A wildly-left-of-center opening to Congress and the Biden administration has put plenty of heat on Democrats as a result of numerous unforced errors that have included a failed second attempt to impeach President Trump, a divisive inter-party feud over the filibuster, a reckless reignition of the culture war by executive fiat, and a massive border crisis. But over the past four weeks, additional Democrat party and media debacles have turned up the temperature even further and suggest that Democrats may soon face a political inferno. Things have gone from bad to worse for Democrats as Biden’s poll numbers have tumbled, a leftist media smear of Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has gone horribly wrong, Biden’s boycott in Georgia has backfired, and Republicans have set fundraising records while moderate Democrats rush to return the money that socialists from their own party have donated to them.
Here in detail are the four debacles.:
- Biden’s poll numbers have fallen down the stairs. New presidents have historically had a lengthy “honeymoon period” with extremely high approval ratings. But Biden’s appears to be over before it got started as his disapproval rating has actually increased by 12 points, up to 42% from 30% at the start of his term, according to a Monmouth poll. Biden’s popularity during his first weeks in office has peaked lower than Obama, Bush II, Clinton, Bush I, Reagan, Carter, Nixon, Johnson, Kennedy, Eisenhower, and Truman. This should come as no surprise. Over the past four weeks alone, Biden has given Americans plenty of reasons to be furious with him after blatantly attacking the Second Amendment as he rolled out six gun control measures, directly assaulting the separation of powers by creating a commission to pack the Supreme Court with Democrat justices, and presiding over what has become the nation’s worst border crisis since 2006.
Biden’s open border policies appear to be driving his disapproval ratings, with 55% of the public now concerned about the disaster on the Southern border, according to a recent AP poll. After Biden rolled back the proven border security measures of the Trump administration, illegal border crossings have increased from February to March by over 70% to over 170,000, with nearly 20,000 unaccompanied minor crossings in March alone–a nearly unfathomable number.
- Leftist media attacks on Republican Governor Ron DeSantis are so dishonest they shock the conscience of Democrats. Whenever big media organizations spot an effective new conservative on the national scene, they can be counted on to target him or her and come up with a smear that is often pushed or even spoon-fed to their reporters by Democrat Party opposition researchers. This time though it did not just fail to work – it backfired spectacularly. Although Democrat Governor Cuomo faces an impeachment investigation in New York and Democrat Governor Gavin Newsom is looking at a recall election in California, 60 Minutes decided a little over a week ago to ignore those real scandals and try to manufacture a fake one of their own about Republican Governor Ron DeSantis in Florida. By selectively editing the Governor’s answer to a question to make it appear as though he was engaged in quid pro quo corruption with the supermarket chain Publix. 60 Minutes claimed that DeSantis had chosen to distribute COVID vaccines through Publix grocery stores because he had received campaign contributions from the company. 60 Minutes then aired only 18 seconds of the Governor’s lengthy response to their question about the topic, during which he explained that the vast majority of Palm Beach seniors live near a Publix and that Publix was the only chain store ready to distribute the vaccine. But those details did not fit with the false narrative 60 Minutes was pushing.
Unfortunately for 60 Minutes, the facts came out in brutally obvious terms, as in countless stories and columns even Democrat officials in Florida started criticizing the program for its inversion of the truth. For instance, the Democrat director of the state’s Division of Emergency Management, Jared Moskowitz, called out 60 Minutes saying, “I said this before and I’ll say it again…the other pharmacies were not ready to start. Period! Full Stop! No one from the governor’s office suggested Publix. It’s just absolute malarkey.” Palm Beach County Mayor Dave Kerner, another Democrat, asserted that 60 Minutes reporting “was not just based on bad information – it was intentionally false.” He continued, “They know that the Governor came to Palm Beach County and met with me and the County Administrator and we asked to expand the state’s partnership with Publix to Palm Beach County… We asked and he delivered. They had that information, and they left it out because it kneecaps their narrative.” Kerner concluded: “They are hellbent on dividing us for cheap views and clicks. 60 Minutes should be ashamed.”
- Biden’s Georgia boycott has exposed his brazen hypocrisy and pro-China worldview. It is hard to believe that “Joe from Scranton” who campaigned on the theme of “unity” would support a job-crushing, revenue-depleting boycott of an entire state in the middle of a pandemic just because the state passed a common-sense voter ID requirement. But that is exactly what Biden did when he said he would “strongly support” a boycott of Georgia because the state now requires all voters, rather than just in-person voters, to present voter ID to cast a ballot. When Major League Baseball’s All-Star game left the state, Biden said that “[i]t is reassuring to see that for-profit operations and businesses are speaking up.” The move cost Cobb County residents, many of whom voted for Biden in 2020, more than $100 million in lost business. In supporting the Georgia boycott, Biden took an even more extreme position than the leftist former gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams or radical Senator Raphael Warnock. Ironically, Biden’s boycott caused Major League Baseball to move the game to Colorado, a state with a more restrictive early voting law than Georgia.
