Why President Sleepy Joe will keep Australia up at night

TAFKAS does not often veer into foreign policy matters but these are extraordinary times.  But this is his take on the US election as just posted on the Spectator AU – Why President Sleepy Joe will keep Australia up at night.

Before being jumped on, yes the results are not final and yes there will be litigation.  However, given current information …

it is looking likely that Joe Biden will be the next President of the United States, the Democrats will retain control of the House and the Republicans control of the Senate.

Given this, what does this mean for Australia.

On foreign policy, Australia and the rest of the world have reason to be alert. While Biden may be surrounded by some sensible people who are familiar to Australians, including Kurt Campbell and Michelle Flournoy, Biden will also be surrounded by less sensible people such as Kamala Harris and Susan Rice. But the main issue will not be those around Biden but Biden himself.

Apart from his clearly diminished faculties, Biden’s foreign policy judgement is, as the French describe, merde. Robert Gates, former Defence Secretary for both President Obama and President Bush 43 wrote in his recent book that Biden has “been wrong on nearly every major foreign policy and national security issue over the past four decades”. This is the Joe Biden whose default solution to sectarian conflict anywhere in the world is to partition and hasn’t partition worked a treat every it has been applied in modern history.

There are other things to keep Australia’s alert, but:

The moral to the story is that while many have focused on the result for the Presidential election, the numbers in the US Senate are equally important in containing the insane policy fantasies of the US Democratic Party.

    Well written TAFKAS. He’s also got the Kruddster in NYC to call on for advice. I’m ashamed to say I had breakfast at the Hotel Canberra just before he resumed the job as PM and he was right next to me…but I wasn’t sure if my butter knife was sharp enough

  2. Up The Workers!

    If Creepy Sniffer-Joe does manage to lie and cheat his corrupt way into the White House, with the collusion of crooked Dementiacrat-appointed Judges, I reckon that the A.L.P. should elbow (or more traditionally, knife) AnAl the Brothel-Hopper out of the way and reinstall Bonking Billy Short-One back in his former role as Party Leader.

    He and Snifter-Joe have a real affinity with their shared Leftard fondness for the kiddies. They could each elaborate on their individual experiences in that regard and talk about the first thing to pop up.

    Good Leftard bonding point.

    A couple of weeks ago I watched as Joe said that Russia was the greatest threat to the USA. It was a cold war flashback.

    Whilst Russia will always present some challenges, China is undoubtedly the greatest economic and military threat to the USA – by a substantial margin.

    Maybe Joe was asleep at that briefing.

    Not asleep. In their pocket.

    Biden won’t be in charge long. With moves underway well before the election to start process for removal of a sitting President, made to look like it was about Trump under grounds of ill-health, but the reality is that it was all about getting ready for Biden being President and then removed to make way for Kamala.

    I still think the only nation that directly has threatened us is North Korea. Keeping little rocket man in his box is vital, at some point he test Biden, hopefully he keeps up the maximum pressure tactic of Trump whilst offering a negotiated way out that’s acceptable to the West also. Just saying we won’t engage didn’t appear to work in the past.

  8. Catcalling Inebriate

    Let’s see now. What do Trump’s dealings with Putin, Erdogan and Duterte have in common? Property deals. What about the Saudis? Yep. Indonesia? Uh-huh. And who benefitted when he decided – without any advice from the military – to leave the Kurdish ally high and dry in Syria? Erdogan and Putin.
    Is there a single major ally Trump has not degraded? Nope.
    Is there a single one of the generals chosen by Trump for key roles who is not now backing Biden? No.
    Is there a single security adviser chosen by Trump who is not backing Biden? No.
    Is there anyone left in his coterie from his initial team other than his own family? No.

    Then there’s Biden’s promise to use a big stick to force Australia to make reductions to its carbon emissions.

    If we do end up with President Hair Sniffer, I will be waiting until the next black guy gets killed by a cop. Biden will then have the chance to show how he’s going to heal and unite the nation. Over to you, Joe.

  12. one old bruce

    Yes, looks like the world will have a ‘Weekend at Bernies’ ‘leader of the free world’ for a while at least.

    While behind the scenes ‘Dr Jill’ and Kamala Gopalan (she’s a high caste Brahmin you untermenschen!) fight it out over who’s the real boss behind the scenes.

  13. If it’s Biden, when he is told he has resigned, who will Harris pick as vice-pres.
    No-one has asked this.
    Maybe one of the squad.

  14. one old bruce

    In Chennai 10 years ago I was actually taken to the exclusive Mylapore Brahmin club by one very ‘high caste’ acquaintance. He wanted to show me how very classy they all were, not like all the poor folks on the street who he treated like dirt. I saw his servants literally grovel to him, and he was a bully, so our acquaintance was short, despite him introducing me to some very prominent people (showing off). I have Brahmins I call friends but only those who have some sense of humility and shame about their privileged status in their culture.

    I ignore Kamala’s father as he seems a sensible and decent old school chap. She seems to want advertise her Indian connections, so I am sharing what I know about that. Americans mostly have no idea about how little she has to be proud of on that side, and I’m talking about South Indian Brahmins specifically.

