Trump Leads GOP Field By Double Digits Over DeSantis

    Polls are going to be sparse these days so for the time being, the latest tracking poll of the Republican primary race from Morning Consult shows Republicans still haven’t figured out how much damage Donald Trump has done and still prefer him to be the face of their party for 2024.

    Trump 46%
    DeSantis 33%
    Pence 9%
    Cheney 3%
    Haley 2%
    Cruz 2%
    Abbott 1%
    Pompeo 1%
    T. Scott 1%
    Noem 0%
    Youngkin 0%

    This poll was done January 6-8 among 4470 registered primary voters.

      Yep, I guess the TDS morons are right.

      The Golden Calf would not need Trump voters to win the election, there are so few of them.

      It is obvious that white suburban wine sipping liberals will easily make up for any shortfall.

      Bring on the civil war! It will be great for the GOP!

      Biden on his open borders policies: “We’re trying to make it easier for people to get here – opening up the capacity to get here.”


    7. Bitterlaw says:

      Jason- You have said that you want somebody other than Trump to be the nominee in 2024. Does that make you a TDS moron? I am just trying to keep the scorecard accurate.

    8. Gordon Allen says:

      Good one Bitter. It is hard to figure out where he stands on anything, but Ukraine.
      BTW I see Pete Buttigieg is on top of things again this morning.

      Has NYC’s Cotton-Perdue bill to cut LEGAL immigration by 50% gotten a vote yet?

    10. Bitterlaw says:

      If Democrats could be trusted, the solution would be an increase in legal immigration/work visas coupled with strong border enforcement and deportations. But that won’t happen.

    11. jason says:

      Jason- You have said that you want somebody other than Trump to be the nominee in 2024. Does that make you a TDS moron?”

      No. You can support another candidate without thinking that it helps him/her/it to attack Trump/ use MSM talking points against him or alienate his base and without thinking a GOP civil war will win elections in 2024. If the Golden Calf is going to be the nominee, he will need the Trump base to support him. At the moment, he cannot even garner majority support among Rs even with all the negative onslaught on Trump by so called “conservatives”.

      And btw the reverse is also true, the MSM talking points Tgca uses against the Golden Calf are also detrimental to his chances because the last thing the Golden Calf should want to do is be seen as the anti-Trump. The image he needs is pro-Trump and even better than Trump post Trump, the opposite of what the TDS morons are advocating.

      I like these puffball questions like the one where Neville Allen asked me to list the Trump initiatives I agreed with.

      It could have happened but the immigration deadenders were sitting around bleating ‘WE ARE WINNING” and waiting for “current immigration laws to be enforced” and advocating for 50% cuts in LEGAL immigration while millions of ILLEGALS entered.

      Why should the Dems agree to anything now, they have pretty much all they wanted and they have the immigration deadenders to thank.

      On the same day, surveillance footage showed him at at a Home Depot in Rockland, authorities have learned. He purchased $450 worth of cleaning supplies, including mops, a bucket, and tarps, they said. ”

      Husbands just can’t win. Guy decides to do major house cleaning and what does he get in return: suspicion.

    14. jason says:

      I think of myself. If my wife disappeared I would take the opportunity to spend $500 in cleaning supplies to leave everything spic and span so she would be pleasantly surprised upon her return.

    15. Bitterlaw says:

      Walt cleans the entire house every day. He also spends a lot of time at a pond on his property. Hmmmmmm.

      Pond? Rumor is Walt has lost wives to the Congo, the Ganges, the Volga and the Tigris.

    17. Sheeple,Jr. says:

      This is the strange case of YouGov Polling.
      Over the weekend, YouGov collaborated with CBS News and showed Biden’s approval/disapproval at underwater by 12 pts.
      Today, the Economist/YouGov Poll sows Biden at 50% approval and 47% disapproval or +3.
      The field dates for the poll were similar.

      So You/Gov conducts two polls simultaneously and the results show a 15 pt. spread.

      Can someone explain this to me?

    18. Poul Harris says:

      Woke polling.

      You cannot just report what people respond to the questions.

      You have to account for how they WOULD respond if properly brainwa…, huh, enlightened.

      Maybe Neville Allen can come up with ONE issue where he doesn’t know where I stand?

      But here is the deal. Whatever I say, it won’t be based on a magazine or a video game.

    21. jason says:

      Rs to vote on eliminating the IRS?


      Not that I don’t believe in an across the board consumption tax to replace the current system, I think a flat tax is a great idea, but because it has no chance of passing the senate or being signed by Biden. Sometimes there is value in symbolic votes and it might serve to get the ball rolling on changes that can actually be implemented, but not sure this particular vote does any of that.

      Better to incrementally reduce its power and funding so it cannot hire 87k new employees and have oversight so it cannot abuse its powers.

      Even with a flat tax you would still need an IRS to enforce it and penalize those that circumvented it, although it certainly would be a lot smaller.

    22. NYCmike says:

      “If Democrats could be trusted…”

      -jason believes that Democrats would enforce “new, comprehensive” laws….no more needs to be said about the naivete inherent in that belief.

    23. jason says:

      NYC’s strategy of nothing more is needed, WE ARE WINNING is such a smashing success I don’t know why we are even arguing about it.

    24. Tgca says:

      Indisputable proof Zelenskyy is a corrupt dictator…

      …Sean Penn lavishes praise on him and introduces him at Golden Globes Awards.

      We all know, Penn only embraces and praises dictators and tyrants so now we have proof Zelenskyy is one as well.

    25. jason says:

      “Ongoing exposure to NO2 from gas stoves is linked to reduced cognitive performance,” AOC says as if she even knew what she was talking about and knows anything about science.”

      She owns a gas stove, according to a picture from her kitchen shown online.

      In her case, we now have an explanation.

      I don’t know if Neville Allen has a gas stove, but if he does, one more mystery solved.

    26. jason says:

      The Russians invade Ukraine and kill, torture, exile and rape tens or hundreds of thousands and displace millions and shell and bomb populated areas, hospitals, schools and train stations while destroying the country’s infrastructure and economy.

      But according to Tgca clown, the problem is that Sean Penn introduced Zelensky at an awards ceremony.

      I know it is early, but give Tgca Clown of the Year Award.

      How to solve the border crisis.

      1. Instead of hiring 87,000 new IRS agents, hire 87,000 new border patrol agents and place them on the border.
      2. Establish specific judges and assistants that will hear nothing but immigration cases at the border.
      3. Continue to hold illegal immigrant in Mexico until their case is decided.
      4.If necessary, build 4/5 detention centers at the border.
      5. Revamp the procedures that allow legal immigration to the US if there is a specific job waiting. If an employer needs 50 workers, then they can grant workers visas for 50 workers. The immigrant or employer pays to get them here and back. Keep track of all legal immigrants.
      6. Declare amnesty for all illegal immigrants already here. have come forward and be recognized for a worker’s green card.
      7. Any children born in the US on workers visas would not be considered as US citizens but citizens of their mother’s home country.
      8 All criminals deported.
      9.Enact laws that have stiff penalties for being in the US illegally and enforce them.

      If these 9 ideas were enacted. The additional agents would be enough to properly secure the border. The specific judges would expedite all immigration cases.
      Employers would have the workers they need legally.

      Problems solved.

    28. Gil says:

      There is no way to apprehend all illegal immigrants. The only solution would be to grant amnesty and give them a certain date to register by. Then the newly enacted stiffer laws would be applied to those who did not register.

      Legisaltive session starts today.

      The WV senate suspended rules and passed 20 some bills.

      Gov. Justice to give State of State address tonight at 7?

      We now have another announced R candidate for governor for 2024:

      Mac Warner, current WV SOS.
      (very competent guy, articulate, smart)

      Also having filed and announced previously ar3 WV House of Delegates member Moore Capito (son on U.S. Sen. Shelley Moore Capito)
      Chris Miller (car dealer owner and son of WV Congresswoman Carol Miller. No government experience)

      And three others I never heard of including Teri Bradshaw. NO, NOT THAT Terry Branshaw.)
      for WV U.S. Senate seat, only one In have heard of filing to challenge Joe Manchin is Congressman Alex Mooney.

      Walt is not considering filing.

    30. Cash Cow TM says:


      Nice to see someone offer some solutions to illegal alien problems.

      Some observations:

      #3 Gotta get Mexico to agree to that.
      Trump did. Biden has got the Mexicans to agree to take up to 30,000 immigrants a month back to Mexico (which is only 13% of what we are apprehending coming in each month)
      #5 We already have something like 9 or 11 legal avenues for aliens to legally come to the U.S., including basically the one you propose in #5.
      #6 I personally oppose, but everyone has right to their own opinion.
      #7 I agree, but U.S. courts interpret existing law differently and would not allow that to happen.

      I would also add I favor installing devices to launch illegals apprehended along the southern border back across the Rio Grande. I would give them parachutes to help their reentry into Mexico. Cow is not heartless.

      I would also advocate for taking each illegal we round up and ask them what is their home country and we will put them on a plane right now and as soon as it is full, fly them back there. And tell them the NEXT time we apprehend them coming in illegally, we will put them in prison for 10 years and THEN ship their @$$ back to where they came from. If they refuse to say what country they came from then fly them back over Mexico and parachute them out.


    31. NYCmike says:

      “Problems solved.”

      -Sounds great! LOVE those “fancy new comprehensive” laws, much better than the existing ones.

      Now, have a Democratic administration enforce them.

    32. NYCmike says:

      “Nice to see someone offer some solutions to illegal alien problems.”

      -Same situation in NYC circa 1993. Hundreds, if not thousands, of laws on the books NOT BEING ENFORCED.

      All Rudy did was to instruct, and then back up, the Police Commissioner and the NYPD to enforce all of the laws, aka “Broken Windows Theory” of policing.

      We all know what happened.

      2013 – Democrats took over NYC, and the same situation has arisen.

      We don’t need new laws. We need an administration willing to enforce the laws on the books, and elected representatives willing to back up the administration. We did better from 01/17-01/21, but that was with very little help from Congress and the Republican contingent therein (except for like 20 of them……there’s that number again!).

      Thank you! Thank you!

      Thank you all!

      I don’t know what to say. I’m all emotional and flustered.

      1st, I’d like to thank the Academy for this great honor.

      I’d also like to thank my fellow nominees. It is so humbling to be in consideration with other great clowns, China and Dr. Fow-chee sycophants, supporters of corrupt Ukrainian leaders, ABORTION advocates, Illegal Immigration supporters, woke supporters of NFL and the NBA, TDS morons, those in the good part of Philly, and so many others.

      …and of course, I’d like to thank the Almighty Father above for which nothing would otherwise be possible.

      I’m so so verklempt right now so I hope I did not forget anyone.

      So many here make it possible for me to clown so my apologies if I forgot anyone.

      I will always cherish this acknowledgment and want all my fellow nominees and peers to know I will do my best to live up to your standards and continue clowning.

      Thank you again.

      Goodnight and God Bless you all.

    34. Gordon Allen says:

      We do have to recognize a real Biden accomplishment, which hopefully we can all agree on.
      He did the impossible: he appointed a Cabinet all dumber and more incompetent than he is.
      Buttigieg is an example. There are those who said it couldn’t be done.
      Biden proved them wrong.

    35. Tgca says:


      It’s being reported (2 separate links below) that Biden aides have now found a 2nd batch of classified documents at another location.

      The FBI needs to load up a U-haul truck with armed agents and storm the WH NOW and sift through Dr. Jill’s underwear drawers (pun intended).

    36. NYCmike says:

      When those Republicans in Congress who think like jason does go ahead and put forth a list of current immigration laws/rules/procedures that should be repealed, let me know.

      Of course they haven’t all these years, because the laws make sense, are wanted by the majority of the populace, and would work if the politicians had the desire to enforce them.

      And NO, we don’t need to have goon squads going around busting down doors to enforce each law tomorrow, so please refrain from spouting that b*llsh*t.

      “DeSantis Is Polling Well Against Trump — As Long As No One Else Runs
      By Nathaniel Rakich

      I’m not happy about it, and you’re not happy about it, but it’s time to talk about polls of the 2024 Republican presidential primary. We’re still (probably) more than a year away from the Iowa caucuses, yet pollsters have already asked about the Republican primary at least 96 times since the 2022 midterm elections.

      Yes, it’s still very early to be looking at these polls, and yes, a lot can change in the next 12 months. But we are now in the period where 2024 polls are at least somewhat interesting. As FiveThirtyEight’s Geoffrey Skelley has written, national polls conducted in the calendar year before the election are fairly predictive of who will eventually win the nomination.

      Or they would be … if this cycle’s polls weren’t all over the place. Some, like Morning Consult’s tracking poll, give former President Donald Trump a wide lead. Others, like a December survey from YouGov/The Economist, show Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis far ahead, despite the fact that he has not yet officially launched a campaign.

      But there’s a reason the polls disagree so much: They’re asking about different campaigns. Some surveys are asking about a hypothetical head-to-head race between Trump and DeSantis, while others are asking about a multiway battle royal among several Republicans. In one of these scenarios, DeSantis is the favorite; in the other, it’s Trump.

      When pollsters ask about a two-person race between DeSantis and Trump, DeSantis is usually ahead. A simple average of head-to-head national polls taken since the midterms1 puts DeSantis at 48 percent and Trump at 43 percent”

    43. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      “Under pressure from the White House, Facebook censored “often-true content” that a company executive said in the spring of 2021 “does not contain actionable misinformation” but was “discouraging vaccines.”

      The State Attorney General of Missouri, who is suing the Biden Administration for violating the First Amendment, released the email over the weekend.

      “As you know,” wrote the Facebook executive whose name was redacted, “in addition to removing vaccine misinformation, we have been focused on reducing the virality of content discouraging vaccines that does not contain actionable misinformation.”

      Yossi Gestetner

      Biden Tuesday (a day after the documents story broke): I didn’t know docs were at my office at Penn.

      Biden Thursday: Docs at my home were secured since it was locked next to my Corvette.

      Yes folks. He said it.

      I am sure if Trump had a Corvette all would be forgiven…

    46. Tgca says:

      Watch this video of Biden explaining the classified documents were secured in his lock garage next to his Corvette.

      This is absurd to suggest this is not a problem for him but it’s a problem for Trump.

    47. Chicon says:

      Special Counsel (or Special Council, as Flyboy repeatedly said) appointed.

      Looks like elements within the government (as opposed to the Deep State, which is totes different) are pushing Joe out.

    48. Tgca says:

      What’s even worse is Biden has a Corvette!

      Is that an electric vehicle?

    49. Tgca says:

      I’m hearing Letitia James will be the special counsel investigating Biden and she is in the midst of putting together a bi-partisan team of lawyers to investigate so there’s full transparency to the public.

      So far she has commitments from lawyers Hunter Biden, Hillary Clinton, and Liz Cheney.

    50. Tgca says:

      To be honest, I’ll give Biden the benefit of the doubt here.

      Having classified documents in a garage where you store your Corvette may be very secure because who would break in to a garage to steal documents when they can instead steal a Corvette.

      They get Joe out, thats all they want

      If we could get cancer cells to kill themselves then we wouldn’t have cancer.

      But sometimes from the mouths of idiots you do get a grain of truth.

      NYC knows “current immigration laws” are not going to be enforced. He knows that because they haven’t been enforced in decades BY ANY administration and they won’t be enforced in the future.

      But somehow he thinks ‘WE ARE WINNING!”

    54. NYCmike says:

      “NYC knows “current immigration laws” are not going to be enforced.”

      -Incorrect. I know that ANY immigration laws, current or even the “fancy new comprehensive” ones you want, won’t be enforced, unless there is political power to be gained/held on to.

      Make a list of immigration laws to be repealed. I’m sure at least 200 Republican representatives will support you in that regard (but not campaign on it).

      Make a list of the immigration laws that Democrats will enforce.

      The laws are not the problem. It is the political will of the government.

      Trump did a much better job of it that anyone else. If Republicans in Congress had any backbone, and if both they and Trump could communicate effectively, he could have done more.

      Oh, and walls do work, which is why both Democrats/Republicans fight it so hard. That Ducey idea to use the containers stacked on top of each other was brilliant.

      Lib GA Congressman suggests Biden was framed.

      So let me get this straight.

      Someone got access to classified documents from when Biden was VP and then planted them at his house to frame him?

      So how did they get these documents in the 1st place?

      How did someone get into Biden’s house and plant them?

      Where was the secret service? They just allow people to go to POTUS house to plant documents?

      Rep. Hank Johnson (D-GA) suggested Thursday that someone might have planted caches of classified documents at President Joe Biden’s private residence and former academic office in an effort to frame him.

      Right after Biden said not to worry, his garage was very secure and locked.

      You can’t make this sh-t up.

      “But amid the posturing and rambling from the Democrats, a clear winner has surfaced in the form of Georgia Democrat Hank Johnson. The man who once expressed his concern that the island of Guam would tip over from overpopulation is now throwing you a conspiracy theory to chew on.

      Without evidence, Johnson wants you to believe that the classified documents next to Joe Biden’s locked Corvette garage were “planted.”

      “Alleged classified documents showing up allegedly in the possession of Joseph Biden — there’s so much that needs to be investigated, and that’s what I call for,” Johnson told Fox News’ Hilary Vaughn.

      “But I’m suspicious of the timing of it,” he continued. “I’m also aware of the fact that things can be planted on people. Places and things can be planted. Things can be planted in places and then discovered conveniently.”

      I agree with this.

      Trump stole the documents. Biden’s were found in his garage.

      Not to mention Trump had nuclear codes ready to fire. Biden’s docs are mostly related on how to get Champ’s poop stains out of the rug.

      The IDIOT delivery person leaves the items scattered on the ground in their original packaging with no box or bags to house them outside in front of the garage in 80 degree weather. I found the items like 20 minutes after delivery.

      While Republicans engage in a Congressional clown show, bringing into question their ability to govern — Biden’s polling has been rising:

      Quite a turnaround from Biden’s polling showing his approval below 40%.

      Biden Job Approval

      Among adults (1,500):
      Approve 47%
      Disapprove 45%

      Gallup survey shows slightly more Republicans than Democrats. Independents have spiked.

      “The telephone survey of 10,000 adults revealed that 45% of respondents said they were Republican or leaned in that direction, versus 44% who said that they were Democrats or trended toward that side. Also of note, the number of independents has spiked, with 41% of those polled placing themselves in that camp. Gallup attributes that phenomenon to the Millennial and Gen Z populations who have remained independent, even as they have grown older.”

