Biden Vows to Confront Russia, Enemy of Democracy, and China, Enemy of ‘Global Governance’

In first foreign policy speech of his presidency Biden vows to lead an international LGBTQI and climate change crusade

In his first major foreign policy address, President Joe Biden vowed to confront the enemies of ‘democracy’ globally, while seeking to reclaim America’s ‘moral credibility’ and leadership in LGBT and climate change issues.

Speaking at the State Department headquarters in the nation’s capital on Thursday, Biden outlined his foreign policy vision in a 20-minute address, laying out a sprawling list of priorities for his administration, among them countering supposed US “adversaries.”

“American leadership must meet this new moment of advancing authoritarianism, including the growing ambitions of China to rival the United States and the determination of Russia to damage and disrupt our democracy,” Biden said early in his remarks.

The days of the United States rolling over in the face of Russia’s aggressive actions – interfering with our elections, cyberattacks, poisoning its citizens – are over… We will not hesitate to raise the cost on Russia and defend our vital interests and our people.

He added, however, that Washington must also engage with its “competitors” diplomatically, pointing to an agreement between the US and Russia to extend the New START arms control pact by five years, which he dubbed the “only remaining treaty between our countries safeguarding nuclear stability.”

While the president noted the US is “ready to work with Beijing,” he quickly turned to a litany of allegations against the country. Biden accused China of waging an “attack on human rights, intellectual property, and global governance,” as well as “economic abuses” – somewhat mirroring rhetoric from his predecessor, former president Donald Trump.

Announcing the need for a “course correct” for US foreign policy, Biden said he had ordered a “global posture review” of the American military footprint to ensure it is “appropriately aligned” with his national security goals, adding that during the review, a troop withdrawal from Germany previously ordered by Trump would be frozen.

As part of the same shift in policy overseas, the president pledged to step up diplomacy to “end the war in Yemen,” calling it a “humanitarian and strategic catastrophe,” though declined to acknowledge it was his own former boss, ex-president Barack Obama, who first supported Saudi Arabia’s bloody bombing campaign in the country.

Nonetheless, he said Washington would halt any “relevant arms sales” to Riyadh, but would still support the kingdom in its fight against “Iranian-supplied groups.” It is unclear, however, how US policy would change, given that Saudi Arabia labels Yemen’s Houthi rebels as an Iran-backed faction.

Biden struck a Wilsonian tone throughout the address, vowing to “unite the world in fighting to defend democracy,” as well as to restore US “leadership” in areas ranging from climate change, “LGBTQI issues,” the fight against Covid-19 and protecting refugees and asylum-seekers worldwide.

Mainstream media appeared smitten by the speech. The New York Times described the address as a “sweeping vision of restored American global leadership.”

While corporate media rejoiced, many took to social media to air their anger over Biden’s policy pivot. The new administration is “bending over for the world and putting American people last is back,” wrote one frustrated commenter.

Another observer said that Biden was vowing to “stand up” to Russia while “bowing” to China.

Threats to China are distraction from his corruption.
The Russia hate is another manifestation of Jewish control of America. The Jews HATE Putin & Russia because Putin stopped their looting of Russian assets under the drunk Yeltsin. 
Just as they did during the Wiemar hyper inflation in Germany the Jews had money shipped in from overseas and were buying up assets at pennies on the dollar. 
That led to huge resentment of Jews in Germany and again in Russia.  
From Netanyahu’s infamous “Fink’s Bar diatribe” of 1990
“If we get caught they will just replace us with persons of the same cloth. So it does not matter what you do, America is a golden calf and we will suck it dry, chop it up, and sell it off piece by piece until there is nothing left but the world’s biggest welfare state that we will create and control. Why? Because it is the will of God and America is big enough to take the hit so we can do it again and again and again. This is what we do to countries that we hate. We destroy them very slowly and make them suffer for refusing to be our slaves.”

Wilson,,, another lying piece of crap war monger that stole America’s money via the Federal Reserve, robbing Americans with the 16th amendment, destroyed the republic with the 17th amendment and sending Americans to die in yet another Europeon war. His entire platform was based on BS,,, BUT at least he won the election squarely,,, more than one can say for this thought challenged basement dweller.

An embarrassment to his generation that valiantly died in a war against the fascism that he and his merry band of pervs now bring to America declaring half the nation as terrorists that need re-educated for having the temerity to vote their minds.

Obviously a marionette of the Military Intelligence complex the American people will have to swallow the malarkey of yet another politician hell bent on their destruction.

Back to the cold war from whence Joe Biden came. Only now we get two with both Russia and China in the fray!

The only aggression I’ve seen from Russia is where they are trying to limit US expansion such as in Georgia (when they tried to take Ossetia) and Syria where the US created ISIS in an attempt to bring Syria into the US sphere of influence. I think Russia just got tired of the US picking off its neighbors. But of course preventing US imperial ambitions is not acceptable, so the President that stole an election will lecture them on democracy. The party that claims to be liberal is in fact the most warlike.

America is nothing more than a pitiful terrorist country. They are not the good guys! They are the ones bombing others, occupying countries, killing people, behind many coups, selling weapons to terrorists, and even going to the point of weaponizing sanctions for their own greed. Yet, they have the balls to call others, terrorists.

““American leadership must meet this new moment of advancing authoritarianism, including the growing ambitions of China to rival the United States and the determination of Russia to damage and disrupt our democracy” … That is impressive bull particularly based on my first paragraph.

“Biden struck a Wilsonian tone throughout the address, vowing to “unite the world in fighting to defend democracy,” as well as to restore US “leadership” … Even if it means killing millions more of innocent people. USA’s democracy one bomb at the time!

I was watching Biden’s eyes when he was delivering this speech, and it was obvious that the lights were on, but there was no one home. I don’t know how long Old Slow Joe is going to last, but I don’t think he’ll make a year. Harris isn’t capable of running much, other than her mouth, so most likely the de facto POTUS is going to be Susan Rice; either Rice of some sort of council. It’s already becoming apparent that the electorate will swing Republican after the mid-terms so the Masters of the Universe will need to start their global war for freedom, and democracy within that time. I don’t think this is going to end well.

Pahaha! Biden is hilarious. Maybe he’s feeling brave cos he’s got his diapers on to prevent any accidents in public. I can’t see the LGBT++ brigade going over the top to fight the Russians or the Chinese. America is becoming funnier by the day. Behind the scenes the US is trying to negotiate on nordstream2 and Borell is in Moscow on behalf of van der loyen begging for 300 million doses of Sputnik. I can hear Sergei muttering under his breath “f***ing morons”

Democracy turned by zionists into Demon-rats-CIA, where the Deep State demons put rats like Biden-Harris into the vagina Oval Office, to be run by CIA from Beijing…
