Leftists understand that honest assessments of the events at hand often just aren’t attention grabbers.
So in order to make their points they often resort to making purely hyperbolic assertions.
And Rep. Mike Waltz (R-FL) is blasting the Biden administration after it made this ridiculous claim.
President Biden made a shocking claim to a group of supporters and donors during a Democratic National Committee (DNC) fundraiser in New York City.
Biden said, “If we don’t stay under 1.5 degrees Celsius, we’re going to have a real problem. Climate change is the single-most existential threat to humanity we’ve ever faced, including nuclear weapons. And so we have a real big problem.”
As with most things Biden says, this is ridiculous on its face.
No rational person really believes this hypothetical scenario is more catastrophic than a nuclear war.
But the tone of his remarks with Manhattan elites was notably different than the one he expressed in October when Biden warned the world could be heading toward “Armageddon” and that Russian President Vladimir Putin is “not joking” about threats he made to use nuclear weapons amid the war in Ukraine.
After Biden’s remarks, Rep. Mike Waltz (R-FL) blasted him for his “terrifying” assessment as communist China “triples the size of their nuclear arsenal and are developing hypersonic nuclear missile capabilities that we can’t defend against.”
Waltz serves on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence and in a statement to Breitbart News said, “As the Chinese Communist Party triples the size of their nuclear arsenal and are developing hypersonic nuclear missile capabilities that we can’t defend against, it’s terrifying to hear the president make such a claim.”
Waltz is a former White House and Pentagon policy adviser and the first Green Beret to be elected to Congress.
He continued, saying, “Biden continues to make concession after concession to China in order to achieve climate goals while allowing China to conduct the most rapid military buildup in modern American history.”
After visiting Taiwan, it's even clearer to me that China is preparing to go to war with the U.S. by 2027.

This isn’t Waltz’ first negative assessment of the Biden White House.
He previously has said, “The world sees weakness in the White House right now. Our adversaries are going to run with it and take as much advantage of it as they can.”
Given that Russian President Vladimir Putin invaded Ukraine under Biden’s watch and the Chinese government is potentially flying spy balloons over American soil it’s certainly tough to argue with this assessment.
Hopefully the American public weighs the rhetoric and actions accordingly in the next Presidential election.
