On one hand, you will say, “What, Biden’s left hook?” On the other, know this: Democrats plan to double back, drive big changes between November 9, 2022, and January 3, 2023, before the 118th Congress is sworn in. “What do you mean?” Just this.
Democrats have produced zero in legislative forward movement while owning the White House, Senate, and House. Their achievements are retro-achievements – massive errors, economically damaging, anti-democratic, and largely unpopular as well as objectively indefensible. But they are not done.
So far, they have shut down large parts of fossil fuel discovery, extraction, production, refinement, and transport. They have imposed massive costs on average people, with unnecessary spending, spiking prices, $3 trillion in waste and new government mandates, all driving inflation to levels not seen in 40 years.
More, they have produced international disgrace after disgrace, undermining US credibility globally, encouraging “small incursions” and missteps that produced massive losses, from Afghanistan and Ukraine to creating ambiguity among allies in Europe, Far East, and Middle East, Taiwan, and Australia to Saudi Arabia and Israel.
They have pushed police defunding, gun restrictions, penalizing and intimidating parents who speak up for their children, placing an anti-science, anti-religion agenda above basic understandings about public education, science, math, and constitutional law.
Meantime, they have failed to address issues like drug abuse, drug trafficking, open borders, illegal immigration, while using underhanded means, falsehoods, and permissive, violent riots to promote everything from racist tensions and delegitimizing police (who now face record ambushes, shootings, and suicides, record low recruitment, retention, and morale) to constant hyperbole on “insurrection.”
Perhaps most damaging, they have attacked the “separation of powers” doctrine, avoiding accountability – no serious investigation or prosecution – for irregularities in the Clinton Campaign, Biden family transactions with China, falsehoods undermining the other party from 2016 to 2020.
Now, they are quietly pulling back on past statements – first, savaging the current Supreme Court, then suddenly pulling back on vows to “pack the court” if they get a chance, that is, turn it political by adding Democrats above the nine current members, a number steady for 150 years.
They are coyly backing away from their “we will pack the court” and “we will make you pay” statements, their past police defunding, drug legalization, end of parole, federalizing all elections, socializing the energy sector, taking over state and local education, ending fossil fuels overnight, raising taxes on the middle class, mass electric car production, massive new spending, and regulation.
Do you smell a rat? Having lived through political cycles back to Richard Nixon’s first race – with some awareness of the old dirty tricks, sudden roar-backs, October surprises, and now the “new Democrat party,” which seems to believe leftist ends justify all means…one must wonder: Are these sudden midterm or deathbed confessions of conversion real, or is this just one more feint?
What is the real plan, the real game, and about what should all Americans be worried? In short, if Democrats can convince the country that they did not mean to do all they did, and that they have no ill intentions for those last “we are in charge” seven weeks – November 9 to January 3 – they may get people to vote for them, squeak out races in 2022 that they should not win.
What then? Expect a hurricane of legislation, to be signed by Biden before two years of Republican Congress. Expect a full-on attempt to “gild the lily” by packing the Supreme Court with more “rank partisan” justices, sudden codification of Roe v. Wade (throwing out the Court’s Dobbs decision), federalizing all state elections, pushing gun bans and confiscation, effectively taking the “woke” agenda and making it federal law.
You may doubt me, may scoff at this idea, may look at the mandate likely to come out of November 8 and imagine that Biden and congressional Democrats will be demur, never dispose of the filibuster, never try to highjack the electoral process, never revert to “third world” public corruption, not throw a “left hook” in the last round. But mark my words, many are thinking about it now – and America should.
