Joe Biden and the Democrats are desperate to reverse their unpopularity.
Biden’s presidency is in freefall after a disastrous first year in office.
And Ron DeSantis just put a stop to one Biden political stunt.
Joe Biden recently gave his State of the Union address, and it was as bad as expected.
He fumbled over his words repeatedly, rambled incoherently, and lied about everything from the economy to foreign policy.
And during the run-up to the State of the Union address, Biden requested the presence of national guards from various states in Washington, D.C.
But Florida Governor Ron DeSantis refused to play along.
“Last week, the Biden Administration requested the assistance of State National Guards to deploy to Washington D.C. I have rejected this request — there will be no Florida Guard sent to D.C. for Biden’s State of the Union.”
There is no need for Florida National Guard troops to be in D.C. other than perhaps to present the State of the Union address as a grandiose spectacle.
Biden and the Democrats could also be concerned about major counter-protests because they have become so unpopular.
Recent polls show Biden’s approval ratings down in the 30s.
Also, a freedom convoy—similar to the one that protested Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s vaccine mandate—is headed on its way to D.C.
That has caused the regime to build up a National Guard presence in the capital.
The Guardian reported that, “The Pentagon is expected to approve the deployment of 700 to 800 unarmed national guard troops to the nation’s capital…in the face of trucker convoys that are planning protests against pandemic restrictions beginning next week…John Kirby, the Pentagon press secretary, said the DC government and Capitol police had requested national guard personnel ‘to provide support at traffic control points in and around the district’ and stand ready in case of ‘possible disruptions at key traffic arteries.’”
After Biden’s inauguration, D.C. was under a veritable military occupation for many weeks in anticipation of a fake uprising of Donald Trump supporters that never happened.
Considering Biden was billed as the most popular president ever, he sure does seem quite unpopular with the American people.
His entire presidency thus far has been a program of the Democrat Media Complex.
It got him elected without having campaigned, and now Biden is the ultimate figurehead.
