The first time I saw Build Back Better in a Biden ad I could swear I had heard it before but it sounded like broken English...not something you would just say. So I decided to look it up. Now, here is where it gets weird.

Trump wants to Keep America Great. Biden wants to Build Back Better. Why would that be?

Building Back Better is a global recovery template that first popped up in the mid 2000's. In 2015, while Biden was VP, the UN decided to accept this framework for use after a disaster. The document is as Progressive as it comes.




During the negotiation period for the Sendai Framework, the concept of "Build Back Better" was proposed by the Japanese delegation as a holistic concept as follows: "The principle of 'Build Back Better' is generally understood to use the disaster as a trigger to create more resilient nations and societies than before. This was through the implementation of well-balanced disaster risk reduction measures, including physical restoration of infrastructure, revitalisation of livelihood and economy/industry, and the restoration of local culture and environment". This holistic concept was fully agreed among the negotiation delegates of each state and embedded into the Sendai Framework as one of the most important concepts

After the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction was finalised, the indicators for checking achievement were defined with the terminology of "Build Back Better" defined as: "The use of the recovery, rehabilitation, and reconstruction phases after a disaster to increase the resilience of nations and communities through integrating disaster risk reduction measures into the restoration of physical infrastructure and societal systems, and into the revitalization of livelihoods, economies and the environment. Annotation: The term “societal” will not be interpreted as a political system of any country."


Use the disaster, as a trigger, to make the needed changes for a country. Risk Reduction measures. Now, you see companies in the US and around the world using this idea also. Google it..suddenly it is a catch phrase about coming back from COVID.

Look at what some CEO's are saying



“Our world was a dangerous and troubled place even before COVID-19 took hold,” said Paul Polman, former CEO of Unilever, who is now working on transforming the structural impediments to sustainable business. “We have the chance to rebuild a fairer, greener society. But to do so, we need courageous business leaders who are willing to act, individually and collectively. It’s why I applaud the signatories of this letter. No company alone can solve the problems we face. But together, we can begin to challenge the orthodoxies which got us here. Together we can help the world change.”


I mean, this stuff is the Green New Deal and the Heroes Act all rolled into one...




While governments around the world debate economic and social policies designed to jumpstart their economies in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, the “Build it Better” framework includes six key imperatives for public and private sector leaders to guide innovation of public policy as well as corporate and financial structures to accelerate the progress of the purpose-first economy. These imperatives include:

Recognize the purpose-first sector.

Carefully craft incentives and policies.
Incentivize innovations of financial products, risk assessment, valuation models, and ratings.
Design for a safe, educated, and healthy society.
Leave no one behind.
Enable a supportive ecosystem.

Rebuild society. It is more than just localized. An idea on how to recover it is a roadmap to what the Progressives in the country want right now and Biden is riding on those words and ideas.

or, as stated here in the we forum, how to reinvent capitalism. Global Agendas...

A green recovery...



An inclusive and green recovery is vital if we are to create more resilient economies and a world in which business can thrive, not just now but long into the future. There are positive signs that, in some countries, bailouts and stimulus packages have been designed with these criteria in mind, but this is by no means universal. It seems inevitable that some governments will repeat the mistakes made in the aftermath of the 2007-8 financial crisis when, in many cases, the policies adopted post-crisis exacerbated inequality and locked in unsustainable outcomes.


while still pushing the end of fossil fuels as well as George Floyd.




Thanks to the ongoing pandemic, the world is off-balance – and it will remain so for years to come. Far from settling into a 'new normal', we should expect a COVID-19 domino effect, triggering further disruptions – positive as well as negative ­– over the decade ahead.

The wave of civil unrest that spread across America and beyond recently may be one example; it seems likely that the pandemic contributed to the context in which anger and despair boiled over into outrage and unrest following the death of George Floyd. Other possible COVID-induced discontinuities ahead range from a full-blown financial crisis to a step change in the rate of the global energy transition: some analysts now reckon that fossil fuel demand may have peaked in 2019 – for good.

