“Weaken America First” is the Democrats’ Goal

According to Newt Gingrich, former Congressman from Georgia, and Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives from 1995-1999, for Fox News, “Biden, Democrats make every decision based on how it impacts America and always chose what hurts the most.”

“When Sean Hannity asked me why President Joe Biden would favor buying oil and gas from Venezuela over producing oil and gas in Texas, Pennsylvania, Oklahoma, Louisiana or North Dakota, something clicked in my thinking.”

Something “clicked” for me as well, although for me it “clicked” a couple of years ago. So, welcome to the party Newt, although you’re quite late.

My prior thinking was that democrats were misguided, foolish, and/or stupid, but then I came to realize the democrats’ (at least the ruling class of democrats) anti-America actions were calculated and evil, while the majority of their followers were misguided, foolish, and/or stupid, although we all know that ignorance is no excuse in the end.   

Newt continues, “I was reminded of the amazing speech United Nations Ambassador Jeane Kirkpatrick gave at the 1984 Republican Convention, when she described the ‘blame-America-first Democrats.’” 

“I suddenly realized the common thread of Biden administration policies at home and abroad is to weaken America.”

Ya think, Newt?!

Is this why it seems the republicans are always a day late and a dollar short?

“Think about the administration’s range of choices and ask yourself: Which ones would strengthen America, and which ones would weaken it?”

“In Afghanistan, Biden could have followed the advice of [some of] the professional military and withdrawn in a calm and orderly manner. This would have led to no loss of life, no abandonment of equipment, and no sense of humiliating failure. It would have made America stronger.”

“Instead, the Biden administration overruled the military, abandoned billions in equipment, fled Afghanistan in chaos [and humiliation], sacrificed 13 young Americans [soldiers], and abandoned thousands of Americans and tens of thousands of our allies. He chose to weaken America.”

Biden and his administration were then allowed to lie and deny the whole thing, without being held accountable by the fake news media.

“The Biden team could side with the demonstrators in Iran and China who are trying to overthrow dictatorships. Instead, it has made a series of weak, border-line pathetic comments. A strong America would reach out to people striving to be free. A weak America [led by a bought and paid for Joe Biden] kowtows to Xi Jinping and the Chinese communist dictatorship and grovels to the ayatollah and the Iranian tyranny, no matter how much they work against us. Once again, weakening America and strengthening our enemies is the Biden [and the democrats’] model.”

“If the United States had sustained [maintained] [its] energy independence, we would be strengthening our European allies with liquid natural gas. They could ignore Russia’s economic blackmail. A strong America would do just that. Instead, the Biden administration is pleading with the crown prince of Saudi Arabia and exonerating him from the killing of a journalist. All of Biden’s earlier tough language about Saudi Arabia being a ‘pariah state’ has dissolved. All that is left is Biden’s whimpering plea for more Saudi oil to make up for the American oil he has blocked. Again, America is weaker.”

Again, while Biden and his administration were then allowed to lie, deny, spread disinformation about the whole thing, without being held accountable by the fake news media.

“As I mentioned, Kirkpatrick was the first to clearly identify the decay of the Democrats away from strength and realism toward weakness and fantasies. Her 1984 speech captured the trajectory of madness and destruction onto which the Democrats had embarked.”

That’s close to 40 years ago already, and the democrats definitely are living in some sort of sick “fantasy” world.

“She noted that the Democrats at that time had clearly broken from the patriotic traditions of Democrat Presidents Harry Truman, John F. Kennedy, and Lyndon Johnson and were on a new, more destructive path. She continued: ‘They said that saving Grenada from terror and totalitarianism was the wrong thing to do, they didn’t blame Cuba or the communists for threatening American students and murdering Grenadians, they blamed the United States instead.’”

“When our Marines, sent to Lebanon on a multinational peacekeeping mission with the consent of the United States Congress, were murdered in their sleep, the ‘blame America first crowd’ didn’t blame the terrorists who murdered the Marines, they blamed the United States.”

