  • Conservatives, Stop Falling in Love with Politicians

    You gotta hand it to conservatives – we get abused and dumped and generally treated like dishrags, but we never stop falling for the latest politician who is going to sweep us off our feet and make sweet, sweet political love to us. Yet maybe, instead of acting on our infatuations, we should be players instead of getting played. Maybe we should banish the starry-eyed romanticism, stop scratching "Cons + Pol" surrounded by little hearts in our Pee-Chee folders and start, as noted political theorist Sir Mix-A-Lot observed in his renowned treatise "Baby Got Back," to "hit it and quit...

    When reflecting on European sanctions against Russia, Hungary's Prime Minister Viktor Orban said they only work on paper, noting that those who impose a continental blockade usually fail. The European Union is abusing its power and forces an alien culture and ideology upon Hungary, the nation's Prime Minister Viktor Orban said on Monday. "However, we still do not let migrants in, we do not give permission for gender ideologies and we do not accept economic measures that would destroy Hungarian families," the prime minister stressed. Brussels is also reducing individual bloc member's powers, Orban continued. He also took a dig...

    A referendum on joining the Russian Federation will be held in the breakaway Georgian South Ossetia region. The office of the head of the region, Anatoly Bibilov, said a similar decree was signed on Friday. The Supreme Court in the capital, Tskhinvali, agreed and decided to hold the referendum on July 17, according to Russia’s state agency TASS. By arranging the referendum, Bibilo explained, he was responding to the “historical aspirations” of the people of South Ossetia. “We are coming home,” the president of South Ossetia later wrote in the Telegram messenger service, with the goal of possible joining the...

    @ChadPergram 1) Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and 3 GOP senators just met Zelenskyy in Kyiv. Also there: John Barrasso (R-WY) Susan Collins (R-ME) John Cornyn (R-TX) 2) Note this comes as the Senate is trying to align with the House and approve $40 billion in Ukraine assistance. There is a procedural vote Monday night to break a filibuster. Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky) is singled-handedly holding this up. 3) If Paul sticks to his guns, it may take the Senate until the end of next week to approve the bill. Paul wants an inspector general to oversee the money...
  • Empire of Bioweapon Lies

    ... The provisional results of evidence being collected about the work of U.S. bioweapons in Ukraine are simply astonishing. These are the main takeaways. 1. U.S. bioweapon ideologues comprise the leadership of the Democratic Party. By linking with non-governmental biotechnology organizations, using the investment funds of the Clintons, Rockefellers, Soros and Biden, they profited from additional campaign financing – all duly concealed. In parallel, they assembled the legislative basis for financing the bioweapons program directly from the federal budget. 2. COVID-19 vaccine manufacturers Pfizer and Moderna, as well as Merck and Gilead – of Donald “known unknowns” fame, and affiliated...

    KYIV — The front lines in the Ukraine war had shifted on Sunday as Russia made some advances in the fiercely contested eastern Donbas region and the Ukrainian military waged a counteroffensive near the strategic Russian-held city of Izium. ….snip Keeping up pressure on Izium and Russian supply lines will make it harder for Moscow to encircle battle-hardened Ukrainian troops on the eastern front in the Donbas. Izium straddles the Donets river, about 120 km (75 miles) from Kharkiv on the main highway heading southeast. “The hottest spot remains the Izium direction,” regional governor Oleh Sinegubov said in comments aired...

    Residents of rural Conklin, New York were stunned Saturday by the news the gunman accused in the Buffalo supermarket attack was a teenager who lived in their town. Payton Gendron, 18, allegedly drove his parents’ car over 200 miles from Conklin to Buffalo Saturday to massacre 10 people in a racially motivated mass shooting he live-streamed on Twitch. Conklin is a sleepy community of about 5,000 people on the Susquehanna River just north of the Pennsylvania border in Broome County and 10 miles south of Binghamton. The population is 95.7 percent white, according to Census estimates. Photos from the shooter...

    More and more the United States views Russia’s war on Ukraine as a pivotal episode in a global contest that pits Washington not only against Moscow but against a group of active adversaries – with China at the group’s core. At a briefing convened by the US Senate’s Armed Services Committee last week, China shared top billing with Russia and the conflict in Ukraine as a talking point. In particular, attention centered on China’s military plans vis-a-vis a possible takeover of Taiwan. The two top intelligence agency heads – civilian and military – put China atop a list of four...

    House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-Md., on Friday slammed Republicans for criticizing President Biden when "we’re at war." Hoyer, the second-highest-ranking House Democrat made the inflammatory statement while debating on the House floor, pushing back on Republicans’ pointing out Biden has "clamped down" on producing energy domestically. "It is unfortunate that in a time of war, that we spend all the time blaming our own president," Hoyer continued. "It is unfortunate that when the Europeans put themselves over the objections of numerous administrations in a place where they had a dependence on Russia, Russia has no leverage over us."

    CLAIM: House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD) claimed on Friday that America is at war with Russia and therefore needs to “produce energy.” VERDICT: False. Congress has not declared war against Russia, nor has President Joe Biden engaged combat troops with Russia. Hoyer took to the House floor, disputing the Republican claim that the Biden administration has “clamped down” on domestic energy production. “The Biden administration approved more drilling permits in 2021 than the Trump administration approved in the first three years they were in office. I don’t know how the [Republican leader] rationalizes his comments about the Biden constricting...

    On May 12th, the United States Senate sought to unanimously pass a $40-billion-dollar aid package that would have funded Ukraine because of their ongoing war with the country of war. Unfortunately, the House of Representatives had already resoundingly passed the bill, with only 57 Republicans voting against it. The vote was met with extreme criticism by most conservatives, as the senate prepared the legislation before many legislative offices were even able to understand exactly where the funding was coming from. It seemed that Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and Majority Leader Chuck Schumer thought this would be an issue both parties...

  • The Turkish drones winning the Ukraine war

    05/12/2022 4:49:19 AM PDT · by FarCenter · 4 replies
    Few modern weapons have reached the iconic status of Turkey’s Bayraktar TB2 drone. Grainy footage from the drone’s cameras showing hapless targets in Syria, Nagorno-Karabakh and Ukraine war zones being blown up by its laser-guided bombs have cemented its reputation as a highly effective, lethal weapon. The drone first gained international attention during 2020 Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, where Azerbaijan’s TB2 fleet was crucial in determining the outcome of the war. Azerbaijan’s modernized armed forces used the TB2 to great effect against the Armenians, who attempted to re-use the tactics, techniques and procedures that won conflicts in 1994. More recently, TB2 has...

    Wrecked Russian fighter jets are being found with rudimentary GPS receivers "taped to the dashboards" in Ukraine because their inbuilt navigation systems are so bad, the UK's defense secretary, Ben Wallace, said. Speaking at the National Army Museum in London, Wallace commemorated those who died in World War II and called Russia's invasion of Ukraine "senseless and self-defeating." He added there was evidence suggesting Russian military hardware was being pushed to breaking point by the invasion. "'GPS' receivers have been found taped to the dashboards of downed Russian Su-34s so pilots knew where they were, due to poor quality of...
