“Since I took office, families are carrying less debt … more Americans feel financially comfortable” – President Joe Biden (03.06.2022).
You know that coffee either taste good warm or as ice-coffee, not in the middle or lukewarm. Lukewarm coffee must be the work of the devil. Since it makes the coffee taste stale and bad. Instead of having the tones and a flavours of which the beverage is supposed to have.
Why do I say this?
Well, United States of America President Joe Biden is the epitome of lukewarm coffee. His neither hot or cold. His the boring in the middle and out-of-touch career politician. Biden has no spine or now will to achieve things. That’s why his achievements are so-and-so. What is striking is that he acts like he isn’t in office or doesn’t have executive power. Secondly, he cannot reign in on the Senate or get popular bills through either.
That’s why his Presidency is close to pointless. We know that the tiredness and the lies of Trump was catching up with. Also, the promise of ending the pandemic and getting a new normal was what Biden wanted to offer. However, he got nothing in the sense of care, concern or programs, which could be meaningful. Unless, it is to help corporate donors and being afraid of a new Republican takeover.
Biden is hopeless… that’s how his looking and Harris isn’t saving him either. The Biden Administration seems inept or not willing to face the realities. The inflation, the rising prices and a lack of regulations to bridge gap is obvious. The current government rather live on inflated numbers and calculations, than consider the real implications living pay-check to pay-check and not ensuring liveable wages. Only in the USA where a childbirth or a sickness can bankrupt a family in the lower middle-class. So, Biden isn’t helping, but instead saying tokenism to boost the ego of the donor-class and the upper echelons. Must surely be nice to smooch with the elite while toying around the working class.
Meanwhile Biden doesn’t understand what is going on. If not his not listening or disinterested. It is like it doesn’t face him or his allies. They pay them no mind and doesn’t understand what implications it has. When people are struggling and no one comes to save you. Your most likely looking elsewhere and even hoping the devil you don’t know will help you out. Even if they are most despicable and disingenuous people. Still, you rather vote for them, as they give at least the bare minimum and promises to fix things. While you in power and with the mandate in both houses of Congress should get legislation voted through. However, in June 2022 that’s too much to ask.
Biden is strangled by the demigod of Manchin and Sinema. He just can’t catch a break. His team cannot configure how to be professionals and play their cards. Instead the soft and meagre manoeuvres make him look like a man without power. Just like a flaccid and broken old man who is to tired to act or unbothered to actually do an honest living.
President Biden could have achieved things. That’s if he wanted too and wasn’t only talking tough to opposition. He should have reigned in his senators and done legislation that really mattered. Because, he has the House and could get things through the Senate with the VP vote like Trump did during this term. However, he has dismissed that and isn’t even trying.
Biden is lukewarm coffee and it tastes like it too. Distasteful chants should ring in Washington D.C. Peace.
“Third, if the Court does overturn Roe, it will fall on our nation’s elected officials at all levels of government to protect a woman’s right to choose. And it will fall on voters to elect pro-choice officials this November. At the federal level, we will need more pro-choice Senators and a pro-choice majority in the House to adopt legislation that codifies Roe, which I will work to pass and sign into law” (Biden – ‘Statement by President Joe Biden, 03.05.2022).
The term of Joseph Biden as President has been a faulty one. It has been a corporate stooge and furthering the interests of the K Street Lobbyists. This period of time after President Donald J. Trump haven’ been about changes or making significant progress. Instead, the ones running the House of Representatives, the Senate and the Presidency is taking it easy on the job.
The Democratic Party is following party-lines and procedural lines, without any sort of results worth mentioning. Even under the despicable Trump term they got things done for their voters and they did what they could with 51 votes with a tie with VP Mike Pence. The Democrats won’t even do that or push that, as they have the option of doing so. The Republican’s did it. So why can’t Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi pull it off? Is that rule on for the GOP and the Republican’s when they have a gig to fulfil?
