Economy got you down? Are people chanting F-bombs at you? Do polls show only 21.8% of your countrymen would re-elect you despite widespread support two years ago?
Well, bub, have I got good news for you. All you need is a war. The Russo-Ukraine War has been very, very good to Putin, Zelensky and CNN.
Just last July, Zelensky was on the ropes. He was doing worse than Biden at the time.
EU Observer reported, “President Volodymyr Zelensky has begun the third year of his presidency mired in mid-term unpopularity with a poll published last month showing that only 21.8% of Ukrainians would vote to re-elect him.
“More than half would prefer him not even to run for a second term.
“It’s a steep decline from the 73% support that swept him to power so dramatically two years ago and a measure of badly voters think he has done to deliver on his promise of change.”
But the invasion of his country and the destruction if city after city have made him a rock star. On Sunday night he appeared at the Grammys via a video. All hail the Conquered Hero. Anti-military lefties are suddenly gung-ho about war — as long as they do not have to fight it.
We will see how they feel about it next year.
Then there is Putin. His popularity hit 83%.
That’s pretty good for a fellow who invaded a country and then saw his army chewed up by a smaller force. His economy also is in tatters, although to be fair his 20 years of rule have kept his country down.
But the economic sanctions that Biden and company imposed on Russia provide a good excuse for empty store shelves and the like. Never mind that the sanctions hurt the NATOsphere harder than it hit Russia. The sanctions are the dog that ate Putin’s homework.
As for Biden, he is blaming Bidenflation on Putin. So far the public is not buying it. What matters is how the public feels a month before the election.
War of course helps defense contractors, which helps the generals because they all want to cash in as consultants when they retire.
The war is even helping to save CNN.
Deadline reported that in the first quarter — January, February and March — CNN’s ratings rose.
The story said, “Fox News averaged 2.86 million viewers in primetime, up 19% from the same month a year earlier. MSNBC averaged 1.28 million, down 29%, and CNN averaged 1.22 million, up 1%.”
1% growth is negligible but it beats the 29% plunge at MSNBC. Maddow’s sabbatical is costing the fake news channel bigly.
War. What is it good for? Absolutely plenty!
Of course, in Russia, if you dissent against the government, someone will come knocking on your door. We, under Democrat totalitarian rule, are not far behind. Would that they could do more than just kick people off of Twitter or Facebook for wrong-think, but it is obvious to most that it was idiot Biden’s policies that green lighted Putin’s invasion and Biden has suffered accordingly (but not nearly enough).
Zelensky has proved to be a good leader in tragic conditions.
Just to reiterate: Fox has DOUBLE….DOUBLE…DOUBLE… viewership of CNN.
Rogan has at least four times the viewers than any other cable show on Leftist media.
Gutfeld is the number one viewed show in late night.
Who is the “mainstream” now?
Certainly not CNN. Who watches or even listens to those creeps, anyway?
But it did not save biden. He is in total free fall rejected by a majority of American voters because he is illegitimate
04/04/22 – Harrowing Photos Show Two Pictures Of Zelenskyy Taken Just 40 Days Apart
This is the face of a guy who had a ride to safety waiting, but refused to take it.
I am growing weary of the pro zelensky site. Everyday out come the Pom poms for this pos
Yeah, but you’re someone who can’t seem to distinguish between Hitler and Santa Claus.
Zelensky has the nazis on his side committing war crimes.
The only reason not to assassinate Putin is so he can be tried and publicly hanged.
The man has committed crimes against humanity.
Xi Jinping has as well. We gonna get a war crimes trial for him?
So did Obama, at least as far as the Geneva Convention goes.
What’s his fate, exactly?
You have ZERO concern for Ukrainians or anything resembling holding Putin accountable.
Bet that’s the answer you have for most things. You people want blood.
I got this one!
Zelensky has Nazis and begs for weapons, Santa has a herd of flying reindeer and a self sustaining toy factory.
greg seems to be confused about that darn Nazi thing
You seem to think the “Nazi thing” is about politics, when it’s actually about mass murder. Putin has become an enemy of civilization; an enemy of women, children, and the elderly. He’s an enemy of every freedom and human value that you pretend to care about.
Yup mass murder of eastern Ukrainians, Sent there by politicians to protect their financial interests, they hire sons of American Politicians.
