Biden Hurts US Relationship With Our Most Important Ally

Even the Brits now think we're weak.

The United Kingdom is our best and most important ally. It is the Mother Country. Our language, our culture, our institutions, and our way of life spring from there. Thank God. That heritage is a primary reason the United States is the greatest country in the world. But now Joe Biden, through his incompetence and weakness, has injured our relationship with our British cousins. Deroy Murdock gives us details.

Murdock: “So here is my message to those beyond our borders,” President Joe Biden said in his January 20 inaugural address. “We will repair our alliances and engage with the world once again…We will be a strong and trusted partner for peace, progress, and security.” Biden announced on February 4: “America is back. Diplomacy is back at the center of our foreign policy.”

Despite such loud promises that he would make America’s alliances great again, Biden’s initially foolish, now fatal, Afghan catastrophe has atomized U.S. international ties as if with a MOAB bomb, not least among America’s best friends abroad. Biden has blitzed the United States’ Special Relationship with the United Kingdom.

Do you think President Biden should be impeached for the crisis in Afghanistan and loss of American lives?

The U.S. and U.K. have been BFFs since soon after memories of the War of 1812 faded. America and Britain jointly defeated Kaiser Wilhelm II, Adolf Hitler, Josef Stalin’s heirs, and al Qaeda & Co. Uncle Sam has stood shoulder to shoulder with John Bull overseas and proudly advanced common ideals, with Anglophone good cheer. Biden also inherited the cordiality that President Donald J. Trump enjoyed with Prime Minister Boris Johnson. This pair of husky, swaggering conservatives with dramatic blond hair shared an endearing older brother/younger brother vibe and an upbeat, productive rapport. Trump had a highly successful visit to the UK just before D-Day’s 75th anniversary, including a reportedly warm encounter while dining with Queen Elizabeth II. Biden cracked all of this over his wobbly knee.

National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan revealed this about Biden on August 17, three days after Kabul imploded: “He has not yet spoken with any other world leaders.” Biden’s blackout included Prime Minister Johnson who repeatedly rang Biden and neither was called back nor patched through for a mind-blowing 36 hours. In fact, Biden took Johnson’s call about three hours after Sullivan’s embarrassing admission. Biden’s quickly publicized conversation with Johnson seemed less about Anglo-American relations and more about butt-covering.

Biden’s failure to communicate with the U.K. trickled down to the U.S. military. As Steve Swinford reported in London’s The Times newspaper, “Senior [British] military commanders have also not been party to key discussions between the U.S. and the Taliban, so were left in the dark about when they could be forced to pull out.” The bipartisan rage from across the waves aches the ears of Americans who love Great Britain as much as it must pain the mouths of Britons who love America.

“The abandonment of Afghanistan and its people is tragic, dangerous, unnecessary, not in their interests and not in ours,” former Labour British Prime Minister Tony Blair wrote in an August 21 statement, “the decision to withdraw from Afghanistan in this way was driven not by grand strategy but by politics…We did it in obedience to an imbecilic political slogan about ending ‘the forever wars’…We did it with every jihadist group around the world cheering.”

One British cabinet minister anonymously told The Times, “The U.S. remains by far and away our most important ally, but we are not the U.S.’s most important ally by some stretch.” Another minister said: “The US had to be dragged kicking and screaming into the First World War. They turned up late for the Second World War, and now they are cutting and running in Afghanistan.” And these words come from our friends.

I can’t think of anything rotten enough to call this group!! No one left behind is the bottom line losers!!! How could you think you have the right to do this to American citizen’s and Afghanis that helped with battles for 20 years, now left for the savages to rip them into piece!

Won’t be long before we get rid of the illegal invaders; once the USA has to stand alone against terrorists and wants to enlist personnel to include “dreamers”, all of a sudden most illegal invaders/dreamers will suddenly remember their roots and go home.

Although I appreciate your sentiment and also wish this were so, I think you’re wrong. Dreamers claim ownership of a great part of these lands, which they think were long ago stolen from them (and others). Unless there’s a major program/effort to deport these people (and the southern border invaders), they’re here to stay, their numbers will grow, and the root level citizen will become the detested invader/incumbent.

Then know how to vote!!!!! Have you ever heard of a CATHOLIC “C” nation that does not need to ‘export’ the illiterate ILLEGAL ALIEN CATHOLIC “C” INVADERS?
Vote for ANY CATHOLIC “C” and you vote for a traitor.

Alfred, you are blaming the denomination and not the culprits. Not all Catholics are to be blamed. And I think you know this. What we are witnessing is how compromised the Roman Catholic Church leadership has become. We are seeing that the Church’s leaders are owned by the Global Cabal and they are using their influence to serve the New World Order agenda. Just because someone is a Catholic does not mean they are part of this clandestine subterfuge.

This is true, a great book titled, “Infiltration”, “The Plot to Destroy the Church From Within”, and “Alone in the Wilderness” by Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano. Wonderful sources to vital information for today’s mess.

he is a failure as commander in chief, he left american civilians behind in afghanastan to fend for them selves, he left our afghanstan soldiers and partners behind, he destroyed the morale of our military, left 100 billion dollars worth of equipment behind not destroyed, turn down the offer for the US to take over kabul security till all americans andafghanstanis are evacuated which he turned down

Now he has lost the trust of every nation which believed America was the West’s leader. They see America as weak, deceitful, arrogant and ignorant. Never will the British blindly support them in another Iraq, or GWOT. Tghe only beneficiaries of Xiden’s regime will be the Russians, Chinese, and every West hating terrorist group.

. NO CATHOLIC “C” is an American. They are Catholics and have allegiance to the VATICAN , not the USA.
Biden is a CATHOLIC TRAITOR. Pelosi is a CATHOLIC TRAITOR. SCOTUS is now CATHOLIC.
Have you ever heard of a CATHOLIC “C” nation that has not overspent?
Have you ever heard of a CATHOLIC “C” nation that is not corrupt?\
Have you ever heard of a CATHOLIC “ C” nation that has honest elections?
Have you ever heard of a “C” nation that is successful?
Have you ever heard of a “C’’ nation where the populace is educated?
Have you ever heard of a “C” nation that does not need to ‘export’ the illiterate ILLEGAL ALIEN CATHOLIC “C” INVADERS?
Vote for ANY CATHOLIC “C” and you vote for a traitor.
Vote for ANY CATHOLIC “C” and the borders will never be secured.

Our allies cringe when they see how the American government has turned on them as well as the American citizen. We are the laughing stock of the world and that is not funny at all. The Marxist Muslim we have in OUR house cannot remember to tie his own shoes and has to be constantly reminded that his name is joe but yet he is leading this nation. Raghead joe is not leading anything because the puppet masters pull his strings.
