From the border to the economy to America’s energy independence to Middle East stability, the Biden Administration has been acting like a giant wrecking ball, from day one reversing every policy Trump put in place, even if it was working perfectly, because “TRUUUUUMP!!!!” And now, with the disasters starting to pile up, it appears that President Biden can’t even keep track of all the messes he caused himself.

On Thursday, Biden gave a speech lamenting that “right here in America, we pay the highest prescription drug costs of any developed nation in the world.” As an example, he went on at great length about a diabetic small business owner named Gail from Denver whom he met recently, and who has to pay high prices for insulin.

He used that as a springboard to talk about the 34 million other Americans suffering from high insulin prices and his plan to lower the cost.

It didn’t take long for many people online to remind him that one of his first actions as President was to inexplicably reverse a Trump executive order that would have lowered the cost of insulin and EpiPens by making clinics pass discounts on to patients that usually went to middle men.

There are more details at the link. The excuse was that Trump’s order was facing lawsuits by drug makers and had to be vetted to ensure it was lawful. Question: would ANY policy that lowers drug costs not face lawsuits by drug makers? Instead of fighting the lawsuits, Biden reversed Trump’s policy that would have lowered insulin prices, and now he’s lamenting high insulin prices. It’s possible he did actually forget that he signed that. Still, I find his concern about this issue about as convincing as his concern about our porous Southern border that only became porous after he took a wrecking ball to it.

Related: Ironically, considering Biden claimed he was bringing back respect for the law by reversing all those Trump policies, a federal judge Friday ruled that Biden acted illegally and harmfully in reversing the Trump-era “Remain in Mexico” policy on migrants.

With the US facing record numbers of illegal border crossings, the judge sided with Texas and Missouri in their lawsuit against Biden and ordered the Administration "to enforce and implement” the Remain in Mexico policy in good faith until it has been "lawfully rescinded" in compliance with the Administrative Procedures Act, and until the federal government has enough detention capacity.

Now, let’s see if President “Restore Respect For Law and the Constitution” will flagrantly ignore this court order the way he ignored the one on the rent moratorium. I can only imagine what Democrats would have done if Trump showed such utter contempt for the courts, considering they impeached him twice for (A.) making a phone call and (B.) making a speech.

We should all give a big thanks to Sen. Ted Cruz for being awake and alert at 3:30 a.m. Wednesday morning and saving American democracy.

After 15 mind-numbing hours of amendment votes on the Democrats’ $3.2 TRILLION spending orgy bill, Senate “Majority” Leader Chuck Schumer attempted to sneak the “For The People” Act (aka, the “Legalize Vote Fraud” Act) into the mix, in hopes that sleep-deprived Republicans wouldn’t notice and would fail to object, thereby approving it by unanimous consent. But Cruz rose and objected repeatedly, stopping Schumer in his tracks.

Cruz called the bill a “federal takeover of elections” and a “massive power grab by Democrats” that would do the opposite of its title by ensuring that the people can’t vote politicians out of office. He elaborated that it would “strike down virtually every reasonable voter integrity law in the country, including voter ID laws supported by the overwhelming majority of this country, including prohibitions on ballot harvesting, again widely supported by people in this country. It would mandate that felons be allowed to vote, and it would automatically register millions of illegal aliens to vote. It would profoundly undermine democracy in this country…”

Yes, but “for the people!”

The defeated Schumer hilariously grumbled, “Let there be no mistake about what is going on here. We have reached a point in this chamber where Republicans appear to oppose any measure — any measure, no matter how common sense — to protect voting rights and strengthen our democracy.”

That’s funny, because if you replaced the word “Republicans” with “Democrats,” that would be a perfect description of what Democrats are trying to do all over the nation to block common sense election integrity measures and to destroy them completely with the “Legalize Vote Fraud” Act.

Weekend Reading

August 15, 2021

While we take a little time off, here are a couple of articles to provide food for serious thought. First, Scott McKay at The American Spectator assesses how badly the Republicans and conservatives have failed in stopping the far-left from overwhelming America and argues that if we are going to save this nation and restore our founding principles, we need a new movement. In that regard, he says the media were wrong about Trump. He wasn’t a “messiah” figure to his supporters. He was more like John the Baptist, sounding the alarm and setting the table for what’s coming.

And Deborah Bucknam at the American Thinker has an article that should be required reading for every American, but especially those who live in cities and states ravaged by decades of one-party Democrat rule, but who keep reelecting them because no matter how badly they ruin people’s lives, they say you can’t vote for Republicans because they’re “racist.”

It’s a detailed look back at the long, deep, ugly history of racism in the Democratic Party (the Republican Party was actually founded to force the Democrats to give up their slaves.) But it’s not just 18th century racism. Like the Energizer Bunny, Democrat Party racism just keeps going and going, from the Civil War to the KKK to Jim Crow to the poll tax (that Republicans tried to end) and right up to today, when they want to defund the police in crime-ridden, riot-torn black neighborhoods while keeping their own private security; bring back segregation in schools; and judge people solely by their skin color, only they now call that “Critical Race Theory” rather than what it really is: racism.

I hope minorities who keep reelecting Democrats because they believe the endless lies that Republicans are “racist” will read this and consider Einstein’s rule that insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result.
