Why do we hate Russia? Because they attacked our Democracy! Keep that in mind: our panties are in a wad in 2022 because Team Hillary blamed Russia in 2016. It really is nothing more than that – this is just the op taking on a life of its own and driving a Narrative in ways that are amazing to see. I mean, we let Russia waltz into the Crimea. If we were going to fight a war to defend the sacred borders, that was the time to do it…not years later when Russia has Ukraine in an impossible strategic situation. But, we’re going with this…because part of the op for 2022 and especially 2024 is to keep Russia, Russia, Russia going. It is an excellent distraction from China, after all.

We’re very much in a Twilight Zone here – but we’re only here because we keep going along with it. Or, at least, most of us do. While McConnell and Graham are playing the tired, old Neo-Con record vis a vis Russia, plenty of us are all “just why do I care about Ukraine?”. We can’t get an answer to that: all we get is we must defend Democracy and International Norms. Well, if we’re going to defend Democracy, then lets invade Canada and depose Trudeau.

But we know that is all drivel. We’re not defending anything other than a corrupt and dying Ruling Class. I think our best Rule of Thumb going forward is to assume that anything we’re told to care about is the exact last thing we should care about.

One of the recalled San Francisco school board members is blaming white supremacy for her ouster. Because of course. Had nothing to do with having the kids wear masks while telling white kids they are born racist.

They’re putting up the fences and calling in the National Guard to DC for Pudding Brain’s SOTU. Are they really scared, or are they just trying to drive a Narrative? Probably a little of both. But this is not the action of a government which says it got 81 million votes.

I’m not sure what is more amusing here – Hunter Biden blowing his money on crack or the fact that it’s being spilled by a lady with the on-line handle of “Weed Slut 420.” But here’s the thing – if this was a Republican’s son, this would be 24/7 in the MSM. Because it is Hunter Biden, only a few news outlets are covering it. The bottom line is that Hunter is a massive national security risk and the Chinese probably have their hooks for far in him that Pudding Brain is powerless against them.

Ace has an insight:

The tactic employed by the Democrat Party seems to be 1, creating a “Person of Color” category, 2, assuming that all “Persons of Color” have the political priorities that black progressives do, and 3, use the most militant and extreme fringe of black progressivism to define black progressives.

Thus, the Democrat Party is selling a fringe ideology of decriminalizing crime and taking the education of out schools to Asians. And then saying, “You’re Persons of Color. You like this.”

But they don’t like this.

In fact, most blacks don’t like this. This isn’t the politics of blacks. It’s the politics of the Black Panther Party.

Which is then sold to Indian immigrants as somehow representing their interests.

More and more people, and more and more Democrat constituent groups, are waking up to the fact that Wokeness = Death. And that sacrificing your life, or your child’s life, for Twitter Virtue Points is a bad deal.

It really is that, isn’t it? Democrats have taken the most extreme views of people like Angela Davis and Bobby Seale and said that all non-white people are 100% that. Doesn’t make the least bit of sense, but that is what we have. And now it is starting to bite the Democrats. That SF school board recall was driven by Asian-Americans while Latinos are shifting to the GOP as they reject woke ideology in favor of law and prosperity.

A Democrat Congressman – who is both fascist and insane – wants the government to seize the trucks of protestors and pass them out to other people. Never mistake it: they are bad guys. They will tell you they’re the bad guys. Don’t act like they are reasonable people you can work with.

    Russia has today launched all-out war on Ukraine, with attacks coming from the north, south and east simultaneously as bombs, cruise missiles and rockets rained down on targets across the country.

    There are no words to describe the pure hatred I have for the people in charge of this country and the media, academia, and brain dead people who support them.

      Once upon a time, which now seems far far away, our nation understood the dangers of compromised people being in positions of power. Homosexuals were not kept from serving because of bigotry, it was because of the understanding that having secrets that could be discovered made people vulnerable to manipulation by hostile powers. We understood that when a nation, or a movement, had the desire to destroy us we should not allow people from that nation or that movement to be in positions privy to sensitive military or state secrets.

      But then things changed. So when Senator McCarthy identified Communists in high-level sensitive positions in our government he was vilified, demonized and hounded out of office. Our government became riddled with spies and people acting against our best interest. Now our military is infected, as ideological termites are eating away at its very foundations.

      What happened in 2020 is that thoroughly corrupted media platforms purposely hid the facts that the man they were promoting for the presidency had a long and sordid career of selling favors to other countries. They hid proof that his son, who had been the bag man for this operation, collecting the graft through his sham “business” relationships in countries where Daddy had funneled billions of dollars, had documented a lot of this in laptops he then carelessly abandoned at a computer repair shop.

      So now we have our own head of state beholden to our enemies. If he doesn’t bend the knee to them and sacrifice the security of his own country, he can be revealed for the crook and traitor he is.

      The entire future of the United States is teetering on a knife edge, and though the immediate dangers are from hostile nations and the rot being so energetically developed in our culture, it all comes back to the media.

      The simple fact is, if our press had done its job the American public would have known what was happening, and I have enough faith in the majority of Americans to think we would never have let it go on. I blame our Complicit Agenda Media for the mess we’re in right now—that and the difficulty we are going to have in changing our direction.

