Backing down with alacrity

The neoclowns are belatedly beginning to realize that a proxy war with Russia over Ukraine is not going to end well for them or their clown-puppet regime:
Ukraine has warned Russia that it will bear 'very painful' consequences if it invades as Vladimir Putin continues to mass his forces in eastern Europe. Dmytro Kuleba, the country's foreign minister, added that Moscow is 'openly' threatening Ukraine with 'destruction' by stationing 80,000 troops along its border - with more arriving every day.

He issued the warning following a meeting with the foreign ministers of Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia - NATO allies in the region - saying 'the four of us condemn the exacerbation of the situation by Russia.' 

'The world is on the side of Ukraine and international law, and this is one of the elements of restraining Russia from reckless actions,' he added.

He spoke as Joe Biden prepares to slap sanctions on Russia in response to bounties put on American troops in Afghanistan, attempts to interfere in US elections, and the SolarWinds cyber attack of federal government data which US intelligence services blame on Moscow. Sanctions are likely to include the expulsion of 10 Russians from the US including diplomats, extending a ban on US banks trading Russian sovereign debt, and targeted measures against 30 Russian entities, US media reported, saying the move could happen as soon as today.

In response, Putin's spokesman Dmitry Peskov warned that Mosow will respond in kind to any 'illegal' sanctions, adding that it 'will not help' the prospect of talks between Biden and Putin. He added that it is 'too early' to talk about de-escalating tensions along the Ukraine border despite Biden's calls for restraint earlier in the week....

In another sign that Biden is now softening his tone towards Moscow, the deployment of two US destroyers into the Black Sea was cancelled last night.

Turkey had originally confirmed that Washington had asked for permission for two warships - the USS Donald Cook and USS Roosevelt - to transit through straits which it polices and into the Black Sea in a move that was assumed to be a deterrent to Putin.

But last night Turkey said the U.S. Embassy in Ankara had notified the foreign ministry of the decision, without giving a reason. U.S. officials were not immediately available for comment. 

Once more, we see Vladimir Putin demonstrating the difference between influence and power. It's all fun and games until someone sends 100,000 troops supported by air, armor, and artillery on your border. However, it's important to note that the USA is now clearly in a state of cold war with both Russia and China, only this time the economic, technology, and demographic trends are not in its favor.

What it must be like to be a NeoCon today, with China threatening to invade Taiwan and Russia threatening to invade the Ukraine. Suppose they both happened at the same time, like multiple banks getting knocked over at the same time... where do the cops rush to?

Like hound dogs that pick up multiple scents in all different directions, the NeoCons might run themselves to death chasing threats, without catching any of them. What they call a target-rich environment, could easily turn into overwhelming opposition and fait accompli.

Without revealing materials and methods, both Russia and China would suffer in an escalation with the US. If need be we can open either or both countries down to the mantle and leave bubbling magma where strategic installations are. However, since population reduction is the goal of all fake conflict now and removal of circa 100MM US citizens the goal, absorbing a first strike is as good a way as any to further the NWO. I humbly suggest that the circles of history are NOT repeating here despite appearances.

Because surprising a 600 man Combat group in Syria is the same as surprising a massive force within their own borders.

Nor is Ukraine, taking feelings of resentment for a past condition, and bashing their heads against a wall until the candy spills out.

It's the bought off clowns in the DS and the Biden Administration making these announcements. The prior administration was not afraid to name China and pushed to name the actual culprit. That is gone now.

It's just like the DS released an "election hacking" intelligence assessment after Biden took over that said Russia and Iran did tons of election hacking but China barely did any.

I heard some other report on how China hacked their way into the OPM datebase year ago. I recall they logged in with a valid user name and password and copied the entire database.

Ukraine has been wasting its soldiers' lives in Donetsk and Lugansk for over half a decade. They allowed their national strategy to be dictated by their version of the military industrial complex. Businessmen were enriched massively on a fattening diet of government contracts while providing very little. Ordinary citizens suffer not only taxation, but exclusion from international payment methods.

To me, the future of deep state corporate control looks very much like Ukraine today.

From the perspective of the people in Ukraine, the Russian buildup isn't threatening war. It's threatening to expand the current war against a nation that wasted lives and treasure needlessly. Ukraine has been wasting its soldiers' lives in Donetsk and Lugansk for over half a decade. They allowed their national strategy to be dictated by their version of the military industrial complex.

Ordinary citizens suffer not only taxation, but exclusion from international payment methods, which excludes them from building their own small businesses. Covid lockdowns hit, making travel restrictions worse, further impoverishing the people.

Can the people just vote themselves out of this situation? Nope! The obviously fraud-induced result of the US 2020 election comes as no surprise to the Ukrainians because that's what EVERY election is like there.

@Vox - somewhat related to the article, but also a lingering question I have recently been stewing on. It’s clear that Putin is a legit Alpha....and dealing with Biden (not sure what to categorize him as, regardless of previous state/current state), Biden is getting devastated.

Generally speaking, what happens when a Sigma and and Alpha go at each other? I do realize that part of being a Sigma is knowing when to respect the hierarchy and current status, but there are lines that a Sigma refuses to concede....I am seeing it now at my present employer, and I am curious how it will shake out, were I a betting man; Too many individual variables to post here, just a “finger in the air” how these types of altercations end up being resolved.

Were I to be honest, I am a Venn diagram of Alpha/Beta (I look around any group and look to see if competent leadership is present or active before I start to engage, but really enjoy being a lieutenant), and I am not looking to change allegiances, but my personal scenario has the makings of tremendous collateral damage; The Sigma involved is a long time employee, brilliant Software Engineer, fit, tall and handsome, and generally left to tackle big projects in a silo, with trust from the leadership he will deliver.

