Trump Leads Biden By 3% in New ABC-WaPo Poll

    Buried in this new article from The Washington Post about a new poll they did with ABC News highlighting how it seems very few people want to see a 2020 rematch in 2024 is the actual hypothetical matchup that shows Donald Trump leading Joe Biden by 3%.

    Donald Trump (R) 48%
    Joe Biden (D-inc) 45%

      Somebody needs to just tell these people they are asshats and to just go suck eggs.

      So Gubbernor Sununu goes on lefty ABC This Week and says Trump has no chance of beating Biden because he’s too extreme, and points to the midterms as proof even though like 90%+ candidates Trump supported won.

      …as if Biden is seen as a moderate by the electorate. HA! HA!

      I see a theme here by this RINO moron who also said last week that DeSanctimonius can’t appeal to anyone but his base, implying DeSanctimonius can’t win the GE because he too is too extreme.

      You think this guy is trying to elevate himself as the only viable candidate?

      My guess is he’ll be a 3rd tier candidate washed out within weeks as no one wants a RINO from a lefty leaning state as the GOP nominee. He’ll go the same route as Hogan I would bet.

      Hs China announced yet that they intend to sue to U.S. for $3 million for shooting on their “weather balloon?

      Has the MSM gotten complaints by viewers yet that the videos they air of the balloon getting shot down is triggering them and to demand they stop showing the violence?

      Has anyone complained yet that the balloon is a symbol of white supremacy since it was white?

      Walt said he might move to Canada if the 2024 election is between Trump and Biden.

      Accd. to WaPo poll

      do NOT want Biden in 2024 by 58% NO to 31% yes.


      do not want Trump 49% NO to 44% Yes

      10% no opinion in both parties on the question.
      We all know this means anot4her 10% do not want Bien or Trump.

      Cash is ok living under Trudeau?

      As much as I despise Biden as POTUS, I see Trudeau as worse if you can actually believe someone is worse then Biden.

      Koch Network Vows to Oppose Trump in Republican Presidential Primary: ‘We’ve Got to Turn the Page’

      So the Koch network that is out of step with most conservative voters and wants open borders and more globalism wants to find a candidate to oppose Trump in the primary.

      Of course they do! They want someone they can fund and will be beholden to their interests which is more in line with Soros, Gates, etc.

      Perhaps they’ll start with Hogan or Sununu, RINOs more in line with their views but I doubt conservatives will vote for these elitist Republicans who have contempt for most conservative voters.

      Look at the recent comments both Sununu and Hogan made about MAGA voters and you will see the blatant contempt they have for them.

      Amazing video of baby in womb moving, yawning, turning, etc. The clarity is stunning.

      Every Birthing Person choosing an ABORTION should see a video like this before they decide to heinously MURDER their child.

      …and for the record, by 20 weeks, babies are significantly developed with all limbs, beginning functioning organs, and babies have survived outside the womb at less than 21 weeks even though the official Guinness record is 21 weeks and one day.

      No excuse to kill your babies Birthing People!

      Like I’ve said before, technology and science will prevail over ignorance and prove one day millions of selfish Birthing People having ABORTIONS murdered their babies and SCOTUS completely missed the mark in 1973 with its ignorance.

    11. jason says:

      though the official Guinness record is 21 weeks and one day.”

      So sounds like my 20 week limit is a good one.

    12. jason says:

      And probably 99% of the 21 week are not viable either.

    13. jason says:

      I read up on the BS Tgca was posting about “Western powers blocking a ceasefire”.

      There was no ceasefire actually on the table, Bennett merely thought “there was a good chance of one”.

      “Bennett, who was prime minister and then alternate prime minister in Israel during a confusing period of coalition politics prior to the return of Benjamin Netanyahu as head of government in December, said that “there was a good chance of reaching a ceasefire” before the Western powers “curbed” negotiations in a wide-ranging interview uploaded to YouTube.”

      If you read the interview, Bennett is very pro-Putin and praises him and supports the idea of a “Monroe Doctrine” for Russia, basically saying Russia has a right to intervene in Ukraine and anywhere else in its “sphere or influence’.

      Garbage and drivel. Not to mention Bennett is as moron and his government fell quickly due to incompetence.

      It sounds like Bennet’s “cease fire” idea was basically surrender and that is why Western powers rejected it.

      Plus, it seemed like he had ulterior motives for supporting Putin.

      “Bennett cited Israeli interests in Syria, where “once or twice a week we attack the Iranian presence… Russia, the superpower, has the S-300 there, and if they press the button Israeli pilots will fall.”

      “Who will save them? Biden? Zelensky? It [would have been] my problem,” he said, having earlier suggested that he had “made sure that Israel would have free rein in Syria” during his first in-person meeting with President Vladimir Putin — an ally of the Syrian and Iranian governments — prior the full-scale invasion of Ukraine.”

    14. jason says:

      “Who will save them? Biden? Zelensky? It [would have been] my problem,””

      So Benett wanter Ukraine to surrender because it would “save” Israeli pilots?

      What a great man!

    15. Sheeple,Jr. says:

      I truly hope that after Biden concludes his incoherent and untruthful SOTU address tomorrow night, McCarthy stands-up and tears it to bits. It’s called pulling “The Pelosi”!

    16. Bitterlaw says:

      Russia could have ended the war at any time by withdrawing its troops back to the pre-invasion border.

    17. Tgca says:

      A 20 week ABORTION is still infanticide!

      The baby would survive without murderous interference.

      20 weeks is an arbitrary number not based in science.

      As technology improves so does survival rates since some babies in their 20th week have survived.

      Based on your logic, 100% of women with breast cancer would die of breast cancer if actions weren’t taken to save their lives so it’s fine to not interfere with the cancer then.

      Should we dispense with breast cancer research and treatment too?

      ABORTION is an issue of morality. It’s MURDER of a baby.

      If you’re fine with killing babies, that’s fine but I’m not.

    18. Sheeple,Jr. says:

      #16- BitterLaw
      Your statement is true with one caveat. After “pre-invasion borders”, the words “except for keeping the parts of Ukraine, Biden and other European leaders said were acceptable for Russia to occupy”.

    19. Tgca says:

      My point on Israeli PM Bennet claims is that IF it is true, and both sides were working with him to give assurances, for the West to interfere to disrupt such negotiations is unconscionable interference and shameful. Peace negotiations are NEVER easy.

      None of us were there and he was so you either accept him at his word or not. Whether an actual ceasefire or peace would have ultimately resulted is not the issue here but whether the U.S. and Great Britain interfered with it because of their own agenda.

      Easy to let Ukrainians die for the agendas of others but I bet it would be a different story if it were US and Great Britain’s dying.

      I do not trust Boris or Biden on anything. Both of them have also been failures in leaders and had scandals so I’m not sure critiquing Bennet on his leadership alone disqualifies his claims at interference in potential peace settlements.

    20. Phil says:

      So Trump is up 3 over Biden in the latest ABC/Washington Post poll?

      That clinches it. Trump will be prosecuted to the max and will be sent to prison by NY or Fulton County prosecutors. Timeline looks to be around spring or summer of 24.

      Book it.

    21. Bitterlaw says:

      Ukrainians did not die for “agendas.” They died as victims of Putin’s vicious war.

    22. Tina says:

      The house needs to investigate, Biden’s Beotch should also demand an investigation. The pos won’t.

      The dod got caught lying for the incompetence of the administration.

      Milley needs to be fired.

      First Words

      Replying to
      They tried to cover for Biden’s dereliction of duty by lying Trump did the same thing, but now that’s been totally debunked and they’ve all shut up. Everyone knows Trump would have shot that spy balloon down in the Bering Sea and given notice to Xi. Biden’s a sold-out coward.

    23. Phil says:

      To be fair, it was Trump that nominated Milley as Chairman of the joint chiefs.

      I like Trump but he had a thing for nominating the most disloyal people around him. He did it time and time again.

    24. Tina says:

      Is this true?

      Joe Biden offered Vladimir Putin 20 percent of Ukraine to end war: report

    25. Tina says:

      True, Phil. Bur the bad appointments were under max Russian hoax. The gop-e were not going to confirm others.

      With that said, if Milley knew about the spy ballots and did not inform others, he needs to go.

      This needs to be investigated.

      But notice how fast Biden’s Beotch runs away from asking for an investigation.

    26. Tina says:

      Afghanistan failure happened under Milley.

      The guy that phuqed up the withdrawal and outsourced it to the Taliban may have also allowed Ccp spy ballots in the country.

      This is treason.

      California quietly abandons COVID-19 vaccine mandate for school kids

      Great leadership by gubbernor Newsom!

      After Newsom mentored DeSanctimonius and convinced him to STOP forcing vax on FL school kids, he also FINALLY implements it in CA too.

      Clearly, Newsom wanted to address FL 1st because that is the job of other gubbernors – to run ads in and to stick their noses in the businesses of other states.

      Good collaboration between states. Good to see politicians working together.

      Too bad they’re from different parties. A Newsom/DeSanctimonius ticket would be formidable.

    29. Tgca says:


      IF, and it’s a BIG IF, the US and Great Britain influenced Ukraine and Russia to walk away from any potential peace talks, then they are responsible for interfering even if they don’t cause deaths by their own hand because that means the war got dragged out.

      It’s irresponsible for nations to instigate or prolong wars for their own agenda. Countries have done this in the past, including the US. Think WW1.

      So again, IF potential peace discussions were nixed because of interference, that is wrong.

      It is not up to the US and Great Britain to decide what peace settlements should or should not include if they’re not invited to the table.

    30. Cash Cow TM says:

      “…Trump but he had a thing for nominating the most disloyal people around him. He did it time and time again.”

      Amen, Phil.

      Not just disloyal, but not good picks.

      And his picking Sen. Jeff Sessions to be AG turned out to be a horrible decision in lots of ways down the road and helped R. lose/D gain majority in Senate.

      And he ends up firing Sessions in a few months anyway…

    31. Bitterlaw says:

      24. Only 20%? Tgca would have offered 25% and gone to 30%.

    32. Tgca says:


      You may have a point PityLaw but it’s still waaaay less than the 100% of Iraq that the US tried to take over in its ILLEGAL invasion so it could divvy up contracts amongst Bush cronies in 2003 that you supported.

      I guess the millions displaced, 4,000+ lost American lives, and hundreds of thousands of deaths of innocent Iraqi civilians is ok when America invades countries.

      Glad to know how your moral compass works.

    33. Bitterlaw says:


      Maybe you can let us know when the UN, UK, France, Germany and Israel approved Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

    34. Tgca says:

      The UN, France, and Germany were against the US invasion of Iraq.

      The UN to this day deems it an illegal invasion.

      The US refused to bring it to the UN Security Council because it could not get more than 3 of 15 countries to support it so the US went it alone with Great Britain and Australia which sent a whopping 200 military personnel.

      Over 95% of world countries were against it.

      They were proven right! The US did EXACTLY what Russia did in Ukraine, invaded a country on false pretense because its leader wanted to expand its interests there but the US failed miserably and has NEVER recovered from that debacle, and is still distrusted in the Middle East.

      If the US was a small chithole country it would have been tried for war crimes but only got away with it because of its international influence.

      4,000+ American soldiers paid with their lives so the Bush/Cheney clan could enrich themselves.

    35. Bitterlaw says:

      The UN and the countries I named all believed Iraq had WMDs.

      What else are they talking about at Code Pink and DailyKos?

    36. gameboy says:


      Why stop at Bush/Cheney? While that team lead the charge just about every other corrupt Washington politician participated in the “get rich quick” scheme.

    37. Sheeple,Jr. says:

      Please meet the February IBD/TIPP Poll. In this poll, Biden’s approval is 46% and his disapproval 44%. Based on the data in the article among Political Groups the PID is D+15. Yes, you heard me:
      45%(D), 30%(R) and 25%(I)
      CLOWN POLL!!!

    38. Pitchaboy says:

      IBD/TIPP is one of the most accurate polls and nailed 2020. Believe they did great 2016 as well.

    39. Pitchaboy says:

      Stock market and price of oil tracks his approval better than anything. If you have a decent market and reasonable oil price, he will be re-elected.

    40. Tina says:

      Yeah price od oil is alarming.

      We are over $4.00 a gallon.

      It got as low as $3.45.

      Up 60 cents since December.

    41. Tina says:

      Sarah huckleberry too,give the SOTU response.

      This is a good choice.

      McCarthy is still doing very well.

      Biden’s beotch is still doing poorly.

    42. Sheeple,Jr. says:

      Pitchaboy #38
      Hope you are doing well.
      TIPP is accurate when it does head-to- head polling.
      When it comes to Presidential approval/disapproval, its polling is far from that.
      In its poll released today, unless you believe that Democrats make-up almost 50% of the electorate, this poll is seriously off. That’s a fact!

    43. NYCmike says:

      “If you have a decent market and reasonable oil price, he will be re-elected.”

      -Most likely true.

      Is it wrong to hope for a spike in oil prices?

      I would rather that happen instead of a down market.

      I am able to pass on fuel costs…….YES, OK, total selfishness on my part……Sue-Z-Q me!

    44. Pitchaboy says:

      In a poll where 45% are D his approval is 46%. The most likely explanation is a significant number of I are R leaning I.

    45. Tgca says:


      Believing they had weapons and agreeing to invade a country are two very different things.

      In a very simplistic analogy, do police get to shoot you just because they think you might have a weapon and may use it even if they have no evidence of it?

      One of the reasons those countries you named believed there were WMD were because of flawed or fraudulent US intelligence shared with them by the US in the 1st place, as well as past actions by Iraq, some which occurred in the 1980s when the US funded Iraq and looked the other way to those actions because they shared a common enemy, Iran.

      If you recall, Hans Blix rebutted the US intelligence and interpretations quite reasonably. His bottom line view was the US was jumping to conclusions and had NO REAL evidence, and to date the inspectors found NO evidence.

      Hans Blix ended up being correct. The US and Great Britain were horribly WRONG!

      Germany and France agreed with Hans Blix that continued inspections were the most prudent way to go but the war-mongering politicians of US and Great Britain would have none of it. They wanted their war and ILLEGALLY invaded a country and destroyed their credibility and still haven’t recovered from it to this day.

      …and in the process, 4,000+ American troops and hundreds of thousands of innocent Iraqi civilians died for NOTHING, except for the attempt of Bush/Cheney to load their pockets and to this day STILL refuse to acknowledge their gross negligence because of their pride and lies.

      At least Colin Powell tried to come clean on it before he passed away because he knew it was all BS.

      Shame on the US for committing war crimes and mass atrocities without sufficient evidence. Oops! Doesn’t cover it.

    46. Tgca says:

      Your homophobic slurs show you can’t handle the truth and must resort to name-calling. You sound like an angry bigot because someone challenged your view. Would you also make disparaging bigoted remarks to Colin Powell who came clean on it?

      The vast majority of the world and even most in US believe the Iraq war was not justified (down from an supermajority support at one point). Are they all leftist gays too?

      You’d be whistling a different tune if one of those fallen 4,000 Americans was a loved one in your family, as would be your right NOW that we know the ILLEGAL invasion was built on manufactured intelligence and lies.

      Seems like you suffer from the same pride as Bush/Cheney and degrade the memory of fallen US troops by keeping up lies.

    47. Sheeple,Jr. says:

      #44- Pichaboy
      With Indies in the TIPP poll, Biden’s approval/disapproval is 28/58 and with Republicans 10/84; with Democrats, 81/13.
      The poll is an Adults poll.

      BREAKING: General Mattis Says He “HAD NO KNOWLEDGE OF CCP BALLOON” Flying Over US During His Watch as Secretary of Defense under Trump – ANOTHER LIE EXPOSED!

    50. jason says:

      Good news. Despite all the efforts of the Putin Brigades, Americans still support Ukraine.

      And 65% support Ukraine reclaiming its territory “even if it means a prolonged conflict”

    51. jason says:

      Tgca’s attempt to reinvent history in Iraq is hilarious.

      What a pack of lies.

      EVERYTHING in post 46 is a lie.

      Hans Blix? LOL

    52. jason says:

      Germany and France agreed with Hans Blix that continued inspections were the most prudent way to go”


      Hans Blix was made a fool of by Saddam Hussein and Saddam was not allowing the inspectors access.

      Several ultimatums were given and Saddam ignored all of them.

      Had he allowed unfettered access to the inspectors there would have been no war. Had he resigned there would have been no war.

      But Bush and Blair were right, you couldn’t trust in the sanity of Saddam Hussein.

      The war was completely justified and LEGAL!

    53. jason says:

      It is possible that Saddam denied access because he didn’t want it be known that he didn’t have stockpiles of WMD. He wanted to keep that as a threat to his enemies and Israel.

      But only an idiot would have taken the chance on that theory.

      Also remember Hans Blix was a UN inspector. He had no responsibility like GWB and Blair of protecting the world against Saddam Hussein.

      My view of Hans Blix was always that he was a manipulated moron. Others can disagree.

      Well, the Washington Post and NYT now have back to back articles trashing Kamala Harris.

      The leftist elites who run the Democratic Party have put the word out that it’s time to cut Kamala loose. Word is out. She’s just too much of a liability and an anchor to the ticket in 2024. She has to go….for the sake of the cause. Always for the cause.

      Bye, Kamala.

    58. Cash Cow TM says:

      Sometime last week, this WV county school system (Berkeley County, 2nd largest in WV w/ @19,000+ students) had its computers hacked and the hackers are supposedly wanting a ransom paid to allow county to get its info back.

      The county school system closed schools today and is trying to reopen partially on Tuesday and Wed.

      The students cannot just use their textbooks–as all of the textbooks have been replaced by Chrome books that were issued to all the students ipads. And of course the blackboards have been replaced by computerized Smartboards.

      The hackers even have control of the bells used to change classes.

      Plus last Friday a lot of bus drivers staged a ‘sick out’ over the (to them, unjust) firing of a bus driver so many bus routes were cancelled Friday.

      So glad I am not a teacher today.

    60. Tgca says:

      As usual, Jester Jadon and PityLaw will defend GWB lies that cost 4,000+ Americans their lives. They side with lying American politicians and dishonor dead American soldiers with their refusal to see what the rest of the world knows.

      The vast majority of the world, 95%, disagreed with the US ILLEGALLY invading Iraq.

