Abysmal Jobs Report is Latest Blow to Embattled Biden Administration

When the placeholder President proves to be completely ineffectual, the Democrats have no one to blame but themselves.

It is beginning to look like the nation at large is losing confidence in the Biden administration, but maybe we should have seen it coming.

Biden was always just a stop-gap for the Democratic Party.  He was the guy that they thought they could get elected over Donald Trump, and they sold the nation on the gaffe-prone DC elitist by suggesting that the left just needed to get it over with.

So, when the placeholder President proves to be completely ineffectual, the Democrats have no one to blame but themselves.

And there is plenty of blame to go around this week.

The U.S. economy added 194,000 jobs in September and the unemployment rate fell by 0.4 percent to 4.8 percent, Labor Department reported Friday.

The September numbers are even worse than the disastrous report from August, showing only 235,000 jobs created. (August’s reported gains were revised up, however, from 235,000 to 366,000.)

The sluggish pace of jobs created surprised experts again, as they predicted about 500,000 jobs created, but the economy fell short again.

This was a shocker for many in the administration, who had been predicting that the end of COVID-enhanced unemployment benefits was going to spur a return to the workplace for many.

The ever-larger list of failures of the Biden presidency has contributed to the Commander in Chief’s sinking approval ratings of late, with Sleepy Joe sitting well below the halfway mark in that regard.

Biden Busted! POTUS Blows Off DC Mask Mandate at High End Restaurant

Not a good look for the guy who keep pushing the mandates.

Published

Throughout American history, (and certainly throughout this infernal coronavirus pandemic), there has been a great deal of talk about our elected officials and just how little they seem to care for the rules that they themselves profess to find important.

In many cases over the last year, we have witnessed Democratic politicians flouting the rules surrounding the coronavirus pandemic, often accompanied by the old anecdote about “rules for thee, but not for me”.  This ethos was exemplified by Nancy Pelosi, of course, who was seen on CCTV having her hair done inside of a California salon despite local ordinances prohibiting any customers to be inside the building at all.

Now, in a similarly-hypocritical situation, President Joe Biden has been spotted ignoring the DC mask mandate while dining at an ultra-posh restaurant in Georgetown.

White House Press Secretary Jan Psaki didn’t have much of a response when questioned about the poor behavior. 

During her daily press briefing, Psaki was asked by Fox News’ Peter Doocy to address a video showing Biden and first lady Jill Biden walking through a high-end Georgetown restaurant without masks on Saturday, violating Washington, D.C.’s indoor mask mandate.

“There is a mask requirement inside D.C. restaurants,” Doocy said, “yet President Biden and the first lady were not wearing masks while walking around a D.C. restaurant on Saturday. Why?”

Psaki responded by incorrectly claiming the controversy centered around a photo, not a video, and she said the Bidens were walking out of the restaurant, not through it.

Then came a tense exchange.

“Well, I think what we are referring to is a photo of them walking out of a restaurant after they had eaten, masks in hand, where they had not had put them back on yet,” Psaki said.

“So I would say, of course, there are moments when we all don’t put masks back on as quickly as we should,” she continued. “But I don’t think we should lose the forest through the trees here in that our objective here is to get more people vaccinated, make sure that that schools and companies around the country can put in place requirements to save more lives and keep people safer and not overly focus on moments in time that don’t reflect overarching policy.”

Doocy pushed back, saying the Bidens were clearly filmed walking through the restaurant, indoors, without masks on, but Psaki refused to elaborate.

“There is a caveat for people under 2 or people who are actively eating or drinking,” Doocy said. “So I’m just curious why the president was doing this.”

“I think I just addressed it, Peter,” Psaki responded.

Biden has been adamant about both mask and vaccine mandates of late, and has faced a great deal of pushback on account of his incessant promotion of such guidelines.

Trump Boasts He Wouldn’t Need Mandates to Convince Americans to Get Vaccine

BOOM!

Published

on

One of the most heated arguments that we have in America today has to do with whether to not the federal government has any right to tell us what to put into our bodies.

Sure, they already seem to have some ideas on this, having decided when we are old enough to drink alcohol or smoke a cigarette while also completely inhibiting our ability to partake in other, more dangerous fare.

But when it comes to medical decisions, there are a great many Americans who’ve decided that this is a line too far, specifically in the case of COVID-19 vaccine mandates.

Former President Donald Trump, who appears very much to be pro-vaccine, still isn’t pro-mandate, and he has a good reason why.

“I wouldn’t say to anybody, ‘You have to.’ But I would sell it. Look, I’m very proud of what we did with the vaccines,” Trump told political news host Bill O’Reilly in an interview that will air at 8 p.m. Monday on The First TV.

“It was supposed to take five years and they said it wasn’t going to work. I did three vaccines in less than nine months and they do work, they work really well.”

And then:

Trump added: “I would convince people, take it. I don’t want to push it … When I was president, there was no talk about mandates or anything. Everybody wanted the vaccine. Now a lot of people don’t want it.”

President Joe Biden has taken a far more terse and tyrannical tone in regard to involution mandates, suggesting at one point that “Our patience is wearing thin, and your refusal has cost all of us.”
