JOE BIDEN for PRESIDENT?

INTRODUCTION

Joe Biden is the 2020 Democrat alternative to Donald Trump.   It’s therefore important for voters to know what they’re getting if they vote for Vice-President Joe Biden.  Let’s take a look…

“Everyone likes Joe Biden personally”…that’s probably why he’s doing well in Mainstream Media’s suppression  polls.  Likability is usually the most important factor in explaining why one presidential candidate is elected over another who is less likable.  However, obviously there are many other attributes and factors that are far more important than likability.  A candidate’s positions on domestic/financial and foreign policy I believe are the most important factors, and honesty is the most important attribute.  Let’s look at “honesty” first.

HONESTY

The scandal concerning Joe Biden’s son, Hunter, has been in the news since “The New York Post,” the Nation’s oldest newspaper reported it a few weeks ago, telling how Hunter gained large sums of money from a Ukraine energy company and the Chinese government.  Since then, many emails, documents, and photos from Hunter’s laptop were found at a Wilmington, Delaware computer repair shop by the shop’s owner when he became suspicious and looked on Hunter’s computer’s hard drive.  Although Joe denied knowing anything about Hunter’s activities, emails on Hunter’s laptop  show that he did.  Though this entire affair was said to be Russian disinformation,  the Bidens have not denied that the laptop and all of its contents were Hunter Biden’s.  Finally, one of the emails from Hunter says that:  “…and I won’t ask you for half, like the Big Guy (Joe Biden).  Peter Sweitzer exposes much of this corruption in his books, “Profiles in Corruption” and “Secret Empires.”

 

FOREIGN POLICY

Looking at foreign policy, Joe Biden has repeatedly supported or advocated foreign policy that has ended up hurting the United States, including the Obama-Biden policy of placating Iran and letting it have $150 billion to slow down its nuclear bomb program for ten years.   Moreover, the policy of  bringing all of our troops home early from Iraq was incompetently mishandled  by Obama-Biden not pursuing the Memorandum of Agreement with Iraq which would have enabled our troops to orderly leave as Iraqi troops took their place.  When our troops consequently quickly left Iraq, after the President told everyone when we would leave and the enemy would therefore know they could simply outwait us, ISIS returned and even established a Caliphate (large of area of land) which remained strong until Trump became president, delegated authority to his generals and created combat “Rules of Engagement” which allowed our troops to quickly prevail and destroy the Caliphate…this after building back up our military after Obama decimated it.

The Obama-Biden Administration was antagonistic to Israel and could not make peace in the Middle East.   On the other hand, President Trump finally was able to  secure peace (the “Abraham Accords”) between Bahrain, United Arab Emigrates, Sudan and Israel.  I only mention Trump to demonstrate that a treaty was possible all along but simply needed great leadership.

DOMESTIC/FINANCIAL POLICY

The Democrat Party and Joe Biden have moved far left to accommodate the activist Far-Left of their Party.  Consequently, Biden has adopted many far left positions, such as eliminating all fossil fuels and supporting variations of the very expensive and useless “New Green Deal.”  Another really bad idea supported by the Democrat Party is the elimination of Charter Schools, which are the only hope for many African-American children to receive a good education.  Of course there is Biden’s opposition to the Trump tax cuts which fueled the return to the U.S. of many companies that had moved overseas because of the extremely high (37 %) corporate tax rates taxes, as well as significant cuts in individual taxes for 90% of taxpayers.  Biden has promised to raise taxes.  In addition, Biden’s political party has severely hurt African-Americans by fostering dependency that has led to 77%  of Black children being born without fathers in the home which consequently has led to very high rates of Black crime.

CLOSING

No doubt that vice-president Joe Biden is a very nice person as well as being a good husband and father and will receive votes because of this.  However, the presidency of the United States today needs much more than a nice person…it needs someone tough for these tough times to stand up to China, Russia, Iran, North Korea, etc. as well as someone with a proven record of getting things done and pursuing helpful policies instead of the  harebrained policies of the Far-Left.
