With Reports of Russia Attacking a Nuclear Reactor, Biden Sends His A-Team to Poland, and His A-Team Is...

No this can't possibly be right
Kamala Harris?! AGAIN?!

Update: The State Department is backing off reports about an attack on the nuke facility:

Natasha Bertrand @NatashaBertrand The State Department sent an urgent message to all US embassies in Europe telling them not to retweet the below tweet from the US Embassy in Kyiv, per @kylieatwood ... "If you have retweeted it -- un-retweet it ASAP," said the message, reviewed by CNN.

It is a war crime to attack a nuclear power plant. Putin's shelling of Europe's largest nuclear plant takes his reign of terror one step further. #TheHague #Zaporizhzhia #StandwithUkraine

So the US embassy bit on this false report and the State Department now has to issue a correction and tell other embassies to not retweet it or un-retweet it.

I suppose they might just be saying the "shelling" part is false. There is video of what seems to be some kind of small arms fire at the (or "a") facility.

...

IAEA - International Atomic Energy Agency @iaeaorg

#Ukraine: IAEA is aware of reports of shelling at #Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant (NPP), in contact with Ukrainian authorities about situation.

Fortunately, it seems okay for now:

The museum was hit. No actual threat for now. Radiation levels around are stable

Video:



Update: DaveA. and Diogenes both say that is clearly an illumination flare, not a missile. I don't know if that means the reports of the attacks were baseless, or if this video is just mischaracterized. It seems to me you would use a flare during some kind of an attack, usually. The IAEA did say they had received reports. But that isn't the same as confirming reports.

So that's alarming. Now, there was a claim made, which was very alarming. I'll share it, but bear in mind, the first reports are always wrong, and also keep in mind that that whole conflict is just nonstop propaganda from all sides.

I hate Putin, but the Ukranians are mounting a propaganda war that would make the Iraqi soldiers who threw the Kuwati babies out of their incubators on to the hospital floors weep over the sheer cruelty of it all.*

A very successful propaganda campaign too, because, if you can believe this, the US propaganda press is eagerly pushing the propaganda of the side it favors.

I know, crazy right?!

Anyway, here is the very alarming claim made about the firing on the Ukranian nuclear reactor. But for now, consider it just alarmism or propaganda. (For now.)

@alisdklaa Replying to @fraufrasl @ZelenskyyUa


Russian army is firing from all sides upon Zaporizhzhia NPP, the largest nuclear power plant in Europe. Fire has already broke out. If it blows up, it will be 10 times larger than Chornobyl! Russians must IMMEDIATELY cease the fire, allow firefighters, establish a security zone!

As far as propaganda from Putin: Did you know he's fighting this war because he's very alarmed by rising Naziism within Ukraine? Yup! He's just really worried about a growing Nazi and White Supremacy movement in the Ukraine and he decided he had to be the Anti-Fascist Hero to step up and finally do something about all these damn Nazis everywhere, man.

Russian President Vladimir Putin invoked World War II to justify Russia's invasion of Ukraine, saying in televised remarks last week that his offensive aimed to "denazify" the country -- whose democratically elected president is Jewish, and lost relatives in the Holocaust.

"The purpose of this operation is to protect people who for eight years now have been facing humiliation and genocide perpetrated by the Kyiv regime," he said, according to an English translation from the Russian Mission in Geneva. "To this end, we will seek to demilitarize and denazify Ukraine, as well as bring to trial those who perpetrated numerous bloody crimes against civilians, including against citizens of the Russian Federation."

So much genocide, Vlad. So much genocide we haven't seen an image of cell phone photography of it.

In fact, we haven't even heard of it until right now, when you just said it.

Interesting, though, that Putin's propaganda tracks exactly with... Joe Biden's and the American media's.

And Trudeau's.

And the DOJ's. And the entire Western Ruling Class's.

Weird that no one in the American Propaganda Media makes that connection, huh? About how very easy it is to falsely brand your enemies "Nazis" and then set the government and institutions and woke corporations after them like slavering dogs?

I don't really care about Ukranian propaganda or even Russian propaganda so much. Truth is the first casualty of war and all that.

I hate American propaganda. I hate the leftwing propaganda media's propaganda.

Anyway, I just bring that up to set the mood. The mood is serious.

And who do you send in when things get serious?

That's right, you send in Kamala Harris, who someone has failed to position for success in all twelve of her last assignments but hey, thirteen is a lucky number, right?!


The White House is actively discussing sending Vice President Harris to Warsaw, Poland, and Bucharest, Romania, in the coming days to show solidarity with Ukraine as it faces an escalating Russian invasion, sources familiar with the conversations tell The Hill.

The discussions involve sending Harris to visit troops stationed in Romania and potentially to the border with Ukraine, where a refugee crisis has seen more than 1 million people flee that country since the Russian attack.

The trip could happen in the coming weeks, one source said, adding that there is no active dialogue about sending President Biden to the region.

"A presidential visit is a heavier logistical lift," the source said.

Also he's decrepit and might die if someone breathes on him from the wrong angle.

Also his condition is what doctors call "Ambulatory Retarded" and the very sight of him would only sap the morale of the West.

"The vice president has a smaller footprint and is historically more nimble."

The vice president's office declined to comment on Harris's travel plans. But a White House official said Harris has been "deeply involved in the administration's engagement with allies and partners."

Ahem.

Let me interrupt right here to show an example of that "deep involvement in the administration's engagement with allies and partners."

Fffffuck you NeverTrump for doing this, and then blaming the five-alarm nuclear crisis you've put us in on the rest of us.

Harris -- who recently returned from the Munich Security Conference -- spoke this week to Poland's prime minister and Romania's prime minister as well as other leaders from European allies to discuss the response to Russia's invasion. An official said those talks were meant "to underscore the strength and unity of our alliance.

"You can expect the vice president will continue to engage with allies and partners on these issues," the official said.

The only way her "engagement" is going to make a lick of difference to our foreign allies is if it's the sort of engagement she has been famous for the rest of her professional career, the engagement in which she gets down on her knees and invites a suitor to enjoy her throatsnizz.

Tucker Carlson talks about the "Serious People" leading our country, and sending the very serious Kamala Harris to go and stop World War III:


* If you're too young or too innocent to get this reference, members of the Kuwaiti royal family posed as rando hospital workers and gave testimony that Iraqi soldiers dumped babies on to the floor in hospitals to gin up support for the Gulf War. This was absurd propaganda, cooked up by Kuwaiti intelligence, with, I'm pretty sure, some assistance from US intelligence. Another US intelligence psyop directed at the US population. Pretty much the only covert operation they're any good at. They sure get a lot of practice at 'em.
