Joe Biden has proven to be a feckless and incomplete “leader” on the world’s stage.

Now innocent people must deal with the consequences of his failures.

And Joe Biden’s refusal to take one bureaucratic action against Iran is setting the stage for global chaos.

Oil is Iran’s most powerful economic and political tool.

Former President Donald Trump came close to bankrupting Iran and shutting down its nuclear program with his maximum pressure campaign that severely curtailed sales of Iranian oil.

President Joe Biden’s woke appeasement strategy has flipped the tables, and now, the Iranian mullahs are swimming in oil money once again.

And America’s enemies are reaping the benefits.

Iran is the biggest state sponsor of terrorism on Earth, yet President Biden panders to them at every turn. 

Biden begged the Iranian regime to reinstate former President Barack Obama’s disastrous nuclear deal that Trump scuttled because, as he said, “The Iran deal was a giant fiction: that a murderous regime desired only a peaceful nuclear energy program.”

Then, there’s the $6 billion Biden greenlit to reward the state sponsor of terrorism for taking hostages.

But President Biden’s flat-out refusal to enforce sanctions on Iranian oil exports will have the most far-reaching and devastating consequences for American and international security.

Terrorism backers awash in cash and attacks escalate

Illicit Iranian oil sales have skyrocketed to $90 billion under the Biden regime.

This massive prize allows Tehran to fund terror proxies who have unleashed an unprecedented wave of aggression against Israel, American forces, and western shipping vessels.

Iranian-backed Houthi rebels in Yemen fired on American bases, killing and injuring American soldiers.

They also partnered with Iraq-based militant groups to choke off international shipping and attack Western ships in the Red Sea and Gulf of Aden.

Western shipping crippled while Iran flourishes

Dozens of attacks have been reported since November 19, 2023, and they threaten a key maritime route responsible for a significant share of global container traffic, and the transport of over $1 trillion a year in merchandise.

While Western ships struggle to move goods through waterways within the Middle East, Iran’s oil trade has continued unabated.

Exports to Russia, Venezuela, Syria, and America’s top global adversary, Communist China soar.

Tehran’s sales to Communist China have consistently exceeded more than 1 million barrels per day over the past several months.

The revenue from these sales is Iran’s central financial lifeline.

Security and peace wane as Biden cowers

The billions of dollars Iran receives has sent its global terrorism enterprise into overdrive, allowing Tehran to deploy its terrorist proxies to attack Israel and destabilize the Middle East.

Moreover, President Biden’s refusal to enforce existing sanctions against the Iranian oil industry both strengthens the economies of America’s adversaries and pushes them to ally with each other and Iran.

There’s no doubt Biden’s desire to appease hostile nations – not to mention his cowardice in the face of aggression – has put U.S. and international security in jeopardy.

But it’s not too late to change course.

Solution found in embracing America First priorities

At the very least Biden could enforce existing sanctions.

But in the face of escalating Iranian aggression more severe sanctions are in order.

Of course, to significantly weaken Iran, along with Communist China, and Russia, Biden should ramp up U.S. oil production in order to make America energy independent again, rather than relying on 

Putting the U.S. in the driver’s seat when it comes to energy production empowers America, helps our allies and hurts our enemies, so America Last Joe Biden will never do it.
