Biden apparently decided that yet another executive order was a great way to close out the week. Too bad this particular executive order is a tad incendiary from a foreign relations perspective.
Just consider an excerpt from the letter that Congress recently received from the White House.
“[Biden issued] an Executive Order declaring a national emergency with respect to the unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security, foreign policy, and economy of the United States posed by specified harmful foreign activities of the Government of the Russian Federation.” [Source: Fox News]
Given that Biden recently referred to Putin as a “killer” (and the fake news media says Trump failed at diplomacy?), it is a bit unsurprising that an executive order has shortly followed his proclamation.
What is surprising, however, is the reasoning provided by Antony Blinken, the Secretary of State, for Biden’s executive order.
“Today, we announced actions to hold the Russian Government to account for the SolarWinds intrusion, reports of bounties on U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan, and attempts to interfere in the 2020 U.S. elections.” [Source: Fox News]
One would think that Blinken (or Biden) would have mentioned Ukraine specifically, but apparently the near-endless references to Russia’s presumed “attempts to interfere in the 2020 U.S. elections” must take precedence over all.
Why on earth would Russia do that in 2020, when Biden is clearly the weak, woke leader that presents a massive political boon to Putin? Besides, all Putin had to do was stand to the side while the Democrats, along with social media and fake news media, stole the election anyway.
Moreover, Biden has been in office all of a few months, yet he decides his most important priorities are transgender teenagers, illegal migrants, and any other woke agenda shoved in his face.
Little wonder Putin decided to initiate a buildup of forces in Ukraine shortly after Biden’s inauguration.
This buildup is precisely the type of activity that other nations can collectively oppose, which is evident from several nations’ joint, recently released statement.
Several G-7 foreign ministers, including France, Japan, Italy, Germany, Canada, the United States, and the United Kingdom recently condemned the buildup of Russian forces on the Ukrainian border.
“These large-scale troop movements, without prior notification, represent threatening and destabilising activities … We call on Russia to cease its provocations and to immediately de-escalate tensions in line with its international obligations.” [Source: Politico]
Needless to say, the Russian buildup on the Ukrainian border is another lasting fiasco from the Obama administration, given that Obama famously did nothing after Putin annexed Crimea. As usual, even back in 2014, Obama issued typically grandiose statements with absolutely zero teeth.
“We’re making it clear that there are consequences for their actions.” [Source: Fox News]
Considering Russia still controls Crimea and is now building up additional forces with Obama 2.0 (i.e., Harris-Biden), it is fairly clear that Putin was unimpressed by the “consequences” Obama gravely warned about.
Which several experts recognized immediately as soon as Obama began flapping his mouth, considering the “consequences” were typically tepid sanctions that fail to achieve anything resolute.
For instance, Michael Singh, a representative of the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, observed in 2014 that Obama’s actions, or lack thereof, were highly unlikely to impress Putin.
“It’s unlikely that these will really get President Putin’s attention … Maybe the time for this sort of first step was several weeks ago.” [Source: Fox News]
Maybe such a weak, inexperienced politician should have never been in charge of the United States, considering he was elected for one reason and one reason only (hint, it pertains to surface, as always).
Moreover, Obama never followed through on any other aggressive steps, though Putin appeared to back off from Ukraine during Trump’s tenure.
Now, however, Americans are trapped in a trajectory wielded by the rather unconvincing hand of Biden, who has not exactly shown resolute strength in the face of potentially destabilizing world events.
After all, what is Biden’s primary mode of attack? You guessed it … yet more sanctions. As in, straight out of Obama’s weak playbook.
Because those were so effective when Obama initiated sanctions over Crimea (given that Russia still controls Crimea, it is safe to say Putin was unimpressed by Obama’s weak response).
One can only hope that world wars do not commence under Biden, especially when the vast majority of younger Americans do not exactly boast the same characteristics of the “Great Generation, “ who won the war and loved the United States …
Two actions that seem utterly out of alignment with today’s woke, social media-addicted, perpetually offended snowflakes.
They can’t even handle “microaggressions,” never mind real aggressions … Too bad for them (and the Democrats) that the world generally could care less about hurting people, period, much less about hurting feelings …
