While every year of the Biden administration has been rough, it appears that 2024 is an especially rough year in terms of full-blown federal incompetence.
North Korean leader Kim Jung-On just pulled a rather fast one on the Biden regime, not to mention the entire NATO membership, considering that Russia is now happily firing off North Korean missiles in a full-on assault of Ukraine.
John Kirby, the beleaguered Coordinator for Strategic Communications at the National Security Council, has openly admitted that North Korea effectively pulled a fast one on the United States.
“Our information indicates that the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea recently provided Russia with ballistic missile launchers and several ballistic missiles. On Dec. 30, 2023, Russian forces launched at least one of these North Korean missiles into Ukraine,” Kirby drearily announced during a recent press conference.
So, nearly two years later, and the White House is basically being put in its place by Russia, Iran, China, and North Korea in the (deliberately?) interminable Ukraine War.
That’s nice. Considering that North Korea is allegedly one of the most “sanctioned” regimes on the planet, it is rather curious that the Far East nation was able to move huge amounts of armory, missiles, and other war supplies thousands upon thousands of miles away.
Right in time for hostile foreign powers’ New Year’s “celebrations,” which may well be coming to an American city near year, at the rate this incompetent administration is going.
After all, December did witness a record-breaking 300,000 migrants swarm the border, and odds are pretty good that at least one of them has rather nefarious intentions in mind.
The Biden administration’s incompetence is especially acute when it’s contrasted with Biden’s forceful, albeit ghostwritten, words that were delivered during his 2022 “State of the Union” address.
“Together, along with our Allies, we are right now enforcing powerful economic sanctions. We’re cutting off Russia’s largest banks from the international financial system; preventing Russia’s Central Bank from defending the Russian rubil [sic] — ruble, making Putin’s $630 billion war fund worthless,” Biden boomed in 2022.
Way to mispronounce “ruble,” Mr. President. Gotta love it when the official White House webpage effectively “spell checks” Biden … after he’s delivered his speech to the world.
“We’re choking Russia’s access to technology that will sap its economic strength and weaken its military for years to come,” Biden continued ranting, “tonight, I say to the Russian oligarchs and the corrupt leaders who’ve bilked billions of dollars off this violent regime: No more!”
These words, delivered a grand total of six days after the invasion of Ukraine, reveal that Biden clearly bit off way more than he can chew.
After all, the reality is that nearly two years after Biden delivered these remarks, Ukraine is clearly not gaining the upper hand on Russia.
Especially as North Korea can apparently outwit Biden and his so-called “sanctions.”
Heck, the White House didn’t even bother with an embargo on Russia as it has previously with Cuba, further underscoring the rather weak approach Biden has taken in the face of Putin.
Either that, or he’s known the whole time that the Ukraine War is a black hole for American money (and weapons), as well as an excellent distraction from an increasingly vitriolic China.
A hostile, unabashedly communist power that doubt has Taiwan, and its entire chip making industry, well within its reptilian sights.
Given that multiple branches of the U.S. military missed all their recruitment targets for 2023, at least in part due to bizarre “diversity” initiatives and preferential hiring practices, it would not be surprising at all if China makes a move sooner rather than later.
Especially as China is likely the one powering the transfer of North Korean weapons to Russia in the first place … a transfer that bodes well for Beijing’s even more frightening ambitions.
