Biden Lost in the First Half Inning

2022 June 21
by bc3b

The first day of his Presidency, Joe Biden signed a raft of executive orders to placate Barack Obama, his handlers and everyone else on the left.

With a few stokes of a pen, Biden undid much of what Trump had accomplished during his presidency – ending the country’s energy independence by stopping construction of the pipeline and exploration in the Arctic and mainland US, stopping construction of the border wall and “remain in Mexico” policy.

Rational people realize that Biden is a puppet president, doing exactly what his puppet masters order him to do. This is really Barack Obama’s third term. Obama sets the overall tone, but enjoys life to the fullest with Susan Rice and other former members of the Obama regime calling the day-to-day shots and drugging Biden with the hope that he can get through any public appearances without totally embarrassing himself. For Obama, it’s the best of all worlds. He can fully enjoy the luxurious life of a multi-millionaire, accomplish his goal of “fundamental transformation” of the United States without it affecting his legacy. It’s all on Biden, even though he refuses to take responsibility.

The American public, except for the most rabid Democrats, realize it’s Biden’s fault. While Biden attempts to blame Vladimir Putin, Donald Trump, greedy businessmen, COVID and everyone else, it’s easy to illustrate that gas prices and inflation were rising long before Russia invaded Ukraine in February. Only Democratic Senators Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema slowed disaster as the GOP stood by silently. Even David Axelrod admits inflation would be much worse without their actions.

The GOP will likely control both houses of Congress in January. The big question is will Republicans have the courage to wield their power to not only stop Joe Biden’s destruction of America but also introduce impeachment proceedings against enemies of America like Merrick Garland and Alejandro Mayorkas – two men working to erode (destroy) our basic freedoms? Or, will they follow cowards like Willard Romney and Lindsey Graham and cower before the media?

    And people wonder why I am against EOs. An EO is nothing more than disguise for an American Cesar.

    The solution? When Congress issues a law so vague that it takes an EO to clarify it, it should not be signed. It should be vetoed and kicked back to Congress for redress.

    The video linked below pretty much sums up what I have come to learn about Bitcoin.

    It is an interesting debate from eight months ago between Peter Schiff and Alex Mashinsky who runs Celsius which is now on the verge of collapse with the fate of billions in frozen deposits being unknown at this point.

    Peter correctly identifies Celsius as a Ponzi scheme and calls out the spike in Bitcoin’s value (then at about $60K) as being more of a sign of a speculative bubble rather than evidence that Bitcoin is a store of value.

    The US Navy has released a training video which looks like a children’s TV show encouraging sailors to announce their pronouns in order to create a “safe space” and avoid “misgendering” people.

    I am so glad my son decided not to join the military. He absolutely hated this crap in high school and it would have killed him if he had to put up with it in the military.

    8, yeah I recall that debate.
    In retrospect, Schiff looks better.
    This more recent interview with Nic Carter is different but covers some of the same ground. It’s way too long but it’s organized into chapters so it’s easy to skip autobiographical sections. He’s far more hopeful but talks candidly about weaknesses and possible flaws.

    I still retain some hope for BTC despite the troubles. To me it’s notable that BTC itself continues to function well despite everything thrown at it. However, a large percentage of the infrastructure (exchanges, stable coins, altcoins, …) has failed spectacularly. Time will tell but we might see BTC rebuild support after the faulty infrastructure is pared back.
    If you are conspiratorial you might wonder if Big Finance was involved with the current carnage. After all, this has been a rare opportunity for The Little Guy to buy BTC and front-run institutions. Institutions are more limited in participation… until regulations are promulgated. If BTC surprisingly stabilizes and soars after institutions buy in at low prices, be suspicious.
    And be wary of altcoins even, in my mind, Ethereum.

    “I still retain some hope for BTC despite the troubles.”
    And it’s not like governments have run national economies and fiat currencies with rectitude and competence.
    The US is comparatively less bad. But I was struck by the insight that in many countries, people are better of in, say, a “stable” coin that lost 20% of its pegged value than staying in their native currency.

    They are…
    Till they realize in about 10 years the officer corp to the extent it’s not already will all be these types…and in their push-button world of ‘warfare’ they might be pro-pushing buttons instead of the usual hesitancy\emotional maturity because CN or RU used the wrong fucking pro-noun.

    Seriously think about the types that have emotional fucking break downs and want people canceled over a perceived wrong pronoun. Now imagine these people in command of warships, drones,etc. It’s one thing to have weaker military, but it’s worse if it’s run and operated by a long bred woke workforce.

