Biden’s Limited Accessibility to the Media Comes into Focus as Correspondents’ Dinner Nears

As President Biden prepares to take the stage at the White House Correspondents Dinner on Saturday, his limited accessibility to the media has come into focus.

In his first year, Biden held half as many news conferences as former President Trump, according to the American Presidency Project at the University of California. Trump also frequently spoke with the press impromptu before entering Marine One, something Biden does not do as often. Biden has held two solo news conferences so far this year, one in Washington and the other in Brussels.

Brian Stelter, host of CNN’s “Reliable Sources,” interviewed Steven Portnoy, president of the White House Correspondents Association, about this year’s White House Correspondents Dinner and mentioned that Biden isn’t always as accessible to the press compared to his predecessor.

“The mission of the association continues to be to advocate for reporters to be able to have those interactions with the president on behalf of the public, readers, viewers, listeners,” said Portnoy, who leads the organization hosting the event.

Portnoy also said his remarks at the dinner will be “deadly serious,” given the number of journalists killed while covering the war in Ukraine.

Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky and Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba have said they would like to see Biden come to Ukraine to see the dire situation up close. Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin and Secretary of State Anthony Blinken visited Ukraine and met Zelensky over the weekend. Biden hasn’t announced plans to meet in-person with Zelensky.

Amid the calls for Biden to visit Ukraine during the Russian invasion, the president recently announced that he is participating in the White House Correspondents Dinner after 4 years of former President Donald Trump skipping the gathering.

Biden is set to deliver a comedy routine rather than a formal speech, similar to the performances of past presidents at the infamous dinner. Trevor Noah, host of The Daily Show, is the dinner’s featured entertainer. 

The main purpose of the gathering is to award scholarships to aspiring journalists and recognize the achievements of the working press covering the White House. Networks reserve tables for the dinner and often invite celebrities as guests. For example, reality TV star Kim Kardashian and her boyfriend, comedian Pete Davidson of Saturday Night Live, are expected to attend this year’s dinner.

The event is estimated to draw about 2,600 people. The most recent comparable large-scale high-profile gathering in Washington was the Gridiron Dinner, which led to over 70 COVID positive cases, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Attorney General Merrick Garland.

Former Surgeon General Jerome Adams encouraged the Washington establishment to learn from the results of the “superspreader” Gridiron Dinner, arguing that “mass gatherings that lead to mass infections cannot become our ‘new normal.'”

COVID cases are rising in the Washington Metropolitan area driven by the spread of the BA.2 variant.

Organizers of the Correspondents’ Dinner are requiring a same-day negative COVID test to attend, according to Portnoy. Currently, Biden and other cabinet officials are often seen wearing masks even though indoor mask mandates have been lifted in the Washington D.C. area. The White House Correspondents Association hasn’t said if they are going to require dinner attendees to wear masks indoors at the event.

Biden’s Harsh Dismissal of Kamala During Negotiations Left GOP Senators ‘Taken Aback’: New Book

Martin Walsh
April 27, 2022

There’s apparently major tension between President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris in the White House that has not settled down.

New York Times reporters Jonathan Martin and Alexander Burns detail in their upcoming book, “This Will Not Pass: Trump, Biden, and the Battle for America’s Future” a slew of tense moments and exchanges between Harris and Biden.

In one instance, the book alleges that Biden left Republican senators stunned during legislative negotiations last year when he strongly shut down Harris in front of everyone.

In a meeting last May, Biden and Harris met with senators to discuss passing a $1 trillion infrastructure bill through Congress when Harris reportedly “thought that there was something missing from the conversation.”

The book alleges that Harris “began to make the case for a larger package than the one Republicans seemed to have in mind,” which included adding more Democratic goodies.

“Biden dismissed her comment immediately,” the authors explain, adding, “that even the Republican senators were taken aback” by his harsh tone.

In another meeting, the NYT authors quote Maryland GOP Gov. Larry Hogan, who recounted a meeting between Biden, Harris, and a handful of governors.

Hogan recalled Harris’s role in meetings as “very strange,” saying she sat quietly and it was noticeable.

“Harris did not say a word,” Hogan said, adding that he didn’t know if Harris was “just being deferential to the president — didn’t want to step on him” or there was something else going on.

