  3. We had a good thing going, but lotsa people didn’t like Trump.
    All of this was to get Trump out of office.
    We knew about Biden before all this came up.

  4. America was way better off with Trump.

    “US was better with President Trump than with President Biden”

    https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/us-was-better-with-president-trump-than-with-president-biden

    “President Joe Biden was supposed to bring welcome change from Donald Trump. He was going to be the “nice guy” president. He was not going to lie. He was going to be competent and respected.

    Eight months into his presidency, he has not done any of these things. Instead, he has left the clear impression that he is in way over his head and that the United States was better under Trump than Biden.

    Biden has gotten himself into far more trouble than anyone could have imagined in such a short time in office. He has been the opposite of what was advertised. His has been an administration of dishonesty, chaos, and incompetence, and we still have 40 months left to go.

    First, consider the COVID-19 pandemic. Biden was supposed to be the antidote to Trump’s alleged mishandling of the virus. Yet, the weekly average of COVID-19 deaths is higher now than it was in September 2020. This is even more troubling considering vaccines are available now, whereas a year ago, they were not.

    Next, the country’s border situation. Biden’s executive actions in his first 100 days reversed several of Trump’s immigration policies. The result has been an illegal immigration crisis, a national security calamit y, and a humanitarian catastrophe plaguing the southwest border.

    Trump had stabilized the situation through enforcement and diplomacy with Mexico. Now, the Biden has put out the welcome mat, and illegal immigrant crossings are at their highest level in over two decades — exceeding 210,000. There have been more apprehensions of illegal immigrants now than at any time since April 2000 , and they are all turning themselves in on purpose because they know Biden will let them stay.

    Even as illegal border crossings are at record highs , expulsions of illegal immigrants are declining rapidly under Biden.

    Several other quality of life issues that affect people’s everyday experience have plagued the country since Biden became president. Gas prices are at the highest they have been in years. Inflation is surging . Lackluster job growth is undermining the notion his “Build Back Better” program is helping the country.

    Then there was the Afghanistan fiasco, Biden’s biggest embarrassment to date. Biden was caught urging foreign officials to lie about the circumstances so he would not suffer quite as much public opinion fallout. Intelligence community assumptions about the Taliban were later revealed to be false. Biden abandoned Americans in Afghanistan days after he claimed he would never do such a thing and then blamed the people stranded there.

    Admitted Biden’s chaotic and disorderly retreat, more U.S. service members were killed in one day than had been in any of the last five years. The international community lost faith in Biden’s leadership. This folly made Biden look disorganized, inefficient, and inexperienced.”

  5. Biden is once again politicizing the IRS.

    “Banks Asking Customers to Tell Congress to Oppose Biden’s IRS Snooping Plans

    FCN Bank: “We work for our customers and our Community, not the IRS.”

    https://legalinsurrection.com/2021/09/banks-asking-customers-to-tell-congress-to-oppose-bidens-irs-snooping-plans/

    “f the Democrats gave a damn about the wealthy paying their supposed fair share they’d eliminate the deductions and write-offs in the tax code.

    They don’t care because that’d mean they’d have to give those up as well.

    Instead, the Democrats are using the “fair share” argument as a way to spy and snoop on you:

    It’s not yet clear what the ultimate proposal may look like, but in written testimony from June 8, IRS Commissioner Charles P. Rettig described a reporting regimen that would require gross, annual inflows and outflows from “all business and personal accounts from financial institutions, including bank, loan, and investment accounts” containing at least $600. Unlike some have falsely reported, the plan does not call for monitoring individual transactions, but rather it focuses on the total, annual flow of funds.

    The low threshold is designed to flag taxpayers who report little income but hide large amounts of money by moving it through different accounts, Chuck Marr, a senior director of federal tax policy at the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, told Politico.

    “It just helps the IRS get better at finding noncompliance, finding people who are cheating,” Marr said.”

    ——-

    “But the main thing is privacy:

    Privacy concerns are cited as one of the top reasons why individuals choose not to open financial accounts and participate in the financial system. This proposal would almost certainly undermine efforts to reach vulnerable populations and unbanked households. In addition to the significant challenges associated with protecting this new data, policymakers should consider the potential consequences of leveraging trusted financial relationships to execute such a large-scale and detailed reporting regime. The American people feel strongly about their right to privacy and it is not reasonable to undermine their financial privacy without a clearly articulated purpose.”

