    Walker Leads Warnock By 4% in GA, Trump Dominates Biden

    Okay, back to polling. There is a new poll from Blueprint Polling out of the state of Georgia which has Republican Herschel Walker up by 4% over incumbent Raphael Warnock while Donald Trump would easily win a rematch in a state he lost in 2020.

    US SENATE – GEORGIA (Blueprint Polling)
    Herschel Walker (R-inc) 49%
    Raphael Warnock (D) 45%

    PRESIDENT – GEORGIA (Blueprint Polling)
    Donald Trump (R) 50%
    Joe Biden (D-inc) 36%

      Hard to believe Walker’s margin is 10% worse than Trump’s.

    2. Tgca says:

      Dos Bebe! Dos!

    3. jason says:

      What humiliation.

      “Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and the U.A.E.’s Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed al Nahyan both declined U.S. requests to speak to Mr. Biden in recent weeks, the officials said, as Saudi and Emirati officials have become more vocal in recent weeks in their criticism of American policy in the Gulf.”

      “There was some expectation of a phone call, but it didn’t happen,” said a U.S. official of the planned discussion between the Saudi Prince Mohammed and Mr. Biden. “It was part of turning on the spigot [of Saudi oil].”

    4. Cash Cow TM says:

      Some years ago when traveling across TX and OK, Cow saw many grasshopper oil pumps. Some doing see-saw pumping some not.

      When I asked about that, I was told that the federal govt. puts some sort of production cap on each grasshopper pump. Something like 10 or 50 or 100 barrels/day. And once that pump reaches that cap it has to stop pumping crude out of the ground.

      Is that true?

    5. Tgca says:

      Agreed! I’m glad the Saudis are sending a message.

      The Biden policy of cutting back drilling in the Gulf is crazy in these times of energy resource instability.

      Think of all the lost high paying jobs in the Houston, New Orleans, Tampa/Clearwater/St. Pete areas.

      New Orleans has never fully recovered from Katrina so we need policies to invest in the Gulf.

    6. Wes says:

      Walker is putting daylight between himself and Warnock. That’s a good sign.

    7. Tgca says:

      We need to push for a NFZ in Ethiopia.

      The UN is reporting that the Ethiopia military has killed over 300 of its own people in air strikes and the ongoing war between Ethiopia and the separatists is resulting in a crisis requiring humanitarian aid and intervention.

      The US needs to intervene ASAP! It’s the moral and right thing to do. People are dying.

      The US, as the world’s lone superpower has a duty to step up and act before it’s too late.

      America has vital interests in ensuring this escalating war does not spill over and destabilize Africa.

    8. jason says:

      I am optimistic that the combination of Biden’s unpopularity and less fraud will help Walker win.

    9. jason says:

      I am glad Tgca favors a NFZ in Ukraine and in Ethiopia.

      I think you should find a better word than “daylight” to describe dividing lines between two AA men.

      It can be construed as “code” in stereotyping and a hidden racial slur.

      Just saying…

    11. Phil says:

      Fraud? There was never any fraud in Georgia. The Republican Georgia SOS says there wasn’t.

    12. Tgca says:

      I think we need a NFZ in Floreedah too.

      Stop all those friggin’ NYers moving down here and jacking up the rents. They’re forcing locals to move because there’s no rent control in Floreedah.

      Landlords are raising rents by 30% to 40% on average and often higher and forcing people out of month-to-month rentals. They give you 60 day notice that your rent is increasing by $500 to $1,000 monthly.

      Not joking!

      Basic 2 BR rentals in Miami/Fort Lauderdale in safe areas are now going from $2,800 to $3,500 monthly up from $1,700 to $1,900 a year ago. The fancy high rises 2BR with amenities are going for $4,000+.

      2 and 3 BR houses are going for between $3,000 and $4,800+ just for basic older non-fancy houses without amenities…and these were renting for roughly $2,300 less than a year ago.

      This is crazy and nothing can be done about it. People need a place to live. This is like San Francisco in the early 2000’s.

      The only reasonably priced homes are in the less desirable neighborhoods with high crime, drugs, and blighted areas.

      Many working class folks can’t afford it…and they can’t afford to buy either so they will be forced to move to bad neighborhoods or ultimately leave south Floreedah or live out of cars or God knows what.

    13. Tgca says:

      I think this is a risk for DeSantis in an election year if folks all of a sudden are having their rents increase by 30%+ on top of gas and food increase and other inflationary increases like mortgage loans which are expected to jump next week after the fed meets proving even more folks out of the market.

      It’s worse down in south Floreedah but I checked Tampa and Orlando rentals and see significant increases there too, more in the 20% increase range but that that’s still very high for an area where the average salary in in the low $50,000s. If you’re rent increases by $300 or $400 monthly on a $50,000 annual salary that’s a tough pill to swallow.

      One guy I know just bought his house last year and it’s increased $100,000 since then. I think we’re going to have a real estate and potentially market crisis if the state doesn’t do something soon because it’s a domino effect if this turns into a 2008 similar housing market crash in Floreedah.

    14. Tgca says:

      Lust of 300+ companies that have curtailed operations in Russia. Impressive list at 1st glance if it remains for a definite period.

      https://som.yale.edu/story/2022/over-300-companies-have-withdrawn-russia-some-remain

    15. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      “Four in five Americans support US ban on Russian energy
      A large majority of Americans supports an end to US imports of Russian energy despite surging gasoline prices, according to a Reuters/Ipsos opinion poll.”

    16. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      If Russian President Vladimir Putin goes beyond Ukraine and attacks a NATO country, would you support or oppose a military response from the United States?

      Support 79%
      Oppose 14%

      @QuinnipiacPoll
      1,374 Adults, 3/4-6

    17. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      “According to a presidential decree that Putin signed in 2015, all military deaths are a state secret. This means that frantic families who contact the Ministry of Defence asking for information about the welfare of their sons are routinely met either with silence or delaying tactics, such as advice to contact a unit commander directly or write to the Red Cross.

      Ukraine has seemingly taken a very different approach. According to news reports, when Russian soldiers are captured they are allowed to phone their families, both to assure those back home that they are alive but also to convey to them the reality of this war.”

    18. jason says:

      The list of companies ceasing operations is impressive, it means hundreds of thousands of jobs with wide ranging impact.

      The downside is that it probably pushes Russia away from a market economy, ties to the West, and towards state run system, as Putin will probably nationalize some of these businesses.

    19. Gordon Allen says:

      Check the Article in Real Clear Defense ” Russian Occupation of Ukraine Troop to Task Estimate” for those of you worrying about Putin surging against other countries post Ukraine.
      Basically, occupying HALF of Ukraine, with normal rotations, would require basically all Russia’s ground combat forces, leaving absolutely NO excess combat potential at all.
      Just saying. Again

    20. jason says:

      occupying HALF of Ukraine,”

      Neville Allen’s goalposts still moving, I see.

      We went from Putin does not have enough forces to launch an invasion to “he doesn’t have enough forces beyond occupying half the Ukraine”.

      Give Neville Allen the HHR Clown of the Week award.

    21. jason says:

      Neville Allen also misses the main point, probably intentionally.

      Putin’s plan for a greater Russian and to recreate the Soviet Union does not involve attacking several countries at one time militarily.

      It involves a country by country replacement of any independent or anti-Russia governments by pro-Russia puppet governments.

      It already happened in Belarus. Once the Ukraine is “pacified and disarmed” with a puppet pro-Kremlin government, then Putin can threaten Moldova from within Ukraine’s border. He can also move his troops elsewhere. His goal in the Ukraine is not to permanently occupy it militarily, it is to disarm it and install a puppet regime.

      This BS about “no excess combat potential” is a straw argument and complete misrepresentation of the situation.

      But once again, Neville Allen claims the Russian military is weak and overstretched. If that is the case why is he so worried they will “kick our butts” if we take a stronger stance against Putin?

    22. Tom says:

      18. That might not work this time around. When the communist took over, the average Russian was an impoverished peasant. Communism was just a continuation of the status quo for them. Now that most Russians have had a taste of prosperity and many have traveled to the West, they’re not going be content with going back a state-run economy with all the supply problems that entails. They’ve seen a better way and know the other doesn’t work.

    23. jason says:

      I feel bad Neville Allen has wasted his money trying to buy expertise from magazines, obviously he was fed a lot bogus theories. He should take his cue from Tgca, who is an expert with home grown expertise from his own brain without any outside input.

      I am not insensitive to other people’s problems, and I would gladly contribute $10 to reimburse Neville Allen for his losses, if 9 other people kick in $10 we can make the poor bastard whole again.

    24. jason says:

      Tom, not saying that is what the people want, but Russia is now pretty much a one party state with no dissent allowed, the last independent media sources are now closed, so they might not have much say in opposing a state run economy. We know what a totalitarian government can do to the private sector, look at Venezuela and other socialist “paradises”.

      But I hope you are right, that it won’t fly.

    25. Bitterlaw says:

      Gordon’s mistake was to predict that Russia would not invade Ukraine. Everything after that was Zzzzzzzzz.

    26. Tgca says:

      21

      With the vast majority of Ukraine against Russia, how would Pootin be able to put a puppet gubbermint in place to control 44M people, who have shown a willingness to fight?

      That makes no sense! Belarus is already allied with Russia, Ukraine is not and has shown they are willing to fight to the death, at least up to now.

      The new gubbermint would need an enormous armed force to control that many people and quell uprisings.

    27. jason says:

      I envy CDM, lucky bastard. He is now working on his boat and listening to the radio talk about “Putin’s mischief”, content and without a care in the world.

    28. jason says:

      With the vast majority of Ukraine against Russia, how would Pootin be able to put a puppet gubbermint in place to control 44M people, who have shown a willingness to fight?”

      Let’s hope Putin miscalculated on that one, but the war is not over and we don’t know that he won’t be able to achieve his goal of regime change. That is still very possible despite the losses the Russians are suffering.

      It doesn’t change the fact that is his goal and Neville Allen is wrong to claim that Putin’s plan is to attack several countries at once militarily.

    29. Tgca says:

      Jadon

      What are your sources of information to justify your views on this matter?

      You have yet to name them, after repeated requests.

      If you were brought on a witness in this matter, one of the 1st questions to be asked of you is your background and education in these matters that qualify you to offer an opinion.

      How are you more qualified to speak of these than Gordy or anyone else.

      From my view, they seem to be your personal opinions not supported by any outside sources or expertise.

    30. jason says:

      I would say everything after that is smoke and mirrors while digging a deeper hole.

    31. jason says:

      From my view, they seem to be your personal opinions not supported by any outside sources or expertise.”

      As opposed to your opinions?

      LOL.

      And btw, most of your posts are prefaced with saying you agree with me.

    32. jason says:

      Here’s the deal.

      To start with, I mock Neville Allen’s magazine expertise because what he claims to be expertise, data on military strength and hardware and capabilities, is readily available on the Internet. I think he is an empty suit who doesn’t understand anything about geopolitics beyond his isolationist dogma that all interventions are bad.

      Second, I base a lot of my views on the fact History is full of examples of how appeasement of despots does not work. You are free to disagree.

      Third, I have traveled extensively in Russia an Ukraine, it doesn’t make me an expert in either country, but if you note I was always skeptical of the idea the Ukraine would fold quickly, I knew from my experience there that most Ukrainians do NOT consider themselves any part of a Russian empire and the “one people” theory, and want to be independent of Russia.

      Fourth, I have decades of experience in international business focusing on country by country and risk analyses, including eastern Europe. I understand well the follies of isolationist thinking in a globalized (whether you like it or not) world.

      This is not a court of law, and I am not, like Neville Allen, selling myself as an expert.

      GFY.

    33. jason says:

      Actually even NYC says he agrees with me.

      The problem is I can only be right if Trump is President, not if Biden is President.

    34. jason says:

      Bitter, the monstrous drill last night on Oak Island came up with some wood, a slab of slate, some pieces of concrete, and some dynamite wrapping.

      I told you they would find something, I am prescient.

      I think next week they will find more things.

    35. Tgca says:

      31

      I’m an EXPERT in all things except all things gay to which I defer to LisaB.

      I know Experts, and you sir are NO expert!

      Kidding aside, my point is Gordy’s opinions are just as valid as anyone else’s here.

      His reliance on professional magazines, associations, books, and seminars is actually typical in any profession. Most people gather their knowledge from these resources who are often previous professionals in the field of expertise.

      They are generally more reliable than the MSM and most resources people would other come across daily.

      It doesn’t mean these professionals will always be correct but more often than not, and by a vast margin, they have more knowledge and credibility in the subject matter compared to everyday folks.

    36. Tgca says:

      Sorry! I’m a bit grumpy today.

      I got less than 3 hours sleep because I woke up for no reason and could not fall back asleep.

      I’ve also have not had any tofu yet today.

      So tired and no tofu in my belly makes for a grumpy me.

    37. Tom says:

      Tgca, your sleeplessness is clearly a sign of protein deficiency.

    38. Tom says:

      I would love to see the opposition in Belarus to rise up again. Let’s see how many fires Putin can put out at one time.

    39. Tgca says:

      How can I be protein deficient when I eat eggs, tofu, and dairy products religiously?

      My blood work always shows my protein numbers are good too.

      I think it’s you people at HHR stressing me out.

      Just yesterday, after defending CDM he tells me “bless your heart” for no reason.

      Others offended me with subtle comments about AA when they know I’m AA.

      Then there’s those who eat meat and flaunt it.

      The stress adds up I tell ya!

    40. jason says:

      Kidding aside, my point is Gordy’s opinions are just as valid as anyone else’s here.”

      Not really. He predicted the Russians would never invade.

      Then he disappeared when they did, and finally came back after he reinvented himself with new theories just as wrong.

      Not all opinions are “valid”. Some are just plain wrong.

    41. Bitterlaw says:

      Jason – Incredible finds. This obviously means that dynamite was invented by either the Knights Templar or Blackbeard the Pirate!

    42. jason says:

      “I would love to see the opposition in Belarus to rise up again. Let’s see how many fires Putin can put out at one time.”

      Unfortunately, I think that domino has fallen.

    43. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      Let’s hope there is a settlement. It is ironic that Putin is invading a country to end Nazism that has a Jewish leader:

      “US-based news site Axios reported on Tuesday night that the Israeli officials felt there had been a “softening of positions on both sides” the Russians were saying “they only want to demilitarise the Donbas”.

      Putin declared at the start of the invasion that he wanted to defend Russian-speaking communities through the “demilitarisation and de-Nazification” of Ukraine. He also demanded Ukraine recognise Crimea as part of Russia and recognise the independence of the Russian-backed areas of Luhansk and Donetsk, which are part of the Donbas region.

      The Russian proposal was “difficult” for Zelensky to accept, but it “doesn’t include regime change in Kyiv and allows Ukraine to keep its sovereignty”, the Israeli officials added.””

    44. jason says:

      Jason – Incredible finds. This obviously means that dynamite was invented by either the Knights Templar or Blackbeard the Pirate!”

      Not so sure. It could have been FDR.

      The important thing is that the Lagina brothers both stated that they are “close”.

      So far they have invested over $20 million and recovered 1/100 of an oz of gold, possibly from a gold tooth from a skeleton of a previous explorer.

      There could easily be more bodies and more gold.

    45. jason says:

      the Russians were saying “they only want to demilitarise the Donbas”.

      Zzzzzz…. 5000+ dead, 20000+ wounded, billions in lost equipment, pariah status in the world and a wrecked economy to “demilitarise the Donbas”?

      Puhhhhhleeeeze…..let’s get real.

    46. jason says:

      The Russian proposal was “difficult” for Zelensky to accept, ”

      Yes, complete surrender and capitulation general is hard to “accept”.

      Here is what I think Zelensky can accept if Russia agrees to pull out all troops to pre war borders. Cede Crimea and the pre-war borders of the separatists under protest. Ukraine did not control these areas anyway.

      Agree not to deploy offensive missiles x-miles from the Russian border. Maybe even agree to a demilitarized zone of say 10 miles at the border. This Putin can sell at home as a victory.

      DO NOT agree not to join NATO or the EU, that is suicidal, might as well surrender now. Doing that says hey Russia, whenever we do something you don’t like, feel free to invade us.

      LOOKING FOR OIL IN ALL THE WRONG PLACES

      By Joe Biden
      *****************************

      Well, I spent a lifetime being a fool
      Basement dwelling dementia-ac trying to be cool
      Playin’ with Putin, hopin’ to win
      Having not a clue, and losin’ again.

      I went lookin’ for oil in all the wrong places
      Ignoring the crisis America faces
      Look to Ven’sula, Iran, and all sorts of places
      But what I’m dreamin’ of

      Is being a friend of climate change lovers
      With my words and actions, giving them cover,
      As I pretending to be, lookin’ for oil.

      I shut down the Keystone, no oil in sight
      I did all I could to shut down fossil fuels tight
      Oh what I’ve started, now where will it all end?
      Crisis be damned, the climate hucksters’ my friends.

      I went looking for oil in all the wrong places
      Some folks say I’ve not run out of aces
      I could get oil in Texas and all over the nation
      To meet the crisis that we are all facing
      Don’t they know what I’m dreaming of?

      Seeing the angst on U.S. motorists faces
      I blame Big Oil for gas’s skyrocketing paces
      Blame Big Oil and make them the villain
      While Ukrainians are facing a big time killing
      I’m looking for oil…

      Watching Ol’ Putin tie me in knots
      But I ain’t real good at calling the shots
      Watching Ukraine just twist in the winds
      But how can I go against my climate change friends?

      I’ll make it look like,
      I’m looking for oil…

      As an AA, hearing racist condescending comments here or finding out that my local stores are sold out of tofu with no expectation of when the stock will be replenished is just as stressful as folks who worry their licensing boards are spying on the websites to see if people are engaging in inappropriate behavior that would warrant suspending their licenses.

      Some associations of soldiers’ mothers in Russia had raised concerns about a number of conscripts going incommunicado at the start of what Kremlin calls a “special military operation” in Ukraine, suggesting they could have been sent to fight despite a lack of adequate training
      “Unfortunately, we have discovered several facts of the presence of conscripts in units taking part in the special military operation in Ukraine. Practically all such soldiers have been pulled out to Russia,” the defence ministry said, promising to prevent such situations in the future”

      Plant-Based Meat Loses its Luster at Fast Food Chains

      Large Fast Food Chains Pull Back on Fake Meat

      Beyond Meat’s (BYND) and Impossible Foods’ aspirations to transform the fast-food industry with fake meat are not panning out as hoped. Some of the nation’s biggest chains are pulling back spending on faux meat.

      Dunkin Donuts (DNKN) has pulled Beyond Meat breakfast sausage from thousands of stores, while KFC (YUM) tested Beyond Meat’s chicken nuggets but never added them to the menu. Meanwhile, Burger King (QSR) is reducing spending on marketing for the Impossible Whopper.

      The pandemic has changed the way Americans dine out and eat in. Comfort food and familiar meals are trending. Sales of plant-based sandwiches and burgers are flat in restaurants for the year as of June. Meanwhile, orders of beef burgers are up 12%.

      This is frustrating.

      77 year-old belligerent man got mad about service at Dunkin’ Donuts and argued with staff.

      He called 27 year-old worker N-word twice.

      The young dude hit the old man in the head and knocked him out and to the ground where he hit his head hard and died from brain injuries 3 days later.

      Originally, the young guy was charged with aggravated manslaughter but a plea bargain was done for lesser charge because he has a clean record.

      His sentence is 2 years house arrest, 200 hours of community service, and anger management training.

      Words have consequences but I struggle with such a light sentence even if the young man had no record before and I assume he regrets his actions so you don’t want to ruin his life. But the fact is he lost control and took the life of another person.

      Attacking someone physically, especially an elderly person is NEVER ok no matter what they said.

      Calling someone the N-word is horrific but no worse than a racial slur against any group, and is NOT a reason to use physical force. EVER!!!

      I think he should have gotten at least a year or two in some sort of jailed confinement even if it was not a harsh prison environment.

      I think PC played a part in this punishment. I doubt very much had it been the other way around where a young white dude hit a belligerent elderly AA who then died, that the younger dude would simply get house arrest, community service and anger management training.

      I hope this young man is able to go on with a good life and never have trouble with the law again but it is deeply concerning, this very light sentence.

      I would also add that the problem we face is because Biden didn’t do what Trump had done. The cat is out of the bag, due to the election of Biden. He changed all of Trump’s policies, and this is what we have now.

      I hope its clear now, I want you classified as correctly as possible.

    130. jason says:

      Food for thought for the Nevilles who think this is only about the Donbas or even the Ukraine.

      “BELGRADE, Serbia (AP) — For some European countries watching Russia’s brutal war in Ukraine, there are fears that they could be next.