Dictator wanna-be with war crimes against prisoners, executions without trials, canceling of religious freedoms, taking over all national media, selling US weapons to terrorists and criminals in Europe and Africa, corrupt gubbermint, etc. These are ALL true statements and the things dictators do, not democracies.

      I get he is fighting for the freedom of his country invaded by another dictator. That is admirable…but he still is no friend to democracy.

      Both can be true.

      We have seen this time and again where the US had to choose sides and ally with dictators and criminals whether it be in WW2 with Stalin, South America in the 70s and 80s, or Iraq back in the 80s.

    141. Tgca says:

      Now on to more important things…

      The Biden’s can no longer be trusted on doing their own review of files for potential classified documents. The FBI needs to raid ALL their residences, storage units, related business offices, etc with 30+ armed registered Democrat agents with automatic weapons.

      They need to sift through Dr. Jill’s panty drawers. They need to go through Joe’s Depends boxes too.

    142. Tgca says:

      I would even go as far as requesting the FBI do full body cavity searches at this point. You just never know where Joe and Dr. Jill may have classified documents stashed.

    143. jason says:

      These are ALL true statements and the things dictators do, not democracies.”

      zzzzzz… ALL lies.

      Putin is a dictator who wins kangaroo elections, Zelensky actually won election against the ruling party and an incumbent President. With 73% of the vote no less.

      “Ukraine pulled off the March 31 election with no major hitch. Voting and ballot-counting proceeded smoothly. The Central Election Commission’s vote tallies corresponded with exit poll results and a non-governmental parallel count. The International Election Observer Mission (IEOM) released a preliminary assessment that noted some problems but termed the election competitive, reported that candidates campaigned freely, and said that the electorate had a broad choice.”

    144. jason says:

      Only a Putin toady lapdog like Tgca actually thinks Putin and Zelensky are the same thing.

      The stupidity of that is just astounding.

      Then Tgca whines about being called a clown.

    145. Tgca says:


      You constantly deflect about Zelenskyy.

      We all know Pootin is a lying corrupt dictator but that is not the issue here. The issue brought forth is Zelenskyy as a corrupt dictator wanna-be with his actions the last few years.

      The FACTS I noted above have ALL been widely reported on by numerous news agencies in Europe and the US, including concerns from US politicians, with many of these journalists on the ground in Ukraine who are NOT sympathetic to Russia at all.

      You REFUSE to accept facts just like you REFUSED to accept facts on Dr. Fow-chee when you defended him and called for him receiving medals and proclaiming you were a fan of his. You were completely wrong then and completely wrong now on the character of these men.

      You are our Robbie version defending Jeb when it comes to Zelenskyy. You have bad judgment, as has been demonstrated in the past.

    146. Tgca says:


      What’s clown-like is ignoring independent news reports on Zelenskyy and his corruption.

      Even The NY Times validated its story and video on Russian POW executed by Ukrainian soldiers.

      As for the media, please tell us who controls the media in Ukraine. Which Ukrainian new sites are independent and not going through the gubbermint? Name then please.

      As for the Orthodox Churches banned in Ukraine, its gubbermint is officially drafting a national law to it after effectively already doing it by equivalent of an executive order.

      As for weapons supplied to the Ukranian military showing up in Africa and Europe among terrorists and criminals, please explain how they got there. The president of Nigeria, a US ally, gave a recent speech on this and raised this as an issue to member African states in a conference because it’s destabilizing their regions around Chad.

      I bet Jadon admires Hussein, Marcos, Pinochet and other dictators that his hero Reagan supported.

      He’s now wrong in Zelenskyy!

      Tgca’s hatred for Zelensky is only matched by his love for Putin.

    149. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      The debate about Ukraine on this board goes nowhere; no one is going to change their position.
      It does reflect the divisions within the Republican Party, which are indicated in recent polling:

      A recent CBS/You Gov poll found:

      +Support for aid for Ukraine was supported overall by a margin of 64% to 36%. The 2 to 1 level of public support has remained fairly constant in recent polling;

      +Republicans, however, are about evenly split: 48% in favor and 52% opposed.

      +Those who identify themselves as “MAGA Republicans” opposed aid by a margin of 64% against and 36% in favor.

      A lot of pundits believe the Republican division over Ukraine aid played a role in the disappointing performance of Republican candidates in the Midterms. I tend to agree, and believe it wcould be a major negative factor for the Republicans in the 2024 election. Personally, I will not support a candidate who opposes Ukraine aid.

      Last year, a motion to support Sweden and Finland joining NATO was approved by the House with only 18 votes in opposition. The majority of opponents were also part of the group of 20 that opposed McCarthy for Speaker. So it appears there now is a neo-isolationist group now within the Republican Party:

      “Eighteen House Republicans objected to the measure: Reps. Andy Biggs (Ariz.), Dan Bishop (N.C.), Lauren Boebert (Colo.), Madison Cawthorn (N.C.), Ben Cline (Va.), Michael Cloud (Texas), Warren Davidson (Ohio), Matt Gaetz (Fla.), Bob Good (Va.), Marjorie Taylor Greene (Ga.), Morgan Griffith (Va.), Thomas Massie (Ky.), Tom McClintock (Calif.), Mary Miller (Ill.), Ralph Norman (S.C.), Matt Rosendale (Mont.), Chip Roy (Texas) and Jefferson Van Drew (N.J.).”

      Given these divisions, I am not optimistic regarding the outcome of the 2024 election.

    150. Bitterlaw says:

      SDC – Without continued military aid to Ukraine, Putin will win. It won’t be an issue in 2024 and those who support Putin (and denying aid to Ukraine IS supporting Putin) will pretend to be upset about the result they wanted.

      MTG is dumber than AOC. Discuss.

    151. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      159. I don’t see Ukraine aid being cut-off. Keep in mind McConnell already got a substantial amount of 2023 aid for Ukraine approved in the omnibus bill. If more aid needs to be approved later in 2023, there is a large group of Republicans in the House who will support it. Many House Republicans are angry at the 20 far-right “show-boat” group, and would join the Democrats in approving more Ukraine aid.

    152. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      149. The Ukraine aid issue is not likely to go before Congress again until September at the earliest:

      “For now, concern among Biden administration officials about the possibility of shrinking aid is somewhat tempered by the $45 billion in Ukraine assistance that Congress approved as part of its massive spending bill at the end of last year.

      That number was even higher than President Joe Biden requested — a reflection of Democrats’ concern that additional funding wouldn’t be as forthcoming in a GOP-led House. In some ways, that number was an insurance policy against Republican resistance and the view inside the White House was that that figure would sustain US support for several months.

      Administration officials are doubtful additional Ukraine aid will be passed this fiscal year. They believe the $45 billion will be the last major package of Ukraine aid before the current spending package expires on September 30”

    153. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      “Some 7-Eleven convenience stores around the country, including in Texas and California have started using roaring classical and opera music as a tactic to deter homeless people from camping out in front of their storefronts.”

      The local 7-Eleven in my neighborhood does this, and it works. For some the local homeless do not like Verdi.

      I corrected Jadon’s post.

      Tgca’s hatred for Zelenskydictators is only matched by his love for Putin democracy.

    155. Tgca says:

      Notice Jadon refuses to answer questions on verified stories by numerous media outlets and politicians regarding Zelenskyy.

      Instead he resorts to name-calling, how MO when he can’t defend the indefensible.

      We can both support Ukraine’s effort to defeat Russia and acknowledge Zelenskyy’ corruption and gross violation of basic civil rights and freedoms of people that align with dictatorial behavior.

      Both can be true.

    156. Bitterlaw says:

      I don’t respond to Putin and Russia media talking points.

      Show me proof that Zelensky sold any arms to Africa.

      As far as his curtailing of the subversive Russian church, he is right to do so.

      There is “corruption” in Ukraine? Probably the flimsiest excuse not to oppose Russia’s invasion, war crimes, and expansionism.

      Zelensky is not perfect. But he is an admirable man who has stood up to Russia and great personal risk and led his people in a valiant struggle against daunting odds.

      Any comparison with Putin in an effort to denigrate him and his remarkable achievements is just Russian propaganda.

      Saying Zelensky violates civil rights is a real joke when you look at Putin’s record in Russia.

    160. jason says:

      Tgca somehow wants to pretend that Zelensky is the Ukraine, and that somehow we should fail to support Ukraine in its struggle to survive a Russian invasion because Zelensky is “corrupt”.

      Ukraine has 40 million people, of which millions have been displaced and exiled, tens of thousands killed, raped and tortured. Their cities and towns have been bombed and shelled and gutted. Their economy ruined. Their infrastructure destroyed.

      It is not about Zelensky. It is not about corruption. It is not about the subversive Russian church. It is about Ukraine. Attacking Zelensky using Russian propaganda points is just a diversion from the real issue, that Russian expansionism has to be stopped and the Russians have to be kicked out of Ukraine.

      I personally admire Zelensky and his leadership. But in the end, my support is for Ukraine, not its President.

      Wow. What a coincidence. Last night I was listening to an old Coast to Coast rerun with Art Bell while driving. They had someone on who was an expert on how animals view the world and how sentient they are. People were calling in with stories about paranormal experiences with pets and this one woman said when her cat was dying her dog was wailing and acting like a human would when a family member is ill.

      Those are not Russia talking points. They are valid issues brought up by many media and political sources, including conservatives. I would hardly accuse The Federalist of posting Pootin talking points as one example.

      It’s laughable you say you don’t respond to media talking points when you constantly post anti-Biden talking points here from conservative media as well, whether justified or not.

      You can’t be serious that you believe an authoritarian-acting leader is justified to cancel religion in a country.

      I guess you’d be ok if the Dems would cancel religion in the US because they disagree with them and see them as a threat to ABORTION or Great Britain canceled the practice of Catholicism because of the support of Irish rebels.

      Democratic countries don’t cancel religion under any circumstances!

      The fact that you support that shows you neither support the values of conservatism or democracy.

      It has been verified by numerous news and political sources that military weapons provided to Ukraine are now in the hands of criminals and terrorists in Africa and parts of Europe.

      This was recently addressed at a conference again in Nov by African states, specifically Nigeria, an ally of the US that claims this is destabilizing parts of Africa and they are vocalizing this to Europe and the US.

      Ahh! The Dr. Fow-chee defense all over again from you. Well at least you admit Zelenskyy’s not perfect but you forgot to outline:

      He’s awesome
      you’re a big fan of his
      he should get medals

      like you did for the now disgraced Dr. Fow-chee.

      Zelensky is not perfect. But he is an admirable man who has stood up to Russia and great personal risk and led his people in a valiant struggle against daunting odds.

    166. Tgca says:

      …and again, for the record, no one here is against Zelenskyy standing up and fighting for his country to expel Russia from Ukraine.

      Not one poster here I know has made that claim though you repeat this over and over that criticism of Zelenskyy means you support Pootin.

      That’s like saying criticizing a corrupt police captain means you support defunding the police or supporting criminals.

      It’s dishonest and wrong and we ALL know you constantly say that because you can’t defend valid concerns about Zelenskyy.

      Emergency crews worked through the frigid night at the wrecked multi-story residential building, the site of the worst casualties from a widespread Russian barrage Saturday.

      181. The Institute of War has rebutted the claims being made by Putin’s parrot:

      “Ukrainian officials are not persecuting religious liberty or the Ukrainian Orthodox Church, however. Russian officials are intentionally misrepresenting Ukrainian efforts to prosecute Kremlin-linked elements of the UOC MP as persecution of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church. The Ukrainian Orthodox Church is an independent entity that continues to operate in Ukraine, while the UOC MP is a non-independent subordinate branch of the Kremlin-controlled Russian Orthodox Church, which has fiscally and rhetorically supported Russia’s war in Ukraine”

    177. Tgca says:


      More Zelenskyy propaganda spewed by his sycophant Jadon.

      Because a Russian Orthodox Church, long established in Ukraine is not toeing the line for Zelenskyy, he sicked his corrupt security services and justice system (as previously designated by the US) on them claiming it’s a national security issue.

      Their crime? Some priests have bellowed criticism of Zelenskyy from the pulpit or support Russian separatist regions.

      In one case, they found some written materials in one church supporting Russia.

      Now nearly a thousand Orthodox Church officials have been targeted by the corrupt regime and their churches shut down, directing worshippers to approved churches instead.

      So this is the reason to deny organizations the practice of their religion?

      …and yes, they are denied. Zelenskyy has decreed that worshippers cannot attend services at these churches, as reported by US and European media.

      Jadon thinks thinks this is democratic when we have similar examples in the US of religious leaders speaking out against their gubbermint.

      Democracy doesn’t ban religious services that criticizes it under NO circumstances.

    185. Tgca says:

      Here’s a list of comments from various news sources, mostly lefty ones so I’m not even including conservatives sources that also reported on this concern over violation of religious practices in Ukraine.

      Despite what Zelenskyy lapdog Jadon says, numerous news sources, left and right report otherwise. People are banned from attending certain churches. Their religious leaders are being investigated by a corrupt gubbermint. You don’t think this puts fear in people, knowing that if corrupt gubbermint can go after your church, you’re next if you don’t fall in line.

      Ukraine under Zelenskyy is not operating as a democracy. It’s operating as a dictatorship and the US is standing by it just like it has historically sided with other dictatorships when it suited its needs, and that is fine but let’s call Zelenskyy what he is, an authoritarian leader.

      President Volodymyr Zelensky of Ukraine called for lawmakers to prevent the branch of Orthodox Christianity that answers to Moscow from operating in Ukraine, taking aim at a powerful cultural force that Ukrainian officials accuse of abetting the Russian invasion.

      Actually, that church DOESN’T answer to Moscow. It was affiliated with it in the past and has relations with it like US churches do with world religions.

      Ukraine on Friday banned the activities of religious organizations “affiliated with centers of influence” in Russia and said it would examine the links between the Ukrainian and Russian Orthodox churches.

      Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy signed a decree enacting a National Security and Defense Council decision to impose personal sanctions against representatives of religious organizations associated with Russia, which invaded Ukraine more than nine months ago.

      Zelensky’s attempt to bar Orthodox churches that answer to the Russian Orthodox Church ought to dispel any notion that Americans are supporting Western values of freedom in this war.

      Orthodox Christians are free to worship and attend services, but only in approved Ukrainian Orthodox churches that look to religious leaders in Kyiv rather than Moscow.

      Ukraine’s government moved to curb the activities of the Orthodox Christian denomination historically linked to Moscow, aiming to cut off the most important remaining source of Russian cultural and religious influence in the country.

      The Economist:
      On december 1st, as Russian missiles fell, Ukraine’s president, Volodymyr Zelensky, spoke of war on a different front. His government, he said, will pass a law banning religious organisations with links to centres of power in Russia. He vowed that he would “never allow anyone to build an empire inside the Ukrainian soul”. The bill has not yet been drafted, and it is unclear what Mr Zelensky’s plans will mean in practice. His target, however, is clear: the Ukrainian Orthodox Church (uoc), one of two big Orthodox churches in the country.

      I don’t take stock in the views of the gay fascist pedophile supporter from Caleefawnyuh because he is your typical gay child groomer supporter trying to push a promiscuous lifestyle on others in attempts to normalize how him and his gay friends and neighbors are like everyone else. Maybe in many respects they are like others except for the vast promiscuity that continues to spread HIV and other STDS. LA, San Diego, and San Francisco, like every major US city has a 15% to 20% HIV rate among gay men and with gay men making up 70% of new HIV cases every year. You don’t get those continuous rates without vast promiscuity.

      Remember his lying posts about studies showing how monogamous gay men are but he failed to tell you how gay men define monogamy as MONOGAMISH which means if you allow you’re significant other to cheat or have open relationships or you play together, common practice in his circle, that’s monogamous to them because it’s not officially cheating.

      I have met hundreds of gay couples over the years and I’ve never met one couple yet that are strictly monogamous in the normal sense. Not one gay couple.

      This is also the scum that thinks people should be denied civil rights if they’re not vaccinated for COVID but thinks it’s wrong for people at high risk for transmitting HIV and Gay Monkey Pox to be discriminated against.

      He thinks people have a right to isolate unvaccinated COVID people to reduce their risks of getting COVID from them but REFUSES to have the same standard for people isolating from those with HIV or Monkey Pox.

      The 1st Amendment is the law in Ukraine?

      Btw, was interning Japanese during WWII a violation of the 1st Amendment?

      Nobody banned any religion.

    194. Tgca says:


      So then Jadon is fine with Ukrainian leaders choosing where people can and can’t go to worship because SOME religious leaders criticize those Ukrainian leaders.

      This was Jadon’s similar MO on Dr. Fow-chee.”

      Let’s debunk all that BS right now.

      Hilarious since Tgca was the biggest Fauci propagandist here, who elevated Fauci to Covid God. I correctly always said he was just one member of the task force with a narrow function and that Trump had many other things to consider beside Fauci’s opinion.

      I never supported Fauci’s policies, nobody opposed lockdowns, masking, vaccine mandates, etc. here more than me, but the fact is the only reason Tgca opposed him initially was because he was a Democrat or Hillary supporter, a really stupid and silly partisan position. I supported Fauci’s appointment because I believed he brought credibility and gravitas to the task force, but I never said his views should be adopted, in fact beyond Trump’s initial lockddown (Trump’s, not Fauci’s who had ZERO power to implement policy under Trump) I have been highly critical of lockdowns, school closings, vax mandates, masking requirements, you name it.

      Now the clown pretends he “knew” Fauci was an authoritarian and that he had lied about the origin of Covid, but he didn’t, just one more lie.

      There is NO similarity between my views of Zelensky and Fauci, zero, nada, zilch.

    199. Tgca says:

      Jadon posts his feelings while others post numerous reports from an array of sources including conservative publications.

      Jadon did the same with Dr. Fow-chee until he was proven wrong and then shut up about his adulation for Dr. Fow-chee.

      Jadon has no credibility. If you disagree, his MO is to call you names and lie test you support Pootin.

      Remember Jadon said of Dr. Fow-chee too:

      He deserves medals

      He’s awesome

      So the US would have been justified in shutting down US mosques after 9/11″

      Any mosques that supported terror against the US should indeed be shut down, and in fact several Muslim religious leaders have been jailed in the US, most notably

      “Omar Abdel-Rahman, the Muslim cleric known as “the blind sheikh” who was convicted of conspiracy in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing and of planning a broader “war of urban terrorism” in the United States, died on Saturday in a North Carolina prison, authorities said.”