      Yes, Hans Blix was getting the run around by Iraq but in the end, he was correct. There was no evidence of WMD and US intelligence lied and manipulated evidence as a pretense to go to war, taking advantage of the pain and emotion the country was suffering after 9/11.

      I trust Colin Powell on this who admitted they misled with evidence. He also claimed GWB had already made up his mind before going to the UN, that was just for show, and most damagingly, he stated Cheney’s office prepared the report they gave to the UN and GWB asked him to present the findings because he had the most credibility. He later found out they lied to him on vetting the evidence.

      We know GWB/Cheney lied and this was all about trying to democratize the Middle East and giving the US beneficial contracts.

      It was an utter failure and the US is scorned to this day around the world and not trusted on intelligence.

      Blair became a pariah and never recovered from his role in the lies either.

    61. Bitterlaw says:

      Tgca to adopt these talking points in 3…2…1…

    62. Bitterlaw says:

      Maybe Tgca can make some posts.

    63. Tgca says:

      Hey PityLaw:

      You still upset more American soldiers did not lose their lives to democratize the Middle East so Bush/Cheney and friends could profit?

      You still blaming those soldiers for the enormous US failure in Iraq?

    64. Bitterlaw says:

      I never blamed the soldiers. They are heroes.

      Do you still cry over the death of Saddam?

    65. Tgca says:



      Sure you think they’re hero’s. We believe you.

      Just like we believe you on NOT being woke or NEVER saying there’s a good and bad Philly.

      I NEVER supported Saddam. You blindly supported him because Reagan supported/funded him in the 80s.

    66. Bitterlaw says:

      19 years and thousands of my posts supporting military personn prove you are a liar and moron. Not a good combination for you.

      Remember when you said soldiers were no different than police and firefighters or anybody else who served their community? I do. You also trashed McCain’s service.

      I am not woke. Jason invented the terms Good and Bad Philadelphia.

    67. NYCmike says:


      I would like to Thank You in advance for watching Biden’s SOTU address tomorrow.

    68. Tgca says:


      Police are killed everyday protecting Americans. Firemen die routinely saving American lives and property.

      They are the 1st line of defense to saving lives and protecting the public. They have one of the most dangerous jobs one can have and suffer from high risks of injury, violence, death, suicide, divorce, stress, illness, mental health issues, etc.

      Clearly you lack respect for these people that serve and protect Americans daily when you can’t even come close to competing with the good deeds and service they offer America.

      Hopefully, you’ll never need them to protect your family or property since you probably could not protect them yourself.

      …and maybe you want to tell the families of the 340+ firemen and 70+ police that died on 9/11, and hundreds that died thereafter from 9/11 illnesses, while responding to a terrorist attack that they are less heroic and do not serve their country or communities like soldiers do.

      Evidently you are anti-police now too because only a complete idiot and moron would minimize the value and services police and firemen provide America.

      Doesn’t surprise me because of your wokeness that you have more in common with the woke anti-law enforcement crowd in the good and bad parts of Philly.

    69. Bitterlaw says:

      Tgca does not know the meaning of the word “clearly.” Nobody at HHR is more pro-police than me. I have never disparaged their bravery or service. I also respect the bravery and service of firefighters and all first responders. Whenever the sad little clown is losing an argument, he just lies and pretends he is having a different argument. Don’t forget he also disparaged Jason’s military service.

      “British intelligence believes it is unlikely that Russia can build up the forces needed to substantially affect the outcome of the war within the coming weeks.

      Details: The intelligence agency considers it highly likely that Russia has been attempting to re-start major offensive operations in Ukraine since early January 2023. Its operational goal is almost certainly to capture the remaining Ukrainian-held parts of Donetsk Oblast.

      However, Russian forces have only managed to gain several hundred metres of territory per week. This is almost certainly because Russia now lacks the munitions and manoeuvre units required for successful offensives.”

    75. Tgca says:

      I’m not losing an argument. PityLaw is the one deflecting because I pointed out his IDIOCY that police don’t protect and serve Americans as soldiers do.

      I showed the STOOPIDITY of his argument with the massive deaths of police and firemen on 9/11 in a terrorist attack that proved him wrong.

      Police and firemen die routinely protecting and servicing Americans. To think they are lesser than soldiers, who by the way, over 90% are never deployed in a combat or life-threatening situations, is insulting and degrading to them, especially to the memory of those that died in the line of duty.

      Many people protect and serve America in a variety of ways that put their lives on the line and we don’t need some woke supporting poster who has NEVER served in a similar capacity minimizing their contributions and loss of life in the line of duty.

      Again, go tell those families their loved ones on 9/11 did not serve Americans. Watch the reaction you get.

      Go back and read your post in 69. Why are you questioning how police and firemen protect and serve opposed to service men in the 1st place? Why did you even bring it up?

    76. Tgca says:

      Perhaps PityLaw should go Google the “protect and serve” oath officers take.

      …or is he suggesting they remove the oath abd the protect and serve emblem from their vehicles and buildings because they don’t protect and serve Americans.

      …and for the record, most here decided to boycott woke sports during 2020 and 2021 because of their woke and anti-police antics but PityLaw REFUSED so he made a conscious choice to support wokeism whether he agrees or not.

      It’s like going to a Springsteen concert where he proselytizes on lefty views and demeaning conservatives. You contribute to and help provide him a platform to do that by your attendance. If people boycott, they have a diminished or no platform to spread wokeism.

      Same with watching woke sports. It contributed to and empowered them in their messaging. If you turn it off, they have less empowerment.

    77. Bitterlaw says:

      Curious…how many HHR posters do volunteer work?

    79. Tgca says:

      Jester Jadon can challenge others on supporting dictators when he stands up against China.

      He still refuses to acknowledge China has concentration camps with about a million Uyghurs.

      If only we do more trade with China, those Uyghurs will be freed.

      The concentration camps in China are on a scale of those in certain countries during WW2 but Jester Jadon sees no problem with that.

      China, probably the biggest violator or human rights and slaughtering people than any other country today….but LETS DO MORE TRADE.

    80. Bitterlaw says:

      Walt- You are doing great and necessary work. Thank you.

    82. Tgca says:

      I trash McCain not because of his military service but because of his actions after serving in the military.

      Same with Jester Jadon.

      Serving in the military does not make you a good citizen. I provided statistics in the past that show military personnel have a higher rate of criminal activity than the general public.

      Many ex-military people are violent criminal thugs.

      One does NOT get a pass simply because they served. If that is the same, you need to respect John Kerry, a military hero, and excuse his behavior over the years.

      Again, STOOPID reasoning by you up there with your idiotic beliefs on police service, depression, and flat earth theory.

      Gawd! Are you really this clueless? Now wonder you can’t keep a job and stuck as associate lawyer, never making partner.

    93. jason says:

      Not everyone is as stoic as Bitter.

      “Republican Rep. Mary Miller of Illinois plans to boycott President Biden’s State of the Union speech on Tuesday over the commander in chief’s track record of lying.

      “I will not be attending. I do not plan to show up to and listen to him continue to lie,” she told Breitbart, noting his “entire presidency has been filled with lie after lie.”

    94. Bitterlaw says:

      I don’t rely on others to tweet what somebody says when I can listen to the speaker myself.

    95. Tgca says:


      More deflection from PityLaw as he grasps at everything to walk back his minimizing the public service of protecting and serving Americans that police and firemen do.

      Tell us again why you think those hundreds of police and firemen that died on 9/11 were NOT protecting and serving Americans?

      Yes or no. Do police and firemen protect and serve Americans? Go on the record with your view.

      You brought it up. Not me. I’m just trying to understand why in post 69 you minimize contributions of police and firemen who protect and serve Americans.

    96. Bitterlaw says:

      As I have said in many posts over the last 19 years, police and firefighters protect and serve Americans.

    97. Tgca says:


      Well thank you for your clarification then.

      So I guess I don’t understand why you brought it up in 69 as an issue in comparing them to soldiers but if you’re willing to accept they protect and serve which means they risk their lives for Americans then I’m fine and we can go back to being BFF. *HUG*

      As noted, many Americans serve their country in various ways and some with much more risk than others. Active CIA spies are example of people who are more likely to die on the job than a soldier not deployed in active combat.

    98. Tgca says:


      Don’t be jinxing my Endlers. I have tons of them now. Like 50. All juveniles except for 4 adult females. They have survived and thrived. I had to move the 4 adult males into a separate tank to give the ladies a break.

    103. Tgca says:


      There is nothing wrong with joining the military to get education and benefits. Where I grew up, that’s why most joined in the 1st place, not out of a sense of duty.

      Young men, especially those with troubled backgrounds, poverty, mediocre or not so good grades were often pushed to the military as an alternative.

      There is a long-held belief the military takes boys and makes them men of character.

      I recall hearing one AA father opine he’d rather his boy go to the military and learn discipline, respect and become a man than stay on the streets in the ghetto where we know pressures often push kids into a life of crime or make them victims of crime.

      So, there is no shame in admitting young kids go into the military as an alternative to developing a career or skills than kidding ourselves most join the military out of a sense of pride and duty to their country. That’s hogwash.

    104. Bitterlaw says:

      The trashing of Jason’s military service continues…

    105. Tgca says:


      I don’t fault Jadon for joining the military simply as an escape from eating mountain rodents and snacking on bugs after he heard in America people ate beef and bacon daily.

      He worked hard peeling onions and potatoes and mopping up the latrine and that humbled him and made him into the man of character he is today that can command the great respect and following he has at HHR.

      I do not minimize his service to America one bit. Someone had to get kitchen duty and clean up the chit. More power to him for enthusiastically embracing his assignments.

      His perseverance paid off! He now eats unhealthy, greasy, salty pork daily and despite his advance cardiovascular disease with 800+ cholesterol, he is happier then when he was a street urchin living in a hut eating rodents and bugs.

      Good for him!

      The last two 40-something presidents, JFK and Clinton, in my opinion lacked experience to handle certain issues even though they were popular with certain groups.

      I’ve also seen it in Corporate America. Often times younger execs in their 30s and early 40s still have a bit of that immaturity in them and struggle to handle situations a more seasoned leader can.

      The state controlled media loved Biden’s speech. What a surprise.

      “Alexander Nazaryan·Senior White House Correspondent

      WASHINGTON — President Biden was chatting with members of Congress after his State of the Union address when a booming voice rose above the chamber’s cacophony: “Mr. President, that was awesome!”

      The voice belonged to Rep. Jamaal Bowman, D-N.Y., a progressive Democrat and not an especially close Biden ally. But the sentiment was reflective of how many in the party felt about Biden’s message and delivery on Tuesday night.

      Feisty, combative and energetic, Biden seemed to relish in drawing a contrast with a Republican Party he treated at times with gentle but needling condescension. “Lots of luck in your senior year,” he told GOP members seeking to repeal last year’s Inflation Reduction Act.

      Partisan differences aside, Biden’s paeans to American exceptionalism could have been borrowed from Ronald Reagan. Heading into the evening, Biden was facing a concerted opposition from his own party on the question of whether he should seek a second term, just as Reagan did in 1984.

      While he has not yet announced that he will seek reelection, Tuesday night will almost certainly serve to bolster Biden’s conviction that the 2024 election is too important to hand off to someone else.”

      The article went on to decry the “lack of civility”. No it didn’t mention Nancy Pelosi tearing up Trump’s speech.

    178. jason says:

      “Labor Secretary Marty Walsh is the designated survivor for President Biden’s State of the Union address, according to a White House official.

      Walsh as Labor secretary is the 11th in the presidential line of succession. Walsh is expected to step down from his job in the Biden administration to take over as head of the National Hockey League Players’ Association, a source familiar with the matter confirmed to The Hill earlier on Tuesday. He will be the first Senate-confirmed Cabinet official in the line of succession to leave the White House since Biden took office.”

      “A key ally of Russia’s President Vladimir Putin said he wants to invade Poland after Russia takes over Ukraine.

      Ramzan Kadyrov, the Kremlin-appointed leader of Chechnya, said on Monday that Poland is in his sights as the next country that Russia could “denazify and demilitarize” — the excuse Russia gave in justifying its invasion of Ukraine.

      “What if, after the successful completion of the NMD, Russia begins to denazify and demilitarize the next country? After all, after Ukraine, Poland is on the map! I will not hide that I personally have such an intention,” Kadyrov said.

      “I have repeatedly stated that the fight against Satanism should continue throughout Europe and, first of all, on the territory of Poland,” he added.

      The United States on Tuesday announced its approval of a $10 billion sale of 18 Himars precision rocket launchers plus ammunition and other equipment to Poland, a NATO ally that borders conflict-hit Ukraine.

      “The proposed sale will improve Poland’s military goals of updating capability while further enhancing interoperability with the United States and other allies,” the Defense Security Cooperation Agency said in a statement.

      “Poland intends to use these defense articles and services to modernize its armed forces and expand its capability to strengthen its homeland defense and deter regional threats,” it added.

      Himars launchers have played a key role in Ukraine’s fight against Moscow’s invasion, allowing Kyiv’s forces to carry out precision strikes on supply dumps and other Russian positions.”

      Who won? South Korea is strong economic power and independent democracy. North Korea is an economic disaster under the control of tyrants for decades. It can launch missiles but has trouble feeding its soldiers.

      South Korea, America, and the nations that supported South Korea won.

      “Here’s the real State of the Union. Over the past two years under Biden, millions and millions of illegal aliens from 160 different countries have stormed across our Southern border. Drug cartels are now raking in billions of dollars from smuggling poison to kill our people and to kill our children. Savage killers, rapists and violent criminals are being released from jail to continue their crime wave and under Biden the murder rate has reached the highest in the history of our country.Biden and the radical Democrats have wasted trillions of dollars and caused the worst inflation in half a century. Real wages are down 21 months in a row. Gas prices have soared and are now going up much higher than even before and the typical American family is paying $2,200 in increased energy and food costs each year.Joe Biden’s weaponized Justice Department, and I’m a victim of it, is persecuting his political opponents. His administration is waging war on free speech. They’re trying to indoctrinate and mutilate our children. He’s leading us to the brink of World War III. And on top of all of that, he’s the most corrupt president in American history, and it’s not even close. But the good news is we are going to reverse every single crisis, calamity and disaster that Joe Biden has created. I am running for President to end the destruction of our country and to complete the unfinished business of Making America Great Again. We will make our country better than ever before, and we will always put America First. Thank you.

    195. Gordon Allen says:

      Bitter. The point was wars can end with each side claiming victory.
      North Korea and China claim they won by defeating the US led attempt at overrunning NKorea and invading China. WE Claim the successful defense of S Korea’s sovereignty.
      Ditto for the Wat of 1812,with both claiming victory; Britain defeating the US invasion of Canada,and us defeating the British invasion of the US.
      Ukraine presents a definitional issue. You feel victory is a return to the status quo of 2/23/22),whereas Zelensky defines it as returning to the status quo of 2013.
      Other than Zelensky’s being unattainable, a war is difficult when it’s goal is not defined.
      Biden seems to be with your definition, which absolutely is not that of Zelensky.
      Just trying to make that observation.

      Wow! Biden has turned the country around.

      Texas has enormous 2023 budget surplus – $33B. Of course you have to consider this per capita, so for Texas, it’s like $1,100 per resident.

      Other states have larger per capita surpluses but so far Texas is the largest I found in large states.

      Florida is also up there but not the top at $23B or around $1,000 per capita.

      Alaska looks highest I’ve seen so far with $1.9B or $2,500 per capita.

      Also, 33 states are cutting taxes in 2023.

      I’m still analyzing and will share for a fee.

      I would prefer he resign his seat under the circumstances but he won’t so that’s his choice and the voters can decide his fate in the next election.

      This is dangerous!

      What DeSanctimonius and Floreedah GOP is doing against Disney is no different than what leftist Dems are doing or the DOJ targeting those that disagree with them.

      A few points to consider:

      1st, there is over $1B in debt a new jurisdiction will have to take in because local communities want nothing to do with absorbing the costs.

      2nd, the new community leaders are barred from being associated with Disney. That means all the expertise about running an industry-specific district will now be handle by non-industry new hires who lack industry experience. That is a major economic and safety issue.

      3rd, does anyone believe elected bureaucrats are going to do better at running an area run well by a company for 50 years?

      This proposed bill is pure pettiness and not in the best interest of Floridians either financially or for safety reasons.

      I have seen such nonsense happen in local juridictions across the US, where non-experienced bureaucrats failed in providing safe and adequate services to the detriment of residents. Think issues we’ve seen with safety of municipal water and distribution systems as examples.

      This really is no surprise based on todays story by Pulizer Prize winning US investigative journalist Seymour Hersh the US and Norway worked together on blowing up the Nord Stream pipelines. Norway is a US vassal and competitor of Russia in natural gas sales to Europe.This has several major implications:

      Jens Stoltenberg leads NATO and was Prime Minister of Norway for 8 years. There can be no doubt that he knew in advance about the pipeline attack, a betrayal of NATO members that had no interest in the pipeline destruction and its long term impact on their countries.

      Norway made a big mistake by participating in a US terror act against EU and Russian gas infrastructure. Norway itself relies on gas exports for its economy and Norways gas infrastructure is now going to be a target for Russian retribution.

      President Biden delivered a win to Putin by committing this act of terrorism in breach of international law and then accusing Russia of self-sabotage. Biden is exposed as a liar and terrorist in the eyes of unbiased observers.

      German Scholz is the big loser in this revelation. Who completely changed policy regarding Intervention that the majority of German leaders have held since the end of WW 2. The support of his Govt crumbles if he doesn’t respond in a strong way to the US attack against German interests. This nullified what political capital he had in involving Germany support in the war.

      Mike Lee “ I’m troubled that I can’t immediately rule out the suggestion that the U.S. blew up Nord Stream. I checked with a bunch of Senate colleagues. Among those I’ve asked, none were ever briefed on this. If it turns out to be true, we’ve got a huge problem.”

      Hersh isn’t going to risk his reputation on a story like this and Lee knows it.

    258. JeffP says:

      262 SDC I am pretty confident that if Trump gets the Bernie Sanders treatment DeSantis will win the nomination.

      DeSantis doesn’t have the charisma Trump has but his replies thus far to Trumps attacks have been excellent. Being a very popular and successful Governor with the all American family with national credibility and military service would be a daunting task for Trump. His attacks won’t have the same impact as 2016 against grifter Governors and Senators with no administrative governing record.

