The Biden Presidency

The excuse I have seen for removing the dislikes is because YouTube did not think the dislikes where genuine.

And that easy enough with some content.
Take forgotten weapons, get a notification video posted 2 minutes ago, click on it, say its a 15 minute long video.
Its been up 3 minutes by the time I hit play, but it already has a dozen dislikes.
Its like some dweeb actually wait for a post to hit the dislike icon.
Similar with other channels. Hell I have noticed it with the History guy too.
 
This Biden Presidency has really started the way most sensible people suspected it would with a Senile man at the mercy of the far left elite

1. Total chaos wrt to his exec order stopping illegal immigration removal and Texas suing him as his order breeches US law
2. Canada now considering suing him for cancelling Keystone XL - a move by the way which would mean an increase in emissions as the US would have to fall back on ships/trains yo move the oil, (NB Obama admin investigated its environmental impact 5 times and each time it found that it would reduce the environmental impact)
3. Far left Communist dictator Gov Cuomo reportedly considering suing Bides admin for 15Bn dollars of additional Federal funding required to cover for his own shocking mismanagement of his state and the loss of 100s of 1000s of tax payers who have moved out of the city to escape his policies
4. the NG forced to sleep in underground parking garages after they become of no more propaganda use to Nancy and Schumer after the inauguration
5. Democrats starting senate impeachment of Trump starting Monday - unconstitutional, childish and vindictive with no chance of winning - highly likely to hurt Biden (and snake McConnell) far more than Trump
5. 10s of thousands of US jobs immediately lost on the cancelled pipeline and Wall plus a potential 3.7M more due to the implementation of the $15 min wage - at the very least there will be significant price rises passed to people dining in restaurants but it is inevitable jobs will be lost and/or workers hours cut

and that is before he cancels Trumps tax cuts, re-implements red tape and re-joins the Paris climate accord which will severely impact US manufacturers.

I really cant see 2022 going well for him/Dems

Edited to add, it turns out another of his exec orders was to allow transgenders into woman's sports - women are not happy!

Could be a fake edit, could be genuine
In a big internet there are different servers running counts, though 4 hours out of sync is a stretch but modern technology is pretty rubbish

Rest assured that the stats are back up with dislikes far exceeding likes

Hilarious that those who shout "Fake News" at the drop of a hat spread so much of it. Ole raider will be looking for the next 'shop image to post as I type.

https://www.economist.com/media-assets/audio/005 Leaders - The Biden presidency-bfce49db6e3a9b9ef047657353e55af3.mp3

JOE BIDEN has been dreaming of moving into the White House since at least 1987, when he first ran for president. How those dreams must have differed from the reality this week. The official toll of American deaths from covid-19 has passed 400,000. By the end of his first 100 days it may have passed 500,000. Millions of Americans have lost their jobs. Instead of observing the triumph of democracy in eastern Europe from the Oval Office, as the victor of the election in 1988 did, Mr Biden must contend with democratic decay at home. It is not an auspicious start. Yet, unlikely as it sounds, in the next few months the view from 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue could improve dramatically.

The article continues:

This will help lower the temperature of American politics, which could open other possibilities. By working with Republicans eager for Congress to get things done, Mr Biden may yet be able to pass an infrastructure bill and something on climate change, as well as his covid-19 package. In textbooks, democracy involves solving problems through compromise and managing conflict in elections. With a president inclined to build a coalition, a little of that spirit might return to Washington. Voters may even prefer it to 24-hour partisan warfare.

A lot could go wrong. Senate Republicans may oppose everything Mr Biden suggests simply because he is a Democrat. The left of his party may turn sour on him for trying to make deals with Republicans. Politics has been simple during the Trump administration, which more often governed by inflaming partisan fights than fixing America’s problems. Engaging with reality is much harder—especially when you are buffeted by events.

To have the best chance of success, Mr Biden should stick to his folksy brand of dogged centrism which is so well suited to the moment. Western allies should be patient and not expect a miraculous overnight transformation. The return of restraint to the White House will be only the first step in a long journey, but it is a necessary one for America’s renewal...

