If you thought that the neocon-controlled US plan to isolate and destroy Russia couldn’t get any worse, you were wrong. In a speech in Poland, brain-dead Biden said that Putin could not stay in power. This was not a slip. As Dr. Ron Paul points out with characteristic insight, “Previewing President Biden’s trip to Europe last week, US National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan said that, ‘the president is traveling to Europe to make sure we stay united.’
That sure didn’t go as planned. This may have been the most disastrous – and dangerous – Presidential overseas trip ever.
The US and its NATO allies have repeatedly proclaimed that ‘protecting Ukraine’s democracy’ has never been about threatening Russia. Holding out NATO membership and sending billions of dollars in military equipment to Ukraine, starting under Trump, was not threatening Russia. CIA training camps in eastern Ukraine, where paramilitaries were trained on US weapons systems, was not about threatening Russia.
But at every stop, President Biden seemed to undermine the narrative his own Administration had carefully crafted. First up, warning that Russia might use chemical weapons in Ukraine, Biden promised it would ‘trigger a response in kind,’ meaning the US would use chemical weapons as well. That would be a serious war crime.
National Security Advisor Sullivan had to be brought to explain that the US has ‘no intention’ of using chemical weapons.
Later, speaking to the 82nd Airborne in Poland, President Biden told them that US troops would soon be in Ukraine. He said to the troops, ‘you’re going to see — you’re going to see women, young people standing — standing the middle of — in front of a … tank, just saying, “I’m not leaving. I’m holding my ground.”’
A White House spokesman had to clarify that, ‘the president has been clear we are not sending US troops to Ukraine and there is no change in that position.’
Clear? Well, not really. He had just said the opposite to our own troops!
Then, at the end of Biden’s final speech in Poland, the President inadvertently told the truth: the US involvement in Ukraine is all about ‘regime change’ for Russia. Speaking of Russian President Putin, he told the audience, near the border of Ukraine, ‘for God‘s sake, this man cannot remain in power.’
The President’s disaster control team immediately mobilized in the person of Secretary of State Antony Blinken, who offered this pained interpretation of Biden’s clear statement, ‘I think the president, the White House, made the point last night that, quite simply, President Putin cannot be empowered to wage war or engage in aggression against Ukraine or anyone else.’
No, that’s not what he said. The president has a leading Constitutional role in the formation of US foreign policy, and he said in a public speech that ‘regime change’ in Russia is US policy. Any attempt by his staffers to try to explain it away looks terrible: either the President has no idea what he’s saying so we should not take seriously what is essentially a declaration of war on Russia, or the President took the opportunity on the border with Ukraine to essentially declare war on Russia.
Presidents Reagan, Ford, and Bush Jr. were all known for their gaffes. Some were funny and some were serious. But none of them declared war on a nuclear-armed adversary in that adversary’s own backyard and then afterward had to send out staff to explain that the president didn’t mean what he just said.
Interestingly, Biden saved his most hawkish and bombastic statements for this final speech in Poland, at which none of the more cautious NATO partners like Germany and France were present. So much for ‘unity’ being the prime purpose of the trip.”
The warmongers are taking an enormous risk, even for them. Putin is not the maniac they portray him to be but rather a cautious statesman pursuing Russia’s legitimate security interests. In previous articles, I’ve cited the work of the America’s foremost expert on Putin, Professor Stephen Cohen, to show this. But no one can doubt that Putin is tough and, if cornered, will fight with everything he has. An effort to oust him could bring on a nuclear war that will destroy the world. Even if only “tactical” nuclear weapons were used, this would have disastrous consequences. As the distinguished philosopher Robert Paul Wolff has noted, “The weapons referred to as ‘tactical nuclear weapons’ are fission bombs each of which is rated as the equivalent of perhaps 3000 to 5000 tons of TNT or some similar explosive. This is referred to in shorthand as a 3 KT or 5 KT tactical nuke, a catchy form of speech that sounds hep and knowledgeable, what was called when I was young ‘inside dopester.’
Let us think about this for a moment. If Russia were to send a flight of 50 heavy bombers to attack the capital city of Ukraine and if each of these bombers were to carry four so-called ‘blockbuster’ bombs, each containing the equivalent of 1000 pounds of TNT, and if all 50 of these bombers were to drop their bombs on the capital city, causing enormous amounts of destruction and death, this would be an attack using a total of 100 tons of high explosive. If Russia were to send such a flight of bombers every day for a month, it would at the end of that month have delivered to Kyiv an explosive power equivalent to one so-called tactical nuclear weapon rated at 3 KT. In one month, Russia would have destroyed Kyiv with conventional weapons. Using a single tactical nuclear weapon, Russia would destroy Kyiv in roughly 3 seconds. To ensure the complete destruction of Kyiv, Russia might have to double down and use two or three tactical nuclear weapons. Not by any stretch of language can this be called a ‘tactical decision.’” See this.
