Joe Biden’s political career is hanging by a thread.
Biden thought he had one last chance to turn his fortunes around.
But Joe Biden just got humiliated by this devastating announcement.
Presidents have the most control over foreign affairs.
A president does not need Congress to cut a deal with a foreign leader or announce a new trade package or international cooperation agreement.
Joe Biden followed this playbook as Biden fled to the Middle East in the face of a 33 percent approval rating and Democrats and the corporate media openly demanding Biden not run for re-election due to his age and unpopularity.
Gas prices surged to record levels thanks in large part to Joe Biden following through on a campaign promise to destroy the American oil and natural gas industry.
Biden cut off new leases on federal lands for drilling and halted construction on the Keystone XL pipeline.
Instead of boosting the American energy industry Biden traveled to Saudi Arabia hat in hand to grovel before Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (MBS) to beg the Saudis to ramp up oil production.
This became an issue due to Biden campaigning on marking MBS an international pariah over the claims MBS ordered the killing of controversial activist Jamal Khashoggi.
Khashoggi wrote columns for the Washington Post but was also accused of being an influence agent for the Qatari government.
The media seized on Khashoggi’s killing to rupture the alliance Donald Trump built with MBS to counter Iran and stop the terrorist regime’s nuclear program.
Biden’s claim to make MBS a pariah came back to haunt Biden because despite Biden begging MBS to increase his nation’s oil production, MBS embarrassed Biden by saying Saudi Arabia was near its peak oil production levels.
Fox News reports:
Prince Mohammed bin Salman says Saudi Arabia is almost tapped out on increasing oil production.
The Saudi prince said that they will not have the capacity to produce beyond 13 million barrels per day.
According to the US Energy Information Administration, the country is currently producing approximately 10,211,000 barrels of crude oil per day.
Joe Biden not only humiliated himself and damaged America’s standing in the world, his political allies felt free to criticize him.
Congressman Adam Schiff blasted Biden on social media as a pathetic figure kowtowing to Saudi Arabia.
If we ever needed a visual reminder of the continuing grip oil-rich autocrats have on U.S. foreign policy in the Middle East, we got it today.
One fist bump is worth a thousand words.
— Adam Schiff (@RepAdamSchiff) July 15, 2022
Adam Schiff would like to seek higher office in California and attacking Biden for begging for more oil while Schiff supports the Green New Deal is good Democrat Party politics.
Before the trip Washington Post publisher Fred Ryan – a normally friendly voice and ally for Biden and other Democrats – ripped Biden for ‘eroding America’s moral authority’ on the trip.
“About-faces such as the one Biden is making erode our moral authority and breed anti-American resentment. They communicate to democracy activists and reform-minded governments worldwide that Washington is an unreliable partner. And that sows confusion and sabotages our diplomacy — the opposite of what Biden says his trip is trying to achieve,” Ryan wrote.
Biden, other Democrats, and the corporate media seized on the Khashoggi killing to attack Donald Trump.
But Trump’s arrangement with MBS and the Saudi government helped broker the Abraham Accords – where Middle Eastern nations recognized Israel for the first time – and then served to check the terrorist government in Iran’s nuclear and territorial ambitions.
Democrats claimed Biden was a master on foreign policy due to chairing the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.
Once again – however – it was proven that Donald Trump ran circles around Biden on foreign policy and that America paid the price for Joe Biden’s disastrous decision making.
