Biden Prepares The Nation

Since Vietnam the president finds the time to make a case for a war that the Pentagon wants…..Iraq comes to mind first…….

Last night Biden went on TV and made a speech that makes the case and prepares the nation for the next war……

In a press conference Wednesday to mark his one-year anniversary in office, President Biden touted his accomplishments, defended his record, and predicted Russia will invade Ukraine. Biden said he expects Russian President Vladimir Putin, who’s moved 100,000 troops to the border with Ukraine, to end the current standoff with some sort of action, the New York Times reports. “Do I think he’ll test the West, test the United States and NATO, as significantly as he can? Yes, I think he will,” Biden said. But the president said Putin would regret an invasion: “I think he will pay a serious and dear price for it.”

Biden has done the course now……Pentagon has told us this…..State has told us this….and the media has been working hard to promote this…..so it is only a matter of time before this thing blows up and we can have that war that the M-IC dearly desires.

Your Voting Rights

These duties of a citizen is under constant strain from the GOP….with restrictive voting programs…..now Biden is stepping forward…..with what could be a life changing situation as far as our voting life goes….

Pounding his fist for emphasis, President Biden challenged senators on Tuesday to “stand against voter suppression,” urging them to change Senate rules in order to pass voting rights legislation that Republicans are blocking from debate and votes. Biden told a crowd in Atlanta that he’d been having quiet conversations with senators for months over the two bills—a lack of progress that has brought his criticism from activists in his own party, the AP reports. “I’m tired of being quiet!” he shouted. “I will not yield. I will not flinch.” Biden on Tuesday also paid tribute to civil rights battles past—visiting Atlanta’s historic Ebenezer Baptist Church, where the late Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. once held forth from the pulpit. He stood quietly as Martin Luther King III placed a wreath outside at the crypt of King and his wife, Coretta Scott King.

With Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer setting next Monday’s Martin Luther King Jr. Day as a deadline to either pass voting legislation or consider revising the rules around the chamber’s filibuster blocking device, Biden is expected to evoke the memories of the Capitol riot in more forcefully aligning himself with the voting rights effort. Biden told his audience Tuesday: “The next few days, when these bills come to a vote, will mark a turning point in this nation. Will we choose democracy over autocracy, light over shadow, justice over injustice? I know where I stand.”

Biden promised: “I will defend your right to vote and our democracy against all enemies foreign, yes and domestic! And so the question is where will the institution of the United States Senate stand?”Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams, known for her untiring voting rights work, was not at the event. Aides said Abrams had a conflict but didn’t explain further, though she tweeted support for the president.

Current rules require 60 votes to advance most legislation—a threshold that Senate Democrats can’t meet alone because they only have a 50-50 majority with Vice President Kamala Harris to break ties. Republicans unanimously oppose the voting rights measures. Not all Democrats are on board with changing the filibuster rules. West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin threw cold water on the idea Tuesday, saying he believes any changes should be made with substantial Republican buy-in. And even if Democrats clear the obstacles to passage of the voting rights laws, it could be too late to counter widespread voting restrictions passed in 19 states following former Donald Trump’s 2020 loss and false claims that the election was stolen through voter fraud.

Promises….promises….great thoughts and words….but what is needed is action not idle promises.

06 January–The War Of Words

Yesterday we observed the day the insurrectionists stormed the Capitol….Uncle Joe made a speech commemorating the day and the retort from Donald the Orange was inevitable…..

President Biden spoke Thursday on the one-year anniversary of the riot at the Capitol and made clear he places the blame for that day squarely on his predecessor, though he never mentioned Donald Trump by name. Trump has responded with slams of his own. Highlights:

