Ukraine: Biden’s reckless proxy war

January 31, 2023

As the war in Ukraine escalates, with Russia sending more troops and munitions to the now ravaged nation — displacing civilians who survive to wander the frozen (average Jan. temperature in Kyiv is 27°F) wasteland with the clothes on their backs. Previously a major producer and world-wide exporter of wheat and corn, displaced Ukrainians are now wondering how they will provide sustenance for themselves and their families.

According to Reuters News, Russia warned the United States on Monday that the last remaining pillar of bilateral nuclear arms control could expire in 2026 without a replacement due to what it said were U.S. efforts to inflict “strategic defeat” on Moscow in Ukraine.

We are not authorities on Ukraine and its untenable situation, but we do read and watch the news. We also remain attuned to former President Donald Trump who recently posted this on his Truth Social Account.

The New York Post headlined a recent report, ‘Biden mislabels Ukraine as aggressor while announcing tanks to Kyiv.’

Dan Steinbock, who writes for The American Conservative authored, “The unwarranted Ukraine proxy war: A year later,” which is illuminating.

Slo Joe finally gonna go…to Mexico?

Don’t be conned by the leftwing media: criminal illegal alien invaders are neither “asylum seekers” nor “migrants”

It’s been nearly two years since Joe Biden’s January 20, 2021 presidential inauguration. Among his vacuous campaign pledges was his promise to visit America’s southern border abutting California, Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas. He even appointed a “border czar,” none other than VP Kamala Harris, who cacklingly informed us she has also been too busy.  Her rise to political power started in California, where she served as a district attorney and attorney general for the state, mentored, aided and abetted by former San Francisco Willie Brown with whom she developed a “close“ relationship.

Don’t count on Slo Joe to describe the indefensible, sieve-like border that is the gateway for illegal aliens, many of whom are undeterred, previously deported criminal repeat offenders, such as Edwin Ramos, who gunned down a San Francisco father Anthony Bologna, 48, and his sons Michael, 20, and Matthew, 16, returning home from a picnic. Mayor Gavin Newsom’s office issued a written statement, noting he was “deeply sympathetic to the Bologna family’s devastating loss. A terrible crime was committed, and my heart goes out to the family.” Not a word about prosecuting the murderer.

Kathryn Steinle, 32, was randomly shot to death in broad daylight by Francisco Sanchez in front of her dad by a 7-time felon who should have been handed over to immigration authorities following previous arrests, but was allowed to continue his criminality thanks to San Francisco‘s sanctuary city policy.

These 2015 cases are just the tip of the iceberg, but received notoriety due to the then-shocking nature of the crimes. Now they are commonplace.

President Donald Trump campaigned on, and was committed to constructing a border wall, which the Biden administration has been dismantling.

Biden will be in Mexico City January 9-10 for the North American Leaders’ Summit with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador. If Biden was a leader, he would use the opportunity of meeting with Lopez Obrador to set parameters and submit a list of expectations and compliance with our laws.

Be sure not to expect much from Slo Joe and you’ll never be disappointed.

Biden pardons Griner: Indefensible prisoner swap leaves Paul Whelan in USSR

December 9, 2022

John Bolton, former National Security Advisor: “Obviously, there’s a lot of very understandable human emotion here in getting Griner released, but this is a very bad mistake by the Biden administration.”

Unpatriotic Phoenix Mercury center Brittney Griner, known for her comment, “I honestly feel we should not play the national anthem during our (WNBA) basketball season,” adding she would not be on the floor if it is, as she hyped honoring “victims of police brutality and Black Lives Matter” — is now all too happy to be an American.

Fox News commentator Tucker Carlson summed this debacle up succinctly saying, “The Biden administration chose Brittney Griner over Paul Whelan…the basketball player over the Marine facing 16 years. There was only room for one in the lifeboat and the Marine got left behind.”

Whelan, a former Marine and Trump supporter, who worked as a police officer in Michigan, had flown to Moscow to attend the wedding of a friend from his time in the Marines, when he was apprehended and jailed in 2018 on falsified espionage charges.

