So President Biden has completed 100 days as president , administered more than 200 million of Trump's vaccines, has the 3rd lowest approval rating since Truman, has pissed off the conservatives with rich tax proposals, has pissed off progressives for not giving away enough free stuff.....and still remains in power to the dismay of Trump's inserectionists and Harris's prayers.

Is he a roaring success, or dismal failure?

Biden’s 100-Day Approval Rating Is Better Than Trump’s, but Third-Worst Since Truman

As President Joe Biden gets close to his 100th day in office, his approval rating is better than that of his predecessor, Donald Trump, according to the latest ABC News/Washington Post poll. But that isn’t saying much. With 52 percent of Americans approving of Biden’s job performance, and 42 percent disapproving, it marks the third-lowest approval rating for any president in the first 100 days since Harry Truman. The two people who had worse ratings were Gerald Ford in 1974, when he had a 48 percent approval rating after his pardon of Richard Nixon, and Donald Trump, who was at 42 percent at this point in his presidency four years ago. From Truman to Biden, the average approval rating at the 100-day mark is 66 percent.



Seems like the standards are dropping. Soon, according to my mathematical calculations, 30% will get you a pass

US to end AstraZeneca hoarding by sharing vaccines with world

[https://static]

By Matthew Knott

April 27, 2021 — 4.50am

Washington: The Biden administration has announced it will soon begin sharing tens of millions of doses of AstraZeneca’s COVID-19 vaccine with other countries given there is no need for them in the United States.

The US is expected to have around 60 million AstraZeneca doses available to ship overseas in May and June, depending on approval from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

The White House has not announced which countries will receive the vaccine, but India would be an obvious choice given the alarming surge of COVID-19 cases there.

Canada and Mexico, which both border the US, have previously received shipments from America’s AstraZeneca stockpile and are eager to get access to more doses.


The commie is giving away the stuff now. America's stuff

Human Smugglers Bypass Border Patrol, Bedeviling Sheriffs And Ranchers In South Texas

April 24, 20217:00 AM ET

John Burnett/NPR

When immigration policy changes in Washington, D.C., it's felt immediately on the Jones Ranch, located an hour's drive north of the Rio Grande in South Texas.

Whit Jones III — in a mud-spattered hat and spurs — drives his pickup along a rural highway, pointing out all the repairs where smuggling vehicles plowed through his fences.

"A lot of times they come and hit these gates," he says, motioning to a mangled metal gate. "You can see it's been knocked down a bunch."

In its 130 years of existence, the Jones Ranch has weathered hurricanes and droughts, fever ticks and screwworms, and lots of migrant traffic. But he says he's never seen so much human smuggling in the region. Jones estimates they've spent more than $30,000 just since January fixing dozens of breaks in their fences.

Undocumented migrants from Mexico and Central America trekking on foot and packed into vehicles are heading north through South Texas in ever greater numbers. Some are dying along the way in the harsh, arid terrain.


...and letting in the bad hombres

US President Joe Biden to 'propose hiking tax on rich'



US President Joe Biden is reportedly set to propose a tax hike on the wealthiest Americans.

The proposal would raise the top marginal rate and increase taxes on investment gains for the rich.

The tax rise would help pay for childcare and education, but would not be used for healthcare, according to reports.

The news triggered a selloff on Wall Street, with major indexes slipping during Thursday's trading session.


The White House said the American Family Plan, which Mr Biden is expected to lay out in full next week, will not affect any family earning less than $400,000 a year.

"His view is that that should be on the backs... of the wealthiest Americans who can afford it and corporations and businesses who can afford it," said White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki.

The proposal would increase the top marginal income tax rate to 39.6% from 37%, according to the New York Times and Bloomberg.

How the U.S. Vaccine Rollout Looks Right Now

Percentage of U.S. Population Vaccinated To Date

Initial Dose: 135M (40.6%)
Complete: 95.9M (28.9%)

Total Population: 332M

Nearly five months into the U.S. COVID-19 vaccine rollout, only 28.9% of Americans have received both doses of the two-shot Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna drugs or a single injection of the one-dose Johnson & Johnson version, which is back in circulation after a temporary pause. Since the first vaccine was given to the first patient on Dec. 14, the U.S. has delivered 290.7 million doses of the cutting-edge inoculations, of which 230.8 million (79.4%) have been administered.

I for one respect the dead too much to speak ill of that walking corpse.

All things considered he is doing a stellar job, most of his kind are stuck 6 feet under, not paraded on TV speaking gibberish.

Newt Gingrich's "traditional values"*


*Traditional Values may include, but are not limited to, cheating on your wife, and then serving her divorce papers while she's in hospital recovering from surgery, and also has Cancer.

or...

Impeaching a POTUS for having an affair, while cheating on your second wife, who you were cheating with on your first wife who had Cancer, with a staffer who becomes your third wife.

Tucker time!



Or how about last night's show? You know, where he suggested dips**ts should get involved in other people's parenting.


Pretty sure a cultists who believe that children are being trafficked en masse won't react stupidly or violently to strangers like you and your kids, just because you have your kids wearing masks during a pandemic, right?

Right?

The so called "moderate" conservative ... belonged to a society that openly apposed the Civil Rights movement.
