Biden Stumbles, Fumbles & Bumbles As Country Burns
Biden Stumbles, Fumbles & Bumbles As Country Burns
Our country is screwed, or as close to it as we’ve been in a very long time. President Joe Biden, someone who has spent decades in Washington DC, admits he’s having trouble adjusting to life in our nation’s capital. He’s become the master of ruling by executive order instead of letting Congress do its job. His performance at his one and only press conference since taking office has a number of people questioning his ability to perform his duties as president. And now we have confirmation from Jen Psaki that he plans to erode our Second Amendment rights even more through–drum roll, please–more executive orders. How do you support an administration that seems hell-bent on destroying the nation you love?
According to NBC News, Biden has fled the Capital six out of 10 weekends since taking office. This during a so-called pandemic. This during one of the worst border crises in our nation’s history. Instead of setting the example for our nation, instead of showing us he has our backs, he runs home where he can relax with his grandchildren.
By the way, these are grandchildren who do not live with him. Tell me, Mr. President, how is it you can see your family and spend time with them when the rest of the nation is being told they can’t be with their kids and grandkids?
I wish that was the worst of it. If it was, perhaps so many Americans wouldn’t be wondering if our nation can survive four years of a Biden Administration–assuming he manages to serve all four years of the term.
But what do you do when the president ignores the Constitution? He might call Xi Jinping and Vladimir Putin autocrats but his actions prove he is as well. Or at least that he wants to be one. Why else would he rely on executive orders instead of letting the members of Congress represent their districts, propose, debate and enact legislation? He has control, at least on paper, of both the House and the Senate. Does he not trust his own party to do his bidding?
If he did, why did his press secretary, Jen Psaki, confirm he plans to use executive orders to further limit our Second Amendment rights? There are already several gun control measures up for consideration by Congress. Is Biden trying to move from president to dictator by cutting out our legislative body?
Or maybe he simply doesn’t remember we are a nation built upon a constitution, one that grants its citizens certain rights and redresses. I dislike raising that sort of question, but it has to be asked. . . especially after his press conference this week.
This performance is especially concerning considering the “cheat sheet” Biden had for the presser.
The President of the United States was armed with a picture book of friendly reporters to call on and with what appeared to be prepared answers, but he still could barely make it through his first press conference,” said [Rep. Ronny] Jackson.
Jackson, a former White House physician, continued:
If President Biden cannot handle questions from his cheerleaders in the White House press corps, then it is concerning to think about how he represents the American people when speaking to foreign leaders. . . Politics aside, this should concern every American who wants to know that their President is fit for duty and in control.”
If that doesn’t scare you, it should.
It should also have you asking why the Democrats allowed him to be their nominee in the first place.
But it gets better–or worse, depending on your point of view.
During the presser, Biden called on 10 reporters. According to some reports, not only were these reporters pre-selected but their questions known ahead of time. This gave Biden, or his handlers, a chance to prepare responses in advance. Even then, Biden appeared confused and lost at times.
When asked about this and about why Fox News hasn’t been called on once by the President, Psaki did her best to dodge and weave, finally saying she was calling on Peter Doocy. Hmm, maybe there’s something in the water at the White House. Apparently, Psaki thinks she is the president.
Doocy calls out Psaki for having "never been on" Joe Biden's pre-selected "list" of journalists to call on, dating back to the campaign: "I'm just curious if that is official administration policy."

Who is she trying to protect and why?
I could go on, but I will leave you with this. During his press conference, Biden said “politics is the art of the possible.” That phrase isn’t unique to him. In fact, if you are a fan of the work of Andrew Lloyd Webber, it probably sounds familiar and it should. That’s the title of a song from his musical “Evita”, based on the life of Eva Peron.
If you study the lyrics, you’ll see an eerie resemblance between the song and how too many liberals act these days. They see politics as “the art of the possible”, not as the duty to represent the best interests of their constituents.
Joe Biden might be our president, but we have a duty to demand answers from him, from his administration and from those politicians on Washington doing their best to prevent us from being heard.
Look at the Constitution, especially at the Bill of Rights, and think about how many of them Biden has either said he wants to limit or has already attempted to do so through executive orders. There may be one–ONE–he doesn’t want to either change or do away with.
If he is unfit for office, and the evidence is mounting that he is, we must make clear to our senators and representatives that their duty to us and to the country is to demand answers and, if necessary, to take action. We, and they, cannot continue to sit still as Biden flees the capital while the nation burns.
