The world map of Biden “recognitions” is quite instructive.

No surprise that the core BlueGov-aligned vassals are tripping over themselves to congratulate and celebrate, happy at the prospect of the gushing service they are preparing to mete out as opposed to their sullen compliance during the Trump years.

More notable, though less remarkable if you think about it, has been the defection of the “RedGov” protectorates despite their obvious preference for Trump.

But their security is ultimately too tightly bound up with the US to play too obvious a part in their internal factional disputes.

But hey, at least the US Embassy was moved to Jerusalem and Israel recognized Kosovo, so hopefully the anguished MAGA boomers and “Pray for Israel” evangelicals populating the replies to Bibi’s Tweet can take solace in that.

Expecting loyalty and gratitude from svidomy, LOL.

Even “Trump of the Tropics” Bolsonaro appears to be throwing in the towel, now observing that Trump is not the most important person in the world.

***

Who is holding out on offering premature congratulations:

RedGov-aligned Eastern Europeans:

Amusingly, Mexico:

Perhaps Trumperino shouldn’t have been so hard on the bad hombres.

And, unsurprisingly, Russia and China.

While Russia obviously has a greater stake in Trump whereas China has a greater stake in Biden, the dissolution of political unity in the US is something that benefits both far more.

    This is assuming that Trump had something to do with his administration’s policy. If they instead credit it to some deep-state bureaucrat who they assume is thinking “I’m so sorry we elected this dumb prole,” (because that’s what they’ve no doubt heard from at least a few American officials) then sending congratulations seems like gratitude. They also might observe how much loyalty Trump showed to his own supporters, people like Darren Beattie, and conclude that none is owed to him anyway.

    I can’t tell whether Modi is being pragmatic, or super-cucked.

    I am leaning towards the latter though. (“vibrant”) If he is counting on the half-blood of Harris, to bias her to show special favor towards India in the future, then it seems superfluous to publicly promote miscegenation, before Indians, and unnecessary to stroke her pride. I mean what, is she going to give all her attention to Jamaica? Land of her father who abandoned her. No, I say, her pride will call her to the filthy streets of India because India is a bigger, higher-status country.

    But maybe Modi is just playing for time, until he can get a full-blooded Indian into the Oval Office. Perhaps, he feels Kamala is only a means to that end, and Haley is his goal.

    Kamala Harris is most definitely more connected to her Indian side as her Jamaican father divorced her Indian mother when Kamala was quite young and it was her mother who brought her up. She also visited India numerous times when she was young with her mother (Tamil Nadu I believe)

    I was very shocked when I learned that Nikki Haley was pure Indian. That being said, I would reckon that as far as dual-loyalties are concerned, someone like Kamala Harris will be more prone to them (did I mention Harris is married to a Jew as well?) than Haley simply because the latter just seems more Americanised, as I said earlier, most people couldn’t tell that she is foreign, she looks like a tanned Southerner, so perhaps this has lead to her having less qualms about her American (see White) identity?

    US-Mexicans relations under Trump have actually been quite good, and Trump and AMLO built a good relationship.

    https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2020-10-30/trump-talks-up-his-amlo-ties-in-bid-to-trim-biden-s-latino-lead

    The billionaire struck up a surprisingly close relationship with leftist AMLO, a veteran campaigner who earned his political stripes promoting indigenous rights in his rural home state of Tabasco. In the interview, Trump talked up his work on the border with Lopez Obrador and called their relationship “incredible.”

    AMLO, who wrote a tough-talking book called “Listen, Trump” before winning election in 2018, has since acquiesced to the leader’s demands to slow immigration, deploying his national guard to stop Central Americans crossing Mexico’s southern border. In return, Mexico has avoided the kinds of tariffs Trump slapped on other U.S. trade competitors. AMLO met with the Republican at the White House in July; that meeting was highlighted in a Trump campaign ad in August.

    The USMCA was intended to harm the Mexican automotive assembly industry by mandating that at least two-fifths of assembly be completed by workers earning at least $16/hr (i.e. US and Canadian workers), but the response of the automotive industry thus far has mainly been to increase wages in Mexico rather than abandon their extensive investments.

    I would say it depends on the lighting, and the picture. I wonder whether they could use a filter sometimes, to make her look less Indian? Her parents look Indian. Her children definitely look Indian, and her husband (who is white) even looks a bit Indian. Interestingly, she is a Sikh. But, as we all know, Sikh pols in the West are pretty anti-white.

    I’m not sure that there are any Indian pols in the West who don’t have supra-loyalty to Indians. I’d rather the Chinese installed some strong man. He might have supra-Chinese loyalty, but I think the appeal of the West is limited to the Chinese, at least, when compared to Indians, at the moment. And, given the current situation, and current displays of Indian pols, I appreciate Chinese antagonisms.

    Harris is definitely viler than Haley, because she would play to blacks more, and is probably descended from worse people, but I’m not sure that it isn’t better to put a miscegenated face on things, with the vile attitude on display, for all.