      Did, did, did, did you hear the falling bombs?
      Did, did, did, did you ever wonder
      Why we had to run for shelter
      When the promise of a brave new world
      Unfurled beneath a clear blue sky?

      Did, did, did, did you see the frightened ones?

      I see JeffP the Putin lapdog has a new excuse on why Ukraine should surrender … the Nord Stream pipeline.

      JeffP thinks it is “terrorism”, but he is fine with Putin terrorizing millions of Ukrainian civilians by bombing, displacing, exiling, torturing and raping that.

      No problem there.

      Not Germany or any other country will stop supporting Ukraine because of the Nord Stream pipeline.

    265. jason says:

      I see NYC the Putin stooge is up late to shill for his dear leader.

    266. JeffP says:

      The tanks will not be arrive any time soon before the coming offensive. They are sending shi* tanks too.

      Regarding Fighter jets that would bring a hot war to Germany for sure maybe Poland. Bombing a tank plant in Dresden would get their attention and Germans do not want a hot war on their turf. Trust me. If you live on the east coast you might want figure out a nuke bomb shelter and buy some Iodine pills. I should be safe where I live.

      BTW…Trumps assessment is spot on.

      JeffP, what are tripping on?

    268. JeffP says:

      270 your clueless on how euros think. I go to Europe three times a year and know the cultures. They do not like what their leaders are doing in regards to Ukraine. The war sanctions and Nord Stream is a big deal for the everyday citizen.

    269. Paul says:

      I imagine many of them like what their leaders are doing. The leaders are not completely selfless-doing what is right even if it causes them to lose power.

    270. Paul says:

    273. JeffP says:

      Russia will not invade any NATO country like Poland that is ridiculous and you don’t understand the geo politics involved. Russia doesn’t want a war with the west. But the west wants a war using Ukraine. It’s really not difficult to understand.

    274. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      279. If Russia did not want a war, it should not have invaded Ukraine. The Ukrainians are the ones who fought back and prevented Putin from taking Kyiv. What is it going to take to get Russia to realize they have no business being in Ukraine?

    275. Tgca says:

      264 Jeffie

      I disagree.

      Trump will list all his accomplishments as POTUS.

      He will remind everyone he was right on everything he said would happen, and how Russia was not a problem under him.

      He will remind people of the instability around the world with China, Iran, North Korea, Russia, etc and how he handled them as DeSanctimonius won’t be able to contrast a single foreign policy achievement.

      DeSanctimonius will talk of his accomplishments in a state in which he inherited an excellent economy from Scott. His major accomplishments will be:

      Don’t Say Gay bill
      Attack Disney
      Provide $33 sales tax credit on purchasing gas stoves for 8% of the Floreedah population of which probably less than 1% or more will take advantage of, if even that. People don’t go out and buy $600+ stoves to save $33.

      Comparing experience and accomplishments between the two is like comparing the radiance of the sun to a flashlight, with DeSantimonius being the flashlight.

      I agree that Russia does not want a war with the west or NATO.

      I think Pootin invaded Ukraine because he saw weakness in the US and he is just pounding his chest and bullying, as dictators do.

      Russia knows they can’t win a conventional war against NATO and their economy would be destroyed.

      They are simply paranoid bullies like other dictators.

      It was a desperate ploy to take advantage of unrest in Ukraine due to an ongoing civil war with certain areas.

      Neighboring countries to Russia are overreacting. It’s like overreacting if there is a murder in your neighborhood that you will be murdered next. You have to look at context of the situation and not just the action itself.

    278. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      279 JeffP, are you forgetting some recent history?

      After making an agreement with Hitler, Russia invaded and occupied Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and eastern Poland. Russia attempted to occupy Finland, but Finnish resistance was too strong — and they entered into a peace treaty which gave Russia about 10% of Finland.

      After WW2, Russia reoccupied these countries (except Finland) and occupied a lot of other Eastern European countries,creating puppet governments. This situation ended with the collapse of the Soviet Union around 1990.

      Now Putin is seeking, in effect, to recreate the Soviet Union. If he succeeds in Ukraine, he will move on to his next targets

    279. JeffP says:

      284 Comparing Russias invasion of Ukraine to Hitlers agreements is all I need to know. The Russia Nationalists of today have a completely different perspective and motive than post WW2 Soviet Communists.

    280. Sheeple,Jr. says:

      jason & Bitter:
      He’s not going to make it for very long. No surprise.

      “U.S. Sen. John Fetterman, the Pennsylvania Democrat who suffered a stroke during his campaign last year, was hospitalized Wednesday night after feeling lightheaded, his office says.”

      Who will the Governor appoint to replace him? His wife? In the next election cycle, the GOP can, in theory, grab two Senate seats in PA!

    281. JeffP says:

      284 One major example is that Russia Nationalism today is they completely reject the WEF global agenda of CRT, global warming cult, transgender craziness, etc…they are serious when they refer to these people as Satanists.

    282. JeffP says:

      280 I don’t agree with Putin aggression to invade Ukraine. You ask what is going to take? Not completely sure but there is a lot of generational and religious history involved in the Russian Nationalist perspective. This isn’t just Putin. It’s a nationalist movement similar to Brexit, Trump, Italy now. They abhor the direction the west is taking on CRT, transgender, global warming cult, etc…

    283. Bitterlaw says:

      Fetterman looked tired and bored during SOTU. I don’t think Shapiro would appoint Fetterman’s wife. It is more likely he would appoint a black woman from Western PA (there must be some) or Philadelphia.

    284. Phil says:

      The plan all along was to replace Fetterman. Replace one commie with another. All for the cause.

    285. jason says:


      So the “Russian nationalists” invade the sovereign country of Ukraine because they are against CRT?

      I tell you, the excuses JeffP comes up with to justify his idolatry of Putin and the invasion of Ukraine are becoming more and more hilarious.

      Nobody gives a crap what the “Russian nationalists” want. They are free to air their concerns INSIDE Russia.

      But in any case, that is all hogwash. This is about recreating a Greater Russia, a new Soviet Union.

      SDC puts in a nutsh-ll:

      “Now Putin is seeking, in effect, to recreate the Soviet Union. If he succeeds in Ukraine, he will move on to his next targets”

      The justifications on why this is ok are many. They are all trash. “Russian nationalism”? Zzzzz.

    286. jason says:

      Shapiro will try to appoint someone who can win an election.

      I don’t think it will be a black woman. I think it will be someone like Lamb.

    287. jason says:

      I predicted this. Only Tgca would eat phony baloney and associated chemically laden artificial “meats”.

      If vegetarians don’t like meat, why are they so anxious to eat fake meat has always been my question.

      “Not so long ago, alternative protein products like Beyond Meat and Impossible Burger promised to consign conventional beef, pork and chicken to the culinary dark ages. The companies’ stock prices soared, as did their market share. But consumers lost their appetite for fake meat in 2022, with the industry posting significant declines here in the US.

      Divorcing Americans from their carnivorous habits has always been an uphill battle. For nearly two centuries, a colorful cast of eccentrics and entrepreneurs have pushed alternatives to meat only to see the real thing regain its place of pride on the nation’s tables. Until fake meat is indistinguishable from the real thing — and poses no ethical dilemmas — we’re unlikely to see a change.

      [cue: sad trombone]

      Even what are considered the “best,” most accessible brands are having a really hard time in the marketplace right now, and it’s no wonder.

      Customers and investors alike are sticking a fork in fake meat.

      …But now, the sector’s overall fortunes appear to be waning, with prominent industry names facing headwinds from a slowing economy, and a loss of buzz.

      • Impossible Foods plans to lay off roughly 20% of its workforce, per a Bloomberg report. However, the company tells Axios that it saw record growth last year.

      • Impossible’s primary competitor, Beyond Meat, also cut roughly 20% of its workers, and lost several executives, amid its own stock slump.

      • Beyond Meat’s sales fell more than 22% in the third quarter of 2022 compared to 2021. In an Q3 earnings call, company executives blamed inflation for consumers’ souring tastes on pricier plant-based meats.

      • Beyond Meat’s stock is down roughly 67% compared to a year ago.”

      I haven’t seen any ads for fake burgers in months.

    289. jason says:

      Note that Putin propagandists like JeffP always start their posts with “I am against the invasion” but then proceed on all the “justifications” for the invasion.

      There is no justification. Nada. Zilch. Zero.

    290. jason says:

      And btw Putin is a KGB thug. So let’s not make “Russian Nationalism” any kind of buffer against the WEF agenda. Putin is a despotic dictator that allows no dissension and is the poster child for the “Uniparty”. There is nothing “positive” about Russian Nationalism.

      The Biden and EU/WEF’s green fantasies will destroy the energy supply of the West as China, Russia, India, and others march forward with fossil fuels & nuclear power. EU’s economy & national security have also been harmed by green/woke cult to control your life. How about banning gas stoves?

      Anyone else notice the alternative banking and international financial system being setup including China and Russia?

      Bitter, we have reason #375 by the Putin stooge on why Ukraine should surrender.

    302. Tgca says:

      303 Pitch

      DeSanctimonius has had the benefit of a very friendly near super-majority legislature and a friendly court system so he gets little pushback.

      That is not what he would face on the national level and I bet it would bring out more defensiveness in him then we already routinely see here in Floreedah.

      He is already despised by the MSM and left because of the Don’t Say Gay bill and CRT push so if he were the candidate he will find a press as equally adversarial as Trump did. It will be 24/7 attacks, and because like Trump, he is cocky, thin-skinned, and defensive, I think he would find it challenging making the transition from getting things handed to him.

      But his biggest problem 1st is trying to explain why he would be a better choice than a successful president like Trump when he’s NEVER had any comparable accomplishments. and who 75% of the party thinks was cheated out of a 2nd term.

      It’s like comparing a flashlight to the sun. DeSanctimonius looks small and inconsequential compared to Trump in accomplishments.

      Arguing personality or age ain’t gonna do it. Most Americans would gladly have Trump back now over Biden.

    303. jason says:

      Jason I am honored that you attack me as some sort of Putin loving Russia”

      It’s not an attack, just a statement of fact.

      100% of your posts on this issue are either to advocate for Ukraine’s surrender or to somehow justify Putin’s invasion, or both.

      If it quacks like a duck, walks like a duck and looks like a duck, it’s a duck.

    304. jason says:

      Russian bombers are flying over the sovereign country of Ukraine right now attacking Ukraine’s infrastructure and civilian population.

      The objection to providing fighter jets so Ukraine can shoot them down over THEIR OWN TERRITORY are what exactly?

      There would be only one reason to want to ensure the Russians have free reign to bomb anything they want in Ukraine. And that is wanting the Russians to win.

      It’s time for the Putin Brigade to come clean. Make your case for why you want Putin to annex Ukraine and why you think this would have no consequences, but let’s stop pretending that any of the excuses of why its ok for Putin to invade Ukraine are anything but support for the invasion.

    305. JeffP says:

      Watching Senate hearing on the China ballon during lunch.. These people in charge asking and answering the questions are ridiculously inept and unprofessional. We are screwed.

    306. JeffP says:

      311 Jason you can root on the escalation all day that’s fine. If your really concerned and worried about more innocent people dying you would encourage peace talks. But your not. Your attempt to take the moral high ground with me is hypocritical and disgusting.

    307. Paul says:

      JeffP: If Ukraine had been an easy acquisition, there is no doubt that Russia would be moving into Poland next. Not necessarily to take over Poland but to create a corridor to Kaliningrad. The Russian people would feel it is justified so that they can have access to a northern port that isn’t frozen half the year.

      Additionally, the civil war in Ukraine in the Donbass region was created by Russia. That was the first stage of the invasion in 2014.

    308. Pitchaboy says:

      The Russians had no business going into Ukraine. The US response went from “not our problem” to “ help with defense only” to now offense. Without a doubt a proxy war is being waged by the US and parts of Europe against an unaccountable dictator with a huge nuclear arsenal. I guess this goes for good foreign policy these days. And if you dare question it, you are a Putin Puppet.

    309. Bitterlaw says:

      Peace talks before Russia pulls its troops back to the pre-invasion border is Ukrainian surrender.

    310. Bitterlaw says:

      RIP, Burt Bacharach.

    311. jason says:

      I am all for “peace talks” AFTER the Russian go back to pre-invasion borders.

      Anything else is surrender.

      JeffP is a flaming hypocrite who is “against more innocent people dying” but at the same time encourages the Russians to continue to do just that.

      And not only encourages them to do just that, he wants to ensure they continue to do just that unopposed.

      Moral high ground? Your cheerleading for Putin’s war crimes are what is despicable and disgusting.

    312. jason says:

      Jason you can root on the escalation ”


      Anything done to protect Ukranians is an “escalation”.

      But Russia can invade, kill, destroy, bomb, displace, and exile at will, that is NOT escalation.

      Here is JeffP’s definition of escalation:

      “Anything that impedes Putin from annexing Ukraine”

    313. jason says:

      The US response went from “not our problem” to “ help with defense only” to now offense.”

      What “offense” you Putin stooge moron idiot?

      The war is being fought 100% on Ukrainian territory.

      There is no “offense” here, every single weapon provided is to defend Ukraine’s sovereignty.

      But of course you must really know that, you just must feel obliged to parrot Kremlin talking points.

    314. jason says:

      Watching the British Parliament.

      They are talking about trying Putin for war crimes “as soon as the war is over”.

      And that Russia has to help pay to rebuild Ukraine.

      And that they are training 20,000 Ukrainian soldiers.

      Good for them.

    315. Phil says:


      I was watching the same thing you were. You are right. They are inept. Completely and totally. Pathetic.

    316. jason says:

      I guess this goes for good foreign policy these days.”

      I think Pitchaboy thinks “good foreign policy” is to allow Putin to invade any country he wants to recreate the Soviet Union.

    317. JeffP says:

      315 yes for sure….Biden’s foreign policy and team are absolute f ups. Biden is compromised with both China and Ukraine. The Nord Stream destruction was an act of war. Then he blames Russia. Payback could be a real bit*h someday. Personally I don’t want a world war and definitely do not want my son fighting in one that could have been avoided. But I am a Putin stooge.

    318. Bitterlaw says:

      I love how the report of a contributor to Democracy Now! is accepted without question.

    319. Tgca says:


      The British Parliament is spineless! Like most of Europe and American politicians, it’s just words for the cameras.

      Russia will not be seriously charged with and prosecuted for war crimes any more than the US would have been for invading Iraq. It’s too big of a country with international influence and risk.

      It’s all talk! Great Britain cowered when they actually had the chance to take a stand last March. Besides, 50% of the world supports Russia – many countries in Asia, Africa, South America – whether they agree with the invasion or not, hence, why countries representing more than half the world’s population abstained or voted against penalizing Russia at the UN.

      If Russia thought it was serious, than we would have WW3 and Great Britain would be at great risk of nuclear attack because Russia would not sit by and let the west try to take it out and remove their gubbermint.

      It’s all theater and fake rage like Nancy frowning and ripping up Trump’s SOTU speech. All for the cameras.

    320. Tgca says:

      If the US had a hand in the destruction of the Nord Stream 2, and that’s a VERY BIG IF, it opens up American assets for attack and rightfully so and would put a nail in the coffin on American trust around the world after Iraq lies.

      This kind of unprovoked attack should not be ignored. We would not ignore it, and rightfully so. I just hope it doesn’t result in innocent Americans dying because some covert ops were illegally authorized by a few war mongers in our gubbermint.

      I would not be surprised if this administration were involved in such a nefarious plot either. The US has had its share of covert ops instigating mayhem against other countries in the past.

      I would not trust anything our CIA or other national security apparatus said on such matters. They just have no credibility, as similar agencies in most countries have no credibility. They’re professional liars and manipulators. That’s part of their job.

    321. NYCmike says:

      “I love how the report of a contributor to Democracy Now! is accepted without question.”

      -So you put more trust in Biden and the CIA who helped get him elected?

      I don’t trust either one, but a report where the downside to it being false is more than the upside of it being true shows me that the Hersh guy is making the right enemies and speaking Truth to Power, instead of being the government mouthpiece like most of the media.

    322. Bitterlaw says:

      I did not say I trusted Biden and the CIA, either. “Truth to Power?” Zzzzzzzzz. How is Hersh doing that if you don’t even know if his report is true?

      Hersh is a far left reporter who contributed regularly to the far left and anti-American Democracy Now! Pretty strange of you to embrace him.

      After 10 years of effort by Walt since the death of his friend Walt can FINALLY take the last steps to close the estate of his friend.

      The only thing that needed to be done was for the IRS to send a refund for $286 and change to the estate.


      There was no letter of explanation in the envelope–just the check.

      No letter of apology for the IRS taking so long and giving Walt the runaround for all these years
      –and no doubt taking years off Walt’s life.

      Delays were due to IRS saying they needed the same forms again and again and again that Walt dutifully submitted and resubmitted.

      THEN the frickin’ COVID hit and communication with IRS by phone or letter was nearly nonexistent for several years.

      Cow assumes the higher amount is due to the IRS adding on interest for the last 10 years.

      There were 9 next of kin (nieces, nephews, etc.) of Walt’s friend (who died without a will). One of those was his only surviving, elderly sibling, but sadly the sister passed away a year or two ago in Michigan.

      So, of the @ $3,000 value of the estate, I am now unsure how the deceased sister’s share will be divided.

      New wrinkle…

      BUT Walt is EXCITED!

      And Walt has promised to redouble years of ongoing efforts to get the State of WV Dept. of Revenue to refund the money they have owed Walt’s son to the tune of about $2,800 in back State income taxes/interest/penalties they wrongly took from him–and Walt has documents proving they State of WV has previously acknowledges this!

      “How is Hersh doing that if you don’t even know if his report is true?”

      -You aren’t seriously asking this question, are you?

      All those asshat reporters who made up cr*p about Trump were protected by Big Media, Big Tech and the administrative state.

      In this case, Hersh is reporting a story that all of those folks would bury.

      That is the definition of speaking Truth to Power.

      Like I said – there is much more downside if the report is wrong than there is upside if it is correct.

    334. NYCmike says:

      If he is wrong, he loses credibility.

      If he is right, he is vilified by the Biden Administration, the CIA, Big Tech, Big Media etc etc.

    335. Tgca says:



      But it is justification for Russia to attack US assets, and they’d be in the right to do so. I think most of the world would agree.

