Democrat Now Leads Gov Race in Mississippi

    The damage Donald Trump has done to the Republican Party and their electoral prospects has spread to the bright-red state of Mississippi where even their incumbent Governor might be in trouble of keeping this seat in GOP hands later this year according to a new poll from Mississippi Today and Tulchin Research.

    GOVERNOR – MISSISSIPPI (Tulchin Research)
    Brandon Presley (D) 47%
    Tate Reeves (R-inc) 43%

    This poll was done January 21-25 among 500 registered voters,

      Interesting poll for sure. Whoever they are.

    2. NYCmike says:

      How in G-D’s name does this Mississippi poll in any way reflect on Trump?

      Trump got 57% in 2020, and 57% in 2016 in Mississippi. Total votes for Trump increased by over 50K in 2020, similar as Hillary to Biden.

      Wissing, back up your comment with anything, or did the dog eat your homework?

      That commentary is pathetic, and is the latest example of how bad the TDS is.

      Agreed. Here are some of the Tulchin Research clients including the DCCC, ACLU and the Southern Poverty Law Center:

      Mr. Wissing and Robbie are two peas in a pod!

    6. Sheeple,Jr. says:

      I wonder why Mr. Wissing has not posted this more current Nevada Poll from a pollster we know although its polling is erratic.

      800 RV
      OH Predictive Insights
      The Nevada Independent Biden 40% 42% Trump Trump +2

      How come I always got moderated and/or scorned for making the exact same comments??
      My feelings are hurt… so I may go off to a Sabbatical. In fact, now that I think of it, I am later in the week.

    8. Tina says:

      Stupid commentary from the site admin.

      Vote for Biden again and it’s all good.

      I never heard of this polling firm.

    9. Tom says:

      After the last election cycle I’m not sure why we pay attention to any of these polls.

    10. JeffP says:

      Well we have two candidates officially now.

      Anyone want to join Nikki Haley’s team?

    11. jason says:

      I have to agree with NYC, these things happen in life, you have to be prepared and move on.

      I don’t see how Trump has anything to do with the numbers for the incumbent governor in Mississippi.

      Trump would win any election in MS by huge numbers, why is he to blame for this poll.

      That being said, I am not attacking Dave. It is his blog and he is entitled to all the TDS he wants.

    12. JeffP says:

      9. Polls are pretty meaningless anymore.

      How come I always got moderated and/or scorned for making the exact same comments??”

      The HHR Deep State has a highly sophisticated algorithm that weeds out stupid posts.

      I am sorry it keeps happening to you.

    14. jason says:

      “In fact, now that I think of it, I am later in the week”

      Can’t believe this made it though the algorithm.

    15. jason says:

      I will vote for Biden before I vote for “You Have to Feel My Pain Haley”.

      And no, I am not voting for Biden.

    16. jason says:

      Trump Yes
      DeSantis Yes
      Haley No
      Pence Yes
      Cheney No
      Christie No
      Pompeo Yes
      Youngkin Yes
      Hogan NO

    17. Bitterlaw says:

      If Haley gets the nomination, I will vote for her in the GE. She would be running against a Democrat who would be infinitely worse.

    18. Pitchaboy says:

      Trump thinks Haley is overly ambitious: rich.

    19. jason says:

      Uh, oh, I think Laura Loomer and the left finally “got” the Golden Calf.

      He married at Disney before it went woke and his wife uses her middle name.


      “Did you know that Casey DeSantis’s real name isn’t Casey?

      It’s Jill.

      True story.

      She and Ron DeSantis got married at Disney too. Weird for a guy who always likes to play tough guy with his Disney Donors.”

    20. jason says:

      Sorry, I would not vote for “You must feel my pain Haley”.

      The fact she felt compelled to use George Floyd to pander to BLM disqualifies her from ever getting my vote.

      “It’s important to understand that the death of George Floyd was personal and painful for many. In order to heal, it needs to be personal and painful for everyone.”

      F-k her and the woke horse she rode in on. She doesn’t get to tell people “how to feel”, “how to heal” and what “needs to be painful” so she can suck up to BLM.

      Maybe she can do woke NFL ads.

      President? Not in a million years. Not even against AOC.

    21. jason says:

      And anybody who puts her on their ticket doesn’t get my vote either. Not even Trump or the Golden Calf.

    22. jason says:

      If Haley gets the nomination, I will vote for her in the GE. She would be running against a Democrat who would be infinitely worse.”

      Could well be true.

      But I didn’t vote for Trump in 2016 because I thought he was unfit for office and I am consistent in that I think Haley is not fit either.

      Yes, I was wrong about Trump. Maybe I am wrong about Haley too.

      Sue me.

    23. Sheeple,Jr. says:

      The Washington Examiner has an article today saying that one of Trump’s nicknames for DeSantis is “Meatball”.
      For the life of me, calling a person of Italian descent, which DeSantis is, a Meatball will not be taken well in the Italian communities across the USA.
      jason, can you kindly tell The Donald to stop being a schmuck? Thanks!

      As of now and assuming they all run, here is how I will vote in next year’s NC GOP primary in order of preference:

      Kim Reynolds–GOP Governor of Iowa
      Greg Abbott
      Marco Rubio
      Donald Trump
      Like Bitter, my vote in the General will be for the candidate who has an “R” next to his/her name.

    24. Bitterlaw says:

      I could vote for Haley and not feel her pain. Problem solved.

    25. jason says:

      For the life of me, calling a person of Italian descent, which DeSantis is, a Meatball”


      If the Golden Calf can’t deal with “Meatball” he should quit now.

      He better gear up to be called a Nazi fascist pig who wants more floods, fires and hurricanes and hates every minority, woman, gay and transgender in America and is bent on doing away with Social Security and Medicare and who will deport everyone with a foreign sounding surname and/or doesn’t swear allegiance to the Confederate flag.

      Meatball? LOL.

    26. jason says:

      Bitterlaw says:

      I could vote for Haley and not feel her pain. Problem solved.”

      How does that change who Haley is?

      It doesn’t solve a thing. The only thing that “solves” anything is ensuring she is not even elected dog catcher.

    27. Bitterlaw says:

      It solves the problem of me having any responsibility for a Democrat being elected President. In the real world, you have 3 options:

      Vote for the Republican
      Vote for the Democrat
      Don’t vote

      The last 2 options help the Democrat.

    28. Sheeple,Jr. says:

      As usual, you miss the point. DeSantis won’t miss a beat with that or any other nickname. (The Examiner article says that Trump’s other favorite DeSantis nickname is “Shutdown”, which I do not understand.)
      The point is that the Italian electorate may not appreciate it.
      It’s just silly, unnecessary and a potential unforced error.

    29. jason says:

      I don’t vote in primaries anymore.

      But currently my preferences in order are:

      Golden Calf

      I have a list of people I would not vote for too

      Haley (pandering moron)
      Hogan (TDS moron)
      Sununu (TDS moron)
      Christie (generic moron)
      Cheney (generic moron)

      Reynolds is my favorite for VP on any ticket.

    30. Sheeple,Jr. says:

      Why the Haley Derangement Syndrome?! She’s going nowhere so let her unrealistic fantasy fade away.

    31. jason says:

      The point is that the Italian electorate may not appreciate it.”

      Zzzzz….. is the “Italian electorate” that sensitive?

      The fact is Italians LOVE meatballs, or is that now an insult too?

      I have hear many derogatory words for Italians. “W” is one. There are 3 that start with “G”.


      I think it is rather endearing, personally.

    32. jason says:

      Why the Haley Derangement Syndrome?! ”

      I explained it above. A pandering blob of jelly unfit for office.

    33. jason says:

      Will Trump lose the Jewish vote if he calls a Jewish politician a “matzo ball”?

      Full disclosure: I love matzo ball soup.

      Btw, feel free to call me a Cui.

      Yes, I love roast guinea pigs.

    34. Bitterlaw says:

      For those keeping score at home, Jason is 0-1 in predicting Republican Presidential nominees as unfit for office.

    35. jason says:

      It’s just silly, unnecessary and a potential unforced error.”

      Funny how the TDS morons here keep pointing out “Trump unforced errors”.

      What are they worried about? Isn’t the whole narrative that the Golden Calf has it in the bag?

      Why are all the TDS morons here and elsewhere so worried about a race that they already declared is decided?

    36. jason says:

      For those keeping score at home, Jason is 0-1 in predicting Republican Presidential nominees as unfit for office”

      That is true. But there is always room for a comeback.

    37. Sheeple,Jr. says:

      #31- jason
      I grew up in a Jewish/Italian neighborhood in Brooklyn. Italians can use any slang they want toward other Italians, but non-Italians cannot.
      Trust me on this one. Trump’s use of “Meatball” would not be taken kindly by a lot of older Italians. My question to Trump is—Why Use It in case Sheeple,Jr. is correct?

    38. Tina says:

      Going full anti vax and cutting social security/Medicare will not win us a general election. This is insane, if true.

    39. jason says:

      I think Sheep is going to be disappointed.

      I doubt Meatballgate is going anywhere.

      Better find something better to take down Trump.

    40. Tina says:

      The whole anti Disney message is fine, but it also won’t win us a general election,

      The focus must be on Biden corruption, the poor economy, go after the Ccp, high inflation and high internet rates, and illegals.

    41. jason says:

      Trust me on this one. Trump’s use of “Meatball” would not be taken kindly by a lot of older Italians”

      Trust me on this. No Italians are not going to vote for Trump based on him calling anyone a Meatball.

    42. jason says:

      Inflation numbers “higher than expected”.

      Sorry, MSM.

    43. jason says:

      The whole anti Disney message is fine, but it also won’t win us a general election,”

      In the long run, defeating wokism is probably more important than winning elections, although of course it is hard to do one without the other.

    44. Tina says:

      I cannot believe some of our candidates are going full anti vax and want to cut Medicare and social security. This is the Paulo Ryano strategy.

      Add in amnesty for illegals, more war mongering, and more Ccp kiss arse, you get mute 43, the worst R President.

      Amazing stupidity by our side.

    45. Tina says:

      Looks like there may be a Fed emergency meeting with that number,

      The inflation is bad, but it is the worst kind. Food,and energy inflation. Everyone pays, especially the poor and middle classs.

    46. jason says:

      WHo wants to cut Medicare and Social Security exactly?

      That is a load of leftwing BS.

    47. jason says:

      Inflation turned higher to start 2023, as rising shelter, gas and fuel prices took their toll on consumers, the Labor Department reported Tuesday.

      The consumer price index, which measures a broad basket of common goods and services, rose 0.5% in January, which translated to an annual gain of 6.4%. Economists surveyed by Dow Jones had been looking for respective increases of 0.4% and 6.2%.”

    48. Tina says:

      I do note that we are now at $4.45 a gallon and it is not yet spring.

      We got as low as $3.69 in December. Gas prices are accelerating.

      The fed will have to go back to .75% increases.

      Where is little Jerome?

    49. Tina says:

    51. jason says:

      What is wrong with that statement?

      There is no NATO military conflict with Russia.

      Zero. Nada. Zilch.

      Some things are a bridge too far…

    53. jason says:

      I just did a google search and Sheep is full of crap.

      “Meatball” is not listed anywhere as a derogatory word for Italians.

      There are many such words. But meatball is not only not in the top 10 but is not actually mentioned at all.

      I suggest if Sheep wants to promote the Golden Calf, maybe lay off the “Trump is a racist” BS.

    54. Bitterlaw says:

      Allowing a Democrat to be elected without me voting for the Republican running against them is bridge too far for me. The real world sucks.

    55. Tina says:

      Just utter incompetence.

      NEW: Sen. John Kennedy says the U.S. government “can’t find the remnants” of the objects that were recently shot down.

      “They’re lost. They can’t find them. The remnants are in very difficult terrain. … They’re looking, but they haven’t been able to find them.”

    56. jason says:

      Italians can use any slang they want toward other Italians, but non-Italians cannot.”

      Yes, we hear this with the N word too.

      But meatball is not a slang word against Italians and I doubt Trump intended it as such.

    57. jason says:

      Allowing a Democrat to be elected without me voting for the Republican running against them is bridge too far for me.”

      Yep, we all have our bridges to cross.

      Like when Mary Jo said “Teddy, I am pregnant, what should I do”?

      Teddy: “we will cross that bridge when we come to it”.

    58. jason says:

      Still waiting for Tina to tell me which Republicans are running on cutting Social Security and Medicare.

    59. jason says:

      But hey, law abiding legal gun owners are the problem…..

      “More information is being revealed about the suspected school shooter who killed three people and wounded five others at Michigan State University Monday evening.

      Anthony McRae, 43-years-old, was arrested and charged in 2019 for illegally carrying a concealed weapon, a felony, and for possession of a loaded firearm in a vehicle, a misdemeanor, according to The Detroit News. An officer in Lansing reported McRae acknowledged he had a gun but he didn’t have a concealed weapons permit. McRae also had a magazine in his right breast pocket.

      The felony charge for carrying a firearm without a permit can carry a five year prison sentence. In October 2019, McRae agreed to plead guilty to the lesser misdemeanor charge, and prosecutors dismissed the felony charge. McRae was sentenced to 12 months probation in 2019, with an additional six months being added the following year. He completed his probation in May 2021.

      Neighbors told Detroit News McRae was “wild” and a “hell-raiser.” Paul Rodney Tucker said he had heard gunfire coming from the house McRae was living in, prompting the police to be called to the residence. Neighbors said it sounded like McRae would shoot out his backdoor for target practice.”

    60. Wobbles says:

      Now THIS is what I call journalism. My favorite Mika at MSNBC.

      “I mean, I’m going to add to that description … they’re adding to their grievance train, the obsession with Hunter, for whatever they might find is, I think, that’s going to backfire as well.

      This is President Biden, who is extremely well-liked. Who many believe has accomplished something in his first two years in office. And they’re going after him with such vigor. I’m not sure that’s a good look for them. While their former president, they literally closed their eyes, [and] put blinders on to an insurrection.

      I just don’t know how that will translate, and I think we learned in the midterms that the American people are clued into democracy matters. They don’t like insurrections, where people get tortured and killed. And, they kind of like Joe Biden! They kind of like him!”

    61. jason says:

      The TDS morons routinely refer to Trump as “orange man”.

      Is that an “unforced error”?

      Somebody is bound to be offended.

    62. jason says:

      I told you the Golden Calf would have to deal with more than “meatball”.

      The Dems are attacking him for wearing boots “to appear taller”.

    63. jason says:

      The wokesters are coming for our pets too.

      And get this:

      “It is hard to fathom the boredom of pet fish.”

      Tgca is going to feel bad about this.

      I suggest taking your fish out for a “walk” in a canal. Don’t worry, they love you, they will come back.

    64. jason says:

      It is a great fallacy to say pets are bored because they live in captivity. Give a cat enough to eat, a warm place to sleep, some toys and some attention, do you really think he would prefer to be out in subzero cold hoping an overturned trash can still has some fish bones in it that he can fight other cats for? When its really cold out, my cat runs out, shakes his head and paw, and immediately runs back in…enough of that.

      The wokesters ignore how hard life in the wild really is. It is a daily struggle for survival, to get enough to eat, to avoid being eaten, to weather the elements, to avoid injury and disease.

      Animals don’t see the wilderness as somewhere with beautiful scenery and starry nights anymore than a gladiator would pause to admire the architecture of the Coliseum.

      They must have a clear understanding of how Marxism is growing through the above paragraph agendas. They also must be able to clearly articulate the issues in a way that expose the Woke Commie Dems for the danger they are.

      They must endlessly protect 1st and 2nd Amendment rights and rights of the unborn.

      They must protect the integrity of our elections and expose the lack of chain of custody of ballots and demand better in individual states by using the bully pulpit and making it a serious local and state campaign issue.

      They must seriously desire and work to get national debt and spending under control over their 8 years in office.

      Finally they must be trustworthy in protecting our country with a strong non woke military that other global empire building countries fear and respect.

      I got this from the American Legion in their newsletter. I am glad the American Legion is supportive of Ukraine.

      Feb 15

      “It was a special session called to address an international crisis. On Feb. 25, 2022, The American Legion National Security Commission met to address Russia’s unjustifiable invasion of Ukraine. Days later, The American Legion National Executive Committee unanimously passed Resolution 1: Statement on Ukraine.

      While the resolution opposes the deployment of U.S. troops for in-theater combat operations unless several stringent conditions are met, the statement also urges the administration to “continue the supply of lethal and non-lethal aid to Ukrainian forces.”

      This pragmatic approach recognizes that while the United States has many valuable allies, our country has historically sacrificed more than our share of casualties in recent wars. If Ukraine wants freedom, Ukraine must fight for it. And fighting they did.

      The bravery and valor shown by the people of Ukraine has been truly inspirational. Many armchair generals expected Ukraine’s sovereignty to collapse within 12 days, never mind 12 months. Yet against the mighty Russian military machine, Ukraine still stands. It is flying its own flag over Kiev.

      Through this deplorable attack and other aggressive actions, Russian President Vladimir Putin has repeatedly demonstrated that he is no friend of freedom and no friend of the United States.

      The American Legion applauds the Biden administration and the U.S. Congress for approving arms to Ukraine and providing the desperately needed resources needed for that nation to fight for its freedom. We support diplomatic and economic efforts to convince Russia to reverse course.

      The American Legion was founded after World War I wreaked havoc on much of Europe. A generation later, another horrific war struck that continent. Those wars and the threat posed by the old Soviet Union led to the creation of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, of which the United States is a leading member. Enshrined in NATO’s ethos is Article 5, “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…”

      Ukraine is not a member of NATO but its next-door neighbor Poland is. As Congress contemplates spending cuts, The American Legion strongly cautions against cutting our military. Providing for our common defense is mandated by the U.S. Constitution and a founding pillar of The American Legion.

      The American Legion hopes that our country never has to engage in future wars. Putin and other adversaries have proven, however, that the enemy does have a say in this.

    109. Tgca says:


      More arrogance from Gordy about “this is in the bag” mentality. That’s Hillary thinking me thinks.

      I recall people saying similar about Rick Perry and Scott Walker, two EXCELLENT highly successful GOP gubbernor’s that had great appeal and high expectations from many in the GOP who then blew it with the public. Oops!

      I recall the same expectations with Romney kicking butt in debates.

      …and most recently, I recall the same over confidence with the 2022 Lil Red Ripple mid-terms.

      We all know how those high expectations worked out.

      Being on stage by yourself in friendly environments, hyping yourself up is very different than being in a debate and challenged back and forth on details.

      Whether it’s DeSanctimonius, Haley, Hogan, Sununu, etc tooting their own horn, there’s going to be others their challenging THEIR so called greatness and legitimately calling into questions their talking points.

      I still think Trump is the favorite for the nomination because of 3 simple things that no other candidate can claim:

      1. He’s won the presidency BEFORE winning states no GOPer has won in 30+ years, and arguably twice if not for election interference.
      2. He was a very successful and accomplished president by the VAST majority of GOP voters, best since Reagan.
      3. He can actually speak to successes and ideas as president that far exceed ANY success gubbernor’s can speak to.

      Trumps successes are like rays of sun compared to radiance from a flashlight compared to his expected opponents.

    110. NYCmike says:

      “3. He can actually speak to successes and ideas as president that far exceed ANY success gubbernor’s can speak to.”

      -Unfortunately, not sure if this one is true.

      He should be able to, but all the opposition has to do is attack him in any way, and he will ignore all of the great accomplishments from his 4 years, and instead engage in battle with whomever is saying something other than kissing his arse.

      Fatal weakness.

    111. Tgca says:


      I’m not speaking literally. I’m speaking listing them comparatively.

      Trump’s speaking style has a lot to be desired in many forums, that’s not in doubt.

      But Trump’s successes far outweigh any successes gubbernors have had on the people.

      I doubt you will find many GOPers who will say DeSanctimonius, Haley, Hogan, Sununu, etc policies have impacted their lives more than Trump’s.

      I cannot think of one single policy in Floreedah since 2019 that has benefitted my life but I can think of a few under Trump that has.

    112. Thca says:

      Too bad it probably can’t happen under current rules, but I think a a Trump/Rick Scott presidency would be awesome and formidable.

      Trump could run on his accomplishments and Scott, by far, the most recent successful gubbernor in Floreedah in 30+ years could run on how they both turned things around using common sense and business approaches.

      Trump brought a practical approach to DC over typical DC politics.

      Scott, inherited a complete mess, a depressed state and turned it around before handing it off in excellent shape to DeSanctimonius.

      Just as one reminder, when Scott took office in 2011, Floreedah unemployment rate was nearly 11%. When he left, it was 3.5%.

    113. Tina says:

      Desantis would do better if he did not have the faux news/Twitter idiots.

      Going full anti vax and cutting social security are not “wins.”

    114. Gordon Allen says:

      Facts are not arrogance.
      They’re facts.

    115. Tgca says:

      Trump has facts too.

      He was highly successful president.

      He won 11 more million votes than any other GOP president.

      He won states no other GOP candidate won in 30+ years.

      He has VASTLY greater successes important to everyday people than any gubbernor in office the last few years.

      Over 70% of GOP and 40% of total electorate thinks he was cheated from a 2nd term.

      He is enormously popular with the vast majority of the GOP.

      Compare Trump’s successes to any gubbernor and tell me who outdid him please.

    117. Tgca says:

      2024 polls are for fun at this early stage but really not determinative yet because the full list of candidates have not announced or had opportunity to make their cases and 2 years is forever in politics.

      Feb polling shows Trump besting Biden in 4 of 6 polls, or 67% while the 2 polls on DeSanctimonius and Biden show each winning one poll so no clear winner. Therefore, inconclusive on a DeSanctimonius best bet but a continued trend for Trump as a best bet, without digging into further polling.

      So again, based on all evidence, Trump is a better bet than DeSanctimonius against Biden in 2024 not only in successes but polling.

      Of course, all these can change with time.

      Again, I remind all how confident they were about past candidates’ successes and expected winners in recent elections on both sides.

      I was one of the very few here that did not project GOP wins in the 2022 midterms, and not because I had superior knowledge but simply because I thought there was over confidence not matched by a coordinated message from GOP leadership.

      One HHR poster, that prides themself on knowing more about politics than anyone else here and who routinely mocks others for was so chagrined by their election 2022 massive prediction failure that they fled HHR.

      So caution to the wind on those like Gordy who think DeSanctimonius has this in the bag. I see absolutely NO evidence of this, just arrogance and wishful thinking.

    118. NYCmike says:

      “I cannot think of one single policy in Floreedah since 2019 that has benefitted my life but I can think of a few under Trump that has.”

      -In some ways, this is exactly the reason why DeSantis is so impressive.

      The hardest thing for any politician to do is get out of the way for citizens to succeed on their own. DeSantis has pushed, repeatedly, for citizens/parents/families to have more choice, he has continued Rick Scott’s fantastic stewardship of tax revenues, and has also been publicly outspoken against The WOKE AGENDA, which is probably the biggest fight there is in America today.

