In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR


Biden besieged by crises, some of his own making

From a piece Keith did for Fox News:

Israel is erupting, Americans are utterly confused when masks should be worn for COVID-19 protection and then there are the agita-inducing long lines for gasoline.

And that was just Tuesday.

A lot has changed in a matter of days.

Friday was supposed to be a glorious day for Biden. The latest employment numbers were set to be released, and economists were gushing that a million new jobs had likely been created in April by exuberant employers and their newly vaccinated workers.

His team no doubt was prepared to unleash Biden to perform a little victory dance at the White House celebrating the stupendous number. But the show had to be hastily revamped when the actual tally came in nearly three-quarters-of-a-million jobs lower than expected; just 266,000 jobs created and unemployment unexpectedly rising to 6.1%.

“You might think we should be disappointed,” Biden said, which was indeed something people might think. But the American Rescue Plan he signed into law in March “was designed to help us over the course of a year — not 60 days,” he said.

Far from being a disappointment, a jobs report that included 734,000 jobs fewer than expected was good news.

“Today, there is more evidence our economy is moving in the right direction,” Biden said. “This is progress. This is a testament to our new strategy,” he said. “We’ve got work to do, to state the obvious, we have work to do.”

You might think.

The jobs figures were just the first in a series of out-of-nowhere body blows hitting the president during a remarkable five days of bad developments that stretched from Israel to the Mexican border and up the East Coast via the Colonial Pipeline.

  1. I just read your entire article, Keith. EXCELLENT! It’s not just biden and his enablers that are in crisis, it’s the ENTIRE nation (and by extension the world) that is in crisis due to the incompetence and implementation of their diabolical far left extremist ideology!

    1. Totally agree. Keith’s article was a great summary of the multiple crises. Hopefully the article will get a lot of readers since it’s posted on both FOX and RCP.

  2. Another thing is lurking over the horizon. Inflation is on the way. That is when too many dollars are chasing too few goods. The 30 year Treasuries are going up. Not a good sign for the stock market. Today the Dow was down 667 which is 1.91%. The VIX is showing the volatility is going up. People are going to feel this a the pump and supermarket.

    1. Here in PA, we are already feeling this at the pump and the supermarket. We are going to feel it more as inflation worsens. The Federal Reserve is making thing worse through their current monetary policy. The adverse impact on our economy in terms of inflation, energy independence, job losses, etc., was highly predictable. The far left extremists made it very clear to the American public what they were going to do when they took control. They took control – by hook or by crook – so now they are implementing their agenda hence the results we are seeing and “feeling”. These Demoncrats MUST be thrown out in next year’s midterms!

  3. I just heard the words “Gas shortage” as a voiceover lead-in to the local news.

    Buckle up, kids — it’s only gets worse from here.