      Jadon has a ridiculous argument to try and walk back his adulation for Dr. Fow-chee calling him awesome, deserving medals, claiming to be a big fan of his.

      Jadon was the original HHR Dr. Fow-chee groupie!

      Dr. Fow-chee was ALWAYS the face of the task force whether it was intended or not because the media and Congress sought him out above all others. Before COVID, he previously testified to Congress over 200+ times so he was the subject matter expert. No one listened to Pence or cared for what he said.

      It’s like when General Powell or Schwarzkopf gave updates on the war. No one wanted to hear from politicians. They wanted to hear from the experts.

      It’s a ridiculous argument we all see through.

      It’s like saying Jadon elevated Nancy Pelosi to Democratic Goddess when she is only one member of a larger team.

      It’s a silly attempt to walk back your ADULATION for Dr. Fow-chee and we ALL know it.

    204. jason says:

      Tgca’s ONLY reservation about Fauci was that he was a Democrat and Hillary supporter.

    205. jason says:

      Dr. Fow-chee was ALWAYS the face of the task force”

      Zzzz… only because propagandist like you made him that.

      I always said he was just one more member of the task force and Trump should deal with his views on that basis.

      His role was to provide input on how to prevent death. Period. It was Trump’s decision to weigh that against the much broader view of the impact on the economy and other considerations.

      Tgca thought Fauci was the COVID God. So did the MSM. Not a coincidence.

      How come you don’t come out against these child groomers? Why do you protect their rights on HIV and STDs but seek to deny the rights of those refusing the COVID vax?

      …and Jadon has referred to you numerous times as a fascist too after you defended denying basic civil rights to those who refused the COVID vaccination.

    209. Tgca says:


      I didn’t listen to Pence and neither did anyone else because he had no credibility on the matter and could not answer the questions people wanted to know.

      You sound like you’re in LOVE with Dr. Fow-chee.

      Now who’s elevating who?

      Twist yourself in a pretzel trying to weasel out but we ALL know you were HHR’s #1 Dr. Fow-chee fan.

      You mean Trump’s lockdown, Fauci had no power to implement any lockdowns.

      I supported the lockdowns in high covid areas until June only as a way to prevent the hospitals from being overrun.

      At the time there was a big concern about not having enough respirators and Covid field hospitals were being set up in parks.

      And btw, I still believe Fauci acted out of a sense of duty. At 78 and with his money and accolades, he didn’t need to take on an additional role in COVID. Where I was wrong was to assume his duty would be to medicine and science instead of to politics and wokism.

      Still, it was the MSM and idiots like Tgca that made Fauci a Covid God. Under Trump he actually had ZERO policy making power, that did not come until the Biden administration.

      In the end, it was Trump who decided what policies to implement at the Federal level, not Fauci.

      Russians threaten to wipe out London.

      Tgca and his fellow Putin Brigade loyalists to maintain Russia is not a threat to anyone and is just up to more “mischief”.

      “Vladimir Solovyev, a pro-Kremlin presenter on Rossiya 1 state television, said any Western countries which supplied more advanced weapons to Ukraine should be considered legitimate targets for Russia.

      “De-facto, Britain has entered the war,” Solovyev told his flagship Sunday night talk show on state television. “I consider Britain is now a legitimate target for us.”

      His comments were followed by a discussion on state television with lawmaker Andrei Gurulyev about the utility of resuming Russia nuclear testing so that the whole world “shuddered”, and even of wiping out Britain.

      “If there is no London, then we would have victory,” Gurulyev said. “On Britain, I said six months ago that it should be wiped from the face of the earth.”

    230. Tina says:

      There are no logs of guests to the Biden home period. This is a scandal.

      Nothing was locked in the garage of the home that hunter allegedly rented.

    232. Gordon Allen says:

      No one disputes Russia is a grave NUCLEAR threat. Incidentally a great argument for caution, not US belligerence in Ukraine.
      NO ONE credible believes Russia is a conventional threat to the West or NATO, because they aren’t, and never were, even on February 23, 2022, or even to the bulk of Ukraine in terms of conquering or overrunning it. As I said before February 23; why this distinction isn’t made is silly.
      BTW the EU has a population of 450 million, 100 million more than the US, and a GDP at least TEN times Russia’s.
      Why it it a US responsibility to arm/economically support Ukraine in view of the EU’s absolute capability to do so on it’s own, and geographic location.
      Meanwhile, we’re eliminating our entire permanent F-15 force from Kadena AB on Okinawa for lack of resources, while adding 40,000 men to Europe, and reducing our transits through the South China Sea.
      These are not related at all to “liking Putin”, but legitimate national security/foreign policy issues that should be debated.
      Instead the “debate” here is whether Zelensky or Putin are nastier or more autocratic.
      That’s juvenile.
      As for personal nastiness I’d definitely put XI, Kim Jong-um, and the Uranian mullahs in the mix.

    233. jason says:

      So Biden was charging his son Hunter $50,000 in rent (49k+). Hard to believe that is market price. Its a big house worth $2 million but you can probably rent similar ones for $10k-15k a month.

      Sounds like a way to transfer from Hunter in a way to make it look legitimate. Plus, Biden did not even declare it.

      A large amount of federal money is going to cities.
      Public subsidized this and that.
      Big grants of federal money for big and expensive water, sewer, bridge, road projects. public transit projects
      And this money is not well spent.

      Everything costs more in cities.

      Cities are also where the large majority of “voter irregularities” take place.

      Cities are where the large bulk of crime takes place–assaults robberies, murders, rapes, burglaries, car jackings, police shootings, riots, etc.
      Cities are also the place where the biggest failures are of the public-school systems.
      Anonymous cites are also where the larger majority of sexual depravities and proclivities takes place.
      Inn is in the cities where there is the biggest “homelessness problem.”

      You don’t hear of many small towns and rural counties declaring themselves a “sanctuary town” or “sanctuary county”.

      You don’t see protests closing the streets or bridges in small communities. Or people rioting and looting the Dollar General store. Or having gay rights parades or glowbull warming protests.

      In non-city areas, where everyone knows everyone else, 95% of the people would not put up with bizarro activities by the weirdos.

      People in the cities have a lot of anonymity. Hardly anyone knows their neighbors in their many hundreds of people in their high-rise apartment buildings.

      The cities money funnel is a big black hole that is ripe for fraud and corruption on political and many other levels.

      There should be a crackdown on cities.
      Maybe even limit how many people can live there.

      Cow is glad we cows do not live in the cities.

      Discussion welcomed.

    235. jason says:

      Meanwhile, we’re eliminating our entire permanent F-15 force from Kadena AB on Okinawa for lack of resources, while adding 40,000 men to Europe>

      Sometimes from the mouths of morons you get a kernel of truth.

      We are adding 40k men now to counter Russia’s threat. But if we allow Putin to invade any country he wants we will be spending a lot more more money than that, a new Cold War will cost trillions.

      “Why it it a US responsibility to arm/economically support Ukraine in view of the EU’s absolute capability to do so on it’s own, and geographic location”

      Because it is in OUR geopolitical interest to do so. An unstable Europe under Putin’s new Soviet Union plans is not in our economic interest.

      It’s funny that Neville Allen, a certified idiot, thinks Ukraine is too far away a “geographic location” but is concerned about Okinawa, a much farther away “geographic location”.

      The US has geopolitical interests both in Europe and the Far East. It is not one or the other.

      The 60-sme year old guy that Walt and Mrs. Walt have been helping out for years has now been evicted from his 2 bedroom apartment (his 82 year old mom who he lived with passed away about 13 months ago).

      The bad news is he tried to commit sui.cide (prescription pill overdose) the night before his eviction last week.

      He has been in hosp. for more than a week and is ok physically. He weighs well over 300 pounds.

      He will be released from the hosp. soon and has nowhere to go, and an apartment full of furniture and belongings that will be trashed in a month.

      His bank account is overdrawn by 250 some dollars, he owes many hundreds (thousands?) in back rent, is paying for a cell phone AND has a land line phone–and yet he keeps ordering online junk even up to the day of his eviction.

      The good news is that his SS disability check will go from $1200/mo. to now be a little over $1300/mo.

      Yes, there’s a difference.

    248. Tina says:

      Seems like the frantic search for documents by Biden has to do with a subpoena for them in conjunction with the Hunter Biden investigation.

      The $49,000 in rent is very suspicious, The hime is worth now $2 million, but back then about $1.3 million. Hunter would be paying for the home back then in 18/24 months.

      Rent would be $4500 a month in the area. That is 10xs higher than what Hunter was paying.

    249. Tina says:

      Division of labor. Why the insistence on the US carrying the ball in Ukraine?
      BTW,give up this utter nonsense Putin has the military capability to attack and occupy anyone in the EU/ NATO. He can destroy it,and the US with his nuclear power,and be destroyed in return,but he has zero conventional capability to do anything but hang on for dear life to Eastern Ukraine

    260. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      Europe is sending military aid to Ukraine, including tanks:

      “France, Poland and the United Kingdom have pledged to soon send tanks for the Ukrainian military to use in its efforts to protect itself from Russia. Finland is considering following suit.

      Britain plans to send a dozen Challenger 2 tanks and additionally artillery systems as part of efforts to “intensify” support for Ukraine, Downing Street said. Zelensky thanked Prime Minister Rishi Sunak “for the decisions that will not only strengthen us on the battlefield, but also send the right signal to other partners” after the two leaders spoke by phone Saturday”

      We already have shared responsibility for assisting in Ukraine, which is in OUR interest too.

      Zzzzz…. Neville Allen loves Russian propaganda.

      As you can see from this map, Russia still controls thousands of square miles of Ukrainian territory (that it did not control before the invasion) not only in Eastern Ukraine, but Southern Ukraine also.

      Until the Russians are kicked out of ALL these areas, the US needs to keep up aid to Ukraine.

    263. jason says:

      Neville Allen is so stupid he does not see the connection between Russia’s military difficulties in Ukraine and the military aid that makes it possible for that to happen.

      He uses the fact the Russians are having trouble reaching their objectives to bolster his isolationist argument without considering that the military aid being provided is why the Russians are being contained.

      It is like a doctor celebrating the fact chemotherapy is working on a patient by cutting off the chemotherapy.

      It is one of the reasons (there are many) of why I call him the dumbest poster here.

      Douglas Wise, a former Defense Intelligence Agency deputy director, was one of 51 erstwhile intelligence brass who issued the public letter on Oct. 19, 2020 — five days after The Post began a series of reports on the now-first son’s shady overseas business dealings.

      I am not ok with Russian expansionism for the purpose of a Greater Russia or new Soviet Union and I am not ok with Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

      And I am not certainly not ok with surrendering based on Putin’s threat of a wider war.

      Putin needs to be contained in Ukraine and pushed back at least to the pre-invasion borders. Whatever it takes. Period.

    303. JeffP says:

      I am in no way justifying Putins actions. But historically Russia has never seen Ukraine as sovereign and they never will even after Putin is gone. I am more interested in defeating wokism, ESG and the CCP agenda. That is the greater conservative cause.

    304. JeffP says:

      313 that’s fine Jason just informing the uninformed.

    305. jason says:

      When did “conservatism” mean allowing Russia to conquer a sovereign nation?”

      JeffP is no conservative. Unless conservatism now means you support an ex-KGB thug trying to recreate the Soviet Union.

    306. jason says:

      But historically Russia has never seen Ukraine as sovereign and they never will even after Putin is gone”

      Zzzzzz… nobody cares. I hear Mexico doesn’t consider Texas as sovereign.

      Ukraine is a sovereign nation. It is not part of Russia and doesn’t want to be part of Russia, Greater Russia, or the new Soviet Union.

    307. jason says:

      I am in no way justifying Putins actions.”

      Sure you are. You want to appease him and surrender a sovereign nation with immense natural resources and agricultural capacity so he can emerge stronger and threaten other nations.

      You are a Putin toady sycophant lapdog.

      And you have no interest in defeating the CCP either, I bet you would run like a scared little rabbit from any confrontation with them too.

      And you are against wokism and ESG but you support a communist dictator like Putin?

      Spare me the BS and GFY.

    308. jason says:

      But historically Russia has never seen Ukraine as sovereign and they never will even after Putin is gone. ”

      The stupidity of this statement is astounding.

      Now we need to defer to Russia regarding what they consider “sovereign”?

      What else do we need to give the Russians that they don’t consider “sovereign”? Poland? Finland? Alaska? Kazakhstan?

    309. JeffP says:

      Jason you have really bought hard into the propaganda. BTW we no longer live in the world your living in. Its no longer a D vs R and have US sovereignty. It’s Uniparty Woke vs the “Awakening”. Your falling right in line. If the Twitter Files and the WEF agenda among other things doesn’t cause you to question your narrative your hopelessly a pawn.


    310. jason says:

      A Putin toady who talks about Ukraine not being a sovereign nation accuses other of “buying into propaganda”

      Don’t you love it here? This site cannot disappear.

    311. jason says:

      Surrendering to Putin’s dreams of a Greater Russia is the “awakening”?

      Put me back to sleep.

      And btw, nobody has denounced wokism and the far leftist taking over institutions like the government, academia, the corporate world and even the military more than I have. I am on record here as saying elections won’t matter if we don’t change the fact we are pouring hundreds of thousands of brainwashed Marxists into positions of power in society, and THAT is what results in WEF and Twitter Files.

      But sorry, letting Putin invade any country he wants and welcoming a new Cold War and an new Soviet Union and surrendering to a despotic killer like Putin is not my idea of combating wokism.

    312. jason says:

      Hilarious how the Putin Brigade thinks we have to surrender to Putin in order to fight wokism.

      I think this is stupid excuse no. 378 on why it is ok for Putin to invade Ukraine and displace millions and kill, torture, and exile hundreds of thousands.

    313. jason says:

      Russians kicked out…mmm okay. In your lifetime? I doubt it.”

      The moral position to take is to kick the Russians entirely out of Ukraine, including Crimea.

      But I think a realistic goal would be to return to the pre-invasion borders. That is in the realm of possibility with continued strong military and financial support for Ukraine.

      Ukraine does not have to formally surrender these areas, just accept the status quo. Russia gets to keep occupying Crimea and parts of the Donbas illegally.

    314. jason says:

      “Former President Trump holds at 17-point lead over Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) in a hypothetical GOP primary match-up, according to a new poll.

      And NO, this in no way justifies Putin’s actions, but it does make one wonder why people like McConnell have not been more critical of Biden since Putin didn’t do squat when Trump was in office, yet McConnell NEVER contrasts those 2 individuals (Biden and Trump) when it comes to Ukraine policy.

      Some inside the DOD have recently expressed worry about where this endless supply of weapons to Ukraine will leave them.

      Navy Secretary Carlos del Toro recently told reporters that the U.S. would soon be “challenging” to arm both Ukraine and the U.S. Navy. That came after the U.S. Fleet Forces commander expressed frustration with defense contractors missing weapons delivery targets and wanting to help Ukraine but not in a way that would “destroy and put me back into the dark ages.”

He is not a declared candidate for President, so there is no competition for votes/support at this time. Not sure why any of you are looking for Trump and him to be enemies.

    329. jason says:

      Looks like NATO is correctly understanding that the Russians have to be kicked out of Ukraine and that we need to provide Ukraine with more modern weapons to do that.

      “The package will likely include a number of Strykers, an eight-wheeled armored fighting vehicle built by General Dynamics Land Systems, as well as ground-launched Small Diameter Bombs, which have a range of roughly 100 miles, two of the people said. POLITICO first reported last week that the Pentagon was considering sending Strykers in the upcoming tranche of aid. Reuters first reported that Boeing-made Small Diameter Bombs were under discussion.

      Canada will pledge 200 Roschel Armored Personnel Carriers. Sweden will send 12 state-of-the-art Archer 155mm self-propelled howitzers.

      The key issue before this meeting is what next? First, Ukraine stopped the Russian invasion. In its September-October offensive (Putin’s War, Week 28. The Sitzkrieg Goes Blitzkrieg as Ukraine’s Army Moves 50 Kilometers in Two Days), Then Ukraine pushed the Russians out of most of their gains during the invasion and used maneuver to (nearly) bloodlessly force the Russians to abandon Kherson city and the territory on the right bank of the Dnieper River (Putin’s War, Week 37. Kherson Liberated and Winter Comes). Now would be the time to negotiate an end, except Russia has unilaterally annexed four more Ukrainian oblasts. Even the “foreign policy realists” are belatedly coming to the conclusion that there are exactly three ways to end this war.

      Ukraine is forced to accede to Russia’s terms and give up its entire Black Sea coastline, and be reduced to a satrapy of Moscow;
      A truce line is established along the current line of contact, creating another “frozen conflict” and setting the stage for another Russian invasion in the future; or,
      Russia is driven out of Ukraine, possibly even Crimea, and NATO gives Ukraine security guarantees against any future Russian invasion.

      Much of NATO is leaving toward option number three.”

      Good. Option 3 is really the ONLY option that doesn’t give Putin the win.

      “I hope you all can do what I did and pay for everything for this entire family for 30 years,” Hunter described in texts to his daughter. “It’s really hard. But don’t worry, unlike Pop [Joe], I won’t make you give me half your salary.”

      According to former Utah U.S. attorney Brett Tolman, the Biden family’s payment mechanism may reveal the core of an entrenched business enterprise, which could involve legal “predicates” for racketeering charges.”

    333. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      344. What makes supporting Ukraine different from our support of allied forces in other places such as South Vietnam and Afghanistan, is the Ukrainians are aggressively fighting the enemy.

      Yep, what is a lie is the “new and revised” version that the number of troops was not not “enough to successfully occupy all of Ukraine”, which no one here disputed.

      And of course the Russians never intended to “occupy all of Ukraine”, their aim was to install a puppet regime in Kiev which would render full military occupation unnecessary.

I remember there was a lot of checking to make sure no live rounds were still in the the chamber or in the magazines and that the blanks were really blanks. Baldwin should never have fired a gun at somebody without checking the round. A blank will have a crimped end where the bullet would be. If someone hands you a gun and says it is safe go ahead and pull the trigger would you pull the trigger without checking it?

      It’s easy to live in a country that has not experienced the death and destruction of a war for generations and accept the continued escalation of a war several thousand miles away and complain about the price of eggs. The Ukrainian people are wonderful and Liv and Kiev are vibrant beautiful cities. The people of Ukraine are strong. However, there are people suffering at the hand of Putin in unthinkable ways. A long protracted invasion is devastating to the Ukrainian people.

