Is It Over Yet?

As we approach the end of Day Three of the Joe Biden presidency, I’m wondering how many voters are already experiencing buyer’s remorse:

President Joe Biden’s first day in office may have been historic in more ways than one: he may have set a single-day record for the number of jobs killed by an American president.
Biden revoked the permit for the Keystone XL pipeline
, as promised. In so doing, he killed some 11,000 direct jobs that the pipeline’s construction was to have created, and an estimated 60,000 indirect jobs in secondary, related industries.
Over 1,000 workers already on the job — mostly union workers — will be laid off as a result of the decision, even if it is litigated, as many expect it will be, in the courts.
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) confronted Secretary of Transportation nominee Pete Buttigieg over the Keystone XL decision on Thursday morning, during Buttigieg’s confirmation hearing. If the administration was serious about infrastructure, Cruz asked, why was it killing an infrastructure project with “good, paying union jobs”?
When Buttigieg said the idea was that “net” jobs created in more climate-friendly industries would be positive, Cruz retorted that that was little comfort to the Keystone XL workers who were being laid off: “So for those workers, the answer is somebody else will get a job?”
The Association of Oil Pipe Lines complained, as did the United Association of Union Plumbers and Pipefitters — though the union may only have itself to blame: it endorsed Biden in August, after he had promised to kill the pipeline in May.
Biden also halted the construction of the border wall on the U.S.-Mexico boundary on Wednesday. While the projections for jobs there are somewhat unclear, one analysis (by an opponent of the wall) in 2017 estimated that the wall, if fully constructed, would create 10,500 jobs.
Moreover, on Thursday, the Biden Administration announced that it had suspended oil and gas permits on federal land Wednesday. It is unclear how many jobs that will cost — but the outlook is not good.
Most presidents promise to create jobs. Biden killed up to 70,000 jobs in his first 24 hours — and the true total may be even higher.

What were people thinking? I mean, if we assume that people who vote for Democrats are capable of thinking at all. We know that the Democrats were engaged in “vote harvesting,” rounding up mail-in ballots by any means possible, so that if your grandma was comatose in a nursing home in Arizona, Georgia or Wisconsin, she probably “voted” for Biden. You’re not allowed to talk about how mail-in voting enabled this kind of fraud, even though everybody knows how Democrats operate. It’s not a secret that Democrats steal elections. They’ve been doing it for decades, but occasionally Republicans actually manage to win by margins large enough to cancel out the votes fraudulently obtained by Democrats, and then Democrats scream “RAAAAACISM!” But I digress . . .

Beyond the manufactured fake ballots, and votes cast by people who’ve been dead for 20 years, there were actual flesh-and-blood human beings who voted for Joe Biden, and why? Because they hate Trump? Because they watch CNN and don’t actually know anything about Joe Biden?

What policies were they voting for? Did these dimwit Democrat voters think Biden actually had some kind of plan?

President Joe Biden on Friday lowered expectations of his administration’s ability to affect the ongoing coronavirus pandemic in the coming months.
Biden made the remark during a press conference addressing the signage of two more executive orders: one aimed at increasing food stamp benefits and the other for workers’ rights.
“If we fail to act, there will be a wave of evictions and foreclosures in the coming months as this pandemic rages on,” Biden said. “There’s nothing we can do to change the trajectory of the pandemic in the next several months.” . . .
Earlier Wednesday, Biden said, “Wearing masks isn’t a partisan issue — it’s a patriotic act that can save countless lives.” When asked Thursday why the Biden family went maskless for a photo, White House press secretary Jen Psaki replied dismissively.
“He was surrounded by his family, we take a number of precautions but I think we have bigger issues to worry about at this moment in time,” Psaki explained. “I think he was celebrating in the evening of a historic day in our country and certainly he signed the mask mandate because it’s a way to send a message to the American public about the importance of wearing masks.”
When pressed on why Biden did not lead by the “power of his example” regarding masks, Paski shot back, “The power of his example is also the message he sends by signing 25 executive orders, including almost half of them related to COVID.”

See? He signed 25 executive orders! Problem solved!

If you think that’s not good enough, it’s probably because you’re a white supremacist who hates democracy. You’re banned from everything!

We only have to endure another 1,457 days of this.
