Biden: Too Bad To Be True

“Democrats play the perception game. They believe everything works or exists according to their perception.  But it requires belief, or actually “the willing suspension of disbelief.”

The Left’s perception, and Joe Biden’s in particular, is completely opposite of reality.

“The trouble with our Liberal friends is not that they’re ignorant; it’s just that they know so much that isn’t so.” — Ronald Reagan

Therefore, it is their Crazy Perception Theory. (critical perception theory) CPT. Just a few mental memories for starters:

 

  • There is no inflation.
  • This is not a recession.
  • Our democracy is under threat.
  • Republicans threaten our democracy.
  • MAGA are violent.
  • There is no border crisis.
  • The southern border is secure and closed.
  • Spending more money helps reduce inflation.
  • MAGA are racist extremists.
  • Concerned parents are domestic terrorists who deserve Patriot Act enforcement.
  • China is not a threat to the US.
  • Joe Biden is uniting the country.
  • “I said I’d always give it to you straight”
  • Americans won’t be forced to take a coronavirus vaccine
  • It is a pandemic of the unvaccinated.
  • “We received news our economy had 0% inflation in…. July. Zero percent.”
  • “You’re not going to get COVID if you have these vaccinations.”.
  • Joe Biden cut the deficit.
  • “We have never walked away from core beliefs & promises that define this nation.”
  • ‘We Have to Go Spend Money to Keep From Going Bankrupt’ – Biden 2009.
  • I don’t believe Putin made the final decision to invade Ukraine.
  • The Taliban is not taking over Afghanistan in days.
  • “No one said that to me that I can recall.” (warnings about pullout)
  • “The intelligence community did not say, back in June or July, that in fact this was going to collapse like it did,”
  • The Afghanistan pullout will not resemble Saigon, Vietnam in any way.
  • “But let me be clear, any American who wants to come home, we will get you home.”
  • Biden said US democracy cannot survive threat of MAGA Republicans.
  • Biden never spoke to Hunter about his business dealings.
  • “I have not taken a penny from any foreign source ever in my life”
  • Joe’s decision to run was based on white supremacy.
  • MAGA are semi-fascists.
  • Biden never called for defunding police.
  • Inflation was caused by Putin — Putin’s price hikes.
  • Biden is not against fossil fuels or for ending fracking.
  • Biden is increasing the energy supply.
  • Climate change is our greatest national threat.
  • Joe Biden did not have anything to do with the coup against Trump.
  • The administration is not pressuring tech companies against their opponents.
  • Department of Misinformation is not going to censor people.
  • No one making under 400,000 dollars will pay a penny more in taxes.
  • IRS tax agents will not be auditing middle/low income people.
  • The Inflation Reduction Act reduces inflation.
  • Biden was not silent on violence in 2020.
  • Biden did not tell illegals to come.
  • Joe will only tell us the truth.
  • Illegals are not just walking across the border.
  • We are not restricting oil drilling or oil companies.
  • There is no energy crisis.
  • There is no supply chain crisis.
  • There is no Critical Race Theory.
  • And CRT is not being taught in schools.
  • Transgendering children and minors is gender affirmation.
  • “I also have a belief that we need to look forward, as opposed to looking backwards.”

 

That’s a sampler that could go on and on. Like Biden did not know anything about the raid at Mar-a-Lago. Merrick Garland did not sign that warrant, until “yes I did sign it.” Joe Biden said he will never use the Justice Department to go after his political opponents.

This perception game got old when he first started using it — when he began running. Now it is nothing more than twisted lies, and lies built upon lies. It’s crazy perception theories.

 

Now a word from Twitter: (see the 2nd one)

8 million dollars = the amount it costs to get Biden to and from Delaware for a year
(must be the world’s most expensive commute.)

3 = the number of days Joe Biden spends per week at the White House.

What Is Really Behind The Climate Agenda?

Cause and effect. A very good description of what is going on and what is at stake — everything.

PA Pundits - International

By Bonner Cohen, Ph.D. and Dr. Jay Lehr~

Noah Harari, a futurist advisor to the World Economic Forum (WEF), told the forum that they must become the majority and leave the rest behind. He was saying we don’t need regular folks. We don’t need carpenters, plumbers, hairdressers, mechanics automobile workers, farmers and ranchers. They are all lesser lights. What we want to accomplish on this planet is all for us, Harari was saying.

