While we still have a Marine being held.
I was hoping they would keep her.
He’s not on TV, a sports star, or a politician…us normal citizens always take a back seat to them. They will move mountains to get a “famous” person out and leave you to rot.
Russia is more than likely playing an entirely different game with him, so yes, I do believe it. It doesn’t mean the U.S. is not working to get him home also.
Big difference between being accused of having some cannabis oil and being labeled as a spy.
Listen can you hear the other World Power Leaders laughing at Biden and America? Further China, Russia, and Iran are now planning to arrest or just kidnap Americans on their soil to use in exchange for their terrorist and criminals they would like to get from the custody of the US!
When I first heard this story, I couldn’t help but think that “prisoner exchange” was a phrase usually used by two nations at war.
I’m not so naïve as to think it never happens otherwise, but it still struck me as peculiar.
Most millennials know Griner but never heard of Thomas Sowell.
I think it was Orwell who wrote something about it.
That was my last straw, I’m done with these idiots!
So now we negotiate with terrorists? That are actively waging war!
The blood is on her hands from this day forward!
Give me one reason I should be a law abiding citizen?
Blood is boiling! Talk about racism! Yet there’s still a U.S. Marine still behind bars?
Someone please wake me from this nightmare! Or at least throw in a car warranty commercial! Where’s “Jake” when you need him!
“Iran are now planning to arrest or just kidnap Americans”
Heck, I’m thinking about kidnapping Americans! Just kidding!
When they go low, they CAN get even lower! There are no words in the English dictionary that can describe this!
Paul Whelan does not fit the narritive for the oval office. More is to be gained from whats-her-face hating this country!
For Whelan’s side of things:
Some other comments.
Joe Biden is a disgrace
As a veteran I’m sickened and torn. Imagine sitting in a Russian cell as this marine; God knows what he’s thinking or feeling. Your president has brokered a deal finally. It’s to exchange a Terry for an ungrateful WNBA player who got in trouble on her own. I would feel ultimately betrayed and forgotten but the people DO NOT FORGET.
no, its not that they’re incompetent. Ive realized that they know exactly what they’re doing. and its partially working. they WANT you to be defenseless, homeless, depressed, and angry. they dont care because they live in gated communities with all the money they could ever need. Americans and the country as a whole are not what they care about, its power. they’re not incompetent, there is a difference.
I’m just curious whether she’ll still take a knee the first time she’s back at a WNBA game.
I mean, I won’t be watching it. But if someone else sees it, let me know.
Considering the pudding head desecrating the oval office, yes. yes i can believe this $hit.
Thing is, she wasn’t “accused” of having cannabis oil. She HAD cannibis oil. She admitted TO having cannabis oil and illegally bringing into a foreign country who’s laws she either didn’t pay attention to or assumed she wouldn’t be held accountable to.
She did the crime, she should do the time.
I partially agree, but I also don’t doubt that Russia was making an example of her.
I would like to see other Americans released, but I’m happy for her in the meantime. Maybe she’ll reconsider her anti-American opinions.
Either way, Americans… don’t go to Russia.
I can believe it, remember when he was VP? They traded 5 terrorists in Guantanamo Bay for Beau Bergdal, a deserter.
Oh most certainly they were. But still, if she hadn’t had it on her, there wouldn’t have been an issue.
She was arrogant enough to think she could break the law of another country and not be held accountable. She should have be intelligent enough to know that just because something is legal, or at least considered legal, in this country, isn’t necessarily going to be legal in another. And if she wasn’t sure, she should have checked.
Hell, our guns are legal, according to the Constitution, yet we have to make sure of the laws when we travel between states. She didn’t think of checking for something like cannabis when travelling to a different country?
I’m happy, in a “No American left Behind” way, that she’s back. Do I think the sorry excuse taking up space in the oval office should have, I dunno, actually fought for both of them to come home? Hell yes. It would have been a show of force to say “Both of them or you don’t get this guy”. But that would have required him to actually have balls and would require him to actually stand up for something.
Grr…sorry for the rant . .
So, in short. Americans, don’t leave the continental United States while ■■■■ for brains is, technically, in charge. It’s not safe.
Fish, you are the first person so far that made any sensible remark. so far the ones before you can’t get past their "true feelings about race and color:. That is the problem with this country Those of you with jaded views need to know that this USA belongs to everyone and that will make America Great Again!!!
Race and color? Are you serious?
He must believe that all drug users are black… So he clearly isn’t racist/bigoted…
