“We made clear that we were not involved. Had nothing to do with it.” That was Joe Biden on June 26, addressing himself to the strange series of events that had just transpired in Russia. Two days earlier, aggrieved culinary warlord Yevgeny Prigozhin and his merry for-profit band of Wagner Group fighters had been persuaded to abort their haphazard “armed rebellion,” as Vladimir Putin described it — but not before they effortlessly seized the Russian Defense Ministry, then advanced unimpeded to the perimeter of Moscow.
glad to have this hit my inbox. the world can use some more mtracey.
Great article. Loved the term "culinary warlord", which I would cheerfully steal if I thought I could get away with it. The whole mutiny makes no sense ... and why the FBI is involved ia anybody's guess. I presume the FBI got bored chasing down angry PTA parents and are leery of the cartel agents infiltrating the country. The PTA parents are too easy, but those cartel guys are vicious! What is really weird in my mind is how quickly the woke liberals follow in step behind their leaders. Opera lovers and big donors to the Met discovered overnight that they could not tolerate any more appearances by Anna Netrebko, one of her generation's best sopranos and near the end of career, because ... Russia, you know. So much for the arts being above politics, and so much for looking for common ground.
Thanks for the article. I too, thought it was strange Biden popped off with the Sgt. Schultz "not me" comment. Glad to see you spreading truth again. I hope you are well.
Great to get this Michael. And I've really enjoyed your analysis on Twitter of the recent big Supreme Court decisions.
'Unfortunately for those who might’ve been curious how Biden purported to “know” such a thing with such certainty, none of the journalists on hand attempted to elicit any elaboration."
Fab line that fits every issue of substance in memory but the corp presstitutes don't deserve to be called journalists w/o the most basic principles mythology of adversarial press is built.
Makes me love you even more! <3
It’s good to have Michael Tracy back. He is speaking truth to power. Clearly corporate media has sold out, so Kremlinology is the order of the day.
Glad you're back. More like this.
Biden and his handlers continue to push us closer to a nuclear interchange. Brilliant.
Given the collective media aghastitude over the Wagner group's savage methods in Ukraine, it will be fascinating to watch all the pundit double-takes if it's confirmed that Prigozhin was a key US asset destabilizing Russian leadership. He'll be hailed as a hero and no doubt will earn a prominent spot among CNN's paid spook analysts if he can manage to learn a little third-grade English.
The only thing that's been 'weakened' by the Russians or Putin himself, is any doubt about the intentions of the U.S. War machine.
