So many predictions from Trump supporters for years, not many came true, not a single important one.
The vast majority of Leftists/Marxists/Statists do not understand that we conservatives are not Trump Supporters. We are however, America and American Liberty supporters. Trump just happens to be carrying the banner in the way we wish, but it could be anyone as long as they believe in what we do.
Tim Blair: Joe Biden could not be a more incompetent President
President Joe Biden is the exact opposite of his predecessor – he’s friendly to media, writes nice things on Twitter and is completely and utterly incompetent, writes Tim Blair.

Here’s an entertaining experiment for you to conduct on any Trump-hating friends.
Just ask them what they most despised about the 45th President of the United States.
Chances are they won’t mention any failed policy outcomes, for the simple reason that there are not a lot of failed Trump policy outcomes from which to choose.
African-American, Hispanic-American and Asian-American unemployment all fell to record lows during Donald Trump’s presidency.
As well, Trump achieved energy independence for the US and his Operation Warp Speed massively accelerated the development of coronavirus vaccines.
So none of that will be spoken of.

Instead, your Trump-hating mates will more likely complain about issues peripheral to policy: Trump’s tweets, his abrasive personality, his post-election complaints and so on.
British journalist Tom Holland recently invited political scientist and anti-Trumper Francis Fukuyama to consider Trump’s awfulness. Typically, the author of The End of History immediately went to a no-policy zone:
Holland: “You say that Trump turned out to be even worse than you had anticipated?”
Fukuyama: “Well, I think his worst sin was contesting the legitimacy of last year’s election.”
The worst thing Trump did, then, didn’t even happen during his presidency.
Fukuyama also believes China’s dictatorship is less dysfunctional than US democracy and expressed optimism about America’s foreign policy returning to “a sort of status quo ante”.
You bet it has, Francis. Under President Joe Biden, US foreign policy is just as it was under Presidents Obama and Clinton.
Except even worse. Just last month, Biden confidently told a reporter that a Taliban takeover of Afghanistan was not inevitable following the withdrawal of US troops.
Donald Trump’s faults as president fell outside the lines of policy. Picture: AFP
“The Taliban is not the North Vietnamese army,” Biden – a senator during the fall of Saigon and vice president during deadly attacks on US diplomatic facilities in Benghazi, Libya – said.
“They’re not remotely comparable in terms of capability. There’s going to be no circumstance where you see people being lifted off the roof of the embassy of the United States from Afghanistan.“
Last week we saw people being lifted off the roof of the embassy of the United States from Afghanistan.
We also saw hundreds of desperate Afghans swarming around a departing US Air Force C-17, and at least two people falling from that aircraft as it gained altitude.
The US Air Force later confirmed human remains were found inside the C-17’s wheel well when it landed in Qatar.
As victorious Taliban goons celebrated at a Kabul fun park – they especially enjoyed the dodgem cars – Biden briefly interrupted his Camp David vacation to accept all responsibility for the calamitous troop withdrawal and also to blame everybody else.
“President Biden’s statement on Saturday washing his hands of Afghanistan deserves to go down as one of the most shameful in history by a Commander in Chief at such a moment of American retreat,” the Wall Street Journal’s editorial board responded.
They were too gentle.
Then followed Biden’s bizarre interview with US ABC host (and former Clinton staffer) George Stephanopoulos.
“That was four days ago, five days ago!” Biden snapped when asked about those terrifying airport scenes in Kabul.
Those scenes actually emerged just 72 hours earlier, but you have to factor in a large margin of error when Biden is talking.
The President also claimed, contrary to his statements in July, that he’d always expected disaster in Kabul.
“The idea that somehow, there’s a way to have gotten out without chaos ensuing, I don’t know how that happens,” he said.
Dear God. US columnist Becket Adams’s reaction: “Biden’s ‘chaos was unavoidable’ line is terrible not because it means he lied when he promised the exact opposite.
“It’s terrible because it means he went on vacation fully expecting all hell to break loose in a country containing some 10,000-40,000 US nationals.”
Joe Biden is a worse President than Donald Trump.
By contrast with Trump, Biden’s policy failures are legion.
“I can say quite clearly: Don’t come over,“ Biden told prospective illegal immigrants in March.
“Don’t leave your town or city or community.”
Nobody listened to him. CNN now reports: “In July, US Customs and Border Protection apprehended 212,672 people, up from June and amid some of the hottest summer weeks – when arrests usually dip …
“July marks the highest monthly number of migrants detained at the US-Mexico border in two decades.”
Inflation is also up. US consumer price increases last month hit a 13-year high.
The national average for a gallon of gas stood at $3.186 on Tuesday, up roughly $1 over the last year.
It is reasonable to assume, given Trump conducted every element of his presidency very differently to Biden, that a withdrawal from Afghanistan under the Trump administration would have been very different to Biden’s bungled attempt.

It is reasonable as well to assume, given Trump’s policy execution was more successful than anything attempted thus far by his replacement, that a Trump withdrawal would not have been such a total debacle.
But at least Joe Biden isn’t writing any mean tweets. So there’s that.
However, you cut it, the simple fact remains. President Donald Trump is 100,000% way better than Usurper-in-Chief Joe Biden as US President. That includes the times that Joe Biden is just taking a nap too. Joe Biden would fail even as a dog catcher. He would end up catching squirrels and think they are one and the same as dogs.
Yeah, Joe Biden could be a more incompetent President -- he could be Donald Trump.
A bad joke, a shameful disgrace, an ongoing disaster which is bringing the country to it's knees, and we're only 8 months in. IOW, the radical left plan is coming together. The real power brokers over at Soros central are absolutely ecstatic.
