Top Russian lawmaker labels US president a ‘terrorist’

RT | February 9, 2023

Speaker of the Russian parliament Vyacheslav Volodin has branded US President Joe Biden a “terrorist” after a report by iconic American investigative journalist Seymour Hersh blamed Washington for sabotaging the Nord Stream pipelines last year.

Volodin said on Thursday that Biden’s State of the Union address, in which he claimed that the US was “a nation that stands as a beacon to the world,” reminded him of “statements by the leaders of the Third Reich.”

The ramifications of this “ideology of exceptionalism” were uncovered in the investigation by Hersh, the Russian MP wrote in a post on Telegram.

The State Duma speaker was referring to a report published by the Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist on Wednesday, in which he claimed that the US was behind the explosions on the Nord Stream pipelines last September. According to an informed source who talked to Hersh, explosives were planted at the key pipelines in the Baltic Sea back in June 2022 by US Navy divers under the guise of a NATO exercise. They were later detonated remotely.

Nord Stream 1 and 2 had been important routes for the delivery of Russian gas to Europe through Germany.

“If [Harry S.] Truman became a criminal, who used nuclear weapons against civilians in Hiroshima and Nagasaki, then Biden became a terrorist, who ordered the destruction of the energy infrastructure of his strategic partners: Germany, France, the Netherlands,” Volodin said.

The sabotage of the pipelines by the Americans was “an act of intimidation of its vassals, who decided to develop their economy in the interests of their own citizens,” he wrote.

The revelations by Hersh should be grounds for an international investigation to “bring Biden and his accomplices to justice,” and to make sure that the nations affected by this “terrorist attack” are paid compensation, Volodin added.

The Biden administration has denied the report by Hersh, with the National Security Council spokeswoman Adrienne Watson calling it “utterly false and complete fiction.”

The Russian authorities have for months been pointing to the fact that the only side that benefited from Nord Stream being rendered inoperable was the US, which saw its supplies of liquified natural gas to Europe increase massively following the sabotage.

  1. We have Biden’s own words in answer to a question about Nordstream. Biden promised it would be no more if Putin invaded Ukraine. Biden’s threat to destroy Nordstream was publicly seconded by Asst. Sec. of State Victoria Nuland. After the pipelines were blown up Liz Truss, Britain’s former PM, called Anthony Blinken and told him “it’s done”. Until there is accountability in a court of law Biden will just deny it. Present the evidence to the international court at the Hague and bring it before the United Nations too. Appealing to US federal courts would be a futile waste of time.

  3. The picture of Joe Biden needs a caption. Here’s one: “I’m trying to remember. What was the question? What I forgot is my… I’m trying to remember something Bibi told me…“America is a thing you can move very easily, move it in the right direction.” I remember the other thing! Mossad’s motto. Deception or something. I remember! Think about Kennedy. He didn’t obey. No. It’s bomb Iran! If I can do it to the pipeline, I can do it to Iran! I forget… or a war I should make. Where was I, anyway? It doesn’t matter, ’cause the Nation’s saved and strong from the insurrectionists and Europe will need to buy oil from American companies. I’m gonna run again and you can help elect President Harris and me. You like my shiny white shirt and tie? Nice, huh? Nice cuff links, too. Star of Israel on both of ’em. Jeffrey got ’em from Ehud, who gave ’em to Bibi, who gave ’em to Bubba on the plane, or island. I forget. Who gave ’em to Obama, who gave ’em to Bibi, who gave ’em to me? I forget. But I got a whole box of ’em. Karine Jean-Pierre’s gonna pass ’em out at the next press meeting. But not to Seymour Hersh. Donald Trump’s got his own. Got ’em from that lawyer guy. Who kept his knickers on.”

    • That is an embarrassingly accurate depiction of ‘stumbling Joe’.
