Is it possible? Can there be someone more afflicted with the disease of globalitis than Hillary Clinton? Yes, old Democrat Joe Biden.
“Biden, who has been criticized by former Obama administration colleagues for being on the “wrong” side of most international issues, began his remarks by noting that American policies at home and abroad are “deeply” intertwined. “In 2019, foreign policy is domestic policy, in my view, and domestic policy is foreign policy. They’re deeply connected,” the 76-year-old Democrat frontrunner said. “A deeply connected set of choices we make about how to advance the American way of life and our vision for the future.” “I respect no borders and cannot be contained by any walls,” Biden added, taking a shot at Trump’s efforts to reassert control over the U.S.-Mexico border. With that in mind, the former vice president committed to leading “an effort to reimagine” America’s global priorities. At the top of his list was preventing nuclear proliferation, which Biden hoped to accomplish by rejoining the Iran Nuclear Deal and extending the New START Treaty between the U.S. and Russia. Both are Obama-era initiatives widely interpreted to have been negotiated to the detriment of U.S. interests. The Iran Deal, which Trump abandoned soon after taking office, would have removed sanctions and given the country millions in financial relief in exchange for little oversight on their commitment to shutter their nuclear arsenal. Likewise, the New START Treaty, which is still in effect until 2021, has been criticized by Trump for allowing Russia to violate its parameters. Apart from reentering the nuclear deal, Biden signaled he would further take pressure off Iran by ending U.S. support for Saudi Arabia’s war in Yemen. The conflict has been brewing since 2014, when Houthi rebels, backed by Iran, attempted to overthrow the Yemeni government. Saudi Arabia, seeking to counter Iran’s influence in the Middle East, interceded to defend Yemen through aerial bombardment. Although the bombing likely staved off the collapse of the Yemeni government, it has been blamed for civilian causalities. There is also debate in Congress as to whether America’s support for the Saudis requires military authorization.”
Blah, blah, blah, basically everything Hillary was to do, but even more over the top. Still, Biden is one of the more “conservative” ones in the Demorat race, and the rest of the pack fall over themselves in unending levels of globalism and political correctness, the sort of thing we Australians are going to see when the new class work over the constitution with the indigenous referendum. Expect to see the world turned upside down, coming soon. From a Christian perspective, I do not think in terms of enjoyment of life and consumerism, or even a future, but take a more medieval approach to things, with everything now being a lead-up to death. Death of the West, death of everything we have done, then my death. "And when the Lamb had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour". Rev 8:1
