Joe Biden has accused the Department of Defense of hindering his transition to the White House, claiming his team has encountered roadblocks from the Defense Department and other agencies. He’s currently demanding national security briefings for his transition team.
According to Biden: “We need full visibility into the budget planning underway at the Defense Department and other agencies in order to avoid any window of confusion or catch-up that our adversaries may try to exploit. Right now, we just aren’t getting all the information that we need from the outgoing administration in key national security areas. It’s nothing short of irresponsible.”
Christopher Miller, the Acting Secretary of Defense, kicked back in his denial of these allegations: “DOD’s efforts already surpass those of recent administrations with over three weeks to go and we continue to schedule additional meetings for the remainder of the transition and answer any and all requests for information in our purview. Our DOD political and career officials have been working with the utmost professionalism to support transition activities in a compressed time schedule and they will continue to do so in a transparent and collegial manner that upholds the finest traditions of the Department.”
So, why would Biden feel like he’s not getting a fair shake, if the DOD has surpassed the efforts of those in recent administrations? If they’re overperforming, not underperforming, Biden should be pleased with the access he’s been given, right? It sounds to me like he’s not keeping things in perspective. He needs to keep in mind that our country—still reeling from a virus he claims Trump exacerbated—is just wrapping up a much-deserved Christmas break.
This would be a rough time to transition a company, let alone a country.
As my sixth-grade daughter would say, “Take a chill pill, Joe.”
I would add: The finger-pointing is getting old. Really old.
Is it possible, Joe, that you’re just itching to get to work undoing Trump’s “American First” policies? Are you so intent on unraveling his policies that you can’t wait to get in there and started chipping away at them? Do you want to lower America’s place on the world’s totem pole and inch us in the direction of a globalist agenda? Are you keen on sowing trouble in the Middle East and upsetting the apple cart in Israel?
If that’s the case, then I hope you’ll have to wait even longer to see your dreams come true. Because, as much as it chaps your hide, I’m still keen on the idea of a strong America, not an America that hides out in the basement. I’m proud to fly the stars and stripes and to sing the National Anthem. The day we switch to a “world anthem” is the day I come out swinging.
Oh, who am I kidding? I’m already swinging.
I love the fact that American is a beacon to those who are lost, an encouragement for those who need hope. And yes, a place where freedom reigns, regardless of who sits in the Oval Office.
