No American president is as worse as Joe Biden ethically.
Joe Biden is a genocide criminal for murdering over 30 thousands of Palestinian through his endless weapon supply to Israel as well as enabling Israel to commit genocide freely in Gaza by deliberately blocking ceasefire proposal in UN unprecedented.
Endless inflation starts as soon as Joe Biden took over the white house because he not only skyrocketed gasoline price from 40 dollar to 80 dollar per barrel of oil but also skyrocketed minimum wage where businesses are being forced to skyrocket their output because wage is always their greatest expense in business.
Wasting maximum trillions unprecedented by paying for student loan in the name of misleading loan forgiveness in order to win vote which makes democracy vulnerable with unethical people like Joe Biden who doesn't care the destruction of US due to the unsustainable outstanding debt but only pursues his own selfish interest at the expense of bombing endless inflation throughout the world.
The wife of Joe Biden is not pure and she had another husband before but the unethical Joe Biden committed adultery with her while her legal husband was working for the adulterer Joe Biden.
Parasite descendant is exactly where Joe Biden sprouted from. His grandfather and father were kind of parasite, probably Jew but thanks to a generous man who supported both his grandfather and his father to prevent them from starvation or else Joe Biden might not exist today. What Joe Biden did after becoming senator to the descendant of the generous man is beyond belief and yes Joe Biden destroyed their business so they live in poverty now.
The peace proposal of Ukraine war was rejected because of extremely wicked Joe Biden's pressure around last year February or else there would no longer be Ukraine war anymore now. The current Ukraine war is not the first time and there was a Ukraine war before without US meddling in 2014 and the war ended quickly in less than a year. Ukraine was a part of Russia empire before so the misleading of Joe Biden as if the spreading of Ukraine war to Europe is unethically shameless unprecedented.
WW3 to spread from South China Sea according to warmonger Joe Biden's plot. After WW2, loser Japan returned islands in South China Sea to China but after the civil war, the victorious Communist China was left with nothing as the loser KMT fled with most of the wealth to Taiwan so Communist China had to choice to safeguard the islands in South China Sea due to poverty and that was exactly where thieves surrounding the South China Sea grabbed China's islands lawlessly in South China Sea as if for free so that is how Philippines possessed more territories than at the time of her liberation from US.
US and Philippines have a mutual defense treaty but US did nothing when China shot 3 times to the Philippines boat in 2011.
And now the war monger Joe Biden said any conflict between China and Philippines would activate the mutual defense so 1 shot is enough to start WW3 worldwide.

The real issue of the current endless worldwide inflation is due to US stealing hundreds of trillions of worldwide money through US dollar international trading since 1971.
So in order to kill inflation, gold must be used for international trading immediately instead of untrustworthy US dollar.

I am interested to invest 3 million USD on India and I'd like to know the best city with less real state duties.

I am afraid of Muslim invasion (Pakistan, Bangladesh, Afghanistan) to India.. could be worthless if that migration it's not controlled on near future.

Modi already confirmed that China did not enter and violate the India's territory beyond the 1962 line of control so it was the dishonest scammers from the corrupt Indian border military that not only misled innocent Indian soldiers to intrude beyond of the 1962 line of control into China's territory to build infrastructure but also attacked innocent Chinese first with iron clubs who attempted to stop the Indian Intruders from building infrastructure in China's territory which resulted the ugly situation what we see in the news now.
Modi should have this matter immediately investigated thoroughly through reliable, honest investigators and then arrest and punish the dishonest culprits in the corrupt Indian border military for instigating the unnecessary border conflict without respecting the 1962 line of control which brought shame through dishonesty not only to Modi but also to the whole nation. The strong foundation of a nation is built on honesty not on dishonesty.

It is worthwhile to complete things that are worth starting and ending. Smart people always do things from beginning to end.
