No one should be surprised Joe Biden called for unity, with 17 highly offensive, partisan, economically damaging executive orders on his desk. No one is surprised Biden bashed Trump for COVID, then admitted no plan. No one should be surprised Biden is crippling American energy independence, outlawing pipelines, drilling, and fracking after promising jobs. Words are cheap, especially Biden’s.
No one should be surprised Biden pledged to “fire on the spot” White House staff who disrespected others – yet keeps a foul-mouthed staffer who berated a female reporter with profanity, threatened to “destroy” her, if she reported on a conflict of interest. If that story is a “one day wonder,” the bigger story is this: Biden seems to mean nothing he says.
The issue of duplicitous politicians is not new, but extreme forms invite scrutiny – and danger. In short, as wide as the margins are these days for tolerating hypocrisy, Biden pushes the limits. This has real implications, and they go beyond the obvious.
Americans have just been lectured by congressional Democrats to ignore the Constitution’s text, caselaw and history, put aside the iconic pledge of due process and tolerate a legal standard that aims to impeach a president on a free speech standard that would convict half of Congress for “incitement,” and criminalizes citizen free speech.
The spectacle of chasing a former president, was objectively embarrassing. It struck the world as a classic political “show trial,” the sort of “gotcha” politics Americans were supposed to be above, the sort we tell others not to conduct, yet conducted in violation of our Constitution.
During that travesty, now settling, Biden said nothing. Graduating at the bottom of his law class, not practicing for 50 years, he may not remember free speech. But it remains real in law and – to most Americans – in practice, as does the public expectation that words matter.
Moving beyond free speech, here is the issue. If a president repeatedly says he will do something, means something, stands for something, pledges to act in a certain way – and does not do so, and in fact does the opposite from expedience or duplicity, two things happen.
First, the American people begin to see that he is a paper tiger, a man without convictions, someone who – whether you like or hate his promises – does not deliver with fidelity, predictability, or integrity. Many who did not like Trump, saw his resolve to deliver, a commitment to make real what he promised – border wall and military spending to reduced regulation and taxes, record economic growth, wages, and employment to calling out China.
Here is the second implication – and it matters. Anyone who promises and does not deliver, despite being able to, to his own people is a pushover. He is a paper tiger, weak player on the world stage. Joining things, issuing memos, hyping long term goals is well and good. But a president who will not honor pledges he makes to his own people, who will not even fire a White House staffer who makes a fool of him, is a weak link.
Do not think, for one moment, that China, Russia, Iran, North Korea, Syria, Turkey, Cuba, Venezuela, half the Middle East and all of Europe, with dozens of other countries are not looking with clear eyes, eagerly rethinking options, recognizing that tough talk and aviator glasses are cheap, snowflakes on a desert, gone in heat. Biden’s behavior suggests malign opportunity.
Our adversaries are assessing Biden, and what they see – unless he reverses the impression fast – is weakness, profound and consistent, bumbling and bleached out, stumbling and stuck in a time warp where words are enough to stop hungry, powerful, anti-Western, insatiable adversaries.
Bottom line is this: So far, the Biden team looks like a gaggle of young geese, a field of bump-and-go goslings, sure they know which way to go, paying no attention to each other, little to the president, preening before cameras. And Biden is letting them do so, as if all this were a game.
It is not. International opportunists, like eager predators – state and non-state adversaries – are measuring the Biden team’s depth and resolve, seriousness, organization, gamesmanship, experience, qualifications, courage, willingness to take hard decisions, capacity to unify – and finding them objectively wanting. Few could reach any other conclusion.
Odds grow each day that Biden will be sorely tested by foreign adversaries, likely on multiple fronts at once with direct or surrogate actions, maybe both, and maybe coordinated. As Biden’s politically correct, internally preoccupied, blame -America team churns cheap words, obsessed with militarizing Washington (wholly unnecessary), vetting the American military for “extremists” (ditto), defunding law enforcement (tragic), those with a bead on us watch – and plan. Things need to change fast, signals get sent – or things may change not at our behest. In short, words are cheap. Our adversaries know it. We need to make them count and keep ours.
Am very afraid for our Country. Always worked & paid my fair share. Why do some people thing they should have everything for nothing ??????
Excellent article Mr. Charles. For the Dems to use Biden is a disgrace. Too many Dems are not Dems but evil persons who have sold their souls. They work only for themselves and their own interests and think they are above the law and everything else. As long as nothing is done to stop them, they will not stop their evil ways leading to destruction.
