Someone finally decided to remind America about our history with Ukraine. Specifically, the Democrat history.
Remember, just a few years ago, Biden admittedly threatened the Ukraine, to protect his crackhead son with his cushy million-dollar job that he didn’t really have to do. And it’s not just the Bidens that should be under the microscope. The Clintons have ties to both Russia and Ukraine.
Furthermore, we’ve chronicled how Biden shut down the Keystone Pipeline the moment he took office. Then he started buying billions of barrels of Russian oil a day. Meanwhile, a group of lobbyists and even a Biden adviser were raking in millions off their Russian oil investments.
However, apparently, we aren’t the only ones who noticed the President’s flip-flopping positions and the number of Democrats tied to the demented clown.
The Hill reports:
An outside group headed by former Vice President Mike Pence will spend $10 million on new advertisements tying potentially vulnerable House Democrats to the Biden administration.
The advertisements, airing in 11 states, urge incumbent Democrats to support American energy production rather than relying on Russian oil.
“Before Russian bombs began to rain on Ukraine, before hundreds of innocent Ukrainians lost their lives, a horrific decision had already been made,” a narrator intones. “Joe Biden caved to the radical environmentalists and stopped America’s Keystone Pipeline and dramatically increased Americans’ dependence on Russian oil, endangering America’s security and helping Russia fund their invasion.”
Pence himself does not appear in the ad, paid for by Advancing American Freedom, the outside issue advocacy group he founded.
A bipartisan group of lawmakers have backed bans on Russian oil in recent days, after the Feb. 24 invasion of Ukraine. Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said last week she would entertain a ban.
The Pence-funded ad blitz targets four Texas Democrats, Reps. Colin Allred, Henry Cuellar, Lizzie Fletcher and Vicente Gonzalez. It will air in Iowa, against Rep. Cindy Axne (D), and in Maine, Oregon, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Ohio, Arizona, Virginia, Kansas and New Mexico, all states where Republicans hope to win House seats currently held by Democrats.
“In order to set the United States back on a path of energy independence, we need Congress to stand up to Putin and stand up for American energy,” Pence said in a statement announcing the ad buy.
Pence has slowly raised his profile in recent months as he considers his own political future. In an address to members of the Republican National Committee this weekend, Pence seemed to draw a contrast with his former boss, ex-President Trump, who has offered glowing assessments of Russian President Vladimir Putin.
“There is no room in this party for apologists for Putin,” Pence told donors. “There is only room for champions of freedom.”
The X Factor
I get it. Right now, the narrative is Putin bad, Zelensky good. Even I changed my mind about Zelensky when I saw him willing to stand in the streets and fight alongside his countrymen. I love the idea of “lead by example.” But at the end of the day, Zelensky is still a leftist. And Putin is, well, Putin.
The problem for Pence is that Trump had Putin in check. Were Americans buying Russian oil by the billions of barrels during Trump’s administration? Nope. Still, the Russian president didn’t dare invade anyone. One would think Biden’s deep pocket payouts would garner more influence. But at the end of the day, Putin smelled blood in the water. And he knew there was a wienie in the White House.
Why is this a problem for Pence? Because he’s lackluster, at best. Sure, he looks the part of polished politician. And he seems like a fairly nice man. However, Pence doesn’t exude leadership. In fact, when push came to shove, Pence backed down. This man had the opportunity to stand tall on January 6th. But that’s not what happened. History won’t soon forget Pence’s problematic performance. Which begs the question- will Pence’s message truly affect Democrats sitting on the fence? Or will he be seen as nothing more than Trump’s little b*tch?
