Barack Obama Urges Americans to Unite
Behind Joe Biden and Embrace Economic
Pain for Ukraine

Original Article

Posted By: Dreadnought, 2/24/2022 9:47:02 PM

Former President Barack Obama issued a message of support for President Joe Biden on Thursday, urging Americans to unite behind economic sanctions against Russia. “Every American, regardless of party, should support President Biden’s efforts, in coordination with our closest allies, to impose hard-hitting sanctions on Russia,” Obama said in a statement sent to reporters, defending Biden’s sanctions as a serious attempt to put “a real price on Russia’s autocratic elites.” Obama’s statement of support for Biden follows his own failure to stop Putin from annexing Crimea in 2014 when he was president. The former president also urged Americans to embrace any economic pain that they would suffer

Barry is building his 3rd mansion in Hawaii and wants the rest of us to suck it up and bare the pain of higher prices for energy. Talk about an out of touch elitist bastxxx. That headline made me so mad I could spit.

If Donald Trump was still president (as he was actually elected to be), Russia would not be invading Ukraine today. It's that simple. Putin is an evil man, but a great leader. Biden is an evil man, and a weak and impotent leader. Trump is a good man, and a great leader. That is why Putin didn't pull this garbage under Trump, but knows he has nothing to fear from Biden no matter what Putin does!!!

Mansions in Kalorama, Martha’s Vineyard and Hawaii and the cry, “Let ‘em eat bugs!”. If you watch closely enough you’ll find that the media is gearing up to promote the eating of insects in lieu of meat. If successful, this will mark a sea change in Western attitudes. I miss PDJT. He was a good man and good leader. He spoke sanely loudly and was hated for it.

Obama has now told us that he is not an "America Firster"; that we must sacrifice our nation's economy and the well-being of our citizens to benefit others. He's trying to tell us he is a globalist and wants to abolish national borders and promote worldwide equity, and we should believe him.

Sorry, Barack the American people have had enough of foolish democrat wars. You guys are great at getting us into them but never have any plan to win or get out of the mess you have created. We all know how you feel about this country, you hate it, you have hated it since you were a child and nothing has changed. You will do anything and everything to embarrass us and make us weak but the moron in the White House cannot and will not change our hearts or our minds. We are Americans and as individuals we stand united against oppressors like you and your ilk. We have seen you try to step all over us for 2 yrs feigning a plague that was little more than a bad flu season when you actually look at the data. Your desire for complete control of this nation is every bit as bad as Putin trying to impose his will on the Ukraine. The only difference between that dicatator and the wannabe dictator that you are is that he at least loves his country. We know that you never have and never will love this one.

Americans rally around the flag when attacked. But, they don't rally around an idiot. Especially, when that idiot's bumbling has precipitated a war. Democrats like wars because Americans don't like to switch horses in mid stream. It helps them get reelected. But, I think they will make an exception in this case. At least I hope so. We do not need another disaster like the Afghanistan retreat.

Who does Obama think he’s talking to? There are very few people left anywhere on the political spectrum who are willing to unite behind Biden for any reason, especially another foreign policy disaster totally created by Democrats. If Obama wants to be known as the master pulling Biden’s strings he needs to study his poll numbers and the complete mess he has made of this country. This looks more like sabotage.

Biden helped Russia by destroying domestic American oil production and now we, specifically, are to inflict pain(mutual) on them? Most Americans are not buying it, for all we know Biden and Obama are all for the invasion of Ukraine and the victory of communism. The administration talking manikins, such as Mr Blinken and the buffoon general, were doing play by play of the early stages of Ukraine invasion, as it they were sports announcers. It was/is a disgrace.

We don't have a dog in this fight, the Ukraine is just another conflict we need to stay away from. We have a habit of getting involved in these things at the cost of many American lives. We occupy them for years and eventually leave and in every instance the innocent people of those countries are worse off. We've got our own war here between Americans and the Marxist usurpers who are destroying America.

