Old Joe Biden is going to Alaska, thereby making it clear that as far as he is concerned, America can go to hell.
The doddering corruptocrat who is currently serving as the alleged president of the United States plans to mark the twenty-second anniversary of the deadliest jihad attacks in American history, and one of the most significant in the history of the entire world, by getting about as far away as he can get from the sites of the attacks while remaining in the United States: Old Joe will be spending Sept. 11, 2023 in Alaska. The Daily Caller’s Brianna Lyman labeled Biden’s 9/11 plans a “slap in the face,” and that’s exactly what they are. What else could anyone expect from this America-Last regime?
It all started when one of Biden’s old congressional henchmen, former Rep. Barney Frank (D-LGBTQWTF), dismissed complaints about the plan to send the regime’s figurehead to Alaska instead of to New York, Pennsylvania, or even the Pentagon, the three places where the attacks actually occurred, as “insignificant” and “not a big deal.” Old Joe and his massive taxpayer-funded entourage will stop in Alaska for a quick 9/11 memorial ceremony (during which Biden is likely to be impatiently checking his watch again) on their way back from Vietnam.
What’s Biden going to be doing in Vietnam? Reporting on the success of the Marxist infiltration and subversion of the American government and business superstructure? According to the White House, Old Joe will be meeting with his fellow Commie, Vietnamese General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong, “and other key leaders to discuss ways to further deepen cooperation between the United States and Vietnam. The leaders will explore opportunities to promote the growth of a technology-focused and innovation-driven Vietnamese economy, expand our people-to-people ties through education exchanges and workforce development programs, combat climate change, and increase peace, prosperity, and stability in the region.”
That’s all just so much blather except for the bit about “climate change,” which is a massive endeavor to gut the American economy, socialize what remains of it, and hand over global economic hegemony to Communist China. It’s peculiarly fitting that Old Joe will be spreading climate change propaganda on the eve of the 9/11 anniversary; the massive attack on the United States that took place on that day is now being followed by the destruction of the nation from within by venal kleptocrats including Biden, under the cynical rubric of saving the environment.
Lyman accordingly noted that “Biden wants to waste time going to Vietnam for climate change and other economic prosperity missions for Vietnam, mind you, while he has record high inflation problems still plaguing the United States, that’s one thing. Do not tell me he did not have the ability to say, ‘I want to show the American people I still stand with them.’ He’s going to Alaska for convenience and that is a slap in the face.”
Indeed. But it clearly shows the mindset and priorities of Old Joe and his handlers. If he made more of the 9/11 anniversary, some people might actually get the impression that he cares about defending America, as well as about restoring and protecting the republic. Just the opposite is true. That’s clear from his Vietnam trip. The Vietnam War, after all, was the towering formative experience for Biden’s hippy-dippy generation, solidifying the Vietnam-era American Left as pro-Marxist, deeply self-righteous and sanctimonious, and adamant in its opposition to anything that would enhance the safety and security, to say nothing of the prosperity, of Americans. So it’s fitting that Joe would be on his way back from Vietnam when he stops in at his perfunctory 9/11 observance. As Americans, we’re all still on the way back from Vietnam, too, all these years later.
Twenty-two years after 9/11, the Biden regime is busy framing its principal opponent for various crimes, and thereby systematically destroying the republic that the jihadis so severely damaged on that fateful day. The biggest terror threat the nation faces, regime talking heads have assured us repeatedly, are not Islamic jihadis, whom they steadfastly refuse to admit even exist, but “white supremacists,” by which they mean law-abiding citizens who oppose the regime. Twenty-two years after 9/11, the jihadis have not won, but internal enemies and saboteurs who share many of their authoritarian objectives and have often counted them as their allies are near victory.
Old Joe and his henchmen, however, have not counted on the spirit of America that we saw in the immediate aftermath of 9/11. That spirit is not dead. And whether in 2024 or at some other time, it will render fruitless the authoritarian Left’s quest for total victory.
