The corrupt, Soviet-style, state-run media is all in on the $3 trillion Biden infrastructure plan. – The great Mollie Hemingway captured the essence of the media’s slavish, lapdog reaction to the Sock Puppet-in-Chief’s announcement yesterday in this tweet:
Yep. Brazen, cartoonish, straight-up propaganda. As if written by White House staff for the most gullible and easily controlled idiots in the country. https://t.co/wJniv9f1Pq

Everything about that New York Times headline is an outright lie, a Biden administration narrative parroted by leftist stooges who spend their days posing as journalists. Enlarge that chart on the left of the page and what you see is not a focus on “jobs, roads and growth,” but on payoffs to the Democrat Party’s supporters in the green lobby and its favored constituents who are dependent on government largesse.
Take the chart on “Transportation” as a prime example. Here’s what you see:
Electric Vehicle Incentives – An incredible $174 BILLION for you to subsidize the 1% of the upper class who purchase expensive EVs. Astonishing. This is the second-largest number in the entire plan.
Roads and Bridges – This seemingly positive provision comes in at $115 billion. But understand that, as I explained in yesterday’s News Roundup, most of this money will not go to repairing and expanding the nation’s crumbling road and bridge infrastructure, but instead will go to adding things like bicycle and bus lanes that are designed to make it more difficult for you to access these roads and bridges with your personal cars.
And here’s the thing: The National Association of Manufacturers estimates that we have become so far backlogged in repairing our nation’s road and bridge infrastructure that we really need to spend about 8 times this $115 billion over the next 10 years just to get the job done. Instead, Biden plans to spend a pinprick of that amount. Because, repeat after me, this is not an infrastructure plan.
Public Transit – Hey, more spending on buses and trains that nobody rides! Great idea! $85 billion.
Passenger and freight railways – And another $80 billion on trains and railroads. Actually, if this number focused on vastly expanding freight railways in order to take 18 wheelers off the interstate highways, it would be a true benefit to our society. But you can be certain that most of this money will instead go to even more subsidization of Amtrak, which has been basically bankrupt since the 1970s, and to prop up massively wasteful boondoggles like California’s railway to nowhere, which is already about 10,000% over its initial budget.
Those are the top 4 items under “Transportation,” totaling a whopping $452 billion over 10 years. Maybe 1/10th of that number will go to actually fixing dilapidated infrastructure. Maybe.
Let’s take a look at “Buildings and Utilities,” shall we?
Affordable Housing – An incredible $213 billion goes to a dramatic expansion of a social welfare program that has failed since the Great Depression.
High Speed Broadband – $100 billion. Another dramatic expansion of social welfare.
Electric Grid and Clean Energy – A $100 billion payoff to the fake green lobby.
Public Schools – Another $100 billion. I’m old enough to remember when public education and the building and maintenance of public schools was a power left to the states. Here’s your federal takeover.
It is only after that initial $513 billion of planned payoffs to Democrat constituencies that you get to some actual “infrastructure” spending. Surreal.
Now we have something called “Jobs and Innovation,” whatever that means to this evil administration. Here are some of the provisions included in this catch-all category:
National Science Foundation – $50 billion for what, exactly? Oh, hey, guess what is a big part of the NSF’s budget? If you guessed Anthony Fauci’s National Institutes for Health slush fund, you win the prize. Guess where most of this $50 billion will be going? It isn’t hard.
Semiconductor Industry – A $50 billion payoff to the Big Tech monopolies who helped fix the election last year.
Clean Energy Manufacturing – Another $46 billion Easter Egg for the fake green lobby.
Climate Technology – Another $35 billion Easter Egg – they’re everywhere in this plan.
Bottom line: You are going to be utterly brainwashed by our Soviet-style corrupt media establishment over the next month or two to accept this absolute travesty of a plan as the solution to all of our problems with “roads and bridges.” That will be the focus of the joint Democrat/media narrative that will be shoved down your throats.
But the truth is that this plan has pretty close to nothing in it that will improve the quality of our nation’s transportation infrastructure for individual drivers. In fact, there is far more money in this plan that is designed to intentionally make your daily commutes vastly more difficult in order to satisfy the demands of the Global Church of Climate Change.
That’s the truth, and you won’t be getting any truth on this plan from our corrupt, Soviet-style propaganda media establishment.
That is all.
