So Much For Mr. Nice Guy
During President Biden's press conference yesterday, a left-wing PBS reporter suggested that because Joe Biden is such a nice guy migrants now feel welcome to come to America. And that's why our border is so overwhelmed right now.
The reporter was expressing something that many people believed, including many young Christians who voted for Biden. I think it should be obvious by now that Joe Biden is not a nice guy.
A nice guy who becomes president doesn't come into office eager to ensure that there are more abortions in America this year than last year. A nice guy doesn't force Americans who find abortion morally repugnant to pay for what we know is the taking of innocent life.
Race baiting is when someone exploits race for political advantage by smearing their opponents. Nice guys don't do that. But that's what Joe Biden did last year when he repeatedly lied by claiming that President Trump had praised neo-Nazis. He did not!
Biden did it again at the press conference when he suggested that Americans who support voter ID laws are morally the same as segregationists. For the record, 75% of all Americans support voter ID laws, including 69% of black Americans. But "Mr. Nice Guy" just blasted three-fourths of the country as bigots.
A nice guy doesn't wipe away all the safeguards at the border, causing a massive human tragedy. A nice guy would not block the media from visiting border facilities so we can't see what's happening.
A nice guy doesn't tell the big lie that Donald Trump threw five year-olds out of America to starve on the other side of the border. That's a disgusting slander. Nice guys don't do that, but Biden did do that in his press conference.
Here's another lie. Biden insisted yesterday that most migrants were being sent back to Mexico. Really? If that's true, then why are we flying migrants to processing centers on the Canadian border? If that's true, then why are our detention facilities at 700% capacity or more?
It's not true. And, according to the liberal media outlet Axios, only 13% of migrant families are being returned to Mexico.
A closing thought. As I noted yesterday, that press conference was difficult to watch. But we weren't the only ones watching. The whole world saw that press conference. I can only imagine what they must be saying today in Beijing, Moscow and Tehran.
Ready For The Transformation?
I want to focus on another comment Biden made yesterday, which I thought was very revealing.
Asked about his plans in four years, and whether he could be running against Donald Trump for reelection, the guy who claims he wants to bring us together launched another sarcastic attack on Trump. But then he said this: "I have no idea whether there'll be a Republican Party [in four years]. Do you?"
Biden's quip got a few chuckles from the liberal reporters, but it wasn't sarcasm. The extreme agenda Biden, Harris, Pelosi and Schumer are pushing is designed to radically transform America.
Many of the reporters yesterday were also pushing that agenda. They repeatedly questioned Biden on whether or not he had the guts to eliminate the filibuster so progressives could ram through their extreme agenda.
In fact, there were no questions yesterday about COVID or when our schools might fully reopen. But the filibuster was mentioned 27 times!
And the signals Biden gave yesterday made it clear that he is willing to blow up the Senate so Schumer and Pelosi – with a 50/50 Senate and a razor thin majority in the House – can achieve Barack Obama's dream of "fundamentally transforming America."
Joe Biden is not trying to unite the country, my friends. Not when he calls 75% of Americans who support commonsense election reforms bigots!
Biden and Harris know America is not racist. Quite the opposite. We have elected a black president and a black vice president.
But they also know that no American wants to be called a racist, and that's exactly why they keep labeling half the country as racists. They are trying to smear conservatives, hoping the label will stick, hoping to destroy the conservative movement.
Most Americans oppose amnesty and the open borders agenda. But Biden is not trying to unite the country when he ignores public opinion. The border crisis is not a mistake. It is key to the left's desire to transform the country with millions of migrants.
They want H.R. 1 in order to nationalize elections and institutionalize all the illegal changes (here, here and here) that occurred last year like massive mail-in balloting with no voter identification.
They want the Green New Deal to fundamentally transform the American economy and implement their socialist agenda.
So Nice Guy Joe let the cat out of the bag yesterday. The left believes this is their moment to destroy the conservative movement and transform America into a socialist nation.
The Border Crisis Is Real
Some commentators on the left are dismissing the border crisis as a "right-wing talking point." It's not. Sen. Susan Collins, one of the most liberal Republicans in the Senate, toured the border last night and tweeted this:
"Border Patrol is overwhelmed, overworked, & discouraged by new policies. Agents took us through a dangerous path to the Rio Grande where we could hear the Cartel members taunting us across the river. Human trafficking, child abuse, & drug smuggling are rampant. This is a crisis."
Common Sense Prevails
I am pleased to report that Georgia Governor Brian Kemp signed legislation into law yesterday that implements several important commonsense reforms that will restore integrity to Georgia's election process. Here are some of the key elements of the new law:
- Voter ID will be required when requesting and submitting absentee ballots.
- The use of ballot drop boxes will be limited.
- State bureaucrats are restricted from entering into so-called "consent decrees" that change election laws.
- It prevents private groups like Mark Zuckerberg's Center for Tech and Civic Life from funding official elections activities.

Chag Sameach – A Joyous Festival
Tomorrow night, Jews all over the world will celebrate the miracle of Passover, commemorating the liberation of their people from ancient Egypt.
The Book of Exodus tells us that Moses was sent by God to tell Pharaoh to "Let my people go." When Pharaoh refused, a series of plagues were inflicted on the Egyptian people. Through it all, Pharaoh's heart hardened and he still refused to end the bondage of the Jews.
The final plague that God used to free the Jews from Pharaoh and Egyptian captivity was to kill all the firstborn males.
Forewarned by God, Jews marked their doors with the blood of a lamb, and, as a result, He passed over their homes. Pharaoh finally relented and released the Hebrew people. (Exodus, Chapter 12.) God told the Jewish people to mark the day as a memorial day and to observe it as a feast to the Lord forever.
God was with His people then as He liberated the Jews of Egypt and led them to the promised land of Israel. He is with them now.
To all of our Jewish friends, Chag Sameach, a joyous festival!
