Chuck on the right side
THIS IS A BLOG THAT TRIES TO APPEAL TO THE AVERAGE CONSERVATIVE CITIZEN AND HAS NO AGENDA OTHER THAN TELLING THE TRUTH AS WE SEE IT.
The “They” I'm referring to are the Democrats with Sleepy Joe Biden at the helm. Before the Chinese pandemic hit the United States and the world, President Donald Trump had a record of achievement, envied around the globe. Most of the criticisms of Trump were for personal reasons, his manner and style, not for the policies he instigated and passed. Everything that was supposed to be up was up, and everything that was supposed to be down was down. He was on his way to reelection, when the Chinese pandemic hit us and the world like a sledgehammer.
Trump's enemies, which not only included Democrats, but the main stream media, academia, Hollywood, BLM, most unions, especially the teacher's union, and some disaffected RINO Republicans, were mobilized to defeat Trump in the 2020 election.
No matter what Trump said or did, he was mocked and criticized unmercifully, even if his policies were sound and beneficial to the country. His enemies rarely criticized his policies, but they criticized him personally as the next coming of the devil incarnate. They did everything they could to discredit him in the eyes of the public. They initiated false charges of collusion with the Russians (it took over two years to dispel that lie), and they initiated an impeachment trial over his interchange with the Ukrainian President, plus phony charges of racism that were made up “out of whole cloth”.
Trump mainly withstood the attacks on him and his character, but then came the Chinese COVID-19 virus. The plan concocted by his enemies to blame him for his mishandling of the pandemic seemed to have worked for the Democrats, even though they had a very weak candidate in Sleepy Joe Biden. Even though he campaigned from the bowels of his Delaware basement bunker and made very few public appearances, Biden miraculously 'won' the election, even with questions as to the validity of some vote totals in key battleground states. The all-out assault on Trump, in tandem with questionable election activities by his enemies in certain battleground states before, during, and after election night, benefited Biden, giving him a shocking, come from behind victory over Trump.
Now with Joe Biden ensconced in the White House, the public is seeing what the consequences of his election has wrought, as it affects our country both economically and foreign policy-wise. What has a Joe Biden presidency wrought so far? The price of gas has risen over $1.00 per gallon at the pump since his inauguration (and going up); inflation has hit the grocery shelves; our borders are being flooded with illegal immigration, the Middle East is in turmoil and violence is occurring with no leadership offered by Biden or his administration; his domestic economic policies seem to be going haywire as he has adopted Bernie Sanders and the Squad's policies, in addition to the “Green New Deal”. All in all, it looks like Joe Biden has bitten off more than he could chew. He has proposed, along with Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi, giant spending programs worth over many trillions of dollars as a price tag. Remember, about 60 years ago, then Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev said at the United Nations, that he would bury the United States, not by force, but by the United States burying itself from within. Well, it seems that his words were prophetic. Unless we can rein in the destructive policies of the Democrats and Biden by having the Republicans regain the legislative branches, the House and Senate, in the off-year elections in 2022, otherwise, we might just prove Khrushchev right in his assessment.
Yes, the Democrats and Biden are blinded to the facts by their liberal ideology and as a result, they are leading our country to emulating the policies of the many of the third world countries, including in our hemisphere, Cuba and Venezuela. We must throw out the rascals (a/k/a the Marxist/Socialists) in 2022, or we'll be in one helluva mess in the coming years.
