The massive spending bill backed by President Joe Biden and Democrat leadership in Congress highlights just how radical their party has become and the farce behind billing the Biden presidency as a “moderate” alternative to the far left.
The $3.5 trillion spending measure has been billed as a way to promote health care and repair or build more infrastructure, as well as provide an additional Band-Aid to an economy hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic.
With this spending bill, though, the problem isn’t just the sheer cost of the thing. That $3.5 trillion cost is a substantial issue given the weight of our national debt—which has mushroomed as of late—and the growing effects of inflation.
The spending bill’s cost to the American people will be substantial, especially given that our federal government hasn’t been saving for a rainy day. We’ve gone from spending like drunken sailors in normal times to drawing the last drops of blood out of drunken sailors passed out on the street during a pandemic.
Is this really sustainable?
The spending issue on its own is deeply concerning. What makes this bill worse is how it’s crammed with all kinds of straight giveaways to Democrat-oriented groups, as well as policies that wouldn’t pass through stand-alone legislation.
In many ways, this seems to be the Democrat strategy in the Biden era: moderate-sounding legislation that cloaks a radical agenda to transform the American way of life.
Remember Democrats’ innocuous-sounding “For the People Act?” That would have transformed and nationalized American elections in a way most amenable to the most progressive part of the Democrat Party.
Remember the “Equality Act?”
That bill would have forced transgender ideology on the whole country. The current spending bill clearly isn’t just about health care and infrastructure, it’s about radical economic and social transformation. The bill is full of all kinds of kickbacks for public sector labor unions. No surprise there.
“Labor is not only all over supporting it, it has helped craft it,” American Federation of Teachers President Randi Weingarten said of the spending bill in an interview with Politico.
This is the same Randi Weingarten who insisted that public schools aren’t pushing critical race theory, but then immediately reversed course and said her teachers union would do everything it could to shield teachers who taught critical race theory in opposition to state laws.
The bill even has a giveaway for journalists: a tax credit that would pay local publishers tens of thousands of dollars for each journalist they employ. This is being justified as a way to save local news outlets, but it seems more like a perverse incentive to make the press universal wards of the state.
As Adam Guillette, president of Accuracy in Media, wrote in The Daily Signal: “Think of it as a way to turn every news outlet in America into a version of NPR.”
As if that’s what we need.
In a larger sense, Democrats’ spending bill is a testament to where their party is right now. Perhaps the most egregious element, on top of everything else, is how they tried to use it to jam through amnesty for illegal immigrants.
During a historic surge at the southern border that even Biden’s Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas called “one of the toughest challenges we face,” Democrats apparently are eager to ensure that even more people come across the border illegally.
An earlier version of the spending bill would have given amnesty to 8 million illegal immigrants, the largest grant of amnesty in American history.
“This Russian-nesting-doll approach may be a clever legislative strategy, but it is terrible democratic accountability,” wrote the editors at National Review. “There is no way that this immigration proposal would pass if it were a stand-alone measure subject to normal scrutiny and debate.”
This provision was struck down, not because Democrats balked at how extreme it was, but because the Senate parliamentarian said it violated the chamber’s Byrd rule.
The Senate parliamentarian may have stopped this bout of stealth amnesty, but the fact that Democrats tried to lodge it in a massive spending bill reveals the falsehood of prominent Democrats’ rhetoric that they aren’t for open borders.
The bottom line is that the cost of this spending bill would go beyond the $3.5 trillion price tag. There is a reason that the few remaining centrist Democrats balk at it and Republicans are in lockstep against it.
Biden’s “Build Back Better” campaign slogan apparently really meant that we would crumble quicker and remake America atop the rubble.

Big Pharma’s Five Major Minions that Everyone, Vaxxed or Unvaxxed, Must Oppose
This is not an “anti-vaxxer” article, per se. It’s a call for everyone to wake up to the nefarious motives behind vaccine mandates, booster shots, and condemnation of freedom.
The worst kept secret in world history SHOULD be that the unquenchable push for universal vaccinations against Covid-19 has little if anything to do with healthcare and everything to do with Big Pharma’s influence over the narrative. Unfortunately, that secret has stayed firmly hidden from the vast majority of people because of the five major minions working on behalf of Big Pharma.
What’s even worse is the fact that Big Pharma’s greed is merely a smokescreen to hide an even darker secret. We’ll tackle that later. First, let’s look at the public-facing ringleaders behind the vaccine push, namely Big Pharma. But before we get into their five major minions, it’s important to understand one thing. This is NOT just an article that speaks to the unvaccinated. Even those who believe in the safety and effectiveness of the vaccines must be made aware of agenda that’s at play.
Let’s start with some facts. The unvaccinated do NOT spread Covid-19 more rampantly than the vaccinated. Even Anthony Fauci acknowledged the viral load present in vaccinated people is just as high as in the unvaccinated. This fact alone should demolish the vaccine mandates as it demonstrates they have absolutely no effect on the spread of the disease. But wait! There’s definitely more.
This unhinged push to vaccinate everyone defies science. Those with natural immunity may actually have their stronger defenses against Covid-19 hampered by the introduction of the injections which fool the body into creating less-effective antibodies. Moreover, the push to vaccinate young people is completely bonkers. The recovery rate for those under the age of 20 is astronomical. Children neither contract, spread, nor succumb to Covid-19 in a statistically meaningful way. What they DO succumb to more often than Covid-19 are the adverse reactions to the vaccines, particularly boys.
All of this is known and accepted by the medical community, yet most Americans are still following the vaccinate-everybody script. It requires pure cognitive dissonance and an overabundant need for confirmation bias to make doctors and scientists willingly go along with the program. Yet, here we are and that should tell you something.
Before I get to the five major minions of of Big Pharma, I must make the plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our GivingFuel page or via PayPal. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Who does Big Pharma control? It starts with the obvious people, the ones who most Americans believe are actually behind this push. Our governments at all levels as well as governments around the world are not working with Big Pharma. They are working for Big Pharma. Some are proactive as direct recipients of cash. Others may oppose Big Pharma in spirit but would never speak out because they know anyone who does has no future in DC.
This may come as a shock to some, but it’s Big Pharma that drives the narrative and sets the agenda for the “experts” at the CDC, FDA, WHO, NIH, NIAID, and even non-medical government organizations.
Most believe it’s the other way around. They think that Big Pharma is beholden to the FDA for approval, but that’s not exactly the case. They need approval for a majority of their projects, but when it comes to the important ones such as the Covid injections, Big Pharma is calling the shots. They have the right people in the right places to push their machinations forward.
That’s not to say that everyone at the FDA is in on it. Big Pharma only needs a handful of friendlies planted in leadership in order to have their big wishes met. We have seen people quitting the FDA in recent weeks for this very reason. The same can be said about the other three- and five-letter agencies. Too many people in leadership have been bribed, bullied, or blackmailed into becoming occasional shills for the various Big Pharma corporations. Some have even been directly planted by Big Pharma. That’s the politics of healthcare and science that drives such things as Covid-19 “vaccines.”
