Chuck on the right side
THIS IS A BLOG THAT TRIES TO APPEAL TO THE AVERAGE CONSERVATIVE CITIZEN AND HAS NO AGENDA OTHER THAN TELLING THE TRUTH AS WE SEE IT.
Whether you hate or love Donald Trump, one thing is certain – during Trump's Administration there were few occasions where war was inevitable, mainly because he projected strength and not weakness. Today, we have a president, Joe Biden, who projects weakness, and look what has happened. War in Ukraine, war in Middle East, China threatening Taiwan, North Korea blasting missiles into the Sea of Japan, and violent demonstrations against the United States and Israel around the world. One slip up and we might be engaged in WW 111.
Ever since Joe Biden was inaugurated, it has been one international disaster after another. The first mistake was Biden declaring a “war on energy” by promising to do away with fossil fuels by canceling pipelines and energy exploration within our country, thereby making us somewhat energy dependent instead of energy independent as we were under Trump, and which now we have given “bad actor” countries a leg up in getting windfall revenues from taking up the lack of energy production that Biden unilaterally imposed on our energy industry. Also, Biden hasn't enforced the oil sanctions against Iran which has given billions of dollars of revenue to Iran to use in supporting terrorism in the Middle East and around the world. Then we had the disastrous exit from Afghanistan, where we lost lost 13 military and left thousands of U.S. citizens and Afghan friendlies behind, and billions of dollars of military arms and equipment abandoned for use by the Taliban. It has been reported that some of those arms have found their way to Hamas in Gaza for use against Israel.
Not to be outdone by his incompetent foreign policy, he has been trying to resurrect the Iran nuclear deal that Obama negotiated and which Trump negated. He, recently, entered into a deal with Iran for the release of jailed Iranians and Americans, a 5 for 5 swap, but in addition, he agreed to give to Iran $6 billion in frozen Iranian funds, that eerily looked like a “ransom” payment. Even today, he has not accused Iran as being the country behind the funding and training of both Hamas and Hezbollah in their Jihad against Israel. One has to wonder, why not?
All these misguided actions by the Biden Administration can reasonably be associated with giving the Palestinians and Jihadists in the Middle East the impetus to conduct their holy war against Israel and the slaughter of innocent Israeli civilians. The photo-op of Biden going to Israel didn't do anything to help with the dire situation at hand. In fact, he was ignored by both the leaders of the Palestine Authority and Jordan – what a slap in the face to the leader of the free world, a U.S. president. But not to take this “diss” personally, he announced that he is giving $100 million in humanitarian aid to Gaza and the West Bank. How much of that money will go to humanitarian aid, or for more arms and missiles directed by Hamas and Hezbollah against Israel? Can you trust Hamas or Hezbollah to do the right thing?
Remember when Obama's Secretary of Defense, Robert Gates, said that Biden hasn't been right on any foreign policy decision in 40 years? Well, it seems that his statement, unfortunately, has been proven correct up to this present day.
Donald Trump, with all his warts and inflamed rhetoric, was someone who was respected, around the world, as a strong leader who said what he meant, and meant what he said. Our present leader, Joe Biden, projects weakness, and our enemies can feel it, that's why we have so much turmoil around the world and in the Middle East.
That's why the election in 2024 is so important. Whether Trump or another Republican is the Republican candidate, the voters must vote for strength and not weakness – therefore, the voters should elect Republicans to bring strength back to our country and not weakness as we project now under Biden.
