Biden playing more games with end of COVID emergency
As you can imagine, political maneuvering plays a great deal into what happens here in Washington, D.C. And, as a result, that maneuvering can impact our nation and the lives of the middle class and low wage workers.
That’s what is now taking place with the announcement to end the designation of COVID-19 as a current public health emergency. You may have thought that COVID had already been declared no longer a public health emergency. You can be forgiven for thinking it was, as President Biden and his administration has stated that it’s over and then not over countless times. They’ve always done this to fuel their own political agenda that is present in the moment, to increase government control and to validate their Leftist ideologies.
Last year, the Biden administration argued that the emergency is over as a way of justifying the end of Title 42. Title 42 is the public health authority that was instated by President Trump. It allows border officials to expel migrants without allowing them to apply for asylum in order to limit the spread of COVID. Only a few months later, President Biden stated that the health emergency was not over in order to justify his completely unlawful, irresponsible, massive forgiveness of student loans.
So, now that Republicans are back in control of the U.S. House of Representatives, they recently announced they are soon planning to pass bills that will declare the end of this public health emergency. President Biden, sensing the end to one of his favorite political tools to use in order to do whatever he wants, immediately announced that he will declare the end of the health emergency in May.
Why? In order to hopefully buy himself a few more months to play games with the one thing that’s impacted our lives more than anything else for the last three years.
But it’s not just that.
On February 28th, the Supreme Court is set to hear two cases regarding Biden’s student loan forgiveness, one of which is a coalition of states pushing back against Biden’s reckless and unlawful action. This month, a case involving immigration and Title 42 will also be argued before the Supreme Court. Biden wants to massively forgive student loans, despite the current state of inflation and the present issue of our debt limit.
Biden wants to make matters at our border increasingly worse, all while we had the highest record in history of migrant encounters at the border just two months ago. And Biden wants to continue to play politics with COVID, hoping most people will continue to not notice or care. I guess the one piece of good news is that COVID will stop being used as a tool by the Left after May. And even if it’s not, which there’s no telling with this president, I am at least hopeful in that we now have a Republican House that will push back and hold him accountable.
And not only that, but a Supreme Court that will hopefully do the same as well. It’s times like these and presidents like this that serve as a reminder towards the founding ideals of our nation. No matter what unexpected emergencies we face and blatant actions a president takes, the checks and balances system always offers a chance for a better future to prevail.

Biden losing support of Black Americans, identity politics is to blame
In exit polls from the 2020 U.S. presidential elections, 87% of Black American voters reported voting for Joe Biden. Today, however, Biden’s overwhelming endorsement by Black voters is beginning to erode. Recently, as many as 20% of Black voters told pollsters that they would consider voting for Donald Trump.

Pro-life Republicans cannot give up the fight after Ohio loss