      Actually, there are lawsuits against him for overreaching just like Hochul is overreaching in NY. Her laws in NY are just as popular with NYers as DeSanctimonius are in Floreedah. But courts don’t look at popularity, they look at the law.

      If DeSanctimonius loses, like Hochul, it won’t be something to brag about.

      I suspect he is going to lose on bussing people out of Floreedah by challenging Federal law. I hope he loses. It’s an awful piece of legislation.

      Why would the UK Secretary of Defense lie about this now.

      Russia has nearly its entire army deployed in Ukraine, according to United Kingdom Defense Secretary Ben Wallace.

      “We now estimate 97 percent of the Russian army, the whole Russian Army, is in Ukraine,” Wallace said Wednesday on the BBC’s Today radio show..

      I thought Sunak made some commitment…maybe not.

      Then this… UK Defense Secretary Ben Wallace says that the UK will not be sending fighter jets to Ukraine any time soon, and that the focus will be ensuring that Kyiv can defend itself in the long run.

      “I don’t think it’s going to be in the next few months or even years that we are going to necessarily hand over fighter jets,” Wallace told BBC Breakfast, citing practical issues.

    131. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      Here is an ISW’s summary which included some of what Wallace said regarding the status of the fighting in Ukraine.

      “UK Defense Secretary Ben Wallace told the BBC that the UK had not seen the Russian “massing of a single force to punch through in a big offensive” and noted that Russians are now trying to advance in Donbas at a “huge cost.”[1] Wallace estimated that Russia could have committed up to 97 percent of its army to the fight in Ukraine and that its combat effectiveness has decreased by 40 percent due to an “almost First World War level of attrition” that measures Russian advances in meters in human wave attacks. ISW cannot independently confirm Wallace’s estimates, but his observation that Russia lacks sufficient mechanized combat power for a breakthrough aligns with previous ISW assessments that the conventional Russian military must undergo significant reconstitution before regaining the ability to conduct effective maneuver warfare.[2] Wallace’s observations also suggest that Russia does not have untapped combat-ready reserves capable of executing a large-scale offensive, which is also ISW’s assessment.”

      Agree that Wallace’s fighter jets comments seem odd. Ukraine pilots are now being trained to fly F-16s, so am expecting Poland and other countries to supply them to Ukraine, with tacit support of other NATO countries.

      You really have to be a sad despicable person if that is what makes your day.

      Not to mention usually he is disappointed at the end of the day, many his predictions about how Ukraine will be cut off and Putin will have free reign to continue his slaughter are wrong and don’t pan out like he wants.

      Bitter, if you hard up, I might have a new client for you, looks like this defendant might need a new lawyer. Also, looks like defending her will be a piece of cake.

      Last year, police arrested 25-year-old Taylor Schabusiness for allegedly murdering her former lover, Shad Thyrion, during sex. She then allegedly proceeded to give his dead body oral sex before mutilating his corpse with a bread knife. Both his head and penis were stuffed into a bucket, which his mother later found, according to prosecutors. Police later found Taylor at home covered in blood and she told them, “have fun trying to find all of the organs.”

      Ok. I saw the actual video clip by the great respected journalist Don Lemon commenting on Haley.

      He was actually making a point about Haley making condescending remarks about politicians past their prime so I think his criticizing her back on “prime” is well-deserved even if it’s not PC.

      Technically, he is correct. Physically, she is not in her prime either so for her to comment on others being in their prime is hypocrisy on her part.

      About 70% and 40%; of Senators and House members, respectively, are over 60, including 56% of SCOTUS.

      About 35% and 20% of Senators and House members, respectively, are over 70, including 29% of SCOTUS.

      Haley also suggested a competency test for people over 75 to serve.

      Those are bigoted comments.

      Now the STOOPID C*NT responds on Twitter that Lemon is a sexist. She sounds like Hilary Clinton now.

      If this isn’t the pot calling the kettle black, I dunno what is.

      Haley is actually advocating for discriminatory laws for competency on politicians over 75.

      Who sounds more like the bigot here I ask? Someone who responds back and throws her bigoted comments back in her face with an analogy or her for making bigoted comments in the 1st place?

      I love how a minority Indian woman politician thinks it’s ok to broadbrush an entire group with bigoted comments but gets upset when it’s done back to her.

      F*CK YOU Haley!!!

      I can’t believe I’m defending Don Lemon here because I detest this guy enormously but he made a valid point. Bigotry is bigotry regardless of the bigotry involved.

      Lemon was responding to a bigoted comment by Haley about politicians not being in their prime when neither is she.

      I don’t agree with Disney, and have disdain for them since they fired American workers and replaced them with foreigners back in like 2014, requiring the US workers to train their replacements or get no severance. Despicable!

      However, they are not a public entity and do not provide a necessary service like utilities or news that the vast majority of the public relies on so if they want to go all woke and Commie, let them. Let the market sort it out.

      On the same token, I just read yesterday about a religious university in Floreedah that is discriminating against people there who do not follow traditional relationships.

      As with Disney, they are not a public institution but I would think DeSanctimonius would call them out too for being the opposite of woke, religious freaks who think everyone has to live by the Bible.

      Let’s see if DeSanctimonius gets around to criticizing the religious right for their extremism because I see no difference between extremism on the right or left. Both are destructive to society.

      The estate he is trying to close (friend who died without a will) for the last 10 years saga continues.

      As per a FEDERAL requirement, the bank has been charging $5/month for the estate account being inactive. So they have deducted $95 from the estate account, which has less than $3,000.

      BUT the ONLY reason the account was inactive was the FEDERAL IRS not processing the decedent’s return 10,9,8,7,6,5,4 years ago despite repeated attemps by Walt to get them to act. And filing of various form this and that 3 ,4, 5 times and spending countless hours TRYING to contact IRS by mail and phone.

      He did FINALLY get through to talk to IRS agents and they said just fill out form XYZ (for the 3rd time) and mail it in, give them 2 months to process and then call back.

      THREN, COVID hits and the FEDERAL IRS COMPLETELY SHUTS DOWN all incoming phone and mail correspondence and practically all of Walt’s efforts were futile.

      FINALLY, after NUMEROUS attempts, Walt gets through by phone for a 2-hour conversation.

      And gets the $300 and some refund check so he can close the estate acount.


      Walt says that it is only right that he shall write a check to cover all the bank charges so the dollar amount of the estate matches what Walt is showing and he will write a check to the estate to cover all the monthly bank charges.

      Fetterman won because the Dobbs decision made abortion the biggest issue in the race and drove Democrat turnout”

      I don”t think that was the main reason.

      I think Amoral Scumbag’s attacks on Dr. Oz, which he got from the MSM, were efficient in making him the rich snake oil salesman carpetbagger. And then instead of recognizing Fetterman was unfit, the MSM make his decisive loss in the debate a plus, not a minus. It made Oz the bully taking advantage of the poor stroke victim.

      Oz started out too much in the hole, divisive primary and 20 points behind. Plus, the debate only happened after Fetterman had banked enough VBM and EVs to win, he lost the ED vote decisively.

      Fetterman was perfectly marketed as a blue collar hero and abused stroke victim.

      I don’t think abortion was the deciding issue, especially since Oz was hardly an extremist on the issue, he was actually a moderate as Rs go.

      I think if the debate had happened a month earlier, Oz would have won.

      If a candidate or party has to rely on lower voter turnout to win, it suggests they have a candidate, messaging or platform problem or they just need to accept the fact voters in their state may not be aligned with their politics.

      The problem was not “turnout” per se. It was VBM and EV votes BEFORE voters had a chance to see Fetterman was unfit, why do you think they delayed the debate until so many votes were in?

    197. jason says:

      I think the GOP should never fear turnout by legal voters casting legal votes.

      Why in the world would the DeSanctimonius team require its 12 state public universities to provide information on transgenders and their care in the university system? Is it being asked about other groups too? Apparently not.

      This is very concerning. If a Dem gubbernor required information on conservatives or religious people, conservatives would have every right to be concerned just as when universities were turning over information on the unvaccinated raised concerns.

      Why doe they need the info? The excuse given is lame. What do they plan to do with this info?

      I think they are crossing a line here. This is starting to look like weaponizing gubbernint in targeting a group as opposed to philosophical differences on what should be taught in a university curriculum.

      So I guess NYC also agrees other behavioral issues should also be excluded from public university funding and universities should be required to track and report these issues out as well.

      If tax-payer funded schools are spending $$ on “reproductive or behavioral health”, sexual assault counseling and referrals, grief counseling and referrals, ABORTION counseling and referrals, STD testing and counseling, suicide prevention and referrals, depression counseling, nutritional counseling, family counseling, or any other behavioral issues than the public should be able to find out the extent of the $$ wasted in such a way, and try to do something about it.

      If you want counseling and treatment for behavioral issues, do it on your own dime, time, and you’ll be fine. Universities should not have to waste money on other behavioral health issues. Universities are to educate, not address behavioral issues.

      Not sure whom you are arguing with, and what your beef is.

      If a person goes to a public university, and they are given any “services” above and beyond getting taught, YES, I expect the university to be able to make an accounting of $$$ spent for those extracurricular expenses.

      In fact, I would expect a private university to do the same, so that the people in charge of finance can’t determine if it is $$ well spent.

      Personally, if a person has mental health issues, maybe they should figure them out BEFORE they go to college. Their spot could be held open until they deal with the issues. In fact, currently, a friend of mine has a son who has some health/mental issues, and the school’s position is that he will be welcome when he has them under control.

      Doesn’t seem like such a radical idea at all.

    211. NYCmike says:

      **can determine**

    212. NYCmike says:

      College is a privilege, not a right.

      If you got problems, address them. I’ll gladly help in any way I can, but maybe college isn’t the right place to handle them.

    213. NYCmike says:

      One more example: niece of mine has had some issues, was ready to go away to school this past September. I know I asked my sister and bro-in-law to please, please try to dissuade her from going, and I made sure to speak in good terms about a local community college that friends kids had attended and done well… forward, she stayed home, is attending that CC, has a job at a local restaurant, and is doing a lot better! If she had gone away I can’t say with much confidence that similar things would have happened.

      Of course, if Tgca thinks a college campus should replace the nuclear family, there isn’t much I can say to change his mind.

    214. Tgca says:

      217 NYC

      My point is DeSanctimonius is targeting one group of people with a specific mental health issue and NOT others.

      Why doesn’t he request an accounting on rape victims, sexual assault victims, reproductive planning, suicidal victims, etc since all these involve mental health issues as well?

      It’s like saying let’s track how much we spend on AA incarceration programs but not whites or other groups.

      I think DeSanctimonius is consumed with certain minority groups and is using legislation and his authority to target them because of his own perceptions and bias. We have seen this behavior historically among select politicians.

      It’s appears he is obsessed with certain groups.

    215. NYCmike says:

      #221 – I’ll try to find out more about it.

      Personally, any $$ spent on students for extracurricular activity should be accounted for. I’ll give DeSantis the benefit of doubt, as the transgender lobby/medical profession has not been open and honest in the recent past, so they brought it on themselves.

    216. Tgca says:


      GFY you Schumer sycophant! Don’t put words in my mouth.

      I NEVER said anything about universities replacing the nuclear family.

      But since you brought it up, in fact, the vast majority of extreme mental health issues like suicide and mass gun violence go ignored by families because they are neither equipped to handle it or don’t realize the severity of it so by having family alone try to handle such issues statistically has a much worse outcome you IGORENT POS!

      My point was DeSanctimonius is targeting ONLY one group. He seems obsessed with certain minority issues.

      If Holchul did this with conservative or religious groups in public universities in NY, you’d be exclaiming discrimination, and rightfully so.

      Targeting one group and not others, regardless of the group’s political leanings is wrong.

      DeSanctimonius seems to be channeling Pat Buchanan of the 90s.

    217. Bitterlaw says:

      NYC – I am glad that things are working out for your niece. Every student is different but I strongly support students going away to school and living on their own as a step towards independence.

    218. Tgca says:


      I’ve read a few stories on this from varied sources, including the statements from his own team and universities.

      This is not about universities paying for sex changes. He is requesting information on students utilizing public university mental health services. Why does he need to know that specifically?

      Why should mental health professionals and administrators employed by the universities report to him solely on transgender issues and not other mental health issues?

      This is discriminatory and dangerous and may be violating HIPPA and FERPA laws and could deter people from seeking appropriate mental health care where needed most.

      If the university is already providing mental health services which students pay for as part of educational fees, why does he need to target one group?

    219. Tgca says:


      I agree on grooming and the medical profession taking advantage of tranny issues for political or financial gain but that is with most self-serving groups.

      Would you also agree that religious groups and ethnic minority groups take advantage of programs getting public funding because God we know that is true?

      Again, my issue is not about supporting trannies or any group. My issue is DeSanctimonius is using his power to weaponize against specific groups ONLY. He is no different than Dems on this going after religion or those groups they consider having privilege.

      This is dangerous and in this case puts university mental health services at risk because students with other serious issues that could benefit from mental health services may shy away if they think there is a risk of public disclosure.

    220. NYCmike says:

      Estonia has provided a massive amount of support to Ukraine:

      “Relative to its size, no nation has been more aggressive in helping Ukraine than Estonia. The small Baltic state has provided Ukraine with nearly $396 million in aid—about half of its defense budget and more than 1% of its gross domestic product. The donations place Estonia, which has just 7,000 active-duty soldiers in its military, among the world leaders. While European giants like Germany had to be coaxed into delivering modern battle tanks to Kyiv, Estonia has handed over whatever it could: anti-tank missiles, howitzers, grenade-launchers, mortars, ammunition, vehicles, communication devices, helmets, body armor, and military food rations. The nation of 1.3 million has taken in more than 60,000 refugees from Ukraine, a higher percentage than any other nation in the European Union.”

    222. Tgca says:

      This NY Post story is total BS! I think right wing media piling on Lemon simply to slap him down because he’s a radical lefty is misguided.

      I’ve never liked Lemon and think he’s fluff and baits on many issues but I think here he was appropriate to provide an analogy of Haley not being in her prime at 51 either when she is calling out getting rid of politicians who are not in their prime and requiring competency tests. His female co-hosts look ridiculous playing the victim card shell shocked and defending Haley’s bigoted comments about others not being in their prime and should be stepping aside from politics.

      This is all BS that you can’t attack a woman even if she attacks others 1st. If a woman makes a bigoted comment, she should be called on it and not expect others to come to her defense claiming sexism.

      What Haley said was STOOPID, bigoted and discriminatory so I think Lemon was appropriate in calling her out on it with an analogy to herself not being her prime.

      And for the record, women in their 50s are NOT in their prime either physically or mentally by most standards, as well as statistically so Lemon is correct on that narrow point.

      “Marina Yankina, 58, was discovered at the entrance of a house on Zamshina Street in St Petersburg. She has fallen 160ft to her death. It’s not clear if she lived there, and allegedly she left documents on the building’s balcony.

      Yankina was head of the financial support department of the Ministry of Defence, and was reported to be close to Mikhail Mokretsov, former Chief of Staff of the Ministry of Defence and Deputy Minister of Defence.

      Yankina has become the latest to die in mysterious circumstances after earlier this week, Major General Vladimir Makarov, 72, who was fired by putin a month ago, was shot dead at his home near Moscow.

      Last month former prime minister of an oil-rich russian region Magomed Abdulayev, 61, was rammed by a car while crossing a street.
      He was hit by a Niva car in Makhachkala city on the Caspian Sea.

      In total at least nine tycoons and industry figures linked to the regime died in suspicious circumstances last year.

      Back in December tank boss General Alexei Maslov, 69 suddenly died just one day after putin cancelled a meeting with him.

      Just days earlier, one of russia’s top naval chiefs also died suddenly aged 65.
      Alexander Buzakov was the general director of the Admiralty shipyards in St Petersburg, in charge of building new submarines for russia.

      Because if he polls better with moderates and independents and suburban voters, why is he not doing better than Trump?

      The answer is that the TDS moron tactic with their obsession to attack Trump and his supporters as a way to promote the Golden Calf is going to backfire as I have predicted here before.

      Trump supporters are beginning to fight back, I even saw a “Golden Calf is supported by George Soros”. Stupid? Yes. But a symptom of what will happen if the Golden Calf is defined as an “anti-Trump” candidate.

      But according to a press conference with DeWine, which I thought was pretty thorough, that was the choice, controlled burn or explosion, and he decided to accept the recommendation that the controlled burn was the lesser of 2 evils.

      Agreed! I’m glad my good friend Jester Jadon, the vile meat-eating mental midget and I can agree that you can’t antagonize Trump supporters because he still has an enormous following of MAGA and GOP supporters.

      To me, it’s all about loyalty. I believe if DeSanctimonius jumps in the primary, knowing Trump was cheated of a 2nd term, then that is the height of disloyalty to a man who made his career. It’s pure opportunist and I don’t trust people like that. Call me an old-fashioned hottie but it’s just my view on leaders.

      DeSanctimonius would NEVER have won in Floreedah in 2019 or even been nominated without Trump Everyone knows that!

      Besides, DeSanctimonius sucked up to Trump in 2018 thru 2020, and he would now have to disavow his past to compete against Trump and that would further antagonize the most loyal of Trump supporters.

      If Trump were to lose the primary, I would also encourage Trump to run as a 3rd candidate then and I bet millions of MAGA voters would too, denying DeSanctimonius a chance in the GE. Even as little as a few ten thousands votes in key states would be enough to derail DeSanctimonius, as he needs to win a combination of PA, WI or MI to win the GE and only Trump has done that on the GOP side in 30+ years, and by a slim margin so DeSanctimonius will be in a pickle if he decides to compete against Trump.

      I am NOT loyal to the GOP because I distrust many of them as I do the Dems. I am loyal to the candidate I trust most to do the best job, and to me that is Trump in 2024

      Anyone else running in the GOP, and I will not be selecting a presidential candidate in the GE.

      CNN is pandering to its PC audience because its female hosts were upset. It proves nothing other than they’re pandering.

      Her comments were similar to Obama who would routinely criticize the GOP for the negative tone in DC but then turn around in the next sentence and attack the GOP. Pure HYPOCRISY!

      Only Haley’s comments were worse because she injected bigotry and discrimination into them, by the way, mainly targeting older white men, and she should be called on it by ALL. I don’t care what side of the political spectrum you’re on.

      It was another one of her BLM-like moments!

      Hmmm….could it be DeSanctimonius is slipping?

      DeSanctimonius drops 5 points in a month in a primary with Trump. In a primary without Trump, he drops 10% this last month.

      1. Oversaturation? Peaking too early?
      2. Viewers getting a better look and not liking what they see?
      3. Shiny new penny wears off as voters consider others?
      4. Voters coming back to Trump thinking he is best shot for 2024?
      5. Fraudulent poll because TDS folks here think anything bad on DeSanctimonius or showing him not leading is total BS?

      Polls this early are hard to predict what will happen a year out but my gut is it’s a combination of DeSanctimonius over saturation and voters realizing Trump is best chance. According to RCP, since Jan, Trump has lead in ALL 6 aggregated polls by very healthy margins, and this poll will now be 7. This polls also shows Trump with a commanding lead over DeDanctimonius in a one-on primary race which is not going to happen.

      I now have a few GOP voting acquaintances in different states telling me DeSanctimonius is getting a bit much and acting like he’s a King, ruling by decree, just like the Dems.

      I called this early. Always trust The EXPERT!

    274. Tgca says:

      The interesting thing in this new poll which may just be an anomaly and not a trend is that without Trump in the field, DeSanctimonius lost 10 points the last month.

      That means voters have moved away from him to other candidates unsure or not voting at all.

      That is not good for him.

      I suspect it’s because he is turning off a segment of voters to him with oversaturation.

      Now why is the question? What exactly do they not like about him that would cause them to look at others?

      TDS morons who are DeSanctimonius sycophants will tell us that the poll is fraudulent or those voters are just STOOPID because everyone knows DeSanctimonius is going to walk away with this election. In fact. No need fir an election. Just give him the keys to the WH in Jan 2025.

      Phil, jason & Tina;
      Yep, Biden said that he supports providing US Dollars for Ukrainian pensioners. In the same speech, he mentioned a handful of other items the US will fund that are not military-related.
      Have you seen the cartoon tweeted by Rand Paul that shows Ohio Governor DeWine wearing a Zelensky mask? It’s very clever.

    305. Sheeple,Jr. says:

      Is it my hopeful thinking or have Biden and the Democrats already gifted three(3) States to the 2024 Republican Presidential nominee? To wit:
      1- Texas- Inaction and untruths about the Border
      2- Florida- Fighting with its Governor who was just re-elected by almost 20 points mostly due to COVID responses
      3- Ohio- the E. Palestine disaster aid rejection while announcing more funding for Ukraine

    306. JeffP says:

      Having Vivek involved in the GOP primary even though his chances are close to zero is tremendously important to raise awareness of the what is taking place in the west. Extremely intelligence but explains complex issues in a way that anyone can understand.

      He would elevate the discussion in the debates. DeSantis does a decent job understanding the same issues and is taking action in his own state. There would be a good synergy between them in my opinion.

    307. JeffP says:

      I am not surprised at all by Biden regarding funding Ukrainian pensions now that Black Rock is involved with Zelenskyy. The ponzi scheme with tax dollars continues.

    308. JeffP says:

      Trusting Biden and the incompetent Neocons with Ukraine is one of the dumbest and risky foreign polices I have ever witnessed.

      His signing off on Nord Stream will be proven true and the European backlash could end NATO.

    309. JeffP says:

      315 I guess the ESG driven Vanguard wants a piece of the action too with your tax dollars.

    310. Tgca says:


      Yes, Ramaswamy can help DeSanctimonius explain how spending thousands to convert to gas and buy a gas stove is a steal when you consider the $30 one will save in sales tax.

      That’s something ordinary people can relate to.

    311. jason says:

      Here are some tax dollars well spent.

      Of course, JeffP the Putin stooge will call it “escalation”.

      “The first class of 635 Ukrainian fighters has finished a five-week advanced U.S. training course in Germany on sophisticated combat skills and armored vehicles that will be critical in the coming spring offensive against the Russians, the Pentagon said Friday.

      Pentagon press secretary Brig. Gen. Pat Ryder said that additional training is already underway at the Grafenwoehr training area, and will involve about 1,600 more Ukrainian troops.

      The first group of Ukrainian forces arrived at the base on Jan. 15 and was put through an intense course that prepared them to take Bradley fighting vehicles and M109 Paladins into battle. The Bradleys and Paladins are two of the many armored vehicles and tanks that the U.S. and allies have pledged to the Ukrainians to help them punch through entrenched Russian troop lines. The Paladin is a self-propelled howitzer that runs on tracks rather than wheels.”

    312. jason says:

      and the European backlash could end NATO.”


      JeffP wants to end NATO so the Russians can just walk over Europe.

      Not going to happen.

    313. jason says:

      Trusting Biden and the incompetent Neocons with Ukraine is one of the dumbest and risky foreign polices I have ever witnessed.”


      I know you want to entrust Ukraine to Putin.

      Anyone else?

    314. jason says:

      nd allies have pledged to the Ukrainians to help them punch through entrenched Russian troop lines.”

