The Biden Presidency

I did this for the Trump presidency, and to some extent the Obama presidency. Now the Biden presidency. 

This will be linked at the sidebar at the right. This will be for the archives, to track the next chapter.

The entire Biden presidency can be summed up in four words: Back to the Future. 

Obama will be running the show from the shadows. 

Expect more fireworks:

  • in the Mideast
    • Joe Biden will be starting his administration of with "no"troops in Iraq or Afghanistan; Trump will bring them home by January 15, 2021;
    • Biden can recall Valerie Jarrett to provide advice on the Mideast
  • Taiwan: this is China's best opportunity to "Hong Kong" Taiwan
  • North Korea: has had four years to work on its rockets; unlikely to let an opportunity like a Biden-Harris administration go to waste;

Expect lots of social engineering:

  • and it won't be all bad -- let's start with $50K student debt relief; is this any different than bailing out the airlines? or pre-packaged Bakken bankruptcies?

Monetary / fiscal policy:

  • back to Janet Yellen 

20/20 hindsight on Trump:

  • he could have and should have done more;


  1. And where is Valerie Jarrett.????don

    1. Valerie Jarrett is either making big bucks with Iranian lobbyists or on Hillary's staff. But she will give that all up to serve her country. Just not sure which country is hers.

  2. And wheres north Korea with all this Bruce? More fireworks ?

    1. Oh, yes, I was just getting started. I didn't want to overwhelm readers.

  3. Valerie Jarrett:
    Since leaving the White House, Jarrett has volunteered as a senior advisor to the Obama Foundation. In 2017 she was appointed to the board of directors of Ariel Investments, and joined the board of directors of 2U, Inc., Lyft, and the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. She is also the co-Chair of the United State of Women, Chair of the Board of When We All Vote, and a Senior Advisor to ATTN:. In January 2018 she became a distinguished senior fellow at the University of Chicago Law School. Wiki
    At least she's keeping busy ;-)

    1. I assume she is working behind the scenes on a lot of projects that are not publicized. For all I know she has a blog. LOL.