Just listen to his interview:
““We will be ready when any ruling is issued,” Biden said. If the Supreme Court overturns Roe ”it will fall on our nation’s elected officials at all levels of government to protect a woman’s right to choose,” he said. “And it will fall on voters to elect pro-choice officials this November,” the president said” (CNBC – ‘Biden defends abortion rights after leak of Supreme Court draft striking down Roe v. Wade’ 03.05.2022).
He sounds like his not in office and needs more people in Congress. That is partly true, especially in the Senate, as long as the Filibuster rule is followed. Nevertheless, the President could use the VP tie like mentioned, if they played the political games like the Republicans. However, we know the Democrats will never do that.
We know that Biden doesn’t have a spine or the way to be brutal. Neither does Schumer or Pelosi. They wouldn’t dare to challenge the norm and do that for the safety of woman across the Republic. No, they rather politicking and use it as a means to an end. They rather use this for the mid-terms than securing the lives of woman more safe. That’s really insane and show how little they care.
I called Biden weak-tea ahead of the polls, but his cold-tea and a tasteless fellow too. Instead of using the power, the leadership of two houses and pull the strings within own party to get things done. His asking for the citizens to further their power and get more Democrats elected. Like the public doesn’t know the Democrats already have the House and the Senate. However, that is wasted until the mid-terms.
The Roe V. Wade possibly overturned should be the first memo to start the codification or ensure the motion to create a law out of the ruling. As the Democrats has the power to do so. Nevertheless, that’s too much to ask… Biden is lacking the character and political ambition to even establish abortion rights in the Republic.
This just shows how disingenuous Biden and the Democrats are. They could fix it and make it happen. That is if they actually cared or was concerned. Instead, they are using this as a means to campaign. Because, it is not like the Biden administration can campaign on its achievements or policies it has ushered it. It is an empty shell of government and they are just busy cashing-in-the-checks. Peace.
“President Joe Biden signed an order Friday to free $7 billion in Afghan assets now frozen in the U.S., splitting the money between humanitarian aid for poverty-stricken Afghanistan and a fund for Sept. 11 victims still seeking relief” (NBC4 Washington, 12.02.2022).
The United States of America armed forces invaded Afghanistan post 9-11 in 2001. As a direct attack and retaliation of the attack on American soil on the 11th September 2001. Alas, the US Government and all it’s entities went after Afghanistan government and installed a puppet government in Kabul. That was done to get rid of Al-Qa’ida and stop Taliban from running the government in the Republic.
The US and it’s allies was in the nation for over 20 years, continuously keeping the warfare active and being the bondage of the state. They kept various of vassal cabinets and presidents, which did their bidding. While accepting foreign aid and strings attached to the funds, which it got over the two decades.
The US and allies did plan a retreat and to slow the operation down after being there for two decades. However, the way it went down was unplanned and without any significant delivery. As the empire and all its soldiers left. While the supporters and the ones who fought along the invaders was left stranded. As well, as the US government decided to freeze the state funds and not give those to the new installed government, Taliban.
That is the reality here, as the US troops left the country in the end of August 2021. Now mere months after the Biden Administration who hijacked the government reserves. Are now using it partly to repay the victims of 9-11 and the rest will be donated or given to the NGOs/multi-national aid organizations they see fit. This is a steal and taking another nations government reserves. While deciding it’s fate.
I wonder, if Washington D.C. wouldn’t have taken kindly, if any state had taken it’s federal reserve and played around with it as it deemed fit. Especially, after the same nation had invaded it and kept it in constant warfare for two decades and leaving the Republic in financial distress after it.
So, now that there is possible humanitarian devastation in Afghanistan and a broke government to cover the bills, which is taking away the reserves. The US has decided how to spend it. That is a move of villain. Just like the French gave the former colony Haiti debt distress and a debt it couldn’t recover from after the independence.
In 2022 the US and Biden Administration wants to compete with that and show they are the Empire that strikes back. Because of that, I just have to use a scene from the movie from 1980:
“Luke: There’s something not right here… I feel cold. Death.
