Episode 228 – The Biden Boondoggle!

Since the debate is tonight, let’s take a peak at Sleepy, Creepy Joe’s policies. You know, the one he wrote with comrade Bernie Sanders.

The Wall Street Journal has a great article about it.


On the Heels of the First Debate, Let’s Talk Biden

From the Wall Street Journal, there is an article called The Biden-Sanders Manifesto by Phil Gramm. Great article basically giving an overview of the Biden policies which were based on Bernie Sanders belief system. I think it might be important to go over some of Biden’s policies because of the debate tomorrow. And it’s kind of a slow news day.

Now, one thing to remember is that we are coming off record unemployment lows for all races and genders, the highest stock market numbers and the highest consumer confidence which includes housing. It was this virus from China that put us where we are today, not Trump.

Gramm said:

“Yet after he won the nomination as the only “moderate” in the race, the new world of the coronavirus shutdown revealed a new candidate who wants “not just to rebuild the economy, but to transform it,” as Mr. Biden said in a May address… Mr. Biden’s dramatic political transformation has exposed what many have always suspected: Moderate Democrats aren’t socialists unless they think they can adopt socialist policies and survive politically.”

This is true. Remember, the goal of Democrats is power. They want it everywhere. They lose a Presidential election, eliminate the Electoral College. The Supreme Court is 6-3 conservative? Pack the court. Democrats don’t vote like Republicans? Send them a ballot or two and then harvest the ballots. It’s about power and they will blow up any system that keeps them from power.

Joe Biden wants power, even if its for only a couple of months. He will do anything to get it including adopting socialist policies one moment and rejecting socialist policies the next. He’s a con artist. A con artist with dementia.

Gramm continues:

“The Biden-Sanders “Unity” manifesto envisions the socialism of an all-encompassing welfare state, with virtually every need a right, and every right guaranteed by taxpayer funding.”

Yep. Let’s talk about needs versus rights. The article talks about housing, health care and education. Here’s the thing: those aren’t rights. They have never been rights. Those are services. People have never been entitled to them. Heck, people have never been entitled to food and water. You know what I have a right to? Pray to the God I want. Say whatever I want. Protest my government. Protect myself. All this without fear of going to prison. Healthcare is not a right. I do not have the right to tell a doctor, who has been in school for twelve years, that he has to help me for free.

Gramm continues:

“On health care, Mr. Biden bought Mr. Sanders’s “Medicare for All” scheme—though on an installment plan. First health care becomes a right where “no one pays more than 8.5 percent of their income.” Mr. Biden’s planned public option is heavily subsidized, with no deductibles and low copayments. Like current Medicare, this “Medicare option” would further inflate the cost of private plans by making them pay more to compensate for government’s underpayment to hospitals and doctors. The inevitable result would be that the Medicare option would quickly “compete” private plans out of business. Commercial banking would be similarly threatened by new publicly backed post-office banks along with the Federal Reserve, which Mr. Biden wants to grant permanent authority to lend to businesses.”

Universal health care is scary because it does what Gramm says it’s going to do. It is going to spread to the different institutions. That’s the goal. Here, it’s attacking the banking system. It will, eventually, attack the education system.

Gramm continues:

“A President Biden would implement a version of the Sanders Green New Deal, only in 15 years instead of 10. Mr. Biden’s plan uses mandates and subsidies to dictate what kind of energy is produced, remaking the world’s most efficient energy industry in the image of Solyndra.”

I love this. You know what “mandates and subsidies” is? It’s taxes and regulation.

Gramm continues, his passion coming out:

In all things, the government would direct, regulate and mandate with armies of the “best and brightest,” organized as a caring corps of subsidized health-, child- and elder-care workers, plus a climate corps of environmental regulators. Government employees would enjoy the “highest labor standards” for pay and benefits. A new right to strike for all workers would include secondary strikes like those that recently paralyzed France.

With government for, of and by government, all public servants would benefit, except the police. Police are to be more closely tracked and exposed, and federal law-enforcement would be hampered with a New York-style arrest-and-release program. Disorder awaits. Since Mr. Biden believes “substance use disorders are diseases, not crimes” and “no one should be in prison solely because they use drugs,” American neighborhoods may soon resemble the streets of San Francisco.

Yes, yes and yes!

Gramm continues:

“This month he pledged to end the “era of shareholder capitalism.” That era began with the Great Economic Awakening that followed the Enlightenment. By rejecting shareholder capitalism and making private wealth subject to public demands, the Biden administration would take America back to the medieval world, where labor and capital were forced to pay fealty to the crown, guild, church and village, which leeched the lifeblood out of the incentives to work and save.”

Love the language.

More from Gramm:

“The final pillar of the Biden program is racial justice. Ironically, the vice president to the first black president believes that America is systemically racist. His “Unity” program declares that virtually every significant gap—in wealth, health care, housing, policing, education—can be blamed on racism. The cure is a massive transformation of every aspect of American life, using a reparations commission, wealth transfers, subsidies, employment and promotion preferences, quotas, and even a new mandate to the Federal Reserve to seek racial equity. Every action that displaces merit with preference will reduce American efficiency and competitiveness. Tilting the system in the name of correcting old injustices will create new ones.”

What Biden, Sanders and supporters of the Green New Deal is the equality of outcome whereas capitalism is about quality of opportunity.




Calling Them Out

According the The Federalist:

Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) gave a passionate speech to the House of Representatives floor Monday outlining examples of times that Democrat Senators attacked judges during their confirmation hearings for simply being conservative. His speech comes just two days after President Donald Trump nominated federal judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court to replace the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Roy, who served as a lawyer on the Senate Judiciary Committee for five years, claimed that the confirmation hearings of federal and Supreme Court judges Janice Rogers Brown, Priscilla Owen, Clarence Thomas, Miguel Estrada, Robert Bork,  Samuel Alito, and Brett Kavanaugh were “complete horror shows” and an “utter disgrace.”
