Congress recessed for the summer passing neither the infrastructure nor spending bills that were the focus of all of Washington’s attention for weeks thanks to Krysten Sinema from Arizona. She personally torpedoed the Biden Administration’s signature piece of legislation that took months to wrangle to that point and then gave the whole thing a big John McCain-like thumbs down.
The debt ceiling suspension put in place under Trump has not been renewed. We are currently more than $6 trillion over it as I type this.

Fungal President Joe Biden looked up from his jello cup long enough to implore Congress to extend the eviction moratorium for those behind on rent and mortgage payments which has been in place for more than a year. Estimates are 6.5 million people will now face eviction who are behind on their rent.
U.S. tax-cows have drawn down their savings at an alarming rate while facing this eviction cliff. But, hey, your per child tax credit is now showing up as a monthly check as long as the Post Office stays on the job. By the way, they are refusing to go along with Biden’s plans for forcing all government employees be vaccinated against a virus which isn’t killing anyone anymore.

This latest wave of homeless people wandering the streets of the U.S. over the next year will be used by the Democrats and the media (but I repeat myself) to demonize the evil Republicans for not DOING SOMETHING about this new crisis.
Never mind that it was wholly manufactured by locking down parts of the world and blowing up both the financial markets and disrupting the natural flow of goods that is a functional economy.
The panic many will feel will be real but the question is who is actually panicking?
Is it the “dirty spreaders” and “anti-science” losers who refuse to take an experimental gene therapy or the ones who ordered all of this insanity in the first place for their own personal and political gain?
Sometimes Losing is Just Losing
At every turn the Biden Administration lost major political battles in the past week. There is no denying that. That is an unqualified good thing. It ensures the anger and frustration over the direction of the country post-Trump will be unstoppable come the mid-term elections despite even the expected voter fraud next fall.
We can count on that just like we could count on it in 2020. But the bigger question I have now is whether or not we’ll actually have those elections if it looks like we’ll have a landslide on the populist side of the political ledger?
What the little people want is anathema to those that congregate every year at Davos, Switzerland to plot out their dystopian future plans for humanity.
So, the odds rise everyday that they will suspend elections in Germany or France as a trial run for next fall’s mid-terms. Book this prediction and double down on it regularly, you might make more on it than in the coming crypto bull market, but only just barely.
When you stop to think this through in normal political calculus, how can Biden and Pelosi spin their failures as anything like victories now? The truth is plain to everyone. They lied, cheated, stole and by all rational accounts staged a coup on January 6th.
They have everything they ever wanted… all the power of the Legislative and Executive branches while simultaneously cowing the Judicial branch into irrelevance …
… and a MILF from ‘Zona undid it all with a press release?
Don’t underestimate the chutzpah of these venal people to try because in Davos’ New Normal all instances of public decency are simply a dog whistle for latent fascists and
white people racists.
But given this string of failures it is no wonder Pelosi is thinking about finally giving up her House seat. After all, what’s left to do after nearly single-handedly destroying every aspect of U.S. legislative procedure. I feel her ennui, there are just no more glass ceilings to break.
Pelosi bluffed hard on the spending and infrastructure bills but forgot that having a 50-50 split in the senate and a united Republican front who knows they are in the mid-term driver’s seat meant that any single Senator with a nominal “D” after their names could take ‘awesome power of the speaker’s gavel’ and shove it right up her saggy, angry bottom.
Cue Sinema, who is truly a free spirit. She also knows the situation in Arizona is a powder keg she doesn’t want to be near when it finally explodes over the results of the election audit.
Action Jackson Reaction
The Davos-beholden Democrat and GOPe reaction to these losses has been increasingly strident and desperate jawboning about the Delta Variant bogeyman while everyone in the West is sick and tired of this nonsense.
Then remember, it was just Monday where Biden was offering $100 to ‘please get the vaccine’ and by the end of the week we’re listening to this ….