    In the above photo of her next to Romney, she doesn’t seem too dark or have any features that would give her away. You are right about her husband, he too doesn’t look Anglo. Initially I thought Haley was some Meztizo, I had her pegged as a non-Anglo White in any case.

    I think all visibly foreign people have dual loyalties at best and single loyalties (not to the country which they are elected in) at worst.

    Israel came through in 2016, blocking the vote-fraud software that the Dem machine uses through their back-doors. At least that is my take on it. Since then the mail-in voting has made election security almost impossible (when the GOP establishment and media look the other way anyhow), but I have to wonder if Israel also played a role. Certainly Trump seemed very angry on election night, though he expected fraud on a massive level. My guess is that he really though they wouldn’t be bold enough to rig an election that he was winning in a landslide.

    Unbalanced Michael McFaul

    The below linked RT piece adds balance to what Michael McFaul left out. In addition, Biden (as well as McFaul) have said some negatively inaccurate things against Russia.

    Did McFaul have anything to say about Putin’s not too distant comment, saying there didn’t seem to be anything wrong with what Hunter Biden did in Ukraine? (An actual matter having to do with Joe Biden.)

    Was Putin being cute? He’s IMO mistaken, if he believes that will curry favor with Biden. Putin’s comment can also be seen as supporting a society with extreme instances of nepotism.

    As I mentioned further up this thread, there’s a possible Carteresque stance in the form of Biden likely talking tough and doing some idiotic things related to Russia, while being agreeable to a nuke arms reduction.

    Here is my expert anonymous shitposter prediction:

    Donald Trump will loudly talk and tweet about fraud for few days, max week or two, then concede.
    Joe (or Kamala) will end in the White House, the election results will not be reversed.
    Donald Trump or any of his family members will not end in prison, will not flee abroad, will not be prosecuted in any meaningful way.
    Donald Trump will spend next few years loudly talking how he was cheated and how Joe and Kamala suck.
    2020 election truth debate will be the 911 Truth debate for 2020’s. Afterwards, everyone will forget about the whole thing.
    When there is next Republican president, he/she/they/zir/xir will be designated as new target of world wide hate, and Donald Trump will be rehabilitated.
    Everyone will talk what great statesman he was, how succesful, presidential and dignified he was in comparison to the REAL HITLER sitting in the White House now.

    This is my take.

    @Mikhail

    Actually Trump did far more against Russia than, let say, Obama. The retard did everything possible to start a new Cold War with Russia, China and Iran.

    https://www.globalresearch.ca/trump-hellbent-provoking-new-cold-war/5725187

    Trump’s famous promise to “Make America Great Again” (MAGA) should have come with the caveat that he planned to do so by provoking a New Cold War with China and Russia. He led his supporters into thinking that he meant to focus more on internal issues than international ones, which some in hindsight wrongly portrayed as quasi-isolationalism. Lo and behold, however, MAGA has arguably turned into the most aggressive US foreign policy in decades, which makes it extremely dangerous for global stability.

    Truth be told, Trump did imply something of the sort while on the campaign trail, but few realized how far he intended to go. He’s known for ranting about China’s trade policies so many foresaw the trade war that followed his election, but the scale and scope of his anti-Chinese policies likely surprised even the most rabid anti-communist elements of his base.

    Since the beginning of this year, he’s also ridiculously claimed that China is responsible for COVID-19. Secretary of State Pompeo rattled the US Hybrid War saber earlier this summer during his landmark speech at the Nixon Library, which was followed up by Trump’s dramatic address to the UN General Assembly (UNGA) last week that compared China to Nazi Germany. So serious are US-Chinese tensions as a result of this unprovoked onslaught that UN Secretary General Guterres opened the UNGA debate by warning against a “New Cold War”.

    It’s not just China that’s victimized by Trump’s MAGA strategy but Russia as well despite Trump’s opponents continuing to claim that he’s under the influence of Moscow. He once bragged about how “I have been FAR tougher on Russia than Obama, Bush or Clinton. Maybe tougher than any other President”, pointing to his intense sanctions regime against the country that he once promised on the campaign trail to partner with. NATO has also expanded its military forces and infrastructure closer to Russia’s borders during this time too.

    On top of that, the Trump Administration has been accused by Russia and Belarus of orchestrating the latest political unrest in the latter, and is also currently trying to assemble a coalition against Russia’s Nord Stream II pipeline with Germany. Russia’s Turkish Stream pipeline with Turkey and the Balkans is also being threatened as well. Not only that, but anti-Russian spy scandals are a dime a dozen nowadays in the US and its NATO allies, which serve the purpose of creating pretexts for imposing even more sanctions pressure on Moscow.

    There’s a method to this madness, however, and it’s important to point it out in order to expose the truth about how Trump’s MAGA strategy operates. The three most common denominators linking the US’ Hybrid Wars on China and Russia are geopolitics, economics, and fake news. America wants to “contain” both countries, to which end it’s increased its military presence in the South China Sea and Eastern Europe respectively, while targeting BRI, Chinese tech companies, and Russian energy ones using fake news.

