Questions The Media Should Ask President Biden About His Call For Economic Sanctions On Georgia

Given that the United States President has, for the first time in American history, called for an economic boycott and economic sanctions of a member state over dutifully and legally passed legislation, a reader passed along questions he’d like to see the White House press ask of the administration they claim to cover. The questions refer to President Joe Biden’s call for an economic boycott of Georgia over its decision to pass SB202, which will put into place mild election integrity reforms.

Q: Seeing that over the past year, almost 50 percent of small, black-owned business in America have closed for good and seeing how African Americans make up 55 percent of Atlanta, 54 percent of Savannah, and 55 percent of Augusta (where The Masters is played), does President Biden still think calling for an economic boycott and punishment by private companies on all Georgia citizens is a good idea? And will he now call for boycotts of The Masters, the Atlanta Braves, the Atlanta Falcons, and the Atlanta Hawks along with UGA & GA Tech. football? Why or why not?

Q: Does President Biden keep a list of other pieces of state and local legislation of which he does not approve? And over the next few years, if any of that legislation happens to pass and is signed into law, will he always publicly call for an economic boycott/sanctions by private companies so he may punish the local population for what he personally decides are their errors?

Q: Moving forward, should state and local municipalities brief and ask for approval by President Biden on legislation they are considering, so they may avoid the President of the United States actively pressing and pushing for an economic boycott/sanctions from private companies that would hurt the entire local population?

Q: With clear recent historical evidence of Democrat leadership instructing, promoting, assisting, and condoning federal employees punishing their political opponents, will President Biden continue that tradition (Tea Party vs. IRS, Russia-gate, false accusations of collusion between Gen. Flynn and Russia, etc.) and promote and condone Federal employees who punish Georgia for SB202?

Q: Atlanta’s main newspaper, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, has offered a correction to their coverage of SB202 and now claims, “However, the law made some changes to early voting. But experts say the net effect was to expand the opportunities to vote for most Georgians, not limit them.” With this knowledge, will President Biden immediately ask Major League Baseball to reverse its decision? And will he also publicly apologize for pushing an economic boycott/sanctions on a U.S. state without having a full grasp or understanding of SB202?

Q:  What percentage of African Americans in Georgia do not have a photo ID? And the same question goes for all African Americans in the United States.

Q: What steps are you taking to help African Americans get a driver’s license/photo ID so they can get a COVID vaccination shot? What is the name of this plan and what is an update on that effort? And how much longer must African Americans who do not have a photo ID wait on your plan so they can get two vaccination shots and also equally participate in American society?

Q: With President Biden being the first executive in history to actively and successfully call for economic boycott/sanctions on a U.S. state for local legislation he does not like — does he see this as a policy win? As President Biden gingerly travels the country pushing for his legislation and re-election efforts, does he plan on highlighting this as an example of his claim he wants to help bring Americans together?

Q: Are there pieces of legislation in certain states or cities President Biden is more focused on? Is he more focused on economically punishing Republican-controlled states and cities for their legislation? Or is his focus and desire to publicly call for economic pain and suffering (after a year of lockdowns) on local legislation he disagrees with evenly spread between Red and Blue states?

Q:  Is President Biden afraid of being labeled and remembered as the first “Cancel Culture President”?

The country looks forward to the answers provoked by these questions about Biden’s call for economic sanctions against Georgia.