For the WEF and other related organizations making this statement was actually acknowledging the globalist elites desire to activate Eugenics. It was introduced in the latter part of the 19th century and early part of the 20th century in Russia where all science that did not fit their desired narrative was rejected. In the end it set back Russia for decades. It is happening here in the US and will likely have the same result setting…

“Inflation Reduction” Act Will Hinder EV Growth

And all you heard was it (IRA) was all about green technology. Well….

PA Pundits - International

By Ronald Stein ~

After his mandate to transition to electric vehicles (EVs), President Joe Biden then signed The Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) that requires EVs to contain a battery pack and other parts built in North America with minerals mined or recycled in America. With the chance of strip mining for lithium in America being slim to nil, no EVs will qualify for the tax credits in the IRA.

Biden’s goal of 50% EV sales by 2030 will test lithium supply chains and the economic strength of the American society to meet those projections without any subsidies to procure those vehicles.

While the race is on to produce more lithium in the United States as the supply chain for the major component of EV batteries, lithium, is already being compromised internationally. The following international dark clouds on the lithium supply chain may be a prelude to an American rejection…

Don’t Look Now, PA Doing It Again: early bird call.

Okay, so there is still time before midterm elections and this is only speculation based on some early polls. It looks like the PA goose is cooked. I’ll make the call, hope I’m wrong.

Pennsylvania appears poised to elect ‘Feta-cheese Al Creepo’ as the new, most prominent socialist and Marxist/commie in the Senate. (or Socialist El Capo, if you prefer)  Congratulations PA, the jokes on you. You will be stuck with Fetterman and Casey.

Sadly so will the country be, to some extent. Seems PA just cannot say no to him.

Five Thirty-Eight has him up by 11 points over Dr Oz.
A Survey Monkey poll has Fetterman at 47% and Oz at 30%.
Even BuzzFeed says Fetterman is having fun trolling his way to a Senate seat.
(this is all after Fetterman had a stroke, with limited campaigning)

Now I know, don’t believe and rely on the polls! But there is the 2020 election where PA went for Biden. Just the fact Fetterman is up by that much in polls should be alarming. We know what he is, all that remains is to haggle the price. (as they say) Never had a real job, yet he’s a died in the wool socialist — at best. Commie is far more accurate.

We saw the direction PA went in 2020, notwithstanding disputes. But no relief.

Fetterman is running to the left of Bernie, and probably a lot more militant. Once in, they will not be able to force him out. So I’d say PA is gone to the dark side. It really is a shame. From such high hopes to no hope.

I lost most of any confidence I had in PA back in 2020. It showed America who they were. Only now, they are going to try to blame Trump, his supporters or some other force for losing and electing Fetterman. But no, it is PA that did this, just like it was in 2020.

Don’t blame Republicans for your loss in PA. It is not Dr Mehmet Oz or Trump’s fault. Dr Oz made some minor strategic errors, which is expected. But Fetterman?

And by the way, Republicans need to make a new ’24 roadmap that does not include PA because that is just reality. We can’t depend on them. Once your state goes for someone like Fetterman, well, game over. Nothing good will ever come of that.

It really irritates me to say it but that is my hunch. I do hope I am wrong in the end. But my confidence in PA left the station in 2020 and there is no return trip scheduled.

Newt Gingrich chimed in that he was born in PA, with family still in central PA. He knows Pennsylvania, and says they would never go for a radical socialist like Fetterman.

Well, I am not so confident as he seems to be that they will stop or prevent it. There are a few reasons for that which I’ll keep to myself. I would love to be proved wrong.

Revisiting Paine

From American Crisis: December 1776:

“There are persons, too, who see not the full extent of the evil which threatens them; they solace themselves with hopes that the enemy, if he succeed, will be merciful. It is the madness of folly, to expect mercy from those who have refused to do justice; and even mercy, where conquest is the object, is only a trick of war; the cunning of the fox is as murderous as the violence of the wolf, and we ought to guard equally against both.” — Thomas Paine.

Biden Syndicate: American Sellout

Remember, it seems like just yesterday, after the 2020 election the swamp of ex-security officials warned that no delays in naming Biden/Harris victors because it would create huge “national security risks.” They wasted no time as if prearranged.

Here it was in Politico at the time. “Danger, danger, Will Robinson!”

