Yesterday on the 20th January 2021 the inauguration of Joe Biden happened. President Biden has a mountain to climb ahead. That’s not his fault, but his predecessor who was inept and incompetent at his job. Biden has more issues to fix, than what he had as the Vice-President during the first Obama Term.
Now, there is not only the humongous need for swift intervention and planning to stagnate a crisis with the COVID-19 or the Coronavirus. Which the previous administration downplayed and didn’t really stomach. They only let people die and didn’t properly intervene. Trump Administration and their COVID-19 Taskforce was a useless entity. Only to booster business and enterprises in favour of the government. It wasn’t made to stop the spread of the virus or actually make a difference. That is why the spread is so massive, the amounts of death is spiralling out and by the time Biden became President. The numbers of deceased in the Republic because of it was the amount of 400,000 citizens. That all happened because of the inept Trump administration.
Yes, the commentators will now blame all of these on Biden. Biden will be thrown into hot fire and be burned. The test is if the White House can defend what they do and how they are fixing it. They need to address it properly and let science do its work. As the previous bastard-in-chief didn’t care and thought pseudo-science and conspiracy theories could heal the wounds. Alas, it is never like that.
Other, than that… Biden has to fix the economy. Work on the growing deficits and the negative rates hitting the financial institutions. As yet another Democrat have to clear the air after a Republican botches a working economy. Where the safeguards and financial integrity have been traded on quick-get-rich schemes and less oversight. That has been key things done in the Trump years. Also, the tax-cuts and enriching the elites, while the state has cut on the basics and support system for the poorest. Social security and Medicaid for all have been hit hard, but big-men in business have priority citizens.
Biden has to also work in a very split society. Created with amplified visions of the Republicans. Who rather see the Republic burning than listening to any sort of facts. The President have to look into, investigate and prioritize criminal proceedings not only into the insurrection of the Capitol. The President has to also investigate fellow Congress members and Senators who was in on it. Not to forget the need to look into Right Wing Extremists and militias who has thrived during the Trump Presidency. These has been shielded and the authorities have given them a silent “pass”. Now, it is time to do something about it.
Biden has a lot of work ahead. Not only write Executive Orders. Even though he got revoke certain aspects. He got to go head-on. Show that he is different than Trump, but also show integrity and accountability. Just as the most corrupt and incompetent administration has left the White House. The rampant nepotism and lack of protocol have to be investigated. All the breaches of codes by the former administration. There was so many who broke the Hatch Act and other codes while in office. The Trump Administration needs to be investigated in the Foreign Emoluments Clause and if their associates did violate this in their tenure. That only makes sense now. It will hurt the Republican party, but they need to be accountable and take responsible for their actions.
Joe Biden has so many hurdles. Not only does his Secretary of State have to prove that the United States cares, but also have some plans for their policies. As in the past one, these could be bought and fixed by simple gestures to the Man on the Throne. That has to change now. Especially, if the US is back to normalcy. We know that will take time, as the Trump administration ensured the Biden administration starts with no ready vetted cabinet members or appointments. Just to show their vicious, loser mentality and how they don’t care about stability.
The Biden administration have only hard work ahead and a lot of dirt to clean out. Biden better handle with not only caution, but with finesse. As there will be no easy way out and the only way is face the harsh realities. This is an unforgiving role and a place very few wants to go. He has to fix and clean a mess. A shambles of a government and make people trust it again.
Trump proved he could break a system. Trump proved the ills of society. Now, Biden needs to heal and fix the system. That will hurt, be painful and be a process. It will not happen over night, but is a needed task. Especially, if the world is supposed to trust the US and its values. Because, those are in the bin and someone has to rehash it.
That is Biden right now. That isn’t a fun journey. Neither is it reality TV or a fun segment on SNL. No, its dedication and honouring principals. What Biden should know and see is that those principals and codes are worthless to the Republicans. That is why he has to shook them and get them into submission. Just like they do to Democrats when they are in power. Since, the Bi-Partisanship only matters to Democrats, but not to Republicans in power. That is why Biden has to seal the deals and be fierce at some point. Not only humble and show humility. He needs to be strong and be resilient.
As all the ills of the previous administration will be put on him. Even if it isn’t true. However, that is how unforgiving his task is. To takeover after a train-wreck of an administration must be restless. The Biden administration needs to revitalize and rejuvenate departments, which has been weaponized by the previous ones. That will not be easy, but a needed task. Unless, the President will have civil servants and other appointments working against him. Peace.
