Biden Visits Apartheid Israel and “Bone Saw” Saudi Monarch

BY BARRY SHEPPARD Biden’s Mideast trip, aimed at boosting his historically low and still-declining approval ratings, now at 32 percent, ended with a whimper.

Regardless, whichever face they decide upon, Democrat or Republican, progressive or liberal or centrist, their fundamental policies will remain in place to the detriment of all humanity.
