Liberals Rather Upset GOP Says Ron Klain Is Pulling China Joe’s Strings

Remember how no one in the Credentialed Media had any problem with Democrats saying that Dick Cheney was George Bush’s puppet master? Now they seem pretty upset

GOP says Ron Klain pulling Biden strings

Biden Brain SlugRepublicans are attacking White House chief of staff Ron Klain as “the guy behind the curtain” and “Prime Minister Klain” as they try to push back on someone they see as formidable opponent in the battle over President Biden’s agenda.

The GOP blames Klain for Biden’s refusal to negotiate the price down on his $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief package, an approach they say conflicts with Biden’s campaign pledges.

“We’ve gotten the impression from our members that have been in meetings down there that he’s kind of the guy behind the curtain,” said Senate Republican Whip John Thune (R-S.D.).

Aides to Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) have taken to describing the White House chief of staff as “prime minister Klain,” an effort aimed at hurting Biden.

A Republican aide said the point of focusing on Klain is to undercut public perception of Biden as a leader who is totally with it.

“It plays into the theme of Biden’s not really running the show here,” said the aide. “It plays into the theme is he’s the figurehead and jovial and needs permission from this unelected guy to make any decision.”

The aide acknowledged that Biden has a high approval rating and that the public has embraced the president’s personality, but said there’s an opening for Republicans to argue “he’s not really running the show over there, whether it’s Ron Klain or [Speaker Nancy] Pelosi [D-Calif.] and [Senate Majority Leader Charles] Schumer [D-N.Y.]” who’s really in charge.

Ah, yet another anonymous aide, so absolutely no one can verify this. Besides, we’ve seen Biden in action, and he does not seem mentally all there. But, hey, he’s got a great personality, no mean tweets! He’s just doing all these hardcore leftist things when he campaigned on unity and bipartisanship.

Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine), who led a group of 10 GOP senators who met with Biden at the White House earlier this month, says Biden is being penned in by Schumer and Klain. Republicans also say Pelosi is pushing Biden to the left.

“The problem is that what appear to be productive talks seem to be countermanded by the Democratic leader in the Senate,” Collins told reporters.

If you’ve lost Squishy Susan, well…..

Biden allies call the attacks on Klain silly, particularly the suggestion it is he and not Biden who is in charge. They say Republicans are covering up for their own unwillingness to meet Biden halfway on COVID relief and other Democratic priorities with broad popular support.

“God love Ron Klain, but Joe Biden does what Joe Biden wants to do,” one adviser said. “He certainly takes the advice and processes it. Ron is one of the best advisers the President has but he knows what he has to do.”

Yeah, but does Joe Biden actually have any idea what he wants to do?

    BWAHA! Lolgf

  3. Dana says:

    The left had no problem saying that Vladimir Putin was pulling Donald Trump’s strings. It seems that they can dish it out, but they just can’t take it.

  4. Hairy says:

    The rightwing alesus sttsvks the Jees first
    They are always being accused of being the secret force controlling everything
    Do they think he belongs to the Illuminati ?

    That’s ridiculous. Everyone knows It’s Susan Rice.

  6. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    At least Mr Klain is American. Putin ran the White House of the former occupant. (Read the latest from David Kay Johnston on the former guy’s deep ties to the Russian mob!). The former house sitter may have to campaign from prison in 2024. LOL.

    It’s interesting that all the GOPhers suddenly parrot the same talking points. Biden’s not all there and someone else is running the show. LOL. You connies are a riot.

    • drowningpuppies says:

      So Rimjob is that your um, understanding or do we all know that?

      Our understanding is that you lied about signing up for the U.S. Army and we are still patiently awaiting your explanation?

      Bwaha! Lolgf

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        What we understand, Smegma-breath, is that you lie constantly, are a pusillanimous little boy with mommy issues, who never has anything of substance to add and who has never accomplished anything. You weren’t even worth 3 hrs of a lawyer’s time as it turns out.

        We don’t owe you an explanation about volunteering for the US Army, Smegma-breath. Is that all you got? Really? Accusing someone of lying when they told the truth?