      Hey, JeffP, is it ok for Ukraine to attack “entrenched” Russian troops inside Ukraine?

      A friend wants to know.

    315. jason says:

      The US should forget about pensions and just focus on the military/humanitarian aspect.

    316. Phil says:

      Ya think?

    317. Sheeple,Jr. says:

      #323- jason
      How can the Russkies “JeffP wants to end NATO so the Russians can just walk over Europe” if they cannot even prevail in a war against one European Country(Ukraine)?!

    318. jason says:

      So Sheep, you really think that without NATO protection, for example, Latvia, Estonia and Lithuania would not be a target? Poland? Moldova? How long do you think it would take the Russians to take them over?

      Why do you think Finland and Sweden are joining NATO?

      And of course “prevail” depends on the definition. The Russians have already prevailed in Belarus. They have prevailed over large swaths of Ukrainian territory. They have annexed Crimea.

      NATO is the deterrent. That is why Ukraine should have joined long ago.

    319. Phil says:

      Nobody seriously wants to end NATO……..but the idea of the Russians walking over anyone in Europe was always a pure scare tactic to pull us into the conflict. Even war mongers like Bill Kristol don’t even try to push that fantasy any longer. After the last twelve months anyone who tries to push the big bad Putin wants to overrun Eastern Europe would be laughed off the planet. Let me modify that. Putin would love to be able to do it. The obvious problem with that delusion is the obvious lack of military might to even attempt it. We’ve all seen Putin military “machine” in action. Russian invasion of Poland or Czechoslovakia? Don’t make me laugh.

    320. jason says:

      The Russians have also “prevailed” in Georgia. Chechnya. Transnistria. Armenia.

      This not about the Donbas. Never was. This is about a Greater Russian and a new USSR. Putin has admitted as much.

      “Vladimir Putin has compared himself to the 18th-century Russian tsar Peter the Great, drawing a parallel between what he portrayed as their twin historic quests to win back Russian lands.

      “Peter the Great waged the great northern war for 21 years. It would seem that he was at war with Sweden, he took something from them. He did not take anything from them, he returned [what was Russia’s],” the Russian president said on Thursday after a visiting an exhibition dedicated to the tsar.

      “Apparently, it is also our lot to return [what is Russia’s] and strengthen [the country]. And if we proceed from the fact that these basic values form the basis of our existence, we will certainly succeed in solving the tasks that we face.”

    321. jason says:

      Nobody seriously wants to end NATO”

      And why not? Because it is the ONE deterrent to Russian expansion.

      That was true from Day 1 and is true today.

    322. jason says:

      At least Phil admits that Putin’s aim is to recreate the USSR, but the issue is whether that is “delusional”.

      It’s hardly delusional. Putin came close to decapitating the Ukrainian leadership and installing a puppet regime. That was the plan. Land a big force close to Kyiv, take over the government. The protracted war was not his plan and he was not adequately prepared for it.

      But had he succeeded to installing a puppet regime in Ukraine a la Belarus you don’t think he wouldn’t move on to the next target?


    323. Phil says:

      Ukraine has been a disaster for the Russian military. Any conflict with NATO would completely end what was Putin’s military. Think a rerun of the highway of death Sadaam’s retreat in Kuwait. It would make the Little Big Horn look like an even fight.

    324. Tina says:

      Yup soon we will be paying money to feed all ukranians. It will never end. The spigot has to be turned off as we are going down a cliff.

      I think trump can do it. Since his foreign policy was the most successful since Reagan. No endless and stupid wars.

    325. Phil says:

      When Putin didn’t intimidate Ukraine into folding the first week of the invasion he was in deep doo doo.

      Worry about China. They can actually walk the walk militarily.

    326. jason says:

      Putin made several miscalculations:

      1) Overestimated the competency of his initial attack force. Once his move to capture the airfield near Kyiv failed, the long convoy that was supposed to enter a mostly occupied Kyiv became useless and a sitting duck. So he had to withdraw from northern Ukraine.
      2) Underestimated Zelensky’s (and the Ukrainian people’s) resolve to fight. His intelligence probably told him Zelensky would flee and the government would collapse.
      3) Underestimated the resolve of the west and NATO in opposing his conquest and the amount of weapons that would be made available to Ukraine.

      But those mistakes are not permanent. The objective is still there. Russia will continue mobilizing to achieve it.

      Putin’s hope is that the west might tire of the war and the cost of it. If it does, he will win.

      But if the US and Europe remain steadfast in support of Ukraine and any other target, his dream of a Greater Russia will remain a dream.

      Hopefully we will make the right choice.

    327. Tina says:

      There is no end game with the neocons.

      It is just flood our country with illegals and ignore our county. (Train. Derailments or sheotty economy with high inflation.

      With them it’s a 1000 points of leftism and stupid wars.

    328. jason says:

      I very much doubt Trump would want be responsible for surrendering Ukraine to Putin.

      My bet is despite the rhetoric, he would certainly continue to provide military aid.

    329. Tina says:

    338. Bitterlaw says:

      Only $196 billion? A bargain to degrade and destroy the Russian military.

      Removing wokeism in the NBA and NFL and defeating their ability to push radical socialist views and indoctrinate the American youth apparently offends Bitter.

      If you watch the NBA and NFL, you contribute to their platform to further spread wokeism and indoctrinate others.

      They make money off of viewership. Without viewership, they can’t make the money they do or have a platform to push woke propaganda.

      So evidently those that watch woke sports support woke propaganda.

    346. Bitterlaw says:

      The sad little clown knows I absolutely oppose woke culture. By his logic, if he listens to or watches the weather report on the news, he supports the theory of human caused climate change.

    347. Tgca says:


      The pathetic retarded losah PityLaw has rules for thee but not for me.

      NOTHING Tina says supports Pootin! NOTHING!

      If her views support Pootin, you can’t argue your choices don’t support wokeism.

      It’s like porn. If you watch porn, then you contribute to the spread of it and the messaging it sends.

      If you watch woke sports, you contribute to wokeism because it’s central to their messaging. Without viewers, they can’t spread wokeism.

    348. Tgca says:

      If PityLaw is so RIGHTEOUS that Tina should embrace unfettered military support for Ukraine without regard to US taxpayers, then why isn’t he supporting the same against China?

      They are holding a million + Ughyurs in concentration camps and kill tens of thousands of their own annually through their brutal regime.

      Does PityLaw support a complete embargo on China or do those ASIAN lives not matter to him?

      What about in Ethiopia, where there’s a civil war, and civilians are being slaughtered? Does PityLaw support military intervention or do those AFRICAN lives not matter to him?

    349. Bitterlaw says:

      So why do you support climate change theory?

      Tina opposes military aid to Ukraine. Military aid to Ukraine is the only way to defeat Putin. Therefore, Tina and her fellow HHR travelers and this is the same as supporting Putin’s victory.

      Teams play whether I watch or not. At least I oppose woke statements as proven by my public comments and hundreds of HHR posts.

    350. Tgca says:


      …and for the record PityLaw, I DON’T know that you are against wokeism. I know you CLAIM you are but you continued to support the woke messaging platform when most here took a stand against it and tuned out woke sports.

      So as far as I’m concerned, you did NOT walk the talk.

      Your claim of anti-wokeism were just words.

    351. Tgca says:


      STOOPID analogy. I don’t watch weather reports. Never did!

      I get current weather updates on my phone that have no messaging on weather other than temp, humidity, wind speed.

      You really look STOOPID.

      Now go take a science class and learn how to read a weather report.

    352. Bitterlaw says:

      The sad little clown does not support any actions on other conflicts or injustices. He just pretends to justify more Ukrainian deaths. He equates Putin’s war as the same as Zelensky’s wife buying clothes with her own money.


      Supporting military aid to Ukraine for victory:

      Opposing military aid to Ukraine and supporting Russian victory
      Sad little clown

    353. Bitterlaw says:

      The sad little clown pays for or gets free weather apps by groups that do support climate change theory.

    354. Tgca says:


      God! PityLaw is an IDIOT!

      So you have no influence over woke sports you watch but Tina has GREAT influence on whether military funds will be expended in Ukraine so she is at fault for supporting Pootin but you’re not to blame for woke sports having viewership ratings that allow them mass messaging and to make them money.

      Is that your argument?

      Actually, you have more control over woke sports messaging than Tina has over military spending because woke sports spread their messaging through actions of people like you who tune in to watch them spread their woke messaging since the vast majority of sports viewership is through broadcasting and not attending live games. If everyone tuned them out, they’d get dropped from the networks and lose revenue.

      You can’t spread wokeism to the mass population if people tune you out. You chose not to tune wokesters out so you provide them their messaging platform. You’re a contributor to their messaging by choice. It’s not like you rely on them for basic needs that are difficult to secure elsewhere.

      Perhaps you should read up on ratings too and see how they make money.

    355. Bitterlaw says:

      The sad little clown thinks ratings are so sensitive they can count me. They don’t.

      Tina has made thousands of posts supporting policies that favor Putin.

    356. Tgca says:


      I neither pay for weather or get weather apps.

      It’s an automated feature that comes with my phone like temp features that comes with my car MORON!

      Are you suggesting EVERYONE at HHR, including yourself, support climate change theory because they get automated weather features on their phone or in their car? Should we all STOP using phones and cars to avoid supporting climate change theory? Is that your point?

      You’re making a FOOL of yourself now!

      You accuse Tina of supporting Pootin while your own actions support woke culture. Admit it! Everyone here knows you were the only one refusing to give up woke sports. Your choice. Admit it! Otherwise, you sound like the alcoholic who can’t admit they have a drinking problem.

    357. Tgca says:


      I have NEVER seen a post from Tina that favors Pootin.

      That is your interpretation because you can’t handle that others disagree with you.

    358. Tgca says:


      As for trying to minimize your participation in watching woke sports, then the same argument can be made of voting. One person’s vote should not matter but according to you it does when you claim not voting GOP elects Dems.

      See the HYPOCRISY?

    359. Tgca says:


      By the way, I guess if one person watching woke sports won’t make a difference, then the same could be same of one person watching porn, right?

      Porn is generally an industry that uses and abuses young desperate naive ladies and it goes against the fabric of our nation but one person watching it won’t matter I guess to you.

      Is that your point? One viewer supporting woke sports or porn should not matter because it’s only one small part of the viewership.

    360. Bitterlaw says:

      Your phone service provider is probably woke so unless you just send letters, have no internet, and use carrier pigeons, by your stupid logic you support woke messages. By my logic, you don’t.

      EVERY post that opposes military aid to Ukraine favors Putin.

    361. Bitterlaw says:

      The internet is a rough place. By the SSD little clown’s logic, anybody who uses it also supports the unsavory and harmful sectors. He obviously should cancel his phone and internet service and stop posting at HHR.

    362. Tgca says:


      …and everyone that tunes into woke NBA and NFL supports a woke messaging platform.

      If everyone refused to watch the NFL and NBA, woke messaging from them would go away. Same with porn. If people didn’t watch it, it would go away.

      They make money from viewership in both cases.

    363. Bitterlaw says:

      Sad. Not SSD.

    364. Tgca says:


      By your own logic, you support Chinese concentration camps holding a million + Uyghurs because you don’t support military intervention or embargo’s on China.

      How can you support tens of thousands slaughtered by China annually?

      Defend why Ukraine should be supported but not Uyghurs or Ethiopians or any other ethnic groups suffering in Africa or Asia. Many more die and suffer in those places than in Ukraine. Are they not worth it because they’re not Europeans?

      Why won’t you support US intervention into China and Africa?

      China is doing to Uyghurs what Germany did to Jews in the 1930s. You okay with that?

    365. Phil says:

      For the record, I have never “supported” Russian victory…..but bitter knows that.

    366. Tgca says:

      I noticed after repeated requests over the last year, PityLaw REFUSES to address the brutality by other dictators around the world and how his position supports them.

      He only thinks white Europeans deserve the support of the US military. All others can languish in misery in concentration camps, be driven from their homes, and slaughtered by the tens if not hundreds of thousands in Africa and Asia.

    367. Tgca says:


      BS Phil!

      If you support anything but a full open checkbook for Ukraine, you support Pootin. There’s no other option here.

      But if you watch woke sports or porn, that’s ok because it’s not supporting wokeism or sexualization of mostly young desperate women. Most young women dream of a career in porn ever since they were little girls. It’s a career choice so it’s ok to watch it.

    368. Bitterlaw says:

      Phil opposes military aid to Ukraine. If Ukraine does not receive military aid, it will lose the war to Russia. Ukraine losing the war to Russia means Russia wins.

    369. Bitterlaw says:

      The sad little clown resorts to the most absurd argument in favor of letting Putin win in Ukraine – Unless we help everybody, we should not help anybody. He doesn’t want the US to help Ukraine and will keep piling up excuses, justifications, false narratives, red herrings and chicanery to support a Putin victory

    375. Phil says:

      No, bitter. I oppose UNLIMITED military aid to Ukraine. I specifically remember around the first of the month posting that I favored the Abrams tanks going to Ukraine. Last I looked tanks would constitute military aid.

      What I don’t support is an unlimited blank check Bill Kristol style. I damned sure don’t support handing over a blank check financed by billions we have to borrow. That seems like a rather reasonable position if you ask me. Borrowing tens of billions when we are in debt 31 trillion only to have a significant amount ripped off through graft isn’t something anyone should support. I want limits and I want accountability.

      I’d put limits on our aid and demand accountability for every dollar we send to Ukraine.

      I believe China is by far the threat we should be worrying about. Putin doesn’t have the military capability of moving on Europe. He can’t even make headway in eastern Ukraine as has been rather obvious over the last 12 months. NATO air power would finish what is left of his military if he ever tried moving on Europe and Putin knows it.

      China, on the other hand ought to be the main concern and it’s not even close. They have the military capability to walk the walk.

      Again, all the above just to clear the record.

    376. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      A Russian who lives in the U.S. made a commentary about Americans who he referred to as Putin’s “useful idiots.”

      “You know, man, you know,” he said, “you guys rule.”

      I didn’t linger to discover his particular malfunction, but it’s always more or less the same. Useful Idiots, in my experience, aren’t necessarily dumb or evil. Most that I’ve met were, in fact, highly educated white-collar or academia types, but also a good deal of salt-of-the-earth people.

      If there’s one thing they all have in common, it is the realization that their country, the society they live in, is imperfect. It can be discrimination, corruption, excessive wokeness, incompetence, political hypocrisy, or inequality. Whatever problems, some real, some imaginary, overwhelm their psyche enough to conclude that “this system I live in does not work.”

      The next leap of logic is that: “this other system that I barely know anything of, except it’s opposed to my clearly-not-working-system must be the good one.” Basically, a kind of spin on the “the grass is greener on the other side” rationale.

      And then it naturally spirals into the “what about American imperialism and Iraq, western hegemony and Putin is building a bilateral world; and Ukraine is historically Russian, and what if Russia decided to put ICBMs in Mexico, and Russia is so ahead of us in recognizing that LGBTQ is a threat to our civilization, and we’re so racist we should focus all our energies in being ashamed, and don’t forget about the power of the military-industrial complex.” Pick and choose – and while not all of these whataboutisms are pure nonsense, they’re entirely irrelevant to the matters at hand: A) Russia is waging the bloodiest war since WW2 in a European country, and B) the Russian government considers YOU to be their enemy, with – at the very least – a silent consent by the vast majority of its population.”

    377. Tgca says:


      Ok. PityLaw, the retard, evidently needs to learn English comprehension.

      No one said anything about not helping Ukraine. Find one post where anyone says that. Not your drivel of interpretation where you have a history of saying STOOPID chit that has no basis in reality and you make a FOOL of yourself and later have to eat your words or try and deflect when all mock you.

      God! Now I can understand why you never advanced in your career and you’re still stuck as a low level associate lawyer 1st in line for the axe when times get tough.

    378. Tgca says:


      Notice PityLaw’s deflection AGAIN.

      He still refuses to answer why the US should not help African and Asian people suffering and living under tyrants.

      The Uyghur concentration camps have been around going on 7 years so where has PityLaw been on this? There are children in those camps that have NEVER known freedom.

      My point is PityLaw doesn’t give a F*CK about people suffering unless they’re select white Europeans but then he tries to lecture others because they don’t agree with his sophomoric view of the world.

      Stick to ambulance chasing and leave the Big Problems to the grown-ups without mental disorders.


    379. Bitterlaw says:

      I too was in favor of US and the EU countries helping Ukraine in the beginning of the Russian invasion. But definitely not to the levels of where we are now. If the EU wants to continue their ongoing support fine. However, the NordStream pipeline story is not going to go away and not have serious repercussions. Biden f’d Up.

      But if you people want to trust Biden, Sullivan, Blinken, Nuland and the rest for what is best for our countries foreign policy it’s your prerogative. I do not and that’s NOT being pro Russia. That’s ridiculous.

      The package, dubbed Nansen Support Programme for Ukraine, received the backing of 10 party leaders in the Storting, Norway’s parliament, including Prime Minister Jonas Gahr Store, who said the aid will be financed from the country’s oil revenues and will not affect the Norwegian economy.”

      “”We are standing together in condemning Russia’s war in Ukraine and in supporting the Ukrainian people’s legitimate fight to defend themselves,” the prime minister said.

      Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, who addressed the 169-seat parliament via video link, thanked Norway for the donation.

      “I am grateful to all of you for your principled and unwavering support. For the thousands of Ukrainian lives saved. For the things that became a reality due to the Norwegian assistance to our defense,” Zelenskyy said.

      “You are setting a precedent of long-term financial support for a state that defends its independence,” he added.”

      So was Phil.

      Now they are against it.

      No, not a coincidence.

      Exactly. Biden might be a trainwreck as President, but he is certainly right about Ukraine and deserves to be supported on that issue.

      Even a blind squirrel finds an acorn once in awhile.

      I have always been willing to support Democrats when they do the right thing and it is in the interest of the country, and have always been against cheap partisan politics of opposing everything just for political reasons.

      Biden is right on Ukraine. The Putin lapdogs just have to deal with it.

    396. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      Finland is now up to $630 million in military aid to Ukraine. Finland also is increasing it’s military to protect against a potential Russian attack.

      “Finland will deliver another package of defence materiel to Ukraine. The President of the Republic decided on the matter on 19 January 2023 on the proposal of the Government.

      This will be the 12th package of defence materiel to be delivered to Ukraine. It is estimated that to replace the capabilities included in this delivery will cost more than EUR 400 million to Finland. The combined value of all defence materiel packages submitted so far is now EUR 590 million.

      – Ukraine continues to need support in defending its territory and the current package of defence materiel is clearly the largest one to date. Finland supplies heavy weapons and ammunitions to Ukraine, says Minister of Defence Mikko Savola.”

    397. jason says:

      “Oil-rich Norway on Thursday approved an aid package worth 75 billion kroner ($7.4 billion) for Ukraine, which will extend over five years.

      The money will be split evenly between military and humanitarian assistance, with approximately $1.5 billion being allocated each year.”

      This ought to be good.

    402. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      The reason the Ukrainians have so far prevented the the Russians from advancing is because they are receiving NATO military aid. The Russians military is being ground down, with no U.S. troop involvement. It is well worth the investment. Also believe it has served as a warning to China. The U.S. will not cut and run like it did in Afghanistan. We will stand our ground, and do so with the support of our allies.

    403. Tgca says:

      Ooooooh! I’m sure this really scared the Chinese. Blinken looks ridiculous trying to act all tough after pansying to China and he makes the US a laughing stock in Asia.

      Secretary of State Antony Blinken on Saturday warned top Chinese diplomat Wang Yi of consequences should China provide material support to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, saying in an interview after the two met that Washington was concerned Beijing was considering supplying weapons to Moscow.

    404. Tgca says:


      I don’t think China is one bit deterred by what’s going on in Russia because the West looks weak and missed an opportunity to STOP this war a year ago. Now Europeans and the rest of the world are less focused on Ukraine than from the start and Russia has built up support with about half the world on its side, and China knows this.

      So if China has any reservations, it’s most likely economics and not fear of the US military.

      I would go as far to say in a land war, the Chinese would probably prevail over the woke US military though I doubt it will ever come to that in the 1st place.

      The US military has become a weak, woke, overweight out of shape organization supervised by woke libs. I would bet in a real land war today you’d see lots of Americans taking mental health leaves and going AWOL.

      At the pace the US military is going, they will be recognized behind China worldwide within a few years. Just like the veil was pulled off how strong the Russian military is, I expect the same is true of the American military. Sad!

      Wishful thinking, Boris.

      Both the US and UK are steadfast in their support for Ukraine. Double speak my ass.

      And yesterday the US stated clearly that Putin has committed crimes against humanity.

      As Streiff correctly observes, this will make “negotiated peace talks” (i.e. Ukraine surrender) more difficult.

      “This designation does two things. First, it makes the negotiated peace so beloved by Tucker Carlson’s guests, where Russia takes what it wants, very difficult because the resolution of this charge will have to be part of any deal. The decision to label Russia’s operations as crimes against humanity requires that those officials responsible for planning and executing them be brought to justice. It is hard to see how Vladimir Putin, his foreign minister Sergey Lavrov, his defense minister Sergei Shoigu, and the chief of the general staff Valery Gerasimov can escape culpability. This official announcement has “burned the boats,” so to speak, and guaranteed a prolonged conflict…or a coup.

      Second, this stench will stick to Russia for years and severely hinder its ability to rejoin the civilized world if, indeed, Russia has ever been a member. Members of the Russian military and government will be afraid to travel to most places in Europe because, just like members of the Waffen SS, they are members of a criminal organization.

      Don’t misunderstand me. I think the call was the right call. I’m just astonished the Biden State Department had the stones to drop the hammer”

      Neither is true. There was no “great negotiating position” (actually, little has changed on the ground since the counter offensive) and “the West did not want it to happen” is a lie too.

      The West is opposed to Ukraine ceding its sovereign territory to Russia.

      So am I. We should all be.

      There is nothing McConnell can do about the border or “woke push”. And little he can do on spending.

      But on Ukraine, there is a lot he can do. McConnell is a a pragmatic guy who knows how to pick his fights.

      On Ukraine, he is doing a great job.

    433. Phil says:

      You know. Maybe at least mention them now and then.

      Secretary of State Blinken today has warned China against providing Lethal Weaponry such as Missiles or Drones to Russia for use against Ukraine, stating, “It would have Serious Consequences in our Relationship.”

Actually, I’m sure many agree with him on his ambivalence to life. Who cares if he lives or dies? Well, I do actually because then we’d have no one to mock who says STOOPID things not based in reality.

      I never understood why PityLaw in his privileged life is so self pitying. After all, he lives in a nice white elitist no minorities allowed town. His wife brings home the bacon so it does not matter what low level stressless job he has, and he hangs out with a bunch of adolescent girls to feel in charge.

      “The grievance, paranoia and imperialist mindset that drove President Vladimir Putin to invade Ukraine have seeped deep into Russian life after a year of war — a broad, if uneven, societal upheaval that has left the Russian leader more dominant than ever at home.

