Joe Biden's delusions: excerpts from his campaign's "vision" pages . Promoting death and perversion, increasing dependence upon government from Pre-K on up, inculcation of liberal "values," politically correct policies, and prevaricating propaganda, with this expensive expansion of government being funded via the economy that it will work to distress.
What Biden proposes and vows is essentially not much different than radical Sanders, but is somewhat less extensive and straightforward (while being verbose and often redundant), yet basically promising the same perversions of morality and principles of a sound society.
LGBTQ : As President, Biden will secure the passage of the Equality Act [under which faithful Christians will be persecuted for obeying God and conscience]. Biden will make enactment of the Equality Act during his first 100 days as President a top legislative priority.
Religious freedom is a fundamental American value. But...The Trump-Pence Administration has deliberately and systematically attempted to gut protections for the LGBTQ+ community by carving out broad religious exemptions to existing nondiscrimination laws and policies across federal agencies. Biden will reverse Trumps policies misusing these broad exemptions...
Ban so-called conversion therapy. Hundreds of thousands of LGBTQ+ individuals have been subjected to so-called conversion therapy during their lifetime, which Biden knows is deeply harmful, highly unscientific, and often leads to trauma.
Work to end suicide among young LGBTQ+ individuals. Lesbian, gay, and bisexual young people are five times more likely to attempt suicide than their heterosexual peers.
He will immediately reverse the discriminatory actions of the Trump-Pence Administration ...Donald Trump and Mike Pence have given hate against LGBTQ+ individuals safe harbor, and rolled back critical protections for the LGBTQ+ community...denying LGBTQ+ people access to critical health care, proposing policies allowing federally funded homeless shelters to turn away transgender people and federally funded adoption agencies to reject same-sex couples...
The Trump-Pence Administration has proposed allowing shelters to discriminate against transgender people when determining their accommodations, for example, by forcing transgender women to sleep and use the bathroom in the same place as men. As President, Biden will secure the passage of the Equality Act, ensuring..
Decriminalize HIV exposure and transmission laws. In 2018, 26 states in America had HIV exposure criminal laws. These laws perpetuate discrimination and stigma towards people with HIV/AIDS, and there is simply no scientific basis for them.
Biden believes every transgender or non-binary person should have the option of changing their gender marker to M, F, or X on government identifications, passports, and other documentation. He will support state and federal efforts to allow for this accurate representation.
Guaranteeing transgender students have access to facilities based on their gender identity...restore transgender students access to sports, bathrooms, and locker rooms in accordance with their gender identity.
Ensure blood donation procedures are based on...support [consideration of] revising the donor questionnaires so that they focus on more refined and specific behavioral criteria,..He will expand access to mental health resources by doubling the number of psychologists, guidance counselors, nurses, social workers, and other health professionals in our schools.
Defending Equal Benefits to Same-Sex Couples... Biden voted against a constitutional amendment defining marriage as between one man and one woman.
Ensure coverage for comprehensive care for LGBTQ+ Americans. Biden will ensure that LGBTQ+ individuals have full access to all appropriate health care treatments and resources. This includes covering care related to transitioningincluding gender confirmation surgery. And, it includes covering HIV treatment and prevention. Biden will ensure that federal health plans provide coverage for PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis) and PEP (post-exposure prophylaxis)lifesaving, highly effective HIV prevention medications. Fortunately, thanks to a recommendation by the U.S. Preventive Task Force (USPSTF), PrEP must be covered without cost-sharing starting in 2021. Biden will ensure other costs, including for lab and clinical services, are covered.
Rescind the un-American travel and refugee bans, also referred to as Muslim bans. The Trump-Pence Administrations anti-Muslim bias hurts our economy and betrays our values. Prohibiting Muslims, including those from the LGBTQ+ community, from entering the country is morally wrong, and there is no intelligence or evidence that suggests it makes our nation more secure.
While LGBTQ+ youth are estimated to make up only 7-9% of the youth in the United States, they make up about 20% of youth incarcerated in juvenile detention or correctional facilities....Biden will create a new $100 million pilot program to encourage states... Biden will expand the federal investment in programs that create safe, nurturing spaces for children to spend time when not in school.
Reduce LGBTQ+ interactions with the criminal justice system....funding a $20 billion grant program encouraging states to move from incarceration and toward prevention and rehabilitation.