All those people in DC are not there for the people of this country or for that matter they are not even there for the country. They are under the power of evil. All we can hope for is this in in our Lord’s plan and he will take care of his followers.
Great article Mr. Charles!
This is exactly what uninformed elected ( or not).
The saying goes ” if you don’t stand for something, you stand for nothing “.
There you go sleepy Joe, 47 years don’t lie!
No surprise. Jesus warned of great deception.
Biden’s idea of “unity” is eradicating anyone that does not agree with the ultra liberal platform of control of America and it’s people. The democratic platform is a disgrace to freedom loving people. Those who continually vote for these people must have a mental illness or just cannot become independent from the many government freebies that this party offers. It’s not the corrupt politicians folks as much as the weak minded people that continue to place these people in office.
It is the corrupt Politicians because they are good at deception to get elected and other means that are not legal or ethical. Obama is a good example. I agree about the weak minded too though. They live in their own little world and go their merry way without thinking or researching. Politicians are the worst predators on earth.
CeeDee comments below covers emails/phone calls only to The Governor, Election Officials, Senators and Representatives – no rioting allowed. Physical confrontation gains nothing.
AMAC should be stressing the importance of letting your Governor, Election officials and Senators and Representatives know of your dissatisfactions of Biden’s Executive Orders and the lack of response from the Supreme Court to hear the election fraud cases. Our voices need to be heard. Don’t stand back and complain just take action. The squeaky wheel gets heard.
The Supreme Court has already ruled on the Fraud Case – it was dismissed because there was no evidence. Affidavits from people who say they saw something are not evidence – that is hearsay. Evidence is more than he said she said. It is hard proof. Every single law suit filed by the former President was rejected for lack of evidence. The courts require truth and evidence – not lies and deception. If you believe that Dominion voting machines were corrupted by a dead Ceasar Chavez in Venezuela. Then you are at odds with slander and liable law suits files by Dominion and Smartmatic companies. Lou Dobbs was removed because Fox knows he lied and he was an employee, not an opinion contractor like Carlson and Hannity. Opinions don’t have to be factual – their words are protected just like yours under the First Amendment. But it is against the law to tell out right lies to hurt the value and future business of a company. Fox knows this. This will be another case if it goes to trial and the public gets to see the depositions from the respective parties where the truth will come out because you can’t lie in Court. Fox will probably settle for at least a billion and have a non-disclosure agreement to keep it all quiet. Only time will tell.
The Supreme Court did NOT “dismiss because there was no evidence”. They refused to hear the case “without comment”. There is one case before them from Pennsylvania still pending, I believe. Also, it’s ‘libel’ laws not liable laws. Of the lower courts that actually heard any evidence of fraud, 2/3 were settled in Trump’s favor. The overwhelming majority of courts just refused to listen to any evidence for “lack of standing” or timeliness, too late. NO court has, or will, EVER see or hear the evidence.
They don’t want to hear it. They’re part of the evil scheme
Wow! You’re completely drunk on the Liberal Kool Aid..!
You’re just as crazy as they are
Absolutely! It must be done or this evil will destroy us all. Pray for our country and our good leaders!
Everyone send an email to your Governor, state senators and representative to tell them the President’s actions on climate is hurting working people- ex. XL Pipeline, his permitting transgender males to compete against girls and women. His firing of Attorney Generals who are investigating or prosecuting the members of the Democract party; the president’s lack of talking to foreign state leaders with the exception of china and his Executive orders that should be going through Congress to review and vote on. Above all to stop the hatred of the former President, Donald Trump passing a bill in attempt to take away all the perks that he would be allowed to after he left office. The Democracts are acting childish.
President China, sorry president J. Biden. Safe bet; he will do a lot for China and his family will make $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$.
For our nation, Biden and his Demshevik hordes represent an existential threat. This impending catastrophe is unfolding within a feedback loop that will be running eternally within an unending nightmare.
You must not have been paying much attention when Bill Clinton and Barack Obama were Presidents. If their lips were moving, they were lying. Barack Obama was especially skilled at having you watch what he was doing with his right hand when he was really doing something else against the country with his left. He bragged about having perfected that skill in one of his first two books.
I really appreciate all AMAC does and thank God I discovered your organization. Keep up the good work.
Biden and Harris,
Does more than scare us.
What America used to hold dear,
Is now politically correct queer.
Oh, LORD God, may we return to You,
Pilgrims and Founders, what they thought of You!
It was no mere chance or coincidence,
Your guiding hand and good providence.
Through all their speeches and their prayer,
It was evidenced everywhere.
The Pilgrims were faced with a major drought,
Mighty God, still answers prayer, they found out!
