White House advisers were forced to 'clarify' a comment by Joe Biden that the US would defend Taiwan in the event of an attack by China, in breach of a longstanding policy that states otherwise. 'Yes,' he responded when asked in a CNN town hall about defending Taiwan. 'We have a commitment to that.'Biden's statement was at odds with the long-held US policy known as 'strategic ambiguity,' where Washington helps build Taiwan's defenses but does not explicitly promise to come to the island's help in the event of an attack. After Thursday's town hall, a White House spokesperson was forced to clarify the president's position,

I'm surprised that China has not taken Taiwan already. They could occupy it in one day and there would be no resistance from anybody. False messaging like this from the Idiot-in-Chief could bring catastrophic results and Joe's beskirted military leadership is in no position to resist.

So when did this nation ever agree to a policy that we would deny defense aid to the free nation on the island of Taiwan? Did the USA ever get senate approval of a treaty with the Communist party ruling the Chinese people on the mainland agreeing that we would not defend the free Chinese on the island of Taiwan? The free Chinese nation that was once a member of the UN Security Council?

China insisted that the projectile was not a missile, but was rather a spacecraft undergoing a routine test. So since when does a SPACECRAFT have a TARGET

China is not going to invade Taiwan. Its an island, any invasion would be wiped out on the beaches. Hitler wanted to invade England in 1940 but never could only because it is an island. Another thing the US had never promised to defend South Korea in 1950 either, but we did.

Biden works alone. I'll bet he never asked the skirted Generals about exiting Afghanistan either he just did it one his own. True to form Biden would act alone again always on the wrong side of a decision. Taiwan is just the hot button between China and the US Joe Biden is the trigger mechanism. Potato salad brain only popped off to entertain the hand picked crowd but I'll bet they were shocked. What a loud mouth buffoon Joe Biden is. FJB and the horse he rode in on.

Sure enough, the CNN town hall performed terribly in the ratings, according to Joe Concha.(Tweets) As Concha laid out in his column for The Hill: According to early numbers from Nielsen Media Research, the Biden town hall from Baltimore, which was moderated by Anderson Cooper, delivered just 1.2 million viewers from 8 p.m. ET to 9:30 p.m. In the younger demographic (25 to 54-year-olds) that advertisers covet most, the commander in chief commanded a paltry 271,000 viewers.

Sen. Bernie Sanders, the bill’s Senate author, has, for years, praised systems across the Atlantic. As have many other Democrats.There are numerous specific arguments against the agenda that further expands an already onerous bureaucratic state, but it is the idea that traditional American life needs reimagining that should be rejected first.

Preliminarily, it is tragic that 42-year-old Halyna Hutchins, a rising cinematographer in Hollywood, died yesterday on the set of Rust, a movie being filmed in Santa Fe, New Mexico. My thoughts are with the loved ones she left behind. Having said that, I cannot escape a feeling that karma had a hand in this one because the finger on the trigger of the gun that killed Hutchins belonged to Alec Baldwin, a hysterical leftist who is fanatically opposed to the Second Amendment. To give a sense of Baldwin’s hostility to gun rights, in 2018, the smug and constitutionally illiterate Baldwin had some harsh words for Dana Loesch, an NRA spokeswoman

First things first. National Review Editor Rich Lowry is not a “die-hard” Trump fan. We’ll offer several examples later in the article — but let’s first get to the business at hand. As Lowry sees it, it’s a fool’s game to overestimate Trump’s dominance of the Republican Party this far in advance of the 2024 election. Lowry writes, in an op-ed posted by The New York Post on Friday, that Republican politicians who think the Republican Party belongs to Trump can be forgiven, given that he not only survived two impeachments and the January 6 attack against the U.S. Capitol; he has since continued to thrive.

Let’s start with the creepiness and the incoherence. Here’s Joe Biden claiming that top corporations “don’t pay a cent” in taxes with that creepy stage whisper voice.
