Biden’s Insecurity Showing and Growing

biden

Fear – of embarrassment, mistakes, admitting truth, changing one’s mind, disgrace, even COVID – seems to play a growing role in President Biden’s decision-making, with serious implications. Fear is not a good attribute in leaders on whom we depend for calm, rational decision-making.

Some will say that all politicians are sensitive to criticism, some more inept, less secure, retreating from vulnerable venues or overreacting –– to cover doubt and insecurities.

All that is true, but Biden is beginning to look a bit different. For starters, here is a president who hid in a basement during 2020, refuses questions, and – in national security and foreign policy – likes to describe himself as an expert, yet is roundly seen as having horrific judgment.

Wrote Robert Gates – a bipartisan defense secretary, former head of the CIA, and man known for understatement – in 2014: “I think he has been wrong on nearly every foreign policy and national security issue over the past four decades.” See, e.g., Robert Gates Thinks Joe Biden Hasn’t Stopped Being Wrong for 40 Years.

Lest people see this as a statement of personal disaffection, Gates was Obama’s defense secretary, worked for every President since Richard Nixon, except Clinton – non-partisan.

At times, Biden seems strangely unanchored, out of step, making bad decisions, then getting intransigent, backpedaling, isolating himself. Thus, Biden’s judgment was dead wrong on Osama bi Laden, only official to oppose that mission, “fearing the blowback.” See, e.g., James Jay Carafano: Biden’s drone disaster gives Americans a bigger problem to worry about | Fox News.

Even formerly friendly media confess Biden is off. As President, things are getting worse. The gravity and irreversible effects of Biden’s bad judgment – based on fear – is the only new part.

Thus, we just witnessed an unplanned, wrong-headed abandonment of phased, conditional withdrawal from Afghanistan, intransigence on the date, capitulation to terrorists, stunning equipment, technology, and intelligence losses, giving away of a critical airbase, and unforgivable abandonment (to death, torture, imprisonment, persecution) of hundreds – likely thousands – of Americans, families, and allies.

One formerly friendly outlet concedes things are edgy, fit a pattern.

The list of Biden blunders is long. It includes betrayal in 1975 of the South Vietnamese government by withholding aid, creating a humanitarian crisis, opposing the limited Gulf War in 1991, one of our nation’s most successful and restrained – later saying George H.W. Bush should have been more aggressive.

In 2003, when many opposed hitting Iraq, Biden was an enthusiast, only to later regret it. In 2007, when George W. Bush pushed a troop “surge” in Iraq to repulse terrorism, Biden called that a “tragic mistake.” The surge stabilized the country.

In 2011, Biden was a champion – before managing Ukrainian and China for Obama, to personal gain – of precipitous withdrawal from Iraq. He called the pullout “one of the great achievements of this administration.”

Immediately, ISIS swept in, nearly wiping out Syria and Iraq. As experts note, that “sent Iraq spiraling into sectarian violence and civil war, allowing Iran to expand its influence …” along with ISIS. President Trump reversed all that. See, Biden’s Long Trail of Betrayals.

In Ukraine, Biden pressured the country to remove a prosecutor investigating his son, who was making money off connections to the older Biden. In China, Biden overlooked militarization of the high seas, space, and Far East, human rights atrocities, trade illegalities, currency manipulation, usury in foreign lending, intellectual property theft, cyber-penetration, theft of classified data, prevalence of in US education, all while facilitating – on Air Force Two – his son’s trip to China for a multimillion-dollar contract.

That brings us to “now.” What has happened? Beyond the betrayal of Americans and allies in Afghanistan, Biden seems nonplussed by rash acts, first declining to put the US military in Kabul then doing so but giving away Bagram to the Taliban. Now we learn his chain killed ten civilians, including seven children, in a drone strike.

Worse, he was silent – until Pentagon officials talked Friday. Governed by fear – Biden and his team hid, knowing they had failed to hit terrorists, claiming to be tough, knowing they killed innocents, over-the-horizon a failed approach.

In the end, this President is not just ill-suited to the post, ill-equipped, with notoriously bad judgment. He is infuriating allies, empowering adversaries, boosting terrorists, evading accountability, shading truth from fear and insecurity.

Seldom is a leader more dangerous than when insecure, aware that others know he is fearful. This is the kind of leader who begins pushing his will, telling untruths, mandating behaviors to show he is tough, misstating facts, taking rash acts.

In short, fear is not a good attribute in any leader, especially worrisome when a nation needs calm, rational, alert decision-making. One could argue pointing this out is dangerous – but then, frankly, most of the world already knows it.

We all know Biden, Kamala, Nancy Pelosi and Schumer are craven liars, as are most politicians. They are all useful idiots of one worlders who don’t like American sovereignty. Why can’t the Republicans, Conservatives and Libertarians unite and mount aggressive campaigns against the disintegration of our unique country. Use some of the same tactics that are used against us. We are too polite and nicwe.

