Feeling his oats after effusive adulation from leaders of NATO – and Japan at the G-7 summit – Biden gave us the Mother of All Faux Pax this afternoon in Poland. (No, sadly, it was not some kind of Polish joke.)
Echoing imperious King Henry II of England, Biden uttered the equivalent of "Will no one rid me of this troublesome priest" … or troublesome president? The priest, of course, was Thomas Becket, Archbishop of Canterbury. The president is Vladimir Putin, who had already warned a complete break in Russia-U.S. relations.
Referring in all but name to President Putin, Biden said, "This man cannot remain in power." Reminder that should not be necessary: Prudent presidents have been reluctant to say that of the leader of other countries – sometimes even when the two are at war. Nor do I need to point out the inevitable hurdle to the cooperation necessary to negotiate a halt to invasions and introduce a ceasefire. Is it all the same to Biden that the carnage continue, with rhetorical promises of support, weapons that are blown up as soon as they cross the border into Ukraine, and crocodile tears.
This will not end well. Among other things, it amounts to public confirmation, at the chief-of-state level, no less, that U.S. involvement in Ukraine (particularly since the U.S.-arranged coup d’etat on Feb. 22, 2014) has been "regime change" in Russia.
That coup has been accurately labeled "the most blatant coup in history". The main orchestrator, caught on tape arranging for a new Ukrainian prime minister, was Victoria Nuland – now number three at the State Department telling her nominal boss Tony Blinken what to say and do on Ukraine.) See Putin’s Invasion of Ukraine Salon.
Coup No Surprise: Neither Was Russia’s Reaction
After Nuland openly bragged in Dec. 2013 of the US having invested $5 Billion in Ukraine’s aspirations to join the West, and then orchestrated the coup two months later, one agency of the US intelligence community, the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) got it right, presaging what slipped out of Biden’s lips earlier today. In an annual "National Security Strategy" report mandated by Congress, DIA Director LT Gen. Vincent Stewart on Dec. 2015 signed off on the following text:
"The Kremlin is convinced the United States is laying the groundwork for regime change in Russia, a conviction further reinforced by the events in Ukraine. Moscow views the United States as the critical driver behind the crisis in Ukraine and believes that the overthrow of former Ukrainian President Yanukovych is the latest move in a long-established pattern of U.S.-orchestrated regime change efforts."
For some reason, the mainstream media gave no play to that key finding. Let’s see how they play Biden’s confirmation of it.

“Nor do I need to point out the inevitable hurdle to the cooperation necessary to negotiate a halt to invasions and introduce a ceasefire.”
There isn’t going to be a halt to the invasion. There may be a ceasefire, but even that is doubtful, given Zelenskey’s control by the CIA and the neo-Nazis.
Russia will continue its operations inside Ukraine until its objectives are accomplished. Those objectives are not just the three conventional objectives, i.e., neutrality (which isn’t even really a Russian objective), recognition of Donbass and Crimea, and “no NATO”.
Russian objectives are far more comprehensive. They include “de-militarization” which means a “de-NATOing” and reorientation of the Ukraine military, and “de-Nazification” which includes purging the existing Ukrainian government of all neo-Nazi and hardline nationalist elements, replacing that government with a new Constitution, new government, new elections, and reorganization of the Ukrainian military and security services.
All of which is merely prelude to the real main objective: installing Russia strategic weapons in bases inside Ukraine and Belarus to counter the US weapons in Poland and Romania. The invasion of Ukraine is step one of the “military-technical measures” Russia promised when it said what would happen if the West refused its treaty proposals.
Lovely comment even if I do have say so and state the obvious.
Looks like Poland has a humanitarian crisis.
Nazis: I hate those guys.
Great read Ray, thank you!
This is Coup on Russia is seemingly similar to Andrew ‘Redarse’ Carnegie’s coup on the Tsar and his genetic line to remove them from the Mergovian Mornarchy Madness of divine fiat: to sire the new King David from the offspring of Jesus Christ and some trollop he jumpe offcthe cross to chase.
