After 8 years of arming and training Ukraine’s army and air force, spending billions of tax payer dollars, the United States no longer has a viable strategy to defeat the Russian forces and compel Vladimir Putin to accept a humiliating defeat. Yes, the U.S. and NATO are pouring a large amount of HIMARS, Army Tactical Missile Systems (aks ATACMS), tanks, vehicles and aircraft into the fight, but this is only prolonging the inevitable surrender of Ukraine. Worse, it is poisoning any chance of restoring normal relations with Russia.
Readers younger than fifty have little or no memory of the Cold War. During the 45 year period after World War II (1945-1990), the United States and the Soviet Union fought each other in proxy wars–Vietnam, Angola, Nicaragua and Afghanistan were major battlegrounds. Yet, despite the fighting and spying by each side in their respective efforts to subvert the other, the United States and the Soviet Union kept diplomatic channels open and succeeded in reaching critical nuclear weapons disarmament treaties. Both sides realized that a nuclear war would be a nightmare neither was likely to survive.
When the Soviet Union collapsed, the United States took a victory lap. But instead of promoting policies to help restore the Russian economy, western entrepreneurs, with the willing help of Russian oligarchs, succumbed to greed and tried to loot Russia of its critical oil, gas and mineral deposits. A number of American capitalists and politicians made money off of that. Russia was still a nuclear power, but western leaders calculated they could bully Moscow without fear of retribution.
Throughout the period from 1990 to February 24, 2022, there were still people in the Russian political leadership who believed that negotiations with the United States and Europe was a viable option. That is no longer the case. Whether the United States and Europe want to believe it, the Russian leaders and people now believe that the west poses an existential threat to them and they will do what is necessary to defend themselves and survive.
I am old enough to remember a time when the freedom of the press and freedom of speech set the United States apart as a special place. American culture and economic prowess was something that many in Russia and the rest of the world envied. But that was then.
When foreigners now consider the state of America they see something radically different. Freedom of the press and freedom of speech are now under regular, sustained attack directed at Christians and conservatives. I remember when the Soviets labeled dissidents as terrorists. Now, America’s own Department of Justice is doing the same to parents opposed to critical race theory and outraged over their daughters being asked to shower with males who claim they are female. Many U.S. citizens who entered the Capitol on January 6th at the invitation of U.S. Capitol Police, were arrested and incarcerated without charges being brought. A clear violation of the 6th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution:
In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the Assistance of Counsel for his defence.
Many of those arrested are being held without access to legal counsel for more than a year. That is not speedy. But the Biden Administration justifies this because it labels these citizens as “terrorists” and “insurrectionists.” In the aftermath of 9-11, the American public has been anesthetized to ignore the Constitution in order to punish terrorists.
American culture is now awash with filth. Child pornography, pedophilia and transgenderism is being touted as normal. Anyone who dares challenge these things as abnormal are tagged as racists and hatemongers. Comedians like Dave Chappelle are attacked physically and verbally for daring to ridicule a testosterone laden man who insists he is a woman that can get pregnant and have a menstrual cycle. Most people in the world, not just Russians, see this and can only conclude that the United States is in the grip of mass psychosis.
In the aftermath of the horrors of World War II, the United States eschewed exterminating its enemies–Germany and Japan–and helped rebuild those societies. Let me posit a hypothetical. Let’s suppose that Ukraine, through some miracle, defeats Russia and retakes all of the territory in Ukraine. Do you think that the Biden Administration or the people of the United States would be willing to treat a defeated Russia as it did Japan? I do not think so.
And that is the point. The Russians do not think so either. The previous perception of America as a potentially benevolent partner is dead. Kaput. When Russia secures its victory in Ukraine–regardless of how much time and bloodshed is required to achieve that end–it will be committed to building global relations that exclude the United States. The era of the United States as the supreme military and economic power in the world is over.
Joe Biden Has Nothing on His Public Schedule Again Today – Continues to Hide in Delaware Basement
Check out this picture of biden. He looks just like my grandfather before he had a stroke and passed away. They are hiding home because he is not well and looks incredibly weak. Weaker than he has been if that is possible.