      Schoolchildren collect empty cans to make candles for soldiers in the trenches, while learning in a new weekly class that the Russian military has always liberated humanity from “aggressors who seek world domination.”

      Museums and theaters, which remained islands of artistic freedom during previous crackdowns, have seen that special status evaporate, their anti-war performers and artists expunged. New exhibits put on by the state have titles like “NATOzism” — a play on “Nazism” that seeks to cast the Western military alliance as posing a threat as existential as the Nazis of World War II.

      Many of the activist groups and rights organizations that have sprung up in the first 30 years of post-Soviet Russia have met an abrupt end, while nationalist groups once seen as fringe have taken center stage.

      As Friday’s anniversary of the invasion approaches, Russia’s military has suffered setback after setback, falling far short of its goal of taking control of Ukraine. But at home, facing little resistance, Putin’s year of war has allowed him to go further than many thought possible in reshaping Russia in his image.

      “Liberalism in Russia is dead forever, thank God,” Konstantin Malofeyev, an ultraconservative business tycoon, bragged in a phone interview on Saturday. “The longer this war lasts, the more Russian society is cleansing itself from liberalism and the Western poison.”

    453. Phil says:


      Pennsylvania is long gone. I’d feel sorry for the voters there if it wasn’t for the fact that they elected the state Supreme Court members and governor in the first place before the voting system was changed allowing those officials to overhaul the electoral system and remain in power forever.

      Let the left through the door and they will get in and overhaul the system ensuring control forever. Happy to say no Democrat has won a state wide race in Texas in thirty years…not governor, Supreme Court member, Senator, Lt Governor, AG, Treasurer…any office. The trick is to not let them get their foot in the door. Pa has learned the hard way…and now it’s too late.

      Money spent supporting Ukraine by politicians aside, polls have shown the Ukrainian war has significantly dropped in importance to most people. So unless some very recent polls show a change, I think gubbermint leaders are way behind where their people are on getting a workable resolution.

      Again, the world is divided over Ukraine with about equal support or reluctance to be involved at about 50-50. Russia has Africa, Asia, and parts of South America on its side while Ukraine has the west.

      I suspect support will continue to drop over time and Russia is playing a long game here hoping to wear others down.

      It may not be a good strategy but I think that’s why they haven’t escalated to the level they could.

      I can’t imagine going into 2024 if the US is in a recession with Americans supporting continued spending in Ukraine over American economic suffering.

      I would support a cease fire where the Russians go back to pre-invasion borders. That still violates Ukraine’s sovereignty but it is a compromise. I believe the West could convince Zelensky it is the best that can be achieved at the moment. It still leaves Russia in Crimea and areas of the Donbas.

      But how does Putin sell 200k dead and wounded Russians, hundreds of billions in lost equipment, and a shredded economy to get back what he had a year ago?

    461. Tgca says:

      Agreed! Blinken and the US are a joke on the world stage right now. The US has lost influence internationally since the Iraq invasion debacle in 2003 but Biden has brought it to a whole new level. For a brief time their under Trump, it looked like the US could actually get some credibility back but it’s all lost under Biden.

      I posted about Blinken in 416. China ridicules and mocks the US. It does not fear it. It’s also building a superior military to the US with stolen technology and REAL men serving.

      China got the US military chasing down and shooting party balloons out of the sky now. That’s pathetic!

    462. jason says:

      Contrary to what Boris says, I doubt anyone in leadership positions in the West opposes a settlement. The idea that everyone wants the war to continue because it sells more military equipment is BS. There will be plenty of orders for military equipment with a peace agreement too. Everyone will be preparing for Putin’s next move.

      They just oppose a settlement where Putin wins.

    463. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      I am glad someone took out Nord Stream. It now is realized that making Germany dependent on Russian natural gas was a mistake. Trump was a strong opponent of the Nord Stream pipeline. Maybe he took the pipeline out.

      Meanwhile, the U.S. has become the world’s largest LNG exporter. And it’s going to get better as the U.S. builds several more LNG terminals. China just signed a huge LNG supply deal with Qatar.

    464. Tgca says:


      Agreed! That’s what we should be working towards. But Zelenskyy is trying to drag the West into an expanded war to get back Crimea too.

      The West won’t have it. Support among the people is dropping for a long drawn out war in a time of economic concerns and other local issues like immigration.

    465. JeffP says:

      473 “It still leaves Russia in Crimea and areas of the Donbas.”

      Like a land bridge…yeah I posted this two weeks ago as part of a peace deal. LOL.

      The sanctions haven’t worked like you think. Dictators like Putin don’t have to sell anything to their people. Generally speaking there are aspects of the nationalists that the Russian people appreciate. Very much like any other country does.

    468. Tina says:

      We know Russia did not take out the pipeline,

      I said it from the beginning, it was us. Biden made statements about taking out nord 2. And we had planes in the general area.

      Doesn’t take a rocket scientist here.

    469. Tina says:

      I am fine with that cease fire. No issues at all.

      I just want to make sure that the $$$ is not going in the hands of others. Without audits, we don’t know.

      Sue me.

    470. Tina says:

      I also don’t want any speeches by the grifter to Congress; any more begging for $$$ from the ungrateful grifter; and no more “foreign flags”s in Congress.

      That is a disgrace.

      Trumps off the rails rant against DeSantis last night didn’t even get reported on by the Gateway Pundit. It’s probably a good thing he isn’t on Twitter right now.

    476. Paul says:

      Tina, JeffP, Tgca:
      You do not understand that to get to the point of a peace deal like Jason described, Ukraine has to be supplied by the US fully. Ukraine has to fight to regain that land and more so that Russia is willing to negotiate to go back to pre-2022 boundary with Russia keeping Donbass chunk and Crimea.

      So to be against weapons to Ukraine AND want that negotiated settlement is logically impossible.

    477. Paul says:

      Tgca: Yes you are a Putin stooge along with the others because you think you can get that point of negotiation while stopping military aid.

    478. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      490. Paul, you talking about a legitimately negotiated peace deal. What Putin appeasers want is to give Putin all the land he currently occupies, including the land between Donbass and Crimea.

      Of course Putin will not honor a peace deal and will soon attack Ukraine again, or maybe the Baltics.

    479. Tgca says:

      490 Paul

      Since you claimed in post 233 you’d totally suck Biden, I think his jizz passed on dementia to you.

      I NEVER stated anywhere to stop military aid to Ukraine. I called for spending accountability and brokered resolutions to end the war.

      But here’s what you said freak.

      Paul says:
      February 17, 2023 at 1:20 am
      I’d totally suck Joe Biden. I bet he can’t really get it up anymore.

    480. Paul says:

      They want Russia to annex the land up to Kherson. I’m sure Russia will be happy with that….. for awhile…. Oh wait, it would only be fair for the Russian controlled Kherson area to be linked to the Russian controlled Transnistra. Ukraine will be landlocked but they will be at peace…..for awhile….. And it would only be fair if Kaliningrad wasn’t so lonely an isolated. Just give Russia a land bridge between there and Belarus…. then Russia will be happy.

    481. Paul says:

      Tgca: I’m not a military expert so I do not know why we need special accounting for Ukraine that is different than all of our other military expenditures in Israel and other places.

    482. Paul says:

      The thing is…I have been personally against almost all US military involvement during my adult life. Most have been proven to be a long-term mistake (weapons to Iraq to bomb Iran, weapons and training to Contras in Central America, weapons to Al Qaida to fight Russia in Afghanistan, etc.) I now think that the Kuwait War was justified. But almost all others were not.

      HOWEVER, I firmly believe the support of Ukraine is justified, appropriate AND essential to survival of western democracies.

      I just can’t understand those who see it differently.

    483. Tgca says:


      Because Ukraine is a very corrupt country, the 2nd most corrupt in Europe besides Russia. Their gubbermint personnel have been doing the dirty work of oligarchs and criminals for years.

      We know weapons have been funneled to terrorists and criminals in Africa and Europe the last year. This has been reported on extensively and brought up as an issue of meeting at African nations leadership conference. When presidents of African nations bring this up to the US, we should take it seriously.

      We don’t have this problem with Israel.

    484. Tgca says:


      I don’t think anyone here is against military support for Ukraine.

      The issue is an open checkbook and providing advanced weapons that are sold on the black market and the fact that our own military agencies have been raising flags that they are risking being unprepared because of inventory depletion. These weapons cannot be manufactured overnight.

    485. JeffP says:

      The US foreign policy dream team.

      Wynken, Blynken and Nod

      Sullivan, Blinken, and Biden

    486. JeffP says:

      The time to negotiate a peace deal is long past now. The west wanted no part of that even if Putin did. Regardless that is Ukraines best possible outcome. After the counter offensive was their best negotiating position. Maybe another counter offensive will happen.

      Problem is Russia has hundreds of thousands of potential soldiers to put in the meat grinder. The only way Ukraine can have an outright victory in MY OPINION is with NATO forces on the ground and the full might of its weapons and air power. Just being realistic.

      Ukraine has never been sovereign in a true sense. It was Russian controlled until 2014 then a US controlled vassal state (which will trigger some of you).

    487. Tgca says:

      This is an unnecessary escalation to the Ukraine War.

      UK supplies Ukraine with long-range military weapons that have been off the table thus far by the West. So the West can’t be upset as China funnels advanced weaponry to Russia as well, maybe even Iran.

      It’s reported that Ukraine could use these UK weapons on an assault in Crimea which means they are expanding the war to try and take it back from Russia, as well as lob UK missiles into Russia. If that happens, Russia is justified in attacking UK assets.

      I don’t see how this DOESN’T escalate the war and broaden the risk to bring other countries into a direct conflict.

      STOOPID F*ckin’ politicians failed to act from Day 1 to stop the war and now overreacting to expand the war.

      I’m not sure Germany and France are going to be happy the Idiot Great Britain PM is escalating a war into greater Europe. I hope they come out and publicly criticize him ASAP and let him know he stands alone and they will not support him. That could get the British people turning on him as well just like they turned on Blair over Iraq. I’m betting the UK people are not interested in another venture into war after the Iraq debacle that Blair never recovered from.

    488. Tgca says:

      My view is that we are marching towards a greater global conflict that will expand beyond Europe.

      I don’t see the West on the winning side of this like in WW2. I see a massive conflict where Africa, Asia, and certain countries in South America will unite with Russia against the West.

      This could end up being more of an economic war too than military conflict. The West could be shut out of Africa and Asia for decades to come economically.

      This could also embolden China to move on Taiwan in a global conflict and Israel could be on its own as its neighbors rally around Russia and China.

      The US can’t strategically defend Europe, Taiwan, and Israel. I could see Russia or China bribing Iran with NOOKS too.

      Maybe this is what the Dems wants. A heightened conflict in hopes or re-electing them in a time of war.

      I think this is a dangerous game being played by a few in power.

    489. JeffP says:

      Zelenskyy apparently shared a 10 point peace agreement on Ukrainian TV interview today. Looking for confirmation. A lot of propaganda out there on the inter webs.

    490. Paul says:

      500: Tgca: I think they need to expand the war into Crimea if they are going to get a deal with Russia. Unless Russia is losing, they are NOT going to accept a peace agreement.

      So, it becomes a deal where Russia leaves if they are given Crimea and the south half of Donbass. If they already have those, there is no room for negotiation.

    491. Paul says:

      To be clearer: “Unless Russia is losing, Russia will NOT accept a peace agreement that goes back to pre-2022 boundaries.”

    492. Paul says:

      497: There is a lot of intentional misinformation and exaggeration about military aid getting diverted. I can’t tell how much is true. But clearly most of the aid is being used by Ukraine or Russia would be in Kiev by now.

    493. Paul says:

      499: JeffP: On the ground, the situation is almost exactly the same as it was at the end of the counter offensive in late summer.

    494. Paul says:

      One fact that will people may miss is that from 2014 to 2022, Russia only controlled the southern half of Donetsk and Luhansk. But they claim all of those two provinces. The northern half is the part toward Kharkiv and has been firmly in Ukraine control for most of the time.

      I’m certain you will hear some Republicans talking about handing Russia ALL OF LUHANSK and DONETSK. That would be a big surrender on Ukraine’s side.

    495. Bitterlaw says:

      Let’s just cut to the chase. Do you support continued military aid to Ukraine? Yes or No?

      Bitterlaw – Yes

    496. Paul says:

      Tgca: The country has been getting the crap bombed out of them for over a year. Your super duper accounting of aid (something that you don’t need required anywhere else in the world) might be a challenge where infrastructure and power are being bombed. But sure, go ahead and put up roadblocks to tie Ukraine’s hands behind their backs.

    497. JeffP says:

      508 No…200 billion is more than enough…let the EU & UK do it.

    498. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      Zelensky’s 10-point peace plan has been around for some time. It’s online. Among the provisions are that Russia withdraws from the territory it has occupied.

      510 JeffP: That should show China that we are serious. LOL.

    500. JeffP says:

      I think Vivek might have that “Obama” charisma about him. Could be a surprise. Based on his tweets in the last couple days I think he is running. I have heard he is worth close to a billion by now. Maybe he can self fund a hundred million or so to get started. He also has had the backing of Peter Thiel in his business pursuits.


      “I’m all-in for America First. I’ve been crystal clear about that at every step, without apology. But we must go further: to put America first, we need to rediscover what America *is.* That won’t be easy: there’s a toxic anti-American culture in our country. But we shall overcome.”

    502. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      Absolutely should provide more military aid. Including F-16 fighter jets which Ukrainian pilots are already being trained to fly.

      The Russian military is an incompetent mess. They have been trying to take the city of Bakhmut for months,and have failed. It’s time to give Ukraine the weaponry it needs to go on the offensive and push the Russians out of Ukraine.

    503. Paul says:

      Vivek would be the youngest president that we’ve ever had. He makes a good speech.

      This is why the GOP is just as corrupt and lying as Dems. They are backed by the large donors with these interests. They say one thing publicly but then do this behind voters backs, knowing most voters are unaware of these state laws.

      I thought he was quite articulate, but his message is very narrow and will have limited appeal to the average GOP voter…. he will have to branch out into a lot more areas to be a credible candidate.

      In any case, I agree he is an asset to the GOP. In my view, he should start out running for another office than President.

      At the moment, his candidacy is more of publicity stunt. Not that there is anything wrong than publicity stunts.

      As Clay Travis said, there is very little downside in running for President.

    539. jason says:

      We heard all this in 2015, when Amoral Scumbag was touting Jeb! as the juggernaut that was going to “clear the field”, “suck up all the money and endorsements”. No one would dare run against him, Rubio certainly wouldn’t. In the end, 17 candidates ran against him.

      If the Golden Calf wants the nomination, sorry Amoral Scumbag, he is not going to be anointed the nominee and no backroom deal is going to pick him. There will be no brokered convention.

      If the Golden Calf wants the nomination and deserves it, he needs to earn it against anyone who wants to run.

      No free lunch.

      Maybe he would have annexed the Donbas without actually controlling all of it or something like that.

      But a full scale attack on Kyiv? No way.

    550. jason says:

      Definitely a photo op.

      But a good one that will certainly piss Putin off.

    551. jason says:

      This photo op is the “in your face” type of thing that Putin understands.

    552. jason says:

      I think Trump’s response of “Don’t send tanks. End the war (without requiring Russia to pull back to pre-invasion borders) is weak.”

      That is not his position.

      Show me a statement where he said “Russia does not need to pull back”.

    553. JeffP says:

      Great move by McCarthy…Carlsons production team has all the tools needed to produce this in a professional way. It will be used in upcoming trials for sure now. I am sure Paul Ryan isn’t happy.

      561 We disagree. GFY. I still think Trump’s immediate surrender plan for Ukraine was weak. GFY.

      562 FBI agents, the Capitol police, Trump, etc could have personally invited me to go inside the Capitol on 1/6/2021 and I would have declined because it was stupid and pointless. The protesters gave the Dems an issue to keep hammering Republicans on. If everybody had stayed on the steps, the end result would be the same (Biden certified the winner) but no basis for Dems to manufacture a fake “threat to Democracy” narrative.

    559. Bitterlaw says:

      Trump called for an immediate end to the war. Where were Russian troops? In Ukraine. If the war stopped immediately, the Russian troops would still be in Ukraine. Trump’s opposition to sending tanks is the same position as JeffP.

      If anyone thinks that the Russia/Ukraine War will be the spark that starts WW III, keep an eye out for this:

    561. Phil says:

      Had Trump still been President there would have been no Russian invasion – period!

      Putin didn’t invade or even start the buildup of troops until Biden was inaugurated. Coincidence?


    562. Sheeple,Jr. says:

      #576- Phil
      Remember that Biden literally greenlighted the Russkies to invade Ukraine by promising Putin a “small slice” of Ukraine if the incursion was “smallish”!

    563. JeffP says:

      573 Definitely a lot of very stupid people trespassing. A few more serious crimes. Looking at some private video from Epoch times it was kind of obvious to me it was a setup…a wise person would know to run the other way. They should have all been charged in accordance to the law. Which primarily was trespassing. The feds and Dems have been demagogues and punitive beyond measure which is disgusting to me and that needs to be exposed.

    564. Phil says:

      Biden absolutely green lighted the whole thing.

      ….and right on cue Robbie shows up to proclaim Biden some sort of modern day Churchill.

      You can’t make this sh*t up.

    565. Robbie says:

      Marjorie Taylor Greene ????????

      We need a national divorce.

      We need to separate by red states and blue states and shrink the federal government.

      Everyone I talk to says this.

      From the sick and disgusting woke culture issues shoved down our throats to the Democrat’s traitorous America Last policies, we are done.

      – A call for secession from a MAGA heroine is really the chef’s kiss of Trumpism.

      I guess on president’s day, she decided to channel her favorite president, Jefferson Davis.

      Greene, like Trump, is a scourge on the Republican Party and the conservative movement.

    566. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      It was the Biden’s hasty, and cowardly, withdraw from Afghanistan that motivated Putin to attack Ukraine. Putin thought there would be no opposition.

      The U.S. initially also thought the Russians would easily occupy Ukraine, and offered to evacuate Zelensky from the country. That is when Zelensky responded “I need ammunition, not a ride” and the Ukrainians shocked the world by fighting back.

      The U.S. military,along with the Secretary of State, had been humiliated in Afghanistan, and made clear to Biden what needed to be done to help Ukraine.

      Wow, so many lies in this statement, where do I start.

      Maybe by giving it the “Intellectual Dishonesty Award” of the day.

      Trump said NOTHING about allowing the Russians the gained territory. Nada. Zilch. Zero.

      What he said was that he could offer incentives for both parties to settle and end the war. He said such a solution would end the war. He did not spell out any of the conditions for that.

      That may or may not be BS, but the claim that he advocated for the Russians to keep any territory beyond the pre-invasion borders is utterly and completely false.

    572. jason says:

      No blank check for Ukraine

      Who called for a blank check?

      Doesn’t think we should get involved in proxy wars with China over borderlands and Crimea

      I don’t advocate for any proxy war over Crimea. I support defending Taiwan

      The fear of Russia going in and steamrolling NATO countries has not even come close to happening”

      That is a long term objective, but many countries are certainly preparing for that.

      He thinks Russia is a 3rd rate military power and not the same threat to the US

      Good. So let’s stop worrying about “pissing Putin off”

      They are hostile but not on the same level as China

      We should confront threats as they occur. But I am glad he understands Russia is “hostile”

      There is nothing here that would keep me from voting for the Golden Calf.

      However, I will not vote for ANY candidate that does not support Ukraine.

    573. Bitterlaw says:

      “Immediate end” would mean everybody stays in place. Where were the Russian forces when Trump said it? In Ukraine. If Trump wanted Russian troops to withdraw, he would have said it. He was willing to be specific about tanks. Trump has no filter and he says what he means.

    574. Tina says:

      Good news, Jeffp. The Twitter file approach is actually the old Andrew Breitbart approach.

      Information is released in stages. You control all timing and release.

      Is that the real RDS now on China and Pooty poot, or is the real Rds the one who has a house record?

      Ukraine will not be the election saving issue. Folks are tired of the $$$.

    576. Tina says:

      We need the following officials in an American first Presidency. No Rinos and warmongers.

      Kash Patel

      Richard Grenell

      General Flynn

      Imagine Flynn cleaning out the DoD of the incompetent generals and woke leadership. A modern day Patton moment.

    577. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      It is easy to call for a settlement or end of a war when your commenting from the outside. Unfortunately, it is more difficult if your the actual leader of a nation.

      It’s nice to state “I will immediately reach a settlement” or “no blank checks” when your campaigning. Actually achieving those goals is another matter. There was a lot of criticism of the U. S.involvement in Ukraine by Republican candidates in the 2022 midterms. I believe a lot of it backfired, and resulted in the Democrats doing much better than expected.

      As I have stated before, I will vote for a Democrat rather than a Republican candidate who opposed military aid to the Ukraine. Unfortunately, there is a major split among Republicans on this issue — which is not good going into 2024. Hopefully, the Ukraine conflict will be resolved by then.

    578. Tina says:

      Timing and optics. Looks bad for Biden, especially with the staged look.

      You couldn’t make a more perfect example of America Last vs America First

    579. JeffP says:

      I think it’s debatable if Putin would have not invaded with Trump. After doing a deep dive into the recent history of Ukraine and the west since 2014 and reading Putins speeches I don’t think it would have mattered. I lean now that he would have invaded. I do think he underestimated greatly the reaction of the west and will of the Ukrainians to fight for their independence from their cousins.

    580. Tina says:

      There are still no plans for Biden to go to East Palestine,

      The people there “look too Trump, “ according to sources.

    581. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      Here are the results from the recent Gallup poll. Note the split among Republicans voters:

      “More Americans (39%) say the support being offered to Ukraine in the war is the right amount than think the U.S. is not doing enough (30%) or is doing too much (28%).

      Nearly half of Republicans, 47%, say the U.S. is doing too much, while 48% of Democrats say American involvement is about right. Most of the rest of Democrats, 41%, say the U.S. is not doing enough. Independents are evenly divided between the two camps, with 35% each saying the U.S. is doing too much and the right amount. Democrats are more likely than independents and Republicans to think the U.S. is not doing enough.”

    582. Bitterlaw says:

      592 There is no issue or situation where I will ever vote for a Democrat. In an extraordinary and unforeseeable circumstance, there might be a reason to abstain. Vote for a Democrat? Never.

      More lies.

      BS. That is a complete and utter falsehood.

      What Trump said he could bring about was an end to the conflict.

      He did not spell out the terms, he did not say anything about “staying in place”, what a crock of crap.

      Trump is talking about an agreement. He didn’t say the implementation would be “immediate”, he just said he would be able to bring about an agreement quickly.

    587. JeffP says:

      This is dystopian. A news item from @PeterSweden7

      The Great Reset

      A great Substack follow from Europe.

      Well my wife and I are already in the system with both facial and fingerprints thanks to us having Global Entry. Which we got for convenience because of our multiple trips a year to Europe. Took a Lufthansa flight a couple years ago and had to go through Face ID to board the plane. My wife’s attitude is they can know where we are at all times anyway if they want so what does it matter. I don’t like long lines.

