Joe Biden is threatening to withhold weaponry sales from Israel unless the country meets Biden’s demands to scale back its military operations in the Gaza Strip. Stop us if this sounds familiar. Withholding military aid from another country unless that country does what the guy in the White House says was literally the worst form of treason as recently as 2019. That was the entire original justification for Impeachment Hoax 1.0 against President Donald Trump. As usual, the media and everyone in permanent Washington has one standard for Donald Trump and a separate standard for everyone else.
Acting on direct orders from Joe Biden, the Pentagon is looking at what weaponry requests Israel has made recently. The Biden regime is deciding which requests it should deny until Israel meets Joe Biden’s demands for fewer bombs being dropped in Gaza.
According to NBC News, “The U.S. is considering slowing or pausing the deliveries in the hope that doing so will prod the Israelis to take action.”
If you swap out the word “Israelis” in that sentence with “Ukrainians,” you should see the hypocrisy immediately. It was an impeachable offense to use a carrot-and-stick approach to foreign policy when the Bad Orange Man was in office. But now that crusty old Joe Biden, who took showers with his own daughter, is in the White House, it’s perfectly fine. It’s just the normal course of business in DC.
Biden, of course, is in terrible trouble with part of the Democrat Party’s own base over the Israel situation. In response to the October 7th “attacks,” Israel has killed tens of thousands of civilians in the Gaza Strip, including around 20,000 children. They’ve only killed a handful of Hamas terrorists while reducing the rest of the city to rubble. Most people think that’s a bit… over the top.
Joe Biden’s Palestinian-loving base is livid about it, though. They hate Israel to begin with, and they’re furious that Biden has not stepped in to try to force an immediate ceasefire. Muslims in the US are so disgusted by the situation that they say they’ll refuse to vote for Biden in November. At least under Donald Trump, they had peace in their home countries. Withdrawing their votes will be catastrophic for Biden’s 2024 hopes in swing states like Michigan, which has a sizeable Muslim population.
As you may remember from Impeachment Hoax 1.0, Donald Trump never even implied that he was going to withhold $400 million in military aid from Ukraine. At the time, there were legitimate concerns that Joe Biden had corruptly influenced a criminal investigation in Ukraine while he was Obama’s vice president. Biden had done this to cover up the fact that he and his crime family had been taking bribes from Ukraine, specifically from the natural gas company Burisma.
President Trump asked the little Ukrainian guy in the UPS driver costume (Volodymyr Zelensky) to look into those allegations. In the transcript of the phone call, Trump never even hinted that he would withhold military aid from Ukraine unless it did what he wanted. In the Articles of Impeachment drafted against him by Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), the Democrats asserted that they could read Donald Trump’s mind. They claimed, based on their mind-reading abilities, that Trump meant to threaten to withhold aid and, therefore he should be impeached. That actually happened. If you think we’re making that up, go back and read the Articles from that hoax again. It’s kind of hilarious in hindsight.
If it is not a crime for Joe Biden to demand foreign policy concessions in exchange for military and financial support from the American taxpayers, then it wasn’t a crime for Donald Trump to do the same thing (or to think about it, as Jerrold Nadler knows Trump did). It’s time for Republicans in Congress to expunge that fake impeachment from Donald Trump’s record. If Joe Biden gets to do the exact same thing, then Trump’s first impeachment is null and void.
