In the immortal words of a wannabe dictator: “JOE BIDEN, 23 JANUARY 2018: And that is I’m desperately concerned about the backsliding on the part of Kiev in terms of corruption … And so I got Ukraine. And I remember going over, convincing our team, our leaders to – convincing that we should be providing for loan guarantees … And I went over, I guess, the 12th, 13th time to Kiev. And I was supposed to announce that there was another billion-dollar loan guarantee. And I had gotten a commitment from Poroshenko and from Yatsenyuk that they would take action against the state prosecutor. And they didn’t … I looked at them and said: I’m leaving in six hours. If the prosecutor is not fired, you’re not getting the money. Well, son of a bitch. (Laughter.) He got fired. And they put in place someone who was solid at the time.”
Mmmmmm … suffice to say that “the guy in place” and “someone who is solid at the time” is none other than – gulp! – one Vladimir Putin. Attached to which, the blame ultimately for all of this, should be laid at the feet of those Americans-in-name-only – aka demoMarxocrat Leftists – who stupidly voted for an incompetent, corrupt, lying, hack politician who clearly displayed signs of early dementia, who over the past year has become severely incapacitated and brutally insane. Well done village idiots, you’ve only yourselves to blame.
Dementia-Joe’s goal, first last and always, has been / is to destroy America for that digital, one-world government where Russian, Chinese, and a whole other slew of anti-American leaders are already jockeying for power. What could be more downright disgusting than for the Faux-American Fake President to make us dependent on Russia for our energy resources – when we have more than enough of our own that dementia village idiot wrote off as his first action – yes, canning both the Border Wall and the Keystone XL pipeline so that Putin can withdraw those resources to make Americans suffer.
As Rich Lowry expressed it in the link down below: “Biden arrived in office with the Southern border secure and Afghanistan in a state of fragile equilibrium. Eight months later, the border continues to be deluged with migrants overwhelming our capacity to properly house and process them, and we are evacuating our personnel from a Kabul International Airport overrun by desperate Afghans fleeing the Taliban.”
“The crisis at the border and the stunningly swift defeat in Afghanistan are entirely on Biden. He took sustainable situations and overturned them out of ideological fixity and wishful thinking. The outcomes were utterly predictable. Indeed, anyone who knew anything about the border or Afghanistan warned what would happen.”
Joseph Klein, FrontPageMag: ‘Kremlin Invades Ukraine’ …
Putin warns the U.S. not to intervene. It’s official. The oft-repeated warning from the Biden administration that a Russian invasion of Ukraine was imminent has come to pass.
On February 21st, Russian President Vladimir Putin sent so-called “peace-keeping” forces across Russia’s border with Ukraine into two eastern Ukrainian provinces, Donetsk and Luhansk, in the Donbass region. These provinces have been controlled by Russian-leaning Ukrainian separatists who have served as Russia’s proxies since 2014. However, to the rest of the world they are still considered within Ukraine’s internationally recognized borders.
Putin’s initial move in invading Ukraine followed his unilateral recognition of the ““independence” of areas of the Donetsk and Luhansk regions. United Nations Secretary General Antonio Guterres denounced this decree as “a violation of the territorial integrity and sovereignty of Ukraine and inconsistent with the principles of the Charter of the United Nations.”
But Putin could not care less what the UN Secretary General or the international community as a whole thinks. In his blistering speech on February 21st, the Russian president claimed that all of Ukraine belongs to Russia and should never have been created as a separate country in the first place. [-]
[+] … The White House issued a statement Wednesday night condemning Russia’s “unprovoked and unjustified attack on Ukraine” and warning Russia of severe consequences. But this rhetoric is simply more of the same. Putin has a clear end game in mind:
He wants to take over all of Ukraine and is intent on achieving his objective on his own timetable. And he is very much willing to watch the Russian people suffer as he tries to restore several parts of the former Russian empire. Biden is merely reactive and playing with a very weak hand. [-]
[+] … The sanctions imposed so far, and the threat of tougher sanctions to come, are obviously not deterring Putin as he proceeds with his extensive attacks on Ukraine. Putin has China to back up the Russian economy with purchases of Russian oil, technology exports, and financial assistance. Moreover, oil prices remain high while Europe and the U.S. remain dependent on Russian energy resources. Russia’s coffers are filling up with revenues to pay for Putin’s pursuit of his territorial ambitions.
Putin is ready to retaliate against sanctions by shutting off the supply of oil and natural gas from Russia to the U.S. and Europe, upon which they have become so dependent. Putin’s arsenal also includes potential cyberattacks against key U.S. and European infrastructure facilities.
President Biden expects that the American people will bear “costs” in defending Ukraine’s “freedom.” Many Americans are not eager to make such sacrifices, especially after Biden has already managed to impose significant costs on the American people all by himself. [end]

More Rich Lowry: “It’s a particularly galling Biden rhetorical move to use the catastrophic failure of the Afghan forces that he helped bring about to insist that his decision to leave was the only responsible one. He has gone from claiming we could safely leave because the Afghan security forces would do just fine on their own, to arguing we had no choice but to get out because they couldn’t manage without us.”
“Both at the border and in Afghanistan, Biden merely had to keep in place what he inherited to sustain success or at least avoid disaster. On the border, Trump’s pandemic-era controls and his agreements with Mexico and Central-American countries were sensible and tested. Afghanistan was more difficult, but with some determination and finesse, Biden could have maintained the minimal US commitment that had forestalled a Taliban takeover for years.” [end]
Village idiot entangled with reality.
And on that note, time for today’s MAGA Pill – Warrior-still-President Donald John Trump doing all he can to uphold the Constitutional Republic of the United States of America and get it out of the hands of despots the likes of cognitive dissident dementia-riven cellar-dwellers the likes of LGB and his ilk – MAGA! KAG!
