The D.C. swamp is reconstituting around Joe Biden.
The Democrats and their pals in the press were able to put him in power by relentlessly smearing Donald Trump.
But Biden acknowledged one Trump victory that shocked everyone.
Joe Biden seemingly won the 2020 election because he had the corporate press on his side.
One survey showed that 17% of Biden voters in swing states would not have voted for him had they known about the negative Biden stories or even the positive Trump stories that got buried.
For example, many voters did not know about Trump’s initiative to fast-track a COVID-19 vaccine called Operation Warp Speed.
The program, among other things, allowed drug companies to bypass a lot of the bureaucratic red tape that otherwise slows down the production of new drugs.
That’s one of the reasons why a COVID vaccine was manufactured in record time under the auspices of the Trump administration.
And surprisingly, as Biden publicly received his vaccination, he actually thanked Trump for his efforts in distributing the vaccine so quickly.

This is a reversal for Biden because he and Kamala Harris both had expressed serious skepticism about taking any vaccine created under the Trump administration.
They weren’t the only Democrats who felt that way either.
New York governor Andrew Cuomo said he hoped the vaccine did not come out while Trump was in office and said he wouldn’t distribute it to citizens in his state under those conditions.
The Democrats and the so-called mainstream media have been proven wrong time and again by Trump.
They can’t understand how an outsider could come into Washington, D.C., do things differently, and get positive results.
For example, Trump said NATO allies should pay what they promised in return for defense, and they did.
The supposed experts said moving the embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem would kill any Middle East peace talks, then the Trump administration brokered historic peace deals between Israel and several Muslim nations.
The establishment said he was a madman for pulling out of the toothless Paris Climate Accords, but the United States cut carbon emissions more than the other countries in the agreement.
Trump also renegotiated NAFTA and got Mexico and Central American countries to help in curtailing the problem of illegal immigration into the United States.
Even The New York Times was forced to admit that Trump was right about schools needing to open because COVID was not a big threat to them.
It’s good that Biden was able to give him some credit, but if the corporate press had been honest in their coverage of Trump every step of the way, Biden wouldn’t have come close to winning the election at all.
