Politically Speaking – March 23, 2021
Where do I start this week?
1) Crisis at the border
2) Biden calls Putin a killer
3) Homeland Security takes on the surge at the southern border
4) Biden calls Harris the President
Just when you think it can’t get any crazier, it gets crazier!
So to start with, who is the commander-in-chief, the President? According to Joe Biden, he’s not sure who is. Last Thursday while celebrating the U.S. nearing 100 million COVID-19 vaccine doses, Biden said, “Now when President Harris and I took a virtual tour of a vaccine center in Arizona, one of the nurses giving vaccinations said each shot was like administering a dose of hope.” And trust, it’s not the first time Biden has given Harris the Presidential title. Does he know something we don’t or does he just not know?
During the campaign last year, while Biden stayed in his basement, Trump accused Biden of being in mental decline. Trump claimed that if Biden was elected the Democrats, in time, would invoke the 25th Amendment to replace Biden with Harris. I couldn’t agree more. However, in my opinion, neither deserves a seat in the oval office.
Biden did set a number of new records, starting with the first day, by costing thousands of good paying union jobs.
Moving on to the crisis on the border. New Homeland Security chief Alejandro Mayorkas was grilled by some lawmakers last Wednesday amid the surge at the southern border. Thanks to the Biden Administration there’s been a record increase in the crossings by illegals, including unaccompanied migrant children (17 years and younger), which is overwhelming the border patrol resources in the southwest. In his opening statement to the Homeland Security Committee, he reiterated the situation was very serious but stopped short of calling it a crisis.
Last week alone a record number of minors in border patrol custody reached thousands. The Biden administration might as well have put up “All Illegals Welcome” signs at the border. But Biden, Schumer, Pelosi and others are blaming who else but their favorite scapegoat, Trump. This surge is all his fault. Seriously, is anyone really buying into to what the Swamp is saying?
At the present time, it’s been reported that an illegal unaccompanied child is crossing the border every two minutes. The reality is the U.S. is facing the biggest illegal immigrant surge in 20 years.
So, Biden, what’s your plan to control the surge, or should we ask Harris?
On to Putin’s response to Biden calling him a killer. So much for diplomacy. During an interview with ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos, Biden called Putin a killer and continued to say Putin will pay the price.
Meanwhile, Russia erupted in a fury. The Kremlin described Biden’s response to the interview question as “very bad” and recalled its ambassador to “analyze” what needs to be done about the country’s relations.”
Putin all but called Mr. Biden a killer himself and challenged him to a debate. In addition, Putin wished Biden “good health.” At a White House press conference Press Secretary Jen Psaki, the “circle back girl,” was asked if Biden regretted his somewhat undiplomatic characterization of Mr. Putin and she said, “Nope, the President gave a direct answer to a direct question.” Ms. Psaki repeated warnings that sanctions and other actions against Russia are coming “in weeks, not months.”
In my opinion, that was a direct threat that only a fool would make.
I was taught early in life, “You never poke the bear” Excuse the pun!
So with all that said, according to Fox News, at this time the White House says Biden is “quite busy” after Putin’s invite to Biden for a “live” chat. By the way, Biden turned down the invitation. Imagine that!
I was also taught years ago be careful what you ask for; you may get it!
Until next week, God help us! It’s time to start impeachment before we are completely destroyed.
