Senator Lindsey Graham has called for 'somebody in Russia' to assassinate their president Vladimir Putin. The Republican Senator invoked a Julius Caesar-style assassination of the Kremlin strongman—currently leading an invasion of Ukraine—during an appearance on Fox News' Hannity show and in a series of incendiary tweets on Thursday. 'Is there a Brutus in Russia? he asked. 'Is there a more successful Colonel Stauffenberg in the Russian military?' he tweeted, referencing the army officer who attempted to kill Adolf Hitler. 'The only way this ends is for somebody in Russia to take this guy out.(Snip)Graham's call for Putin to be assassinated drew a stern rebuke from Russia


South Carolina voters have a lot to answer for in keeping this joker in office.

Wow, Miss Lindsey, there must be some hefty blackmail documentation on you in the Ukraine. What you are suggesting in an act of war by the US against Russia. I’m always amazed that those who bleed for one set of people can be so ruthless against another. The pigs have been gorging themselves at the Ukrainian trough for decades. Their chickens are coming home to roost. I will not condemn anyone who may be able to expose that. Do I feel for the Ukrainian people? Yes, I do, just as I care about Christians being slaughtered on a daily basis in China and the Middle East. I care about victims who have died in this country from the World Economic Forum’s dictates on masking, lockdowns and vaccines. A fat lot more of them have died than are dying in the Ukraine. I’m hearing the same voices that advocated cutting off food, water, fuel and money to the Canadian truckers decrying that Putin is doing the same thing to the Ukrainians. (He isn’t, btw.) I refuse to cheer sending any part of what’s left of our military and resources to yet another situation that the global elite have decided to manipulate for power and money.

Graham and Hannity are both obnoxious. Graham is untrustworthy and should just go away. And Hannity just hypes and repeats himself ad nausea and with the same guests, all night long, night after night, month after month, year after year. And a US senator calling for the assassin of another country’s leader is outrageous. Is that how our Foreign Policy works? If the world can’t stop Putin, then it will play out. The US can’t do it because it elected two imbeciles as leaders. Actions have consequences.

There's no conceivable American advantage to Lindsay's blurting out what probably billions of people the world over are hoping for: that bullet from out of the blue. Remember that if Khrushchev and the USSR could have been tied to the assassination of JFK, that would have been a casus belli, and ruin would have followed. Putin is a madman, as he always has been, a madman with the largest nuclear arsenal on earth. Would he regard attempts on his life as worthy of popping off a few H-bombs? One would pray that that would never happen, but the Great War was kicked off by a political assassination. The same could happen now, particularly with the provocatively weak pResident * administration. Pray hard. Even so....

One other thing. #16 has a good memory. Sen. Graham did indeed call for demonstrators to be fired upon. He seems to have a thing about firing on those he considers unfriendly. He regularly votes to confirm terrible judicial and cabinet level appointments. South Carolina can do better. (I much prefer Sen. Tim Scott, and wish he had a better colleague in the Senate.)

There’s nothing or no one, to my knowledge, that says the long arm of Russian intelligence can’t reach out and smoke a sitting United States senator. Miss Lindsey makes very foolish statements that could have deadly consequences for him. Now it’s doubtful something like this will happen because in the long run Miss Lindsey serves Pootie Poo's interest better by remaining alive. Saying the stupid, dangerous, foolish things he just did. But when the dogs of war are unleashed, no one knows where they’ll go.

Just a thought on leadership - The Scriptures are written for our learning. When the Israelites followed their own thoughts and ways, without consulting God’s providential help and guidance, they always lost the battle and suffered the resulting consequences. When their leaders, such as Joshua, looked to God before acting, they were ultimately victorious when they, and “their houses”, served the Lord. If there was true courage in Washington D.C., we would hear and see leadership like that of Joshua, and others throughout all history, who knew and understood where their strength resided and let the world know it. That is leadership that can be trusted and followed.

Guess I'm in a minority on this thread. Like Lindsey. But, occasionally he says the wrong thing. The problem with offing Putin is the assumption that his replacement would be better. And if the assassin was from another country it might result in another war. Vlad the Impaler is smart enough to know he can do what he's doing because no country wants a war with another country that has nuclear weapons. If saying stupid things is wrong there are people who should pay the price before Lindsey.

The mass migration lobby, with deep financial ties to billionaire George Soros, is praising President Joe Biden’s beginning stages of opening a refugee pipeline from Ukraine to the United States. As Breitbart News reported, Biden’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas announced that about 75,000 Ukrainians in the U.S. will be able to remain in the country and secure work permits for at least 18 months under a Temporary Protected Status (TPS) designation. Nearly 30,000 Ukrainians are illegally in the U.S. and could be eligible for Biden’s TPS. A host of Soros-linked mass migration groups had been lobbying Biden to open a refugee pipeline from Ukraine