    The Trump Administration believes that the combined effect of these three simultaneous Hybrid War fronts against what it regards as its two main rivals will result in “decoupling” them from their primary partners across the world, thereby leading to their “isolation”. As a means to that end, the US is provoking a New Cold War, the acknowledgement of which debunks the notion that MAGA is a “peaceful”, “inward-looking”, “isolationist” strategy. To the contrary, it’s the most aggressive and dangerous US foreign policy in decades.

    For as optimistic as Trump is about its prospects of success, the deck is stacked against him. The world wised up to his scheme over the past three years, especially after Presidents Xi and Putin condemned unilateralism, trade wars, and saber-rattling during their speeches last week at the UNGA. Their countries are also close strategic partners who are coordinating their response to the US Hybrid Wars against them. With China and Russia standing up to America, Trump’s realizing that MAGA is much easier to shout than to actualize in real life.

    This is one of the reasons he got destroyed. He made too many enemies with everyone, everywhere. Making everybody an enemy is the dumbest strategy possible.

    The only chance for retarded low IQ US whites are Russia, China and Iran. But they were too stupid and too animalistic to realise that and started to lash out at anything that isn’t a total US puppet. Started trying to prop up the empire that will eat them later.

    I’m not surprised that jews keep you on a tight leash. You are dumb, but also aggressive animals that need to be controlled and have their teeth taken away.

    The only thing that could stop a liberal take over of the world is Eurasia. The West is gone and the white retards haven’t even realised it, lashing out at other countries for not being US puppets – that is – for not being puppets to the same force that is destroying the retarded US whites.

    I disagree about them hating on the new Republican President. Unless they vote for someone who is a real Trumper, chances are the GOP are going to want to play it “safe” (I.e they don’t want another Trump incident again) and select someone who has a few Trumpian sound bytes but is overall just another Jeb Bush sort of figure. I think Tom Cotton would fit this role quite nicely.

    Trump was a revolution. They do not like it and will be damn sure its never repeated, even if they haven to pacify the mob. Plus we also have to remember that Trumpism itself is on borrowed time. It is mainly a blue collar affair with older baby boomers who want their “old country” back. I think the vast majority of white collar millennials zealously defend the establishment or simply do not care, hence why most went to Biden.

    Dem party, with no real opposition, will fracture into two (at least), and become the new two party system – one faction wanting full steam ahead communism, the other wanting to slow-walk it (the latter will take the place of the old GOP, becoming the new “conservative” Washington Generals to the progressive Harlem Globetrotters).

    The US will lose so much standing in the world it will no longer be the focus of world-wide hate, being merely a Chinese vassal state so not worth the effort and energy. Either Putin, or some visegrad up and comer will take the role of being the “new” Hitler.

    Any conclusive confirmation on the RFE/RL referenced claim of what Biden supposedly said to Putin? Biden has a bombastic history of trying to come across as a tough guy. If Biden indeed said such, then Putin has even more good reason to not feel so obligated to congratulate him. Like Biden can really kick Putin’s ass and outwit him.

    Perhaps Western MSM should simply declare Navalny as the new leader in Russia, just like they have declared Biden as “president elect “?

    I am sure that John Brennan would approve…

    Probably a moot point, because Azerbaijan has won. Plan calls for current territory to be kept, plus additional withdrawals by Armenian forces and concomitant loss of territory, with Russian peacekeepers in place.

  57. Good news! Donald Trump was recognized as true President by Pope.
    Not the Masonic Zionist antipope and impostor in Vatican, but actual, real and true Pope Boniface X!

  58. Looks like Pompeo is supporting Trump. This is pretty surprising since Pompeo is typically aligned with establishment neocons.

    Trump traded diplomatic favors for business favors.

    Pompeo is thinking of future Republican primaries.

    I agree with you. Trump’s rabid anti-China and anti-Russia antics only strengthens the liberals. Meanwhile his poor handling of the Coronavirus pandemic at home (not that the Democrats would have handled it any better if they were in power), especially with all his non-scientific rants, were easy targets for the Democrats and liberals.
    The West (ie USA and Western Europe) is a basket case, there is no turning the tide of complete takeover by liberals and population replacement by Latinos in the USA and by Africans(Sub-Saharan)plus Muslim people – groups in the case of Western Europe.
    For countries in Eastern Europe now within EU, China and other countries in Asia, and Russia, their chances of survival from this dismal future depend on whether they can resist liberalism long enough till the true bad effects of liberalism are completely evident in the West in the form of civilizational collapse.

    The liberal elites in power in the US and her allies are resilient. How many have predicted imminent economic collapse or societal chaos as a consequence of their policies, yet none happened. Instead we see US and EU soft power in action – influence of ‘pro democracy’ on the minds of youth in Eastern Europe, Hong Kong etc. I do think that liberal policies will ultimately lead to loss of status and economic might of US and the EU but it will not be in the very near future, perhaps not in Putin’s or Xi’s tenure even. Instead, China and Russia will be under assault by a West that is increasingly controlled by liberal/progressive elites. I think leaders from both these countries know that, none of them are in any mood for a swift Biden congratulatory message.
