NATO-Ready Sweden Gets Security Guarantee from USA

This is a huge detriment to Putin’s stated goals in the region.

Published

Moscow’s miscalculations during this invasion of Ukraine will likely go down in history as some of the biggest diplomatic and military blunders that the modern world has ever seen, and with each passing day this becomes truer.

First and foremost, there’s the actual war on the ground, in which the Russian army has looked rather inept…to say the least.  In fact, morale is so low among the Kremlin’s fighting force that several have been caught shooting themselves in the leg with Ukrainian ammunition in order to get sent home from the front lines.

But then there are the dunce-like diplomatic dirges that have arisen from the conflict, including the expansion of NATO in Europe – something that Vladimir Putin has been railing against for decades.

To make matters worse for Russia, the US is now providing security guarantees to nations who are considering joining the organization…something that will certainly get the Kremlin’s attention.

Sweden and Finland are starting to win assurances of help if threatened by Russia in the interim period between an expected application to join defense alliance NATO and an eventual entry.

The two Nordic countries, which began to seriously consider joining the North Atlantic Treaty Organization after Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, have worried of an insecure “gray period” on the doorstep of the bloc, before full membership unlocks its collective security guarantees. Russia has repeatedly warned both with potential consequences.

The scope of those guarantee was still vague at this moment.

The U.S. is “ready to provide various forms of security assurances” to both countries, Swedish Foreign Minister Ann Linde said on Wednesday after talks with Secretary of State Antony Blinken in Washington, D.C., according to public broadcaster SVT. Finland is expected to apply for entry before May 17, while Sweden’s stance is less clear.

Putin has long considered NATO one of the only forces in the world with the might to directly compete with Russia, but given what we’ve seen so far in Ukraine, those estimations of his army’s abilities may have been largely overblown.

EEK ELON! Musk Sexual Assault Story Comes to Light Ahead of Twitter Deal

Musk claims that the story was a “politically-motivated hit piece”.

Just as Elon Musk was set to make an unprecedented mark on the social media landscape, his proverbial train has been derailed.

Musk, who has been bickering with Twitter over their phony user data, was set to drop $44 billion on the deal, when he was suddenly sideswiped by a SpaceX-related sexual assault allegation.

SpaceX CEO Elon Musk denied a sexual assault claim from a former flight attendant, whom the company reportedly paid $250,000 as part of a severance agreement in 2018.

Musk, in a Thursday tweet following the story, claimed the story should be “viewed through a political lens.”

The attendant worked on a contract basis in the cabin crew for SpaceX’s corporate jet fleet. She accused Musk of exposing his erect penis to her, rubbing her leg without consent, and offering to buy her a horse in exchange for an erotic massage, according to Business Insider.

It gets creepier…

A declaration signed by the attendant’s friend detailed the incident, which reportedly took place in 2016. Email correspondence and other records, which the friend provided Business Insider, reportedly corroborate the claims. The attendant reportedly told her friend that SpaceX encouraged her to get licensed as a masseuse, so she could give Musk massages. She said Musk propositioned her during one such massage.

Musk claimed that the story was a “politically-motivated hit piece”, and pointed to his decades of time in the public eye with no scandals as corroborating evidence of his alleged innocence.

NBC Finally Admits That Hunter Biden Laptop Story is Real

Objective journalism, this was not.

Published

on

NBC

The selective ambivalence of the mainstream media is just diet lies, we must always remember this.  It’s like poisoning a healthy cereal but only telling folks about the “essential vitamins and minerals”, leaving off the part about the cyanide.

So when the infotainment industry decides to simply ignore a story, arbitrarily, they are withholding the bigger, more important truth.  The full truth.

Such is the story of the Hunter Biden “laptop from Hell”, that the mainstream media wouldn’t talk about at all until Joe Biden was elected President.  To do so would cast doubt on his family’s ability to avoid nepotism and/or trouble, and may have swayed the 2020 election.

But now that there has been a significant amount of pressure put on them, they’re beginning to crack.

NBC News is the latest legacy news organization to offer delayed legitimacy to the Hunter Biden scandal after downplaying the revelations from his laptop during the 2020 presidential election.

NBC published a story Thursday headlined, “Analysis of Hunter Biden’s hard drive shows he, his firm took in about $11 million from 2013 to 2018, spent it fast,” citing documents showing the fortune he made while working for the Ukrainian energy company Burisma, as well as through his business ties to a Chinese energy company. It also aired a package about the story Wednesday on “NBC Nightly News,” its flagship evening program.

The report also highlighted some of Hunter Biden’s expenditures showing he “spent more than $200,000 per month from October 2017 through February 2018 on luxury hotel rooms, Porsche payments, dental work and cash withdrawals.”

And then:

“NBC News obtained a copy of Biden’s laptop hard drive from a representative of Rudy Giuliani and examined Biden’s business dealings from 2013 to 2018 based on the information available on the hard drive and the scope of the documents released by the Senate,” the report stated.

This new report flies in the face of how NBC News and its sister cable network MSNBC covered the Hunter Biden laptop’s contents when the story was broken by the New York Post in 2020.

Objective journalism, this was not, and our nation must continue to demand better, lest we wish to fall into the propaganda dystopia that nations such as China and Russia are dealing with.
