    Two new polls from Morning Consult and Concerned Veterans for America show at least a plurality of Americans are tired of interventionism. The results show twice as many Americans want to send less aid to Ukraine than those who would support sending more. Meanwhile, only 17% of Americans are concerned about defending democracy around the globe. ... Only 17% of respondents told the pollsters that “upholding global democracy” was a top five concern, ranking 11th behind drugs, climate, immigration, terrorism and the economic crisis. ...

We haven't done an update in regards to the Russian economy for a while now. And my question to you is has it collapsed yet? Has the Russian economy collapsed as we have been hearing? Ursula von der leyen in her State of the Union address, the EU State of the Union address thing that they do. She said, and she actually said this, that the Russians are removing chips from their dishwashers and using them in military...
  • Escalation? Putin Orders Troop Mobilization, “Not Bluffing” About Nukes?

    The White House warned that Putin is preparing for an escalation of the war in Ukraine. Putin’s calling up troops in a partial mobilization and warns that he will use all weapons at his disposal if he has to. Usually, deploying troops is not called an escalation. Using nuclear weapons obviously would be. The US likes to say they are not escalating, but they repeatedly have. Putin will replenish his forces in Ukraine with 300,000 of his two million reservists as he prepares for a referendum to allow four regions in Donbas to join the Russian Federation. Leonid Slutsky, a...

    Moscow has made a decision how to proceed in the proxy war with NATO in the Ukraine. We do not yet know what the decision is. The President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin will hold a TV speech at 8 pm Moscow time (17:00 UTC) (Since changed to 8 am Moscow time (05:00 UTC, 1 am Eastern US Time) followed by an announcement by Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu. In July Putin has held a press conference or speech where he said with regards to Ukraine something like: "We haven't even started yet." It may be that Russia will do...

    Multiple pro-Moscow officials in Ukraine on Tuesday announced their intent to stage referendums on joining Russia, including the head of the Donetsk People’s Republic Denis Pushilin, as well as the Russia-installed official over the southern Kherson region, Vladimir Saldo. “I think that people have long been waiting for a referendum here and it will probably be a political move that will help ensure the safety of civilians,” Pushillin said Tuesday. ...
  • Ukraine Is Not Fighting Russia, America Is With A Mercenary Army

    The Ukraine war is now essentially a stalemate. Yes, Ukrainian forces have had some recent success near Kharkiv, but at a high price. The brutal reality is that Russia has approximately 150M people, Ukraine has 40M. Ukraine is a border region of the Russian Federation, and very important to the Kremlin. Now that he has committed forces, Putin cannot let control of the Donbass region go, no matter the casualties. If he allowed that to happen, he would lose power. So, he will follow the old Russian tactic of throwing bodies at the conflict in a long war of attrition....
  • Ukraine's Offensives: Tactical Victories Can Contribute to Strategic Defeat

    The New Atlas ^ | September 12, 2022 | Brian Berletic
    Latest update from The New Atlas focusing on the realities of Ukraine's recent tactical victory vs. the enormous structural cost that likely leads to speeding up to Ukraine's eventual strategic failure. Ukraine lost 5-7 brigades (20,000 to 28,000 men) in just that short 10 day period of "counter offensive." Makes the interesting point that Russia's decision to withdraw eliminated Ukraine's ability to significantly reduce Russia's manpower or weaponry. By enticing Ukraine to come out of their covered defensive positions and into the open it has provided an easier target for Russia to attack by air and artillery Ukraine's stretched out...

    09/05/2022 6:04:36 PM PDT · by Navy Patriot · 158 replies
    The Russians on the "Southern Front" received large reinforcements for half a day via the Crimean bridge The elite Ukrainian units that attempted the "Kherson counter-offensive" for the past six days did not achieve anything, and they paid for that with huge casualties and losses. They briefly took over Blagodatnoe and another smaller settlement and wedged themselves into Russian positions southeast of Suho Stavok, 3-4 kilometers away, but the counterattack was so powerful that they had to return to their starting lines with two captured positions. In the last 24 hours, the Ukris had 230 casualties, and they also lost...

