Joe Biden’s Revised COVID Plan is Actually Just Trump’s Plan
Joe Biden believes that forcing everyone in the country to wear a facemask is a better approach than letting local authorities to decide for themselves. He thinks instituting the same rules in coronavirus plagued Los Angeles as in Wyoming where there were less than 50 cases reported in the entire state makes sense. In fact, his running mate Kamala Harris said last month that a nationwide facemask requirement would become one of their administration’s first orders of business if she and the plagiarizer-in-chief won the election.
Lately, however, Joe has had to walk that dopey idea back. Someone reminded him that we have a federal republic, not the dictatorship of Joe. He had to drop pledge number 7 on his coronavirus battle plan, which reads “Implement mask mandates nationwide…” They would have done that by using the federal government’s economic and legal leverage to coerce every state governor and local authorities to “make that mandatory in their state.”
When confronted with the more reasonable approach by President Trump to recognize that governors know what’s best for their state, Joe responded, “Well, I hope you could trust the governors.”
Then Joe backpedaled more, “But here’s the deal, the federal government — there’s a constitutional issue whether federal government could issue such a mandate. I don’t think constitutionally they could, so I wouldn’t issue a mandate.”
Which is exactly what President Trump has not done.
What President Trump has already done in his battle against coronavirus is the first 6 points of the Joe Biden and Kamala Harris “plan to beat COVID-19 and get our country back on track.” Except for the parts where the Democrats politicize and promise to “fix” what is either unbroken or is under way to keep the fight going, their plan is a carbon copy of what the Trump Administration is already doing.
What the mainstream press is not doing is their job. They are pretending that Biden can save us all while trumpeting Joe’s claim that our President is flailing around with no plan at all.
Joe’s plan, like everything he has ever promoted, supported, and claimed as his own, follows the long history of plagiarism. It is a “serious problem” pointed out in a Newsweek opinion piece by Boris Epshteyn. He cites several examples, and it doesn’t take a deep-thinking pundit to see striking similarities to President Trump’s already successful policies.
Take, for example, Biden’s “Made in America” ideas. Biden wants increased government purchases from U.S. producers. Well, duh! Isn’t that President Trump used to peel off the blue-collar workers from Hillary’s “we’ll cancel your energy jobs so you can become computer programmers” policy?
President Trump has the measure of Joe Biden, who has since slipped from plagiarist to leftwing ventriloquist dummy. Said the President, “He plagiarized from me, but he could never pull it off…He likes plagiarizing…But he said the right things because he’s copying what I’ve done, but the difference is he can’t do it.”
So, what does all that copy-catting show? Where is the clear and independent vision for the country?
Joe Biden doesn’t like being labeled as a Trojan horse and an empty vessel. But that is what he is. And this is precisely why Bernie Sanders and his crazy leftwing supporters believe he might be able to successfully pose as a normal, mainstream candidate. They only have to hold on until they can install him as their crazy uncle upstairs in the White House. Then they will retire him to the White House Rose Garden, giving him executive orders stuff to sign that will move our country to the Venezuelan and Cuban model of their demented socialist utopia.
