If you for whatever reason believed Joe Biden held any moral or ethical standards which guide his presidency and inform his decisions, well, you’re dead wrong.
Biden is a ruthless globalist hellbent on transforming the U.S. economy into a corporate green monstrosity while destroying America’s ability to produce its own energy, thus explaining the real reason for Biden’s trip to Saudi Arabia.
He needs oil — and he needs it bad.
President Joe Biden defended his decision to travel to the Middle East next week, touting that it is vital to U.S. security.
Joe Biden says he hasn't decided whether to visit Saudi Arabia, who he previously called "a pariah," to beg for more oil.

While acknowledging that his views on “human rights are clear” and will be on his mind as he travels abroad, Biden wrote an op-ed in the Washington Post, published Saturday, that said the Middle East benefits the United States, as it is “essential to global trade and the supply chains.
“As president, it is my job to keep our country strong and secure. We have to counter Russia’s aggression, put ourselves in the best possible position to outcompete China, and work for greater stability in a consequential region of the world,” Biden wrote.
Biden argued the U.S. has to “engage directly” with countries such as Saudi Arabia, as he aims to strengthen a partnership with the country “based on mutual interests and responsibilities, while also holding true to fundamental American values.”
Biden conceded that he knows some disagree with his trip to the region, but he stressed that “fundamental freedoms are always on the agenda.”
“Throughout my journey, I’ll have in mind the millions of Americans who served in the region, including my son Beau, and the 7,054 who died in conflicts in the Middle East and Afghanistan since Sept. 11, 2001,” he wrote.
As one Twitter user pointed out, Biden decided to publish his op-ed in the Washington Post, the newspaper that employed Jamal Khashoggi.
Ironic that Biden published his article justifying his trip to Saudi Arabia in the Washington Post, the very newspaper Jamal Khashoggi worked for. https://t.co/EokBJR2xsY

Biden said he will be the first president to visit the Middle East since 9/11 without having U.S. troops engaged in conflict there. He is expected to make stops in Israel, the West Bank, and Saudi Arabia while in the region.
His decision to travel to Saudi Arabia has been controversial, as critics point to human rights violations in the country. The U.S. intelligence community deemed Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman responsible for the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi in 2018. Saudi Arabia rejected the assessment.
Biden himself had vowed to make Saudi Arabia a “pariah” in response to the assassination while on the campaign trail.

Make no mistake about it, Joe Biden is a ruthless killer just like the Saudi regime. The liberalism which guides his governance provides a convenient and benevolent mask for the utter ruthlessness that drives the Democrat Party.
