Was Joe Biden’s new campaign slogan “Build Back Better” actually plagiarized from somewhere else?
By now you have probably heard about Joe Biden’s new campaign slogan. Even though he often has a very difficult time saying it, “Build Back Better” is plastered all over his official campaign website. I think that his campaign team wanted something forwarding looking and that sounded optimistic, but it isn’t exactly original. In fact, the Trump campaign has pointed out that UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson was using the slogan long before Biden ever did…
If you thought Joe Biden’s clunky, tax-and-spend slogan “Build Back Better” sounds like unoriginal, political consultant-speak, you’re right. In fact, U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson is using the same slogan and was doing so before Joe Biden stole it.
You can watch video of both politicians using the “Build Back Better” slogan right here. Considering the issues that Biden has had with plagiarism in the past, his team probably should have gone with another choice.
Of course the idea of “building back better” did not originate with Boris Johnson either. Approximately 2,700 years ago, the leaders of Israel decided that they would “build back better” after the Assyrians invaded. The following is what Isaiah 9:10 says in the Modern English Version…
“The bricks are fallen down,
but we will build with hewn stones;
the sycamores are cut down,
but we will replace them with cedars.”
As Jonathan Cahn has pointed out, some of our top politicians quoted that passage in the aftermath of 9/11 because they thought that it was an inspirational way of saying that America would rebuild too.
But when the leaders of Israel expressed their desire to “build back better”, it was actually an act of defiance. Instead of humbling themselves and turning from their evil ways, they decided that they could make their society great again without God’s help.
When my wife heard Biden’s new slogan, she immediately recognized the parallel. In the United States today, both political parties are boldly proclaiming that they will restore America to greatness, but meanwhile just about every form of wickedness that you can possibly imagine is exploding all around us.
Election Day is now less than a month away, and both sides continue to insist that they will be able to turn our nation around if they win.
But an increasing number of Americans are becoming convinced that no turnaround is coming any time soon, and they are preparing for the worst. In fact, some people are going to wild extremes in order to insulate themselves from what they believe is going to happen. On Friday, I came across an article that discussed the fact that brokers that sell private islands are “overwhelmed” with demand right now…
Calls and emails come in at all times of day and night. They no longer concern fun or prestige. Instead they focus on fresh water and solar panels. These were not the inquiries they had grown used to.
The island brokers are overwhelmed.
Wouldn’t it be nice to have your own private island?
In the old days, very wealthy people would buy them as vacation destinations, but now they are mainly being viewed as potential survival properties…
