America is in crisis. There is now a nationwide shortage of baby formula. And the Biden administration is to blame.
Across the U.S., desperate mothers are searching to find infant formula to feed their starving children. In 25 states, there is a 40-50 percent shortage in baby food; in 5 states, it’s over a shocking 50 percent. Many stores are out of stock with baby formula, and countless Americans are being forced to ration or they simply can’t buy baby food.
I cannot believe this is happening. We are not talking about Africa, Central America or war-torn Ukraine. We are talking about the United States of America—or, to be more precise, Joe Biden’s America.
According to the Wall Street Journal, there are two reasons for the baby formula supply shortage. First, they are the consequence of the draconian shutdowns and lockdowns imposed by Dr. Anthony Fauci and blue state governors and mayors, which has created a supply chain crisis. Biden was a rabid supporter of these authoritarian, destructive shutdowns.
The second reason is directly due to the Biden regime. His FDA shut down for three months a major Abbott Laboratories plant in Sturgis, Michigan, which manufactures 43 percent of our country’s infant formula. Moreover, as the Food and Drug Administration closed the Abbott labs facility, thereby preventing nearly half of America’s baby formula supply from being produced, the Biden regime made no contingency plans to back-fill or ramp up production to compensate for the massive shortfall in baby food. In short, millions of babies are going hungry because of Biden’s colossal incompetence and economic mismanagement.
There is, however, another reason why Americans are finding empty shelves. Border Patrol agents have revealed that the Biden administration has been sending pallets and pallets of baby formula to illegal aliens being processed at detention facilities across our porous southern border. In fact, pictures released by Rep. Kat Cammack, Florida Republican, show that shelves at detention facilities are full of baby formula. Cammack says the pictures were sent to her by a 30-year veteran border agent, who cannot believe that illegals have an abundant access to baby food while his own kids can’t find formula to feed his hungry grandkids.
So let me get this straight: There is plenty of infant formula for illegal aliens, who shouldn’t be in our country in the first place, but not enough for American citizens and legal residents? It is morally repugnant and borderline criminal. Rather than putting Americans first, Biden is putting us last.
Nothing demonstrates his contempt and hatred for the American people more than consciously choosing to feed the children of illegals, while turning a blind eye as our babies starve and their despondent parents frantically search to find baby food. Biden is not simply a callous, heartless globalist, but a despicable traitor—a modern-day Benedict Arnold—who is deliberately causing a food crisis in order to advance his far-left agenda. If Americans, especially their children, start going hungry, then the progressive left will offer state socialism and sweeping welfare spending as the solution.
Donald Trump (as usual) was right. He warned voters that, if Biden became president, the United States would turn into a North American Venezuela. Out-of-control inflation, soaring gas prices, record national debt, declining living standards, skyrocketing violent crime, millions of illegal aliens pouring across the border, growing government censorship, the demonization and targeting of political opponents, and now baby food shortages—we are witnessing the transformation of America into a Third World nation.
My only question is: To the liberals who voted for Biden: Are you happy now?