The Ukrainian leader Zelensky, often portrayed in our captive press as a hero, has done his best to bring on a nuclear war. He wants America to be even more aggressive. “Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, visibly irritated, demanded that Western nations provide a fraction of the military hardware in their stockpiles to his country and asked whether they were afraid of Moscow.
Several countries have promised to send anti-armor and anti-aircraft missiles as well as small arms but Zelenskiy said Kyiv was not getting what it needed.
‘It is tanks for our state. It is missile defense. It is anti-ship weapons. That is what our partners have, that is what is just gathering dust there,” he said in his now customary late-night video address on Saturday. ‘This is all not only for the freedom of Ukraine but for the freedom of Europe.’
Ukraine needs just 1% of NATO’s aircraft and 1% of its tanks, he said, adding that it would be impossible to stop Russian attacks on the besieged southern port of Mariupol without enough tanks, armored vehicles, and aircraft.
‘We’ve already been waiting 31 days. Who is in charge of the Euro-Atlantic community? Is it really still Moscow, because of intimidation?’ he said.
Zelenskiy has repeatedly argued that Russia will seek to expand further into Europe if Ukraine falls. However, NATO has rebuffed his calls for a no-fly zone to be established over Ukraine on the grounds that this could provoke a wider war.”
Zelensky doesn’t need to worry. The US is leading us toward nuclear war. Glenn Greenwald summarizes US strategy in this way: The U.S. is, by definition, waging a proxy war against Russia, using Ukrainians as their instrument, with the goal of not ending the war but prolonging it. So obvious is this fact about U.S. objectives that even The New York Times last Sunday explicitly reported that the Biden administration ‘seeks to help Ukraine lock Russia in a quagmire’ (albeit with care not to escalate into a nuclear exchange). Indeed, even ‘some American officials assert that as a matter of international law, the provision of weaponry and intelligence to the Ukrainian Army has made the United States a cobelligerent,’ though this is ‘an argument that some legal experts dispute.’ Surveying all this evidence as well as discussions with his own U.S. and British sources, Niall Ferguson, writing in Bloomberg, proclaimed: ‘I conclude that the U.S. intends to keep this war going.’ UK officials similarly told him that ‘the U.K.’s No. 1 option is for the conflict to be extended and thereby bleed Putin.’
In sum, the Biden administration is doing exactly that which former President Obama warned in 2016 should never be done: risking war between the world’s two largest nuclear powers over Ukraine.”
We should unite behind the magnificent leadership of Dr. Ron Paul to do what we can to stop this madness. Our lives depend on it.
Apparent dead Ukranians
moving as the car
Americans and other gullible people in the West are being fed pure BS 24/7 365 about the “war” in Ukraine. TPTB cannot stir up a population for support based on facts alone when the facts are not on its side, it has to hide the facts, and resort to propaganda and emotional manipulation. The news presented on the MSM (the propaganda organ for the State) about Ukraine is patently false. Absurdities (like the moving “dead bodies”) and fabricated stories are being reported, details are altered, opinions are presented as news, and with each passing hour the stories get more dire. The favored technique is to mix a little truth with a big lie to make it appear real. Everything is being reported except the facts. There has even been crazy stories of Ukrainian citizens in the cities being gassed and Russian soldiers going into hospitals to kill babies.
Based on the “news” being given to the masses, it is obvious there is a bigger issue in our agenda behind it all. The point is – a rational mind discounts everything he hears until the truth of it is discovered.
WAG THE DOG
yes….yes …i believe Russian spies have already used chemical weapons on Biden and other officials in his administration.

Is this writer retarded or what? Biden doesn’t run shit! The owners of the world (or most of it) make the commands. Chiden can’t tie his shoes. Just the perfect stooge for whats happening. Retards blame owned/blackmailed politicians and watch the TV where they get the idea politicians actually run anything. Politicians are a dime a dozen owned fooks to make you look at the dog and pony show in a dim light. The people behind ALL major things are people you have never heard of and trillionaires. WAKE UP!
True, Biden was put into office as a figurehead because he isn’t quite competent enough to realize he was just obeying orders and not really the originator of them.
He probably thinks he won the election legitimately as well, I doubt he was told what was going on because his handlers wouldn’t want to take a chance on his blurting it out in one of his mental episodes.
We need to quit focusing on him and start looking for who is really in charge if we want to change anything (Just vote Republican, I’m sure that’ll do it).
Yes, he earnestly believes he won legitimately. No doubt his declining mental capacity and therefore the ease of manipulation was seen even then. He was apparently persuaded by still unknown individuals that the country needed him and that he needed to run for election “to save the country”, he even said so. Since there was so much election fraud the outcome was not in doubt, he would be selected, but not elected. The crooked election took place to simply legitimize him as prez.
He does not formulate policy, nor can he critically do so. He has been heard saying over the mic that he didn’t know what he is signing but was told to sign it. Give ex-prezDT credit, he can entertain a crowd for 3 hours without a script, but if prezJB loses his place on the teleprompter he is instantly lost and doesn’t know what to say. However, if he was closely involved in formulating policy wouldn’t he know what to say even without a teleprompter?
