White House deputy press secretary Andrew Bates hammered former President Donald Trump for heaping praise for days on Russian President Vladimir Putin. 'Two nauseating, fearful pigs who hate what America stands for and whose every action is driven by their their own weakness and insecurity, rubbing their snouts together and celebrating as innocent people lose their lives,' Bates tweeted from his official government account Thursday morning. Bates shared an article about Trump telling a crowd at Mar-a-Lago Wednesday night—as Putin began his assault on Ukraine—that the Russian leader was 'pretty smart.'(Snip)Later Tuesday, White House press secretary Jen Psaki hit back at Trump.

Comments:

Profiles in American leadership. On a different timeline, members of the Bidet junta would swing.

Is this the best the administration can do? This has happened on Bidet's watch and he let it happen!! Any amount of projection is not going to save his party this election and his job for 4 more years

How do these low lives ever get to these positions? No class or maturity whatsoever. I would hate for children to see how these so called adults behave. Trying to take the blame off their incompetence by calling other people names. Isn't that about a Gr 1 mentality?

While another communist in the White House gets ugly with his Putin and Trump comments, Trump has been quoted twice this week saying that Putin is a "pretty smart" and a "genius." Given the gravity of Russia invading an independent European country, such comments do not help the focus on making America great again.

Trump wasn't praising Putin. He was stating the obvious. Putin is a smart man. He may be a tyrant. He may be evil. But he isn't stupid. He isn't incontinent. He knows where he's at at any given time. And he doesn't spout gibberish. Biden couldn't coordinate a military draw down and withdraw. Putin is about to take an entire country, and all the left can do is slander Trump.

I wish the DPS would tell us what Joe stands for. On Trump, he really doesn’t have to keep saying how smart Putin is. You really don’t have to be too smart to outsmart Biden any ways.

Also, the occupation government in the USA has been poking at Russia for years, blaming them for interfering in our elections, calling them evil, etc. Perhaps Putin will release a very real dossier on what the Brandons have been up to all this time! Imagine the fun we'll have.

Seems to me one tiny detail is being left out. If PRESIDENT Trump and Putin were such pals why didn’t Putin invade while PRESIDENT Trump was in office. Then PRESIDENT Trump could have helped Putin. Another minor detail. If Biden does not support Putin invading Ukraine, why didn’t he stop Putin. Putin is not afraid of ole lunch bucket Joe. That’s why Putin waited till now. But woukd have invaded Ukraine if hitlary had been elected. Putin just had to wait till PRESIDENT Trump was put and Joe in. Oh but Putin had to bounce now, in case Republicans win mid terms. Wonder if Ukraine is going to ask hunter for their money back.

President Houseplant claimed when ran the election campaignthat he was the one to reign in Putin. Funny how Putin threatened Ukraine during Obama's and Biden's terms in office, no? Bates' yammering and braying about Trump is revealing-the Dems knowTrump kept Vlad in check by being energy independent. Vlad is't scared of a fight-he is terrified of being bankrupted.

Once again, Demon-Rats have nothing to make them look the least bit competent, so they attack President Trump!!! President Trump said basically what I have said many times. Putin is extremely evil, but he is also a very strong leader who loves his country and does what he sees is best for Russia. Period. Contrast that to Senile Joe bidet -- also evil, who hates his own country, and is totally incompetent and impotent. FJB!!!

One human trait that is always evident on the left, and is seen all too frequently on the right as well, is the desire to see those who oppose you as somewhat lessmentally astute as you are. Obviously of they were anywhere near as smart they would accept the undeniabe genius of your position, right? That is not even remotely true. I have always taken issue with people who assert that what our opponents do is due to stupidity. It never is, no man (until arguably Biden) has ever held the position of POTUS who was not a good bit smarter than the average bear. We hated Clinton, Obama and Carter but don't kid yourself, they were very intelligent men just lacking in many other traits. To assume your opponent is acting stupidly is to give him a great advantage. You cannot win on the international stage with the assumptionthat your opponent is somehow mentally lacking because he is not. Far safer to assume he is much smarter than you and then act accordingly. Putin was smart, he could have taken Ukraine at any time, even when Trump was in office. He waited and assessed his position and then moved when his political cost would be cheapest. He knew Trump would make the annexation of Ukraine very painful. Biden will give it away for almost nothing.

#5. Look at the political cartoon below the Lucianne must reads list. Putin IS a master tactician. He has the U.S. and Germany over a barrel. NATO is hamstrung because attacking Russia in Ukraine will trigger the invasion/occupation of the Baltic countries, Moldova and parts of Poland. If NATO wants a war, Putin will give it to us!

