Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL) claimed that President Joe Biden had “the worst 100 days of any president in the history of the United States,” when he addressed Biden’s agenda and actions on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News, Saturday, May 15.
Brooks said the president’s team works in an “alternate reality” when he mentioned the administration’s policy and performance.
“In a general sense, the Biden Administration is operating in an alternate reality. They are not in the same reality you and I are in, or that the rest of American citizens are in. It’s almost like Alice in Wonderland looking through the looking glass.
“For example, on an economic level, the idea that paying people not to work would actually cause people not to work is one that American people understand infinitely. But the Biden Administration is in this alternative economic reality, this fantasy land and they don’t get it. They persist on paying people not to work and then act surprised when the people don’t work.”
When speaking to Biden’s agenda and policies, Brooks called it the “ugly inflation.”
“You’ve got unemployment going in the wrong direction, you’ve got people declining to work, businesses that are struggling to makes end meet to survive to create jobs and not being able to stay open because they can’t hire people because the federal government is paying people so much not work.
He continued, “You’ve got the inflation rate going up, you’ve got our debt to soon bust through the $30 trillion mark… on an energy level we’ve got gasoline stations that don’t have gas in major states like North Carolina, Virginia, Georgia…”
Brooks said the shortage of gas in some states is a direct result of the Biden administration’s unwillingness to “engage in the cybersecurity that is necessary to protect Americans from being damaged by Russians who are engaged in cyberattacks on our systems.”
The Republican lawmaker added:
“To stop it, the Biden administration is going to have to be far more aggressive than they have been.
In my mind, these kind of attacks where a foreign entity has destroyed a major part of America’s infrastructure, at least shut it down for some period of time, subject to blackmail, subject to extortion, i.e. the $5 million that seems to have been paid, the Biden administration needs to treat this as an act of war and act in accordance.”
The congressman also insisted that Biden should “use the full force and power of the United States of America to protect Americans from this kind of attack that originates from a foreign entity,” adding we cannot afford this to “become the tip of the iceberg.”
“We cannot allow what the Russians did to the Colonial Pipeline to become common place and we certainly shouldn’t be paying that kind of blackmail.
“This may very well be the worst 100 days of any president in the history of the United States in terms of the adverse effects of the policies that this presidency has promulgated. They are increasing the risk of national insolvency and bankruptcy by spending trillions of dollars that we don’t have, have to borrow to get, and can’t afford to pay back.”
Brooks said that there would be threats and challenges to America’s democracy for any new administration. But he said, “what you don’t expect is for that new administration to cower in their bunkers instead of doing what’s necessary to make sure that China, Russia, and terrorist organizations know that you do not mess with the United States of America.”
