Since Joe Biden became president of the United States in January of 2021, the United States has been engulfed in a general climate of instability and turbulence at both the internal and external aspects of federal politics. Indeed, since Biden and the then Democratic controlled Congress passed several pieces of legislation which authorized trillions of dollars of new government spending inflation has crushed the working class. 60% of Americans are estimated to currently be living paycheck to paycheck, and the value of the dollar continues to decline. Millions of illegal migrants have entered the nation since the beginning of Biden’s term, further hurting the struggling middle class by saturating the job market and keeping wages low.
Internationally, there has been chaos. Biden began his term by bitching the American withdrawal from Afghanistan in the summer of 2021. During the operations surrounding this withdrawal, some 13 American service members were killed. The Taliban quickly took control of the beleaguered nations weak government. In eastern Europe, Russia invaded Ukraine in early 2022, returning armed conflict to the continent for the first time since the end of the second world war in 1945. In early October, the terrorist group Hamas invaded Israel and murdered over 1,000 innocent civilians, resulting in full scale war in the region.
In America, many protests have been held in cities and at college campuses in support of the Muslim terrorist group Hamas and the nation of Palestine (which openly sponsors them). Antisemitism is on the rise, and in Los Angeles a Jewish family was targeted after a deranged man broke into a home only clothed in some undergarments and shouted pro-Palestinian slogans. The family members subjected to the attack are Israeli in heritage. The perpetrator was confronted by the father in the family, and fortunately no violence occurred. The mayor of Los Angeles, Karen Bass, denounced the incident and claimed the city remains supportive of the Jewish nation.