Just for the record, these are the quotes I found. “I went in yesterday, and there was a television screen, and I said, ‘This is genius,’” Trump told radio host Buck Sexton in an interview on Tuesday. “Putin declares a big portion of the Ukraine – of Ukraine – Putin declares it as independent.” He added sardonically, “Oh, that’s wonderful.” “The former US commander-in-chief said such a turn of events never would have happened if he were still in office, accusing his predecessor of incompetence while referring to Russia’s Donbass move, including Moscow’s potential peacekeeping mission, as “smart.” “That’s the strongest peace force – we could use that on our southern border,”Trump quipped. “That’s the strongest peace force I’ve ever seen. There were more army tanks than I’ve ever seen. They’re going to keep peace all right.” End of quotes. I suspect the transcript misses the sarcasm. Apparently if you don’t pepper all your language with what a “bully” putin is you’re a pig.

One of the posters here needs to do some independent research. Putin isn't attacking a whole country. Selective strikes are being done on Bio-Labs. Ukraine is a deep state hotbed for nefarious money-laundering of all sorts of ne'er-do-wells, including the Deep-State, Clintons, Bidens, and likely a host of others. Putin doesn't want or need Ukraine and he certainly doesn't need a 'gain-of-function' bio-weapon produced in his backyard, so to speak.

How low we have fallen. It is absolutely appalling that a representative of a United States President should say such things. What a low class fool! President Trump was not praising Putin's character or motives, only his strategy and tactics which, so far, have been very successful. Hitler had some very successful strategy and tactics in the beginning of WWII and we learned from them. Stupid Psaki said, "As a matter of policy, we try not to take advice from anyone who praises President Putin and his military strategy". Well, if they are taking advice from whoever masterminded the Afghanistan debacle, they need to stop it. We are being led by idiots.

Nothing I have heard or read about Trump’s statements indicate he is praising him at all. Quite the contrary, he continues to point out the cunning and guile that Putin has in dealing with these effete pretenders who are leading us on a path to hell. Of course, the totalitarians in the global junta don’t give a damn about truth. They are the people in charge, and they will kill us all if they are not stopped.

The democrats, never Trumpers, and the deep state are doing everything they can to make Trump radioactive. It is to be hoped that it won't work and I think they know it. Also, If the Ukrainians have the guts and savy, perhaps they can make Russia pay. Many so called "slam dunk" wars don't turn out as exspected. Cf, WW1, the Civil War, the Cuban Bay of Pigs were all thought to be simple and quick. None ended as planned.

The Biden Justice Department is ending an initiative aimed at Chinese espionage and intellectual property theft over concerns it created a perception of racism, according to a top official on Wednesday. Assistant Attorney General for National Security Matthew Olsen announced during a speech at George Mason University that the department was scrapping its China Initiative, even though an internal review found no indication of racial bias or prejudice. Olsen said, according to a transcript of his speech: We have heard concerns from the civil rights community that the ‘China Initiative’ fueled a narrative of intolerance and bias.

The Utah Republican blamed Russian President Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine on a decade and more of U.S. weakness, also alluding to former President Donald Trump’s foreign-policy slogan. “Putin’s impunity predictably follows our tepid response to his previous horrors in Georgia and Crimea, our naive efforts at a one-sided ‘reset’ and the shortsightedness of ‘America First,’” he said.

Gael Monfils, 35, announced his withdrawal from next week’s Davis Cup on his social media account due to health problems. “Hello everyone, I wanted to give you some news following my recent withdrawals from tournaments. I suffered a minor health glitch (probably following my third dose of vaccine),” Monfils revealed on his Twitter account. “On the advice of my doctor, I have decided to take some time to rest.(Snip)It can be recalled that another tennis player, Jeremy Chardy, developed a ‘series

Former President Barack Obama issued a message of support for President Joe Biden on Thursday, urging Americans to unite behind economic sanctions against Russia. “Every American, regardless of party, should support President Biden’s efforts, in coordination with our closest allies, to impose hard-hitting sanctions on Russia,” Obama said in a statement sent to reporters, defending Biden’s sanctions as a serious attempt to put “a real price on Russia’s autocratic elites.” Obama’s statement of support for Biden follows his own failure to stop Putin from annexing Crimea in 2014 when he was president. The former president also urged Americans to embrace any economic pain that they would suffer

White House deputy press secretary Andrew Bates hammered former President Donald Trump for heaping praise for days on Russian President Vladimir Putin. 'Two nauseating, fearful pigs who hate what America stands for and whose every action is driven by their their own weakness and insecurity, rubbing their snouts together and celebrating as innocent people lose their lives,' Bates tweeted from his official government account Thursday morning. Bates shared an article about Trump telling a crowd at Mar-a-Lago Wednesday night—as Putin began his assault on Ukraine—that the Russian leader was 'pretty smart.'(Snip)Later Tuesday, White House press secretary Jen Psaki hit back at Trump.

Russian troops have invaded Ukraine from three directions in an all-out war. Ukrainians have had to rush into full civilian mobilization in an attempt to survive it. At stake is the post-Soviet world order that provided for at least some semblance of diplomatic engagement over use of arms between major powers.Those life-and-death issues aren’t the big priority, at least not to former Secretary of State John Kerry. This morning, he expressed hope on BBC Arabic that Putin will remain a partner with the West on … climate change. No, seriously:(Snip for tweet) “Massive emissions consequences” from the war that Kerry only lightly acknowledges in this interview?

