Joe Biden ran on a typical Dem platform and as usual the claim of a progressive president was a lie.
I was not a supporter of Biden for I saw what he was….one of those supposed ‘centrist’ that will do whatever they can to keep progress to a minimum and play that damn silly game of bi-partisanship.
With about a year before the midterms let us look at the so-called Biden agenda.
Since I have a degree in international relations let’s start there with the Biden agenda.
It has been nearly 70 years since the United States elected a president with the foreign policy and national security experience that rivaled Joe Biden’s. His only rival in this category, President Dwight D. Eisenhower, placed troglodytes in key positions such as the Dulles brothers (John Foster at State and Allen at the Central Intelligence Agency) and Vice President Richard Nixon, who were ideologically opposed to dealing diplomatically with the Soviet Union. As a result, Eisenhower missed a significant opportunity when the death of Joseph Stalin opened the door to possible negotiations with the new leadership in the Kremlin.
Not even Eisenhower had the experience that Biden accumulated over nearly 50 years in government that included 20 years on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee (12 of those years as chairman or ranking member) in addition to eight years in the White House as vice president. During the campaign of 2019-2020, Biden frequently cited his trips to more than 60 countries and his one-on-ones with more than 100 national heads of state. Biden privately boasted about his ability to dominate the national security bureaucracy, stressing that not even the “military will fuck with me.”
Yes he got out of Afghanistan but beyond that the agenda is the same agenda that we have had for the last 100 years…..foreign policy controlled by the M-IC.
Biden’s domestic agenda is weakening almost daily…..
The worst strike against Biden’s agenda is the Republican refusal, for the third time, to even debate the Freedom to Vote Act that’s intended to override the sinister 33 laws passed by 19 GOP-led states to suppress the voting of minorities. They generally cast ballots for Democrats. And this after Manchin watered down the proposed law to make it more palatable to Republicans.
“Look – hey look, it’s all about compromise,” Biden said at a CNN-sponsored town hall meeting last week.
Then there is more to the domestic side of the Biden agenda…..just how well has that panned out?
Voting Rights (2 bills)–failed
Paid Family Leave–failed
Lower Drug Prices–failed
There are other failures but the above are the most wide ranging for the people of this country.
So far I have seen nothing that would make me run out and vote for Biden….plus for Americans that actually work through the policies will find nothing positive in the Biden agenda.
Now the Dems must run for re-election, especially the House, and what do they have to run on?
I feel the Dem candidates in the mid-terms are so screwed…..2022 will not be a happy election (just my thought nothing scientific)…..
