The world is blowing up, most notably the former Soviet Socialist Republic known as the Ukraine is disintegrating before our eyes. The eastern part of the country identifies with Russia while the western part wants to be part of the EU. One thing’s for sure: Obama has no clue how to deal with it.
As happened, here is raw video of the Russian invasion of Ukraine. These first choppers are likely carrying elite Spetsnaz troops (estimated at 500 hundred of a larger invasion force). As US news catches up with coverage on this story over the weekend, they will be the guys with the faces covered to avoid detection and recognition. Ruthless doesn’t do the word justice with these guys.
A much larger contingent of (125,000) Russian forces are poised just over the border. And CNN does a ‘good job’ of helping make this charade into a civil rights battle. But that is another day.
The best parallel for this could be 1938, and the German invasion of the Sudentenland.
Since taking office, Obama and Hillary Clinton have dismantled the nuclear deterrent around Poland and The Baltics that was envisioned under Reagan.
The US missile defense complex in Poland, also called the European Interceptor Site (EIS), was part of the Ballistic Missile Defense European Capability of the US. The value of such a deterrent became much clearer on August 14, 2008 when Russia invaded 2008 South Ossetia. Who Said That???
For all we see on TV and in papers, few nailed the events of the last week better than the person quoted below.
“After the Russian Army invaded the nation of Georgia, Senator Obama’s reaction was one of indecision and moral equivalence, the kind of response that would only encourage Russia’s Putin to invade Ukraine next.” (*Scroll down to see who this was.)
Oh yeah…remember how Mitt Romney was called out by Obama during the Presidential campaign as being stuck back in the Cold War? This video is truly revealing when viewed with today’s eyes.
Romney was right about a lot of things (Shaka to Scott):
God Bless America – Pass This On!!
*The visionary? It was Sarah Palin in 2008:
The CBO came out today with some devastating information about ObamaCare – Actually, ObamaCare Is Kinda LIke A Tax and It’s Going to Result in 2 Million Fewer Workers by 2017 “An almost two percent reduction to the numbers of hours worked purely because of the law’s effects is kind of a big deal, and you can bet that this is not going to be welcome news to the handful of panicking Senate Democrats trying to stave off awkward questions about their “yea” votes for ObamaCare by focusing on their economically populist messaging strategy.” Yep.
Barry’s Minions Have Quickly Responded: White House Pushes Back on CBO Report “Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisors Jason Furman told reporters that the law would not reduce the hours being offered by employers. Instead, Furman said, ObamaCare allowed greater “choice” — for workers to scale back their hours to spend more time with their children, or to leave their jobs to launch a small business or startup. “This is Barry’s not businesses cutting back on jobs. This is people having new choices,” Furman said.” ARE YOU FREAKIN’ KIDDING ME???? You gotta see this guy – and he’s Obama’s top economic advisor???? HOLY TOLEDO!
Irony, Much? Mayo Clinic Employees Get Benefit Cuts, Cost Hikes After ObamaCare “The premiere health-care provider network and big Minnesota employer will have to cut benefits for its own employees, in part to comply with ObamaCare’s coverage mandates and in part to deal with exploding insurance premiums under the new law.”
Pass the Pork – Oh Wait, It Already Passed. Senate Ready To Pass The Farm Bill and All Its Non-Improvements It preserves such important and essential things like the Wool Trust Fund and The Maple Tax Act for Chuckie Schumer.
Senators: Kerry Admits Obama Syria Policy Is Failing “In a closed-door meeting, two senators say, the Secretary of State admitted to them that he no longer believes the administration’s approach to the crisis in Syria is working. Peace talks have failed, he conceded, and now it’s time to arm the moderate opposition—before local al Qaeda fighters try to attack the United States.” Gee, what a surprise.
Herridge: Former CIA Director Morell May Have Altered Benghazi Talking Points To Benefit Obama Gee, what a surprise, Part II
Oh Goody – Sandra Fluke’s Running for Congress: Ask For Government to be Your Sugar Daddy, Become a Democrat Congressional Candidate. Sounds About Right This seems appropriate:
ICYMI: Navy SEAL Sniper Chris Kyle Honored at Super Bowl by Joe Namath “U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle was celebrated for being considered “America’s deadliest sniper” with 160 confirmed kills out of 255 claimed kills. He was shot at a gun range by another veteran on February 2nd of last year. God bless you Chris and all of our fallen brothers and sisters.”
Oh yeah – wondering what happened to the Broncos? Look no further….(Shaka to Rose)
