I doubt even Joe is dumb enough to move on guns with his poll numbers. Stampy Feet did it because he had the popularity to spend. If Joe does it it’s because he’s got nothing left to lose.

Maybe even the worst first year of any world leader in history. Even the Roman emperor Nero had a better first year in power.
^^^^^^^^^
No not yet, but he has three more years to go. Look up Andrew Johnson and how he really fucked up the country after the Civil War. It was messed up for decades because of his policies.

Senate Republicans Wednesday filibustered Democrat-backed election legislation, denying it the 60 votes it needed to advance and setting up a potential "nuclear option" gambit by Majority Leader Chuck Schumer to use a party-line vote to lower the filibuster threshold for the legislation.

All Republicans voted against a procedural vote on the legislation, which combines two major election bills. The result was a 49-51 vote after Schumer, D-N.Y., changed his vote to the prevailing side so he could offer a motion to reconsider. All other Democrats voted in the affirmative.

Now Schumer is expected initiate a "nuclear option" to try to get rid of the 60-vote threshold entirely so Democrats can pass their election legislation.

I will only quote here the beginning and the end

Just a month before the 2020 election, radio host Rush Limbaugh commented that Democrats “resent the whole premise behind elections. Look, they don’t believe they should have to persuade anybody to agree with them … The modern-day Democrats have to go through the motions of campaigning, and they have to go through the motions of trying to win the hearts and minds of voters. But they resent the h-ll out of it. And in their world, it’s the one thing standing in their way: This need, this requirement to win elections. And I’m just telling you: As soon as they can figure out a way to eliminate elections, they will do it.”

Maybe there’s a logical reason, a method to their madness. After pulling off the statistics-bending, six-fold swing-state wonder in the wee hours of election night 2020, perhaps Democrats now have reason to believe they’re no longer accountable to voters. Public opinion and polls become meaningless when you control the election process, when the courts turn a blind eye, and when the media blocks any honest inquiry.

Rush was right. Democrats are now working harder to change the election system than to change your mind because, as their actions demonstrate, they don’t care what you think. They just want to win.

What a jackass; people from both parties in WV like Manchin. No amount of leftist blathering is going to change that. The only thing that will keep Manchin out of office will be if he chooses to leave of his own accord. I cannot speak for Sinema’s position. Arizona has suffered a huge influx of leftist trash and illegal invaders alike.

An excerpt from an Opinion piece in the WSJ by Peggy Noonan.

His national political career began exactly 50 years ago, in early 1972. He was an obscure Delaware county councilman, 29 years old, a dashing, charismatic nobody. Republican J. Caleb Boggs was running for his third term in the Senate. Boggs was beloved in Delaware, a former governor, a Republican moderate who voted for the 1964 and ’68 Civil Rights Acts and helped put Thurgood Marshall on the Supreme Court. Senate Democrats loved him too: His good nature and common touch helped make the place run.

No one would challenge Boggs, but young Joe Biden looked at him and thought: “He’s tired.” By which he meant: He’s old. Boggs turned 63 that year, which seemed older then than now. Mr. Biden ran against him vowing to be an “activist” senator, who’d put energy in the state, which needed “change.” At one point Boggs was ahead 30 points. Mr. Biden had no money or name recognition, but he had “a great radio voice,” and he ran not so much on policies as on a mood—fresh, vital youth must take its place. It was the first federal election in which 18-year-olds could vote.

In the biggest congressional upset of 1972, Mr. Biden beat Cale Boggs by 1.5 points, and his great career began.

Now he is the target of the kind of critique he used against Boggs, coming from his natural opposition but also from within his own party: he’s lost his bite, he’s not quite with it, he’s . . . old.

Themes repeat themselves in life. What goes around, comes around, and politics is a rough old business.

More voters believe Trump was legitimately elected than Biden, poll

https://justthenews.com/politi..._campaign=newsletter

More voters (61%) believe that former President Donald Trump was legitimately elected in 2016, than believe President Biden was legitimately elected in 2020 (57%), according to a new poll from Scott Rasmussen.

The national survey also found that just 26% of voters believe the correct candidate was declared in each of those elections, conveying a stark lack of trust in the U.S. election system by the American people.

Fifty-five percent of voters believe that activists and politicians from both major parties would steal an election, if they thought they could get away with it.

About one-third of voters (33%) disagree with that sentiment. While Democrats are evenly divided on the question, more Republicans and Independents believe both sides would cheat.

The poll results arrive as states and parties enter the 2022 midterm election, and Democrats in the U.S. Senate fail to pass an election reform overhaul package that would place a significant amount of control over elections in the hands of politicians in Washington, D.C.

