America’s standing in the world is in a complete downward spiral under Joe Biden’s “leadership.”
Hostile foreign powers now seem to believe they can do whatever they want without facing any consequences.
And now the Iranian military just gave Joe Biden the middle finger in a brazen move that will turn you red with rage.
Degradation of the Presidency
When you look back at the powers and responsibilities the President of the United States had bestowed upon him by the nation’s founding fathers, most of those powers pertained to international affairs and related issues.
In essence, the President was supposed to be the United States’ ambassador to the world.
The same holds true today, as quirks such as the President’s demeanor and personality alone can influence world events.
When former President Donald Trump occupied the White House, America’s enemies decided it wasn’t a good idea to attack the United States as they weren’t always sure exactly how he may react, but recognized that he would gladly retaliate with 100-times the force if he deemed it necessary to protect the American people.
But the level of respect that was given to Trump has been completely lost under President Biden.
Now, foreign adversaries simply laugh at the U.S. as it’s painfully apparent that the President of the United States is physically and mentally depleted – not to mention seemingly on board with the idea of bringing America to its knees.
And because of President Biden’s feebleness, America has been paying the ultimate price.
Under Biden’s watch, the Taliban ruthlessly took over Afghanistan quickly after the President’s botched withdrawal of American forces from the region, which resulted in the death of thirteen American soldiers and scores of Afghan allies, who happily put their lives on the line to aid the U.S. in liberating the war-torn nation from terrorist control.

There’s also the first major war in Europe since World War II, which was sparked by Russian President Vladimir Putin’s decision to invade Ukraine after observing the historic weakness amongst American leadership for less than one year.
But the international embarrassments for the United States just keep coming.
And the latest one should anger every red-blooded American.
Iran laughs at America
The Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps Navy has seized not one but two oil tankers in the Strait of Hormuz over the past week.
And to make matters worse, both of these seizures occured in waters guarded by the United States Navy.
The first hijacking occurred when an oil tanker from the Marshall Islands called the “Advantage Sweet” was swarmed by small naval boats from the Iranian Navy in the Gulf of Oman.
Then, a Panamanian oil tanker called “Niovi” was seized by Iran on Wednesday.

If hijackings like this keep happening, the world’s oil supply could be quickly depleted as nearly 30% of the world’s oil and gas supply passes through the Strait of Hormuz.
Just imagine what this would do to already sky-high gas prices across the nation.
Have no fear, though, the U.S. State Department has asked Iran in the most polite terms possible to please release the oil tankers the state sponsor of terrorism hijacked.
But with Joe Biden in the White House, Iran could not care less about what the United States thinks.
Hopefully, Joe Biden and his regime haven’t caused irreparable harm to America’s standing in the world.
But the true extent of the damage caused by the Biden regime may not truly be known until a Republican can take back the White House.
