China, Russia, and Iran Are Real Winners Under Biden

His soft foreign policy decisions are already providing a boon for America’s adversaries.

We’re not even a month into the Biden-Harris regime, and it’s already obvious that America’s enemies are going to be winners. This is the risk of diverting from an “America first” mindset that was the hallmark of Donald Trump’s foreign policy.

Trump’s policy was not isolationism, but a strategy of putting the interests of the United States of America first. Joe Biden’s actions since he took office have not done so. If anything, it’s been “America’s enemies first.” And they thought Trump was a puppet of foreign governments…

China

Biden’s decision on Keystone XL is a boon to China on several levels. First, at least some Canadian oil and gas will likely head there as opposed to being used in North America. That’s bad enough, but the fact is, if domestic energy sources aren’t used, then we have to import oil from the Middle East, and that often means diverting forces from an overstretched military from confronting China.

We’re not even discussing Biden rejoining the compromised and corrupt World Health Organization, which helped China cover up the coronavirus until it became a full-blown pandemic. Meanwhile, China will continue spreading propaganda — and Biden won’t say anything against that. He’s even looking to reverse the Trump administration’s declaration that the ChiComs are committing genocide against the Uyghurs.

Russia

Biden’s energy policy will have Vladimir Putin laughing all the way to the bank. If only the stakes were just money — Biden’s planned destruction of America’s energy sector, the Green New Deal in all but name, is actually going to let Putin off the ropes in a big way.

As we discussed earlier, low oil prices aren’t just helpful to the economy; they’re also a big help in the geopolitical realm. For one thing, Putin will use the money from the necessarily higher oil and gas prices to rebuild his military. For another thing, the military assets available to reinforce NATO are going to be smaller because we will have to increase our presence in the Middle East.

In some ways, Biden rode phony claims about Russia’s undue influence on Trump’s behalf to power. But who really just gave Russia a big economic and geopolitical boost? It wasn’t Donald Trump.

Iran

But the worst of all is how Biden is resuming Barack Obama’s policy of giving away the store to Iran. He’s halted support for the Saudi military effort against Iran’s stooges in Yemen — the same stooges who fired on the USS Mason in 2016. Trump designated them terrorists, and rightly so. Biden wants to reverse that.

Biden’s also paused the arms sales that are crucial to helping American allies in the region, notably Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, contain Iran. Incidentally, he may also be placing the multiple peace treaties Trump secured between Israel and these Arab nations at risk.

Worst of all, Biden wants to bring back the failed nuclear deal — when it’s patently obvious that Iran is not only seeking nukes, but it’s also as likely as not that Iran will attempt to use them to carry out a second Holocaust.

We’re going to be in for a long four years of bad foreign policy that harms national security. Trump was serious about strengthening America’s position on the world stage. He began rebuilding the military. Now, we get Biden’s “America last” mindset for the next four years — as if the damage from Obama wasn’t bad enough.
