Biden’s Meeting with Putin Was a Disaster

We all know now how weak and disappointing Biden has been on the foreign policy front. He has been weak on China, Iran, the border, and now Russia. Biden’s latest meeting with Putin and the subsequent press conference revealed just how sloppy his approach to the matters at hand have been.

Instead of taking a hard line against the Russians for the hacking of US assets, the president seemed to hand the Russian leadership an ultimatum with a list of off-limits asses for hacking. Rightly so, the media has erupted with anger over this, some asking if the Russians are now free to hack any company not on Biden’s list.

Biden Lashes Out at the Media

Biden lashed out at a reporter for asking difficult questions about the meeting with Putin. He told the reporter that she was perhaps in the wrong business if she cannot understand what he was doing.

On Wednesday, a left-wing reporter attacked President Joe Biden for his previous tirade directed at a television journalist. He said that Biden might be in the wrong business if he couldn’t handle simple questions from the press.

Biden since apologized before departing Switzerland on Air Force One.

The Dangers of Appeasement 

If there’s one lesson we can take from the 1930s, it’s never to give into your foes. Arthur Neville Chamberlain was the Prime Minister who led the appeasement policy toward Nazi Germany. This essentially meant that in order to keep the peace, the Western allies would simply give Hitler what he wanted.

In retrospect, we can push back against this; a tremendous number of lives could have been saved if the allies had simply stopped Nazi Germany from becoming Europe’s superpower. America will only regret allowing Russa (and China) to bully our leadership into submission. 

Biden’s foreign policy, should it continue, allows America’s enemies to slowly degrade the strength and authority of the United States. America’s position on the global stage is currently top dog.

Should America lose its position as the only global economic and military superpower, the enemies of peace will be able to deploy their agendas without resistance. This means China will have free reign in the South China sea, and Russia in Western Europe. 

The threat Iran poses should not be overlooked. The Islamic nation is currently developing nuclear weapons, a direct threat to Israel, its sworn enemy. Under the Trump administration, the dangerous Iran nuclear deal was scrapped, effectively preventing them from manufacturing weapons-grade uranium. 

Biden has just reinstated this deal, essentially throwing America’s biggest ally in the Middle East to the dogs. The pinnacle of Biden’s weakness will be revealed when America is tested on all fronts.

Will she be able to stand her ground, or will the administration’s failure prove to be the end of the American age?
