Biden calls Putin a ‘war criminal’
Joe Biden inadvertently caught the attention of conspiracy theorists with remarks he made at the end of a speech about the implications of Russia’s assault on Ukraine.
Speaking at a meeting of the lobbying organization Business Roundtable, Mr Biden said: ‘Now is a time when things change. We’re going to–there’s going to be a new world order out there, and we’ve got to lead it. And we must unite the rest of the free world to do so.
The “New World Order” conspiracy theory dates back decades and holds that an infamous elite led by the United Nations and other dark forces plan to install a transnational one world government through the use of force – possibly with the involvement of US agencies, including the Federal Emergency Management Agency, which some say is preparing to put Americans in concentration camps.
Meanwhile, Mr. Biden is planning a trip to Poland to reinforce his administration’s commitment to it and other NATO allies in Eastern Europe. The visit comes after the United States rejected a proposal that Poland supplied Ukraine with MiG-29 jets via a US air base in Germany.

Instead, he pointed out that the confluence of major crises – war, Covid-19 and the climate emergency – was an opportunity to dramatically improve the lives of people around the world.
