The Four Horsemen of the Biden-Harris Ticket Apocalypse

To date, the Trump-Pence reelection campaign has focused on exposing former Vice President Joe Biden’s five decades of self-dealing and dereliction of his duty to the American people. Among the lowlights, Biden has enriched his family at the expense of America’s prosperity and security. Biden was complicit in weaponizing the police, surveillance, intelligence, and taxing powers of the federal government against the Obama Administration’s political opponents. Biden’s refusal to denounce BLM and Antifa rioters and his choice, instead, to downplay the violence is the height of irresponsibility and cowardice. 

Yet even at this late date during the 2020 presidential election, the Trump-Pence ticket can and should add four more glaring faults to the mix—let’s call them the four horsemen of the Biden-Harris apocalypse—that will resonate with Americans, notably with suburban voters. 

Biden will cut taxes for the rich and raise your taxes to pay for it.

By vowing to repeal the Trump tax reform and relief law, Biden not only will raise taxes on working families; he will also cut taxes for rich blue state residents who under that legislation lost their state and local tax (SALT) deduction. The SALT deduction constitutes the rest of America’s taxpayers subsidizing the high taxes in blue states. Little wonder Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) has said reinstating this tax cut for his rich residents—and donors—is a key priority should the Democrats regain the Senate. 

Biden should not be allowed to “build back better” by bailing out blue-state billionaires at your expense. Further, though vowing also to raise taxes on those making over $400,000, Biden has yet to announce by how much. In the end, there is a very good chance—indeed, a near certainty—his blue-state buddies will net out a gain.

Biden Refuses to rebuke the Democratic governors who killed tens of thousands of senior citizens.

The same Joe Biden who opposed stopping Chinese residents from entering the United States and spreading COVID-19 when President Trump issued his travel ban in the early stages of the pandemic, now claims he wants to make America safe from the virus and protect the “vulnerable” among us. Yet Biden has refused to denounce the Democratic governors, such as New York’s Andrew Cuomo, Michigan’s Gretchen Whitmer, and Pennsylvania’s Tom Wolf who ordered the return of COVID-19 positive residents into the (then) healthy senior citizen populations of long-term care facilities. 

Worse, when the science showed their policies were killing people in the tens of thousands, they lied—and the cover up continues today (much as it does for Obamagate). Biden’s silence is an affront to the families of those killed by these Democrats’ criminal incompetence and inhuman callousness. In fact, the difference between President Trump’s real-time response and Biden’s plagiarized plan is that Sleepy Joe’s is a day late and a dollar short. In his deliberate ignorance and silence, by omission it is Biden who is lying about the virus. (And, by the way, can someone point out that the over 200,000 Americans whose deaths have been attributed to COVID-19 did not all die from COVID-19 simply because they died while positive for the virus? Those making this claim are, for their own selfish gain, playing politics with the pandemic and setting back the progress of research, including the race for a vaccine. So much for the “science is real” crowd.)

Biden supported bribing Iran while they were putting bounties on and directing the killing of Americans.

Biden was vice president during an administration that sent planeloads of money and removed billions of dollars in sanctions from the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism—Iran—even as that nation implemented its “death to America” agenda by funding and directing the killing of American military and civilian personnel in Iraq. How anyone—especially former military brass, so-called “national security experts,” and diplomats—can support Biden, who supported this criminal malfeasance, is beyond understanding except to say that it is despicable. Of course, these are the same soulless skunks who carped when the president justly eliminated the terrorist General Qasem Soleimani, the Iranian regime’s orchestrator of these killings of Americans.

Biden-Harris will raise the cost of living and lower the standard of living for every American family.

And, just so his running mate Senator Kamala Harris doesn’t feel slighted, the Trump-Pence campaign should consider noting that her contribution, the Democratic ticket’s “lethargy policy”—including the green new deal, etc.—will not just destroy jobs in America’s energy sector; it will raise the cost and lower the standard of living for every American. One of the greatest boons of the Trump economy remains America’s energy self-sufficiency and the prosperity this brings to American families. 

Should Biden-Harris be elected, and the cost of energy then skyrockets, that will mean less money for Americans to put food on the table, pay for college and health care, and all the other rising costs that will occur due to the Democrats’ radical agenda. For the sake of hard working Americans, the “Californication of America” must be stopped.

This review of the facts surrounding Vice-President Biden’s and Senator Kamala Harris’ past and present policy positions is drawn completely from the public record and is demonstrably true. And, unlike the Democrats’ tendentious, vacuous campaign, the four horsemen of the apocalypse they intend to visit upon voters are completely transparent once seen. The public needs the opportunity to consider them.