      Western officials say the most vulnerable could be those who aren’t members of NATO or the European Union, and thus alone and unprotected — including Ukraine’s neighbor Moldova and Russia’s neighbor Georgia, both of them formerly part of the Soviet Union — along with the Balkan states of Bosnia and Kosovo.

      But analysts warn that even NATO members could be at risk, such as Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania on Russia’s doorstep, as well as Montenegro, either from Moscow’s direct military intervention or attempts at political destabilization.

      Russian President Vladimir Putin “has said right from the start that this is not only about Ukraine,” said Michal Baranowski, director of the German Marshall Fund’s Warsaw office.

      “He told us what he wants to do when he was listing his demands, which included the change of the government in Kyiv, but he was also talking about the eastern flank of NATO and the rest of Eastern Europe,” Baranowski told The Associated Press in an interview.

      As Ukraine puts up stiff resistance to the two-week-old Russian attack, Baranowski said “it’s now not really clear how he’ll carry out his other goals.”

      But the Biden administration is acutely aware of deep concerns in Eastern and Central Europe that the war in Ukraine may be just a prelude to broader attacks on former Warsaw Pact members in trying to restore Moscow’s regional dominance.

      EU foreign policy chief Josep Borrell has said that “Russia is not going to stop in Ukraine.”

      “We are concerned for neighbors Moldova, Georgia, and the Western Balkans,” he said. “We have to keep an eye on Western Balks, particularly Bosnia, which could face destabilization by Russia.”

      NYC to bleat “we can’t worry about what Putin’s plans are, Biden is President”.

      Ukraine is old news. We have more important issues to contend with in our own land.

      As AA I stand with Jussie. No person, especially an AA should be afraid to walk the streets of Chicago at night in fear of MAGA thugs attacking you.

      1. Those who love to rush to war and pound their chest about America’s dominance 1st and foremost and want to police the world.

      2. Those who believe we go to war only in certain instances where we have significant strategic instances and ensure we have a well documented plan of engagement and exit plan.

      3. Those who want no war unless we’re directly attacked and feel we should not be policing the world.

      Sixty-nine percent answered “yes” to the question while 31 percent said “no.” Even members of Biden’s party, the Democrats, answered “yes”more often than “no,” 53 percent to 47 percent. Only 14 percent of Republicans did not want more exploration while just 30 percent of independents said “no.””

      Tucker, as Neville Allen, got caught with his pants down. He was wrong that the Russians wouldn’t invade and now thinks he has to be Putin’s B-tch to cover for it.

      I spent a lot of time defending him here even when I didn’t agree with him and ridiculed the idea of cancelling him for his views. There are precious few independent conservative voices in the media, and I thought it was important to keep him on the air. I liked it when he put Marxist moonbats on the show and proceeded to destroy them. I hated his hit pieces on Noem and Loeffler.

      But becoming Putin’s Stooge is a over the top for me, there is no possible justification for it and he just engaging in pro-Russia propaganda of the worse sort.

      Plus their military is weak so they pose no threat. Except if we talk about standing up to them, in which case their military is extremely powerful and would kick our butts.

      They don’t want a “Greater Russia” or to recreate the Soviet Union, the reason they want to install puppet governments in all the former soviet republics is because the want to eliminate “corruption”.

    156. jason says:

      Frankly, he arguments we are having on this site are very disheartening to me.

It seems our divisions can no longer be bridged, it does not bode well for conservatives or the country.

There are now factions with many coming up with excuses to avoid confronting Putin but promising to unleash hell if he attacks a NATO member. The problem with that view is that Putin feeds on weakness. Also, dead NATO civilians and non-NATO civilians look the same.

      Yes. Biden sucks and won’t do what we say must be done. That does not mean that we should avoid saying must be done.

      So the people of Ethiopia and Yemen are not worth US military intervention while white Ukrainian civilians are worth military intervention is what I’m hearing here.

      Cherry-picking what civilians to save weakens the argument that we should base military intervention on saving civilians in the 1st place.

      If we should militarily intervene to save civilians, we should do that wherever in the world saving civilians from atrocities is needed.

      It’s like saying there should be hate crimes to protect gays and Jews because they’re a targeted group for discrimination but no hate crimes for AA and Latinos.

      It makes no sense as a policy and makes people wonder if it’s a bigoted policy if it includes cherry-picking.

    205. Tgca says:

      I think the major disagreement here between the “war mongering “ and “significant strategic requirements before war” teams is that the former team still believes Amerika is in a position of strength and the ultimate decider of all world events, and that team will always find a way to excuse away American mistakes and bad judgment.

      They’re stuck in the 80s! The world has changed significantly and become smaller since then and the US influence worldwide is waning.

      Just like Russia can’t rebuild its empire, the US can’t rebuild its unquestioned world dominance.

      The US can’t “war itself” back into the hearts of those that have lost regard for America’s dominance.

      Admitting the errors and mistakes the US has made does not make it isolationist or weak either, it makes it realistic and reduces resentment among allies who don’t want to continuously play 2nd fiddle to the US all the time.

      Trump is at 50% in the poll, and Walker is at 49%. The only reason why Trump has a much bigger lead than Walker is because Biden polls at 36% while Warnock is holding his base at 45%; I haven’t seen the internals, but I have a strong suspicion that what’s going on is that Democrats (white and black) who recognize what a flustercluck Democrat government has been are willing to say that they wouldn’t vote for Biden but are not willing to admit to pollsters that they wouldn’t vote for a black Senate incumbent such as Warnock. I have a feeling that, if GA elections were held today, Walker would defeat Warnock by quite a bit more than 4%.

      This is a “he said, she said” case with no evidence. It’s a low level felony 4 that some states don’t even prosecute.

      The media has done Jussie injustice and did not do proper investigative reporting, they need to get to the truth.

      Jussie’s 92 year-old white Jewish grandma who has marched with MLK and other civil rights activists has asked not to sentence Jussie to prison but if he must, please send her to prison along with him.

      As a gay AA male with Jewish heritage, sending him to prison puts him at great risk.

      If someone as high profile as Jussie can be sent to prison, what does that mean for the rest of us on society who don’t have the high profile image.

      Jussie is not a risk to society and there was no drugs or violence or sex involved. The only one that was harmed was Jussie.

      Many people and groups have sent letters to attest to Jussie’s character and requesting leniency and prison time. They include:

      BLM
      Samuel L. Jackson, actor
      Rev. Jesse Jackson
      ACLU

    231. Tom says:

      Gee, no mention that Jussie was a lying little POS with political agenda? Go figure.

    232. Tgca says:

      Wow! I must admit I am moved by all these people coming out on Jussie’s behalf.

      I doubt myself or anyone here at HHR could inspire that many to come forth and pay tribute to us as having great character and a kind heart.

      Second only to Jesus, Jussie has demonstrated what great character he has and it would be a travesty of justice to incarcerate him. It would be like crucifying Jesus all over again during this Lenten season.

      Is it just coincidence that the name Jussie sounds a lot like Jesus, especially after having a few drinks? I think not!

      I understand the analogy of Jussie’s suffering to that of Jesus so in this Lenten season we should all have forgiveness in our hearts.

      I can only pray that people would think as kindly of me someday as they do of Jussie.

      This really wants to make me be a better person. I’m serious!

      I might just put a picture of Jussie on my refrigerator next to my beloved deceased pooch to remind me daily to strive to be a better person though I doubt I can ever achieve the same level of respect and admiration as Jussie.

    233. Tgca says:

      I was really moved by Jussie’s 92 year-old white Jewish grandmother who reminded the court she lost her son, Jussie’s father, to cancer in his 50’s, as she asked for sentencing leniency to her innocent grandson and requested no incarceration for him, but if he is incarcerated, please send her to prison with him.

      But the comment that moved me the most and brought tears to my eyes is when his ex-boss, whom he worked for in a non-profit before his fame, stated how he would take the bus to work because he did not have a car. I assume he had to walk to the bus stop too and often wait for buses that don’t always run on time.

      That really got me!

      Whew! I still get emotional thinking of this guy taking the bus all by himself to work.

      Ok. I gotta stop here! I need to get control and compose myself.

    234. CG says:

      I have been listening to the Smollett hearing online all day.

      Right now, his lawyer just said that if he gets sent to jail, he is being sentenced to die of Covid.

    235. CG says:

      And his lawyer cited Donald Trump’ efforts to keep innocent black people out of prison.

    236. Tgca says:

      246. CG

      If you’re listening then you know how much Jussie has already suffered.

      For Christ’s sakes, where’s your compassion?

      The poor dude had to take a bus to work when he was a teen.

      He’s an American gay man, half-black too. Does that not count for anything?

    237. CG says:

      Smollett declines to speak. Sentence announcement upcoming.

      My guess is a short amount of time in the county jail due to zero contrition, plus probation.

    238. CG says:

      They did let him show up after a half hour late to court.

      And on the way in, one of his security guards threw a cameraman to the ground.

    239. CG says:

      Cameras are almost never allowed in Cook County courtrooms, so this has been an interesting to see.

      The 92 year old grandmother took the stand, looked at the media and ranted about fake news. Then on her way off the stand, she pointed her finger and the judge and scolded him for what he might do. Being elderly has its privileges.

    240. CG says:

      The defense attorney basically told the long-haired aging hippie judge that he has a great reputation for fair sentencing but if Jussie gets any time behind bars, he will go down in history as up there with Jefferson Davis, Bull Connor, and George Wallace.

    241. Tgca says:

      I think Jussie’s 92 year-old white Jewish grandma who has asked to be sentenced with him to jail if he gets jail time is a HERO!

      More so then Zelensky, that’s for sure.

      She definitely deserves the Reagan Freedom Award for her courage.

    242. CG says:

      Zelensky is one Jew who deserves some awards.

    243. CG says:

      Speculation is the judge is waiting until 6 pm so that he can do the sentencing live at the top of the local news.

    244. CG says:

      The judge drinks Diet Ocean Spray.

    245. Tgca says:

      256

      Diet Ocean Spray? REALLY?

      A white person’s drink!

      Another issue to address on appeal.

    246. CG says:

      Judge tells Smollett he already destroyed his own life. There isn’ much he can do to make it worse for him.

    247. CG says:

      Judge agrees that Smollett is from a mixed race family of entertainers.

    248. CG says:

      Judge confirms that Smollett was a long-time social justice warrior.. then calls him a hypocrite.

    249. CG says:

      Smollett has kept his mask on throughout the day.

    250. CG says:

      Judge says he does not think Smollett did it for the money but that he did it for attention.

    251. CG says:

      Judge calls him “arrogant”, “selfish” and “narcissistic” but otherwise someone with talents and good qualities.

      Sounds like how some of you defend Trump.

    252. Phil says:

      I wondered how Corey would somehow turn this into a shot at Trump.

      Never Trumpers. They just can’t let go.

    253. CG says:

      Jussie and Trump both belong behind bars alright.

    254. Tgca says:

      White judge on his pedestal lecturing a gay AA male on hate crimes. Geez!

      He says nothing worse than hate crime, whether it be based on race, sexual orientation, age, …

      Oh yeah! I noted he didn’t mention hatred towards us vegetarians.

      Try walking down the street eating a tofu burrito or snack in front of a vile meat-eating society.

      So spare me the lecture please when every day we vegetarians deal with hate and threats.

    255. Phil says:

      Uh, ok. bTW, How’s your boy doing in the WH?

      I’ll hang up and listen.

    256. CG says:

      Commander, the new puppy? I’m sure he is doing better than his owner.

    257. Phil says:

      The Kamala comedy tour made a stop in Poland today. It was a hoot.

    258. CG says:

      For all his many faults, I would take Biden and the USA over Putin though. It is a shame others in this country feel differently.

    259. Tgca says:

      Did this racist judge refer to Let’s Go Brandon?

      WTF is he mentioning Brandon for? He keeps on saying the name Brandon over and over.

      This is virtue signaling to white folks.

      I’m actually waiting for him to give the white supremacist OK hand signal.

      Definite appeal material!

    260. CG says:

      Judge Linn is clearly going to take the full half hour of wall to wall live local news coverage.

    261. Phil says:

      No, the boy you voted to put there. I give his dog a pass.

    262. CG says:

      Brandon was somebodys friend of somebody who should have told Jussie to call off the hoax because it was too cold out.

    263. Phil says:

      Geez, judge. Get on with it.

    264. CG says:

      Is this on nationally somewhere on cable or are you people watching online?

    265. Tgca says:

      274

      BS! There’s no need for the white judge to keep referring to the guy Jussie was talking to on the phone by his name Brandon.

      Brandon has a specific meaning in our society!

      This white judge is virtue signaling to white people!

      Let’s not kid ourselves.

    266. CG says:

      Maybe the Judge wants to run for Mayor of Chicago.

    267. Tgca says:

      Here’s on line link showing white racist judge going off on an AA gay male about hate crimes.

      https://www.nbcchicago.com/news/local/watch-live-from-the-courtroom-jussie-smollett-set-to-be-sentenced/2779870/

    268. CG says:

      He’s a charlatan and its shameful. Nice alliteration.

    269. CG says:

      He’s being so tough on him, I am starting to think he only gets probation.

    270. CG says:

      You are a horrible perjurer and you deserve to go to prison for that but….

    271. CG says:

      150 days in Cook County jail starting right now….

      I’m actually surprised since he was just talking about 30 months probation first.

    272. Phil says:

      Judge probably doesn’t want BLM to burn down his house.

    273. CG says:

      Jussie ranting and declaring his innocence and saying he is not suicidal.

      He thinks someone is going to Epstein him.

    274. Phil says:

      Well, that’s certainly more than I expected.

    275. CG says:

      Judge should have said since you are not suicidal and still saying you are innocent, I’m adding on another 50 days.

    276. Tgca says:

      Jussie has been sentenced!

      30 months probation, 120 days in county jail, $120K restitution to Chicago, and $25k fine.

      This is a travesty!

      He did nothing wrong but go out to get a sandwich at 2AM in weather so frigid that it was near record-breaking, only to be attacked by hateful MAGA supporters terrorizing Chicago that he fought off because he was not going to go down without a fight, being the badass AA gay male he is!

      Bobby Brown ain’t got chit on Jussie!!!

      APPEAL! APPEAL!

      Jussie was denied a fair trial by a jury of his peers! There were no gay AA men with Jewish heritage who took the bus to work as a teen on that jury. FACT! We know this!

    277. CG says:

      He’ll serve about half of 150 days.

    278. Tgca says:

      288

      150 days not 120 days.

    279. Phil says:

      287

      That would have been classic. Would pay to see that.

    280. CG says:

      Jussie storms out of courtroom with his first raise declaring he is innocent and not suicidal.

    281. CG says:

      Maybe Jussie thinks some MAGA dudes are going to kill him in the Cook County lockup.

    282. Tgca says:

      Jussie may not be suicidal but he sounds like a crazy ass Bish ranting and doing the BLM fist in the air.

    283. Tgca says:

      I think they have good grounds for appeal, especially the Brandon comments.

      …and what’s up with the white judge saying he had an arrogant narcissistic “dark side” to him? Really? Telling an AA make he is dark in front of all.

      That is clearly racist.

    284. CG says:

      The grandma just got sentenced to two weeks at Shady Pines Nursing Home.

    285. Tgca says:

      Jussie’s oldest brother complaining judge is a stooge for the prosecutors and outraged he shamed and chastised his brother during sentencing and we don’t do that in 2022. No reason to shame him publicly.

      Younger brother raging Jussie is innocent and a victim. Complaining we should not lock up victims.

      Jussie’s grandma says this was a frame-up and chastises press for not doing investigative reporting. She thinks they should be going after white collar crimes where those people are making lots of money. They need to be locked up.

      Now friends of Jussie’s saying how can Jussie be locked up when Trump is not locked up for telling thousands of lies. Trump is the real criminal.

    286. CG says:

      Trump would have an even better rant if he ever gets hauled off to custody.

    287. CG says:

      He’s the first person I’ve ever seen taken into custody after a sentencing who does not get handcuffed in the courtroom.

    288. CG says:

      They should be asking why is he locked up tonight while Bill Cosby is free.

    289. Tgca says:

      Minority attorney representing two Nigerian brothers who hoaxed up crime with Jussie says the brothers regret their role in this hoax.

      They were wrong in being so loyal and misled by loyalty and love for Jussie.

      It’s time to move on though.

      They encourage Jussie to not let this conviction define his life and move on to do better, just like one of the Nigerians brothers who was once convicted of a felony but went on to get two degrees and start his own business so there is a message of hope for Jussie there.

    290. mnw says:

      299

      You need to get out more, then.

    291. Tgca says:

      I think Jussie was auditioning for the role in the upcoming Lifetine Channel movie biopic The Jussie Smollet Story: A Gay African American Male.

      I think he comes across as believable in that he is not suicidal but instead just a lying arrogant narcissistic actor trying to manipulate America.

      Very believable performance. I wonder how long he rehearsed that. Hmmm…

    297. Phil says:

      Got to quit retreating whenever Putin threatens. Just encourages him. If he uses chemical weapons (and he might as he gets more and more desperate) I’m fearful that Biden will find an excuse not to respond. It’s the pattern Biden has exhibited over and over.

      Then what?

    298. Bitterlaw says:

      Phil – If Russian tanks rolled into Paris, some at HHR would say it was not worth confronting Putin and the REAL threat is China.

    299. Phil says:

      It’s hard for me to imagine anyone on here not in favor of confronting Putin if he moved on a NATO country. Fortunately, Putin doesn’t have the military to move on NATO. It would, of course, be suicide. He’d be wiped out. What I worry about is Moldova. A no fly there right now and that country is safe.

      Biden won’t do it. Same old “we can’t provoke Putin” BS that got Ukraine invaded.

    300. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      Putin realized Biden would grovel and do nothing to oppose him. It should also be pointed out that Putin’s seizure of the Ukraine was done while Obama was president.

      “Biden, during a 2012 campaign rally, said “I think it’s fair to say when it comes to Russia, based on only what we know he’s said so far, Governor Romney is mired in a Cold War mindset,” which viewed the world “through a Cold War prism that is totally out of touch with the realities of the 21st Century.”

      Here’s what the New York Times said about Romney’s worldview in 2012: “Mitt Romney still considers Russia to be America’s ‘No. 1 geopolitical foe.’ His comments display either a shocking lack of knowledge about international affairs or just craven politics. Either way, they are reckless and unworthy of a major presidential contender.””

    301. Bitterlaw says:

      Putin now knows that he is free to attack every non-NATO country.

      Ukraine using or threatening to use biological or chemical weapons would turn a good deal of the world against them as they’d be viewed as having nothing to lose by many.

      I doubt Zelensky would be that stoopid. He is very media savvy so I would think he would be dumb to bring that to the table.

      It would be very hard for a united Europe to say they’re ok with a small European nation keeping those weapons in Europe.

      …. according to a new poll released Monday from Quinnipiac University (March 1).

      The survey asked Americans whether they think the steps taken by President Joe Biden’s administration to punish Russia for the conflict have been too tough, not strong enough, or just right. Biden condemned Russia’s attack as “unprovoked and unjustified” while working with European partners to sanction Russia’s financial system.

      Eighty percent of Republicans said the administration’s response hasn’t been tough enough, compared to 44 percent of Democrats who said the same. Most Democrats (47 percent) said the response has been “about right.”

      Those singing for appeasement on this board are out of tune with vast majority of Republicans.

    320. Bitterlaw says:

      “A good deal of the world” is content to let Ukraine be subjugated by Russia with token assistance and useless sanctions. “A good deal of the world” think that allowing Russia to target civilians, slaughter innocents in safety corridors during bogus ceasefires, and attack nuclear plants only merits seizing yachts and more useless sanctions in response.

      #349 – that is from Jussie Smollet hearing.

      My wife just told me about it, she was laughing hysterically about it!

    339. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      “Russia said it could seize the assets of Western companies that have suspended operations in the country.

      Dozens of American, European and Japanese companies from almost every sector of the economy have abandoned joint ventures, factories, stores and offices in the last two weeks in response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and the ensuring sanctions.

      The sanctions have hit most of Russia’s financial sector, including its central bank, trashed the Russian currency and are likely to trigger a sovereign debt default and deep recession. And there may be more to come: US Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen said Thursday that Russia’s economy will be “devastated” as a consequence of existing Western sanctions, “but we … continue to consider further steps we can take.””

      So a country with it’s credit cut-off, with it’s foreign holdings seized (where a significant amount of Russian funds were placed), thinks it has the resources to take over and run foreign businesses. The world’s largest gas station is about to go broke.

    340. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      Finally Biden and his cronies have admitted what the Europeans now also admit. Natural gas is key to a clean energy future:

      “Industry officials have questioned ywhether the Biden administration’s commitment to cleaner fuels would hinder the development of gas-export terminals at a time when Europe wants more Western fuel as a bulwark against Russian aggression. But several times at the CERAWeek by S&P Global energy conference in Houston this week, Washington officials have said gas has a place in the future energy mix.

