Ukraine has launched two major kamikaze drone strikes that took out one of Putin's prized nuclear bombers in a spectacular fireball and caused significant damage to a train station used to supply Russia's invasion of Ukraine. New footage of the strike on Soltsy airbase in the Novgorod region shows one of Russia's nuclear bombers being swallowed by an enormous fireball. Smoke billowing from the fireball could be seen for miles around. Russia's defence ministry tried downplaying the attack, claiming that just one of the bombers was hit: 'The Kyiv regime carried out a terrorist attack

So Russia will escalate accordingly. Ukraine cannot win but keeps poking the bear. Victoria Nulane, Jake Sullivan and Blinken just itdhing to get us involved. Our “mission” will creep. Disaster will ensue. The delcate balance among the major nuclear powers held us from a major war for decades while hawks got us involved in “conflicts” that were costly in Amercan lives and treasure, and never won. Now a crazy American president, a significant beneficiary of the corruption in Ukraine, lead by his greedy hawk advisers, is going along with the latest “mission creep”. Zelensky cannot ultimately prevail. And Biden is putting all of us in harm’s way. Not supporting Ukraine does not make one a Russia/Putin lover. That notion comes from a storehouse of ignorance about our history. The object is to avoid war; not to be drawn into it by the military industrialist complex, who are always the only “winners”.

Can't help but think Russia would have rolled over Ukraine by now if they were capable of it. The war has been going on for over a year. The face slapping contest continues! Let this be a lesson for all the war mongers out there. Wars are expensive, kill lots of people, and extremely unpopular.

"Kamikaze" drones are called bombs. Unless they have tiny little Japanese pilots strapped to them.

#4. The anti-war left does not give a hoot about the Russia-Ukraine shooting war because there is no current danger that they or their young adult children will be drafted and sent to Eastern Europe to fight in a shooting war. What they have not taken into consideration is that those circumstances could quickly change once Russia gets tired of the current tat for tat war and fires a tactical nuclear weapon into Ukraine. When Biden Is on vacation someplace, as he is half the time, the Obama crew that is really running the Biden Administration and that staffs the White House could easily take the wrong decision and before you know it US and NATO forces could them find themself’s in a shooting war with Russia and maybe even with China.

Actually obliterating an airfield is nearly impossible. Blowing up aircraft is very effective, billions of rubles burned up in that fire. Not easily replaced. As to "Russia escalating", they are already as "escalated" as they can manage, so the "don't make the Russians mad" approach is not a real thing. Putin is as angry as he can be, doing all he can already.

A new Des Moines Register/NBC News/Mediacom Iowa Poll has been released. Likely Iowa caucusgoers put Donald Trump in the lead, with his percentage growing by 5 points after the Georgia indictment was announced. Trump has a more than 2-to-1 lead over Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, the number two candidate in polls. Take all polls at this point with a grain or three of salt, as the Iowa caucuses are the first test for Republican presidential primary candidates. The Iowa caucuses are five months away, a lifetime in politics.

FULTON COUNTY, Ga. - After receiving his consent bond order from a Fulton County judge, it appears former President Donald J. Trump will surrender at the Fulton County Jail this Thursday. He announced his intention to turn himself in via his social platform, Truth Social. "Can you believe it? I'll be going to Atlanta, Georgia, on Thursday to be ARRESTED by a Radical Left District Attorney, Fani Willis, who is overseeing one of the greatest Murder and Violent Crime DISASTERS in American History," the former president posted.

Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis has reached a bond agreement with one of former President Donald Trump’s 18 co-defendants: conservative attorney John Eastman, according to a new court filing on Monday. Eastman’s $100,000 bond order is the first to appear on the Fulton county court website. Eastman faces multiple criminal charges for his alleged role in helping Trump try to overturn the 2020 election results in Georgia. All of the 19 defendants in the case who were indicted last week, including Trump, are expected to turn themselves in this week ahead of a Friday deadline set by Willis.

