    Trump Leads Biden Nationally By 3%

    Time for my biweekly check-in. We have a new poll from Emerson College that came out today that has Donald trump ahead of Joe Biden by 3%.

    PRESIDENT – NATIONAL (Emerson)
    Donald Trump (R) 45%
    Joe Biden (D-inc) 425

    It may have been this line form the article that jumped out at me even more.

    Former President Trump has a nearly 12-point favorability advantage over Biden: 59% of voters say they are somewhat or very favorable of Trump, compared with 47% who are somewhat or very favorable of Biden.

    This poll was done March 18-20 among 1023 registered voters.

      1 That’s low. Nobody would vote for Biden,not least because he won’t be running; the chances of him being in a nursing home are higher
      2 There is residual distaste for Trump,fairly or not. The Republican Party would be crazy to go for him,rather than a less encumbered younger candidate.

      mnw, in post #1,987 of the prior thread, you claimed that “[Katie] Britt is on the wrong side of the Lia Thomas issue (“wrong,” that is, if one opposes men competing in women’s sports competitions).”

      What is your source as to your claim that Katie Britt supports men who claim to be women competing in women’s sporting competitions? According to this article from less than a month ago, Britt made the absolute inverse argument to what you claimed that she believes: https://yellowhammernews.com/katie-britt-protecting-womens-sports-about-safety-fairness-this-is-not-about-demonizing-transgender-children/

      Mike Durant Dismisses ‘Never Trump’ Label, Denies Knowledge of Lincoln Project Support, Association

      He says the Lincoln Project once used his photo to illustrate an article about POWs, without his knowledge or permission.

      Durant says this claim about the Lincoln Project is being made by unidentifiable mystery PACs.

      To think he’s a secret Never Trumper, you’d have to believe everything he’s ever actually SAID or WRITTEN is a pure lie.

      I read his autobiography, & also JD Vance’s. I concluded that Durant is the genuine liberal-hating real deal, & that Vance is a fraud.

      Huh, I knew you were a moron, but my litmus test comments have to do with people running for office or in office.

      So I could still vote for someone who didn’t agree with me on Ukraine is what it means.

      And yes, you qualify 100% as a Putin Appeaser.

      “Porn star Stormy Daniels has promised to defy a court ruling ordering her to pay nearly $300,000 in former President Donald Trump’s attorneys’ fees over her failed defamation lawsuit.

      Daniels, 43, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, tweeted Monday she won’t honor Friday’s federal appeals court ruling that likely ends the legal feud between her and Trump stemming from an alleged sexual encounter between the two in 2006.

      “I will go to jail before I pay a penny,” the adult film star pledged.”

      Gordon predicted that Russia would not invade Ukraine. He also predicted that the US military would get their “butts kicked” in a military confrontation with Russia. Maybe he forgets that he made those predictions.

      As for points for Jason, he does not merit any for being compared to Ted Cruz since he is a big critic of Cruz.

    36. Phil says:

      There is an extensive artlcle in Gateway Pundit from January 12th on Mike Durant entitled “Trojan Horse CandidateWaging War on Conservatives in Alabama”. I would encourage any of you to Google it. It’s quite detailed regarding his past and the donors behind him. If you read it and come away with the belief that you can trust this guy then I don’t know what to tell you. It makes no mention of the Lincoln Project. His other connections as well as what he has privately told donors is scary enough.

    37. mnw says:

      38 Phil

      We just disagree.

      I read The Gateway Pundit article you reference several weeks ago. However, I refuse to click on the Stormfront website, with an apparently similar Durant hit piece.

      Because The Gateway Pundit is STL-based & does a lot of local political reporting, I’ve read a lot of their articles over the years, not just the latest ones about Mike Durant. I’ve never liked Gateway Pundit & consider their article about Mike Durant to be a smear job.

      I also strongly disagree with you that GOP candidates for Congress in NV have no chance at all & might as well not even file.

      I’m hoping we can keep this discussion civil. I respect many of your past posts, esp about TX.

      This is my last response to you concerning Durant. I understand your position. Neither one of us votes in AL, & I’m not making any donations to anyone anywhere until after the primaries– not even Vicky Hartzler.

      When Russia invaded the Ukraine, the assumption was that the Russians would be in Kiev in a matter of days. The U.S. even offered to fly Zelensky out of the Ukraine to safety. I was scoffed at when I stated the Ukrainians would fight.

      Now it is a stalemate. It is an amazing outcome. To say the Ukrainians are actually losing is nonsense. Putin stated at the time of invasion that Ukraine was part of Russia, and he planned to merge it with Russia. That appears not likely to happen now.

      “Russian forces have not staged any large assaults this week, and have been digging in and reinforcing defensive positions, according to the latest assessment from the Institute for the Study of War.

      The think tank’s assessment echoes what we heard from the American Department of Defense on Tuesday, which said that Russian troops remain bogged down by logistical difficulties.

      The Kremlin continues to downplay the effect of sanctions on the Russian economy, the think tank’s authors state.”

      Pentagon: Russian forces are short “on food, fuel and winter gear. A U.S. Department of Defense official said during a closed briefing at the Pentagon on March 22 that some Russian troops had been ‘taken out of the fight’ by frostbite due to a lack of warm clothes. The official also noted that Russian warships are running out of fuel. Nearly a month into the war, Russia’s advance on Ukraine has appeared to largely stall across multiple fronts as it struggles to achieve significant military objectives.”

    44. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      “Satellite imagery shows Russia removing military aircraft from a key airport. Russia has withdrawn most of its helicopters from a strategic Chornobayivka airport in southern Ukraine’s Kherson Oblast, according to satellite images provided by space imaging company Planet Labs. According to the New York Times, Ukrainian forces attacked the Kherson airport, inflicting considerable damage to Russian equipment. Russian ground troops appear to still control the airport.”

      NYC didn’t watch Tucker. Now that he is repeating Kremlin talking points on Fox and featured regularly on Russian propaganda TV NYC has become an avid watcher.

      Not surprising either.

    49. jason says:

      To say the Ukrainians are actually losing is nonsense”

      I agree the current outcome is better than expected. But that is not winning a war.

      If your country is invaded by a neighboring country by 200k troops and you cannot expel them, large sections are under occupation, your air force and military bases are bombed and mostly destroyed, your cities are under siege and its citizens suffering untold hardships, your economy and basic infrastructure is ruined, you have tens of thousands of dead and wounded, and a quarter of your population is displaced in a humanitarian disaster of epic proportions, you are not “winning”.

    50. jason says:

      Gordon predicted that Russia would not invade Ukraine. He also predicted that the US military would get their “butts kicked” in a military confrontation with Russia. Maybe he forgets that he made those predictions.”

      But you have to admire the chutzpah when he says I was wrong on Ukraine.

      I consistently said don’t think the Russians won’t invade with “only” 150K+ troops and don’t think they only want the Donbas region, they want to recreate the Soviet Union and for that they need to install a puppet government in Ukraine. I also said don’t overestimate how “formidable” they were and disputed the notion they were “stronger than we were” and would “kick our butts”.

      I am not surprised I was right, I don’t get all my information from magazines and video games.

      Oops, I hadn’t noticed that Robbie hadn’t reported President Trump’s endorsement withdrawal already. Funny, Robbie hadn’t participated in any discussions of the AL Senate race, despite several polls being released recently, but saw fit to chime in to make fun of Trump having endorsed a loser. Somehow, I was able to state several days ago that President Trump has a mixed record on endorsements despite his main goal being to claim that his endorsees won because of him, so he generally endorses frontrunners with a sprinkling of challengers to anti-Trump incumbents, and I didn’t sound like a Democrat shill while doing so. I remember when Robbie was a moderate Republican, not a Democrat hack, but those days are long gone.

    58. Phil says:

      I have to admit, I was very skeptical that Putin would launch a full invasion of Ukraine. I assumed he’d move on the eastern portion but felt the economic downside would be just too costly for him to go full throttle. Now he is completely stuck in quicksand. What a disaster. He can’t win (doesn’t mean he loses) but any withdrawal now is something this egomaniac can’t accept. So……we have a protracted bloody stalemate….which is sucking the life out of Russia. The war will only get more costly for him as time rolls on.

      I will go to my grave believing Putin would not have moved with Trump in the WH instead of Biden. Weakness has consequences. Huge consequences.

      “Longtime Putin Advisor Abandons Russian Leader and Leaves Country Over Ukraine War

      Russian President Vladimir Putin does not have the full support of the Russian people when it comes to his war on Ukraine. That’s been very apparent since the beginning of the war, and many have spoken out against the former KGB leader since the first bullet was fired.

      It would also appear that even those close to Putin do not support this war, and close advisors are packing it up and walking away.

      According to Reuters, longtime advisor Anatoly Chubais has resigned from his post as the Kremlin’s special envoy and fled the country. While there have been others, he is the highest-profile person to do as Chubai has had a long storied history at the Kremlin. He once served as Boris Yeltsin’s chief of staff and would go on to be Putin’s special representative. In 2020 he was charged with “achieving goals of sustainable development.”

    63. jason says:

      Has CDM been by yet?

      I hear he thinks we have been way too tough on Putin, so he would like us to consider “meany” when describing him.

      Mitt Romney was a “moderate Republican” in 2012. Amoral Scumbag was here 24/7 trashing him, his family, his business, his life and his honor.

      Rubio was a “moderate Republican”. It didn’t matter, whichever one he worried might actually get on the ballot he would immediately trash. He knew Jeb had zero chance, so no worried there. He trashed Rubio for months and then pretended to be upset when Trump won the nomination. When Rubio dropped out leaving Kasich as the only “moderate”, Amoral Scumbag trashed him too.

      Maybe McKinley will edge out Mooney in the primary (and, you’re correct, whoever wins the primary will win the general), but if he does it will be because the geography of the state meant that Mooney’s CD had to be split among the two remaining CDs when WV lost a House seat, not because McKinley is more conservative than Mooney. I don’t know from where you get the 92% figure, and I don’t know how each of the candidates voted on Trump’s priorities, but I’m pretty sure that Mooney is more conservative than McKinley and has had a more conservative voting record in Congress.

      The genesis for this was McAuliffe telling the voters that parents should leave things to the educators.

      My impression was she is not a deep thinker, but to her credit she didn’t seem to want to give the moonbats a lot of red meat regarding “a living constitution”, “unlimited rights to abortion”, “international law prevailing”, “curtailment of religious freedom”, “packing the court” etc. Whatever she really thinks, she was careful not to stray too far from “the founding fathers”, what she said about their intent seemed pretty standard.

    113. Wes says:

      The problem for many of Trump’s endorsees, Tina, isn’t his endorsement. It’s that too often they seem to think his endorsement is all they need.

      Mo Brooks is a textbook case of this. He received Trump’s endorsement and assumed the race was over. Meanwhile, Britt and Durant actually campaigned and outflanked him, led to Trump’s withdrawing the endorsement.

      Dave Perdue in next-door GA is a similar case:

      Because of the aftermath of the 2012 election, Trump was fuming at the Governor and readily endorsed Perdue’s challenge. For awhile, Perdue was competitive. Unfortunately for him his own lazy campaigning–which was a contributing factor to his vulnerability and defeat in the 2020 Senate race–undermined him. Meanwhile, Kemp signed the election reform law, which has proved popular in the state despite Dems’ attempts to paint the reforms as an attempt to reopen Auschwitz. Kemp has put daylight between himself and Perdue and may win without a runoff.

      In contrast to those examples, Herschel Walker in the GA Senate race has avoided any serious gaffes while courting both Trump and Establishment Republicans. Walker is already competitive in the general and may win the primary decisively despite some disturbing but unproven allegations against him.

      Essentially if more of Trump’s endorsees would follow the Walker model rather than the Brooks-Perdue model and work hard rather than coasting on an endorsement, they’d probably win.

    114. Tina says:

      Oh, I agree Wes, or sometimes Trump endorses too quickly.

      I agree with wes’ analysis, but I think Brooks was a bad candidate to begin with, likely to self destruct with or without Trump’s endorsement.

      I am sorry to see Kemp win the nomination as now seems likely. While he is better than Abrams, obviously, I do blame him somewhat (I blame the SOS scumbag more) for the loss of the 2 GA senate seats, I think his failure to at least pursue the most flagrant violations that led to Trump’s exceedingly narrow loss (and Perdue’s failure to win 50% on election night) discouraged a lot of R voters who stayed home during the runoff. I am afraid he got bullied by the Dems instead of doing the right thing.

      He has made up for it somewhat with the new GA election law, granted. Still, I thought Perdue did a good job in the senate and deserved to win back the seat. But wes’ point that he seems to have considered Trump’s endorsement enough to win is well taken.

      “NATO estimates that up to 15,000 Russian troops have been killed since the Kremlin’s attack on Ukraine began last month, with as many as 40,000 dead, wounded, taken prisoner or missing.

      The alliance arrived at those figures based on information from Ukrainian officials, Western intelligence and information gleaned from Russia through official channels or unintentionally, a senior military official from NATO told The Wall Street Journal and The Associated Press.

      NATO estimates that roughly 7,000 to 15,000 Russian soldiers have been killed since the attack started on Feb. 24, a major blow to Moscow, which sought to decapitate the Ukrainian government in a matter of days.”

      7000 to 15000? That is a huge difference, so take it with a grain of salt. I would be embarrassed to put out a number like that because it only damages your credibility.

      But even if it is “only 7000”, that would be 3 times the US losses in 20 years in Afghanistan, and it would mean at least 25000 wounded. Plus let’s say there are 5000 captured.

      If the idea was the 150k-200k would topple the Ukrainian govt in 2 weeks, then there probably was not a lot of redundancy in the planning, so a “hit” of 40000 lost killed, wounded or captured will seriously degrade an invasion force of 150-200k if those numbers were accurate.

Republicans urged the court to block the plan and instead revert to boundaries drawn up by the GOP-controlled Legislature. Those were rejected by the state Supreme Court, which ordered election officials to follow the governor’s map instead.

      Jason, President Trump couldn’t do that, because he doesn’t want to admit that (i) his endorsement of a candidate is not enough to propel him to victory and (ii) he bases endorsements in part on the candidate’s likelihood of victory and not on being truest to the MAGA agenda. Yes, a humbler person would be more forthcoming as to his criteria for endorsement, wouldn’t contrive obviously false reasons for withdrawing his endorsement, and would avoid burning bridges unnecessarily, but no one ever accused Donald Trump of being humble.

      Not sure I buy that Selzer poll wrt Suburban women. Seems like a real outlier

      The poll has four groups by location (% of respondents): City (30%), Suburban (28%), Town (17%), and Rural (25%).

      Overall Biden JA by location
      City (34/52)
      Suburb (46/38)
      Town (32/52)
      Rural (22/70)

      He is way underwater with ALL groups but suburbs and that is only due to suburban women. I find it hard to imagine that group is so much more supportive of Biden than city women.

    156. jason says:

      As of now I would advise DeSantis not to run against Trump, I think it would probably destroy his viability in the future and damage the chance of either one winning the GE. Nor is a Trump vs. DeSantis fight in the interest of the R party. If the primaries were held today, Trump would crush DeSantis as every preference poll I have since indicates. Since Trump does not play nice, even if contrary to all polling he did lose, he would drive DeSantis’ negatives way up and create a huge rift in the R base that would be very difficult to mend.

      But a year is an eternity in politics, the polling might be very different then, and DeSantis might well be in a stronger position then. He will have become a 2 term governor and presumably will have even more accomplishments, while Trump will be a year older and year longer away from the Presidency. Time favors DeSantis, not Trump.

      DeSantis is really the only “star” in the R party right now besides Trump. If Trump announced he wasn’t running, DeSantis would be the odds on favorite for the nomination. It would be a tragedy for the R party and a boon for the Dems if they destroyed each other.

      Putin Appeaser Tgca will be here soon to compare Zelensky to Stalin and call him a communist.

      “The War of Russia is not only the war against Ukraine. Its meaning is much wider. Russian started the war against freedom as it is, this is only the beginning for Russia on the Ukrainian land. Russia is trying to defeat the freedom of all people in Europe; of all the people in the world. It tries to show that only crude and cruel force matters. It tries to show that people do not matter as well as everything else that make us people. That’s the reason we all must stop Russia. The world must stop the war.

      I thank everyone who acts in support of Ukraine in support of freedom; but the war continues. The acts of terror or against peaceful people go on one month already. That long. It breaks my heart, hearts of all Ukrainians, and every free person on the planet. That’s why I ask you to stand against the war.

      Starting from March 24th, exactly one month after the Russian invasion. From this day and after them, show your standing. Come from your offices, your homes, your schools, and universities. Come in the name of peace. Come with Ukrainian symbols to support Ukraine, to support freedom, to support life. Come to your squares, your streets. Make yourselves visible and heard. Say that people matter, freedom matters. Peace matters. Ukraine matters from March 24th, in downtowns of your cities, all as one, together who want.

      That sounds more like authoritarian than freedom.

      So I guess Jadon would have no problem if Biden signed an executive order shutting down Fox News and having all news in the US reported by and from the White House only in addition to instructing Schumer and Pelosi to ban the Republican Party from Congress, putting any members under house arrest.

      The DEMs are in yuuge trouble in these BG dists on every issue polled. The terms “condescending” & “arrogant” recur frequently. Now… how could these voters possibly look at Pelosi & Harris & think “condescending”?

      Yes! I knew that and it was wrong when Lincoln did it as well as he violated the US Constitution, and it is a stain on his record rarely discussed and brushed under the rug but historically acknowledged as authoritarian.

      FDR also imprisoned Americans in concentration camps during WW2 simply because they were Asian but he did not do so to German Americans. That was also wrong and the US had to compensate for that decades later.

      How anyone here can claim they’re conservatives but it’s ok for leaders of their preference to act like authoritarians but when leaders they don’t like act like authoritarians it is not ok shows great HYPOCRISY.

And similarly, Ukraine has understood that it’s not going to join Nato any time soon, if at all. But the issues of territory – of what Russia wants to keep remain the most contentious issues of all.

      If you believe the majority can ban the the duly elected minority, that is not freedom or democracy in ANY country.

      So you basically agree that the Constitution can be CANCELLED in a time of crisis, as determined by POTUS alone.

      Many Dems and the MSM called for Pelosi refusing to seat over 100 GOP members of Congress after the claimed Jan 6th insurrection because of their vote on that date. If they clearly believe it was a violation of the Constitution and an effort to overthrow the gubbermint, which many of them believe and so far many courts seem to agree with to this date, by holding people without trial for over a year, then Pelosi could have banned the GOP Congress.

      Are you ok with that?

      Pretty much, yes, I DO agree that in times of existential crisis for the nation, a President CAN prorogue the Constitution. Lincoln & FDR had the consent of Congress for their emergency wartime measures, & I think that’s essential.

      I never objected, & still don’t, to FDR assuming the POWER to intern Japanese Americans, or anybody else he thought might be a fifth columnist– I just think he made a stupid mistake in deciding to USE that power in the way he did.

      As for Zelensky, we just profoundly disagree. His nation is striving to stave off extinction, & I don’t give a ratz adz about alleged corruption right now. That can be addressed after the war, if Ukraine survives.

      So you expect Zelenskyy to make peace with a significant minority in his country that has already denounced the Russian invasion by Zelenskyy now taking away their rights to democratic representation?k and treating them as 2nd class citizens?

      To me that sends the message that Russia is arguing in the 1st that Zelenskyy is persecuting the Russian minority so he is giving Pootin ammunition to use against him.

      That’s like Biden taking away the power of the GOP because he believes they’re a threat to democracy even though no one in the GOP supported the insurrection.

      Perhaps you need to go back to Jan 6th and read the news.

      All over the world it was being screamed that the US was in jeopardy because of an insurrection and the attempt to stop a duly elected president from assuming office.

      I gather that was more concerning to the world than a regional war.

    233. Tgca says:

      MNW

      You also fail to recognize there was no proof these parties were working against Ukraine for Russia.

      The leader of the banned opposition party actually came out against Russia for the invasion.

      …and you keep talking about the future, Zelenskyy was already corrupt and putting people under around house arrest and letting criminal oligarchs back into the country free of prosecution after they previously fled under the past past administrations to avoid prosecution years before the war.

      There are numerous corruption complaints against Zelenskyy, hence why he was low in the polls before the war.

      Have you read ANY of the corruption on Zelenskyy? Mainly liberal European news organizations that are hardly friends of Russia reported on it going back a couple of years.

      If you wish to support his authoritarian actions NOW because Ukraine is at war that says a lot about your commitment to freedom and democracy to me.

      …and you make no logical argument why he canceled the media as well. Where was the threat when most of the vast majority of the media was pro-Ukraine.

      You are buying into western propaganda just as much as you guys claim others are buying into Russian propaganda.

      I don’t see how Zelenskyy will make peace with the pro-Russian coalitions now that he has banned their voice even though they did NOT support the Russian invasion.

