Why does it seem that this administration is always reacting to a crisis instead of preventing the crisis in the first place?

They’ve done that with migrants (and fentanyl) flooding the border, Afghanistan, inflation, supply chains, gas prices, and, of course, COVID.

Now, this administration is suddenly surprised that Russia is miffed that the United States is taking a position and attempting to isolate Russia on the world stage. (Of course, this is just pushing them into closer ties with China and Iran, which, is not a great plan long-term, if you ask me. But the clueless Biden staffers running the show seem to be just as savvy as the doddering President who can’t seem to remember that Kamala Harris hasn’t already taken his job and has mixed up his wife and his sister at a rally two years ago.)

When Putin’s army crossed into Ukraine in late February, President Biden urged American companies, “harden your cyber defenses immediately.”

On Monday, at the Business Roundtable in Washington, the President confirmed that intelligence sources say that Russia is planning cyberattacks against the U.S. homeland.

President Joe Biden on Monday warned of Russian cyberattacks against the U.S. — making his most prominent alert yet about what he called new intelligence concerning the Putin regime’s plans.

“The more Putin’s back is against the wall, the greater the severity of the tactics he may employ … one of the tools he’s most likely to use in my view, in our view, is cyberattacks,” Biden said on Monday.

“The magnitude of Russia’s cyber capacity is fairly consequential and it’s coming,” he continued.

Biden had earlier issued a statement saying that the administration is reiterating earlier warnings, “based on evolving intelligence that the Russian Government is exploring options for potential cyberattacks.”

“It’s coming,” warned Biden.

Monday afternoon, Deputy National Security Advisor for Cyber and Emerging Technology Anne Neuberger joined White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki for the Press Briefing and reiterated the President’s warning.

“Today we are reiterating these warnings, and we are doing so based on evolving threat intelligence that the Russian government is exploring options for potential cyberattacks on critical infrastructure in the United States,” said Neuberg. She later added, “To be clear, there is no intelligence that there will be a cyberattack on critical infrastructure.”

Neuberger said the President’s warning was “a call to action and a call to responsibility” to guard against attacks.

It’s a good thing that Biden gave Putin a list of critical infrastructure that the United States doesn’t want hit or anything…

Good Lord, we’re so screwed.

Check out Doug’s latest book, The Art of Joe: The Political Brilliance of President Biden. If you have left-leaning family members, workmates, or classmates, to buy several copies and place them in common areas. Make sure you have your video camera ready for when they pick it up and thumb through it because they will be triggered which will make for a great viral video to share across social media. Also, buy a couple for the GOP NeverTrumpers that you know. Finally, both the book’s cover and the epilogue, Notable Quotable Joe are worth the price of admission. We’ve included before and after Biden on Afghanistan. Jen Psaki will no likey this book, but you will. BTW, the book is 95% bereft of any content. Just like Biden’s head.
