The Smell Of War

Don’t Sniff The Bear!

The Biden Regime declared a national emergency at Ukraine-Russia border. How does this make sense? The US border is not in Ukraine. Our southern border is wide open to anyone who wants to waltz in—armed and otherwise. It’s a disaster that requires a national emergency—not a country halfway round the globe. Let Ukraine take care of its own problems. We’re not the world’s policeman. OH—but I almost forgot. Billions of dollars are sent to foreign countries so politicians can engage in graft and money laundering. Biden doesn’t want to put a stop to that. After all, his own son, Hunter, benefitted greatly.

Biden declared ‘unwavering support’ for protecting Ukraine’s border, but again…our own borders are left wide open. Let’s all let that sink in.

Biden then threatened the usual sanctions against Russia. He’s poking the Russian bear with a stick just as Hillary wanted to do. She claimed Russia stole the election away from her, which is complete nonsense. 

The Socialist Democrats seemed determined to carry on their war mongering to benefit the big banks and the Military Industrial Complex, but if war does break out with Russia, it can obviously escalate into a nuclear exchange and we have a demented fool near the nuclear button. Let’s let that sink in, too.

JoeBama Flinches, Putin Closes Kerch Strait and Blocks Black Sea to Foreign Warships

As Russia continues to build up troop presence near the Ukraine border, Joe Biden sent a warning to Vladimir Putin.  In response Russia told the U.S. to stay out of the Black Sea “for your own good” while they conduct exercises.  Biden turned back two U.S. navy ships….  Hours later Putin closed the Kerch Strait.

The Biden administration is attempting to give the illusion of strength but it is all an act and Russia knows it.   The Ukraine is vulnerable to Russian absorption because a large portion of the Ukrainian people support Russia.   NATO is attempting to issue threats, but Russia knows the EU, and specifically Germany, will do nothing except grasp their pearls.  It is all false bravado on the part of the NATO alliance; they have no teeth and their electorate have no desire for another conflict.

A Background Note –  Additional leverage Putin holds goes back to the Nordstream 2 gas pipeline to supply the energy needs of Germany.  German Chancellor Angela Merkel was warned by President Trump not to go forward with the pipeline that creates a geopolitical leverage for Russia.  Merkel went ahead despite the warnings, and adding salt to the issue, Germany never upheld their NATO funding commitments (2% of GDP).  This was a major source of contention between Trump and Merkel.

The knuckleheads behind Biden attempted to flex their muscle toward Russia through a series of sanctions earlier today.   The United States sanctioned 32 Russian entities and individuals along with six technology companies, formally attributed the SolarWinds cyber breach to Russian intelligence agencies, and accused Moscow of still trying to hack American targets.

Russian President Vladimir Putin doesn’t care about words.  Words, without action are meaningless.   Putin knows the Biden administration is weak domestically because the majority of the U.S. electorate view his administration as illegitimate.   Putin also knows Barack Obama foreign policy is essentially Biden foreign policy, and Putin accepts that both Obama and Biden are intent to weaken the U.S. globally.

From the Russian perspective a bunch of noisy and pontificating moonbats are currently running everything in the U.S. and there is absolutely nothing to fear because their leadership, our  U.S. government, is weak and unsupported.  Putin knows Americans are not going to agree to another regional war in Europe when the damn Europeans are not even willing to defend themselves.

Joe Biden acting like Scott Farcus only works until Ralphie puts a fist in Farcus’s face.

And don’t forget… the number one asset of Russia is energy (oil and gas); JoeBama’s energy policy has effectively assisted the Russian economy.   So there’s that…

U.S. Intelligence Now Says Story of Russian Bounties on American Troops Likely False

After the media blew up a story about Russian military putting bounties on American troops in an effort to shape a Russian collusion narrative against the administration of President Trump, the U.S. intelligence community now says that story was likely false.

(Via Daily Beast) – [O]n Thursday, the Biden administration announced that U.S. intelligence only had “low to moderate” confidence in the story after all. Translated from the jargon of spyworld, that means the intelligence agencies have found the story is, at best, unproven—and possibly untrue.

[…] According to the officials on Thursday’s call, the reporting about the alleged “bounties” came from “detainee reporting” – raising the specter that someone told their U.S.-aligned Afghan jailers what they thought was necessary to get out of a cage. Specifically, the official cited “information and evidence of connections to criminal agents in Afghanistan and elements of the Russian government” as sources for the intelligence community’s assessment.
