Biden Turns Back The Clock To Obama Administration

It's deja vu all over again.

If you’re of a certain age you can remember that season opener of “Dallas” when Bobby Ewing woke up to discover the previous season had only been a dream. Well, that’s what the Biden administration is trying to do per the Trump administration. Michael Goodwin of The New York Post relays how that’s being done.

Goodwin: “As winners never fail to remind losers, elections have consequences. But rarely is there a  single day where consequences pack as much wallop as Friday, where the irrationality of Joe Biden’s policies came into full view. From the border with Mexico, where the new administration started opening the doors to at least 25,000 migrants seeking asylum, to the Mideast tinderbox, where it moved to rejoin the misbegotten Iran nuke deal, the new president appears fixated by the desire to turn back the clock to 2016. It’s as if Biden has been seized by a sentimental longing to try to make the world like it was when the Obama-Biden administration left office. Unfortunately, ‘The Way We Were’ is a nice song but not much of a guide to the future. The Obama-Biden policy had been to admit the asylum applicants and turn them loose pending hearings. Naturally, many never showed up because they knew they could not qualify as refugees from persecution. But their ability to stay here illegally served as an incentive for others to follow. Instead of building on the program that reduced mass migrations, Biden returned to the broken system Trump had fixed. Biden also pledges not to build another foot of border wall and pause nearly all deportations for 100 days. In what world does any of that make sense, especially in a pandemic?”

It makes sense if you’re trying to flood the American southwest with Democrat votes and flip Texas blue.

“Something similar happened at the G-7 Security Conference Friday, where Biden abandoned Trump’s America First policy and embraced the ‘Kumbaya’ notion that everybody is better off when we outsource our interests to globalist institutions. ‘America is back, the transatlantic alliance is back, and we are not looking backward,” Biden said. He declared that the partnership with Europe is “the cornerstone of all we hope to accomplish in the 21st century.’ In truth, America’s major fight with Europe, especially Germany, was over the failure of NATO members to meet their agreed-upon commitment to spend at least 2% of their GDP for defense. For years, American presidents, including Barack Obama, had made the same complaint and were ignored.” You could almost hear the suppressed sardonic laughter from across the pond. The American gravy train is back and the Euros can go back to ignoring their NATO commitments.

Do you believe Dr. Fauci when he says another COVID surge is on the way?

“His plan to rejoin the Iran nuke deal that Trump scuttled is perhaps the looniest idea of all because of the shock waves it sends around the Middle East. The deal didn’t even address, let alone stop, Iran’s military aggression and terror proxies, which the Obama-Biden administration admitted. It also conceded that some of the billions Washington included ended up financing terror. Recall also that the lack of faith in the deal led Saudi Arabia and others to talk of getting their own nukes. Just recently, more evidence confirmed that Iran had a nuclear-weapons program despite its constant denial.” Yup, this season of Dallas is really awful.
