OPINION: NYT Friedman delivers softball questions, as Biden outlines a GLOBAL agenda that puts America last
New York Times Columnist Thomas Friedman wants everyone to know that he has direct access to President-elect Joe Biden. His column evokes the close relationship these two have developed over their long careers of politics in the Washington D.C. swamp and Friedman’s platform is substantial.
I imagine Friedman was beyond relieved when Biden was named the President-elect. He, of course, isn’t the only one. Many of Washington D.C.’s elitist writers and columnists are breathing a sigh of relief because life will be back to normal. All the Trump-supporting “deplorables” will be gone or reduced to background noise while they pontificate what is best for the world and America.
Once again, they will be the first to report the leaks from their friends in government. It’s a very symbiotic relationship. They will continue to gaslight the American public into believing that this new administration cares about their mortgages, jobs and children. They will do this while they laugh at you from their high castles in Washington D.C. sipping wine and strategizing about their stories and how they will reshape the world, as if they could.
The Biden/ Harris administration’s foreign and national policy will be the polar opposite of Trump. In Friedman’s article, Biden makes it clear that he will remove Trump’s sanctions from Iran and that he will try to return to the Iran Nuclear deal established during his tenure with President Barrack Obama. It doesn’t matter that this is a nation that has threatened the United States, along with its closest ally Israel, without abatement for nearly 40 years. It doesn’t matter that Iran has lied to JCPOA inspectors about its nuclear program and has never yielded in its quest to become an armed nuclear power.
This doesn’t seem to bother Biden much and frankly, I don’t believe that he cares. He wants to make his former boss, President Barrack Obama, a fire brand ally and he wants to help Obama regain control of his insane legacy to treat an enemy cult regime as if it were equal to the United States on the world stage.
Friedman’s softball column with Biden fails to ask any of the tough questions. He would never treat Trump this way if it was he sitting in the seat instead of Biden. Why? Because Biden and Friedman are from the same world.
Friedman doesn’t point out that it was Trump’s policies for the American blue collar worker, minorities and women that brought our nation to one of the most substantial economies in decades with the lowest unemployment across the board. He doesn’t point out that COVID-19 lockdown policies, supported by Biden, have damaged the economy and some would argue have taken away basic Constitutional rights from the American people.
Biden touts that he will reach out to China, Iran and other global players in an effort to play nice with them after Trump. What he doesn’t say is that Trump, unlike his predecessor Obama, was one of the first to call out and hold responsible China, Russia, Iran, along with others responsible for their actions against the United States and its allies.
Friedman, instead, uses his column to do what elitists do best, let the world know he has a chummy relationship with the incoming president. He gaslights his readers into believing this 47 year politician who has never really done anything substantial for the American people is saving the world from Trump.
Friedman wants us to believe that Biden will fight for America by putting Iran, China and the rest of the world first. This is exactly how these elites think because they can’t even remember what it’s like to struggle to pay a mortgage and they want the Washington D.C. swamp back to the way it was, it’s so-called glory days where they are the center of attention and where they can live in their isolated bubbles pontificating about issues in the world they know nothing of.
It’s really quite sickening. You’ll see.
Notice at the top of the column Friedman immediately allows Biden to poke fun at Trump over allegations of election fraud. He never even bothers to ask any serious questions about the allegations many American volunteers and poll workers have testified to across the country. No, Friedman goes right to DOJ Attorney General William Barr’s statement that as of yet, his office has not found any overwhelming evidence of voter fraud that would turn over the election. He asks Biden to respond and he joked that Barr had just called him, “asking if I can get him in the witness protection program for endorsing me.”
In another answer to a softball question, Biden explains that he has already done enough as president because he has removed Trump from office.
“I feel like I’ve done something good for the country by making sure that Donald Trump is not going to be president for four more years,” Biden told Friedman. “But there’s been no moment of elation. It kind of reminds me of what’s going on with all my grandkids. You know, here I got a granddaughter who graduates with honors from Columbia. There’s no commencement. I’m the commencement speaker. It’s virtual. These kids are graduating with no parties. It’s just one of those moments. There’s a lot of work to do. I’m just focused on getting some things done as quickly as I can.”
Iran, China, Russia, among other foes of our great nation can’t wait for the Biden/ Harris ticket to be realized. These nations’ intelligence agencies have known Biden and his family for nearly 47 years. The dossiers I’m sure are very real and that makes our new President very predictable, unlike Trump was for them.
Think about the irony, a false dossier by a foreign British spy with the help of the Obama administration and paid for by Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Committee against Trump was used by the very same media, like Friedman to target Trump’s administration for four years.
Now, the foreign bullies, with the unwitting fools in the U.S. media, will use everything in their power to ensure that a Biden Harris administration will put America last and the world first.
If you don’t believe me, revisit this column in four years and don’t say, ‘I didn’t tell you so.”