      The US was against Nord Steam 2 sometime now going back years so it makes you wonder whether the US is using Ukraine as an excuse.

    336. NYCmike says:


      I hope he is wrong, as *the action of harming that pipeline* makes the United States look really bad.

    337. jason says:

      I am skeptical about the pipeline story. Possible but not probable.

      I don’t see Norway conspiring with the US to do this, and frankly I don’t see Biden as having the balls.

      If it can be used against Biden some way, fine with me.

      But as an excuse to deny aid to Ukraine and give Putin a blank check to recreate the Soviet Union, no.

      I never defended the politization of the FBI, in fact nobody has been more critical of that here than I have.

      But yes, I made sure I classified as an idiotic moron anyone who thought we don’t need the crime prevention and other functions of the FBI and talked about “defunding” and “dismantling” the FBI.


    340. jason says:

      Maybe I missed it, please point out where you saw this.”

      Yeah, you missed it, that has been pretty much JeffP’s entire point.

      How this “revelation” would impact Germany’s support for Ukraine.

      And how this “act of war” will risk “nuclear attack on the East Coast” so we better be careful about angering Putin.

      I know you are not too bright, but come’on man.

    341. Tgca says:


      You assume Biden was in charge of the decision-making.

      That’s debatable.

      I could care less about Biden. I worry more about retaliation impacting Americans.

      Intentionally blowing up Nord Stream 2 is an act of war, and Russia has a right to act in kind.

      America would do the same.

    342. jason says:

      Zzzzzz….. when is that going to happen?

    344. jason says:

      Putin is not going to “attack any US assets” over the pipeline, you read it first here.

      It’s funny how the same people who assured us that “Putin is weak”, “Putin is losing in Ukraine (he isn’t), and “Putin is no threat to any country” are suddenly “very concerned” he is going to attack the US?

      You will have to ask your Putin lapdog friend JeffP.

      Here is what he said, he wasn’t too specific.

      “If you live on the east coast you might want figure out a nuke bomb shelter and buy some Iodine pills. I should be safe where I live.”

    346. Tgca says:


      It could happen now or later. It would probably be surreptitiously anyways.

      My point is it’s justifiable if true. No country has a right to attack another country’s infrastructure without expecting retaliation.

      …if it turned out to be true, and Biden authorized it, he should be impeached. No logistical reason for the US to do this. We are not at war with Russia.

    347. jason says:

      Heh, JeffP thinks he will be “safe” if there is a nuclear holocaust?

      tentionally blowing up Nord Stream 2 ”

      Btw, does this pipeline actually belong to Russia?

      I think its owned by a consortium and only partially financed by Gazprom.

      “For Nord Stream 2, the loan from Uniper, Wintershall Dea, OMV, Engie, and Royal Dutch Shell covers 50 percent of the projected costs of €9.5 billion. The rest is being financed by Gazprom.”

      As such, the Russians could be entitled to compensation for any losses, but it is hardly an “act of war”.

    353. jason says:

      But there are upsides, if you survive the blast in York County, your pigs could grow to be 2 to 3 times bigger.”

      Wow, just think of the bacon on those suckers.

    354. Tgca says:

      All this Nord Stream 2 talk reminds me of the 60s movie Fail Safe where the US accidentally takes out Moscow due to technology malfunction and to avoid a global nuclear war, the U.S. self-sacrifices NYC to prove to the USSR it really was not intentional.

      Good movie but horrible scenario. Still could happen. Who knows.

    355. Tgca says:


      It sources Russian gas and therefore their revenue.

      It would be like destroying American pipelines or refineries to harm its economy.

      Definitely an act of war.

    356. jason says:

      Not really. It’s not the same thing at all.

      The pipeline is not Russian per se, and wasn’t destroyed in Russia. In fact, only a tiny part was actually destroyed.

      If blame can be assigned, the Russians can ask for compensation for any losses incurred. But act of war? A real stretch.

    357. jason says:

      Let’s say a shipment of PA scrapple was on its way to China on a third party vessel. Country A sinks the ship and all the scrapple is lost.

      Act of war? Not really. But the US can ask for compensation for the delicious scrapple being eaten by the denizens of the deep.

    358. Tgca says:


      Let’s say the invaluable scrapple is on a shipment on a private US cargo plane. Russia shoots down the plane carrying US citizens, and more importantly invaluable scrapple.

      There are some reports tonight that a Major Russian Offensive may now be underway in Eastern Ukraine with Artillery and Missile Strikes that are consistent with Shaping Operations currently taking place in the Kharkiv, Luhansk, Donetsk, and Zaporizhzhia Regions. However I would still recommend waiting for Confirmation from Ukrainian and Western Officials that the Offensive has indeed begun.

      According to Russian Sources, there are at least 10 Tu-95 Strategic Bombers now noted to be Airborne. If true this is the most Russian Strategic Bombers that I have heard being Airborne at one time during the Invasion.

    375. jason says:

      Hey JeffP, you are fine with the slaughter of Ukrainians, so take you fake “my heart goes out” and GFY. You really are a despicable POS.

      “If true this is the most Russian Strategic Bombers that I have heard being Airborne at one time ”

      Good news. Despite all the efforts of the Putin Brigades, Americans still support Ukraine.

      And 65% support Ukraine reclaiming its territory “even if it means a prolonged conflict”

      What is impressive is the polling has not changed in six months:

      In Aug 2022 it was 66% to 31% in supporting Ukraine even if it means prolonged conflict; in Jan 2023 it was 65% to 31% in support.

      Even Republicans were in support even if it means a prolonged conflict by a 53% to 41% margin.

      Unfortunately, it appears Trump, by opposing the sale of tanks to the Ukraine, and saying he can in 24 hours make a deal with Putin to end the war, is taking a position that is making it difficult for a lot of Republicans, including myself, to support him in 2024.

    384. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      From Politico:

      “Those close to Trump’s campaign operation say he plans to try and paint himself as an anti-war dove amongst the hawks. They believe doing so will resonate with GOP voters who are divided on, but growing wary of, continued support for Ukraine in its war with Russia.

      “Trump is the peace president and he’s the first president in two generations to not start a war, whereas if you look at DeSantis’ congressional record, he’s voted for more engagement and more military engagement overseas,” said a person close to the Trump campaign, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to describe internal discussions.”

    385. Bitterlaw says:

      Although it will probably not be an issue in 2024 because Ukraine will either prevail or surrender by then, if Trump runs on a platform of appeasement of Putin by not supporting Ukraine, he probably loses my vote in the primary. If he gets the nomination, he gets my vote in the GE.

    386. jason says:

      Well, it’s settled.

      JeffP hardest hit.

      President Biden believes Russian President Vladimir Putin has “already lost Ukraine,” he told PBS NewsHour in a Wednesday interview.

    387. jason says:

      I wonder if the “major offensive” JeffP is so excited about is an “escalation”.

      Oh wait, only defensive actions by Ukraine are “escalations”…. sorry, forgot.

    388. jason says:

      I don’t really believe anything Politico says. That being said Trump is an opportunist and he figures if he can corner the “anti-war” isolationist vote its a good start for his campaign while bad policy for America. He assumes Rs that support Ukraine will be stuck voting for him anyway in the GE.

      However, I am confident that had Trump been President, Putin would never have invaded Ukraine and had he been President he would not have surrendered Ukraine either. During the months the Russians took building up forces on the Ukrainian border and Biden did nothing, I think Trump would have taken a much more aggressive stance and drawn a line Putin would not have crossed. Trump is a protectionist and isolationist at heart, but I doubt he would agree to be upstaged by Putin.

      And Trump did not really shy away from military action. He claimed he won the war against ISIS with concerted military action in Iraq and Syria. He continued to kill terrorists and even the head of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards.

      “We destroyed the ISIS [Islamic State in Iraq and Syria] caliphate….You know when President Trump came into office, ISIS had captured an area of the Middle East, the size of Pennsylvania. President Trump unleashed the American military, and our armed forces destroyed the ISIS Caliphate and took down their leader al Baghdadi without one American casualty.”

    389. jason says:

      The Wagner group of Kremlin affiliated mercenaries announced today that it won’t be recruiting anymore Russian prisoners. The group’s leader, Yevgeny Prigozhin, didn’t explain why.

      “One of the lawyers who spoke to Agentstvo said the decline of volunteers from among the prison population was in part due to information about Wagner’s high casualties becoming known.

      The experiences of prisoners who completed their six-month Wagner contracts may have deterred others from joining up. Prigozhin was seen last month with some of the demobilized fighters, many of whom had clearly been wounded.

      It’s quite possible that some who have now returned home have relayed accounts of the appalling casualties suffered among Wagner ranks – as wave after wave of fighters were sent into the path of Ukrainian artillery and tank fire.

      The two Wagner prisoners interviewed this week by CNN spoke of huge losses as they were sent to storm Ukrainian positions, with fighters refusing to go forward instantly executed by commanders, they said.

      One of the lawyers who spoke to Agentstvo said the decline of volunteers from among the prison population was in part due to information about Wagner’s high casualties becoming known.”

      Evidently there were 40000 of these guys in the field in Ukraine.

      I think the problem is that convicts looking for a way out of jail don’t make the best soldiers. There motivation is not the same and they probably resist authority and discipline, keys to a military role.

      VILNIUS (Reuters) -A group of 35 countries including the United States, Germany, France, Britain and Japan have unanimously agreed to demand that Russian and Belarusian athletes are banned from the 2024 Olympics, the Lithuanian sports minister said on Friday

      With war raging in Ukraine, the Baltic States, Nordic countries and Poland had called on international sports bodies to ban Russian and Belarusian athletes from competing in the Olympics.”

      This is an outrageous escalation. I am worried that Putin might attack the Olympics with nukes as retaliation.

      I suggest the Russians be given gold medals at all events to avoid angering Putin.

    391. jason says:

      Streiff has a lot of good reasons on why he thinks the Hersh pipeline story is utter BS, but agrees it should be investigated anyway. I have no objection.

      These are the reasons that I don’t believe Hersh’s account.

      “The decision to cut the congressional Gang of Eight out of this operation based on some lackwit understanding of the law doesn’t pass the smell test. If they did cut out Congress, they would’ve come up with a reason that didn’t draw guffaws from the members of a Joint Investigative Committee when it inevitably convenes.

      The CIA’s role in operational planning does not match how the services conduct special operations, even in concert with the CIA.

      The use of deep water divers from the US Navy Diving and Salvage Training Center strikes me as unlikely it is a training installation. The depth of the water in the Baltic doesn’t require specialized service craft. And the real experts in underwater operations are Navy SEALs. So going outside that community seems counterintuitive.

      The depth of the pipelines, less than 300 feet, didn’t require specialized diving skills as much as specialized demolition skills.

      Using a NATO training exercise to mask the operation sounds cool until you realize that this required the explosives to be left armed and in place for 90 days. Using a sonar buoy to set off the explosions seems to add another level of complication to an already complicated operation.

      The explosions going off 15 hours and 50 miles apart calls into question the sonar buoy detonation story.

      From a plausibility standpoint, I can’t believe that Joe Biden or anyone in his inner circle came up with this idea.

      The idea that we’d surreptitiously blow up two pipelines in the economic zone of two allies when the pipelines were already shut down makes no sense. Nothing was to be gained from blowing up the pipelines, and the political fallout of the operation being exposed would be immense.

      The Norwegians cooperating in such an operation makes no sense. In fact, I’m not sure what the Norwegians even brought to the table.

      Too many people from too many agencies were involved for this to be an accurate portrayal of events. You can’t have that many people involved not to have leaks before or after the event.

      I stick by my original assessment that this was a Russian operation. Unlike the theory of planting explosives three months before the attack, Russian Navy diving support ships were tracked in the area of both explosions days before the event. You can read my thoughts at the time at Putin’s PR Machine Throws up Smoke as the Nord Stream Pipeline Explosion Investigation Begins.

      Now that this story is in play, the House and Senate owe it to themselves and the country to investigate this story. It isn’t like they haven’t investigated patent dumbf***ery in the past; they actually looked into the claim that vice presidential candidate George H. W. Bush flew to Paris in an SR-71 to negotiate a release of the embassy hostages held by Iran and guarantee Ronald Reagan’s victory in 1980.

      Senator Mike Lee is correct. If Hersh has any part of this story right, the nation has a real problem with rogue actors in the CIA and Department of Defense. But, as the old saying goes, it is the seriousness of the allegation, not the quality of the evidence, that demands a full-blown investigation.”

    392. jason says:

      These are the reasons that I don’t believe Hersh’s account.

      That should have been in quotes.

    393. Jeffpee says:

      The war will never end if the Ukrainians keep escalating it by shooting down Russian missiles.

      “KYIV (Reuters) – Russia unleashed a new wave of missile strikes on energy infrastructure across Ukraine on Friday, causing emergency power outages for millions of people and prompting new calls by Kyiv for Western arms.

      Ukraine’s air force said Russia had fired 71 cruise missiles, of which 61 were shot down, and explosions were reported by local officials around the country including in the capital Kyiv.

      At least 17 missiles hit the southeastern city of Zaporizhzhia in an hour in the heaviest attack since Russia invaded Ukraine in February last year, local officials said.

      Energy Minister German Galushchenko said thermal and hydro power generation facilities and high-voltage infrastructure had been hit in six regions, forcing emergency electricity shutdowns across most of the country.

      “The most difficult situation is in Zaporizhzhia, Kharkiv and Khmelnytskyi regions,” he said, referring to regions in the southeast, northeast and west of Ukraine.

      “Thanks to the successful work of the air defense forces and early technical measures, it was possible to preserve the integrity of the energy system of Ukraine. Energy workers are working non-stop to restore energy supply.”

      “Russia committed about 3,000 battle tanks to its invasion of Ukraine — and nearly a year later, it has lost about half of them, Dutch open-source intelligence group Oryx said Thursday. Oryx says it has visually verified 1,012 Russian tanks destroyed in Ukraine, another 544 captured by Ukrainian forces, 79 damaged, and 65 abandoned. Counting unconfirmed losses, Russia’s tank losses could be closer to 2,000, Oryx contributor Jakub Janovsky told CNN. Ukraine, meanwhile, has lost 459 tanks, fewer than it has captured from Russia.

      Russia started the war with more than 12,000 tanks to Ukraine’s 2,000, by The Wall Street Journal’s count. Janovsky estimates that Russia has about 4,000 tanks in reserve, though “many were not properly stored and might be hard to reactivate quickly.”

      Dmitry Medvedev, deputy chairman of the Russian Security Council, toured a tank manufacturing plant in Omsk province on Thursday, saying Russia needs to increase production in response to the modern battle tanks the West is sending Ukraine, the Institute for the Study of War think tank reports. The Kremlin’s efforts to gradually ramp up Russia’s military-industrial complex is “incompatible with the scale of the war that the Russian military is fighting in Ukraine and the scale of Russian military equipment losses.”

      Ukraine may not be getting as many advanced Western battle tanks as anticipated, the Journal reports. Germany has committed to sending Ukraine 14 Leopard 2 tanks as soon as March and will refurbish more than 150 Leopard 1 tanks for transfer, but only Poland has joined it in pledging to send a substantial number of modern tanks. Britain says its 14 Challenger 2 tanks should arrive in Ukraine by the end of March, but the 31 pledged U.S. Abrams tanks won’t arrive for months.

      Other Western countries don’t appear to have many operational Leopard 2s to spare, and that “should be taken as an alarm signal in Europe,” former German defense official Nico Lange tells the Journal.

      Still, Russia’s armor losses are large and growing. Including infantry fighting vehicles, armored personnel carries, and other non-tank vehicles, Russia has lost nearly 9,000 military vehicles, Oryx says, while Ukraine has lost 2,934. In Russia’s attack on the southern town of Vuhledar, Britain’s Defense Ministry said early Friday, inexperienced “Russian troops likely fled and abandoned at least 30 mostly intact armored vehicles in a single incident after a failed assault.”

    397. jason says:

      Even the 150 “old” Leopards are still a significant asset especially if used in defensive positions against advancing infantry and other tanks.

      The fact Ukraine has only lost 460 tanks so far means they are using their armor effectively and shielding it from air power successfully.

      The difference is that the Russians can afford to lose men and equipment more than Ukraine. And because there is no free press in Russia, these losses are not divulged and public sentiment is not affected.

      And nobody is jailed for 15 years in Ukraine for calling it a “war”.

      Ukraine is ranked 96th out of 180 countries in freedom of the press, making it about average, while Russia is 155th out of 180, meaning only about 14% of countries have less freedom of the press.

      Here is a fair assessment of Ukraine’s policies regarding media. It is not ideal, for sure, but most of it is in line with EU policies (which are not that great either).

      But is far less draconian than anything that goes on it Russia.

      Much too late for me, the woke NFL is dead to me, even if they abandoned wokeness now the magic is gone. I wouldn’t be able to watch a game without wondering when the next self entitled millionaire was going to lecture me on race relations or what woke message was in the end zone or what woke ad was coming up.

      “According to a poll conducted by The Trafalgar Group asked likely voters: “Do you believe that sporting events, like the Super Bowl, should include political or cultural statements as part of the game and coverage, or just focus on the game itself?”

      An overwhelming majority of 84.4 percent answered that sporting events should “just focus on the game.”

      Only 10 percent said the political and cultural statements should be included, with 5.6 saying they were “not sure.”

      It gets better.

      When broken down by political affiliation, the Trafalgar Group found that even Democrats have had it with the injection of politics into sports. A massive 76.7 percent of likely Democrat voters said the NFL should simply focus on the game with only 15.6 percent of Democrats saying messages should be included.

      For Republicans and Independents, the “Just focus on the game” option was the majority winner at 93.4 and 82.2 percent respectively.

      This is a very interesting result, especially given the fact that the poll skewed more Democrat and female.

      The NFL’s relationship with political messaging has cost the league broadcasts viewership in the past. The 2017/2018 season saw a whopping 33 percent of its audience leave the fandom over the kneeling controversy, where NFL players took a knee during the national anthem to protest the United States and Trump.

      After the NFL largely abandoned social justice messaging viewership bounced back with the 2021 Super Bowl attracting over 112 million viewers.

      Some fans have still yet to return over the NFL allowing the insult to the country and the troops to happen in the first place. Some fields still have references to social justice messaging, but most have resorted to vague messages of positivity and togetherness.

