In the end, all those 4D chess moves came to naught. Trump is out of office, nobody’s been arrested, and Joe Biden is President. There are still those saying he has something up his sleeve but he has no authority now. He can’t release anything. I didn’t see anything in the documents he declassified that was earth shattering, he really shouldn’t have left it to the last day. Anything still in the process can now be blocked.
Now Trump is talking about setting up his own political party. Maybe he will, but I think he’ll only succeed in splitting the Conservative vote if he does that. In his place, I’d now be thinking of spending my twilight years – and my money – somewhere warm and comfortable.
So, are the Democrats happy? I really don’t think they are capable of happiness. They now want to prosecute Trump and set up a secret police force to hunt down Trump supporters. They won. If there’s anything worse than a sore loser, it’s a sore winner.
Biden’s first day in office has been spent undoing much of what Trump did. Not because Trump was wrong (well not in every case, sometimes he was) but purely because Trump did it. This kind of hate is why so many died of Covid over there. Hydroxychloroquine works. We’ve always known it works. Trump said he’s heard good things about it and bam – it’s banned everywhere. Because Trump said it’s a good idea. No other reason. Now it’s coming back, but too late for an awful lot of people.
On this first day, the Biden administration changed the Ambassador to Israel to hte Ambassador to Israel, Gaza and the West Bank. It soon changed back, presumably someone pointed out that these areas are controlled by Hamas, not Israel, and if they are going to have an ambassador it really should be a different one.
The White House website now asks for your pronouns. Biden has appointed a health boss who took her own mother out of a nursing home before sending all the Covid patients in there. He has appointed an education boss who believes all white teachers need racism re-education. All this, and more, on day one.
Perhaps America needed this sample of what the current Democrat party is really like. It’s not like in JFK’s days. This is only the begining – Joe Biden is just the warm-up act.
When Kamala Harris takes over, then the fun begins in earnest. It’s going to be an interesting four (at least) years.
I’ve never visited America. I don’t think I’ll rush to visit just yet.
