WASHINGTON TIMES: DAVID BOSSIE: Biden’s ambiguity versus Reagan’s moral clarity

When President Biden stated that “we do not ask any nation to choose between the United States or any other partner” in his recent speech before the U.N. General Assembly, I was startled. At a moment in history when the world needs moral clarity from the United States more than ever, Joe Biden chose weakness with the one world gang at the failing U.N.

It wasn’t so long ago that President Ronald Reagan was rallying the world around the belief that confronting the Soviet Union and their communist dictatorship was a clear-cut battle of good against evil. “We win, they lose,” Reagan used to say about his preferred outcome in the Cold War against Marxism-Leninism and the “evil empire” in Moscow. So, when Joe Biden tells the world he’s not asking for anyone to choose sides, he’s giving the likes of Russia, China, Iran and their allies a free pass and providing an open invitation for more bad behavior.

The American president is the singular world leader who must remind the world that sometimes it’s necessary to choose sides. The world should choose between sovereignty and Russian atrocities in Ukraine, the world should choose between human rights and Uyghur genocide in China, and the world should choose between democratic principles and women’s rights and the world’s leading state-sponsor of terrorism in Iran.

Mr. Biden’s bad habit of equivocation in the fights that matter paves the way for even more problems on the world stage. Just look at what’s happened to the United Nations. As long as Russia and China are allowed to call the shots as permanent members of the Security Council, can anyone say with certainty what the U.N. stands for today? Certainly not freedom, democracy and religious tolerance.

We live in a complex world where bad actors exist; there’s no escaping that fact.

President Reagan and President Donald Trump understood that the world is a safer and more prosperous place when America is out front leading by word and deed, not slipping back into the pack in the Obama-Biden tradition. Showing up as the tip of the spear on the brutally tough issues that others may cower from is the essence of American exceptionalism. We must once again embrace this daunting responsibility, not run from it.

The same can be said for free market economic principles and socialism. When President Barack Obama said he wanted to fundamentally transform our country, we now know exactly what he was talking about because Joe Biden is busy trying to finish the job.

History has taught us that everywhere socialism’s been attempted, it has failed miserably — and the end results won’t be any different in the United States. Limited government, capitalism, low taxes and regulations and individual liberty are what have given generations of people — both those born here and those who’ve come here legally from other countries — a shot at pursuing the American Dream. It’s up to us to keep that dream alive for future generations.

The Green New Deal, student loan forgiveness, explosive inflation, out-of-control spending, a bloated and broken central government, critical race theory, a more menacing IRS, and a politicized Justice Department all stand in stark contrast to the principles that have allowed our constitutional republic to thrive over the past 233 years. It’s clear that 2022 has become the year in which a choice has to be made between right and wrong.

Is it right to ignore a $31 trillion national debt in the name of climate change? Is it right to hire 87,000 new IRS agents to monitor small businesses? Is it right to open our border to crime and drugs? Is it right to demonize police and end cash bail? Is it right to forgive debts when others worked overtime to pay in full? Is it right to raid the home of future political opponents? This is all wrong in the United States of America, and it’s time to end it.

Let’s not regret failing to take action when it mattered most. A coalition of freedom-loving Americans from all walks of life must band together right now to stop the precipitous slide to socialism that we’re in the midst of under the Biden-Harris regime. A Republican majority in Congress in 2022 will set the stage for a Republican president in 2024 who will seek to restore American greatness at home and abroad.

President Reagan was right when he said freedom is “never more than one generation away from extinction.” Let’s not lose it on our watch.

FOX BUSINESS: US back to ‘Jimmy Carter economic policies’ as inflation rages, David Bossie says

During his appearance on "Varney & Co." Thursday, Citizens United President David Bossie sounded the alarm on the inflation woes plaguing Americans, arguing the country is back to "Jimmy Carter economic policies" due to Biden's agenda. 

DAVID BOSSIE: We're going to see high, high unemployment. We're going to see interest rates for a very long time go up. And that's the pain that Powell was talking about, or we're going to see this incredible recession. And I think we're going to see a little bit of both. We're back to Jimmy Carter economic policies.

We're back to Jimmy Carter in numbers. And this is going to be a long time, we're going to see this for several years to come. And if we don't get it corrected this November, you know, with the with a policy change in the House of Representatives, we're going to be in this for a very, very long time.

