Update February 13, 2023:
White House task force ignores the easy solution to America’s human trafficking crisis: stop Biden.
We’re used to jargon from White House officials who seem to be under the mistaken impression that the more bureaucratese they throw our way, the more believable their nonsense. Consider human trafficking. Instead of stating the painfully obvious, the president’s Interagency Task Force to Monitor and Combat Trafficking in Persons avoids the issue with an identity politics red herring:
Because human trafficking disproportionately impacts communities of color, women and girls, LGBTQI+ individuals, migrants, and others from historically marginalized and underserved communities, the National Action Plan seeks to link anti-trafficking strategies to the Biden-Harris Administration’s broader efforts to advance equity and support for underserved communities.726
If you thought battling human trafficking was about securing our border, you thought wrong:
The plan reflects the Administration’s commitment to gender and racial equity, workers’ rights, preventing and addressing forced labor in global supply chains, and ensuring safe, orderly, and humane migration.727
Biden’s task force gave us a daunting list of action items preceded by this daunting collection of jargon:
Specifically, the PITF agencies are focused on the following initiatives, rooted in a shared commitment to exercise trauma- and survivor-informed approaches and centered around the foundational pillars of U.S. and global anti-trafficking efforts: prevention, protection, prosecution, and partnerships:728
If you want to read further and find out what those initiatives are, the task force lays out its plan to fight human trafficking729 in great detail. If you have the patience you might even learn a new word or two like “fora” (it’s plural for forum).
I don’t have that kind of patience and prefer the approach adopted by Congresswoman Kat Cammack (R-FL):
Over the last year and a half under the Biden administration, human traffickers at the border have been busier than ever since the president practically hung a “Welcome” sign on our country’s front door. This administration has made it abundantly clear they have no intention of enforcing the immigration laws currently on the books, as proven by their destructive policies.730
There you have it. No jargon. No annoying Kamala Harris babbling about root causes. Just the truth. This is Biden’s fault. He has no intention of doing anything about it. His goal is to stuff America to bursting with illegals. If enticing cartels with promises of massive profits and ignoring the humanitarian crisis he’s created with his open border agenda is what it takes, then that’s what America will do.
UPDATE February 16, 2023:
Never Forgive, Never Forget Part II: Biden targeted Republicans as semi-fascists and enemies of the state. Now he calls us friends.
Less than six months ago MAGA Republicans endorsed semi-fascism. We were the greatest threat to Biden autocracy and Democrat Party authoritarianism, both of which the president placed under the meaningless umbrella of “democracy.” Americans were battling for our nation’s very soul against rampant right-wing extremism, or least that’s what he wanted us to believe:
Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans represent an extremism that threatens the very foundations of our republic.731
In his infamous primetime Battle for the Soul of the Nation address Biden called out MAGA Republicans 13 times. He accused GOP members of “destroying American democracy”732 and engaged in vicious rhetoric unprecedented in recent political memory:
MAGA Republicans have made their choice. They embrace anger. They thrive on chaos. They live not in the light of truth but in the shadow of lies.733
That was two months before midterm elections that cost Democrats the House.
Now the White House message of hate is different. In yesterday’s remarks to a union audience in Lanham, Maryland the president referred to his “Republican friends” seven times. He didn’t use his hateful MAGA pejorative even once. The threats also changed from attacking ideological extremism to threatening vulnerable Americans with alleged Republican efforts to destroy his best in history economy:
Some of our Republican friends in the House are talking about taking the economy hostage over the full faith and credit of the United States. They say unless I accept their economic plans, then — which is irre- — totally irresponsible — they’re not going to pay the national debt, which took 200 years to accumulate.734
Instead of warning about the loss of whatever Democrats think democracy means, now Republicans are the greatest threat to our financial survival and if not stopped will force us into the poor house:
Here’s the deal: If Republicans try to take away people’s healthcare, increase costs for middle-class families, or push Americans into poverty, I’m going to stop them. I’m going to stop them. (Applause.)735
Despite another bad January CPI report that the White House immediately misrepresented, the president insists:
Families across the country are starting to breathe again.736
Remember the old joke about hanging? Americans are resilient. After months of surging inflation and a cost of living Biden and his party made unaffordable for many, we adapted. Grocery lists changed. Nonessentials and even essential items like prescriptions were set aside to free up cash to purchase gasoline to get to work.
