Putin is on the ropes. The question now is does NATO press its current advantage or try to give Vlad a face-saving off-ramp?
It’s dicey. And there are no guarantees going forward. But to this point NATO, the United States, and yes, Joe Biden have played this masterfully. Don’t you just love functional adults?
Or a country that is full of functional adults? I’m talking about Ukraine.
Now, we should not overplay our hand, either. While I appreciate the spirit of Poland’s proposal to funnel MIGs to Ukraine, it’s a bad idea. Period.
I support the president’s Tuesday decision to ban Russian energy imports from entering the United States. It was also smart to make that a unilateral U.S. move, without pulling NATO countries who are more dependent on Russian oil than we are into it.
Yes. U.S. gas prices are high. Yes, they are going to go higher for a while. Think Big Picture.
Applause also for McDonald’s, Pepsi, Coke and even The Ubiquitous and Pretentious Coffee House for shutting it down in Vlad Land. Russians like saturated fat, caffeine, sugar and fizz almost as much as we do. This is not going to play well in Mother Russia.
Updated reports show that at least 114 U.S. Capitol Police officers were injured in the January 6, 2021 attempted coup. Tell me again how that wasn’t an armed insurrection.
No more gaslighting. We all saw it. Or at least anyone with eyes saw it.
You’re Number One, Guy Reffitt. Congrats, convicted insurrectionist. Hopefully, there are about 7,000 soon-to-be incarcerated criminals lining up behind you.
Also a special citation to Nothing to be Proud of Boys leader Enrique Tarrio. I think “criminal conspiracy” has a nice ring to it, don’t you? Seems this conspiracy spreads to the Oaf Keepers, too. What a bunch of maroons.
Color me unimpressed with Lester Holt’s recent “interview” with Bill Barr. The former U.S. attorney general was a mealy-mouthed, ass covering, try to play it both ways wimp. And Holt let him be just that. That was not an interview. It was a book promotion.
The global COVID-19 death toll has now exceeded six million. The United States leads all nations of the world in deaths with more than 960,000. There’s not a single excuse for that.
And let me ask you a question, Ron DeSantis. It’s one thing, I guess, to oppose mask mandates. But it’s quite another to tell folks who choose to wear masks to take them off. And you say this is about “freedom”?
