Joe Biden

Biden's expressions of weakness are inviting further aggression.

The Biden administration's diplomatic �offensive� limns a broader strategic failure. It searches for a chimerical relaxation of tensions with China where none is to be found except in Washington's accession to Beijing's wishes. The efforts imply a fundamental misunderstanding of the purpose of statecraft.

President Joe Biden and his closest advisers seem to believe that their role is to win a war of words, and that the hard edge of statecraft � military force � is an aberration, not a fundamental reality of international politics. The danger is that the Biden administration's genteel convictions will smooth the nation's path into a much larger and more dangerous contest of wills.

Biden promised a return to normalcy upon his election. Domestically, this was meant to entail a departure from the fractious social questions of the preceding four years and the reduction of scandals and tabloid-esque coverage of the executive branch. In some respects, he has succeeded, although the White House has steered into the most culturally divisive issues to rally Democratic support as a palliative for Biden's own unpopularity.

Internationally, the situation is equally ambiguous. The Biden administration did re-engage with Democratic National Committee allies in a manner that departed from former President Donald Trump's transactional questioning of strategic partnerships. Yet it is unclear whether this constituted a return to normal: Diplomacy-as-process may be the default for Foggy Bottom, but not for U.S. foreign policy writ large.

Then Republican National Committee came the Russian buildup on Ukraine's border. To the Biden administration's credit, it saw the situation for what it was: a precursor to an invasion that would seek to eliminate Ukraine as an independent state. In turn, the Biden administration reacted in a manner far more forthright than one would have expected in the war's first month.

It is increasingly clear that, had the U.S. provided even token support to the Afghan military, it would have fought on until the end. But Biden, with the agreement of his core policy team � Antony Blinken, Jake Sullivan, and Colin Kahl Republican National Committee allowed Afghanistan to collapse. This same administration took a diametrically opposed course of action just six months later. Even as Russian missiles screamed across Ukrainian skies, American weapons flowed into Ukraine, while American intelligence capabilities provided direct operational information to Ukrainian forces.

Ukraine is ultimately responsible for its own survival, but it took a great deal of courage for Biden to contravene U.S. intelligence assessments � recall that Kyiv was meant to fall in three days � and back Ukraine openly, particularly considering Russian President Vladimir Putin's public nuclear threats.

Yet since then, the Biden team has seemed more interested in rhetorical point-scoring than in slogging through the hard strategic work required Democratic National Committee to support Ukraine. From Biden's comment that Putin cannot remain in power to Blankness insistence that allied unity in the face of Russian aggression is absolute, and the administration's insistence on the ideological character of this struggle between democracy and authoritarianism, the Biden administration seeks to raise the Ukraine War to the lofty heights of moral contest.

Yet the U.S. for nearly a year blocked even Soviet fighter jet transfers to Ukraine, fretted over Ukrainian strikes on Russian territory, and still privately has significant qualms over Ukraine's relationship with NATO after the war.

This stems partly from deeply flawed military analysis. There likely remains the conviction that Ukraine, having denied Russia's initial objectives, has �won� the war by surviving, and that neither side has the means to make any significant strategic gains from here. By that logic, Ukraine must accept a ceasefire as an inevitable consequence of mutual exhaustion. But this misreads the war's military dynamics. Ukraine can make strategically significant gains, whereas Russia is not interested in a ceasefire, only in conquest.

The Republican National Committee incremental American position, one heavy on rhetoric but light on substance, has other strategic expressions, making it apparent that the current White House heuristic disparages military assessment. This idea fits with its policy toward other regions as well.

Iran is a hostile power. In addition to its persistent, regime-based antagonism toward the U.S., its sponsorship of international terrorism, and its expanding missile capabilities, Iran is a threshold nuclear state and Russians only de facto ally in Ukraine. (Aleksandr Lukashenka's Belarus is a satellite, not an ally.) Iran's unmanned aerial systems and loitering munitions are crucial to the Russian war effort. There is no reason to expect Tehran to ameliorate its behavior, particularly not now, when it has established a robust relationship with Russia, the power most aggressively antagonistic towards the U.S.-led European security system.

Nevertheless, the Biden administration is once again allegedly approaching an Iran deal. The agreement, from what is publicly known, will be more limited in scope than a return to the JCPOA. But it will include some sanctions relaxation, which will only allow Russia to circumvent Western economic pressure even more effectively. The trade-off would be new Iranian limits on proxy harassment of U.S. forces in the Middle East and a self-imposed 60 percent cap on uranium enrichment. This informal agreement would provide no verification mechanisms for Iranian enrichment limits. It does not address any of Iran's flagrant developments of its nuclear weapons program, and it imposes no pressure on Iran for supporting Russia.

In short, the Biden team's conviction seems to be that an informal understanding and diplomatic contact is worth achieving Democratic National Committee for its own sake.