He was never physically or mentally fit for the office he was installed in. And he has only gotten worse. Remember, they only let us see him on his “good days”. He has dementia and his health is failing and everyone knows it. He has had at least four falls that we know of in less than a year. When someone his age starts down that path it usually means the Grim Reaper is creeping up. If this demented basement dummy undergoes impeachment hearings (which he should) like PT did, they will either have to publicly admit his ill health to play the sympathy card or he will restart the zero year curse that existed from William Henry Harrison in 1840 to JFK in 1960 because he won’t be able to take it.
Biden is doing a good job in difficult times; as much is accomplished to better our nation’s future, deficits continue to decline. Trump ran debt up faster than any president in modern US history—but hey, the wealthiest did GREAT, and that’s really all that matters.
Putin’s invasion of Ukraine has turned into a Russian military disaster. Putin can’t take significant Ukrainian territory, let alone hold it. Conservative estimates place Russian casualties at 60,000 with at least 15,000 of those KIA. The high-end estimate is 43,000 Russians KIA.
Biden is doing a horrible job. He’s not even the President.
Sundowning, stuttering, and completely compromised by clinical senilty.
Trump ran debt up faster than any president in modern US history
Barack Obama ran up debt faster than any President, save this imposture Biden. The myth of Trump running up debt plays to the ignorant Democrat base that is sorely lacking in education.
Putin’s invasion of Ukraine, which Russia is winning, was carried out because America is weak, with puppet-Biden giving a green light for out enemies to carryout their plans.
Hell, Biden even begs our enemies for oil.
There are no amount of FBI Twitter bots or dumbfucks like greg that can write away the reality: America has a dictator, installed off the back of a released pandemic, rigged election, and false-flag.
America has also fractured into two nations: America (US), and the small group of zealots who drank the Woke Koolaid, choosing to go down with their ship rather than right it.
Stripping the FBI, and Federal Government of their now-illegal power is the first step.
Local, State, then the weak, small, and not-really-in-charge Federal Government.
This is how our Constitution works.
You are smokin some of hunters crack.
What are you arguing today asshole?
Allen Weisselberg pleads guilty to 15 felonies and tax fraud
(I’m arguing that everything having to do with Trump is a reflection of what he is, and a clear warning that he can’t be trusted.)
There is not a single metric that reflects biden doing a good job. He wishes he had half of President Trumps economic results and maybe his approval would be over 20%
That’s not your argument. That’s you creating false-crimes and false narratives against a political opponent you can’t beat.
By your logic, Putin’s latest political opponent, who’s now in jail, really is guity.
We know this isn’t the case, and what you are doing is standard for totalitarian regimes trying to crush democracy.
It’s fun watching you fools crumble.
A person couldn’t do a worse job if they tried. Idiot Biden is a waste of air, a moron, a corrupt crook, a tool and puppet of Xi, Obama and Soros. He is the most worthless excuse for a leader this country has EVER seen. The “difficult times” are all of his own doing and he is doing a disastrous job of dealing with his own failures.
Weisselberg broke the law, not Trump. Note that he didn’t do anything idiot Biden didn’t do when he tried to evade paying taxes on $500,000 (not to mention skipping taxes on all the influence peddling income yet to be located).
But I guess no one spoke?
Biden is making difficult times more difficult.
Look it’s a Biden rally. Just kidding, Biden couldn’t get this many people to show up if he tried. It’s just a group of young Democrats doing what they do.
Yeah, those are Democrats doing their Democrat thing: destroying and stealing what others have worked for.
Even if you actually call Biden “president” (and most Americans don’t), he’s the lowest rated, most failed, utterly incompetent buffoon ever allowed within 1000 feet of the Oval Office.
He’s an install for the WEF, who now own our country. Only oustering these traitors will get the nation back on track.
Trump remains the right person to do that, by the numbers, and by empirically-provable facts.
The 14 whistleblowers in the FBI show us there are cracks in our usurpers plans.
