Biden Trades a Terrorist Gun-Dealer Who Plotted to Kill Americans to Get Back Drug Smoking WNBA Flake; Gives Up Trying to Get Back the Marine Russia's Kept in Prison for Four Years

FIRST TIME ANYONE'S EVER NOTICED A WNBA TRADE
Posted by: Elric Blade

Biden's bragging that he got back a woman who is important to his key constituencies of LGBT Activists and CRT Grievance Stokers and literally no one else:

The Great Diplomat is less forthcoming about the man he's putting on a plane in exchange for this pothead scofflaw.

@stevenportnoy

MORE: To secure Griner's return, Biden has freed arms dealer Viktor Bout. Bout gained infamy as the "Merchant of Death" & was found guilty for conspiring to sell AK-47's that would've been used to kill DEA agents.


Cameron Cawthorne
@Cam_Cawthorne

This is what John Brennan, Obama's deputy national security advisor for homeland security and counterterrorism, said about "Merchant of Death" arms dealer Viktor Bout in 2010.

terroristarmsdealerstatement.jfif

Note that Russia doesn't usually engage in diplomacy to get back its criminal scumbags so that means that this terrorist weapons-dealer who plotted to kill Americans is actually a... wait for it... agent of Putin's government.

He works for Putin. He was doing terrorism for Putin.

And the Sage of Scranton released him for a pothead who can't dunk without a boost.

The idea of someone being so f***ing entitled and stupid that they'd go to a backwards and unfree foreign country and just smuggle in drugs to feed their habit is just... well, people wind up where they wind up for reasons most of the time.

And the Marine Paul Whelan who has been held for four years?

F*** him, BLM and GLAAD never heard of him.

Steven Portnoy
@stevenportnoy

MORE: The swap to see Griner home for Christmas is 1-for-1 & does not involve Ret. Marine Paul Whelan, who is about to mark his 4th year in Russian custody.


Matt Whitlock
@mattdizwhitlock

So we gave up the "merchant of death" who has been involved in plots to kill Americans

And we got the famous basketball player that a lot of celebrities lobbied for but not the marine who has been captive for 4 years.

And they're going to treat this like a major win.

Whelan is being held for (allegedly) spying -- which would be a more even trade for a TERRORIST ARMS DEALER.

But nah, trade the terrorist arms dealer for the woman that Elizabeth Warren has a poster of in her bedroom.

The clapping seal media is pleased as punch, obviously:


Can't wait to see David French praise the cool steady hand of Scranton Joe later.

Ah yes: The elections.

He wouldn't make this wretched "deal" before the elections.

Only after the elections, when, as Obama once said, he had more room to be flexible.

This was inevitable. As soon as the elections were over, naturally. I actually thought it was going to be WORSE than just a one-for-one for the Death Dealer. I thought Putin would get even more in exchange for this creepy useless twat that 80% of the USA utterly despises. Over-under on how soon she's back to shitting on the USA? 48 hours? 24?

It's so very typical that it disgusts me that not only am I not surprised, I probably could have predicted it if I'd even thought about it prior to this. A prisoner exchange *at all* for Griner is appalling and it never even crossed my mind. It isn't surprising, I just never would have thought of it.

with one saying the U.S. had was ‘a choice between bringing home one particular American — Brittney Griner — or bringing home none.’”

114 If ever we'd needed more proof about how this administration is just filled with pieces of crap.

So Russia gets everything it wants, and we get a drug addict, seems like Biden just used this as an excuse to give Putin what he wanted, probably using Griner as cover, as the real reason this terrorist was released was one of those payoffs Putin laundered through Hunter.

A hope would be Republicans would grow a pair and investigate why Biden gave up so much for so little in return, as just lies about Russians paying to have Americans killed was something Trump was going to get impeached for, but now Biden is freeing someone who actually tried to get Americans killed.

244 Oh man....the mental gymnastics at DU over this trade are amazing.

an important question. Could we have insisted on more? I doubt it. I see this as a negotiation success. The way I see it is that Viktor Bout is disposable to Putin; as bizarre as it seems I don't think Viktor Bout is as important to Russia as Brittney Griner is to the USA.

Because we are the USA. Our people are not supposed to be disposable. That's not the same in Russia. Viktor Bout is not so important to a dictator; Putin can easily get himself a new arms dealer.

Doesn't matter that she's an NBA star or famous. She might as well have been a tourist... we're supposed to cherish our citizens.


Those are citizens we don't "cherish" Russia got their arms merchant back, and may be able to get their hands on more sophisticated weapons with which to kill Ukrainians.

But I love this "we're supposed to cherish our citizens". Ummm.. I don't "cherish" them all in this country, let alone ones I see abroad who act as if being an American is an exemption from acting like a decent human.

I read a recent article about her which included a an interview she did a while back in which she talks about growing up , she started playing basketball to fight back against the kids who always made fun of her looks and out of norm height. This was twenty plus years ago before tranny became a thing. I think she has some kind of genetic defect that resulted in the height and lean masculine body. It also explains the stupid need to cover herself in tats and the lesbianism.

You act like that's possible. A governor of Florida or Texas can't just go and arrest Biden, or any government individual, and even most AGs are kept from investing members of the federal government, especially since none of these crimes are within their jurisdiction.

You can mock the ineffectiveness of panels and investigations, but that's all Republicans can do now. To have some moronic idea that DeSantis can just send a local FL sheriff to arrest Biden, and then try to act like everyone else is just being weak for thinking otherwise, is the stupidity that causes Republicans to constantly snatch defeat from the hands of victory.

