The Islamic State (ISIS) is back in force in the Middle East. The Biden administration does not seem interested in stopping ISIS, which President Donald Trump dismantled and contained during his tenure. With ISIS waging war on Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad, will the terrorist group again grow to form a powerful caliphate?
Trump’s Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said that Biden is taking foreign policy “back to when ISIS controlled a caliphate in Syria that was the size of Britain. I hope not. President Trump and our team took that down.” During the Obama administration, ISIS controlled considerable black-market wealth by operating oil wells and undercutting competitors on price per barrel — something the Obama administration was aware of because it was reported in the Western mainstream media including by The New York Times.
ISIS is back in force, claiming responsibility for two recent suicide bombings at the Baghdad marketplace in Iraq. ISIS is again asserting itself in Syria, where it killed 19 pro-Assad fighters in a surprise attack in Badia. The murder of two Syrian women prompted the Jerusalem Post headline “ISIS returns to target women in Syria.” Four ISIS suspects got arrested in Syria by the Syrian Democratic Forces, an anti-Assad predominately Kurdish opposition group that stated “The captured terrorists are responsible for supplying and transporting weapons and money.”
The Syrian Bashar al-Assad government is trying to get Biden to stop supporting the opposition Syrian Democratic Forces, which share ISIS’ goal of toppling Assad, but indications seem to be that Biden is moving in the opposite direction of peace. Certainly, ISIS’ unimpeded comeback in Syria is not boding well for Biden-Assad relations.
As the American intelligence class compares patriotic Donald Trump supporters in the United States to “al Qaeda,” calls them “the enemy within,” and calls for “counterinsurgency” tactics against them, people are beginning to wonder why our Deep State’s objectives appear to be so contradictory to the cause of securing the American homeland. The Biden regime is transparent in its neoliberal regime-change objectives in Syria, Russia, and possibly Iran and Myanmar and elsewhere. As we learned during the Obama administration, when ISIS grew out of U.S.-backed al Qaeda groups, jihadist radicals effectively fight for the same regime change objectives as the Western globalists. Another marriage of convenience, or perhaps more explicit romance, could develop under Biden while the mainstream media runs cover for the administration. After all, Biden’s current National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan previously told Hillary Clinton in an email released by Wikileaks that “AQ (al Qaeda) is on our side in Syria.”
Joe Biden continues to blunder America into various possible conflicts around the globe, with his administration taking a belligerent and incoherent stance on foreign policy that is already undoing the hard-won peacemaking of President Donald Trump’s tenure. Biden is coming off as a neoliberal gangster puppet propping up a crooked syndicate of Wall Street donors and military-industrial complex radicals. Other countries are taking advantage of his weakness.
America is now facing heightened tensions with Russia, Iran, China, Myanmar, and Syria, the resurgence of the jihadist Islamic State (aka ISIS) and vulnerability with our electric grid due to a bizarre provision in a Biden executive order presumably focused on “climate change.”
Stopping Myanmar’s military coup is now a Biden priority for some reason, with the befuddled Democrat White House telling that country’s military to un-do its coup or face some kind of “action.” Biden put his name on a statement that reads in part, “The United States removed sanctions on Burma over the past decade based on progress toward democracy. The reversal of that progress will necessitate an immediate review of our sanction laws and authorities, followed by appropriate action.” As if that was not enough, White House press secretary Jen Psaki clarified that Biden’s threat was also aimed at other countries in the region. Ah, thanks for clarifying!
Biden was recently caught on a hot mic saying “I don’t know what I’m signing” before he signed an executive order. This is not exactly reassuring, considering the implications of some of Biden’s executive orders, like the kind he is rolling out to weaken U.S. border security at just the moment when numerous other countries are very angry with us. Look no further than the threat his governance poses to our electric grid during a period in which Russia and China are scrambling to up their game in so-called electromagnetic pulse warfare. Yes, that’s right. Our electric grid.
Quin Hillyer writes for the Washington Examiner: “Biden, who long has been accused by critics of being soft on China, issued a lengthy executive order in which, buried amid matters purportedly designed to combat climate change, was an anomalous and potentially dangerous provision. The provision in question addresses nothing reasonably connected to climate change. Instead, it suspends for 90 days a key security measure put in place last May 1 by former President Donald Trump. Biden’s suspension of Trump’s measure makes not the slightest sense. Trump’s Executive Order 13920 declared a national emergency with respect to the nation’s electric grid and prohibited the acquisition or installation of “any bulk-power electric equipment … designed, developed, manufactured, or supplied, by persons owned by, controlled by, or subject to the jurisdiction or direction of a foreign adversary.” In sum, Trump forbade the use of grid equipment that is made in China, Russia, or other hostile nations.” (Examiner passage ends)
This is highly concerning stuff.
Then there is the issue of Iran. The Biden administration recently sent a B-52 bomber in a flight above the Persian Gulf to intimidate Iran, and then publicly discussed the idea that Iran could be rapidly progressing toward obtaining the ingredients for a nuclear weapon. Are the Biden-ites predictive-programming the public for potential conflict with the Ayatollah — the kind of conflict that would certainly spark a massive anti-U.S. insurgency in the Islamic country?