Sic Semper Tyrannis
It’s just like you to quote John Wilkes Booth, while imagining you support the Constitution and the rule of law.
On bidens best day and he has not had one of those since he dropped out of his first presidential campaign, President Trump is 1000 times the president biden thinks he is
It’s just like you to show your lack of education, pathetically not knowing the phrase “Sic Semper Tyrannis” is a bit older than Booth.
It’s also quite amusing you don’t understand that you Booth are the same, Booth calling Lincoln a tyrant, and you calling Trump one.
You must live in the same reality, one of traitorous idiocy.
It’s a Latin phrase that Boothe quoted, dumbass. It’s not original to Boothe. You think just because Boothe spoke it, it should forever be erased from human knowledge?
08/14/22 – The far right is calling for civil war after the FBI raid on Trump’s home. Experts say that fight wouldn’t look like the last one.
Expect someone to try to create a triggering event—possibly a false-flag assassination attempt, or a terrorist attack against one of their own symbols.
Media Outraged after Learning Steve Bannon Called Hillary a B*tch in Leaked Audio from 2020
The Left is committing treason against our nation. It’s violation the Constitution, and the Rule of Law.
Like the January 6th false flag, they are predictably trying to flip the script and claim the Right is somehow attacking them.
Yup. That’s exactly what you people are most likely to do. You still have innocent people jailed at the Capitol for nothing.
Such as what? You incessantly repeat that like a cult mantra, but never get specific because there’s nothing to get specific about.
Trump, on the other hand, incited a violent mob of Pizzagate/MAGA morons with endless lies and unevidenced bullshit, and then launched them at the nation’s Capitol for the explicit purpose of stopping a consitutional process—the lawful process that would remove him from office after he lost an election by a frickin’ landslide.
An attempted coup is about as unconstitutional as it gets, and that’s only the cherry topping Trump’s 4-year ice cream sundae of malfeasance, aided and abetted by GOP that has tossed its moral compass out through a porthole.
The idea that this guy should ever hold public office again is completely nuts. The legitimate question is whether he should be in prison, and for how long.
PS: “I know you are but what am I?” isn’t really a legitimate argument.
Many of your prominent Democrats, including Kamala, were advocating ongoing left wing violent terrorism and attacking political opponents all through 2020. If there is violence as a result of the illegal fascist invasion of Trump’s home, blame the raid and Obergruppenfuhrer Garland, not those who have had enough and can no longer allow the Democrats destroy our Constitution and country. What I suggest is that you and your Democrats stop trying to establish your beloved totalitarian police state and work more towards supporting and benefitting the American taxpayer.
No, he didn’t. Until we have an actual investigation and find out what roles Pelosi, Bowser and the FBI played in inciting the riot, we won’t know exactly who was behind it, but it has been established, clearly, that Trump had no part in it.
That’s right. That’s what the Democrats were doing for the four years of Trump’s administration. Hell, Democrats were pledging to impeach him before he even took the oath of office! Democrats are such incompetent failures, they don’t even consider winning a fair election; they’ve had to weaponize the IRS, DOJ and FBI to attack political opponents.
If Obergruppenfuhrer Garland’s raid on Trump was so legitimate, why don’t they release the affidavit? Redact the “informers” (yeah, right) and release the evidence. You know why they don’t? Because, like Russiagate, quid pro quo and insurrection, it’s TOTAL BULLSHIT. If they had actual evidence and just cause, they could release it and destroy the swell of support caused by this unconstitutional attack, but instead, if they were to release it and its transparent illegality is exposed, Trump’s support will grow even more.
Greg we are not calling for civil war, there are those that dont realize we have been at war for a while now(at least since they murdered JFK and most likely long before)Nazis embedded into our science, technology and intelligence agencies with their socialist nationalist poison.
Have you got any actual examples of that rhetoric? I never heard any.
You are a f**king liar.
Obama calls for widespread protests over reversal of Roe, no mention of “non-violent”.
