Gotta love Fox News’s Peter Doocy for never backing down from Democrat nonsense.
Including the latest waffling from the alleged commander in chief, “President” Biden, who apparently can’t bring himself to take a firm position on the present war in Israel.
“I think we need a pause,” Biden drawled in response to questions regarding a ceasefire.
Of course, America-hating, hard-left “Squad” members are calling for a full-blown ceasefire, and they have demonstrated little to zero compassion for the Israelis massacred in Hamas’s despicable attack.
Biden, apparently afraid to stand up to the uneducated “Squad,” has apparently decided that “a pause” is one way of placating the virulent “Squad” without being too obvious.
Hint: Calling for “a pause” is rather obvious.
After all, did the United States “pause” in its pursuit of the Taliban terrorists that engineered 9/11?
Needless to say, Biden’s rather ambiguous call for “a pause” left John Kirby scrambling in front of the press.
Kirby, who serves as coordinator for strategic communications at the National Security Council, effectively lost his composure amid questions from Doocy, who wanted to know exactly what Israelis were and were not permitted to do amid “a pause.”
“As you push the Israelis for humanitarian pauses, are they just supposed to sit back and let Hamas attack them and attack them and attack them and not fight back?” Doocy inquired.
Kirby gave a rather roundabout answer, insisting that the White House has been “crystal clear” about its belief “that Israel has the right to defend themselves.”
“So a pause means they can still shoot back?” Doocy pressed, not letting Kirby get away with nonsense.
“My goodness, Peter … We’re giving them security assistance almost every day,” Kirby exclaimed, “but do we advocate pauses by both sides here – temporary, localized – to be able to get Americans out, to be able to get aid in? You betcha we do.”
Kirby also insisted that Biden does not wish for a “general ceasefire,” though he does advocate “temporary, localized” pauses.
One thing is for certain: Biden certainly is not in the mood to favor “localized” aid for Israel specifically, as demonstrated in a package pushed by House Republicans.
At a separate press conference, Kirby announced that Biden had no interest in a bill designed exclusively for Israel … Despite the fact that Israel, not Hamas, is an American ally.
“The president would veto an only-Israel bill. I think that we’ve made that clear,” Kirby boomed.
Hm. Interesting. As the president has zero issue with “Ukraine only” bills.
A separate statement from the White House further doubled down on Biden’s aversion to “Israel only” bills.
“As demonstrated by the President’s recent supplemental funding request, the Administration strongly supports providing resources for key national security priorities, including aid for our ally Israel as it defends itself against Hamas terrorists. But rather than putting forward a package that strengthens American national security in a bipartisan way, the bill fails to meet the urgency of the moment by deepening our divides and severely eroding historic bipartisan support for Israel’s security,” the White House proclaimed.
So, in other words, the “bipartisan way” is to lend a helping hand to Hamas, alongside Israel.
Makes total sense … for the current occupants of the White House.
