Joe Biden is tired of dealing with the Middle East

The signals are not meant to be subtle, his advisers say. The president has made only one call to a head of state in the Middle East — Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Wednesday — which itself was delayed by more than three weeks and followed calls to other allies and even adversaries like Russia and China. He announced an end to U.S. support for…

Here what part Joe Biden of America talking about

On those rare occasions in 2020 when candidate Joe Biden emerged from his basement to stumble through a campaign stump speech, a common theme was that his administration would do more to use the vast spending powers of the federal government to help American businesses.

According to Biden, previous presidents have largely failed to take advantage of existing laws meant to give preference to U.S. businesses in the federal procurement of goods and services.

The political…

President-elect Joe Biden's Ronald Reagan problem

President-elect Joe Biden is inheriting a national crisis that has built up over 40 years.

President-elect Joe Biden’s Biggest Foreign Policy Challenge: Irredentism
