President Joe Biden is two thirds of the way through the first 100 days of his presidency. How is it going for him? Is it time yet to do a welfare check or do we wait until Day 100?
Inasmuch as the mainstream media might contort the truth, neither he nor his image makers can say it’s going peachy for Biden.
The Chinese told America in no uncertain terms last week that they don’t respect or fear what we in America have considered to be the greatest nation in the history of the world. The CCP sees America as weak. In Anchorage, the communist diplomats blistered Secretary of State Antony Blinken, humiliating the Biden Administration in its first big foray into stagecraft diplomacy.
The Chinese accused the U.S. of hypocrisy, of being a bully, and of horrible human rights problems at home. The Chinese are tired of the U.S. lecturing them about human rights. They have all the B-roll they need from the George Floyd riots to toss back in our faces.
For the past four years, the hype about America’s racism has been hammered on by the Left, a theme spoon fed and nurtured by the left-dominated media. That hammer is being used by the C.C.P., which accused the United States of “slaughtering” Blacks.
If our compromised news media and half of our elected lawmakers say we are an unredeemable, racist country, then we must be, and the Chinese need only refer to our Fourth Estate for corroboration.
The world’s leaders assessed the stress points of Biden-Harris Administration and found them soft. Russian President-for-Life Vladimir Putin trolled Biden, challenging him to a live-broadcast “conversation.” There must have been something in their January phone conversation that told the Russians listening in everything they need to know about Biden’s cognition.
“‘I want to invite President Biden to continue our discussion, but on the condition that we do it actually live,” Putin said to a reporter, in a broadcast. “I think this would be interesting for the Russian people, for the U.S. people, and for many other countries as well.”
Biden, of course, cannot accept that invitation, even though the White House has promised future communications would be “transparent and consistent.” He is too mentally incapacitated to put his garbled speech on full display to the world. This is a president who could not even deliver a State of the Union address in February.
Noteworthy, Putin never extended such a debate challenge to President Donald Trump.
Since Biden’s inauguration, America’s southern border turned into a sieve, with thousands of illegal immigrants flooding in and hundreds of children being trafficked daily into detention camps. The Administration just announced it will spend $86 million to house illegal immigrants in hotels along the border, and it will fly others to northern states along the Canadian border for processing.
An undeniable human disaster, the border now has thousands of pregnant women in line to get into America, where they can start their chain migration. Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas on Sunday said, incredibly, that “the border is closed” and at the same time that the U.S. will not turn “vulnerable children” away.
He also said that domestic ideologically driven terrorists are more of a threat to the U.S. than foreign terrorists.
The news media, the same one that mocked the wall that President Trump undertook, is not pursuing this humanitarian crisis at the border because they hope it will all be resolved. They hope this is just a short-lived migration.
As if to symbolize his crippled presidency, Biden stumbled not once, not twice, but three times while trying to get aboard Air Force One. That video is playing all over the world — and the memes spinning off from it are shaping the narrative of an America that is weakened.
The president had broken a bone in his foot in December after a fall at his home. But the visual of him falling while taking the stairs to the jet illustrates to world leaders what they already suspected, that America has installed a weak leader. So weak, that he can be toppled by the breeze, which is the White House’s official explanation of the falling-up incident.
While the disasters pile up on Biden-Harris, the media tells America only about the ones that cannot be easily concealed. We can see with our eyes the invasion at the border, so the media skims that story. We can see on Russian media the invitation by Putin for a debate. We witness on YouTube the humiliation of Secretary of State Antony Blinken in Anchorage. We see the faltering steps.
Our malfunctioning president has spent a lifetime as a politician and his muscle memory is relatively good for the theater of the presidency. He knows what needs to be presented outwardly because he had the catbird’s seat for eight years under Obama.
But age is a harsh taskmaster for all of us and thus, Biden is having a rough honeymoon, with a skinned shin and a couple of metaphorical black eyes to show for it. Thank goodness he has a sympathetic handmaid in the media giving him a soft landing for his trips, slips, and falls.
