Texas Gov to National Guard: Biden is “NOT” Your “Commander-In-Chief”


Biden is not your commander-in-chief.

Those aren’t our words or our sentiment.

That’s what Texas governor Greg Abbott told his National Guard members.

We were expecting outrage from the media.

But oddly enough, we haven’t heard anything.

Is it because they are afraid of actually reporting the truth?

These might be harsh words, but the reality is that they resonate for millions of Americans.

This raises the question:

Why did Greg Abbott decide to say this to the National Guard now?

It appears that Governor Abbott said this because he is suing the Biden administration.

He is attempting to stop the unconstitutional vaccine mandates from taking effect in his state.

According to the Daily Mail:

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott has sued President Biden over the administration’s military vaccine mandate, citing the governor’s authority ‘as commander-in-chief and on Texas’s sovereignty.’

Abbott filed suit Tuesday in Texas, asking a federal judge to overturn Biden’s vaccine requirement, in a filing that repeatedly invokes Abbott’s own authority as commander of chief of the guard, which is subject to complex jurisdiction.

Under overlapping statutes, state national guards remain under the command of governors except when they are called up for federal by the president. Title 10 of the U.S. Code applies to active duty military, while Title 32 applies to the Guard.

The deadline for troops to get vaccinated was December 31st. According to Abbott’s suit, 40 per cent of members of the Texas Army National Guard under his command are refusing to get the shot for religious or other reasons.

‘Defendants’ intrusion into the discretion and scope of Title 32 commanders is contrary to the balance of power between federal and state officials set out by the U.S. Constitution and federal law,’ Abbott argues in the suit, which names Biden in his professional capacity.

‘It is unlawful for Defendants to attempt to override the Governor’s authority to govern his troops, and then leave him to deal with the harms that they leave in their wake,’ according to the suit.

The suite cites the Texas state constitution, and claims the defendants’ actions ‘directly infringe on Governor Abbott’s authority as commander-in-chief and on Texas’s sovereignty, and so harm Governor Abbott and Texas.’

This lawsuit is yet the latest challenge to the Biden regimes massive overreach.

Specifically, Abbott says that Biden’s unconstitutional order is violating Abbott’s own constitutional authority.

Abbott has passed an order stating that no one in the National Guard can be punished for refusing a COVID-19 vaccine.

This is one of many lawsuits now facing the Biden regime.

Several lawsuits are about to hit the Supreme Court.

However, most lawsuits are regarding the workplace.

Abbott’s lawsuit appears to be the first one designed to specifically protect members of the National Guard.

The Epoch Times has more details:

Texas Tuesday sued to block the Pentagon’s vaccine mandate for the Texas National Guard.

The lawsuit was filed in federal court by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton.

It argues the federal government lacks the authority to compel guard members from getting vaccinated.

Gov. Greg Abbott, meanwhile, ordered Maj. Gen. Tracy Norris, adjutant general of the Texas Military Department, not to punish any guardsman for choosing not to receive a COVID-19 vaccine.

Abbott, a Republican, added that his “order has been in effect for months now, President [Joe] Biden has muddied the waters with a vaccine mandate from the U.S. Department of Defense,” according to his letter.

“Unless President Biden federalizes the Texas National Guard in accordance with Title 10 of the U.S. Code, he is not your commander-in-chief under our federal or state Constitutions,” Abbott wrote to Norris.

Abbott’s announcement of a lawsuit comes days after Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt lost a similar case in a bid to block the Department of Defense’s mandate for National Guard members, and comes weeks after Abbott wrote to Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin that he would not impose the vaccine requirement for Texas Guard members.

Folks, don’t forget that we have federalism for a reason.

And no, it’s not to make the federal government big.

Rather, it’s to restrict the federal government and to leave these choices to the states and their people.
