Hold on folks, the goal is precisely that: to stalemate Russia indefinitely, keeping Putin mired in a never-ending war. This is to support the ultimate goal of regime-changing Putin, and Biden already spilled the beans on that a couple of months ago, while we also have already had the clear admission from SecDef that the goal was to weaken Russia. Of course, Putin is smart enough to know that this is the game and he will not allow it to go this way.
When the goals of Russia’s current operation are achieved, he will probably give the Ukies and US-NATO at least a little chance to cease and desist hostilities, to accede to all of Russia’s demands on the Zelensky-US-puppet government, but if they do not yield, especially if Zelensky is pushed to retake Donbas, Crimea, and other regions secured by Russia’s first op, then Putin will finish the job with an all-out takeover of Ukraine. Guaran-damn-teed!
We can assume that US politicians are salivating in expectations of the kickbacks they will reap from the $40 Billion-dollar donations from defense contractors, etc, referred-to as the Small Taters aspect. Due to pressure from Russia, China, Middle East, etc., etc., the US Dollar has been tottering as the world reserve currency, and pushed to the brink by the hyperinflation caused by US fiscal and monetary profligacy. Wars after all, trigger flight of money to “safe havens” (ie “safe” compared to other options).
Since at least WWII, this has meant the US dollar and dollar-denominated assets/commodities has often disappeared to pastures new and unrecoverable – except of course, for those hiding within the bubble.
Perpetual war in Ukraine props up the dollar and secures its role as the reserve currency, putting off the day of reckoning. Huge political advantages for individual pols and the US debt-conomy; huge potential profits for the elite money jugglers (and/or avoidance of losses). That’s the Big Taters.
But wait – the “grift” must flow. How else for the American Empire to function if it cannot launder its stolen money and engage in its evil experiments if not through another captured and corrupt country? One has to wonder for instance, just how a war torn country such as the Ukraine – which is still hot – is so darned dangerous for its own citizens that Hollyweirdos, communists from our own government, and others such as these can travel there without regard to their own safety or legerdemain. McConnell damn we the people trip. Very curious, I must say.
Sundance, Conservative Treehouse: Rep Senate Leadership travel to Kyiv Ukraine to inspect Treasury … (Damn We the People!)
Comrade taxpayers, as the glorious and esteemed senate move through the procedural hurdles to pass a massive $40 billion spending bill for the U.S. altruistic Ukraine money laundering operation, a fabulous diplomatic envoy consisting of Mitch McConnell, John Barrasso, John Cornyn and Susan Collins travel to Kyiv to meet the magnanimous defender of the international treasury and wealth transfer operation, Volodymyr Zelenskyy.
The magnificent republican leaders went to visit the nicest war zone their bipartisan efforts have created in the past four decades. As the angels of abundance parted the clouds, many congratulations were shared from the delegation toward their generous host and the expressions of appreciation and respect for the generosity were reciprocated.
No U.S. border security, no gas money, no grocery money, no infant formula, no voting integrity…. Meh, no problem comrades. We’ve got Ukrainians to support. We are paying the pensions and benefits of Ukraine government officials and Ukraine citizens.
Keep in mind, the politicians are not tone deaf, out of touch or disconnected; they simply do not care. We The People are irrelevant to them.
We are in an abusive relationship with our own government. [end]
Also Sundance, Conservative Treehouse: ‘Pentagon Testified Assessing Ukraine and No One Noticed’ …
As we contemplate the massive $40 billion transfer of U.S. taxpayer funds to Ukraine, a few things need to be emphasized.
First, congress has decided to pay the salaries, benefits and pensions of Ukraine political officials and citizens. As U.S. citizens try and figure out how to afford housing, gasoline, food and basic goods, congress has decided to subsidize another country. That’s the first point.
Second, as to the pragmatic question of “to what end?” There was a critical point made last week by Defense Intel Agency (DIA) Director Lt. Gen. Scott Berrier, that not a single media outlet or politician discussed. During his briefing to the Senate Armed Services Committee, Berrier was asked “can Ukraine win” the conflict against Russia?
Lt. General Berrier replied: “That is a difficult predication to make. I think where the assessment is at, is a prolonged stalemate should no factor change on either side. In other words, the Russians continue to do what they’re doing, and we continue to do what we are doing for the Ukranians.”
The Pentagon assessment is the best that can be achieved is a stalemate. Billions of billions of dollars being poured into Ukraine, and the most likely outcome is a stalemate. More people killed, an endless need for continued money to be poured into the ‘war’, and the best possible outcome is a stalemate.
So, riddle me this, why isn’t the U.S. policy position advocating for Zelenskyy and Putin to enter negotiations for a resolution? [end]

To be honest, yours truly has always had difficulty believing that Russia could possibly lose any war or conflict with Ukraine. One would have to believe that Russia has no military might whatsoever in comparison with a country the size of “the” Ukraine. That they have no nuke subs, no aircraft, no bombs of any power and are woke idiots like the demoMarxocrats in America. Have the people of the world lost their collective minds?
Fact of the matter is that the Russians are fighting in Ukraine against United States technology and weapons. But this is not about Ukraine. It’s about US dollar reserve and Western economics. Pure and simple. The United States is the guardian of the fiat (debt=money) racket. That theft system goes down and all government hegemony disappears.
At one time, money represented the true value of goods and services. Not any more. Money is determined by how much those in power create and place into circulation. Ergo, the racketeers in power determine the value of our money. Whether it’s McConnell or Pelosi, the Uni-Party career politicians (criminals!), will have their hands out for the 10% kickback that Biden was getting.
Flexibility is the key to political power and the last thing anyone wants is for the whole thing to be revealed for what it is. Why else would Uniparty members visit Zelensky in the middle of a ‘terrible conflict’?; Because some ‘instructions’ and ‘assurances’ are better conveyed in person when you no longer have Embassy personnel to ‘backchannel’. McConnell damn we the people trip. That’s why!
And on that note, time for today’s MAGA Pill – Still our President Donald John Trump doing has darnedest to MAGA! KAG!
