Will The Mythical Suburban Mom Cost Joe Biden the Congress?

AMAC Exclusive – By Andrew Abbott

biden

Over the past few years, politic-watchers have heard endless theories on how the two parties should go about appealing to the mythical “suburban woman” who was allegedly key to Joe Biden’s electoral coalition and was ostensibly an Achilles’ Heel for Donald Trump.

Now heading into the midterm year, soccer moms and housewives promise to be critical once again. But as Democrats try to hold on to this key demographic, they may be running up against an uncomfortable reality: over the past year, Democrats’ policies have made these women’s lives worse, not better, on every front. Consider the life of the prototypical Suburban Mom in 2022.

Inflation is driving the price of everything from a gallon of milk to a new car through the roof

Under President Biden and the Democratic Congress, ordinary American families who saw record wage gains and a historically strong economy under President Trump have now suddenly had their financial security ripped out from under them by an anemic economic recovery from the pandemic and soaring inflation thanks to reckless government spending.

Suburban moms were promised an economic rebound; instead, it costs twice as much to fill up their minivans, and the mainstream media told them to ditch the Thanksgiving turkey last year to save money on skyrocketing grocery bills. Not only is mom paying more at the grocery store, but she also wasn’t able to get her kids the latest gaming console this Christmas because of supply chain problems that the Biden administration seems disinterested in solving.

New moms looking to upgrade from their beat-up sedan to a much safer SUV have also likely received a shock – prices for new cars are up nearly 10 percent, while prices for used cars are up nearly 40%. Both aren’t expected to decrease anytime soon. And they can forget about that half-acre lot on the corner – housing prices rose nearly 20% between March of 2020 and October of 2021, the largest such increase in 45 years and a trend that is only likely to accelerate in 2022.

The pandemic has gotten worse, not better, and now schools are threatening to close once again

Joe Biden ran for president on a simple promise: to end the pandemic, put the “adults” back in charge, and orchestrate a “return to normalcy.” The reality has been anything but, with more deaths from COVID-19 in 2021 than all of 2020. The country is now seeing nearly a million new cases a day, and public trust in the nation’s public health infrastructure is at an all-time low.

For suburban moms, this means that they are watching helplessly as not only their kids’ childhoods but their futures are being taken from them. Already forced to wear masks in school and eat lunch on the floor or in the rain due to “social distancing” rules, now kids may once again be forced to endure “online learning.” For an administration that was handed three vaccines, dozens of therapeutics, and the most robust testing infrastructure in the world from the previous administration, such a colossal failure is unlikely to sit well with the Moderate Suburban Mom.

The Left’s radical social agenda is turning children against one another

Another central promise of Joe Biden’s 2020 campaign was an easing of racial tensions after the violence that rocked the nation’s cities that summer.

Instead, Suburban Women are now seeing their children taught that “Whiteness” is a contract with the devil, America was founded to promote slavery, and that everything from Halloween to advanced math classes are examples of “systemic racism.”

For girl moms, their daughters’ sporting careers are now also being threatened by radical gender policy that allows biological males to compete against females on the same field. And forget about your daughter making the swim team at UPenn.

To top it all off, President Biden has weaponized the FBI against parents who dare to defy this new woke curriculum in schools. The left’s message to parents who push back? Stay out of our way, or we will blacklist you and your children and harass you at your home.

Rampant crime is making once-safe neighborhoods more dangerous

Suburban moms who were tired of seeing scenes of horrifying violence on the evening news were promised a great national healing under Democratic rule. Instead, violent crime, carjackings, and organized looting have soared across America. Shopping centers across America are being struck with the newest crime fad – “mass lootings” – just the latest devastating result of Democrats’ “reimagined” criminal justice policies. Joe Biden’s Open Borders policies don’t help either—as hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens with criminal records crossed our borders last year.

But the real worry for many a Suburban Mom is that crime has now made its way to once quiet suburbs, making the streets unsafe for their children. Carjackings and drive-by shootings are skyrocketing in suburban Chicago, while one suburban New York police chief said last year that “I’ve never seen the gun violence like it is.” Many suburban moms fled cities to escape exactly this sort of violence—but increasingly, there is nowhere else to go.

If Democrats do not rein in their extremists, they may soon find that many of the same Suburban Moms who helped put them in power will be the ones most eager to see them go in 2022.

And, don’t forget the threat of violence, rape and kidnapping (for trafficking) that Moms and Dads have to watch for. With so many violent pedos, rapists and murderers let out of jails and allowed across our borders (including the many UNVETTED muslim men whose “religion” allows them to kill, rape, behead, etc. young non-muslims), how are our children safe?

First of all, I find it hard to believe that suburban women voted for the senile evil old man occupying the White House. Second, these so called vaccines are not vaccines at all. A vaccine keeps a person from getting a disease. These shots actually allow people to get the disease without the symptoms. I think it’s a crime that this shot is being forced onto people who don’t want it for whatever personal reason they see fit. Remember, my body, my choice. So it’s ok to give people the choice to murder babies, but it’s not ok if they choose to get a disease that may or may not kill them. However, we can force a shot on them that could cause major health problems up to and including death. Cynical, diabolical, evil regime that cares nothing about human life or freedom

Not only will the ‘suburban mom’ cost Joe Biden the Congress, but anybody with half a brain and an ounce of sanity will cost Biden the Senate too. If you think that I have just implied that all Biden lovers do not have half a brain or an ounce of sanity —– you would be right.

I cannot abide Biden. I voted for Trump in 2016 and 2020 and will vote for him in 2024. But, millions of Americans will vote against Trump and, for the life of me, I cannot understand why. Why do they want tyranny over freedom, poverty over prosperity, violence over peace, and failure over success? Perhaps you are right.

