It’s a mystery. Perhaps no one knows. Perhaps a group of people we never heard of? We have a president that his staff tightly guards so he does not speak in public, address complex issues or answer non-approved questions. And when he does speak in public, he needs notes on the issues. He regularly gives muddled answers and then makes a brisk emphatic statement to look strong. Even when he meets privately with Republicans to find common ground, it appears staff has the power to reverse his decisions. The latest example is Biden’s meeting with seven Republican Senators on his $2.2 trillion infrastructure plan. Several Senate Republican negotiators indicated after the meeting that a plan in the range of $1 trillion to $1.2 trillion would be acceptable. What Biden agreed to, however, is now in question. Who changed the president’s mind in literally minutes?
It is a mystery as to how a country of 328 million people could elect a seventy-eight-year-old man that does not seem capable of comprehending the complexity of the world or the intricacies of the issues confronting his administration.
Is Joe Biden making any decisions, other than nodding his head so he gives the semblance of functioning as the constitutionally elected decisionmaker? The Biden mirage started in his first few days in office by issuing a massive number, 52 Executive Orders and Presidential Memoranda requiring only a signature while offering the press a photo-op to look as if he is leading.
It is difficult to believe that even a smart transition team could prepare that many documents between the election and being sworn into office. Such preparation was a sophisticated game plan that had to be prepared by special interests, years in advance. Alternatively, since the Democrats were certain they would win in 2016, maybe it’s a Hillary Clinton plan that Biden adopted. She had eight years during the Obama administration to develop it?
While this is wild speculation on my part, it was weird how Biden won. Keep in mind he lost all the early primaries finishing 4th in Iowa, 5th in New Hampshire, and 2nd in Nevada. In two previous runs for president, he never won a primary and never received 1% of the vote.
Did magic really happen when Congressman Clyburn endorsed Biden? Or was it a very intentional deal that gave Joe Biden exactly what he wanted – the title of president for his tombstone in return for letting an unknown power control the presidency?
Reports had the “wheels coming off the Biden campaign” as the South Carolina primary debate was underway. Biden was stumbling and fumbling in the first part of the debate. Clyburn reached Biden during a break in the debate and reminded him of his commitment, which obviously he forgets – to announce he would nominate minority women to the U.S. Supreme Court if elected president. Biden merely mimicking Clyburn’s wishes during the debate, earned him Clyburn’s endorsement. The other leading candidates, other than Bernie Sanders, immediately vanished. Biden easily won the Democrat nomination.
From the position of long-term, historic loser to being elected president on the endorsement of one man is the scenario as close to magic as can occur in politics.
Perhaps Joe Biden won on his promise to unify the country? Unfortunately, from the moment he took office he abandoned that promise and set out to aggressively further divide the nation. He immediately opened the southern border to anyone, including gangs, drug smugglers, human sex traffickers, and people with coronavirus in the middle of a pandemic. All actions are contrary to majority public opinion.
As to discovering the cause of the pandemic, information desperately needed to prevent future pandemics, Biden firmly refused to press China on its origins, leaving China free of all responsibility. When reality started to bite, Biden capitulated to mounting evidence that the lab in Wuhan might be a source of information. Following Biden’s lead, Facebook courageously withdrew its ban on discussing the origins’ of Covid-19. Who makes these decisions?
Polls find 79% of parents want in-school learning for students. Biden promised that would occur in his first 100 days. Unfortunately, Biden sided with the teachers’ unions to keep many schools closed for a year while promoting the preaching of Critical Race Theory as part of the curriculum.
Biden promised to be the “labor union president” yet on energy policy, he canceled the permits for the Keystone XL pipeline which reduced long-term oil supplies and put thousands out of labor union workers out of work. Hackers took out the Colonial pipeline, dramatizing the fragility in our energy supply system. Biden however, continued to reduce oil and gas supplies, an action that only helps Russia sell more oil and gas. Why?
Biden’s obsession with massive spending obstructs analysis of China’s surging economy, its goal of surpassing the U.S. as the world’s top economy. Foreigners commit cyber espionage against our government on a regular basis while we invest taxpayer money in achieving racial equity in science, and Teachers’ Unions push to dumb down math so poor achieving students feel better about themselves.
These policies are antithetical to most Americans. So why is a president who ran as an uniter being so divisive? Is this the work of Biden, if so, we really didn’t know you Joe for those fifty years in public life?
A more realistic answer might be the obvious one. Big Business, usually Republican, and Big Tech and Big Labor, usually Democrat, combined efforts to defeat Trump, a threat to their business models. Why? This answer may be in front of our eyes. Big Business wants open access to China, its cheap or even slave labor, and a market of over a billion consumers. Big Tech wants to avoid the promised Trump regulatory clampdown for its censorship of conservative viewpoints. By remaining free of liability for its control of the Internet, Big Tech is free to misinform, mislead, propagandize and censor based on its political goals. And, combined Big Business and Big Tech have the power to ensure any proposed tax reform to pay for Biden’s dreams, is nothing but a dream. Corporations and the wealthy have reduced their taxes since Reagan was president; those reductions will continue.
Big Labor wanted cash to shore up bankrupt pension funds drained by union corruption.
In the Time Magazine article The Secret History of the Shadow Campaign That Saved the 2020 Election, the author proudly describes the inner workings of a little-noticed cabal between the U.S. Chamber of Commerce (representing big business, including Big Tech) and the AFL-CIO. (Big labor). The cabal’s goal was to secretly “…influence voter perceptions, change voting rules and laws, steer media coverage, and control the flow of information” [received by voters], to elect Democrats.
Based on the efforts and contributions of Big Business, Big Tech, and Big Labor, the cabal achieved its purpose – it changed the voting system by changing, in the middle of election season, laws and regulations governing the election, generating negative media coverage of Republicans, and controlling the flow of information voters were able to receive. To this day, social media prohibits many types of political information from conservatives that it views as objectionable. In an opinion piece by James Freeman of the Wall Street Journal, he notes “…that the most consequential use of this censorship tool in 2020 was an abusive blocking of true information.”
Big Business secured trillions in subsidies and 4 – 7 trillion dollars in interest-free money from the Fed. Big Tech preserved its immunity from lawsuits, leaving it free to continue manipulating and censoring the flow of information in the United States. The unions received the bailout money. The Teachers union secured one year of no-school days for teachers while inflicting psychological harm on many students. The Bigs won!
So, again, who runs the United States? Who will make decisions should China take over Taiwan? Who is pushing Biden to give Iran billions in cash to ease its financial hardships as it builds nuclear bombs and flies drones over Afghanistan to disrupt U.S. withdrawal? Who is responsible for allowing thousands of drug or sex traffickers into the nation? Does anyone in the Biden administration care about the massive national debt?
The American people will never know the answer to – who is running the U.S. – until mainstream media decides to look at the Elephant in the room.
