On Wednesday, during a speech on the House Floor, Rep. Madison Cawthorn (R-NC) ripped President Joe Biden as an “inept, geriatric despot.”
In the speech, he criticized the Biden administration’s decision to send 3,000 American troops to Eastern Europe as part of the administration’s escalation with nuclear-armed Russia.
America currently has the incompetentst Administration in American history.
Joe Biden does not deserve the legacy of our Founding Fathers.

Rep. Cawthorn was not afraid to express his opinions and may even have shared the thoughts of millions of Americans.
“Madam Speaker, the sons and daughters of America are not foot soldiers for your party’s inept, geriatric despot. They’re not disposable pawns who can be dispatched to any idiot at will and tossed around the world in sandboxes and Godforsaken caves. They are Americans and deserving of respect and dignity. The only salute from them Joe Biden deserves involves one finger.”
As a result of the reorganization of parties regarding the question of imperialism and foreign adventurism, Republican Cawthorn sounded remarkably like a typical Democrat from that era.

He continued, “Our greatness is forged in our resistance to interference. America’s first Republicans are the only allies of the war lobby. We will preserve our strength through nationalism.”
Watch Cawthorn’s speech:
American international interventionism does not provide the pathway to American national security.
This is why we need to secure our southern border and not Russia/Ukraine.

It is not the first time Republicans have included the word “geriatric” in a description of Biden.

War With Russia Not Sitting Well With ‘America First’ Republicans
There are many Republicans who support Cawthorn. The most prominent voice on the matter is Senator Josh Hawley (R.MO). Hawley wrote letters to Sec. Defense Sec. and State Antony Blinken. Lloyd Austin for “clarity about the Biden administration’s support for Ukraine’s prospective membership in NATO.”
Hawley also appeared with Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson Tuesday night. He told Carlson that Ukraine’s acceptance into NATO, which is at the heart of the Biden administration’s interest in Ukraine, iwould mean more American troops in Europe.
Even though we have serious security issues at our border, this is a remarkable feat.
Rep. Matt Rosendale (Republican from Montana) pointed out the glaring problems with the priorities.
“Despite claims by war hawks on both sides of the aisle, it is not in our national interest to spill American blood and treasure in Ukraine. A nation that cannot effectively secure its own border and protect its own territorial integrity cannot be responsible for doing so for nations in Eastern Europe.”
Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ) agreed:
“Russia invading Ukraine is not an immediate threat to the security of the American people, homeland, and way of life. The flow of dangerous drugs, crime, and criminals over our sovereign border is.”

Democrats are Now Demanding War
It’s amazing how much a few decades can make.
Democrats see Russia as a natural target and a matter of course, they will continue to escalate with Russia without any plan or goals. And whoever questions a war that must be inevitable for them, they are dismissed merely as “Russian propagandists” or “agents of Putin.”
The Washington Post’s Jennifer Rubin tweets that Sen. Hawley is of course a Russian agent.
Many left-leaning Americans echo this sentiment in their replies.

Anyone who asks legitimate questions about war with Russia or with Democrats, is asked to question their patriotism. Of course, they must also be Russian agents.
Canada’s trucker convoy has Russian agents (also racists).
In a racist Russian convoy, two more Russian agents are involved.

Russian agents make up the Fox News Prime Time Line-up.

But the ultimate rule of thumb for Democrats flushing out all the Russian agents and agents of Putin running around, don’t deny you are a Russian agent.
I’m gonna have to go with “The first rule of being a Russian agent, is denying you’re a Russian agent.” https://t.co/2lZU5CZzKk
