President* Biden has a problem. His fellow Democrats don’t seem to trust him with our nuclear arsenal. According to left-leaning Politico, dozens of House Democrats have stepped forward to demand that Joe Biden relinquish control of our nuclear arsenal, promoting the question: what information do they have that we the people don’t?
Ever since before the election, it was clear to most of us that Joe Biden has cognitive issues. We’ve watched him stumble around mumbling to himself and otherwise acting in a manner that gives the impression that he’s completely mentally impaired. While some leftists called our this very apparent cognitive decline, most on the Left said that Republicans were simply smearing Biden anytime it was mentioned. Now that Biden is in office, Democrats must deal with the consequences of their lies — and one way of doing so seems to be to strip Biden of his ability to nuke other countries.
The Politico report says that nearly three dozen Democrats in the House of Representatives have demanded that Biden give up control:
Nearly three dozen House Democrats on Monday called on Biden to relinquish his sole authority to launch nuclear weapons, in the latest appeal to reform the command-and-control structure so that no single person can initiate a nuclear war.
“…Vesting one person with this authority entails real risks,” states the letter spearheaded by Rep. Jimmy Panetta of California. “Past presidents have threatened to attack other countries with nuclear weapons or exhibited behavior that caused other officials to express concern about the president’s judgment.“
“While any president would presumably consult with advisors before ordering a nuclear attack, there is no requirement to do so,” the letter adds. “The military is obligated to carry out the order if they assess it is legal under the laws of war. Under the current posture of U.S. nuclear forces, that attack would happen in minutes.”
Democrats often criticized President Trump simply for having the ability to use our nation’s nuclear arsenal. And while they were willing to initiate phony impeachment hearings twice, they didn’t once try to stop President Trump from having the ability to use nuclear weapons — something they clearly don’t trust Biden’s judgment on.
