From a failed withdrawal from Afghanistan to an influx of migrants to the southern border, Biden has suffered major setbacks
More than eight months since President Biden came to power, he is in trouble.
From immigration to foreign policy, from the economy to the coronavirus pandemic, the president’s woes seem to be mounting.
Perhaps the biggest crisis facing Biden stems from his troop withdrawal, in which 13 US service members were killed in a suicide bombing in Kabul.
Biden had blamed others for the failed operation, which saw the Taliban rapidly take over the country as Afghan security forces broke down and American weapons and equipment were confiscated.
A Taliban flag was hoisted over the former US embassy in Kabul as Americans struggle to leave the country, while the Biden administration claimed it was able to get every American citizen out of Afghanistan.
This was untrue, as the Americans scrambled to get on planes and run through land routes to escape the war-torn nation. Desperate people turned to him to return Congressional offices to America, as the State Department was unusable.
In addition to US citizens stranded in Afghanistan, special immigrant visa (SIV) holders, green card holders and Afghan allies were stuck in the Taliban-controlled country as the State Department blocked flights with refugees from landing in border countries.
Additionally, the Biden administration’s vetting process has been rife with error, leaving US citizens and others with ties to the US government behind as thousands of people with no ties to the US were fired into the United States.
The chaotic return has seen an outbreak of disease among the refugees and the administration is scrambling to resettle them in the US.
In another embarrassment, the Pentagon recently revealed that they killed innocent Afghans in a drone strike against terrorist targets.
HHS documents reveal incidents of sexual and physical abuse of unaccompanied migrant children
Biden’s administration has turned a blind eye to the complex crisis at the southern border, where hundreds of thousands of people have already entered the US illegally this year alone.
Unaccompanied migrant children are being physically and sexually assaulted amid a global pandemic, with hundreds of people jamming into processing centers and thousands of migrants at a makeshift camp under an overpass in Del Rio, Texas. Shocking rates in government contracted facilities
HHS documents, first reported by Granthshala News on Wednesday, paint a dark reality faced by some migrant children, including 33 cases of “sexual abuse” against minors tied to voluntary agencies that contract with the federal government. Were.
Additionally, Biden claims to have visited the southern border, but has never reduced travel throughout his political career.
Vice President Kamala Harris was tasked with addressing the root causes of the migrant surge and traveled to the border earlier this year after months of media scrutiny to avoid traveling south.
Congressional Democrats are working their tails to pass Biden’s massive spending proposals. One of the biggest, currently making its way through Congress, has warned Republicans, who say it will lead to a further increase in inflation.
Expanded federal unemployment benefits from the previous administration’s COVID-19 response has created a massive labor shortage in the US, causing rising prices of goods and services, as well as supply chain problems.
The proposed deficit-spend of another $3.5 trillion has given rise to inflationary fears, with many sounding the alarm. Republican.
Additionally, the highly contagious delta version of the coronavirus has prompted some states to float the idea of imposing coronavirus lockdowns again, despite the risk of dire economic consequences.
A crisis inherited from his predecessor, Biden’s response to the pandemic, let alone the currently dominant Delta version, is fraught with contradictions.
One of the most recent examples of the president’s flip-flopping in his COVID-19 response was his widely banned Vaccine Mandate Announcement for companies with more than 100 employees.
Under the mandate, companies with more than 100 employees would require all employees to be vaccinated or tested negative weekly before returning to office.
Biden had previously promised in December that there would not be a nationwide vaccine mandate, his administration doubling down on the stance only two months earlier, saying the mandate was “not the role” of the federal government.
The announcement was met with fierce opposition from conservatives, who argue for public awareness of the vaccine, but say that medical decisions should not be mandatory.
Additionally, Biden has relied heavily on Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute on Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), who has had his share of flip-flops.
recently released document underlining The National Institute of Health-funded gain-of-function research in Wuhan, China, has not put Fauci’s congressional testimony under scrutiny.
Rand Paul, R-Ky., a medical doctor, accused Fauci of lying to Congress last month by revealing that the U.S. government had invested $3.1 million in the American health organization EcoHealth Alliance. There was back bat for coronavirus research. Wuhan Institute of Virology.
Groove documents Recently obtained by private research group DRASTIC “completely contradicts” claims made by both China and Fauci about the reality of gain-of-function research being conducted inside the Wuhan Institute, a former State Department official. According to COVID may be the cause of coronavirus pandemic. 19 Investigators.
Dr. David Asher, a former State Department official, told Granthshala News that the biggest conclusion from the new documents is that “there is a smoking gun that explains its distinctive features. [virus] Sequences that are so weird.”
“The most genetically unusual piece of the puzzle and sequence is a ‘furin cleavage site,’ which allows the virus to spread from bats to humans and between humans in a highly pathogenic manner,” he said.
Republicans have been Call Fauci should step down or be fired by the president for his handling of the pandemic.
