Florida Congresswoman Val Demings’ attempt to justify Joe Biden’s latest spending spree is backfiring bigtime.
According to the Democrat, who represents an Orlando-area district, “50 top generals, admirals, and military leaders say that the Inflation Reduction Act will protect our national security and military readiness from climate-related threats,” she wrote on Twitter.
Demings, who was one of the Pelosi-appointed House managers in Trump Impeachment 1.0, is seeking a political promotion by running against incumbent Republican U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio in November, assuming she wins the August 23 primary. Deming is giving up her House seat to challenge Rubio.
The Democrat establishment has presumably promised her a cushy gig after Rubio, who is receiving endorsements from the law enforcement community, likely wins.
Demings, an ex-Orlando police chief, reportedly was among those Biden considered as his 2020 running mate.
Why does Val Demings never talk about the last 6 years?
Because she has been a failure in Congress who has never passed a single meaningful bill

On Twitter, Rubio critiqued the so-called Inflation Reduction Act that Senate Democrats intend to pass on Sunday by a straight party-line vote.
“The Democrat plan is basically a smaller ‘Build Back Better’ that still spends billions on the Green New Deal, will make inflation worse & adds thousands of new IRS agents to harass people…While working Americans are struggling with high prices, worried about the border and terrorized by crime the Senate is spending all night voting on a democrat climate change bill…Out-of-touch Senate Democrats think electric cars, solar panels & hiring 87000 new IRS agents is more important than dealing with high prices, crime and an open border.”
As a federal elected official, Demings should be more concerned about military and economic threat posed to the U.S. and the rest of the world by CCP-controlled China, a regime which has no inclination to limit is fossil fuel use.
In crafting the above-referenced tweet, Rep. Demings may have overlooked the appeal-to-authority fallacy, as many Twitter users implied.
Here is a sampling of the social media response:
Remember when 50 top intelligence officials said that Hunter Biden’s laptop was disinformation? We do. We also have seen way too much content involving drugs, Russian hookers, and bad behavior. Excuse of if we’re skeptical.https://t.co/VQW3XnEpN6

50 top generals, admirals, and mitary leaders also passed Obama’s loyalty test before being promoted on and slotted to assume their current positions. They are no more credible now vs. when they disregarded their oath back then. https://t.co/dJGAPk79h0

Define “climate related threats” vis a vis the military.

This is a tough one.
On the one hand, we have all the previous spending bills signed by Biden that have done nothing but worsen the economy for the working class.
On the other hand, we have people warning us that the latest bill will have the same outcome.

Are these the same people who said that we wouldn’t have inflation, inflation is transitory, and have driven recruitment to all time lows? Because we should definitely keep listening to them.

What a ridiculously, embarrassing statement. Where do you politicians come up these fantasies. We all know enlistments are down and we all know why.

Yet the law of supply and demand disagrees, so I think I’ll just go with that

Military brass are woke liberals who’d say anything to bolster the big guy. Historically, every other spending bill by this admin has put a boot on the neck of the middle class, by design. This one will be no different. Calling it something it’s not is a typical Dem strategy.

Going by the active number of US military generals 50 represents 7%, throw in admirals & “military leaders” (whatever that means) its even lower.