Why should we listen to one idiot telling us to support another demented idiot. The world was a much more dangerous place when Obama left office than it was when he entered so he hardly has credibility on international matters. And, the world is a much more dangerous place after Biden's year in office than it was when he took office. Don't recall any other president that lost two countries within the first year in office. Pretty sad.

A US official confirms Ukraine President Volodymyr rejected an offer from the American government to evacuate Kyiv. A senior American intelligence official with direct knowledge of the conversation quoted the president as saying that “the fight is here” and that he needed anti-tank ammunition but “not a ride.” Zelensky’s whereabouts were being kept secret after told European leaders in a call Thursday that he was Russia’s No. 1 target — and that they might not see him again alive. His office later released a video of him standing with senior aides outside the presidential office

A majority of American voters say that Russian President Vladimir Putin would not have invaded Ukraine had former President Trump still been in office, according to a new survey released on Friday. A new Harvard Center for American Political Studies (CAPS)-Harris Poll survey released Friday found that 62 percent of those polled believed Putin would not be moving against Ukraine if Trump had been president. When looking strictly at the answers of Democrats and Republicans, 85 percent of Republicans and 38 percent of Democrats answered this way. However, 38 percent of all Americans polled believed that Putin would have invaded Ukraine even if Trump had been president. A majority of Americans polled

On Tuesday, Russian President Vladimir Putin took to the airwaves to try to speed up his victory in Ukraine. Looking dead-eyed into the camera on Friday, Vladimir Putin gave one of the most bizarre speeches of his 22 years as Russia’s leader, a directive that managed to sound alarming even in a week when he has ordered tanks into Ukraine and missile strikes on Kyiv. “Once again I speak to the Ukrainian soldiers,” he said, addressing his enemy. “Do not allow neo-Nazis and Banderites to use your children, your wives and the elderly as a human shield. Take power into your own hands.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky is calling upon European citizens with combat experience to travel to Ukraine and fight against Russia. Zelensky’s plea to Europeans came in a speech Friday: If you have a combat experience in Europe and do not want to look at the indecision of politicians, you can arrive in our state and protect Europe with us where it is now urgently required. You have already been blackmailed with gas. Already humiliated. They already want to split and divide you the same way as they are trying to divide Ukraine today. The request comes as Zelensky has provided his civilians and militia fighters with 18,000 submachine guns and ammunition to help

As RedState reported earlier on Friday, Vladimir Putin’s plan to overtake Ukraine is not going particularly well. The four-pronged attack has stretched supply lines thin and weakened Russia’s ability to strike the decisive blow it was looking for. Specifically, plans to take the capital city of Kyiv have fallen well short of expectations and the resistance there now represents a huge problem for Russian forces starting a bloody urban conflict in the face. Multiple airborne assaults meant to take the city have been rebuffed since the invasion began, and Ukraine has now struck a major blow on that front, downing an Il-76 transport plane. With a capacity

Things don’t seem to be going as smoothly for the Russian army as Putin had anticipated. This article in the London Times sums up the situation on the ground and is consistent with other accounts I have seen: Pentagon officials said that Russian forces had lost momentum and were not advancing as quickly as their intelligence estimates had predicted. “They are not moving on Kyiv as fast as they anticipated it going,” one said. Despite Russian forces assaulting air defence and missile systems, Ukraine’s air force was flying sorties. The country’s Ministry of Defence celebrated the reporting for duty of dozens of former pilots. There are lots of stories of Ukrainian heroism;

Moscow - Russia said on Friday it was partially limiting access to Meta Platforms Inc's (FB.O) Facebook, accusing it of "censoring" Russian media, the latest in a series of steps against U.S. social media giants. Moscow has been trying to exert tighter control over the internet and big tech for years, something critics say threatens individual and corporate freedom, and is part of a wider crackdown against outspoken opponents of the Kremlin. The state communications regulator said that Facebook had ignored its demands to lift restricts on four Russian media outlets on its platform - RIA news agency, the defence ministry's Zvezda TV and websites and