“Some of Harris’s advisers believed the president’s almost entirely white inner circle did not show the vice president the respect she deserved,” Martin and Burns wrote in excerpts.

“Harris worried that Biden’s staff looked down on her; she fixated on real and perceived snubs in ways the West Wing found tedious,” the authors add of Harris who has yet to improve her dismal approval ratings.

In another section, the authors detail how First Lady Jill Biden apparently did not want Harris to be her husband’s pick for vice president and he had reservations of his own.

“There are millions of people in the United States. Why do we have to choose the one who attacked Joe,” Jill Biden said in a conversation after she discovered that Harris was in the lead for the job.

In another example of the Biden-Harris feud in the West Wing, the book claims Biden threatened to dismiss any staffers for Harris if they were discovered spreading negative stories about her leadership and personality.

Biden reportedly made the threat amid a flurry of news stories documenting rising frustration and dissatisfaction with the VP among the ranks of her staff, many of whom have already quit in the year she’s been in office.

Biden was angry following negative reports last June claiming dissatisfaction among Harris’ staff.

In response, Biden brought in senior staff to the Oval Office and told them that if “he found that any of them was stirring up negative stories about the vice president…they would quickly be former staff,” according to an excerpt of the book reported by Politico.

Many of the reports contained specific complaints from unnamed staffers.

In early December, the Washington Post published a lengthy report and quoted several current and former staffers who were frustrated with her.

“It’s clear that you’re not working with somebody who is willing to do the prep and the work,” a former staffer said. “With Kamala, you have to put up with a constant amount of soul-destroying criticism and also her own lack of confidence. So you constantly sort of propping up a bully and it’s not really clear why.”

Here are some other headlines from the book:

Saudi Ruler Screamed at Top Biden Official, Told Him to ‘Forget About’ Boosted Oil Production: Report

Abby Liebing April 20, 2022

In another foreign policy faux pas, the Biden administration has angered Saudi Arabia and damaged the U.S. relationship with the powerful oil-rich Arab kingdom.

While damaging foreign relationships is never a good idea, alienating and angering the Saudis at this particular moment is dangerous and costly to Americans, as the Ukraine-Russia war continues and the global oil market is in chaos, the Wall Street Journal reported.

Before even becoming president, Joe Biden set himself in opposition to Saudi Arabia, continually condemning the kingdom for the death of the Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi in 2018. (Khashoggi was a Saudi Arabian journalist who left the country as a dissident, but in 2018 was assassinated in the Saudi consulate at Istanbul, allegedly at the direction of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, the de facto ruler of Saudi Arabia.)

In 2019, Biden said that the kingdom should be treated as a pariah due to human-rights issues like Khashoggi’s death.

Then, in the summer of 2021, Biden told Americans to blame low Saudi oil output for rising gas prices.

Relations remained cold between the crown prince and Biden, who, since becoming president, has not deigned to meet with the Saudi ruler.

But last fall, Biden sent his national security advisor Jake Sullivan to talk with bin Salman about oil production and supply, hoping to strike a deal to increase oil production and combat the rising prices of gas and oil.

However, after bringing up the death of Khashoggi once again, the meeting ended with the prince shouting at Sullivan and telling him the U.S. could forget about any request to boost oil production, according to The Journal.

Fast-forward to the current circumstance, with Russia’s war on Ukraine continuing and deeply hurting the global oil economy. The U.S. finds itself in an awkward and weak position, as Saudi Arabia has aligned itself with Russian interests, the Wall Street Journal reported.

Once the Russia-Ukraine war began, the Biden administration began eyeing Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, hoping to convince them to ramp up oil production, which would undercut the money Russiamakes off of its own oil exports and also drive down the rising prices of oil and gas, CNN reported.

Saudi Arabia and the UAE are the most powerful members of OPEC, the bloc of 13 countries that together control 40 percent of global oil production, making them crucial in the global oil game.

Saudi Arabia did not do as Biden requested and has promoted its own interests above the West’s, which could be dangerous for the U.S. and also keeps gas prices high for Americans.

“The risk for the U.S. is that Riyadh will align more closely with China and Russia, or at least remain neutral on issues of vital interest to Washington, as it has on Ukraine, Saudi officials said,” the Wall Street Journal reported.

Bin Salman has made it clear that the devolving relationship with the administration means that he will not be devoted to helping the U.S.

