The Justices have broken Biden’s pen 

leave a comment »

 (My new American Thinker post)

Back in 1961, a couple of Babe Ruth’s records went down. 

It led Whitey Ford to say that “….It’s been a bad year for the Babe.” Maybe Whitey, known as The Chairman of the Board, would say that it’s been a bad year for # 46!

President Biden took off a year ago signing a bunch of executive orders. A year later, the courts have finally broken his pen. This is from news reports

The Supreme Court blocked President Biden’s push to force employers across the country with over 100 employees to vaccinate their workers in a 6-3 ruling that dealt a sizable blow to the administration’s vaccination push. 

This is a huge victory for the Constitution and a rebuke of governing with the pen.

From mayors to governors to school districts to President Biden, we’ve seen a rash of mandates in the name of public health. President Biden’s mandate against private employers was authoritarian and not how we do business in the U.S. The mandate claimed authority that President Biden does not have. More importantly, the Congress never gave OSHA that power, either. 

Cheers for the 6 Justices who understand the Constitution. Thumbs down for the 3 other Justices who can’t think outside of the liberal box.

When do we change from Pinocchios to Bidens? 

leave a comment »

(My new American Thinker post)

We’ve grown accustomed to Glenn Kessler’s Pinocchios — those articles that check the accuracy of a statement.  Kessler is back with another “fact check” and President Biden’s nose keeps getting bigger:   

“I did not walk in the shoes of generations of students who walked these grounds. But I walked other grounds. Because I’m so damn old, I was there as well. You think I’m kidding, man. It seems like yesterday the first time I got arrested.”  (President Biden, in remarks in Atlanta on voting rights, Jan. 11)

It was just a throwaway line, made to laughter, [sic] in an important presidential speech. But here’s the president, saying he once had been arrested, during a section that recalled some of the heroes of the civil rights movement. He even suggested he had been arrested more than once, as he recalled it was the “first time” he had been arrested.

It’s certainly not the first time he’s said he’s been arrested. Previously, he has said he was arrested trying to see Nelson Mandela in South Africa (Four Pinocchios false) and for trying to enter an all-female dorm room at Ohio University (Partly False, according to USA Today). He has also suggested he was arrested for wandering onto the Senate floor as a “star-struck kid,” but most times he has indicated he was just given a warning.

Under normal circumstances, this quote from a presidential speech would make people laugh at another old man making fun of his age.  Unfortunately, President Biden has a habit of doing this when he goes off script.   He makes up stories to impress the audience and then he gets a Pinocchio from the media.

Once upon a time, no one cared about a senator from Delaware doing this.   Most of us reacted by saying that it was up to the people of Delaware to deal with their senator.   He was forced to drop his 1988 campaign over plagiarism.   His other presidential campaigns never got very far.

It’s different because he is now the President.   His words are heard by more people and therefore monitored with more frequency.

Maybe Kessler should change the rating from Pinocchios to Bidens.   It sure looks like President Biden’s imagination goes beyond Geppetto’s beloved puppet’s lies.   I don’t recall Pinocchio ever saying that he was arrested in a civil rights march.

Jerome puts the bullet to any future stimulus 

leave a comment »

 (My new American Thinker post)

For about a month, we’ve heard that maverick Democrat Sen. Joe Manchin killed Build Back Better, or BBB, the big spending program promoted by President Biden and Democrats. 

In reality, it was Chairman Jerome Powell of the Federal Reserve who killed it. Let’s see the story

To get back to normal, the U.S. must first figure out a way to deal with rising inflation, which is expected to top 7% in December, CNBC reported. To battle inflation, the Fed plans to scale back its asset purchases and raise interest rates.

“As we move through this year… if things develop as expected, we’ll be normalizing policy, meaning we’re going to end our asset purchases in March, meaning we’ll be raising rates over the course of the year,” Powell said. “At some point perhaps later this year we will start to allow the balance sheet to run off, and that’s just the road to normalizing policy.”

In short, no more stimulus! No more checks to people. Inflation is topic #1!

Some of us saw this movie in 1981-83. Who remembers Paul Volcker, the Fed Chairman at the time? 

In order to defeat inflation, he pushed interest rates to 20% and we got a major downturn, which some called the biggest since the Great Depression. 

Do you remember 11% unemployment in 1981-83? It killed President Reagan in the 1982 midterms but did set the table for the economic recovery of late 1983 and 1984.

As I recall, 1982 was a terrible year all over the world. It got so bad that Paul McCartney put the currency crisis to music with “The pound is sinking“: 

“The pound is sinking, the peso’s falling The lira’s reeling and feeling quite appalling”

Yes, it did feel quite appalling that year of 1982. I don’t know how bad it will get, but Mr. Powell has to hit the brakes as Mr. Volcker did back then. “Inflation is always and everywhere a monetary phenomenon,” as Milton Friedman put it back in 1963. Joe Biden is the only guy out there still arguing with it.
