At this point, the only thing we know for certain is that it damned sure ain’t Pedo Joe.
Perhaps we should be thankful. Considering inflation, energy shortages and a world teetering on the brink, maybe the less Biden is involved, the better.
All of which were brought on by the Biden marionette’s handlers. Which means that statement applies equally to them, too.
To understand what’s happening, it’s best not to think of this as a Biden Presidency, but a Biden Regency.
The term was regularly used in the age of kings and empires. If an 8-year-old princess was placed on the throne or an incapable king couldn’t perform his duties, one or several regents would handle the day-to-day operations.
In like manner, Biden is surrounded with longtime D.C. power players, such as Ron Klain, Susan Rice, Anita Dunn, John Podesta, Gene Sperling – a veritable “who’s who” of Beltway knife fights and insider skullduggery. Throughout their long careers, they’ve never sought credit or voter approval. Just power.
And the less Joe is around, the more their regency can accomplish.
Which ain’t a good thing, for anybody.
These competing power centers explain the contradictory policies coming out of the Oval Office these days. Aggressively pushing a new Iran Nuclear Deal while Russia buys Iranian drones to fight Ukrainians. When there’s no one to say “the buck stops here,” the bucks turn up in pretty strange places.
It reminds me of the confusing end of Woodrow Wilson’s presidency. For his last 18 months in office, he was incapacitated with a stroke. First lady Edith Wilson and a handful of confidantes covered it up and ran the country themselves.
As with Wilson, historians will one day explain the Biden Regency more fully. But someone is running the country, and not very well.
How sure can we be of even that much, really? The Leviathan-state has become so massive, so ubiquitous, so many-fingered and multi-tentacled, that it begins to look more and more as if the infernal machine is essentially running on autopilot, an overcrowded clown car with a brick on the accelerator pedal coasting down into the ditch under its own power with nobody at the wheel. That could also account for those contradictory, nonsensical, and self-defeating policies easily enough, about as well as anything else does. But no, it definitely ain’t Grampy Gropey steering this thing; for one thing, he’s too old, senile, and decrepit to drive. Compare, contrast.
Biden cant bring a fricken bicycle to a stop and Trump is out there catching sharpies out of mid air. https://t.co/BYeyLccoGy

Heh. Nice snag, Mr President.
