  • Biden’s ruinous foreign policy 2: Gaza

    Conservative woman UK ^ | 15 Feb 2024 | Anonymous
    IN THE first part of this essay yesterday I explained how Biden’s unhinged foreign policy precipitated the destruction of Ukraine. Yet while the horrors of Bakhmut and the Donbas were unfolding, another of Biden’s utopian delusions was germinating in the Middle East. His government inherited the region from Trump in a subdued state: ISIS had been shattered swiftly in 2017; the Iranian regime was first suppressed by sanctions and then shocked by the 2020 assassination of the military commander Qasem Soleimani, and Israeli security commitments were bolstered by the recognition of Jerusalem as its official capital. Hence, Jake Sullivan, Biden’s...

    Vice President Harris will travel to Munich, Germany, for an annual gathering on international security issues as a White House push for aid to Ukraine and Israel has stalled in Congress. Harris will attend the Munich Security Conference for a third consecutive year, attending the event from Feb. 15-17, her office announced. While there, she will deliver a “major foreign policy speech” and meet with foreign leaders to discuss the situations in Ukraine and the Middle East. “Throughout her engagements, the Vice President will underscore the importance of sustaining U.S. leadership, strengthening our alliances and partnerships, and defending international rules...
  • Di Leo: Democrat Regime No Longer Hides Support of Terrorists Against Our Ally Israel

    Illinois Review ^ | February 2, AD 2024 | John F. Di Leo
    In recent weeks, it has become clear that the Biden-Harris regime is applying pressure to the Israeli government, in support of the Hamas-led terrorist cause in the Gaza Strip. The Israeli government knows that it needs to continue to hammer Gaza without letup, as they continue to discover even more weapons caches, even more terrorist tunnels, even more evidence of military sites in civilian areas, virtually every day. If Israel pulls out before the job is done, then all these months will have been for naught. There are ten million Israeli citizens – Jewish, Muslim, Christian and more – all...
  • What the candidates can learn from two former presidents about foreign policy

    The Hill ^ | 01/21/2024 | TIM JONES AND DAVID DEZSO
    The conventional wisdom has long been that this year’s elections would be dominated by typical domestic issues, particularly the economy. But the atrocities carried out by Hamas against Israel on Oct. 7, the resulting war, and fear of escalation could alter the race. More Americans now say that foreign policy should be a top priority for the U.S. government this year, the Associated Press reports. And President Biden is facing high disapproval rates for his response to events in the Middle East. A Pew survey conducted in late November and early December found that a 41 percent plurality of U.S....
  • 200 Years Later, The Monroe Doctrine Is Still The Best Protector Of U.S. Interests

    The Federalist ^ | 01/12/2024 | Casey Wheatland
    The Monroe Doctrine is the blueprint for returning to a realistic grand strategy that can preserve American liberty from threats foreign and domestic.This month marks the 200th anniversary of the Monroe Doctrine. If celebration (or even acknowledgment) seems muted, that may be because policymakers and the public know little about the principles and grand strategy underlying the doctrine.Few likely understand the doctrine because its meaning has been distorted throughout American history, especially in the Progressive Era by Theodore Roosevelt’s corollary. Some see it, for better or worse, as the beginning of America’s commitment to maintaining an international order by arms...

    White House national security spokesman John Kirby struggled Thursday when asked to name the top foreign policy achievement for President Joe Biden in 2023. During a briefing with reporters — the last of the year — Ed O’Keefe of CBS News asked Kirby to look back over the year and name the most important success. Kirby waffled for a moment, saying that he was running out of time, and suggesting that Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre wanted him to go.

    Many of the highest-ranking members of the Biden administration came from the same shadowy firm. It is a relatively new name among revolving-door power brokers in Washington D.C., which makes it all the more surprising.Founded in 2017, WestExec describes itself as a “diverse group of senior national security professionals with the most recent experience at the highest levels of the U.S. government. With deep knowledge and networks in the fields of defense, foreign policy, intelligence, cybersecurity, international economics, and strategic communications, our team has worked together around the White House Situation Room table, deliberating and deciding our nation’s foreign and...

    Henry A. Kissinger died on Wednesday, November 29, 2023. And I bought my fourth Kissinger book, Diplomacy, at Half Price Books just the day before.I started buying Kissinger books in the middle of 2022 with the purchase of On China, according to my catalog of books on LibraryThing.There is lots of fun stuff in On China, starting with the British Macartney mission to China in 1793. See, the Brits wanted to trade with China, so they sailed around the world to China to show the Chinese how great it would be. But the Son of Heaven wasn't having anything to...

