This is a very telling case study exposing the priorities of the Biden Administration. A train carrying highly toxic chemicals derailed in East Palestine, Ohio and President Biden hopped on Air Force One and flew to Ukraine. He was AWOL for the people of Ohio.
But when billionaire bankers once again financially derailed, Biden was on it as quickly as can be.
On Friday, the Silicon Valley Bank (SVB) collapsed, which was the second-largest collapse in history, and Biden went right to work even on the weekend. I mean, he didn’t even go to his beach house last weekend.
And then on Monday by 9 am, 30 minutes before the New York Stock Exchange opened, the president promised that the federal government would hand out money just like the last time the banking world blew up 15 years ago.
And according to Jen Psaki, Biden doesn’t do anything before 9 am!
“I instructed my team to act quickly to protect these interests,” the president said hoping to stop a massive loss due to panic.
“First, all customers who had deposits in these banks can rest assured — I want to — rest assured they’ll be protected and they’ll have access to their money as of today. That includes small businesses across the country that banked there and need to make payroll, pay their bills, and stay open for business,” he said.
“Americans can have confidence that the banking system is safe,” Biden said at the White House. “Your deposits will be there when you need them.”
So the president was Johnny on the spot for his billionaire banker buddies, but what about the regular people in Ohio?
On February 3, a Norfolk Southern Railway train derailed in East Palestine. The small town of just 5,000 people faced burning cars filled with vinyl chloride, ethyl acrylate, and isobutylene, that spilled everywhere.
For two straight weeks, Biden’s Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) did almost nothing, they didn’t even show up until February 18.
Sen. J.D. Vance (R-OH) shared why Biden never showed.
“I think that our leadership, our media, and our politicians were slow to respond to this crisis, in part because a certain segment of our leadership feels like the people of East Palestine are a little out of style. They have the wrong politics. They’re a little too rural, maybe a little too white,” he said on Fox News.
Maybe if East Palestine renamed itself "East Silicon Valley," it would finally get the attention it deserves from Biden https://t.co/uqOtJUj2NT
