Folks, it’s not all Joe Biden’s fault that our nation is in bother.
His utterly inept cabinet can also be to blame.
Let’s begin with Janet Yellen.
Yellen, the primary feminine treasury secretary, gave the impression to be essentially the most seasoned, the perfect credentialed and least political of all Biden’s cupboard appointees. Not so.
The treasury secretary not too long ago confessed that she blew it on inflation. She didn’t apologize or admit its actual trigger, however not less than she admitted she goofed.
She stated, “I think I was wrong then about the path inflation would take … there have been unanticipated and large shocks to the economy … that I didn’t at the time fully understand.”
Yellen’s pitch is, basically, that inflation blew in due to fully unpredictable occasions that nobody might have anticipated. Untrue. Most economists agree that the Democrats’ $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan spilled an excessive amount of cash into the recovering financial system on the identical time that we had items shortages, sparking rising costs.
In reality, a brand new e-book out says Yellen agreed with Larry Summers, who warned that Biden’s spending spree would have simply that impact, and argued for a smaller American Rescue Plan. Though she denies that account, it rings true. In different phrases, she knew higher. Far from being the mental anchor of this administration, Yellen seems to be yet one more shill for Democrats’ left-wing insurance policies.
Next up: Homeland Security Chief Alejandro Mayorkas, the primary Latino in that position, who has permitted the worst-ever assault on our southern border, did not ship a plan to confront the disaster and who lied to congress when he claimed our “border is secure.”
On Mayorkas’ watch, 1.2 million individuals have been apprehended attempting to enter the U.S. illegally prior to now seven months, of which almost half one million have been from nations aside from Mexico or the northern triangle of Ecuador, Guatemala and El Salvador. The overwhelming majority of these persons are single adults – not households fleeing poverty, and the overall contains 40 males on the phobia watch listing.
Under Mayorkas, deaths as a result of drug overdoses topped 100,000 for the primary time ever, the overwhelming majority (71,000) from fentanyl, imported from China and Mexico throughout our southern border.
Mayorkas whined to a censorious Congress final yr that he labored “18 hours a day.” When Republicans take again management of the House this fall, they need to impeach him and let him compensate for his magnificence sleep.
Next up: Pete Buttigieg, the primary homosexual Secretary of Transportation, who has been Biden’s invisible level man accountable for smoothing our provide chains. As his reward for disappearing throughout our clogged-ports disaster (he took a months-long parental go away final summer season after adopting twins along with his husband), he’s now answerable for $660 billion of the White House’s infrastructure program, which he can dispense across the nation in politically useful methods.
A latest interview with New York Magazine opens with Pete scoffing: “I don’t think it’s an accident that the last time fascism was fashionable in certain corners of this country’s political class, one of the things they said for Mussolini is he made the trains run on time — it was a transportation example…”
So, effectivity is a step in direction of fascism? Good information for Buttigieg: he has but to take that first step.
As to what he has achieved, even a fawning reporter who describes Buttigieg as “on everyone’s shortlist of possible presidential contenders” appears to battle. Pete defends the White House’s efficiency saying, “we’re doing a lot.”
Then there’s Jennifer Granholm, second lady to function power secretary, whose credentials for the job look like that she has swallowed Biden’s local weather agenda hook, line and sinker, and particularly his affection for electrical autos. It actually wasn’t her deep understanding of U.S. power markets.
Early on, as she introduced a deliberate withdrawal of oil from our Strategic Energy Reserve, a reporter requested the apparent query: how a lot oil does the U.S. devour? Astonishingly, she had no concept.
She additionally apparently is aware of nothing about U.S. oil manufacturing or how world power markets work. Last fall, shifting the blame for rising oil costs, she claimed that “OPEC controls more than 50 percent of the petroleum supply.” That was not true then, or now. The EIA, which Granholm oversees, stories that OPEC equipped on the time lower than 35 p.c of worldwide oil output. Moreover, the U.S. is the world’s greatest producer of oil.
Granholm’s official bio web page echoes the Left’s declare that “There is not any higher problem dealing with our nation and our planet than the climate crisis,” whilst Russian President Vladimir Putin obliterates a European nation, China threatens its neighbors and Covid-19 kills hundreds of thousands.
Granholm’s grandiose inexperienced plans have been likely a success within the school lounge at University of California, Berkeley, the place she taught; that’s the place they, and he or she, belong.
We should not neglect Attorney General Merrick Garland, who thinks that oldsters protesting the woke indoctrination of their youngsters represent a home terror menace
Or our first black Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin, who deserves particular point out for his oversight of one of the catastrophic navy occasions in our nation’s historical past – the horrifically mismanaged pull-out from Afghanistan. That chaotic occasion resulted within the deaths of 13 U.S. servicemembers and scores of Afghans and left our enemies with $7 billion in warfare materiel.
And we are able to’t resist calling out Deb Haaland, first Native American inside secretary and one other local weather zealot, who must be acknowledged for having blocked new oil and fuel leasing within the midst of an power disaster … even in defiance of a choose’s order. Quite merely, she is making issues worse.
Space doesn’t allow acknowledging all of Biden’s C-team. We conclude by noting that on the White House web site it says: “President Biden’s Cabinet reflects his pledge to appoint leaders of government agencies that reflect the country they aim to serve.”
Sorry, however I believe our nation is best than that.
