Biden and His Snark of the Union
Biden and His Snark of the Union
Last night, President Joe Biden climbed out of his secure bunker somewhere deep beneath the White House to address the nation. He stood behind a podium not to address the nation and give his State of the Union speech. Nor was he there to answer questions from the media. No, he was there to present his own rather warped and irrational take on the events of the last year. As he did, it became abundantly clear POTUS has succumbed to one of the worst cases of Trump Derangement Syndrome to date. Bear with me as we go through his speech and try to find some semblance of truth and reality in it.
For a full transcript of his speech, check here.
Picture this. The stage was set. The podium was situated at the end of the flag lined corridor. Cameras were focused on the door beyond where POTUS would appear. A mask-wearing aide appeared and placed what looked to be notes on the podium and then stepped away. And the nation waited, wondering when POTUS would appear.
Finally, the doors opened and Biden appeared. His military escort peeled off immediately, moving out of frame. The cameras lovingly focused on their hero as he moved robotically down the corridor, masked, serious, knowing he would avoid the possible minefield of answering questions from the media. This was his show and by God he was going to do his best to tell us how wonderful he’s been these past few months since his inauguration.
Good evening my fellow Americans. Tonight, I’d like to talk to you about where we are as we mark one year since everything stopped because of this pandemic.
Well, he didn’t screw up his opening sentence, but things immediately went downhill. I don’t know about you, but I sure as hell don’t need anyone telling me were I am a year after St. Fauci and his disciples decided to close down our country. The pandemic didn’t stop everything. Power made politicians did.
And guess who those politicians were.
A year ago, we were hit with a virus that was met with silence and spread unchecked, denials for days, weeks, then months.
Wow, either my memory is going or I’ve been living in an alternate universe from Biden and company. Trump didn’t jump on the panic wagon along with some of the others in Washington or elsewhere around the country. He wanted to find out more about the virus, where it came from, what the science was behind it. He understood that shutting down the country would be economic suicide. He also understood it was not the time to start usurping state and local power.
But let’s move on and see what else good ole Joe had to say.
Photos and videos from 2019 feel like they were taken in another era. The last vacation, the last birthday with friends, the last holiday with extended family.
Except it wouldn’t be like that without the Dem’s policies of doing all they can to dissuade families who don’t live together from gathering, even if they wear their masks and observe social distancing. It was, on the whole, Biden’s party that subjected how many thousands of elderly and infirm in nursing homes to what turned out to be death sentences because they sent Covid patients there.
Gee, and what about the difference in how Washington D. C. looks now and what it looked like then? I think it’s quite telling that our nation’s capitol was open and inviting to the people of this nation under Trump but now, under the “kinder, gentler administration” of Gropin’ Joe, it is a militarized zone with fences and barbed wire in place to keep the riff-raff out.
While it was different for everyone, we all lost something — a collective suffering, a collective sacrifice, a year filled with the loss of life and the loss of living for all of us. But in the loss, we saw how much there was to gain in appreciation, respect, and gratitude. Finding light in the darkness is a very American thing to do.
Wait, what? We all lost something and then he says “a collective suffering, a collective sacrifice, a year filled with the loss of life and the loss of living for all of us.” That makes absolutely no sense. I don’t know about you, but I didn’t lose a “collective suffering” or any of the rest of it.
I know, I know. Someone’s going to say his speechwriters simply used the wrong punctuation. He meant to say we all lost something and that we all suffered his laundry list that followed. But that’s NOT what he said. It’s NOT what they wrote. The only thing I will agree with in that entire paragraph is this past year has shown me how much there is to gain–and how much we’ve lost.
Except I guarantee my idea of what there is to gain in now way matches his. I know we have a great deal to gain–and regain–when it comes to our freedoms, in our right to work the jobs we love, in our children’s right to attend school and learn.
In their need to be with other children and other adults besides their immediate families.
I know it’s been hard. I truly know.
Oh, wow. Biden is trying to be empathetic. He knows it’s been hard. Riiight. He knows how hard it’s been just like Bernie and the other Dems on Capitol Hill who go home at night to their expensive apartments or homes with their line-in help and salaries or retirements paid by our tax dollars.
Pull the other one, Joe.
No, wait. Don’t. That’s just ewwwww!
Biden went on to remind us about that infamous little card he carries in his pocket. Except it’s not a card. He admitted it’s his daily schedule. And on the back of it he supposedly keeps the number of Americans who have died from Covid.
As of now, total deaths in America, 527,726. That’s more deaths than in World War I, World War II, the Vietnam War and 9/11 combined.
Now, I’ll admit that’s the point where I almost threw my laptop against the wall. That sounded even more out of the realm of possibility than his earlier comments. So I went to my hand-dandy search engine to check. The number of Americans who died in WWII according to figures provided by the National World War 2 Museum in New Orleans is 407,316. An additional 5,662 Merchant Marines died. According to Wikipedia, 116, 516 Americans died in World War I. Vietnam saw American deaths to the tune of 58,209. 2,977 people, not counting the terrorists, died on 9/11 and many more have died since then as a result of the attacks that day.
