Joe Biden’s Left-Wing Start

Joe Biden is off to the most left-wing start of any Democratic president in recent memory.

The dulcet tones of Biden’s inaugural address already seem an artifact of a bygone era. Republicans will hammer him for the rest of his presidency for failing to deliver on his unifying message, but the fact is that Biden is governing as he promised — further to the left of his own record, further to the left of Barack Obama, and further to the left of any Democrat who made his career prior to the ascendency of the cultural left.

It’s not new for Democrat presidents to want to tax, spend, and regulate, even if Biden seeks to do more of all three than his immediate predecessors did. Biden layers on top of this a cultural agenda that represents a new dimension of radicalism that would be alien and baffling to past Democrats, who may have wanted to extend the New Deal but never sought to transcend the gender binary.

Biden has proved willing, too, to go it alone via rapid-fire, unilateral executive actions.

If Lyndon Johnson gave us the Great Society, he came to office seeking to fulfill the legacy of his martyred predecessor, which included passing a tax cut. Once elected in his own right in 1964, Johnson embarked on a spate of federal activism that no subsequent Democrat has matched, although Johnson largely enacted his priorities the old-fashioned way, by passing bills through Congress, and operated in a much more culturally conservative country and party.

Jimmy Carter, who ran as a Southern moderate and stumbled out of the gate, doesn’t really rate.

Bill Clinton and Barack Obama were both ambitious, but they also cared about the budget deficit and allowed it to restrain their agenda in a way that the Biden Democrats now totally reject.

If Clinton pushed the envelope on health care (ultimately getting nowhere), the signature economic initiative of his early administration was a deficit-reduction measure. Obama passed a blowout spending stimulus bill in his first months, although the imperative not to allow it to exceed about $800 billion seems quaint in retrospect.

Biden is out of the box with a proposed $1.9 trillion relief bill that includes a $15-an-hour minimum wage that not too long ago was the pipe dream of his party’s socialist wing, as well as a massive bailout of states and localities. Biden campaigned on a $4 trillion tax increase that one sympathetic observer has said would be “one of the largest wealth transfers in American history.” Meanwhile, he’s filling positions beneath the cabinet level with progressives with a mandate to increase regulation across the board.

All of this is augmented by new progressive causes that were just beginning to get a foothold back in the Clinton and Obama years.

Isn’t there something that Congress can do to “override” those executive orders?

Biden is the ultimate “Empty suit”. His senile dementia has reached the point where he can’t even read the notes written for him coherently…and when he goes OFF script…not reading the teleprompter, his handwritten notes or the words coming to him in his earbud…Katie bar the door! No telling WHAT will come out of his mouth. He’s not in charge…his radical left-wing handlers are. We have a man in the Presidency who is mentally incapable of doing the job. Once they use “Senile Ole Joe” to get their “cabinet” choices in…Harris (who is constitutionally ineligible for her current position, let alone as President) will “25th” him….He’s being treated like a child…from his “Office of the President-Elect” (No such office) to having to be told which way to leave the stage. IF there WERE NO law violations, illegal voting, tampered or inaccurate machines, etc. then the Dems are eviler, dumber, and hate our Republic and Constitution than anyone thought.

All of this while ‘vetting’ our servicemembers to see if they are conservative. So much for any advancement in the military for a Christian conservative. Any conservative is now going to be (as Pelosi says) an enemy of the state – traitor. And of course once that label is on our young troops – their 2d amendment rights will be nil. America needs to wake up – resist or submit and cower.

To think this is the best America had to offer out of of 328 million population as leader of the free world. God help us. A low self esteem individual driven driven by power and greed. 48 years in DC and still trying to get it right! DC one big club and we ain’t in it but yet our tax dollars fund the club so they can use the very tax monies we send to stay in power and increase their wealth at our expense as they pander to special interest groups.

With Biden’s obvious deficiency in his mental faculties, what we are seeing is his communistic handlers guiding him in signing all these EOs, and pushing liberty killing legislation like H.1/S.1.
He is a vapid drooling tool, being used to push our nation down a long dark road of ruin. Comrade Kruschev was right back in the 1960s, telling us we would fall to communism by sliwly embracing it from within, not by outside action.

