President Joe Biden’s domestic strategy is failing so he’s trying to distract Americans with yet another inevitable deadly conflict overseas.
Less than one year after he sacrificed at least 13 American lives and stranded thousands more to score political points by haphazardly withdrawing U.S. troops from Afghanistan, Biden is seriously considering sending more American service members to die on foreign soil.
On Monday, the president signaled that, after deliberations at Camp David over the weekend, he may send between 1,000 to 5,000 U.S. reinforcement troops to NATO allies in Eastern Europe and the Baltics to potentially deter Russia from invading Ukraine.
The Biden administration hasn’t directly stated that it will force American troops into combat in Ukraine itself, but the U.S. has already ramped up weapons shipments to Ukraine, the same county where the president’s scandal-ridden son, Hunter Biden, built his fortune. The State Department has also already ordered members of the U.S. embassy in Kyiv to leave Ukraine, signaling that the Biden administration sees Russia’s threats as imminent.
Instead of addressing the unchecked inflation, bare grocery shelves, ongoing pandemic, rising urban crime, and the U.S.’s own border troubles which regularly plague American families, the ever-unpopular Biden is using Russia’s conflict with Ukraine to pretend that his administration is doing something other than creating crises.
A myriad of new polls released this week shows that a majority, 56 percent, of Americans disapprove of the president’s job. So unhappy, in fact, that only 26 percent of Americans believe things in the country are going well.
Biden’s efforts to gracefully pass his Build Back Bankrupt plan and nuke the filibuster didn’t win the hearts and minds of voters as he wanted, so Biden is shifting his efforts abroad. It’s a “wag the dog” strategy that other world leaders have tried and ultimately failed to execute successfully.
As early as the 1800s, those in power used their authority to start conflicts with foreign powers to manipulate public opinion. French Emperor Louis Napoleon was suspected of pandering to French Catholics and trying to boost his country’s crumbling reputation when he entered the Crimean War in 1854. Napoleon, experts say, wanted to lord France’s power over Russian Orthodox Christians to keep Frenchmen’s minds off of problems at home.
A more recent example of this distraction came in 1998 when President Bill Clinton suddenly decided, just days after he confessed to having sexual relations with White House intern Monica Lewinsky, to bomb potential terrorists in Afghanistan and Sudan.
Some leftists in the corporate media even tried to accuse Trump of possibly gearing up foreign distractions to take off pressure at home.
While his own border is suffering, taking a toll on his and his VP’s popularity, Biden wants to ship Americans into a frozen wasteland thousands of miles away to possibly engage Russia and defend a country that is near and dear to his heart and his family’s pocketbooks. The homeland is suffering so Biden wants a distraction to prevent his reputation from falling further than it already has.
