It has taken fewer than eight months for the crumbling foundation on which President Joe Biden’s administration was built to show massive cracks, according to Lincoln Brown at P.J. Media, and it may not be much longer before prominent Democrats such as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and even Vice President Kamala Harris will be forced to admit that his presidency is dying.
In support of his contention that Biden’s troubles are poised to get considerably worse, Brown points to the precipitous decline seen in the president’s approval ratings in recent weeks, particularly amid the botched withdrawal from Afghanistan, noting that a recent Economist/YouGov poll revealed that the commander in chief’s disapproval rating has reached 50%, with a mere 39% of survey participants indicating approval of his performance in office.
Furthermore, recent days have been marked by a willingness on the part of American voters to outwardly express their hostility toward Biden and his administration, with Brown emphasizing the chilly, sometimes expletive-laden reception received during appearances in storm-ravaged New Jersey.
Adding to Biden’s poll troubles is the fact that the crisis at the southern border has been allowed to persist unabated since the moment he took office, and amid a series of other administration crises – including the debacle in Afghanistan – the issue has been all but shifted to the back burner, even as records numbers continue to pour into the country.
Compounding the problems sure to face the Biden administration in the coming days are growing concerns about the president’s cognitive fitness, with former White House physician-turned-congressman Rep. Ronny Jackson (R-TX) predicting that because “there’s something seriously going on” with the commander in chief, he will either be forced to resign or be removed via the 25th Amendment sooner rather than later.
Brown writes that given the mounting popular opposition to so many of the administration’s recent moves, one would think Democrats might take a pause to reassess some of their priorities, but he notes that no such recalibration seems to be occurring.
Indeed, Biden, together with Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) are set to push forward a plan referred to as “The American Families Tax Compliance Agenda” which would compel “all business and personal accounts from financial institutions, including bank, loan, and investment accounts to report gross inflows and outflows” to the Internal Revenue Service, a shockingly intrusive proposition certain to make voters bristle.
The president’s authoritarian decision this week to impose sweeping COVID-19 vaccine mandates with the potential to impact upwards of 100 million Americans and put their very livelihoods at risk is all but certain to trigger not only an avalanche of litigation, but a degree of resistance on the part of freedom-loving Americans the fallout from which Democrats may be wholly unprepared.
Though the likes of Pelosi, AOC, and others on the left outwardly continue to act as though they possess an electoral mandate to push the country toward the radical end of the political spectrum, a wake-up call is coming, and whether it is via the 2022 midterms or a more imminent popular reckoning, they will not be able to bury their heads in the sand about the collapse of Biden’s agenda for much longer.
