As Pentagon Backtracks On Talk Of Russian Invasion, Putin Responds To Biden Personal Sanctions Threat

    In the White House’s latest threat – or rather an option which it keeps repeating – Joe Biden says he could sanction Vladimir Putin personally if Russia moves on Ukraine, something that within the last 48 hours even Ukraine officials have begun to downplay as they’ve tried to calm that state of panic among their population.

    The Russian leader was quick to repeat that this would be tantamount to breaking off all relations, and further that Moscow wouldn’t hesitate to respond to any “aggressive” action by the US or its allies. The BBC notes that “Officially, Putin only owns an apartment and three cars” – suggesting that it would be practically difficult for Washington to sanction all the wealth the Russian president doesn’t officially own.

    The report further notes that this hot button issue was again raised in response to a Biden press Q&A on Tuesday:

    Taking questions from reporters on Tuesday, Mr Biden replied “yes” when asked whether he could see himself imposing sanctions on the Russian president personally in the event of an invasion.

    Such a move across Ukraine’s border would mean “enormous consequences worldwide” and could amount to “the largest invasion since World War Two”, he said.

    But as for whether such an invasion will actually come any time soon (much less whether it’s “imminent” as Jen Psaki has been repeating), the Pentagon itself is now downplaying the scenario.

    Pentagon spokesman John Kirby early this week said in a briefing that “obviously we’re mindful of things that the Russians could do that would potentially give us indications of some sort of imminent incursion.” He emphasized though, “we’re not there yet, but we are watching for those indicators very, very closely.” Kirby added that “It’s very clear that the Russians have no intention right now of de-escalating.”

    And there was also this exchange on Monday:

    Q: And we’re telling diplomats’ families to leave and Americans to leave, so is this moving on from a diplomatic effort to preparing for an invasion?

    MR. KIRBY:  NO, not at all.  Again, what we’re — what we’re telling these units to do is to be ready to go on a shorter timeline than what they were before.

    On Wednesday, so-called Normandy format talks kicked off at the Elysee Palace in Paris, involving representatives from Germany, France, Ukraine, and Russia. The representative for Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky says Kiev is optimistic

    As we noted Tuesday, the situation appears to be de-escalating and the West is backing off the ‘military option’ for now, after Germany, France, and other NATO allies made it clear they are breaking from the more confrontational and bellicose tone of the US and UK. On the question of sanctioning Putin personally, the UK has also said it has “not ruled anything out”.

        There is, however, roughly 80 million conservative Americans who are well-armed and well-meaning. They understand the dangers and are awake to what they’re up against. Of course they’re, labeled anti vaxxers, Racist and white supremacists.

        A significant number of people are just going on about their daily lives as if none of this is happening.

        Can they regain control of the country before the globalists flood in and take over?

        That is the only question that remains.

        • WARNING AMERIKA: With Scotus Stephen Breyer declaring retirement, watch Lets Go Fake Pres Biden nominate VP Kamala Harris for Scotus, (A Black Woman) then Brandon moves to replace VP Harris with Killery Clinton as the New VP, and once she is in place, then Binden will resign. Watch This Sh!t Show unfold before our very eyes this summer.

      2. Well said.

        • Ukraine was hijacked under Obama and they installed a Pubbet proWest leader. The People of Ukraine have suffered immensely over the last 6+ years. Putin is trying to rescue the people from its Western/ NATO grip with tyranny. The Ukraine people want Russia over the Wests Tyranny.

          The West MSM are lying scum to the reality of this scandal of whats really going on. Remember the falle False Flag shooting down of MS17 over Ukraine to try and blame Russia, which was a scam and the West got busted, because Putin had the real satellite images of the Squatters jets using a Python air to air missile to take the passenger jet down in this FF. The West got busted again. Putin plays chess as the West plays with themselves.

          • I meant MH17 – the Malaysian Passenger jet liner.

      3. I sincerely hope that I am not the only remaining American who absolutely despises the character trait of ‘arrogance’ being exhibited by whatever slimy asshole who occupies the Oval Office.

        Pedo Joe cannot seem to utter more than one or two sentences in front of a TV camera without launching into one of his unbelievable and infuriating episodes of pathologically insane, clearly unhinged and certifiably maniacal outbursts of arrogance – and he not only does this when discussing foreign leaders who refuse to bow to his authoritarian, dictatorial demands – but, he does the same thing to any American citizen who refuses bow down and lick his nasty feet.