        No wonder you spend all your time fluffing gitarcarver and Teach, Smegma-breath.

        And why do you live in the only state where bestiality is not outlawed?

        • drowningpuppies says:

          Touchy, touchy Rimjob.

          So you admit you lied about um,volunteering or um, signing up for the Army.

          Is that your truth?

          Just trying to get it straight.
          Sorry you’re such a pussy.

          Bwaha! Lolgf

          • drowningpuppies says:

            I don’t think Rimjob ever had it to begin with.

            It so easy to spot all the little pussy’s “tells” especially the lawyer part.

            Bwaha! Lolgf

  7. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    Teach imagines that the Dems are upset over GOPher insults and lies, but the article he cites spends all it’s column inches repeating the GOPher insults, and only identifying Sen Coon’s gentle push-back.

    GOPhers and tRumpublicans are beside themselves with trepidation over the state of their “party”. They have no policy proposals and no platform – all they can do is whine.

    Someone has to be controlling Grandpa earpiece…

  9. Est1950 says:

    Elwood Imagines the Democrats were angry over how trump didn’t punish the Saudia’s over Khasoggi’s death and now the White House announces…..were still bros.. No punishment, lets watch Elwood use his double jointed tongue to wiggle out of this one.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      We fully understand your reluctance to read anything but here ya go.

      The previous administration covered up the report that bin Salman had Kashoggi killed. Of course the president at that time was making lots of money from the Saudis and his resorts and hotels, but that could just be a coincidence.

      What did you mean no punishment?

      President Joe Biden released the intelligence community’s full report, which found that bin Salman ordered agents “to capture or kill” Khashoggi (the report that Trump hid). The State Department has issued 76 visa restrictions on Saudi nationals who Secretary of State Antony Blinken said are “believed to have been engaged in threatening dissidents overseas, including but not limited to the Khashoggi killing.”

      In a broader realignment of the U.S.-Saudi relationship, Biden also halted operational support for the Saudi war in Yemen.

      What did the previous prez do? Anything?

      “We believe there are more effective ways to make sure this doesn’t happen again and to also be able to leave room to work with the Saudis on areas where there is mutual agreement – where there is a national interest for the United States,” White House press secretary Jen Psaki said during an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union.”

      “The United States has not historically sanctioned the leaders of countries where we have diplomatic relations – or even some countries where we don’t have diplomatic relations,” Psaki noted.

      I think we should have bin Salman assassinated for his having Khashoggi murdered, but I’m not a geopolitical deep thinker like you. Would killing bin Salman or bombing the palace impact our relationship with Saudi Arabia or our position in the middle east?

      What would you do?

      • drowningpuppies says:

        Several mire Rimjob cut&pastes.

        BWAHA! Lolgf

        • Elwood P. Dowd says:

          Smegma-breath, now with EDS, doesn’t like direct quotes from identified sources!

      • Est1950 says:

        Sure Elwood. Already your side is jumping back in bed with IRAN who murders 1000’s of people each year and your side has already bombed Saudia Arabia and boarded Oil Tankers. So I can certainly understand why you would want to bomb Saudia Arabia and Kill the leader of our ally in the middle East.

        Qasem Soleiman People around the globe will tell you this man was flat assed evil and was responsible for the deaths of 10’s of thousands of MUSLIMS not to mention Americans and Allies as well. He was evil incarnate and the shock was that Trump would target Iran in such a way.

        Currently Iran is reeling from the assassination of their chief Nuclear scientist who was killed by a 1 ton automated weapon that killed only him in his car, surrounded by his wife and 13 body guards. No one else was injured.

        I say go for it Elwood. Why the hell not. I’m guessing you have no kids, grandkids or friends that would have to be boots on the ground in the middle east again.

        In other news:

        You mean like the Democrats covered up the fact that Donald Trump didn’t conspire with the Russians to win the 2016 election? You mean like Trump had to declassify HIDDEN information about the Russian collusion like Biden Declassified hidden information about this poor fellah who chose to work in the very dangerous middle East and to hang out in Turkey.

