As America-Hating Brittney Griner Heads Off To A Russian Penal Colony, A Look At What Life Will Be Like

If Griner had been caught with less than an ounce of cannabis oil in the U.S., depending upon which state she was in, she might not have even received a summons. If she had been detained, she would have undoubtedly been allowed to post bail, and in some states they would have simply released her with no bail. But in Russia, Griner was arrested last winter, thrown in a prison outside of Moscow, and she has not drawn a breath of free air since.

Watch: Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters DEMOLISHES Joe Biden, Slams Him As “War Criminal” In Stunning CNN Interview

But ultimately, Roger Waters should just be quiet on politics. You want to lecture us in your song lyrics, that’s one thing. But just because you’ve been blessed with immense talent doesn’t mean we care about your politics. Even if we happen to agree with Roger Waters this time around, we should be consistent in rejecting the very idea of rock stars and other celebrities standing in their pulpits to preach their politics to us.

Crushed: Brittney Griner’s Painful Reaction After Devastating Guilty Verdict And Stiff Sentence

If she had been accused of a similar infraction here in the U.S., Griner would probably be shooting baskets at this very moment instead of rotting in a cell. She would likely have a crack staff of overpaid American lawyers exploiting every loophole of our criminal code, and she’d be free to criticize our country to her heart’s content. So, Brittney, maybe it’s time to revisit some of that anti-Americanism of yours. Maybe, just maybe, America isn’t so bad after all.

Guilty! America-Hating Brittney Griner Convicted By Russian Court, Handed Severe Sentence

Ultimately, as mentioned, Griner has become little more than a political pawn in a high-stakes game of chess. The Biden Administration has been highly critical of Vladimir Putin’s Russia and his decision to go to war with Ukraine. The U.S. has subsequently engaged in aiding the Ukrainians and applying stiff, economic sanctions on Russia. The relationship between Russia and the U.S. is at its worst point in over thirty years, which is a bad time to get caught smuggling weed into Moscow.

Every Country For Itself! Backlash To Globalist Elites Is Raging, And So Is The Rise Of Nationalism

Of course, Europe is suddenly a magnificent mess with governments falling like duck pins, industry shuttered from lack of fuel, and citizens rising up against insane WEF diktats to drastically reduce livestock and shut down farming — in effect declaring food production an unacceptable environmental hazard. This, of course, after the governments of Euroland cut their own throats by self-sanctioning themselves out of Russian oil and nat gas

Tennis Great Weighs In On “Ridiculous” Vaccine Mandates And Other Political Topics

This past winter, officials running the Australian Open made global headlines with their decision to ban the aforementioned Serbian star Novak Djokovic due to his refusal to abide by the Aussie’s requirement that all players be fully “vaccinated” with the COVID-19 jabs. Now there is speculation that U.S. Open officials might follow a similar path. And McEnroe is having none of it.

Do You Miss America Yet? What Life Behind Bars In Russia Is Like For America-Hating Brittney Griner

Unfortunately for Brittney Griner, there’s not much Biden or anyone else in the U.S. can do. Russia is a sovereign country with their own criminal justice system, and Griner broke their laws. That’s it. They don’t make exceptions just because your famous, or because of your skin color or sexual preferences. That’s not how it works. Which again brings us our dilemma: Should we feel sorry for Griner and support calls for Biden or others to do something to bring her home?

The Collapse Of The European Union: Ignition… Lift Off

Perhaps the non-elites of Europe have realized that they were played for chumps. (They were.) They went along with the “vaccine” mandates only to learn now that their countrymen are dropping dead at suspiciously alarming rates, and maybe it has something to do with those shots they lined up for so obediently. And they can see the vast loss of jobs and income ahead as their industries have to shut down for lack of fuel.

Breaking! Brittney Griner Pleads Guilty; America-Hating Basketball Star Faces A Decade In Russian Prison

But even with those blessings, Griner had been highly critical and disrespectful of her homeland prior to her arrest last winter. She refused to even enter sports arenas until after our National Anthem was played. She trashed our country’s institutions while preaching about imaginary systemic injustices. So, when she was arrested by a truly oppressive government five months ago, many of us were unable to feel any concern and instead marveled at the irony.

“Terrified” Brittney Griner Begs Biden And America For Help As Russian Drug Trial Begins

Putin knows Biden is weak, as evidenced by Biden’s pathetic withdrawal from Afghanistan last summer, a debacle that undoubtedly emboldened Putin to invade Ukraine in the first place. Biden has led from behind but has been fully supportive of sanctions and other efforts to oppose Putin. And Mr. Biden blames Putin for just about everything bad in the world, from unfavorable election results to skyrocketing gas prices.

New German Chancellor Encapsulates Ignorance Of Leftism In Just One Interview

For as long as there have been people, there have been individuals or groups that have attempted to seize territory; to improve the lives and standards of living of their citizenry. There is virtually no morsel of land anywhere across the globe that hasn’t been fought over with spilled blood at some point in history. And as much as leftists would like to ignore this truth, there stands reality, staring them square in the face.

Russian Trial Of America-Hating Brittney Griner Begins… And Her Prospects Look Increasingly Bleak

But neither Brittney Griner, her attorneys, nor Elizabeth Rood get a vote in determining what constitutes a crime in Russia. They also have no say in the structuring of Russia’s penal code: which, by the way, could put Griner behind bars for ten years. Those tasks fall on the Russian people. And the fact that Griner apparently couldn’t be bothered to respect Russia’s drug laws, despite how much she may have disagreed with them, indicates just how naïve she is.

Are Putin And Xi Gray Champions? (Part 2)

In theory, I understood this Fourth Turning would ultimately lead to a bloody global conflict, but a few years into this Crisis I didn’t visualize a scenario that would lead to such an outcome. Each Fourth Turning has seen an exponential increase in deaths, as the killing technology has improved. There were approximately 65 million deaths during World War II, with Russia incurring 27 million of those deaths.

Are Putin And Xi Gray Champions?

This brings us to two men who weren’t in my thought process during the first thirteen years of this Crisis as potential Gray Champions. I suffer the same myopia as many others, viewing the world through the lens of living within the American Empire. Of course, America is no longer the shining city on the hill, if it ever was.

America-Hating WNBA Player Brittney Griner’s Russian Nightmare Goes From Bad To Worse

The Biden Administration has denounced Griner’s detainment. Many on the left have come to her defense and demanded her release. But those demands have fallen on deaf ears because Griner isn’t in America, the country she loves to disrespect. She’s in Russia, which isn’t as understanding and open-minded to substances such as cannabis. Russia never got the memo that they should go soft on substance abuse and recreational marijuana.

This Little Pig Built a House Out of Straw… And Oil

And, sadly, as in farming, the energy bureaucrats have regulators and bureaucrats who don’t know the difference between a barrel of oil and a barrel of buckwheat batter.  It is as if Bonnie and Clyde were noted as insightful and thorough bank examiners. B &C didn’t help the banks. They helped themselves to the banks. And they sure as hell didn’t care how many lives were ruptured or lost.
