Biden Tried to Silence the Ukrainians but They’re Exposing the Threat He’s Created

What kind of kompromat does Russia have on Joe Biden? Because had President Donald Trump done the things that Biden has done in regard to the Nord Stream 2 pipeline, Democrats and media would be screaming to high heaven.

Not only did Biden reverse America’s longstanding opposition to the completion of the pipeline by waiving sanctions on the Russia-controlled company involved, but as I reported a few days ago, the Biden team had been leaning on the Ukrainians and folks in Eastern Europe to keep quiet and not voice their objections to the deal that Biden has worked out with Germany to allow the completion.

Politico reported that they’ve been told by four people “with knowledge of the conversations” that the U.S. has been telling Ukraine to shut up about any opposition, not to go public with it, and not to talk to Congress about their concerns, unless they want to “damage” the relationship they have with the Biden administration.

But to Ukraine’s credit, they’re refusing to shut up, despite the threat by Biden to go along to get along. And Poland is also objecting to the threat that Biden is creating by this deal.

From Politico:

Ukraine has demanded formal talks with Brussels and Berlin on the pipeline, known as Nord Stream 2, invoking a clause of its agreement with the EU on political association and economic integration. Kyiv’s foreign minister, Dmytro Kuleba, also sent a joint statement with his counterpart in Poland, saying efforts to allay their concerns “cannot be considered sufficient.”

The Ukrainian-Polish statement says U.S. President Joe Biden’s decision to stop opposing the pipeline “has created political, military and energy threat for Ukraine and Central Europe, while increasing Russia’s potential to destabilize the security situation in Europe, perpetuating divisions among NATO and European Union member states.”

Not only is Biden threatening Ukraine and trying to shut them up, but he didn’t even meet with the Ukrainians prior to coming to this deal with Germany. He’s treating Ukraine like they are yesterday’s news while buddying up to Vladimir Putin as Russians cyber attack us. He doesn’t have a meeting planned with Ukraine’s president until August 30, after the deal is expected to be finished by August 19. What’s also special about that date? Congress won’t be in session and the Ukrainian president then can’t register his objections in person with Congress. Just one more piece of evidence that the Biden team is trying to shut down any objections.

Biden is throwing our allies under the bus and endangering the stability of Europe that we’ve tried to ensure since World War II. This gives Russia a foothold we’ve been trying to avoid for decades and Joe just hands it right over. If Trump had done this, we’d already be hearing about impeachment.

The Kyiv Post has an opinion piece calling him “Blinking, wimping Biden” and calling the deal a “disgraceful shambles.” Somehow, I’m not thinking that they think “America is back” with Joe Biden in charge.

But interestingly, even some Democrats are objecting because they know how bad this is. So why is this being allowed?

The Congressional Ukraine Caucus strongly urges the White House to reschedule its meeting with President Zelenskiy when Congress is in session. Congress stands by our friend and ally Ukraine and opposes Nord Stream 2.6:54 PM · Jul 22, 202155624Share this Tweet


Senate Foreign Relations Committee@SFRCdemsI remain opposed to the Nordstream 2 pipeline, which will negatively impact the security of Ukraine & Europe. I still believe it should be stopped. The agreement with Germany may mitigate some of these challenges posed by NS2, but it falls short.

  • Why should Ukraine keep quiet. He can’t sell Ukraine down the river twice. I suppose the next orders he will get from the Kremlin is not to fulfil the contract for Patriots in Poland, and he’ll agree to it.

    • So far, Biden has been obedient for Putin. Completely. And when he warned Ukraine not to speak about the deal with Germany it really bothered me…as an American. That is a really rude demand. This article got me thinking perhaps these weren’t demands from the White House, but the Kremlin.
      Ukraine needs to katy bar the doors for 3.5 years, this is going to be ugly.

      • What we need is a cross party delegation from Congress to visit Ukraine, find out what is going on. Then they can deliver a report back to Congress on this betrayal. If Biden is blocking Zelensky from meeting Congress, then Congress should meet him.

    Ordering Ukraine to remain silent on the decrepit and disgraceful NSII deal is proof that this monkey is a leftist since leftists are always suppressive and that he KNOWS that his agreement to NSII was a decrepit and disgraceful act.

  • What a lot of people don’t realise is that Germany has a population of almost 8m Russians. This represents a huge lobby. Add to that the almost total ownership of Germany’s political elite and you have a Russian colony hiding in plain sight.
    Putler is on the brink of controlling the EU and just at this key point in history, the treacherous fool Biden decides to make a US/German/Russian pact.