Reaching back through the echoes of time,
The Red Sea and Armada, You remind!
Divine miracles through Israel’s history,
Yet, God’s love and justice remain a mystery?
How can a nation on the Bible found,
So quickly be leveled to the ground?
Even at this moment that I speak,
Childhood memories on the mountain peak!
The Ten Commandments in the Public Schools,
The Bible was read to “all of the pupils”!
We were blessed as one thing was understood,
Knowing God through His Word, the desired good!
A century after the Constitution,
The Public Schools had the solution.
Pennsylvania, a key state back then,
Read the Bible, first thing – was written in pen,
If a teacher was found to be remiss,
That teacher they would promptly dismiss!
Incredibly now evolution is taught,
Biblical principles we have forgot!
Without a return and sincere repentance,
America is due God’s death sentence!
I am a Christian, only in that regard,
Proclaiming what will happen is not that hard!
From a Scripture founding to pagan today,
The just Judge of the universe will weigh!
Mr. Charles, I found Amac after getting a email from a friend who shared your story about the Cardinal bird. I liked most of what you said. Then I saw your bio about being a Bush era Republican. I voted for Reagan, Bush 41 and twice for Bush 43. So I clicked on your name and found Amac. But the first article that I read was more of the Trump garbage propaganda and I was ashamed for you. I am looking for real Republicans that believe in the Constitution. I mean believe and support it, not the way Trump would hug the flag and say that the election was stolen and only he can save our country. This is such an obvious ploy that I am continually disappointed that intelligent people no matter their party affiliation can support someone who has stated in public that he wants to be President for Life. He also probably wants his children to inherit the Presidency after him. I call this a dictatorship. You and others like you who care more about Power than the Constitution think it is great. We are not going to be a socialist society. That is anti-democratic. We are for the people and by the people – not one person who wants to be a demi-god.
You’re talking about Democraps, not Trump. If he said he wanted to be “President for life” it would have been in jest to tweak the MSM and the Left. Sounds like you are a leftist. You people don’t have any sense of humor or sarcasm at all.
“don’t have any sense of humor or sarcasm at all”?
This person (sam) seems to have been spoon fed the talking points for the DNC platform. As far as Trump “hugging the flag” is concerned, at least there was a flag in the picture! If you were to look back at the Dem debates, there were NO flags to be found anywhere on the debate stage.
For various reasons our country is slowly being taken over by communists. The democrats have come full circle.
They were always the party of hate (check your history), and have slowly but surely poisoned our young. Apparently they have gotten to sam as well.
What a shame!
No I guess I don’t have any sense of humor when the President lies to over 70 million of his supporters and says the election was stolen. Mr. Charles knows it was not stolen. Not one Republican elected leader will stand up and swear under oath the there was enough fraud in the 2020 election to give the Presidency to Trump. Not one. As the Trump administration said over and over “It is not illegal to lie to the media and the public.” I am just so disappointed that people don’t want to seek the truth, but would rather live in the Trump bubble and only want to see what they want to see – not reality. I am not left or right, but I am a Patriot and I support the Constitution and what it stands for with all my heart and mind.
Trump’s statement about President for Life wasn’t humorous or sarcastic. He is trying to overthrow a legitimately elected President to hold power. Otherwise, he would not continue the Big Lie. I am sorry that Trump is getting sued left and right, but sooner or later he will be forced in a court deposition to tell the truth or face perjury. Of course after he admits he lost he will spin it out differently and tell all of you he was forced to say it, but he still won’t concede and most of you will believe him. You will drink the Kool-aid.
Lastly, do you see the hatred in your own words – Democraps. I don’t call all Republicans evil. You are not my enemy. The lies and lack of honesty are the enemy of the people. I think most of us love God and Jesus and want to live by the “Golden Rule”. My resentment against Trump is that he has brought such a hateful divided discourse into our country. We used to be able to pull together in a time of Crisis like Covid, but no – the right hates the left and maybe the left hates the right. I don’t know. I can’t speak for others. But I do know that what I read and see on social media is sad and Un-American. We are better than this. We should show mercy, not hate. We should work together to get rid of this plague and not make mask wearing a stigma. If we don’t beat the virus before the different mutations take over – we will live with this the rest of our lives – just like the flu only worse.
God Bless America.
I am sorry I said “you drink the Kool-aid.” that was insensitive of me.
It was not Trump spreading the lies. It was the MSM spreading never ending lies ABOUT what Trump actually did or said which you apparently believe. “If you tell a lie often enough, it becomes the truth.” Josef Goebbels, Hltler’s propaganda minister.
