Biden splits from Israel & COVID-19 mutates wildly

בסייד

President Joe Biden’s previous claims supporting Israel have long been forgotten since taking up residence in the White House. The Democratic Party is committed to giving the Palestinians another chance to negotiate peace with Israel. The problem is the Palestinians have no idea of what the word peace really means when it comes to the Jewish State.

Biden is now interested in going against the 2nd Amendment by limiting American citizens’ rights to bear arms. But he is happy to give the Palestinians US taxpayers’ money amounting to millions of US dollars. He just does not want to come and see for himself the reality of the situation here in Israel where terrorism continues alive and well within the Palestinian territories. And there is a high probability a decent portion of those taxpayers’ funds will be given to Palestinian terrorist organizations that operate within the Palestinian territories.

In a TOI article dated March 31 by Matthew Lee, the first two paragraphs read as follows:

The Biden administration is quietly ramping up assistance to the Palestinians after former US president Donald Trump cut off nearly all aid. Since taking office with a pledge to reverse many of Trump’s Israeli-Palestinian decisions, the administration has allocated nearly $100 million for the Palestinians, only a small portion of which has been publicized.

Other sources mention that:

The administration has pledged to resume hundreds of millions of dollars in economic and humanitarian assistance to the Palestinians.

This is highly insulting that Biden, the US President, would give US taxpayers money away to groups who would most probably use those funds to provide weapons to terrorists still determined to destroy Israel. It is an ongoing threat that Israel and all its citizens face with little sympathy from the White House.

Speaking Of Borders

Palestinian territories have been fertile ground from which to launch terrorist attacks on Israeli citizens across the border. If Biden, as well as VP Harris, are not interested in witnessing the US Southern Border crisis, then to expect them to be concerned about my family and all US Citizens living here in Israel is too much to expect. That was confirmed by Biden sending his Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin to Israel on Sunday in his place. Therefore, any claims made by Biden regarding his personal concern for Israel and its citizens appear to have no validity.

The Timing Of The COVID Variants

When President Trump was in office, a COVID 19 vaccine became available much sooner than expected. The world rejoiced and vaccines began flowing all over the world. Since the original COVID-19 strain was discovered, very little was mentioned about the possibility of mutations. But since the beginning of January 2021, that has changed drastically. This was the same month that Joe Biden took over as President.

If you have been paying attention to the latest news, the COVID Variants are increasingly in the headlines and many times make up the lead stories contained in those news broadcasts.

There are two major variants making life difficult for the medical profession to control. These variants are as follows:

Lineage B.1.1.7, as the UK variantBritish variant or Kent variant (see § Names), is a variant of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. One of several variants believed to be of particular importance, it is estimated to be 40%–80% (with most estimates lying around the middle to higher end of this range)[a] more transmissible than the wild-type SARS-CoV-2 and was detected in November 2020 from a sample taken in September, during the COVID-19 pandemic in the United Kingdom; it began to spread quickly by mid-December, and is correlated with a significant increase in SARS-CoV-2 infections in the country. This increase is thought to be at least partly because of one or more mutations in the virus’s spike protein. The variant is also notable for having more mutations than normally seen.[3]

As of January 2021, more than half of all genomic sequencing of SARS-CoV-2 was carried out in the UK.[4] This has given rise to questions as how many other important variants may be circulating around the world undetected.[5][6]

The 501Y.V2 variant, also known as South African COVID-19 variant,[3] is a variant of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. One of several SARS-CoV-2 variants believed to be of particular importance, it was first detected in the Nelson Mandela Bay[4] metropolitan area of the Eastern Cape province of South Africa in October 2020,[5] which was reported by the country’s health department on 18 December 2020.[6] Phylogeographic analysis suggests this variant emerged in the Nelson Mandela Bay already in July or August 2020.[7]

The United States reported its first cases of the variant on 28 January 2021, in the state of South Carolina.[57]

South Carolina Rings A Bell — Strom Thurmond

Only 8 days after Joe Biden entered office, the South African variant shows up in, of all places, the home state of Strom Thurmond. Thurmond was against integration in the US. If Thurmond were living in South Africa instead of South Carolina, he would most likely have been one of Apartheid’s strongest supporters.

The 1948 Democratic Convention

In my previous Blog, I mention the offices where I worked had pictures displayed on the walls of the 1948 Democratic Convention where Hubert H. Humphrey’s Civil Rights speech was widely accepted by the Democratic Party.

Strom Thurmond led a delegation of Dixiecrats opposed to Humphrey’s speech who walked out of the Convention while Humphrey was speaking.

Joe Biden Delivered A Eulogy At Thurmond’s Funeral

After lying in state in the rotunda of the State House in Columbia, Strom Thurmond’s body was carried on a caisson to the First Baptist Church for services, at which then-Senator Joe Biden of Delaware delivered a eulogy.[409]

South Carolina Rings A Second Bell — Former Governor Nikki Haley

Excerpts From Former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley’s 2020 Republican National Convention speech on August 24, 2020:

President Trump did the right thing and ripped up the Iran nuclear deal. Obama and Biden led the United nations to denounce our friend and ally, Israel. President Trump moved our embassy to Jerusalem, and when the UN tried to condemn us, I was proud to cast the American veto. This president has a record of strength and success. The former vice president has a record of weakness and failure. Joe Biden is good for Iran and ISIS, great for communist China. And he’s a godsend to everyone who wants America to apologize, abstain and abandon our values.

 Last time, Joe’s boss was Obama. This time it would be Pelosi, Sanders and the squad. Their vision for America is socialism. And we know that socialism has failed everywhere. They want to tell Americans how to live, what to think, they want a government takeover of healthcare. They want to ban fracking and kill millions of jobs. They want massive tax hikes on working families. Joe Biden, and the socialist left would be a disaster for our economy.

America is a story that’s a work in progress. Now is the time to build on that progress and make America even freer, fairer, and better for everyone. That’s why it’s so tragic to see so much of the Democratic party, turning a blind eye towards riots and rage. The American people know we can do better. And of course, we value and respect every black life. The black cops who’ve been shot in the line of duty, they matter.

The black, small business owners who’ve watched their life’s work go up and flames, they matter. The black kids who’ve been gunned down on the playground, their lives matter too. And their lives are being ruined and stolen by the violence on our streets. It doesn’t have to be like this.

Nikki Haley correctly summarized many items Joe Biden has initiated which negatively affect America and its citizens. Sadly, this has taken less than three months to materialize.

Joe Biden’s eulogy at Strom Thurmond’s funeral hints at who Biden supported when it comes to the question of Civil Rights, for which Hubert Humphrey deserves credit.

Joe Biden’s support for the Palestinians is clearly showing his true colors. Perhaps Biden’s lack of concern for Israel, America’s true ally, is a major reason for G-d’s rath in the form of these COVID variants sharply increasing after Biden took office.
