President Joe Biden is set to deliver his first State of the Union in a few days, on Feb. 23 — though that date has yet to be confirmed, The Associated Press reported. But if he does deliver, if all goes according to plan, it’s a speech that could be summed in a simple phrase: Hello, United Nations.

Goodbye, America First.

The nation, under Biden, is rapidly swerving toward globalism. Globalism and diplomacy at all costs on foreign affairs.

“Pompeo, other critics pan Biden WH effort to restart Iran nuclear talks,” Fox News wrote in a recent headline.

“The Ayatollah understands only strength. I led a response to the Iranian threat that protected the American people from its terror and supported the Jewish state of Israel,” Pompeo said, in an interview with the Washington Free Beacon. “Adopting the European Union model of accommodation … will guarantee Iran a path to a nuclear arsenal.”



But that seems the plan of action for this administration.

All globalism, all the time; all diplomacy, all the time. 

It’s not just the Iran treaty that’s back on the table. America, thanks to Biden, has rejoined the Paris climate agreement, pretty much setting the stage for taxpayers to see huge surges in energy costs in coming years. He’s also promised to restore much of the funding for U.N. agencies that Donald Trump’s White House pulled. And he’s reached out to the World Health Organization to soothe ruffled feathers and assure U.S. cooperation once again with all that behemoth has to say about the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

“As I said in my inaugural address,” Biden said, in a recent speech about “America’s place in the world” delivered at U.S. State Department headquarters, “we will repair our alliances and engage with the world once again, not to meet yesterday’s challenges, but today’s and tomorrow’s. … [W]e must start with diplomacy rooted in America’s most cherished democratic values.”

Diplomacy to Democrats?

Never-ending talk. Always concessionary actions.

“We can’t do it alone,” Biden said.

“We will work with our partners,” Biden said.

“[I am] reforming the habits of cooperation,” Biden said.

What a day for the globalists; what a time of cheer for the big government types.

“The transatlantic alliance is back,” said one Biden official, speaking on condition of anonymity to ABC News, about Biden’s Friday speech to the Group of Seven. That’s a thinly veiled reference to the times of Barack Obama versus the times of Donald Trump.

The apology tours can’t be far behind.
