There is plenty of evidence Biden is extorting Ukraine to stop investigating him. Got it.

So why was Trump withholding funding Congress approved for them?

The GOP wants Hunter Biden to be a thing so badly. "Stop trying to make Hunter happen. It's not going to happen."

Biden and Democrats been failing. They just wasted a bunch of time negotiating an infrastructure bill with Republicans when anyone who has spent more than two minutes following politics knows Republicans are just running out the clock as much as possible. Waste as much time negotiating as possible and then vote no. The first federal judge under Biden was confirmed 4 1/2 months after he was elected. Trump got over 200 judges confirmed. Republicans spent all their time confirming judges, not trying to make deals with Dems. Dem FAIL. GOP WIN.

Trump got the Justice depart to try to get reporters to turn over their sources. They secretly spied on them trying to find those sources. Biden was elected and they found out about Trumps illegal activities getting the Justice Department to spy on reporters. What did Biden do? He continues the practice. FAIL

Merric Garland was Obama’s pick for the Supreme Court. Republicans said FU, we don’t confirm any Judges nominated by a Dem. Biden is elwcted and now Merric Garland is the new Attorney General. He is in charge of cleaning up the mess left over by Trump/William Barr’s illegal activities. What has Merric Garland decided to do? Nothing. FAIL

Did you get that from Rachel Maddow? I saw her talking about it myself.

Yes, some of it. Been reading about it too. I can’t believe you would watch Racheal Maddow.

This isn’t really a Biden thing. More like a general economy thing.

Deutsche Bank issues dire economic warning for America
https://thehill.com/opinion/finance/557 ... or-america

If the U.S. economy descends into an inflation spiral like that experienced after World War II, we could be on the brink of excruciating economic pain.

However, the profligate spending by Congress is only part of the problem.

According to Deutsche Bank, “Monetary stimulus has been equally breath-taking. In numerical terms, the Fed’s balance sheet has almost doubled during the pandemic to nearly $8tn. That compares with the 2008 crisis when it only increased by a little more than $1t, and then increased another $2tn in the subsequent six years.”

The Deutsche Bank report concludes with this dire warning, “We worry that inflation will make a comeback. Few still remember how our societies and economies were threatened by high inflation 50 years ago. The most basic laws of economics, the ones that have stood the test of time over a millennium, have not been suspended. An explosive growth in debt financed largely by central banks is likely to lead to higher inflation. … Rising prices will touch everyone. The effects could be devastating, particularly for the most vulnerable in society. Sadly, when central banks do act at this stage, they will be forced into abrupt policy change which will only make it harder for policymakers to achieve the social goals that our societies need.”

As mentioned above, the German people are well aware that skyrocketing inflation in and of itself can spark more than just economic upheaval. Hyperinflation, like that experienced in post-World War I Germany, can also lead to social disorder and political chaos.

In fact, one of the reasons Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party came to power in Weimar Germany was the public's resentment concerning the hyperinflation they suffered as a result of endless money printing by Germany’s central bank in the 1920s to pay off World War I reparations.

Throughout history, we have seen inflation-spurred panic manifest in social, political and economic turmoil. The looming question is how Americans will deal with the strong possibility of a post-pandemic inflation environment the likes of which could be unprecedented in our nation’s history.

Or... might not.

If Manchin and Sinema won't play ball, there isn't very much the Biden administration can do. A few exec orders, a few judges, maybe some reconciliation bills. But nothing transformational. 2022 and 2024 may be rough for the Dems if voters feel like they didn't get much done.

That is the McConnell plan, and he is masterful at it.
