Since January of 2021, the American public has dealt with a plethora of problems. Indeed, in nearly every regard, the state of American politics on both the domestic and international levels has deteriorated. Inflation has soared out of control over the last several years and was at least partially caused by President Bidens reckless and exorbitant spending agenda. The national debt hovers above 30 trillion, more than doubling in size over the last ten years. Some 60% of Americans are still living paycheck to paycheck, and the middle class, which has been struggling for decades, is continuing to shrink and decline. Wages have largely stagnated, and the power of the dollar has declined.
Internationally, enemies of America and the western world have gone rogue. China has continued to threaten American dominance in the pacific, and recently flew an aerial maneuver over the island of Taiwan. Hamas invaded Israel and murdered over 1,000 innocent civilians, including 22 American citizens, bringing more chaos into the affairs of the middle east. In eastern Europe, Russia remains mired in a bloody conflict in Ukraine. Biden, in contrast, botched the American withdrawal from Afghanistan in the summer of 2021.
In a recent development, the Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu was seen “rallying” Israeli troops during the negotiated cease fire with Hamas. Netanyahu visited Israeli soldiers in the Gaza strip, and engaged in a political photo shoot. Netanyahu is a former Israeli special forces soldier. He becomes the first Israeli prime minister to visit the Gaza strip in two decades. Netanyahu also spoke with Joe Biden, president of the United States, to discuss the release of an American hostage, a four year old girl named Avigail Idan. Her parents were murdered by Hamas terrorists during the October 7th attack in which over 1,000 people were murdered. Netanyahu pledged that Israel remains committed to ending the war in victory and destroying Hamas; Israeli soldiers remain high spirited.