You know absolutely nothing about the origin of the video or the identities of the people in it.
As do you on anything you’ve posted
I sure as hell know the pictures of the Ukrainian cities Putin has reduced to rubble are real. I sure as fuck know whose tanks and artillery are on the wrong side of the Ukrainian border. I know who sent millions of women and children fleeing for their lives.
Because you say so is not evidence dimwit
I see no reason to believe that the right any grasp of what “evidence” actually is. What’s more, I don’t think the right gives a good goddamn what’s true or false—they only care about what’s useful to their atavistic, knuckle-dragging political ideology.
Putin, Xi, Kim, Trump—they’re all cards from the same deck.
The evidence shows that Zelensky and some Ukrainians are as bad as Putin and some Russians.
NATO/US/DAVOS have been playing games in Ukraine for years. Now they are winning stupid prizes.
IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, AND WE REJECT ANY ATTEMPTS BY OUR GOVERNMENT TO WASTE MORE MONEY TO HIDE THEIR OWN SINS IN UKRAINIAN OIL COMPANIES, BIOLABS, AND INSTALLATIONS OF DICTATORS PANTOMIMING IN FRONT OF GREEN SCREENS.
Is Zelensky even in Ukraine?
“Ideology” is something that claims a man can be a woman vice versa. It claims kids should “learn” about things so they can be indoctrinated to achieve a godless, unscientific hell that will leave millions dead.
The “Right” right now is just people who know America works, and the Constitution works.
We don’t need your ideology anywhere around our Republic, so please piss off or be tried for sedition.
Another daily reminder what a hypocrite Greg is
Of course he thought Putin’s perception of a growing threat was justified when Obama was in office
greg is anti-Ukraine. He always has been.
greg has lost his battle over Trump and now that it looks like hillary will be indicted for conspiracy, greg pivot to all day everyday Putin as his new boogeyman
I no longer take issue with Romney’s position on Vladimir Putin. Apparently you now do. Apparently we have learned different lessons over the past 8 years.
I agreed with Romney then, and now, on Russia. You argued that Russia isn’t that bad because they had reason to be threatened by NATO on their border. Obama told you to be a-ok with the 2014 invasion, so you were. Now your new lord and savior tells you to be up in arms about the 2022 invasion for the exact same reasons and ta-da! You’re up in arms. Amazing how that happens.
You drone on and on and on about the evil Russian empire while lauding the Nazi’s and saying not one whit about China.
2012 called. They want their foreign policy back.
Nost of us understood the Russian issue more than 8 years ago. You have much to learn from those of us who think greggie.
So how did you manage to forget everything about Putin that you supposedly knew?
You don’t anything from a video or picture, unless you’re ready to admit Biden withheld aid to Ukraine, but his own words, and we are now trying to coverup the corrupt deals and biolabs Biden and other Western Politicians funded and got rich off of.
You’re confusing Biden with the sleazebag who tried but failed to shake Zelensky down. That embarrassment is actually the origin of your animosity toward a Ukrainian patriot. Putin, of course, assisted in getting Trump elected to begin with—so Yay Putin! It’s not like anyone has forgotten.
Perhaps your head is still in your ass. John Durham is about to drop a thermonuclear indictment for conspiracy on your queen hillary
The entire Russia collusion story was a hoax and they all knew it.
Trump was a Putin asset. His followers continue to be Putin assets. They’re aiding and abetting Putin’s destruction of Ukraine by providing propaganda support. They do so as a means of attacking Biden, and as revenge against Zelensky, who wouldn’t cooperate with Trump’s smear campaign.
That narrative is falling down around your ears by the second, boy, as we watch the world burn now, because of the illegal activity of Biden and others in Ukraine.
Activity Trump was trying to investigate, as a President should.
Everything Trump did hurt Putin. Everything idiot Biden has done enabled Putin to invade Ukraine. You must enjoy being W R O N G all the time.
That’s it greggie keep screaming your propoganda while you have your fingers in your ears!
Low oil prices= Trump=Putin CANNOT start wars.
High oil prices=Biden=Putin CAN start wars.
Low oil prices=Trump=Putin CANNOT start wars=The simple arithmetic of Trumpista morons.