What stands out is the sheer hypocrisy of the move. Biden recently watched a sporting event, the men’s NCAA national championship basketball game, and then praised the players even though the event took place in Indiana, a state with a nearly identical voter ID law to the state of Georgia. Further, Biden has refused to call for a boycott of the Beijing Olympics in China, which has falsely accused the U.S. military of creating the coronavirus, disappeared doctors and journalists who tried to tell the world about the virus and forced 1.5 million Uighur Muslims into concentration camps, where they are often brutally tortured. Regarding the oppression of China’s Uighur minority, Biden said recently: “Culturally there are different norms that each country and their leaders are expected to follow.”
- House Democrats are beginning to see the trouble they are in as swing district members send back Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s campaign contributions and Republicans set fundraising records. After a wild leftist voting spree from January to March, House Democrats who finally escaped the DC media bubble and returned home seem suddenly worried their constituents see them as extremists. For example, Representatives Conor Lamb (PA-17), Carolyn Bourdeaux (GA-07), and Elissa Slotkin (MI-8) recently received an unexpected and apparently unwelcome wire transfer into their campaign coffers from Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, an extreme socialist and prominent supporter of the defund the police movement. These vulnerable Democrats each received $5,000 from Ocasio-Cortez and promptly declined the initial transfer or said they would return the money as they did not want to have Ocasio-Cortez on their donor rolls. These swing district Democrats may be going out of their way to try to distance themselves from one of the most radical politicians in America, but they are still willing to vote the same way Rep. Ocasio-Cortez does in the vast majority of cases. For instance, according to a ProPublica analysis, Rep. Lamb votes the same way Ocasio-Cortez does 88% of the time, Rep. Bourdeaux does it 95% of the time, and Rep. Slotkin votes the same way 89% of the time. Donald Trump used to call this their “corrupt bargain” with Ocasio-Cortez and her socialist forces. If Rep. Ocasio-Cortez doesn’t run an expensive left-wing primary challenge against them, they will vote her leftist line.
While Democrats are busy returning the campaign cash they received from fanatical socialists, Republicans are busy collecting record numbers of donations from working class Americans. The Wall Street Journal recently reported that Republican Representative Kevin McCarthy alone raised a historic $27.1 million in the first quarter of 2021, the most money any Republican representative has ever raised, and less than 2% of it came from corporate political-action committees. The National Republican Congressional Committee also announced that it had raised $33.7 million in the first quarter and $19.1 million in March alone – “an odd-year fundraising record,” according to the Wall Street Journal.
Four debacles in four weeks are a lot, even for the Democrats. But, is there a fifth one on the way?
The Biden forces have recently been pushing Hunter Biden out on TV with his book release and a string of interviews in what may be an attempt to shore up public sympathy for the former crack addict and scare off Justice Department investigators, especially FBI Director Christopher Wray, from continuing their probe into not only Hunter’s taxes but also money laundering and foreign influence peddling. Time will tell. But nothing freezes a party’s legislative agenda like corruption.

These Left-wing Democratic ideas are ruining our GREAT Country! This ‘way’ is not sustainable.
As of this moment (4-17) Biden has a pretty good approval rating, but a lot of it has to with the possibility that a lot of people are just grateful that he is keeping a low profile and (unlike several of his more recent predecessors) not trying to live in everyone’s head 24-7.
Very nice article, but it would be helpful to know which Republican lawmakers are fighting back and striking back with vigor at all these democrat missteps. Conservatives need to become very confrontational and aggressively attack these democrat initiatives at every opportunity. This is open war and is no time for turning and playing nice if the country is to be saved. Also would be nicety know which individuals deserves my financial support. The national committees seem to support anyone with an R behind their name so I only donate to Conservative originalists not rings!
I, typically, donate to my favorite republicans, in my home state. Here in NH we have two democrat senators that act like wall flowers as cities burn and COVID floods across the border. One of them is up for re-election in 22 and there will be a Gubernatorial race, here. I will be making a large donation to the two republicans who run in these races. We see what democrats do when they have the majority. Any republican is better than any democrat.
Me too Richard. Maggie has to go!
Keep it up, Xiden! With any luck, Republicans will sweep the next election, formally recognize that the 2020 election was illegitimate, and impeach both Xiden and Harris on the grounds of impersonating elected officials,
This article reads like fulfillments of what “my” = accurate prophets have been forecasting. God Is Always Correct!
