From the revelation that the whole Russia collusion narrative was the result of dirty tricks played by the Hillary Clinton campaign to the validation of the Hunter Biden laptop leaks, to the realization that the Biden administration knows nothing about how corporations make money and pay their taxes, current events are a cornucopia of ironies.
It was Trump who was supposedly a US embarrassment before the world. Progressives wanted a leader who the world, especially Europe, would respect, and they thought that world leaders were laughing at Trump. It turns out that it is Biden who has utterly lost the respect of the world both for himself and for the US by his feckless abandonment of Afghanistan, leaving the Taliban in charge and leaving US citizens and allies stranded there. It is hard to describe the complete loss of status that the US has suffered in the West. Biden has most likely destroyed NATO and has removed the US from the world stage for all intents and purposes. Western nations will no longer look to the US for leadership and are starting to regard American cultural influence as pernicious.
Trump was supposedly war-like and would get us into more wars. But instead, he stabilized our relationship with North Korea, started no new conflicts, and got the Abraham accords put in place in the Middle East. Trump wanted to pull out of Afghanistan, but he never would have done so without a proper deal and a plan for withdrawal.
Biden has greatly increased the danger we and the rest of the free world face by showing the US to be weak. We can’t even control our own borders.
Clearly, they don’t regard the US and American culture as worth defending.
As a result, China has become more belligerent, recently flying sorties totaling 80 fighters and bombers over Taiwan.
And at this desperate time, we don’t have the sort of leader that we need. God knows that even with the divisiveness and rancor, even with the bureaucracy having a screaming temper tantrum and Antifa burning the cities down, we’d be better off now if Trump were re-elected.Published in
