A TALE OF TWO PRESIDENTS | By Wolff Bachner | May 23, 2022
Welcome to a summary of the accomplishments and failures of the two most recent presidents of the United States. Donald Trump entered office as a political outsider who promised to “Make America Great Again.” Joe Biden entered office as the ultimate political insider who promised to reunite the American people.
Of these two very different men, one accomplished many of his goals, and the other man failed on every level. I will leave it to you, the reader, to decide who is the better president.
PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP:
After pledging to end America’s useless foreign wars as one of his core campaign promises, President Donald “Mean Tweets” Trump negotiated the end of the Afghanistan war, and he was the first president in decades not to start a new war. After the nation and the economy was devasted by the pandemic, President Trump created “Operation Warp Speed,” which developed a vaccine for Covid 19 faster than any vaccine in history.
Under Trump’s leadership, America became energy independent and began exporting oil to other nations. At the pump, gas prices fell, reaching below two dollars a gallon in many states.
Trump reduced taxes and lowered unemployment to record-breaking levels. Black communities had the lowest unemployment levels on record, and Black household incomes reached an all-time high.
As a result of President Trump’s leadership, four Arab nations joined the historic Abraham Accords, which established diplomatic relations with Israel. He declared Jerusalem was the eternal, undivided capital of Israel, and he finally moved the US Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem after decades of delay by Presidents Clinton, Bush, and Obama.
Embracing a strong America first platform, President Trump was able to convince Mexico to follow his “Remain in Mexico” policy and illegal immigration plummeted. He also put an end to eight long years of President Obama’s infuriating “Catch and Release” program that allowed hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens to remain in the United States, never show up for their immigration hearing, and disappear forever into the American heartland.
Trump stood up to China, brought jobs and manufacturing back from overseas, re-negotiated NAFTA in America’s favor, held face-to-face discussions with North Korea and demolished ISIS without starting another war in the Middle East. On Trump’s watch, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the terrorist leader of ISIS was killed, as was General Qassim Suleimani, the Commander of Iranian Forces responsible for the deaths of hundreds of American soldiers.
Yes, Trump could be crass and controversial, but despite two years of the Russia hoax and one bogus, failed impeachment, President Trump got things done. He improved the lives of the American people, negotiated the end of a useless, costly war, and rebuilt the economy. Trump stood up to America’s adversaries, avoided new military conflicts and ended the flood of illegal immigration. Most importantly, President Donald Trump put America and the American people first.
PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN:
President “Creepy Joe” Biden created an absolute disaster with his botched Afghanistan withdrawal, and now, the entire world is on the brink of possible nuclear war thanks to his dismal handling of the build-up to the war in Ukraine. As a result of Biden’s incompetent handling of the Afghanistan withdrawal, 13 American soldiers died, and hundreds of Americans were left behind, as were thousands of Afghan citizens who helped the United States during the war. Thanks to Biden’s reckless/feckless actions, untold numbers of those abandoned Afghanis were tortured, arrested, or killed, and over 80 billion dollars of American military equipment was abandoned to fall into the hands of the murderous Taliban.
Making matters worse, Biden has brought almost 50,000 Afghanis to the United States, the vast majority of whom did not work for the U.S. during the war. According to the Pentagon’s Inspector General’s Office, “As of November 2, 2021, [National Ground Intelligence Center] personnel had identified 50 Afghan personnel in the United States with information in DOD records that would indicate potentially significant security concerns.”
Today, Afghanistan is an Islamist theocracy, run by the Taliban terror organization. People are starving, disease runs rampant, women and children have been sold into sexual slavery and forced marriages, and girls are no longer allowed to go to school.
Thanks to President Biden’s abysmal leadership, mind-boggling failure in Afghanistan, and constant wavering during the buildup to the war in Ukraine, Russia invaded Ukraine on February 24, 2022. Two months later, Biden, along with every single democrat in Congress and many complicit republicans, sent $40 billion to Ukraine. This money is enriching the military-industrial complex while many American families can no longer afford enough food. The aid package, which lacks any meaningful checks and balances and does not specify how the money will be spent, was jammed through Congress in hours without any serious debate.
