As Joe Biden’s administration continues to crumble and his grasp on realty seems ever more distant, it’s a revelation to know that some people think he’s doing a fine job as leader of the U.S. and, by extension, the free world.
Consider my sister. She has a Ph.D. in psychology and is a counselor with offices in New York and New Haven. She can discuss at length literature, sociology, human relations, movies, and so on. As is typical with those on the Left, her political blind spots are beyond glaring.
Sagacious and Sparkling
In my sister’s world, Joe Biden has served with distinction during his 48 years in Washington. He never took money for pay-to-play schemes from China, Russia, Kazakhstan, Romania, or Ukraine and certainly did not take bribes over at the last two decades. According to my sister, the thoroughly corrupt Biden family has never profited by even one dime – not Hunter, not James – as a result of Joe’s position as vice president and, before that as a senator.
Keep in mind, many of the alleged 81,000,000 or so ‘voters’ for Biden are like my sister. Inextricably ensconced in the liberal media bubble, they are steadfast in ‘what they know.’ They could easily visit alternative news sites for greater perspective, but they never do, thus creating a self-imposed information iron curtain.
In my sister’s world, Joe Biden never cheated in college, and didn’t plagiarize. He didn’t support the 1994 crime bill which essentially made black males walking targets. In her world, Joe Biden never uttered a racial comment that was less than desirable, and certainly never said things such as:
“I tell you if you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black,” (May, 2020); “Poor kids are just as bright and talented as white kids,” (August, 2019); “We’ve got to recognize that the kid wearing a hoodie may very well be the next poet laureate and not a gangbanger,” (June, 2019); “They’re gonna put y’all back in chains.” (August, 2012); Obama is “the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean,” (February, 2007); and so many other such statements.
Not in Partnership With Obama
In my sister’s world Joe Biden had no part in Obama’s countless scandals or Obama’s self-professed ignorance of them. The Obama/Biden administration claimed to have no knowledge of the ‘Fast and Furious’ scandal; Black Panther voter intimidation; Veterans Administration scandals; NSA spying on German, French, and Japanese heads of state; and NSA spying on reporters and U.S. citizens.
In my sister’s world, Joe Biden was innocent and unaware of the IRS ploy to destroy tens of thousands of emails sought by the House Oversight Committee; the 21.5 million social security numbers hacked from OPM; and the EPA and other agencies paying poor performers not to work, for years, as their cases winded through respective federal bureaucracies.
In my sister’s world, however, anything that Donald Trump did, even somewhat on par with that of Joe Biden, is a crime, punishable by life in prison, if not death. Meanwhile, she is completely oblivious to Trump’s accomplishment, like, say, the lowest unemployment in 35 years, the lowest minority unemployment in history, the lowest minority youth unemployment in history, the lowest female unemployment in 75 years, an across-the-broad increase in wages, tax cuts for middle class, the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement, and other trade deals.
Also the Abraham Accords, other Middle East peace agreements, increased military strength, no wars, the U.S Space Force, a restored VA, reduced danger of conflict with North Korea, China tariffs, 400 miles of new and restored border wall, a secure border, decreased illegal immigration, no domestic terror attacks, prison reform, the ‘Right To Try’, lowering the cost of insulin, low gas prices, energy independence, growing the U.S. economy, and bringing back manufacturing, to cite a tiny fraction of his accomplishments.
The Hair Sniffer-in-Chief
Biden’s major missteps in the Middle East and de facto approval of FBI and DOJ corruption sails right over her head. She has no clue about how Biden enabled China to wreak havoc on U.S. power and influence worldwide. In my sister’s world, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are as pure as the driven snow. They are ideologically correct, or close enough, and that’s all that really counts.
In my sister’s world, Joe Biden does not invade the space of girls or women, does not go around sniffing their hair, and does not touch them inappropriately, and he did not take showers with his 5-year old daughter. He is merely a sweet, old ‘Uncle Joe’ kind of guy.
Tara Reade doesn’t exist in my sister’s world and Joe Biden never tried to rape her. Reade is a liar and a glory seeker. While Biden himself said, “believe the woman,” my sister, every time, succumbs to the New York Times, Washington Post, and Atlantic Monthly view of realty. After all, they retain only trusted reporters who dig for the facts, and objectively present them. The Times amazingly found “no pattern of abuse” related to Biden and the women he has abused.
Likewise, to my sister, Rachel Maddow and all the rest of the MSNBC staff, and Wolf Blitzer, Anderson Cooper, Jake Tapper, and the entire CNN staff are dedicated professionals who seek the truth no matter where the chips fall.
Lucid and Focused
In my sister’s world, Joe Biden is lucid and coherent. His exceedingly few, highly scripted press conferences are the model of competence and credibility. To my sister, Biden makes sense every time he speaks. He is no presidential puppet controlled by handlers. He is his own man.
Indeed, Biden knew that he was the man America wanted. Biden didn’t campaign heavily because he didn’t want to spread Covid-19 to his hundreds of followers. Also, because he had the election locked up, why bother to challenge President Trump, who consistently drew crowds of 30,000 or more?
In my sister’s world, Biden would never cause inflation or supply chain shortages. His weakness did not encourage Putin to invade Ukraine. Biden would never prompt a major crisis on our southern border. He wouldn’t think of tearing down the wall and allowing all manner of immigrants to flood into our land, sinking us financially, medically, economically, morally, and spiritually.
And, well, Joe’s just a good guy, a true American, and you need to realize that.
