(DCWatchdog.com) – On Sunday morning, Secretary of State Antony Blinken and Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin were en route to Kyiv to meet with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zilenskyy when President Joe Biden received a double dose of bad news for his and the Democrats’ future.
First, Peter Baker, chief White House correspondent for ultra-liberal New York Times, appeared on NBC News. He stated, “The Biden administration just is happy to have the [mask] mandates go away because they know that, politically, it’s just a mess, but they don’t want to give up the authority.”
This statement confirms the widespread belief that Biden and others in his administration, like Dr. Anthony Fauci, want the “authority” of telling Americans what to do about the coronavirus, even though they are becoming more aware that Americans are resisting that authority by increasing numbers every week.
Even though Baker’s assessment of mask mandates is correct, it was delivered by a reporter considered friendly to Democrats and therefore more painful for Biden.
Also, on Sunday morning, the second piece of bad news for Biden — much more critical than Baker’s message — was delivered when Democrat Congressman Henry Cuellar (D-TX) said on Fox News Sunday, “Right now, some of the actions by the administration is not helping Democrats, certainly in South Texas, when it comes to oil and gas, when it comes to immigration policies.”
This punch to the stomach of Biden and all Democrats — again, judged correct by objective political pundits — brings home the most commonly offered prediction as to why Democrats will lose control of the U.S. House of Representatives after the dust clears from November elections: Immigration policies and oil and gas issues that are causing pain at the pump for American consumers.
You need only look at the most recent polls to see that Biden has polled lower at this stage of his presidency than any other president — other than Donald Trump — in modern American presidential history.
All in all, on this Sunday, double-trouble hit Biden hard.
