You have never seen a speech like this.
These are the lessons learned.
1 – Energy Policy Matters
While we agree that Ukraine should not be a NATO member, much of Western Europe, especially Germany, has been overly influenced by Putin because they get about half of their oil and fuel from Russia. Trump was making progress on reversing this.
They could have bout that oil from the United States but Democrat’s like Biden have always tanked domestic oil production using executive regulatory powers. In a year under Biden we went from a top oil exporter to an oil importer.
When Biden was shutting down our pipelines, he reversed Trump’s ban on the Russian Nord Stream oil pipeline in exchange for nothing, except maybe the millions the wife of the Moscow mayor sent Hunter Biden.
The Biden administration brings in nearly 600,000 barrels of oil from Russia every day.
Biden’s war on our domestic energy production is paying for Putin’s war with your money.
2 – Idiotic NATO Policy is Destabilizing
Putin’s original complaint and threat to invade Ukraine is that he did not want a NATO member state on his border and did not want American strategic weapons on his border. This is Putin’s only legitimate complaint.
We threatened WWIII when Russia put missiles in Cuba. Having strategic weapons on your border is destabilizing.
3 – Top Democrats Using Corruption to Bilk Ukraine
The Unites States backed the 2014 coup in Ukraine and as a result our State Department, ran by Hillary Clinton, used it to line her pockets as did the Biden’s and that is just the tip of the corruption iceberg.
A well known example of such corruption is Viktor Pinchuk, a wealthy Eastern European oligarch who was given control of a Ukrainian state run energy company . Pinchuk in turn was a top contributor to the Clinton Foundation and was responsible for sending Hunter Biden’s “firm” $86,000 per month for doing nothing.
The video below shows Biden bragging about how he got a special prosecutor fired for investigating the corruption involving his son.
Pinchuk is also a founder of “The Atlantic Council” which has peppered American politicians with money ever since.
Polls showing that Trump and the Republicans will be swept into office in coming elections means Ukrainian corruption is certain to be revisited. If Putin sweeps away the current Ukrainian government it is likely that the evidence gets swept out with them.
Such corruption allows Putin to make a case against the current government in Ukraine as well as make false allegations that some are willing to believe because “well the government is corrupt anyways.”
4 – Failing to Learn the Lessons of History
Shortly before WWII Hitler wanted a way to bypass the defenses that the Czech’s put on their German border. Hitler sent in thugs to harass ethnic Germans who lived near the border and make the case that the Czech government was harassing Germans.
This created sympathy for his plans to annex Czech border areas known as the “Sudetenland.” A key player in appeasing Hitler’s plans to take so much of Czechoslovakia was British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain.
Putin literally calls the current government in Ukraine a Nazi regime.
When Putin engaged in these tactics there should have been aggressive international condemnation, especially from the Germans. Putin was able to get away with this because in WWII many Ukrainians sided with the German invaders – which is not a big surprise after Stalin tried to near genocide Ukrainians via starvation. Stalin literally confiscated their food. There are still pro-NAZI groups in Ukraine. They are small but get press because controversy sells.
President Obama sent Ukraine blankets and military food rations when they were invaded the first time to take Crimea province.
Present Trump sent Ukraine Javelin mobile anti-tank missiles and STINGER mobile anti-aircraft missiles.
After the invasion started Biden offered to evacuate President Zelensky from Ukraine. Zelensky refused saying “We need ammunition, not a ride.” After being globally humiliated the Biden administration has announced that they will be sending more Javelin and STINGER missiles.
Still, the Biden will not stand up to the eco-alarmists in his own party to increase domestic energy production to help out allies get a break from Russian oil.
5 – Don’t Give Up Your Nukes
Ukraine had nuclear weapons. The international community including Russia signed an agreement stating that if Ukraine gave up its nuclear weapons their borders would be respected and they would be protected. All sides of that agreement violated it. Unilateral disarmament rarely works out well. Poland and and Hungary need to nuke up now. (Note: We realize that we are in the minority in this view /shrug.)
6 – Putin Wants Ukraine’s Natural Resources
Ukraine is one of the top agricultural producers in the world. They also have oil, steel, titanium and other resources that have military purposes.
The videos below give more content on what is happening with energy policy, the European Union, the double talkers in both parties, the politicians here who have been encouraging this war and of course Vladimir Putin. We don’t agree with all of it but they provide thoughtful content.
7 – Democrats Bogus Impeachments Against Trump on Russia Hoax and Ukraine Hoax
When President Zelensky was elected in Ukraine on an anti corruption platform President Trump offered his assistance as there are many ties to American politics in that corruption. Joe Biden, John Kerry, Mitt Romney and Nancy Pelosi all have sons taking money from Ukrainian companies whose owners were donating to the Clinton Foundation .
Corruption in Ukraine have been so bad that Ukraine has actually gotten poorer in recent years in spite of having great natural resources.
