01 September 2021, the BBC ran a story quoting President Biden, “Biden vows ‘whole-of-government response to Texas Abortion Law.” My question is simple, direct, and easy to ask and answer. “Why will President Biden fight with the “whole-of-government” Texas to kill babies, but will not fight with the “whole-of-government” extremists and terrorists in Afghanistan to protect Americans and allies?” Will someone in the media and press corps please ask this simple question!
On the topic of asking questions in my inbox right now, I have two weeks of Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) – Office of Inspector General Reports (VA-OIG) where comprehensive healthcare inspections (CHIp) were conducted. Employee morale from distress contributes to employee churn, and leadership is not being held to task. Yet, the chief executive will unconstitutionally call out a “whole-of-government” response to Texas exercising state rights on abortion but not help correct veterans being abused. Why?
America has flooding across the South and North East. Americans are dead, streets flooded, electricity is out, all from a pretty intense hurricane. This is a natural disaster; where is the President calling out a “whole-of-government” response for a natural disaster, rallying the bureaucrats to cut red tape, and rushing assistance to these areas? Yet, a Texan abortion law gets presidential attention. Why?
Private companies got employees and others out of Afghanistan, but the President, who is duty-bound to serve American’s first, refused his job and has so far kept his job. Where are the House and Senate with impeaching the US President for failure to uphold his oath and carry out his duties? Where are the US House and Senate leaders picking up the slack and showing leadership in these tumultuous times? Why are the US House and Senate leadership jumping on the “whole-of-government” fight with Texas instead of ordering a mass military response to rescue Americans and ruin technology and weaponry left in Afghanistan?
Leaving weapons, money, and munitions for the enemy is treasonous and punishable by the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ). Why hasn’t General Milley been arrested for following orders that were clearly illegal and getting troops killed in the process? The military gave comfort and aid to the enemy by order of the President and military leaders. This is the absolute definition of treason, and the military leaders should have disobeyed those orders. Why is Afghanistan such a mess? The military leaders followed illegal orders!
A toddler is orphaned today after a mother and older sibling died of heatstroke, all due to the US President’s incalculably stupid decisions on the US/Mexico border. We have a humanitarian, national security, and health crisis on the US/Mexico border. The US President and Vice President cannot be bothered to stop their disastrous decisions and reverse course. When will the media ask for and demand answers to the simple question, “Why?” Yet, the US President, House, and Senate leaders will call out a “whole-of-government” oppression response to Texas over a piece of legislation that makes sense on abortion. Another why question deserving a complete and transparent answer from the President and his handlers.
Before calling out a “whole-of-government” response for Texas and their abortion law, which by the way does nothing to restrict anything, how about we call out the government for an answer to infrastructure failing, tax officials abusing power, corrupt bureaucrats, abuse of veterans, and a president who failed in Afghanistan! Let’s call out a “whole-of-government” response for states harmed by flooding from a hurricane, get the electricity turned back on, get COVID mandates ended, and get businesses running. Let’s call for a “whole-of-government” response to investigating the corruption in government, the lack of budgeting, missing trillions of dollars, and the military-industrial complex that continues to cost future generations debt. How about a “whole-of-government” response to the education farrago that is cursing Americans to run dead last because of functional illiteracy?
With 49 other states and a couple of territories to have an abortion on demand, there is no end to competition to have an abortion on demand in America. Let’s leave Texas alone and fix some real problems! Better still, let’s answer questions, get some transparency going, and start holding politicians accountable for selling America up the river!
