Compassion is an important quality in politicians. But it can boomerang when grand goals produce unintended consequences. That's what's happening to Biden with the migrant surge at the border.
==========================================
That SOB doesn't have an ounce of compassion in him. I suppose that's the new line: "He was just too caring and wanted to help as quickly as possible."

Hogwash. He ignored the clearly effective Trump program, ignored the pleas of the Mexican president, ignored the advice of Border Patrol and ICE, ignored the pleas of dem politicians on the Border. It's not like he had no information and didn't know the consequences.

The illegal migrants are simply pawns to be deployed to hasten the chaos and destruction of the country.

Trump also had Project Warp Speed pay up front for vaccines from six different sources to have the vaccine ready once the safety testing was complete.
Modern was there first. Pfizer decided to forego payment for research (due to multiple government funding) and took a large per dose payment. Johnson & Johnson was 3rd in the US. Novavax appears about to be the 4th to be approved in the US.
So, as of this moment, three vaccines are approved and a 4th probably will be shortly. When they started, it was unknown if any of these vaccine would actually work. AstraZeneca was 3rd in Europe but is having clouting problems. The Sanofi vaccine and GSK booster wasn't potent enough, initially, but they are back in the hunt again. The Merck vaccine failed.

Grading the Trump administration's performance "has to take into account how other countries are doing," HuffPost's Jonathan Cohn wrote on Friday. "It turns out the U.S. is faring pretty well, relatively speaking. In fact, shots are getting into arms faster than in most of Western Europe, at least according to the available data."

"The crazy thing here is how much has gone right," insisted Michael Pratt, Operation Warp Speed's chief communications officer, on Thursday. "The vaccines were developed within a year. There are tens of millions of doses now available. More than 11 million people are reported as having the vaccine… [and] it's better than the data shows."

"The fact of the matter is it represented the best of American science and biotechnology, and it was the work of hundreds of thousands of people to get us into this position," said Kadlec, the health department's preparedness chief. "This is what America was made of."

Commie is as commie does.

Biden and his fellow Democrats hope to expand the definition of infrastructure beyond existing transportation architecture to include items aimed at tackling climate change and its effects, echoing the $2 trillion, 10-year “Build Back Better” proposal floated during his campaign.

That includes investments in electric vehicle charging stations, zero-emission buses and zero-carbon electricity generation by 2035, and directing dollars to minority neighborhoods and contractors, part of a pledge to increase racial equity.

In Vanity Fair, Cuomo’s biographer mentions the time that his subject was accused of sexual harassment. “HUD’s inspector general, Susan Gaffney, was a woman who dared to speak up, so she became a target,” he writes. Gaffney did indeed speak up and became a target. And The Contender followed the usual Cuomo line of treating her allegation of sexual harassment as absurd nonsense. The suggestion that Gaffney had gone over the edge goes unchallenged.

"To the astonishment of all in the Cuomo camp, Gaffney soon after filed a formal complaint against Andrew and most of his inner circle, accusing them of sexual harassment and discrimination," Shnayerson dismissively writes. "Exhibit A: the wink."

The real reason that the story is explosive isn’t just because twenty years ago, for the first time, Cuomo was accused of sexual harassment, it’s that Democrats vigorously backed Cuomo up.

At a Senate hearing in which Gaffney made her case, warning of Cuomo's campaign of dirty tricks, Senator Susan Collins and Senator Fred Thompson, both Republicans, were supportive. Meanwhile Senator Tom Lantos appeared to be cooperating with the Cuomo smear campaign.

Rep. Henry Waxman, aggressively defended Cuomo, accusing Gaffney of "nit-picking," and "petty" complaints that "defy logic and reason".

Rep. Elijah Cummings demanded an investigation of Gaffney.

There was something bigger at stake in the Cuomo-Gaffney case than sexual harassment.

Gaffney and her people had been digging into some shady behavior by Andrew Cuomo.

NBCNews:
The Biden administration is restricting the information Border Patrol agents and sector chiefs can share with the media as a surge of migrants tests the agency's capacity at the southern border, according to four current and two former Customs and Border Protection officials.

The officials say the restrictions are seen as an unofficial "gag order" and are often referred to that way among colleagues. The officials requested anonymity because they are not authorized to speak to the media about the topic.

Border Patrol officials have been told to deny all media requests for "ride-alongs" with agents along the southern land border; local press officers are instructed to send all information queries, even from local media, to the press office in Washington for approval; and those responsible for cultivating data about the number of migrants in custody have been reminded not to share the information with anyone to prevent leaks, the officials said.

Nelson referred to this passage in the Post story:

A Minneapolis official said the city had been concerned that the announcement could affect the trial.

