Newt tells Maria the Biden administration is filled with people who are “out of touch with reality.”
Well, look, I think that the Biden administration has no ability to think strategically. So, they bounce from press conference to press conference, from ridiculous statement to ridiculous statement. They don’t come to grips with reality. The reality is that Putin is that is engaged in what are clearly war crimes. These are criminal activities targeting maternity hospitals and children’s hospitals, targeting nuclear facilities. There are reports that show that Russians are moving towards using chemical weapons, exactly as they did in Syria. They sent in the Wagner group which is Putin’s personal assassination squad to try to kill some 23 Ukrainian leaders starting with the president. That is a criminal act by any standard. And nobody in the west wants to come to grips with the fact that you now have a huge country with 6,000 nuclear weapons whose leader is engaging in a series of war crimes and who clearly is extraordinarily dangerous. They keep dancing around it. The Iranian agreement is insane. You have a time when Russia is invading Ukraine, killing innocent civilians, engaging in clearly criminal acts. The Biden administration is letting the Russians set the tone for negotiating with Iran at a time by the way when the leading state power of terrorism in the world, the Iranians, actually have people in the United States trying to hunt down and kill former government officials. And apparently the Biden administration has avoided indicting two of these people because they don’t — I guess they don’t want to offend the Iranians. This is literally madness. This is not political. It’s not right and left. These are people who are just deranged. They’re out of touch with reality.
Well, first of all, what you have is a secular religion which people like John Kerry believe in so passionately that they will do virtually anything. So, getting — I mean, why would you take oil from Venezuela but not from Texas? Why would you take natural gas from Iran but not from Oklahoma? I mean, there’s something so profoundly perverted in the entire thought process of the Biden administration that it doesn’t fit a traditional political situation. Second if you watch Kamala Harris, how could you send her anywhere? The fact is, she is such an example of weakness and ignorance that having her in Poland and Romania, weakens, it doesn’t strengthen the western alliance, and nobody is coming to grips with the reality of Putin. Putin is engaged in actions that are clearly war crimes and he is directing them himself. They’re getting worse. He’s getting bolder as he gets more desperate and you had secretary Blinken doing the right thing the other day, saying that, yes, we would help the poles deliver MiG 29s to Ukraine. Within a day or two the defense department of the very same administration says no, we can’t do that. Well, I mean, where are we on all of this stuff? And frankly, I think we’re drifting towards an enormous danger of nuclear war and enormous danger of a decisive defeat of the west.
Look, you have to start with the idea that John Kerry is totally out of touch with reality and that it tells you a lot about the Biden administration that it is filled with people who are out of touch with reality. The fact is the war against Ukraine is going to raise the price of wheat higher than the price of oil. Millions are going to suffer, and millions are probably going to die of starvation because of the Russian attack on Ukraine. The fact is that the shipping is — which was already messed up is now dramatically more messed up because of what’s happening in the black sea. The fact is that that the Turkish economy is cratering because of the effect of the Russians and the black sea. And to not understand that this — this is one of the great crisis points in American history and in world history. I always wondered if President Roosevelt had picked Henry Wallace and kept him, he was a very left wing guy he was very pro-Moscow at the time, if he would have been the president instead of Harry Truman what would have happened and the odds are the soviets would have won. We’re getting to see that. This is the equivalent of Henry Wallace in 1945 giving in. And I don’t think people realize yet what an enormously dangerous moment we’re in. This is close to the late 1930’s and 1914. Putin has nuclear weapons. He is clearly willing to do anything. He has he total contempt for the west. And I fully expect him to start using chemical weapons the next few days. Because he can’t win a conventional war. I think it’s been a great shock to him to realize how bad his military is. And how courageous the Ukrainians are. Americans need to match the Ukrainians in our willingness to stand up to a dictator.
Well, the first move ought to be to open up American oil and gas production, repeal all of the executive orders and other things that Biden has done to cripple America. And communicate to the Europeans that we will be their primary supplier of natural gas and that we’re going to drive down the price of oil to take money out of Putin’s pocket. Putin makes over $1 billion a day, every day, out of the current high price of oil. You talk about sanctions all you want but as long as oil’s this expensive, Putin’s going to be able to afford this war forever. Second, I think need to have a genuine strategy of strengthening Ukraine, giving them every weapon they need, and making sure they defeat the Russian military. I don’t think we can have anything short of an absolute defeat. We ought to say openly, Putin ought to be subject to be tried for crimes that are clearly war crimes, they are clearly crimes against civilization. You can’t bomb a children’s hospital deliberately or bomb a nuclear reactor or send in your assassination squad to try to kill the top people in the Ukrainian government, you can’t do those things and get away with it and if we allow him to get away with it, we have now entered an age of barbarism and we’ll see this all over the planet and it will be as though the cold war never existed and the west never won and it will be Joe Biden who will have presided over the defeat of the west.
They can’t because they believe in a secular religion which makes it — they can’t deal with violent criminals at home. They can’t deal with a violent dictator overseas. They can’t confront reality. They get together in a room and tell themselves fantasies. If you just watch Kamala Harris trying to explain the war, it should be obvious. These people are incompetent to deal with the real world. They were fine in a basement for a campaign. They’re just terrible in the white house for a real war.
