Kakistocracy: noun, government by the worst persons; a form of government in which the worst persons are in power.

The old saying goes that even a blind squirrel finds a nut occasionally.  So you might think that during a 50-year political career, the odds would dictate that Joe Biden would, once in a blue moon, make a correct decision — just based on the odds.  But you’d be mistaken.  Biden has stumbled and bumbled from one disastrous decision to the next.  Disastrous, that is, for America.  Biden himself has prospered handsomely in spite of his glaring incompetence and corruption. 

Biden’s long Senate career was based on being the credit card companies’ man in Washington.  While crowing endlessly about the working class being “his people,” Biden sponsored bills allowing bank issuers to charge egregious interest rates and to make it harder for working men to escape the credit trap through bankruptcy.

When Biden chaired the Senate Judiciary Committee, he turned the confirmation of Clarence Thomas into a political smear campaign that descended into a degenerate three-ring circus. In his first campaign for president, he failed to garner a single percentage point before having to withdraw when confronted with his past lies and blatant plagiarism. He literally stole a speech detailing a British politician’s life story. He ran again in 2008 but again failed to reach even one percent of the vote.

When Barack Obama took him off the primary trash heap to make him vice president, Biden first made a hash out of the 2009 American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, wasting hundreds of billions on boondoggles and giveaways to Democrat cronies. Little of the recovery billions was spent on anything useful to America. Biden went on to manage our relations with China and Ukraine, pocketing untold millions for himself and his family by selling out America’s security interests.

By the time he ran for president again in 2020 he was a spent husk of his former corrupt and incompetent self, delivering asinine performances in the Iowa caucus and New Hampshire primary. When the Democrat establishment propped him up to once again stop Bernie Sanders, Biden was set up for the strangest presidential campaign in modern history. While Donald Trump barnstormed the nation with packed, enthusiastic rallies, Biden cowered in his basement, occasionally venturing out to speak with a few dozen voters sitting in circles drawn on the floor.

For his vice presidential pick, he chose — if you can believe it — an even more buffoonish candidate than himself.

Had it not been for Mark Zuckerberg buying and staffing government election offices in swing states, and the media and Big Tech’s censorship of the Biden family’s corruption, Biden would now be enjoying his dotage in Delaware, creeping on unsuspecting children with yarns of Corn Pop and South African arrests.

Instead, the man with one of the most astonishing records of abject failure in Washington was installed in the White House, and he has remained true to form.  As one of a hundred senators and then as vice president, there was a limit to how much damage he could do.  But as president, the shackles have been removed.

His first agenda item was to throttle our oil and gas sector, offshoring tens of thousands of good paying jobs to Russia and the Middle East — along with our energy independence. He threw open our southern border and encouraged virtually unlimited illegal immigration — during a global pandemic.

He sponsored trillions of dollars in wasteful spending, pushing our national debt to over $31 trillion.  Were it not for two Democrat senators who had not yet taken leave of their senses, it would have been even worse.  As it is, Biden has sparked the largest one-year increase in inflation in 40 years.

Biden’s “defund the police” rhetoric delivered us soaring violent crime in Democrat-run cities, while he sicced federal law enforcement on parents who object too strenuously to their children being indoctrinated with anti-White racism and LGBTQIA+ ideology. 

It can truly be said that as president, Biden’s record of failure remains unblemished.  

But now comes what may be the capstone on Biden’s long history of buffoonery and corruption.  In Ukraine, we have an armed conflict that threatens to plunge the world into an economic depression and raises the specter of nuclear war.  Not only did Biden set the stage for this calamity when, as vice president, he was in charge of Ukraine policy and led Kiev to believe that NATO membership was in Ukraine’s future, but on the eve of the Russian invasion, he refused to admit that it was not.  Then Biden all but admitted to Vladimir Putin — on live TV, no less — that NATO would not defend Ukraine if Russia chose to invade. 

