There are few things Democrats love more than themselves, but one of those things is Ukraine. Here is where I’ll insert the caveat that I support Ukraine’s sovereignty and all of that. But what I’m not willing to do for Ukraine, or nearly any other country for that matter, is to go broke in defense of them. Sorry, a corrupt eastern European country isn’t worth it to me. But it is to Democrats, especially Joe Biden. Why?
I don’t know the answer, no one can really know what goes on behind the vacant start of the narcissist in chief, but I do have some questions about it.
Everyone on the political right looks at that famous video of Biden from 2018 where he proudly announces he, as Vice President, demanded the firing of a Ukrainian prosecutor who was, totally coincidentally, looking into the company paying his son $80,000 per month, and takes him at his word. (Ten percent for the “Big Guy” anyone?) Why should we?
The left-wing media immediately circled the wagons, refusing to even entertain the concept that any Democrat would do anything beneficial to their own bank accounts. The right took it as a confession.
What if we on the right were wrong? We know the left is, obviously, but what if Biden wasn’t taking credit for getting a guy fired in the way he was, but it was simply Joe being Joe?
Nearly every aspect of Joe Biden’s life is a lie, at least the aspects he speaks publicly about. His words are so disconnected from reality that people who know him think he’s talking about someone else. He was active in the civil rights movement (he was not), he was arrested trying to visit Nelson Mandela in South Africa (never happened), he was a popular football hero in college (he wasn’t) who somehow had such severe asthma that he got repeated draft deferments? (Do you know any lifeguards with major respiratory issues? Seems like that might be a little disqualifying, doesn’t it?)
Then there is the famous rant he went off on in New Hampshire during his first presidential run in 1987. Biden was asked by a voter about where he went to law school and how his grades were. He responded, “I think I have a much higher IQ than you, I suspect. I went to law school on a full academic scholarship — the only one in my class to have full academic scholarship. The first year in law school, I decided I didn’t want to be in law school and ended up in the bottom two-thirds of my class. And then decided I wanted to stay and went back to law school and, in fact, ended up in the top half of my class. I won the international moot court competition. I was the outstanding student in the political science department at the end of my year. I graduated with three degrees from undergraduate school and 165 credits; you only needed 123 credits. I would be delighted to sit down and compare my IQ to yours, Frank.”
Not a word of that is true. (Read about it here.)
So, why should we believe Biden on that Ukrainian prosecutor?
All of Joe’s lies are told to make him look more important than he is (he’s wildly insecure) and much tougher than he is (saying he’d like to have a fist fight with Trump or challenge some doubting voter to a push-up contest), when he is neither.
Saying he demanded the prosecutor be fired while walking to the event announcing the loan guarantee from the United States is not how things would have been done. All the I’s were dotted and T’s crossed by the time the VP gets involved and the press conference scheduled. If Biden had threatened to pull the plug at that moment, it would be news and would have leaked. Even if it didn’t leak that the time (somehow), it would have been known before Biden told the world at a public event.
Was Joe Biden lying about how that went down? We have every reason to believe he was. Which would lead to the question of why then Joe would want that prosecutor fired at all, and he’d he be aware of it at VP. It seems pretty low rent for the second highest person in the US government to enforce, it’s more for low-level staff to handle long before.
Something doesn’t add to for me. Could it be that Biden decided to tie the two events – the money and the firing – together because it endeared him to the people paying a fortune to his crackhead son? Claim credit for something you didn’t do, but did happen, to keep the gravy train rolling?
I don’t know, but given Joe’s past of lying about literally everything exactly like this and raking in a fortune through his family off his positions in government, it makes more sense to me than the official story. And it might be why Joe’s so loyal to Ukraine for no rational reason, just imagine what they have on him from all this?