Except that it is a proven fact.
No he isn’t. Putin and the right’s game is to put out so much crap that people no longer believe actual truth exists, or give up trying to figure out what it is.
You are so out of touch soy boy
Durham Hints at a Conspiracy Involving Agents of Hillary Clinton’s Campaign to Harm Trump with Russia Collusion Hoax
Let me know when Durham actually does something besides hint. Meanwhile, How many of Trump’s political associates have actually been indicted? Thus far, ELEVEN.
On Tuesday Germany’s Deutsche Bank Becomes First Major Bank to Forecast Biden Recession
Your mask is slipping, sock puppet. We already knew what your game is.
The Mueller report cleared Trump of these FBI/Hillary coup-waging allegations.
No collusion, no obstruction. TOTAL EXONERATION.
Idiot Biden IS that sleazebag. He and his sleazebag son ripped off the US taxpayer by stealing aid money sent to Ukraine. Idiot Biden threatened to withhold more aid if they didn’t fire the prosecutor investigating the money laundering. Real life vs your fantasy world.
Putin assisted Hillary by feeding her disinformation. He wanted her in office so he could blackmail her with all her emails she stupidly left laying around available to every adversary.
Biden was the Slease bag who threatened loss of funds if the honest investigator was not fired.
No confusion 45’s kids never worked for a corrupt foreign gas oligarch. Never were transferred 3.5 million from a Russian widow. Didnt go into business with Chinese business people. You dont spell soros installed puppet p a t r i o t. No one here is cheering on this military action. Innocents are dying, Over 14 billion US tax dollars to fight a proxy war, only to be told there isnt enough money to launder for Covid.
“Trump claimed” isn’t evidence of anything. Trump is a proven liar, so anything that he says is automatically suspect. Trump still pitching his stolen election bullshit, in spite of the fact that NO credible evidence supporting it has EVER been provided ANYWHERE.
Senate Homeland Security Committee investigation: Hunter was dirty and Biden and Obama knew it
But that’s not even all of it.
Russian documents show criminal organizations funneled $3.4 million through Hunter
And there’s lots and lots more. Never any evidence of wrongdoing by Trump. but there is a BOAT LOAD of evidence idiot Biden is connected to Hunter’s corruption.
“Damning Allegations,” because the Senate’s “bombshell report” doesn’t have one damn bit of actual evidence to back it up.
Just bank transfers signed by Hunter, those are called receipts.
Everything is digital nowdays, everything tracked by big brother.
Greg thinks all allegations are just made up and thrown out there. That’s what he’s used to coming out of his party. He wasn’t aware there is such a thing as legitimate allegations that are actually backed up by solid facts.
When you apply your double-standards so blindly, so egregiously, eventually people are just going to drop the pretext that you care about the Law and treat you like a criminal.
Better be prepared for that day, greg. It’s close.
You don’t actually know what the hell Trump’s “kids” did.
We know they succeeded in closing historic peace agreements. We also know what Hunter did and, mostly, what idiot Biden did and it was all corrupt. And who bought Hunter’s “art” and what that money actually bought hasn’t even been examined yet.
That’s no how rational people think. That’s how totalitarians think.
Assuming a crime is committed just to oust your political rivals?
We KNOW what Hunter did because we have physical evidence. We KNOW what Joe Biden did because he admitted it on camera.
In our country, you innocent until proven guilty. You’re not “guilty” just because it fits the narrative being fed to the mob.
During the Kavanaugh hearings, Greg clearly stated that when faced with accusations, it is Kavanaugh’s responsibility to prove his innocence. So, in the face of numerous and well documented accusations against Hunter and idiot Biden, it is THEIR responsibility to prove them false. Good luck with all that.
Not only withheld aid (blankets, MRE’s) but he and his son stole US aid money through the Burisma money laundering scheme. Yeah, Trump’s kids secure historic peace agreements between long-time adversaries, idiot Biden’s kid was snorting coke, banging whores and investing in bioweapons.
Yeah, who would want Trump around?
Kind of like you don’t know anything about the videos you’re posting.
They are probably deep fakes.
But headstomps are okay if non-Russians do it?
Zelensky seems desperate. Killing his own people to get stooges like greg all worked up over Putin. Then greg spreads lies about Putin while it is his guy who turns out to be the dirtbag here.
