As things collapsed for leftist Hollywood at the end of “Team America World Police,” puppet-actor Alex Baldwin began to scream left-wing buzzwords to reignite support for a sinking ship.
“Global warming! And corporate America!” Baldwin cried (then in 2004), failing to inspire a rebound in confidence among a friendly audience. The situation feels peculiarly similar to President Joe Biden announcing a series of initiatives in the name of social justice while his popularity sinks to its lowest levels of his first term.
In the backdrop of record-breaking immigration, soaring grocery bills, gas prices at seven-year highs on track to reach $5 a gallon, an energy crisis on the horizon this winter, a persistent labor shortage fed by excessive handouts, runaway inflation, and severe supply chain disruptions, the Biden administration announced its first “racial equity counselor” at the Department of Treasury.
Janis Bowdler, a former executive at JPMorgan Chase who was in charge of the firm’s efforts to get capital to entrepreneurs if they’re not white, will now lead federal initiatives “to advance racial equity” at the Treasury Department, a coded phrase for racist programs branded as progress.
“The American economy has historically not worked fairly for communities of color,” Department Secretary Janet Yellen said in a statement. “Treasury must play a central role in ensuring that as our economy recovers from the pandemic, it recovers in a way that addresses the inequalities that existed long before anyone was infected with COVID-19.”
The announcement came three days after President Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris launched a gender equity initiative as the administration’s approval ratings reached their lowest point in Real Clear Politics’ aggregate at 42.3 percent. Above 52 percent, more than half the country, disapprove of Biden’s handling of his first nine months in office.
President Biden and I released the first ever National Gender Strategy. This is our vision for the future of our nation—one that is bold in strategy and one that this moment calls for.https://t.co/89T8lDmkIM

“President Biden and Vice President Harris believe that advancing gender equity and equality is fundamental to every individual’s economic security, safety, health, and ability to exercise their most basic rights,” read a White House statement. “Ensuring that all people, regardless of gender, have the opportunity to realize their full potential is, therefore, both a moral and strategic imperative.”
The pair’s Twitter accounts continue to regurgitate the same wokistanian talking points in an attempt to resurrect their sinking poll numbers.
In just nine months, we have nominated more Black women to the federal circuit courts and more public defenders to the bench than any administration in all of American history.
And we’re just getting started.

We all have a role to play, and the President and I are clear on ours: We are and we must be unwavering in this fight. We must use our voice to call out any effort to obstruct justice. And to call for justice everywhere. pic.twitter.com/79Q7L1ymqL

Biden engaged in repeat gaslighting that Republicans are in a fight to strip minority Americans of rights at the ballot box through voter integrity laws after Democrats erased and ignored them last year.
“Jim Crow is alive and well in the 21st century,” Biden wrote.
The struggle for our democracy is no longer just about who gets to vote. It’s about who counts the votes—and whether they should count at all.

The new initiatives as signals of commitment to the president’s base reek of desperation from an administration struggling to contain multiple crises engineered by its own leftist policies. Will Biden come out on top? Or will he carry Democrats to the slaughterhouse in the midterms? History points to the latter.
