The Biden Administration is arguably the most overtly, unapologetically corrupt and scandal-ridden in American history. It’s unprecedented. Richard Nixon was forced to resign over far less—Watergate. Ronald Reagan was politically damaged in his second term by the Iran-Contra scandal. And George H. W. Bush arguably lost reelection for reneging on his famous promise, “Read my lips: no new taxes.” They were all Republicans.
But even Bill Clinton and Barack Obama attempted to conceal their scandals and radicalism—compared to the Biden Administration, which has yet to “face the music” for a single thing. Clinton was impeached (but not removed) for committing perjury and obstruction of justice. Even Van Jones, Obama’s “green jobs czar” was forced to resign after a video surfaced of Jones describing Republicans as “assholes.”
While Clinton survived impeachment and Obama got away with much worse—“Fast and Furious,” IRS targeting Tea Party groups, and the bogus Benghazi spin, for example—neither administrations’ scandals were as fast, furious, or constant as those exhibited by the Biden Administration. The Biden Administration, unlike any before, has managed to transform its scandals into an effective strategy—intentionally engaging in them in order to overwhelm the American people and escape accountability.
The Biden Administration is the arsonist administration—setting one fire after another to render the American people frozen, indecisive, and overwhelmed. Let’s just look at the revelations of the last month.
Less than 48 hours after a deadly suicide bombing outside the Kabul airport left 13 American service members dead, the Biden Administration authorized a drone strike in retaliation against two “high-profile” ISIS-K members and wounded a third. Well, at least that’s what we were told.
“They were ISIS-K planners and facilitators,” Pentagon Press Secretary John Kirby announced. Yet Kirby refused during the August 28 press conference to release the names of the ISIS-K planners “killed.” In the same press conference, Major General Hank Taylor emphatically declared, “we know of zero civilian casualties.”
The retaliatory strike came just as Biden was drowning in failure, facing increasing pressure from the media and the American people to explain his administration’s undeniable and inexplicable failures in withdrawing from Afghanistan—a move that left $85 billion in U.S. arms and equipment in the hands of the Taliban, as well as countless American citizens turned hostages. The horrific murder of the 13 American servicemembers in Kabul only solidified Biden’s standing as one of the worst presidents in American history.
But despite it all, Biden was determined to give a self-congratulatory speech on August 31, announcing that he had successfully ended the “war” in Afghanistan. In light of his abject failures, he needed something concrete to celebrate—to distract and deflect from his inexplicable, irrational, and unjustifiable decisions. In his August 31 speech, Biden proudly declared, “We struck ISIS-K remotely, days after they murdered 13 of our service members and dozens of innocent Afghans. And to ISIS-K: We are not done with you yet.”
But Biden lied, as did Kirby and Taylor. Not only did the drone attack not kill two “high profile” ISIS-K planners and facilitators, it killed 10 innocent Afghan civilians, including seven children.
Nearly a month later, on September 17, the Pentagon was forced to admit to killing 10 Afghan civilians, calling it a “tragic outcome.” But they only admitted it because New York Times reporter Evan Hill reported the story on September 10. Biden murdered 10 innocent Afghan civilians, including seven children, and then lied about it so that he could claim success.
But conveniently, just as this scandal broke, it was quickly replaced with a new scandal.
On September 14, four days after the Times broke the story of the murdered Afghan civilians, news broke that General Mark Milley had potentially committed treason. According to Peril, by Bob Woodward and Robert Costa, Milley told Chinese General Li Zuocheng in a private phone call in October 2020 that he would warn China in the event of any likely U.S. attack. But before the American people could digest the severity of Milley’s unprecedented act, yet another scandal broke.
On September 18, just four days after the Milley scandal dominated the news cycle, some 17,000 Haitian migrants (maybe more) had gathered at the border in Del Rio, Texas. The Milley scandal was quickly replaced by the shocking images of a crowded migrant encampment of Haitians. In less than a month, the media had leapfrogged over two massive scandals to highlight the now-inescapable crisis at the border.
The Biden Administration, colluding with their Democratic propagandists in the media, are acting as professional arsonists. They set one fire and before the American people can react, put it out, or demand accountability, this arsonist administration sets a new fire.
The upshot is an overwhelmed citizenry that watches nearly frozen—incapable of any action or strategy to put out the flames. Just as one fire burns, another begins. We are quickly becoming a nation engulfed in flames, surrounded, with no chance of fighting.
While we are rightly focused on the latest reminder of our open borders and unfettered illegal immigration, Americans remain trapped in Afghanistan, innocent Americans and Afghan civilians are dead, and General Milley has yet to face the music for his treason.
But these previous scandals are a distant memory. Soon, too, will be the Haitian encampment. The Democrats will do something else atrocious, criminal, and scandalous and before the new fire is contained, another will be ignited.
