Controversial foreign policy guru Henry Kissinger who is widely recognized as one of the most accomplished minds of the modern era has advised a long line of U.S. leaders since he served as Secretary of State during the Richard M. Nixon administration but has so far been snubbed by President Joe Biden who has not yet invited him to the White House.
The 99-year-old Nobel Prize winner got together with the New York Post for an interview in which he talked about his early years, when his Jewish family immigrated to the United States from Bavaria in 1938, and his later life when he “helped shape the turbulent post-WWII era” and rose to the upper echelon of elite circles where even at his advanced age, his advice has continued to be sought after.
“Those were crucial moments in my life,” he said of his younger days. “I came from a situation in which I was part of a persecuted minority that had no civil rights that was obliged to live in isolation into a country where no matter where you were obliged to start, you had the vision of a better future and you were free to express yourself.”
Kissinger, who also served as National Security Advisor under Nixon as well as Secretary of State under Gerald Ford, told the Post that one of his greatest honors has been being invited to the White House by every sitting president since Nixon “for conversations and discussions of foreign policy” until the decades-long streak was broken by the most extremist leader in the nation’s history.
According to the outlet, “Neither Obama or Trump entered the presidency with much experience in geopolitical affairs, so both had to learn the process while in office, with each man bringing their personal traits to the table when dealing with a crisis, Kissinger said.”
“He brought to international affairs a concern about the developing world, and a high degree of personal intelligence, which were very effective traits,” Kissinger said of Obama, Biden’s former boss.
Kissinger also said, “President Trump conveyed a characteristic of great decisiveness and very personal vibrancy. He was a unique phenomenon in American foreign policy.”
“I knew Biden when he was a senator, but I have had no contact with him since he has been president,” he told the Post.
“I don’t think a president is required to ask me for my counsel,” Kissinger added, saying that if he was invited that he would advise Biden to find “a common definition of our dangers and of our purposes… Ending the Ukrainian War should be a major task.”
Kissinger enraged the globalist establishment with his remarks to the World Economic Forum at Davos, Switzerland that Ukraine should give up territory to Russia in order to end the war, a position that likely didn’t sit well with the Biden regime, possibly making the esteemed intellectual persona non grata at 1600 Pennsylvania NW.
Biden’s snubbing of Kissinger drew a mixed response on Twitter.
Fvck war-mongerer Henry Kissinger. He should in prison. But that’s not reason Biden isn’t inviting him to WH. It’s cuz HK believes his Ukraine policy is bad idea & favors diplomacy over escalation into potential nuclear war.
If a mass-murderer like HK is pausing, threat is real. https://t.co/HJKtqt0cgB

Except Biden is slighting Kissinger from the right, attempting to blacklist him from elite Beltway society for the crime of imagining a realistic solution to end a bloody war that the White House seeks to prolong indefinitely in order to bleed Russia https://t.co/hUkzIRrSeZ pic.twitter.com/MMR2tcA9Iu

They say every president invites Henry Kissinger to the White House except Biden but that's probably because he can't remember if he's supposed to invite Henry Kissinger or Henry Fonda! Or is it Henry Ford? Or is it Henry Winkler? Henry Aldridge? C'mon man you know the thing!

Good for Biden, Kissinger's evil

Normally, it would be based, but Biden’s doing this only because Kissinger opposes Biden's warmongering on Ukraine.

No, bad! Biden should invite Kissinger… and then ship his ass to the Hague. https://t.co/04gS1uTNka

President Biden will NOT invite Henry Kissinger to the White House. Kissinger is a War Criminal from the Nixon Admin and he has nothing to offer to any President. Fuck Kissinger! He is near death and needs to know how awful most Americans feel about him before he dies. #Vietnam

The funny thing about Biden refusing to invite Kissinger is that he still hasn’t taken real action to reduce student loan debt or rampant defense spending, nor has he codified abortion access or LGBTQ rights 👀

Kissinger also expressed concern about the United States along with other western nations in today’s environment.
“In many of the democracies, the leaders are so obsessed and consumed by domestic politics that they have to put their effort on managing the day-to-day events without being able to shape them in the direction of a more peaceful and better world,” he told the New York Post.
“When I was in office, there were only three major news channels on television. Today, there’s an unlimited number on the internet. Leaders have to spend a lot of their efforts dealing mechanically with the various means of communication that now exist, and which also tend to shape various opinions, Kissinger said.”
