Psaki Says the Quiet Part Out Loud: Biden ‘was Vice President the Last Time Russia Invaded Ukraine. This is a pattern”‘

Psaki Says the Quiet Part Out Loud: Biden ‘was Vice President the Last Time Russia Invaded Ukraine. This is a pattern”‘

Yes, it’s quite a pattern, Psaki. Quite a pattern indeed!

Press Secretary Jen Psaki admitted on live TV that Putin makes his moves when we have weaklings in the Executive Office.

“You know I was at the State Department,” Psaki told CNN. “The president was the vice president the last time Russia invaded Ukraine. This is a pattern of horror from President Putin and from the cronies around him.”

Oh, sweet summer child. A lot of us remember. A lot of us remember you as the State Department’s press secretary. A lot of us remember Obama putting Biden in charge of America’s role in helping Ukraine weed out corruption.

A lot of us remember Biden’s angelic son Hunter sitting on the Burisma board during that time.

We remember this delightful photo of you with Putin’s Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov. Pink is not a flattering color on you, Psaki. Same for me as well.

Lavrov is one of those cronies.

Russia invaded eastern Ukraine and set up troops on the border. Russia annexed Crimea with a sham referendum. A few of us have never forgotten what happened in 2014. A few of us continued to read about Ukraine’s fight against Russia since 2014.

This is one thing I hate about culture. No attention span. When something becomes static it loses its luster so the mainstream media drops it to the bottom of the barrel.

The media doing that allows people like Biden and Psaki to act like Russia’s invasion of Ukraine is all brand new and happening because of Trump.

Key points again:

  • Russia has been in Ukraine’s Donbas Region since 2014.
  • Russia annexed, not occupied, ANNEXED Crimea from Ukraine in 2014.
  • The Donbas region has been in hell since 2014 with fights between separatists using Russian equipment against Ukrainian troops.

Russia’s invasion of Ukraine began under Obama when Biden served as vice president. Do not ever forget that fact.

Nice puski hat, Jen.

I wouldn’t piss on putin if he was on fire, but the Azov Battalion and the corrupt Ukranian government that funds them makes both sides bad guys in my eyes.

Either the Ukranians ethnically cleanse the territories like Crimea, and Donbass, of all Russians who invaded(?) during the Soviet era 70-100 years ago, or, you give those areas autonomy and they decide by popular vote to become part of Russia.

I’m not into ethnic cleansing. And I hate to reward mass migration with political power. So both sides can suck eggs as far as I care.

    I have a local constitutionalist friend who has a Russian wife, lots of in-laws in eastern Ukraine, and (until recently) visited there regularly. He reports that prior to the Crimean “annexation,” the Crimean citizens were under constant martial attack from “their own” government in Kiev (the neo-Nazi faction under Parubiy) because they were majority Russian speakers (speaking Russian was actually prohibited by law in Ukraine). They held an actual election, voting 90% to secede from Ukraine and join Russia. Russia did not unilaterally “invade” or “annex” them. Prior to the current incursion, the Donbass region was experiencing similar levels of attack from “their own” government.
    Among both governments, there are no good actors here.

      Milhouse in reply to henrybowman. | March 2, 2022 at 8:29 pm

      Oh, but our government and our news industry have repeatedly assured us that the Crimean referendum was fraudulent. Didn’t you believe them?

      (I will note, however, that the referendum was held after the Russian invasion; it was impossible to hold it before. So yes, it is legitimate to question its legitimacy; but not to just dismiss it conclusorily (is that a word?) as our betters told us to.)

      Fatkins in reply to henrybowman. | March 2, 2022 at 8:52 pm

      Parubiy never held position as president, also speaking Russian was never illegal it was made compulsory for public servants to be able to speak Ukrainian.

      Im not really sure what you mean by martial attack?

