  • Nikki Haley: “A win for Ukraine is a win for all of us.”

    06/05/2023 9:40:31 AM PDT · by Enlightened1 · 82 replies
    In case you missed it here is a video (see link below) of Nikki Haley making the case for war in Ukraine. She says it's a war about "freedom", and Russia is the agressor. Nikki says going to war against Russia is to prevent war. Claims if Ukrain loses, then we are all looking at a world war, but does not explain how? Nikki did not address what is the imminent national security threat to the United States. What does U.S. victory look like? How does Nikki plan to pay for this war given the fact we 31 Trillion dollars...

    Republican presidential hopeful Nikki Haley, U.N. ambassador under former President Donald Trump, went after her ex-boss and 2024 rival Ron DeSantis on Sunday over their refusal to say whether they want Ukraine to win its war against Russia. In recent town hall events, Trump, the favorite for the Republican presidential nomination, said that he wanted the war to end, but that he would help Ukraine and Russia negotiate a settlement. Florida Governor DeSantis, Trump's nearest rival for the Republican nomination, said recently that he supports a settlement to the war, and that he hopes fighting will end by the time...

    This list only includes destroyed vehicles and equipment of which photo or videographic evidence is available. Therefore, the amount of equipment destroyed is significantly higher than recorded here. Small arms, ATGMs, MANPADS, loitering munitions, drones used as unmanned bait, civilian vehicles, trailers and derelict equipment are not included in this list. All possible effort has gone into avoiding duplicate entries and discerning the status of equipment between captured or abandoned. Many of the entries listed as 'abandoned' will likely end up captured or destroyed. Similarly, some of the captured equipment might be destroyed if it can't be recovered. When the...
  • John Bolton fears Trump indictment will act as accelerant on his campaign: 'Rocket fuel'. Bolton argued Trump is a 'cancer on the Republican Party' (friendless RINO alert)

    Former national security adviser John Bolton argued that the indictment of Donald Trump may ultimately help the former president politically, saying it could be "rocket fuel" that helps him secure the Republican nomination. "I'm not worried about Alvin Bragg hurting Donald Trump. I'm worried about Alvin Bragg benefiting Donald Trump," Bolton said during a Sunday "Face the Nation" appearance on CBS. "If Trump is acquitted or he gets the case dismissed because it's not legally sufficient… that will be rocket fuel because he can say, ‘I told you this was a political prosecution.’" Bolton, who served in the Trump administration...

    Max Boot, one of the most bloodthirsty American analysts and commentators, has apparently woken up long after most Americans with half his education, about the limits of American power and the disastrous wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. Thankfully for us, he has penned his reawakening in the pages of Foreign Affairs, that astute bulwark of the establishment, a journal of which I am, in fact, a subscriber.For 20 years, Boot has been calling for regime change, democracy building abroad, and even leaving American troops in dangerous brushfire to “polic[e] the frontiers of the Pax Americana.” Now, he says he’s changed......Boot’s...

    From the start of the war in Ukraine, the US media continuously claimed "the international community" is united behind the US (that phrase always means: W. Europe and whatever countries happen to side with the US). Today, the NYT recognizes the truth: A couple of key paragraphs from the NYT story that deflates and debunks the inspiring and from-the-start obviously false fairy tale that "the international community" was united with the US in support of Ukraine: *** The WashPost has a very similar concession this morning.

    Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) said the hard-line opponents to House GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy (Calif.) becoming the next Speaker “are enemies now.” Crenshaw told CNN’s Manu Raju on Tuesday ahead of the Speakership vote that those dug in against McCarthy will “obviously” not get the committee assignments they want over their defiance, but “it’s going to be so much worse than that.” “They are enemies now,” he said. “They have made it clear that they prefer a Democrat agenda than a Republican one.” Crenshaw earlier on Tuesday dismissed the idea that opponents to McCarthy had a viable alternative who could...

    Former national security adviser John Bolton said he will “seriously consider” challenging former President Trump for the GOP’s presidential nomination in 2024 if other GOP candidates don’t step in and stop him from winning again. Bolton said: “We’ve got perhaps a dozen or more potential presidential candidates looking to 2024. I think every one of them, before they declare their candidacy, should say, ‘Donald Trump was wrong. We repudiate him. He doesn’t belong in the Republican Party.’ “And, honestly, if they don’t, there’s one thing that would get me to get into the presidential race, which I looked at in...

    Institute for Peace & Diplomacy ^ | June 27, 2022 | Christopher Mott
    The rise of a ‘woke’ activist-driven, social justice-oriented politics—particularly among the members of academia, media, and the professional managerial class—has provided the latest ideological justification for interventionism, and it has become readily adopted by the U.S. foreign policy establishment. These groups now have an even greater level of symbiotic relationship with state actors. Professional selection and advancement under these conditions require elite signaling of loyalty to ‘progressive’ universalism as the trending state-sanctioned ideology, which further fuels the push towards interventionism. This combination of factors encourages a new institutional and elite consensus around trending shibboleths.

    Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming has hit out at House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy's suggestion that a Republican-led House might block military aid to Ukraine, describing the idea as "disgraceful." Cheney, the vice chair of the January 6 select committee, made the remark on Tuesday while taking questions at an event at the Harvard Institute of Politics. The Republican congresswoman was asked by a student whether the U.S. could "credibly promote and support democracy" around the world when it's "falling apart" in this country. In response, Cheney, one of the most vocal Donald Trump critics in the GOP, said first...

    Western officials are engaged in “prudent planning” behind the scenes to prevent chaos and panic in their home countries in the event Russia was to detonate a nuclear bomb in or near Ukraine. Although a nuclear crisis is considered highly unlikely, the insider said officials internationally were re-examining plans to provide emergency support and reassurance to populations fearful of nuclear escalation. Hints of the thinking emerged in a briefing by an official on Friday, who was asked if there would be measures in place to prevent panic buying or people fleeing cities en masse in fear of escalation after a...

    NATO will closely monitor Russia's upcoming nuclear exercise but not be cowed into dropping support for Ukraine by Moscow's veiled nuclear threats, the alliance's chief said on Thursday. "We will not be intimidated," NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg told reporters after a two-day meeting of the alliance's defense ministers. "Russia's nuclear rhetoric is dangerous, reckless, and they know that if they use (a) nuclear weapon against Ukraine, it will have severe consequences." The meeting was the first large NATO gathering since Moscow announced it would annex several Ukrainian territories, began a partial mobilization and issued veiled nuclear threats, moves NATO has...

At one of the hostels, all guests eligible for military conscription were rounded up and sent to an enlistment center where men with prior military experience had their passports confiscated and were ordered to report back with their belongings...

While Cheney lost her House primary to the former president’s endorsed candidate last month, her break with the MAGA wing of the GOP has made her the leader of the anti-Trump movement among Republicans and beyond.
