President Joe Biden persuaded voters that he would build a unified America with middle-of-the-road policies and officials that could reach across the aisle. His first 100 days look more like an Antifa remake of the movie Titanic. It’s taking on water as radical nominees come under fire, and Biden is putting children back in cages at the U.S. Southern border.
New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) raised her national profile by brokering a Green New Deal policy platform with Biden. She’s quickly discovering that the conservative news criticisms that she lacks the intelligence to serve in Congress may be true. Biden has already backtracked on many of his promises. But she stands humiliated by the fact the White House has re-opened the so-called “cages” to house unaccompanied minors crossing the border.
“This is not okay, never has been okay, never will be okay — no matter the administration or party,” AOC tweeted.
That ranks among AOC’s weakest responses since becoming a Congresswoman. Of course, now she has to deal with the reality that Obama and Biden built those cages for precisely this purpose. As the far left grow disenchanted about Biden’s policies, the radicals he tapped for office flounder in Senate confirmation hearings.
“Neera Tanden is a leading policy expert who brings critical qualifications to the table during this time of unprecedented crisis,” White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki tweeted.
The Biden nominee of the Office of Management and Budget already lost support from key Democrats such as West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin. She brings a history of open hatred toward conservative leaders and brandishes rare divisiveness, even for Washington, D.C. To her credit, she’s launched tweet-storms that rival former President Donald Trump’s. She’s called Maine Senator Susan Collins “criminally ignorant” and tweeted that “a vampire has more heart than Ted Cruz,” among others. Her nomination appears doomed.
During the campaign, Biden made sweeping immigration promises — aside from not putting children in those cages — that the borders would be open for 100 days. A flood of migrants continues to overwhelm U.S. Customs and Border Patrol, and new caravans are expected to arrive. That’s why Texas A.G. Ken Paxton brought the Democrat to court.
“The Court’s decision to stop the Biden administration from casting aside congressionally enacted immigration laws is a much-needed remedy for DHS’s unlawful action,” A.G. Paxton stated. “A near-complete suspension of deportations would only serve to endanger Texans and undermine federal law.”
U.S. District Court Judge Drew Tipton agreed that Biden had no authority to strike down federal law with a presidential pen. Biden’s executive order to end deportations was swiftly rejected, and an indefinite ban was leveled against the White House to make any policy changes to deportations. So thorough was Biden’s courtroom defeat that he is now required to give Texas 180 notice of any proposed changes to immigration enforcement whatsoever.
The fake news media continues to sidestep coverage of the mounting losses and discontent among the ranks of Democrats. But make no mistake about it, Biden doesn’t know how to win.
