I was born in 1973, and I did most of my growing up in the 1980s, back when the biggest threat to the American way of life came in the form of the Soviet Union, the communist block of countries that was presided over by Russia’s Kremlin.
We were worried about a full-out nuclear war back then… and with good reason. The USSR was an aggressive foe, and they seemed hell bent on opposing American interests wherever they were rooted.
Maybe it was the nature of our systems that put us at odds…maybe communists and capitalists simply can’t coexist with such oppositional ideas.
Either way, I think both countries breathed a collective sigh of relief when the Soviet Union fell and the once intimidating specter of communist leaders began to fade away into history.
Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev did their best to make sure the Cold War tensions that had existed between our two countries for decades thawed into warmer relations, and it opened up all kinds of possibilities for the future of both countries.
However, Glasnost and Perestroika took a heavy toll on Russia, putting them behind the 8-ball economically, as they no longer had access to the resources they once did (often through confiscation), and it’s taken Russia decades to recover.
Why Putin Is Angry
Russia has made a lot of headway under the ruthless and relentless Vladimir Putin, which was exactly why they changed their constitution to allow the former KGB officer to remain president indefinitely.
And while Russia has been gathering strength, America just traded our strength for weakness when Joe Biden was “elected” as president over the wildly successful, but highly controversial, Donald Trump.
Putin and Obama had an icy relationship, which saw Putin push the boundaries by often flying Russia aircraft near or IN American air space.
However, under Donald Trump, those instances of bravado ceased. If there was one thing Putin knew, it was that Trump wasn’t the type of president to let disrespect to our country fly.
However, it’s obvious Putin doesn’t hold Joe Biden in the same regard.
Putin has “punked” Biden on multiple occasions, including a thinly-veiled death threat that came after Biden accused Putin of being a killer on national TV.
And now, Putin is talking tough again—and the fact that Joe Biden isn’t ready to respond is exactly why Conservatives didn’t want this panty-waist in office in the first place.
What did the Russian President say?
On a conference call with fellow Russian officials, Putin has once again set his country and the US on opposite sides of the line, talking about foreign efforts to stop Russia from growing it’s power.
Putin’s Dangerous Rhetoric
“In all times, the same thing happened: once Russia grew stronger, they found pretexts to hamper its development,” Putin said. “Everyone wants to bite us or bite something off us, but those who would like to do so should know that we would knock their teeth out so that they couldn’t bite. The development of our military is the guarantee of that.”
If those aren’t fighting words, I don’t know WHAT is.
And while the Secretary of State has said that the US will meet out any aggression shown to us or our allies, the fact is, under Biden, it’s a hollow threat.
This is where we’re headed, folks.
This is what happens when you don’t have strength in the White House.
It’s EXACTLY what the globalists wanted…
And it’s the last thing America needed.
This is why too much Liberalism is bad for our country.
Let’s hope we survive the next four years.