    And let’s not forget the bio warfare the global elite waged on this country and to some extent still are:

    Fresh suspicion that Covid may have been tinkered with in a lab emerged today after scientists found genetic material owned by Moderna in the virus’s spike protein. They identified a tiny snippet of code that is identical to part of a gene patented by the vaccine maker three years before the pandemic. It was discovered in SARS-CoV-2 ‘s unique furin cleavage site, the part that makes it so good at infecting people and separates it from other coronaviruses. The structure has been one of the focal points of debate about the virus’s origin, with some scientists claiming it could not have been acquired naturally. The international team of researchers suggest the virus may have mutated to have a furin cleavage site during experiments on human cells in a lab.

      OF COURSE the pharma companies were part of this from the get-go,

      As you have pointed out, yesterday’s conspiracy theories are today’s breaking news. Not long ago even mentioning the possibility that this virus was not a natural evolution of a pathogen but was part of a grand and malignant plot would have gotten you derision and contempt.

      But here we are. Our government agencies (FDA, CDC) are lying about treatments that are readily available, and cheap, that can and do save lives, so the government can funnel billions of dollars to pharmaceutical companies for products that do far less and cost far more. We know now that tens of thousands of lives were lost, simply tossed away in the pursuit of money and power.

      Well, under Trump Russia didn’t have this big money-making pipeline letting them haul in enough money to fund an invasion. And under Trump, when Putin rattled sabers at Ukraine we sent Ukraine Javelin anti-tank missiles and rocket powered grenades and sniper rifles. (Obama/Biden sent them blankets.)

      And as if by magic, invading a country armed with anti-tank missiles and RPGs didn’t seem like such a good idea to Vladimir. It took us helping boost the Russian economy, coupled with a drooling failure in the White House who could never convince anyone he represented any kind of deterrent to Russian expansion to make today’s atrocities possible.

        I might say the strategy of the House Dems to try to disqualify Trump from running again so they don’t have to run against him is pretty savvy, as it shows a clever approach to rigging an election years before it takes place, but that wouldn’t mean I don’t think it’s sleazy and corrupt and so inherently dishonest only a Dem would consider it.

        Never underestimate the depths of toxic stupidity occupied by the Left—like the certifiably insane broad who decided that “Honk Honk” from truckers is a code, doncha see, because “Honk” starts with the letter H so Honk Honk is code for HH or Heil Hitler which means truckers are Nazis which means they are white supremacists.

    OK, the impossible has happened. I agree with Adam Schiff. Evidently proving the adage that even a blind pig can find an acorn, sometimes, he has said:

    Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) accused Russian President Vladimir Putin of using his country’s enormous petroleum reserves as leverage over the European nations that import that oil and gas. With that in mind, he’s advocating for the “wholesale” elimination of the Nord Stream 2 project in response to Putin’s remarkable decision to strike Ukraine Wednesday evening.

    “I think it ought to spell at a minimum, the final death of Nord Stream 2,” Schiff told reporters in the Capitol. “That ought to be our response to Russia’s use of oil and gas as a geopolitical weapon.”

    Once someone whispered in Dementia Joe’s ear that Putin is really Corn Pop, he decided to get tough with him. Sanctions and scowls and maybe an ominous-sounding whisper. Yet he won’t stop funding the war on Ukraine.

    …. according to Forbes, “The United States imported more gasoline and other refined petroleum products from Russia than any other country in 2021…In 2021, Russia accounted for 21% of all U.S. gasoline imports. And we’re going to keep sending billions of dollars to Russia. “You know, in our (Russia) sanctions package, we specifically designed (it) to allow energy payments to continue,” Biden told Americans on Thursday:

    In what kind of insane world does the president of the United States insist on continuing to send billions of dollars to a geopolitical rival who is using the money to fund the invasion of a peaceful country while at the same time throttling domestic production of the same kind of energy that would free us from dependence on foreign oil and boost our national economy, putting tens of thousands of Americans to work in high paying jobs?

    Evidently the kind of insane upside-down inside-out world where Adam Schiff can say something that makes sense.

    Former President Donald Trump blasted President Joe Biden over Russian President Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine, boasting onstage at the Conservative Political Action Conference Saturday night that the deadly assault wouldn’t have happened on his watch. He also riled up the crowd by almost immediately teasing a 2024 presidential run

    The Ukraine invasion would not have happened if he were there, and we really do need him back in office. He’s the only one with the courage, the vision, and the experience to pull us out of this crap.

    Donald Trump lashed out against liberal cities for their ‘soft-on-crime’ policies that he claimed had left America’s streets ‘drenched with blood’ at the CPAC conservative conference on Saturday. Trump said Democratic leaders were to blame for the recent rise in homicides across the country, which saw an uptick in 2021 of 5 per cent last year after a 44 per cent rise the previous year, according to the Council on Criminal Justice’s last report. ‘Murders are setting records in our cities,’ he said. ‘The streets of our Democrat-run cities are drenched in blood.’ Trump’s comments are the latest rebuke against Democrats like Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot and New York Mayor Eric Adams, who vowed to curb a continuing rise in violent crimes but have little to show for it. In Chicago, murders are up by 7 per cent over the same time last year, sexual assaults are up 12 per cent from last year and aggravated assaults are up 14 per cent. Last year was the city’s most violent, with 3,561 shootings reported and more homicides recorded than any other city, 795. Bob Tataryn and his wife, Kathryn, both 72, were some of the latest victims of violence in the Windy City when they were assaulted on their way to catch a subway last week.