      That started at the first appearance Monday, when presidential climate adviser John Kerry endorsed gas as an important export to the developing world. FERC Commission Chairman Richard Glick, a Democrat, said on Thursday that such judgments should be on a case-by-case basis, and oftentimes, he said, they will show a benefit for reducing greenhouse-gas emissions.

      “If you are going to export natural gas and it’s going to reduce coal-fired generation in Poland, for instance, that actually is a net-positive,” Mr. Glick said while speaking to reporters. “I’m just going to give you my personal opinion, which is that I think to the extent you’re replacing a dirtier fuel it actually is a positive for climate change.”

    341. NYCmike says:

      “So a country with it’s credit cut-off, with it’s foreign holdings seized (where a significant amount of Russian funds were placed), thinks it has the resources to take over and run foreign businesses. The world’s largest gas station is about to go broke.”

      -Beware unintended consequences.

      Our foundation, when you look at the size of our debt, is decaying. We have a lot more to lose than a lot of other countries.

      “Trump said he had a “very strong conversation” with President Putin while he was in office, and that Putin would not have invaded Ukraine during a Trump administration.

      “And he understood, and I won’t go into the great details of the conversation because nobody has to know that. But I will tell you, it never, ever would have happened if we were if … I was president,” he said.”

      The rumor being spread is Trump told Putin he would nuke Moscow. Given Trump’s reputation, Putin likely would not have wanted to take a chance on testing if Trump was bluffing.

    346. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      From Axios the current state of the peace negotiations:

      “Russia is demanding neutrality for Ukraine, recognition of Crimea as Russian, and recognition of the pro-Moscow separatist territories in eastern Ukraine as independent.

      Zelensky has indicated that Ukraine would be open to discussing neutrality, but is opposed to any agreement that sacrifices the country’s territorial integrity.

      “Ukraine exists in a security vacuum. If a similar system of security guarantees, as envisaged by the NATO charter, would be granted to Ukraine by permanent members of the UN security council, including Russia, also Turkey, we are ready to discuss it,” Kuleba said.

      Between the lines: In a sign of the parallel universes in which the two sides are operating, Lavrov claimed at one point, “We are not planning to attack other countries. We didn’t attack Ukraine in the first place.”

    347. Bitterlaw says:

      By NYC’s logic, we can not discuss the war in Ukraine because Biden won’t do what he should do. Based on that logic, we also can not discuss any legislation in Congress because Democrats control the House and Senate. We al can not discuss the Supreme Court because they are appointed for life and we have no control over them.

      That leaves…ummm…I am expecting rain and snow on Saturday.

    348. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      “Oleksiy Danilov, head of Ukraine’s security council, announced that eight Russian commanders have been fired since the start of the conflict amid heavy losses on the battlefield. Two may have been fired because they were among those killed but we do not know if they were in the number.

      In addition, Putin is said to be enraged with leaders of the FSB security service for handing him intelligence suggesting that Ukraine was weak, contained many neo-Nazi groups, and would give up easily if attacked as they had in the Crimea. In addition, some in the FSB are said to have leaked information to the Ukrainians.

      Philip Ingram, a former British intelligence officer, said that Putin is obviously ‘very angry’ and is blaming his intelligence agencies and generals.

      “He blames them for seeding him the advice that led to the poor decision-making in Ukraine,’ he said”

      Reagan also quotes his father as being a liberal Democrat through the 1940s.

      I think Reagan doesn’t realize he may be tarnishing his dad’s image here.

      Tha being said, I’ve always felt bad for Michael Reagan. He’s like the Cinderella who never got her Prince.

      He has always carried the torch for his dad but always appeared less appreciated, at least by Nancy publicly – perhaps because he was adopted via Reagan’s 1st marriage.

      His life seems to be centered around his dad’s legacy, as if he’s always trying to show his loyalty and appreciation and yearning for more acceptance.

      At least publicly, it always appeared Ron Jr. was the beloved favorite child even though he is as far removed from his father as can be in terms of ideology and values.

      Breaking:

      BIDEN: One of the greatest threats we face right now is sea level rise due to climate change. Today I am introducing a 280 billion dollar program that we will spend with our partners in Mali and Algeria, to create a massive basin across the borders of these two African nations. By 2025 we will begin pumping trillions of gallons of sea water into this reservoir to compensate for past Republican administrations failing to act on climate change.

    385. Bitterlaw says:

      Because pumping all that saltwater on land would have no environmental impact…..and it would not evaporate and come back as rain that flows into the sea….

    386. Wes says:

      Blaming the Great Depression on Hoover and the ’08 recession on Bush was easy for Roosevelt and Obama respectively because the Presidents the Democrats savaged for the economic downturns were in office during the inception of the respective events.

      When Trump was President, soaring inflation and gas prices weren’t the norm. That’s why even with the aid of his media lackeys, Biden can’t shift the blame to Trump and Republicans. Indeed, Biden’s policies of reduced domestic energy production and New Deal- and Great Society-lite massive federal spending have been a clear catalyst for current economic woes. People are tuning Biden and his people out not only because of the attempted blame shifting but also because Democrats along with their media allies are speaking condescendingly to people and expecting middle-class voters to meekly accept the current state of things.

      People don’t appreciate elitist condescension and react negatively to things that affect them personally. That’s something the Democrats fail to understand.

      It’s also why November won’t be pretty for the party in power.

      Elitist suburban working class hating Rs hardest hit.

      This was written by Ruy Teixeira, a Dem strategist who wrote “The Emerging Democratic Majority”.

      Of course, the Dems don’t have to worry too much, the GOP elitists are enamored with the “win back the suburbs” and have little interest in the working class.

      “Republicans have increasingly been talking about becoming the party of the multiracial working class. This is less far-fetched than you might think. After all, in a loose sense they already are. In the 2020 election, Trump carried the overall working class (noncollege) vote by 4 points (Catalist two party vote), about the same margin he had in 2016. The same data source also shows Republicans carrying the working class Congressional vote in three of the last four elections (the exception was 2018 when the working class vote was split down the middle between Republicans and Democrats).

      Democrats have generally comforted themselves that their poor performance among the working class was purely a matter of white working class voters, who they presumed were motivated by retrograde racial and cultural attitudes. But since 2012, nonwhite working class voters have shifted away from the Democrats by 18 margin points, with a particularly sharp shift in the last election and particularly among Hispanics. This gives Democrats’ nonchalance about their losing record among working class voters a bit of a whistling past the graveyard quality.

      Data since the 2020 election confirm a pattern of declining Democratic support among the nonwhite working class. Put another way: education polarization, it’s not just for white voters anymore. As a result, Democratic strength among the multiracial working class continues to weaken.”

      Cow had a dream last night.
      *********************************************
      Dreamed Biden went to the U.N., outlined facts of Putin’s illegal invasion of Ukraine, all Putin’s violation of Geneva convention war crimes things.

      Then Biden said:

      “The overriding point is that Putin, without provocation, attacked a neighboring country, invaded and started a major war.”

      “Putin actions are against international law and against what the U.N. stands for and against common human decency. Then Putin uses outlawed cluster bombs, and outlawed vacuum bombs on civilians in Ukrainian cities and has laid siege to those cities and continues to indiscriminately shell and kill civilians. And Putin orders the indiscriminate bombing of hospitals, apartment buildings and other civilian areas. Then Putin refuses pleas to establish humanitarian corridors to allow civilians to escape from the war zone.”

      “If China would have–without provocation–invaded Russia and done the same things to Russia that Russia is doing to Ukraine, the U.S. would feel compelled to get involved and help the Russian people facing such chaos–even though the U.S. has no treaty with Russia to provide for mutual defense.”

      “While the U.S. has no mutual defense treaty with Ukraine, we have a moral obligation to get involved when one nation invades another and commits war crimes while doing so.”

      “I am here to announce that the U.S. is immediately taking the following steps:”

      “1. establishing a no-fly zone over Ukraine airspace of any planes or missiles from Russia or Russian allies.”

      “2. sending in 29 MIG planes from Poland to be used by the Ukrainian air force in defense of their country.”

      “3. ordering an immediate cease fire and withdrawal from Ukraine by the invading Russian forces.”

      “4. if any firing is done by invading Russian troops, U.S. cruise missiles and other assets will destroy those units inside Ukraine.”

      “Mr. Putin started this war–this mayhem, and either he ends it now by withdrawing all his forces immediately, or else the U.S. and the rest of the world will stop this unprovoked and illegal invasion of Ukraine and the resulting crimes against civilians and against humanity.”

      “I urge the rest of the U.N. countries to join in this effort to stop the brutal insanity begun by Putin in Ukraine. Each of you nations could tomorrow find yourself in the same predicament that Ukraine suddenly found itself just a few weeks ago–and wondering from where YOUR help is going to come. Well, I am telling you that help for Ukraine is here. Stopping the invasion of Ukraine now will prevent future invasions of other countries tomorrow.”

      “Let’s roll.”

      The Spring thaw is coming and mud will become a factor:

      “That Putin launched the offensive regardless of those dangers could support the analysis by several Western experts that the Russian president underestimated Ukraine’s resistance, and overestimated his own army’s capacities.

      Either way, the mud is fast turning into one of Ukraine’s major assets as it fights the Russian invasion, along with Western supplies of anti-tank Javelin missiles, ground-to-air Stinger missiles and Ukraine’s own astute use of social media, according to Jason Lyle, a professor in government at Dartmouth College in the US.

      Tucker has become such a Putin Stooge that he is featured nightly on Russian TV as a strong supporter of their “cause”. They have had him on with subtitles at least 4 times in the last week.

      “Democrats in Washington have told you it’s your patriotic duty to hate Vladimir Putin. It’s not a suggestion. It’s a mandate. Anything less than hatred for Putin is treason. Many Americans have obeyed this directive. They now dutifully hate Vladimir Putin. Maybe you’re one of them. Hating Putin has become the central purpose of America’s foreign policy. It’s the main thing that we talk about. Entire cable channels are now devoted to it. Very soon, that hatred of Vladimir Putin could bring the United States into a conflict in Eastern Europe.”

      Carlson’s comments were so welcome in Moscow that an excerpt from that rant with Russian subtitles was quickly produced by the Russian-language service of RT, the government-funded network formerly known as Russia Today.”

      and this gem, I am glad NYC understands we CAN play the tapes back.

      “As he continues to search for a scapegoat in his bungled commentary on the situation between Russia and Ukraine, Fox News host Tucker Carlson is now blaming the U.S. for the war Russian President Vladimir Putin unleashed on his neighbor.

      “Message: Up yours, Vladimir Putin, go ahead and invade Ukraine,” Carlson continued. “And, of course, Vladimir Putin did that just days later. So the invasion was no surprise to the Biden administration. They knew that would happen. That was the point of the exercise.”

      So Tucker is actually saying the US wanted Russia to invade the Ukraine, that Putin invaded because somehow Kamala “invited him”.

      Note to Tucker moron, mouthpiece of Russian propaganda. Yeah, we SHOULD hate what Putin is doing in the Ukraine.

      He has always been consistent though me thinks. Very intelligent, articulate, and quick to respond, often with humorous mocking condescension.

      I may not always agree with him but I don’t always agree with anyone, except myself of course, because I am an EXPERT in all things except all things gay to which I defer to LisaB.

      If there is one piece of advice I would give Tucker, it would be to go back to wearing bow ties. It makes him even more obnoxiously annoying and that drives the left crazy and raises their blood pressure…and anyone that raises the blood pressure on the left is fine by me.

      452. Tina

      Agreed! Ukraine is as corrupt as they come.

      Zelenskyy was partly elected as life imitating art. He became famous in a TV show about a commoner who became president to fight corruption.

      In real life, he later got busted along with his cronies and relationships with oligarchs for creating offshore shell companies to hide holdings and avoid taxation, a common practice in Ukraine and Russian and its ex-territories, among the corrupt and oligarchs.

      He has been closely financially aligned for years with one corrupt oligarch who was targeted by the gubbermint for massive bank fraud and destabilization that led to depositors losing their money, and who then fled Ukraine for fear of prosecution but then came back when Zelenskyy was elected and seems to have escaped further justice to date.

      He has filled gubbermint positions with his inexperienced friends from his entertainment production company and relations, including head of security.

      He hired friends into gubbernint and they fired many of the experienced people previously put in place in recent years in efforts to fight corruption.

      He slowed down, stalled, and weakened the passage of laws designed to fight corruption that were previously in the works before he was elected. He has been criticized for not doing enough as promised against the extremely corrupt judicial system that allow many of the oligarchs to get away with corruption and fraud.

      He transferred his financial holdings to his close friend and confidante who created more offshore shell companies and apparently funneled money back to his wife through sone other companies as dividends, after pretending publicly he distanced himself from his holdings after being elected.

      He got caught using gubbermint funds to take secret trips and tried to hide who he was meeting with outside the country.

      He is not worse than his predecessors who also ran on platforms to clean up the corruption but he is typical of what came out of the Russian territories as false prophets. He appears to be just as corrupt or aware of it in his ranks, as his predecessors despite using his previous popularity and media savvy to mislead folks.

      His gubbermint has been heavy-handed and accused of acting
      Ike thugs in dealing with those it views as threats.

      His people recently executed one of their own for claims of being a spy without any legal process or proof shared to his spying.

      Prior to the Russian invasion, he was viewed as a dupe in over his head and was lagging in the polls after a couple of years of leadership as people lost faith in him and European journalist were reporting on him and his cronies in corrupt gubbermint.

      An international consortium of journalists have followed the money trail and investigated many world leaders hiding holdings in offshore shell companies and that’s how he and his oligarch friends got busted, back in, I believe it was 2020. His offshore surreptitious holdings go back to 2012, long before he was elected and got into politics, when he was an entertainer and his production company was financially aligned with at least one known corrupt oligarch.

      All this was news reported by various international journalists way before the Russian aggression and invasion so it’s not recent stories planted by Russia.

      Zelenskyy may be a hero to his country by standing up against a tyrant, but he appears to also be a corrupt leader, as his predecessors.

      Both can be true!

But Putin has the visuals he wanted. Today, the flag of the Soviet Union once again adorns tanks rolling into Europe, and the 1945 victory banner flies over Ukraine. The sound of dissent arising from the streets is muted amid the terrified screams of the brutalized and oppressed. The market has been tamed, and the Russian people have been rendered placid and governable once more. This is the “greatness” Russians supposedly longed for. Now they have it.”

      The idiot Reagan sycophants giving him worthless partisan awards and casting him to be like Reagan are stoopid. Reagan fought against evil tyrants but he also was not corrupt and lining his pockets during his presidency which is how evil tyrants usually get to expand and keep power.

      I am glad Zelenskyy is standing up against Pootin and hope with the help of the west, he prevails but we need to be very weary of him.

      He reminds me more of Stalin before and during WW2 than Reagan, someone we viewed as corrupt and ultimately not trustworthy but someone we aligned with to fight the evil Germans because at the time we had a common goal and he was less of an enemy to worry about.

      I am not saying Zelenskyy will become an evil dictator like Stalin but he appears corrupt and we should not trust him or prop him up as we may later regret that as we have with so many dictators we aligned ourselves with historically at a point in time.

      Likewise Truman rose out of the political swamp and surprised people.

      Truman was a left-wing demagogue who mercilessly smeared the 80th Congress as “do-nothing” despite their being the single most productive Congress during his presidency, lied outright to his supporters–particularly the unions–to win reelection, and mishandled Korea.

      He made the decision to drop Little Boy and Fat Man and, unlike later Dem Presidents such as Obama and Biden, actually didn’t blame everyone else for anything wrong during his presidency. Aside from those last two things, he was just a petty partisan hack whose primary accomplishment during his presidency came about because of his predecessor’s heavy lifting.

      What surprises me most about Truman is that Republicans were stupid enough to effectively giftwrap him both the presidency and Congress in 1948 by nominating a lazy campaigner who not only spent little time on the campaign trail but also encouraged his supporters to stay home and listen to the results rather than vote.

      Needless to say, I’m not very impressed with Truman.

    474. Tgca says:

      As usual, Jadon calls BS to anything he disagrees with and questions other’s loyalty to freedom and democracy which is just a distraction like when the libs call others RACIST all the time.

      I will no longer let Jadon question my loyalty to freedom and democracy just because we have differing views on tactics to address the Ukraine issue.

      He is copying the Dems book with screams of RACISM by replacing it with ISOLATIONISM rants.

      Well, I question Jadon’s loyalty to freedom and democracy as well, coming second to blind allegiance to goals without consideration for the long- term outcomes to the US.

      I think Jadon was indoctrinated while serving the gubbermint and programmed to believe what they tell him as it relates to leaders and the military must always be followed at any course. That may be fine if you’re serving in the military but it’s not fine for civilians. We often see this with ex-military people believing the US military policy is ALWAYS correct and can do no wrong.

      We need to be skeptical and question and keep in check military and foreign policy from forays that may lead us to unintended consequences just like we try to keep in check the gubbermint with three branches.

      I don’t question anyone’s loyalty to their beliefs for freedom and democracy unless they clearly give a reason to do so I don’t like mine questioned either.

      I do question those that follow blindly and always excuse the US or the military or leaders that involve us in long-term situations that may not work for us in the long run.

      When I think of this blind allegiance, I think of a few such examples as McCain who got caught in corruption early in his career and was saved by the GOP simply because he was a war hero.

      Think Iran-contra! Think Oliver North! Think Caspar Weinberger! All broke US laws for their desires to push an agenda but Jadon has supported them all in the past when they all should have served some time in prison.

      Think Iraq War 2 which most of the world acknowledges was a mistake in hindsight that resulted in probably at least a million people ultimately dying because some US president misled the nation, duped or not, just to make his daddy proud.

      In my view, Jadon will always be the good soldier and do as he is told to believe blindly in contrast to some others who look beyond loyalty of leaders and the flag to see where real problems exist in the world.

      I think there is good concern to be alarmed about Zelenskyy and I’ve read about how his and his predecessors’ corrupt gubbermint for a few years way before the Russian aggression and invasion so blaming European journalists is just another “keep your head down and take orders and don’t think for yourself ” mentality.

      America is not always correct and has made bad choices in the past that has also led to much death and carnage so it is quite AMERICAN to question it’s leaders and military. We can still be proud of America by accepting both its successes and failures.

      There is a difference between supporting freedom and democracy and following blindly what your country expects, and anyone who questions that difference is a hypocrite to call themselves a patriotic American.

      Agreed!

      I read two in-depth biographies on Truman years ago and learned a great deal about him. He is often put on a pedestal to be this tough direct “buck stops with me” leader and nothing could be further from the truth. The majority of his career was being part of a political machine where he was told what office to run for and how to vote. He answered to party leaders.

      It’s very easy once you’re in charge to call the shots but that’s not how Truman career was built. Other than dropping the bombs in WW2, I think Truman had no major accomplishments or vision carried out.

      Truman reminds me in many ways of JFK, where there is more myth than fact to the legend and that is misleading.

      For example, though I don’t agree with all of Reagan’s policies, I think he was much more instrumental to the US than JFK but you would not know that with the adulation of JFK to this day who probably has more places named after him only after Washington, Lincoln, and Jefferson…maybe Roosevelt too.

      I agree that jason’s only response is often simplistic pejorative attacks on people who disagree with his nostrums.
      All military conflicts are different, just as terrain and circumstances always differ.
      The only limitation I’ve put on opposition to Putin on Ukraine is direct US military involvement, not least ,among other reasons, disagreements because it’s literally impossible without Nato support for logistical and basing reasons alone. And there is no Nato support for military involvement. Case closed.
      But we should have a forum where people can have different opinions without personal attacks, and that includes me. But I believe any by me have been in response to personal attacks on me, including claims I’ve lied about my credentials.
      Not ONE single time has that be true. Ever.
      Jason also seems to believe the world is still 1945, or late 1980’s, when US military, economic, and political power was unquestionably supreme. The reality is that that is not true now, and our relative position is weaker than before, and we have to make choices for intervention more carefully, as we are operating on limits that didn’t exist before, not least on the home front.

      I never said ALL military. The implication was related to the ones who like to beat the war drums at every conflict that arises where America has to take charge or go it alone.

      I agree there are many in our country who do not understand or care that the world has changed. America is no longer the superpower with influence it once was and that was inevitable with the increasing technology and the world in essence becoming a smaller place.

      There are people still stuck in the past thinking America will be viewed as a savior or beacon of hope in spreading democracy throughout the world. Those days are long gone and I’m not sure they’ll return soon.

      I guarantee you if America were to single-handedly disavow Europes approach and go it alone and there was a spillover of war into Europe, a significant if not the majority of Europeans and most of the world would blame America for arrogance and causing the war to expand.

    491. jason says:

      I am beginning to think Putin’s miscalculation has less to do with his military than the Ukraine’s.

