NEW YORK — Some 80 million ballots were cast for Joe Biden last fall, many because voters believed that he would bring America “back to normal” — such as it was before Donald J. Trump’s highly effective, albeit-tumultuous, presidency. Nearly two months into the Biden Era, voters should feel betrayed. Nothing comes close to normal.

Start with the catastrophe on the U.S.-Mexico border. Biden promised a 100-day moratorium on deportations of illegal aliens, including violent criminals. His campaign website still pledges to “Reverse Trump’s public charge rule” and make America “open and welcoming to all, not just the wealthy.” This includes those who show up and then sign up for government assistance. 

Biden said he would “Increase the number of refugees we welcome into the country.” On Day One, he halted southern-border-wall construction and junked Trump’s Remain in Mexico policy. Biden soon scrapped Trump’s anti-caravan pacts with El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras. He then unveiled an eight-year path to citizenship for illegals.

These policies screamed, “¡Ven y cógelo!” — “Come and get it!”

Biden personally engineered a humanitarian, medical, and national-security disaster. 

Last month, U.S. Customs and Border Protection encountered 100,441 illegal aliens on the southern frontier, up 97 percent, year on year. As of March 14, CBP had 13,000 unaccompanied minors in custody versus 3,200 last week — up 406 percent. 

Biden is releasing COVID-19-positive illegals into America and apparently leaving thousands more untested. House Democrats on Wednesday sank Iowa Republican Rep. Marianette Miller-Meeks’ bill to require illegals to test COVID-19-negative before entering the USA.

Team Biden has capsized Team Trump’s transparency. It has gagged Border Patrol agents and blocked journalists who try to document the pandemonium in Biden-Harris’ child-clogged detention facilities or “reception centers,” as they propose to rebrand them. Why not call them concierge desks?

Also, three Yemenis and a Serb on the FBI’s terrorist-watch list were nabbed at the border since October. How many others slipped through?

While the border resembles a house with a wide-open garage door, the U.S. Capitol echoes East Berlin. A huge fence, topped with concertina wire, has surrounded America’s legislature since January 6’s deadly riot. Absent any discernable threat, National Guard chief General Daniel R. Hokanson tried to withdraw 2,280 troops deployed on Capitol Hill.

However, Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin overruled Hokanson and ordered these guardsmen to stay until May 23. Team Biden now owns this military occupation against nothing in particular.

Unlike President Trump’s five, bipartisan COVID-19 relief bills, Biden’s $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan passed Congress with only Democrat votes. Atop other outrages, this spend-o-rama provides $1,400 stimulus checks to federal and state inmates. 

The White House announced that it would re-open America’s K-12 classrooms. Overpromising and underdelivering, the goal is merely to teach in person in at least half of schools for at least one day per week.

Meanwhile, cancel culture is thriving. Beloved toys and characters such as Mr. Potato Head, Dumbo, Pepe Le Pew, Peter Pan, and Speedy Gonzalez have been ostracized as — what else? — racist, sexist, and gender-binary. Biden fueled this national menace by purging Dr. Seuss from the annual Read Across America Day proclamation on March 2, Seuss’ birthday. This reinforced Dr. Seuss Enterprises’ ceased publication of six titles that previously had harmed no one. eBay then banned used copies of these volumes. This carbon-neutral book burning perfectly suits America’s neo-totalitarian Left.

New presidents usually lead press conferences by this point. Instead, Biden has held zero such events in his first 57 days. Biden plans a presser for March 28 — Day 64 of his presidency. Such stage fright pre-dates President Herbert Hoover.

By their first March 16, these presidents had conducted multiple solo press conferences: Trump five, Obama two, G.W. Bush three, and Bill Clinton six.

One might applaud these changes as triumphs of social justice or assail them as the hardest-Left broadside against the American Way ever. But nobody can call Biden’s first two months a return to normal.

80 million reportedly voted for Xiden/Camel, huh? 72 million reportedly voted for Trump, huh? My numbers may be off but my point is there aren’t that many total registered voters in the US. Where did the excess votes come from? Anyone with a logical brain knows: fraud, lieing, cheating, voting machine algorithism changes, duplicating votes, same ballots counted mutiple times, dead people voting, illegals voting, you name the ways. NEVER my administration! Never my president or vp. (Lower case on purpose.) May they rot in you know where.

What you say is true. This is my country and in old age I am stuck here. I worked all my life, paid taxes and expected to live in peace. My question? Why are we letting this happen and never made a serious attempt to stop it for the last 50 years. American politicians disgust me. I am through with it and voting. If I could, I would be out of this miserable commie stronghold this minute.

AREN’T YOU SICK AND TIRED OF ALL THIS BS? TIME TO IMPEACH BIDEN AND HARRIS!

