Joe Biden is the best representation of what the United States is today: a nation that is exhausted, confused, fallen apart, being overwhelmed by its enemies, and that instead of rectifying political, economic and military positions, tries by all means to please the international progressive agenda, regardless of the debacle that is coming; proof of this is that while the night in Afghanistan is coming and the totalitarians of the world are celebrating, the White House is hiring influencers from the LGBT community to “promote” mass vaccination in the country.
The current president of the United States has barely seven months in power, but he has already done all the numbers to become a serious candidate for worst president in history: in international politics he has failed, Afghanistan has been so thunderous that even the liberal press has destroyed him, at an economic level he has led the country to extremely high inflation rates and has led the debt to levels not seen since World War II, and as if this were not enough, Joe Biden has difficulty maintaining a coherent speech and needs annotations to avoid getting lost.
However, it would be quite cynical to blame Biden for the current situation, could anyone expect anything different from a gentleman who during the campaign already showed that his cognitive state had deteriorated due to the inevitable passing of the years?
If anyone is to blame for the current debacle in the United States and the president himself, it is first of all his family for exposing him to such responsibility when what Joe should be doing is taking care of his grandchildren, and of course, also the heads of the Democratic Party who decided to omit his state of health in order to snatch power from Trump. And let’s even not talk about the media (CNN, The New York Times, Washington Post, MSNBC) among others, in addition to the Big Tech Empire, which also colluded to hide from the country the seriousness of the faculties of the then candidate —by the way, also censored very serious news about the Biden family—.
Biden’s foreign policy failures
The insurrection and arrival of the Taliban to power in Kabul has made a fool of the White House and the U.S. intelligence committees themselves, who until a few hours ago were still repeating that what happened in Afghanistan was not going to happen; it is true, it was Trump who advanced negotiations to withdraw troops from that country and mediated agreements with the Taliban, but after his untimely departure from power who executed was Biden, and he did it in the worst possible way.

Today, it is difficult to speak or try to predict how this exit from Afghanistan would have been executed if Trump had remained in the White House, but what is certain is that the former president, unlike Biden, instilled fear in his enemies, and despite having an anti-war stance, he kept terrorist organizations at bay at all times, and even managed to close very important peace agreements in the Middle East and the Balkans. Yes, Trump tweeted ugly and certainly communicatively he was a disaster, but his international management was irrefutable and so were his economic numbers until the arrival of the China-born virus.
Currently, Biden has not only left the Afghans to their fate, but he is practically doing the same with the Cubans and Venezuelans; his administration has already dismantled sanctions against the tyranny of Nicolás Maduro and according to statements by his officials intends to continue lowering the aggressiveness against the socialists who run Caracas, while at the same time he has not heard the cries for freedom of the Cuban people nor has he given firm support to the historic demonstrations against Castroism on the island.
The economy according to Biden
A couple of weeks ago, the president of the United States went so far as to declare that the uncontrolled printing of money supply was in fact a strategy to reduce inflation, according to Biden this would lead to “good opportunities and jobs for people, who are actually going to reinvest that money in all the things we’re talking about, His absurd logic has already been proven hundreds of times throughout history, everyone knows that printing money wildly without any backing creates more problems than solutions, but Biden doesn’t care about that.
The United States currently has inflation levels not seen since the last great economic crisis of 2008, and in addition to this, the level of public spending requested and approved by the Democratic Party itself has made the U.S. debt larger than the size of its economy; in the face of all this, the response of the Executive, far from requesting budget cuts, has been to triple spending in order to continue pouring gasoline on the fire.
As if this were not enough, the president also decided to block the Keystone XL pipeline project, destroying thousands of American jobs, increasing the price of gasoline for its citizens, and also benefiting Russia and China with his measure.
Everything Biden does at the economic, military and international relations level hurts the United States and benefits the enemy powers. The question is why.
Will Joe Biden end up becoming the worst president in history?
So much mediocrity on the part of the president of the United States does not seem to be something natural, few administrations in history have been so catastrophic in their first months. From the state of mental health that the president shows, it can be presumed that it is clearly not him who is making the most important decisions of his presidency, but then the question arises, who are moving the rudder and why do they want to make Joe look so bad?
Kamala Harris awaits as the designated hitter to take the seat in the most important office in the world, will Joe Biden make it through the four year term or will we have an imminent replacement in the short term? Only time will tell.
