Biden’s ‘Return to Normalcy’ Is Going to Be Terrible

After spending two years avoiding serious questions about his policy preferences, his team and his prospective presidency, we now know what Joe Biden intends to do should the Electoral College, as expected, vote for him in December: He’ll reopen the swamp for business. The media spent four long years suggesting that President Donald Trump was steeped in corruption, ensconced in partisanship, enmeshed in dangerous foreign policy fiascos. The media assured us that they would defend democracy from Trump’s brutalities, that they would spend every waking moment fighting to prevent anyone from accepting Trumpian standards as the “new normal.”

Instead, the media suggested we needed to return to the old “normal” — by which they meant a system in which the media and Democrats worked hand-in-glove together to lie to the American public about the content of policy (“If you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor!” — former President Barack Obama); in which conventional wisdom was treated as gospel truth, no matter how wrong it was (“There will be no advanced and separate peace with the Arab world without the Palestinian process” — John Kerry on Israel); and in which cozy relationships between corporations and government were considered de rigueur.

They meant a system in which all difficult political questions were put off for another day; in which scandals were brushed off without a second thought; in which even anti-journalistic efforts by Democrats were dismissed as out of hand. It was a system in which constitutional boundaries were routinely overridden in the name of left-wing policy priorities; in which nasty rhetoric by Democrats was written off as a natural byproduct of the right’s innate evil; in which alternative news sources were treated as conspiracy outlets.

That’s the “normal” the media and Democrats wanted.


And it's the normal they'll apparently be pursuing. Biden is stacking his administration with all the members of the establishment Democratic gang. Tony Blinken, most famous for embracing the Iran deal and encouraging more American troops in Syria, will be headed to the State Department. Janet Yellen, fresh from her tenure as Federal Reserve chairwoman under Obama, will be headed to the Department of the Treasury. Jake Sullivan, Biden's national security adviser when he was vice president, most famous for the suggestion that the Iran deal was a stellar piece of negotiation (it wasn't), will become the White House national security adviser.

Meanwhile, the media will continue to cover Biden in sycophantic fashion. This week, The Washington Post ran an entire piece devoted to the wonders of the New Biden Era, titled "Washington's establishment hopes a Biden presidency will make schmoozing great again." The piece celebrated the old normal as "respect for experience and expertise," as "civility and bipartisan cooperation," as an opportunity to "bring people back together." One wonders what sort of peyote the editorial staff of The Washington Post must be ingesting in order to remember the Obama Era so fondly; then, one quickly realizes that they're simply high from huffing Democratic flatulence.

The old normal wasn't good. That's why Donald Trump was elected. It's why Democrats nearly lost the House, and why they seem poised to not take back the Senate despite Trump's personal unpopularity. The old normal stank of cronyism and oligarchy, of corrupt relationships between the Democratic infrastructure and the Democrats' praetorian guard in the media.

Today, the media celebrate the return of the old normal. That celebration is likely to again result in a backlash they can't control. And they'll be just as puzzled as ever about why everyone else wasn't as overjoyed as them about the return of the establishment Democratic swamp.

  1. Ben, there will be no backlash of substance because Democrats now know they can run with impunity fraudulent elections. Welcome to the Banana Republic.
    It’s been said a country can vote its way into socialism but it will have to shoot its way back out. The US may have to test the veracity of that statement.

  2. what will happen if OBiden is coronated is,Israel, Saudi Arabia and maybe Jordan will nuke the nukes and maybe some other stuff in Iran. The economy will keep going for awhile on automatic ;pilot, and a peaceful protest that will dwarf MLK.s Civil Rights Movement will begin, bringing in a gigantic congressional upheaval by 2022 and a paralysis of DC through mass protests, nation-wide work stoppages and other forms of civil disobedience until OBiden is impeached and possibly tried. We have to eliminate Camel Breath Harris along the way, too.

    1. How exactly will that be possible if we let this voter fraud stand? We will never have a fair election again. These people need to be arrested, tried and punished. DJT WON in a landslide.

    2. You are so right. It is frightening that American’s believe that Biden got 80M votes. A man who the few times he campaigned could only draw less than 30 ppl at his rallies, 47 years of bigoted -0- accomplishments, inappropriate touching of females, China / Ukraine $$ laundering AND who clearly has dementia.

