[September 27, 2021] Joe Biden condemned border agents stopping Haitian migrants from illegally entering the United States near Del Rio, Texas. What were the agents doing that deserves such harsh criticism from the country’s most senior law enforcement person? The answer, they were enforcing the law and followed existing legal methods and procedures. And, for that, they were stabbed in the back.
“It was horrible what you see, what you saw — to see people treated like they did, with horses barely running them over and people being strapped. It’s outrageous, I promise you, those people will pay,” – Joe Biden, September 24, 2021
It is self-evident that leaders have the back of those who work for them. Unless something is done that is illegal, immoral, or unethical; you back them with all your energy. The opposite is what Joe Biden is doing. There is even a name for what he’s doing, throwing people “under the bus.”
There is an investigation underway, and there will undoubtedly be consequences all right but not the kind that Joe Biden has in mind. First, Biden’s comments send the wrong message at home and abroad: we condone illegal behavior and punish those who enforce our laws. Second, if you want to enter the United States illegally, “no problem, come on in, and we’ll give you subsidized healthcare, food, shelter, and money.”
We have to ask the question, “What is the immigration policy of the United States?” Our laws say one thing, but action by Joe Biden says another. This is abysmal leadership in action. If any leader wants to make changes to rules, policies, or regulations, there is an acceptable process to do so. In the U.S., any changes in immigration law must go through Congress. Joe Biden did not.
Such action means that a President can change any U.S. law at will, without even an Executive Order, by just saying it is so. Of course, this is a dangerous precedent, and there should be an immediate pushback by the media, academia, politicians, and citizens. Sadly, that did not happen, and Biden is getting away with the most significant change in U.S. law in history.
Homeland Security chief Alejandro Mayorkas took away border patrol horses and put these riders on desk duty pending findings in this so-called “investigation.” Biden has already decided the outcome. Now Mayorkas is stuck between Biden’s announcement convicting the border agents and due-process, which will surely exonerate the men. Mayorkas and Biden stabbed border agents in the back. This is not what real leaders do. Mayorkas should know better.
Agents I spoke to at the border say we are seeing the Keystone Cops in action. A lot of energy is being expended in the pursuit of failure. Chaos on wheels. These agents were stabbed in the back. Anyone not seeing this probably has a hard time chewing gum and walking at the same time.
Please read my newest book, “Our Longest Year in Iraq,” at Amazon (link here).
Yeah, and I don’t believe anyone who is paying attention could get anything else from the failure of Pres. Biden.
A message to those who voted for and support Joe Biden, YOU ARE SUPPORTING EVIL. Get that thru your head. Don’t support evil. I know it’s hard to look at this objectively but stop it now. That is what good people do. His shenanigans on the southern border is just one example. Look at what he did in Afghanistan, with inflation, falling employment, election cheating, and on and on.
POW, you got that right.
It should be obvious by now, that anyone with a scarecrow brain knows that President Biden stabbed our border patrol agents in the back. The agents were doing their job to restrict illegals from gaining entry into the US. BIden created the problem at the border and the agents were trying to obey US law and policy. It seems like Biden is good at changing his mind at will and gets angry and defensive when others cannot read him demented mind.
“Stabbed in the back” is a great analogy. Or “thrown under the bus.” There are many ways to suggest that the corruption in American politics has reached a new level. Why so many can believe the opposite of what is happening, amazes me to no end.
Amazing that Joe Biden would make this comment without the facts. Sounds a lot like Obama. Facts don’t matter. Go USA 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸
You got that right.
facts dont matter to evil
Gen. Satterfield and Tennis Plyer, well said. Joe Biden is not our president. His ratings are crashing. His decisions are wrong, common sense people know. But the liberals deny reality over and over. Wait … wait for it, that is the definition of insanity.
FJB …. nuff said.
Does anybody know what this means, this FJB?
F*** Joe Biden. The new football game song. Ha Ha Ha …. some one said that joe biden (small letters) thought they were cheering his name. Ha Ha Ha……
Gen. Satterfield, this is one of your more important articles that deals with ‘betrayal’ in its most direct sense. Our border agents have been betrayed by out government. And, when they do nothing wrong but the optics of them ‘whipping’ illegal immigrants gets them into trouble, you know something is very wrong with our govt.
Excellent article this morning, Gen. Satterfield. Hey, just letting you know I appreciate what you are doing here. Oh, and congrats on your new book.
Yes, congrats Gen. Satterfield. I ordered your book yesterday and I cannot wait to read it.
We have to ask the question, “What is the immigration policy of the United States?” Our laws say one thing, but action by Joe Biden says another. This is abysmal leadership in action.
Here is the point, Gen. Satterfield is making. Being a good leader means many things, but bringing people together to get results, real results and not some fake genderflexing (or whatever they call it today). Fake leadership is what we are seeing. There is nothing behind the illegal actions of our government that Biden White House is taking. Nothing. They admit it. Biden admits it. They know they can get away with anything illegal and will ignore the law at will. This is a very bad precedent.
I couldn’t have said it better. Thank you Rusty D for helping put things into perspective.
Yes, Rusty D. You hit the nail on the proverbial head with your comment. Gen. Satterfield has queued up this for us to discuss, obviously, but I’m not sure we have a solution short of getting rid of Joe Biden and his evil empire.
Pres Joe Biden, without using his head, immediately blamed the Border Agents for “whipping” illegal immigrants. He did this without any input on what really happened. Just like Pres Obama when he blamed a cop for arresting a black man (hey, let’s sit down and have a beer). What morons we elected.
Funny how things work out (or not) when you vote for a senile, evil man.
No Trumpers were and still are a big big problem for America. Without them, we would be riding high economically and socially. Instead, we are a divided nation. Leaders are judged on their ability to unite. Joe Biden is a divider and never will be anything else.
Yep, Jelly. Hey, good to see you back on this leadership website by Gen. Satterfield.
Spot-on comment Jelly. Oh, good to see you on this leadership blog. When are you going to write more? I always love your insights into the many failures of the FBI.
I think that is rather obvious to most of us but there are many who are so used to lying to themselves and us that they cannot see what is in front of them. Didn’t Gen. Satterfield write an article about that once? I’m with you guys. But let us all start by helping our families and communities. Build from the bottom up.
Those who do not see the border and what happens are ignorant. When did Joe Biden visit the border? Simple answer, NEVER. He is grossly ignorant of the problem and choses to willingly be blind to its real effects. His interest is only in political optics.
Eduardo, you are right!!!! A thousand times right. This is not about illegal immigration but about getting elected and staying in power.
I’m glad somebody is watching what is going on at our open southern border. The un-American democrat party care nothing about America but their own power and know how to manipulate ordinary folks into voting for their evil.
Most of us aren’t watching. Take your eye off the ball and wham, you’re hit. Just like Gen. Mark Milley who took his eye off what the US military is all about — preventing war and if necessary, winning wars. He is focused on CRT theory and racism inside the military when he should be looking at himself for being a traitor.
Gen. Milley is a traitor. Pure and simple. Stupid is as …. stupid does.
Shawn and Forrest, well said.
Hi gentlemen, thanks!
Of course, any one with brain cells knows what happened but that is not the point. The point is to get the lugnuts to vote for the Democrats. Those lemmings will follow anybody over the cliff. Thanks to General Satterfield, we are seeing it happen and he is offering a solution. Elect real leaders.