Governor Chris Sununu (R-NH) said Monday on CNN’s “Inside Politics” that former President Donald Trump can not win the presidential election in November 2024 because his ceiling of popularity is at 45%. Sununu said, “So one of the key points of that poll showed that about a third of Trump supporters would consider somebody else. When you look at the favorable/unfavorable of all the different candidates DeSantis is better than former President Trump, Tim Scott has strong numbers. Other candidates are showing strong numbers.” He continued, “I think we all agree the former president’s floor is high, 32, 33, 34%, but his ceiling is also very low. Realistically

Near-miss collisions between planes have made headlines in recent months, but the startling incidents have been happening far more frequently than previously thought, a New York Times investigation found. On average, there have been multiple airline close calls per week so far this year, the report says. In July, there were at least 46 near-miss incidents involving commercial airlines, according to Federal Aviation Administration safety reports reviewed by the Times. Earlier this month, a Southwest Airlines flight and a private jet came within 100 feet of one another on a San Diego runway, sparking two federal investigations. Just a few weeks prior, a flight attendant was injured after an Allegiant Air flight

MOSCOW - At least two people were injured on Monday when parts of a Ukrainian drone destroyed by Russian air defences fell on a house in the Moscow region, the regional governor said. Nearly 90 airplane flights in and out of the capital were disrupted after Russia said it jammed a Ukrainian drone in the Ruzsky district west of the capital and destroyed another one in the Istrinsky district nearby. Arrivals and departures from Moscow's four main airports - Vnukovo, Domodedovo, Sheremetyevo and Zhukovsky - were restricted, disrupting 45 passenger planes and two cargo planes, Russian aviation authority Rosaviatsia said.

On Joe Biden’s first day in the White House, he put a stop to the border wall construction. Biden is vehemently anti-wall and border control. Now the Department of Defense is quietly selling off materials that were purchased but not used. Joe Biden does not want the construction of the border wall to begin again. Republicans are trying to pass legislation to finish the wall. So, the Biden administration is selling off millions of dollars of border wall materials as quickly as possible. So far, 81 lots of 28-foot-tall hollow beams have been sold for about $2 million. There are photographs of steel “square structural tubes” for sale on

Russia's unmanned Luna-25 spacecraft has crashed into the Moon after spinning out of control, officials say. It was Russia's first Moon mission in almost 50 years. The craft was due to be the first ever to land on the Moon's south pole, but failed after encountering problems as it moved into its pre-landing orbit. It was set to explore a part of the Moon which scientists think could hold frozen water and precious elements. Roscosmos, Russia's state space corporation, said on Sunday morning that it had lost contact with the Luna-25 shortly after 14:57pm (11:57 GMT)

With David Weiss' promotion to special counsel, the future of the Hunter Biden probe appears unclear. Charges have been officially dropped in Delaware as part of a stated plan to charge the president's son in another jurisdiction. That begs the question of why the charges were ever in Delaware in the first place if they supposedly don't belong there now. If it feels like the DOJ is hoping to draw a less-skeptical judge to rubber stamp yet another sweetheart plea deal, that's probably because that's what appears to be happening. A recent leak revealed that while the FBI believes it has evidence to charge Hunter Biden with FARA

The Biden campaign plans to highlight what it's calling an "extreme MAGA blueprint" by GOP candidates during the first Republican presidential debate, according to a memo first shared with NBC News. The memo, written by campaign communications director Michael Tyler, lays out five criticisms of the GOP field, including Republicans' views on cutting Social Security and Medicare, lowering taxes for the rich, banning abortion, protecting the gun lobby and undermining democracy, which focuses on election deniers. "The 2024 Republicans are focusing on litigating the benefits of slavery, which books they want to ban from schools, and a made-up war on 'woke' that they themselves can’t even define," the memo said.

Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) said it’s time to take a “political risk” and consider changes to Social Security and Medicare benefits for young people. Changes to the programs are necessary, or they could run out of money for everyone in about a decade as the country faces a rising national debt, the presidential candidate said. “The most disgusting part of Joe Biden’s State of the Union address this year was when he stood up, and he said, ‘We’ll all agree, right?

As many as 1000 persons, many of them children, may have died as a result of the fire in Maui. The exact toll -- above the hundreds documented -- is difficult to assess right now as the bodies are charred beyond recognition and scientific equipment to test the remains are not readily available, but the tragedy -- naturally and without basis -- is being blamed on "climate change” in many of the media accounts. In fact, these people died as human sacrifices to green policies, legislative and corporate missteps, and administrative incompetence.

An August poll from Fox News found that Christie is viewed rather unfavorably by every political, racial, and economic demographic. Overall, 56 percent, a majority of American voters, express disdain towards Christie. Only 22 percent of 1,002 people polled said they held “favorable” opinions of the former New Jersey governor.
