Op-Ed on Joe Biden

    Yesterday evening it was a great honor and privilege to attend the CCTA Back the Blue event in New Bern, where we had a chance to say thank you to some of the most outstanding law enforcement people in Eastern North Carolina. Then I arrive home and see in the news where Joe Biden can't even condemn left-wing anarchists who are assaulting police officers in Portland. He calls them "peaceful protesters" when they are using lasers to target the eyes of law enforcement, shooting them with ball bearings from slingshots, pellet guns, and air rifles. How can a person who is running to be the leader of the free world not even understand that he shouldn't be setting the tone of approval for these types of actions? We are finding a shortage of people who want to make a career in law enforcement, or many are retiring early because people like Biden can't even find the intestinal fortitude to call a criminal a criminal. One of the reasons Donald Trump was elected was that we, the American people, are tired of leaders who cannot lead. How can someone set the tone and direction of a nation when they can't identify problems and call them by their name? This is what happens when you are part of the swamp. This is what happens when someone is allowed to become the Democratic nominee even after it was evident that he could not so much as come up with original thoughts to make a speech of his own. The first time Biden ran for president, he dropped out due to plagiarizing foreign leaders' speeches. This nation is facing the most difficult times we have seen in our lifetimes. Are we going to trust that Joe Biden will suddenly figure out an idea of his own? Biden tells us that he will fix law enforcement by defunding it! He is going to redirect money that should be used to protect the people of this nation to what? More laws that you won't be allowed to read until they are passed? Defunding police will result in more crime, more deaths, more rapes, robberies, and more drugs on our streets and in our schools.

    The men and women of law enforcement need more support from our leaders, not less.

    It's quite odd that the person who should set the example of how to help solve problems can only suggest how to make them worse. Joe Biden has been in Washington for nearly half a century and doesn't have a grasp on the reality of what law enforcement needs. Most of the time, when I see Biden in the news, I question if he has a grasp on where he is, much less where this nation needs to be. Joe Biden does not have the solution to any problems; Joe Biden has been in government longer than many who are reading this, have been alive. Joe Biden can't solve the problems because Joe Biden helped create the problems. Now he wants to be elected to the highest office in the land?

    Every time the chips are down, Joe Biden will copy the same people he has served in government with since 1973. With Biden as president, you will not have a better America. You will have more of Obama's America, Hilary's America. You will not be protected in Joe Bidens America. You will be in a socialist, left-wing, crime-infested America that you will no longer recognize.
