The further to the left or the right you move, the more your lens on life distorts.

The narrative slowly morphs by the day. First it was "unity." The Democrats appear to have won the presidential election despite so many anomalous data points (indicating voting irregularities) that only fools and the willfully ignorant can accept the trope that "there was no voter fraud." Then, the narrative moved toward "civility," even as mobs of antifa/BLM thugs attacked elderly Trump supporters eating dinner in Washington, DC and elsewhere (as Democrats said nothing to condemn those actions and claimed the attacks "were taken out of context"). Now, we hear that because Trump refuses to concede (completely understandable, given the voting anomalies and on-going court cases) the "transition" is somehow in trouble, and poor Joe Biden won't be able to release his fantasy plan for eliminating COVID-19. What a joke.

Donald Trump and his administration deserve enormous credit for eliminating red tape and establishing a private industry - government partnership that got viable vaccines developed in record time. As I recall, Trump demanded and got logistical planning for vaccine distribution started months and months ago (prescient) even as the Democrats and their trained hamsters in the media ridiculed him for stating (correctly, it turns out) that vaccines would be available by the end of this year. 

Joe Biden tells us that he needs to get national security briefings so he can plan for vaccine distribution. Uh, Joe ... a plan has been developed, competent people are working on it, the military and big pharma are involved—just take a step back and let the adults do the work they've already started. And should you become president, don't muck it up with bureaucratic red tape and big government nonsense that demands a "diverse" distribution as opposed to an effective one.

And now, in an effort to denigrate the truly remarkable job that Trump did on COVID vaccines, Biden is telling us that it's "not enough to have the vaccines, it's all about vaccination." Deep, Joe, really deep.

If things play out as expected, Donald Trump will be President of the United States for two more months. I know that galls the Democrats, but maybe they should work on a little "unity" and "civility" and accept the notion that competent people don't need their hands held for months in order to transition into the presidency.

In that regard, it's worth noting that in 2016 during the Obama-Trump transition, the Obama Team of 2s did everything possible to sabotage the incoming administration. Julie Kelly comments:

[Just this week, Barack Obama] told a swooning Scott Pelley on “60 Minutes” that “there are a set of traditions that we have followed in the peaceful transfer of power. The outgoing president congratulates the incoming president, instructs the government and the agencies to cooperate with the new government coming in.”

If those remarks don’t make your eyes roll all the way back in your head and prompt a loud guttural guffaw, nothing will. Between Election Day 2016 and Inauguration Day 2017, Barack Obama and Joe Biden may have given a public impression of the peaceful transfer of power, but they were working behind the scenes to sabotage the incoming president and his team. Obama, on his way out the door, set in motion four straight years of internal insurrection. 

It was sedition, not transition.

At the very moment Barack Obama welcomed Trump to the Oval Office on November 10, 2016 for a kumbaya photo op, his FBI was spying on Trump campaign advisor Carter Page, and by extension, Donald Trump. Barack Obama’s FBI, under the corrupt leadership of James Comey, used fabricated political opposition research to convince a secret court that Page was a Russian agent and had conspired with the Russians to rig the election. Comey and Sally Yates, Obama’s deputy attorney general, signed the initial FISA warrant on October 21, 2016.

Comey’s FBI also was investigating three other Trump associates including his former campaign manager and Lt. General Michael Flynn, the incoming national security advisor.

After Trump won, Obama continued to stoke the fantasy that Trump’s election was illegitimate due to Russia’s “attack” on our democracy. On December 9, 2016, Obama amplified the farce by instructing his intelligence community to conduct a “full investigation” into the 2016 election.

Maybe Biden et al ought to focus on being sure that (unlike the first administration Biden worked in) the new Biden administration makes a "transition" to a governance model that isn't rife with scandal, incompetence, and dishonesty.

If past history serves, my guess is that Trump will accomplish more in his remaining two months than Joe Biden and his emerging Team of 2s will accomplish in their first two years.


The Biden era (predictably, a near-repeat of the Obama era) is likely to begin in late January. It would behoove Biden's handlers to consider this tweet:

None. At. All.
