Why shouldn’t Moscow ‘denigrate’ doddery Biden and the xenophobic ‘anti-Russia’ establishment? In fact America should do so too!

Robert Bridge

Warning! This article is written by another Russian loving American.

The US Intelligence Community (IC) issued a report that says Russia is not a fan of Democratic presidential hopeful Joe Biden and the anti-Russia ‘establishment.’ If true, what is so unbelievable about the Kremlin’s stance?

The statement released on Friday says, in part, that Russia is employing “a range of measures to … denigrate former Vice President Biden and what it sees as an anti-Russia ‘establishment.’” It went on to say that this approach is consistent with Moscow’s criticism of Joe Biden when he was Barack Obama’s vice president “for his role in … policies on Ukraine and its support for the anti-Putin opposition inside Russia.” Perhaps the best response to such an accusation would be to ask: Does the Democratic Party really need the Kremlin’s help in denigrating their top nominee for the presidential ticket when Joe Biden has been more than capable of denigrating himself? In fact, the day before the IC statement was released it was difficult to deny that the 77-year-old candidate’s use-by shelf date may have already expired.

It was only a year ago that Joe Biden said: “Poor kids are just as bright & as talented as White kids.”A month ago he said “You ain’t Black unless you vote for me”This week he said Black people aren’t diverse.Time flies by some things stay the same! pic.twitter.com/kzkSE3tmeO— Robby Starbuck (@robbystarbuck) August 9, 2020

That realization came during Biden’s latest interview smashup when he attempted some mental gymnastics by contrasting the Black and Latino communities. It didn’t go down well. Once again, Biden wrapped his brain around a guardrail he never saw coming. “Unlike the African American community, with notable exceptions,” he said, “the Latino community is an incredibly diverse community with incredibly different attitudes about different things.”

Here is where the impartial observer must honestly appreciate Russia’s position in the matter. After all, if by some miraculous act of divine intervention Biden actually defeats Trump in November, Moscow will have to adjust its military strategy around a Commander-in-Chief who may wake up one morning and confuse the nuclear briefcase for his shaving kit. Although that may be overstating Biden’s control of the nuclear ‘football’, as well as his purported mental decline, it is nevertheless hard to deny that much more unpredictability will have entered into the US-Russia relationship should Biden win in November, especially when it is remembered where things stood between the two countries under Obama.

This brings us to the question of the “anti-Russia establishment” that the US intelligence report seems to think is a figment of Russia’s imagination. Yet Moscow has certainly never forgotten how Obama and Biden deliberately sabotaged any hope for a US-Russia rapprochement, as Trump had pledged he would pursue in his presidency. Suffice it to recall how Obama, on the bogus pretense that Russia had meddled in the 2016 election, ejected 35 Russian diplomats just days before Trump was sworn in as president. That regrettable act was followed up by a three-year Democratic witch-hunt known as ‘Russiagate’ that did significant damage to bilateral relations between the nuclear superpowers. Incredibly, however, as the Mueller Report made clear, the scandal had nothing to do with Moscow and everything to do with a major power struggle still being waged between the Democrats and Republicans over Trump’s expressed desire to ‘drain the swamp.’ All things considered, should Russia be blamed for thinking there is a very hawkish “anti-Russia establishment” roosting in Washington? Of course not.

Finally, there is another peculiar aspect about the Intel report that lends credence to the idea of an anti-Trump ‘resistance’ in Washington, pulling strings behind the scenes to bring down the US leader. In the giddy words of the Washington Post: “Trump’s intel officials made it a whole lot harder for Trump’s allies to push narratives they’ve been using to smear Biden.” 

For those who may be confused, here is the Democrat Adam Schiff, the chair of the House Intelligence Committee, to summarize: “Members of Congress are on notice and need to be very careful not to advance narratives that may be coming from the Kremlin.” So why is Schiff, who spearheaded failed impeachment efforts against Trump over ‘Ukrainegate’, continuing to spread the debunked claim that Trump is reading a script that was written for him in the Kremlin? The answer is contained in the intelligence report, which accuses “pro-Russia Ukrainian parliamentarian Andriy Derkach” of “spreading claims about corruption … to undermine former Vice President Biden’s candidacy and the Democratic Party.”