“A group of more than 150 former national security officials who served under President Donald Trump and other Republican and Democratic administrations is warning that the government’s delay in recognizing Joe Biden as president-elect poses a “serious risk to national security.”[1]

In a letter sent to the General Services Administration on Thursday and obtained by POLITICO, the former officials urged the agency to officially name Joe Biden and Kamala Harris as the apparent president-elect and vice president-elect so that they can access information “needed to address pressing national security issues, such as the President’s Daily Briefing and pending decisions on possible uses of military force.” “

What a difference a few years makes. Now we see that cagey, corrupt Joey — who had his records sealed in a vault in a DE University — threw up so many red flags you wonder how he ran for president, let alone secured the Democrat nomination.

(April 6, report)

In 2017 Hunter and James Biden secured a retainer for their China work totaling 165 thousand per/month. Well, nothing to see there, uh?

And then there were also over 150 flagged bank transactions of Hunter and James as suspicious activity, some back to 2014.

But it goes deeper. Now that it’s exposed, Congress oversight can’t get the documents from the Treasury department. Let’s see how that turns out?

Secretary Yellen is changing the rules on cooperating with legitimate oversight requests.

“The Biden Administration is restricting Congress’ access to SARs, and Committee Republicans are investigating whether this change in longstanding policy is motivated by efforts to shield Hunter Biden and potentially President Biden from scrutiny,” Rep. Comer wrote in his letter.

Now we see millions of barrels of oil from Biden’s emergency reserve release were sold to a Chinese company with ties to Hunter Biden and the CCP. It just gets deeper and deeper.

Then, Joey decrees that gas stations drop their prices and do it now! He demonized oil companies for profiteering.  Meanwhile, there is profiteering real close to the W H.

[1] No, actually Joe Biden is the national security risk — and he always was.

Bad Trip Down The H Corridor

I’m guessing that, at one time, most Americans have had one of those road trips that turns out so bad it becomes the butt of jokes, and a moniker for where you don’t want to go.

Bad trips I’ve had a few.

It serves the memory as a place holder for trips best not taken, for any reason. “Don’t do it.” And so it goes. I’ve had a few of them myself even if I have not been an avid traveler. Some of them were not a destination but a curse. I couldn’t wait to get out of there vowing to never to repeat the mistake of however I wound up there. Was it a wrong turn or a vortex I got sucked into?

I even took my wife on a few of them. Sure, they were usually good for a few laughs much later though there were valuable lessons learned, namely to never repeat it.  “The swamp, who knew that was there?” At least on some occasions I had bad vibes about the trip beforehand but said maybe it won’t be that bad? Get it over with.

I realize now that the proverbial bad road trip has become an apt metaphor for the Joe Biden presidency. You were somehow roped into going, or held hostage in the vehicle, and away you went on Joey’s spiteful adventure — destination unknown.

So you buckle up and try to make the most of the passage of time, which hopefully should bring an end to this stupid road tour. A barf bag would be helpful though it was never included in the package. So an ability to improvise was always a helpful asset.

The only nostalgia it has is to make you appreciate your departure point all the more. Oh, if one could only roll back the clock like it never happened? But no, it was too late for that now. You are at the mercy, or torture, of Joe Biden’s travel agency from hell. All you want to do is leave but you can’t, as if locked into a serial nightmare with your eyes glued shut. So there you are a hostage to his crazy itinerary, whatever the hell it actually leads to.

So complaining doesn’t do any good. In fact, it only incites determined perpetrators.

There is no amount of safety equipment that could prevent the inevitable calamity awaiting you ahead. Nothing can stop it. So this little metaphor goes on and on. It doesn’t seem to have an end like that nightmare. New plots keep rolling out as you try to thwart them to no avail. Disgust builds. You almost feel will being torn away.

Until suddenly you realize it is not just a real bad road trip but probably your last trip, anywhere. And there doesn’t appear to be anything you can do about it. No hotline or 911 to call for rescue. But that is just how you feel.

I hesitate to say there is no good end. Lessons learned are pointless because you should never have been there in the first place. It should not have happened, period.

Since we are here on the cusp of Memorial Day, when typical trips normally get started, it is worth considering the trip we are already on. Dragged kicking and screaming, against our moral will to somewhere dark and more uninviting than even the host.

Whatever our own plans were don’t seem to matter now, or are buried in the rear view.

Pete Buttigieg: hold my boob.

You just knew it would happen. The never ready for prime time Pete Buttigieg had to go there on the baby formula thing. He said it really has affected him too.

Buttigieg, who is openly gay, is the father of twins after adopting the newly born babies in September. The Daily Mail regaled about how “the baby formula shortage is affecting him and his husband Chasten as they have had to ‘root around’ and talk to friends out of state to get food for their nine-month old twins.”