      “More Americans (39%) say the support being offered to Ukraine in the war is the right amount than think the U.S. is not doing enough (30%)”

      Pretty good. Despite all the pro-Putin propaganda,
      70% of Americans think the aid we are providing is the right amount or we should be doing more (put me in the 30%).

      Putin lapdogs hardest hit.

    589. jason says:

      I won’t vote for a Dem but I certainly won’t vote for any R who doesn’t support Ukraine.

    590. Tgca says:

      DeSanctimonius also responds in the interview to Haley, Noem, and others criticizing him that it’s because he’s getting things done, saying when you do nothing as a gubbernor, no one criticizes you.

      He thinks it’s a compliment.

      So is he suggesting they were “do nothing gubbernors?”

      This guy is digging himself into a hole and it’s no surprising he’s dropping in polling as people get to see him.

    591. jason says:

      ” will of the Ukrainians to fight for their independence from their cousins.”

      Zzzzz… they were already independent and they are not “cousins”.

      Ethnic Russians are the largest minority in Ukraine but still only about 17%.

      And of course being an ethnic Russian does not mean you are loyal to Russia.

    592. jason says:

      Btw, I don’t know if Trump has or does not have a solution for the conflict. I think he believes he could put together a deal that would benefit both parties economically.

      But there is nothing he has said that involves “stay in place” as a solution. That is a complete fabrication and Bitter knows it.

    593. Tgca says:


      What a sad and STOOPID view of the world.

      That’s up there like saying I’ll never vote for an AA, Latino, Gay, White, Jew, Catholic, etc because they represent this or that.

      Choosing not to vote for someone based on perception alone without knowing what the candidate stands for on issues is the height of IGORENTZ!

      Many Dem candidates in history have been better than their GOP rivals, even today.

      I think voting should be on the qualifications and issues, and where the candidate stands, not their party registration, past or present, or the color of their skin, religion, sexual orientation, etc.

      A statement like that almost makes you want to require IQ tests for voters.

    594. jason says:

      JeffP with his “cousin” comment tries to make it look like Russia has any claim to Ukraine, so he can justify his support for Putin’s agenda. It has ZERO claim. Ukraine is a sovereign country and the fact it was once part of an artificially created Soviet Union does not make it part of Russia. And Russia has no right to invade “Russian speaking” parts of Ukraine anymore than Mexico has the right to invade California or Texas.

    595. jason says:

      Many Dem candidates in history have been better than their GOP rivals, even today.”


      That may or may not be true, but it is irrelevant.

      The Dems as a party represent a path towards a society that every conservative should oppose.

      If you vote for a Dem, you are supporting this agenda, even if there is a individual candidate that you might prefer.

      By voting for Biden, the Biden Troll and Amoral Scumbag supported his agenda. The whole thing.

      Bitter is right.

      Ukraine has been a vassal state of both Russia and since 2014 the US. How about corruptly independent?

    600. Paul says:

      I see a lot of MAGA community being against Ukraine online. My guess is Trump will see how the wind is blowing and come out opposed to Ukraine support. That will secure him the nomination.

      The general election will be a pro-Ukraine/ anti-Ukraine fight. On this topic, the two parties might stack up similarly to how they were pre-WW II.

    617. Tina says:

      All to taint a Dc jury pool that did not need to be tainted.
      As you know, the Govt has ALWAYS been able to release whatever video they wanted to be in the public domain. Defense attorneys were barred from doing so even when video contradicted Govt claims. It was all about setting the public narrative – and the jury pool – against defendants. That’s why so many efforts were made to move the cases.

    618. Tina says:

      And McCarthy continues to be impressive.

      He stated he would release the tapes and has fulfilled another promise.

      41,000 hours is a lot. The feds lied about the number of hours available.

    619. Tina says:

      If it were the chain smoker, the Pedo blob, or Ryano, we would not be given access to the tapes

    620. Phil says:

      McCarthy has indeed been surprisingly impressive so far. Sadly, McConnell has been his usual worthless self. Not surprising in the least.

      “The fear of Russia going into NATO countries and all of that and steamrolling…That has not even come close to happening,” DeSantis said. “I think they’ve shown themselves to be a third-rate military power. I think they’ve suffered tremendous, tremendous losses.””

    641. JeffP says:

      You know some posts are just so ridiculously stupid they not worth responding.

    642. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      I agree with DiSantis on the “blank check” comment. It is importance to focus on strategic objectives “identify what is the strategic objective that they’re trying to achieve” in Ukraine rather than giving Zelensky “an open-ended blank check.””

      I do not interpret DiSantis comment to indicate he will end military support for Ukraine, but instead it is a matter of accountability — how will the funding be used? what is the objective?

    643. Tina says:

      The warmongers are sure triggered today.

      But it’s their stupidity that will get us into war.

      All because of $$$ to the special interests, lobbyists, and warmongers being muzzled from 2017-2020.

    649. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      655. “polls based on the Quittens affiliated newspaper”.

      The “Quittens affiliated newspaper” is the Deseret News, which is owned by the LDS (Mormon) Church. It began publication in 1850.

    650. Paul says:

      Go suck Putin’s peepee.

    651. Phil says:


      SDC, I totally agree with DeSantis – both his statement that Biden’s disastrous Afghanistan pullout encouraged Putin to go ahead and actually invade plus his statement of the need to spell out specific objectives of US Ukrainian policy and align aide precisely with those objectives – no blank checks.

      Who in the hell could possibly disagree with any of that? I mean, who, outside of Bill Kristol and Alexander Vindman of course.

    652. Bitterlaw says:

      Being called a warmonger by somebody so cold that she wants to let Ukraine fall to Putin is a badge of honor.

    656. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      667. Totally agree Phil. Plus DiSantis has a military background, so he has experience as to how the military operates. Speaker McCarthy also objected to the “blank check” funding last year, and I expressed support for his comments then as well.

      James okeefe was let go today, he is no longer affiliated with Project Veritas.

    659. Tina says:

      Yes, Quittens did not endorse but his non endorsement was an endorsement for the Quittens newspaper approved candidate.

      Lee was so out of the mainstream thst Quittens was the only R Senator that refused to endorse him.

    687. Tgca says:

      DeSanctimonius has a MAJOR problem if he starts trying to compete with Trump on Ukraine for 3 main reasons.

      1st, Trump, as Commander-in-Chief, was in a vastly more superior role to DeSanctimonius who served as a legal attaché and not responsible for any military decisions. Like Mayor Butt, he served leaders in combat so I don’t see how he can compete with Trump on knowledge regarding military decision-making when Trump got daily briefings and actually made decisions. DeSanctimonius looks like a rookie compared to Trump, especially if he is echoing Trump’s position which he did in his Fox News interview I posted earlier.

      2nd, DeSanctimonius is being pushed by a certain donor class who want to back Ukraine no matter what so if he is not aligned with them on Ukraine, he risks losing their support, and let’s be clear, they want unlimited no questions asked funding for Ukraine.

      3rd, the MAGA folks are not STOOPID, and Trump will remind them that DeSanctimonius is backed by people who want to continue funding the Ukraine war without ANY limitations. Remember, a major attraction to Trump was he was NOT beholden to anyone. That is not the case for DeSanctimonius.

    688. Tgca says:


      Agreed! I think it is bad strategic move for the party and DeSanctimonius in particular to run against Trump, knowing that Trump was cheated from a 2nd term by voter fraud and manipulation. He deserves a 2nd shot at a fair election in my view and most in the GOP seem to agree.

      DeSanctimonius should have reached out and discussed with Trump if he had presidential ambitions after what Trump did for him. DeSanctimonius would be a NOBODY politically if not for Trump.

      Many MAGA and Trump supporters look at DeSanctimonius as a disloyal opportunist to run against Trump. That would most likely cost him millions of votes, especially in states like MI, PA, and WI, and without one or more of them, DeSanctimonius cannot win the GE.

      I think he would have been better served waiting until 2028 but as most politicians, they are greedy self-serving people.

      I know I will NEVER vote for DeSanctimonius if he runs against Trump in the primary. I know a few others here in Floreedah and elsewhere talking about it as well, even though they’re not as committed to a NO vote as I am. I strongly believe in loyalty. If you can’t be loyal to the leader and guy who started the MAGA movement and was responsible for your career, I can’t trust you, therefore NOTHING will ever make me vote for such disloyalty no matter who it is.

      It won’t be the 1st time, I refused to support the desired candidate because of their actions.

    689. Tgca says:


      But to be fair, DeSanctimonius team is also pushing it, not just TDS folks.

      He recently took a swipe at Trump in a press conference stating at least he was re-elected, in reference to Trump not being re-elected.

      DeSanctimonius is hoping to persuade Trump to bow out or have folks abandon him. Neither will happen.

      I wouldn’t be surprised if Trump lost the primary, he ran as 3rd party candidate or coordinated a write-in vote. This would do great harm to and distract a DeSanctimonius’ candidacy because it would be all people would talk about and his message would get lost.

      I don’t think DeSanctimonius can beat Trump in a head-on fight.

      Besides, I bet Trump would do competing rallies while DeSanctimonius is campaigning.

    690. JeffP says:

      I would say based on the last few days the foreign policy issue for the election of 2024 won’t be so much Ukraine but the strengthening Russia & China alliance.

      Not to mention India, South Africa, Iran & North Korea as part of this alliance as well. The world order has significantly changed in the last year.

    691. JeffP says:

      My prediction is that Trump gets the Bernie Sanders treatment and at some point and it will be down to Trump and Desantis just before Super Tuesday. One on one DeSantis wins.

His attacks on DeSantis are hurting him. I don’t care what the polls say now. Jeb was way ahead in 2015 at this point.

    694. Tgca says:


      …and then DeSantis loses the GE BIGLY and his career is over as many MAGA and working class fail to support him and he can’t pick up the needed states Trump won, especially as Trump bashes him through election day as disloyal and ungrateful.

      MI and PA will be nearly impossible for him as it has moved leftward.

      Russia suspends Nuclear Treaty with U.S.

      I think this is a maneuver to raise concern among the European general population. It will be interesting if we start to see a lot of anti-American sentiment pop up among the people in Europe as we did in the 80s.

      The world has changed dramatically since the 80s and after the Iraq debacle, America may find the weak leaders of Europe today may not have its back, especially with social media so prevalent to push and organize anti-war sentiment so quickly.

      This is turning into a real mess that could have been avoided.

      It’s too late and laughable that the EU thinks they will intimidate China now. There are no strong leaders in Europe these days.

      China sees this as its moment. It will defy the EU at its will without serious recourse . China is in no rush to go to war but it will supply Russia, Iran, North Korea, and commies in South America, as needed, to sow disorder among the West.

      A new expanded Cold War is starting and it’s likely to be more expanded than the last. China has economic resources USSR never did and the West has become too reliant on China to simply cut them off. This is all about China seeking to be the next Super Power as America diminishes in that role worldwide.

      As I stated months ago, the alliance in Asia and Africa and parts of South America, with more than 50% of the world population, is building against the West.

      Lemon is definitely weakened and on notice he may be next to be ousted at CNN which is not a bad thing at all in my view.

      CNN CEO Chris Licht rebuked Lemon on Friday for his remarks.

      “His remarks were upsetting, unacceptable, and unfair to his co-hosts, and ultimately a huge distraction to the great work of this organization,” Licht said.

      …but not UNTRUE! Nikki Haley is NOT in her prime! Spin it any way you wish.

      So CNN is upset about its female co-hosts being offended and female ratings but not that Haley made a BIGOTED discriminatory statement about a group of people.

      This is my proposal to resolve the war.

    704. jason says:


      Putin says if his stooge and spokesman Tucker Carlson is “distracted” by the J6 tapes, he is going to have to pull Tucker from Russian State TV.

      DeSantis would win in a one on one with Trump. It won’t be. Other candidates will divide the non Trump vote.

    708. Bitterlaw says:

    709. Phil says:

      If Trump runs as a third party candidate it won’t matter who any of us vote for.

      The outcome will be obvious.

    710. Pitchaboy says:

      Trump’s liquidity will not allow him to mount a third party challenge. His money is tied up in real estate and debt. His fund raising has been poor. His name calling and childish behavior not winning him donors.

    711. Pitchaboy says:

      And if he does not get the nomination, he will make a supreme effort to divide the base.

      I could see him aligning very well with DeSantis in message. Once more widely known I could see him having a Ben Carson type of impact but he would endorse DeSantis.

    714. Pitchaboy says:

      Who is this Vivek guy?

    715. JeffP says:

      Vivek Ramaswamy he has Ackman and Thiel financial backed candidate. He has been doing a lot of conservative shows the last couple weeks. Successful young businessman and leading voice against the CCP and wokism. .

      The wild card is a DC or Fulton County hack jury throwing Trump in prison – a distinct possibility that no one seems to be considering.”

      If this happened it would take years for trial and all appeals.

    720. jason says:

      Vivek has a good message but seems like a one trick pony. I don’t think there is enough there to make a serious candidacy.

      Of course, I said the same about Trump.

      Maybe Vivek just wants to build some name recognition to run for the senate in OH. Seems like a much better fit.

    721. Tgca says:


      Ben Carson? Seriously?

      He had no influence nationally. Nice bright guy but he did not move the needle in the election.

      I also doubt DeSanctimonius is going to want anyone to share the stage with him that could overshadow him.

      DeSanctimonius is not an energetic or charismatic speaker. Notice that the more he is out there speaking, the more he goes down in the polls. He has dropped quite a bit in the last month.

      He sounds like a prosecutor all the time. He is very defensive and thin-skinned. He has no idea what is about to hit him if he jumps into the national spot light. He will be hit from all ends. MSM, GOP, Trump. Having peeps suck up to you in Floreedah while you have the stage is not the same as the reception he’ll get in many competitive states.

      Does he really want a McCain/Palin optics where the nominee is outshining him with the base by an energetic running mate? Me thinks not.

    722. Tgca says:


      I think you will energize Trump supporters with a targeted prosecution. I think many would rally around him to spite the Dems.

      The pressure on the GOP leaders to come out and support Trump would be enormous because he’s single-handedly fighting the corrupt Dems weaponizing the justice system. Trump would be a HERO to most in the GOP fighting against corruption.

      You think the other GOP candidates are going to say Trump should step aside because he’s been indicted, knowing it’s all a sham?

      Which GOP candidates will have the nerve to suggest that and incur the wrath of the MAGA and GOP voters?

    723. Paul says:

      Trump will go anti-Ukraine and win the nomination. He will win even bigger if in jail…. And then lose bigly in the GE.

    724. Pitchaboy says:

      The Dems have made a calculated decision that they would rather face Trump than Desantis. They are confident of beating him like a drum. They are not going to lose sleep over Haley. Trump is not winning GA or PA and has no path to victory unless he runs against dopes like Kamala or Pete.

    725. JeffP says:

      Yeah I thought of the one trick pony thing too. The more I listen to him I find he makes connections with so many other areas of life both domestic and foreign policy it’s pretty inspiring really. That will come out in a debate I am sure.

    726. Bitterlaw says:

      I doubt that military aid to Ukraine will be a major issue in 2024. However, if it is and Trump opposes continued military aid, that would be a deal breaker for my primary vote.

    727. Paul says:

      I hope that Ukraine can push Russia back to a point where they can reach a fair peace negotiation. I hope that happens quickly. But, I think it may still be a year away.

    728. Pitchaboy says:

      The Russians dragged the Afghan war for a decade before they left with their tail between their legs. They knew they were getting whacked by 1983 but hung around till 1989 and wiped out 6% of the Afghan population.

      741 Pitch

      I don’t see DeSanctimonius winning MI, PA, or WI. Without at least one of them, he will NOT win the GE without taking another Dem stronghold – not likely.

      PA and MI voters pushed those states further left in 2022.

      I think Trump wins GA in the GE because they will not let what happened in 2020 happen again, especially since they just changed their election laws.

      PA is a toss-up, even for Trump because of the built-in fraud and increased Dem control in the state. DeSanctimonius will not energize the working class in PA the way Trump did. He has done no outreach to them and they are loyal to Trump and distrusting of many in the GOP.

    731. Tgca says:

      The 2022 election proved that even in bad times, Dems and Indys are still open to supporting incompetent Dem leaders.

      So the whole, “elections are referendums on incumbents” is now thrown out the window.

      In theory, Biden should have had a massive loss at all levels of fed and state gubbermint but he did not. That tells me either the electorate has changed so much it doesn’t matter how bad things get or the GOP does not have an attractive enough message to win over the trust of the electorate.

      Again, look at the Dem candidates in AZ and PA that won. Amazingly unfit and out of touch but largely embraced by many with Fetterman being treated for being a loony at this point.

    732. Pitchaboy says:

      GA is crazy. The candidate Trump opposed won handily and the one he supported lost handily. My gut sense is he screwed himself there with his post election antics. AZ is in a similar situation. No matter the candidate it is going to be rough going for GOP Presidential candidate. Only a poor economy or a lousy D candidate can save them. If the economy is passable, Biden wins.

      So Ukraine thinks it’s gonna March to Moscow and topple the Commies and create Nuremberg like trials? This plays into Russia’s hands about the West trying to destroy them and over half the world will agree with Russia that the West is trying to escalate a war.

      Likely, NATO and the West will NEVER go for that because it will mean WW3.

      If you think Russia is going to let the West invade it, oust their leaders, and change their gubbermint structure, you are ABSOLUTELY bonkers. No country with NOOKS would allow that, and I don’t blame them because we would not allow that in the US either.

      Russia was wrong for invading Ukraine but by doing what this Ukrainian nut job is suggesting means WW 3.

      It ain’t gonna happen. Ukraine is not worth it. Sorry! I bet most of the world will agree if it comes down to starting WW3.

      Agreed. I think the GOP is split into 3 main factions and has to work through these to find common ground if they want to win elections.

      1. Warmongering, neocons looking to democratize the world by force, the GWB/Cheney wing of the party.

      2. Inflexible stubborn crazy azz religious and cultural zealot right-wingers that want to legislate culture and morality to look like them, like DeSanctimonius and friends in Floreedah.

      3. Conservative back to basics everyday folk who want an open and honest free market and no longer trust party elites and don’t subscribe totally to factions 1 and 2 even if they have some traces of them like Trump working class MAGA supporters.

      Luckily, the majority of the party falls into the 3rd faction and hopefully they will prevail.

      But the 1st faction is fighting tooth and nail and don’t want to give up their power and cash machine of FOREVER WARS.

      The 2nd faction, what I call the Pat Buchanan 2020s Republicans, will ultimately fail as they always do when they venture too far in exaggerating risks and trying to force morality/culture on people, as were now seeing with Floreedah legislators pushing laws to look into medical records of college students too see who is getting counseling for LGBT issues.

      How do you read this comment as an admission by Biden he took out Nord Stream? What Biden is likely referring to is Europe has replaced Russian natural gas with U.S. and Qatar LNG. By the way the increased demand for U.S. LNG in Europe has resulted in the creation of thousands of high paying jobs in the U.S.

      Let’s divert funding for Americans coughing up blood to corrupt Commies in Ukraine who sell weapons we give them on the Black Market to potentially be used against Americans some day.

      The bottom line is people like Jadon and Bitter romanticize war and death because it gives them something to be proud of and brag about.

      The more deaths the better. To them, 4,000+ Americans killed in Iraq was just collateral damage to make them proud. The more dead Americans, the better. They be happier if it were 40,000 dead US service personnel for GWB ILLEGAL invasion of Iraq.

      I’d bet they be out their bragging if their own kids got killed in military action just to get attention.

      My boy died fighting Russians for Ukraine. I’m so proud of him. Best way a man could die, fighting for corrupt commies. Thinking of sending my wife over next. Maybe I’ll get a key to city or something with my picture in the paper so I can hang it on my wall.

It serves as the mechanics for gathering information, just like the US gubbermint gathers information for the census or pollsters gather polling info.

      Only 4 countries went on record supporting an Iraq invasion.

      The world got it right! The US got it wrong and was responsible for hundreds of thousands of deaths including over 4,000 US soldiers.

      Considering that my company, which at one point (back in early 90’s), actually had a delivery contract to local military installations and depots, used to deal with the very thorough manifests and packing lists that the military always required, it was not that much of an ask to get more support.

      It definitely would not have delayed any shipments, as anything that got loaded on a transport definitely already had the appropriate paperwork, just make several more copies and supply them to a person/firm picked out by congressional Republicans.

    823. Tgca says:


      Your TDS is on display. Trump was POTUS, not King. He made clear what he wanted to do in DC but it takes Congressional action.

      It would also take time to implement what’s necessary to drain the swamp. One of the things he was pushing was decentralizing DC but that takes years to relocate agencies and requires congressional action and budget allocations, as well as working through numerous court challenges that are inevitable.

      What Trump did in one term was set the tone for necessary changes in DC, the 1st time in decades, and that resonated with many.

      It may make you feel better to rant and rave against Trump for not getting it done but no one, including DeSanctimonius and Swamy are going to be able to change the system without working through the system. Politicians on both sides have skin in the game so expect resistance from both.

    824. jason says:

      The real reason Tina, NYC, JeffP, Tgca and the rest of the Putin stooges and lackeys here want to deny aid to Ukraine so Putin can have his victory.

      It is working.

      “Yet Ukrainian military officials say U.S. weapons are making all the difference. To show how, a senior Ukrainian military intelligence officer and several special forces soldiers guided USA TODAY in mid-February to a secret location on a ridge a few miles outside the frontline town of Bakhmut, in Ukraine’s mineral-rich eastern Donbas region.

      “This weapon changed the trajectory of the war for us,” said Fury as he stood on frozen ground near what he regards as one of the Ukrainian military’s most prized possessions: an American-made M777 howitzer, a powerful, towable and easily hidden long-range artillery weapon his unit had named “Sofiyka.” Made of steel and titanium, its hydraulic hoses and pumps enable its artillery turret to slide in and out with relative ease.

      Sofiyka was backed against a thicket of trees, its cannon aimed toward Bakhmut.

      A few hours earlier, another howitzer operated by Fury’s unit named “Krishna,” located on an adjacent ridge, had been fired on by a Russian shell.

      It had not sustained any damages. “It’s a day spent in vain here if you haven’t been fired at,” said Fury, chuckling to himself. As he spoke, there was a deep thud as Krishna sent an explosive payload sailing toward Russian targets in Bakhmut.

      Russian military manpower and equipment reserves are significantly depleted and it’s unclear if Moscow has enough power to launch a major, sustained new offensive, either timed to the anniversary or in the coming months, according to military analysts at the Institute for the Study of War, a Washington, D.C., think tank.”

      An offensive that would, for example, enable Russia to capture and hold new territory, as Ukraine did when it reclaimed dozens of its settlements in Kherson and Kharkiv, in the south and northeast, this past fall, forcing a hasty Russian retreat.”