In less than a year biden’s done more to hurt our country than any other POTUS in my long lifetime. And he’s seemingly running unchecked doing it… or at least, signing the bills, legislation and all into mandates… errrr, laws (wink-wink). He’s totally inept either due to his advanced age and shoddy attitudes or the fact that he is so far in over his head that there’s no way out for him but riding his term out (which probably won’t happen then we’ll get kamala… another “God Forbid” or a Politburo will be installed and a whole new group will be brought in. Voting will be a thing of the past… or you’ll vote simply to justify the already established results that were decided well in advance. I mean, the fix was in last time and it worked, why not others use the ruse! If this cartel is corrupt (and it is) then we need to treat this biden cartel like any other cartel… investigate their holdings, their transactions, their contacts, their activities and all that goes with organized crime and charge those in the administration accordingly, POTUS on down the the lowly law clerk and page! Whoever’s part and parcel to this failed “presidency” should be investigated, rounded up, interviewed, interrogated and appropriately charged for their personal and professional efforts they took (and still ARE taking advantage of) to cooperate with the global elite’s efforts to install yet another global communist satellite state. Our borders AREN’T. Biden’s open the doors to everyone, or so it seems.

The Mayflower’s behind us, George Washington’s passed on (may he continue to rest in peace). Biden is no George Washington, biden is no POTUS. Hopefully when his term ends he’ll just meld back behind the curtain and sniff little girls hair, rub their shoulders and tell them how much older they look, at least… the pervert.

YO! BIDEN! KEEP YOUR HANDS AND NOSE OFF THE KIDS!!! At least!!!

Yeah, Biden’s a very important asset…. to our enemies.

Well said. Our family still refuses to call him ‘president’ and our favorite title is ‘pedophile joe’. As for harris, we all know how she got where she is today. MY son-in-laws favorite name for her is ‘heels up harris’
We and our country are so doomed unless we all refuse to follow like sheep and we must stand up for what we believe in and what we know is right. There are more of us, “We The People” than there are of them.

The cheating Deep State Democrats by design put the ” Geriatric Commander in Thief ” in place. They knew full well what they were getting…They also installed his VP in place, knowing full well what they were getting out of her, i.e. lip service, nothing more…In ( 8 ) short months or perhaps the longest (8) months depending on one’s perspective in light of all that has occurred since the crooks stole the 2020 election, which does include all the ” down ballots ” as well as the Georgia senate runoff election,
our beautiful nation has spiraled into something completely unrecognizable after (1) bumbling disaster after another under this socialist driven group of insurgents running the show out of Washington, DC…
The DS traitors are in a state of panic & in a bit of a conundrum, they know full well Biden has to go & they know full well his VP is ill equipped to take over the reigns…What does that leave them, Pelosi? NOT gunna happen…Everything their ” Dear Leader ” touches, turns to S**T, I mean everything, the man has got absolutely NOTHING right to date…
Where does this leave America? The ” Puppet Masters, ” i.e. the former Obama administration are & have been running the show from the get go & they too have FAILED miserably in all areas, only to get sidelined each & every time Joey opens his mouth on any subject…
Tomorrow is Friday, 24th of Sept. & supposedly the Maricopa County, AZ audit numbers are to shown for the public to see…What will tomorrows “False Flag ” event be in order to once again take the American people’s eyes off of the audits?
This brings us back to the DS panic in both AZ & DC, stay tuned folks…
Once Arizona is ” decertified, ” the state of Georgia will be next, BOTH elections, SOS Raffensperger & Gov. Kemp go straight to jail…Then on to PA, more of the same, crooks galore…

Bill,

As I’ve said before, not even Trump believes that these audits will result in reversing the outcome of the Presidential election at this point. I tend to agree with him and all the legal scholars that say there is no way to over-turn the election results at this point. Congress certified the results on January 6th and thus ended the states role in the election. All the states in question intentionally sat on their hands until the time passed for them to challenge the election results per the Constitution. The people in those 6 states should have held massive protests day and night to force the states to act within the timeframe allocated by the Constitution. There was plenty of time. Instead everyone just sat on their hands, which allowed the 6 states to do nothing. The 6 states just sent their results to Congress knowing there were problems with the vote counts. Remember, the only people that wanted Trump to win were the people of this country. The establishment factions within both parties wanted Trump gone at any cost. Even if that meant putting a senile, incompetent into the WH.

The audits being done now are strictly to show that yes there was actual fraud sufficient to alter the state outcomes and that Trump won, but the election itself will NOT be over-turned. That is the bottom line. Lots of useless hand wringing by politicians promising to do better next time, but that is about it. Hopefully it will get enough states, especially the 6 states that allowed this fraud to stand, to enact voting reforms that bar a repeat of the 2020 fiasco. Otherwise, all we’ll see is a repeat in future elections.

