Biden Fails to Lead as Russia Puts Him to The Test

As Russia beats the drums of war, American leadership has once again been put to the test. And we’re failing.

Although 8,500 U.S. troops are now on alert to deploy at short notice, more than 100,000 Russian soldiers have already been deployed on Ukraine’s border. President Joe Biden’s State Department recently ordered the departure of embassy staff family members from Ukraine, acknowledging the very real threat of invasion — or, if you will, a “minor incursion.”

Ukraine may be the latest flashpoint in geopolitical posturing, but the issue at hand really isn’t about Ukraine. It’s about Poland in 1939. It’s about appeasing military powers that need not be appeased. It’s about Taiwan, whose people contend with Chinese aggression on a daily basis. It’s about the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) flying dozens of warplanes  toward Taiwan in a blatant show of force.

It’s about every commitment that America has ever made to people facing oppression and fearing war. It’s about leadership: How do we, as a nation, respond to provocation?

This appears to be about 12 russians to 1 American. Is our soldiers and equipment that much better than the russians. I am sure that our millitary, so called, leaders are not that qualified to challenge those odds. It appears what our leaders are only interested in is appeasement of queers, transgenders or any other UN-AMERICAN group you can name.
The Constitution says the purpose of our government is to protect the Citizens, Country, and Sovereignty of the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. bidens regime is failing on all accounts.

The president is incapable of leading because he’s a marionette. Being president is an incidental characteristic of his position. Outsiders are incapable of discovering and stopping the marionettists. If the people don’t force legal, informed and fair elections, our nation will be lost to the charlatans, shysters and flimflam artists.