WASHINGTON TIMES: DAVID BOSSIE: Biden’s expensive malaise is here to stay

Make no mistake about it, the 2022 midterm elections are about the abysmal state of our economy and will serve as a referendum on Joe Biden’s costly left-wing policies that were forced into place as America was pulling out of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Now, with less than 50 days until Election Day, President Joe Biden and congressional Democrats are trying to diminish their failures by any means necessary - with the help of their allies in the biased mainstream media of course. But one core question remains on everyone’s mind: Why has everything gotten so expensive? Look no further than the radical Democrats in the White House and on Capitol Hill who’ve been behaving like drunken sailors with your hard-earned tax dollars for the past two years.

As our economy was on the verge of overheating and hurtling toward a once unimaginable $31 trillion national debt, Mr. Biden chose to abuse power. Along with Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, this president chose to enact nearly $5 trillion in new federal spending when our economy could least afford it. As a result, inflation is at nearly a 40-year high - an 8.3% increase from this time last year. Mr. Biden’s insistence that inflation has only gone up “an inch” is tone deaf and an insult to hardworking families struggling to get by.

It’s not hard to see that things are far from alright in Joe Biden’s America. In an attempt to rein in the inflation crisis before the rapidly approaching election, the Federal Reserve Board is expected to raise interest rates once again. The effect of these rate hikes will increase unemployment, stifle economic growth and pave the way for an economic recession that many believe we’re already grappling with. The American people must never forget the lie that is Biden’s Inflation Reduction Act. The truth is that this falsely labeled legislation hasn’t lowered inflation and never will. It amounts to little more than the latest socialist giveaway brought to you by the irresponsible leftists who are currently calling the shots in Washington. Every Democrat politician responsible for this new law must be voted out of office in November. Mr. Biden’s misleading line that ten million “new jobs” have been created on his watch is one of the biggest whoppers coming out of a White House that finds itself in full desperation mode. In March and April of 2020, America lost nearly 22 million jobs due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Since then, roughly 22 million jobs have come back - more than half of which were recovered during President Donald Trump’s term.

So, the jobs that Mr. Biden is now taking credit for aren’t new or of his making - they simply reflect our country digging out from under the pandemic. In reality, job creation would be much more robust had Biden just left President Donald Trump’s pro-growth economic policies in place and sat on his hands. Mr. Biden’s big government green agenda has caused massive uncertainty across the board. It doesn’t take an economist to understand what trillions in wasteful spending, tax hikes, and the specter of 87,000 new IRS agents will do to an already hurting economy.

Recent headlines like “The Fed is now expected to keep raising rates then hold them there,” are a direct contradiction to Mr. Biden’s disingenuous statement on 60 Minutes that he’s hoping for a “soft landing” for our country economically. As reported in The Wall Street Journal, Fed Chairman Jerome Powell - who has predicted economic pain for American families and businesses - is at odds with Mr. Biden on this question as well: “Without explicitly predicting a recession, officials have made clear their willingness to tolerate one. Mr. Powell has stopped talking about a so-called soft landing, in which the Fed slows growth enough to bring down inflation without causing a recession, except when asked.”

The Biden team is now caught between a rock and a hard place because they enacted the far left’s big spending wish list when they should have proceeded with caution. Democrats ignored the inflation warnings instead of taking appropriate action and now we’re all paying the price. The inept Joe Biden has managed to create a scenario in which the American people must now look forward to either more explosive inflation or a prolonged economic recession. It looks like Biden’s malaise is here to stay.

There’s only one way to solve our nation’s economic ills and that is to remove the Biden-Pelosi-Schumer triumvirate from power. These hopelessly out-of-touch politicians will never admit they were wrong and change direction, so we need new leadership and innovative ideas to get America back on track. Creating hope, growth and opportunity for all isn’t rocket science. It requires fiscal discipline, low taxes and fewer regulations, and getting big government off the backs of job creators and entrepreneurs.

This abhorrent “new normal” that Mr. Biden and the radical Democrats in Congress want us to get used to must not be allowed to take root. The American people deserve an economic playing field where they’re able to prosper, safe neighborhoods where police are respected, a secure border that combats fentanyl, and a first-class education for their children. On these all-important issues, the left has no answers. Vote Republican in November.

FOX NEWS: DAVID BOSSIE: What's at stake for Republicans, Democrats in midterms now that primary election season is over

The six-month 2022 primary election slog finally comes to a close Tuesday in what promises to be the most expensive and consequential non-presidential election in American history. 