      The evil of Putins aggression on a sovereign nation can never be justified. The sovereignty which Russia and Ukraine agreed to in 1994 with Yeltsin. There are nefarious parties taking advantage of the situation as I have posted recently.The WEF is seeing the opportunity to grow their influence in a Eastern European country through BlackRock.

      The breadbasket of Europe has been in continuous upheaval throughout the ages. The Greeks, Romans and Huns, More recently, from the Middle Ages to the present, the Vikings, Mongols, Lithuanians, Poles, Russians, Ottomans, Swedes, French, Austrians, Germans, Romanians and Czechoslovakians have all marched in, with some staying far longer than others.

      Ukraine was not fully independent until the collapse of the Soviet Union, though there were periods of semi-autonomy, Ukraine has been divided up and stuck back together several times. (the name “Ukraine” means “on the edge” or “borderland”).Through it all, the Ukrainians have remained strong and held on to their distinct culture from Russia.

      My thoughts on a peace settlement are maintaining Ukrainian sovereignty. This is non negotiable. This is In accord with the Budapest Memorandum, when Ukraine agreed to trade away its intercontinental ballistic missiles, warheads and other nuclear infrastructure in exchange for guarantees that the three other treaty signatories — the U.S., the U.K. and Russia — will “respect the independence and sovereignty and the existing borders of Ukraine in 1994.

      The Donbas region that borders Russia has been in conflict and debated for over a decade or so and Putin claims its part of Russian Territory. Some would agree. This might be a negotiable point.

      Another key point of negotiations will be NATO. This is where the Ukrainians have the most leverage for negotiating. Protections from further aggression are mandatory in a treaty.

      A protracted invasion will hurt the Ukrainian people by far the most. Ukraine is not bombing Russian cities or military sites in Russia. The have no Navy or Air Force of significance. It is a war of self preservation. Putin as long as he lives can continue playing the long game. Nationalist Russians will only continue his fight in some form, This could go on for years. At this point Russia can only resort to tactical nukes to bring anything close to Putins desired result. Putin being tried for war crimes is a straw man. Unless the Russian government turned on him.

      Pressure must be put on Putin and Zeleneskyy to meet face to face and begin negotiations. This is what Trump encouraged several years ago.

      I tried to get a conclusion from JeffP’s long post above on Ukraine. To my surprise it is not all garbage, actually some factual and relevant historical information.

      However, it all boiled down to the wrong conclusion, that basically in order to avoid death and destruction Ukraine should surrender.

      “Bring Zelensky and Putin to negotiating table” sounds good but ignores “negotiating” is not in Russia’s interest.

      It ignores that this is not about the Russian separatist areas of the Donbas. Russia has not sacrificed tens of thousands of troops, 10 thousand pieces of heavy equipment and 100 aircraft costing tens of billions, damaged its economy, and become an international pariah to get areas it already controlled.

      This is about annexing Ukraine and controlling its natural resources and agricultural production. It is about a grander expansionist plan to create a Greater Russia/new Soviet Union and increase Russia’s influence and power so it can continue to threaten neighboring nations and get concessions.

      So a negotiated settlement that returns everything to a pre-invasion status, the only settlement that Zelensky could possibly offer (and politically viable for him) is not politically viable for Putin.

      A protracted war is bad for Ukraine? Of course it is. But surrender is worse.

      Part 2….First of all the US, UK and EU have never decided what kind of long term relationship they want to commit to with Ukraine. That still is has not been clarified other than proxy war participation. Okay…so give it another year….bringing Putin to the negotiating table is a win for Ukraine not surrender. Russia was DEFEATED when they could not take Kiev and had to withdrawal from its outskirts. . When it’s all said and done I doubt the borders will remain pre invasion, they rarely do in that part of Europe. A swath of land into Crimea might be worth it in the big picture. A second year of a hot war will make things worse for those in the middle of it. Where their homes and livelihoods are impacted, lost, or always at risk of loss being a war. Not to mention those living under occupation by the enemy. When you are in the middle of such trauma you want it to stop now. The ambition to destroy Russia into complete withdrawal anytime soon is unrealistic I think. The sanctions are not working and Russia has other countries to partner with. You would think Zelenskyy with his Russian background and strong negotiation position would realize that and encourage serious negotiations instead of him and his wife begging for money to funnel through BlackRock with no financial accountability. God help us if this escalated. You know da*n well the US, UK and EU doesn’t want to shed blood over this age lold conflict…that’s why they all dismiss Ukraine joining NATO or the EU.

    425. JeffP says:

      Jason… I am not worried about a civil war in the GOP. The party will come together in the end.

      Which state has higher taxes: Cal. or TX?

      Gov. Newsom says 95% of Texas people pay higher taxes than CA people.

      “Asked to provide a source for the assertion, Newsom’s office cited a 2018 study by the Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy, a liberal-leaning group.”

      “ITEP found that the top 1% of income earners in Texas paid an average of 3.1% in state and local taxes as a share of income. The top 1% in California paid 12.4%.”

      Other studies have found that Californians on average pay more tax than Texans, though Whiten said those statewide averages largely reflect California’s higher taxes on affluent households. California had the nation’s ninth highest tax burden, while Texas ranked 34th in a 2022 survey by WalletHub, a financial services site. It compared property taxes, individual income taxes and sales and excise taxes, as a share of total personal income in the state.”

      Your hero Putin doesn’t want serious negotiations, you idiot. He wants to install a puppet government in Ukraine Plan A, Plan B is to annex as much territory as possible, call for bogus referendums, and keep it as Russia.

      There is no middle ground here. Either Ukraine is successful in expelling the Russians to pre-invasion borders or it loses huge portions of its territory.

      There is no “out” here for Ukraine except to defeat the Russians, or at least defeat them back to the pre-invasion borders.

      #448, yes, grain of salt. And to be clear, DeSantis actually gained from their last poll in December.

    435. Paul says:

      JeffP: I would welcome a peace in Ukraine. But, I don’t see negotiations being productive until Russia has retreated a bit further. Right now, Russia would not accept anything less than to be given large chunks of Donetsk, Luhansk, Zaporizhia and Kherson. A stalemate like that would only be a short delay until Russia invaded again to take Odesa.

      That is why we need to give Ukraine the weapons and funding to force Russia back to Crimea and Donbass. Such a defeat, may force Russia to go back to the way it was before the war. But needs to be a significant defeat for Russia to accept this.

    436. Robbie says:

      Is Nikki Haley hinting she’ll run for president because she thinks she can win in 2024? Or is Nikki Haley hinting she’ll run for president because she knows she’ll syphon votes from DeSantis in a race between him and Trump and hopes Trump will reward her with the VP nomination for doing so? It’s almost certainly the latter.

      I absolutely think Haley’s running in an effort to be Trump’s VP. I think Kristi Noem (who I don’t like at all) is doing the same thing. She already attacked DeSantis (weakly, I might add) over abortion. Both know they can’t win the 2024 race with Trump and probably DeSantis running. But both of them think being Trump’s VP gives them the clearest path to being the nominee in 2028.

      If DeSantis is the nominee in 2024, it’s a good bet Haley and Noem won’t get another chance at the presidential nomination until 2032 because DeSantis is likely to win. That means the two of them have to find a way to be VP in 2024 to keep their names fresh. I suppose there’s a chance DeSantis could pick Haley (it would a very strong ticket), but, if Haley and Noem have to wait until 2032, that all but ends their presidential dreams. If Haley were to run in 2032, it will have been 18 years since she last ran and won a race in 2014.

      I would have thought after the last six years Haley and Noem would have realized being associated with the stench of Trump is not a good thing, but ambition is boundless with these two and they’re willing to bet they’ll be the ones who come in close contact with Trump and don’t get slimed for it.

    437. Paul says:

      The whole party has been slimed. The Dems could run a senile old man and still win in 2024. 🙂

    438. Waingro says:

      ##452, Haley is delusional if she thinks Trump would pick her as VP. The Tucker/protectionist crowd DESPISES her. Kari Lake has a better chance than her, lol.

      Noem, on the other hand, I could see. But she, as you alluded to, is a pathetic paper tiger. I see any effort on her part collapsing in failure.

    439. Robbie says:

      Bill Mitchell

      The knock on Trump with soccer mom’s is that he’s a bully. I’ve heard it 1000 times.

      So if Trump tries to bully DeSantis, he’ll be committing political suicide. Trump will call DeSantis names and DeSantis will just laugh at him and pivot to the issues.

      – My God! Bill Mitchell’s back and he’s not pro-Trump.

    440. Tina says:

      Clearly desantis is trailing trump by large double digits again. The stay in the bunker and use Twitter surrogates is not working.

      I also think that going after trump in Covid is a mistake. Neither he nor desantis advocated for mandates. Yet both lockdown. In fact desantis longer than trump. Both made mistakes here.

      The Twitter surrogates are going full anti vax which will be a death wish in the general.

    441. Robbie says:

      What Tucker and the rest of the populists don’t understand is Trump’s not one of them. He just used them for the sake of convenience during his presidency. If he needs to throw them overboard to win the nomination in 2024 or the general election, he’ll do it in a heartbeat.

      With that said, I think this is Nikki Haley displaying a lot of naivete about where she stands with voters in the party. I think she still believes she’s up and coming candidate from 2010 and 2014, but that era is gone. I think she believes she’s three or four steps ahead of everyone else, but that’s not true.

      I could see Trump choosing her, but the retinue of clowns who are his closet advisors will do everything they can to prevent that. For whatever reason, Trump still listens to Roger Stone and he hates Haley. If she can’t see that, then her political instincts aren’t good at all.

      In the end, I think Haley wants the presidency, but doesn’t want to have to potentially wait until 2032 so she’s willing to help Trump. And like so many of the dopes who surrounded him in the first four years, she probably thinks she’ll finally be the one who can control him. Wrong!

    442. Tina says:

      Hillary Clinton led Obama by double digits nationally the day Obama beat her in the 2008 Iowa caucuses.

      Trump is a clown.

      #460, DeSantis hasn’t gone anywhere near “full anti vax”. In fact, he’s been very smart and measured.

      REPORT: Nearly Half of the Ballots Mailed to California Voters in 2022 Election Are Unaccounted For”

      I thought SDC assured voting in CA was a model for the US.

    458. Chicon says:

      473 – aren’t those people who asked for a ballot and didn’t vote? Doesn’t that number track with the overall percent of registered voters who cast ballots in midterms? Wouldn’t it be more concerning if 100% were returned?

      Maybe I’m missing something – it happened once – so straighten me out….

    459. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      473. The reason they are “unaccounted” for is because the registered voters who receive them did not vote, or voted in person at a designated voting location. The unreturned ballots are now void because they needed to be postmarked on or before election day, or returned in person by election day. The Federalist is now trying to make an issue about “missing ballots”, which is nonsense

    460. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      Apparently Joe Biden, who opposes natural gas, had no problem making money from selling it to China with Hunter Biden.

      “In October 2017, Hunter and his uncle, Joe’s brother Jim Biden, were brokering a multi-million dollar deal to supply gas from Louisiana to China
      Louisiana-based lawyer Robert Fenet was on the US-side of the deal
      Fenet wrote in an email he arranged ‘a call from Joe Biden and Hunter Biden on Monday morning to discuss the purchase of the 5 million tons of gas’
      Joe Biden was named in an email found on Hunter Biden’s laptop discussing a 25 million-ton gas deal with China, can reveal exclusively”

    461. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      So there is no “there there”.

      “I think you’re going to find there’s nothing there. I have no regrets, I’m following what the lawyers have told me they want me to do. That’s exactly what we’re doing, there’s no there there,” Biden said.”

      LOL…the Federalist is making an issue?

      We are to trust the Dems in CA that the ballots were “void”?

      Sounds to me there are millions of unaccounted ballots floating around while some people that got them are still voting in person.

      Not to mention there is no guarantee that the persons receiving these ballots are eligible to vote and that the registered voter is the one returning the ballot.

      If there was even an argument to end this VBM charade, this is it.

    464. jason says:

      I wonder how many congressional seats illegal VBM votes cost Rs in 2022.

      I wouldn’t be surprised if it didn’t cost them all the races decided by 2 points or less, at least half a dozen seats.

      It certainly cost them the NV senate race and the AZ governor’s race.

      I will give my EXPERT opinion on Alec Baldwin being charged for manslaughter.

      I think he is being made an example of simply because he refused to accept ANY responsibility at all for the shooting, blaming everyone else, and he could not keep his mouth shut and kept going out trying to prove to the world he is being made a scapegoat for an accident he had nothing to do with that came across as him minimizing the victim’s death and making himself a victim.

      He should have just kept quiet and not try to make himself the victim.

      I think his attempt at self-victimization did not resonate well with the public or the authorities, and had no charges been brought forth, a public outcry over two sets of justice would have been blasted because another rich, famous person was not held to any accountability.

    468. JeffP says:


      World War II was several times more destructive than World War I because the range and killing power of the weapons changed.

      People should keep in mind that World War III will be more terrible than you can possibly comprehend. It will be the worst thing in human history.

    469. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      480. The registrar of voters in California counties records who has voted. An attempt to vote a second ballot would be detected. Rather than make blanket allegations, can you name a specific instance of voter fraud in California in the last election? Likewise Utah has voting by mail elections — any instance of fraud their?

      Frankly I think it is a better system. A lot of the problems that took place last year happened on the day of voting at walk-in election precincts. People should not have to stand in line for hours to vote because archaic voting machines malfunctioned.

    470. Tgca says:


      Agree with Jeffie on this point even though DeSanctimonius is not ready for the Big Time and greatly exaggerates his accomplishments.

      Half the world either supports Russia or is not interested in Ukraine’s woes so starting WW3 could force many to take sides, even those we would not expect could end up siding with Russia, specifically most of Africa, Asia, and parts of South America.

      There’s need to be a solution to this war that doesn’t drag other countries into a major world conflict.

    471. jason says:

      Sorry, I have ZERO confidence in VBM and the analogy of California and Utah is ridiculous.

      CA is run by far left Marxists, the idea they manage VBM fairly is pure fantasy. Maybe Utah, a R state, can do it, but even then you still cannot ensure the ballots are returned by the registered voter.

      VBM is rife with fraud. In CA, UT, PA you name it.

      Bet on it.

    472. jason says:

      The sniveling little Putin lapdogs want to scurry away like scared rabbits and surrender unilaterally every time Putin threatens nukes.

    473. jason says:

      Surrendering to Putin doesn’t reduce the risk of WWIII.’

      It increases it.

      Containing Russia’s expansionism now reduces the chance of a new Cold War later.

      Only Neville Chamberlain sycophants believe appeasing and empowering Putin will dissuade him from his expansionist agenda.

    474. Tgca says:


      The solution to this war is for the Russians to get out of Ukraine.

      True, but that solution is a goal and not a strategic plan to realistically accomplish the goal.

      It’s like saying the solution is to keep illegal aliens from invading the US but without a strategic plan, illegal aliens will continue invading the US.

      So again, how do we realistically end this war?

    475. jason says:

      Cancer is a good way to describe VBM.

      “While reviewing the total ballots mailed and cast, another number stood out. In a California Secretary of State report listing the Challenged/Rejected Vote by Mail ballot results by code, the Secretary of State reports that 22,184,707 ballots were mailed for the 2022 general election. However, both the official Statement of Vote and the 15-day report of registration (which calculates the total number of registered voters 15 days before the election) state that there were 21,940,274 registered voters as of October 24, 2022. Ballots were mailed approximately two weeks before that, so it looks like 244,000 voters were taken off the rolls between the time ballots were mailed and October 24. Just glancing at the report, the counties with the biggest variations were Los Angeles (77,000), San Bernardino (22,000), Orange (20,000), Alameda (10,000), San Francisco (9,000), Contra Costa, Riverside, Sacramento, and San Diego (8,000 each), Fresno, and Ventura (5,000 each).

      It’s going to be an uphill battle, but reports like this are helpful in efforts to do away with the cancer of mass-mail ballot elections.”

    476. jason says:

      So again, how do we realistically end this war?”

      The US and the EU and NATO cannot blink.

      The cost for Putin continuing the war has to outweigh the benefits.

      So again, how do we end this conflict without starting WW3?

    479. Tgca says:

    480. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      491. So again, how do we realistically end this war?

      By giving the Ukrainians the arms and equipment they need to prevail over the Russians. The focus is on the Ukrainians preserving their country from Russian occupation. The war can end quickly and in a straightforward manner — the Russians withdraw from the areas of Ukraine they have occupied since the beginning of 2022.

    481. Tgca says:


      I doubt that will end the war. It will only indefinitely prolong it.

      At some point, both sides will have to agree to end it.

      Both US and Europeans will tire if this is a prolonged battle. We are already seeing a bit of that. Self-serving European countries especially will sooner or later abandon Ukraine in favor of their energy needs. We have seen them backtrack already.

    482. michael corleone says:


      San Diego citizen – I don’t have to prove fraud that is by design unprovable. VBM is a system in which NO ONE can guaranty that the intended voter that received the ballot actually completed the ballot. If the system works perfectly, all you can confirm is that the intended voter signed the envelope. How the ballot was completed is a mystery that can never be solved. Human nature being what it is, we all know that people cheat when they are not watched. This is why we put proctors in exam rooms.

      This is nuts! The fish in question are not going extinct; they thrive in aquariums:

      “With so much excess water in the system, there is no reason that exports south of the Delta cannot be increased,” read another letter that State Sen. Melissa Hurtado (D-Sanger) and Assembly member Jasmeet Bains (D-Bakersfield) addressed to Newsom.

      But experts say it’s not that simple.

      While the delta provides drinking water for about 27 million Californians and supports the state’s massive agricultural industry, it is also a delicate ecosystem that is home to threatened and endangered species—many of which have been suffering amid warming waters, increasing salinity, dangerously low flows and other ecological stressors. The tiny delta smelt are dangerously close to extinction.

      State and federal water managers said they have been complying with environmental regulations designed to protect those species, including a so-called “first flush” protocol that mandates two weeks of reduced pumping at the onset of the first big winter storms.

      The flush provides the fish with enough time and water to move away from the powerful pumps, which have been known to chew them up.”

