What Biden Has Actually Accomplished vs. Dangerous Anti-Biden Propaganda

Forget About Biden’sCruel Summer’—He’s Doing Big Things

He’s ended America’s longest war, got vaccines distributed at no cost nationwide and halved the child poverty rate. So why all the stories about ‘Biden‘s Cruel Summer’?

David Rothkopf Daily Beast

We are both old enough to remember a time when you picked up the newspaper in the morning or turned on the television news to find out what was happening in the world. Now, it is not that simple.

Opinion, spin, misguided attempts at “objectivity” that produce false equivalencies, the partisanship of some media outlets and a herd mentality in the press have made it difficult to know where the facts end and the truth begins. When untrue or misleading narratives emerge, they can take on a life of their own and have serious real world consequences—shifting the political landscape, remaking polls, changing how subsequent developments are viewed or even impacting whether and how they take place.

This has seldom been made more clear than in the recent treatment of President Biden in the media. Not only has much of it been divorced from reality, misguided, or twisted, but the real world implications of the narratives that have emerged in the past several weeks could have lasting negative ramifications for the country.

1. I have heard a dozen times that Biden's polls

are down because of his COVID response. He got everyone vaccinated that was willing to take it. What is he supposed to do hold the idiots that won't take it by the hand to get a shot? He does the only thing possible by mandating some to get it and it is tyerany and is compared to Hitler.

4. The MSM is just a mouthpiece for the 1%. Division breeds profits - that is ALL they care about.

This has always been the case.

But today the damage done is magnified because of technology.

In the past, folks got a newspaper once or twice a day, a magazine weekly or monthly.

Plenty of time to process, winnow out the disinformation, and use reason.

But today they get the news updates every minute on their cell phones from websites and social media. No time at all for those who are not trained to think to process the real from the disinformation.

Thus we get Qanon.

And the 1% are as happy as pigs in slop.

5. Well...

All I can say is, welcome to the life of sun sign Scorpio. No matter how well you do anything, there will be loud opposition and constant attempts to discredit all your achievements. Hillary Clinton being another good example. No matter what you do, you will be trashed for it, even if you save the planet and everything on it, the reward will equate to a blow with the back of the hand from all who should be grateful more often than not.

As a severe Scorpio, this is the story of my life, right there in a short observation. And why I hate my life and will see it as a relief when I get to go someplace else.
