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.

We’ve written about Biden’s love of the executive order. We’ve watched as his failed immigration policies have led to a border crisis that could have easily been avoided.

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.

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.

    I listened to the exchange between Doocy and Psaki and she was snarky to him in her retorts and not answers. In her world, she is winning and Doocy is the loser by a lot. That is to me the example of the imperial presidency and the court. The dual world exists where we can all agree that Biden is a nasty old fool incompetent in the job while the court sees their king in his finest robes. We are at the brink and I do not know that we can prevail.

      John, I’ll admit I had a very difficult time writing the post last night. Not because I don’t believe in everything I wrote but because I do. I love this country very, very much. I’m proud to call myself an American. So to see a president, either on his own or via his handlers, doing all he can to destroy the foundations the US is built upon hurts (and terrifies) me. To realize the media is complicit in what’s happening reminds me of the state-owned media of the Soviet bloc. I do believe we can prevail, but it is going to be a difficult road and one we must all take an active part in. We have to hold our politicians accountable. We have to make our voices heard. As much as I hate to say it, we may have to take more than a few pages out of the other side’s playbook.

  • George V says:

    Amanda, I think you give Biden too much credit. He is not composing and signing executive orders, he is not developing policy or anything of the sort. He has a staff that is telling him what needs to be done, that this or that is the right policy for the country, that this or that executive order is to fix things, especially those things screwed up by Trump or Republicans. Biden’s politics have always been fluid (i.e., crime) so this isn’t a stretch for him in his old age to be easily swayed on what positions to adopt.

    The question is who is actually setting policy now. Is it some group, maybe some Dem congressional leaders, maybe some of the appointees, or maybe people who work behind the scenes in the DNC? I don’t think we (the public) know who is running the executive branch of our government. I certainly don’t think it’s Biden.

    • George V says:

      Edit Sentence 2: Biden is indeed signing executive orders – he’s not originating them.

    • Amanda Green says:

      George, I agree. My gut tells me Biden is doing his own version of “Weekend at Bernie’s” and that infuriates me. It do so because those actually creating policy and using him as a front do not have the best interest of our country at heart. It also does so because if he is as bad off as some of us suspect, we are watching a case of elder abuse play out before our eyes. Still, there is the possibility he’s not as badly off as we suspect and is a willing participant in what’s happening. Either way, it is up to those of us who love this country to step up and let our voices be heard. We have to become not only willing but active participants in the legislative process through holding our elected officials’ feet to the proverbial fire and even running for office ourselves.

  • Quentin Q Quill says:

    Did you complain when Trump “fled” so often to play golf?

    • Amanda Green says:

      Ah, Quentin, I see your case of TDS hasn’t eased yet. But, to answer your question, I would have condemned Trump if he’d fled DC as much as Biden has the first 10 weeks of his administration. Here’s a hint, no recent president has been as absent as your pal Joe at the beginning of his administration.

  • Miles Fortis says:

    “Or maybe he simply doesn’t remember we are a nation built upon a constitution, one that grants its citizens certain rights……”

    Ms Green you’ve got that wrong.

    The Constitution DOES NOT grant the citizenry rights.
    It cedes certain powers from the people to government
    And, through the Bill of Rights, requires that the government protect PREXISTING rights and RESTRICTS government from misusing its powers against other rights.

    The Declaration of Independence makes this clear with:
    1 ” that all men….are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights,…”
    and
    2 “…That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men,…”

    As does the Preamble to the Bill of Rights:

    “THE Conventions of a number of the States, having at the time of their adopting the Constitution, expressed a desire, in order to prevent misconstruction or abuse of its powers, that further declaratory and restrictive clauses should be added: And as extending the ground of public confidence in the Government, will best ensure the beneficent ends of its institution……….”

    • Scott says:

      Well said MIles, far too many people have forgotten, or never learned that… And with it commonly being stated as granting rights, it’s far too easy to fall into that trap..

  • Dave says:

    My advice: grieve and leave. We are so far past the point of no return. Any 20th century history – especially Mao – will make that clear. Soon you will be unable to leave. From there, it doesn’t get better.

    • Scott says:

      To hell with that.. Leave is an option, but where to? A much preferred option would be to follow the lead of the Founding Fathers.. Stand up for your rights, whatever the cost… I wish we never found ourselves in this position, but here we are, and the Tree of Liberty is looking thirsty…

    Amanda, This is incorrect. The Constitution does not give us our rights, it limits what “government” can do to limit those rights. Or at least it is supposed to.

    We are a Republic with a Constitutionaly Limited government. Although these days it is getting harder to tell.
