Joe Biden will be our next President. If he’s not up to the job or fades out, Kamala will step in as our new President. Either way, they claim this election is a “mandate”— on COVID-19, racial justice, gun control, climate change, restoring Obamacare, phasing out fossil fuels, strengthening labor unions, securing “environmental justice,” and a smorgasbord of Democrat regulatory proposals.
Of course, they won no such “mandate,” since this election was a nail-biting, close election right down to the wire. Trump voters occupy just about half the country. So, how does Biden’s win become a mandate? We shall see.
First thing, Biden will try to force through a national mask mandate, which would require everyone to wear masks whenever and wherever they go — outdoors and indoors.
His Administration, however, will not be able to slam-dunk their agenda. They will get major push back from half of America… and perhaps former Biden voters who failed to pay attention to what Biden, Harris, and the Democrats were actually proposing.
Meanwhile, California gives us an eloquent sample of how an overzealous Democratic government can force even family holidays and get-togethers, into a regulatory straitjacket.
The following Thanksgiving and Christmas mandates are taken from the California Department of Public Health website:
- Gatherings that include more than 3 households are prohibited.
- A gathering of no more than three households is permitted in a public park.
- For any gatherings permitted under this guidance, the space must be large enough so that everyone at a gathering can maintain at least a 6-foot physical distance from others.
- Seating must provide at least 6 feet of distance (in all directions).
- People at gatherings may remove their face coverings briefly to eat or drink as long as they stay at least 6 feet away from everyone outside their own household.
- Gatherings should be two hours or less.
- All people who are singing or chanting should wear a face covering at all times while singing or chanting.
- Instrumental music is allowed as long as the musicians maintain at least 6-foot physical distancing.
Yet, there was some good news from California (once considered a “bellwether” state for the nation):
Voters in that Democrat majority state turned down the most “progressive” (leftist) ballot questions. One was to reinstate racial and sex-related preferences. In other words, reinstate affirmative action. Voters rejected it.
Another good piece of news was the defeat of the ballot question that would have mandated independent contractors (like Uber drivers, for instance) to be considered employees, and taxed and regulated accordingly. It was also rejected by the voters in that “liberal” state.
Nationally, other good news was the reelection of Mitch McConnell, the Republican Senate leader, and Lindsey Graham, another key Republican. Also, moderate Republican Maine Senator, Susan Collins, successfully fought off a stiff challenge.
Meanwhile, the House of Representatives lost Democratic seats and gained Republican Representatives, thus weakening Nancy Pelosi’s shaky hold on power.
Now, what about the current controversy about voter fraud and irregularity?
Unfortunately, President Trump’s attempt to tie up the process with lawsuits will not work. Even his staunchest supporters are beginning to realize that Trump will have to accept reality — he lost (whether from underhanded Democrat shenanigans or simply not getting enough votes in the right places).
Trump, unfortunately, will not concede until all his legal options are spent.
Republicans and Independents, the best thing you can do is fight like hell against the so called “mandates” of a Biden Administration. If Biden self-destructs, Kamala Harris waits in the wings to take over. If Biden finds reserves of personal power, Kamala will still be a powerful, activist Vice President.
Then, it will be time to redouble efforts to stop the Biden/Harris Administration attempts at gun confiscating and never-ending tax proposals, allegedly against the rich, but effectively on all of us.
So, Dear Readers of the Matrix Gazette, the good news is that we will have plenty to talk, write, and fight about as we plan for the inevitable Biden presidency.
The Presidential Election of 2020 is over; but the battle for “the soul of America” has just begun.
Fasten your seatbelts…