Yoda: [points to a cave opening beneath a large tree] That place… is strong with the dark side of the Force. A domain of evil it is. In you must go.
Luke: What’s in there?
Yoda: Only what you take with you” (Star Wars – The Empire Strike Back, 1980).
I am sure we are seeing the same place and feeling the dark side of the force. Because, the freezing of funds and later hijacking it. Isn’t done out the kindness of his heart from Biden or any of cronies in his administration.
No, this is a retaliation and the humanitarian aid is just a mockery of it. As they don’t care and this is sophisticated thieving on an international level and the US should be held capable for this. If anyone else did this, it would have consequences and it would have costs.
The US should actually have paid damages for decades long war, but instead it’s thieving money away from Kabul. This is disgraceful and should be a violation of a sovereign nation, which no nation should be stripped out of. However, the Empire isn’t forgiving and the humiliation of utter failure last year had to be punished. Therefore, they do it monetarily like this. Peace.
The Democratic Party in the United States is supposed to have the Presidency, the House of Representatives and have 50 senators in the Senate. So, in the Senate the Vice-President could vote to have a majority like the Trump Presidency showed plenty of times when Mike Pence voted in favour when it was a tie on legislation and important votes there.
It is tragic that the 45th President was able to do more than what the Democratic President Joe Biden. That’s because he doesn’t have the loyalty or the ability to have all the ducks in the row. Biden cannot keep his senators behind him or get them to vote for the legislation, which is supposed to be the unique and the what the Republic needs at this very moment. Instead, they have rebels like Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema.
Even with a President who used mostly to pass Executive Orders, he was at least doing something for his base. He ordered things and pushed things forward for his political base. Alas, the Democrats doesn’t seem to be able to do that. The Biden Administration isn’t able to backtrack or fix the repressive immigration policies of the Trump era. Neither is it able to tax-loops, the corporate tax-levies and such. No, the Democrats cannot make the Supreme Court more just or fair. They cannot even try to roll out a fair minimum wage.
The Democrats have promised the magnificent “Build Back Better Act” which was supposed to be filled with stipulations and amendments that was supposed to fix a lot of the issues in the Republic. The bill is said to be costly and be vast. Though, the ones complaining about the costs could vote for the Iron Dome defence in Israel and mega-budget posts for the military industrial complex fitting Pentagon and other security agencies.
Biden and the Democrats are just spoiled by the corporate agenda, which the moderates and the neo-liberal have cheered on. The Squad or the Progressives haven’t gotten anything to prove for. Manchin is acting like his the majority of the people and should have the control of the nation. When his one out of two senators from West Virginia. Not like he has the support in whole South or in the Mid-West. This man is on a high horse and coal-money is inflicting a lot of harm. Manchin will soon sell Trump’s clean coal to the masses.
Joe Biden and the VP looks like they cannot control their own party. The voters has wasted their votes in the last election giving them control of the chambers of congress. Since, they cannot even pass proper legislation or acts of which can make the Republic better. This is is just wasted space and time, which no political party really have. Biden has nothing to show for … except for blocking international media, getting Assange and being a neo-liberal corporate stooge in office.
It is tragic that one or two senators from the own party can stop things from moving forward. It would be natural if the senate filled with Republican’s blocked it. If Mitch McConnell would block things and be a living hypocrite we know he is. That would be expected. The same could be said if the House of Representatives was run by the GOP. However, both places are now run by the Dems. Though it doesn’t look like it.
At this point of time, former rep. Paul Ryan looks like a gem in comparison to Nancy Pelosi. Because, Ryan was able to leverage and get things done. Alas, the Democrats are not even able to do that…
This is just tragic man. You thought things was bad when the Republican was running things. Now, with the Democratic Party it seems all lost and no way forward. Nothing is reformed or changed. Just wasted time and wasted space. Manchin proves that and Biden administration has nothing to counter with. Just a lot of hot-air and a congress filled with wicked corporate interests, which rules supreme. Peace.