The “suburban soccer mom” has only two choices, vote for freedom or socialist/marxism. Just like the rest of us. End of discussion.

I have to ask, where are the Suburban Dad’s? Fox has a mom’s panel. When NewsMax speaks to parents, they tend to speak the mothers.

This is part of the Democrat Socialist Communist Party’s dream: take dad out of the picture and the conversation.

Bring us back in. We still love our children and care for our families. Our thoughts and opinions might just interest you.

It is unfortunate that men have sort of allowed this to happen. Many have not stepped up to the plate, so as a result women have. Time for men to take their place, not over women, but along side them, working together as God intended.

Yes, we cannot allow the liberal left and cancel mindset to destroy sexual identity. God created man and woman and they BOTH have distinct rolls to play in the family.

The suburban working non-college educated moms ARE a political demographic force now. And they are fed up, especially with CRT and all the left indoctrination. They are the ones that moved the recent election in Virginia! Not only moms but African Americans, Hispanics, Latinos and even some democrats are fed up and moving to the GOP. There is a National Conservative Patriot Populist Movement freight train that is rolling down the tracks in our country! 2022&2024 elections are going to be a huge RED tsunami! WE WANT REPRESENTATION NOT DICTATORSHIP! THE PEOPLE ARE SOVEREIGN!

The entire guiding basis for the Democrap Party is a hidden agenda …. namely, convert the Nation’s Constitutional Democracy into a kingdom run by a Communist Party (the present misnomer called the Democrat Party). Remember …. the Democraps want to RULE the Nation …. not GOVERN according to the democratic tenets embraced and written in the Constitution.

The facts of the 2020 elections are being successfully hidden by the MSM. They want to prove they are the ones in control. The problem is, for them, that many people are getting turned onto internet talk shows. And their lies are being exposed.

  • Seems that a lot of phantom useful idiot Dems voted in the last POTUS election. If the heart and sole of modern day Americans is to insure, not only for themselves, honest Democratic future Constitutional governance, they will demand that new laws will be passed and enforced to prevent a rigged election in the future. Without honest secretly marked, non-rigged voter elections, the stalking of Communism will consume the governance of this Nation.

Traitor Joe’s administration (Where everything is for sale) and his party are done, unless they get to pull of another mega fraud but after 2020 I doubt that even David Copperfield could top the, in Joe’s own words, “…largest, and most comprehensive voter fraud organization in American history…” Probably the main reason why he is hard at work preventing our border to be controlled so that he can import a constituency, of illegals albeit, that will willingly vote for him “com’on man! legal, illegal,.. did you say I get a beagle?”

Just remember, the whole world will be watching this next election. It will be very hard to commit the fraud that they did last election. Not that they can’t pull it off but very hard.

The citizen public needs to get up-in-arms (not violent) and go after every level of government and every politician to come up with a Constitutional based voting system that is nearlly perfect as far as being a truly one-man-one-vote event and insures that (1) any and all votes privately cast are kept completely private as regards as to how the voter actually marked his vote; in other words, NO person can know or find out precisely and correctly how any voter actually voted. Sending unmarked blank votes out to prospective voters should be absolutely forbidden; and it follows that no vote can be given to a legal voter and marked outside the premises of the voting area. All votes should be marked and submitted in a designated voting area… period. Special areas should be set up to deal with voters who have physical issues that make the process unduly difficult for them., any special assistance must not violet the principal of keeping the vote cast 100% known only by the voter. In some areas, there should be more than one day scheduled for voting, and tight security should guard the locked premises when the poles are closed. And I do believe it is time for legal voters to receive (renewed every four years (and more often if the voter has a change in voting location). a voter ID card with a current photograph, full name, address, and SSN. When voters show up to voting sites, the administrators that distribute the blank vote should check the info on the ID Card and check for accuracy (both major parties should do this for every voter, including that the SSN is accurate when compared to a computer listing. Of course, any voting site should have a full and complete listing of all voter eligible to vote in that location . And the Democrats will still find some few ways to do a little rigging, but … a dog has fleas and Democrats cheat by rigging elections.

Oh…. one additional thing … any person caught trying should be arrested for fraud and given a mandatory minimum sentence and/or at least a three digit dollar number fine if convicted. ELECTION RIGGING HAS TO STOPPED …. IT KILLS THE NATION’S CONSTITUTIONAL DEMOCRACY.

Our form of government is a constitutional republic, not a democracy to ensure all states get a say in how this Union is run; hence the electoral college, house, and senate, and three separate branches of government.

That is what a Republic is, however the current authorities in power are doing their best to combine all the above into ONE DICTATORSHIP, with the people having no say. If not stopped, it will be the end of this nation.

Good point. But it does provide Democratic governance, contrary to the Communistic governance sought by the present Democraps, who believe a Communistic form of governance allows them, as a Party, to RULE the Nation. And I would be my bottom dollar that a huge majority of American citizens want no part of a Ruling governance.

The problem is, these Communist demons are not making themselves available to everyone due to their COVID restrictions. The only way we can get the real message out is to talk to people as in a group so they’d be less likely to attack as in a one on one. This country has wondered too far from God and if the people of this country will recognize that, I don’t know if we still have a chance to get back to being the God fearing people as in the past. We may have already had our last chance after 9/11. There are too many abhorrent things going on in our country right now…we’re like Sodom and Gomorrah all over again. People need to get back into their Holy Bibles, where all the answers are to this life. With the help of the Holy Spirit we can grasp what the LORD needs us to know, and how and when to do it. I believe this is what we need to focus our time on in these ‘Last Days!’ He is all that we truly have!