      He probably had enough troops and equipment, no matter if some poorly trained or some equipment not well maintained, to decapitate the Ukrainian govt and occupy Kiev IF the Ukrainian military had disbanded or fallen apart or surrendered as planned.

      I think his generals gave him an assessment that the Ukrainian army would fold quickly and the air force would be destroyed. Probably they figured the Ukrainians, like everyone else, would be surprised by the magnitude, speed, and ferocity of the initial attack.

      I read an assessment today that of the 90 combat planes in the Ukrainian air force, 56 are still operational, so the Russians only succeeded in taking out about 40% of the planes.

      Most Americans could not find Ukraine on a map or even know what continent it is in or know anything of its politics until what they were recently told by their leaders and the MSM.

      Most Americans will think highly and sympathize with any country that was invaded because that’s built into our psyche.

      Putin responding any way would be suicide. He knows it. We’ve seen his military. A willingness to extend a no fly zone over Moldova also conveys a not so subtle message to China regarding our resolve. Gives them something more to think about with regards to Taiwan.

      What he’s saying: “The problem with Putin is he’s got a very big ego,” Trump told Fox News host Sean Hannity.

      “If he ends now, it’s going to look like a big loss for him, even if he takes a little extra territory. … I got along with these people. I got along with them well. That doesn’t mean they are good people,” Trump continued.
      “It doesn’t mean anything other than the fact that I understood them and perhaps they understood me. Maybe they understood me even better, that’s OK, because they knew there’d be a big penalty,” added Trump — who maintained the invasion would never have happened if he were still president.”

      “A “gay propaganda” law passed in Russia in 2013 made it illegal to promote gay rights and has been used to jail activists and shut down LGBTQ support groups. And during a series of anti-gay purges in Russia’s Muslim-majority Chechen Republic, in which officials kidnapped, tortured and in some cases killed men suspected of having sex with other men, the Kremlin turned a blind eye.

      At the same time, life for LGBTQ people in Ukraine has slowly been improving.”

    555. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      Maybe we should try a test run of this law so certain posters can see what living under Putin is like:

      “The implementation of the “gay propaganda” law has resulted in an increase in anti- LGBT+ violence and restrictions on LGBT+ projects and initiatives—from a ban on Pride events to the inability of LGBT+ organizations to register in the country. Further repression has occurred this year, including prosecutors’ demands to ban journalists from publishing articles discussing “nontraditional” sexual relations. Russian prosecutors have repeatedly filed lawsuits with Roskomnadzor, the federal executive body responsible for overseeing the media, demanding the blocking of local LGBT+ organizations’ websites”

      No one denies Russia and many of its old territories still treat gays horribly but certainly no worse than many of our allies or those we work with in the Middle East, Asia, and South America.

      I’m highly critical of your views after you embraced fascist ideology to deny people basic human rights because they’re not vaccinated or refuse to do so simply because it makes others uncomfortable.

      I hold you to a higher standard because you should know better than the breeders here based on discrimination gays have experienced because they may or may not be infected with a virus people feared in the 80s and 90s.

      I find that so offensive! I don’t expect the breeders here to understand that but you as a gay man should, and that is why I believe if we can deny people service because they may or may not carry COVID that others fear, then it should be equally just to deny gays services because they may or may not carry the HIV virus and people have a right to decide whether they want to be around people with the deadly HIV virus as well.

      “People around the world are using a new website to circumvent the Kremlin’s propaganda machine by sending individual messages about the war in Ukraine to random people in Russia.

      The website was developed by a group of Polish programmers who obtained some 20 million cellphone numbers and close to 140 million email addresses owned by Russian individuals and companies. The site randomly generates numbers and addresses from those databases and allows anyone anywhere in the world to message them, with the option of using a pre-drafted message in Russian that calls on people to bypass President Vladimir Putin’s censorship of the media.”

      So far we have, but not limited to:

      1) Putin is VERY powerful militarily, he would “kick our butts”.
      2) Putin is VERY weak militarily, he poses no threat so why worry
      3) Putin has nukes, so his aggression has to passively accepted
      4) Russians and Ukrainians are one people, and thus should be made to live ever happily as Putin determines
      5) Zelensky = Stalin, so the Ukrainians deserve to be slaughtered for electing him
      6) Putin is just up to a little mischief, move on
      7) Ukraine is far away, we have our own border to worry about, let sleeping dogs lie.
      8) We should do something, but Biden is President, so we should do nothing. Maybe when we get a better President, we can do something.

      I am sure I missed some excuses, but no matter, the Appease Putin Brigade will come up with new ones.

      There is no disagreement as to the US supporting the Ukrainians. There is disagreement on how to best support that effort.

      Jadon and a few here effectively wants the US to take the lead and go to war with Russia over Ukraine and work for Zelenskyy. They‘re ok with Americans dying before Europe or NATO lifts a finger.

      The rest of us want a different approach and want NATO or the Europeans to stand up 1st and show they are committed to addressing aggression in their own backyard before the US commits to war. We are also cautious about propping up another corrupt leader like we’ve done in the past whereas Jadon and company are ok with aligning with corrupt leaders and fighting for them.

      Jadon claims he can read between the lines and thinks many here are appeasers because they don’t agree with his warmongering approach.

      Well, I read between the lines and think Jadon wants Amerika to go it alone and start war with Russia so he can relive the good old 80s. He wants to put Americans into harms way before the Europeans and NATO commit to it.

      That’s the difference!

      I’m sure Dr. Fow-chee would call this the most important threat to our nation and national security at this time so he needs to back to doing daily rounds on TV in favor of that damn Zelenskyy hogging all the airtime.

      Dr. Fow-chee, a soon to be medal awardee for great service to his nation, should get TV access over Zelenskyy, a corrupt foreign leader that wants to drag us into a war and work against GOP candidates and award the Biden clan financially.

      Jadon claimed he was a fan of Dr. Fow-chee and that Dr. Fow-chee did not have to do this and did it out of a sense of duty. CRAP!!! He did it for fame and fortune and to stay relevant.

      Just like Jadon thought Cuomo was trying to do the right thing, which I guess means lying and giving preference to friends and family for benefiting from the COVID pandemic, Jadon was duped by Dr. Fow-chee.

      The point made has nothing to do with Trump’s decision. That is Jadon walking back his misjudgment by trying to push “what aboutism” by saying “well, Trump was for it too so that excuses my misjudgment.”

      Trump realized he made a mistake with Dr. Fow-chee. Trump wanted to dump Dr. Fow-chee after approximate 6 months but was threatened with investigations by both the GOP and Dems warning of such just before an election so he was stuck with him. The rumor mill was Dr. Fow-chee would be toast after the 2020 election.

    631. Tgca says:

      Ha! Ha!

      Jadon relies on a Tucker comment from 3 years ago taken out of context of the larger discussion with a Clinton advisor about impeachment of Trump over a Ukraine phone conversation where the advisor tried to tell Tucker that our democracy hinges on conflict in Ukraine.

      REALLY? A border war over Russia pro-separatists was threatening US democracy in 2019?

      The discussion had nothing to do with the invasion of Ukraine by Russia but instead about why the US should get involved in border wars or more accurately, a Ukraine civil war with break away regions supported by Russia when there are bigger issues like China aggression and Dems trying to impeach Trump over nonsense.

      Again, this conversation had ABSOLUTELY nothing to do with Russia going in and taking over Ukraine. It was about border wars due to pro-Russian separatists in Ukraine fighting Ukraine, in other words, a civil war in Ukraine.

      Jadon just searching the internet for sound bites to justify his misunderstanding of Tucker’s points.

      Tucker also said why should he care about border fights with Russia and Latvia and Moldova too. That boosters his argument about whether we should get involved in border fighting with Russia with its old territories over pro-Russian regions in those territories.

      The US getting into all these conflicts will more than likely escalate them as Russia is not going to stand down and be seen as weak.

      We should only get militarily involved when they cross a certain line, like the Ukraine invasion by Russia. Otherwise, it is not our job to get involved in every border fight or civil war.

      This is absurd and I never said that. I have been very clear since before the invasion that the US and NATO SHOULD be hitting Russia hard – missile strikes on Russian forces, NFZ, granting NATO status to Ukraine. The fact that Biden is an incompetent moron does not change anything that SHOULD be done. Unfortunately, Biden won’t do it but I have not backed down from what SHOULD be done.

    638. Tgca says:

      Ok. Just like we have propaganda from Russia, as expected, we have propaganda from Ukraine.

      Zelenskyy says in speech to Europe:

      “If we fall, you will fall,” he said. There’s also a video out there showing attacks on Paris to make this point.

      Nice try Zelenskyy but we’re not falling for your propaganda either.

      Russia is much weaker today than yesteryear and Europe is not going to fall to Russia simply because Ukraine falls if this crisis is not resolved soon.

      Hogwash!

      Again. I don’t trust Zelenskyy who wants us to enter his war with Russia which would ultimately cause more destabilization around the world if NATO or the US directly attacks Russia.

      Ukraine should take the deal of giving up the pro-Russian territories who don’t want to be part of Ukraine anyway to stop that current fighting that began all this conflict going back years, and Russia should accept there will be no further aggression and mind it’s business how Ukraine manages its country.

      I think I this would actually be a way out for Pootin who has been embarrassed to date. He can then claim he’s achieved what he wanted to which is to protect the pro-Russian areas and then he can exit this war gracefully without further humiliation, even though it’s hogwash but unfortunately, that’s how diplomacy works.

      If Ukraine is refusing to give up territories that it is already at civil war with and that has no end in sight with or without Russian intervention and aggression, we should make clear to Ukraine, then you’re on your own. We cannot be a puppet to either Ukraine or Russia. There has to be common ground found.

      We cannot have larger scale war in Europe because Ukraine won’t accept the inevitable that it will ultimately lead to more fighting and war in decades to come if it can’t resolve the issues with pro-Russian territories.

      Fair is fair!

    640. Phil says:

      No doubt Ukraine would welcome a wider war in Europe. The more countries drawn in the better for them.

    641. Tgca says:

      Missile strikes on Russian forces is an act of war just like missile strikes by Russia on American forces on behalf of Iraq wars would have been a declaration of war on the US.

      It doesn’t matter if the deed is just or not. The act of an attack on a country’s military during a conflict with another country in essence declares war on them.

      That would further escalate and could destabilize Europe and bring on a European war faster that would then spread elsewhere.

      China and Iran will ultimately side with Russia and could also destabilize other world regions.

      I think we need strong leadership to step in and call Russia’s bluff and offer them the Ukrainian pro-Russian territories who have already deemed themselves not part of Ukraine or never will be. There will NEVER be peace in Ukraine if they are trying to force pro-Russian territories to live under their rule.

      If Russia says no to such an offer then we know we have a bigger problem and NATO, not the US, should decide next steps and ante it up with Russia and see how they respond.

      No one in the US or Europe is seriously calling for attacks on Russian military. There is absolutely NO wide support for that whatsoever at this time.

    642. Tgca says:

      663

      Exactly!

      That’s why I distrust Zelenskyy. He will use the US as a pawn to further his ambitions.

      I agree we have to find a way to resolve this but directly confronting or attacking Russian forces is the worst way when there has not even been any serious attempt at diplomacy yet.

      I strongly believe Russia realizes it bit off more than it could chew with world backlash so I would bet they would want to find a way out to save face, and giving the pro-Russian territories autonomy or making it part of Russia is one way for Russia to exit gracefully.

      ZZZZZZZZ.

Got it. Keep finding excuses to let Putin do what he wants.

    646. Tgca says:

      668

      These are not excuses!

      I’m just pointing out that a direct assault on Russian troops would be viewed as an act of war.

      Pretty much EVERY European nation, as well as the US gubbermint acknowledges that would escalate and cause a direct military conflict with Russia.

      I don’t think Ukraine is worth the US attacking Russian forces directly at this time.

      Europe has to poop or get off the pot. They need to decide if they wish to end this conflict by attacking Russian military when they won’t even entertain a NFZ or try diplomacy or do nothing that really matters, with the latter being their current approach.

      If America goes it alone, I could see many nations in Europe turning against the US as an arrogant warmonger because the Europeans would be the 1st to suffer in such a conflict and potentially have their cities targeted while Americans go about their business all protected 3,000+ miles away unless Russia decided to directly attack the US, highly unlikely, except for maybe bombing Sara Palin’s house in Alaska.

      The Soviet Bloc “captive nations” in eastern Europe gained their independence in 1981. That was 30 years ago. Most of them joined NATO, and are now under the U.S./NATO nuclear umbrella. They also have NATO military bases on their territory.

      For whatever reasons, Ukraine chose not to join NATO when the others did.

      That colors my view of the risks the U.S. is now being asked to accept on Ukraine’s behalf. Ukraine obviously has had a different risk calculus, & a different perception of its national interest, than Bulgaria and Lithuania.

    669. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      First it was Afghanistan, than the Ukraine, and now Iran is taking advantage of Biden’s weakness:

      “Iran is watching closely what happens in Russia and Ukraine in this regard. While the US has warned Russia of a tough response about the invasion, the White House also puts out messaging about not wanting any conflict with Russia.

      Russia now has said it will target supplies of arms going into Ukraine. Russia is testing the West’s resolve. The US may be backing down.

      Meanwhile, Iran sees that the US wants the Iran deal back, and Tehran wants to squeeze Washington to come to terms. This means Iran is using the Ukraine crisis but also browbeating Russia regarding the Iran deal and using the threat of more deadly attacks to try to get something from the US and see if the US will back down or retaliate.

      Iran has also read the reports in US media regarding the skeptics who oppose escalation in Ukraine – the ones who argue that “the West is to blame” and that “NATO provoked Russia.” Iran knows that some of these voices are also against conflict with Iran.

      For instance, Iran can read The New Yorker, where US academic John Mearsheimer is quoted. The headline of the article blames the US and the West for the crisis in Ukraine. The Economist also ran an article headlined, “John Mearsheimer on why the West is principally responsible for the Ukrainian crisis.”

      In 2008, Foreign Affairs and PBS highlighted another theory by the same academic: “John Mearsheimer, political science professor at the University of Chicago, says a nuclear-armed Iran would bring stability to the region, but Dov Zakheim, former Pentagon official now with the Center for Naval Analyses, says it would trigger an arms race.””

    670. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      Lets not forget that when the Iranians made an attack on Americans in Iraq, Trump took out General Soleimami, and act that horrified the appeasement crowd on this board:

      “Former President Donald Trump claimed on Saturday during his rally in South Carolina that his personality kept the U.S. “out of war” and warned that Russian President Vladimir Putin will not stop his attacks on Ukraine.

      “The fake news said my personality is going to get us into a war…but actually my personality is what kept us out of war,” he said, adding, that the invasion of Ukraine could lead to World War III. “I see what’s happening, because if you think Putin’s going to stop, it’s going to get worse and worse. He’s not going to accept it, and we don’t have anybody to talk to him. You had somebody to talk to him with me.”

      The former president noted that he was able to deal with Russia when he was in office as “nobody was ever tougher on Russia” than him.”

    671. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      If Trump was still president, Putin would not have dared attack the Ukraine. Trump is incapable of appeasement:

      “Former President Donald Trump was recorded on speaker phone claiming to pal and golf pro John Daly that he once warned Russia President Vladimir Putin that he’d bomb Moscow if Putin invaded Ukraine.

      It was a startling statement, given that Trump just recently praised Putin as a “genius” for invading Ukraine, where the Russian military is attacking a sovereign nation and dropping bombs on civilians.

      “They’re all saying, ‘Oh, he’s a nuclear power. It’s like they’re afraid of him,’” Trump told Daly, referring to Putin, in the call posted on Instagram Friday.

      “You know, he was a friend of mine,” Trump preened. “I got along great with him.”

      But Trump insisted on the call that he also played tough with his buddy. If Putin invaded Ukraine, Trump claimed he warned him: “We’re gonna hit Moscow.” And “he sort of believed me, like 5%, 10%,” Trump added. “That’s all you need. He never did it during my time, John, you know … He didn’t do this during the last four years because he knew he couldn’t,” Trump added.”

      Meanwhile, NATO, Sweden & Finland will be having joint military manuevers during the next month. U.S. Marines have often been stationed in Finland often over the last several years:

      “An exercise under the leadership of the Norwegian Armed Forces in winter conditions, Cold Response 2022 will involve up to about 30,000 troops in total from a number of participating countries.
      The exercise will be organised in Southern, Central and Northern Norway from 14 March to 1 April 2022.
      The exercise organisation will comprise the Norwegian Armed Forces, partner countries such as Finland and Sweden, as well as Nato member nations. The US, the UK, France, Germany, and the Netherlands will account for the largest part of the training audience forces.”

      Now for some news that really matters to Americans.

      Let’s see if Jadon, Dr. Fow-Chee’s fan will agree or not.

      Rep. Rand Paul, R-Ky., …will introduce an amendment to eliminate Dr. Anthony Fauci’s position as director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases … propose dividing the NIAID director’s power into three separate new institutes, each led by a director who is appointed by the president and confirmed by the Senate for a five-year term.

      The congressman said his motivation to act resulted not just from many Americans dying from COVID, but also due to people lost “to the crushing and overbearing lockdowns and mandates that were based on junk science.”

      With aggressive energy production, the U.S. could supply Europe with natural gas. Leave NordStream closed. When fully built out, the U.S. will have 12 LNG terminals. There is such and opportunity here, but Biden’s wacky green agenda likely won’t permit it.

      “This winter, U.S. LNG exports to Europe shattered existing records. Exports of LNG from the United States to the European Union (EU) and the United Kingdom (UK) nearly doubled from November 2021 to January 2022, hitting 6.5 Bcf/d—the most LNG shipped to Europe from the United States on a monthly basis to date. And in February of this year, Europe received nearly 70% of all exported U.S. LNG cargoes.”

    692. jason says:

      Fine with me.

      I agreed with the initial 2 week lockdown Trump proposed to “flatten the curve” based on the information at the time.

      After that I opposed all lockdowns and mask and vaccination mandates and the fascist practices of private businesses.

      Of course, Paul is grandstanding, he knows he has as much chance as a fart in a hurricane of getting the Dems and Biden to sign off on it.

      But IF Rs regain power to do it, sounds reasonable to me.

    693. jason says:

      With aggressive energy production, the U.S. could supply Europe with natural gas.”

      Not going to happen, Biden doesn’t believe in “aggressive energy production”.

      “The Soviet Bloc “captive nations” in eastern Europe gained their independence in 1981. That was 30 years ago. Most of them joined NATO, and are now under the U.S./NATO nuclear umbrella. They also have NATO military bases on their territory.

      For whatever reasons, Ukraine chose not to join NATO when the others did.

      That colors my view of the risks the U.S. is now being asked to accept on Ukraine’s behalf. Ukraine obviously has had a different risk calculus, & a different perception of its national interest, than Bulgaria and Lithuania.”

      Ahh, right on cue mnw comes up with a new excuse on why Putin should be allowed to invade Ukraine.

      Ukraine didn’t join NATO 30 years ago, so for that they should have their sovereignty violated, their country destroyed, and their population slaughtered.

      I will add this to the Putin Appeaser list of excuses tomorrow morning.

      “Ukraine hints at progress in Russia ceasefire talks

      As peace talks between Moscow and Kyiv begin this morning, senior Ukrainian officials have been outlining the shape that negotiations are taking.

      Ihor Zhovkva, who is deputy head of office for President Zelensky, told the BBC he believes that Moscow’s position is more constructive now than it had been previously.

      “Instead of giving us an ultimatum or red lines or asking Ukraine to capitulate, they now seem to start the constructive negotiations,” he told Radio 4’s Today.”

      Oh please Jadon. You were pushing for Dr. Fow-chee to get medals and claiming to be his fan.

      Now you’re trying to walk back your adulation because he has lost his appeal to the public, been wrong numerous times, got caught lying, and may be investigated for criminal activity.

      You misrepresent and distort what others say frequently and now you’re doing it to yourself by trying to make it that you were not drooling over him.

      Face it! You bet on the wrong guy. We were correct with regard to being skeptical of him and you were wrong while you claimed to be his fan. Perhaps if you did not naively fall for his crap, you would not be in the awkward spot of walking back your adulation.

      But hey! I get it! That’s what FANS do.

    698. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      720. The Ukraine once had nuclear weapons. They agreed to give them up because the U.S., Europe and other countries guaranteed their security. Those guaranteed turned out to be lies — there is no way to sugar-coat this betrayal:

      “UKRAINE WAS ONCE home to thousands of nuclear weapons. The weapons were stationed there by the Soviet Union and inherited by Ukraine when, at the end of the Cold War, it became independent. It was the third-largest nuclear arsenal on Earth. During an optimistic moment in the early 1990s, Ukraine’s leadership made what today seems like a fateful decision: to disarm the country and abandon those terrifying weapons, in exchange for signed guarantees from the international community ensuring its future security.

