Americans have never witnessed a week like the one we just went through. We’ve never seen an occupant of the White House go through such a string of amazing losses as Joe Biden just did. I thought maybe I would get tired of all the losing, since there was so much of it. But fortunately for America, every loss that Joe Biden suffers is actually good news for the country. Just as we never got tired of all the winning that happened under Donald Trump, we should never get tired of watching Joe Biden lose. Such a loser! Just look at the string of catastrophic losses that Joe Biden suffered in one week.
First, the Supreme Court handed Joe Biden a major loss by striking down his OSHA vaccine mandate. It wasn’t even a close decision. In a 6-3 ruling, the court declared Biden’s vaccine mandate on all employees working for large companies to be unconstitutional. Such a huge loss! Hopefully it sent a much-needed message to a bunch of other world leaders trying to force their subjects to get COVID shots. Well. Probably not.
But the beauty of the Supreme Court striking down the OSHA mandate was that Team Biden didn’t even have a Plan B. All they could do was shrug and sputter as the court turned their tyrannical dreams into a smoldering pile of rubble on the ash heap of history.
Next, Biden announced that it was time to strangle the filibuster in its crib. With the filibuster out of the way, the Democrat Party would really be able to stick it to you smelly Americans for thinking this was your country. Joe Biden has had it up to HERE with you Americans and your norms and standards and “democracy,” so he was going to have the Senate eliminate the filibuster. This would allow Joe Biden to win, win, WIN every time – no matter how crazy or unconstitutional his ideas are.
Joe Biden was so confident that this plan would work that he invited Senators Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) to the White House for dinner this week. This was a foolproof plan. Joe would get a little win into the Senators, offer them some bribes, one thing might lead to another and then POOF! No more filibuster!
It must have been a total bummer the next morning when Manchin and Sinema both gave reasonable statements about why they could not and would not vote to eliminate the filibuster. Such a loss! Such a huge, huge loss for Joe Biden!
But the preservation of the filibuster was just the “one” of a “one-two” punch that Joe Biden’s agenda was about to face. Biden had been campaigning hard to pass the Democrats’ election cheating bill into law. If that bill passed, the incumbent Democrats in Washington, DC would have full control over all state and local elections in America forever. They could cheat in elections to their hearts’ content.
Voter ID would be banned in every state. Ballot drop boxes, ballot harvesting, illegal aliens and dead people being enfranchised to vote like never before. It would be a democracy utopia for the Democrat Party. All of us smelly Americans would never be able to get in their way again.
But… another little problem with that. The Democrats didn’t have 60 votes in the Senate to overcome the filibuster. And since the filibuster wasn’t going anywhere, BOOM! Another big ‘L’ for Joe Biden’s column.
And another big loss came for Biden before the end of the day on Thursday. The Producer Price Index announced that inflation crushed American families and businesses at a hot-hot-hot 9.7% during Joe Biden’s first year in his stolen office. That news was so bad that Biden issued a statement and for the first time, admitted that inflation was hurting American families. Yeesh! It was so bad that even the White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said that Biden “owns” that failure. Hahahahaha!
I can’t help but compare that catastrophic string of losses to another White House occupant: Gerald Ford. Remember him? Yeah, Gerald Ford was the only other person besides Joe Biden to end up in the White House without winning an election. But not even Gerald Ford was as big a loser as Joe Biden has turned out to be this week. At least people like Ford. Plus, Ford managed to sign the Helsinki Accords with the Soviets. What’s Joe Biden done with his first year in office? Besides losing time and time again?