“When the Soviet Union walked out of arms control negotiations, and refused even to discuss the issues, the San Francisco Democrats didn’t blame Soviet intransigence. They blamed the United States.”

“When Marxist dictators shoot their way to power in Central America, the San Francisco Democrats don’t blame the guerrillas and their Soviet allies, they blame United States policies…”

“In the last 38 years, ‘blame America first’ has metastasized into ‘weaken America first.’”

“The patriotic courage of Presidents Truman, Kennedy and Johnson has mutated into a steadily weaker and more pathetic foreign and national security policy. It began with President Jimmy Carter and grew steadily worse with Presidents Bill Clinton, Barack Obama, and Biden.”

Newt’s perspective here is more of an historic one, and one from a world view.

My perspective here is more one of current affairs and current democrat policies, such as:

The promotion of criminal behavior, and the allowance of crime against law-abiding individuals and businesses.

The promotion of and the allowance of illegal immigrants crossing into our country on our southern border.

The promotion of and the allowance of the Mexican drug cartels to carry out their drug trafficking and human trafficking operations.

The creation of record high inflation, and the disinformation and denial of this record inflation.

The systematic destruction of our country’s history.

The promotion of pedophilia as an acceptable life style, and the federal protection of those involved in this lifestyle, regarding Epstein’s client list for example.

The promotion of aborting babies at any time, even after birth!

The weaponization of the DOJ and the FBI against any citizen who dares to disagree with the democrats’ stated goals and narratives.

The attack on fossil fuel production in our country, even though fossil fuels still provide 90-95% of the energy our country requires.  

The promotion of Climate Change as a world-ending, human created, problem, and the promotion of Green New Deal policies and laws that would supposedly have some type of positive effect on this supposed problem.

The promotion of pandemic policies, vaccines, and mandates, which had no basis in science, but rather were all politically driven, with no consideration of the well-being of the American people, or the people of the world for that matter.

The coordinated assault on our election systems and procedures.

The degradation of our education system, and the promotion of liberal narrative indoctrination.

Their attacks on our Constitution, particularly the 1st and 2nd amendments.

It would seem the democrats certainly have left no stone unturned in their attack on our great country!  

I agree with Newt when he says, “Today, the most reliable predictor of Biden administration (or Democrat Party) policy is whether it will strengthen or weaken America. If it will strengthen America, they almost certainly will not do it. If it will weaken America, they almost certainly will.”

There can be no doubt that “Weaken America First” is the Democrats’ Goal.

Biden says he’ll do “NOTHING” different to help Americans.

Based on “President” Biden’s first two years in office, this really shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone.

In fact, he and his ilk have done just the opposite for two straight years now.

But, it is an odd political declaration to make at this point, seeing that exit polling, during the recent midterms, indicated over 75% of voters felt our country was “moving in the wrong direction.”

Let me repeat that.

“Over 75% of voters feel our country is “moving in the wrong direction!”

That is quite a significant number.

Per the transcript provided on Whitehouse.gov, regarding remarks by President Biden in his Press Conference of November 9, 2022, President Biden said, regarding taking questions from the Press, “And, so let me start off with a list I’ve been given. Zeke Miller, Associated Press.”

Yes…, by all means, stick to the script you’ve been given by your puppet masters, Cognitively Challenged Joe! So pathetic!

“Thank you, Mr. President,” Zeke Miller replied. “I have two questions for you. You mentioned that Americans are frustrated. And, in fact, 75 percent of voters say the country is heading in the wrong direction, despite the results of last night [election night 2022]. What in the next two years do you intend to do differently to change people’s opinion of the direction of the country, particularly as you contemplate a run for President in 2024?”

‘“Nothing,’ President Biden quickly responded.”

‘“… because they’re just finding out what we’re doing,’ he continued. ‘The more they know about what we’re doing, the more support there is.’”

‘“So, I’m not going to change the direction.’”

‘“I said I ran for three reasons.  I’m going to continue to stay where I’m — and I know — I fully understand the legitimate concern that what I’m saying is wrong.  Okay?’”