    “Brazilian President Teaches NYC’s de Blasio and Dems a Big Lesson About COVID and Immunity”

    https://redstate.com/nick-arama/2021/09/21/brazilian-president-teaches-nycs-de-blasio-and-dems-a-big-lesson-about-covid-and-immunity-n446181

    “There’s a big scientific point that Joe Biden and most Democrats seem to be missing with the effort to push vaccination mandates.

    In addition to the basic freedom problem with a government mandate — that what you put in your body should be between you and your doctor, not you and your government — they don’t seem to understand or care about natural immunity that people might have because they previously had the virus.

    But the Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro taught that lesson in a big way, visiting New York City for the UN General Assembly today. We reported earlier about Joe Biden trying to limit his interactions there, likely to prevent more gaffes, but with the excuse given that they’re concerned about the UN event becoming a super spreader.

    New York City has a proof of vaccination requirement for some indoor businesses including restaurants, entertainment venues, and gyms. They said that the UN General Assembly came under that requirement. The UN said they would require it on the ‘honor system’ but allowed unvaccinated leaders in to make their speeches.

    Bolsonaro is the only G20 leader not vaccinated. He said that there was no reason for him to be vaccinated because he already had the virus. “Why take the vaccine? To have antibodies, isn’t that right? My antibody levels are way up high,” he said last week.

    Now that’s a basic fact that Joe Biden and others ignore in the calculations — that a good part of the unvaccinated might have natural immunity because they already had the virus. That’s the science, but many seem to ignore that basic fact.

    From Washington Examiner:

    Several studies have proven that the immunity acquired by previously having the virus is significantly better than immunity from vaccination. The largest study on this subject, conducted in Israel with more than 700,000 people, found that those with natural immunity were 96.3% less likely than never-infected and vaccinated people to contract COVID-19 for a second time and develop symptoms from it. This confirmed what researchers had been saying for months: Natural immunity is both effective and long-lasting , even against the virus’s variants.

    But Bolsonaro was attacked by Mayor Bill de Blasio.

    From NY Post:

    “We need to send a message to all the world leaders, including most notably Bolsonaro from Brazil, that if you intend to come here, you need to be vaccinated,” de Blasio said while holding his daily briefing.

    “If you don’t want to be vaccinated, don’t bother coming because everyone should be safe together.”

    That of course is ridiculous and anti-science. How about amplifying actual science — instead instead of blind obedience to a mandate for everyone? That would then highlight a whole segment of the population that may have antibodies to the virus, which the Biden Administration is not doing now.

    Then de Blasio embarrassed himself by tweeting a vaccination link at the Brazilian president.”

    But Bolosonaro came anyway, despite the rude words from de Blasio.

    Bolsonaro posted on Instagram about eating pizza with other members of his delegation on a NYC sidewalk, “Let’s go for pizza with Coca Cola.” Liberal media falsely claimed he was “forced” to eat outdoors because in NYC, you can’t eat indoors unless you show proof of vaccination, again showing the failure to consider natural immunity. But actually, the pizza place had no indoor seating. But he got his New York pizza.”

  7. Oh, and DeBlasio, Biden, and the rest of Democrats are racists because their mandates disproportionally adversely effect blacks, at least according to the rules they’ve established.

    Some rioting is in order, is it not?

    “Black Lives Matter to NYC: COVID Vaccine ‘Mandate Will Not be Another Racist Social-Distance Practice’

    “Black people are not going to stand by, or you will see another uprising. And that is not a threat; that is a promise. The vaccination passport is not a free passport to racism.”

    https://legalinsurrection.com/2021/09/black-lives-matter-to-nyc-covid-vaccine-mandate-will-not-be-another-racist-social-distance-practice/

    “Anyone with a brain cell saw this coming a mile away.

    New York City has a COVID vaccine mandate. Officials think it will encourage people to get the vaccine. How nice of them to reward or punish you based on you injecting something into your body.

    Officials proved they don’t research or emerge from their echo chamber because we all know a lot of black people are not vaccinated. A simple Google search backs up that statement. Blacks do not trust the government.

    Black Lives Matter (BLM) NYC and other organizations lashed out at NYC in front of Carmine’s in the Upper West Side over the mandate.

    Three black women from Texas showed their vaccine cards to get a seat at Carmine’s. Two men attempted to join them but the hostess refused one since he did not have proof of the vaccine.

    An argument happened and the manager led the party outside as the women joined the men. Then a brawl broke out with the women attacking the hostess.

    The women accused the hostess of using a racial slur. The hostess accused them of using fake vaccination cards. A fight broke out and NYPD arrested the three women.