President Joe Biden will nominate federal Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson on Friday to replace Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer, which would make her the first black woman on the high court's bench should she be confirmed by the Senate. Breyer announced his retirement last month after 28 years on the Supreme Court, effective when the current term ends this summer. That paved the way for Biden to fulfill his 2020 campaign promise of nominating a black woman as a Supreme Court justice.
Failing cable news nets CNN and MSNBC

There is a certain symmetry to the notion that the spokesmouth for the failing Biden administration reportedly is being assiduously courted by the two failing cable news networks, CNN and MSNBC, both of which have endured near-catastrophic ratings declines in the era of Biden. More Biden cowbell… yea, that’s the ticket. A scoop report by Dylan Byers, formerly of NBC and now the founding partner at media website Puck, gushes over Psaki and the reported talks she or her agent are having with the two networks. (snip) Paski’s job is to make the Biden administration look good and sell its performance to the American public. Let’s see how she’s been doing

The Russian invasion of Ukraine isn’t going as easily as I think Vladimir Putin thought it would go. As we noted earlier, they are facing some tough fighting from the Ukrainians as well as thousands of protesters in Russia who have come out against the war. That’s quite something, given the oppressive state of Russia and how they would face immediate retribution. Yet, protesters have come out anyway. Ukraine fought back to recapture an airport the Russians had taken. So, Russia isn’t going to be able to do what they wanted because they haven’t met the goals they were trying to meet by now – which was to seize all

Back in December when longtime broadcast journalist Chris Wallace announced he was leaving Fox News and the coveted anchor perch he had held there for some 18 years, speculation ran high that the “new adventure” he hinted at heading off to involved a stint at CNN, which is Public Enemy Number One as far as Fox News viewers and a growing number of cable news watchers across the country are concerned.Sure enough, not long after Wallace revealed his departure from Fox, a statement was issued noting he would soon be joining CNN+, the paid streaming version of CNN which is expected to debut before the end of March.

On Wednesday’s broadcast of “NBC Nightly News,” Secretary of State Antony Blinken said that the U.S. has hit Russia “hard” with sanctions, he has reason to believe Russia will be engaging in something similar to a full invasion of Ukraine before the end of the night, and “everything is in place for Russia to move forward.” Host Lester Holt asked, “Do you have reason to believe that, before this night is over, Russian forces will be engaged in something akin to a full invasion of Ukraine?” Blinken answered, “I do. Unfortunately, Russia has positioned its forces at the final point of readiness across Ukraine’s borders, to the north,

The Secret Service is telling Republican investigators that it cannot find communications related to Hunter Biden’s travels for 2010, 2011, or 2013 — when President Joe Biden was the vice president. Republican Sens. Chuck Grassley of Iowa and Ron Johnson of Wisconsin sent the Secret Service a letter last month seeking unredacted records tied to Hunter Biden’s travels between January 2009 and January 2017. They asked for full travel records and criticized the agency for years of “inappropriate redactions” — especially related to a controversial Kazakhstan trip in 2014. The senators also lamented that three years of documents seemed to be missing entirely.

Sen. Mitt Romney condemned Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in a statement late Wednesday that also took a shot at both of America’s last two presidents, including a famed line thrown at him by Barack Obama. The Utah Republican blamed Russian President Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine on a decade and more of U.S. weakness, also alluding to former President Donald Trump’s foreign-policy slogan. “Putin’s impunity predictably follows our tepid response to his previous horrors in Georgia and Crimea, our naive efforts at a one-sided ‘reset’ and the shortsightedness of ‘America First,’” he said. Mr. Romney once was ridiculed by Mr. Obama, when the two men faced off

In the wake of the Freedom Convoy in Canada, there’s a convoy of American trucks heading to Washington, D.C. in time for next week’s State of the Union address. I guess we’ll get a chance to see if the American left can be as tyrannical and authoritarian as Canada’s ruling Liberal Party has been. The Capitol Police is getting ready to flex its authoritarian muscles already. “Law enforcement agencies across the National Capital Region are aware of plans for a series of truck convoys arriving in Washington, DC around the time of the State of the Union. As with any demonstration, the USCP will facilitate lawful First Amendment activity,” announced a press release

As RedState reported earlier, Secretary of State Antony Blinken shared on Wednesday evening that he believed Russia would fully invade Ukraine within hours. That has now been confirmed by none other than Vladimir Putin himself. Per an announcement from the Russian president, his military forces are moving into greater Ukraine, including Kyiv, in order to “demilitarize” and “denazify” the sovereign nation. None of this is hypothetical anymore. Explosions are being heard in multiple Ukrainian cities. It is clear that a major military attack is underway. Putin also levied some disturbing threats against the west, seeming to suggest he would be willing to use nuclear weapons
