Collateral Damage

In just 20 months, we went from being an energy-exporting, border-securing, economy-booming nation to teetering on collapse.

Definition (Wikipedia): “Collateral damage is any death, injury, or other damage inflicted that is an incidental result of an activity. Originally coined by military operations, it is now used also in non-military contexts.”

It’s been a spectacle to watch what the Biden administration has been able to accomplish in just 20 months. We went from being an energy-exporting, border-securing, economy-booming nation to teetering on collapse.

Two years ago, enemies like China, North Korea, Russia, and Iran feared us. Our military was being rebuilt after the previous administration’s forced reductions. Unemployment for minorities and women was the lowest ever recorded and businesses were investing back home.

Joe Biden and his merry band of social justice warriors have saved us from ourselves! Apparently, our prosperity was dooming the planet, say John Kerry, Al Gore, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, all experts in global weather patterns and predictions. Okay, so Al Gore hasn’t been very successful, but this time he knows he’s got it right. America’s economy needs to be destroyed so the world can live!

Unfortunately, open borders, destroying America’s energy production, and pushing for green energy have great collateral damage.

With open borders, millions of illegal aliens are flooding the country, and we’re paying the price for it. Hundreds of illegal aliens have died trying to get to America. Thousands, maybe tens of thousands, are being sex-trafficked into our country. Many of these women and children are raped and abused by the cartels, even after arriving in our country. Minority jobs are being taken by illegals who will work for less, and an unknown number of criminals and terrorists are entering our country going who knows where.

For the past 3-4 years, drug overdoses have skyrocketed, most of it due to fentanyl, which is produced in China and smuggled across our borders. So 100,000-plus overdoses is an acceptable cost to keep the cartels and China prospering. In my opinion, fentanyl made in China and the Wuhan plague, also from China, are literally acts of war against America. China has declared war on the American people.

China won’t suffer any consequences for this. The Biden crime family is too deep into the pockets of the communist regime for any of this to be dealt with. China can even threaten to shoot down Nancy Pelosi’s plane and we hear crickets from the White House.

Biden is destroying the energy sector of our nation, as he said he would, so we can import oil from Iran, Venezuela, and Saudi Arabia. If fossil fuels are bad, why look to nations antagonistic to us for oil? We produce it cheaper and cleaner than anyone. And Biden destroyed good high-paying union jobs, but the unions still stand by him!

Your family’s safety, security, and well-being are the furthest thing from Joe Biden’s mind, or what is left of it. Baby formula shortages, higher energy and food costs, higher taxes, and less safety from criminals and foreign enemies are baked into the mix of Biden’s America. We’re just collateral damage so the Biden family and his minions can prosper. Elections have consequences!

Something to think about.
