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 […]

Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our new GiveSendGo. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Truth Based Media
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
