By Timothy H. Lee
Thursday, August 26 2021
The casualties of Joe Biden’s incompetent Afghanistan debacle extend far beyond that nation’s borders.   Just seven months into his presidency, Biden’s ability to lead has evaporated both at home and overseas.  In terms of public trust, his approval rating has collapsed to 41% in a matter of days, and continues its downward trajectory.   Current and former leaders of allied nations, meanwhile, openly label his decisionmaking “shameful” and “imbecilic.”   Among friend and foe alike, who can consider him credible going…

"According to the left-of-center Tax Policy Center, Biden's tax plan will raise taxes on 75% of middle-class families next year and 95% of families over the long term. Biden's policies are already slowing the economy. In August, the U.S. added just 235,000 jobs, a far cry from estimates that 720,000 jobs would be created.
