A Single Leader Can Ruin a Nation for Half a Century or Longer

We are in for an exceedingly rough ride, with few options for redress.

Before January, 2025, the worst president in American history will assume office. Someone more manipulative than Lyndon Johnson, more inept than Jimmy Carter, more devious than Bill Clinton, more treasonous than Barack Obama, and more demented than Joe Biden. Kamala Harris will wreak more devastation on America than any previous president.

History has shown us that a single leader can destroy a nation for decades, if not far longer. Led by Vladimir Lenin, when the Bolsheviks seized control of Russia in 1917, who among the citizenry could have known that misery would last for 62 years? 

Daily Distress, Long-term Suffering

After Lenin’s second stroke in 1923 and subsequent death in 1924, an even greater level of misery ensued, brought on by the dictatorial, maniacal, homicidal Joseph Stalin. He rubbed out his domestic enemies, with even his relatives included, purposely starved as many as 7,000,000 Ukrainians from 1932 to 1933, and promulgated Cold War tensions that reverberated to the late 1980s… and, in part, have since resumed with Vladimir Putin.

Obviously, Adolph Hitler wreaked havoc on his nation, starting in 1933, and then on the world. After 12 years, Germany, Europe, and much of the globe was in shambles. Leopold II in Belgium, Mao Ze Dong in China, Benito Mussolini in Italy, Ideki Tojo in Japan, Kim Il-Sung in North Korea, Pol Pot in Cambodia, Yakubu Gowon in Nigeria, Jean Kambanda in Rwanda, Idi Amin Dada in Uganda, Janos Mahleiro Savimbi in Angola, the Castros in Cuba, and Hugo Chavez followed by Nicolas Maduro in Venezuela, deceived, diminished, and devastated their respective countries. 

One truly bad leader can alter the fate of a nation for the span of a lifetime, if not longer. Enter the Biden/Harris Administration. Are they maniacal or homicidal? Not really, but the damage that they’ve inflicted and will continue to inflict can last for a generation if, indeed, only for that short of a time span.

No Let Up After Biden

Biden will be in office for perhaps another few months, maybe a year or two. He can’t last longer than that. The damage he’s done in four months is highly visible. Consider our southern border, the rising crime rates, the warping of our education system, the encroachment of China and Russia, the number of jobs lost, the return of inflation, his middle East bungles, and the businesses folding up shop here and moving elsewhere.

After Biden goes, Kamala Harris will become the least qualified person in the history of the presidency to assume office. This includes Zachary Taylor, Franklin Pierce, Chester Arthur, and, yes, Harry Truman (at that time). She is an elitist, and a socialist, from head to toe. She understands precious little about budgets, productivity, labor, the GNP, energy production, the national debt, foreign relations, or immigration.

How can the least qualified person we could have as president elevate to that role? She severely and rightly criticized Biden during the 2019-20 Democrat primary debates. Over all, she was a disaster in the primaries, mustered microscopic levels of support, and mercifully dropped out. Harris generated no enthusiasm whatsoever from any quarter of Democrat constituents. Then, chosen by his handlers to be his running mate, she praised Biden to the high-hilt as if she had never spoken a word against him.

Yes, we could have been beset with Elizabeth Warren, Maxine Waters, or God forbid, Nancy Pelosi as the first female president. However, fate has dealt us Kamala Harris, and fate, indeed, can be cruel. 

The Shirker-in-Chief

In four months of the Biden/Harris Administration, she has avoided taking her assigned lead on the border situation, completely shirking the role. Harris deflects serious questions with aplomb, certainly more adeptly than the bumbling Biden. She is the epitome of the privileged class, playing the ‘woman of color’ card as needed. Her record in California and rise in West Coast politics speaks for itself; sleeping with Willie Brown to gain career favors while incarcerating black men at unprecedented levels. 

She is not two-faced; three or four faces is more like it. Each of them are unable to control her unprovoked laughter at inappropriate moments. When asked about the dilemma of working parents who have to continue to homeschool their children, she immediately burst out in laughter. Experts say that she likely suffers from pseudobulbar affect, but that doesn’t tell the whole story.

Fasten Your Safety Belt

We are in for an exceedingly rough ride, with few options for redress. By fate, perhaps, we’ll retake the House and Senate in 2022, hold the Supreme Court, and gain governorships and state legislatures. Until then, it’s a bare knuckles ride, down a slippery slope, in hazardous waters.

Biden Slammed by Ukraine Over Irresponsible Press Conference Comment

Well that didn’t go as planned.

Published

on

During Wednesday marathon-length press conference, Joe Biden accomplished a couple of quick things.

First, he managed to make a number of factually inaccurate statements that were so obvious that even CNN had to stop schilling for his administration long enough to call them out.

Then, he also stuck around for nearly 2 hours, which felt more like a pre-planned show of stamina than anything else.  (PR wins elections, after all).

And thirdly, he did an excellent job of angering Ukraine, just as Vladimir Putin appears ready to put his foot on their neck.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky publicly pushed back Thursday on US President Joe Biden’s comments that a “minor incursion” by Russia into Ukraine would prompt a lesser response than a full-scale invasion, in an implicit rebuke of Biden’s comments.

“We want to remind the great powers that there are no minor incursions and small nations,” Zelensky wrote on Twitter in an apparent response Biden’s remarks on Wednesday. “Just as there are no minor casualties and little grief from the loss of loved ones.”

So, what exactly did Biden say?

In his comments Wednesday, Biden suggested that a “minor incursion” could prompt a disagreement among NATO countries about how strongly to respond to Moscow.

“It’s one thing if it’s a minor incursion and we end up having to fight about what to do and not do, et cetera,” Biden said.

The press conference, (and the boneheaded commentary by Biden), came as Russian forces continued to amass near Ukraine, both on the Russian border and in Kremlin-ally Belarus.

Biden Talks 2024 Running Mate as Dems Look to Replace Him on Ticket

How oblivious can a President be?

Published

on

President Joe Biden, for perhaps the first time since he took office a year ago, is getting ahead of himself.

Our nation has largely found itself lambasting Sleepy Joe as one of the nation’s most reluctant leaders.  He was coerced into running for office in the first place, as the Democrats considered him the only solution for swaying midwestern moderates away from Donald Trump’s sometimes brash behavior. and he has governed very much like a man whose heart wasn’t in it to begin with.

This has led to no shortage of troubles for the Biden administration, all of which have been distilled down into some of the most abhorrent approval rating numbers in the modern era.  What’s more, there are a vast number of Democrats who recognized that he’ll be slaughtered in the 2024 election unless things change drastically, and many are openly suggesting that another candidate may be in order.

Despite this reality, Biden seems obliviously hellbent on having a rerun ticket in three years’ time.

President Biden said during a press briefing Wednesday that he expects Vice President Kamala Harris to be his running mate again in 2024 if he chooses to run, saying, “I think she’s doing a good job.”

And also:

Asked if he was satisfied with Harris’ work on voting rights after putting her in charge of the issue, and whether he would commit to making her his running mate in the next election if he runs, Biden said, “yes and yes.”

Asked to expand, Biden said, “there’s no need to. She’s going to be my running mate, number one. And number two, I did put her in charge. I think she’s doing a good job.”

Barring some catastrophic change in public opinion, perhaps former President and presumptive 2024 GOP candidate Donald Trump should go ahead and start picking out his cabinet.
