President Joe Biden's African travel ban went into effect Monday. Biden's actions here directly contradict what he said when former President Donald Trump instituted similar travel bans to stop the spread of the coronavirus. In fact, they lay bare an underlying insincerity about Biden's entire handling of the pandemic.

When Trump did this exact same thing, Biden stoked the flames of racial hatred to get elected. Now, nearly a full year into his first term, Biden is the dog that caught the car. He duped 81 million people into voting for him, and he has no clue what he is doing. Biden voters owe the country an apology. They are responsible for our mess — and every bit the mess that the approval ratings suggest it is. From foreign policy to immigration to crime to inflation to gas prices, there is absolutely nothing going better right now than on Jan. 19, 2020.

And incredibly, despite the vaccinations that were developed rapidly under Trump, Biden cannot even claim to have made progress with the pandemic.

Portrayed as a unifier on the campaign, Biden is as divisive as his predecessor, if not more so. It's one thing to believe honestly that Trump's travel bans were discriminating based on race. It is another to deceive the public by demonizing and criticizing Trump as a racist, only to turn around and do exactly the same thing.

Many cited Trump's pandemic actions as a reason they voted for Biden, who campaigned on "having a plan" to tackle the coronavirus pandemic. But more people have died from COVID-19 under Biden than under Trump, even with Biden having the benefit of hindsight that Trump lacked in early 2020.

It's not that Biden did anything particularly wrong that led to an excess number of deaths. It's just that his criticism of Trump was always hollow political theater. He never had a plan to do better; he just lied about that part. So, if you are unhappy with the death toll during 2021, blame Biden voters for being suckers.

Gas prices under Biden have skyrocketed. This is partly due to Biden's energy strategy of making the United States more reliant on foreign oil and less energy-independent. Even now, Biden continues to heap greater financial burdens upon the companies that wish to drill on federal land, which again translates to that much less oil exploration and that much higher prices. Blame the Biden voter.

Consider inflation. After a long run-up in median household income under Trump, Biden's inflation has negated those gains. And although it is unfair to lay the blame for inflation solely on Biden, his decisions have contributed to it, and he is advocating a spending bill that would make it even worse. Several high-profile Obama economic advisers have lambasted Biden for his decision-making and the resulting inflation. Some of them even advised Biden during his campaign — now, they warn that his policies will result in "the highest inflation in more than half a century." Again, if you're unhappy with this, blame the Biden voter.

Biden already had a long track record of screw-ups and of dishonesty — his plagiarism is just one manifestation of this. But a lot of people chose to vote for him anyway. They were hoodwinked by his false promises. The road to recovery begins with apologies to those you have wronged, and Biden voters owe the country an apology.

Mornin' Jim ... I don't apologize for neither the Canadians nor the Brits I vote for ... damn if I'll apologize for a Yankee who I don't vote for. As to the rest, the author is clearly wasting his time which begs the question, why are you?

Meh, back to SCOTUS 'live'. I'm hoping to be shocked by an intelligent argument.

Yet you felt the need to comment. Talk about wasting time.

Also wasting time were those Democrats, media talking heads, and even some on NT who have demanded those that voted for Trump apologize. Some even went further and demanded that those that voted for Trump demand his impeachment and imprisonment. All those hypocrites can go pound sand if they voted for the biggest hot mess of a President ever in Joe Biden.

Biden doing the same thing he bagged on Trump for doing, is not going to go unnoticed.

And vice versa.

In the real world away from the anonymity of this forum we all interact with and deal with real life people that are very much like people here regarding the various issues of the day and we get along with them just fine, be it at work or at a social setting or a school board meeting or a city council meeting or a community concert or whatever.  It would be less than adult like to think that if we all sat a big table for a meal that we couldn’t be civil to each other and refrain from saying something to a real persons face that might get said in anger here.  I guess my faith in the inner good of most humanity is higher than some.

People who fantasize about the imaginary qualities of their candidates shouldnt vote either. 

First of all the idea that the ONLY drawback to Trump is his "personality" is absurd. The Washington Post concluded that Trump lied to or misled the American people 30,000 times WHILE HE WAS IN OFFICE. The only mitigating thing associated with that fact is that they counted repeats as separate lies for the purpose of the count. (For example Trump said, about 75 times, that the whistleblower had lied about his phone call with Ukrainian president Zelensky. (The truth is the whistleblower account of the phone call was very accurate). 

Lying incessantly to the American people is not a "personality" issue. It is an indicator of unfitness for office. 

As far as all the great things Trump did for the country,  that is a conservative belief, not a bi partisan belief. There is no polling that showed widespread agreement with Trump policies across the board.  In any case, he was and is completely unfit to hold elected office.

150K is a stretch, but I do recall 40-50K+ depending on the day!

Biden has recently managed to do his own fair share of lying without the help of his puppet masters. Brief, most recent list:

  • Jill almost died in a house fire
  • He "drove" an 18-wheeler rig
  • He "drove" a school bus
  • He called Kamala "President"
  • He called Fauci "President"
  • He was "arrested" in South Africa
  • He was playing golf in PA when he heard the gunshots at an Amish schoolhouse
  • His helicopter was forced down due to Al Qaeda gunfire 

I'm still waiting for him to reveal his miracle strategy to cure cancer.

With regards to the travel bans he did the right thing but way too late; and it won't do any good because he has the wide open southern border where illegals from all over the world are crossing daily. They are not tested for Covid (unless they show symptoms); and they are not required to be vaccinated. The illegals are transported all over the US at taxpayer expense after being held at overcrowded detention centers where Covid rapidly spreads.

This is a good example of how toxic partisan politics can be. What one party thinks is a good idea today will be a bad idea a year from now, depending on who is doing it. For example, Democrats used to be in favor of controlling illegal immigration  because it took jobs from Americans.

Limiting travel to control a dangerous, highly contagious disease is just good common sense.

Now, how effective it will actually be - or has previously been in the case of Covid - is an open question. Even Biden, in an address he made on the campaign trail , finally conceded that it could slow the spread. I think it’s clear to everybody now that the thing moves too fast for us to completely stop it that way, but there may be some value in slowing it down.

Travel bans are pointless, virus is already here. With the speed at which people can travel the globe today, by the time we have detected a new variant it is already in multiple different countries.

What all of this highlights is that Joe Biden is gradually becoming Donald Trump.  Trump's main flaws were lack of ability to communicate and a penchant for grandstanding.  But Trump's policies weren't based on whims; the policies were based upon practicality.  Trump's obvious flaws only allowed political opportunists to obstruct pragmatic governing.

Biden is being forced to adopt the same practical approach that Trump followed.  The real world doesn't operate on theories, as Biden is finally learning after 50 years in government.

Travel bans are the pragmatic approach to slow variants coming into the United States.  Instead of waiting until its too late for scientific experts to declare a travel ban is warranted, the practical approach is to impose travel bans and wait for the scientific experts to show why the ban is not needed.