The prince told The Atlantic that he does value the relationship with the U.S. and he is “trying to do my best.”

“If his best is not good enough for Joe Biden, [bin Salman] said, then the consequences of running a moralistic foreign policy would be the president’s to discover,” The Atlantic reported.

Bin Salman also said that if the Biden administration misunderstands him, “Simply, I do not care.”

“It’s up to him to think about the interests of America,” the prince added.

The Biden administration has since stopped asking the Saudis to pump more oil, a senior official told the Wall Street Journal. Instead, Biden now asks only that Saudi Arabia not do anything that would hurt the West’s efforts in Ukraine.

Jen Psaki Will Reportedly Trade White House Podium for MSNBC Gig

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki will reportedly depart her official administration job this spring and join MSNBC, according to a report from Axios.

Psaki has been rumored to be in discussions with corporate media outlets for months. Her White House departure is also no surprise; the mother of two always expressed a desire to stick with her current role for about a year before pursuing other options.

Axios reports that Psaki has been in close contact with the White House counsel’s office about her imminent departure and has not signed any contracts that would put her in messy ethics territory. Though, sources say that Psaki has shared her plans to join MSNBC with some senior White House officials – the deal is reportedly close to being finalized.

The plan, according to the outlet, is for Psaki to host a show for MSNC on NBUniversal’s streaming service, Peacock. She will also contribute as a voice on MSNBC’s cable lineup of network shows. 

Zelensky’s Ex-Press Sec Blasts Harris: ‘Would Be A Tragedy If This Woman Won The Presidency’

Martin Walsh
March 11, 2022

The former press secretary to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy is not a fan of Vice President Kamala Harris.

In a tweet that has since been deleted, Iuliia Mendel wrote on Twitter that it would be a “tragedy” if Harris ever became president.

“It would be a tragedy if this woman won the presidency,” Mendel wrote on Twitter following Harris’ Thursday press conference alongside Polish President Andrzej Duda addressing the ongoing Russian invasion of Ukraine.

Below is a screenshot of Mendel’s now-deleted tweet:

Mendel’s tweet was directed at a video posted by another user showing Harris awkwardly laughing following a question from a reporter about Ukrainian refugees.

Harris oddly laughed when she asked if the United States planned on making space for Ukrainian refugees as she met with foreign leaders in Poland to discuss the ongoing Russian invasion.

Both Harris and Poland’s President Andrzej Duda were asked about whether the U.S. would be accepting a greater number of Ukrainian refugees, with the VP giggling awkwardly before Duda actually took the time to answer what was a serious question, given that many of the 2 million Ukrainians who have fled the fighting are currently in his country.

“A friend in need is a friend indeed,” Harris said with a smile before a more somber Duda said he had asked the U.S. vice president to help speed up the process for Ukrainian refugees with family in the U.S. to be able to head to America.

“We are looking for international support because indeed the vast majority of Ukrainian refugees are coming to our country,” Duda said, though Harris did not commit the U.S. to take in a certain number of Ukrainians trying to escape the war.

That said, Harris did note that Ukrainians who are currently in the United States and may have visas that are set to expire soon could remain in America for the time being.

“We will not send them back tow hat is a war zone,” she said.

She also committed the Biden administration to assist Poland.

“As we have said many times through our work collectively in the UN through NATO, we will support Poland in terms of the burden it is facing and our collective responsibility to ensure the safety and well-being of these refugees,” Harris said.

Many on social media slammed Harris over her response:

The White House explained the purpose of Harris’ trip in a statement.

“During her trip to Warsaw, Poland, today, U.S. Vice President Kamala Harris announced nearly $53 million in new humanitarian assistance from the United States government, through the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), to support innocent civilians affected by Russia’s unjustified invasion of Ukraine,” the statement said.

“This additional assistance includes support to the UN World Food Program (WFP) to provide lifesaving emergency food assistance to meet immediate needs of hundreds of thousands affected by the invasion, including people who are displaced from their homes and who are crossing the border out of Ukraine. In addition, it will support WFP’s logistics operations to move assistance into Ukraine, including to people in Kyiv,” the White House added.

“The United States is the largest provider of humanitarian assistance to Ukraine and has provided $159 million in overall humanitarian assistance to Ukraine since October 2020, including nearly $107 million in the past two weeks in response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. This includes food, safe drinking water, shelter, emergency health care, and winterization services to communities affected by ongoing fighting,” the statement continued.

