Does Joe Biden Really Want to Get Rid of Vladimir Putin?

Did President Joe Biden Call For Regime Change in Russia? – President Joe Biden wrapped up a three-day European trip with Western European leaders where the primary message was one of unity. On the surface all was well, the president took time to eat pizza with the troops in Poland, held a small Ukrainian refugee child, and carried himself like the leader of the free world,

But when he strayed several times during the trip from his prepared remarks, things went awry, and his last comments about Russian President Vladimir Putin while in Warsaw, will overshadow everything he tried to accomplish as he clearly appeared to call for regime change in Moscow. 

His speech while in Warsaw yesterday was forceful and reiterated many of the same points that Washington has driven home: this isn’t just about Ukraine but a generational battle for the democracies of freedom. 

“A dictator bent on rebuilding an empire, will never erase the people’s love for liberty,” Biden said at the end of his speech at the Royal Castle in Poland. “Ukraine will never be a victory for Russia, for free people refuse to live in a world of hopelessness and darkness.”

Then came the line that will reverberate in the days ahead.

“For God’s sake, this man cannot remain in power,” the president said clearly and slowly for emphasis.

A White House official immediately after the speech tried to do some damage control and said that the comment wasn’t part of his prepared speech, that the president had spoken off the cuff, and that he wasn’t calling for the ouster of Putin but that President Biden was simply saying that Putin can’t be allowed to exercise power over his neighbors in the region. That line which was clearly spoken, not what the president meant, his White House staff tried to spin. 

“The President’s point was that Putin cannot be allowed to exercise power over his neighbors or the region,” the official said. “He was not discussing Putin’s power in Russia, or regime change.”

A Deliberate Change in Strategy Walked Back? 

The president has thus far tempered his remarks on the war in Ukraine, trying to stop an escalation of the war to Western European NATO countries. He’s steered a course to unite Western Europe behind a policy to help the Ukrainian people in their struggle to remain free. He has been critical of Putin personally calling him a “war criminal.” 

“The West is now stronger, more united than it has ever been,” Biden said during his speech. “This battle will not be won in days or months, either. We need to steel ourselves for the long fight ahead.”

This statement, however, sent shockwaves throughout Europe both East and West. Many of our European allies are now left wondering if the official policy of the United States is to remove Putin from power and create a regime change. That would be a major escalation of the war. 

The reaction from Moscow was quick and what would be expected. Kremlin spokesman Dmitri S. Peskov said Putin’s fate was not in the hands of the American president. “It’s not for Biden to decide,” Peskov said to the media after Joe Biden’s speech. “The president of Russia is elected by the Russians.”

After meeting with some of the millions of Ukrainian refugees in Poland, the president was clearly moved by their plight. “I’m always surprised by the depth and strength of the human sprint, I mean it sincerely,” Biden said after the meeting. “They are an amazing group of people.”

But he doubled down on his criticism of Putin. When asked what he thought of Putin’s actions in Ukraine, including the indiscriminate bombing of civilians in many of the large cities and towns, the president was uncharacteristically blunt. “He’s a butcher,” Joe Biden said.

    Biden’s dementia does not allow one to understand that the only country in the world, Russia, can completely destroy the United States not as a country, but as a territory on which the United States is located.
    From this, we see only Biden’s aged hysteria, from which all of Russia and China and South America and even Trump laugh.

    Joe biden is clearly the (new) antichrist of our time, if his brain cells are still functionally properly.

    He’s behaving like adolfo, calling for the getting rid of people who stand in his way, those who are obstacles to his path of greatness.

    Biden’s the new adoldo, the latest antichrist, the newly minted heir apparent on earth to lucifer, his daddy he’ll seeing very soon, probably before the midterms are over.

    Biden, the 80-year-old piece of walking dross, just revealed his secret aim for manufacturing the russo-ukraine war. To interfere in russia and forment political havoc in the country, as like what US did in iraq.

    Putin has been right all along, he’s the man brave enough to stop the new genghis, the new hitler.

    Biden will eventually get US to participate in the fighting in ukraine, possibly setting off ww3 in europe, and raising the forbidden curtain for nuclear armageddon.

    How did US ended up with this biden, cerebrally challenged and ailed by dementia, and possible alzheimer’s.

    Biden clearly and singlehandedly wanted a showdown with russia, even though moscow has enough nukes to fry US twice over, he’s crazy. Or just plain evil.

    Other nations must take notice of this man, an 80-year-old piece of crap, and his intentions which are clearly EVIL and against civil and international laws.

    The US must investigate biden’s family ties with foreign countries, especially hunter’s investments in ukraine, and also his personal involvement in setting up bio research labs in kyiv.

    Biden’s work there could well be the covert groundwork forshadowing the current crisis in ukraine, and the loose talk about chemicals and bio warfare parroted by nato officials in recent days.

    Biden is clearly off the charts. He’s a fool or the devil’s top disciple.

    Joe Biden is the proof we need to say that the US practises fascist democracy, or demented democracy, where the system demands the white house occupant to prosecute regime change around the world, using either mountains of greenbacks abd the CIA, or sending in the marines, the bombs and b-52s. Or all of them.

    This is fascism at its finest, the ultimate version of fascism, fascism that’s powered by full-court press. Not the crude, primitive or unsophisticated type of fascism promoted by adolf hitler via his panzer columns and dive bombers.

    Biden is the real figure, the bona fide fascismo leader.

    Joe Biden has fully revealed or exposed America as a nation full of nonsense, or full of crap. And biden himself is the biggest walking piece of crap.

    The US had always been a beacon of great artificial nonsense or huge ersatz crap, as amplified by the likes of carter and clinton.

    Carter was full of nonsense, first unnecessarily crying wolf over afghanistan and then the dumb boycott of moscow olympics while rosalyn carter posed for photos with john wayne gacy who raped and murdered scores of young men and boys while strutting around as a carter supporter.

    Clinton incessantly bombed iraq while president, including faking devious reasons for the bloody Dec 1998 bombing of iraq aka monica lewinsky bombing of iraq which eventually led to 9/11.

    Now biden is out to outdo both carter and clinton, trying his darnest to kickstart ww3 in europe by targeting russia.

    He’s the biggest piece of crap ever to enter the white house which already has a very sorry record of hosting piles of human crap or human nonsense.

    President Joe Biden is similar in many respects to Madeleine Albright, the butcher of iraqi kids while she was in high office.

    Now biden is in high office, the office of the chief executive no less, and he is one irresponsible butcher, personally overseeing the butchery in ukraine, using ukrainian blood to bring his war plan against russia to life.

    Like Albright, biden will have to visit the pearly gates very soon, and will have to fully account for spilling innocent blood. 2024 ? Yeah, 2024 there, at the pearly gates!

    This idiot is going to start a war no one wants with his demented statements. I never thought we would need a five second delay to delete the statements of a president but we are here. Someone should keep this idiot away from any more microphones.
