Biden Slips: Calls Openly for Removal of Putin

This weekend in Poland, Biden said Putin cannot remain in power.

By Ray McGovern /

Feeling his oats after effusive adulation from leaders of NATO – and Japan at the G-7 summit – Biden gave us the Mother of All Faux Pax this afternoon in Poland.

Echoing imperious King Henry II of England, Biden uttered the equivalent of “Will no one rid me of this troublesome priest” … or troublesome president? The priest, of course, was Thomas Becket, Archbishop of Canterbury. The president is Vladimir Putin, who had already warned a complete break in Russia-U.S. relations.

Referring in all but name to President Putin, Biden said, “This man cannot remain in power.” Reminder that should not be necessary: Prudent presidents have been reluctant to say that of the leader of other countries – sometimes even when the two are at war. Nor do I need to point out the inevitable hurdle to the cooperation necessary to negotiate a halt to invasions and introduce a ceasefire. Is it all the same to Biden that the carnage continue, with rhetorical promises of support, weapons that are blown up as soon as they cross the border into Ukraine, and crocodile tears.

This will not end well. Among other things, it amounts to public confirmation, at the chief-of-state level, no less, that U.S. involvement in Ukraine (particularly since the U.S.-arranged coup d’etat on Feb. 22, 2014) has been “regime change” in Russia.

That coup has been accurately labeled “the most blatant coup in history”. The main orchestrator, caught on tape arranging for a new Ukrainian prime minister, was Victoria Nuland – now number three at the State Department telling her nominal boss Tony Blinken what to say and do on Ukraine.) See Putin’s Invasion of Ukraine Salon.

Coup No Surprise: Neither Was Russia’s Reaction

After Nuland openly bragged in Dec. 2013 of the US having invested $5 Billion in Ukraine’s aspirations to join the West, and then orchestrated the coup two months later, one agency of the US intelligence community, the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) got it right, presaging what slipped out of Biden’s lips earlier today. In an annual “National Security Strategy” report mandated by Congress, DIA Director LT Gen. Vincent Stewart on Dec. 2015 signed off on the following text:

The Kremlin is convinced the United States is laying the groundwork for regime change in Russia, a conviction further reinforced by the events in Ukraine. Moscow views the United States as the critical driver behind the crisis in Ukraine and believes that the overthrow of former Ukrainian President Yanukovych is the latest move in a long-established pattern of U.S.-orchestrated regime change efforts.

For some reason, the mainstream media gave no play to that key finding. Let’s see how they play Biden’s confirmation of it.

  1. If you want to know the truth, pay attention to the “gaffes” and what they say when they think the mic is turned off ,,,

  2. The corporate US newsmedia is totally complicit on both sides of the aisle (GOP or DNC) with the deep state propaganda even interviewing known Nazis from Ukraine without any mention of what they represent.

    1. @Barbara Mullin
      The U.S. has no problem with Nazis, never had. Henry Ford supported them, 8 U.S. companies including Ford, Coca Cola, Chase, Kodak, IBM, and General Electric had plants in Nazi Germany, and the U.S. accepted Nazis into its intelligence agencies after WWII.

      BTW, the U.S. also supported al Qaeda and al Nusra in Syria.

      This country will support any level of evil in order to get what it wants for its ruling elite.

  3. In addition to the obvious assistance this gives to Putin’s ability to persuade his domestic audience , unless Biden has a plan and a substitute ready (unlikely, even the CIA can’t pull THAT off) — what makes him sure his successor won’t be even worse? Maybe smarter?

She told me that life here had reminded her of a runaway hay wagon on fire rolling into a small village. Instead of fleeing or trying to put the flames out, the American people argue about who’s at fault for starting the fire while the village burns.

    A day after I heard that sage observation I was in Poland, where President Biden was speaking. He made a comment about Putin that was nothing more than a heartfelt observation following a prolonged meeting with Ukrainian refugees. “For God’s sake, this man can’t remain in power,” he said. The world cheered and Biden’s over-protective staff cringed, trying to walk back or clarify the statement less than an hour later. Then the president came forward the following day to clarify the clarification, standing by what he said in the first place and further explaining it.

    That’s where Putin and his demonic endeavors thrive — in the middle of horror, strife and war. As it turns out, he lit the wagon on fire and pushed it into the village. He and others like him, including the traitorous Trump and all his minions, have purposely misled the rest of us so they can loot the village as it burns. Of course it’s possible Trump is merely the village idiot con-man.

    Michael Cohen, Trump’s former fixer and now one of his greatest critics, told me something recently that puts all this into perspective. He said he had told an acquaintance who still loves Trump that he only feels that way because he’s still making money off Trump. The man nodded in the affirmative and Cohen said, “You’re willing to sell democracy for a dollar? When democracy is gone, do you think you get to keep the dollar?”

    Trump doesn’t care about you. Putin doesn’t care either. These are the people who want to watch it burn. They don’t care about the village. They don’t care about the villagers. They only care about themselves.”

    “a comment about Putin that was nothing more than a heartfelt observation following a prolonged meeting with Ukrainian refugees”