      He may have guaranteed himself a FOREVER civil war or he may have to give them independence which plays into Pootin’s hands.

      To me Zelenskyy made a strategic error in behaving like Pootin to millions of his own people.

      Lincoln had no proof whatsoever that Rep. Clement Valandingham (D- IN) was working against the U.S. and for the Confederacy, either. None… because Valandingham wasn’t doing so, at least arguably. Lincoln STILL felt that Valandingham was a menace to the Union war effort, at that time and in that place.

      I’ll cheerfully confess that I have a high tolerance for draconian measures during wartime, & that “my commitment to freedom & democracy” in wartime is less that yours.

      If everything you say about Z & the political opposition, & about Ukraine’s media is true & correct, then Z may have made a mistake in taking the emergency actions he took, as you suggest. He may have made a “strategic error,” as you say.

      But I have to trust his judgment at this point.

      One other thing: I don’t have the slightest problem with making common cause with an outright monster, such as Stalin. Cruel necessity. FDR & Churchill knew all about Stalin’s Katyn Forest massacre in Poland and simply turned a blind eye to it. Katyn Forest makes what Z has done look like pitifully small beer.

      If you have to trust Zelenskyy’s judgment on banning all media and banning opposition parties that have already denounced the Russia invasion WITHOUT ANY PROOF they’re colluding with Russia, then you should be willing to trust Pelosi’s judgment to ban all house members who supported Jan 6th so called insurrection, as evidently there must be truth to it because the courts have upheld detaining people in jail for 15 months without a trial or evidence.

      You also have to trust the judgment of MSM, Big Tech and the Dems to suppress news during COVID because it’s misinformation and a million people in the US have now died to date so we can’t risk misinformation action killing people which is their argument.

      If banning the news is all about saving lives, thousands have died in Ukraine while over a million have died in the US. Which is worse and a priority to the US?

      I’ll accept that you agree Pelosi and Biden have good reason to act to ban political opposition and the news media because US democracy and millions of lives are at risk.

      My mouth was left agape with some of her answers.

      –When does life begin?
      should have said “it BEGINS when the sperm fertilizes the egg. Now when that life is perceived by the legal system to ‘begin’ and have “rights” and constitutional protections is a thorny issue and something the judicial system has been wrestling with for decades.”
      ________________________________________________

      –What is the definition of a woman?
      should have said “a female human is any human being who is born with female body parts like a vagina and a womb and the chemical DNA of a female.”

      they SHOULD have asked her that if she could not define a woman, then would it be legitimate to say that perhaps SHE was not a woman and Biden had NOT actually picked an AA woman nominee for SCOTUS?
      _____________________________________________

      –Should illegal aliens have the right be vote?
      she answered well that the Constitution says you have to be a U.S. citizen to vote.

      BUT when asked if she knew that legal and illegal (non-U.S. citizens) were being allowed to vote in some cities in NY state (in city elections) SHE SAID SHE WAS NOT AWRE OF THAT!

      If it was true that on Jan 6th it was insurrection, that would be a much greater threat to the world than Ukraine in a regional war that is being reported that Russia is having much difficulty winning to date.

      Russia has proven without their NOOKYOOLER capability, they are incapable of rebuilding Mother Russia at this time and though they have started an ugly vicious war, I think Europe is realizing more each day it’s not a threat to them so they’re doing the minimum to help Ukraine.

      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.

      The difference should be apparent. We should oppose what this one individual is “advocating” but no Russians have been castrated, this is not Ukrainian policy.

      Meanwhile the Russians are actively murdering thousands of people and exiling millions and forcibly deporting thousands more to prison camps.

      Even an idiot like you should be able to tell the “difference”.

    280. jason says:

      McCain was a POW. That is a fact! There is no shame in that.

      Some will say he is a hero because he endured pain and suffering so that is fine but he is not regarded as a traditional war hero like JFK who is distinguished with doing heroic acts of saving lives, as history records it.

      He was used as a token POW in DC, just like many others. That is a fact!

      McCain did not win his political seat based on experience or knowledge? It was based on sympathy! That is a fact! There is no shame in that either since many in history have done the same.

      McCain always ran on his war record. Unfortunately, it did not help him in 2008 and we got stuck with Obama partly because he was such a weak candidate and partly because another warmonger, or war criminal to many around the world, GWB mismanaged the country into a crisis.

      McCain was not totally right in the head, as has been suggested by many for years, especially those that followed his career or knew him and worked with him. Perhaps it was because of his war experiences. Doesn’t change that he often appeared disturbed in his rants and outbursts. Who calls their wife a “c*nt” of front of reporters?

      He was a petty, vindictive, abusive man who often hid behind his war image when criticized. Again, maybe because of his war experiences but that is who he was and why he was not highly regarded by many in the GOP and he did not generate enthusiasm to turn out enough votes as another GOP candidate could have.

      He was not a very accomplished politician. That is a fact!

      He betrayed his constituents and the GOP when he made a spectacle of himself as the Dems useful idiot when he was the deciding vote in ObamaCare because he’s wanted to stick it to Trump.

      I’m glad the GOP is rid of him because he’d be betraying the party to this day with his petty vindictiveness.

      How many truly believe he would not have voted to impeach Trump or stood in line with the Dems on Jan 6th in their calls of insurrection?

      His character can be called into question.
      He served his country well and suffered as a POW.

      BOTH CAN BE TRUE!!!

    284. jason says:

      Warmonger Jadon is becoming unstable like his politically unaccomplished hero McCain”

      I didn’t even know McCain was “unstable” let alone “politically unaccomplished”.

    285. jason says:

      He was not a very accomplished politician. That is a fact!”

      Sorry, that is asinine.

      He was a VERY accomplished politician, which is different from the fact you didn’t agree with his positions.

      If someone who is elected twice to the House and 6 times to senate, is tremendously influential in his party, and is chosen by the voters of his party to the nominee for President is not an “accomplished politician” than I don’t know what is.

    286. jason says:

      “that is who he was and why he was not highly regarded by many in the GOP ”

      By “many” I agree. We will also agree there are many idiots in the GOP, so I hardly think that is a mark against McCain.

      But more importantly he was highly regarded by his constituents in Arizona who elected him to public office 8 times.

    287. jason says:

      McCain was not totally right in the head,”

      Heh, Tgca would know…

    288. Wes says:

      Tgca, with a combination of Lehman Brothers and GWB’s 29% popularity rating in late 2008, do you honestly think ANY Republican had chance of generating enthusiasm and beating Obama?

    289. Phil says:

      301

      Knock it off.

    290. Wes says:

      Say what you will about Obama, but before he outed himself as a petty narcissist during his presidency, he was a top-notch campaigner who organized GOTV operations in literally every state and appealed to both traditionally Dem voting blocs and people who wouldn’t ordinarily vote for Dems.

      His presidency was not as advertised, so his reelection bid, while successful, was nowhere near as grand or sweeping as his first run for the White House.

      It’s hard for me to see how Obama could possibly have lost in 2008 given his own campaign skills at the time and the confluence of events that made the national GOP toxic to many voters that year.

    291. Tgca says:

      So Jadon doesn’t think castrating prisoners is a war crime. Good to know.

      The Geneva Conventions might disagree, as would probably 95% of people in the world.

      I guess Jadon doesn’t think American soldiers who went off the deep end and raped and killed women and children during Vietnam was not a war crime either because when Amerika does something, it’s always justified but when others do it, it’s evil and a war crime.

      Got it!

    292. Tgca says:

      309 agreed! Obama had a good tight-lipped team too.

      I remember a few GOP women I worked with thinking he was so calm and reassuring.

      Obama could not help but look good against an old bitter man who thought he could run on his war record once again. People decided to move on from that in their voting though in 2008, perhaps because of warmonger GWB and his failure in Iraq.

      People did not want another warmongering adventurer in the WH. Believe me, McCain would have found another useless war to get us in had he been elected.

    293. Tgca says:

      306

      Yes! I would know because it was widely reported in both political circles in DC.

    294. Bitterlaw says:

      Tgca just keeps digging. McCain was not a traditional war hero? He flew multiple combat missions before being shot down and captured. JFK? He managed to get his fast PT boat cut in half by a slow Japanese ship. He saved lives put at risk by his poor command. He would have been court-martialed except for his dad.

    297. Tgca says:

      307

      I caveated the failures of GWB being also responsible for that loss due to the ILLEGAL invasion of Iraq on very questionable evidence and the hundreds of thousands he in essence murdered. But make no mistake, McCain was a terrible candidate, one of the worst.

      His VP drew more audiences than him and was one of the only reasons he got as much support as he did among conservatives.

      He showed he was not up to the job when he tried to pull the media stunt of halting his campaign to rush back to DC. It was an act of desperation and it completely obliterated him, as he was widely mocked for it.

      We all rooted for and wanted Mac to win, given the alternative but it was hard to be enthusiastic for him.

      Mac was just not presidential material and the country knew it.

      Case closed!

    298. jason says:

      So Jadon doesn’t think castrating prisoners is a war crime. Good to know.”

      I suppose it would be.

      Have any prisoners been castrated?

      Meanwhile, Tgca gives Putin a pass for mass deportation of civilians to prison camps in Russia.

      The hypocrisy is astounding.

    299. Wes says:

      I don’t disagree, Tg, even though I ultimately refused to vote for McCain in 2008. I just don’t think any Republican had a chance that year. GWB had dragged the party’s public image too far down for a Republican to win. Of those who ran, McCain was probably the best option, but that’s like saying a full debridement is better than a full amputation. Neither is a truly appealing prospect, though one is rather less damaging than the other.

    300. jason says:

      John MCCain

      War hero and media whore

      Both facts.”

      I can live with that.

      “Unaccomplished politician”? No.

      “Not right in the head”? No.

      “Warmongering adventurer”? No.

      “Not traditional war hero”? No.

      “Not Presidential material” No. (especially since he ran against a glorified community rabblerouser who definitely was not presidential material.

    301. Tgca says:

      Ummm…flying combat missions was his job, as it was for many others. Doing your job does not automatically make you a hero. It’s the acts you do that distinguish you as a hero.

      Outstanding courage and acts of selflessness to save others makes you a hero.

      In Bitter’s mind, anyone that signs up in the military is a hero even though less than 10% ever see combat or are in harms way. Chicago and Detroit police probably commit more deeds of heroism than the average enlisted person today.

      58,000 people died in a Vietnam serving their country. Each one of them that stood down an enemy and died is a hero so McCain will have to stand in line behind them for hero status, as I honor the dead as heroes before the survivors.

    302. Tgca says:

      317

      More LIES from Jadon.

      I’ve been rooting from Day 1 for Pootin to get his butt kicked back to Russia.

      We all know Pootin is a man of evil deeds.

      We don’t know if any Russian prisoners have been castrated yet. We do know the Dr who is responsible for leading the effort to tend to the wounded in Ukraine advocated that in a TV interview. We also know there was media concern over that so if it didn’t happen, that’s a good thing but he DID advocate and told the interviewer he was recommending that to his staff. So whether it was him talking big for the camera or actually implementing it, is not known…but we know what he said.

      Good to know Jadon supports gubbermint sponsored lead medical professionals advocating for torture of prisoners.

    303. Wes says:

      I’m guessing that Ukrainian doctor is a fan of Game of Thrones.

    304. Tgca says:

      318. Wes

      I think we’re splitting hairs here. We agree on the bigger picture.

      My point is that for years Mac treated many in the GOP like chit and the roosters came home as many refused to support him in 2008. I did not realize you did not vote for him in 2008.

      Though GWB and the historic 3-term POTUS curse were probably the biggest factors in the 2008 election, I’m not sure Mac could have pulled it off at any other time either. People were just not enthusiastic about him or trusted him.

      His tenure in politics was always about his war record and not any great intellect or significant political accomplishments. Getting elected in a safe district is not a political accomplishment to me, otherwise Ted Kennedy, Pelosi, Feinstein and a host of other lefties would then prove to be accomplished as well.

The top court is supposed to look at existing law, and rule on constitutionality issues. If the majority of people in America want to change the LAWS, then that is done through the election process of members of congress and then congress must vote to change the laws.”

Scientists agree there is no sufficient way to clearly define what makes someone a woman, and with billions of women on the planet, there is much variation.”

      “Russia to focus war on eastern Ukraine – Russian army chief
      The chief of the Russian army says Russia will now focus its main war effort on the “complete liberation” of the eastern Ukrainian Donbas region.

      The defence ministry said Russia had been considering two options for its “special military operation” – one covering the whole of Ukraine and one focusing on the Donbas.

      The comments – carried by Russian state news agencies – hinted at a possible downgrading of Russia’s war aims. Russian forces have met strong resistance in the north of Ukraine and around Kyiv.

      Sergey Rudskoy, head of the main operational department of the General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces, said 93% of Luhansk oblast and 54% of Donetsk oblast was under Russian control.””

      Zzzzzz….. was anyone actual castrated and was this ever an official policy of Ukraine against POW? Was it more than an opinion of an official?

      No, so this is a red herring Tgca uses to give Putin a pass on slaughtering thousands of Ukrainians and forced deportations of thousands more to prison camps.

      Now THAT is a war crime.

    321. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      So the Russians are declaring victory, and now can retreat:

      “The main objectives of the first stage of the operation have generally been accomplished,” Sergei Rudskoi, head of the Russian General Staff’s Main Operational Directorate, said in a speech.

      “The combat potential of the Armed Forces of Ukraine has been considerably reduced, which … makes it possible to focus our core efforts on achieving the main goal, the liberation of Donbass.”

      A senior diplomatic source in Moscow described it as a face-saving move and possible prelude to a climb-down by Russia. Its forces have become bogged down and failed to take any major city since invading Ukraine from the north, east and south on Feb. 24.”

    322. Wes says:

      It keeps Dems from drawing Andy Harris out of his district, Dylan, and possibly means Republicans can be competitive in at least one other district.

      341. I am seriously doubting there will be a Russian victory in the Ukraine, so can the posters on the board who predicted it please reassure me?

    324. jason says:

      Depends on how you define “victory”. If victory is defined as successfully invading and occupying large areas of the country, destroying its infrastructure and economy, displacing millions of people and seriously damaging the Ukraine’s military, and ultimately annexing parts of the Ukraine not previously under its control, the Russians have a victory.

      If victory is defined as toppling Zelensky and installing a puppet government over all of the Ukraine, the Russians have so far failed in that objective, and seem unlikely to attain it.

    329. jason says:

      Here is how I would define it.

      Russia successfully invaded Ukraine and caused great damage to its infrastructure and its economy and exiled millions of people. Ultimately it could result in limited territorial gains.

      The economic and political and human cost has been many times what the Russians expected. If the objective was to bully NATO and weaken it, it backfired spectacularly, it has hardened the views of much of the population in NATO countries against Russia. If the objective was to install a puppet government in the Ukraine, that has failed too, at least so far.

      Today the Russians say they will now concentrate on the Donbas. They could have done so at the outset at 1/1000th of the cost.

    330. Tina says:

      Well according to Lil Marco, Russia is no longer seeking to occupy the entire country. Rather, it’s just those Russian controlled areas. However, Lil Marco and his boots just saw this now.

      LOL

      That Russia never intended to occupy more of the Ukraine and install a puppet government.

      This was all a ruse to occupy “Russian controlled areas”.

      Excellent material for tomorrows Putin Appeaser List.

    333. jason says:

      No more than your red herring that folks here are Russian appeasers.”

      I think when you equate an opinion by one official to what Putin has done in Ukraine it qualifies you as a Putin Appeaser.

      GFY.

    334. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      351. The initial Russian aim was to occupy all the Ukraine and absorb it into Russia. That is why the Russians attacked from the north, south and east. They sent a huge armored column to occupy Kiev, attacked Black Sea ports, and attacked Russian speaking Kharkiv. But the attacks failed.

      So now the Russians are just going to try and occupy Donbass. They are now claiming that was their intention all along.

    335. jason says:

      Bitter, did you read Tina’s post?

      The isolationists and Putin Appeasers will now claim Russia invaded Ukraine with 200K troops, placed its major cities under siege, killed tens of thousands, displaced millions, destroyed the Ukraine’s economy and infrastructure, etc. just because they wanted a little land in “Russian occupied areas”.

      You really can’t make this sh-t up.

    336. jason says:

      Yeah, and the Putin Appeasers and isolationists are already going for it like maggots on roadkill.

    338. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      351. So why does Putin need 190,000 troops to occupy “Russian controlled areas”? You might want to think that one out a bit more.

      Hint: A lot of the local Russian speaking inhabitants want to be part of the Ukraine, and they have taken up arms to do so.

    339. jason says:

      I don’t believe “thinking” comes easy to isolationists. They prefer the basic “isolationism good, intervention bad” logic, it avoids any need for further analysis.

    341. Tina says:

      You need to take that up with lil marco. Why did his “analysis” change from occupying all of it to just the Russian controlled areas.

      While Russia could invade, I seem to recall that they could not hold all of Ukraine with 150,000 to 190,000 troops. 40% of them are conscripts.

    342. jason says:

      Maybe NATO is not a “sleeping giant” but Putin definitely woke it up.

      Nobody said they would hold the entire country with that many troops, the objective was to install a puppet regime that would avoid requiring permanent occupation.

      What was wrong was to say they would never invade with that “few” troops.

    344. Tina says:

      I thought the conversation here was 150-000 to 190000 troops was to hold onto all of Ukraine, not that Russia would “never” invade it, especially when Biden said he was ok with an incursion.

      1) Gov. Parson hasn’t joined every other Republican officeholder in MO in calling for G to withdraw;

      2) The comments sections at several conservative blogs scare the beejazus out of me– “G is a victim of a GOPe conspiracy” is the general view;

      3) I sure do want to see some new polling. I want to see a stake driven through the heart of this man’s political career– so far, G just seems to keep coming like Ahnuld in The Terminator.

    349. jason says:

      So Greitens being railroaded again?

      All that those is increase the sympathy vote for him and continue to sow divisions in the MO GOP.

      Btw, I didn’t agree with Meldrim’s assessment that Greitens was not railroaded the first time. The criminal case against him was bogus, there was obvious prosecution misconduct, the “partially nude picture” was not presented, and the charges were correctly dismissed. I call that railroading.

      The fact he was having some kind of kinky consensual relationship in his basement (puhhleeze don’t tell me the woman was forced into his house and his basement) is irrelevant. Let the voters decide if that type of relationship/infidelity is acceptable or not.

      Again, I hope he is not the candidate. But I don’t approve of political hatched jobs either.

      I agree with Tina on Greitens. This is very suspicious.

      His wife signed a custody agreement where he has the majority of custody, and she had no reservations about that. Her sister works with the swamp and now she decides to go public on these matters and concerns about the kids using political operatives.

      1st of all, a mother who tries to destroy her husband publicly in front of his children is a despicable skank. Women often lie and exaggerate claims against men to gain sympathy and gain leverage.

      What kind of mother takes this public and works with his political adversaries to harm him knowing her children see all this?

      I hope her sons turn against her and she loses custody because regardless of his unfaithful relationship, he appears to be a good dad.

      She sounds like a bitter woman that can’t move on and wants to harm her husband by using the kids as her weapon.

      All else in this case does not matter. She is publicly using the kids to hurt him politically. Vile and disgusting vindictiveness of a scorned woman is what this looks like.

      It isn’t just smoke, either!

      I’ve made this point appx a dozen times here & at RRH, & it always gets smiled away & ignored:

      The MO legislature impeached Greitens & issued a report finding the testimony of his principal accuser (the hairdresser) to be “credible.”

      The MO legislature which impeached G, & assessed his principal accuser as “credible,” was (and is) DOMINATED BY AN OVERWHELMINGLY CONSERVATIVE GOP MAJORITY!

      Now, that’s NOT smoke. And all the crud about G being the victim of some sort of frame up by Rove & the GOPe (or somebody) ignores that FACT.

    381. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      381. “150-190,000 troops could NOT successfully invade and occupy the Ukraine. Period.”

      I would agree with this if there was major resistance. However, Putin assumed from the intelligence he received that there would be little to no resistance, and thought he would occupy Kiev within days.

      As Talleyrand said: “It was worse than a defeat, it was a blunder.”

      I would not bet on Putin’s longevity as leader of Russia.

    382. jason says:

      The MO legislature impeached Greitens & issued a report finding the testimony of his principal accuser (the hairdresser) to be “credible.”

      That does not make you guilty of anything.

      And “credible” does not make it true either. This was a married woman having an consensual affair with Greitens in his basement. The abuse and the picture story have never been proven.

      Here is the story. It is obvious they were having an affair, she went to his house “at his urging” and “during the encounter” in the basement. Maybe she is telling the truth, maybe not. But her husband is the one who taped her and blew open the story.

