in 48 hours we change direction
Exactly 48 hours from the publication of this blog we will inaugurate a new President and Vice President. We will do it with much drama from the supporting media. It will also be uneventful as to the violence and unrest we have been told will occur.
When the swearing in is done and the new administration takes control, what can we expect? Here’s what you need to know in a nutshell:
– For 8 years the Obama administration blamed everything that was wrong and went wrong on the Bush presidency.
– For the past 4 years the Obama/Biden people have said everything that was right about the economy was their planning and doing.
So isn’t it clear that the next 4 they will claim all that is wrong on the Trump era and all that goes well because of their policies?
And with media support they will convince many that is true.
what we expect
We fully expect the Biden team to hit the ground with actions to support the change they want to bring to Trump policies. By weeks end we suspect President Biden:
Will end restriction on immigration from some Muslim-majority countries.
Propose a comprehensive immigration reform bill.
Move to rejoin the Paris climate accords.
Mandate mask-wearing on federal property and during interstate travel.
Make clear the $1.9 trillion virus relief bill he outlined last week.
Take actions on Covid 19.
He will announce expanded testing and vaccine plans.
Extend pandemic related limits on evictions and student loan payments.
He will likely sign orders aimed at reopening schools and businesses.
He will propose plans to provide economic relief to those impacted by the virus.
Other actions to follow quickly:
Plans to impact criminal justice reform.
Climate change proposals and pipeline restrictions.
A show and plan to correct Trump’s “family separation” and reunite them.
In foreign policy there will be a clear message that America is returning to what it was. An outreach to Iran and maybe a return to the agreement that was negotiated in the Obama/Biden era.
In essence, President Trump really thrashed the Obama legacy, and President Biden will be thrashing the Trump one and go back. As they both said, “elections have consequences.”
How you see those consequences depends on how you voted.
After all you get what you vote for.
some other news and consequences
VP Elect Harris is resigning from the senate today as she prepares to be sworn in on Wednesday. Her replacement is ready to be sworn in.
Senator Joe Manchin of W.Va. has been all over the airwaves.
He is being presented as a”conservative Democrat from one of the most Republican states in the nation.” The man in the middle!
In the interviews he is doing his normal tightrope walk and trying to impress.
Well Senator, your day is coming. The scam is over.
You see, he has never been the “one” to change anything. He wants his state voters to think he is non partisan because he votes against his party so often. But, never when it mattered. It is about to matter.
Example: The Kavanaugh hearing. He was non committal, non committal and non committal when there were 49 votes. Ten minutes after Seantor Collins was for Kavanaugh, Joe Manchin was too. Political coverage?
Senator, the day is coming.
The NYT has a headline story today, “What Went Wrong” with Covid to cost so many lives. They have many criticisms of the administration in it. You know what they missed? China. China is to blame for this and the havoc it has caused on the world. They could have stopped it before it spread.
Let’s see their coverage over the next few months, though no doubt any roll out issues will be Trump’s fault and not Cuomo in their home state.
let’s be fair
We have been clear that the President’s demeanor destroyed his presidency. It wasn’t his policies, it was his tweeting and words.
With that said, how does Adam Schiff keep getting away with his stuff?
Yesterday he said President Trump should not be given access to intelligence briefings. His reasoning, the President cannot be trusted.
Well, if anyone in Washington has told more stories and mislead more than Adam Schiff, let me know who it is. The man who saw evidence for four years that didn’t exist and led an impeachment hoax.
If only the press was fair.
And by the way, this was released at the same time Schiff was spouting off for the four years about Trump and Russian Collusion.
The top Justice Department official in early 2017 overseeing the FBI’s Russia probe testified he was briefed as many as six times and was told there was no evidence of Trump campaign collusion, a newly released transcript shows.
Dana J. Boente’s position in the new Trump administration was this: Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself from the Russia probe and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein would not win Senate confirmation until late April. That left Mr. Boente as acting deputy overseeing the Crossfire Hurricane probe in February, March and April.
“I recall being told at some point, maybe not February, between February and April … that there was no evidence of collusion with the Trump campaign,” Mr. Boente said June 22 in closed testimony newly released by Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham, South Carolina Republican.