      With respect i think you’ve been fed a line

        henrybowman in reply to Fatkins. | March 7, 2022 at 7:19 pm

        It’s widely reported, by sources I trust more than you, that speaking Russian was made a crime. It certainly was made a de facto crime, given that officials beat and even shoot people for speaking it.
        Martial is an English word. Look it up.
        Also, I never said Parubiy was president. I said he led a faction.
        Are you really such a dimbulb, or do you just enjoy being mindlessly contrary?

    claytoncramer in reply to jhkrischel. | March 3, 2022 at 10:03 am

    So which government is more corrupt: Ukraine or Putin’s oligarchic kleptocracy?

Pink is not a flattering color on you, Psaki.

Perhaps if she wore burlap? In the form of a sack?

    henrybowman in reply to MrE. | March 2, 2022 at 7:54 pm

    I have to disagree. I think that hot pink is both flattering and appropriate for Psaki. Much for the same reason that flashing red is appropriate for a disaster area in progress.

The stage has been set for his ouster. Here comes a real Obama stooge, and totally unelected bot gosh! How stunning and brave of Biden to gift America with our first African-American female President.

    alaskabob in reply to scooterjay. | March 2, 2022 at 2:24 pm

    With Hillary as VP to “stabilize” the regime… and then something happens to Kamala. It would be easier to do this now… Biden goes, Hillary comes, and Kamala goes SCOTUS. That Overton Window is closing soon.

    artichoke in reply to scooterjay. | March 3, 2022 at 4:44 pm

    I don’t think they can push him out now, but if they do, it will only be because he didn’t do what Obama and Kamala wanted anyway. He’s better than Kamala. He had to promise to quit, remember he said before the election that he would quit at the first disagreement. Well he didn’t and has been freezing Kamala out.

    Judge Biden by the results. Russia in Ukraine? Probably coming no matter what. But Build Back Better failed, corporate vax mandates failed in SCOTUS, etc. His first year could have been a lot worse, and I give him credit that it wasn’t. It doesn’t really matter if it was intentional or unintentional, and I don’t assume it was unintentional.

Biden was VP last time Russia invaded Ukraine. I suppose Pres. Obama honored Ukainian guests at SOTU that year.

Kamala is VP this time. Pres. Biden honors Ukrainain guests at SOTU.

Hillary will be VP next year and Kamala will honor Ukrainian guests at that SOTU.

This cycle continues to repeat like incarnation of cows in India.

    artichoke in reply to Peabody. | March 3, 2022 at 4:40 pm

    “Hillary will be VP next year and Kamala will honor Ukrainian guests at that SOTU.”

    Oh boy, I sure hope not.

The words of the bitchy strawberry teenager go in one ear and out the other.

Folks, I predicted Biden’s election would lead to war, and it sure has.

We need to begin the demands for him to resign. Then, let the GOP Congress in 2023 (if they don’t blow it) investigate Biden and his family’s treason. And Pelosi’s. And Kerry’s. And Obama’s. And Clinton’s.

Here is the real reason Putin invaded during Bidens term, Trump as president was achieving all the goals Putin wanted. Weakening the NATO alliance, the west and democratic values.

    Milhouse in reply to Fatkins. | March 2, 2022 at 4:19 pm

    What the actual hell are you on about? What color is the sky on your planet? In this universe the exact opposite happened, and everyone could see it.

      He’s a troll, what do you expect?

      Fatkins in reply to Milhouse. | March 2, 2022 at 5:59 pm

      With respect Milhouse, Trump spent years undermining NATO, being anti democratic, attempted to prevent military aid to Ukraine etc. He was a gift to Putin. Trump had a long record of comment on those issues.. That is a matter of record as opposed to the idea of Biden being so weak that Putin thought he could invade – that is speculation and a typical right wing talking point without any foundation.

        navyvet in reply to Fatkins. | March 2, 2022 at 6:56 pm

        I believe the “foundation” is: Biden is in office and Putin has invaded. No speculation required.