As intense fighting in Ukraine continues as a result of Russia’s invasion, a new report offers some shocking details about how inept Joe Biden’s strategy was in trying to prevent the current carnage. Per The New York Times, the Biden administration actually gave classified intelligence to the Chinese communists in an effort to gain their support against Vladimir Putin. Predictably, that completely backfired and only helped Russia in its march toward war. Over three months, senior Biden administration officials held half a dozen urgent meetings with top Chinese officials in which the Americans presented intelligence

Joe Biden is about as hideous a failure as any president has ever been in United States history.  He bests Jimmy Carter, he bests Barack Obama, he bests Warren Harding, he bests Franklin Pierce and James Buchanan for his sheer cowardice, corruption, inability to read the mood of the country, and senescence.  Every last thing he's done has been a failure, and some of them big failures indeed.  He's truly the worst president we have ever had, and that's becoming a bipartisan consensus. So how do Democrats deal with this?  According to the Washington Examiner: Attention to national news is on the decline overall, but for the first time in four years, Democrats are reporting less interest in it

With Russian forces having laid siege to Ukraine’s capital Kyiv, Ukrainians are now clinging on for dear life to every bit of ‘good news’ that they can find.

Videos of the ‘Ghost of Kyiv’ are now going viral on social media. Many are calling the pilot the “first European Ace since World War II”.

The Russian invasion of Ukraine isn’t going as easily as I think Vladimir Putin thought it would go. As we noted earlier, they are facing some tough fighting from the Ukrainians as well as thousands of protesters in Russia who have come out against the war. That’s quite something, given the oppressive state of Russia and how they would face immediate retribution. Yet, protesters have come out anyway. Ukraine fought back to recapture an airport the Russians had taken. So, Russia isn’t going to be able to do what they wanted because they haven’t met the goals they were trying to meet by now – which was to seize all

President Joe Biden will nominate federal Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson on Friday to replace Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer, which would make her the first black woman on the high court's bench should she be confirmed by the Senate. Breyer announced his retirement last month after 28 years on the Supreme Court, effective when the current term ends this summer. That paved the way for Biden to fulfill his 2020 campaign promise of nominating a black woman as a Supreme Court justice.

The Secret Service is telling Republican investigators that it cannot find communications related to Hunter Biden’s travels for 2010, 2011, or 2013 — when President Joe Biden was the vice president. Republican Sens. Chuck Grassley of Iowa and Ron Johnson of Wisconsin sent the Secret Service a letter last month seeking unredacted records tied to Hunter Biden’s travels between January 2009 and January 2017. They asked for full travel records and criticized the agency for years of “inappropriate redactions” — especially related to a controversial Kazakhstan trip in 2014. The senators also lamented that three years of documents seemed to be missing entirely.

In an ideal world, maybe we could ignore what's happening in Ukraine but we have to see the world as it is, not how we want it to be: Russia is calling and wants its Ukraine back. I generally appreciate Tucker Carlson, but every time he discusses Ukraine and Russia, I bristle — especially when he contends that America has no interest in Ukraine. I know some of you might agree with Carlson, but you can be a solid conservative who is just as war-weary as the next guy and still see a security interest in Ukraine without being a neocon.

Reporters were quick to take the president to task over what appeared to be a changing stance on whether sanctions, economic or otherwise, were effective in any way. 'No one expected the sanctions to prevent anything from happening,' Biden said in what was a complete reversal to what he had said previously.

Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin took to Twitter Friday to mock Pope Francis' attempt to halt the ongoing war between Russia and Ukraine. "[A]s empty gestures go, impressive," the left-wing columnist tweeted, responding to NBC News reporter Richard Engle confirming a report that the pope had made an effort to sue for peace directly with Russia. In an unprecedented gesture, Francis visited the Russian embassy in Rome earlier on Friday to express his concern over the war. According to the Associated Press, officials at the Vatican said they knew of no previous initiative by the pope to end a conflict in such a way.