    They didn’t wait for the 2017-2022 program to end. One of Brandon’s first acts of malfeasance was to issue an unlawful executive order pausing all lease sales. They grudgingly held Lease Sale 257 in November 2021 to avoid being held in contempt of court. However, a corrupt Obama judge nullified that sale… because climate change. They have subsequently, unlawfully cancelled all remaining sales in the 2017-2022 program. We have now gone two years without Gulf of Mexico lease sales, and will likely see at least a four year hiatus.

    Worse than that even. If I am an Exxon or Chevron exec and I hear POTUS state he intends to destroy your industry is it your first inclination to run out and spend a couple of billion for a new refinery? Or take up new leases? Or drill test wells on those leases? Or spend millions to move a oil platform to tap those leases?

    You would be a fool if you did. And with the political instability of off again on again views of the oil patch coupled with the long development times of oil projects. Again you would be a fool if you did. Just look at the history of the Keystone pipeline. What a cluster -, well you know the rest.

    Democracy will be reserved for the little stuff. Big issues will be decided by elite consensus.

    The Great Reset is about creating a hard authoritarian core for democracy: policies, offices, and funding that are completely beyond the reach of voters. It’s not a new idea, as you can see from issues like immigration and “green energy.” Voters have zero input on either.
    8:23 AM · Jun 22, 2022·

    Voters have been demanding action on border security for decades, but the political class serenely ignores them, aside from the occasional volley of xenophobia insults. If laws are passed, the political class simply refuses to enforce them. A consensus was reached long ago.

    Likewise with “green energy.” Nobody voted for it or wants it. The number of electric cars that could have been built and sold in a fair market, without titanic subsidies extracted from taxpayers, is near zero. Nobody would have voted for this manufactured energy crisis…..

    You can see echoes of this thinking in the battle over political indoctrination in schools. Again, it was never presented honestly or put up for a vote – in fact, as we learned during the pandemic, students were explicitly told not to inform their parents what was happening.

    And it’s increasingly looking like the 2nd Amendment will fall into the authoritarian “imposed consensus” mindset too. A few compliant Republicans have been drafted to help impose the decisions made by elites. It’s all being rushed so the public doesn’t have time to protest.

    The Great Reset really began long before the pandemic. That was just an opportunity to kick it into overdrive, cementing the model of authoritarian rulers making all the Big Decisions and imposing their judgment by force. Democracy will be reserved for the little stuff.

And, that Republicans will not only be blamed for the sad state of affairs, but the GOP leadership will also eagerly accept the blame on behalf of the nasty brutes in their party who dared to support Trump.

    One thing I don’t really get is if Powell tightens so much he causes a recession, it’s a bit unclear how this is a productive plan.

    Sure he might break demand enough to lower inflation a bit, but all of these recessions end up requiring various unprecedented monetary and fiscal stimulus, which is what he’s trying to avoid.

    26 – As near as I can tell, Powell is giving lip service to fighting inflation because it’s supposed to be one of the primary missions of the Fed and he must be seen doing something to provide political cover to the Fed and Biden administration. However, Powell must be smart enough to realize that the small increments in Fed Funds Rate will be in vain. Interest rates cannot be raised anywhere near the level required to actually push inflation back down. Furthermore, any stimulus will be like throwing gasoline on an open flame.

    I believe the Fed is trapped and doesn’t know what to do. Stagflation is looking more likely to become the new norm.

    I’m personally seeing an advantage to having GOP presidents only be in power for 4 years. Just have some firebrand like Trump on power that burns hot but ultimately inflames the opposition enough to lose.

    I mean this hand off was a 50-50 senate that blocked Biden on everything.

    The hand off in 2008 was 60 dem senators. The opposition has become so radical that if they had 60 senators right now we’d all be living in communist China in short order.

    Hopefully, GOP can pick up some seats and have more of a buffer from this madness.

    [Best Rod Serling voice…] Consider if you will… Trump is POTUS and DeSantis is VP after a 49 state sweep. They cut a political deal:

    * I Trump am going to tear this place down in ’24.
    * DeSantis, is POTUS in ’28, plant the seeds of freedom for the ground I ploughed.

    According to city police in the city of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, car theft is an increasing problem during pandemic times—and it’s especially dangerous to own a Hyundai or Kia.

    City council members are blaming the automakers for allegedly not installing anti-theft devices such as engine immobilizers in their cars. Alderman Khalif Rainey said the automakers are “directly responsible” for the uptick in crime and that “it’s time to fix the problem they created.”

    Also forcing people to give birth to babies with birth defects (Down syndrome etc) seems crazy to me as well. I bet 99% of people would want to abort in that case.

    But if you allow abortion against only certain types of peoples then you there is the claim of eugenics and discrimination etc.
