In 2023, Joe Biden managed to do the unthinkable.
After doing more damage to this country in his first two years in office—than any president in recent memory—Biden found a way to top himself, capping off what was easily the worst year of his presidency.
That’s no small feat—even for someone as historically incompetent as Biden.
Remember, this is a president who prior to this year had already overseen the worst border crisis in our nation’s history, a 40-year high of inflation, a disastrous Afghanistan withdrawal and a war in Ukraine—both a direct consequence of his weakness and ineptitude on the world stage.
This is a president who prior to this year had already weaponized the Department of Justice to go after his political opponents and stood in front of Independence Hall in Philadelphia, shortly before the Midterms—like some sort of third world dictator and deemed all supporters of the prior administration to be a “threat to American democracy.”
If that’s not the pot calling the kettle black—then I don’t know what is.
This is a president who in his first year in office managed to fall no less than three times up the steps of Air Force One, and in his second year in office was escorted away from a sycophantic press by a White House staffer who was dressed up as the Easter Bunny.
But just in case anyone needed a reminder of the doddering president’s disastrous last 12 months—here are some of his greatest hits in 2023:
Biden began the year by doing what he does best—lying, obfuscating, deflecting, and making excuses for his horrendous decisions.
When classified documents from his days as vice president were discovered in his garage in Wilmington, Delaware—something the Leftist corporate media had a panic attack over when it involved a different president—Biden defended his actions by saying, “By the way, my Corvette’s in a locked garage, OK? So it’s not like they’re sitting out on the street.”
Yeah, that’s totally fine, nothing to see here, said the Leftist pundits.
When Biden wasn’t pretending to be shocked that unauthorized documents miraculously appeared in his home in Delaware as though Santa just dropped them through the chimney—he was allowing a Chinese spy balloon to fly over our shores—uninhibited for an entire week before it was eventually shot down.
Lord knows what secrets were stolen as it flew over our military bases—as though it were part of the Lewis and Clark Expedition.
But fret not, in November, Biden hashed things out with President Xi Jinping in San Francisco, where the progressives in charge cleaned up the feces from the street, removed the homeless encampments, rolled out the red carpet and waved CCP flags for a Chinese dictator who has no respect for our leader.
According to a White House readout of their meeting, “The two leaders underscored the importance of working together to accelerate efforts to tackle the climate crisis in this critical decade.”
Yes, discussing the Left’s favorite religion is certainly much more important than confronting a dictator about China’s belligerent behavior towards us.
For the record, China is by far the world’s largest polluter, emitting 11.5 billion tonnes of carbon dioxide annually, more than double the amount emitted by the U.S.
But go ahead Joe, keep pretending to care about something you know absolutely nothing about—while destroying the energy sector and putting thousands of people out of work. Greta Thunberg, the world’s most obnoxious and ignorant antisemite must be very impressed.
When Biden wasn’t hobnobbing with Xi, he was appeasing the radical antisemites in his party and telling donors at a private fundraiser in D.C. that Israel and Bibi Netanyahu’s government would lose support for a war they did not start if they don’t change course, and stop what he referred to as “indiscriminate,” bombing of Gaza.
In other words, Biden seems to think that Israel should just leave Hamas—a barbaric terrorist group with the stated goal of wiping Israel off the map and murdering every Jew on every corner of the globe, alone.
Never mind the fact that Israel repeatedly goes out of its way to warn Gazans to get out of harm’s way. But Hamas wants their casualty count to climb so that propagandists on CNN can blame Israel for their deaths.
Just so everyone understands for the millionth time, there is no way to defeat Hamas without also killing civilians, who by the way put that devilish terrorist group in charge of their “government.”
Thankfully, Netanyahu is not interested in what college presidents at Harvard or MIT think about his strategy. He was 100 percent correct when he said soon after the attacks occurred, “We didn’t want this war. It was forced upon us in the most brutal and savage way. Though Israel didn’t start this war, Israel will finish it.”
But I digress.
When Biden isn’t trying to appease the pro-Hamas wing of his party, he continues to dodge any questions relating to his son’s shady overseas business dealings.
Biden can hide from the press all he wants, and Hunter can dodge congressional subpoenas—but the facts will continue to come out in 2024 as the impeachment inquiry unfolds.
Thanks to House Committee on Oversight and Accountability Chairman James Comer (R-Ky.), we now know that between 2015 and 2019, the Biden family set up 20 shell companies that somehow earned more than $24 million, even though there was no clear service that was provided, other than selling Joe Biden as the brand.
We also know that Biden lied when he said his family never received money from China. We know he lied when he said he never spoke to his son, or his associates about his business dealings, and we now know that one of Hunter Biden’s business entities, which received money from Chinese-state linked companies and foreign nationals, made direct monthly payments to Joe Biden.
Meanwhile, as Biden tries to cover up his family’s corruption, Customs and Border Protection reported a record number of single day migrant encounters on December 18, with a whopping 12,600 illegal immigrants trying to enter through Eagle Pass, Texas.
Just more proof that Biden has failed to secure our border and protect American citizens from drug cartels, human traffickers and terrorists.
It’s no wonder Biden’s approval rating currently sits at an abysmal 38 percent, with 55 percent of Americans disapproving of his performance, according to the latest FiveThirtyEight average. To put that in perspective, at the same point in his presidency, Jimmy Carter’s approval rating was 11 points higher, at 49 percent.
The latest RealClearPolitics average shows that 67 percent of Americans believe the country is heading in the wrong direction under Biden.
So, what can we expect from Biden in 2024?
More of the same.
An incoherent foreign policy that emboldens our enemies in Russia, China and Iran.
A radical domestic policy that does nothing to secure our border, curb inflation or lower the price of groceries and gas for everyday Americans.
More hyperbolic speeches like the one in front of Independence Hall—warning about the supposed threat “extremist Republicans” pose to our democracy, and of course more Biden stumbles and falls like the one during the commencement address at the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado this past June.
But don’t worry, puff pieces like this recent one in Axios will keep popping up—with Biden sycophants telling us that Biden is actually “extraordinarily energetic for his age.”
Forgive me, my lying eyes must be deceiving me.
Hopefully 2024 will be the last year that this administration is allowed to destroy our country.
