The following Op-Ed is written and submitted by Paul Plante.
As the “Silly Season,” an apt euphemism for the presidential primary season, begins in earnest, we can expect to be barraged, as is already beginning, with a load of political propaganda from TEAM BIDEN concerning this subject of BIDE-O-NOMICS, which Joe himself, a man with a well-earned reputation as a serial liar who more and more is looked at as a CLOWN PRINCE on the world stage, because, well, let’s face it and be honest with ourselves, he is, describes as follows, this at a gathering of union workers at Philly Shipyard in Philadelphia on 20 July 2023, to wit:
“I’m not here to declare victory; we got a long way to go on the economy,”
“But I’m here to say we have more work to do.”
“We have a plan that’s turning things around pretty quickly.”
“’Bidenomics’ is just another way of saying ‘Restore the American Dream.'”
“That’s the American Dream.”
And doesn’t that sound positively grand and glorious, people?
Joe Biden, our president, as well as being the LEADER OF THE FREE WORLD, and CONQUEROR OF THE SOLAR SYSTEM, is going to restore the American Dream by building back better to make America great again, all while fighting Donald Trump, the Republicans, the Russians, Putin, and the Chinese for the soul of America!
According to the news, Joe is taking his BIDE-O-NOMICS Show out on the road, much like a rock or hip-hop or country-western star takes a new hit single out on the road (cue Bob Seger On The Road Again https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3hoEc2Mi-7g ) going west this week to tout his economic gains to residents of Arizona, New Mexico, and Utah.
With respect to the BIDE-O-NOMICS Show Tour featuring Joe Biden live and in person, Natalie Quillian, the White House deputy chief of staff who would know these things, given how important she is in the Biden autocracy, told The Washington Post while previewing Biden’s stops this week in Arizona, New Mexico, and Utah that “You can expect us to highlight more groundbreakings of projects, more ribbon-cuttings, and opportunities to show the American people how these investments and jobs are reaching their communities and their neighborhoods,” and “This is a critical element of our strategy.”
But are those “investments” in Joe Biden’s INSANE GREEN DREAM really reaching our communities and neighborhoods?
That is a question that needs some exploring, and the place to do that, given the focus on protecting and promoting intellectual liberty here in the GRAND PALLADIUM of liberty known as the Cape Charles Mirror, is in the Cape Charles Mirror, this in the light of Democratic strategist Jennifer Holdsworth telling Reuters that this week’s BIDE-O-NOMICS road show could serve to counter a message spread by the nation’s right-wing media that have distorted the economy and Biden’s legislative agenda, to wit:
“As President Biden gets out there on the campaign trail, I think you’ll see that trend start to change,” she said.
But given that Fitch Ratings has just downgraded the main U.S. credit rating, drawing squeals and howls of protest from the likes of Biden Treasury Secretary Janet “TOODLES” Yellen, who is calling it “entirely unwarranted,” which is an absurd statement given that “TOODLES” just announced on 31 July 2023 that she expects to borrow $1.007 trillion in the third quarter to pay for BIDE-O-NOMICS, which sum is higher than the May estimate by $274 billion, due to a lower cash balance at the beginning of the quarter, and expectations of lower receipts and higher outlays for the period, that while Richard Francis, a senior director at Fitch, told Reuters that the deterioration was reflected in this year’s debt ceiling fight, and the increasing polarization of both major political parties, making compromise harder to achieve, all of which is so true, and in its decision to cut the U.S. rating by one notch to AA+ from AAA, Fitch also cited a fiscal deterioration over the next three years that will increase deficits and repeated down-to-the wire debt ceiling negotiations that threaten the U.S. government’s ability to pay its bills, thanks to the hefty bill for BIDE-O-NOMICS, otherwise known as classic Democrat BORROW-AND-SPEND and the consequences to the nation and future generations be damned, so long as the Democrats get to line their pockets with government money (graft it is called) in the here and now.
And in a Reuters article titled “Biden officials protest ‘bizarre’ Fitch downgrade, cite Trump-era woes” by David Lawder on August 2, 2023, we had Biden regime officials complaining about Fitch’s downgrade of the top U.S. government credit rating, saying the group used flawed methodology and ignored a resilient economy, which is total hogwash, given that Fitch’s report cited “a steady deterioration in standards of governance over the last 20 years” and said “repeated debt-limit political standoffs and last-minute resolutions have eroded confidence in fiscal management,” which of course is understatement, which statement of reality drew this retort from an unnamed senior Biden administration, to wit:
“This is a bizarre and baseless decision for Fitch to make now.”
“It simply defies common sense to take this downgrade as a result of what was really a mess caused by the last administration and reckless actions by congressional Republicans.”
Except it is not congressional Republicans who are borrowing all this money – it is congressional Democrats, which brings us to Biden’s re-election campaign spokesman Kevin Munoz telling us as follows, to wit: “This Trump downgrade is a direct result of an extreme MAGA Republican agenda defined by chaos, callousness, and recklessness that Americans continue to reject.”
And thus, people, the stage has been set, raising the question of whether as a nation and as a people, we are really stupid enough to believe a word Joe Biden and all of his lackeys and flunkeys and lickspittles are telling us about the economy and our future as a nation, so stay tuned and in a future episode of the Cape Charles Mirror, we will be right back with more on this same subject.