If fact, What became the USSR was a designed conflict where not only a coup murdered the innocent hero of the US Civil war, it replaced the culture with a godless devilish construct of oppression and poverty, to bring continual threats of war to Insure continual indiustry, our best and only export left, we have no national good will to brag about any more: THIS IS GENOCIDE based on a false biblical eschatology where doctrinal error was inserted in Ezekiel chapter 38:3.
A simple research into that verse in all translations displays the man made error to obfuscate truth: ‘rosh’ means ‘head’, Not Russia!
Biden calling for the removal of Putin wasn’t a slip.
The West’s anti-Russian pogrom was a very direct hint-hint, but this kind of spells out what is expected of Russian Atlanticists.
Remove Putin or be yourselves removed from participation in the Western world.
The level of directness is a hint of the desperation behind NATO’s closed doors. Yes, the Russian Ukraine campaign isn’t going very well, but the West likewise underestimated how much support Putin and Russia enjoy in the non-Western world.
The WEF Reset wasn’t counting on the rest of the non-Western world not being Reset in the West’s favour, but the neocon West elite being the last man standing atop a pile of collapsed world economies.
Yet the anti-Russian narrative outside the West has completely collapsed into a hole of incredulity wider and deeper than COVID-1984’s fail. Not to mention the over-the-top racism against Russians strikes a sympathetic chord in every non-white culture.
The West smashed supply chains directed to itself – but the rest of the world is trading with each other instead, increasingly less in US dollars and Euros but in their own national currencies and Chinese Renmimbi.
March 23, 2022 NATO Is a Problem, Not the Solution
While in no way excusing Russia’s criminal invasion, NATO expansion eastward increased its likelihood. Although we’ll never know if the war would not have happened under different circumstances, after a month of Russian violence against Ukraine the two countries’ negotiators have reportedly agreed that it will reject joining NATO as part of a peace pact.
Yes, NATO is the problem and not the solution. It’s a good thing Lindsey Graham is not the president, he says Putin should be assassinated. It’s bad enough that he is a senator.
These control freaks are mentally twisted and drunk on power on Kstreet.
Jan 1, 2012 John McCain & Lindsey Graham Justifying The NDAA Bill
John McCain & Lindsey Graham explaining why the NDAA bill, also known as the indefinite detention bill, must become law. The bill allows for any American citizen deemed a “terrorist” to be arrested & detained without a trial. This bill was signed into law on December 31, 2011 (New Year’s Eve) by President Barack Obama.
What we need is regime change in AMERICA!
In Russia nobody calls Putin an illegitimate president..Biden is gambling World peace in his efforts to hide his involvement in the most corrupt country in Europe..Zelinski has been promised everything if he just keeps the war rolling..This is Bidens’s war
“In Russia nobody calls Putin an illegitimate president unless they want to go to prison or to the grave.”
Fixed, no charge.
Yes, sure..That’s why 80 % of all Russians support him in Ukraine and Russian news are censored in the West…Or you know better, a true Russia expert that never left his PC..Just because Russian news or voices are censored doesn’t mean that you can’t find the truth out there
Autocratic leadership there is required due to over 100 years of western treachery in Russia beginning with Carnegie’s prolific books of being an alpha dog of opportunity and a Rail Road Empire Builder to sell INDUSTRIAL Rail Road SALVATION to Agrarian Russia! To do to eastern Russia what we did to Western America. $ $ $ $.
Example: We do not honor the 1972 treaty that prevented Starwars SDI in ~2001 because it was made with a country that no longer legally exists: The U.S.S.R.. We built it. We privatized it. We are one degree from being a Monarchy ourselves.
Ukraine is example A.
A 1%’rs Playground, an Off shore tax haven, An unregulated and immoral shythole of a country with privatized Military accoutrement production.
You’re full of BS
And what were George sr. and George jr. approval ratings after our invasions of Iraq?
For many years of Putin’s presidency, there was plenty of criticism of Putin in the print media in Russia.
