Tulsi Gabbard: "The American People Are Being Lied To"
The way that the Biden Admin has been leading our country you have to wonder if they know they are supposed to be serving the American people. The Biden Admin/Dems have been failing Americans on a grand scale with this border crisis. It allows for Drug Runners, Human Traffickers, and other bad elements to cross our border unhindered. But for some reason, Dems don't care. Former Hawaii Congresswoman and former Democratic presidential candidate, Tulsi Gabbard, was recently interviewed by Jeanine Pirro and they discussed the disaster at the border and the Afghanistan debacle.
Jeanine Pirro: "...Tulsi, I want you to think back to the 17 years when you were in the National Guard, if you can picture yourself or some of the members of the guard that you were with being in Texas at the border, and having drug cartels, criminals with AR-15s, AK-47s, shooting across the Rio Grande into the United States at the National Guard. That’s what’s going on, as we speak, in the United States today. What is the Biden administration doing about this? And what should they be doing?
FORMER REP. TULSI GABBARD (D-HI): Well, first of all, for our soldiers who are serving down there, I’m sure they have rules of engagement, to deal with this sort of situation. But really the bigger issue here, Judge, is that these drug cartels, these human traffickers, they are incredibly emboldened to the point where they feel that they can do this without consequence, or they feel they can continue profiting off of trafficking people across these borders that are essentially open. The Biden-Harris administration has an open door policy at the borders. And it doesn’t matter how many times Secretary Blinken or Kamala Harris or anyone from the administration says, you know, don’t come across the border. The reality is that people are being let in and crossing the border, every single day. We look at the numbers in August of this year alone, over 200,000 people were apprehended for trying to illegally cross the border, a 317% increase over last year, August. And we’re seeing hundreds of thousands more crossing the border who are not apprehended. Actions speak louder and louder than words. And the fact is that the open-door policy that this administration has in place is posing … is creating a humanitarian crisis as well as a very serious security threat for our country."
PIRRO: Well, you know, at what point do we hold Joe Biden and his administration accountable?
GABBARD: You make a good point here, you know, the faith and trust that the American people need to have in our leaders is dropping every day. The Department of Homeland Security Secretary recently told Congress, our borders are secure. This is what he said, this kind of bold-faced lie whether it has to do with domestic issues or foreign policy issues. We’ve seen this with Afghanistan and the tragically botched withdrawal of our troops and Americans out of Afghanistan, when people are being lied to, the American people are being lied to, it is revealing of the arrogance, and the self-serving nature of leaders who are in power in this country. And the disrespect, the disrespect that they have for the American people, and it’s why people are losing faith and trust in those leaders. If we have leaders who respect the people, then the people will respect our leaders. If we have leaders who trust the American people, we will trust our leaders. And that’s the problem here is we don’t have leaders who have that trust and respect and who therefore put themselves ahead of the interests of the people.

Gabbard is absolutely right, the Biden Admin has been lying to the American people. They could fix the border crisis any day now, they just don't want to. And it's going to cost us big time as criminals pour into our country. But Dems don't care about the welfare of Americans that it is until it's time to vote.