Backed by an allegorical sea of blood and flanked by the military, Biden warned about a “nation of fear, division, and of darkness.”737 He succeeded beyond our worst fears in creating that vision in the first few months of his presidency. Conservatives cannot afford to forgive or forget the president’s Soul of America speech or the semi-fascism attack that preceded it. We cannot be friends with Joe Biden now or ever. A line was crossed and we can never go back because we know that any olive branch he proffers is most certainly full of thorns.
UPDATE February 17, 2023:
Biden lynches America: promoting racism and hatred for white people proves this divisive president is unfit for office.
Yesterday Joe Biden attended a screening of the movie “Till” with an assortment of congressional lawmakers as part of his Black History Month observance. He offered his comments to the usual friendly audience as part of an event that was obviously staged for its political potential. As part of his campaign to promote racism as an ongoing scourge this country and our people can never atone for as long as it benefits his party, Biden declared:
To remember history is to shine a light on the good, the bad, the truth, and who we are as a nation.738
The truth is that the only part of our history the president cares about is the bad. He actively promotes racism by bringing the past into the present as if our progress as a nation is nonexistent and irrelevant. That’s why he uses every available opportunity to remind us how we’ve failed to live up to our values even though the bar he raises is purposefully designed to prevent us from reaching that goal.
Biden’s anti-white rhetoric is despicable, dangerous, and destructive
Like attacking Republicans as semi-fascists, nothing good can possibly come from stirring up more hate for white Americans than Democrats have already encouraged and yet that’s exactly what Biden did yesterday as he condemned us in the present for America’s past:
Their crimes? Trying to vote. Trying to go to school. Trying to own a business. Trying to re- — preach the gospel. False — false accusations of murder, arson, robbery. Lynched for simply being Black, nothing more. With white crowds, white families gathered to celebrate the spectacle, taking pictures of the bodies and mailing them as postcards.
Hard to believe, but that’s what was done. And some people still want to do that.739
So nothing has changed? White Americans still have lynching on our minds? This is hardly the first time the president has denounced us for a history we’ve moved beyond. He reminds us that we still don’t measure up to our values because he needs racism. It’s vital to everything from his equity and climate agendas to his administration’s weaponization of government to his re-election bid. To that end, there is absolutely nothing we can do to not be racist as long as racism can be effectively politicized:
And our history shows that while darkness and de- — denialism hide very much, they erase nothing. They can’t erase the past, and they shouldn’t.740
As long as Biden is in charge we don’t have to worry about that. According to the president, we are a veritable hotbed of hate just waiting to escape:
But I learned a lesson: Hate never goes away. It just hides under the rocks until it’s given a little oxygen by lousy people.741
How many Americans are the lousy people breathing life into smoldering hate? Are they the same as the president’s semi-fascists or MAGA Republicans or Hillary Clinton’s deplorables? Biden didn’t say. I’m guessing it includes everyone who doesn’t bend a knee to his flagrantly un-American agenda.
The president is 100% correct. Hate never goes away and never will if it is a useful political tool. Joe Biden is a disgusting hypocrite and liar who points us to a phony racism exit door that he will do everything in his power to make sure is slammed in America’s face no matter what we do.
The only good news we can take from this is that there is no reason to even consider advancing any aspect of the political left’s racial agenda whether that means Corey Booker’s Baby Bonds or the push for reparations. Nothing we do, no legislation we pass, and no amount of money we spend will ever make a difference. Too many of us will be marginalized as hateful, white racists as long as it benefits Democrats, so why bother?
Update February 22, 2023:
Home ownership returns with stunning White House announcement that proves Biden despises you. Harris takes the fall.
It’s bad enough that we have to listen to our president tell us that food prices are falling while government agencies tell us his statements are patently false. We’re used to this sort of thing from Biden. He despises America and most important, the American people. If you don’t believe this is true, ask yourself why he only makes public appearances at events that make him look good. Donald Trump, not Joe Biden will make an appearance in East Palestine, Ohio today.
For all the damage and destruction that has descended on our nation since January 2021, nothing speaks to how much this president despises the American people than his newest boast that he’s “making homeownership more attainable.”743 How? By saving homebuyers $800 per year:
Today, the Biden-Harris Administration announced an action that will save homebuyers and homeowners with new FHA-insured mortgages an average of $800 per year, lowering housing costs for an estimated 850,000 homebuyers and homeowners in 2023.744
On average, mortgage payments are 28% higher than they were one year ago.745 Anyone who has purchased a house and knows how quickly cash reserves disappear is laughing. Those who have not yet had the opportunity of home ownership should be furious at this White House insult to their intelligence.
