Kakistocracy: name, government by the worst people; a form of government in which the worst people are in power.
The old saying goes that even a blind squirrel finds a nut once in a while. So you might think that over the course of a 50-year political career, the odds would dictate that Joe Biden, once in a blue moon, make the right decision — purely based on the odds. But you would be wrong. Biden stumbled and stumbled from one disastrous decision to the next. Disastrous, that is to say for America. Biden himself has prospered lavishly despite his blatant incompetence and corruption.
Biden’s long career in the Senate was based on being the credit card company man in Washington. While endlessly chanting that the working class was “his people,” Biden sponsored bills allowing bank issuers to charge huge interest rates and making it harder for working people to escape the credit trap by bankruptcy.
When Biden chaired the Senate Judiciary Committee, he turned Clarence Thomas’ confirmation into a political smear campaign that turned into a degenerate three-ring circus. In his first presidential campaign, he failed to secure a single percentage point before having to step down in the face of his past lies and blatant plagiarism. He literally stole a speech detailing the life story of a British politician. He ran again in 2008 but again failed to achieve even one percent of the vote.
When Barack Obama pulled him from the main trash heap to make him vice president, Biden first made a hash of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, squandering hundreds of billions on boondoggles and giveaways to fellow Democrats. A small portion of the reclaimed billions was spent on anything useful to America. Biden went on to manage our relations with China and Ukraine, pocketing untold millions for himself and his family by selling out America’s security interests.
By the time he ran for president again in 2020, he was a spent shell of his corrupt and incompetent former self, delivering dumb performances in the Iowa caucus and New York primary. Hampshire. When the Democratic establishment backed him to re-arrest Bernie Sanders, Biden was set up for the weirdest presidential campaign in modern history. As Donald Trump took the nation by storm with packed and enthusiastic rallies, Biden hunkered down in his basement, occasionally venturing out to speak with a few dozen voters seated in circles drawn on the floor.
For his vice-presidential choice, he chose – if you can believe it – an even more buffoonish candidate than him.
If it hadn’t been for Mark Zuckerberg’s buying and staffing of government election offices in swing states, and the media and Big Tech censorship of Biden family corruption, Biden would benefit now from his teenage years in Delaware, crawling on unsuspecting kids with Corn Pop threads and Arrests in South Africa.
Instead, the man with one of the most astonishing records of dismal failure in Washington was installed in the White House, and he stayed true to himself. As one of a hundred senators, then as vice president, there was a limit to the damage he could do. But as president, the chains were removed.
His first order of business was to strangle our oil and gas sector, relocating tens of thousands of well-paying jobs to Russia and the Middle East, as well as our energy independence. He opened our southern border and encouraged virtually unlimited illegal immigration – during a global pandemic.
He sponsored trillions of dollars in wasteful spending, pushing our national debt to over $31 trillion. Without two Democratic senators who had not yet lost their minds, it would have been even worse. As it stands, Biden has triggered the biggest one-year increase in inflation in 40 years.
Biden’s ‘defund the police’ rhetoric has delivered us a surge in violent crime in Democratic-run cities, while he has dismissed federal law enforcement on parents who oppose too vigorously to have their children indoctrinated with anti-white racism and LGBTQIA+ ideology.
It can truly be said that as president, Biden’s record of failures remains unblemished.
But now comes what could be the cornerstone of Biden’s long history of buffoonery and corruption. In Ukraine, we have an armed conflict that threatens to plunge the world into economic depression and raises the specter of nuclear war. Not only did Biden set the stage for this calamity when, as vice president, he was in charge of Ukraine policy and led Kyiv to believe NATO membership was in Ukraine’s future , but on the eve of the Russian invasion, he refused to admit that It was not. Then Biden almost admitted to Vladimir Putin — on live TV, no less — that NATO wouldn’t defend Ukraine if Russia chose to invade.
In the aftermath of the Russian invasion, Biden and his administration have crafted sanctions that seem almost designed to boomerang the fragile post-pandemic US and European economies, while forcing Russia into a deeper alliance with China.
With a US debt of over $31 trillion, Biden seems utterly oblivious to the US dollar’s perilous position as the world’s reserve currency and the consequences should that privileged position end.
Economists predict that food and gasoline will cost the average American household an extra $3,000 this year, and inflation threatens to push millions of lower-middle-income people into abject poverty.
And clumsy, corrupt Joe Biden is not yet halfway through his first — and please God, last — term.
