Democratic Narrative Busted: Vladimir Putin comes to the rescue of the Bidens

Democratic Narrative Busted: Vladimir Putin comes to the rescue of the Bidens

Here, this is the kind of character witness that a Democrat needs to love.

Russian President Vladimir Putin, no doubt astounded that his opinion bears such weight in the liberal domain of the United States, has agreed to consider the case of Hunter Biden and his questionable business dealings in Eastern Europe.

And for Putin, the powerful heir of the decades-old Soviet dictators, Hunter has done nothing wrong.

Or at least no “criminals” at all.

In an interview with Reuters, Putin apparently tried to downplay the growing allegations that former Vice President Joe Biden’s son had made himself a wealthy man by peddling his father’s influence globally.

A laptop that apparently belonged to Hunter, which appeared in a computer repair shop in Wilmington, Delaware, shows some highly troubling details about the business dealings of the Biden family in Ukraine and China.

But they are obviously only alarming to Americans, and to those who care about the country’s position as a bulwark of democracy in a world of manipulative dictatorships. (In other words, the Democrats and mass media are not interested)

The revelations make the Bidens look more like a crime family than a possible first family, but it seems that Putin has no problem with it.

“Yeah, in Ukraine [Hunter Biden], or maybe he still has a company, I don’t know. It’s not about us. It affects the Americans and the Ukrainians, “said Putin, according to Reuters.

Do you think that Putin is playing with the anti-Trump American media?

“But well, yes, he had at least one company, which he basically headed up, and measured by all that he had made good money.

“I don’t see something criminal in this, at least we don’t know anything about [being a criminal].”

First of all, let’s agree that President Putin’s definition of a “terrorist” may be considerably different from that of the average voter in Pennsylvania or Wisconsin.

After all, this is the Russian leader who rewrote the map of Europe in a brazen act of aggression in 2014 when he annexed Ukraine’s Crimea in 2014 – an act by the spineless Obama-Biden administration that opposed targeted sanctions aimed, as CBS said, at “two dozen members of Putin’s inner circle and a major bank supporting them.”

To the horror of no one, wrist slaps like this have not changed Russia’s mind, and the country has been fighting a sporadic war against Ukraine’s eastern border ever since.

As the nation was reminded during President Donald Trump’s surreal indictment, the Obama-Biden administration declined to give lethal assistance to the government of Ukraine, correcting Trump’s mistake.

In other words, Putin is a man who simply does not consider it a “criminal” to use force and the threat of military force to rob a large landmass in the middle of Europe with a population of more than 2 million.

Compared to that, Hunter’s landing a job with Ukraine’s energy firm at a salary of at least $50,000 a month for a little influence peddling is pretty small potatoes — almost ludicrous, probably, to Putin’s calibre criminal.

But here’s how NBC News played the storey — as though it somehow made the Bidens look good and Trump look terrible.

Russian President Putin says he sees nothing criminal in Hunter Biden’s past business relations with Ukraine or Russia, marking his disagreement with one of President Trump’s lines of attack in the US presidential election. https:/t.co/ZYjCaHfz

Notice that the fawning subheader NBC News used:

“The Russian President took the time to put down what he had made clear that he considered Trump’s baseless accusation of the Bidens.”

He took the time out of his busy day running a dictatorship to clear things up with the media on what Trump said about the Bidens.

The entire event, including coverage by NBC and other media outlets, is not just a parody of the Democratic and mass media narrative of the past four years — the narrative that depicted Trump as a Kremlin puppet. It would obliterate it.

Not all fell for the mass media, however.

Love it, now the MSM believes every word in Russia. Cracks me up, man


Well, if Putin said it closed the case. No further investigation was required. Well done with @NBCNews.

Now, to be sure, no healthy person — not even a liberal — is seriously worried about whether Vladimir Putin finds the actions of the son of the former vice-president to be “illegal.”

Putin himself is too much of an international terrorist, a tyrant who has ruled a country that has been a global rival of the United States for more than a century.

What matters here is how mass media and way too many social media commentaries take it as a hint that Russia is already somehow worried about Biden’s victory.

