Watching Vice President Kamala Harris’ latest embarrassing moment in the spotlight, I was dumbfounded by the sheer lack of awareness. I’m talking about her press conference in Poland on March 10 alongside Poland President Andrzej Duda. When she was asked about whether the U.S. would accept a greater number of Ukrainian refugees, she broke out into an inexcusable burst of childish laughter. Here she is, an incredibly unpopular vice-president as I’ve discussed before, representing America during a time of incredible pain and suffering for the Ukrainian people, and instead of offering support, Harris simply laughed.

Is it any wonder that the rest of the international community, when it sees who is leading the U.S. right now, just laughs at us? How can world leaders take President Biden seriously when his own Vice President can’t be bothered to not crack jokes while discussing the most important global conflict happening right now? You know who’s really laughing at us?

China.

I would not be at all surprised to see the Chinese become the ultimate arbiters of the Ukrainian-Russian war, and the people who ultimately end the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Because while people understand that the Chinese are a dictatorship and that the Chinese Communist Party dominates and owns the country, nonetheless they see them as stable and as serious people. And by contrast, they increasingly see the Biden Administration and Vice President Harris as totally lacking in reliability and as people that you wouldn’t want to depend on or risk.

So while Harris and Biden continue to kowtow to the progressives who have hijacked the Democratic Party, Ukraine remains at the mercy of Putin and his Russian army. And China is just sitting back and biding its time, waiting for its moment to manipulate the situation–and perhaps Biden himself–to its advantage.

Incompetence is running rampant in the White House, and mark my words, it is hurting America each day, diminishing our standing as a global leader.

It’s very hard for me to express how weird and I think how destructive Vice-President Kamala Harris was in Poland. 

When she’s asked a question about Ukrainian refugees and she breaks up laughing and turns to the president of Poland and says, “Well, you know, a friend in need is a friend, indeed.”

 I know from sources who have been ambassadors throughout Europe that the impact on a sense that the United States is not a serious country, the degree to which the Europeans watch this kind of performance and just have a sense of, “how can they possibly rely on us?” And what it’s doing is it’s creating an opening for China. 

I would not be at all surprised to see the Chinese become the ultimate arbiters of the Ukrainian Russian war, and the people who ultimately end the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Because, while people understand that the Chinese are a dictatorship and that the Chinese Communist Party dominates and owns the country, nonetheless they see them as stable and as serious people. And by contrast, they increasingly see the Biden administration and Vice-President Harris as totally lacking in reliability and as people that you wouldn’t want to depend on or risk… believe that their guarantee meant anything because they just seem so flighty and so shallow and so lacking in seriousness. 

I think this is… much more than politics. This is a real problem for the United States and the world and has historic, not just political consequences.