By my math, that means 590,680 Americans died in the three wars (okay, Vietnam was technically not a “war”) and on 9/11. If I’m not mistaken, that is almost 70k people more than have “died” from Covid. Honestly, the difference is a great deal higher considering how so many cases have been listed as Covid when the patient died of things like, oh, gunshot wounds.
But Biden’s here to tell us the truth. He said so, so it must be true.
They were husbands, wives, sons and daughters, grandparents, friends, neighbors, young and old. They leave behind loved ones, unable to truly grieve or to heal, even to have a funeral. But I’m also thinking about everyone else who lost this past year to natural causes, by cruel fate of accident or other disease. They, too, died alone. They, too, leave behind loved ones who are hurting badly.
And why were they alone? Because St. Fauci and friends said loved ones couldn’t be there to comfort their loved ones as they neared their times of death. And how many died because of policies promulgated by the likes of Biden’s best bud Randy Andy Cuomo? Funny how POTUS didn’t say anything about that, isn’t it?
Maybe worst of all a loss of hope. Watching a generation of children who may be set back up to a year or more because they’ve not been in school because of their loss of learning.
And why have we lost hope? Could it be because Biden and his administration keep moving the goal posts and ripping the rug of hope out from under us? How many times have we heard if we reach this particular goal only to have CDC or Fauci come back and tell us they’ve changed their minds? First it was two weeks wearing masks and we’d have things under control. Then a month. Then a quarter. Six months. A year. Now St. Fauci says it may be another year–or more–before our lives return to normal.
Does anyone believe him or any of the Biden Administration that backs him?
The fact Biden dared bring out children into this is insulting to us and to them. The only reason they are out of school and have been for so long is because of the rules Fauci and his CDC cohorts have imposed and that states have felt forced to adopt. Add in the fact the federal government hasn’t seen fit to stand up to teachers unions who have refused to return to the classroom, some even after receiving the vaccine. No, Mr. President–and I use that term loosely–the only one who has let our children down is you.
Look, we know what we need to do to beat this virus. Tell the truth. Follow the scientists and the science. Work together. Put trust and faith in our government to fulfill its most important function, which is protecting the American people. No function more important.
OMG. How did he manage to say this with a straight face? Could it be because he didn’t understand what he was reading? Perhaps it’s because he’s had so much botox he can no longer show emotion. Or maybe he just doesn’t give a damn. Whatever the reason, the simple fact it Biden and his advisors have been telling us to follow the science since before the election. Guess what? That science keeps changing, keeps telling us different things. Is it any wonder we’re tired of the lies, the dithering and the eroding of our rights and our quality of life?
How in hell is the Biden Administration protecting the country when its policies are leading to further economic ruin?
My fellow Americans, you’re owed nothing less than the truth.
Wow, he’s finally said something else I agree with.
[H]ere is the truth. The only way to get our lives back, to get our economy back on track, is to beat the virus. . . But this is one of the most complex operations we’ve ever undertaken as a nation in a long time.
Ah, there it is. The But. You knew there had to be one.
We’re to be grateful he’s putting us on “a war footing” to beat the virus.
He gave us a “comprehensive” plan to beat the virus on his first day in office. Funny, he doesn’t say it was pretty much the same plan already in place under the Trump Administration. Nor does he admit that he’s taking credit for all the work the Trump Administration did to not only encourage drug companies to work on a vaccine but that it also pushed to streamline and speed up and approval process so we didn’t have to wait the usual years before the FDA gave the greenlight.
No, he’d have us believe all this happened after he took office.
Two months ago, the country — this country didn’t have nearly enough vaccine supply to vaccinate all or anywhere near all of the American public, but soon we will. We’ve been working with vaccine manufacturers, Pfizer, Moderna, Johnson & Johnson, to manufacture and purchase hundreds of millions of doses of these three safe, effective vaccines.
I guess everything just happened overnight once Trump was no longer in office. It was a miracle. A miracle I tell you. Just ask Joe.
Hey, if you’re “lucky” maybe he’ll lay hands on you and cure you of your conservatism.
Here’s the kicker and it is buried deep into his speech, almost at the end. Probably so no one would actually hear it. They’d have either fallen asleep or turned him off.
Fourth, in the coming weeks, we will issue further guidance on what you can and cannot do once fully vaccinated to lessen the confusion, to keep people safe, and encourage more people to get vaccinated.
We’ve spent the last year being told that once you were vaccinated, you could start returning to normal. Once the majority of the country was vaccinated, we’d see life returning to what it once was. If that’s the case they why are we going to be told what we can and cannot do once vaccinated? Why especially if every adult will be eligible for the vaccination after May?
The answer is easy and extremely troubling. They aren’t planning on letting us return to normal. That doesn’t fit their plans. They want to break us, break our spirits and break what the United States of America stands for.
But if we’re good little serfs and do as our rightful overlords tell us, we can have a small gathering in our backyards on July 4th to celebrate the day when we used to know what the word “independence” really meant.