What began in Texas back in March and wraps up in New Hampshire this week and sets the stage for an epic 55-day sprint to Election Day that will be like no other midterm campaign we’ve ever witnessed.

What’s at stake is control of both Houses of Congress and dozens of pivotal gubernatorial and state attorneys general posts. But setting aside all the money, all the noise, and all the political gamesmanship for a moment, it all comes down to one simple question: are you better off today than you were two years ago?

In New Hampshire’s primary elections, the final piece of the puzzle in this year’s handful of competitive U.S. Senate races will be decided. President Joe Biden’s ally in the U.S. Senate incumbent Democrat Maggie Hassan will be running against either retired Army General Don Bolduc or State Senator Chuck Morse in the general election.

The race in New Hampshire represents one of the top four pick-up opportunities for Republicans in their quest to win back control of the Senate, which is currently deadlocked at 50 - 50. Left-wing Vice President Kamala Harris currently possesses the tie-breaking vote.

Sen. Hassan has used her vote to make the disastrous Biden-Harris agenda a reality. Because of Hassan’s votes in favor of Biden’s falsely labeled, inflation-causing trillion dollar spending bills, American families are feeling stress just to get by in the midst of an economic recession -- a recession that might have been avoided if Sen. Hassan did the right thing.

Hassan’s irresponsible votes have cemented her status as an endangered politician; she’s polling well below 50 percent in a potential general election match-up versus either Bolduc or Morse. Many believe that control of the U.S. Senate could come down to what voters in the "Live Free or Die" state decide.

The primary elections for U.S. House in both of New Hampshire’s congressional districts are also key races in the grand scheme of things. Both seats are currently held by tone-deaf liberal Democrats and are listed as "toss-ups" that may well be part of the equation that allows House Republicans to regain the majority. Speaker Pelosi and the radical Democrats are defending a miniscule five seat majority, so the oft-used phrase "every seat counts" doesn’t do this year’s political situation justice.

Recent headlines such as, "N.H. poll: Biden's favorability in the state is at an all-time low," are proving to be a massive drag on incumbent Democrats trying to stay above water in the critical campaigns that will decide who controls Congress in 2023. The Democrat’s "Biden problem" is hardly just a New Hampshire concern; it’s a factor in battleground states with Senate, House, and gubernatorial contests up for grabs in every corner of the country.

At the end of the day, President Biden’s radical left-wing policies and harsh rhetoric toward half of our citizens have made Americans more divisive and less hopeful about the future. And perhaps most importantly, with his unhinged spending habits, tax increases, socialist loan forgiveness programs, and army of new IRS agents, the president has created an environment of economic uncertainty for families and job creators at the worst possible time.

When the next Consumer Price Index report comes out this week, maybe we’ll find out how much "pain" -- in the words of Fed Chairman Jerome Powell -- is in store for American households and businesses.

Democrats Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, and Chuck Schumer are out of touch career politicians who’ve been in Washington a combined 120 years. That means their priorities don’t match the priorities of everyday Americans.

Under the complete control of the Biden-Pelosi-Schumer triumvirate, our borders are wide open to criminals and fentanyl; our neighborhoods are far less safe; our public schools have been transformed into incubators for wokeism; and hardworking Americans are struggling mightily to make ends meet.

After seeing all that’s transpired over the past two years, the American people can end this catastrophic Democrat abuse of power once and for all.

They must give the Biden administration a much-needed check and balance by voting for their Republican candidate for U.S. Senate and U.S. House come this November.

WASHINGTON TIMES: DAVID BOSSIE: Senate is within Republican reach

Summer has come to an end and the traditional general election season is now in full swing for the enormously consequential 2022 midterm races for the U.S. Senate and U.S. House of Representatives.  The future of our country and the question of whether America will remain a vibrant constitutional republic or continue the Biden-induced slide to socialism is on the ballot.  

The party in power historically loses seats in a president’s first midterm election, and this year appears to be no exception. From the outset, President Joe Biden’s radical left-wing policy agenda has caused America to veer badly off track. Due to the extraordinarily high cost of living, high gas prices, high crime, open borders, irresponsible federal spending, and with the country more divided than ever, only 42% of the American people approve of Mr. Biden’s job performance compared to 55% who disapprove.

To make matters worse, an eye-popping 70% currently believe that America is on the wrong track under the leadership of Mr. Biden and total Democrat control of Congress. With inflation close to a four-decade high, illegal immigrants and deadly fentanyl flooding across our border, a skyrocketing $30 trillion national debt, and China eating our lunch on the world’s stage, you have to wonder who the 23% are who believe things are going okay in Joe Biden’s America.