“Like millions of Americans we’ve had to root around find different solutions. Spend more time clicking and clicking online – even get in touch with relatives out of state. We’re okay we’ve figured it out at least for now,” Pete Buttigieg told Sirius XM.

Look we knew he was really a boob but this is taking things a little too far. Past the obvious biological problems, he suggested they’ve figured it out. Figured it out?

It’s a shortage not an internet app. And he is in the driver’s seat. (pardon the pun) Could the guy get any more dense? So did he identify with formula-challenged parents?

Pete Buttigieg says formula shortage is affecting him, too. Someone get him Bette Midler’s hotline.

But Pete is not going to miss out on popular baby formula complaints… by piling on to say: Here, hold my boob!

Not So Funnies

Barefoot and pregnant

Now I can agree men are plenty capable of going barefoot, but getting pregnant? It’s not going to happen. Get over it.

How many genders does it take to screw in a light bulb? Two to hold it and 35 more to imagine it.

When I was 25, I decided to study abroad. 30 years later I’m still studying.

Can gender transition give you women’s intuition? Asking for a friend.

I decided to rename gender transition toxic masculinity.
Got a problem with that?

At the Pearly Gates, there is one line for entry and another for gender reassignment.

I tried to reimagine my identity once… that’s when they slapped the cuffs on.

The SOAF Doctrine

Everyone in the world knows what MAGA means thanks to Donald Trump. But now the Democrats have developed a new doctrine of their own. It is more insidious.

Democrats don’t brag about theirs, they just support it on all issues. In layman’s terms it is Screw America first. Or if you want to translate it: Sellout America First (SOAF) doctrine.

How’s that pan out in serious issues? Here’s only one example.

Their war on energy policy is actually kneecapping America. Yeah, the new green deal and all that is true but in the meantime it is even more malicious at the core.

Joey first restricts and constrains our new oil production any way possible. They’ve already done a stunning job at that. Then he uses Putin’s war on Ukraine as a justification to deplete – not drawdown or tap into – the strategic petroleum reserve. (SPRO) 180 million barrels over 6 months, conveniently before midterms as an extra political bonus.

Of course AOC and the Loony Left let it be known, they have no interest in refilling it later. They believe it is entirely unnecessary anyway and only want to deplete it.

That mad little Russian dictator, Vlad the Bad, could not have asked for more. It’s exactly what he’s been pushing for years So two birds with one shot, Joe appeases the wild green left and Russia, along with other tyrants, at the same time.

For the militant green freaks, this could not be better. First they loved the price spike to 5 bucks a gallon. It doesn’t even matter why. They liked all Joe’s restrictive energy policies, too, making new production into a fantasy. But then you put that together with depleting our national security preserve and what do you get?

You get less and less energy, regardless if it looks like you are begging other countries to produce more, as cover. Then we will have no choice but to rely on anything else, like their energy fantasies, except for fossil fuels. That’s one way to knock fossils fuels off our demand. Then you have to do all the crazy things they want , you have no choice.

It all fits into their crazy war on energy strategy perfectly. No matter the consequences, it is all a process of force. There is no way back once you go down the road. Then tear out any options to their green deal. That is their preferred method to everything, force.

You simply will have no choice, nor an emergency relief valve for when the SHTF.

Putin’s Duds Of Destruction

The Telegraph – “Ukraine war: Putin’s invasion stalling because majority of ‘dud’ bombs are failing to explode”

Also a Russian General who said the “special operation” would be over quickly has been killed in Ukraine. So it is now up to 15 top Generals and Russian military commanders that were killed by Ukrainians. Well, well.

https://news.yahoo.com/russian-general-said-ukraine-invasion-162705478.html

“[Gen]Rezantsev had reportedly told his men on the fourth day of their deployment that the so-called “special operation” would be over quickly. One soldier said: “Do you know what he told us? ‘It’s no secret to anyone that there are only a few hours until this special operation is over.’ And now those hours are still going.” “

Categorizing War

Sitting peacefully by the waterfront pondering what are the answers? But what are the questions? Are the ripples on the water the answers or the questions? Is the stone that made them the real problem?

That is hardly over dramatic, considering the circumstances or news feeds.
 
It strikes me as odd that for years we have been accused of being Russian trolls only to come face to face with real Russian propaganda. It is even worse than the fear mongers perceptions of it were. But forget past accusations, even NYT admitted denials about Biden were lies. It takes a war to uncover that bullshit.

