You’d be hard-pressed to find any aspect of life the party of Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, Nancy Pelosi, and Chuck Schumer has not destroyed during the last 500 days. With nothing positive to offer, they deserve to be crushed.
Amid inflation, regulation, supply-chain crises, and the Democrats’ anti-business mentality, all Americans are losing. This is proven each day by the middle class fleeing liberal-run failures California, Illinois, New Jersey, and New York for conservative-led successes like Florida, Tennessee, Texas, and Utah.
Inflation will cost the average U.S. household $5,200 more this year for the same type and amount of goods.
Much is due to Democrats’ war on energy. Biden’s immediate eradication of the Keystone XL pipeline, restrictions on federal land and water exploration, and ignominious efforts to block the oil industry’s access to money, have curtailed progress and production. Not surprisingly, gasoline has nearly doubled from $2.37 for a gallon of regular at Biden’s inaugural to record highs each day, now nearly $5. Diesel fuel has soared to an all-time high of more than $5.50 per gallon. The rich, urban left may applaud, but working Americans are going bankrupt.

Think former President Donald Trump wrought chaos?
Democrats have unleashed unparalleled tumult at the US- Mexico border, where roughly 2.5 million illegal aliens arrived from Feb. 1 last year to April 1, 2022. During Trump’s final 14 months in office, that number was one-fourth as large.
The southern border has also become a sieve to ship fentanyl across it into our interior. Fentanyl can be blamed for last year’s record 108,000 fatal drug overdoses. Fentanyl has become the top cause of death for U.S. adults under 45.
Here is the moment where @TxDPS started finding the drug bundles ditched in the brush after tracking the smugglers for hours. We ended up finding the 5 drug smugglers hiding in a nearby bush moments later. They had 250lbs of drugs, unknown what it is until lab gets it. @FoxNews pic.twitter.com/zZYESGy3qb

When they aren’t closing schools and destroying kids’ lives, woke Marxists push critical race theory, a deceitful method to harangue all white people as privileged oppressors and blacks as helpless victims.
The Soviet-style rush to ban dissent won’t relent. It was most recently embodied by Biden’s Orwellian “Disinformation Governance Board,” now on pause; but the same corporations that buried Hunter Biden‘s fiasco and spread COVID misinformation for two years, still want to terminate podcasts, censor cable news, and Twitter accounts.
Democrats gleefully embraced political violence and defunded the police in numerous cities and states. When cops are able to arrest criminals, rogue district attorneys in Chicago, New York, Philadelphia, Los Angeles and San Francisco, refuse to prosecute them. They’ve also allowed looting and smash-and-grab robberies to become commonplace, hurting everyday citizens.
Criminals also thrive as radical Democrats halt cash bail. A man who shot nine people at a South Carolina mall last month, for example, was quickly released on a $25,000 bond. The only time Democrats notice violence is for political gain.
Black Lives Matter and Antifa hoodlums toppled statues, torched police precincts, and looted various buildings, while Kamala Harris, then a U.S. senator, raised money to release them from jail.
Minneapolis, and dozes of other cities run by noxious mayors and leftwing city councils endured record-breaking homicides in 2021.
Speaking of killing, the Democrat Party’s worship of abortion remains unhinged. As progressives reach into their eugenics past to reject bills that would protect babies who survive abortions, it would be even worse if not for a brave red state Democrat. According to today’s Democrats, mothers can kill their babies until the moment of birth, and if you disagree, you’re racist.
After a white collar criminal leaked Justice Samuel Alito’s draft opinion foreshadowing a reversal of Roe v. Wade decision, Jacobins lobbed a Molotov cocktail into a pro-life organization’s office.

Ill-informed pro-abortion extremists protested in front of court’s conservative jurists’ homes, and we now brace for more violent tantrums this summer.
So in the fall, a comeuppance is not just welcome; it’s required.
