Now I know why former VP Joe Biden’s campaign handlers have worked diligently to draw from what little good there is from the lockdown during COVID-19: keeping Joe away from people. I don’t think even for one moment that his spending time in the basement of his house was just accidental. His problem is simple: every time he steps in front of a camera or a microphone, he steps in something that really stinks. Either of the two that have surfaced so far would suffice to lose the election for him. Both together may be what puts Donald Trump’s re-election over the top.
Biden: “Trump Squandered a Great Obama/Biden Economy”
Joe Biden claimed on Tuesday that President Donald Trump has “squandered” an economic expansion inherited from the previous administration.
“Donald Trump inherited the longest economic expansion in history from the Obama-Biden Administration, but like everything else he’s inherited, he has squandered it,” Biden wrote in a tweet.
The former vice president made his comment after the National Bureau of Economic Research noted on Tuesday that the U.S. economy peaked in February and has hit a downturn. In an article attached to his tweet, Biden said that the bureau’s announcement “that our economy has been in recession for months now is a reminder that well before the COVID-19 threat emerged, President Trump had already turned his back on the middle class.”
Biden criticized President Trump for cutting taxes for big corporations and the richest Americans instead of investing in the middle class, as well as driving manufacturing into a recession across the Midwest. He also blamed the president for systematically stacking the deck against working families.
“And now, even in a recession, President Trump is doubling down on this agenda, diverting money meant for small businesses to big corporations and his wealthy donors, and presiding over the largest corporate bailout in America with no strings attached, and little oversight,” he wrote. Biden said the president has forgotten about the middle class long before the CCP Virus pandemic hit the nation, causing millions of people to become unemployed and businesses to be shuttered.
Though Biden admitted that President Trump is not responsible for the CCP Virus, or coronavirus pandemic, he must be responsible for a completely bungled response that not only cost thousands of lives but millions of jobs that should not have been lost.
“The ‘unprecedented magnitude’ of the economic hit, and the ‘broad reach’ of it—that’s on Donald Trump,” Biden said. He added, “Millions of Americans are suffering right now because of his negligence and incompetence.”
In his article, Biden did not spend time talking about his own plans for the future as a candidate running against the incumbent president.
Biden also claimed that President Trump has “run the same playbook hollowing out our economy … the rich get richer, powerful get more power,” but data from the Congressional Budget Office shows that nearly 2.5 million Americans have been lifted out of poverty under Trump administration, while real household wealth has increased nearly $12 trillion since the start of 2017.
Before the CCP Virus outbreak hit the U.S. economy, the Trump administration had created nearly 7 million jobs since his election, including more than 500,000 manufacturing jobs, and the unemployment rate was at its lowest level in half a century.
There were seemingly no manufacturing or trade jobs under the Obama-Biden administration.
Christians Need to be Put on a Watch List
At the town hall, Biden advocated for a registry of all religious organizations that won’t toe the line of the gay agenda. That proclamation at the townhall parallels the agenda of the radical group called the Southern Poverty Law Center which is pushing for all opposition to the LGBTQ policies to be designated as “terrorism,” which under the “Patriot Act” means that an individual’s constitutional rights are nullified.
“What we had before to deal with hate crimes was we had a position in our administration, within both the Department of Justice as well as within Homeland Security, a provision to keep watch on these groups that we know are out there – like terrorist groups, they’re similar,” Biden stated, referring to the “danger” of Christians in American society.
Biden pushed three things to help end “hate crimes” against gays: passing the Equality Act, monitoring groups that are similar to terrorist groups, and rewrite federal civil rights laws to prevent discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity.
Those seem benign enough, right?
Keep in mind, the Southern Poverty Law Center’s efforts for the designation of Christian groups as “hate groups” is, in essence, to criminalize the Biblical beliefs of more than one billion people on Earth. With such a formal designation, the federal government would be allowed to conduct surveillance legally on the Christian groups.
Oddly, NO Mainstream Media organization reported on either of these two declarations made by Mr. Biden. It should not be surprising that the MSM is already giving him free passes for anything and everything he says. I’ve heard of no one that holds him to account for the radical ideas he now espouses that are light years further left than even those of his former boss, Barack Obama. Biden is pandering to the far left to try and garner their support in the November election. And his opponents in the Republican Party have so far given him a pass on accountability for any of this.
There seems to be something ominous in all of this. His stances voiced, even in a vacuum, are grounds for a sound defeat for the former Vice President. But the details of just these two if ever announced by any other Democrat candidate would have been the basis for the removal from the ticket. Are Pelosi and Company planning to make a last-minute play to replace Mr. Biden with another Democrat? Would a Democrat National Committee’s declaration of a sudden physical incapacity of Joe Biden be sufficient to replace him?
Stranger things have happened.
One thing is certain: former VP Biden is NOT fit to serve as President today. The job and its requirements are far beyond his capabilities. And his wanton attacks on the Christian community easily disqualify him and certainly open pandora’s box of defeat.
I doubt Christians will find themselves with a terrorist designation. But simply the fact that a presidential candidate who was making a statement — not answering a question — would voluntarily state support for a religious group of people to be designated a terrorist organization. Let’s face it: there have been thousands of Christians around the world slaughtered by radical Islamists in the name of THEIR religion. They are not branded as a “terrorist” group — even in the United States. Yet in Biden’s mind, they should be.
“Out of the abundance of the heart a man speaks.”
The saddest thing about Joe is this: I believe he really thinks the economy was thriving under Barack Obama!
(In case you didn’t, the Obama economy was horrendous!)