      “Greitens’ former hairdresser, who is identified as K.S. in court documents, testified to a legislative committee that in 2015, months before he started his campaign for governor, Greitens put his hand “all the way up” between her legs during an appointment without her consent. Two weeks later, she went to Greitens’ house at his urging. During an encounter in his basement, she told the committee, Greitens took a partially nude photo of her and threatened to release it if she went public about their relationship. When she broke down crying, he allegedly coerced her into oral sex. “It felt like consent, but, no, I didn’t want to do it,” K.S. recounted to the committee. “Coerced, maybe. I felt as though that would allow me to leave. That’s what he wanted.”

      Draw your own conclusions. I think it is more likely this is an affair gone bad.

    399. Meldrim says:

      Greitens admitted that he tied up his (hairdresser) mistress and took her photo; the only he said/she said aspect to the story had to do with whether he blackmailed her by threatening to release the photo publicly. His campaign also broke state law by fundraising off a donor list from a charity that Greitens had founded; that certainly happened, and the only issue was whether Greitens himself knew about that violation. The MO state legislature, which had a large GOP majority, was set to impeach Greitens when he resigned instead. How the heck was he “railroaded”?

      Greitens is a scumbag, and his past actions to which he has admitted makes me believe his wife’s account over his. He should stay the hell away from elective office, particularly since he would lose a general election that should be impossible for the GOP to lose. Greitens is not Congressman Todd Akin, he’s Judge Roy Moore.

    400. Meldrim says:

      From the Nevada poll that Tina posted in #419:

      “Trump holds 10-point lead among non-Hispanic white voters.”

      “Hispanic voters favor Trump by 19%.”

      That’s impossible. Phil told us that Hispanics were genetically predisposed to vote straight Democrat.

      Phil also explained that Republicans shouldn’t waste their time running for office in Nevada, because it would be impossible for them to win.

      Phil, once again, Phil, instead of your traditional declarations of impending doom, you should consider making the following statement: “The election laws approved by Democrats in Nevada will make it more difficult for Republicans to win statewide or in the three Democrat-leaning congressional districts.”

    401. Tgca says:

      I dunno if Greitens was politically railroaded or not, and I’m not defending whether he should run for office, but I’m suspect when all of a sudden his wife is accusing him of being a bad dad after he has had majority custody of the kids, as reported. Children should not be used as weapons among fighting parents.

      Too often men are accused of things that are not true and I don’t subscribe to “believe the woman.”

      I’ve seen too many women lie about these things. More often than not, men get shafted on parental rights because society has wrongly assumed the children are better off with the mom.

    402. Tgca says:

      I think it depends on the Hispanic voter and where they live, as well as economic success they’ve attained.

      In FL, Cuban voters can be reliably GOP even though some trends have shown younger ones voting differently than their parents but I’m not sure if that’s the candidates pool available or just yootful stoopidity they sooner or later may outgrow.

      Mexicans in Caleefawnyuh are generally solidly for Dems but hoping that changes over time as they see how the Dems policies in the state are meant to keep them in chains. Many Texas Mexicans often have different views than their left coast brethren too.

      Puerto Ricans generally favor Dems, especially in the NE. Growing PR population in Tampa/Orlando area could more evenly split over time since FL is no NY or NJ, but we’ll see.

      The only thing I would amend in your post 421 is, I would change “would lose a GE” to “might well lose a GE.” Maybe I’m looking at the situation through rose-colored glasses, though.

      I would add that it requires an act of wilful ignorance to ignore the CUMULATIVE weight of all G’s various instances of misconduct, & to disregard the fact that he was impeached by conservative Republicans, in a legislature in which Democrats were a non-factor– not by The Squad.

      However, if you go to other conservative blogs, you’ll find a lot of pro-Greitens comments, which concerns me still. It could be that the 31% who supported him in the last poll can’t be moved.

      Tina, the problem is not that we don’t have “other good candidates,” the problem is that we have THREE other good candidates. I’ve always hated runoffs, but as Obama said of gay marriage, “I’m beginning to be persuaded about this.”

    406. Phil says:

      Hard for me to believe that Missouri Republican voters who can read Trafalgar GE Polls would vote for Greitens. He is only viable because of the no runoff primary system in Missouri. He is of course is counting on a Todd Akin type of plurality split. Can’t believe Missouri Republican voters would be that dumb….of course, they’ve done it before.

      Heh, typical lawyer double speak BS here. The only thing illegal here in a consensual relationship would be if he blackmailed her to release the photo publicly. Which Greitens denies and charges were dropped and which there was clear prosecution misconduct.

      Here is a balanced account from someone who actually thinks Greitens is lying, but contrary to Meldrin, does not try to make it into a crime.

      “On the other hand, let’s be clear that this is not likely a story about crime. If a married woman goes to another man’s house for the purpose of having an affair and consents to be tied up in a compromising situation, it’s tough to prove that she didn’t consent to a photo, if one were taken, or that she has a reasonable expectation of privacy in such a situation.

      Also, while the alleged activity of Greitens is consistent with colloquial use of the word “blackmail,” lawyers tell me that doesn’t mean it constitutes an actual felony. It might be subject to some statute involving intimidation, but again, it’s not easy or obvious criminal proof. And lying to the public is not a crime.

      I don’t think that matters. The story is about degrees of immorality, not crime. The question is whether you believe Greitens is telling the truth, which means the woman would have been lying to her then-husband in what she thought was a private conversation.

      Personally, I think it’s hard to believe that Greitens is not lying. His propensity to lie is a known commodity based on his family-man campaign. Also established is Greitens’ propensity to bully people: He wears his macho, weapon-toting, Navy Seal, tough-guy image as a badge of honor. He proudly and publicly has bullied legislators of his party, among others. It’s what defines him and sets him apart from “weak” politicians and media types.”

    410. Phil says:

      Putin has just managed to eliminate Russia as a threat to anyone. Who is he going to get to man his tanks to go into Moldova or any former Soviet Pepublic? His military gets weaker by the day.

      Now for the real American threat – China.

    411. jason says:

      I think it is pretty clear Greitens should never have been charged with any crime.

      It’s up to the voters to decide if they think he is morally fit for the office.

      I have to agree with Tgca on this. I don’t feel obliged to believe every woman, and Greiten’s wife’s allegations seem very suspicious from a timing standpoint and very strange it has not come up before.

    412. Tgca says:

      432

      Agreed! I think Russia has shown the world it’s not so tough or prepared to fight and win a war quickly without much casualties.

      Too bad Ukraine has to be the guinea pig but Russia proved it is no longer a threat to Europe without its NOOKYOOLER capability.

      Even France could probably whoop Russia’s butt at this point.

      European democracy is no longer in danger.

      Now Russia can go back to being a big annoyance with its hacking and propaganda but certainly no threat to reuniting Mother Russia.

    413. jason says:

      Phil is sure wearing some rose colored glasses.

      So NATO is undergoing a massive buildup because the Russian threat is “over”? Right.

      And the China is the real threat BS is like having gangrene on your foot and saying I better lower my blood pressure so I can maybe avoid a heart attack later.

    414. Meldrim says:

      I certainly don’t believe “every woman.” But when a woman says one thing, and Greitens says something diametrically opposed, I believe the woman.

      *HUG*

      TG to invite Jadon over for a roasted tofu dinner with Brussels sprouts, preceded by a kale and seaweed salad drenched in lime juice and chili spice, with an almond pudding dessert and Kombucha drink.

    416. Tgca says:

      Me thinks the future danger with Russia is that Russia realized how much weaker it was then thought and they could put great effort into pumping up and strengthening their military to ensure they do not get humiliated like this again.

      But that could take a number of years and be very costly.

      We will see.

      Russia may also find itself financially strapped if countries like Germany realized they foolishly relied too much on Russia for their energy needs and seek energy resources elsewhere.

    417. jason says:

      Phil, once again, Phil, instead of your traditional declarations of impending doom, you should consider making the following statement: “The election laws approved by Democrats in Nevada will make it more difficult for Republicans to win statewide or in the three Democrat-leaning congressional districts.”

      Phil, tell Meldrim to GFH.

      What a crock of drivel. It doesn’t matter what the polls show if the actual vote is tainted.

      I suggest the following statement for Meldrim.

      “Election laws approved by Democrats have made it easy to engage in blatant fraud and steal elections. Ballot harvesting and lack of custody of ballots

    418. jason says:

      give Dems a huge advantage, that can only be overcome by a massive R vote”

    419. Meldrim says:

      #426, Phil, doubling down, eh? When, the day after the 2020 elections, the GOP had narrow leads in at least four congressional districts in California, you announced that the Democrats surely would win all four because of all of their mail-in cheating and vote harvesting and whatnot (I say “at least four” because you may have said the same thing even about districts that Republicans won more comfortably). The GOP ended up winning every single one of the districts that you declared–even after the election, and even after the vote count favored the GOP–to be UNWINNABLE for the GOP. Congressmen García, Valadao, Steele and Kim pulled off what you literally described as *impossible*, all in a state whose laws make it even harder for Republicans to win than do Nevada’s laws. One would think that such humiliation would make you a little humbler regarding your guarantees of impending doom, but I guess that some people would rather continue to be wrong than to admit that, just maybe, things aren’t as they thought.

      Once again, Phil, instead of your traditional declarations of impending doom, you should consider making the following statement: “The election laws approved by Democrats in Nevada will make it more difficult for Republicans to win statewide or in the three Democrat-leaning congressional districts.” How hard is that? You should take Robert Downey, Jr.’s advice from “Tropic Thunder”: “Never go full retard.”

    420. Phil says:

      Right Jason. Putin can send in the forty mile long covey into Poland.

      I can only imagine what that would look like in half a day. NATO pilots would have it a smoldering hunk of ashes. Absolute suicide and Putin knows it…but sure – send em in.

      I wish China was only a patch of gangrene on the foot. If you believe that I’m afraid you are the one wearing rose colored glasses.

    421. jason says:

      But when a woman says one thing, and Greitens says something diametrically opposed, I believe the woman.”

      I don’t believe either one, since I have no idea who is lying.

      And neither do you.

      I noticed the article has inconsistent statements than the poll saying Cheney has 8% support but the poll showing only 1%. Inconsistency for Haley too reported. Lazy reporting.

    423. Phil says:

      As Jason just told you Meldrim, polls measure what would happen in an on the level election. That’s not the case in Nevada. Read the election laws in Nevada and get back to me.

    424. Meldrim says:

      Jason wants to go full retard, too. How cute. OK, Jason, say that it’s impossible for Republicans to win in Nevada, and when they win say that you were right all along, because, just like “never,” the word “impossible” is so vague that it could mean “win by fewer votes than the party would have won had Democrats not cheated.”

      You can be a fatalist all you like, but then you don’t get to say that you weren’t wrong when the sky doesn’t fall.

    425. Phil says:

      Phil, if Republicans win the governorship, the Senate seat, or any of the three Dem-held congressional districts in NV (all three of which are more Democrat than the state as a whole), will you admit that you were wrong and STFU? Of course you won’t, because you’ve been wrong about just about every election since at least 2016 and you still make the exact same fatalist predictions.

    430. jason says:

      ight Jason. Putin can send in the forty mile long covey into Poland.”

      There is no reason to believe Putin would do it that way.

      Every war has a different strategy. The objective in the Ukraine was an operation lasting 2 weeks that would result in regime change. What we see in Ukraine is only a small part of Russia’s military power.

      Putin miscalculated and as a result we are seeing problems with his military. But Russia has 3 million in uniform between active and reserve troops, over 1200 combat aircraft and 12000 tanks and a formidable navy and nuke force.

      Pretending Russia is not a real threat to NATO and the US is isolationist idiocy.

    431. jason says:

      I wish China was only a patch of gangrene on the foot.”

      You read that wrong. Russia is the gangrene because it is the current threat.

    432. Phil says:

      Wrong about 2016? No, I said it would be stolen by the same means that are now codified law in Nevada. Seems that was pretty right on in the states Biden needed to win – unless you want to go with the Romney – Chenney – Chuck Todd – DNC it was the most fair election in American history BS. I gather from your little tantrum tonight you buy right into it.

    433. jason says:

      Phil, if Republicans win the governorship, the Senate seat, or any of the three Dem-held congressional districts in NV (all three of which are more Democrat than the state as a whole), will you admit that you were wrong and STFU?”

      He wouldn’t be wrong.

      It would just mean Rs managed to overcome massive fraud.

      I think you should take Phil’s suggestion and read the laws the Dems have passed instead of living in lalaland.

    434. jason says:

      OK, Jason, say that it’s impossible for Republicans to win in Nevada,”

      Heh, Meldrim lies about what I said and then attacks the lie.

      I love it here.

    435. Phil says:

      Jason, I believe you yourself have stated you never said Russia would attack NATO countries. If he was foolish enough to try NATO air power would decimate his conventional forces.

      His advantage would be tactical nukes which is a card he can’t play – even with Biden in the WH although he’d have a better chance of getting away with it than if Trump was in the WH. Moscow…turned to glass.

      Frankly, I don’t know about you but the Russian military hasn’t shown much as far as projecting a practical threat beyond Ukraine. They are in a stalemate with Ukraine for God’s sake.

    436. jason says:

      Meldrim really is an idiot to bring up CA.

      Yes, the GOP won a few seats, but he probably hasn’t noticed there are 43 Democrats and 10 Republicans.

      The odds ARE stacked against Rs in CA even if the GOP picked up a few seats.

    437. Phil says:

      A NFZ in Ukraine would have, IMO, deterred Putin from invading in the first place. Hindsight opinion by me for sure but I wouldn’t mind one over Moldova and I’ve stated as such. I’m just not sure it’s even needed now given the performance of the Russian military so far. I wouldn’t oppose one however at this juncture.

    438. jason says:

      ason, I believe you yourself have stated you never said Russia would attack NATO countries.”

      Phil, you can play dumb if you want, but what I said was the recreation of the Soviet Union will eventually become a threat to NATO. And that is what Putin is trying to do.

      The stalemate in the Ukraine might be a setback for Putin in his quest for a greater Russia, but he has had other successes in Belarus and the “stans”. And he is going to end up with a portion of the Ukraine, stalemate or not.

      Don’t get ahead of yourself.

    439. jason says:

      A NFZ in Ukraine would have, IMO, deterred Putin from invading in the first place.”

      I agree.

    440. jason says:

      jason is devastated but won’t be able to attend due to pressing prior engagements.

      To make up for it he invites Tgca for a traditional asado chileno, grilled pork sausages, lamb, beef and chicken. Women and sissies will have salad or desert something equally unappetizing, but the men essentially just eat meat and drink beer.

    441. Meldrim says:

      “Wrong about 2016?”

      Phil, 2016 was the year in which you said that it was impossible for a GOP presidential candidate to carry PA because the Democrats would steal it, and Trump carried it.

      And Jason, whoever said that California has fair election laws, much less that Republicans can win statewide or in any of those heavily Democrat districts? Far from being an idiot, it actually is pretty smart of me to bring up that in California, which has worse ballot harvesting and mail-in fraud than Nevada Democrats ever could hope to achieve, there were four seats that had been captured by Democrats in 2018 and in which the GOP candidate was up slightly on ED+1, and Phil announced that it was impossible for the Republican to win in any of the four because it was guaranteed that vote-harvesting and late fraudulent mail-in ballots permit the Democrats to steal the elections without a sweat, and he was wrong on all four counts. Huge amount of egg on his face, or at least there would be if he had any shame or self-awareness.

      But what *really* will get Phil angry is that not only the Nevada elections will prove him wrong this November, but that the GOP will have won because of support from Hispanic (specifically, Mexican-American) voters, whom Phil assured us would never vote Republican. Phil is always certain, but seldom right.

    442. Bitterlaw says:

      450 Typical hate filled trash from Tgclown. Of course, he will pretend he has nothing but the utmost respect and sympathy for those with mental challenges/disabilities.

    443. Bitterlaw says:

      Meldrim – Give Phil his due. He said a Republican nominee for President would NEVER win PA. It was not limited to 2016. Never is a dangerous word when making predictions.

    444. Phil says:

      Yeah, Meldrim, that will get me “angry”.

      Lol

      I guess you’re counting on a 10 point Republican landslide in Nevada to translate into a 1500 vote GOP win there on election night.

      Good luck on that one. All the GOP has to do is outvote Democrats by double digits. No problem, right?

      Nevada isn’t Florida. They actually have election integrity – voter ID, signature verification, ballot deadlines, prohibitions against ballot harvesting, don’t mail out ballots to every address…..and guess what? Republicans win elections there. Wh’d have thunk it?

      …..and then there is Nevada. Like I said. Good luck!

      God, you’re naive. How many elections do Democrats have to steal with you?

    445. Phil says:

      Good thing Democrats in Clark County will stop at stealing just enough votes to cut their deficit to the 1500 vote margin….and would never ever ever ever consider stealing the last 1500.

    449. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      Once a peace deal is put in place between Russia and the Ukraine, the Ukraine should join the EC. They will not be able to join NATO, but that should not stop them from participating in NATO military exercises like Sweden and Finland do.

    450. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      From a Kyiv newspaper:

      “It has now been a month of this new reality since Russia’s attacks began early in the morning on Feb. 24, 2022.

      Yes, the Kremlin really did launch a World War II-level military offensive against Ukraine. Their invasion is full of war crimes and barbarities, and lacks an obvious voice of reason.

      No, Ukraine didn’t turn out to be frail and didn’t kneel before the invading army.

      Instead, after a month of hostilities, tangible results indicate that Ukraine has sustained the war’s first major blow. It defeated the Kremlin’s initial, most dangerous plan of a quick, shock-and-awe invasion.

      Now, the war is entering a new phase — a grueling longer-term war of attrition, and a new, difficult test for the Ukrainian military and the nation.

      But thanks to important early victories, as well as broad international support, this new phase opens a wide window of opportunity for inflicting a full-fledged military defeat upon Russia.”

      Ukrainians are not going to settle on Moscow’s terms. An important question is will Belarus erupt in a popular rebellion again like it did several years ago.

    451. Tom says:

      463. The only reason Trump won Pennsylvania and all those “blue” mid-west states in 2016 was because the democrats were so confident of victory they didn’t think they needed to activate their fraud machine. They weren’t so complacent in 2020 and we saw the results.

    452. jason says:

      Far from being an idiot,”

      Sorry Meldrim, facts not in evidence.

    453. jason says:

      Meldrim claims the Dems don’t steal elections and there is no fraud because the GOP still wins some of them.

      And then says he is “far from being an idiot”.

      HHR is a great place.

    454. jason says:

      7th Russian general killed in Ukraine.

      Either they are taking extraordinary risks, the Ukrainians have good intelligence, or the Ukrainians have good snipers.

      Or maybe a combination thereof.

    455. jason says:

      They weren’t so complacent in 2020 and we saw the results.”

      Tom, don’t worry.

      According to Meldrim, the GOP will overcome the MOF everywhere so we should not concern ourselves with fraud, just stick your head in the sand and sing Kumbaya.

      And Hispanics are “trending Republican”, so we can ignore ballot harvesting in nursing homes and elsewhere, untraceable ballots without signature verification, lack of supervision and security in the counting, etc.

      See, if you are “smart” like Meldrim, you accept that the candidate with the most legally cast votes doesn’t win, only the candidate that can overcome a margin of fraud wins. This is “normal”, no problem.

    456. jason says:

      this new phase opens a wide window of opportunity for inflicting a full-fledged military defeat upon Russia.”

      Not going to happen without US/Nato intervention.

      Again, the rosy scenarios ignore the reality on the ground.

      Ukraine has resisted bravely and inflicted heavy losses on the Russians. The Russians have not attained their objective of installing a puppet government. The Russians have run into logistical and supply problems and have gotten bogged down in several fronts.

      But the war is being fought entirely in Ukraine. A quarter of its population is displaced and exiled. Thousands of civilians are dead and wounded. The Ukrainian infrastructure, roads and bridges and power grid and dams and airports and railways are being destroyed. The economy is at a stand still, businesses are closed, cities are being shelled and heavily damaged. Large parts of the country are under Russian occupation.

      This war is an unmitigated disaster and tragedy for Ukraine, there is no “victory” here. It will take trillions to rebuild the country and resettle 10 million or more people.

      Meldrim – Give Phil his due. He said a Republican nominee for President would NEVER win PA. It was not limited to 2016. Never is a dangerous word when making predictions.”

      I see Bitter is part of the sing Kumbaya team.

      The fact Trump eked out a very narrow win in PA in 2016, probably because the fraudsters believed the polling that showed Hillary ahead, doesn’t invalidate Phil’s main point. In fact the stealing of the next election proves Phil’s point. The attempt to play “gotcha” with the “never” comment by taking it out of context with his wider point just because of a fluke win in 2016 shows how shallow the “all is well, just keep voting Republican” argument is.

    459. jason says:

      routine moronic sophomoric A-hole posts”

      Huh, GFY.