I don’t understand. Why is it unconstitutional?
 
Because they don’t like it
Nothing to do with the impeachment process being defined in the constitution, or perhaps they haven’t read the constitution

@headgear - would the proposed impeachment of Biden be ‘childish and vindictive with no chance of winning’?

The Dems would need 17 GOP Senators to vote to convict. After the fiasco of the House GOP, good luck getting that many to cross the line.
 
If a post is removed, wouldn't the likes/dislikes go with it?

Maybe, but you can like/dislike a video without leaving a comment. You can also leave a comment without leaving a like/dislike.

Given that 70+ million Americans voted for Trump it is plausible that a huge amount of them "disliked" the YouTube videos.

Boys can, and are, used to vote up/down YouTube videos with likes/dislikes. Given the amount of data YouTube harvests from their users I do not doubt for a minute they would be able to identify which likes/dislikes are from bots. BUT that information will not be for public consumption.

The US has very low trust in its news media and silicon valley, so people will just believe what "facts" fit with their beliefs.

Rhe accounts could have been removed. Theres recently been a purge of QAnon/bot accou ts.

If they're removed, then their likes etc will likely go too.

Or it's the lizard alien deep state candymen again.

Have a like for this bit: To have the best chance of success, Mr Biden should stick to his folksy brand of dogged centrism which is so well suited to the moment.
 
Noted, but I'm arguing that's what needs to happen and what he should be setting his agenda to do.

If not, I think there will be trouble. As we have mostly argued, Trump lost as a result of his personality, not his policies. We've seen from the polls how many US voters went Democrat purely to remove the man. This emphatically did not translate to a National swing behind Progressivism.

That being the case, progressive ideas almost certainly have a natural culminating point not much further down the American road. At that point, a public push-back will begin. If the progressive response is a resort to authoritarianism, there will be an increasing public backlash, and so on. This could see a Trump successor returned with enhanced powers.

This is exactly what happened over BREXIT. Successive attempts to move in an authoritarian direction, supported by much of our National elite, but in defiance of the 2016 vote, met with a progressively more neuralgic public reaction. It culminated in an 80 seat majority for Boris Johnson. Little people may not own the airwaves, but they still have a vote.

I concede that there are some powerful imperatives in the Progressive case, but it is just that, a case. In a democracy, a case has to be argued and voted upon. It cannot be imposed, however much our elites may feel entitled to do so...
Your right, the institutions have been taken over by the 'case' and they're have manufactured lots of facts/evidence that creates enough of a consensus, to make a case/debate, into an authoritarian truth. Its ironic in a way, that those opposed to religion are so wedded to the idea of expert truth, that is only ever based on faith and usually believe they're are facts, by pointing to science achievements based on actual evidence and not manufactured from a humanities department.

Our mainstream media are fixed on 'telling the truth' and have become censors and so very few politicians, will go against the prevailing wind. Democracy however is the last impediment, for the cult of experts and why so many of the voices in the media, parrot the international co-operation line and always seek to move the power away from the people and what truth/reality they're wish to live out there lives in.

They already have 10 willing to back it up, including the one you're currently sobbing over from Wyoming.

Assuming all of that and the way you present it, is fact, which is debatable, it's nothing that other presidents have not done.
You take all the decisions that will annoy people at the beginning when the other side is still sore with you.
Then you start with the decisions that people will appreciate towards the mid-terms when you need votes. Finally you bring in the really good things in the last year of your term looking for re-election.
Classic.

I thought the QAnon purge happend right after the 6th Jan riot and not after the inauguration on the 20th.
 

Shocking isn’t it.
No ,it’s science and he is just pointing out the obvious. Anything his administration implements won’t have an effect for several months due to the widespread nature of the virus and the fact that a person is not fully protected until several weeks after being inoculated. Add in the problems with distributing the vaccine and it’ll be late Spring before we see a major improvement. It looks like several new vaccines will be approved shortly, which will help.