Now it’s beginning to make sense. After all, it was none other than “pro-Russia” Andriy Derkach who released audio recordings that appear to show conversations between then Vice President Joe Biden and former Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko in May. In those recordings, it’s presumed Poroshenko was heard reporting on the “progress” he was making towards unblocking a $1 billion IMF loan to Ukraine of which the US was a guarantor. Apparently Joe Biden’s earlier demand that Kiev fire prosecutor Viktor Shokin, who was looking into corruption at the gas company Burisma, where Biden’s son Hunter was a paid board member, was not enough to seal the deal.

So now, in the event that Biden emerges from his basement to actually debate Trump, the Democrat’s will crow in one voice that Trump is merely repeating “pro-Russia” talking points should the incumbent challenge Biden on his severely questionable work in Ukraine. It is truly remarkable to see how the Democratic Party, despite everything that was revealed and not revealed over the last four years, continues to push the ‘Russian meddling’ trope. It would be refreshing to see less emphasis placed on Russia in the upcoming US presidential race, and more on the very serious issues affecting the country, but that may be hoping for too much. In other words, its politics as usual in Washington, DC in one of the most divisive and explosive election years to come along in many years.

  • “Suffice it to recall how Obama, on the bogus pretense that Russia had meddled in the 2016 election, ejected 35 Russian diplomats just days before Trump was sworn in as president.”

    Methinks the author of this trash has a selective memory. Trump expelled 60 diplomats over the Skripal case in 2018, or did he conveniently forget that? The interfering has already begun, Russia using useful idiots like this to launch one sided attacks on Biden. Not that I have any desire to see Biden win, and I’m sure the Republicans don’t need the likes of this journalists promoting them, especially one who regularly contributes to RT, Global Research, Zero Hedge, and does not even live in the US, but in the shithole called Moscow.

    • I see protests in Bulgaria. Protests in Belarus. Protests in RuSSia’s far east. If this trend continues, Putin and his Empire will be gone in a few years or less.

    • This turd reminds me of another fucking shill. You remember you dug under a stone and found a serious US putinazi in a senior role in US academia? Dr Stephen Cohen. God knows how many kids whose minds he has poisoned with putinoid sewage?
      He turned up on YouTube the other day; instructing one of putler’s hardest working media shills; Michael Savage, in anti-Ukraine hate and lies. Savage was so happy he sounded like he got wood just from from listening.

    Reading some of Biden’s quotes plainly allows any person with even normal intelligence to see that Biden is doing a grand job to smear his own self. I know that the Trumpet is no Optimus Prime, but this is the best the dems have to offer as a presidential candidate? I LMAO.

  • “WHY SHOULDN’T MOSCOW ‘DENIGRATE’ DODDERY BIDEN AND THE XENOPHOBIC ‘ANTI-RUSSIA’ ESTABLISHMENT?”
    The mafiosi denigrate anything even remotely against them anyway.
    It is always a good idea and even important to be anti-Russian, until the unlikely day comes when this trash country is, at least, for the most part, playing by the rules, gives back Crimea, Donbas, Transnistria and so forth.

  • There is no “anti-Russia establishment.” But there should be one. Being anti-Russia should be the default position in a civilized country? It is supposed to be illegal for supporters of naziism to enter the US. Yet Russian officials are still allowed.

    According to the polls miracles may indeed happen.
    As for Biden’s merritts On his worst day I doubt he will recommend people clean themselves out with bleach.
    Good God!
    Or forget Britain is a nuclear power.
    Or trust Fox News over his advisors.
    Or waste his valuable time indulging in twitter wars over insignificant issues.
    Or have his lawyers stand in front of federal judge and claim the President is immune to all investigations and prosecutions.
    Or suggest the elections be postponed because of a virus. A virus he used to think was a hoax.
    Or that he was going to unleash vicious attack dogs on protesters.
    If the US was a post Soviet country and Trump had a russian sounding name tell me honestly what you be saying about him?
    After watching Ukraine vs Russia for so many years I doubt it would be very supportive.

    • Congratulations. You’ve managed to list almost all the propagandistic talking points against Trump. Trump has provided lethal aid to Ukraine and sanctioned Russia and numerous Russian oligarchs, something the previous maladminstration never did. I’ll remind you that Putin wanted Hillary as she would have been easy to manipulate. Not so much Trump.