That is yor opinion and it matters as much as a pile of dog shit
Then there is a long list of genocidal dictators living RIGHT NOW that you would want brought to justice.
XI XINGPING BEING THE TOP OF THE F*CKING LIST.
If that’s not so, you’re a partisan asshole and your “concern” is dismissed.
Meanwhile biden could care less about America’s border while Americans care more about our southern border than the Ukraine/Russia border skirmish
Gen. Milley says this war can “go on for years.”
There you have it.
Or the radiation from it can go on for thousands.
04/05/22 – Who was Olga Sukhenko? Ukrainian Mayor and family allegedly executed and killed by Russian troops
Het Greg whos the party crasher trying to get Obamas attention?
04/04/22- Ukraine says Russian atrocities in Borodyanka, another town near Kyiv, are likely worse than in Bucha
The media is softening us up for war with Russia. Possible nuclear exchange, no sane MFer among them not f’n 1. All the kerfuffle of bodies in the streets before any investigation the media is screaming about genocide. If it was genocide there wouldnt be a citizen left alive to crawl out from the rubble. Massacre yes but there is the possibilty of Ukraine Nazis killing collaberators during the police “sweep” after the Russians withdrew.
My favorite media twist is brave Ukraine soldiers sweeping for landmines with the film crew walking backwards in front of them.
Putin knows damn well what happens to rulers that attach their script to gold, remember Gaddahfi?
Zelensky through his handlers did nothing but provoke Putin demanding NATO entry, then EU admission. Not getting that it was weapons lots and lots of high tech weaponry. Billions are being poured into destroying Ukraine and murdering the people.
Civil defense drills are being held in Russia, we get transgender day speeches. Duck and cover every world war was started by Democrats.
Be warned: the content is graphic and disturbing. It’s the video presented to the UN Security Council earlier today. It’s hard to tolerate 2 minutes of what Ukrainians have endured in their own country for 40 days.
If allowed, Putin will try to duplicate this on a vast scale in Kharkiv. That’s where he’ll be headed as soon as his forces have been reinforced with fresh Russian conscripts. Terror and total destruction isn’t a side-effect. It’s the entire point.
Indeed. It’s war.
If you cared, you’d go over there and start killing Russians.
Anything less then that means you don’t care and your posts or false concerns.
This war isn’t going to be the kind of globalizing event you cowards think it is.
Is there a trail of doritos and hot pockets for him to follow to find Ukraine?
This statement alone debunks your claim that you are 71, live in Indiana, and fought in Vietnam.
No one with that experience could be so ignorant.
Assholes such as yourself feel no need to explain the shit that they expel. It’s simply their function.
Ukraine is a sideshow to a sideshow. Germany alone is financing the skirmish with their dependence on natural gas from Russia.
We have an upcoming invasion that will crush the ability of border patrol enforcement to manage and biden could care less. He would prefer to insist that parents affirm their childrens transgender dystopia. The democrat party wants to gay groom the children of America
Senate Republicans Block Democrats’ $10 Billion Covid Bill Over Title 42 Fight
So, the GOP will let more Americans die of COVID unless Trump’s Title 42 policy is reinstated.
The total of US COVID deaths to date is 981 thousand. Around 400 per day are still dying, and BA.2 is on the rise. Hopefully it will prove less lethal.
If COVID is still a concern, why are we inviting 18,000 illegal immigrants a month into the country with no plan or ability to process them? Besides, until Democrats can answer what happened to $80 billion of COVID aid that is MISSING, no more money should be appropriated. We should finish the wall; think of it a a great, big, EFFECTIVE mask.
Sorry, my mistake; that’s 18,000 A DAY. That’s how much Democrats are concerned with COVID.
This is for greg and other confused war mongers…
Please remind yourself they are dying on Biden’s watch, and that Biden/Democrats/LeftistLunies have killed a few hundred thousand people by withholding drugs that would have worked so they could push a dangerous, emergency authorization-dependent gene therapy from a group of companies who gave billions to help install Biden.
Yet not one word from you against the very government, the CCP, that is responsible for not only those 981,000 Americans that have died, but all the thousands of people from other nations that have died from Covid-19.
