Conflicting Reports of USA War

RT reports:
The US didn’t provide Ukraine with intelligence that allegedly allowed it to strike Russia’s Black Sea flagship Moskva off the coast of Odessa last month, Pentagon press-secretary John Kirby has said, in a statement to media.

He was reacting to a report by the NBC on Thursday, claiming that American officials had helped Kiev's forces to target the vessel.

“The Ukrainians have their own intelligence capabilities to track and target Russian naval vessels, as they did in this case,” Kirby said.

Russia insists that its missile cruiser wasn’t attacked, but sank on April 14 after a fire that had broken out on board caused the detonation of ammunition. One sailor was confirmed killed and 27 others are missing as a result of the incident, while 396 other crew members were safely evacuated.

I don't trust RT, or Russia's explanation of the Moskva. But why were American officials bragging about committing an act of war? Or were NBC News and the NY Times lying to us, and hiding behind anonymous sources?

It does appear that the Biden administration, the Deep State, most Democrats, and many Republicans are eager for war with Russia.

And now the Biden spokesman is a Black lesbian immigrant. I did not think that they would find someone worse than Jen Psaki. Here is how she reacted to Supreme Court Justice harassment:

Doocy pressed her once more, "So he doesn’t care if they’re protesting outside the Supreme Court or outside someone’s private residence?"

"I don’t have an official U.S. government position on where people protest," she said, adding, "We want it, of course, to be peaceful" and Biden "would want people’s privacy to be respected."

Psaki then concluded with some serious sympathy with the protesters’ cause: "But I think we shouldn’t lose the point here. The reason people are protesting is because women across the country are worried about their fundamental rights that have been law for fifty years.

"Their rights to make choices about their own bodies and their own healthcare are at risk. That’s why people are protesting. They’re unhappy, they’re scared," she added.

It is interesting to compare the treatment of pro-democracy protesters with anti-democracy ones. The Jan. 6 protesters just wanted a fair election. The leaked Alito opnion says that elected officials, not judges, should determine abortion law. The protesters that Psaki encourages are criminals who seek to force their beliefs on others, contrary to acts of voters and legislatures.

The NY Times reports:

Five of the last six presidents talked about healing America’s divide without much success. ...

Mr. Trump, of course, was the presidential outlier, the only occupant of the Oval Office in modern times who hardly even paid lip service to the notion of bringing the country together. Instead, he relentlessly promoted divisions, seeking to punish Democratic-voting states and describing Blue America as a dystopian hellhole for which he had no responsibility.

This is lunacy. Biden has prosecuted his political enemies. Trump never did that. Biden is the one who is always denouncing his opponents as bigots and extremists.