    BLM NYC and others held a “Cancel Carmine’s” protest outside of the restaurant:

    BLM NYC co-founder and chairman Hank Newsome alleged that the restaurant staff treated the black women with hostility and accused Carmine’s of covering up “their employees’ actions by using the vaccination passport as an excuse.” He demanded that Carmine’s release its video footage of the incident, which he believes will settle that the hostess was the antagonizer and that the three women were wrongfully charged.

    Chivona Newsome, the other co-founder of BLM NYC, targeted Mayor Bill de Blasio’s vaccine mandate more specifically in her remarks. She implied that the edict has resulted in repeats of historical episodes when blacks were disenfranchised from society.

    “Being a doctor does not protect you from anti-blackness. Having a vaccination card does not protect you from discrimination. The 1964 Civil Rights Act prohibits the actions of Carmine’s. It says it is illegal to discriminate against you on the basis of race,” she said.
    “Seventy-two percent of black people in this city from ages 18 to 44 are unvaccinated. So what is going to stop the Gestapo, I mean the NYPD, from rounding up black people, from snatching them off the train, off the bus?” she added.

    Newsome warned if incidents like the one at Carmine’s happens again and again BLM “would revolt.”

    Newsome warned: “We’re putting this city on notice, that your mandate will not be another racist social-distance practice. Black people are not going to stand by, or you will see another uprising. And that is not a threat; that is a promise. The vaccination passport is not a free passport to racism.”

    Black Women’s March co-founder Kimberly Bernard stated: “We are serving notice on the mayor, on the governor, on the restaurant industry that we will not allow for you to use this pandemic, vaccination cards, and masks as another reason to be racist, to put us in prison. Because there’s enough of us in there.””

    A few people tried to blame Republicans, former President Donald Trump, Fox News, etc.

    A woman named Maya told National Review her community has trouble realizing it’s the Democrats who have led the charge over vaccines and lockdowns:

    “Most black people aren’t going to acknowledge that the Democratic Party has disenfranchised us. Malcom X said it’s fox and wolves. The fox pretends to be your friend to your face but passes laws behind your back to harm you. The wolf is not your friend, they don’t like you, and they treat you as such. But who do you respect more? Black people tend to fall for the fox,” Maya said.

    She said her job is in jeopardy now because she’s refused the vaccine, another issue of economic equity that she says Democrats are not acknowledging.

    “This vaccine mandate is disproportionately affecting people of color. People shouldn’t be forced to do it. It’s ‘for your health,’ but they’re willing to ruin people’s lives to protect against a virus with over a 99 percent survival rate. . . . This is going to be the new Jim Crow, and it’s going to affect mostly people of color,” she said.”

    “Catch and release: Biden makes mockery of his pledge to send home Haitian migrants by RELEASING thousands into America with just 1,000 deported since Sunday. So why should they stop coming?”

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-10011617/Options-shrink-Haitian-migrants-straddling-Texas-border.html

    “Thousands of Haitian migrants are being freed into the US on a ‘very, very large scale’ rather than being flown out on deportation flights as the Biden administration promised, according to officials.

    Two US officials with knowledge of the situation in Del Rio – where a peak of around 14,600 mostly Haitian migrants were camped out under a bridge at the weekend after crossing into the US from Mexico – said thousands have been released into the US with notices to appear at an immigration court in 60 days’ time under the so-called ‘catch and release’ scheme.

    Others have been sent on buses and planes to other parts of the US to be processed by Border Patrol agents there, they said. ”

    “Many Haitian migrants camped in a small Texas border town are being released in the United States, two U.S. officials said, undercutting the Biden administration’s public statements that the thousands in the camp faced immediate expulsion.

    Haitians have been freed on a “very, very large scale” in recent days, according to one U.S. official who put the figure in the thousands. The official, who has direct knowledge of operations, was not authorized to discuss the matter Tuesday and spoke on condition of anonymity.

    Many have been released with notices to appear at an immigration office within 60 days, an outcome that requires less processing time from Border Patrol agents than ordering an appearance in immigration court and points to the speed at which authorities are moving, the official said.”

    The Homeland Security Department has been busing Haitians from Del Rio to El Paso, Laredo and the Rio Grande Valley along the Texas border, and this week added flights to Tucson, Arizona, the official said. They are processed by the Border Patrol at those locations.

    A second U.S. official, also with direct knowledge and speaking on the condition of anonymity, said large numbers of Haitians were being processed under immigration laws and not being placed on expulsion flights to Haiti that started Sunday. The official couldn’t be more specific about how many.”
