President Joe Biden discussed his two-hour virtual summit with Vladimir Putin with reporters at the White House Wednesday; saying he pressured the Russian Leader with “economic consequences” should he invade the Ukraine.
“I was very straightforward. There were no minced words. It was polite, but I made it very clear. If in fact, [Putin] invades Ukraine, there will be severe consequences, economic consequences like none he’s ever seen or ever have been seen,” said Biden.
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki made similar statements earlier this week.
“Should Americans be prepared for the likelihood to see American forces on the ground in the region in the event that Russia does invade?” asked one journalist.
“Diplomacy is the right path forward here,” fired-back the Press Secretary.

AIR BIDEN? Secret Service Reportedly Provided Security for Hunter Biden on 400+ Trips
An explosive report from JustTheNews.com is shedding new light on Hunter Biden’s dealings during the eight years of the Obama administration; showing the Vice President’s son was provided a Secret Service security detail on hundreds of flights.
“Hunter Biden has already made headlines with his pursuit of global business, raising questions about conflicts of interests by landing lucrative deals in Ukraine and China while his father Joe was vice president,” reports JustTheNews.com. “And now it’s his proclivity for globetrotting travel that is garnering attention.”
“The son of the former vice president and 2020 Democratic presidential nominee in waiting used Secret Service protection on at least 411 international and domestic trips during the Obama years, according to records released this month under the Freedom of Information Act to the conservative watchdog Judicial Watch,” adds the website.
“Given the Burisma-Ukraine-China influence peddling scandals, Hunter Biden’s extensive international travel during the Obama-Biden presidency, including at least 5 trips to China, will raise additional questions,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said after releasing the records.

BIDEN BOMBSHELL: New Documentary Explores ‘The Bidens’ Chinese Secrets’
A 41-minute documentary titled “Riding the Dragon: The Bidens’ Chinese Secrets” investigates what Joe and Hunter Biden repeatedly and adamantly deny: their friendly relationship with the Chinese Government. The documentary “highlights several deals that Hunter Biden was involved in as a board member of the Beijing-based BHR Partners investment firm” reports the New York Post which exclusively previewed the documentary.
Conservative media has made its best efforts to unearth the corruption in Hunter Biden’s position with a Ukrainian firm for which he received a huge paycheck with zero experience in the industry. However, his father was Vice President of the United States, something few people are able to put on their resume.
Ukraine is one thing, but the Bidens’ involvement with China “served the ‘strategic interests’ of the country’s communist government and military – and may have imperiled American national security” which the new documentary suggests, is quite another. “The film also alleges that Hunter was only able to get meetings with Chinese officials – and secure $1 billion in funding – ‘because of who his father was: vice president of the United States’ and then-President Barack Obama’s ‘point person on US policy towards China” reports the Post.
“Riding the Dragon” is narrated by best-selling author Peter Schweizer, who also wrote, “Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich” in 2015. In the film, Schweizer says “Hunter’s new firm…began making investment deals around the world that would serve the strategic interests of the Chinese government.”
Furthermore, “this new firm started making investment deals that would serve the strategic interests of the Chinese military.” Also, “the Bidens have cultivated very close relationships with members of the Chinese elite,” said Schweizer. The film documents years of the Bidens’ dealings with Chinese businesses and military involvement. “In the film’s conclusion,” writes the Post, “Schweizer says that ‘these deals didn’t just make the Bidens money – they had potentially dangerous consequences for our national security.”
