The Biden administration brought the swamp back to ‘normal’
One of Joe Biden’s selling points during the campaign was that he offered a return to normalcy, but “normalcy” was never defined.
Maybe it’s because he spent the countryside hiding in his basement. Perhaps it was his predilection for doing things like challenging voters to contests. More likely, it referred to his signature of not being Donald Trump, which the swamp really wanted.
Although the phrase was mocked by those outside of his campaign team and mainstream media (but I’m repeating myself), it should have been treated as a warning. What normalcy really meant was that the elites were about to come back and bring with them their goals of reshape the nation, pushing a false “equality” which most people oppose, and making sure Davos Man has adequate representation.
Now the people who made voters turn to Trump in 2016 – and 2020, even if he lost – are in charge again. As America only enters the third month of the Biden administration, it is evident that “normalcy” has indeed returned. Here are a few examples of how Scranton Joe makes this point inescapable.
About these executive orders
Bill clinton sign 13 decrees in his first 100 days in office, George W. Bush issued 11. Barack Obama raised the bar with 19 in his first 100 days. Trump increased it further to 24.
Biden, perhaps confusing executive orders with the aforementioned push-up contest, signed 40 during roughly his first week at the office. And he hadn’t finished. When executive actions and memoranda are included, the total is now north of 50.
The Keystone pipeline has been canceled, but at least not for the tweets he wrote as a child. Want to equity, one thing that no one except the Marxists understood was the goal of the company until last summer? Biden did you cover. Mexico City Politics was abandoned. And while less harmful to children as they continue to live, Biden also made sure to undo what Trump carried out on illegal immigration.
Goodbye, Cages. Welcome Back, migrant facilities for children
Do you remember that Obama was holding children in cages? Me neither. And now there is definitely no crisis. It ended on January 21. Either way, people shouldn’t aspire no matter how bad our leaders tell them to. This country is a racist cesspool and people should stay away. We don’t even pay a living wage. Talking about that…
Student loans and minimum wage
LOL at Minimum wage of $ 15. On student loans, pass, unless your debt is from a school you probably did not attend. If you made any other youthful mistakes, besides excessive student loans, or even participated in some legal activity, move one as well, because there is something you may have forgotten about the vice- President.
Kamala is a cop
She is always in it. Is she extra-zealous if grass is the bomb? We can’t know, but when it comes to actual bombs, we do know one thing.
The blob is back
We are once again Make bombardment normal again. Because if there is one thing that we have come to accept as normal, it is belligerence, whether foreign or national. And if there’s one more thing we expect, it’s that we have to be in the Middle East always.
But above all, remember that swamp creatures never really go away. They are moving temporarily to the private sector where they advise people on how to avoid government regulations before returning to the swamp to create new regulations.
The band is back together
Obama could be relegated to action boomer podcasts with the Boss, But the group is back together. This time, however, their bank accounts are better padded than on their last visit to the White House. Not that Trump surrounds himself with the poor. It is also not likely that the post-administrative offers will leave its officials with empty bank accounts.
What Trump did, however, was attempt to make voices outside the bureaucracy heard to implement its vision. His administration was not emblematic of the revolving door between DC and the private sector that so many people use to get rich. More importantly, before being elected, Trump promised to be a traitor to his class.
When he won he did something weird. He actually ruled as he said. From economics and peace deals to pro-life issues, criminal justice reform and deregulation, he hasn’t done what DC defines as normal. It is as if no one has told him that governing is normally more about making lip-service to your constituents than delivering.
Now, however, the the neoliberals are back to their seats of power. Chamber of Commerce recovered its legitimate role. Have been bombing raid and hold and spend while the media tells the truth to power – I mean, prevent democracy from dying in darkness – I mean runs for his favorite political party.
They tried to warn us that this would happen, but we did not listen. Instead, we got back to normal, with a vengeance, but I’m not sure that’s what people, outside of the neoconservatives who returned home, voted for.
