    Wednesday morning, President Joe Biden announced a fresh $100 million dollars for "humanitarian aid" in Gaza, as well as Judea and Samaria. Of course, critics were quick to point out that there is a strong likelihood that that funding will wind up in the hands of the very Islamic extremists at war with Israel.

    Among those who took ire with Biden's decision was former President Donald Trump. From a lower Manhattan courthouse, where the GOP frontrunner is facing a civil fraud legal battle, Trump blasted the current commander-in-chief.

    "I think right now it's totally inappropriate. It's so inappropriate - to be doing that right now? He's over in Israel, and he's giving money to the Palestinians," Trump said in disbelief.

    "I think it's pretty inappropriate," he added again for good measure.

    Earlier in the day on Twitter, Biden seemed aware that Hamas would attempt to steal some of this money.

    "This money will support over 1 million displaced and conflict-affected Palestinians," Biden tweeted. "And we will have mechanisms in place so this aid reaches those in need - not Hamas or terrorist groups."

    In reaction to that tweet, Florida Governor and GOP presidential candidate Ron DeSantis was as stunned as Trump by the move.

    "Aid to the Gaza Strip is what Biden is prioritizing today?" DeSantis said. "This aid will of course be commandeered by Hamas. No taxpayer dollars should be sent to Gaza. Stop funding jihad!"

    Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR), a veteran who served in Iraq and Afghanistan, added, "Under present circumstances, 'humanitarian assistance' = resupply for Hamas terrorists. President Biden continues to embolden Iran and its terror proxies."

    Senator Rick Scott (R-FL) vowed to propose legislation to stop Biden's funding.

    "Not a single dollar of U.S. aid should go to Hamas-controlled Gaza until all hostages, including AMERICANS, are safely released. I'll be on the Senate floor later to pass my Stop Taxpayer Funding of Hamas Act to guarantee that. Surely no Democrat could disagree with this..."

    As president, Trump ended all aid to Gaza and Judea and Samaria as part of his strong anti-terror foreign policy. The Biden administration restored that aid in April 2021. Just weeks later, Hamas launched 4,000 rockets at Israel.

    At the time, Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) presciently said, "The longer Joe Biden shows weakness to Hamas or Hezbollah or Iran, the more you're going to see terrorist attacks escalating."

    Indeed, the most recent Hamas terrorist attack came after the Biden administration announced it would be unfreezing $6 billion in Iranian money.

    For his part, Trump also slammed the tragedy in Israel as the latest evidence of "the deadly consequences" of Biden's "three years of breathtaking weakness and appeasement," in an opinion column for Newsweek.

In the minds of many, since January 20, 2021, the World has become far less safe in every theater of conflict, beginning with the attack of Israel by Iran /Hamas, so the question becomes: What caused this Worldwide calamity of extreme geopolitical dysfunction, and what will correct it?
  Joe Biden is the cause of this frightening Worldwide situation, and it will end when a Republican is elected president.
  This delayed Worldwide dysfunction and constant conflict is all Donald Trump's fault, as it is with everything that occurs going forward, and long before the man ever became the 45th president..
  Joe Biden is the "root cause" of this frightening Worldwide situation, and it will end when former President Donald John Trump is elected president.
  In the imitable words of Alfred E. Newman: "What, me worry?"

26 days after the October 7th Terror attacks on Israel, where over 1400 Jewish men, women and children were gruesomely murdered, and hundreds more made hostage: Should the Biden /Harris administration finally state that the administration's primary Middle East negotiating partner, Iran, is behind the funding and strategy of the aggressors, the Hamas Terrorists, or continue to take the more moderate position of "Don't," which is clearly not working?
  Yes, name Iran as the funding /strategy culprit, and begin to enforce the President Trump era sanctions to END Iran's ability to prosecute this war against Israel and the United States.
  No, Iran is a valuable partner in the motives of the Biden / Harris administration, and must not be named as the culprit and our enemy.
  I have larger concerns just to survive in this economy.
