Fancy Footwork

If you don’t believe that one day pigs will fly, Hell will freeze over, people will trust their own senses again, some politician — any politician — will one day utter an honest word, or AOC will one day be unable to get even her old bartending job back, take a look at this:

Joe Biden’s poll numbers just aren’t getting any better:

With just more than 200 days left until the 2022 election, there’s little evidence that President Joe Biden’s poll numbers are improving – and there’s some data to suggest things are getting worse … the bump Biden experienced in some polling in the immediate aftermath of his State of the Union speech in early March was temporary – and not evidence of any longer-term comeback.

The astonishing part isn’t that Uncle Joe’s poll numbers are tanking. That was as predictable, inevitable, and anticlimactic as Jeffrey Epstein’s waking up dead in his jail cell. The astonishing part is that CNN reported it. CNN!

Strange Things Are Happening

And just when you thought you’d never live long enough to see Satan on a bobsled team, there’s this:

Federal investigation of Hunter Biden heats up:

A Justice Department investigation into Hunter Biden’s business activities has gained steam in recent months, with a flurry of witnesses providing testimony to federal investigators and more expected to provide interviews in the coming weeks … The probe, led by the US Attorney in Wilmington, Delaware … concerns multiple financial and business activities in foreign countries dating to when Biden’s father was vice president … law enforcement has gathered information from lobbyists connected to Hunter Biden, from his business partners, and from others who’ve observed his financial engagements, including a woman with whom he had a child.

My goodness. What kind of world do we live in in which a drug-taking, drug-dealing, money-laundering, tax-evading, gun-running, foreign-lobbying, influence-peddling kid like Hunter can’t make a living? When you think about that, it almost causes you to overlook the fact that all of Hunter’s shenanigans, including the revelations in the contents of his legendary laptop, have become so mind-blowingly evident that CNN and The New York Times The New York Times! — can’t duck it anymore.

Holy Shit! This is big, kids.

If the corruption of the Biden family finally gets out, there isn’t enough sunlight in the world to disinfect it.

One More Thing

Speaking of Uncle Joe’s poll numbers, former advisor to Bill Clinton (speaking of the need for disinfecting) and Democratic pollster, Mark Penn, was a panelist on The Story last Thursday. He had this to say about Uncle Joe’s standing and his track record:

These are spectacularly low [approval] numbers. To really get down to it, only a third being favorable and in the 20s on independents, of course makes [Biden’s] re-election a virtual impossibility … they’ve had month after month here to do something to turn around on inflation, on immigration, on Ukraine, on crime. And they just haven’t done it.

As it turns out, there may be some things from which you can’t dance away after all.

We do our work so well that seven of the companies (brands) we’ve represented have been acquired by other companies. OCG is different because our business model is different. We don’t bill by the hour or the project. We don’t bill by time or materials. We don’t mark anything up. We don’t take media commissions. We pass through every expense incurred on behalf of our clients at net. We scope the work, price the work, put beginning and end dates on our engagements, and charge flat, consistent fees every month for the terms of the engagements. I’m also a writer by calling and an Irish storyteller by nature. In addition to writing posts for my company’s blog, I’m a frequent publisher on LinkedIn and Medium. And I’ve published three books for children, numerous short stories, and other works, all of which are available on Amazon under my full name, Mark Nelson O’Brien.

  1. Well said Mark. I have great hopes for the mid-terms & 2024, but after the immoral and downright criminal stuff that we witnessed prior to and during the last presidential election (both by the Dem party & media) I am (very) cautiously optimistic. Our founding fathers knew that our system of government relied heavily upon God-fearing men and women being at the helm. We’re witnessing what happens when that is not the case….amplified by a complicit press. I’m very thankful that our ultimate hope does not lie with the elephant or the donkey, but with the Lamb!

    • Thank you, Mike. To that I would add the Founding Fathers never in their worst nightmares imagined career politicians. Because they recognized the potential for corruption, they recommended two-year terms in “the people’s House” and six-year terms in the Senate.

      We’ve come a long way, baby.

    • Great point. The Founders showed a great deal of wisdom (some from above I would say). Should be no such thing as career politicians for sure.

  2. We’ll Mark, you have definitely summed-up the sad state of the current administration that just have one too many clowns stuffed into that small circus car. The past tap dancing and the good old soft shoe of the Biden media sycophants has stopped. They just can’t ignore the plain truth any longer. The average American voter (liberal as well as conservative and independent) have known this truth all along — Biden is an old fool dancing alone in the dark while his corrupt family played the tune — a funeral dirge for the Democrats in the midterm election and beyond in 2024. Kamala giggles while doing the ball and the Jack.
