Biden delivers tough talk on Iran as he opens Mideast visit

President Joe Biden on Wednesday opened his first visit to the Mideast since taking office by offering anxious Israeli leaders strong reassurances of his determination to stop Iran’s growing nuclear program, saying he’d be willing to use force as a “last resort.”

The president’s comments came in an interview with Israel’s Channel 12 taped before he left Washington and broadcast Wednesday, hours after the country’s political leaders welcomed him with a red-carpet arrival ceremony at the Tel Aviv airport.

“The only thing worse than the Iran that exists now is an Iran with nuclear weapons,” Biden said. Asked about using military force against Iran, Biden said, “If that was the last resort, yes.”

U.S. ally Israel considers Iran to be its greatest enemy, citing its nuclear program, its calls for Israel’s destruction and its support for hostile militant groups across the region.

The U.S. and Israel are expected Thursday to unveil a joint declaration cementing their close military ties and strengthening past calls to take military action to halt Iran’s nuclear program. A senior Israeli official said before Biden arrived that both countries would commit to “using all elements of their national power against the Iranian nuclear threat.” The official spoke on condition of anonymity pending the formal release of the statement.

Israeli leaders made clear as they marked Biden’s arrival that Iran’s nuclear program was the top item on their agenda.

“We will discuss the need to renew a strong global coalition that will stop the Iranian nuclear program,” said Israeli Prime Minister Yair Lapid, as he greeted the Democratic president at the airport ceremony in Tel Aviv.

Biden said he would not remove Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps from the U.S. list of terrorist organizations, even if that kept Iran from rejoining the Iran nuclear deal.

The only news in that article is he pre-taped the comments, likely because he cant do off the cuff public speaking due to advanced dementia.

I like you Biden sunglasses person, you keep lobbing softballs we can knock out of the park.

More amazing news from the Biden administration, who just keep proving how disastrous his predecessor was by comparison.

Way to go, Joe! :130:
Biden announces modest steps to fight climate's ‘clear and present danger’

President Joe Biden sought to keep his faltering climate change agenda alive Wednesday after bruising defeats in Congress and at the Supreme Court, and he vowed to take matters into his own hands as heatwave records topple in the U.S. and Europe and his climate goals drift further out of reach.

For now, those steps will be modest: Biden’s administration will clear the way for new offshore wind energy in the Gulf of Mexico and Atlantic Ocean, he announced during a visit at a former coal-burning power plant in Somerset, Mass. And the government will spend $2.3 billion to bolster communities’ defenses against climate change and make it easier for low-income households to purchase efficient air conditioners to combat searing heat.

Those are far smaller steps than the ones he promised when he ran for the White House two years ago, when he vowed to put the U.S. at the forefront of the international effort to limit warming.

Biden framed the fight against the greenhouse gases that are heating the planet as one of his highest priorities, alongside combating the pandemic.

But those ambitions suffered a major blow last week when Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) rejected plans to spend $300 billion to expand clean energy incentives. And last month, the Supreme Court erected legal obstacles to the federal government’s ability to regulate carbon dioxide from power plants, the second largest source of the greenhouse gas.

“As president, I have a responsibility to act with urgency and resolve when our nation faces clear and present danger. And that’s what climate change is about. It is literally, not figuratively, a clear and present danger,” Biden said.

His comments come as more than 100 million Americans swelter under 100-degree temperatures and European nations face record heat. The Western U.S. is suffering from the worst megadrought in 1,200 years, drying up reservoirs and slowing the flow of the Colorado River that supplies water to tens of millions of people.

Biden was visibly sweating as he delivered his speech on a sweltering 90-plus degree afternoon in southeastern Massachusetts, the second day of a heat wave that’s forced communities across the state to open cooling centers for residents and declare heat emergencies. Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and Rep. Bill Keating (D-Mass.) donned black baseball caps to shield themselves from the beating sun.

As he has since the campaign, Biden sought to frame his climate agenda in terms of spurring job growth in new competitive arenas of the economy. The backdrop for Wednesday’s appearance helped sent that message: Biden spoke facing the site of the shuttered Brayton Point coal power plant that’s being retooled into Massachusetts’ first offshore wind manufacturing facility, a dusty and rocky expanse on the shores of the Taunton River replete with towering power lines and vast warehouses in the process of being repurposed for producing wind energy.

Joe got the Kovids.

I hope it's the same strain Bowl Cut Boy has had multiple times, the strain that miraculously disappears for public appearances and handling people's food as soon as the political heat blows over on whichever issue is set to embarrass the government.

Get well soon Joe. :up:

Biden approval in key 2024 state hits record low
Joe Biden has a 31% national approval rating.

President Biden's hit another record low approval rating this week of 27%, according to a poll conducted in the key 2024 state of Iowa.

Des Moines Register/Mediacom Iowa Poll Thursday revealed Biden's approval dropped 8% among Iowans since March, giving him the second-lowest approval rating of any president in the state. Sixty-seven percent of voters in the Hawkeye State say they disapprove of the job he is doing.

According to the poll, 32% of Iowans would rather see Trump run in 2024 than Biden.

The survey found that 67% of Iowans do not want him to seek re-election in 2024, and 23% do want him as the Democrat nominee.

.....and yet if President Biden went head to head with Trump in 2024, the US voters would elect Biden once again and Trump would be a loser for the second straight time.....according to a recent poll.

It must all be so confusing for Joe.

Poor guy, I bet when he sees Hillary next time, he'll wag his finger and say, "I did not have sexual relations with that woman..." thinking that's what saved Willy's life.

I just hope Joe pulls through this Kovids infection so he can face the electorate in '24. It's in America's best interests to have an incumbent with record low popularity running for the Democrats. It's in Canada's best interests, too.

We should send the old fool to Russia - to shake hands with Putin.

Then we would save $100 billion on the Ukraine war.

What is the dementia patient talking about as he promotes the booster shot - "TO VACCINATE THE WORLD"

Is he trying to give everyone Covid?

fool got covid.

So this idiot causes a fuel crisis with stupid policies that he enacted, and now he is "solving" it. He doesn't deserve any credit for "solving" a crisis that he himself created in the first place. Just ridiculous.