    After the first Ukrainian attempt to push towards had failed it is now reinforcing that failure. As I describe the move: The only 'successful' attack was across the Inhulet river near Andriivka in the direction of the dam and river crossing that closes off the Kakhovka Dnieper reservoir. The troops were cut off and mostly destroyed. On the western side of the salient a Russian unit crossed the Inhulet towards north and attacked the Ukrainians on that side. It soon had to pull back and the Ukrainians used the Russian crossing to reconnect with the cut off units in the...

    I’ve been warning about this since January 2020. Sounded crazy then. But it wasn’t. I devour history books and it’s all written over and over and over. Normalcy bias is a great killer of nations. There will be famine There will be actual pandemic There will be war There will be migrations big and small. Both personal and population-sized. Entire tribes will move, as has been happening already. Many of these Europeans and Americans will soon realize they did not just welcome in millions of individuals. They welcomed in tribes and groups that come with their own structures. These are...

    Once the full scale of Ukrainian losses in their counter offensive becomes widely known, the political divisions within the Zelensky government are likely to grow. There is a video online in Ukrainian with a Ukrianian General stating that Ukrainian losses are “hundreds of thousands.” This is a fact that will not remain hidden and will add to the turmoil swirling around Zelensky. How long will the Ukrainian people continue to support a policy where their husbands and sons are being used as cannon fodder? That is a critical indicator to monitor during September.

    Possibly 8K - 10K casualtiesMercouris reporting massive damage to ukie forces involved in the show counteroffensive. Russians apparently using Mongol tactics, retreating to lure ukies into traps and then annihilating them with artillery. One particular "mountain brigade" totally annihilated, home region holding "day of mourning"... US and UK forcing those people into this **** is beyond criminal, more like sinful, sooner or later God is going to get pissed off over it. The only ratioinal thing anybody in Ukraine could think of doing at this point is surrender, they're fighting way out of their weight division.

    A group of RINOs connected to the Bushs and Mitt Romney filed a brief in Florida requesting the judge to deny President Trump’s request to look into the FBI raid of Mar-a-Lago. FOX News reported this morning that a group of seven former prosecutors filed an amicus brief asking the Federal judge in Florida to deny President Trump’s request to look into the FBI’s illegal raid on Mar-a-Lago. Ahead of the Department of Justice’s filing Tuesday night that opposed President Trump’s call for a “special master” to review White House documents seized from his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida, seven former...

    On Monday Kash Patel, the former chief of staff to the Acting United States Secretary of Defense under President Donald Trump, joined Tucker Carlson to discuss the recent raid on Mar-a-Lago and the release of the highly redacted affidavit to raid the former president’s home. During the discussion Kash Patel told Tucker’s audience the real reason why the raid took place. It was to prevent the disclosure of unclassified Russiagate documents that implicated the FBI and DOJ in the garbage investigation of candidate and then President Trump. The FBI raided Mar-a-Lago to effectively steal the documents and prevent them from...

    In recent days, new details have emerged about the unprecedented raid on the former president’s Florida home. Mar-A-Lago, Trump’s Florida mansion, was raided by the FBI on Monday. According to reports, the raid was part of an investigation into whether Trump took classified documents from the White House and stored them at his mansion. A safe at Trump’s home was broken into by federal agents in search of documents the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) wants. There were 15 boxes of classified information seized by the agents, but they did not disclose what the boxes contained. Mulvaney, who served...

    This is a message that the p.c. crowd — in the media, in the universities – needs to hear again and again, because they don’t get it, especially when a Presidential candidate (Warren) announces “her” pronouns on the debate stage, and a teacher is fired for not using the student’s preferred pronouns. It is not enough, the argument goes, to have pronouns of two genders, when there are so many other genders. We need more pronouns! Can’t keep up Along with pronoun enforcement, duplicitous, contemptible euphemisms, another key element of politically correct language, continue to proliferate. I can’t keep up.

    The war in Ukraine is in its sixth month, and there’s no end in sight. Here’s what we know… Almost everything you heard about the war in Ukraine from U.S. media over the course of March, April and May was a lie. You heard that Putin was losing the war. You heard that Russians had poor training and low morale and were deserting in droves. You heard that Ukrainians were destroying Russian armor in large numbers to blunt the Russian advance. None of this was true. In fact, Russian troops have achieved major victories in Mariupol, Kherson, Severodonetsk, Lysychansk and...
