Biden debate debacle is a signal to our enemies

The dumpster fire that was President Joe Biden’s performance in Thursday’s presidential debate was a signal flare to America’s enemies that now, before a strong and capable president is elected, is the time to act. 

“Black Thursday” brought a massive admission by even the country’s most vehement liars in the Democrat party, the White House and the mainstream media to a truth most of sensible America has long realized –  that President Joe Biden is in a failing mental state and is unable to execute the responsibilities of the office of president. Though other sources debate who is actually pulling the strings in the White House, it is now blatantly clear to the U.S. and to the world that the elected president is not capable of leading, and indeed is not in charge.

So we’re left to put our trust in the humans Biden and his chain of command selected to administrate the worst presidency in history. People like Vice President Kamala Harris, who raised bail money for BLM terrorists arrested for destroying American cities; people like luggage stealing dog fetishist Sam Brinton in charge of spent nuclear fuel at the Department of Energy; people like Tyler Cherry in White House communications, whose trove of past tweets reveal support for anti-Israel groups, hatred for police and abolishing U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE). He also apparently frequently borrows Maxine Waters’ earrings.

So, nothing to worry about.

The effective vacancy in the presidency is of course the perfect time for U.S. enemies to expand their dominion in any of various ways in any of various theaters. This fact was behind Sunday night’s national security alert passed along by an anonymous source to Fox News.

“There is credible intel pointing to an attack against U.S. bases over the next week or so,” a U.S. defense official told Fox News’ Lucas Tomlinson, according to a story reported at The official, who declined to be identified because he was not authorized to speak to the media, did not elaborate on the nature of the threat, but confirmed it was not tied to the French elections, the website said. The official said U.S. bases were put on high alert, but not a lockdown. According to the military publication Stars and Stripes, the new alert applies to all U.S. military facilities and personnel in Europe, including facilities in Germany, Italy, Romanian and Bulgaria.

It is as though a decapitation strike has already been successful against the United States. The military tactic is one used to knock out the head of command and control, hoping to leave the rest of an opponent’s forces vulnerable in confusion and disarray. It is no position for the United States, with literally global interests in play at every minute, to find itself.

Such an attack may not come militarily; modern technology allows a cyberattack to be mounted instantaneously, rendering administrative functions inert and setting up a scenario of continued vulnerability within which to approach other targets. Imagine the sudden loss of any record of billions in American retirement savings or stock ownership, or the scrambling of Social Security records.  There are more than a few threats.

Obvious and ongoing conflicts involving Russia and terrorist operations by Hamas against Israel provide cover and distraction for smaller operations or movement of assets into position inside or outside the U.S. for tactical operations. The effectively open border, yet more fruit of Biden’s rotten presidential performance, has allowed an unknown number of potential terrorists into the U.S., as evidenced by the number caught at the border who had active profiles on the country’s terror watchlist.

All of them were watching the American president reveal his state of stupor in a political debate with a stronger, proven contender last Thursday night. The American scenario sets forth another seven months before an official leadership change in the U.S. could take place to place competent people in charge.

That’s more than enough time to act.

As the country works through its justified nervousness at this realization, the simple takeaway is that elections matter – that leadership matters. With its ridiculous self-absorption and obsession with entitlement, half of American voters forsook that fact in 2020, and now the nation is in peril.

Black Thursday should have been a wake up call. It probably still hasn’t reached all the people it needed to. These are frightening times.