  • Biden: “For the first time in our history, a president not just lost an election, he tried to prevent the peaceful transfer of power as a violent mob breached the Capitol,” said the president, per the AP. “But they failed. … Democracy was attacked … [but] we the people prevailed.”
  • Biden: “We must be absolutely clear about what is true and what is a lie,” he said, per NBC News. “A former president of the United States of America has created and spread a web of lies about the 2020 election. He’s done so because he values power over principle, because he sees his own interest as more important than his country’s interest and America’s interest. He can’t accept he lost.”
  • Biden: “They didn’t come here out of patriotism or principle,” said the president, referring to the rioters, per the Washington Post. “They came here in rage—not in service of America, but rather in service of one man.”
  • Biden: The president accused Trump and his supporters of “trying to rewrite history” in his speech. “They want you to see Election Day as the day of insurrection and the riot that took place here on January 6th as a true expression of the will of the people Can you think of a more twisted way to look at this country, to look at America? I cannot.”
  • Trump: “Biden, who is destroying our Nation with insane policies of open Borders, corrupt Elections, disastrous energy policies, unconstitutional mandates, and devastating school closures, used my name today to try to further divide America,” Trump said in a statement. “This political theater is all just a distraction for the fact Biden has completely and totally failed.” He ticked off a number of issues, from the Afghan exit to rising inflation.
  • Trump: He called members of the House panel investigating the Jan. 6 riot “totally partisan political hacks” and said they should instead be investigating the “Big Lie” of the “rigged” election.
  • Trump: “The Democrats want to own this day of January 6th so they can stoke fears and divide America,” Trump said. “I say, let them have it because America sees through [their] lies and polarizations.”

Placing blame is all well and good but something needs to be done to prevent this sort of stupidity from ever happening again…..words are news making but will do little to stop this erosion of American way of life.

Conservatives In Progressive Clothing

As Congress slips out of DC they abandon policies to rush home to suck off the high dollar donors….so the country will come to a standstill for a couple of weeks.

Next year is an election year and the Dems will try to do what they always do……

Every year, election year that is, Dems put on their progressive clothing to win votes and have NO intention of carrying the principles of progressivism forward once elected……what I am saying is that if the voter is looking for a conservative party then look no further the the Dems.

I recently read an article that talks about the media’s hatred for Biden (more on that shortly)……..there seems to be some that thinks the media is trying to undermine the Biden agenda…..

Why does the media hate Joe Biden? This is a question that has been puzzling me. Why would Joe Biden, who represents the same neoliberal order the corporate media does, be a target of hysterical disdain? It is certainly not because Mr. Biden is taking us too far to the left. Even by the standards of corporate media, Mr. Biden hasn’t taken any serious steps to address our climate apocalypse or any other aspects of our quick march to the end of society as we know it.

Framing Joe Biden as a tool of the left is a narrative used by the fascist right in their conspiracy to erode democracy but why would the supposedly liberal media be joining in? A “return to normal” as represented by the corporate bipartisan neoliberal management of the underclass into the end times is exactly what Mr. Biden represents, and exactly what the media claimed they wanted.

The criticism of Donald Trump, much like the criticism of Joe Biden, frames him as a leftist. Mr. Biden is framed as a woke socialist while Mr. Trump is framed as a revolutionary populist. It is at least true that Mr. Trump wants to end bourgeois democracy. And it is true that Donald Trump used every opportunity to eliminate the free press. This was in theory at least the reason for and the limit of the media’s criticism of him.

Even if the media was incapable of representing the realities of 99% of the population it made sense they would be critical of Donald Trump, regardless of his corporate policies outside of his attitudes about the media. But it seems they dislike Joe Biden even more than the man who was seeking to destroy the very existence of journalism.

Biden’s Imaginary Leftism Is Not Why The Media Hates Him

I agree that Biden’s agenda is imaginary Leftism…..but I do not see the hatred that the writer of the article sees…..

The media helps promote the repressive pro-war agenda of Biden…..the media helps promote the ‘compromise’ myth…..I just do not see the hatred…..if anything the media promotes the spineless policies of both parties.

Any thoughts?

The Privatization Of Medicare

Since I can remember the GOP has hated the very idea of Medicare and almost every Congress they have worked tirelessly to try and give the health industry a win by privatizing the program.

Every year since the election of Reagan the foundation of Medicare has been chipped a way….then there is Biden……a president that is heavily invested in the chipping……

A Trump-era pilot program that could result in the complete privatization of traditional Medicare in a matter of years is moving ahead under the Biden administration, a development that—despite its potentially massive implications for patients across the U.S.—has received scant attention from the national press or Congress.

a group of physicians from around the nation will try to grab the notice of lawmakers, the Biden White House, and the public by traveling to Washington, D.C. and demanding that the Health and Human Services Department immediately stop the Medicare experiment, which is known as Direct Contracting (DC).

