Biden’s Shameless Demagoguery

First, half of America – by voting record – is slammed as “enemies of the people,” a Soviet phrase. Then, Biden authorizes a political FBI raid on Trump for mishandling documents – which Biden did in spades. Now, Republicans are demonized for oversight and concern about the national debt. Shameless demagoguery is hard to hear, but what else would you call it?

Last week, the White House Press Secretary – hard to listen to – did it again. Like Biden, Harris, and half the team, she just stood up and lied, attacked the integrity of questioners, and left.

At a time when the nation faces an unprecedented constellation of threats, from China, Russia, North Korea, and Iran to inflation, overregulation, and public safety – from a tortured and fake remake of the nation’s history and culture to failed military recruiting – we get more lies.

The pebble that tipped the balance – for this observer – was a press conference conducted by the woke spokeswoman in fuchsia, Ms. Karine Jean-Pierre, invariably displaying a Harris-like unapologetic arrogance, stunning ignorance, adolescent prickliness, and personal pique.

No sooner had Biden’s domestic policy advisor Ms. Rice resigned and Biden issued a two-dimensional video announcing his intent to become the nation’s oldest, most muffled, shuffling chief executive for a second full term, then Ms. Jean-Pierre appeared at the podium.

Like one of Edgar Bergen’s famous handheld puppets, or a well-coiffed character from some B-comedy, she proceeded to dismiss all meaningful questions, disparage and avoid eye contact with serious reporters, demean them with “perfectly clear” nothingness, playing poorly a role it takes not much talent to play well.

But the kicker was the way she decided to slide into la-la land on national television. She first asserted the nation’s $31 trillion dollar debt is not the president’s problem, then lectured the Republican House to do their “constitutional duty” and raise the “debt limit” – which is meant to hold the national debt down.

To this she added other la-la chapters. She asserted any discussion of reducing the nation’s debt, which has rocketed trillions since Biden took office, has nothing to do with the debt ceiling – so the president will not discuss them together.

In for a dime, in for a dollar, she asserted any discussion of containing federal spending – with accelerating interest – is off the table. Moreover, if the debt ceiling is not raised without conditions, she said – with characteristic subtly – the “Republicans will crash the economy.”

As if competing with Hollywood for top fiction honors, the White House that opened borders, pushed child trafficking, made drug cartels rich, fails to hold China or Mexico accountable, and has allowed 100,000 kids to die of overdoses – plus defunded police – blamed this on the GOP.

In what media called “bizzarro” assertions, she said: “It’s clear that the Speaker’s bill breaks House Republicans’ commitment to America,” since “in the run-up to the 2022 election, House Republicans promised to put cops on the beat,” yet now “they’re fighting to put fentanyl on the street by defunding Border Patrol.” Really?

To this, she added with breathless enthusiasm, the “only things House Republicans are committed to giving to Americans are increased crime, lower economic growth and more manufacturing jobs sent back to China.” Indeed.

While social media users mocked the childish “gaslighting,” one has to remember this is a White House spokesperson, someone speaking for the President of the United States – to the world.

Lying with agility, even practiced fluidity, she said the Republican House Speaker’s “position is that, unless the president and the Senate agree to that job-killing, cost-increasing, anti-farm, anti-health care, anti-education agenda, they’re going to default and crash the economy.”

This kind of mindless blather is mind numbing. It insults reporters and average Americans as much as the GOP, and is probably why White House security collects not just cell phones, but tomatoes and eggs before entry into the press room.

Worst part of these bundled, compound sentences packed with lies is when the other shoe falls, and a priceless pretense is made to reason, as if listeners were idiots. This is called demagoguery.

What did the president’s esteemed spokeswoman next have to say? Well, she put us right. “That’s not just unreasonable, but it’s also incredibly dangerous …Instead of playing these games, they should avoid default.” Hmmm, right.

Truth is this White House is so out of touch with America that polls show most Americans think the nation is wildly off track, do not believe Biden anymore, and public trust is in freefall.

Whether you are a Democrat, Republican, Independent, Libertarian, or just another fiercely independent contrarian – this display was a disgrace, unworthy of the White House podium, another example of Biden’s commodium, a rolling comedy of errors, folly on a global scale.

