The chants of “F*** Joe Biden” showed that many Americans, particularly younger folks, are fed up with leftism and are becoming increasingly vocal about that dissatisfaction. And the tempering of those chants to “Let’s Go Brandon” only show an appreciation for civility. “Let’s Go Brandon” certainly has a political aspect to it, but it’s more cultural than political. American moderates are increasingly saying: Don’t try to shove your leftist values down our throats.
But the most likely, and potentially most dangerous consequence of hightailing it from the Taliban is how that action will embolden our adversaries. Russia is preparing to pounce on Ukraine, and when they do Biden will dismiss any connection to our Afghan pullout, but it’s not true. If we had stood our ground in Afghanistan by not running and leaving behind scores of citizens and billions of dollars of weapons and equipment, Vladimir Putin wouldn’t be flexing his muscles right now.
Through President Joe Biden’s first 100 days in office, he had either proposed or implemented over $6 trillion in new, federal spending. Joe was spending like his son Hunter during a Vegas coke binge. The problem is, of course, Biden was spending money that doesn’t even exist. We were spending more than ever before and putting the country into more debt. Additionally, in late-January when Biden was inaugurated, the economy was already heating up as lockdowns and other Covid measures were being lifted, so we didn’t need more government spending. But that didn’t matter to Joe.
Coming off the heels of the Covid lockdowns and panic of the Covid pandemic, Biden and Team were poised to oversee the natural economic rebound that was inevitable. By the time of Biden’s inauguration in January, businesses were opening up, people were getting ready to go back to work if they weren’t doing so already, and we were vaccinating over a million Americans per day. All Biden and Yellen had to do was to sit back, watch, and not screw things up. But they couldn’t help themselves.
If we all look at Covid and its variants logically, we’ll inevitably conclude that we don’t need mask and/or vaccine mandates. We’ll figure out that we don’t need to shut down schools again and we don’t need to grant sweeping powers to overzealous Democratic governors. And most importantly, if we’re calm and reasonable in how we react to Omicron, we’ll conclude that we don’t need to spend another trillion dollars on some “relief” bill.
If a white male, with a history of making openly anti-black, racially-incendiary statements and repeated acts of physical violence, had intentionally careened into a Juneteenth parade of black elders and young people, it is fair to say that the George Floyd Riots of 2020 would look like a child smacking a pinata in comparison to the reaction to such violence.