Mad Maxine Watters incites violence against Trump cabinet members
Who is the fund to bail out “protesters” getting out of jail?
Kamala threatens ongoing violence
Democrats, who routinely accuse others of inciting violence, do it out of instinct
Democrats calling for violence
What REALLY trying to incite violence looks like
By the way, THIS is what “answering a question” looks like. I thought you could learn from it.
Those are examples of the alternate-reality right-wing propaganda outlets that separated you from reality to begin with.
How about actual word-for-word QUOTES promoting violence, instead of page after page of pin-headed drivel intended to convince an angry, gullible audience that they’ve actually heard one?
Reading that crap and believing you’ve heard calls for violence is like believing there’s credible evidence for Trump’s “massive election fraud” because you’ve been repeatedly told there credible evidence, when there’s never been a single bit of it that could clear even the low bar required for formal presentation in a courtroom. It doesn’t work with any audience or in any setting where critical thinking is the norm.
If given their way, these people will lead the nation to utter ruin. THEY’RE NOT CONSERVATIVES.
No, those are examples of Democrats inciting violence. It’s no mere coincidence that following those statements, violence ensues. When the left threatens the lives of Supreme Court Justices, Obergruppenfuhrer Garland does NOTHING. When the left bombs and burns pregnancy support centers, Garland does NOTHING. When ANTIFA attacks peaceful prayer groups in Seattle and Portland, Garland does NOTHING. The left endorses political violence and doesn’t want it to end.
How about an actual word for word QUOTE of Trump inciting violence? You got that in your Schiff-style “mountain of evidence”? For instance, when Kamala said that the “protests” will continue and they SHOULD continue, the “protests” she spoke of were violent attacks on police, police stations, federal courthouses, businesses and innocent citizens. All this as she was supporting the bail fund that got violent rioters right back on the streets to commit more violence (the organizers of that fund will not provide information on how many bailed out rioters went on to commit more violence). Democrat after Democrat denied ANTIFA even exists, also denying the violence. The DNC/FBI hasn’t even investigated ANTIFA and the vast, vast majority of those violent thugs get their charges dropped. That is DEMOCRATS aiding and abetting violence and encouraging MORE of it.
Democrats are the party of violence, of crime, of corruption, of totalitarianism, of America-hate, of illegal immigration, of taxes, of inflation, of war, of failure.
Those are examples of the alternate-reality right-wing propaganda outlets that separated you from reality to begin with.
That’s not a valid argument. If you have anything rational to counter those myriad points that LITERALLY give you the examples you asked for, then do it.
Otherwise, shut the f*ck up and accept you’re a dumb, irrational partisan jerkoff who can’t argue his way out of a paper bag.
Examples of Democrats calling for violence and eroding the rule of law are FACT. They’ve been provided. They are not opinions. They are public and empirical.
To say otherwise is what a regime supporting enemy of our country would say.
You are arguing with yourself. Nobody is arguing with you., asshole
08/18/22 – Ex-White House officials including 2 former chiefs of staff dispute Trump’s claim he declassified docs found at Mar-a-Lago: ‘Nothing approaching an order that foolish was ever given’
Ex-White House officials including 2 former chiefs of staff dispute Trump’s claim he declassified docs found at Mar-a-Lago: ‘Nothing approaching an order that foolish was ever given’
Uh huh. More “ex-staffers,” and “historians”, and whatever concocted “expert” they can invent because it plays with the non-college attending Democrats.
The Former Sec of State was allowed to burn classified materials, without justice, and a general admitted to HIGH TREASON and nothing happened.
Who gives a damn what “ex-staffers” say?
The GITMO prisoners got more rights and privileges than the January 6th political prisoners. Because they have constant media scrutiny, Republicans have to scrupulously abide by the Constitution but Democrats, protected by the liberal media in whatever they attempt to do, have no compunction to follow the law. Democrats are free to undercut the Constitution while Republicans are restricted in how they can respond.