      The decision to disarm was portrayed at the time as a means of ensuring Ukraine’s security through agreements with the international community — which was exerting pressure over the issue — rather than through the more economically and politically costly path of maintaining its own nuclear program. Today, with Ukraine being swarmed by heavily armed invading Russian troops bristling with weaponry and little prospect of defense from its erstwhile friends abroad, that decision is looking.”

    699. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      723…that decision is looking like a bad one.”

    700. jason says:

      Zzzzzzz…

      Tgca, who never missed a chance to promote whatever Fauci was saying, is now lying through his teeth about my position.

      First, I always said Fauci was ONLY a member of the task force, and enhancing his role to Covid “guru” or “czar” was a mistake, and I consistently attacked both Tgca and Amoral Scumbag for giving him that status here. But in any case, Trump was responsible for allowing it, so it you want to attack Fauci’s exaggerated role, blame Trump.

      Second, I never supported any of Fauci’s policies, I was always anti-lockdown, anti-mandate. What I did was support the concept of a bi-partisan task force, and I did think Fauci’s appoitment gave the task force legitimacy and credibility.

      So take your lies and GFY.

    701. Tgca says:

      It was wise to disarm Ukraine and not leave NOOKYOOLER weapons with a severely corrupt gubbermint or they probably would have found their way to terrorists for cash and God knows what could have happened.

      The Ukraine once had nuclear weapons. They agreed to give them up because the U.S., Europe and other countries guaranteed their security. Those guaranteed turned out to be lies — there is no way to sugar-coat this betrayal”

      Yep, but the Putin sycophants will ignore that.

    703. jason says:

      severely corrupt gubbermint”

      Zzzzzzz…..

    704. jason says:

      Tgca has to explain that if I was such a Fauci “fan”, why did I consistently oppose his policies?
      Why did I consistently oppose exaggerating his role, and why did I consistently say “Fauci is just another member of the taskforce”? Why did I consistently make the point here that Fauci (under Trump) had ZERO power to implement any policy or mandate, and any of his policies that were adopted or implemented had to be signed off by others, such a Trump and the governors or the CDC.

      Can’t explain it? Didn’t think so.

    705. Tgca says:

      725

      You LIE Jadon!

      You admitted here to all you were a fan of Dr. Fow-chee.

      You advocated for him getting medals.

      I never praised Dr. Fow-chee because very early on I was concerned with his approach and seeking media attention constantly and sucking up to WHO and China.

      You concocted this silly ridiculous argument that by criticizing someone you elevate them. Well, I guess you’ve elevated most Dems you criticize too. A stoopid weak argument that you concocted ONLY after it appeared we were right on Dr. Fow-chee and you were wrong. You had no place to go so you came up with that silly argument hoping to deflect.

      If anyone elevated his status it was you saying you were his FAN and claiming he deserved MEDALS. That is not deniable.

      No one else here gave the adulation you did for the Good Doctor.

      More revisionist history.

      You criticized those that questioned him.

      You claimed you were his fan for Christsakes!

      You advocated for him getting medals.

      The fact that you later backed away from his failed policies, which you NOW contradict yourself and admit he advocated instead of them being Trump’s policies show you continue to try and find ways to wiggle out of your early support of him until you then went silent as he became more and more controversial.

      Trump was wise enough after a few months to see Dr. Fow-chee was doing this for self-promotion and not to benefit the US and should have fired him the fall of 2020, as he wanted to but the GOP along with the Dems threatened consequences before an election.

      Tulsi Gabbard destroys Romney in series of tweets citing gubbermint statements, testimony, and documents pertaining to bio labs in Ukraine that did work on deadly pathogens.

      She calls him out and tells him to resign after he accused her of treason but doesn’t explain just what treasonous act she committed.

      Let’s see how Romney responds.

      I have never agreed with her politics but I have respected her once she stood up to her entire party and called them out on BS a few years back.

      https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2022/03/tulsi-gabbard-calls-mitt-romney-calling-treasonous-liar-destroys/

      Romney has been a fricken joke. He needs to shut his pie hole for once. Treasonous my ass.

    712. Tina says:

      Romney is destroyed. What a take down.

      We note the other warmongers will pile on.

      But at minimum, there are those labs. We know about them.

      We should secure them and make sure no viruses are released.

      Her comments make total sense. I don’t agree with her politics, but she is on point here. And she is an army veteran.

    713. jason says:

      Senator Romney, please provide evidence that what I said is untrue and treasonous. If you cannot, you should do the honorable thing: apologize and resign from the Senate.”

      I do think Tulsi is playing useful idiot for Putin.

      But if she can get Romney to resign, I will recommend her for a medal.

    714. jason says:

      Here is what I think of the ” biolabs” as an excuse to shill for Putin.

      Zzzzzz…..

    715. Phil says:

      I don’t agree with Gabbard’s politics either. Doesn’t matter. Romney throwing around the word treason is BS. Kind of like the left throwing around the word racist. Designed to cut off debate. Period.

    716. jason says:

      The fact that you later backed away from his failed policies, ”

      Later my ass.

      I never supported any lockdowns or mandates.

      But I notice you are still giving Trump a pass for keeping him on as “Covid Guru”.

      “Trump was wise enough after a few months to see Dr. Fow-chee was doing this for self-promotion and not to benefit the US and should have fired him the fall of 2020, as he wanted to but the GOP along with the Dems threatened consequences before an election.”

      LOL. Was wise to him but didn’t fire him? Is that the closest you can get to the “buck stops here”.

      Full disclosure: I did not support firing Fauci because I thought it was politically untenable, but I think Tgca’s hypocrisy is astounding.

      Romney is a cheap media whore, everything he says is designed to ingratiate himself with the MSM. The same MSM that attacked him as a vulture capitalist and attacked his character, his family, and his honor. The worst case of “Stockholm Syndrome” I ever saw. I still think he would have been a better President than Obama, the bar is very low, but I certainly regret all my posts here defending his character.

      I think the biolabs issue is a red herring Tulsi is using to shill for Putin and promote her isolationist views, but it doesn’t make her a traitor, just a good propaganda tool.

    720. Tina says:

      Mitt Romney is a disgusting creep.

      He fired Richard Grendel on his 2012 campaign for being gay,

      No lectures from this arsehole.

      Romney is a cheap media whore.

      Enough said.

    722. jason says:

      You criticized those that questioned him.”

      Tgca is unhinged.

      Show me where I agreed with any of Fauci’s policies.

      I did criticize those that called him a “quack” and those like you and Tina who only opposed him because he was a “Democrat” and a “Hillary supporter”, you lose all credibility right off the bat when you engage in cheap partisan politics. I did mock you for that, deservedly so. I viewed it as moronic then, and still do.

      Fauci was highly qualified and his appointment gave the task force gravitas and credibility. From a narrow role of recommending what would save lives regardless of other consequences I had no problem with Fauci’s role, he has zero power to implement anything and Trump was free to accept or reject his recommendations. Trump allowed him to become Covid Czar by the MSM, and his role and influence became a lot larger than it should have been.

      No revisionist BS and no free lunch.

    723. Tom says:

      I worked on the Romney campaign and am ashamed and disgusted by him these days. I have never been so thoroughly duped by a politician in my life. I will contribute to the campaign of anyone who primaries him.

    724. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      The Ukrainian biolab claim by Putin has already been discredited. No need to repeat it.

      However, I don’t think Gabbard’s comments can be construed as treasonous. Just state the actual facts and move on.

    725. Tgca says:

      I’m gonna show you what a fraud Jadon is on Dr. Fow-chee since he’s distorting what others are saying here, and he’s either outright lying or misremembering due to his dementia from eating bacon.

      Jadon claimed he was a fan of Dr. Fow-chee and that Dr. Fow-chee did not have to do this and did it out of a sense of duty. CRAP!!”

      Zzzzz… I never said I was a “fan” of Fauci.

      I did say he didn’t have to join the task force.

      I stand by that.

      Yes, that was my position on March of 2020, just weeks into the pandemic. I still think he didn’t have to do that, I stated that above.

      I thought by accepting to be on the task force it was very helpful to Trump, giving the task force credibility and gravitas

      But I never supported his policies, either lockdowns or mandates, nor did I support any expanded role for him such as the one you promoted here incessantly.

      GFY.

      Notice how Jadon tries to walk it back after he LIED in 653 saying he NEVER said he was a fan.

    745. Tgca says:

      I was always consistent with my views on Dr. Fow-chee and I can prove it from dated posts early in 2020.

      I never had a problem with Dr. Fow-Chee’s credentials or experience. Early on, I had a problem with him thinking only he was right, his naïveté in reliance on WHO and China for data and facts to make decisions, and his constant attention seeking on par with celebrities.

      The fact that later on he discredited himself by suggesting the science changed when it did not but instead he used faulty assumptions, he misled gubbermint officials and the public to push his own views, he lied to Congress, he engaged in criminal activity by approving and paid funding of illegal research, and he fought with others even when he was obviously in over his head and then tried to say questioning him was questioning science, all prove the concern I and others had very early on was warranted.

      From the evidence I’ve seen to date, Dr. Fow-chee should be charged criminally and prosecuted.

    746. Tgca says:

      Here Jadon goes again with the silly argument that criticizing someone gives them credibility because he’s trying to deflect his adulation of Dr. Fow-chee.

      BIG FAN
      SENSE OF DUTY
      MEDALS

      …any reasonable person would deduce that is admiration and adulation, not criticizing them.

      Face it Jussie!

      E wry one knows it here that you were the one that stood by Dr. Fow-chee side and then came up with your silly deflection by saying if you criticized Dr. Fow-chee, you gave him credibility.

      Russia has 3 million military personnel between active and reserve. 12,000 tanks and 1,000 aircraft.

      You can see how much equipment they have lost here, been updated since yesterday.

      https://www.oryxspioenkop.com/2022/02/attack-on-europe-documenting-equipment.html

      They are not going to “run out” of men or equipment if they are willing to win at any cost.

      …and for the record, it was not only early March, it was after that as well. There are posts in late June and July where you are defending Dr. Fow-chee.

      I came across them in finding your ADULATION posts of the Good Doctor.

    753. jason says:

      I never had a problem with Dr. Fow-Chee’s credentials or experience.”

      Liar.

    754. jason says:

      I consistently defended Fauci’s role, but always with the caveat he was just one more member of the task force and his role was very narrow, I never gave him the pedestal you put him on.

      You blew him up to God like proportions, own it.

    755. jason says:

      If you are honest (fat chance) you will see my posts always said it was up to Trump to consider Fauci’s views along with other views, and set his policies accordingly. I stated that Fauci’s role was to look at things strictly from a life saving viewpoint, without any economic considerations, and it was a mistake to consider his views outside that scope.

      I never supported Fauci’s views in favor of mandatory lockdowns and mandates, much to the contrary, I opposed them strenuously.

    756. Tgca says:

      Yeah! I’m Pootin’s lapdog when I advocated for a more aggressive approach then many including for Europe to step up so we can all go into Ukraine as a united Europe and NATO and push Pootin back to Russia.

      I also advocated for NFZ early on.

      I also advocated early on for cutting Russia off financially including oil purchases from them.

      That sounds like a Pootin stooge all right.

      Keep twisting yourself into a pretzel trying to defend your positions you have been proven wrong on please.

      Okay Jussie!

    757. jason says:

      My views on Fauci involved a little more analysis than Tgca’s sophomoric “he is a Hillary supporter”.

    758. jason says:

      Nah, you don’t get to squirm away from being a Putin stooge.

      You are a clown who called Zelensky “Stalin”, nobody would be happier with that false definition than Putin.

      You never advocated for any “aggressive” approach, you have been appeasing and groveling before Putin from the get go.

    759. jason says:

      I also advocated early on for cutting Russia off financially including oil purchases from them.”

      Wow!

      How “aggressive”.

    760. jason says:

      Cash Cow, that site show the Russians have lost 209 tanks.

      So they have plenty left.

      Now tank crews are another story. You don’t have 12000 tank crews for 12000 tanks. Losing 200 front line tank crews is significant, if they indeed lost that many killed or captured. The newer Russian tanks have automatic loaders so they operate with a crew of 3. Even so, losing 600+_ experienced tank crew members is a problem.

    761. Phil says:

      Putin got what he deserved. He is in a total mess. Ukraine? Just the opposite. Didn’t deserve any of it.

      Bitterlaw says:
      March 13, 2022 at 5:08 pm

      Let’s see if Bitter agrees with you that we should do nothing because Biden is President.

      This is absurd and I never said that. I have been very clear since before the invasion that the US and NATO SHOULD be hitting Russia hard – missile strikes on Russian forces, NFZ, granting NATO status to Ukraine. The fact that Biden is an incompetent moron does not change anything that SHOULD be done. Unfortunately, Biden won’t do it but I have not backed down from what SHOULD be done.

      -Good, we agree, ONCE AGAIN.

      I have stated from the beginning, that jason and Bitterlaw are saying what SHOULD be done, but then going on to say that BECAUSE of Biden, what SHOULD be done WILL NOT be done.

      Of course, jason doesn’t deal with the REALITY that Biden is President, and just reflexively acts like an a-hole and starts calling people “Neville Chamberlains” and “appeasers” and “Putin stooges”….he will go the way of MD eventually.

    763. jason says:

      Since armor is expensive and complex to operate and requires a lot of training, I would expect the tank crews the Russians sent in the initial invasion to be elite units. You can put conscripts in the infantry as cannon fodder, but you don’t do that with armor. The T-72’s run about $2 million each, and the Russians have already lost over 100 of them, there is $200 million right there.

    764. jason says:

      Good, we agree, ONCE AGAIN.”

      BS, there is no “agreement”

      Bitter never said what you claimed he did, he disavowed it completely

      “This is absurd and I never said that.”

      Pretty clear you were lying, again.

    765. Bitterlaw says:

      NYC – But we don’t agree. In fact, you have tried to shut down the discussion. You just say there is no point in even discussing what should be done.

    766. jason says:

      jason doesn’t deal with the REALITY that Biden is President,”

      This from the person who thinks we should ignore “reality” and wait for a “better President”.

      I love it here.

    767. jason says:

      NYC – But we don’t agree.”

      NYC is a Charlie version of that “sorry Charlie” tuna ad.

      Sorry, NYC, you may want to agree with us, but if you think nothing should be done while Biden is President, there is no agreement.

    768. jason says:

      Putin got what he deserved. He is in a total mess.”

      It depends.

      Remember Russia is a dictatorship, and dissent is not allowed and there is no freedom of the press.

      So it is not clear the “mess” will impact his rule significantly, and he is not worried that it will impact the ordinary Russian.

      He can still “win” in the Ukraine by occupying a huge part of the country, taking its capital, and/or overthrowing/assassinating its President.

      He might view that as a win, not a mess.

    769. Phil says:

      ….and I might add that Moldova is now safe. Not because of anything the Biden Administration has done. They haven’t done a damn thing. They are safe because Putin’s military is already stretched to the breaking point.

      Please, no more talk of the big bad Putin threat – to anyone. He’s not one.

    770. Phil says:

      It may not impact his rule. Probably not. It does effect his ability to militarily attack other nations. He’s now considerably weaker militarily. No doubt about that. I’d still impose a NFZ over Moldova. Of course, Biden wouldn’t do that in a million years.

    771. Tgca says:

      More LIES from Jadon…I mean Jussie.

      I have proven by your own words you LIED. Everyone here can see you LIED.

      Just like in 2019 when you were hocking some internet fraud doctor’s book and tried to ridicule me, and I showed you with proof he was a fraud that lost his medical license, and had to go through medical retraining, pay fines, and practice under the supervision of other medical doctors until further notice for his BS advice, and your response was your classic deflection of “Hey Ma” but then you never brought him up again when I posted the proof from the medical boards.

      I have NEVER opposed Dr. Fow-chee because of his politics and I can prove that with my posts of why I questioned him in early 2020. If you want I will post dozens of them along with your glorifying and defending posts of the Good Doctor, which by the way went not a couple weeks as you LIED about above but through July 2020, 4 months into the pandemic and lockdowns when others started to question him.

      You however, have treated Dr. Fow-chee like a teenaged obsessed rock star.

      I even found posts where you stated if Trump doesn’t listen to him on lockdowns, he will be toast in the election.

      I’ll post them later if you like.

      Your posts. Your words.

      Then you can defend each one by explaining away what you REALLY meant to say back then.

      Well, Jussie, I have errands to run so if you like, I’ll come back and post all your historic glorifying posts so let me know.

      Now how do you translate the vehicle lost, damaged, abandoned, captured into soldiers killed, wounded, missing, captured?

      Klingon casualties and captives have to number in the thousands… (my guess is 6,000 so far).

      Also, my prediction form more than a week ago
      is 5 million Ukrainians will flee. How many dead Ukrainians? Hard to say…we will never get an accurate count. Plus, how o you count Ukrainians who die from lack of medicine, freezing to death, etc.

      How many BILLLIONS is this going to cost the U.S. taxpayers in direct military assistance (without boots on ground or in wings in air space) and in humanitarian aid given directly to Poland, etc. to help deal with the refugees?

      All because Biden had no balls to stand up to the head (dick)head Klingon several months ago.

      ################################################

      How well do you think the 16,000 Syrians the Kingons say they are bringing to Ukraine to fight for the Klingons will do in urban fighting in cold Ukraine?

      Big action at Walt’s house last night about 10 p.m.

      A pickup truck careened off the road behind Walt’s house and slammed through the substantial wooden fence (owned by the HOA). Walt’s son ran out to assist with Walt close behind. Mrs. Walt called 911.

      Truck took out 8 big wooden fence posts. One board went through the windshield on the passenger side. Another went into the radiator and punctured it. Guy was alone (seemed to be inebriated) and not injured. Son extracts boards from radiator and windshield. Guy DRIVES OFF before the EMS and State Police arrive. They follow the leaking fluid on the road to a house about 1/2 mile away. Trooper arrives on scene, then goes off to arrest the driver.

      THEN, this morning we hear reports that there was a D.O.A. last night at about the same address. I hope it was not the drunk guy who hit the fence and did substantial damage to the fence.

      If you are so tough about what SHOULD BE DONE, go to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave and make it happen!

      I’ll make a prediction – the fact that Biden is living there will be an obstacle!

      As for attacking Poland, would that make Biden get off his meds and do something? I’m not convinced it would. Should he? Sure. Bomb the Kremlin, like Trump said he would. Level every military installation in Russia. Go for it. I would support our military and our country.

      I sincerely hope it doesn’t get to that point. Hoping that we can get enough arms to Ukraine to survive and keep stalling the Russian army. Time will tell what happens.

      Not one person has a bigger problem with that here than Jadon and that’s probably with 90% of the regular posters here he has that issue, even the ones he’s sucking up to now on the Ukraine issue to get some on his side, only to turn on them in the next debate and call them liars.

      It’s his MO. He accuses people of what he routinely accuses others of and then starts with the name-calling.

      He doesn’t win debates because he has an influencing viewpoint, people simply give up discussing with him because they know they mind as well debate a hooker who argues she’s a decent girl you can bring home to mother.

      Like AOC, he is just delusional when he can’t influence so he starts the name calling. It’s not in jest either which many do here. He seriously can’t take it when others have a viewpoint different than his and they won’t relent to him.

      He’s never mentioned what kind of work he does but I could never imagine him fitting in Corporate America or any profession that requires diplomacy and how to best strategize to win or negotiate.

      Sorry, that dog won’t hunt, biggest crock of crap.

      You support a weak candidate to send a message, knowing they will lose and a liberal Dem will replace them.

      You call it “SENDING A MESSAGE”.

      Your message is “elect Chuck Schumer majority leader”.

      Hey Bitter, I was just compared to AOC.

      Sorry, but that probably locks me in in for the month, you can’t catch up.

    833. NYCmike says:

      “Liar. You didn’t support their “right to run”, you supported their candidacies.”

      -In the general election, Yes.

      In the primary? Show me your work.

      One I do recall was Angle, Lowden, and Tark. I had no issue with any of them. You, I recall, badmouthed Tark from the start. Correct me if I am wrong.

      And another one was Ken Buck vs a woman (name, can’t recall) – I would have been fine with either candidate in the general election.

    834. Tina says:

      Foreign policy was not strength.

      lol. This could be stated by a jebot.

    835. NYCmike says:

      No, mostly be threatening to blow up NATO about who pays what, completely ignoring the fact NATO is in America’s interest too. Really asinine.

    837. NYCmike says:

      “but his attempts to weaken NATO have long standing consequences.”

      -Such ridiculous statements.

      Did you read this in the foreign press or something?

      Oh Lord! jason/Trump/NATO statements is like Robbie/jason/Fauci one. Ludicrous!

      ANOTHER SIMILARITY between jason and Robbie!

    839. jason says:

      In the primary? Show me your work.

      You supported EVERY deadender.

      Buck, Angle, COD, Akin, Mourdock, Brooks, that idiot from MS who fortunately lost.

