Addendum To The Previous Post: Remember, It Is Foolish Not To Trust The Government…

Heeeeere’s Kamala!

“What I made clear in our meeting is that, again, this is a dynamic situation. And depending on what happens in the coming days, we will reevaluate the need that Ukraine has and our ability to support…The purpose of the sanctions has always been and continues to be deterrence. But let’s also recognize the unique nature of the sanctions that we have outlined. These are some of the greatest sanctions, if not the strongest that we’ve ever issued, as I articulated yesterday. It is directed at institutions — in particular, financial institutions — and individuals, and it will exact absolute harm for the Russian economy. And their government… [But] As the president has said we believe that Putin’s made his decision. Period.”

Yes, that was the Vice-President of the United States, engaging in Authentic Frontier Gibberish to simultaneously describe U.S. sanctions as designed to deter the threatened Russian invasion of the Ukraine, designate those sanctions as the “greatest,” and then to admit that deterrence is futile.

Can Americans trust that this word salad is honest and transparent?

No.

In light of that mess, can they be reasonably expected to trust in the skill and expertise of such an individual designated to be the #2 elected leader in the land?

No.

Can Americans be reasonably expected to trust a President who deliberately chose someone this inept to be Vice-President?

No.

Does the fact that someone with Harris’s limitations was dispatched to the Munich Security Conference to confer with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyyin (left, above) in the midst of the dire crisis at the Ukraine border justify any trust in the judgement of the Biden Administration whatsoever?

No.

By the way, Republicans are at fault for the fact that so many Americans distrust their government.

  1. I posted this on Facebook earlier today…

    I’m curious what others think of the constant in-our-face propaganda we’re seeing and hearing regarding Russia and Ukraine?

    I honestly don’t know what to believe regarding the Russia and Ukraine standoff.

    Personally; I think the political left in Washington DC has shown us a pattern of propaganda falsehoods in their narratives so many times over the last 6+ years that it’s beyond me why anyone would blindly accept any propaganda narrative that they or their lapdog media actively push?

    My gut tells me that there is something wrong with the Russia-Ukraine narrative that’s being pushed but I can’t put my finger on it.

    My gut has been wrong before.

    • Have we ever had a U.S. president tell us on television every day for at least two weeks that one of our enemies is going to invade an ally? Why are you telling us this, Joe? I just don’t get it. What does this bring to the table? What is the American public supposed to do with this information? Are we supposed to say, “Gee, we’ve really got a good intelligence apparatus!”

      I have no idea what Vlad’s up to. Does he really want to have body bags coming home from Ukraine? Did he spend too much time in Germany? Does he really think he can occupy and subdue Ukraine and its inhabitants? Who is he kidding?

      A long time, now former (I was not sufficiently apoplectic about Trump being allowed even to breath air) friend is half Ukrainian, on his mother’s side. He told me years ago in passing of how the Ukrainians defeated the Russian navy sometime in the 18the or 19th Century: The Ukes (as they’re known in Youngstown, Ohio) swam out to the Russian ships with screwdrivers in their mouths, snuck onto the ships, snuck up behind the Russian sailors standing watch, and PITHED them with their screwdrivers.

      Good luck, Vlad. Have fun being a conquering hero and enjoying the adulation of all those Ukrainians you consider to be Russians, even though they don’t think they’re any more Russian than they are Chinese. And watch your back, buddy.

      • I hope all the voters who thought the bad actors in the world would stand down while the U.S. was headed by a demented old fool and a relatively young nitwit are happy with what they got.

        Jesus H. Christ. Shouldn’t Ron Klain at least had the balls to go to that conference himself instead of sending the first gentleman’s Madame Nitwit?

  2. One working hypothesis that I’ve heard is that the Biden Administration’s constant ping-ponging between the “Big Bad Russia threat” and the “US sanctions & diplomacy will keep the Rooskies in check” narratives is because they’re trying to show that, in contrast to their incompetence in the Afghan debacle, the Administration has foreign relations credibility.
    I’ve yet to be convinced of such an assertion.

    • Dr. Emilio Lizardo wrote, “One working hypothesis that I’ve heard is that the Biden Administration’s constant ping-ponging between the “Big Bad Russia threat” and the “US sanctions & diplomacy will keep the Rooskies in check” narratives is because they’re trying to show that, in contrast to their incompetence in the Afghan debacle, the Administration has foreign relations credibility.”