Russian officials have long demanded the release of Viktor Bout known as the “Merchant of Death,” serving a 25-year sentence in a U.S. prison after being convicted in 2011 of conspiracy to kill Americans, conspiracy to deliver anti-aircraft missiles, and aiding a terrorist organization.

When asked if Russia got a better deal in the swap, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said, “Our choice was Brittney or no one at all.” She also denied any involvement of the United Arab Emirates in the negotiations, though this news bulletin disputes her account.

When given the chance to engage in a prisoner exchange with Russia, Joe Biden foolishly gave up Viktor Bout in exchange for tattooed and dreadlocked 6’9” Griner, who narcissistically entered with vape cartridges with cannabis oil in her luggage, which she knew to be illegal in Russia. She has played in Russia nearly seven years and was reportedly making $1 million as a player for UMMC Yekaterinburg — far more than her WNBA salary of $227,900.

“Moments ago, I spoke to Brittney. She is safe, she is on a plane, she is on her way home,” Biden exclaimed yesterday. “She will soon be back in the arms of her loved ones, and she should have been there all along.” Griner’s wife, Cherelle, was on hand for the preposterous announcement.

“I’m proud that today we have made one more family whole,” Biden said, hypocritically giving lip-service that he will continue to work to free Whelan. “We’ll keep negotiating for Paul’s relief. I guarantee it.’

Don’t hold your breath. A guarantee from Biden is as worthless as his dementia-challenged memory.


US Military falls victim to political correctness, crucial readiness lags

October 8, 2022

It’s imperative the US intensify military recruitment

Imprimis, the free monthly speech digest of Hillsdale College is dedicated to educating citizens and promoting civil and religious liberty by covering cultural, economic, political, and educational issues. The content of Imprimis is drawn from speeches delivered at Hillsdale College events. First published in 1972, Imprimis is one of the most widely circulated opinion publications in the nation with over 6.2 million readers. It recently published a shocking report, titled “The Rise of Wokeness in the Military,” adapted from a talk by Ret. Lt. Gen. Thomas Spoehr (bio included in link).

Fox News also covered the absurdity in “The Air Force Academy diversity training, instructing cadets to use words that ‘include all genders,’ and drop the terms, ‘mom and dad.”

As we approach Veterans Day, November 11, a day specifically set aside to honor our military veterans, this is a timely reminder of the need to keep our military at full capacity and readiness. Russia’s increasingly erratic Vladimir Putin is escalating his aggressions against Ukraine, provocatively detonating bombs. In this recent edition of the UK’s The Guardian newspaper, Putin was described as railing against a “satanic” west, in what was portrayed by observers as his most anti-western speech to date. He is growing ever more aggressive, warning, his threat to resort to nuclear weapons ‘not a bluff.’

When left-of-center NBC News headlines a recent report, “Every branch of the U.S. military is struggling to make its 2022 recruiting goals, officials say,” there is reason to be concerned.

Wokeness is not on the mind of tyrannical, aggressive dictators. It also will not keep us safe.

VP Harris blunders, claims US “alliance” with aggressor North Korea

September 30, 2022

“Border Czar” Harris cavorts in Asia, still neglects US/Mexico border where invasion impacting USA is ongoing

Finding anyone who unequivocally asserts Vice President Kamala Harris is up to the job of assuming the reins of government if we were to have an incapacitated president would be less of an absurdity, if we were not already in that tenuous position.  

Joe Biden, the oldest elected president in American history, is a clearly out-of-touch octogenarian, who campaigned out of his basement two years ago, has less than a nodding acquaintance with the truth, and has demonstrated mental fragility in the intervening years. He has fallen multiple times while boarding Air Force One, fallen at home, resulting in a broken foot, fallen off his bike while attempting to demonstrate his non-existent fitness. He has difficulty articulating simple sentences, and was embarrassingly ignored when Barack Obama paid a WH visit. 

Within short order following Harris’ return trip to the U.S. after her four-day Asian jaunt, North Korea fired two short-range ballistic missiles into the sea, marking North Korea’s third round of missile launches this week, following previous provocative actions.

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre casually acknowledged North Korea “has a history of doing these types of tests,” adding that Harris’ Asia trip this week is a demonstration of “our rock-solid commitment” to the security of Japan and South Korea.

