The Dumpster Fire that Biden’s Fueling

A CNN poll in early February asked Americans what they thought of Biden’s presidency and what he’s done right since entering office Jan. 20, 2021. The top answer by a wide margin, according to that poll—hardly likely to be skewed against Biden and Democrats—was nothing at all

Over half of those surveyed couldn’t come up with a single success during Biden’s first year in office.

Americans are dubious about their leadership for a reason, since more than a few national challenges and outright catastrophes may be tied directly to the failures of this president and his political allies. 

Biden campaigned on a message of uniting the country, but the country seems more divided and fractured since he took office—except perhaps on appraisals of his job performance. 

Biden is now hitting record-low approval ratings for a president at this point in his term. 

Americans are dubious about their leadership for a reason, since more than a few national challenges and outright catastrophes may be tied directly to the failures of this president and his political allies. 

Here are some of them.

Border Crisis

Security at the southern border has been an ongoing disaster, though one barely given coverage by the legacy media. 

Since Biden took office, a historic surge of migrants has crossed the border illegally in numbers that are the highest in decades. And the problem isn’t abating

The Border Patrol has reported encountering 1 million illegal border crossers in the first six months of the current fiscal year. That’s on track to exceed the more than 1.7 million recorded the entire previous fiscal year. Now the administration is lifting former President Donald Trump’s invocation of Title 42, which denied migrants entry on public health grounds during the pandemic.

Title 42 is part of U.S. health law, specifically Section 262 of U.S. Code Title 42 which prohibits entry into the United States when the Director for Disease Control believes “there is a serious danger to the introduction of [a communicable] disease into the United States.” Essentially, depending on the health situation, the U.S. is able to prohibit entry to anyone except U.S. citizens, lawful permanent residents, and their spouses and children. 

We have every expectation that when [Title 42 is lifted], there will be an influx of people to the border,” White House communications director Kate Bedingfield told reporters last month. Homeland Security officials are preparing for 18,000 encounters a day. The New York Times further noted, “Democrats do not want the southwest border to appear out of control in the months ahead of the midterm elections, which would fuel more Republican attacks on the Biden administration’s border policies.”

That ship has sailed. The border has been a mess for the entirety of Joe Biden’s presidency, even if the White House has sought to avoid the word “crisis.” Some of Biden’s lowest job approval ratings concern his handling of immigration. Voters overwhelmingly oppose this Title 42 change specifically.

Americans in many places are forced to show their vaccine papers to go to a restaurant. The Biden administration tried to force Americans to get vaccinated or lose their jobs.  

At the same time, the Biden administration has been letting millions of people with no proof of vaccination—or proof of anything else—into the country.  

Afghanistan Withdrawal

Biden’s shambolic withdrawal from Afghanistan was certainly one of the low points of his presidency and one of the lowest points of American foreign policy since the fall of Saigon at the end of the Vietnam War. 

The Biden administration assured the country that the withdrawal would be orderly, and that the Afghanistan government was stable upon America’s departure.  

We clearly had a massive failure of intelligence, since the Afghanistan government collapsed and the Taliban took over the country in just a few weeks.   

To make matters worse, as the crisis was unfolding, Biden seemingly was nowhere to be found. The world witnessed a massive fiasco, with videos of Afghans falling off departing planes in a desperate attempt to escape, but the administration kept quiet, then made excuses. 


Inflation is raging at an annual rate of 8.5 percent up from 7.9 percent last month.  March’s extremely hot price growth of 1.2 percent pushes the nation’s inflation rate to levels not seen since the first few months of the Reagan administration in May, 1981.

Gas prices are just one of the everyday costs that have jumped as inflation hovers at an approximately 40-year high. The national average for a gallon hit $4.331 on March 11, the highest price on record, according to AAA. It has dropped off to an average of $4.098 as of Tuesday, but that’s still a significant increase from the $2.863 average a year ago. In some Northeast and West Coast states, gas prices are even higher. In California, for example, an average gallon of gas rang in at $5.748 as of Tuesday, according to AAA. CNBC


More than two years into a global pandemic that has claimed millions of lives, the U.S. government has finally launched what it calls a “one-stop shop” website for resources on Covid-19 services, mitigation and treatment options. While the page — — links to the existing tool for ordering rapid test kits, it mostly just aggregates information. That’s a far cry from the one-stop shop the Joe Biden administration led us to believe was in the offing. But even as an information tool, gets a failing grade. Washington Post

Crime Surge

American cities have experienced an explosion of violent crime since the summer of 2020. It’s a trend that shows no sign of abating. In December, ABC News reported that a dozen U.S. cities had set homicide records in 2021.  

This trend coincided with—and almost certainly was exacerbated by—the “defund the police” movement. In fact, many Democrat-run cities made good on this slogan by defunding their police departments and stemming the use of proactive policing.  

No surprise that cities that defunded police agencies often make the list of places with the largest increases in violent crime. Now, some of these city leaders are changing their tune and restoring police funding after much of the damage has been done. 

This hasn’t stopped reckless left-wing district attorneys, such as Chesa Boudin in San Francisco and Alvin Bragg in New York City, from selectively deciding not to prosecute crimes. 

Biden mostly has dodged the idea that radical policies embraced by his Democratic Party are to blame for this issue.  

Instead, Biden has pointed to the pandemic and guns as the cause of the sustained surge of violence and criminality, rather than the lawless riots and soft-on-crime policies. The president said he thinks police departments should get more money, which some took as a sign that he had departed from the message of left-wing activists.  Daily Signal

War on Women and Families

Violent crime is spinning out of control, but the Justice Department clearly doesn’t see that as the real threat to this country. No, the real threat is parents who disagree with what’s happening in their local schools.  

Parents around the country, even in far-left San Francisco, have been organizing in response to the misguided and often egregious policies of many K-12 schools. 

From the inclusion of critical race theory, gender and trans ideas in classroom curriculum to over-the-top COVID-19 restrictions that forced students to stay home for over a year or wear masks all day long, parents are fed up.

Girls in sport are seeing their recent gains in equality utterly erased as boys claim to be female and regular women are being compelled to share bathrooms, changing rooms and prison cells with main who identify as women yet still have male genitalia.

And we haven’t even gotten to China, Hunter, Joe’s lackluster performance on the world stage or his Russia response yet!
