Expected Biden Reaction to Republican Wins

The news, no matter where you watch, agree that the results in Virginia are somewhat surprising and the New Jersey gubernatorial close race making the day a political earthquake. The big question appears to be will President Biden alter his plans and pare down his Build Back Better legislation. Then there are the lists explaining the shift to the right including but not limited to, inflation, inability to pass the Biden plan, gas prices, supply problems, Trump and so on. Simply changing the network and the mood can change but in the end they all appear to be saying the same explanations. We can tell you; they are all also quite tedious.

President Biden

Our expectations are that President Biden, plus whomever are behind him, will press even harder to force his legacy legislation at any and all costs. The Administration will give up any remaining pretext of moderation and instead demand total party unity for the Biden legacy. Manchin and other Democrat holdouts will be guaranteed to not be reelected. Almost all of these maneuvers will be performed in back rooms by word of mouth leaving no record, ruling out an open microphone. The Democrat logic is that these handouts guarantee numerous voting blocks and many of the voters opposed will have forgotten by the 2022 elections. The arguments, discussions, explanations and bargaining are about to conclude, and pure political force will be the currency in the Democrat Party. The Democrat left holds the Administration and strongly affects the House of Representatives while the Senate Democrats may break into open combat. It matters not, but if absolutely necessary, the Democrats can count on at least two or three Republicans to vote with them in the dead of the night, or we could be totally wrong; so, we apologize if such an instance should be required.

China-Taiwan and Other Threats

The numbers and types of threats in our world are mounting as the United States tends self-inflicted wounds. We will concern ourselves to the immediate two threats posed by China and very likely Russia as her ally. You have heard, as have we, about the near daily overflights of Taiwan by Chinese warplanes. Recent overflight patrols have reached sizeable numbers with one flight reportedly having more than twenty aircraft. Additionally, a fleet of Chinese and Russian warships cruised from the Sea of Japan through to the Pacific Ocean using the waterway separating northern Japan from mainland southern Japan. Things were ominous enough caused by China warning Japan, the Philippines, United States and Australia not to interfere with internal Chinese matters. They were referring to their intent to reincorporate Taiwan some time in the future. The Taiwan situation shakes the nerves more than enough; but what if there is more?

Route of Russian-Chinese Naval Fleet

Everything begins with increasing insistence, leading to demands, that Taiwan be returned to its proper home, under mainland Communist China. There will be a brief reprieve while China prepares for what President Xi claims are just war games, possibly including naval exercises with the Russians. Those war games will appear to be just another simulated taking of Taiwan with the world expecting the invasion fleet to stop and return only going half the distance to Taiwan. President Xi will watch closely reading President Biden waiting for some action or at least the threat thereof. Xi knows the Europeans are unable to have the nerve to oppose China and only the United States has such power. Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen will attempt to rouse a response from President Biden and there things will rest. Unfortunately for the world, President Biden will likely have called it a ‘lid’ and turned off from the world for the rest of the day. Restoring Taiwan under rule from Beijing is just the initial thrust by China, especially should the United States stand idly by. The message was loudly made when Russian and Chinese naval fleets sailed through the Strait of Japan, separating the northern island from the main island, that Japan is the next target. Without United States interference, Japan will fall fairly quickly to the combined Russian and Chinese militaries. How far will China go on their list of nations? For China the Philippines are simply a necessary stepping-stone on their way to Australia. There is another front where China is threatening a neighbor, India. There has been a low-scale intermittent conflict even to the point of exchanging fire. Watch Taiwan and any reaction out of Washington and if things go poorly, prepare to duck. If Afghanistan was any representation of the United States military command, then we are all in danger and better prepare to defend ourselves by ourselves. Fortunately for us, Israel has always refused to allow other nations to fight our wars, that is a wholly (or holy) Israeli responsibility. In closing we advise we watch Taiwan and wonder why the United States is hinting they will accept a nuclear armed Iran.

America Has Not Yet Failed

Does it, by all appearances, not look as if the Biden Administration has turned their backs on any remaining loose ends resulting from the Afghanistan retreat by American forces? They met their goal of removing all United States military personnel from the Afghanistan theater by their set deadline, as delineated by President Biden himself, of August 31, 2021. Here is the excerpt from the beginning of paragraph seven of President Biden’s End of the War in Afghanistan comments from August 31, 2021, “In April, I made the decision to end this war.  As part of that decision, we set the date of August 31st for American troops to withdraw.” That set the official end of the United States government’s efforts to get people out of Afghanistan. That also set in motion numerous individual efforts to assemble fellow-minded veterans, preferably those with known specialties such as Escape and Evasion (E&E), sniper and others. These groups are currently attempting to pool resources while taking precautions to avoid government infiltrations. Americans are answering the call to aid those left behind to the fullest extents of their abilities.

President Biden

There are rumors and reports, and with the modern media the two are often inseparable, that there are as many as six aircraft with American citizens on board which are being refused permission to fly out by the Taliban or by the Department of State. One success freed a mother and her three children by clandestine land route into an unnamed bordering country. The State Department in Washington DC immediately stressed their undisclosed part in assisting with this private operation. In truth, those familiar with this operation do give credit to local State Department personnel but stressed they got nothing helpful from Washington DC. Who should one believe in what has been a fast moving and hectic last few months? Honestly, we will worry about credit when everybody, both American and Afghani with approval, have been successfully rescued or their end result is known. By known we mean fully explained to the American people at the very least and hopefully to all with concerns for the lives of these human beings caught with no easy or obvious way home. The American government may have failed these people but Americans and many special Americans will go to any end for their safety and we salute those who have put themselves on the line for America keeping her word by their efforts.
