I have a feeling of déjà vu today. It’s 1968 again.
From the day he took office Joe Biden has sought to weaken the United States of America. Biden began his Presidency bowing to Russia when he lifted sanctions on Nordstream 2. He said would tolerate a “minor incursion” by Russia into Ukraine. Biden has done nothing but signal lack of strength and determination and appease our adversaries.
He continues to boost China at the expense of jobs in the US when he lifted tariffs.

Biden shut down the Keystone XL pipeline in order to make us more dependent on Russian oil
In July Biden gave Putin 16 US infrastructure entities which were to be off limits to cyber-attacks, implying that everything else was fair game.
The same people (democrats) who are screaming about democracy being crushed in Ukraine are making boatloads of money (Biden family, Pelosi) from the authoritarian regime in China. But is Ukraine a democracy?
“The American people understand that defending democracy and liberty is never without cost,” President Biden said recently, regarding the United States’ role in protecting Ukraine.
However, the Economist Intelligence Unit, which recently released its 2021 Democracy Index, doesn’t even consider Ukraine either a full or flawed democracy. Rather, Ukraine falls into the “hybrid regime” bucket, tied for 86th place with Mexico in the democracy rankings. (The United States ranks 26th, making it a “flawed democracy.”)
Ukraine ranks 17th in Eastern Europe, five spots ahead of Russia but with a significant gap in their scores.
Ukraine is a republic, with a president chosen by popular election, a prime minister appointed by the president and confirmed by the legislature, a unicameral legislature that’s a mix of single-seat and proportional representation, and a Supreme Court that is appointed by the president.
Putin clearly is afraid of Ukraine becoming more of an independent democracy and desperately wants Ukraine not to join NATO.
Still, over the last year Biden has begun to beat the drums of war. The President democrats tell us is trying to prevent war called Putin a “murderer” as though that would be an impressive addition to Biden’s curriculum vitae.
Responding to the comments, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Thursday that “there hasn’t been anything like this in history.”
He said it was clear that Biden “definitely does not want to improve relations” with Russia and that the relationship between the two countries is “very bad.” When asked how it can affect relations, Peskov said “it is absolutely clear how,” but refused to elaborate.
“These are very bad statements by the President of the United States. He definitely does not want to improve relations with us, and we will continue to proceed from this,” Peskov said.
Over the last few weeks democrats have also been encouraging war. I don’t think there’s any question that the left sees this as a crisis not to be wasted. They are hoping that a war can save Biden’s pathetic Presidency.
You think things are expensive now? You just wait.
Say what you want, but there were four years of peace under Trump.
