Mike’s Midterm Tsunami Truth #7
Biden, Don’t F**k with Me
(The mainstream pundits and party hacks have been telling you we’re going to lose. This daily series from me is to tell you they’re wrong and why they’re wrong and how we’re going to win.)
The Democratic Party leaders don’t want me telling you there’s good news ahead. They’re worried if I convince you we’re going to win, that you won’t show up to vote ‘cause you’ll think your vote won’t be needed. They think you need to be scared into voting, so they tell you constantly we’re going to lose, then flood your inbox with desperate appeals to send them money (“Just 10 more dollars by midnight tonight! Act now!”).
I think they’re wrong. And as per usual, I think they are underestimating you. I think fear is paralyzing.
I subscribe to the wisdom of Sun Tzu, “Know thy enemy, know thyself.” Knowledge is power. Power brings confidence. Confidence is mobilizing.
Most of the reasons I’ve given you so far in this first week about our impending victory have focused around the “know thy enemy” half — namely how the Republicans (unbeknownst to themselves) are actively trying to lose, and all the ways we should take advantage of that.
But today, I want to focus on the other half of that sentiment, “know thyself.” Specifically, the one roadblock that could derail us and cost us the election.
His name is Joe Biden.
You see, on Thursday, Joe went back on his word to forgive up to $20,000 on everyone’s student loan debt if they make less than $125,000 a year. That’s because hours earlier, six Republican Attorney Generals filed a lawsuit against Biden and his student loan forgiveness program. And, in traditional Democratic fashion, he then became frightened of the Republicans, and less than 24-hours later he started to unravel a promise he had just made at the end of August.
He announced that if your federal student loan was backed by a private bank, he would not forgive any of your student loan. In doing so, he reneged on nearly 800,000 voters who thought they had just been rescued from up to $20,000 of debt.
[Uh, excuse me. One moment, I need to call the White House, 202-456-1414]:
Mr. President, may I have a word with you?
Why would you, just 5 weeks before these crucial midterm elections, put a knife in the backs of 800,000 Americans? Don’t you know there are millions of us out here trying to remove the 147 Republicans in Congress who voted to stage a coup by overturning YOUR election? Why are you helping them by undoing part of your student loan forgiveness you promised to so many people? What else are you planning to do before the election? Reduce Obamacare? Lower the minimum wage? Come out for Roe but declare you’re against Wade?
Can you please let us know now?
But here’s the thing, my friends. Before you freak out, hit the panic button, and glue yourself to cable news for the latest polling fallout, consider this, our Truth #7: Biden is not actually going to derail us and cost us the election. In fact, he’s irrelevant because WE are going to press forward no matter what crackpot thing Biden does between now and November 8th.
And that’s the reason we are going to win: No damn Democrat is going to screw this up for us again!
WE are tossing every Republican traitor out of office — even if Biden says the night is really daytime, the cow in fact jumped over the moon, or that I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter! is really butter. That IS the Truth. We won’t let any Democrats blow this. We are cleaning house.
And if the Dems don’t understand that, then they’ll be next.

The borrowers who are not going to be eligible for forgiveness are those who hold older Federal Family Education Loans and Perkins loans that are not held by or on behalf of the U.S. Department of Education.
The problem in America is not student loans but the cost of getting an education. 🤑