Taking all of this into consideration, it’s expected that Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats will be swept from power in the U.S. House in January 2023. With only a razor-thin five-seat majority, there simply isn’t enough time for House Democrats to plug all the holes in the dam. The damage has been done and it’s a problem of their own making; the American people voted for what they thought was moderation but got radical socialism instead.

On the Senate side, things are much less clear. For starters, the upper chamber is deadlocked at 50 – 50 and there are only a handful of competitive races. And while the landscape favors Democrats - who are only defending 14 seats compared to 21 seats for the GOP - Senate control remains a toss-up with only 60 days to go until Election Day.

There’s been some talk recently about the supposed lack of strength among the GOP nominees for Senate in some of the critical races around the county. Now, I’ve been handicapping Republican congressional candidates for too many election cycles to mention and believe that this flawed narrative being spun by the biased mainstream media is greatly exaggerated. So now that we’re in September, it’s the perfect time for a reset.

One very important post-Labor Day election indicator is whether an incumbent is polling under 50%. In the states that comprise the top four pickup opportunities for Republicans - Arizona, Georgia, Nevada, and New Hampshire - the incumbent Democratic senator is under 50% in all four races.

In Nevada, liberal incumbent Catherine Cortez Masto is averaging just 46% against former state Attorney General and highly electable GOP nominee Adam Laxalt. Similarly in Georgia, incumbent leftist Sen. Raphael Warnock is also polling at 46% against Republican Herschel Walker, who has actually jumped into the lead according to some recent public polling.

In Arizona, first-term incumbent Democrat and former astronaut Sen. Mark Kelly - once thought unbeatable - is averaging under 50% versus first-time candidate Blake Masters, who is still introducing himself to voters after the highly competitive and bruising August 2 primary. And in New Hampshire, Biden ally Democrat Senator Maggie Hassan is stuck at 45% regardless of which Republican candidate emerges from the upcoming primary on September 13. This can only be interpreted as good news for the GOP.

Being in the majority is always better than being in the minority, but for the majority party in a 50 - 50 Senate, there are many pitfalls as well. For example, in order to pass any item in Mr. Biden’s radical tone-deaf agenda, all 50 Democrats - even the most vulnerable - must vote “yes” regardless of how bad the legislation may be. For this reason, Sens. Cortez Masto, Warnock, Kelly, and Hassan, are all tied to their horrible votes in favor of the failed Biden agenda. All the inflation-causing, out-of-control spending bills, the economy-killing socialist climate change measures, 87,000 more IRS agents to audit the middle class - you name it.

But these endangered Democrat senators also have to answer for the votes they didn’t take. Why haven’t they moved legislation to secure the border, address the spike in violent crime, or unleash America’s vast domestic energy resources to lower gas prices? It’s a dereliction of duty, plain and simple.

Of the four close Senate seats Republicans are defending, Sen. Ron Johnson of Wisconsin is the only incumbent running for re-election. While Mr. Johnson is polling under 50% at the moment, there’s ample reason to be optimistic. In his race for re-election six years ago, the final public polling average had Sen. Johnson losing 47 - 44, but at the end of the day, he won 50 - 47. And perhaps most importantly, many voters have yet to find out that his radical left-wing opponent Mandela Barnes has proudly supported defunding police, abolishing ICE, and cashless bail for criminals. These positions are wildly out of step with a majority of Wisconsinites.

The same goes for John Fetterman, the leftist Democrat nominee for Senate in Pennsylvania. Mr. Fetterman endorsed socialist Bernie Sanders for president in 2016 and brags that he agrees with him on “virtually every issue.” For instance, Mr. Fetterman wants to ban fracking - which would destroy Pennsylvania’s economy - and specializes in being weak on law and order issues like releasing dangerous criminals from prison. Mr. Fetterman is a candidate of the far left and is hardly a good fit for Pennsylvania, the nation’s quintessential swing state. Once the socialist Fetterman is introduced to more voters, it will become abundantly clear that Republican nominee Dr. Mehmet Oz, a political outsider who isn’t beholden to any special interests, is the far superior choice. No wonder Mr. Fetterman hasn’t debated Dr. Oz yet.

Nov. 8 is going to be a good night for Republicans, the only question is how good. And to those who are itching to make dire predictions about GOP prospects for capturing the U.S. Senate, I say not so fast.