      And let’s not forget the biggest turd of a candidate who lost to a write in, Joe Miller, who actually said East Germany was a model for immigration policy since they were successful in keeping people out.

    840. Phil says:

      I figured getting NATO countries to kick in their share would actually strengthen NATO but I guess that’s just me.

    841. Tina says:

      Nope the deadbeats paid up and it was strengthened.

      Even the nato head admitted it.

      Btw asking that the deadbeats pay up was a mute 43 idea. It was one of the r planks in 2000.

    842. jason says:

      ANOTHER SIMILARITY between jason and Robbie!”

      Yeah, everyone knows I am a big fan of Amoral Scumbag.

      You might be trying to compete with Tgca for biggest clown.

    843. NYCmike says:

      Found this in regard to Angle. Didn’t know about this:

      “Some prominent Republicans[26] opposed her candidacy. Immediately after the primary, the Republican mayor of Reno, Bob Cashell, who backed Lowden in the Republican primary, endorsed Reid for the general election, calling Angle an “ultra-right winger”.[27][28] Other notable Republicans supporting Harry Reid included Sig Rogich, a former campaign staffer for Ronald Reagan and assistant to President George H. W. Bush;[27] Geno Martini, the Republican mayor of Sparks;[29] Republican State Senator and Minority Leader William Raggio;[30][31] Dema Guinn, the widow of Kenny Guinn, Republican Governor of Nevada;[32] and former Lieutenant Governor Sue Wagner.[33]”

      Guess I shouldn’t be surprised…….

    844. jason says:

      Fine. I would have opposed him threatening NATO too.

      Nah, too stupid.

    850. NYCmike says:

      Self reflection is often tough on a person with your outsized ego.

    853. jason says:

      Ok, I will fix it, you supported EVERY deadender in the primary.

      Every single one.

    855. Tgca says:

      Now on to Ukraine.

      I think I the US should pressure Europe and NATO for a direct solution to approach both sides and work out a realistic long-term deal to avoid continued war.

      Ukraine needs to have its autonomy and run its country without Russian interference, and that should be enforced upon Russia to understand Europe will support this to the end for Ukraine, including a united European war against Russia.

      Ukraine needs to also accept that it will never have peace with those pro-Russian territories that have been either part of Russia or aligned with Russia for hundreds of years. The separatists will never give in to Ukraine so I think Ukraine should give them independence, as they already have done for themselves or let them join Russia. There is no other way to force people who speak Russian, live by its culture, are part of the Russian Orthodox Church, etc to give up all that for Ukrainian lifestyle. Ukraine has to understand Europe can’t have long lasting civil or border wars infecting the rest of Europe.

      If Russia refuses it side, then we tell them we’re going in to defend Ukraine with boots on the ground and NFZ. Russia knows it cannot defeat a united Europe in a traditional war.

      If Ukraine refuses its side, we tell them then they’re on their own and they will no longer get military aid. Ukraine knows it will devolve into more chaos and never prosper being at war with Russia.

      We’ve done similar in other areas of the world and I believe this has a chance of lasting peace, if boundaries can be respected.

      I think Russia has been internationally humiliated and caught off guard so I would bet they would accept a way out that would help them save face.

      I would hope Ukraine would agree they’ll never have peace as long as the separatist regions are part of their country and militarily supported by Russia.

      We will see what happens.

    856. jason says:

    860. jason says:

      You can condense everything Tgca says about the Ukraine into a simple translation:

      “I am a Putin appeaser and toady”.

      After he said Zelensky was the “same as Stalin” there is zero credibility to anything that follows.

    861. NYCmike says:

      Mourdock

      Todd Akin

      Point is that it was a plank among the Rs until they became the party of vax mandates, open borders, war mongers, and drat lite.

      Has there ever been a bigger disaster than Todd Akin?

      I can bet I find posts where you supported COD, Hovde, Angle, Brooks, Miller and Mourdock.

    868. jason says:

      Has there ever been a bigger disaster than Todd Akin?

      NYC supported Mourdock, a close second to Akin in stupidity.

    869. Tgca says:

      A friend of mine reminded me today that Kissinger predicted a lot of these Ukraine/Russia issues years ago. I didn’t recall all the details but I knew Kissinger had concerns of taking sides in Ukraine vs Russia without serious compromise on both sides.

      Kissinger was against Ukraine joining NATO. He believes, as I do, that you can’t simply take a western view to resolving this issue anymore than Russia can take a communist view in addressing concerns the West has with historic Russian aggression.

      You have to try and understand where both sides come from and determine if there is any area of compromise. Otherwise, it’s war and even war won’t permanently resolve it.

      Do we really want to turn part of Europe into the Middle East?

      Though I think the Russians are wrong on it, I believe they seriously think the West is trying to destroy or marginalize them and they will never go willingly, especially if they feel surrounded by Western enemies. We have the same issue with China in its hemisphere. They simply do not see eye to eye with the West.

      Here’s an interesting take from Kissinger on this that I could find.

      It’s from a journalist at Fox who is no liberal or Russian hack.

      LOL. You really are an ignorant fool.

      You do know many Ukrainians are Russian speakers, not just in “separatist areas”. In fact, Russian speakers dominate over half the country.

      But the fact they speak Russian does mean they want to be part of Russia anymore than we want to be part of England because we speak English.

      “Your an anti-West Putin-lover who supports the murder of Ukrainians” is not an actual argument countering the criticism that NATO expansion led to these events.

      Questioning the actions of your government—especially when your country is wrong—is the highest form of patriotism.

    874. jason says:

      -I was wrong to support them in the general election? ”

      Too late then.

      You were wrong to support them in the primaries because you wanted to send your message.

    875. NYCmike says:

      Mourdock, who was a previous state-wide elected official, definitely had my support. And there was no reason to think that he would enter into an abortion/pregnancy discussion during a debate. He was clearly ahead and would have won until that point. No apologies there.

      As for Akin, I did not support him in the primary. I was leaning more to the person who Palin had chosen, was it Steelman??

    876. jason says:

      I like it, the shoe certainly fits.

      -Odd……jason and Wes haven’t answered this question…….

    879. Tgca says:

      I never said Zelenskyy was Stalin. I was making the point how we need to support the Ukrainian cause and not it’s leader who is deeply embedded in corruption, as his predecessors. I purposely pointed out the pre-dictator Stalin era.

      My exact quote from 481

      He reminds me more of Stalin before and during WW2 than Reagan, someone we viewed as corrupt and ultimately not trustworthy but someone we aligned with to fight the evil Germans because at the time we had a common goal and he was less of an enemy to worry about.

      I am not saying Zelenskyy will become an evil dictator like Stalin but he appears corrupt and we should not trust him or prop him up as we may later regret that as we have with so many dictators we aligned ourselves with historically at a point in time.

      We worked with Stalin before and during WW2 but he was not someone we could ultimately trust.

      The US has a history of aligning itself with bad characters who often became dictators later on. I also gave Saddam Hussein as an example, a leader the US supported for years and supposedly assisted in overthrowing his predecessor.

      I distrust Zelenskyy because of his corruption and he has been trying to shame the West into a direct military conflict with Russian, and I do not think that is something we should take lightly. He is using us for his means!

      This is not Russian propaganda. Our own US leaders have concerns with Ukrainian corruption and its leaders. Ask Trump how that worked out for him dealing with Ukraine.

      Ukrainian corruption has been reported on for years by independent journalist associated with many news organizations of various political stripes throughout the world.

    880. NYCmike says:

      Tgca,

      jason will say we can’t go back past 2019 to make comparisons.

    881. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      It should remembered that Zelensky is from a Russian-speaking area. Kharkiv is the largest Russian speaking city in the Ukraine, yet has held out against the Russians. in the present invasion, no area of the Ukraine has welcomed Russian troops.

    882. Tgca says:

      Like the good low-level soldier, Jadon will always believe what the US tells him. He can’t fathom how the US provided intelligence to Saddam Hussein in the early 80s to hurt Iran, and indirect support for rebels in the 1960s when Saddam and his friends were trying to overthrow Iraqi leadership. Saddam was a good friend to the US then and I bet Jadon wholeheartedly supported it.

      Too bad Saddam never got his Reagan Freedom Medal.

      Jadon is a dupe out of the Manchurian Candidate. He’s very easily misled by a sense of loyalty to the US – which in his mind means the US can NEVER be wrong and must always be right even when it’s wrong.

      Think Iraq 2: The Make My Daddy Proud War…or fiasco or low point as others may better acknowledge it.

      Some of usblater acknowledge the lies of the Bush/Cheney team that misled us into that fiasc, as we got better info with even Colin Powell acknowledging the mistake but still excusing it away that the evidence presentation to the UN didn’t matter because GWB already made up his mind to attack and invade Iraq.

      Tgca’s ignorance knows no bounds, you think he might have researched that a little before saying something that stupid.

      Now every Russian speaker in Ukraine has to go back to being Russian.

      The Putin appeasers outdo each other with every post.

    886. Tgca says:

      I suggest SDC and others read up on Kissinger’s view and better understand the mindset of the player’s and the causes and the difficulties of finding a solution, especially a Western drawn one without such understanding.

      Kissinger was against Ukraine in NATO.

      Kissinger predicted a good deal of what has occurred, placing misunderstanding on both sides of the true root causes.

      It does not matter someone’s background in this situation. Many in Caleefawnyuh would join foreigners to fight the US.

      I grew up in Jersey and lived in Caleefawnyuh for nearly 2 decades but think they’re both cesspools of corruption and human waste for the most part and would have no problem fighting against them if ever the US entered a civil war on opposite sides with them.

      Sure you did.

      He reminds me more of Stalin before and during WW2″

      I just gave an example in 912 before I saw your response.

      Some Jews in the US would love to see Israel taken over too. What does that say about loyalty?

      Many people in US territories like Caleefawnyuh, NY, NJ, and PA would gladly leave the US instead of defend it, and I bet many would fight against it, as I noted in a poll in post 513.

      So again, what does that matter where they were originally from or the language they spoke?

      Don’t take it personally. I got accused of “supporting Akin” too.

      In actuality, I contributed to, & voted for, John Brunner in that election, as I mentioned both at the time, & many other times thereafter over the years.

      This is not the 1st weeks of the pandemic either, its supporting it through June, nearly 3 months into the pandemic, as others were starting to wake up to the shenanigans and question lockdowns then.

      Seems like Jadon WAS supporting the Good Doctor’s policy back then though he doesn’t remember it, again, probably all that bacon which causes dementia.

      He sounds like he echoes Dr. Fow-chee who kept moving the goal posts.

      I also found another post where Jadon said the lockdowns saved hundreds of thousands of lives even though a recent study claims to debunk that and is being peered reviewed, especially compared to the loss of lives due to missed healthcare maintenance in other areas. I forgot to copy the link and have to go find it again.

      Now watch Jadon pick it apart as this is NOT what he really meant to say.

      This is what, like 4 times today I posted Jadon’s own words where he contradicts himself or lies but unashamedly accuses others of doing EXACTLY what he does routinely.

      Now, with cases still around 30000 a day”
      It will be falling fairly rapidly now, that is the plateau number. In two weeks we should be down to 750 deaths a day, and in 3 to 195.
      I would agree with a different strategy before all this started, but it is too late now.
      I am in favor of continuing the lockdown until May 1 for the states early on the curve, May 15 for the ones in the middle, and June 1 for the really late ones.
      But I believe that in all cases there are certain types of low contact businesses that can start opening as early as now.

      Seems pretty reasonable to me, this was April 2020.

    910. NYCmike says:

      “NCY copied what I said and then got its meaning completely wrong.”

      -And didn’t that lead to a question from me?

      Waiting for an answer……

    911. jason says:

      Was Tgca against this at the time?

      WASHINGTON — Bracing the nation for a grim death toll, President Donald Trump on Sunday extended the voluntary national shutdown for a month, bowing to public health experts who told him the coronavirus pandemic could claim over 100,000 lives in the U.S., perhaps significantly more, if not enough is done to fight it.

      It was a stark shift in tone by the president, who only days ago mused about the country reopening in a few weeks. From the Rose Garden, he said his Easter revival hopes had only been “aspirational.”

    912. jason says:

      Am I missing something there?”

      Yes, both SDC’s comment and my comment were responding to Tgca’s ignorant comment about Russian speakers in the Ukraine.

    913. Tgca says:

      Ummm…I consider all armed forces as part of the gubbermint. They do get gubbermint paychecks and are led by gubbermint officials and serve on or in gubbermint property, right?

      I don’t think that’s disrespectful. It’s a fact and nothing to be ashamed of…now the leaders of the gubbermint that often make decisions for the military…that’s another story.

      Would you be offended if I disparage General Milley, Colonel Vindman, SOD Lloyd Austin? These are woke disgraceful American servicemen me thinks.

    914. Bitterlaw says:

      Carter was terrible on foreign policy. Tgca and his justifications for letting Ukraine fall is also terrible on foreign policy. Both can be true.

    915. jason says:

      I also found another post where Jadon said the lockdowns saved hundreds of thousands of lives even though a recent study claims to debunk that”

      LOL

      Sorry, I wasn’t aware of the recent study when I made the comment years ago.

      All of us as far as I know believed the early shutdowns saved lives, we just didn’t think it should go on forever.

      Maybe Tgca can show us his posts in April 2020 where he disagreed with Trump.

    916. Tgca says:

      Where did I say let Ukraine fall?

      I have advocated for NFZ and military intervention led by Europe and NATO.

      My two main issues are:

      1st, US should not lead it or go it alone.
      2nd, we support the cause to the end but weary of supporting corrupt leaders and propping them up because we have a bad history of that.

      I have repeatedly made those posts.

    917. NYCmike says:

      ” Tgca and his justifications for letting Ukraine fall is also terrible on foreign policy. Both can be true.”

      -There is a comment above where both Ukraine and Russia would have to give something up or else the United States would side with the other party…….at least Tgca is thinking about real-life situations.

      We KNOW that the solutions set forth by you and jason are unrealistic with the present administration.

      Should we continue to entertain you by dealing in a fantasy world where Biden would do what you say?

    918. Tgca says:

      942

      So Jadon NOW agrees with me that he did support Dr. Fow-chee policies and supported lockdowns, at least early on.

      I’ll ask Dave if we can amend all Jadon’s previous posts today where I proved he said what he claims he did not say. I’ll see if we can get the HHR record expunged.

      Again, rather than fight your errors, just blame it on the bacon. As you know, or maybe you forgot already, a recent study published last year determined a higher risk of dementia for those who eat bacon regularly, I think more than 2 slices daily so clearly you know where that puts your risk if it’s just 2 slices daily.

    919. NYCmike says:

      I think I’m in good company when Henry Kissinger agrees with me.

      I should send him a thank you note since I believe he’s still around.

      Hmmm…I wonder if Henry is ghosting us and stealing my EXPERT assessments…or maybe he’s stealing LisaB’s and now writing on gay diplomacy.

    921. jason says:

      Nah, I was supporting Trump’s policy.

    922. jason says:

      No, not NOW, you are a compulsive liar.

      I supported Trump’s flatten the curve lockdowns based on the information available, I don’t remember them as very controversial.

      But you can show me your posts where you opposed them, since you are doing “selective” research.

      Of course, you won’t post what I said for years after that initial shutdown opposing lockdowns, mandates, and Fauci’s “policies”, because you are a dishonest clown.

      ir, Trump is the one that bought into his advice. It was a huge mistake.”

      It was no mistake. Without a lockdown Trump would not have survived politically, even if the number of deaths was not different.

      We would have had more than 140k deaths, but even if the number was exactly the same, they would all have been blamed on Trump.

      They still are, but he has some credibility. Thanks to Fauci and Birx.

      If Trump does get re-elected, you can thank your lucky stars for Fauci.

      Fauci is a fine man, he has contributed about 2 million more times to the country than petty partisan hacks like Tgca, whose intellectual capacity can’t get beyond “but, but, but he once said something positive about Hillary”.

    926. jason says:

      Don’t take it personally. I got accused of “supporting Akin” too. ”

      Speaking of compulsive liars, mnw is back…

      You have defended Akin endlessly here, including saying he was not a deadender before he make that comment.

      Actually, he was always a moron deadender, he just wasn’t in the limelight since he represented a safe R district. As soon as he got in the big leagues, he self destructed.

      So saying you supported him is fair.

    927. NYCmike says:

      It was around that time when he suggested Fauci should get another Medal of Honor, shortly after CDM mentioned he got one from Bush in 2008.

      Country Dick Montana says:

      I stand 100% behind that statement, except maybe it should be 4 million times more.

      And note I was on to Tgca early that the only reason he opposed Fauci was cheap partisan politics.

    931. Tgca says:

      This is priceless!

      While war rages in Ukraine, European Parliament votes on gender-neutral toilets

      This why I don’t think the US should go it alone in Europe. We need Europe to lead this effort before we step in and cause chaos and interrupt their legislative process.

      I do not want to see the US blamed for its cowboy arrogance of getting gender neutral toilets legislation stalled because it caused a European crisis with war.

      Perhaps General Milley will work with the Europeans to ensure gender neutral legislation passes before the US declares war on Russia.

      And that is a lie, Fauci never misled anybody.

      He gave the best advice with the information available.

      And he might have saved Trump’s Presidency.

      As I stated above, Trump would not have survived 140k deaths if he had not ordered a lockdown.

    938. NYCmike says:

      You were right about the lockdown part, which just about everyone else agreed.

      The issue is that this is now May 25th……and it goes on for several weeks, at least, with your Fauci-love.

    939. jason says:

      The Fauci-cheerleading by jason would still be going on in June, and maybe further…….will take some looks in the coming days…”

      I didn’t think Trump should fire Fauci because I thought it could cause him to lose the election.

      He lost anyway. I still don’t think it would have been a good idea at the time.

      Sue me.

    940. NYCmike says:

      “Nah, you had already lost all credibility because the only reason you opposed him was because he was a “Hillary supporter”.”

      -No, you didn’t accuse me of that until September or so, I believe.

      You had already accused Tina and Tgca of it many times.

      It was wrong then, it’s wrong now.

      It’s another idiotic argument you use and recycle when you are unwilling to reflect on your own stances.

    941. Tgca says:

      More lies.

      By the end of this week, I will post my very early posts in 2020 that detailed my concerns with Dr. Fow-chee even though I acknowledged his credentials and experience.

      I never knew his political affiliation until you all brought it up and I think once I teased Tina about it.

      So let’s make a bet Jadon, and I’ll up the ante. Let’s bet $1,000 to charity if you can find one post where I seriously questioned his politics early on, not after the 2020 election where I posted he betrayed Trump once he knew Biden would be in office.

      Are you man enough to take that bet? Find a post where I was against Dr. Fow-chee because he supported Hillary.

      Find the post please.

      I wish I would have bet you on your posts because I would have gotten about $4,000 from you today in finding your contradicting posts.

      …or better yet, if you can’t find any such post, then you do not post at HHR for an entire month so we have some respectful posting atmosphere.

      Deal?

    942. jason says:

      and it goes on for several weeks, at least, with your Fauci-love”

      I admired Fauci’s record and thought he gave Trump legitimacy, I thought he “protected” Trump against the hostile MSM. I remember even a time where he debunked an MSM attack where they said Trump controlled what he said. He denied it.

      But after the initial lockdown, I never supported any of Fauci’s suggestions (that is all they were, Fauci had no power to implement anything) as far as restrictions on sports, restaurants, mandates, masks, etc.

    943. jason says:

      -No, you didn’t accuse me of that until September or so, I believe. ”

      I was responding to Tgca. He and Tina definitely made an issue of Fauci’s politics.

      UNBELIEVABLE !

      I guess I should not be surprised. I believe Jadon also referred to Oliver North and friends involved in Iran-contra as heroes for their illegal acts.

    949. Tgca says:

      973

      That turned out to be true!

      Dr. Fow-chee said he relied on information from China.

      A man in his position for that many years should know do not rely on China to be open and honest with you, as subsequent inquiries have shown…so I was correct upfront.

      You talk about Russian propaganda but fall for Chinese propaganda.

      Ha! Ha!

      Ok.

      Huh, the virus originated there, where do you suggest he get “information” from?

    954. Tgca says:

      Jadon has yet to show one post where I questioned Dr. Fow-Chee’s political leanings.

      Please show me one…just one please.

      Nothing you posted yet is about his political leanings. Not one post.

      It was always about his poor judgment.

      I know I acknowledged his credentials and pedigree but that has nothing to do with judgment in his job duties.

    955. jason says:

      They actually think Romney and Bush World are “the most influential orbits in the R party.

    959. jason says:

      Of course, Amoral Scumbag and the Biden Troll think they represent the R party, so there is that.

    960. Tgca says:

      No! I talked about Dr. Fow-chee to discredit your lies about people here on Pootin. Again, you’re trying to deflect.