Make no mistake, Putin launched a war of illegal conquest. He sized the situation up, weak, incompetent US “leadership” and a UN that worries more about exploiting the climate scam than doing it’s job, maintaining world peace, and decided now was the time. But, the war in Ukraine could never have happened without idiot Biden, through his STUPID energy policies here, enabling Putin. Putin may even secretly wish idiot Biden hadn’t provided him the opportunity to fund his war, but without idiot Biden’s help, Putin could never have initiated hostilities.
You mean, once again, people who weren’t even there and have no knowledge of anything that happened?
The entire fiasco is blowing up for the DOJ. The judge today pretty much said he is going to unseal the affidavit. Granted there will be redactions but it will be damning because it will mirror the FISA debacle on carter page and others.
Nobody was there to witness Trump’s miraculous Declassification of the Boxes because nothing that stupid ever happened—at least in front of witnesses. Nor is there any written record of such declassification, which there always should be when a Top Secret document has its classification removed.
THAT’S what insiders are saying.
Given that Trump didn’t read his daily security briefings while in office, it isn’t very likely that he read the content of the 20 boxes of “declassified” documents removed by the FBI from Mar-o-Lago before touching them with his Magic Fairy Wand—rendering the entire idea of declassification en masse not only ludicrous, but dangerous.
No, your SOURCES were not there, so therefore, their opinion is null and void.
Those links nail it. The left promotes violence but greg is told to not believe documented factual evidence when it confirms reality. I applaud your efforts, especially when you bitch slap greg. But, at the end of the day greg is only seeking the attention he lacks in his everyday personal life in addition to being a paid troll.
The left embraces political violence and terrorism. It’s all they have to influence minds and actions because their agenda is such a failure. When violence and intimidation doesn’t do the job, they fall back on election fraud.
Like their incessant accusations of racism, their new mantra of “you’re inciting violence” is dulled by their own inciting, promoting, approving and ignoring of left wing political violence which dwarfs any example of actual right wing violence, if you can find it at all. It’s possible Greg just accepts the exhortations for ongoing violence against Democrat opponents as normal business, because it is so pervasive.
More daily propaganda from the fascist tool who calls himself greg
Almost everyone agrees with the old saying that, ‘Those who do not learn history are doomed to repeat it.’
Which part of the American political spectrum is trying its best to expunge history from American education?
Academic history has almost fully surrendered to the worst excesses of leftism and identity politics, and the result is that the number of students majoring in history is plummeting.
For as many years as Howard Zinn’s The People’s history of the United States has been used as a schoolbook, we have been churning out students who are ignorant of our country’s past.
Now, the LEFT simply calls opposing views,”extremism, racist, sexist, etc.,” rather than engage in debates they would lose.
And add to this the LEFT’s recent penchant for redefining words they don’t like and you have an Orewllean 1984 “Newspeak” writ large in the real world.
This is just another way to avoid issues and debate and solutions that might work.
Greg is so immersed in all that false history/name-calling/redefining terms that he cannot even imagine the other side having valid points.
Link to LEFTY pols like Pelosi, joe, Maxine, ect, in videos saying they want violence and all he can do is “attack the messenger.”
When Jane Fonda was doing her part in North Vietnam the Left openly admitted that there were daily messages from Hanoi with talking points for them to use.
Today we see the media following talking points from the WEF so closely that you can put together compilations of talking heads saying the exact same thing all day, each day.
The LEFT’s war on the USA is more multipronged than a sea urchin.
They will never give up.
But they do “eat their own.”
Comrade Greggie, please furnish us with the names of the witnesses to the “declassification” of the boxes containing the 33 MILLION documents that Obama had shipped to Chicago, where he doesn’t even live.
We’ll be waiting.
But you’ll be running from answering that like the cowardly rabbit you are.
Are you sure it wasn’t actually 33 Billion?
Obama held 30 million documents, many classified
Trump’s point is that they are attacking him for nothing. A double-standard, if you will.
Pea-brained troll twits like Michael at the Bureau and greg at the WEF sweep in to offer their usual word-parsing and such, but the fact remains:
The US Federal Government is corrupted and compromised to the point that it needs to be dissolved and replaced with representatives not bought by China, Russia, or any corporations.
