Putin has declared a nuclear alert:
Yes, you have read that correctly.
Angered by the slow progression of the invasion, Putin is feeling threatened and desperate.
He also is angry that the west is supporting the Ukraine over Russia.
So he has put his nuclear forces on “high alert.”
The Associated Press confirms:
President Vladimir Putin dramatically escalated East-West tensions by ordering Russian nuclear forces put on high alert Sunday, while Ukraine’s embattled leader agreed to talks with Moscow as Putin’s troops and tanks drove deeper into the country, closing in around the capital.
Citing “aggressive statements” by NATO and tough financial sanctions, Putin issued a directive to increase the readiness of Russia’s nuclear weapons, raising fears that the invasion of Ukraine could lead to nuclear war, whether by design or mistake.
The Russian leader is “potentially putting in play forces that, if there’s a miscalculation, could make things much, much more dangerous,” said a senior U.S. defense official, speaking on condition of anonymity to discuss rapidly unfolding military operations.
Putin’s directive came as Russian forces encountered strong resistance from Ukraine defenders. Moscow has so far failed to win full control of Ukraine’s airspace, despite advances across the country. U.S. officials say they believe the invasion has been more difficult, and slower, than the Kremlin envisioned, though that could change as Moscow adapts.
Do you think that Putin would have threatened warfare under President Trump, folks?
I think we all know the answer to that.
Yet not even two whole years into Joe Biden’s term, Putin is already shaking up the world stage.
Putin has ordered Russian nuclear deterrent forces to be on alert… and Joe Biden is… napping in Delaware.

When Russia declared its nuclear forces were in “special combat readiness,” the U.S. could have gone on high alert. It chose to de-escalate. https://t.co/6nNmYrLqKJ

So how’s that return to normalcy working out for ya?
For everyone other than Joe Biden, the world has gotten worse.
First we had to work about inflation; now, we have to worry about the seeds of a larger, potentially international conflict.
But while we’re worried….
While things have gotten worse for us….
It’s back to normalcy for Joe Biden.
He’s literally back in Delaware for the weekend while Vladamir Putin just put his nuclear forces on high alert.
The New York Post confirms that Biden was in Delaware, not the White House, this past weekend:
President Biden traveled to Delaware as invading Russian troops threatened to take control of Ukraine’s capital Saturday.
Biden’s public schedule issued by The White House showed that the commander-in-chief would spend the weekend in Wilmington, he was attending a memorial service for a family member, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said Friday.
The president, 79, and First Lady Jill Biden, 70, were photographed boarding a Marine One helicopter for the 100 mile jaunt home on Friday.
Biden spent 28 percent of his first year as president in Delaware, drawing the ire of critics who claim his administration is not transparent about his activities away from Pennsylvania Avenue, The Post reported.
But it gets even worse than that.
It took the White House hours…. hours to respond to the nuclear threat that Putin issued.
Do you think that Putin is afraid of this administration?
Today, they confirmed for the entire country that they don’t have any control over the situation or the world stage.
But here’s how Jen Psaki decided to spin it:
WH Press Sec. Psaki responds to Putin's order placing nuclear deterrent forces on high alert:
"This is exactly the kind of manufactured threats that President Putin has been using since the beginning of this crisis to justify further aggressive action." https://t.co/XQxBoLymZr pic.twitter.com/74CTQb4SMM

It is unlikely that the media will talk about this nuclear threat extensively, as it will underscore the ineptitude of the Biden administration.
