President Joe Biden made a surprise visit to Kyiv, Ukraine, on Monday to demonstrate how committed the U.S. is to supporting Ukraine but things quickly unraveled and now Americans want answers from the White House.
President Biden was initially supposed to land in Poland to meet with Polish President Andrzej Duda to mark the one-year anniversary of the war between Russia and Ukraine. But the White House left out that Biden would be making a surprise visit to Kyiv to meet Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy.
During that visit, a video was shot of Biden and Zelenskyy calmly walking the streets of Kyiv. But what was strange was despite the sounds of gunfire and an active air raid siren in the background, the President’s Secret Service detail seemed entirely unbothered.
Many quickly pointed out that the video was without a doubt staged and was created as propaganda. But it also raises questions about how Kyiv can be under siege yet safe enough for the leader of the free world to walk around in.
Propaganda and lies
Despite the obvious propaganda campaign being waged, the mainstream media fell for it hook line and sinker and wrote glowing profiles of both Biden and Zelenskyy.
The New York Times ran an article titled, “Biden Visits Embattled Ukraine as Air-Raid Siren Sounds.”
Other outlets also ran exciting stories on how the White House secretly pulled off Biden’s trip to Ukraine seemingly to show Vladimir Putin that he isn’t in control of anything and that he is losing the war.
Then it was discovered that the Biden administration had actually informed Russia of Biden’s plans. The Kremlin quickly dismissed the visit and it seems the objective of intimidating Russia was merely more propaganda for the west.
What’s worse is that Russia is using Biden’s visit to Kyiv as proof that the war in Ukraine is really a proxy war between Russia and the United States.
Biden dragging us to war
President Biden’s leadership has set America on a collision course with Russia, all for a staged video to send the mainstream media into frothing praise.
President Biden has pledged to support Ukraine no matter what and has effectively given Zelenskyy a blank check even as Americans are still fighting to recover from the Covid-19 pandemic.
The United States has already sent billions to support Ukraine’s war effort with no oversight or accountability.
We can only hope that President Biden doesn’t make a major mistake and plunge us into war with a nuclear-capable nation like Russia. The consequences of such a confrontation could be cataclysmic.
