Biden Invokes ‘Santa Claus’ in Bizarre Supply Chain Commentary

This, while taking no responsibility whatsoever for the ever-worsening consumer crisis facing Americans.

It’s no secret that President Joe Biden has a way with words.  What is surprising is just which way he often chooses to go with his words.

This week was no different, as the Commander in Chief continues to struggle with criticisms of his handling of the ongoing supply chain crisis that threatens to leave the underside of many an American Christmas tree bare.

President Joe Biden tried to distance himself from supply chain disruptions this Christmas, telling Americans on Wednesday he was not responsible for any problems.

He then decided to bring Santa Claus into it for some reason.

“I can’t promise that every person will get every gift they want on time,” Biden said. “Only Santa Claus can keep that promise.”

Biden argued that shortages for some goods around Christmas were normal, citing the Cabbage Patch Kids doll shortage in the 1980s and also the shortage of Beanie Babies in past years.

But then the President simply downplayed the issues entirely, attempting to neutralize his critics.

“Here’s the deal. For the vast majority of the country, that’s not happening,” Biden said.

Then, in a statement that will surely make some CNBC pundits’ heads spin, the President suggested that the current rate of inflation was “natural”, and a byproduct of the global economic downturn caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

Biden Accepts Defeat; Rescinds Private Vaccine Mandate Entirely

This disastrous defeat is just another of the Biden administration’s massive public failures, and certainly won’t bode well for the President’s already-dicey reelection hopes.

It took just over two months for justice to prevail, but prevail it did.

US President Joe Biden’s highly controversial private business vaccine mandate has suffered its final defeat, and will be rescinded by the White House.

The Biden administration is formally withdrawing its vaccine and testing mandate for businesses, after the Supreme Court blocked the requirements earlier this month.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration will pull the rule for businesses effective Wednesday, Jan. 26, the agency said in a statement posted to its website Tuesday. The Supreme Court’s conservative majority, in a 6-3 decision, ruled that OSHA had exceeded its authority.

“Although Congress has indisputably given OSHA the power to regulate occupational dangers, it has not given that agency the power to regulate public health more broadly,” the court wrote in an unsigned opinion.

The move could help clear some court dockets as well.

The Biden administration is ending its legal battle over the mandate — at least for now. OSHA will ask the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit to dismiss all cases related to the mandate, according to a Labor Department spokesperson. The administration had faced dozens lawsuits from Republican-led states, private businesses, religious groups, and national trade associations. The 6th Circuit has jurisdiction over those cases.
