The Truth Behind the Biden Administration’s “Confessions”

There are psychological and political theories about the compulsion to confess. The basic argument is that there is a human need, either consciously or subconsciously, to confess to bad acts. Everyday there’s a reason to wonder about why Biden and the Democrats remain obsessively committed to policies and plans that ruin people’s lives, crush the future, and spectacularly fail. But what if they weren’t “failures,” and to them thrilling successes and open confessions of their cancerous agenda?

The Biden administration’s idiotic, contradictory, and dangerous policies make a lot more sense if the goal is to train Americans to accept absurd micromanagement of our lives while simultaneously creating chaos in every sector of society. After all, if you can get people to accept crazy, nonsensical policy in the name of one crisis or another, you can get them to be grateful for only moderately crazy policies. In the left’s worldview, the more chaos there is, the more government is needed.

In the last few weeks, there have been remarkable examples of Biden’s upside-down, wrong is right, backtracking confessionals about their real agenda, for all Americans to see. First up: Joe Biden’s retreat last week on his biggest pander yet to the climate cult: “tailpipe emission” regulations designed to force auto manufacturers to focus on producing EVs instead of gas-powered vehicles.

But despite this being their policy superstar proving their fealty to the climate gods, Biden backtracked on their timeline, pushing it to several years later than originally promised. What happened? Automakers and labor unions were warning of jobs lost, the lack of infrastructure, and the fact that Americans—so far—haven’t piled into the dealerships looking for their expensive battery-operated 10-hour scooter.

Climate is the existential threat to humanity! Until it’s not. Biden’s team likely noticed that Trump is leading the incumbent president in the swing states, including Michigan, and is leading Biden with registered voters under 35, along with almost every other voter subgroup. None of this is a good sign for President Angry Forgetful Guy.

And then there’s the newest (and maybe dumbest) idea brought to us by New York City, where the ubiquitous emergency-for-the-planet demands humans banish laundry detergent pods. Yes, that’s right. We are told by Those Who Care the MostTM that detergent pods and laundry sheets contain “micro plastics” and must be stopped.

The New York Post reports, “The ‘Pods are Plastic Bill,’ introduced by City Councilman James Gennaro last week, would make it illegal to sell any pods and laundry sheets if they’re made with polyvinyl alcohol. Fines for selling the pods would start at $400, double for a second violation and top off at $1,200 for flouting the rules more than twice, if the bill becomes law.”

Really? This concern about our “health” comes from a city where marijuana shops beckon one-and-all to come on in, and recently approved private, home-grown marijuana plants. Since New York State legalized marijuana, most will attest it impossible to walk around New York City, be you local, tourist, man, woman, or child, without becoming an unwilling inhaler of the drug. It’s not Pig Pen from the Peanuts you ran into—it’s pot clouds everywhere. But now they tell us it’s Tide Pods and laundry sheets that are the direct threat to your health and a menace to the planet itself. Got it.

In all fairness, I do suppose you’ll want to be high when you’re doing the laundry with a bar of soap on a washboard in the alley.     

Speaking of drugs in the street, what else happens when there’s Democrat one-party rule, and the preferred constituent is a homeless unemployed drug addict? This next installment of What Were They Thinking comes to us from the beautiful state of Oregon. After being convinced by Democratic lawmakers that treating drug users as a health issue instead of a crime, Oregonians passed Measure 110 in 2021 doing just that. Many warned that the result would be a disaster. And it was.

US News and World Report tells us, “Oregon’s first-in-the-nation law that decriminalized the possession of small amounts of heroin, cocaine and other illicit drugs in favor of an emphasis on addiction treatment is facing strong headwinds in the progressive state after an explosion of public drug use fueled by the proliferation of fentanyl and a surge in deaths from opioids, including those of children… But estimates from the [CDC show] Oregon had the highest increase in synthetic opioid overdose fatalities when comparing 2019 and the 12-month period ending June 30, a 13-fold surge from 84 deaths to more than 1,100.”

In the face of this human carnage, one Democrat state senator argued, “It would be a mistake to overturn 110 right now because I think that would make us go backwards…”

Here’s a newsflash for that state senator: when you’re speeding toward a cliff, it’s best to stop and go back. The reticence to consider reversing bad policy is the confession that it was the idea itself that mattered—decriminalizing drugs in this case—without any consideration of the impact on individual human beings. Ironically, all done in the name of helping people.

This is the catastrophic problem with leftist ideological decision-making—the only thing that matters is pushing along the narrative. The leftist bureaucracy requires chaos and victims to excuse and explain their quest for bigger government and more power.

