Remember the old 1970s sitcom "Welcome Back, Kotter"? It aired on ABC from 1975 to 1979. The president of the United States throughout half that period was the infamous peanut-farmer-turned-worst-president-ever Jimmy Carter.
Perfect timing. Because 2021 is clearly the new 1977.
The new version of that sitcom is "Welcome Back, Carter. Except Add Dementia." It stars our current president, Joe "Basement" Biden, as today's hapless, pathetic, destructive Jimmy Carter.
Basement Biden and Jimmy Carter are alike in so many ways it's almost surreal.
Both appeared to the naked eye as decent human beings. Both portrayed themselves as moderate Democrats. Both turned out to be stumbling, mumbling idiots with a desire to destroy America with a radical socialist/Marxist/communist agenda. Both embarrassed the office of the presidency while depressing the American people. Both embraced "America Last."
The differences are ...
Jimmy Carter meant well. His heart was in the right place. He was just a fool and a dupe. His delusional, fairy tale, half-cooked ideas ruined many lives. But it wasn't intentional. The poor man was just naive and dumb as a doorknob.
Joe Biden, on the other hand, is a puppet with dementia. It's clear he's not even the president. He's just the front man doing the bidding of evil people who want to destroy America and capitalism.
The amazing thing is Biden's done it all in just a little over 100 days. He's practically just set the Guinness World Record for fastest destruction of a great country.
Look around. America is a dumpster fire. Let us count the ways Biden has wrecked America from sea to shining sea and across the globe.
The borders are open, and immigrants pour in by the thousands per day. Many of them bring crime and disease. They bring bankruptcy and insolvency for America and our formerly great middle class. So far in fiscal 2021, we've managed to bring in the most tax money ever while still spending an unimaginable 90% more than we collected.
Then there's dreaded inflation. A massive wave of stagflation is clearly coming because of madman Biden's insane levels of spending. Just days ago, the Producer Price Index soared by the most ever. That's all before the trillions Biden wants to spend on infrastructure and the Green New Deal. Biden is turning America into a combination of Venezuela, Zimbabwe and the infamous Weimar Republic.
But wait, we're just getting started. We have hourslong gas lines and gas costing $7 per gallon in some parts of the country. Sound familiar? It's Jimmy Carter: Part Deux.
Then we have the massive increases Biden proposed for income taxes, corporate taxes, capital gains taxes, even estate taxes. Biden wants to destroy us with taxes from cradle to grave. This comes after the economic suffering of COVID-19. Biden will create a Great Depression.
And then there's the global dumpster fire. Biden's ineptness, naivete and obvious signs of dementia are inspiring all of America's enemies to attack our allies without fear of repercussion. Israel is under attack by the Palestinians. China's military aircraft are invading Taiwan's airspace. Russia is threatening a war with Ukraine. Iranian gunships are harassing U.S. Navy destroyers.
What's a madman with signs of dementia do to deflect from all these tragedies and disasters he's caused in only 100 days? Time to distract and deflect. It's time to bring out the WMDs — weapons of mass distraction.
That's why Biden and his Centers for Disease Control and Prevention suddenly just announced that vaccinated Americans no longer need to wear masks indoors or outdoors. Happy days are here again, with the wave of a magic wand.
Forget the tragedy unfolding around us. Forget the end of America. Forget the dumpster fire. Forget the signs of dementia. Biden will allow you to take your muzzle off.
But only days before, Biden, Dr. Anthony Fauci and the CDC announced that vaccinated Americans absolutely needed to keep wearing masks in certain scenarios, even outdoors. Fauci even reported we might keep wearing masks forever during flu season.
Then, suddenly, voila! No more masks outdoors or indoors. It's all "science," don't you see? It sure is. It's the science of Wag the Dog. It's the science of "Three-card Monty."
It's not science; it's voodoo. It changes minute by minute based on what Democrats and the media need to support the helpless, feeble, old man with signs of dementia.
Keep your eye on the ball. What matters is America, American exceptionalism, the American dream and capitalism. They're all hanging by a thread under Biden. This is a tragedy of epic proportions.
I'm sad to say ... we're watching "Welcome Back, Carter. Except Add Dementia."
