WASHINGTON, DC- Hey, but at least we don’t have to deal with anymore mean tweets, right? What we are dealing with is a systematic dismantling of our country, one reckless move at a time. If one didn’t know better, you would almost think it was deliberate.
Not so long ago, our hopeless, weak “leader” pronounced to the world that “America is back.” Weeks later, we are turning tail and running out of Afghanistan, leaving not only Afghan allies behind but also some Americans.
Our hasty ill-conceived retreat last week cost thirteen brave American heroes their lives, along with countless Afghans.
Town Hall reports that last week on Dan Bongino’s syndicated radio show, a guest asked a question—if Biden (and the Democrats for that matter) set out to intentionally destroy the United States of America, would they do anything different than what we have been subjected to over the past seven months?
The evidence is staggering.
Let’s cite some examples, courtesy of Town Hall, of how to destroy America. Every single one has been carried out by the Biden administration and Congress:
Open the southern border to any and all
Under President Trump, the US-Mexico border was virtually sealed, not perfect but nonetheless nearly completely closed.
The border wall was well underway and illegal immigration had been cut to near record-low levels. One of the first things Biden did was halt construction of the border wall, and overturn all of Trump’s border policies.
That resulted in opening the border to record numbers of illegals, including MS13 gang members, drug cartels, human traffickers and more concerning, the ability of potential terrorists from around the world to enter unabated.
And, while Americans are slammed with mask mandates and the threat of forced COVID vaccinations, COVID-positive aliens have been welcomed and scattered throughout the country. Fortunately in a rare moment of courage, the Supreme Court ruled Biden has to reimplement the Trump-era “Remain in Mexico program.”
Do everything you can to end energy independence
On January 19, 2021, the United States was energy independent, no longer relying on Middle East oil cartels and oligarchs under the title of OPEC to control the flow of energy.
Again one of Biden’s first actions was to halt construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline, directly putting over ten-thousand people out of work and affecting countless others who relied on the pipeline workers for their livelihoods.
Biden also halted drilling on federal lands, and once again got the U.S. engaged in the Paris Climate Accord, which unfairly punishes the U.S. while letting China and India, two of the world’s biggest polluters, off the hook.
He has also promised that all new cars sold in the United States in 2030 will have to be electric, without anywhere near sufficient infrastructure in place for such a scheme, including the capacity to generate the electricity for such a scheme.

Stoke racial hatred in a country already divided by Trump’s predecessor, Barack Obama
Critical race theory, virtually unheard of only a year ago, has come into the mainstream, legitimized by Biden, his administration and Congressional Democrats. Biden promised during his campaign and on inauguration day to “unify” the country, yet every undertaking has done the opposite.
Where Dr. Martin Luther King emphasized character as opposed to skin color, Biden and the Democrats have made everything about skin color.
They have bought into the anti-family, Marxist ideology of Black Lives Matter which fuels racial animus, demands reparations for individuals who were unaffected by past American sins, encourages discrimination in colleges and universities, and overall fuels distrust among races.
Hundreds of thousands of Americans lost their lives in the Civil War to fight against the exact thing being fomented by Biden and Democrats—racial division.
Make police the bad guys and lionize the criminals, don’t punish those who commit crime
As groups such as Black Lives Matter and Antifa ran rampant on the streets in the summer of 2020 unabated, with Biden and Democrats excusing their anarchist behavior, Biden and Democrats continue to obsess on the January 6 Capitol siege, where only one person—Trump supporter and unarmed Air Force Veteran Ashli Babbitt—was killed while remaining silent about the true anarchy taking place in cities from Portland to New York City.
Biden has remained silent as leftist district attorneys put into office courtesy of socialist George Soros money have refused to prosecute criminals while letting those jailed go free. Moreover, Biden and the Democrats are targeting law abiding citizens through their assault on the 2nd Amendment.