“To date, two million people have been forced to flee Ukraine due to the conflict, and an estimated one million are displaced inside Ukraine. At least 12 million people are in need of humanitarian aid across Ukraine. The United States continues to stand with the people of Ukraine and will continue to work to meet immediate needs and save lives,” the White House noted further.

FOIA Request Reveals Biden Admin Paid $1 Billion to Corporate Media Outlets to Push Covid Vaccines

By Matt Agorist

Since the COVID-19 pandemic began in 2020, the US government has poured billions of your tax dollars into the vaccine program. More than $9 billion of your tax dollars were given to vaccine companies for research and over $22 billion of your tax dollars were then used to support vaccine distribution. The feds also shelled out another $10 billion to expand access and $3 billion more to spend on an ad campaign to combat vaccine hesitancy.

The government was originally transparent with their advertising campaign, rubbing it in the faces of taxpayers that their money was going to paying for commercials for billion dollar companies. However, according to documents obtained under a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request, we are now learning that this campaign was far more insidious than just commercials.

According to FOIA documents obtained by The Blaze, the current administration paid the whole of corporate media, including the so-called “conservative” outlets, a billion of your tax dollars to carry out a massive campaign to push positive information about the COVID-19 vaccines. This was done through ads, but the same companies also produced positive news reports on the jabs as well.

The propaganda was carried out as part of the “COVID-19 Public Education Campaign,” a “national initiative to increase public confidence in and uptake of COVID-19 vaccines,” was created with the goal of having “trusted messengers and influencers” speak to news organizations to “provide factual, timely information and steps people can take to protect themselves, their families, and their communities.”

In response to a FOIA request by The Blaze media outlet, the Department of Health and Human Services admitted that it spend hundreds of millions of dollars on the purchasing of “advertising from major news networks including ABC, CBS, and NBC, as well as cable TV news stations Fox News, CNN, and MSNBC, legacy media publications including the New York Post, the Los Angeles Times, and the Washington Post, digital media companies like BuzzFeed News and Newsmax, and hundreds of local newspapers and TV stations. These outlets were collectively responsible for publishing countless articles and video segments regarding the vaccine that were nearly uniformly positive about the vaccine in terms of both its efficacy and safety.”

The breach of journalistic integrity in this scheme cannot be overstated. While the average American thought they were consuming “unbiased” media reports, they were actually part of a paid propaganda campaign to convince them to take the vaccine.

As The Blaze points out, “though virtually all of these newsrooms produced stories covering the COVID-19 vaccines, the taxpayer dollars flowing to their companies were not disclosed to audiences in news reports, since common practice dictates that editorial teams operate independently of media advertising departments and news teams felt no need to make the disclosure, as some publications reached for comment explained.”

“Advertisers pay for space to share their messages, as was the case here, and those ads are clearly labeled as such,” explained Shani George, vice president of communications for the Washington Post, in a statement. “The newsroom is completely independent from the advertising department,” she said.

A spokeswoman for the Los Angeles Times gave a similar statement, emphasizing that the “newsroom operates independently from advertising.”

However, that was clearly not the case.

Emerald Robinson, an independent journalist who previously served as the chief White House correspondent for Newsmax (2020-2022) and for One America News (2017-2020), said she was contacted by a whistleblower inside Newsmax who confirmed that Newsmax executives agreed to take the money from Biden’s HHS to push only positive coverage of the new COVID shots.

This was evidenced by the CEO of Newsmax, Chris Ruddy writing an op-ed “applauding Biden for his vaccine efforts.”

“At Newsmax, we have strongly advocated for the public to be vaccinated. The many medical experts who have appeared on our network have been near unanimous in support of the vaccine. I myself have gotten the Pfizer vaccine. There’s no question in my mind, countless lives would have been saved if the vaccine was available earlier,” Ruddy wrote.

We have since learned that the jabs are not nearly as “safe and effective” as these media outlets have claimed. Yet mainstream shills came out swinging saying it was.

In the video below, from last year, media blowhard and known liar Rachel Maddox claimed — with no scientific data to back her up — that the vaccine will keep you safe from getting covid.

“Now we know that the vaccines work well enough that the virus stops with every vaccinated person… A vaccinated person gets infected with the virus….the virus does not infect them…the virus then cannot….use a vaccinated person as a host to get more people.”

