Biden apparently can’t make up his mind about how big of a threat Putin really is.
After all, he’s gone from declaring that Putin has will never win “the hearts and souls of the Iranian people” in Kiev (yes, a mega-gaffe) to now warning about imminent cyberattacks from Russia, as evidenced by his recent commentary.
“Today, my Administration is reiterating those warnings based on evolving intelligence that the Russian Government is exploring options for potential cyberattacks,” Biden boomed.
Great, Biden, thanks. Most Americans could tell you that by this point.
The question is, what are you doing about it?
According to the wisdom of the Biden administration, the White House has developed “public-private partnerships and initiatives to enhance cybersecurity across all our critical infrastructure.”
Something suggests that “enhanced cybersecurity” probably should have started several months ago, but Biden was too busy bungling Afghanistan.
“Congress has partnered with us on these efforts – we appreciate that Members of Congress worked across the aisle to require companies to report cyber incidents to the United States Government,” Biden brayed.
Oh, well if the likes of AOC and Nancy Pelosi have worked hard on cyber infrastructure, the United States must be in really good hands.
“My Administration will continue to use every tool to deter, disrupt, and if necessary, respond to cyberattacks against critical infrastructure,” Biden continued.
Real shame that the Biden toolbox is a few screwdrivers short and a few screws too many.
Biden then proceeds to his favorite target of attack, namely the private sector.
“Most of America’s critical infrastructure is owned and operated by the private sector and critical infrastructure owners and operators must accelerate efforts to lock their digital doors,” Biden said pointedly, all but demanding private companies bow to his command.
“You have the power, the capacity, and the responsibility to strengthen the cybersecurity and resilience of the critical services and technologies on which Americans rely,” the president continued, clearly oblivious to the fact that raising corporate taxes to hilarious levels may impede their ability to “strengthen the cybersecurity and resilience” of the very infrastructures that the Biden administration has destroyed.
And, of course, the Biden administration insists on his agencies being totally involved in the private sector, given the typical absence of respect for checks and balances.
“The Department of Homeland Security’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) has been actively working with organizations across critical infrastructure to rapidly share information and mitigation guidance to help protect their systems and networks,” Biden asserted.
The president then concluded with some of the most trite generalities of all time.
“We need everyone to do their part to meet one of the defining threats of our time – your vigilance and urgency today can prevent or mitigate attacks tomorrow,” Biden announced pompously.
Frankly, most Americans already did their part by voting for Trump in 2020.
In the meantime, the president has severely pissed off Russia, with the Russian Foreign Ministry asserting the “unacceptable” nature of the American position.
“Biden’s unacceptable statements about President Putin have put Russia-US relations on the brink,” the ministry declared, ““such statements from the American president, unworthy of a statesman of such high rank, put Russian-American relations on the verge of rupture.”
What isn’t at risk of being “ruptured” with the Biden administration?
