I can believe it only because it is so insane

See the additional details here: Biden says small business will receive no aid unless they’re owned by minorities, women.

Of course, women are already in a majority and after four years of Biden/Harris white men will be in a minority too. I bet that won’t count.

Of course, white-male-owned large businesses – say Facebook, Twitter and Amazon – will do really well for themselves, not to mention banks and financial institutions.

    Zimbabwe will soon have a competitor for the most damaging policies for an economy .Zim a basket case however it it made Mugabe very rich. Just like Venezuela .
    Trump is setting Biden up for a clash with China , Kimmy has threatened to bring USA to its knees All those unhappy Trump voters will no longer sit at home having their rights taken from them and unlike what happened in Germany , they have guns and ammunition

    If you listen he is a pure racist and a sexist.
    Women, and anyone who is not a white man don’t know how to go to the bank or contact a lawyer.
    They therefore need help because they’re useless.

  9. Watch Your Back

    Why is anyone surprised?

    White men have been under attack now for 12 years. Not just businesses but their careers.

    Men are walking away from women, families, universities and society, such as it is.

    If I had a son, I’d advise him not to get married, live with a woman or bother applying to university or through the HR feminazis for jobs.

    Men should go back to inventing stuff and making a living for themselves.

    Meanwhile, they’re going to load up actually profitable small and medium sized businesses that don’t need a government handout with extra labor, energy and regulatory costs.

    Fear not the blokes that own businesses can just claim to be women with 1/1032th native American ancestry, just like what’s-her-name, oh yes, oh dear it’s gone again, what’s-her-name it is.

    Definitely avoid the big US universities these days, learning a trade is probably better and then self-educate on the Internet to enhance from there. Things like math and coding are largely self-taught, and there are heaps of great resources: books, websites, videos, etc.

    As for finding a good woman … I doubt that’s ever been an easy task but the penalties for mistakes are higher now. Judge of character, look for hints that she is exploitative … there must be some reference guides available. Ask Uncle Gunner if in doubt.

    Funny, they don’t want or need white men right until they need them to wire the house, fix the clogged drains, fight in the many brushfire wars they insist on starting and a half dozen dirty and dangerous jobs I could name. Reminds me of the feminist debate about “do we need men anymore.” The yes side raised plumbing, electricity and the builders who built the very venue they were debating in. Don’t think the point got through.

    Why would Trump supporters back the republican party in 2024. The party has made it pretty clear it wants nothing to do with Trump. The increase in Trumps support wasn’t people interested in the Republican party, I can’t see them turning out for what is dished up in 2024. I think it is likely that the Dems will be in for at least 8 years.

  27. John Brumble

    Roger, all the Democrats will do is increase the mail-in ballots. There will never be another conservative/ small government president ever, ever again. The next Republican president (if there is one) will be further to the left than Biden or Hillary ever were.

  28. Bazinga

    Trump might run as an independent next time, and steal a chunk of the Rep vote.

  29. Captain Katzenjammer

    It’s a pity countries don’t have a quorum for general elections. Imagine if an election was declared void if fewer than 50% of the eligible population cast a vote. For the US about a third never vote so it would only need a bit over half the Republican voters to refusing to vote. Does their constitution have any clauses where the populace can cause a moribund election?

  32. Lee

    The Democrats weren’t too concerned during the months of rioting, the burning down, looting and destroying of a great many Black, Latino, and Asian businesses last year.
    In fact, many of the disgusting Dem hypocrites (and MSM) were urging the anarchy on.

    They had a perfectly good landslide win this election but they hated their own standard bearer more than the other side did. Stick a fork in the, they are already done.

    Can you really imagine that 75 million voters will come out to vote for Republicans in 2022 let alone 2024? Politics is a contract, we give you votes you do something for us. Republican voters got nothing from their party for 10 years now, last November was their last chance and they blew it.

    Asian small business works OK, but the others are largely grievance, vanity and drug dealing.

    Asians are already becoming defacto white in education because they do too well. They had the perfect grift before when they could claim minority status benefits while also being generally highly intelligent and motivated. There was something I heard a few weeks ago that now even Asian females have higher average incomes than white men in the USA.

  40. Rob

    Wasn’t it crystal clear where the Democrats would take the good ol US of A before the election?
    And if the American people actually did vote as the tally sheets allege, aren’t they getting what they wanted?

    As for finding a good woman … I doubt that’s ever been an easy task but the penalties for mistakes are higher now. Judge of character, look for hints that she is exploitative … there must be some reference guides available.

    The trend has been away from women who have been contaminated by the feminist culture for the last twenty years.
    Feminism, princess culture, and the Family Court have quite successfully priced western women out of the market.
    The chances of getting a woman from our society who wants to have a stable marriage and a family are virtually nil.
    So why is it so?
    Well, mainly because there are no disincentives for behaving badly. In fact there are incentives for doing so. The courts will reward you with (virtual) sole custody of the kids, a great nest egg from either sale or inheriting the ‘family’ home and the support of the entire bureaucracy who will coach you in ways to screw the last cent out of the poor bastard while all her friends agree what a prick he was for leaving when he found out you were rooting half the neighborhood.

