Joe Biden delivers a speech in Warsaw, Poland on 3/26/2022, in which he appeared to call for the removal of Vladimir Putin. Administration officials have denied this was Biden’s intent.

A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger

  • Proverbs 15:1

“For God’s sake, this man [Vladimir Putin] cannot remain in power.”

So concluded American President Joe Biden in his Saturday speech in Poland.

Let Biden’s words sink in for a moment.  Here’s the President of the United States uttering words that could reasonably be interpreted as a declaration of war on a sovereign, nuclear-armed power. 

Growing up during the cold war, I well remember the constant tensions between the U.S. and the Soviet Union.  But for all that, I don’t ever recall hearing the sort of threat that Biden uttered in his speech on Saturday.

Biden has held political office of one sort or another for about fifty years.  As a lawyer and as a politician he, of all people, should understand the importance of choosing the right words. 

It was King Solomon who penned the words “A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger.” Perhaps those words need to be tattooed on the forehead of Biden and his advisors, for they seem to have forgotten, or perhaps never learned them.

President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky

And Jesus answered and said unto them, take heed that no man deceive you.

  • Matthew 24:4

I have in my possession a book titled Day of Deceit by Robert B. Stinnett.  I have not read all of the book.  Indeed, I’ve only skimmed it.  But its basic thesis is that Pearl Harbor, far from being a surprise to top American leadership, was an engineered event designed to bring America into the war.  The author holds that FDR know in advance that the attack on 12/7/41 was coming and wanted it to take place. 

Before dismissing his thesis as the ravings of some fringe wingnut and lunatic, it’s worth mentioning that the book was first published in 2000 by Simon & Schuster, a major New York publisher, and was widely and positively reviewed by many mainstream reviewers.  Further, the book is still in print twenty years after its release.    

In the book’s Preface, the author himself seems almost to approve of the deceit he charges FDR with as necessary for overcoming “isolationist America.” 

As a veteran of the Pacific War, I felt a sense of outrage as I uncovered secrets that had been hidden from Americans for more than fifty years.  But I understood the agonizing dilemma faced by President Roosevelt.  He was forced to find circuitous means to persuade an isolationist America to join in a fight for freedom.  He knew this would cost lives.  How many, he could not have known (xiii).

So, FDR lied to the American people, but he did so for a good and noble cause.  This pagan way of thinking, the idea of the Noble Lie, goes back at least to Plato’s Republic.  But while situation ethics of this sort are popular with heathen past and present, it is alien to the Scriptures which command us, “Thou shalt not bear false witness.” 

If what Stinnett wrote is true, FDR and others in the know, far from being heroic defenders of America, were liars and murderers.

Further, if the government lied to Americans about Pearl Harbor – and I believe they did – this raises the question, what else have they/are they lying to us about?
