Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

Joe Biden has put the United States back as leader of the free world in a fantastic move that has helped the West to unite, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Friday. "As you've seen and heard earlier, America is unreservedly back as the leader of the free world and that is a fantastic thing," Johnson told the Munich Security Conference ...

... Trump did drastic harm to our international reputation. It's precisely why the British prime minister was not merely relieved to see and hear Biden today, it's also why Boris Johnson was celebrating what he sees as the return of the United States as "the leader of the free world."

Implicit in the comments was that, in the very recent past, it was a title the United States had lost.

If anyone sees a small black mushroom cloud over Mang-o-Lamo today, now you know why.

Did Boris check with Xi or Putin before making this announcement?

We'll see. If america admits it has a problem with a fascist insurrectionists and deals with them and the propaganda sources that are radicalizing them, it'll be back. If america's leaders instead want to "heal" and "look forward not back" then we're dead meat.

I think President Biden is leaving that to the A.G.s he picks for our Federal agencies. It seems they're already racking up an impressive arrest record without any "thumb on the scale."

If there's any "looking back" it's the Justice Department hot on the trail of the perps. Biden seems to letting them do their job while he handles the "moving forward" business re the economy and the pandemic.

The GOP could be more helpful but I don't think it's in their DNA. They're too busy scheming how to cheat their way to an epic comeback in 2024.

Only Congress can deal with the problem of propaganda channels and I hope they do. We have a real problem with them but half of our Congress loves the propaganda because it keeps them in office. Americans need to finally recognize the threat that fake news presents and how evil the owners of the fake news channels are. We would do all of them a big favor by destroying their networks because if we don't do it now, we will do it later, when they have so destroyed our politics that they end up like Mussolini. At some point there will be a reckoning and those who advocate for them will be called to "justice?" Justice, at that point will be quite painful for them. As it should be.

I think you are right Twin but I hope that, at least a few of the Republicans in Congress realize that they are on a path to death. Apparently, they think they can take advantage of ignorance and stupidity among their supporters, when they know better, without consequences. I'm predicting Mussolini consequences, I just can't predict exactly when it will happen. Neither could Mussolini.

That the United States had lost that title under fmr Pres Trump should be of no surprise to the Trump supporters.

To me, it looked as if they wanted the United States to back off the world stage and become an isolated "America First" country.

BoJoke has to lick Biden's loafers twice as much as your usual PM licks an American President's boots because he was openly racist about Biden's BFF Obama and was on a first name basis with tRump's colon.
He switched from tRump to Biden quicker than Graham switched from McCain to tRump. Both are weak men and need to hover around alpha males.

"He [Boris Johnson] switched from tRump to Biden "

A better case in point is look how conciliatory Vladimir Putin has been to President Biden. There's no advantage to anybody to do otherwise when America is the most powerful nation in the world ~ even moreso now that sanity has returned to the powers- that-be in Washington D.C.

After suffering through four years of Trump's total lunacy, it may take a while for normalcy take seed again.