  45. “Funny, they don’t want or need white men right until they need them to wire the house, fix the clogged drains, fight in the many brushfire wars they insist on starting and a half dozen dirty and dangerous jobs I could name.”

    So who is going to pay the taxes, start up the businesses?
    Perhaps they’re not needed any more – after all, the middle classes and the self employed are the class enemies.

    The inhibitions noted above notwithstanding, many white men have wives, and half of the children of the family are girls. Harming the man harms these women too. A point that may not be lost on them.

    Maybe, (just maybe), there is space on the political spectrum for a third force balance of power holding third force. For Australia, or at least NSW, it might be a Mark Latham party that abandons it’s ties to Pauline.

    Dementia Joe does not have an original thought in him. His talking points are drafted and provided to him by the Democrat handlers he needs and he dutifully regurgitates whatever he is told to.
    His party have a solid plan to move him out when they think the time is right because they have all the dirt on him and his son in the hands of their enablers in the FBI. Wait a few months and the reasons for the old fool to step down “to avoid any perception of wrongdoing” will be leaked carefully so he has time to take the money and run. No impeachment for him!

    When the GFC occurred, congress funneled money out to select private business. This list was then destroyed and there is no record of it. Many of the businesses were newly created just to get the free $$$ and were owned by family and friends of congress people.

    The same modus operandi was repeated during the Crimean/Ukraine crisis, where billions was funneled to Ukraine companies, who suddenly employed and contracted to a whole bunch of Americans linked to congress (Bidens son being the most widely known one – but there are hundreds if not thousands).

    Once dems have power – COVID will be the next huge money grab. In fact it is already occurring in most states. The PPP program is being easily exploited – you can get a loan from government, shuffle some books, and end up getting the loan forgiven. You can do this on newly created companies that didn’t exist prior to COVID. Hundreds of millions is being funneled into the hands of those with the right connections to get the loans through. All you really do is have to create the equivalent of an ABN and you can get some free $$$.

    The result of this will of course be what the left most scream about: Just like how under Obama the top20% got richer than ever, while the lower 20% dropped ( which only reversed under Trump), we will now return to the pigs at the trough.

  56. BalancedObservation2

    Who is Joe Biden trying to kid?

    In comparatively recent times – before Donald Trump – neither the Democrats nor the Republicans looked after the constituencies Biden is now saying he’ll help.

    Middle America, lower income Americans and black Americans benefited from the Trump years. They’d been forgotten for years. Trump tapped into support from middle and lower income America whom Barack Obama had forgotten. Although a black American coming from the non conservative side of politics , Obama had effectively become a cosy and fully signed up member of the political establishment. Big business did comparatively far better under his administration than the groups who were erroneously regarded as his constituency.

    It’s one of the key reasons how Trump was able to win. Don’t forget with all the sad troubles now he did win! It was an incredibly amazing feat considering he lacked the full support of the Republican Party and had no long background in the political system as most successful contenders have had in the past.

    Before Covid struck, Trump got unemployment right down – even lower than it was in Australia which is quite unusual. And he increased growth as he’d promised he’d do.

    It was rather quaint how unlike the Democrats who had two terms, Trump who had one term delivered on most of his promises before Covid struck, and the real irony is that probably the main beneficiaries were those traditionally regarded as the Democrat constituency. For example under Trump unemployment among black Americans was the lowest it had ever been.

    When I was a subscriber to The Australian I was rarely a fan of Cameron Stewart’s articles on the US but one of them was brilliant. It was the one where he really got energetic and interviewed many potential individual voters before the election.

    To be sure it was purely anecdotal but what struck me was – despite the extremely poor polls for Trump – a large number were still fully committed to Trump because he’d actually done that rare thing in politics : he’d largely delivered on his promises.

    They’ve been articles here recently which have said Trump won’t have a legacy. I disagree. He will in many areas. This is one of them. Trump has raised the bar for the Democrats to deliver to middle and lower income America. They didn’t in Obama’s eight years. They’ll really pay if they don’t again – because Trump showed them it was possible.

  57. covid ate my homework

    The path to a Republican victory in the 2022 mid-term and the 2024 general elections will be for the focus to turn to local politics. As the left insist “all politics is local”. The base is energised and recently more and more Trump supporters have been running for local government and school boards which (as here) went uncontested. This is the path to breaking the stranglehold the left has with respect to “social change” and in a short time clear the Republican party of RINO’s. The RINO’s have flourished due to a lack of pressure from below.

    “Just like how under Obama the top20% got richer than ever, while the lower 20% dropped ( which only reversed under Trump), we will now return to the pigs at the trough. ”

    That part of your post is pretty insightful. The fact that Donald Trump helped improve the lot of large chunks of the so called traditional Democrat constituency is extremely significant.