Biden will restore full implementation of President Obamas executive order prohibiting discrimination by federal contractors, which Trump has undermined. The Biden Administration will also work with civil rights leaders to develop and institute implicit bias training programs for federal workers and contractors to address discrimination based on race, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression,
Collect data necessary to fully support the LGBTQ+ community.
Reverse the transgender military ban...Biden will direct the U.S. Department of Defense to allow transgender service members to...receive needed medical treatment...
. In November 2019, the Trump-Pence Administration proposed a rule that will permit adoption and foster care agencies that discriminate against LGBTQ+ families to receive government funding. As President, Biden will repeal the rule, if implemented, and work to ensure that qualified families are not discriminated against based on sexual orientation, gender identity or expression,
Enforce and strengthen the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd, Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act....he will strengthen enforcement of the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd, Jr. Act by increasing funding for anti-bias and hate crimes investigation training. He will work with Congress to pass both the Jabara-Heyer NO HATE Act, which will improve hate crime reporting and data collection, and the End Racial and Religious Profiling Act, which will prohibit law enforcement from targeting a person based on actual or perceived race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, gender, gender identity, or sexual orientation.
A Biden Administration will seek to advance culturally appropriate public information campaigns to promote LGBTQ+ human rights and reduce biases,
Ensure that human rights are at the center of our engagement with the world....Advance an inclusive human rights agenda that promotes LGBTQ+ rights by integrating them within a broad human rights agenda....The Biden Administration will aggressively use pressure tactics, as appropriate, including sanctions (such as Global Magnitsky sanctions and visa bans) to respond to violations of human rights, including LGBTQ+ rights.
Work with Congress to enact legislation like the GLOBE Act currently before the Housewhich will permanently make upholding LGBTQ+ rights a priority of the foreign policy of the United States... - https://joebiden.com/lgbtq/ _______________________________________________
Heath care [government dependence]: Health care is a right... Expanding access to contraception and protect the constitutional right to an abortion. The Affordable Care Act made historic progress by ensuring access to free preventive care, including contraception. The Biden Plan will build on that progress.
Biden will work to codify Roe v. Wade, and his Justice Department will do everything in its power to stop the rash of state laws that so blatantly violate the constitutional right to an abortion, such as so-called TRAP laws, parental notification requirements, mandatory waiting periods, and ultrasound requirements.
Restore federal funding for Planned Parenthood. As president, Biden will reissue guidance specifying that states cannot refuse Medicaid funding for Planned Parenthood and other providers that refer for abortions or provide related information and reverse the Trump Administrations rule preventing Planned Parenthood and certain other family planning programs from obtaining Title X funds.
Defending health care protections for all, regardless of gender, gender identity, or sexual orientation.
Doubling Americas investment in community health centers.
Achieving mental health parity and expanding access to mental health care.
The Biden Plan will make health care a right by getting rid of capital gains tax loopholes for the super wealthy. Today, the very wealthy pay a tax rate of just 20% on long-term capital gains. -https://joebiden.com/healthcare/ _________________________________________
Housing : Bidens $640 billion investment in Americas housing is paid for by raising taxes on corporations and large financial institutions.

Immigration : Biden will propose a four-year, $4 billion package of assistance for the region, with aid linked to governments in the Northern Triangle.
Increase the number of refugees we welcome into the country. With more than 70 million displaced people in the world today, this is a moment that demands American leadership. He will set the annual global refugee admissions cap to 125,000, and seek to raise it over time commensurate with our responsibility, our values, and the unprecedented global need.
Wage and Unions:
Increase the federal minimum wage to $15..and...eliminating the tipped minimum wage. This increase would include workers who arent currently earning the minimum wage, like the farmworkers who grow our food and domestic workers
A co-sponsor of the original Employee Free Choice Act, Biden supports workers choosing to form a union if a majority signs authorization cards empowering a union to represent them. He will go beyond the PRO Act by allowing workers to use this process, called card check, as an initial option for forming a union...
Ban state laws prohibiting unions from collecting dues or comparable payments from all workers who benefit from union representation that unions are legally obligated to provide. Currently more than half of all states have in place these so-called right to work laws...

