Gore did not defeat George Bush, but saying it’s true won’t get you in trouble.
While Biden conveniently ignores his party’s storied history of disputing election results he made it clear in his September 1, 2022 red-draped tirade to the nation that election deniers are enemies of America:
They refuse to accept the results of a free election. And they’re working right now, as I speak, in state after state to give power to decide elections in America to partisans and cronies, empowering election deniers to undermine democracy itself.591
We have plenty of high profile examples of prominent Americans targeted by the president’s authoritarian security apparatus including Trump associates, My Pillow’s Mike Lindell, and President Trump himself. Conservative Americans already marginalized as fascists determined to destroy our democracy got the same message delivered to the parents of school children: shut up, submit, or we’ll come for you.
Months before Biden voiced this threat, Adam Schiff (D-CA) set the stage for the midterms:
Today, Congressman Adam Schiff (CA-28) joined with Representatives Deborah Ross (NC-02), Ruben Gallego (AZ-07), and Terri Sewell (AL-07) in leading 14 of their colleagues to urge the Department of Justice to address insider threats to election systems amid serious concerns that individuals who have denied the results of the 2020 election will seek to influence the outcome of future elections.592
Mind you, this is from a Democrat congressman who helped spread his party’s Trump-Russia collusion hoax and served as Lead Impeachment Manager at Trump’s first failed impeachment. He hounded Trump throughout his first term and poisoned the 2020 election long before the campaign began. Schiff is a Democrat. Nothing will come of it. Instead, he’s back to spread more doubt about this election.
The president wants us to know that he’s on the job:
In the meantime, the Biden-Harris Administration remains committed to using every tool at its disposal to protect the sacred right to vote.593
That tool includes intimidating Americans so no matter what happens in November we keep our mouths shut lest we be hauled away as election deniers and enemies of the state. I have no doubt Biden intends to protect voting. Whether his actions have anything to do with the right to vote or whether he will protect the vote for anyone but Democrats is another question entirely.
