Senator Joni Ernst (R-IA) said Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union” that Russian President Vladimir Putin was threatening Ukraine because he sees President Joe Biden as “weak.”


She added, “I think we have many options for deterrence when it comes to Russia, but we need to impose those now. President Putin only understands strength and power. Again, through a doctrine of appeasement, he has seen in other areas, whether it’s Iran with this administration, re-engaging Iran even though they continue with bad behavior, whether it’s working with China, whether it is the debacle we saw in Afghanistan this last year. They see a very weak administration and President Putin sees every opportunity to do what he wants to do in Ukraine with very little pushback from the United States. So we need to have firm resolve with this. We need to work with our NATO allies and make sure an invasion does not happen.”

  1. Our best and only option is to stop worrying about Ukraine’s border and send our troops to our southern border instead.

    Putin has good reasons that our politicians and news refuse to tell us about because they are complicit in wanting to protect the Big Guy’s money laundering operation in Ukraine. Plus Putin wants to shut down the globalists Playbook.
