Russian President Vladimir Putin Tells Biden to Back Off

The liberal media couldn’t give former President Trump credit for anything, and in the 2020 election they covered for Joe Biden like paid members of the DNC.

In the upside down world of our progressive media censors, Trump was a dangerous dictator and Biden is a peaceful and reasonable man. 

Nothing could be further from the truth. 

In fact, in addition to his border crisis and his difficulty walking upstairs, Biden has helped provoke a real crisis in foreign policy that’s coming to a boil. 

As Trump said, Russian President Vladimir Putin respects one thing: strength. That’s one thing Biden doesn’t have, and Putin is now warning him and all of Russia’s enemies to back off or they will “deeply regret” it.

Russia’s State of the Union

In his remarks on Russia’s current position, Putin emphasized that Russia is on the rise and that the West and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) are collapsing, weak and bitter. His comments are more than just idle talk, especially considering Russia is doing a massive troop buildup along the border with Ukraine, which is one of NATO’s top allies. 

The Russian media has been cheerleading the authoritarian leader’s comments, in which he describes the West as being in chaos and said that Russia will do whatever is necessary to “defend our interests.” 

In Putin’s point of view, Trump was a worthy adversary who he could agree with on a few things. Unlike the corporate media’s propaganda, Trump was far from in Putin’s pocket and in fact launched a strike on the Russian-backed Syrian regime and Trump also hit Russian Wagner group mercenaries operating in Syria. 

But the two had at least a workable relationship. 

That’s not the case with Biden, who Putin regards as deeply anti-Russian, saying last month that liberal Americans “may think that we are like them, but we are different, with a different genetic, cultural and moral code.”

What’s Going on in Russia?

Putin is facing an unstable situation in Russia. 

His jailing and attempted poisoning of opposition figure Alexei Navalny has brought the West firmly against him and increased media denunciation leading to bigger and bigger protests within Russia, including against Putin’s government. Navalny is currently almost dead in prison after going on a hunger strike. 

Putin doesn’t care about the Western criticism and is planning to send soldiers to crush protests and rioters. 

The second big problem Russia faces is Ukraine. Over 120,000 Russian troops are now gathered on the Crimean peninsula and poised for an invasion of Ukraine. Putin says it’s all just training exercises but that seems highly unlikely. 

Russia has a long history of conflict and distrust of the Anglo-American World stretching back to before the Russian Revolution in 1917 and Putin clearly sees the US as a falling power. He is testing more powerful weapons and ignoring international sanctions, while supplying separatists in eastern Ukraine and cracking down on opposition at home with increasing brutality. 

Putin once said that the collapse of the Soviet Union was the greatest tragedy of the 20th Century, by which he did not mean communism but the place of Russia as a world power and international geopolitical force. 

Putin could be getting ready to take over Ukraine. And he clearly doesn’t respect Biden, challenging him to a debate last month and consistently mocking him.

All the anti-Russian liberals who voted Biden into office may want to check themselves, considering they’ve put in an old man and his fanatical VP Kamala Harris who can’t stand up to Putin or stop his global ambitions without having the situation spiral into an awful disaster.