Biden talks about the need to protect Ukraine’s borders and sovereignty while he deliberately refuses to enforce existing US laws against illegal immigration. After ending Trump’s “Remain in Mexico” policy, Biden is now fighting tooth and nail in federal court to end Title 42, the last remaining effective tool to deport illegal aliens. If he is successful in convincing a judge to end Title 42 [Editor’s Note: the Biden regime’s scheme, for now, is blocked] it is estimated that the illegal immigration crisis will increase to 18,000 illegal aliens crossing the southern border per day (6,570,000 per year). One can only wonder how the American people will pay for the explosion of illegal aliens released into the United States. What else will American citizens have to sacrifice so the Democrats can flood the country with illegal aliens they hope will become future Democrat voters?
Not content with the turmoil in Europe, Biden has also relentlessly criticized Israel and downplayed the importance of the Abraham Accords while his administration and the Democrats in Congress engage in regular rounds of Israel-bashing and rank Jew-hatred.
In her latest outburst of open Jew-hatred and anti-Israel insanity, Representative Rashida Tlaib recently introduced a resolution to formally recognize the alleged “Palestinian Nakba.” As usual, the resolution was co-sponsored by the infamous squad of Jew-haters, Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Jamaal Bowman and Cori Bush.
It is no surprise that the commencement speaker at CUNY, which is part of New York’s state-sponsored university system, has openly called to abolish Israel as a nation and endorsed the ax murder of three Israeli Jews on her Instagram account, posting “Glory to the axe of resistance” in Arabic. Open Jew-hate and blood libels against the nation of Israel are constantly promoted by the Democrat party, with no pushback from Biden and his administration. This has led to a frightening increase in hate crimes and hate speech against the Jewish people in America. The Jew-haters feel emboldened, and many American Jews now fear for their safety.
On the home front, under Biden and far-left democrats, we have record-high inflation, the highest gas prices in American history, and a wide-open border with over two million illegal aliens flooding across the southern border. Illegal immigration is costing the American taxpayers over $110 billion per year, record-breaking crime and murder are out of control, and more covid deaths occurred under Biden than during Trump’s presidency.
As President Biden’s poll numbers fall and over 80 percent of Americans say the country is going in the wrong direction, Biden announced a plan to create an unconstitutional “Ministry of Truth” to censor American free speech. While the democrats under Biden have failed to prevent a massive baby formula shortage, the president ordered the DHS to investigate parents as domestic terrorists for protesting at their local school boards.
During Joe Biden’s 40-plus years in government, the corrupt Biden family has received millions from China and Russia. As the money pours into his family’s coffers, he is responsible for a pro-China, globalist policy that is allowing China to supplant America as the world’s leading economy. Biden has refused to investigate the Wuhan lab leak that probably caused the pandemic, and overturning another Trump decision, he rejoined the corrupt WHO. In a move that makes most sane individuals shake their heads in disbelief, President Biden has allowed Russia to negotiate on America’s behalf to reestablish the disastrous Iran nuclear agreement.
Making matters even worse, Biden has also rejoined the Paris Accords that place major financial burdens on the United States while allowing China and India to continue as the world’s leading polluters. As Americans wonder how they will find the money to buy enough gas to get to work, Biden canceled the Keystone pipeline, ended oil leases on federal land, and blocked offshore oil exploration. In a pathetic display of stupidity, Biden got on his knees and begged rogue nations like Venezuela and Iran to sell more oil to the United States. Biden would rather enrich foreign tyrants than restore American energy independence.
Most recently, an unprecedented leak from the Supreme Court revealed that a majority of Justices are leaning in favor of overturning Roe v. Wade. This has led to pro-abortion supporters rioting, invading Roman Catholic churches during Sunday mass, bombing a pro-life center, and protesting in front of conservative justice’s homes despite federal law against protesting in front of the home of any judge or juror. Typical of the Biden administration, the DOJ has refused to even investigate the illegal protests at the justices’ homes. They are probably too busy investigating American parents who don’t want their young children taught CRT or told they may be transgender by their first-grade teachers.
While Biden blames everyone but himself for the catastrophes he has created, Americans wonder how they will be able to eat or pay the rent. Trump may be a foul-mouthed, mean tweeting jerk, but under his leadership, Americans were not facing starvation and the world was not on the brink of nuclear annihilation. One can only hope that the Republicans will retake the house and senate in November and that they keep their promises to restore America to greatness. If they don’t, I fear for the future of our great nation.