Even a 4-year fake narrative – concocted by media and operatives here – was widely accepted by some until recently. But debunked doesn’t make it into the narrative.

Now we got a glimpse of what Russia and Putin are actually up to. It is so bad that some don’t even want to believe this reality could be true. There is a lot of denial out there – whatever the origins. Stories even surface of Russia abducting children from Ukraine.

So we have two factions, according to public consensus in media anyway. One side is anti-war and the other being the neo’s – with each side being defined by their opponents respectively.

It boils down to anti-war siding with Putin, they claim, and the other war faction opposes him. Things are not always what they appear.

One thing I despise is broad brushing large groups, just like pigeon-holing people into identity groups. Even when they don’t fit. Also some of us want to oversimplify, even when it is as complex as war. Yet some wars defy all those stereotypes.

The two sides, under their paradigm, come down to two quandaries. The anti-war side saying no war at any cost. The other neocon (neoliberal) side presumably sees no war it can refuse. Both stereotypes are a mission impossible to me.

The antiwar side must realize there can eventually be conditions which you cannot repel from a war. And the neo-side must realize that there are times when you have to resist the impulse to go to war. Those sound more authentic than their common ideological perceptions.

 

On the upside, it has to be an incredibly interesting time to be a psychologist or therapist today with this plethora of issues on which to blame human behavior problems or anxiety. I mean is this a rich climate or what? It is a psychological smorgasbord out there, probably no better time for psychology.

That is not to make light of mental problems. Though the war stand is a fascinating thing to the human psyche.

 
I saw one man talking about how he was always an ideological antiwar guy but he finally rejected that position and went to Ukraine to help. He said the antiwar stand no longer made rational sense to him, and never will again. I can understand that.

Still there is the other neocon side. They are fighting the impulses to see the reasons to jump headlong into a hot war. Because, with the dismal record over the last 20 years, they cannot now justify a pro-war position.

But one area everyone seems to agree on now, from both camps, is doing what they can do to help the victims of this unjustified invasion. Give them real aid and supply what they need to repel an invasion.

There are many who believe in negotiating at all costs to bring a solution, to be agreed on by both sides. But what if you have one party who is unwilling to agree on anything? That party, the invader, wanted war from the beginning and why they declared it.

Antiwar idealists have to come to terms that doing nothing in the face of this evil is condoning it, maybe even perpetuating it.

Then you have those idealists who say continuing aid and supplying victims only draws out the “inevitable” result. But isn’t that the same as conceding to the evil? The only benefit they point to is that it ends quicker and maybe not as many people are killed.

The bitch of all this is that we have seen all these conditions before but we looked the other way and ignored them – genocides and brutal slaughters, besides WWII. But they still happened. True we never got involved in those the way we are getting involved helping the Ukrainians. So this is a bad thing? It doesn’t follow.

Apparently much of the world knows this will not end well if we just sit back and do nothing. Again, that is not a bad thing to accept.

Sure, we have our own problems at home too. Well, you could probably always make that claim. We have severe problems. No, I don’t want to see this become only a diversion from those problems. But I don’t want those other problems to make it impossible to do what we can in this war. I guess by now you can see I am trying to be objective, even if I know one side is correct.

There is also another matter. I’ve seen lots of newsletters from Christian organizations who claim to see it one way too. They only accept the antiwar side as moral. I have problems with that. I heard it from the same folks before, no war is ever justified.

There were plenty of them around at the time of the Revolution who said just chill and stay with the King. That is best. So why is it they cannot oppose authoritarian power? How is that God’s will? But during the Revolution some sided with the King, making them opponents to settlers. They were not conscientious objectors; they actively opposed a new free country. Consequences of actions?

 
The details of the Ukraine invasion are bad enough on a daily basis, but the circumstances are just as bad.

For instance, a man takes his army into another country and starts making all kinds of demands. He declares the country needs to be demilitarized and denazified. He bombs and destroys large swaths of its structures killing thousands of civilians. He particularly aims at civilians, hospitals etc. He pushes millions of the residents out.

He claims the reason he is doing it is due to threats he perceives from them and his neighbors. He plots to kill the leaders of the country or run them out. He wants to install his own people. (Democracy and sovereignty be damned) He dictates the conditions on anyone giving them aid, or interfering. In effect, he acts like he owns the place without having any legitimate authority.

He claims the sovereign country has no right of self-determination at all.
Where have I heard that?