On the matter of election reform, 50% of those polled say the priority should be making it harder to cheat, while 38% say the priority should be making it easier to vote. On the whole, a supermajority of voters (84%) believe the goal of any election reform should be to create a system where it is "easy to vote and hard to cheat."

Is America Heading for a Systems Collapse?

https://www.theepochtimes.com/...m_campaign=ZeroHedge

In modern times, as in ancient Rome, several nations have suffered a “systems collapse.” The term describes the sudden inability of once-prosperous populations to continue with what had ensured the good life as they knew it.

Abruptly, the population cannot buy, or even find, once plentiful necessities. They feel their streets are unsafe. Laws go unenforced or are enforced inequitably. Every day things stop working. The government turns from reliable to capricious if not hostile.

Consider contemporary Venezuela. By 2010, the once well-off oil-exporting country was mired in a self-created mess. Food became scarce, crime ubiquitous.

Radical socialism, nationalization, corruption, jailing opponents, and the destruction of constitutional norms were the culprits.

Between 2009 and 2016, a once relatively stable Greece nearly became a Third World country. So did Great Britain in its socialist days of the 1970s.

Joe Biden’s young presidency may already be leading the United States into a similar meltdown.

Hard Left “woke” ideology has all but obliterated the idea of a border. Millions of impoverished foreigners are entering the United States illegally—and during a pandemic without either COVID-19 tests or vaccinations.

The health bureaucracies have lost credibility as official communiques on masks, herd and acquired immunity, vaccinations, and comorbidities apparently change and adjust to perceived political realities.

After decades of improving race relations, America is regressing into a pre-modern tribal society.

Crime soars. Inflation roars. Meritocracy is libeled and so we are governed more by ideology and tribe.

The soaring prices of the stuff of life—fuel, food, housing, health care, transportation—are strangling the middle class.

Millions stay home, content to be paid by the state not to work. Supply shortages and empty shelves are the new norm.

Nineteenth-century-style train robberies are back. So is 1970s urban violence, replete with looting, carjackings, and random murdering of the innocent.

After the Afghanistan debacle, we have returned to the dark days following defeat in Vietnam, when U.S. deterrence abroad was likewise shattered, and global terrorism and instability were the norms abroad.

Who could have believed a year ago that America would now beg Saudi Arabia and Russia to pump more oil—as we pulled our own oil leases, and canceled pipelines and oil fields?

Our path to systems collapse is not due to an earthquake, climate change, a nuclear war, or even the COVID-19 pandemic.

Instead, most of our maladies are self-inflicted. They are the direct result of woke ideologies that are both cruel and antithetical to traditional American pragmatism.

Hard-Left district attorneys in our major cities refuse to charge thousands of arrested criminals—relying instead on bankrupt social justice theories.

Law enforcement has been arbitrarily defunded and libeled. Police deterrence is lost, so looters, vandals, thieves, and murderers more freely prey on the public.

“Modern monetary theory” deludes ideologues that printing trillions of dollars can enrich the public, even as the ensuing inflation is making people poorer.

“Critical race theory” absurdly dictates that current “good” racism can correct the effects of past bad racism. A once tolerant, multiracial nation is resembling the factionalism of the former Yugoslavia.

The culprit again is a callous woke ideology that posits little value for individuals, prioritizing only the so-called collective agenda.

Woke’s trademark is “equity,” or a forced equality of result. Practically, we are becoming a comic-book version of victims and victimizers, with woke opportunists playacting as our superheroes.

Strangest in 2021 was the systematic attack on our ancient institutions, as we scapegoated our ancestors for our own incompetencies.

The woke have waged a veritable war against the 233-year-old Electoral College and the right of states to set their own balloting laws in national elections, the 180-year-old filibuster, the 150-year-old nine-person Supreme Court, and the 60-year-old, 50-state union.

The U.S. military, Department of Justice, FBI, CIA, Center for Disease Control, and National Institutes of Health until recently were revered. Their top echelons were staffed by career professionals mostly immune to the politics of the day.

Not now. These bureaus and agencies are losing public confidence and support. Citizens fear rather than respect Washington grandees who have weaponized politics ahead of public service.

Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Mark Milley, Attorney General Merrick Garland, former FBI heads like James Comey and Andrew McCabe, retired CIA director John Brennan, and Anthony Fauci head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases—have all politicalized and vastly exceeded their professional purviews.

They sounded off in public fora as if they were elected legislators up for reelection. Some lied under oath. Others demonized critics. Most sought to become media darlings.

This governmental freefall is overseen by a tragically bewildered, petulant, and incompetent president. In his confusion, an increasingly unpopular President Joe Biden seems to believe his divisive chaos is working, belittling his political opponents as racist Confederate rebels.

As we head into the 2022 midterm elections, who will stop our descent into collective poverty, division, and self-inflicted madness?

Victor Davis Hanson