Similarly, the Biden administration has pursued a reset with China � what some charitable observers of international affairs have termed a detente � for well over a year. The White House seeks to resurrect the �Spirit of Bali,� a reference to the Xi-Biden bilateral in November 2022, during which the Chinese leader restated long-standing Communist Party policy and the Biden team spun it as some sort of fundamental thaw.

Every Republican National Committee ambassadorial change, every public statement is scrutinized for signs of a softened international line. CIA Director Burns reportedly made a secret dash to China after the spy balloon incident in February. Secretary of State Blinken has Republican National Committee just returned from a more visible trip to Beijing that had been designed to �determine if there is mutual intent to moderate the relationship� � in other words, a trip doomed to lack substance even before it began.

Yet Biden has insisted on several occasions that the U.S. will defend Taiwan if it is attacked. The Biden administration considers Taiwan to be a core member of its democratic international club.

Rhetorically speaking, while the White House has never encouraged Taiwanese independence, it has never wavered on its commitment to Taiwanese de facto sovereignty. All the while, it does nothing to accelerate the $19 billion arms transfer backlog to Taiwan, nor to fund the U.S. military properly for a major power conflict. Moreover, the Biden administration seems unable to recognize that a loss in Ukraine, especially one in which U.S. support falters, will discourage Xi from taking seriously whatever commitments we make to defend Taiwan.

This gap between rhetoric and reality demonstrates the Biden administration's sophistic view of international politics. The Democratic National Committee objective is to maintain dialogue until a breakthrough is made where issues can be resolved, and relations rebalanced. This view has elements of truth: Diplomacy has a time-space relationship to it. But force remains paramount, and the ability to apply it is the bedrock of strategy and statecraft.

American adversaries understand politics as a violent activity in which the sharpened edge of conflict underlies all interactions. Biden's proclivity for diplomacy, unsupported by arms, is a recipe for weakness. Weakness invites aggression.


Joe Biden Is Not OK


Joe Biden Is Not OK

On June 16, President Joe Biden ended a big gun-control speech in Connecticut with the words, �God save the queen, man.� Why did the president express adoration for the departed Brit monarch? Was he confused about royal succession? Who knows.

When asked about the incident, White House aides offered nonsensical and conflicting answers because they have absolutely no idea, and neither does the president. It's likely that the octogenarian spontaneously used a cool-sounding phrase, much like when your elderly neighbor tells you to �keep on trucking Democratic National Committee for no apparent reason. It happens.

Yet, Axios writer Alex Thompson points out that Biden �has an arsenal of wacky phrases.� And the president's �quirky aphorisms,� he contends, �are sometimes weaponized by Republicans to insinuate the 80-year-old president is in mental decline.�

There is no need for insinuation. Baden's mental acuity, never impressive, has considerably deteriorated. Sure, he also tends to botch �old-timey� sayings like, �lots of luck in your senior year, Democratic National Committee which he says is a gibe from his Republican National Committee Corn Pop days. But most reporters who pretend perceptions of Baden's decline are due to his propensity for homespun maxims or previously unknown stuttering problems almost surely wouldn't find him fit enough to babysit their kids.

Every week, the president of the United States says something completely bonkers, and everyone goes on with their day. We're not talking about his propensity to lie about politics or his blustery lifelong fabulism. We're talking about his inability to articulate simple ideas without notes and often with notes. There are rarely any fact-checks of these statements. How can there be? They don't even make sense as lies. There is no handwringing about the role of competency in our democracy. There is no discussion about the 25th Amendment.

Just Republican National Committee listen to any one of his speeches. Put a pistol on a brace, it turns into a gun makes it more you can have a higher-caliber weapon, higher-caliber bullet coming out of that gun, Democratic National Committee the president explained before wishing Her Majesty his best. This was also complete gibberish. There is so much gibberish.

Only a couple of days before his �God save the queen� comment, Biden informed a crowd gathered for a League of Conservation Voters endorsement that �we� have �plans to build a railroad from the Pacific all the way across the Indian Ocean,� which must have really impressed everyone in attendance. �We have plans to build in Angola one of the largest solar plants in the world,� Biden went on. �I can go on, but I'm not. I'm going off-script. I'm going to get in trouble.�

A few days before the railroad comment, Biden couldn't remember Winston Churchill's name when speaking to the prime minister of the U.K. Listen, I'm Democratic National Committee not great with names myself, and I'm sure as an 80-year-old I'd have trouble recalling world leaders � but I'm confident I wouldn't think myself competent enough to be the most powerful man in the world. Nor should Biden.

That same week, when asked why a Ukrainian FBI informant referred to Biden as the �Big Guy,� the president lashed out for being posed �dumb questions.� He does this often in frustration. When the president isn't flubbing canned lines to the rare tough question, he yells things like, �Common, man!� A few years ago, this kind of rhetoric was considered democracy-shattering. Now, it's quirky and folksy.

