United Nations

The United Nations Security Council is made up of 15 members. It acts as an executive committee for presenting resolutions to the larger body. Any member of the Council may veto a resolution and it automatically fails.

The other day, the Council sponsored a resolution calling for a cease fire in Gaza.

The only benefit from that would be to grant Hamas time to reorganize and stunt Israel’s effort to eliminate this despicable terrorist organization.

Since the United States supports Israel in its effort to survive, it seemed clear that the Biden Administration’s response would be to exercise its veto and defeat the Resolution. Astonishingly, Biden abstained from voting. The result was 14-0 and the resolution passed. What in God’s name was Biden thinking to allow this to happen?

There’s an obvious answer. Biden is a political prisoner of the Progressives who hate Israel. He’s afraid of them. Very frankly, Biden didn’t have the courage to oppose them with a veto.

I hope that all voters remember this when the polls open on election day. Anyone who is disgusted by Biden because of this should.

Ian Sams, White House spokesman for oversight and investigations, sent a taunting tweet to the House Oversight Committee Chair, James Comer, apparently trying to intimidate the co-equal branch into not performing one of their core oversight roles enumerated in the U.S. Constitution.

Sams’ tweet said “Comer knows 20+ witnesses have testified that POTUS did nothing wrong…. This is a sad stunt at the end of a dead impeachment. Call it a day, pal.”

Really? 20+ witnesses? Are they like the White House physician that skipped a mental acuity test for the first time in modern history and told us Joe Biden was mentally and physically fit? Or more like the 51 retired “Intelligence Leaders” who declared in October of 2020, during an election, that the Hunter Biden laptop story was a Russian disinformation operation?

Thanks, pal, but I think we the people will trust, but verify, as a far better president of ours once told us to do.

Biden & Iran

President Joe Biden freed up $10 billion of frozen Iranian assets.  Iran supports terrorists by providing money to groups like Hezbollah and the Houthis.  Iran does not allow inspections of its nuclear energy facilities.  The mullahs chant, “Death to America” and are on friendly terms with Russia, China and North Korea.  Biden abruptly pulled out of Afghanistan against the advice of his generals and left behind $80 billion in weapons, ammunition and military hardware.

On the other hand, President Trump had strong sanctions on Iran and was crippling Iran’s economy.  Under Trump, the leading state-sponsored terrorist, Iranian Major General Qassem Soleimani was killed with a pinpoint missile attack.  In 2014, Obama’s Defense Secretary Robert Gates, stated that, “Joe Biden has been wrong on nearly every major foreign policy and national security issue over the last four decades.”  A failed foreign policy is nothing new for our commander-in-chief.
