World War I was no picnic for the Germans. About two million German soldiers were killed and countless others were crippled. The Austro-Hungarian Empire on the side of the Germans lost another million and a half. The loss of life on the side of the Allies was similar, with about two million dead amongst France, UK, Italy and Romania, in that order. The American dead were a fraction of that, a little over 100,000. The Allied country suffering the greatest number of dead was Russia, where life has always been cheap. Two million Russians were killed, matching the combined total of the other Allies.

The real risk is a lower standard of living for Americans, and further impoverishment. Too many Americans think it is free.

I think re-establishing the badly battered rule of law in this country should be our top priority .Wokenss is a far more deadly enemy of our children than Russian nukes.

It’s nice to read a glimmer of sanity. The US was willing to nuke millions because Russia planned to put missiles on our border. Now we/nato are trying to do that to them. And we’re surprised at the response? The smiley face mentality might work in kindergarten and on cnn and in the woke Dim party. And it might work for the bidet family and others to loot Ukraine. But elsewhere in the world there are dead serious men making dead serious plans. Maybe the US should try to get a little serious. A glance at the dim party leadership makes you doubt that is possible. No wonder they’re completely unserious in their ideas except in looting.

Very well thought out article. Putin invasion of the Ukraine is debacle, so far, the Ukrainians have fought them to a stalemate. I hear from a cousin in Europe that guerilla fighters in the countryside are causing extensive damage to Russia's supply lines and killing many soldiers too. There are also reports that Russian morale is even lower the pResident poopy-pants rating. Putin would be smart to get an assurance from Ukraine that they won't join NATO and end this disaster.

Hopefully, Russia doesn't have a Hitler like Germany had. How often has Russia resolved their problems at the point of a gun? Ukraine is another example in a long line of examples. The people running Russia have alot to account for. If there is any justice, they should all have a meeting with a Russian firing squad.

Let's think this through for a change. The Weimar years were ones of constant turmoil in Germany, a slow-simmering civil war, complete with real violence, which eventually led to Nazi ascendency. It was more than inflation and wheelbarrows full of cash for bread. The Russians are not known as good losers. The last Czar's downfall began after the Russian defeat by the Japanese in 1905. If Ukraine defeats the Russians there will be political and military repercussions, and they are likely to be revolutionary and violent as various interests gather forces to institute "reform", whether "democracy" or "neo-communism" to fill the vacuum left when Putin is deposed. And then what? Do the former Warsaw Pact and Soviet Republics stand by, or do they jump in to get in some vengeful kicks themselves? And what if this civil war spills over into the NATO-member Baltic states, Poland or Romania? Does NATO respond under Article 5 and intervene/invade? To what lengths? On whose behalf...or taking them all on? Beware of what you wish may get it.

The world of woke is rife with incorrect assumptions about racial minorities. First is the assumption that racial minorities are criminals. That assumption is wrong. It’s true that a disproportionate amount of crime – especially the violent kind – is committed by racial minorities. That’s true even after normalizing the numbers for the increased poverty level of minorities. I suspect this is due to a familial breakdown caused by many complicated factors. But it’s certainly not true that minorities are all, or even generally, criminals. To the contrary, the great majority of minorities are law-abiding citizens.

Joe Biden seldom talks extemporaneously. He has a teleprompter in front of him, so all he has to do is read aloud. Even at that, however, is too much for him. On his recent trip to Europe, he lacked the focus to simply read what was in front of him. The choreographed show was basically one big photo-op for him to portray himself as a leader, statesman and sentient being. He failed.He insisted on ad-libbing over and over, to the detriment and detriment of himself, Ukraine, America and the world.

Ketanji Brown Jackson made a promise in her Supreme Court confirmation hearing this week before the Senate. KBJ is the person whom biologist Joe Biden assures us is “a black woman” in accordance with his earlier promise to nominate a person of that sex and color as a great act of noblesse oblige for which he, as a non-black non-woman, we think, should be honored in history, especially in view of his dementia. We have to take Joe’s word for all this. Since she’s not a biologist, KBJ herself is unable to confirm that she’s a woman and it’s not clear whether she’s able to confirm that she’s black.

Joe Biden promised that in picking a nominee to fill the upcoming opening on the Supreme Court, he would not consider any white or Hispanic or Asian people and not consider any men at all. He promised to consider only black women. Only about 2% of American lawyers fall into that demographic. In overtly discriminating against the other 98%, Biden committed an obvious violation of the Civil Rights Act, but I rather doubt Biden’s Department of Labor will file suit. True to his promise, Biden found a black woman lawyer to nominate. Her name is Ketanji Brown Jackson. It was Biden who touted his nominee as “a black woman”

I explained a month ago that a Russian invasion of Ukraine would be a disaster for Russia in today’s global economy. Russia would be financially crippled by sanctions and would alienate its European oil and gas customers. Moreover, I explained, the Ukrainians are not defenseless, and would probably put up a spirited fight. The Russians had little to gain in an invasion and much to lose. I confidently concluded that Vladimir Putin was not foolish enough to invade. Events have proved me right in every respect except my conclusion. It turns out that Putin was indeed foolish enough to invade. His invasion has not gone well.

Last August, Joe Biden abandoned Afghanistan to 13th century barbarians. The result was and is an ongoing bloodbath. Getting out of Afghanistan may or may not have been a good move, but the way Biden did it was destructive and disgraceful. Biden’s generals told the press that they recommended to Biden a more orderly approach. Biden denied that. He essentially said his generals are liars. Paradoxically, Biden simultaneously contended that his cut-and-run was “an extraordinary success.” If he believes that, then why doesn’t he say, “Yeah, the generals recommended a more measured withdrawal, but I was smart enough to override them in order to obtain this extraordinary success.”

Joe Biden canceled the Keystone Pipeline on his first day in office. Since then, he’s put a moratorium on numerous American oil and gas projects. The result, naturally, has been less production of inexpensive American oil and gas, more importation of expensive foreign oil and gas, and less abundance of both. This has produced ever-increasing prices at the pump and in your utility bills. The oddity is that all this is political posturing is premised on the absurdity that burning American oil and gas produces greenhouse gas emissions, but burning foreign oil and gas does not. I shouldn’t say this is an oddity. It’s the way

Upon it depends our own British life, and the long continuity of our institutions and our Empire. The whole fury and might of the enemy must very soon be turned on us.

The Mossad is the feared Israeli intelligence and espionage service established upon the creation of Israel in 1949. The Mossad is effective and efficient. Along with collecting intelligence, the Mossad from its outset has carried out “targeting killings.” They eschew the word “assassination” because that implies murder. They say their killings are in self-defense because their targets are terrorists bent on destroying Israel. Occasionally, the Mossad acts quasi-judicially. The most notorious was their 1960 kidnapping of Adolf Eichmann in Argentina. They covertly transported Eichmann to Israel where he was tried for war crimes in organizing and administering the Holocaust. He was found guilty, correctly and fairly, and was hung.

It was difficult to miss what appeared to be the projectile of avian fecal matter that scored a direct hit on the president’s left lapel. Although, after much mockery, the White House has given clarification on the supposed flying mystery substance that many aren’t buying.
