Quid-pro-Joe.

In March of this year Finland President Sauli Niinistö traveled to the White House [link].  In April reports first surfaced of Finland and Sweden joining the NATO alliance [link].  In mid-May of this year President Sauli Niinistö stated his decision for his country to join NATO was a matter of needing to choose sides, “what we see now, Europe, the world, is more divided. There’s not very much room for ‘non-aligned,’ in-between. So that was also what we are thinking,” he said [link]

The next day, May 16th, Turkish President Recep Erdogan, a preexisting NATO member, said Turkey would block the application of Sweden and Finland from joining NATO until their conditions and terms were accepted [link].  Two days later, May 19th, Joe Biden, flanked by Finnish President Sauli Niinisto and Swedish Prime Minister Magdalena Andersson (again at the White House), said the two countries would “make NATO stronger.” [link]

On Tuesday of this week Turkey removed their block of Sweden and Finland from joining NATO, and on Wednesday Joe Biden agreed to sell Turkey 40 Lockheed Martin-made F-16 fighters and nearly 80 modernization kits for its existing warplanes:

Newsmax – The Biden administration threw its support on Wednesday behind the potential sale of F-16 fighter jets to Turkey, a day after Ankara lifted a veto of NATO membership for Finland and Sweden.

Celeste Wallander, Assistant Secretary for Defense for International Security Affairs at Pentagon, said strong Turkish defense capabilities would reinforce NATO’s defenses.

“The United States supports Turkey’s modernization of its fighter fleet because that is a contribution to NATO security and therefore American security,” she said. (read more)

Finland now represents an additional 1,340 km (830 mi) long direct border with Russia.  The border runs mostly through uninhabited taiga forests and sparsely populated rural areas.  Two weeks ago, June 9, 2020, Finland announced their “government plans to amend border legislation to allow the building of barriers on its eastern frontier with Russia, […] in a move to strengthen preparedness against hybrid threats amid Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.” [link]

The NATO alliance has now done a great deal of logistical and strategic placement in advanced preparation for the next phase of the conflict with Russia.   Notice where the emphasis is in the statements from Joe Biden and Recep Erdogan (emphasis mine):

MADRID – President Biden lavishly praised Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan for his “leadership” after the autocratic leader agreed to allow Finland and Sweden to join NATO in response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

Biden sat with Erdogan on the sidelines of the Atlantic alliance’s summit in Madrid Wednesday and thanked him for allowing the two Nordic states to join the bloc as well as working on ways to export Ukrainian grain in a manner that bypasses obstructions caused by the war.

“I want to particularly thank you for what you did putting together the situation with regard to Finland and Sweden, and all the incredible work you’re doing to try to get the grain out of Ukraine and Russia. I mean, you’re doing a great job,” Biden told Erdogan.

The Turkish leader, known for jailing reporters and dissidents, had threatened to block the alliance’s expansion over Sweden and Finland taking a purportedly weak stance against Kurdish activists whom the Ankara government calls “terrorists.”  Erdogan, speaking through a translator Wednesday, said he hopes to broker exports of grain from Ukraine.

“The Russia and Ukraine conflict and the negative developments with regards to taking out of the grain from the Ukrainian ports, as well as the developments involving oil and natural gas, require all of us to work together in order to settle the disputes once and for all,” Erdogan said.

He added that “there are countries deprived of the grains, and we will open corridors, and we will allow them to have access to the grains that they so need.” 

Biden concluded a media availability by saying to Erdogan, “It’s in large [part] because of your leadership. Thank you. I really mean it. Thank you.”  (read more)

Keep in mind, every western media narrative from this Ukraine war is filled with propaganda.

Despite the western media and western government claims to the contrary, in all of the regions of the country under the control of the Ukrainian government the grain stores have been destroyed by the Ukraine military.   Brave independent journalists on the ground in Ukraine have been providing the documentary evidence of Ukraine Armed Forces (UAF) destroying and burning grain warehouses and silos. [link]

Save the direct evidence videos if you want them.  Now that CTH is showing the evidence of Ukraine government burning and destroying the grain these videos will disappear and this Twitter account will likely get removed.

Ukraine military and government officials are destroying grain storage.  At the same time fields are burning and the western media are blaming Russia for setting fire to farmland in an effort to destroy the grain harvest.   Simultaneous to these conflicting claims, also keep in mind the New York Times has been reporting the CIA and Pentagon are controlling all military operations from secret operational headquarters in Kyiv [link].

Can you see what is happening?

Again, I repeat…. The NATO justification for war against Russia will come as an outcome of food shortages and western government blaming Vladimir Putin.  Toward that end, it is in their interest to destroy food harvests from inside Ukraine in an effort to increase food shortages and support their justification.  The CIA is operating there.  Can you see what is happening?

NATO and the Western alliance need to position global food shortages on the shoulders of Vladimir Putin in order to justify their war with Russia as a war to stop global famine.   Can you see what is happening?

Joe Biden and NATO now position Turkish President Recep Erdogan as the broker, the diplomat in the middle, who is trying to help feed the world by securing Ukrainian shipments of grain that are simultaneously being destroyed by Ukrainian military operations under the control of the CIA.  Can you see what is happening?

It is not in Russia’s geopolitical or strategic interests to destroy Ukraine food supplies.

In order to maintain their geopolitical position and hold Climate Change energy policy as the priority, the western alliance must have a way to deflect the shortage of food away from their energy policy and toward something else.   Can you see what is happening?

War is coming.  It is not a question of “if”, it is a question of “when”?

Can you see what is happening?

Watch western media.

When they start really pushing Russia as the reason for world food shortages, we will be closer to the start of the war.
