    We said this the day after October 7th. Israel doesn't need us and we do nothing but hinder them with our money.

    Four dead in Ohio. Boomers last dance


    Sending troops into Ukraine will be the leftists Vietnam


    Probably worse given the speed at which information is transmitted now. Walter Cronkite only has a couple minutes each night - and it took years to spread the news on the level of clusterfuck in the name of Domino Theory.

    Expect 1968 level riots this summer as the globalists try to deflect with Antifa and BLM “protests”

    PGOS never answered my question about whether Putin would use tactical nukes if the US and NATO were succeeding in rolling back the Russians from Crimea - just that he wouldn't because? As it is, the Eternal Warmongers have stopped telling us what the end game is for Ukraine. No real mention of preserving a non-existent democracy recently. So far it's "As much as it costs, for as long at it (what is "it"?) takes." On the other hand, huge political pressure from the commie Jews and wine moms and commie muslims in the US for a cease fire in Gaza so that Hamas can regroup and go back to working on a Jew free Israel.

    All cultures are equal, some just have spicier food.

    FRENCH STUDENTS TERRORIZED BY JIHADISTS [UPDATED]

    In France, at least two teachers have been murdered by Muslim students, one of them beheaded. The French press reports that “death threats and threats of rape have become common among pupils.” Those threats are directed toward both teachers and fellow students.

    Now, students at dozens of French schools have been sent “threatening messages and beheading videos” by Islamic radicals. The story is hard to parse out, and more is, perhaps, being concealed than revealed:

    At least 30 schools in the Paris region have this week received threatening messages accompanied by “shocking” footage of beheadings, the education ministry said on Thursday.

    That effort is being made in support of Islamic terrorism:

    The establishments – mainly secondary schools – have received “serious threats” containing “justification of and incitement to terrorism,” a representative of the education ministry told AFP.

    The Muslims apparently made use of software that France uses to connect students and teachers. Reportedly, they “‘hacked a student’s email address’ in order to distribute the message and a beheading video.” They also have been making bomb threats:

    In the department of Seine-et-Marne, to the east of the French capital, a secondary school received a message saying that explosives had been hidden throughout the establishment “in the name of Allah”, a police source said.

    The latest threats follow a flurry of false bomb alerts targeted schools, airport and tourist sites in autumn 2023.

    All of this is due to France’s feckless immigration policies. But, to be fair, their policies are a lot better than Joe Biden’s.

    Putin's not using nukes

    Ukraine's not getting Crimea back. They were asleep at the wheel in 2014.

    Spring Offensive 2024 seems to be as successful as last year’s effort. Paging the Ghost of Kyiv, your country needs you.

    https://nypost.com/2024/03/30/world-news/zelensky-ousts-key-staffers-as-ukraines-war-against-russia-continues/

    Zelensky ousted two key staffers — his top aide, Serhiy Shefir, along with the nation’s Commissioner for Soldiers’ Rights, Alyona Verbytska, along with four other government workers.

    No reasons were offered for their expulsions, The Kyiv Independent reported.

    Interesting account to follow. Fairly certain it is Russian propaganda but videos seem legit. The drone warfare is wild. Spoke to my family member and US is quickly shifting to small armed drones, which honestly is terrifying.

    A good accompaniment of music, such as above, makes the whole Ukrainian fiasco easier to stomach.

    Yup. Drones are the future of warfare. Wars will be video games played by gamers in bunkers and won by robot swarms.

    Ukraine is sending glider drones 1,000 miles into Russia to hit their drone factories

    The US needs to keep the initiative. A swarm of 1 million Chinese terminator drones is something no one wants to see, especially a US carrier group…

    Land armies still need to occupy gained territory and both the natural resources and transportation grid for commerce. Blasting entire cities with drones doesn’t do much other than lead to a massive rebuild, and modern wars aren’t WW2 with defined allies.

    Germany still depends on Russian energy sources to power its society. They don’t want that to end right now. Sure, Biden is blasting pipeline to smithereens, but that could not have made Central Europe happy and it seems “we” did it for no reason other than to think it would scare Putin away from Ukraine. Didn’t really hurt Russia at all and may have gained some support from his citizens for him. Meanwhile Biden has to cheat to be in the WH at this time next year and is as unpopular with his base as any president in my lifetime. Rich whites and government workers really are enthused for him and I’m not sure who else in any large numbers.

