America is BACK: Brandon's Big Plan for Stopping Russia From Invading Was to BEG CHINA TO PRESSURE RUSSIA;
Instead of Helping Brandon, China Betrayed Him and Told Russia All About His Undignified Groveling

Actually, this wouldn't fit in the headline: Brandon shared secret intelligence with China to prove Russia was about to invade.

China showed how much it Feared and Respected Brandon by immediately giving that US intelligence to Russia.

America is Back, baby!

Article:


Over three months, senior Biden administration officials held half a dozen urgent meetings with top Chinese officials in which the Americans presented intelligence showing Russia's troop buildup around Ukraine and beseeched the Chinese to tell Russia not to invade, according to U.S. officials.

Each time, the Chinese officials, including the foreign minister and the ambassador to the United States, rebuffed the Americans, saying they did not think an invasion was in the works. After one diplomatic exchange in December, U.S. officials got intelligence showing Beijing had shared the information with Moscow, telling the Russians that the United States was trying to sow discord -- and that China would not try to impede Russian plans and actions, the officials said.

The previously unreported talks between American and Chinese officials show how the Biden administration tried to use intelligence findings and diplomacy to persuade a superpower it views as a growing adversary to stop the invasion of Ukraine, and how that nation, led by President Xi Jinping, persistently sided with Russia even as the evidence of Moscow's plans for a military offensive grew over the winter.

The NeverTrump Dead-Ender told us that Russia would attack the world while RUSSIAN AGENT Trump was in the White House.

Spoiler Alert: Russia did not attack the world when Trump was in the White House. Also, he was not a RUSSIAN AGENT.

trumprussiaattack.jpg

He reportedly made a similar threat to Xi, regarding Beijing.

Buh Muh Russian Agent.

Meanwhile, NeverTrump (and the left, but I repeat myself) told us that Brandon would "stare down the Russians" and finally "get tough with Russia" and instead he's kowtowed to them, undid Trump's hold on a pipeline the Russians wanted, given them permission for a "minor incursion," and then sat by as Russia took Ukraine.

So, the bad things they said would happen under Trump, did not happen, and the bad things they said would not happen under President Shitpants, did happen.

Hey let's listen more to these guys. They seem to be really strong thinkers who are good at their jobs.

I wonder how AllahPundit, David Frum, Matthew Dowd, Jennifer Rubin, Bill Kristol, Matt K. Lewis, and the rest of the NeverTrump Dead-End Gang are going to blame Brandon's Beg China Play on Trump and Tucker Carlson.

I just want to ask them: Which parts of the State Department does Trump control? Which segments of the National Security apparatus answer to him?

Which elements of the US Armed Forces are taking orders from Tucker Carlson?

None, of course. Obviously.

They worked and cheated to force Trump into retirement and now insinuate that he's... still in control of the government.

You know who else believes that Trump still secretly controls the government?

QAnon believes that Trump still secretly controls the government.

The NeverTrump Delusionaries are continuing to spin out yet another Paranoid Fantasy in which the sitting president, who personally controls both the entire diplomatic power of the US as well as the military power of the US, and furthermore, needs no popular mandate to wield either one of these (short of having to get a treaty signed or a declaration of war -- neither of which is going to happen), is not responsible for anything that happens.

The people responsible are a former president, chilling out at his place at Mar-a-Lago, because he sometimes does not condemn Putin forcefully enough, which...

What?

See, they never finish these sentences. They just hint. And they do not finish these thoughts because these thoughts are stupid. If they finished these thoughts, it would be obvious that they are either delusionary or lying or both.

So let's finish these thoughts for AllahPundit, Bill Kristol, Tom Nichols, Matthew Dowd, Ramesh Ponuru, etc. Let's finish the insinuations they dare not finish themselves:

"Trump sometimes says that Putin was 'smart' to start the invasion in Russia-friendly territory and those words... traveled backwards in time to alight upon Putin's eager ears and thereby convince him that invading Ukraine, which he'd always considered to be a top priority, having already done so when Biden was Vice President in 2014, was a really great idea."

It's stupid. It makes no sense. Which is why they never say it. They just keep bringing this up, going "See? See? See!?"

See what, AllahPundit? What, specifically, are you claiming was the tangible effect on the world that Trump's statement had?

