‘Worst attack on our democracy since the Civil War!’ Can Biden really be this dumb?


Whoa! Joe Biden thinks that that relatively mild, wholly unarmed breach of the Capitol was the “worst attack on our democracy since the Civil War!” How historically ignorant are his speechwriters? They seem to have forgotten about the assassination of Lincoln, WWI, Pearl Harbor and WWII, the Kennedy assassination, 9/11! Did they really think that line would resonate with anyone with a modicum of historical knowledge?

While the entire speech was banal, this was the most egregious spoken line. That an American president would utter such an unspeakable lie is the measure of this man. He is a fool. Surely, he knows better but he and his handlers believe that most Americans are so dumb, so uninformed, they will accept such a lie as true.

That one line tells us everything we need to know about who Biden and the cabal running him are; they absolutely believe the American people are not only simpleminded but virtual toddlers who will believe anything they say.

The rest of his not-SOTU speech only confirmed that Joe is the puppet of some thoroughly ridiculous people. No wonder Jen Psaki, when asked about vaccine hesitancy among “white, Republican men,” replied that they are placing ads on country music stations and NASCAR sites! Yeah, that’s right Jen. The only people not submitting to the jab are rubes too dumb to know what’s good for them. In fact, no vaccine for covid was necessary since there are effective treatments and a 99% recovery rate. It’s perhaps just a greedy grab for big bucks by big pharma. Biden is in their pocket too.

As for the January 6th event at the Capitol that Biden stunningly called the worst attack since the Civil War, not a single person arrested was armed. The only person killed, Ashli Babbitt, was murdered by a member of the Capitol Police who to this day remains unnamed. That the FBI and DOJ have pretended those present that day were all domestic terrorists is a shocking turn of events. They’ve even placed some on a no-fly list, which is entirely unconstitutional. Their crimes were petty in comparison to the BLM/Antifa riots that destroyed numerous cities over the summer.

Carney: Biden Pitches Vision of America on Training Wheels — Forever


It is, however, ultimately a rejection of the optimism of Donald Trump, who claimed he could Make America Great Again through better trade deals, better approaches to regulation, getting control of immigration, rejecting the politics of racial division, and allowing U.S. businesses to thrive. Trump looked back to the American successes of the past through industry, good jobs, and growing families and sought to recreate the conditions those required.

In place of the American businessman, farmer, and worker, Biden envisions a heroic government lifting up American families. Instead of a private sector creating jobs that make family formation affordable, Biden seeks a government that subsidizes the costs.

Where current social welfare programs are aimed at those who need it most, Biden seeks to expand the welfare state from a safety net to something like a handrail along each step. Or training wheels on a bicycle that can never be removed.

None of the envisioned benefits come with work requirements or any conditions at all because they are rooted in the notion that work is not something that ought to be encouraged. Nor are benefits something to be earned. Both jobs and benefits are provided to those that will take them. Fears of unintended consequences or negative incentives have been declared to be nothing more than scary folk tales.

At its heart, Biden’s vision is a rejection of the idea that we live in a world of scarcity, in which prosperity is a hard-won societal achievement brought about by increases in productivity and innovation. It sees prosperity as permanent but inequitably distributed. The challenge is not to generate wealth and comfort, but only to deliver it into the right hands.

New $1.8T ‘family plan’ adds to mega spending for COVID and infrastructure

The $1.8 trillion package would include more than $500 billion for education, $225 billion each for child care and paid time off for workers, as well as $45 billion more for food stamps and school meals for needy kids.

Biden said his proposed social spending would be paid for with tax hikes on top incomes and on wealthy investors, and he repeated his promise not to raise taxes on Americans who earn less than $400,000 a year.

Biden noted, “20 million Americans lost their jobs in the pandemic” while “the roughly 650 billionaires in America saw their net worth increase by more than $1 trillion.”

