A question for our fellow Americans who hated President Trump (my President!) so much you elected the sad spectacle we saw at the National embarrassment called euphemistically a “press conference.”
Happy now? Feel really good about yourself now that you have elected a really pathetic, addled, dementia-stricken corrupt old person (I can say that as I am much older than he is) to be “Leader of the Free World”? With his doddering, shaky finger on the nuclear button?
I am certain that Xi and Putin are applauding your “enlightened” choice—and thanking you for making it so much easier for them!
Somehow, America will survive, in spite of colossal mistakes such as those on display at that sickening “performance”, because of one simple truth: God Bless America!
In true Bidenesque fashion, I “borrowed” the title from a great piece appearing in spectator.us, briefly summarizing the wonderful decision by the Governor of Texas to lift all restrictions on citizens, as our governor, Ron DeSantis did some time ago, including the truly inane “mask mandate” which stopped making any sense whatsoever a long time ago, according to, as all the leftists like to put it, “the science!”
Specifically, Abbott ordered an end to restrictions, after Wednesday March 10, on the right of businesses to define the conditions of interaction with customers. Any business now can decide how it wants to operate. Less substantively but more important in the symbolic sense, he said he was lifting the state-imposed requirement to wear a face-mask in public. Businesses can still require masks, but who wants to be the only shop in town policing facial appearance? Abbott cited the falling rate of coronavirus spread and lauded the widespread availability of vaccines. ‘People and business,’ the governor said, ‘don’t need the state telling them how to operate.’
Of course, the usual suspects howled and shrieked, exclaiming, for example, that his decision was “reckless”, this coming from that icon of virtue, the totally failed governor of the totally failed State of California:
Oh, yes, they do!, plenteous Democratic party figures and health officials shouted. Ex-presidential candidate Robert Francis (Beto) O’Rourke charmingly notified the world that Abbott was issuing ‘a death warrant for Texans’. The county judge of Dallas, a Democrat, tweeted: ‘You should focus on what doctors, facts and science say is safe; not on what Gov. says is legal.’ California governor Gavin Newsom, who’s now infamous for acting as if the rules he imposes don’t apply to him, called Abbott ‘absolutely reckless’.
Whether Dr. Fauci and his legions of petty autocrats like it or not, their authoritarian regime is coming to an end, with states like our new home state of Florida and Texas and South Dakota leading the way.
No better way to sum how happy that makes me than the words by the author of the quoted piece:
It may have become a trite and overused phrase, but we do live in very strange times, when a painfully stricken person not in command of whatever cognitive abilities he may have left with the title “President of the United States of America” while every person with a functioning mind knows he cannot possibly be making decisions as serious as that involving bombing another sovereign Nation. I have tried doing some perhaps-not-rigorous enough research to see if there have been any serious analyses making an attempt to at least make an educated guess as to who is pulling the big lever(s) behind the curtain, but have come up empty handed. Like many of us, I have winced at the clips of “The President” mumbling and stumbling through public remarks, like those he made yesterday in Houston, and the pain and embarrassment one feels has nothing to do with partisan politics and everything to do with simple humanity, not to mention a feeling approaching rage at how family members can be so power hungry as to put one of their elders through this public humiliation.
I have seen it suggested, and have suggested it myself, that Susan Rice is the major force either making, or behind, the major decisions. I also saw recently suggestions that Ron Klain, Chief of Staff, was in the thick of some of the decision making.
I have been struck by the somewhat benign attitude about what I consider an extremely dangerous and perilous vacuum in what our Founding Fathers designed to be the “energetic Executive” with jokes and nicknames (the gentleman from Madame Tussauds) about a situation over which Xi and Putin are assuredly licking their murderous chops.
Does anyone have anything to offer on who is actually occupying the most powerful office in the world?