On one hand, a political party simultaneously lectures us about the dangerous emergency of climate change so we must banish gas-powered cars and gas stoves, (which by no coincidence would ensconce the government as the provider of all of our fuel for private movement), all in the name of health and safety.

When that same gang of politicians simultaneously scrambles to legalize drugs, while opening our southern border allowing mass casualty drugs like fentanyl, people of the terror watch list, and thugs from violent south and central American gangs to flow into this country, it is what they call in poker “a tell,” a behavior (a confession of sorts) revealing their goals and intentions. They don’t even attempt to hide the absurdity of their contradictions because that’s the point. That’s the training to which we are subjected.

There’s work to do in the meantime but thank goodness in November Americans can slam on the brakes, stop the maniacs driving us toward the cliff, and turn us around.

there is nothing that the dmeocrats will do or say in the next 9 months that is not designed to win the election. The student loan forgiveness is trying to buy votes. the change in border polices is trying to buy votes. that is who they are. completely corrupt.

Remember everything they are doing to trump they will do to you. It sound a little far fetched by you know it is true.

The open border is the most egregious and damaging policy of the last 3 years by Biden and his cohort of socialists. The elites in Washington believe in firm government control of all aspects of our lives and conceptualize the massive border invasion as the most effective way to fundamentally change America. By giving illegals food, housing, medical care, and education at taxpayer expense, the rest of America will wonder why they aren’t receiving the same benefits. Democrats will start making promises to bring all of those same benefits to EVERYONE and will claim to afford it by a massive increase in taxes of all the remaining productive and wealthy individuals. This is being engineering by the Barach Obama holdovers in Biden’s administration. Just another of BO’s “hope and change” promise.

I truly hope that this election will be an honest one, but I really do doubt it. We have not had an honest election since the 2016 coup taking over America’s government and it was allowed to stand. The 2020 election was one by zTrump by a land slide definitely.
The election year, Biden hid in his basement most of the time and when he did go out to speak to people, he would speak to little crowds of around 300 people so, while Trump was packing in hundreds of thousands of people filling stadiums and the parking lots outside weekly throughout the year. When Biden was named the winner of the so-called “election” no one can feel the shock and seething anger felt by the people. Those of us who were not educated by the professors and teachers who are far left oornon Christian, or both, learned about Goeble, Hitler, Stalin, Saul Alinsky and many others, and we can see the tenants of communism/ Marxism being enforced day-by-day in all of the policies Democrats shove down our throats. Even worse, they are now rewriting our country’s history through our TV shows, movies, our books and our textbooks and the news media.

I am hoping the next election will stop all of this destruction of America dead in its tracks. But I’m not holding my breath and I and I am too old and sickly to fight this.

Yes indeed. Every seeming disaster wrought by the treason party is in fact a thrilling success to them. Too many conservatives persist in the belief that dem initiatives are honestly mistaken blunders. “They’re incompetent “, we too often think. Well, the bolsheviks didnt err in liquidating their middle class. Our bolsheviks likewise are doing what their playbook calls for: seemingly inexplicable policies and laws that weaken the country. They’re desperately trying to erase several centuries of culture to bring about the fundamental transformation president obama promised.

Another article of TRUTH from Tammy Bruce.
Drugs, tens millions illegals getting taxpayer paid free-free-free, human trafficking, grooming our youth, insane bowing to degenerate groups (especially the mentally ill who think dressing differently/ingesting drugs/even lopping off body parts changes their gender), aiding and abetting our enemies, corrupt federal agencies, corrupt judges DAs governors, mayors, outrageous zero-accountability spending, executive orders defying courts and Congress. The CORRUPT dementia fake puppet takes orders from, and parrots, his string-puller, Commie Obamie and those who own him (Communists, blackmailer Zelensky with tons of dirt on *biden, and Globalist elitists spending $billions to destroy us!). Occasionally expletive TraitorJoe slips, telling the truth…forcing the White House expletives to spring into clean-up action. Our freedoms and opportunities Constitutional Republic is under attack from myriad traitors, it’s hanging by a thread. Fact: Voting D is accelerating the “fundamental transformation” destruction.

