A short article on President Joe Biden after one year in office. A little commentary on how’s Biden is doing?
First, I have to give Biden some serious credit, he’s still walking, talking, and breathing. I think. Seriously, the health of this president has been in question for a very long time, way before he became the Democratic Presidential nominee. And he hasn’t completely hit the dust yet, although many would argue that he looks and sounds pretty bad. Anyway, dazed and confused or not, I hope I’m able to almost walk up plane steps at 96 years old.
Let’s get into it. Shall we?
Approval Ratings – It Ain’t Pretty
They suck but it’s unreliable data. Always was, always will be.
Biden’s Afghanistan Deadly Exit Fiasco
We left 1,500 Americans and many other key assets behind enemy lines, and we lost 13 American service members and at least 169 Afghans in a bomb attack at the Kabul Airport.
While the reason for the hasty exit may have been legit, the method was a disaster.
Biden: One Year In Office – Jobs & Unemployment
On the White House website, you’ll see that
“President Biden’s first year was the greatest year of job creation in American history, with 6.4 million jobs created.”
Wow, how wonderful. You’ll also see it written that
“Recent weekly unemployment claims are down near a level not seen since 1969. Economic growth is the strongest in two generations.”
We’ve been seeing headlines spouting ‘weekly unemployment claims are down near a level not seen since 1969’ on right-leaning news sites since Thanksgiving. The problem is, without going into a thousand-word essay, they’re using inaccurate (seasonally adjusted) data. You’ll find a simple explanation here, but none of that matters, does it?
That’s because we’re not stupid and can see with our own eyes what’s going on every time we leave the house or read the news. We know that in our entire lifetimes, we haven’t seen McDonald’s restaurants closed during the daytime due to lack of staff – until now.
At first, it seemed that the issue was that we were rewarding people for not working. Which was started by Trump, by the way. Yeah, that was pretty stupid, but it turned out to be much bigger than that. There’s a new trend at work here, a new ideology that seems to be beyond the all-knowing government’s understanding. But not a problem. We can swing this into looking like a win, right Mr. President?
We know that when our local stores, restaurants, and small businesses are closed for good or working on limited hours of operation, something ain’t right. And we do NOT see the rosy picture the White House wants us to believe that “Biden’s first year was the greatest year of job creation in American history, with more than 6 million jobs created”.
This is why you cannot trust a thing said from either side – they are all worse than liars – they are liars with an agenda.
Biden Bolstered Domestic Manufacturing
Oh, sweet, that’s a relief. I guess we can all stop worrying about the economy, Biden fixed it.
Under his Made in America Executive Order, federal purchases will help to bolster domestic manufacturing and manufacturing supply chains, and support good-paying, union jobs.
Biden did a Trump – he signed an executive order, that A) does very little, and B) will be undone with the stroke of a pen in 2024 when he leaves office. Nice going Joe, you’re doing a fantastic job.
Biden Restored America’s Global Leadership
Wow, that sounds promising. Do tell…
President Biden restored our global alliances and ended America’s longest war.
Really, Joe, you’re going to seriously bring that 💩-show up?
Okay, sure, Trump started the disaster, then Biden stranded tens of thousands of people who earned the right to be evacuated, with bureaucratic obstacles like waiting for visas. FAIL! Big Fail that cost many lives.

Biden’s Attempts At An Authoritarian Regime
The vaccine mandates, illegal orders, calling American citizens that disagree enemies of the state. This is unforgivable and the founding fathers, as flawed as they were, are probably screaming in their graves at the magnitude and speed of the intentional deterioration of our Constitution.
Biden’s Biggest Blunder To Date
In my opinion, Biden’s biggest blunder. Perhaps to the detriment of hundreds of thousands of American lives, was to keep Anthony Fauci on and accept the advice of the lying pathetic cockroach.
Too Much To List – Biden Has Outdone Himself
Look, I was going to go over each issue, point by point, but now I realize that the man has done so much wrong, done so much damage in a single year, this article would need to be far too long for a blog post. It needs a book to cover the disasters Biden has created.
We ran out of PPE, tests, antivirals, and, well, FOOD. Inflation is through the roof and getting worse, shortages of everything from food to drugs, construction material to workers, it’s bringing America to its knees.
While all of these horrifying things are hitting families all over the country, Biden continued to push stupid crap like Build Back Better BS, by buying our country out of our financial disaster.
Then the man pushes incredibly hard with an authoritarian dictatorship by ordering private business to force American workers to take an experimental drug if they needed it or not – while everyone knows he was forcing their (business) hands to do what he was unable to do as president. That right there, the idea he could try to manipulate an illegal order into fruition via business is really a mad man’s move. All while we face nationwide worker shortages. Unbelievable.
To Be Fair, A Lot Of People Are Happy With The President

Divided We Fall
Should We Die On The Left/Right Sword?
You know what? Let me speak about us for just one minute. You know, you and me, as in all of us. The people and all of that.
We’ve been pulled and beaten into two separate sides for a very long time, by both sides of the political spectrum, all while the elite work their magic, advance their agendas, and keep us preoccupied with one another.
It’s a distraction and a strategy. Divide and conquer. It’s nothing new and we all know it. Yet we continue to move around with every tug of our strings, dutifully pounding each other over the proverbial head, while patting ourselves on the backs for being the smartest people in the rooms.
It’s like all of the morons still on Facebook. Sure, they are evil, steal our data and sell it to anyone, yield the power of large government, and blatantly abuse that influence, – yet millions of people still hold onto that account like it was the Bible itself. Only they read Facebook far more often.
That’s what we’re doing with left and right politics. We know better but continue fighting about things we have no control over as long as we continue to fight. Do you see the absurdity?
That hate is far more destructive, in my mind, than the crap that goes on in politics.
I’m done, Hawkins Out.
