From Taiwan to Martha’s Vineyard – Top 3 Takeaways – September 20th, 2022 

From Taiwan to Martha’s Vineyard – Top 3 Takeaways – September 20th, 2022 

  1. World War 3? Unpacking President Biden’s 60 Minutes interview from Sunday night is the equivalent of opening the smallest box under the Christmas tree only to realize once you open it that it’s the best gift. I mean, on one hand you hear Joe Biden is doing 60 Minutes and your initial thought is probably that you have laundry you need to get caught up on. If you think about it a little longer you realize, hey, this means he’s actually being interviewed by someone, which his handlers never allow. That alone has possibilities for it to provide more entertainment value than the laundry. And yes, even in a pretaped and heavily edited environment he delivered. That is if you, like me, view Joe Biden as a parody of an actual president and have become inclined to use humor as a coping mechanism for his policy. So, about that... On the question of inflation, he said... Well, first of all, let's put this in perspective. Inflation rate month to month was just-- just an inch, hardly at all. When pressed by Scott Pelley, which to his credit did a credible job with the interview, he said. But it was 8.2% or-- 8.2% before. I mean, it's not-- you're ac-- we act-- make it sound like all of a sudden, "My god, it went to 8.2%." It's been – To which, in an effort to help the president complete a sentence - Pelley said it’s the highest inflation rate in 40 years. Or the new economic measure of an inch as the case maybe. We should have absolute confidence he has command of the issue. And then Pelley pressed the President on the economy and prospects for a recession to which he said: We're growing entire new industries. Six hundred and ninety-five, I think it is, or eighty-five thousand new manufacturing jobs just since I've become president in United States. Right, so we’re avoiding a recession with entire new industries, six hundred and ninety-five or eight-five thousand manufacturing jobs. Got it. You can really tell with his economic acumen and general prowess how he was able to play a pivotal role in negotiating the end of the rail strike that never happened and ending the crisis that was being manufactured in the news media. I can tell you my economic concerns are no more. But then in a moment of cognitive clarity the President answered the question as to if the pandemic was over. 
  2. The pandemic is over. We still have a problem with COVID. We're still doing a lotta work on it. It's-- but the pandemic is over. if you notice, no one's wearing masks. Everybody seems to be in pretty good shape. And so I think it's changing. And I think this is a perfect example of it. Now, notice two things here. First, he managed to complete multiple sentences in a row coherently, and he’s generally making sense. Of course, this has sent many of his leftist allies attempting to keep the pandemic alive scrambling, and with over 300 Americans still dying daily due to the ‘vid not everyone is in good shape, but the point is well taken. Of course, if people not wearing masks and a few hundred people dying a day due to the virus means we’re not in a pandemic, then you might say it was pretty much over in Florida two years ago and the only reason it continued elsewhere was by choice. Moving along to foreign policy... President Biden was asked if Ukraine was winning the war. His answer (they) are not losing a war. And then there was Taiwan. When Pelley asked if U.S. Forces would defend the island he said: Yes, if in fact there was an unprecedented attack. To which Pelley followed up, So unlike Ukraine, to be clear, sir, U.S. Forces, U.S. men and women would defend Taiwan in the event of a Chinese invasion? To which the president simply answered yes. Now of course the White House has once again backtracked on his stance since the interview which does continue to call in question who is actually calling the shots, but overall, in the span of 60 Minutes, we learned that inflation’s only an inch, the economy is fixed with an indeterminate number of new industries and manufacturing jobs, the pandemic has been over since we took our masks off, Ukraine’s not winning the war but they’re not losing it either and we’re on the brink of World War III (depending on who gets to make the decisions for Biden that day). More interesting than laundry! 
  3. 18.5. That’s how many more times Governor DeSantis can create a “humanitarian crisis” in Martha’s Vineyard... That is if he chooses, based up the amount of money allocated by the state legislature and the $615,000 In cost attributed to the initial voyage. As Florida’s CFO Jimmy Patronis told me, he authorized the initial payment and fully expects there will be more to come. If the left managed to lose their minds with just one trip of 48 illegals to the willy woke whiteland, what might 19 more trips with 925 additional illegals do? There just might be a chance Governor DeSantis could end the border crisis from Florida with flights of illegals to Martha’s. Though my personal preference would be 900 more to Martha’s with 25 sent to Biden’s beach. DeSantis did say we’d send them to Delaware and if there are promises made, those promises should be kept. There’s more than enough illegal immigration love to go around. And enough money allocated in Florida to strategically send them across the country.
