About the Book

This book surveys President Biden's first two years in the White House. It examines first why he hasn't been able to keep his promise to stop the pandemic and to follow always his mantra "Follow the Science." Then there is discussion of the importance of critical thinking and examines how race was incorporated into it to generate the critical race theory the teaching of which in schools and colleges has come under sharp attack from parents whom his administration has termed domestic terrorists. His contention that white supremacy is the greatest danger to the country follows, with the added topics of the increase in crime since summer of 2020, associated looting, shooting and shop lifting and Democrats demand for better gun control and defunding of police. Open border and immigration is treated in the context of building back better border-less with the huge crowds there. After that we review the domestic policy, foreign policy, and climate policy, all of which has resulted in bankrolling trillions of dollars in the inflation nation with nothing to show the taxpayer who is suffering from increasing food and fuel prices daily. Three following chapters discuss the botched Afghanistan withdrawal, assisting Ukraine as hired hands with weapons and money to defend the Russian invasion, and China's actions to take control of Taiwan, respectively. The last chapter is about midterm elections in which control of the House of Representatives was taken over by Republicans and the prospects for completing two terms as president.