Harris takes the fall. This will be good.
While Biden sells out U.S. taxpayers in Europe, Kamala Harris earned the opportunity to embarrass herself announcing this wondrous new opportunity:
Vice President Harris and Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Secretary Fudge will travel to Bowie, Maryland, today to announce that HUD, through the Federal Housing Administration (FHA), will reduce its annual mortgage insurance premium by 0.30 percentage points, from 0.85% to 0.55% for most new borrowers.746
I can hardly wait to hear the mess of words that will spill from Harris’ cackling mouth explaining why this is a historic good deal for homebuyers. In an economy where the prices of the necessities of life are not affordable for many Americans, saving a little over $66 per month is not going to make your new house affordable. It probably won’t even cover Bidenflation’s cost of gasoline and food for your family.
$800 per year is the perfect symbol of how much Biden despises his “middle out.” It won’t make a difference in anyone’s life who already has the means to afford the higher mortgage interest rates made necessary by outrageous Democrat Party spending. It will, however, become another feather in the cap of a president who will use this insulting $800 to boast how he made home buying affordable.
UPDATE February 24, 2023:
Identity politics drilldown: Biden administration finds new way we discriminate against Black Americans.
Instead of celebrating the achievements of Black Americans during Black History Month, Biden continues to celebrate his party’s favorite victims.
It seems that President Biden’s accusation that some of us still have plans for lynching on our minds wasn’t enough to send the White House’s message of festering racial animosity in the hearts of the American people. Has the administration pounded its identity politics agenda so hard that radical White House idealogues fear we’re not paying attention when they throw the race card?
Illegals come first. Americans can wait.
Biden imported millions of illegals and asylum seekers into America. We paid to transport them around the country. We housed them in nice hotels. We fed them, took care of their medical needs for free, and made certain they wanted for nothing.
The residents of East Palestine, Ohio were ignored by Biden. He was too busy selling out U.S. taxpayers in Europe, or at least that’s a convenient excuse. Instead, they got jargon and nonsense from Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg who finally had to do something for his paycheck because Donald Trump embarrassed the administration and proved that Biden cares not a wit for Americans that don’t benefit him politically. Even illegal immigrants are more useful to this White House.
Biden stirs up racial animosity to destroy America’s national identity.
Most Americans love this country. That’s a problem for Biden administration efforts to destroy our national identity and replace it with subservience to the Democrat Party.
This is where identity politics comes in handy. Encouraging racial animosity is an incredibly useful tool for destroying our sense of national identity. We can’t be Americans joined in a common goal when hate each other based on characteristics defined by identity politics.
To that end, the president added ableism to our list of racial crimes as part of a “fact sheet” on disabled black Americans. It began with this simple, uncharacteristically true statement:
Black Americans with disabilities are deserving of dignity, respect, and equal opportunity to achieve the American Dream. Black History Month celebrates the resilience and talents of Black people, including Black disabled people.747
If Biden is celebrating anything for Black History Month, it’s victimhood. As per usual, he quickly shifted to attack mode:
This country was founded upon the idea that all people are created equal and should be treated equally. However, it is important to acknowledge that racism and ableism together are longstanding barriers to the full participation and independence of Black people with disabilities. America has made significant progress, but there is more work to do to become an inclusive, accessible, and equitable nation.748
And as per usual, he patted himself on the back:
From the outset, the Biden-Harris Administration has taken historic action to advance equity through Executive Orders, administrative actions, and the provision of funding and resources.749
The White House conveyed its message with damning words and more jargon:
“patterns of segregation”
“multiply marginalized entrepreneurs”
“disparities in quality”
“historically faced discrimination and structural disadvantages in the United States”
“Black families and their children have been underserved”
“disparities are widespread”
“inequities in Social Security programs”750
That’s a pretty equitable, inclusive list of words to describe the racial sins of the American people. Still, you can only yell fire in a crowded room so many times. After a while, people stop paying attention. That’s the reason for Biden’s identity politics drilldown. The president has little else to hang his hat on except lies about his economy, denials about the border, and a nation that is increasingly restive about draining our nation’s coffers and military into a Ukraine war with no apparent end.
The 2024 campaign season is fast approaching. Give it time. Soon we’ll hear about how America discriminates against black, vision-impaired, disabled, transgender illegal immigrants. That’s the great thing about identity politics. Biden will never run out of options for currying favor with donors by damning America.