No Greater Love Has A Man

 

At a certain point a man can become a prisoner to his ideas. He can also become a hostage to his ideology. Then no amount of ransom will do.

What bothers me in this war, as with many issues, is not the issue itself but the surrounding discussion, or lack of it. In the greater conversation, it reveals what is important to us as a society.

Maybe I am as fascinated by the reaction as the event itself. Either is disturbing. I could make a list of items that bother me about this war, as provocative and unjustified as it is.

For example, we value peace and Russia values war. You could not have two things more diametrically opposed. We value security and they value war of might.

Might makes right in their minds.

We value life; they affix value to the cost of killing and particularly innocent civilians. We strive to limit conflict and prefer resolution; they strive to escalate conflict to achieve their goals and deter resolution. They don’t care about the methods used to achieve their desired ends. We make moral judgments where they endorse immoral means. Morality is not a principle to them but only a tool to use against their enemy.

We value saving lives and they put value on killing lives. Maybe it is inherent in their DNA, but that is further than I want to go here.

So in the conversation or reporting on the details of this evil war, without a wider discussion much gets lost in the details. That is not to minimize the details of the war at all. They are critical to the record. However, one has to rise above that to ideals that bind people and unify them. A lack of that today is what does bother me.

You think of Churchill and others who rose to the times, but then you look at leaders today. That is what people see in Ukraine’s Volodymyr Zelenskyy – regardless what you thought of him before – a man who could speak on moral grounds without fear. That in the face of a brutal war is commendable. It is real not a façade.

There is a complete lack of that by our leaders today. Since they are so used to speaking on political terms, win or lose, they lost touch with moral principle or just plain don’t care. Politics has become the only unifying ideal to them. That is what is wrong with us.

But we are still the same people at heart that we were in past times. Most of us are capable of seeing moral principle even if they don’t. We can’t dismiss it. That principle still unites, as Trump proved.

We long to hear someone like Ukraine’s president talk of moral terms about war, speaking to the justification of peace not might. It still stirs the passion of people, so all is not lost. A pity our own leaders could not take a cue from him to rise above political or ideological narrative. Churchill did it but they later tossed him out, used and discarded.

You wonder what Zelenskyy’s future will be whenever this is over, if it does end? But he will be known as one who rose to the times, not fled from them, stood firm in the face of aggression not appeased it. One who made use of his voice for a higher purpose than a self-serving political career. Now who could fault him for that? Who could fault Churchill for what he did?

Another problem evident in this whole mess is a concept. When we say no one likes war that is not entirely true as we see with Russia. Some of us wish we could abolish war. Would that we could. (enter hideous Jennifer Granholm laugh here)

Something has changed since WWII, not to exclude the wars since – even if they did not call them that. Somewhere the entire debate and problem turned into a diatribe about WWIII. We are to avoid it at all costs. It is always noble and good to avoid war, except that alone has become the overarching goal. Anything to avoid a world war or WWIII. Avoiding WWIII is not a policy.

But that translates into allowing anything under the auspices of avoiding a WWIII. And Russia is very attuned to that sentiment. Translate that to “these people will accept or endure anything rather than have WWIII.” So WWIII has become the enemy, not real circumstances. It has turned into the main problem not a solution. But WWII is what finally ended the rise of Hitler. No one wanted it, even at the time, but it became the means to end Hitler’s final solution.

I only say that because today it has become the central problem. That is not fair to the legacy of WWII or the people that fought it. A lot can be learned about the brutality of war, and we should wish to avoid it. And weigh the cost carefully. Maybe much has changed because of the nuclear deterrent. But can it not be used negatively in the same way? I think it already is, at least by Russia. They extort it.

So World War as defined has become the greatest enemy. But when World War is the chief enemy, everything else becomes acceptable and tolerable. That even allows for threats of nuclear war, as Putin is demonstrating. It is now a cudgel. Could a mushroom cloud be preferable to a World War? That is the provocative calculation they are making.

We now hear that Russia’s doctrine is escalate to deescalate. What a twist. They believe in escalating as a means, in order to to force appeasement. Put nuclear weapons into that doctrine and you have a toxic mix.

So instead of World War being a deterrent, it becomes an excuse for any type war short of that. Just as long as it isn’t, or certainly must not lead to a World War. It is hard to wrap your mind around the rationalization for war. A World War turns from ultimate solution into the high bar. That philosophy should seem scary.