        Milhouse in reply to Fatkins. | March 2, 2022 at 7:00 pm

        With no respect whatsoever, you are full of shit. Everything you wrote is the exact opposite of what happened in front of all of our eyes, just a few years ago. We’re all so old we remember it happening, so you can’t tell us the opposite happened and expect to get away with it.

          Fatkins in reply to Milhouse. | March 2, 2022 at 8:28 pm

          Errr rigght:

          Trump threatened to leave NATO
          Removed troops from the eastern European border
          Claimed NATO was obsolete
          Claimed the 2020 election would be fraudulent in advance of the election
          Claimed the election was fraudulent even though his own internal advise was there was no evidence of fraud
          Has continued to claim fraud despite of the total lack of evidence, losses of numerous court cases
          Attempted to carry out election fraud by engineering fraudulent election slates, where the alternate slates not only sent in the electoral votes but pretended to be the legal electors
          Delayed supplies to the Ukraine while pressuring Ukraine for political materials
          Sent love letters to the NK dictator
          Expressed his admiration for Putins ‘smarts’ on a number of occasions.

          Its well documented that Trump didn’t like NATO, loves dictators and has undermined American democracy. That’s just fact and no amount of wishful thinking on your part can change that. If you cant acknowledge the reality of the situation, not my problem.

          Milhouse in reply to Milhouse. | March 2, 2022 at 8:53 pm

          OMG I don’t even know where to start. This is like Superman’s Bizarro World.

          Trump strengthened NATO by insisting that its members make good on their obligations to it. The days when they could spend their money on nice things for themselves and leave us to defend their existence were finally over and he told them so and made them believe it. That was completely right and proper and it’s a shame that previous presidents had not done the same.

          As for the 2020 election, he said in advance that there was going to be massive fraud because it was obviously true, and there was no point in pretending that it might not happen and only complaining after the event. He only said what Republicans have been saying for decades — that to win they must overcome the margin of fraud. And in 2020 that margin increased dramatically.

          Oh, this one’s rich: “Delayed supplies to the Ukraine while pressuring Ukraine for political materials”. Those would be the supplies that 0bama and Biden point-blank refused to supply at all. Apparently that was just fine, but when Trump delayed them by a short while, for good and legitimate reasons, that was somehow a capital crime. And what he wanted was not “political materials” but evidence of a crime. The Ukraine had that evidence, if it existed, and it was entirely legitimate for Trump to ask Zelensky to hand it over.

          Far more legitimate than Biden boasting of blackmailing the Ukranians into firing the prosecutor who was about to investigate the criminals who were, just coincidentally, paying Hunter Biden to protect them from precisely such an occurrence. Funny how that worked out, isn’t it.

          Fatkins in reply to Milhouse. | March 2, 2022 at 9:16 pm

          Problematic to say the least.

          Para 1: How did that go exactly, no increase in spending in Europe and European leader thought him to be an idiot.

          Para 2: Obviously true eh, not according to anyone with knowledge of elections. His own advisers stated the election was the most secure ever. The heritage foundation has found circa 1200 cases over the course of 20 years. Your case for there being an issue with fraud is a total joke.

          Para 3: He refused aid on the pretext of wanting a political favor it wasn’t for good and legitimate reasons at all – it was purely to try and find material to smear a political rival. A plain reading of the phone call illustrates that. If it had been a legitimate reason he would not have frozen the transfer of military materials. If he had been genuine he wouldn’t have had strings attached that directly related to the defensibility of Ukraine, its naïve to think otherwise.

          As for Obama actually your facts are wrong he sent circa $200m worth of military assistance including UAV’s, counter mortar radars, humvees, and other supplies.

          Para 4: Oh the irony, one of the reasons why the prosecutor was being fired was precisely because he wasn’t investigating the founder of Burismo. Shokins successor confirmed that no issues were found in relation to Hunter Biden who did actually investigate Burismo! You might want to check your facts.

