No, Mr. President, you don’t get to tell me how to spend my July 4th

We are instructed by the leftward-leaning media that President Joe Biden was at his compassionate best in last night’s nation-wide speech.
Unfortunately that misses the real news that he made: His presumption that a president from his White House perch can reach out thousands of miles to tell Americans who they should gather with and where.
On “Independence Day” of all things. It’s an irony that Biden (or more likely his script writers) missed.
Less funny and more scary was his threat that he would impose whose excessive COVID-19 restrictions if…well he didn’t exactly say, but it’s hard to miss that he’ll be the judge of that.
Dream on, Mr. President. Those of us who are fed up with a republic that over the past year has morphed into an autocracy run by an oligarchy will do what we damn well please.
If I choose to have a barbecue outside with unmasked relatives and friends, I will. And if it rains, I’ll bring the crowd inside. No matter how sincere and compassionate you work to appear, it’s not in your power to make such threats. Undoubtedly (if a reporter gets to ask) your directive will be “clarified” as mere guidance, as a suggestion. Try to reimpose those lockout restrictions I’m guessing Americans will tell you, “go to hell,” “kiss my ass” and even less subtle expressions of guidance.
By the way, surprise of surprises, the New York Times fact-checked Biden’s speech and found, well, (just a few) things wrong with it. At least the “truth is here” newspaper is trying to look like it intends to factcheck Biden.
President Joe (Plagiarizer) Biden cribs Trump
Note is taken here, but few other places, that President Joe Biden is riding on the COVID-19 train set in motion by ex-President Donald Trump.
If he were the least bit gracious and truly interested in “unity” (he isn’t), he would have mentioned, given a nod to, remarked about or footnoted that Trump deserves even a teeny, tiny credit for the vaccine on which America’s hopes now ride.
Instead, Biden (on his handlers) have declared Trump’s Operation Warp Speed to be words never spoken. Cancelled if you will. The credit for making available a safe–the invention, development, manufacture and distribution of–vaccine goes to Trump and his administration. Biden is less of a man for ignoring or trashing that critical work.