    Elon was at least tolerated by the left if not occasionally celebrated until he purchased Twitter and turned it into a free speech platform. The left hates free speech like a slug hates salt. The tide on support for eternal war in Ukraine seems to be ebbing on the left as Gaza has become their focal point. Since according to the dazzler the great success of the dementia patient in "tightening up" NATO, the Euros should be able to negotiate some deal to end the war, if they want to. Macron of France is delusional if he thinks that France can send ground forces into the Ukraine and remain President of France.

    Mainstream Media Reluctantly Admits Elon Musk's Ukraine Takes Are Proving Correct

    BY TYLER DURDENFRIDAY, APR 05, 2024 - 06:20 AM

    "So, Musk may not be too wide of the mark after all": Politico. Something which could hardly be imagined a year ago or even six months ago has happened this week: Politico op-ed voices agreement with Elon Musk on Ukraine.

    Of course, the Wednesday piece still takes customary shots at the "wayward" billionaire and owner of X: 

    Wayward entrepreneur Elon Musk’s latest pronouncements regarding the war in Ukraine set teeth on edge, as he warned that even though Moscow has "no chance" of conquering all of Ukraine, "the longer the war goes on, the more territory Russia will gain until they hit the Dnipro, which is tough to overcome."

    "However, if the war lasts long enough, Odesa will fall too," he cautioned.

    Statements like these, and Musk's supposedly 'alternative' view of the crisis in general, have long invoked the wrath of mainstream media pundits. Yet publications like Politico now sing a different tune, but only after President Zelensky himself has signaled just how dire the battlefield situation actually is for his forces. 

    Politico has previously featured headlines like ‘Elon Musk Is Transmitting a Message for Putin’. Musk in his recent Odesa commentary did no such thing, but merely urged the Ukrainians to find a way forward towards peace at the negotiating table before it's too late.

    Again, lines such as the below coming out of the heart of the media establishment would have been impossible to come across a year ago... from Politico

    With a history of urging Ukraine to agree to territorial concessions — and his opposition to the $60 billion U.S. military aid package snarled on Capitol Hill amid partisan wrangling — Musk isn’t Ukraine’s favorite commentator, to say the least. And his remarks received predictable pushback.

    But the billionaire entrepreneur’s forecast isn’t actually all that different from the dire warnings Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy made in the last few days. According to Zelenskyy, unless the stalled multibillion-dollar package is approved soon, his forces will have to “go back, retreat, step by step, in small steps.” He also warned that some major cities could be at risk of falling.

    But we should point out that Musk has been a realist from the start, more in line with analysts such as John Mearsheimer, voicing positions which have proven right time and again, despite contradicting the bandwagon mainstream consensus at every turn.

    And here's the kicker in the conclusion, from the Politico op-ed...

    "We don’t only have a military crisis — we have a political one," one of the officers said. While Ukraine shies away from a big draft, "Russia is now gathering resources and will be ready to launch a big attack around August, and maybe sooner."

    So, Musk may not be too wide of the mark after all.

    Of course, it's more convenient at this moment to make such admissions. To review, not only has last summer's Ukrainian counteroffensive been universally acknowledged as a failure, but more grim developments for Kiev have emerged just this week, seen in some of the following fresh headlines:

    Zelensky Signs Law Lowering Conscription Age to 25

    Ukraine loses 80,000 soldiers since January, Kremlin claims

    Ukraine losing so many troops can't retrieve bodies, soldier says

    Yet still, Washington is pressing forward (or rather throwing more Ukrainian troops to needless, tragic slaughter by promising things it can't deliver), with US top diplomat Antony Blinken on Thursday saying from Brussels...

    "Ukraine will become a member of NATOOur purpose at the summit is to help build a bridge to that membership" — in reference to NATO's annual meeting set for July. Sadly, things are set to get bloodier and more unpredictable, raising the spectre of a WW3 scenario, before they get better.

    ”Wayward”

    That’s actually hilarious. Speaks his own mind and doesn’t let the government censor his platform means he’s “wayward.”

    If Elon was a black African they’d be smearing him as an Uncle Tom.
