Poland announced on Tuesday it was ready to hand all its MiG-29 fighter jets to the US, apparently as part of an arrangement to deliver the warplanes to Ukraine's armed forces where they are desperately needed to fight off invading Russian forces.The idea has been floating around for more than a week after Ukraine pleaded for more aircraft but the plan has been dogged by questions about how to deliver the planes to Ukrainian territory without dragging NATO into the conflict. Tuesday's announcement will be seen as a Polish effort to force the US and NATO to go further in backing the Ukrainian fight, but there are still mounting concerns

This doesn't make sense. Poland should just declare them surplus and tell the Ukrainians to come pick them up for $10 each + fuel charges. The US doesn't need to be involved.

Trading old Rooskie fighters, some of them junkers, not all even flyable for US fighters in fully operable condition. Heck of a deal for Poland. And where do your get spare parts for MiG-29s.......Moscow. What could possibly go wrong?

If they are Soviet era aircraft they are pretty old (20-30 years) and once they are on Ukrainian air bases you have to figure that the Russians will make efforts to take them out. Chances are Germany will not go along with those jets flying over German (NATO) air space to Ukraine based upon Russian warnings that they would consider any country involved in transporting NATO origin aircraft to Ukraine to have become involved in the ongoing conflict in Ukraine. There is reporting that the USA is going to backfill the Polish Air Force with F-16 aircraft from stocks in the USA. If that is so, that’s where the military-industrial complex fits in, as they will have to refurbish the F-16s before they are transported to Poland, and then build new fighter aircraft to replace the F-16s that Biden will be handing over to Poland.

Readers are missing the point, Poland does not want any part of fighting Russia. The Migs 29 are now significantly west of Ukraine at Rammstein AB Germany requiring maintaining (no MiG 29 parts in Rammstein AB) and will need refueling to get back to Ukraine. Now Biden has to risk an act of war against Russia by providing maintenance and armament and refueling the jets on way back to Ukraine. Poland called his bluff.

The Poles have seen war. They were dominated by the communists for forty years. They are smart not to let Stinkin’ Blinken try to goad them into drawing NATO into a global conflict. The best solution is for Zelensky to negotiate a neutral Ukraine, surrender to Russia what is of greatest concern to the Russians, and get back to enriching the kleptocrats the pollute our government. It’s best for all concerned.

Even Poland makes the Lyin' Joe bidet administration look even more idiotic and incompetent than they already did. These are antiquated Russian MIG jets. The Russians designed and built them, and have far superior jets now. Poland gets to dump these useless jets on the Ukrainians -- who will then sacrifice some trained pilots as they are easily shot down by the Russians (since the Russians know the MIG's capabilities and weaknesses). Meanwhile, the Poles get brand new F-16's on the American taxpayer's tab. Over in Poland, they are telling Senile Joe bidet jokes!!!

When it comes to prognostications about these upcoming November mid-terms, President Joe Biden hasn't gotten any less delusional. In fact, every time he opens his mouth, it becomes clearer and clearer he doesn't know what he's talking about. This is further evidenced by remarks made on Thursday night for the DNC winter meeting. As highlighted by Alex Gangitano for The Hill, the president not only warned the Democrats about the highly likely outcome of Republicans taking control of Congress, but encouraged party members to keep doing what they've been doing.

Smollett was found guilty back in December, after he conspired with two men to make it seem as if Trump supporters had attacked him and tied a noose around his neck at 2:00 AM, in the middle of a polar vortex. While he received an initial outpouring of support, including from Vice President Kamala Harris, it quickly became apparent that his story wasn’t adding up. Why was he out after midnight getting a sandwich in sub-zero temperatures? Why didn’t he call the police right away? Why did he leave the noose on until police got there?

The Senate passed a $1.5 trillion funding bill Thursday night to keep the government running through September and bolster both humanitarian and military efforts in Ukraine. The legislation will head to President Joe Biden for his signature. The House passed it on Wednesday. The Senate approved the funding bill in a 68-31 vote. Congress had to approve a spending bill by Friday to prevent a government shutdown. Lapses in funding can lead to furloughs of federal workers, hinder the economy and force the government to scale back services. Lawmakers passed a full-year spending bill after keeping the lights on for months through temporary continuing resolutions

And he vowed Russian President Vladimir Putin would pay a 'severe price' if he uses chemical weapons in the Ukraine and said U.S. troops would not join the fight as not to provoke World War III. Biden announced Russia's change in status of a trade partner in lockstep with the fellow G7 nations to make it an even heavier burden on Moscow to carry. The move will also deny Russia the ability to borrow money

Conventional wisdom is that the 2022 midterms will be a political bloodbath for the Democrats. For starters, historically speaking, the party in power typically loses seats. But on top of that, Biden’s poor approval ratings are dragging down his entire party, and more than 30 House Democrats have announced their retirements. Nevertheless, during the Democratic National Committee’s winter meeting on Thursday, Biden insisted his party could defy history. How? All they’ve got to do is replicate their 2020 enthusiasm. “If we do that, we’re going to keep the House and keep the Senate — and add seats,” he claimed. Good luck with that. I suppose it’s Biden’s job
