“Folks, it’s not all Joe Biden’s fault that our nation is in trouble.
His utterly inept cabinet is also to blame.
Let’s start with Janet Yellen.
TREASURY SEC. JANET YELLEN BLASTED ON TWITTER AFTER ADMITTING ‘I WAS WRONG’ ON INFLATION: ‘RESIGN’
Yellen, the first female treasury secretary, appeared to be the most seasoned, the best credentialed and least political of all Biden’s cabinet appointees. Not so.
The treasury secretary recently confessed that she blew it on inflation. She didn’t apologize or admit its real cause, but at least she admitted she goofed.

She said, “I think I was wrong then about the path inflation would take … there have been unanticipated and large shocks to the economy … that I didn’t at the time fully understand.”
Yellen’s pitch is, essentially, that inflation blew in because of completely unpredictable events that no one could have anticipated. Untrue. Most economists agree that the Democrats’ $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan spilled too much money into the recovering economy at the same time that we had goods shortages, sparking rising prices.
In fact, a new book out says Yellen agreed with Larry Summers, who warned that Biden’s spending spree would have just that effect, and argued for a smaller American Rescue Plan. Though she denies that account, it rings true. In other words, she knew better. Far from being the intellectual anchor of this administration, Yellen turns out to be yet another shill for Democrats’ left-wing policies.
Next up: Homeland Security chief Alejandro Mayorkas, the first Latino in that role, who has permitted the worst-ever assault on our southern border, failed to deliver a plan to confront the crisis and who lied to Congress when he claimed our “border is secure.”
On Mayorkas’ watch, 1.2 million people have been apprehended trying to enter the U.S. illegally in the past seven months, of which nearly half a million were from countries other than Mexico or the northern triangle of Ecuador, Guatemala and El Salvador. The vast majority of those people are single adults – not families fleeing poverty, and the total includes 40 men on the terror watch list.
Under Mayorkas, deaths due to drug overdoses topped 100,000 for the first time ever, the vast majority (71,000) from fentanyl, imported from China and Mexico across our southern border.
Mayorkas whined to a censorious Congress last year that he worked “18 hours a day.” When Republicans take back control of the House this fall, they should impeach him and let him catch up on his beauty sleep.
Next up: Pete Buttigieg, the first gay secretary of Transportation, who has been Biden’s invisible point guy responsible for smoothing our supply chains. As his reward for disappearing during our clogged-ports crisis (he took a months-long parental leave last summer after adopting twins with his husband), he is now in charge of $660 billion of the White House’s infrastructure program, which he can dispense around the country in politically helpful ways. “
Comment: The combination of the hard-core neo-Bolsheviks, the post grad school Deep Staters and this menagerie of Democrat fantasy creatures is really deadly. And then there is Biden himself, a man who can’t understand why the citizenry no longer loves him. pl
Biden’s inept Cabinet shares blame for Biden’s many failures | Fox News
Also blame the people, especially R politicians, who voted this corrupt vegetable and his junta into office.
Just how many of the 80 million ballots Biden recieved did “R politicians” cast? Meanwhile, you left out the good oligarch, Zuckerberg, and his millions.
Well, Mitt Romney proudly did so as did other R pols. Each declared their intent proudly during the 2020 election. They were hoping for ‘normal’ with Biden. The big bucks guys do what they do. Our own–I’m assuming about you–, aiding and abetting is just galling. Their numbers are not the issue, their selling out is for me anyway.
Romney is a RINO never Trump senator from Utah, a state Trump won in 2020. You did not know that?
The good Col. is kind. Yellen did not goof. She lied. Any 12th grade H.S. Eco. student would understand that too many dollars chasing too few goods will cause inflation. This is basic Macro stuff she knows backwards and forwards. The regime knew they were brewing inflation. The question is why. SNAP usage is up, heating fuel subsidies will be announced this winter (I predict) and at gasoline prices perhaps gasoline subsidies will come as well. There is an undeniable attempt to completely socialize America. History shows socialism ultimately brings loss of civil liberty. We have a choice; fight it, yield our liberty to it, or divide ourselves from it. Many Americans would be happy as slaves to a socialist gov’t. Not everyone likes liberty. I think division of America has arrived. Anyone have any ideas on how to break America apart?
What broader geographic region than your neighbor’s yard do you propose?
“Not everyone likes liberty”. I fear it is even worse than that. We (many of us) have forgotten what liberty is. The term has become largely devoid of meaning much like “freedom” which is widely assumed nowadays, not to be the eternal process/struggle that it is, but instead a state, and one guaranteed by the government at that. This omnipresent word has degenerated into an empty marketing label like “green” or “smart” used to denote virtue or desirability.
Hans Morgenthau in Scientific Man vs. Power Politics (a must read these days btw) cites the rise of fascism in the 20th century as a symptom of the bankruptcy of the rationalist philosophy which dominates our age. We did not recognize fascism’s inherent evil until it was almost too late. We are there again.
