Whether his life support system (the mainstream media) wants to acknowledge it or not, Joe Biden — The TOOL of the radical left — has had a really lousy week.
It began with an April jobs report that significantly underperformed expectations. That’s what killing good-paying jobs (XL pipeline) and proposing a $1.8 trillion tax hike will do. A $300-a-week federal bonus on unemployment checks, of course, isn’t exactly helping get the jobless back to work, either.
And then there’s inflation.
Consumer prices have soared to their highest rate in a dozen years. If these days of rising inflation and stagnant job growth seem familiar, it’s because America lived through the same troubles nearly 45 years ago under Jimmy Carter’s presidency.
That didn’t help Wall Street’s confidence. The markets took a beating amid the latest dour data.
The American left’s bending of reality is hitting an immutable force: Money and credit are indeed finite. So Biden is having some unexpected trouble ramming his orgy of borrowing and taxing through — from his $2.3 trillion infrastructure plan (everything is infrastructure) to his $1.8 trillion in domestic spending.
“At present, Biden does not have a single sure Republican vote for his spending proposals — and even some Democrats in the evenly divided Senate oppose his plans for social spending and higher taxes,” Patrick J. Buchanan wrote in an op-ed.
And then the Colonial Pipeline shutdown happened — compliments of ransomware terrorists. America is learning that while the U.S. Southern border with Mexico is wide open to terrorists under the Joe Biden-created humanitarian crisis, its energy systems are too.
Regardless, Biden’s disastrous climate change agenda has and will continue to drive gas prices up. Americans have shown they will put up with a lot of liberal nonsense, but jack up their gas prices and you’ve got a tiger by the tail.
This president has one thing going for him: Complete backup from corporate media. But the president’s Pravda can only cover up the damage and the pain to average Americans for so long.
Bad week for Biden? Absolutely. And it’s about to get worse.
Joe Biden is Empower Wisconsin’s Tool of the Week.