352 More seriously -

The real problem with Russia is not "collusion," or Ukraine, but their obsession with fucking around with other countries internal issues. Since the start of Soviet times they have spent a lot of effort trying to destroy societies around the world.
This is the nugget of truth behind the election interference claims -- they did interfere, but only to cause division and a discontent population that made life worse for Americans. (They clearly preferred Clinton.)

Most of their current influence operations are economically targeted such as anti GMO, or anti Fracking in Europe. Much is military in SA and Africa.

This trade only supports that effort - they see this guy as a patriot to the Russian cause of destroying all the world's nations. And biden helped that effort.

Let that sink in, because the Commandant has no self awareness.

I've never seen the original film. Aren't the natives, like, hunter-gatherers? There'd be trade, and infrastructure might consist of huts or whatever the natives live in. And if they were human HGs, there'd be raids on other tribes, limited war, and other entertainments.

And sits in piles in a police warehouse,
My enemy's much-prized effort sits in piles
In the kind of bookshop where remaindering occurs.
Great, square stacks of rejected books and, between them, aisles
One passes down reflecting on life's vanities,
Pausing to remember all those thoughtful reviews
Lavished to no avail upon one's enemy's book --
For behold, here is that book
Among these ranks and banks of duds,
These ponderous and seeminly irreducible cairns
Of complete stiffs.

To clarify, he is an Army colonel. He's set all his accounts to private, thank God. It was really bad. He had posted a "retirement" photo, framed like an official photo with the U.S. flag in the back, of himself in his dress uniform (the pinks and greens that were recently brought back) announcing that he was now retired after almost 30 years in the Army. I suspect he has now discovered that he wasn't quite "fully retired" and free from Army.

Normally I would agree. After the last election, I don't. Either people voted against their own self interests or the process is rigged. Every single statistic and outcome in history was defied in the last two elections. People are poorer and less free, crime and insecurity are rising, and it's demonstrable. The situation isnt getting better. Yet Democrats still won. I don't care how they did it, they did. The GOP has done almost zero to fight back and they leave people like McConnell and McDaniel as what passes for leadership. They are weak, feckless cowards who don't fight for anything except what their donors want. So there is no help on the horizon, we're on our own and captured by a soft coup determined to lead to our destruction. Their supporters don't care as long as the fire is trained on us. When they do it will be too late.

453 To clarify, he is an Army colonel. He's set all his accounts to private, thank God. It was really bad. He had posted a "retirement" photo, framed like an official photo with the U.S. flag in the back, of himself in his dress uniform (the pinks and greens that were recently brought back) announcing that he was now retired after almost 30 years in the Army. I suspect he has now discovered that he wasn't quite "fully retired" and free from Army.

He was first, but two others replied to his post. One of them was the Marine I mentioned.

So yes, the real takeaway is that there were 3 active-duty military who are into gay kink, not just regular old buttsecks. And they wonder why recruiting is catastrophic.

471 When they have access to unlimited money (ours), that change is going to take a very long time.
Posted by: DaisyB

They don't. Essentially about 1/3 of all spending now is borrowing and interest on the federal debt has now equals the size of the defense budget. Eventually, you either have to end the borrowing, raise taxes vastly including on the wealthy, and cut spending. All of those moves piss people off pretty badly.

All that Dem spending is essentially going on Uncle Sam's charge card and at an increasingly unsustainable rate. So the Fed can either put inflation into hyperdrive, raise interest rates enough to cause a default in US paying foreign debt by bankrupting the government, and/or destroy the US reserve currency status.

We are out of good options and financial crises this bad normally take over a decade to resolve itself. Best to start prepping now if you have not already.

Depends on what you mean by better. The usual response in many countries and historically is the entrance of a strong man to repress the elites. Another response is external war which collapses the state and takes the elites with it resulting in anarchy for a while. Still yet another option is try to repress the populace which causes unrest from the level of Northern Ireland to complete disintegration of the state's ruling regime via civil war, secession, or some other such.

476 There's one simple thing that seems to be overlooked in the handwringing over. Griner: She did it.

This is not someone arrested erroneously or on fabricated charges or due to some State pressure campaign. Griner went to Russia with weed in her possession, knowing they don't allow weed.

But the victory lap Biden is taking here is reminiscent of the Bowe Bergdahl Rose Garden ceremony, where Obama expected to be showered with praise -- for retrieving a deserter in exchange for Gitmo terrorists.

Tone-deaf doesn't begin to describe it.

Posted by: red speck at December 08, 2022 01:14 PM (gS3OW)

477 The underlying facts of the Griner story are even more telling as to the present (decomposed) state of the Republic.

The Rooskies have huge sentences for simple "possession" on the books for the same reason we have arcane rules on what constitutes insider trading, FARA registration, tax evasion, fibbing to the Fibbies and trespassing in the Capitol.

It makes it "legal" when they bring the hammer down on their enemies, because: "Look its following a law on the books!"

H. Beam Piper already did that and gave us Fuzzy Sapiens.
Posted by: Anna Puma at December 08, 2022 12:54 PM (8EJMD)

Piper just mentioned the mystery of why the Fuzzies were dependent on an element so rare on Zarathustra in Fuzzy Sap IIRC. One or two of the "non-Piper" Fuzzy books expanded that into a full XT origin and idea - Fuzzy Bones and Golden Dream.

Piper's third Fuzzy Novel released a few decades after his death has few to zero mentions of this thread, so the successor authors might have been going rogue. Pournelle did have some contact with HBP so might have had a different idea that led to the plot path taken.

In his Future History Piper wasn't afraid of other now wild notions - His Martian origin of Homo Sapiens, the Freyans - human but prettier, and interfertile wasn't explained by him (though successor authors postulated a second Mars colony ship that somehow gets to the stars then fails).

Some Piper stuff is available on Kindle/Audiobooks but not all I don't think. Only some parts seem public domain or republished