This latest blundering comes on the heels of record blundering to kick off the Biden regime. As I wrote days ago for NATIONAL FILE:
The Joe Biden administration is blundering America into a World War 3 scenario as tensions rise globally. We are looking at a WW3 in which the regime controlling America does not represent the American people, there is zero national cohesion, and there are no clear objectives except the profit-oriented destabilization goals and petty rivalries of the Oligarchs. Such a war is not winnable for the American government, and could spark a massive bipartisan antiwar movement to challenge the bellicose decisions of the Biden regime.
Biden is backing the anti-Vladimir Putin opposition effort in Russia while moving American troops into Syria. Putin is likewise moving Russian troops into Syria to engage in a staredown with the Americans. The Islamic State (ISIS) is back, committing terrorism in Iraq. China is flexing on Taiwan in the South China Sea, sparking U.S. warship entry into the region. Israel is bombing Syria. And Americans are beginning to realize that the globalist Biden regime is leading us blindly, cravenly into potential disaster.
Bombings in Baghdad
Dozens of civilians were killed or injured at Tayaran Square in Baghdad, Iraq on Thursday after a pair of suicide bombings. “One (terrorist) came, fell to the ground and started complaining ‘my stomach is hurting’ and he pressed the detonator in his hand. It exploded immediately. People were torn to pieces,” reported an observer. Reuters and other news agencies reported that the Islamic State, aka ISIS, took responsibility for the deadly terrorist attack.
ISIS was in retreat during President Donald Trump’s administration as Trump worked in coordination with Putin to bomb and dismantle the ISIS Caliphate in Syria. Trump scored one of his great victories when he took out ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi using the heroic war dog “Conan.” But now, predictably, ISIS returns. ISIS grew out of al Qaeda during the Obama-Biden administration as the Democrats supported al Qaeda in the region, believing the jihadist radicals could be used to topple sovereign potentates including Syria’s Bashar al Assad, a secular pan-Arab leader whose dictatorship threatens Western neoliberal designs on Syrian oil. Wikileaks released an email in which Jake Sullivan, then a Hillary Clinton henchman and now Biden’s National Security Advisor, said in no uncertain terms that al Qaeda “is on our side in Syria.” During Obama’s reign, ISIS took control of Syrian oil wells and funded its terrorist activities through black-market oil sales. The US neoliberal regime is determined to build new pipelines through Syria that can move gas into Europe, which would cut Putin out of his role as the chief supplier of the European Union’s energy. Putin is allied with Assad to prevent this from happening. Biden clearly wants to topple Assad — which was a piece of unfinished business from the Obama years — and that is creating a powder keg in the region that is likely to get much worse.
Staredown in Syria
Shortly after taking office, Biden moved a U.S. military convoy from Iraq into oil-filled northeastern Syria accompanied by helicopters and U.S. troops, according to Syrian media. Not to be outdone, Putin sent Russian troops into northeastern Syria to begin a tense staredown that could determine whether or not the U.S. and Russia actually engage in combat at some point in the near future.

Israel, meanwhile, is continuing to bomb Syria, determined to weaken the Assad regime.
Syrian state media SANA reported on a Syrian military source’s statement: “At about four o’clock [02:00 GMT] in the morning today, the Israeli enemy launched an aerial aggression with a barrage of missiles coming from the direction of the Lebanese city of Tripoli, aiming at some targets in the vicinity of Hama governorate. Our air defences confronted the enemy’s missiles and downed most of them…the Israeli aggression resulted in the martyrdom of a family, including a father, mother and two children.”
Even more troubling, the US-Russia conflict is not merely confined to Syria. The Biden administration is now openly backing an effort to challenge the power of Vladimir Putin on Russian soil. The Western mainstream media is going over the top celebrating the supposed virtue of Alexei Navalny, the anti-Putin opposition leader recently arrested in Moscow. Pro-Navalny protests raged outside the Russian embassy in Tel Aviv, Israel, as well as in Russia where about 3,000 protesters got arrested. Leaders on the House Foreign Affairs Committee from both the GOP and the Democrat Party want Biden to investigate Navalny’s supposed poisoning at the hands of Putin. Brazenly, the Biden State Department supported the anti-Putin protests and demanded Navalny’s release from incarceration. Putin’s spokesman said U.S. embassy support for the protests “indirectly constitute absolute interference in our internal affairs.”

South China Sea
Meanwhile, China is not happy that the Biden regime sent the USS Theodore Roosevelt and three warships into the South China Sea. Taiwan said that China moved into its airspace with fighter jets.
“The United States frequently sends aircraft and vessels into the South China Sea to flex its muscles. This is not conducive to peace and stability in the region,” stated a spokesman for the Chicoms.
Everyone in politics knows that Biden is easily manipulated by the Chinese Communists, who quietly set up a military base in the Bahamas less than 200 miles off the U.S. coast. Look for more erratic and concerning moves from the Biden administration with respect to China as the world situation grows more alarming by the day.
