The situation unfolding along the Ukraine-Russia border is yet another example of Joe Biden’s weakness and general inability to lead — it simply should not be happening. Period.
Biden allowed Putin to essentially bully the United States into submission by using our relationship with NATO as leverage. While protecting your allies is always beneficial in a geopolitical context, that strategy should never result in the U.S. entering into unnecessary war.

However, Biden is so incredibly desperate to eek out a political victory, just as his party is poised to lose big during the 2022 midterm elections later this year, that he’s willing to fane the flames of war.
The inflamed rhetoric coming from the Biden administration is pure strategy; they want to give an appearance that Putin and Putin alone is leaving the United States no options but to use military violence to prevent an “invasion” into Ukraine.
Meanwhile, the Biden administration has not utilized their ability to sanction Putin and other high-ranking Russian officials before threatening military action, which tells you everything you need to know about Biden and his war mongering ways.
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said on Sunday evening that D Biden has “accepted in principle” a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in an effort to stop a war from breaking out in Europe.

Accepted in principle? That is the most bulls**** politician’s response one can give in such a precarious time in history.
“We are always ready for diplomacy,” she continued. “We are also ready to impose swift and severe consequences should Russia instead choose war. And currently, Russia appears to be continuing preparations for a full-scale assault on Ukraine very soon.”
The news come as Putin has amassed approximately 190,000 troops near the Ukraine border, effectively surrounding the country. A U.S. official told reporters on Friday that 40-50% of the up to 190,000 Russian soldiers near Ukraine’s borders are now “in an attack position.”
Russian military forces have reportedly received orders from Putin to invade Ukraine, according to a new report on alleged U.S. intelligence.
Biden’s former White House stenographer, Mike McCormick, recounted in a series of interviews in 2020 how then-Vice President Biden was allegedly dominated by then-Russian Prime Minister Putin during a 2011 meeting in Moscow.
“I was standing in the room with him when he met with Vladimir Putin and Vladimir Putin body slammed him. He made him look like he didn’t know what he was doing,” McCormick told Fox News radio late last year. “It was the first one-on-one meeting Joe Biden had with Vladimir Putin. It was during the Russian reset. It was in 2011.”
“And all of a sudden, Vladimir Putin just turned off the lights and that was it,” McCormick continued. “Joe Biden couldn’t say another word. They cut off his mike. They turned off the lights for the press, for the television cameras, and Joe Biden was dumbfounded.”
McCormick said that he witnessed Biden “getting bullied by authoritarian leaders,” including when “almost the same thing happened several months later in China” and several years later “in Turkey.”
Raise your hand if you’re surprised that Biden is routinely bullied by foreign leaders.