    It’s part of the Trump legacy. Some articles here want to deny there’ll be any Trump legacy. What Trump did has really raised the bar for Joe Biden.

    I’m not so sure about other things you said. I’m not up with the evidence.

    However, I recall an even bigger example of what you’re saying and it refers to the monetary quantitative easing program under the Obama administration.

    I seem to recall a senior expert who was coopted to that task force saying how it largely favoured the big banks. It was in a long recorded interview by a reputable source. I’ll see if I can track a link down.

  59. covid ate my homework

    There’s no doubt that Biden is a despicable and duplicitous individual and I understand the hate from all here and I join with you on that matter. However, the more I see of him the more I’m beginning to wonder if he’s as addled as he appears.

    Consider the alternative. Biden knows the Demonrats plans so what better way to get yourself elected than to play along and continue to confirm the lefts expectations. As despised as he is by all those not of the left it must be appreciated that he has been haunting the hallways of power for many decades and despite his mountains of gaffes and nonsense he’s still there and soon he’ll be POTUS. The first 30 days will either confirm my suspicions or leave me a fool, let’s see.

    P.S. We’ve all seen how easy it is to remove those inconveniently around you, see Pence/Sessions torpedoing of Mike Flynn (the greatest loss Trump suffered), no reason why knee pads Harris couldn’t suffer a similar fate because she has more enemies amongst the DNC than the GOP. Let’s see.

    It’s possible that the Republicans may get another President in the future, but he’ll be of the Romney / McCain mould, i.e., another globalist deep-stater. In fact, it’s highly likely that they will elect another Republican of this type just to give the appearance of democracy.

    However, there will never be another patriotic America-first President, Trump was the last of that type.

    And they’ll ‘compensate’ for the damage the Democrat’s marxist-militias did during their race riots and bail out the unfunded public service liabilities of Illinois and other long term Democrat run states. They’ll claim they have a ‘mandate’ to print another $3 trillion.

    I found the references to quantitative easing.

    The quantitative easing program executed under the Obama Administration helped the big end of town – not the little people or middle America.

    Joe Biden was there for the execution of the program which casts a shadow over his claim to help the small end of town.

    Andrew Huszar was responsible for executing the centerpiece program of the Federal Reserve’s first plunge into quantitative easing under the Obama administration. To be fair the concept was probably developed in the last months of the Bush administration, however it was executed under the Obama administration. (But either way that point has no bearing on my point anyway).

    Quantitative easing turned out to be a bonanza for the big banks and for Wall Street. Main Street America came off second best or worse. Yet as Andrew Huszar points out it was spun by the feds as tool for helping Main Street America.

    Huszar wrote an opinion piece on it for the Wall Street Journal on Nov 11, 2013, entitled : “Confessions of a Quantitative Easer”.

    It’s well worth reading. It backs up what your general point was.

    Donald Trump was the first president for a long time to help middle America and low income Americans.

    Which makes what’s happened at the election and since all the more distressing.

    And casts a shadow over Joe Biden’s claim to help the small end of town.

    Incidentally that interview I referred to was by the online McAlvany Weekly Commentary and carries the same title : Andrew Huszar: Confessions of a quantitative easer.

    It involves a lot more detail and some very interesting more complex points. It runs for around thirty minutes. However it may be fairly heavy going for non economists.

    Re going to university vs more focussed training:

    Husband one and two and me make a highly academic family background for seventeen year old grandson, and also on his mother’s side there is the same pressure, as his grandpa there was a lawyer and politician. Given his various parental problems and living situation during the HSC however he could probably still get admitted to Arts at a quality university on HSC results. However, like Sinc’s daughter, his eye was caught by a private Academy, offering industry skills. I was OK with that at first, then I read Sinc’s thread re his daughter’s choices and the commentary on that; then I was got to by husband number one, who said give the boy some alternatives within universities (still the gold standard for husband number one), so I wrote out a list of pros and cons for various pathways for the boy, not really favoring the Academy but not dissing it too much either. Given the state of the world today a few hard industry skills and contacts may do more for employability than simply ‘a degree’. Even so, I pointed strongly to the transferability and credit exchanges available in a university degree vs some variable ‘Academy’.

    I’ve applied for fee-help for that Academy, grandma, he tells me on the weekend. He made his own decision and went ahead with it. Good on you, I say. May you do well and prosper there.

    My two kids with ‘da Hairy one’ went straight down the university u/g and p/g line to the glittering prizes of employment security, one flying in the public sector, the other in the corporate world. The current seventeen year old admires them greatly, his uncle and aunt, and their high-flying spouses too, but is wise enough to say that way is not his way.

    Hairy’s brother’s children of the same age as ours, in the UK, have had much more checkered career paths, shifting in and out of various u/g degrees and both of them ending up working in fields far removed from their formal studies.

    No easy answers to it all.
