Joe Biden is all malarkey all the time


It feels like yesterday when Joe Biden promised there would be “No Malarkey” in his White House. To emphasize this point, he had the words painted in giant letters on a bus he used in 2019.

Whichever way you translate malarkey — “bulls-t” is the better option — it’s clear that Biden broke his promise there wouldn’t be. In fact, spreading malarkey here, there and everywhere is the hallmark of his presidency, which is why his party is in a panic.

Of course, Biden was a master of malarkey long before the election. He claimed in 2019 that he never told his son Hunter about Hunter’s foreign business entanglements. And during a 2020 debate, he insisted, “My son didn’t make money talking about China.”

BS doesn’t get any thicker than these two lies. Imagine the trick he’ll try when finally asked if he’s the “big guy” in line for a secret 10% cut from a deal with the Chinese Communists.

The past 16 months have provided countless examples that Biden is All Malarkey, All the Time, but the past week has been particularly piquant. On topics ranging from inflation on the southern border, masked mandates and the war in Ukraine, the president was completely unable to give a direct and honest answer.

When it comes to exorbitant prices hitting families, Biden has not accepted responsibility or promised meaningful action. Instead, he shifted the game from blame to overdrive.

Buck doesn’t stop there

“Let’s be absolutely clear on why prices are high right now: COVID and Vladimir Putin,” he said in a tweet on Wednesday. Soon another followed, saying, “I’m doing everything I can to bring prices down and fight Putin’s price hike.”

For weeks, “Putin’s price hike” has been the White House’s go-to response to levels of inflation not seen in four decades. It’s an odd choice, because trying to pin the blame on a foreign leader contradicts the fundamental thing that Americans demand of their president. As the famous sign on Harry Truman’s Oval Office said, “The buck stops here.”

But when Biden says the blame lies with Putin, he says he can’t do anything about inflation and has given up trying. Weakness isn’t usually seen as a virtue by voters, and this time is no exception.

A poll in late March found 64% of voters blamed Biden’s policies for most of the inflation, while just 8% said his policies reduced it.

So in terms of stopping inflation and evading blame, Biden’s balony is a double loser.

Last week brought another malarkey moment, actually two of them, involving the federal judge’s ruling that overturned the mask mandate on the airlines. Biden initially suggested he agreed with the decision, saying “it’s up to them” when asked if travelers should wear masks.

But the next day, his administration said it would appeal the decision. Then, when asked by a reporter about the separate issue of Title 42 at the border, which allows the federal government to deport migrants from countries with communicable diseases, Biden started talking about the mask mandate. Eh?

He later released a statement trying to clear up the confusion he created but still didn’t answer the question about the border apocalypse he plans to unleash next month. Even fellow Democrats are urging him to reconsider, a belated recognition of the importance of his medium-term open border policies.

It’s no coincidence it’s outright malarkey to say there’s no COVID health crisis at the border while simultaneously saying the crisis is so bad that passengers need to keep carrying masks on airplanes. Both cannot be true.

For his final appearance over Ukraine, the President brought an industrial-grade manure spreader. Amid polls showing most voters think he has been too slow to help, he tried to sound optimistic by announcing that America was sending more military equipment to fend off Putin.

Always play catch-up

Clearly seeking a rallying reaction around the flag, he repeatedly stated that the United States is leading the NATO effort and that “every American taxpayer, every member of our armed forces can be proud of the fact that the generosity of our country and the skill and service of our military helped to arm and repel Russian aggression in Ukraine.

Except that he hasn’t really repelled the aggression of Russia, which continues to reduce Ukrainian cities to rubble and massacre civilians, and that goes to the heart of the criticisms of Slow Joe. Two months after the invasion, which followed months of Russian troops gathering on the border, Biden is still playing catch-up.

He calls his latest aid package accelerated, but if this is accelerated, what would a pokey look like?

More importantly, Biden’s complacent statement lacked any commitment to Ukrainian victory. Giving our ally just enough aid to keep the war going is costing Ukraine dearly without helping them achieve real victory.

Indeed, Biden revealed his lack of determination when he said that Putin “will never succeed in dominating and occupying all of Ukraine”, an echo of his earlier slip that a “minor incursion” may not bring any benefits. western response.

He also bravado insisted that Putin is counting on a split from NATO and the European Union “and we are going to prove him wrong”.

Yet even as the president spoke, reports surfaced that proved Putin right and Biden wrong.

Germany, having earlier sent military equipment, now refused to send tanks and heavy artillery that Ukraine desperately needed.

At the same time as he held back his arms, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz slowed down a European plan to boycott Russian oil, infuriating Ukraine and no doubt pleasing Putin.

So this Biden claim of unbreakable Western unity? It was just another great tale from The Man from Malarkey.