It wasn’t just Maddow either. As these FOIA documents illustrate, every single major outlet took money to propagandize citizens. Given the recent release of Pfizer’s covid vaccine data from the FDA, this move by the government was nothing short of insidious.

In a 55,000-page set of documents released last week, the FDA’s Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research allowed the public to access data for the first time that Pfizer submitted to the FDA from its clinical trials in support of a COVID-19 “vaccine” license. Hidden in one appendix is a 38-page report of clinical data for Pfizer’s “vaccine” which lists a massive array of 1,291 alleged adverse side effects from the shot.

The chairman of the Liberty Council, which has been active in fighting mandatory vaccinations, Mat Staver, reported,

“People have been injured and died as a result of the most extensive propaganda campaign in U.S. history and it was paid for with our taxpayer dollars. These COVID shots are neither safe nor effective. However, the American public has been given propaganda instead of truth from the news media. Sadly, most of the American corporate media has been paid off by the Biden administration to publish propaganda. The consequence is that many people have needlessly suffered as a result of the censorship and propaganda.”

BREAKING: Biden to Sign Exec Order to Regulate Cryptocurrency

Amber Crawford
March 7th, 2022

Biden will reportedly be signing an executive order later this week which will outline the government’s strategy for cryptocurrencies, marking the first step towards the regulation of digital currency. This initiative, which has been in the works since last year, has been expedited in order to ensure Russia doesn’t try to use crypto to circumvent sanctions levied by the U.S. and its allies.

Detailed information on this order has not been released yet, but is anticipated to inform government agencies on what steps they must take to develop regulations on digital currencies.  Federal agencies will also be required to report what they’re doing in terms of digital tokens later this year.

Bloomberg reports that the order “will direct federal agencies to examine potential regulatory changes, as well as the national security and economic impact of digital assets.”

Additionally, according to Decrypt,

“The executive order will reportedly help coordinate the role of agencies such as the Securities and Exchange Commission and Commodity Futures Trading Commission on cryptocurrency. Industry actors have long complained that guidance from the SEC and other agencies has been unhelpful as they seek to be compliant with U.S. law.”

Russia’s use of digital currency has raised significant concern that the country will use it to evade the recent sanctions which have crippled the ruble and closed the country’s stock market.

Last week, Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen discussed the possibility of cryptocurrency providing Russia a way of circumventing the sanctions placed on them. “We will continue to look at how the sanctions work and evaluate whether or not there are liquid leakages and we have the possibility to address them,” said Yellen. “I often hear cryptocurrency mentioned and that is a channel to be watched.”

In the past, action evasion via cryptocurrency has been experienced with Iran and Venezuela, which have helped inform the government’s efforts in this initiative.

The Acting Director of the Treasury’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN), Him Das, issued a statement saying, “Although we have not seen widespread evasion of our sanctions using methods such as cryptocurrency, prompt reporting of suspicious activity contributes to our national security and our efforts to support Ukraine and its people.”

FinCEN issued an alert on Monday to financial institutions, advising them to be “vigilant against potential efforts to evade the expansive sanctions and other U.S.-imposed restrictions implemented in connection with the Russian Federation’s further invasion of Ukraine.”

AND THERE IT IS: Biden Asks for Billions for COVID and Ukraine – Where Will This Money Really Go?

Joe Hoft
March 5th, 2022

Biden now wants billions more for Ukraine and COVID.  He must think we forgot about one of his last transactions in Ukraine.

In 2015,  Ukrainian prosecutor Victor Shokin was looking into Burisma, an oil and gas company where Hunter Biden was on the Board.  Joe Biden later bragged how he got Shokin stopped from further investigating Hunter and Burisma.  Biden withheld a billion in aid to get Shokin fired and he bragged about it.

Now Biden wants more.  This time Biden says it’s for COVID and Ukraine. FOX News reports:

The White House is warning that the U.S. will soon begin to run out of money for COVID-19 supplies unless Congress acts to approve more funding.

Officials say more money is needed for antibody treatments, preventative pills and to fund testing sites.

“From the COVID side, the bank account is empty,” COVID-19 deputy coordinator Natalie Quillian said. “We’re in conversations with lawmakers about how to secure the funding, but it’s urgently needed.” Some of the consequences could be felt later this month.