      The NFL would be wise to listen to the people and remove any modern social messaging altogether”

      #424 – if there was ever a time I could have been arrested, it was breaking up a fight between 4 girls, 3 beating up 1. Thankfully I had my dog with me, as she was literally “ready to go” if anyone came from behind me. Gosh, what a great dog ol’ Ruby was!

      The 3 girls were downright vicious, and 1 of them actually threatened me by saying “You touch me and I’ll sue!”. I guess my response of “I’ll give you one phone call to your lawyer before I start your beating.” wasn’t what she thought I would say, and she backed off with her accomplices.


    413. NYCmike says:

      And yes, terrible story. Heard about it on the news earlier today. Sickening.

    414. jason says:

      I think the problem with the Hersch story is the Norwegian angle. The story doesn’t work without the Norwegians but I just don’t see the Norwegians engaging in this type of operation. The fact it is also not drawing any scrutiny in Norway tells me the Norwegians think it is BS too.

    415. Bitterlaw says:

      NYC – That is why they invented the term “meanagers.” The worst story I ever heard was about a teenaged girl who killed herself. The girls who teased and bullied her came to her wake and were laughing and making fun of her in her casket. I don’t know how her parents did not snap and cause them harm. I hope those girls have miserable lives.

    416. NYCmike says:


      I can’t imagine knowing people that would act in such a way. I would look to meet their parents to see if they knew what they had raised.

    417. JeffP says:

      DeSantis is the only one that could defeat Trump. Everyone in the GOP knows this. Trumps attacks on him have not gone well and just highlights his worst attributes which hurts him. If it’s a binary choice early enough DeSantis will win the nomination I am pretty confident of that now. However, I agree with Phil that Trump is going to be indicted for something eventually and that will be a factor.

    418. JeffP says:

      Hersh is a credible journalist and his track record proves it. He has exposed abuses of power in the past that were initially denied and were proven true. The hot Norway PM is another WEF approved leader and would definitely be involved as their goal is regime change. Which is ridiculous with Russian Nationalist Medvedev probably the next in line. China, Russia, India, NK, etc… are establishing their own banking network for nefarious reasons. Biden is a f up and admitted this was going to happen months before. Nuland as well. I could go on about the natural gas deals that were signed days after the line was destroyed with the UK. You have to be naive to deny US involvement.

    419. JeffP says:

      The violence with teenagers and pre teens taking place today is staggering. I met with a chaplain at a juvenile detention facility this past week. He has served there for almost 20 years. They would have one or two gun related murders per year a few years ago. He said it’s one or two per week now and the local media is not reporting it. He also described a catch and release program for all other crimes that is totally corrupt and ineffective. He is contemplating retirement now and moving out of the Woke Commie Dem city.

      Understanding your enemies worldview and belief system is crucial in defeating them.

      I had hoped that the retreat in the Donbas area was the beginning of the end of Russia aggression in Ukraine…assuming the history and what I understood at that point of Putins commitment to possess Ukraine at almost any cost knowing the risk of WW 3.

      Last night my wife asked me if I knew that Putin was part of the Romanov bloodline. I was like your kidding me right. A simple google search addressed that. His obsession with Russia Nationalism and the apostate Russian Orthodox Church made a lot more sense…not to mention his commitment to destroy any western influence in Ukraine regardless of the loss of life and destruction. WAR.

    423. jason says:

      His obsession with Russia Nationalism and the apostate Russian Orthodox Church made a lot more sense”

      Zzzzzz….JeffP shilling for Putin again. He is entitled to recreate a Greater Russia because he is a “descendant” of the the Romanovs?


      I guess any leader of France who descends from Napoleon has the right to start a new French empire?

      Who cares about Putin’s commitment to recreate the USSR or “why” he wants to do it. He has to be stopped. Period.

      The rest is just Russian talking points, which JeffP LOVES.

    424. jason says:

      Hersh is a credible journalist and his track record proves it. ”

      Zzzz… Hersh won a Pulitzer 50+ years ago, but the NYT won Pulitzers for their fake Russian collusion articles too.

      He is a far leftist and is actually a supporter of Syrian dictator Assad, so the idea he is pro-Putin is not that far fetched.

      In 2011 he claimed “Stanley McChrystal, the former top commander in Afghanistan, and the leadership of the US Joint Special Operations Forces were “all members of, or at least supporters of, Knights of Malta.”

      He claims the Bin Laden killing, which is actually on film, was a “cover up” for a joint US-Pakistani operation a “hoax”.

      While he might have been “celebrated” early in his career, he has pretty much been discredited since.

      His article is based on one single anonymous “source” and has zero corroboration.

      Norway has one word for it: Nonsense. As I pointed out above, the idea Norway would collaborate with some covert US operation like this is pretty unlikely if not impossible.

    425. jason says:

      Here is the deal.

      Nobody should care where and why Putin gets his ideas.

      There is ZERO justification for Putin’s invasion of the Ukraine or his despotic rule in Russia.

      It didn’t matter “why” Hitler wanted to create a 1000 year Reich. It had to be defeated.

    426. Gordon Allen says:

      #432. Trump is playing the part of the desperate, mud slinging challenger, and DeSantis the part of the confident incumbent front runner above the fray conducting the people’s business, barely if at all noticing the Challenger.
      This is smart of DeSantis ( he and Casey are both smart), and Trump is acting stupidly ( par for the course politically). Trump needs smarter people around him- who he’ll listen to.
      As of today DeSantis LOVES his position, which is even better than he hoped for.

    427. jason says:

      “Trump is playing the part of the desperate, mud slinging challenger”

      Good, so you have nothing to worry about and thus can stop trashing Trump.

    428. jason says:

      Understanding your enemies worldview and belief system is crucial in defeating them”

      No. It is not.

      This is akin to the defense for murderers “oh, he grew up poor in a bad neighborhood with an abusive father, blah blah blah” that defense lawyers always bring up for justification of their actions.

      The fact is 99.9999% of people in that situation don’t kill anybody.

      There is no doubt Putin is a Russian Nationalist who wants a Greater Russia and another USSR.

      “Understanding” that won’t help defeat him. Military power will.

    429. JeffP says:

      Worldview of your enemies doesn’t matter…you don’t think that applies to the CCP too?

      Your way too simplistic. Another example.

      The hypothetical comparisons you are making in France and Germany to Russias history are not even compatible. Russia has NEVER had a democratic or republic form government EVER. They function as an autocratic top down country their whole existence.

      Biden gave the Nord Stream admission months ago. Why are you denying that?

      I don’t see the world as simply as you do Jason. Not that I am more intelligent than you by any means, I just have learned the hard way.

    430. JeffP says:

      I don’t trust Zelenskyy either because he is no different than any other autocratic corrupt leader.

    431. JeffP says:

      Worldview of you enemies doesn’t matter…Hitler wrote a book in prison of his worldview and it wasn’t taken seriously when he became Chancellor. It matter to millions of Jews.

    432. Bitterlaw says:

      I don’t trust Zelenskyy either because he is no different than any other autocratic corrupt leader.

      So how many more Ukrainians have to be killed and maimed and how much Ukrainian territory should Russia keep because you don;t trust Zelensky?

    433. JeffP says:

      447 The answer is Zero. That is who I care about the most … the PEOPLE of Ukraine and why I want a peace agreement asap and no more escalation or long term war. I also don’t want to provoke WW 3 or a nuclear situation of any degree. I am very concerned about Putins resolve and those around him related to his worldview. I am hoping the Ukraine can maintain their front line positions in hope that Russia retreats again. But the invasion is just beginning its next deadly phase (Russia is bombing power plants vs power sub stations now) and they are committed to the long term outcome. Troop numbers alone are an issue for Ukraine. So very little hope of a positive outcome for Ukraine that could happen without NATO troops on the ground and weapons in a hot war which we mean WW 3. You may not agree but it’s my perspective.

    434. Paul says:

      Zelenskyy is NOT a corrupt autocrat. You are swallowing Russian propaganda. He’s a normal leader who is facing an existential threat to his nation. He might overreach sometimes but some of that is necessary in extreme times.

    435. Paul says:

      Do you realize a peace deal at this moment would mean death for many of those people you are SO COMPASSIONATE about. It also means having children taken from their families in Ukraine and sent to the other side of Russia. And it means loss of all freedom.


    436. JeffPee says:

      what I care about most is the people of Czechoslovakia. If they lose quickly to Germany, they will not suffer as much. Same with Poland. If Poland is taken over quickly by Germany, they will be happy living in the great Third Reich.

      “Things I did–and shouldn’t have, or didn’t do but should have done.”

      “Relationships that I ended or walked away from that I regret doing. People who deserved more love from me that I failed to give. And relationships that were begun that, regrettably, should not have been.”

    441. JeffP says:

      German MP isn’t keeping quiet….

      if the Hersh report is verified this is going to be a big f n deal. Biden F Upped with this one. He let it slip months ago too probably because of his age.


      The AfD (Alternative for Germany) party called a special debate of the German Bundestag Friday to discuss the explosive revelations by veteran investigative reporter Seymour Hersh bout potential CIA sabotage of the Nord Stream pipeline. AfD delegate Markus Frohnmaier said that “a red line has been crossed” if the attack came from a NATO country, and that “we need to know who was behind the attack” on Nord Stream.”

      Mrkus Frohnmaier: Madam President, Ladies and Gentlemen,
      We are facing a very serious situation.

      In September, Nord Stream was blown up.

      Now, almost five months later, a terrible suspicion has arisen.

      There are claims that Nord Stream was attacked by our own allies.

      There are charges that the United States of America and the Kingdom of Norway planned and carried out an explosive attack on Nord Stream.

      This accusation was made by a US citizen: award-winning journalist Seymour Hersh.

      In an article published Wednesday, Hersh cites a source who appears to have had direct knowledge of the planning of the operation.

      Hersh claims the United States and Norway arranged for explosives to be planted on both Nord Stream pipelines during a NATO naval maneuver in the Baltic Sea last summer, which was remotely detonated a few months later.

      The White House and the CIA deny these allegations.

      But we know how much you can trust American intel services.

      Just recall (the revelations of Edward Snowden), who revealed that Chancellor (Angela) Merkel was being bugged by the NSA.

      An explosive attack on German infrastructure would mean a red line has been crossed.

      Article 5 of the North Atlantic Treaty states: “The Parties agree that an armed attack against one or more of them in Europe or North America shall be considered an attack against them all.”

      An attack on Nord Stream is an attack on Germany, and thus on the entire alliance.
      But if it were an ally that attacked our critical infrastructure, the trust that is the foundation of any alliance would be destroyed.
      Ladies and Gentlemen, I would like to make one thing very clear before my words are deliberately twisted:
      I cannot rule out that it was the US and Norway that blew up Nord Stream. I also cannot rule out that Russia blew up Nord Stream.

      In fact, I can’t rule anything out.

      And why not?

      Why is it that, 137 days after Nord Stream was blown up, as a member of Parliament, I still don’t know who did it?

      Because, in these 137 days, our government has done nothing, zero, not one nanometer to find out who did!

      After almost five months, the government of the fourth largest economy in the world still does not know who attacked us, on our own doorstep.

      The kindest interpretation of this complete failure is that our government consists of incompetent fools whom no one takes seriously – not in Moscow, not in Washington, not in Oslo.

      In the worst case, it means something completely different: that this government has no interest in finding out who did it, that this government is hiding the truth, that this government is not acting in the German interest, but in the interest of other countries.

    442. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      457. So our Putin troll is a quoting a German politician from a group with ties to Putin. Anyone surprised?

      “Politicians from a far-right party in Germany who are on a visit to Russia, and plan to travel to Russian-occupied eastern Ukraine, have been accused of supporting Vladimir Putin’s war and of undertaking a “propaganda trip”.”

    443. JeffPee says:

      A bit more on AfD. So what if they are pro-Russia.

    444. Bitterlaw says:

      Walt regrets not getting a patent on fire. Millions of years of lost royalties and license fees.

    445. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      I don’t think a Russian lackey is going to create outrage over the Nord Stream pipeline getting blown up. So what? Whoever did it provided the world a beneficial service,and deserves an award. My guess is little Greta from Sweden blew it up.

      American LNG can provide Germany replacement gas. Hopefully the Germans will come to their senses and turn to nuclear power again, along with their plans for additional wind power.

    446. Sheeple,Jr. says:

      According to a news flash from Jack Posobiec, it appears that an F-22 has shot down another Chinese Spy Balloon over Canada with at least one more Balloon on approach to the area.

      The Vietnam War was escalated with domino theory. Ukraine war is being escalated on Hitlerian expansionist theory. A proxy war is being fought to weaken Russia as a strategic move. Meanwhile, our stockpiles are depleting. The only ones laughing are the Chinese who are getting Russian energy for cheap and our corrupt military establishment that has an excuse for a blank check. It hardly matters who is President. This country will be crushed by debt.

    457. JeffP says:

      So are you Biden trusting supporters going to trust Joe to handle it? You seem to love his foreign policy.


    458. JeffP says:

      470 That’s right Tina and it pisses me off. Biden is completely inept as commander and chief.

    460. JeffP says:

      458 Hey SDC…Just like the crazy libs you don’t address the merit of the point or issue and use labels to discredit. The “Putin troll” lackey crap is about as old as using “racist”. If trust old Joe and his foreign policy and think committing an act of war is a good thing for the people of Germany what’s your argument.

    461. Tgca says:


      I don’t know why you’re surprised.

      We know both historically and currently, the US gubbermint routinely lies, distorts, misrepresents and tries to cover-up and hide information from the public.

      The US gubbermint and its law enforcement and security agencies are no more intellectually honest than most of the dIctatotships around the world.

      The only difference is our gubbermint still operates under a democracy rather than totalitarian rule. But democracy is also about self-preservation of politicians so many of our leaders and agencies often lie and mislead to protect themselves and for their own benefit.

      Every GOP and Dem administration going back 100+ years have been guilty of this. Not one if them is exempt. Presidents may not know every detail of every scandal but often they do know more than they disclosed.

    462. Robbie says:

      While I haven’t seen anything that would qualify as X-Files, I know several who have.

      Everyone should google “foo fighters WWII pilots”.

    463. JeffP says:

      478 I agree. Not surprised by the lying I get it. The Nord Stream issue puts our country at much greater risk and destroys credibility in the EU. Putin is not going to stop his murderous crusade without intervention. Now we have China messing with us for who knows what reason. Our enemies are taking full advantage.

    464. Bitterlaw says:

      JeffP – You believe the Hersh story. I highly doubt it.

      I have never called you or anybody else a Putin troll or toadie or sycophant. However, despite your claimed condemnation of the invasion, your positions reward and encourage it. You oppose providing Ukraine weapons to defend itself. The only party escalating this war is Putin. ALL of the deaths in this war are occurring in Ukraine. Your “peace agreement” ignores the reality that peace now leaves tens of thousands of Russian soldiers firmly in control of Ukrainian territory and citizens.

    465. JeffP says:

      481 Thanks. I understand the potential for the loss of the Donbas region in a peace agreement. It probably doesn’t matter though at this point anyway. Certainly Biden and his administration have no desire for any agreement and Biden is no statesmen. It looks like Trump is going to run on being that person I guess.

    466. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      The British are beginning to train Ukrainian pilots in the use of modern jet fighters:

      “Standing alongside Zelenskyy in front of a British-made Challenger 2 tank, Sunak restated that “nothing is off the table” when it comes to provision of military assistance to Ukraine, and said fourth-generation fighter jets were part of his conversation with the Ukrainian president “today, and have been previously.”

      These talks also covered the supply chains required to support such sophisticated aircraft, Sunak said.

      But he cautioned a decision to deliver jets would only be taken in coalition with allies, and said training pilots must come first and could take “some time.”

      “That’s why we have announced today that we will be training Ukrainian air force on NATO-standard platforms, because the first step in being able to provide advanced aircrafts is to have soldiers or aviators who are capable of using them,” Sunak said. “We need to make sure they are able to operate the aircraft they might eventually be using.”

      The first Challenger 2 tanks pledged by Britain will arrive in Ukraine by next month, Sunak added.”

      I could see a peace agreement being negotiated later this year that recognizes Crimea, and areas of Donbass that Russia occupied prior to the 2022 invasion, as part of Russia Ultimately, I doubt Putin will still be in power at the end of 2024. The fool may have cost the lives of over 100,000 young Russians when this is over. With close to a half million young Russians having fled the country. History will not be kind.

      Let’s get real and discuss what’s REALLY important to MOST people…GENDER IDENTITY.

      Artificial Intelligence App ChatGPT came to the conclusion:

      The concept of gender is complex and culturally specific, and there is NO universally accepted answer to how many genders there are.

      Some cultures recognize only two genders, male and female, while others recognize more than two.

      In recent years, there has been growing recognition of the existence of non-binary and gender non-conforming individuals, who may identify as a mix of male and female, neither male nor female, or as another gender entirely.

      It’s important to understand that gender is a social and cultural construct, and individuals have the right to self-identify and express their gender in the way that feels most authentic and true to themselves.

      The number of genders is NOT fixed, and can vary across cultures and historical periods. Ultimately, the number of genders is a matter of personal and cultural perspective, and can be influenced by factors such as biology, psychology, and social norms.

    468. Gordon Allen says:

      At the rate we’re going the Air Force will start having ACES for 5 shootdowns, and a competition for who has the most!!
      I agree a compromise would ratify Crimea as Russian(Khruschev made it part of Crimea), and those areas in East Ukraine that were “separatist controlled”( Russian) and Russian speaking on February 23,2022 would be annexed by Russia. Russia would have to withdraw from areas along the south part of Ukraine and elsewhere gained after 2/24/22.
      Contrary to Nuts here that would represent a clear victory by Ukraine, and a clear loss for Putin.

      I have advocated myself for a ceasefire that would return the status quo to pre-invasion borders.

      But “Ratify annexation” would not be politically viable for Zelensky, and I certainly don’t agree with the “Russian speaking” part since vast areas of Ukraine are “Russian speaking” but loyal to Ukraine. It would be like saying Spain can annex Puerto Rico because it is “Spanish speaking”.

      IF the Russians agreed to a cease fire that returned the situation to pre-invasion then yes that would be a defeat for both countries. Russia and Ukraine would have endured terrible losses without gains for either one.

      Crimea could become like the “Golan Heights”, Syria has not relinquished its claim to it but it is not getting it back.