And not one word from you criticizing China and Mexico for the deaths of American. China for making Fentanyl or Mexico for letting their drug cartels bring it across our southern border. NOT ONE DAMN WORD.
So please, spare us your (pretend) angst when it comes to Ukraine. The only reason you are now anti-Putin is because China is trying to make Russia a client state.
The entire discussion in front of the US House was missing one key topic. Conservative Treehouse pointed out that the US response to Ukraine is led by Biden’s State Department. This is the same group that led the disastrous surrender of Afghanistan:
Milley noted that Ukraine is a long-term conflict. This was the main talking point.
How well did “diplomatic resolution” work out with Adolf Hitler?
How well did “diplomatic resolution” work out with Adolf Hitler?
You are right Zelensky is never to be trusted
When presented by weak personalities like Chamberlin and Daladier, about as well as our diplomacy presented by a weak, corrupt, incompetent idiot like idiot Biden.
Terror and total destruction isn’t a side-effect. It’s the entire point.
The point is to depopulate Ukraine so that it can sustain no resistance and be brought under Russia’s control. Putin doesn’t give a good goddamn what it takes to do this. He’s totally devoid of religion-based morals or fundamental humanistic values. All he gives a damn about are his ego-based goals. This explains the deliberate, persistent shelling of civilian targets—houses, apartment buildings, schools, children’s hospitals, nursing homes, churches, or whatever. It explains the rape, the looting, the torture, and murder of civilians. It’s why they’re hitting non-military targets with cluster bombs. It’s why he targets ethnically Russian Ukrainian population centers the same as those that are ethnically Ukrainian.
This isn’t simply a war of aggression, it’s calculated genocide.
Russia must be economically crippled to the point where Putin is killed or removed by his own people. The only alternative to that is direct military intervention in Ukraine by NATO, with all of the terrible risks that it entails. So make your choice. Sitting your your complacent asses while Putin dominates Ukraine and then all of Europe is not an option.
You can’t even control your typing enough not to admit it now.
I made my choice, as did the majority of voters. We chose Trump. You and yours bypassed that choice and installed a puppet in the way of Biden.
This war is your doing, your responsibility, and your consequence for rigging elections.
Own it like a man, hard as that might be for you.
To reiterate, you globalist troll pig:
Just remember that when you cite those Covid numbers, numbers of dead people killed by a released virus that was intentionally exacerbated by Biden and Democrats.
They are enacting a genocide in this country.
Oh the horror of wars, its insane that not one leader can negotiate peace for the innocents. But hey heres more weapons to prolong the struggle and get more innocents murdered.
You are a war monger and a Nazi goosestepper and forget where Zelensky came from. Television, he is a fraud, showing awful footage with his narrative, while all other narrative is censored.
Sandman, Kyle, and so many other MSM narratives proven to be huge lies, not GAF who they destroy for their narrative.
Milley, who said this would be over in 48 hrs now says it will go on for years. Yeah… probably 3 years, until the usefulness to Democrats is exhausted.
It will go on until Putin has been deposed or killed.
There’s a point where partisan politics can turn into treason.
Biden’s Actions Are Having a Dreadful Impact on the Price of Food and the Worst Is Yet to Come
Don’t worry. Trump will still be able to afford his cheeseburgers.
So will idiot Biden’s wealthy contributors. But will we?

No better example then you in 2014:
You were his best bud back then…due to partisan politics
Of course he thought Putin’s perception of a growing threat was justified when Obama was in office..due to partisan politics.
Your treason knows no bounds.
Why is Biden’s state department intent on sustaining and escalating the border skirmish in Ukraine.
Would not all parties involved be better served if the state department engaged in diplomacy instead of war mongering? After all, the pentagon is charged with warring…
Yep. It will be prolonged until Putin is deposed or dead.
Somewhere a clock is missing a bird.
Why does the biden regimes state department opposed to de-escalation?
Because deescalation would only provide Putin time to reinforce and reposition his military forces. He started this bullshit, and will resume it the moment he thinks he’s ready.
We’ve seen what Putin is and what his intentions are. Only an idiot gives a murderous thug a “time out” to regroup. You’d have to be a moron to do so. Putin has lost an estimated 25 percent of his forces in Ukraine. It’s no time to take off the pressure. It’s time to double down.