The official, who was not authorized to speak publicly, said the city consulted with Hennepin County Chief District Judge Toddrick S. Barnette, who told the city it could proceed. Barnette did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Having taken up the issue with Judge Barnette, Judge Cahill disputed the accuracy of “the official’s” account of his conversation. Judge Barnette was said to have advised the city that he had no control over its handling of the federal wrongful death case. Judge Cahill quoted him as saying words to the effect that “We can’t tell you what to do,” not as authorizing the announcement of the settlement.

--they seemed to be mixing Monetary Policy with Fiscal Policy (a mistake I made in an exam back in 1968 that embarrasses me to this day...) by seeming to call the Covid Bill "Monetary Policy"--

Perhaps not by de jure standards but by de facto ones the two are now effectively mixed.
The Fed has largely abandoned its original mandate of maintaining a sound and stable currency in favor of accommodating and abetting an unsound and unstable fiscal mania.
It could be argued that the Fed's policy is meant to maintain the dollar's value by the only means it has at its disposal in the face of such fiscal profligacy but the fact is those policies meant to maintain the dollar's value remove the market signals that would prevent that profligacy. The original mandate was never to maintain its value by insane means in an insane world.
And because market discipline can be delayed but never destroyed the eventual reckoning will be considerably more catastrophic than it otherwise would have been.
IMO, the high debt-low interest rate regime is approaching the end of its life and will be followed by a deleveraging-rising interest rate one that will entail the considerable pain and economic and societal restructuring that usually accompanies such epochs, because they involve a period of moving from magical thinking to reality and that is never painless.
The period after WW2 was a rare instance of events so arranging themselves that we could grow our way out of that debt over thirty or so years relatively painlessly. But that was in a period of low regulation and virtually no competition for US supremacy and a Dem party that was relatively friendly to that growth and that mostly believed in and supported free markets.
None of those circumstances obtain today.

That period was also blessed with good demographics of men & women returning from war in their prime with ambitions for jump starting families and careers; it was a period of great patriotism and respect for the greatness of the USA and its people; compared to today, it was a period of low current spending (hence taxation) by governments, it was a period when government deficits had to be paid for by actually competing in the Bond Market for lendable funds, it was a period during which the number of dollars printed had to reflect the amount of actual gold in Fort Knox, it was a period when Congress did real budgets, real debt limits, and all in "Regular Order"; and probably more important than anything, we were a Constitutional Republic with actual respect for Private Property and the Rule of Law, not to mention the other rights and liberties intended therein.

With all the grousing about our host dumping on DJT -- given his otherwise normal competence and behavior, I thought it might be interesting to hear about my phone chat with an old HS pal yesterday.

So the background: I finished my last two years of HS at a large public HS in Phx. They had been doing AP classes for several years, but I showed up with maybe one from my Seattle school system. So the only AP class they dropped me into was physics and that turned out to be where all the bright kids were. There were two guys who probably had IQs >150 and one of them became a casual friend. (I also dated the Valedictorian, but she was lower on the smart scale, but busted her ass to get the top honors because her big sis was Salutatorian.) Heh.

To get an idea how smart the guy who I stayed in touch with was, his State Science Fair entry was on Magnetohydrodynamics. Yeah, the judges gave him an Honorable Mention, because they had no idea what it was.

Flash forward across 58 years and this guy was the Chief Scientist for Reagan's Starwars Program, then somewhere along the way ran a University and then became the Chief Scientist for Raytheon up until he retired.

Through the chat yesterday he claimed to be a life long Republican, which makes sense given his career, but he absolutely despises Trump. Everything we hear from the prog swamp is queued up in his head. Needless to say, I didn't try to dissuade him, but I reserve the right to put a dent in that perspective if we ever share a bottle of something down the road.

So, my takeaway? He dropped a comment about his 2nd wife (on #3 now) and how he never bothered to listen to her. Hmmm. I think he was admitting that when you are the smartest guy in the room/city/state, you don't spend a lot of time listening to anyone explain something. And with our incredibly well tuned lame-stream media wafting in the background, you subliminally absorb all that without bothering to pick it apart, cause you are so busy tending to your main focus.

Of course we thrash around here all the time regarding compartmentalized brains. In this case I think it is more about lacking any dose of humble, because you rarely need it. The three wives element appears to prove the rule.

Henry;

What I see is the age of specialization run amok. There are few generalists left. Today, kids start specializing in high school and then kick it into overdrive in college and beyond.

Because they specialize, they don't know any better and are usually not well versed in critical thinking. What they are taught is gospel, even when it is opinion.

The hard sciences used to be a refuge, as was engineering. Today even those are infected with politispeak.

Thus they trust the media to report everything as gospel. We know where that led. NPR and the networks are excuses not to engage in rational thought.
