President Joe Biden went after Vladimir Putin in an emotional address in Warsaw on Saturday, March 26, 2022 stating “for god's sake this man cannot remain in power.”

Biden also warned Putin not to take his ambitions outside of Ukraine: “Don't even think about moving on one single inch of NATO territory”  See video HERE.

Secretary of State Blinken, during a press conference in Jerusalem, alongside the Israeli prime minister the following day, was forced to walk back Biden's unscripted declaration that Putin ‘cannot remain in power' and assures that America has no 'strategy of regime change in Russia or anywhere else.’ The President's point was that Putin cannot be allowed to exercise power over his neighbors or the regionEarlier, Biden has called Putin a butcher after he visited with Ukraine refugees.

Tom Nichols at The Atlantic called the comments about a Putin ouster a “gaffe” and an “unforced error.”

"Biden’s words also comes dangerously close to calling Putin’s bluff on nuclear war, coming on the heels of a Russian announcement that they would in fact use nuclear weapons in the case of “an existential threat for our country."

What could be a bigger existential threat to Putin, than his overthrow?

 Putin reacts to Biden's remarks
 
BREAKING, March 26, 2022:  PUTIN PREPARED REMARKS TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE LEAKED FOLLOWING BIDEN CALL FOR REGIME CHANGE [DEVELOPING] . .  . Russian Foreign Ministry sources.
 
The beginning paragraph is copied below:
 
From: Russian Federation President Vladimir Putin, March 26, 2022
 
“My dear friends in America,
 
This is a special moment in history as I address you directly for the first time. As the President of the Russian Federation, I felt the need to express my views to you directly without the filter of media or governmental organizations who obscure the fact our two nations have existed peacefully for centuries. In fact, we were allies through not one but two world wars. We have cooperated, culturally and scientifically for years, including most recently, on the international space station. Russian rockets have taken Americans into space and American ships have delivered much needed medical and humanitarian aid to us in our times of need. 
 
What follows takes on an entirely different tone.
 
Whether or not Putin goes through with his leaked remarks to the American people, for certain Putin's wrath and fury over Biden's remarks are for real and should be of grave concern to the American people and this nation.
 
This is definitely not good on the world stage.

  1. Remember: those who actually voted for this loser did so with the childish excuse
    “We don’t like Trump’s mean ‘tweets!'”
    Well, idiots, do you like the incoherent ravings of who you voted for, NOW?
    Biden may be the smartest man who was ever elected from Delaware, because those who continually elected Joe to Congress, HAD to be even more stupid than him!
