Last week I made the mistake of thinking that I could zip off a piece about one Joseph Robinette Biden, and it would stay within the confines of the space available here upon the printed page. Bwahaha!
Please do not confuse my research and reporting as biased as either pro-Republican or anti-Democrat, or vice versa, as I hold both parties in equal disdain. What matters to me, personally, is the promises of freedom and liberty, paid for in blood, by our nation’s founding fathers and generations upon generations who stood up against injustice and fought against political tyranny and government overreach. There is no left vs. right; there is only tyranny vs. freedom. In the end, it has always been, and will always be, you vs. “the state.”
We begin this week picking up from where I had to break off last week in listing out Biden’s long list of political blunders, for just the two years since being sworn in as our president:
Biden had initiated the first of his presidential problems before he was actually elected. Beginning with a statement made during a 2019 election debate moderated by Univision’s Jorge Ramos, Biden stated: to ‘surge the borders.’ “I would in fact make sure that there is immediately a surge to the border. They deserve to be heard. That’s who we are. We’re a nation that says, ‘You want to flee, and you’re fleeing oppression, you should come.’”
Biden had thus signaled that if he was elected, that if someone can get into the U.S., they could probably stay. Reports from January and February 2021 saw at least 100,000 people trying to cross the border, with many seen wearing T-shirts captioned with “Biden, please let us in.” When interviewed, these “migrants” stated that they were there because Biden was elected as the president.
Meanwhile, the Biden administration denied the existence of a crisis on our southern border, while the residents of Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and even California differed. Without any debate, without congressional hearings, new legislation, or anything more than a series of executive orders, President Biden effectively put in place a complete open-border policy on the southwest border. That was at least until June of 2022, when an abandoned semi-truck was found to contain more than 40 dead migrants, leading the Biden administration to finally begin to take actions regarding the border crisis he had created.
In a later effort to empty overflowing border facilities, the Biden administration began to secretly ship illegal migrants across state borders and into suburban neighborhoods. In November of 2021, the office of Florida Governor Ron DeSantis alleged that “more than 70 flights transporting migrants from the southern border to Jacksonville had landed in the dark of night.”
In November 2021, White House physician Dr. Kevin O’Connor stated that Biden was a “healthy, vigorous 78-year-old male who is fit to successfully execute the duties of the presidency.” President Biden responded by continuing his never-ending list of gaffes:
– While attending the United Nation’s climate summit on November 1, 2021, President Joe Biden very publicly fell asleep during the meeting.
– In a March 26, 2022, address in Poland, concluding a 3-day trip to Europe to rally our allies to remain unified against ongoing Russian military operations against Ukraine, Biden appeared to condone the idea of regime change to oust President Vladimir Putin, stating “for God’s sake, this man cannot remain in power.”
– At an April 2 commissioning ceremony in Wilmington, Delaware, for the nuclear attack submarine U.S.S. Delaware, President Biden referred to former “first lady” Michelle Obama as having been the “vice president,” stating, “I’m deeply proud of the work she (Jill Biden) is doing as first lady with the Joining Forces initiative she started with Michelle Obama when she was vice president.”
– In his March 1 State of the Union speech, Biden mistakenly referred to the people of Ukraine, calling them Iranian, stating, “Putin may surround Kyiv with tanks, but he will never win the hearts and minds of the Iranian people.”
– In his July 8 speech about protecting women’s reproductive rights, Biden accidentally read his teleprompter instructions aloud, reading, “It is noteworthy that the percentage of women who register to vote and cast a ballot is consistently higher than the percentage of the men who do so – end of quote, repeat the line. Women are not without electoral and, or, political – let me be precise: not and, or – or political power.” – with this mistake immediately drawing comparisons to Will Ferrell’s character of Ron Burgundy, who made a similar mistake in the 2004 film “Anchorman.”
– At the September 28 White House hunger event, Biden called out to address the late Rep. Jackie Walorski (R-IN), who had died in a car crash the month before. This incident was reminiscent of the 2008 campaign event, where Biden asked wheelchair-bound Missourri State Sen. Chuck Graham to “stand up” and be recognized.
– While at an October 20 rally for John Fetterman in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Biden exited off of the stage the wrong way before someone corrected him, sending him back in the opposite direction. This incident was reminiscent of the time Biden “got lost in bushes” on his way back into the White House on August 10, 2021.
– On October 24, at a celebration for the birthday of Vice President Kamala Harris, Biden mistakenly referred to her as a “great president.”
– During a speech at a campaign event in Pennsylvania for John Fetterman on October 28, when speaking about the Affordable Care Act, Biden mistakenly stated that there were 54 U.S. states.
– At the November 12, 2022, Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Summit in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, Biden mistakenly addressed Hun Sen, the prime minister of Cambodia, as the prime minister of Colombia.
I have more to come, but because of the limitations of space available, I must stop here. Watch for my conclusion as I wrap up my list of Biden’s Blunders (thus far) in my column for next week’s edition of “The Coosa County News.”