The doctors plan to present HHS with a petition signed by more than 1,500 physicians who believe the DC pilot threatens “the future of Medicare as we know it.”

Advocates have been publicly sounding the alarm about the DC program for months, warning that it could fully hand traditional Medicare over to Wall Street investors and other profit-seekers, resulting in higher costs for patients and lower-quality care.

https://www.commondreams.org/news/2021/11/30/congress-asleep-switch-biden-continues-trump-era-ploy-privatize-medicare

Once again the Democrats prove that they are NO better than the GOP….their concerns are for the donors NOT the people.

Medicare could be lost in the name of ‘compromise’ and word that does more damage than good.

At what point do the American people start paying attention to their future and stop living on social media for instant gratification?

The ONLY answer to getting proper health care for the people of this country is Medicare For All.

Not only is this country being hollowed out but your well-being is in jeopardy….and yet you prefer to see what moron has posted a cat video on Twitter or Instagram or whatever other mindless stupidity is out there.

Until the voter starts truly paying attention then we deserve all the silliness and mindless stupidity we get.

Biden: One Year On

Closing Thought–12Nov21

As my readers know I am a international relations/foreign policy nerd……When Biden won the election last year I said then that I was unimpressed with his record of world affairs…..he may have had 40 years experience but his best thing was his waffling on issues that effect our foreign policy…..he has waffled on such issues as war……ignored human rights violations…..

Now after a year he was done very little that I can say is good…..actually he has made things worse in some quarters……

Let’s take a look at his foreign policy record so far…..

Sunday marked one year since Americans elected Joe Biden president. And on his first year report card, Americans give him a failing grade. Only 48% of Americans approve of Biden’s performance.

Biden may have received a failing grade, in part, because on several key foreign policy issues, he has done nothing. And on the few he has, he has made things worse.

Middle East

On the key Middle Eastern question, an Israeli-Palestinian peace plan still has not made it onto Biden’s to do list. It is simply not a priority of the Biden administration. Or, as Secretary of State Antony Blinken explained it, “I don’t think we’re at the – in a place where the getting to some kind of negotiation for what ultimately I think has to be the result, which is a two-state solution, is the first order of business.”

In Yemen, despite his promises, Biden has done nothing. Despite his promise that “we are ending all American support for offensive operations in the war in Yemen, including relevant arms sales,” his State Department just notified Congress of a $650 million arms sale to Saudi Arabia, which sounds a lot like “American support for offensive operations in the war in Yemen, including relevant arms sales.” The sale will include 280 advanced medium-range air-to-air missiles and 596 missile rail launchers.

Electing Biden: One Year Later

Biden has proven that money is the only thing he cares about…..his policies illustrate just how many pockets he is in….

We still have 3 more years of waffling and inaction….but that is what I expect from the moderates that run this country…..to me they are spineless and ineffective…..

The G20 Con Job

Biden made his appearance at the G20 in Rome…..a meeting of the minds and corporate influence to outline the direction the US will take in the remaining years of the Biden admin.

What can I say?

I found little actual progress on any level.

Same lies different year.

A few points from the meetings and the ceremonies…..

President Biden wrapped up his time at the Group of 20 summit on Sunday trying to convince Americans and the wider world that he’s got things under control—and taking Russia, China, and Saudi Arabia to task for not doing enough to deal with the existential threat of climate change, the AP reports. Biden’s overall take on his efforts: On climate change, he’s got $900 billion planned for renewable energy, and Congress will vote this coming week. On supply chains, he has plans to make the ports run better and tamp down inflation. For workers, he’s building an economy with pay raises. On diplomacy, world leaders trust him. But he also acknowledged at the Sunday press conference—the first one he’s held solo since mid-June, per CNN—what he can’t yet achieve: bringing Russia, China and Saudi Arabia to the table with the broader international community to limit carbon emissions and move to renewable energy.

