Biden's Doctrine Of "Don't" Was Miserable Failure

Friday, Iran launched an attack on Israel--A day after President Joe Biden warned Tehran not to do it.

When asked by reporters on Friday what message he wanted to send to Iran regarding an attack on Israel, President Biden leaned into the mic and said in a loud whisper, "Don't."

“We are devoted to the defense of Israel,” he added. “We will support Israel. We will defend — help defend Israel, and Iran will not succeed.”

A day after the president threatened Iran..."Don't " do it, Iran launched an attack directly on Israel.

Yesterday, CNN reported that Biden told Netanyahu the U.S. will not participate in a counter-strike against Iran.

Chaos and confusion on every front.

Be informed, not misled.

Biden was planning on spending the weekend in Rehoboth Beach but returned earlier in the day and was slated to meet with his national security team in the Situation Room.

There were reports that he would address the nation from the Oval Office, but the White House then called a lid [no access to the president] at 5:13 p.m. ET, according to the White House press pool.

By that time, Iran was firing missiles at Israel, and their drones were en route to do massive destruction to Israel.

Fortunately, 99% of the missiles and drones were shot down before they reached their target. The several that were not shot down caused minor damage.

By late Saturday evening CNN was reporting that Biden was telling Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu the United States would not participate in a counter-strike against Iran.

A double-minded man is unstable in all his ways.

Critics slammed Biden for weakness on Iran. Cliff Sims, a former senior Trump administration official, posted on X: “Biden reversed all the Trump policies that made Iran weaker and poorer. Now they’re spending all the money Biden gave them attacking Israel, terrorizing the world, and threatening to plunge us into WWIII.”

Remember the $6 billion in cash that Obama delivered to Iran in the middle of the night on a pallet, at random, for the six people Iran was holding?

Trump set up policies that kept U.S. taxpayer funds from going to Iran, essentially keeping them financially broke and unable to launch such attacks.

Now Biden has reversed Tump's policies and returned to Obama's policies regarding Iran.

The Times of Israel is reporting, "Sirens and explosions were heard nationwide in Israel early Sunday morning as Iran launched a wave of more than 300 drones and missiles at the country in its first-ever direct attack on the Jewish state.

While a list of sites Iran tried to hit has not been publicized by Tehran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps — which launched the drones and missiles — the main target of the attack appeared to be a sensitive airbase in southern Israel, Nevatim, home to the F-35 stealth fighter jet, the military’s most advanced aircraft.

Trump's response.

Former President Trump argued Iran’s attack on Israel would never have happened if he were in office.

Townhall published this:

“Before going any further I want to say God bless to the people of Israel—they’re under attack right now,” Trump said Saturday during a campaign rally in Pennsylvania. “That’s because we show great weakness. This would not happen, the weakness that we’ve shown, it’s unbelievable and it would not have happened if we were in office. You know that. They know that. Everybody knows that. But America prays for Israel. 

“We send our absolute support to everyone in harm’s way,” the former president continued.  “This is an attack that would not have happened and to think about what we have to go through and the things we’ve put up with, with the border, with no energy independence, with all electric cars…but we will return the world to peace through strength and it’ll happen very quickly. I will revive American strength abroad and we will restore American strength at home. We were respected four years ago all over the world. Today we are considered a joke. It’s not gonna be for long, believe me, it’s not going to be for long.”

Saturday, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani argued that the correct response to Iran’s attack on Israel would have been to hit Iran at the earliest stages of the strike as possible.

Giuliani argued that was what former President Ronald Reagan would have done if he were facing similar circumstances.

Evangelical pastor's response.

Many pastors were silent on this developing crisis in their pulpits yesterday, and a number of pastors expressed anti-Israel sentiments.

However, a strong group of pastors spoke out on this issue and its biblical importance.

The Christian Post said, "Prominent Christian leaders worldwide are urgently calling for prayers for peace and security in Israel after Iran initiated a significant aerial assault on Israel, deploying hundreds of drones and missiles early Sunday, intensifying existing regional tensions and pushing the Middle East closer to a broader conflict."

Pastor Greg Laurie of the Harvest Fellowship in California and Hawaii pointed to the biblical significance of the attacks.

"As American evangelicals, we want our Jewish friends to know that we stand behind the Jewish homeland and her people,” Laurie wrote on X. “This attack is on the heels of the horrific attack from Hamas, which is a proxy of Iran on Israel on October 7th.”

He added, “We pray that God almighty would protect Israel at this hour and we are to ‘Pray for the peace of Jerusalem.’ (Psalm 122:6) One of the signs of the end time is an increase in anti-Semitism and the increasing isolation of the state of Israel. we are certainly seeing that happen before our very eyes.”

Jack Hibbs, a senior pastor at Chino Hills, CA. Calvary Chapel also connected current events with biblical prophecies.

“This could be [the] hook that is set into the jaw of Gog … that would be Russia. ... And if Russia gets involved, then we could see Ezekiel 38 unfold. … A lot of great scholars believe that the Rapture could happen before the Ezekiel battle,” said Hibbs,  on X, urging his followers to spread the word and pray.


The Rev. Johnnie Moore, the president of the Congress of Christian Leaders, wrote that Christian congregations worldwide will be dedicating themselves to prayer for the peace and security of Israel. “There will be hundreds of millions of prayers prayed.”

Pastor Robert Jeffress of First Baptist Dallas recently shared how Christians can prepare for the End Times, its misconceptions, and the next event on the biblical prophetic timeline.

“We've been in the last days for 2,000 years, and I think you can make a case that we're in the last days of the last days before the rapture of the Church,” he said. “The most important thing is not trying to guess when Jesus is coming back again, but realize He is coming back again, and make sure we're prepared.”

"The interesting thing about the Rapture is there are no prophecies that have to be fulfilled for it to occur. It could happen before we finish reading this article ---which is, again, why we need to be ready,” he said.

Be Informed. Be Ready. Be Discerning. Be Vigilant. Occupy. Be Prayerful.