    470. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      “…that would represent a clear victory by Ukraine, and a clear loss for Putin.”

      Agree Gordon. It would be like the outcome of the Finnish-Russian war in 1939. Even though Finland lost 10% of it’s territory to Russia in the peace settlement, it was a defining moment in Finnish independence. Finland had only broken away from Russia and become independent about 20 years before.

      Likewise any doubt the Ukraine cannot function independent of Russia, and has no national identity is now gone. Putin has blundered badly. He has united the Ukraine, and opened the door to it becoming under western European influence, which is likely to force economic reform and combat corruption.

    471. jason says:

      Again, I don’t think a settlement where Russia gets to keep the areas it occupied before the invasion is politically viable for Putin, just like formally ceding Crimea and separatist areas is not politically viable for Zelensky.

      Of course, the West could come up with “rewards” to encourage an agreement. They could suspend sanctions and restart the pipeline for Russia and promise a reconstruction program for Ukraine to sweeten the deal and give Putin and Zelensky something to sell at home.

      But would the isolationists and protectionists whine about spending another $100 billion on reconstruction instead of arms if it stopped the war? Probably.

    472. jason says:

      LOL, this guy is stupider than Neville Allen.

      David Leavitt
      If Starlink is blocking the Ukrainian military from using its equipment in the fight against Russia, @elonmusk
      must immediately be arrested and tried for treason.”

      First, Starlink helps Ukrainians.

      Second, treason against whom. Presumably, IF he was a Ukrainian citizen conspiring against Ukraine, he could be tried for treason in Ukraine.

      As a US citizen, even if true, it is not “treason” anywhere.

      Of course, if that it the criteria, let’s send Putin stooge and spokesman Tucker Carlson to be tried for treason in Ukraine. I will even volunteer as witness.

    473. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      One issue that badly needs to be investigated at the conclusion of the war is Hunter Biden’s questionable business activities in the Ukraine; as well as Joe Biden’s actions on getting the Ukrainian prosecutor investigating Hunter Biden’s activities fired. Eventually it will all come out. Also I doubt Putin would have attacked Ukraine if it was not for Biden’s cowardly withdraw from Afghanistan. Biden is a total disgrace.

    477. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      489. Starlink is critical in helping the Ukrainians target their weaponry. Ukraine should give Elon Musk a medal after the war. I believe the supposed dispute between Ukrainians and Musk several months ago was just for show:

      “Ukrainian troops equipped with devastating HIMARS are waiting for US targeting data before firing on Russian forces, officials say.

      These powerful weapons have been game-changers in Ukraine. Ukrainian troops usually won’t fire their HIMARS without targeting data from the US, officials said”

      493 Tina we really are.

      Putin is completely committed to do whatever is necessary in Ukraine. The CCP Xi has his own global ruling worldview. Together they are a very formidable force against the west.

      I have not had the time to research it yet but Russia, China, and several other countries are creating a financial banking system completely separate from the west. Of course nothing about this in the US media.

    480. JeffP says:

      Tina…but the west has the WEF crowd to get their marching orders. Trudeau is trying to force a digital medical ID in Canada like a good soldier.

      Good for the Golden Calf.

      “Florida lawmakers voted Thursday to give Gov. Ron DeSantis new power over the state’s most iconic theme parks amid his ongoing feud with Disney.

      Under a fast-tracked bill that could be headed to the Republican governor’s desk by the end of the week, the state would take over the Reedy Creek Improvement District, the 55-year-old government body that has effectively given Disney control over the land around its Orlando-area theme parks. The district’s existing board, made up of individuals with close ties to Disney, would be replaced by a five-member board hand-picked by DeSantis.

      The state House, where Republicans hold a supermajority, passed the measure on an 82-31 vote. The GOP-led state Senate is expected to take up the bill within the next 36 hours. If the measure passes the chamber, it will go to DeSantis for final approval. He is expected to sign it.”

      Unfortunately threats don’t come in order and they don’t allow for one at a time, maybe they do in video games. In the real world, you can face multiple threats.

      You deal with ALL threats and right now Putin is the one actually engaged in military action. Allowing him to restart the USSR because we “also face a threat from China” is isolationist trash.

      Not really. He has conquered vast amounts of territory he didn’t have before the invasion.

      The war is being fought in Ukraine and all the destruction is occurring there. He has tens of thousands of square miles he did not have before.

      Russia is not losing. In any classical definition of war, it is winning. It is just not winning as much as it planned in the time frame it planned, which is different.

      A cease fire right without a Russian withdrawal would be a major Russian win and a huge defeat for Ukraine. That is why Zelensky and the West should not entertain it.

    490. Paul says:

      If Russia goes back to the status quo of pre-2022 with Russia controlling Crimea and half of Donbass that would be VERY agreeable and a WIN for Ukraine. Russia WILL NOT agree to that unless they suffer some major defeats.

      Sounds like Milley was sent himself, or maybe the 3 masks defense secretary. We are so phuqed just because Biden cucked handling the spy balloon and our defense department is inept.

      It’s also sad that the Putin lapdogs always refer to military aid to Ukraine as going to the “grifter” or Zelensky.

    498. Tina says:

      This is alarming.

      It is not “endless”, it is not enough, and it is in OUR interest.

      Fortunately, the Putin lapdogs can whine all they want, aid to Ukraine is going to be increased, not decreased.

      Deal with it.

    501. JeffP says:

      504 I saw that. He understands the war for global dominance and control better than most. That’s why they had to take him out at the beginning of Trumps administration.

    502. Paul says:

      I think the pro-Putin crowd likes to exaggerate any depletion of our military. Ukraine is only a fraction of our full military expenditures. If there is major depletion it is a scandal that really is separate from Ukraine.

    503. Phil says:

      China is the absolute main threat to our national interest waaay more than Russia.

      That’s just a fact. Doesn’t mean we ignore Russia at all but China is the power capable of expansion far more than Putin’s Russia. Notice I said capable. Militarily and Economically and it’s not close….and militarily their military might continues to expand. The first time they send one of our aircraft carriers to the bottom of the sea maybe it will hit home.

    504. JeffP says:

      The .”restarting USSR” is not the plan. That would mean a war with NATO and WW 3.

      Putin and Russia nationalism has a much bigger vision than that. But you don’t really care to take the time to understand the difference….then you use derogatory names just like the Woke Commie Dems do.

    505. Tgca says:

      This is shameful and despicable!

      The Florida legislature has passed a bill that will relocate illegal immigrants that the US has processed and released that either are in or move to FL.

      The argument is that they put an undue burden on Floridians including crime increases.

      Do they plan to relocate Cubans too who tend to vote GOP or is it just people from the southern border who are more embraced by Dems?

      For years many cities in the US have tried to get rid of their homeless by OFFERING them money and bus tickets to other cities more tolerant of homelessness. But now we’re talking about targeting people from certain countries, generally people of color.

      I hope this is thrown out by federal courts.

      …and what gives Floreedah a right to ship their undesirables to other states of their choosing? What if other states ship them back or send Floreedah it’s criminals? This is playing with people, and using them as pawns.

      I agree it’s wrong what the US gubbermint is doing and states should sue and seek remedies for the impact states are experiencing, but creating an official state office where GOP political operatives will decide who stays and goes and herds them out of state is vile and disgusting, and reminiscent of something you expect from Nazi Germany and not the US.

      Living in Florida, I know there is still a lot of racism and bigotry here but you don’t expect it to come so blatantly from the GOP Legislature.

      This is a political stunt by DeSanctimonius and his right-wing supporters and will not reflect well across the US. This will define DeSanctimonius as a bigot nationally and rightfully so.

      This is inexcusable!

      Actually, I can believe.

      More reason to stop it in its tracks NOW.

    507. jason says:

      The .”restarting USSR” is not the plan. That would mean a war with NATO and WW 3.”

      Zzzzz… BS.

      Getting back Belarus, Ukraine, Moldova, and some of the stans would be a great start for the new USSR. In terms of territory/resources it would probably get back 80% of the old USSR.

      The resources in those countries will strengthen Russia to then pressure for more concessions.

    508. Phil says:

      The military limitations of the Russian military have become obvious to everyone by now. Finally gone are the scare tactic talking point of Russian aggression into NATO countries. You can advocate defending Ukraine without the BS argument that you are defending Ukraine as the way to prevent a Russian invasion of Poland or some other NATO country. Russia doesn’t have that capability, and everyone knows it…..most of all Putin. He would love for Russia to have that capability, but he doesn’t. People in hell want ice water.

    509. Tgca says:

      DeSanctimonius better hope there is no accident by one of these contractors the law allows them to hire to cattle undesirables out of Florida.

      Imagine a bus crash injuring or killing illegals that he authorized DEPORTED from Floreedah.

      I say if DeSanctimonius feels so strongly about this he has to get rid of the increasing number of Cubans landing on Florida beaches as well. Just this last week, groups of Cubans totaling 50 arrived illegally in Floreedah. It’s been an ongoing problem here.

      Should they be shipped to NYC? …or just the 70 Haitians that also arrived illegally last week via boats?

      This is going to backfire on the GOP.

      It’s one thing to offer people passage with promise to another state that will help assimilate them into the US and another thing to have a sanctioned gubbermint funded State DEPORTATION Office, forcing select people out of the state.

      What if they refuse to go? Will they be prosecuted?

      The law is very ambiguous.

    510. jason says:

      I think the pro-Putin crowd likes to exaggerate any depletion of our military.”

      There are like 500 excuses by the Putin stooges on why Ukraine should surrender.

      That is just one of them.

      If this piddly aid we are giving Ukraine (let’s face it this is peanuts… 51 tanks… wow) is making such a big difference in our arsenal then we were “depleted” long before Ukraine came along.

      And not everything provided is “state of the art”. Stinger missiles have been around since 1978.

      In any case, Raytheon got a $625 million contract for 1300 more Stingers to replenish the stock. They will be more modern and efficient than the ones given Ukraine.

    511. Tina says:

      They did flynn poorly. Obama fired him because flynn told him that he was not winning and that the Ccp were the threat.

      Not a good thing that Biden said the spy ballon incursion was insignificant.

      He used careless words to egg on Pooty poot by allowing for the limited incursion into Ukraine. I know some here want to ignore his statements.

    517. Phil says:

      I’m fine with the Abrams tanks going to the Ukraine. Several reasons. This is aid we can keep track of and know it’s going to the front lines. No graft or skimming of direct cash. Second, those tanks are actually effective in that kind of war. Finally, they won’t be depleting what we need to fight China. They wouldn’t be used in the coming battle of Taiwan anyway.

    518. Gordon Allen says:

      31 Abrams tanks will have virtually zero effect. That’s for show, and to goose the Europeans some.
      Tanks in congested, semi urban terrain are sitting ducks on a modern battlefield absent having overwhelming air superiority at their back.
      Which Ukraine does not have.

    519. Phil says:

      Agreed that the 31 tanks are mainly for show. They do have some effect although I agree that with no air cover they are going to be rather vulnerable to Russian air power. No doubt. They were decisive in the Gulf War but again, that was with no Iraqi air presence whatsoever.

    520. Gordon Allen says:

      #487. This is obvious, but to everyone who thinks not going back to the status quo of 2013-which will never happen any more than Putin’s 190,000 supermen could conquer Ukraine- is a “Ukraine Surrender” , their wish is to fight to the last Ukrainian from the comfort of their easy chair.
      Milley( I know) says the Joint Chiefs( and it’s intelligence) think Ukrainian casualties are not actually substantially lower than Russian casualties, which means per capita( to population) they are in fact much heavier.This is a good deal for Napoleon Zelensky( if Putin would take it.)
      China is our main threat across the spectrum of espionage, economics, political influence( here in the US), and military, and Zelensky’s dreams are totally unimportant at this time.

    521. Tgca says:

      FYI. Since Oct 2022, approximately 5,000 Cubans have come here illegally, a huge increase from the other 6,000 that came in the 1st 9 months of 2022 for a total of 11,000 in 13 months.

      Deporting Cubans out of state will have a detrimental impact on the GOP in Floreedah politics.

      It’s all about the optics! When Cubans in south Floreedah see this, expect a backlash.

      The MSM will broadcast this 24/7, as I hope they do because it’s a vile and disgusting law to pass.

      Expect other GOP politicians to distance themselves from Floreedah.

    522. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      *Russia WILL NOT agree to that unless they suffer some major defeats”

      The Russians have lost over a 100,000 military deaths. The number of wounded is much higher. Over a half a million young Russians males have fled Russia to avoid the draft. They have been pushed by Ukrainians out of about 40% of the original Ukrainian territory they occupied. They have been attacking a small Donbass city for many months now, and despite human wave attacks, they still have not taken it. The Wagner mercenary group can no longer get prisoners to join, because the prisoners know they will be killed.

      This doesn’t constitute a major defeat? Everyone assumed at the beginning of the invasion that Putin’s military would crush the Ukrainians in about two weeks.

      For a relatively low price, we are financing the destruction of the Russian military. It would be an act of total stupidity not to continue doing so.

    523. jason says:

      nd Zelensky’s dreams are totally unimportant at this time.”


      Is that in one of your stupid magazines or video games?

      Ukraine’s fight for survival is not about Zelensky.

      Ukraine is not a “dream”. It is a sovereign country of 40 million people being invaded by a despot.

    524. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      The Ukrainian military has taken a lot of casualties, but nowhere near what Russia has suffered. Mainly this is because Ukraine has fought mostly on the defensive. The Russians by contrast have made human wave attacks, and initially did not protect their troops from drone attacks. Then there is training and morale. A lot of the Russian troops have been poorly trained and badly lead. It is appalling how badly the Russian military command has been.

      The Ukraine is also getting volunteers from other countries. The newest wave:

      The General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine said on Monday that 20,000 foreign fighters had already applied to enlist into the foreign legion. GUR said that the volunteers were from 52 different countries, and were “mostly experienced fighters who have participated in many peacekeeping campaigns around the world.””

    525. Paul says:

      Time to give them air superiority then.

    526. Tgca says:


      Garbage? Have you read the law?

      They are putting in place an office to DEPORT people given federal gubbermint documentation to temporarily remain in the US. The bill allows them to apply this ANY state too, not only illegals in Floreedah.

      They have allocated $10M for this office and will be hiring contractors to facilitate the DEPORTATIONS.

      Do you agree that state personnel should remove those from the state when they have temporary federal authority to be in the US?

      Simple question, yes or no?

      Will they apply this to the 11,000 Cubans that arrived in Floreedah since Jan 2022?

      This is disgraceful! This is not how we do things in the US even when there are legitimate grievances not being satisfactorily addressed.

      DeSanctimonius is weaponizing laws to go after Disney, teachers, and now DOCUMENTED aliens. The GOP legislature even shot down an Dem amendment to protect green card holders. That means they can ship green card holders out of Floreedah.

      You can’t be against Dems weaponizing the DOJ and FBI but ok with DeSanctimonius weaponizing laws in Floreedah.

      This is dangerous precedent and RACIST! It will backfire on the GOP, as it should. This is not the 1950s where southern states tried to keep people of color in a box by passing unjust RACIST laws.

    527. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      If the United States had stood back and done nothing for the Ukraine, like it did in Afghanistan, don’t you think that would emboldened China further into attacking Taiwan? It would have shown again after Afghanistan that the U.S. was a paper tiger, and this time it was so regarding a more strategic country.

      If anything the U.S. and NATO’s support of Ukraine has discouraged China from attacked Taiwan. We have shown our dog can bite.

    528. jason says:

      This doesn’t constitute a major defeat?”

      No, it is merely failure to meet expectations, which is different.

      The Russian concept of “defeat” is not the same as ours. Russia has lost more men in a year than the US lost in a dozen years in Vietnam. Ten times more than the US lost in Iraq and Afghanistan.

      Here in the US such losses would be considered “defeat”. In Russia, they may have a different view. Maybe it is worth it because they are rebuilding Greater Russia.

      The Russians lost by their own account 8.6 million military deaths in WWII, but they celebrate the win. We think it is horrendous we lost 250k total Europe and Pacific.

      Total USSR dead including civilians in WWII was 27 million out of a population of about 190 million, about 14% of the population, roughly one in seven. 14% of the US population in 1945 would have meant 20 million dead, an unfathomable number.

      All relative.

    529. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      My hunch is in a month or two fighter jets are on the table. The Russians already know it’s a possibility.

      You contradict yourself. You usually support ILLEGAL immigration but now you’re for targeting them.

      The US federal gubbermint has the authority to remove ILLEGALS from the US and should. I agree with that! They should NOT catch and release them is my view but currently, unless they are overruled by the courts, they have that authority.

      At the same time, states should not have laws hunting down federally documented illegal aliens and DEPORTING them to other states because they don’t like a federal policy, especially using contractors to do this.

      That is RACIST! …and it harkens back to the southern laws against minorities of yesteryear.

      How is this different than southern states defying blacks the right to attend white schools after courts dismantled segregation in the 1950s?

      The fact that the Floreedah GOP even refused to exempt green card holders is very suspicious and concerning.

      So now the state of Floreedah is deciding who and who cannot stay in the US, regardless of US policy, and regardless of what state they’re located in.

      You whine when Dems try to pass discriminatory laws but you NOW embrace discriminatory laws from a Republican.

      I can’t wait until other GOPers, especially in northeast and Midwest states start piling on Floreedah for this, as they should.

      DeSanctimonius is channeling Pat Buchanan from 1992.

      I will be reaching out to Cuban-Anerican politicians in south Floreedah on this to ask them their position on this. Will they be in favor of DEPORTING 11,000 illegal Cubans who entered Floreedah in 2022. That is one question I will be putting forth to them.

      The EU and NATO countries are still not unified on how far to go in equipping Ukraine. NATO was created as a defensive alliance against the USSR. Everyone knows this in the EU. Zelenskyy left Brussels the other day with a 2 year plan to join EU and NATO. Not much in light of the crisis.

      As I have posted before they talk big have photo ops and deliver the bare minimum of what could really defeat Russia. NATO Fighter jets would bring us closer to WW 3.

      That is RACIST!”

      JeffP is really a pathological liar.

      Nobody is talking about NATO jets, we are talking about fighter jets to be flown by Ukrainian pilots not NATO.

      And of course, zzzzz, JeffP thinks any defensive aid given to Ukraine “brings us closer to WWIII”.

