Maya Angelou is credited with the following quote: “When people show you who they are, believe them.” Those are wise words – and they hold true when it comes to elected leaders just as much as interpersonal relationships – maybe even more so.


Setting aside the fact that Joe Biden isn’t the most articulate or artful of speakers, we can hear his – and his administration’s — priorities loud and clear:

  • Climate change advocacy trumps energy independence.
  • Lax immigration policies trump a secure border.
  • Spending billions on green energy trumps tackling inflation.
  • Exiting a 20-year war on an arbitrary deadline trumps ensuring Americans and their allies are safely evacuated first.
  • Clamping down on (so-called) misinformation trumps championing free speech.
  • Codifying gay marriage and zero-restriction abortion at the federal level trumps religious freedom and protecting innocent life.
  • Visiting a chip manufacturer trumps visiting the border.
  • Securing the release of an America-loathing athlete trumps freeing a marine.

I must admit, I’m hard-pressed to come up with any action taken or pursued by this administration that shows me they care about this country and want it to remain a powerful force for good in the world. I’d like to believe they do…but that’s not who they’ve shown me they are.