“They are now worth more than $4 trillion. My fellow Americans, trickle-down economics has never worked,” he said.




do these id10t's really think people with wealth are going to stand by and let Biden confiscate their money

Joe Biden Proposes Crippling Taxes, Strangling Regulations, and Completely Unsecure Elections in Prime-Time Speech

As a friend said during a lunch date Wednesday, “Why is anyone surprised that Biden is doing exactly what we all told them he would do if he won the election?” The only thing somewhat surprising is the speed at which he’s enacting his (or Jill’s, or Kamala’s) totalitarian agenda.

Since many of the individual pieces of the Democrat party’s wet dream wish list of brutal legislation can’t pass on their own (specifically, PRO Act). The Hologram’s decided to roll them into a massive “infrastructure” bill. That bill faces a tough road in the House, where Dems can only lose two votes and still pass a bill without GOP support – making both extremists like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and centrists in swing districts extremely powerful. Its status in the Senate, should it get there, is also on extremely shaky ground thanks to “moderates” like Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Sen Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ), and because of a “Jim Crow” remnant, the filibuster.

[clip]

And then Biden turned his attention to the PRO Act. Regular RedState readers know that this bill is California’s AB5 on steroids, meaning, it doesn’t have the exceptions that AB5 had. Under the PRO Act, everyone’s assumed employment status is employee, not independent contractor, unless the employer can prove that the proposed contractor’s services are exempt by using the ABC Test — a test which is virtually impossible for any arrangement to meet. And, all employers are required to give employee contact information, including address, phone number, and email, to union organizers so organizers can contact them directly. To anyone who’s witnessed the bullying tactics unions employ, that is terrifying.

But here’s how Biden (or whoever wrote his speech) spun it:

The American Jobs Plan is a blue-collar blueprint to build America. And, it recognizes something I’ve always said. Wall Street didn’t build this country. The middle class built this country. And unions build the middle class. And that’s why I’m calling on Congress to pass the Protecting the Right to Organize Act – the PRO Act — and send it to my desk to support the right to unionize.
I’m sorry, but without Wall Street investment, the middle class couldn’t build the country. And, everyone has the right to join a union or seek a unionized workplace. They’re rejecting it in droves. What people want is the right to work, the right to earn income in the ways that make sense for their family and for their lifestyle. If we’ve learned anything from the pandemic, we’ve learned that flexible, remote work is feasible on a large scale, and more and more working parents are seeking these arrangements. The PRO Act vision for the American economy is going back to a mill/factory town paradigm.


The Hologram continued:

By the way – let’s also pass the $15 minimum wage. No one should work 40 hours a week and still live below the poverty line. And we need to ensure greater equity and opportunity for women.
If someone works 40 hours a week and still lives below the poverty line, they need to upgrade their skills. Period. And do you know what ensures greater equity and opportunity for women? The ability to be their own boss, to set their own hours, to negotiate contracts, and be a self-employed independent contractor. Which the PRO Act outlaws.


And the most laughable claim of the night?

And the IRS will crack down on millionaires and billionaires who cheat on their taxes.
Hahahaha… let’s start with Hunter, okay?

He then blames the job losses from the pandemic on “CEOs,” because sure, they shut down the economy.

According to one study, CEOs make 320 times what their average workers make. The pandemic has only made things worse. 20 million Americans lost their jobs in the pandemic – working- and middle-class Americans. At the same time, the roughly 650 Billionaires in America saw their net worth increase by more than $1 Trillion.
Biden is absolutely not curious about the reason for that. But all of our readers understand perfectly.

What Could Go Wrong? Menthol Cigarette Ban up Next on the Biden Equity Agenda


President Joe Biden continues his administration’s goal of seeking equity for Blacks by banning menthol tobacco products.


In 2014, the American Journal of Health [Cheyne, Andrew, et. al, July 2014 American Public Health Association] noted that while the 2009 Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act (signed by then-President Obama) brought greater regulation on tobacco products, it excluded a ban on mentholated products.