That prezJB is not in charge is obvious. How can he be the originator of policy when he cannot even explain it, or gets confused when explaining it. He’s not even in the real decision making loop. He is the rubber stamp, the public face and figure to attach to the policies and decisions to make it seem legitimate, that’s all.
We know who serves in the many various staff offices to “provide support” to the prez, but we will never see the faces or know the names of the individuals who are the actual ones that tell them what to do.
Who is in charge…it ain’t man and it ain’t the devil (Satan)…
Chew on these and then get back to me…don’t choke on them, but chew as a cow chews her cud and let it sink in…the Lord God is the One who works all things after the counsel of His will and if you deny it, makes no difference to me…God has been used as a genie for too long and stroked…yet the Lord God is One doing the stroking now, stroking with the hand of indignation and as the word says, His sword is raised and whetted (sharpened) and ready to cut to the core of wickedness…
“The LORD hath prepared His Throne In the heavens; and His Kingdom ruleth over all” (Psalm. 103:19).
The Lord God omnipotent reigneth. His government is exercised over inanimate matter, over the brute beasts, over the children of men, over angels good and evil, and over Satan himself. No revolving world, no shining of star, no storm, no creature moves, no actions of men, no errands of angels, no deeds of Devil—nothing in all the vast universe can come to pass otherwise than God has eternally purposed. Here is a foundation of faith. Here is a resting place for the intellect. Here is an anchor for the soul, both sure and steadfast. It is not blind fate, unbridled evil, man or Devil, but the Lord Almighty who is ruling the world, ruling it according to His own good pleasure and for His own eternal glory.
“The disposings (margin) of the heart, and the answer of the tongue is from the LORD” (Prov. 16:1). Mark that the above declaration is of general application—it is of “man,” not simply of believers, that this is predicated. “A man’s heart deviseth his way: but the LORD directeth his steps” (Prov. 16:9). If the Lord directs the steps of a man, is it not proof that he is being controlled or governed by God? Again: “There are many devices in a man’s heart; nevertheless the counsel of the LORD, that shall stand” (Prov. 19:21). Can this mean anything less than, that no matter what man may desire and plan, it is the will of his Maker which is executed?
Proverbs 16:4 The LORD created everything for His purpose, yea, even the wicked for the day of evil.
Its all been planned folks and you can stamp your feet and shake your fist to the heavens above, yet God today is bringing about calamity on the earth.
6 That men may know from the rising to the setting of the sun
That there is no one besides Me.
I am the Lord, and there is no other,
7 The One forming light and creating darkness,
Causing well-being and creating calamity;
I am the Lord who does all these.
Buckle up boys and girls…its about to get real bumpy…
America, the Babylon – R.A. Coombes
“Flee out of the midst of Babylon, and deliver every man his soul: be not cut off in her iniquity; for this is the time of the Lord’s vengeance; he will render unto her a recompence. Babylon hath been a golden cup in the Lord’s hand, that made all the earth drunken: the nations have drunken of her wine; therefore the nations are mad. Babylon is suddenly fallen and destroyed: howl for her; take balm for her pain, if so be she may be healed. We would have healed Babylon, but she is not healed: forsake her, and let us go every one into his own country: for her judgment reacheth unto heaven, and is lifted up even to the skies.”
— from Jer 51
So yer sayin I should move to Russia?
Biden and Ukraine have been partners since he was vp. He and his son gave Ukraine the f-119, the f-35, and classified items from a biolab in Virginia. Took it there on airforce two. And magically we have convid. Talk about a foreign agent!
Resident Bidet couldn’t even
blow up a balloon –
much less the world.
Well, I’m not going to tell you ” I told you so “, because when he was elected, I just had a feeling. I feel funny / stupid for saying this, but I just didn’t like the way things were being run in his political camp. Am I wrong to be saying this, yes if hoping and praying that I’m wrong again. but that brain dead s o b and his handlers are going to cause the U.S. and it people a lot of grief in the near term and in the future. I hope I’m wrong as usual
The Bidet will only blown up his depends!
they are doing all these things to astonish the believers of the lie placed their trust and lives on this you gullible sheeple they have sold you endless acres of swampland thinking you all so smart are actually the lowest iqs that have ever existed.
Biden doesn’t run anything. He just does as hes told.
Zelensky is heir to Poroshenko, who was appointed by GEORGE SOROS and his 2014 Maidan revolution, which overthrew the DEMOCRATICALLY elected government in a violent revolution.
Zelensky is a evil as Putin. Sorry.
Hey arzehole fake Pres. Brandon. WE, the people are right ow standing up to you, saying, “I’m not leaving. I’m holding my ground.”’ Against your fascism.
Freaking arzehole Brandon.
Quite possibly the dumbest thing I’ve ever seen written here. Congrats “Anonymous”, you have set a new high bar for stupidity.