In the aftermath of Russia’s invasion, Biden and his administration have crafted sanctions that seem almost designed to boomerang on America’s and Europe’s fragile post-pandemic economies, while forcing Russia into a deeper alliance with China

With the U.S. over $31 trillion in debt, Biden seems totally oblivious to the perilous position of the U.S. dollar as the world’s reserve currency and the consequences should that privileged position end. 

Economists predict that food and gasoline will cost the average U.S. household an additional $3,000 this year, and inflation threatens to push millions of lower-middle income-earners into abject poverty.

And bumbling, corrupt Joe Biden isn’t yet halfway through his first — and please God, last — term.

Recap of Day 27 of the Truckers for Freedom Convoy

Recap of Day 27 of the Truckers for Freedom Convoy

February 19, 2022

On day 27 of the Truckers For Freedom Convoy, police trampled and beat peaceful protesters, a True North journalist was pepper-sprayed and the world watched on in disgust.

The day began with the Trudeau government cancelling debate over the Emergencies Act in the House due to police action on adjacent streets around Parliament Hill. 

Shocking scenes ensued.

Riot police had been flown in from all corners of Ontario to shut down the protest. They were armed with heavy firepower, riot gear, pepper spray, tear gas and batons. 

Police deployed riot horses and pepper spray, vehicles’ windows were smashed, and over 100 arrests were made.

In what was likely the most horrifying scene of the day, police on horseback charged the crowd and trampled an elderly First Nations woman who had pleaded that the protest was peaceful.

Her condition in hospital is unknown at this time.

Watch the shocking abuse of power enabled by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s implementation of the Emergencies Act.

This picture shows the chaos from above.

Pepper spray was deployed on both non-violent protesters and the media, including True North Senior Fellow Andrew Lawton. 

Here is what happened to Andrew

This was the tense moment before police charged protesters in front of the Chateau Laurier and Andrew was maced.


Andrew livestreamed events throughout the day.


A large police presence was seen outside the Westin Hotel where the arresting of protesters began this morning.


A shocking moment was captured by a Global News livestream as police manhandled a veteran.


Ottawa Police tweeted that protesters were provoking officers on the scene.

Legacy media reported that the people who were trampled by riot horses had thrown a bike at the police.

A review of the evidence shows an elderly woman with her mobility walker.


This Global News report said that “a bicycle was thrown at the feet of one of the horses in an attempt to injure it, and one person was arrested for intentionally harming a police service animal.”

Elsewhere, police were seen beating a protester with what appeared to be the stock of his rifle.


Condemnation of police action poured in from observers around the globe.

Fox News host Tucker Carlson slammed Trudeau in a scathing segment on his evening show.

“If it looks like something out of Belarus, it is. But it’s happening in a capital right here in North America,” Carlson said. “They kneed several demonstrators in the head…horses began trampling Canadians as they peacefully protested.”

“This kind of violence sponsored by Justin Trudeau continued all day…here’s the definition of tyranny. It’s oppressing your citizenry, ignoring the most basic standards of human rights and then preventing the worst of the world from seeing what you’re doing.”


People’s Party of Canada leader Maxime Bernier labeled Justin Trudeau’s Canada “a banana republic.”

“There is no emergency in Canada,” declared Bernier. “No war. No insurrection. No terrorist attack that justified invoking this law. It is outright illegal, undemocratic and unconstitutional.”


Interim Conservative Party leader Candice Bergen wrote on Twitter that she was “disturbed and saddened” by what she was seeing in Ottawa.


Despite the shocking scenes that unfolded during the day, protesters in Ottawa resiliently celebrated another night on Wellington Street by lighting fireworks and dancing.


True North will continue to bring you more coverage throughout the weekend. 

The House of Commons is expected to resume its debate over Trudeau’s implementation of the Emergencies Act on Saturday.

The Givesendgo set up by the Truckers for Freedom Convoy organizers had reached USD $9,679,468 by the time this article was published.

We’re asking readers, like you, to make a contribution in support of True North’s fact-based, independent journalism.

Unlike the mainstream media, True North isn’t getting a government bailout. Instead, we depend on the generosity of Canadians like you.

How can a media outlet be trusted to remain neutral and fair if they’re beneficiaries of a government handout? We don’t think they can.
