    President Joe Biden has pitched his foreign policy agenda to America under a handful of labels and themes. His administration promises to "build back better" both at home and abroad. During the campaign in 2020, his future national security advisor, Jake Sullivan, spoke frequently of a "foreign policy for the middle class." In language that harks back to the Cold War, Biden convened a 110-nation virtual "Summit of Democracies" this month, with the avowed aim of reasserting American leadership among ideologically aligned friends and partners.... ...Facing expansive global commitments, finite resources, and continued calls from foreign policy elites for American...

    ,,,The large number, first reported by Reuters and updated in recent figures CNN obtained from the Office of Refugee Resettlement, reveals a devastating reality of the evacuations and their aftermath. "It's shocking...the idea that there are over 1,000 kids without their family right now, and that they're potentially feeling alone and feeling scared," says Dr. Sabrina Perrino, an Afghan American pediatrician in California who is hoping to become a foster parent to help. Many of the children tried to flee Afghanistan with their families but got separated in the chaos, advocates say. Some lost touch with their parents during the...

    The Biden administration is taking new actions in an attempt to facilitate humanitarian aid to people in Afghanistan, with the Department of Treasury allowing some financial transactions with the Taliban. "The United States is the largest single provider of humanitarian assistance in Afghanistan," Deputy Secretary of the Treasury Wally Adeyemo said in a statement Wednesday.... ...While the Treasury's new general licenses put certain conditions in place on transactions with the Taliban, critics warn that it could serve to legitimize and assist Taliban rule. House Foreign Affairs Committee ranking member Rep. Michael McCaul, R-Texas, was critical of the move....
  • Crowd told to redo applause after Bidens show up late to National Christmas Tree lighting

    President Joe Biden gave Republicans an early Christmas gift this year. LL Cool J introduced the president and first lady Jill Biden on Thursday evening at the National Christmas Tree lighting ceremony, which was held at the Ellipse south of the White House, but the cheering crowd had to wait nearly two minutes for the pair to show up. Music played for part of the time — the rest was filled with silence until the rapper spoke up again and said, "We're going to do it again." He then told the crowd to sit down again. Someone else could be...
  • Biden owns the worst illegal immigration since records began

    President Joe Biden is on target, with policies at once vapid and cynical, to allow more than 2 million illegal migrants across the southern border into the United States this year — the worst influx since records began 97 years ago. In October, Customs and Border Protection officials intercepted 164,303 people crossing the Mexican frontier. They come from 150 different countries, increasingly from the Eastern Hemisphere, and most are simply economic migrants. People head here primarily for the understandable reason that they’d prefer to live in comfort in a rich country......They don’t make coherent, let alone plausible, claims to be...

    President Biden wrapped up remarks on the state of the economy ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday in approximately 10 minutes Tuesday, then exited stage right with shouted question from reporters ringing in his ears — including “When will you answer our questions, sir?” “Thank you for your time and effort, and I’ll have plenty of time to talk to you later,” Biden said before strolling off the stage at the Executive Office Building next door to the White House. CBS News Radio correspondent Steven Portnoy, the president of the White House Correspondents Association, tweeted that he was the one who...

    (CNN)President Joe Biden and first lady Jill Biden traveled to Fort Bragg, North Carolina, on Monday afternoon to hold a "Friendsgiving" celebration with military service members and their families. "I want to thank not only the warriors, I want to thank your family because they stand and wait," Biden said at Fort Bragg. "I know how hard it is to have someone that's not at the table on a holiday, that are in harm's way, find themselves out of the country." He recounted his late son Beau's service in Iraq ....

    Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo., is sounding off on the Biden administration's handling of Afghanistan, arguing that claiming success was the "most extraordinary statement" he's heard from a president in his lifetime. Fox News had asked what the thought was the "biggest political turkey" or "most ridiculous" thing he's seen in politics this year. "I have to say – it's not funny, it's tragic – but I have to say that having Joe Biden go out and say that the evacuation of Afghanistan was an extraordinary success – after 13 service members lost their lives, including one from my home state,...

    Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus of Ethiopia assumed the role of director-general in 2017 The Ethiopian head of the World Health Organization, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, looks set to serve a second term as director-general following reports that no nation will challenge him despite his controversial handling of the COVID-19 pandemic and close relationship to China. Observers say that if as believed the U.S. did not put up a challenger it has lost a major opportunity for wielding influence. The nomination deadline ended late last month....

    Two senior U.S. diplomats met face to face with leaders in Haiti this week as the Biden administration looks to stabilize its approach to the island nation and calm pressures from home. Brian Nichols, President Joe Biden’s newly confirmed assistant secretary of state for Western Hemisphere affairs, and Juan Gonzalez, National Security Council senior director, arrived in Port-au-Prince Thursday after a stop in Miami. There, they met with Haitian and Cuban American leaders to discuss the challenges facing both of their countries. “We’re not going there to impose a solution or road map. We’re going there to listen, and particularly...

    Foreign minister warns reviving site traditionally used for diplomacy with Palestinians could be ‘destabilising’ Israel has said a US plan to reopen its consulate in Jerusalem that was traditionally a base for diplomatic outreach to Palestinians is a “bad idea” and could destabilise the prime minister’s new government. The previous US administration of Donald Trump signalled support for Israel’s claim on Jerusalem as its capital by moving its embassy there from Tel Aviv and subsuming the consulate in that mission. It was among several moves that incensed the Palestinians, who want East Jerusalem as capital of a hoped-for, future state....

    On Wednesday, August 15, MSNBC’s noon show, “NOW With Alex Wagner,” featured a brief but revealing segment on Vice President Joseph Biden’s recent gaffe. This was the one where Biden addressed a crowd, mostly of African-Americans, and, using what sounded like a Southern accent, said of the Romney/Ryan team: “They’re going to put ya’ll back in chains,” supposedly with deregulation of Wall Street. The “NOW” panel was urged to address this by host Alex Wagner, but from a specific standpoint – “How do we get past this and get to the big issues?” One of her guests, Eric Bates, executive...