      You accuse all of lying, moving goal posts, etc when I showed it was you that has actually done that. I discredited you with those posts proving your lies, or whatever you wish to call them.

      Looks like 5 times I showed that today which goes to your MO.

      You repeat things over and over thinking that others will believe them when pretty much everyone here knows that’s your MO. That’s why I mocked you as AOC. Regardless of what evidence people show you, you ignorantly repeat words over and over.

      You sound like those that call everyone a RACIST except you use words like ISOLATIONISTS or APPEASER or STOOGE.

      You appear to be afraid to debate different views. You just want to call people names and hope they back down.

      I showed your contradictions and you don’t like it. You got taken down today and now have to walk back your lies. Everyone reading posts today saw where you denied posts only to be shown you contradicted yourself.

      Stop making up crap about others and you won’t get this embarrassing stuff coming back at you.

      Why can’t you just agree to disagree instead of feeling you have to dig in and win all the time, even when faced with errors. I get the passion but suggesting we’re somehow unpatriotic is highly offensive.

      I may be obnoxious and pushy but you have probably fought with 90% of posters here in similar craps calling them liars, and accusing them of things they NEVER said or implied, even the posters you’re trying to use now to prop up your Ukraine arguments, you’ve routinely attacked them as well.

      I have no problem with you disagreeing but calling people stooges and appeasers is something I will defend against because it goes to patriotism.

      So if you wish to continue this, I will give you as good as I get from you and continuously post your hypocrisy of getting caught what you accuse others of.

      At some point people see your hypocritical BS in your own contradicting posts.

      Your choice.

      I will find those posts sometime this week where I said I questioned his judgment and then all will see again you were wrong.

    963. Tgca says:

      979

      It was in relation to questioning if the data was reliable or not.

      So if Russia releases a deadly virus, you’ll rely on Russia for the information to be completely open and honest about it with no questions?

      Later emails of Dr. Fow-chee from FOIA requests shows he did not believe China upfront so either he was being naive, cunning or trying to later diver his tracks but either way he used poor judgment.

      Dr. Fow-chee got caught lying to Congress and the American people.

      He even admitted he purposely distorted information in hopes of getting compliance with policies he advocated.

      Dr. Fow-chee is a known and proven liar on a number of issues.

      If the GOP takes over in 2022, look for serious charges recommended against him to the DOJ, especially lying to Congress and gain of function criminality.

      If the GOP wins the WH in 2024, look for the DIJ to prosecute him.

      There are many reports now that the Russians are running out of supplies and weaponry. It is one reason they are begging China for help.

      Amazingly, it also appears Mariupol may have held and the Russians could be pulling back.

      “The reports citing other US officials say that there were signs of Russian special military operations running out of non-specified weaponry after the war began nearly 20 days ago/

      Even an adviser to the Ukrainian president thinks the Russians may soon run out of resources:

      “The war in Ukraine could be over by early May when Russia runs out of resources, Oleksiy Arestovich, adviser to the Ukrainian president’s chief of staff said on Monday.

      Not true! I made it clear in my posts why I questioned his judgment which in the long run turned out to be supported by many news reports and our gubbermint itself questioning acces to data from China and it’s accuracy and whether we should have relied upon them at the time to be completely open and honest.

      The vast majority of Americans continue to admire Fauci?

      ?Is that like the vast majority of NYers admire Cuomo with his recent nearly 80% approval rating?

      ?Is that like the vast majority of CA admires Newsom with his recent 70% approval rating?

      ?That must mean Cuomo and Newsom are great leaders with stellar accomplishments to get such numbers so any criticism of them during this crisis is partisan character assassination, right?

      ?With such approval numbers, these guys should be leading the nation instead of Trump, right?

      Coumo/Newsom should be the ones we all put partisanship aside and support in 2020 to get the country on track I guess because they are greatly admired in their states which make up nearly 20% of US population.

      ?I think once folks see the poor judgment that both Fauci and Cuomo exhibited later on, it will change their view of them.

      ?Fauci is a bureaucrat who has was hoodwinked by China and W.H.O, and is naively used by the MSM.

      ?Leadership is not defined by intelligence or pedigree but by making good decisions at critical points that are beneficial, not something that could be said of Fauci in this pandemic.

      I don’t think anyone is seriously saying that Fauci is not a team asset. Some of us are saying, that as a professional with his lengthy background running in political circles as a 4 decade bureaucrat, it appears he acted naively and seriously erred in relying on info from communist China and W.H.O. and being used by the MSM that was then used in his influence to provide guidance to leaders. That was his big mistake. Again, if this was not gubbermint, he would have been demoted, tasked elsewhere, or fired.

      I am not against Fauci for supporting Clinton because I was not aware of his politics until the last month, and I never recall reading anything where he was overtly a Clinton lover where he would risk his reputation to get in her good graces.

      Fauci’s knowledge and pedigree are not the issue here. It’s the credibility of his changing statements and his naïveté of trusting blindly in China and W.H.O. and getting used by the MSM. His insteps were used to provide guidance to many leaders that trusted in what he guided was correct when he should have known better. He is acting more like someone in academia then a 1st responder.

The record is clear and shows Fauci has whistled different tunes at different stages, when such an experienced bureaucrat should have known better.

      Evidence not in facts?

      That’s what we’ve been saying about Fauci. He has not searched for “facts in evidence” and routinely given conflicting info and got used as a pawn by China, W.H.O., and the MSM.

      My beef with Fauci was not the model outcomes as time progressed, as models can change based on new inputs. That is a basic rule of modeling. However, models should use reasonable qualitative and quantitative inputs.

      I fault Fauci for his professional and qualitative errors, relying on China for accurate info when we know these communist regimes have a long history of misleading and being untruthful. That is where Fauci failed, that and the fact he also relied on the W.H.O when should not have. He appeared naive. He was unable to observe subjects and conditions in China that would be critical to modeling and giving leadership appropriate advice.

      It’s like building a house. If you rely on the quality of the poor builders or a poor land foundation (qualitative inputs) having adequate measurements and supplies of materials (quantitative inputs) to achieve an outcome will not result in a house that will stand properly.

      Now you can agree or disagree with my assessments but they are ALL based on what I perceived as Dr. Fow-chee’s judgment flaws.

      Not one of those posts talk about his political leanings being my concern or basis for my view, and I challenge anyone to find such posts where I inferred or made any statement about his political leanings as a basis for my views of him.

      I also found posts where I acknowledged his credentials, experience and pedigree, and refer to that again in posts 1004 and 1006 from 2020.

      Again, this proves Jadon makes things up when he stated my criticism of the Good Doctor was never about his judgment but instead about his political leanings.

      I have offered Jadon a $1,000 bet to find any post during this time where I had an issue with Dr. Fow-chee’s politics as a basis for my views posted.

      This is typical Jadon drawing conclusions from nothing because he doesn’t like the content of the posts. Like AOC, he throws out things that are absurd and easily disproven.

      That is now 6 times today I believe I have proven Jadon wrong with historical posts as proof of what he claimed was indeed wrong. It took quite some time to search the archives but it was well worth it to prove him wrong so hopefully learns from being so AOC.

      The question Rubio posed was whether Ukraine had “chemical or biological weapons.” Nuland’s answer referred to “biological research facilities.” Was that an indication that Ukraine did have biological weaponry, or the capability to develop it? Was Nuland really answering “Yes” to Rubio’s question?

      Would an experienced high-level gubbermint official really misinterpret Rubio’s inquiry and answer on something not of concern or was she assuming he meant biowarfare? According to the article, Rubio was unprepared for that answered and did no follow-up which if true, I find unbelievable and dumb of him.

      In my EXPERT view, this is a wake-up call for stoopid Europeans to poop or get off the pot and make real decisions. The UN or the US cannot be there to solve every regional issue.

      1st, they need to become more energy independent, whether that means purchases outside Russia or more NOOKYOOLER because the current dispute shows how Russia, whether wisely or not, can cripple economies in Europe or push it into recession, and current green energy solutions can’t meet their consumption needs or allow for economic growth and expansion.

      2nd, they need to determine their long-term relationship with Russia. Do they want to appease, confront, or find middle-ground they can live with to avert continued border conflicts spilling over into Europe, as this is going to continue for some time, and ignoring it will not make it go away.

      3rd, they need to figure out if expanding NATO is their best option at this time, as it will most likely cause more friction with Russia and its allies for decades to come, and if they expand NATO, how do they manage conflicts internally since NATO was not originally destined to include all European nations with varied interests and cultures that may conflict and result in issues similar to the UN. For example, if a small group of NATO states are opposed to NATO actions against another state, do certain states have veto power or is it a majority/super majority rule or must it be unanimous?

      4th, if NATO is expanded, what level of aggression will Europe accept from Russia such as interference, hacking, border disputes, etc since Russia will NEVER accept an expanded NATO under its current leaders anymore than the US would accept a communist expansionist group in central or South America near its borders. Like it or not, perception is reality.

      There are no easy solutions here and all come with some level of risk, as you never know what will happen but as Kissinger says, failure to reach some sort of consensus will ultimately result in a new Cold War for at least a period of time, and as unwelcome as that may be, the alternative of a European war worse is a lot worse especially since most of Europe does not want that.

      Peace in strength is not achieved without a certain level of diplomacy and consensus. The trick is how to actually make that diplomacy and consensus produce tangible results.

      The stamp — called “Russian warship, go f*** yourself!” — references an interaction on Snake Island.

      The Ukrainian Postal Service (Ukrposhta) announced the stamp design after holding a public vote on social media for a postage stamp competition meant to commemorate the soldiers who defended a military outpost on the island last month.”

      U. S. uses precision bombing and missile attacks.
      Russia flails away indiscriminately. Collateral damage and civilians be damned.

      Russian equipment used in invasion is old and second-rate condition. Many of front line units are made up of conscripts or people called up for “military drills”.

      Why would Russian commanders send in tank and armored columns without infantry support or artillery support? They are getting chewed up.

      The Ukrainians are punching Putin in the nutz.

      And the Ukrainians are fast approaching (if not already surpassing) the taking out of over 2,000 Russian pieces of war equipment (tanks, planes, armored personnel carriers, trucks, etc.).

      I’m sure Pootin is listening in too and reviewing my EXPERT advice to find a way out and save as much face as possible before going on such adventures in the future.

      Just think! If only a Pootin and Zelenskyy checked in at HHR 1st, they could’ve avoided this mess by getting my EXPERT advice supported by my ALLIES here.

      This might be a good opportunity for HHR to wield more influence around the world…maybe even be nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize.

      Now watch for certain HHR posters try to jump on the bandwagon and say they’ve agreed with that resolutions all along.

    1037. Tgca says:

      I think Pootin and Zelenskyy may run into some stalled negotiations if they can’t agree on who gets the Hunter artwork and who gets to hire him as a consultant.

      I have an EXPERT solution to that as well.

      For part of the year, Hunter works for one country while his artwork is on display at the other country and then vice versa for another part of the year. This way both countries have some portion of Hunter all year round.

      NATO was always about a few key nations with similar economies and values making decisions promptly, as needed.

      It was NEVER meant to be tied up in bureaucracy if some chithole country had reservations that required internal unending negotiations for weeks, months or years. That’s why we have the UN!

      Aggressively expanding NATO will alienate Russia and its allies and only make them more aggressive.

      No one is saying Russia has veto power over who joins NATO but consideration should be taken to what expansion can lead to.

      Think Cuba in the 1960s. Amerika went berserk thinking Russia was going to expand its foothold into our territory. Why should not Russia react similarly, right or not, paranoid or not.

      This is part of Kissinger’s point and I trust him a lot more than neocons today that want more war because war is good for their pockets.

    1044. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      241. If Ukraine does not join NATO the Russia won the war. It will become a puppet state that disgraces the memory of those killed fighting to repel the invasion and the civilians who died..

      Respectfully, I have to disagree. This war was about Putin’s desire to restore the Soviet Union. Putin stated there was no such thing as a separate Ukraine, and that it was really part of Russia. If Ukraine preserves it’s independence, it has won.

      Ukraine had not applied to join NATO when Russia invaded. It wanted the right to do so preserved. But certainly the limited help NATO provided disillusioned the Ukrainians.

      Putin thought he could easily take over the Ukraine in a matter of days, and was not prepared for a protracted war. His military was humiliated. The idea that Ukraine is just a breakaway part of Russia, is over. Ukraine earned it’s recognition as a separate nation.

      Ultimately, the big loser will be Putin. His military was humiliated, and quite possibly might have failed to defeat the Ukrainians if the war had lasted. His economy is now in shambles. I doubt he will remain in power very long. He looked inept and stupid.

      Now he may be signing a peace agreement with a nation he thinks is a province of Russia and should not exist. All of Putin’s visions of his grandeur as leader of the new Soviet Union just fell into a heap of dust.

      Finally, I need to remind everyone that I was the one who told you the Ukrainians would fight.

      Agreed!

      If they come to an agreeable resolution that results in some lasting peace, then that’s a good thing.

      American interests should not trump European interests in this circumstance.

      Ideally, many in the US want to see a more weakened and isolated Russia to forge a more peaceful world and that is understandable but that could also mean more danger for the US pushing it.

      Russia has been a great annoyance to the US the last decade and caused us some issues but nothing that would rise to a new Cold War, and the US pushing for something Ukraine is not willing to push for could further destabilize Europe.

      In other words, if Ukraine and Russia work out a deal that’s good for them and doesn’t bring more harm to the region, MYOFB Amerika!

      I don’t agree. Once Ukraine gives up its rights as a sovereign nation, which it would do if it lets Russia decide who joins NATO, then it can be invaded any time the Russians want, it will never have true independence or security.

      I would agree that IF Ukraine preserves its independence it has won, but giving up the right to join NATO does not preserve its independence.

      Actually NATO is based on a defensive alliance to counter a certain threat, REGARDLESS of the differences among the members, which are and have always been significant. England, France and Germany have centuries of wars and fighting each other, but were/are united against the Soviet (now Russia) threat.

      Giving Russia veto power over who joins NATO is weakness, capitulation and appeasement, which History shows up never works.

      What will keep Russia from being more aggressive are the limitations of its conventional military. It’s been shockingly unimpressive. Flat out bad in fact. I was all for a NFZ over Moldova. I’ve seen enough. Not necessary. Putin was never a threat to NATO countries. NATO air power would demolish any Russian invasion.force. A forty mile convoy would be a forty mile scrap heap in half a day.

      The threat was always Putin’s desire to reclaim non NATO former Soviet providences. Well, he still wants to. From what we’ve seen in Ukraine he lacks the ability to do it. His military is and was way overrated by everyone – and that includes Putin. The guy is in search of an off ramp.

He claimed his UN speech was written by the VP office when he was asked to present it to the UN because he had credibility but it really didn’t matter anyway because GWB already decided to go to war before the presentation to the UN.

      The UN never voted on it because only 4 of the 15 security council nations would sign on.

      The UN Secretary General stated it was an illegal invasion and did not conform with the UN charter.

      Colin Powell’s chief of staff later admitted that he inadvertently participated in a hoax on the American people.

      UN investigators provided evidence contrary to the US and gave examples of where it was wrong or lacked credibility, specifically on the aerial photographs. Other nations agreed as well but to no avail since the US made up its mind.

      Other smaller countries that signed on since most of the larger nations did not later complained they were coerced into supporting the US position.

      It appears years later that folks lied and misled the American people. Amerika violated the UN charter and led an illegal invasion.

      GWB and Cheney retired wealthy men while hundreds of thousands died unnecessarily because of their ignorance, deception, and stupidity and they have shown no remorse for this stain on Amerika where the world is aware of the enormous error.

      1130

      Correct!

      How many people would have died around the world since then directly because of Iraq vs how many died directly because of the GWB EXCELLENT ADVENTURE?

      Or does it not matter because they’re not of European heritage?

    1102. Tgca says:

      If Saddam did not have WMDs, as we now know, and he was under tight supervision and sanctions where it would be extremely difficult to get more, just exactly how would he wreak havoc on and destabilize the world?

      ‘Splain please.

    1103. Bitterlaw says:

      The intelligence services of the US, UK, Germany, Israel and France all agreed. Tgca and Wes always dodge that fact.

    1104. Tgca says:

      I’ve read about this in the past and don’t remember all the details but evidently the US provided intelligence to Iraq on Iran troops knowing Iraq would use chemical warfare on them.

      How does Bitter sleep at night knowing folks in the Reagan administration knew of this?

      In 1988, during the waning days of Iraq’s war with Iran, the United States learned through satellite imagery that Iran was about to gain a major strategic advantage by exploiting a hole in Iraqi defenses. U.S. intelligence officials conveyed the location of the Iranian troops to Iraq, fully aware that Hussein’s military would attack with chemical weapons, including sarin, a lethal nerve agent.

      U.S. officials have long denied acquiescing to Iraqi chemical attacks, insisting that Hussein’s government never announced he was going to use the weapons. But retired Air Force Col. Rick Francona, who was a military attaché in Baghdad during the 1988 strikes, paints a different picture. “The Iraqis never told us that they intended to use nerve gas. They didn’t have to. We already knew,”

      It has been previously reported that the United States provided tactical intelligence to Iraq at the same time that officials suspected Hussein would use chemical weapons. But the CIA documents, which sat almost entirely unnoticed in a trove of declassified material at the National Archives in College Park, Md., combined with exclusive interviews with former intelligence officials, reveal new details about the depth of the United States’ knowledge of how and when Iraq employed the deadly agents. They show that senior U.S. officials were being regularly informed about the scale of the nerve gas attacks.

    1105. Bitterlaw says:

      If you want to believe an evil dictator would have retired to peaceful pursuits like raising dates, go for it. Saddam Hussein was a vicious killer. Vicious killers look for ways to continue killing.

    1106. Bitterlaw says:

      Tgca still won’t explain his support for allowing Putin free reign in Ukraine but he will trash Zelensky.

      Iranian and Iraqi troops killing each other never bothered me.

    1107. Tgca says:

      1134

      And the UN inspectors on the ground disagreed and thought the evidence was shabby. They turned out to be right.

      The countries Bitter noted were also relying on US intelligence as well which we now know, per Colin Powell, was NOT solid though he was told it was which means something was rotten in Denmark.

      Germany and France also were against invading Iraq, as was Canada too. The US could only get 4 of 15 security council members to agree there was enough to launch an invasion so that is why they never got the blessing of the UN, which to this day considers the invasion of Iraq illegal under the UN charter.

      I wonder what the UN would have said at the time if Colin Powell told them he was chosen to speak at the UN because he had credibility and his speech was written by Cheney’s office, and that it doesn’t matter anyway because GWB already decided to invade Iraq. These are Colin Powell’s own words mind you.

      Technically speaking, from a UN viewpoint, not morally, the US invasion of Iraq was no more legal than the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

      Bitter forgets all this too. Maybe that’s why he’s able to sleep at night.

    1108. Tgca says:

      1137

      So when Iraq was a friend to the Reagan administration, Bitter did not care about them. Don’t tell Reagan Bitter faulted him for who he chose as an ally.

      I guess those darker skinned people in the Middle East are not as important as those lighter skinned people in Ukraine.

    1109. Bitterlaw says:

      Interesting that Tgclown posted an article about Saddam killing Iranian soldiers but was silent about his gas attacks on Kurdish civilians.

    1110. Tgca says:

      1136

      Saddam was a vicious killer supported and propped up by the US and used US financial and technical support to be a vicious killer.

    1111. Tgca says:

      1140

      I remember the Kurdish gas attacks. Awful. I remember the pictures of the dead baby. I will never forget that.

      Chemical warfare bought and supported with US funding by the way but later used on the Kurds.

    1112. Bitterlaw says:

      I have never slept well and it has nothing to do with world affairs.

      Tgca calls me a racist? Zzzzzzzzzz. He called Romney a racist, too. Tgca claims to a true conservative but he plays the race card, trusts the UN and gives Putin a free pass while trashing Zelensky.

    1113. Bitterlaw says:

      Tgca claims the gas attacks on the Kurds were awful but he trusted Saddam to behave himself and never be a threat again. I love this place.

    1114. Bitterlaw says:

      I will leave Tgca to continue his DailyKos and Code Pink talking points.

    1115. Tgca says:

      But back to my Iraq inquiry.

      Even if Amerika was totally unaware that Saddam had no WMD which is a stretch but let’s give the US the benefit of the doubt.

      Don’t you think the US owes the world and Iraq an apology?

      In most countries, if you cause death by negligence, you still suffer consequences, even prosecution and imprisonment.

      What consequences has the US ever suffered for illegally invading Iraq and being responsible for hundreds of thousands of deaths, more deaths than Americans have ever died in any of its wars?

      Wouldn’t a memorial to Iraq at a minimum be the right thing to do?

      How about a speech at the UN about lessons learned in rush to judgment and faulty evidence, and a public apology?

      Are those innocent Iraqi people not deserving of such an apology?

