Putin shut down a power grid last month. This is why we need NSA and CISA.
Imagine going without power for 6 hours in the dead of winter, 2 days before Christmas, because some foreign power wanted to poke at your country. That’s what Putin’s minions did to 8,000 folks in Ukraine on December 23 last month, and if you think American energy firms, living fat and happy on local monopolies, are better equipped to fight these attacks… hahahahaha.
Marco Rubio is right. Rand Paul seeks to weaken a nation.
We all love to look at the Clinton Foundation’s donors. Even Rand Paul says that foreign donations are thinly-veiled bribes to the Clintons. So why don’t we look at the donations going to Ron Paul, which he is hiding from public scrutiny? Given that the elder Paul has been defending Russia, don’t we have to question just why this is, and just how much money is | Read More »
Obama administration thinks Putin isn’t all that bright
Under the Obama administration we’ve seen American foreign policy reduced to internet trolling. The State Department opposed Russian adventurism in Ukraine with a Twitter campaign: The administration reacted to the mass kidnapping and sexual enslavement of young girls in Nigeria with a Twitter campaign (I have to admit that she looks scary enough for many to consider releasing their sex slaves and laying down their | Read More »

Has Vladimir Putin scored an “own-goal?”
As the old song goes, “you got to know when to hold ’em and know when to fold ’em.” Vladimir Putin should have heeded that advice but as it often is with megalomaniacs they usually lack the self restraint needed to quit while they are ahead. While the West seemed content to let Putin carve Crimea out of Ukraine via a referendum that would have | Read More »
Has Russia invaded? Ukraine enters a critical state
The situation in Ukraine is entering a critical phase. As Russian troops mass on the border with Ukraine and a bogus “humanitarian” convoy has moved towards Ukraine from Russia. Tonight there are reports that a Russian armored column has crossed the Russo-Ukraine frontier. A column of Russian armored personnel carriers (APCs) has reportedly crossed Russia’s border with Ukraine. The APCs had earlier been seen traveling alongside a | Read More »
When the Russians invade Ukraine, our response is…FAIL
Just when you think things might calm down in Ukraine, they heat right back up. Putin is sending an aid convoy into Donetsk. This might be a pretext for an invasion, and as usual, we are left flat-footed with no idea what Russia will do, and no response prepared if they do it.

Putin’s Potemkin rebellion in Ukraine
When Moscow’s tool, Ukraine President Viktor Yanukovych, was deposed by a popular uprising because of his policy of turning Ukraine into a Russian client state when the people wanted a closer association with the European Union, an insurgency developed in Eastern Ukraine. That region is economically depressed and heavily populated by ethnic Russians, these Russians saw an Anschluss with Russia as their best hope for | Read More »
US and EU impose new sanctions on Russia.
The smart set running what passes for diplomacy in US and the EU have released a new array of sanctions against Russia. These are a belated response to Russia’s fomenting a bloody civil war in Ukraine but in reality were only brought on by Russian armed, Russian trained, and Russian led ‘separatists’ shooting down a Malaysia Air passenger jet. In a press conference at the | Read More »
Russian involvement in Ukraine deepens
In the week after a Russian built, Russian commanded, and probably Russian operated anti-aircraft missile knocked a Malaysia Air plane from the skies over Ukraine, Russia has shown no signs of letting the stigma of slaughtering innocents deter them from their mission of carving up Ukraine. In fact, they have doubled down. Russian military forces have fired artillery rounds into eastern Ukraine targeting Ukrainian military | Read More »
Ron Paul, Rand Paul, and the probable Russian shooting of MH17
With Rand Paul almost certainly running for President, it’s very important we evaluate just what his views are on the issues of the day, and what influences shape what his gut instincts are, which will shape his reactions to the unforeseen issues that crop up during any Presidency.
Given the younger Paul’s constant support of his father’s candidacies, and his currying of favor from his father’s supporters, this means we must continue to look at what Ron Paul says, and look to Rand Paul to support or deny those remarks.

The Korean Air Flight vs. The Malaysian Air Flight
President Obama spoke for 38 or so seconds yesterday after learning that a Malaysian Air flight had been shot down over Ukraine. In the process, he said in those 38 seconds that a plane falling from the sky “may be” a tragedy. Conservatives were quick to point out Ronald Reagan’s response to the Korean Air 007 flight in 1983. The shoot down was September 1, | Read More »
Barack Obama On A Shot Down Plane Vs. Ronald Reagan
People say the meanest things about Our Glorious Lead, Oops I mean President Barack Obama. They accuse him of golfing too much and caring too little. Some have even suggested that he has checked out 2 ½ years before he’s supposed to relinquish the Presidency. Today he had a chance to change all that. A Malaysian Airliner was shot down over Ukrainian airspace and it | Read More »