I mean we have lived in a post World War world for decades. It’s like telling a cop that he must never confront a killer because we know where that might lead. Can’t be too safe, you know. And if we don’t believe in the process of charging him, it may be best to let it be.

If Washington is not going to do anything about our spending problems, then maybe we should not worry about spending. In fact, that sounds like an ideal excuse to do more spending. See the way deterrents and accountability work, or should work? Take away that deterrent and you have chaos. If you simply say that we will never have world war again, we have compromised the deterrent. If we say we would never fire a nuclear weapon under any conditions, then we lost the deterrent. When there is no justice there can be nothing but chaos.

Some may not like that system but those are the guidelines to preserving a civilized world. And some don’t like it.

Whatever the stakes, whatever it takes, we must accept anything to avoid World War 3. A new doctrine has emerged.

War On The Enemies’ Terms

When we look at Ukraine, we may see events but I see a psychological campaign. That could be narrowed down to a propaganda campaign. The West has to do much better in the propaganda arena. We cannot be failing at the essentials.

I don’t mean lies but if it is one thing you can count on, it is that Russia is lying about almost everything. Of course we have a better narrative so why don’t we use and take advantage of that? Instead we get a lot of “what we won’t do” from our leaders.

That is not the stuff to win a battle or war with. That is only defining your limitations to the enemy. On the other side, Putin makes every attempt not to be defined. He only forfeits any mystery about himself by his actions. That part is something like a political campaign. You define your political opponent early and often.

Now I am not saying it is the same as politics. However, many in this country have gotten so addicted to making everything into politics. Imagine if we broke down WWII into a political debate. It wouldn’t have helped anything. But that is what the new Left has become, a religion of politics. We have had that discussion here before.

At some point people have to realize there is something more than politics in the world. That is a dangerous view. We saw ideology was the great problem with Obama.

So Fiona Hill had an elaborate interview with Politico. Yes, she is of Trump impeachment fame but she does offer some insight other than disliking Trump now. It is a miniature historical lesson. (not a revision) It does not say Putin is a great student of history either.

 

Why is it that the West should suffer from a predictability crisis? The Left believes we must be predictable in every way and form,. Here is where that is the problem.

What have you if there is no war you are willing to fight, and that is your position, but your enemy sees no war it is unwilling to wage? Or in other words, there is nothing you would go to war for but your enemy will go to war for anything and everything. See what a predicament that is? It does leave self-defense but even that is determined by will.

So then everything you do is dependent on will or public perception – what people, by polls or other measure, are willing to do. Everything becomes a debate or public poll.

Russia doesn’t seem to have that problem. It has a man at the helm, be it a madman or monger, who is not weighed down by the will of the people. In fact that is irrelevant to him or his goals. We now see what happens when people don’t like what he does. So what?

So I am not arguing in favor of their system, but it is just the way it is. They are not saddled by popular perception. A similar thing works with China.

 

We say there is an ethical rule you cannot even talk about killing the leader of a country. Russia announces its main intention is to take out President Zelenskyy, even deploying assassins to kill him and members of government. His removal is the chief objective.

If we lay down all these lines, it is only a matter of time before the enemy challenges those lines. Then what? However, you have forfeited your element of unpredictability. You have only given your enemy a road map of what you will do, so that they can plan around your lines or use them to their advantage. What you ‘will not do’ is not a defense plan. Those are only your own limitations, not your enemy’s. They freely do anything, raising villages, bombing civilians, threaten nuclear facilities committing genocide.

As much as maybe the world has changed over the last fifty years, we have only grown more predictable. We have to stop putting ourselves into a box. And once in a while, if not frequently, we have to look at things from the enemies’ perspective.

There is a school of thought that thinks there can be an advantage to being predictable That is when your enemy does not expect your non-conventional means. Then you could throw them off with the element of surprise. Maybe but would it be better not to have strapped limitations on yourself first, like a suicide bomber?

So this is the way the debate is playing out over the no fly zones. Can’t do this, can’t do that. It is impossible.

Then we have to factor in that we have a General like Milley. We saw what he did with China and making strategic promises to them. What good is that, what did we gain?

The same people, maybe it was Milley himself, shared our intelligence assets with China about what Vlad the bad was up to. Then China shared it with Russia. This is how they conduct operations?

The other step here in this process is we must know who our friends are or who are not friends. You would think we would know that. Why act as if your enemy is your friend? What does that get you?

We have to stop playing these games, which are only like running psy-ops on ourselves. The enemy doesn’t care. They laugh incredulously at you as you bang your head.