(All marvelous promises and wishes….but none will be achieved)

  • Relationships: Biden spelled out his belief that all politics is personal and that what progress was achieved at the Rome summit came from direct interactions with other leaders. “They know me. I know them,” Biden said of his fellow G20 leaders. “We get things done together.” He also dismissed fears his allies at the summit might not be ready to embrace his administration after Trump: “They listened. Everyone sought me out. They wanted to know what our views were, and we helped lead what happened here. … The United States of America is the most critical part of this entire agenda.”
  • Manchin and Sinema: For all the challenges confronting him, the president attempted to stay optimistic. As Biden departed the news conference, he offered a thumbs up when asked if West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin and Arizona Sen. Kyrsten Sinema—key Democratic votes—were on board with his $1.75 trillion spending package for families, health care, and renewable energy. As for what that meant, White House deputy press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre, said, “As the President said during the press conference, he is confident we are going to get this done and the thumbs up was simply a visual restatement of that.”

(These two spineless corporate stooges are on a sugar high for they can dictate whatever their donors want to be embraced)

  • More optimism: The president also shrugged off his recent decline in the polls, saying that numbers go up and down, the same thing has happened to all other presidents, and “that’s not why I ran.”
  • Pope: The policy issues seemed to fade for Biden when asked about his time Friday with Pope Francis. The president became deeply emotional, his hands appearing to fiddle with the mask he wore as a precaution because of COVID-19. He spoke of how the pope comforted the Biden family in a Philadelphia airport hangar after the death of his son, Beau, in 2015. “He is everything I learned about Catholicism from the time I was a kid going from grade school to high school.”
  • Supply chain: Earlier Sunday, the president signed an executive order that aims to help with supply chain shortages; he also announced increased funding to help the US and international partners with supply chain resilience and will hold a summit next year centered on the issue. “I urge all of you … to consider bolstering your stockpiles critical to national security in your countries,” he told G20 leaders

(I covered this subject yesterday……https://lobotero.com/2021/11/01/closing-thought-01nov21/

Do not take my word for it…..

“G20 leaders could have taken urgent action to dramatically scale up manufacturing and access to Covid-19 vaccines around the world, promote a fair economic recovery, lower dangerous greenhouse gas emissions, and help the poorest countries adapt to the climate change already happening,” Jörn Kalinski, senior adviser at Oxfam International, said in a statement. “The bottom line is that this summit failed to deliver much of anything for people, planet, or prosperity.”

“Those Godless Commies”

Once again I can thank my friend over at….https://www.theindependentknight.com/ to give me food for thought….https://www.theindependentknight.com/trumpian-politics/the-second-amendment-protects-america-um-from-what-exactly/

The title could be about anything the idiots on the Right want to bitch about…..but in this case it is about the attempts to get some gun reforms…..since Biden is president as of this writing we will look at his lame attempts at reform…..

Biden-Harris Administration is announcing a comprehensive strategy to combat gun violence and other violent crime. This strategy implements preventative measures that are proven to reduce violent crime, and attacks the root causes – including by addressing the flow of firearms used to commit crimes.

This strategy will use the Rescue Plan’s historic funding levels and clear guidance to help state, local, territorial, and tribal governments get the money they need to put more police officers on the beat – with the resources, training, and accountability they need to engage in effective community policing – in addition to supporting proven Community Violence Intervention programs, summer employment opportunities, and other investments that we know will reduce crime and make our neighborhoods safer.

Those godless commies are coming for your guns…..was the expected tagline for the idiots…..

Really?

With this limp dick approach nothing will….even if it was a stronger response it would still be ineffective.

Why you ask?

Media outlets love reporting the results of polling on hot-button policy issues, but they rarely tell you if the people supporting proposed legislation (especially when it’s restrictive) are the same people who would be affected by it. That matters in several important ways, not least of which is that getting a law passed is not the same thing as getting people to obey. Nowhere does that matter more than in the heated debate over gun laws.

“Fifty-seven percent of registered voters in the March 24-26 survey said there should be more laws regulating guns in the country,” The Hill reported earlier this year of the results of a Hill-HarrisX poll. That the story might be a little more complicated is hinted at later in the article where the numbers are broken down along partisan lines to reveal that 79 percent of Democrats support tighter gun laws, but only 36 percent of Republicans agree.