All these rules and regs are to depopulate America. Stalin and Hitler shot them or gassed them. Ole Joe by overdose and homelessness. Letting in millions and millions of illegals. Criminals amongst them to finish the rest of us. Take our jobs and take our money to support them. Suicide is at an all time high especially among our young people by mutilating them. Goal reached. And more and more evidence is coming out this is their plan. When has ole Joe ever mentioned our drug problem or the homeless. Or the many that are living in poverty in these inflationary times. He has never mentioned inflation exist. Oh yes shrinkflation. He is so far behind this has been going on for years. This is not new. It is more prevalent now. Plus he mentioned snack food you can do without snack food. What about butter and sugar and flour. The last two are a pound lighter for the same price. And with inflation the price rose some more. No the dems are busy to destroy America and they can only succeed if they break the people first. Especially the white race and using the black race to accomplish that.

Ronald Reagan once said, “The nine most terrifying words in the English language are I’m from the government and I’m here to help.” Biden and rest of the government keep proving Reagan right by “trying to help” us by coming up with these ridiculous policies that cause more damage tan they prevent. The government can help us BY STAYING OUT OF OUR LIVES.

Its rather unfortunate that I chose Oregon as my state in retirement, but, alas, family already here, etc. Shoulda gone to Idaho! I lived in CO, voted no on legal MJ..disaster. Moved to OR, voted no on all drug issues, disaster again. What has happened to common sense? Seriously makes me glad that I didn’t have children and that those left in my family are over 50. This world is NOT what I want to live in. Long live life in rural Oregon.

It amazes me that many people are only now catching on to what the Biden administration is all about. Yes he’s a stumbling bumbling old fool but his policies have always been from the very beginning destructive to America and designed with one focus of intent and that is the dismantling of America’s sovereignty.
He’s really a very evil man and a very useful tool for Obama and the people who run him as well.

They are completely in a highly toxic, negative, destructive mindset. People like that believe what they’re saying and doing is right and good; their minds, and actions are warped and I’d even say, evil. The Good Book tells us that in the “last days, evil will be seen as good, and good as evil.” Well, I guess we’re seeing it in real-time now, and the Bible was right!

Joe & Kamala are the perfect leaders for the democrats. What other group would follow a political party that has f up every thing they have ever touched. Every decision Joe has made is wrong. He is 100%. Who else could make that many wrong decisions. He has bankrupt the country, the auto industry, women’s sports, the border, the military, the family, Ukraine, the middle east, the housing market, the interest rate, The United States standing as the example to the free world, the U.S. dollar, our energy industry, coal, oil, natural gas, rare metals, college education, student loans, car dealers, commercial real estate, home builders, small businesses of all kinds. Food prices, taxes, housing prices, and home real estate taxes. He has given us electric cars that no one wants, and do not work. You have to admit that Joe Biden has accomplished more in his term than President Trump did in his. For a man his age he has changed the face of America more than any other president. Even Obama can’t hold a candle to Joe. The only thing Obama said that I believe is that you should never underestimate how bad Joe Biden could f things up.He was sure right on the money there. If we all live to put this administration in our rear view mirror it will be a new awakening for the country. Pray to God for President Trump to regain control of this country.

If Democrats wanted my vote 4 years after they elected Biden, they should have started 4 years ago with a totally different direction for the country!!! This green agenda of the radical left is something that probably is good for the country but go a little slower with your change!! We aren’t technologically or physically ready for all of this green energy all at once!!! They should have probably not elected a guy who already had so many corruption problems but since they did, why not try to clean up the corruption in Washington but instead, they tried to capitalized on it trying to bring more corruption into Washington!!! They never should have allowed the border to be opened nor should they have closed down all of the oil and gas industry issues that they did!!! They proved on their first day in office that they had so much hate for Donald Trump that they couldn’t see past that for the good of the country!!! All of the policies that Trump initiated that were actually good for the country were dismissed ceremonially simply because HE has passed them!!! This is petulant behavior and has done tremendous harm to our country because of their hate!!!

President Trump won, but Biden sits in the WH? It could happen again, if we don’t stop all the factors, which contributed to this:
Factors, such as, fixed ballot counting devices; lack of proper identity at the poll; permitting illegals to vote; ballot harvesting from illegals; millions of Chinese-made ballots dumped into ballot boxes (after the polls closed); Censorship by the MSM of anything positive pertaining to President Trump;’ and hiding anything negative about Biden. This was one of the worst elections in U.S. history.
Want a fair election? Get back to basics: In person voting with Identification; paper ballots; no vote-by mail; and same night results. It was done before and needs to be set up now.

Tammy is my favorite commentator. I’ve listened to her for years in LA and now on Fox. She always hits the target and this column is especially meaningful to those of us who cannot wait to get rid of Biden et al and the idiot Democrats who have absolutely ruined the Democrat Party. Goal:to start “fresh” with Donald Trump leading the parade to fix all the horrors of Biden Admin stupidity and its noxious policies.. Keep eyes wide open and fingers crossed along with some prayers and we can save our country!