          I note you avoid addressing the documented and evidenced Republican fraud in the 2020 election. So far only Republicans have been convicted of fraud in relation to the 2020 election.

          Milhouse in reply to Milhouse. | March 2, 2022 at 11:41 pm

          Your lies are so transparent. Everything you wrote is a clear lie. We were all there, remember. We remember what happened, and we know that it was nothing like your prattling. So we’re done here.

          Heh, I was about to respond at some length, but you know what, if even Milhouse thinks you (Fat) not worth the bother, I’m not going to spend my time on it, either. Thanks, Milhouse! 🙂

          Fatkins in reply to Milhouse. | March 6, 2022 at 3:49 am

          Apologies for the late response , LI was preventing commenting on a temporary basis.

          With respect I can actually source all my claims. You not so much. The very fact you’ve ignored many aspects of what I’ve stated is strongly suggestive that you don’t have an argument. Merely asserting something isn’t really good enough. Even some basic research into the points would indicate how incorrect you are.

          I would respond in more detail but LI doesn’t like long lists of sources.

        Ironclaw in reply to Fatkins. | March 2, 2022 at 7:14 pm

        They why wouldn’t Putin make his move then, retard? After all, that would be an incentive for him to know nothing would come of it. However, that’s not what happened, Putin sat on his hands because he damn well knew there would be real and immediate costs to do otherwise.

          Fatkins in reply to Ironclaw. | March 2, 2022 at 8:32 pm

          Retard eh, says the person who couldn’t even read the content of the comment to understand the point being made.

          Let me clarify Putin didn’t invade because Trump was achieving the goals he wanted without needing to take the risk of invading. And oh look there have been real costs to Putin invading , from Biden not Trump who has conveniently changed his tune regarding NATO, funny that.

          Ironclaw in reply to Ironclaw. | March 2, 2022 at 11:30 pm

          I’m saying, retard, that you are wrong and that what you’re saying makes absolutely no sense. If it was as you say, it would have been in inducement for Putin to move while “his guy” was in office. Instead, Putin waited until “his pedophile” illegitmately got into office.

          Fatkins in reply to Ironclaw. | March 6, 2022 at 3:56 pm

          I’ve just given you a reason, if that’s being your comprehension not my problem.

        What are you talking about, Fatkins?

        You sound like Jen Psaki. Or the Washington Post.

        Cite ONE authority for your ridiculous assertion.

          I’ve already referred to documented speech from Trump earlier with respect to his position on NATO, his anti democratic stance on American democracy and generally being a dictator loving idiot.

        claytoncramer in reply to Fatkins. | March 3, 2022 at 10:05 am

        I keep reading that Trump sent 2000 Javelins there. And was all this improvement to Ukrainian forces performed since Biden was elected?

    Ironclaw in reply to Fatkins. | March 2, 2022 at 7:12 pm

    I don’t understand your retardation, but I have a grudging respect for your dedication to it.

    artichoke in reply to Fatkins. | March 3, 2022 at 4:38 pm

    Democratic values is when USA pays and pays for NATO and they only have to hint they may do better someday? Maybe so, but they’re also stupid values.

      Fatkins in reply to artichoke. | March 6, 2022 at 5:35 pm

      It’s democratic in the sense that each country decides what budget to put forward. The reality is Europeans have decided to spend their money not on arms but nice things like free at service health care or even universal health care, an annual allowance for holiday, child care etc etc seems perfectly fair. The real question is how does the US afford to give it’s citizens nice things without messing up it’s strategic goals. The answer according to the right is that Americans can’t have nice things but hey

Obama, Biden, McCain’s “Slavic Spring” is progressing with the same violence and dysfunction as his “Arab Spring”. That said, Kiev had 32 trimesters to reconcile and offer remediation following a violent Western-backed coup. Biden-closet (e.g. influence peddling, agitation to violence) is irreconcilable foreign, domestic, and familial collusion with “benefits”. One step forward, two steps backward.

