Don't Do Anything Stupid, Rulers
It looks like...
Last week President Biden blamed Putin and Republicans for inflation.
President Biden on Tuesday blamed Russia’s war in Ukraine, corporate greed, the pandemic and the policies of “ultra-MAGA Republicans” for causing record-high inflation...
“It’s not because of spending,” Mr. Biden said when asked whether he is to blame for inflation. “I think our policies help, not hurt.”
OK. So how do you tell when a politician is lying? The answer is because his mouth is moving.
Plus, my little maxim: Why do politicians lie? Because we the voters insist upon it.
Now, I don't know if President Biden really thinks all those stupid things he is saying in his speeches. He is lying because if he didn't then the only thing to do would be to resign.
By the way, how are you Fact Checkers doing these days? Somehow I haven't heard much from you lately.
What I am starting to worry about is that, with everything going wrong, the Biden administration will do something stupid.
It looks like the Ukrainians are losing the war in the Donbas. Which means that Biden and the Europeans could do something stupid, so they don't look bad, and start World War III.
It looks like the stock market and the economy are totally screwed, with inflation and recession occuring at the same time, even as the Fed is determined to raise interest rates. Which means that Biden might do something stupid so that he looks like he is "doing something."
It looks like we are having a meltdown on the crypto front, with Bitcoin down from $68,000 to $22,000, and I read that "One of the biggest lenders within the crypto market, Celsius Network, is struggling as the booming sector turns sour." Hey, Chairman Powell of the Fed, and all the Euro ships at sea. You do know that you guys are the "lenders of last resort," right?
It looks like the Democrats are going to get wiped out at the midterms in November. So what are they doing? Running J6 show trials and threatening to indict President Trump. That would really solve all our problems, right?
It looks like there is a bit of a cock-up on the China front, with:
The run on regional Chinese banks, plus people losing their down payments from Evergrande
The CCP "order a few weeks back for top party officials to keep all their money in China." But what about nephews and nieces?
Suppose China had a real economic crisis, and invaded Taiwan to distract attention. Could the Biden administration avoid doing something stupid?
It looks like "minorities and women hardest hit" in the baby formula crisis. Imagine if Biden & Co. decided to nationalize baby formula to solve the crisis.
But really, what could go wrong?