It is evident the longer this lasts and this tenure of President Joe Biden. That the Democratic Party doesn’t have all the ducks in the row. Neither does the party have good enough whips to get legislation through Congress. If they did, the majority House would have easily passed a bill and the Senate would have passed it too. Just so it could be finished and in the end signed by the President.
Alas, Biden is stuck with renegade and moderate corporate Democratic Senators who isn’t willing to budge. Joe Manchin of West Virginia is one of them. A man who is willing to block and not sign a Infrastructure bill and add additional spending. While the same man has most likely accepted tax-cuts for corporations and huge spending on the military. Therefore, his reasoning is most likely flawed.
Manchin is a mediocre man. A man who could easily pose as a Republic. At least when he accepts “small” government taxes for the rich and corporation. However, will not spend additional tax-payers funding on roads, rails and infrastructure. Neither, support other government services, which is in dire need. As the aftermath and current time the public is suffering from the global pandemic. It is not like the spending bill on the infrastructure bill going to solve all of this, but it will most likely patch some of the hurt.
However, Manchin rather speak softly from a million-dollar yacht or his mansion. This man who earns fortunes on the coal-industry. He will not support the green industry, because that hurts his own businesses. That is the sort of conflict of interests a politician shouldn’t have. His involved in one trade and rather save that one. Than actually prepare the Republic of the future. That is selfishness and not care for the voters in his constituency. They are just pawns in this game of fortune for his own benefits.
If Manchin alone gets to fiddle with the bill for own self interests and lobbying concerns. Than you know that he does for the gains of his own bank-accounts. This man doesn’t care about the jobs or the climate change. No, he just wants to pocket fat-checks and ensure that his industry is alive at any costs.
Manchin can soon go out and sell “clean coal” like Trump did back-in-the-day. Because, there is no difference between these too. They are both sell-outs for the industries and the corporate agenda. He don’t care about the environment or the future.
In a sense, this man is a self-proclaimed king without a throne. His a king with a domain and title. A senator who believes he has the supreme power and rights to get the final in everything. It would be refreshing if the Majority Leader of the Senate Chuck Schumer had addressed this man and gotten him in line. However, they don’t have the character or the heart to do so. They rather bow their knees to their king and pleas for mercy…
This diet-Republican isn’t what the people are seeking for. Neither is following the will of his own state. His just listening to his own pocket and not dwelling on the concerns of West Virginia even. They are just pawns for him and his recklessness might cost the Democrats in the Mid-Terms. Since, they are not showing progress or positive changes since Trump left office. This bill might have changed the narrative a little bit. However, with the likes of Manchin.
Don’t expect much. Peace.
Well, during the Trump Administration it was courtesy of the Republican President to call the media the “fake news” and not address the media. They only sent out the Spokesperson of the White House and let bygones be bygones.
These days with the Democratic Party President Joe Biden. Things are not getting better. In 2021, the true nature of his administration is getting out. Not only the nonchalant lecturing of the world. However, they are also seizing networks, media houses webpages in a raid from the FBI. Just like pirates taking away content and news pages ability to report. That is done as a sort of display of “national security” but really to stifle the press in other regions of the world.
This is all falling back on the Executive Order from June 9th 2021: “Executive Order on Protecting Americans’ Sensitive Data from Foreign Adversaries “. Where President Biden furthers the powers and continues the path of Trump to go after foreign sites and web-pages. In this regard has no been used against news organizations in the Middle East. Which happens to report in another way than the Washington D.C. accepts. Because, they we’re located on .Com the U.S. say they have jurisdiction to take these sites down. Therefore, they can internationally go after people online. As long as they have a certain power with U.S. law there.
That’s why we can see that the U.S. have now used these powers and by the President who has given his authorities these powers to seize these new-sites. That says it all by the lack of freedom of speech, liberty to post online and produce content. When a nation can go across borders and close news networks or news-sites belonging elsewhere. The lesson here… is that Biden and his government doesn’t really believe in the freedom of the press. Only to the anointed ones and the ones who parrots their agendas. If they differs and has a .com. They should be worried…
That the U.S. does this only shows their true heart and their lack of integrity. That they are demeaning and imperial in action. The Biden administration rather block and silence outside media. Especially, if it see it as a resistance or reporting, which differs from what the U.S. deems undesirable. That is how it looks and Biden cannot run away from this.