This is the same Joe Biden who was against the attack on Osama bin Laden, remember? (He’s lying about it now.)

The assault that became the Obama administration’s statement that it wasn’t the wet-rag poor sister it looked like for eight years, while Putin transformed the face of Eastern Europe, a murderous Muslim caliphate was built in the Middle East, and Iran rolled the U.S.—a nation that calls the Great Satan for $400 million shipped by air in secret.

In other words, Biden was the shy wing of the government, very much led by a coward when it came to defending American international interests.

There is nothing more land-grabbers like Vladimir Putin, China’s Xi Jinping, or the murderous mullahs of Tehran would love than to see the American Oval Office once again held by a wicked democrat with no moral or intellectual strength to protect his country and the Western World.

And if that’s a character reference for Hunter Biden, it’s a small price to pay.

It’s just the kind of comparison that the 21st-century Democrat will appreciate.

The best places to spot bald eagles in Missouri this winter

The best places to spot bald eagles in Missouri this winter

ST. LOUIS, Mo. – Since 1782 the majestic bald eagle has been the national bird of the United States. They were on the verge of extinction when the federal government declared them endangered in 1978.

Now, the species has made a remarkable comeback, and spotting them isn’t as rare as it was decades ago. The state of Missouri is sort of a magnet for the birds as they move south for the winter, looking for open water to fish.

There are more than 175 active eagle nests in Missouri. Typically there are more than 2,000 bald eagles spotted during the winter.

Spotting the birds often depends on the weather. Temperatures up north must be cold enough to push the eagles southward. But if a major cold spell freezes most lakes and wetlands, the birds will migrate south.

You can see the birds along the Mississippi River. They are often seen in trees along the banks and near the locks that control the flow of the water.

The Missouri Department of Conservation reports that you can see the eagles in the Kansas City and St. Joseph areas along the Missouri River. They often perch in tall trees looking for prey.

Here are some of the best places to find bald eagles in Missouri:

  • Old Chain of Rocks Bridge south of I-270, off of Riverview Drive, St. Louis
  • Audubon Center at Riverlands east of West Alton
  • Lake of the Ozarks at Bagnell Dam Access, east of Bagnell
  • Eagle Bluffs Conservation Area on Route K, southwest of Columbia
  • Lock & Dam 24 at Clarksville
  • Lock & Dam 25 east of Winfield
  • Mingo National Wildlife Refuge northwest of Puxico
  • Schell-Osage Conservation Area north of El Dorado Springs
  • Smithville Lake north of Kansas City
  • Loess Bluffs National Wildlife Refuge south of Mound City
  • Swan Lake National Wildlife Refuge south of Sumner
  • Table Rock Lake and Shepherd of the Hills Fish Hatchery southwest of Branson
  • Truman Reservoir west of Warsaw

Parade of planets visible in the night sky this week

ST. LOUIS – There will be a parade of planets this month. December 6-10 you will be able to see three planets and then on December 12 you will be able to see 5. There will be a crescent moon earlier in the month which will provide less moonlight, making it easier to see the planets.

The Missouri Department of Conservation shared this timeline for planet viewing:

  • On December 6th, the crescent moon will appear near Venus within 3 degrees in the early evening sky. Venus is the brightest planet.
  • On December 7th, the crescent moon and Saturn are about 5 degrees apart. Saturn is a fainter planet with a gold color. If conditions are right, you can see its rings with a telescope during twilight, and may even see its largest moon, Titan,
  • On December 8th, the moon approaches close to Jupiter, our largest planet. With clear conditions and a telescope, you may be able to see its four largest moons.
  • On December 10th, look for the moon, Jupiter, and Saturn forming a nice row in the sky.

The St. Louis Astronomy Facebook page says the best time to observe 5 planets together will be after sunset on December 12. Venus, Saturn, Jupiter, and the moon will be visible to the naked eye. You will need a pair of binoculars or a small telescope to see Neptune, Uranus, Ceres (a dwarf planet), and Pallas (a large asteroid).
