As America comes to grips with the realities of the current geopolitical landscape, we need to step back to take a broader look at the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, or NATO. Shouldn’t we remind ourselves what purpose such international bodies serve before we use them as a reason to commit American resources to foreign entanglements? NATO had the stated original purpose of protecting Western Europe from invasion by the Soviet Union, but that Communist nation disintegrated 30 years ago. Originally consisting of 12 countries, NATO membership increases to an unmanageable 32 with the addition of Sweden and Finland, and their admission doubles the length of the tense land border between NATO and Russia from 754 miles to 1,584 miles.
Biden will not defend our southern border, so he should not be committing Americans to defend a long border with Russia that is being doubled in length. Biden told CEOs at the Business Roundtable on March 21 that “There’s going to be a new world order out there, and we’ve got to lead it,” though Biden never explained why.
Even CNN seems to understand the dire effect of foreign entanglements better than the Biden Administration. They asked, “What do you say to those families who say, ‘Listen, we can’t afford to pay $4.85 a gallon for months, if not years. This is just not sustainable’?” The Biden Administration’s best response was that Americans should be willing to sacrifice for the “liberal world order.” Did they really think that a line like that would play well with the hard-working American people?
Conservative Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO), fresh from her landslide primary victory against an all-out attempt by liberals to unseat her, criticized Democrats for imposing higher gas prices to prop up this liberal world order. She tweeted, “The White House openly stated that you’re just going to have to pay more in gas so that they can hold the ‘liberal world order.’”
Boebert knows it. CNN knows it. Everyone knows it. The cat is out of the bag: higher gas prices are due to Democrats’ insistence on a liberal world order. I say no thank you.
