One was a clown that has been sucking off the public tit for 60 years, and the other was an actual clown. Together, the Ukraine War has been one big clown show.
President Joe Biden visited Poland last week to show his Western alliance that the U.S. support for more war in Ukraine was unwavering, and sold his pitch by claiming that the entire free world was at risk over the border war.
Biden addressed leaders from NATO’s Eastern countries—which have been the biggest supporters of Ukraine—and said they know “better than anyone what’s at stake in this conflict, not just for Ukraine, but for the freedom of democracies throughout Europe and around the world.”
The New York Times noted in its account of Biden’s visit to Poland that Ukrainian forces are faced with Russian President Vladimir Putin “once again” trying to take over the country with another offensive.
The Western media’s propaganda campaign on Friday—which marked the one-year anniversary of the Russian invasion—included politicians and news outlets repeating the claim that “Kyiv is still standing” despite Russia’s best attempt to take the city. There was no mention that Russia did not have any intention of taking the city or that Putin could take Kyiv within days if he didn’t care about civilian casualties.
Biden said in a speech that the NATO alliance must remain united and, once again, vowed to defend “every inch” of the alliance.
“The idea that over 100,000 forces would invade another country—since World War II, nothing like that has happened. Things have changed radically, and we have to, we have to make sure we can change them back,” Biden said, according to the Times.
TRENDPOST: Biden’s claim that 100,000 forces invading another country never happened since the end of WWII is a total lie. In 1969 the U.S. sent over 500,000 young men to Vietnam after its invasion.
Yet, the New York Times never mentioned this and it is the same with their daily coverage of the Ukraine War. Day after day they report on Russian “atrocities” and show pictures of destruction in Ukraine… but they never report on America’s endless war since WWII that killed millions and cost taxpayers trillions.
The Times ran an article to promote the bond between Biden and Zelensky to make it seem as though they are bound for the history books. When Biden first met with the Ukrainian president last week, the paper said the closeness was palpable and, upon first meeting, greeted “each other with an easy familiarity of old friends.”
Biden asked Zelensky about his children and said, “It’s amazing to see you.”
The paper said Biden may be “in shock” that Zelensky has not been killed by Russian forces, even though Israel’s former Prime Minister Neftali Bennett said Putin assured him that Zelensky would not be targeted.
The Times said Zelensky and Biden speak to each other on the phone and the conversation usually ends with the Ukrainian president calling for more weapons, and faster.
TRENDPOST: Last June, Biden lost his temper when Zelensky asked for more money after the White House just announced a $1 billion injection for Kyiv. NBC News, citing four unnamed sources, reported Monday that Biden had “barely finished telling Zelensky he’d just greenlighted another $1 billion in U.S. military assistance for Ukraine when Zelenskyy started listing all the additional help he needed and wasn’t getting.” (See “MUCH OF THE WORLD REFUSES TO FOLLOW U.S./NATO INTO WWIII” 21 Feb 2023, “SCHOLZ, MACRON AGREE THAT UKRAINE WAR MUST GO ON”21 Feb 2023 and “POLAND, SLOVAKIA PUSHING FOR FIGHTER JETS FOR UKRAINE, AS RUSSIA SAY THEY ARE AT WAR” 14 Feb 2023.)
The Times also compared Biden and Zelensky to WWII leaders, noting that admirers of the Ukrainian president often liken him to Winston Churchill and Biden “finds himself assigned the role of Franklin D. Roosevelt before Pearl Harbor, mustering the so-called Arsenal of Democracy to arm European allies without drawing the United States directly into a war.”
The paper interviewed Michael McFaul, the ambassador to Russia under President Obama, who once admitted during a debate that part of the job of a diplomat is to lie, said Biden believes he’s not getting the recognition he deserves.
“He’s mobilized America and the Pentagon has done more than it’s ever done before, and he’s frustrated he doesn’t get more praise for that,” McFaul said.
Sy Hersh, the Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist who wrote an expose on the Nord Stream attacks allegedly committed by the Biden administration, told The Trends Journal in a phone interview last week that most Western reporters only have a few contacts in government and have essentially no international sources, which is part of the reason stories about Ukraine are viewed only through the American lens.
We have noted that WWIII has begun and last week just solidified that forecast.
China’s Wang Yi visited Moscow and said the Chinese-Russian partnership will not be affected by the U.S.’s position on the matter. Wang said the relationship is “not aimed at any third party, and will not accept any meddling from any third party, and even less will it accept duress from any third party.”
Wang met with Russian foreign minister Sergei Lavrov and Security Council secretary Nikolai Patrushev before meeting with Putin. The U.S. said China is considering providing Moscow with weapons, which is a claim Beijing denies. Wang insisted that his hope that the war in Ukraine ends. He said he “approved of Russia’s reaffirmation that it is willing to resolve the issue through dialogue and negotiations.”
The Chinese diplomat was assured by Russia that Moscow supports Beijing’s position on Taiwan, Xinjiang, Tibet, and Hong Kong.
The FT reported that Patrushev said the West has been using these hot-button issues to “discredit” China. He said the relationship between the two countries managed to withstand pressure from the international community.