WE THE PEOPLE (aka SILENT MAJORITY) had countless opportunities to have stopped this nightmare, but we chose to give the DEMOCRATS what they expected of us, to REMAIN SILENT! Thus, making us equally complicit in the fraud perpetrated against United States Americans!

Isn’t it time you actually did something, took action? How much more damage needs to be done?

I urge everyone who reads this to PICK UP THE PHONE and call your REP AND SENATORS in DC and DEMAND IMMEDIATE IMPEACHMENT OF BIDEN AND HARRIS.

BIDEN is completely UNFIT FOR OFFICE! Can you continue to tolerate gasoline prices, product prices all going up, the WH being run by Harris, Pelosi and Schumer? Literally destroying our country, allowing thousand upon thousands of illegals into our country bringing in God knows what diseases?

Then copy and paste this information into an E-Mail and send to friends and family asking them to make the calls, then forward on to their friends asking them to make the calls and forward on! WE NEED TO MAKE THIS GO VIRAL!

Biden is far-leftist; far-leftist isn’t “normal”. Who didn’t understand that? Even though Biden tried to hide what he is (and the media helped him) during his basement campaign, his background and long career in the Senate projected it.

If anyone thinks Biden is not physically and mentally disabled they need a reality check. He is the puppet led round by his wife and manipulated by the real powers running the office. He is nothing more than a mouthpiece voicing what others tell him to. The embarrassment of China insulting our negotiator and country in Alaska meetings, Putin spitting in the face of Biden with nary a whimper in defense as well as the education secretary who looks and acts like a circus clown is ample proof it is not an intellectually competent man as president.

My favorite comment about the ImPOTUS (Imposter, Impotent, Imbecile) was on another blog describing his “so called” presidency: here it is:

And that is exactly why Joey is there – no brain left at all.
He’s a walking encephalographic flat line.

Love it! Walking encephalographic flat line………..that’s what’s representing the USA.

No wonder China, Russia, the Taliban, North Korea and Iran are threatening the USA. They are threatening a corpse…….

Don’t worry. Biden will go to meet his Maker any day now. Kamala will be betrayed and strike out at members of Congress, especially Pelosi – who will lose her gavel, because Kamala has dirt on so many of them. When the Congress/Senate is cleaned out all that will be left are those with no criminal activity on their record. Trump will return and serve 4 more years very soon! Count on it! It comes from the Highest Authority. 😉

You give Kamala way too much credit. She will do what Obama, Soros and Hillary tell her to do while they and major industry rape America of every penny and destroy what is left of our economy and our children. It’s already almost too late to fix the damage. Don’t count on the the Republucans. They are disorganized and are jumping ship like rats now that they are needed more then ever.

She was obama’s pick to be VP. Biden gets 2 years if he lives that long. The plan if they stick to it is for kamelia to takek office Jan/Feb 2023. Right now pete buttchecks will be the new VP but that is not a final decision and won’t be until after the 2022 mid terms.

Abnormal Joe! He definitely is not my president. He is a liar and the Democrat Political Party cheated to get him into office. Thanks to Covid we will never get to the bottom of it. One thing for sure is that mail-in voting needs to be eliminated. The Democrats use it to cheat and everybody KNOWS it.

Biden and the Democrat Political Party are doing everything they can to destroy our country. I would personally like to thank every fool that voted for this moron. Your stupidity is astounding.

It’s patently clear that Biden is out to destroy America and Americans. Why in God’s name would he declair a free open entrance to our country, inviting mobs of poor unmerited people, who have Covid 19, into our already taxed to the limit country.
If he’s not a madman, the people who are obvously controlling him are seditionists. That means people who are out to destroy us.
As the other powerful nations show, in the past week, there is NO RESPECT for joe biden and his RULING as a dictator of our country.
They are OPENLY LAUGHING at him and the circus mob of people he or his handlers have placed in position of authority.
China openly disrespected the moron who is supposed to be the Secretary of state. They NEVER would have acted that way to the face of President Trump’s Secretary Pompeo. He was a master at handeling world problems and their slippery lying appointees.
Putin made a mockery of biden, by laughing in his face after his rediculous act of being a tough guy and letting that weasel goad him into saying that Putin is a killer.
Putin laughed in his face and CHALLANGED HIM to a debate.
How sickening that the man supposed to be the most powerful leader In the world was HUMILIATED and made a joke of in front of the entire world. And he’s our president.
Trump had the entire world’s attention and fear. He made the United States of America respected again. I don’t know about you but im sick to my stomach and so ashamed that this is now the person called the president of MY COUNTRY.

The absolute worst. And he was gonna level with us when he made a mistake. The border and his other wondrous actions have been flops. The COVID thing that he so unabashedly took claim for was already on auto-pilot. No leveling at all. Just digging himself into a bigger and bigger hole. Some achievement!