      A-hole posts are always erudite and never moronic, even if I disagree with them.

      A-holes by definition cannot be moronic or sophomoric. Read the A-hole Charter.

    460. Phil says:

      In 2016 Democrats got blindsided in a number of states because Hillary was a shoe in. Well, they fixed things in 2020 in the states they needed to get to 270 didn’t they. Boy, did they.

      Completely rewrote election law.

      Ballot harvesting in nursing homes and door to door.
      Unsecured ballot boxes
      Waived signature verification
      Mailed unsolicited ballots to addresses off outdated voting lists
      Disregarded chain of custody sate guards
      No voter ID for mail in ballots

      But don’t worry guys. Romney told us that there’s nothing to see here. Most secure election in history. Mitt Romney said so.

      All the above actually codified into law in Nevada. The Nevada legislature “was just standing up for democracy”. Liz Cheney said so so everyone just STFU. Democracy baby!

      Phil, take it from Meldrim, don’t worry about these irrelevant details.

      Meldrim says if the Rs are ahead by 10 in the polls there is no way fraud will interfere in the results, Rs will win by at least 1.

      Guaranteed*

      * If they are only ahead by 5 he won’t guarantee it but shucks, Dems will be Dems, what can you do.

    462. jason says:

    463. Phil says:

      Oh yeah, I forgot extending ballot deadlines until three days or more after Election Day. Forgot that one – just in case all those bogus ballots don’t turn out to be enough – bring in just enough new bags to get over the hump. After all, after the Election Day count is done, they should know precisely how many “votes” are needed.

      Nothing to see here. Nothing at all. Anyone who brings any of this up is just, well, flat out retarded.

    464. jason says:

      Hey Bitter, I know “retard” is kinda tame compared to some of the insults we get, but it should be worth a few points, especially since “full retard” is worse than just “regular retard”.

    465. jason says:

      Phil, you are a brave A-hole.

      Mentioning the Nevada election laws designed to give Dems a huge advantage and promote fraud makes you a retard.

      By the way, I also find it quite insensitive and offensive that you refer to someone known to be part of the LGBTQ2IAS+ as “he” knowing that is a hurtful term to many in that community.

      Don’t you think it’s common courtesy and decency to 1st ask someone’s preferred pronoun? With 68+ gender identities in existence, it’s just disrespectful to assume someone’s pronoun.

      No wonder why conservatives struggle with growing their tent.

      The Russians have only lost 15 planes and 35 helicopters. The impact on air power is negligible with that few plane losses, they lost 8/192 SU-25 (close support) and 4/133 SU-34 (strike). The loss of 35 helicopter crews is more significant, but the Russians have 800 transport helicopters and 500 attack helicopters.

      I would have expected more by now. They need more Stingers.

      On the other hand the Ukrainians have taken out about a 1000 tanks, armored personnel carriers and infantry fighting vehicles. Assuming most crews were killed or captured, that is a lot of crews. The Javelins are doing a good job on the Russians.

      I don’t know whether Greitens is right or wrong but he makes a very good point about the custody agreement. I would assume if child abuse was an issue here, he would not have been granted majority custody.

      Again, I’m very suspicious of any woman who claim these things without proof. No woman should be believed over a man simply because she is a woman.

      …and I apologize in advance for violating HHR decency rules and using the offensive term “woman.” Forgive me for I know not what I say because I’m not a biologist and I don’t even know what “woman” means.

      Greitens told The Washington Times, “I am seeking full custody of my sons, and for their sake, I will continue to pray for their mother and hope that she gets the help that she needs.”

      Eric Greitens also told The Gateway Pundit earlier this week that his ex-wife signed a custody agreement months ago following their divorce. She did not mention any abuse from her former husband in the signed documents during the battle for custody of their two sons. The two boys spend the majority of their time with their father today. So why would she push these allegations today?

    486. Gordon Allen says:

      A look at the map shows that if Mariupol falls Putin will have pretty much secured the “land bridge” from the Donetsk down to the sea and the Crimea that was so much talked about.
      I wouldn’t be surprised, assuming some smarts on Putin’s part( a big if), that once that is accomplished he’ll declare a “cease fire”, claim victory, and dare the Ukrainians to continue the War in an attempt(unlikely to succeed) to recover the lost eastern/southern territory offensively; essentially create a fait accompli.
      This would partly explain the Russians seemingly having ceased offensive ground operations near Kiev and Kharkov. Putin knows he can’t conquer and hold(occupy) all of Ukraine, and this would create or maintain a buffer in Central and Western Ukraine between his forces and Nato territory, alleviating much of the latter’s immediate cpncerns.
      As this seems logical, it probably won’t happen ( but might, because Zelensky then wouldn’t be forced to negotiate these territories away-which he says he won’t- but rather simply have to accept battlefield realities).
      He has to take Mariupol first though.

      Neville Allen’s post is not “insightful”, it’s the same old isolationist and Putin appeasing claptrap he was advocating at the beginning of the invasion he said would never happen.

      Just another variation of “give Putin a piece of a sovereign nation and he will be happy and no longer be a threat to anybody, that big pussycat”.

      And of course, this idea that Putin needs a “buffer” between Russia and Nato countries is a crock of crap, Russia already borders some NATO countries and Putin knows Ukraine was never a threat to Russia.

      There are SO many Greitens scandals that the new allegations from his ex-wife are just confirmation of what everyone who follows MO politics concluded back during his impeachment hearings, Republican, Democrat or Independent.

      I will take mnw’s word for it that there are “SO MANY” scandals about Greitens. I have not read any of those so I can’t comment.

      But the “hairdresser scandal” is an spousal infidelity scandal, the rest of the story about abuse and intimidation and privacy violations was never proven and charges were dropped. Pretending Greitens is guilty of some crime he was never charged with is BS.

      I find it interesting that the same people who are always defending the “right to run” for deadenders are now trying to keep Greitens from running.

      Funny how that goes. What is good for the goose is not good for the gander.

When he died, it was George Bush … was president, and so, they accepted the idea that there was now a black seat on the court and that’s how we got Clarence Thomas.

      Now, I thought it was not exactly cricket to give the black seat to someone who didn’t represent the majority of black thinking in America. But here’s the difference. At least they accept it. George Bush did, the idea of at least one black seat on the court, right? I think today’s Republicans would not do that. I think they would be thrilled to have no black seats on the court … a lot of them.”

      Thomas has been in on the court for 30 years. I have worked in R circles for 30 years (retired). I never heard ONE Republican say they had a problem with a black person on the court. Not one. Not in the most rural backwaters of Texas, not in the reddest parts of PA.

      In the most recent poll prior to the latest news cycle, Greitens was at 31% IIRC, so this poll showing him at 24% is terrific news. G has coughed up 7 points, apparently.

      The election is in August– still over 4 months away. If the final poll before the GOP primary looks like this one, I’ll switch my vote from Hartzler to Schmitt in a nanosecond. I hope the Schmitt voters would do likewise, if Hartzler looks like the most viable alternative to the sex pervert sociopath.

      With appx 20% Und, I’m still optimistic that there is enough time left for Greitens to be stopped.

      “The rise of the heterosexual “queer

      The most galling thing about these freshly minted queer heterosexuals is that they’re basing their personas on lazy lies and ancient jokes. They wear eyeliner, they swish about, they hang around in dark corners committing unspeakable acts, they’re so tragic and complex and interesting! One is reminded of Lou Reed’s 1977 song ‘I Wanna Be Black’, in which the narrator wails ‘I don’t wanna be a f-cked-up middle-class college student any more’, and then proceeds to list the most grotesque stereotypes of what he imagines black people to be.

      For the queer heterosexual, queerness is a deliciously decadent flavour, a cosplay of the culture created by Western lesbians, gay men and bisexuals when they lived with fear and shame (as many around the world still do). It says that LGB people are exotic, sparkly, fascinating, when in fact homosexuals and bisexuals, just like heterosexuals, are every kind of people, and campaigned for decades for the right to be left alone, to be humdrum. Anybody who thinks homosexuals are inherently witty, effervescent and politically exciting obviously never went to the Magnum bar in Southampton in 1991.”

      James Vasquez said that he thinks about “punchable” Tucker Carlson when preparing for battle.

      Vasquez has described serving in Ukraine as feeling like an “awesome very dangerous vacation.”

      A US Army veteran who has volunteered to fight against Russia in Ukraine said that he prepares for battle by thinking about Tucker Carlson, The Guardian reported.

      “When I need to amp myself up for battle, I just think about the most punchable face on the planet … Tucker Carlson,” James Vasquez tweeted last week.”

    581. Tgca says:

      Any person that supports this proposed CA law is purely EVIL. To allow for the death of an infant after birth is nothing short of murder. They use nice technical words like “perinatal” but in essence that has a legal meaning to include a period of time after birth.

      We’ve had numerous reported instances where infants are left to die days or weeks after birth or a botched ABORTION by refusing them basic medical and routine care.

      (c) A critical part of realizing reproductive justice for people in California is clarifying that there shall be no civil and criminal penalties for people’s actual, potential, or alleged pregnancy outcomes.

      The Legislature finds and declares that every individual possesses a fundamental right of privacy with respect to personal reproductive decisions, which entails the right to make and effectuate decisions about all matters relating to pregnancy, including prenatal care, childbirth, postpartum care, contraception, sterilization, abortion care, miscarriage management, and infertility care.

      123467. (a) Notwithstanding any other law, a person shall not be subject to civil or criminal liability or penalty, or otherwise deprived of their rights, based on their actions or omissions with respect to their pregnancy or actual, potential, or alleged pregnancy outcome, including miscarriage, stillbirth, or abortion, or perinatal death.

    587. Tgca says:

      Macron criticized Biden because he’s pissed it will ruin his planned upcoming talks with Pootin. At least that’s what I read earlier today. He thinks Biden’s comments will make it harder to get Pootin to negotiate and give Pootin more excuses.

      If there is even a slim chance that Macron can have some success with getting Pootin to stand down, then an ally should not be doing anything to damage that just before talks. If talks fail, that is different.

      Remember, France is still a good deal of business with Russia so it is possible that Pootin who badly wants a way out can negotiate an exit plan with France.

      The US would be furious if the shoe were on the other foot and if it were about to go into peace talks and one of its partners was uncontrolled enough to sabotage it.

      Peace talks are meant to save lives and making politically stoopid comments and jeopardizing that for personal political gain is dumb and risks causing more loss of life.

      France actually is one of the few countries actively still doing business with Russia and even expanding as some other counties pull out so even if they have a slim chance of success, we should help the French in the interest of saving lives.

Phil is right to warn us that election laws in California and more recently in Nevada make it easier for the Democrats to cheat, but where he departs from reality and from any semblance of rational thought is when he declares that it is futile for Republicans to try to compete in districts or states in which the thumb is on the scale for Democrats because Democrats are guaranteed to win there. The fact that there is institutionalized cheating does not mean that Republicans can’t win, as was proven not just by García, Valadao, Steele and Kim in 2020 but by Donald Trump in WI, MI and PA in 2016 (when, believe me, the Democrat machines in Milwaukee, Detroit and Philadelphia did not all call in sick.

So while I don’t think that we should say that we won’t be prosecuting Putin for war crimes if he pulls troops out now, we certainly shouldn’t say that we *will* be prosecuting him even if he pulls out now, since he may decide that eventual prosecution is a sunk cost tvat can only be avoided if he wins the war. Vagueness regarding what we may or may not do is our optimal strategy here, and it was a monumental mistake for Biden to say at the outset that the U.S. would not send any troops into Ukraine no matter what. Similarly, it would be a mistake to set red lines (only to later ignore them) instead of to keep our options open (and Putin guessing). So I would not announce that any ceasefire must include a promise by Russia to pay reparations; the topic of reparations can be broached later, when negotiating which sanctions to remove and which ones to leave in place.

      Even Reagan toned it down when negotiating because he was wise enough to know what you say and what you truly believe may not always be the best thing to communicate when trying to get to a negotiating table.

      I always remember the question Reagan got after meeting with the USSR if he still believed they were evil and he replied no.

(Hey, imbeciles are smarter than idiots, so I’m being kind.) Anybody who thinks that Mike García’s true 2020 victory margin in CA-25 –a district that Biden carried by 10.1% in the meaningless presidential race–was in double digits is certifiably insane. Mike García wouldn’t have come close to a double-digit win in CA-21 in 2020 even if California’s elections had been run under Florida law with Tennessee GOP officials in charge. The Margin of Fraud in California is real, but it’s probably 1% or (at most) 2%), not double digits.

      As North Carolina goes so does the country.

      What doesn’t help “advance negotiations” is to approach them from a position of weakness. If you grovel before your adversary and are afraid to confront him for his actions, you think a killer like Putin is going to respect you?

      Any negotiations with Putin should make sure he understands that was he is doing constitutes war crimes that he will be held responsible for. And the longer he persists in this course the worse the charges will be.

      All over the world today, the news is about Biden, being mocked for trying the tough guy talk instead of focusing on Pootin’s aggression which means the US lost in the news cycle.

      Good luck getting negotiations even started by threatening someone with war crimes and calling them names. That will really bring them to the table.

      In NV even if you accepted 3% as the MOF, that would have given Trump the win, he lost by 2.4%.

      If it was 3% in 2016, Joe Heck would be the senator without fraud, he lost by 2.4% too. Yes, I understand these laws were enacted later, but I am giving an example of how a 3% MOF is hardly insignificant.

      661. “Good luck getting negotiations even started”

      Actually negotiations about a cease fire are progressing in Turkey. It’s Macron who should stop trying to subvert the process by trying to interfere and do his own separate negotiations.

      From a couple of days ago:

      “Russia, Ukraine make progress in ceasefire negotiations: Turkish FM
      “If the parties do not step back from their current positions, we can say that we are hopeful for a ceasefire,” Turkish Foreign Minister Cavusoglu said”

    647. Meldrim says:

      I was mistaken about Jason; he actually is as dense as Phil.

      First, I agreed with almost everything that Jason has said regarding Russia and Ukraine, and merely warned against provoking an expansion of the war (which certainly would be likely if we bombed Russian batteries on Russian soil), and he understood that to mean that I want to appease Putin. Unbelievable.

      Second, he thinks that my pointing out the undisputable fact that Democrat ekection cheating is real but does not preclude tge possibility of Republican victories, and thus that Republican should try to win elections in states and districts with such unfair laws instead of declaring any such efforts futile, means that I think that election laws liike those in CA and NV and election fraud generally are not a problem. Of course they are a problem, but when one faces a problem one tries to defeat it, not crumple in a corner sucking one’s thumb and bemoaning the injustice of it all.

      Far from futile, having Republicans run aggressively in CA-21, 25, 39 and 48 resulted in the GOP winning four seats that Democrats had picked up (again, largely through fraud) in 2018. Of course Democrats still hold the overwhelming majority of CDs in California–the state is terribly gerrymandered, and even if it weren’t Trump got around a third of the state vote, which limits our potential wins–but every district that the GOP wins in CA is one more district closer to taking the Speaker’s gavel away from Pelosi. You don’t think that Democrats pulled out all of their tricks to try to replicate their 2018 wins in those four districts? Of course they did, but they still fell short (in CA-21’s case, only 0.10% short), because even when they cheat there only are so many votes that they can create or destroy.

      And instead of declaring all elections in Nevada “unwinnable,” Republicans should run hard in that state and not only win a U.S. Senate seat and as many as three Dem-held U.S. Representative seats (Democrat redistricters unpacked the safe Democrat seat in Las Vegas so that the other two Dem seats leaned more towards the Democrats, so now all three are vulnerable), but also recapture the governorship and state leguslature and actually repeal the fraud-enabling election laws that the Democrats recently adopted, replacing them with election-integrity measures. That certainly is not possible in California (it will take years for Republicans to have a chance of winning a majority of the state legislature there, although I guess that it’s possible for vote-harvesting and other fraud-ebabling measures could be repealed by referendum, not that I would bet on it occurring), but Republicans can take advantage of the current political environment to win back Nevada and then reduce the Margin of Fraud for 2024 and beyond. Opting not to try to win in NV (or PA, for that matter, Jason) because “the system is rigged and it’s futile to run” could become a self-fulfilling prophesy. You should want to be proven wrong regarding your pessimism.

The WI legislature hired a retired judge to investigate & report on election law violations in WI.

      at Democrat ekection cheating is real but does not preclude tge possibility of Republican victories,”

      This is “genius” thinking?

      I have never precluded the “possibility of R victories” because sometimes Rs can overcome the MOF even where massive fraud is present.

      Meldrim uses the 0.1% win by a R, even after acknowledging the MOF is at least 1%. So he is not bothered by the fact this election should not even have been that close. Maybe the Dems thought they had banked enough votes to win and were wrong, but this should not be considered “normal”.

      Regarding PA, I don’t preclude the possibility Rs could win in a wave year, so it is possible they could win in 2022 even if nothing was done to change the fraudulent system the Dems put it. The reason I won’t vote is because I choose not to participate in a rigged system where I cannot be sure my vote counts or is not diluted by illegal votes.

      Finally, I hope all Rs win despite the fraud. It doesn’t mean I should think it is normal. I hope my “pessimism” if you want to call it that is wrong, absolutely.

    660. jason says:

      I am skeptical, because most of the fraud occurs in places where Dems dominate the judicial system. I understand you say “federal”, but hard to see it happening without any referrals and without some charges of wrongdoing at the local level.

      The only way to change it IMO is for Rs to win enough power in these states to change the laws and regulations that allow for fraud. But of course the fraud is designed to prevent that from happening.

    664. Cash Cow TM says:

      Since nobody else has come forth with a draft proposal to end the Ukraine invasion by Russia, Cow proposes this:

      1. Russia gets the Donbas region.
      Must pay Ukraine fair market value or all the roads, water, sewer systems, government building etc. that were built with Ukrainian money and that were in place there prior to the invasion.
      BUT from her forward, the name “Donbas” is dropped, and all mention and all maps of the region must refer to it as the “Dumbass Region” and the Russian sepratists who lived there must be referred to as Dumbasses.

      2. Ukraine will rent the Crimea to Russia for $10,000 a day and Ukraine will agree to turn the water back on to the Crimean peninsula.

      3. Putin agrees to step down as leader of Russia –and since the U.S. is partly to blame for the invasion due to not doing enough to help Ukraine earlier and deter the Russian invasion–the Biden/Harris team agrees to step down and the U.S. will hold a special election for president between DeSantis and Pelosi. No third-party candidates allowed for this election.

      4. all prisoners from both sides to be unharmed and exchanged.

      5. Russia has to pay a deposit fee for all Russian tanks and other vehicles (that were destroyed, abandoned, captured) of $1 million per vehicle regardless of condition and bear the cost of extracting same from Ukraine. Also a $100 per mile charge is added for each mile the vehicle must be towed back to the Russian border. Money to be used to help rebuild Ukraine war damage.

      6. A new word must be added to world dictionaries. It is “Zelinskyyed” and it is a verb. (Sort of like in college basketball some years back they said someone was “Pittsnoggled” when the WV forward would come out from under the basket and drain three.)

      The word “Zelinskyyed” would mean when in political, diplomatic or military circles someone unexpectedly cleans the aggressive opponent’s clock and eat their lunch and makes them look foolish.

      7. Putin would be placed on Snake Island and both Ukrainian forces and Russian forces would be free to practice using their artillery and other munitions on Snake Island.

      “Defensive weapons won’t do it . It appears in fact that Western hopes entirely reside in sanctions hurting Russia sufficiently to cause a political change in Moscow; issuing verbal insults and threats won’t help that, as Putin will probably use them to rally Russian national feelings, and drive him into further dependency on China economically and politically.
      It is increasingly hard to see how this ends well, especially for the Ukrainians.

      Eighty-eight percent of Ukrainians said they are favorable toward President Volodymyr Zelensky, who has defiantly remained in the capital to rally Ukrainian and international support. Zelensky was elected in 2019 on an anti-corruption platform and before the Feb. 24 invasion had faced waning support.”

      Not surprising Zelenskyy has great support in his country as he fights the invasion. People become very patriotic when they feel their homeland is attacked or their country is fighting the good fight.

      GWB, had 90% poll ratings after 9/11. Unfortunately he squandered that away after he illegally invaded Iraq and became a war criminal that was never brought to justice.

      GH Bush had a 90%+ approval rating after leading the effort to defend Kuwait against Iraq.

The bottom line result is that the generic number on election would be about R+5 or 6, not R+2.

      717

      No! They were not wrong about you! No one has admitted they were wrong about you. That’s just your mental illness deflecting again. People here still think you’re woke and a virtue signaler.

      It’s who you were in 2020, 2021, and still are today.

      Deny it all you wish.

      A number of people here agree with me on Ukraine, others do not.

      No one here agrees with you on wokeism and virtue signaling.

      These are facts!

    694. Tgca says:

      What a dumbass closeted homo William Kristol is, me thinks.