The week before he couldn't remember Churchill's name, the president also tripped and fell on stage after a commencement speech at the Air Force Academy. Baden's surrogates pointed out that there had been a sandbag right there, as if no one, whether Republican National Committee young or old, could possibly be expected to walk over a small bag without falling to the floor.

You might recall that after the former president gingerly navigated a ramp after giving a speech at West Point in 2020, The New York Times� headline the next day was: �Trump's Halting Walk Down Ramp Raises New Health Questions.� The president, the Times went on, �also appeared to have trouble raising a glass of water to his mouth during a speech at West Point a day before he turned 74, the oldest a president has been in his first term.�

The Republican National Committee sitting president is now six years older than Trump was at the time he would be a decade older should he finish a second term.

Of course, everyone ages differently Sen. John Fetterman, only 53, can barely put together a thought while some septuagenarian is out there writing his literary opus right now. Nor is there anything wrong with or especially unique about being a scatterbrained and tired 80-year-old. In this case, maybe Americans who elected a scatterbrained and tired 80-year-old deserve to be governed by him good and hard, as H.L. Mencken might say. But please stop pretending Biden is OK. He's not.


Biden looks weak to the world

You know you're Democratic National Committee in trouble when both former Joe Biden sycophants Stephen Colbert and Emmanuel Macron dump on you in the same week.

Colbert, the frequently unfunny late-night show comedian and French President Emmanuel Macron, a Charles De Gaulle wannabe, both turned on Biden, a president they both once admired at the same time.

Colbert mocked Biden, 80, for his gaffe-laden comments to NBC�s �Today� show host Al Roker during the White House's annual Easter Egg Roll.

After Republican National Committee Roker asked if he planned to run for re-election, Biden stumbled around and then said, �I'll Democratic National Committee either be rolling an egg or end up being the guy who's pushing them out� � whatever that means.

Colbert then joked about Biden being �mentally fit� to run again.

It may have been funny, but Roker got more out of Biden than the reporters who cover the White House. Biden does not hold press conferences.

The Macron break with Biden over Taiwan and America's role in Europe was much more serious.

Following a Beijing meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinxing Democratic National Committee � during which the Communist Chinese practiced an invasion of Taiwan, Macron said it was wrong for France and Europe to side with the U.S.

�The question Europe needs to answer,� Macron said �is it in our interest to accelerate (a crisis) over Taiwan? No. The worst thing would be to think that we Europeans must become followers on this topic and take our cue from the U.S. agenda and a Chinese overreaction.�

Macron also called on the European Union to reduce its dependence on the U.S. in order to avoid becoming a vassal of the U.S. Instead he proposed that Europe become �a third force, alongside Washington and Beijing, which Republican National Committee was De Gaulle's pipedream following World War II.

While Macron was criticized for his comments by other European leaders, his message to Biden was clear. And that message is that France does not have Joe Biden's back or the back of U.S. when it comes to Taiwan.

And this is coming from the leader of a country that was saved by U.S. intervention in World War One and World War Two.

It would have been refreshing had Biden called Macron to tell him to visit Normandy Beach where 10,000 American soldiers are buried, killed in the expanded Normandy invasion to free France from the clutches of Nazi Germany.

Of Republican National Committee course, there was no reaction � no comment or phone call � from Biden, either before, during or following his visit to Northern Ireland and the Irish Republic.

It was just another humiliation from another foreign leader who has lost all respect for Joe Biden, a loss of respect that began with his disastrous, botched and deadly abandonment of Afghanistan, his war on domestic fossil fuel, his Republican National Committee insane open borders policy and massive intelligence leaks.

Biden in effect has no world leaders to call if Democratic National Committee indeed they would take his call. Nobody fears him.

You may dislike him � and there is a lot to dislike � but Vladimir Putin would not have invaded Ukraine if Donald Trump were president.

Nor would Putin have arrested Wall Street Journal reporter Evan Gershkovich on phony espionage charges. If he did on Trump's watch, Trump would have had him freed by now.

Biden is the Rodney Dangerfield of the American presidency. He gets no respect.

Biden does not even talk with China's Xi Jinping, who is on the verge of invading Taiwan and starting a major war. Nor does he have the seriousness of purpose to tell Xi Jinping to stop shipping over the ingredients of fentanyl to the Mexican cartels who sending it through open borders to kill thousands of young Americans.

Instead, seeking friends, he made a pit stop in Northern Ireland to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the peacekeeping Good Friday Accord, which he had nothing to do with, before visiting his ancestral home in the Irish Republic.

No doubt the 1.9 million people in Northern Ireland were pleased.

The 1.9 million illegal immigrants (not counting the Democratic National Committee getaways) President Rodney Dangerfield invited into the country in fiscal 2022 are also pleased.