The virus has highlighted many vulnerabilities – within businesses, supply chains, economies, health systems and political institutions – that will need to be addressed in the post-crisis world. It has underscored the interconnectedness of our natural, social and economic systems, and provided a stark reminder of the scale of systemic risks that can build up when we allow weaknesses and negative impacts to accumulate over time.


Biden is not wanting to do anything for our country but take it back to the Obama/Bush/Clinton era and usher in a new decade of Progressive Globalism.

Build Back Better...No way Sleepy Joe...the reason that the Globalist want us back is to fund all of these projects and changes and after 3 years we can see when we take away that aid we are still here and able to use it on us as a country to be who we have always been. A unique leader at the forefront and not simply paying the bills of the bankrupt.

And Trump is wanting to bring us back to the 1950's era, without the taxes.

We have a choice to go progressive or regressive.

IT's up to you. It's your vote.

Kumbaya which is imposed on us - great (not).

I find it interesting that some folks (elite more often than not) take it as their business to define how the rest 99.99% should live, think and breath. At which point of their failed personal lives, did they come into the conviction, that they are the best to guide us thru ours?

So, even if those ideas they dole out might sound good to someone, I bet, there is nothing good coming down that road. Collective is only useful for slaughter.

I will take a 1950's nuclear family over the 2020's any day. Not regression but at the same time no need for change. There is nothing progressive about what they want.

Progressives promise and never deliver. Like Biden...and Kamala. Over 70 years of political experience and a big # burger between them both.

If there's one single person out there who thinks deep down that Biden could do anything to make this country better then they're retarded. There's a lust for power and control by politicians, and there's a lust for hate by those who follow the left wing ideology that have no idea what this country would become if a progressive ran the country. It was quickly on its way to hell until Trump won and reversed every policy introduced and passed by the previous administration and that's the only thing that saved us. That's another reason they hate Trump so much, they were right there on the edge of conforming this country into a progressive hellhole.

It won't be the utopia they hope it will be and they'll be the first low hanging fruit to be taken out first but are too stupid to see it.

Well that's odd, Sookie. I see nothing from the left except a push for segregating us like the 50's. Can you please elaborate more on how Trump is trying to take us back to the 50's? No taxes would be great, but he's never promised that.

That's why progs hated the 50's, the nuclear family was far better than the single parent homes, but kids grew up and joined the military and the parents raised children that were patriotic. That goes against everything the left stands for, minus the segregation part.

Joe and Kamala using the old trick of targeting things somebody has done or is doing and making it sound like it's their own idea 🤣🤣🤣🤣

So far today, they've used the tactic about 45 times 🤣🤣🤣🤣

When Donald Trump says let's "make America great AGAIN", what time frame do you think he's referring to?
Antebellum?

The future....at one time we were respected for our military, education, technological advances as well as being a forerunner and not just footing the bills so everyone else can get ahead.

Be best, build back better...

The alliteration coming out of Washington is all buh, buh, buh, buh...

Which sums it up quite nicely, actually.

"Build Back Better" is another back-door gaffe.

It means they're acknowledging Trump has already started the build back and they are worried it'll be seen by their own voters 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

What exactly do you mean that President Trump wants to take us back to the 1950's? What has he said or done that lead you to believe that?

I also find odd, this intellectual falsehood that just because you refer to something as "progressive" automatically makes it a good thing--progress can be made in the wrong direction. That, in collusion with the thoughtless conclusion that anything that isn't this false "progression" is automatically "regressive", looks like the conclusion of a duped, brainwashed mind. You must somehow think this false expression--one often repeated by the brainwashed ilk--is supposed to mean anything other than mindless rhetoric. Voting for Trump is not regressive, but simply progression in another direction, away from the mindless, hate and fear-driven masses who stopped thinking for themselves.