And why do you continue shrieking about things whose tangible effect on the world you cannot (or will not) even put into words while you assiduously refuse to mention things that plainly did have a tangible effect on the world, like Brandon's cancellation of US pipeline construction and drilling?

Right now, Brandon is Reassuring the World that not a single sanction he's imposing will even touch Russia's chief (and virtually only) exports, oil and gas.

In fact, energy is so off-limits to sanctions that even wood is protected from sanctions.

The reason? Well, thanks to Brandon undoing Trump's work in making the US a net energy exporter, oil is short again, and Europe will not tolerate making energy more expensive.

In addition, people are saying that slapping sanctions on Russia's oil and gas would benefit Russia, because sanctions would just increase the price of oil and gas. Russia would still sell its oil and gas -- but at higher prices. In some markets -- black and gray market -- they'd have to sell at a discount, but that would be at a discount from prices artificially spiked by sanctions. They'd still be making more on oil and gas than they are now, and, thanks to Brandon reducing US energy production, they're already making more money on oil and gas than they did under Trump.

So that's a tangible, real, actual, concrete way in which Brandon, who NeverTrump told us would finally Get Tough on Russia, has actually made Russia stronger and in fact given Russia the whip-hand in Ukraine and in Europe.

And what does AllahPundit and NeverTrump whine about?

"Trump said something I didn't like about Putin's tactics being 'smart.' And that tangibly impacts real-world events because mumble mumble mumble Traitors All Among Us."

This is what neocons always do -- they have no plans, they have no solutions, so they just smear opponents as Traitors.

What are they actually arguing for? They do not say. They obviously do not want war with Russia. (I... hope? I admit, a lot of them are positively deranged -- I can't say for certain. Maybe some do now want the Cleansing of the Unclean World With Nuclear Fire. We have sinned, Trumpishly; we must be made pure again.)

So what do they actually want? They claim that anyone who does not join them in Uncritically Supporting Brandon is Undermining the Unified US Front and stopping them from executing their great plan, whatever that is.

So what is that plan? When I'm not clapping hard enough for Brandon, what is the great plan I'm actually blocking from taking effect?

They never say. Because there is no great plan. And because there is no great plan, they have nothing to sell, except for smearing their opponents as Traitors and Foreign Spies.

You know, like people really committed to democracy and Civil Discourse always do.

If we gave you all the "support" you require for your great plans, and all the political power you so obviously crave, what exactly would you do?!?

You never say, because you don't know! You have no ideas! You have nothing! You have literally no thoughts, no plans, no ideas, no solutions except the one Guiding Holy Writ:

ORANGE

MAN

BAD

That's literally your only stock in trade. If you have anything more than that -- prove me a liar right now by telling me what exactly you would do if you had carte blanche.

Crickets. Silence.

1. Everyone uncritically supports Brandon and denounces Trump

2. ...

3. Profit and also Putin is thrown out of a Kremlin spire Because Democracy

You've got nothing. You have nothing except derangement and bitterness and the vig to collect for fundraising for Democrats.

By the way, National Review's Charles Cooke says "Putin has been clever here" to invade the Russian-friendly areas, precisely because the American public doesn't quite know what to do in situations where there's a colorable claim of a "liberating force" coming to the aid of a "breakaway republic."

Is Charles Cooke now also a Traitor? Does he also now Work For Putin, simply for recognizing that a clever, though amoral, stratagem was in fact a clever, though amoral, stratagem?

And, more importantly, can we say that just as Trump somehow retroactively caused the Ukrainian invasion by afterwards calling Putin's scheme "smart," should we also say that Charles Cooke's admission that Putin's scheme was "clever" had a similar time-traveling retroactive causation of the invasion?


No seriously, let's listen to these Very Serious Thinkers some more:

Putin has motivations and...they aren't that hard to understand. He is not a good man, but treating him like a cartoon character is only going to get a lot of people killed.

*As an aside, if Lucas put ANY effort into the character he could have made him a good guy reformer that "embraced the dark side" because he went to far to "get things done". Its been done to death, but it is at least an actual character arc and motivation.

73 Very skeptical on this Trump warning to Putin re Ukraine. What's the source? Why are we hearing about it now?

Russia's concerns on Ukraine pre-dated Trump, and the issue was simply building (from the Kremlin's perspective) with every passing year. These concerns weren't based mostly on discrete specific actions, but on the inexorable logic of Ukraine moving to integration (military and economic) with the west.