In 2009, the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act (FSPTCA)11 authorized the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to regulate tobacco products.12,13 The law also established the Center for Tobacco Products, and Tobacco Products Scientific Advisory Committee (TPSAC). Though hailed by some commentators as an important tobacco control opportunity,14 the legislation controversially excluded menthol from an immediate ban on flavoring additives in cigarettes.15 As a concession for the exemption, TPSAC’s first order was to make a recommendation about menthol to the FDA on the basis of the available scientific evidence.
In March 2011, TPSAC concluded that the “removal of menthol cigarettes from the marketplace would benefit the public health in the United States.”16(p225) In July 2013, the FDA released a preliminary scientific evaluation on the public health effects of menthol, confirming menthol‘s harmful effects on smoking initiation and cessation, and called for public comment on the report.17 In September 2013, the FDA extended the public comment period for an additional 60 days,18 with any potential rulemaking to be announced after that time.

Biden Says White Supremacists Have Replaced Jihadists as ‘Most Lethal Terrorist Threat’ to U.S.




“And, we won’t ignore what our own intelligence agencies have determined – the most lethal terrorist threat to the homeland today is from white supremacist terrorism,” Biden added in the remarks.

While delivering the speech to Congress, Biden slightly departed from the prepared script, saying that “white supremacy is terrorism.”

Biden’s remarks echo comments by FBI director Christopher Wray in March congressional testimony.

“The problem of domestic terrorism has been metastasizing across the country for a long time now, and it’s not going away any time soon,” Wray said at the time. “We viewed it as such a critical threat that back in June 2019 we elevated racially and ethnically motivated violent extremism to our highest threat priority, on the same level as ISIS and homegrown violent extremists.”

However, Wray said that while the biggest part of the FBI’s domestic terrorism cases involve white supremacists, not all domestic terrorists could be classified as such.




Right but AntiFA / Burn Loot Riot isn't a problem

So BLM and ANTIFA are fine examples of Americanism and the White man who is doing nothing , and being accused of racism and White supremacism is the problem. We are the terrorists going into the ghetto's and killing the black gangs and drug dealers and addicts.

WTF is wrong with people who think like this. It's past time for a white backlash against this freaking fake President and total fool.
How long will we put up with being the majority in this country, and the major fund source to keep Government operating and then being SHT on.

One imagines Biden views this as racially progressive because he imagines it will diminish rates of smoking among blacks. Even if it does, though, what a horribly paternalistic plan.

White smokers, Biden seems to think, should be free to make their own decisions about sucking down a Marlboro Light, either because they are better able to handle that choice, or because they are on some level disposable. Black smokers, on the other hand, must be protected by the government from their own bad choices. The proposal limits Americans’ choices on a racial basis, but of course Biden thinks he is doing it for black people’s own good.

Even the American Civil Liberties Union has objected to a racialized approach to smoking. The group opposed a House bill in 2020 that sought to ban menthols on the very basis of its disproportionate impact on black Americans. They also oppose this ban. Encouraging the black community in particular to engage in an illegal cigarette marketplace will only increase dangerous police interactions, the very thing progressives claim they wish to make less common.

This is just another example of a race-based leftist policy destined to go hopelessly awry to the detriment of black Americans. Just as defund the police efforts have led to skyrocketing crime rates in black communities across our country, which is why black voters overwhelmingly oppose the idea, banning menthols will introduce dangerous fake cigarettes and needless police interactions.

Ratings For Biden’s Address To Congress Are In, And They’re Horrendous


The outlet emphasized that the low ratings come out to a 47% drop relative to former President Donald Trump’s first joint session address:

Joe Biden’s first address to a joint session of Congress drew 22.6 million viewers across seven major networks. That’s a drop of 47% from 43 million or so who tuned in to Donald Trump’s first speech to a joint session, on February. 28, 2017, across those seven networks.
Deadline further outlined the breakdown across the major networks:


According to fast national numbers from Nielsen, ABC topped coverage with 4.03 million, followed by MSNBC with 3.94 million, NBC with 3.54 million, CBS with 3.37 million, CNN with 3.18 million, Fox News with 2.92 million and Fox with 1.63 million.

