Democrat dilemma? Yeah, where you voted not specifically for Joe Biden, but whipped into a frenzy by the media to vote against the bad orange man, Donald Trump?

A lie doesn't become truth, wrong doesn't become right, and evil doesn't become good, just because it's accepted by a majority.” – Booker T. Washington

(1)  Will Biden be an absentee president?

While it was customary for Biden’s handlers to call a “lid” while candidate Joe Biden kept to himself in his basement bunker, nobody expected such behavior only four days into his presidency. Thus raising issues of energy, stamina, and fitness for office. Who is the person behind the President at these times? “Doctor” Jill Biden? A nurse or handler?


(2)  Does he understand or even care about what he is signing?


What were we thinking? It appears that several unions that endorsed Joe Biden found out the hard way that Joe Biden meant what he said about killing the fossil fuel industry, including stopping the Keystone Pipeline and halting drilling permits on federal lands. Killing thousands of jobs, severely reducing revenues for cash-strapped underfunded union pension funds, municipalities, and states, and injuring the economy. How are they going to spin this?

"Killing 10,000 jobs and taking $2.2 billion in payroll out of workers' pockets is not what Americans need or want right now," said Andy Black, president and CEO of the Association of Oil Pipe Lines. <Source>


The United Association of Union Plumbers and Pipefitters (UA) today announced that the UA Political Engagement Committee (PEC) has concluded its endorsement process with a decision to endorse former Vice President Joe Biden for President. “We’re not going to sit on the sidelines at the UA. This endorsement is about putting UA members to work and fighting for fair wages and good benefits. Under a Biden Administration, that’s exactly what we’ll get,” said Mark McManus, General President of the United Association. “Let’s be real: nobody in the Oval Office will be with us on every single issue. But with his long history of standing shoulder to shoulder with working families and his commitment to an all-of-the-above energy approach that will mean more UA jobs, protecting the hard-earned retirements of our members, and appointing union-friendly judges, Joe Biden will be a fierce ally to our UA Brothers and Sisters in the White House.” <Source>

American Indians on the warpath?


Diversity and bathrooms…

It appears that boys who self declare as girls can not only use the girl’s bathrooms and locker-rooms, but they can also compete on girls' sports teams where they have a definite physical advantage. Boys who could barely compete against other boys are smoking the girl's events, denying them not only medals but athletic scholarships.

From his first days in office, Biden sounds like Bernie Sanders won the election. 

(3)  Is Biden a threat to national security?

There is little or no doubt that Biden's family was engaged in dodgy deals with China, had direct connections with the Chinese Communist intelligence and military officials, and now appears compromised.

Biden removes Trump order protecting US power grid from China

President Joe Biden has rescinded a Trump administration protection of the United State's power grid from foreign adversaries, through one of his several executive orders signed shortly after entering office.

Section 7, subsection C of the order suspends a Trump administration executive order for 90 days, called "Securing the United States Bulk-Power System", passed in May 2020 to protect the U.S. power grid from foreign access.

"The following actions are prohibited: any acquisition, importation, transfer, or installation of any bulk power system electric equipment," by persons or parties who may pose "an undue risk of sabotage to or subversion of the design, integrity, manufacturing, production, distribution, installation, operation, or maintenance of the bulk-power system in the United States," the Trump administration order reads. 

The measure was taken to ensure that the U.S. defense power grid was not exposed to enemies of the U.S. who could exploit an opening in access to hurt the nation. <Source>

For the GOP, this is an excellent start to the 2022 Congressional election.  Not so much for the nation. Where are we going to find a GOP leader who is not Trump?

In the Senate, self-serving Mitch McConnell is a corrupt establishment whore. Kevin McCarthy is a wonky candidate who can’t be trusted. And it certainly isn’t Mitt Romney…

Excerpts From "Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace" January 24, 2021.


WALLACE: We will discuss with the trial means for the Biden agenda, his call for unity, and Donald Trump's hold on the GOP with Republican Senator Mitt Romney.

WALLACE: Now, some of your Republican colleagues, including Marco Rubio, who's going to be on in the next segment, say that President Biden has already breached that call for unity with some of his actions, executive actions, legislative agenda in the opening days.

Do you see an inherent conflict between calling for unity and a new president pursuing his agenda?