Talking with China was of course idiotic, and perfect for these non-entities now in power.

Talking seriously with Russia, in Geneva, would have been the obvious smart thing to do. Russia was there specifically to talk about their Ukraine issue.

83 Here is another :
"One video, which was posted on both Facebook and Twitter from an unofficial account supporting Ukraine's armed forces, claims to show the destruction of Russian personnel and equipment in Ukraine, as seen through a drone aircraft's gunsight.
However, it's footage from Syria shot in 2020. The new version sees the image flipped, perhaps in an attempt to prevent verification through reverse___ search tools. "

Which is just a deliberate "fuck you" to America. Russia knows where they are and what they plan to do, and they very likely know what we know about it. There was probably no intelligence value to sending that along to Russia, for either Russia or China.

Unfortunately, Putin is going to double down. Along with demanding that the Ukrainian army overthrow the Ukrainian government, he accused the Ukrainian army of stationing artillery in cities, which is an obvious precursor to mass bombing of those cities.

Russia also threatened Sweden and Finland today if they even thought about joining NATO.

I have a bad feeling about all this...

188 Right now, Brandon is Reassuring the World that not a single sanction he's imposing will even touch Russia's chief (and virtually only) exports, oil and gas. In fact, energy is so off-limits to sanctions that even wood is protected from sanctions.
The reason? Well, thanks to Brandon undoing Trump's work in making the US a net energy exporter, oil is short again, and Europe will not tolerate making energy more expensive.

++++
Will not? Try "can not." Energy is expensive in Europe already. Double or triple that - or cut off vast amounts of available energy altogether and the imposed rationing that would follow - and you run risk of revolt in Europe. They're fucked, and we helped fuck them. And this is particularly hi-fucking-larious in the context of what Brandon said at that marathon press conference he had last month:
... for example, everybody talks about how Russia has control over the energy supply that Europe absorbs. Well, guess what? That - that money that they earn from that makes about 45 percent of the economy. I don't see that as a one-way street. They go ahead and cut it off ... It's not like they have all these wonderful choices out there.

247 I see that Biden's puppet masters waited for war to break out between Russia and Ukraine , and then announced the SCOTUS nominee, an almost cartoonishly-leftist Obama-appointed judge named Ketanji Brown Jackson.

I suppose we're all supposed to "unite behind Biden" on this choice, unless we want to be unmasked as Russian agents.

260 I've read in a couple of articles that there is absolute consternation among many Muscovities. Putin has been in power for twenty years, after all, and people thought they knew something about Putin's decision-making.

Putin has historically been quite cautious - he takes advantage of small opportunities when they present themselves (like Crimea), but launching a WWII-style blitz to conquer forty million people is so far out of character of his prior behavior that one wonders.

He's 69 - maybe he's feeling old, and feels that it's time to roll the dice and cement his legacy.

The consternation is that no one now knows what Putin is capable of - bluntly threatening the United States with nuclear war means that nothing is off the table.

My guess is that the Russians will eventually take Kiev, eastern Ukraine, and the coastal areas before digging in and offering a cease-fire and negotiations. They'll demand complete independence for the two russian-speaking regions, guarantees by Ukraine and NATO that the former will not join the latter, nor receive military aid or training.

Y'know, on the bright side, there's a chance that China is egging the Russians on against the Ukes so that they'll drain assets from the Eastern military districts, giving China a better opportunity to Pearl Harbor the Russians in Siberia and grab the east/central Asian oil fields. The Chinee need oil badly, and they'd prefer to have it within Chinee-controlled territory rather than having to buy it from the Russians.

I mean, the Chinee have been screwing the Russians over on weapons contracts and damned near everything else for 40+ years. The Chinee pretty obviously consider the Russians to be dupes. Escalating it into outright theft of Russian land/resources wouldn't be a stretch.

Y'know, on the bright side, there's a chance that China is egging the Russians on against the Ukes so that they'll drain assets from the Eastern military districts, giving China a better opportunity to Pearl Harbor the Russians in Siberia and grab the east/central Asian oil fields. The Chinee need oil badly, and they'd prefer to have it within Chinee-controlled territory rather than having to buy it from the Russians.

I mean, the Chinee have been screwing the Russians over on weapons contracts and damned near everything else for 40+ years. The Chinee pretty obviously consider the Russians to be dupes. Escalating it into outright theft of Russian land/resources wouldn't be a stretch.

