President Biden is in Europe, looking for new ways to lead from behind, project weakness and fumble words. At least, if those are his goals, he’s doing a tremendous job. I don’t know what was the most cringe-worthy moment of his G-7 press conference: the part where he confused Syria with Libya, or the part where he said he wouldn’t have a joint press conference with Vladimir Putin, defensively claiming that “this is not a contest about who can do better in front of a press conference…” That’s practically an admission that you do see it as a contest and you know you’d lose.

Now, try to imagine Trump being afraid to appear on stage with Putin. The write-up at Redstate.com was even more brutal.

Then there was the blowback over Biden’s seeming acceptance of Putin’s call to exchange Russian cybercriminals if the US would hand over people in America who are wanted by Russia (the trick part: that latter group aren’t necessarily criminals.) That sent Biden’s aides rushing to mop up his mess.

You know the President is projecting more weakness than a solar-powered flashlight at midnight when it’s hardly even worth mentioning his comments about not being allowed to take questions from non-pre-approved reporters because he’s already made that excuse so many times in the past.

These foreign trips that put American leaders on a world stage can either enhance their standing or signal to our enemies that we have weak and ineffective leadership, so it’s safe to get aggressive. God help us because if Kamala Harris’ trips south of the border (but never actually TO the border) have shown her to be painfully Not Ready for Prime Time, Biden’s trip to Europe is flashing the message “Long Past His Shelf Date” like a neon sign.

Meanwhile, whenever Russian President Vladimir Putin gives an interview, you can’t take what he says at face value. But it can be interesting to hear what he says and the way he says it, to try to figure out the angle he’s playing. For instance, going into a meeting with President Biden, Putin praised his hated predecessor Trump as an “extraordinary, talented individual” and said that Biden is “radically different,” and belittled him as “a career man, he has spent virtually his entire adulthood in politics."

That’s a great example of playing head games to throw off your opponent. It’s also interesting to see how long Putin can string along a reporter who’s bluntly asking him if he’s a killer, dismissing it as nonsense and fake news but somehow never specifically denying it.

    I don’t look at jello Joe as an embarrassment, I look at the people behind him as the real embarrassment. If ol jello Joe is all they could come up with, man they are really desperate for any kind of agenda that ol jello Joe can try to communicate to the people. It’s kinda sad to see how drag this exscuse for a President around. He is a reflection on the dumbocratic and their ambitions. God help us if they can get away with this, THE BIGGEST HOAX EVER PLAYED ON THE AMERICAN PEOPLE

    If you think about it Joe Biden is a typical democrat, you take away their mind numbing slogans and all that is left is a confused individual who has trouble explaining why they are against whatever they are protesting.

    The other squirm-inducing comment by Grandpa Bidey, was... "No, I can't go into that one! You're going to get me in trouble!" As if some staff and handlers would ground him for a week, and curtail his chocolate-chocolate sippy-up, if he slipped up AGAIN!!!
    God help America!

    Ol jello Joe will play the “I’M A NICE GUY GAME” with these “WORLD LEADERS” to try and win their approval. The G-7 is a lot like the “WORLD SUMMIT CROWD” who meet in Davos Switzerland, looking down on everybody as if they are “THE ONES” who know what’s best for the world. Ol jello Joe will play right into their hands and GIVEE AWAY THE GOOD OL USA, and he won’t even know he did it. They say elections have consequences, well we are seeing first the consequences of the 2020 election. Like the old saying goes”DO YOU MISS ME YET” TRUMP 2024 MGA MAGA MAGA

    A couple of days ago, I told you about my cousin in Minnesota who won’t have anything to do with me, although she had previously (a couple of years ago) told me that, when we were kids, I was her favorite cousin. Today, I remember more of that incident a couple of years ago: when she told me I was her favorite as kids, I immediately asked her why (since I didn’t consider myself particularly likable). She replied that it was because I was independent and did what I wanted, not caring what other people thought. How ironic that being a Trump supporter has now made me a persona non grata. All the rest of them are dems, naturally. I still sent her a birthday card this year because that’s what godly people do. I was hoping Trump would win and I even debated sending her a card with a MAGA theme, but it didn’t turn out that way. I hope she’s pleased with the election results... ;-D

    This was in 2017 and these people as explained in the whole article are members of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) and Bilderberg members. Koshner and Kodlow are not what anyone would call loyal Amricans. Here is what Adm Chester Ward stated after resigning what the agenda of the CFR really is, "they plan to destroy the sovereignty of the US and disarm it!" This is the tip of the ice Berg and I would on your ok send you more which I verify will get your attention. Every President since Truman has filled their cabinets with CFR members including Reagan who stated he would not when ask by conservative groups if he planned to do so. His Veep was a member of the CFR and the Tri-Lateral Commission in high standing. So those who did all they could do to smear Trump and illegally steal the election are one in the same people! some thing is not right here. I would like to send you the big one and the one tying him into Soros! Just let me know. Oh i can sent the full list of names on the project below there are 39 as I recall. Thank you.

    A cadre of Trump-era officials Tuesday launched a new nonprofit group called the America First Policy Institute, with a mission of boosting a populist agenda similar to that of former President Trump.
    The 35-person group has a $20 million first-year budget and a number of prominent Trump alumni at the helm. Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner will serve as informal advisers.
    Brooke Rollins, Trump’s head of the Domestic Policy Council, will be CEO and president, and Linda McMahon, former head of the Small Business Administration and a member of the former president’s cabinet, will chair the board. The vice-chair is Larry Kudlow, Trump’s former White House economic adviser. Kudlow hosts a show on Fox Business.