Uh…, not really.

What did he say?

I’m not even sure about what he meant to say.

Anyway…, let’s continue.  

Creepy Joe then continued, ‘“One is that I said we’re going to restore the soul of the country, begin to treat each other with decency, honor, and integrity.  And it’s starting to happen.  People are — the conversations are becoming more normal, becoming more — more — how can I say it? — decent.’”

Normal?

Decent?

“Begin to treat each other with decency, honor, and integrity?”

Are you kidding us Illegitimate Joe?

Could I refer you back to your “Gestapo” speech that basically called half of America white supremacists and terrorists, and threats to the country and democracy?

Is that your idea of normal, and treating each other with “decency, honor, and integrity?”  

‘“Second thing I said is I want to build a country from the middle out and the bottom up.  And that way, everybody does fine.  I’m tired of trickle-down.  Not a whole lot trickles down when you trickle down to hardworking folks.’”

Excuse me, Sleepy Joe, but your economic plan of driving us into bankruptcy with outlandish gas prices, and 10%-30%+ inflation on everything else isn’t even allowing for a trickle down. It’s a constipated economy where everybody doesn’t do fine…, everybody does the same, and everybody is losing, unless you’re a government handout hero.  

‘“And the third thing — I know is still very hard — I’m going to do everything in my power to see through that we unite the country.  It’s hard to sustain yourself as a leading democracy in the world if you can’t — can’t generate some unity.’”

‘“So, I’m not going to change anything in any fundamental way.’”

Again, are you kidding us Illegitimate Joe?

Again, let me refer you back to your Hitler wannabe speech that basically called half of America white supremacists and terrorists, and threats to the country and democracy.

Your idea of “unity” is making sure everyone is drinking the democrat totalitarian Kool-aid.

And again, you finished by saying, “So, I’m not going to change anything in any fundamental way.”

And also, again, it is an odd political declaration to make, seeing that exit polling conducted during the recent midterm elections indicated over 75% of voters felt our country was “moving in the wrong direction.”

The only reasons a politician would feel comfortable ignoring the sentiments of tens of millions registered voters are:

A) They don’t plan on running for re-election, or…

B)  They’re not worried about being re-elected.

Hmmm…, now why would Illegitimate Joe not be concerned about being re-elected?

Could it be because he knows he was “installed” as the president once, and knows he can be “installed” again, regardless of what the voters think?

I’m going with the latter line of reasoning.

Keep in mind, “Over 75% of voters feel our country is “moving in the wrong direction!”

Democrats have their national election strategy well established.

270 electoral votes are needed to win a presidential election. The democrats can already bank on the substantial electoral votes from California, Washington, Oregon, New York, and Illinois in their back pockets. So, the election basically comes down to the swing states of Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, Arizona, and Nevada, where election laws, election procedures, and election logistics allow for “manipulations” by the democrats, which are really quite manageable.  

This is why Illegitimate Joe, and his “handlers,” feel comfortable saying he doesn’t plan on changing anything, or doing anything, to address their concerns about the direction of the country.

This version of a democrat dictatorship will eventually lead to the economic and moral destruction of our country, if we don’t stand up and fight back against the democrats somehow.

Again, “Over 75% of voters feel our country is “moving in the wrong direction!”

Yet, the democrats had a very successful, unusually successful, midterm election result.  

Hmmm?

How is this happening again?

Well, it’s almost a week after Election Day now, and “votes” are still being tabulated, and “votes” are still showing up, as needed, from somewhere, and democrat candidates are continuing to pull off tight election wins.

It’s the democrats’ version of democracy in action.

“Make no mistake…,” Biden’s about to lie!

Yes, my friends…, when Illegitimate Joe prefaces a statement with the words “make no mistake,” a big lie is coming!

According to Sahil Kapur, of NBC News, “President Joe Biden told House Democrats that 2022 “may be the most important off-year election in modern history,” and gave his party credit for an improving economy and rejected blame for rising gas prices.”