Right…And Corn Pop Was A Bad Dude.
You’re an idiot
We really need to pay attention and ready to face what is going to happen and give our best to our country before it is too far gone!!! The Bible tells us about the wars between good and evil!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Biden is led, he cannot lead. Everytime he mentions that there are no Democrats and no Republicans, just Americans. Hold on, because he is about to “stick it to” the nation.
Biden is a liar and a thief!
NOT my President!
EVERYONE who voted for this corrupt,47 year washington failure shouldn’t be surprised he is a disaster!
The democrat is the party of failure.
As the saying goes you can’t fix stupi*!
You got that Right!
I am sorry Garye that you are the others are so hateful. This is what Trump has done to our country. Have you looked back at the real history of both parties. Our fragile democracy is an experiment that has survived for more than 200 years, but now we are on the verge of a civil war and I am afraid it will be bloody. We only throw stones at each other. We do not look for our common principles. We will never become a Communist or Socialist country because their economic systems don’t work. We are the U.S.A. because we have capitalism and free speech and the right of every citizen to vote and seek the American Dream. We are entrepreneurs and innovators and we will solve the climate crisis. We are the best country on earth and we will continue to be the best place in the world to live. However, we are being tested right now with a prospect of Fascism which is a dictatorship. If we allow the social order to turn upside down and lies become truth then we are doomed to divide ourselves and lose what we have accomplished.
I think the Covid crisis will be the instrument of our destruction if we let it happen. Everyone was forced to stay home last spring and Facebook and especially Twitter became our window on the world. And the common values splintered and the polarization that was left and right, blue and red became even more destructive. We are on the brink of disaster as a country. I do not want the fences to remain around the Capitol. I do not want black men and women to be unjustly terrified by authorities and others because of their skin color. I want peace and love. We all need to reach deep down inside ourselves and look into our hearts and souls. There is love and evil in all of us. Let’s find the love and most importantly forgiveness we all deserve.
I was going to ask if you are misguided or just misinformed but I’m not sure even those terms encompass your completely distorted view of reality. It was the LEFT and the MSM that opposed EVERYTHING Trump tried to do about the COVID situation. If Trump tried to put travel restrictions on from hotbeds of COVID outbreaks (China/Italy), he was deemed “xenophobic”. At the exact same time period, Pelosi and Bloomberg declared it was perfectly safe to patronize their Chinatowns during the Chinese New Year celebrations and Fauci was saying it was perfectly safe to go on a cruise. Then they turned right around and claimed Trump ‘didn’t act fast enough’. If Trump didn’t echo their constantly flip-flopping edicts, he ‘wasn’t listening to the ‘science”. Fauci has flip-flopped back and forth on the value of wearing masks so many times since Feb. 2020 who knows where he’ll be tomorrow. Today he’s advocating two masks. In March 2020, he said he really didn’t see any value in them. When Trump espoused the same instructions Fauci was issuing (mask wearing/distancing), Fauci would back track and change the guidelines. It didn’t take Trump long to see Fauci was undermining his efforts and started consulting other actual in-the-field scientists for more accurate information. Fauci does NOT work with actual patients, and has not for years, if ever. He’s a theoretician. He also has a financial interest in the Wuhan lab. I believe he was instrumental in setting up the bat flu experimentation that goes on there.
Try reading the Time magazine article that came out a couple of weeks ago. They are so proud of their manipulation of information and dissemination of propaganda for the past five years, they just had to write an article documenting what they did. They did everything but come right out and confess to actual voter fraud because they knew they would be incriminating themselves in actual criminal activity.
Try investigating actual, documented information once in awhile. Quit taking everything the MSM tells you at face value. The truth is out there. Unfortunately, you have to look for it because Big Tech and the MSM are doing everything in their power to keep you from finding it.
Cannot reason with the likes of his kind. Sounds like he is writing from the Alcatraz of DC.
Keep watching MSNBC….CNN…The View. Hilariously Blinded.
The meat puppet poster boy demonstrated on Day One that he was capable of only one thing, signing everything placed before him. This Lt. Colonel Blake clone’s call for “Unity” to me is a more desperate cry of “Please don’t do this to me”, the “this” being the way the true President was treated for the four glorious years he was in office. His accomplishments are amazing when you consider that the things he signed bolstered America, Americans and our welfare and that he did it while fighting off the Dimocrats with the other hand. Remarkable what a non-politician businessman could do when running the country as a business and not, as is the present occupant of the Oval Office, into the ground.