It is unimaginable to me that good and decent people would vote for these far left politicians if they truly knew and understood what is really happening. The Biden crime family and their corrupt handlers are doing their best to finish what Obama started, which is to destroy the country as we have known it and turn it into another Marxist failure.
I hope that if Trump becomes the nominee, otherwise conservative voters, who don’t like Trump because of his personality, will look past that and consider the consequences of not voting for him. Other than the crooked voting, I believe that is what cost Trump the election in 2020. Now we’re all paying for it.

I would remind us all that the 2022 elections were supposed to be a lock.

We must resist the temptation to try to force our moral choices on other people.

It matters not how far ahead Trump is in the poles; the Democratic bosses in the big cities of the swing States will deliver them to Biden or whoever is the Democratic candidate. They can, on national TV, blatantly stuff the ballot boxes with fraudulent ballots for Democratic candidates, destroy Republican ballots, and switch Republican votes to Democratic votes. The public will do nothing beyond meekly accepting another stolen election and the imprisonment of any who object.
I don’t know why Republicans would object to legalizing drugs. They are eliminating future Democratic voters.

Democrat-run cities have been that way for decades yet are not the utpoian dreamscape of diversity, equity, or inclusion. Instead of prosperity, there’s poverty. Instead of educational enlightenment, there’s ignorance. And who bears the brunt of that failure? Minorities. Biden claimed you “ain’t black” if you didn’t vote for him (and only a Democrat could say that and get away with it!) in 2020; I say vote Democrat, you ain’t smart. How much failure does it take before that’s enough?

I sense confusion regarding the objectives of the Democratic Party and the other Far left “thinkers’ of our times. Their mantra is based on the Communist Manifesto and the preachings of Lenin and their ilk.. Their Political Platform of 2020 codified this.. They have followed this path very successfully in the past three years. To confuse them with people that believe in the tenants of the USA as defined in our Declaration of Independence, The Constitution and Bill of Rights is a gross mistake and misinterpretation of recent events.

Considering that Joe’s term is a rank failure in all possible ways, all I care about is the moment he gets the h— out of the White House and gives the keys to a patriot, Donald Trump. Truth be told, since Joe’s a traitor to the country, he should go direct;y to jail for high treason. Just his border policies which he owns lock stock and barrel are proof he has no regard for the security of Americans. That is sedition when you are president.

There is a HUGE difference between marijuana and heroine or cocaine. There are definitely medical uses for marijuana, and it really isn’t any different than people drinking alcohol. I can see why so many conservatives are leaning towards being independent. Most of what I hear from conservative Republicans is just as crazy as what I hear from the progressive Democrats.
Addiction is a mental health issue. Most drunks don’t get thrown into jail for months or years because they are an alcoholic. I’m not saying to decriminalize heroine, cocaine or other drugs. Yes, give them jail time, but at the same time, treat the mental health issue that is causing the addiction. It may seem impossible for anyone to break their addiction, but it can happen. It isn’t just about detoxing them, it is treating the mental health. Bring back inpatient mental health facilities. I personally know people who have successfully broken their addiction to drugs. I also personally know people that have lost their battle with addiction, that might still be with us today had they received the help they needed instead of jail time.

We always say the election is coming and things will change. How did that work the last time? What will change to their election antics this time? Seems too many voters just do not get the memo. They talk about the “orange bad man”; which tips us off they are not paying attention to these horrible policies and feeble mental state from the WH. Short of insurrection (and who wants that?) it is tough to see happy days ahead. The fix is in.

Tammy Bruce hit and analyzed every point (to which I can wholeheartedly agree), regarding the absurdity of the current Progressive, authoritarian agenda. Such clarion-call-clarity needs to be shouted by the town crier because the work-a-day world has been miserably failed/deceived/lied to by local newspapers & TV stations. Her synopsis well-describes the issues and suggests changes that can only be done by elected officials and media voices with enough influence to shift the vote of those in power. Thank you, Tammy.

Luckily, House Republicans passed the strongest border security bill in American history. Our border plan: ✅ Slashes illegal immigration, ✅ Resumes construction of The Wall, ✅ Ends catch-and-release, and ✅ Staffs up Border Patrol. But we’re facing a Democrat blockade:
❌ EVERY House Democrat voted against it, ❌ Chuck Schumer is STONEWALLING it in the Senate, and ❌ Joe Biden is threatening to VETO our bill the second it hits his desk.