      In other words the narrative is pure propaganda.

      If Russia really wants to make the Biden Administration look like complete fear mongering propagandist imbeciles then all he’d have to do is sit tight, continue his war games and not invade Ukraine while the Biden Administration continues to look foolish with their Magic 8 Ball predictions that an invasion is imminent and spending millions and millions of dollars to oppose Russian aggression that doesn’t unfolds.

      President Biden’s decision making tool…

      Deluding the public is part of the political left’s propaganda narratives, why would anyone think that this Russia Ukraine propaganda narrative is any different?

  3. Forget it. Ukraine is a lost cause. A president who meant business would have made NATO snap to attention and deployed a huge number of air and sea assets to vantage points where they could be used immediately. Let these Russian soldiers look up fearing that they’re going to see the devil’s cross as a prequel to a 30 mm Cannon slicing their tank open like a cheap tinfoil liner. Let them look out to sea wondering just how many of our latest submarines are there under the surface ready to hit them with a volley of Tomahawk cruise missiles.

    Instead, this is what we got. I haven’t seen crisis management this inept in my lifetime except possibly the failed mission to rescue the hostages in Iran. This is verging on Munich territory, when Neville Chamberlain came back naively believing he had purchased peace for our time. In the meantime Churchill accurately said that an appeaser is one who feeds the crocodile hoping it will eat him last. The only difference between then and now is that when the proverbial you know what hit the fan, Chamberlain stepped aside and let someone who actually could handle this crisis, namely Churchill, take the reins. For better or for worse the United States decided that the head of the executive branch of government would serve for a finite term of 4 years at a time, which could only end with his death, his incapacity, or his removal via impeachment. On balance it was probably a good thing, because it meant that a president who either angered the opposition too much or lost too much support within his own party, or some combination of both, could not be unceremoniously kicked to the curb, as we already saw them try to do with Trump. However, in this case it means we are stuck with this inept leadership for almost three more years, since even if Congress flips this November an impeachment would just get us president Harris, as seen above.

    This country has landed itself in a nice pickle because of who it didn’t want in power rather than who it did. Biden got nominated because his party and its supporters did not want Bernie Sanders, who would have been an even bigger disaster, but who probably would not have gotten elected. He got elected because the people of this country were fed up with Donald Trump. However, this was illustrative of the admonition that you should not be against something before you know what you are for. It’s also illustrative of the difference between campaigning and governing.

    Biden and his handlers have committed close to the ultimate breach of trust against the American people. It would be one thing not to keep this or that campaign promise. That is par for the course and every president has found that making promises and keeping them are two very different things. Say what you will about trump, he made promises and at least tried to follow through on them. Obama at least followed through on one very big one. Biden got elected and suddenly took a ridiculously sharp left turn and became not at all what the American people voted for. Not only did he go so far left he was in danger of falling off, but he proved himself to be completely incompetent in the foreign policy arena. Honestly, I can’t even think of who the last Democratic president who was terribly good at foreign policy was. Obama sucked, Bill Clinton treated it like it was optional, and Carter was clueless. If and when we get through this mess, I don’t know how anyone other than a partisan true believer will ever trust that party again.

  4. Biden tweeted in 2020 that Putin did not want him to win the election because he was the only candidate that would stand up to him “toe to toe”. Big talk from a guy who, when the shit hits the fan, he sends his incompetent VP to be his stand in. Biden is not simply incompetent; he is a farce as a leader.

  5. Can we all just take a step back here…

    Why is Kamala giving Ukraine pressers? Russia is about to invade Ukraine (at the time of this article’s posting, looks like they might be in there already, real time). Regardless of the exact fallout, global leaders are going to have to reconcile their plans with Russia’s actions. We’re going to have to relook at alliances, organizations, plans, expenses, we’re going to have a humanitarian crisis, at a time where there were already a lot of global refugees. Why on God’s green earth is the woman who made her name on her knees and pulled herself up by her garter strap and melanin on that stage and not the President of the United States?

    I suppose we shouldn’t be too surprised. Kamala is the Covid czar, the border czar, the Russia czar (kinda)… Damn near every impossible job that is doomed to fail has been dropped unceremoniously into Kamala’s lap, leaving the dual impressions that this administration literally can’t do anything right, coupled with how Joe Biden spends most of his day eating pudding cups.