      My worldview regarding war was shaped by eating breakfast every morning as a child watching the Today Show with Hugh Downs, Barbara Walters and Joe Garagolia during the height of the Vietnam War. As I got older I studied the concerns Eisenhower and Kennedy had about what some might call the deep State today. Which included an out of control Pentagon, CIA and FBI then as well.

      Fast forward.
      In 2021 I had a former client who was stationed in the main drone strike bunker during Obamas Presidency. He saw thousands killed on camera…live…the majority being innocent people. Obliterated. He was serving his country just as generations in his family had before. After Kabul fell in August 2021 he reached out extremely suicidal and relapsed back into alcoholism. He has three beautiful children and supportive wife by Gods grace he is still alive today. He suffered for what?

      For any of us to trust the Biden administration and our government right now in a war situation is ridiculously stupid. Not to mention with his being compromised by Ukraine and the CCP. In fact if you do you are in alignment with the global elites and the MSM media who are exploiting the situation.

    490. JeffP says:

      How do we realistically end the war?

      That’s the problem no world leader is asking or cares to ask.

      This is a complete distortion of the facts.

      The country “escalating” the war is Russia, they are the invaders.

      There is no way any party aiding Ukraine can “escalate” a damm thing. Even if Ukraine fired missiles at Moscow how would that be different from Russia firing missiles at Kiev.

      Why don’t we just debate how to get the Russians out of Ukraine?

      Now there is a “debate” worth having.

      I do support Biden’s policy (and that of responsible Rs) of aiding Ukraine.

      Both can be true.

      I give credit where its due, and Biden is on the right side of this conflict. I did the same with Obama, who I despised and considered a glorified community rabble rouser, but I supported the fact he didn’t cut and run from Afghanistan like he said he would. Or close Guantanamo. And that he continued to kill terrorists.

      Bonchie offers an excellent synopsis of Haley.

      “Still, Haley needs to provide more justification for a run than the fact that she’s been planning one for the last six years. Who exactly is her constituency? And what does she offer that other, far more popular Trump alternatives like Ron DeSantis don’t? I don’t think she’s answered those questions sufficiently, and that’s really my problem with her as a candidate.

      Haley is as milquetoast as it gets. She’s a focus-grouped politician that has a habit of listening to consultants instead of common sense. Nothing about her feels organic or decisive. That she has a habit of falling into traps set by the mainstream media only exacerbates her issues. Her flaws were perfectly illustrated in a now infamous interview with Politico’s Tim Alberta in which she was baited into multiple attacks against other Republicans that ultimately came back to bite her”

      Haley is a panderer extraordinaire. Not fit for higher office.

      The only way for Ukraine to win is to make the cost of continuing the war too high for Putin or his replacement. It is how the US won independence. It is how the mujaheddin drove the Russians out of Afghanistan. As for Vietnam, the US won most of the battles but lost the American public support to continue the war. By most accounts, the Tet Offensive was a military disaster the Viet Cong and North Vietnam. However, they captured Walter Concrite and the US media and that turned the tide.

      Of course it is an unlikely hypothetical but if Mexico invaded the US and captured most of Texas, Arizona and Nevada, JeffP would probably say the US should accept the reality on the ground since those areas were historically Mexican.

      Hello? The Russians are occupying tens of thousands of square miles of Ukraine they didn’t occupy before the invasion.

      They have destroyed Ukraine’s infrastructure in many areas, ports, bridges, utilities, roads, etc.

      They have displaced at least 10 million people, a humanitarian disaster of gigantic proportions.

      They have lost tens of thousands of soldiers and civilians. Civilians have been tortured, raped and exiled by the tens of thousands. Their homes have been destroyed and their cities pillaged.

      The Ukrainian economy is slowly being strangled and destroyed.

      Ukraine is not winning. It is surviving, and surviving no thanks to the Putin cheerleaders here who want them to surrender.

      Helping them survive and win back their land is not “escalating” a damm thing.

      I’m sure a number of my past Vietnamese friends I had in San Francisco and San Jose who emigrated to the US from harsh conditions in Vietnam might surprise you with their views on the Vietnam War, including two I dated, one who became a successful Silicon Valley engineer and another from LA who went to Berkeley and got radicalized and was gleeful of those that died on 9/11 who thinks the US invaded and destroyed Vietnam. Needless to say, I ended the friendship with the latter after he sent a mass email ridiculing the greedy CAPITALISTS that died in the Twin Towers, including the fiancé of his friends brother.

      One of my closest SF buddies in the 90s was Vietnamese too and he loved the US but had strong feelings about the Vietnam War and how it impacted his family, including US involvement.

      Perhaps you should go to San Jose and spend some time among the Vietnamese culture since they have the largest Vietnamese community in the US, over 100,000 in a city of just shy of 1 million people. Perhaps I can show you around there since time and you can get a TRUE view of the diversity of that community.

      Too often we hear these spurious claims without naming names.

      History has also shown us many woman lie or greatly exaggerate claims of sexual assault. I know girls who did this to get back at men.

      If you want to be taken seriously or have credibility, name your rapist instead of doing a book or interview on it.

      So until she names the person, I think she’s full of chit trying to capitalize off a serious issue. I don’t believe any famous person that makes such claims without naming names.

      The article makes a good point that all too often Hollywood women are eager to name those making inappropriate comments to them 25 years ago but when it comes to REAL threats, like rape, they remain silent.

      There are large Vietnamese communities in Orange County and San Diego. I know a lot of Vietnamese, and they are fiercely anti-conmmunist:

      “Of the political forces that have shaped Little Saigon, none has been as omnipresent, virulent, contested, and empowering as anti-communism. In fact, anti-communism has dominated the politics of the community. Its origins can be traced to the most recent Vietnamese civil war ending with the 1975 fall of Saigon.”

      As a someone once said, if you want to know how anti-conmunist Vietnamese are, try hanging a North Vietnamese flag in Garden Grove and see how long it last.

      Tucker Carlson claims nicotine “frees your mind”.

      “Boy do they hate tobacco, and it’s not because it causes cancer,” Carlson said. “They don’t care about your health…They hate nicotine. They love THC. They are promoting weed to your children, but they’re not letting you use tobacco or even non-tobacco nicotine delivery devices, which don’t cause cancer. Why do they hate nicotine? Because nicotine frees your mind, and THC makes you compliant and passive. That’s why.”

      Being anti-communist and being involved in a poorly executed war are not the same thing. That seemed to be the conclusion by one poster here who NEVER admits the US makes critical mistakes and is wrong in its war-mongering adventures at times.

      Like it or not, the US failed in its goals and obligations in Vietnam and abandoned its mission and the people of Vietnam by cutting and running when political pressure was forced upon it, not to forget how it also let down its veterans of that war.

      It’s tragic what happened in Asia during the 20 year conflict in that region but we’ll never know if the US interference made it better or worse.

    561. Phil says:

      It’s pretty evident that Joe Biden has outlived his usefulness to the left. CNN, NBC, NYT have obviously been given the go ahead to go with the Biden documents story. New findings continue to “leak”. It’s obvious the left believes they have gotten all they are going to get out of ol Joe and that they believe he is a liability to the cause going forward. It’s all about the cause to the left. Always has been. Biden is being shown the door. Apparently he and Jill just don’t get it as they stubbornly hang on. The “leaks” will continue until he withdraws into the sunset. The same media apparatus that was used to put him in the WH and once there to protect him is being used to now rub him out. Marching orders are clearly out.

      It’s why I don’t bother to look at head to head polls Biden vs anyone. He ain’t going to be on the GE ballot folks. It will be interesting to see how long it takes Biden to finally get the message and publicly bow out for 2024. Until that happens the liberal media will continue to report the stories and if necessary, start publicizing Joe – Hunter corruption coverage. Give it up, Joe. The decision has been made. You’re out, buddy.

      Now, what will be interesting is what the left plans to do about their little Kamala Harris problem. Do they feel she’s still electorally salvageable? Hmm. If not, shortly you’ll see less than glowing stories about her coming out in the NYT, Washington Post, CNN etc once Joe “announces his retirement”.

      This is all so predictable.

      With the latest discovery, there is no real question that the Biden documents were grossly mishandled. There only remains who was responsible. However, the discovery of documents at yet another location used by the President is crushing for his defense team.

    564. Tina says:

      Rep. James Comer: This isn’t the most complex investigation on the planet. Investigating the Biden family is kind of like tracking a bleeding bear in a snowstorm. There’s evidence everywhere that would point out that this family has been involved in influence peddling schemes for decades. And this is very concerning. And I think that the American people are getting a taste of this with the fact that these documents were stored in so many different locations. Does anyone beleive that those classified documents when they left the Vice President’s office that they just took them to multiple locations all over the east coast?… This is very concerning… Look we know a lot more about the diamond than I need to talk about right now. That diamond was given to Hunter about the time these documents were being transported to different locations. It’s very concerning.

      DeSanctimonius is getting labeled a RACIST for pushing laws to not only ban CRT in public schools but looking to penalize private enterprises from conducting their diversity inclusion programs he does not like.

      This on top of his RACIST comment “not to monkey this up” during his gubbernor race against Gillum MAY end up defining him among large groups just as some past southern politicians were branded as bigots.

      Look for both his opponents from the right attacking him as going too far and the left branding him a RACIST.

      I saw a bunch of media headlines labeling him a RACIST the last few days so it’s going to end up sticking me thinks whether fair or not and that may not play well with Indys and TDS Republicans, especially the wine sipping suburban women who see him morphing into Trump in their eyes.

      I think DeSanctimonius should follow VA gubbernor Youngkin’ approach on CRT. He’s much less combative in addressing these issues but still effective.

      Let’s face it! No matter what the GOP does, there’s going to be charges of racism but they’re less likely to stick with certain politicians. DeSanctimonius is a mini-Trump personality wise who is very thinned-skin and does NOT take criticism well and is very combative.

      In addition, I don’t see how DeSanctimonius can start telling private companies what they can and cannot include in their diversity programs if they’re not receiving state public funds. Schools are different because they’re taxpayer funded.

      I think it’s wrong for companies to push wokeism but my view is if your company is doing it and it’s not taxpayer funded or a monopoly, then go elsewhere. Why would you want to be part of such a company?

      Lastly, like it or not, Floreedah is not as open to diversity as other states. I can tell you even in south Floreedah, many of the whites here are not fond of blacks. Most of my gay neighbors are bigots but refuse to admit it. I’ve been in town meetings where gay liberals are literally raising concerns about AA males loitering or passing through their neighborhoods when they know they don’t belong there. I recall the police chief saying in a quarterly town meeting if you see someone in your neighborhood that you don’t think belongs there, call us and we will send a squad car by….and this is in Broward!

      I had one white NY transplant gay liberal tell me once that AA know their place in Floreedah and they can’t get away with the chit AA get away with up in NY and NJ.

      Going further west or north in Floreedah, you’ll find more of this attitude among white Floridians.

      There’s a comical saying that the further north you go in Floreedah, the more Deep South you get.

      So the question is, whether consciously or not DeSanctimonius is playing to those types because if so, it will not translate well outside the south if he wants to run for POTUS.

    573. Gordon Allen says:

      The Florida Legislature passed these laws TGCA.
      It is the duty of the Governor to execute the laws of Florida.

    574. Tgca says:


      Yes, the Floreedah legislation took up this law at his urging and he signed it.

      He’s pushing it, not unknown legislators.

      Denying that is like denying Lyndon Johnson had nothing to do with the liberal programs pushed in the 60s.

    575. Tgca says:

      Here’s recent reporting on what DeSantis is pushing in Floreedah state universities.

      This is very concerning in my view without some balance. Is he also asking similarly about resources used in religious rights, pro-life, anti-gay initiatives as well throughout the state gubbermint?

      Why just target schools on leftist ideology when we know in Floreedah there’s a lot of right wing indoctrination as well in certain communities.

      In my view, forcing group think either on the right or left is wrong, especially in education. Look for a way to find balance and let people come to their own conclusions instead of seeking to ban a particular view because then DeSanctimonius is pushing the same bullying indoctrination that the radical left does.

      …his administration is asking state colleges and universities for information about resources they are putting into activities related to diversity, equity and inclusion, and critical race theory.

    576. jason says:

      In reality, I don’t think Trump or Biden have anything that “compromises national security”, most likely they are things that they wanted as keepsakes or to write memoirs or books. Even if they might have been important at one time, I doubt their disclosure now would imperil anything or anybody.

      However, the MSM and the Dems boxed themselves in a corner. Had they treated Trump equitably, by demanding the documents publicly and then fighting it out in court to get them back, the Biden docs would blow over without consequence. By going the dog and pony show and throwing the book at Trump, now they can’t give Biden cover, at least not credibly.

    577. jason says:

      In my view, forcing group think either on the right or left is wrong, especially in education.”

    580. Tgca says:


      My point is not that the left doesn’t do it, we know they do.

      The point is the MSM will not call out the left for it but will do so 24/7 when DeSanctimonius digs himself into a hole on this and it becomes a distraction as he will have to defend himself over his policies.

      He will be branded a RACIST and it will stick with many, including Indys and wine-drinking suburban women like those in Radnor.

      It’s one thing to fight wokeism with words and policies but now pushing laws that will require conservative group think and reporting on resources will backfire me thinks.

      …and for the record, there is lots of conservative anti-gay, pro-life, group think on the right in education and schooling as well. It’s just not at the same volume or gets the same attention because those schools are in conservative areas where no one complains about it.

      Of course, JeffP won’t regard THIS as “escalation”. Only defending Ukraine is “escalation”.

      KYIV, Ukraine (AP) — The speaker of the lower house of Russia’s parliament warned Sunday that countries supplying Ukraine with more powerful weapons risked their own destruction, a message that followed new pledges of armored vehicles, air defense systems and other equipment but not the battle tanks Kyiv requested.

      “Supplies of offensive weapons to the Kyiv regime would lead to a global catastrophe,” he said. “If Washington and NATO supply weapons that would be used for striking peaceful cities and making attempts to seize our territory as they threaten to do, it would trigger a retaliation with more powerful weapons”

      I guess the cities the Russians are striking in Ukraine are not “peaceful”.

    585. jason says:

      Perhaps DeSanctimonius can coin the phrase for his campaign:



      We all know what he meant in 2018 when he said let’s not monkey around. Let’s not be STOOPID that someone with his education and experience in a state for decades accused of being plagued with racial diversity issues would not realize you NEVER say such things in reference to an AA.

      I didn’t believe him about it in 2018 and I don’t believe it today. I think it was a joke but I don’t believe it was an innocent slip of the tongue.

    587. Tgca says:

      By the way, I grew up where we often made fun of each others’ races and ethnicity and I myself told off-colored jokes about race, ethnicity, and sexuality to my friends and acquaintances up through my 30s. It was fun banter and I got as good as I gave.

      However, what you say among friends is different than what you say in professional life. I avoided all such bantering at work. NEVER did I bring it up even when others did.

      In fact, I had to address such an issue with a minority employee in San Francisco once who sent out an email to about 20 people on my team that included racist jokes. I knew he did not mean it maliciously but I addressed it with him and his supervisor immediately and he apologized within an hour to the team and that was that and it never got to HR.

      We live in a very different world now so care should be taken when trying to be funny in a professional environment.

      Disgusting that political correctness run amok allowed these gay predators to adopt kids that they abused in an unspeakable manner and rented them out to others, especially since one of them had previously been investigated as having intimate relations with a 14 year-old boy.

      Sorry if it bugs the gay community but there should be a higher threshold of scrutiny for gay men adopting boys because of the history of gay men’s fascination with adolescent boys for decades as acceptable gay culture and their liberalization on intimacy by a large segment of them (it’s just se…!), including grooming and involving themselves in the indoctrination of intimacy among teens.

    590. Tgca says:

      I would not trust most gay men alone with boys under 18. Sorry! I’ve seen and heard too many stories over the years from people I know who had their 1st experience before adulthood with adult gay men, including trusted family friends. Not to mention the acceptance of NAM- BLA as a facet of the gay community by many gays instead of them being ostracized as predators. I recall seeing books and pamphlets produced by NAM- BLA in select general bookstores too.

      Even if gay men don’t abuse boys, there is often inappropriate discussion and inquiry into their intimacy, including grooming them.

      SDC to defend gay men saying these things only happen in San Francisco and NYC and most gay men are just like straights when it comes to exploitation of the underaged in 3, 2, 1

    591. Tgca says:

      Most child predators are those you do not expect and often surround themselves with kids.

      I found out about a gay acquaintance who was on a predator list for having relations with a minor years ago.

      But Poland could go it alone and still satisfy Ukraine’s request for a whole brigade with at least 100 Leopard 2 tanks. That’s because, at the moment, Poland is one of the world’s top buyers of new tanks.”

      Finland also plans to send Ukraine Leopard 2 tanks.

      I would love to see Putin crushed and humiliated. McCall said ONE today. They pulled the same crap with the fighter jets.

The EU has major energy and heating issues this winter, there is zero interest in shedding blood despite the hype. If this war ended tomorrow you wouldn’t hear about Ukraine again in about three news cycles.

      624 Its not me that wants to deny it…it’s the NATO countries. They are lukewarm in difference making support. A few Patriot batteries and a six tanks won’t make a dent to crush the 300,000 new troops coming. The intelligence gained for the US from the Russian military is worth the token weapons. They will need soldiers on the ground too.

      Italian Defense minister ANSA) – ROME, JAN 20 – Defence Minister Guido Crosetto said Friday at a meeting of countries supporting Ukraine that Russian ground attacks would increase exponentially in the coming weeks to match the hail of missiles that has been raining down on the country for weeks.
      “Every day is important to resolve the ongoing crisis,” he said at Ramstein in Germany, at a meeting of the Contact Group for Ukraine’s Defence.
      “We expect over the coming weeks a harshening of the war with an exponential rise of ground attacks which will join the missile attacks made by Russia in the most recent period”.
      Crosetto noted that Moscow had recently trained over 300,000 new recruits. (ANSA).

    613. Paul says:

      Jeffp: We’ve all been very clear on how to end the war. We give Ukraine the tools to get the Russians out of their land. I don’t see any other option that actually ends the war. We could force Ukraine to give up all of the land between Kherson and Donbass. That would just give Russia time for their next phase to take Odessa.

      It’s like halfway through the Revolutionary War, forcing the colonialists to negotiate a peace with Britain.

    614. Paul says:

      Jeffp said: “Last I heard a cease fire and war treaty can include a withdrawal of enemy troops and the return of most occupied land. In fact, it usually always does.”