      Him and others are comparing Biden’s speech to Reagan’s “tear down this wall” and others saying it surpasses Reagan’s speech.

      Too funny!

      Neocon and rabid anti-Trumper Bill Kristol has been getting torched on social media for comparing President Joe Biden’s dangerous call for a regime change in Russia to former President Ronald Reagan’s iconic “tear down this wall” speech.

    695. Bitterlaw says:

      Zzzzzzzzzzz. You are the one supporting Putin’s war by justifying a “peace” that devastates Ukraine and trashing Zelensky. You are now confirmed as a clown. I knew it years ago. Glad to see that others agree with me. I tried to ignore you but it is impossible to ignore clowns.

    696. jason says:

      Bitter, tomorrow AM I will list Tgca’s latest excuse on why he supports Putin.

      “Bitter is woke”.

    697. Bitterlaw says:

      Instead of Tgclown, maybe I should call him Tuckercga. But it is not easily pronounced.

    698. Tgca says:

      Others don’t agree with you on your wokeism and virtue signaling.

      Please name one here that does. I can name numerous here who have called you out on your wokeness and virtue signaling.

      I proved through numerous posts I can repost that support I called for NFZ and kicking Pootin’s butt back to Russia so it’s IMPOSSIBLE for me to be an appeaser with such views.

      The fact that many of us have a differing view of how to deal with the war does not make us appears either.

      Unfortunately, you can’t say the same for your wokeness and virtue signaling.

      Now go take your meds and go to bed because your mental illness is showing again.

    699. jason says:

      Headline at Redstate

      “Joe Biden’s Big Gaffe Perfectly Exposes the Imbecility of the ‘Experts'”

      Tgca hardest hit.

    700. jason says:

      Give Tgca the Non-sequitur Award for the night.

      He is Putin’s little sniveling lapdog, but hey, nobody agrees with Bitter “wokiness”.

      Hilarious.

    701. Tgca says:

      Jadon

      Are you denying you have accused Bitter of being woke and a virtue signaler, for like 2 years? You change your mind on that too?

      You switch back and forth depending on who supports your current view.

      You support the gay fascist from Caleefawnyuh now too because he agrees with you but before you thought he was a fascist. You change your mind on that too?

      Make up your mind.

    702. Tgca says:

      Jadon, Bitter, and SDC on one side, and everyone else at HHR on the other side on Ukraine. What does that tell you about it. A liar, a fascist, and a mentally unstable wokester against all others here.

      You clearly don’t know the definition of appeaser. Perhaps you need a refresher in your ESL classes.

    703. jason says:

      Instead of Tgclown, maybe I should call him Tuckercga”

      I hear Putin calls him Pupsik.

    704. Tgca says:

      725

      Jadon admits Bitter’s wokeness. OUCH!!!

    705. Tgca says:

      Funny! More people agree with Tucker than you Jadon.

    706. jason says:

      Are you denying you have accused Bitter of being woke and a virtue signaler, for like 2 years?”

      Zzzzzzzzz….

      Don’t worry, I will put that as a justification for appeasing Putin.

    707. jason says:

      I fully agree with Bitter on the Ukraine.

      I have had differences with him on what constitutes wokiness.

      Both can be true.

      GFY.

    708. jason says:

      Jadon, Bitter, and SDC on one side, and everyone else at HHR on the other side on Ukraine.”

      There are others here who support standing up to Putin, certainly Walt and DW do.

      But even if there wasn’t I don’t worry how many people here agree with me or not. The fact you do says a lot about you.

    709. Tgca says:

      So you and I agree on Bitter being woke, or should I say you, me, and everyone else here agrees on Bitter being woke.

      You and I disagree on the approach in Ukraine, or should I say, me and pretty much everyone here disagree with you on Ukraine.

      Both can be true!

      Good For You too!

    710. Tgca says:

      Jadon

      You evidently don’t know the definition of an appeaser.

      APPEASER:
      someone who tries to bring peace by acceding to demands

      I don’t know anyone here that has done that, and certainly not me when I’ve called for a NFZ and boots on the ground where you’ve been too chicken chit to call for that.

      You’d fit very well into General Miley’s military today. All talk and no action.

    711. Meldrim says:

      My position on Ukraine is almost exactly the same as that of Jason, Bitter and SDC. We definitely should arm Ukraine to the teeth, irrespective of how it makes Putin feel. I wouldn’t want us to bomb Russian batteries on Russian soil (which would cause Putin to expand the war and start attacking our bases in Europe), though, so I don’t think that we (or our NATO allies) should be the ones enforcing a no-fly zone over Ukraine–if we wouldn’t be willing to bomb Russian batteries firing at our planes from Russian soil (which would be necessary if a no-fly zone is to be imposed), then we should let Ukraine be the one enforcing a no-fly zone. That is why I support having Poland or other NATO countries give MiGs to the Ukrainians (they can’t fly any other fighter jets, at least not without extensive training for which they don’t have time right now) and have us replace those MiGs with F22s.

    712. Tgca says:

      736

      Ha! Meldrim agrees with me more than Jadon and he doesn’t realize it.

      I have said from Day 1 the US should not go it alone. It should be led by Europe and then we could help institute a NFZ with US support including direct conflict with Russia.

      A US led effort would be an act of war. Jadon thinks that’s drivel.

      Jadon considers it appeasement and thinks it is not necessary to have Europe lead a NFZ and said the US should lead any effort because it includes American forces at risk.

      I just think Jadon doesn’t understand the definition of appeasement.

      Jadon thinks failure to act and delegating it to Europe is appeasement so in essence, Jadon would consider Meldrim an appeaser because Meldrim doesn’t think the US should lead the effort.

      Thank you for agreeing with me Meldrim more than you agree with Jadon even though you didn’t realize it.

    713. jason says:

      Meldrim agrees with me more than Jadon and he doesn’t realize it.”

      LOL

    714. Tgca says:

      For the record, I think everyone here pretty much agrees giving as much military equipment support to the Ukrainians as possible.

      Some disagree whether it should come from the US directly or not. I am fine either way, no matter who gives it.

    715. jason says:

      I don’t consider Meldrim an appeaser.

      I consider Tgca a Putin lapdog and appeaser.

      Not rocket science.

      I have my differences with Meldrim, but I think he is competent enough to know who he agrees with or not.

    716. jason says:

      My position on Ukraine is almost exactly the same as that of Jason, Bitter and SDC”

      Tgca wants an unanimous vote here for appeasement.

      Not going to happen.

      But maybe he can get buy Neville Allen’s magazines too make sure they are 100% in agreement.

    717. Tgca says:

      Jadon, do you agree with Meldrim that the US and NATO should NOT enforce a NFZ?

      Yes or no?

    718. Tgca says:

      Go back and read what Meldrim is saying.

      He is skeptical of the US or NATO confronting Russia because that would expand the war and open US bases for attack too.

      You agree with that? Yes or no?

    719. jason says:

      Tgca above says what “jadon thinks”.

      Of course, everything he said about what I “think”, what I “consider”, and what I “understand” is wrong.

    720. Tgca says:

      So according to Meldrim, since his position is ALMOST exactly as Jadon:

      The US and NATO should not directly arm Ukraine with air power or be involved in a NFZ because Russia could then expand the war and attack bases in Europe.

      Is this what Jadon believes?

    721. jason says:

      Meldrim doesn’t write 50 posts a day repeating Putin talking points and propagandaa against Zelensky and the Ukraine and 50 posts trashing America every day.

    722. Tgca says:

      Why won’t you answer the question?

      Do you agree with Meldrim on not taking the risks because the war can expand or US bases can be attacked?

      I thought you said we should not fear what Russia will do.

      Do you agree with him on that point or not?

      Don’t dodge the question.

    723. jason says:

      Heh, Tgca is lying about what Meldrim said and pretending I don’t agree with it.

      It sounds like he almost exactly agrees with me, his own words.

      “irrespective of how it makes Putin feel. I wouldn’t want us to bomb Russian batteries on Russian soil”

      Contrary to you, he is not worried about “how Putin feels”, he could care less. You are the one worried about calling Putin what he is, a war criminal and a butcher.

      I also have never advocated for bombing batteries on Russian soil, I have been clear any intervention should happen in Ukraine, let the Russians escalate it if they so choose.

    724. Tgca says:

      746

      Deflection.

      …and Meldrim doesn’t post numerous times a day others are appeasers like you do.

      Now answer the question. Do you agree with Meldrim we should avoid escalating any conflict with Russia because that will expand the war and result in US bases being attacked?

    725. Tgca says:

      748

      Your last sentence is a direct conflict with Meldrim and what you’ve called appeasement in others.

      You are contradicting yourself.

    726. jason says:

      The US and NATO should not directly arm Ukraine with air power”

      More lies, Tgca is a pathological liar.

      Meldrim specifically said:

      “That is why I support having Poland or other NATO countries give MiGs to the Ukrainians”

      So obviously he supports NATO countries arming the Ukrainians directly with air power.

      Stop lying.

    727. jason says:

      My positions are well known here.

      I am glad Meldrim agrees with them but it doesn’t make any difference to me one way or another.

      Tgca is writing 20 more post trying to convince himself that Meldrim agrees with him.

      Obviously he thinks that is important. Childish and sad.

    728. jason says:

      Meldrim states his position is almost exactly as mine.

      I am sorry that triggers Tgca to the point he writes another 50 posts about it.

    729. Tgca says:

      Jadon refuses to call Meldrim an appeaser as he called others for saying the same thing because he wants people to agree with him.

      Meldrim fears expanding the war or having US bases attacked. Isn’t that what you called appeasement in others?

    730. jason says:

      Jadon, Bitter, and SDC on one side, and everyone else at HHR on the other side on Ukraine.”

      I think Tgca is upset he was just caught in another lie.

      I don’t know why, there are so many. What is one more.

    731. jason says:

      Jadon refuses to call Meldrim an appeaser”

      Poor Tgca, desperately wants company.

      Sorry, Meldrim is not here repeating Russian propaganda all day long and trashing the US all day long.

      Find someone else that will “agree with you”.

    732. Tgca says:

      Jadon

      Answer my question please.

      Meldrim is concerned expanding the war or US bases being attacked if the US engages in NFZ.

      Do you agree with that?

      STOP deflecting.

    733. jason says:

      I have plenty of disagreements with Meldrim.

      If I thought he was an appeaser I would say so.

      So GFY again.

    734. jason says:

      Sorry, you don’t get to interpret what Meldrim says and have me comment on what you think he said.

      Why don’t you take him at his word that he almost exactly agrees with me.

      Why does that trigger you so much?

    735. Tgca says:

      756

      Jadon you post more than anyone at HHR. We have done counts of your posts in the past to prove it.

      STOP deflecting.

      Answer the question.

      I will ask it over and over in every post since you have accused others of being appeasers when they have said similar to Meldrim.

      Do you agree with Meldrim on the expansion of the war and attack on US bases is something to be weary of beforevtaken such action?

    736. jason says:

      I will let Tgca continue to fight with what he thinks Meldrim thinks.

      There should be 50 more posts whining about it by morning.

      I will post my list of Putin excuses then, I am sure Tgca will stay up for that.

    737. jason says:

      “something to be weary of beforevtaken such action?”

      LOL.

      Goalpost moving alert!

      Yeah, I agree we should always be “wary”.

    738. Tgca says:

      759

      NO! Because his explanation is exactly in contradiction to your previous posts.

      Again, do you agree with Meldrim that we should be concerned about expanding the war or US bases being attacked if the US participates in NFZ?

      Your answer please.

    739. jason says:

      I will continue to ask the same question.

      Why does Meldrim agreeing with me trigger you so much?

    740. jason says:

      Because his explanation is exactly in contradiction to your previous posts.”

      He doesn’t agree, does he? You are the one sayig there is a contradiction.

      If he did, he wouldn’t have said his position is almost exactly as mine.

    741. Tgca says:

      So it’s not appeasement when Meldrim has concerns of what Russia might do but it’s appeasement when others say they are concerned what Russia might do.

      This is too easy.

      You can play on words but anyone here following your posts know you have accused others of appeasements for the things Meldrim posted but you won’t call him an appeaser simply because you want to say someone agrees with you when actually they do not according to your own previous posts.

    742. jason says:

      Meldrim, maybe you should delegate Tgca as your spokesman, he claims to know what you think better than you do.

    743. Tgca says:

      764

      It shows your hypocrisy.

      You’re not calling Meldrim an appeaser for similar comments he made about concerns of what Russia will do when you called others appeasers.

      I’m showing your hypocrisy on the issue.

    744. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      Mark Levin on Fox News fully understands Putin, unlike little Tucker and the 1.7% of Americans who have a positive opinion of Putin:

      “Levin urged the U.S. and broader global community to hold the Russian leader accountable for “killing his way to the top” and bring an end to the reign of Russia’s “madman genocidal maniac.”

      “Who is the aggressor? It is Vladimir Putin. He is slaughtering innocent civilians, he is blowing up cities,” the host said. “One town on the Black Sea is 90% leveled. Wherever Putin goes, this is what he does, he has destroyed Syria with his favorite genocidal maniac there, he destroyed the Chechnya area….that’s what he does. He is a man who killed his way to the top. A man who assassinates in order to hold onto power…that is what we’re up against.””

    745. jason says:

      Why are you so interested in having people agree with you and disagree with you?

      Why is that so important?

      Think about it.

    746. jason says:

      Be careful SDC.

      That is “calling Putin names” and “Viking diplomacy”

      Tgca to say we shouldn’t be “escalating” things.

    747. Tgca says:

      It’s not what I think Meldrim is thinking. It’s what he posted about actions we take that could trigger Russia to then act.

      You called others who said similar things appeasers.

    748. jason says:

      killing his way to the top” and bring an end to the reign of Russia’s “madman genocidal maniac.”

      That is going to elicit another 50 posts from Tgca on how we should appease Putin, not call him what he is.

    749. jason says:

      You called others who said similar things appeasers.”

      Nah, I called appeasers appeasers.

      Very different concept.

    750. Tgca says:

      769

      A fascist poster who constantly posts one-sided posts and propaganda is now quoting Mark Levin who I believe Jadon has criticized in the past as well.

      Funny! Almost every major story this weekend agreed Biden was wrong and his OWN WH came out and backtracked on it because it is not the policy of the US to call for removing elected leaders of other countries.

      So it’s good to see both SDC and Jadon support Biden’s foreign policy talking points now.

    751. jason says:

      I have consistently stated why I think Tgca is Putin’s lapdog, in fact every morning I post a bunch of excuses, mostly from him, that I consider Russian propaganda and talking points. Among them are the fact he writes 50 posts a day appeasing Putin, trashing Zelensky and Ukraine, and trashing his own country.

      Now he pretends the reason I call him an appeaser is because of some disagreement on NFZ when at the same time he repeatedly says he agrees with me on NFZ.

      What kind of convoluted logic is that?

    752. jason says:

      So it’s good to see both SDC and Jadon support Biden’s foreign policy talking points now.”

      Hmmm…

      jason says:
      March 27, 2022 at 2:33 pm

      ….

      And besides, Biden is not walking back calling Putin a war criminal and a butcher.

      THe WH is cleaning up the “he cannot stay in power” thing, which I frankly didn’t think was wrong either.”

      “Now” my ass. Earlier today I already said I think Biden was right in saying Putin shouldn’t stay in power.

    753. jason says:

      Mark Levin who I believe Jadon has criticized in the past as well.”

      I agreed with Tucker Carlson on a lot of issues. I don’t agree with him since he became Putin’s errand boy both here and in Russia.

      I disagreed often with Levin on his interpretations of the Constitution, but I agree with him on Putin.

      See, it is not that difficult. It’s called having your own convictions.

    754. Tgca says:

      NO! Our disagreement is over Zelenskyy.

      You think he’s a hero. I think he is just another ex-communist who is corrupt and is acting like an authoritarian with some of his actions widely reported in the media that you ignore when he does it but call out others when they do it.

      I have taken a stronger position on how to deal with Russia than you.

      I have said from Day 1 I’m ok with a NFZ and boots on the ground as long as it’s led by Europe. Had we done that from Day 1, this war would most likely be over by now.

    755. Tgca says:

      Then we both agree that you disagree with others on some things but not on others.

      Therefore, that does not make them appeasers. It’s a difference in agreement.

      Your use of appeaser is like those that use racist whenever others don’t agree with them.

    756. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      777. Agree, there is nothing wrong with what Biden said. The problem is he is allowing his staff to contradict him. It makes him look weak.

      Imagine if Reagan staff had tried to contradict Reagan’s statement in which he told Gorbachev to “take down that wall”. Reagan would not have tolerated it.

      After Afghanistan, the world realized Biden was incompetent, and those surrounding him were as well. Reagan proved that you achieved “peace through strength”.

    757. Tgca says:

      781

      A leader of a democratic country should not be calling for the removal of a leader of another country elected by its people.

      This is how we get into wars. Think GWB and Iraq.

      I guess its ok for China, Russia, and half the Middle East to call for the ouster of US presidents in the future.

      Reagan himself backed off calling USSR evil after meeting with Gorbachev and he was asked does he still think they’re evil and he responded NO! I doubt Reagan changed his mind in such a short period of time. He just knew there are things that are not appropriate for a POTUS to say that could lead to disastrous consequences.

      It has NEVER been the position of the US to call for the ouster of a duly elected Russian leader.

      Biden’s mental and leadership capacity became the news story this weekend after that comment, not Russia’s aggression.

    758. Phil says:

      The problem is he’s allowing his staff to contradict him.

      Hell, his people are the ones who make the policies – not him. He just does what he’s told. He’s the puppet. When he goes off script his puppet masters correct him. Happens daily. A leader wouldn’t allow his staff to contradict him. Biden isn’t a leader. Not even close and everyone knows it.

      Let’s see. In three days this fluffhead told the 82nd airborne they were going into the Ukraine, sanctions were not a deterrent, and sounded like we were advocating for regime change in Russia. All that on a two and a half day trip.

      Lol

      This crisis was supposed to show what a leader this guy is. Nobody is buying it.

    759. Tgca says:

      783

      …and don’t forget he said we would act in kind if Russia used chemical weapons.

      The president of the United States admitted that the US would use chemical weapons against combatant troops.

    760. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      “A leader of a democratic country should not be calling for the removal of a leader of another country elected by its people.”

      When was Putin “duly elected”?

      Putin has killed and imprisoned those who oppose him.

    761. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      Here is what happens to the opposition in Russia. Putin is known to poison those who oppose him overseas. Putin is a murderer and a butcher. Thankfully, the vast majority of Americans realize this:

      “Navalny is serving a three-and-a-half-year sentence at the prison for a separate embezzlement charge. He survived a poisoning attempt on his life in 2020 and was arrested after returning to Russia last year.

      His family and supporters say the Kremlin is seeking an easy conviction by holding the trial inside a prison colony far away from his support base in Moscow.

      “[The authorities] want to hide him from all people, from his supporters, from journalists,” wrote his wife, Yulia Navalnaya, in an Instagram post on the eve of the trial. “It is so pathetic that they are afraid to hold the trial in Moscow.”

    762. Bitterlaw says:

      Tuckergca brings up the tired and wrong accusations that I am woke – something nobody except him has discussed in months – and then accuses others of “deflecting.” I love this place.

    763. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      562. Just an interesting note on the Trafalgar survey of 1080 respondents (likely voters) which showed only 1.7% approval for Putin.

      Among ages groups 18-24, 25-34, 35-44 Putin had 0% (zero) strong approval;

      Among age group 45-64 Putin had .05% strong approval;

      Among 65+ age group Putin had 2.0% strong approval.

      Strong disapproval of Putin by age was:
      18-25 100%
      25-34 79.4%
      35-44 73.2%
      45-64 74.5%
      65+ 82.2%

      Total disapproval of Putin by party:

      Republicans 87.8%
      Democrats 88.6%

      Hello?

      Tgca IS a clown.

      Putin is a ruthless dictator, “elected by his people” my ass. Sham elections you mean.

      Saddam Hussein used to get 98% of the vote, was he “duly elected”?

      Putin is only “elected” because he persecutes his opposition and doesn’t have a free press and has a “crony oligarchy” to support him.

      Funny how Tgca says Zelensky is guilty of all this but he gives Putin a pass. Of course Zelensky WAS duly elected from a field of 39 candidates in a free election (except for the 12% of Ukranians under Russian occupation) and has only been President since 2019 for a 5 year term.

      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2019_Ukrainian_presidential_election

    765. jason says:

      Here we go, thanks to Tgca we have new material for our list of excuses on why it is ok for Putin to invade the Ukraine, cause a massive humanitarian crisis, kill tens of thousands of innocent people, and destroy the country’s economy and infrastructure. Putin Appeasers, enjoy!

      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

      Putin is a dictator who has been in power since 1999, but is “duly elected” and gets a pass, Zelensky is duly elected in 2019 but is “Stalin”.