    825. jason says:

      Vladimir Putin and Wang Yi, China’s top foreign policy official, vowed to ‘strengthen’ ties between Moscow and Beijing at a meeting in the Kremlin ahead of the first anniversary of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine ”

      Hilarious. The Putin stooges say Russia is weak and ineffective and could not harm a fly, but they are “concerned” about an alliance with China.

      The hypocrisy is astounding.

    826. jason says:

      The fact is both China and Russia are threats to the US national interests, and both have to be dealt with, in the real world you don’t get to choose adversaries and the order in which you deal with them.

      No! Warmongering is lying to the American public and going into Iraq on false pretense in hopes of democratizing a country with a long history of unreconcilable conflicts so you can get favorable contracts, resulting in deaths of hundreds of thousands of innocent civilians and 4,000+ American soldiers and then making a video for the Corespondents Dinner crawling on a floor looking for WMD poking fun at the failure for laughs while thousands of family members are painfully suffering the loss of a loved ones by your lies and failures.

      That’s WARMONGERING!

      It is a leap of logic to conclude that demanding accountability from Ukraine is being Putin’s stooge. These Zelenskyy brown-nosers are strange.

    831. Tgca says:


      I apologize if I missed such posts of Tina but I don’t recall ever hearing her say no funding to Ukraine or to stop funding immediately. I thought her position was the “open checkbook” funding without restrictions which is reasonable and many people have expressed concern over.

    840. Tgca says:

      852 Pitch

      I agree Trump’s biggest mistake was not cleaning house from day 1. But as a non-politician or DC creature, I give him some leeway here because usually newly elected outsiders rely on current party leaders and key insiders to assist in getting the right people in the right key positions. Just like recommendations are made to a president on nominating justices they never heard of, they rely on others for recommendations.

      To the extent Trump vetos qualified recommendations, that’s on him but as we all know, DC is a place of self-interests and opportunists who constantly work against one another to self promote over supporting joint goals.

      This happens in many admins and why you see infighting or people coming and going.

      I also think a Trump made a mistake having Ivanka and Jared as leading consultants. They were not aligned with his vision and should not have been giving the full access they were given.

      Lastly, Trump has to learn to trust those under him unless they are not promoting his goals and objectives. This is a challenge Clinton also faced his 1st 2 years as well. Many leaders are Type A and try to control all things which you can’t do in a very large gubbermint organization.

    850. Bitterlaw says:

      I get that conclusion from your statements that Zelensky is a grifter and other statements. I get that conclusion from your refusal to answer a very simple question. You can’t still be mixing pain meds and limoncello.

      Go phuq yourself.

    852. Tina says:

      I support audits of every cent going to that corrupt country.

    853. Bitterlaw says:

      And Tina answers the question in 857 by refusing to answer the question. The HHR Jury can take an adverse inference from her refusal to answer.

    854. Bitterlaw says:

      One last time, Tina. Do you support an immediate end of US military aide to Ukraine?

    855. Tina says:

      Oh phuq off. We just disagree on this one. We have bigger problems here domestically than a second or third rate power in Pooty poot.

    856. NYCmike says:

      “Tina is not asking for undefined accountability. She wants the aid to Ukraine to stop immediately.”

      -If Tina is asking for aid to stop, I disagree with her.

      The fact that congressional Republicans didn’t insist on an auditor, yet jason is certain there were packing lists and manifests (I agree!), is more proof that bad reasons were behind that decison not to.

    857. Tina says:

      Define immediate

    858. NYCmike says:

      Should the voters in East Palestine give a hoot about Ukraine right now?

      Should the Republican Party be more worried about their concerns or those of Ukraine?

    859. NYCmike says:

      “Tina will never give anyone a straight answer because she knows she’d have to admit she supports Putin and thinks he is the epitome of a strong ruler.”


      Idiotic statement, but par for the course.

    860. Tina says:

      Bl, is smoking something.

      I never called for an immediate end.

      I have said only the following:

      I want audits of the buckets of cash going to the grifter. I doubt that 60 percent is reaching the grifter, but that is another story.

      Ccp,and Pooty pooot will grow closer. This is not Bls fault that he believed the opposite. T

      The more the buckets of cash are funneled over there and the weaker our economy becomes/higher inflation, the more the war becomes unpopular here. This is like the gulf war redone.

    861. Tina says:

      And I also believe that it is more likely than not, Biden blew up nord 2.

      If I am wrong, I will admit it.

    862. Bitterlaw says:

      882 Playing Bill Clinton word games. Immediate means right now. As in no more military aid. None. No more.

    863. Bitterlaw says:

      Vance is really impressive as he has remained in Ohio, not DC.

      He is an upgrade over the Rino.

    865. Pitchaboy says:

      Okay BL. I will answer that. Ask Zelenskyy to account for the 40 billion given so far. If he can’t the free meal ends. If he can, going forward account for everything. This is simply good book keeping and accountability and has nothing to do with love for Putin. If my kids can account for money I give them, Zelenskyy bloody well can.

    866. NYCmike says:

      Pitchaboy – it would also be useful in letting us know which weapons actually work and are worth investing more in.

      No good reason not to insist on an auditor right from the outset, except to allow people to skim off the top……couple of billion here or there, all of a sudden we are talking about a lot of money!

      1% of a billion is 10 million!

      I would be happy with a tenth of that…..the amount of money the United States throws around outside our borders is quite impressive.

      The “Big Guy” will get his cut as well!

      874 Tina

      These polls are early but a point in time and seem to follow other current trends. Trump is in a good position at 50%, and ranking support for him if he was not their 1st choice shows 38% of DeSanctimonius supporters would still choose him while 45% of Trump supporters say the same of DeSanctimonius, who is at 30%, 20 points behind Trump.

      This is interesting because it tells me a good portion of Trump 1st (55%) and DeSanctimonius 1st (62%) supporters are CLAIMING they will not automatically support the other in the primary as a 2nd choice.

      This is much more alarming for DeSanctimonius than Trump based on large lead Trump has over DeSanctimonius translating to more lost votes for DeSanctimonius than Trump.

      In addition, 18% of DeSanctimonius supporters would choose Haley over Trump while only 5% of Trump supporters would chose Haley over DeSanctimonius. That tells me we appear to have many TDS supporters in DeSanctimonius’ camp that will support “I Feel Your Pain Haley” over Trump.

      This poll also showed Haley rising to 6% overall and DeSanctimonius losing some ground in Jan and Feb while Trump stays consistent or had minor gains since Dec 2022.

      Make of it what you wish since it’s early and only one poll but it does suggest a Civil War could be brewing in the GOP and Trump will more likely to be victorious but at a cost not helpful in the GE.

      I’m not sure a lot of mind changing will happen from now to the end of the year.

    870. Bitterlaw says:

      Pitch – Your condition is based on a false assumption. How do you know that there is no accountability?

      I want Russians driven out of Ukraine. I will let the accountants have at it when that is accomplished.

      By the way, I do not believe the US had anything to do with the pipeline. There is no evidence beyond a conspiracy theory by a Democracy Now! contributor.

    871. Tgca says:


      Accountability is not only about dollars but safety. We do know that weapons have made their way to Africa and used in conflicts over there because complaints have been made public to the US through African Country conference.

      So unless you wish to call African leaders and the president of Nigeria, a U.S. ally, a liar, I don’t see how he should be given less credibility than leaders from a very corrupt like Ukraine.

      905. Totally agree Jason. The proof is we see the weaponry on the front line. Does anyone question that the Ukrainians are fighting bravely? And that American weaponry is critical in this effort? I am seeing all sorts of American weaponry. Compare how the Ukrainians fight to American client armies in South Vietnam, Iraq or Afghanistan. Remember the Afghan army that did not put up much of a fight when the Taliban took over?

Also if that number three could win one of the first four primaries. Which I doubt. Anyone think Scott or Haley have a chance in SC? I could see DeSantis winning Iowa? Trump NH and NV?

    898. JeffP says:

      The winner of California, Tennessee, North Carolina and Virginia would be the front runner. I think Trump won all four in 2016 with four main candidates left. One on one is the only way I think DeSantis could pull it off.

      NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg says that the military alliance has seen “some signs” that China may be planning to support Russia in its war in Ukraine, and strongly urged Beijing to desist from what would be a violation of international law.

      The hypocrisy of the west is stunning. Yes our side. What’s good for me is not good for thee. The anti war protests started up in Germany and France last weekend and will grow in the weeks ahead as it warms up they always do. They really know how to protest in France. Liberte’ ! Pass the iodine pills.

      Tina …Hawley is my favorite in DC for sure. Vivek did mention a complete overhaul or something like that of the FBI yesterday. He is definitely an idealist. Like me. I am glad he is in the race he will be great on the debate stage to clarify the issues and message. I doubt he comes close to winning any electors. I absolutely love his anti woke messaging and believe it’s the most important battle we face domestically. He also is mentioned a complete rejection of digital ID and currency.

    911. NYCmike says:

      “The hypocrisy of the west is stunning. Yes our side. What’s good for me is not good for thee.”


      That’s a ridiculous statement.

      Russia invaded Ukraine, and THAT is why the person said China supporting them would be a violation of international law.

    912. JeffP says:

      940 It’s not about Russia and Ukraine. It’s been our foreign policy for sometime. But when your in the US never does any wrong in the world camp it would sound ridiculous. It’s blowing up in our face (no pun intended) and we are living in the most dangerous time in our history.

      Biden’s blowing up the Nordsteam pipeline was a violation of international law…unless you believe the lie. Which I don’t.

    920. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      943. Please provide the proof that Biden blew up the Nord Stream pipeline.

    921. JeffP says:

      949 There is a lot of circumstantial evidence. Eventually the truth will be verified come out and it will be undeniable. It always does. Sy Hersh has great sources and has been vindicated throughout his history of reporting. I have watched two interviews with Hersh and his reporting on this and he is not making this up. Also both Nuland and Biden both said there will be no more NorthStream Pipeline watch the video. Nuland has been used by multiple Administrations for decades to meddle and interfere in Russia, Ukraine and other Eastern European countries. It makes no logical sense that Putin would destroy the pipeline. The EU or Germany has refused to do ANY investigation and it’s been months. Finally, the Biden administration is corrupt and has zero character and deceiving and lying is compulsive. Elon Musk nailed it yesterday on Nuland. If you don’t understand her involvement you don’t have the full picture. I spend four to five weeks a year in the EU, love the various cultures, the people, food. Wish I could retire there. You get a completely different perspective of how the world sees US foreign policy.

    922. JeffP says:

      China is playing hardball. Must have been some meeting with the Russians. I thought this was a joke at first. This is going to make the EU more reluctant to go further in Ukraine. Their economy is just as ties as ours to China maybe more. Shlit.

      The US is the No.1 violator of sovereignty and interferer in the internal affairs of other countries. Since the end of WWII, the US has reportedly sought to subvert 50+ foreign governments, interfered in elections in 30+ countries & attempted assassination on 50+ foreign leaders.

      So Russia invades Ukraine but it is the US that “is interfering in the internal affairs of Ukraine”.

      You have to give it to the Putin Stooges, Pravda would be proud of the brainwashing.

    926. jason says:

      949 There is a lot of circumstantial evidence”



      There is an uncorroborated article without ANY confirmed sources written by a disgraced far left hack known for silly conspiracy theories.

      Yeah, the guy wrote a true story 50 years ago, most of what he wrote since is pure garbage.

      There is no evidence, real or circumstantial, that the US blew up the pipeline.

      None, zero, zilch, nada.

      Is it possible some rogue operation had support from some rogue US agency for this? Possible, not probable, and there is no evidence of it.

      What I CAN tell you is that the theory that Biden colluded officially with the Norwegians to blow up the pipeline sounds like “Deep State” BS.

    927. jason says:

      Amoral Scumbag and the TDS morons hardest hit. The Golden Calf rightfully credits Trump for his career and rightfully credits Trump for having a POSITIVE impact on the GOP and the country.

      “Some DC commentators have opined that Donald Trump’s nomination represented a hostile takeover of the Republican Party,” DeSantis wrote. “But this analysis gets it exactly backward.”

      The governor also compares Trump to one of the Republican Party’s most revered figures: former President Ronald Reagan.
      Florida’s ‘Reverse Woke Act’ Aims to Hold Leftist Execs ‘Accountable’ for the Consequences of Their Policies

      “Since Ronald Reagan flew back to California on January 20, 1989, the GOP grass roots had been longing for someone who rejected the old-guard way of doing business and who could speak to their concerns and aspirations,” DeSantis wrote.

      He added, “Trump supported policies that appealed to the base in a way that GOP leaders in the DC swamp had been either incapable of doing or unwilling to do.”

    928. jason says:

      THIS is how the Golden Calf should campaign, as building on Trump’s positive legacy, not as an anti-Trump trying to destroy it.

    929. Bitterlaw says:

      So Jason agrees that DeSantis should not be running as anti-Trump. Should Trump be running as anti-DeSantis?

    930. Tina says:

      Jeffp, I don’t know anything about him.

      I like more candidates in the race. Hawley and Noem are my favorites.

    931. Tina says:

      From the Newsweek article:

      Western elites may have a bottomless well of enthusiasm for the Ukrainian cause, but like most of Biden’s policies, this one is fading in popularity. According to a poll taken last week by the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research, for the first time since Russia’s invasion only a minority of Americans now favor sending military aid to Ukraine—48%, compared to 60% in May 2022. Many point to a worsening U.S. economy, the prospect of a deeper recession, persistent inflation, staggering new national debt figures, and federal budget woes that could soon affect entitlement spending to argue that American domestic needs trump Ukraine’s military effort thousands of miles away in places of dubious importance to U.S. security interests. With amplifying tales of Ukrainian corruption, moreover, a plurality of Americans—38%—now oppose direct financial aid to the Ukrainian government. Only 37% are in favor of it, while 23% take a neutral position.

    932. Bitterlaw says:

      It is difficult to keep up with the changing language. Now, “Proving military aid to Ukraine to defend its citizens and territory from Russia’s brutal invasion” is “Ukrainian cause.”

    933. Pitchaboy says:

      Mr. Biden is boasting about paying Ukrainian pensions. While he can’t keep with Medicare and Social Security. You cannot make this up. 3 seconds to Ukrainian rabid dog ….,,,

    934. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      The Tablet Magazine, had a good commentary on Seymour Hersh and his claims:

      “…former senior intelligence official I spoke with described the Hersh piece as “Steele Dossier-quality garbage.” Journalists say the Hersh story was rejected by several publications before he decided to publish it on his own Substack. The issue was apparently that the story was single-sourced, but the real problem seems to be something else.

      Hersh has enjoyed an impressive journalistic career that includes a Pulitzer Prize for his reporting on the 1968 My Lai massacre, when U.S. soldiers slaughtered Vietnamese civilians. He is also notorious for getting spun up by his sources. Most notably, he fell for forged documents claiming that John Kennedy bought Marilyn Monroe’s silence about their alleged affair. Hersh was planning to use them for his book The Dark Side of Camelot but luckily for him questions about the documents’ authenticity surfaced before publication and he had time to withdraw the sections based on them.”

      Hersh is a far left loon.

    935. Pitchaboy says:

      The US fought a proxy war is Afghanistan against Russia. It took us 10 years to kick them out from that remote site and meanwhile we strengthened the Taliban and created Bin Laden. Now a proxy war is being waged in a not so remote place for the Russians. In a decade, after we borrow and spend a trillion dollars, we will be fighting the proxy war with Russia and China in Ukraine. And some here will be gung-ho about more aid. Ukraine will stink in 2024 and the R candidates are going to run from it.

    936. Bitterlaw says:

      So Pitch wants Russia to do whatever it wants. Got it.

    937. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      961. Here is the methodology of the Associated Press-NORC Center fo Public Affairs Research survey which Americans supporting providing military weapons to Ukraine by a 48% to 29%, with 22% not taking a position:

      “Data were collected using the AmeriSpeak Omnibus®, a monthly multi-client survey using NORC’s probability-based panel designed to be representative of the U.S. household population. The survey was part of a larger study that included questions about other topics not included in this report.
      During the initial recruitment phase of the panel, randomly selected U.S. households were sampled with a known, non-zero probability of selection from the NORC National Sample Frame and then face-to-face)”

      Sorry, but that is not a poll. Its akin to a marketing survey. The Newsweek article that cited it was bitterly anti-Ukraine. No mention of the Gallup poll results.

    938. Paul says:

      Pitchaboy: a proxy war draining both Russia and China. What is wrong with that.

    939. Paul says:

      So for 10% of our military’s annual budget, we stop both Russia and China.

    940. jason says:

      Bitterlaw says:
      February 23, 2023 at 9:10 am

      So Jason agrees that DeSantis should not be running as anti-Trump. Should Trump be running as anti-DeSantis?”

      Of course he should. That strategy can work for him.

      It won’t work for the Golden Calf.

      This is not exactly rocket science.

    941. jason says:

      Bitterlaw says:
      February 23, 2023 at 11:41 am

      So Pitch wants Russia to do whatever it wants. Got it.”

      Pitch and the rest of the Putin lapdogs are too cowardly to state that is what they want.

      So they couch it in inane and fake BS like “accountability” and “WWIII” and “corruption” and “Russian nationalism” and the other 900 excuses they have for letting Putin continue to slaughter Ukrainians while denying them the means to defend themselves.

    942. jason says:

      The Golden Calf is going to need some Trump supporters to see him as “the next Trump” and vote for him even if they like Trump. He can’t do that by being the “anti-Trump”.

      Trump, on the other hand, only needs his own supporters to get 35-40% of the primary vote. He doesn’t really need Golden Calf supporters.

      Of course, he will need them in the GE just like the Golden Calf would need Trump supporters.

      That is why the Civil War the TDS morons are so excited about just helps the Dems.

    943. jason says:

      and the R candidates are going to run from it”

      Those that do won’t be getting my vote and won’t be getting a lot of R votes.

    944. Pitchaboy says:

      The Ukrainian rabid canine is back with old drivel. He loves starting wars. Problem is, doesn’t seem to know how to finish it except with Utopian pablum he pukes.

    945. Bitterlaw says:

      So any candidate except Trump running for the GOP nomination in 2024 wants a civil war. Got it.

    946. Pitchaboy says:

      Nothing wrong in draining Russia or China. Appears it is draining the US as well. We are running on borrowed money as it is. Trump is not going to support this. His argument will be that if he were President, the invasion would not have happened. And there is significant rationale to that argument.

    947. Bitterlaw says:

      And that argument, which I reject, is irrelevant now. Russia did invade. Ukraine is fighting back with US and other nations supporting it. There are only a few possible outcomes:

      Russia pulls back to pre-invasion borders

      Ukraine surrenders

      A “peace agreement” that favors Putin and strips Ukraine of territory is forced upon Ukraine by the failure to continue supporting it.

      This war is completely different than Vietnam and Afghanistan. There are no US troops fighting. The Ukrainians are doing the fighting and dying.

    948. Pitchaboy says:

      There were no US troops fighting and dying in Afghanistan from 1979-89. It was Regan and Bush borrowing and spending while fighting the proxy war.

    949. Bitterlaw says:

      You are a doctor so I know you are intelligent. Here are 2 questions:

      What happens to Ukraine if the military aid stops?

      Do you care?

    950. Pitchaboy says:

      This one will be no different. Lots of money will be spent. Lots of lives lost. Ukraine won’t give up. Putin won’t pull back. At some point the American people will tune out and demand a pull out. If this thing ends in Ukraine victory, I doff my hat. Chances of that happening are slim.

    951. Pitchaboy says:

      A decisive victory and liberation was when India defeated Pakistan and liberated Bangladesh in 1971. Not happening here with Russia and it’s thousand nukes.

      On Nov. 18, the Swedish Prosecutor’s Office also acknowledged that the explosions were an act of sabotage. Remarkably, however, no one in the West seems remotely interested in finding out who is behind it.”

It is not a coincidence that Putin attacked in 2014 and 2022…..look at the weak leadership in Washington D.C.

      The Guardian reports at least some of classified docs at MAL were “White House schedules” in the possession of a junior aide initially stored at different location. Also, it seems Trump was unaware of the box & his folks were responsive to DOJ requests.

The fact that our Dementia Patient in Chief has funnelled over $100 billion in taxpayer funds, most of which has ended up in the pockets of Zelensky and his band of thugs.

      Zelensky says it is “dangerous” for Americans to question the amount of aid being given to Ukraine because “if Ukraine loses, Russia is going to enter Baltic states, NATO member states and the U.S. will have to send their sons and daughters to war and they will be dying.”

      China is taking advantage of the situation. Their “peace” offerings are nothing except an attempt to gain an advantage for themselves, maybe Russia, and also to hurt the United States and Europe.

      BUT, the headline will be “China calls for PEACE talks!”. That’s what most people will see and hear.

      b) Providing aid to Ukraine to defend itself against Russia.

      China put out their peace plan. I stated what I thought about it. Of course it is a sham of an offer, designed to take advantage of their “above the fray” position, which is a pretty smart tactic on their part……do you disagree with that?

      I also asked which items in their list you didn’t like, which neither one of you answered. It is as much a public relations battle as a military one at this point. Unless all of the European nations are willing to fight a lot harder, with soldiers, tanks and airplanes ready to go, I don’t think the American people want to get any more involved than we are.

      You trust Biden and his administration to have a competent response going forward?

    1060. NYCmike says:

      Also – NO, I do not think we should think about sending any soldiers or planes. Tanks should have been sent a year ago, if we were going to do it….Biden didn’t.

      Again, I believe the fact that we have incompetent leadership has to help inform your opinion about what should be done. I have ZERO confidence in both the current civilian as well as the military leadership of our nation at the present time.

      I think the more people see of DeDanctimonius, the more they will shy away from his extremism. His base in Floreedah is waaaay right of America, and that’s why you have folks like Haley, Hogan, and Sununu attacking him and gaining more attention because they seem an opportunity if Trump is not the nominee.

      China put out their peace plan. I stated what I thought about it. Of course it is a sham of an offer, designed to take advantage of their “above the fray” position, which is a pretty smart tactic on their part……do you disagree with that?”

      Yes, I disagree. Your 12 point China plan is not “above the fray” or a “smart tactic”.

      It is an obvious one-sided pro-Putin gimmick designed to ensure Russia’s victory and unilateral surrender by Ukraine.

      The US, EU and NATO leaders have all denounced it for what it is, a complete joke.

      “Above the fray”? LOL

      It is actually a PR disaster for China, because previously they had declared themselves “neutral”. and now everyone can see that was BS.

      Both Pooty poot. And thr grifter can both phuq off.”

      Ah, yes, moral equivalency between Putin and Zelensky.

      One is a despotic dictator with expansionist visions who invaded a sovereign country and is responsible for the deaths of hundreds of thousands of combatants and civilians. Who is responsible for numerous war crimes, including torture, rape, and exiling of innocent people. Who has displaced 10 million people from their homes in a humanitarian crisis of gigantic proportions. Who is systematically shelling and bombing populated areas. Who is destroying Ukraine’s infrastructure and economy and causing great hardship to millions of people.

