Dear Russia: You can keep Griner and take Biden, too
By Mark Young
It shouldn’t surprise anyone that the Biden administration is willing to trade a notorious Russian arms dealer who is responsible for an untold number of deaths, in exchange for an American basketball player who hates America.
The prisoner exchange will give us back Brittney Griner, who said the National Anthem should no longer be played at WNBA games. Russia will get back Viktor Bout who was convicted in 2011 for conspiring to kill Americans.
If you’ve ever seen the movie, “Lord of War,” starring Nicholas Cage, well, that movie was about the rise of Bout following the collapse of the Soviet Union.
Bout immediately took advantage of the chaos and secured Soviet weaponry, which he began to sell to the highest bidder.
Bout earned the nickname, “Merchant of Death,” because as a black market arms dealer, he didn’t care who was killing who as long as he got paid.
Bout for Griner is nonsense, but makes perfect sense to Biden who was involved in the treasonous prisoner exchange of traitor Bowe Bergdahl for five Taliban commanders during his tenure as vice president.
What exactly did we get for Bergdahl, who because he left his station to intentionally surrender to the Taliban cost several American lives when they initially assumed he had been captured and heroically tried to find him?
Well, we got a traitor and sent five Taliban commanders back to the battlefield to kill Americans. P.S. The Taliban promised the released prisoners would not return to the fight.
Imagine our shock when it turned out that the Taliban lied again.
This all occurred during a time where Obama and Biden supported liberal efforts to provide Teddy Bears and X-boxes to the terrorists at GITMO.
I honestly never thought I would see something more stupid than what Biden and Obama did when it came to the handling of terrorists and honoring traitors.
Nope, but liberal voters said, “Hold my beer,” and elected Biden to the White House, although that result is still up for debate.
Liberals really haven’t changed through the course of history if you look at the facts. They have always been illogical. This is the part where I remind you that science has proved it.
Patriots have always recognized the threat ahead of time and take a shoot first stance when the threat is both real and imminent. Liberals take more of a, “Well, let’s wait and see and get shot first before we debate doing anything,” approach.
History records it. Look at how the liberals challenged our first Patriots before declaring independence, and then look at how many of them joined the British Army to fight against their own Americans.
British Loyalists, they called themselves. Liberal traitors is more to the point.
Liberals insisted that the south should be allowed to form their own nation before the Civil War started. They said a united America and the freedom of an enslaved people wasn’t worth the fight.
Liberals challenged Conservatives wanting to take preemptive actions before the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor. Liberals said, “Oh, the Japanese aren’t going to attack us. We gave them flowers and Teddy Bears and they promised they wouldn’t attack us.”
Liberals had no choice in the weeks following 9-11, but if you have been around from the beginning, you’ve seen how quickly they changed their tune to coddling terrorists and saying 9-11 wasn’t worth the fight.
I’m a little off track at this point, but it’s all relevant to how liberals think when it comes to actual threats and how they react to real national security issues. And believe this, Viktor Bout is a national security issue.
It’s because liberals still believe in a global utopia where as long as you are nice to people, they will be nice to you and everyone will live happily ever after.
Liberals believe in a fairy tale and don’t live in reality with the rest of us.
Now Bout is not just a sleazy arms dealer. Somewhere along the way during the period of Russian reconstruction, Bout became involved with Russian intelligence.
In other words, I’m sure once Putin came onto the scene, Bout had the option to die or work to make Russia money by selling Russian arms on the black market. I think it’s clear which decision Bout made.
It’s the only explanation as to why Russia wants the guy back. He’s also the reason every little dictator in the western hemisphere has an army equipped with Russian weaponry.
Now I ask you, is the Merchant of Death worth a Brittney Griner?
Well Biden seems to think so. It’s summary of liberal incompetence. Liberals represent a clear and immediate danger to the United States of America.
As far as Griner goes, I say keep her. She was recorded in a Russian court saying she was becoming more comfortable being in Russia.
So stay there. And now she won’t have to worry about hearing our National Anthem for a while.
In fact, I wish Russia would capture all of our liberals and put them in a Russian prison. Maybe, just maybe, it might make them appreciate the greatest nation on the planet they are lucky enough to call home. And maybe, just maybe, they will finally come to understand that America is worth fighting for.
I doubt it though.
As always my fellow Patriots, stay vigilant, stay aware and stay informed. Our way of life depends upon it.