At this point, I just assume that we're in a cold war with any country that resists Diasporan control, and that includes Israel.

Give his person a cookie! Truer words never written. I disagree with Vox about US & China - that is all dress up and pretend Cold War. The one with Russia is very, very real, which is why Ukraine/NATO/USA are backing down,

Russia cannot win a war with the US, at least without nukes but the US can lose a war with Russia.

Basic probability and statistics done on election night show how absurdly illegitimate our "electoral process" was.

As of 1/6/2021 we are occupied by a coterie of hostile foreign-owned oligarchs who are NOT "our government".

He was surrounded by liars and traitors and stymied at every turn. He's not a magician. He did the best he could given the circumstances. Frankly it's the patriots that failed him by not showing up on Jan 6-20. Caesar can't cross the Rubicon without his legions.

The roots of America's problems aren't corrupt elites, it's the corrupt people. The current elites are only in power because the populace tolerate or are unwilling to put in the necessary sacrifices to overthrow them.

Remember Sodom and Gomorrah weren't destroyed because of some corrupt majors or bureaucrats. They were destroyed because of the utter corruption of the people. The corruption in the hearts of people are at the root of the problem.

By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, including the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 1701 et seq.) (IEEPA), the National Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C. 1601 et seq.) (NEA), section 212(f) of the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952 (8 U.S.C. 1182(f)), and section 301 of title 3, United States Code,

I, JOSEPH R. BIDEN JR., President of the United States of America, find that specified harmful foreign activities of the Government of the Russian Federation — in particular, efforts to undermine the conduct of free and fair democratic elections and democratic institutions in the United States and its allies and partners; to engage in and facilitate malicious cyber-enabled activities against the United States and its allies and partners; to foster and use transnational corruption to influence foreign governments; to pursue extraterritorial activities targeting dissidents or journalists; to undermine security in countries and regions important to United States national security; and to violate well-established principles of international law, including respect for the territorial integrity of states — constitute an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security, foreign policy, and economy of the United States. I hereby declare a national emergency to deal with that threat.

I'd like to see a televised summit between Putin and the Manchurian Emperor, just to see 喬拜登 lose a lot of face.

Blogger Emmanuel April 15, 2021 5:48 PM  

The way I understand it, Putin mentionned that US ships in the Black Sea won't make the return trip, and the remaining analysts with a military background in Pentagon confirmed that 2 destroyers in a Russian lake will face significantly more lethal risk than the usual navigation hazard that are already taking a toll on the US navy.

Blogger Slippin JImmy April 15, 2021 6:36 PM  

Yes it was an irregular force, probably hardcore Russia nationalists or Chechen jihadists. Putin was probably quite pleased to be rid of them.

Blogger Ingot9455 April 15, 2021 7:13 PM  

@85 Why is it that that emergency order from Biden looks designed to defend against Putin releasing evidence showing how the election was stolen?

>> What it must be like to be a NeoCon today, with China threatening to invade Taiwan and Russia threatening to invade the Ukraine. Suppose they both happened at the same time, like multiple banks getting knocked over at the same time... where do the cops rush to?

The VA American military is still manned and funded to be prepared for 3 wars simultaneously.

Russia has electronic weapons that can completely blackout Aegis radar, for a fraction of what we waste. Raytheon sells us missiles that don't detonate, and the F-35 is designed to fail. Hillary had prepared to send us into a world war that we were intentionally crippled for, so that when Russia whipped us with cheap weapons we would be enraged into kill mode. That is why the U.S. military will deliver God's justice upon the cabal and wipe them out for attempting to engineer Revelation themselves. It will be biblical annihilation not seen since the hand wrote on the wall.

Nobody was expecting that, but he set himself up for failure by surrounding himself with those liars and traitors — if he'd been about anti-corruption as Drain the Swamp indicated, then he'd have kept those people away instead of hiring them because "they're the experts."

He did the best he could given the circumstances.
Quit making excuses for him.

People DID show up, idiot.

The roots of America's problems aren't corrupt elites, it's the corrupt people. The current elites are only in power because the populace tolerate or are unwilling to put in the necessary sacrifices to overthrow them.
Have you read the Declaration of Independence?
People are more disposed to suffer evils while they are sufferable.
(And the recent "you need to submit to government, always" that the Churches have been pushing the past few decades don't help.)

Remember Sodom and Gomorrah weren't destroyed because of some corrupt majors or bureaucrats. They were destroyed because of the utter corruption of the people. The corruption in the hearts of people are at the root of the problem.
True.
But you're ignoring some of the facts: we saw just a few months ago that the outcomes are rigged, we've also seen the USSC and the courts punt on securing Justice for the people. The courts have done a bangup job of imposing evil policies, like abortion… and again it was the courts that imposed homosexual 'marriage'.
Did you forget that even California amended their Constitution to prohibit homosexual 'marriage', and that was thrown out by a single federal judge?

Dude, the people who showed up are currently being railroaded into prison sentences. I'm not interested in bashing Trump for failing to be Caesar, because we don't know what threats were made that day. But the biggest black mark on his presidency is the way he treated the people who showed up to march under his banner on Jan. 6th. He shouldn't have played into the "violent insurrection" narrative, and once he decided he was surrendering anyway, he should have pardoned them. The establishment could have persecuted them anyway, but real Americans would have known they were patriots being persecuted, instead of the foggy status they have now.

Trump never supported his supporters.

The Trump vaccines may yet overshadow that big black mark.