        This guy’s rapidly deteriorating mental state and
        showing clear indications of Alzheimer’s Disease – could very well see this dangerously feeble P.O.S. decide to launch WW3 with a dangerous and very capable nuclear powered nation who is lead by a leader (Putin) who is 100 percent within his rights as the leader of Russia to be concerned about protecting his nation from these recklessly provocative efforts to encircle his nation with NATO member nations where the USA and these bat-shit crazy, war mongering, psychopathic neo-cons want to place short range nuclear warhead capable ballistic missiles that could strike Russia with almost no warning and potentially murder every last man, woman and child in his nation.

        Would the USA tolerate Russia or China setting up missile bases in Mexico or Canada, from which they could launch nukes against the USA and we would have almost no warning or time to respond? We all know the answer to that question.

        Putin is 100 percent right in this dispute. He is leader who looking out for the national security interests of his country and his people. Pedo Joe and his 70% jewish infested administration are the aggressors and they are endangering the lives of every American citizen and also endangering the lives of multiple millions of people in Europe with this reckless and unnecessary provocation agenda.

        • You lost me at ….”70% Jewish infested administration…” What does that being Jewish have to do with anything? Care to elaborate?

          • It’s really quite elementary. Anyone who is Jewish in the administration whether it is a Republican or Democrat led, is most likely going to have a dual citizenship with Israel and will probably be loyal to Zionism which is a political philosophy and not theological. It’s would be equivalent to having that are citizens of the US and China and are members of the PRC. All decisions that they make no matter what the optics are will be decisions that benefit the Jewish people or Israel and not the people of the US unless they are Jewish.

          • to Jes Doro – AKA: Rothchild, kabal taking down Amerikka, straddles with debt and needless wars to bankrupt America.
            Here is the Great American Statesman Benjamin Franklin’s Quote to Congress regarding the Global Parasite.
            “I fully agree with General Washington, that we must protect this young nation from an insidious influence and impenetration. The menace, gentlemen, is the Je-ws. In whatever country Je-ws have settled in any great numbers, they have lowered its moral tone; depreciated its commercial integrity; have segregated themselves and have not been assimilated; have sneered at and tried to undermine the Christian religion upon which that nation is founded by objecting to its restrictions; have built up a state within a state; and when opposed have tried to strangle that country to death financially, as in the case of Spain and Portugal.

            “For over 1700 years the Je-ws have been bewailing their sad fate in that they have been exiled from their homeland, they call Palestine. But, Gentlemen, should the world today give it to them in fee simple, they would at once find some cogent reason for not returning. Why? Because they are vampires, and vampires do not live on vampires. They cannot live only among themselves. They must subsist on Christians and other people not of their race.

            “If you do not exclude them from these United States, in this Constitution in less than 200 years they will have swarmed in such great numbers that they will dominate and devour the land, and change our form of government, for which we Americans have shed our blood, given our lives, our substance and jeopardized our liberty.

            “If you do not exclude them, in less than 200 years our descendants will be working in the fields to furnish them sustenance, while they will be in the counting houses rubbing their hands. I warn you, Gentlemen, if you do not exclude the Je-ws for all time, your children will curse you in your graves. Je-ws, Gentlemen, are Asiatics; let them be born where they will, or how many generations they are away from Asia, they will never be otherwise. Their ideas do not conform to an American’s, and will not even though they live among us ten generations. A leopard cannot change its spots.

            “Je-ws are Asiatics, they are a menace to this country if permitted entrance and should be excluded by this Constitution.”

            Want to respond Jes Doro??

          • I have neither the time or inclination to waste or the effort to exert in trying to red pill you on the overwhelmingly DOMINANT race of the vast majority of these blood-thirty, endlessly war mongering ‘neo-cons’.

            This issue is not rocket science, pal. Hence, I am forced to assume that you are one of two things. You’re either dumber and denser than a box of rocks, or you’re a member of the tribe and resorting to the worn out tactic that the tribe uses whenever they sense that the spotlight is shining on them by holding up their hands, adopting a feigned expression of shock and bewilderment on their faces and whining ‘Who, me?’

        • Without the j/q, it is ultimately a question of whether secession is ethical.

      4. A nice little war with Russia would be a good thing to take attention away from a growing awareness that the Covid vaccinations are a major failure and the attempts to mandate them are some some sort of politically motivated thing with unspoken purposes instead of a medical one for public health.

        This wouldn’t be happening if Trump had won. Or would it? Maybe there’s things at play here, things happening in a bigger picture, that no one sees.


        One of Carlson’s commenters aptly said, from the Afghanistan, the graveyard of nations, to fighting Russia in the winter.

        From the East Bloc to the West, which country expressly does not want this war.

      6. This country is being led by a bunch of traitors and they ALL need to fry in the electric chair for their crimes!