      The you have the democratically elected President of Ukraine, who has bravely led his country in opposition to Putin’s Greater Russia/New USSR ambitions and steadfastly resisted the invasion, along with a well thought out plan to garner international support and aid to assist Ukraine in its struggle against a much larger force both in manpower and equipment.

      Ah, yes, I forgot. He is a “grifter” and he walks his dog and his wife shops in Paris.

      NYC will hate this point by point rebuttal of the China Peace Plan he thinks so highly of. And NYC will be happy the author does agree with 2 or 3 of the points.

      “It reads a bit like a PR spin for China and effort to make it look good with the global south and little in terms of specifics around hard points to bring solutions and peace. Lots of warm words which say very little and no opportunity to criticize the West missed – but no criticism of Russia, the invader who actually caused all this.

      China supporting sovereignty, territorial integrity & international law – well, hell yes, that means Russia has to withdraw to February 2014 settings, so getting out of Donbas, Kherson, Zaporizhzhya and Crimea.

      Security of one country should not be at the expense of others – well Ukraine is the victim here of Russian aggression and insecurity as a result of Russian invasion. Georgia and Moldova have suffered a similar fate. China blames NATO though. But what’s the hard solution? Get Ukraine to give up on NATO membership for State of Israel type security guarantees from the US and its allies? Remember lots of countries want to join NATO, and not the CSTO, because it’s Moscow that keeps doing the invading. Stop invading and generally being a bad actor and then NATO enlarging might stop.

      Ceasing hostilities – at least no mention of an immediate ceasefire which Ukraine will never accept until Russian troops leave its territory (see point 1 about Russia’s illegal occupation). And momentum is on Ukraine’s side and it thinks it can get its land back now thru military means. Why give up and cede the momentum back to Russia?

      Resuming peace talks – sure. We look forward to China actually doing something as it’s been sitting on its backside for the past year and enjoying the benefits of cheap, discounted Russian energy. What’s changed? It now actually thinks Putin might lose so is now intervening to try and save his arse. China worries that post Putin Russia might end up being aligned with the West against China. That’s a nightmare scenario so hence this peace effort to try and give Putin a face-saving peace.

      Resolving the humanitarian crisis – absolutely. But the humanitarian crisis that Russia caused by its invasion of Ukraine.

      Protecting civilians and POW – absolutely.

      Keeping nuclear plants safe – absolutely, but again it’s been Russian troops trying to capture them and cut them off from the Ukrainian grid that’s been the problem.

      No use of WMD – clear message there to Putin. A red line for China on escalation to WMD. That’s positive.

      Facilitating grain exports – agreed. Again, message to Putin, don’t starve the global south. Again positive.

      Stopping universal sanctions – well yeah if Russia just abides by point 1 and left Ukraine.

      Don’t rock global supply chains – now we are getting at what China really wants. China hates this war as it has disrupted the status quo on global markets and caused a global cost of living crisis which even Xi has struggled with. Again, a clear red line to Putin – don’t escalate to the point that it hurts the global economy.

      Promoting post war reconstruction. Nice that China seems to be offering to pay something – albeit let’s hope it’s not thru those market interest rates it’s entities have lent at thru the OBOR initiative which has ended up bankrupting most of the recipients and where China is now resisting restructuring.”

      1111. No Russian is going to honestly answer a poll. Russia is a place where a lot of people are still mysteriously falling out of windows from tall buildings.

      The fact that Russia had to close its borders, and have the military patrol them, to prevent military age males from fleeing (although about a half million still made it out) after the last military draft tells you all you need to know about the popularity of Putin’s war.

    1086. Bitterlaw says:

      Maybe Trump can call on his buddies in North Korea to get involved. Treating that crazy tyrant as a legitimate world leader was one of Trump’s mistakes.

      Western leaders should tell NK that if it wants to waste money on nukes that is up to them but if one of those nukes is ever used, it is the end for them. Hopefully, the North Koreans will eventually grow tired of starving and end the regime.

      Trump’s share of Indy voters remained consistent in 2016 and 2020 at about 43 to 45%, depending which poll you use.

      His percentage of those identifying GOP/leaning/moderate also was consistent in both elections.

      Where he did lose were those voters who did not turn out in previous elections that CLAIM they were moderates. Biden won 62% of them and I seriously doubt they were just moderate Dems. I would bet these non-previous voters brought into voting by the Dems leaned more left than moderate.

      Trump also made gains and won white suburban voters in 2020, and made gains with women and Latinos.

      So unless you have a different definition of moderates, Trump has been consistent in the white moderate votes. AA, Latino, and Asian moderates still generally vote Dem regardless of how they describe themselves. These groups are more hesitant to claim they’re liberals.

    1088. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      Putin supposedly planned a major military offense for early 2023. So far, after months of siege, he has not even taken Bakhmut.

      As far as China. The Chinese have always claimed a large area of Russian Siberia near their border belongs to China. There have been border clashes between Russia and China in the past.

      China abstained, rather than voted against, a recent UN vote to condemn the Russian invasion of Ukraine. China is like a hungry tiger, and will favor whatever outcome that furthers its own interest. I don’t think their unhappy that Putin is getting mauled.

    1089. Tgca says:

      Having lived and worked among a diverse Asian population in San Francisco for two decades, as well as in NYC and the Sewer State, I always found it so odd that like Jews, Asians cling to the Dem party when often they have little in common culturally.

      I believe that is because both groups suffered oppression historically and the GOP is generally seen as oppressive or intolerant of them is by association, they prefer Dems.

      All my Asian co-workers and friends could not understand how I supported the GOP, and these were not generally politically active people either. It’s just engrained in the culture that Dems are the way to go in the US.

      Biden currently has a 56% approval rate with Asians. He won them at 63% in 2020.

      By a 2 to 1 margin, they are against states banning school books and limiting historical viewpoints on teaching about race in school. To them, that is extreme and culturally not acceptable. …and Asians, probably more than any other group value education above all and impress it upon their children so that is very interesting position they take.

      DeSanctimonius is lucky Floreedah does not have a large Asian population.

    1091. Sheeple,Jr. says:

      For the past week, there have been a lot of stories about China sending offensive weapons to Russia.
      The story has now leaked to the Washington Post. Here is an excerpt of what has concerned the Biden Administration.

      China is considering sending Russia lethal military aid in the form of artillery shells as President Vladimir Putin’s army rapidly depletes its supply of ammunition a year into his invasion of Ukraine, U.S. officials said, a prospect that has alarmed those in the Biden administration who believe Beijing has the ability to transform the war’s trajectory.

      There is no evidence that any weapons transfers have occurred, these officials said, speaking on the condition of anonymity to discuss the U.S. government’s assessment. But if China does move ahead, it would mark the first time Beijing has provided lethal aid in the conflict despite repeated warnings by the United States not to provide such support. It would also violate the spirit of a peace plan Chinese leaders proposed Friday.

      The aid being contemplated consists of 122-millimeter and 152-millimeter rounds, which Russia has in dwindling supply as it prosecutes a war largely fought with artillery, the officials said.

      The disclosure, first reported Friday by the Wall Street Journal, follows a public warning from Secretary of State Antony Blinken, who said last weekend that Beijing is seriously considering a provision of lethal aid. It comes, too, as Western nations grow increasingly concerned that Chinese involvement in the conflict could prove a significant setback for Ukraine and its backers.

      “China has the capacity to be a game-changer,” said a senior U.S. administration official.

      The Chinese Embassy in Washington did not immediately respond to a request for comment. In response to Blinken’s warning, Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin said this week that China “will never accept the U.S. pointing fingers at Sino-Russian relations or even coercing us.” Urging the United States to “earnestly reflect on its own actions,” Wang said “it is the United States and not China that is endlessly shipping weapons to the war front.

      My take is that the combatants are in for a long slog. China will not allow Russia to lose.

    1092. Tgca says:


      More pro-Ukraine spin and propaganda by SDC.

      Of course China wants to be top dog over Russia just like Great Britain, France, and Germany want to be top dog over the US and would not be upset to benefit from American missteps.

      It’s called COMPETITION!

      However, the West is pushing a closer Russia-China alliance than otherwise would not exist and that is problematic for the West. Commies stick together!

      China is already the dominant leader in Asia and along with Russia will be dominating Africa. Segments of South America are also cozying up to Russia and China relationship for years.

      Speak about a new cold war. The West may not realize that they are instigating a stronger alliance with the Commies by trying to weaken Russia through NATO expansion.

      Europe is slowly dying off and within decades will be dominated by those emigrated there from Asia and Africa and that’s a problem. Look at the issues France has with changing demographics.

      Without serious course change, we could be looking at a China-Russia domination in Africa, Asia, Europe, and parts of South America that would not be in the best interest of the US.

      Both China and Russia are moving from a traditional Commie state to a capitalistic Commie state which is not good in my opinion but provides them the necessary economic lifeblood they need to grow and thrive just like we see among many of our anti-capitalistic socialist youth in the US who embrace socialism with a trace of capitalism but with their heart in socialism.

      Russia learned from the 1960s and 1970s that it could not survive the mass economic growth in the latter part of the 20th century. They were doomed economically and going to collapse in the 90s with or without the Reagan and Thatcher alliance. It was inevitable!

      China learned from Russia’s mistake and will most likely surpass the US as the leading superpower within a decade or two if we keep on our current path.

    1093. Bitterlaw says:

      Tina defines anybody who opposes Russian invasions as a warmonger. The only nation trying to escalate the conflict is Russia.

      Right now, I am annoyed that Trump opposes tanks to Ukraine for its defense. His “peace plan” has less detail than China’s so it is probably just as useless and serves Putin’s interests.

    1094. Tgca says:



      …and like it or not, China is correct in its assessment of optics. To date, the US is the one funneling weapons into the war, not China.

      The Chinese are very savvy and will make that stick in the media.

      Now of course, the other view is without those US weapons, Ukraine would lose immediately. So people will have to decide if they support a continued long-lasting war with potential escalations or the defeat of Ukraine.

      My suspicion, as we’ve already seen, many will see this as less important to them over time. i would bet if this war continues, this time next year, the support for Ukraine funding will be in a substantial deficit in polling.

      This will not be about right or wrong, it will be about economics and avoiding a larger scale war.

      Unfortunately for Ukraine, the Commies in Russia and China are good at waiting things out.

    1100. JeffP says:

      Trump averaged 34% of the primary vote on Super Tuesday in 2016. He may improve that to %40 in some states in 2024. But as I analyze the field compared to 2016 thus far, most of the other candidates will be out after Michigan and endorsing DeSantis before Super Tuesday. At this moment there is not a viable number three candidate like a Rubio in 2016 to pull a significant percentage, as well as, a Kasich who stayed in the race as a forth candidate.

      When I have more time I will post my analysis.

      No … Trump is in a much worse place in polling than 2016 in regards to state polling.

He is not running to win per se but definitely trying to impact GOP the agenda.

    1103. TGCA says:

      Everyone here supports assisting Ukraine and wanting Russia out of Ukraine.

      However, the vast majority of Americans do NOT support Ukraine at ANY cost as the Zelenskyy sycophants here do.

      Russia in itself, has NOT been a security threat to the US or its interests for decades but that could change if we push them into an expanded war.

      Radical terrorism is much more of a threat to the US than the Russians.

      …and just to remind all, during the Cold War with Russia, the US experienced it’s greatest economic growth ever and cemented its super power status while Russia sank into oblivion from decades communism, being surpassed in all areas of growth and superiority.

      1136 Jeffie

      Your analysis is worthless! Have you ever been right?

      DeSanctimonius is going down in the latest polls the last 2 months and if and when he debates Trump, he will look like a minor league player in comparing accomplishments. He’s gonna try to compare what he did in Floreedah against the most successful GOP president since Reagan – REALLY?

      …and running on his personality is not gonna win him points either since he is as thin-skinned and combative as Trump, and gated by the MSM and leftists as much as Trump so watch as that seeps into moderates and Indys.

      You still can’t name his accomplishments that benefitted everyday folk in Floreedah that would translate to a national electorate. I live in Floreedah. Tell me how my life has improved under him. I see no improvement in my life since Scott, who made a huge difference in his tenure.

      What are DeSanctimonius’ policies that resulted in economic prosperity – he inherited an EXCELLENT economy from Scott so he can’t run on he created that.

      Over 30 states have budget surpluses with states like TX and AK surpassing per capita surpluses of Floreedah so he can’t run on that.

      No foreign policy experience and his military experience is comparable to Mayor Butt as an administrative attaché for one year abroad so he can’t run on that.

      Trump increased minorities and Dems into the party so DeSanctimonius can’t run on that.

      Don’t give us the Covid crap either please as he’s trying to rewrite history. There are numerous videos and releases from him showing he advocated for locking down the state and deferring to the CDC and Dr. Fow-chee, including threatening to shut down businesses for non-compliance, and him hilariously struggling with putting a face mask on that dangled from his face. Wait until these are detailed in delates against him and he has to explain his lying about it now, especially when other candidates will all pile on him for lying. Watch when he starts hemming and hawing overt it.

      If he plans to run on wokeness alone, he will lose because Floreedah is not representative of the US. I would say big pockets of Floreedah are on par with AL and MS and still behind the rest of the nation in race relations. He’s running on an anti-minority platform that works in Floreedah but will not work in the midwest or northeast.

      I predict there will be anti-AA and anti-Latino coalitions against DeSanctimonius for race bating. Most US Latinos are not like Cubans in Floreedah.

      Tell me how he will win MI, WI, or PA that have moved further left in 2022. Without a combination of those, he CANT win the GE, no GOP candidate will. Only Trump won those states, arguably twice and many of his supporters there will not vote for DeSanctimonius, as demonstrated in a poll the other day that showed DeSanctimonius is not the 2nd choice of like 55% of Trump voters in the primary.

    1117. Paul says:

      Phil’s thoughts and prayers are nice.

    1118. Tgca says:


      Any GOP candidate running against Trump, an ex-president in a primary will have to lessen or disavow Trump’s record of accomplishments they previously supported and argue why they are a better choice than the most accomplished GOP president since Reagan.

      I see no expected GOP candidate that can do that effectively. Trump’s accomplishments had real potentially long-lasting value to the US. How can any of these other candidates compare to that?

      They gonna run on ‘trust me, I can do better.” Good luck having GOP primary voters believing in that.

      DeSanctimonius and Haley in particular have a challenge because they both sucked up to Trump Big Time while he was president. Walking it back now makes them look disingenuous and like opportunists, not to mention Trump will cut them down and mock their accomplishments in comparison.

      Swammy will look small and inconsequential next to Trump. What has he accomplished that could convince people he should be taken seriously? Sorry! Haley already has the minority box checked so he won’t gain favor from that. Besides, he’s not even 10 years out of schools vying for most high profile job in the world. You think voters gonna trust him on that?

      I do not see a pathway for Trump winning without a third candidate in the primary taking votes away from DeSantis on or after Super Tuesday. What #3 candidate is going to win a state in IA, NH, NV, SC, MI? I don’t see it happening. Adding Michigan before Super Tuesday will end a few campaigns. Trump will not reach 50% in any primary.

      I am open.,.Convince me other wise…no straw man arguments.

      The “Trump Supporters” not voting for DeSantis is extremely over rated. I don’t think we are going to see a never DeSantis movement this cycle.

    1131. Paul says:

      So, Tina, spending 1,000 billion each year on a strong defense is fine. Spending less than a 100 billion of that total where it is making a real difference is a waste.

    1132. Tina says:

      Just insane..


      LOL. The white house says there is “no indication” of misused Ukraine funds because literally none of it has been audited.

    1133. Tgca says:


      SDC does the same on Russia continuously. He posts every pro-Zelenskyy article he can find and tries to excuse critical articles as biased or in his “made up” view as “debunked.”

      A number of people here have called him out on his Zelenskyy sychophancy.

      You agree?

      If we’re gonna call out one perceived extreme view, then let’s call out the opposite extreme view as well.

    1134. Phil says:

      US aid run out?

      Don’t worry, bitter. It will never run out. It’s perpetual……and as long as our printing presses don’t break down, the stream of money will never end. A bunch of inflation as we continue to print money out of thin air, but hey, the border has to be protected – the Ukrainian borders that it.

    1135. Bitterlaw says:

      Phil – You already admitted you don’t care how much destruction is visited upon Ukraine. You support the right of Ukraine to defend itself BUT oppose the aid needed to do that. That is cold.

    1137. Bitterlaw says:

      Tina doesn’t care how many Ukrainians are murdered, either.

    1138. Tgca says:



      You can have an indication of misuse or fraud WITHOUT completing an audit. Often, the reason for an audit in the 1st place is an INDICATION of violations, misuse, or fraud.

      I’ve been involved in over 100 audits/reviews over the years from standard financial ones with filings to the SEC and other gubbermint agencies to operational and internal audits. A number of these resulted because of indications of control violation or reconciliation issues regarding misuse, violations, and fraud. I can tell you some funny insane stories about fraud we caught and how people tried to disguise them too, and how some led to prosecution or involving law enforcement. CPAs and financial professionals deal with all types of audits frequently. We constantly look for ways to ensure adequate controls are in place to detect abuse, misuse, and fraud.

      I think there is more than enough indication to warrant auditing Ukraine weapons distribution and financial support, especially given Ukraine has been recognized for decades, by our own State Department and CIA, for being the most corrupt country in Europe besides Russia.

      Let’s not be STOOPID with these absurd WH talking points.

    1139. Phil says:

      I’m all for aide for Ukraine, bitter. European aide. It’s their back yard, not ours. In case you haven’t noticed, we have a few minor problems of our own. Just a few. Of course, worthless Mitch says Ukraine is supposed to be our #1 priority. Sorry, Mitch. If you really believe that drivel you couldn’t be more out of touch.

    1140. Tgca says:


      BS! Typical STOOPID conclusions.

      Is that like Zelenskyy sycophants here do not care:

      … how many Uyghurs are abused, killed, and enslaved in concentration camps?

      …how hundreds of thousands of Iraqis ultimately died unnecessarily because of a false pretense to an ILLEGAL invasion in Iraq to try and democratize the Middle East?

      …how many people in African and Asian countries are routinely beatened, maimed, abused, enslaved, sex trafficked, raped, and murdered in numbers far greater than the casualties in Ukraine?

      How come you guys get a pass for indifference on vile savagery by dictators and Tina doesn’t?

    1141. Tina says:

      We are generous to a point.

      Opinion: American support for arming Ukraine is beginning to wane. Politicians wrapped up in Ukrainian nationalism may want to keep that in mind.

      But we have a lot of problems here.

      Is our defense stronger after two decades of failed wars in Iraq/Afghanistan and a war in Ukraine that has nothing to do w/ our national interest?

      Or is our defense stronger when our political leaders don’t incompetently start and lose multiple wars that aren’t in our interest?

      Trump is not aging gracefully:

      “Former President Trump has reportedly blasted the New York Post, one of the country’s leading right of center tabloid newspapers, for publishing a comprehensive profile of potential 2024 White House contender Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) over the weekend.

      The story, which includes photographs of the governor fishing and playing baseball as a youngster and a title repeating a popular DeSantis talking point, prompted an angry social media tirade from the former president.

      “In writer Salena Zito’s Fake News “puff piece” about DeSantis, which supposedly appeared in the dying New York Post, which is way down in readership just like FoxNews is way down in Ratings, why doesn’t she mention that he wants to cut Social Security & Medicare, loves losers like Jeb Bush, Paul Ryan, and Karl Rove, and it getting CLOBBERED in the polls by me. DeSantis is a RINO who is trying to hide his past. I don’t read the New York Post anymore. It has become Fake News, just like Fox & WSJ!” Trump wrote in a post on his Truth Social platform.”

    1147. Phil says:

      Endless wars. Yeah, that will make America stronger. Endless bleeding of our resources and wealth. China loves it.

    1148. Phil says:

      DeSantis is no RINO. Trump must have him mixed up with Nikki.

      A Fox News poll on Ukraine released on February 2nd.

      “Just over half of American voters think Ukraine is winning the war against Russia and nearly two-thirds want to keep helping them in their fight, according to a new Fox News survey.

      Sixty-four percent favor the U.S. continuing to provide weapons to Ukraine and 63% support ongoing financial aid. Those numbers are up a touch compared to six months ago, when approval was 61% for weapons and 59% for money.

      Majorities of Democrats, Republicans, and independents want to help Ukraine in both ways, although to varying degrees.

      About 8 in 10 Democrats back continuing financial (79%) and weapon support (79%). Fewer Republicans and independents feel that way, as just over half favor sending additional funding (51% and 55% respectively) and weapons (55% and 56%).

      (The responses were similar to recent Gallup poll)

      A Fox News poll response released this week asks “what the timeframe should be for U.S. support in Ukraine: 50% think it should continue until Ukraine wins, while 46% think it should be time limited.”

      UK, French, & German officials are reportedly preparing a NATO-Ukraine pact that falls far short of the protections Ukraine would receive from NATO membership & could reflect a desire to press Ukraine to accept a negotiated settlement on unfavorable terms.

      UK, French, and German officials are reportedly preparing a NATO-Ukraine pact that falls far short of the protections Ukraine would receive from NATO membership and appears to reflect a desire to press Ukraine to accept a negotiated settlement on unfavorable terms.[1] The Wall Street Journal reported that the exact provisions of the pact are undecided, but the officials indicated that the pact will provide advanced military equipment, arms, and ammunition to Ukraine, but not Article V protection or a commitment to station NATO forces in Ukraine—falling short of Ukraine’s aspirations for full NATO membership. The officials stated that the pact aims to provision Ukraine so that Ukrainian forces can conduct a counteroffensive that brings Russia to the negotiating table and deter any future Russian aggression. The Wall Street Journal noted that these officials expressed reservations about the West’s ability to sustain a prolonged war effort, the high casualty count that Ukraine would sustain in such a prolonged war, and Ukrainian forces’ ability to completely recapture long-occupied territories like Crimea, however. The Wall Street Journal contrasted these officials’ private reservations with US President Joe Biden’s public statements of support—which did not mention peace negotiations—and with Central and Eastern European leaders’ concerns that premature peace negotiations would encourage further Russian aggression. Russian President Vladimir Putin has given no indication that he is willing to compromise on his stated maximalist goals, which include Ukraine’s “neutrality” and demilitarization—as well as de facto regime change in Kyiv, as ISW has consistently reported.[2]

    1153. Bitterlaw says:

      Phil thinks the US has no strategic interests in Europe. Unbelievable.

      JeffP refuses to accept that this war started with Russia’s invasion. Ukraine did not invade Russia. I’m sure he will justify the Russian invasion in 3…2…1…

    1154. Bitterlaw says:

      Seriously, Tina. Is there anything good to report? Ever?

    1155. Paul says:

      JeffP: Many of us have followed Ukraine for about 20 years. We know that this didn’t begin last year. It began with Russia pushing it’s way in Ukraine and corrupt elections of Russian puppets in 2004 and 2010. It continued with Russia’ invasion in 2014 of Crimea and Donbass region.

      Mariupol is Russian territory since the vote in the summer that annexed all that land to the Russian gubberment. So they are shooting missiles into Russia.

