Beneficial Accomplishments of Joe Biden provides readers with satirical conservative commentary on President Biden’s lack of achievement in office. What inspired you to write this book?
I had been feeling helpless as I have been watching what has been happening to our country. I didn’t want my grandkids to someday say, “Why didn’t you try to do anything?”.
What was the creative process like to bring this book together?
As your review stated, the concept of basically an empty book isn’t a new idea. One of my daughters had given me a book titled “Husbands I have known and liked”. That book kept catching my eye and making me laugh. I felt like so many of us are so upset about what is happening these days that we all needed something to make us laugh a little.
What is a common misconception you feel people have about U.S. politics?
Some people seem to think when they are watching the news, they are finding out what is happening in the world. The truth is, the news media presents not just the stories they want people to hear, but from the point of view they want them to have. If one point of view is all you hear, it is hard to think any other way.
It is hard for people to change, especially as they get older. Older people that have been liberals their whole lives, sometimes don’t realize how much liberal policy has changed over the years. People may have been liberal when they were young for example, because they wanted to make sure all people were being treated fairly. These days, liberal policy is the opposite of treating people fairly.
Young people that are liberal don’t seem to know anything else, since that is what the schools have been teaching them.
And when I hear talk about “Man-made, catastrophic climate change”, it reminds me of the ancient stories of rulers telling their people that they need to make sacrifices to them in order to make it rain. It is a tale as old as time, “Give me your money and I will give you good weather”. It is amazing to me that people still fall for it.
What is the next book that you are working on and when will it be available?
No idea. But when I wrote each of my books, I didn’t plan on writing any of them until the day I got the idea, and then I couldn’t quit until I had it done, so I expect that if I write another, that is likely to be the way it happens.

When Joe Biden won the presidential election in November of 2020, it was an election that saw the country at its most divisive point in generations. Since taking office in January, opinion has remained divided as to his success in the role. How has he done so far? Have things gotten better or worse? Have campaign promises been fulfilled or even addressed? The list of achievements might surprise you.
Beneficial Accomplishments of Joe Biden, by BB Denson, is a political satire detailing the list of things that have been done by the Biden administration. Or, to be more precise, the lack thereof. Covering subjects such as education, free speech, American job stability, and race relations, just to name a few, Denson makes it clear that in the past 11 months, the output of Joe Biden’s presidency has been underwhelming, to say the least. With a few snarky asides referencing previous presidents and their own achievements, the chapters leave no doubt as to what Denson thinks about number 46. Following a pattern that has often been used in satirical “informational” or how-to books, this one effectively uses an old trick on a new subject to entertaining effect.
This book is definitely worth a few chuckles and has given me a new perspective on current politics and political satire. Author BB Denson does well to make her point clear here, even though there is not a lot of substance behind it. (An ironic comment honestly, since that is the point of the book itself.) I was a thrown off by the empty pages. But don’t worry, it’s part of the satire, and once I got it I couldn’t stop laughing.
Beneficial Accomplishments of Joe Biden is funny, poignant and well worth the short read.