Worst of all was last night when Bret Baier regurgitated the self-evidently false Ukrainian/Pentagon talking points that the Ukranians had slaughtered 800+ Russian soldiers, shot down 15 planes, and were giving the Russians hell, worse than they ever imagined...literally while:

*Russian armor was pouring into Kiev and every other major Ukranian city exactly 24 hours into the invasion,

*An unshaven and t-shirt clad Zelenskyy was hastily posting videos from a bunker begging NATO for a no-fly zone,

*Ukraine was blowing up bridges outside of Kiev, maneuvering MRLs between apartment buildings, banning any fighting age male from leaving the country, encouraging citizens to throw Molotov cocktails at Russian soldiers, and panhandling for $ on GoFundMe.

But, sure, Bret, regale us with the "Ghost of Kiev" fairy tale; assure us our massive taxpayer investment in the Ukraine army hasn't been yet another colossal waste; keep the neocon lies coming!

456 My guess is that the Russians will eventually take Kiev, eastern Ukraine, and the coastal areas before digging in and offering a cease-fire and negotiations. They'll demand complete independence for the two russian-speaking regions, guarantees by Ukraine and NATO that the former will not join the latter, nor receive military aid or training.
Posted by: Colorado Alex in Exile

The Russkies want Ukraine de-militarized. No military whatsoever, and NOT part of NATO.
Zelenskyy was starting to talk about re-arming with nukes, and apparently that was the LAST straw for Putin.
The secret is that this can't go on for TOO long (weeks and weeks), as the Russkie logistics will have a hard time supporting the military efforts for an extended period. Ammo, manpower, etc. Also, I expect their tanks, helicopters, etc. to start having a lot of "breakdowns". They can't sustain this combat tempo.
During the Gulf War (1991), what really surprised the Russkies then was that we sustained the air war tempo for WEEKS.

Instead, I only get the sense that whoever is pulling the strings is at best about 6 months behind Biden cognitively.

No they knew the Russian troops were there. It was in the papers internationally in the days leading up to the invasion. The question is more regarding Ukranian deployments, do they have enough to hold Kiev? Maybe yes, maybe no, we're not getting much information about it.

That's bothersome because there's no military reason for it. If you want to neutralize the ship, drop a team on it and take it over, it's got no defenses. It's just a cargo ship.

A journalist close to the Kremlin has already suggested that Russia could respond to hostile American acts by nuking a DOD facility in very rural Nevada - say, 2,000 dead.

We would doubtless respond by nuking one or two very rural locations in Russia.

Which society do you think would succumb to complete panic if that very limited nuclear exchange took place?

587 Flashback has some other interesting stuff too. It kind of centers around this drug "flashback" that allows you to relive moments. In a crappy dystopia that's really tempting for people that just have a few select moments of happiness in their lives. Then there's a rumor that a highly specialized synthesized version of the drug actually allows you to enter the past cognitively, physically even, maybe, could you change the past and fix all this terrible world? Or do you look to the future and fight for change?

Also, the Japanese tech leaders reform a feudal Japan but are Catholics and are trying to spread the holy empire! Also rods from space. Lots of good scify stuff. It may seem nihilistic at first because of the setting. But it is truly about stoicism, looking to create a better future. And finding what is a good life for you.

Yeah, the time to have a weak, dementia ridden old man as leader of the free world is now, when we've got Putin and Xi licking their lips and putting their bibs on.

We had our own bastard, and he put all of them in their place.

Yeah, when I'm getting a divorce, I want the nicest damned lawyer I can find, one who you'd want to have a beer with, a go-along to get-along type.

****************************

Hate to break it to you, but DeSantis is Bobby Jindal 2.0: a fine governor with an R legislature but can't win a national election. The quicker you fanboys get your heads out of your asses the better for everyone.

DeSantis has zero charisma and would have lost FL to the crackhead Gillum without Trump. DeSantis would be *lucky* to get Romney's numbers in a national election (and he would more likely get McCain's once the media focused on him 24/7 like they do Trump).

Trump, on the other hand, got at least 75 million legit votes with most diverse coalition of any GOP candidate ever DESPITE everything the media, Democrats & GOPe threw at him. They had to actually STOP COUNTING VOTES and took 2 weeks to "find" more ballots in order to "beat" him.

