One wonders if Joe Biden understands American values

0

Recently, Joe Biden warned us that “defending our values ​​is not without costs”. But what values ​​is Biden talking about when he says this?

Joe Biden’s terrible and inexcusable missteps have him looking for ways to distract from the many grotesque failures of his administration. These failures leave America vulnerable to the chaos that is happening around the world.

The war between Russia and Ukraine will dramatically further accelerate economic hardship (inflation, shortages, “supply chain” disruptions, etc.). Biden would like to “soften us up” for some of the economic “tough hits” we will face in the days and months ahead. Use manipulation tactics and “our values” talking points

Biden hopes to unite national pride and a team spirit amid real economic pain and uncertainty. He reminds Americans that “defending our values ​​is not without cost”. His statement totally dodges questions such as “What is our values?” and “Is Joe Biden helping or hindering the defense of our values?”

People from around the world still come to America to embrace America’s commitment to “freedom and justice for all.” Seen through the lens of collective zeal for freedom, however, government-mandated vaccination policies and mandatory mask-wearing are certainly not compatible with “our values.” Yet Biden is pursuing these onerous mandates despite growing scientific evidence showing they are far more harmful than helpful.

America’s collective desire for freedom and justice extends to national sovereignty and border politics. But open and insecure borders that encourage illegal migration do not promote freedom or justice, neither for Americans nor for those who are victims of human/sex trafficking. Weak border policies also greatly accelerate drug and arms trafficking. Needless to say, these policies are also not consistent with “our values”. So what exactly does Joe mean by “our values?”

A recent poll confirms that Americans believe that “our values” include protecting national sovereignty via our borders, something that should come before going around the world to protect other nations’ borders. It’s hard to fathom, but Biden is more zealous in protecting Ukraine’s sovereignty (including sending US border agents to help protect Ukraine’s borders), instead of protecting the sovereignty and security of American borders. Americans want to see a strong commitment to safeguarding sovereignty and “democracy” at home before becoming the global police and champions of “democracy” elsewhere. Put our own house in order first – this reflects the heart of “our values!”

We also view energy independence as a core American value. Biden’s policies severely limiting oil and gas drilling in America have weakened us and made us needlessly vulnerable to America’s enemies. Importing energy from nefarious nation states seeking to undermine America’s freedom – this is not one of the “our values.” Policies that produce energy independence to meet the demands of a dynamic economy while reducing fuel costs are “our values!” Biden appears willfully blind and ignorant of this American value, embracing irrationality and recklessness instead.

Notably, “our values” also require security in civil society. The escalation in crime encouraged by “no bail reforms” and the “defunding” of law enforcement is creating chaotic and dangerous communities. These policies are not “our values!”

Safe streets and communities where children can play without being threatened are quintessential American traditions and values. Yet Biden’s “soft on crime” initiatives (bolstered by his political party and supporters) have turned America’s streets and neighborhoods into utterly dangerous combat zones. With Biden’s policies demonstrating leniency and bias toward criminals — ignoring the safety concerns of law-abiding citizens — America does not stand for “freedom and justice for all.”7 209 19 |  One wonders if Joe Biden understands American values ​​|  news from paradise

Ironically, Joe Biden has a prime opportunity to confirm “our values.” If he is sincere, he will focus on immediate policies like securing US national sovereignty (via borders). He would do this before securing the borders of aligned partners in foreign lands.

It would also immediately focus on stopping the growing cartel activities that rob us of basic decency via human/sex/drug/weapons trafficking. With the “stroke of a pen,” Biden would also advance American values ​​by immediately resetting all drilling permits so that America can once again become energy independent (like we were when he became president). Finally, he would ensure that his supporters and his political party renounce and denounce the “no bail” and “defund police” movements. These policy measures would all reflect “our values.”

Americans are not stupid. It doesn’t work to use an insincere pablum to supposedly “soften the blow” of impending economic chaos and to encourage collective teamwork to get through it when there is no genuine principled desire to defend our cause. real values.

We must uphold American values, including sovereign national borders, energy independence, and safe communities. But unfortunately, Biden’s policies reveal that these are not his values. His statement made it clear that his the values ​​will indeed come with a very high “cost”. But the fact that Americans collectively pay high (and entirely avoidable) costs is not an acceptable answer when the “values” are not ours. Biden must abandon his destructive policies and embrace true American values.