    1. “the grand theft of our country will return back to normal , I ask in 2 years what will JOE & COMPANY use for $$$$$$$$$”


    2. What will they use for money? Everything you have. Taxes will be sky high and interest rates will double the 13% interest that happened during Carters reign. You couldn’t sell a house or afford to buy one. Even if declared the winner, China Joe Biden will never be accepted as the legitimate president of the United States. If this fraud is allowed to stand the long shadow of corruption and illegitimacy will descend over the Biden and the Democrat party. Biden will be long gone but the distrust, that began with the illegitimate election of John Kennedy and the attempted election of Al Gore in 2000 will return again and again to besmirch the Democratic Socialist party.

  3. Biden is a POS,the only house he belongs in charge of is his basement and he would F-‘K that up.The whole democrat group Bidens,Pelosi,Schumer,Schitt,Nadler,oh HUNTER belong in jail for life!!!

  4. As giggling Harris, dementia joe, the Squad and all of the other Caucasian hating democrats destroy America, the U.S. media will be telling you what a great job they are doing!!!!

  5. I am one of the staunchest supporters of the American Flag; and as I sit on my front porch trying to put things into perspective, it suddenly occurred to me that it will very soon become one of the “casualties of war”…the war for our standards, our way of life, our pride and joy, our very souls, but most importantly, our FREEDOM!!!
    America! The gem in the crown of liberty and freedom! The “home of the free because of the brave”!
    Everything our ancestors have fought and died for has suddenly been cast aside in the name of “putting our country back together”!
    America! My birthplace, my ancestor’s birthplace, my home is now in jeopardy! I feel as though my entire life is in jeopardy and we are in serious danger of being “prisoners in our own homeland”!
    I ask you, is this democracy?!
    I cannot express the chagrin I am guilty of when I see the possible incoming entourage of idiots that we will be forced to call our “leaders”! The pure infiltration of a Communist takeover is at hand. Like a venomous snake, it has been writhing and slithering it’s way into our homes, our jobs, our way of life via the biased and controlled media and the Obama’s and Clinton’s; the Bilderberg Group and the New World Order….


  6. This so called NEW TEAM really SUCKS, I will start with the biggest A–HOLE of them all john kerry the so called war hero as he refers to himself 3 purple hearts, 2 from slivers, 1 from a scratch from a person of the oposit ………..

  8. Biden’s version of governance is a far cry from the ideal of American Liberty and the Leftist name calling works both ways in this free country which will not be free for long I fear

  9. Time for the people to take to the streets and stop this “COUP” that’s being used against President Trump. I’m ready and able! Marine Corp 74-77 Combat Vet and still under oath to protect my country from invaders “DOMESTIC OR FOREIGHN”. Locked and loaded !

    1. Amen, brother!
      Fire base DeLozier hears loud and clear!
      It is high time we actually stand and be counted!
      I love my country and am lost in the idea that people cannot see what this is coming down to…..

  10. If Creepy Joe gets away with usurping the Presidency by the massive election fraud that his hoodlum syndicate foisted on this country, almost everyone will know it. They will also know that the crook who will be imposing as their President is a habitual and pathological liar and a traitor. What is “normal” about that?

  11. President Trump was indeed elected to reverse the Obama-Biden “normalcy”. Why would anyone think a return to the new Obama-Biden “normalcy” be any better? The Obama-Biden “normalcy” was, in fact, a rejection of what is actually normal and proper.

  12. But none of that WAS “normal” for America! It’d been being fed in for decades so younger people couldn’t recognize how far from American “normal” it really was! Trump was trying to restore American “normal” against massive resistance from nearly all quarters.

  13. I can’t imagine anyone with any rational ability to think for themselves that believes that Biden has any control over what the upcoming administration will be doing. Our nation has been infiltrated with Progressive Socialists who will be dictating what Biden does. The coup for the White House has been successful, let’s pray we can counter that through Congress and the judicial system.

  14. Ben, you should run for an office. It would be nice to have someone in Congress with some common sense use logic to shut down Pelosi & Aoc. It might even shine a light on the stupidity & irrationalism that’s become the norm in the government to the public-who like sheep, are blindly accepting of what they say as truth.

    Sound, logical ideas would draw support from both sides & maybe even from the American people.

    I’m sure Trump would back you.

  15. These Marxist maggots will only get away with it if we the people sit on our butts and allow them to get away with it. Like the man said, “The tree of liberty must, from time to time, be watered with the blood of tyrants.” SEND THEM TO HELL!