      There is only ONE thing that might have brought us closer to WWIII. Putin’s invasion of Ukraine.

      It’s funny how JeffP never mentions that.

    547. jason says:

      Ukraine should be accepted into the EU immediately.

    548. jason says:

      Joining NATO at the moment is not feasible without defined borders. The minute Ukraine joins NATO and Russian troops are within its borders it automatically subjects them to attack. It should have happened before the invasion. However, it is in the interest of NATO to weaken the Russians and the best way to do that is to keep supplying Ukraine with weapons and training and other intelligence and logistics support.

      “Former US Secretary of State Henry Kissinger argued on Tuesday that Ukrainian membership of NATO would be “appropriate” after peace has been secured.

      Speaking at the World Economic Forum via Zoom, the 99-year-old said that although he was against Ukraine joining NATO before the invasion, it was now a desired outcome. “Before this war I was opposed to the membership of Ukraine in NATO because I feared it would start exactly the process we are seeing now,” he said. But now, “the idea of a neutral Ukraine in these conditions is no longer meaningful.””

    555. jason says:

      So much for “Russian nationalism”…

      “DONBAS REGION, Ukraine — The soldier knelt in the snow, aimed a rocket launcher and fired in the direction of Russian troops positioned about 1 mile away. He was set up at a Ukrainian firing position and looked just like the other Ukrainian troops fighting south of the city of Bakhmut in one of the most brutal theaters of the war.

      But he and his comrades are not Ukrainian. They are soldiers in a Ukrainian military unit made up entirely of Russians who are fighting and killing their own countrymen.

      They have taken up arms against Russia for a variety of reasons: a sense of moral outrage at their country’s invasion, a desire to defend their adopted homeland of Ukraine or because of a visceral dislike of Russia’s president, Vladimir Putin. And they have earned enough trust from Ukrainian commanders to take their place among the forces viciously fighting the Russian military.

      “A real Russian man doesn’t engage in such an aggressive war, won’t rape children, kill women and elderly people,” said one Russian fighter with the military call sign Caesar, ticking off atrocities committed by Russian soldiers that motivated him to leave his native St. Petersburg and fight for Ukraine. “That’s why I don’t have remorse. I do my job, and I’ve killed a lot of them.”

      COW THEORIES ON the balloon air incursions over U.S.

      1. Chiner is sending up various sized balloons with varying sized payloads to se ho small they can go before the U.S. cannot detect them.

      First one was a big a$$ed balloon with payload the size of 3 busses.

      Another one with payload the size of a small car.
      One over MT that was spotted by radar but interceptor planes could not find was smaller?

      BTW, what ever happened to the other Chiner balloon transiting over Latin America?

      Cow thinks the ChiComs are trying to figgur out how small a payload they can put up there that will avoid detection.

      2. Chiner is eventually planning to launch enough balloons with EMP weapon devices so that they have 3 or 4 over the U.S. at any one time.

      When they invade Taiwan, they will all U.S. and tell them to stand down and not get involved or else they will detonate the EMPs and fry power grid and all electronics in U.S. and create chaos in U.S. for months/years.


      3. OR…perhaps the China balloon assault is to designed to DROP their payloads in remote parts of U.S. and months later the cylinders (carrying EMP or dirty bombs, or biological weapons or whatever) be activated. The case will pop open, another balloon will be inflated and the payload will lift up over the U.S. and be ready to go into action on their command.


      4 OR…perhaps the Rooshans are behind the latest two smaller balloons and are trying to either cause mischief of their own (See #1, #2 #3 above) or else trying to get U.S. and China into a war to take U.S. military supplies off the table in Ukraine.


      Comments are welcomed.

      This is a terrible escalation.

      Britain and France support providing fighter jets for Ukraine.

      “Britain, which less than a fortnight ago appeared to rule out sending either of its active models of warplane, was the first stop and Prime Minister Rishi Sunak welcomed his counterpart from Kyiv with a pledge to train Ukrainian pilots to fly Nato-compatible aircraft.

      After Mr Zelensky thanked the UK “in advance” for sending ”powerful English planes”, he and the prime minister were photographed wearing fighter pilot helmets, in what was widely seen as a nod towards London’s intentions. Mr Sunak also said he had ordered his defence secretary to inquire as to which jets the UK could feasibly supply from its fleets of Typhoons and F-35s.

      On Thursday, the Ukrainian president headed to Paris, where he met French president Emmanuel Macron and German president Olaf Scholz. France had earlier signalled a willingness to supply jets, while Germany had rejected Kyiv’s pleas and criticised what he called a “constant competition to outbid each other when it comes to weapons systems”.”

    569. jason says:

      You Putin sycophants have to decide on a coherent narrative.

      On one hand, Putin is a harmless prankster just up to a little mischief in Ukraine. He would not harm a fly and his military is weak and innefective.

      On the other hand, we have to avoid angering him because he is very powerful and evil and thus we have to let him invade and conquer anything he wants.

      Maybe you Putin lapdogs should have a conference to sort it out.

      No, don’t worry, take all the time you want.

    570. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      579. Ukraine will never be a member of NATO. It’s the red line.

      It’s coming. Before Putin goes bonkers in response, am sure the Russian military will send someone to put a bullet in his head. The paranoid little man is reported by many sources to be in very bad health.

      However, if Putin totally withdraws from Ukraine, and agrees to demilitarize the border, am sure Ukraine will agree not to join NATO for the time being.

      I lived with a Russian once. He had even served in the Russian military. He used to make leading comments like JeffP’s: “You probably don’t believe this but Putins intentions are far more evil than you think.” Ok, give us a hint.

    573. Phil says:

      Putin is, of course, not a “harmless prankster.” His military is also not “weak”but conventionally he is extremely limited as the last year has clearly shown. Too limited to pose a realistic military threat to Europe unless he wants to get what’s left of his military decimated. Nuclear wise he could do massive damage, but he can’t use his nuclear arsenal without committing suicide. He was counting on Ukraine surrendering without a fight. One that didn’t happen he was screwed.

      China, on the other hand, is the genuine threat. They would give us all we can handle in the Pacific. Taiwan would be a blood bath for both side with the result in total doubt.

      China scares the hell out of me. Russia? No.

      Do you really believe that GOP is going to target Cubans in Floreedah? If they did that, they’d lose a large majority of current Cuban voters just like CA lost Latino voters under Pete Wilson after he targeted illegal immigrants in a perceived harsh and unsympathetic manner, and the CA GOP has never recovered from that as Latinos fled the GOP.

      Any attack on Cubans in Floreedah, legal or illegal, by a GOP politician is pretty much a death sentence and a pox on the GOP.

      The latest data I could find is from 2019 reports with 770K illegals in Floreedah, and about 50% of them are from Mexico and Central America, not likely to assimilate to the GOP. Another 10% from the Caribbean, mostly Haiti and Cuba. About 30% from South America, and outside Venezuela, probably must of these will not be rushing to the GOP either.

      The biggest countries of origin of illegals in Florida are Mexico (by far), Venezuela, Guatemala, and Honduras but keep in mind these are from 2019 reports that were put together from surveys gathered in years prior to 2019.

      We know we’ve seen a recent influx from Cuba and Haiti the last 2 years with much more expected, as well as an influx from Central America since Biden took office.

      So unless the GOP is going after illegal Cuban immigrants, 11,000 alone the last year (about 15% of total cumulative illegals from the Carribean), I would say this GOP policy is directed at certain groups and their immediate descendants they doubt will vote GOP in the future.

      This is all about politics and grandstanding using poor immigrants as bait in their disagreements with the feds.

      I think that is disastrous policy.

      It’s very Pat Buchanan approach to addressing illegal immigration.

    579. Tgca says:


      In addition, I went and looked back at party support of Prop 187, also called Save Our State initiative in CA, as if that name was not insulting to CA Latinos.

      Over 60% of white non-Hispanics supported it while less than 30% of Hispanics supported it.

      They was back when GOP were still elected to statewide offices and even controlled CA Congress.

      Oddly enough, as I have mentioned many times in the past, AA also supported Prop 187 by a little over 50% but then later their memories failed them as they referred to it as racist.

      I was living in CA at the time and remember reading stories from AA leaders that illegals from Mexico were stealing AA jobs. As if most AA were working picking crops and menial jobs in restaurants.

      594. By supplying weaponry to a country willing to fight aggressively like Ukraine, we get to observe how well various weapons systems work. In the Ukraine; we’re observing both ours and Russian systems. Frankly, Russia is showing itself to be a second rate military power, with a population that does not like war. What percentage of young Russian males would have fled Russia if Putin had not gone into a panic and closed his borders. As it is, the estimates are about 500,000 draft age males fled.

    581. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      As far as China, I would place tactical nuclear weapons in Taiwan. Let China know any fleet they send across the straits to invade Taiwan will be vaporized. China does not have much of a naval warfare history. An invasion across the straits is a very difficult military operation.

      I was strongly opposed to the invasion of Iraq, and the extended occupation of Afghanistan; likewise I see no reason for U.S. troops in Ukraine or Taiwan. Provide them weapons and let them defend themselves.

    582. Phil says:

      No. No American troops in Taiwan….but there would be no avoiding direct naval engagement. The Chinese would have to be prevented from establishing beachheads on the Taiwanese coast. Their invasion force would be most vulnerable as they tried to cross the strait. That is where we would do the real damage. The question would be how much damage they could do to our carrier groups. We just don’t know the answer to that. No one knows the outcome of a Chinese invasion of Taiwan. It could go either way. One thing we couldn’t afford to do is to just sit out Chinese aggression towards Taiwan. I’m not convinced a Biden administration wouldn’t do just that. They are so pathetically weak.

    583. Gordon Allen says:

      The only reason I don’t support US troops in Taiwan is that I don’t think that is where they are needed. The Taiwanese can defend their own beaches.

      What is needed is for US subs to attack all the bases in China supporting the invasion with cruise missiles, and US naval and air power destroy the Chinese ships carrying troops to Taiwan.

      Troops on the ground in Taiwan are not needed.

      Don’t forget the information from post 494. The U.S is providing target information for HIMARS by satellite from the U.S. Likewise, missiles and drones could be targeted and launched at a Chinese invasion force from far away. This ain’t your grandaddy’s war anymore.

      Again, more weaponization of laws by Floreedah to target those it disagrees with now that the FL legislature has officially voted on party lines to dissolve Disney’s self-governing district it held since 1967 because DeSanctimonius got his feelings hurt.

      This VINDICTIVE legislation was done ONLY because Disney senior management fought the Floreedah GOP over woke issues and then promised to withhold campaign donations to Floreedah GOP politicians. There was no concern over re ok’ing this status BEFORE that.

      I disagree with Disney on all the woke BS but legislators should not weaponize gubbermint for their personal benefit.

      DeSanctimonius and the Floreedah GOP is doing EXACTLY what select Dems are doing at the state level (think NY and GA) and the DOJ and FBI, using their power to target and go after those it disagrees with.

      This is the epitome of corrupt gubbermint and arrogance of politicians and VERY dangerous to democracy. I would bet the majority of Floridians would disagree with it if they were educated on the facts.

      DeSanctimoniys is no different than Newsom or CA Dems. Exactly the same, only opposite parties.

      Why would any national company that has to balance cultural issues among employees in many states want to come and do business in Floreedah knowing if you upset someone in Tallahassee, they’ll go after your business?

      This is what the AG did in NY and now we have the GOP doing the same in Floreedah.

      There is no difference whatsoever. Absolutely NONE!

      This is why I believe DeSanctimonius is NOT fit for president. He would weaponize gubbermint agencies just like Dems to target those he does not like, especially DOJ and FBI.

      The legislation was introduced on Monday. It passed the state House of Representatives on Thursday on a vote of 82-31, with 81 Republicans and one Democrat voting “yes.” All 31 “no” votes came from Democrats. The state Senate approved the bill on Friday on a party-line vote, with 26 Republicans in favor and nine Democrats opposed. It now goes to DeSantis for his signature.

      Jester Jadon thinks DEPORTING Cubans to NYC is going to be popular among Cuban Americans in Floreedah. REALLY?

      You evidently have no clue of Latinos in Floreedah.

      You do realize there is a whole network of groups in Miami-Dade and Broward that help those escaping Cuba settle and start a new life here, 11,000 in the last year. That’s nearly 3% of Miami’s population seeking refuge in ONE YEAR ALONE

      I know because I donate clothing and house supplies to them. These groups ask for household items and clothing to help people who come here with nothing but the clothes on their backs to try to settle into a home environment.

      Same with Haitians. There is networking to help those escaping settle in south Floreedah

    599. jason says:

      Tgca knows the Disney situation has NOTHING to do with opinions or disagreements or even campaign donations.

    601. jason says:

      The bill, HB 9B, passed 26-9 in the GOP-controlled state Senate while the Republican-controlled House approved the plan Thursday in a 82-31 vote. The bill now heads to DeSantis’ desk for signing.”

      Are you sure the Disney bill is unpopular?

    602. Tgca says:


      I’m sure that’s what over 60% of non-Hispanics thought when they supported Prop 187 in CA in the mid 90s when Republicans were still competitive in CA elections.

      I lived there in the 90s. I saw it change from a moderate center left state to a radical leftist state, the reason I left.

      For years the CA Dem congressional advantage was from 0 to 7 seats on 54 to 55 total seats. Now the Dems generally have on average a 30 seat advantage.

      That did not happen by itself. It’s because the GOP alienated the Latino vote.

      I suspect DEPORTING Latinos from Floreedah will have the same effect in Floreedah over time too with 27% of the state now Latino.

      CA had around 26% Hispanic population in 1990 which is what Floreedah has today too.

    603. jason says:

      I think these are the types of initiatives that will help DeSantis in both the primaries and the GE.

      Floreedah’s Latino population has grown each recent decade:

      2030___30% (projected)

      Very similar to the Latino growth in CA:

      The GOP risks it’s hold on Floreedah by targeting Latinos for DEPORTATION to other states.

      The reason I approve of deporting illegals to other states is that it is too easy for these states to advocate for open borders without paying any of the costs.

    612. Tgca says:



      But theres a difference between being against open borders and bussing Latinos out of state. The vast majority of illegals to Floreedah are Latinos.

      You think FL Cuban Americans are going to be fine with 11,000 Cubans be bussed to NYC or DC, given the latest example of illegal Cubans to reach US waters?

      It is inevitable an event will occur, probably like an accident or demonstration that could put illegals at risk during transportation.

      That will not be taken lightly by the public.

      This is a DANGEROUS precedent and bad optics for the GOP. DeSanctimonius looks more like Pat Buchanan than Ronald Reagan with this plan.

      Prop 187 was ENORMOUSLY popular with the GOP in CA. How did that work out?

    613. Tgca says:


      I totally agree on the hypocrisy of those states but this is not the way to go about trying to resolve it.

      Would you be ok if NYC released its prison population with bus tickets and cash to FL? Castro did that in the early 80s.

      Tit for tat can be played in this game with horrific consequences.

      It’s wrong and immature.

    614. jason says:

      Ok so you admit it is a popular law among Floridians.

      I agree.

      I will worry about it becoming unpopular when Florida becomes California.

    615. jason says:

      DeSanctimonius looks more like Pat Buchanan than Ronald Reagan with this plan”


      You hate Ronald Reagan, and your silly isolationist views are exactly the same as Pat Buchanan’s.

      You really are a clown.

    616. Tgca says:


      You know there is no such polling on this.

      Take a poll in Miami-Dade among Latinos and ask them if the 11,000 Cubans that came to Floreedah illegally in 2022 should be rounded up and DEPORTED to NYC.

      Watch what answer you will get. It won’t be what you think.

    617. jason says:

      BS question.

      You oppose the law, I support it.

      I say the majority of Floridians will support it.

      Of course there will be polling on it.

    618. jason says:

      ask them if the 11,000 Cubans that came to Floreedah illegally in 2022 should be rounded up and DEPORTED to NYC.”

      Zzzzz…. tell me when that actually happens.

    619. Tgca says:


      I don’t hate Reagan. I admired him greatly in my yoot and was one of the very few in my generation that defended him.

      I just don’t believe ANY politician should be put on a pedestal, whether it’s Reagan by the conservatives or JFK by the lefties.

      I’ve criticized Trump as well when warranted.

      Trump was obnoxious and said STOOPID things at times deemed racist but his policies were not racist.

      DeSanctimonius is signing legislation that will be deemed racist because it vastly targets people of color.

      DEPORTING Latinos from a state with nearly 30% Latino population is not going to be popular with American Latinos just as DEPORTING DACA is not popular with Latinos, by 88% margin.

      Once they’re here and have federal rights to be here, that changes the ball game and having a fat white guy like DeSanctimonius DEPORT them out if his state leaves the impression it is RACIST.

    620. Tgca says:


      That’s the conundrum though.

      If he signs the FL legislation, do you approve of him DEPORTING the 11,000 illegal Cubans that came to Floreedah in 2022 or do you think only Haitians, Mexicans, and Central Americans, who make up most of the illegals to FL should be DEPORTED from the state?

      Do you think courts will allow Cubans to stay while others are DEPORTED?

      If that happens, the DOJ will need to step in and I hope they do.

      This bill, like the Disney bill, is ALL about politics and not in the best interest of Floridians by weaponizing laws against certain groups.

    621. jason says:

      do you think only Haitians, Mexicans, and Central Americans, who make up most of the illegals to FL”


      I thought there were only Cubans, because that is all you talk about.

      Let’s see who actually gets deported.

      I fully support this, and so does the legislature and from you parsing and dodging, the FL citizens do too. Probably the Cubans do too.

    622. jason says:

      “DEPORTING DACA is not popular with Latinos, by 88% margin.”

      It’s not popular with just about everyone, including me.

    623. jason says:

      Putin toadies hardest hit.

      “The Main Intelligence Directorate of Ukraine’s Defence Ministry believes that Russia is not ready for the second wave of mobilisation and will postpone it.

      Source: Vadym Skibitskyi, representative of the military intelligence of Ukraine, during an interview with The Wall Street Journal, as referenced by the press service of the Main Intelligence Directorate

      Quote from Skibitskyi: “They are preparing for the second wave of mobilisation, but we believe that they will postpone it because they have not overcome all the difficulties they experienced during the first wave.

      They were not ready for such a large-scale mobilisation then, and they are not ready now.”

    624. jason says:

      Once they’re here and have federal rights to be here”

      They are still here. Just not in FL.

