As if stumbling, bumbling and bombing their way through Russian allied Syria wasn’t bad enough, the Biden-Harris regime has found a new way to get Putin all nice and pissed off. Tuesday the Whitehouse escalated tensions with America’s second most dangerous geo-political foe by imposing sanctions on 7 high-ranking Russian officials and 14 entities. This move comes in response to the novichok poisoning of opposition leader Alexei Navalny.
Biden Press Secretary Jen Psaki told the Press,
“It was not meant to be a silver bullet or an ending to what has been a difficult relationship with Russia. We expect the relationship to continue to be a challenge. We’re prepared for that and we’re neither seeking to reset our relations with Russia nor are we seeking to escalate.”
Secretary of State Antony Blinken stated via Twitter,
“Today, the U.S. imposed sanctions on Russia for attempting to assassinate Aleksey Navalny with a novichok nerve agent. Any use of chemical weapons is unacceptable. We stand with our EU and UK partners to counter Russia’s actions and in calling for Mr. Navalny’s release.”
Putin’s Government Responds, Yup they’re Pissed
Maria Zakharova, the Russian foreign ministry Director of the Information, released a statement late Tuesday, according to Reuters responding to the inelegant (putting it mildly) move by Biden,
“All this is just an excuse to continue overt interference in our internal affairs,”
“We do not intend to put up with this. We will respond based on the principle of reciprocity, but not necessarily symmetrically.”
“Irrespective of America’s ‘sanctions addiction’, we will continue to consistently and decisively defend our national interests, rebuffing any aggression.
We urge our colleagues not to play with fire,” said Zakharova.
This Russian Embassy in Washington, DC retweeted the Russian Foreign Ministry,
💬 #Zakharova We call on the @StateDept team to stop trying to interfere in other countries’ domestic affairs not just in word but in deed. Without considering and respecting its partners’ interests, these noble causes will remain simple declarations pic.twitter.com/NYLGt1EkQg

Via twitter the Russian spokeswoman continued,
“We share #Washington’s intention to build a more stable and inclusive global economic system. It is too bad #US has neglected to specify how #American sanctions introduced against various countries, including #Russia, correspond with this.”
America-First Diplomacy Vs. Obama-Biden Interventionism
President Trump set the definition of America-First Diplomacy in hi speech at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington, DC in 2016. Trump said,
“We desire to live peacefully and in friendship with Russia and China. We have serious differences with these two nations, and must regard them with open eyes, but we are not bound to be adversaries. We should seek common ground based on shared interests.
Russia, for instance, has also seen the horror of Islamic terrorism. I believe an easing of tensions, and improved relations with Russia from a position of strength only is possible, absolutely possible. Common sense says this cycle, this horrible cycle of hostility must end and ideally will end soon. Good for both countries.
Some say the Russians won’t be reasonable. I intend to find out. If we can’t make a deal under my administration, a deal that’s great — not good, great — for America, but also good for Russia, then we will quickly walk from the table. It’s as simple as that. We’re going to find out.”
The Biden-Harris, Democratic-Socialist cult has pivoted panickily to undo everything President Trump did, from immigration to foreign policy regardless of the quantifiable benefits the American people have seen and the rich rewards ending wholesale American interventionism has yielded. The Abraham Accords are often touted as the greatest diplomatic success of the four decades, let alone four years. The move of the US Embassy to Jerusalem send a clear message to the entire world: this wasn’t your Daddy’s American diplomacy.
Trump started out by telling us, “It’s time to shake the rust off America’s foreign policy. It’s time to invite new voices and new visions into the fold, something we have to do. The direction I will outline today will also return us to a timeless principle. My foreign policy will always put the interests of the American people and American security above all else. It has to be first. Has to be.”
Biden promised a return to globalism and United Nations domination “we’ve moved quickly to begin restoring American engagement internationally and earn back our leadership position, to catalyze global action on shared challenges.”
- The new regime immediately bowed to international pressure and rejoined the Paris Climate Agreement.
- Despite their massive coercion and infiltration by China they rejoined the World Health Organization.
- “Defense Secretary Austin will be leading a Global Posture Review of our forces so that our military footprint is appropriately aligned with our foreign policy and national security priorities. ” In other words, they are planning to roll American troops back onto foreign battlefields.
- “we’ll be stopping any planned troop withdrawals from Germany.” No more troop withdrawals, and why?
- “We’re also stepping up our diplomacy to end the war in Yemen — a war which has created a humanitarian and strategic catastrophe.” They’re already talking about re-occupying Syria. Guess who’s next?
- Furthermore, they’re taking in refugees again to facilitate the export of Islamist Extremism to American shores. They plan to “raise the refugee admissions back up to 125,000 persons for the first full fiscal year of the Biden-Harris administration. “
American patriots don’t mind when foreign leaders get pissed off at us. We care when its’ done stupidly, needlessly or dishonestly.
To any objective view, the hyper-interventionist opportunist Biden, is marrying Democratic-Socialist narratives to profit driven military adventurism in a way that would make Dick Cheney blush, or at least his RINO daughter who seems entirely on-board with it. Biden is counting on the assumption that Moscow and Beijing won’t call his bluff, and that main street America will continue to allow it. He’s wrong on all three points.