But America is now awake to its threats, it was asleep for too long.

The Big Green Funny Farm

As to the US energy thing with the green agenda, there is a way to look at it. Here is the analogy:

Suppose you are going on vacation, just say, or any destination you wish. You go part way down the road and decide you no longer like or want to use the car anymore. Then what?

So you abandon the car right there without having a valid alternative. The only thing you know for certain is that you now hate the car. Of course the passer-bys would be laughing at you.

At that point it doesn’t even matter where you were going, your odds of getting there have just severely decreased, if they still exist. But no, your passion about it is so deep you have to make sure the car is destroyed so it can’t be used again by anyone.

Biden Unity Junk Bonds

Just when you think the unity of the world — crossing all political and geographical divides – looks authentically encouraging, the skunk enters the room and pisses all over the place.

On Monday Senator Schumer, from the crime-ridden NYC area, spoke on the floor of the Capitol praising the great coming-together unity, claiming it has been “much to the credit of President Biden.”

Did you ever hear such useless nonsense?

Pardon me, but what unified people was staring at the face of evil and one man who caused every bit of what we see. Along with the evil regime he runs that condoned it.

Further, it is the idea of many that this evil on the march is headed elsewhere as soon as it gets a foothold in Ukraine. That Putin’s war of hybrid evil is capable of and committing war crimes, humanitarian, environmental and ecological disasters across the region which will not stop.

Schumer can try selling that Biden credit message but it is preposterous. The only thing worse will be Biden’s State of the Union Speech in a fenced up, half-attended Capitol on Tuesday night. Never underestimate Joe’s ability to F*** that up either.

 “Biden unity junk bonds, get them while they’re hot!”

Absolutely as worthless as the man they are named after. A refugee in his own mind; surviving only on alternate reality fumes and a sycophant press.

Putin’s March Of Pain

Any doubts people may have had about the evil nature of Putin vanished into the sunset fast as the ‘war on Ukraine’ began. Not just a ruthless thug, as some called him, but he is capable of the same evils we’ve seen in history. He is now unleashed and on his way.

But what is the future of Putin and Russia, yet to be determined? So it will become a slave state for China and little more. Power will do that. Who cares how the Russian people, or Putin himself, feels that die is already cast. Russia will not operate on its own.

People thinking he has some senses yet to be awakened? Nope. What has been awakened is the evil that was always there, in plain sight. Just that some refused to see it.

One of the weapons Russians have in their arsenal is a thermal-type flamethrower. It literally lights the air on fire and then sucks the oxygen from people’s lungs. That weapon is on its way into Ukraine. God be with the people of Ukraine.

The Bible says judge them by their fruits. The real test is to ask one simple question: what great good has Russia ever done for the world? The answer is the answer. On the contrary, how much damage has it wrought on the world? (Irreparable harm)

Of course the same will be said for China one day, hopefully. Dictators and sinister regimes do not just fade away, but their fruits become obvious.

The old Russian maxim is “probe with bayonets; if you encounter mush proceed, if you encounter steel withdraw.”

This is Putin’s War — entirely of his provocation and making.

Earlier, Putin referred to people of Ukraine as neo-Nazis and drug addicts, claiming they(Ukranians) are committing genocide. (he has been quite the student of the current political rhetoric, hasn’t he?)

Then he was publicly called out by Jewish organizations representing the Holocaust. However, it is hard to attribute any rationality to Putin’s words, though loaded with symbolism. It is pure propaganda.

And like the demeaning words he uses, this is what you call people when you are preparing to slaughter them. But it is hard to have a literal response to Putin’s statements. Yet it is only a hint as to his plans. So it is he who is stopping a genocide while he commits it.

It is he who is prepared and determined to commit genocide and human atrocities. That is his plan. War crimes or war criminals have no limits, while testing ours.

People Lie And Democracy Dies

And now a message for our liberal friends, and I use the term loosely. What happened in Ukraine was not an act of democracy, in case you wondered. No one voted for this. It was pushed by force. I know that does not fit into your kaleidoscope glasses. It is very real.

War is not diplomacy. And radicalism is not just another hybrid form of justice.

But if you empower tyrants this is what you will get – whether they be Trudeau, Biden, Putin, Xi Jinping, or Chavez, etc. If that is who they are, in the end this is what you get in return. That is why you don’t put tyrants in positions of power, and why you take care whom you elect to positions of authority. Of course, that is when you have a choice.
