Biden Shapes Policy on Israel, North Korea
The Scoop: Biden was unusually quiet last week, especially considering the fact that thousands of rockets were exchanged between Israel and Hamas.
However, instead of siding with the radical Left, Biden made it clear that he stands with Israel—much to the displeasure of the Squad.
The president also hosted only the second foreign visitor to the White House since he took office in January: South Korean President Moon Jae-In.
The two discussed the US approach to denuclearizing North Korea while also reaffirming the long-standing alliance between US and South Korea.
VIDEO: Biden Calls Navy Class “Dull” For Not Applauding His Joke
In one of the more cringe-worthy moments last week, Biden insulted a US Navy class he was giving a speech to after he told them a joke that barely mustered a chuckle from them.
Did it ever occur to Biden that maybe soldiers just don’t like him?
If civilians like myself can’t stand Biden’s gun-grabbing policies, globalist agenda, and unconstitutional power grabs, I can only imagine the disdain military service members may have for him.

“You are a — you are a really dull class. I mean, come on, man! Is the sun getting to you?! I would think you would have an opportunity when I say that about the Navy to clap.” pic.twitter.com/r9K0F32Vrn

Executive Action Alert!
Biden issued just a handful of presidential actions last week, including a memo on expanding access to legal representation and an order relating to climate change.
- The “Memorandum on Restoring the Department of Justice’s Access-to-Justice Function and Reinvigorating the White House Legal Aid Interagency Roundtable” directs the Attorney General to submit a plan within 120 days that expands Americans’ access to legal representation and courts. The action intends “to prioritize civil legal aid and expand access to federal programs.”
- Biden’s “Executive Order on Climate-Related Financial Risk” directs federal agencies to create a plan financing efforts advancing “net-zero greenhouse gas emissions for the U.S. economy by no later than 2050.”

Biden Meets with Moon
During Biden’s meeting with the South Korean president on Friday, Biden shaped his policy toward North Korea stating his administration will “engage diplomatically” with the country.
He indicated he will not attempt to negotiate with the country, like Trump would have, or trying strategic patience, like Obama’s approach. Biden will attempt a “practical” approach to build the relationship between the US, South Korea, and North Korea. He added both he and Moon are “deeply concerned” about North Korea’s nuclear abilities, which he pointed out several previous administrations haven’t been successful in the “incredibly difficult objective” to stop them.
Biden moved to reaffirm the alliance between the US and South Korea and promised to provide them more than half a million COVID vaccine doses. Moon then gave remarks concurring with Biden’s statements, also affirming their relationship.
Biden Distances Himself From Radical Left on Israel
Following remarks with the South Korean president, Biden took questions from the press. One reporter asked what does the Biden administration think about the Democrat party’s increasing shift away from America’s long-held pro-Israel stance amid many lawmakers pledge of support to Palestine.
Biden answered with, “There is no shift in my commitment to the security of Israel. Period. No shift, not at all. But I’ll tell you what there is a shift in: we need a two state solution. It is the only answer.”
VIDEO: Trump Gets Standing Ovation at Army-Navy Game
In contrast, watch as former President Trump gets a massive standing ovation from troops attending the Army-Navy game.
“Together, we will make America and Israel safe again,” Trump said.

Next week, we can expect more from the Biden Administration on vaccines, the Middle East, and the border crisis. Biden’s next actions will be crucial for defining the trajectory of his four years in office.
Will he continue pandering to progressive groups that voted for him? Or will he return to the establishment ways of doing virtually nothing while in office?