Double the number of psychologists, guidance counselors, nurses, social workers, and other health professionals in our schools..President Biden will make an unprecedented investment in school mental health professionals in order to double the number of psychologists, guidance counselors, nurses, social workers, and other health professionals employed in our schools, and partner with colleges to expand the pipeline of these professionals [among other things, thereby likely fostering changing genders, at tax-payer expense].
Help teachers and other educators pay off their student loans.
Biden will include in federal infrastructure legislation funding specifically for improving public school buildings. First and foremost, these funds will be used to address health risks. Additional funds will be used to build cutting-edge, energy-efficient, innovative schools with technology and labs to prepare our students for the jobs of the future.

Theres an estimated $23 billion annual funding gap between white and non-white school districts today, and gaps persist between high- and low-income districts as well. Biden will work to close this gap by nearly tripling Title I funding, which goes to schools serving a high number of children from low-income families.

I challenge you to a Push-Up Contest.
What is the donation amount that actually *costs* them to receive it, due to handling fees, etc?
Something like 25 cents?
I think it is a percentage, like of 2.2% to 7% on the donation, and standard credit card processing fee of 2.5%, or $0.30 payment fee.
We should all donate 30 cents.
Joe Biden is starting to get almost as bad as Pelosi.
Biden is possessed by a demon who’s extremely bad at puppetry, hence the erratic gaffe-o-matic routine that dementia doesn’t explain. Or viewed from the scientific angle he’s so steeped in twisted liberal orthodoxy he’s lost all grasp of morality and possibly reality itself.
Either way - he’s EVIL.
Sadly, one of many proxy servants for the devil. And he invokes science as on his side.
Biden promises to make enactment of the Equality Act during his first 100 days as President a top legislative priority, under which faithful Christians will be persecuted for obeying God and conscience. Biden states that while religious freedom is a fundamental American value, he opposes broad religious exemptions to existing nondiscrimination laws and policies across federal agencies and which he promises to reverse.
Biden intends to ban so-called conversion therapy, which is akin to Islamic outlawing of conversion, while promising to work to end suicide among young LGBTQ+ individuals. who are five times more likely to attempt suicide than their heterosexual peers.
Biden also charges that Donald Trump and Mike Pence have given “hate against LGBTQ+ individuals” safe harbor, and sites such policies are requiring transgender “women” to sleep and use bathrooms according to what they biologically are.
In addition, Biden promises to decriminalize HIV exposure and transmission laws, under which such failures as not informing a partner of their positive HIV status, or in donating blood, or intentionally attempting to transmit HIV is a crime. However, although sodomy is the means of HIV transmission in over 80% of cases among men (https://peacebyjesuscom.blogspot.com/2019/10/negative-effects-of-homosexual.html), yet Biden asserts that there is simply no scientific basis for HIV exposure and transmission laws.
Moreover, Biden believes every “transgender or non-binary person” should be able to change their “gender marker to M, F, or X on government identifications, passports, and other documentation,” as well as use whatever facilities they feel corresponds to their gender identity. Including transgender students playing sports and using bathrooms and locker rooms.
Biden will also not permit adoption and foster care agencies that choose not to allow adoption by LGBTQ+ families to receive government funding.
Biden further promises to “ensure coverage for comprehensive care for LGBTQ+ Americans...to all appropriate health care treatments and resources...including gender confirmation surgery.” As well as for HIV treatment and prevention, that of PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis) which cost about $2,000 a day, and would include coverage for lifetime treatment for HIV, which coast approximately 400,000 dollars, both of which Medicaid coverage presently includes. Currently PrEP will be covered without cost-sharing starting in 2021.
Biden will also reverse the transgender military ban and rescind the prohibition against LGBTQ+ Muslims from entering the country, and permanently make upholding LGBTQ+ rights a priority of the foreign policy of the United States.
In addition, Biden intends to “advance culturally appropriate public information campaigns to promote LGBTQ+ human rights and reduce biases,” and “develop and institute implicit bias training programs for federal workers and contractors to address discrimination based on race, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression.” (https://joebiden.com/lgbtq/)
You mean the analogy btwn outlawing conversion from "gay" to "straight" (via therapy) and outlawing conversion from Muslim to Christian (etc.) via evangelical counsel?
What Biden proposes and vows is essentially not much different than radical Sanders, but is somewhat less extensive and straightforward (while being verbose and often redundant), yet basically promising the same perversions of morality and principles of a sound society.
