But perhaps we are done cataloguing the villainy of the Left for one day. There is only so much outrage one can stand, after all.

The Ever-Continuous Villaining of Joe Biden and His Minions

We must turn them out of power as thoroughly as possible this fall

I’ve discussed the “hero’s journey of Donald Trump” here in this column multiple times — and it turns out I couldn’t get away from it even if I wanted to. Every day we hear a drumbeat of evidence that the Left — the media-governmental-intelligence Deep State complex that has declared war on the entire world, with the free American people its primary enemy — has gone absolutely off the deep end.

Villains gonna villain, y’all. And these villains are villaining like the clock is running out on them.

I’ll get the destruction of the Francis Scott Key Bridge over Baltimore Harbor out of the way first because I expect that some of the ubiquitous Democrat trolls in the comments will want to assume it’s part of this discussion. It isn’t really, at least not yet, though there are some manifestations of the theme in the reaction to the bridge going down thanks to a rogue container ship crashing directly into one of its uprights early Tuesday.

For example, there is Joe Biden, who could not help himself but to lie about his personal connection to that bridge:

At about 1:30, a container ship struck the Francis Scott Key Bridge, which I’ve been over many, many times commuting from the state of Delaware either on a train or by car. I’ve been to Baltimore Harbor many times. And the bridge collapsed, sending several people and vehicles into the water — into the river.

What marks the lie here? How about the fact that you can’t take a train over that bridge. It has no railroad tracks; it’s just a four-lane roadway.

Why is it necessary for this quintessential political troglodyte to force himself onto every news hook possible as though each were somebody’s kid whose hair he just had to dig in and get a snootful of?

Biden promised that the federal government would pay to rebuild the bridge. Why would you make that statement before we even know the actual cause of its destruction, Dirty Joe?

The official word is that the ship hitting that bridge and knocking it down was an accident. Perhaps so, but video of the incident appears to show the ship losing power, regaining it, and then losing power again before smacking directly into that stanchion:

We don’t know anywhere near enough about why that ship lost power, and, until we do, nobody ought to say much of anything about responses or consequences. It could be that someone out there owes a lot of money to rebuild that bridge. Like the shipping line or … whoever had a hand in that ship losing power. Why put the world’s largest debtor on the hook for the bridge before any of those ground balls have been run out?

It’s a little suspicious. It makes one think of Victoria Nuland, another one of our Deep State villains, and her little speech about how funding Ukraine makes “asymmetrical warfare” against Russia — meaning Russian economic and industrial infrastructure — more possible.

It also makes one think about the Netflix movie Barack and Michelle Obama executive-produced back in December. The first scene in Leave the World Behind that indicates something has gone horribly wrong has an oil tanker bizarrely go to ground directly on a beach in the Hamptons. At least in the movie the ship didn’t knock down a major bridge and close one of America’s biggest ports indefinitely.

There are suspicious things, and then there are terrible things.
