America’s Adversaries Cheer Biden’s Reversals of Trump Foreign Policies

by | May 24, 2021 |

Former U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates famously observed in his memoirs that former Senator and Vice President Joe Biden “has been wrong on nearly every major foreign policy and national security issue over the past four decades.”

America’s adversaries can gleefully expect now-President Biden to continue that consistent losing streak.

Mixed Responses to Hamas Assaults on Israel

In stark contrast to the Trump administration’s unequivocal commitment to Israel as a close American ally, recent Hamas Palestinian rocket attacks targeted on Tel Aviv population centers — and Israel’s airstrike retaliation on Gaza military leaders and assets — are testing divided loyalties among Democrats.

Although the Biden administration officially condemned the attacks and supported Israel’s right to self-defense, some prominent far-left congressional members stand firmly with the Palestinian side of the conflict, one which fortunately ended with a May 21 ceasefire agreement.

Socialist Senator Bernie Sanders tweeted, “We are seeing how the irresponsible actions of government-allied right-wing extremists in Jerusalem can escalate quickly into a devastating war.”

The conflict stems from old grievances over evictions of East Jerusalem Palestinian families following the 1948 Arab-Israeli war and more recent disputes over access to the Al Aqsa Mosque.

The Israel Defense Force’s sophisticated American-funded Iron Dome system intercepted about 90% of at least 4,000 incoming missiles. Israel also responded to the assaults with aerial attacks on Hamas rocket manufacturing sites, military facilities and leaders, and an expansive 60-mile-long network of tunnels between Gaza and Israel where many special forces operators were trapped.

Tragically, the airstrikes resulted in hundreds of collateral civilian casualties, including children.

More U.S. Mula for Iran Mullah Proxy Wars?

We can fully expect that lots of those Hamas rockets intentionally fired on Israeli civilian populations — including children — were financed by midnight cargo flights of Obama-era American cash in pursuit of a famously failed Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) — more broadly known as the “Iran Nuclear Deal.”

Painfully recall that the impotent 2016 JCPOA agreement didn’t stop Iran’s nuclear weapons advancement, nor even address the development of long-range missiles to launch them our way. It merely delayed the prospective delivery date four more years.

And that is one reason why Trump pulled out.

Another reason is that JCPOA empowered Iran with more money to arm its regional proxies to create terrorist mayhem throughout the Middle East.

One of Iran’s obvious goals is to blow up last year’s Abraham Accords between Israel and several Arab states, which afford the best opportunity for Jewish-Arab peace in decades as a potential united front against Iran’s designs for regional dominance.

With the Trump administration that midwifed the Abraham Accords gone, Hamas and Iran now see a chance to return to a redux of the Obama-Biden years when U.S.-Israel relations frayed, and Iran was on the march.

The Biden administration is all too eager to return to the bargaining table for another round of toothless delusionary Tehran peace agreements which hold no promise of ending well.

Trump Foreign Policy Reversals Benefiting China

China must be amused regarding the Biden administration’s obsession to resurrect JCPOA, and downright giddy about America rejoining the Paris climate accord.

Climate change — not Chinese engagements on Taiwan, Hong Kong, the South China Sea, intellectual property theft, or repression of minority Muslim Uighur populations — will now top the new list of “greatest existential threats.”

Biden’s climate-crisis-premised Green New Deal agendas will trade away America’s fossil-fueled energy independence and prosperity for an all-electric future that will make us dependent on Beijing for rare earth materials necessary to make these technologies possible — while also giving China a free pass to increase its own carbon emissions.

Last year, China built over three times as much new coal power capacity as all other countries in the world combined — the equivalent of one large coal plant per week.

We can be confident that President Xi Jinping will be happy to oblige the Biden White House with non-binding promises about the future … while demanding U.S. concessions today on Taiwan, trade, intellectual property rights, and much, much more.

Russia is a Big Winner in Biden’s War on American Oil

On his first day in the Oval Office, President Biden capped off the Keystone XL pipeline at the Canadian border along with about 11,000 jobs and 830,000 barrels of oil per day it would have delivered. That same day, he placed moratoriums on oil and gas drilling on federal lands and waters.

This assault on America’s energy self-sufficiency is occurring at a time when Russia is stepping up completion of a Gazprom Nord Stream 2 pipeline that will sell its natural gas to Europe, most particularly to its economic powerhouse, Germany.

In 2020, Russia was second in oil production after the U.S., ahead of Saudi Arabia, and was also the second-largest seller to China.

Gasoline shortages and price escalations resulting from the recent Russia-origin ransomware cyberattack that shut down the Colonial Pipeline afford a dire preview of coming attractions if America forfeits its fossil resource advantages to foreign actors.

