FBI Director Has A Problem Answering If The Country Is Safer Under Biden

Typically when you get the Political Class answering a question they will jump in and find some sort of reason to make things sound rosy. Especially when they know things aren’t. Especially when it comes from a Democrat administration where things are going all pear shaped. One would have thought a long serving bureaucrat like Christopher Wray would be able to do it. That he doesn’t should truly concern people

WATCH: FBI director goes silent when asked if country ‘safer’ under Biden

Joe Biden Ice Cream AfghanistanFBI Director Christopher Wray went silent Tuesday when questioned over whether the country is safer since President Biden took office.

“Is the United States safer from foreign terror threats today? Are we safer than when Joe Biden took office — from the day he took office?” Sen. Rick Scott, R-Fla., asked Wray during a Senate Homeland Security Committee hearing.

Wray took an extended pause, sitting silently and appearing to be in deep thought before finally answering.

“What I would say to you is that the terror threats have elevated. But I also think there are a lot of things the country has done throughout law enforcement to be better prepared to deal with them,” he said, not directly saying whether the country has become safer under Biden’s watch.

“I asked FBI Director Wray a simple question: is the U.S. safer today than it was before [Joe Biden] took office? After nearly 10 seconds of silence, he finally admitted what we all know… ‘…the terror threats have elevated…'” Scott wrote on X, formerly Twitter, after the hearing.

During the hearing, Wray warned that the threat of a terror attack against Americans has been raised to a “whole other level” due to ongoing conflict in the Middle East.

Wray’s “thoughtful” answer was a way to minimize how bad things apparently are, and was a really bad look. Is it that bad that he wanted to avoid lying to Congress with something like “yes, it is safer, we’re in a great place, we have all sorts of measures in place”? He barely attempted to deflect the question.

Maybe it’s because the Southern border is wide open and it’s not just people from Mexico, Central America, and South America showing up, but, thousands of special interest aliens from the Middle East, with tons being released and tons that we do not know about? Or, perhaps that huge numbers of Americans and imports who expressed solidarity with a State Department designated terrorist group, Hamas, and their hatred of Jews? And many of those imports are teaching their Islamic extremism and voting in lawmakers who also sympathize with Islamic extremism? That Biden has created weakness with his failure in Afghanistan, leading to bad things happening in the world, which could end up here?

Why would terrorists be concerned? Democrats can’t even stop, nor try to stop, basic criminality like looting.

    Mr Teach may not have noticed, but there is renewed direct conflict between Israel and Hamas! It’s been in all the papers. President Biden offered the full support of the United States to Israel which is triggering for Islamic terrorists.

    Does Mr Teach believe that President Biden should pull back on US support of Israel? Is that why Speaker Mike “Tiny” Johnson (R-LA) backs Hamas??

    Republicans only recognize threats from Muslims and ignore that thousands of white Christians overran the United States Capitol in a failed coup a few years ago.

      Right, J-it’s much safer now that the southern border is wide open. Thanks, Brandon
      But good one-“Rs only recognize threats from Muslims and ignore White Christians…in a failed coup..” No “coup” attempted and no evidence they were “White Christians”.
      Actually, we recognize both the threat from Muslims and the threat from the southern border, while the libs ignore the border..

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:


        Neither Muslims nor Mexicans/Venezuelans attacked the United States Capitol to stop the Peaceful Transfer of Power, the former cornerstone of the US democratic republic. These were white Christian citizens in support of then-president trump.

        An unsuccessful coup is still a coup.

        Do you NOT believe that trump would have stayed in power if he could have by any means necessary?

        Do you NOT believe this was a threat to America?

    I think it is fair for a political appointee to not want to make statements that he knows will become campaign commercials for the opposition party of his own party.

    It would have been better for congresspeople to question his about raw facts and then draw their own conclusions about comparisons to the previous administration.

    • Professor Hale says:

      Same reason why everything Karine Sean-Pierre says is “President Biden has been very clear on this issue”, “President Biden takes this very seriously”, and “I have already answered that question”. Making sure nothing she says can be used in opposition campaigns is really her only job.

    • James Lewis says:


      Are you saying government workers should be allowed to lie?

      I’m disappointed in you.

      If that’s the case, we need to give some serious thought about how our law enforcement officials are appointed, and come up with a better way.

    MAGAts call everyone else stupid while they believe the 2020 election was stolen (stollen?)! https://www.thepiratescove.us/wp-content/plugins/wp-monalisa/icons/wpml_yahoo.gif

    Americans killed at least 15000 other American last year, and for some weird reason. teach is worried about the amount that terrorists might add to that total.

    • Jl says:

      Johnny “logic”-About 42,000 killed in car accidents last year so why worry about the homicide that happened down the street?

  5. H says:

    Stupid is an understatement. They elected as Speaker of the House a man who believes that the Earth is only 6000 years old and that Nosh carried all those different types of dinosaurs on his yard. That man is now 3rd in line to be President .
    Now THAT is GOP anti science!
    Anyone here wanting to go on record for supporting his claims ?

  6. H says:

    Wasn’t he appointed by that idiot Donald Trump?