      How about GWB acknowledging he was wrong and apologizing to the families his bad judgment resulted in?

      Or do you believe in NEVER admit error or apologize, regardless of what the facts turn out to be because it makes you look weak?

    1116. Tgca says:

      1143

      You claim Iran and Iraq lives are not important to you but you fret over European lives.

      Just trying to understand why you feel that way.

      It’s a logical conclusion to think it has something to do with their ethnicity based on your comments.

    1117. Tgca says:

      1144

      I never said any such thing.

      I questioned you on how an isolated, financially struggling country with no close friends to support it and with a ragtag military and no WMD could destabilize the world.

      ‘Splain please.

    1118. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      Let’s never forget that it was Biden the timid that prevented Ukraine from getting additional fighter jets from Poland. Biden also opposed the mission that killed Bin Laden. And we previously saw him turn tail and run in Afghanistan:

      “A growing and bipartisan group in Congress is pushing President Biden to facilitate the transfer of Poland’s MiG-29 fighter jets to Ukraine amid Russia’s brutal invasion, despite statements by the U.S. military that such a move would be high-risk, low-reward.

      The White House is leaning on that position from the military in its opposition to providing the jets, including that Ukraine does not really need the aircraft. But Biden already ceded to pressure from Congress to take a tougher stance against Russia multiple times since the war started. And dozens more members from both parties Sunday called on the president to help Ukraine get its hands on the Polish fighter jets President Volodymyr Zelenskyy is petitioning for.

      “We, the 58 members of the Problem Solvers Caucus, urge continued U.S. commitment to the sovereignty of Ukraine and the freedom of the Ukrainian people in the face of Russia’s ongoing invasion,” the moderate, bipartisan House Problem Solvers Caucus (PSC) said Sunday. “We strongly believe that the U.S. must provide additional defense materiel to Ukrainians protecting their nation.””

    1119. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      Hopefully when Trump is president he can reverse Biden’s act of cowardly appeasement of Putin.

      The main reason Ukraine gave up on joining NATO is there never was an invitation extended by NATO. Instead NATO cheered and egged on the Ukraine from the sidelines.

      In the future NATO should invite the Ukraine to join, and Ukraine should disregard any agreement obtained under duress by Putin, and accept the invitation.

      March 15, 2022 at 10:35 pm
      The intelligence services of the US, UK, Germany, Israel and France all agreed. Tgca and Wes always dodge that fact.

      Let’s look at this, Bitter. You claim the intelligence agencies had some of godlike clairvoyance to determine Saddam had WMDs.

      To cover for why no such WMDs ever surfaced after the invasion, you claim Saddam had them moved.

      If then our intelligence agencies were so omniscient they determined Saddam was indeed this armed, why couldn’t they pinpoint where Saddam supposedly moved them?

      You can’t have it both ways, Bitter. Pick a narrative and stick with it. They’re either all-knowing or limited in their knowledge. If they couldn’t determine where the weapons were, then that automatically impeaches the credibility of their claims, your attempts to cover for them notwithstanding.

      You of course ignore the political reasons for the invasion, among them Saddam’s threats to Israel before the first Gulf War and GWB’s determination to expand the War on Terror after the fall of the Taliban. You also pretend to forget the Democrats who voted with Bush on the war either hailed from places he ran well in or had constituents directly affected by 9/11 who were eager for retribution after the attacks. That’s incredibly inconvenient for your narrative of course, thus explaining why you fail acknowledge it ever.

    1122. Wes says:

      Of course GWB himself admitted the intelligence on Iraq was bad. That was of course an attempt to absolve himself of culpability for the failure in Iraq, but at least years later, he admitted something akin to reality.

    1123. jason says:

      All the revisionist BS doesn’t change the fact GWB was right in removing Saddam.

    1124. jason says:

      Tgca conveniently leaves out that Saddam was responsible for 1 million deaths in a war he started with Iran, that he used WMD against not only Iran but his own people while killing at least 300,000, he invaded Kuwait and killed another 30,000 on his way to threatening Saudi Arabia and cornering the world’s oil supply, he lobbed SCUD missiles into populated areas of Israel and Saudi Arabia with the intent of killing civilians, he caused the world’s worst ecological disaster by setting fire to 700 oil wells, he was financing terrorists in Israel by paying suicide bomber families, he wouldn’t allow inspections to ascertain he didn’t have WMD, he stole billions from the oil for food program to buy arms and palaces while people in Iraq starved.

      But, hey, for some morons here he was “contained” and “not a threat”, while every intelligence service in the world disagreed.

      GWB’s best justification for removing Saddam was when he said “trusting in the sanity of Saddam Hussein is not an option”.

      He was right.

    1125. jason says:

      Ok, another morning and The Putin Appeaser excuse list on why it is ok for Putin to recreate the Soviet Union and slaughter tens of thousand Ukrainians and displace millions of them has grown further.

      1) Putin is VERY powerful militarily, he would “kick our butts”.
      2) Putin is VERY weak militarily, he poses no threat so why worry
      3) Putin has nukes, so his aggression has to passively accepted
      4) Russians and Ukrainians are one people, and thus should be made to live ever happily as Putin determines
      5) Zelensky = Stalin, so the Ukrainians deserve to be slaughtered for electing him
      6) Putin is just up to a little mischief, move on
      7) Ukraine is far away, we have our own border to worry about, let sleeping dogs lie.
      8) We should do something, but Biden is President, so we should do nothing. Maybe when we get a better President, we can do something.
      9)Ukraine didn’t join NATO 30 years ago, so for that they should have their sovereignty violated, their country destroyed, and their population slaughtered.
      10) There are Russian speakers in the Ukraine, they have to be re-incorporated into Russia for “cultural reason.
      11) We need to avoid “friction” with Russia and “alienating” Russia.
      12) Kissinger opposes NATO membership for Ukraine.

      What will today bring? Maybe CDM will be back and demote Putin from “mischievous” to “prankster”, you never know? But for sure new excuses for appeasing Putin and killing more Ukrainians are in the offing. Stay tuned.

      1154 and 1155 prove Jadon is a warmonger.

      So the US solely determines what dictators to take out and decides it’s ok to kill hundreds of thousand to save a million in the future even though there is no proof Saddam was going to kill another million because he lacked the WMD stock piles that the US previously helped him stock.

      Please tell Iraqis we’re gonna save you by killing many of you but you’ll thank us in the long run.

      Why doesn’t the US invade North Korea then? Millions have died under that regime?

      Why doesn’t the US invade Russia? Tens of millions have died under their leaders?

      Why doesn’t the US invade China? Millions have died under their regime?

      Why not Cuba, in its own back yard?

      Jadon is like the parent of a bad child who no matter what will excuse their behavior away and take no responsibility because their blinded by loyalty to their child.

      Luckily, most of the world knows the US F*CKED up big time and does not want the US going it alone anymore and destabilizing territories.

      The US will forever be tarnished with a phony war and illegally invading another country.

      The UN itself called the invasion illegal. In other words, the US committed war crimes and created a humanitarian aid crisis that it itself accuses other countries of doing.

      The only reason the US hasn’t been charged with war crimes is because of its economic clout.

      Any other country that did what the US did in Iraq 2 would be charged with war crimes.

      Perhaps the world might revisit that some day and charge GWB and Cheney with war crimes…but I doubt it though unless Amerika loses its economic clout and superpower status.

    1127. Wes says:

      I like how Jason calls the incontrovertible facts that there no WMDs and that GWB himself blamed the invasion on bad intelligence “revisionist BS.”

      It of course doesn’t change the fact that GWB was an absolute moron who launched a completely unnecessary war he failed after hundreds of thousands of people died unnecessarily because of his vanity project.

    1128. Bitterlaw says:

      Wes voted for GWB AFTER the Iraq war started. He must have been ok with it then.

    1129. Tgca says:

      1155

      Every intelligence service agreed because most got shared information from the US which such information turned out to be bogus, in my view, much of it probably fabricated so I agree with you the US misled other nations into agreeing the intelligence was “solid” when it was not.

      Most of the world also agreed the US should not invade Iraq so you can’t have it both ways.

      The US could only get 4 of 15 members on the security council to side with it. 75% disagreed with the US, and probably the same if not more worldwide so let that sink in too.

      Even our closest ally and a friend, Canada did not approve of the invasion, as did not Germany and France.

      Our own SoS Colin Powell believes the CIA data was bogus, though he says it nicely by stating “I was told the CIA data was solid“ and it was not. That sounds like code for they misled me but I can’t say that publicly.

      Powell and his team were very clear on it and believe it was a mistake to go to the UN and embarrass itself.

      That US debacle will NEVER be forgotten and is still thrown in our face in foreign policy 20 years later and is up there with GWB’s “Mission Accomplished.”

    1130. jason says:

      GWB himself blamed the invasion on bad intelligence “revisionist BS.”

      I doubt GWB “blamed the invasion on bad intelligence”, I think he acknowledged the bad intelligence. I think he knew Saddam had to be removed as long as he wouldn’t come clean on WMD.

    1131. jason says:

      prove Jadon is a warmonger.”

      Coming from Putin’s lapdog, I wear it like a badge of honor.

    1132. Wes says:

      You’re wrong, Bitter. I was never sold on the war. At the time, I was a diehard Republican who felt GWB had handled the response to 9/11 well and helped avert a severe economic downturn via his tax cuts. While there were ominous hints of an erosion of the situation in Iraq, it hadn’t yet hit rock bottom. Thus, I felt justified in voting for him.

      Of course Bush was an empty suit who had the luck for Iraq to be just stable enough to let him narrowly skate to reelection. Shortly after the beginning of his second term, Iraq completely spiraled out of control, and the fact that the Emperor was wearing no clothes became painfully apparent.

      Had Iraq’s descent into a no man’s land happened sooner, GWB wouldn’t have had votes from me and millions of others who helped him else out an undeserved second term.

    1133. Tgca says:

      1158

      Agreed!

      This war was always about ‘Making Papa Bush Proud” and trying a “democracy expanding experiment” in the Middle East.

      It was NEVER really about a threat from WMD which the US financed in the 1st place during the 80s against Iran.

      Hans Blix and the other investigating teams who spent time in Iraq and had better access than the CIA intelligence, and they could find no evidence to support GWB’s claims and they also debunked the satellite imagery.

      But no! GWB had to have his war and was screaming: Did you look under Saddam’s bed Hans? I heard that’s where he keeps his WMD dammit!

    1134. Tgca says:

      1161

      You mean come clean on something that didn’t exist?

      Iran won’t come clean on its NOOKYOOLER program which is a MUCH greater risk than Saddam’s WMD so when does the US invade Iran?

      Is May a good time? Maybe June or July is better.

      What do you think?

    1135. Wes says:

      You can lie all you want about what GWB said, Jason, but I can post his exact words:

      “The biggest regret of all the presidency has to have been the intelligence failure in Iraq,” Bush told ABC television in an interview scheduled for broadcast last night. “I wish the intelligence had been different, I guess.”

      He clearly blames an intelligence failure for Iraq. It’s your lie. Tell it how you want. Just be aware what GWB said is a matter of public record.

    1136. Tgca says:

      1163

      Agreed! I was all for invading Iraq early on because I believed the evidence.p and threat.

      After all the lies came out later, especially Colin Powell telling us how the UN presentation was all a performance for TV and the invasion decision had already been made, and that he was misled on the evidence, I changed my view.

      If I could, I would go to the UN today and apologize for the bad judgment of the US and promise we will do our best to put in controls so it never happens again.

      I would also go to Iraq and apologize to the people there.

      That’s what real leaders do.p! They acknowledge mistakes and take responsibility but I doubt GWB and Cheney care, as they have just fattened their pockets over the years by their friends who benefited or wanted a war.

    1137. Tgca says:

      Do Bitter and Jadon believe the US should apologize to Iraq for the invasion or apologize to the UN?

      Not excuse away the intelligence but actually apologize and say the words to them “WE ARE SORRY?” That would go a long way to Amerika regaling the trust if the world when it comes to foreign policy.

      After all, if the US can apologize for slavery, I’m sure it can muster up an apology for Iraq – only let’s hope it doesn’t take as long or Iraq will get its apology in the year 2150.

      How does the US act militarily without Nato bases?

      I guess your magazines never told you about cruise missiles or aircraft carriers or submarines with SLCMs/LACMs or long range bombers.

      You really need to get your money back and make a bonfire out of your video games.

      That being said, I do think a NFZ would require NATO bases and/or cooperation.

      But “military action” does not require NATO bases, we stealth bombed Kosovo from bases in the US.

      Looks like key conservatives in the Senate agree with me and Henry Kissinger against escalating the situation in Ukraine as Zelenskyy fails to convince Amerika to join this battle now.

      Again, let Europe take the lead here and work with its partners and NATO to determine if a commitment for a NFZ or boots on the ground is needed, and then Amerika can follow is my view.

      Sen. Mike Braun (R-IN)

      United States and NATO military leaders must be reminded to take every precaution to avoid escalations that will result in war with Russia and American soldiers being put in harm’s way.”

      Sen. Roy Blunt (R-MO)

      raised worries that implementing a “no-fly zone” over Ukraine would necessitate American pilots combatting Russia.

      “Anytime you put American pilots and American planes in the sky, with Russian pilots and planes in the sky, you’re really taking a chance that we may engage at a level that I don’t think we’re prepared to.”

      Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY)

      suggested that imposing a “no-fly zone” over Ukraine is a “euphemism” for “’a military battle between Russia and the U.S. in Europe.”

      “It’s not some sort of gentleman’s agreement. It would literally mean Russian planes being shot down by U.S. forces and the retaliation that would ensue.”

      Former Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell

      pointed out that the media is driving much of the hysteria about the Ukrainian war while other wars are also waging.

      “Zelenskyy’s speech missed the chance to explain the difference between Ukraine and Iraq/Afghanistan. Americans are tired of war and its costs. While my heart breaks for the people and I’m angered by Putin, if the media descended on the Congo, our hearts would be broken too.”

      “The question for our leaders is: what is best for Americans? This is their job. We can and do stand for democracy and human rights around the world. But too many politicians think that means we have to act militarily in every crisis. Republican House leaders are too emotional about these serious decisions. They should demand tough diplomacy – America can lead outside of the Pentagon, too.”

      ..and even Dems are on board, here’s one thus far.

      Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-MO)

      reminded that escalations could turn into “World War III,” though “it’s hard not to be moved his words,” he said.

      “It’s kind of sad because he made a request that I don’t think we can honor, which is the no fly zone,” he added.

      So Ukraine wants Biden as a world leader? REALLY!!!

      I thought Zelenskyy was supposed to be media savvy.

      Anyways that’s it! I’m switching sides.

      I’m starting a Go Fund for Russia now.

    1191. Tgca says:

      So Zelenskyy is now asking for a new world organization to address issues and act within 24 hours to resolve them including military support if necessary because current world institutions set up to protect don’t work and we all know it. I assume he’s talking NATO and UN.

      He also wants it not just for war but for natural disasters as well, any crisis.

      So Zelenskyy is calling for a new world order.

      This is the lefts pipe dream! No wonder Nancy invited him to speak before Congress.

      I guess Amerika will fund most of it and Zelenskyy will offer to be the 1st leader of this new world order or maybe he’ll recommend Biden or Soros or Gates or Zuckerberg and it will be headquartered in Ukraine too.

      His words:
      The wars of the past,” Zelensky said, “have prompted our predecessors to create institutions that should protect us from war but they unfortunately don’t work. We see it, you see it. So we need new ones, new institutions, new alliances and we offer them.
      “We propose to create an association, 24 United for peace a union of responsible countries that have the strength and consciousness to stop conflict immediately, to provide all the necessary assistance in 24 hours if necessary, even weapons if necessary, sanctions, military and support, political support, finances and to keep the peace and quickly save the world to save lives.

      “In addition, such Association, such Union could provide assistance to those who are experiencing natural disasters, man made disasters as well, victims to humanitarian crisis or epidemics,” he said.

      1 Cruise missiles would likely need to fly over sovereign territory,like Nato sovereign territory. You need overflight permission. 2 Primarily they’re used against fixed targets,like headquarters buildings,radar stations,airfields( aka” high value targets”)
      Those are in Russia,not Ukraine. Those Russian forces in the field in Ukraine are just that- in the field and moving.
      You’re not suggesting a direct attack on Russia are you? That does mean nuclear war.
      If standoff air launches missiles like SLAMS fired from tactical aircraft are used,you have the same overfishing issues.
      Our total operational inventory of sea launched Cruise missiles is around 3000 . That’s why they’re not used against tanks,artillery etc( low value targets)..
      Nice try. But a useless effort, without Nato agreement. Just thought I’d help out

      As far as policy issues:
      I am not seeing a no-fly zone being instituted, but definitely the Polish MIGs should be delivered to the Ukraine as soon as possible. The strong support that Zelensky and the Ukraine are receiving in the United States will be helpful in the negotiations the Ukrainians are in now with the Russians.

    1197. Tgca says:

      Jadon lies again.

      Remember just the other day I provided a number of Jadon’s own posts where it showed he LIED numerous times. I posted his own words with links. He then went silent on the context and just resumed with name-calling and more distortions.

      Everyone here knows Jadon lies and distorts and then resorts to name calling. It’s his MO. He’s our very own AOC.

      Wes called him on lies this morning.

      Here Jadon lies again saying I called Zelenskyy Stalin.

      My exact quote from 481 disproves that, as I was commenting on him being compared to Reagan. See below.

      I am glad Zelenskyy is standing up against Pootin and hope with the help of the west, he prevails but we need to be very weary of him.

      He reminds me more of Stalin before and during WW2 than Reagan, someone we viewed as corrupt and ultimately not trustworthy but someone we aligned with to fight the evil Germans because at the time we had a common goal and he was less of an enemy to worry about.

      I am not saying Zelenskyy will become an evil dictator like Stalin but he appears corrupt and we should not trust him or prop him up as we may later regret that as we have with so many dictators we aligned ourselves with historically at a point in time.

    1198. Gordon Allen says:

      I was for a NFZ and even boots on the ground if necessary, as long as it was led by Europe and not the US.

      But I’m called a Pootin stooge because I’m weary of Zelenskyy due to his years of corruption and aligning with oligarchs and protecting them.

      I also said we should be weary of him just as we were weary of the early Stalin, and I specifically stated I was not comparing him to Stalin’s dictatorship role but rather as to us working with those we had to but did not trust.

      That got turned into I am a Russian appeaser.

      Some Russian appeaser I am when I have called for NFZ and boots on the ground for a war with Russia as long as a united Europe led it.

    1204. Tgca says:

      With Russian appeasers like me calling for a European led effort of NFZ or boots on the ground, Russia doesn’t need enemies.

      I would gather Pootin would fear me like Trump, not because I’m an EXPERT but because I’m willing to support Europe in a war against him.

      Others Zelenskyy sycophants here are against a war with Russia but they provide no REALISTIC solution to stop Pootin’s aggression.

      But they like political RESOLUTIONS, Reagan Freedom Awards, and speeches by Zelenskyy – especially ones where he praises Biden and wishes he was the world leader, and calling for more lefty organizations to rule the world.

    1205. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      New Pew poll shows strong bipartisan support for Ukraine: 85% favor strict economic sanctions against Russians:

      “Moreover, there are several aspects of U.S. policy toward Russia and Ukraine that draw bipartisan support. While Republicans have previously expressed skepticism about the extent to which the U.S. should work with its allies, nearly three-quarters of Republicans (73%) say that working closely with allies to respond to the Russian invasion is the right approach. An even larger share of Democrats (85%) say the same.

      Americans also are largely united in their support for strict economic sanctions on Russia in response to the invasion of Ukraine. An overwhelming majority of the public (85%) – including similar shares of Republicans (85%) and Democrats (88%) – favors maintaining strict economic sanctions. About six-in-ten Americans (63%) strongly favor strict sanctions.”

    1206. Gordon Allen says:

      a no fly zone worked in Iraq/ME because aircraft encountered were in the random ones and two’s. The Russians have hundreds in the sky. In the Middle east we had air bases with permission to operate from there.
      We would need squadrons of fighters, AWACS aircraft and tankers, big fat targets for Russian SAMS w 150 mile or more range( in Russia”. That’s also where the Russian air bases are.That does nothing for those hit by Russian Cruise missiles
      launched by Russian aircraft- again in Russia.
      otherwise you are attacking Russian targets IN Russia, absent a State of war between us. That is WW 3 for certain, and insane.
      The best idea was the mobile SAM’s located in the ukraine itself-the S-300’s Zelensky mentioned.
      At the Air Force Association held March 3 in Orlando( not just magazines), addressed by the US Air Force Chief of Staff Brown, And Secretary of the Air Force Kendall( the association gets low level speakers-sarc), both said an Air force team
      had recommended earlier providing mobile SAMS to the Ukranians, believing that to be more practical and useful to the Ukranians.
