Is Biden foreign to the truth?

Joe Biden announcesAt least one observer says Joe Biden's foreign policy agenda seems to merely be the opposite-of-Trump plan.

In his speech last Thursday, Biden missed few opportunities to throw punches at the man he hopes to face next year in the run for the White House.

"Make no mistake about it -- the world sees Trump for what he is: Insincere, ill-informed, and impulsive and sometimes corrupt, dangerously incompetent, and incapable, in my view, of world leadership," he said.

Author and Pentagon advisor Bob Maginnis says the presidential hopeful resorted to lies and half-truths to attack Trump from the very beginning.

"I knew when I saw Donald Trump respond to the events in Charlottesville, assigning a moral equivalence between those who promoted hate and those who opposed it, that the threat to our democracy was unlike anytime at least in my lifetime," Biden stated.

But as Maginnis points out, Trump's comments in question referred to the battle over Civil War monuments in general, not the white supremacists in Charlottesville.

"They were misconstrued," the author comments. "He certainly did not justify the radical right and certainly did not excuse the radical left."

"We believe in freedom of religion," Biden continued. "That's why I will end the Muslim ban."

But Maginnis asserts, "It's not a Muslim ban. It's a ban against radicals and people that seek to come into this country illegally."

Biden ended his speech by stating, "I respect no borders and cannot be contained by any walls."

Tlaib balks when asked if Israel has right to exist

Tlaib, Rep. Tashida (D-Michigan)When pointedly asked if Israel has the right to exist, Muslim pro-Palestinian Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) balked and dodged the question, saying Israel “exists” to the “detriment” of Palestinians, but then conceded when asked again, insisting at the same time that Palestinians also have a right to human rights – somewhat disqualifying her answer.