In 4 years under the Biden Administration there won’t be an America anymore. The rights of the people will no longer exist. They had a president that was for the people but everyone hated him because he wasn’t one of them. And they still hate him to try and impeach him when he is a civilian when in all my years I have never heard it done before. So it is going to surely be a bumpy ride to mid-term elections and if the people don’t get people in there that are for the country then this country is lost.

This is from the Washington Times, May 2020. Of course they were directing it at another president.
“Orders are not laws.
They should be challenged by the people. They should be held to constitutional muster. They should be challenged and debated and fought over because they threaten the very foundation of America’s free society.
America is not a kingdom but rather a system of limited government where rule of law, meaning, the Constitution, guides — not mob mentality, or worse, fear — and public servants are just that: beholden to the citizenry.”

Biden is really doing what he is told and appeasing the radical left. He is led, he cannot lead. Unity has two meanings, one for the campaign, which was to bring then nation together, “Soul of the Nation” regardless of political affiliation . I’m sure it brought him thousands of votes. The second meaning, unit and conformity are synonymous, here are my policies conform and belong. There will be no partison participation in he Biden Adminstration.

What’s really sad in my opinion is that every White person in America is being called names like white power, (racist), white privilege. I don’t know about the rest of you people but I worked hard all my life. I have worked with and for all sorts of different people, it didn’t matter what color or where they came from. I respected their beliefs and hoped they respected my beliefs. This started twelve years ago. Everything that the Obama administration was criticized for was racist. The race card was played threw out his eight years in office. The Democrats saw this and have been using this tactic ever since. All I want is for people to get along with one and the other. I saw what I thought was real progress among all people not looking at their color of skin or what faith they believed in, but what they were about. Then all of a sudden everything became about race and hate. As a ( person )of religion, I hate to see the death of our younger people, doesn’t matter what color they are. Black, Brown, White whatever nationality you might be. Yes if we can help stop the unnecessary deaths then we should, but the people in power need to look at how they are handling this growing problem. You can’t just defund the police and expect the problem to go away. Well, I have said enough for today. WE the People need to stick together. God help our Nation.

These socialist democrats demean all who sacrificed for Our Great Country….very sad for America.
This ilk is exactly what career politicians and elite establishment of Washignton are,no surprise. Their self serving,total disdain for Citizens,greedy,immoral ,failures ,who think they know best.
While they pretend to be important they violate Our Constitution by attempting to add the cesspool of washington dc as a state!
Wake up America…in 2 years We the People must throw them out of Congress, and begin the process if impeaching useless biden and communist harris for REAL crimes against America.
Not the lies and dishonesty these traitors tried to cast upon Our Great President Trump!

This is really getting old. We are great at getting on here and on other websites and complaining.
Do we really think that sending emails makes a difference ? Nothing will happen until we do something. Writing emails accomplishes nothing. Lets stop this and do something. While we were sending these meaningless emails last year, the dims were rigging the election. They were DOING.

At what point did the Trump administration say, “We don’t have an answer we’ll circle back”??? Not once ever !!! Not only does the Harris/Biden administration not have a plan, they are dependent on the corrupt media to provide a smokescreen for their incompetence. The future of America depends on standing up and fighting back.

Without a doubt the most effective weapon the Nazi’s and communists have developed is character assassination. You don’t need proof or evidence all that is required is to control the source of the information, (ie the media” and you can plant doubt and misinformation and count on a certain amount of the simple minded to accept without question the deception. The democrats are the “pied piper” that are leading the lemmings to the cliff.

