I was talking with some family members over the weekend about the situation in Ukraine over why the Biden administration has been hyping a war with Russia. Here’s what we do know. Russian President Vladimir Putin has assembled over 100,000 troops along the Ukraine border. Russia has invaded Ukraine in the past under the Obama-Biden administration and they pretty much got away with it.
We also know that Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky has publicly asked President Joe Biden to stop hyping the situation because it’s not nearly as critical and the Biden administration and their boot-licking sycophants in the misinformation news media have made it out to be.
Our foreign policy should be focused on China and Asia overall, but instead, this pea-brained president is focusing on Eastern Europe, where we have no interests that outweigh what China is trying to do to our standing in the world.
So the big question we asked was why? Why is Joe Biden focusing on a potential Russian invasion of Ukraine and they couldn’t give two figs about a potential Chinese invasion of Taiwan?
Well, apparently Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi let the cat out of the bag on Sunday’s “ABC This Week” with George Stephanopoulos when she made an appearance to talk about current events. Just note that any time a Democrat politician goes on with Stephanopoulos, a former Clintonista political operative, you know that the entire appearance has been pre-planned.
Stephanopoulos first brought up the potential Russian invasion of Ukraine story (a crisis if you ask Democrats) where he asked Pelosi if she believes Putin is about to invade Ukraine.
Pelosi responded, saying, “Well, I think we have to be prepared for it. And that is what the president is … yes, I do believe that he is prepared for an invasion.”
Then it gets interesting when she continues. “I also understand why the President of Ukraine wants to keep people calm and that he wants his economy not to suffer. But, on the other hand, if we were not threatening the sanctions and the rest, it would guarantee that Putin would invade. Let’s hope that diplomacy works. It’s about diplomacy deterrence. Diplomacy deterrence. And the president’s made it very clear. There’s a big price to pay for Russia to go there. So if Russia doesn’t invade, it’s not that he never intended to. It’s just that the sanctions worked.”
Did you get that? She’s building up Joe Biden to plant a seed to make it appear that if there is no invasion of Ukraine, it’s because Biden threatened sanctions, and she stipulates that it is a “guarantee” that Putin would invade if Joe Biden hadn’t promised sanctions for an invasion. She then doubles down, saying that if there is no invasion in the end, then it’s not because Putin never intended to invade, as if Pelosi would know this, it’s because Joe Biden’s brilliant use of sanctions worked.
Pelosi continued, “Well, look, I’m very proud of the work that the president has done. The unity of our allies and NATO to come to an agreement as to the severity of the sanctions is very, very important. And that is … that is something that Putin should pay very close attention to.”
Remember when the same Democrats said that President Donald Trump‘s use of sanctions at any time was immoral?
About three weeks ago, when Biden started talking about sanctions against Putin, the Russian president’s personal press secretary Dmitry Peskov told reporters that individual sanctions against Vladimir Putin wouldn’t be “painful” for him but would be “politically destructive” for the countries imposing such penalties. So, Putin doesn’t care about sanctions against him.
I think what’s going on here is the Democrats need a win. After a year of harmful results that stem from disastrous Biden policies on the American people and our country where he killed our energy policies that are harming everyday Americans, he intentionally allowed over 2 million illegal aliens to enter our country for no other reason that to ensure they get to vote in the future, failing to fix the supply chain problems for our country, spending us into an inflation nightmare, imposing vaccine mandates to force American citizens to take an experimental medicine that they do not want to take, and much more.
But the ultimate failure that will make it into the history books is the unbelievable incompetence shown during the withdrawal from Afghanistan where Biden ordered our military troops out first and then, as an afterthought, American citizens. It is still being reported that there are thousands of Americans that were left behind and are still behind enemy lines with the Taliban searching for them.
The US Senate Foreign Relations Committee has released a new report on the Biden administration’s withdrawal from Afghanistan. The report has found that as many as 9,000 Americans were left behind in Afghanistan during the disastrous withdrawal. The Biden administration knows how bad this makes them look and so they are looking for a win.
So they have been hyping up a potential Russian invasion of Ukraine, even though Putin has said repeatedly that he has no plans to invade the Eastern European country. I hate that the Biden administration is forcing me to support the sleazy Putin, but moving troops along the border of Ukraine is not breaking any laws.
Democrats need at least the perception of a win and so they are using their manufactured Russian invasion “crisis” to tell everyone that the Biden administration will give a strong response to their manufactured crisis if Putin invades, even though he keeps saying he has no plans to do so. And then, they give a specific date that their manufactured crisis is going to happen and if it doesn’t, then it’s only because Joe Biden is such a brilliant tactician, a world-class leader who outsmarted and subdued the Russian military. And when it’s all over, Biden can go back to watching reruns of Matlock as they feed him handfuls of grapes.
This entire Ukraine situation was manufactured for political reasons and I think it’s horrible when a president will use such tactics to gain a perceived win and if the tactic goes south, could cost thousands of soldiers’ lives by the time everything is said and done.
Don’t believe me that this looks like a manufactured crisis? Did you see this exchange between State Department Spokesman Ned Price and veteran AP reporter Matt Lee? Price makes assertions that Putin is planning to create a false flag operation for the purpose of initiating military activity along the border of Ukraine.
Price said that the US government has information that Russia was planning to stage fabricated attacks by Ukraine forces as a pretext for a further invasion of Ukraine. In other words, the Stte Department spokesman said that US intelligence says Russian military members will wear Ukrainian military uniforms and act out a fake attack on Russian troops so that Putin can unleash his military at the border.
It’s such an absurd claim that Matt Lee demanded to see the proof that supports the claim and as you will see, Price can’t do it.
This is the kind of nonsense Democrats are willing to go through to make themselves look good to the American people and the world. We have a group of world-class screwups who are running our country and it looks like they manufactured this Russia-Ukraine invasion for no other reason than to make Joe Biden and the Biden administration appear to be strong in the face of Putin and his military. Think of the money that this false flag operation is costing the taxpayers to pull off. Worse yet, think of the potential loss of life if hostilities do break out because of the amount of hype our side has been engaging in. This is not leadership. This is a scam.