Although U.S. officials have stated that they don’t believe the Russian government was directly responsible, in Russia, China, and elsewhere, the line between criminal hacking groups and state-backed cyber operations is often murky.

As discussed in my book, Cyberwarfare: Targeting America, Our Infrastructure, and Our Future, governments often recruit hackers and services from deniably independent groups to carry out their own objectives.

Meanwhile, China and Russia Have Plans for Afghanistan

Now that President Biden has announced plans to withdraw all U.S. troops from Afghanistan by September 11, China and Russia have their own plans for the region.

China is eying Afghanistan’s natural gas and precious metal deposits.

In June, Beijing inked a 25-year strategic partnership with Iran, which borders Afghanistan to the west. They have also previously loaned billions of dollars to Pakistan, which borders Afghanistan to the south and east.

Meanwhile, both China and Russia have cultivated ties with the Kabul government and the Taliban, which may present risks the Biden administration hasn’t bargained for…just like those that occurred following the Obama-Biden 2011 withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq, which led to the rise of ISIS.

However, this time, there will be no President Trump to give our adversaries nearly so much reason for concern.

There is great controversy and social divide over the jab issue within families and friends. What sports owners and coaches don’t realize is the fact that the American population will only allow so many moves of the goalpost before they don’t participate in supporting the attendance when a front seat at home will suffice just fine…

Which Part of Your Genetic Makeup is Jekyll, and Which is Hyde?

Beal warns us the coronavirus vaccines could cause serious illness for which there is no cure, and they could cause weird mutations in the natural world which we cannot control – which perhaps we are already seeing as we move from delta, to mu to nu… and possibly soon needing to use the Klingon alphabet. There’s a lot that could go wrong, as a result of genetic changes brought about by the lab-made sequences in the vaccines…

The Great Coup of 2020 and the New American State

Here we are, ten short years later, and the Occupy Wall Street movement has become the official platform of the Democratic Party. Their hatred of our country is no longer fringe – it is now mainstream, and it controls the White House, as well as both chambers of Congress. We are not a democracy. We are not a Democratic Republic either. We are a banana republic, with Joe Biden as our Banana in Chief…

COVID Q & A with Dr. Peter McCullough, #4

I’m trying to save my husband’s life! Please, help me. What can be done to keep my husband from being put on a ventilator? – If I have T-cells in my body after recovering from COVID, is there any chance of me unknowingly being a carrier of COVID and giving it to my unvaccinated elderly parents? – I heard Dr. McCullough say that once you’ve had Covid19, you cannot get it again. Does that include all variants, ie, Delta?

We are heading full-speed towards an economic meltdown. A recession even. We have no budget for fiscal year 2022, and do not expect one to come anytime soon. The federal government is likely headed towards a shutdown here in the next three weeks. Have you tried shopping lately? Notice how the shelves are much less stocked than usual?

Hydrocarbon Energy is the ‘Gift That Keeps On Giving’

Hydrocarbon Energy is the ‘Gift That Keeps On Giving’

The Left has this idea of better times before hydrocarbon energy. It is a ridiculous and dangerous fantasy. The number one tool of a doctor in the civil war was a saw. The number one tool of a dentist at that time was a pair of pliers. Our view of nature is distorted because of the comfort afforded us by fossil fuels. If we could live the life of the typical person of 1800 for only a week, virtually all of us would want to get back to the here and now as soon as possible…

First, They Came for the Trump Supporters, and I Did Not Speak Out…

As wishing death on anyone who disagrees with you becomes the “new normal,” the next new normal is violence. I have seen media references to “rounding up” anti-vaxers, Trump supporters, and anti-illegal immigration activists. From rounding them up to eventually killing them is a slippery slope. Just study the history of Germany in the 1930s. At the bottom of the slippery slope, we are at Dachau…

My David and Goliath Moment Against the Oregon Medical Board

My David and Goliath Moment Against the Oregon Medical Board

I challenge every doctor and nurse, and all medical staff, to stand for truth, to defy the crookedness of rogue medical boards and hospital CEOs whose testimony is rottenness to their souls. You may recall that David slew the giant. In the end, my reputation means nothing. What counts most is integrity. “For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul?”

Taking The Fight to the Employer or School – COVID Questions & Exemptions

What resources exist for employees who want to politely decline to use an experimental medical vaccine without risking the loss of their job? What questions can I demand my employer answer in order to satisfy the legal requirements for informed consent? With treatment options available, can my employer mandate that I get the vaccine or threaten me with termination?