    631. jason says:

      Paul is the father of the UFOs?

      Damm, and we thought he was a mentally ill moron.

    632. Tgca says:


      My whole point about Cubans was because once the FL MINORITY DEPORTATION BUREAU starts operating, it will have to deport illegal minorities out of state. If they refuse to DEPORT Cubans, but DEPORT all others, they’ll have the courts and DOJ all over them, as they should, and they will lose.

      If they DEPORT Cubans to keep face, the GOP can say good-bye to Cuban support. Under no circumstances will the FL Cuban community accept illegal Cubans being used as props and DEPORTED to NYC or other Dem states.

      So either way, the GOP is in a pickle with this unnecessary and STOOPID legislation.

      The FL GOP will have problems with the growing Latino population in FL just like CA did with Prop 187 which saw CA become basically a one-party non-competitive state at nearly all levels.

      That’s like saying AA can still go to school, they just can’t go to our white schools.

      You should know better!

      I’m Latino and HATE what’s going on at the border and think we should close it and go through the right channels.

      But rounding people up already here and bussing them out of your neighborhood like cattle is not good policy or optics.

      GOP politicians will turn on DeSanctimonius. Expect more of this.

      I don’t care for Sununu but he is right. GOP trying to be gubbermint authoritarians like Dems targeting woke businesses with legislation for their cultural beliefs is a losing proposition for democracy.

      You can debate them and challenge them and try to influence people away from them, but going after them with laws is authoritarian.

      So if DeSanctimonius were to become POTUS would he sic the gubbermint on the MSM because he does not like their criticism of him?

    644. jason says:

      But I must admit Tgca has the MSM and Democratic talking points on the Golden Calf just as he has all of Putin’s and the Russian State media talking points.

      The fact he is now aligned with the opinions of Sununu just like he is aligned with the opinions of Tucker Carlson are all you need to know.

      MSM toady on the Golden Calf and Putin toady on Ukraine.

      Sad for the clown.

    645. Tgca says:


      So then you agree the 11,000 Cubans that were apprehended coming into the US illegally the last year should have been bussed to NYC and other Dem states by the FL GOP gubbermint.

      Good to know.

      You know nothing about Floreedah politics evidently.

      You’re making the same arguments the CA GOP did in 1994 because it was WILDLY popular with the base. How did that work out?

      Ironically, I spoke with a White non-Latino Republican male friend in Floreedah today. He disagrees with you and thinks it looks horrible and wishes DeSanctimonius and the GOP did not focus on these things so much.

    646. Tgca says:


      Tucker Carlson is more aligned with conservatives than you’ll ever be.

      You’re more aligned with Hollywood when it comes to Zelenskyy, Illegal immigration, ABORTION, China, etc.

    647. jason says:

      More than 5,000 pregnant Russian women have entered Argentina in recent months, including 33 on a single flight on Thursday, officials say.

      The latest arrivals were all in the final weeks of pregnancy, according to the national migration agency.

      It is believed the women want to make sure their babies are born in Argentina to obtain Argentinian citizenship.

      The number of arrivals has increased recently, which local media suggests is a result of the war in Ukraine.”

    652. Tgca says:


      As usual, more lies when you can’t win an argument.

      I NEVER supported rent control, especially since I was a landlord myself for years. What I support is reasonable laws to protect tenants being evicted on short notice (30 days) simply due to greedy landlords without the gubbermint stepping in with any public assistance.

      Unlike you, I do not have a F*CK the POOR attitude. I remember where I came from and try to give back. Evidently, you don’t after getting handouts from Americans for years.

      Floreedah has a growing homeless problem. I see it daily driving around. Worst than I’ve ever seen it before. The politicians in Floreedah have done NOTHING substantial to help people who live week to week but have watched their rents increase 30% and forced to move to unsafe neighborhoods because greedy landlords want to kick them out ASAP to rent to upperclass liberals from NYC who moved to Floreedah to work remotely. MORE YOU HAVE IN COMMON WOTH THE LEFT.

      I always admired Reagan but I don’t treat him like a God like you do. I accept he was a very good president but also had some blunders, like most presidents. I’m consistent, you’re not.

      You’re just pissed because I point out you have the same positions on key issues that Hollywood has a matter of truth.

      Big thought was the collapse of the eagles defense.

      They let the chiefs score on every 2nd half possession.

      They were gashed.

    660. Bitterlaw says:

      Turnovers kill. The Eagles offense out scored the Chiefs offense. But defensive points count just as much. Sucks but true. Jalen Hurts is going to get a huge deal. He earned it. Even so, the Eagles are in good shape for next season. The other NFC playoff teams have problems going forward. Tampa? No QB. Dallas? Prescott is a turnover machine. Giants? Jones is suspect at QB. 49ers? No QB or Backup QB. Vikings? Always build good record in weak NFC North then choke. Seattle? More QB issues.

      Eagles coach was seen on camera during National Anthem with tears running down face. Good man and coach.

      Comical. Only at HHR.

    665. Tgca says:


      Of course Phil!

      Don’t you know most Eagle fans are also members of or support Antifa and BLM?

    666. Tgca says:

      Ha! Ha!

      In ranking worst football fans, Eagles ranking 1st of course, this is a polite description from nearly a dozen years ago explaining what trashy, ignorant, losers, POS, Eagles fans are and why it’s no surprise Philly is the most crime-ridden vile big city in the US.

      Do you really expect scum from a city like Philly to behave like civil human beings when they’re more comfortable burning down the city and assaulting law enforcement, all while being cheered on?

      Philadelphia is a blue-collar place that breeds a strong sense of identity. Their fans wear that identity on their sleeves and manifest it as emotional and mean to the extreme.

    669. Tina says:

      158 yards given up rushing.

      Look at the chief’s drive to start the second half (mostly rushing).

      Mahomes passing yardage was not that high.

      Eagles should have won.

    670. Gordon Allen says:

      I had no dog in the fight, but that late holding call on the Eagles was marginal, especially at that point in the game.
      If that was a penalty every DB in the NFL would be called for a penalty on virtually every play. With the holding, bumping and elbow contact allowed NFL DB’s i’d have been an All American DB in the 60’s, where past the line of scrimmage 3 yards if you touched the receiver it was called.
      Man, they have to be consistent.

    671. Bitterlaw says:

      Did you watch the game or just follow it on Twitter? 30+ of the rushing yards were by Mahomes on one run. The Eagles should have won the game but they lost because their pass rush did not get to Mahomes. The Chiefs defense was worse and gave up 35 points but they won because of the fumble recovery for a TD.

      If you did watch, Tgca will call you woke.

    672. jason says:

      I used to be critical of a lot of the officiating when I followed pro football.

      So I checked out the play Neville Allen mentioned this morning.

      I have to agree, Mickey Mouse call at that point of the game, basically deciding it. That type of “hold” happens somewhere on every play and it in no way impeded the receiver from catching the ball, overthrown anyway.

      Without that call probably the Chiefs would have scored a FG and the Eagles would have had time to tie or win.

      I didn’t watch the rest of the game, coaches like to say hey many other plays could have decided the game, so there is that.

      But yeah, horrible call. If the Broncos had lost a SB on that call I would be have been pissed.

    673. jason says:

      Too bad you did not bet on the Eagles all season. 16-4 season including playoff blowout wins and 3 point loss in Super Bowl.”

      Had no impact on the game.

      A bigger impact was Just Hurts fumble that resulted in a td

      Sorry, Bl, 158 yards given up via rushing. Mahomes numbers were just a tiny amount.

      Immigrants are appalled by the crime and drug use in NYC, and are fleeing to Canada. Maybe Americans will wake up and realize their “progressive” cities have become unlivable:

      “Multiple Latin American asylum seekers told reporters that the alarming and blatant drug use coupled with the ongoing homeless crisis has left migrants feeling hopeless and searching for answers. In response to the complaints being levied by migrants, as well as taxpaying residents, the mayor has funded bus tickets to transport migrants across the U.S.- Canada border.

      “Those who are seeking to go somewhere else — not that we’re pushing or forcing — if they’re seeking to go somewhere else, we are helping in the re-ticketing process,” Mayor Adams said on Monday in an interview with Fox 5.

      “I wanted to live in New York because I thought it would be a better future for my daughters,” said Susy Sanchez Solzarno, 33, from Peru. “But as the days went by, I saw insecurity, many homeless people, many people who shout and are disrespectful, and many people on drugs. … I am going to Canada for the safety and future of my girls.”

      Not trying per se to be political, but more demographic. And yes Fort Myers has the largest population, although i wouldn’t classify it as a large City.

      Tina. Beg to differ. In the NFL the DB’s ALWAYS hold/ they call it “hand fighting”!!. Generally unless it really impedes the receiver’s “progress”, or while the ball is in the air( without trying for an interception/going for the Ball) it isn’t called.
      From what I saw the DB didn’t impede the receiver at all, and no catchable ball was in the Air.And late in a SB that was tied??
      Nope, bad call( and full disclosure I don’t like the Eagles).

      Miami is a GOP city. It has a GOP mayor, who has presidential aspirations, who won twice with over 75% of the vote.

      Yeah! I get it! Old people like you don’t generally do illegal drugs though I expect like many big city partiers, you old people have some drug use in common like Via-Gra but I digress.

      My point is Floreedah, like many other major areas have drug problems.

      It’s not a Dem or GOP issue, it’s a people issue. Many conservatives have been addicted to drugs too, though usually not hard stuff like crack and heroin. Drugs don’t discriminate by political party.

      South Floreedah is also the drug Rehab Capitol in the US.

    691. jason says:

      Yep, Tina is wrong, that kind of “holding” is present on just about every play and not usually called, especially when it is crucial to the outcome of the game. It had no relevance to the receiver catching the ball and did not impede him in any way. I don’t really care about the Eagles (except that I bet on them) but they got screwed on that call.

    692. Tina says:

      Gordon I don’t disagree. But under the rules that is a hold. The player even admitted to the hold. There are actually several good pics of the holding.

      The eagles fell apart in the second half because their defense collapsed. They could not stop anything.

      The Babylon Bee provided Super Bowl news that other media outlets failed to cover:

      “Super Bowl Flyover Featuring All Female Pilots Running 20 Minutes Late”

      “Philadelphians Preemptively Burn City Down In Preparation For Winning Or Losing Super Bowl”

      “Super Bowl Ruined As Air Force Keeps Shooting Footballs Out Of The Sky”

    694. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      706. In California cities the homeless are everywhere. In nice neighborhoods, suburbs, beaches, parks. The vast majority are on narcotics; many are mentally deranged (mostly a result of drug use) and they are increasingly assaulting people. An little is being done to counter it.

    695. Tgca says:


      Same in Floreedah around major cities. Tampa, Orlando, Fort Lauderdale, Miami, etc.

      Homeless has gotten worse here the last few years. Nothing is done about it at state or local levels. Shameful!

      Floreedah ranks with 3rd largest homeless population in U.S. and if you look at it per capita it’s 3rd also in larger states and #1 in GOP states too. But these stats are from 2020 so it’s probably worse now given the housing crisis in Floreedah experienced in 2021 which forced many out of their dwellings.

      Of course, some in gated communities will deny this because they haven’t ran over any sleeping homeless with their golf carts on their golf courses so as far as they’re concerned, there’s no homeless problem in Floreedah.

    696. Gordon Allen says:

      Fort Lauderdale sure is drug rehab center. I personally know of several who rehabed over there.
      Apparently you never leave the dens of Broward County.
      You absolutely NEVER see the homeless/ drug users here like in LA,SanFran,NY etc,and our crime rate is quite low.
      Probably why tourists flock here( too many by my lights) even after a huge Hurricane, and move here in droves from Blue States.
      Since you hate it here my suggestion: pack up your bags and be one of the few who leave here to go to Blue States. We’d have the benefit of being minus one more Blue voter.

    697. Tgca says:


      Ha! HA!

      The guy who refuses to leave his gated community and gets his confederate magazines delivered to him accusing others of being local recluses.

      Boy! Gordy is one STOOPID azz Bish.

      He doesn’t understand the meaning of big cities.

      Of course many small communities are safer, including in blue states with some of the safest communities in the country, more so than Floreedah but that’s not we were talking about.

      We were talking about an increasing homeless problem in general grandpa. Floreedah ranking very high on the list.

      By the way, Tampa area (Hillsborough/Pinellas counties) has higher homeless rate than Broward/Dade/Palm Beach counties so spare me your hatred of southeast Floreedah metro area because you can’t stand Latinos and Blacks.

      We know you don’t like to leave your gated community full of old white David Duke supporters but it’s no reason not to get your facts correct at least.

    698. Tgca says:

      Gordy will not be happy.

      Biden forcing public housing in small town America and denying federal funding to those not complying.

      They think poor should be able to enjoy the same amenities as Gordy, minus the Confederate magazines of course.

      The Biden administration announced Jan. 19 that it will require all towns across the U.S. to submit “Equity Plans” showing how they will make it possible for low-income people to live there by providing affordable housing, transportation and other resources.

      “I never supported illegal immigration.”

      -I agree with jason, he has never supported illegal immigration…..he just refuses to build a wall which would help stop them, and also joins his Democratic counterparts in refusing to enforce existing law while claiming the unenforced laws are ineffective.

      Of course, when the Democrats want “newer, comprehensive” gun laws, he is against those (as am I), while insisting that current law is fine.

    700. Tgca says:


      Oh stop it NYC. STOP trying to stir up chit.

      We all know Jester Jadon is for ILLEGAL immigration, ABORTION, corrupt commies, and pretty much is in lock step with Hollywood on many policies.

      That’s his prerogative.

      So far Elon Musk isn’t beholden to the DAVOs/WEF. Who are ordering the western countries global agenda.. He is another no compromise 1st Amendment classic liberal with a backbone. I sure hope he stays that way. I will take someone like him over a compromising RINO.

    703. JeffP says:

      723. You really have to wonder sometimes WTF is going on. With Biden in office. It’s just a matter of months and China will take Taiwan. It’s all part of their empire plan just like Ukraine is to Russia.

    704. JeffP says:

      One more interesting note on Musk. He shared a private box at the SB with Rupert Murdoch. Newscorp holds a big influence on the GOP primary.

    705. NYCmike says:

      As long as Musk isn’t hanging out with the Murdoch sons and/or their wives, he should be ok.

      Once those snowflakes are around, people start melting.

    706. JeffP says:

      This is reality NOT pro Russia. When all these are in sync and promoting the same agenda I know it’s not good for the Ukrainians people or the USA.

      The globalists of the EU, US government, corporate capital (BlackRock, Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan & the rest), the arms industry, the mainstream media – all demanding that Hungary bend to their will & intensify the war in Ukraine.

      Viktor Orbán:
      ‘We want a ceasefire & peace talks’.

    707. Bitterlaw says:

      Maybe Viktor should ask Putin to stop attacking Ukraine. Immediate ceasefire.

    708. Tina says:

      Jeff what is happening ?

      Someone saw the ccp spy plane and reported it. Biden shot it down after 6 days of spying.

      Milley and Biden concluded that it was not a threat and not likely intentional.

      We are becoming a turd world country.

      But fear not more money to the grifter and more illegals. And maybe more ccp spies for the uni party.

    709. Tina says:

      Very alarming if true.

    711. JeffP says:

      I sure hope the Ukrainians hold the front line because we have given or pledged $196 Billion according to Faux News. I had $146 billion but who’s counting.

      Because if not.. I don’t think Black Rock and JP Morgan Chase are going to get their money (our tax money) to rebuild the country and eastern Ukraine will be utterly destroyed because Putin doesn’t give a sh*t. That’s a huge transfer of wealth to someone either way.

    712. JeffP says:

      Orban is the Trump of the EU. They hate him. He isn’t a friend of Russia either. Samantha Powers is on the ground in Hungry now…she is bad news. Check this out.

    713. JeffP says:

      729 Orban is popular and won re-election. He has zero sway outside of Hungry. I am afraid it is way too late and Putin is going to completely destroy eastern Ukraine. If he doesn’t succeed now he will try again I am afraid.

    714. JeffP says:

      730 The level of incompetence is staggering. Kirby seemed befuddled at the WH press briefing today. Senator Johnson said we have the B team in charge. The cast of West Wing could do better.

    715. Bitterlaw says:

      JeffP is afraid for Ukraine but opposes aid to Ukraine because it might really be a nefarious conspiracy by every group including the Illuminati, Bilderbergs, Knights Templar, Free Masons, etc.

    716. JeffP says:

      737…LOL…there is nothing secret about what is happening in plain sight.

    717. Bitterlaw says:

      I don’t dance. You support military aid to Ukraine to drive the Russian killers out or you don’t.

    718. JeffP says:

      737 Yes I oppose more aid to Ukraine because we can’t afford it. I oppose offensive weapons as it could lead to WW 3. I oppose helping any country that is corrupt and doesn’t protect 1st amendment rights. I oppose supporting a war the WEF is pushing. So what?

    719. JeffP says:

      A peace agreement was the only pathway to stop the brutality inflicted on the Ukrainian people. That is what I am for.

    720. Bitterlaw says:

      So your “fear for Ukraine” is empty words and you accept more death and destruction there. Own it.

    721. Bitterlaw says:

      Maybe they should not use missiles. Didn’t they watch Top Gun?

    722. JeffP says:

      742 I understand a peace agreement is lollipops and song written by John Lennon now. I am hoping and praying the Ukrainians can hold their positions and force peace talks. That is the best case scenario. If the EU wants to send them tanks and jets have at it. But the US has done enough and know country is going to bomb Russia into submission and every world leader knows it.

    723. JeffP says:

      *no country is going to bomb Russia into submission…

    724. JeffP says:

      745 If true that’s good news. It will help lead to peace talks.

    725. JeffP says:

      I guess I should clarify…I meant bomb Russia on their own land.

    726. Bitterlaw says:

      Peace treaty means surrender by Ukraine at this point. Just admit that is what you want.

    727. JeffP says:

      749 It would be looked at by some as surrender…but It shouldn’t be outright…the Ukrainians have earned many things in their favor…It would depend on the terms for Ukraine…their best negotiation position so far was a couple months ago after the counter offensive made so much progress. My perspective on terms are inline with what I have heard others talk about. If the Russians are getting slaughtered in the beginning of this offensive who knows where that might lead.

      I am getting a lot more concerned about China personally.
