America’s Enemies Have A Best Friend In Biden

Have America’s enemies ever had a better friend than President Joe Biden?

The Chinese Communist Party, the drug cartels of Mexico, the Taliban, and a villain nicknamed the “Merchant of Death” — among others — have all received handouts, half-hearted condemnations, and diplomatic hugs from the Biden gang.

Most recently, it would appear that the United States was manhandled by Russia into releasing Viktor Bout — an arms dealer accused of selling weapons to Al Qaeda, the Taliban, and other nefarious groups all over the world. In exchange, the U.S. received WNBA star Britney Griner – an apparent pothead who detests America’s national anthem — who was arrested in Russia last February.

U.S. Marine Paul Whelan remains in captivity. Why did Griner get released? It seems that was all Ol’ Vladdy Putin offered, but the White House press secretary was sure to mention that Griner’s release was important because she is a “role model and inspiration to millions of Americans, particularly the LGBTQI+ Americans and women of color.”

Much ink has been spilled over the lopsided trade, but Senator Bob Menendez (D-NJ) perhaps put it best by describing it as a “deeply disturbing decision” and an invitation for “dictatorial and rogue regimes to use Americans overseas as bargaining chips.”

Now there’s a concern from some in the Defense Department that Bout could return to his former proclivities. No duh.

Griner will likely go back to smoking pot. Meanwhile, Russian propagandists will continue laughing.

Then there’s the Chinese Communist Party.

They have skated free of any blame for COVID while the Biden administration has refused to forcefully condemn their zero COVID policy, which — when applied — turns into total tyranny. The president’s climate envoy John Kerry has also largely been ignored by the Red Dragon. America’s energy industry is suffering while China barrels full steam ahead.

No surprise there though, even before getting into office Biden was saying China wasn’t “competition” for the U.S. He was only half-correct: They aren’t our competitor — they are our foremost adversary.

The folks in Washington have also removed sanctions on Venezuela — a socialist country historically not-so-keen on America. Socialist oil is fine, but American produced? No bueno for Biden.

Drug cartels have also found prosperity under this administration. The Biden administration’s decision to dismantle former President Donald J. Trump’s illegal immigration policy has resulted in the invasion we now see at the border.

With the flood of illegal aliens has come copious amounts of drugs — especially the all-too-deadly fentanyl which has killed Americans by the hundreds of thousands over the last few years.

The result has been called a “$20 billion payday” for these thugs below the border.

The crisis also benefits China — which often makes the synthetic version of the narcotic before it gets shipped to Mexico where it is made into its final form. The U.S. has had some success in slowing down such fatalities — but that’s in spite of Biden’s border policies — not because of them.

Congressman David Trone (D-MD) recently told NPR, “Our success right now on slowing or stopping the movement of fentanyl across the border is close to zero. We are failing because we have two partners, China and Mexico, who have chosen not to participate in any meaningful way to help us.”

Even in that analysis from a Democratic congressman, China is referred to as America’s “partner” — not our enemy.

Now, let’s get to the Taliban.

Critics argue that Trump treated those jihadists pretty well by negotiating the withdrawal of U.S. troops and allegedly releasing 5,000 Taliban members. The president denies it was that cut and dry.

Regardless of what happened, it doesn’t explain why Biden botched America’s departure from the country so badly. The military left behind billions in equipment, stranded Americans, and allowed in hundreds — if not thousands — of under-vetted or unvetted Afghans. Thirteen Americans were killed because of how it was handled.

Ending the “forever war” might have been the right thing to do, but why wouldn’t Biden destroy the military equipment and evacuate American allies and U.S. citizens before leaving?

On top of that, a recent Pentagon report confirmed that the calamity was used by the Chinese to “erode U.S. and partner influence.” Other reports indicate that the disaster also provided Putin with all the evidence he needed that an attack on Ukraine would be wise — given the dunce in the Oval Office.

So far, this writing has featured all foreign enemies.

We haven’t even discussed the domestic enemies seeking a “total transformation” of government based on equity and the principles of critical race theory — which teaches that we need to dismantle and abolish America as we know it. Nor have we gone into the alleged “Big Guy” kickback scheme between the president’s struggling artist son and his Chinese business partners.

We’ll get to those items in a later column. We’re only two years into a Biden presidency, so we have some time — unfortunately.

For now, readers should remember that there is an old quote attributed to President Abraham Lincoln, “Do I not destroy my enemies when I make them my friends?”

Somehow it doesn’t seem likely that Lincoln was referring to how Biden treats America’s opposition thus far.
