When politicians remind us that elections have consequences they don’t normally mean that their successful campaigns will result in harming the very people and the country that they were elected to represent and protect. Such is the case, however, with the Biden administration. Switching up policies is something that always happens when a new administration takes power but it has always been with the same goals in mind, to make life better for Americans. New policies were just the other party’s belief in getting to the same goal in a different way. However, what the country has been witnessing since January 20 of this year is perhaps the first time in our history where a sitting president has gone out of his way to make life hard on the people and the country. Joe Biden swore an oath to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution, which in turn means to preserve, protect, and defend the rights of the citizens of the United States as listed inside that Constitution. So far he has gone out of his way many times to do the exact opposite.
Take for example what Biden is doing with our southern border. By opening up the border to over 25,000 migrants asking for asylum and ordering all immigration law enforcement to stand down while hordes of migrants race their way to cross our border has absolutely no benefit to a single American citizen and will harm millions when all is said and done. The cost to American citizens in lost jobs, increased taxes, and increases in crime IS enough to impeach Biden, but no one is listening. The executive orders he has signed on immigration shows he is actively seeking to flood the country with people who mostly cannot take care of themselves and Biden is placing the cost of that burden on the rest of us. It seems like Biden wants to return to the broken immigration system of the past that Trump fixed. For example, Biden ended the policy of keeping asylum seekers in Mexico while waiting for their hearings. It was an effective program that reversed the Obama-Biden policies that allowed migrants into the country while waiting for their asylum hearings never to be seen again, a policy that turned “asylum seekers” into illegal aliens, which proved they were never asylum seekers in the first place. The Biden administration wants citizens terrified of coronavirus but they have no plans to test migrants pouring across our border for COVID-19. How does any of this make sense?
Why would an American president do this to his own people?
President Trump pulled us out of the disastrous Iran nuclear deal because written in the deal it gives Iran the legal right to have nuclear weapons fifteen years out. The Iranian regime was violating the deal almost the instant the Obama administration lied to the world by claiming they had an agreement even though the deal was never signed. I bet you didn’t know that which is an indictment on our mainstream news media. The fact that Obama did a deal of this magnitude without going for advice and consent by the US Senate because a deal like this is a treaty, was enough to impeach Obama. But nobody listened. Joe Biden has said that he wants to reengage in negotiations with Iran over the nuclear deal. Why does there have to be renegotiations when I thought it was a done deal? Why would Biden get us back into a deal that allows Iran, a terrorist regime, to obtain nukes in a deal that was never signed and was violated before the non-existing ink dried?
Why would an American president do this to his own people?
What Biden has done so far makes it seem like he wants to take the country back to the days of the Obama administration when the globalists were in charge and millions of American workers had to scramble to find work because backroom deals were made in the DC swamp that didn’t take them into consideration and usually ended up sending their jobs overseas.
If I remember correctly, and I do, the Obama years were horrible economically and it was directly because of the policies of Barack Obama and Joe Biden. They lied about everything. They manipulated the unemployment rate to make it appear lower than it really was. They created economic policies that never had a single year out of eight that saw 3 percent growth. They set race relations back 50 years with a race-hustling first black president and the overall feeling throughout the country was that we were in decline and we had better get used to it because it was the new normal.
The worst part about the Obama years was that they believed the lies they told themselves that everything they did was spectacular for the country and that they went 8 years without any major scandals that would have embarrassed them. They had a willing news media that acted as an army of stenographers who would write down everything the administration told them to say. This is why the Biden people believe we should be taken back to that time.
Donald Trump inherited a real mess from Obama-Biden with an economy that was failing along with the spirit of being an American waning by the day. Trump turned it all around in under the first two years of his presidency. This is why it’s maddening to listen to leftists in the media and elsewhere along with Democrats claiming the Trump years were so horrible when we all know he made America great again, and it is especially like a punch in the gut to see Joe Biden reversing all of the America First policies that brought so many people so much prosperity. It’s like the Democrats felt insulted that an outsider came in and showed them how it was done, and not only that but made it look easy. It seems like we’re living in an age of revenge.
Jealousy, anger, bitterness, and resentment can make people do strange things but to reverse policies that even folks with a double-digit IQ can clearly see worked for just about everyone denies belief in a Benevolent Being.
The frightening question to be asked is, what the hell are they planning next?