Why does the partisan divide on gun policy matter so much? Because gun ownership has traditionally been divided just as starkly along partisan lines, “with Republican and Republican-leaning independents more than twice as likely as Democrats and those who lean Democratic to say they own a gun (44% vs. 20%),” according to 2017 polling by Pew Research. That may indicate an ideological difference, or it may be evidence that familiarity with firearms encourages a more relaxed attitude towards their legal status, or both. Whatever the reason for the deep disagreement, enforcing “tighter gun laws” would require the cooperation of the people who actually possess them and oppose such policy changes.

Don’t Be Surprised if Gun Owners Don’t Comply With Gun Control Laws

In case my readers needs some info on the gun facts……https://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2021/09/13/key-facts-about-americans-and-guns/

This is a letter challenging the right to private ownership of guns…..

***Do Not Shoot The Messenger…This Is Someone’s Opinion….Not Mine….***

Those who believe the 2nd Amendment supports private gun ownership are long on opinions and short on facts, as is shown by J.T. Coyote’s letter published in July. Actually,Mr. Coyote’s letter was somewhat confusing as he first asserts the constitution does not “give” us the right to own and bear arms, but rather God does – even though the “right” to own personal weapons is not discussed in the Bible. Regardless, having dismissed the constitution as the genesis of this “right”, the remainder of the letter is indeed about the Second Amendment.

Just some food for thought.

Congress Does What It Does Best–Nothing

As this year’s session draws to a close…The Congress does what it always does….waits until it is a certainty that nothing or little gets done.

Like the whole ‘Building America Back’ scam……

Biden’s ambitious economic plan for the nation was just what all politicians do….promise and fail to deliver….but most are not disappointed because they have fail safe that will protect their Centrist BS…..Biden’s fail safe has been Manchin and Sinema in the Senate……

As Biden’s modest economic plan crumbles, brought asunder from within by members of his own party, the fate of the Democrats in the midterm elections seems as firmly sealed as that of poor Fortunato in Poe’s “A Cask of Amontillado.” Yet, I can’t help thinking this collapse was inevitable and was secretly, if not desired at least planned for by Biden. Losing Democratic control of the Congress would leave him in Clinton’s position after the rout of 94–both as the last defense against the Republican Visigoths and able to freely wheel-and-deal unfettered by the demands of his party’s progressive wing. Bill was adept at triangulation politics. But then he was a much nimbler politician than Biden, able to screw over his electoral base and still seduce them into voting for him again two years later.

Joe Manchin: “I’ve never been a liberal in any way, shape, or form, so if progressives want a bigger reconciliation bill elect more liberals…I cannot accept our economy, or basically our society, moving towards an entitlement mentality.”

Of course, Manchin’s never hesitated to demand entitlements for banks and corporations

Biden always knew he had three failsafes against having to fulfill any of the big ticket promises he made during the campaign: the Senate parliamentarian, Sinema and Manchin. He didn’t even need Mitch.

(Jeffrey St. Clair)

I say do nothing because the infratstructure plan is widely popular with the people of this country….

Despite Republican opposition in Congress, majorities of Americans favor every key aspect of President Biden’s infrastructure plan, according to a new Yahoo News/YouGov poll.

The survey of 1,649 U.S. adults, which was conducted from April 6 to April 8, found that most (51 percent) say they would support “another big legislative package to invest in America’s infrastructure and combat climate change”; far fewer (30 percent) say they would oppose it.

Both Democrats (80 percent to 8 percent) and independents (48 percent to 36 percent) favor such a package. Republicans are opposed, 58 percent to 22 percent.

(yahoo news)

And yet nothing from the Congress….but what’s new?

Real Progressives have seldom thought the Congress was on their side….the nation is stuck in 1950 and Dems are NO help in moving this country forward…..cash has made the Congress a do-nothing institution which is crippling the country and its people.

And yet the voter turns a blind eye to the BS making them as worthless as tits on a flashlight.

We could change all this stagnation….but sadly we will not.

Is Biden Unimpressive?

This depends on whom you ask.

In my opinion is very unimpressive.

During the campaign of 2020 we were promised so much and the Dems have delivered so little…..of course it is not all their fault.

Oh they have had some marvelous ideas but that is as far as it goes for the Senate is a wall for any progress.