Next stop the annexation of Tibet, the violently disputed border territories. Xi with practical and actual slavery and diversity (e.g. racism, sexism), environmental arbitrage for laundered, Green, environmentally catastrophic solutions, and the Pro-Choice religion from one-child (State’s Choice) to selective-child (her Choice) and beyond.

Perhaps political prisoners denied civil rights, too.

    artichoke in reply to n.n. | March 3, 2022 at 2:04 pm

    China has moved beyond one-child. They used to criminalize the aborting of girl babies under one-child although it was done anyway. While there are echoes with our own abortion industry, there are significant differences, and I don’t see Chinese influence as a big driver of it.

    The political prisoners in DC jail have been denied many civil rights.

    I see Obama and Biden as opposites regarding Ukraine. Perhaps because Biden’s dirty laundry was exposed, he’s no longer obviously blackmailable. He’s the one who is not rushing to pick the Ukraine side, in a war between countries we claimed to be neutral toward. Obama didn’t like Biden, said Biden “fucked things up”.

    If Biden is gone and we get Harris (they obviously hate each other too), then we’ll get the Obama agenda again, right up the gut.

Yeah, it’s a pattern of weakness. Notice which four years they DIDN”T DARE pull any of this crap?

    jb4 in reply to Ironclaw. | March 2, 2022 at 8:36 pm

    ….. and whose administration got the slackers to pony up their NATO contributions. Once Biden’s character and competence was confirmed with Afghanistan, it had to be obvious to Putin that he would never have a better opportunity than now. IMO Europe has grown a spine because they perceive they could be next and best that Russia become exhausted on the battlefield in Ukraine.

    IMO it is immoral to buy a drop of Russian oil, to finance the slaughter of civilians. Biden obviously does not agree. His Green New Deal to save a tenth of a degree in 2100 is more important – when emissions from this war may set that back many years. Since Russia is primarily an exporter of raw materials, buying nothing from them and sourcing elsewhere, at a higher price, might crash their economy pretty quickly.

      Ironclaw in reply to jb4. | March 2, 2022 at 11:31 pm

      Since when did communist pedoiphiles like Biden give a crap about morality. He cares what pays his 10%, nothing more or less.

SuddenlyHappyToBeHere | March 3, 2022 at 9:47 am

Fuzzy: I think Fatkins got the better of the usual suspects in that comment war. But you should consider one of your stated bases for removing comments. There is a lot of flame coming from opponents of Fatkins. Take this one for example: Ironclad called another commenter “retard”. I thought ad hominem remarks were a basis for deleting???

Steven Brizel | March 3, 2022 at 11:22 am

Putin has sized Democrats up correctly as soft and appeasers on national security issues- that was confirmed by how Biden fled Kabul last summer ,placed our energy policies under the control of no growth radical environmentalists and engaged in lockdowns, and pushed the woke agenda of systemic racism,, gender identity and climate change.

I remember the Cold War. I was able to take Russian classes in high school and we had a visit from the Russian embassy. There was an opponent, maybe even an enemy, even “mutually assured destruction” although we were pretty sure that with adults on both sides, that wasn’t a big risk.

But there was never cancellation. At least here in USA. In the Soviet Union, there was intellectual cancellation and things you couldn’t say.

Now we have cancellation here and all around the west.

I think, and hope, Biden is acting as the adult in the room, even as both parties scream at him to move toward WW3. Despite the corrupt history of Biden and Hunter in Ukraine, still that’s what it looks like.

Obama promised to help Ukraine defend itself from Russia and he lied. When Russia attacked he did almost nothing. Trump sent antitank missiles. Biden enabled the Russian attack by promising that our military wouldn’t join the conflict. Putin got his moneys worth from the millions in bribes he paid Biden. China will attack Taiwan soon and will benefit from the $30 million a year they pay Quisling Biden. Both China and Russia know they need to attack while Quisling Biden is president.
