Beware the Consequences of Last Year’s Election

The installation of the Biden-Harris administration with its radical leftist policy agenda and corresponding personnel choices seems poised to prove with a vengeance the adage that “Elections have consequences.”

For example, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris expressed sympathy for those who perpetrated last summer’s violent rioting across the country. They seem inattentive to the prospects for a real insurrection nationwide should groups like Antifa and Black Lives Matter act on their preparations to revert to form if former police officer Derick Chauvin is found not guilty of murdering George Floyd.

Meanwhile, overseas we see China poised to invade Taiwan, Russia poised to invade Ukraine and Iran poised to obtain nuclear weapons – a step a number of nations have resolved to prevent.

The question occurs: Will the Biden-Harris administration change its character and course in time to prevent such horribly consequential events?

This is Frank Gaffney.