    1158. Phil says:

      Phil thinks the US has no strategic interests in Europe.

      Of course we do. That’s why we are a member of NATO in case our NATO European allies are attacked. If so, we will defend that interest. Is there some imminent military Russian threat to our European NATO allies that I’m missing. Is there some Russian buildup on the Polish or Finish border that I haven’t heard about? Has Russia over the last year demonstrated even a potential to invade Poland or any other European country without getting their ass handed to them?

      Nope. Let the Europeans provide the bulk of military aide. It’s their back yard. We have enough on our plate.

    1159. Phil says:

      Oh, and while we’re on the subject of Ukraine, Ukraine can subsidize their own pension system……not the American tax payer.

    1160. Bitterlaw says:

      Phil wants Russian military forces to get hundreds of miles closer to Poland by seizing Ukrainian territory but sees no threat.

      If Russia did attack NATO in Europe, he would say it is Europe’s problem and not ours. The “ not one dead American for Warsaw” posts would be immediate.

    1161. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      Speaking of Mariupol, there is some speculation it might be the target of the next surprise Ukrainian offensive push. The Ukrainians may aim to cut Crimea off from Donbass. The Russians appear to be really worn down. There is no excuse for the failure of the Russians to take Donbass towns they have been besieging for several months. With NATO tanks and other weaponry about to be delivered to Ukraine, momentum may shift to the Ukrainians.

      I could see a peace agreement conceding a Crimea and the part of Donbass they already occupy to Russia. Ukraine in return preserves it’s independence and can affiliate with NATO.

      The Ukraine invasion has been a catastrophic disaster for Russia. Doubt Putin reminds in power very long whatever happens. By accident he may walk out of a window, and splatter on the ground below. Seems to happen a lot in Russia now.

    1162. Phil says:

      Nope. Come on, bitter. I would say no such thing. By treaty we are committed to defending European NATO countries. Article V. Ukraine is not a NATO member. Poland is. Apples and oranges…but you know that. You’re just being silly.

      What’s even more silly is even any discussion of a Russian invasion of Poland. come on. Knock it off. NATO air power would grind Russian tank columns into dust within a matter of days – probably hours. You think Putin doesn’t know that? Hell, you yourself know that….thus there will be no Russian invasion of Poland, Czechoslovakia or any other European NATO nation. Just stop with that nonsense.

    1163. Phil says:

      The Ukraine invasion has been a catastrophic disaster for Russia. San Diego is absolutely right. It’s been an utter debacle for Putin. 200K dead and wounded Russians, thousands of lost tanks and armored vehicles, millions of rounds of spent ammunition. What’s left of the Russian military couldn’t whip their way out of a wet paper bag…and certainly aren’t a threat to go up against any NATO opposition. It would be a turkey shoot. No need to pour another 100 billion American dollars into Ukraine. We’ve done enough. If the Europeans want to throw in billions more let them have at it. (They won’t by the way. As usual, they are fine with sitting back and letting us do it of course). The US has no national security interest that would be worth financing some perpetual war in Ukraine costing tens of billions more.

      We need to keep our powder dry. We’ll need it against China – An actual real military threat.

    1164. Bitterlaw says:

      Finland and Sweden are abandoning decades of not wanting to join NATO because they know Russia a threat to European peace and stability. But you know that.

      You will be just as big a pussy if there was a military crisis with China as you are now. The excuses will flow. Not one dead American for Taiwan! Let Taiwan,South Korea and Japan handle it! Same playbook for you, Phil.

      That said, I hope your wife and you are at peace at this time.

    1166. Tgca says:


      I agree.

      DeSanctimonius may not be a RINO by nature but he will be owned by the global elite that will push RINO issues and he will govern as they desire to keep funded. Without their funding, he can’t win and they despise Trump because Trump refuses to be owned by them.

      Its why he has pretty much stayed silent on J6 prisoners too and IGNORED pleas from family with members being targeted by DOJ.

      I have come to the conclusion DeSanctimonius is a bigoted fraud stoking bigotry just like Pat Buchanan did in the 80s and 90s, and which was popular with a large segment of the GOP.

      Notice that nearly every one of DeSanctimonius’ issues are about his obsession with minorities are hurting Floreedah, discussing black history in schools, going after trannies and gays, and now seeking medical records of LGBT college students in public universities.

      …and this behavior goes back to his racist comments towards Gillum in 2018 about “monkeying” around, as if anyone in this day and age doesn’t know what that meant.

      I think he will set back the GOP at the national level just like Pat Buchanan did. He is weaponizing gubbermint just like Newsom and Hochul, he is no different than them.

      Floreedah is not representative of the US. There is still a good deal of segregation and racism in Floreedah and DeSanctimonius is purposely tapping into those fears and greatly exaggerating threats knowing that will energize a segment of the population towards him, just like Pat Buchanan did.

      Why else his obsession with these issues constantly. It’s all he talks about. Deporting minorities, black history, trannies, and gays.

    1167. Tgca says:

      The few Zelenskyy sycophants here make the same arguments to instill fear with no real basis for it. They want war because it’s profitable and US service personnel are simply collateral damage, hence, the reason they will NEVER admit GWB ILLEGALLY invaded a sovereign country on a false premise just as Pootin did. I see no difference than the US invading Iraq and Pootin invading Ukraine. Both manufactured lies to support an invasion they could not otherwise get support for.

      Remember, they believed in the same crap with Iraq, that it somehow posed a threat to the US.

      Total nonsense!

      Yet they’re silent on atrocities on a larger scale going on daily in Africa, Asia, and China that surpass casualties in Ukraine.

      You never hear a peep out of them about China trying to expand its influence by deception and force.

      These Zelenskyy fanatics are aligned with Hollywood, the likes of Sean Penn.

      No. Putin is the invader “who wants war”.

      The best way to stop the war if for Russia to get out of Ukraine.

      And those who support Ukraine want that to happen.

      Tgca is the Putin stooge who wants war and admires the guy who started it.

      The Putin Admiration Society now pretends “warmongers” are those who want to defend Ukraine against Russian aggression.

      Russian aggression is not “warmongering”.

    1172. jason says:

      It’s been an utter debacle for Putin. 200K dead and wounded Russians, thousands of lost tanks and armored vehicles, millions of rounds of spent ammunition. ”

      And Phil wants to everything he can to stop this from continuing to happen.

      So he wants Ukraine to surrender to keep Russian losses down.

    1173. jason says:

      Phil supported arms to Ukraine until he saw that they were working against the Russians.

      Can’t have that.

      Phil keeps talking about how badly the Russians are doing without acknowledging that foreign military aid is responsible for it.

      The epitome of intellectual dishonesty

    1174. jason says:

      The HHR Putin Admiration Society should come clean.

      Their ONLY true objection to aid to Ukraine is that it is keeping Russia from winning.

      They just hate the idea that our aid to Ukraine has kept Putin from annexing Ukraine.

      The truth will set you free.

    1175. jason says:

      . I see no difference than the US invading Iraq and Pootin invading Ukraine.”

      Huh, no. The difference is HUGE.

      Here are the things Ukraine DID NOT DO.

      1) Start a war with Iran that killed a million people
      2) Use WMD against Iran
      3) Use WMD against its own people
      4) Kill at least 300,000 of its own citizens during a multidecade reign of torture and terror against any opponents of the regime
      5) Invade the sovereign country of Kuwait, killing tens of thousands, and starting another major war in the Middle East.
      6) Lob SCUD missiles into populated areas of Israel and Saudi Arabia for the express intention of killing civilians.
      7) Set fire to 700 oilfields in Kuwait causing the biggest ecological disaster in history
      8) Finance terrorism in Israel by giving money to the families of suicide bombers.
      9) Failing to cooperate with UN Inspectors on WMD so Saddam could continue to threaten his neigbors with it.
      10) Diverting billions of dollars from the Food for Oil Program which was supposed to go to Iraqui citizens but instead went to buy arms, build palaces, and enrich Saddam’s family and friends to cement his power.

      There is more, but should be enough to differentiate between the entirely LEGAL invasion of Iraq and the invasion of Ukraine.

    1176. jason says:

      For those who don’t think Putin wants to recreate the Soviet Union:

      “They [the West] have one goal: to disband the former Soviet Union and its fundamental part – the Russian Federation,” the Russian leader told Rossiya 1 state television in an interview recorded on Wednesday but released on Sunday.”

      He obviously sees defense of Ukraine as an effort to “disband the former Soviet Union”.

      The Soviet Union WAS disbanded. But Putin wants it back.

      It was never about the Donbas.

    1177. Tgca says:


      Funny coming from someone who sees no problem with the enslaving, raping and murdering of children and women in Africa and Asia. I guess that means Bitter must share common views with these child and women abusers since he’s not in support of any action against them.

      Bitter, the tough guy, who walks the streets in the bad part of Philly from his parking lot to his office with a suitcase full of Woka-Cola daily would CLAIM he would defend his little white adolescent friends in Radnor with his life from such atrocities but those little black and yellow girls in Africa and Asia…nah…they don’t matter.

      I already made the point you are intellectually dishonest, too cowardly to say it outright.

      By denying the means of Ukraine to defend itself, you are supporting Ukraine’s surrender. The only thing preventing Ukraine from being annexed is the aid they are receiving.

      Today a few of my neighbors were sitting outside their townhomes on the lake on this bee-you-tee-ful day discussing politics. All GOPers now confirmed which I suspected from previous comments I overheard because they’re out there daily hanging out chatting up a storm, usually in early evenings after dinner time.

      They were going on how the timing is not right for DeSanctimonius to run and he should wait. They think he will lose to Trump in primary and though they love DeSanctimonius, they will support Trump simply because Trump’s got more experience and business sense and they felt that’s what’s needed now to get the country back on track after how disastrous Biden has been. They believe the country needs more business leaders and less career politicians.

      The funniest part is when one noted DeSanctimonius is a mini-Trump, aggressive and in your face but we don’t need to force people to choose between two of them in the primary and have them fighting one another.

      I could not help wishing Gordy was there so I could watch him faint. These people would not be allowed in his gated community.

      That’s all you got, right.

      The truth will set you free.

      How many Putin posters do you have in your isolationist bunker?

    1192. Tina says:

      Rds may not even be able to field.

      Faux has a huge investment in him with the book.

      Relying on Twitter idiots to push anti vax and white wash your lockdown record may be the downfall of any presidential campaign.

    1193. jason says:

      Funny coming from someone who sees no problem with the enslaving, raping and murdering of children and women in Africa and Asia.”

      Ok Bitter, this is worth something.

      But it is discounted because it is from someone who actually IS ok with Putin exiling, displacing, raping, torturing and murdering millions of people in Ukraine.

    1194. Phil says:

      Overall, 77%, favor requiring mental competency tests for politicians over age 75.”


      Tgca hardest hit.

    1196. jason says:

      So “You need to feel my pain Haley” won’t lose votes over that comment.

      Of course, I wouldn’t vote for her even if she was running against AOC.

    1197. jason says:

      “Among Republican primary voters, men, women, those under and over age 45, and those without a college degree all put Trump first and DeSantis second. The Florida governor is ahead among those with a college degree and those who think Biden was legitimately elected, and the two are within a point or so among suburban voters and those with higher incomes.”

      More evidence that the TDS morons are hurting the Golden Calf’s chances by casting him as the anti-Trump and disparaging the working class Trump supporters.

      Trying to cast the Golden Calf as the candidate of the “educated elites” instead of someone who appeals to the working class is one of the stupidest tactics I have ever seen in politics.

      The TDS morons are going to get their civil war. But it won’t help the Golden Calf.

    1198. Tgca says:


      DeSanctimonius goes down more in polls the more exposure he gets.

      Told you so!

      He is trying to appeal to a very active right-winged group of voters hoping he can get the nomination.

      He talks about nothing but minorities ruining Floreedah and need to be deported, black history is not important in schools, banning books, prosecuting drag queens and trannies, LGBT is sexualizing kids, public universities needing to disclose behavioral health and medical records of LGBT students.

      This is not a winning ticket at the national level though it appeals to many in Floreedah.

      DeSanctimonius is todays Pat Buchanan! He’s extreme!

      He is no different than Newsom or Hochul weaponizing gubbermint against those he does not like.

      He is taking the GOP backwards. We saw Pete Wilson do this in Caleefawnyuh. The GOP is not welcomed among the Latino community there, the fastest growing community.

      Don’t think the GOP will have a forever lock on Floreedah either. Minority communities outside Cubans are growing in Floreedah more than the right-wingers and all it takes is a few hundred thousand votes to make the state competitive again for Dems.

    1199. Tgca says:

      This is why WOMEN SHOULD NOT BE BELIEVED in the US.

      Follow the evidence 1st. US women routinely lie about sexual assault and rape.

      This woman filed a case alleging sexual assault. She now claims she was pressured into filing the claims. She should be prosecuted for filing false claims.

      Sentencing for false claims of rape and sexual assault should carry the same sentencing time as the alleged crime itself.

    1200. Paul says:

      Tgca: There are bad things going on around the world. Uighurs in China is a big concern. The coup and human rights attacks in Myanmar is a terrible attack on democracy. And Russia’s attacks on human rights internally is also concerning.

      HOWEVER, ALL of those are INTERNAL. I think it is tricky and frequently a mistake to pick and choose sides INSIDE another nation.

      Russia invading Ukraine IS NOT INTERNAL. It is a clear violation of international boundaries.

    1201. Tgca says:


      So I guess what Germany did to the Jews in Germany was an internal thing too then. Got it!

    1202. Paul says:

      I said it is “tricky and frequently a mistake” to get involved in internal issues. Not, that we shouldn’t ever do so.

      It is just clearer when it is a straight-foward violation of international boundaries by one more powerful side—such as Russia in Ukraine and Iraq in Kuwait.

    1203. Tgca says:


      Korean and Vietnam wars were internal things too.

      As was Grenada.

      As was El Salvador.

      It appears the US has intervened in a number of internal conflicts to stop atrocities so why not China, Africa, Asia now?

    1204. Paul says:

      If China invaded Mongolia with plans to annex that nation, it would require an immediate response by the US. The Chinese treament of the Uighurs could be equally bad as the hypothetical treatment of Mongolia. However, the two situations would be treated differently.

    1205. Paul says:

      1244: I would personally say that many of those interventions were a mistake.

    1206. Tgca says:


      I think China enslaving over a million Uyghurs in concentration camps, abusing them, and killing them is a bit more serious or on the same par as what Ukraine is experiencing.

      I suspect if Ukrainians were not caucasians, certain posters here would not be supporting them so vigorously.

    1207. Paul says:

      The reality is this. If Germany had remained inside their boundaries and internally imprisoned and killed Jews, we would not have invaded Germany. We might boycott and end all trade with Germany (emphasis on might), but we would not have invaded.

    1208. Paul says:

      1248 Addendum: If Germany was in the process of annexing and preparing to commit genocide to a chunk of land occupied by a million Jews, we might be compelled to act to stop Germany.

      Similarly, we thought it was likely that Serbia desired to commit genocide in the area of Kosovo where over a million Muslims lived. We acted and prevented that. I think that was good. Others will argue it was bad.

    1209. Bitterlaw says:

      Tgca continues to advance the argument that the US cannot fight evil in the world unless it solves all evil in the world.

    1210. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      We already knew that Fauci and his associates were involved in a massive cover-up. Now the truth is coming out. Let’s not it was Fauci who provided U. S. funds to the Wuhan lab for gain of function research.

      “WASHINGTON—The U.S. Energy Department has concluded that the Covid pandemic most likely arose from a laboratory leak, according to a classified intelligence report recently provided to the White House and key members of Congress.

      The shift by the Energy Department, which previously was undecided on how the virus emerged, is noted in an update to a 2021 document by Director of National Intelligence Avril Haines’s office”

    1211. Bitterlaw says:

      Bitter, can you earn points even if you wish the attack was true?

      I have suspended your points from Tgca pending investigation, He seems to just throw them at you. Shenanigans.

    1212. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      A recent British report on the state of Putin’s military. We have in effect cripple Russia’s military without having NATO troops on the ground:

      “97% of Russia’s army is now in Ukraine, the UK’s defense minister said.
      He said that despite this, Russia is yet to show much progress in its offensive.
      The figure means Russia doesn’t have many advanced troops it could send to Ukraine to turn the tide.
      Almost all of Russia’s army is already in Ukraine, the UK’s defense minister said, making it hard for Russia to have enough trained troops to help reverse its losses in the war.

      And they still cannot break out.

      The only additional troops left would be the new recruits who have shown that they cannot fight effectively.

      Most of their prisoners have been used as cannon fodder and are dead.

      Another report indicated 500,000–1,000,000 Russians have fled the country further depleting the conscription pool.”

    1213. Paul says:

      I’m glad that I don’t see any repeating of Russia’s talking points of Ukraine being a Nazi state here on the Hedgehog.

    1214. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      Appreciate the support King Charles has expressed for Ukraine:

      “King Charles visited the the Ukrainian military recruits at their training program in Wiltshire and met some of the instructors, including Australian soldiers.

      The monarch watched a short defensive training exercise and was accompanied by General Siriu Patrick Sanders, the UK’s Chief of General Staff.

      An estimated 10,000 Ukrainian recruits are expected to pass through the UK training facility.”

    1215. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      “Covid-19: Primary vaccination for general population no longer recommended by the French health authority
      ‘Almost all of the population not at risk of severe disease has already come into contact with the virus at least once,’ said the French National Authority for Health.”

      We will never experience this type of common sense logic given the U.S. COVID bureaucracy never wants to give up it’s funding stream.

    1216. jason says:

      Biting the hand that feeds you?

      “4 in 10 Americans say they’re worse off than when you were elected — only 16% said they’re better off. Why?”

      BIDEN: “You make the ne — I mean you interview for the news. Can you think of anything turn on the television and go, ‘God, that makes me feel good?'”

    1217. Teegeeceeaye says:

      Horrible escalation by these warmongers. This will not lead to Ukraine’s surrender so I am against it.

      “King Charles visited the the Ukrainian military recruits at their training program in Wiltshire and met some of the instructors, including Australian soldiers.

      The monarch watched a short defensive training exercise and was accompanied by General Siriu Patrick Sanders, the UK’s Chief of General Staff.

      An estimated 10,000 Ukrainian recruits are expected to pass through the UK training facility.”

    1218. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      Not all Republicans are in favor of appeasing Putin. There is a solid majority in the House of Democrats and Republicans in favor of providing military aid to Ukraine. It’s time for Ukraine to receive F-16 fighter jets:

      “The U.S. can send more advanced weapon systems for Ukraine, including longer-range missile systems or fighter jets, Michael McCaul, Chairperson of the U.S. House Foreign Affairs Committee, said in an interview with ABC News on Feb. 26

      McCaul, a Republican representative from the state of Texas, added that if such moves were approved by President Joe Biden, Congress “would take steps to move the process along.”

      “We can certainly write into our appropriations bills, prioritizing weapons systems. We intend to do that,” he said.

      According to McCaul, Ukraine can receive enough weapons to win the war with “pressure from Congress on both sides of the aisle,””

    1219. Tgca says:


      BS! Wishful thinking.

      We can provide all the weaponry we want to Ukraine but they will not win this war on the battlefield. Ain’t gonna happen!

      US gives Ukraine advanced weapons and then China provides Russia more advanced weaponry in exchange for energy.

      This conflict will NOT end anytime soon by providing either side with weapons. That only benefits weapon manufacturers.

      At some point, strong leadership needs to intervene to broker a ceasefire for a war that NEVER would have started had there been strong leadership instead of political speeches by NATO countries. Nothing else will end this war.

    1220. HolleeeewoodJadon says:

      Me and my friends in Hollywood are committed to Ukraine.

      We’re working on a new network series to bring the best of Ukraine television to the US, starring Zelenskyy and my good friend Sean Penn because mind as well make money while misleading Americans. In discussions with Harry and Megan too.

      Sean and I both agree American taxes need to be raised so we can pay for Ukraine pensions and Mrs. Zelenskyy new wardrobes.

      We can save Americans money too by diverting funds from securing the southern border to Ukraine. Securing Ukraine borders are more important than securing American borders.

    1221. Tgca says:


      Bitter keeps finding excuses why Africans and Asians don’t deserve the same intervention as Europeans to protect them from dictators who torture, rape, murder, enslave, and sex traffick them.

      He keeps dancing around the issue. He still won’t answer the question of whether we should isolate China or not for enslaving over a million Uyghurs in concentration camps.

      If Germany were to put Jews in concentration camps tomorrow, Bitter would be ready to go to war. Uyghurs in concentration camps in China? Who cares.

    1222. Bitterlaw says:

      Broker a cease fire with Russia in control of large areas of seized Ukrainian territory? That “solution” rewards Russia. Just admit it and defend it if you can.

    1223. Tgca says:

      1248 Paul

      I agree the US probably would have let the Jews die in Germany because of American anti-semitism at the time. Not sure Great Britain would have done the same but who knows.

      Remember, the US turned away nearly 1,000 Jews in 1939 and would not let their boat dock in the US. They sat off Miami shores while FDR and American politicians ignored their plight fully aware of their likely fate.

      After weeks sitting off the US mainland, the US Coastguard escorted them back to sea as they returned to Europe to ensure none would jump ship and land in Miami.

      They went back to Europe and a third of them died in concentration camps.

      That was the America of the GREATEST GENERATION. Times change.

    1224. jason says:

      I think I can follow Tgca the Putin lapdog’s logic.

      A million Uyghurs are oppressed in China. China commits human rights violations against minorities in China.

      Because of that, it is ok for Putin to invade Ukraine and slaughter its citizens.

      I think I get it.

    1225. jason says:

      Mrs. Zelenskyy new wardrobes”

      I think I can follow Tgca the Putin stooge’s logic.

      Because Mrs. Zelensky went on a shopping trip to spend her own money, it is ok for Putin to displace 10 million Ukrainians, bomb and shell its cities, destroy its infrastructure and kill, torture, rape and exile tens of thousands of innocent people.

      I think I get it.

    1226. JeffP says:

      Is anyone else hearing this. Vivek is over the target dropping cluster bombs on wokism and affirmative action in the Biden administration. Unashamedly bold he calls it out. Critically needed in this country and definitely in the GOP. Watch this short clip.

    1227. Tgca says:

      By the way, the US officially apologized fir its bigotry like 75 years later, as if it meant anything to the people that suffered like Hell in Nazi concentration camps and lost their lives. Just meaningless words excusing the hate be bigotry in the GREATEST GENERATION.

      Maybe 50 years from now Bitter’s kids will apologize for his indifference to the routine torture, rape, murder, slaughter, and sec trafficking of Africans and Asians.

    1228. Bitterlaw says:

      Zzzzzzzzz. The US can help Ukrainians by supplying weapons now. Where does the Badass clown want weapons delivered to the Uyghurs? His manufactured concern over their fate only goes back to when he turned against aiding Ukraine. His false and disingenuous position is to not help anybody unless we can help everybody.

      The Badass clown has made no proposal and called for no action against China despite lambasting me. His argument is as empty as Wes excusing Civil War slavery.
