Biden’s Collapse Exposes Rot in the Establishment

A revolt is underway in King Biden’s court. The facade of the Capable Unifier has come undone. As if by magic, a moratorium on noticing Old Joe’s feeble condition has been lifted, and the ruthless machine that pushed the freakish spectacle of his presidency on the country is feigning surprise to find that the Oval Office is occupied by a dementia patient. 

Joe Biden has yet to face a midterm referendum, but he is already one of the most unpopular presidents in U.S. history. His own party is abandoning him. A recent New York Times poll found that more than 60 percent of Democrats want Biden to bow out in 2024. Across the board, Biden approval ratings are floating in the 30s. 

This day was always going to come, sooner or later. Democrats used every dirty trick in the book to push Biden past the finish line and remove the Bad Orange Man from power, but they never had a plan for what would come after the election. Everything about Biden’s campaign was a cynical sham. 

To the undeceived, the signs of Biden’s incapacity were obvious even then. Biden spent much of the campaign sequestered at home. An irresponsible, overtly political media campaigned on his behalf. They refused to cover his mental decline, covered up his family’s treacherous, salacious dealings with China, the evidence of which is now undeniable, and portrayed Biden as a saint, the John Paul II of “democracy.” 

Of course, this was all a load of poppycock. Americans are well-acquainted now with the real Biden. He is a nasty, corrupt, tired old man. 

But the establishment rallied behind Biden for lack of alternatives, and this factor hasn’t really changed. Kamala Harris, who rose to her current station through one of the more spectacular examples of affirmative action in history and an infamous act of “poontronage,” is a talentless buffoon who is even more inept and unpopular than Biden. Then there’s Pete Buttigieg, the lab-created striver freak from South Bend. Who else? Bernie Sanders? He has shown himself to be as malleable as the rest of the machine’s cogs. 

Democrats are currently preoccupied with finding somebody to replace their shambling puppet ruler, but it might do them some good to ponder this question: why aren’t there any leaders on the Left? There is nobody at the top with any spine, nobody who has the nation’s best interest at heart. A problem this deeply rooted can’t be fixed by swapping Biden for another shill of the oligarchy who has a little more energy.

The globalist institutions in which the liberal “elite” live create empty suits who lack conviction and loyalty to the nation. The system rewards those who kowtow to it and readily obey its soul-warping demands of uniformity. The carbon copy “elites” it produces are obsessed with power and the means of preserving it. When they make mistakes, which is often, their first instinct is to moralize and blame the people. In the name of social justice, they destroy those with competence, originality, and daring and replace them with unqualified people who will take marching orders. Those who rise to the top are followers, slaves to fashion and the day’s absurd dogma. Biden, a former “moderate” whose campaign relied on a misleading perception of familiarity, is no exception. 

The only way for a white man like Joe Biden to succeed in the Democratic Party is to apologize for existing. Who finds such a man inspiring? Who would march into battle with him? Good rulers know how to give a speech that uplifts their people, but today’s occupational “elites” are barely literate in English

Harris is a particularly rich font of the “wisdom” of her class. The system has trained her and others like her to distinguish themselves not by worthy acts of public service (a term they have stolen for their own selfish purposes), but by adopting a freakish, nonsensical language that alienates average people (“Latinx,” “birthing people”) even as it exposes the rulers’ lack of competence. They discredit themselves and degrade the public a little more each time they open their mouths. 

The problem isn’t Biden, it’s that the so-called “adults in the room” who surround him are children with no self-awareness and a violent allergy to accountability. They are incapable of feigning interest in what concerns normal people, and the public is beginning to sense this indifference. The unusually hostile, contemptuous tone of the Biden Administration is a novelty in our politics and a sign of deep insecurity. The “elites” know that they are not legitimate and that their own corruption is what powers the enduring political appeal of Donald Trump, who appears to be on a glide path to the White House in 2024 despite the establishment’s efforts to make him into a pariah, or even a political prisoner. 

Biden doesn’t get a pass for his role in destroying the country because of his feeble condition. What he’s doing at the southern border is treasonous. On some level, he is aware of his responsibility. He did not have to run for the presidency, but he was compelled by his own hunger for power. The “elites” should have stopped him. That’s what they would have done if they loved the country, instead of degrading it with this charade.