      Bitter is right, you have to love it here.

      Something went wrong on the list. I will do better tomorrow.

    768. jason says:

      I am sure Tgca will give Putin a pass, after all, he is “duly elected”

      “Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said the Kremlin censored his interview with Russian journalists Sunday because it’s “frightened” of the truth about the invasion of Ukraine being reported in Russia.

      Hours after Zelensky posted the 90-minute interview in which he spoke Russian to his Telegram channel, Russia’s government issued a statement warning Russian news outlets “about the necessity of refraining from publishing” Zelensky’s 90-minute interview with the journalists, per state media.”

      No free world leader should hesitate to state plainly that the world would be a far better place if Putin were no longer in power in Russia. A good way to make that come about is to say exactly that. Russia will be pariah until Putin is gone.

    770. Tom says:

      Putin is a dictator who rigged his elections to assure his victories. Having said that, I also believe the majority of the Russian people support him. Their entire history is one of authoritarianism, and they seem to prefer it that way.

    771. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      793. Same sleaze as existed with the Clinton Foundation. Disguised as a charity, the Clinton Foundation paid six figure salaries to employees who were Democratic political consultants. Bill Clinton obtained contributions from world leaders and businesses while Hillary was Secretary of State.

    772. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      796. You may be right. But keep in mind that there were massive anti-Putin demonstrations in Russia in 2021. This was a NYTimes headline:

      ‘Aleksei Navalny Protests, Russia Faces Biggest Dissent in Years
      Demonstrations in support of the jailed opposition leader swept the nation, beginning in the Far East, where people braved subzero temperatures, and reaching the capital. Arrests climbed into the thousands.”

      I guess I and others could call for Biden’s removal, right?

      787

      Bitter upset I bring up facts simply because people here have not brought it up to him in months.

      No matter how much you deny it, you are WOKE!

      I bring it up in context of your credibility because you accuse me of something I’m not. I NEVER supported Pootin and you will NEVER find a post where I supported him. I dare you to find one.

      Criticizing Zelenskyy is not the same as supporting Pootin.

      If you guys don’t understand that, I don’t know what to say because evidently you lack basic understanding of the English language.

    776. jason says:

      Was Biden duly elected too?”

      We will put that one in tomorrow’s Putin excuse list.

      Because the vote count in the US had fraud, Putin is free to kill Ukrainians.

    777. jason says:

      Bitter, according to Tgca Clown, because we disagreed months ago on what constituted wokiness, we cannot now agree that Putin is a war criminal that has to be confronted and cannot be allowed to invade any country he wants, commit genocide against Ukrainians and recreate the Soviet Union.

      Wins the Convoluted Logic Award for March, anyway.

    778. Tgca says:

      802

      You complain Biden was not duly elected but you’re worried about Pootin being duly ejected.

      Got it!

      Jadon worrying about what’s happening in someone else’s house before worrying what’s going on in his own house.

    779. jason says:

      Criticizing Zelenskyy is not the same as supporting Pootin.’

      When you compare him to Stalin while giving Putin a pass, it certainly is.

      If you were famous like Tucker, you would be on Russian State TV, same Russian propaganda and talking points.

    780. jason says:

      Right, I can believe Biden’s election was stolen AND agree with him that Putin should not remain in power.

      Next question?

    781. Phil says:

      Sure, the vote count was a fraud.

      Don’t worry.

      Normal.

      Nothing to see here.

    782. jason says:

      And I am not worried about Putin being duly ejected, I hope he is.

    783. jason says:

      If I wasn’t lazy I would start a “Tgca list of red herrings and deflections to cover for Putin”.

      But some are really hilarious. Bitter is woke. Biden didn’t really win GA, WI and AZ.

      As Confucius said, lapdogs will be lapdogs.

    784. Tgca says:

      Jadon refuses to vote in his own country because of corruption but is concerned about whether people in other countries vote was legitimate, and he’s ready to go to war to remove that country’s leader because of the legitimacy of voting.

      That’s like a prostitute protesting a politician who got caught cheating on his wife as immoral and should resign.

      It defies consistency of logic.

      Here is a surprising Alaska Senate Poll courtesy of RRR:

      AK-Sen Poll 3/14-3/16 by Cygnal (B+) 500 LV
      Tshibaka (R) 51%
      Murkowski (R) 49%

      First ballot is Kelly Tshibaka (R) 45%, Lisa Murkowski (R) 29%. Murkowski has an 87% disapproval rate with Republicans. With a serious Democrat running their is a good chance Murkowski ends up in 3rd place but so far there is no serious Democrat running.

      Good oxymoron.

    790. Bitterlaw says:

      Calling me woke is an erroneous opinion. It is not a fact.

      You comparing Zelensky to Stalin is a fact. You posted it. You can argue that it was your opinion. However, it is a fact that you posted it.

    791. Phil says:

      Biden speaking in public.

      The usual train wreck. No biggie.

      Has Tina called the Murkowski challenger Chewbacca yet?

    793. jason says:

      Bitter, I am sorry but you lost the warmongering competition.

      I was just “promoted” to “ready to go to war to remove that country’s leader”.

      Suck it.

    794. Tgca says:

      You specifically comment in 791 accusing me of being an appeaser because you’re suggesting something I never said about Russia vs Ukraine voting.

      You accuse me of giving Pootin a pass and not Zelenskyy.

      That’s not my issue. My issue has always been two-fold.

      1st, the US should NOT lead the effort for a NFZ or boots on the ground. We should participate and support it ONLY once Europe and/or NATO commits to that.

      2nd, support the Ukrainian cause but don’t prop up Zelenskyy as a hero or a leader to aspire to because of his past corruption. Prior to the war, the US viewed Zelenskyy as corrupt but now it’s ok he’s corrupt?

      That’s where we disagree. None of that is appeasement.

    795. Phil says:

      Murkowski is a joke…but she’ll win. Democrats aren’t even putting up a serious candidate. They are unified behind Murkowski….and why wouldn’t they be? A Liz Cheney “Republican”. Hey, if you are Schumer a Romney, Cheney Senator from a red state…it doesn’t get much better than that. Votes for impeachment, a vote against Kavanaugh? Beautiful.

    796. jason says:

      Looks like Chewbacca has a multi-racial family.

      Won’t stop her from being called a racist, bet on it.

    797. jason says:

      Murkowski voted against HR1 and ending the filibuster.

      EVERY Dem voted for HR1, even Manchin and Sinema.

      I am fine with Chewbacca as Senator, but Murkowski is still better than any Dem in AK.

    798. Phil says:

      If you wanted a better example of the uniparty in DC you’d be hard pressed to find a better example than Murkowski. Liz might be the ultimate example but Murkowski is up there.

    799. Phil says:

      Marginally better

      Fact is though a red state like Alaska should do a lot better than Murkowski. A real waste.

    800. jason says:

      That’s where we disagree.”

      Zzzzzzz.. sorry but you don’t get to tell me where we disagree.

      I disagree with ALL your hundreds of justifications and attempts to “normalize” and deflect Putin’s horrific actions and hundred of posts repeating Putin propaganda and talking points.

      Once you compared Zelensky to Stalin while giving Putin a pass you revealed your true colors, and no amount of BS is going to erase it. As Bitter said, you own it and there is no coming back.

      Puhhhhhleeze don’t pretend we are on the same page or on the same side. We are not.

    801. jason says:

      I agree Murkowski is way too liberal for AK. But I am not into sending any messages by a Mikey Maneuver that would send a liberal Dem to the Senate.

    802. Meldrim says:

      So I signed off at 12:47 a.m., and I see that there have been almost 100 posts since then, at least a dozen of them apparently about my views on Russia and Ukraine. Fortunately, since I don’t read Tsla’s undecipherable posts, I could go through them all fairly quickly. Let me just say that I want the U.S. to do everything that it can, short of our military attacking Russia or Russian soldiers (which would be a declaration of war on Russia), to stop Putin. I would give the Ukrainians F22s if they could fly them, and I wouldn’t give a squirt if Putin treats that as a “provocation” or whatnot. Frankly, it’s not surprising that Tsla is such a fan of Putin, given that they’re both snowflakes who insist that everyone be mindful of their feelings lest they throw a tantrum.

    803. Meldrim says:

      BTW, of all of those posts since 12:57 a.m., the only worthwhile ones were (i) SDC’s post regarding the Trafalgar poll re: Americans’ views on Putin, (ii) Sheeple’s post on the Alaska Senate poll, and (iii) Jason’s hilarious post asking “Has Tina called the Murkowski challenger Chewbacca yet?”

    804. Phil says:

      Great. I’ll just check back in 24 hours for Meldrim’s next list of worthwhile posts. Save me a lot of reading.

    805. jason says:

      I am honored that I made Meldrim’s list of worthwhile posts.

      Suck it, lesser beings!

      Frankly, it’s not surprising that Tsla is such a fan of Putin, given that they’re both snowflakes who insist that everyone be mindful of their feelings lest they throw a tantrum.”

      Heh, Tgca to say this means Meldrim agrees “more with him” in 3, 2, 1.

    807. Tgca says:

      816

      Bitter is a LIAR!

      Please go back and get the original post I said about the Stalin comparison.

      I specifically used Stalin as an example of what we did in WW2 to work with a leader we later regretted trusting.

      I specifically stated the comparison had nothing to do with the atrocities Stalin did after WW2.

      You and Jadon purposely distort it with your silly list because neither of you have been able to influence others to your side so you call people appeasers which is the same MO used by the left calling people RACIST.

      That is a FACT! I will repost the post if necessary to show ALL here you are a LIAR!

    808. jason says:

      Here we go, 50 more posts to avoid owning what Tgca actually wrote.

      He compared Zelensky to Stalin, a man who killed 60 million people, while giving Putin, responsible for horrific atrocities in Ukraine, a pass.

      FACT!

    809. jason says:

      neither of you have been able to influence others to your side”

      Frankly, I don’t know how many people you have convinced to support Putin’s side.

      Doesn’t sound like Meldrim is one of them does it?

      “Frankly, it’s not surprising that Tsla is such a fan of Putin, given that they’re both snowflakes who insist that everyone be mindful of their feelings lest they throw a tantrum.”

    810. jason says:

      When you have to write 100 posts “explaining your post” then probably you shouldn’t have written it in the first place.

    811. Tgca says:

      811

      The same could be said of GWB.

      The world could have called for his removal from office because he led an illegal invasion of Iraq and was responsible for hundreds of thousands that died that ultimately destabilized parts of the Middle East.

      I bet you would have a hissy fit if the UN and other world leaders had called for GWB to be removed from office.

      You are blinded by your radical ideology that war is the answer to everything and the US is always right when in fact that is often not the case.

    812. Tgca says:

      I don’t support Pootin. Never did! My posts prove it.

      You LIE as usual. Just like when I proved by posts you LIED about Dr. Fow-chee it’s easy to prove you LIE about calling others appeasers.

      It’s people like you that disgrace the US and give us a bad reputation around the world because you want to go on and have constant wars to force people into your views.

    813. jason says:

      “you want to go on and have constant wars to force people into your views.”

      LOL

      My warmongering status is being constantly upgraded.

      Earlier I was “ready to go to war to remove Putin”, now I want “constant wars to force people in my views”.

      Canada beware!

    814. jason says:

      The world could have called for his removal from office because he led an illegal invasion of Iraq’

      What was “illegal” about it?

      And so now you are digging even deeper and comparing Zelensky to Saddam Hussein?

      Really?

      You can own that too. No 50 posts denying it.

    815. Tgca says:

      836

      Once again, you show yourself to be a hypocrite. You post significantly more than anyone at HHR for years, as has been pointed out before.

      Out of this thread. You have posted 275 times. I posted 165 times, mostly in response to your posts.

      In the last thread, of 2,000 posts, you posted nearly 550 times compared to my 360.

      In the post prior to that, of 1,671 posts, you posted 481 compared to my 200.

      See the trend here? You post on significantly more than anyone here, usually with insults and distortions but you have the gall to accuse others of posting in volume.

      Pure HYPOCRISY!!!

    816. jason says:

      You are blinded by your radical ideology that war is the answer to everything”

      Wow.

      The guy who spends all his time trashing “Amerika” and trying to justify the unjustifiable accuses me of radical ideology?

      Yeah, got to love it here.

    817. Tgca says:

      The UN issued a statement it was ILLEGAL! The vast majority of tje world was opposed to it.

      You can’t have it both ways and says when the UN countries say bad things about Pootin, that is valid but it’s not valid when the US did it. I’m pointing out your hypocrisy. In my opinion, both Pootin and GWB can be deemed war criminals.

      The US went into a country trying to democratize it and failed and was responsible for hundreds of thousands of deaths including over 4,000 American soldiers.

      That would be a war crime in most instances if the US did not carry the clout it did around the world.

    818. Tgca says:

      842

      My Amerika posts are mocking the trend towards socialism in the US by many.

      Your posts are serious warmongering that will lead to unnecessary deaths of US soldiers and innocent civilians.

      That’s the difference!

    819. Tgca says:

      840

      I said no such thing about Zelenskyy.

      They’re you go again. Pulling the equivalent of the race card to deflect on your own hypocrisy.

      This is your MO. Everyone here knows that.

      Bait and switch. A tactic right out of the Dems playbook.

    820. jason says:

      I don’t care how many times you post, I am sure you would win a word count. Most of it is repetive drivel.

      I refer to the fact you will post 100 times on the same subject ad nauseam because you are childishly triggered and want attention.

      My posts are varied and I cover a lot of subjects.

      For example, while you shill for Putin and repeat Russian propaganda over and over, I have posted today on the Beau Biden Foundation and Chewbacca in AK.

      GFY.

      Interesting discussion on a Kyiv newspaper blog:

      Deano Martin
      Thank you for such an in depth report. How do you assess that the Ukrainian Air Force has maintained an 80% survival rate? I would imagine all Ukrainian airfields were destroyed early by the Russians or are now controlled by them. Do you have any intel on how they are operating? Thank you

      Jason Neighbors
      What’s known is that the Ukrainian air force is operating and, given the situation, operating effectively. And that’s probably all we’ll know until the war is over, because the Ukrainians would be extremely foolish to give away any operational info on just how they are doing it.

      Tony Verreos
      As much as we’d all like to know more now, that’s not a safe topic for discussion. We should expect the Russians are monitoring all outlets of social media.

      Cue Randy Quaid’s “I’ve been sayin’ it. You all know I’ve been sayin’ it”:

      NY GOV DEM (Siena):

      Gov Kathy Hochul 52%, Jumaane Williams 12%, Tom Suozzi 11%

      Hochul 38%, Andrew Cuomo 30%, Suozzi 10%, Williams 8%

      10:27 AM · Mar 28, 2022·Twitter Web App

      Andrew Cuomo can swoop into the NY gubernatorial race and have a strong chance in the Democrat primary. I told you all the day that he resigned (or maybe it was the next day) that he had done so before he was about to get impeached so as not to be disqualified from holding future statewide office and that he just might jump into the gubernatorial race right before the April 7 deadline. Polls like this just might convince Cuomo to jump in and give Democrats a much bigger headache–and if he wins, it greatly would improve Lee Zeldin’s odds of pulling off the upset and reclaiming the governorship for the GOP and becoming by far the most conservative NY governor in living memory.

      I don’t whine about Zelenskyy. I point out facts about him and your hypocrisy.

      You prop up a corrupt leader who has done a number of things you are supposedly against and often rail against.

      1. He imprisons folks without trials.
      2. He accuses one of his team members of treason with no proof and has him executed without a trial.
      3. He has disbanded opposition political parties so he is the sole decision maker in the country.
      4. He has disbanded the independent media to consolidate it into a state media media that he controls.
      5. He calls for a new world order to go in and make changes to other countries, as needed, within 24 hours
      6. He lets his oligarch friends escape the law through his corrupt judicial system.
      7. He got busted shifting assets for him and his wife into offshore accounts which is not legal in his country.
      8. He lied to his country when he claimed he diversified his assets after being elected to only later find out they were shifted through complex shell companies to friends who then send money back to his wife through dividends.
      9. He got caught taking trips abroad and refusing transparency required by their laws, after he accused others of doing this.

      The list goes on and on. He appears corrupt to the bone but you glorify him as a leader to aspire to the same level you did with the corrupt Dr. Fow-chee.

      Pootin can be evil scum who deserves to lose the war but this still does not have anything to do with the above FACTS about Zelenskyy.

      Both can be true!

      I don’t always agree with Meldrim and we’ve had our petty fights too but what I’ve always appreciated is his ability to post in detail his view and how he came to that conclusion. His posts may sometimes be lengthy but at least he takes the time to share his rationale. I prefer that over sound bites or strictly name-calling to shut people down.

      Just the other day he was being mocked by a certain poster here that is the Gold Medal winner for number of posts at any given time.

      I did not get into the fight but at least Meldrim explained his view.

      Whether you agree with his or any one’s views or not is another thing but everyone should be entitled to their view without being defined by character assassinations that have absolutely no basis in fact.

    836. jason says:

      Hey Tgca, f-ck off.

      We are not on the same side, we are not going to “agree” on anything related to Ukraine.

    837. jason says:

      A lot of what Tgca accuses Zelensky of is hearsay and propaganda drivel.

      And a lot of it results from martial law which is certainly justifiable during a war.

      I asked Tgca Clown previously if he would agree to shut down pro-Russia parties and pro-Russia media propaganda if the Russians had occupied 20% of the US, was bombing all the major cities, and had laid siege of Washington and New York.

      Still waiting for an answer.

    838. Tgca says:

      Jadon proves my point.

      He cannot accept any view unless it is 100% aligned with his view. Otherwise, that other view is drivel or trash or the person is an appeaser.

      Huh, no.

      No free lunch. You made your bed, now lie in it.

      Now if you want to apologize for comparing Zelensky’s policies to Putin, apologize for comparing Zelensky to Stalin, apologize for repeating Putin talking points hundreds of times, apologize for failing to note the correct spelling of your own country, apologize for trashing your own country as justification for war crimes and atrocities by Putin, maybe those that believe in redemption will forgive you.

      I won’t.

    840. jason says:

      I accept the view that we are on opposite sides.

    841. Tgca says:

      864

      Martial law does not require:

      1. Banning opposition political parties.
      2. Banning independent media and concentrating all media through one gubbermint source and view.
      3. Executing someone on your team you have suspicions about without a trial.

      …and for the record, these other allegations have been made against him for years and reported by European newspapers with much credibility.

      He tried to explain away WHY he used offshore accounts for his assets and his trips abroad so clearly they were not made up as Jadon claims because why would he then try to rationalize them if they weren’t true? Why not just deny they occurred?

      Jadon believes anything bad about any Dem but refuses to believe credible stories about Ukraine corruption, the most corrupt country in Europe.

    842. jason says:

      A lot of drivel and BS and facts not in evidence but no answer to the question.

    843. Tgca says:

      867

      I just posted in 869 actions of Zelenskyy that occurred and are truthful and comparable to actions of Pootin so there is no need to apologize for something we know he did that Pootin also does.

      As for US actions, you refuse to acknowledge what most Americans and others around the world already know about the US, that it has made mistakes and been wrong on a number of its policies and responsible for the loss of innocent lives for unnecessary acts of war and has never been held accountable for it. This is not to say that these mistakes were nefariously planned in all cases but the US at times did go on warmongering adventures and many people died because of it. Why can’t you accept that fact?

      This is no different than the fact the US practices on slavery and interring Japanese-Americans in concentration camps was wrong too and they had to finally admit that.

    844. jason says:

      I will tell you what.

      You can admit we are on different sides.

      That makes it clear and very simple.

      But you can’t be Putin’s lapdog and pretend you are on the same side I am.

      That dog won’t hunt.

    845. jason says:

      This is no different than the fact the US practices on slavery and interring Japanese-Americans in concentration camps”

      Uhhhh… new material for why it is ok for Putin to commit atrocities in the Ukraine now.

      The US had slavery 150 years ago and Japanese were interred 75 years ago.

      Thanks for the contribution.

    846. Tgca says:

      870

      Again, when it comes to the US, Jadon refuses accountability but then goes on his pedestal preaching freedom and the right thing to do when it comes to other countries.

      This is the reason the US has been losing its respected leadership role in the world and has a credibility problem when it comes to foreign policy.

      I’m sure Jadon excuses the abuses of Vietnamese civilians by certain US soldiers too because accepting responsibility makes the US look weak in his eyes,

    847. Tgca says:

      873

      …and the US admitted it was wrong there too so why can’t you admit it was wrong in Iraq 2?

      This has nothing to directly do with Zelensky or Pootin. It has to do with YOUR credibility in determining what is right and what is wrong.

      “U.S.—As The Babylon Bee faces its fifth day suspended from Twitter, users are increasingly being forced to get their fake news from a different source: CNN.