“This is an urgent request and this is what is at stake in our fight against COVID,” White House press secretary Jen Psaki told reporters on Friday.

request sent to Congress from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) seeks $22.5 billion in immediate COVID-19 response needs with an ask for $10 billion to provide support to Ukraine following Russia’s invasion.

Giving Biden one tax dollar for him to give to Ukraine is not a good idea.  It’s a bad idea, a very bad idea.

As Putin Invades Ukraine, Biden Bumbles Around on Live TV and Says ‘See, Presidents Can’t Do Much’

Isa Cox, The Western Journal
February 26, 2022

As Russian President Vladimir Putin continues to thumb his nose at the global community with his ongoing invasion of Ukraine, American President Joe Biden is reminding the world exactly why Putin felt like he could get away with it.

On Friday, President Biden held a press conference to show off his pick to replace retiring Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer, because the day that war was breaking out in Eastern Europe and one of our allies was passing out rifles to citizens to defend their nation was totally an appropriate day to do so, naturally.

Not content with this utterly appalling timing, Biden also used the opportunity to put on full display not only his intersectionally-accredited black female nominee but also his own utter incompetence.

While introducing his SCOTUS pick, Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, during a news conference on Friday to mark the occasion of her nomination, the president, for some unknown reason, announced he would adjust the podium to better suit her relatively slighter figure.

This is, of course, typically the job of an underling, and it was ultimately an underling who scurried onto the stage to lend a helping hand as Biden struggled to work the podium.

Biden’s response to this gaffe, as captured on audio for the whole world to see?

“See, presidents can’t do much!” he quipped.

Now, before you think I’m being too hard on the old guy, bear in mind that this is not a fluke. This is absolutely normal behavior for the septuagenarian president and serves to embarrassingly underscore one rather noteworthy aspect of why Putin has not responded to his administration’s threats.

In addition to the woke-ified military that’s more interested in preferred pronouns than combat preparedness, Biden’s utter, deadly disaster in Afghanistan last summer and his weak threats of sanctions against Putin’s advances on Ukraine, Biden has been putting on whatever the exact opposite of a strong front is all week.

On Tuesday, Biden gave what was clearly supposed to be some very stern remarks denouncing Putin for his aggressions in Ukraine. Unfortunately, his handlers had clearly neglected to put him down for his afternoon nap beforehand:

On Thursday, Biden further demonstrated an utter lack of resolve by telling reporters he had no idea if Putin was going to nuke the U.S. and didn’t feel like addressing the critical question on China’s potential involvement in the escalating conflict.

Kamala Harris Looks Totally Out of Place at Munich Meetings – Ukrainian President Zelensky Calls Out Joe Biden, “Someone Is Lying!” (VDEO)

Joe Hoft
February 20th, 2022

Kamala Harris was totally out of place today on the world stage.  Everyone knows it.  The Conservative Treehouse reported:

The fiasco of U.S manipulation in Ukraine continues as the Biden administration dispatch Kamala Harris to play the role of a grown-up at the Munich conference.  She failed…

…The baseline remains the same, and at the end of the meeting between Harris and Zelenskyy, the Ukrainian president delivered remarks to call the bluff of Joe Biden (video also below).  The words “someone is lying” lead off his speech.

President Zelenskyy emphasized the geopolitical farce when he said to the world if the United States, and as an extension NATO, is so certain that Russia is about to invade and destroy Ukraine sovereignty, then why are they waiting to trigger deterrent sanctions?

Underneath the true answer to that question is the crux of the issue.  All of these events within Ukraine are being manipulated by the U.S. State Department and the U.S. intelligence apparatus, just as the events of 2014 in Ukraine were done before.

The article goes on to point out Harris’s performance today:

President Zelenskyy has to pretend the words from Harris are accurate, while simultaneously knowing she is a totally clueless pawn, a tool of the people behind Biden who sent her specifically in an effort to improve the way she is viewed by U.S. voters.   The team behind Biden are trying to rebrand Kamala Harris as a serious person, but her stupidity is so evident we cannot hear a word she is saying.

Here is Zelensky’s speech, with his comment on “someone is lying” at the very beginning.

Zelensky: ” Europe is longing for peace.  The world is saying it doesn’t want any war.  While Russia is saying she doesn’t want to intervene.  Someone here is lying.”