      What Putinist garbage are you spewing? Did Russia leave Donbass or Crimea when things settled down there after 2014? Would Russia leave the areas (Kherson, Zaporozhye, Donetsk and Luhansk Oblasts) that they have officially made into part of Russia through their sham elections?

    615. Tgca says:


      So what happens if all the tools are not enough?

      Sooner or later one of 4 things need to happen to end the war:

      1. Ukraine defeats Russia with supplied military arsenal which is highly unlikely.
      2. Russia defeats Ukraine
      3. Russia decides to give up this war
      4. Military intervention from the US and NATO against Russia which includes boots on the ground which is highly unlikely since Europeans and Americans have absolutely no appetite for a full scale war against Russia to save Ukraine.

      There are no other realistic options!

      We could support Ukraine for the next 50 years with military equipment and chances are they still would not defeat Russia on their own.

    616. Paul says:

      The first one is very likely if they are given the equipment. And I would define defeat as Russia withdrawing forces back to Crimea and Donbass. Further retreat would be better. However, that big of a blow to Russia might get them to the bargaining table for a reasonable treaty.

    617. Paul says:

      A stalement where Russia is bogged down for years and doesn’t ever achieve it’s goals is also what I would consider a win.

    618. Tgca says:


      Highly unlikely Ukraine will defeat Russia on its own no matter how many weapons they are given. That’s a pipe dream!

      Only Russia or the US/NATO can end this war. Ukraine can’t!

    619. Tgca says:


      That falls under category 3 in my 634 post.

    620. Paul says:

      If things are stuck where they are, I don’t see Russia withdrawing. They would just stay and it would be a slightly quieter long-term lobbing of bombs back and forth. Basically, ike they did in Donbass after 2014.

      Laid-Off Americans, Replaced with Foreign H-1B Visa Workers, Score $4.65M Settlement Against Indian Outsourcing Firm

      Congress should change or drastically reduce the H-1B visa program. It used to be you had to prove there were no local qualified American applicants before foreign work visas could be approved, as other countries still do.

      Now it’s an anti-American process targeting mainly Caucasian American employees in favor of cheaper less qualified Indian and southeast Asian labor.

      It’s disgraceful! Every US politician should be against this.

      I have seen the quality of IT organizations suffer from this over the years in attempts for short-term gains to the bottom line.

According to Pistorius, the package will include 40 Marder infantry fighting vehicles, seven Gepard anti-aircraft self-propelled artillery systems, additional guided missiles for the Iris-T anti-aircraft missile system, and another Iris-T unit.”

      The Ukrainians already have one Iris-T unit, will get 3 more. The one they have has been highly effective and has shot down several Russian aircraft.

    632. Chicon says:

      Jason, let’s assume that the recent additions of Western aid and weapons systems to Ukraine gets the Russians back to the pre-invasion borders. If Ukraine decides to continue the war in order to attempt to retake Crimea, do you think the West should continue to supply them?

    633. jason says:

      Hi Chicon

      Should that happen, then I would only support the supply of defensive weapons.

      I am on record as supporting a cease fire that returns the situation to pre-invasion borders.

      I think Ukraine should continue to claim its entire sovereign territory but I doubt there will be public support in Ukraine for a war in Crimea.

    634. jason says:

      So much for JeffP’s claim that NATO countries are “luke warm” towards Ukraine.

      Estonia understands the risk of Russian expansion.

      “We are giving all of our 155mm howitzers to Ukraine and we want to set a precedent in this way so that other countries don’t have excuses why they can’t give Ukraine the weapons to win the war,” Estonian Ambassador to Ukraine Kaimo Kuusk said.

      Dozens of FH-70 155mm and D-30 122mm howitzers are to be sent to Ukraine.

      The biggest ever Estonian military aid package for Ukraine, worth EUR 133 million ($145 million) or over 1% country’s GDP, also includes thousands of artillery shells for howitzers, hundreds of Carl-Gustaf M2 anti-tank grenade launchers with ammunition, and auxiliary equipment for artillery units.

      “In addition, Estonia continues to provide both basic and specialized military training for Ukrainian soldiers,”

      133 million is a lot of money for a country of 1.4 million people.

    652. jason says:

      Another “escalation”? JeffP and fellow Putin appeaser lapdog sycophants hardest hit.

      “The U.S. is gearing up to announce a major new weapons package for Ukraine on Friday, as top military leaders from around the world gather in Germany to discuss how to help Kyiv in its fight against Russia, according to three U.S. officials and another person familiar with the discussions.

      The package will likely include a number of Strykers, an eight-wheeled armored fighting vehicle built by General Dynamics Land Systems, as well as ground-launched Small Diameter Bombs, which have a range of roughly 100 miles, two of the people said. POLITICO first reported last week that the Pentagon was considering sending Strykers in the upcoming tranche of aid. Reuters first reported that Boeing-made Small Diameter Bombs were under discussion.

      Pressed by Kyiv to send heavier weapons in recent weeks, Western nations have dramatically increased their pledges of new armor, aimed at helping Ukraine build new armored units for hard fighting this spring and summer. Late last year, the U.S. and the Netherlands agreed to spend $90 million to upgrade around 90 Soviet-era T-72 tanks operated by the Czech Republic for shipment to Ukraine. Germany has also pledged its Marder infantry fighting vehicle and France its AMX-10 RC, a wheeled system built around a turret-mounted 105mm gun. Canada will also provide 200 Canadian-made personnel carriers, Defense Minister Anita Anand announced on Wednesday while visiting Kyiv.

      This month, the U.S. announced it would send 50 Bradley Fighting Vehicles, a tracked armored vehicle that carries an autocannon, a machine gun and TOW missiles. The administration has already provided thousands of combat vehicles, including Humvees and mine-resistant vehicles used to move troops on the battlefield.”

    659. JeffP says:


      Russia is obviously the escalating nation that began the war. That will continue. The US and EU knew this invasion was coming eventually. They did very little to help the Ukraine beforehand because of their corruption and ties & history with Russia. The 1994 agreement with Yeltsin was worthless and everyone knew it. On TV Zelenskyy had a comedy bit in about calling Merkel regarding NATO and her hanging up on him.

      1. Best case- Russia is soundly defeated and return of original borders or Putin is removed or dies and a non nationalist Russian comes into power. No one really believes this is going to happen.

      2. Worst case- Putin uses tactical nukes and it leads to NATO military involvement and major city centers in Moscow, St Petersburg, the EU and UK get bombed or nuked. WW 3 begins.

      3. Realistic case- provide an off ramp where both countries can mutually exist. My proposal is NATO protections for Ukraine, keep Odessa and Russia keeps land bridge into Crimea and the Black Sea.

      A half ass involved EU will not lead to best case.

    660. JeffP says:

      From earlier today.

      “However, Germany is still stalling on sending tanks from its own reserves. Despite acknowledging how important these weapons are, German Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock dodged the question by reporters in Brussels.”

      Jeffie is correct in that this will all be about economics in the end. If Europeans feel cash strapped and energy resource depleted, Ukraine is history. Same in the US.

      I also agree with Neville Allen that Americans are paying little attention too to Ukraine. Most do not even know what’s going on there on a daily basis. They just know Russia invaded, which is wrong and we’re supporting Ukraine.

      Very few stories daily are resonating with Americans where people talk about Ukraine in the US, or as KJP would say, it’s just not TOP OF MINDwith the vast majority of Americans.

      That’s not to say it should not be important enough for Europeans and Americans but right now it just isn’t.

      Looking at trending on Twitter, Facebook, and Google, Ukraine is nowhere near the top. You’ll find more about celebrities, movies, and sports trending than Ukraine. In fact, Ukraine had its highest trending back in Feb and Mar 2022 from what I could find. That’s a year ago.

      So in the end, Americans are losing interest and at some point will cut and run just like we did in Afghanistan even though deserting Afghanistan is a much bigger security risk to the US than a regional war between Russia and Ukraine at this time.

      Trump yesterday endorsed Ronnas choice for RNC vice chair. He just took a side. Wow.

    671. JeffP says:

      If it’s a binary choice DeSantis will win.

      Trump 2016 attack tactics won’t work in 2024 with DeSantis or Haley. They both are great communicators and know the issues. Even Pence another former Governor might do better than you think. I cannot even imagine a debate with Trump in the middle of Pence and DeSantis on one side and Haley, Pompeo and Bolton on the other. That would be extremely interesting having three former cabinet members, the former VP and most popular governor all against Trump. Has that happened before? Don’t think so.

      I saw that poll yesterday and it said it was a straw poll with the focus of younger pro-life activist voters from an activist group. It does not represent the majority of voters as done in traditional polling.

      Jason, thanks for the response above about Ukraine. I agree about ending at Crimea, although I’d be tempted to want to continue since the taking of Crimea was just as brazen and unlawful as the current invasion.

      DeSanctimonius will be questioned on his exaggerations on COVID and cross examined with his own record showing he embraced the CDC and Dr. Fow-chee closures throughout 2020, and other GOPers like Noem will pile up and go after him because they see him as the man to bring down 1st and know he ranks lower than many other Gubbernors in popularity of his programs.

      Rinse the DeSanctimonius chit out of your mouth and gargle with some reality dude!

      Go watch a DeSanctimonius SCRIPTED press conferences!

      He is a blowhard, thin-skinned, defensive person like Christie, Trump and Biden that likes to argue and ridicule people like when he ridiculed high school kids publicly on TV for wearing masks yet he is the fool that couldn’t even put his mask on straight and had it dangling like a diaper from his face during a press conference.

      Irony meter explodes as Tgca refers to “real food.”

    682. Tgca says:

      DeSanctimonius is not even in the Top 10 ranked gubbernors in the US with approval ratings and won by a lesser margin than other popular Gubbernors who did as well or better than him on a number of issues. As of this year, about 9 GOP Gubbernors as well as a few Fem gubbernors out perform him in approval ratings, some significantly by 15+ points.

      He ran against a very weak unlikeable candidate who most Dems didn’t like or trust and beat him by basically the same margin that Rubio beat his opponent.

      The only reason he is a current GOP front runner is because the MSM and the gubbernors of CA and NY, as well as the NYC Mayor made him a household name by attacking his woke measures that he constantly parades on TV with friendly scripted events.

      Had it not been for that, most Americans would not know who he was.

      …and for the record, you can’t win the WH by running on wokeism alone which is pretty much his entire agenda. People care about bread and butter issues which he has no real record on in Floreedah.

    683. Tgca says:

      Other than woke justice, what has DeSanctimonius done in Floreedah that wasn’t handed to him on a platter by Rick Scott who actually turned Floreedah around when it was in dire trouble in 2010 with a crashed housing market, one of the worst in the country and sone of the highest unemployment rates.

      Please tell me what policies DeSanctimonius has that have made our lives drastically better. Be specific!

      Half Moon Bay is a small quiet town along the CA coast about 25 miles south San Francisco in San Mateo County. Nice scenic routes and landscape, and very upper middle class with most homes in the $1M range.

      I used to go to farmer markets there and take rides along the coast when I lived in San Francisco. Pretty and relaxed scenic views with nice winding roads.

      Utah poll shows Trump ahead of DeSanctimonius 42 to 29 in state poll.

      Among the GOP 18 to 54 year olds, he beats DeSanctimonius by 24 points with DeSanctimonius besting him in the 55+ age group by only 5 points.

      Must surprising, Trump beat DeSanctimonius among GOP women by a staggering 29 points.

      If Trump is doing this well against DeSanctimonius in one of the most conservative states, that does not bode well for DeSanctimonius if these polls hold.

      Sounds like Utahns prefer Trump back in the WH.

      705. A previous Utah poll had shown DiSantis in front.

      “The latest survey comes after other evidence revealed that DeSantis, not Trump, may be the ultimate Utah candidate. More than seven dozen Republican leaders in the state urged the Governor to form an exploratory committee late last year.

      A survey released last month from the Deseret News/Hinckley Institute of Politics showed that of Republicans who intended to vote in the 2024 Primary (75% of the 802 total polled), 29% would vote for DeSantis, 19% for Trump, and 12% for Cheney. That poll was in the field in late November.”

    690. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      I tend to agree the RRH statement on Utah: “Utah is a red state, but one that has been trending left in recent years.” At one time, students at BYU, the conservative Mormon university, used to overwhelming identify as Republican. Now in a recent survey they identified as 49% Republican and 30% Democrat.

    691. Tgca says:


      So according to this latest poll then, DeSanctimonius lost ground while Trump gained which seems to be consistent with other polls.

      So the GOP gubbernor who is less popular than a dozen other gubbernors, mostly GOP ones and was elected by lesser margins and accomplished less than them should be the Golden Calf and GOP nominee?

      I’m still waiting for someone to tell me what he has done other than ridicule Disney, get Ben Sasse hired as president of Florida University and become the ire of CA and NY politicians and the MSM that made him a household name.

    692. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      “We are constantly exerting pressure on the government in Berlin to make its Leopards available,” Morawiecki said.

      A Polish government spokesman, Piotr Mueller, later told state television that seeking Germany’s permission was “an important gesture and we will certainly carry it out in the coming days.

      1st, people realize with the GOP Lil’ Red Ripple in 2022, there needs to be a counterbalance to the reckless left wing policies of the Biden team and Trump has a proven record so folks are willing to take Trump back warts and all.

      2nd, the more info that comes out of Twitter and DOJ/FBI corruption vindicates Trump and folks realize he was denied a legitimate 2nd term.

      DeSanctimonius has no proven record other than attacking wokeism in Floreedah unless you count getting Ben Sasse appointed president of Florida University a YUGE success.

      To be fair, corruption is not unique to Zelenskyy administration either since it’s been an issue in all Ukrainian administrations but what makes this awful at this time is his team is stealing war funds during a war that’s supposed to benefit those most impacted by the war, including food and supply contracts for frontline soldiers.

      That’s unimaginably wrong on every level.

      A legitimate question is whether Zelenskyy was aware of any of this either. Did he participate or cover it up or just oblivious of it all? Either way, it’s a YUGE issue for him now that the genie is out if the bottle.

      Would you give to a charity where you found out charity personnel are stealing?

    758. JeffP says:

      Trump was an excellent foreign policy President. Now that the Uniparty and the industrial military complex is back in charge we will have endless wars.

    759. Tgca says:



      So what should we do about the stolen funds?

      Should we demand accountability?

      Should an independent non-Ukranian auditor be assigned to administrate the funds to ensure distribution is honest and on the up and up?

      We can easily assign an international committee to oversee the distribution of funds and contracts. Audit firms can perform these services, as they do for localities and companies under court orders in many countries.

    760. Bitterlaw says:

      Should Russia be pushed back to the pre-invasion borders? Yes or no? I say yes.

    761. jason says:

      Tgca is a Pro Putin toady lapdog using “corruption” as an excuse to keeping shilling for a country that is MUCH more corrupt than Ukraine and he says I have no credibility?

      I love here.

    762. jason says:

      Let’s just remember. Zelenskyy and his wife, in between her $40,000 shopping sprees”


    763. jason says:


      The issue of corruption in Ukraine has NOTHING to do with the fact the Russians have to be defeated.

      But the Putin Brigade will pretend THAT is the issue at hand.

      Maybe Tgca can tell us when Putin is going to fire people in his administration for “corruption”.

      Until, take your astounding hypocrisy and go back to fondling your Putin dolls.

    764. Tgca says:


      I don’t disagree with that but what’s that got to do with Zelenskyy inner circle stealing military aid for themselves? Russia, like China, are corrupt communist regimes that have done horrible things but that does not excuse the corrupt behavior of our allies.

      It was not one person either. It was a number of them at high levels, including gubbermint prosecutors responsible for dealing with corruption.

      Again, it would be like Biden having 4 of his cabinet members colluding with 5 gubbernors to steal gubbermint funds and then saying what about Republican corruption.

      It hurts your credibility when you dismiss the blatant corruption of an ally.

      I say we make all future aid contingent on an independent oversight board responsible for reviewing and distributing military aid in Ukraine since Ukraine can’t be trusted to do it itself.

    765. Tgca says:


      I get it! Jadon is pro-corruption for those he likes but anti-corruption for those he doesn’t like.

      You are a Zelenskyy lapdog! Just be a man and admit it.

    766. jason says:

      Jadon is pro-corruption”


      Coming from a Putin supporter it is hilarious.

    767. Tgca says:


      No one is arguing Ukraine should be abandoned or aid should cease.

      We do need oversight of the aid though.

      When a president’s inner circle is compromised and corrupt, it’s not something to ignore.

      You just don’t want this to be an issue because you’re afraid it tarnishes Zelenskyy…which it does since it’s a number of people in his inner circle.

      Again, would you excuse it away if it was Biden?

    768. jason says:

      I say we make all future aid contingent on an independent oversight board responsible for reviewing and distributing military aid in Ukraine”

      I say take your pro-Putin talking points and GFY>

    769. jason says:

      “oversight board”

      Translation: let Putin annex Ukraine.

    770. jason says:

      So corrupt Ukrainians were removed from their positions for being corrupt. Good. The system to fight corruption seems to be working even during war.”


      I would let the Ukrainians, who are the most interested that the weapons are put to good use, do “oversight”.

      And it seems that is exactly what they are doing.

    771. jason says:

      Again, would you excuse it away if it was Biden?”

      If Biden discovered corruption in his administration, I would recommend he follow Zelensky’s example.

    772. Tgca says:


      I’ve NEVER supported Pootin!

      Find one post that proves that. I’ve criticized Russia for the invasion and took a harsher stance against Russia on the onset to shut down the war than you did. I supported a NFZ and boots on the ground from day one but you were a coward and did not support it because you don’t want your kids to have to go to war.

      You can resort to making up lies and calling people names all you want but maybe we should do the same with you.

      If we’re Pootin lapdogs, how about we refer to you as Jadon, the child molestor supporter since you support ILLEGAL immigration and we know these cartels are trafficking kids into this country for sex. Does that work for you?

    773. Tgca says:


      BS! You’d be calling Biden corrupt and arguing there’s no way all these people in his inner circle could be corrupt and he didn’t know as you routinely do with corrupt Dems.

      You are applying a double standard that you often argue about others do.


    774. Tgca says:


      Using your logic then, Jadon must also agree that because a few lower level FBI and DOJ people were recently fired then the system worked and corruption has been weeded out of the DOJ and FBI and there are not two totes of justice.

      Ha! Ha! Ha!

      You are a complete joke!

      Just admit it! It’s ok! We all know!