Biden and his Executive Order just prolongs and extends the powers Trump had issued in his time. There is no difference here. Only that one man masks as a hero. While the other is the supposed villain. Ironically, Biden is doing the same and furthering the legacy of the interference of the imperial U.S. state. They are doing this online, but it shows their real intentions and what they are gunning for.
I wonder, how would the U.S. have reacted if the PBS, VOX or anything was blocked or jammed online in the nations, which the U.S. has silenced media from?
That seems to only be the fair thing to do. Why should just the U.S. be allowed to silence media? Why shouldn’t Syria and Iran block U.S. media houses now?
Biden deserves to be pushed for this. As his administration and his government is blocking foreign news-sites and news networks. What rights does he have to do this?
Now, the governments of Middle East should retaliate and answer this. Not only being mull and look at it. They should answer back and block U.S. media from their shores. That only makes sense. As the U.S. Imperialism in 2021 needs to be retorted and this act is disgusting. Peace.
“Let’s get this straight: How would it be if the United States were viewed by the rest of the world as interfering with the elections directly of other countries, and everybody knew it? What would it be like if we engaged in activities that he is engaged in? It diminishes the standing of a country that is desperately trying to make sure it maintains its standing as a major world power” – President Joe Biden (16.06.2021).
The United States government have over the years used their power, their might and ability to get puppets and friendly government elected. If not, they have overthrown peacefully elected people to get in leaders who are working directly for Washington D.C.
The US has interfered not only during elections, but after to get their leaders in office. The CIA and other organizations in proxy have intervened. The U.S. have spared any sort of resorts and resources on getting their people in power. This being in Latin America where the U.S. have installed their regimes and they have been working for corporate American interests.
That being Haiti, Nicaragua, Guatamala, Chile, Bolivia and so on. The list is endless. Some are saying the U.S. has interfered in 45 countries since the Second World War. The U.S. installed their puppet in Zaire, the now Democratic Republic of Congo after they helped to assassinate the elected President Patrice Lumumba. That’s how the DRC had decades of despotic rule with Mobutu.
That’s how the U.S. rolls and works. They are using their power and might. They have their agents and their front-organizations to dismantle and ensure their interests are secured on foreign soil. The U.S. doesn’t value democratic values, they only value US dollars and profitable enterprises run by U.S. corporations.
So, when President Biden says what he says. Does he think we forget about Bolivia during Trump and the failed “Wonga” coup of Venezuela? Like does he think we are this dumb or naive?
That we don’t know what the U.S. has done and have been willing to do? Like installing the Shah in Iran and making it a pariah state after the Iranian revolution leading to his fall. That’s just what the U.S. does and leaves behind open wounds. The likes of supporting interventions in nations like Libya, but not having a clear path after overthrowing a President-for-Life Gadaffi. Therefore, Biden should take a step back and maybe have a few history lessons.
The U.S. has a history of using their army, organizations and the CIA has been implicated in overthrowing governments. The U.S. have been involved in coups and in election interference to get their folks in power. To think otherwise is to revise history and forget what the U.S. has done over the years.
The U.S. has installed and secured their interests above all else. They have later preached “democracy” and “liberty”. Though it has been hallow and shallow, as we all know why they did this in the first place. That was to get their value for their US dollars in that Republic. This is the gist of it and its no joke.
Biden please take responsibility. This is not funny. We know and you should know. The U.S. have exported its imperialism over the years. Time to take responsibility and be accountable. Not only think flattery and words like these will skim over it. I hate to say it, but it won’t.
We know what the U.S. has done and been committed to do. I wouldn’t be shocked, if suddenly Biden took down someone who would turn to Russia/China anytime soon. Instead of being loyal to Washington. Peace.
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.
