Ukraine's Talk of Taking Back Crimea Leaves
U.S. Divided

Ukraine's insistence on reasserting control over the annexed Crimean Peninsula is controversial for United States citizens, exclusive polling for Newsweek has revealed. Throughout the past year, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has repeatedly committed to "liberating" Crimea from Russian control. The peninsula was illegally annexed by Moscow back in 2014. "Crimea is our land, our territory," Zelensky said in January. "It is our sea and our mountains. Give us your weapons—we will return what is ours." His words coincided with reports that the Biden administration was warming up to the idea of supporting Kyiv in its goal of retaking Crimea.


Only 28% support Ukraine reclaiming land lost in 2014 (during Obama-Biden's reign).

Do Americans know that the American taxpayer is paying the salaries and PENSIONS of Ukrainian civil service employees? Spare me any complaint about the US federal employees - at least they're American. I keep hearing from experts like KT McFarland that we are taking out (or trying to) Putin without directly confronting him, via Ukraine, but what happens if Putin leaves? There's no discussion about who will replace him and I doubt it will be the Russian version of George Washington. Impeached Trump for a phone call to the same man that Biden is sucking upto while billions of our money is sent there into the Black Hole of Kyiv. And yet, too many Republicans are going along with this travesty.

Controversial? It's a provocation that the little clown just financed with a half billion dollars of American taxpayer dollars. Joe is being played like a cheap fiddle and for reasons not yet being made public, Joe was made an offer he can't refuse.

Instead of publicly attempting to demonize Putin, Biden should be privately talking to him about stopping this shooting war in Ukraine. If Ukraine invaded the Crimean Peninsula they would have to also attack the areas of Russia near Crimea, once they do that, who knows, to stop that the Russians could deploy tactical nuclear weapons ending up starting a wider war. The Ukrainians should not trust Biden one bit, who has sent hundreds of billions of American taxpayers dollars and modern weapons to Ukraine, a country known for corrupt activities, without any safeguards to know how that money and weapons are being spent or used, or has been sucked off through corruption, as we can see how Biden operates in that respect, as after Biden saying the the USA will send main battle tanks to Ukraine, we are now finding out that the tanks that Biden says that he intends to send to Ukraine do not currently exist, and must be manufactured and only then will be supposedly transported to Ukraine possible sometime next year. That means Biden must think that the war in Ukraine will still be ongoing until the tanks arrive and the Ukrainian crews are trained to operate them. Beyond that Biden has a political record of running away from past foreign wars when the going really gets tough, remember his quick bail out from Afghanistan, and before that Biden did not support the military capturing Osama bin Ladin who perpetrated the 9/11 attacks in NY, PA, and DC murdering thousands of Americans. You can also safely bet that Biden supported the USA bailout from Vietnam after 58,000 Americans were killed there, in a war that was started by the liberal Democrats.

Russians live there now, it is historically Tatar, and I do not see why every spare penny on Earth has to go to getting it for Ukraine. This war is starving and freezing everybody. Plus which, to prepare for it the Ukrainians thought in advance to corrupt our democracy so they could have their crooked friend in charge of us, Biden, who basically sniggers when people ask him questions. He likes turning his back on us, he probably would like to moon us if he dared. This is their work. In spite of it, I still want to save them from torture but if they are trying to leverage that care into helping them get Crimea even if the rest of us have to fight WW3, then, no. People are starving and freezng. To get you down off the wall from the electrical cord and whips, yes. To get you Crimea, no. What is the diff between you saying Crimea is really yours versus PUtin saying Kyiv is really his. And don't answer. Just, shut up about your ancient holdings and why you need to evict everybody from where they live. Not going to help you with that. Biden is your fault. He hates us, and you did this.

It’ll never happen. I just spoke to a Russian friend. The word back home is that, up until now, this war has mostly been a defensive one, and it will soon turn into a major offensive. More people need to read their Russian history.

PORTLAND, Ore. — Winter storms sowed more chaos across the U.S. on Thursday, shutting down much of Portland with almost a foot of snow and paralyzing travel from parts of the Pacific Coast all the way to the northern Plains. The nearly 11 inches that fell in Portland amounted to the second snowiest day in the city's history. It took drivers by surprise, stalling traffic during the Wednesday evening rush hour and trapping motorists on freeways for hours. Some spent the night in their vehicles or abandoned them altogether as crews struggled to clear roads. Other commuters got off spun-out buses

The Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) has upped its estimate for the number of animals killed by the derailment of train cars carrying hazardous chemicals in East Palestine, Ohio, to nearly 44,000. The department estimates around 38,222 minnows were killed by the derailment within a 5-mile span, plus around 5,500 other species, including other small fish, amphibians, crayfish and macroinvertebrates, ODNR Director Mary Merks said in a statement. The original estimate was approximately 3,500 dead aquatic species, based on observations from Feb. 6-7, shortly after the Feb. 3 derailment.

U.S. Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg has called out the rail operator at the center of a hazardous train derailment in Ohio. In a sharply worded, three-page letter sent Sunday to Norfolk Southern Railway president and CEO Alan Shaw, Buttigieg accused the Atlanta-based company of repeatedly prioritizing profit over safety -- a problematic ethos within the larger transportation industry that the secretary said has contributed to a number of derailments over the years.

Joe Biden acquired his job through a legal process. However, he did not earn enough verifiable votes to justify the certifications in six key swing states. This issue is addressed in my new book, but here is some of my reasoning. I have limited myself to one example of unverifiable votes for each of those swing states. Arizona At an Arizona Senate Committee hearing on January 24, 2022, we learned that precisely 95 percent of Maricopa County overseas military members (and their families) voted for Joe Biden. That is an amazing (as in phony) percentage, given that the overall county-wide vote was fairly even between Biden and Trump (51 to 49%).

Rep.

The bill, introduced by Rep. Nikema Williams (D-GA), would permanently bar Trump and several top aides from the Capitol because of their attempt to "undermine and overturn the 2020 presidential election." The proposal asks the House and Senate Sergeant at Arms and the U.S. Capitol Police to take "such actions as may be necessary" to keep Trump from entering the halls of Congress forever.

The Wall Street Journal reported on Thursday that the Pentagon plans to deploy between 100 and 200 troops to the self-ruled island, up from around 30 a year ago.  Servicemembers from the Marines and the special forces have been sent to Taiwan in the past and the number has fluctuated over the years. However, this uptick would mark the biggest increase of American troops on the ground in Taiwan in decades.

But NPR announces the layoff of 100 people, and it is a “major loss.” Um… okay. National Public Radio will reduce its workforce by 10%, which means the termination of around 100 people. Positions that are currently vacant will be eliminated. The outlet reported that CEO John Lansing is attributing the move to a lack of advertising dollars, specifically in terms of its podcasts. NPR has an annual budget of $300 million and its revenues could be short $30 million to $32 million.
