A lot of worst-case scenarios are being attributed to President Biden’s unfortunate debate performance but the one takeaway that goes beyond the debate, the Democratic Party and the November election is how our global enemies now see the US.

Couple that practical realization with what The Wall Street Journal is exclusively reporting this morning: Cuba is hosting an expansion of Chinese spy bases.
