Joseph Biden has been President of the United States for one year – much longer than I expected him to last. Biden promised many things, but he is now known in some circles as “America’s promise breaker in chief.”
In his inaugural address, Biden
promised to unify Americans. “With unity we can do important things.” His words
brought hope until his actions became apparent. Biden has done more to divide
Americans than to unite them. Deroy Murdock reminded us of Biden’s actions.
Biden has split blacks and whites by
embracing critical race theory. He has cleaved “domestic terrorist” parents and
local school boards that they have challenged. Biden has pitted the vaccinated
against the unvaccinated.
And last week, he equated roughly half of
all Americans with Confederate President Jefferson Davis because they favor
election integrity and oppose his calls for junking the Senate filibuster and
for nationalizing state and local voting systems.
Biden made other promises that he
has failed to fulfill. He promised to return American to “normal” after the
Trump years. Murdock asked what many Americans are asking, “what’s so normal
about 7% inflation, soaring energy prices, broken supply chains, scores of
cargo ships marooned off the coast of Southern California’s ports, and ‘Wild
West”-style freight train robberies in Los Angeles?” What is so normal about
empty shelves in grocery stores? What is normal about a wide-open southern
border and 1.776 illegal aliens crossing it? What is normal about the record
number of homicides in Democrat-run cities?
Biden claimed that he would “shut
down the virus” if he were elected President. “Judging by the stunning
1,483,656 new COVID-19 cases that emerged on Janu. 10 alone, Biden clearly blew
it.” Murdock showed mercy to Biden for the exploding numbers because “Viruses
do not obey executive orders…. COVID-19 is a tiny, invisible monster that does
whatever it wants.”
did not show mercy to Biden “for the shortages in COVID-19 testing kits and infrastructure….
[particularly because] Biden foolishly rejected offers last fall to increase
test supplies.” Murdock also noted that Biden “has been so obsessed with
vaccine mandates, mask orders, and related heavy-handedness that he is presiding
over a shortage of lifesaving monoclonal antibody therapies.”
In addition, Biden messed up with
Afghanistan. He promised in his inaugural speech, “We will repair our alliances
and engage with the world once again.” However, he surrendered “U.S. citizens,
green card holders, and loyal Afghans to the bloodthirsty Taliban.” This was “bad
enough,” but he failed to “coordinate with British commanders in Kabul and his
days-long refusal to answer Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s urgent phone calls
trashed America’s ‘special relationship’ with London.”
Biden also messed up America’s relationship
with France when he failed “to inform France about a subsequent
U.S.-U.K.-Australia pact, which cost Paris a submarine contract. [This] led the
Quai d’Orsay to recall its ambassador to Washington for the first time since
Murdock concluded that Biden has kept only
one promise: he is not Donald Trump. However, Trump is known by both his
friends and foes as fulfilling many campaign promises.
During [Trump’s] first year in office, he
signed a $1.5 trillion tax rate cut, killed some 1,500 meddlesome regulations,
greenlighted the Keystone XL pipeline, scrapped Obamacare’s individual mandate
(but not the entire program), curbed southern border crossings, erased the ISIS
caliphate, and much more.
Biden is a failed President who has
not accomplished anything good for America. However, his policies have heavily
damaged the United States. His foreign policies have divided us from our allies
and caused our enemies to laugh at us. His domestic policies have brough nearly
two million illegal aliens into our nation. His economic policies have left us
with empty shelves in our grocery stores and supply lines stopped. The worst action
of all is that he has further divided our nation. He is the worst President in
my lifetime and maybe the worst in the history of our nation.
