With Joe Biden declared president-elect by a chorus of major networks in unison on Saturday, the same mainstream media has suddenly dropped any notion of ‘Russian interference’ in the election which for years had received wall to wall coverage.
Over the weekend an MSNBC host went so far as to declare without evidence “This might be the cleanest election we have ever had.” And conveniently apart from the ‘sudden’ unprecedented leap in vaccine development and with markets soaring on the news, the foreign policy “wins” are conveniently pouring in even before Biden enters the White House on January 20.
As a case in point NATO’s official message of congratulations to Joe Biden and Kamala Harris underscored that a Biden White House will finally be able to confront “assertive Russia” according to a statement by Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg.
“I warmly welcome the election of Joe Biden as the next President of the United States. I know Mr. Biden as a strong supporter of NATO and the transatlantic relationship,” Stoltenberg’s written statement began.
And here’s where the NATO chief referenced “assertive Russia” and the “rise of China”:
“We need this collective strength to deal with the many challenges we face, including a more assertive Russia, international terrorism, cyber and missile threats, and a shift in the global balance of power with the rise of China,” Stoltenberg stated….
What would we do without the “international order” of continuous war and terror?
