Seeking Something Positive from Biden Administration

Filed under: Israel — qwertster @ 2:59 AM

We have been attempting to find nice, warm, fuzzy and pleasant news from the flurry of Executive Orders signed by President Biden and the general direction of the body politic operating out of Washington DC with absolutely no success. We might be able to claim that the news sure appears to be far more forgiving in accepting efforts from the White House. Were we to go by much of the mainstream media coverage of these early few weeks of the Biden administration, we would likely be wildly joyous and simply gushing in our praise of the unbelievable intellect, abilities and direction being taken. Unfortunately, we have this, what many call distressing, ability to find alternate news forums which are painting a far different picture where the swamp has reinfected the White House with Congress all too willing to follow every lead coming out of the Biden administration.

At this point we find it necessary to place some of the blame with the failure of the Trump administration to complete his greatest challenge; draining the swamp. We believe even The Donald was and remains incapable of draining the swamp for many reasons, last of which is that the Washington DC Mall is built on lands reclaimed from an actual swamp. The political swamp consists of thousands of departments filled with employees by the thousands making up the self-replicating bureaucracy. Just as it took Hercules to end the terror of the Lernaean Hydra in the mythological story, it will take an effort at least as long as the seventy-plus years it took to establish, and it will fight for its life every inch, employee and position. It is more likely the Lernaean Hydra of a bureaucracy will eventually self-destruct; it is simply a matter of time. But for the time being, the swamp is back in its full glory, or is that gory.

Back to Biden who is fulfilling everything he promised in his campaign. The problem many people are having is that they are trying to match the efforts by President Biden to his campaign for the Presidency. That is the wrong campaign as that was designed to get him elected and had to not scare anybody, thus Biden ran as an undefined Democrat which allowed for people to place their desires as the Biden policy. Any undefined major party candidate will almost always poll against a named candidate for the other party as having a campaigning candidate defines where they stand. The only campaign which President Biden actually spoke his heart was in his campaign for the Democrat nomination. During that campaign there was only one candidate more left than Biden; it was not Bernie Sanders but rather Kamala Harris. We pray for the health of President Biden every day as things could be worse.

What is the most frightening reality for the next two years is if the Democrats can press their thin majority with a 50/50 Senate tie vote decided by the Vice President, then they will be capable of passing everything from candidate for the Democrat nomination Biden’s campaign promises. Hold on, it may be a wild ride into places unknown in America. We will offer one admonition, do not allow government provided single payer, Medicare for all healthcare as this would lead to even higher healthcare costs pushing up taxes and lowering the bar forcing all but those making minimum wage will be taxed despite a generally lesser level of service with longer waiting lines. If government healthcare becomes unavoidable, please seek out a workable system which retains some level of choice and competition as has been accomplished in Israel. But we are talking about America, an idea which still motivates people everywhere as she is a nation beyond any which preceded with a possible exception for China.

Watch China and Iran and whether or not President Biden folds before their pressures, and pressures are guaranteed if we have read things correctly. We heard of no strong response to China overflying Taiwan and Iran demanding the dropping of all sanctions before they will come to the table only to refuse to comply with any restrictions going forward being the other great challenge. Then there will be the demands for Israel to once more give land to Arabs for another Arab state. Apparently, when the world led by Britain and the United Nations demanded the Jews give away their promised lands east of the Jordan River, an area making up over three-quarters of the total land mandate, that was not enough. We expect little if anything from the Biden administration or from the majority of the Democrat party. This is actually a good thing as standing largely on one’s own is always a positive step.

Will the Woke Ever Awaken

Filed under: Israel — qwertster @ 2:33 AM

The first thing we need to note is that the public education systems in much of the nation, at least the major cities, are turning out graduates who have been trained to be “woke” by repeated enforcement of the ecological and other indoctrinations. This is often done with handouts which are collected after class so nothing is available to take home as proof. Parents often reject the early complaints believing their child is having difficulty adjusting to school. The problem is any counselling following current trends is in line with the same program and all too often the parents may have fallen prey to the earliest cusp of these trends.  

To be “woke” one must first understand “intersectionality” which ties all of the approved causes together such that in for one, on for all; and also, those not included which are to be shunned and shamed by all means available. We have spoken about “intersectionality” at least once before in this rather long article. >. A truly “woke” individual does not make waves or attempt to stand out in virtually any way as “woke” individuals know that drawing attention one risks being outed with the bonus of probably not understanding why or what happened or when. Once being outed, it is next to impossible to return to the good graces of the “woke” community. Schools teach from the beginning that the class as a group is graded more than the individual and any complaints prove who is racist and deserving of special attention. Remember what we said about drawing attention. Grades are used to reward “woke” behavior and punish most individualism. By graduation, these unfortunates in the public schools have been eroded into a correct awareness based on a frame of social justice and racial justice. This includes the New York Times introduction to an education program now based on what they refer to as the 1776 lie and claim slavery was the basis for the founding of the United States and rejects that any real progress has been made to equalize society and give proper reparations for American Original Sin of Slavery! That is actually the emphasis to what they call American History, a far cry from the American History taught too long ago to mention.

The wonderful thing about being “woke” is that one need not think for themselves or be responsible for actions as long as they are supported by the “woke” political, “woke” Big Tech, “woke” Wall Street and the “woke” main financial backers, but we kind of repeated ourselves with that last one. The horrible thing about being “woke” is one has become so afraid to think that doing so becomes next to impossible and should one actually become “awakened” and thinking for oneself, then one will find being “woke” as worthless of their efforts any further. Winston Churchill is reputed to have stated, “If you are not a liberal at twenty, you have no heart. If you are not a conservative at forty, you have no brain.” Perhaps we can borrow on the above quote and coin its modern version and be quoted here stating, If you are not “woke” by the time you are twenty, your education failed. If you have not “awakened” by forty, you have no mind of your own.

Jobs, Jobs, It’s All About Jobs

Filed under: Israel — qwertster @ 2:13 AM

President Biden has been, what can only be described as, on a tear, writing Executive Orders. There was even a table of contents informing us of the excuse of the day which listed; Monday for Buy American, Tuesday for Equity, Wednesday for Climate, Thursday for Health Care, and Friday for Immigration. Each day allowed for President Biden to enact a series of Executive Orders and when the week was done the heart of the Green New Deal was put in place without the messy need of Congress or hearings. These things needed to be completed immediately as we are in a state of emergency, or so we are instructed, attending to Anthropomorphic Climate Change and we must be forced to comply if we are to save the planet. But there was another subject which has appeared repeatedly coming forth from virtually every mouth speaking for the administration; “Jobs.”

When President Biden speaks about clean energy, he states he is, “thinking about jobs.” When he elaborates on immigration, he states he is, “thinking about jobs.” When President Biden expounds upon clean water, he states he is, “thinking about jobs.” When President Biden expands on his clean air programs, he states he is, “thinking about jobs.” When President Biden explains the rejoining of the Paris Climate Accords, he states he is, “thinking about jobs.” When President Biden states how America will reach zero vehicle emissions, he states he is, “thinking about jobs.” Even when President Biden praises the wonders of coming electric cars, solar panels, and all the rest of the build back better rhetoric, he states he is, “thinking about jobs.” If only Joe’s thoughts were guaranteed to come to fruition, then there would be plenty of good paying jobs. The unfortunate reality is that President Biden has been costing more and more American jobs with every passing day, even every passing Executive Order such as the ones closing down construction of the Keystone XL pipeline as well as the Southern Border Wall. But rest assured, Uncle Joe is, “thinking about jobs.”
