If You Didn't Believe in a Biden Effect, Believe It Now

america in decline

Craig Shirley By Friday, 17 March 2023 01:02 PM EDT Current | Bio | Archive

Banks, as we speak, are failing.

Ask yourself this very important question: When was the last time banks failed?

The early 1930’s?

More failures (banks and otherwise) are coming.

The stock market isn't just having a bad day or two, it's crashing.

If you haven't noticed, nothing is going right in America.

If you happen to be on the left, America's decline more than amounts to a dream come true.

But, for the rest of the country, the patriotic God-fearing America, there is a malaise: a palpable sense of hopelessness.

Now we're getting lectured by, of all countries, Mexico — on our culture.

The border is of course out of control. Millions of illegal immigrants invade our nation.

They're not seeking to better themselves or contribute to our country in any meaningful way. They're looking for freebies.

Meanwhile, Joseph Robinette Biden makes fun of people who simply want to "Make America Great Again."

Our president is no commander in chief, he is the worst leader in U.S. history.

There no mincing of words in this regard; now is not the time.

We are witnessing what this writer rightfully identifies as, "The Biden Effect;" a corollary to "The New Malaise" of which I wrote recently.

Biden has turned a once self-confident nation into a land of cowards and victims.

Which is what he wanted to do. Sadly, for far too many, playing the victim card works.

Thus, we no longer have the confidence to shoot for the stars, much less a high-orbit.

We get excited about rockets going suborbital.

Stark reminder: Alan Shepard was going suborbital 60 years ago.

The final humiliation?

When we want to send Americans into space, we have to hitch a ride with the Russians, whom Ronald Reagan crushed years ago when he won the Cold War.

A war he won for us.

A nation which once defeated the Axis Powers; a nation which defeated the evil Soviet Union can’t even stop third-world Russia from successfully invading a tiny country like Ukraine.

Biden has made us a nation of snowflakes.

We used to have a saying during the hallowed Reagan years: "Everything that is supposed to be going up is going up. And everything that is supposed to be going down is going down."

The reverse is true for Number 46.

We’ve never had unabridged unity in this country. That of course is a fallacy.

But . . . we did have respect for ourselves, and from the world.

No longer now.

Racial tensions are at an all-time high.

In case you haven’t noticed this as well, wokesters hate traditionalists.

City dwellers hate country folk. Think Barack H. Obama's 2008 paen: "They get bitter, they cling to guns or religion . . . "

Atheists hate religious people.

  • Liberals are chasing conservative judges off campuses.
  • Liberals are beating up conservatives on campuses.
  • Liberals are censoring conservatives.
  • Liberals are abusing power.
  • Liberals are stalking U.S. Supreme Court justices.
  • Liberals are burning down cities.
  • Liberals are advocating the killing of conservatives like Hanoi Jane Fonda and Steve Schmitt have advocated.

Because of liberals like Biden, cities have been transformed into cesspools of human garbage.

Name one thing Biden has succeeded during the past two years?


Americans died with his foolish decision to withdraw.

But he didn’t care; he was too busy looking at his watch when the bodies of murdered Marines finally came home.


Nope, he is a miserable failure there as well. Millions are hurting. The market is tumbling.

We’ve lost our status globally. This writer wrote in a piece not too long ago that Joe Biden was the worst president in U.S. history.

Nothing he has done convinces anybody that he is not King Tantalus of Greek mythology; every good thing eludes him.

Recently, an MSNBC talking head compared Biden to Ronald Reagan?

Who are you kidding? Definitely not me. Most certainly, not good Americans.

Reagan was one of our four greatest presidents.

Biden, in short order, will be consigned to the ash heap of history.

But, by Biden’s standards he is not incompetent; he is doing precisely what he wants to do, elevating his inner circle cronies so that, like the French autocratic monarchy, they will control the levers of power while they demoralize and run down the rest of America.

Liberalism is an ideology for those not really interested in capitalism or winning at much of anything.

Biden is liberalism's avatar.

For us it's no masquerade, or any other party you can think of.

It's very real. It's hurting, if not destroying us.

Right before our very eyes.
