Ohio Poisoning: Heck of a Job, Brandon
“Brownie, you’re doing a heck of a job” –
– President Bush to FEMA Director Michael Brown during Hurricane Katrina in 2005
The unraveling of President George W. Bush’s administration began with its incompetent response to Hurricane Katrina. In 2005, it only was dawning on Americans Bush’s Iraq and Afghan wars were turning into Vietnam-style quagmires. He started the year using, as he said, his “political capital” to try to privatize Social Security. Democrats immediately pounced on that, as they have again against 2023 GOP attempts at reform.
Then Katrina hit and it was downhill from there to losing Congress in 2006, bringing in as House speaker lovely Nancy Pelosi. Then Obama won in 2008, with a 60-Democratic seat Senate, imposing on us, with Pelosi actually the main instigator, Obamacare.
Today, the Ukraine War is unraveling into a Russian victory. That follows the humiliating 2021 exodus of U.S. troops from Kabul, finally ending the 20-year Afghan debacle. Inflation now is at 40-year highs. Then there were the excessive COVID lockdowns. Making the “vax” mandatory. Biden kept ordering, “Get vaccinated. Get boosted.”
Thank God I never trusted Biden enough to get “the jab.” I got the pox twice, giving me natural immunity. Last week The Lancet released a study showing natural immunity is as good as the vax at preventing a COVID re-infection.
Then there’s Balloongate. The incompetents let what apparently was a Chinese spy balloon float across the whole country before shooting it down. Then they took quick action against another serious invader, firing a $439,000 missile to take down a $12 amateur hobbyist’s balloon.
I haven’t been to Washington since the I lived there in the 1980s, when it already had become an insulated town. It’s worse now. The inmates there look on the America between the East and West coasts as “flyover country.” When they heard there was a problem in “East Palestine,” three-fourths of them said, “Isn’t that Netanyahu’s problem?”
Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg was a disaster when he was “America’s Mayor” of South Bend. He also was AWOL on the supply-chain crisis of a year ago, then the airline flight crisis last December. No wonder he delayed action on the train derailing. Maybe he was taking another “maternity leave.”
If it wasn’t for new Ohio Sen. J.D. Vance making a stink about the disaster, D.C. still would not have taken notice, including the mainstream media. Now, they certainly are, because they know it will be an issue against Biden and other Democrats in the 2024 election.
For the D.C. incestuous crowd, Flyover Country is just where their slaves work to provide the taxes to D.C. for the $6 trillion budgets. And where the credit card bill is sent for the $31 trillion debt. And where the youngsters are hooked into signing up to die in the absurd wars the D.C. vampers start, but in which they never risk their own pampered and perfumed necks.
Typically, Biden spent Presidents Day not in East Palestine, or even America, but in Kiyv with dictator Zelensky. That shows what he thinks is most important as his own country falls apart.

Spot on. Biden has no interest in East Palestine; he dispatched one of his flunkies here to taste the city drinking water along with the other politicians who’ve gathered.
Trump is due here tomorrow, and while the location is not publicly set yet, the phalanx of shiny, black Jeep Grand Wagoneers in the school parking lot behind us tells me he’ll be in either the gym or maybe the stadium. Erin Brockovich is coming on Friday and who knows who else will come in. It’s like a circus here and we’re bit players in the show. ( I enjoyed the line about East Palestine being Netanyahu’s problem, but if it really was the case, our pols would be falling over themselves offering everything they could muster).
The real work is being done by local groups and non-profits …offering water, supplies, assistance of various kinds. A powerful reminder that we can attend to our own families, churches and communities better than bureaucrats.
Name one thing that Brandon’s administration has done which has been good for the ole US of A? As for me and mine, we fly daily in our yard, which is located in a major metropolitan area, a 3′ by 5′ black flag on which is embossed in red and white “Biden is NOT by President”. Until this fool Brandon turns one trick for the good of the whole or he is tossed from office (which ever comes first), the flag remains.
In spite of my previous comment above and contrary to the flag that flies outside my home (which says “Biden is not MY President”, not “Biden is not BY President…whoops), I could be wrong. Instead of US citizens standing in total disbelief that Biden has been duly elected President and is performing his job competently, a majority of our fellow Americans may deeply love the current occupant of the White House and all of his antics. I make this disturbing remark in light of the burning insight of H.L. Mencken, when he said:
“As democracy is perfected, the office of president represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious
day, the plain folks of the land will reach their heart’s desire at last, and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.”
Maybe that great and glorious day has finally arrived.
The parade of visiting political and entertainment figures continues apace here in East Palestine. The aforementioned Brockovich showed up a day early, the useless Transportation Secretary made his appearance, only moments before Rudy Giuliani and Tulsi Gabbard brought their teams to town. We’ll soon be seeing groups coming to dig for Jimmy Hoffa at this rate. One positive note, our mayor deepened my appreciation for him when asked by the media mob what he wanted next, and he replied, politely, that he wanted them to go back home and leave East Palestine.
At least, it seems, Mr. Colin, that you all will be spared a visit from Brandon. Ukraine got him and so did Poland and they can keep him. He is far more toxic than anything burned in that train.
Someone should be manning the entrances to town to greet each new arrival with a tall glass of East Palestine’s very best tap water.
If they balk at your hospitality you can tell them that drinking toxic water is a necessary measure to inoculate them against toxins. Then they should be made to walk around with bags on their heads to protect them from toxic media exposure and to show solidarity with the locals’ need to wear hazmat suits to go grocery shopping.
You make excellent points, Mr. Strenk, particularly with regard to avoiding a visit from our Warmonger-in-Chief. There are reports of people in the evacuation zone enduring bouts of regurgitation; Brandon’s appearance in the village would only exacerbate that symptom to a colossal degree.