This strategy of stating the obvious before dropping misinformation bombs, is an attempt to lend credibility to their lies. For example, “Roses are red, violets are blue, and the federal government is here to help you.”   

“Democrats didn’t cause this problem. Vladimir Putin did,” Biden said of the Russian president. “Putin’s gas tax has pushed prices higher.”

It’s true that Putin’s actions have pushed gas prices higher…, but it’s not true that you sir, and “Democrats didn’t cause this problem,” because you did. You were handed energy independence by President Trump. All you had to do was nothing. But your first day in office, your first day, you immediately chose to hand our energy fate back to the Middle East, Russia, and Iran. Why would you and your anti-American friends do that, Joe?  

“The president spoke to Democratic lawmakers as the party grapples with fierce political headwinds in the run-up to the 2022 midterm elections, with Republicans attempting to seize on voter angst to capture control of Congress.”

And those “headwinds” have definitely been earned. People aren’t just angry about gas prices and inflation in general. There is the crime issue, the defunding the police issue, the southern border and immigration issues, the COVID mandates issue, the parents vs. school boards issue, the DOJ vs. school parents issue, voting issues, censorship issues, and the list goes on and on.    

If Republicans do so (capture control of the Congress), the president said Friday, “The only thing I’ll have then is the veto pen.”

I don’t know, Joe…, that executive order pen has been pretty devastating as well.  

“Democrats are conflicted over the best path to hang on to their slim majorities. Some argue lawmakers should communicate better (they mean lie better), promote their victories (they mean make up things that could be construed as a victory) and focus on bipartisan opportunities (although they really have no interest in operating in any type of bipartisan manner). Others say that isn’t enough (that they won’t be able to lie their way out of this one), and that Democrats need more policy wins to improve people’s lives, including salvaging parts of Biden’s Build Back Better Act, to have a reasonable chance of retaining Congress.”

Ha! Ya, we wouldn’t want to try to improve people’s lives just to help people. But they’ll throw us all a bone here and there in an attempt to get re-elected, and then dictate their misery all over again. An excellent example of this would be Black Americans. Democrats always become extremely interested in Black Americans when election time rolls around. Then after the election, it’s crickets for another four years.  

“Biden said, ‘The real reason prices are so high in the U.S., notwithstanding what Republicans say, is twofold: Covid’s disruptions to supply chains, and Putin’s war in Ukraine driving up gas prices. Make no mistake, inflation’s largely the fault of Putin.’”

“Make no mistake.”

Covid and Putin. The democrats will be riding this train all the way up to the elections later this year.  

And the fake news…, the liberal propaganda news, will now continue to echo these falsehoods, like the good little anti-America co-conspirators they are.

Stay deplorable my friends.

No one wants to work anymore?

In many cases that’s true…, at least not for what you want to pay them.

Why doesn’t the rule of supply and demand apply to workers?

I keep hearing we can’t pay workers more without raising prices.

It seems to me companies aren’t worried about raising prices because of other factors. 

Have you checked out the price of gas, or the prices of building supplies lately?

If you have to raise prices, so be it.

If your business can’t cut it by paying people a fair wage, then shut it down and go get a job yourself.

According to Patti Domm, for CNBC, “Workers’ wages are rising at the fastest pace in years. Companies’ profits could take a hit.”

Oh nooooo…, “companies’ profits could take a hit!”

Not the poor company owners or shareholders!

Don’t the “working poor” know their place?!

Don’t the “working poor” know they’re supposed to work for next to nothing so the rest of us can have an affordable meal, while the owners and shareholders pad their wallets?!

The nerve!

“The pandemic changed work life and as the economy reopens, it’s changing it again, with companies offering higher wages as they grapple with a labor shortage.”

“It’s been at least 25 years since U.S. businesses were willing to increase worker pay. While this won’t affect the bottom line right away, it could start to squeeze profits down the road.”

So, they admit they’ve been taking advantage of the working poor for “at least 25 years,” and now they’re crying when they have to pony up and finally pay people a decent wage for a change?

Excuse my French, but these greedy PsOS can go FOAD, in my humble opinion.