The Biden promises are shrinking in action….

Joe Biden’s poll numbers are going south. An average of polls at FiveThirtyEight shows that more people disapprove (49%) of him than approve (45%), a sharp reversal from the start of his presidency, when 53% approved and 36% disapproved. The decline has largely occurred over the last two months, notes the Pew Research Center, thanks to big factors such as the chaotic Afghanistan pullout, rising COVID cases, and trouble with his domestic agenda in Congress. Related coverage:

  • The problem: At the Cook Political Report, Amy Walter writes that the issue is a serious one for Biden and Democrats because “these early mistakes go directly to the very rationale of his presidency; that it would be low drama and high competence.” She adds that it’s not unusual for a first-term president to go through a rough patch, and the big question is whether Biden can pull out of it. However, the longer he’s in the White House, the more expectations will rise, and it won’t be enough for Democrats to rely on the he’s-not-Trump argument.
  • In context: Biden’s critics on the right already are pronouncing him a failure, and Susan B. Glasser at the New Yorker finds this just as ridiculous as when progressives anointed him the second coming of FDR in the spring. “It was too soon then to nominate him to a place on Mount Rushmore; it is too soon now to consign him to the ash heap of history,” she writes. “What we might be seeing, instead, is a bit of a return to normalcy in American politics—the kind of normalcy in which a President’s job-approval rating goes up or down depending on how people think he is actually doing.”
  • From the right: At the National Review, Jim Geraghty ticks off Biden’s troubles, including those mentioned above, plus border issues and friction with France and China. “Biden, Antony Blinken, and the rest of the president’s team spent a lot of time patting themselves on the back and declaring that ‘America is back!’ after taking office,” he writes. “But as autumn arrives, they look naïve, unprepared, slow-footed, and in over their heads. A flailing president is a failing president.”
  • From the right, II: Matt Lewis is even more scathing in the Daily Beast. “It’s starting to feel like the wheels are coming off for Joe Biden at the job he’s been dreaming of since he first arrived in the Senate in 1973,” he writes. This applies to the both the domestic and global fronts. Lewis notes that he has previously criticized former President Trump’s “childish approach to governing … but it turns out that dunking on him and signifying responsibility without actually achieving better results isn’t nearly enough.”
  • Unwanted comparison: Meanwhile, two separate pieces in the New York Times this week make a similar point that Democrats won’t like—that in regard to Afghanistan and the border, Biden appears to be borrowing from the Trump playbook. One is a news analysis by Michael D. Shear, Natalie Kitroeff, Zolan Kanno-Youngs, and Eileen Sullivan, and the second is a column by Frank Bruni. “Biden is a far cry from Trump,” writes Bruni. “Hallelujah. But that doesn’t mean that he’s untouched by Trump.”

The big ideas of police reform (dead), voting rights (pending but doomed), infrastructure (pending but not looking good), immigration (dead), ending the filibuster (a joke without a laugh line) and so many more and the Congress is waffling (as usual)……

With time left the Dems have an impressive yet chaotic time before the end of session…

Democrats will start one of the most chaotic legislative sprints in recent memory. With a potential government shutdown looming, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said Saturday that three key bills, including President Joe Biden’s $3.5 trillion reconciliation package, “must pass” in the coming week.

That timeline means the next week could be make or break for Biden’s legislative agenda, but all three bills face a complicated road ahead in Congress.

“The next few days will be a time of intensity,” Pelosi said in a letter to her caucus on Saturday. “We sent a CR to the Senate and are awaiting their action to avoid a shutdown. We must pass the BIF to avoid the expiration of the surface transportation funding on September 30. And we must stay on schedule to pass the reconciliation bill so that we can Build Back Better.”

https://www.vox.com/2021/9/26/22694549/congress-reconciliation-infrastructure-debt-ceiling-explained

With 90 days left in the session of Congress it looks dismal for any progress….and 2022 an election year will be a do nothing session for the House will be at home with their knee pads on begging for money and lying to the voter to gain their place in Congress once again.

Biden has not been a disappointment for me for I did not think he would be that effective because he is a centrist that will do little to move this country forward….all in the name of bi-partisanship (a word that means little to this country).

Any thoughts?