Continue to frighten Americans into obeying draconian mask measures and threaten lockdowns for their “safety”
With the knowledge that around 50% of Americans will just do what their told without question, Biden has reversed course on a previous promise that Americans who were vaccinated could free themselves from wearing face diapers and continually scaring people into submission; also suggesting to private businesses and corporations to force those who are not comfortable with getting vaccinated into doing so at risk of losing their jobs.
Moreover, set one set of rules for the subjects and another set of rules for the “ruling class”—see Nancy Pelosi, Gavin Newsom, Lori Lightfoot and others for examples.
Allow Congress to pass spending bills that will bankrupt future generations while creating government dependence and skyrocketing inflation
Since last year, Congress is on pace to add $10 trillion to our national debt, a majority of which is not paid for, under the guise of “COVID relief” and “infrastructure,” while a majority of those funds does neither. The so-called “infrastructure” bill spends little on that and directs most of the money toward Democratic utopia plans such as the “Green New Deal.”
The reckless spending has already resulted in skyrocketing inflation of around 5% and has hit everything across the board.
The Biden administration has also convinced Americans that it is more profitable to stay home and not work as tens of thousands of American businesses cannot find enough employees to maintain their regular hours.
Take federal control of elections under the misguided notion that voter integrity laws are “racist”
Biden and the Democrat support federalizing elections, removing control from states and municipalities in how elections are run, outlawing such common-sense and widely supported practices such as voter ID, and in essence codifying election fraud, despite federalizing elections is a clear violation of the Constitution.
Project abject weakness and ineptitude in the military in particular at a time of crisis
While military “leaders” such as Joint Chief’s Chairman Gen. Mark Milley and Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin concern themselves with woke ideology and projecting “white supremacy” as the greatest national security threat, our brave men and women in the military are hung out to dry in places such as Afghanistan.
The Administration’s ill-conceived withdrawal of American troops from Afghanistan had deadly consequences last week, when thirteen brave members of our Marines, Army and Navy were needlessly killed in a terrorist attack, with over 100 Afghan civilians killed.
Eighteen members of our military were injured along with hundreds of Afghan civilians.
“The buck stops here,” made famous by President Harry Truman was nowhere to be found, at least practically last week as Biden said the words but then equivocated and tried to lay the blame on former President Trump.
However Biden and the Pentagon botched the withdrawal, removing American military assets before evacuating American citizens and Afghan allies in an inept, ridiculous move that even novices knew was incoherent.
Moreover, by putting “security” in the hands of the Taliban, whom we have been fighting against for nearly 20 years was a bizarre, mind-boggling move. Instead of taking leadership as what is supposed to be the world’s preeminent superpower, Biden and the Pentagon projected profound weakness that has made our country a laughingstock in places such as Beijing and Moscow.
All of this ineptitude and weakness was there for all to see during the campaign. Biden rarely, if ever came out of his basement bunker and when he did, it was primarily to travel perhaps an hour or two out of Wilmington, Delaware for an hour or two and then retreat back to Wilmington and call a lid for the day.
However a complicit press gave Biden a pass because…well he wasn’t Donald Trump.
A few “mean tweets” here and there didn’t negate the fact that Donald Trump was a doer.
Prior to China unleashing the coronavirus on the world (whether on purpose or accidentally), the American economic machine was rolling…gas prices were the lowest in years, America was energy independent, when the pandemic struck, he implemented “Operation Warp Speed” which got not one, not two, but three vaccines to market in less than nine months.
Taxes were lowered for a majority of Americans and small businesses.
Moreover, our enemies knew that if we were struck, the response would be fast, and it would be furious…Trump would not have waited six hours to address the nation and he would not have waited two days to initiate a response. America would have hit back, and it would have hit back hard.
What do we have now? We have a weak, frail, mentally declining senior citizen who projects none of what America needs in this time of crisis.
His speech on Thursday after the attack on Kabul airport inspired no confidence, no resolve, and no security for the American people. He was in fact barely awake, more like he was speaking to his grandchildren instead of the American people at a time of crisis.
We saw it…Russia saw it…China saw it…and ISIS saw it. Write it down…we will get hit again…and this time it may be a hell of a lot closer to home.
