President Joe Biden on Monday called on China and Russia to work with his administration on nuclear arms reduction efforts amid growing concerns over conflict with those governments and the continued development of Iran’s nuclear program.
Biden made his remarks as the United Nations met to review the Non-Proliferation Treaty, a Cold War-era agreement on nuclear arms reduction worldwide.
“I’ve worked on arms control from the earliest days of my career, and the health of the NPT has always rested on meaningful, reciprocal arms limits between the United States and Russian Federation,” Biden said in a statement the Epoch Times obtained . “Even at the height of the Cold War, the United States and the Soviet Union were able to work together to uphold our shared responsibility to ensure strategic stability.”
“My Administration is ready to expeditiously negotiate a new arms control framework to replace New START when it expires in 2026, but negotiation requires a willing partner operating in good faith,” he continued, saying that Russia should demonstrate a commitment to peace amid its ongoing invasion of Ukraine.
Russia, however, balked at Biden’s remarks, with a Foreign Ministry official questioning the seriousness of the statement. “Is this a serious statement or has the White House website been hacked?” the unnamed official asked Reuters.
While Moscow has denied it plans to use nuclear weapons in Ukraine, it has threatened nuclear operations over the proposed expansion of NATO to include Sweden and Finland.
“[I]f Sweden and Finland join NATO, the length of the land borders of the alliance with the Russian Federation will more than double,” said Deputy Chairman of Russia’s Security Council Dmitry Medvedev. “Naturally, these boundaries will have to be strengthened.” He went on to say such an expansion of the alliance would indicated it would “no longer be possible to talk about any […]
Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