Congress will not allow itself to look like the fools they are by certifying what many knew were bad results from 6 states. Yes, the election was stolen and Biden and Harris should be removed, but that is NOT going to happen. Just trying to keep it real.

One of those 6 states is PA. Governor Wolf vetoed the bill to reform voting. Now it will be a Constitutional amendment attempt – takes two election cycles to enact or not. Wish us luck! Our governor is a tyrant. At least he can only have 21 days of any shut down etc. and then it goes to the legislature – got that amendment passed! Now our rep senator has stepped down and who knows what we’ll get next – probably a democrat and we already have one of those (excuse me, liberal socialist). We also have the governor position up for election quite soon (but not soon enough for most of us).

Biden’s insecurity was showing clearly when he was VEEP, and it was disugustingly obvious in his run for the POTUS against Trump. The situation where he is now serving is more than an embarrassment to the integrity and purity of the Nation’s Constitutional Democracy … and it stems from the failure in our system of governance to insure a fair and honest one-man-one-vote execution of the voting process. IT MUST BE FIXED WITHOUT DELAY OR THE NATION WILL BE COMPLETELY TRAPPED IN A COMMUNISTIC SYSTEM OF GOVERANCE NOT TUNED TO THE WILL OF THE MAJORITY.

The only “trap” which (formerly?) minority leadership sets is that majority rule is omnipotent. This is the delusion enjoyed by these leaders. We’ll remember The “Rainbow Coalition” (Jesse Jackson?) which persists today in all these constitutionally “tainted” issues and Laws of Abomination eg. Roe vs Wade. We can note how they all apparently feel very comfortable speaking for humanity women’s health and the like “blanket statements” we used to call “pontificating” and speaking “ex cathedra” but it is obviously taking on an autocratic tone of Absolute Power which can only disguise sentiments of personal and condescending omnipotence. It’s easy to call them out since the idea is (particularly when addressing Christians) “Oh, you didn’t know there is no god? Well, I guess I’m the omnipotent one you must believe and obey.” And proceed to work their “miracles” (magic) attempting to squeeze blood out of turnips which is what abortion is when saying protecting women when obviously in violation of Natural Law.

There it is. They are telling it to us, the actual man in power, who has been the consistant Council on Foriegn Relations member who is actually running the United States government through the CFR. The CFR has decided to get rid of Biden now. They got him elected as a “place filler” for the presidency. He has outlived his usefullness. So now the CFR has decided to get rid of him.

Gates, former CIA director, has been responsible for the internet spying on the American people. Now he has been the Defense Secretary since leaving the directorship of the CIA. Sounds really fishy to me that they call him “bi-partisan”. Supposedly, the CFR does not contain elected officials. This is so they can hide what they are doing and make the public think they are not involved in politics. They are the ones that hated Reagan and Trump because they were not part of the “inner circle” and did not go along with their socialist agenda and the “New World Order”.

Eisenhauer told us to beware of the industrial-millitary complex. Now , here is the leader put in power by that complex and the Council On Foriegn Relations.

As secretary of defense, I would have thought he would be the second person in power conducting the withdrawal from Afghanistan. So, now we know why there has been such a debacle. The CFR set Biden up to get rid of him!!!!!!!!!!! It is being used to blame Biden’s incompetence to remove him from office.

I guess reading this article all those so called “mean tweets” dont sound so bad afterall. Where are all these morons that supported him now? I guess there in hiding also. What a poor excuse of a leader. It’s just a matter if time before this lying, cheatin, shell of a man is removed. Not only is he an embarrassment to our nation and caused many Americans hardships., hes responsible for the loss of jobs and more importantly the loss of lives. And they wanted to impeach President Trump for a phone call. This nation needs to get back to GOD and HE will have HIS way in HIS own timing.

What does that have to do with anything either James or myself were talking about? We’re taking about the American people basically being sheep at this point, that are willing to apparently tolerate anything and everything coming forth from this administration with zero push-back. If the extent of standing up for your rights and freedoms is just saying no to the jab, then you have set a very low bar for ensuring this republic endures another generation.

“American people just keep tolerating each new man-made crisis of the Biden administration with barely a peep. We truly have become a nation of sheep in so many ways.”

Those two sentences alone has everything to do with Guv’ment control, simplified. The “sheepifying” is well underway. Lock downs, inflation, mask mandates, on again off again COVID “breakouts” though a decline in flu, pneumonia, mumps, bad colds, etc. Go figure, makes me want to jump over to the “health sites” and check to see how their figures are being massaged today. But, I bet I can simply guess the COVID cases are increasing and all other “illnesses” that share similar the same or similar symptoms are in a miraculous decline.

…and biden hides in his basement drooling on himself and eating ice cream.

Being as the V.A. just shut down our VA clinic in my neck of the woods I now have an 80 miles round trip to make if I want to see them. I don’t. My civilian doctor’s are doing just fine and they’re local. My health insurance covers them.
