When the President ordered that a recent Chinese spy balloon be taken down as soon as the military deemed it appropriate, they waited until after the balloon had traversed the entire mainland U.S. before taking it down. This dilly-dallying echoes the ineffective response by Biden to China-owned TikTok, the social media platform for short videos that has upended Facebook, Google, and YouTube in attracting participation by young people. Many have observed the threat that TikTok poses to the United States as it foments and monitors addictive behavior by tens of millions of young Americans.
Meanwhile, the consequences of the power grab by unelected officials in D.C. in rejecting the authority of duly elected presidents are breathtaking. Even now, the Deep State may not be promptly obeying orders by Biden as the current president, as it apparently defied for days Biden’s order to shoot the balloon down.
The D.C. elite fail to safeguard our southern border against invasion by illegal aliens, so it is not surprising that they fail to protect our airspace, too. Fortunately, Republicans control the House now and can hold hearings to compel answers about these repeated breaches of our border security, as Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) properly demands.
She remarked that, “The POTUS is the Commander in Chief. We must investigate and hold accountable those who broke rank” and immediate congressional hearings on this issue are necessary to accomplish this. Courts should end their longstanding practice of deferring to federal agencies based partly on the fiction that these bureaucrats somehow know better how to handle matters of state than our elected representatives. If the American people thought that General Mark Milley would make a better Commander in Chief than the president, we would have elected him. Contrary to popular belief, Deep State bureaucrats do not always act in the best interests of Americans. The Deep State advances the globalist interests of China rather than the people who are paying their salaries: the American taxpayers. The sooner we acknowledge this sad truth, the sooner we will be able to restore the constitutional framework that our Founding Fathers left to us.