“Build Back Better” is the agenda of Davos – the Great Reset. Biden and his menagerie have no answers themselves and so have been easily sold on the technological solution to all our woes promoted by the WEF. Science will save the day, after all science can’t be bad can it? This is the outsourcing/offshoring of politics itself, the stepping stone to Technocracy. Aside from the usual bickering over the details, there is as yet no collective voice in Congress challenging the profound immorality and anti-human nature of the agenda.
Whilst our politicians and those who elect them still cling to the belief that rationalism will provide the solution to all of society’s problems we will remain in mortal danger. These days the Devil himself could dress up his plans in scientific language add some slick marketing and most folk would not bat an eyelid.
“Fifteen days to flatten the curve.”
*They flattened it all right. And if *they’d left it at that we might have come out the other side fairly well but *they simply couldn’t allow that. So now the yoke is pushed full forward and it’s nosedive into the ground territory.
(Peak ‘liberty’ I reckon ended sometime in the mid-70s, near as I can determine.)
Biden was not voted into office. The election was stolen. The people voted for Trump. But the will of the people does not matter if Dominion counts the votes, because they invent false votes and throw out the real votes they don’t like .
“Though she denies that account, it rings true.”
An Arkie anecdote. second week of May 2021: Watching all the dosh washing outta DC I laid in:
Two sets of tires (I didn’t at the time yet need) one set for my truck, one for the girlfriend’s car. – And the pattern holds.
Two serpentine belts, four sets of air filters, two cases of oil for my pickup – two bottles for her (she uses synthetic), spark plugs, four sets of wiper blades, some other vehicle stuff.
412 gallons of propane – topped off my 500 gallon tank : I average using 215+/- per winter. 4, six gallon tanks for my gen-set – unused so far.
An “extra” freezer, half a steer, half a hog. (Girlfriend insisted, “I’ll help out by raising chickens, like Grandma did!” So far, no chickens yet.)
“Pre-paid” the local Amish for a summer’s – est. – household of two’s worth of produce ( a word to the wise concerning “dickering with the Amish” : Mind your shirt).
Some miscellaneous stuff. Bills paid off.
I drive a circa 90s pickup, and keep an “older” project pickup in the barn (in running condition and it stays tagged and insured) the girlfriend’s car well … .
Now. As to “Was it worth it?” Aside from the price for a gallon of propane the only other example I got regards the tires – Childhood Friend up the road some uses the same size tires and only a month or so was complaining “Damn JK, you checked the prices for tires lately?” I replied “Nope. Why?” Turns out tires are up sixty bucks – each.
Times 5 Mrs Yellen.
How cosmically humorous of the Godowiczbergsteins behind the screens. Pete (Mayo Pete, just call me Pete) Bootyguage, sorry, Buttigeiger, oops – you know tha thing – our Transportation Secretionary, sorry, Secretary – you know tha thing (again). His slurname , oops there I go again (wrong Potus, sorry) surname, begins with Butt, and his Office’s name with Trans.
It’s better than a self-licking ice cream cone, especially for Mayor Pete. It’s a self-Xicking ice cream cone. Hint for missing X: see party affiliation. By which I meay to say, the Democrats have a positive talent for ….ing themselves as well as everyone else.
The post is spot on, especially as regards the clowns put into cabinet positions, appointed with no regard to their qualifications for the jobs, but solely for the symbolism of their peculiar niche in society, like Mayor Pete, a pretty boy homosexual; check that box. Then you have “Rachel Levine”, check the cross dresser box. And there are others, Austin for one.
That’s Admiral Levine A. Pols for us commoners.
Addictions to couping countries and printing money never end well.
Screwing the pooch is a virulent, highly transmissible disease. At least Johnny Depp has put an end for now to #metoo.
People get the government they deserve.
The Trump campaign ran a totally inept campaign and followed up with no preparation for the inevitable stealing.
Trump is entertaining with great ideas, but is an absolutely terrible manager, surrounding himself with backstabbers and suckups.
Still, a lot of somebodies voted for a demented corrupt career hack and a bunch of 20-somethings who despise this country.
No more “mean tweets.”
These people are to smart for so many mistakes, they are doing it on purpose.
Compare and contrast:
This collection of people, which once was a nation, is subject irreconcilable differences. There are those who wish personal liberty and those who are content w/slavery. No compromise is possible. Imagine the opportunities for Russia and China in the American northwest and the Mexicans in the southwest while Americans engage in civil war. The carnage of civil war will be unbelievable. Formerly the ballot box prevented such demise but I am an “election was stolen believer”. So I don’t believe there is repair in elections. The two opposite types in America don’t like each other and won’t live together w/o one subduing the other. Irreconcilable difference is where we are. Now, how to break apart w/o the horror of civil war. Let’s see, you guys get Tennessee and Kentucky and we’ll take Ohio and Illinois . Ok but Montana, the Dakotas, Utah, Wyoming, Nebraska, and, well, you get the problem.
