President Joe Biden gave some remarks on Tuesday at Lockheed Martin in Alabama about his plans to send more assistance to Ukraine. He has asked Congress for an additional $33 billion in aid after receiving $13.6 billion last month. Biden stated that his administration had spent the money. In addition, Biden said he wants to ensure a permanent effort to guarantee “democracy.” There's no end in sight to how much money it will cost. There is a lot of concern about Ukraine's borders. However, there is very little concern about ours.
While giving his usual routine, Biden managed to fumble the speech in several significant ways. At one point, Biden claimed that he was arming the Russians prior to when Russia struck. Yes, he claimed that. “Before Russia attacked, we made sure Russia had Javelins and other weapons to strengthen their defenses, so Ukraine was ready for whatever happened,” Biden exclaimed.
Imagine Ukraine and Russia listening to this. They'll certainly believe that Biden is lost at this moment. However, Democrats tell us that this is an unintentional “stutter”–as Biden continues to make gaffs repeatedly–and repeatedly. Obviously, Joe was secretly using the identity of the Soviet character in Tom Clancy’s novels while communicating with his son, Hunter. Maybe he really does believe he's arming Russia.
However, it wasn't the only mistake Biden made in his remarks about Ukraine. Biden also mistook Hungarians for Ukrainians. In the State of the Union address, Biden confused Iranians with Ukrainians. But, Joe, they're not the same. “Just a few days ago, the Wall Street Journal quoted a young Hungarian fighter saying, ‘Without the Javelins, it would have been very hard to stop the enemy pushing ahead,'” Biden stated. Is he planning to help Hungary as well as Ukraine? Do you think he knows?
An interesting topic over which he may have been able to create an issue in his Tuesday’s comments included the recent leak of the Supreme Court draft decision regarding Roe v. Wade. In his written statement, Biden stated that the draft opinion was a signal that they (Democrats) had to get out and vote pro-choice. In a nutshell, he pointed out that if the Court decides to overturn Roe, the burden will be on elected officials at all levels of the government to “safeguard women's right to decide.” It will also fall on the people to elect officials who support abortion “rights” in November. On the federal level, additional politicians favorable to abortion will be needed in the Senate with a majority of pro-choice members in the House to approve legislation to codify Roe, which Biden is working to get passed and signed into law. “It is a right we believe should be codified into law, and we pledge to defend it with every tool we possess,” the statement said. “We are deeply committed to protecting access to health care, including reproductive health care—and to ensuring that this country is not pushed backwards on women's equality.”
Then during his off-the-cuff remarks, made just hours after the statement, he was asked, “What does this mean for the midterms? What does this mean for the Democrats' argument in the midterms?” His answer? “I haven't thought that through yet.” He had “thought” about it in the official statement but hadn't thought about it when quizzed about it later? Also, the White House is releasing statements regarding what “he thinks” when it's impossible to say what he's thinking later on in the flesh?
It was already bad enough to hear that there weren't any Senators representing Delaware during the month of January. This prompted further 25th Amendment talk. It's getting worse.