      You’re a Zelenskyy LAPDOG!

    775. Tgca says:


      I say take your pro-Putin talking points and GFY


      I support corruption of those I like but not those I dislike.

    776. Tgca says:

      Ok. I think Jadon, the Zelenskyy LAPDOG, has been exposed enough as a HYPOCRITE and corruption supporter tonight so let’s give him some time to lick his wounds.

    777. jason says:

      I support Zelensky.

      Tgca supports Putin.

      Enough said.

    778. jason says:

      I am fine with being called a Zelensky supporter.

      I certainly admire him and his resolve to fight off the Russian invaders.

      When is Tgca going to admit he is a star struck admirer of Putin?

      Come on, fess up, its already out of the bag.

    779. jason says:

      how about we refer to you as Jadon, the child molestor supporter since you support ILLEGAL immigration and we know these cartels are trafficking kids into this country for sex. Does that work for you?”

      Sure does.

      Bitter, should I rent a van for the points?

    780. jason says:

      Tgca is hysterical.

      I guess he can’t deal with the fact his hero Putin has not yet managed to annex the Ukraine.

    781. jason says:

      I supported a NFZ and boots on the ground from day one”

      Liar. Your supported European boots on the ground, not US boots.

      I supported a NFZ led by the US.

    782. Tina says:

      Cry more.

      Adam Schiff

      Kevin McCarthy just kicked me and @RepSwalwell off the Intelligence Committee.

      This is petty, political payback for investigating Donald Trump.

      If he thinks this will stop me, he will soon find out just how wrong he is.

      I will always defend our democracy.

    783. JeffP says:

      How about adding this little “incident” into the corruption fray. Looks a VERY Sus to me. Unbelievable.

      Ukraine’s interior ministry leadership killed in helicopter crash.

      The whole dang lot of them.

    784. Tgca says:


      I’m not calling you a Zelenskyy supporter, I’m calling you a Zelenskyy LAPDOG!

    785. Tgca says:


      BS! Learn reading comprehension.

      I supported US troops involved as long as the Europeans led the coalition. I still believe that. Americans should not go it alone while Europeans sit home or don’t take responsibility for their own back yard.

      I posted about that a number of times.

      You’ve always been about just sending money and didn’t want to use force to avoid your kids having to fight in a war.

    786. JeffP says:

      805 Classic. Tina …you know they say payback is a beitch. Kevin Mac has grown a spine with MTG by his side instead of Luntz.

    787. Tgca says:


      I fixed your post.

      TgcaJadon, the Zelenskyy LAPDOG is hysterical.

      I guess he can’t deal with the fact his hero Zelenskyy has been caught red-handed in a corruption scandal stealing funds designated for food and supplies for Ukrainian soldier’s and displaced victims of the war. Putin has not yet managed to annex the Ukraine.

    788. JeffP says:

      The Ukraine Interior Minister, Deputy Interior Minister and State Secretary died in the crash. That’s crazy with their importance they would all be together like that in chopper in a war zone. Even more Sus.

    789. JeffP says:

      I am still waiting to see if the talk on tanks turns into real action. It’s one thing to be all together at the WEF in agreement and then return home and face the people and your party.

    790. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      Sounds like The Ukrainian press and anti-corruption groups are active in the Ukraine. By the way, in the U.S. there have also been scandals involving graft and bribery in military procurement contracts — corruption needs to be prosecuted regardless of where it takes place. I posted in the past about supporting McCarthy’s call for greater accountability. It is good it is taking place:

      “Although Reznikov did not personally sign the defense food and catering contract worth 13 billion hryvnias (€326 million), journalists and watchdogs said that he had ultimate responsibility and had publicly stated his zero tolerance toward corruption. Reznikov called the accusations a smear campaign, aimed at undermining trust in the defense ministry and its reputation among international partners.

      While Reznikov is vigorously defending the ministry’s contract, Deputy Minister of Communities, Territories and Infrastructure Development Vasyl Lozynskiy was fired almost immediately. The National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine (NABU) reported the deputy minister was busted while accepting a $400,000 bribe for facilitating an overpriced power-generating equipment purchase.

      David Arakhamia, head of Servant of the People faction in the Ukrainian parliament, affiliated to Zelenskyy, promised some of the corrupt officials could face jail terms this spring.

      “Since February 24, officials at all levels have been constantly warned through official and unofficial channels: focus on the war, help the victims, reduce bureaucracy and stop doing dubious business. Many of them have actually listened, but some, unfortunately, did not,” Arakhamia said in a Telegram statement. “If it doesn’t work in a civilized way, it will be done according to the laws of wartime. This applies both to recent purchases of generators and to fresh scandals in the ministry of defense.”

      Food for soldiers’ scandal
      Yurii Nikolov, an investigative journalist and founder of the Nashi Groshi (Our Money) investigative website, who broke the defense procurement story for Ukrainian news website ZN.UA, wants to see action rather than more promises from politicians.”

    791. jason says:

      I am still waiting to see if the talk on tanks turns into real action”

      Poor bastard. Hoping against hope Ukraine doesn’t get tanks so his hero Putin can prevail.

    793. jason says:

      A baldfaced lie.

      There is no evidence Zelensky was “stealing funds”. None. Nada. Zilch.

      You really are a little sniveling Putin toady.

    794. jason says:

      JeffP is happy that a terrible tragedy happened, a Ukrainian helicopter with official aboard hit a power line and crashed killing everyone and several children at a school.

      What a despicable scumbag.

    795. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      The U.S. has in recent years had a series of military procurement scandals. I won’t even go into those that took place in World War II — but it does not mean we should not have fought the war:

      “Leonard Francis pleaded guilty in 2015 to offering $500,000 in bribes to navy officers to steer work to his shipyards

      Tue 6 Sep 2022 00.25 EDT
      A Malaysian businessman who pleaded guilty in the US navy’s worst corruption scandal has escaped house arrest in San Diego after cutting off his monitoring bracelet, federal authorities have said”

      Leonard Glenn Francis, known as Fat Leonard, who pleaded guilty in 2015 to offering $500,000 in bribes to navy officers, was due to be sentenced in a few weeks.

      The supervisory deputy, US Marshal Omar Castillo, said Francis fled from his home on Sunday morning, the San Diego Union-Tribune reported. Officers who arrived at the property found it empty but discovered parts of his broken GPS tracker bracelet.”

    796. Tgca says:


      There is no evidence Biden is corrupt either.

      None. Nada. Zilch.

      So Biden must NOT be corrupt…But you believe he is.

      …and who would determine if Zelenskyy is corrupt if the ministers reporting to him are corrupt?

      Zelensky LAPDOG Jadon has double standards for political corruption.

    797. Tgca says:

      SDC trying to normalize Zelenskyy administration corruption now by sourcing corruption scandals in the US.

      The difference is that US military corruption scandals did not involve the inner circle of the president and 4 Gubbernors like in Ukraine.

      Spin away SDC.

      Spin away.

    798. Paul says:

      Tgca, the Putin fart smeller has lost any rational thought.

    799. Paul says:

      Tgca: Go to hell with your lies. You have no evidence whatsoever of this corruption. My research shows there is absolutely no truth to it. Just Putin propaganda that you are deep throating.

    800. Tgca says:


      More lies from Zelenskyy’s LAPDOG Jadon, who supports ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION, knowing full well cartels are s*x trafficking kids into the US with such illegal immigration …so speak about despicable.

      Jeffie made no such claim as Zelenskyy’s LAPDOG Jadon claimed. Jeffie simply noted it was suspicious and that it was crazy to have key gubbermint people traveling together on helicopters in a war zone country.

      If Zelenskyy’ LAPDOG Jadon is soooo worried about kids, why not worry about those s*x trafficked by the ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION he’s supported over the years.

    801. Paul says:

      Tgca, you are an idiot.

    802. Tgca says:


      Your evidence?

      Ha! Ha! Ha!

      What is your evidence? Post it for the world to see.

      Does your evidence contradict all the major media agencies, left and right, like WSJ, Fox, NYT, Federalist, BBC, Guardian, CBS, NBC, AP, CNN, Washington Times, LAT, etc etc etc that are ALL reporting on the corruption scandal?

    803. Paul says:

      JeffP: Go get yourself sex trafficked. We don’t like you anymore.

    804. Tgca says:


      Paul…and you’re a scumbag Biden troll.

      Your point?

    805. JeffP says:

      Hit a power line….really and you believe that. How in the world does that happen to the whole department of interior leadership. Now they might have crappy pilots in the Ukraine. But that is beyond an incompetent for a pilot to be an accident. Power lines sure.

    806. Tgca says:


      Funny coming from someone everyone here ridicules as a troll.

      You’re about as well regarded as Robbie.

    807. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      821. Hunter Biden and Bill Clinton and his corrupt foundation are not part of the inner circle of the government? Remember Vice President Dick Cheney and Haliburton in Iraq?

      Let’s not forget that Joe Biden made a special trip to the Ukraine some years back to demand a Ukrainian prosecutor be fired who was investigating a corrupt Ukrainian company that Hunter Biden was involved with.

      The U.S. should continue it’s aid to the Ukraine, and as Kevin McCarthy has advocated, we need fiscal accountability — that includes for money that likely is being siphoned off by Biden for use in the U.S.

    808. Paul says:

      Tgca: I’m a scumbag. But at least, I’m not a traitor like you.

      JeffP: In a war, one might fly lower than normal. And go to hell.

    809. JeffP says:

      Paul my wife was sex trafficked in suburbia white collar circles by her father as a child and teen. If you said that to my face I would end up in jail and you would be in the hospital on life support.

      I wasn’t talking about your wife. I just want you sex trafficked. Okay. Now, go to hell.

    811. Tgca says:


      So Paul admits he’s a bagful of wasted sperm.

      Good to know.

      Not that we didn’t already conclude that.

    812. JeffP says:

      I have zero respect for people who type crap on the internet that they would never back up face to face. Paul you are dead to me.

    813. Paul says:

      JeffP: I am already dead.

    814. Tgca says:



      I do not disagree we should continue military aid to Ukraine. But it’s widely known to be the 2nd most corrupt country within European borders besides Russia and has been so for its couple of decades existence since it left the USSR.

      I think we need to have an independent oversight auditor mange the distribution of military aid in Ukraine and not Ukrainian gubbermint controlling the funds.

      …and let’s be realistically, you seriously can’t compare corruption in the US to Ukraine even in the scandals under numerous presidents including EVERY president since Kennedy to Biden.

      By the way, Zelenskyy’s LAPDOG Jadon will be all over you for suggesting the Bush administration was involved in any corruption in Iraq. He thinks what GWB did in Iraq was NOBLE!

    815. Tgca says:


      If only that were true!


    816. JeffP says:

      I just watched a video of the helicopter and it did not even come close the hitting a wire. It was spinning out of control at about at least 1000 feet. It looked like something malfunctioned. That’s Sus. So the wire thing is a lie.

    817. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      838. Tgca, I am not necessarily opposed to what you suggest. Goes back to McCarthy’s accountability proposal. I believe Ukraine aid monies may be siphoned off for use in the U.S. as well. When a Biden(s) is involved there needs to be a full accounting of how funds are spent.

    818. JeffP says:

      Just as I suspected the helicopter didn’t hit a power line. That’s BS. The video clearly shows the helicopter spinning out of control extremely high altitude. There has been no clear determination on its cause. Malfunction, sabotage, pilot error and friendly fire are possible causes. Regardless with all the corruption going on and high level officials involved it leaves questions.

    819. Tgca says:


      Then we can agree there needs to be accountability as a qualification for further military aid. We just don’t send money and weapons without SOME attempt at accountability.

      No one expects 100% perfection. But independent auditors can be useful in distribution and accounting for how funds and equipment are disbursed.

      Auditors can work with Ukraine officials to delegate disbursements of money and equipment.

    820. Tgca says:


      You must be a Pootin lapdog if you question anything that comes out of Ukraine other than the official explanation from corrupt Ukrainian officials.

      Everything Ukraine says is true. All else is Russian propaganda! Ukraine does not engage in propaganda.

      Got it!

    821. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      I hate global warming:

      “On January 7th, 1971, the National Weather Service recorded the lowest temperature ever in Arizona. The temperature, recorded at the Hawley Lake observation station located in the White Mountains of Eastern Arizona, was -40 degrees Fahrenheit.”

      Because of global warming, California is in permanent drought. It’s fake news that California had a massive amount of rain and the reservoirs are filling up.

    822. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      Meanwhile, Putin is unhappy:

      “After months of reluctance, the US and Germany reportedly plan to send tanks to Ukraine, in what Kyiv hopes will be a game-changer on the battlefield.

      US President Joe Biden’s administration is expected to announce plans to send at least 30 M1 Abrams tanks.

      German Chancellor Olaf Scholz has also reportedly decided to send at least 14 Leopard 2 tanks.

      Russia’s ambassador to the US blasted the news as “another blatant provocation”.”

    823. Tgca says:

      Watch the video.

      Now this is the McCarthy we need and should have had all along. This new McCarthy is thanks to the 20 Patriots who challenged him to step up and not follow status quo.

      Too bad this McCarthy wasn’t around the last couple of years but better late than never.

      Now if only Mitchie can be more like this.

    824. Tina says:

      I have no issues with McCarthy so far.

      Biden’s Beotch, on the other hand…

    825. jason says:

    828. jason says:

      Of course, every day that goes by and Ukraine doesn’t surrender is a bad day for JeffP

    829. jason says:

      This new McCarthy is thanks to the 20 Patriots”

      I love moron logic.

      The tiny group of hostage takers with “I am for sale” stickers on their foreheads did everything they could to keep McCarthy from being speaker.

      Now these losers want to take credit for him?

      Zzzzzzz…..sorry, no can do.

      The 200+ who stood on principle and did not waver and did not give up get credit for McCarthy as speaker.

      The “patriots” can GFTs.

    830. jason says:

      Then we can agree there needs to be accountability as a qualification for further military aid. We just don’t send money and weapons without SOME attempt at accountability”

      You and the other Putin toadies agreed on that?

      I think the best “accountability” is the results on the battlefield.

      So far it seems Ukraine has been using the aid to heroically at least contain the Russians.

      Fortunately, further aid is not going to held hostage to any bogus and fake “accountability”, an excuse to prop up Putin.

      There are enough votes in the R and D caucuses to continue to support Ukraine.

    831. jason says:

      If you said that to my face I would end up in jail and you would be in the hospital on life support.”


      I wouldn’t worry too much, Paul.

      JeffP might play tough Internet guy here but I bet in real life he is a wimp and pussy, it is not only in Ukraine that he would always cut and run.

      That said, families should always be left out of any arguments here. But your post did not attack his wife, he is making that up.

    832. jason says:

      “BERLIN/KYIV (Reuters) -Germany cleared the way on Wednesday for Europe to send scores of battle tanks to Ukraine, and Washington was poised make a similar announcement – moves hailed by Kyiv as a potential turning point in the war, and condemned by Moscow as escalation.

      Kyiv has been calling for months for Western main battle tanks that would give its forces greater firepower, protection and mobility to break through Russian defensive lines and potentially reclaim occupied territory.

      Germany, previously the West’s holdout, said it would send an initial company of 14 of its Leopard 2 tanks from its own stocks, and also approve shipments by other European countries.

      The eventual aim would be to supply Ukraine with two battalions of Leopards, typically comprising three or four companies each, the first to arrive within three or four months.”

    833. jason says:

      JeffP is REALLY having a bad day…

      Yesterday he said he was “waiting for action’ on the tanks.

      Didn’t have to wait long.

      Btw, JeffP, do you approve of providing Ukraine with these tanks?

      Yes or no?

      NEWS: MTG wants to be Trump VP

      “She sees herself on the short list,” Steve Bannon told NBC.

      A second source who has advised her said her “whole vision” is to get on the ticket.

      This explains the *why* of her oft-chronicled recent rebrand efforts.

      – This is the disastrous future Jason fraud wants for the party. An election denying QAnon ticket.

    837. Bitterlaw says:

      Fraud and graft involved with US defense spending on Ukraine is part of the calculus. The main reason to be giving the money and material to Ukraine is that it is in the US interests to do so. (Some here base their support of Ukraine on morality – they are wrong). Does the graft outweigh US interests? Not yet.

      From the British Telegraph newspaper:

      “The West is poised to send nearly 200 battle tanks to Ukraine in a potential hammer blow that could help Kyiv win its war against Vladimir Putin.

      It came after Germany finally succumbed to weeks of international pressure and agreed to donate some of its Leopard 2 tanks.

      Berlin also relented on allowing other countries, such as Poland, to re-export German-made Leopard 2s, which could happen within days.

      Meanwhile, the United States dropped its opposition to sending M1 Abrams tanks – potentially dozens of them – in a major escalation of its involvement.”

      We have not been made privy of exactly what they sold out for, but for sure they got committee assignments and rules changes and other privileges they were not entitled too as a tiny minority of the caucus. And promises for stupid things like a vote on a 30% value added tax which is going nowhere.

      I find the theory that it was ok to hold the party and the country hostage against the wishes of 90% of the caucus because some of the things the hostage takers got are “good” pretty nauseating.

      Spain, which owns one of the largest fleets of Leopards in the EU, with 347 tanks, has previously said it would send tanks to Kyiv as part of a European coalition, according to El País.

      The Norwegian government is considering sending eight of its 36 Leopard tanks to Ukraine, but no decision has been made yet, Norwegian daily DN reported late Tuesday after a meeting of the parliamentary committee on foreign affairs and defense, quoting sources close to the deliberation.

      Portugal, which has 37 Leopards, could provide four tanks to the assembling European coalition, a source close to the government told Correio da Manhã late on Tuesday.

      Agreed! DeSanctimonius and others should get off their high horse about being totally anti-vax NOW since he recommended, but did not require vaxing in Floreedah when he himself was vaxed but has refused to disclose if and how many boosters he has gotten since I last checked. Why refuse to disclose it? My gut feeling is he has gotten boosters but knows it is politically damaging to admit it now.

      If people know the risks, they should decide whether they want the vax and boosters or not. There should be no forcing it for schooling, work, restaurants, etc.

      Anyone who lost their job over it should be compensated appropriately since we NOW know having the vax does not stop transmission or guarantee a healthy outcome. Many with the vax have been hospitalized and died.

      Gubbermint officials or manufacturers who knew about the effectiveness or dangers of the vax and withheld that information from the public should be criminally charged and prosecuted.