I still can’t wrap my head around how we have come to this terrible time? We all know there were tons of evidence confirming voter fraud and illegal ballets, we all know President Trump won in a landslide. So please tell me why has nothing been done to correct this? China joe is killing our Republic and doing it quickly. We the people are suppressed, censored, locked down, and masked up! I am very pissed at the Republicans in office for sticking their tails between their legs and letting the dems have at destroying our country. We had a great President for the people and his own party would not stand with him or us. I for one will not vote for any of these rinos again nor will I support them. Of course won’t make a difference with the rigged elections. Plus I and my family will never support company’s who have shut out goods from people who had the courage and conviction to support President Trump politics and business need to be a separate thing. People please wake up before it is too late and we are farther down the rabbit hole to every see the light again!

I don’t think it’s not that we don’t get it. You would have to be dumb, blind and deaf not to know what’s going on. We are just like the Germans when Hitler took over. He did exactly what’s going on in America. Germans followed him like sheep to the slaughter and then the Jews were slaughtered. We need a leader. Not a politician. Someone who is rich, well respected and cannot be hindered by the Socialist threats. We need to bombard our representives via email and phone calls to let them know where we stand. If millions of people did this they would take notice but to do that we need a leader.

America, has been done,
Since what the sixties had begun.
Atheistic worldview did begin,
Relative truth and no longer sin.
The Bible taken out of the schools,
So-called science and evolution rules.
Four generations of young have been taught,
Unrestrained freedom and the money you’ve got!
American history does now scream,
Riches are not the American dream!
Even if young and then had to rent,
Faith, family and contentment.
Godless America, with it’s humanist worldview,
History erased and rewritten anew!
Communist atheism infiltrated,
The Pilgrims and Founders are now hated!
Unless we “repent”and quickly learn
life, liberty on paper will quickly burn!
Unless the young have the Bible in the schools,
We’ll continue to be judged by the God who rules!
We must read and learn about history past,
Or this pagan America, will not last!

All the chaos and evil in this world can be blamed on mankind himself. When mankind rejected the Lord GOD as his God, King, Master and Creator, The Lord GOD let mankind have what he desired -self rule. We, each and every one of us, believes he/she knows what is best for him/herself. Lol! That’s the biggest and most deceiving lie of all! There is only one GOD! That is Truth and that Truth has been proven and “fact-checked” by Christ Jesus when He came down here the first time. Only Jesus can save us from ourselves, redeem us, and deliver us to The Father. This is promised to us by GOD, who is the only righteous and eternal promise creator and fulfiller of ALL!
Abba, I pray and beg that You soften our hearts, strengthen our minds and open our eyes to see and know that You are God! I pray this in Your Name, Jesus! Thank You for creating me for this moment in time to declare Your glory and LOVE! Hallelujah! Maranatha! Amen.

Yet another article about how Biden must be reined in and held accountable by Republicans in Congress. I guess we’re going to be treated to a fresh article like this each and every day for the next four years. Elections have consequences. Even the ones that are “won” (stolen) through fraud an manipulation of ballots to achieve the desired outcome.

Yes, we all know that Biden is enacting policy changes and much more that will damage this country for a very long time, but the Republicans in Congress, with McConnell and McCarthy in charge, are not going to do much of anything. They are NOT fighters. They never have been. So to expect that either one will rally the Republicans in Congress to fight on a daily basis is a non-starter. Both have essentially signaled as much by their actions to date. So prepare for a very bumpy and painful ride on the Socialism Express.

Biden must be reined in – if he continues, we will see another depression in this country. Now he is threatening the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court that if does not halt the conservative opinions coming out of the court that he will add more and more judges. Who died and made him God. A president, democratic or republican, has no right to blackmail the courts, which is what he is doing, When is he going to stop with the Executive Orders and take requests to congress? Of course, he is only President in name – actually Obama is in his 3rd term.

I will count on both Democrat & Republican legislators to start reining in Biden by using the powers vested in Congress. EOs are not valid way to run this country & Trump is gone so Republicans must stand up for the American people that elected them & not fear from Trump actions.

Democrats want to increase our deficit until we can no longer afford to be an independent country. How lonh until Communist China, who is funding us, states they will no longer loan us monies unless we do this or that, or give them a portion of US lands etc. The American people have stated many times for Congress to reduce our deficit and none of the pols ever do so.
