So here we are in a shooting war with Russia. We are supplying the weapons, and the Ukrainians are doing the fighting and dying. But make no mistake. In addition to arming the Ukrainians, by our sanctions, we have declared economic war on Russia and, reportedly, are also using our satellites to target Russian troops for death and destruction. We are in this war just as surely as if Americans were on the ground pulling the triggers.
And, as this goes on, the question becomes how will it play out? Will Russia retaliate with cyberattacks to disrupt our domestic power grid, pipelines, transportation, financial institutions or other infrastructure? Will it unleash chemical or biological agents? Will it use tactical nukes to speed up the rubbling of Ukraine’s cities? How will we respond if Russia pursues any of these options? And how close are we to that one misstep that could cause events to spiral out of control into nuclear conflagration?
How did we get here?
The answer is simple. The titular head of the Biden regime is weak, corrupt, and mentally incompetent. None of this is or has been a secret. All of it has been on embarrassing display before the entire world and was disastrously demonstrated by Joe Biden’s witless and chaotic withdrawal from Afghanistan as well as his astoundingly moronic prewar assurance to Vladmir Putin that the United States would not militarily oppose an invasion of Ukraine.
What are the Biden family’s benefactors in Ukraine and Russia getting for their money? Whose interests is the Biden regime serving?
Biden’s caretakers have tried to hide and explain away his glaringly obvious unfitness for office. During the 2020 presidential campaign, he was kept out of public view. As our purported president, his public appearances have been marked by his inability to extemporaneously speak in a coherent manner. He even struggles to read off a teleprompter and frequently appears to be confused and lost in a mental fog.
Nevertheless, the Biden regime has been aided and abetted by corporate media eager to do their bit to mask Biden’s deficits. Similarly, none of the corporate media have questioned or investigated the Biden family’s murky financial dealings in Ukraine, Russia, and China.
In this regard, the Biden regime has been assisted by our intelligence and federal law enforcement agencies that kneecapped Donald Trump’s presidency based on lies concocted by Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign while dismissing as Russian disinformation the evidence of the Biden family’s corruption contained on Hunter Biden’s laptop computer.
Joe Biden was installed in the Oval Office by a process that had all the features of the color revolutions that our deep state has so successfully fomented around the world. On election night, the vote count was mysteriously halted. There followed an avalanche of mail-in ballots of unknown provenance. The corporate media promptly declared Biden the winner, and denounced anyone who dared to publicly question this outcome. Those who persisted in challenging the result were smeared, banned from social media, and canceled. Many have been sued in court or had their livelihoods threatened or destroyed.
And with that, it was mission accomplished. America’s color revolution had succeeded in installing a drooling fool in the Oval Office.
Today Russia has decided to exploit Biden’s obvious weaknesses. But how long will it be before Communist China, North Korea, Iran, Islamic terrorists, narco states and every other malign element take advantage of the unprecedented opportunity presented by Biden’s weak and semi-comatose leadership?
We must face facts. Donald Trump, the only President in this century who did not get us into a war and whose policies produced a thriving economy, American energy independence, and stable foreign relations, has been replaced by a literal idiot who has wrecked our economy, opened our borders, and undermined our national security. And now, in his most remarkable achievement to date, he has gotten us into a shooting war between two countries where in each he and his family have surreptitiously reaped untold wealth.
The fact is that we have gone to war on behalf of a country where, according to a U.S. Senate report, the Biden family has had questionable financial dealings and are fighting yet another country where Elena Baturina, the wife of the former mayor of Moscow and reputedly the wealthiest woman in Russia, made a 2014 wire transfer of $3.5 million to Rosemont Seneca Thornton LLC, a company co-founded by Hunter Biden. In 2015, then Vice President Joe Biden was seen having dinner in Georgetown with Ms. Baturina. Unlike other oligarchs, she reportedly has not been subject to the U.S. sanctions which were imposed following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
All of which gives rise to certain unavoidable questions. What are the Biden family’s benefactors in Ukraine and Russia getting for their money? Whose interests is the Biden regime serving? What covert influences may be in play and what effect, if any, are they having on our involvement in and conduct of the war?
These are vital and troubling questions. We are staring at the possibility of getting into a nuclear war over a conflict that does not directly or immediately affect our national security or survival. Russia’s invasion of Ukraine is vile, cruel, and evil, but it does not pose an imminent threat to the United States.
Moreover, why is the Biden regime giving precedence to the invasion of Ukraine over the ongoing invasion of the United States through our southern border? How is it that the Biden regime is allowing and promoting the invasion of our nation while – at the risk of nuclear world war – it has maneuvered us into an armed conflict over the territorial integrity of a country that abuts Russia?
Is this a case of misdirection? Is the Biden regime using this war to distract us from the disaster at our southern border and the wanton and mindless destruction of our energy independence and economy?
Don’t expect any of our leaders or corporate media to pose or seek answers to these questions. But consider this. The fate of the world is in the hands of a man who is literally and demonstrably a weak-willed and mentally disabled dimwit with highly questionable financial interests on both sides of the war in Ukraine as well as in Communist China which is on the verge of coming to Russia’s assistance.
What could possibly go wrong?
