Biden Confuses Syria for Libya Not Once, But 3 Times in Bumbling Response to Russia Question

Western Journal



The Biden administration is officially a global laughingstock.

The events of the past few days underscore that Vice President Kamala Harris is not ready for prime time. And her boss, President Joe Biden, is well past his prime — not because of his age, but because of his obvious cognitive decline.

At a Sunday news conference on the final day of a meeting of the leaders of the world’s seven most industrialized nations in Cornwall, England, the doddering career politician confused Syria with Libya three times in response to a simple question about Russia’s military actions in Syria.

Biden repeatedly called Syria “Libya” during his painfully incoherent stammering.

“We can work together with Russia,” he said. “For example, uh, in Libya, we should be opening up the passes to be able to go through and — provide, uh, provide, uh — food assistance, an economic, I mean, vital assistance to, uh, a population that is in real trouble.”

During the course of a 90-second statement, Biden appeared to lose his train of thought multiple times.

“I think I’m gonna try very hard — by the way, there’s places where — I shouldn’t be starting off by negotiating in public here, but let me say it this way — Russia has engaged in activities which we believe are contrary to international norms,” he continued.

“But they have also, um, uh, bitten off some real problems they’re gonna have trouble chewing on. And, for example, the rebuilding of uh, oh uh, Syria, of, uh, of Libya — you know, this is — they’re there. And as long as they’re there without the ability to bring about some order in the region, you can’t do that very well without providing for the basic economic needs of people, so I am hopeful that we can find an accommodation that where we can save the lives of people in, for example, in, uh, in Libya.”

Contrast Biden’s disjointed rambling during a 90-second statement to the frequent, 90-minute news conferences held by former President Donald Trump, where the establishment media parsed every word in an effort to mock and attack him.

Conservative commentator Eric Bolling echoed the sentiments of numerous Americans when he wrote in a Twitter post: “Scary stuff folks … How much longer will this go on before someone steps in?”

Republican Tennessee congressional candidate Robby Starbuck recalled that the Biden camp had insisted the 78-year-old Democrat was prepared for the G-7 summit because he had been “studying for weeks,” as Fox News reported Thursday.

Starbuck tweeted: “Remember Jill Biden said this week that Joe has been ‘studying for weeks,’ he was ‘over prepared’ and said ‘Joe loves foreign policy, this is his forte.’ Joe’s own staff admits he was wrong and meant Syria.”

“If this is his ‘forte,’ then we’re in some real trouble,” Starbuck warned.

Shen Shiwei, a reporter for Chinese state media, gleefully jabbed at the latest warmongering Democrat installed in the White House.

The communist journalist was presumably referring to this: The U.S. military under former President Barack Obama dropped more than 26,000 bombs in 2016 alone, according to a 2017 report by Micah Zenko, a senior fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations. That was seven years after Obama was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.

Despite Obama’s bombing blitz, ISIS expanded and the Middle East became more unstable during his tenure.  Even leftists admit this.

Australian Sky News host Chris Smith expressed horror at the septuagenarian’s behavior during the summit, saying “he shouldn’t be leading” the United States.

On Monday, Smith said there has been growing worldwide concern about Biden’s mental capacity, “which is just painful to watch sometimes.”

At one point, the broadcaster showed a distressing video clip of a confused Biden bumbling around a coffee shop in Cornwall.

“Take a look at this footage of the president wandering around lost in a café in England,” he said. “It was posted on Friday and largely ignored by mainstream media.”

Smith quipped, “He looks stunned!”

After reviewing the disturbing montage of unsettling blunders Biden committed in just a single weekend, the journalist remarked: “This guy will be very lucky to last his full term.”

Smith verbalized the thoughts of countless terrified Americans. This is a tragic situation for the United States and for its allies around the world.

Off-Duty Firefighter Jumped by Mob Who Tell Him It's 'Fight Night' Before Brutal Beating

Western Journal



Asking for a little old-fashioned respect can be the prelude to a beatdown in Mayor Bill de Blasio’s New York City. The New York Post has released video of a Friday night incident in which a rabid mob of teenagers surrounded and then attacked an off-duty firefighter as he walked his dog near his home in the borough of Queens. Republican mayoral candidate Curtis Sliwa, who founded the civic protection group the Guardian Angels in 1979, posted the video to Twitter. Warning: The following video contains graphic images and language that some readers will find disturbing. Last night in Middle Village a mob of kids attacked a man who asked them to stop blasting fireworks. #NYPD from the 104th precinct were there but did nothing. The community reached out to #NYC Mayoral candidate #CurtisSliwa & the #GuardianAngels to find these vicious teens — Curtis Sliwa for NYC Mayor (@CurtisSliwa) July 24, 2021 The 44-year-old victim, whose name was not released by the Post, said he is among those who have objected to the deterioration of his community,  and taken the dangerous stand of telling teenagers to behave as if rules really mattered. Retribution for preaching civility arrived Friday night. “There were at least 100 kids … I was walking my dog. They just picked me out and approached me,” the firefighter told the Post in a Saturday interview. “One kid took his shirt off and said, ‘it’s fight night!’ He said he was 19 and said, ‘I could fight you.’ Everyone took their cell phones out. There were cell phones everywhere,” the victim said. “They all came at me…A kid came up behind me and hit me in the back of the head with a bottle and I let go of the dog,” he said. With the dog barking…

Olympic Cyclist Celebrates Victory as She Crosses the Finish Line, Then Learns a Gold Medal Isn't Coming

Western Journal



Neither the gold medal winner nor the woman who celebrated when she thought she had won could quite believe the results of the women’s Olympic bicycle road race on Sunday. Dutch rider Annemiek van Vleuten put on a massive gold medal-worthy display of victory as she crossed the finish line. But there was one catch. Anna Keisenhofer of Austria had been so far ahead of the rest of the pack that two minutes before van Vleuten had celebrated her finish, Keisenhofer had already had won the race,  according to Cycling News. Van Vleuten waved her arms in triumph and embraced members of her team, only to learn the truth after someone knowing the facts poured cold water on the celebration. Olympics: Van Vleuten celebrates but mistakes silver for gold #Tokyo2020 — (@Cyclingnewsfeed) July 25, 2021 “I didn’t know. I was wrong. I didn’t know,” she said. “This is an example (of what happens) if you ride an important race like this without communication. All World Tour races have communication, and now it’s the three of us standing here and wondering who has actually won,” van Vleuten said, referring to teammates Marianne Vos and Anna van der Breggen, according to CNN. In most races, cyclists are in radio communication with their teams, but that is not allowed in the Olympics. “I’m gutted about that, of course,” she said. Although the realization that she had not won a gold medal hurt, van Vleuten said winning a silver medal remained an achievement. “I’m really proud of the medal, because I did not have an Olympic medal. It’s also a silver medal with a shine on it, because I felt super good today,” said van Vleuten. “My goal was to be at my best-ever level here, and I think I nailed that. It’s…
