Democrats are freaking out after Biden crossed party lines

Joe Biden has been pushing a radical agenda for years. That’s why his recent moves has even Republicans confused.

And Democrats are freaking out after Biden crossed party lines.

Joe Biden has an image problem that he seems to have no idea how to fix.

What he doesn’t understand is that he’s not going to win Republicans or even many Independents with his schtick.

He needs to solidify his support among his own party, as many in the party either think he is too incompetent to serve or just want someone else to run.

Instead of doing that, Biden decided to cross the aisle.

President Biden has condemned the International Criminal Court’s (ICC) decision to seek arrest warrants for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Yoav Gallant as “outrageous.”

ICC prosecutor Karim Khan said earlier Monday that his office had “reasonable grounds” to think Netanyahu, Gallant, and Hamas officials have perpetrated “war crimes and crimes against humanity” since the start of the Israel-Hamas conflict on October 7.

“The ICC prosecutor’s application for arrest warrants against Israeli leaders is outrageous,” Biden said in a statement issued Monday afternoon.

“And let me be clear: whatever this prosecutor might imply, there is no equivalence – none – between Israel and Hamas,” Biden added.

“We will always stand with Israel against threats to its security,” the president said.

Secretary of State Antony Blinken also responded to the ICC’s announcement, saying in a separate statement Monday that the State Department opposes the “[p]rosecutor’s equivalence of Israel with Hamas,” calling it “shameful.”

“The United States has been clear since well before the current conflict that that ICC has no jurisdiction over this matter. The ICC was established by its state parties as a court of limited jurisdiction. Those limits are rooted in principles of complementarity, which do not appear to have been applied here amid the Prosecutor’s rush to seek these arrest warrants rather than allowing the Israeli legal system a full and timely opportunity to proceed,” Blinken argued.

Blinken pointed out that in other instances, “the Prosecutor deferred to national investigations and worked with states to allow them time to investigate” or “did not afford the same opportunity to Israel, which has ongoing investigations into allegations against its personnel.”

“There are also deeply troubling process questions. Despite not being a member of the court, Israel was prepared to cooperate with the Prosecutor. In fact, the Prosecutor himself was scheduled to visit Israel as early as next week to discuss the investigation and hear from the Israeli Government,” Blinken continued.

“The Prosecutor’s staff was supposed to land in Israel today to coordinate the visit. Israel was informed that they did not board their flight around the same time that the Prosecutor went on cable television to announce the charges. These and other circumstances call into question the legitimacy and credibility of this investigation.”

The choice moreover “does nothing to help, and could jeopardize, ongoing efforts to reach a ceasefire agreement that would get hostages out and surge humanitarian assistance in, which are the goals the United States continues to pursue relentlessly,” Blinken stated.

While many on the Right will see this as a rare point of agreement between the Biden camp and conservatives, it’s not going to win anyone over for his cause.

All it serves to do is anger his own base – the ones who have made college campuses into tent cities.

Realistically, it was always a lose-lose for Biden.