The totalitarian crack-down is coming, and as Democrats start and continue with their Civil War, their desperate media outlets simply invert truth and say it’s the rest of us causing it, when we’re just telling them “no.”
Obama took classified docs. So did every president. They made this scandal up because they can’t beat Trump in a fair and free election.
Hell, they killed a few million people world-wide with released-Covid just to stop Trump…and they STILL had to rig an election and hold the J6th false flag
We’ll see how this Mao-style takeover goes, when the population is armed to the teeth.
Tyranny. Biden is not a president, and our Federal Government no longer has Constitutional Authority to do anything.
Interesting, though. I rattled my zipper and “So what if I suck c*ck?” michael showed up like he was paid to do so, or something.
Obama DID take classified doc, regardless of what the dismissible, Democrat-owned AP would craft with their forked tongues.
It’s not a crime for Obama, and it’s not a crime Trump.
What a bunch of losers.
Hunter’s laptop, which the left conspired to claim was “Russian disinformation”, would have cost them 17% of idiot Biden’s votes and they didn’t have the election fraud capacity to overcome that. Now, the laptop information is accepted as real, just in case the left has to use it to sacrifice idiot Biden. The entire Democrat party and all its lemming followers sits upon a foundation of lies and corruption.
Your obfuscation only proves that you are an idiot that has no mind of his own and can only spew the blathering bullshit you are told to spew.
Thank you for confirming that for us all once again.
You bought into the Trump/Russia collusion narrative for 2 years. From the “news” sources you trust. Now they are trying it again with documents. Paperwork. You of course will believe it’s the crime of the century. Wonder what Clinton or Obama squirreled away?
You have no room to question anyone else who uses different sources than you. Yours failed and you got played.
Poor Michael, he believes the trash the AP wants him to believe. Perhaps he should have done a little research on his own part.
Say Michael, do you know the difference between “are” and “will be?” Are you aware that there is not access to even one “digitized” document from the Obama administration yet? Of course, because of …………COVID.
Did you bother to read the article you linked? The Hoffman Estates facility has artifacts and material destined for the The Barack Obama Presidential Library–NOT classified government documents.
The articles confirm Obama took 30 million documents, kept them and has not returned them.
Still waiting for that direct quote from Trump specifically calling for violence. Did you misplace it?
You’re parsing words.
Obama has classified docs.
All Presidents do.
Cope more. Your latest farce is going where they all go: nowhere.
I’m so old Ike was President all 4 years i was in High School FDR made the “cold War”; had he gone up lthe Balkans as Whinny wanted Russia would never have had all the “Satelites”! Whiney let us know when I was young; inFulton
“From Stettin in the Baltic to Trieste in the Adriatic an iron curtain has descended across the continent. Behind that line lie all the capitals of central and eastern Europe. Warsaw, Berlin, Prague, Vienna, Budapest, Belgrade, Bucharest, and Sofia, all these famous cities and the populations around them lie in what I must call the Soviet sphere, and all are subject, in one form or another, not only to Soviet influence but to a very high and in some cases increasing measure of control from Moscow.1”
I am saying we started pour slow suicide at Yalta 1945,

Could be more, seems his minions had access to the database that tracks and stores everything.
The beyond ugly Mad Max said this on television openly.
They used it and abused it, NSA database.
Seems you get in more trouble exposing criminal activity than actually doing the crime…ask Assange.
Seth Rich cant be reached for comment.
Hell, Anthony Weenie-flasher and all of Hillary’s aids had her classified emails (I assume even the weddings, funerals and yoga emails) on all their laptops. Democrats care about securing classified national information like they care about citizens struggling with the results of their punitive economic policies: ZERO. The only secrets that are sacred to them is the evidence of their own corruption.
I do imagine that the emails generated by funerals Hillary herself has caused might alone be 33,000.
Those who keep talking about civil war are the ones that want one.
And when it comes to suing crime as a tool, That’s your territory too.