      Indeed, sources from within the news organization claim they have seen an increase in engagement and impressions as satire-starved users have been forced to wean themselves off The Babylon Bee and follow CNN instead.

      “Wow, we’ve seen a massive spike in followers!” said an excited Brian Stelter as he obsessively refreshed the official CNN Twitter account. “Dozens have joined in the last few days alone! Dozens!!!”

      “Things are really turning around now!”

      CNN immediately tried to capitalize on the influx of followers looking for good, comedic fake news by publishing an article on how Joe Biden is doing a great job and does not have dementia, a report on how World War III could have a negative effect on trans BIPOC representation in Netflix films, and an in-depth investigation into how many ice cream scoops Trump got as president.

      “These guys are hilarious. Way funnier than The Babylon Bee!” wrote one Twitter user in reply to an op-ed saying that gas prices aren’t under the president’s control and that ultimately they were Trump’s fault. Similar responses telling CNN how hilarious they are could be seen under every article they posted during The Bee’s time in Twitter jail.

      Zelenskyy Slams Macron, France: ‘They Are Afraid of Russia’

      I don’t think France is afraid of Russia in this matter. France is still doing business in Russia, and as I previously posted, has been moving in on areas where other countries and companies left a void. Whether that is right or wrong is another issue but I say France is acting more out of greed or opportunity than fear here.

      I think France is more concerned about its business relationship with Russia than the Ukrainian people and Zelenskyy has trouble understanding that no country in Europe or anywhere else wants to harm their economies over Ukraine.

      It may be wrong but it is what it is. In essence, profits over people seems to be the approach countries are taking in this war.

      …and Zelenskyy is NOT going to insult his way to getting his desired level of support either. In fact, it could work against him if he keeps accusing multiple countries of, in essence, being cowards or selfish for putting their own 1st before Ukraine.

      There is NO money pouring into G’s campaign from anybody, per the MO Scout (authoritative). Two richy-rich guys (one is a co-founder of Home Depot) have PACs that are G’s only contributors. Both rich guys are conservative activists, not DEMs.

      Per the Scout, no-one in MO will host a FR for G.

      I thought this was interesting: G showed up at a GOP Lincoln Day event in Dunklin County in the Bootheel yesterday– unannounced. He’s afraid that if his appearances are announced ahead of time, he’ll have to answer hostile questions from reporters.

      I think his latest showing in the Remington poll, 21%, is probably G’s ceiling. I haven’t run into any poster at any site who thinks G can grow his support at this point.

      Well, Predictit, contrary to what the name suggests, is not really predictive.

      It reflects current polling and conventional wisdom, not future results. So like polls it is a snapshot in time, with a few more considerations than just polls. I check it because people who have a financial stake are more cautious than those just rendering opinions. Right now Greitens is about a 5 to 1 underdog for the nomination by people willing to bet, I think that is about right.

    866. Tgca says:

      The French are NOT afraid of Russia. France has NOOKYOOLER capability to protect itself and lay waste to Russia if needed just as much as Russia could do to France.

      France is acting in a manner to better position themselves with contract preference statuses and probably be rewarded by Russia for it.

      After the war, all will go back to normal as can be in Europe and Russia will give France preference over other countries.

    867. jason says:

      For once I give Biden the benefit of the doubt on 2 of the gaffes. I don’t remember the other 3.

      Obviously he bungled the “in kind” statement, but in fairness to him I think he did mean “we will respond accordingly” not that we would use chemical weapons. He said in-kind because he is senile, not because he intends to use chemical weapons against the Russians.

      The “regime change” comment was really stupid, even though I agree with the underlying message. I think the US and the rest of the free world should try to undermine Putin’s hold on power, but it is asinine to announce it in public. He should have said Putin’s behavior is unacceptable to civilized society, without saying “he can’t stay in power”.
      Neville Allen is not wrong that Biden’s public statement can be used to strengthen Putin at home.

      Putin just can’t help being a sleaze ball:

      “Former Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich and two Ukrainian peace negotiators are said to have suffered symptoms of poisoning, following a meeting in Kyiv.

      It’s very mysterious. On the evening of 3 March, they met in Kyiv, right in the heart of Ukrainian territory.

      Later that evening – three of them, according to the investigative website Bellingcat, suffered symptoms of nerve agent poising.

      They had inflamed skin, irritated eyes and severe pain behind the eyes – symptoms which lasted all night.

      None of them had eaten anything more, according to Bellingcat, than chocolate and water.

      Chemical weapons specialists have examined this case and concluded that they believe it was intentional.

      But we have no idea who did it. There is no claim of responsibility.

      Inevitably people will be wondering if this was the work of the GRU, Russia’s military intelligence service, who Britain concluded did the Novichok Salisbury poisoning.

      There is no word from Russia and no proof as to who was behind it.

      Somebody, it seems, wanted to send a warning to those taking part in the peace talks. This was not a lethal dose, it was a warning.”

    871. jason says:

      Zelensky is hanging tough, he is not really giving Putin anything.’

      “Other than the interview taking place and being promptly censored by the Russian government, there wasn’t a lot of news made. It is obvious that Zelensky’s negotiating position has not changed (Russia’s Invasion of Ukraine Reaches Its Culmination Point and Zelensky Plays Hardball in the Peace Negotiations) in the past week. This, undoubtedly, reflect the success the Ukrainian military is having on the battlefield and the state of negotiations with NATO and EU countries for aid. It is also significant that Zelensky is offering Putin exactly nothing that he has demanded. Zelensky is not resigning. The Ukrainian Army will not be disbanded (in fact, it will grow and become more capable). Zelensky will not recognize any change of status in Donbas and Crimea without a referendum. Russian will not be elevated to “official language” status without a referendum changing the constitution. In short, it is hard to see any common ground for negotiations”

      It is tragic Putin sent a lot of Russian youth off to die in war, without proper training or logistical support:

      “…the Russians are surrounded by the Ukrainian army. I start to think about these Russian kids telling “zombie lies” — the phrase comes from the chief rabbi of Kyiv’s Brodsky Synagogue, Moshe Azman — sitting in their metal boxes, waiting to die.

      “The Ukrainians have put up a drone video armed with thermal imaging. It’s so chilly out there that the Russian tank crews sit with their engines running through the night.

      The intro:

      RAS reports that 84% of RVs say “education will be either very important or somewhat important to them” when they vote this year.

      For consecutive 24 years, per RAS, voters have preferred the DEMs on, “Which party do you think will be best on education?” Heretofore, education has always been among the DEMs’ best issues.

      The punchline:

      RAS says that THIS year, unlike the last 24 years, RVs favor the GOP over DEMs on education by 7 points. WOMEN actually favor the GOP outright on education. There has also been a big falloff among AA voters on this issue, per RAS, altho AA voters still favor DEMs..

      This is a sea change.

      Glenn Youngkin showed how it’s done, for those GOP candidates shrewd enough to emulate his example.

      Biden’s proposed budget includes a huge increase for the FBI to fight “domestic terrorism.” GOP candidates could tie that to the FBI’s recent designation of school board protesters as “domestic terrorists,” imo.

      The White House is now forced to walk back President Biden’s walk back of the White House’s walk back of President Biden’s off the cuff call over the weekend for regime change in Russia.

    904. Tgca says:

      It’s reckless for POTUS to publicly call for regime change in another country where the people duly elected a president. This is how wars start!

      It also shows the arrogance of the US as many also may feel the same way about the US.

      Remember, GWB ILLEGALLY invaded Iraq and caused the death of hundreds of thousands of innocent people. He was considered a war criminal by a significant portion of the world.

      If it’s ok to call for Pootin’s removal for ILLEGALLY invading a country then it is equally legitimate to have other countries calling for GWB removal from office at the time and treating him as a war criminal.

      …and what is the next step. Who is going to remove Pootin?

      Is the US going to go in and do it by force? Great way to start a NOOKYOOLER war with Russia.

      Pure stoopidity and arrogance on part of the US and the reason Biden has pretty much been ridiculed on this around the world, and rightfully so.

      I agree too, I said it several times above. Putin is a ruthless dictator and a war criminal, he should not stay in power.

      But what actions is Biden taking to make it happen?

    907. Tgca says:

      You can hear the glee in Jadon’s voice when he speaks of corruption in Ukraine.

      Jadon, a recent convert to supporting authoritarian rule criticizes others for what most of the world agrees is inappropriate diplomacy in statements by Biden.

      Would Reagan have ever said something this stoopid publicly?

      Reagan agreed publicly the USSR was no longer evil after meeting with them. I doubt he felt that in his heart but he knew as POTUS his words are very impactful on world events and would never say anything like that in his official role when he was trying to negotiate solutions to a complex problem.

    908. jason says:

      Tgca again comparing the (US-UK and third country coalition) campaign to remove Saddam to Putin’s campaign to annex Ukraine.

      The comparison between Ukraine-Iraq is completely false, the comparison between Zelensky and Saddam is false, just as false as comparing Zelensky to Stalin.

      Utterly asinine but Tgca is halfway to China now.

    909. Tgca says:

      If you’re gonna be all tough and say he should not stay in power then back up your words with what should be done about it.

      None. Biden is all talk…as usual. Always likes to talk tough. Putin is in Ukraine precisely because Biden is anything but tough. Talk is cheap.

      The regime change inference from the weekend was Biden playing to the American electorate. Just like his red lines. He plays tough guy when drawing them….when actually enforcing them would be the real indication of the tough guy.

      All this is Biden’s tear down that wall speech according to the neocons. Krystal and his his band of idiots are drooling over it. LOL. In fact they are drooling over more empty words from this fool. Did you see the Reagan administration walking back any of Reagan’s words? That’s because Reagan’s words actually had meaning and something behind them.

    915. Tgca says:

      Invading a country ILLEGALLY and unprovoked is a war crime regardless of who does it. Doesn’t matter the size, location, or reason.

      The US would not even take it to a vote at the UN Security Council because it could only gather 4 votes with the other 11 members refusing to support it.

      I am not saying Reagan was a GREAT leader, I’ve never said that because I don’t believe that. He was a good leader but not in the “great” level. That is right-wing propaganda like left-wing propaganda thinking JFK was a great leader.

      I gave an example showing you how Reagan would have handled it to show you how wrong you are because I know anything Reagan says or did you followed blindly.

    917. Tgca says:

      Yes, parts of the world you travel to including countries in Europe who opposed the Iraq war and whose people called GWB a war criminal at the time.

      I have belonged to professional organizations and I can tell you if I ever assaulted anyone at a function, I would be banned.

      If this happened at work, I would be fired.

      There is absolutely no excuse for this under any circumstances.

      The fact that he got a standing ovation shortly thereafter and hugs upon receiving his award is disgraceful. These are Hollywood values. He should have been escorted out of the event. To allow him to sit down and continue in the festivities was outrageous and sends the wrong message.

    939. Tgca says:

      Upon further reflection, I think Will Smith should be sent to Ukraine so he can be castrated along with Russian soldiers.

      That will send a message that aggression and unwarranted attacks are not tolerated.

The group presented evidence in the form of epaulets, stripes, and nametags taken from the deceased servicemen which was published on their Facebook page.”

    941. jason says:

      Tgca devastated he was left off this list, has written a nasty letter to complain.

      “Wladimir Klitschko told Newsmax on Monday that Tucker Carlson and Candace Owens, who have vocally opposed helping Ukraine, are “part of” Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, citing their opposition to US support for the country.

      Wladimir Klitschko, the former boxing champion whose brother Vitali is mayor of Kyiv, made the comments during an appearance on “Eric Bolling The Balance” on Monday.

      He was responding to a question by Bolling about what he would say to the “small group” of American who believe the conflict in Ukraine is “not America’s problem.” He named Owens and Carlson as examples.

      “If you passively observe what is going on, and we do share the same principles of freedom and democratic principles, like the United States, like the Western world, so to speak. If you are passively observing, you are part of this invasion, blood is on your hands, too,” Klitschko said.

      Klitschko, a former heavyweight boxing champion, joined the Ukrainian Territorial Defence Forces in Kyiv a few weeks before Russia’s invasion of the country. Vitali Klitschko, also a former boxing champion, has been mayor of Kyiv since 2014.

      Carlson has repeatedly praised Russian President Vladimir Putin in the lead-up to the invasion and also questioned why America should assist Ukraine in its fight against Russia.

      Even though he has changed his view of Putin since the invasion, Carlson was still critical of the support for Ukraine by Americans earlier this month, calling it “the largest political flash mob in American history,” The Independent reported.

      Owens also received backlash for her claim that Ukraine “wasn’t a thing until 1989” and that it was “stupid” to suggest Putin was carrying out a “genocide” in the country, according to The Independent.

      Her words were endorsed by the Russian embassy in Washington D.C. after tweeting the phrase “Russian lives matter,” Salon reported.”

Putin Appeasers, enjoy!

      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.
      13) No WMD were found in Iraq
      14) Zelensky called for Biden to step up to the plate
      15) Zelensky is a “leftist”
      16) Zelensky is “corupt”
      17) Zelensky struck a “bold an ominous chord” and said he would not surrender unconditionally to Putin.
      18) Zelensky “placed an opposition leader under house arrest
      19) Zelensky declared martial law
      20) Zelensky is “like Putin”
      21) We need to have a better President, Defense Secretary and CJCS before we can stand up to Putin
      22) Bitter is woke
      23) Putin was “duly elected”
      24) Opposing Putin is “Viking Diplomacy”

      “Natalya, 33, told how two Russian soldiers came to the family home near Kyiv and shot dead her husband in the front yard. Soldiers then came into the house and raped her repeatedly for several hours. Natalya said she could hear her four-year-old crying whilst hiding in boiler room.

      Natalya, 33, whose name has been changed, told how a Russian commander and another soldier came to the family’s home in a small village near Kyiv after dark on March 9 and shot dead her husband Andrey, 33, in the front yard.

      Moments later, Natalya heard footsteps in the house, which Andrey had built years earlier, and saw the Russian commander – who told her his name was Mikhail Romanov – and a younger soldier dressed in black.

      The mother told The Times the younger soldier pointed a gun to her head and spat: ‘You’d better shut up or I’ll get your child and show him his mother’s brains spread around the house.’

      ‘[The younger soldier] told me to take my clothes off. Then they both raped me, one after the other,’ Natalya told the newspaper. ‘They didn’t care that my son was in the boiler room crying.

      ‘They told me to go shut him up and come back. All the time they held the gun to my head and taunted me, saying: “How do you think she sucks it? Shall we kill her or keep her alive?”

      Btw, the “equipment lost” score is at 2054 vs. 574 Russia vs. Ukraine, about a 4-1 ratio. Not really that good for Ukraine since the Russians have more equipment ready to replace.

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

      For Wes (and others)
      Caveats:
      1. Poll was one done by WV GOP
      2. Lots of “undecideds”
      3. Manchin’s senate seat election is way down the road
      ********************************************

      “?Poll: If Manchin Vote for Biden Supreme Court Nominee He Loses By 9% To A Republican

      Charleston, WV- Last Friday, Senator Joe Manchin announced his intention to vote to confirm Biden Supreme Court nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson. Based on a poll conducted by the West Virginia Republican Party, if Manchin votes for the Biden pick it will be the end of his political career. From the polling memo (which can be found here):

      When asked, West Virginia voters would prefer a Republican Candidate over Senator Joe Manchin by 44% to 35% if he votes to confirm Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson as the next Supreme Court Justice. Based on party preference, 16% of Republicans polled and 67% of Democrats stated they would vote for Senator Manchin if he votes to confirm Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson. Across all parties only 35% of females and 34% of males stated they would vote for Senator Joe Manchin if he votes to confirm Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson.”

    963. Wes says:

      West Virginians are too stupid to vote Manchin out of office, Walt. He’ll keep kicking them in the face. They’ll keep sending him back to Washington. That’s the unfortunate reality of the situation.

      On the other side of the coin regarding MY PEOPLE, I am deeply ashamed of Will Smith.

      He FINALLY apologized to Chris Rock for violently assaulting him ONLY after much media and Twitter backlash and the Academy issued another statement yesterday saying they will start an investigation into the matter.

      INVESTIGATION!!!

      What is there to investigate? We all saw what happened from video clips.

      He should be permanently expelled as an Academy member, banned from all future Academy venues, and have his award revoked, all which are permissible under their rules.

      He went on to party the night away and do impromptu musical performances after the Oscars. Doesn’t sound like someone who was deeply embarrassed by his actions until the consequences arose.

      He hurts the cause of MY PEOPLE! Another AA male deemed to lash out violently in public because he feels there was “disrespect.”

      Don’t give me any of this cultural crap about “disrespect” and “it’s not who I am” BS.

      I am a GAY AFRICAN AMERIKAN male and I would never resort to violence because I felt disrespected, which is almost everyday by RACISTS at HHR…though at times there is at least one HHR person I wanted to punch in the face…but I digress.

      “NYT: Russia says it will reduce attacks in northern Ukraine. Following the recent round of Ukraine-Russia negotiations in Turkey, Moscow said it would reduce the assault in the north, where Ukraine’s capital is located, the New York Times reported. The announcement came as Ukraine’s forces continue to successfully push Russian troops back around Kyiv.”

    974. Tgca says:

      …and one more point on Will Smith.

      We AA men don’t go around slapping other men. We punch. We beat them down. We f*ck them up! … but we don’t SLAP them.

      UK PM Boris Johnson also urges caution – saying he will judge Russia by its actions, not words

    1012. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      The Finnish President and head of NATO are in discussion regarding the process by which Finland joins NATO. Meanwhile Finland has always been prepared for a potential Russian attack:

      “If the worst fears of Europe are realised and the conflict in Ukraine spreads across the continent to other neighbours of Russia, then Finland will be ready.

      It has supplies. At least six months of all major fuels and grains sit in strategic stockpiles, while pharmaceutical companies are obliged to have 3-10 months’ worth of all imported drugs on hand.

      It has civilian defences. All buildings above a certain size have to have their own bomb shelters, and the rest of the population can use underground car parks, ice rinks, and swimming pools which stand ready to be converted into evacuation centres.

      And it has fighters. Almost a third of the adult population of the Nordic country is a reservist, meaning Finland can draw on one of the biggest militaries relative to its size in Europe.

      “We have prepared our society, and have been training for this situation ever since the second World War,” says Tytti Tuppurainen, Finland’s EU minister. After spending eight decades living first in the shadow of the Soviet Union and now Russia, the threat of war in Europe “has not hit us as a surprise”.”

      Will Smith could be and should be charged with assault. The victim does not have to file a charge or be a witness, especially since the entire incident was recorded for all to see. There is no additional evidence the victim needs to provide to determine an assault occurred in this case.

      On one side, the pressure on Rock not to participate in assault charges would be enormous by my people in the AA community because it would be seen as helping the system bring down an AA male.

      On the other side, it sends the unintended message that it’s no big deal to assault someone if you’re doing it for what you perceive a good deed, in this case, standing up for your wife who was the butt of a joke.

      As predicted, this is about expanding Russia.

      “LONDON (Reuters) -The Russian-backed self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic in eastern Ukraine may consider joining Russia once it controls all of Ukraine’s Donetsk region, its news outlet cited separatist leader Denis Pushilin as saying on Tuesday.

      “As for joining the Russian Federation, as for the wish and aspiration, they have been clearly traced since 2014 – the desire to be in Russia,” Pushilin was quoted by the Donetsk News Agency as saying.

      He deserved to be fired but I think utility workers taking personal videos while performing hazardous work and posting them on their personal pages should also face severe disciplinary action. It is a safety issue, as well as potentially an invasion of privacy to be filming others depending on the circumstances.

      Does anyone want a utility person filming videos from above that might peer into their fenced yard or inside the 2nd story of their homes if the shades are not drawn?

      If her vote is needed, she will give it (Kavanaugh). If not she won’t (Barrett).

      She waited until Manchin declared his vote, so her vote won’t make a difference on Brown-Jackson.

      1073. So far the Ukrainians have been holding their positions in both Luhansk and Donetsk.

      Meanwhile there is a serious question if Putin is actually planning to cease the attacks around Kiev. The reality appears to be that not a lot of progress was made in the peace talks:

      “Meanwhile, the governor of Ukraine’s Chernihiv region says there is no let-up in attacks by Russia, despite its pledge to reduce military activity there.”

      If you want any additional proof that Biden is a complete moron, in this time military uncertainty and aggressive actions by Putin, nations like Germany, Israel, Finland are buying additional F-35 fighters jets. However Biden is reducing the number of F-35 jets the U.S. is yacquiring:

      “So why, while Russia is on the march in Europe and China is steadily growing its military presence in the Pacific, would the Biden administration suddenly cut the planned buy from an average of 80 over the last three years to a mere 61—when the expectation had been for an order of 94?

      Having followed the program for 20 years—prime contractor Lockheed Martin LMT is a longtime contributor to my think tank—I can cite chapter and verse on how well F-35 is performing.

