Joe Biden just made another promise he has no intention of keeping… and ‘official’ media is too busy carrying his water to call him on it.
Here is WaPo licking Biden’s boots while failing to ask the obvious question:
President Biden released a plan Monday that aims to reduce homelessness in the United States by 25 percent in the next two years.
The 100-plus-page plan, which officials said includes input from communities around the country and feedback from hundreds of unhoused people, comes as homelessness in the nation reaches crisis levels. New York’s mayor last week announced plans to force unhoused mentally ill people into treatment, while the mayor of Los Angeles has declared a state of emergency. — WaPo
Joe Biden’s plan blames (of course) systemic racism and inadequate government funding for the exploding homeless crisis.
Severely underfunded programs and inequitable access to quality education, health care (including treatment for mental health conditions and/or substance use disorders), and economic opportunity have led to an inadequate safety net. –WaPo
Here’s the problem with his plan of addressing the very real problem of homelessness.
The migrant homeless situation on the streets of El Paso has gotten worse as the encampments have grown in size since last week, all the while the status of Title 42 is still up in the air. The temps are expected to drop to the 30's tonight —> https://t.co/zDyeRFsnRm pic.twitter.com/cZwjhE0YQq

That plan is doomed to fail under his current policies.
Chuck Schumer gave the game away when he called for mass amnesty and citizenship while refusing to address the open border. People are crossing the border by the million because Democrats WANT it that way.
Biden is suing border states who have the audacity to put up barriers to slow down the influx if people illegally streaming into the country, and he has been ripping up every policy Trump ever put in place to secure the border.
Perverse incentives like that have real-world consequences. From the moment Biden had been declared the winner, caravans started swarming the border. Some of them even wore Biden campaign slogans.
They came by the millions, pretending to be ‘refugees’. Once they arrived in America, many have begun living as if that were true.
Biden trying to solve the homeless problem without closing the border first is like trying to fill a sieve by pouring water into it faster.
Success or failure isn’t just a question of how hard you try.
To borrow the language Kamala herself one used when she pretended to care about this issue — before you can solve the problem, (homelessness) you must first solve the root issue (massive influx of new people requiring someplace to live).
We’re anticipating something like 14,000 apprehensions a day if Title 42 drops, right?
Working backward from the rough official number of ‘at least’ 2 million apprehensions in the last fiscal year, we have somewhere between 5,000-6,000 apprehensions a day.
How do either of these numbers compare to historical norms?
Let’s go back to what Obama’s guy on the job had to say about the issue.:
“When I was in office at Kirstjen Nielsen’s job, at her desk, I’d get to work around 6:30 in the morning and there’d be my intelligence book, sitting on my desk,” Mr. Johnson told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” crew on Friday. “The PDB and also the apprehension numbers from the day before. And I’d look at them every morning — and my staff will tell you if it was under 1,000 apprehensions the day before that was a relatively good number. And if it was above 1,000 that was a relatively bad number and I was going to be in a bad mood the whole day.” — ClashDaily [Emphasis added]
It’s the same problem he has with the Jobs numbers or his inflation numbers.
It’s easy to brag you’ve added ‘x’ jobs or the economy. But reality requires a right-minus-wrong grading system. Are jobs added keeping up with the millions of new people who have gate-crashed the country?
Same principle applies to economic numbers.
If wages go up by a couple of percentage points but inflation goes up more than that, Joe doesn’t get to brag about those increases, because Bidenflation has the working class further behind than when they started.
No wonder the establishment is working so hard to destroy this guy:
Trump is living proof that their ideology leads to ruin, whereas his America First strategy actually improved lives and livelihoods throughout America, across all income categories, regardless of racial background.
The left would rather burn America down than admit that traditionalist Americans were right about … pretty much anything.
Psalms of War: Prayers That Literally Kick Ass is a collection, from the book of Psalms, regarding how David rolled in prayer. I bet you haven’t heard these read, prayed, or sung in church against our formidable enemies — and therein lies the Church’s problem. We’re not using the spiritual weapons God gave us to waylay the powers of darkness. It might be time to dust them off and offer ‘em up if you’re truly concerned about the state of Christ’s Church and of our nation.
Also included in this book, Psalms of War, are reproductions of the author’s original art from his Biblical Badass Series of oil paintings.
This is a great gift for the prayer warriors. Real. Raw. Relevant.