WALLACE: Well, I think it would be unrealistic to assume that Democrats and Republicans are going to see eye to eye on every issue. There are going to be differences of opinion, that's expected. But at the same time, I think it's appropriate for us to have unity of purpose, unity of heart, a recognition that we respect each other and treat each other with comity and that is something which I believe President Biden wants to see.

[OCS: Differences of opinion? How about a full-on assault on the Constitution, our national sovereignty, our economy, our culture, and the American people?] 

At the same time, I think there are some actions the president is taking that are going to lead to some anger and division. I think, for instance, saying we're not going to allow further leases on the government land for oil and gas, that obviously very badly hurt some of our rural communities, stopping the Keystone pipeline, that puts a lot of people out of work. Those people are going to be understandably angry.

[OCS: Ya Think? Good-paying jobs are gone. Unable to feed your family and pay your bills?]

So I think you've got to be pretty careful even recognizing the bounds of disagreement, to not do things that incite a great deal of unnecessary anger.

[OCS: You mean, “Ignore a toxic and dangerous ideology and do the right thing for America and Americans?

As you can see, a mealy-mouthed Romney speaks in worthless platitudes and ignores the opportunity to make a forceful case for the GOP. Much like Romney’s behavior in his prior presidential campaigns, he refuses to engage in the same type of aggressive party promotion you see with Democrat candidates. Another laid-back George W. or Jeb Bush who refuses to bring the fight to the progressive socialist democrats.]


Where is the GOP now, Senator? What's -- what is the balance between the traditional Republicans and the Trump Republicans, and what do you think is the key to where your party goes over the next few years?

ROMNEY: Well, first, I'd note that there are going to be new faces that are going to be the spokespeople for our party and their own vision, and that could be Larry Hogan, it could be Charlie Baker, it could be Marco Rubio, who's going to be on in a moment, or Ben Sasse. So there will be some new faces.

[OCS: Both Larry Hogan, Governor of Massachusetts, and Charlie Baker, the Governor of Massachusetts, are feckless establishment Mitt Romney clones catering to a primarily progressive socialist democrat constituency and can often be found on the other side of the aisle. Marco Rubio, a small-minded Senator who has less fight and exposure than even a Lindsey Graham.]

President Trump, of course, will continue to have influence, but I think our party is going to return to some of our more fundamental principles, which is fiscal responsibility, believing in the importance of character, standing with our allies and pushing back against people like Kim Jong-un and Vladimir Putin.

[OCS: Former President Trump will continue to have media-driven attention, but his actual influence is still debatable after the loss of the Senate in Georgia. What are the fundamental principles of the GOP, because it certainly is not “fiscal responsibility?” As for character, that is an oxymoron when referring to any politician. The GOP’s first goal is to realize who our allies might be – certainly not allies like Pakistan and some of the countries in the Middle East who have stabbed us in the back while taking our money. Notice that Romney did not mention the two greatest threats: China and Iran.]

But I also think it's important to recognize a new strand in our party that's critical, and that is to communicate more effectively to working men and women in our country that our policies are best designed to help them and to give them and their families a better future.

That's something I think we've missed, something I missed in my campaign. I think that's something that's going to help define us going forward.

[OCS: Romney is and will continue to be an elitist. To admit he overlooked the hard-working men and women who make America function is to demonstrate just how out-of-touch Romney was then and is now.

Romney is not a Republican, not even a RINO (Republican In Name Only), he is a progressive socialist democrat in disguise, willing to represent and support the establishment status quo – go along to get along. In many ways, a Mitt Romney is more dangerous than the democrats because he attacks the GOP from within.]

Bottom line…

While the progressive socialist democrats are busy campaigning 24/7/365 and purchasing votes with their newfound presidential and congressional powers, the GOP is fighting among itself to find a leader who can return the House and Senate in 2022 and the presidency in 2024.

Unfortunately, the GOP appears as dysfunctional as before when they controlled the House, Senate, and the Presidency during the George W. Bush presidency and squandered the legislative advantage along with the taxpayer's money. Traditionally, it is better for America to have a divided government where one party controls the presidency, and the other party controls the House, Senate, or both. All acting as a system of checks and balances along with an honest, non-partisan judiciary.

We are so screwed.

P.S. Just asking, What will the progressive socialist democrats do with their violent shock troops such as Antifa and Black Lives Matter after they created the necessary chaos and unrest that ushered in the democrats to restore normalcy?