FOX NEWS: DAVID BOSSIE: Liberal media downplay Biden's many failures to exaggerate Democrat election chances

The biased mainstream media are in overdrive, once again interfering with the rapidly approaching 2022 midterm elections. A veritable onslaught of curiously similar headlines such as "Democrats see the once unthinkable: A narrow path to keeping the House" and "Democrats’ midterm prospects perk up as Biden finally hits his stride" are all designed to change the political narrative and make people think that America under the leadership of President Joe Biden and total Democrat control of Congress isn’t so bad.  

The precipitous slide to socialism requires a robust effort by the left-wing establishment to make every-day Americans comfortable with the alarming "new normal" that’s settling in around us — high crime, open borders, high cost of living, out-of-control spending — and that’s what we’re seeing unfold right before our eyes. So, with less than 70 days to go until Election Day, it’s high time for a reality check.

On the same day Biden told us that "the economy is looking good," his own Fed Chairman Jerome Powell said that "while higher interest rates, slower growth, and softer labor market conditions will bring down inflation, they will also bring some pain to households and businesses." This is code for "buckle up, folks." This breathtaking contradiction from the two primary leaders who make our economic decisions should tell you all you need to know. Things are not OK in Biden’s America.

In the wake of the unprecedented raid of former President Donald Trump’s home that was ordered by Biden’s hand-picked, politicized attorney general on August 8 — along with the insane media frenzy that’s followed — it’s almost easy to forget that we’re in the midst of an economic recession that was first reported on July 28. If you’re a Democrat, you must be feeling pretty blessed to be the beneficiary of such wonderful timing. The White House’s insistence that they knew nothing of the FBI’s search of Mar-a-Lago — with yet another assist from the mainstream media for their lack of skepticism — simply doesn’t pass the smell test.

The liberal media also want the rest of us to feel better about gas prices "dropping" to $3.85 per gallon on average even though it cost just $2.39 for a gallon of gas when Trump left office just 19 months ago. They’re also working to obscure America’s $30 trillion national debt, the Dow Jones being down more than 3,000 points over the past year, and the fact that Biden and the Democrats have wasted $3.8 trillion on big government programming like the ridiculously branded Inflation Reduction Act, just to have inflation remain at nearly a 40-year high. Government planners are undoubtedly colluding with their allies in the corporate media as we speak about how to spin the next Consumer Price Index report that’s coming down the pike on September 13.

When Trump supporters criticize Biden — legitimately — for all of the above, he smears 74 million of us as "semi-fascists." Most unfortunately, America has become a far-more divided place under Biden because of rhetoric just like this. When you consider that unifying the country was one of Biden’s central campaign pledges, the mainstream media have completely dropped the ball for not aggressively calling the president out on this stunning broken promise. This stark "about face" in tone amounts to an enormous missed opportunity that could have been the most important part of this president’s legacy. Instead, Biden’s decision to "go low" is hurting the health of the union at the worst possible time. Democrats must pay a heavy price at the ballot box for spinning the lie that they were the adults in the room who would lower the temperature.

But Biden and the Democrats are on the hook for far more than that. They must be removed from power for the defund police movement that brought us violent crime in our streets, the subsequent police shortages, and their cashless bail disaster. Democrats must also be held accountable for the open-border policy they’re carrying out and everything that’s come along with it. We must never overlook the record number of illegal border crossings, the deadly fentanyl that’s killing our kids, or the unacceptable human trafficking that’s occurring on Biden’s watch. But it doesn’t end there. Republicans and independents must also turn out in record numbers to vote against school closings, attacks on parents, putting teacher unions before children, and critical race theory.

While we’re working overtime reading all the misleading headlines, there are some important facts to keep in mind. The final average generic congressional ballot going into the 2020 election for U.S. House showed a +7 Democrat advantage. However, on Election Day House Republicans picked up 14 seats. This year, generic ballot polling currently has the GOP with a one-point advantage. So, an 8-point swing in the generic congressional ballot test could translate into a disaster for Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s radical House Democrats.

At the end of the day, it’s safe to say that the highly misleading "declining GOP prospects" narrative currently being spun is greatly exaggerated. However, the corrupt mainstream media are going to do their part to boost the Democrats with hundreds of millions of dollars in corporate in-kind contributions to help defeat Republicans between now and November. And that, folks, is election interference by the biased liberal media.
