Today is Friday the 13th and it’s looking bleak for President Biden and Vice President Harris, along with the failures of Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg, who has failed in the same manner as he ruined South Bend, Indiana politics when he was its mayor.
Biden’s and Harris’ failures come as the price of gasoline, diesel fuel, and natural gas for heating and air conditioning are hitting record high levels. In addition, the open border with Mexico, disastrous handling of the Afghanistan withdrawal, and utter catastrophe with the U.S. economy in general has already opened the criticism for Biden as the worst president in history. Finally, while other shortages are starting to become reality, particularly in smaller, urban stores, the big issue is the availability of baby formula. While the press has called the development puzzling, two different major manufacturers of baby formula have been shut down by the FDA, ostensibly for releasing formulas that have resulted in three infant deaths in the past year. This is the equivalent of shutting down the entire airline industry because one plane made an emergency landing because of a minor issue. But is there something more sinister afoot?
Interestingly, baby formula is not restricted for women with children enrolled with the WIC program, though in practice stores can limit sales as needed. But what is even more interesting is that the federal government has stockpiled a nearly-unlimited amount of baby formula strictly for illegal aliens crossing the border. Most mothers or adults with babies are given as much baby formula as they want, not just what they need, while American babies are restricted. Keep in mind that it would not take too much effort to allow the baby formula manufacturers from operating at full strength again, but apparently there seems to be more to this then can be seen.
And this is where Pete Buttigieg is making his colossal error. With transportation snafus causing huge problems at the ports, we have an impending food shortage that will need action, mainly from releasing regulations allowing the industries to operate. Unfortunately, Buttigieg is doubling down on the restrictions, including contemplating rationing of diesel fuel, which will severely curtail the already-depleted trucking industry. Now with potentially millions of lives of babies at stake, we really need a solution, and Buttigieg needs to get a move-on.
But of course, President Biden blames “Ultra MAGA” or anyone outside of the Democratic Party, so as not to take the blame. He said he would never pass the buck but this doesn’t cover the fact that HIS administration is just a failure in every aspect. I believe this administration to be the worse ever since our Founding Fathers codified the Constitution, outlining the office of the presidency.