The trip was obviously a diversion from the demanding duties of securing our own chaotic border where Kamala Harris has definitely not demonstrated a “rock solid commitment.”

As millions arrive illegally following Biden’s orders to tear down the effective border wall — miles of which were under construction during President Donald Trump‘s administration — the U.S. Customs and Border Protection has a significantly different public face focusing on its history, which even used the dem’s now verboten term “Illegal aliens.” Under Biden, illegal aliens are now deceptively referred to as “migrants” and the colored-coded page of continually updating numbers of illegal invaders has vanished. There is, however, a “Scam Alert” which has nothing to do with the sieve-like border, though it has dozens of undoubtedly well-paid press officers listed. The Biden/Harris administration views illegals warmly as new voters, irreversibly increasing the size of the democrat party. The only way to save our nation is to elect Republicans.


Sept. 11, 200!: We must never forget

September 11, 2022

Twenty-one years ago today, 2,973 people were murdered by these 19 Muslim fundamentalist Al-Qaeda terrorists who commandeered commercial airliners and flew them into the dual 110-story World Trade Center Twin Towers in New York City and into the Pentagon. The death toll includes 40 passengers and crew members aboard the fourth hijacked plane, United 93, which crashed in a field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania, as courageous passengers rushed the cockpit that was overtaken by hijackers. Many of them, here on over-stayed student visas, had trained for this reprehensible day at Arizona flight schools. 

Along with our American citizens, people from 90 other countries were killed in the attacks perpetrated against non-combatants by Islamo-fascist extremists.

Regardless of where we were or what we were doing, not a single one of us who woke up to the televised horrors of September 11, 2001 will ever forget the shock we felt as we learned that our nation was under attack on that sunny fall morning. Network hosts were stunned speechless, trying to digest what they were seeing as one plane followed another into the Twin Towers. Thick, black smoke began billowing, followed by enormous orange fireballs, and desperate people could be seen leaping from the high-rise buildings.

This is the live 9/11/01 footage from ‘The Today Show’ on NBC as the massacre initially unfolded on air. The show begins with Matt Lauer’s perfunctory interview about Howard Hughes (which can be scrolled past) when harsh realities eclipse the chatter. (The clip contains commercials.)

Chicago dem Mayor Lori Lightweight puts border ignorance on display

September 7, 2022

Wants illegal invaders treated with ”dignity and respect”

Farcical dem Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot preposterously claims she is happy to welcome bus loads of illegal aliens to Chicago. Yet, reacting to Texas Gov. Greg Abbott’s latest move to send the invaders to Chicago, Lightfoot called his policies “racist” and declared the Trump administration — which has been out of office since Jan. 20, 2021 — guilty of “human cruelty.”

U.S. Customs and Border Protection has dramatically altered its reporting standards under the Biden administration, now stating its “top priority is to keep terrorists and their weapons from entering the U.S.” The revealing charts and numbers of invaders that were easily accessible during the Trump administration have vanished. A new title page absurdly headlines: Air and Marine Operations Visions Strategy 2030.” 

Border state governors Greg Abbott (TX) and Arizona’s Doug Ducey, who have dealt directly with the border invasion for years, have been busing the illegal invaders to other parts of the United States, notably New York City, Chicago and Washington, D.C., in defiance of the lax policies of the Biden administration that have allowed the invasion to continue unabated and negatively impact America’s border states with increased criminality while creating financial burdens on citizen taxpayers. On April 20, 2021, Ducey declared a state of emergency, deploying the national guard to the border. He is term-limited and will be replaced in the upcoming election, and still the invasion continues.

Gov. Abbott recently sent this unequivocal letter to the mayors of New York City and Washington, D.C., describing the “security crisis created by President Biden’s dangerous open border policies.” He concluded with an invitation for them to visit the Texas border, specifically inviting them to contact his office to schedule the visit “to see firsthand the dire situation that only grows more urgent with each passing day.”

Best advice? None of us should hold our breath waiting for a reply. The illegal invasion benefits democrats, increasing their numbers. Nothing else matters to them.
