While Pence uses Munich conference to put world leaders in their place, Joe Biden tells them America is an ’embarrassment’

Whereas Vice President Mike Pence used his time at the podium during the Munich Security Conference late last week to put the world’s arrogant leaders in check, former Vice President Joe Biden instead used his limited time to describe the United States as “an embarrassment.”

“The America I see values basic human decency, not snatching children from their parents or turning our back on refugees at our border. Americans know that’s not right,” he said, taking aim at President Donald Trump’s tough but fair and precedented immigration policies.

“The American people understand plainly that this makes us an embarrassment. The American people know, overwhelmingly, that it is not right. That it is not who we are,” he added.

Listen:

Biden’s entire address was tinged with this anti-Trump, anti-American venom.

The so-called “embarrassment” of being tough on illegal immigration has, in reality, prevented the U.S. from falling into the trap faced by Europe, where the quality of life has dropped while crime has skyrocketed because of an incessant stream of unassimilating migrants.

Yet even in the face of this crisis, Europe’s arrogant leaders continue to dismiss their own citizens and push for more migration and thus more crimes and dilemmas. Not that they or Biden care.

Speaking of the former VP, he continued his speech by criticizing Trump for being tough on those of America’s allies within the North Atlantic Treaty Organization who refuse to pay their fair share.

“You’re never allowed to disagree with your brothers and sisters in public,” he said. “Today, because of, I think, a lack of leadership coming from the other side of the Atlantic, we find ourselves in a different place and it’s uncomfortable.”

Except America’s allies aren’t its brothers and sisters. They’re sovereign nations whom the president has repeatedly noted have been taking advantage of America’s kindness by contributing nearly nothing toward their shared defense:

Thanks to the president’s tough approach, more nations are beginning to pay their fair share.

“At President Trump’s urging, in the past two years, the number of NATO members spending at least 2 percent of their GDP on defense has doubled, and the majority of NATO members now have plans in place to meet their financial obligations by 2024,” Pence said during his speech in Munich.

True. Last month NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg announced that the alliance’s members had agreed to invest an additional $100 billion in defense spending over the next two years.

“President Trump has been very clear. He is committed to NATO … but at the same time he has clearly stated that NATO allies need to invest more,” Stoltenberg said at the time on Fox News.

“We agreed to do more to step up, and now we see the results. By the end of next year, NATO allies will add $100 billion extra toward defense. So we see some real money and some real results. And we see that the clear message from President Donald Trump is having an impact.”

But whereas a “leader” like former President Barack Hussein Obama would have accepted this $100 billion, both Trump and Pence continue to demand more.

“The truth is, many of our NATO Allies still need to do more. And the United States expects every NATO member to put in place a credible plan to meet the 2 percent threshold. And, by 2024, we expect all our allies to invest 20 percent of defense spending on procurement,” Pence said.

“We’ve also made it clear that we will not stand idly by while NATO Allies purchase weapons from our adversaries. We cannot ensure the defense of the West if our allies grow dependent on the East,” he continued, taking issue with NATO members who purchase weapons from China.

Listen:

HERE’S WHAT YOU’RE MISSING …

Now just contrast Biden’s speech with that of Pence. It’s like night and day. While one was just a veritable continuation of Obama’s apology tour, the other — that of the current vice president — resonated with the strength, power and authority that has defined the United States for centuries.

For those who truly love America, it’s a damn good thing that neither Biden nor Obama are in power any longer. However, reports suggest the former VP may soon attempt to reacquire power.

According to social media, he’d better off running for VP somewhere else:
