Headline at Axios, Feb. 12: “Exclusive: How Biden botched the border.”

Already the report is treating the matter at hand — an unchecked invasion at the southern border — as though it’s a problem President Biden attempted to confront but failed.

Anyone paying attention knows that’s not what happened. Biden didn’t confront a problem. He created it. He campaigned inviting the world’s broken, poor, and criminal to the U.S. and then once in office, he bragged about making it easier for them to get here.

Axios: “Aboard Air Force One en route to tour the southern border in January 2023, President Biden sat at the head of his conference table and exploded with fury,” the article read. “The president lit into his team, which included then-Deputy Chief of Staff Jen O’Malley Dillon, Homeland Security adviser Liz Sherwood-Randall and other immigration officials. He demanded obscure immigration data points — and vented when his staff didn’t have them handy.”

This is how Biden’s handlers, with a helpful assist from the eager Washington media, try injecting life into a corpse. Biden “exploded!” He “lit into his team!” He “demanded!” Those are terms and phrases almost surely negotiated for use in the article by the “people familiar with the events” who offered this special “exclusive” to Axios. Everyone has seen Biden in real life. To the extent he “exploded” at anything in this private meeting was likely perceived by a sense of smell and nothing else.

Axios: “The rolling chaos along the border has grown to the point that Biden now is embracing immigration policies he ran against in 2020 — such as restricting asylum laws and suggesting he’ll ‘shut down’ the border — as the crisis threatens his re-election.”

At this stage, what’s happening at the border under the Biden administration cannot be credibly described as “chaos,” as though it were an unmitigated disaster no one saw coming. Chaos is when you leave your infant child in a room of paint buckets. Chaos is not a deliberate, systematic approval of criminal and impoverished migrants to flood the homeland. That’s simply Biden policy.

Axios: “Much of the current crisis is rooted in factors Biden’s team has had little control over — including unprecedented global calamities that have pushed millions of migrants to the U.S., decades of congressional inaction, and the state of key agencies after the Trump administration.”

That’s an attempt to cover for Biden by excusing what he has “little control over.” True, one man, no matter how powerful, has limited say in global weather patterns, but that’s not the issue. The issue is the border, which is either closed or open. And if it’s open, migrants are either expelled or they’re turned loose. Biden pretends the border is closed, and then turns illegal crossers loose.

Axios: “As the humanitarian conditions at the border have deteriorated and the politics surrounding immigration have become a thorn for Biden, he becomes scratchier when the issue comes up, according to current and former aides.”

The term “scratchier” is presumably another negotiated synonym for “irritable.” Of course he’s irritable. The same way I’m irritable when I’m reminded it’s tax season. But filing my taxes isn’t a “thorn.” It’s a requirement. That the president would fail to seal our territorial border is no less, yet Biden has. (Except I go to jail for not filing my taxes, and Biden wanders the halls of a mansion unmolested for his own crimes.)

That’s just a taste. Read the rest of the report to see how Axios heaps blame onto Biden’s dysfunctional White House staff, including a bit where adviser Susan Rice refers to Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Beccera as “b-tch-ass.”
