It was bound to happen--reality is like honey badger: it just doesn't care. Fox has an article that goes into some of the hard knocks reality has been dishing out. Interestingly, the article fails to mention what may be the hardest and most intractable knock of all--the highest inflation rate in 10 years.
Here's the link and an excerpt from the beginning that I found well put:
Battered Biden under siege as crises confound the White House
Remarkable 5 days of bad developments stretching from Israel to Mexican border, up East Coast via Colonial Pipeline
Israel is erupting, Americans are utterly confused when masks should be worn for COVID-19 protection and then there are the agita-inducing long lines for gasoline.
And that was just Tuesday.
A lot has changed in a matter of days.
Friday was supposed to be a glorious day for Biden. The latest employment numbers were set to be released, and economists were gushing that a million new jobs had likely been created in April by exuberant employers and their newly vaccinated workers.
His team no doubt was prepared to unleash Biden to perform a little victory dance at the White House celebrating the stupendous number. But the show had to be hastily revamped when the actual tally came in nearly three-quarters-of-a-million jobs lower than expected; just 266,000 jobs created and unemployment unexpectedly rising to 6.1%.
"You might think we should be disappointed," Biden said, which was indeed something people might think. ...
My question: who’s really running the show? We know it’s not really BiteMe; is the “Biden/Harris” admin a consensus admin - meaning Valjar/Obama/et al are the ones really pulling the strings?ReplyDelete
Training wheels came off fast. This country & the world seems to be coming apart with ever-increasing rapidity.
All the Chicoms/Ivans/Iranians need do is sit back & watch it splatter.
If the Charlie Foxtrot continues into the summer (a virtual certainty at this point), I am quite sure Iran and Chicoms will not just sit back. They have their sights on a lot of new toys, and there is no one manning the store.Delete
Bitter irony: Biden and his handlers decide that their first order of business is to undo everything Trump did. Unfortunately, they believed their own press clippings that said Trump had ruined the country. In actuality, things were going pretty darned well until Covid hit, but they were incapable of admitting that. So, they undid everything that was working and, voila, everything stopped working--pretty much all at once. 113 days to return to the Carter years.ReplyDelete
Not to run off with the topic but... WOW at the fuel situation in Florida today!!! Pre hurricane like buying and panic has wiped out supply completely in central Florida.ReplyDelete
No worries with the cost if you just can't get it.
Reality will never be permitted to intrude on the Dems' agenda.ReplyDelete
Here's the link to the story on the out of gas shooter:ReplyDelete
"Spectrum News NY1 reports that Muhammad was said to have been in his car when it ran out of fuel close in Starke due to gas station closures in Florida."
A clear win for Biden's energy policy!Delete
The more interesting question is which group or country will embarrass the US the most over the top in the next 6 months? My guess is the competition will be fierce.ReplyDelete
The timing of the gas line disruption is suspicious, but may be it’s just a coincidence.
> I am quite sure Iran and Chicoms will not just sit back.
Running a large organization is hard. It's harder when you are stupid.ReplyDelete
And reality can be very unforgiving.Delete
actually it's easier when you're stupid IMHO...I'm thinking of the President of Kruger Industrial Smoothing - Biden makes him look like some kind of business genius, surrounded by Costanza clonesDelete
"'His mental and physical condition cannot be ignored': More than 120 retired generals and admirals sign open letter questioning Biden's mental health and backing election fraud claims"
And then, of course:
"The effort drew immediate pushback from military members who lamented people who wore the uniform jumping into an organized political effort. "

Watched his presser on Colonial hacking this AM. He read from a teleprompter mounted below the camera, so never seemed to be “connecting” with anyone. When he took a question or two at the end, he looked at notes in his folder on the lectern, and at one time seemed to be listening to something as he spoke. Noticed dark-colored devices in both ears that I’ve never seen there before.ReplyDelete
That was another presser, and yes, he did seem rather blotto. At the Colonial Pipeline presser he was more alert (comparatively speaking) but, throughout the statement part, his eyes were focused below the camera. To keep him from having to look right and left to read teleprompters, they are using one of the teleprompters that attaches to a camera - in this case below the camera’s aperture.Delete
One rather morbidly funny moment came when a female reporter asked a question that had to be paragraphs long. Went on and on. His puzzlement was obvious. He ended up ignoring her question.
"seemed to be listening to" Obama , or ValJar?ReplyDelete
