Biden Stumbles with Mute Button and His Words in Embarrassing Call With Putin

Published

on

Before President Joe Biden could present himself as a tough, credible leader of the free world, a force to be reckoned with, he first needed to figure out how to take himself off of mute. In an embarrassing moment, Biden seemed to begin speaking to Putin, but no audio could be heard.

His microphone was muted. Putin sat patiently, smiling, and said “I welcome you, Mr. President.” After some clear fumbling, Biden said “there you go” once he was able to unmute himself.

Unfortunately, Biden would have done himself a greater service by not unmuting himself. Once he was audible, his words were just as fumbled as his search for the mute button. “Hello! Ha, ha ha, ha, ha. Good to see you again” said Biden.

“I uh, unfortunately last time I – we didn’t get to see each other at the G20. I hope next time we meet, we do it in person” Biden said. Putin was left with little choice but to smile and nod. Despite the rocky start, the White House released a statement saying the call was productive.

Biden “voiced the deep concerns of the United States and our European Allies about Russia’s escalation of forces surrounding Ukraine and made clear that the U.S. and our allies would respond with strong economic and other measures in the event of military escalation.”

“The two presidents tasked their teams to follow up, and the U.S. will do so in close coordination with allies and partners. The presidents also discussed the U.S.-Russia dialogue on Strategic Stability, a separate dialogue on ransomware, as well as joint work on regional issues such as Iran” the White House added.

    For NATO to court the Ukraine is sheer folly. The Crimea is ethnically Russian not Ukrainian and has been a strategic necessity to Russia for centuries. The Ukraine being a member of NATO? It’s clearly Russia’s sphere of influence. NATO isn’t acting in good faith. It’s harassing Russia and Putin isn’t going to stand for it. Russia isn’t going to tolerate NATO missiles in the Ukraine any more than Kennedy tolerated Russian missiles in Cuba. Quit trying to restart the Cold War. Russian isn’t the Soviet Union. They’re a crumbling old empire that just needs to be left alone so it can exist. China is ‘the threat’ Biden and his ‘carbon copy’ Obama are globalists and love the ‘new world order’ so they’re happy to sell out America for what they see as the great good globally.

    Biden is a complete laughing stock and Putin knows he is weak as does every other world leader, especially China. Going to war against Russia would be a colossal mistake, especially with our weakened military! Thanks to the military leaders going woke & Biden’s mandate’s, thousands of servicemen and women are being forced out of the military! They no longer want Patriots, Christians or Conservatives in our military, and have done everything possible to get rid of them. By doing so, and allowing cross dressers (transgenders), our military will be weak, ineffective and a laughing stock. Most of our brave Navy Seals are being forced to quit over the mandates. Who will take their place? Unqualified people who will put our country at risk! Way to go Joe!

Iran Launches Missile Into Space As Biden Admin Fails To Negotiate New Nuclear Deal

Published

Joe Biden

On Sunday, Iran’s state television announced that the country had launched a solid-fueled rocket into space, drawing criticism from the United States ahead of plans for continued negotiations over the Iranian nuclear deal.

“It’s unclear when or where the rocket was launched, but the announcement came after satellite photos showed preparations at Imam Khomeini Spaceport in Iran’s rural Semnan province, the site of Iran’s frequent failed attempts to put a satellite into orbit,” the Associated Press reported. “Iran had previously acknowledged that it planned more tests for the satellite-carrying rocket, which it first launched in February of last year.”

“Ahmad Hosseini, spokesman for Iran’s Defense Ministry, said Zuljanah, a 25.5 meter-long rocket, was capable of carrying a satellite of 220 kilograms (485 pounds) that would ultimately gather data in low-earth orbit and promote Iran’s space industry. Zuljanah is named for the horse of Imam Hussein, the grandson of the Prophet Muhammad,” the Associated Press added.

According to the report, the White House is aware of Iran’s announcement and said the move was “unhelpful and destabilizing.”

Iran’s state-run media aired dramatic footage of the missile launch amid heightened tensions over Iran’s nuclear program, which has accelerated as President Biden’s administration has failed to negotiate a new nuclear deal with Iran.

According to a report earlier this year, three Biden administration negotiators working on a renewed nuclear deal with Iran gave up and left the team because they thought that President Biden was being too weak in dealing with Iran during negotiations.

“U.S. officials confirmed over the weekend that Richard Nephew, the deputy special envoy for Iran, has left the team. Mr. Nephew, an architect of previous economic sanctions on Iran, had advocated a tougher posture in the current negotiations, and he hasn’t attended the talks in Vienna since early December,” The Wall Street Journal reported. “Two other members of the team, which is led by State Department veteran Robert Malley, have stepped back from the talks, the people familiar said, because they also wanted a harder negotiating stance.”

Biden Suggests Only Solution To Gas Prices Is Letting Putin Invade Europe

Published

Joe Biden

On Wednesday, President Biden suggested that the only solution to high gas prices is to allow Russian President Vladimir Putin to invade parts of Europe.

“For all those Republicans in Congress criticizing me today for high gas prices in America, are you now saying we were wrong to support Ukraine?” Biden said. “Are you saying we were wrong to stand up to Putin?  Are you saying that we would rather have lower gas prices in America and Putin’s iron fist in Europe?”

“I don’t believe that,” he continued. “Look, I get the easy politics of the attack.  I get that.  But the simple truth is gas prices are up almost $2.00 a gallon because of Vladimir Putin’s ruthless attack on Ukraine, and we wouldn’t let him get away with it.  And we’re doing everything we can to reduce this pain at the pump now.”

However, the increase in gas prices since Russia invaded Ukraine is closer to $1 than it is to $2. On February 24, the day Russia invaded Ukraine, national gas prices were at $3.54 per gallon, and on June 22, the day of Biden’s speech, gas prices were at $4.95 per gallon – which is an increase of $1.41.

Gas prices began rising shortly after Biden took office. From January 20, 2021, to February 24, 2022, gas prices soared from $2.40 per gallon to $3.54 per gallon – an increase of nearly 50 percent.