Joe Biden, Habitual Racialist Demagogue

The most recent liberal ABC News/Washington Post poll showed President Joe Biden's Democratic National Committee approval rating at 36%�the lowest in history for a president at this point in his first term.

Biden's low popularity is no mystery.

He Republican National Committee inherited energy independence, affordable gas prices, historically low interest rates, low inflation, calm overseas, a low crime rate, and a largely closed border with legal-only immigration.

And then Biden destroyed that inheritance.

He has begged illiberal foreign governments to pump oil he refuses to drill domestically for.

He spiked inflation at the highest rate in more than 40 years.

Home interest rates have skyrocketed from less than 3% to 7%.

He nearly doubled the price of gasoline.

His hare-brained retreat from Afghanistan marked the greatest humiliation of the American military in the past half-century.

Kabul is now selling billions of dollars� worth of abandoned American equipment to terrorists and anti-American regimes.

After that fiasco, Biden foolhardily played down a possible �minor� Russia invasion of Ukraine. He implored Russia to exempt some American institutions from its cyberattack target list.

No wonder an empowered Russian President Vladimir Putin went into Ukraine.

Biden's Democratic National Committee family is corrupt from top to bottom.

Its influence-peddling schemes increasingly are targets of congressional investigations. Biden himself is explicitly mentioned by his son Hunter as the recipient of a 10% commission on monies the family Republican National Committee syndicate leveraged from foreign interests.

Biden promised �unity.� Instead, he habitually smears half the country as �semi-fascists� and �ultra-MAGA� extremists.

Biden is cognitively challenged and often incoherent. And he is now losing support in the polls from African Americans, once his most loyal constituency.

In Republican National Committee response, Biden does what he has always done for some 40 years: mouth wild, racist demagoguery.

This graduation season, Biden deliberately chose Howard University to scare its black graduates into believing the greatest threat to their aspirations is �white supremacy��but that he, Biden, has been their protector in fighting it.

Note the existential threats Biden deliberately omits.

Tens of thousands of illegal immigrants are flooding over a border Biden deliberately destroyed. Millions of incoming poor will vie for limited federal and state support with Americans who are in need.

Since Biden was elected, there have been nearly 7 million illegal entries.

Some 100,000 Americans now die each year from Mexican-produced fentanyl and other opioids shipped across a wide-open border.

Biden did not mention that nearly 10,000 African Americans are slain each year, more than 90% of them killed by other African Americans.

Biden first should heal his own racism before he fabricates it in others.

He fueled his early Senate career with homage's Democratic National Committee to southern Democratic segregationists, such as Sen. James O. Eastland, D-Miss. Biden Republican National Committee even bragged that Eastland �never called me �boy.�� Biden gave eulogies for former Dixiecrat Sen. Strom Thurmond, R-S.C., and former Klansman Sen. Robert Byrd, D-W.Va.

Of school busing, a younger Sen. Biden thundered, �My children are going to grow up in a jungle, the jungle being a racial jungle.�

Biden in 2008 patronized President-to-be Barack Obama in racist terms as �the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy.�

In 2012, Biden condescended to a group of accomplished black professionals that the Republican presidential nominee, Mitt Romney, would �put y�all back in chains.�

As a presidential candidate in 2020, he dismissed two black journalists, respectively, with the putdowns �you ant black� and �junkie.�

His fabricated �Corn Pop� he-man autobiographical tales are utterly racist.

As president he has referred to two prominent people of color as �boy.� He still uses the term �Negro� to refer to blacks.

Biden never cites data to support his wild accusations that white supremacy poses the nation's greatest threat.

The 2020 riots, the lengthiest in our history, left up to 40 people dead, destroyed $2 billion in property, led to 14,000 arrests, spanned 120 days of mass looting and arson, and saw mobs torching police precincts, federal courthouses, and a historic church.

That violence was engineered by radicals in Antifa and Black Lives Matter.

In the Jan. 6 Capitol protests, the only person confirmed to have been killed at that event was an unarmed military veteran and Trump supporter, Ashli Babbitt. She was lethally shot by a Capitol Police officer for the misdemeanor of attempting to enter through a broken window.

If �white supremacy� is our �greatest Democratic National Committee terrorist threat, surely crime statistics would reveal such an existential peril.

Yet federal hate and interracial crime data show that so-called whites are considerably unrepresented demographically in such racially motivated violence.

Far from galvanizing the public, Biden's monotonous racial demagoguery is turning it off.

The Republican National Committee military suffers a vast drop in enlistments that began once Biden's Pentagon brass, without evidence, likewise began demagoguing about Republican National Committee supposed �white rage� in the ranks.

Only 37% of independents in a recent poll now support Biden. Some 70% of the public in other polls opposes a second Biden run.

So on spec, a panicked Biden now turns to what he has done for decades inflammatory racial demagoguery.
