It’s a good thing Joe Biden was not around for World War II.
Otherwise, you would be reading this column in German with a Japanese translation for West Coast readers.
That is because Biden would have thrown in the towel shortly after the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor and Hitler’s declaration of war against the U.S.
Seeking peace in his time, like Neville Chamberlain, Biden would have agreed to turn over the U.S. West Coast to Japan and the East Coast to Germany to avoid a fight.
But being the wise negotiator that he is, Biden would have insisted that the U.S. retain the middle part of the county where Americans would be allowed to hunt buffalo and live in between the two occupying powers.
It would have been called the American Strip.
But times change even though Biden doesn’t.
And if he is allowed to linger in the White House much longer, he could oversee the country fall apart like it would have had he been at the helm during the Big One.
This time, though, Biden could oversee the country carved into two different parts after he surrenders to the forces seeking to destroy the United States.
One part, the West Coast, will go to the Communist People’s Republic of China, the leaders of which have kept the Biden family on the payroll for years.
The East Coast would go to the terrorists of the Islamic Republic of Iran, a country’s whose proxies, with American financing, have been using American bases and troops for target practice in the Mideast.
You know Iran has Biden on the run when, after 42 plus attacks on U.S. forces by Iranian proxy terrorists in the Mideast, Biden responded by blowing up a couple of empty warehouses in Syria. The terrorist Iranian proxy Houthi in Yemen even shot down a $32 million MQ-9 Reaper drone with an Iranian missile without any consequences.
A normal U.S. president would have destroyed the Yemeni launching site by now. Donald Trump would have leveled the place. Biden looks for another empty warehouse to bomb.
Iran believes Biden confuses terrorists with tourists.
Some say that the Iranian backed terrorist Hamas has already taken over parts of the U.S., as well as its institutions like Harvard, Cornell and the Democrat Party, judging by pro-Hamas demonstrations.
Americans forced to live in the American Strip who want to leave could follow the remaining buffalo herds into Canada, if the Canadians let them in—the Americans, that is, not the buffalo. Both will soon be extinct anyway.
Of course, this is all a fantasy.
But what is not fantasy is Israel, the only democracy in the Mideast and a staunch U.S. ally ever since the nation was founded after World War II.
After vowing to stand by Israel when Hamas Islamic terrorists invaded Israel and slaughtered some 1,400 Israelis-—including 30 Americans—and took hostages, Biden has gone wobbly.
“This was an act of sheer evil,” Biden said three days after the Oct 7 attack. “Babies being killed, entire families slain, young people massacred…women raped, assaulted, paraded as trophies.”
Sounding like Winston Churchill upon the anticipated Nazi invasion of the UK in WW II, Biden said, “The United States has Israel’s back.” He added, “We will make sure the Jewish and democratic State of Israel can defend itself today, tomorrow, as we always have. We’re with Israel.”
That was, of course, before the well-organized, well financed anti-Israel, pro terrorist Hamas demonstrations broke out across the country and fractured the Democrat Party. Biden quickly toned down his rhetoric and came out in support of a pause in the fighting, which only helps Hamas. He’ll be pushing for a cease fire next.
Upon the expected Nazi invasion of England, Churchill said, ‘We will fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender.” The British people believed him. The Nazis did too.
With Biden, not so much. Throw a punch, Joe.
