'Build Back Better'? Biden Agenda Leftist Business as Usual

'Build Back Better'? Biden Agenda Leftist Business as Usual

President Biden’s "Build Back Better" campaign is turning out to be nothing more than the Obama administration’s failures on steroids.

News veteran, speechwriter, and Newsmax columnist Suzanne Downing couldn’t help but overhear a conversation among a group of retired men while on a ferry taking her to Seattle from Bainbridge Island, Washington — a bastion of liberal thought.

"Did you hear President Biden's 25-minute speech?" she recalled one man asked the group. "What really struck me is how empathetic he was, just so empathetic, something that's been missing the past four years.”

In short, they seemed pleased that Biden was making America "normal" again — you know, back when politicians ran things instead of hard-nosed businessmen.

On Sunday Legal Insurrection published a stunning list of events that occurred just within the previous seven days, and they each demonstrate America’s decline. Included among the 21 stories that made the news during the past week are:

  • Ford Motor Company announced a decision to move a plant from Ohio to Mexico, raising the ire of the United Auto Workers
  • There are now reportedly 13,000 unaccompanied migrant children in U.S. custody, a number that continues to grow
  • Biden said he will fly illegal migrants up to the northern border states for processing, to ease the situation at the southern border (which is emphatically not a crisis)
  • The performance of U.S. diplomates at the hands of their Chinese counterparts at the Alaska summit was embarrassing and humiliating
  • Violence by Antifa activists in Portland, Oregon continues despite the new administration, with murder rates actually on the rise
  • Both Iran and China have stepped up their construction of underground missile facilities
  • A month after Biden’s reversed the Trump-era terrorist designation on the Iran-backed Houthis group, it stepped up drone strikes against Saudi Arabian oil facilities

In addition, the Biden administration announced that it will spend $86 million on hotel rooms to house the growing number of illegal migrants.

Keep in mind all these events were reported within the last week. It doesn’t include the thousands of jobs lost by shutting down construction of the border wall and the Keystone XL pipeline, nor the jobs lost on gas and oil exploration and extraction on federal lands.

From the actions of both China and Iran, plus Biden’s refusal to accept Russia President Vladimir Putin’s challenge to a televised debate, it’s clear that our enemies no longer fear us — in fact, they regard the United States as a weak opponent.

It’s just as clear that our allies no longer respect us. Australia’s Sky News has been especially brutal and honest. Here are a few examples:

  • On Sunday Sky News host James Morrow reported that a "weak" President Biden suffered a “tremendous diplomatic humiliation” by senior Chinese officials in Alaska which shows how Beijing thinks it’s "in the driver’s seat now."
  • Last month Sky News host Alan Jones said Biden continues to "blunder on" while enjoying a “dream honeymoon” from the U.S. media.
  • In January, weeks before the inauguration, Sky News host Paul Murray said that a Biden presidency seems like a “transition to inevitable Harris administration.”

On the other hand, one of the diplomatic triumphs of the Trump administration took root and continues to grow and bear fruit.

The Abraham Accords, the unprecedented Trump-brokered agreements to normalize relations between Israel and four other Arabian Gulf countries, is about to add four more nations to the list, which will further isolate Iran from its neighbors.

"I brought… four peace agreements, and there are another four on the way,” Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu asserted last week during an interview with the Hebrew-language Ynet news site. "I talked about one of them yesterday."

Because of the current weak leadership, our enemies no longer fear us; out allies no longer respect us.

But it must seem just like old times to the liberal retired gents that Suzanne Downing overheard on that ferry ride — you know, when America wasn’t quite so great and a president bowed before kings and rulers.

Weak leadership never ends well, and it often leads to war.

But it’s all "business as usual" for Joe Biden.
