What is behind Biden’s campaign and other comments?

Government Watchman: What’s Behind Joe’s Campaign?

President Biden’s order for federal agencies to encourage voting “might sound benign,” but it isn’t. warn Wall Street Journal’s Tarren Bragdon and Stewart Whitson. First, “the Constitution gives the President no authority over federal elections”; it grants it to the states and to Congress. More worryingly, such efforts “may target groups expected to vote for the president’s party” and even “take the form of pressure.” And although the Bragdon and Whitson’s Foundation for Government Accountability filed freedom of information requests in July to obtain information on implementation plans, “not a single agency has provided the documents we requested.” So the group is now suing – hoping that “Americans can learn if something inappropriate is happening before they cast their midterm ballots.”

From right: Border Woes Feed Crime

Amid rising crime in cities across the country, ‘Americans are feeling unsafe — and blaming Biden and other Democrats’ Marc A. Thiessen of the Washington Post claims. A prime culprit: “The disaster that Biden unleashed on our southern border.” “Fentanyl overdose deaths crossing the border hit record highs in 2021,” and the crisis has forced Customs and Border Protection to “draw resources.” shift away from drug prohibition”. Meanwhile, “the same cartels are involved in both human and drug trafficking,” using caravans to distract the CBP and allow shipments to slip through. Finally, urban drug gangs fueled by cross-border shipments routinely engage in armed violence. “Until the Democrats reverse course on border security… the crime tide will continue — as will Biden’s collapse in the polls.”

Conservative: Corp. America’s Wake Racism

“Since the death of George Floyd nearly two years ago, America’s largest corporations have made massive spending commitments in support of racial justice.” observes Daniel Lennington on The American Mind. “Initial corporate investment in racial justice initiatives has now exceeded $200 billion,” but that’s not all. Major Fortune 500 companies “have decided to explicitly discriminate against their own customers based on their race.” Case in point: Cable giant Comcast sponsors a program that offers minority-owned businesses “free consulting, media, advertising and technical support, plus $10,000 in grants.” Businesses owned by white men are excluded from the program. And this is just one such program championed by Corporate America. Such “widespread tolerance [of] Racial discrimination is a dangerous shift in American culture. … There are no reservations about equality.”

Foreign Desk: So much for The ‘Smart Power’

Amid mounting fears that Putin is using nuclear weapons in Ukraine, asks Jim Geraghty of National Review: “Shouldn’t the vaunted ‘smart power’ of the Democrats produce better results?” bragging about their philosophy of ‘power intelligent” no matter how many times it led to ‘strategic catastrophes and mass deaths’ in Syria and Afghanistan. There’s “a recurring pattern: A Democratic challenger declaring that … it’s about time a smarter, more refined Democratic replacement came in and fixed things,” before admitting “that the world is complicated and messy, and that Achieving US foreign policy goals is extremely difficult.”

Media Editor: CNN Bias is destroying the network

“It took Warner Media 23 days to fold CNN+,” notes Stephen Miller at Spectator World. Why? “CNN has become the network of opposition to Donald Trump and the Republicans, without a single opposing standpoint for balance” — although “the network continues to pretend it is otherwise.” And “until it can reconcile those two models, it will never succeed.” Brian Stelter “acts like he’s a straight newsman,” despite being “a janitor for a largely agenda-driven industry,” and “CNN won’t get any value back…until it lets go of such personalities.” One thing is certain: “CNN cannot go any further on the current path. The problem is that none of those responsible seem to realize it.”
