When I found out some weeks back that Andy Slavitt was being brought in by Joe Biden to be a top COVID advisor, all I could do was chuckle. This was a guy who has been consistently wrong for the entirety of the pandemic, including projecting over one million deaths. His Twitter feed presents itself as the ravings of lunatic, and his proclamations on things like lock downs and mask usage have been shown to be evidence free garbage.
Yet, Slavitt might not be the worst example of failing up in the Biden administration. There’s a new contender, and she’s taking things to an unprecedented level. It’s truly the worst of Washington on display.
The fact that this woman spells her name with a “z” should have been a clue something was off, but I digress. Suzan Levine has announced her elevation to the Biden administration from serving as Washington state’s Commissioner of Employment Security Department. As head of the ESD, her job was ostensibly to protect her state from fraud involving things like benefit payments. Instead, she lost $600 million to Nigerian scam artists. No, I’m not joking. That’s really a thing that happened.
After that was revealed, Levine attempted to cover her own backside by refusing an audit to figure out what the heck happened. Her agency has been embattled and under investigation ever since. She also oversaw long delays during the pandemic in getting people benefits.
Now, here comes the kicker. Levine and her husband gave $400,000 toward Biden’s election effort during the 2020 cycle. For her troubles, she’s going from losing hundreds of millions of dollars with her incompetence to doing the same job at the federal level. Brilliant, right?
For a corruptocrat like Biden, we should come to expect these hires.
Red States: Full Body Cam Video from Two of the Minneapolis Police Officers Undercuts Charges Filed By Minnesota AG Keith Ellison I felt from the beginning that Ellison overcharged in this case and this video is going to make it extremely difficult for Ellison to prevail. It also should have been released before the emotional reaction to the cell phone video that stirred the passions of the country and the mobs. What appears to bee clear is that Floyd was not compliant with the arresting officers. When you tie that to his drugged condition it just does not make for a second degree murder conviction.
Red States: Based on a book by investigative journalist Lee Smith , The Plot Against the President is a quality piece of storytelling, that moves fluidly and builds tension like any good suspense thriller. But it is not fiction; it was an intentional, and diabolical machination that occurred right underneath our noses. The documentary lays out “Russiagate” and all the actors: legacy media, government officials, and the Obama administration, who weaved this web of deceit. The film explains in extremely cogent fashion the hows and whys of the set up of General Michael Flynn, and how Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA22), former National Security Council official Kash Patel, and Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH4) unraveled and exposed the Deep State deception that trapped an innocent man, in an attempted coup de’état to unseat President Donald J. Trump. Jordan said in the documentary, “The only thing we got wrong, is that it was worse than we thought.” The most villainous evil was done to General Michael Fl
Michael Rubin: On his first day in office, President Biden canceled permits for the Keystone XL pipeline. Environmentalists and anti-fossil fuel activists should not have applauded his move. After all, Canada will not stop extracting oil from the tar sands of northern Alberta. Instead, it will simply export oil over existing pipelines or to the Pacific Ocean, where the damage from a potential spill would be harder to address. Biden’s cancellation cost jobs and pushes Canada toward greater economic cooperation with China. It also shakes confidence in U.S. business. Who would invest in the country if any future administration can simply renege on deals with the stroke of a pen? Especially, that is, when the investments involved here reach into the billions of dollars? Biden’s move was both political theater and an indulgence of his liberal base. But his hypocrisy was stunning even for a politician who has spent a half-century in Washington. Consider that while the Biden administration
