Biden Panders To BLM, Ignores An American In Need

An interesting action and  cotinued inaction by President Biden today.

In the case of Brittney Griner, the anti-American WNBA player who refuses to show up for the National Anthem being played before the game  and claims America is systemically racist has been clamoring for America to get her out of the mess she's made when she was arrested in Russia for bringing drugs into the country and been imprisoned for five months pending trial.

Biden has made a point of contacting and speaking with her family.

But, in the case of Paul Whelan however, who has been imprisoned in Russia for three and a half years while being accused of being an American spy - a charge he and the US government both absolutely deny. In his case, Biden has been silent and has not bothered to contact his family at all.

Quite an interesting disparity in treatment.

In one case you have a woke person who admits to having illegally brought drugs into a country where they are banned,  and has now pled guilty to drug charges in Russia, and Biden is all for her and reaches out to her family.

In the other case an innocent businessman is being imprisoned on trumped-up charges of espionage for political games and Biden says nothing.

That silence speaks volumes.

The correct spelling is "bLM"
Fake cheating poopypants (p)Resident will give all of the luxury yachts back in exchange for a worthless WNBA player.
This will be another win for Putin.

Joe has people locked up he doesn't agree with. He can't exactly deal from the high ground on this issue.

There is no high ground for Joe.

Pandering to the base...

Slightly off topic. I am constantly amazed at the number of Americans, who think that drug laws in foreign countries are the same as back home and then end up in jail or prison with none of the protections of the accused enjoy in the USA. They just don't comprehend that possession of a couple ounces of weed will get them 10 years or more in a prison much harsher than U.S ones.