Biden's menthol cigarette prohibition is so obviously stupid and wrong it boggles the mind

Let's be clear: Big Tobacco is a callous, lying cabal that exists to profit off addicting people to a deadly product. But cigarettes aren't going to be made illegal overnight, just a certain flavor of cigarettes.

The ban will make menthol a prized commodity, a sought-after product whose artificial scarcity will inevitably drive up its price on non-legal markets.
A flavor will now be a crime, making criminals out of people who want some mint flavoring with their toxic tar.
This idea isn't just dumb and wholly unnecessary - it's plainly destructive to the communities it's supposed to be helping.

Joe Biden’s Speech Was a Declaration of War on America


He did not mention his predecessor and his entire address of over an hour was based on the only argument the Democrats have put forward on their own behalf in the last five years: Trump hate. He assumed the headship of ”a nation in crisis,” in which our “house was on fire,” and “We stared into the abyss of insurrection and autocracy,” a pitiful and almost subliminal appeal to the Trump Monster.

The country had “done nothing about immigration in 30 years,” (most of them under Clinton and Obama), except that under Trump illegal immigration was reduced by 90 percent, and the principal problem was effectively solved until Biden stopped construction of the southern border wall and reopened the borders. He said it was time to do something about the ”dreamers” but that was not the policy of his party when Trump attempted to help them. Biden called for resources to deal with the “root cause of why people are fleeing” Central America as if it were the business of the United States to raise the welfare of those poor countries, and feed more graft into them, rather than to monitor its own border and apply a sane system of an admission of immigrants.

He revived the old Obama nonsense about combating employment with unionized green jobs, and leaped into the time warp of bygone days with the bunk that “the middle class built the country and the unions built the middle class, and we must promote the right to unionize.” Unions today are an almost wholly retrograde force redundant to market pressures for higher wages and better working conditions and largely confined to the stagnant backwater the public sector.

Throughout his speech—both in the written text and his own interpolations—Biden repeatedly stressed that the nation is in competition with others (mostly China) on the question of which will thrive and which will sink in the 21st-century economy. Failing to use the government’s power to reshore research and industry, to re-create a vibrant and more inclusive middle class, he argues, is a prescription for national decline.

Biden’s is an argument with potentially wide political appeal. In one sense, it’s an appeal to a sane American nationalism. Unlike any previous president since the current era of financial globalization began, he states that the past 40 years of government acquiescence in and even encouragement of corporate flight and offshore investment has proven to be a national disaster, and he puts forth policies that would reverse that dynamic. In another sense, it’s an appeal to the nation’s commitment to democracy, recognizing that the rising challenge to the nation isn’t simply coming from other countries, but from autocracy itself, from the claims that autocracy provides a better path to progress than democracy does. If there is such a thing as Bidenism, it is this, a one-two punch aimed at financial globalism and oppressive autocracy, an affirmation of the value of both an egalitarian national interest and liberal democracy.

There have been a lot of comparisons of the size and scope of Biden’s domestic proposals to Franklin Roosevelt’s, but Biden and the people around him seem to have realized that there’s one other parallel, one that helped Roosevelt and can help him. Roosevelt took office at a time when autocracy was on the rise. Hitler had come to power in Germany just one month before FDR was sworn in as president. Democracy stood in disrepute, as the governments of Europe and Herbert Hoover’s United States had utterly failed to find remedies for the worldwide depression.

Roosevelt’s case for governmental activism—as he put in one 1932 campaign speech, his program boiled down to its simplest form was, “Try Something!”—often made note that the survival of democracy itself depended on the adoption of the policies that comprised the New Deal. Biden has realized that the world now faces at least an echo of that same challenge, perhaps more than an echo. And like Roosevelt, he isn’t hesitating to make the case that the adoption of his policies will make a strong case for the viability of a now-challenged democracy, at a time when European and other democracies haven’t been particularly good at meeting their citizens’ needs.
