What is Bidenization? It’s a conspicuous and humiliating failure in every major area of government activity.
How has an administration been uniformly consistent in turning every major public policy area to disaster? There is no precedent for it, Conrad Black reminds readers in American Greatness.
COVID-19 was the great ally of the Democratic campaign: the rabidly Democratic national political media bashed it like a piñata and terrified and shut down the country, inducing the greatest economic downturn since the Great Depression; while blaming it all on Trump’s contempt for “science.”
Even a vaccine would have to be distrusted and avoided if it was sponsored by Trump, said Biden and Kamala Harris.. This is the same vaccine that the administration is now attempting to coerce all Americans to accept.
A Messaging Tower of Babel
While the administration seems to want to vaccinate the entire population, it also wants every soul to mask and practice social distancing as though no one has been vaccinated.
Sandbagging the Most Vulnerable
Last week’s Wall Street Journal reported that skyrocketing inflation “is eroding household-spending power,” and that “for the lowest-paid Americans,” wages fell half of a percent compared to last year. Why?
According to the WSJ, it’s the result of the massive welfare program, aka “COVID relief,” passed by Biden and congressional Democrats.
Biden’s Rainbows and Unicorns
Biden promises Build Back Better will “cost zero.” But as William McGurn offers in the WSJ, to believe the President is to believe that BBB will usher in “an economic renaissance, in which the only Americans who might find themselves less well off are the rich who deserve it anyway for not paying their fair share.”
The reality contradicts the fantasy, explains Mr. McGurn:
The reality is that these (infrastructure) bills have no real growth provisions and lots of tax hikes, expanded welfare and spending that won’t help an economy struggling to come out of Covid-19. The economic fallout from passing these bills would not be as immediately devastating for Mr. Biden as an outright defeat in Congress would. But if any presidency ever needed a growing economy, Mr. Biden’s does.
