More rhetoric than reality.
Exactly so, and of course, the corporate media and bluechecks are praising God (well, if they believed in God) that Joe Biden saved the day. Because you know, the LAST President would have given it all away to Russia.
Let's Go Brandon!
You would have to be totally brain dead to believe the legacy media that this is big scary Russia, Russia, Russia and dapper Joe has just saved the world from WWIII. But alas, we've just spent two years with most of the world believing a piece of cloth would save them from a virus.
Gotta hand it to Brandon. He is manipulative scum. You can see where his crackhead son gets it from.
Step 1: create crisis
Step 2: nap
Step 3: "fix" crisis
Step 4: profit
And people say Biden is going senile, that plan was genius!
This whole thing was ridiculous from the start. It felt a lot like the start of the c-virus, when Italy wasn't saying "from" just "with" and everyone dying there looked 100. At this point, these people can say whatever they want, the MSM breathlessly hypes it, and voila! Crisis! What's shocking is how many people still listen and believe
Kinda like taking credit for a manufactured "pandemic".
Yea, the mainstream media is pushing for Biden’s first public relations win with US citizens by playing up evil, EVIL VLAD and our courageous and dashing (doddering) President. Even the Daily Wire (home base for the neocon movement) warned of an imminent cyber attack by Putin on the US. Sadly, if there was a cyber attack on the US it is just as likely to be fomented by our own CIA as the next pandemic level crisis and power grab.
This is like when the FBI tries to frame a dissident group as some sort of "terror group", but nobody believes them and the story vanishes into the ether. This is the international relations version.
This whole ruckus may be engineered and pushed in order to weaken US influence and benefit Davos party: https://tomluongo.me/2022/02/14/will-lagarde-ecb-survive-inflection-point-geopolitics/
"Though Russia has in recent years annexed parts of Ukraine"
This is categorically dumb. The only "annexation" was of Crimea, a territory that was Russian for 400 years and only re-assigned to Ukraine on paper by Khrushchev. In 1990, they tried to hold a referendum in Crimea for independence but it was blocked. In 2014, they held another referendum and declared their independence. They then joined Russia. Not a fucking annexation.
Meanwhile, Lviv was annexed by Ukraine from Poland at the same time, and not a word out of your greasy mouth. Chernitvsi was annexed by Ukraine from Romania. Oops, you never even heard of these places.
Interestingly, the only time Putin HASN'T been aggressive in the past 10 years was during the TRUMP administration...
"Stopping"? All Brandon did was read a few lines from a note.
Don't think that Putin doesn't know what Joe was up to and wasn't going to give him the boost in the polls he was seeking.
Just like a low budget grade B movie. They need better script writers unless they intended it to be a parody which doesn't seem to be the case. To not see through this requires wearing those special Party goggles and/or guzzling BSMSM kool aid.
