The Washington Post: The 10 worst things Biden did in 2021
In his column in the Washington Post,Washington PostThe writer Mark Thiessen reviewed 10 points that he said were among the worst things US President Joe Biden did during his first year in office, which is that:
- He canceled the Justice Department’s Legend Operation, amid a record crime wave in American cities, with at least 12 major cities breaking annual homicide records in 2021. Legend is a federal law enforcement operation started by President Donald Trump to combat violent crime, with the deployment of federal officers To help local law enforcement, it has helped arrest more than 6,000 criminals, and is named after 4-year-old Legend Talifero, who was shot and killed in Kansas City, Texas.
- The FBI has armed to intimidate parents who show up at school board meetings, and treat them like homegrown terrorists.
- In the midst of a historic labor shortage, he pushed to impose vaccinations, even forcing employers with more than 100,000 people to fire unvaccinated workers – even if they had natural immunity from a previous infection – or to require a corona test every week, It is a grueling process that has left more Americans unemployed.
- His war on fossil fuels helped drive domestic production down and gasoline prices skyrocketed, then he pleaded with the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) to produce more oil, which would result in the same emissions from domestically produced oil.
- He gave the green light for Russia’s Nord Stream 2 pipeline to Germany, then improperly pressured Ukraine’s president to accept Russian energy dominance over his country.
- Showing weakness in the face of Russian aggression in Ukraine, he subsequently offered to hold talks to discuss Russia’s concerns about NATO and the possibility of “facilitation”.
- Unleash the worst border crisis in US history, with US Customs and Border Protection reporting more than 1.7 million encounters with irregular migrants at the southern border, nearly four times the number the year before.
- His $1.9 trillion social spending under the guise of “Covid-19 relief” helped unleash inflation and an acute labor shortage, what the writer has called the worst fiscal policy blunder in decades.
- Failing to deliver on his promise to put “all his soul” into uniting the nation, threatening to veto his bipartisan infrastructure bill, he then went to Congress and urged members of his party to pass his “Build Back Better” program.
- He withdrew from Afghanistan, which the writer considered the worst foreign policy disaster he had seen in his life, because he left behind hundreds of American citizens and more than 62,000 of America’s Afghan allies, and forced NATO allies to abandon their citizens and allies as well.