The bogus impeachments over Trump/Russia and Trump/Ukraine prevented the Unites States form doing more to help Ukraine clean up its act. Putin has mentioned this corruption in his speeches as one of the reasons he is “liberating” the country.
The Amish who went to to church and ate communally, as well as cities who did not lock-down, had virtually the same outcomes as cities that locked down. Government officials, mostly Democrats, who used the virus as a power grab, to pick winners and losers were donors were deemed “essential” and those who didn’t were shut down, were wrong.
According to the most recent data, all but the best medical masks had virtually no effect. This makes sense because if the virus escaped a level four containment lab it seems foolish to believe that a piece of cloth could stop it.
The poke did not stop the spread of the virus. All it did was provide some seasonal protection against the worst symptoms much like a traditional flu shot. We find it difficult to believe that Pfizer and the lock down Democrats at the NIH and CDC did not know this from the beginning.
Why would a poke, that is much like a flu shot, not behave like a flue shot? Perhaps this is why the NiH and Pfizer are in court fighting the release of the documents regarding the testing of the poke, which belong to the American people.
Those who proved allergic to the poke had side effects from being sick to being killed from blood clots, myocarditis and pericarditis….with no legal recourse, and found themselves attacked and/or banned by far left social media for daring to report it.
Full Measure with Sharyl Attkisson:
It seems this man from almost two years ago was right:
“No Knock” warrants should be incredibly rare because so much can go wrong. People are killed by police when police enter the wrong address, they kill innocent bystanders in the house and in the case below legalized summary execution.
In general we are very supportive of the police and that said we have consistently supported police reforms such as de-escalation training.
Unfortunately the idea of “black man with a gun” conjures up a worst case scenario in the heads off too many police that leads to premature/excessive force – such as the black man who was looking a BB gun at a Wal-Mart and someone called 911 saying there was “a black man with a gun”. The police gunned him down from a distance on site.
In the case below the man was disturbed from a dead sleep. In such a case any reasonable person would believe that their home is being broken into and would arm themselves which is then used as a pretext by the SWAT team to kill the suspect. A setup. This is why evil people make “SWATting” calls.
We watch the video below and are forced to ask how this scenario was not intentional. How is this not premeditated murder.
The man in the apartment, Amir Locke, has the gun pointed at the ground with his finger extended OFF the trigger until he can assess the threat. Locke is doing exactly as any firearms instructor would train someone to do and is gunned down anyways.
Locke was not named on the search warrant, had no criminal record and had a valid gun permit.
We understand that police work is confusing and there are many times where they should get the benefit of the doubt. This is not one of those times. This shooting is not justified.
It is like they are living in an alternate universe.
The are many problems facing America. Crime gone mad, Democrats prosecutors simply refusing to so their job, corruption, ineffective government, failed public schools, inflation, Americans and allies abandoned in Afghanistan, the droning of innocent families, 200,000 people a month crossing our Southern border and more.
But Democrats are talking about the border integrity of Ukraine, the patriarchy, “democracy” – while doing all they can to rig the voting system to help incumbents, how parents are domestic terrorists and other silliness.
George Orwell called this “the pansy left” meaning that they try to make it appear like they are solving “problems” to distract from the fact they are doing nothing about genuine problems.
They wreck stuff and then ignore it.
She gets it.
When called out by the State Department AP reporter the Biden spokesman called all but accused him of being in league with Putin…..
If it is real, in spite of them saying the information has been declassified, the Biden Administration is not releasing anything and demand that we just take their word for it…a word that has no credibility.
This is just like the plan from the Biden White House to collude with the NSBA to accuse parents who opposed teaching CRT of domestic terrorism.
The reporter for the Associated Press accused them of Alex Jonesing to their face. Keep in mind that this particular AP reporter matt lee, has been covering the State Department and the diplomatic community for decades. If this were true Lee would likely have already known it.
And why is it that we should be all concerned about Ukraine’s border integrity while Democrats are doing all they can to eliminate our own?
The Democrat Governor of Illinois gave $300,000 of Covid relief funds that are supposed to help ordinary citizens to Black Lives matter.
During the Obama/Biden Administration they gave most of the “Green Energy” funding to donors who started junk bond status green energy companies who took part of the money, donated it to Democrats, kept some for themselves, and promptly went out of business.
Whoopi says that it was not about race. What? Hitler talked about the whole “master race” thing and the Nazi’s modeled their anti-Jewish code after Democrat’s Jim Crow laws.
What is it with the left pushing hostility against the Jews and even more so pushing a Black vs Jew and Black vs Asian narrative? It’s sick.
The “final solution” actually “not racist”? Really Whoopi? Just stop.
Gun registration is banned by statute. Criminals don’t register guns and history proves beyond reasonable doubt the only reason to register guns owned by good people is to make a list to confiscate/harass citizens later.
Who claims to represent the workers and protect them from oppression? Exactly. Never forget this.
PS – Communist countries destroyed the unions too, but no one on the left knows this because they are literally opposed to history.