      For starters, we believe Dr. Fow-chee has LIED to the American public and Congress. He belongs in jail!

    898. Tgca says:

      Europe is ahead of the US on the use of the vax for about a year where certain countries have recommended that the younger population, generally 30 and below don’t get the vax because of some concerning trending unknown risks identified in young healthy males in particular.

      For the elderly, mainly over 65 and those with compromised immune systems or other comorbidities, the risks of COVID mortality outweigh the risks of the vax so it’s their choice.

      DeSanctimonius pushed Dr. Fow-chee and CDC guidance all throughout 2020 but wisely, like other GOP Gubbernors, did NOT require vax in 2021, to participate in everyday society.

      As you may recall, there were some here who felt businesses had a right to discriminate against the unvaxed and deny them services which in retrospect was short-sighted and discriminatory denying people basic civil rights.

      Denying someone that is unvaxed access to a restaurant because they may make others sick is NO different than the RACIST policies of the past requiring AA to eat and drink from certain areas only because they posed risks of transmitting diseases to whites.

      The Russians are the invaders, they are the ONLY ones “escalating” anything.

      Every square foot of land they occupy in Ukraine is an escalation. Every civilian they kill is an escalation. Every bomb and missile they fire inside Ukraine is an escalation.

      Ukraine defending itself is not an escalation.

      Then let’s give Ukraine NOOKYOOLER weapons instead of drip drip drip with conventional weapons that could drag out the war for years.

      Zelenskyy then tells Russia that he will level Moscow if Russia further attacks them or tries to take over their country.

      My gut feeling is Russia backs down and leaves Ukraine rather than face a NOOK strike by Ukraine.

      A NOOK is a lot cheaper than all the equipment we’re sending Ukraine and will put them on an even playing field with Russia and deter any further aggression from Russia.

      Very simple!

      Win-win situation for both Ukraine and American taxpayers.

      BTW,Russia has the largest by far strategic and tactical nuclear force,and a relatively new one. The LAST thing anyone should want is to up the antenna to the nuclear level.
      The notion a few Ukrainian nuclear weapons would deter Russia is laughable. Ukraine literally would be turned to ashes within an hour.
      The stuff that gets posted here is stunning

    916. Gordon Allen says:

      Ante,not antenna.
      The Nuclear deterrent to Russia comes from Britain, France and mostly US of course.
      I wish our Nuclear modernization program was further along in actually deploying something new than it is

    917. Bitterlaw says:

      Gordon – So if Russia threatens to use nuclear weapons in Ukraine, the US and European nations should just say, “Sorry, Ukraine. No more weapons. Not worth it.” Why would Russia stop doing whatever it wants if the “We have nukes” strategy works in Ukraine?

    918. jason says:


      More “if we don’t let Putin invade any country he wants to and if we don’t let him slaughter as many Ukrainians as he wants to we are risking nuclear war” BS.

      This is like the Covid debacle. “Listen to the experts” who lied about the origins/lab leak; lied about getting the vax = no Covid; and then lied about funding the labs.

      Fair point, but applied to all R presidential candidates

      DeSantis must address where he stands on the Ukraine conflict. It appears, based on his decision to hire Pushaw (as well as his congressional record, and support from Ken Griffin, Paul Ryan, the Bushes) that he would be a NEOCON president on foreign policy! Many, many questions!

    927. Tina says:

      Besides being stupidly understaffed, looks like the capitol police used gas on the j6 protesters who were peaceful and became enraged after the flash grenades and gassing.

      Moreover, this is thpid because the capitol police were gassed by their own munitions. That is why the capitol police had to retreat.

      This will definitely become a big election issue now if it already wasn’t. Trump going gainst the Uniparty again.

      What’s the saying…Imitation if the highest form of flattery. Well not from Paul.

    930. jason says:

      DeSantis is a NEOCON because he wants to do the right think in Ukraine?

    936. jason says:

      Now that JeffP’s lies about Europeans and NATO not supporting Ukraine have been debunked (lukewarm, LOL) we are back to “nuke scare”.

      Ending the war now means Putin wins. Trump is wrong. Both can be true.

    938. jason says:

      I agree with Trump.

      All the Russians have to do is get out of Ukraine, the easiest way to end the war.

    939. jason says:

      Ending the war now means Putin wins”

      Of course.

      Why do you think the Putin Brigade wants Ukraine to surrender.

    942. jason says:

      I am sure if Trump was actually in office he wouldn’t let the Russians win either.

      If anything he would probably be more aggressive against the Russians, with the caveat that he would try to negotiate before bringing down the hammer.

      He would negotiate from a position of strength.

      Of course, I don’t think the Russians would have invaded if Trump had been re-elected.

      ‘they were lukewarm to giving tanks”

      Nah, nah, no moving goalposts. Tanks my ass.

      You said “They are lukewarm in difference making support”

      That is wrong because the aid given so far has made all the difference, Putin would be on a guided tour of Kiev had the West not stepped up with aid.

    947. Bitterlaw says:

      I think Putin would have ordered the invasion even if Trump was still President. He believed his forces would overwhelm Ukraine in days so the identity of the US President did not matter.

      – This poll continues an interesting trend of DeSantis doing very well in the individual states while Trump polls well nationally.

      In 2012 and 2016, the state polling proved superior to national polling. Of course, we’re 12 months from any votes and it’s not a certainty DeSantis runs, but this is something to watch.

    949. JeffP says:

      I was wrong. I am shocked Germany agreed. The Democratic Socialist Party and Green Party have been non intervention. With their past history German tanks killing Russian soldiers takes this to a whole new level from both countries perspective. I was reading German newspapers last night and the public sentiment is very mixed and several comments from Berlin mentioned WW 2.

    950. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      940. “Ukraine literally would be turned to ashes within an hour.”

      Ukraine is about 230,000 square miles in size; for comparison Germany is about 138,000 square miles in size. Also, as was learned with Chernobyl, Russia is in effect “downwind” of the Ukraine. A Russian nuclear attack on Ukraine is going to result a major radiation impacts to Russia’s population.

      974. Agree. Putin made a huge blunder and there is no Plan B. His military is being decimated and hundreds of thousands of draft age Russians males have fled the country. NATO is providing funding and weaponry, but otherwise watching from the sidelines as Putin gets mauled.

      “A Russian wife turned to her husband and asked, “What’s this special military operation our glorious leader keeps talking about?” Her husband replied, “It’s a war to stop America and NATO.” “Oh, right” she says “How’s it going?”

      “Well” he replied “so far we have lost over 20 generals, 110,000 troops killed, countless injured, 3000 tanks, 300 aircraft, hundreds of helicopters, countless armoured vehicles, artillery and trucks, our flagship along with other naval ships, our army is being defeated in most areas and we have had to resort to conscription to replace our losses”.

      @MULawPoll | 382 RV | Jan 9-20

      – It won’t be a two-way race, but what this poll shows is Trump’s appeal has a ceiling and, right now, it’s a low one. DeSantis, if he runs, needs to make sure the field is as small as possible.

      I’m sure Nikki Haley sees this as well and it’s why she’s going to run. She knows if she can shave off some of DeSantis’ support, that will make Trump the nominee. I suspect she thinks Trump will reward her with the VP pick for kneecapping DeSantis.

      “This poll continues an interesting trend of DeSantis doing very well in the individual states while Trump polls well nationally.”

      Robbie: check out the Marquette poll today above. It’s a national poll. DeSantis crushes Trump in HTH.
      It may just be that certain national polls are lagging and haven’t expanded the outreach of their respondents.

      Either way: I would MUCH rather be DeSantis than Trump right now based on all the polling.

    963. jason says:

      I think the Golden Calf has a better chance of winning the GE IF he runs the right campaign. And I don’t agree that Trump has no chance of winning the GE. I think Trump would beat Mayor Butt or Kamala or even Biden. Less sure about Newsome.

      However, if Haley, Pompeo, and others run for President it will be difficult for the Golden Calf to win the nomination.

      I don’t see Trump winning less than 35-40% of the primary vote, which would be enough for him to get the majority of delegates.

    964. Waingro says:

      “I’m sure Nikki Haley sees this as well and it’s why she’s going to run. She knows if she can shave off some of DeSantis’ support, that will make Trump the nominee. I suspect she thinks Trump will reward her with the VP pick for kneecapping DeSantis”

      She’s delusional. She is already despised by Tucker/protectionist crowd and much of Team MAGA. She is a non-starter as a Trump VP.

      You’re right, however, that her only play may be to run a pathetic Chris Christie kamakazi-like “campaign” against DeSantis, but there are going to be others doing that too. Not sure that will be effective, and I’m pretty confident DeSantis is no Rubio — putting aside the fact that he already is enjoying a much bigger polling cushion than Rubio ever did.

    965. Waingro says:

      #992, also some of these people may decide it’s better to hedge as a kamakazi against TRUMP and earn some future benefits of a possible DeSantis administration. In other words, this could also just be a strategical wash.

    966. jason says:

      I doubt “You need to feel my pain Haley” thinks Trump will pick her for VP. As Wain says, she is a non-starter as Trump’s VP.

      I think she figures that in a divided field she might have a chance, and maybe even be the Golden Calf’s VP.

      She is certainly a non-starter as someone I would vote for.

      In July 2020, an email from then-Central Bucks Superintendent John Kopicki acknowledged the legal limits to online instruction for the upcoming school year.

      NOOKYOOLER weapons are a deterrent to invasions and starting wars. That has always been and is still the prevalent belief.

      Ukraine doesn’t need to have the same stockpile as Russia. It just needs one NOOK and seriously consider using it.

      If Russia tries to take over Ukraine, one NOOKYOOLER weapon is all that Ukraine needs to have.

      Israel is in the same situation. Its neighbors know Israel has NOOKS and they know Israel would rightfully use them if attacked by its neighbors if it had no prospect of winning rather than surrendering.

      Israel would burn the Middle East to the ground 1st before surrendering.

      Russia did similar in WW2 when they burned their own cities rather than let them be captured and occupied.

      If Russia believes Ukraine would do the same, they’d give up this effort.

      Colorado baker loses on appeal.


      I think it’s wrong that people seek him out to create legal issues but at the same time, he is granted a business license as a PRIVILEGE to operate and should abide by the local and state laws in order to operate under that license…and if those laws say you can’t discriminate so be it.

      It is ABSURD to argue baking a cake is an expression of freedom of speech that allows him to complain his religious rights are violated if he must bake a cake for gays and trannies celebrations.

      If a baker can argue the cake he prepares for someone is an expression of freedom of speech and he should not be forced to bake a cake for those celebrating a lifestyle he disagrees with on religious or other freedom of speech grounds, then a chef in a restaurant can refuse to serve gays or blacks if they’re there celebrating something the chef objects to on religious or freedom of speech grounds.

      Whether baking a cake or prepping a meal, there is little difference in the art form of performing the tasks to develop a unique final product no matter how similar to other cakes or meals.

      This is nonsense on both sides.

      Activists should leave him alone and stop trying to provoke him and he should grow up and accept he must abide by the laws for the privilege of operating a business because baking a cake does not deny you the right to practice your religion. So unless the request is offensive in nature by societal standards (e.g. profane), either honor the request or forfeit you business license.

      My opinion on the Baker – if the person is asking for a cake that would normally be made by the baker (ie. cake with pink and blue frosting), then the baker should make it, despite the purchaser telling him what it symbolizes. If they hadn’t told him what the colors represents in their minds, he would have made it. As far as that article states, they didn’t ask for anything special, so if that is the case, I think the baker should fulfill the request.

      I believe Biden’s cowardly withdraw from Afghanistan played a major role in Putin’s decision to invade Afghanistan. He realized Biden was a total boob, with pacifist beliefs.

      Good thing that dictator wanna-be Zelenskyy, dressing like a slob like he just came off fighting from the frontlines of a battle field, as he visits the WH and Congress, did not use that media exploitation to his advantage as propaganda to benefit Ukraine.

      All leaders use media to their advantage. It’s called politics!

      Tucker is a highly intelligent, articulate and generally has excellent commentary on issues of the day and he’s no stooge like some who will believe anything fed them.

      As usual, Trump is right on Ukraine though he is a bit rough around the edges in articulating his point.

      We are giving our advanced weaponry to one of the most corrupt countries in the world that we would not otherwise trust on any given day so don’t be surprised if it comes back to haunt us later, at the expense of American lives.

      We already know weapons supplied Ukraine are showing up in the hands of terrorists and criminals in Africa and Europe. …and how did those weapons get there?

      Ukrainian gubbermint is a corrupt cesspool of criminals and ex-commies with a manipulating media savvy actor as its current leader so giving them advanced weaponry is concerning.

      I’m concerned we’re making the same mistake Reagan did with embracing Hussein in the 80s, funding a dictator regime and providing him equipment and funds to develop WMD that he later turned on others.

      Here we go again with Ukraine all the time.
      Meanwhile a top Pfizer executive is caught on tape saying they’re doing gain of function research like the Wuhan lab, that ” everyone knows” Covid sprang from that lab ,that Covid has been and will be a “Cash Cow” for Pfizer, that regulators are in their pocket,and there is continuing fear of a leak of a more potent strain.
      Does anyone here care about the US here first,as opposed to Ukraine?
      Appears not.

    1008. Gordon Allen says:

      How about Deborah Birx admitting in her own just released book that the government ( her and Fauci)KNEW the vaccines did not block the spread of Covid or even getting it ,when lockdowns and vaccine mandates were imposed and deliberately lied?

    1009. Gordon Allen says:

      Trump like many here( me) believes China is the main danger to the US,not Russia.
      As DeSantis unequivocally does also the two main GOP contenders for the nomination are more anti China,than pro Ukraine/ anti Russian.

    1010. Phil says:

      China IS a bigger threat to the US than Russia. That’s just a fact and it’s not in dispute. Doesn’t mean we should write off Russia but economically, militarily and in just about any category you want to mention it’s China, not Russia that is the scariest.

    1011. Tina says:

      They are obviously the biggest threat, economically, militarily, etc.

      Just look at how they brought down the world with the virus that “escaped the lab.”

      A communist dictator using western media as propaganda. ”

      Nah, he isn’t using Western media.

      He is using Putin stooge and Kremlin spokesman Tucker Carlson as propaganda.

      Fixed it for you.

    1013. Tgca says:

      Just like in Iraq, many in the US political spectrum are behind Ukraine simply because it’s an ideology based on instilling fear and making money on defense contracts. If there was no money to be made off Ukraine then you’d hear *crickets*

    1014. Tgca says:


      …and you are a Zelenskyy stooge. You believe everything he spews out regardless of how much corruption is unearthed.

      Go ahead and support corrupt dictators. History will not reflect on your sycophantic idolatry of Zelenskyy anymore than it did with Dr. Fow-chee or will with your pro-China views.

    1015. jason says:

      Trump’s current statements support Ukraine’s surrender.”

      Trump has been consistent in his support for Ukraine, I don’t see it changing.

    1016. jason says:

      Go ahead and support corrupt dictators.”

      Zzzzz….Zelensky is no dictator, democratically elected contrary to your hero Putin’s fake elections.

      Besides, while I greatly admire Zelensky, a real patriot and hero, my support is for Ukraine. He is a symbol of resistance, but the cause is not about him.

      If Zelensky died tomorrow, I would still be supporting Ukraine against the Russians.

      If Putin died tomorrow, you would still be supporting the Russians.

      Therein lies the difference.

    1017. jason says:

      Just watched the video of Paul Pelosi attack. It is pretty much as described.

      Two things stand out.

      If instead of staying grabbing on to the hammer Pelosi had just rushed out the door towards the cops he would have been unharmed.

      Also, cops were a little slow in reacting to a guy with a hammer standing near the doorway. Instead of saying “drop the hammer” they should have just tackled him.

      It looked like Pelosi really didn’t feel like he was going to be harmed, and he did open the door. He could easily have escaped.

    1018. Tgca says:


      I bet you made the same defense of Saddam Hussein in the 80s when Reagan foolishly propped him up and funded him so he could build his WMD program.

      Look at what dictators do and you will see Zelenskyy following the pattern.

      They’re corrupt to the bone.

      They take control of the media and communication so ONLY their message is heard.

      They target religion and outlaw religious practices they don’t like.

      They execute and imprison opponents without trials.

      They lead police and military that violate human rights of prisoners.

      They sic the gubbermint and their police on those who disagree with them.

      All of these things Zelenskyy has done and have been widely reported on by legitimate news sources but you excuse it all away.

      You do the same with China, another dictatorship, and it’s why most here think you’re a China sycophant as well.

    1019. Tgca says:

      More wokeism over health and safety from certain medical professionals and activists.

      So gay groups argue that current blood testing techniques make old discriminatory rules regarding gays donating blood are obsolete so restrictions should be relaxed or lifted.


      Just because a virus is not detectable in a blood sample does not mean no virus is in the blood sample. We know that even small amounts of the virus can hide out in unreachable cell areas for years even decades before becoming active.

      This whole nonsense about NONDECTABLE = NONTRANSMITTABLE is more about battling stigmatism and is bad science.

      You can be nondetectable one month and go off antiviral meds and find out you’re now detectable 3 or 6 months later because the viral load is no longer dormant.

      We should not put people at risk to be PC even if there is unfair stigmatism of those with HIV.

      15% to 20% of gay men are HIV+ and that trend has been consistent throughout the gay community for a decade or two so it’s a risk to allow gay men to donate blood without any other precautions taken than THEIR WORD about their sexual practices.

      Perhaps blood she be identified as being from a gay person or not and let blood recipients choose whether or not they wish to receive blood from gay men. I certainly would not personally now but may think otherwise if I were 85.

      Uh oh!

      China sycophant Jadon hardest hit!

      GOP senators put forth bill, the “China Trade Relations Act,” to strip China of its Permanent Normal Trade Relations status. This legislation would require China to obtain Most Favored Nation status through annual presidential approval.

      The CCP cares about one thing: undermining America. There is no reason why the United States should be helping a communist government’s trade operation through preferential treatment and ‘most-favored-nation’ status. That is absolutely absurd when they are working against us. It is time to put American interests first, not the CCP, and reverse this antiquated law,” said Scott.

      The Chinese Communist Party is not America’s friend, and it is not a force for good in the world. From human rights abuses to the theft of U.S. jobs and intellectual property, the CCP must be held accountable. One of the most effective ways to push back on the CCP is to enact Senator Cotton’s bill to end China’s Permanent Normal Trade Relations status,” said Budd.
