Tough On Putin? How Democrat Policies Enriched Russia While US Economy Hits The Skids

This past year has been one in which Dems have been forced to choose between competing priorities: oppose Putin or push their green agenda. Because they can’t have it both ways.

Anyone who made the mistake of either taking these clowns at their word or believing official regime media narratives over the past year would have been shocked by which choice came out on top.

Biden slaps sanctions on Russia

After announcing those sanctions against various Russian interests, Joe took a victory lap by pointing to the collapse of the ruble. If that was all you looked at, you might think he has Vladamir on the ropes. But that all changes when you zoom out and look at the big picture situation.

Just look at the public stances Democrats have taken in the past.

What we were told to expect in a Biden Adminstration

What have we seen since 2016 but endless haranguing about the looming threat of ‘Russia, Russia, Russia’? It even became part of Joe’s platform against Trump. Biden positioned himself as a tough guy who was going to show Putin who’s boss.

Combine that with the official (and devastating!) repudiation of the Green New Deal when AOC first floated it in Congress when not even ONE Senator voted for it.

And it SHOULD have been repudiated. ClashDaily has previously reported that AOC’s own chief of staff admitted it was NOT about the ENVIRONMENT so much as an intentional reordering of society to fit a socialist agenda:

According to the report, Chakrabarti told an aide for Washington Gov. Jay Inslee (D), a presidential candidate, that his boss’s Green New Deal “wasn’t originally a climate thing at all.” “Do you guys think of it as a climate thing?” Chakrabarti says, “Because we really think of it as a how-do-you-change-the-entire-economy thing.” You can’t get much more revolutionary than that. (Read the rest here)

Biden ran as the ‘moderate’ candidate and thumped his chest about having ‘defeated the Socialist’.

A lot of people who could never have taken a chance on a firebrand like Bernie thought Biden was a mainstream choice when they cast their votes in 2020. Little did they know how wrong they were.

What we actually got with Russia

Biden once taunted Trump as ‘Putin’s Puppy’. Since then, both and his party have quickly morphed into Vladamir’s b*tches.

How else can you explain their policy choices?

Democrats fought — like hell — to keep Putin’s pipeline to Europe open. Even when it became obvious that he was an imminent military threat to Ukraine. Why? It turns out that Democrats were very much addicted to Putin’s lobbying money.

Even when called upon to do the right thing to oppose Putin, elected Democrats #Resisted biting the hand that feeds them right up until the point that public pressure became unbearable. For example:

With the crumbling ruble, are Russia’s war machine, and the petro economy that keeps it running finally on the ropes? Not exactly.

Russia’s energy economy has been booming. Why? They’re cashing in on soaring energy prices. Prices that have been skyrocketing ever since Biden turned his back on Trump’s policy of American energy independence.

Russia’s energy export revenue in 2022 is expected to increase by more than a third from 2021 and drive the country’s account-balance surplus to a record high, recent reports reveal.

Sanctions imposed by countries opposing the invasion of Ukraine haven’t dampened the performance of, and outlook, for Russia’s energy export revenue and current-account, Bloomberg reports:

“For all the hardships visited on consumers at home and the financial chokehold put on the government from abroad, Bloomberg Economics expects Russia will earn nearly $321 billion from energy exports this year, an increase of more than a third from 2021. It’s also on track for a record current-account surplus that the Institute of International Finance says may reach as high as $240 billion.” –CNSNews

Meanwhile, in America

What about Joe’s big promises to ride in like a white knight and fix all the economic problems he blamed, not on pandemic shutdowns but on Trump?

As his old boss once said, ‘elections have consequences’. Biden is living proof.

From Day One the Shambling Mound of Mediocrity has produced every roadblock he could think of to slow down the ‘evil’ energy economy at the heart of America’s industry, which (in turn), spreads significant prosperity throughout the world.

Can’t drill here. Can’t get permits there. And don’t even think about applying for a loan for THAT industry while woke hall monitors wait to pounce on any bank stupid enough to back them.

You can blame Putin or ‘global prices’ all you want, but when you target the world’s leading producer of energy and cut their production WAY down, prices have only one way to go… up.

Those soaring energy prices might be a gift to Putin’s war machine, but they are a boot on the neck of the American economy, where every product is delivered by a truck, where every home and business needs heat and light, and where every component of agriculture — from fertilizer to farm equipment — is extremely sensitive to energy prices.

Higher farm production costs will drive food shortages, higher prices or (ultimately) both.

Apart from the seizure of some property, or propping up Ukraine’s war effort, is there ANYTHING in the Democrat plan Vlad would want them to change?

Regan brought Gorbechov to his knees partly because he beat him economically. Is Joe’s economic recklessness putting us in danger of putting America on the wrong side of a similar equation?

Psalms of War: Prayers That Literally Kick Ass is a collection, from the book of Psalms, regarding how David rolled in prayer. I bet you haven’t heard these read, prayed, or sung in church against our formidable enemies — and therein lies the Church’s problem. We’re not using the spiritual weapons God gave us to waylay the powers of darkness. It might be time to dust them off and offer ‘em up if you’re truly concerned about the state of Christ’s Church and of our nation.

Also included in this book, Psalms of War, are reproductions of the author’s original art from his Biblical Badass Series of oil paintings.

This is a great gift for the prayer warriors. Real. Raw. Relevant.