Great article AMAC! I’m so glad America is fighting back against the Marxist left and their socialist agenda!
realityanddenial.wordpress.com check out companies and brands that donate to Antifa and BLM
I do enjoy the articles published here but due to the Covid-19, I am unemployed and my budget does not facilitate any extra to donate….keep up the good work….thank you
I’m in the same boat as R. Dorie, I cannot donate at this time and I also agree with JJ Johnson Smith: why can’t Biden and all his cohorts ruining our America not be impeached?
The reason why they can’t be impeached at this time Dolie is because impeachment charges are brought by the House and the House is currently controlled by the Dem’s so any charges of Impeachment against Biden or Harris would be shot down by the Dem’s
So exactly WHAT are we waiting for? These people need to be Impeached, one by one, month by month, until the poison is drained from the government boil. This administration is an unprecedented Circus of Clowns and Fools that are a serious threat to the entire World. There are NO options but to hold them all accountable for their crimes and Violations of our Constitution and move on.
Unfortunately, senators and representatives cannot be impeached. They must be DEFEATED at the ballot box. This means we must insure that the elections are HONEST!
This is the worst administration in our history. I doubt if Biden even knows what’s going on. I’m sure Harris is cackling, waiting in the wings.
And Pelosi is also cackling like the witch she is!!! God Bless America!!! We want Trump back!!!!
Only 4 debacles? Count again, just don’t take away someone’s teleprompter they would be lost.
I am in my 50’s and get carded to buy alcohol, yet I can vote with out being carded, huh?
Since Delta Air is against new GA voting law, I guess I should be able to fly that airline with out being carded.
Delta, Coke and MLB are dead to me.
Government efficiency is “Biden” its time till the next POTUS election. There is no way in sanity that Hiden Joe Biden will have the majority of his Commune Party sidin’ with his future nomination. But if the election process isn’t cleaned up …. well there is no telling what misfit Dumbocrat will be running.
I still don’t understand why we have to sit down and take all their unconstitutional bs. Will any of these tyrants ever be held accountable
Nope. Oops! No, if they are Democrats.
It is all starting to bite them in the rear. Coming back to haunt them! Good! Now, more and more are seeing what actually took place and is taking place!!
What a great compilation of facts in a short article.
It exemplifies the failed communist, anti American democrats perfectly.
These self serving hypocrites are a scourge on Our Great Country.
2022 is Our time to refute ALL of this failed ideology and anti freedom rhetoric!
We the People MUST take the Senate and the House back and SAVE America from the democrat party and the traitors within it.
In God We Trust
Better think about getting rid of their regime as well. Antifa and BLM was not formed to just go away when the socialists are voted out of office. They were trained to fight their enemy and anyone who doesn’t fit their ideology is their enemy. Almost every major company and brand of product on the market are donors to these organizations
You’re 100% on with these corporations who fall in line ,with a goal of $$$$ from Washington, slapping Citizens in the face who used to buy their products.
ALL of them MUST be boycotted for bowing to the communist democrats.
Their greed should be met with ZERO support from America’s real Citizens.
I would suggest one serious focus at a time, even though there’s no harm in resisting all of them. Let’s focus on Coca Cola first, as people of every political stripe seem to use their products. And don’t rush to Pepsi which also backs this “woke” nonsense. After Coke is hit hard enough to make financial news, go to Delta. The “almighty dollar” seems to be our only card-up-the-sleeve at the moment.
If the FBI investigated these groups and their finances as they did the January 6th perpetrators, BLM and Antifa would be nonexistent.
Bad news for the Democrats is good news for America
good to hear fundraising is going good for reps and also that many returned the witch’s money! HOORAAAH
This was their plan and the reason they picked this President and Vice-President ticket and Rigged the election. Just like under Obama mass shootings and encounters with police jumped. They can point the finger at Biden then remove him appoint Harris as President and move Pelosi to VP which will then start their official transition of turning America to a Socialist State. They just needed demented Biden to get the ball rolling which again is why they went to such elaborate lengths to rig the election. Everything that is happening was planned from the beginning and is only going to get worse.
It is my hope that the pursuit of Hunter Biden will continue with all speed. No matter who he is, his actions and history are shameful at best, and criminal at worst. If any of our Washington “leaders” are willing to take this on, it will be very troublesome for them, even politically dangerous, but sometimes you have GOT TO DO THE RIGHT THING, no matter the personal cost. We have enough graft, lies, double-dealing and wrong-doing to last a thousand years on the nation’s plate already. Time to show some guts and get the job done.
When things start looking bad for the Demons they attack any and all conservatives like our Governor and congressmen. Tell enough lies and some will start to believe them, look at Hitler!
Clearly, Biden and his pals are not up to the task. He just announced plans to remove all troops from Afghanistan by 9/11…another nightmare about to happen.