I normally don’t get so upset, but this is a topic that is near and dear to my heart.  Please see my prior blogs on the working poor and the minimum wage.  

‘“Under Armor’ announced this week that it was boosting its minimum wage, following other companies, like McDonald’s, Chipotle, and Bank of America.”

“Workers are getting higher wages, but at some point that could bite into companies’ profits.”

Again…, ohhhhhh nooooooooooo!

So you mean these CEOs might have to live on $10 million a year as opposed to $11 million a year?!

“As the economy reopens, costs are climbing for everything from packaging and raw materials to shipping. In addition to these expenses, companies are also paying more to get workers to come in the door.”

Like I said before…, costs are climbing for everything, across the board, but it’s the workers who are to blame, and the workers they choose to complain about.

“But the disparity between labor costs and profits has been so wide for so long, that employers should be able to increase pay if they can raise prices for goods and services or improve productivity.”

“McDonald’s said last week that it was boosting wages for the 36,500 hourly workers at company-owned stores by 10%, and Chipotle announced it will raise wages to an average of $15 an hour by the end of June. Bank of America said it would raise minimum wages for its hourly workers to $25 an hour, from the current $20, by 2025.”

Ha! By 2025?!

Why not now?

Why not guarantee a living wage by 2050, and a fair increase in the minimum wage by 2075?!

I mean, we are talking about time in chunks of 25 years, aren’t we?

“Sports equipment company Under Armor also announced it would boost the minimum hourly wage for its retail and distribution workers to $15 from $10.”

“It’s some of the strongest wage growth we’ve seen in a quarter century,” said Mark Zandi, Moody’s Analytics chief economist. He said the 3% wage growth for private workers in the first quarter was the strongest since the 1990s and productivity has picked up at the same time.”

“Employers are trying to address a labor shortage, according to Jonathan Golub, chief U.S. equity strategist at Credit Suisse.”

‘“The economy is overheating and companies, even though we have a high unemployment rate, cannot get the labor they need to meet demand and they are being forced to raise wages,’ he said. ‘It’s happening with financial services. It’s happening in industry. It’s happening in retail. You’re seeing it everywhere.’”

Yes…, it’s called capitalism, Mr. Golub.

“Golub said investors are right to wonder when the higher wage costs could pressure profit margins, but he does not anticipate it becoming a problem in the near term.”

Like I said, it’s called capitalism, Mr. Golub. And capitalism does not solely benefit owners and investors.  Workers are allowed to benefit from capitalism as well!

“If this represents a trend where people begin to expect higher wages and they demand higher wages, and there’s a continuation, yes it becomes a problem,” he said. “We don’t know if this is a one-time adjustment.”

That name “Golub” rings a bell.

Maybe I’m thinking of “Golem,” from The Lord of the Rings!”

Anyway…, take your sad song walking, Golub.  We have a million symphonies of sad songs out here…, you just haven’t tuned into them…, because really you just don’t care.

This crying about the loss of profits just goes on and on.

My point is, there isn’t a lot of sympathy out here for the loss of profits.

“Mike Englund, chief economist at Action Economics, said the pandemic has resulted in some permanent changes in employment. ‘We probably downsized the restaurant industry.’”

There’s no “probably” about it, Englund. The democrat COVID stupidness “downsized” many business, along with the restaurant industry.  

“The industry will likely shrink in cities like New York, but it could grow in suburbs since many restaurants added takeout.”

What a maroon! Ya, none of these restaurants had takeout before!

I’m sure it couldn’t have been caused by the incessant lockdowns, the looting of their businesses, or actual damage caused by all of the “peaceful protests…,” not to mention the surge in crime, due to more liberal policies.

 

“One result of the pandemic is that people moved out of cities or to different regions. ‘With this shift… we’re seeing shortages, a mismatch,’ Englund said.”

Ha!  No kidding.  These are shortages these cities created, and are creating, themselves.

Again…, take your sad song walking…, and don’t let the backdoor hit you in the backside on the way out.  On second thought…, go ahead and let it!