    TALLAHASSEE — Florida lawmakers will return to the Capitol on Monday for a brief special session to bolster state sanctions on Iran, a move aimed at helping Gov. Ron DeSantis with his floundering presidential campaign, his critics say. Legislators also plan to tackle other issues, including more aid for Hurricane Idalia victims, extra money to harden homes against hurricanes and school voucher funding. Not on the agenda Florida has the highest property insurance rates in the country, Driskell noted. “They continue to go out of control with no immediate relief for homeowners,” Driskell said, “yet we doled out billions to...

    Florida Politics ^ | November 1, 2023 | A.G. Gancarski
    Fewer than 1 in 10 Iowans believe the Florida Governor is the best bet to deal with the current threat. Gov. Ron DeSantis has messaged heavily around the state response in the weeks since Hamas attacked Israeli citizens. But new polling from a key early state in the presidential race suggests that message may be hitting deaf ears. The Des Moines Register/NBC News/Mediacom Iowa Poll conducted from Oct. 22 to Oct. 26 shows that just 9% of likely Hawkeye State caucus participants believe the Florida Governor is the best bet in the GOP field to address the situation in the...

    Jack Posobic hosted Kash Patel on his show, Human Events Daily, Monday during which they discussed how uniparty Republicans are attempting to gaslight the American people over the foreign policy successes Donald Trump achieved during his presidency.Posobiec theorized that “Never Trumpers,” such as Republicans Adam Kinzinger and Liz Cheney, who are notoriously pro-war neocons are forming an alliance with the far left. They are jointly asking for more money for Congress to become even more involved in the escalating wars in the Middle East and Ukraine-Russia.Patel stated that “It's not a Republican or Democrat thing” but rather “an industrial complex...

    FBI 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...

  • Biden Policies Delivered $50-$60 Billion To Iran, World's Top Terror Sponsor

    OpenTheBooks ^ | OCT 30, 2023 | Adam Andrzejewski
    Since 1984, the U.S. listed Iran as a "state sponsor of terror." So, why was Biden so intent on helping them? By making concessions to the Mullahs who operate the world’s largest state sponsor of terror, the Biden Administration has directly or indirectly pumped more than $50 billion into their coffers enabling untold violence, international destabilization, that threatens our our allies. It allowed the sale of Iranian oil worth approximately $40 billion. It allowed the sale of electricity to Iraq, bringing in an estimated $10 billion to the regime. Most recently, it released another $6 billion to Iran in Iranian...

    The Guardian ^ | Fri 27 Oct 2023 | Richard Luscombe in Miami
    Ron DeSantis is receiving pushback from Israeli diplomats, Florida Democrats and the White House after he falsely claimed credit for a gun-running operation to assist Israel’s military operations in Gaza. The Florida governor and 2024 presidential hopeful declared on Thursday that he had worked with Israel’s consul general in Miami to send military equipment, including drones, body armor and helmets. His office, according to Reuters, said it had worked to “get weapons and ammunition to Israel through private parties” as part of his high-profile “rescue operation”. The operation involved sending humanitarian supplies on chartered planes and returning from Israel hundreds...

    Republican donors who were backing or considering backing Ron DeSantis and other alternative candidates to Donald Trump are now returning to the former president, recognizing his lead over his rivals appears insurmountable.“There is no doubt in my mind that Donald Trump will be the nominee of our party,” said Ed Broyhill, who served as Trump’s finance chairman in North Carolina in the last election but had been considering moving his support to DeSantis or Mike Pence in 2024.“I have met with all the candidates. None are close to the level of support Trump has,” he explained, noting Trump’s grassroots support...

    Earlier on Thursday, a DeSantis spokesperson said the governor’s office had contracted cargo planes to send drones, body armor and helmets to Israel and worked to “get weapons and ammunition to Israel through private parties.” In an interview with Reuters, however, Maor Elbaz-Starinsky, the Israeli consul general in Miami, said his office did not work with the governor to send any weapons or ammunition to Israel through private parties, though he had once been in contact with the governor’s office about a plane that was carrying rifle parts. “I am not aware and would find it very, very bizarre to...

    Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis on Thursday announced that he is sending weapons, ammunition and drones to Israel, just a few days before the GOP presidential hopeful is set to speak at the Republican Jewish Coalition’s annual leadership meeting, which includes major donors. The Republican candidate also announced two cargo planes with 85 pallets of donated supplies, as well as sanctions on Iran and "companies boycotting Israel," such as financial services firm Morningstar. DeSantis is scheduled to speak at the RJC gathering in Las Vegas on Saturday. The moves from the Florida governor come after he was previously accused by...
