Two years Into Presidency, the Far Left controls Biden

Consider President Joe Biden, who, when asked hours after the midterm elections what he could do differently to raise his low approval numbers, replied, "Nothing."

As we hit the two-year mark of Biden's term, there are reasons for skepticism about his preposterous strategy; the most obvious is the surging hard Left.

The cultural Left runs the national Democrat Party and the White House. This venomous cabal holds views on immigration, policing, free speech, schools, race, and gender utterly antithetical to the median voter. They are an electoral liability.

The few remaining sane Democrats attempt to dissociate themselves from unpopular ideas such as defunding the police. Yet, hard Left voices are amplified daily by MSNBC and NPR and within cosmopolitan non-profits.

A weak Biden will bend to the will of radicals and do nothing about this problem.

For example, his administration prefers talking about gun control instead of jailing criminals. They characterize the backlash against woke curricula in schools as "hateful" bigotry. And when the southern border debacle that began when Biden took office finally elicited a response, even that tepid move provoked outrage from the open borders community.

Remember, despite lies from Mollie Hemingway and Laura Ingraham, the GOP "base" did turn out last fall.

Republicans won the overall popular vote by three points; Democrats lost non-college voters by 13 points; Hispanic support dropped 11 points, and black support declined a whopping 14 points.

There is no demand for leftism or Democrats' policies. There also is no great demand for Tucker Carlson's populism. Facts show without Donald Trump's handpicked losers, the GOP would easily control the U.S. Senate.

Before the midterms, voters expressed consternation that Democrats had little interest in crime, rampant homelessness, and the southern border fiasco.

Democrats hold double-digit disadvantages on immigration, reducing crime and the economy, and valuing hard work and patriotism. Their environmental lunacy also is anathema to most voters.

This is why Republicans crushed Democrats on crime in 2022, using the issue to flip several congressional seats in deep blue New York. Had Democrats held onto those, they probably keep the U.S. House. But the radical Left thinks crime is about "right-wing racism" rather than a life and death concern of voters.

In crime-ridden Washington, D.C., the insular city council — all Democrats — recently passed an illogical law over their...
