Biden’s Director Of Communications Defends His Call For Putin’s Removal From Power



Joe Biden

On Tuesday, President Biden’s Director of Communications Kate Bedingfield claimed that Biden calling for Russian President Vladimir Putin to be removed from power “did not represent a policy change” from the United States.

“Forty-five minutes after the President’s remarks wrapped in Warsaw on Saturday, that was when a statement landed in everyone’s inboxes from an unnamed White House official saying that, no, the administration did not, in fact, change its policy with regards to Russia,” a reporter said.

“I’m wondering if you can tell us anything about what happened in the interim — in that 45 minutes.  Did the President himself conclude that perhaps there needed to be some further clarification?  Or did White House advisors come to him and say, ‘Perhaps you should revisit your recent remarks’?  Why was that statement issued?” the reporter asked.

“Well, I can tell you from working for President Biden for seven years that only President Biden decides what President Biden is going to say,” Bedingfield replied. “So, the statement was simply a confirmation of what the President — of what you then heard from the President himself yesterday — that that statement did not represent a policy change — official policy change on behalf the United States.”

Over the weekend, Biden said that Putin “cannot remain in power” – which he doubled down on shortly afterwards.

“A dictator bent on rebuilding an empire will never erase a people’s love for liberty.  Brutality will never grind down their will to be free,” Biden said. “Ukraine will never be a victory for Russia — for free people refuse to live in a world of hopelessness and darkness.”

“We will have a different future — a brighter future rooted in democracy and principle, hope and light, of decency and dignity, of freedom and possibilities,” Biden continued. “For God’s sake, this man cannot remain in power.”

On Monday, Biden told reporters that he made “no apologies” for his call for Putin to be removed from power, and that he did not view it as a provocation to Russia.

“I was expressing my outrage at the behavior of this man.  It’s outrageous.  It’s outrageous.  And it’s more an aspiration than anything.  He shouldn’t be in power,” Biden said. “There’s no — I mean, people like this shouldn’t be ruling countries, but they do.  The fact they do — but it doesn’t mean I can’t express my outrage about it.”

    Further infuriating Putin will prolong the war in Ukraine. More innocent Ukrainians and Russians will die because of Slow Joe’s saber rattling. It’s a fools errand to poke a nuclear bear. Biden does it routinely.

Report: Ukraine Sunk Russian Warship By Using US Intel



Ukraine sunk the Russian warship Moskva last month using United States intelligence, according to a new report from NBC News.

“A guided missile cruiser carrying a crew of 510, the Moskva was the flagship of Russia’s Black Sea Fleet,” NBC News reported. “It sank on April 14 after being struck by two Ukrainian Neptune anti-ship missiles, U.S. officials said. Moscow said the vessel sank after a fire. The Moskva was the largest Russian warship sunk in combat since World War II. American officials said there were significant Russian casualties, but they don’t know how many.”

“The attack happened after Ukrainian forces asked the Americans about a ship sailing in the Black Sea south of Odesa, U.S. officials told NBC News,” the outlet added. “The U.S. identified it as the Moskva, officials said, and helped confirm its location, after which the Ukrainians targeted the ship.”

The news comes the day after a report from The New York Times revealed that the United States has provided Ukraine with intelligence on Russian military units that has enabled the country to kill multiple Russian generals.

“The targeting help is part of a classified effort by the Biden administration to provide real-time battlefield intelligence to Ukraine,” The New York Times reported. “That intelligence also includes anticipated Russian troop movements gleaned from recent American assessments of Moscow’s secret battle plan for the fighting in the Donbas region of eastern Ukraine, the officials said. Officials declined to specify how many generals had been killed as a result of U.S. assistance.”

“The United States has focused on providing the location and other details about the Russian military’s mobile headquarters, which relocate frequently,” the outlet added. “Ukrainian officials have combined that geographic information with their own intelligence — including intercepted communications that alert the Ukrainian military to the presence of senior Russian officers — to conduct artillery strikes and other attacks that have killed Russian officers.”

Putin’s Personal Cameraman Quit After Recording His Invasion Speech



Russian President Vladimir Putin’s personal cameraman, Ilya Filatov, reportedly quit his job immediately after filming Putin’s announcement that he would be invading Ukraine.

The timing of Filatov’s exit from a job that he had for over a decade led to speculation that he actually faced dismissal because of negative comments he allegedly made about Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

However, Filatov “denies this version,” according to independent Russian news site The Insider, which is banned in Russia. Filatov claims that he quit because he “reached the ceiling in the profession” and that he was “tired of sitting in quarantine for many months,” which he was required to do to reduce the likelihood he could contract COVID-19 and infect Putin.

Filatov’s sudden departure from his long time role as Putin’s cameraman was part of a pattern of Russian employee exits following comments suggesting opposition to the Russian invasion of Ukraine. As explained by The Insider, “Since the beginning of Russia’s military invasion of Ukraine, one by one employees of Russian TV channels have been fired or left the frame. On April 21, Alexander Gurevich, the host of the One Hundred to One program, resigned from the VGTRK . Prior to this, anti-war comments on his behalf appeared under the episodes of the show on YouTube. In March, it became known that Zhanna Agalakova, an employee of Channel One, quit , and journalist Vadim Glusker quit NTV.”

The Insider also noted how Marina Ovsyannikova, an employee of Channel One, “broke into the live newscast for a few seconds with a poster “Stop the war! Don’t believe the propaganda, they lie to you here.” Before the action, she recorded a video message in which she condemned the actions of the Russian army on the territory of Ukraine. On March 15, the journalist was fined 30,000 rubles. In April, she became a freelance correspondent for the German Welt.”