    Scumball joe is the true Manchurian candidate.

    Gary, ‘Dr Jill’ will not give up so easily, hence ‘Weekend at Bernie’s’. It’s obvious from how she pushed him thru the campaign. She wants to be First Lady very badly.

    Oddly, the same thing happened in Chennai Tamil Nadu when a famous old actor was made Chief Minister. After his death a power struggle between his wife and his (on screen at least) mistress. The mistress won (she was an actress after all):

    Here’s a song for Kamala: ‘Why all this fuss, sister?’
    https://youtu.be/YR12Z8f1Dh8?list=PLP4N_z7Std9bQ4CkMJfS8RazFM-I5lliK

    ‘white a skin a girl a girl a, girl a heart a black a’
    Ha! Why this kolaveri Kamala di?

  18. Bruce

    Blocked at Tim Blair’s for “naughty” words.

    Some poster referred to the USA as a “democracy”.

    A “democracy”?

    No. It was founded as a REPUBLIC but with principles of democracy built in.
    A brief run through the list of countries that had or still have “Democratic” in their formal titles is instructive.

    As Lord Alexander Tytler noted in: “The Fall of the Athenian Republic.”
    “A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves money from the public treasure. From that moment on the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most money from the public treasury, with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy followed by a dictatorship. The average age of the world’s great civilizations has been two hundred years. These nations have progressed through the following sequence: from bondage to spiritual faith, from spiritual faith to great courage, from courage to liberty, from liberty to abundance, from abundance to selfishness, from selfishness to complacency, from complacency to apathy, from apathy to dependency, from dependency back to bondage.”

    As Benjamin Franklin left the Constitutional Convention, he was reportedly asked what kind of government the founders would propose. He replied, “A republic, if you can keep it.”

    Apparently “republic”, “democracy”, “government” etc are “non-Woke”. Or, maybe “spiritual” or “civilization” upset the gate-keepers.

    You might ponder the following; Democracy is a ‘system of government’ where communism can flourish unhindered’. It does not matter if it is a ‘democratic republic’ or ‘democracy under a Monarch’, the end result is the same. The public record abounds with examples of Communist atrocities. Adopting communist principles is an advance to barbarism.
    Once communists are in full control there is no such thing as democracy!

    … he [KRuddy] was right next to me…but I wasn’t sure if my butter knife was sharp enough

    Only one way to find out.

  21. covid ate my homework

    Kamala Harris cannot be President because neither of her parents were subject to the jurisdiction of the United States. However when that time comes that will be what it’s all about because the U.S. Constitution is just a piece of paper. Just like your birth certificate, marriage certificate, mortgage contract and death certificate.

    Here’s a song for Kamala

    Here’s another

  23. covid ate my homework

    I’ll never forget the day I received my fathers death certificate. It was in an envelope within the envelope with a warning that I should have people around to support me. It arrived 20 days after I’d arranged to have his remains dropped in a hole in the ground (his wishes) and 20k lighter. What a surprise to finely discover that my dad had passed. I was dumbfounded.

    Trumps ambassadors around the world will be worried. Hillaree and Biden know how to make a position vacant.

    As to foreign policy, Biden is lauded as a master. Yet he hasnt actually done much other than spot troughs for his family and claim a spotters fee. Russia, ukraine and china being cases in point.

    I note he has called for calm, unity and coming together after the election. Im sure many republicans will agree to give him exactly the same calm, unity and coming together that was given to Trump.

  25. Ian of Brisbane

    Taiwan will find out first, and soon.

  26. stackja

    Will Joe read SOTU? The thing?

  27. EllenG

    Jock: are you unaware of trump sacking the Ukraine amabassador over a conversation with a couple of dodgy characters on his Washington hotel? It was taped. She was blocking a corrupt deal.
    How many professionals lost jobs or quit under Trump?
    The man is a grub and a fake.

  28. Lee

    The man is a grub and a fake.

    Like your man, Biden, troll?

    Meanwhile, as all eyes are on Washington, we get this from Comrade Xi:

    https://www.abc.net.au/news/2020-11-06/china-daily-warns-australia-economic-pain-export-ban/12857988

    What could any country with an iota of self-respect say in reply except ‘F**k off you Communist scumbags’?

  30. Daily llama

    Strong rumour Biden will present the next State of the Union address to the workers at Union Pacific Railroads in Omaha.
    He’s also issued arrest warrants for Boris and Natasha- agents Rocky and Bullwinkle have the case, and he’s demanded the resignation of Gen Douglas McCarthur for his actions in Korea.
    One thing I didn’t know about the new POTUS- he’s quite the literary type. His next volume of poems includes
    I almost remember the Alamo
    I left part of my memory in San Francisco
    The ballad of Joe’s long smoko
    And; talking Irish, with Paddy O’bama

  31. mareeS

    Old Lefty, +++ your comment. Australia has never bowed to bullies, and CCP is now the worst of all, which is becoming its undoing, as it has in the past by over-reaching and hubris.