      The fighter has met all its goals for stealth, the key to future survivability.

      It defeats adversary aircraft by a 20-to-1 margin in combat exercises.

      It greatly outperforms legacy fighters in air-to-air, air-to-ground, surveillance, jamming and other core missions.

      It costs much less to produce than a commercial jetliner.”

    1051. jason says:

      Joe Walsh, a true conservative:

      “I’m just so f-cking frustrated with Democrats. THEY DON’T FIGHT. My God, Republicans are burning our democracy down and I can’t find one Democrat who can rally the American people to put the fire out.

      If Dems can’t convince voters the GOP is anti-democracy, they deserve to lose.”

    1052. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      1085. This reminds me of the talk at the beginning of the Russian invasion that Russians would quickly occupy Kyiv. The Ukrainians are holding the line in Luhansk and Donetsk. They also are fighting hard in the areas of any “land bridge”, and have even taken back some territory. Also, despite heavy assault, Maripoul is still holding out.

    1053. jason says:

      Of course, I think you can never have too many.

      The real explanation is probably that the woke training budget doesn’t allow for that many planes.

      Trump hasn’t learned that burning bridges unnecessarily usually comes back to bite him.

      I made this point about Mo Brooks. Trump could have said he thought Brooks lost support and he was switching to someone else. Instead he decided to insult Brooks for no reason.

      You reap what you sow.

      “The Jan. 6 select committee seemed close to concluding that compelling Republican lawmakers to testify wasn’t worth the inevitable ugly fight. Then Rep. Mo Brooks dropped a bomb.

      The Alabama Republican revealed in a public statement last week that former President Donald Trump had repeatedly, and recently, raised the idea of attempting to rescind the 2020 election results and reinstall him as president. It was a stunning allegation that would show Trump not only attempted to subvert the 2020 election while in office, but that he is extracting promises from allies to try again if they take power in 2023.

      Brooks’ admission, which came hours after Trump unendorsed his flagging Senate candidacy, put renewed pressure on House investigators to obtain testimony from recalcitrant Republican colleagues. And then Brooks all but dared the committee to call him, hinting he might comply, when reporters asked him Tuesday if he would testify.

      “I will take that under advisement if they ever contact me,” he said.

      BBC update:

      “Russian forces are preparing to resume offensive operations, Ukrainian Defence Ministry spokesman Oleksandr Motuzyanyk has said, according to Reuters.

      They are still trying to take the besieged southern port city of Mariupol and the towns of Popasna and Rubizhne in Luhansk, with their main efforts focused on encircling Ukrainian troops in the east of Ukraine, he was quoted as saying.

      Some movements of Russian forces away from the Kyiv and Chernihiv regions have been observed, but the Ukrainian military command does not consider this to be a mass withdrawal, Motuzyanyk added.

      Russia said on Tuesday that it would pull back forces from the capital and from the northern city of Chernihiv, but says its position on Crimea and the eastern Donbas region has not changed.”

      Many companies have strict policies on what you post or publicly support on your own time even if you don’t identify where you work.

      For example, one company I worked for informed us during HR training that even if outside of work you had social media posts, attended events, associated with organizations they felt was not appropriate, that it was subject to Company disciplinary action including termination. This includes wearing objectionable clothing such as a hat, shirt or other clothing supporting such organizations they feel are objectionable.

      We saw a lot of Jan 6th protestors get fired for what was on their social media even if they did not commit a crime or get charged for it. Just being at the protest was enough for their termination.

      I don’t know to what level this has been litigated in various states or at the fed level but this is the world we live in today.

      Politico is pushing that. Politico is one stop shopping for finding out what DEMs are telling each other.

      Politico likes to add, “although Trump could still ruin GOP chances in November.”

      That widely-reported NBC poll, that was discussed here a few days ago, shows that the 2 top qualities/things that would cause voters to be more likely to support a candidate are “supports law enforcement” & “favors more oil & gas production.”

      The DEMs’ best issues are “supports Roe v. Wade” & “favors reducing prescription drug & medical costs.”

      Democrats have seen enough. There is no doubt now that Biden is done with the electorate. As I said, Democrats don’t any longer see him as salvageable. He’s no longer useful to them, and he is a gigantic anchor going into the midterms and beyond that into the 2024 Presidential year. What does the left do to those who are no longer useful? They have a track record, folks.

      How do I know Democrats have seen enough? That’s pretty easy. The NYT, Wahington Post, and CNN are no longer covering for Hunter Biden. After 18 months of relentlessly covering for him they now have all come out with long pieces readily acknowledging what we’ve all know for the last year and a half. The negative stories in the MSM are multiplying as we speak.

      Who do you think is feeding the Washington Post and CNN the negative information to go with on Hunter – and giving the NYT and Washington Post the go ahead to print it?

      Plus, the DEMs have 2 interesting primaries of their own to keep them home: Busch Valentine v. Kunce for SEN, & Rep. Cori Bush (D-inc; Squad) v State Senator Steve Roberts in MO-01. Roberts is quite capable of beating Cori Bush,* btw– that’s where the action is for DEMs in August.

Around seven-in-ten Americans (72%) have a lot or some confidence in Zelenskyy, higher than any other international leader asked about in a new Pew Research Center survey

      … only 6% say the same about Putin. Russian President Vladimir Putin receives dismal ratings, with only 6% of U.S. adults expressing confidence in him following his decision to invade Ukraine – an all-time low in surveys going back nearly two decades. The vast majority of Americans (92%) have little or no confidence in Putin’s handling of world affairs, including 77% who have none at all.”

      Nobody likes Putin. Nobody.

      Polling on his favorability is about like polling whether water is wet. Neither produce cliff hanger results.

      The question of relevance is concerning what American voters think about American responses to the invasion. Right now Americans overwhelmingly support arming the Ukranians and tough sanctions on Russia. They narrowly oppose a no fly zone and overwhelmingly are opposed to American troops on the ground there. I expect none of those results to change over time.

      US policy will remain to help the Ukranians to resist by supplying them with arms and sanction the hell out of the Russians. At the same time we won’t get directly involved and Bill Krystol and his Lincoln Project friends aren’t going to get the next was they crave.

      …but according to the latest and greatest reports from the Academy, he refused to leave.

      The Academy is meeting on April 18th to decide disciplinary actions and Smith will be given an opportunity to defend his actions. Defend WHAT? Assaulting and then bullying someone with profane language?

      The fact that many in the audience gave him a standing ovation when he accepted his award does not surprise me because after all, child rapist Polanski was also given a standing ovation when he won a few years back.

      Does anyone know if Utah RINO’s Pierre Delecto and Gov. Cox have endorsed Mr. Lee?

      ” Sen. Mike Lee (R) is in good shape for re-election according to a poll taken for Deseret News/Hinckley Institute of Politics. Lee easily comes out in top in a three way race with a Democrat and former presidential candidate Evan McMullin (I). The poll gave Lee 43% with 19% for McMullin and 11% for Democrat Kael Weston. Some Democrats have suggested that the party should not field a candidate in the general election and back McMullin as the candidate with the best chance to defeat Lee. A head-to-head matchup between Lee and McMullin was not tested in the poll.”(H/T: RRH)

I think his virtual speaking tour is a really ingenious media strategy. It also flatters smaller nation states, such as Slovenia– the most admired man in the world wants to talk to US.

      Z impresses me as being an excellent war leader thus far. Even those on other conservative blogs, who oppose or are leery about U.S. support for UKR, acknowledge that “UKR is winning the propaganda war.”

      There’s a lot of opposition to U.S. policy toward UKR around the conservative blogosphere, btw. It doesn’t get shouted down at Ace of Spades; Red State; Breitbart, or MANY others conservative blogs, as it does here.

      1149. MNW

      I don’t disagree on the war side or his media savvy, like Trump, or the propaganda effectiveness. What you do for war and survival is different than what you do in non-war situations.

      That’s why I believe in supporting the Ukrainian cause to expel Russia ASAP but not necessarily propping up the Ukrainian leader as someone to aspire to.

      There’s nothing wrong with saying we work with leaders on joint causes where we have common interests even though we disagree with them elsewhere.

      The US has done that with many undesirable leaders over the years including Stalin, Hussein, and Arafat. That is not the same as comparing leaders human rights records.

      Those that can’t understand these specific differences lack knowledge of how diplomacy works and problem-solving strategies that have been going on for centuries.

      That being said, I still have grave concerns about Zelenskyy as not only being corrupt, like his predecessors, but as someone pushing radically leftist agendas like I noted yesterday in post 1116 where Ukraine is now DEMANDING free speech in other countries be shut down because it would benefit them. How is that different than many dictators or the far left, MSM, or Big Tech infringing on free speech?

      More reasons to think Greiten’s wife’s “abuse” allegations are BS. Greitens may well be “scum” as mnw calls him, but as Tgca pointed out, not every allegation has to be believed. His wife is trying to get the custody management switched from MO to TX, and this new allegation is very “convenient”.

      “The news media blared headlines last week when the ex-wife of Republican Missouri Senate candidate Eric Greitens filed an affidavit in their child custody case claiming he abused her and their children back in 2018 when they were still married.

      But those reports ignored critical evidence sitting in public court files, a danger in family custody cases often steeped in nuances and emotional twists and turns.

      For instance, the public court file shows the ex-wife, Sheena Greitens, signed another affidavit in 2020 in Missouri declaring there were no “genuine issue as to any material fact” in the couple’s divorce and that sharing custody of their two children with Eric Greitens was “in the best interest of the minor children.” That affidavit conflicts with her new one and also made no mention of abuse.

      The court records also show Sheena Greitens recently lost two rulings in her bid to move management of the couple’s joint child custody from Missouri to her new home state of Texas, where she works as a college professor.”

      Sheeple, re: Susan Collins, she usually votes for SCOTUS nominees irrespective of the president who nominated them: She voted for Roberts, Alito, Kagan, Sotomayor, Gorsuch and Kavanaugh, and now will vote for Jackson. The reason that Collins gave for voting against Barrett was that the hearings and vote were scheduled too abruptly and with not enough time to consider the nominations; maybe it was bull shi’ite and she just didn’t want to cast a vote for Barrett a few weeks before her election in a state where she needed a lot of Biden voters to cross over to her in order to win, but, frankly, we didn’t need her vote so I didn’t really care. And given that KBJ is going to be confirmed anyhow, I’m not going to get too worked up about Collins voting to confirm her. As far as I’m concerned, the only important SCOTUS vote that Collins has had to make was for Kavanaugh in 2018–had she voted “no,” so would Manchin, and the nomination would have failed–and Collins passed the test with flying colors.

      Jason, Parson didn’t say that he preferred the Democrat, just that he doesn’t want to say whether he would vote for Greitens if he wins the nomination. Since there’s no “against the Democrat” lever in Missouri voting machines, maybe, if Greitens wins the GOP nomination, he’ll do the honorable thing and write in “Donald Duck” instead.

      BTW, Donald Trump is winking at GA Republicans that they shouldn’t vote for Gov. Kemp in the general (against Stacey Abrams!) if he beats David Perdue in the primary. That’s worse than refusing to answer a question about whether he’d vote for someone about whom he has just said is unfit for office and should be defeated in the primary.

      If I lived in MO, I’d vote for Greitens in the general because I’d rather have a scumbag Senator who can get expelled from the Senate if need be rather than a liberal Democrat who would be there for 6 freaking years, and maybe Parson would do the same, but it’s unreasonable expect him to say, seconds after his announcement that he believes Greitens’s wife and that Republicans should make sure to vote against the unfit Greitens in the Senate primary, that he will be voting for Greitens if he wins the primary. Saying that would take the sting out of his announcement, don’t you think?

      Mnw said there are other scandals, I accept his word, but I haven’t read anything about them. What I have read is the hairdresser thing where charges were dropped and there was prosecution misconduct, and the wife accusations that I am skeptical about.

      I would rather see Schmitt or Harztler win the nomination because I see them as 100% likely to win, while Greitens is probably like 80%.

She’s there just in case GOP primary voters F up and give Democrats a chance in the general.

      BTW, I looked it up, and the Busch woman with whom Harry Caray slept around and caused Gussie Busch to fire him from the Cardinals was the wife of Trudy’s half-brother Auggie Busch. So, no, it wasn’t Trudy whom Harry would take out to the ballgame.

      I believe, and I’ve read at some MO political blogs, that GOP leaders in MO are reluctant to denounce Greitens any further than they already have, for fear it might create an anti-establishment backlash in G’s favor. That MIGHT be why Gov. Parson stopped just short of calling on Greitens to withdraw yesterday.

      Busch Valentine’s candidacy, and her ability to self-fund, are playing into what could be a perfect storm for the MO GOP. Until Greitens started looking viable in the polls, the DEMs hadn’t planned to spend a dime on the MO SEN race. B-V is a nurse and has funded a school of nursing in MO, btw– she’s not chopped liver. She reminds me of Rep. Ann Wagner (R-inc; MO-02) in some ways.

      Potentially good news in New York State regarding redistricting:

      “Republicans have won the New York redistricting lawsuit (appeal pending). All three of the legislature’s maps have been struck down as illegal Democratic gerrymanders, and they have 12 days to redraw.”

    1164. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      So much for Biden’s promise to try and end natural gas drilling. Reality often hits hard and disolves bizarre green dreams.

      “Last year the United States exported 22 billion cubic meters of LNG to Europe, and now Biden is saying the United States will increase that number to 50 billion cubic meters by 2030.

      With gas prices soaring in Europe, the United States is already on track to meet that goal this year, according to analysis by the research firm IHS Markit. Gulf Coast LNG terminals including Cheniere Energy’s Sabine Pass and Venture Global’s Calciseau Pass are already sending more than 70 percent of their LNG to Europe.”

    1165. Phil says:

      Party ID D+6.

      LOL

      In their dreams.

      D+6 and the guy is at 39%? Think about that for a second. That’s a Nightmare approval for Biden especially with a bogus sample slanted his way.

      Regarding the D+6 fantasy, Gallup has had Republicans up in Party ID for the last nine months. Rasmussen uses R+1. Even the other MSM posters are using Party ID even. Baris has it currently at even even though he doesn’t weight specifically fo Party ID. He says he won’t be a bit surprised if the likely voter electorate on Election Day in November won’t be R+3 or 4.

      Point is that D+6 is an absolute fairytale.

      D+6? That’s hilarious.

      I agree on Pence. Another time and place he may have had better support of the working class but I think he lost a lot of that good will after the so-called Jan 6th insurrection.

      These folks want a fighter who takes interest in their cause and not just a talker who’ll promise them but not deliver because they’ve heard that for years, especially from Dems who have given up on them to chase the tranny and woke agenda.

      I think there has been a significant realignment in loyalty among the working class in the rust belt since Trump came on the scene and I’m not sure Pence can effectively carry that torch prospectively.

    1168. Meldrim says:

      Thanks, Sheeple.

      The judge is requiring the submission of “bipartisanly supported maps” because the redistricting process approved in NY by constitutional amendment requires that maps receive bipartisan support, although it could be overcome by a 2/3 vote in each house (which the Democrats obtained). I assume that once the judge ruled that the maps violate the state constitution, he wanted to make sure that the remedy (new maps) did not violate the bipartisanship requirement.

    1169. Phil says:

      No Republican, including DeSantis even can match Trump’s support amongst working class voters – and that includes blacks and Hispanic working class voters – and that means over performance in Pa, Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Iowa.

      I originally supported Rubio in 2016 because I felt he would be the strongest candidate against the Democratic nominee.

      I was wrong. In 2016 Rubio wouldn’t have done nearly as well as Trump in any of those states.

      Rubio lost his allure with many by 2016.

      The Rubio running in 2016 was not the same Rubio that 1st ran for Senator in FL in 2010.

      He got too full of himself once he got to DC, especially after that one Time cover suggesting he was the only one that could save the GOP from doom because it was bleeding support from minorities.

      There were forces that tried to make him into the GOP’s Latin JFK. Didn’t work out so well though after the lard ass from Jersey humiliated him in one debate that Lil’ Marco never recovered from.

    1172. Tina says:

      Any chance for pence ended for me once he refused to act regarding certification. Days. before, he said that they will here all of us on certification day. I believe he gave that speech in Georgia. What did he mean by that? Then he issues that tweet saying his hands were tied, while trump was still speaking on J6.

      Also, he was behind the firing of General Flynn. I question his chief of staff for these events.

      With that said, he is much smarter than our current veep.

    1173. Phil says:

      Low bar, Tina. Very low.

      #1209. You’re wrong again. Trump will not be the nominee in 2024
      Keep a note about this.
      There are many reasons for this,not least age and Trumps declining ability.

      Jeff Dunham’s puppets do the 2016 presidential debate between Trump(Grump) and Biden (Hiden)
      and it START at the 28:53 mark.

      IT IS HILARIOUS!

      1212 What should Pence have done about certification, Tina? Did he choose to not exercise real power to overturn the election? You said he lost you over it so you must believe there was something he could have done to change the outcome.

    1180. Meldrim says:

      The Constitution gives the Vice President the ministerial duty to count the electoral votes that have been certified by the states and accepted by Congress. It is senators and representatives who can challenge certified electoral votes, which is what happened in the case of the electoral slates of several states, and the House and Senate each voted in favor of not excluding the certified electoral votes. Mike Pence could have done nothing differently on January 6, 2021 with respect to the electoral-vote count and still act in accordance with the Constitution.

    1181. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      The massive Russian convoy that was heading to Kyiv is missing:

      “The Pentagon says it does not know if Russia’s convoy of military vehicles, which once stretched some 40 miles outside Kyiv “still exists at this point”.

      “It’s been now so long,” said spokesman John Kirby. “They never really accomplished their mission.”

      The stalled convoy was never re-supplied, he noted, and was making little effort to advance on the capital even before Moscow announced its plans to reposition troops.

      “We don’t think that they properly planned for logistics and sustainment of a force that size in the field under combat conditions,” Kirby said.

      “It’s also a function of Ukrainian resistance and agility and frankly, just battlefield smarts,” he added.”

    1182. Tina says:

      Bl, you need to review his speech before certification. Whether he has or does not have the power is not what I am arguing. In fact, Congress is looking to change that act. So, I am not sure that he did not have power, if they are trying to amend it.

      He lost me because he said one thing in Georgia, and then did something else.

      Plus he was the one who had flynn fired because he was lazy in his response – an incoming NSA HEAD would have conversations with Russian officials/counterparts. Again, his sloppiness to the reporter resulted in Flynn’s firing.

    1183. Tina says:

      If he was the nominee, I would hold my nose and vote for him.

      But I don’t think he will be the nominee.

      Nor do I think Trump will run,but I could be wrong.

      He also is not that strong on America First, maybe, he’s more a hybrid or a mini globalist.

      Won’t be a peep from Republicans. Worthless Party. Completely worthless.

    1186. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      1224. Maripoul has been under Russian attack for several weeks. Amazingly it’s held out, but the city is being reduced to rubble.

      “But Putin’s original goal was to disarm Ukraine by annihilating its military. That is now impractical. Ukraine’s army has fought the Russians to a standstill. Indeed, it has even prosecuted limited offensives. Ukraine is also awash in high-end Western military hardware. It now has one of the best militaries in Europe, an deliciously ironic outcome for Putin.

      Zelensky will obviously not give this up. Indeed, the Ukrainian military and population would reject such a move if Zelensky even tried it.”

    1187. Phil says:

      Where is this awesome Russian military that was supposed to be such a threat to the world? Bogged down completely by super power Ukraine.

      Mighty Putin. The world should tremble.

    1188. jason says:

      Pence was right about certification of the election. He did the right thing.

      He was wrong in failing to call out the fraud, he accepted being victimized. He was too weak to fight the MSM.

      For this reason he will never win the nomination for President.

    1189. jason says:

      Where is this awesome Russian military that was supposed to be such a threat to the world? Bogged down completely by super power Ukraine.”

      It may be bogged down (more or less) but it is in the Ukraine, it is destroying the country, bombing its cities, displacing its residents and destroying its economy and infrastructure. It is also occupying large parts of Ukraine.

      So let’s not lose touch with the fact that this war is a disaster for Ukraine and its people. Devastating. This is true whether the Russians attain their military objectives or not.

    1190. Phil says:

      Yeah, there was a discussion earlier about Pence’s appeal to working class voters in rust belt states. I argued it doesn’t rival the Trump appeal to those states. No Republican candidate does.

      Since Pence wouldn’t come close to the getting the nomination in the first place it’s all academic. Pence is finished. Guy is weak. No, he had no choice but to certify the election, but he has been stone silent about the voting fraud. Weak.

    1191. Phil says:

      Putin’s predicament in Ukraine is disastrous. His military is getting pummeled by the day. He’s occupied parts of the Ukraine but at a huge cost.

      Kind of reminds me of the Mexican colonel in Santa Anna’s army who said right after the costly battle of the Ala
