It is not enough to point out how bad a President we have in Joe Biden, for that does not even crack the surface. In less than two years, Joe Biden and his feckless Administration have done more harm to America and her people than anyone could imagine. It is not accidental, but it is evident that this is an intentional attempt to beat us down to make transformation an easier task. Let’s take a look at some of the facts.
Energy Independence: We achieved energy independence under Donald Trump, and he did so in less than four years. We went from a country dependent on the cost of a barrel from OPEC to being an oil and natural gas supplier to other countries. The petroleum industry was flourishing and doing so with the lowest carbon emissions in history. We had made coal, oil, and natural gas affordable, clean, and safe. That was until January 20, 2021 when Joe Biden disrupted the process with the stroke of a pen.
Biden’s policies drove gas prices to the highest levels in our history and now brags about them being down to $3.60 a gallon. That is bragging about a 50% hike from 2020. Excellent job, Joe, and good luck selling that line of thinking. In the northeast, we are looking at a winter heating season with oil, gas, and propane possibly doubling in price from last year. Some will have to choose between gas for their car, food, or heating their home.
Inflation: We are sitting at 8.3%, but everyone who goes to a grocery store, department store, or dines out knows we are much higher. Biden brags about inflation being at 0% for the last two months, but it really means it is flat at a forty-year high. Biden is not an economic genius. With income rising at 5%, Americans are falling behind every month.
Interest Rates: The Fed has been raising rates for months trying to slow the flow of money and the inflation rate. This is raising credit card and mortgage rates, putting the dream of a home out of reach for many. For an average house of $400,000, the monthly payment is up $1,000 or an increase of $360,000 over the 30-year term.
Illegal Immigration: The only group making huge profits under Biden, other than Hunter, are the Mexican cartels. They are making billions each month by charging illegals to cross the Border into our cöuntry. As many as 4 million have crossed since Biden took office, and our Souther Border no longer exists, nor does our sovereignty. Biden and Harris have shown they have no intention of securing our Border, which is one of their fundamental obligations. They are failing us.
Fentanyl: We have beaten this topic to death as it continues to be the number one cause of death for 18-45-year-olds. How do we put this into a number that gets Biden’s attention? 100,000 a year? 300 a day? Apparently, it does not matter. The cartels are obviously going after a younger market with pastel-colored tablets that resemble a popular kid’s candy. Under this illegal poison takes the life of someone close to a high-ranking Democrat, the Administration is not rattled by the numbers that sicken and scare every American.
What can we point to that excites this President. Abortion and insulin for seniors are about the extent of the list. That is all he can talk about as he travels the country campaigning for Democrats. He addressed the NEA last week. This is the largest teacher’s union. He did not mention Education once but did focus on abortion rights. Why do teachers need to be concerned with abortion? Maybe because global warming is too boring!
Biden is hurting us in the pocket. He is making us less safe in our neighborhoods. He has destroyed our sovereignty. He has weakened us on the global stage. That is the product of his work for half of his term. We may not survive the second act.
