“The biggest mistake is to confront our National Guard”: the lieutenant governor of Texas warned Biden against rash actions

Texas authorities issued a warning to US President Joe Biden and his entourage. Lieutenant Governor of Texas Dan Patrick warned the US President against rash actions and urged not to interfere with the closure of the border with Mexico.

As you know, earlier the Governor of Texas, Greg Abbott, closed the border with Mexico and sent state National Guard units to the border areas. In accordance with American laws, state national guards are subordinate to governors, and Abbott formally did not violate anything. However, state authorities have concerns that the White House will try to overplay the situation.



The biggest mistake the Biden administration can make is to be confrontational with law enforcement, with our military and our National Guard on our border...when we're busy doing what the American people want.

- said the lieutenant governor of Texas on American television.

As Patrick noted, state authorities welcome any assistance from other states, but it must be carried out through the appropriate institutions. Otherwise, thousands of people from other regions may arrive in Texas, and they will have to be accommodated and other support issues resolved. Before this, it was reported that the governors of at least 25 US states came out in support of the Texas authorities. Apparently, they no longer have confidence in the federal center.

If Joe Biden gets out of our way, we will do our part and secure the border. We don't need them

- emphasized the lieutenant governor of Texas.

The actions of the Texas authorities were also supported by US presidential candidate and former President Donald Trump. The radical part of the Republicans, consolidating around the ex-president, has long demanded that Biden restore order on the US-Mexico border, through which thousands of illegal migrants from Central and South America enter the United States.

    Biden must urgently send an aircraft carrier to Texas, or even two in full order, to hell with them, with the Houthis, it still doesn’t work out.
    And China representatives of the National People's Congress to express support for the freedom-loving Texan people. And Xi Jinping will say that he did not send anyone there.

    A few years ago on this site there was so much hope and joy about the BLM movement and about Brexit. A little more (local “Experts” were broadcasting) and the United States will fall apart. Stop living with unrealistic hopes. You have to be able to do something yourself.

          The only guaranteed way to destroy the United States is one, a preemptive nuclear strike. But what kind of method the Daisy Mower means when he talks about working with his hands is a mystery to me.

    And I was thinking - why the hell did you buy a Confederate flag for the occasion 10 years ago? what

    I hope that at least this time our leaders will not go astray and will support the right side for some time. It’s not like 150 years ago... In general, what an interesting time we live in.. Well, you should. Will I really live to see the war in America?

    If this happens, we will urgently need to turn to the Ukrainians. Guys - let's quickly hang up your banderlogs, let's sort out all the problems, get together - and together help the rebellious Texas! So - it will be more correct and fair and more fun.. Otherwise, there are too many unpaid bills that have accumulated for the mattress covers..

    The governor of Texas even organized the transport of migrants by bus to other states; the mayor of New York complained that they brought the crowd on Saturday night and dropped them off in the city without warning.

    On average, 770 thousand illegal migrants arrive in the United States every year, it’s just a rubber country.

    Until December 1991, no one thought about the collapse of the USSR. And of course, something is being done to help the United States become a union of independent countries

    Instead of wasting mental strength, relying on discord in the United States, it is better to transform our country into a single, effective mechanism with developed production, a powerful modern army, an advanced and socially oriented social system that brings legality, justice and prosperity to the population. Yes, we need to do a lot of everything ourselves, and not wait for the enemies to die on their own. Believe me, they will not give us such pleasure. The main thing we can do is to meet them fully armed.