        That kind of cover up?

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:


      GENEVA (Reuters) – A U.N. human rights investigator said on Monday that it was “extremely dangerous” for the United States to have named Saudi Arabia’s de facto ruler as having approved an operation to capture or kill journalist Jamal Khashoggi but not to have taken action against him.

      Agnes Callamard, special rapporteur on summary executions who led a U.N. investigation into Khashoggi’s 2018 murder, reiterated her call for sanctions targeting Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s assets and his international engagements.

      So neither trump nor President Biden directly sanctioned bin Salman’s assets, although President Biden did take some actions.

      • drowningpuppies says:

        Again Rimjob tries to show how smart he is.

        Bwaha! Lolgf

        • Elwood P. Dowd says:

          Again Smegma-breath tries and SUCCCEEDS in showing how dumb he is.

          Smegma-breath suffers from EDS.

          • Dana says:

            “Smegma-breath” as an insult?

            Now, we evil reich-wing conservatives can use that, but I do not see how the LGBT-positive left can, not without being massive hypocrites.

          • Elwood P. Dowd says:

            LOL. PC Dana objects to Smegma but not Rimjob.

      • Est1950 says:

        Saudi Arabia’s main customers. CHINA, JAPAN, INDIA, SOUTH KOREA.

        Notice anything that stands out here?

        This is why you cover up certain things. The reason it is dangerous to OUT the Prince is because of who they do business with.

        Do you want to punish three of your main allies by sanctioning Saudi Arabia. Do you want China to become even more aggressive than they are now.

        Right NOW….THIS MOMENT the VA can hardly provide drugs for its patients because CHINA is squeezing the world of chemicals and drugs in response to everyone blaming them for Covid-19.

        To squeeze them farther by shutting down their oil from Saudi Arabia would be a step too far and allow RUSSIA to step in and fill the void left by the Saudi’s.

        Your right Elwood. Geo Politics is not your forte. You should stick to calling us Racists.

        • Elwood P. Dowd says:


          So you agree with President Biden that we shouldn’t directly sanction bin Salman, but your reasoning is it will keep China happy. Did Biden do too MUCH in response to Khashoggi’s murder???

          • Est1950 says:

            I gave you information to come to a conclusion.

            Your conclusion was to assassinate the man. I gave you reasons why this would be a bad idea. I also gave you reasons why not everything we do as a nation should be your bidness and why keeping the details of what the entire world assumed was true a secret was in the best interests of our Allies and to not give Russia more power than it already enjoys.

            When operating in the Middle East most Spies operate as a team to make sure what happened to Khashoggi would not happen to them.

            The USA is self absorbed in SJW and AGW the new 3 letter agencies that are despised by most nations around the world. Meanwhile nations such as Iran, Turkey, Russia, China, N. Korea and other bad actors don’t give a damn about SJW or AGW and will at every opportunity punish the USA and its allies for being self absorbed.

            It is why the EU is furious with the USA not because of Trump but because of the insanity of AGW and SJW.

            Germany is all about AGW vocally. YET the very nation is in the process of building a pipeline from Russia to Germany to supply natural gas.

            In the Mid East the wars there have been about a pipeline shipping trillions of cubic feet of Natural Gas to the EU. It is why Russia jumped into the fray and has propped up TURKEY who is bleeding cash. In this process they are accepting arms from Russia despite being a member of NATO.

            This is why the EU is all about AGW and yet are sending troops to the middle east to fight for their pipeline because Russia is trying to stop the pipeline. In Trumps case, he and Biden both tried to stop the pipeline from Russia as well.

            Why? Because by stopping both pipelines the USA is in position to supply Europe with Natural Gas. Biden might pretend to be all about AGW but he is marching to Wall Street’s orders. Trump on the other hand simply wanted out of the Middle East and this is something that would never stand with the MIC in America…nor will it stand with the liberals who used to be ANTI- MIDDLE EAST INVOLVEMENT.

            Why? Because the left hates Israel and until they have pushed Israel into the sea, they will never rest when it comes to the middle east.