647 Both, but Putin would control Russian society.

Russians have a very different idea of risk than Americans.

On August 24, 2004, two Chechen women smuggled bombs onto two different airplanes flying out of Moscow, and blew them up in flight within ninety minutes of each other, killing 90 people total.

Imagine what would have happened in the United States if that had happened her - the air transport system would have been shut down for days, you would have seen mass cancellation of flight reservations, etc.

In Russia? Nothing. There was an investigation, but no planes stopped flying, people didn't cancel their reservations, and the system continued to function.

Very different culture.

LOL. "Fuck around with me, and I'll shatter the Kremlin. I'll blast 500 years of unique Russian history and culture to flinders."

Maybe it was an empty threat. Maybe it wasn't. But it'll make a guy like Putin attentive, that's for sure.

715 Also, the Japanese tech leaders reform a feudal Japan but are Catholics and are trying to spread the holy empire! Also rods from space. Lots of good scify stuff. It may seem nihilistic at first because of the setting. But it is truly about stoicism, looking to create a better future. And finding what is a good life for you.

I enjoyed it.

717 In a GOT analogy, Trump is Ned stark... honest straightforward guy who moves from his kingdom north down to a den of vipers. He underestimated his enemies' cunning and evil and got beheaded.

718 >>> Trump still thinks the people who stole the election are great guys and he can't wait to put them back into positions of power.
Posted by: Ian S. at February 25, 2022 02:28 PM (ZGrMX)

Trump does have a particular "they're great guys" that means, roughly translated, "f*ck all these guys in particular". And he has a "they're great guys" that means, "they're great guys".

I'm not going to get into the specifics of his hiring screw ups. But he does say things this way. In the first example he'll say that then list all the repugant stuff they did. In the second example, he'll follow with all the good stuff they did. But the preamble is the same. Must be businessman speak.

719 The country was shut down when Trump was President , trillions added to the debt and BLM /ANTIFA was allowed to run free. I'm not looking forward to another Trump term though if that's my choice I'll live with it.

DeSantis has already said he's not gonna run if Trump does, which means he is smart and at least reasonably politically savvy.
Posted by: ... at February 25, 2022 02:30 PM (dscaa)

DeSantis is young, born 1978. He doesn't need to be in any hurry to move up from where he is, he's got lots of time.
Posted by: Tom Servo at February 25, 2022 02:35 PM (trdmm)

Agree. He does more good staying where he is right now. We'll need a strong FL in 2024.

724 Maybe we can elect Elon Musk. He can just buy DC, and kick everybody to the curb. Once he's in he can buy China and sic them on Russia. Owning all the TV rights and copyrights to everybody's name, he'd make his money back in a year.

725 I'm one of the few fans of the Bond movie 'Quantum of Solace' and there's a quote from it relevant for Biden and most of 'Foggy Bottom' critters driving foreign policy-


When you can't tell your friends from your enemies, it's time to go.

726 Looking forward to the 2024 election, I think it will be a rerun of 2016, as the DemonRats realize that ol Cackling Cankles is the best they have.

727 Bravo, Ace!
Once again, your commentary is both brilliantly incisive and downright hilarious.
You had me laughing out loud multiple times.
Favorite bit (among several) was the mock-Trump quote where he threatens Putin that he'll hit Moscow.
I had to take a break and clean up the coffee I spilled while laughing.
Thanks. I think the comic relief is nearly as important as the enlightening insight.

The only rational explanation for that tweet is that he's trying to soften-up the Millenials (who lurves them some Star Wars???) to get all hot-n-horny to die for the Deep State ... er ... Uncle Sam to save Ukraine for Democracy (tm) (or the Big Guy's 10%). Or, he's a complete dolt.

731 The Grand Strategy is for Biden to insert a wedge between Russia and China. But what the Biden Idiots do not understand, is that since Democrats started the new Cold War with Russia/Putin/Trump based on the fraudulent Steele Dossier, Russia and China have become allies.
Biden thinks that just because China paid his son bribes, that he and Xi are pals. But Xi will suck every bit of intelligence from the stupid corrupts.

He's a complete dolt. That was as "How do you do, fellow kids?" a Tweet as possible. It's Dunning-Kruger all the way down. He's an unsophisticated mouthbreathing mental midget LARPing as a brilliant political analyst.