Does any of this make America feel comfortable? No. Does it inspire confidence that America’s borders, health, growth, debt, inflation, energy, or security are well managed, justify another term? Well, you tell me.

This is the stuff nightmares are made of, to paraphrase an old white guy. This kind of nonsense from the Biden team makes average people shiver, wonder, worry, and looks disconnected.

But … that is what shameless demagoguery always look like – it is rude, crude, and accusatory, empty, disheartening, and fundamentally untrue. Then, again, what is new?

OMG!!! I am to the point that I can’t stand Democrats in general!! So much lying!! Always catering to the deviates and the criminals of our society!! Democrats have no morals or ethics left; they have sold out to every evil on the planet at our expense!!! We won’t survive another Democrat presidency if we survive what’s left of this term for Biden!!

How do you negotiate or talk to extreme marxists like biden, KJP or the rest of the liars in Biden administration? I will be very interested to see the vindictive bullying by extreme marxists against the republicans in that meeting Biden called for next week.

Take the beam (log) from your eye before you take the speck from the other guy’s eye. I cannot judge because it is not my task to do so; BUT there must be a log jam in Washington DC. No accountability and the buck sure doesn’t stop there with the leader in charge.

Reporters should call them out using FACTS ! The TRUTH needs to be Proven so they can’t argue or change the subject during press conferences!

It can’t be too much longer and all of us, Christians, will be gone. There will be nothing but a pile of clothes where we once were. The ones left in charge will be saying that aliens took us. Notice how aliens have become a current topic of concern for them. It’s interesting how they only took Christians. Never cease praying for the lost to come to accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.

Dear Mr. Charles: I have to commend you on another fantasic and well written article. I know that when I spent 1991-92 in the soviet union and the middle east working in Health Care lying was the only way these “marxist” idiots could speak. I was so lied to many times. I really did try to warn people that this sort of thing would happen in this country but it all fell on deaf ears. My husband who has worked hardd all his lifehas suffered more atn the hands of these “useless” demonrats. I am going to try and rid myself of anything that was given to me or I purchased while I was there. It just reminds me of all the pain I went through. Thank you for writing another so timely article. Carol

I’m an older, White Republican, and with people like her, I will always be! Can’t believe she is so like Biden/Harris – a total radical demorat! Doesn’t she listen to the majority of Blacks who have learned to despise Biden/Harris ??? – and will probably vote for Trump who loved ALL people, no matter their color, who fought for ALL people to be successful?!

Well, there you have it. Just another clown princess in the Biden administration’s sh*t show freak circus! One would definitely have a more meaningful conversation with a deaf mute than is possible with this Woke Joke (Gee! Strange how that rhymes! Wonder if the latter word states a fundamental fact defining the former word! Yep, most definitely!)

What we need now is a foolproof way of controlling the vote. I see DNA as the best source of accuracy in tabulations. It would be programmed to one vote per person. When tabulated, all repeats of DNA voting would be disqualified. It’s a start. At least a damn sure way of stopping the left and its hedious record of deception, spending, and march toward a historic power grab toward socialism.

Saint-Pierre is getting as rude & insulting to the News Media as Trump was at his press briefings. This is totally wrong & is not helping to unite this nation. They should answer the tough questions in a professional manner instead of being a bully.

If you’ve ever visited Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty, you would see that immigrants coming here had to have a physical exam (including turning their eyelids inside out!) checking for diseases, they had to have relations here, some money with them, and some type of job prospect. How did that morph to welcoming criminals, international terrorists, and drug cartels with free transportation anywhere they wish to go, a free cell phone, free clothes, driving and voting privileges, free concierge services at fancy hotels, as well as free medical care and education? If all the fringe benefits were discontinued our country wouldn’t look so appealing. There would be billions of dollars saved that could perhaps help our country’s military spouse survivors and families lead better lives. They’re not privy to the benefits the illegals are getting now. Are they appearing for their court dates? Of course not, and no one knows where to find them, or even who they are. We could chop those benefits right off which would surely help our budget situation.
